ThkTkiuc.ne is enteked attheDim-on Post office kok Transmission as Second Class Mail Matter. The bill giving Montana an additional District Judge has become a law. The wool sales at London continue to be well attended and the prices firm. Silver has dropped to 95 *£, which is two cents lower than it was two weeks ago. The last pair of odd names to bob up in Pennsylvania politics are Fruit and Freeze, for Congress. The Anarchists wanted an equal division, and as time is money, they are getting it in the Penitentiary. Some of the late orations on the Fourth were enough to make the American eagle vomit his Fourth of July dinner. A man in Philadelphia died while wait ing lor the waiter to bring his dinner. Poor soul! starvation is a terrible death. The telephone patents have only seven years to run, and then a man can use one without putting a mortgage on his house. If Toole declines the Democratic nom ination for Congress, there is Hon. Bill A. Clark, of Butte, with his "barrel" of tnonev. Andrew Carnagie says that less than one fifth of the operatives employed in the manufacturing industries of this country are natives. It is probable that a Taylor will be Gov ernor of Tennessee. The Republicans will run Alfred Taylor and the Democrats will run his brother Robert Tavlor. In Ottumwa, Iowa, a man named Stormy Jordan has been sentenced to one year in jail for selling that insidious poison, bottled beer. Jordon finds it a hard road to travel. In the basement of the Smithsonian In stitute at Washington is a snake-breeding nursery, from which reptiles escape and scare people, who promenade on the In stitute grounds. it is probable that Major Maginnis will be a member of the Indian commission to be appointed soon to treat with the Indians of Northern Montana and other tribes for a reduction of their reservation or their removal to other reservations. There is one comfort in considerin these imported Anarchists, with whom we are rapidly corrupting the society of our leading penitentiaries. The most of them have to do their cursing of our institutions in a foreign tongue, for they cannot even swear in English. American Missionaries to cannibal coun tries declare that the use of tobacco is the only protection against being eaten. They protest, therefore, that a church declara tion , - 'S a * nst P*P e means no mission arv ', n j eto some other way is found to make them loABMij to At tlie Tammany Hall celebiùi» 4 >rî of • the 4th of J uly Senator Y'ance of NoMh Carolina delivered fhe "long talk." He .used the occasion to tnske a very violent attack upon civil service'reform, denounc ing it as unconstitutional a*id undemocrat ic. The San Francisco Exdtomn-r declares that therein lie "struck the-' key note of Democratic sentiment, which' hi rapidly converging info unanimity of Democratic feeling," and adds that "Federal olTAes lie long to those who wih them at the polis." A statistical expert calculates that if 1, ,000,000 babies started together in the race ot life, 150,00a would drop out in the first year, 55.000 in the second, and 22,000 in the third year. At the end of the forty five years about half of them would be in the race. Sixty years would see 370,000 gray heads still in it. At the end of eighty years-there would be 97,000 remaining on the track ; fifteen years later the number would be reduced to 223, and the winner would quit the track forever a« the age of 10S. THF. FUTUR K OF STOCK It.VISING The future of the stockgrowing business in Montana is of more immediate import ance than is generally conceded among those outside of the industry. The owners of large herds are not slow to admit to their most intimate friends that there is good reason to believe that the time of the dissolution of large herds in Montana is almost if not quite at hand. The policy of the stockgrowers speaks louder than their words. From present indications the system of growing and fattening cattle on immense ranges will not continue many years longer. There is such a de mand for the grazing lands for settlement, and emigration to the west is so rapid— not only from the Old World, but from the eastern states—that many of these ranges ere long must cease to exist. The land will, in the course ot time, and that not very long one, be all divided up into private ownerships. Cattle will then be grown on a smaller scale by individuals; and as it is for the interest of the individual to grow the very best, it is fair to infer that the quality will be improved by the change from the present range system, which does not permit of that careful se lection and breeding that individuals with small herds can readily bestow. More time will be required to displace the large companies, who either have purchased or leased the tracks over which they range; but even these, like the Indian, will sooner or later have to go and give place to the individual settler. PRESS ASSOCIATION PROGRAMME. The programme is about completed for the "annual meet" of the Montana Press Association, which will lie held at Boze man, commencing Thurday, August 19, at 4 p. m., and continuing the 20th. Afi2:5c I p. m., August 21, the Association will leave Bozeman for Yellowstone National Park, arriving at Cinnabar at 5:20 p.m. Members can return from the Park at any time during the next ten days The com mittee lias arranged for a $2 rate of trans port from Cinnabar to Mammoth Hot Springs and return, and is negotiating for reduced rates in the Park. The exercises at Bozeman aside from business matters, will consist of an address by Judge Matheson, of the Billings Gazette ; an address by Col. W. F. Saucers—if he can be present—on behalf of the honorary members; a poem by Guy X. Piatt, of the Butte Inter Moun tain-, continuation of the History of Mon tana Journalism, by Will Kennedy, of the Misson/ian, and probablv others not yet definitely arranged for. Transportation to the convention and Park and return will be furnished to all active and honorary members in good standing, and their wives, by the L'nion Pacific and Northern Pacific Companies, and will be good for fifteen davs. THE STANDARD GAUGE. So much has been said and written about making a standard gauge of the Utah and Northern railway, and so thany rumors have been set afloat concerning the pro posed change, that everyone along the road naturally feels a lively interest in Its con summation. It now seems to he a settled fact that before many months roil by en gines and cars of the standard gauge will compose the trains on the Utah and North ern railway between Pocatello and Garri son. Some one asks "what is a standard gauge and why was it chosen as a standard ?" A standard gauge track is 4 feet 8 y t incties wide, and it is "standard" from pre cedent and custom. When Stephenson built his first locomotive, lie, for some rea son best known to himself, built it to the gauge of the old tramways—for vehicles drawn by norses—in England, which was 4 feet s y t inches That became what was known as the "narrow gauge 1 ' in England, and was naturally followed in this country to a very great extent. Some of our roads have a gauge of 4 fee! §4 inches, others 4 feet indies, and still others 4 feet 9 inches. In England they ha** a 6-foot "broad" gauge, and at one time tfiirf a 7. foot gauge. The Erie Road, built origin ally by the aid of English capital, was at first it 0 foot gauge, but in 1 S76 the chang ing of it to 4-feet S h indies was begun and now it i» ail of that gauge. lM» 9 i*T 1,1 K F THF V FT.I. Tin? l*t «suffîtes' veil) of the Rail Kelt! right of way bil? through the Northern Indian Reservations *\vs severely criti cized at Helena. The Independent (Dem ocratic) said: The whole pc/lfey of the Ad ministration in the West through the misdirected advice and !acll' actual knowledge un the part of Use headftrof the departments, in subjecting the Democracy of the citizen» of tins country to a «train which it cannot stand unless the conditions change. The Iteraid ''Republican) said : No one dreamed that the President would veto the bill, granting the right of way of railroads through the Indian Reservations of North ern Montana. The veto is bad enough if nothing had been said but with the reasons assigned by the President' it Irecomes sim ply absurd. It looks to common mortals as if the President had become v«to mad Travel in the National Park has already commenced. Numerous improvements have been made in various directions. The roads, especially, have been greatly improved under the supervision of Super intendent Wear. The tourist season now extends from June to November, instead of October as herctolore. At a camp meeting near Bozeman a child of 14 was married to a young man in his "teens." Why will Christian minis ters persist in performing the marriage ceremony in such cases? Surely the cause of religion cannot be well served when such outrages as this are perpetrated. It is estimated that about 125,000 head of prime beeves will be shipped from Mon tana this year. Although the grass is short, steers are said to be in better condi tion than they were at this time last year. The largest wool clip in Montana this year was that of Smith Bros., of Mussel shell—125,000 pounds. Col. Wm. Louis Schley, Grand Secre tary I. O. M. Maryland, found Red Star Cough Cure a perfect and certain remedy. Price, twentv-five cents a bottle. I DILLO N LETTER LIST. List of letters remaining in the Post Office at DU Ion.
