WORK OF GREAT IMPORTANCE.
Much Preliminary Work to Be Done Before Congress
Will Act in the Matter of Making Neces

Editor SearcLhight:
At the requtet of numnerous citizens I
will give a brief report of the action of the
Rivers and Ifarours Convention which
convened at the nations Capitol Dec 9th.
zgo8.
The delegation present. some 320o.
met at to:jo a. mn. at the new Williatd
hotel on the toth floor which has a capacity
of seating 5,uoo people. The hall was
elaborately decorated with flags and maps.
etc. All but two states were represented
in the great assemblage, and later events
proved it to be one of the most enthusi
astic gatherings ever hell in the city of
Washington. l). C.
After the l'resident of the coaventain
had called the meeting to order and gave
an ozuine of toe object of tie mevitng,
prayer was offered, and thtin Vtce Presi

who asotalked very elofuet.ly about the
propeisef sche ne;: and with markez. energy
espoutsed tte employment of American
labor.
lfon. J tseph Cannon, speaker of the
House on uretenatives wis then called
upon an l tie very ea rne-stly urged the
undert;ktfag, but gave the convention to

somethtny definite to work on: that the
schemte hed old fi smltce .il rivers asti knr.
bors and water course. which would tend
to benefit the traffic of the nation. lHe be'
lieved in making it an issue in the next
canmpaign, and that any nominee for a seat
in Congress who was nut favorable to the
improvement of the waterways of the
country, shoeld be defeated.
Hon. Champ Clark of Missouri was the
next congressman called upon. He stated
that for a3 years he has been in favor of
the improvement of the waterways, that he
knew what it wsuld mean for the people:
and he emphasized the fact that any pro
posed 'project that ignored the improve
meet of the Missouri river would not go.
Prominent men from Canada and South
America were present and spoke favorably
for a feasible plan to uring about the mat
ter. Andrew Carnagie was present and
expressed himself in favor of the scheme.
After reviewing the dascussions of the
various speakes, the sint and sub
stance of the whole matter resolved itself
into this: We, as A nation, must work for
accomplishment of the proposed project.
We most empluy the best and most como
petent engineer in the land to take charge
of the prehiminary work Hie must have
competent assistants to help him.
The preliminary work wilt consist of sur

of probable cost of each and every river,
harbor, canal and waterc nurse in the
country. Topographic surveys maps aid
charts will be required, all of which will

ing that lion. F. E. Stranahan of Fort
Bienton was the logical person, by reason
of his being at the head of navigaton of
the Missouri river, and for other reasons.
I considered it a pleasure - in having him
named as Montana's Vice Presiacnt of
the Rivers and Harbor, Convention lot
the ensuing year. I feel confident that he
will be - credit to Montana and will give
a gi d account of himself and render excel

position to fill. When be sends an appeal
to the people of Montana to lend aid it,

right gooa will and --the money as welt.

The Pura Food Law.
Secretary Wilson says. "One of the ob
jects of the law is to inform the consumer
of the presence of certain harmful drug. in
medie." The law requires that the amount
of chloroform, opium, morphine, and
other habit formsng drugs be stated on
the label of each bottle. The manufactur.
ers of Chamberlain's Cough Remsly have
always claimed that their reamedy did not I
contain any of these drugs, and the truth
of this claim as now fully proven, as no
maention of them is made an the latal.
This remedy is not only one of the safest,
but one of the best in use for coughs and
