Possibly he was not intending to make an expansion speech when he addressed the Chatauqua assembly at Devil's Lake the other day, bu» that was what J. .1. Hill did by present ing figures on the growth of Orient al trade, and the possibilities of the future. Speaking of freight traffic he said: "Two yeais ago we started a few bales of cotton—and now past your doors every day, almost every train for the past six or eight months, has carried carload after carload of cotton. At the same time, while we have car ried probably 150,000 bales to the Pacific coast, 000,000 or 800,000 bales would have gone if it could have been carried by us from the Pa cific coast of this country to Asia, and so with grain. "It is only three years ago that the low rate of ocean transportation in duced a considerable movement of Pacific coast flour to the Orient. The rate was $2.50 a ton. The business grew so rapidly that the ships could not carry it, and the ships today de mand $5 and *0 a ton. Now there are not ships enough leaving the Pa cific coast to carry one bag of flour where ten offers. The flour that goes today to the Orient is not used for bread, but only for a few fancy cakes. The market there is without limit be cause of the number of mouths to feed. One half the world's popula tion lies between Balvadosa and the Straits settlements. In China and Japan lies one-third of the population of tile worîtl. We can supply the portion of China nearest the ocean for one or two hundred miles back cheap er than they can bring it from the in terior of their own country and feed their own people on the coast." AN ALL-WISE PROVIDENCE. Take a walk through a cemetery alone and you will pass the last rest ing place of the man who blew into the muzzle of a gun to see if it was loaded. A little further down the slope is the crank who tried to show how close he could pass in front of a moving train. In strolling about you see the modest monument of the hired girl who tried to start the fire with kerosene, and the grass cover ed knoll covers the boy who put a corncob under a mule's tail. The tall shaft over the man who blew out the gas casts a shadow over the boy who tried to jump on the mov ing train. Side by side the ethereal creature who always had her corsets laced to the last hole and the intel ligent idiot who rode a bicycle nine miles in ten minutes, sleep on un disturbed. At repose is the doctor who took a dose of his own medi cine. Th ere i with a top of a shoe box driven over his head, is the rich old man who married a young wife. Away over there repose the remains of the boy who fished on Sunday and the woman who kept strychnine in the cupboard with powders. The man who stood in front of a mowing machine to oil the knife is quiet now and rests besides tbe careless brake man who fed himself into a seventy ton engine; and in the corner of the fence in the Potter's field inay be seen the bleaching bones of the chump who tried to drink a beer glass full of whiskey at one draught. But if you have tears, prepare to shed them now. Here lies the body of Pro Bono Publico who always knew more about other people's bus iness than about his own, and could tell every editor in America how to run a newspaper. The old fool will be missed as much as any one in the above catalogue. And still people talk about the in finite wisdt.m of God's providence. In addition to the Leader's argu ment for Montana cigars, it should be noted that the finest cabbage leaves in the world for wrappers and fillers can be grown in Cascade county. \ THREE YEARS OF HISTORY. While it is generally acknowledg ed that the business situation in Mon tana, says the River Press, is much more satisfactory than it was three years ago, the extent of the improve ment will be better appreciated by comparing certain data bearing upon the subject. The comparison demon strates that the people of Montana have made remarkable progress dur ing the past three years, and are now enjoying a degree of prosperity that should be a source of pride to every patriotic citizen. Convincing testimony in this con nection is furnished by the amount of property returned for taxation by the people of Montana. In 1896, property to the value of $120,697, 847 was listed with the assessors, while this year the valuation promis es to exceed *140,000,000. A gain of some 20 million dollars in the short space of three years is a most excellent showing for a community of about 200,000 people. The residents of all parts of Mon tana have participated in the improv ed conditions of the past three years. In 1896 the livestock interests of the state had a most discouraging exper ience. The beef market ruled for the most part at from $8 to $3.50 for good Montana steers; mutton weth ers that netted $2 per head brougt what was then regarded as a good price, and 8 cent wool was an aver age quotation in Montana markets. When these figures are placed beside the market values of today, one real izes the difference between the busi ness conditions of three years ago and now. The products of Montana ranches also find a better market than was available in 1896, and the value of ranch property itself has appreciated to a remarkable degree. The demand for ranch property the past two or three yea >-3 has given a handsome value to locations that could not find a purchaser in 1896 at any price. In the mining industry, also, there has been a record of steady progress dur ing the past three years. Informa tion from the various camps is to the effect that more men are employed in Montana mines than at any former period of their development. THE MANTLE OF CHARITY. The Glasgow Gazette which is nursed and swaddled by a 2x4 in tellect apologizes for the existence of the Herai.d man by saying "The Lord works in a mysterious way his wonders to perform." It is doubt ful if the Lord should be accused of performing anything around the Ga zette office, but there is another dia bolical personage who will perform there if he ever strikes Glasgow. The fool killer is evidently taking a vacation. But we must beg pardon of our intelligent readers for having once more mentioned this rattled brain ed wise-acre, this freckle-faced, pud ding- headed ninny, this curse of in ferno who has come to blight and blast the society of Glasgow and to reduce the standard of intellectual journalism in Montana. We rather throw the mantle of charity over the pseudomorphous blatherskite allud ed to and hide a brother's glaring faults. A recent publication reaching this office is the work of A. K. Yerkes, editor of the Bozeman Chronicle, en titled, "Pieces for the Paper." It contains gleanings of the best writ ings of this versatile editor, philoso pher and poet. "Pieces for the Paper" is full of robust philosophy and rollicking fun based upon real istic and ludicrous situations in Mon tana life. It is a literary gem, a work of history, philosophy and humor, so happily admixed and compounded as to insure a streak of wholesome fat upon the ribs of its raptured readers. Send 25 cents to A. K. Yerkes, of the Bozeman Chronicle for a copy of this book. Each and every page out of the whole 150 is worth the price of admission. Every Montanan ought to have this work. Democratic papers are offering some beautiful apologies for the po sition of Senator-elect Clark on fi nance. The excuse for the apparent political blunder may be classed with the "didn't know it was load- : ed" variety. Will some one please come for ward with a sensible plan for the reception of the Montana volun teers?—Helena Independent. Let us first land the boys on American soil, assist them to their respective homes where they may receive the blessings and caresses of of fond parents, wives and friends; allow a period of repose to rest their wearied bobies; then if you care to celebrate their return, call the brave boys together at some central point and in conjunction with wine and song, feast them npon uncanned fatted calf from Montana ranges.— Lewistown Democrat. It is reasonable to presume that Governor Smith has succeeded in satisfying himself of the wisdom of his military appointments—and the office of governor is just like that of pound master in respect that he is not expected to satisfy everybody. HODGE PODGE. Mormon elders whipped and put on the run at Pineville, Ky. Will Chambers, a Nashville coon, lynched for criminal assault. Striking coal diggers at Exeter, Pa., have agreed to arbitrate. England sends 12,000 troops from India to S. Africa to fight Boers. Texas democrats pledge $75,000 for the next presidential campaign. Hail storms in North Dakota and Minnesota do $2,500,000 of damage to crops. A balloon crank named Reynolds at Corry, Pa., fell 3,000 feet and was killed. The Dreyfus case now going ori in Paris is developing some sensa tional news. Dr. J. It. Hatch of Ossipec, N. H., hung for the murder of his wife in Sept., 1897. Gen. Toral of Spain is acquitted of the charge of cowardice in sur rendering Santiago. Statistics show that last year there were 6,859 persons killed and 40, 822 injured in railway accidents. People in Ponce, Porto Rico, have nothing to eat but bananas and are asking for relief from an awful situ ation. Vice chairman Stone of the na tional democratic committee says there is no doubt as to Bryan's noin ination in 1900. The poor houses in forty-five Kansas counties are empty, and in thirty-seven counties there is not a case on the criminal docket. Stage coach loaded with passeng ers between Ester Park and Lyons, Colo., gets away from the driver on a mountain side and very few es cape death. Chas. Wilson a Lake Benton, Minn., farm hand, works two years for Walter Warren, and is shot by the latter in a dispute over wages due Wilson. Warren is jugged. "Australian Bill" Murphy and Patsy Wagner started into a 15 round boxing contest at Sioux city, but in the second round they turned the affair into a rough and tumble, and fought like dogs. Cops pulled the works. The Montana delegation to sit at the national trust convention at Chi cago is comprised as follows: Hon. Martin Maginnis, Ex-Gov. Jos. K. Toole, Helena; Hon. C'has. S.
