The building of the Great Nor thern road to the northern coal fields by way of Jennings is now an assured fact, says th Libby News. Engineers are now engaged in sur veying a route and inside of six weeks the graders will be at work. The branch will be built with all possible speed. The selection of this route also means the complete abandonment of the "cut-off" which has been talked of so much, and Lib by will continue to be the principal city of the western part of the coun ty. The building of the new road will also open up a large territory of undeveloped country, up the river and around Tobacco Plains, and much of the trade that now goes to Kalispell can be diverted to Libby if the local merchants only make a bid for it. While it may be a lit tle prematura to pip mntfpr the rapid settlemen and development of this section may lead to the di vision of the county two years hence, and in that event Libby will be the county seat. The resources are such that the population will be vastly increased In two years, and it is only a question of time until the county is divided. The news of the proposed building of tue road from Jennings to Tobào co and thence on to the Northern coal fields, was first given publicity through the columns of this paper. It can also be stated that this paper knew of it for some time, but was not at liberty to uivulge the infor mation. As stated, work on the road will begin in a short time. An engineer rode over the route last week and made mental memoranda of the topography of the country. Now a full corps of engineers are surveying the route and Just as soon as they have made definite locations of the line another corps of engin eers will begin cross-sectioning Contracts will then be let and inside ot a month dirt will begin to fly at a great rate. Jennings will be a boom town this summer, but the per manent prosperity will be at Libby. The effects will be felt in a short time, and as soon as the road reaches Tobacco all of the trade of that ter ritory will naturally be diverted to Libby. This is going to be this sum mer, the livliest town in Montana and permanent, substantial and rapid growth is assured from this time on.

"The patients at the smallpox hospital get the very best of treat ment, it is kept clean, and the food is the best to be had. "Miose people who have been exposed to the dis ease need not fear being sent there and persons who think they have the disease and attempt to dodge the physicians so that they cannot be sent there are certainly fools." Mr. Luscker was taken to the smallpox hospital from the Conrad house about five weeks ago and was discharged yesterday. His case was not a severe one and other than having the appearance of being flushed his face has no sign of the disease. His statement regarding the man agement is certainly complimentary to the county officiais, coming as it does from one who has been in a po sition to know what he is talking about.
