TO CLASSIFY LAND Assessor Marshall Appointed Chief Land Examiner by Board to Use N. P.'s Nethod. In pursuance of the plan decided upon some time ago to secure the classification of all lands as a basis for assessment, the county com missioners have appointed John S. Marshall, the present assessor, as chief land examiner, his duties to begin Jan. 1 next, when his term as assessor will expire. The meth od employed by the Northern Paei - fie in classifying its land has been adopted by the county, and the re ports of the examiner will become a permanent record, enabling the assessor to fix the value of the land for assessment purposes upon its physical characteristics and soil conditions, rather than to make a guess, as is done now.

' ! : Befittingly Celebrates Coming of Rail road-Editor Sutherlin Drives the Golden Spike. For more than thirty years the inhabitants of the city of White Sulphur Springs in Meagher County have looked and waited for the time when they might enjoy the plea sures of a railroad in their town. On Tuesday, November 15th, more than two thousand people gathered at White Sulphur Springs to wit ness "Bob" Sutherlin drive the golden spike, which connected the White Sulphur Springs and Yellow stone Park Ry., from White Sul phur Springs to Ringling, a station on the Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound Railway. No more will the people of Meagher County have the long tedious eighteen mile stage trip to reach their county seat. No more will the commercial traveler have to take the eighteen mile drive in order to sell merchandise to the thriving merchants of that place. No more will these thriving merch ants have to freight their goods over eighteen miles of mountain road. Now all these and many more who were too timid to take the trip will ride into the city on a modern built railway. It remained for John Ringling the millionaire circus man, to see the possibilities of White Sulpur Springs, both as a commercial cen ter and a health resort. Besides building and operating this twenty one miles of railroad, he is about to build a two hundred and fifty thou sand dollar hotel for the accommo dation of the health and pleasure seeking populace, who will go to the Springs. The people of White Sulphur Springs ai.d all those who in tin* future will visit that city, will long remember John Ringling and Tuesday, November 15th. With a master stroke of a section had "Bob" Sutherlin, native and pioneer of Meagher County, drove the golden spike that connected the last pair of rails. Mr. Sutherlin told the vast crowd of spectators, that the one dream of his life had at last been realized in seeing White Sulphur connected by rail to the outside world. In closing Mr. Sutherlin said, "And indeed this is a proud moment for me, friends, to think I among all you. friends of pioneer days, that I was chosen to drive the golden spike." Governor Edwin L. Norris made an eloquent address on the develop ment of the state of Montana and 'the Smith River Valley. Judge Cheadlc, the eminent Fergus County jurist told some very amusing stories of the days of the stage couch. A Turkey dinner was served to all visitors, and needless to say that the repast was enjoyed by everyone. The celebration closed with a hall in the auditoroium,which lasted un till the wee small hours of the morn ing. Here, young and old danced as they never danced before. In conclusion, let us join in the hearty congratulation of White Sul phur Springs on the opening of its first railroad, we say, first, for the day is not far off, when that thriv ing city will enjoy far better rail road facilities than some cities that now look with scorn t.t the county seat of Meagher County. Let us congratulate White Sutphur Springs on the suburb celebration and en tertainment that she so hospitably bestowed on her vistors and friends l a st Tuesday. Danils, the restaurateur, is pre senting his lady customers with an elegant and valuable Christy plate as a Christmas gift. Kindly call for one.
