Interesting sidelights on men and things political Washington, D. ('., April 28th, 1914— There is a rift in the war clouds which have been-hanging deep and dark over the land for the past ten days and immense relief is apparent especially about the Wh>te House and the state department. Only the jingoes are un happy aud although the atmosphere has eleared wonderfully v they are clinging to the fervent hope that Huerta may go on another spree and commit some act which will make it necessary for us to rush our troops into the city of Mexico. Tf I am any judge of public sentiment, the people of this nation do not want to engage in war with Mexico. They can see no profit and little honor in such an adventure. They stand ready, if .stern necessity dictates, to take charge of the affairs of the stricken republic in the south, bring order out of chaos which has reigned there for four years past and aid in the. establishment of a stähle and permanent government but no one who has studied the situation and given thought to the probable eventualities has the slightest enthus iasm for such an undertaking. It will be a long and arduous task, a blood spilling, heart breaking task, a thank less and odious task. F O R S ALE One black imported and registered Percheron Stallion age 16 years, weight 1850 pounds* This Stallion acts and looks like a four year old, and will be good for 8 years service yet. All of his get looks like him, as he throws colts (from any kind of mares) that show his blood predominant. This Stallion has been tested for Dourine, and has a certificate for public service from the state of Montana. He has two crosses from Voltauer and Brilliant close up his breeding. This Stal lion can be seen at the barn of T. F. Hagan, four miles southwest from Glendive. For particulars inquire of G E.

The president, of course, doesn't want war and in this he is heartily supported by Secretary Bryan and other members of the cabinet. They have counted the cost of such a eon diet and will stop at nothing, save our national honor, to avoid the loss of life and treasure which would be entailed by the conquest of our unhappy neigh bor. In his Mobile speech, delivered several months ago, the president stat ed suseinetly that we do not want an other foot of territory on this conti nent or elsewhere. In this he was sin cere but there are a goodly number of men right here in congress who do not altogether agree with him. I have found a surprising number of my friends in the house who privately ad mit that if our flag ever goes up over the capital of Mexico, they hope that it may never come down for at least two or three hundred miles below the Rio Grande. They recall that Texas was once a part of the Mexican empire but that it is now one of the most populous and prosperous, as well as the largest, of our sisterhood of states. re in is our life an sin of not my ad the They contend that history would be re peated and that if we should, by any fortune, good or ill, decide to acquire two or three of the largest states of northern Mexico, they would quickly fill up with our own people and there by become Americanized in an incred ibly short period of time. There are none who are willing publictly to pro claim such a program at this time but if untoward events should drive us to the disagreeable task of making a sec ond conquest ( of Mexico, X venture the prediction that our army would not be in that country twelve months before some member of congress would be openly advocating the annexation of at least a substantial portion of that coun try. No one dreamed that, when we undertook to drive the Spaniards from the western world, we would come into any additional territory but that very thing came to pass nevertheless. But while the situation has assumed a more pacific appearance within the last three or four days there remains a feeling of uneasiness in official circles and preparations for any possible con tingency are being perfected bv the administration.Huerta has shown him self to be such an utterly unreliable specimen that little credance is placed in his acceptance of the offers of med iation. The most encouraging factor is the news from Mexico that the peo ple of the capital of that country are turning against the dictator and threat pniug to drive him out. With Huerta I out of the way it is altogether possible j that this countrv might be in a posi-1 tion to offer suggestions tor the set-| tlenient of the international difficulties I which have beset that country for sev-m eral years and paeifleally aid in the re storation of some semblance ol order I there. It would, indeed, be a crowning I achievement and a sweeping vindica- 1 tion of his policy of watchful waiting if President Wilson could be the means of bringing about this happy state of affairs. The Mexican situation has naturally been the sole topic of interest in con gressional circles and as a result other legislative matters have been kept in the back ground but the partial sub sidence of hostilities at Vera Cruz has enabled congress to get back to earth, as it were, and renew the consideration of more prosaic business. The house is at present struggling with the big navy appropriation bill and, as usual, it has developed into a bitter contest between the "big navy" men and the "little navy" men. The big navy men would like to have four battleships but will be contented with two. The little navy men would like to have no battle ships at all but are willing to compro mise with one. The bill provides for ! I the construction of two new super-sup-1 er-dreadnaughts aod ,t w '^ * I and it [go through in that shape I war flurry has immensely strengthened I the hands of the big navy men but the I little navy men are making a valiant I struggle nevertheless. In the senate, I chief interest still centers about the I Panama canal tolls bill. The committee ( on interoceanic canals has about con cluded its hearings on that subject and ! it is expected to report the measure out in some shape within the next few days. It is generally understood that the de bate on the bill in the senate proper will consume three or four weeks. The general impression is that it will pass | the senate although there is a possibil ity that it will be amended in some particulars. No one ever presumes to predict when the present session of congress will end. All are pretty generally agreed that we shall spend another hot sommer right . here on the shore of the Potomac. If I any effort is made to eonelude the I program which has been mapped out at I the beginning of the session last De- } «ember, it ii a certainty that Aagnetl^ will «till find ns at the task. Ths anti trust bills have not yet been whipped into satisfactory shape and there are | I several big conservation measures which have been reported out of the house committee on publie lande and ! which the administration hopes to have passed at tins session. Chief among these are the seal, oil, gas, and phoe [ pate land leasing bill and the Ferguson 640-acre homestead bin. This first The named is probably the more important ( laid be since it provides for the inauguration of a new policy for the -handling of the government's zninecal bearing land*. The Ferguson biH has substantial backing and stands a good chance of getting through if ths session lists long enough. TOM STOUT.

Every mail that comes to the desk of Frank Hazelbaker, secretary of the Montana commission, brings hundreds of requests for these unique coins. There will probably be a large number of loyal Montanans that will not know where to secure the "Mon tana Dollar" and not be close enough to some supply point that they will be able to purchase the coins person ally. If these interested persons will write to Mr. Hazelbaker at Dillon and enclose $1.00 the coins will be mailed to them direct from his office.

The rough grading was done to Wat ford last fall but the steel was only ( laid to Amegard. The grading will be completed and the steel laid into Watford during May. Watford will remain the terminal of the Great Northern for some time as the pro posed survey between Watford and New Rockford has been abandoned and the Missouri will be crossed at some point further south. Riley and Guthrie have charge of the grading work between Amegard and Watford. That town is expected to be a promin ent shipping point and there is a rush for lot sales.
