Twenty Years Ago. The territory of Montana will be S'twenty years old May 24, 1884. While Sto be a territory now may seem not a | very exalted position, or its annivor - sary entitled to special observance, its 0 establishment was much desired, and i the devoutly wished for consumation was really the foundation for the tenm - ple of Statehood. Familiarity with its conditions has wearied us with a territorial government, but when it k was granted to the pioneers of Mon tana they hailed it as an inestimable boon. It is such yet as compared . with what would be were we still con A.tinueda part oIdahoor .Wahington. We believe the anniversary has never been formally celebrated. We are lacking in Territorial pride, or at least in the demonstration of it. Now I some day, and we hope soon, there I will be Pioneers' assooiation formed in Montana-it ought to have been years ago. These pioneers will doubt- . less at least include all who arrived prior to May 24, 1864. Now why .hauldn't theo anniversry of that day which marked the first achievement of the political aspirations of those pi oneers, be adopted as their anniversary day? It ia seasonable for reunions, and all things appropriate. Why don't the pioneers organize? Who is the pioneer that will give the word and start that which will be the largest and most enjoyable civic association c of MontananT-Now Northwest. c The following from the Husband- a man is applicable to our valley: 3 The progress which is being made by the husbandmen' of Montana is a matter of surprise to everyone who a has resided here any length of time. n A few years ago every home was sur- n rounded by unclaimed land. Every eC farmer had plenty of range on which to pasture his farm stock right in front of his door yard, and the I thought never occunrred to them that s) such a convenient state of affairs was a destined to come to an end. Land a then was not worth the improvements a upon it to say nothing of adding the government price. But in looking t over our principal valleys today we o find them pretty much all fenced. lt The farmoe who selected what he 8 supposed to be the choicolocation ton years ago, finds himself surrounded tI by farms and his stock have'to travel ec for miles in order to reach the open 9, range. But this is not the end. Pro- b gress will continue. The valley lands are now all fenced and so are all the principal creek bottoms and still the work gees on. The high plateaus rc must come under the yoke next, and ten years from now will find our val- a leys from foot hills to foot hills one continuous net-work of fences. This i' is the inevitable decree of civilization i and however inconvenient such na state of affairs may prove to the Mbon- u: tanian Who is accostomed to plenty of tr elbow room, he will be forced to make the best out of the new order ao of things. P The Messrs. Ames', father and son of Massachusetts, and Tompson, of Olean, New York, have purchased of the Northern Pacific all of the odd sections in a whole township on what is known as the Mendendale range in Montana. There are 29,040 acres in the township and they have secured halt by purchase. A part of the bal ance they have acquired by entry un the various land laws. The object of this vast acquisition of property is to secure a sheep range. A large badd will be shipped to the range this sea son. The land is located on the Bad Route creek, on the north side of the Yellowstone some sixteen miles above Glendive, has tine water front and choice hay ground. Bad Route creek rises in the Sheep mountains and lows into the Yellowstone, and will always furnish a good supply of splen did water, It is understood the price for this land was a little over $2 per acre.--Enterprise. The agreement between British Columbia and the Dominion has been ratified. The Dominion Wives to the railway company, chartered by the British Columbia legislature $750,000 for building a railway from Esqui malt to Nanaimo, the company to rc eive a grant of land of twenty miles on b.~eh side of the road. The Do minion b'qo purchases the Esquimalt Dry Dock for' 4250,000 and such sums as have been spe~nt on it by British Columbia up to date. All the mate rial required for the road, or the rail s way, is to be admitted free cf duty. In considoration of all this, Biztish Columbia coedes to the Dominion three and a half million acres of land in the Peace river country. It is often easier to make a great a sacrifice than a little one, to right some great wrong, than to prevent a number of small ones. It is easier to e do battle for a great idea than to give e up a prejudice, to establish a man's right citizenship, than to respect in silence his right to dress as he pleases love who he pleases, hate who he pleases, and go whore he pleases, Yet it is the little things of life that contribute most largely to its fret and - worry or to its peace and gladness. r We should over remember that no ). right is too small to be respected, no lo kindness too trifling to be rendered, wr and no part of life too small not to be worth our conidedratiou.

Our Northern neighbours are going to try the wool-growing business over there. Several of the largest land-holders there are now making arrangments to purchase large bands in this territory, this sunmmer. Our sheepmon may now expect a boom in their business, equal to the one inaug orated in the cattle business three years ago--and which has lasted over since---by the advent of the British buyer. Shonkin Round-Up. At the regular meeting of the Slhoukin round-up, held April 20th, It was agreed that the Czaptain in charge of the round up, should have the power of dischatrging any man who neglected his duty or refus. ed to obey the orders of the boss, whether he be a hired unan or cattle owner, and hire another man in his stead.
