In a recent interview with a Hus- w bandman reporter, T. C. Power is. T quoted as saying regarding the Plul led-Angus breed of cattle: m The Polled-Angnu are all that has ri been claimed for then, and when in crossed upon the range cattle of ,Ion tana, I think the result will be far more satisfactorv than anyv other breed that has yet been introduced. tl Expressive. i The following notice appears in the l Deer Lodge New Northwest, and fr while not being poetical, nevertheless is is expressive and forcible: NOTICE.

The Argus and Stockigrowers Jour nal have been discussing the merits , and demerits of Montana's agricultur al resources and possibilities, and for C a clincher, the Argus brings the fol lowing to the Journal editor's notice: Sandy Cunningham brought nine potatoes to town last week that weigh ed twenty-five pounds: the largest u weighing 3.lbs. They were grownm on Valentive's ranch, just below tovn.a Six of these potatoes would m::ke a Sh meal for the editor of the Stockgrow- i ers Journal. ru Gave Up the Ghost. The Anaconda Weekly lIeviw has succumbed to the enevitale. and: the! editor writes its epitaph thusly: "In Memorian. -- The A aeouda Weekly Gazette is numbered among to the things that were.

Manager of The Gazette is likely to have plenty mi of company in that haven of rest al where defunct Montana newspapers oil go, before the third chinook puts in an ofl appearance next winter. ar New Military Order. The Secretary of War has issued in the following general order which sp will henceforth be an additional reg- si ulation: ve "In time of peace details of not less than one officer and three enlisted th men will be kept constantly under in- th struction and practice of military sig- no naIling at each post in the United da States, until the officers and all the men who have sufficient intelligence ap are proficient in the code of signal- su ling by flag, torch, and heliograph and homeographic code with disk. su Post commanders will detail an act ing signal officer at each host to give the necessary instructions and super- ea vise the field practice. Monthly re- di: ports of instructions and practice will be be rendered to the chief signal officer through department commanders." " The Special Session. ye There is more or less newspaper talk of a special session of the Legis lature being called by Gov. Hauser. it' It is improbable that such will be the r' case, as the Governor would have to a have the approval of the President, and also get an appropriation before- P hand, before he could call an extra session, and, as there is nothing of such an urgent nature as to require T the deliberation of that august body, re there is not much likelihood of the in- at terests of Montana being again jeop- to ardized by their assembling. In fact, bE the people of the Territory don't fo want them to convene again. They tl made such ludicrous asses of them- ti, selves last winter, that evey man that er voted for any one of them has been w ashamed to acknowledge the fact K since. cE THE C. P.

The Governor says there has been much agitation on the subject of s forcing the Chinese residents to leave the country, particularly in the coun ties bordering on Puget Sound. Sev- hi eral meetings have been held, at th I which were present delegates of the l1 Knights of Labor, and violent in- C cendiary speeches were made. The ed principal point for these meetings has been at Seattle, and there has al a so been a great deal of agitation at r Tacmoia. Thus far there has been no outbreak, although serious trioub'e 1 has been threatened. The persons sti t accused of kiiljng the Chin.ese hop a1 t pickers near leattle have been arrest- su , ed. and one is now in jail under in- St dictlet for murder in the second co deg'ree. St:rong efeorts have been of 11 mde-' to intimidate the Chine:se at the J'ra::i!ini and New Castle mines. a' and ilny Chinese are now leaving. Ir SThies~ plac'es arc now quiet, but the ar _ coal Cetloml)aies are anxious in regard It to the .s.'e:ty of their p1'prty. The TI SChlinse consul at San irani:-ico has er _ been irfi'o',med of the arrest of the , persons accuseCf of murdering the s Chinese. el Tie CGoverinor :ays it has been his ar desire to m'iltain order without the th em'ployment of troops, and a strong to or-'ga:ization of the better class of cit- sa izens has arrayed itself under the law w r for the I reservation of peace.

The Miles (City Stck Journal soml e time ago tale a remark through its cohluoins against the agricultural re s;olrees of Montaitna,.l got a soullnd thumning for it from nearly every paper in the territory. The argn r. !inllts i'o an COil were enlertaiinllg. if not logieal. and to anseer every and " all the attacks made upo!)n it. the SJournal would have been comipeelled to use all of its availalle spacte in several i'ssues:; so in the current num I her it makes a general )in'd-up of the papers and after branding them, turns them together in one bunch, euts 01 out a few and gins th(em up, then t i turns them back in the herd again s and proceeds to make them all feel Smiserable and ashamed of themselves. SIn the last act, just. before the cur tain falls, he turns them out on the i t bleak. chilly range, with the caustic remark that hereafter they must rns tle as he will pay ino attention to their f bellowing and bawling. e wo ould like to shoot the Journal 11 editor with a 4th "spud" which is on e our table, raised without irrigation. ` v1 It won1d probably change his views in reir l to Montana's agricultural 1 osspi ii1ies: at least he would have ol to -'Jaenowledlge that Montana soil Swas adapted to the production of in it ::n umoth "murrphies." Imrprovmrent in Business. Evideuices of a bettcr condition of affairs in trade throughout the coil try continue to multiply. The trafftlic of the leading railways-- always an ,:'cel.lent barometer of business - shows steady inmprovement. and on many lines every wheel is int uiotion. A large number of interior merchants, only recently in this city buying goods, have returned home and or ders to replenish stocks are already coming, which plainly indicates that internal trade is increasing in volume. In one section the cotton crop promi ses to be the largest on record, and in another the same can be said of the corn crop. These are the two most important products of the country, and with such an abundant yield it is not surprising that confidence as to the future is expressed throughout merchantile circles. In certain branches of industry which have long been depressed improvement is inak ing progress, noticeably in the coal trade and in the manufacture of steel rails. Wall street has caught the in fection, and while special causes have to a certain extent stimulated the buoyancy and activity the general re vival of business has undoubtedly had much to do with the advance that has taken place.--New York World. Choteau County's Assessrment The assessment roil of Choteaun county will foot up $3,700,000 this year; an increase of $700,030 over that of last year. This is highly satisfac tory, when it is taken into considera tion that property has depreciated in value considerably throughout the territory during the past year--and none more than Choteau county prop ty, owing to a peculiar combination of causes-and then again, the assessor is now a salaried officer, instead of receiving a per cent. as his compensa tion. This is not written with the purpose of casting any reflections up on the honorable gentlemen who act as assessors in Montana, but it is fair to presume that an assessor working for a commission would be more vig ilant and rustle around more ener getically after assessable property, than he would while working for a niggardly salary. If there is any oc casion to call together the remains of last winter's legislative fiasco, let it be for the purpose of repealing the salary bill. Special Agent Appointed. George R. Milburn of Miles City, has been appointed Special Agent of t the Interior Department, to make al lotments of land in severalty to the Crow Indians, under the act approv Sed of April 11, 1882 s WASHINiTON LETTER. tt [From our Regular Correspondent.] 0 W1smHNGTON, Oct. 16, 1835. e As the touch of frost clothes the Is streets and parks of Washington in p autumnal hues, the city begins to as t- same a livelier and gayer appearance. 1- Stylish equipages, with their liveried d coachman and footman. a sight not n often seen during the summer months, it now pass frequently up and down the ,. avenues. The store windows are bright with the display of fall goods, 0 and the crowd on the pavements of A Pennsylvania avenue daily increases. The hotel and boarding house keep I ers. and restauranters, as well as those to who have reception costumes and to swallow tail suits to hire, are making elaborate preparations for the season; is and members of Congress throughout to the country with their female en g tourage bIegin to pack their grip t sacks and Saratoga trunks for their w winter's sojourn at the Capital. I Few people realize what a worth n less specimen of genus homo the av it erage Congressman is. Not every Smem!ber of Congr, ss is as truly good a ,ni::1 tl:hat ,a..on of eloquence :nd ,e .,evli who ireprs:nts the ' ret .r',a ,i .ctf'. The oth r kind is ro:e wh', h:vin:, hy dint o tflattering si o"c'hlt-, deOlusivo loro liies, and reidily spnt mlo 'y. lon elected to fill i plue in the .eg slature, his slip 1e":' u'I , eo,twlttin"g i(ltmem"ory ea t ily forget- nl' lh, promises on which he hts cli~:,,ed to his post. honorable in itself, aut di-bonored while in his poses ,,,on. Nar.issus-like, he is lost in ailuraittion of his own inmae, and J rhps ourgt'ts the pu'rl.oe fuor which ther was helc'teJ, and which may have i ,eon to vie ag1 inst an increased tar iii on wool. cr to urge an appropria tit, ftr imp'oving the North Fork of Little ii - ddy Run. So, dur:ng .hit of winter -ession, hie spends the greater part of his time in the parlors and dining saloons of hotels and at vari ous places of amusement and interest. During the few hours daily that lie is el etxpected to be in the House or Sen ate, he lounges in an easy chair or on ra sofa, slmoking, reading the newspa pers, gossipping with female lobby ic ists in the waiting rooms, and flirting with gallery goddesses. He pays lit tle attention to the debates that are about matters outside the area of his al narrow district; and can always be relied upon to vote for an adjourn mont. nfl i W1hen two years have almost claps ed, and he realizes that his term of oftice is about to expire, he rouses himself from his lethargy, and dislik ing to relinquish his role in the great drama of history, he gets one of the many "literary fellows" who are al ways hanging around, to write him a f speech, which he reads to empty chairs in Congress, and sends several - hundred copies of the Congressional 1 Record in which it is printed, to his con:;tituents. And when the end of his term conimes, his exit from public life reminds one not of a faliling star, Sut rather resembles a dropping stick. This is not an exaggerated type of B statesmanship in Washington. There t are so many like him that he is not conspicuous for indolence or stupidi - ty. The idea that the mission of a leadership is past is a mistake. There 0 are a few prominent men on either t side who birect legislation, and the T rest are but followers. Although the - S vote of the dullest member counts as o much as that of Daniel Webster, he t gets his cue from his chief and is able a to vote without disgrace to himself or disaster to his country. But it is not strange that legislation l lags and that bills are sent forth half made up, when so many of the peo pie's agents are unqualified by mind, v 0 education, or aspiration for the work c of legislation. Much has been said and written re d cently about the reform of Civil Ser- - s vice. A radical reform in the legisla tive service is most urgent. If Mr. Leatherlung and Mr. Set-'Ein-Up n were compelled to pass a competive s examination they would never attain their places in the Senate or House. Hunting Winter Quarters.
