Fine Condition of Stock. le
Never in the history of Montana, have in
cattle, sheep and horses entered upon the Vi
winter season in better condition than ol
now. The fall was exceptionally tfine, no fc
heavy storm having occurred during Oc- 1i
tober or November. At. this date, there it
is no snow on the ground, and no cold d'
weather or frost. Some fields have just al
been sown with spring wheat, and there sC
is nothing except the dry condition of the in
groundto prevent the sowing of wheat and ol
oats extensively. The outlook for Mon- et
tana in every respect is bright, except, ti
perhaps, the silver mining interests, which sc
of would suffer if the policy of the national
is administration should be carried out. It
e is certain that our Territory will grow
d very rapidly in population and wealth
during the next few years.

a him out of the wagon, and the horses
four in number-becoming frightened,

' having no way of stopping the horses, as

Serious Offense.
tMention is made in another column of t
the arrest of James Arnoux, one of the
commissioners of this county. The dis
trict attorney gives the herald the fol- ,
lowing concerning the matter: "The I
charge of forgery is based on the raising I
r of milage certificates. Mr. Arnoux and
wife were subpoenaed as witnesses in a
case before one of the lower courts of
Benton. Their home is twenty miles from
Benton, but at the time they were subpoe-.
nae(l in this case they were both in town,
and consequently entitled to no milage, or
only thie nominal amount in such instanc
es. Mr. Arnoux claimed milage for forty I
t miles, but the probate judge woulnid not
allow it, and made out the certificates for 1
one mile. When the certificates came
1l before the conmnisaioners for auditing,
1Mr. Arnoux raised his and his wife's cer
tificates by altering the figures romn one
to 36 or 40--the exact amount is not
known-passed them as correct, and was
paid the money.
That Extra Bounty.
In, regard to the extra bounty given by
the stockmen of the Chestnut round-up li
for each wolf and cavote hide, the Hlus- S(
bandman wants to know what protection n
the members of the association have fi
against the implortation of hides from the tl
Saskatchewan or Yellowstone regions
and claiming a bounty from them. This
matter, we understand, was considered by 81
the members, but no satisfactory solution n
of the problem arrived at. They are sl
aware that they will be imposed upon to si
some extent, but they propose to watch t
the matter as close as possible, and any o:
party that endeavors to get a Baskatche
wan or Yellowstone wolf hide punchedl t
in order to get the extra bounty, is taking .
desperate chances on escaping without ih
getting his own hide punched so full of ct
holes that it wouldn't hold turnips. How- m
ever, the members are inclined to take a ai
liberal view of the matter and expect to to
pay bounty on many a hide which camne
from other than their range. p
A French -Canadian named Jacques tr
Braun, serving in the capacity of porter at
in aprominentjhlusiness house in Larimer,
Wyo., makes a startling statement to the sa
effect that Louis Riel was an illegitimate
son of Sir John Macdonald, premier of st
Canada. Braun claims to have held a
commission as captain under the rebel at
leader and to have been very intimate of
with him. lie says Riel divulged the at
secret of his parentage to him, exhibiting th
undisputable evldence in proof of his
statement, that Riel asserted that Sir in
John gave him warning to escape arrest
on the occasion of his first treasonable lt
acts years ago, and furnished him with th
funds during his subsequent residence in in
Montana. He says he made his escape in
just previous to the capture of Hiel andth
since h1as been drifting south. lie points
to the dilatory policy of the Canadian th
government regarding the execution of
Riel and the abrupt departure of Sir John th
immediately afterward as circumstial
evidence in support of his tale.
A Reminescense. th
A correspondent of the Billings Gazette
under the caption, "Reminescense of a o
Moss Back," has the following to say of ga
Ft. Shaw and the Sun river valley, which t
will bear repeating: "Fort Shaw is situ- b3
ated upon the south bank of Sun river gi
and is-One of the most important umilita-l
ry posts in the Territory. It is finely and
tastefully built, and has been rendered at
very attractive by shade trees, ornament- cc
al shrubbery and parterres of flowers, for at
the supply of which irrigating ditches l
leading from the river have been brought e
into all parts of the grounds. Sun river
valley is one of the famous stock regions
of Montana, and immense herds have
found a lavish subsistence upon the rich
herbage of its meadows and uplands, but
it has long since been exhausted. Here
dwelt some of the leading stock-kings, ci
about 50,000 head being in the hands of at
some half dozen owners, the herds rang- a
ing over an immense district on both sides bi
of the Missouri. Leaving Fort Shaw we of
enter the broken region which indicates w
the near proximity of the mountains and pt
some of the grandest scenery of which 3(
ii Montana oan boast lies on the road to
It Helena. Near Fort Shaw is the Square
w Butte, called by Lewis and Clarke "For
th tification Butte," a huge mass of sand
stone jutting up almost perpendicular
from the level of the valley and covered
on top by a broad grassy table land, con.

- The outlook for the sheep industry of
*st Montana was never better than at present.
n- Being closely allied to the woolen indus
try of the country, it has just passed
ta through a period of great depression.
Is When financial distress visits our country
er the manufacturer of woolen goods is
' among the first to feel its effects. The
er consumption of wool becomes less and
d1 less every day through the period of con
a; traction, until a majority of the mills of
y, the country either stop altogether or are
run on greatly reduced time. As a result
wool steadily declines until the grower
et seeing his profits decreasing from year to
year, decides to abandon the business.
l But at such times, fortunately for the
th great pastoral sheep interest of the far
ie West, there are few buyers, and only the
k- wether portions of our flocks can be
as shipped to Eastern markets. -Not so,
however, with the sheep owners of the
_ East, who have large markets for mutton.
almost at their doors. For there, when
n wool reaches a point below which there is
as little or no profit, thousands of small
d. flocks are shipped to market in a body
ewes, wethers and lambs, and are sold for
e whatever price the market will afford.
n In this way, during the hard times, vast
numbers of sheep are slaughtered more
d than in prosperous times. After the
i_ losses of two or three years, and whgn a
revival of the industries of the country
takes place, a sudden and rapid advance
in wool sets in, and a prosperous era for
f the sheep business is assured.
e The country has just passed through
s- such a period as I have refered to. The
1- woolen mills are all running, and wool
e0 has advanced about 25 per cent. since Ju
ly, with every prospect that it will ad
l vance still more the coming year. ;Noth
a ing is likely to prevent good prices for
if wool and prosperity for the sheep inter
a est, but a recurrence of general hard
e- times throughout the country. Wool
a, growers in Montana have much to en
)r courage them besides the bright business
c- outlook of the country. The past year
y has added so much to the reputation of
tt Montana wool, that it stands today, all
ir things considered, unequalled among
e American grown wools. Nor is its supe
riority fully acknowledged yet. Where
r- can you find uuwashed wool so clean and
Ic so free from burrs and dirt as our wool?
St And more than all, where can you find
is wool in the United States, so soft, so)
sound and with such splen(lid working
qualities? And this is not all. I will
guarantee that any first-class manufactur
e or or judge of wool will say after handl
P ing three thousand fleeces from some of
s- some of our well-bred flocks, that lie has -
1 never seen an equal ilnumber of fleeces
e from any other flock, except it be in Aus
e tralia or New Zealand, that would not
Svield more low or inferior wool.
it is not uncommon to hear some of our
sheep owners express regret that they didl I
not embark in cattle raising instead of A
sheep raising. Had they done so five or S,
six years ago, their profit would doubtless T
have been greater, as the advance in price
of range cattle has been from 100 to 200
per cent. But looking to the probabrlefu- o
ture of these two branc<hes of business, it
cannot resist the conclusion that the cheep
interest promises better results. The
complaint that sheep raising requires too
rmuich work will be heard in Montana less I
and less every year as men come here
to engage in the business, expecting to
work and are willing to work. The su
perior quality of the wool grown here and
the great advantages which this Territory B
oilers for sheep raising, are sure to at- 0
tract the attention of capitalists, aud large
amounts of money will be invested in -
ranches and permanent improvements the
same as has been done in other countries
possessing advantages for pastoral
sheep husbandry. It is doubtful if there j
is any other place in theivorld where the to
sheep busindss, by a proper expenditure hr
of money, can be carried on more safely, co
and with more profitable results than in HE
this Territory. 21
Hitherto nearly all who have engaged
in the sheep businss in Montana were Ba:
poor menl when they commenced. To- k
(lay, however, with but few exceptions,
these men who have continued atthe bus
iness have made money rapidly, and are
in a situation to reap great profits from
their flocks in the future. Much money
will undoubtedly be spent hereafter in \
the improvement of our sheep. The time tic
in my Opinion, is not far distant, when st
the Montana merino sheep, the outgrowth IH
of our splendid climate and rich grasses, NI
will stand foremost among the families of si
the merino race.
Those engaged in the breeding of thor- Ar
oughbred sheep in Montana, already note a
great improvement over the parent flocks J
that were shipped from Vermont. Year
by year the Montana merino sheep will
grow in strength and hardiness. Being of
all animals the most certain to adapt
themselves to new conditions of climate 1
and food, we can be assured that they will
continue to improve here in constitution th
and wool-producing qualities, until they Mo
become a distinct family of the fine-wool- N,
ed race, certainly unsurpassed, and I be- °
lieve unequalled in the world. co
