GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE.
PUCtL LHD ET THE Tribune Publishing Company. [rscoRPonarlD] WV. G. Conirad, one of the firm of I G. Baker & Co., of Fort Benton, and another "powerful ally" of the ~orth ern Pacific company. states that they will parallel the roads of the Montana Central, and if necessary, will build on top of them. This interesting piece of news is given as coming from vice-President Oaks, and is evidently enjoyed intensely by this "powerful ally." Would it not be well for Mr. Conrad to stop his railroad racket for I a moment, and consider the effect up- , on his interests at Fort Benton as well as the interests of all who live in I Northern Montana if the bulldozing bulletins which he is helping to put c forth, should produce their intended i effect---namely, to stop the railroad t building of the Montana Central Co. i Is it not clear that the result would be t no railroads into Northern Montana, c and no developement of its splendid v resources, for many years to c come? The well-known policy of I the Northern Pacific Co. would assert f itself and whould, as usual. continue ( to deliver and receive olr shipLments, s on teams, eith,.r at iHelena, or at points f in the Yellowstone valley. I repe'at. the efforts of ,Mr Conrad, as indicated I by his pnblishe-l letters, and despatch s es if carried to their legitimate result. v would stop all railroad building into t, Northern Montana."IIHe has declared v himself the ally of vice-President p Oaks, who only recently stated that if b the Montana Central Co. insist upon ti building their roads they will surely e rarallel them all: thus. plainly indicat- s ing that if the, Montana Central Co. u lay down their tools and quit the field the Northern Pacific will not extend a w branch into our country.- It is not at p all probable however, that the effo:rts p of Mr. Conrad or even his presence at tc the meeting of N. P. directors in New p York, to which lie refers, can make t. the slightest difference with the rail- ol road slate of Northern Montana. We be only allude to him to show that his ci policy is antagonistic, in every respect di to the Montana Central, and the splen- b; did results which will follow the con- et struction of its road into Northern tl: Montana. In this day: a::d :oz, of I1: 1 '. rl1. tions have establicihed for "bl ceding pCeople of the country through which they pass, it is truly refreshi'ng to find now and then an exception, and such is worthy of more than ordinary no tice; and-the following exception to the rule,will be read with interest by our people when it is understood that Mr. Hill is the principal owner of our townsite and magnificent water power and besides is one of th, heaviest backers gf the Montana Central rail road~enterprise. The article is taken from the Pioneer Press, and is a reply to a letter from J. M. Spicer of Will mar, Minnesota, in which a proposi tion is made to turn over to the]Mani toba, as a bonus for building its St. Cloud & Willmar branch, the $65,00() bonds voted by Kandiyohi county to aid a local company in building such -a road. President Hill writes: While the above bonus would be a a large consideration for our company in building the line, it has not been our policy at any time to burden the communities along our lines with ad ditional taxes for the purpose of so curing additional railroad facilities, and inasmuch as a large portion of your country lies within the limits of our land grant, with a considarable portion of these lan4s remaining un sold, I see no reason why we should make an exception of your country. If the people throughout the country will give us their moral support in procuring what right of way we re quire at fair and reasonable prices. we will build the road and have it completed this year, oe aerdition that the bonds voted for the $65,000 be re turned to the officers of the county and by them burned or destroyed. The people of your country will large ly have to support the road when it is built, and the additional burdens of the bonus would be a hardship to him. The Commercial Bulletin saya: The action of the German Reichstag in passing the bill fixing the duties on beet sugar at 1 mark 60 pfoni igs per 100 kilogrammes is regarded by the sugar interest here as an attempt on the part of Germany to cope with the French in the production and export of beet sugar. The new duties will not effect the market here. It is be lived the new duties will facilitate the export trade of Germany. "There is too much sugar in Europe for Europ ean consumption," said the principal of a Wall street sugar refining firm. "It is very natural that the beet-pro ducing countries should show an anx iety to get rid of their surplus pro duct, As for our market here we have an abundance of sugar anyhow. The bill passed by the German Reich stag will dot affect us either one way or the other." A Wyoming stock ppper notes with surprise the report that 100,000 cattle have been purchased in Texas to be driven to Montana, and says that Mon taua's ranges are overstocked already. The )att.r part of the statement is wide ofLt. mark, for although this territory' jontains about a million head of cattl-theore is ample room for sev eral times that pumber. Bring on your bovines. TILE MONTANA CENTRAL. Next to the Northern Pacific Rail road through Montana, no enterprise ha, ever be)n started in our territory that will compare in importance with ti. t projected work .of the Montana I Central railroad company. To Helena, the capital and commer - cial center of Montana, it will add y thousands of peopl!e and millions of a capital, while it will become, at once, d the conecting link between Northern g and Western Montana. The advent n of this company into .Montana with its y great capital and enterprise, is a ii guarantee for the speedy development C. of our magnificent resources. It r means that a new agency will soon be at work to settle up the rich valleys I and plains of Northern Montana. It n has in view the utilization of our coal g and iron and the reduction of our i t ores on a more extensive and economl I ical scale than is now known to Mon- c I tana. It has also in view the build ing up of a great industrial center at e the Falls of the _Missouri, which at no distant day will be the pride of the I whole people of this territory. The 0 commencement of work by Col. 1 f Broadwater and his associates of the M t ioutana Central is a guarantee that 1 eastern capitalists believe the re- 1 Ss,urces of Montana will warrant the Sfurther building of railroads and also points to the time whien, like MIinnes- s eta and Dakota, we shall have many skeparate and independent lines of rail vway. It is true that Northern Meon tana is thinly settled, but it will al I ways remain thinly settled with its l present railroad advantages. The F building of the Montana Central into i the heart of this rich country, will c change it, as if by magic, and it will soon become by by far the most pop ulous portion of the territory. e I The Northern Pacific Co. have al- r ways made a mistrke in ignoring this c part of Montana, or; believing that its lI present railroad 'facilities were equal t1 to its requirements... The same com- b pary are apparently making a mi.- t take now in attempting to keep out ] other railroad enterprises. It wouMld be botter by far for the Northern Pa- v cific Co. to accept the inevitable bail- d ding of railroads in this, country C by other companies, and give North- p crn Montana a direct eastern outlet through the Judith Basin to Billings. The building of another road izto ,.1 So thern' Montana par:':'I t' i niliI.. i n dare to excutel his threat to parailel the Rock Island I road across the state of Illinois. I h With but few exceptions, the goof- fi will of the people of Montana is with i ;he Montana Ceontral Co. as it always A will be, with any men or company tl whose effortstend so unmistakably to 13 the development of this-country. ý c TIE ALASKA MINES. A correspondlent sends the follow ing concerning the new gold country: The whole of Alaska territory is c more or less a gold field needing cap- a ital to develop it, quartz of a low grade, but in immense quantities be- o ing found on every hand. The Tread well mine on' Donglass island, it is an c example of this. This one of the j largest quartz mills in the United Stales, viz., 120 stampi, working night and day. and averaging over 50,00 t per month. There are rich diggins, , both placer and quartz, four miles from Juneau in the basin, but owing t] to its inaccessibility and the lack of water and capital invested to bring it in, they are not worked to one-tenth of their capacity. There are good diggins almost in the town on Gold i creek, but the same obstacles render i them valueless and idle. The Yukon 9 river excitement has broken out with b increased vigor. Hughes, the explor er, started two weeks ago for the new diggings, closely followed by at least q a dozen different parties of explorers and prospectors. Hughes is the man who returned to Joneau last fall with sixty-two ounces fine as the product d of eleven days work. From latest in formation the new find is located on Stewart river in the northwestern ter ritory. There are rumors of a large party of Montanians who have started d for it from Benton, Montana, but they b will never reach it that way. There is only one route, from Frisco to Port land, from Portland to Juneau to Chilcoot, thence by portage over the divide to the lakes. There they build flatboats and glide peacefully down r the chain of lakes to the river and the mines. Miners' wages here are $4 to p $5 per day. Carpenters have more work than they can do at $5 per day, a as over twenty new buildings are now going up and more are havingthe n< foundations laid. A new town has ni just been started on Douglas island, R directly opposite Juneau, keeping three small ferry-boats running. I as would advise no man to start here w without money, as although provis ions are cheap, yet it takes money to oufit and to pack said outfit. over the s divide, but a loan with a capital of S_ $200 can make the Yukon country cc with ease, and from all reports or and the indisputable fact of the gold being brought out fron there by Hughes and party it wilf4le is own fault if bhe don't make n< a profitibld ini'-stmeat, ce The Canadian Pacific. re It is reported that the Canadian sy Pacific Company has arranged Bar- d4 ing Brothers of London for the pur- g: e chase of the remaining $200,000,000 1 y of bonds, the proceeds of which are to h. h be applied to the paying of part of tl a the indebtedness of the company to in the Government, while the balance of h -897,G00,000 is to be liquidated by I transferring about 7,000,000 acres of ,f land belonging to the original grant of 25,000,000. This will practically- 1 a make a cash subsidy to the company t of $35,000,000 and a land subsidy of s 18,000,000 acres. 01 t W SHINGTON LETTER. of t b [From our Regular Corn .pondcnt.] bi s XWASmaIINGTOi D. C., April 1, 1836. t Three sick cabinet officers, and ie 1 three remarkable exhibitions of legis r lative amenities, one in the senate, is one in the house, and another in the committee room all on the same day, P; - argue something wrong in the atmos t phere of the capitol. do In the senate Messrs. Logan and Teller indulged in personalities as far re as the dignity of that body would al- al low them. Each said the other was no statesman, and made several simi lar remarks equally caustic. In the er house two members from Tenn. com pared each other to the occupmnts of prison cells and,to criminals; who had ov suffered death on the gallows. And down in the basement. of the capitol, I where the Telephone Investigation id Co:nmittee assembles :daily, a'distin guiished witness was informed by a fa venerable legislator that he was impil- A dent,and the witness (Col. Casey Young) reported by calling the Mass. congressman (Mr. Rianny) a "pettifog- ti ging lawyer." The sick Administrati4 is conval escent, with the exception of Secreta ry Manning. His condition still causes much apprehension. Hope for his recovery is only-based on the fact stc that he becomes no worse. There'has ay been no recurrence of the rupture of the same blood vessel, and the para- ki lysis has partly disappeared, but the SO' patient does1 not gain strength, his voice is husky, and he frequently dim dozes in the midst of a conversation. id! On awaking, he resumes talk at the point where he he left it. He com:nplains re of hs be.lt tea and milk diet and won- fly d.i.s why the: .ib, n::t give him some .. , i`- . l . trc iaiing ,,ore recici tiol and exercise. IHe has gained forty pounds sinen he has Leeon at the White House, and his its friends express'considerable solicitude in regard to his physical condition. A prominent physician remarked that tio the present cabinet'are 'workingsimp ly with their heads. They increase in fo avoirdnpois, and the trouble is that the blood vessels will grow soft and tra flabby, swell up and then any undue rai excitement will cause them to burst. ba( His advice to the President and his 1 cabinet was to get patent gymnasiums tali and use them morning and'night in ing their rooms if.they would not take ver outdoor exercise. a pre Even should Secretary Manningro cover, it is fully conceded here ;that h he will never again dare to resume ir the onerous duties of his ofliae. As n Sto his successor, the latest rumor in n tlhe corriders of the Treasury Depart mient, is that IHon. W. L. Scott the E Penn. congressman, will be tendered it that portfolio. Mr. Scott has been sl prominent in the financial discussions el this sesion, and he proposed some plan of his own for settling the silver tI problem. He is said to be the richest cc man in the lower house, and he lives hi in a pale stone house beside Senator st Stanford of California who is said to be the wealthiest senator. y The absence now of stirring political It questions in this country may be per- ac coeived in the nature of Congressional th proceedings. The chief topics dis cussed are those which effect more or es less locally, the business affairs of the O different sections. What we hear of most about just now are the strikes. v( Representative Reed of Kansas sunm- p med up- mood deal of the common sense of the situation when he said during the debate on the arbitration th bill in the house; "It may turn out sIl that this legislation may amount to TI but little. It may turn out that it w, will amount to much. Suppose we try it, and when we learn more, de de more," The tenor of the debate gr throughout showed that, however the M partakers of it might differ about de tails, they were a unit in recognizing in arbitration as the key to the whole St labor problem. Great reforms do er not mature like fungi. Their begin- th nings are often feeble and their evo- th lution the work of time. As Mr. Reed suggests, it is worth trying even an imperfect measure and see how it m4 works. When its faults are apparent Oy they can be corrected. Meanwhile, the friends of progress will have the satisfaction of seeing the United States goveriment, by the hand of de congress, set the stamp of its approval on arbitration as a principle. That of itself will be a great point gained. The chaplain of thehouse has made no more sensational prayers since a BI certain congressman from New York by chbaractenrzd his prayer which refer- co red to strikes as an "incendiary wt speech." Dr. Milburn said he had no ta r- desire to make speeches before con r- gress, and then it is stated that Col. )0 Morrison who is supposed to give all to his thoughts to tariff reduction, wrote ,f the congressman a letter advising a !o more conservative course in regard to f his morning invocations.
