.A TELE(:.IA line we wlant and must have
Our town has frequently sufferr:a from
want of telegraphic comiununication with
the rest of the country. ireat Falls has
already in her mnidst, men of active mind
and ready capi'ta'. They need tolegrams:
they desire inet:u" t c ('amnnicti:on with
their business partn.r,. S:tring t:: a ]ins
from the old !Lnton r~:!, it wi!! pay.
THE 49th ~ O of cnreas h.le com -
pleted its work. As a !egSn ative budy it
"has not done muc:ih for the beneit of the
people. President C leveand a veted
the pension bills, has by his recommnend l
tions so restrictel the ha:rb'r an' river
bills that they are practic:'l!y useless.
However. how much we brag of our den- t
ocratic administzation few of the results c
of it have given much satisfaction to the
country at larrge.
to uC;IsurS after a long and arduous ses- 1
sion, has achieved but little. Our sea coast n
and naval defenses hiae been passed over Ii
in a manner which reticets no credit upon n
the representatives of our national con- r
~tituancy. The harbor and river bills seem a
to have been considerod as matters of no *c
account to the people at large. Another t!
session of Congress will be held in De- n
cember, and perhaps during that session i<
some of the immediate wants of the peo
ple may be consiacred.
Tire opposition to the creation of Cas- s,
cade county has been the result of pure tl
jealousy. Anything to prevent the pro- h
gress of Great Falls seems to be the ruling o
idea. We cannot understand why our it
sneighbors should have this feeling when tb
they know beyond any doubt that their is
towns can never be the rivals of Great a
Falls. So rapid will be the growth of the ii
city at the falls, that we expect before a a
year has passed, our neighbors, and Jerry o
Collins especially, will hang their heads
in shame when they remember their fool
ish attempts to retard its progress. He is
dull of comprehension, indeed, who t
knowing something of the powerful com- a
binations that have been made for the de- a
selopment of Great Falls and its rescur- f
.ces cannot see that it will be the foremo~t j
-city of this region.
TIxE Macleotl Gazette has a long article
headed "That Monopoly," and seems to be
in a most uncomfortable condition. Let
the Macleod folks comfort themselves
with the fact that the Manitoba and Mon- 1
tans Central will keep their promises to N
the public. Calgary will, before another (
year rolls over our head, be in communi- s
cation with Great Falls. .Let that suffice t
them for the present. Its not every town c
that can boast (of connection with Great I
SFalls.
Tsar 3-assacihusetta statesman Hoar
has nmet his nmatch. Years ago, and we
have not forgotten it, he played a proni- t
nent part in thei Senate which resulted in
a defeat of a Chinese restriction bill.
rn President Haves, no doubt, though that a t
following of New England's policy was
i'd the correct thing when he vetoed the
(Clshiese restriction bill. I'r. Hoar was
gratified. We have lived into another
era. Mr.1 iar finds that his ungentle
nianly coniduct hs reeie recive reprimand t
at t, handIs and by the voices of Senators
Beck h ad llnc..:burn The ercbuke is well
timed and deserved. Let those old chron
i's from the east learn that mien further
west can attain to sole knowledge of
public affairs, and can publicly expain
what they know.
'T u-E Cicr 1'r.,l: editor, in leading thln
Sthe Benton forlorn hope, has seen fit t,
show extraordinary meanness toward the
Great Pails Townsite Co., as any one can
see who has perused the copies of the i.
r- P. for =ome weeks past. One would natur
d. ally aik, "what has that company done to
, stir" up editor Jerry so badly'?." If we are a
os corre:tly informed he has neither been ill
e- treated'i or abused by the Great Falls Co.
On. the contrary he is said to be consider
ably ai.head tinalcii:ily in conseguence of
tie c:ltis.auce of that compuay. It is the
Sesi nce of meanness doubly distilled, for
SJerry Collins to slur or ridicule the Greai
SFalls Townsite Co., the principle mo1:lu.rn
of which are aabout to ressurrect poor old
Fort Be:iton and breathe lift iinto it, but
o also are, by the building of the _-::h;i

let him: ask the average Benton citizen
what makes that town the dullest and
deadiest town in Mont:ana, and he will get
the reply that it is the narrow. pig eared
po!icy of the two ex-Indian trading filmi
of that place. No wonder they oppose the
huilding of a cityat Great Falls and the
deveilopment in northern Montana of the
greatest water power north of Mason and ii
Dixon's line. It is a notorious fact that at
f least one of these firms is bitterly opposed
to the Manitoba road and its far rea.ching
beneficial results for all this section of
the wedt. It is not su.prising that the
citizens of Benton (by which is maont Ba- G
her & (o:., and Power & Bros.) should op- et
pose the formation of any now counties in
northern Montana. .Terry Collins :tates pI
that the creation of Crscad' county had 3
no merit in it, while his brother T. E. Col
lins claims that the measmtre has great t
merit and should have been passed. Jer
ry Collins could not run his paper with
out the support of the Conrad, Power
*combination, while his brother is at liberty '
to be governed by his own good judg
ment. Let the people decide whose opin- .
ion is entitled to the greater weight.
Japanese Journalism. L
Newspaper editors in Japan have to V
send their first proofs of every edition to th
the mikado's minister of state, who draws
his blue pencil through anything that is bi
objectionable. Every paper has a jail ed
itor. He is a dummy. The paper is of- se
ten involved in suits, and when a process I
is sued out the officer enters the sanctum
and takes away with him the dummy ed- tl
itor, who answers all purposes and whose t
absence does not deprive the paper of any
of its working force.-Chicago Tribune.

E United States senator-elect George
s- Hearst, of California is going to the senate 1
0 with a sound policy in view. While in
r Chicago on his way to Washington to be
- sworn in in, he is reported as having said
e that lie will be in the senate to effect some
i changes in the currency denomination.
it lie wants gold coin to be issued in tenanom
inations of not less than $20, so that all the
greater monied transactions can ine made
tr with gold. lIe wants silver to be made to
Sfill the mediumn of "small change." Todo t
t:is, lie desires that silver certilicates be
issued in denominations ,f :5 'an 10 -
nu't lower--and ha e silver half .'s to
take the place of the silver doll I'le
silver dollar and the silver certificates, he
s:y.s, are a nuisance, whereas the silver
ha;lf dollar etacs the convenience of all.

Colorado's Red Headed Statesman.

or i lkws of Colorado," said a staicsnan
:r.icetl. "t'- r ,at es the et1ices the represenuttives
of that :state in congress to have red hair?

A Ghastly Trophy.
One of the most remarkable sights was
described to me some years ago by a Geor
gian. A party were out deer Iunting
when an animal was started that was seen
to lnve a round white object attached to
els horns. It was finally shot, and impal
ed upon one of the points was the skull of
a human being, probably a hunter that
the buck had turned upon and struck so
f violently that its horns had completely
penetrated the skul and tile ghastly trophy
had been worn ever since.--San Fr'ancise
Oscillation of Chimneys.
The extent or degree of the oscillation
of chimneys has been exactly measured
by observation of the shadows cast by the
sun upon the ground. An instance in point
is that of a chimney 113 feet high and 4
feet in'eiameter externally at the top, near
Marseilles, France, the oscilations of
which were observed by the shadow du
ring a high wind to attain a maximum of
twenty inches.-- c ,-. Y0,k Saln.
