O'DWYER, EDITOR. LOWER RATES. Reduced rates are becoming gener al in the northwest. The Manitoba and the Northern Pacific railroads have just announced a considerable reduction, varying from eighteen to twenty-five per cent, on mnerchandise. Although the Manitoba track has not yet crossed the border, the com pany shows the same .liberal spirit here. In reply to Mr. T. E. Collins of Fort Benton, Mr. Alexander, the general traffic manager, says: I am instructed by Mr. Hill to give you rates on wool to Boston and Chicago. The rate from Fort Benton to Duluth or St. Paul will be $1.25 per 100 lbs.; rate via the Great Eastern line from Duluth to 1 New York, including insurance, 75c; Bos ton, 85c. Consign care Duluth & Sarnia line. Pressed in bales, in carload lots, will be able to bring it from Fort Benton i to St. Paul at $1.05. The rate at present from St. Paul to Chicago, pressed in bales, I is 45c. The rate however, St. Paul to Chicago, will probably be reduced within a month. This rate to Duluth or St. Paul, which is to go into effect next Septem ber or perhaps sooner, is twenty cents lower than that by way of the river and Bismarck, which including insurance would be $1.45. On 2,500,000 pounds of wool which may be handled at Fort Benton in the season, this means a large saving in freight alone, not to speak of the rapid transit by rail, which ensures prompt delivery and quick returns. Of course, the above rate also ren ders it certain that Great Falls will be a large wool market. Growers from hundreds of miles around will be able to ship their wool here direct and thereby often save a long haul by team to Fort Benton or Helena. One of the largest firms in Boston discerns this, for they write us: "We have no doubt much wool .will be eventually shipped from your point." A BALBY CONTEST. The scope of the press is widening. It now embraces babies and may ex tend its sheltering arms to maiden, and widows. The St. Paul Globe an nounces that it has purchased a lot .in the center of the present limits of St..Paul-in one of the most eligible I `spots in the city, where property is .boiiund to become very valuable in < :after years. It is proposed to give I this lot, free of any incumbrance, to some baby who is fortunate enough 3 to hold the lucky number. The deed t will be made to the parents,' who will t be required to hold the: lot in trust t for the child untilithbeonmes of age.~ 'l itheriwghtful owner can do.withi tash oQshe pleases. By that time a A wil be' valuablestiart in life for r. TherIe io harge for Teets 'ey are free for all-who i babies bore betweep J~anua I. Tand August 1, 1887. The Globe fur ther announces that the "Competition is Open to the World, from the White House to the Humblest Home," "with no baron account of race, sex, or previous condition." This offer'is all very well, but the Globe should add a lot in Great Falls to make the for tune of the baby absolutely secure. Minneapolis will probally accept this amendment and thus go one better. We hope to see Great Falls well re presented in the contest anyhow. MM3IEJORIAL DAY. In thousands of graveyards patri otic hands on Monday decorated with a- pious care the graves of gallant sold iers who fell on the field of battle or be died in after years at their homes. at This devotion to the memory of the brave men who died that the Union might live, is a noble spectacle and full of patriotic inspiration. More eloquently than marble monuments does this custom express the gratitude of the nation to those who at the call to arms, rallied round the flag and bore it in triumph from "Atlanta to O the sea." It is fitting that the people should thus pause amid the busy affairs of life, to pay tribute to the memory of it the private soldier as well as the com It mander. Each did his part nobly and 'r risked his life in defense of the n& r tional integrity. Each receives like tokens of loving regard when as in Helena, the daughters of comrades lay plants and flowers upon the graves, and in the evening all assemble to hear the martial story of their toils and their triumphs, retold by eloquent comrades such as Martin Maginnis. The preservation of the union, and the extirpation of slavery with all the ' evils connected therewith, are the ben efits which proceed from the martial valor that we commemorate to-day. We owe to the brave men who fell and to those who survive, the realization of Daniel Webster's prophetic desire, when he expressed the hope that the "gorgeous ensign of te Republic now known and honored throughout the earth," might be "still full high advanced, its arms and trophies streaming in their original lustre; not a stripe erased or polluted, nbt a single star obscured," but bearing for its motto "everywhere spread all over in characters of living light, blazing on all its ample folds as they float over the sea and over the land and on every wind and under the whole heavens, that other sentiment dear to every true American heart-Liberty and Union, now and forever, one and in seperabie!" t In honoring the dead to whom this E inestimable service is due, we honor the living. Sherman and Sheridan, Sickles and Rosecrans, 'as well as the h private soldier whose name is un- h known to fame, may all discern in to- 0 day's celebrations-unmarked by bit terness to our late foes-the undying regard which the nation feels for those who rallied round the flag, "shouting the battle cry of freedom." f .__. ___. ..p. A1, GREAT SYSTEM. 1- The high opinion entertained of the %y Manitoba system in St. Paul, whence Le it starts, may be judged by the follow g ing editorial article from the Pioneer Press of that city: h The vast magnitude of the enterprises n which Mr. Hill now has on hand will, itis said, prevent his building to Huron this year, but neither the people of Huron nor .e the general public need any more specific s assurance of his intentions for the near future than a glance at any recent railroad map. At nunerous points on the main i- lines may be tbserved various offshoots I pointing in a westerly or southerly direc tion. The indefinite extension of these a barnch lines in these directions is neces i sitated by the logical development of the Manitoba system. The time is very near, it is safe to say, 1 when western Minnesota and south Da kota will be gridironed by these and other offshoots of the inain lines of the Mani. toba. They will intersect the Chicago e lines at every important point and give all that region an outlet for its grain at Duluth and amarket of supply at St. Paul, many hundred miles nearer than Chicago and correspondingly cheaper. This is one of the eventualities of the near future-Which many points in south Dakota would lIke to hasten, but which they have only to await with patience as an inevitable and a speedy outcome of the existing situation. Q The next great phase of railroad devel opment is sure to be in this direction, and in that certainty lies the promise of great future for St. Paul. It wilknot then have to fight against heavy odds, against dis criminating tariffs, for an entrance for its trade inton region which is naturally trib. utary to it. The vast area of prosperous territory will find here its natural and, cheapest. market, many hundred miles nearer than Chicago. Anothe "great phase," the Pioneer Press might have said, will be the ea tension of the ~aamtba systemn. throughout Montana. It is not too much to expect that the Manitoba will throw out offshoots here, like those which forin a network in the mining r ion of Pennsylvana.. A so I emarr the follow - ing a ersser t; o l w -widow, whose motto in life is home and a home duties, wishes to correspond with a gentleman of good moral character. , It will damage Montana in the east r to have it supposed that old and 1 young widows have to advertise for husbands. In Great Falls where bachelors are in the majority, no such neglect would be possible. SMn. DICKERSON has our best wishes for his prosperity in Butte, where he takes editorial charge of the Miner.
