O'DWYER, EDITOR. TO THIE PUBLIC. Until further notice Will Hanks will I have entire control of the Daily and Semi Weekly Tribune. .JERRY COLLINS, Basiness Manager Tribune Publishing Co. June 80, 1887. ANNOUNCEMENT. After this issue the management of the Great Falls Daily and Semi Weekly TRIBUNE is assumed by Mr. Jerry Collins, the present editor of the Fort Benton River Press. Since the establishment of the TRI BUsr, a little over two years ago, as an unpretentious weekly, it has ad- I vanced steadily with the development a of northern Montana and the rapid t growth of the rising young city of which it is the recognized champion. It has become a strong, prosperous enterprise, with a large steady circu- c lation and a liberal amount of adver- L tising patronage. a I thank the many friends and pat rons who have contributed so liberal ly to the support of the enterprise. To them is due, in a great measure, the ample success attained by the TRIBUNE financially as well as in in fluence. Mr. Collins has had long, success ful experience in journalism, and will be thoroughly identified with the 1 growth and prosperity of the city. I trust, therefore, that the new manage ment will receive the liberal support and hearty co-operation which has i been accorded in the past. Again, I thank you all. WILL HANKS. BRIGHT PROSPECTS. The outlook.for the mining indus try is bright. The feverish excite ment which followed the Leadville discoveries has long since subsided and given place to ordinary business methods. The speculative stocks are few and the number of shares on the market is small compared with those held by people who are in a position to a retain them so long as they yield fair dividends. The promoters of bogus c enterprises, find their occupation gone because the public look with distrust on any enterprise whose shares can not be placed without such danger ous assistance. In general, gold and silver mines are being developed like those of coal and iron which are not t] made the foot-ball of rival interests ti in the stock exchanges. While the relations of the mining industry with the sources of capital s are thus satisfactory, the outlook for d fair returns is good. No strikes dis- Z turb the great industrial army en gaged in the developmentof the Mon- r tana or other mines. The price of maclnnery and raw material is still n reasonable and railroad frieghts are d more likely to decline than to advance. t Congress will not be likely to disturb the silver law on the eve of a presi- A dential election so that miners will enjoy a full year's security in that h respect. These circumstances joined be with the general growth of the coun try and the extension of the railroads render the outlook for the silver and gold mining industry, very promising. EXHIBIT. to In nearly all the great western cities at there Will be this year state fairs or cc exhibitions. Minnesota will make a M grand' iiaplay of her own, and other g( i ml . . -----.-· i ,. ill I pr®ducttat -6e+ state fair, which is I ( held near St. P al. Minneapolis will I re-open her exhibition, which will ex- I eel in splendor, diversity and generil r attractivenes , the display made last t year. In Chicago, St. Louis and Louisville, as well as in Boston and 0 New York there will also be indus trial collections, which will be open practically to all comers. Each of t these fairs or exhibitions will be visit ed by thousands of people, and the r Lt press will contain long descriptions of p r the varied products on view. More 1 r convincing than statistical tables will u be the products themselves, for they c will tell at a glance the merits of the soil and climate which has produced them. S Montana should avail herself of t these industrial displays to make ti known the greatness of her mineral wealth, the productiveness of her soil e and the excellence of her sheep, horses rn and other live stock. By so doing this territory will attract public atten tion and reap a rich harvest in the large and small investors who will be induced to come here. Each city and county could provide i exhibits that would make, unitedly, a d grand display. Great Falls is prepar- d ed to do her part. This city will con tribute coal, iron ore and limestone , from Sand Coulee; sandstone from c( dl the banks of the Missouri; wheat W grown on the bench lands; brick made m in our own yards and wool from sheep W that range the neighboring hills. p These articles with mineral specimens pt from Neihart and Barker will con- of s81 vince the public that northern Mon- bE tana is the true field for the man of aF enterprise. THE NEW WHEAT BELT. The article which we print to-day in regard to bench lands and crops will he read with interest by all* who are concerned in the advancement of Montana. It shows that the success ful experiment which Mr. Paris Gib son made when he planted trees on the bench land has been followed quickly by experiments on a larger scale, which have demon strated that wheat will grow luxuri antly on those vast tracts, which be cause of their formation are called bench lands. The plants have now attained such growth that a large product may be expected. The stalks are over three feet high and the ears are large and well-formed. The importance of this successful experiment can hardly be over-esti mated. It demonstrates the capacity of the bench lands to produce abun dant crops without irrigation and in ordinary weather. As these lands represent millions of square miles, Montana may, in due time, assume high rank among the wheat produc ing regions. The culture of the cerea will receive a stong impulse from the influx of population and the establish ment of mills, such as the Cataract in this city, which is well equipped and produces flour equal to Pills bury's "Best." STEADY PROGRESS. The first half of the year is closing at Great Falls with many brick blocks in course of erection and lots for stores and residences in demand. Trade is brisk. The saw mills and brick-yards are busy. Prominent people are daily visitors and Secretary - Nichols is busy answering inquiries from people who desire to buy lots or engage in business here. Good reports come from the ranges, the crops and the mines. Every interest will profit by the approach of the lo comotive, whose shrill whistle will be heard here two months hence. THE EXTRA SESSION. F The Independent would like to hear a very general expression of opinion from the territorial press and thinking public on the question of an extra session of the leg islature.-Helena Independent. By all means let there be an extra session. Northern Moatana strongly desires it. Some laws passed last ses sion require immediate amendment. There is also enough new busines to render another session advantageous to the people. If due preparation is made the legislature will be able to do a large amount of work in a short time. Great Falls votes "aye." THE GRADERS ARE now near Fort Assinaboine. preparing the Manitoba road for the tracklayers. So far they R have been, at most, only three days behind the schedule time. Such precision in railroad building has never been known. PRESIDENT CLEVELAND will visit the f' northwest at a good time of the year to form a fair impression of its varied attractions. It would, be better if he e could see the great wheat fields of hi Minnesota and Dakota in all their w golden splendor and the hills and plains of Montana before the grass becomes brown. In October however he will be able to visit Great Falls by railroad. This will make amends for the drawbacks of the autumn season. The Montana Central Ahead. BUTTE, June 80.-The Inter JMownrdtin says: "We commend to the attention of the Northern Pacific officials the fact that the Montana Central seems to have a clear lead in the race to Butte. The line from Helena to Great Falls is practically com pleted, and from the end of the track to the Falls the gap will soon be closed. Then all the energy will be concentrated upon that portion of the road between the capital and Butte, and if the Northern Pacific people fail to do some lively hustl ing the big engines of the Montana Central will be first to awaken the echoes in the Summit valley. Freight is the magnet that is attracting Hill's road in this direc tion at such a rattling pace. The road that gets here first will have a call on most of the business of the biggest city in the northwest." The Inter Mountain also says: "The new road is coming here on the jump, and will arrive none too soon for its own and the public interest. Jumping Denounced. There have been a few vacant lots "jumped" and fenced in Deer Lodge with in the past ten days. In other cases the old owners showed a shotgun title in ad dition to the probate court title, which was deemed satisfactory in all cases. It is hardly necessary to jump, or attempt to jump, vacant lots here. It is dishonest where the title vests in another, and it will cost more if the owner resists it than it would to buy the lot, even if the jumper could establish a claim, which is by no means settled. Then there are lot owners who will not wait for legal process to eject a jumper. Let this lot-jumping stop. People who have purchased these lots and paid taxes on them should not be robbed of them under any pretense. Ejectment suits should be begun wherever a lot has been jumped. Good public sentiment is against jumping. We trust it has ceased. -The New Northwest. A New Company. HELENA, June 29.-Articles of incorpor ation of the St. Louis Milling and Mining company of Montana were yesterday filed in the office of Recorder Frederick. The incorporators therein named are Michael J. fHartnett and Charles T. Remme, of St. Louis, and William Mayger of this city.
