NEW LICENSE LAW.
Some Details of the Act which Goes into Effect To-day. Thelicense law passed at the last session, goes into effect to-day. It is a long docu Inent and well calculated to weary the general reader in search of information. The provisions are stringent and are likely to give rise to complaint. The collection of licenses is entrusted to the county treasurer. Eighty-five per cent of the amount is to be retained by him for coun ty purposes and the remainder is to be Banded over to the territorial treasury. Per. sons who are subject to the tax are prohi $>ited from carrying on business without a license, under a penalty of not less than $10 Ilor more than $100. Licenses are payable in advance. Some of the license fees, which concern cities in northern Montana, are as follows: Billiard or pool table, $10 per quarter; theatres, $2 per month; lawyers, dentists, 3physicians, surgeons and all other profes alons, insurance and real estate agents, $16 a year; in erchants, first-class, $5; Restau rants, boarding houses and hotels $2.50 per quarter when the business is less than $2,000 per quarter, and $2.50 for each ad ditional $2,000. Liquor dealers in places of 3,500 people or over. $500; over 1,000 and under 3,500 people, $320; over 300 and under 1,000 people, $240; places of less than 300 people, $180; general license, $100-the above are yearly rates. Distillers are to pay $600 a year; whole sale liquor dealers, first-class,$200; second, $125; brewers, $5 to $20 per month; soda *water makers, $5 per month. Gambling 21ouses shall pay $100 per quarter in places of over 300 peorle; faro tables, $40 per month; percentage stud poker tables, $500 a month; roulette, $500 a month; other banking games, $500 a month. In places of less than 300 people, half the amount paid in larger towns. Hawkers or pedlers and all traveling merchants, $5 per quarter; those who travel with a horse and wagon, $15 per quarter; with two horses, $20 per quarter; -with a pack animal, $5 per quarter for such pack animal. Road, bridge and wa ter companies are also to pay licenses ac cording to the extent of their business. Laundries pay $5 per quarter; bowling alleys or shooting galleries, $10 per quar ter; stage and express coinpanies, $10 per quarter in each county; commercial trav elers, $100 per quarter or $300 per year (under a recent decision this tax does not apply to commercial travelers from other other states). Treasurers who fail to collect licenses are liable to pay double the amount with all costs of suit. The population of places shall be determined by multiplying the nuftber of votes at the last genera] election by three. Rules are laid down in the act regarding liquor licenses and the management of liquor stores. Goods for Great Falls.

Is within seven miles of the most extensive coal and iron district in the West, immediately beyond which are rich gold, silver and copper districts. It lays tributary the best agricultural and grazing part of the territory, and the pineries of the upper Missouri and its tributaries. It is especially adapted by its natural resources and geographical position to become the leading manufacturing city between Minneapolis and the Pacific ocean, and the principal railroad center of Montana. The trip to Great Falls will amply repay tourists by the beauty of the scenery on the way, and they will find here the most magnificent series of water-falls in the world, while the surrounding country is rich in picturesque scenery.

Ed- Mr. Kingsbury says that James McGar is, ry of Belle Plains, fell off a Missouri river :es steamer near Wolf Point on Sunday, June 40 12, and was drowned. It is supposed that eil, his parents live in Mount Forest, Ontario. ir- lie was coming to Great Falls. The steam boat officers said nothing about the affair. Col. Napier denies empatically that he 7, was worsted by a treacherous cayuse. He ed writes: "The account of my experience with a 'fiery steed' given in your paper .d of the 14th initant, has only recently been n- brought to my notice. Fortunately for he me the 'fiery steed' did not score the vic in, tory as described, for I am happy to say there was nothing 'lamentable in my ap na pearance,' neither were my 'clothes rent,' to nor my 'limbs swollen' and they remain w as serviceable as ever they were." in Mr. Paris Gibson says that the plans and a specifications for building the ten piers in n, the Missouri river for the wagon bridge are now at the office of the townsite com er pany. They have been sent here by Col. m J. T. Dodge, in order that any one who ad desires to bid may inspect them. 'Ihe masonry is to be of cut stone, laid in cement, and is to be completed by No vember. It will probably amount to over at 1,100 cubic yards. Col. Dodge will re ceive proposals until the 12th instant at Helena. It is requested by the marshal of the day and his assistants that all organizations and associations meet on the park grounds, opposite the Park hotel, sharp at 11 a. m. on the 4th of July. The Fort Shaw band is expected here by 9 a. m. The oldest organization will take the right of line. All citizens on horseback, in carriages or on foot are especially requested to fall in line, so as to make the procession as im posing as possible. George F. Field, marshal of the day; A. T. Frame, R. R. t-otchkiss, assistant marshals. A stranger attempted suicide in this city on Tuesday evening. It appears that he came nere a few weeks ago with his wife, a colored woman. He doubted her fideli ty and sought comfort in drink. On Tues day evening while drunk he supposed that his wife's lovers were after him and he made a large cut in his wrist. Blood flowed freely and the wound might soon have been fatal had not some persons found him and procured medical aid. He recovered sufficiently to leave town yes terday. His wife has followed him. Pretty soon the clerk who has to be ex cused of an afternoon because he is too ill to sit at his desk at work will be found sit ting for three houm s in the sunon the hard side of an unplaned board seat, shouting i like a madman when his favorite ball team is getting whipped.--Boston Post. Sew on buttons over a darning needle, and, when done, pull out the needle and the buttons will be found to be much looser than those sewed on'in the ordinary way and will not pull off as easily. In cases of bites by poisonous insects, friction with a flapnel saturated with hot alcohol should be resorted to immediately. Perhaps this would remove the itching cu ed bymlsquito bites. TILE FIRST NATIONAL. The Close of a Prosperous Year First Customers Hospitably e Entertained. a A year ago to-day the First National Bank of Great Falls opened its doors for the transaction of business. Its business has increased steadily with the growth of the town, and at a recent meeting of the directors it was voted to increase the cap ital from $50,000 to $100,000 on the first day of July. In commemoration of the e event and as a testimonial of their regard for those who opened accounts with the e bank on the first day, a year ago, and have g done business with it since that time, Cashier Phelps and Assistant Cashier Dickerman invited all the first depositors to attend a banquet, at the bank parlor, Pafter business hours last evening. Among those present were Paris Gibson, Ira Myers, H. O. Chowen, R. R. Ilotchkiss, d M. Harris, Phil Gibson and Will HIanks. After opening the first bottle of cham pagne, Cashier Phelps said: "Gentlemen-Our object in inviting I r you here is to offer a slight testimonial of e the manner in which the officers of the bank appreciate the good-will of its friends and customers. Our bank was one year old at the close of business hours to-day. Its growth has kept pace with the ad e vancement of the city, and it enters on its e second year with increased capital, a stronger and larger board of directors, and a long list of customers, which will be r augmented when, next fall, Great Falls a becomes the railroad center of north- 1 r ern Montana. It affords me pleasure to say that during the past year our losses foot up less than $50, and we have made, clear of all expenses eight and one-half per cent on our capital of $50,000." [Ap plause.] Toasts were offered and complimentary 1 mention was made of Col. Broadwater, the president of the bank, and of Mr. J. J. Hill, who is one of the stockholders. All present made "short talks," and the anni. versary was celebrated very enjoyably. j For Rent.
