WEDNESDAY. DECEMBER 21. 1887. Semi- Weekly OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT. Farewell to Chotean county! Great Falls is big. enough to be a county seat, and at Sunday midnight she assumed that dignity. At the same time Cascade county came into legal existence. From the Belt mountains to Sun river, and from the Dearborn to Wolf creek, the people will rejoice that they are citizens of a young, prosperous county which is the rail road center of northern Montana, and will bear on her shield the motto: "Mining, Agriculture, Commerce." In parting from Chotean and other counties, Cascade county wishes them prosperity and salutes cordially all her sister counties. All hail to Cas cade countyl If the twin territories, Montana and Dakota, merit statehood after the presidential election, why not before? Neither of the great parties can af ford to say, "We shall keep you out because we are afraid you will cast your votes against us." They should bear in mind that taxation without representation is tyranny. It is un just of the other states to elect a pres ident, to pass bills and confirm presi dential appointments regardless of the rights of Montana and the other territories. Our delegate should be allwed to vote as well as to speak. Mr. Toole is competent to do both. The Anglo-American commission will evidently accomplish nothing. Canada would allow our fishermen free access to her inshore fisheries if we would admit her fish duty free. This is more than Mr. Bayard could promise, because congress is not dis posed to make any such trade with the Canadians. Eventually England may concede all we want and let Can ada shift for herself. We can bide our time. Senator George's bill, which pro vides that all patents shall be subject to purchase by the government for general use at a fair valuation, should meet with approval. Under it inven tors could be amply rewarded, while the general publie would profit by the -results of their skil' without paying enormounaroyalties in one way o~i. anothe-_r_. or a ne ra se s that she does not desire nor. fear war.

Falls, Montana. t r r Great Falls is located at the falls of the Missouri, which furnish the greatest available water-power on the continent. 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 P&j fic 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 Iele;est magnificent series of water-falls in the world, while the surrounding country is rich in picturesque scenery.

His last effusion says in effect: "If you let me alone I'll let you alone." Slan derers generally wind up with such an appeal. There is hope for the civilization of the Indian when we read that Sit ting Bull and his friends have raised $5,000 and will go to Washington to see that some money is paid them di rect instead of through the hands of the Sioux. White men could hardly be more prudent. The Indianas alob byist will be a amusing spectacle. It is a proper satire on the territo rial system when a delegate from the strip of public land called Cimarron asks to be placed on an equality with delegates froth Montana and Dakota Doubtless Cimarron will be added to New Mexico and that will be the last of it. Keeley who has all the appearance of a honest horny handed son of toil continues to delude the public. He is undoubtedly a good, ordinary me chanic, but there his merits end. SYMPATHY FOB IRELAND. Senator Sherman Presides at a Great Meeting. WASHINGTON, December 16.-Sir Thomas Grattan Esmonde" and Hon. Arthur O'Connor,,leaders of the Irish home rule cause in the English parlia ment, arrived in the city Wednesday afternoon and were tendered a reception at Masonic Temple by the Irish societies of the city. When the distinguished guests arrived t at the temple they were escorted to seatse on the platform, where a large number t of senators and representatives were pres ent to do them honor. Senator Sherman was chosen chairman. He was greeted I with loud applause, and in acknowledg ing the compliment said he believed he spoke the general voice of the people in every part of the union when he said to p the distinguished guests that the sympa thy of America went forth fully and heartily in a strong desire that they might have home rule in ,Ireland to the full extent demanded by Parnell and Gladstone. He wanted Ireland to possess the same rights as those enjoyed by the people of the United States. Why was it the British government denied to the gem of the British empire what was, con ferred on all the colonies of this great empire? Irishmen had led. in, the advance of all the great battles which' England had fought for two .entuuries. Ireland had furnished aie thDemostees and Ciceros of nmodern times. It.land had produced great =men.n ueveyy branch of life. .He hoped thepleading. . ,ce of (*ladston~ the greatest statesman of the Sage, woun induce theBr.iih parliament | to grant home rule. r Senator Ingalls, after the applausewith ` which he was greeted had subsided, maid Two iluastrious Irish me.rbe .: of i.: .

Arthur. O'Connor, who was received with cheers, said he was sensible of the greatness and sacredness of the cause which he had the honor to repre sent here in Washington, the headquar ters of freedom, the capital of the grand est and freest community the world had ever seen. No cause which was not just could call for such a distinguished audi ence. Ireland was attempting by the force of organiled public opinion, by constitutional and peaceful means, to secure the repeal not of a law, but of a conquest. Senator Hawley was the next speaker. He said the speech of Mr. O'Connor was the statement of a terrible fact, a terrible argument. Humanity everywhere should say that he had stated wrongs which must be remedied. He joined uery gladly in the welcome to these distinguished repre sentatives of the great liberal party of the great British empire. Resolutions were unanimously adopted extending a hearty greeting to Messrs. Esmond and O'Con nor, protesting in the name of humanity against the tory policy toward Ireland. FAVORABLY IMPRESSED. Mr. Grews Gives a . Good Report of the Cataract City and its People. J. E. Grews, of the American Express, writes as follows In the Cincinnate Ex press Gazette: Geat Falls, the western terminus of the Saint Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba, and eastern terminus of the Montana Central railways, is a comparatively new town, having been established about one year and a half ago, and now numbers more than one thousand inlfabitants, with every prospect of a magnificent growth in the early spring. Unlike many young and rapidly growing towns, Great Falls possesses splendid business structures of brick and stone. Moreover, the brick is manufactured in the immediate vicinity. All branches of business are represented here, and all are thriving without the exaggerated appearance of an unhealthy boom, but that of steady, prosperous, legitimate btlsiness. Before passing from this branch of our subject allow us to especially mention the palatial Park hotel. After their long journey this hos telry is a veritable "haven of rest" to the hard working messengers who once a week check into Pat Kelley, the aggree sive and popular agent for the American Express and Saint Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba railway. Great a.ils to Seattle. It seems probable that a new line tothe Pactfic coast will be constructed by the Saint Paul, Minneapolis & Manitoba road. The Montana extension of that great sys tem now ends at Great Falls, 1,001 miles west from Saint Paul. It is. understood that surveys are being pushed from Great Falls west via Flathead lake and the Koo tenai country in, Idaho, and at the same time thre is,good reason to believe that the Seattle, Lake Shore & Eastern Rail way Company, wbich is actively engaged in building :road from Seattle, eastward, i n thinterest of l Manitoba compIny, adtha thia s line is intended toform con tion ra3mnlmately with the extension ! from the e.
