Mr Parker is a rising young attorney, located at Great Falls, where he has recently practiced his profession. FIGHTING THE "BIG FOUR." Mr. Laine Higgs' Opinion of the [Minne sota Law. Mr. Laine Higgs who has given much attention to the meat inspection laws and regards them with disfavor as unfair to Montana and the states in general. "What are the aims of the Minnesota bill?" he was asked by a TRIBUNE report er. "The reasons," he replied, "put forward by thiose favoring such a bill are mainly these: First, sanitary; second, to make a home market for beef raised within the state; third, to build up home industries, as slaughtering houses and stockyards, and, lastly, because other states have passed such a law, or about to do so. "What is the essence of the sanitary plea?" "As to the sanitary question, I would say that in itself it is all right, but I fail to see where it is enforced, when in one of the St. Paul papers that has favored the bill I have read in one column of the paper favoring and crying inspection and sanitary regulation, while in another col umn I read of the St. Paul distilling com pany at South St. Paul and the Malt House company, and how the Union stockyards syndicate have erected feed ing sheds that will hold 8,000 cattle." "How as to home production?" "As to making a home market for cattle raised within the state, I ask can Minne sota raise her own beef? Is she a cattle state? I answer no. Her lands are too valuable to turn into grass. Her farmers are too industrious to wait for a calf to become a four-year-old. They would rather raise wheat; and, if stock, to sell the calves and make butter. The South St. Paul house has been running for a year, and the farmers have done nothing to give that institution good beef cattle." "It is said that they will buy Montana cattle?" Saon must remember that Montana can count her cattle in bunches of a thousand where Minnesota counts her's by twenty and thirty. When a Montana shipper goes to market he charters a train. Now let me ask when will the time come that a market in St. Paul or Minneapolis will ever afford to secure and buy up from two to five such shipments in one day? The time will never come, because no Montana shipper will ever be foolish enough to ship to a dead market. On the other hand they will not ship in small lots." "Will the 'big four' resent this meas ure ?" "That remains to be seen, I cannot see what there is to stop the 'big four' froln forming a company and erecting in each state an establishment with a capacity sufficient to supply the demand of the state where located and then buy every bullock that is offered for sale in the yards and then slaughter them there, or ship them alive from one state to another, or abroad, and place the beef to city butchers at their own prices. They can still ship their offal in its crhde state to Chicago, where they now have the improved ma chinerW for treating it, and thus hold the home dealers still at their mercy." IMr. Higgs holds to the opinion that the true solution for all this conflict is to slaughter the steers in Great Falls where healthycattle cal be procured from the ranges. T'his will preclude all danger of disease and losses incidental to railroad transportation on the hoof to Chicago or St. Paul. IHe holds in brief, that dressed beef should be prepared for market near the greao ranges and distributed hence to the large markets of the world. DOWNING LOWRY.

The Wheat Croj n C u.i g ttilm Efming In. [Special Correnpondence of the TaeBUNa.] KIBBrY, April 15.--Everyone here is on the alert for railroad news. Most of the grain is sowed. The early sown wheat is looking fine. We had some rain here on the 18th. The grain shows the good effects. of it already. There has been a large acreage of wheat put in this season in and around Kibbeh, but the country at present needs more rain. Y. A. Wall & Co.'s saw mill is turning out lumber to supply all demands. This part of the county is fast filling up with a first-class lot of people, so that fancy locations are becoming scarce. On Saturday, April 14th, we had a funeral at this place and chose a piece of ground to be laid off for a cemetery. On account of the height of it some of those at the funeral appropriately sug gested the name of Calvary for the new burial ground. Born, near this place, on the 7th of this month, to the wife of Mr. Joseph Lavote, a son. Died, on April 12, 1889, the infant daughter of Edward and Mrs. Peterson, aged five hours. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of the entire commun ity in their sad bereavment. More anon. Naws-.ATHERER. TIMELY ADVICE. How Prospetors Found Land to Suit Them. Three Michigan land seekers came in the other day. They hired rigs from Mr. Paul and made several trips to the neigh boring country. "Well," said the spokesman to Mr. Paul, "we are discouraged. We have seen plenty of land, but found nothing to suit us. I think we will go back." Mr. Paul advised them not to give up. "You are," he said, "men of family and are the kind we need here. I'll tell you what to do. Take my rig and go to High wood at my expense. I will give you a letter to a ranchman who will show you the country and tell you all about it." The land seekers took Mr. Paul at his word. They went to Highwood and saw the ranchman. One of them bought his ranch and the other two filed on quarter sections. The new settlers are delighted with the country and will send home for their families. The moral of all this is that when the right kind of men come here in quest of land they find it, but cranks who would be dissatisfied in the garden of Eden are not likely to settle down here or any where else. No genuine land-seeker lacks advice in finding a tract to suit him. Mr. Paris Gibson and his efficient aids Messrs. Webster, Dickerman and Mortson leave nothing undone to put men on the right track. iMessrs. Dyns, Randall, Barnes & Collet, Hanks & Atkinson and others also willingly advise the prospector as to the best place to locate. A person is seldom sick, when their bowels are regular and never well when they are irregular. Bear this in mind and keep your bowels regular by an oc casional dose of St. Patrick's pills.

It is a busy scene at the smelter these days. The third furnace has been plac ed in blast and the fourth will doubtless be at work on the first of next week if not sooner. It is common now for ore to arrive In train loads of 14 cars each of which contains 20 tons. Some of these train-loads are worth $28,000. The plant is so well devised that quick work is done in unloading the cars which come back laden with silver-lead bullion for eastern refineries. The ores are divided into two great classes-those which need roasting andse those which do not, ' The ore is first taken to the sampling works in order that they may be crushed and their value determined. These works embody all the latest improvements. They contain an automatic cut-off engine of a hundred and fifty horse-power, built by IIendy & Myer of Denver, who have provided most of the iron work on the spot. This engine drives a system of one large Blake crusher, one small stone crusher, a pair of large rollers, and a. small grinding machine. Besides this, it also sets in motion an automatic sampling mill, which both pulverizes and samples those ores that are subjected to the pre paratory process, a rather great degree of fineness being required for this. This automatic department consists of stone crusher, elevator, trommel-screen, a large pair of Cornish rollers, and a small pair, and automatic sampling device, which takes out any desired proportion of the ore as It passes through the mill. It re quires only two men to run it, and it is a very pretty design. It is very accurate, rsechanically so. The ore is taken from hoppers in this mill into tram-cars andl run on a system of elevated tram-ways into the upper series of bins between the samplingworks and the roasting house. The oxidized ares,-whloh-are ssampledih the sanmpling works, are taken down to the lower bins. There is an extensive system of railroad tracks running between the upper and lower ore bins and connecting the samp ling works with the other parts of the plant. IMMIENSE FURNACES. From the roasting furnaces, after the the ore has been roasted down to five per cent of sulphur, it is drawn into wheel barrows and dumped into a set of bins, before it is finally charged in the blast furnaces. These same bins contains the ores that do not require roasting. From these bins tile ore is taken into the blast furnace building as it is required. This building is 162x100 feet. It has at pres ent four finished blast furnaces. The size of these is, in the cruciable, 96 inches by 42 inches. The height from the furnace floor to the charge floor, which is the low est level of the works, or that of the slag dump, is 16 feet. The blast furnaces are provided with steel water jackets, with a 5 inch water space and eleven tuyeres, with an automatic vodve. The blast fur naces are of Mr. Eiler's patent, with clos ed tops, being fired through doors on the sides. A down pipe 4 feet in diameter takes the gasses and flue dust down into a large flue, which is of cross section suf flcient for 10 blast furnaces, and with the flue dust chamber is 500 feet long. The huge stack is 12 feet in diameter and 150 feet high. Night and day the hugh fur naces are kept at work. When the ore has run its course in the fiery furnace the metallic product is al lowed to pour off and form into blocks. Samples are taken from these blocks and then they are ready for shipment to the east. The slag comes forth in molten masses and is taken outside where it has already formed an immense heap beside the swift-flowing Missouri. At times Mr. Eilers himself extracts the molten slag from the furnace with a long iron rake. Good discipline reigns throughout the large establishment which is the pride of Montana and foreshadows the time when she will be the largest gold and silver producer in the world. PARKS FOR THE PEOPLE. MsIayor Gibson Makes an Important An nouncemeiut. In the city council last evening Mayor Gibson made the important announce ment that the townsite company would present the city with two small parks and the larger one, provl led the city under takes to take proper care of them and embellish them.
