For sle by Lapeyre GROWING ALL THE TIME. Gratifying Opinion by A. Lambeth Regarding the Neihart Mines. Nick Kessler, the Helena Brewer, Predicts that Great Falls will Advance Rapidly. Mr. Mardis Explains Why the Meat Industry Would Thrive Here A Good Field for it. A. Lambeth, mining superintendent and expert--The Dakota mine at Nel hart will be worked this season extensive ly. Warren Toole has bonded the inter est of Louis Bergeron and other miners interested and has completed arrange ments to devolop the property ?n a lib eral scale. I believe that i. a month the Dakota can ship 1000 tons every 30 days and in time a much larger amount. Neihart will be a wonderful camp and so will Barker, Wolf creek and the other districts being opened up. I expect to see Neihart stand second to Butte as a mining town and camp before very long. Nick Kessler, the Helena brewer-I believe that Great Falls will be one of the largest and best cities of the north west. We can not realize what it will be 10 and 20 years from this time. Ten years ago Montana did not have a rail. road and our largest town had scarcely more people than Great Falls. See the wonderful changes in these few yearsl But in the ensuing decade the progreu will be many times greater, and Great Falls as a railroad and manufactur ing center is in a position to advance more rapidly than any other city in the state. I believe that every 75 cents put in Great Falls real estate will be a dollar in six months,and that in special locations the advance will be 100 per cent. If I had money to spare out of my business I would put at in here as qumck as light ning. C: M. Loring. in the Minneopolis Journal-This is my last year in any inc public position. I havebeen long enough in the harness to earn a rest, and I am going to take one. I consider the pre- C sent park board one of the ablest that we ever had, and eminently capable of tak ing care of the park system. I was talk ing with one of the men of Boston the other day and he told me that the inter est they have paid on their park bonds gi is more than the entire park system of Minneapolis had coat. H. G. McIntire--I have examined very thoroughly the Davies claim to owner ship of certain lands in Great Falls and have come to the conclusion that his al leged titles are not worth the recorder's fees. This Is my conclusion on the gen eral merits of the case without regard to the statute of limitation. Parts Gibson-I think Great Falls can afford to rejoice today over the change of weather. The indications are that the turning point has been reached. It may not be long until we are all crying for a . But-, tio m.rchant tailor.-Dusi ness is good and I have more orders than I can fll. I consider the outlook bright er than ever for Great Falls. W. J. Winters.-There is more work than ever before, and I consider that we have only commenced. As the season advances more buildings will be started Pt and more workmen will be required. I have all the work I can attend to and the outlook Is very bright. Jonathan Goon--I have ust p'anted eight acres of box elder. Box elder and cottonwood do well here but they need plenty of water. I have somefinecotton woods that I planted a few years ago. Prairie dogs destroyed some maples which I had. There ought to be a law to fine people who do not kill of any prairie dogs that may be on their ranches. Ti There are places in Band coulee which SI they have rumaed. H. O. Chowen-Arrangemepts have Sbeen made for a wool warehouse and stock yards at Armington. Lots are in s demand there. LOCAL INTERESTS DISCUSSED. a Buiessa Improvements Weekly--Cash Sales Common. t Howard Criss-We are doing a lot of work. There is not as much ready cash « R for blacksmithing, but we are kept busy, h and it all comes in gradually. e Mr. Elliot - Business is improving I. every week. Some days when the wind 'e is bad, it knocks all business out, bat at w 0 the end of the week the balance shows an increase in sales. A large Dumber of people are paying cash and that makes ' business pleasanter. Mardis, the grocer-There is right herc at Great Falls a splendid opening for a Sslaughter-house, packing and canning and cold storage establishment. The hobeef and mutton is raised in great quan- is ttty in the Immediate country and could be furnished at a low figure.

With a slaughtering and cold storage es tablishment here, the animals could be - slaughtered in the fall and early winter o when the meat is tender and juicy and kept tor spring use. At present our q meat as shipped in from Chicago and the added freight makes the cost more than ia we ought to pay.
