CASCADE COUNTY NOTES. uev. J. . MeGrelor Ulves His Impren sions for the Benefit of Hoosiers. The history, geography, and geology of the Rocky Mountain region are of in tense interest to the citizen as well as the student. The cllmate is so congenial to animal life that cattle, horses and sheep live, thrive and multiply with the least possible care, probably not one tenth the care they would receive in Indiana. It is said to be similar 600 miles northwest of Great Falls. Just over the mountains it is better, and not far distant almost no winter. I have been told that the Great Northern (Manitoba) has not been block aded, nor delayed an hour since the first year, while the Union Pacific had long blockades last winter. My friend and classmate, Mr. Collins of the Great Falls TRIBUNE, conilrms the statement of Mr. McGinnis and the con ductor, (all have been here during the time) that the trains are not delayed on account of snow. Settlers live in log buts, the like hardly to be found in In diana, and appear to be healthy and prosperous. All this would hardly be expected so near the north pol , where the days are perceplbly longer than at Mt. Vermon. The atmosphere is very dry and that or something else accounts for the power of animal life to endure. To illustrate, as I first looked upon Dakota's prairies I saw an elevation seeming to be eight or ten feet just across a field one half or three quarters of a mile, but a trainman said that is a ridge eighteen or twenty miles distant. When I first saw the mountains from the train in the Milk River valley they looked like hills a mile and a half or two miles beyond the river. I asked one just from Evansville how far do you think it is to those mountains? "About ten miles;" but it is thirty. At Great Falls we can see the Rocky mount ains 100or 150 miles. Often newcomers propose to take their guns for an after noon hunt in the Bcrt mountains, thirty miles. This shows how different Mon taos is from some other parts. The geologic formation of the region of northern Montana and Dakota con tributes to the fertility and durability of the soil. The surface indicates thatthere was a sea here long after the forming of other parts of the continent. The gullies and washes, the liae and sand stone cause the surface of fhe esrth to appear very different from that of Indiana, Ohio, or Virginia, and show that the different forces operated. In Dakota there is an elevation called Coteaus "(hills ot) the Missouri. It is supposed great icebergs press lna southward pushed out these hills or ridges which separates the waters of Mouse river which flows into the As sinniboine, then into the Red river, Lake Winnipeg and finally Hudson bay, from the waters of the Missouri river. Both limestone and sandstone are found in Montana, but there are many kinds of pebbles; showing plainly that both forces and sources of formation differ. A result is there are various kinds of soil, and often the very best is found on the hill side and in valleys. Near Great Falls grass roots grow down t ow and three feet, some places the soil dbs not change in appearance 12 feet deep. Con ldar ing the waste of the moutainss, the want of ra!n on bench-lands, acnd the fer tslity of the foothills and the ready cash market for all products of the earth grown here, a blind man ought to see that those who get good land sure of rain may do well. There are persons coming to Great Falls almost daily and look on the dry benches and mountains and turn back disgusted. That is not the way togo to a new country. Take it as it s and make the best of the chance. This is not Utopia, the climate is not perfect, but I am sure parties will come here yet and do wellin health and competence. The country is new; sahoolsechurches, fences, residenes, and conveniences are wanting, but that is the opportunity of te man that ought to come here. Anyone who has a good farm in Posey and good health does not need to dome though he might better his condition. But there are many with poor health or poorer pockets that could do well here far better with the same effort. The conditions meet, free land, good soil and a ready market. In verity J. F. McGuino..

Remmler Rapidly Weakening Under the lHorrible Strain of Uncertainty. .AusaaN, N. Y., April 80.-The sun shone bright on the lawn in front of Kemmler's cell, and the robins sang and whistled in the ivy. There was the same dribbling stream of curious looking peo ple on State street, and there was the same halt in front of the big iron gates as before. The one-armed soldierly looking guard who stands at the gate was kept busy turning his great key in the iron-barred door. The correspondents were ubiquitous and swarmed every where. Kemmler, who is t present the object of interest in the entire conntry, spends his time scratching his name on cards, and adding, as if nobody would know it unless he did so, "Anurn, N. Y.," and the date. It is said thatthe prisoneris begin ning to feel the strain. He known per ectly well that his time is up and he knows he is only waiting the warden's pleasure. He is becoming quite nervous and acts strangely. He looked out of the barred window a long while after he had eaten his brealfast, and when he turned way he sighed deeply; he might never see the sun shining again. It looked so pleasant outside, with the grass taking nabright green and the resbudding in the spring air, and the birds flying here and there, that life must seem very sweet to that ignorant man who is waitting for a death of which he knows nothing andwhich he does not understand. He has been told it will come painlessly, but surely. He is not so confident, so cheerful as he has been and unless the warden works qunickl there may be a scene in the death cham ber when the man is about to begiven over to the grasp of the big armed chair nd shocked into eternity. WILL PROBABLY ARBITRATE. A Prospeet eor the Settlement of the Clasano Carpenters' Strike. I CHIcAGO, May l.-There is now prospect that the carpenters' strike will soon be settled. The arbitration comrn. mittee of the Carpenters' council and the Boss Carpenters' association, to gether with four of the Citizens' ooam Smitte, met at the Iroquois club room, The situation was thoroughly reviewed and the quetions at issue discussed. At the clow af the conference the two som mittees most interested decided that all existing differenrcs could be easily set tied by arbitration, and agreed to ree ommend such a plan of settlement to 1their respective organiations. The Car. I penters' council will hold a special ses sion for the purpose of instructing its Sarbitration committee, if arbitration is agreed upon, as it doubtless will be, The new bosses' association has all along been willing to arbitrate.

WASHINOTON. April 80.-The United States supreme court has rendered an opinion adverse to the constitutionality of state laws in prohibition states, pro viding for the seizure of .tquor brought from other states. Such laws, it is held. are interference with interstate com merce. The case in which the decision was made was that of Leisy against Hardin, brought here on appeal from the supreme court of Iowa. Leisy, a beer manufacturer of Peoria, Ills., shipped beer to Keokuk, Iowa, which was seized in the original packages by Hardina state official, as having been sent there in violation of the Iowa law. The supreme court of Iowa held that the law under which this official acted was valid, but the supreme court has reversed that decision. Justices Gray, Harlan and Brewer dieseented from the opinion of the majority o? the court. The opin ion cited a number of cases bearing upon interstate commerce, among others "the license cases," where laws passed by Massachusetts, New Eampsehire and Rhode Island in reference to the sale of spirituous liquors came under review in the court and were sustained, although the members of the court who partici pated in the decisions did not concur in any common ground upon which to rest them, in which Chief Justice Taney is nuoted as holding that spirits and dis tilled liquors are universally admitted to be subjects of ownership and prop erty and therefore subjects of ex change, barter and traffic. like any other commodity in which a right of property exists; that congress. Sits general power toregulate com merc with foreign nations may pre bseete what merchandise sall be ad mitted and what excluded. But, inas much as the laws of congress authorized the importation of ardent spirits, no sate has the right to prohibit their in troduction. After referring to these and other de lisions bearing on state license laws, the court, in its opinion, says: "Thee decisions rest upon the un doubted right of the states of the Union to control their purely internal affairs, in doing which they exercise powers not surrendered to the national government; but whenever the law of the state amounts essentially to a regulation of commerce with foreign nations, or among the states, as it does when it in hibits, directly or indirectly, the re ceipt of an imported commodity or Its disposition before it has ceased to be come an article of trade between one state and another, or another country and this, It comes in conflict with a power which, in this particular, has b-_ exclusively vested in the general gmoveornment, and is therefore void. aThe plaptiffe, citizens of illinois, had the right to import their beer into Iowa andhad a right to sell it, by which act alone it became mingled with the com mon mass of property within the state. Upi to that point of time,in the absence of congressional permission to doso, the state had no power to interfere by seizure, or any other action in prohibi tion of importation and sale by he non residet importer. Articles which con gremrecognioss as subjects of interstate eosnserca, may be controlled by state i la mounting to regulations, while they etain that character; but to con cede a state thepower to exclude such artiol8l tha.ot eoioual permission iz to concede to a maority of the people of a stat represented in the state legis lature, the power to regulate commer cial intercourse between the states" The court also decided the case of Henry Lyng against the people of the state of Michigan involuing the validity of the Michigan law taxing beer in the original packages, manufactured in Wis consin and sold in Michigan. The court denies the power of a state to exclude, directly or indirectly the subjects of in terstante commerce by the imposition of burdens thereon, or regulate such com merce without congressional permission. The same rule, it is held, which applies to the sugar of Louisiana, the cotton of South Carolina, the wines of California and the tobacco of Maryland and Con necticut, applies to all commdities in which a right of traoffic exists, recog nized by the laws of congress, the decis ions of courts and the usages of the com mercial world should apply in this case. The decision of the state court of Mich igan, deciding that Lyng was liable to tax, is in this case reversed. Justiees Gray, Harlaon and Brewer dissented from the opinion of the court on the same grounds stated in the Leisy-Hardin case. No Pay for Property Destroyed. WA~smroTON, May 1.-The house committee on war claims has decided to I report adversely the bill introduced in o the house by Mr. McComas appropriate 'ng $282,500 to reimburse the towns of Frederick, Haggerstown and Middle town, Md., for damages from raids and invasions by Confederate troops during the late war. A bill introduced by Mr. Funston appropriating $892, 80 to re imburse the Stateof Kanae for property I captured or destroyed by the Csnfeder ate forces during the late war also re ceived an adverse report, Anutralian Law Defeated. CoL usota. Ohio, May 1.-One of the last acts of the house before finaliy adjourning was the defeat gf the. senate joint resolution creating a commission to investigate the Australian ballot sys tem, a bll to aopt which paoed through the house, but was postponed tc next January by the senate, although strengly recommended by the governor in his message. The lawhas virtually been rejcted oy the legislature. The Southern Pacific annual report shows a deficit of $M6,472 this year, ttrainet a surplus of $1,879,488 last year. KeetoaLr., BoUTr DAKOTA, GRAPHIC: While the colums of the Graphic are open tI, any and all unobjectionable ad vertise:nents, yet it is quite impossible for us t, speak knowingly of the merits of the various articles of merchandise advertised, Particularly is this true of patent medicines, But there are excep tions occasionally and a noteworthy ex ception is the celebrated Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This now universally known medicine, has been advertised in the Graphic for four or five years, but not until recently had we any personal knowledge of its wonderful efficacy, which has come about through the pre valling influenza and the stubborn cough that heu so often afeaded it. In the writers family this medicine has on sev eral occasions this winter, cured a cough that baffled any and all other remnedles; and the saipber of temliles ti Kimball and vicinity in which this remedy has been used with like effects attests to its value as a specific for coughs and colds of every nature.
