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
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

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,

It is said thatthe prisoneris begin

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

mittee of the Carpenters' council and
the Boss Carpenters' association, to

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. If the present
plans of the two arbitration committeeo
are sanctioned by their organizations
they will meet on Thursday fbr the final
settlement of the strike, and itis prob
able that the greater part of the striking
carpenters will be at work next Mon
day. The Carpenters' and Builders' as

rie Prohibition Law Is an Intererence
wsth Interstate Conmeroe.
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
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

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

been used with like effects attests to its
value as a specific for coughs and colds
