inferences from them. They form, in
the first place, a test asto the state of the
crops. The fact that No. I hard wheat
is selling for $1.06 on the track in Min
neapolis indicates that the Minnesota and
Dakota crops fall short of the large pro

THEt British investments in Minneapo
lis and elsewhere are a doubtful blessing.
In that city they have caused much mis
giving. One of their evil effects has
been to cause American speculators to
flock to London where they are actually
giving options on properties without the
owners' consent. Before we import more
foreign capital we ought to use up
what we have at home. There is plenty
on hand. The only difference is that
the British are more venturesome than
our own moneyed men. It was not so
formerly. Then American enterprise
was felt throughout the world, and our
country made astounding progress In
railroads, mines and manufactures with

TuE reports of the New York Central
resemble those of the Burlington when
that was in progress. Both officers and
switchmen intend to tell the truth,but
they are misled by the reports which
they receive. It is a matter of alarm
that a strike should take place on a road
so well-managed and prosperous as the
New York Central. It is admitted on
both sides that it is not a matter of wages.
The switchmen complain that men were
discharged because thay were Knights of
Labor. No denial has come from the
road. The pubilc woild like to receive
full explanations from each side.

Under the head of "Great Northern
Plans," the Helena Independent of yes
terday had an article in which it says
that "the Anaconda, Bitter Root and
Western project has been in no wise
abandoned. Before another twelve
months rolls around, Col. Broadwater's
Montana Central railroad will be running
into Anaconda." This coast extension is
irrespective of the coast extension from
The article includes the following in
teresting statement:
Is seems to be a pretty well established
fact that the day is not far distant when a
large proportion of the Anaconda com
pany's reduction and refining will be lo
cated at Great Falls. This is not the first
time this has beep referred to. Some
months ago John t. Toole, in an inter
view with an Independent reporter slid
the company had been tendered a propo
sition to avail itself of the unlimited
water power and other cheap facilities
offered at G(reat Falls for profitable ore
reduction. It was also stated by the gen
tleman that the Three Forks proposition
did not commend itself to the favorable
consideration of the Anaconda company's
engineers, as a requisite water force
could not be maintained, or worrds to that
effect. It has also been mentioned since,
and by no less an authority thanl the Ana
conda Standard, that the Three Forks
land, said to have been Ipurchased for
the Anaconda company, would be a very
desirable locality for raising fine cat
tie and the establishment of a creamery.
From a careful review of the situation
it will bie readily observed that Great
Falls offers superior advantages as an
ore reducing and refining center, a fact
which has been appreciated by the Bos
ton 5& Montana company, which is now
establishing a plant of immense propor
tions and to which, this time next year,
the Montana Central railway will be
hauling daily from Butte at least 1,000
tons of ore, and in two years' time 2,5100
tons per day, or an amount equal to the
Anaconda company's present output.
First and foremost, the chief factor in
Great Falls' destiny as an ore reducing
center is its cheap and unlimited natural
water power; another important item is
that, there fuel can be obtained at a cost
just about half what the Butte compan
ies are now, and will continue to pay for
it. It is understood from a reliable
source that the Anaconda company pays
from $6 to $7 per ton for its Rock
Springs coal, whereas an equally good
article will be laid down to Great Falls
for just half the money-not the Sand
Coulee coal, but that from Lethbridge,
via the new narrow gauge line. the
Great Falls & Canada. This is said to be
a superior coal for smelting purposes,
while the Sand Coulee screenings are
said to have no equal for generating
steam. These are the important factors
which prompted the assumption that the
Anaconda company will in the near fu-.
tore look toward Great Falls as the one
profitably refining and iyanufactnring
the red metal. Itispretty d.rtain. there
fore, that the Montana Ce4tral railway
will be extended to Anaconda in the near
future, and the consequent establishing

It has also been stated, and by one in a
position to know what he is talking about,
that the main machine and car shops of
the Great Northern will be built at Great
Falls. This alone gives further color to
the statement that it is the intention of
President Hill to build his road through
the inter-mountain region from Butte
westward to and across the Bitter Root
r the suspension of silver coinage; lihe was
a democrat; therefore the party is op
t posed to silver. This is the logic the
5 Inter Mountain uses. We sould like
the Inter Mountain to demonstrate how
t such a declaration commits the demo
critic party to Ihostility to silver. If it
proceeded from President Harrison we
would not expect to make the republican
r party responsible for it. The democratic
record on silver since the passing of the
Bland bill by a democratic house is clear
and indisputable. It was emphasized in
the recent contest when Carter had to
vote at times with the democrats to im
prove his silver record. It would be
more public spirited and politic for a
Butte paper to keep the republicans up
to the mark by giving the democrats due
credit for their splendid service in the
cause of silver.
CARDINAL NEWMAN, whose death is

SENATOR Teller of Colorado, Is a true
friend of silver. The bill which he has
brought in is therefore well lonspired.
But no new silver bill has any chance at
this late hour, esperially as that arch
enemy of silver, Speaker Reed is boss in
the house. The friends of the silver in
dustry should now concentrate their ef
forts on making Secretary Windom carry
out the law fully and honestly.

Commercial treties have become com
mon among civilized nations. The mod
ern form is about 40 years old. Treaties
ralled commercial were known before
that time, but none of them approached
in importance the Anglo-French treaty
of 1860. The French had wines, brandy,
nilks and fancy goods to sell, Int some of
these articles paid heavy duties in Eng
land. France excluded most British pro
ducts or subjected them to high duties.
Napoleon Ill and the British ministers
iaw that the two countries might deal with
cach other on better terms. Accordingly
they framed the treaty of 1860, which
-toured low duties for French wines and
other products in England and admitted
irltish goods into France on easy terms.
this treaty gave a powerful impulse to
Anglo-French trade. It received cordial
u pport from many French protectionists,
who rejoiced that a wide market had
been opened for their products-a mar
ket which no British minister could close
The United States had demonstrated
the utility of such treaties by the reci
procity treaty with Canada, which was
in force from about 1846 until it was ab
rogated on account of the altered rela
tions which our civil war entailed.
Mr. Blaine who with all his partisan
ship is a statesman saw that reciprocity
was the only way by which we could
open the markets of America to our
goods. Accordingly he asked McKinley
to retain the duty on sugar until he could
negotiate with the countries engaged in
its production. But McKinley had two
objects to serve. One was to make a
striking reduction as an offset to the in
creased duties which he needlessly im
posed. The other was to abolish in part
the sugar duties so as to compel congress
to raise revenue by heavy duties on man
ufactures. Accordingly he trelted Illaine's
scheme with scorn. luit the democrats
and some independent republicans lhave
taken it up and endorsed it at their con
ventions. Montan ni m follow suit, for
she is closely interested in reciprocity
with Canada, part of whose vast territory
is linked commercially with Great Falls.

form with a list of grievances that the
people should study. This platform,
which was carefully prepared by ex-Sen
ator Bayard, arraigns the republican ad
ministration and congress for reckless
expenditure; denounces the action of the
republican majority in congress in the
adoption of rules designed to cripple the
essential powers of self-government and
pave the way for arbitrary legislation;
and condemns the substitution for the
high discretion of the house of the will
and autocratic power of one man. It pro
tests against the force bills; declares
the enactment of a measure so atro
cious would deprive the state of local
self government, and that the people of
Delaware indignantly resent the menace
and insult of the bayinet at the polls. It
denounces the McKinley tariff bill, which
increases taxation, while it lessens reve
nue, strangles commerce, enhances the
cost of living and production, obstructs
enterprises of ship building and employ
ment of mechanics and navigators, and
piles new burdens on agriculture with
out obtaining for the farmer a wider
market for a single product.
IN a review of the west side republican
candidates in which Col. Searles knocks
over Mantle, Bray, Rickards and White
(of Dillon) T. H. Campbell and Dr.
Leavitt, the Benton journalist says: "Col.
Couch is a gentleman whohas large min
ing interests in Butte and property inter
ests on the east side which demand his
attention. He is not yet ripe as a candi
date for congressional honors, but he is a
mighty power in Silver Bow county poll
tics and that power will not be directed
in favor of Mantle or his friends and
they know it. The colonel would not
receive the united support of his party
on the west side. He will not be a can
didate to succeed Carter." Captain
Couch is not a candidate, but if he were
we opine that he would have stronger
support on the west side than any other
republicans who are on that range.
Tasc country at large would approve of
the final removal of the remains of Gen
eral Grant to Arlington where so many
of his comrades repose, Napoleon said in
his will: "I would repose on the banks
of the Seine among the French people
whom I loved so well." It might be as.
sumed that Grant would alsohave chosen
for his tomb the place where Sheridan
and 16,000 veterans are laid. There was
something repugnant to good taste In
burying Grant in n public park, remote
from any cathedral or cemetery. The

The assurance recently given of the
early completion of the Belt Mountain
branch to this camp has infused renewed
vigor into every mining artery. Prior to
the reception of the news, which was
fully confirmed by the Hon. ParlsGibson
on his recent visit here, there was not on
idle man in the camp. Since then, how
ever, not only every prospect has been
manned, but properties in this vicinity
have come into active request, mine
seekers have become plentiful and the
genius of improvement seems to have
taken the reins.
