M.mntana. SATURIDAY. FEBIIUARY 21. 1801. WILLIAM THOUNMSEJI .w1ERMAN. len. i. T. Sherman, one of the prominent figuree in American hie tory, passed to the great beyond yeeterday at his reeidence in New York city. His fight against death was a brave one, as might be ex pected of the hero of so many battle fields, but in thie instance he had to succumb. Hie death bed was eur rounded by his family and many re latives and friende, and the nation mourns his lose. William Tecumseh Sherman was the son of Judge Charles B. Sher man and was born in Lancaster. Ohio, Feb. 8. 1820. From the time of his father's death in 1829 he was reared in the family of Hon. Thous. Ewing and in 1836 was appointed a cadet in the U. S. military accademy, graduat ing in July 1840, receiving the com miesion of second lieutenant. In 1858, when he had attained the rank of captain, he resigned from the army and engaged in ihe banking bueiness in San Francisco. In 1857 he removed to Now York in which year the affairs of his firm wore closed, and the fol lowing year he located at Leaven worth. Kats., and engaged in the practic of law. In 1859 he accepted the presidency of the Lonisana State Seminary of Learning and Military academy, remaining at its head until the war broke out. In Jannary, 1861, he wrote to the governor asking to be relieved the moment the state de rernmeu to eeceue, ana mie reques was soon granted. He then returnee to St. Louis and was soon afterward appointed colonel of the Thirteenti infantry. From this time began hi great military career. He led i brigade at the battle of Bull Run ani did perhaps more hard fighting that any general in the civil war. A Shiloh he commanded a division an( according to Gen. Halleck "saved thi day." To follow his career for the next four years would require more space than the Tainusa has at com rnand. He was in the forefront of the great war and one of its most con spicuous heroes. The history of hii famous "march to the sea" is well known as is the prominent part hi took in bringing the war to a close Hle reached Washington with hii conquering followers May 24, 1865 and after a grand review his army was dissolved. In June, 1865 he was appointed to command the military division of Mississippi; was promoted to be Jieutenant general in 1864. On the accession of .ein. Grant to the presidency 1o became general March 4. 1869. He was retired February 8, 1884, having reached the limit of active service allowed by law. On May 1, 1850, lien. Sherman married Ellen, daughter of Thos. Eiwug, who was then secretary of the interior. The union was a happy one and several children survive the general whose wife preceded him to the grave. General Sherman was universally respected by his countrymen on ac count of his unselfish and patriotic devotion to his country as well as for his manly and sterling qualities of head and heart. He will stand in history as one of the greatest military captains of modern times. HIS HA1 THE MONEY. President Hill is a prince in finance when it comes to raising money, says the Anaconda Standard. Better than that, he is a model of good manage ment when it comes to the judicious use of borrowed money in railway construction. He was the promotor of the best road that connects St. Paul with western Montana today, and he asked no government subsidy at that, nor is he trying to add to a subsidy robbery the shameless plunder of miles wide of the public domain on eech side of his road bed. as his rival line has done and is doing The Great Northern road is at this moment the best built, the safest and the best equipped line between the city of Butte and Minneapolis. Its coaches for everyclass of travelers are incomparably the best kept, it" services is the most eatisfactory and its servants the most courteous. This much is frankly admie ted by the traveling pubro. It will be remem bered by all observing people that the impulse given to Butte's present era of property was coincident with the arrival of Mr. Hill's road around the curve at Meaderville on its march into the Silver City. We expect to see the Great North ern continue its line in this section of Montana. We expect to see it extend its tracks from Butte to Anaconda, up the canyon to the great camps near Phillipsbura, over the range to the Bitter Root country, on to Missoula and beyond toward the Flat Head country, perhaps, there to meet the di rect line which Mr. Hill is construct ing from Assiniboine to the Pacific coast. It is betraying no secret to say that the fact that the ronte we have just outlined is not a reality today is in no sense the fault or failure of Mr. Hill. Long ago he realized that the stretch of road from Butte to Ana conda and Missunla opens to railroad builders as tempting a field as the northwest afords. This road will be built and its construction will be wel comed. Yesterday's dispatches announce that Mr. Hill has secured all the funds required for completing his northern line across this state and for continuing it to the coast. That is good news. It is the end of prelim manes conducted by the man who ii at once the boldest and most discern ing railroad builder in this country OUR TRADE WIZH BRAZIL. The subjoined statistics indicate that Secretary Blaine's reciprocity ideas, as applied to Brazil, are in the right line and will do much to in crease the trade of this country with the new South American republic: During the year ending June 80. 1890, we bought from Brazil `59,000,000 worth of its products and sold it $11,000,000 worth of oirs. The diplomatic consular report made to the British parliament In 1889 contains this statement: The United Slates of America takes much over half the coffee export of Bra zil, over half the India-rubber, fully halt the hides and horns, and alout two-fifths of the sugar crop, altogether about hall the entire exports, while the imports into Brazil from the United States barely reach one-seventh oh the total,the remain oer being paid via Europe instead of di rect exports of products. In 1858 there were entered at the port of Rio de Janeiro, not counting goods ad mitted free, $25,000.000 of imports from Great Itritain, $9,000,000 from France. $7,000,000 from Germany, and $4,000,000 from the United States. The trade is now principally with Eu rope. Under the policy of reciprocity the balance of trade as between the Unit ed States and Brazil is likely to be in the former's favor and if recipro cal relations were entered into with other nations this country would be vastly benefitted. Blaine's policy is in favor of freer trade and to that ex tent is a vast improvement on the McKinley idea of high protection duties in the interest of the manufac turers without regard to the welfare of commerce or of the people gener erally. AN OPERA 1IHOU1TR. Is it not time our citizens were tak ing steps towards securing an opera house for Groat Falls? This is one of the urgent necessities of the city and united action may be necessary to secure it. The TIIBUNE believe. that a good hall capable of seating 600 or 700 people would fill the re quirements for two or three years, at which time we would be ready for a $100.000 structure and private or corporate capital to build it would be forthcoming. When we have attained a population of 90,000, capital will be quite willing to seek investment in a grand opera house, but meantime some provision must be made to meet this urgent want. Why not organize a company and build a $10,000 hall? We believe it would be a good investment, for such a hall is needed not only for theatrical companies but for political meetings, balls and many other pur poses. Property purchased now with in the business limit would increase in value so rapidly that the company in two or three years would find their stock quoted way above par. A one story building of sufficient size would answer the purpose and serve Great Falls as an opera house for two or three years. We hope that some of our enterprising citizens will take the matter in hand and see to it that the city is not much longer without such a place of amusement UNoza recent date R. G. Dun & Co. report as follows as to the condition of trade: Though at a higher level of pnces, business continues to exceed last year's on the whole, and is in character more healthy and conservative than usual. With less speculative excitement, with a senseof uncertainty making buyers cautious in nearly all lines, so that pur chasers ape closely confining to actual demand for consumption, the volume of business transacted is nevertheless much t greater than a year ago in some of the most important branches, and in scarcely any is there material decrease. Money markets are everywhere easy, in part I because speculative liquidations and the marketing of crops have liberated large sums of money for which there is no Immediate use, and the volume of cur t rency in :irculatlon therefore decreased nearly $4,000,000 in January. But it is noteworthy that while outstandleg legal tender, bank notes, silver certificates, silver notes and silver coin all decreased, there were over $11,000,000 more gold certificates taken out and held in circu I latiun. Tita Pioneer Press says: There is not likely to be a particle of truth in the story telegraphed from Chicago that one of the objects of President Hill's visit to London is to secure control of the Chi cago, St. Paul and Kansas City road, and that be has secured such control. Mr. A. B. btickney, who ought to know if any such movement is on foot, knows nothing ..bout it. To say the least, it is highly improbable that Mr. Hill has any idea of acquiring this or any other Chicago con nection. If so, he must have very recent ly changed his views as to the expediency of such a measure, for he has heretofore maintained that it was much to the ad vantage of the Great Northern to hold an udependent position with respect to all the Chicago roads which connect with it here. "DExOcacy opposed to free silver" is the caption of an article in the Leader, in which Mr. Cleveland's views on this sub ject are set forth. We did not know be fore that Grover Cleveland is the "democ rac)." If the Leader would learn the ipinion of the democracy on this subject let it study the votes of the democrats In the natiousl senate and house of repre sentatives on the free-coinage l Ill. The democracy is practically a unit In favor of free silver, and Mr. Cleveland's views do not change thesituation in the least. HaNRY WArraitmoN's letter to Gover nor Hill urging him to accept the sena torship and withdraw from the presiden tlal race is creating a little breeze in the political world. Gov. Hill say he never received the epistle and is not very well pleased with its "impudent tone." Mr. Watterson avers that the letter was written wttb the best and kindliest in tentions and that the goveri.or should receive it in that light only. The TRIBUNE published the essential part of the letter a few days ago. THE census office eas Issued a bulletia in regard to changes in the fioatinq equipment on the great lakes since 1886 In 1886 the net tonnage of the vessel used for transportation on the great lakei was 684,658; in 1800 it had reached 826, 860, an increase of 191.780 toes. The estimated value of these vessels in 1884 was $80,597,450 and In 1890 the aggre gate valuation was $58,198,500, an Increase compared with 1886 of P97,458,150. Tue TIanrav appears to day In a nes and enlarged form, a change made neces sary by the growth of our city and the increasing demands upon the advertisini columns of the paper. The Teisuxa is the only paper in northern Montana that publishes the Associated Press re, ports and it will always be found abreast of the times and at the front of the Great Falls procession. TiHe dinning car service of the Great Northern railroad as getting execrable, Parties compelled to travel over this line should take their lunch baskets with them.-Leader. What is the matter with the Leader, anyhow ! The reneral verdict of the traveling public is that the Great North em dining car service Is excellent. II must be still a question of transportation with our esteemed contemporary. HARRY COMr.y, speaker of the house of representatives, who has been dangerous ly ill for several days, is convalescent, but is not yet able to sit up or receive his friends. It is doubtful if he will be able to occupy the speaker's chairthis session. IF it Is true that Ex-President Cleve land has written a letter in opposition to the unlimited coinage of silver, he has made the second mistake of his life. Free coinage will be the widest plank to the next national democratic platform. HAtRY E. HouasAx, postmaster of Mis souls, has been found to be short in his accounts and the office has been turned over to a representative of his bondsmen. The amount of the deficiency is not yet known. Tai matter of the location of the pub lic.institutions must be postponed until the next session it it as hoped to enact the essential laws at this one. The sixty lays are fast drawing to a close. We are glad to note that one bill has reached the governor and received his signature. It is house bill 10, providing for the stablishment of a state board of examinees.
