THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE,
SATURDAY. JUNE 27. l8s1. A MOUNTAIN OF IRON. The people of northern Montana are lbecoming accustomed to surprises and it is questionable whether the discovery of a veritable "brass" or "(;erman silver" mine would startle them out of their usual evenness of temper. The finding an:d development of inmlense coal fields; the discovering and unearthing of vast treasures of wealth in the Neihart and Barker districts; the opening up of a marble quarry four miles long by three fourths of a mile wide, anti the well known mining possibilities of the Sweet 4crass hills and the Bear Paw and Little IRocky mountains have all united in pre paring the people of this favored section for any report which may he made in re gard to metal discoveries. Therefore the rport that Mr. Ralston, of Choteau, had discovered a mountain of iron near that llace was receivel as a matter of course; no one disputing it and every one be lieving that the limit of the mineral dis coveries in Northern Montana has not yet been reached. According to the Montanian this iron ine,. or rather mountain of iron, con tains an excellent quality of ore, one old iron-miner declaring it was "the largest and richest deosgit he had ever seen in his travels." Hundreds of locations L.ave been madh( and about all the visi ,le ore has been tiled ulmn. It is a great mine without doubt- probably the great est iron depolsit in the world. But it is nsothing more than what was expected by ti.ise who have intelligently estimated t:. magnificent resourees of northern M1ointana. It is only in harmony with ti.e immense precious ore deposits; the 1alparalleled marble quarry aind the in ti ite water power of this great northern coutr-v.

Ti: sensitive, dudish ignoramus who is daily engaged in a catch-as-catch-can contest with the English language and clear-cut, cold facts through the columns of the Leader. breaks loose from goodx manners and calls the editorial writer on this journal "the grammatical fossil of the T'rntcst:." Now this isn't nice, nor is it true. It isn't nice because it is not journalistic to separate the editor from Lis paper and personally attack him. It isn't true, because there is no such thing as a "grammatical fossil." Now just one word to the second assistant chamber n.aid of a third class livery stable, who has accidentally found her way to the Leader tripod. ('ive a paper "tits" when you feel like it, but never, no i.iver, mention the name or refer to the c-litor in anger. It isn't good form. T'lii: San Francisco Examiner gives a little bit of history in the following which may have escaped the memory of whalirers of (artield who are still in the rlpublican party: "*Mr. McKinley re i.arked in his speech before the Colum bus convention that his party followed li., tarlif teaching of Washington, and I lamilton, and ('ly. and Webster. and Lincoln, and G;artield, while the democ l avy pursued the fallacies of Cobden and !:right and Calhoun.

Mr. Bardsley is a shining light of tLo g. o. p. of that city. anil therefore those republican journals which never permit a defaulting demo crat to escape free advertising, and in variably connect his politics with his crime, are as silent as the dead Cmesars c:,ncerning the politics of the great swindler of the Quaker City. Ti,; question as to the best material with which to pave the main street of Helena is now supplanted by the ques tion concerning th1e proper draft of boats to be built to navigate it. THE Anaconda is sold again, and with it everyone who ibelieves the yarn. THE AFTERMATH. The Prince of Wales is in a dilemma and, as usual, there Is a woman in the case, the woman being Lady Brooke, who, it is said, is the handsomest female in England. The whole matter, how ever, grew out of the baccarat scandal. It appears that previous to that famous meeting at Tranby Croft the prince had accepted an invitation to spend Doncas ter week at the country seat of the Duke of Portland. It further appears that when the list of guests whom the prince desired to meet him there was returned to him for inspection, it was discovered that the blue pencil had been drawn across the name of Lady Brooke. This was the work of the young Duchess of Portland, who notified the prince that the lady could not be received by her. Wales was angered, and instead of going to the country seat of the Duke of Port land he hurried off to Tranby Croft, where Lady Brooke was received. The world knows what followed; that bac carat play; Cumming's cheating; the matter being confided to Lady Brooke by the prince; the divulging of the story by her, it reaching the ears of Sir Will iam Cumming; his suit for slander; the acquittal of the defendants; his mar riage; his withdrawal from the London clubs and his expulsion from the British army service. With this brief explanation we come to the prince's dilemma which is only and aftermath of the baccarat scandal. Lord Brooke, the husband of the lady in question, is the son of the Earl of War wick and inherits all the pride and love of caste of that proud, aristocratic family. His wife's intimacy with the prince, which doubtless was purely platonic, was not favorably regarded by the high strung lord but to prevent scandal he remained silent although the coolness, if not actual aversion existing between theml was a imatter of coimmon report. nut after the bIaccrat scandal and the very near escape of Lady Brooke in be ing mixed up in it, his lordship became heartily disgusted with the conduct of his wife and now divorce proceedings are in order on thet part of the husband. It is said lie has a hatch of the prince's letters written to Lady iBretke. which in the language of the, dispatches "call for snie clear detinition of the line between platonic affection andi the seventh co)in miandment." Should Lord Brooke push the matter I the princet will, without doubt, be made I co-reslndent in the divorce suit and t royalty be made to quake again from the !!rown to the foItstool. .Just at present lie is in an awkward dilenmma. Ilow he will get out of it is one of those things I past tinding out at this particular juncture. TilE: new tarriff on tin plate will go in to elfect July 1st. After that date 'he duty on tin plate will be raised from one cent a pound to 2.2 cents per pound. In view of this fact it becomes pertinent to inquire where those American tin plate manufacturers are who would be in a position to supply practically the home demand for the article after the above date. This country imports an nually 300,000 tons of tin plate from Wales, the value of which is not far from $',.000,000. That seven tons shipped from Temescal to San Francisco the other day, the first mined in the country, is the nearest approach to furnishing our own tin for domestic purposes yet made. These facts and figures may help some one to answer the question: Where are those manufacturers which are to supply this country with tin plate after July 1, 1891? Echo answers: Where! Accoanmxu to reports of American consuls in France the people of that country are not exciting themselves to an alarming extent over the Chicago world's fair project. They are at pres ent more particularly engaged in watch ing the effects of the McKinley tariff upon French exportations to the United States, and upon French products gen erally, than in preparing for an exhi bition of French manufactures and French productions at Chicago which our hostile tariff may shut out. The McKiuley tariff bids fair to kill the Chi cago world's exposition. 1.N the death of lion. Joseph E. Mc Donald. the people of the United States lose, one of its brightest intellects and most brilliant statesmen, while the state of Indiana loses its most popular and most prominent public man He was once a power in the democratic party of his state and nation, but the whirligig of time brought changes which relegated him to private life which he adorned as well as enjoyed. Peace to his ashes! T'mio. Buffalo Express is responsible for the statement that "'The horrible discov ery has been made that the cards used by the prince of Wales at the Marlbor ough club are made in New York, near the Bowery. To cap the climax the fur ther fact has been unearthed that the identical chips which Wales carries with him, and which figured at Tranby Croft, were manufactured near Union square in New York. What will Anglomaniacs say to this?" IT MAY Ihe a little premature to maake the remark, but while we are talking about tin the T'1urx.. will say that the greatest tin mine on the face of the earth will be discovered within easy pnd convenient distance to (ireat Falls. This tip is given for the benefit of those who know how to take advantage of it. TROUBLE IN CHOTEAU CO. Some time last winter the county com missloners of Choteau county employed one Bernard Brown, a resident of Hel ena, to examine the books of the officers of Choteau county and report their :con dition, and the financial condition of the county at a subsequent meeting of the board. It seems the records do not show that the commissioners entered in to any written or verbal contract with Mr. Brown to do the work, nor is there anything in the records to show what he was to receive for his labor. But he claimed he experted the books and made out a report of their condition, which he tiled with the county recorder. The TuIIw'r: does not profess to know anything about the correctness or value of Mr. Bernard Brown's report, or whether he went over the books of all the county officers or only of twoof them as is charged. But as a faithful chron icler of the history of this now very in teresting and probably famous case, it will simply state the facts as it finds them. At the June meeting of the board of commissioners of that county Mr. Bernard Brown's billof $1,100.00 was taken up and allowed, Mr. Gray, one of the commissioners, voting against the acceptance of the report and the allow ance of the bill and Messrs. Dunne and Patterson voting yes on both propo sitions. Two or three days ago a notice and bond in appeal were filed with the county clerk, A. E. Rogers, appealing from the decision of the board in allowing Brown's 81,100 bill. It is claimed, we understand, that Brown's report is valueless; that in fact it is no report at all: that the books otf only two of the county officers were examined, and that there were nearly 1(i) errors in facts and computations in his expertings. There are other matters urged by the appellants which will be noted when the matter comnies before the district c.ourt for adjudication. Theecase is a very important one to every county in the state. inasmuch as its final decis ion will determotine the latitude comnlis sioners may enjoy in transacting the business of their respective counties. AMllEIl('.1 TIN aMINES. It is reported, and it maiy I, taken for granted that tin ore exists in the black Hills. It may also be said with iquite as much truth that tin ore exists in Mon tuna. It is also a well known fact that a tin mine was discovered at T.meseal, San Bernardino county. California, as early as 1800. Tin ore, in very small quantities, has been found elsewhere in the country, but the question which con cerns the people of the United States is not whether tin ore has been discovered in this place or in that place, but wheth er it has been found in paying quanti ties: that is, whether the mines are known to be rich enough to pay for the mining and reduction of the ore. The history of the Black Hills tin mines is too well known to inspire any confidence in their being successfully worked for the tin which may be in them and the report contained in the Taialc.I's yes terday morning's dispatches concerning the intention of a certain syndicate hav ing bought reduction machinery in Chi cago for the purpose of making tin at once at those so-called mines should be taken with many grains of salt. The outlook, however, is somewhat more encouraging at the Temescal mines The first furnace was put in operation at these mines about three months ago, and the first shipment of seven tons of the metal was recently made to San Fran cisco. This at the rate of twenty-eight tons a year. an amount which, it will be conceded, cuts no figure in the sum total of the block tin annually used in the United States. But it is a starter and may lead to more important results, though every candid man will confess that the poverty of the shipment and the outlook for any material increase do not justify the continuance of the Mc Kinley duty upon tin. It is not of this, however, the Tlmla'Ne.: desires to speak at this time. But it may be said that the booiners of the tin tariff are more modest in their predictions of the possi bilities of American tin mines than they were when the tin schedule was being (de bated during the last congress. It is a source of gratification to know that an American mine is actually producing tin and putting it upon the market. One may not become hilariously proud over the amount produced, but he can feel a pardonable pride in the fact that it can be produced at all, and that the time may conme when enough of the metal will he mined to tin the free cups chained at wayside watering places throughout the country. "llnw, srslE.' ir's, one of the best authori ties on trade, finance, and public econo my, says: "We know of no responsible journal or person who claims today that American tin-plate factories are sup plying the American demand for tin plates, either of American rolled plates dipped in American tin, of American plates dipped in imported tin, or of for eign tin plates redipped in either Ameri can or foreign tin. If any such claims are being made it would be of interest to know who in making them." It is well enough to keep these facts before the people. Ma. l'AINtii.r. AND Mmin. O'HS.i:A will please retire to a back seat and make room for the Prince, of Wales and Lady Brooke. T'ley have already become back numbers in this exceedingly fast age. THE WOOL MARKET EAST. The River Press of recent date has a very pointed article under the above headline. After explaining that it writes of the wool market east because there is no wool market out west it says: Just think of it? Montana, with a clip of probably 15,000,000 pounds to dis pose of this year, which should bring to our wool-growers the snug sum of rl,000, 000, can not find a buyer for even asmall portion of her superior wool product. It is a class of wool that if we believe the reports of Boston commission men is very desirable and should and probably may meet with ready sale when it gets into the eastern markets. And yet, strange to say, with the protecting iegis of the mighty McKinley bill over andl all about them, no eastern wool-dealer has "sand enough" to come into the Montana mar ket and make a decent bid for her wool based upon even the present low prices which prevail east. The T'rlB#IeNE has yet to see the repub lican paperw'hich gives a sensible rea son for this condition of the wool mar ket. Their talk about a stringent money market superinduced by the threatened failure of the great English house of Baring Bros., having such a depressing effect upon the wool industry lacks the element of truth or even sincerity. The last year's eclipse of the sun or moon had quite as much to do with it as the par tial collapse of the Barings. An easier explanation is thus made. American manufacturers of wool can not profitably ship one yard of woolens outside of the country. As soon as they attempt it they come in direct compe tition with manufactured woolens from free wool countri-s and they are shut out. In order to manufacture such woolens as will find a ready sale abroad, they must use a certain amount of for eign grown wool in the fabric. The duty on these wools ranges all the way from eleven cents upward. Manufacturers in free wsHd countries pay no duty and hence can undersell Amierican manufac turers. The result is American nmanu factured woolens must Is sold and con sumned at home or remain in seclusion in warehouses or upon retailers' shelves. If they are not sold umanufecturers refrain from stocking up with the raw material. And that is what is now the matter. There is a large surplus of manufactured woolens ulamn the American markets. They cannot be exported. They are waiting for custoimers and mnanufacturers will not buy raw woolIs until there is ii market for their goods. This is plain to be seen, and as long as the McKinley tariff be permitted to shut American Imanufactured woolens in the country just so long will western wool growers find no western wool market. Keep those facts before the people. STICK TO FACT'S. The River Press estimates the average price of Montana fleece this year at eigh teen cents before shipment. When the Mills bill hung like a shadow over the land, forcing down prices and threaten ing destruction to the entire sheep in dustry of the west, fourteen cents was considered a high price and Oregon and Washington wool went begging at twelve cents.--Inter Mountain. Avast there, Col. Read! Stick to facts if they knock the McKinley wool sched ule higher than Gilroy's kite. The facts are these: "When the Mills bill hung like a shadow over the land," wool brought more in Montana than it has any time since. The ruling price for wool at Fort Benton, Great Falls and Billings at that time was twenty-one cents, extra clips being sold two or three points higher. Today, with the McKin ley bill hanging like the pall of death over the wool industry of the land, there is no market for wool in Montana at any price. Stick to facts, Col. Iead, stick to facts! THI: American Sugar Refining com pany known as the great sugar trust for whose benefit the McKinley sugar schedule was arrangedl-have recently declared a semiannual dividend of :13 per cent on the preferred and 4 per cent on the cimmon shares of the company. As stockholders hold $'2,000,000 of pre ferred and $2.i,000,000 common stock the annual dividends they receive amount to +l3,750,000. This sum represents only a part of the profits of this great sugar trust which profits are paid by the con sumers of the article. It is well enough to keep these little matters before the people. M.:IEas. SuIrII. AN AND Sa..INs have not yet come to a definite understanding in regard to the time and conditions of their joint debate. Mr. SHllivan's friends have put up 81,00) forfeit, which the friends of Mr. Slavin, it is stated, have not covered. Mr. Slavin thinks Mr. Hul livan's challenge is an advertising dodge to help out the latter in his Australian tour. Mr. Sullivan's opinion about that is not given. This seems to be the status of the Sullivan-Slavin matter. T.m republican newspapers of th., country having elected McKinley gov ernor of Ohio, the people of that state can now attend to their knitting and let politics alone until next year. Ir In said that the Butte Miner pub lished a 24-page paper last Sunday morning, but the TatuuN l was not for tunate enough to obtain a copy. From some hard-to-be-explained cause, notone in ten of the Miner's Sunday morning issues reaches this office. TnaE L.ader says - well no matter what it says. If the Taha,,: doesn't repeat it no one besides its three or four de luded subscribers will ever know what the Leader has to say. TIMBER ON PUBLIC LANDS. Thereis not a resident,in northern Mon tana, and as to that matter none in the state, who is not more or less affected by Land Commissioner Carter's new circu lar issued by the general land office at Washington governing the use of timber upon the public domain. It is of much importance to all who make timber cut ting a business and applies equally to small as well as to the large cut ters. For this reason the TaRBc-E. pro. poses to give a liberal synopsis of the timber law of March 3rd last to the end that its readers may learn just what their rights are upon the timber lands of the government. The act, as far as it relates to timber cutting on public lands, applies only to Montana, the two Dako tas, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, L~tah and Alaska. The right of railroad companies to cut timber for construction purposes from public lands contiguous to the line of their roads is in no way abridged. They have enjoyed that right and enjoy it under the new law. A previous act au thorizing the cutting of timber for build ing, agricultural, mining and other domestic purposes from the public lands known to be nilneral, and subject to en try only as mineral lands still holds good and remains in force subject only to such rules and regulations as may be prescrib ed thereunder by the secretary of the interior. The following section is a very important one and we give it entire that timber cutters may determine for them selves the full measure of their responsi bility in the premises: Sec. 4. Settlers upon the public lands, miners, farmers, and other xmna fide residents in either of the states, district, or territory named in this act, who have not a suffi cient supply of timber on their own claims or lands for firewood, fencing, or building purplses, or for necessary use in developing the mineral and other nat ural resources of the lands owned or oc cupied by them, are permitted to procure timnber from the public landls strictly for the purposes enumerated in this section, but not for sale or dis posal or use on other lands or by other persons; but this section shall not be construed to give the right to cut timber on any appropriated or reserved public lands; and the secretary of the interior reserves the right to proscribe such fur ther restrictions as he may, at any time, deem necessary, or to revoke the permis sion granted hereby, in any case or cases wherein he has information that persons are abusing the conceded privileges, or where it is necessary to the public good. A strict interpretation of this section would seemn to imply that any man who wants a few cords of wood, or lumber for building purposes must cut the timber himself that he cannot purchase it from another who has cut it from the public domain. But as such an interpretation would work a very great hardship to thousands of men anti their families who are engaged in business growing out of mining, farming, stockraising, etc., and therefore cannot personally go to the woods and fell such trees as they desire, it must be assumed that a broader con struction of the section is admissible. However, another section opens the way to the acquirement of such timber prod ucts as enter into the every day business of life. While the old timber law is mandatory and while its provisions may be enforced as they were during the days of Carl Schurz and Sparks, the new law. as has been intimated, provides for tim ber cutting for all purposes, Tnere is a great deal of red tape to be unwound to get at the timber but it is probably the best eastern law givers could do for the people of the west. The new law provides that persons, firms, or corporations residing in the states named above may procure permis sion to cut timber upon the public do main for purposes of sale or traffic or to manufacture it into lumber or any other timber product as an article of merchan dise by making an application, in wri ting, to the secretary of the interior, des ignating the lands upon which they wish to cut such timber by section, township, and range, if surveyed, or if unsurveyed by designating them by natural bound aries and estimating the number of acres therein. They must also state what kind or kinds of trees they want and about the amount of timber wanted. The application must be sworn to and witnessed by at least four reliable and responsible citizens who reside in the locality of the land described. 'lhen if it appears to the secretary of the interior that the granting of the application will not be detrimental to the public inter eats or infringe upon the rights and priv ileges of the settlers of the locality the application will Ibe complied with. The application must be published once a week for three consecutive weeks in a paper of general circulation in the state, and it must also be published for the same length of t-me in a newspaper published in the county in which such lands are situated. Sawmill owners, lumber dealers and others, who in any manner cause or procure timber to be cut or removed from any public lands in violation of these provisions shall be lia ble to prosecution for trespass and to civil suits for the value of the timber so cut. With this law upon the statute books it now stands every one in hand to look out for his summer's kindlings and winter's firwoodl, for the special timber agents will now be abrcaml in the land. IowA will have four candideetes for governor in the field this year. If Gov ernor lioles be not returned to the executive chair of the state then all the political signs will fail in their realiva tion. LUCKY TOM CARTZIg There is an old chestnut about men being born to greatness and having greatness thrust upon Lucky Tom Carter belongs to the class. But it may be said right that Mr. Carter has richly earned greatness which has been thrust i him. A less pushing man may caped the greatness, but be it Thomas Il something of a pushe in an offensive way-but a smooth ,nsinuating pusher, who "gets with both feet and hands befon t knows it. When he first ran for t to congress he was considered-in ing parlance-a rank outsider. got there-not by "a scratch," but overwhelming majority, as surp him as it was astonishing to his enemies. And that majority was b about by a combination of forces circumstances of which he was i and had no hand in shaping. It luck-a fortuitous, unlooked-for ev Again he ran for congress and - good fortune did not desert hirm defeated an undefeated candidate, r star was still in the ascendent. . he came before the people, and asth friends claimed he would be elected the ballots showed that an untried had carried off the election and honors. "Carter's luck has d him," cried his friends, "He has plt out his string." Nothing was f from the truth. Paradoxical as it - appear, in his defeat he gained . greatest victory. It was the cul tion of his luck. It made him seent of the national republican commi and land commissioner of the int department. Lucky Tom Carter! this is not all that his good fortune have in store for him. According to: Washington correspondent of the Mit I apolis Journal, Thomas proposes to , plement his good fortune with a lit scheming. The scheme is developedi the following: The interesting phase of the situate in Montana is the fact that Land Ct missioner Carter and Colonel HStnde have agreed to send a Harrison dletel tion to the next national republican cv vention. Carter will be able to do tt., if any man can. And the influence i. has in the state may be strong enough secure a Harrison delegation even thou - Mr. Blaine should be a candidat Linked with the selection of the larr son delegation is the re-election of sae ders. The legislature elected in I8. . Ci. choose Mr. Sanders' successor. He is candidate for re-election. If the repui lieans secure a majority in the lerti k ture he will be returned. And now as to Carter. It is stated ti'! Mr. Carter is to secure a nice prize if i. succeeds in giving Harrison Mont;canac, delegation. This promise is saicd to ha.r been gi ven him when the tender of tic lcaci office commissionership was made ili,. If Harrison is re-elected Mr. Carter I, t be made secretary of the interior. l'i,.rte is no doubt that this is a bargain t.! has been made by Mr. Harrison aaoi the Montana renublicans. Montana republicans. Then Carter is to have another strir. to his bow later on. When the terr of Mr. Power expires, Mr. Carter, it he loses none of his present prestie,. will go to the United States seniate. There is no doubt about this either. This is a nice arrangement. But ther, are a couple of drawbacks which wilt knock it out. In the first place Harrison. will never be re-elected president of tIh United States, and in the second lilacs Carter has taken an unlucky man in the scheme. Sanders is a hoodoo of the tirst magnitude--and would prove an "ol man of the sea" on Carter's back. Now if Carter would shake Sanders-drip him out of the arrangement, he might.. with his never failing luck attain eonu of the ends of his ambition. But with hinm Carter is gone. By the way, what do our republican friends think of the arrangement? What is to become ,fI Power if Carter's scheme work? How will the party get along without his in spiring cry? "We've got 'em." The re are important questions. Lucky Tomu Carter may be tempting fortune. She has been very kind to Tom Power ani may not be quite ready to shake hinmt for Sanders who never was a favorite with the fickle Dame. Lucky Tom Car ter, "look a little out."
