In or<'.rr to quiet the apprehensions of his listeners anti put them ingood humor he told themn he was nat a candidate for any tflice. He then had an attentive audience and clear suiting. Ingalls is a brilliant man. Hle may not. viewed fromt a strictly moral stand Isint, be a eenscientious partisan. They are very hard to find. but he sizes up to no great disadvantage with the purest of our so-called leading statesmen. Ho is sareistic. Litter and vindictive in dealing with his political enemies. His friends -if te have any-- far rather than love him. His intitetce is limited. for lIe is not in touch with the ;apele. It. stands alone. Ii, is Ingalls.

Fuow true ainti how wall put this is. and his prediction then made is in course of fulfillment. "The ultimate coalition." he said, "-of all the political forces of this section is inevitable. The west will ela cure its emancipation from the control of the atlantic seaboaard. This is one af the events of the near future." The conflict is at hand. It is showing itself today an the tight upon the silver and the tariff questions. The battle is be tween the East upon the one side and the West and Houth upon the other. The East wants a purely gold standarda the South and West favor bimetallisnm. The East is fighting for high protection: the West unit South are liattling for a greatly niuiaitieal tariff, In the etia thai' East will he eiaten. for the center of I population. of wealth. and of political 1 representation is gradually but surely a moving westward. Mr. Ingalls saw these ' things years aga; we all see them now. Kansas retired an extraordinary man w when she retired Ingalls. Hut he is on a deck again. What the future has in a store for him is not clear at present. That state seems to have no use for him a now, but it may yet learn that it has re placed, what the wo'ld is pleased to' term, an Intellectual visionary with an ordinary crank, when she kept Ingalls at1 home and sent Peffer to the United t stat**a seae. BUTT AND OKRAT FALL". Great Falls' guests from Butte ex e pressed themselves well pleased with what they saw during their comparative a ly brief stay in the city. It cannot.bow i ever, be assumed they took the full measure of the possibilities of the place. This could not be done unless they were r thoroughly acquainted with it surround 'I ing resources. They saw the great dam, the smelters and were doubtiess in pressed with the vastness of eacn. No one can look upon the great volumes of water as they dash over the falls without feeling they were in the presence of a mighty, irresistible power. But few com prehend the fec that within a distance of six or eight miles down the river from the city it is possible to build a dozen or more such dams and tWe same huge vol times of water at each may be harnessed to machinery and furnish employment to thousands of men. The water power at Great Falls is practically unlimited. To our visitors the T'RinrN will say the time is rapidly approaching when other dams will be built, other vast re (luction works will be erected; when great manufacturing enterprises will be established and the falling of waters, the clang of stamps. the hum of machinery and the voices of workmen will not be lost to hearing for miles upon the banks of the mighty river whose swiftly flow. ing waters are now hurrying on to the sea. We say the time is drawing near when all these things will be seen and heard and then instead of a city of 8,0K) they will see a prosperous metropolis of 10i.(Nt0 souls. It is coming. It is mani fest destiny. And Butte, the greatest mining center in the world, will do not a little to bring this change about. Millions of tons of her ores will be reduced upon the banks of the Missouri ut Great k'alls. and the two cities which have already joined hands across the great Rockies will lie bound together, not only by hands of steel. but by indissoluble ties of sym pathy and a common interest. This is also manifest destiny. And the sonie factors which will unite Ilutte und Great I-alis in undivorceable marriage will bring the groat mining districts of Neihart and Harker and Castle and the Sweet grass hills and the Little Rockies within the family fold. Each will lie brought closely together by a common purpose and a community of interests. The un chained natural power an abundant here I' will hasten this consuniiation. for it is manifest destiny. Wee, .r. disclaiming any desire to make light of so grave a matter the Trnrucec: will say that the proposed advance in linding twine from e3 to I cents a pound is rather binding upon the farmers of the coeuntre . The Sioux Falls Argus Leader. in commenting upon it. says: "South Dakota in 18:11 ensnumed in round numbers 17, 4O,tttM pounds of binding twine. Supposing the same amount is used in 180t2, and supposing the average increase in price is :11. cents a pound, South Dakota buyers will in 181r2 pay to this trust. because of today s increase in price. Z4017.400, over half a million dollars sucked in by a vampire which last year cleared $1,4(t),000. If binding twine were on the free list, it is doubtful whether a trust of this Pert could live toe rob the farmer. A ird:.liee Massachusetts woelie- ean ifacturer in the Wool Consumers As sociation hes this to say about the Springer free woel leill: "Free wool with the presient ad valoreme rates upon geeds. woule be a great gain to woolen manufacturers; and as en the woolen schedule. free wool brings ie very large reductiin in the duties on geecls . with targel) reduced cest on eeney woolen goods. the till for free wool woetld ben-. lit i-c ry ibe.

Tee c: republi-ans in the house lie not, it appears, feel inclindl to join hands with the anti-silver democrats to defeat the Ihland bill. They doubtless think it is none of their light or funeral and are I disposed to let the democrats shape the preliminary disposition of the hill as they may. reserving the right to vote as they please when it shall come before the house for final determination. Next Monday. however. will determine the fate of the measure. In the meantime every true friend of the white metal will join in the wish that the report of the rules committee fixing the date for the consideration of the hill will be adopted. f 'I'is: meeting of the (treat Falls Dem eseratic Club Ieis oet l~ "ee "indefinitely o postponed" as the types made the Tran- ac New: say yesterday eermering.

I A BANKR3 ON hILVER. ix- Eastern bankers generally and London th bankers particularly are supposed to be 'e- opposed to the tree coinage of silver, but w there are among them men whose all breadth of view reaches beyond their se. immediate surroundings and who are re capable of comprehending the fact that d- gold cannot supply the demands of the n, business world. Quite recently the di n rector of a Lonmon bank was interviewed to in a western city upon the question of of free coinage, and in the course of his it cnversation said that it would be worth a a million pounds to him to know that n. congress would enact a silver coinage e law this winter. lie then gave his ro reason why it would be worth so much. tr "There are," he said, "*i.80,00Ni,tt)O of in i- dian securities owned in London, which d advance and fall in price with silver. it Free coinage in your country would ad 'r vance their value :10 per cent." In reply to the question whether he y believed that the adoption of free coin n age by the United States would advance the price of silver everywhere to its ii coinage value he said: "Europe has not e spare silver enough to send there to e break the market. All we could send y would not pay for your exports of wheat, e to say nothing of other exports. In your, s rapidly growing country you could ab - sorb all the annual silver product of the world, if you could get it." r Then in th'e course of a long conversea I tion on the question he brought out this point, which is a fundamental doctrine f in all political economies, but which nioet gold monometallists will not recog nize, viz: "Everything gets its value from the use which can be made of it. You have an American silver dollar in your 1 hand. The bullion in it is worth about t three shillings, or 75 cents. You can take it to 34 Cornhill street and get four I shillings or thi cents for it. The reason is because it is worth 100 cents in the United States and a money broker .an make money by giving 9i( cents for it. If you had free coinage we could make the same use of silver' bullion that we now make of your coined dollars, and it would consequently advance to its value everywhere." lie was of the opinion that Europe could not send much silver to this country in the event of free coinage and what she did send would be exchanged for whatever there was the most prolit in buying. It might be wheat, or 'otton, or gold, or any other thing. But there would not be much to go to the United States. As soon as we adopted free coin age silver would so advance in price in Europe that there will Ix little profit in sending it to this country. If the United States adopt free coinage the Latin union will adopt it, and then it this country keep its rule of 10 to 1, as it is now, and the Latin union retains 15i, to 1, our sil ver will go to Europe instead of being coined, because it will be worth more in Europe than in America. This conversation was with a London banker of national repute, who was and is a gold monometallist. But he is a gold monometallist simply because he is , not in favor of having any more money v in the world. The statements he made are incontrovertible, as almost every t student of political economy and none tary science knows. , c Ties report that has been published in the tit. Paul and New York papers re garding the F'irst National bank, stating that it is in the hands of a receiver, is so utterly absurd and false on its face that it would never be believed by those who are acquainteea with the bank or its offi cers. It is the work either of malice or gross carelessness. The Tniicvn : is glad to be able to say that there is no more solid linanecial institution in the north west than the First National bank. and no siwre careful anul conscientious bunk ofticers th an those in (ablrge of its affairs. It it; the -sincere wish of the To u-ni: that tlhi person wMit is responsible for the report will he run down and pun-n ished uS he deserves. flMu..

The First National bank had an un pleasant surprise yesterday. About 4 o'clock in the afternoon Cashier Dicker man received a telegram from the Chase National bank of New York stating that the New Yolk papers of yesterday morn ing contained a telegram to the effect that the First National bank of treat Falls, Montana, was in the hands ou the bank examiner. This was followed by a telegram from President Collins stating that the St. Paul papers contained Asso ciated Press dispatches to the same ef fect. It is needless to say that Mr. t)ickerman was surprised and unpleas antly so. Inquiry at the telegraph of lices elicited the fact that no such tele grail, nor any that could be twisted into a reflection on the bank. had been sent from this city. A meeting of the Clearing House as sociation was immediately called. The association met at 8 o'clock and unani mously adopted the following resolutions: WHEREAS, It has been brought to the notice of the Great Falls Clearing House association that a report has been cir culated in the east and published in the St. Paul and New York papers, as a re port from the Associated press, stating in effect that the First National bank of (ireat Falls, Mont., is in the hands of the examiner; and, WHEREAS, We know such report to be false and utterly without foundation, therefore he it Resolved, That we as an organization pronounce the report as wholly and ab solutely false and without any founda tion in fact. Resolcv'r, That the Great Falls Clear ing House association does hereby offer a reward of one hundred dollars for in formation as to the name of the person who sent out the report, and a reward of five hundred dollars for the arrest and conviction of such person. GREAT F.+r.I.s CI.nvauls HorF: Asso 'I.TION. This resolution was telegraphed to the Associated Press and special telegrams were sent out to several western papers and also to the president of the New York clearing house. Mr. Dickerman has imade a vigorous investigation here. but has not been able to discover any facts that throw light on the origin of the report. It is either the w( rk of deliberate malice or a serious blunder of an ambitious correspondent of the Associated Press in some of the neighboring cities. It is needless to say that the First National bank is one of the most solid financial institutions of Montana and. indeed, the entire north west. Why it should be singled out for such a report is inconceivable. The banks oulleers will not let the matter rest but will run down the author of the calumny if possible and make him suffer mor it.

ITS REIGN AT HAND. OLIVE HARPER REFERS TO THE COM ING VOGUE OF SILK. A Fashion Letter That Is Filled with I. teresting Gossip as to the styles and Fabrics That Will Shortly Be Popular, Handsonmely Ilestrated. [Speeial Csrrespondence.l NEw YORK, Feb. "'.-It is doubtful if there was ever a time when there was such a great variety of milks on the mar ket, but I think the palm for beauty must be awarded to the superb peaa de soie. which is the richest plain silk made. Next to that come the failles and after them the grosgrain anJ bengaline, though beigaline has never been very popular as a dress silk that was intended for long wear, as it was confounded with a sort of French poplin which soon cracked and pulled and grew shiny. But real bengaline silk is good value for wear and for appearance, being specially valuable for mourning, as it is not lus trous like the other silks. " Among the new weaves in domestic silks which are now, and justly, consid ered better for wear than any foreign silk, I mee the tricotine, which bas a sur face which looks like the inside of knit ted goods, and it is very handsome and flexible, and will retail at about $1.S2i per yard: it is twenty-fourinch es wide; some is even wider. Some of the tricotine has a satin finish, and is a very rich fabric, requiring little trimming. It comes in black and all the fash ionable colors. Armure andi double :aced ar mure are shown & in several grades. .. The right side (if this is armnre (or armor) pattern and the other side satin finish, each VELVET AND CHANGE side so distinct ABLE TEA GOWN. from the other that it is called by some reversible, mnd will be made up so as to show the two sides by means of a jabot drapery adown the sides, on the sleeves and corurage. The selvage. which is white, is left on and covered with a very narrow jet garniture or a narrow gilt braid, or feathered fringe if preferred, or it can be cut away under a heavy but tonhole scallop. The clever dressmaker can always devise something. But the white edge showing through the meshes of jet trimming is considered the hand soniest. Some of the double faced armure has a Bedford cord on the other side. The light weight swivels in detached or allover patterns will be very popular made with accordion plaiting, which promises now to have a vogue greater than it ever did Isfore. It is seen with every new style of silk or grenadine. One pattern of changeable silk was a remarkable combination of color, and yet it made tcne of the most beautiful pieces of silk I ever saw. It was bright myrtle green with carmine lake (which is deep rose leaf pink), and as the light would strike the folds the two colors would show in beautiful effect. A love ly lilac had a countershade of royal purple. I saw a tea gown made of this latter, the front and sleeves being of the changeable silk and the rest of deep heliotrope velvet. Cream Spanish lace was laid on the sides. I give a glimpse of this gown here. A handsome visiting dress was imade of fawn colored cream pean de Buie over green and black striped silk and bor dered with sable, with the heads show ing at each lapped place. This dress I also present as showing the novel ar rangement of the corsage. The stronghold. however, of all the best new unmmer goods is not touched until we aspak of the beantiful new black silk grenadines. There are grad unated satin i-trip-s in twelve designs, some wite and somic narrow single strilps, n-I i.inii sheer and plain, some thin amp ttlne. 111 others so close woven Two HtANDHcEo COSTUMES. (iGray leenmstine and geeu n velvet. and fawn sleet SNi-ress mris dete1.l as to is- tme-rly opaque, and all of. the best Met f1i, I mmmality. Someare made in si-immli!: , t1.erus of hard twisted silk. mamp - hii- hmve satindots and coffee btams, bel the lest ctd richest of all to cmy fancy is the stunt iron frame grena dine.. All these grenadines, except the lmgiludinal stripes, will be accordion plaited. These are all silk. There are wesm or wocl and silk grenadines also; but the vilk grenadine is the only one really worth making up. The evening and children'seshades of silk are marvels of seanty, and will re tail at from eighty-five cents to $1.2mper yard, and the changeable taffetas will run about the same. When we remem ber how long a silk der. laste clean, and tow the silks of today can be nearly all meashed, it is a wonder that we wear anythirg else. I would not if I could seip it. I think the reign of silk is near it hand. 4)m.mvs HAsars. "The wide world knit with ties."
