GEO. H. WRIGHT, - " Editor and fropnotor. OFFICIAL PAPEK OF PARK COL'NTT and the City of Livingston. SATURDAY. MAY 1891. (Cnterert at the pogtnfllce in Livingston, M. T. a second-das» mail matter. The Herald takes the trouble to deny the scurrilous statements made regard ing the editor of this paper in last week's Post. This is an apparent waste of energy. The reputation the Post has established as the great organ of misinformation leads every person con versant with the facts to "copper" any statement it may make. Hence we did not consider a correction of its false assertion necessary. Commissioner Carter of the general land office has issued instructions to registers and receivers of land offices in regard to desert land entries, lie says final proof must he made on all desert, land entries under act of March 5, 18S7, within three years, and when sought to l*e perfected under the act of March, 1891, within four years from date of entry. Publication of notice of inten tion to make linal proof must he made in all cases where entries are instituted after August 1, 1887. :_ - .....— i — (Jeorge O. Freeman of this state has j been appointed confidential clerk to j Commissioner General Carter of the j land office. after August 1, 1887. The Herald attempts to dodge re sponsibility for its attack upon the cop per industry by the specious plea that it is the protective policy of the repub lican party and not copper that it as sails. As the present favorable condi tion of the copper market is directly at tributable to the benelicent effect of the tariff, it is difficult to conceive how the protective policy of the republican party can be successfully assailed with out injury to the copper industry. The Missoulian announces that at the expiration of existing advertising contracts its daily edition will he sus pended. The reason assigned is serious financial loss and ill health of Editor Spaulding, consequent upon the worry and annoyance attending the manage ment of a daily paper. To those ac quainted with the expense incidental to the publication of a daily it lias always I teen a question whether Missoula could furnish legitimate support for two dailies, and the determination of Mr. Spaulding to retire will create no surprise. A Washington morning paper asserts that Secretary Noble will soon he suc ceeded in the cabinet by Thomas II. Carter, who has recently been made commissioner of the general land office. A close friend of both Carter and the president, commenting upon the state ment, said that Carter would never have taken the position of land com missioner unless he expected to get more out of it than that mere position, and that there was an understanding that he was to have something better in time. The west would welcome Carter as secretary of the interior. Anent the discussion provoked by the grand jury report it is pertinent to call the attention of the "chronic kickers" to the flattering financial condition of the county, as evidence«! by the receipt of its warrants at par by one of the l«*ading financial institutions of eastern Montana. This announcement, follow ing closely as it does upon the silly eharges of crookedness and extrava gance in the a«lministration of county affairs, is an effective refutation. There are few, if any, of the other counties in Montana where warrants are main tained at par, and this fact proves con clusively that tbeaffairsof 1'ark county have at no time been administered in a manner to impair its credit, the dis gruntled schemers and their democratic allies to the contrary notwithstanding. The announcement was received in Washington Wednesday that the Chi nese government has notifieil the Fnit e«l States of unwillingness to receive Ex-Senator Blair as minister. Neither Secretary Blaine nor the Chinese minis ter would talk on the subject- The objection causes no excitement, as the l nited states recognizes the right of a foreign power to express unwillingness to receive a minister not entirely ae ceptabie. The probable cause of this attitude of the Chinese government is the strong position Mr. Blaine took in tavor of excluding Chinese from this country while representing New Hamp shire in the l'nited States senate. Speeches made at that time xvere res urrected shortly after the appointment of the new minister to China and these have no iloubt reached the Flowery Kingdom and created a prejudice against the ex-senator. in for tary no he sess per rate not of will This ex-senator. The beneficial influence of the pro tective policy of the republican party in stimulating American manufactures is shown by the annual statistical re port of the American Iron and Steel association for 1890. The United .States made the best record in the production of iron and steel that has ever been made by any country. This is remark able, in view of the faqt that the pro ducts of 1888 and 1889 were both con sidered phenomenal. For 1890 the pro duction was as follows, in net tons l*ig iron, including spiegel, 10,307,028: Bessemer steel ingots, 4,131,535; open hearth ingots, 574,820; Bessemer steel rails, 2,091,973; open hearth rails, 4,018; crucible steel ingots, 79,716; rolled iron, except rails, 2,804,829; rolled steel, ex cept rails, 1,829,247; iron rails, 15,548; pig, scrap and ore blooms, 30,788; kegs of iron cut nails, 1,806,130; kegs of steel cut nails, 3,824,816; kegs of wire nails, 3,133,911; iron and steel wire rods 511,951. A meeting of sheriffs from the conn ties designated as first-class under the provisions of the salary bill passed last winter, was held in Helena the past week for the purpose of perfecting plans to test the constitutionality of the fee law. The theory advanced is that their election under the old law is in the nature of a contract, which cannot be annulled by act of the legislature during the term for which these offi cials were electetl. Whether this is a correct legal view of the case cannot be known until it is tested in the courts, but it is certainly only a matter of jus tice to officials that they be permitted to enjoy the full benefits of their office until the expiration of their terms. This was the only valid objection that was offered against the passage of the salary law when it wm under consider ky the legislature last winter. « ith a change of salaries to take effect with the election of new officials, no matter how great the reduction, injus tice would not result to any one, as the person accepting an election under the changed conditions would do so know ing the compensation to be received. A test case will probably l*e made upon appeal of Sheriff Lloyd of .Silver Bow f™** 1 action of the commissioners of that county in disallowing his bill for boarding prisoners, which was ren dered in accordance with the provis ions of the old law. The residends of Last C'hance auleh have been effectually "snubbed" by the °A A hC «"J!»*™ & Missouri railroad. After devoting a vast amount of newspaper space in expat iating upon .he benefits to the temporary capital by reason of the extension of the Bur lington system to that place as a natu« ral result of a visit from the magnates or the company now touring through the west, and after elaborate prepar ations had been perfected for a grand of If be If at it ; reception, Helena was doomed to a ; sore disappointment.

Indications are strong that this con nection will be made during the coin ing summer, and those who claim to he in confidential relations with officials of the company assert that construction will Is* begun before June 1st. The ac Uvity of the Burlington & Missouri I and other rival lines with reference to I Montana extensions will compel the Northern I antic, in carrying out its past aggressive policy, to cover ex posed points with connecting lines, and for this reason it is evident that a rail road to Castle must he among the first branch lines built, within lines built within the state. Aslde * ro,n this incentive the business i Castle, with the tributary traffic ■ n ru 'h an, l fertile .Shields valley win be sufficient inducement to build a railroad to that camp, as it wouhl be a remunerative investment from the date of its completion. i I ! j ! In [ So of our in sus ac to for of no II. the get of in a of its completion. \\ ashington dispa'ch: It is expected that, in a lew days the secretary of the interior will renders decision in which the rights of settlers on indemnity lands of the Northern Pacific will be determined. Several years ago a large number or' settlers went upon the lands claimed by both die Northern Pacific ancl Manitoba, believing that when the rights of the companies were deter mined the settlers would be found to have valid possession. If the supreme court had decided that the Manitoba was entitled to the land in the overlap ping limits case the settlers might have established their rights, but as the Northern Pacific was successful there is nothing for the secretary to do but to adjudge the disputed lands to that company in all cases «'here the settle ment was made subsequent to filing the map of definite location. As the num ber of settlers on the lands previous to that date was comparatively small, there is little encouragement for them in this determination. A large num ber of cases are pending which will be affected by this decision, and after it is promulgated the settlers on Northern Pacific lands would better accept the inevitable and move off. Another fea ture of the case is that there is not any apparent indemnity for the settlers who have gone upon the lands, and they «'ill lose all that they have put on the lands in the way of improvements and «'ill he out their time as «'ell. The railroad company is not to blame, as it has always claimed title to the lands. The lottery companies received a black eye at the treasury department which, it is thought, will have the ef fect of driving them out of the busi ness. Having lieen debarred from the United States mail, branches of lottery companies which formerly did business in the United States have been estab lished in Mexico. Under the law printed matter from Mexico cannot he refused entry, and each month lottery tickets have been presented at the cus tom houses along the Mexican frontier for admission into the United States. They ha.e heretofore been admitted without question, hut Assistant Secre tary Spaulding has hit upon a novel plan to prevent their coming into this country. He has decided that there is no law to prevent lottery tickets from being admitted as printed matter, but he instructs the custom officers to as sess duty upon them at the rate of 25 per cent ad valorem on their face value, under paragraph 423, schedule M of the McKinley bill, which proviiles for this rate of «luty upon "all printed matter not especially provided for." Tickets of the value of #10 under this decision will have to pay #2.50 enstoms duty. This high rate of duty will, it is thought, practically prohibit their im portation. Being debarred from the United States mails, from express com panies and transportation lines, the lot tery companies will lind it difficult to dispose of their «'ares in the United States. of for ley, 204. 335; ger, The census bulletin on the subject of day tack time to tiie The census bulletin on the subject of irrigation in New Mexico shows that in that territory there are 3,085 farms irrigated out of a total number ot 4,174 not including those of the Pueblo In dians. The average first cost of water right is #5.58 per acre, and the cost of the land, cost of preparing it for culti vation, etc., brings the average cost to the farmers of #18.54 per acre. The es timated present value of the irrigated farms, including improvements, aver ages $50.98 per acre, showing an ap parent profit, less the cost of the build ings, of #32.44 per acre. Comparing the average annual expense for water of #1.54 per acre with the average an nual value of the productions, which is #12.80 per acre, it appears the annual average return per acre is #11.26. Two per cent of the farmers own over one fifth of the productive land, excluding the non-irrigated areas. by H O W .Joe the The bulletin on the density of the distribution of population issued by the census ofiiee shows that during the last decade the per cent of increase in set tled areas was 24.06 per cent, while the increase in population of the country was 24.86. Three hundred and seventv seven thousand seven hundred and fif teen square miles have been redeemed during the last ten years, exceeding by 80,384 square miles the area settled in the previous decade. The Sisters of Providence of St. Mary's, Vigo county, Indiana, wishing to know the whereabouts of all their former pupils, would be pleased to have each one send immediately a postal card giv ing her full address. As there are a number of graduates of this school in Montana, it is hoped the newspapers of the state will republish this request. Préau Comment.

It is another of Blaine's shrewd schemes to solidify the north west and make it overwhelmingly re publican.
