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
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.

(Jeorge O. Freeman of this state has j
been appointed confidential clerk to j
Commissioner General Carter of the j
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
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.
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
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.

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

\\ 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
The census bulletin on the subject of
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.
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.

Montana, it is hoped the newspapers of
the state will republish this request.

hand machine of the same kind some
weeks ago, and the editor had used it

so we let the thing run right along until

of the black art even for the purpose of

seems runs a second hand machine.
Such practices always result seriously to
the human system, and we doubt not
that the visible mental disturbances of
our neighbor have been greatly superin
duced by his alliance with necromancy
in the running of his paper. With this
apology for Bro. Alderson's poetry, if it
is lawful to call it poetry, we again lapse
into solid prose.
Anniversary of Odtllellowslii]».
The seventy-second anniversary of the
organization of Oddfelloxvship in the
United States was appropriately ob
served Monday evening by Park Lodge
and Columbia Encampment No. 17. The
exercises, conducted in Odd Fellows
hall in the Miles block, opened with an
ode and prayer by the chaplain. After
the customary questions by the noble
grand relative to the order, responded to
by the vice grand, and the reading of
the proclamation by the secretary, the
speaker of the evening, Judge H. Mc
Murphy of Butte, delivered an interest
ing oration, historical of Oddfellowship,
At the conclusion of the exercises in the
hall the party repaired to the Albemarle,
where an excellent banquet was served
and appropriate speeches were made by
Mayor A. R. Joy and Master Mechanic
Angus Brown of the Northern Pacific.
In addition to members of Park Lodge
and their wives, a large number of in
vited guests enjoyed the hospitality of
the occasion, about one hundred and
fifty persons being in attendance. Af
ter the banquet a large number returned
to the hull, where dancing was indulged
in until an early hour in the morning,
when tiie party dispersed, fully satisfied
with the pleasures of this annual event.
Tiie city council met in special session
Friday evening to canvass the vote at
the city election held April 13th, 1891.
All aldermen present. In the absence
of Mayor Joy, President Nve called the
council to order and presided. The can
vass of the vote showed very little alter
