GEO. H. WEIGHT, - - - Editor and Proprietor. OFFICIAL PAPER OF PARK COUNTY SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3. 1801. Entt-r*-rt Hi the poptofllre ln Livingston, M. T. s ppcunil cl»»« mail matter. Major General .Schofield approves the new army tactics, and when they re ceive the approval of the secretary of war steps will be taken at once to put them in operation. Briefly described, the general scheme is the development of the skirmish drill to the highest point.__ The surveyor general of Montana has )>een authorized to award the contract for the survey of the boundaries of the timber reservations on the eastern and southern boundaries of Yellowstone Bark, and to push the work during the coming season. Nine thousand dollars is estimated as the cost of the work. Not withstanding the decision of .fudge Swan of the United States dis trict court at Detroit to the effect that Chinese entering the United States from Canada must be returned to that government as the country from which they came, the gratifying intelligence comes from Washington that the treas ury department will not be governed by this interpretation, but will send all Chinese found in this country,contrary to the provisions of the exclusion act, back to China. Assistant Secretary Spaulding has w ritten a letter to the special agent at Tacoma, Wash., in re gard to the recent decision of the I'nited States court in the state of Washington, wherein it was held that certain Chinese laborers sentenced to deportation to China were legally domiciled in the United States. The special agent is informed that notwith standing this decision the interpreta tion of the treasury department of the law relating to the immigration of Chinese, as requiring their return to China if found at any time to be un lawfully within the United States, must continue to be the guide of his oiticial action until overrided by the supreme court. This is in accord with the recent ruling of Judge Knowles in the case of the eight Chinese found in this state several weeks ago, and is the only just interpretation of the law. Any adverse finding will defeat the ob ject of the law and practically render it a nullitv. RAILROAD lO CASTLE. As was predicted when the question of railroad construction from Bozeman to Castle w r as first agitated, that propo sition did not present advantages to en sure its consummation. The scheme, which at first was favorably received ai Castle, is now repudiated as infeasible and the Tribune of that city is again advocating the building of a road over the easy and natural grade afforded by the Shields valley from this city. In commenting upon the question of rail road transportation, the Tribune says: One of the best and strongest efforts ever undertaken in behalf of a railroad to Castle is now being made. The pro moters of this scheme purpose to raise in cash $300,000. If they are success ful they will begin construction at once. The assertion that such a move ment is on foot may seem ridiculous to many of our people, because when a railroad is agitated here we usually call a public meeting. Some wind bags that we have among us make it the oc casion to do a good deal of talking. They leave the green cloth table and cash in their chips and repair to the hall. There they attempt by their elo quence to captivate the masses. When called upon to subscribe they unload on the movement a portion of their ill gotten and almost worthless mining stock. The men that are trying to carry through this last railroad proposition have not called upon the people here yet to aid the measure. If they are successful at some of the great railroad centers in the east in enlisting aid in behalf of this line they w ill then come here and tell the people of this town what they are endeavoring to accomp lish and what they have achieved. Among the promoters of this last rail road scheme are some of the men who in the early part of the spring attempted to raise funds for the purpose of con necting this place by rail with the Northern Pacific railroad. Some of these men, since the time this railroad was first talked of here this season, have never abandoned the project of seeing such a road built to Castle. They undertook then to raise the necessary funds for that purpose. They failed. All their efforts were made in good faith. It was only on account of sick ness overtaking two of the men that they were acting for that prevented the consummation of their plans. Castle must and will ere long have a railroad. THE TIN PLATE ISSUE. In the crusade the democratic party is making against the McKinley bill, on account of the tin plate provision, it is simply repeating the senseless policy pursued with reference to the encour agement of the manufacture of steel rails in this country. Prior to the im position of the duty on steel rails every attempt to establish manufactories in the United States was defeated by for eign manufacturers who, by reason of lietter equipments and comparatively unlimited capital, were enabled to glut the American markets and by a tempo rary reduction in prices crush out or effectually cripple our infant industries. With this condition existing the gov ernment was appealed to for assistance and the Lenelicent policy of protection of the republican party was brought to bear in the interest of home enterprises by the fixing ot a duty on steel rails that would permit of their successful and remunerative production in this country. Then, as now, the democratic party raised the cry of a robber tariff and predicted that the people would be compelled to pay the then ruling price for steel rails, with the duty added. It was urged on the other hand by the ad vocates of protection that under the advantages afforded by the duty Amer ican manufacturers would simply re ceive immunity from the ruinous com petition incident to the low scale of prices temporarily adopted by British manufacturera for the purpose of crushing out home enterprises. The result has more than fulfilled this pre diction. Under the stimulating influ ences of protection immense steel and iron works have been built up in this country, improved methods have been devised for producing steel rails, prices have been reduced 50 to 75 per cent, and above all a home demand has been in T. re of ut a e< or a >or that obviates paying n m e o ore gn countries. ie * arne 0< ~ >n lt ' on that prevailed " 1 re ® rer >ce o steel rails is applica L- " ° ,/* m ,n<l " str - v this time, ,\er\ a empt to establish tin works in this country previous to the passage of the McKinley bill has met with a sweeping reduction of prices by foreign mannfacturers, only to be restored to orme» gures when the home enter prise was effectually crushed The McKinley bill, which provides a duty that will prevent this disastrous com petition, is assailed by the democratic party as a robber tariff. The press and orators of that party predicted that as a result of this protection the price of manufactured tin articles would be en hanced and the consumer compelled to pay the added duty. But in this the logic of events has demonstrated the falsity of these claims. Xo perceptible advance in prices having followed, the party ol negation has abandoned that objection and is now engaged in a war fare against infant tin industries. In Ohio every method known to the wily politician is resorted to to discourage such enterprises and disparage their importance. But such unpatriotic and and unAmerican warfare is being suc cessfully controverted, as in the in stance of the Piqua, Ohio, tin works, the existence of which company is strenuously denied by the democratic press. In speaking of this enterprise, the Metal Worker, published at New York and Chicago, amply refutes this latest, democratic claim, in the follow ing: It has been known for some time that the Cincinnati Corrugating company, whose plant, is at Piqua. Ohio, was making practical efforts toward the es tablishment of a tin plate works, and the earliest result of this effort is a very handsome lot of tin plates that the company has produced within the past ten days. A sample of the lot w hich has been forwarded for our inspection show's it to lie a high grade of roofing plate, of smooth and even finish, with no uncoated spots to prophesy rust. The surface is more bright than with the common run of imported plate, showing that a considerable amount of tin was used in the mixture. The sheet is of No. 30 gauge, corresponding approximately to an I. C. plate, though accurately speaking it is a little higher, which is a little to the credit of the Cincinnati Corrugating company, be cause it is in rolling the thinner gauges that the most difficulty is experienced. A feature of this plate is that it is American product throughout. The black plate was made from Bessemer steel billets, manufactured at Middle port, Ohio, and rolled bv the Piqua Rolling Mill company. 'The pig tin used in the coating came from the Temescal mines, San Bernardino county, California, and the lead was from the Missouri mines. The manufacturers hope to turn out still better plates as soon as the mill is equipped for cold rolling, which will enable them to put a better surface on the black sheet be fore tinning. Il spite of the fact, how ever, that the present lot of plates were not cold rolled, the terne coating f re sents a surface that will compare favor ably with any of the better grades of imported plates. The Cincinnati Cor rugating company are to be congratu lated on the excellent result of their first attempt in making tin plates, and we hope that the trade will soon be able to put the product to a practical test in the roofing work. Press Comment. Inter Mountain: When gold was go ing from this country to Europe, the new tariff law was held responsible, and a great free trade howl went up but now that gold is coming this way again the fact is not considered a fit subject of comment. It is another ox now. Standard: The Princeton geological expedition, which spent the summer in Montana looking for old fossils has got back east, and its members are relating their experiences to scores of reporters It seems that the learned gentlemen ran short of cash while in this state and were too proud to reveal their embar rassed condition to any of us. For many days they subsisted on sand wiches and coffee, and of the railroad sandwich as found in Montana they re frain from speaking in terms that are extravagantly eulogistic. A Princeton college professor cannot be blamed for seeking to avoid the appearance and distinguishing traits of a western hobo. It would grate harshly upon his feel ings to be dragged into Judge McMur phey's court as a suspicious character without visible means of support and sentenced to ninety days for vagrancy, and the conservatism displayed by the members of the expedition in the mat ter of expenditures for refreshments, therefore, is easily comprehended. But it was false pride that kept them from quietly speaking to some of us newspa per men about their being strapped. We could have put them onto some of the fi nest free lunches set before the public in modern times. It is gratify ing, however, to learn that the scientists obtained a variety of very valuable old fossils in Montana, which, they believe, amply compensate them for the sand wiches and coffee they experienced. This, by the way, is the first intimation the public has received that Helena has lost some of her prominent citizens. In a few days experiments are to take place in Wales with an American in vention known as Snyder's dynamite projectile. Foreign governments are interested in the tests and several of them will have experts to w'atch the results. F. II. Snyder of New York, conducted a series of trials at Sandy Hook, and on the Potomac, near Wash ington, several years ago. A short time ago a private exhibition was made be fore shareholders. Mr. Sny der says the guns used were six-inch breech-loading naval rifles, and seven-inch muzzle loading rifles. The highest charges of powder were used consisting of one third quick-burning black powder, with two-thirds brown prismatic, which gave shells charged with from ten to fifteen pounds of nitro gelatine an in itial velocity of 585 metres per second. The charges were so heavy that con crete foundations nine feet in depth under the guns were shattered. The shell or projectile is adaptable to any style of ordnance. The census office has issued a bullet in on the coal product of the United States, it shows the coal product of the United States reached a total of 141,229,513 short tons in the oensus year, and was valued at thn mines, be fore any expenses for shipment, at 8160,226,328. The product included 45,600,487 short tons of Pennsylvania and other anthracite, worth $65,879,514 and 65,629,026 short tons of liituminous. . and lignite valued at $94J146,809. The I average value of all saleable grades of anthracite was 81.58 per ton at l j mines. In 1880 the total product in eluded 828,649,012 short tons of arthra in ! cite and 42,831,758 short tons of bitnini of nous coal. The value of the entire a i product was 895.640.396. The product j increased 97.57 per cent, during the de to ! cade, and the total value 67.53 per cent The total number of persons engaged as of en to In is persons in the industry was 299.559, who re ceived in the aggregate. $109,130,928, as wages The annual report of Commissioner Raum of the pension bureau, submitted to the.secretary of the interior, shows that on June 30, 1891, there were 676, 160 pensioners on the rolls, being an increase of 138,216 for the last fiscal year: They are classified as follows: Widows and daughters of revolution ary soldiers. 23; army invalid pension ers, 413,595; army widows, minor chil dren, etc., 108,537; navy invalid pension ers, 5,449; navy widows, minor chil dren, etc., 2,568; survivors of the war of 1812, 7,590; survivors of the Mexican war, 16,379; widows of soldiers of the Mexican war, 6,972.

The aggregate cost, however, was 81,087,302 less. There w'ere 22,521 first payments of every de scription, requiring $138,552,274, being $69,592 less than required for 130,514 first payments made during the last fiscal year. The average value of first payments was $239; average value of first payments under the act of June 27, 1890, was $71. The aggregate an nual value of 676,150 pensions on the roll June 30, 1891, was $89,247,200; av erage value of each pension. $139; av erage value of each pension under the act of June 27,1890, $121. The bureau of American republics is informed that the Mexican government has cancelled the concession given Wm. H. Ellis and Henry C. Ferguson of Texas, who proposed to colonize with colored people certain districts in the states of Vera Cruz, Oaxaca, Miehea can, Guerrere and San Luis Potosi. County Teacher»' Institute.

Helena Herald: The Lone Pine group of mines, in Beaverhead county, has passed into the hands of an English syn dicate. The price paid for these proper ties is 8725,000. The group consists of the Lone Pine, Horace Greeley, Excel sior, Ben Harrison, Silver King, Silver Star, Luna and Fraction claims. Capt. H. Prideaux, representing the syndi cate, paid over the money. The sale is one of the largest yet made in Montana, but foreign investors have done so well in the bonanza state that it is reasona ble to presume that they are ready and willing at all times to purchase valuable mines. The Elkhorn, Drum Luinmou and Lexington are owned principally in England and France and are large pro ducers of the precious metals. Among the principal stockholders who incorporated the Lone Pine com pany two years ago were A. M. Spratt of Michigaq, L. C. Fyhrie of Dillon, Thomas M. Luther, A. D. Churchill, T. C. Power, E. D. Bannister, William C. Child, N. W. McConnell and J. B. Clay berg of Helena. A Grand Forks, North Dakota, dis patch sayB that James S. Sinclair, a farmer near that place and distant rela tive of the Earl of Caithness, has re ceived word from England that he has succeeded to the title and estate of that Englishman. A masked man obtained entrance to the Laramie, Wyoming, jail Sunday, bound and gagged the keeper and re leased Miller, the boy murderer, await ing execution, and Parkinson, a soldier, convicted of murder. Miller was cap tured later by a posse, but Parkinson is still at large. About twelve miles from Butte, on the Pipestone road, Wednesday, the cabin of Lewis Harding was discovered burned to the ground and in the ruins were found the charred remains of the occupant. Harding is reported to have had considerable money with him and it is supposed he was murdered for his money and the cabin set on fire to cover the evidence of crime.
