Her wonderful growth and development, her mar vclous water power, immense, smel ters, tjold, silver and copper mines, some of her great resources. Interesting letter from Col. Mack J. Learning of Denver, Colo. GitEAT Falls, Montaka, August 1C, 1800. (Special correspondence State Kltuulican). The Great Falls of the Missouri were among the prom incnt natural wonders first discov cred by Lewis and Clark In their great exploring expedition to the then unknown northwest. At this point the famous expedition halted and passed a winter. Little could they have them imagined that in less than a hundred years men would be traversing this country, then so wild and remote from civilization in steam cars on half a dozen different lines of railway, or that the darkness of night would be driven out by electricity, generated by tho power of the very waters of tho great waters, whose roaring torrent here bids farewell to the mountains and thunders on to the sea,, or that this same power would bo driving tho wheels of man ufacturing industries, propelling cars and in many ways pointing to tin limited sources of wealth and pro gross. A transformation from tho center of a vast wilderness tc a busy manu facturing, mining and agricultural center is a vast stride even in these days of extraordinary feats. Yet all these things havo conic to pass. For three quarters of a century this great region remained in very much the same condition as Lewis and Clark found it. It was the undisputed home of tho Indian, tho bear and the buffalo. Even less than ten years ago countless herds of buffalo roamed at will over tho very spot whetc I now write, but the places that knew tlietn then will know tlicm no more forever. They are gone, never to re turn. The locomotive and the Win chester rille havo triumphed, if it be a triumph, and the buffalo is practi cally extinct. Five years ago the writer of this letter went into camp on the spot where now is located the magic city of Great Falls. Ho was then the guest of Hon. Paris Gibson, the promoter and founder of this wonderfully progressive city. How vividly lie portrayed what was soon to transpire in the way of building great enterprises, of utilizing the vast water power which nature had hero placed at the disposal of man, of developing the only mineral re sources and building railways, the writer well remembers. It was to him, undoubtedly, one of those few occasions when fortune prof fered him great wealth and the prof fer was refused. He then regarded the enthusiasm of his host as but the sincere expressions of a vlssionary, and many of his glowing predictions fell upon him "like a twice told talc in the ear of a drowsy man.' During our sojourn at that time wc were invited to take a stroll up Con trai avenue, anil the only way we had of finding tho avenue aforesaid was by four furrows plowed through ts center. Wc had gone but a short distance when a band of antelope at tracted our attention, as they gazed in evident wonderment at the freshly turned sou. Just at that time the population of Great Fails numbered, all told, 17, Mr. Gibson and myself and lo antelope. But the ancient doctrine of the survival of the filtesh has again been verefied. The antelopo arc gone and in their place have come, according to the census Just completed, 4,100 active, enterprising people. Probably no town in the new northwest, cer tainly no town or city In Montana has made so rapid and substantial pro gress in the same length of time, nnd all this has been accomplished with out the aid of brass bands or the usual accompaniments of westorn booms. No syndicate has been or ganized for advertising the city, but its steady and rapid progress may bo solely attributed first, to its wonder ful natural advantages, and secondly, to a disposition on the part of shrewd capitalists, as well as people of or dinary means to Invest their funds where these grab natural advantages would, of themselves and them, aid in securing large returns. It would bo cxtiemciy difficult In one- Idler to give your readers an adcynatc Idea of Great Falls and its surroundings. It is tho county seat of Gasconade county, and is located on the cast bank of tho Missouri river, whero tho ground rises grad ually from the river back to the high table land a milo or more away. Di rect across the river is the mouth of tho famous Sun river emptying into the Missouri. In plaiu view to the west, although, 80 miles away, ilscs tho main ranee of the Rockv moun tains, while to tho .south and cast a Di'. a distance: of from "fQ to sixty miles Uouso, may bo seen tho Hlghwood, tho Bear Pawjand tho Belt mountains. In the last named is located tho rich gold, silver and copper mining district of Neihart. To those mines a railroad from Great Falls Is now being built, and is, in fact, completed to within a distance of some twelve miles of tho mines. Stimulated by tho increased transportation facilities which this railway affords, new and rich discov cries are almost daily being made. Present indications point to this dis trict as being likely to equal in rich ncss and extent anything that has yet been discovered in Montana, not even excepting the great mines of Butte City and Granite mountain. Among tho more prominent and promising properties of this region arc tho "Moulton" and tho "Queen of tho Hills" on both of which a great deal of development work has been scientifically done. At a distance of three miles below Great Falls is located and in full operation, tho Great Falls smelter, while on the opposite side of the river the Boston and Montana smelter company is employing several hun drcd men night and day in the con struction of a copper smelter. This plant is to cast t.vio million of dollars and is to exceed in capacity the fa mous Anaconda works of a similar character. An electric railway and a telephone connect the smelters with the city. The city is lighted by elec tricity and supplied with water by means of the Holly system, taken from tho Missouri river above tho city, which, at this point, is soft and pure as a mountain brook. Two first-class daily newspapers with press dispatches enlighten tha people the Tribune and the Leader. The First National bank of Great Falls, with an authorized capital of one million dollars aud a paid in capital of 8250,000 is doing an im mense business, and has already made a financial record rarely equalled anywhere in the United States. Besides this bank there arc two private banks and another na tional bank now being organized. Immense quarries of the best qual ity of building stone, brown, red and white aro ouly five miles away. This stone is similar in color and quality to that used in tho construction ot the Masonic temple and tho Kittridgc building in Denver. Seven miles away arc the great Sand Coulee coal miles, which sup ply the city and smelters with an ex cellent article of bituminous coal The output from these mines are numbered now lo nearly ono thou sand cars per day, and is shipped to various points on the line of tho Great Northern railway in Jlontana and the Dakota. Four lines of railway arc now completed. Tho Great Northern was tho first to reach this point. Its president, J. J. Hill, with his quick perception, saw at a glanco, what nature had done here, and ho at once set about utilizing these for- cess. His faith in the possibilities of Great Falls is unlimited, his freight and passenger receipts at this point already exceed that of any other sta tion on his entire lino from St. Paul and rainncapolis to Helena, From this point this season have been shipped over the Great Northern up wards of two million pounds of wool. This is but one item of its immense, freight business of Great Falls, The Great Falls and Canada rail road will be formally opened foe business September 1. This Una will open up an entirely new country, and will bring closer business rela tions between Montanians and thou Canadian cousins across the border. While Great Falls has in all re spects equal, and in many respects superior advantages to her sister cities in Montana, she is not unduly puffed up. Conscious of her own great powers and resources, con scious of her beauty and attractive ness, she views with complaisance, the hercuiaen efforts of Helena and Butte City lo manufacture for them selves a boom. She loves them both and wishes them well. Tho former is fortunate In being only 9G miles away from this coming metropolis of the new northwest. Helena is con nected with Great Falls by the Great Northern railway, and many of her citizens havo already invested in Grcrl Falk real estate. Thowritcr would advise all excur sionists to Montana to sec Great Falls, only threo hours ride from Helena via tho Great Northern. There aro grand opportunities hero, for safe and prolitablo investment, and irrespective of ibis fact, tho gnnd scenery of Prlckley Pear Can yon and The Gate of tho mountains through which the railway passes be tween Helena and Great Falls, would alone repay the traveler for the Jour ncy.
