Coal is King. What is needed in this territory now, ,s much as anything else, is an abun dant supply of coking coal, with trans portation facilities, so that the numer ous furnaces of the territory can be sup plied with coke at a minimum of cost. At present charcoal is mostly used, as co,1W can only be had from Pennsyl ali~a, at an immliense cost for transpor tuition alone. At Bozeman, we under stand. the Union Pacific folks are about to begin the erection of a large number of (-okillg furnaces, and from that point will supply Butte and other mining (emulps. The business is certain to grow iuto all extensive one, if the success an ti.i~ated is attained, and the carrying jusiness alone for the U. P. railroad will 1, , big item . But the Northern Pacific manage 111nt have it in their power to double 1ivount the coke enterprise of their rivxal road if they see fit to take advan tage of the opportunity.

STOCK DEPARTM'EN T. (Contributions for this page respectfully solicited from stockmen and others.] THE TARI.s'F ON WOOLS. The first tilt on the tariff question in the house was brought on by Converse's motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill restoring the duty of 1867 on wool. A thirty minutes' debate follow ed, participated in by Converse, Mc Kinley, Hurd and others. The follow ing is the substance of Mr. Converse's remarks, which will be perused with interest by many of the readers of the RIVER PRESS: Converse said the pending question was not one whether the laboring people should be compelled to buy higher priced clothing. He would have liked if his colleagues had shown by facts and figures that the price of clothing was cheaper now than it had been prior to the passage of the bill. Statistics did not sustain the gentleman's rhetoric. The question was whether this great in dustry should be kept in the hands of American citizens or whether its profits should be divided amon...

The Goat Industry. Some experiments hav.. n . *i.e with Angora goats in this Great Basin, and we believe that wherever proper attention has been given to the business it has proved profitable. There are several flocks in Utah, .X .t~~o ad Wyoming, and yet in these Territories the great stock interests cente. in cattle anu sheep. Goats are niuch' hardi~er than sheep, and are said to be entirely free from the diseases which destroy so many sheep. Then, again, it is claimed their flesh makes better mutton, having something of the flavor of deer ,meet. Mohair is coming into greater demand and commanding better prices, while top pkjT of goats are in such .favor for the ltnifaetytre off gloves, rugs, orna merts of vailous ki4I, #Fj to !_ring . large prices.
