0c '' m ddfl R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. W. H. . SUTHIERLIN, Assistant Editor. THURSDAY, MARC.t 11, 1880. TIIE dispatches are loaded down with po litical news, an evidence that there is a great deal of button-holeing and wire-pulling Bo ing on all over the East. In the Republi can field there are thrc e strong candidates, Secretary Sherman, Senator Blaine and Gen. Grant. It seems no longer a ques tion but Gen. Ghant will accept the nomina tion for the third term. At leist we may say that the more news of his strength in the conventions, the more certain are all that he will accept. lie is said to have been surprised on hearing the result of the Penn sylvania covention, and his silence is an as surance that he wants the office. Blaine, it seems, has the most frie.uds among the masses, but thus tar it appears that the workers for Grant have out generaled him. It is thought that Illinois has the casting wvote, that Grant cannot get the nomination -without that state, and the latest dispat...

IN the legislature of California, says the Sacramento Agriculturist, a bill has been introduced in reference to the improvement of stock. It requires that horses, bulls or jacks for breeding purposes shall take out license and record to be kept by the tax col lector in an open book. If the bill should pass we will give it in full as we consider it a good and a wise one and one calculated to prevent misreprpresentation and fraud and one that will certainly have its desired ef fect, the improvement of stock. The Rural Pres says the main provisions of the bill is to the ellect that those who keep a jack, bull or stallion, and who per mit the same to be used for the purpose of propagation for hire shall take out licenses, recording distinctly the name, age, pedi gree and classification of each animal. This record shall be open to public inspection. 'The sums realized from the licenses issued are to be paid into a fund to be known as the "Stock Breeders' Fund." Tihe Secreta ry of State, ...

IT is said that if soda or saleratus be plac ed upon a burn as soon as the burning takes place, pain will be allayed and no scar will be left. IT is estimated, by those in position to know, that mnore miles of railroad will be built during 1880 in this country than during any year before. About 9.000 miles of new road are already unlder contract. AN improvenement in tags has bee patented by Mr. Clarence E. Sacker, of Garden Prai rie, Ill.

Sri. R. N. SUTIIERLIN, Editor. W. H. SUTHIERLIN, Assistant Editor. THUIRSDAY, MARCH 18, 1880. THE address of Hon. R. S. Ford, presi dent of the Stock-Growers' association, has called forth some discussion upon the sub ject of the capabilities of Montana ranges. Mr. Ford thinks that ten years hence our butchers will depend on corn-fed beef from the states to supply the markets of late win ter and early spring, and the Helena Inde pendent acting upon the impulse of the mo ment draws the deduction from the Ford figures that our ranges will be taxed to their fullest capacity in five years, but later concludes that it has erred and understated perhaps one-half. Nothing is more evident to he who has given the subject his atten tion than that the time will come when the ranges of Montana will be taxed to their fullest capacity ; but as we have said before, .re scarcely expect to live to see that day, .and we never expect to see our markets ..supplied with states-fed beef, even though .,we ...

Would the use of the land cost ..e anything ; and can I buy cattle in Mon ann, enough to start a herd, at a reasonable price? Is there any danger of Indians? Wlhat is the least amount of capital that would be advisable to start with? If you can give mne any information concerning the cattle business I shall be greatly indebted to Pnswter._l'he are are good locations for cattle-raisilg in every part of Montana.

nsbaund a R. N. SUTHERLIN, Editor. W. i. SUTHIERLIN, Assistant Editor. THURSDAY, MARCH 25, 1880. Now that that great subjugator of the wilderness and equalizer of sections,the rail road, has crossed our border and bids fair to penetrate the very heart of the territory by harvest time some speculation very naturally arises as to what etect it is to have upon the labor market. Are the wages of the country to be lowered to the beggardly salaries of the states ? or will our people riseabove the :endency of the times and continue in the same liberal spirit of to day ? Unquestionably the latter would be beat for the country. The, laboring class do not en mass money any faster when wa ges are high than when low, since there is '.a feeling of recklessness prevailing in every community where such a state of affairs ex ist, but they have a much better living, .enrjoy more of this world's goods, thereby incrteasing the demand and creating a healthy current throughout every branch of ..trade, W...

_ ive 4/o!h. THE plentiful rainfall along the western coast which insures a good grass crop; the advance in the price of wool and corres ponding rise in the price sheep, is an assur ance that there will be but few, if any, sheep driven into the territory the comning sum mer. In one sense this is a detriment to Montana, while in another it may be term ed a blessing. It is the new importations from year to year that have caused the sheep owners so much trouble, by the inoc ulation of their flocks. While the lull in sheep driving prevails, the owners of dis eased flocks will have a good opportuuity for cleansing them, and with the sheep of the country healthy and entirely clear of scab, there will then be reasonable excuse for the ~ ool-growers to dictate and enforce a good law for the government of drovers which will protect their flocks.
