A connection with Kd-montoii would place the Canadian Northern in a position to reach Van couver and Seattle over the Hill system without the necessity of build-I ing the lino through to the Const. !

"I believe n great di-nl more will move this year than last in the country and must go think stockmen arc very well satisfied with tho situation, and 1 have hoard no special complaints." Another well-known ruilroad man, in conversation with a reporter, said: "Of course, the live stock industry is a big thing for tho country but its value lo transport at ion companies 'has always been over-estimated. A railroad must havo special cars lor stock, and the equipment is costly. The cars cannot bo used returning for othjtr freight, nor in dull seasons for any other purpose. Thoj are too filthy for ordinary freight, and are not const fueled properly for grain, coal or timber. "In addition, the stock alwuys comes with a rush. When tho market is up, every owner of a bunch of fleers iff anxious to move his stock tn inurkct. and whon tho quotations full off. you can't inovo a hoof. "This bunches the business und makes the ton mil" enormously expensive. Then tho stuff Is perishable, and requires so much attention thai tho damages paid for killed and injured runs up to a big sum, and wipes out the profits of tho business. We would rnther transport freight that can be handh-d all tho year mound, and economically, in nil kinds of cars.

The values that will apply to Chouteau County nre as follows: Miviv) herds of flock cattle are assessed at 9111 per head und not: classified, ivtruight bunches of steers are assessed at $2.1 and upwards per head, ami milch cows nt S'-.'i head.

The amendment is intendivl to make the size of the districts more elastic so that districts which ore (.parsely settled in parts or where a fuko or river cuts into it 'reducing iho hvid, shall not le deprived of the benefits of tho act. Another very important amendment to tho improvement district ordinance prnvidits that the financial statement of the district nhall be read at tiu; hour of nomination. Voting by ballot for supervisors is r.l*� provided for. A motion to provide that nim-rosidonts of n local improvement -district should not hold allien wns struck out.
