Hon. A. J. McLean, minister of pub- lic works. Is In Ihe cily today after having made a lour o! son miles in Ibe section southeast of Ihe city, tra- velling through Ihc Manylieiries. Pen- dent d'Oriellc and One-Ten districts. To tho Herald he salil that the spirit of luc people in the drought dis- tricts, is admirable. They aro busy ploughing their lanti and preparing to seed a crop nexl year if soil condl- Uons. In .the spring warrant the out- lay, and they "re inspired Ity a spirit of slick-to-it which made a great im- pression on the m'uusler. "And the lasl llmig they want is liarity. They don't want relief in hat form. They want work so that hey may ba able to earn enough to :ecu them through the winter. We arc. as a result, slartpis? road work in he district, 'and any fanner who needs work will be able to set it." Mr. McLean said that the people of he districts through which he trav- resented very much the state- ment appearing in some S. pacers that they were living on two meals a day and that they ncre in a desti- tute condition. That-is not so. and they take a certain satisfaction out of tho fact that conditions in Montana are worse, and-thai tho slate legisla- tiire Is considering a plan ut the pres- ent time to issue bonds for relief. Not more than 20 people in all the district are really In, a bad plight, and kind neighbors are helping them until re- lief in Ihe form of work provided bs the government is secured. -There are .some crops in the south- .easl portion of the province, and the Tanners are busy harvesting these. Some, 20 bushel crops were .seen in the' Mauyberries district and a large number of farmers will get their seed at leaal back.
