Synopsis: Excerpt from Contributions to the Historical Society of Montana, Vol. 2: With Its Transactions, Act of Incorporation, Constitution, Ordinances

It is apparent that public intertst in the events of our early history has with the increasing prosperity of the country been greatly aug~ mented. The organization Of the Society of Pioneers and the reminis cences of the early times which with increasing frequency appear in our newspapers, demonstrate the increasing solicitude of our people to know of this conquest of Montana from savage life to the humanities and amenities Of our present civilization. We cannot attribute the increase of this thirst for local episode solely to the greater prosperity of the country. Interest in the signal events of a people always increases as they recede. The flight of the years corrects the perspective, sets each circumstance in orderly array and relieves it of that prosaic quality which familiarity breeds. The actors in those early days did not them selves appreciate how vast a result they were achieving. They builded better than they knew. Engaged in a concrete struggle with savage life and rugged nature, their eager competitions led them away from the philosophic. The heroic, the poetic and sentimental aspects of the strife, as such struggles always do. To them it was a contention for farms, for herds, for gold, for office and for the gratification too Often of mean am bitions; but time has crystalized it all into the founding Of a State, the planting of a civilization.
