This year, Montana chooses a future. The turbulent winds of wide-open Western politics will prevail either to the left or to the right just as sure and strong as the spring Chinooks blow warm out the Rockies. Here in the Beaverhead Valley, the streets are empty, and it's high noon at a local meeting hall. The audience is sprinkled with cowboys--real cowboys--small-town merchants, mothers, children, a hunting guide, a few local politicians and some retirees.

The House on Tuesday approved the addition of 1.35 million acres to Montana's existing 3.4 million acres of wilderness areas. Rep. Ron Marlenee (R-Mont.) argued that the state already has enough wilderness area--enough to run a mile wide from Washington to Tokyo. The additional area, he said, was enough to extend that one-mile-wide strip from Tokyo to Moscow. The legislation was sent on to the Senate.

President Bush's nomination of Delos Cy Jamison, an aide to former Interior Secretary James G. Watt and an adviser to a ferociously anti-environmental member of Congress, as new chief of the Bureau of Land Management has dismayed environmentalists. They fear that Jamison, if approved by the Senate, will follow the line pursued the last eight years by current Director Robert F. Burford, a Colorado cattleman who is accused of starving the bureau's major environmental programs. Ranchers, meanwhile, praised the selection of the 39-year-old Montana native as a sign that the Bush Administration will advance Reagan-era policies that opened public lands to widespread private development.

The James Watt legacy lives on in spite of George Bush's campaign promise to put the very best people to work on his environmental agenda. Bush has made one outstanding appointment in William K. Reilly as chief of the Environmental Protection Agency. But his selections for other critical natural-resource jobs raise serious questions about the Administration's pledge to safeguard the nation's parks, wilderness and coastline. Two former aides to one-time Interior Secretary Watt have been chosen to positions overseeing 70% of the public lands.
