i-'rr Saturday s Daily.
''IIA.\sNKs.lVINi. DAY.-This day was
tery generally observed by our citizens. A
large number of the buslneas houses were
jiosed. Most every one took some care in
the matter of dress, and more black coats,
plug hats and canes were sported than we
have seen before this year, and the lavish dis
play of Mason': Poli.-h was as great as the ev'
idences of a generous use of soap, water and
hair oil was unmistakeable. In the morning
services were held in the M. E. Church, and
the large gathering which assembled listencd
with evident satisfaction, and we trust much
profit, to an eloquent -ermon by Rev. Mr.
Comfort, the pastor. In the afternoon sev
eral dinner pasi tles gathered around the social
board the wit, youth and beauty of the me
tropolis. The day taken alltogether was
spent in a Chri-tian and refined manner, that
would have done credit to the Pilgrim Fath

in which tu, complete its duties. The pro
gress reported by the committee was in every
way satisfactory and gives an as.uraune that
the association will be able to procure a li

The room committee reported that it had
not been able to pror.ire suitable rooms,
whereupon the committees report was re
ceived, it discharged, and the rear room of
the Whitlach building, formerly the press
room of the Helena lierald, was secured for
the use of the association.
A committee of four, consisting of Messrs.
Hedges, Simonton, Douglas and Osborne, was
appointed to prepare the rooms for the use
of the association.
The dispatch of Mr. Thomas E. Tutt, do
nating $CO0, was real.

('11t .MASEltO & CIIADWJ(sK.-.e give
to the public this morning the card of a new
Law Firm, which we take pleasure in saying
forms a combination of legal lore, ability,
and skill rarely excelled even in the Eastern
States. Mr. Chumasero won a reputation
not only in Montana, but in the metropolis
of New York State, that should satisfy the
!uost ambitions for legal fame. Mr. Chad
wick finished his legal instruction in the
office of the Attorney General of New York
State, and for a long season performed all the
intricate duties of that responsible position.
Ever since becoming a citisen of Montana he
has stood among the first at the Bar, and we
are not disparaging when we say he is one of
the first lawyers in this Territory. This irm
have the be-t law library perhaps in the
West, and it is a law irm of which Montana
may justly feel proud.
SINGING SCiJOoL..-The first session
of Jessee Armitage's singing school, which
took place last evening, was, in every re
spect, far more satisfactory than was anticc
pated. The attendance war large, and thee
present manifested that deep inteLst is the
subject which is a sure indication of success.
This is certainly a rare opportunity to ac
quire a knowledge of the science of music
.mnd a perfection in the art of melody that
should not be lost. The class which is al
ready formed meets every Friday evensag in
the basement of the Meshodist Episcopal
Church. The children's class meets every
Saturday afternoom at two o'clock. A suf

MATCaHa.-Considerable stir was made'
yesterday in this article, miles being made as
high as $.4.00 per grose. Hal3 a dosen el.
grams were immediately seat to Salt Lake, or
dering shipments of matches by coach, our
merchants this year being determined not to
pay the exorbitant prices so often reached by
this insigniScant but very necessary article.
A comparison of prices during the years
1863-4-5-4 show an average price reached do
ring t~-~ winters of $58.00 per gross. It is
another evidence of the great benet to be
derived from the railroad that when, as in
the present season, matches are controlled by
one or two parties at a speculation, that by
means of the telegram and coach the exorbi
tant figures of former years cannot prevail
FOR THE STATEs.-Sunday morning,
C. S. Hursh, E&q., of the firm of Walcott A
Hursh, leaves for the States, to be gone du
ring the winter months and return in the
spring. Mr. Hursh, who is a pioneer in Mon
tana, has won a high reputation for rare
business qualifications, which is indicated by
his success. He is a universal favorite and
posse,-es those qualities in an eminent de
gree which so truly enables a man to be a
good citizen and a credit to Montana-ener
gy, ~hrewdness and honesty. We hope to wel
come his coming before the first boat.
PEI.aoNAL.-- %e have pleasure in nor
ting the presence in Helena and our sanctum
of Gen. Lester S. Wilson and Mr. Rich, both
of the flourishing village of Bozeman, in the
Garden Valley. The General looks vigorous;
we wi-h he weighed a ton. Five thousand
good Republicans look to him and Mr. Geo.
W. \Wentworth, of Missoula, for valiant ser
vice in the Fifth Legislative Assmbly of
Montana, and believe their faith well founded.
Alcr\.lI.s.-The coach of yesterday
brought to our city Thos. Hoopes, Win.
Morris and P. A. Largley, Esqc . all; three
most worthy burghers of. the ancient capital,
who journey into foreign lands to gather
tales of gold and beauty with which to be

TER:I.ING. -Frol1 Mr. Ilyde, we learn
that Sterling is improving wonderfully in
prospects. Capt. Maltby is running the
the quartz mill belonging to the N. Y. & M.
M. D. Co. mill steady, with very satisfac
tory results. Other mining operations are in
contemplation and are being undertaken,
which will materially add to the prosperity
of this dietrict.
Liq.oIl SEIZZRE.-A detachmnent of
the 13th, from Fort Shaw, under command
of Capt. Pratt, on last Sunday, seized all the
spirituous liquors in possession of the mer
chants at Fort Benton, and will take it in
charge. This was, of course, in pursuance of

(iltAND FAREWELL PRIESENTATION
A~oD BaaqarT.-There is no portion of "God's
Green Earth" where true merit and those fin
er qualities which distinguish to a certain
extent man from the brute creation, are as
properly appreciated and highly rewarded as
in Helena. It is one of the most beautiful
customs of our people to testify that regard
by proper testimonials as will best typify
these attributes, the possession of which exe
cites admiration. It was in pursuance of
this delightful usage that a large and highly
intelligent gathering met at the sales rooms
of C. S. Hursh, E.q., of the firm of Walcott
& Hursh last Sateuday evening, just prior to
his final departure to the States, for the pur
pzse of presenting to him a testimonial of
their regard and appreciation. The assembly
comprised the commercial monarchs of Hele
na,guests from our sister cities, representatives
of the Materia Medica,Bar,Pres and other pro
fessions, as select, honorable and honest.
After the room had been brilliantly illumin.
ated by a lavish display and consumption of
candles and matches, the thrilling ceremonies
of the evening were introduced by Mr. Ben.
Stickney being conducted to the platform,
constructed of empty candle boxes, and in a
thrilling, eloquent and touching manner, ex-1
pressed the sentiments of that interesting col
lection of friends as follows. "Mr. Hursh,
unaccustomed to public speaking, as you will
notice, and everely laboring under a mighty
big bad cold, I cannot embrace the present
opportunity, without returning thanks to the
pubUc for the liberal patronage bestowed up
on me since coming amongst you. and trust
that so lucrative a busines will be continued
in the future. My friend before me, Mr.
lrshb, is known to you all as a most liberal
cous (load and continued applause.) A man
gentlemen, that gentlemen, has done more to
improve the condition of our side walks and
carrying greenbacks to the First National
Bank, than any merchant in Heleas. Gentle
men, I ask you, would be whom we have met
to honor, oppreem a poor sick woman with
her olfpriag. in her arms, attacked with the
measle? Would he, I ask, throttle the invsi
ble point of ivisbility sand segrogat. it!
Would be try to corral an atom lastie in
the etherial realm of spae antd sl it for
asaed fruit? (Never.) Who, amongst as,
Would for a moment think be would sell the
whittled aend of nothing for AliM Beas,

c..ery to a mere.ant iSa Motama-.obd.ty,
shrewmeln, enegy, hoesety and meemaem, I
presentyou with this jck-knalfe. Pleae ao
cept it - an evidence of oar regard sad hr
its intrisic value. [ramulteom applause,
during which the knife was pased to the far
ored one.] Mr. Harsh, imitating most suc
cessfully the ecoentricities of the chameleon,
which changes its spots eight times per se*
ond, aid : "Mr. Stickney and gentlemen, I
am like Grant, I don't speak, but only take
Ithings. 1 appreciate this magailceot gift;
I have labored hard to gain my present high
reputation, and shall strive earnestly to sus
tain it. I thank you, gentlemen, for this
present, sand I shall ever cherish it, and when
I am "canned" I will transmit it to my poster
ity as a memento of their darling papa."
[Emotional sighs and sobs and the splashing
of tears on the Boor.] The jack-knife, which
was about eighteen inches long, was a splendid
epecimen of catlery, the handle being maJe
of native mahogony, ricbhy mounted with
gilt-beeded nail, extracted from Hurshs'
trunk. The blade being of delicately tempered
hoop-iron, was susceptible of a high polish.
On one side was inscribed, "To C. S. HIrsh,
Esq.; on the reverse, "To the Meanest Man
in Montana," and the family seal of the
Hu~shs', "I X L " It reflected great credit,
not only on the skill displayed by the arti
ficer but on the generosity that prompted such
a munificent gift. At the same tame an ele
gantly worked brass collar was handed to Mr.
Hursh, to be presented to E. B. Ebert, now
in St. Louis, on which was engraved, "To the
Meanest Man out of Montana." The exhu
berant emotions of the friends of the drift
ing darling were now "soothed," not by sweet
worc's, but with golden nectar distilled under
sunny skies on vine-clad slopes by beauty's
hands-(it was wine.) Mr. Hrehb. with that
sumptuous hospitality which he extends even
to his best friends, and which has well nigh
wrecked his once princely fortune, set out for
the company a splendid lunch, consisting of
fifteen kegs of pickled herrings, upon which
had accumulated the age of some four sum
mere, the saltness of which rivalled Lot's wife,
and rich in the perfume of an unhealthy egg.
This lavish display produced a profound
sensation, and later in the evening, the de
licious viands were discussed. Mr. Plant pro
posed the health of the host, to which Mr
Harsh responded by again urging the boy.
not to stand so far back, but to come up,
and have some lunch. A sentiment to theb
press was responded to by the representative
of Ronan proclivities, who proposed to take
another herring, which he did and subsided
by Mr. S. M. Hall, whose health was then
drank as the "self-riser." Mr. Hall respond
ed by "rising" and moving farther from the
combination of "Press in herring." The suc
ces of this trip of Wells, Fargo & Co. was
proposed; Dick took wine in behalf of the
c.ompany. Elegant speeches were made by
Messrs. Caldwell, Plant, Miller, Hagadorn'
Langhorn, Daiidson, Sherwood, Murphy and
others, which added to the illumination.
The brass band was brought forward and per
formed the aria of "One I'd Riley" from the
opera of "Norwood." This was repeated du
ring the evening. As a last touching tribute.
the whole company formed a ring around
Mr. Hurst and performed that most eccentric
evolution, the can can, under management
of Messrs. Plant, Stickney and Ware, who
had passed a course of instruction among
the Crow-feet. The rumbling of the ap
proaching coach admonished the assembly
if they had tears, to shed them now. A
torchlight procession was formed, headed by
the band, which c.,nducted Mr. Harsh and
his baggage, consisting of the jack-knare.
a certificate and acknowledgment of hib hii tri.
and a turned paper collar, through the prii,
cipal streets to the coach, and saw hirl
leave, followed by the genuine regrets, re
spects and best wishes of his army of ,or
rowing friends, who dispersed to their e.-.o
ral homes, bearing the fragrant odor of ,oi~l
herring about their clothes and the stom
ach ache in their heads, to remind them of
one of the best and jolliest times in Montana
