FRIDAY TMORNING. JAN. 29th:
T I-E CIT Y.
Alex. H. J3ettir. Locarl ~i (itor
From the Daily of Fri-lay.
REVENUE.-WVe believe that the com
mercial standing and character of a locahlity
or city is still judged somewhat by the
amount of revenue derived therefrom, and
that any distinction in this character is indi
cated by the difference in the amount of rev
enue so derived. If this aeeumptscn be true,
we may safely say, after considering the fol
lowing statement, that Helena is the commer
cial centre of all Montana. We were favored
through the kindness of Mr. Gilbert, the As
sessor of the Second Division of Montana, for
the following facts in regard to the revenue
of Montana for the month of December: Out
of $2,465 11 monthly revenue for the entire
Territory, Helena alone paid $2,043 33, lear
ing only $421 78 paid by the First and third
Divisions, comprising the remainder of the
Territory, including Virginia City. This
monthly revenue consists entirely of the Uni
ted States tax on actu1 sales and the United
states license for that month, and therefore
represents the business actually transacted
during that month. We also learn that there
are two bmains houses in this city that have
returned one half a million dollars worth of
sales from May till December, 1868. From
this little fragment of informatibn we can
conidently assert that Helena is not dead
neither does she sleep.
Co.AL.-Mr. O'Bannon yesterday re
ceared a load of bituminous coal from the
mines on the Dearborn. He informs us that
it burns superior to any before brought to the
city. A series of experiments were per
formed for the purpose of testing its beating
properties and its adaptability for blacksmith
ing purposes, which were highly satisfactory.
Among them, horse shoes were made from
scrape of iron in quicker time than by char
coal. The dimcult process t * welding iron
and steel was accomplished, which evidences
the intense beat that may be generated from
it. Those who are most conversant with its
use say that one bushel of it is equal to four
bushels of charcoal. We soon expect to see
huge loads of coal brought to the city to
take the place of charcoal, the making of
which is terribly destructive to the valuable
timber of the Territory.
MissoLI.A.-From Mr. Junius (I.
Sanders, who has just returned from an ex
tended trip through this portion of our Ter
ritory, we learn, among other things, that a
new bridge has been almost completed across
the Hellgate river, opposite Missoula Mills,
at a cost of over $5,000. On the 4th of Jan.
a Mr. Smith, while out hunting near Mis,
soula Mill, accidentally shot himself through
the arm with his rife. The wound was not
very serious as it proved, but fora time many
cars were entertained for the safety of this
member of his anatomical family. Tnesnow
in the country through which Mr. Sanders
traveled averaged a foot deep, but the weather
was very pleasant
CHIEF JrvrTICE*S DEPARTURE.-('hief
Justice H. I. Warren leaves tbus morning for
Quincy, Ill., where his family are at present.
He intends to return in March. Tb, Jurlge
has made a large circle of friends ana adrnir
ers since his arrmval in the Territory. All of
Montana concede that be is an excellent
Judge-fair, honest and impartial- He ranks
very high as a jurist, and has the entire con
fidence of our whole people in his fitness for
tbe ofoe he holds.
The above notice we fad in the Democrat,
Lf Virginia City, which we endorse. Judge
Warren has won many warm personal friends
in Helena, who joun with as n expreening the
best wishes for a pleasant trip and safe return
DR. MITt HEL, we are glad to learn, is
doing very well. The bleeding has been
.topped, and no further fears are entertained
of has recovery. We commend the remarks
of the Gasette in its last issue touching the
almost criminal practice of throwing broken
bottles, and such other dangerous articles,
upon our streets, and also think that our po
lice regulations should be such as to restramn
persons who commit such acts.
'Ioonas.-We noticed several loads of
goods being shipped to dilerent parts of the
Territory yetteiay. It looked refreshing af
ter the quiet of the past few days. Our mer
chants are amtiipatiog a brisk trade the re
mainder of the month.
DEPARTED.-George M. Piasey. Eeq.,
Manager of the "Measta Post Publishing
Company," left on last coach for the States.
to be absent during the remainder of the
Frem seainday'a Daily.
TRiPizT.-The natural equllibrium'
of or cty life was distrbed coaierabl b
the sam nsmsmt, yesterday saorag, that
Mn. Bdistry, wife of Mr. Samuel hiands
toy, remiding a em edey r etha gives
irth wtrples. lme are the ba eaaIs
we bes e a Meetams, sed are another eel
deoce that time alone is needed to make
Montana peerless as a producing country.
We are informed by those who have given
much thought to this subject, that such af
fairs are unusual, sad are generally conmidered
evidences of the superiority of the country
in which they occur. These triplets consist en
tirely of daughters. We understand that they
are beautiful childre, bright as morning stars
and lovely as summer roses. Wei;hed tn the
balance, they were found wanting-eleven
pounds of avoirdupos to hold them
level when dressed lo reception. They
average three pounds. The happy mother
and her three tender daughters are doiRg very
finely. We most confess that we are not at
home upon this subject, and conscious of our
ignorance and innocence, we sealise our awk
wardness and acknowledge oure rof tmaking
some mistake. We learn that misfortune
has laid its heavy hand upon this family, and
that they are unprepared to fully provide for
these tiny "Three Graces; " but some of our
good ladies took the matter is head, and
sought the purchase of cotton, wool
and worsted comforts for the strangers, but
Messrs. Tootle, Leech A Co., with their ac
customed generosity and public spint, dona
ted the entire purchse to thene tender leaves
of hope. As far as we understand the afair,
we extend our hearty congratulastoin to the
father and mother, and express the ardent
hope that these beautiful buds of humanity
may grow in loveliness, develope into useful
ness, and be to their parents, through all
time. a consolation and a Pride.
(COL. SANDERS..-Tlis morning's coach
took from us, among other citieans, Colonel
Wilbur F. Sanders, one of Montana's most
d.itinguished citizens, who goes hence to
Washington, where he will spend the winter.
Colonel Sanders' naue is a household word
through the length and breadth of this Ter
ritory, as the foremost champion of the great
and eternal principles of republican institu
tions, the leader of a party which though a
minority in numbers, is an imperial majority,
in intelligence, a prty that fed and nourished
upon moral influences and great principles is
destined to grow and strengthen, until it shall
place Montana redeemed, a pure and untainted
virgin among the Sisterhood of States. He is
the recognized exponent of the republicanism
ot Montana, and sever yet has he proved un
faithful to the sacred trust, or his voice grown
weak in pruclaiming those eternal truths that
are dear to every lover of free institutions,
impartial justice and unsullied honor. While
we regret hia departure, we are proud that our
young Territory can fu-nish such an able rep
resentative as the one that now goes forth,
JAMES %W. WHITLATCHI popularly
known throughout the States as the "Quartz
King of Montana," goes per same convey
ance on a mission that is fraught with pros
perity to our Territory. The beckoning fin
ger of pleasure lures him not from among
these moeatains to measure the sumshine of
life with her giddy votaries. A quarts mill
is needed upon the Park mine. Five inclined
planes are sinking deep into the vitals of the
mine, and through which comes up quarts
plethoric with golden treasure, and the crash
ing mutt soon commence which will add new
activity to the viciaity of Unionville. Mr.
Whitlatch will proceed immediately to Chi
cago and oversee the construction of a thirty
stamp quartz mill, furnished with all the nm
provements that ~ngenuity and experience
suggest, and ship it early In the spring. It
will be pst up at the Eagle Works of Chicago
which have already become famous in this
branch of machinery. It is his intention to
return as soon as it is finished and commence
the erection of a building which will be com
pleted when the mill arrives. Those who are
acquainted with Jim's indomitable energy
gy sad pesevereace wall have no doubts of
his succes in this enterpr.e.
COMME.DATORY.-About the 7th day
of January, Gov Pollinger and C. A. Broad
water while on their way to Beaton, overtoqL
a man by the name of Nelson Breman, who
had shattered his arm frightfully by the acci
dental discharge of a Henry ride. Mr. Pol
linger informed the commandant at Fort
Shaw of the man's condition and situation,
who sent an ambulance and had him conveyed
to the hospital of the Fort, and put in charge
of Dr. Hits. Mr. Breman informed the
doctor that be was destitute of friends and
money, but notwithstanding this, the doctor
bestowed upon the poor sufferer all the atten
tion and service of watchful skill and medi
cal science from that moment until the pres
ent time. The result as the man who would
have died, is now restored to health and his
arm saved. All this has been done without
hope or expectation of reward or pay, for
none could be expected. We are happy to
record this evidene-e of a generous philan
thropy, warm heart and manly attributes
which speal eloquently in behalf of the ben
efactor and add honor even to a mountain
QUARlTZ PURCHIIASE.-. We learn from
reliable authority that John Potter, Esq.,
yesterday concluded the purchase cf 200 feet
on the Park quarts lode. The amount paid
we did not learn, but, from the high reputa
tion which this lode sustains among miners
and quartz experts, it must have been a good
round sum. It is Mr. Potte* intention to
immediately proceed with vi orous develop
men t of his interest, and place suflicient
quarts upon the surface to commence crush
ing early in the spring. Success, we say, to
this enterprise of Mr. Potter, which, while it
may result in a fortune to him, will increase
the prosperity of the Territory, as all such
mining operatioes cannot fail in doing.
F.RA..K TAYIA), of the wholesale firm
of Taylor, Thompson & Co., al.o left "the
Eastern lands to see." Mr. Taylor will speed
:hs winter in transacting important buntnes.
comeected with the extensive interests over
which their businehs operations extend, and
secure a large stock ot merchandise for the
summer trade. No Afir stands higher is the
West than this one which Mr. Taylor repre
seats, and it has been the re~lt of a method
of buasoiee which combines honesty, ibe-:
rality and eagacity. Mr. Taylor has our
best wishes for his saeces in whaever he
undertakes while East, and a safe return.
BoZEMAN.-.Wa lson & Rich's teams ar

grain and country produce, which was dis

From the Daily of Monday.
DWElt LODGE ITEMgt.-The lion. \Val
ter B. Dance upon his arrival at his home in
Deer Lodge City, was honored with a grand
reception. The citisens assembled at his resi
dence and complimented the Judge with a
serenade. The company were "all took in"
and done for by the Judge, who eatended to
all. that lavish hoepitality which springs
from a big, warm heart. The night was spent
in an exchange of social congratulations and
thanks; the whole well ufoistened with the
"overlowing cups.".... Maj. B. R. Ewell has

I shall endeavor to procre ans addtional ap

Swallow's mill is now operating on quartz

greatest confidence felt in the success of this
mill, and we are confidmnt that the confidence
is fully backed up when it rests upon ability,
experience and judgment, bucb as Professor
Swallow possesses....The Pittsburg & Mon

SKATING RINK.-Each suceedling day
this fashionable place of resort gains new
devotees who are more or less skilled in one
of the most graceful amusements that Pleas
ure ever extended to beguile the waking hours
of her most devoted votrses. Saturday af
ternoons are set apart tor the use of the school
children and their parents, and we pleased
to see the large park filled with these little
ones, who were by this most beneficial exer
cise adding health, strength and beauty to
their forms, and acquiring that grace, with
out which the lady and gentleman of the
present day are but half educated, and which
so adorns life that charms, forever unheeded
to others, are unfolded and cast a fragrance
about advancing years that robs existence of
its dreariness. We are in favor of all the
children being allowed to skate. It is excr
cise and it is harmless pleasure. The recrea
tion from the long studying hours of the
week can have but a beneficial effect. This
skating rink of Mr. Roberts' offers superior
facilities for indulging in this amrusement.
Everything connected with the establishment
is pleasing. Each skater respects We place,

TOM. B. \W EADr, Esq., the Local editor

retires from the Local tripod as gracefully as
he takes a joke. Tom and we have thrown
bad grammar and worse rhetoric at each other
for some time and both "still live." We are
sincere when we express our regrets at Mr.
Wade's withdrawal from the editorial fa:iily,
for we have ever found him. socially, the
prince of gentlemen and a warm friend, plro
fessionally, an able versatile and ple,-ing
writer. It Is true, our skirmtabin; has
some times been warm, but the taint -.f ill
fee!ing or malice has never influenced our
feeble pen in these encounters. In billin;

commend him as a generous friend, accom

TEN MILE MINING LOMPANY.-WVe
call the attention of our citizens to the no
tice published in another column, calling for
a miner's meeting of all those owning claims
in Ten Mile district, to be held on discovery
claim, Saturday, Jan. 30th, 1869, at 2 p. m.,
for the purpose of making arrangements to
work said mines. Our time and space will
not permit us in this isue doing justice
to this great enterprise in process of inaugur
ation in this district, but we will say that a
shaft has been sunk on discovery claim by the
"Ten Mile Mining Company" some 23 feet,
and a gravel has been reached which contains
gold to the prospects of ten cents to a pan.
This Gold is of a course nature, specimens of
which can be seen at the Kiyus. This com

business men, among which is Colonel M. A.
