Within^half an hour after the death of the heir^apparent lVlucess hagmar was betrothed^to his younger brother, the present czar,^whom she married in 1111,
Accordingto a recent interview with^Hon. (ieorge \. V Kathrop, who resigned^the KuHsittn mission a few months ago,^there has been a great deal of exaggera^^tion In the newspapers ahoiit the perils^to which the czar is exposed and the^means he takes to avoid assassination^The czar, according to Mr. liiithrop,^drives and walks about the capital very^much the same as any other man of^wealth and rank would, and so far as^outward appearances Indicate takes no^pains to keep out of tfie reach of nihilis^^tic hiillets. It is ojiite possible that the^strict ceiconhip which ttie ltussUu au^^thorities maintain over correspondence^from that country lias served to stimu^^late the Imagination of newspaper^writer In other capitals of Kurope. The^recent attempt to wreck the royal train^shows, however, that the king hUNiness^In Itussia has Us dangers as well as its^pleasures.
BOILERINSPECTION.^The Itentou Klver Tress oppose* the^enactment of the boiler-inspection bill^introduced |m| week In the upper bmm^of the legislative assembly. ^We hope^the bill may be permitted to die right^where it is,^ says the I'rem. ^There Is 110^call for it. There has been no 'blowing^up'of steam works in the territory, no^destruction of properly or loss of lift*^consequent upon the reckless or ignor^^ant management of steam boilers that^VMM Mggwfl the propriety of such a^measure.^ The Tress' memory is defec^tlve. It Is not ten weeks since the ex^^plosion of a boiler at the It uton A Mon^tana company's Colusa concentrator, in^Meaderville, killed four unMi.and MatM*^ploding holler was one that would have^been condemned by a competent inspec^^tor. The hill in QiNtftM is absolutely^needed as a protection to life and proper^^ty. Not only should boilers be subject to^inspection, but those having charge of^boilers should be put through a rigid ex^^amination to establish their capability^for the duty devolved upon them. Men^Ignorant of the rule* governiugthe oper^^ation of steam boilers should not be in^position where their Incompetence con^^stitutes a menace to everyone else about^the premises.
SoMKpeople have queer ideas of what^constitutes a joke. Two persons at Tied-^luont. S. t\, went to a clergyman ami^had finn perform the marriage ceremony^for them, and after h ^ had caused pub^^lication of th^ alleged marriage to be^made lu the local papers, it came^out that both the contracting parties^were men, who had taken part in the^eeremouy ^just for a lark.^ A diagram^Is necessary to an understanding of the
NkwMkmiuUs Kitness for State^^hood Sure to be Republican^ is the^heading of an article in ttie Chicago^Inter Ocean. The last clause of the^heading is, to the mind of the really^good party organ, sufficient evidence of^(he preceding one. No other argument^is needed.
Col.Klliott K. Shkpakp, whose able^editorials in the New York Mail and Kx^preaa are preceded by a fresh text of
scriptureevery day, addreseed a meeting^of Methodist clergymen in New York oti^Monday, whom he criticised for indiffer^^ence to the subject of Sunday observ^^ance. The truly good colonel was then^taken In hand hy one of the clergymen,^who expressed his high appreciation of^the scripture t*-xts and moral essays he^found in the Mall and Kxpress, butasked^how the mil tor could permit so much of^the space in his valuable publication to^be devoted to the reports of horse-races.^The religious editor's reply was ingen^^ious If not entirely Ingenuous. He pub^^lished a sporting column, he said, in the^Interest of Christianity. Hy publishing^Hporting news he thought he could in^duee spur lug men to buy his p iper and^read the sermons and moral editorials^which appeared in other columns. ^'ol.^Mieparddid not make this explanation^very glibly, and when he sat down no^one applauded.
THEbAMOAN AFFAIR^The correspondence of Secretary Whit^^ney regarding the ditlicultleH ill the^South Tacillc which is published on the^first page of this paper to day, shows^that that othcial is and has been fully^alive to the possibilities of the occasion.^He ha-, as far as possible, prepared for a^demonstration which shall convince Ger^^many that this nation Is not to be^trilled with, and has only delayed the^dispatch if a squadron to BftSBSJa be^^cause of the dilaloriness on the part of^the state department in Indicating what^the policy of this government Is to he.^Mr. Whitney has, however, directed ves^sels now stationed at San Kranclsco to^be preared to sail Immediately upon re^ceipt of Him The --tat* department,^according to the SlswffteCaMS, lias n reived^later ollicial advices from ^amoa than
haveyet In made public. th* tenor of
whichmay be inferred from the lan^^guage of the di-patch, which speaks of^^the disturbance of the 1Mb ultimo, in^which so many Germans were killed and^wounded by natives under the leader^ship of an alleged American citizen^named Klein.^ Secretary liayanl need^have no doubt as to the citizenship of^Klein, who is widely known in newspa^^per circles in Chicago, St. Louis, Denver^and San Kraneisco. Klein's account of^the light published in the San Francisco^Kxamir.er indicates that he in no man^uer assumed the leadership of the native^party, although he acted as Interpreter^for Mataafa's men, with whom he was^thrown in his legitimate efforts to secure^news. His account of the Insults put^op hi the American Hag hy the tieruiaus^is circumstantial and. doubtless, strictly^truthful. Mr. Hayard should lose no^time in demanding a full explanation^from the her m u government.
\iimiimi.G'KiiKAKiu,commandant at the^IiriM^klyu navy yard, said to a reporter,^the other day, that In the event of war^between the I'litUM States and Germany^growing out of the Samoan controversy^th * conllict would be a naval affair ex^clusively. He said: ^We have been mak^^ing a great many improvements in our^navy, but it does not in any way com^pare with ttiat of Germany, of course.^Hut she would be at a disadvantage if^she attempted to back up her claim to^Samoa on account of the great distance^her vessels would have to go. It VMM^not take the ( nlted States very long to^get men together and hurry them acrosN^the continent and embark them for^Samoa, We have vessels enough for^transports and could land a big force on^the island long before Germany could get^there. That would be the seat of war.^Karthworks and various defences could^be thorwn up. so ttiat our forces could^hold the island even if Germany saw tit^to send over some of tier best vessels ^^The admiral considered the country safe^against any invasion Germany or any^other power might undertake.
WhartonHaukkk. the Philadelphia^banker whose connection with the Chi^^nese-American telegraph and banking^scheme lias been recently set forth in the^columns of the Inuktendknt, Is quoted^as saying:
Foreight years 1 labored earnestly and^persistently for the result that was attain^cd at Chicago last Milliliter. Of course, if 1^am not isjousniiiBSl now, 1 know 1 never^will Ih^. II I am tea appointed secretary^of ttie treasury I am out or politics forever^and completely.
Kveryoneknows that Mr. Barker was^one of the largest contributors to the^republican corruption fund, and every^one will know, if he is appointed secre^^tary of the treasury, that it sfl for ^valu e^received.^ There are so many more ca^^pable men for the positiou to which he^apires, and who have been trained In^the school of experience, that the coun^^try will Is* surprised if Mr. Harker Is^given the treasury portfolio.
Tiikgrowth of the banking business^of Ib letia Is shown in a striking light by^the history of the Kirst Natloual, printed^in another part of this paper. This iu-^stitution has increased its surplus ami^profit account lo $500*900, which, in ad^^dition to its capital stock, gives a bank^^ing account available of ll/aTOyOOO. The^fact that the First National batik of^Helena does a larger business than any^similar institution between St. Caul^and San Kraneisco speaks eloquently for^the prosperity of this city and territory.^This is but one of four national banks^In Helena, all of which are doing a large^aud profitable business.
WilliamPikhck, who murdered his^father in l^W, In New York, for which
crimehe was sentenced to Imprisonment^for life, has spent liftv years in confine^^ment, lirst In the Auburn peuiteutiary^aud Hubseuently in the asylum for in^^sane criminal-, was ten days ago trans^^ferred from the last named institution^to an asylum for incurably Insane per^^sons, his sentence having been commu^ted by Gov.HUI. On the way to his new^home he saw a locomotive for the first^time in his life |he is H years old), and^seemed to arous^* from his Mhergy at the^sight. The punishment he has endured^Is not lees severe than the death penalty.
Ihkhe is not the slightest possibility^that the senate substitute for the house^tariff bill will pass the house. Were the^representatives ever so favorably dis^^posed toward the measure, which is not^the case, there does not remain sufficient^time for its consideration and for the^transaction of such necessary business^as is now upon the house calendar. The^republican Kifty first cougresn will have^the opportunity to deal with the ques^^tion, and in view of the result of the late^election It is only right thai the congress^then chosHii should have the responsibili^^ty of legislating upon the one supreme^question before the people.
MINS AND MINING.

Muchhns been said recently of the Cum^^berland tie^otiatiotm at Castle utouutains.^The new syndicate formed to operate the^mine and smeltrr is made up of men from^White .Sulphur Springs and vicinity, who^have succeeded in bonding a half Interest^in the mine, Cie bond lo expire Msy 1.

KM. Frank, a mining man, returned^yeufrday from a trip to the Co ur d'Alene^mines, lie is interested in the San Kran-^KrsnciM-o mine at Canyon City, which, he^nays, is undergoing development. In con^^versation with Catnck Clark, of the Poor-

The chmook of the past^ten days has rendered the lake navigable^and the large amount of concentrates ac^cumulated from the Toorman concentrator^are alniutto be shipped.
