Accordingto the Herald, a* near as can^be calculated the silver product of Montana^for the year, haslng the worth of the nun^eral on the Cnited Mates coinage value of^1 r.'jv. amounted to 91V.5oo,ooo. The gold^product, figured at ^'JUH7 per ounce,^amount* to $4.2(0,000. The cupper output^atikTegated about U7,760,000 pounds, and^thi* at the rate of fourteen cents ^ about an^average of what it brought the producers t^would be worth SIS.OKG.OOO. The market^price Is 17 cents, and, reckoned on thi*^basis, the copper alone would reach over^ftlft.400,000. Of lead there were about^260.000 pounds, and thi* at the rate of 4^cents, an average price for the year, would^be $1,060 000. The ^^rand total, al the low^^est computation Is *^ i^ ouo, or. if we fig^^ure copner at the market value of 17 cents,^tt would be $41,417,600. Taking the whole,^however, at what It actually brought the^producer*, the total output of Montaua for^1KHM in the tour metal* would be as fol^^lows:
ItisnotbMiesrly fof aspirants for mu^^nicipal offices to commence laying plans^for the spring campaign. Already there^are three candidates in the held, T. II.^Klelnschmidt, T. Pi Fuller, the nieumbeiit,^and Moses Morris. Mr. Morns, however,^indignantly denies that he Is s esndidste^for anything within the gift of the people^and that the use of his name ig unwar^ranted, and In ao way whatever has lie^ever Insinuated a predilection for the^msyoralty. In convention with a gen-^tleiuan well versed in municipal affair*^and municipal aspirations an 1ni^m*kn-^hknt reptirter learned a great deal yester^dsy not generally known.
1know^ ssid the reporter'^ Informant^^that Mr. Klems^ hmidt is a lull $*dged^esndidste fur mayor and 1 have every^reason that Mayor KnlU-r would like to^succeed himwdf. lit* has never intimated^to me that he desired to preside once more^over the destinies of our municipality but J^htdleve that he due*. ||e lias made a very^fair mayor, hut I don't think he has la-en^aggressive enough, lie has seen ht to pre^side with dlgnit) snd gue good roun-el^when ^ a ^'i 11^''i. to do M but has never^put forward any schemes tor the citt'a ad-^vaneemeut. Many thtrors he could have
suggested Which Were left Ulisaid Ulltll
theycame up in the regular order through^tlie council.
Thepresent year will be an important^one in the history of Helena ami a man^should t^- at the helm who has excellent^executive snd financial ability. There are^a great many thins** that must^be done. Main street should^lie pa\t*d. Nome means slum Id In* provided^to gel rltl of our storm water, which you^can see should l^e disposed ot in some man^ner. With our streets raised in the renter,^the gutters hxed in good shape ami Hume*^put in under crossings the surface water^Muld be gotten rid tit very readily and our^crossings would not he in the miserable^condition they now are. When we were^building the main sower some thought the^sluriu water Nhuiild he conveyed through^it, hut better counsel prevailed. With tlie^*amt that would wash intoth t sewer from^our streets 1 believe the best vitritied pipe^would soon he worn out. i Stsa#OSS if we^are lucky enough to he allowed to im-rcaae^our Indebtedness we will get an approprla^Una for storm sewers or something that^will answer the same purpose.
Thetax levy of eight mills 1* not^enough. It is enough for the taxpayer,^but not enough 10 no ft the expenses of the^city. We tell short shout ifHo.OOO last year^and unless the tax levy is laereaeasl our lav^debt* dness st the expiration of this year^will tie ovt r *jrto,oon
Anotherthing, 1 notice then* was con^siderahli- opposition in the council the^utlier night 1o the cnininlttee's proposed^amendments to the chnrler miikuiK It BUal^pulsory tor the mayor or aldermen u^ he a^freeholder, and providing sal umm I t .ink^thi* city Ih able to pay the mayor s salary^of $1,200 s yesr, snd the salary proposed^for the aldermen. V^o per year, is little^aajoturh. When a man is paid for doing^something he |s going to do it mwh better^than he would tor love. The proponed^amendment provides for two stated meet^lugs each month, jshich would make the^salary of each alderman M'jn, and 1 don't^think money sou Id be mure judiciously ex^|.. nd^ d. 'I he amendment pim idnik' no^man shall he an alderman unless he is a^freeholder Is a k^mk1 one. I 'iilcs* there is^some such provision we would get a set nf^eounctlasea in thee ty who have do Isitereet^in It, wtio wouhl work for themselves, and^a* a consequence there would he bon^-i hemes tostt red ami passed than the city^could take ear** ot*. The charUT aaedl^amending hadl^. and the council should at^unci* conshler the proposed amendments^snd get them into shape to present to the^legislature.
1 In re i* one thing that must he done^and -|uickly -a site selected for a cemetery.^I u iderstsnd the chairman of the cemetery^eoeMlttee baa esleeted a beautlfal place^within three miles of the city^clone^enouuh. There are ltlo acres in the shape^of a sijuare with the lushest part in the^centre ot the ground sloping gradually to^the tour sides. An engineer whs out ^ m^lerda^ and if h^^ finds that water can he^conveyed to the highest part of the site^the chairman sfthe cemetery committee^will purchase it st once. 1 had s ooavef^satltm with the chairman whose idea is to^set aside three or four acres of the knoll^whh h could he artifically beautified and^made a splendid resort tor all w ho vrlefc to^visit our necropolis.
Anothermatter. The city should own^Its wster works. We are taking water now^from two companies, and lam lafOTBaod^could purchase the Hale system. It Is^owned by Mr. Hale, T. C. Cower and^Maj. William Davenport. Mr. Hale ow m^on.-half the slock, and other Dseesbers of^the firm one fourth each, snd 1 understand^the ti nil doesn't get along well together,^Mr. Hale allowing I,.'too inches of water to^go to waste. If WooNton i ait gets hold of^that water he will put the clamps on the^people ot Helena, and we will have to pay^agouti deal more for our water than we^pay now. There is no reason why the city^should not own its water wurks, ami^money Judiciously expended now would^soon lessen the drain upon our treasury.^Our expenses are getting to tie enormous,^ami we will hsve to tiegin to retrench in^some manner Helena will Increase rapidly^within the next tive years, and by judicious^expenditure of money we should have^paved streets,our storm water provided for,^own a beautiful cemetery, own our water^works and have evcrv matter *o arranged^at the explrstion of that time that we^would hsve s sinking fund with which to^pay oil our indebtedness.

After music hy the hand^s piano^played by I'rof. Carl -the professor made a^bow to the audience, lie was partly in^evening dress and partly in everyday^clothes, that is, he wore a spike tall coat^andapairtif hrown hand me down trousers.^The pre! ojor eiplsined what mesmerism^was. II aid it was called meameristn.^h)pnnti~ and psychology, but of course^It was in iiiertsm and nothing else. No^one knew what it was, as the ^most clever^^est meslical men ^ .id la Had toenllghteu the^world. Not one out of ten people was^^succeptihie^ to the iu Nuance, and If any^one ^striv against his will he ^could not^do nothing.^ He wanted If possible to get^some medical luen oil the Stage to Control^affairs and see that everything was con^^ducted fairly.
Theprofessor tried for some time, assist^ed h^ the audience, to induce physicians lo^BOesS upon the stage, but failed. He then^called tor volunteers under who*' auspices^he wa* to display hi* occult power, and^four gentlemen took seats. The professor^then called for subjects, but did not call^long, for his doorkeeper and four other sad^looking specimens csme down the centre^aisle Indian tile, and on reaching the stage^smiled at the professor ss much to say,^^How ate you Nlbay, old boy.^ The pro-^feeeorrattiM oa in his easy dialect style^telling his subjects that whatever he did to^tht rn they wouldn't ^feel hurted.^ He then^asked each to clasp his left wrist With his^right hand and It wss done. The professor^passed hy each one and leered into his eyes.^They were good auhjects. He made a few^passes md commanded them to close their^e^es. which they did. Turning to the^audience the professor said when he^capped his hands three times his auhjects^would fall to the Moor and they did a t.^While in recumbent positions the professor^amused himself by piercing the esr of^one and the ear, lip and eyelid of another^with a needle, drawing a thread through^the holes made. This waa conaidered^wonderful, but there is nothing wonderful^in it, ss no psin follows. The audience^was duped some more hy a fellow making^believe that he imagined himself to be a^ronst. r, by two of them drinking cod liver^oil imagining it liquor, eating bran for Ice^cream, smoking candles for rigars, raw^point.,en fur apple*and other silly trick*.
