The word had^gone out they should be there, and there^they were. Exactly how the destination^was reached very few could tell, but when^a delegation arrived and were hurrying In^the direction of the council chamber or the^i^oiice magistrate's court room they were^stopped by the outside sentinel, told to^duck their hesds, go through the fire sta^^tion to the rear until they reached a stair-^wa\ on the left, then follow their leaders^up the narrow stalrwsy until they came Ui^a brtlllsntly lighted ehsmber where the^grand Atiknond af ^^^at **t ^^ * raised^dais, and after propt-r ol^isance was made^they would be rsmrted to their seats, lowly^though they were, compared with the^tnroiie upon which sat the potentate with^h el ew m tobaeeo !^ bin mouth and a gavel^in hi* hand.

istoo much. It li not the manual labor^but being in the vicinity of tbe furnace we^complain of, and hope that In the near fu^^ture the company will be able to make^eight hours a day's work.
Theamelter grounds are tilled with ore,^the shut down for s few dsys having accu^uiulaned a great deal. In one day last^Wffk s^ venteeri cars were re*-rived. I be^Helena company says It waa a mistake |aj^announcing the smelter was short of Iron^ore for S using- There Is an abundant sup^ply of ore on hand and a very large visible^supply. From the Kadersburg Iron mines,^which have re^ ently baa* stimulated Into^increased production, 'JUb Ions are shipped^dally.
HelenaIs destined to be tbe ore mar^ket for tbe entire northwest and particu^larly for points west of here, The great^silver lead mines of Idaho are appreciating^this fact, and the result la that nearly the^entire yield of concentrates is being shipptil^to thla point. Thus a double freight is^saved, aa by having the ores treated at Hel^ens tin^ y are on the direct route to the east^^ern markets, whereas if shipped to i in niters^further west than the mines, an additional^haul would be required to transport the^bullion to the east.
NineI ting Is undou bled I v the cheapest^method of reducing ores, particularly^those which are base. Msny miners have^leads which they Imagine contain only^milling ore, hut If they should try the^smelters they would soon realize their or^ror and also find their returns larger, as^the percentage of the precious metals lost^through smelting Is less than In any other^method of ore redurtion.
ThereIs MM for another smelter here^doubly as Isrge as that at hast Helena, It Is^claimed.
NEW I'l.ACKK MINKS.
JohnK. Marks, of Townseud, arrived In^the city yesterday and said the new placer^diggings discovered, while not very rich,^contains good quantities of fine gold.^Msny claims have been staked off, hut the^ground will not be worked to advantage^until water Is procured. There Is no water^for sluicing within several milea up to John^Murray's ditch from Heaver creek The^locators of the new ground are talking of^organizing a company to build a ditch. At^present the only method of mining the dirt^is to fill a bag, carry it to Townnend, about^a mile distant, and pan It out. (iood wages^arc being realized in this manner. Mr.^Msrks says the little excitement occasioned^by the discovery has subsided.

1'nttedtttatea. A soliciting^committee was sppolnted to^report at the next annual cuference. and^Helena was decided upon a- a suitable lo^^cation for the college. Offers of ground^were made at various suburbs of the city,^the principle plac^^ being in the Townsite^addition unit best of the city, the Bradford^addition on Hie west side, and an Otftff of^forty acres in the flat, six miles north of^Helena. The tirst named locations were^vlewtMl yesterday and to day the directors^In a body will view the location north of^town.

Itbeing a apeclal meeting, principally to^open bida for Are alarm systems, tbe regu^^lar order waa diipenaed with. The Klcb^mond Interstate Non-interfering KIre and^Police Alarm put in two bids. The first^one read Is for an ordinary arrangement^for SS.^st). The second was for the non-^interfering telegraph s) s'eui for $4,346 and^extra charge f^^r the poiice a:nrm. I'o he^paid for aa follows: One thousand dollara^cash and city warrants payable In one,^two, three, four and five years, with 7 per^cent, annual Intereat
Tbebid for the i,ameweii Telegraph Non-^Interfering system was 94.101), police alarm^to come extra, and terms for payment up^on which tbe city may agree, 'the tisme-^well bid provides for gongs and Indicators^at the waterworks and central station and^a 2.500 pound bell In the tower.
Afterbeing read Alderman Harrison^moved that the bids be referred to a special^committee of live. Worth amended to re^^fer them to the former committee which^had fire alarm husluess in hand. The^amendment carried and Harrison waa^knocked out, when he moved that the vote^be reconsidered, giving as his reason that^his orlgini' motion was not understood.^Aldermsn Mrkendall was probably the^only one wh ^ didn't understand and the^motion to rescind prevailed.
Hsrrisonagain tried to have this previous^matter referred to a special committee and^made a motion to that effect, and consented^to a suggestion from a gentleman In the^rear thst the committee be composed of one^alderman from each ward. Worth agsln^amended Harrison's motion by adding that^the matter Ik* referred to the same commit^^tee. He said this committee was thorough^ly tsmillar with the tire alarm subject, and^as he waa a member of the committee,^didn't feel disposed to vote for a motion^that might place film off.
Ona vote Harrison was again knocked^out and Worth's amendment prevailed.
Hidsfor grading lieuton avenue were^next opened and read. The part of the^avenue to be grad* d is bet wen Clark and^Main streets. This Is the wora which^Krvaii contracted to do. hut suddenly left^town. The bids aa read are aa follows,^the bid designating'so many cents per yard:
