Itis useless for any person,^who has been in our store for^the la^t month, to say ^Harris,^how's biz I^ If they were not^blind they conld see ^biz was^good.^ Why was it good with^us when every clothing firm in^Helena has been an active mem^^ber of the ^kickers club.
Why.simply faMMMM we^showed about as many styles^as all the other houses com^^bined. And when a man felt^that he did not want to work a^whole yeai for the merchant^tailor, in case he needed a sum^^mer suit he put a double eagle^and calls on us, pees just as^well made, just as good fitting^and much more stylish gar^^ments, and a-* a natui-al con ^ ^^ijuence buys his euit ami keeps^us busy.
Didyou ever hear about our^clearing sales '. We 1, we are^about to start one, pretty soon,^and you can safely gamble that^what little fur is left on the^hides of some of our moss backs^will tiy when they see the^prices we quote. Among them^we will mention some of the
Don'tyou call to mind that^pretty line of Irish tweeds, the
iroduction of Hill ^ Son, of^Jublin I We had them in two^colors^gray and brown They^were about as universally ad^^mired as anything we have of^^fered this year, but many peo^^ple thought the}- were high;^out they were not. The trouble^was, they were not appreciated;^but it makes no difference. The^knife goes into them just the^same, and the consequence is,^from this day the is^scratched and $17 appears.
Butwe have plenty other^plums for those toeat who have^money to buy. The express^has brought in MO suits, sum^^mer weights, that were pur^^chased at 66 cents on the dollar^and they go for the same per^^centage. Many of these lots^came in oui first pni chases and^were marked |aH*, |M, up to^$2S. Now none of them are^marked over #20, and although^it is a rank shame, we have let^some of them oat at #10. You^can borrow money at .^^per cent,^a month to pay for your next^summer'* suit and s'ill be^ahead on nearly any of these^lots.
You'venot heard of any sun^^strokes this year, have you^ Do^you know the reason I We can^tell you. We have had no hot^weather; for the same reason^we have sold but few of our^summer -pecialties in coats and^vesta.
Now,if there is anything we^}^ride ourselves on, it is selection^of these goods. .lust take a^look at our north window. You^will seethe prettiest assortment^you ever saw in your life. Mo-^liairs, crepes, pongee series and^silks; the variety is great and^assortment astounding: prices^::.r^ per cent, lower than they^\.ou:d be if the season had been^propitious. We have ^-ersuck-^ers at It, coat and vest. We^have stri]^e and cross bar liss-^tres at ffi, which our competi^tins hold at *^. We have in^the finer grades, goods that can^^not be purchased outside of our^bouse for love nor money. As^we say, the greatest variety, the^greatest profusion ever offered^to a Montana public.
Infact, all our lines are re^^markably low in furnishing^goods. In Hats, in Shoes, all^as cheap as consistent with good^grades and best workmanship.

NewYoke, July 10.^The water which^came up over the village of Johnstown^laat night subsided this morning, but left^scenes of destruction in every direction.^The water rose fifteen feet and overflowed^everything. It has now fallen eight feet.^Twenty people are reported missing, and^the bodies of four have been recov Ted, all^Johnstown people. Tbe drowned and^missing people were among a crowd of^thirty to fifty who stood on the stone bridge^at Perry street watching the rising water,^regardless of the danger until the bridge^gave way. The briage was twenty feet^high and fifteen or twenty feet wide. Most^of those thrown into the water were saved.^The sudden rise of Cayadatto creek is sup^^posed to have been occasioned by a cloud^^burst. Eight or nine bridges were swept^away. Two tanneries and the dams of the^electric light plant and many buildings^were damaged. The pecuniary loss is^small, probably $20,000. The creek is be^^ing dragged for bodies ot tbe drowned.
Thetracks of the New Y'ork Central^^vrc washed away at Fonda and A ki and^great damage was done to property in all^the towDS of the Mohawk valley to Am^^sterdam. There is as yet no certainty of^more than four lives lost at Johnstown,^and these victims were on a bridge view^ing the rt xtd after the storm- The bridge^dropped into the water, but was not car^^ried away. This afternoon tbe tracks and^bridge at Fonda and Athens were suffic^^iently repaired to permit the parage of^trains. The total damage in the valley of

THE RAILWAY PRESIDENTS.
NoKeaulta From the Chicago Conference.^Note* of the Track.
Chicago,July 10.^The presidents of^lines in the Interstate Commerce Railway^association met again to-day. without giv^^ing any indication that they intended to let^their organization go to smash. The com^^mittees appointed on tne preceding day to^confer with the Chicago A Alton and the^Chicago, Burlington A Northern had noth^^ing to report and were allowed further^time, it being announced that General^Manager Harris, of the latter road, would^arrive in the city to-morrow. A resolution^was adopted instructing the managers of^roods represented to take steps to advance^rates from Peoria and St. Louis to St. Paul^and intermediate points. It was fun her^resolved that the commodity rates which^have recently been put into effect between^Chicago and St Paul are too low to be^reasonable, and that it is tbe duty of each^road in the association to use its influence^to have them advanced as soon as possible.^There will be another meeting to-morrow.
GreatFalls Wool Market.^Great Falls, July 10,^Special to the^Independent. J^Wool continues to come in^at the rate of from so 000 to 100,000 pounds^per day. Shipments are also active. The^clips received include those ot such noted^wool growers as the Severances, Clark^Brothers. Abbott A Collins, with many^smaller pn^lucen. The market is firm^and is deemed higher proportionately than^the quotations at Boston and the seaboard^generally. Wool growers are disposed to^sell for cash and not to consign or store tbe^wool, as was the custom in former years.^The wool compress is giving general satis^^faction, being the only one in North Mon^^tana. Good results are expected from the^Wool Growers' association, which will be^formed on a liberal basis on Friday^evening.

oath lmVcitan. Diaruaalna; Power to^Change the Constitution of 1KX.v
StorxFalls. July 10 ^ At to-day's s^sion of the constitutional -onvention the^q iestion under consideration was tbe^power of the convention to change the con^stitution of lMw It came np on a motion^to refer different articles of that document^to appropriate committees. President^Edgerton argued that such reference im^plied the convention's power to change^any and every article, whereas congress^had limited changes to certain specific^provisions. In opposition to this view^Delegates Jolly, Caldwell and others main
tamedthat what was referred merely pur^ported to be part of the constitution of lsrvj^and tbe convention could officially know^the provisions ot said document only upon^report of committee or by examination^thereof as a body. This nia'ter w ill come^up again to-morrow, and is regarded as^specially important, as certain changes^might jeopordize the president's proclama^^tion ot admission and cause it to be de^ferred
Muchconcern is felt regarding the action^of the judicial apportionment committee.^Almost every county has an aspirant for^a judgeship, and there will be a strong at^^tempt to make at least ten or a di-zrii cir^^cuits. Tbe congressional uid legislative^apportionment committee i^ likewise be^^sieged to make districts favorable to mani^^fold interests of differen: cand.dates.^Messrs. Moody and Edgerton, elected sen^a tors under the old constitution, are both^here, tbe former as a visitor and the latter^as president of the convention. R. S. Pet-^tigrew, of Sioux Falls, will be Edgerton's^chief competitor for the senatorahip. All^theae gentlemen will strive for such^arrangement of legislative districts as shall^further their respective interests.
Bismarck,July 10.^This has been a^day of rest for the constitutional conven^^tion. An adjournment was taken from^Monday until Thursday, to allow Presi^^dent Ftncher time to construct stand^^ing committees. The committees will^be announced to-morrow. There is a^strong feeling that tbe committees will fa^^vor no special interests, b t that all will be^treated fairly. Tbe one-levislative-body^idea still occupies considerable space in the^thoughts of the delegates and will tv wry^thoroughly considered. Ex-Governors^Pierce and Ordway seem to nave a pretty^sure thing to be elected LoRed States sena^^tors, while Gen. Allen is leading for gov^^ernor. The democrats are preparing for a^full ticket and will fight their hardest for^it, but they have only nineteen out of sev^^enty delegates. Everything teems to^point to Bismarck for the temporary capi^^tal at least. Tbe convention. Guv. Mel^lette thinks, will last forty or nfty days.
Oltmpia,July 10.^In tile constitu^^tional convention to-day a petition was^presented favoring prohibition and woman^^tittrage. A petition was presented on be^^half of the laboring class recommending^secret ballot, election of all state^officer* l^i vote of the people,^majority representation, taxation of^unused the same as cultivated lands,^etc. A majority of the propositions^presented during the day were aimed^against corporations, especially railroads,^forbidding the formation of the same by^special act, giving the legislature power to^annul or amend charters: also forbidding^the granting of subsidies to cor^^porations or to individuals except^by two-thirds of the popular^vote; against alien ownership of land; for^^bidding tbe sale of school or state laud:^limiting municipal indebtedness to 4 per^cent, forbidding the charter of state batiks,^etc All these propositions were referred^to committees.
What is Said of the Owner of the (.real^I^erby Winner.
NewYork Sportsman Juu^ L^.'. Noah^Armstrong, the owner of Spokane, is a^man Ho years of age. He Is one of that^quiet kind of Robert Bonner millionaires,^who may feei like giving any sum for a^racehorse, but not over $40 for a suit of^clothe*. Tbe gentleman isofstrudy build,^and would to-day be a hard man to handle.^His race is not particularly striking, and,^with bis gray t**ard and heavy cane, be^might easily be mistaken for a well-to-do^farmer. A meerschaum pipe takes the^place of a cigar, and bis plug of tobacco is^returned to its pouch with as much pre^^cision as would be shown by a dude in^placing a gold watch in a buck.^kin case.
Mr.Armstrong is a man who has no turf^secrets and always runs his horses to win.^A long price is always procurable about^his horses, and this kind of an owner is tbe^owner is the one for the public to back, as^with horses of lesser quality heavier-bet^^ting owners briTig their animals to the post^at a short price. Mr. Armstrong was born^in Canads, but his father was and Ameri^^can citizen, and young Armstrong came^across the border at tbe age of 14 In 1H42^be entered the I'nited States army and^served in the Mexican war, afterward set^^tling in the far west.
Hefirst became interested in race horses^in 1HH0, when he bought of a man named^Hudson^once the manager of the stock^farm of M. H. Sanford, where stood^such stallions as Monarchist and Vir-
11^ten animals. One of tbem was^om Plunkett, and the horse coming good^was sold to Cassidy. of St. Louis, for 85.000,^making the nine remaining animals cost^Armstrong but $5,000.
AsMonarch turned out well, the racing^career of the owner of Spokane has been^one of tbe few wherein the pass ton for the^thoroughbred nas not resulted in financial^loss. Mr. Armstrong has some peculiar^ideas of training quite in accord with the^common sense now used in the training of^athletes. His idea is to give the animal^plenty to eat and plenty of rest: light, slow^work and the most patient handling. For^a boy to twitch his horse's mouth in a fit of^anger is certain to work bis immediate dis^^charge. In a race the whip can be used^but lightly, tbe spur only as a reminder to^the animal, and no welts or bleeding sides^are ever seen on this owner's horses. ^1^claim they run as fast as they can. and no^one shall butcher them f r me,^ is the ex^^pression of the owner of tbe Kentucky and^American Derby winner.

MichaellavMSl Complaint Against In.^miea of the Irish Caoae.
London.July 10^Michael Davitt ap^peared before the Paraell commission^again to-day. He complained that some^^body who desire to injure the Irish in the^eyes of the British public ha^ placed two^bogus dynamite machines within the pre^^cincts of the court, and out of this alleged^attempt at outrage the Evening Post, of^London, made a sensational article whicb^said this incident indicated the dar ger^which the court incurred and showed how^easily desperate enemies of England, wbo^recently testified before the commistton,^could blow up the building. Mr. Davit' in^an excited manner asserted his belief that^the affair bad been piant.ed by LeC. ron^and Houston. Justice ilannon said he un^^derstood wby Davitt should have strong^feeling in the matter, but he must take the^proper course and make inquiries to pr ^ve^his allegation a He himself regarded the^matter as a silly hoax.

AK. and the Railroads Fail to Come^to Terms on Rale*.
ChuAti^^. July 10.^The tight between^the Grand Army of tbe Republic and th^uarious railroad companies reached an^acute phase this evening. This was the^last day of the period named by the Grand^Army men lo which railroads migb^gracefully surrender and give th^usual rate of 1 cent a mile^to persons attending the gres^annual encampment, announced to tak^place this year at Milwaukee. N ^ surren^der sbbsI made t^v the railroads and this^afternoon the committee of the Grand Army^of the Republic department commanders^wbo have been agitating the subject held^a meeting here and proceeded with^the attempt to carry out their^threat In the event of the rail^roads proving obstinate the encampments^should be made, it possible, merely an as^^semblage of delegates instead of a huge^popi lar gathering. The commission voted^to send a circular to ail department com^manders throughout the country urging^that attendance on the encampment be^limited, so far as practicable, in tbe^manner above described. Preparations^at Milwaukee for the entertainment^great crowds expected have l^een virtually^suspended, owing to the dispute with the^railroads, and to-day's action of the com^^mittee of commanders, may, it is teared,^render the stoppage permanent
Milwai'kke,July 10. ^leading mem^^bers ot the local Grand Army encampment^council express a good deal of indignation^at the action of the department command^^ers in issuing a boycotting circular,^and say that all preparations^will be stopped at once. A meeting will^beheld to-morrow night to definitely de^^termine what to do. The city authorities^will probably decline to make the neces^^sary appropriations for camps and bar^^racks unless the boycotting circulars are^rescinded.
TheW innipeg Su.prrt in the ^ roniii ^ .^-^^Held for Extradition.
Winnipeg,July 10.^In the Burke trial^to-day counsel f^;r the defense assailed the^evidence, which they held did not connect^the prisoner in any manner with tbe mur^^der of Dr. Cronin, or show that Burke^knew Cronin or bad any malice against^him. The prosecution argued that the evi^^dence made a clear enough case to justify^extradition. Judge Bain held that a suffi^^cient case had been made out: that while^most of the evidence is circumstantial, it^seemed to him that evidence giving a strong^presumption of guilt is all that is necessary^to commit a prisoner for trial or remand^m for extradition He therefore commit^^ted Burke to jail to await extradition. The^full court, he said, is now sitting, and^Purke could be brought before them imme^^diately on application for a writ of habeas^corpus. Application will be made to the^department of justice at Ottawa for extra^dition, but the prisoner will be given fifteen^days' grace in which to appeal from Judge^Bain's decision.

CHURCH AND THE lELEPHONE.
Thet.reat Invention Keing i'nt to (iood^t'se In I ngland.
BostonHerald: It has been rumored^frequently, since the teleprone went into^operation, that it could be used for trans^^mitting the sermons and the church ser^^vices on Sunday to the horn -a of those who^could not attend Sunday worship, or were^too lazy to put forth thentcessary exertion;^but it has been teit that there was more^poetry than truth in any such device. It is^now stated by a correspondent of the Lon^^don Standard that the South of England^Telephone company has been able to con^^vey to invalids, to doctors and chemists'^assistants on duty, to people five miles^distant from the church and to large num^^bers of private residences In^various parts of an English^town, the whole of the church service Sun^^day morning a d evening, so that the^organ voluntaries, the singing, tbe read^^ing and the sermon were clearly transmit^^ted. Sixteen wires were connected with a^single church, and the preacher was satis^^factorily beard in as many different places.^The success of this experiment has already^been such that wires are being laid to the^homes of subscribers in various adjoining^E ig.ish towns, who will thus be able to^participate in religious worship at a dis^^tance. Tbe success of this experiment^will undoubtedly cause its repetition in all^parts ot England, and it will be a great^boon to all who are debarred from joining^in Christian worship with their bodily-^presence. But while it will work for^the convenience of those who suffer lroni^inability to attend church, it will also work^for the convenience of those who like a^good excuse for not being present at the^center of worship. The head of a house^^hold can listen at the telephone receiver,^and become the agent of the different mem^^bers of the family, giving in substance^what comes to biui in detail, so that in this^busy- age the different members of the fam^^ily can keep Up their engagements, and^still have the credit of attending worship,^if not its full enjoyment Then, again,^with so good an excuse for not attending^public worship, it is likely- that there will^be a tailing off in the congregations where^these telephone arrangements are provided.^Who wou!d care to take the trouble of at^^tending church on a rainy day when he^could have the full benefit of the set vice by^sitting at home and listening to wbat his^telephone reports .' To carry the \, -int^further, the question may be asked why^public worship could Dot be dispensed^with, the minister preaching his sermon in^his own study and the choir performing in^an adjoining room ^ This wouid greatly^decrease church expenses and would con^^duce largely to the comfort of individual^parishioners, while the telephone used on^Sunday would also be used by the minister^for making pariah calls on week days, and^thus be an immense saving of time to him^^self. Nothing is more vexatious in these^days than the loss of time wbipb seems in^^evitable in putting ourselves in direct per^^sonal contact with others, and the use of^the telephone for religious purposes prom^^ises a great relief to overworked^town ministers and to overworked^parishioners, who on Sunday would giadly^compose themselves on a lounge or in bed^and still receive their Sunday education.^Altogether, the switching off of the sermon^and service from the church as the center^of religious operation promts s a revolution^to over-burdened people, as well as great^c imtort to those who are deprived of their^cjstomary religious privilege*. If the^church of the future should be assisted by^telephone, it will also be the stepping^stone to a great many change* which need^not here be outlined. It will introduce the^era of the invisible church, and If the tele^phone can convey spiritual comfort as ef^^fectively as if it were conveyed directly in^the old way, why will not the visible^church re superseded practically by the be^^ginning of the twentieth century
