HELENA, MONTANA TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY MORNING. JULY 17. 1889.
St.Locis Block,^MAIN STREET.
Itis U8*-1hss for any jK-rson,^who lias be^n in our store for^the last MOMth, to say 'Harris,^how's biz^ If they were not^Miiul tiie-y cou'd see ^biz was^good.^ Why was it good with^us when every clothing lirni in^Helena has been an arrive mem^^ber of the ^kickers Huh.'
\VIi y. s;niply because we^showed about as many styles^as all the ^^tb^T houses ^om-^bined. And when a man felt^that he did not want to work a^whole yeai for the merchant^tailor, in cas^ he needed a sum^^mer suit he put a double eagle^and calls on us, eees just as^well mad**, just :n good tilting^and much nioie stylish gar^inputs, and as a natural conse-^qmeaofl buys his suit and keeps^M busy.
Didyou ever hear about our^i b-aiing sales I 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^sj ^ecialries.
Don'tyou call to mind that^pretty line of Irish tweeds, the^production of Hill k Son, of^Dublin I We had them in two^colors^gray and brown. They^were ab jut as universally ad^^mired as anything we have of^^fered tliis year, but many peo^pie thought they were high;^but they were not. The trouble^was, they were not appreciated;^but it makes no difference. The^knife goes into them just the^sinif, and the consequence is,^from this day the $*J2 is^scratched and $17 appears.
Butwe have plenty other^plums for those toeat who have^money to buy. The express^has brought in 2(Mt suits, sum^^mer weights, that were pur^^chased at 65 cents on the doliar^and they go for the same per^^centage. Many of these lots^came in oui first puicha^es and^were marked ^:^^^, $^^^^, up to^*5fts. Now none of them are^marked over $'Jo, and although^it is a rank shame, we have let^some ot them out at *lo. You^can borrow money at ^^per cent,^a month to pay for your next^summer's suit and s'ill be^ahead on nearly any of these^lots.
You'venot heard of any sun^^strokes this year, haveyou' Do^_\*^u know the n-a^on ! We can^tell you. We have had no hot^weather; for the same reason^we have sold but few of our^summer specialties in ccats and^vests.
Now,if there is anything we^pride 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^^hairs, crepes, jxtngee serges and^silks; the variety is great and^assortment astounding; prices^96 j^^r cent, lower than they^would be if the season had l^een^propitious. We have seeisuck^^ers at *1, coat and vest. We^have stripe and croes-bar liss-^tres at IB, which our competi^^tor- hold at #7. We have in^the tiner grades, goods that can^^not be purchased outside of our^house for love nor money. As^we say, the greatest variety, the^grea'est profusion ever offered^to a Montana public.
Infact, all nor lines are re^^markably low in furnishing^goods. In Hats, in Shoes, all^as cheap as consistent with good^grades and best workmauship.
Acleaver has been at the dis-
1.osalof over 300 dozen hand-^ten hiefs at IS 1 1 cents each-^pretty things they were, too,^and tieaily all gone.
Liuenvests at $1 each: last^year's goods at 08.60. Night^robes, embroidered and plain;^in fact an^ thing you want to^make yourself a second Adonis^you can buy.

APromise from Justice Hannen That the^Caw Will Kc Concluded TbUWttk-^Jsbim O'Keily's TMtlmsD).
London.July 14.^Upon the opening of^the Parnell commiMioD this morning Sir^Charles Knssell. counsel for Parnell, stated^that after full consideration of the situa^^tion, Parnell had instructed him to no^longer represent him before the comniis^sion. This was virtually a notification^that Parnell declined to make any further^presentation of his case before the commis^^sion. Justice Hannen said: ^Parnell will,^of course, remain subject to the jurisdic-^tion of the court.^ Counsel for the other^members of parliament against whom^charges were made by the Times then also^withdrew from the case. Parnell made a^personal application to the curt, asking if^there was any design to further continue^the examination that it be proceeded with^without delay. .Justice Hannen promised^him the case would be concluded by Thurs^^day.
Afterthe counsel for Parnell and other^members of parliament bad retired Justice^Hannen said the scope of the inquiry couid^not be altered. Taking ^^f testimony wss^then resumed. James 0'Keily. member of^parliament, declared be. bad no statement^to iii.ik... On cross-examination he at^in it ted he was a member of the Irish repub^lican brotherhood from 1N66 to 1*70. In^July, ; -^ 1. an attempt to arrest him wss^made when he was leaving Ireland under^the name of John Smith. Letters were^found in I is luggage from an agent who^was shipping arms to Ireland. Sir Henry^James, counsel for the Times, produced^several letters written by O'Kelly, partly^in invisible ink. in which reference was^made to the shipment of arms and the do^^ings of Fenians. One of the letters re^^ferred to a remittance of ^21.500 from^America, and contained a passage reading,^^We are ready to take the held when the^proper order is issued.
Witnessadmitted that the letters were^not authehtic. While witness was in^America he joined the Clan na Gael. This^organization sent him to Ireland as a mili^^tary officer to reorganize the men. He re^^ceived 8V.000 toward his expense*. Ue^did not effect the object of his mission,^finding the agents in Ireland declined to^co-operate with him. He therefore con^^sidered bis mission ended and went to^France. He sent his resignation to Ameri^^ca and returned $8,000. During bis career^in parliament he bad received no mon j^from America.
Mr.Matthew Harris, member of the^house of commons for East Gal w a v. testi^^fied that he joined the Fenians in 1885. The^death penalty to traitors was not an essen^^tial feature of the Fenian constitution. Mr^Harris instanced the case of Informer^Kick ham, and said the society after discus^^sion decided that he thould not be shot^I'residing Justice Hannen: ^Thefact that^there was such a discussion Implies^much.^ Continuing, witness said the Fen^^ian council of 1881 was held in Paris for^the sake of security. Mr. Davitt bad been^arrested and tbey did not know whose turn^would be next. It was therefore thought^better to meet out of Ireland.
ATALK WITH POWDERLY,
The^^^ i.^-rjtl Master Workman Says He^Has No Olive Branches for Barry
Chicago,July 16.^General Master^Workman Powderly and some of his col^^leagues on the executive board of the^Knights of Labor arrived in the city this^morning and held a secret conference at^tbeir hotel.
Theboard decided the next general^assembly shall be held at Atlanta, QtV,^the second Tuesday in next November.^During the afternoon Mr. Powderly re^^tired and received calls. In talking to a^reporter as to the purpose of the board^coming west, Mr. Powderly said this was^the quarterly meeting of the executive^board and was called in Chicago for the^convenience of the northwestern assem^^blies. The statements of some newspapers^that it is to revive the waning influence of^the Knights in this portion of the country^and that the meeting is an exceptional one,^are false. In reply to a query as to whether^the board had come west to confer in any^way in regard to Barry's United Brother^hood, the general master workman said :^^ We have no overtures to make to^Mr. Barry and no olive branches^for him. There has as yet^been no complaint made to us^of anything he has done. I know of no^intention to meddle with bis affairs. This^matter is greatly exaggerated. We don't^hear nearly so much of the t'nited Bro'ber^hood in the east. The talk of it is mainiy^in the west^ Concerning the presentjeon-^dition of affairs in the Knights of Labor, he^said: ^At present we have a membership^of 300,000. When 1 am asked to explain^the falling off, I ask why should so many^come in^ This present membership is^really an increase which I strongly op^^posed. Much of it is made up of those^people who think strikes the salvation of^all evils. I have opposed this membership^from the beginning
Regardingthe eight-hour day question,^Mr. Powderly said he Is decidedly in favor^of a reduction in the hours of labor, hut^was opposed to sudden measures The^question is now before the order and will^be settled if possible by the next genera!^assembly.
BOlLA.NGER A TRAITOR.
Uani-vging Evidence Alleged to Exist^Against the French General.
Paris,July 16.^The Temps says a^cypher telegram has been discovered which^proves that Boulanger was at the head of a^plot to march upon the Ely see palace, and^that several officers of high rank had^promised him their support. The Temps^further says the charges of embezzlement^against Boulanger relate to the purchase of^camp bedsteads and other supplies for the^troops and to malversation of the funds of^the war ministry. Among other charges,^it says the general is accused ot using^funds of the war ministry to buy shares in^a military club, and of keeping the shares^thus bought in his own possession.
Jen. Boulanger. M. Kochefort and Count^Dillon are summoned to appear within ten^dsys. If they do not appear within twenty^days they will be declared outlaws and^their property confiscated until they sur^^render. It is stated the trial has been fixed^for August 10. Judgment will be final, no^appeal being allowed. The indictment^ca aries the accused with the instigation^and issue of a manifesto against the gov^^ernment in July, 1887. at Lyons and Paris,^and in December, 1887, in Paris.
.11ST THE KENTl ( KV WAV
TheMonotont Broken in the Washington^Convention - In the llakotas.
Olvmpia,July 14^A few days ago P.^B. Moore, of Spokane Falls, ordered fifteen^cases of the best whisky to be shipped him^from Kentucky, in order that he might^keep open house in good old-fashioned^style. A reporter saw the whisky deliv^ered and wrote a sensational article tor a^Seattle paper, stating that Moore was lob^^bying in the iuterest of the Northern Pa^cinq railroad and bad imported the liquors^as conducive to a subtle influence. Moore^to-day arose to a question of privilege, had^the article read and denied that he was^connected with the convention in any Ir^^regular manner. He explained the de^tails of his Kentucky career and instanced^the importation of the liquor as onlr in^keeping with the old-time principles of^hospitality for which Kentuckians are^noted, (ireat applause greeted the explana^^tion, and at the conclusion of the conven^^tion the democrats went te Moore's house^and sampl.d his goods.
Thejudiciary committee made its report,^recommending the establishment of a^supreme court with three judges: divides^the state into twelve district courts: no^judxecan leave the state for more than^sixty days except by special perns nion of^the governor: no fees are allowed any ju^dicial officer except recorder or justices in^towns of less than 5,000 inhabitants.^Among the propositions introduced was^one asking for the establishment of an ag^^ricultural college: one asking for the estab^^lishment of state rooms, and several favor^^ing the Australian election system.
ToTax the Railroads.
Bismarck,July 16.^In the constitu^^tional convention to day. Chairman Cotton,^of the committee on taxation, submitt- d a^proposition that the governor, secretary ot^state and state auditor shall constitute a^boaid ot assesssors, whose duty it shall be^to assess each year the railroads of the^state, including the roadbed, rolling stock^and all buildings The method of the dis^^tribution of assessment is the same as now^in vogue in the state of Illinois. There is^a strong sentiment in favor of th's mode^of taxation of railroads. Mr.^Unwell introduced a proposition giving^a wife full power to control all proper!)^belonging to her at marriage or acquired^by gift t hereafter. The convention appear*^unanimous in favor of the protection of the^immense grants of lands for school pur^^poses, but a little divided as to the plan,^and several propositions have been intro^^duced on that subject. Mr. Blemett intro^^duced a proposition that if at any time the^state shall prohibit the manufacture or sale^of liquor, it shall indemnify the brewers^and distilleries. Mr. Comp proposed thst^the question of prohibition shall be submit^^ted in two forms^absolute prohibition and^high license.
Theproposition to have the legislature^consist of a single body is gaining ground^with the convention and has been made a^special order for the committee of the whole^to morrow. The committee on judiciary^has not yet reported on the question of^establishing courts and abolishing the office^of justice of the peace. Much interest is^felt in this question.
TheMormon* in Idaho.
BoiseCity, Idaho, July 14.^The con^^vention is making fair progress on the con^^stitution. In the discussion of the bill of^rights the democrats come out strongly in^favor of the section* affecting Mormonism,^and introduced an amendment declaring^polygamy and bigamy prohibited: that the^legislature shall pass laws for the punish^^ment of these crimes. The Mormon ques^^tion appears sure of harmonious settlement.

NoElection in Oklahoma City.
KansasCity, July 16.^A Times special^from Oklahoma City says: At 6 o'clock^this morning, in d* fiance of Mayor Couch's^proclamation and the special urder of Gen.^Merritt, an attempt was made by the anti-^administration faction to hold a charter^election. Two polling places were estab^^lished, near which were stationed squads^of I'nited States soldiers and special police.^Mayor Couch and City Marshal Kuntz ap^^proached one polling place and demanded^of the men in charge by what right they^were holding an election. ^By the author^^ity of the people.^ they replied. The mayor^and marshal next took possession of the^poll books and ballot boxes and conveyed^them to the city hall, where they locked^them up. The mayor and marshal were^arrested later on a warrant sworn out be^^fore the United States commissioner charg^^ing them with intimidation, but were re^^leased. At a meeting of the charter fac^^tion to-night it was determined to make a^further attempt to hold an election.
ToTest Colorado's Meat Inspection Law.

The^case was not tried upon its merits, but the^question arose on a demurrer to the indict^^ment and the decision was against the de^^fendant for the reason lhat if Judge stone^had declared the law unconstitutional the^state could not have appealed to the su^^preme court Hon. Geo. W. McCreary and^Wiiliard Teller appeared for the defense^and Isaac M. Stevens and Hugh Butler for^the prosecution.
TheThanks or the Pope.
Montreal,July 16.^pope Leo Kill^has sent an autograph letter to the author^^ities of Lovel university, thanking them^and the citizens of yuebec for the resolu^^tions adopted by them at the demonstra^^tion of April 28 last, in favor of the restora^^tion of the temporal power of the pope.^His holiness congratulates them not only^on their prudence but on the sagacity of^their action. He says it is evident they^well understand how the impunity enjoyed^by the enemies of the church was the^source of the impurities in human society^and of troubles to the state.

SomethingAlmut the Marches of Troops^in the inn--i. m nivlsions.
WashingtonSpecial: The military ma^^neuvers of the troops at the various fron^^tier posts will !*^ more systematic and com^^prehensive this summer than ever before,^though still very insignificant in compar^^ison with those of the standing armies of^other nations in time of peace. There will^be nothing deserving the name of mobil^^ization, and the marches in the different^departments will be made independent!).^Still the maneuvers will take place under^general orders from the secretary of war,^instead of at the independent discretion of^department commanders, as heretofore,^and the secretary has been asked to make^a specific allotment of funds to meet their^necessary expenses. Last year the depart^^ment commanders were limited to such^movements as were possible with the sup^^plies regularly issued to the several^posts. This maded long marches of cavalry^especially impracticable, as there was^no authority to buy forage en route.^Any money for these maneuvers must be^taken out of the general appropriation, and^the secretary has not yet determined how^much can be spared. He has been asked^for $35,000 for the division of the Missouri,^where the principal marches will be made.^Of this S6.000 is intended for the depart^^ment of Dakota, S12.000 for the Missouri^and S17.0U0 for the Platte, where some^quite extensive marches are in contempla^tion. It is thought that the question of^allotment will be decided and the general^order issued as soon as secretary Proctor^returns from Yermont
Thereis only one opinion in the army^about the utility of these movements. They^break up the routine of garrison life, train^the troops in actual marching, afford the^opportunity for important evolutions im^^possible within the narrow limits of a post^drill ground, and. above all, test the capac^^ity of regimental and camp officers for the^active duties of the military profession.^Promotion is slow in our arm), and the^service is full of captains and lieutenants^of advanced years and expansive wai^t^girth, who are tain to tall by the wa)side^before the end of a day in the saddle or a^twenty-mile trudge with their companies.^Last year's limited maneuvers witnessed^some pathetic tragi comedies of this kind^and sent several worthy but superannuated^warriors before retiring boards, to tb^ de^^light of juniors and to the benefit of the^service. The larger strategic training of^military maneuvers can hardly be enj ^yed^within the limited scone of the movements^intended this year. Gen. Scbofield desired^to irder a general concentration of troops^by divisions, hut this was found impracti^cable with the limited funds available.^The actual marches contemplated are^those involved in a concentration by de^partments. and short practice marches by^troops or posts too remote from the o -int^of concentration. It is thought that the^regimenis at Fort Soelung will be ordered^to march across country to the upper end^of Lake Minnetonka. The maneuvers^are, in fact, little more than practice^marches it Is hop d next year to conduct^them on a large scale and give the ex^^perience some tactical value.

Geo.K. Tingle, of Glendive. Mont, is II^the city. Mr. Tingle is the gentleman who^was ^banished^ to Alaska four years ago^by President Cleveland, and has been re^siding there until very recently as United^Mat. s treasury agent His was a special^appointment created by an act of congress^i n the sole purpose of protecting tje^American fur seal islands. He has left^there now, nis successor being Cha^. j.^Goff, of West Yirginia, who was appointed^in compliment to ^ien Nathan (ion*, by^President Cleveland, after Mr. Tingle had^declined to continue in office, though^urgently requested to do so by the admin^^istration.
Manyfacts of interest were gleaned from^Mr. Tingle yesterday by an Inuki'kndknt^reporter about this far off region, lie was^the general manager of all the affairs of^St Paul and St ^.^-orge islands. There^are no courts, but any controversy or dis^pute or any trouble whatever was lett to^nlm to decide, and his ruling ended the^matter.
Theseislands are In the Aleutian group^^f Behring sea and are 1.400 miles west of^Sitka. They were discovered by Captain^i'd bloff, a Russian officer, in 17H7. They^are known as the Prybilott group, and^ere uninhabited theu, but the captain^visited the seal rookeries and realizing^their value he later went to ^ iunalaaka, one^of the Aleutian chain, where he got a num^^ber ot natives and their families and con^^veyed them to St Gaorge island. The fol^^lowing year he planted some more of the^tribe ou st Paul island and the Russian^government derived the revenues ot the^seal fisheries until the American govern^^ment purchased it from them. The islands^are each 6x12 miles in area and have forty-
thePaul and 11^seal eaten^was 100.000.^being S5.0UU^The seals are
threemiles or sea margain^tion is 237 people on St^on St George. The^for the laat year^the quota for St Paul^and 15,000 for St George,^killed and the whole process is done hy^nstives for which they receive 40 cents per^skin, netting them 840,000 annually. The^whole catch is purchased by the Alaska^Commercial company, which pays to the^United States government 8317,500 annu^^ally for 100.000 skins. In addition to this^the company is obliged to give the children^^t the Island eight mouths schooling each^year until they are is years old, medical^a'tendance and medicine also gratis, and^while they are not obliged to furnish^houses free, tney do this, and also furnish^forty tons of coal per year to St Paul's^island and twenty tons to St George.^The nati\ss get all the seal meat and are^given all the salt they want and conse-^juenlly have very little of anything to^purchase. They do all their work in sev^^en t\ days of the year and earn an average^of 8500 to the family. They have a surplus^f 8HO.O00 bearing 4 per cent, interest, and^are altogether a happy, contented, docile^class of people who would not change^i heir lot for a free bouse in Helena^They are small in stature and are known^as Aleuites, and resemble Japanese more^than they do the North American Indian.^Tbey are strongly averse to learning the^English language, and their general con^^versation is carried on in the Russisn lan^^guage, although they have tbe Alentian^language also. At school the children are^taught reading, writing, spelling, arith^^metic and geography in English. Mr.^Tingle says he always made them speak^English tii him w en they could, although^he has acquired a thorough knowledge of^the native tongue during bis four years'^residence among them. The mortality^among them is quite large. They are de^^vout Catholics, and for about eight months^n the year have nothing to do but attend^burch and amuse themselves as best tbey^can. Mr. Tingle said he noticed tbe na^^tives had a decided aptitude for music, and^n every house cou'd be found an accor-^deon. He and the schoolmaster sent for^brass and string musical instruments, and^succeeded in organ./.ing two very credita^^ble bands of music. 1 hey have little or no^out-door amusements. There is no agri^^culture and not a stick of timber on the^islands, though wild ducks abound.
Tbeweather is warm, made so by the^Japan current which strikes at that point.^In winter the thermometer never goes be^^low zero, while the average summer tem^^perature is from forty five to fifty eight de^grees above. There are no regular \meri-^can residents. Mr. Tingle had three^assistants, and during the winter six or^eight Americans reside there. The Arctic^ice comes around about the first of April^and remains until the first of May. it being^driven down by northeast winds. In sum^^mer time no artificial light is used, as da)-^ight continues as late as 11 o'clock at night^and begins again at 2 o'clock In the morn^^ing. In winter, daylight ends at 4 o'clock^n the afternoon and begins again about *^o'clock in the morning. During the winter^the natives remain in their frame houses,^furnished by the fur company. Previous^to this they lived under ground. Mr.^Tingle says there is less crime there than^n any piace in the country.
Therevenue of tbe seal islands has been^SV, 150,000 since the government purchased^them, and therefore tney have more than^paid tor themselves. When the islands^were purchased the country was ruled by^iiussia, inclu ling Behring Sea, and the^United Slates made it a crime to kill s als.^In violation of this Russia sent out several^schooners to kill seals. The duty of the^treasury agent is the protection of Amer^^ican rights and Mr. Tingle enforced^the law as best he could with one cutter^Ue saw this was inadequate for the needs^if the situation and as soon as he got there^he reported the condition of affairs to the^government and was furnished with^another cutter. In 1MH6 be seized seven^Engl is . vessels, among which were the^Onward, Thornton and Carolina. They^are now lying on tbe beach at Ounal-ska.^rotfng away. Last April the Canadian^parliament had this seizure under discus^^sion and valued the vessels tt^S153.000, which amount the United^states was asked to disgorge. With^several competent assistants, Mr. Tingle^appraised the three vessels and valued^them at $11,000. which it was agreed was a^large figure. Mr Tingle said it is an sM^scheme to send valueless vessels into the^as to catch seala If the crew succeeds^in making a catch and escape it is ail right^with them, but they are not particular, and^in such cases leave themselves liable hi^capture and then place a fabulous price on^'heir vessels. But they will not succeed in^this, he says, as tbey are nothing more or^ess than pirates, and therefore violators of^the law. To strengthen tbe law on this^point a section was passed at the last ses^^sion of congress and approved March 2^18K9. The added section was to make tbe^law apply to the ^^al fisheries, whereas it^formerly applied only to salmon fishery.^The section reads :
8.That section nineteen hundred^and fifty-six of the Revised Statutes of the^t 'mted States is berehy declared to include^and ipply to all thed -minion of the United^States In the waters of Behring sea; and it^shall be the duty of the president, at a^timely season in each year, to issue his^proclamation and cause the same to be^published for one month in at 1-ast one^uewspaner if any such there be publisbei^at each I nited states port of entry on the^Pacific coast warning all persons against^entering said waters for the purpose of^violating the provisions of said section:^and he shall also cause one or more ves^^sels of the United States to diligently^cruise said waters and arrest all persons,^and seize all vessels found to be, or to have^been, engaged in any violation of tbe laws^of tbe United States therein
In1SK7 Mr. Tingle seized sixteen vessels,^and yet the republicans said that the dem^^ocratic administration was lax in its en^^forcement of American rights in tbe Beh-^ring sea. But Mr. Tingle said that at all^times it had been very decided, yet digni^^fied in upholding the rights of this coon-^try, the republicans to the contrary not-^withstanding.
Thereare between 5.000.000 and 4.000,000^breeding seals on the islands and only the^males are killed. The seals are gradually^being reduced in numbers by the marauders^on the seas.
Mr.Tingle is very glad to be home once^more and will soon return to Glendive and^resume his business.

J.T. Connors, or ^ Tommy ^ Connors,^as be is familiarly called by old timers, is^in the city. He owned a claim at the head^of Alder gulch in 1*62 and made a pile of^money. He said he cleaned up 8300 to the^pau on his claim from the bedrock scrap^^ings. Uaviug quite a fortune be went to^New York to have a time, being then quite^a youi g man, and he succeeded very well^in this, his knowledge of the doings of^Wall street being quite pronounced before^he returned. He again got back to his^claim and soon sold out for the purpose of^operating in quartz. He always believed^and st ill believes that Alder gulch has rich^luart/, and be is at present working the^Oro Citche mine in the hope of finding tlit^rich ore body that is hidden there. Mr.^Connors is a hard worker, and bis friends^will hope that he may yet become a million^^aire, slthough he is now pretty well pro^^vided with this world's goods and seems to^enjoy life.
Chas.s. Warren said yesterday that the^Poormau mine paid its first dividend on^Monday of 815.000, and another meeting of^the directors would be held next Saturday,^at which dividend No. 2 of $20,000 would^be declared.
Mr.W. A. Clark said yesterday that the^copper agreement between the Lake, Mon^^tana and other companies would expire^the end ot this month, when some new ac^^tion would probably be taken by tbe pro^^ducers. He said there is quite a demand^for casting brands i Montana copper), and^that all tbe copper mines of Butte are^working. Mr. Clark produces at his Ari^^zona and Butte properties the electrolitic^copper, which is worth within half^cent of what Eake copper brings.^The big surplus is decreasing at^tbe rate of about twenty tons per^month, and as long as this legacy left hy^tbe Secretan syndicate is not put on the^masket. Montana producers need have no^fear of future results. Mr. Clark does not^believe that copper will again reach the^high figure the syndicate forced it to, but^be says with lake at twelve cents and casi^^ng copper at eleven cents, producers can^make money. Some lots of casting brands^were sold last week as low as nine cents^per pound.
Speakingof the report of the director of^the mint recently issued, in which Color^^ado claims the first place in tbe list of gold^and silver producing districts, Mr. Clark^said that the entire silver output of the^Colorado Smelting company at Butte,^amounting to nearly 82,000,000 annually,^also the several sampling works and the^utput of the Co ur d'Alenes is shipped to^Colorado for refinement and the whole^amount is included in Colorado's output^which gives them a big showing. But^when it comes to including copper Mr.^Clsrk says that Montana can distance all^competitors.
Mr.Clark is operating tbe Elm Orlu^Original and Clark's Fraction mines at^Butte, besides being interested in tbe Mnul-^ton and Gagnon mines. The latter is now^worked to a depth of 800 feet and Mr.^Clark says the shaft will s^son be put down^an additional 100 feet The Original is now^producing some of the best ore ever found^In tbe camp.

July 16 ^rspecial to the Inde^^pendent]^The boundary line commission^appointed by the act of the last legislature^to establish the boundary lines between^Stiver Bow, Deer Lodge, Beaverhead ar.d^Missoula counties held its first meeting in^Anaconda yesterday. The commission is^composed of L. F. Wyman. representing^Silver Bow county; Morgan Evans, of Deer^Lodge county; A. G. Noyes, of Beaver*^bead county, and U. C. Myers, of Missoula^county. All tbe members were present^and the commission organized by tbe elec^^tion ot Morgan Evans president; A G.^Noyes secretary, and G. A. Komhurg sur^^veyor of the commission. After a little^preliminary discussion the commission ad^journed to meet July 23, at Gregson's^Springs, to begin their work.
Thework of this commission will require^the running of lines through about fifty^miles of the roughest kind of country. The^acts make it obligatory on them to estab^^lish the lines very plainly, and to erect^numerous monuments, so that there may^be no difficulty in finding tbe lines. The^four counties mentioned all corner at the^same place, and all four lines are in dis^^pute. Tbe survey is to start from a point^on Mill creek, and its results are of consid^^erable importance. There has always^been considerable trouble in that locality,^and the voters of French gulch, McCune's^wood camp and adjacent places have never^known in w hich county they had a right^to vote. Some have undoubtedly voted in^several counties at the same election.
