HELENA, MONTANA TERRITORY, FRIDAY MORNING, JULY 19 1889.
St.Locis Block,^main stkkkt.
Itis useless for any person,^who has been in our store for^the last month, to say ^Harris,^how's biz ;^ If they were not^blind they cou'd see ^biz was^good.*1 Why was it good with^us when every clothing firm in^Helena has been an active mem-^b*JV of the- ^kickers club.
Why,simply because we^showed about as many styles^its 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, sees just as^well made, jnst as good fitting^and much moie stylish gar^^ments, and as a natural conse^^quence buys his suit and keeps^us busy.
Didyou ever brat abont our^clearing sales I We 1. we are^about to start one, pretty soon,^and you can safely gamble that^what little fnr is left on the^hides of some of our moss backs^will fiy when they see the^prices we quote. Among them^we will mention some of the^specialties.
Don'tyou call to mind that^pretty line of Irish tweeds, the^production of Hill ^ Son, of^Dublin I We had them in two^colors^gray and brown. They^were ab ^ut as universally ad^^mired as anything we have of^^fered this j'ear, but many peo^^ple 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^same, and the consequence is,^from this day the $22 is^scratched and f 17 appears.
Butwe have plenty other^plums for those to eat who have^money to buy. The express^has brought in 200 suits, sum^^mer weights, that were pur^^chased at 65 cents on the dollar^and they go for the same per^^centage. Many of these lots^came in our first purchases and^were marked IBV, $22, up to^$2S. Now none of them are^marked over $:^o, and although^it is a rank shame, we have let^some of them out at #10. You^can borrow money at f^per cent,^a month to pay for your next^summers suit and s'ill be^ahead on nearly any of these^lots.
You'venot heard of any sun^^strokes this year, have you^ Do^yon know the reason '. We can^tell you. We have had no hot^weather; for the same reason^we have sold but few of our^summer specialties in coats and
Now,if there is anything we^pride ourselves on, it is selection^of these goods. Just take a^look at our north window. You^will seethe prettiest assortment^you ever saw in your life. Mo^^hairs, crepes, ]K^ngee serges and^silks; the variety is grent and^assortment astounding; prices^'^'..~^ j^ei cent, lower than they^would be if the season had been^propitious. We have seersuck^^ers at ft, coat and vest. We^have strij^e and cross bar liss-^tres at which our competi^^tors hold at $7. We have in^the finer 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, ail our lines are re^^markably low in furnishing^goods. In Hats, in Shoes, all^as cheap as consistent with good^grades and best workmanship.
A-cleaverhas been at the dis^posal of over 300 d.oz-n hand-^Kerchiefs at 12 1 2 cents each^^pretty things they were, too,^and neatly all gone.
Linenvests at #1 each: last^year's goods at $2.5o. Night^robes, embroidered and plain;^in fact anything you want to^make yourself a second Adonis^you can bny,

Directorsand stockholders of the Fair As^^sociation Engaged In a Lawsuit,^A suit was filed in the district court yes^^terday which has created considerable talk^throughout the city. The parties to the^suit are the stockholders of the fair associa^^tion outside of the diaectory, and the board^of directors. It appears that the board of^directors recently purchased what stock^remained in the treasury, and appropriated^the lot, amounting to 694 shares, among^themselves at the par value, 825 per share.^The gentlemen outside of the directory ob^^ject to this and now appeal to the courts to^ascertain by what privilege they were ig^^nored in ^In- disposition of the stock.
SecretaryPope stated yesterday that the^transaction was conducted legally, open^and above board and produces the minutes^of the trustees' meetings to account for the^transaction. He states that it was decided^at a meeting to make extensive improve^^ments at the grounds and also to purchase^five acres of ground lying on the east side^of the fair grounds, and as tbis^would involve a large outlay of money,^steps were taken to secure the necessary^funds. The treasurer was accordingly in^^structed, by order of the president, secre-^tar and board of trustees, to ascertain if^any stock was len in the treasury, and if^so to find purchasers for it. At a subse-^quent meeting the treasurer reported and^stated that 6W4 shares remained, which he^sold and secured 817,360 cash, which is now^in the treasury.
Onthe other hand the outside stockhold^ers claim that owing to the fact that a sur^^plus remained in the treasury such a move^^ment was uncalled for. And besides the^association bas condacted its business for^the past nineteen years on 806 shares of^the capital stock, paid in, and at this time^the stock is worth at least $120 per share,^whereas it was let go for 826 per share.
Thecase will prove one of much interest,^as leading citizens (of Helena are en^^gaged in the legal controversy, and the^ablest talent will be employed on both^sides.
Thegentlemen engaged in the suit are:^Daniel A. G Fiowerree, Shirley C. Ashby.^Chas. L. Dahler. Robert S. Hale, Char.^I.etiman. Conrad Kohrs, W. N. Baldwin,^Chas. A Broadwater, C. Wallace Taylor,^Henry Klein and Herman Gan*. plaintiffs,^and L. H. Hersbneld, Ansalem J. Dav.d-^son. Thos. C. Power, Francis Pope, Wm.^A. Chessman, Benjamin H. Tatem, Wm^B Hundley, Wm. Muth. Chas. D. Hard^and Aaron Hershfield. defendants.
Idthe complaint appears the allegation^that the capital sU^k of the concern is di^^vided into 1,000 shares of the face value of^825 each. That the plaintiffs own of the^said stock as follows: Fiowerree, II^shares: Ashby, 13; Dalher, 8; Hale, 1; Leh^^man, 4: Kohrs, 4: Taylor, 2: Baldwin 6^Broadwater 6; Bans A Klein 4. That at the^time of the incorporation of the company.^306 shares of the stock were issued to sub^^scribers therefor and no other stock was^issued until February, 1889, when the re^maining 694 shares were issued in the fol^^lowing manner at the face value of 825 per^share: (A. J. Davidson. 61 shares; T. C^Power. 96: Francis Pope. 93: W. A. Chess^^man, 71: B. H. Tatem. 64: Wm. B. Ilund^ley, 62: Wm. Muth, 61; C. D. Hard, 61^Hershfield Hros., 128 ) That the value of^ail said stock is now Siaj.'^^Jas represented^by real and personal property now owned^by the association; that it has always been^of greater value than par value and is now^worth at least 5120 per share.
Itfurther alleges that on February 9,^1H89, the said defendants who are also^directors ot the company resolved by unan^imous vote to issue said stock and sell the^same at 1U face value, giving as reasons^therefor the contemplated improvement on^a great scale of the fair grounds, whereupon^tht- stock was sold to themselves severally^in the manner above stated. That the^money realized from the sale of such stock,^viz: 817,360, was, instead of being applied^towards the contemplated improvements,^loaned to the Merchants National Bank of^Helena, for six months at 6 per cent, per^annum. That such sale was unauthorized^and not within the power of such direc^^tors to make; that it was made without^any authority from or consultation^with the plaintiff stockholders, and^secretly and privately, without any notifi^^cation to the public and without any effort^to obtain the best price therefor and for the^individual profit and advantage of the said^directors, and without regard to the inter^^est of the association or other stockholders:^that such sale was a fraud upon such asso^^ciation and a violation of the duties of said^defendants as directors; all of which infor^^mation baa just come to the knowledge of^these plaintiffs.
Thecomplaint is sworn to by Shirley C.^Ashby, one of the plaintiffs. The action is^brought by Attorneys Joseph K Toole and^W. W. Dixon, and it is understood Messrs.^Wade, Towle a Wallace have besjn retained^for the defendants.

HowSt, Louts People Have Made Fortune*^Out of Montana Mine*,
Stfaouia Republic: The people of this^city are hardly aware of the vast amount^of wealth that is yearly being poured into^St. Louis from mining investments made^by her citizens. Many, in fact, are of the^opinion that more money bas been lost in^this manner than bas ever been taken out^of the numerous boles in the ground owned^in this city. Such, however, is not the case.^On the contrary, as the result of careful in^^quiry, it has been ascertained that St. Louis^greatly profiting by the Investments ot^tbis nature in the mines of Colorado, Mon^^tana and New Mexico, not to mention Ari^^zona and Idaho. About 8400,000 is being^received monthly from this source alone,^and nearly 514,000,000 have been received^during the past four years. Tbe lat^^ter is an estimate of dividends derived^fromBtwentj-three mines only, and does^not include the earnings of properties^wned by private individuals. As com^lared with her gain the losses have been^nc.onsiderable. These have not exceeded^52,500.000, and from date at band, it really^figures up only 82,316,000. This computa^^tion includes the amount paid originally^for the mines and tbe cost of development^work. But many ot these mines In tbe^purchase and working of which these^losses have occurred, would doubtless be^^come dividend payers under eeonmleal^management. The Bi Metallic. Silver Age,^Gold King.

GLOVESOF HUMAN SKIN.
Whenthe Truth Is Known the Wearer Is^Likely to Feel I ncomfortable.
PhiladelphiaRecord: ^Gloves which^are sold as kid are often made of human^skin,^ said Dr. Mark L. Nardyz, the Greek^physician, of No. 716 Pine street yesterday.^^Tbe skin on the breast,^ continued the^physician, ^is soft and pliable, and may be^used in the making of gloves. When^people buy gloves they never stop to ques^^tion about the material of which they^are made. The shop keeper himself may^be in ignorance, and the purchaser has no^means of ascertaining whether tbe mate^^rial is human skin or not. Tbe fact is, the^tanning ot human skin is extensively car^^ried on in France and Switzerland. Tbe^product is manufactured into gloves, and^these are imported Into this country.^Thus, you tte. a person may be wearing^a distant relative's body and not
partof^know It'^Then the doctor drew
brand-newpair ot black gloves. ^There,**^he said,^ is a fine article made from the^skin of a child. As tbe bide of a kid com^^pares with that of a goat, so, of course, does^the skin of a child compare with that of an^adult and it ts much sought in France for^glove purposes.
Theskin of a man's, back makes good^sole leather,^ said the tic-tor. ^Nature^has protected man's spine by a skin which^is much heavier than that on other parts of^the body.
