The- n^w game- ^Playing^Thunder'* has certainly takeu^well with the population of^Montana in genera! and He-leiia^in particular, and ^f he-artily^thank the public for the interest^they have taken in it, helping^us aa they have in making it a^success, for while the talesmen^and employes ^ f our competi^^tors have been standing at their^front door wondering how long^the smoke was to obscure the^top of Mt. Helena, or talking of^other equally inure-ting tonics,^we have been busy either selling^goods or tilling orders for our^mail order department for 'he^past week has be n something^enormous, showing that when^^ever ^Harris advertises any^^thing the people in the surroud-^ing country know that he means^just what he says.
Didyou see the crowds we^had last week* As a general^tiling this is an off season with^clothing men. Those that can^get out of town and those that^can t stay at home and growl^about the state of the country^lament ^the good old times'^^when they had to pay ^100 a^sack for flour and f IS for a pair^of shirts etc., and had for their^Pullman berth the hurricane^deck of a concord coach. We^can't say why it is that we have^never had a ^growl a coming,^^our sales book don't show it for^now in mid-summer we are do^^ing what would be a good 1 usi-^ness for mid winter. Not that^we are making any money for^we are simply carrying out our^promise of giving ^a genuine^clearance s^le^ and in the most^literal sense we are having it^clearing both profit and styles.^37 different lines ^closed out^^last week. A pretty good re^^cord w.th the head of the house^away.

men are now^a trip through^or taking^their annual vacation. Now^there is no use for you to spoil^a tine suit, when you can get^a cheaper c.ie that will answer^ju6f as well. Remember that^we have but a few of our cheap^novelties left, but we do assert^without fear of contradiction^that the $10.00 suits we offer^cannot be duplicated short of^fl^OO to im.00 by our compe^^titors, while we show a suit that^has given more terror to the^trade and more satisfaction to^the wearer than any article of^commerce for years. When we^name the price and say it is all^wool^well cut and good^enough for anyone, and sold at^KK.4 0, you will*say ^Oh Pshaw^^but it is the souhd solid truth^and if you do not believe it^come and look for yourself.^That's all we have to say on^that point.

Business was rushed through at^the start and Clerk Botkin rattled off the^monthly report* at a lively rate. Fire^Marshal Witmer submitted a lengthy re^^port and laid particular stress on the need^- -nt lmproTing the service. He recommended^the purchase of an additional hook and^ladder wagon, stating that the present lad^^ders on hand could not reach over a two-^story building. He also recommended the^purchase of an additional hose reel and the^establishment ot another hose station on^the east side. He recommends the creation^of an ordinance demanding that fire escapes^be placed on all buildings two stones^high and over: also the establishing of^stand pipes on top of the high build ings^for the benefit of the fire department. As^a closing remark, be said: ^Improve your^tir^- department^ The report was referred^to the fire committee.

EngineerMiller reported in regard to^the Bosedele addition that it conformed to^the e lowerree addition, north of the Fair^ground*. The report was temporarily^tabled.
Thefire committee reported in connec^^tion with the comment about the Game^well system that the attention attracted to^it was timely and that immediate changes^should be made, especially aa to keeping^the electric light wire* at a respectful dis^^tance from the fire alarm wires. They^recommended the engaging of a person to^keep the system in repair and recotnnund-^ed the appointment of C. F. McKinnon.^Also that one of the two steam engines be^sold and the proceeds be devoted to the^purchase of an aerial hook and ladder.^1 he rapid jrrowth of the city and the erec^^tion of the nixn^ large structures deman.l^the immediate purchase of this apparatus^also another hose reel and from N00 to l.UUu^feet of hose. With this additional apparatus^the committee feels that the city will be^able to cope with any fire, and rtconi-^niended that immediate action be taken^l^oen moved to adopt the report, and that^the clerk be authored to advertise for^bids for the additional apparatus recom^^mended, and that the appointment of a^man to keep the fire alarm system in re^^pair be left with the mayor. Carried.
Loeb,of the water coromittef, submitted^the report of Engineer Miller, and moved^that 500 copies of the report be printed and^distributed among the taxpayers. Quite ^^discussion ensued on the part of Aidermsn^I.issner, but Ixjeb's motion prevailed.^I.issuer thought the expenditure of -^^^J^for advertising for water bids an extrava^gant outlay.
Thefollowing resolution was introduced^by Loeb:
Tohis honor the Mayor and City Coun^^cil^ Keaolved, That the city engineer be^instructed to make the necessary prelimi^^nary surveys between the proper point in^this city for a reservoir and the junction of^the two branches of the Blackfoot river,^near the Hidden Treasure mine, for the^purpose of ascertaining what will be the^cost of supplying the city with the water^from that source, and that be also be di^^rected to furnish an estimate of the cost of^the necessary mains, hydrants, etc., re^^quired to distribute the water that might^be so obtained throughout the city; also^the cost of a storage reservoir of sufficient^capacity. All these survey s and estimates^to be based upon furnishing the supply of^water sufficient for one hundred thousand^inhabitants.
Thedistance to the water source is 23^miles and city engineer estimated the cost^at $500. I.issner objected to this expend^^iture. He said wait and see what the leg^^islature will do. He said the board of^trade had been invited and they should be^here to discuss the proposition. Another^discussion ensued, Loeb maintaining the^board of trade did not govern the city^council while Llasner took the other side,^saying the board of trade comprised^the heavy taxpayers of the^city and could at will enjoin the council^from carrying out anything they felt like;^in fact any taxpayer could. Loeb emphat^^ically reiterated the statement made by^1.issuer that the council cannot be dictated^to by the board of trade. The wrangle^continued some time, and the resolution^was adopted, Lissner and Dunn voting in^the negative.
Thewater committee reported that the^Woolston company had kept up the re^^quired pressure, while the Hale company^did not.
apetition from residents of Hy land street^was read, praying for the extension of the^water mains, tbey being at present without^water for domestic or fire purposes. The^prayer of the petitioners were gran tad.^The following bills were read:

Thebill of Burke A Fiiigerald was or^^dered to be paid in tbe usual manner,^cutting it down half until they file art)^davits.
Thequarterly report of the city treasurer^which had been referred to a committee^was reported back as correct and was filed
Thecommittee on ordinance rep .rted^back the ordinance regulating the placing^of telegraph and telephone 11 es recom^mending its adoption. Clerk Botkin said^the ordinance imposed no penalty and was^improperly drawn. It was referred back^to the committee. They reported back the^ordinance regulating the matter of playing^music on tbe streeets without recommen^dation. Tbe council decided that all or^^ganizations shall first receive a permit^from the mayor. The penalty for^not eomplying with the order^is to be not less than 810 fine or more than^550. Lissner objected, and as usual Loeb^took htm up. Lissner said he had no use^for tbe Salvation Army, but did not think^the ordinance would work. Loeb did not^like Lissner's language towards the army^and told him so. Lisruer thought the sol^^diers should be relegated to Bodney street,^where they would be nearer to Jesus.^Loeb thought the residents of that street^bad as much to say about tbe matter as the^people of Main street. When it came to^a vote Lissner voted ave. Hoping the city^council would enforce the ordinance to th^^bitter end. The ordinance was adopted,^Harrison and Aokinson voting iu the nega^^tive.
M.Loach was duly appointed to take^charge of the n*w cemetery, and entered^into a contract with the city council. The^special ceuiet, ry coimu.ttee was discharged^and Loeb asked permission to introduce a^resolution for the appointment of a stand^^ing cemetery committee, which was^granted. The resolution was adopted over^Lissner's objection, who thought the^mayor should maac tbe appointments.^The committee is Aldermen Spencer.^Klein, Brown. Bicbards, Thieme, Don^^nelly. Dunn.
Inthe matter of tbe reward offered by^tbe city for tbe capture of burglars, dead^or alive, the council decided to pay Chas.^Krelndel 450 for tbe part be took In shoot^ing a burglar who r cently atu-mpUd to^enter Clarke, Conrad A Curtin's store.
Tberesolution introduced by Col. Curtis^at a board of trade meeting was read in the^council. A motion to table was lost and it^was referred to the fire c immittee.
Acommunication from Jos. Davis was^read asking that the council take some im^^mediate action on the water proposals re^^cently submitted. It was referred to the^water committee.
Atthe last council meeting the stre^t^railway was granted a franchise to build^to the Montana Central depot and at last^night's meeting the company submitted^some amendments to the ordinance grant^ing the same. The matter was appropri^^ately referred with Instructions to report at^the next.
J.J. Palmer petitioned for a franchise to^build an electric street railway on Broad^^way from Main street to the eastern city^units. The cars to be of the latest im^^proved pattern, to be lighted by incandes-^ent lights and the roadway to be paved. A^further peti'ion from nearly ail the proper^^ty owners on Broadway requesting that tbe^franchise be granted was also read. Re^^ferred to the street and alley committee.
Apetition signed by twenty-five persons,^including hack drivers, was read praying^that a limited number.)' hacks be per^^mitted to stand at c Ttain parts of Main^street. The petitioners feel that un^^der the existing ordinance the corporations^running hacks are favored, inasmuch as^they may have backs standing in front of^their offices. Keferrt d to police committee.
Anotherpetition requested the con^^demnation of an old dilapidated stable on^lot 9, block 21, Northern Pacific addition.^Besides being an fcbode for tramps, tbe sur^^rounding residents fear that a nre may or^^iginate there at any time. Befencd to Uie^city attorney.
Anordinance was passed under a sus^^pension of the rules r ^.ulaunf the matter^of location of job wagons and dray carts,^which pro* ides that tbe city marshal shall^direct wbtre they shall stand.
Thecity clerk was instructed to draw up^an ordinance rtgulating the license of back^drivers. Lissner thought this absurd, but^tbe motion carried. The object is to put a^stop lo the loud and vulgar street language^indulged ^^ by some hack drivers. Should^they be arrested for this their license will^be revoked.
Loebintroduced a resolution to tbe effect^that complaint baving been ni^de mat the^lot of (leorge B Foote, on Warren street,^near tbe school bouse, projects on the pub^^lic sidewalk about seventeen feet, that the^facts be ascertained. Referred to the street^and alley committee.

TheTribunal Trying iioulanger and^Associates Reaches a ^ on, luslon.
Paris,Aug. 13t'pon the opening of
tbesenate court to-day the members of^tbe right declined to take any part in the^proceedings in the case of Gen. Boulanger.^The court discussed at length its course of^procedure and its competency to try Gen.^Boulanger. It was finally decided by a^vote of 201 to 7 that the court was compe^^tent to try ^ien. Boulanger on all tbe^counts of tbe indictment. Two senators^refrained from voting The court then, by^208 votes, found the general guilty of con^^spiracy. Six senators did not vote. Tbe^court found Count Dillon and M. Bochefort^guilty of complicity in the plot it was^also decided by a vote of 19* to 9 that Bou^^langer was guilty of a treasonable attempt^against tbe state in connection with tbe^Lyons depot incident.
Thestate council has annulled tbe elec^^tions in twelve districts in which Boulan^^ger was elected to tbe council-general on^the ground that the general was not legally-^eligible for the position. Boulanger has^written a letter in which he states he gave^tbe sums of money which be Is accused ^ f^embezzling to tbe chief clerk in the war of^^fice to be used for the relief of the widows^and orphana of soldiers. Five lodgers in^the hi us- of Madame Pourpres, the former^mistress of Boulanger, have sworn that the^general was in Paris July 16, 1887. the day^on which it is alleged he visited the city in^disguise.

Th KuOalo Grain Manipulator^Behind the Ban.
Buffalo,Aug. 13 ^The grain shortage^case has taken a new turn. On complaint^of one of the losers by tbe operations of^Sherman Bros. A Co.. Manager S. F. sher^man, of the Associated Elevators, and E^C. Loveridge, his assistant, w ere arrested^last night on the charge of grand laiceuy^They remained in jail all night.
Itwas nearly noon when the case of^Stephen Sherman was reached in tbe po^^lice court. Sherman was arraigned on tb^charge of grand larceny In the first degree^in having stolen and converted to his own^use 2.270 bushels of wheat, to the value of^SI,900, from the Lskesbore Elevator com^pany. He pleaded not guilty and waived^examination. He was then ar^raigned on the charge of having sold^and delivered to unknown parties^bushels of wheat for which warehouse re^^ceipts bad been issued as depository^and warehouseman. without can^^celing such receipts. A third and f.^urtlj^charge of a similar nsture were also pre^ferred. To all the charges the defendant^pleaded not guilty, and waived examina^^tion. He was then formally held to answer^and was committed to fail in default ot^bail. It should be explained that this ac^^tion was taken owing to the fact that the^police justices cannot take bail in cases^where the penalty is over five years, ex^cept to appear at his own court for future^examination.
Froman official source it was learned^that the total shortage at different eleva^^tors amounts to $375,000. The value of the^elevator stock recovered is J200,000, so that^the loss to be met by the elevator owners is^^175.000. Loveridge was not arraignec*.^hut was simply committed to jail for fur^^ther examination, as in his case Justice^King can take bail when he is ready to fur-^nirh it.

Dr.tireen Must Go to Washington to Dick^^er With Mr. Wanauiaker.
Saratoga,N. V., special: Postmaster-^General Wanamaker is here for ten day s^or more. He talked this evening very^frankly concerning the controversy be^^tween him and Dr. Green over the rates^the government shall pay for telegraphic^service.
'Itis absurd,^ he said, ^for Dr. Green to^pooh-pooh the concessions grant* d 'o the^Western I'nion people by the government,^or to underestimate tbeir value. Tbe^privilege, have been valuable, and they^have been consistently and unflinch^^ingly protected in the possession of^them. 1 know that in Philadelphia^the poles could not be interfered with^on any pretext, and this condition ot^things continued for years. And then l^want to point out the large amount of work^which the government absolutely manu^factui es for the telegraph company. Here^the signal service people use the wires lib^^erally, and consider for a moment tbe news^which tbe agents of the Associated Press^gather in the department at Washington^and send over the wires to all parts of the^country. 1 fixed the rate at one mill a^word because 1 understood the company-^was doing tbe work for one of the press as^Bocialions at that price. More than that,^the rate has been reduced to the public sev^^eral times during tbe five years and the^government rate bas remained the same.^Then 1 heard that tbe Western I'nion peo^^ple were giving exceptional rates to large^commercial enterprises, and it seemed my^clear duty to see that the govern^meut was doing as well as any one^else. But 1 did not fix the rate 1^name absolutely, and said that I was will^^ing to negotiate the matter and settle it^tquitably. Let Dr. Green show me what^tbe cost of service is, and then we can talk.^As the rate is at present, the messages cost^far too p uch. If there is any trouble down^ic New Orleans, for example, I should like^to send down full and explicit instructions:^but I do not want to spend five or alx dol^^lars to do it, and certainly will not spend^that when somebody Is getting tbe service^lower. 1 do not care to carry on this con^^troversy In the newspapers, but Dr. Green^has published his letteisand I was in some^measure forced to follow his example so^that tbe public shall not get a one-sided^view of the matter. But it should be set^^tled n a business like way. I have asked^Dr. Green to come down to Washington,^and of course I am willing to meet him and^discuss the service and adjust all differ^encs. They certainly can never be ad^^justed by letter-writing.

NewYork, Aug. 12.^A local paper^says that Judge Ingraham granted an^order yesterday- to restrain the sugar trust^from declaring or paying any further div^^idends. The injunction was granted on^the application of K-ceiver Gray, of the^North Blver sugar refinery. Treasurer^Searles, of the sugar trust, says no in^^junction has been granted by the court on^Receiver Gray's application, and that none^will be. The grounds on which it is^sought are, he said, absurd. Sugar^trust fell from 110 to 10t5^ the first thing^ve^terday morning, but advanced later to^108V,.
