VOL. 30-NO 218
HELENA, MONTANA, FRIDAY MORNING, AUGUST 16 1889.
Itis the custom of a great^many Clothing Houses, when^the end of a season comes, to^take all the old chestnuts that^have laid on their shelves since^the days of the ^bull teams.*^^pile them on a counter an I ^^f^fer them at ^'great bargains.^^Now, with us it is different.^At the end of a season our^buyer goes to market and there^buys just exactly the same^goods he bought at the begin^^ning of the season for about^one half the amount lie paid for^them at that time Our buyer^is now in market and has^shipped us per express as large^^ stock of flannel and percale^shirts and underwear as any^other house in Helena cairies at^any season of the year. I^o^not fall into that common error^of thinkine that because goods^are cheap they are no good, for^a single examination will con^^vince you that you are mis^^taken.
Whyis it, you ask. that Har^^ris always has more flannel^shirts than any other store iu^town. Why, simply, my^friend, because he sells more^than all the other houses in^Helena put together, and there^fore can afford to carry a much^larger stock; also, my kind^friend, because he always car^^ries a full stock of all the nov-^elti-s iu th- market, and in or^^der to do that must always lie^getting in new goods by ex^^press. We are now showing^an elegant line of plain and^fancy French flannels at^^'2 and I^9S, and a line of as^beautiful silk stripe shirts as^has ever been s-en in this mar^ket, at IMS. The la'est nov^^elty, however, is a handsome^Madras f hirt, fine nobby pat^terns, well made, guarai teed^not to r brink or fade, at fc*^exactly the same as brought |B^sixty days ago They are^^'plums Piuck them before^they fall
OIK PERCALE SHIRTS.
Inthis line we absolutely defy^competition. Nothing can^equal us. We have a larger^stock an i better assortment of^patterns than any house be^tween Sr Paul and Portland^Otm are not old, shelf-worn^goods, hnt new. beautiful pat^^terns and the latest noveltie*^to be found in the eastern mar^kets. Bought from a lions1^that needed money and at less^than one-half of what they were^worth, we now propose to^jrive our customers the benefit^of our purchases and sell them^the same way We have di^^vided them into three Hms^^one at -'.V. one at f^^^c and one^at !Sc. Not one of these shirts^ever sold before for less than^KL and some as high as $'2.^They are piled in our doorway^Give them a glance as you pass^aiid you will see that we nit-an^business.
Ah'here is where we shine.^Here is the place that we can^show two lines for every one^shown by any other house in^town. Show us the house that^shows two lines of fancy bal-^briggan underwear at 7.V a^sui , four lines both fancy and^white at tl. and innumerable^lines at ^1.60, $t and a^suit, and then we will confess^that we are beaten. Also, light^weight cashmere, merino, cam^el's hair and oth^-rs that lack of^space and time prevents lis^from enumerating All we can^say is, ' Come and see us,^ and^if you don't go away with a^supply of clothes for 1800 it^will be because you are broke^and haven't the money to pay^for it.

CheltenhamBeach, Chicago, Aug. is.^The friend, of the late Dr. Cronin held a^^eotioD of the annual Clan-na Gael picnic^here to day with a large crowd preeent^The amuaemenu consisted of athletic^games, which were followed in the after^^noon and evening by speeches by Con(rrea^-^mtn Koran, of Cleveland, Hon. M. JL^K^a^s^f Philadelphia. Coogreaiman Law-^IB of Chicago. John I)evoy, of New York.^Thomaa I^ruitt, of Detroit, and others.^A long statement accompanying a pream^^ble and resolutions was read and adopted.
Itrecognizee fealty to this nation as the^i.r-- and highest obligation, and next there^^after the pledge to support the cause of^Irish liberty, to be secured under the lead^ership of rarnell and Gladstone. The^statement then read.:
Resolved, That we denounce with all^the force of indignant language our utter^abhorrence of the assassination, murder^and moral assassination resorted to by the^murderers of Dr. Cronin to cover up the^embezzlement of money and the betrayal^of the people whoae devotion to the cause^of liberty too often makes them the victims^of designing knaves.
Resolved.That, knowing Dr. Cronin to^have been a patriotic, high-minded, pure^Christian gentleman utterly incapable of^playing the role of a sycophant or falsely^loving the life of a spy. we brand as moral^assassination and a malicious libel the re^^port that he was an agent of England: on^Hi-- contrary, knowingjhini to be a defender^of honesty and truth, we hereby de-lare^it to be our solemn conviction^that for his faithful adherence to^honesty and truth he was foully murdered^to prevent the exposure of the actual crim^^inals, who have dragged down that cause^in blond and tears into our Uethsemane.
Resolved,That the crime of this most^atrocious murder calls for all the energies^of our civilization for a speedy and extreme^punishment by law. and we pledge our^support to the authorities until every^guilty man shall have answered to the law^tor his participation in the most devilish^murder which has reddened the annals of^crime.
Theanti-Cronln section of the Clan-na-^Gael demonstration at Ogden's grove drew^a large crowd of people. The speakers^were escorted to the grove by the Clan-na-^UaW guards, the Hibernian rifles and Chi^^cago Zouaves. It was af it 1 o'clock when^they arrived. In the party were Senator^I bos. K. Grady, of New York, Rsv. Geo^W. PepU, of Ohio, Hon. O'Neil Ryan, of^St. Louis, and Judge Kitzgerald, of Cincin^^nati. An ^ddr^ ss was read and^adopted. It opened with a declaration of^lojalty to the laws and principles^of the American government and un^^changeable sympathy with the cause of^Irish liberty which is to be worked for on^a plan to be decidrd on by the people of^Ireland themselves The address contin-^Mi ^We fully recognize further that des^^titute of those means of asserting their lib^^erty, which would make a revolution Jus^^tifiable, we are willing to aid them in such^P .'^eful measures as they may choose to^adopt in bringing the government of Eng^^land to a sense of the duty that^It owes to justice and to^Humanity by restoring to the Irish people^the right to make their own laws acd. to^live in self-respecting manhood upon their^own soil. It has been asserted by those in^^strumental in covering us with defamation^that we wish to screen th~ murderers of^Dr. Cronin, We meet here to day among^other reasons for the purpose of vehement^^ly denouncing bis atrocious murder in our^capacity as American citizens, but^we hold that as Irish Americans^we have no more right to be^held responsible for that four^atrocity than has any other element of our^body politic for crimes committed by per^^sons to whom they are kindred. W e de^^voutly hope that the officers authoriznd by^law will succeed in bringing to justice both^assassins of Dr. Cronin. We repudiate^both as American citizens and as Irish-^Americans the claim made by the enemies^of our race that the Irish element has any^desire or any purpose to make^the soil ot America the theatre^of acta of vengeance because of^'ends, factions or disagreements growing^out ot political differences or personal^heart burnings. We return our sincere and^most grateful thanks to Hon. J. M. Thayer,^governor of Nebraska, for his magnani^^mous defence of the honor of our race^.gainst the reckless slanders of a society of^professional foreigners.

Mr- Terry Make, a Move to Have the^Justice Arrested.
Stockton,Cal., Aug. 15 ^A warrant^was issued to-day for the arrest of Stephen^J. Fiold on complaint of Mrs. Sarah^Althea Terry, who charges him with com^plicity in the killing of her husband, David^S. Terry, at Eathrop yesterday. Sheriff^Cunningham left here for San Francisco^this afternoon to arrest J ustlce Field. The^attorneys who have been engaged to con^duct the defense of Deputy Marshal Nagle^promised that Justice Field would appear^when wanted, but Mrs. Terry's complaint^was made notwithstanding.
TheItinera! of Terry will be held Friday.^The body is still at the morgue, and Mrs.^Terry has not left it at any time.
SsnFrancisco, Aug. 15.^The killing^of David s. Terry by Deputy Marshal^Nagle is still the chief topic of discussion^here, though no new developments have^arisen betond what was outlined in the^dispatches yesterday. Justice Field re^^sumed his judicial duties to-day and sat in^the circuit court with Judge sawyer and^Judge D. E. Brewer, of Kansas. He re^^ferred freely iu conversation with attor^^neys and his associates to the exciting inci^^dents of yesterday's tragedy. He is still^constantly under the protection of a dep^^uty marshal, as is also Judge sawyer.
Thepreliminary hearing of Deputy Mar^aha! Nagle will come up befurr Justice^Peace at Stockton Wednesday next A^strong effort will be made after the exami^^nation to secure bail. If it is refused the^matu-r will be appealed. U nited .states^Marshal Franks has secured from Nagle^the details of the affair. Nagle says he is^confident that Terry drew back his hand^after striking Justu e Field, for the purpose^of pulling from his coat a knife he^was presumed to carry, as be^once made affidavit that ne always^went armed, it is the theory ot those^about the 1 nited States marshal's office^that Mrs. Terry when she threw herself on^her husband's body took a weapon from^him. though when the body was searched^no weapon was found.
Thewarrant upon which Justice Field's^arrest is expected to be made was issued by^a justice ot the peace of Stockton, and it is^aadressed to the sheriff of the county. No^course has been outlined by the friends^of Justice Field as to the action he will^take under the circumstances beyond the^statement made by the attorneys for Nagle^in Stockton to-day that Justice Field would^appear at any time if desired. The war^^rant for the arrest of justice Field was is^^sued solely upon the complaint of Mrs.^Terry, who did not witness the shooting.^Before the coroner's jury no evidence^whatever was given connecting the justice^with the tragedy in any way beyond the^fact that he was assaulted by Terry.

itwill not be many years before the state^of Montana will be supplying the entire^northwest with coal and building stone.^Her coal fields are vast and already they^are furnishing fuel for the various rail^^roads and smelting enterprises. Her de^^posits of marble, granite and sandstone^have hardly been touched. Mr. Tostevin,^of the firm of Tostevin a: Son. prominent^monument builders of St Paul, was re^^cently in Montana. He is known all over^the northwest. He stated that Montana^was blessed with the finest stone on God's^footstool. With the exception of the sand^^stone used in the Bailey building in this^city, all the large business blocks and real^dences in course of erection are being built^of stone from Montana's quarries. The^fact that Montana has excellent stone is^rapidly becoming known and yesterday^the first shipment ever sent out of^the territoty left here for Seattle. The^Helena Stone Sawing and Polishing Co.,^made the shipment which is the first to fill^a siS.OOO contract Tbe stone is granite,^and is to be used in the Butler block.

At the company's office^yesterday an Independent reporter was^shown a specimen of granite from New^Hampshire, a great deal of which has been^used in St Paul. For beauty it does not^compare with tbe Montana stone, nor is it^as free from mineral. The company ex^^pects soon to ship large quantities of the^granite to Spokane Falls.
Specimensof red sand stone and sand^stone of throe light shades from the^quarries of Gallatin county were also seen,^and they seem to be of very fine quality.^Tbe Helena company is rushed with busi^^ness, and give employment to seventy five^men at the quarrks and the yards in Hel^^ena.

TheyViolate a City Ordinance aad the^Police Charge I poa Them.
TheSalvation Army, thirteen strong,^marched up Main street as usual last even^^ing. A large crowd had collected on the^street in anticipation ot what would follow,^it having been given out that the army^would be arrested for violating the ordi^^nance adopted at Tuesday night's meeting^of the city council, which provides that no^music shall be permitted on the street^without first securing a permit from^the mayor. The army paraded as usual^Wednesday night, but were not molested.^It was decided to give them an opportunity^of learning that such an ordinance was In^effect As the soldiers were passing in^front of the Merchants National bank last^evening, sounding their drums and tapping^the tambourines. Sergeant Nicholson, who^was waiting for their arrival, jumped In^front of the column and called a halt, and^addressing Capt. Nellie Keefe, said:^^Madam. I demand your arresi:^ and turn^^ing to his officers called out: ^Officers, ar^^rest these men.^ Policemen McKenzie,^Best, Ltpplncott and Martin surrounded^tbe red coats, while the sergeant took a po^^sition at the head of the column and the^march continued. An attempt to bang the^base drum by one of the soldiers was^quickly stopped. During the march the^street was swarmed with people shouting^and cheering and evidently pleased at the^resulL Fully three hundred people were at^tli- police station when tbe officers arrived^with their prisoners. They marched into^the office and their names were placed on^the uocket These were: Capt Nellie^Keefe, Lieut Mary Chappel and Privates^Fred Elcoe, Jerrv Weller, O. E. Anderson,^Fred Mundu A. Ludwig, Frank Chandler.^Krir-k Dickson,' Gua. BarquiaL John Phil^^lips, G. W. Moody and Chas. Kemp. The^prisoners appeared to enjoy the affair and^indulged in general merry comment and^laughter. Capt Keefe said it was a happy^termination of her 20th birthday, which she^celebrated yesterday at Albambra Springs^with several other soldiers. She was much^^ncerned lest her meeting should not be^held, and sent a messenger to have the^adjutant hold the services. She said she^knew nothing of the ordinance^and did not see by what right^the city council interfered with^their religious liberties. She bad not had^aa opportunity of consulting their legal^~dviser, and thought the action was a dis^^grace to the city. Jerry Weller said they^had been stoned on Main street Wednes^day night and the officers did not interfere^in their behalf. He said he was a taxpayer^and helped to support the police force, and^intended to inform tbe mayor. ^Well, you^can all go now,^ said Sergeant Nicholson,^^but 1 want you to be on hand for trial at^f:30 to-morrow morning.
Can'twe have our flags and drums ^^^asked Captain Keefe. ^No; we'll have to^keep them for the present,^ said the ser^^geant ^Then we would just as lief stay,'^spoke up the captain, and Nicholson said :^^Stay goe.*.
Theywere all searched then and placed^In ]atl, the women being put in the bridal^chamber. ^God will be with us in jail,^^said the captain, and tbe chorus responded^^Amen ^ They all began singing then,^but alter half an hour's time concluded they^would go home, and m^ informed the ser^^geant They were released, but did not^get their flags and musical instruments.^They will have a bearing in J udge Sanders'^court this morning.
'Ihe salvation Army held a meeting at^the barracks after being Ii ^^ rated, which^was the occasion of general jollification.^They seemed to be happy in knowing they^were arrested for Jesus.
STONE CUT r ERS STRIKE.
TheWorkmen on the Power Block Have^a Ortevanre, Which I. Settled.^On Tuerday the stone cutters employed^at the yard on Helena avenue in cutting^granite for the Power St Keefe block went^out on a strike. The men are members of^the National Stone Cutters' union and^their grievance was against Shaffer ^fc^Bead, architects, who have the contract for^the building. This firm had an advertise^ment inserted in the Minneapolis Journal^for fifty non-union stone cutter, and stated^that 45 to 96 per day would be paid for^good men.
Attbe quarry from which the stone is^being taken, about three and one-half^miles southeast of this city, Shaffer ^^ Read^have a crowd of ^scab^ men at work, it is^said, and noticing tbe advertisement in the^Minneapolis psper the Helena stone cut^ters concluded they were to be let out The^contractors sub let tbe work at the He.en.^yard to the Htlena Co-operative Gran^^ite and Sandstone company, of which^Henry Duignan is the president and bis^brother, James Duignan, is also a member.^1 his company took a contract for two sto^^ries of the building and are strong union^men, who paid the scale of So and received^a commission of 50 cents for each atone^cuttei employed.
QOaTuesday the stone cutters quit work^and sent a note to that effect to Shaffer .v^Read. Yesterday a delegation of the union^leJ on T. C. Power, and the result was^it the stone work was taken away from^^ architects, and a contract entered Into^between eighteen of the union men and^Mr. P'^wer. Tbe latter was very lilteral^with the men and agreed to Day them SO per^day ol ten hours and nine on Saturday,and^$12 for working on Sunday. He wants the^work rushed and if completed by Decem^^ber 1, will pay the men a large bonus. Tbe^work is now entirely in tbe hands of the^union and they will take hold Saturday,^when the Duignan Bros, will have finished^the second story. The union men will^clear out the ^scabs^ at the quarry and^put in their own men. The difference in^tbe scale offered by Mr. Power is made up^owing to the fact that tbe men will work^ten hours per day, while heretofore they^put in but nine hours. Tbe trouble is now^over and the Minneapolis men who may-^have been attracted by the advertisement^111 be disappoiuted.

Keglstrationbegan yesterday. Helena^voters are required to register at room No.^20, Pittsburg block, or at the engine bouse^opposite the court bouse. But very few^names were registered yesterday. The^system is a cumbersome one and more red^tape has to be gone through with than is^necessary. Instead of placing your name^and the number of your residence you are^required to give your age and place of^birth. Were the system less cumbersome^than it is registration would probably be^more rapid The fact remains, however,^that you rsnist vote unless you register.

Engineeringand Mining Journal, Aug.^10: As we intimated in our last issue, an^Important meeting to-.k place last Friday^In Boston between the representatives of^tbe principal lake copper companies and^those of the largest producers of easting^copper. The object of that meeting was to^find common ground lot a binding agree^^ment to embrace all the principal pro^^ducers of copper in the country regarding^the minimum selling prices of lake copper^and casting copper in future. Nothing^definite has yet transpired aa to the result^of that meeting, but a committee of^three, consisting of Col. Livermore, Ed^^mund Stanton and Wm. Keyser, were^appointed to settle details. and It^is believed that the intention is to bring up^the price of casting copper to about lie and^to retain the price of Lake at 12c as before,^and thus restoring tbe market to the nor^^mal condition, in which Lake brands us^^ually command a premium of about 5^c. to^1c. over tbe inferior sorts. Tbe feeling In^the market generally Is rather hopeful,^and this is especially tbe case In regard to^the prices of casting copper, in which It is^not expected that there will be any further*^decline. In our opinion the w ser course^would have been to reduce tbe price of^Lake copper rather than advance the value^of casting copper, as such action can only^have tbe result of Increasing the produc^^tion, and that muat be fatal to any lasting^stability in tbe market.
TheMiin Idea of Humor.
TheMadison, Wis.. Journal relates that^a few evenings ago Gov. Hoard was sitting^on a neighbor's veranda with a party of^ladies and gentlemen, while a young lady^was playfully dallying with a hose on the^lawn in front Occasionally she^roguishly permit some spray tot^the party, at once naively apologizing for^her dereliction. Finally, the governor,^who was in a mood for fun himself, quiet^^ly arose, and with a twinkle In bis eye.^sau itered down the avenue in tbe^direction of the young lady, of course,^intending when a good opportunity^offered, to seize the hose and give the^roguish girl a good drenching for her mis^^chievous pranks. But the latter was keen^^ly on the alert, and, when the governor^was all but ready to spring bis joke, she^suddenly whirled and turned lb^squarely on him. A powerful^struck the manly executive t^^festively a- out the face, snl wet^from bead to foot While tbe deluged gov-^ernor.spluttering and dripping.stood dumb^^founded on tbe lawn, his fair tormentor^fled across tbe street, her merry laughter^being echoed by the many amused^tors
