itgives as pleasure to announce to^onr readers that the rapid growth of The^Independent iu circulation, amounting^to nearly 50 per cent, in the pant year,^ompels us to increase our facilities and^present the paper in enlarged and im^^proved form, with new features in every^department, as soon as the necessary me^^chanical changes can be made, which^will be in a few days.
TheIndependent long ago distanced^all competitors in this new-paper field^and has steadily held its place as the^journal of largest circulation and influ^^ence between St. Paul and Portland. Bat^it is not satisfied with past achievements.^The steady growth of our city^and the territory, which has been re^^flected in our prosperity, warrants us in^giving to onr readers the benefit of in^^creased resources, and we intend that^when Montana becomes a member of the^great sisterhood of states her leading^newspaper shall at once take rank with^the foremost journals of the country.
Wepropose to let the improved Inde^^pendent speak for itself, only promising^that it will be the newsiest, the liveliest^and the most independent newspaper^ever published in this town. But it will^be a Democrat every time.
FA1THFIL I'l IILIC SERVANTS.
TheMontana constitutional conven^^tion passes into history with a reputa^^tion of which any body of men might be^proud. The members have been earnest,^industrious and faithful. Their pro^^ceedings have been marked by dignity^and decorum, and their work, as a whole,^by wisdom anl justice.
V e have already pointed out the de^f ects, as we regard them, of the new in^^strument. They are all curable and are^not so serious as to call for antagonism^to the constitution in its entirety.
Partylines were rarely drawn during^the procee lings, and even at such times^the discussions were never unseemly.
Itwas a representative body, fairly^made up from the great body of the peo^^ple, and the members return to their^places in the ranks sure of the approval^of their work at the polls.
Tothem all. men of all parties alik-^.^we say, ^Thauk you and lio.Npeed'^^Hurrah for the State of Montana!
backfurther, and they come much more^directly from the people than the com^^plaint of 1S^5.
Tobegin with, the president himself^is the result of a fraud upon his own^party. The democratic convention last^year made the mistake, in geography, of^not nominating Gov. Gray. Gray could^have carried Indiana; democrats knew^it; republicans would not deny it.^Thurman could not carry Ohio, for it is^a republican -tate, and is only carried^by democrats when it is of no national^value. The refusal of the democratic^coQveatiou to nominate an Indiana man^on the ticket was the opportunity seized^by Harrison's friends, or rather by the^men who hoped to make something out^of Harrison's candidacy, for it is very^doubtful if he has any friends. The^republican convention nominated Gen. ;^Harrison because the Indiana delegates^made the other delegates believe that^Harrison was very popular in his own^state and that his nomination would^make the state surely republican. But^after the nomination had been secured^the Indiana republicans admitted that^this was a false pretense; that Harrison ,^was not popular in his state and that^the presidential candidate would be^beaten iu his own home unless extraor^^dinary efforts were made to save him.^The republican national committee had^to send a disproportionate amount of^money and oratory into Indiana to save^the state from the effects of Harrison's^unpopularity in that section of the^L'nited States where he Is best known.^^ if course Harrison had to have the help^of republicans iu his own state, and the^number of offices be has given these^people since March 4, is proof that they^served him last year not for love of him^but for places promised in advance.
Therepublican party has fouud out^that it was led by false representations^to nominate a man for whom it never^did and never will care one red cent.^The signs of dissatisfaction are more^abundant among the rank and tile than^among the politicians. The party was^imposed upon last year, it gained alniott^nothing by it and it is sore over the re^^sult.
InNew York the friends of Piatt, who^distributes the patronage, are just as^frank in their expressions of ill will^toward and contempt for the administra^^tion as the friends of Miller, who ^fell^MMio1 t ie breastworks,^ and was care- '^fully left there by the president. Gen.^Pat Collins, who has dropped out of poli- i^tics, says that he never knew a time^when in Massacnusetts the republicans^were in so bad a shape, aud the demo- :^cratssowell organized aud confident. .^There are abundant indications that in i 'vj^Illinois the republican party has passed^its highest point and is beginning to go^down hill. In Ohio the probability is^strong that Mr. Campbell will be^nominated and elected governor, which^will be very gratifying, but a good deal^of corroborating testimony would be i^necessary even in that event to justify !^the democrats in regarding Ohio as a |^doubtful state in a presidential year.
Theadministration is making a dee- i^perate effort to get Virginia away from I^the democrats this year. But when Ma-^doiie said that the warring republican^factions in Virginia had buried the^hatchet so deep that the handle was^sticking out in China it was evident that^he had entirely defeated the antl-^Mahone men in the contest for federal^patronage. The onlv thing that has^been eiv ^n to an anti-Mahone man is the^internal revenue collectorship at Peters^^burg, given to Mr. Brady, who is re^^ported to have found that he cannot ap^^point his own deputies because Mahone^has selected them for him. The anti-^Mahone men will not keep quiet long^under this defeat.
Thereis nowhere any suggestion that^while Harrison is growled at by the poli^^ticians he is gaining strength with the^people. The civil service reformers have^I found out that the president has broken^his word to them. The negroes iu Ala^^bama, South Carolina and Virginia are^complaining that they have been duped.^The old soldiers are beginning to fear,^what Private Dalzell openly charges,^that the oppressive measures Secretary^Noble h trying to apply 10 Corporal Tan^^ner mean that the administration, to^wit, Benjamin Harrison, is trying to re-^pndiate the pledges it made to the Grand^Army people last year. His tribe is^rapidly growing weary ^^f Benjamin.

Thetrue reason why the lesd miners of^Montana get no relief from the administra^^tion is correctly explained in the Provi^^dence Journal. ^What adds to the per^^plexity in the present case,^ it says, ^is^that Steve Elkins and his friends, men not^without influence at Washington, have cer^^tain mining interests that would be injuri^^ously affected by what the Montana people^demand. It will be interesting to see how^the administration will extricate itself from^the entanglements that are gathering^around it.

Havethe republican dark-lantern bri^^gade been tampering with all their registry^agents throughout the territory as they^have in Custer county'.' It will be well^for democrats everywhere to watch and^see if these registry agents are to be mere^spies for their party or whether they at^^tend to their lawful duties. By the way,^that confidential circular of the Custer^count^ republicans will make an excellent^campaign document.

Geo.K. Woolston, of water notoriety,^returned to Helena yesterday from an ex^^tended trip from ocean to ocean. He has^come back to observe what action, if any,^will be taken by the city council regarding^the bid recently submitted by him for sup^^plying the city with water. Speaking of^his consolidation scheme to an Indepen^^dent representative, he said that he had^everything in readiness to proceed on a^large scale to extend the water service^The consolidation, which includes four^water companies of Helens, has been capi^^talized on a basis of SI.000,000 ^This en^^tire sum,^ said Mr. Woolston, ^I bare se^^cured through the issuance ot bonds and it^is our purpose, should we get the^contract, to expend every dollar^right away for the extension of the^service and to purchase a new and unques^^tioned source. 1 havt no secrets or schemes^in this matter, it is a simple business pro^^position.^ Regarding the new source he^said he could not tell where it is at present^on account of obstacles mat might be^thrown in bis patd when the time comes to^purchase i^. but he would not hesitate to^say that it will furnish a great deal more^water than any of the sources of supply^presented by the city engineer. The coui-^; pany he represents he said, is willing to^make a contract wi-.h the city with a i^ro-^j viso that tb- city may purchase the
jworks Whenever they choose, if they^I desire to o^n their own works.^, In asking S20.000 torrent of the fire fcf*^^i r*.n.U 0Ltne el,y- he ^id he proposed^I adding fifty additional hydrants, which^j will cost the city nothing, and to extend^the mains ail over the city, and to make it^perfectly safe from fire. He will further^guarantee land make a contract to^keep a sufficient storage supply of^water for tire purposes available at all^times, and to furnisb ample water for pri^! vate use and commercial purposes, such as^! manufactories, elevators, etc., at all time.';^and if be shall tail in this any time to pay^a forfeit. ^J would not make a propon-^tion of this kind if l was not absolutely^certain that 1 can do what 1 shail^j claim to do,^ continued Mr. Wool^ston, ^and we are starting out^I ^^a basis to supply a city of 100,000 or 300.- I^i 000 people, and we shall guarantee to lay i
pipeall in good order and have every por-^I tion of the city safe from tire before Janu- '^ary 1.
I His proposition, he said, comprehends^I eight or ten times more water than the^Lump gulch scheme, which he considered^an unreliable one, and when that is ex^^hausted his new, but yet unknown source,^he said, will furnish eight or ten times as :^much water outside an^l apart from the I^four companies now furnishing water to^the city and wbich are in the consolida- ^^tion. He then spoke of cities which owned I^their water supply and cited Spokane i^Kails, winch had what was supposed to be^an excellent service, but he thought the^great difficulty to be met with was that a^city could not secure money fast enough to I^extend their works, and then if a calam^lty should overcome the city, such^as was witnessed at Spokane Falls, there^is nobody to whom the blame could be at- '^tached. He further stated that the reports !^being sent out about Helena's poor condi^^tion toflhght fire ^rere doing damage to the^town, and it will be difficult to secure^money for any public enterprise. He said^the city was not in a dangerous condition,^and ail that is required at this time is addi^^tional apparatus and a good paid depart^^ment.
Hedid not care to express his opinion on^how the public may or may not ne bene^^fited by being taxed to maintain their^works, believing that bis opinion would be^misconstrued.

TheAoar-onda Will Rnild a Refinery Near^Three Forks.
Itis now stated on good authority that^the Anaconda company will erect its cop^^per r^ finery, to be of the new electric pro-^^SMft near Three Forks, at the junctton of^the Jefferson and Madison rivers. Marcus^l^aly recently bonded a tract of land there^about two miles square, from the Kagllab^syndicate which bought a large tract of^land around Three Forks several years^ago. Mr. Hun'er, the syndicate's agent^recently went to Kngiand to secure the^necessary deeds to make the transfer. The^amount of the bond is not publicly stated,
butthe sale will involve several hundred^thousand dollars.
Theelectric copper refinery to be built^will be a mammoth enterprise, giving em^^ployment to a sufficient numbar of people^to support a town of at least 2,000 people,^and as it will be tributary to Helena the^benefits accruing from a business stand^point are apparent. Water power and^plenty of it is a necessary adjunct to^such works, as it is proposed to establish,^and after careful investigation the Ana^^conda company has decided upon the site^where the Jefferson and Madison rivers^meet as the most suitable location for the^refinery.
Atpresent nearly all the copper matte^manufactured at the smelters of this com^^pany is sent to Swansea. Wales, for refine^^ment.

Thkrepublican politicians are com^^plaining of the president becaase he^does not make appointment* more rapid^^ly.

t.eneraJTurner Summoned to Come Home^at Once-The Encampment.
TheMontana militia is at a standstill.^Tbe thirteen companies throughout the ter^^ritory are red-eyed because their uuiforros^and supplies, recently purchased, are not^being distributed. Most all the g^M^^s or^^dered are in Uelena, but Ordnance Officer^John K. Miller, says he cannot move until^Adjutant-tieneral Turner returns to Mon^^tana. Mr. Turner is now in Seattle, and it^is generally understood he has made tbat^place his permanent residence. Gov.^White is being besieged with letters of in^^quiry from all quarters, and his excellency^has telegraphed the general to return at^once or send in his resignation. Mr. Tur^^ner will probably be h--r ^ in a few days^and make tbe distribution and relieve tbe^military officers from the dilemma.
BatteryA, of Helena, is on its ear and^will probably muster out. Their griev^^ance is that they were ignored in the dis^^tribution of tbe appropriation. Tbe asked^for a few guns, which would cost at least^8^S.000, but instead tbe applicants for frying^pans and uniforms bad their every request^granted. The governor regrets tbat this^thing happened. H said the appropriation^was not sufficient for the entire depart^^ment, which is steadily growing, and espe^^cially in Butte.
Atthe request of many tbe annual en^^campment has been postponed until some^time in Ootober.
