TheLong and the Short^of it
Is,that our resumption ot tti^unlaundried shirts was a mat^^ter of necessity, not of choice.^The demand was universal, and^as we are servants of the dear^public we could not but listen^to the call. Now, as a matter^of fact, ther- is no money in^them for M, because how mnch^money can be made out of a^garment when sold at popular^prices of BOt , 7f^c. 90. You^must examine these goods if^only out of curiosity, because it^is really a wonder how they^can be produced for the money.
Our50 CENT garment is a^marv. 1 of economy and neat-^nees. It is well made, full cut,^and good material. True, not^the finest, but good enough for^any man who has plenty of use^for his money.
Butthe wonder of the 1 Un^^laundried Shirt age^ is our 9o^CENT production -New York^mills muslin.22oo linen bosoms,^cut in and backed with butch^*^rs' linen, reinforced pack and^front, gilled seams, continue ^il^^stays, and in total everything^conducive to ^longevity, ' in a^shirt, durability and neatness.
Thereare many points we^would like to dwell upon, had^we time and space, but one we^cannot pass is our department^of Boys and Children s Cloth^ing. The ladies of Helena will^tell you where to rind tr ! best^assortment, and any one you^speak to will tell yon that for a^tasty, nobby garment,, no one^in Montana tan show you one-^half the styles or show as many^novelties as are on our counters.
Don'tfail to see them, espe^^cially the lines of Kilts and J-r-^seys: several shades, in ages^from 2 1-2to 1^^. It is our aim^this season to capture the trade^of al\ from the di^apest to the^finest grades We shew a line^of Rood wash satinetts as low^as #1.7.-. and have them as tine^as $2^^ for the youngsters, who,^in time will vote.

George William Curtis Tells How^Presi6^nt Harrison Has^Kept His Pledges
PromitetMade to the People Which^The Head of the Nation Hat^Broken.
TheSpeakers Belle** That Ueaplte Ad^verse CrttlrUm the Cauee He Cham^^pions Is tinlutllK
Philadelphia,Oct. 1 ^The National^Civil service R^-f ^rm League met in an^^nual aeMion here to-day. The following^are extract! from the annual address by^its president, Hon. U*^rge William Curtis^of New Tork. The speaker began with^t if statement as to the explicit pledKes of^the republican platform In the last national^campaign, and a reiteration of these^p ^ it^s by Harrison to preserve and extend^civil service reform in letter and spirit^The long address is nearly all devoted to^au inquiry ai to whether or not those^pledges have been fulfilled. As a sigD^board to show in what direction he was go^in it. the speaker pointed out that during the^first rive months of the present admmistra^tion. Assistant Postmaster General Clark^son has removed 15,000 fourth class post^^masters, or more than one-fonrtb of the^entire list. He says: ^It is not an answer^to say reform is not favored by a maj irity^of the people, the only way in which the^views of tbe majority can be known is by^the result of an election, and this adminis^^tration, elected on a platform as dis'inc ly^pledged to civil service reform as to a pr^-^t-ctive tariff Whether or not It is the^wish of the majority , it is certain that the^chief executive stxnds solemnly pledged to^it^ The speaker then quoted from admin^^istration newspapers from various parts of^the country jeers and words of contempt^for reform of the civil service: touched^upon the open and adverse declarations or^significant silence in various recent repub^^lican gatherings and conventions, and finds^that eminent members of the party, official^and otherwise, only spurn such reform and^even in the cabinet, three members d^ cline^to give an op*n adherence to it. He con^^tinued as follows: ^While tnis is the pub^^lic sentiment of the party pledged in all^ordinary met'uds. what is tbe executive ac^^ion'.' Dies that conform to the platform^proxise. and the president's pledges^ The^knowledge of every cltii -n In his own^community answers.the daily record of the^newspapers for s^ven mon hs answers. The^general political prescription policy, which^Preni.!^-nt Harrison, when senator, defined^as ^a frank and bold, if brutal method of^turning men and women out simply for^political opinion,^ the clean sweep, which^Is proceeding in the p ^^'^ ft: '^^. the alarm^which pervades every br nch of the service,^the ..pen Migrant contempt for pub'ic^opinion, for private information and for^party promise, which was shown In the^appointment of the late commissioner of^pensions, the executive refusal to in-lade^the census service In the rules of the re^^moval of public officers, conspicuously^flcteo by character and experience, who^have absolutely and confessedly disregard^^ed politics in their devotion to office duty^and public service, all these facts and such^as these answer the question, how I.as the^executive action conformed to party prom^^ise and the president's pbdg^ T'
Furtheral ing he said: ^The president^iias selected an admirable civil service com^^mission. Every worker is a sincere believer^to the necessity and practicability of re^^form, and it* vigilance and vigor are the^I est earnest of its effective service. He^has refused also to extend the time ap^^pointed for including the railway mail ser^vice within the rules, and be has author^^ized the puhllcaMon of eligible lists. Be^^sides these few ex'-cutlve acta, tbe signifi^cance of which is destroyed by his general^executive course, there is little that shows^anv effective party regard for the resount^lng promises of the platform.^ The^speaker finds, however, that the reform of^tbe civil service is making headway in the^sentiment among the people. Aa with all^proarrees worth fighting for the contest is^stubborn and resolute. Delays and defec s^are inevitable, but temporary, the ad^^vance sure.

Tbe complainant is W. s.^Wallaae, of Sawyer. Wallace A- Co , New^Tork. Wallace avers that he has contracts^for large amounts of October Pork; that^under the rule, as it now stands, pork^packed during this month is not deli ve: able^until it has remained In cold storage tnirty^days, and that men who have sold com
plainantOctober pork, being short are^seeking by this meats to fill their contracts.^On beba t of the defendants it is admitted^tnis pork must remain in cold storage thirty^days, but they contend that it is deliverable^on contracts, and declared that to rule^otherwise was to indict a hardship on the^^shorts ' because of the complainant's cor^ner in October pork Judges Tuley and^Collins, before whom the matter was taken^have it under advisement
Laterin 'he day the judges announced^their decision, declining to lasue the in^^junction prayed for.

Syracuse, Oet. 1^ The convention^hall waa crowded when at noon Edward^Murphy, as chairman of the state commit^tee, called the convention to order and an^bounced the action of tbe state committee^in nominating Edward A. Jones fur tern^porary chairman. The committee's ac^tion was unanimously adopted and a com^mittee was appointed to escort Jones to^the chair.
Oataking tne chair be spoke at consid^^erable length. He referred to the last na^tional campaign and declared the party^had not lost faith in either its principles or^its leaders. He eulogized President Cleve^land, and on the subject of pensions for^veterans said: ^When these interests were^in our bands not only all tbe rights but tbe^honor of veterans was protected. Today^be who risked his life leading a forlorn^hope, and waa carried from fie battle^field after tbe conflict was ended, maimed^for life, finds himself and the estimation of^his claims on the gratitude of his conntrj^rated no higher than a bounty jumper and^a deserter, and now he confesses with^shame that be helped by bis vote to place^in power an administration that not only^brands him, and every comrade who holds^an honorable discharge with tbe basest^stigma of disgrace. In the political cam^^paign of lhHH tbe soldier was promised pen^^sions galore, lnfiuenctd by tbeir preju^^dices, tempted by their greed, they rallied^to the republican standard by regiments.^When tbe administration assumed power^their confidence was renewed; tbey felt^encouraged by tbe appointment of one from^tbeir own ranks as commissioner of pen-^sons, who, upon assuming office, assured^Lis old comrades that tbe liberal promises^h. bad made by authority on the stump^should be faithfully kept He took his po^^sition with the honest intention of carrying^out what he had been taught in the cam^paign to be the policy of the republican^administration if elected; but he soon found^out it was intended as th-ir policy if not^elected. He was a faithful soldier, who^thought he was obeying tbe orders of bis^superior officers when he opened the flood^gates of tbe treasury.
Hisallusion to Cleveland evoked hearty^cheering, which was continued for over^ten minutes. At that point in his speech^where he referred to Gov Hill and used^the phrase, ' 1 am a democratic,^ there was^also wild cheering. The speech was cor^^dially received After appointing commit^tees the convention took a recess.

Baltimore.Oct 1.^The first authentic^information about tbe riots on Nevaasa^island were received last night in a letter^from Dr. Smith, acting superintendent of^the Nevassa phosphate company, who with^C. W. Roby, the mine bosr, and two offi^^cials are the only surviving officers of the
bloodyaffray. They had taken refuge on^the Britisb man-of-war Forward, which^came to tbeir assistance. Dr. Smitb writes^that on tbe morning of Sept. 14th the^negroes arose in insurrection and killed^four officers^Thomas N. Foster, Joseph^Fabs, James Mahone aud William 1. Shea^Roby was first assaulted in the diggings^and left for dead. At noon the men con^^gregated in front of the superintendent's^house and refused to work. When^Jones attempted to arrest one^of tbe ringleaders. he was^knocked down, and in a few minutes a^howling mob surrounded him. He man^^aged to get to the house, where tbe other^i fhVers had sought shelter, though volleys^ot rocks and other missiles were hurled at^bim. He took refuire in an upper story of^tbe superintendent's house and opened fire^on the mob. The battle lasted for three^hours, with an occasional negro wounded,^when the Inmates were startled by tbe ex^plosion of a dynamite bomb on tbe lower^porch. This was soon followed by an^^other, until there was a continuous roar of^dynamise, when the officers atterop'Md to^seek another shelter. Foster was butcn-^ered with knives and Jos. Fales chopped^to pieces with an axe. Win. Shea and^James Mason were also murdered. All^the murdered men are Balttmoreans. The^negroes sti I have possession of the island.

HerRoutine of Life While^Sentence.
PaliMall Gazette: Mrs, Maybrlck-al^most forgotten now, is doing ber nine^months of solitary confinement and dally^does an alloted task of needlework. Those^who follow tne wretched woman's career,^as it may be studied from time to time by^the prison bulletins, will learn with inter^^est that there U considerable thought as to^dress in prison, and as befits a lady's estab^lishment. Even in prisoD, according to Mr,^R W Robinson, a variety of toilets is cus^tomary. There is the probation class, in^which women for the first nine months^wear a lilac cotton skirt In summer, with a^blouse bodice, a square of serge for the^shoulders, a check blue and white apron^small white linen cap with goffered border'^and a plain, untnoinied coarse white straw^bonnet of what is termed the ' cottage^shape.' and a very hideous shape, to our^mas.- j nne mind, it appears to be. On Sun^day white aprons and neckerchiefs are^worn. In winter the lilac dress is re-^replaced by thick blue serge, with a neck^^erchief of tbe same material and a thick
fawncolored circular cape is also allowed voto ln the ci'y of Helen
forthe shoulders.| - - k
lntbe secona nine montns the prisoner^is a woman of the third class, aDd wears in^summer a plain blue cotton skirt with^stripes and a tquare of brown serge for the^shoulders. The bonnet and linen cap re^main the same in style, or distinguished, as^may be, for want of style, and white aprons^and neckerchiefs again smarten up the^women on the Sabbath. In winter the^third-class women wear brown serge^dresses and fawn-colored capes, ln the^third nine months a female convict becomes^a woman of tbe second class, and is al^lowed the distinction of wearing a full blue^cotton skirt with whith spots, a blouse^bodice of the hum,,- material and^a square of green serge for the shoulders,^in winter she wears a thick green serge^gown, the other details of dress being trie^same as in the preceding class. In the^ourth period of nine months she becomes^a woman of the first class, with little, if^any, distinction from the second, and this^remsins until she is within nine month., of^the expiration of tbe sentence, when-^happy time for the female convict with^iberty so close at hand again^she is^dubbed a woman ot the special class. The^two children of Mrs Ma) brick have by the^consent of their decessed father's brothers^and of the Baroness von Roque, t ieir^grandmo'her, been adopted by a lady and^gentleman in London, who are in g^K^d cir^umstances and who will see to their main^tenance and education. The children (boy^nd girl) will assume the names of their^^ster parents, and thus it is hoped in^u'ure life escape the stain attaching to the^aine of their mother.
Belowwil be found returns from differ^ent sections ln Montana, received up to 4^No count) is sufficiently comolete^to estimate what the result ia The scatter^ing return shows unmistakably that the^democratic gains in Lewis and Clarke,^Deer Lodge, Silver Bow, Dawson, Galla^^tin and Meagher baye nearly wiped^out Carter s majority of 5.IH2 laat year^Further returns may entirely overcome Ms^small lead over Maginn i, which the fig^^ures now Indicate. Power runs behind^Carter in nearly every part of the territory,^except in Cboteau county, and it looks as^though Toole would beat him a few hun^^dred votes. As a rule democratic legiala^live nominees are running ahead of their^ticket, and a democratic majority on Joint^l allot seems assured.
Itwill take the official count to deter^mine tbe election of several members, ln^Lewis and Clarke, as well as in other^counties, the counting of the ballots was^not completed last nigbt. Even tbe official
tained.but enough Is known to show that^the democrats bsve nearly, if not quite,^swept the county, both on the state and^legislative ticketa. They have alto elected^apart of their county ticket it will be^perhaps another day before the counting^of the votes is concluded in all parts of the^territory.
Thelatest figures.which are still very ln-^complete.indicate that both Toole and Ma^ginnis have carried Lewis and Clarke^county, the f inner by 250 to S0^ and the^latter by 100 to 200 If these figures hold^good and the other counties, not yet heard^from, continue present galas both Toole^and Maginnis will be elected.

LouisvilleEditor Offers a Hatiafactory^Eiplnnation as to Their Numbers.
LouisvillePost: It Is somewhat hard^for an outside barbarian to understand why^'colonels^ are so plentiful in Kentucky.
Intbe first place, Kentucky furnished a^great many soldiers, botb to the northern
andthe southern ^ mies, during the war,^and naturally some of tbe soldiers are sure^enough colonels by rank and service.^Others, who were minor officers or perbsps
ighprivates, are now dubbed colonels by^way of courtesy. A few colonels hold over^from the Mexican war, and 'here are col^^onels of militia. Tits' governor of Ken -^tucky has the p ivilege of appointing per^^sons on his stsff with th- rank of colonel.^Some executives have been more lavish
hanothers in the distribution of these
ildedhonors. That kindly old gentleman.^Gov. Luke Blackburn, M. D.. was fond of^creating colonels. During h'sterru be made
omesixty colonels in the Hi) of Louisville^alone, if I remember the hgur-s correctly
Thereare various ress ns which enti'lea^min to his gubernatorial compliment Col.^Wi'.l Hays na lonel because he is such a^glne Col. AH^ert Dieizman
wasfciven his ;.i .e by ^; ^v. Knott because^he waa tbe greatest business manager on^earth.
reletf firm believers similar to what^hey had in this city. Dr. A. Ber.tle)^Wortbington went out t f town Several^weeks ago, and his door bell was pulled^day after day hv determined looking men,^who were aaid to be angry creditors of tbe^man with a doxen alia^e^ and a different^wife for each one Neighbors of tbe^couple, who kept a curious eye on what^was going on in the tront parlor where^Mra Plunkett wrote her faith cure ed.tor-^ials for her monthly newspaper, the inde^^pendent say that Worthinglon came back^to town one day last week. He was not^tbe same chipper and handsome Wortb^^ington of old, however, because he wore a^disguise. Tbey assert that the much mar^^ried man had on a long black^beard that reached halt way down^his breast a wig of ebony curls and a^But there are other reasons. Mir,^^prominent citizens are honored with this^complimentary title simply as a recogin-^lf a man has been a captain in the war,^never call bim captain; call him colonel.^He is entitled to this promotion twenty-four^. ears after the war has closed. Tbe only^men pro nl to be cal!edcap:ain are the com^manders of steamboats, the captains ^ f fire^companies, tbe conductors ^ f railroad trains^and the officers in a salvation army. Tbe^title of Major is comparatively rare, and,^theref re, is really more of a distinction^than col-nel. Only prominent people who^have seen actual service wear the title; for^instance, M j Ed Hughes and Maj J.^Washington \Vann. But still if yoa call a^major a colonel he is not likely to get mad^a' you. I.y the observance of these few^rales I have jotted down the stranger can^get along in Kentucky without committing^any serious breach of etiquette.

AHangman Tried for His Life.^Pall Mall Gazette: Berlin has just had a^moat extraordinary sensational trial^curi^ous, indeed almost without parallel, among^the records of crime. Tbe hangman bas^been accused of assassination and tried for^his life. Of course It was a question of^jealousy. The Berlin ^ x- cutioner does not^lead a very moral life.

Opinionsof experienced politicians is^that Cascade county nas gone democratic^by from 100 to 200 majority. Last year It^gave Carter twenty-six msjority. It is be^^lieved that the whole county and legisla^tive ticket are elected. In this town 737^votes were pulled; this was 1.1) less than^the registration. The drift was entire ^^democratic. It is expected that the aver^^age democratic majority in town Is^seventy five. There are strong indications^that William Cockrill bas beaten both the^independent and republican candidates for^clerk of the district court J. B. Leslie has^carried the county for district judge and is^undoubtedly elected. Tbe people are^wild with enthusiasm at the good news^from all quarters.
Returnsfrom the smelter prectrct give^the following republican majorities: Car^^ter, V; Armington, 7; Benton, 4. The dem^^ocratic majorities are: Stanton, 7; W. J^Clark, 7; lay lor, 14; Cockrill. IK; Sweeney,^10: Rmgwald, 8. The smelter gave last^year about 50 majority fur tbe republican^candidate.
