GeorgeWilliam ^'urtis in not happy^^rer the eivil nerviee methods of the^Harrison Hdiniiiistnition but then it^would take a great deal of MttttaU^^weetness and light to make Mr. t'ur-^tia happy. The fact that fifteen thinis-^and fourth-claHH poittmRstera have^hwn removed is a little tough on Mr.^Curtis, we must confess. Still, Mr. t'ur-^tis hopes on. and we suppose he will^hope on forever in spite of the growing^sentiment which he says lie notices^among republicans to drift from the^moorings of reform and in face of^^^resident Harrison's direct violation of^all the pledge* he gave just before he^was elected. Kvidently Mr. Curtis^will have to take it out in hoping.

THESLOW COUNT^If the count of votes for Tuesday's |^^lection comes in at snail's pace, the j^public ought to bear in mind the fact^that the system is something quite new^to our people, and due allowance^should be made for the length of the^ballot with its seventy-odd names.^Again, the fact that the vote promised^to be extremely close doubtless led the^clerks and judges to Ite very cautious^in their work, as a few slight errors in^little precincts might have great signifi^^cance in deciding questions of serious^weight. With the election five days to^the rear of us, the public is^naturally impatient to know the fate^of all the candidates. It is far I tetter,^iiowever, that the count Ite tardy than^that errors creep in through^undue haste. In all probability,^the result on the entire ticket will not^be known until the oflicial count is^made.
Itwill not soon happen, however, that^news from all the precincts will Ite so^long withheld. It will be a long time^before the list of candidates at a single^^lection can be made so formidable in^point of numbers, and in many in^^stances, clerks who have already ^got^their hand in^ will again be called into^service and the grounds for inexcus^^able delay will not be present.
Toall appearance the correct election^returns for Montana reached far-away^Omaha papers before they got into^some newspaper oflices right here in^the territory, and thus we read in the^Omaha tie* this timely counsel: ^West^Virginia offers the usual fall assort^^ment of promises of victory. 1'endiiig^confirmation let us lie content with^Washington and the two Dakota*.

SilverHow elects one menilter of the^legislature and one comity officer on^the republican ticket. 1'ndoubtedly^Hutte is the most gloriously democratic^milling camp on earth.
THECRAZE IN PIERRE^The fact that Pierre is to lie the capi^^tal of South Dakota has set the town^wild in more ways than one. Dis^^patches received the day after election^gave graphic accounts of the jubilant^manner in which the town was cele^^brating its victory. Late telegrams say^that the Oklahoma movement of last^spring promises to be outrivaled in the^real estate boom that has attacked the^new capital. It is reported that prop^^erty valued at ^t5^X),iJU^^ changed bauds^ou Friday and that building lots worth^one hundred dollars advanced within^forty-eight hours to ten times that^price.
KvidentlyPierre is about to suffer^all the ills that afflict towns where the^worst forms of real estate speculat ion^get a grip. Not very long hence, there^will be the inevitable ^last man^ ami^the indications are that he will lie^numerous in Pierre, who will lie left^high and dry with town lots not worth^one-fifth of what was paid for them.^Of course, the public is not expected to^have any sympathy for this individual,^who squanders his substance on dirt at^fancy prices, bur the evil results always^abide on the town itself, spoiling its^credit, checking its growth and robbing^it of that thrifty air which every really^prosperous*tow n is entitled to wear.
Perhapsthe sorriest looking lot of^towns in the world are those which the^tiaveler passes on his journey westward^across Dakota and along the^line of the Northern Pacific road.^If Pierre's people know nothing regard^ing these towns, they certainly must^remember the ex|terience of the city of^Bismarck, after the capital was fixed^there, yet they are running an exact^parallel with what hap|iened in His^marck. except that Pierre is plunging^more wildly headlong, if half the dis^^patches say is true.
Afterall, there are normal lines along^which the value of real estate moves^in every city in the land. Taking it iti^the rough, it may be said that the pos^^session of a state capital has not been^of account in any financial sense to ^Hi^per emit, of the American cities that
havebeen made the seat of govern^^ment. lMerre may prove to be a con^^spicuous exception, yet that is more^than doubtful. At any rate the town^is evidently in the hands of the land^sharks, and if the people who intend to^stay there are in the erase it is certain^that, if out of Dakota's experience they^have learned nothing and forgotten^nothing, they will at least have a good^deal to rememlier by and by. When^Anaconda is made the capital of Mon^^tana, some three years hence, we may^lie sure that no such high flying real^estate nonsense will accompany the^event.
Anacondais in for another election^which will lie held on Thursday of this^week. This time it is a question of^bonding for a sewer. As a S|tecial at^^traction intended for the day, the man^^agement hopes to announce the pres^^ence of 1'nited States Marshal IS.Wash^^ington Irvin. Second.. Ksq., with staff,^in full regalia, to run another luminous^and deadly parallel sewer, to keep our^coerced townsmen from falling into the ^^trench and to show the people, as the I^day advances in its hilarious round, j^how a sewer looks from the time it M^started until it is full.
TheIlelena Journal is hard at work^trying to find out why its party lost^Lewis and Clark county. It wants^scores of republicans in Helena put on^the toasting irons right off. That is^right: go for 'em and investigate every^last citizen who didn't vote your way.^Turn the rascals out of the county.^Put them at hard labor for fifteen min^^utes over iti the Silver How tunnel dis^^trict! That ought to lie a good enough^Silieria for any republican.
Ifhalf the Helena Journal says is^true atid that's a liberal allowance^more than six hundred Lewis and^Clark republicans actually sold out on^election day. The Staniiahi^ is^tempted to print a whole column of^reacting published by the Journal.^giving interviews with Helena republi^^cans who roundly denounce their own^party associates and call them all sorts^of hard names. One republican says^it was hoi Nile, another says ^the repub^^licans tried to run a campaign without^money ( V) and failed.^ Another ob^^serves that the democrats ^engaged^live hundred republicans to work on^election day^ (Probably these are the^fellows who were coerced by the^wicked managers of mines to stay^underground all day). Still another^republican remarks ^that one thousand^republicans were hired to go out of^town.
Hearalso what our republican Chair^^man Seligtnau saith: ^I was rather too^busy with the state campaign to keep^cases on affairs in the city.^ Served^you right. If you had wagged your^long tongue less in false testimony^about decent men this side the range^and attended to your own rotten bor^^ough with its vote which you confess^to be grossly corrupt, you might have^saved something out of the universal^wreck and have come nearer to sharing^the triumph with the democrats.
TheHelena Journal is going to re^^form its own party. That's right,^nervous neighbor. It's too big a job^and you'll fail at it; but you might as^well fool with it as with anything else,^and legislative politics won't trouble^you this year. The farce in the whole^business is that on one page the Jour^^nal strongly claims a victory, while on^another it quotes the reasons given by^republicans to show why the battle^was lost.
Theassessment rolls are long de^^layed. They should have lieen in the^hatidsof the county commissioners long^ago. in order that ample time Unal^^lowed for any readjustments that com^^mend themselves to the meiulters of the^board. In view of the delay, the com^^missioners will lie obliged to make^short work with the rolls, and they will^very soon lie barred from raisitig the^assessment on any taxpayer in the^county. The taxes must all tie paid in^before Decemlier 1. otherwise the per^^centage is added: so that it is going to^be a snug fit all around. There may lie^good reason for the delay, but it has^not Im'cii given. The commissioners^meet again on the Pith of this month.
ASTO SILVER^The world of trade is Itegiiiuing to^realize that it is wrong to keep putting^up the price of gold by the depression^of prices for all other commodities,^and the evil entailed by the single-^standard system are commanding at^^tention more and more.
Ithas already been shown that the^friends of a double standard have next^to nothing to expect from any results^of international consultation. The^monetary conference held in Paris,^with its non-committal conclusions,^prove as much. Discussion that may re^^sult in more direct good will probably^come out of the congress of bankers^held in Kansas City, where silver had a^good representation.
WhenMontana comes to the election^of two democratic senators a few weeks^hence, great care should lie taken to^impress on the eastern public the fact^that men are sent by this state to the^federal senate who have very decided^convictions on the silver question. Of^course, in the mind of our own people^there will lie no doubt as to the^opinions held regarding silver by any^man delegated to represent Montana in^Washington. At the same time, formal^action ought to lie taken regarding leg^islation about silver at the time our^senators are chosen, not necessarily for^publication, as the newspajiers say.^hen-at Inline, but as a guaranty to pss^^pie east of the Missouri river that this
isto be made a strong issue in Mon^^tana and that our senators are pledged^to work faithfully toward the end we^all have in view.

APSALM OF THANKSGIVING.
Oh,cttine, let us arise and whoop; for^tic hold, our enemies have tumbled, and^^re even at the bottom of ^ bole that is^exceeding tleep.

Buttic hold we, even we, are tilt* boss^stickers ami we will not lie out-stM-kcd.^Wherefore, when they came forth to^sock it tons, we arose ami Hocked it unto^them with a mighty stick.
Andit came to pass that in all the re^^gion around utiout was there never Is fore^a suck which seemed to sock with the^same stick with which our stick did stM'k.
Andthey tied from Is fore us even into^the mountains afar tiff. Ami they arose^and soaked their heads ami were sad.
