doing some efficacious work, It has
been rustling for this city ils good shape,
It has heretofore been mentioned that
valuable information concerning the re
sources and advantages of Great Falls
and the surrounding country has been
disseminated broadcast throughout the
Union; but it is worthy of iteration, even
more so, when it is known that from Ohio
the inquiries are coming in thick and
fast. In many instances the tenor of the
letters show a determination to come and
look over this country, and when they
rome, that settles it-they are Montana
converts, spelled with a big C. They see
that this vast available water power is
well calculated to run innumerable mills,
that here is an arablecountry. not a des

grow up with the countrv.

C. C. Ray unfortunately mentioned in
the club the other evening that he had
no use for a man whose neck was so big

ing made for an extensive transfer of
property in the Black Eagle Falls addi
tion. Mr. Barnes was quite successful
while in the East. He will not return to

The letter of Capt. Kelly speaks for
itself. The mean, cowardly lie which
was sent to the Helena Independent of
Sunday is completely squelched. Two
of Mr. Rolfe's grandparents were born in
Ireland, and nobody but a slanderer
would have attributed that remark to
him. Every republican who accompa
nied Mr. Rolfe oni his trip about thecoun
ty stys that he uniformnly Spoke kindly of
his oippouent anid those ,on the opposite

NI. IMercer, of Newcomnersville, Ohio,

Falls to look the place over. They are
all desirous of taking up government
anud, and Mir. Mercer states that there
are maniy people with whom he is ac
quainted who are desirous of getting I
governlmllnt land l thile vicinity of Great
Falls. 'IThe gentlemeni were escorted
about the city yesterday by Mr. Ml(Gin
lls, of the Manitoba, and they are going I
over to s5t the coal nmliles to-day. Some
of them contemplate lita1rtig itl the coal r
bushiness. They are favorally impressed
with the appearatnce of the city and cn
vironnment, and they tire almost as eln
thusiastic its Mr.MeiGinnis, when lie said:
'.I will stake iily life on it that this townt.
will have seventy-five thousand inhalh-i
itants in ten years fromn now, Great
Falls is ino slotutci, and it does not r'o
quire a wise prognosticator to see it. i1
Great Falls is just what it lets ont to be-
a growing metropolis, worthy the emula
tion of all other cities in Montana, the I
garden spot of the universe'!"
r4 Lie Refuted.
Mu. EDITOn :-- Thi ascount published
in Sunday's Helena Independent concern
inug Mr. Rolfe and myself is untrue. He
never said the words attributed to hinm.
I never struck him or made use of the
expression spoken of. Mr., Ilolfe hisd al
ways been a friend to me and to all Irish
men. I never said a word in disrespect
towards him, and no mans has more re
spect for tiu than av I hltv. I challenge
any man to say that I ever made use of
those words. It is an unqualified lie.
I have known Mr. Rolfe ten years and he
has always had nimy ralespet.

ie The Democratle Pow-Wow.
After a wretched attempt at a torch
light procession last night, in which half
t- the torches were without lights and some
of the imported hoodlum crowd carried
half a dozen apiece, and all the trans
parencies were in outer darkness, with
wailing and gnashing of teeth against the
mismanagement, about half past 8 o'clock
a mixed mass got into the hall to see the
W beardance. It was noticeable that more
than half the torches lay untouched upon
the side-walk, and the whooper up tried
e in vain to get boys to carry them. The
e crowds lining the streets simply laughed
B. to scorn the futile efforts to manufac
mr ture democratic furore.
V- In the hall, the most prominent orna
ment was the stars and stripes badly ar
k ranged in imitation of the St. George's
is cross. The absence of the Egyptian
I- obelisk bandana was painfully apparent.
t, Gov. Leslie, Sam Word, Ira Myers, Paris
r. Gibson, Mr. Collins, and one or two
others occupied the stand.
Mr. Collins appointed Ira Myers to the
chair, who introduced Gov. Lestle, who
n said he was sorry, very sorry to say that
d he had not come there to talk, but to
g hear the great and immortal Sam Word;
*t but he was chuck full of democracy; upon
e which the tattoed Sam strode forward,
his chiefest treasure being his No. 14
- shoes and the gaudy charm, like a white
man's scalp in the belt of a Sioux Indian,
dangling from his watchchain. Sam had
scarcely opened his brawny mouth when
the hired hoodlums raised their mechan
ical howl, at which Sam said his grati
tude was boundless, and spread himself
- from one side of the hall to the other;
and again went up that uneaithly howl,
at which the few ladies present were
about to swoon, when Sam expostulated,
saying, "good friends, sweet friends," "O
tell it not in Great Falls,nor let the sound
thereof reach Helena, how this mighty
Samson, with the jawbone of an ass, had
made such havoc among you," and theyl
imnmediately began to show signs of re
lie then endeavored to say that lie had
not colme here to lampoon Mr. Carter,
who was pushed forward by Tom Power,
Mr. liershtield and others. lie had now

newspaipers on his shoulders. Slanders
