Mr. E. R. Clingan, at the club
eeting, gave some interesting rem
niscences of the organization of the
epublican party In Choteau county
1 1880. Previous to that time, only
ven Republican votes had been cast in
at county, and it required some courage
o declare one's self a Republican. But
he party was organized, Messrs. Clingan,
)owning, Rolfe, Werrick and Glass were
unong the first delegates to the county
onvention. One or two Republicans
vere elected the first year and next elec
ion, when the county shall have became
ully settled with Republicans from the
orthern states, it will join the other
Republican counties of Montana.
WE WERE surprised that Mr. W. A
Clark made no apology for his malignant.
ttack upon one of the bravest soldiers
n the ninth Massachusetts regiment,
atrick Ford. It would have been the
olden opportunity for him to have re
racted his cold-blooded accusation and
hown himself an honorable man. This
tack on Patrick Ford, the great Irish
merican patriot, will not be the means
f winning Mr. Clark any votes in this
rritory, and the quicker he follows the
ample of his organ, the Helena Inde
ndent, and retreats as it did in the in
ance of its slander against the banking
ouse of L. H. Hershfleld, the better it
ill be for Mr. Clark's interests.
Hon. J. A. Harris.
The nomination of J. A. Harris for
oint councilman for Cascade and Cho
an counties is one that will be favora
ly regarded by every one. Mr. Harris
as long been a resident of Chestnut val
-y. He has served his constituents as
ommissioner well and faithfully.
gainst his integrity not a word can be
id. In education and intelligence he is
'ell qualified for a legislator. He will
present all sections and do good work
the next legislature.
THE most silly doggerel it has been
or opportunity to witness, was that dis
dibuted in the wool warehouse the other
ight, entitled "In the White House, we
re fixed." The metrical feature of the
upposed song would have dazed even the
ýeet singer of Michigan. It didn't
ven have the merit of rhyme, much less
at of sense. The spelling, we should
dge to be that of the Tribune editor,
hography peculiar to himself.
The Democrats are making desperate
orts to get up a crowd tonight. 1ostal
rds have been sent to every Dlqmocrat
the county with a request to be pres
nt in the parade, and to pay $1.10O for a
at. Clark's money will he spent free
,and we understand men are eling
id $2.50 to carry torches.
NOTWITHSTANDnN o the little difterence
opinion politically, the LEADER was
lad to see so many distinguished
emocrats from our neighboring city of
elena at Great Falls, and we hope to see
A good steady boy wanted at this of
L. G. PHELPr, F. P. Atkinson,
Martin Maginnis, Paris Gibson, C. M.
Webster, Col. Johnson, W. A. Clarke, Jno.
Shober and Gen. Green, visited the Great
Falls smelter on Sunday afternoon.
Great Falls is glad to have these gentle
men examine its resources and natural
advantages. The Helena gentlemen all
expressed their wonder and surprise at
growth of Great Falls, and were evident
ly much pleased with their reception.
Mr. A. J. Campbell, of the Benton
River Press, dropped in upon us yester
day to see our new type and presses. He
is out on a canvassing tour. He claims
some remote relationship to our great
Campbell power-press, and wishes it was
a little more immediate. He should
camp higher up the river and look out
for the engine when the bell rings.
PART or the distinguished Democrats
will leave on the Helena train Monday
morning for Cascade, where they make
speeches at one o'clock in the afternoon.
They will then return to Great Falls and
go on to Fort Benton, where another
meeting will take place Monday night.
The Harvest Excursions.
The last of the cheap harvest excur
sions over the St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Manitoba railway leaves St. Paul on the
28d inst. Such opportunities for viewing
the attractions of Northern Montana have
never before been offered. We hope Mr.
Whitney, the courteous general passen
ger and ticket agent, will renew the har
vest excursions the coming season. They
will thus assume a leading feature in the
management, and eventually become as
remunerative to the road as they are grat
ifying to the tourists and home-seekers.
The chairman of the Dakota territorial
Democratic. committee passed through
Montana last week. He stated to one of
the Republicans of Great Falls that he
had abundant opportunities to know the
feeling in Virginia in regard to the elec
tion, and admitted that the Old Dominion
and also West Virginia would probably
go Republican, but he believed the Demn
ocrats had a fighting chance in New
York. He was very much surprised to
see so many Republicans in Montana. In
a carload of 16 passengers every person
excepting himself was a Republican.
WE REGRET very much that the con
templated visit of the Helena people to
Rainbow falls was postponed indefinitely
on account of the delayed train. A
great many ladies were in the party, who
were anxious to see the Rainbow falls.
All, however, promise to come again,
when we trust politics will not interfere
NoTwITHnsTANDIxo the fact that there
has been some complaint regarding the
mail service in Montana, the efficiency of
the employes in the postoftice here, is
highly commendable. They are at all
times courteous and assiduous In their
endeavors to please the public, and cred
itably discharge their duties.
A "coon" dive was "pulled" last even
ing, and the prostitutes and Samuel Dean
of Sand Coulee were arrested. It is re
ported that they were dancing while nude.
They were brought before Justice Race
this afternoon at 2 o'clock. Heretofore
Mr. Dean's character has always been
If Mr. W. A. Clark wishes a clean cam
paign, why does he allow the Helena In
dependent to sling mud against the Re
publican candidate for delegate? If Mr.
Clark does not wish a personal campaign,
it will be proper for him to put a quietus
on the Independent.
Mr. Will Hanks,on his trip east, bought
the outfit for the LEADEt Publishing Co.,
and was paid for his work. Mr. Hanks
has no interest whatever in the LEADEt.
He does not own a cent's worth of stock,
and has no control over the paper. Now
start another story.
Leader Job Office.
Our friends will perceive by our an
nouncement in this issue that we are
prepared to execute every kind of print
ing in the very latest and best styles
known to the "art preservative of arts."
So roll in your work.
The Helena Record
Is the handsomest looking newspaper
printed in Montana,excepting the LEADER,
of course. Its mechanical make-up is in
the very highest order of the typographic
art. The good citizens of the capital
should be proud of it.
A Great House.
The superb new dress in which the
LEADER comes to its readers today is
from the printers' warehouse of Marder,
Luse & Co., Chicago. They are the best
type-founders and dealers in printing ma
terial in the West.
HARIns is one of the most exten
sive clothing dealers in Montana. The
clothing house in Helena is an immense
concern, as well as the one in Great Falls.
Mail orders will receive prompt atten
tion and be filled at extremely low prices.
ATTENTION is called to Mr. Wetzel's
advertisement. Mr. Wetzel is an old
resident of Great Falls and this section
of the country.
WE IDItl)E OUIISELVES that the GiREAT

favorably with any paper printed in
Montana. If we are mistaken in this,
let us know.

CAPTURING A SWORDFISH.
A Vicious romster, aetng Wounded
Pierees a Bloek Island Bfat.
A man stands on a little platform in
front of the bow armed with a harpoon
having a rply and deeply barbed
point, so that in piercing the flab, it it
goes in ftar enough, it cannot be easily
gout, let the fish be as uglyas he may.
aIron is so arranged, in connection
with a pole and cord, that the cord can
be detached from the harpoon, the pole
pulled back, and the harpoon left firmly
nxed in the now maddened fish-the
line, a very strong rope, 800 teet long,
being fast to the Iron and the other end
secure on the vessel. This end Is imme
diately fastened securely to an
barrel, which is then thrown overboard,
and it marks the course and position of
the enraged fish.
It also enables the vessel to send out a
life boat to haul in, tire out and if po
sll cMpture theuglytellow. Andugly'
heis, if he sayoung fish. Ift heisold
and heavy, he is much quieter-even
with a harpoon in him. It is the
younger, livelier fellows that are so full
of ugly courage-that attack and kill
whales, and attack, indeed, pretty much
everything in the ocean, unles it may
be the sea serpent and the devil fish.
That they will attack a man, even a
bather, who is in water not over his head,
and kill him, too, unless he can make
wonderful time in getting into shallower
water, was proved a few years ago in the
case of a young Catholic priest who was
attacked while bathing on the California
shore, in water just above his hips; he
was fearfully gashed and nearly killed
before he could get ashore. Sometimes,
in its fury at being harpooned, it rushee
at the small boat and thrusts its ugly
sword up through the boat's bottom.
Woe to the man it hits!
Our harpooner fastened to a fish that
was secured, as it happened, with little
trouble, though the harpoon only pene
trated a little way into his big carcass.
He proved to be 10 feet 5 inches long,
and weighed undoubtedly 450 pounds.
Much larger ones have been caught, but
rarely. We also secured two others, not
so large. And it was with the second
one that there was an exciting time. He
proved to be "a young man" among his
fellows, and an ugly young fellow, too.
Having him well harpooned, and the
barrel going dancing at a great rate
against the wind-for it is a curious and
hitherto unrelated fact that a swordfish,
when harpooned, always rushes off to
windward-the life boat put out to secure
him after duly "playing" him. In it
went a Block Islander belonging to the
vessel, and two courageous passengers.
By the time they reached the barrel, they
were a mile from the vessel, and could
be seen, with a glass, pulling in on the
They worked the fish a good while.
When a swordfish, finding himself har
pooned and hopelessly held, really gives
up the fight, he suddenly turns and goes
to leeward. The men at the line under
stand what that movement means. They
were still "playing" this fellow, and ex
hausting him, when, having several
times had him hauled in close to the
boat, so that his blue figure was dis
tinctly visible, and as often permitted
him to go 100 feet off or more, some
thing happened which caused the captain
of the steam yacht a mile off, looking
through his glass, to exclaim: "They're
hr trouble l he has struck the boat!"
and to order an instant start for them.
He was none too soon. The enraged
Bsh, withdrawing some sixty feet, had
made one of those arrowlike rushes upon
the boat, which can be equaled in its
velocity by no other fish in the sea. The
sword pierced the bottom of the boat a
little one side of the keel, near the center
-coming up nearly two feet. Fortu
cately men have learned ere now not to
sitdownin a boat engaged in hauling in
a swordfish. By standing (as well as
they can) their feet present a smaller
surface, and hence a diminished chance
of being hit. Last year one man's boot
heel was partly hit, knocking him head
In the present instance one of the men
had a narrow escape of hardly ten inches.
But the men were saved. Indeed, the
boat, being a shell lifeboat, would hardly
have sunk, although it was already half
full of water and the men hard at work
baling when the steam yacht reached
them. The vicious fish was repeatedly
lanced through the head and neck till he
got comparatively quiet, when, in haul
Ing him up the side, with the harpoon
purchase at the shoulder and the long
grappling hook at the tail, a slipknot was
successfully got over his wide forked tail
-and then-we had him. But for this
last grip he would have turned the boat
over. But the way he lashed the sea
with that tall was a caution.-Hartford
Another Cure for Inomaia.
"So many cures for have been advo
sated for sleeplessness that I am
tempted," writes a correspondent, "to
propound my own recipe, which, if it
may appear somewhat impracticable and
far fetched, has at least the advantage of
simplicity. It is merely this: When you
have tumbled and tossed about one bed
until your pillow seems to be on fire and
your sheets red hot, turn into another-I
mean another bed. You will find the
sheets and the pillow refreshingly cool,
and it is probable at all events that you
will go to sleep. The recipe is not in
fallible, and it is of course necessary to
have anotfier bed to turn into, which is
not always possible. But when practica
ble it is worth trying; and if it fails one
can always fall back on the undoubted
fact that there is no universal cure for
sleeplessness. What is one man's meat
is another man's poison."-Pall Mall
Bitlng the-Finger Nails.
The wife of a well known iron operator
in Pennsylvania is beautiful, witty and
accomplished, but she bites her finger
nails. She says she cannot help it. She
acquired the habit in childhood, and has
tried every means to break it up, but
without success. At times she has sue
ceeded in resisting the inclination until
all her finger nails are triumphantly
long, but invariably they disappear as it
by magic the first time she is disturbed,
annoyed or rendered nervous. She does
not know when she bites them. She
suddenly finds them all gone. Her doc
tors tell her the habit is incurable except
for very strong willed phlegmatic per

'edr Canath Expatiatte on a No. 1
We recently moved Into a house which,
among other prominent features such as
Sfront yard with grass in it, blinds which
hook immovable to the side of the house
when opened, and a large unpaid water
rent left by the former occupant, has also
a butler's pantry.
The pantry seems to be all right and
look s if it might be pleasant and com
fortable; but the trouble is we haven't
any butler to put in it. It stands there
empty, alone, deserted; and probably
there are butleraright here in New York
with their own uniforms and the coat of
arms of the last man they worked for who
are out of a job. If I could find a good
quiet family butler who was willing to
work cheaply and carry his nose high and
look gloomy as he stood by the sideboard
I would hire him and put him in that
pantry. I'm frm on the nose, though.
He must wear it highl And look depressed

When Iput in a coachman he has got
to keep his nose at the proper elevation,
and look sad too. Not any more gloomy
than the footman, however. If your
coachman begins to act as if he can see
the ground anywhere within a quarter of
a mile of him and look cheerful, reprove
him sharply. A good coachman always
keeps his nose well up in the air and ap
The only time a No. 1 coachman ever
aulaxes his features and looks cheerful is
when he is at a funeral. Then he appears
to enjoy himself. A good coachman at a
funeral, while waiting in front of the
house, will get around behind his car
riage with a brother coachman, and
his countenance will light up, and he
will punch the brother in the ribs
and tell a humorous story and actu
ally laugh. Even when the procession
starts he can't usually altogether shake
off his hilarity, and he sometimes smiles.
But take a good imported English coach
man, while driving toor from a wedding,
or taking a turn in the park, and his nose
is highand the gloomis oppressive. This
is why I advise you to observe your coach
man with care and see that he is not drop
ping into the way of looking as if he

him set up the claim that coachmen are
wearing their chins lower this season, for

.No Substitute for Hard Work.
The power to think for one's sell has
too little standing in the schools; and we
do not insist enough upon thle apprecia
tion of the worth of the school work.
Too often we try to wheedle our children
into knowledge. We disguise the name
of work, mask thought, and invent
schemes for making education easy and
pleasant. We give fanciful names to
branches of study, make play with ob
ject lessons, and illustrate all things. To
make education amusing, an easy road
without toil, is to train up a race of men
and women who will shun what is dis
pleasing to them. But there is no sub
stitute for hard work in school if we are
to have a properly trained people; we
must teach the value of work and over
come the indifference of children to ig
The Charge of Insult.
The laugh at the twelfth juryman who
alleged that he had eleven incorrigible
colleagues is a laugh at Columbus anc
Galileo and Jenrer. They all insulted
ance is gener~lly in -the majority. Tbe
charge of insult in such circumstances is
generally the cry of the wounded. It is
a confession that the shaft has struck
home. An arrogant arraigner of other
men and of common courses, a man who
plainly assumes a personal superiority and
merit, is the true Pharisee, who is in
stantly and instinctively repudiated by
honest men.-Harper's Magazine.
London's Lost Dogs.
London has long had its home for lost
and stolen dogs, and as a commercial
affair it pays its way. All dogs brought
there are received and are left for sev
eral days. If not claimed, the mongrels
and aged are killed by an ingenious ar
rangement, which gives them, many at a
time, a painless death by suffocation. A
small charge is made for the keep of
dogs that are claimed, and the unclaimed
ones are sold at good prices.-Cor. Globe.
Not Signs of Death.
It will probably surprise most people to
learn that both cessation of respiration
and of movement of the heart are re

when life ceases. Heart beats have been
known to continue for an hour after the
body was beheaded, while, on the other
hand, they may temporarily cease in

The Variety of Uneouth Names.
The number and variety of such un
suitable names is so great as to defy enu
meration. Not only is history, sacred
and profane, ransacked for such names,
but hybrid combinations are invented
which might be safely worshiped without
breaking the second commandment, for
they are like nothing in the heaven above
or in the earth beneath, or in the waters
under the earth. An English observer
has noticed that American boys and girls
are sad. I should not at all be surprised
if many of them were sad about the un
couth names which have been saddled
on them without either their knowledge
or consent. I heard the other day of a
Chicago gentleman who has four fine
children, and who is determined that
they shall never be sad on this account.
For, instead of imposing any distinctive
name on them, he has simply designated
them. as "One," "Two," "Three" and
"Four." These designations answer all
the purposes of names, and when the
children reach years of discretion they
can assume such names as they desire.
