The e'xperi ence of Philadellehia throeegh half a ceni. tury of municiilal gae-makieeg is a torch oce tie hill-top forever warniing other cities away fromr that alluricg shoal into which even mer of genius have sometimes been led." To refer to the sad ate! ex pensive experience of i'hiladeljilia is ten able citation and our that is ntot likely to be lost on the public, THE ROADS AND TIlE MAIL Although congress has adjourned Rep fesentathie llrovnilow is still pushinig his good-rods project, ased on his hill, which would provide for national, state and municipal aid in road-making and maintenance. Mr. Irownlow holds that this is the only solution of the "road problem" and lie holds further that with out it the whole system of rural free de livery of mail must fall to the ground. In a communication to the Inter 'Mountain be avers that so far the system has been extended only to communities blessed with good roads. Among the Imany communi ties demanding the introduction of the system, he says the postlttice department has been able to select those which have able natural conditions or superior wealth. good roads, either as a result of favor The less favored communities, which have been passed by, have consoled themselves with the thought their turn would come soon. But when these disap pointed communities-and their num ber is increasing very rapidly-find out that they are permanently barred fromt enjoying the benefits of free delivery on account of the condition of their roads, a cry of Indignant opposition will be raised; and it will grow into an angry roar, above whlch it is doubtful if the friends of free delivery can be heard. When this etrm, breaks, according to Brownlow, the .ie.slarIcs of the sy.stel will be found to be a small minority and the disappoint ed a large majority of the rural popula tion. Suppose the ninority 'tan l on its dignity and says; "What are you goini to d, about it " \'hat's to prevent the disappointed anujority from wiping out the whole system and thus restoring "equality before tlh law ?' Or suppose the minority says: "Why don't you iln prove your roads and thus secure the blessings of free mail delivery?" The majority can answer: "In improving our roads we have to overcome greater ol. stacks and our means are less. Why not help us improve our roads through gen eral taxation?" Such a demand as this is almost certain to result from the agita tion for rural free delivery of the mails. And what is there unreasonable or unjust about such a demand? The general im provement of the roads of the country is a work too stupendous to be left entirely to the small municipalities. Besides, is it not more deserving of national aid than the building of the railroads and canals and the improvement of rivers and haalf hors? It can be said for Mr. Brownlow that In annexing the rural free delivery to his good-roads project he has at least hit upon something that will appeal with con siderable force to that portion of the pub lie-and it is not a small portion--that has its habitation in the "bad roads" dis trict. ANOTHER BUTTE A Helena dispatch to the Minneapolis Tribune fashes the important intelligence upon the world that "a second Itutte" is abtlout to be developed in Missoula county. The original discovery of fabulous cop per-gold mines was made last fall, but the mnatter was kepit secret until recently, doubtless out of regard for the copper market. Now that the nlarket seems strong enough to bear a shock, the great tlines are to be uncovered. It is hoped by tile discoverers that the market will take care of itself, but if it doesn't it will have to suffer. The "secood Ilutte," it seems, can no longer be hidden under a bushel. 'That local pride which burns with a fierce, white heat in the breast of every citizen of flutte may kindle the hope that there may be nothing in this. This is "the great cst mining camp on earth" and it is only na:itural that we of Butte should wish the honr amnd the glory to remain with us, for if .1 is-.ula county already has a "see il ut'uic" in sight who can say that a lit tile lie-ing will not unearth something that i illl 1 tb w ..u ot of the first plac c?

This is all true, and the newspapers of the tlate can devote themtselves to no bet ter purpose than by making this subject a prminenllt one in their discussion of state affairs.

AMUSEMENTS Mrs. Brune in "Unorda" A play, mystifying from the very nature of the plot and denouement, but at the same time highly interesting, is "Unorna," as presented at the Broadway last even ilg by Mrs. BIrune. The engagement will close tonight. The occult powers of a girl of more than ordinary beauty and her misuse of them, is the theme. Upon this is built a powerful play, affording great scope to the star, who demonstrates her ability as an emotional actress. "Unorna" is not for children, neither is it of a commenda ble class of literature. With the remasit der of Crawford's works, it may be sail to be typical of a lamentable class of writing now popular. P-. There is nothing to inspire in the story, tthing to glorify in the play. Yet, con sidicred from a purely histrionic stand p,,int, ethics aside, it is powerful as a p'lay aind should draw well.

Noth ing along this particular line has ever been published, the nearest approach to it be ing Wallace Irwin's "Rubiayat," which made such a hit last year.
