INTEREST IN IRRIGATION An awakened and enlightened public in terest is the chief requirement of rapid progress in the work of reclaiming the arid lands of the West. There is no longer doubt respecting the practical char acter of the enterprise, and the only ques tions regarding profits to be derived have to do with their magnitude. The congress which opens at Ogden today is evidence of marvelous growth of public interest in the subject. The at tendance is unprecedented in the matter of numbers. The larger part of the terri tory of the United States is represented and the membenllrship of the gathering is composed of men of national repute for ability and influence. The persistent and well-directed efforts of the advocates of irrigation have brought results in public interest which cannot fail to conmmand the attention of congress or to comnpel prompt and effective co-operation of state legis latures and officials ill the Western country. It is confidently expected that nearly fifteen hundred delegates will be present at the Ogden meeting. They include gov ernors, United States senators, distin guished members of the administration department of the national government, and representatives from states, principal cities and commercial bodies. Every phase of the irrigation problem is to be discussed by men who have thoroughly familiarized themselves with the difficul ties as well as the advantages involved in the work of solution. The extension of knowledge of the subject and the in fluence of so well organized effort to expedite the material progress of the undertaking cannot be over-estimated. MR. HARNEY'S DISGRACE Mr. IHeinze and his associates cannot change the record of indisputable facts or escape responsibility for a dissolute judge and a corrupted court by rowdy assaults upon the character of his opponents in liti gation. The attempt to make it appear that Judge Harney is a victim of attacks from enenmies cannot succeed. In the light of subsequent events, the failure of the legis lative assembly to act upon the incontro vertible evidence and vote to impeach the unworthy official is a reflection upon those who led or influenced legislative action rather than a vindication of the accused judge. The opinion of the supreme court in setting aside Judge lHarney's decision in Heinze's interest, taken by itself, would warrant that statement. The severe lan guage of the higher court on that occasion has been more than justified by the conduct of Judge Harney-faithful and fit only in the service of Heinze-since that time. The alleged attempts of enemies to dis grace Judge Harney through impeachment is absurdly ill-timed, because the disgrace was accomplished by Hleinze and Mrs. Brackett, an employe of the Ieinze outfit, and by Harney himself, prior to the time when it is pretended that the work was undertaken by his enemies. The disgrace to the judge was in the acts and the facts connecting him with Heinze and Mrs. Brackett, and not in the telling of them, nor in any attempt properly to punish himt for them. TAXATION OF RAILWAYS The Interstate Commerce conmmission has issued as a part of the appendix to its sixteenth annual report a volume pre senting a compilation of state laws re lating to the taxation of railways. The facts presented are calculated to expose, if they do not correct, some errors in popular theories. For instance, it has been urged by rail way representatives that the best approved system of taxation of railway property was by a fixed per cent on gross or net earnings within a state, while the poli ticians who seek favor with the voters by fighting corporations have insisted in recent years that the property should be taxed on a valuation to be fixed by the market value of stocks and securities. The national commission concludes from a study of the laws passed that the tendency during the past twelve years has not been towards an abandonment of the theory of the general property tax so far as railways are concerned. The same laws show general dissatisfaction with the apportionment of railway taxes, after collection, between the state and the counties and cities within the state, through numerous experiments to effect satisfactory division of the tax. In this last condition is found the cause for the opposition to the percentage-of-carnt ings system of taxing railways. It is unques tionably the most simple and fair means of taxation of such property as between the state and the companies, but opposi tion has arisen because under it the cities and counties have found it difficult, when not wholly impossible, to secure a share of the revenues for the burdens of local government. The commission suggests that the prom inence of the subject of railway taxation in legislative consideration is due to the fact that railways annually contribute in excess of $5o,ooo,ooo to the expenses of government. Another and principal cause of its prominence is to be found in the desire of state politicians to exploit an affectation of concern for the "plain people." The woll-cultivated prejudice against railway corporations make them popular targets, and the sheer impossi bility of assessing them as other property is valued for taxation purposes affords the demagogue easy argument in support of any appeal which his own ignorance of the complex subject may suggest. And so it comes that men who cannot distin guish between a prairie siding and a city terminal in estimating the cost or value of a mile of railway undertake to frame laws for just and equitable taxation of railroad property with almost as great a number in variety of results as there are state legislatures. And each new legislator advances some new idea to prompt an amendment to the laws at each recurring session. A DISTINGUISHED VISITOR The lion. Carter Harrison, four times elected mayor of Chicago, is in and of Butte today. Like Mayor Mullins, he came in the guise of a farmer, wearing a face of tan, some whiskers and plain clothing. The resemblance between the two mayors ends there. Throughout his wide circle of ac quaintances Mayor IHarrison is esteemed as a presidential possibility who can have the nomination for vice president when ever lie will be pleased to condescend. To be sure, his acquaintances have not coml prised a majority of any national con ventions to date, but they never have been mistaken with respect to what they can do with Carter to lead. lie comes of straight democratic stock, but maintains conferring relations with William Jen nings Bryan. He declines to talk politics for publication, which is further evidence that lie possesses the wisdom of the poli tician. For nearly a decade he has held the support of the business interests of Chicago as a candidate, from bank owners to bathhouse proprietors. lie always has supported the party ticket regardless of candidates, and as a candidate would have nothing in his record to disqualify him from standing on the platform regardless of principles. Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Bryan and Senator Gorman and Henry Watter son and Judge Parker anti Tammany and Willic Hearst all could support Carter Hlarrison without other embarrassment than that which is inevitable to men who find it necessary to win with a second choice in politics. Anld lie could carry Chicago. All unmindful of Prof. Langley's efforts, tile St. louis Globe-Democrat calls for the invention of a vessel adaptc ' to the peculiarities of the Missouri rive:. The Mississippi republicans are not making so much fuss about it as the Ohio democrats, but they have the same kind of a victory coiiiing to them. Montana is likely to be the only state in the world where in legal practice equity cases are regarded as those in which it is proper to have questions of law deter mined by incompetent judges and to have questions of fact ignored. The prize ring is rapidly securing recognition as the kindergarten of the vaudeville school. You may have noticed that Gen. Miles has dropped out of consideration both as a candidate and as an issue. Probably those persons who doubt Mayor Mullins' title to a residence and a farm in Idaho do not understand the na ture of an oath tinder the federal laws. The eastern maiden who insisted upon having the word "obey" omitted at the wedding ceremony evidently did not get her ideas of the sanctity of the marriage vows front reading the reports of divorce court proceedings. The ignorance of the American people in governmental affairs may make it neces sary for Mr. Bryan to postpone his 'tudy of European conditions till after the next national democratic convention. It would be very humiliating to the Colonel to feel that his party had made a mistake on ac count of his absence at a critical time. No mistake will be made in addressing him as "Judge" McHatton. A pennant race in a league composed ex clusively of the Butte and Seattle teams would be well worth the price of admis sion. After his many years of intimate as sociation with official life in Chicago, Mr, Carter Harrison ought to find the moral atmosphere of Butte delightfully pure and refreshing. The Ogden convention will find the weekly letters of Wall street commission brokers full of interesting talk about the benefits of liquidation. As an early settler upon the desert land of Idaho, Farmer Mullins naturally is deeply interested in irrigation. Alder. men over whomn the mayor has no control, however, made it seem necessary ftor h. Mullins to be represented at Ogden by proxy. While Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria must appreciate King Edward's assurance that he can always find a refuge in England, at the same time he cannot avoid the painful realization that English boats are distressingly slow in emergencies. Sam Parks needs some kind of a in dication which will head off the ndict ments. INALIENABLE RIGHT TO MARRY The Rev. Mr. Melody Combats Theories of Scientists and Statesmen. [New York Herald.] Has every man an inalienable right to marry, no matter what his condition so cially, financially or physically? Scientists and statesmen have said no, and strongly advocated the restriction of marriage for the general benefit of the race. Society has been looking with grow ing favor upon this idea for several years. Now comes Rev. Webster Melody, a Chi cago priest of the Catholic church, with a vigorous "Yes." In a thesis on which he has just won the doctor's degree in the Roman Catholic university at Washington Dr. Melody de fends marriage as a sacrament beyond hu man laws, and which cannot be met with interference from any human source. "There never was a time," says Dr. ,Melody in meeting the argument of his op ponents, "when it was generally thought by civilized parents to be no offense to bring children into the world without any pros pect of being able to support them. This 'consideration' occupies the same place in ethics today that it has in the past and shall have in the future. What we must notice, however, is an exaggerated pru dence regarding marriage held by the youth." It is pointed out to be in the first place the inalienable right of men and women to marry. Christian doctrine, he says, teaches that marriage is oneness of heart, that it is the blending togther in harmony of souls that find in such association and sentiment otherwise held waste in incompleteness or dwarfs in unsympathetic loneliness. Alone, man lives but half a life. He is entitled to a full life, and legislatures, backed by science, are unauthorized to in terfere with this, says the Rev. Mr. .Melody. "The old saying that husband and wife are to each other as halves of a whole is perfectly true. In a profound sense man is the perfection of woman, as woman is of mian." There is a spiritual blessing in marriage, 'Mr. Melody asserts, which comes even to the depraved and to those against whom legislatures might decide to set up the bars. It is pointed out that though tie nature of man is depraved and that in his choice of worldly things-Mr. Melody quotes an old writer-he chooses virtue last, yet when it comes to the choice of a wife he asks first: "Is she virtuous?" and second,,"Is she beautiful, witty and rich?" Whether or not the man himself possesses virtue, he beeks it in his wife. The scientist, too, has reckoned without considering the influence of the child, the writer argues. Long Dinners' Banished. [Boston Globe.] Fashion and the family physican are united in a good cause. Both are frown ing today upon the long dinner, with all sorts and kinds of food, a large share of the edibles, when mixed, being as indi gestible as certain securities in the stock market. Ella Morris Kretchner has lately said in a magazine article: "A leader of fashion in the stone age, in devouring a fourth of an aimal the size of a sheep and valiantly cracking the bones, doubtless felt that he was doing the approved thing in a properly elegant manner. And, ethi cally speaking, he was not as far out of the way as his modern brother, who, with less hercic digestion, has, for the past quarter century and longer, invited those whom he would honor (mind I not his enemies) to dine upon :6 courses and a dozen wines." There is health and satisfaction in a steak and its simple fixings, or a meal of fish fresh from the sea with a dash of something on the side; but the menu which runs from cocktails at 7:3o in the evening to black coffee at so is a delusion and a snare. Those Choptank Mosquitoes. [Philadelphia Record.] The champion mosquitoes of the world, according to a traveler, are those of Tay lor Island, on the Choptank river, Md. They are often a half an inch long, and are perfectly black, with white feet. Thiey do not sing and their bite is like the ting of a bee. People who are obliged to go out of doors wear as a protection a hoop on their heads, from which hangs a netting, which is belted into the waist. They carry about them a piece of fat pork, which, when applied to a sting or bite, acts as an antidote. The Choptank river region is the great market garden of Baltimore, Phila delphia and other Eastern cities, and one theory to account for the remarkable siese of the mosquitoes is that they feed on the splendid fruits and vegetables which grow so luxuriously there and are thus lattened to a far greater degree than their brothers who live in less favored localities, Critic's Voice Raised in Praise. [New York Sun.] The president's Labor Day address de livered at Syracuse, N. Y., is a sound and conservative utterance, befitting the oc casion and the times, and the ideas and principles which it inculcates are those which abide at the foundations of Amer ican liberty and the common weal. Those who may have looked for a deliverance iof a more sensational order and perhaps of a political or partisan significance will, hip pily, be wholly disappointed. Mr. Roose velt's speech is to be commended without reservation of any kind whatsoever. Uninspired Reply, [Yonkers Statesman.] "Who was it who saw the handwriting on the wall, Freddie?" asked the Sunday school teacher. "The landlord, ma'am," quickly replied the little boy, who lives in a flat. THE CROWD, Somebody stands on the pavement there, Lifting his voice in a lusty cheer. Seeking to bury his own dull care, He welcomes each figure that may appear, Hle hails the hero of martial rank, IHe hails the clown, who must laugh to live, The welcome he offers the mountebank Is the highest welcome his soul can give. And this is the fame that men declare Is worth the toil and the bitter tear; Somebody stands on the pavement there, Lifting his voice in a lusty cheer, -Washington Star. CONSUMPTIVE IMMUNES Interesting Theories by an Expert Who 8ooffs at Hereditary Causes. [New York World.] Consumption causes more than :oo,ooo deaths in the United States every year; it slays nearly as many in Germany; in France again nearly the same; in Austria Bo,ooo; in Italy So,ooo; in Great Britain 6o,ooo. Besides all theie many deaths at tributed to other diseases are due to weak ening by consumption predisposing the pa tient to illness. The disease, so Justly dreaded, says Dr. prick, cannot be inherited. It is due to micro-organic life, and to that alone. The germs themselves are alive; they live, re produce themselves and die. They may lurk in houses where consumptives have lived, may even be dug out to do mischief by "the brooms of the mothers of the sec ond generation." But "transmission of tuberculosis from parent to offspring is of infrequent occurrence," and when it does occur it is by contagion, not through in heritance. The causes disposing a person to receive the consumption germs readily are a de formed chest, smallpox, measles, typhoid, drunkenness, dissipation of other sorts everything that exhausts the nervous sys tem. The death rate is highest from con sumption between is and as years of age, just when the body should be most vigor ous. Excessive eating and drinking, to bmacco and other hygenic sins multiply the dangers. Consumption is largely a disease of the poor; with them it is often a result of under feeding. Curious immunities from consumption are noted. Jews have it seldom. The In dian never knew the disease until he met the white man. Now it is fatal to him; the negro is three times as susceptible as the white. Of European races the per centage of deaths increases in the follow ing order: Spaniards, Italians, French, English, Germans and Irish. Keep out in the open air, says Dr. Frick, to consumtives, but don't keep exercising. "Frequently poor consumptives exercise themselves into the grave." Absolute rest in the open air is needed by the consump tive in the active stage. As he improves he may gradually increase his bodily activity and practice deep breathing. INVESTING IN ART Rugs and Other Things Which Bteadily Grow in Value. [The World's Work.] It is a sign of the times that con tractors in New York are building houses in recent years to sell to chance customers at prices ranging as high as from $3oo,ooo to $5oo,ooo. In no other city or time would contractors dare to build houses for the general market, hoping to sell them for more than $roo,ooo; but whereas a half century ago the furnishing of the wealthiest homes was characterized by monstrous ugliness, a single generation has seen a revolution in American taste. Even until a decade ago the acquisition of costly col lections in art was confined to paintings, and the ruling spirit was to get the most display for the greatest outlay, with a few notable exceptions. Little by little a group of millionaires found time and inclination to appreciate or to value porcelain, rugs, tapestries and gems. It is common for a plutocrat of this era to spend $S,ooo,ooo in furnishing his home, and the ablest ex perts sell their services to insure the high est standard of taste. An American millionaire paid $soo,ooo for three tapestries to fit a wall in his newly erected palace. Another set of three pieces of tapestry was sold for $3oo, 0oo to adorn an American home. The wife of another American paid $Sss,ooo for a set of furniture not long ago, and there were only four pieces. Their value was in the tapestry upholstering. In a shop in Paris there are three panels of tapestry for which $zoo,ooo each is asked. The dealer has an agent in this country, who is confident of finding a purchaser as soon as he finds the millionaire who wants costly tapestries. At the sale of the Mar quand collection last winter a rug was sold for $38,ooo. It is supposed to have been bought by a dealer who will hold it until he finds a purchaser willing to pay $75,ooo or even $Soo,ooo for the treasure. Senator Clark of Montana has a collection of rugs among the furnishings of his home for whioh he paid at lowest estimate $aso,ooo. Unostentatious Philadelphia can furnish a list of $S,ooo,ooo worth of paintings in 25 frames hanging in the private galleries of her millionaire collectors. Three Sleepless Nights. [Chicago Tribune.] The late Peter M. Arthur, chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, was born in Scotland, but his humor was of an Irish rather than a Scottish sort. Mr. Arthur was a good deal of a humor ist, many anecdotes of him having been circulated in Cleveland since his death. One of these anecdotes concerns a night that he once passed without sleep -a night of hard work, wherein he avert ed a great strike. An assistant, in a sentimental tone, sym pathized with Mr. Arthur for his loss of rest. "It is too bad," he said. "No man should be driven like this. A whole night without sleep I You will break down." Mr. Arthur disliked sentimentalism coddling-profoundly. He said with a frown : "It isn't one night I have gone without sleep. It's three nights." "Three nights?" said the other. "How so?" "Why," said Mr. Arthur, "last night, tonight and tomorrow night-I haven't slept a wink in one of them." Twain's Little Joke. [Boston Post.] Bishop William Crosswell Doane of Albany, recently entertained J. Pierpont 'Morgan at Northeast Harbor. Bishop Doane was at one time the rec tor of an Episcopal church In Hartford, and the services at this church Mark Twain would occasionally attend. Twain, one Sunday, played a joke upon the rec tor. "Dr. Doane," he said, at the end of the service, "I enjoyed your sermon this morning. I welcomed it like an old friend. I have, you know, a book at home containing every word of it," "You have not," said Dr. Doane. "I have so," said the humorist. "Well, send that book to me. I'd like to see it." "I'll send it," Twain replied. And he sent, the next morning, an un abridged dictionary to the rector. Painfully Irreverent. [Washington Star.] "Don't you think it would be a good plan to utter a few wise and patriotic senti ments ?" "What's the use?" answered Senator Sorghum. "Thomas Jefferson' and those other old fellows worked that plan for all it was worth, but the time has passed when you can exchange language for votes in lArge quantities." PEOPLE WE MEET Rev. J. W. Bergin, who has just ar rived from Texas and assumed charge of St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal Church South in this city is from Rosebud. He is married and has been In the ministry during the last six years. Mr. and Mrs. Bergin are both graduates from the South western University of Texas. This is a Methodist school and is celebrated throughout the South as an educational in stitution of high order. Mr. BergLn has come here prepared to like the people end intends to make his stay among them a success, and to this end seeks the active co-operation of every member of his church. Alderman and Mrs. Thomas Fleming of Anaconda were in the city last even ing. Louis King, a pioneer resident of Ana conda, was in town last night on his way to Seattle, where he goes on a visit. Lew Coleman, Henry Rainsford and G. S. E. Wisner, all of Anaconda, were in the city yesterday on their way to Helena, where they go to attend the sessions of the Masonic bodies. George Burt of Terry stopped over in Butte yesterday en route to Ogden, where he will attend the irrigation congress. Miss M. W. O'Leary has left for Wis dom, Beaverhead county, where she will teach school. Ex-Gov. B. F. White of Dillon is in the city today. A meeting of the St. Louis fair commission is in session and Mr. White is one of the busy ones. Lynn Alexander has returned from Los Angeles and is stopping at the Montana. E. W. King of Bozeman, who has vast business interests near Lewistown, and j. Moran, the paper mill man of Manhattan, near Helena, are registered at the Finlen. The grand lodge of Masons meets in Helena tomorrow and will continue until Thursday night. A good business ses sion is promised and among the Butte delegation to attend will be H. L. Frank, junior warden of the grand lodge; Fred Holbrook, senior warden of Silver Bow lodge; Chapman, Miller, McCauley, Ton kin and Christie. AMONG THE PLAYERS BY ASSOCIATED PRESI. Boston, Sept. :s.-Last night was his toric in Boston's theatrical annals, as it chronicled the opening of the Globe the ater, as well as recorded the first perform ance of a new play called "John Ermine of the Yellowstone," with James K. Hack ett as leading character. The new theater is under the management of Weber & Fields. The play, which had its first pro duction last night, is founded upon Fred erick Remington's frontier novel of the same name, dramatized by Louis E. Ship man. The audience last night was a brilliant one and the play was warmly received. James and Wards. Few, if any, of the productions launched this season, are said to compare in the lavish nature of their scenic equipment with that which Wagenhals & Kemper are said to have provided for "Alexander the Great," the new play to be presented by Louis James and Frederick Warde next Sunday, Monday and Tuesday nights and Tuesday matinee. Among the many elaborate stage settings that which has attracted the most enthusi astic comment is the scene in the mountain tops above the clouds, where history tells us Alexander wept because he imagined he had arrived at the end of the world and that, therefore, there were no more nations to conquer. The clouds, which are below the crags of the mountain heights on Which Alexan der's forces are encamped, are said to re semble the waves of an angry sea. They are rent asunder every once in a while by a terrific electric storm. The lightning gives way to sleet and hail, and the sol diers become hidden in the frosty mists which gradually ascend and finally pre cipitate a blinding snowstorm. Gradually the storm subsides and a sun rise effect is obtained, the glory of which is known only to the mountaineers. This is the scenic feature of the play, and re ports concerning its marvelous realism would attract the playgoer apart from the success achieved by the play, or even the reputation of the stars. The popular leading man, Norman Hack ett, will be seen as Clitus, and beautiful Margaret Bourne as Roxana. Others in the cast are Thomas Cooke, Wadsworth Harris, Engel Summer, Elona Leonard, Harry McFayden, Aphie James and Sterling Whitney. Shirley Company Tonight. The Shirley company opens its engage ment at the Grand Opera house this even ing in -Du Maurier's masterpiece, "Trilby." The success of this company in San Fran cisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Seattle and Spokane has been phenomenal. The east of the play is distributed among a com pany of actors, each of whom has a recog nized standing in his profession, and a most artistic production of the famous pray can be well anticipated. The advance sale of reserved seats in dicates a large attendance this evening. Patti Never Here. Shamrock III-Madame Patti has never sung in Butte.-Dramatic Editor Inter Mountain. Nothing Wasted.
