PRICE FIVB OU* 1he Basis of Wealth. About zoo years ago John Jacob Astor laid the foundation of the fortune which to-day ex ceeds that of any other in the United Stat s. l-ie realized that the little city on Manhattan Island would one day be a great place, and all the surplus money he be came possessed of was put into real property. This policy the Astor family has pursued down to the present time, and it is esti mated that the income of the family every day in the year from its real estate investments is $i,ooo. The Astors, while pur chasing inside property whenever it is desirable, do not by any means confine themselves to that class of investment. Only a year ago a purchase of property, a long distance from the city prop er, was made for something like $2,ooo,ooo. Some improvements have since been undertaken, and it is estimated that to-day it is worth $3,ooo,ooo. Did the original John Jacob Astor live to-day, and visit Hel ena, he would undoubtedly take the opportunity now offered to make investments in real estate in the Capitl1 City. Bargains in real property can be had just now which in a month, when the build ing boom fairly, starts, will be out of the question. We have now on our books a'larger list ol property for sale thin any other firm of real estate dealers in IHel ena, and there are in the list a great number of bargaips-prop erties, which, if putehased now, will as surely increase in value a, the city is to grow, and to the Hel. ena Astor there are investments which will pay a handsome in terest. Hundreds of men in Helen, are to-day paying rent who, by a l:ttie exertion and foretho!ght could own a house of their own, pleasantly and conveniently lo cated. It is not too late, how ever, to make a start in this di. tion, and just now we are pre pared to offer a number of de. cided bargains In this line. To the man of moderate means we say come and see us, and if yot have any snap or vim in your make-up, inside of sixty days you will he paying for a house of your own, instead of adding to the in come of the Astors. Men of larger means, who desire a fin i hed house, and do not care tc have the bother of building, will iind on our lists some very de sirable, and elegant residences, modernly built, ready for occu pancy, and which will be sold on easy terms. Tlhere comes a time in the career of almost every person, when, owing to some untorseen circumstance, sickness or death, the chance to make a good in vestment, or the desire to im prove his or her home, it is nec essary to become a borrower. Under such circumstances it is not necessary for the man or woman who owns real estate to pay exorbitant rates of interest. We are the HIelena agents of the Jarvis-Conklin Mortgage Trust Co., which has a capital of a mil lion and a half dollars, and are always ready to accommodate those who need financial assist ance. We have loaned money on Helena real estate all during the winter, and will continue to do it, at the lowest rate of inter est. Borrowers are given every advantage consistent with sound buhiness principles. Conven :etly located on the ground floor of the Bailey block, with commodious offlices, a cor dial invitation is extended to vis itors to call and look over our lists. All the information in our posession in regard to the city and s:ate is at the disposal of those unacquainted with Ilelena and her l.eourc s. A like cor dial invitation is extended to those reidcnts of the c.tyv who desire to invest for s!'eculation, to build homes, or obtain loans on real estate. St!eee & Clements, HEAiHEN AND HERETIC, The Presbyterian Assembly Dis cusses Foreign Missions and Rev. Dr. Brlggs. Nearly Three Thousand Were Added to the Fold in Foreign Lands. Conservative Action on Dr. Brigg.' Case Total Value of Church Properry Loan Tund Urged. DETROIT, May 27.-After devotional exer cises at the Presbyterian general assembly, Dr. Johnson reported favorably on a re. ligious exhibit at the World's fair. Dr. Nicole read the report from the committee on increase of ministry, with particular reference to the reception of ministers from other denominations. The stand committee on foreign missions reported, noting the resignation of John C. Lowrio, D.D., senior secretary, and the appointment of David Gregg, D.D., to be a member of the board; also of a field secretary,leov.Thomas Marshall. The secretary's report for the year ending April 30 shows expenditures of $973,000, which, with the shortage from last year, leaves a deficit of $90,000. An unusu ally large number of candidates applied for foreign work last year, and seventy-three were found qualified and sent out. The aggregate addition to mission churohes is 2,875. An increase of pupils in schools is shown, as is also growth in favor of .mdi cal missions. Work has been hindered greatly by the war between Guatemala and San Salvador, and by the present strife in Chili, but encouraging reports are received from elsewhere. At the afternoon session the standing committee on church erection reported. Part of the year called for caution, owing to the exhaustion of the special fund pro vided by L. 14. Stuart and of the small working balance heretofore carried from year to year. The steady advance of the church requires advance in church erection. The amount of aid asked the last five years has been 31 per cent. more than for the five years before that. More than half of our 6,894 churches give nothing to this board. Our income for the year has been $126,642. The aggregate value of church and manse property secured by aided churches in the ynr was almost $400,000. A careful estimate of the total value of churches and manses owned by churches of the assembly in the United States is $15,000,000. About two-thirds of this belongs to churches in the synods of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Baltimore. The board want $150,000 this year and the formation of a large loan fund is recommended. Dr. Bartlett yielded the floor to Dr. Pat ton,who asked to read so much of the re port on theological seminaries as bears on the case of Dr. Biggs, in order that it may be printed and distributed to the assembly when it comes up for action to-morrow. The committee reply to so much of tire re port of the Union 'I heological seminary as bearson Dr. Briggs' appointment or trans fer to the chair of biblical theology reads: "Our duty is a delicate one, es pecially as the presbytery of New York is trying him on the charge of heresy, as we must not prejudge a case which at some time must come before us on appeal. The ques tion before us is not that of his doctrinal soundness, but that of approval of his elec tion by the assembly. We admit that in one view the trustees may have ground for their denial of the right of the assembly to veto the transfer of a professor from one chair to another. 'lhe trustees of the semi nary consider that original appointment gives status, and that the assembly has no right to forbid; but a transfer simply assigns duty, and with that the assembly has no right to interfere. Now, while we think the assembly has control of both, yet. in view of the cordial relations always existing between it and the trustees of the seminary, it would be proper to appoint a coummittee of conference with them to report. to the next assembly." In accordance with these views the committee recommend that the assembly approve of the appointment of Dr, Bripcs to the Robinson chair of Bib lical theology of Union Theologicas semi nary, and that a committee of conference with the trustees of that institution be ap pointed by the assembly to report to the next assembly. There is a great dealof talk to-night over Patton's report on Briggs. Briggs has quite a few friends who speak for him, but it is thought the report will have a two thirds majority. The general opinion ex pressed by groups in the convention seemed to be that the right of veto must be exer cised now or not at all. For a Lutheran College. LEBASON, Pa., May 27.-An offer was made to the Lutheran synod today through the board of education, of $150,000 to found a Lutheran seminary in Omaha, Neb., pro vided the church raisod $150,000 in one year from July next, and resolutions instructing the board to accept the proposition and take the necessary steps to meet the condi - tions, were unanimonusiy adopted, amid great enthusiasm. Subscriptions in cash were then offered so fzlely that regular business was suspended. More than L20, 000 was subscribed. Augustus Kountz, of Now YInk, who made the generous offer, gave $10,000 additional, "in memory of his sainted parents." Reforined Presbyterlans.

Run In a )renching Drain-Won by Com men in 2,50 4-5, LoNON, May 27.-The great event of the English turf was run to-day at Epsom. It was the second day of the Epsom meeting, and the race for the derby stakes was the event of the day. As usual the course was crowded with all classes and condition of people, and the road from London to Ep son Downs was filled with vehicles of every description. There was the usual condi tions, and the distance was about a mile and a half. The victor was Sir John Stone's colt Common. M. E. Blanco's colt Gouver neur second, and Sir James Duke's colt Martenburg third. There were eleven starters. Just before the race a heavy shower set in and the race was run in a drenching rain. After the horses we e at the post the frst attempt to get away resulted in a false start. At the next attempt they gRot away splendidly. Deomrnster. went to the front and set the pace for a quarter mile. Then Dorcas took the lead, but was soon over hauled and passed by Gouverneur, who led at the mile post. Dorcas, who had now been joined by Common, closed up, but coming down Tattenham hill Common forged ahead as they entered the straight. When the distance post was reached he drew clear of the others and won in a can ter, Cuttlestone fourth. Simonian, though ridden hard, was last horse throughout the race.

CuxcAno, May 27.-Following the decision of the supreme court in the "original pack ag;e" case an interesting circular comes to the collector of this customs direct from Commissioner of Internal liovenuo Mason. Tlte commissioner states that he has re ceived many letters stating that in ma:ny parts of the country retail liquor dealers claim to hold a government licenle to sell liquor and defy the local or state pIlhibi tory laws. The commissioner says th, tbe lief is evidently current that the lnitied Stales licenses liquor selling, and adds: "Once for all this ottice wishes it unltder stood that the government does not helunse liquor sellitie of whatever description and only puts a yearly tax on liquor sollers land does not seek to interfere in prohibitory districts."

CATHOLICS IN AMERICA, Efrorts Being Made to Secure Priests and Bishops of Different Na tionalities. Not a Single Canadian Bishop to More Than a Million Countrymen. Four flundred Thousand European Catho lies Yearly Coming to This Country -To Keep Them Faithful. BErLIN, May 27.-It is learned hero that Herr Cahensly is principal mover in the ef forts of European Catholic emigration so cleties to induce the pope to follow distinct national lines in fostering church work among Catholic emigrants in America. This subject was referred to in recent dis patches. Cahensly's championship of4he interest of Germans in America has borne fruit in frequent instructions to Herr ton Schloezor, German representative at the Vatican, to use his influence whenever he could. The Anustro-Hungarian ambassador, it is undeastood, has similar instructions and Cahenaly, when he went to Rome to present the memorial of the Lucerne con ference, was armed with letters of approval from many prominent European and Canadian Catholics. Speaking of the nomination of Kanzow as archbishop in America, Ambassador von Schloezer said to Cahensly: "This is an important act that will interest all Prussia." He added that he would warmly congratulate and thank the cardinal secretary of state for this choice, so favorable to German interests. M. Mercier, of Quebec, warmly recom mended the plan to the pope, saying that when he assisted at the Baltimore centen nary he felt acute regret on finding that there were no Canadians among American bishops, notwithstanding there are more than a million Canadians in the United States. It is significant that this whole business has been conducted so far without the knowledge or advice of the American hierarchy. The campaign has been directed solely by the committee in Germany, which, by its activity, has se cured the support and approbation of other European countries. There will be great curiosity to know the view American bish ops take of the matter. The plan proposed in the memorial seems to be peculiarly adapted for the preservation in America of the languages and race distinctions of emigrants. It has been impossible to secure a list of signa tures to this memorial, but the body of the document itself has been obtained. It speaks of the Lucerne congress as a meet ing to consider the best means of procuring the spiritual and temporal welfare of their Catholic fellow countrymen, who are emigrating to the America at the rate of upwards of 400,(000 a year. 'TheUh.vmuer ous emigrants, says the memorlai, souhl constitute a grant power and a mighty factor in the developmont of Catholicity in different parts of America. It then goes on to detail the plans necessary to carry out the views. First of all it would be neces sary to form into separate parishes or mis sions different groups of emigrants of dif ferent nationalities, whore numbers and resources ao allow, and parishes should be confined to priests of the same nationality. '"In this way," says the memorial, "cher ished recollections of fatherland would be constantly brought back to the immigrants." V/here the limited number of different nationalities will not permit of separate parishes, the priests directing such groups should be conversant with their different lanua~ges, and should be obliged to give instructions to all different groups in their own language. Where there are no christian public schools. parochial schools ere to be established. The list of studies for these schools should alwa, . comprise the national languages of the different races of emigrants, as well ras the language and history of their adopted country. Catholic associations of different kinds should be formed to preserve Catho lics frorf the wicked societies of Free Masonry, etc. As often as feasible Catho lies of every nationality should have one bishop of their own race. In all Catholic countries from which emigration is taking place the holy see should favor and shelter seinnaries and schools instituted for the r'uncation of missionaries for emigrants. A number of Italian missionaries haveal re .lyv gone to America, and others of other nations ire waiting for the pope to guQran to, them "untrammeled exercise of minis try by decree of his infallible wisdom." I hus, provided the holy see will lend its in dispernsable co-operatioln, marvelous re suits will be obtained, 'iPoor emigrants will lind again in America their own par irhee, their own schools, their own socie ties, their own language, and they will rrove the means of extending the extent of Jesus Christ's kingdom on earth.

By the Infamous Treatment of Women Niberlan Conviets. INooxi, May 27.-The czarowitz, who is now fully recovered from the blow of the Japanese assassin, is to go through the course imapped out when he started from Russia. 'The Ussuri railway, the eastern most section of the proposed trans-Siberian line, has already been completed for nearly 300 miles from Vlndivostock, and the czarowitz will ride over it for that distance in a train specially equipped for his use, and will formally inaugurate the line. The railway so far is chiefly the product of convict la bor, and largely that of womrnn convicts, who are pushed on to work byljrutal sever ity on the part of the guards. A letter from Tokio, Japan, giving the story of a prisoner recently escaped from Siberia, says that the women employed to dig and remove the earth on this line are almost per ishing by scores. 'They are selected for the work without any regard to previous manual experience, political pris oners, some of them women of refinement and delicate training, being driven by violence to the use of the pick and shovel. If they show weakness they are mercilessly whipped. Women arriving in eastern Si beria in the convict gangs from Enseia are entirely at the mercy of the guards, and those who refuse to submit to anything re quired of them are detailed to work on the railway. This generally means death in a short time. It is likely that the-se matters will be carefully covered during the journey of the czarowitz, although to make a pretense of official liberality a few specially favored convicts will be permitted to present addresses and petitions for par don. The czarowuitz will also go through the form of examining the official aide of Siberian convict existence, which for sov eral months past has been undergoing pol ish for his inspection. One reason for this is that he may be able to make a favorable report to his mother, who is said to be very much touched by the frequent stories of biberian cruelty and sufferine. Takes Tupper to Task. LONDON, May 27-Prof. Goldwin Smith has a brief letter in the Times to-day on Tupper's article in the Contemporary se view, specially dealing with the charge that the conservatives at the last election had to face a formidable conspiracy to sub vert British institutions in Canada and to annex the dominion to the United States. Smith shows that Sir John MacDonald at Ottawa had not dared to say one syllable on the subject. "The charge," he says, "is a figment constructed out of material sup plied by reptile agencies for election pur poses and it is now discarded. The Cana dian liberals were fighting not only against protection but against government by cor ruption." No Sign of Plenro-Pnenumonla. LIVERPOOL, May 27.-Further particulars in regard to the reported seizure yesterday of a cargo of cattle on board of the steam ship Lake iHuron, from Montreal, on the ground that pleuro-pneumonia existed among the animals show that only one head was suspected of being a sufferer from the disease. The cattle inspector here ordered the animal killed and its lungs sent to London for analysis. The government analysist to-day telegraphed that there was not the slightest trace of pleuro-pneumonia in the lunas submitted to him, and conse quently the cargo was landed. Scared the Prelate. LoNDON. May 27.-The bishop of London, Frederick Temple, received a mysterious letter last week, warning him an attempt would be made to assassinate him at the ordinance service at St. Paul's cathedral on Sunday last.

PROSPECiS AND POOLS, Operations of an Alleged Silver Com bination Are Probably Much Exaggerated. The White Motal Has Maintained Its Position With Remark able Steadiness., European Governmean.s endy to Unload Should the Market G(o Up-Heavy Foreign Buying. New Yoax, May 27.-Ilbadstreet's says that according to the surface indications silver bullion and silver certificates are and have been for several months one of the least active features of the international markets. The offerings of bullion to the United States treasury under the law of 1890 have been reasonably large, and the government has shown a disposition to re strict its purchases rather than to accept tenders at slightly advanced prices. This, however, has not prevented the treasury from obtaining its monthly quota of 4,515), (000 ounces. as provided for by the law, without any great difflliculty. Abroad the bullion market seems to labor under the usual dullness incident to the season when the decreased demands from the east natur ally tend to flatten the silver market. This is increaced by tha general financial pressure on the European markets, which, of course, tends to discourage operations in silver, and has a turther depressing in fl.nence on oriental exchanges. Yet, in spite of these circumstances, silver Las maintained its position with remarkable steadiness. In fact, prices have not materi ally declined in the] last two months. although in the meantime the general markets here and abroad have suffere materially from a financial disorganization and a disturbance of credits of no small magnitude. Itussia's demand for gold, the apparent financial breakdown of Por tugal and the unfavorable position of the Argentine continue to create distrust and anxiety. But though silver prices have fallen to a low level, the movement does not seem to have extended as far as the general situation would have probably justified. Some interesting advice comes from Paris in regard to the operations of an alleged silver pool. It would seem that there is more or less exagerat ion in connection with the matter. But there is a reason to believe that a substantial foundation exists for the statements which attribute to cer tain foreign financiers an intention of in augnrating a speculative movement in the Swhite metal, based en the absorption by our government of the current production of the United States and the small stock which exists in the world. It is urged that the moment for such operations is inoppor tune, that the Austrian government is about to introduce a gold standard, and may at any moinent market a silver stock of 150,000,100 florins imore or I es) whioh it iholds, while Italy. France, RIoumania and other counties stand ready to throw oii the market large surplus stocks of silver on which they would be only too glad to realize. The facts of the matter so far as they have developed on this side of the Atlantic are well known. There has been heavy for sign buying of siver bullion in this market recently. The hbullion purchased amounts to between 1,000,000 and 2,00t0,000 ounces, and is still held here for account of its for eign owners. It has been in the main turned into bullion certificates, the deposits for this purpose accounting for the remark able and sudden increase in the amount of bullion certificates outstanding from below 5,000,000 ounces to abput 5.800,000 ounces. 'this action was dictated by two-fold causes. Not only did it prevent any speculative ad vance of silver prices on the decrease of the visible supply, but in the form of silver cer tificates the metal is avaiiable for loans,and can be carried at a comparatively esmall cost. These facts are comparatively well known in Wall street. In the absence of any speculative tendency they havo failed to attract much attention, and the general impression is that the transactions are of a purely speculative character, based on the small stock of mercantile silver existing in Europe, and the certainty of ai large eastern demaud within a few months.
