VOXXI-O1iHELENA. MONTANA. SATURDAY MORNING. JUNE 20_ 181 PICE FIVE CENTS IN VERY SATIRIC( MOOD. Sir John Gorete Lampoons Certain of His Colleagues in the Ministry. Gladstone and Others Threaten to Retaliate on Those who Hunt Wales. Chaplin's Atlantlc Oattle Dill-oMessage of Preeldent Pelligrlnl,of Argentilnej -Other Foreign News. (Copyright, 1891, New York Assoelated Prees.1 Loxroo, June 19.-Parliament will be prorogued Aug. 6. A vigorous effort will be made in the coconriitoo on education bill to extend the operations of the measure. Local party managers have received authen tic instructions to prepare for the dissolu tion of parliament early next summer. The government intends to summon the house early in January and stake their fate on the Irish local government bill. They calculate to dissolve parliament after carry ing the bill. Conservative uncertainty over the future of the party is leading to fur ther refusals by present members to re-con test their seats, and within the ministry itself discontent is producing disorganiza tion. A remarkable outburst in which Sir John E. Gorste expressed contempt for certain of his colleagues occurred in the Manipur debate. Being obliged ollicially to defend the Indian govern ment he made a mocking apology for the brutalities and stupidities of British rule abroad and behind gibes at the Indian gov ernment satyrized the imperial government. He said Senaputty was a man of brains; that his real crimes were independence and originality and that the government pre ferred amenable mediocrity. The accepted interpretation of the'speech is that Gorate, recognizing that the period of conservative power is about to close, is preparing for a time when he will reassume, with Lord itandolp Churchill, an independent posi tion, aiming to form and lead a group strong enough to give them eventual con trol of, or at leest the more prominent posi tion in the party. The baccarat row is not yet over. Cobb proposes to ask Stanhope what the duke of Cambridge intends to do to enforce the anti-gambling regulations in the army. Regretting their weakneis in abAndon ing the hunt on the prince of Wales, some other radicals mean to raise the sub ject again on army estimates. If plans to sustain the denunciation of the prince of Wales are pursued, liberal leaders will not only withdraw therefrom, but Gladstone privately states that he and his colleagues must retaliate on the defamers. The un concealed disgust of the balk of liberals over the prorosed further action of parlia ment in the direction of censure of the prince, may deter the democratic radicals from following the quest. Chaplin's Atlantic cattle bill, despite the seeming eimplicity of its provisions, chiefly relating to additional powers to inspect ves sels, has latent application of the severest protective character under a clause granting the board of agriculture power to insure animals.' proper ventilation' food, water, etc. 'bhe board obtains the snpreme regulation of the trade. A meet ing of the National Liberal club arranged for organized opposition to the amended American and Canadian regulations for improving the conditions of traelie and will reinforce the opposition against the new measure, which really aims to obstruct the importation of cattle. PRESIDENT I'ELLIGRINI. Summary of the Annual Message of the Argentine Executive. WASHINGTON, June 19.-The bureau of American republics has received a copy of the annual message of President Pellegrini, of Argentine Republic, laid before congress May last. He states that exceptional meas ures were adopted declaring the city of Buenos Ayres in a state of siege; and the suppression of a few newspapers that were stirring up strife. Concessions of national lands, coving 00,000 square miles, which have been made to speculators for coloniza tion purposes, have been revoked, as the holders of the concessions failed to carry out the conditions on which they obtained the lands. Many public works had of necessity been suspended for lck of funds. Assisted immigration from Europe had been stopped. The revenues for 1890, were, in currency $73,400,000; expenditures. $92. 800,000; leaving a deficit of $19,00,000. The revenues for 1891 had been calculated at $26,000,000 gold. President 1'elligrini expressed the hope that the country, by the aid of the miratorimus loan, negotiated in London, would be able to pay its way this year. Trade returns arc encouraging. Exports are increasing and imports declining. The financial crisis, the president says, grows worse daily. Paper money, of which there are $260,000,000 in circulation, contracted 80 per cent. He estimates the losses since the crisis began at .£200,000,000. The national bank now owes the treasury $60, 000.0(t) currency and $2,000,000 gold. He considers that the best solution of the financial difficulties would be to correct de fects in the state banking systen. revive the credit of state banks, and enable them to continue. For this purpose lie recoin mende a parliamentary cominission. He adds, *but the gold standard is the in superable difficulty in the way of resuming specie payments. If we want is metallic basis we must rerort to silver. All objec tions raised against a silver standa d may apply to Europe, but do not effect us." MINISTRY DEFEATED. The Liberals In the ("ommnnus Achieve a Notable Victory. LONnoN. June 19.-In the debate in the commons on the factory bill the amend ment of Buxton, liberal, to prohibit child ren under 11 years if age front workini: was adopted by a vote of 202 to 18;. The government was thus defeated. Morley challenged the government to any whether they opposed tH uxton's ameninment or not, wherenpon Home uu c retary Matthews intimated that the cov erniuent would not areipt the ina indi int. I he New,, cumienting upon the matter, says the blow Is both damagini slnd icuntu inions, and that out even the resignation of Houle Secretiiy Matthews will sumv the government from discredit and disgrace. The Chrinille says: "Truly, -cretmary Matthews is a covtly luxury to the state. The defeat of the gov-rtument will serious ly dninrge the prospects of every unionist eaudidate in the nhet general election." A'Itank in Distrre., LotIsnr, Juots 10.-There were rumors prevailing in filanital circles here to-day as to difficultice between Aurliotta head of the banking house of Matrietta & Co., ro Cettly transformed into it lijttul liability sumpany, and the trustees and executors of the new can tion, owing to a discovery that the lish i es of Murietta & Co. exceed the liabilities represented to the trustees and executors of the corporation. It was also said that fresh liabilities have been in curred since the formation of the limited liability nompany which will teqnire the further subsoriotlon of nearly $175,000 in order to avoid a calamity. The money necessary for the immediate requirements of the company was raised among the stoekholders, thus affording the concern temporary relief. Foreign Flasses. Thomas Chapman and James McLellan were killed at a barn raising near Thorn ton, OJut. It is announced in Lisbon that Gen. Da Fonseca, preeident of Brazil. will shortly pay a visit to Europe. 'three children were drowned by the up setting of a canoe in the lit. Lawrence river at Point Neuf, Canada, Thursday. Sixty earthquake shocks were experienced throuphout the province of Bengal. Thurs day, and many buildings were destroyed. SILVER ASSOCIATION. Meeting in New York-Comment of an Evening Paper. NEW YORK, June 19.-The executive com mittee of the National Siver association met to-day. It was stated that none of the proceedings were yet to be made public. An evening paper says that the rapid ad vance in the price of. silver yesterday set Wall street thinking. On the sixth of this month operations of the big French pool in were reported. To-day it was learned that whila there were indications that the first pool was liquidating to some extent, an other pool, also European, had begun work and was ready to take hold where the nest pool had left off. The plan of campaign seems to be based on the name lines as that of the first pool. At the present time the government's annual purchases of silver to ill the requirements of the silver act of 3890, use up 54,000.000 ounces of sil ver. This country's production of silver for 18110 was 02,930,831 nounces. This leaves 8 000,000 ounces to fill requirements and to fill export demands. Up to the passage of the July bill this country always exported annually from five to ten million ounces. The Mercantile Safe Deposit company. of New Pork, reptrts on hand June 1, 5,256,779 ounces of silver. As was told on July 6. one concern is thought to own at least 2,500,010 ounces of this amount. Outside of this supply there is in this country probably 2,000,000 ounces of silver bullion at various points. 'I lie only large supply of silver is said to be in Monterey, Mexico, whereabont 2,000,000 ounces is held in the shape of lead ore, pending certain railroad construction. Mexico produces annually about 40,000, 000 ounces of silver, of which about 25,000,. 000 ounces are coined. The rest is shipped to China and Japqn, via San Francisco. The production of the waite metal from sources other than those named is inconsiderable. This morning Rupee paper was active and stronger in London. This is owing to' the passa e of a bill in the lower house of the Spanish courtes, giving the bank of Spain power to increase its note issue based on silver. A bill has also been int oduced into the Portuguese cortes favoring the adoption of bi-imetallism. These are straws showing the tendency of the wind. A letter from a leading French financier, recently received in this country, said: "The lassage of a free coinage bill by the United States con ress would pot silver at59pence in London, over 1223 per ounce in New York. Up toi875 France fought single handed for bi-metal lIom. She would certainly resume it if the United States should adopt free coinace. England will not follow as long as Goschen is in power, and Gladetone is also a gold bho, but there is a growing sentiment in favor of silver in England and this must tell in the end. The United States made ii mistakein adopting the limited silver act. They should have either passed an un limited coinuae or none at all." It is said this second pool has been a pur chaser of silver on the grounds enumerated above, and on those presented in an article of June 6. which were the basis of the oper ations of the former pool. It would seem that one or the other of the great parties will adopt a free coinage position. At any rate, the growing lower of the farmer will demand such legislation, and Eurepean speculators are alert to make use of the ef fects of this agitation. Silver bullion touched $1 per ounce to-day for the first time since Feb. 14. EATING BEFORE SLEEPING. The Supply of Nourishment Should Be Somewhat Continuous. Some persons, though not actually sick, keep below par in strength and general tone, and I am of the opinion that fasting during the long interval between supper and breakfast, and especially the complete emptiness of the stomach during sleep, adds greatly to the amount of emaciation, sleeplessness and general weakness we so often meet. Physiology teaches that in the body there is a perpetual disintegra tion of tissue, sleeping or waking; it is therefore logical to believe that the supply of nourishment should be somewhat continuous. As bodily exercise is suspend ed during sleep, with wear and tear corre spondingly diminished, while digestion, assimilation and nutritive activity continue as usual. the food furnished during this period adds edore than is destroyed, and increased weight and improved general vigor are the result. All beings except man are governed by natural instinct, and every being with a stomach, except man, eats before sleep, and even the human infant, guided by the same instinct, duinks frequently day and night, and if its stomach is empty for any prolongel period it cries long and loud. Digestion roqaures no interval of rest, and if the amount of food during the twenty four hours is, in quantity and quality, not beyond the physiological limit, it makes no hurtful difference to the stomach how few or how short are the intervals between eat ing, but it does make a vast difference in the weak and emaciated one's welfare to have a modicum of food in the stomach during the tone of sleep1, that, instead of being consumed by bodily a eion, it may during the interval improve the lowered system. I ouo fully satisliald that were the weakly, th l eimaciatted, and the sleepless to nightly take a light lunch or meal of simple, untri tions food before going to bod for a pro lon;ed period,. nine in ten of them would he thereby lifted into a better standard of health; on the crnt, try, puriona that ,ire toi stout o: plothim ic should follow an op posite course.--New York Medical Journal.

A SUCCESSFUL MEETINCG The Dawson County Fair and Sales Association May Now Be Congratulated. Three Days of Excellent Sport and a Financial Success Are Scored. Horsemen Much Pleased With Their Treatment By the Association The Spakane Tournament, GcOeNDVE, June 1.- [Special.1 -The first meeting of the Dawson County Fair and Sales association was a de cided eudeess. The gate and grand stand receipts, bar and lunch coun ter privileges paid the expenses. At this writing it is impossible to give an accurate idea of what the commission on tho pools will be. Over $12,000 were in the boxes. The horsemen who had entries are pleased with the kind treatment they received. The purses were paid after each race on receipt of the judges certificate. Good order pre vailed the three days of the meeting. The sheriff and his deputies did not have one disorderly person to take care of. All the horsemen who attended this meeting have declared they will attend all future meetings of this association. To-morrow there will be a special pacing race between Jim W. owned by T. E. Plummer, and Gov. Toole, of Helena, besides several running races. Eastern Montana was well represented at this meeting. The third day's races opened with better weather than on either the first or the sec ond day of the meeting. The attendance was over 700. A heavy shower which lasted for an hour last evening threatened to spoil to-day's races, but the track was in better condition than ever. The first race was called at two o'clock sharp. Trotting, free for all, purse $000; four entries-Lady Maxim Florida, Vera. and Nightshade. Vera won first, second and fifth heats. Lady Maxim won third heat and made the fourth a dead beat with Vera.

Judge Harcourt called the riders up and in formed them he would start and give them distance. They succeeded in cetting a start with Ekalaka forty feet in the rear. At the first hurdle Sailor balked and jumped on the hurdle and threw his rider. Sydney Padget, who immediately remounted, bIt was nowhere in the race. Sailor also knocked the second hurdle down after the others had passed it, and on thie home stretch Hallie end Ekalaka did not jump the last hurdle, only half of which was in place. Monte passed under the wire twenty feet ahead of Ekalaka, but owing to the conditions of starting the race was given to Ekalaka. Starters In the Derby.

New YoaR, June 19.-Jim Wakeley was to have met in conference with Slavin and Mitchell to-night to make arrangements for a meeting between Sullivan and Slavin, but didn't show up, so the case was left in this critical position. The Australian is waiting to sail for England to-morrow unless arrange ments for the great fight are made. Slavin boxed three rounds with Charley Mitchell at Niblo's, to-night. He made a speech in which he said: "I will postpone my trip to England if a match is made with Sullivan for $10,000 and the higgest purse they can raise. I will most him with or without gloves to demonstrate who is champion of the world. They would go and see Sullivan in Australiaand be would be received much better-in fact, like a lion-if be can make a match to fight me there." John L. Means Business.

THE TELEGRAPHERS. Railway and :ommerscial Operators Do Not Agree. ST. Louis, June 19.-The grand division of the order of railway telegraphers has de cided to purchase outright the organ of the order of railway telegraphers. It is now stated that the railway telegraphers and brotherhood have struck a tnag in their negotiations looking to amalgamation. The hitch, it is said, was caused by a clause in the law of the railway people which pro vides that an operator must have done rail road telegraphing three years before he can become a nienuber. The brotherhood people are sticking out for a one-year quali fication. They say the three-year limit would bar out fully 30 per cent. of the com mercial operators. 'This morning the judi ciary committee of the order of railway telegraphers and officers of the brotherhood of telegraphers met. The judiciary com mittee reported that the grand division re fused to reduce the time of eligibility claure in their law, whereupon the brother hood oflicers called all negotiations off. The order of railway telegraphers will ap ply for membership to the federation of railway employes. It has been said that assurance has been given the brotherhood people by members of the council that neither organization will be admitted until amalgamation is reached. The railway telegraphers el cted officers for the ensuing year as follows: A. D. Thurston, Vinton, Iowa, grand chief tele grapher; S. O. Fox, of Vinton. gland see e tary and treasurer; G. D. Ramsey, of East St. Louis, essistant grand chief telegrApher; L. E. Canda, of Mexico, grand senior tele grapher. One Section Mission. Srimoeitnov, Ill., June 19.-Friends of secret ballot will be greatly chagrinned to learn that the ballot reform bill passed by the last assembly, as signed by the gov ernor, shows a gross error on the part of sonm one.

It cannot now be told whether the fault lies with the enrolling and engroasing clerks or with the clerk of the house. There is a differenoi of opinion hera as to whether this omission invali lates the remainder of the `sill or not, but in any event there are now no means of rectifying the error.
