BY BANDS Oa STIEEL. "I will urge our people to visit Helena," is the way a message received yesterday by President Donald Brad ford, of the Commercial club, reads. It was from the editor of the Omaha Boo and was in reply to an invitation sent by Mayor Kleinschmidt and Mr. Bradford, on behalf of the city and the club, to the business men of Oinahn. For a year or more the matter of the extension of the Burlington system to Montana has been a leading topic in Helena, and now that the people of Omaha are awake to the possibilities of the situna tion there is every reason to believe that such an impetus will be given the project that the road will not stop in Wyoming, but be pushed across the line and on to Helena. If the Omaha business men will for ward the project in the way the Helena men have, their work cannot but count. Something like a year ago there was in corporated under the state laws a com pany known as the Montana & Wyom ing Eastern railroad. Surveyors were put in the tield and have been working ever since. As a result a railroad route from Helena to within a few miles of Billings has been surveyed, and the general land oftice has ac cepted all the maps of definite location already filed, save the last eighty miles, which are now on their way to Commissioner Carter. It is no secret that the Montana & Wyoming Eastern is a child of the Burlington, and the Montana incorporators have ac knowledged that such is the case. This line is designed to run as far east and south as Belle Fourche, Wyoming. Now, as to the main line of the Bur lington. Four hundred men and teams are at work on the Wyoming extension night and day, and by August 1st it will be completed to Belle Fourche, ready to turn over to the operating department. This terminus is but a few miles south of the Montana line, and by the time the road is completed to that point the sur veyors now in Montana will have crossed the border. If the people of Omaha and Nebraska want to avail themselves of the trade of Montana within the next year, they can undoubtedly make such representations to the Burlington man agement, and give guarantees of so f a vorable a nature that, backed by the men of Montana, they will accomplish their object. In any event, we want to become bet ter acquainted with our southeastern neighbors, and whenever they may de cide to visit the mountain state, they will be received cordially, given the best we have, and the interchange will ben efit both the visited and the visitor. MONTANA'S EXHIBIT. The first week of August will soon be nero, and our state commissioners will I meet to consider the highly important questions that attach to Montana's ex- I hibit at the great Columbiian exposition of 1893. It is almost imunpossible to over- I rate the value of their work to this state if they enter upon it vigorously and thoughtfully. Under wise control, we shall have such an opportunity of re vealing to an open-eyed world the in mensity and grandeur of Montana's I resources as may not rlcur for years to t come. All paper advertisemlents and I verbal reouiumendations sink into paltry insignitienbcie when compared witl lhe possibilities that the exposition should afford its. In the mighty sisterhod of the union our onaiinza slate ii pr' tically an infant in arms. l:t weo were born with our evy teeth cut. Last year Montana led every other state in the i union in the total yioll of precious metals and lead. This year we shall handsonmely boat our own record in mineral pIrolduction. A onrse-rvative rs timate ,f our quartz product ion for this year places its value at SI . il'O,,(,.L aso placer ntiuuig shoull yiell at least 1,000,XX000 more. It is a repetition of I he old story of a famous horse, race. Mon tana lirst, and the rest-nowhLer. Add to this the value of the products of our pastures, fiells and forests, and Mlon tana'sshowing shoull I ie. ha llpiy Ii make the heart, of the lMontanianu beat with pride and pleisure, as hu realizes the greatnes of his homie. VWe lielb v that tihe comlsl iisioners will appIlro i ch the ttisk they have unI, rtiakern wit I a sense of its grilatnles andl their own re sponsiliility. If the state applropriatiui should seem to tishem to he inadequate for a suitable replresentation of what Montana is doing and (ran it), it is for thema to, Ceusihdlr the aidvisaaility of sup pleniaiiting it by l]oc:al ;ind private en terlrise. Otheir states haeii inaugurated the idea, and we shouill follow, if need lie. I'arailuony anid ctlesote- puing woiuld be a fatal miistake. We must be in the foro-front. We have a good thing, and we want capitalists to know it andl Uisi their knowledge. For population as population we have comparatively little use. In the search for mineral wealth the surface of this great state of ours has sinmply been scratched. It is true that the returns have been wonderfully rich and profitable, but Montana has a hundred undiscovered bonanzas for every one that has mald her famous. What our comparatively limited re sources have enabled us to do, Chioagc will show to the peoples of the earth They are not likely to throw away thei opportunities. Much of the success of the commis sioners' efforts will depend on their choice of a secretary. We have no ax tc grind and no names to suggest. But the individual chosen should possoes certain qualifications to fit him for hit position. le should be a man thor oughly acquainted with the resources and the needs of the state. Executive and administrative abilities should be his in a rare degree, for on his shoul tiers will practically rest the ultimate success of our exhibit. We ought, in fact, to have the best man available, and all other considerations, social or politi cal, should go to the wall. 'TIHER. is this vital difference between a tariff on wheat and a tariff on wool, in its relation to the farmers of the United States: In 1890 they had to find ia for eign market for 1.),430,4l7 bushels of wheat, as they raised that much more than enough to supply the home mar ket. During the same year American manufacturers were forced to buy in foreign markets 102,918,701 pounds of wool, that amount having been imported through the these principal eastern ports of the country. This wool was very largely made into blankets and clothing for farmers and laborers work ing for small salaries. The farmer sold his surplus, 28.2 per cent. of his total crop, in competition with the product of Russia, India, and other countries where the farmers are in a condition of practical or actual slavery. The tariff on w'heat keeps no product out of our market, for we more than supply it our selves. But it does keep the Canadian product from being carried over our Imnes of transportation and shipped from our ports, thereby decreasing by some millions the annual earnings of our rail ways, and the consequent scaling down of their operating forces. On the other hand, the manufacturer who makes blankets and woolen cloth ing must pay more for his raw material and consequently must charge more for his finished product, which addi tional cost in turn is a burden on the consumer. These facts are perfectly well known to the free trade democrat who writes protection republican non sense in the Journal. TiIs Butte Miner says of the renewed rumors that the Anaconda mines are to be soon reopened: "The Miner has rea son to believe that the shut-down will come to an end in the near future, but as to August 1 being the date upon which the men will be permitted to re turn to work, there is no definite or re liable information. Certain it is that all signs point to a resumption. The ho tel at Anaconda, which, it was reported, would be closed is still open; evidences of friendly relations between the rail road and the Anaconda company are not wanting; the pumps in the mines are at work; encouraging reports come from the east and, unless all signs fail, 'the hill' will soon take on its wonted air of activity and prosperity." Which is good news not to Butte alone, but to all the state. And in this connection we bog to call the attention of the esteemed Inter-Mountain to a few words in the excerpt: "Evidences of friendly rela tions between the railroad and the An aconda company are not wanting." Will the esteemed Inter Mountain now cease its jealous, petty warfare on the North ern Pacific railroad company, from which its proprietors have no advan tageous concession as real estate agents? We have greater hope than expectation that it will. TuIt INoir:NPEND'Nar heartily endorses the action of the Butte Miner in most vigorously tlagollating the Daily Russell Harrison for its uncalled for and wanton aspersions on the judiciary of Silver BIow county and 1110 people of Butte. The people of this city fooeel and know that the citizens of the greatest camp are as prone to do jlustice as those of any other community, and wholesale, indiscriminate libel on the institutions and people of the county and city are deprecated here. Individual interests may clash, and then may the best man win, but for all that no good citizen of Helena should indulge in petty flings against the people, or contemptuous al lusion to the institutilons, of ]iuttc.

This was the thoighlt that ctlanlo Int imy mind Monday night as I sat in tlie opera house listening to the lecture. lin front of ite slit a very good nlatured appeat ing gentleman. 11t looked to be a lan of the w-orld, one who hias seeuin anid tested life int all its ihauas. The unties of the little adjutant were it contant source of amuse ment to him, but not one word of contempt for the Salvation Army and its followers did I hear from his lips. After some touch ing remark by Mrs. Booth I saw him slyly wipe the corner of his eve. When the hat was passed for those who desired to con tribute a small sum for the fund to aid the women who work in the slums thrice did he contribute, once a dollar and then two fives. His sparkling eyes demonstrated more plainly than words could that "'Tis better to give than to receive." "The Gossiper will never get used to the New York practice of allowing unfortunate people to starve to death. Nell Nelson, a New York newspaper woman, tells a pitiful story to-day of a case that came under her notice while working in conjunction with the free doctor's fund, A little baby died, solely from want of nourishment, and but for the noble ministrations of one of those angels of meroy, a Slum Sister, it would have been unattended in its last hours. An ounce of milk is a bounteous meal for a baby, and milk costs but eight cents a quart, and yet, before the Salvation army sister found the little one, poverty had for bidden any nourishment of any kind. T'he devil is going to get somebody for the suf fering that is going on under our very noses here in Gotham." Coming down Broadway Tuesday morn ing, hurrying to umy work, I passed a lady prettily dressed and sensible appearing (I do not mean to imply by that that I sel dom meet sensible woman). As I passed her I noticed no one with her, but as soon as I got by I heard her saR, "Come, Baby." I turned to see where the child could be, and instead of a pretty baby following, holding on to its mother's dress, I discov ered that the endearing term was applied to the scrubbiest looking little dog it has been my lot for some time to behold. A blue ribbon was about its neck, but the bell was wanting. 1 turned around completely disgusted with the shallowness of some of my sex. There is an adage that runs thus, "To be come healthy, wealthy and wise, never get drunk and advertise." Posted uo on a side street I observed the following sign that struck me as being somewhat novel, "Wood cutting by Prof. Nappy." The professor has evidently shaken from his feet the dust of Harvard or Yale. "No one to love, none to caress." Prop ped up against a high board fence, evident ly trying to draw sustenance from the ad vertisement, "Use Johnson's Condition Powders" painted thereon, was a most for lorn, long-eared, raw boned, disconsolate mule. His years of usefulness andibeauty were passed and by a heartless humanity he was turned to die. One of the progressive American youths living in the eastern portion of this city, and whose years do not exceed five very much, astonished his grandmother, who re turning from down street said to the little fellow: "What do .yo suppose I saw down town? I saw a dirty little fellow about your age with a vile cigarette in his month puffing away at it as though he enjoyed it." Instead of exclaiming at the enormity of the offense the small boy said to his grand mother: "Why didn't you take it out of his mouth and give him a nice cigar?" What a chance one has to study humani ty while waiting in a depot. The other day while occupying one of the undesirable seats in the waiting room of one of our depots, waiting with a friend who was to take the west bound train, I had an admira ble chance to watch those about me and take mental notes. One person in particu lar excited my curiosity. Her dress was somewhat striking, being of the mother hubbard pattern, a startling combination of blue serge and brown plush. She carried a basket and ever and anon I noticed her poke something within it w'eh her parasol. Finally I saw the head of a kitten peer from its depths. The friend who left on the same train as did the cat and its mistress wrote back that the basket holding the kitten also contained her lunch, and that while she was eating the cat would play fully nose over the eatables. Another lady walked into the depot, while behind her came the hack driver carrying a bird cage as large as a good sized Noah's ark, within which, perched on rings, swings and rode were seven canary birds of differ ent shades of yellow. An agonized expres sion came over the face of the conductor as he beheld them, but conductors must al ways look pleasant and so he smiled. The birds started a tune on the key of upper G, at which even the cat in the basket became excited. The last I saw of the lady she was oco.pying three seats in the coach and every now and then would feed her pets with crackers. My sympathies went out to those good people whom she and her birds were going to visit. A little boy called at our house a short time ago, and as I have a profound admira tion for that most original and naive of all God's creatures, the small boy, I engaged him in conversation. After talking on a variety of subjects he finally burst out with, "Have you any little boys?" I was forced to say "no." With a pitying look in his eyes he propounded the questiion, "Can't you get some from heaven?" With ditliculty I suppressed a smile and answered that i feared not. "I am not particularly vain," said a New York belle the other day, "but when I leave the average dressmaker I amn a nero ajiect smudge of myself. I know miany a wo.san will lft up her voice with me over the way we are treated by the average dressmaker. We rotest faintly about a wrinkle around the shoulder.
