A GOLD_ MINE ON EVErRY LOT.
Recent Developments in the KENWOOD district, comprising the Bradford, Brooke and Syndicate Additions to Helena, make the above statement almost absolutely true. But there are other features of this part of Helena that out weigh the probability of finding gold in paying quantities, and those are the freedom from smoke and dust that Enjoys beyond any other suburb. the direct water service, insur ing purity and freshness, the fine view, the rich soil, school facil ities, street car service, good drives and numerous other advantages.

England's Chief Justice Decides a Case in Which All Woman. kind Is Interested. Coleridge Says a Husband Has Not Dominion Over His Wife's Person. If a Man Does Not Possess His Wife's Af fection He Cannot Hold Her Person -An Indiana Case. Chief Justice Coleridge, of England, de cided in a recent case-the "Clitheroe case" -that the marriage relationship did not give the husband the right of dominion over the wife's person, says the Salt Lake Tribune. In other words, that the "lord of creation" had no right to regard his wife as a mere chattel, or as a piece of property to deal with as he thought proper. No matter how solemn the obligation which the wife may have assumed, her own person was her own property, the title to which was vested in her exclusively, and no marriage cere mony constituted a cloud upon that title. The peculiar case which called forth this decision was that of a man kidnapping his wife and taking her to his home against her will. They had been married in London some three years before, and shortly after the marriage the husband left for New Zealand to seek his fortune there. A few months ago he re turned to London to find that his wife's affections in the meantime had been trans ferred to another, proving that it is some times unsafe to bank too much upon the prospect of success when the ore body is not always in sight, in love matters as well as in mining. On his return his wife roe fused to live with him. This was too much for him. During his years of exile in New Zealand the one thought buoyed him up and stimulated him to greater endeavor, that on his return the blessed and happy reunion would in a measure repay him for his forced absence. He soon found, how ever, that he had been living on a false hope-that his guiding star, which he fondly believed was shining over him, was shining for some one else. But though his wife's affections were gone, though he could not take possession of them, he could take possession of her per son, which he did by a piece of strategy, and took her to his home and kept her there a prisoner. It was against this pro ceeding that the chief justice entered his decision as above. The case is an unique one; but after all the decision is perfectly logical. If a wife refuses to have anything to do with the msan she has promised to "love and obey," why then the ousnaqunaces should rest with herself, and, outside of the foolish ness of a man trying to take forcible pos session of a woman whose affections and whose will are entirely at enmity with his own, the marriage vows did not include the enslavement of her person. A case somewhat similar to the above was telegraphed the other day from Indiana. A man and woman were married clandestinely by a Catholio priest several months ago. 'he man took his bride to his home, which was mi sight of the h.ns of the bride's fa ther. The bride's father, Callendor by name, Ieoaoae enraged at the marriage, took legal steps to show that his daughter was taken away against her will, seaured possession of her person and took her back to his home. A few days ago the biidegroom, Patrick ityan, with another man, entered the house of Callender when the latter was atsent, took forcible possen sion of the bride and carried her away to sis house. The old man again appealed to the law, but this time was nnsuccess ful, leaving Pat in possession of the 'property." In this case, however, the wlres fail to gives the most pertinent detail in regard to the camo, that is, whether or not the bride testilled in court that she pre ferred to live with her husband. In that event, of course, it was not a decision in favor of the right of a hnuband to the pos session of the person of his wife by virtue of any marriage vows. If, however, as bar father alleges, she weeas taken from under the parentcl roof against her will, it estab lishes a conflict between the Enelish court and the Indiana court. But it can scarcely be credited that an American judge would render a decision which would be tanta mount to a declaration that the liege lord had the right at his pleasure to refer to his "better half" in this way: "She is my horse, my cow, my ass, my anything." MONACO. Soon the Great Gambling House Will Shut Up. Ten months hence, namely, on the 16th of April, 1892, the great gambling estab lishmt at Monaco will close its doors for ever. On that day the agreement between the government of the prncipaiity and the world-famed hell of Monte Carlo expires, and there is not tne remotest chance of its being renewed. It was the knowledge of the present ruler's determined attitude in the matter which has alone prevented the .French government from availing itself of its position as suzerain power to take im mediate stees toward the suppression of this plague-spot of Eu'ope-steps which both President Gravy and President Car not have repeatedly been urged to adopt, not only by popular sentiment, but also by nearly every one of the great monarchies of the old world. Rtusasi, Germany, Italy and Great Britain have been particularly pressing in their applica tions to the Paris government to put a stop to the scanndal; and it may safely be averred that Queen Victoria would never have con descended to pay such marked and graoious attention during her recent stayr at Grasse to the prince and princess of Mlonsoo had she not received satisfactory assuranaes concerning the approoching close of the gamblin palanee at Monte Carlo. On the ocaosion of her former stays in the south of France the strict and stern old lady had indignantly refulsed the bouquets and baskets of flowers sent to her by the late Prince Charles 11., whereas this spring she not only received the reigning prince and princess at Graese with all the honors due to sovereigns, but even went so far as to scnd, first, her ambassa dor, the Earl Lytton, and a day later her daughter, Princess tBeatrice, with Prince Battenberg, to return the visit at Monte Carlo. Prince Albert, whose marriage a couple of years ago with the enormously wealthy widow, the Duohesse de Richelieu, a daugh ter of the New Orleans and Parisian banker Heine, has enabled him to dispense with the $600,000 annually contributed toward the civil list of the sovereign of Mounaco by the management of the Monte Carlo casino, has already notified the latter that he hars no intention of renewing the lease, and accordingly M. llanoc, and his two brothers-ln-law. "Prine" Roland Bonn parte antd Prince Constantine Ial zivoile, who are the principal shareholders of the Casino company. tarv already perfecoted their arrangements for the tralsfer of their operations to Andorra, the little Pl'reunean republic on the 'ranco Spanish frontier line. tInder their ao spices a company entitled Carole des El rangers d'Andorra (the Ftraurgers Club of Andorra) has been snocessfully floated at Paris, and no less than 40,ti)0 $100 shares have already been disposed of at a heavy premium. All the plauns for the new build ings at Andorra have been perfected, and to those who are acquainted with the Freonh Riviera it may be of interest to learn that the new theater designed for An dorra is an exact reprodootion of the thea tar on the jetty promenade at Nice. It was not until after muuch hesitation that the syndicate owning the Monte Carlo Casino concession decided upon Andorra as the scene of their future operations. T'h'y had previously endeavored to secure an abiding place for their roulette, their trente-et-quarante. and their rouge-et-noir tables in several other -arts of Europe-in cluding ValduA, the capital of the little principality of Liechtenstein; San Marino the tiny republic in northern Italy at Saxons-les-Bains: at Aix-les-Bains and even at Belgrade and Sofia. Every where, however, their overtures were re jected, and after aiscus'ing the rival merits of Tangier and Andorra, they finally de cided in favor of the latter. Andorra has been an independent repub lie sinoe the days of Charlemagne, who, in the year 778, confirmed the rights, privi lgsee and freedom of "the valleys and soyereignties of Andorra." The territory comprises about 160 square miles and the population numbers about 6,000. It is gov erned by a council of twenty-four members, elected for four years by four heads of families in each parish, The council elect a first and second syndic, or mayor, to preside and to wield the execu tive power. The costume of these two dig nitaries is of a character to strike awe into the hearts of those who may eventually visit the little republic for the purnose of trying their luck at the gambling tables. It is com posed of silver-buckled shoes, blue stock ings, red garters, gray knee-breeches, broad scarlet sash, black cloak, catalan cap, and a gigantio black cooked hat perched on top of the cap. They take their oath of office by laying their left hand on the sacred "Books of the Valley"-the Di. geatium and the Politer-in which the his tory, the traditions, the laws, and the customs of the ancient republic are hope lessly jumbled together. The primitive character of the people may be estimated by the fact that the salary and allowances of the first syndic-the chief magistrate of the republic-amount to the magnificent sam of sixty pesetas, or about $12, per an num.
