THERE IS WORK AHEAD.
What Helena Must DPo to Make Sure of the Teachers Convention Next Year. Barnard Brown Says the Work Must Be Done Thoroughly and Rapidly. eacts 5n Conneectio With the Ielection of Helena-The Part the Railroads Played in It. Within thirty days members of the exec utive committee of the National Teachers' association will be in Helena. While it has been decided that Helena has the first call on the convention for 1892, it is yet in the power of the executive committee to have the convention meet at Saratoga, which is the second choice. The final decision in the matter rests entirely with the people of this oity. Barnard Brown, who was one of the committee appointed by the Board of Trade to secure the convention for Helena in 1892, has returned, and while he is natu rally elated over the victory gained, he wants it distiuctly understood that the fight is not by any means over. All the advantage is now on the side of Helena, still such a presentation must be made to the executive committee as will convince each member that Helena can take care of the association next year. It is Mr. Brown's expectation that but three members of the executive committee will visit Helena next month-President Cook, of New York, Secretary Stevenson, of Kansas, and Treasurer Greenwood, of Missouri. The citizens must be able to prove to these gentlemen that they can take care of the teachers, and to do this an scrlve and close canvass of the city must be made for the purpose of settling just how many people are patriotic enough and generous enough to help in the task of lodging and feeding the visitors. He has already received from a number of gentle men cordial assurances in this direction. Among those who have agreed to entertain all the teachers they possibly can in their homes are W. A. Chessman, 8. T. Hauser, Mayor Kleinschmidt; H. M. Parohen, A. M. Esler, A. M. Holter and A. J. Seligman. The teachers will not accept free accommo dations, but insist on paying for all they get. Mr. Brown's idea is that awideawake committee be appointed, with a responsible head, the latter to have sole charge of the matter, but acting in conjunction with the committee as an advisory board. A sub scription paper should be drawn up and the canvass made as rapidly as possible. his idea of the subscription paper is some thing like this: I horeby agree to provilde for the following number of persons during tie srseion of the teachers' convention in Ielena in 18;r2: I I I I I I NAME AND L. D. Rate lgnat'r, ADDRESS. ier per'n W. St. 4 4 4 4 $1.50J. Smith. That is, John Smith will provide lodging, breakfast, dinner and supper for four peo ple at the rate of $1.50 a day. Some may be able to provide lbdgings only. In that case, the spaces for meals can be left blank. Then when all these lists are hand ed in the person in charge can make a syn opsis, and whatever additional arrange monts may be necessary can be made. In this way something tangible can be pre sented to the executive committee. The same systematic work must be done in the matter of places in which to hold the ses sions. Unless this is done, the convention will go to Saratoga. Talking yesterday of the work done in Toronto Mr. Brown gave some interesting details. True to their promises, the North ern Pacific, Great Northern and Union Pa cific railroads did allthey could to help Hel ena. Mr. Fee, of the first named road, sent as representatives of his line Geo. D. Fuller, district passenger agent at Buffalo, W. E. Belcher and Thos. G. lRidgedale, of Toronto. The Union Pacific was represented by W. S. Condell, general ugent at Boston, and J. D. Tenbroeek, local iRgeut at Albany. Messrs. Whellems and luckins represented the Great Northern. All of these gentlemen pulled together for the Montana city. The Canadian Pacific had a large force on the ground, all working like good fellows for Seattle. For ni while it was a question how to meet this influence, but fortune favored the Montana men. Before leaving Helena Mr. Brown was given by Dr. Treacy letters of intro inotion to two of the latter's cousins who 'esided in Toronto. One of these gentle men, Mr. Robert Nelles, is the local man ager of the Grand Trunk, a road which is 'nther in opposition to the Canadian Pa citir. The other letter was to Richard Har court, treasurer of the province. Each of these gentemen espous'd Helena's cause and did excellent work. When theCanadian Pacific's efforts began to look dangerous Mr. Nelles was appealed to and within twenty-four hours the Grand Trunk had men on the ground from Detroit, New York, Boston and all over that section. "Helena is the place," was their motto, and thus by good luck another strong ally was added to the Montana forces. But it is not to the men alone that credit is due for the victory. The Helena com mittee had two headquarters, one at the Arlington and the other at the Rossin house. 'These were kept open all the time, but of course the lelena men had to be away a large part of the time. While they were absent the Montana ladies kept house and talked Helena in their own persuasive way. The committee had about 5,000 but tons manufactured with the insoriotion "N. E. A., Helena, Montana, 1892." A stock of these was kept at the headquarters and the ladies saw that each visitor when he or she left had one pinned on coat or bodice. When asked about Helena, asto the population on other statistical questions, on which they were not posted they would always have an answer, quoting Mr. Brown or Mr. Lyman as authority. They did lots of good work and it counted. 'hese ladies were Miss Allison, Miss Fullerton, and Miss Schaffer, of Helena, Miss Calkins, of Butte, Miss Stebbine. of Great Falls, Mrs. B. Brown, and her niece, Miss Staois C7 ane. '[he souvenir was admired by thousands of people and was pre'sented to the teachers on l'hursdav. Prof. Yount! made the pre sentation address. The lecture of Prof. Bolton on the night preceding the selection of a meetins pillce,. Irved not only a great drawing card, i.100 or 1.200 teachers attend ing, but also aided materially in deciding the question. Prof. Young and Mr. Miller took hold of their share of the work in dead earnest, and kept it up till the last moment. As a membei r of the council, Prof. Young presented Helena's claims in a very creditabl, way. l'n'o Ialbriggai in ,irwar for f ummer wear, only t1 per rilt,, at ''he Beo Io.

MAIN BTREE.T PAVING.. The Matter Egpeeted to Be Definitely et tied To-ntght. TIe oily eounoil will meet to-night and Mayor Kleuisehmidt is determined to do all in his power td have the Main street paving question disposed of. The committee ap pointed to confer with the city engineer in pufeoting plans are divided on the question of using a two-inch plank as part of the foundation for the blocks to rest on. lome of the committee favor the plank founds tion on account of the evenness it gives the pavement. 'The others and the elty en gineer oppose using the plank, as when the street is torn up for any purpose they claim it cannot be relaid as evenly as the original. If the committee do not reach any conclu sion on that matter by to-night the couneil will be asked to settle it. There is a disposition manifiested to have every thing relating to the pavement disposed of to-night. It will take about an month to advertise and give out the con tract, so that there will be only about two or at the most three months left this year in which work can be done on the pavement. The work will be started at Cutler street, and it is not expected that the pavement will be finished any further than Broadway this year.

Twentieth Annual Tour of Sells Brothers' Enormous United Shows. On Friday, July 24, the famous Bells Brothers will visit Helena with their entire colossal unity of circuses, menagerie, Moor ish caravan and spectacular pilgrimage to Mecca, regal Roman hippodrome, Olympian elevated stages, tropical aquarium, aviary, royal Japanese troupe, Arabian Nights' en tertainment and free street parede. Had not Adam Forepaugh made his final exit from mortality's greet arena, presumably to manage "a galaxy of stars' elsewhere, he would be forced to concede that Bells Brothels now have essentially "the greatest show on earth," and the only legitimate one of its kind left. A menag erie which includes among. many rare wild beasts the only pair of full-grown giant hippopotami, worth $100.000, is some thing to boast of. Other notable exclu sive features are a most singular hairless horse, a whole flock of stately ostriches, and the tiniest pair of cattle ever known veritable mites from elfdom. The pro gramme of hippodrome races and general performances is upon a truly imperial scale, and introduces the greatest drivers, riders and athletes of both sexes, including an as tonishmg troupe of Berber and Bedouin gymnasts. A most decided and fascinating novelty is the introduction of Cyrene, the peerless long-skirt, Spanish dancer, who is the terpsichorean sensation of the era on both sides of the Atlantic. The newly de vised spectacle of the pilgrimage to Mecca will introduce many rich, striking and ro mantic novelties. M-.1 Ara in tahle linn and tnwnla at The Be Hive.

An Old-Time Helena Merchant Preparing to Go Abroad. "I want to get out of the liquor business, and go to Europe with my family," said I. L. Israel, the Main street merchant yester day. "I have been in America twenty-five years and in this business in Helena for twelve, and I am now able to take a rest, and I propose to do it. In addition to this business, I am also largely interested in the clothing trade and other ventures, and I am so tied down that until I dispose of my liquor interests I cannot get away. I am not only going to sell my goods, but like wise my lease and fixtures. I proose, in fact, to get completely out of the liquor business just as soon as I can. I have a very large stock and it may take me a couple of months to sell out, but I am not shipping anything in now, and I guess I can soon sell at the prices I am making. I have several hundred barrels of whisky, 200,000 cigars and an immense stock of wines and other goods. 1 am selling all these goods for less money than they can be obtained in the east, and they are sure to go." While Mr. Israel's determination to re tire from this branch of mercantile busi. ness is a final one, and in a few months the liquor house of I. L. Israel & Co. will be no more, it is gratifying to his friends to know that he will retain his other interests in Helena.

A very attractive painting now adorns the Board of Trade room, in the Power building, where it has been left for public exhibition. The subject is the Rain Bow Falls of the Missouri, and the artist is John Haerst of this city. Competent judges of fine art who have examined it unhestating ly pronounce it the most artistic produc tion of Montana scenery that has yet been depicted on canvas. Mr. Haeret has de voted several months of diligent work to this undertaking, but the result fully justi fles the expenditure it has cost. The can vas is a large one, being nine feet long and five feet wide, and is framed in a style at once novel and effective. The painting represents the falls and their surroundings as they appear in autumn, the neighboring hills and bluffs and the stretch of country in the perspective being clad in the colors of fall. To the left of the falls frowns a precipitous wall, somber and im pressive, and, across the' wide expanse of tihe "mighty Missouri" the waters plunge in foam and vapor, in varied hues of green and white, broken and deflected by project ing rocks and obstructions, and in tihe fore ground are seen hurrying away on their path to the sea. Every feature of the Rain bow Falls is brought out in this filue work and with an absolute artistic faithfulness to detail, and so life-like is the scene that one can almost hear the roar of the water as it plunges and leaps into mist and vapor. Everyone who appreoietes a fine painting should avail himself of the oppom tunity of viewing this noble picture. To those who have visited the Itainbow Falls it will recall the enjoyment of their visit, and those who have not will learn what Montana can afford in the way of beautiful and impress ive scenery.

Charges Were Made Against Him by the Direotors About a Contract. Seldeman Is Boleased FIrom lHs Bond to Support the Child-lt Is Dead. John W. Plummer commenced an action yesterday in the United States circuit court against the Granite Mountain Mining com pany to recover $37,000 with interest. Mr. Plummer was formerly in the employ of the company which owns the famous dividend producing mine at Granite, known as the Granite Mountain. His position was that of superintendent and general manager. In his complaint filed yesterday Mr. Plum roer states that for some length of. time prior to the month of September, 1888, he had been the manager, superintendent and attorney in fact of the company, in which positions he had control of all the business operations of the corporation at Granite, subject to the supervision of the board of directors. During this period A. Warren, Guas Ewing, L. M. ItRmsey and Paul Fun were the directors. As manager Mr. Plum mer, about this time, advertised for bide for a quantity of cordwooI to be used in the operations of the mine. The ueno cessful bidder was John Hall, whose bid was slightly in excess of $7,000. Charges were afterward made that Hall was mn col lusion with Plummer and that he was de livering wood in excess of his contract. The board of directors came from St. Louis, the headquarters of the company, and vis ited Plummer at the mine. Here they had a lengthy interview with Plummer concern ing the charges made. Plummer denied that there was anything wrong in his ad ministration of the affairs of the company. The directors insisted that the contract should be immediately rescinded. Plum mer went to Hall and explained the matter to him, but could not get the contractor to throw up his agreement. The manager then told the directors that it was impossi ble to break the contract but in order to save the company from any loss and to satisfy them that everything was all right he would pay over to the company $30,000. Under this arrangement, Mr. Plummer says, there was to be an investigation of his administra tion, and if everything was found to be cor rect the $30,000 was to be returned to him. He waited some time for the investigation, but none was had, meanwhile .the charge resting upon him, he says, caused him much mortification. Finally he resigned and went to Idaho, where he is now engaged in the mining business. In his complaint he says that he has demanded a return of the money paid to the company, but that it is withheld from him by a vexations delay. He asks judgment for $37,000, with interest from September, 1888. His Bond Released. i. W. Seideman, who was put under $5,000 bonds a few weeks ago to support the child of which he was adjudged to be the father, has been relieved of all further responsibility in the matter. Two days ago the infant died. Seideman appeared in the district court yestesrday and gave security to pay the extenses incurred dur ing the illness of the child, also the ex peonses of the funeral. His former bond was then canceled. Equalization Boerd. The county board of equalization devoted the entire time of their session yesterday to a thorough inspection of the assessment list, going over it name by name. During the day about forty applications were re ceived asking that corrections be made. The board will be in session about six days. Nlw Incorporations.
