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:
NAME AND L. D. Rate lgnat'r,
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.

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. 'there is some talk of putting a
clause in the proposals and contract by
which the minimum scale of wages will be

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.

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

Montana Scenery.
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.

John W. Plummer Asks Damages
From the Granite Mountain
Mining Company.
Charges Were Made Against Him
by the Direotors About
a Contract.
Seldeman Is Boleased FIrom lHs Bond to
Support the Child-lt Is
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
