THE BETTER fOR HELENA,
Butte Raoes Settled Nothing as tQ the Superiority of Any Horse. A OCalifornia Xorseman Tihinking of Wintering Ris Horses in Helena. The Pacer Mikado Chanres Hands at sa.OOO-Florlda In Great Shape Aleok Lewis Hart. The races at Butte closed yesterday. Al though it is hardly fair to say they were up to the bright expectations formed last spring, yet taking everything into consid eration the meeting was fairly nuccessful and passed off smoothly. Huank Valiton officiated in the judge'sstand and gave gen eral satisfaction. The racing was good and the contests exciting, but so far as deter mining the superiority of one horse over another the public is as much in the dark as ever. This condition of things promises well for Helena. The winners at Butte are not liable to be winners at Helena. A large number of the horses as Butte did not par tieipate in the races there at all. A major ity of them proceed to Great Falls to take part in the meeting there on August 17 to 19 incluslve. Those which do not go to the Falls come direct to Helena. The trotting horses at Butte were not all in the best con dition, owing to the smoke and the sudden climatie changes. Silver Bow, Condee and Katie S. were noticeably not in racing con dition. These horses coming direct to Helena and having a two weeks' rest will be in better shape to make some interesting races. Matt Storm, the well known San Fran cisoo horseman, who is taking in the Mon tana cilrcuit with a stable of seven runners, has expressed himself as much pleased with the state. This is his first trip here. He is thinking seriouslyof wintering with his sta ble in Helena, believing that horses raised or allowed to run in Montana acquire an en Iarged lung capncity, so that they travel quieker on the seaboard. He says he has noticed that whenever Montana horses go either to the east or the west they have im proved their records. Montana breeders of thoroughbreds freely admit that their Montana colts can not compete with those coming in from California,. The California colts are dropped earlier than those in Montana. and a two-year-old Californian is generally are large as a three-year-old Montanian. Knowing ones predict that Centella and Top Gallant will have a walk over in the two-year-old Pioneer stake race, and that Malcolm Terry and Mystery will have things all their own way in the Derby. Hundley & Clark have sold the pacer Mikade to George Huffaker for $2,000. Mi kado is a green one without a record, but can go in 2:20. He was withdrawn from the pacing race in Butte, but will start in the 2:22 class in Helena. The purchase was made with the view of oampaigning through the grand circuit, and Mikado is entered in all the principal events there. Florida is in such good shape that she is expected to run away from everything in the 2:27 olass, where her contestants will be Robbins. Ben Cole, Cottonwood Chief, Lady Maxim, Ilton and G. G. B. In the 2:24 class, however, slte will have some work to do, as Hylas Boy, Silver Bow and Contractor will be among those close to the wire when the race is over. Alexander Lewis, owner of Contractor, was tnroian irom the sulty at bitte while exercising his htrse, and had his shoulder dislocated. For this reason Contractor did not start in the 2:24 class last Wednesday. Hugh Kirkendall has bought the runner Bonneville from Stofford & Crawford for $200. The animal was always shy with the iormer owncrs, but is said to be working nicely in the Kirkendall stable. Mothers!

The Most Popular Place to Dine in the Capital City. It is not difficult for the patrons of the Helena Cafe to explain its popularity. though those who have never dined there may think it strange. To these latter it may be said that the Helena Cafe, under the management of Erhardt & Burger, has never yet failed to fill an order for any thing, whether fruit, meat, fish, game, veg etables, or the hundreds of other things de manded in a first-class restaurant, if the article desired could be obtained in the Helena market. Not only this, but its pat one know they buy only the best goods, the food is prepared by first-class cooks, while the service leaves nothino to be de nired. The regular dinners have become the criterion for other establishments, and nowhere is a better cooked, or more varied meal served for the money or even for double the price. 'Lhe Sunday dinners are especially tine, and to-day all previous efforts will be outdone and old friends and new ones will be given the best in the mar ket for 50 cents. From four to eight is the time and no one will have cause for regret if they avail themselves of the opportunity. Ldies' fast black seamless hose only 20e at The Bee lHive.

Many ladies who dress well, in fact exer cise the very best taste in all the require ments of gond form in dress, neglect one essential article-an article of decided im portance, an aitiele that is the all in all, finish of a corresponding and harmonious costume.

About seventy-five Helena gentlemen yes teeday availed themselves of the tnvita tiq* of Was. larrison to visit the iaxen dale quarries, about ten miles from Helena, f.!etBM aotor to the Broadwater, and thence by the Northern Paoll to the quar ries, was the route. Once on the ground, the visitors realized that the infant indus try had in three years grown to be a big en trprise, employing sixty men, and the product not only going into hadosome structures all over Montana, but helping alro to beautify Spoane, Seattle and other sound cities. Excepting Denver, the quar rles at Baxendale employ more men than similar enterprise between Minnesota and California. The plant it a most complete one, the granite being not only quarried, but finished on the ground ready to be placed in the building. An illustration of the capacity of the hoist was furnished the visitors in raising a block weighing 15,000 pounds. The Inrcest stone yet quari led weighed over 16,000 pounds. Nine cars of granite are shipped each week. Facilities for the rapid an soonomical handling of the material ate excellent. All the hoists being operated by steam, while the railroad tracks ron un der each of them. About two hours and a half were very pleasantly spent by the visi tors in inspecting the works and the big hotel run by Mr. Harrison for the accom modation of the employee, and partaking of a Montana lunch. Promptly at six o'clock the party returned to Helena, fully impressed with the importance of the re sults accomplished by Mr. Harrison in three years, Fifty-srlx iese decorated tea set at The Bee Hive oniv $5.

Taxes on Foreign Mortgages are Probably Unoolleotible, a Further Reduotion. County Commissloners are to Bie In iee eins Again To-morrow to Fix the Levy. The county board of equalization after a session of thirteen days has adjourned. It considered about 200 petitions, refused about 50, and acted upon about I.00, result tag in a reduction on town lots of $670,480; improvements on town lots, $1150,9ir0; on land outside of city limits, 1907,480: inm provements on lands, $209,02: merchandise, $181,820, furniture, $20,000; mortgages, $58,440; other property, $302,542. Home of the reductions made are: Clarke, Conrad & Curtin, merchandise, reduced from $40, 000 to $20,000; syndicate, Bradford, Ames, Brooke, Bellevue and Wallace additions are reduced to $6 and $8 per front foot; C. W. Uannon, on real estate, $152,180; Northern Pacific Railroad company, on 73.000 acres of mountain land, reduced from $1.25 to 25 cents per acre; C. A. Broadwater, re duced on town lots $75,000, and on other property $24,000; Richard Loekey, reduced about $60,000 on real estate; Greenhood, Bohm & Co., merchandise reduced from $60,000 to $40,000; Gans & Klein, merchandise reduced from $00,000 to $42,000. The total asesesment was in round flcures $32,000,000 and it has been cut down to about $30,000, 000. Foreign mortgages have been assessed at about $2,000,000 but this amount is prob ably uncollectable. The county commissioners will be in ses sion again at 10 a. m. to-morrow, but not as a board of equalization. Last Wednes day the board of equalization adjourned which was the last day allowed by law for taxpayers to make their applications for corrections. When they meet to-morrow it is for the purpose of fixing the county levy and no applications will be received for re ductions of assessments. The county clerk's office will be a busy place for several weeks. Besides attending to the regular volume of business the clerks have a larae task on their hands in prepar ing the assessment books. There are now four clerks in the office and one more will be added to the force in order to complete the work on time, for County Clerk Tooker. is liable to a fine of $500 if he does not get the books ready on or before the flast Mon day in October. The first thing he is re quired to do is to prepare duplicate state ments for the use of the state board of equalization and the state auditor showing: The total value of property; the value of real estate, including mining claims, stated separately; the value of the improvements thereon; the value of personal proper tv, ex clusive of money; the amount of money; the number of acres of land and the num ber of mining claims, stqted separately. As soon as the county clerk receives from the state board of equalization a statement of the changes made by the board in the assessment took of the county, or in any assessment, he makes the corresponding changes in the assessment. On or before the first Monday in October the county clerk delivers a copy of the corrected assess ment book to the county treasurer. Within ten days after receiving the book the county treasurer is required to mail to each tax payer a notice showing the amount of taxes due, and that unless paid on or before Dec. 1 they become delinquent and 10 per cent will be added.

Bros.' half price sale. A Half-prier Sale of Winter Garments. On to-morrow (Aug. 10) Sands Bros. will place on sale more than 100 winter garments, which were carried over from last season. The lot consistsof ladies', misses' and child ren's newmarkets and dolmans, and to close out the entire collection at once, Sauds Bros. have marked them at about half cost. or in other words, at loess than the cost of the materials used. To say that the sale presents the opportunity of the season, is stating it very mild, when you consider we are on the eve, almost, of the fall season, and here you can buy attractive and desir able garments for your children, or for yourself at far less than you can purchase the materials. The ladies' garments com prise newmarkets and dolmans of plush. beaver, cheviot, diagonals and English cords. The children's and misses' acr ments are principally newmarkets of beaver, fancy cloths, plaids, stripes and cheviots. Sizes of ladies' garments are from thirty four to forty-two inches, and of children's four to eighteen years. 'The assortment ranges in price from $6 to $50, but these prices are now out in half, so that for $6 garments you now pay $8; for $10 garments you now pay $5; for $20 gar ments you now pay $10, and so on through. out the collection. This is not a sale of old or shop.worn goods, but a bona fide reduction of choice and desirable garments which it is impera tive to close out before the arrival of fall and winter goods. Mothers who intend purchasing winter garments for their daughters will be pleased with the advantages offered to secure a handsome garment at a fraction of cost.
