WIrTa the cream of Montana journal ism, the warhorse and Bob Ingersoll breathing eloquence at once the people of Butte are quite likely to become sa tiated with culture. Surros. the daily Russell Harrison. keep its hands off the Penrose case and leave the decision to courts and juries. How many lessons are necessary to pound the alphabet of journalism into a dull boy's head? THE journalists of Montana had a good time in Butte and were royally en tertained by the press club of that city. Incidentally we observe that several could not forbear the pleasant tempta tion to whack Helena. UNITED STATES SENATOR WAsI BURNF, Of Minnesota, is positive that Blaino will not refuse the republican pomination in 1892. It is fair to assume, however, that Mr. Blaine himself is not jo positive on this point. THE New York Times says. "For home reason the Montana editors seem to regard the boy Harrison as only a earpet bagger and as pretty near an im iecile at that." The Times is wrong. o)nly the republican editors of Montana have given cause for such a conclu sion. THEu great St. Louis exposition which opened on Wednesday is a model which il fair associations would do well to study. It has brought untold benetits to that city in the extension of its trade as the west and southwest. Helena should have an annual exposition main fained on the same system of manage pent. THE war fever is becoming infectious. Salmaceda's shoulders are hardly on the ground before news comes of an impend hz revolution in Mexico and now come later dispatches announcing a great and threatening movement of European }oops, In this country there is war on the war tariff, but the only dangerous Weapon is the Foraker fire alarm. THE Harrison administration has just negotiated a treaty with San Domingo, b power of the first rate somewhere be tween the two Americas. If a reciproc ity treaty could be made between the united States and her inhabitants there would be less discontent among all classes of laborers and more general prosperity. This will be done shortly after the democratio party returns to power in 1892. IT appears that no local muse can satisfy the lofty poetic yearning of Capt. Robert Browning Fisk. We will try him again: T'was Uncle Iolt, with armor bright, strode forth one summer day, And slew thousands of Missouri born who somehow got away. If this is not satisfactory to the son of Shakespeare we will gladly make cor rections. THE colored people of Texas are hold ing astate convention for the discussion of topics of interest to their race. Among these are, education in the school, industrial education, labor and politiaonl corruption. This is tihe right way to bring about the solution of the so-called negro problem. The negro must advance socially and morally through his own efforts, like his white brother. YouNo JAtl.:s I.

Young Mr. r-lield is eaild to be a bright follow, but something more than brightness and a name is noedted in the republican war in the camp in Ohio this year.

SR.rcE we aire to have rain in Montana whenocver it is needed, all Montanians will be interested in the novel system of weather forecasts proposed.

We call attention to a oondition of affairs in this city that should receive prompt attention from the local author ities. Every night in the week and at all hours young girls ranging from 11 to 10 years are roaming about the streets alone, in pairs, and in company with men of evil designs. Many of these youngsters have good homes and kind parents who are unaware or neglectful of their daughters' surroundings. Oth ere are without home influences, but obliged to work for their living, are sub jected to the same temptations of the street. They may be seen walking about as late as two o'clock in the morn ing, and often in a state of intoxication. n a very brief time their moral sur roundings are such that they are well started on the road to ruin, and then it is almost too late to bring about refor nation. There are lodging houses in this town that fairly swarm with bad vomen who are always ready to use their corrupting influences to induce young girls to follow their lives. These houses are so managed that men may take girls to rooms with no questions asked, and some of these places are owned by very respectable citizens who view matters through the light of the "almighty dollar." There are perhaps no ordinances to break up the lodging house evil, but it occurs to us that the city council and police can work in con cert to the end that these young girls may be kept off the streets after certain hours of night. Of course this is a work that must be carried on with discretion, for indiscriminate arrests might result in defeating the object of the move nent. Careful watchfulness, a kind word of advice or warning on the part of the officers would be all that would be necessary m most cases. This evil has become so alarming in some cities that very stringent measures have been adopted. In Newark, N.J., the chief of police received this letter "from a heart broken mother": "I write these few lines to you to see if you can prevent these young girls, from 12 to 16 years old, running round all hours of the night and morning, coming home drunk and With married men who only bring them to ruin. I am a poor woman with four children to look after. Two of them are daughters whom I cannot manage, They run to these picnics and get in with men who lead them to badness. My youngest daughter, only 15 years old, is in a condi tion which is enough to break my heart. I have another daughter, who I am afraid may turn out the same way unless there is something done to keep the girls out of the streets at night and away from the picnics, where you see young girls with short dresses sitting with men. Many a poor woman is broke up on account of their husbands no ing around with these girls, who entice them from their wives and children. I hope you will look into this for the sake of other mothers and wives and daughters. If you break this up there is many a mother who would thank you for it and oever for get you." There are doubtless some mothers in Helena who feel very much like writing as this poor woman did. We renew our suggestion to the authorities. PROMINENT PEOPLE. Sir Charles Dilke is a broad-shouldered, square-built man, with clear gray eyes and full, grizzled beard. His manner is serious and dignified, and direct almost to abrupt ness. 1Vr. Hamilton Aide, who came to Amer ica with the Stanleys last winter, is writing an account of his travels in the United ;tates, and also a novel, the scene. of which is laid in America. Eugene Aram's grandson is a lawyer, practicing in Alameda, Cal. If Bulwer Lytton had been alive to know this, the proof-reader would have had to make many corrections 4n the famous novel. The choice of Charles Eliot Norton, as the literary executor of Mr. Lowell, is a singular happy one. The duties will be performed by one who has all the requisites of an accomplished critic and conscientious editor. George Haven Putnam,the New York pub lisher, has received from the French gov ernment the cross of the legion of honor, conferred on him for his services in helping to secure the passage of the international copyright law. S. A. Douglas. prosecuting attorney for the city of Chicago, and son of the famous democrat of that name, never visits Spring field, ill., without going to the tomb of his father's old political opponent and friend, Abraham Lincoln. Their royal hichnesses the Infante An tonio and Infanta Eulalie of Spain have ar rived in London, and will stay at the Bris tol hotel. Don Antonio is the son of the late Duo de Montiensier, and his wife is a daughter of ex-Queen Isabella of Spain. Miss Theo Alice Rtugles, Boston's woman sculptor, is only twenty years old. When she was only 17 two of her works were ac cepted by the Paris salon. She has just submitted a model for the statue of Shakes peare, which the city of Providence is to ereot. Gen. Butler's wife, of whom he writes nso tenderly in his memoirs, was an exquisite elocutionist, surpassed, in the opinion of many, by Fanny Kiemble alone. She kneow several of the Shakespeare plays by heart and believed that they were the work of Bacon. Gov. Eagle, of Arkansas, is one of the many iern whose success in life is due to the encouragemcent and stimulus of a clever wife. Ever since her marriage Mrs. Eagle he:, pushed her husband forward. She even educatedl him, for he could not read until he had reached mature years. The sword of Major-General Sill, of Ohio, was taken from his hand after his death at the battle of Stone IRiver, in the late civil war, by Captain I). M. White, a Texan. The latter officer now proposes to restore the weapon to the general's friends, and is about to visit Ohio for that purpose.

This collection embraces the bones of twenty-two diferent species of animal. which from a geological standpoint were deposited nearly a half million years .go or two or three thousand years before the advent of man. Among the collection were only the remains of two animals, the camel and rhineocerous, that are found on the earth at the present day. However, in the others were the progenitors of many of our present animals such as the dog horse, (this being a tiree toed animal at that date) deer and one or two others. The bones o the comparative though now extinct ani mal, the mastadon, was also found and taken in the collection to show that these great beasts resided upon the earth for many centuries. These bones were all pot rided and in a fine state of preservation, and of the collection quite a number of the skeletons were sufficiently perfect to admit of theirbeing mounted and visitors to the Princeton college museum in after years will have the pleasure of seeing skeletons dug fron' the rook bed, here mounted in their original position and beauty as when they basked in the sun-lit dells of the then semi-tropic Smith river valley, long before the advent of man. Having com pleted a most important labor and secured a wonderful collection of rare animal bones for the institution it represents, the fipe dition started Saturday for a tour of the National park. CARD FROM E. G. BROOKE. He Did Not Attend the Baees While la the Capital City. Warraninz, Mont., Sept. 2,-Editor INDEPENDRNT: Dear Sir-My attention has been called to the following, which ap reared in the local news of your paper of the 80th ult.: "E. G. Brooke, of Whitehall, Jefferson county, is visiting the Capital City, and while here made it a point each day to at tend the races." Now, Mr. Editor, will you kindly correct that statement. The fact is, Ileft my home in the midst of a busy harvest to answer a summons from the president and secretary of our state board of live stook commis sioners, which met in your city on the 26th, 27th and 28th of August, to transact im portant business for the stock interests of the state. During my stay I was no time nearer the Fair ground or race track than the Montana Central railroad depot. I have not been on your fair grounds at any time since 1888 or 1884. I have not seen a horse race since October, 1846. It is true I am fond of good horses, fast horses, and am proud that our state can produce them, and hope that Montana horses may continue to lead the best that other couns tries may produce I am, Mr. Editor, an unworthy member of the Methodist Episcopal Church -onth, and hope never to commit an act thatmay bring reproach on that old honored body of Christians. Yours truly, E. G. BiooKx. SWIMMING ('ONTESTS. Duncan S. Taylor Takes the Championship From J. B. Ross.

Clem ents and Watt Percy were the judges and gave satisfaction. Anderson and slladdox on Trial. Carl Anderson and John Maddox, the two men accused of trying to assist J. E. Cronin and William Tracey to escape from the city 'jail while awaiting trial for attempted burg lary, were before Judge Fanders for trial yesterday. Robert McGinnis, the drug clerk who sold the men the bottle of acid. identified the accused as the parties who bought it. He also recognized the bottle of acid found in the jail. L. H. Graves, of the Holter Hardware company, recognized the tools found in the jail, but couldn't identi fy the prisoners as the people to whom he had sold them. Cronin and Tracey were broucht down from the county jail to tee tify in behalf of the accused. Tracey said some one came to the rear window of the jail during Tuesday night and passed in a package containing the acid, the saw and the files. The party called to him and he got the bundle, but he did not recognize the man. Cronin said he saw the articles handed in, but did not know who did it. The case was adjourned over until to-day to allow Anderson and Maddox to get addi tional witnesses. Ills Clients Needed Identification. "The attorney for the defense having found out who his clients are, we will pro ceed with the case." This remark, made by Judge Sanders in his court last night, was not intended as a reflection on the at torney at all, as it was clearly an impossi bility under the circumstances for him to pick out which men he was to defend from among the hundred or more almond-eyed Mongolians that filled the room. The case was that of Ah Jim. Ah Quin and Quang Wo Ho. all accused of fighting near the police station. Henry C. Smith had been employed by Quang Hing, the Chinese merchant, to defend the two Abhs. He had never seen them, and as his knowledge of the Chinese dialect was about on a par with his clients' acquaintance with English, the lawyer and his charges were unable to identify each other. Qaong Hing was sent for, and pointed out the two men he was interestedin. Then the casewas postponed on account of the absence of a material witness. Entire Change of Programmne. A deal was effected yesterday by which the Palmer house in this city, formerly op erated by Mrs. Wooldridge, has changed hands and will in the future be under the sole management of Mr. O. B. King. The Palmer house, being situated just across the street from the First National bank and just a few doors below the Grand Cential hotel, is by far the most convenient and desirable location in the city. The rooms. fifty-five in number, with but few excep tions are all first-class and will be thor oughly renovated, overhauled and refur nishled. Mr. King, the new lessee, needs no introduction to many of the citizens of Moutana, is one of her pioneer sons who hails from Cataract, in Jefferson county, and has been over fourteen years in the hotel and lodging house business.
