We have an ex rienced corps of operators, ho live in houses, eat gro eries, patronize meat shops and akeries; wear dry goods and hoes, and we call on landlords, ocers, butchers, bakers, dry goods nd shoemen, and in fact all who re interested in Helena's pros rity, to have a dozen or a half ozen shirts made, and keep these perators busy and encourage one f the pioneer industries of the ity. Everybody with the perceptive bilities of a two-year-old will rec gnize the fact that there are two inds of clothing business. One is te noisy and sensational, while he 'other is the conservative and eritorious. One deals in the ham and showy style of the 'cir us' outfit; the other gives thought o the exact style and satisfaction f the customer. One will tell how hey sell goods for less than cost, he other argues on the best quali y, and endeavors to persuade the ublic that in the genuine is the atisfaction. One deals in sidewalk olicitation, button - holing the asser-by, while the other, relying n the merit of his goods and the orrect principles , of the day, akes his general appeal in the egitimate manner and does the alance of his business inside his tote.

ARRI S BROTHERS 119-121 forth Main Street, E ES CARBLOWN OPEN Bold Train Robbery by Masked Men Not Far Out From Mil. waukee. After 'Entranoe Was Secured thp Safee Were Thrown on the Ground. Double-Barreled Guns Were Used in Lieu of Milder Argument--Not Much Booty Secured. MILWAUKUa, Nov.12.-The midnight train from Chicago on the Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul road was robbed by masked men near the Western Union junction, at one o'clock this morning. The train had pulled out of the junction, twenty-three miles south of this Ipoo, about half a mile, when Fireman Edw d Averill, who was putting coal into the furnace, was startled by a noise behind him. He turned around and discovered two masked men clambering over the engine tender. Both leveled their double-barrbled guns at the fireman and Engineer Bill McKay with the in I junction, "Don't move an inch i till we tell you to move, or we'll blow the top of your d-d head off." En gineer McKay was directed to run about one mile from the Western Union junction, and was then commanded to stop, and both men were ordered to step down out of the cab. T'hey were marched to the express car under cover and then the work of blow ing open the expresl oar began. Several bombs, the fireman thinks they were, were thrown into the car and the explosions were terrific and must have awakened every passenger on the train, but nobody ap peared on the scene. The robbers were un doubtedly not less than six or seven in num ber, judging by the manner in which they conducoted the operations. The train men believe they had a team close at hand, with which to cart away the safe, which was taken boldly out of the car. Fireman Averill's story is the most comprehensive. "They made me walk ahead of them to the express car," he sai.l. "and then gave me a jimmy to pry open the boxes. They got the messenger's keys, though he was in no hurry to give them up, and they will have no trouble in getting away with all the money." The train was held for over half an hour. The entire efforts of the robbers were centered on the express car, and not a passenger was molested. The fireman thinks there were a half a dozen men guard ing the coaches, however. The Milwaukee and Racine police were telegraphed for inimediately and Detective Hanson was provided with a special train on which he left at 2:40 o'elook. "Lesan than five minutes out of the West ern Union junction." said Messenger Mur phy, "the train slowed up suddenly. A musket was then poked through the top window of the car, and a second later a ter rilde explosion occurred that knocked both myself and Mr. Cook in a heap. Half a dozen more explosions followed and both doors flew off the bolts. Then two men, wearing big black masks, clambered quickly into the car and covered us with muskets. We were cau tioned to maintain silence under pen alty of getting our heads blown off. After glancing hurriedly about the car, the rob bers fastened their eyes on the two iron boxes of the American Express company. The robbers brought the fireman in a little later and went through all the boxes. They compelled us to hand over the keys. They dumped the boxes out on the load bed. One of the robbers kept us covered with his musket all the time, while the other super intended the operations of the fireman." Messenger Murphy stated that he secured all the bills of money contained in the safes and that the sum is undoubtedly a very large one. It is probable that the total amount of the robbers' booty will amount to $100,000 and possibly more. The officials at St. Paul said the train which was held up was the one which generally carried all the money received by the Milwaukee bank from the east in the marning. Agent John F. Bell, of the American Express company, said to a reporter that the approximate statement of the amount taken by the rob bers could not he learned. He said that $5,000 in local packages Wvas certainly gone, besides a sum contained in two sealed en When the train arrived at the uniol depot, at 2:20 o'clock, the express oar pro sented a sight that indicated it had been attacked by heavy artillery. Every doo and window had been blown to pieces anm the platform and walls shattered in half i dozen places, while the contents were pileo in an indiscriminate heap in the center o the car. General Manager Earling, of St. Paul received a dispatch this morning which says that the robbers did not get any booty fron the express car held up near the Westeri Union junction this morning. The dis. patch said that the robbers, after gaininm admission to the express car, com manded the messenger to open the safes. He refused, and the safes were pitched out of the oar on to the ground. In the meantime the rear brake. roan, understanding the situation, rushed back to the junction and got an engine and posse and at once went to the scene and the robbers fled. The robbers haditried by force to open the doors of the datfes, but were unsneceseful. TLhe fast mail picked up the safes and carried them to Milwau kee. The three robbers, after paining an entrance, demanded and got the keys to the safes at the muzzles of their guns. Toe engineer was compelled by force to open the local safe contain ing money and valuables con signed from Chicngo for points be tweoon Chiaongo and LaCrosse. As the safes had combination locks, the robbers were unable to get into them. Tile robbers then compelled the train men to assist in throw ing out the treasure boxes from the car. I he locomotive headlight had been extin uaished, and the robbers then sent the engi neer and fireman into the cab and ordered the train to pull out. The way safe con tained btween $2,000 and $3,000 and way bills, which were taken and probably de stroyed. No Trace of the Robbers. MILwAUvsa, Nov. 12.-The most exper ienced detectives in the employ of the Chi cago, Milwaukee & St.lPaul railway, assisted by the sheriff of Racine county and a large Rosse of men, up to late hour to-night were unable to track the robbers who stole about $4,000 from the Americanr express car near Western Union Junction last night. Sev eral clues were followed up by them, none 3t them resulting in anything, however. iremnsu Averill and Conductor Tucker are positive there were only two men who did the job, and not six or more, as iriginally stated, The two combination affse were found intact, and had been left ehbind by the robbers. They were evi lently frightened away before they had a ,hence to blow the safes open. The onun. ity of nitro-glycerine which they left be. rind would have sufficed to open ten more lafes equally no strong.

He was caught between the lintel and the high watgon seat. KNOCKED OUT A FEW LINES. The Big Fellow Addicted to Poetry and Southdown Whiskers. SAN FaANorsoo. Nov. 12.-Who is there in this country that does not like to read bount John L. Sullivan and his doings i The big fellow is probably more talked abont than most public men of higher station. Great interest attaches just now to the.aut of John's whiskers. The newspapses of San Francisco have done themselves proud in describing the hirsute appendage of the champion. All of them print pictures of Sullivan representing him before and after growing his Southdown mutton chops. No one would ever recognize Sullivan, the champion, in these ove' drawn effusions. Worse estill,' the San Francisco journals quote some of tullivan's poetry. The Ex aminer has the following, which is selected as a fair sample of Sullivanese: A change hey swept over de face of dis eart' In Acetrayter it snowed quite prom;skers; An' now I'm come back ter de land o' me birt', An' de wind's goin puff tro' me whiskers. Caught on the Chin. SAN FiAlOrsco.

Frills and furbelows on chemises have on. tirely gone out, and they are most simply ornamented with rare lace and narrow cemia of dots or fleurettes running round the deoolletage. Valenciennes is still the favorite lace, but Malines and Alenoon are coming along very rapidly for underwear. A simple and charming way of ornament ing chemises is to have a broad bias fold of very fine cambric open worked onto the material with gashes buttonhole stitched at the bust. Through the bias a broad rib bon of satin or moire is run, the cambrio selihtly fulled, end a pretty bow finishes the garment just above the corset busk. For night dresses the favorite shape has an enormous Pierrot collar of cambric, turned back and edged with lace or a fnloe frilling of gossamer, while rows of abirring at the waist give it something of a shape that, although loose, is a decided inmprovoment on the baggy arrannements of yore. At the neok, and iun through at the waist, ribbons are tied by the inmore coquettish. Exchange. The Austro-Hungarlan budget for 1812 was presented to the delegations Monday.

S!'law Yona, Nov. 11.-The Herald this a motning published the following from a Corteespondent at Rio Janeiro: Un to the present writing there is nothing, so far as ohanbe learned here, to seriously threaten the'tability of Fonseoa's dictatorship. If theýe is any revolt in Pernambuoa, Bahia or 0rao Parano reliable information of it has t not eached this coity. There are doubtless, I am given to understand, disaffected re publicans and a number of imperialists who would like to sea the monarchy re established, but they have not, so far as known here, openly pronounced against thesgovernment, The only signs of dis content the people of Rio are aware of are in ilio Grande do Snl, the southern of the states in the republic. such disturbances as have broken out there appear from such intelligence as we receive to be altogether of a local character. So slight is the uprising officially regarded that the governor of the state is considered fully capable of dealing with it. He thinks so himself since he has not seen fit to make a call upon the government for assistance. It is believed if the outbreak was so serious as to imperil his power the governor would ee tautly before this have asked such aid. Rio is quiet and business is conducted as befor4 the dissolution of congress. Fonseca still maintains he has no intention of con tinuirg the dictatorship beyond such time as is ýecessary to re-establish perfect peace all ov'r Brazil. ' Rep rts were current in the city to-day to the effect that the army and navy forces were naking preparations to proclaim Fonse a life dictator of Brazil. The gov ernmert is seeuring a full complement of men fdr warships by means of impressment. The press gang is actively engaged in the work of pounoing upon and forcibly con veying to ships all eligible men who they think would make desirable members of a crew. A number of officers have started for Rio Grands do Sul, at which place it is reported those who have taken part in the revolutionary movement against the dictator are now completely under the con trol of the government. The corespondent of the Herald at Valpoa^ i sent tiete following dispatch, dated Nov. 11: It is reported to-night that a ndmber of members of the Brazilian con gress, which Dictator Fonseea recently dis solved, have sought refuge in different for eign leations in Rio Janeiro. Uruguay has become alarmed at the state of affairs in Brazil and massed troops along the frontier line of that country. I am just in receipt of a dispatch from Buenos Ayres which states that on the "night of Nov. i a revolt begun in Rio Grande do $ul and spread "rapidly. At last accounts the greater part of that statd was occupied by ,the rebels. Gen. Fernandez and Gen. Santa Ana are said to be at the head of the revolutionists and their ranks are reported to be receiving constant acces sions. The garrison at Yuguaron, it is said, have joined the insurgents and the artillery has been placed at the disposal of the two generals in command. The dictator's gov ernor in Rio Grande do ul, Castilo, deemed the revolt so serious that he asked the cen tral government for reinforcements, repre senting his position as precarious. In com pliance, Fonseoa at once sent four gun boats, three monitory and two transports loaded with troops to the scene of the up rising. The troops will be landed at the ports of Rio Grande do Sul, Pelotas, and San Jose do Norte, at the mouth of the bay of Pntna. Following upon the announcement of the garrisons at Yuguaron going over to the insurgents comes word that two other gar risons have also joined the rebel forces in . Rio Grande do Sul. While this is taking place the residents of Rio Janeiro seem to be kept in perfect ignorance of these stir 3 ring events. They believe everything is peaceful in the republic, and that the dis content against Fonseca is not worth no ticing. Their ignorance is owing to the fact that the government is suppressina all telegrams that describe the true situation of affairs in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The chiefs of tue revolution are said to be Visconde Pelotas, Baron Jijuk. Gen. Astropillo end Gen. Fravares. 'Iheir ob - ject seems to be to form a national party in opposition to the dictator. The party is to be made up of both liberals and con servatives. The probabilities are that the authorities will meet with a very lively time in Rto Grande do Sul. Persons hitherto holding office. but now opposed to Fonseca, are in destitute circumstances. 1EVEREIISH TIMES. A Correspondent at Itlo Foretold the Popular Discontent. New Yozx, Nov. 12.-The Associated press has a letter from its correspondent in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, under date of Oct. 14, which, while prior to the breaking out of the revolution contains much of interest regarding the situation in that couutry. The state of affairs, the correspondent says, is far from satisfactory. In the last two years the country has been flooded with paper money now amounting nomiunally to 02500,t)0,000 and deprecinted to loss than 55 per cent. of its nominal val ue. In con sequence of this depression and burden- i some taxes all the necessaries of life are at exorbitant figures and constantly rising. Salaries and wages, however, have not risen. Strikes and disturbances, at one time almost un known in Brazil, have become frequent. Rio do Janeiro had just passed through I serious disturbance originating in a ridioun lously insignificant cause, tile fact showing that in tihe irritated state of public feeooling many persons are ready to seize on any pre text to cause trouble, T'he manager of ante opera company being unpopular, a band of students one night itsalsted on his coming before thle curtain to be hissed, He replied that while duly grateful, he lmeust decline, whereupon the.studente persisted in their demands until the police interfered. Ihen followed a wild riot, in which the interior of thie opera bhose was wrecked and imany persons injured. Next day the papers attacked the police anld speeches were made on street corners 0 by orators, asmong whom were socme uco- i gresemen and officers of the army. At a night riotitlg began and many persons woere i wounded, two or more beiog killed. Thel army seenmed in a great nmeasurer to sympaD- a thizo with the people against the police. llioting continued until next day Lesut the excuitemsent then quieted down. 'lie corre eponldetst confidently predicts, however, that there will be more rioting soon, both a in tio Janeiro and elsewhere. lndeed, it o was reported at the date of his letter that fi the people of Amazonas had revolted h against their governor, and that in Alagoas V there was a riot in which three were killed and a number wounded. Congress for months has been at logger beads with the president, and" has aooom olished little nctual legislation. The sani tary condition of the city was very bad. In September there were 1,822 deaths from smallpox and some from yellow fever. The committee on diplomacy in the chamber of deputies have reported in favor of ratifying the treaty for international ar bitratjon prepared at the Pan-American congrrss. It is stated that the Brazilian government will shortly ask for a revision of the reciprocity treaty with the United States. It is hoped in Brazil that America will agree to revision, which can be effected in the interests of both nations. The inte rior of the state of Bahia is suffering much from drought, in consequence of which it is said the state has lost by death and emi gration over 60,000 inhabitants. TAKE YOURI CHJOICE. Official Announcemeut of Tranquility Another to the Contrary. WAsirtrnOvro, Nov. 12,-Senor Mendonica, Brazilian minister here, received a telegram from the home government to continue to deny alarming news spread through Europe in regard to the restoration of the mon archy and the disturbance of public order in Brazil. Rio de Janiero is declared to be perfectly quiet, as are all the states except Rio Grande do Hul, where the government has taken measures to put down the 'conflict arising from a struggle for supremacy be tween two parties. The government will shortly fix a day for congressional elections according to the electoral law. The res tcratiou of the monarchy is opposed al most universally, as a matter definitely settled. Minister Mendonica furnished a copy of the above cablegram to becretary Blaine. He explains that it was sent by Senor Chermont, Brazilian minister of for eign relations, to the Lisbon mission, with instructions to forward to Brazilian minis ters in all European countries as well as to the United states. Following close upon the sweeping de nials made by the Brazilian foreign minia ter, which assert that tranquility prevails throughout Brazil, with the exception of some local trouble in Rio Grande do SIl, comes a cable direct from Rio Janiero, which shows the state of affairs unlike the minister's dispatch indicates. As evidence of the truth of reports that everything in the political sitsation in Brazil points to a revolution against the dictator, the dispatch says that General Fernandez, who is said to be one of the principal leaders in the revo uIntionary movement, has been arrested by the dictator's order and lodged in prison. The dispatch says discontent is spreading among the troops and that garrisons sta tioned at several places, numbering in all 4,000 men, have declared against Da Fon peca. SEMI-OFFICIAL NEWS. Charges of lins Against Information Com lug Fromn 'ngland.' WAsmrnirox, Nov. 12.-The bureau of American republics has, from semi-official sources, information.in regard to the pres ent condition of affairs in Brazil, to the effect that telegraphic news coming from or via London, is often entirely false and gen erally distorted or magnified. British jeal ousey of the increasing influence of the United States in Brazil, and fear of loing commercial supremacy in that country, are motives which inspire false and alarming dispatches concerning political disturbances in Brazil. The situation at Rio Grande do Sul is peculiar. L arty feeling hav ing been very warmly aroused between republicans on the one hand and adherents of the liberal narty, partisans of the deposed leader, Silvera Martinez, on the other. About one-third of the popula tion of that state is of German descent, and a gentleman thoroughly acquainted with them says among them national feeling is much stronger than state attachment, therefore he thinks no secession movement can be permanently successful.in the state. There is a tendency among the smaller states to merge themselves with their larger neighbors, and a clause of the new lonstitution provides for such action. Resolutions Adopted and Rejected. SEDALIA, Mo, Nov. 12.-The Farmers National congress this morning adopted number of, resolutions, among them ree ommending state control of live stock ex changes, so no live stock agent can be ex eluded; recommending the passage of a na tional law requiring the stamping of arti ficial hog products; endorsing the princi pie of reciprocity and the work already ac complished by the World's fair directors demanding a federal law prohibiting gam. bling in farm products. A number of ree olutions were rejected, among them thi following: Demanding the free coinage ol silver dollars of a value of 100 cents each government ownership of railroads ani telegraphs; federal prohibition of the salt of intoxicating liquors; cession of arid lands to various states. It was decided to hold the next conven. tion at Lincoln, Neb. A. W. Smith, of Kansas, was elected president; D. F. Clay ton, of Iowa, secretary; Wmin. Fteeman, treasur or. A Virginia Mosquito. A friend at Phoebns sent the Landmark the other day a specimen of Mill Creek mosquito which he had captured in that neighborhood. The capture was effected by the administration of chloroform while the insect was temporarily sojourning in a drug store. Frontm the tip of his beak to to the end of his tail he measured one and one-fourth inches, while the wings from tip to tip covered two inches. His legs were each fully an inch long, and our correspondent says thiswasn't an especially good day for mosquitoes, either.-Norfolk Landmark. Otffical Statlstics.

ROUTED THE REDCOATS. 1 n Frouzy Blatherekites Not Allowed to )r Make Incendiary Harangues in n Chicago. a Their Much Boasted Valor Quickly d Oozed Out When the Blue coats Appeared. i-. An Anarchist Meeting Raided by the Poliee-Two or Three Dastardly At tempts at Murder. a, Crrcaoo, Nov. 12.-Within a bomb's throw m of the Ilaymarket, armed anarchists to o night again met the Chicago police. The ?e result was an ignominoun defeat for the 1- reds. A mass meeting of the most radical or element was announced to be held this eve so ning in Grief's hall, on West Lake street, a t place celebrated in the annals of followers of Spies and Parsons. The decision unex pectedly displayed by the authorities last II night in compelling the anarchist gather s ing on West Twelfth street to hoist the stars and stripes had a disconcerting effect and at the last moment to-night it was de a cided to make the gathering secret and to y admit only a few of themost trusted spirits. y Accordingly the master of ceremonies, Thos Grief, proprietor of the big saloon below the hall, announced that his place o upstairs had been previously engaged, thus dismissing the general "rabble. Those who could be depended upon went up stairs. There were gathered many of ,I those who were leaders before the Haymar I, ket massacre. Speeches were made in En . glish and German and the enthusiasm was .a great. The American flag was not there. It was thought the police had been com a pletely hooodwinked. In this, however, the h reds were mistaken. A detective had been 0 for several days cultivating the acquaint ance of the orators. He was admitted to the meeting and before long got word out to lnesretor Lewis at Desplaines street sta tion that inflammatory speeches were being I made; that a number.of those in the meet ing were displaying arms and boasting of the use they would be put to in case the police interfered. In the saloon below 200 men were gathered and speeches were being made scarcely less incendiary than those above. It was evident that trouble might f occur at any moment. 1 BSuddenly, at a signal given by the de tective in the meeting, the police made a e raid. Fifty men in plain clothes guarded r the rear of the building and allowed no person to leave. Inspector Lewis tind Capt. Mahoney, at the head of 100 nut. formed officers, marched to the front dot, taking the meeting completely by eurpri. g Proprietor Grief saw the blue costs and e attempted to shut the doors in their faces. g His effort was futile, however, as one blow s from a club shattered the glass. A vigor Sons kick burst the door in and a double line of officers poured into the room. Men I who, a moment before, had been boasting I of their intention to hurl defiance into the teeth of the Chicago police, made a rush for the rear doors, but, at the sight of guns there displayed, halted and with one or I two exceptions showed every symptom of cowardice. ''Throw up your hands I" shouted Inse.. tor Lewis. At the command 400 hands went into the air and officers commenced a search for weapons. Those found to poe. sess revolvers or other arms were placed un der arrest, while the others were hustled r into the street and told to leave the vicinity at once. One little fellow, who wore a flaming necktie, backed against the wall, drawing from.his pocket a wicked looking revolver and snapped it in thefaceof the policeman. Fortunately the cartridge missed' fire, and before the would-be murderer could again press the trigger a blow from a club knocked the gun from his hand. An for blood-thirsty individual endeavored to use his revolver, crying curses against all police and all law. When his weapon was snatched from him he declared himself an &harchist ready to die and dared the police to shoot him. In the meantime a squad of police u.de Lienut. Wheeler started to ascend the stairs They met resistance from Grief and fron an unknown man who drew from his pock. a long revolver, declaring that he wounl shoot the first officer whq put foot on thl stairs. These men were quickly over powered and twenty-five police rushed a, and broke into the secret meeting. A nnt. her of men, 254, were arrested here. A large amount of inflammatory literature captured and a number of red flags torn from the walls and destroyed. Within the seorel portals the only real resistance encountered by the police canme from three unknown men, who, in the rush, escaped. They jumped behind the bar as the officers ef tared and began throwing bottles and glasses. A number of officers V~bre struco but not seriously hurt. Among those arrested was one of the editors of the Arbeiter Zeitung, a German daily paper, successor of Spies & Parson's rabid sheet, and which has decided anarcho ist principles. This man was making a speech in the meeting when the officers entered. He made a plea' for release claiming he was there in the capacity or a reporter. The police however, would not accept this plea. Among the prisoners found armed were several well known to the police and who were prominent in the ranks of the anarchists five and saix years ago when the red flag was so often seen on the streets of Chicago. Inspector Lewis adnounced that he will demand to-morrow the revoking of Grief's license. Inspector Lewis said that while he was in command of that division no meetingu would be held with incendiary intention. One of the ofloers in citizens clothes, who was in the crowd before the raid was made, reports that one of the speakerssaid the an archists were now stronger than ever before anti prepared to give the police a big dose of the medicine administered at Haymar. ket. Another detective listened to a speech declarlug that the police had no right to interfere with any meeting and that the time will soon come when the police force will be completly iannihilated. Another officer was treated to an interesting speech, hearlng it stated that every policeman ought to be hung. As that was impossible, the reds wotuld have to satisfy themselves with as saesination. Most of the orisoners were released on hail, Thomas Grief going on the bonds of t majority of them. Officer Sullivan, who was in the secret meeting, told Inseector Lewis that one of' the speakers proposed a revival of the use of dynamite bombs and also ita revival of the '"group" system, by which so much was once accooomplished.
