Several hundred of its young friends will onjoy Tan INDEPENDENT matinee this afternoon. As many thousands will appreciate the wholesome enter tainment of reading to-morrowi's paper. Giovanni's triumph will be completed, and the other-"Ah! Which--Giovanni or the other?" The cloaing chanter of the tender story is not lees full of pathos and interest than those preceding. Back numbers of the paper containing the euccessive installments of the story can be secured at the counting room. 'Oeetah" is a charming and romantic story of an Indian princess-a true tale of courage and adventure in the north west. It was written by Maj.-Gen. O. O. Howard, U. S. A. "The Flooking of Birds." An inter eating discussion on a curious subject by Dr. C. C. Abbot, the well-known naturalist. Several noted Roman Catholic clergy men and laymen of New York discuss the subject of the,pope's leaving Rome, and are opposed to such a step. An ex cellent picture of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII. is a feature of the article. "Paper Chasing," or hare and hounds with neither hare nor hounds, is discussed by Walter C. Dohm, the champion ama teur middle distance runner. The sport is popular in the east and. is exciting and seasonable for boys and young men. "Yanking" was great fun for yearlings but rather severe on the plebes at West Point in war times. Capt. Charles King's article is unusually interesting. THE INDEPENDENT Of Sunday will contain these and other special features, besides all the current news. No de partment will be slighted or overlooked. As a newspaper the large twelve page edition of THE INDEPENDENT Of Sunday is unrivaled in Montana. It leads. WAS IT A FORGERY? We understand that Mr. J. M. Greenwood, of Kansas City, has written a letter,to a friend, in which he denies that he voted against Helena as the place for holding the next meeting of the teachers' convention. We do not believe that Mr. J. M. Greenwood has made any such denial. If he has done so, then Mr. J. M. Greenwood is the victim of a most wicked and daring forgery. At the meeting of the execu tive committee of the National Educa tional association, in New York. a letter purporting to be signed by one J. M. Greenwood was submitted by President Cook. It was a long and rambling doc ument, filled with taffy for Helena and Seattle and concluding with a vote for Saratoga as against either of the other cities. Is it possible that Mr. J. M. Green wood, of Kansas City, Mo., did not write that letter? If he did not, for the sake of his battered reputation as a man and a gentleman, he should lose no time in procuring from Mr. Cook, or whoever has charge of the document, the spur ious letter and spare no pains or ex pense to hunt down the forger. He owes this duty not only to himself but to the association, which has been put in a most unenviable light before the country by the trickery and misrepre sentation which have attended the lo cation of the convention. Let Mr. J. M. Greenwood forth with make peremptory demand for the production of the fateful letter that gave the deciding vote for Saratoga We know how Stevenson and Garrett voted. They were for Helena. We think we know how Greenwood voted. There is just one possibility that we are mistaken. The letter that we be lieve he wrote, may have been written by some one else and his name signed to it. Is that so, Mr. Greenwood? NEW YORK has adopted the secret ballot but it does not propose to have 10 to 15 per cent. of the voters of that state disfranchised through inabilty to understand a cumbersome and over loaded ballot act, such as Montana has upon her statute book. The friends of ballot reform are agreed that the work of the voter on election day should be simplified and expedited so that even a wayfaring man may exercise his right and not have his vote thrown out on a technicality. The New York legislature will be asked to amend the act so as to make plainer the political affiliations of candidates. It is proposed that each political party shall select an emblem - a flag, an eagle or other device-- which shall be placed opposite the name of each candidate of that party on the oflicial ballot. Such a pictorial design would enable a voter to mark the names on he ballot quickly and without mistake. The secrecy of the ballot will be pre served inviolate as under the present act, which is the chief object of the bal lot reformers, while the objection to an + as de mootta of New York oty, who are top b Tuiammany hall, .e going td fofm'a ge lt i~tlcu be rules of th Ciounty ,,,llr.ao.

It is a good thing for the immense democratic ma jority in the metropolis to have two or ganiatlons. Rivalry in local contests, if they are honestly conducted, does not hurt the party in general, and tends to make therival leaders more careful. The old County Democracy in its inception was a clean organization. Among its leaders were men like Edward Cooper, Abram S.Hewvitt and William C.Whitney, who saw something more in politics than the spoils of office. Deterioration set in in a few years, hiowever, and the organ ization passed under the control of de signing men who used it for their per sonal ends. Let the new association profit by the mistakes of its predecessor. Tna Louisville Courier-Journal, as suming that the democrats will carry New York, Massachusetts and Iowa next year, as they did in 1890 and 1891, figures that the vote of the electoral ollege next year will stand 258 demo crate and 186 irepublicans. In this cal culation it puts Montana in the repub lican column where it does not belong and where it will not be found next year. Add three more votes to your democratic column Mr. C.-J. CHcAao is on her good behavior on account of the big appropriation she wants from the government for the World's fair, and her business men have resolved not to push for either of the national conventions of 1892. This im proves the chances of Minneapolis foi the republican convention unless New York rises in her might and demands the peculiar honor of sheltering the del egates who set Benjamin Harrison up for the slaughter. 1"OR calm and lofty political philos ophy commend us to the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, which thus solilo quizes: "It has pleased fate to let the t democrats gain a few points this year onlytthat they may have more to lose next year." We commend this sweet spirit to the esteemed Inter-Mountain. It is so much more graceful and easy than trying to convince yourself that v you have won when you have lost. BY all means Helena should be rep resented by a good delegation on the Neihart excursion. The railroad brings us into communication with one of the finest mining districts in the country, and the people of the entire state will e be benefitted by the development that I will be made in this promising section. I TuE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT still grows and climbs. Its circulation is far be yond that of any Sunday newspaper issued between St. Paul and Portland and at its present rate of growth it will soon stand at the head of the list in cir culation as it does in all the attributes of a good newspaper. IF the republican party in New York deposes Thomas C. Platt from its lead ership it will lose the services of one of the keenest politicians the Empire state has produced. The party has no man worthy to be mentioned in the same day with him as an effective organizer. Long Necks in Birds. "Bish" says that "birds having long legs have to have a long neok." "How's that, Bish?" "Why, you see, if they didn't have a long neck, they couldn't drink without sitting down." "Well, Bish, some birds have long necks and short legs. How is that?" "You'll find these things are all calcu lated out. These birds having long necks have use for them. You are thinking about the swan. Well. he likes a bit now and then from the bottom of the water, and his long neck is to enable him to satisfy this taste; besides, long-necked birds feed on food of a poor quality, so that to get any enjoyment out of eating, they have to have a long neck to enable them to taste it long enough to make it enjoyable." "How about snipes?" "Snipes! well, some of them haven't a very long neck, to be easure, but they have what amounts to the same thing-a long bill-and they are rigged so that they can tip up to make up for the rest. Now," said Bish, full of the long neck Idea. "the os trich has the longest legs of any bird I know. Look at his neck! It easily reaches to the ground. Doesn't this prove my posi tion? And his legs are strong enough to hold up an elephant. Speaking of the ele phant," continued Bish, "he isn't a long necked bird-1 mean animal. He hasn't any neck at all, and he is so heavy that he can't sit down every time ho wants a drink or a mouthful of hay. See how these things are calculated out for him. Could any thing be handier than his trunk?" "How about snakes, Bish?" "All neck. They can reach anywhere for food or drink. Returning to birds," said Bish, "did it ever occur to you that birds that roost can't fall over backward?" "No, indeed. How do you explain that?" "Well, you see, their claws reach around the perch, so that when they begin to lean over backward their claws tighten like a pair of pipe tongs. I tell you," said Bish, "these things are all calculated out."-Sci entific Anmsican. Arbitrarily educed tlhe Price of (Gas.

EXCURSION TO NEIHART.. Helena People to Attend the Celebratlor at the Mining Camp. A special meeting of the Board of Trade was held last night to consider the matte] of making up an excursion to leave Helena this evening for Neihart. B. H. Langley general agent of the Great Northern%''ail road, was present. The road offered tc send a special train of two coaohee from Helena to join the Great Falls excursaon ists at the latter place. The fare will be $7 for the round trip, of which $8.70 is fo the special to Great Falls and return, and $3.30 from Great Falls to Neihart and back to the Falls. As it is intended to run a special from Great Falls anyhow, the addi tional trouble to the road will'be the spe cial from Helena to the Falls and back. For this the road asked a guarantee of 100 oexoursionists or $370. President Parchen, of the Board of Trade, regretted that his duties on the United States grand jury would prevent him going, but strongly favored the excursion. He thought that there should be no titoubl in getting 100 people to go. T. C. Power suggested that it would be well to get up a list of subscribers to about $200 toward the guarantee of $370, and started ouk with the paper right there. He got a preatyrgood amount subscribed, and will work jup the balance to-day. Those who subscribe will only be called on to pay pro raja for any deficiency that may arise should the num ber of excursionists fall short of 100, and for what small expense will be entailed in decorating the caos. If the number ex coeeds 100 the subscribers will only have to pay their share of the decoration of the care. The railroad agreed to start the special out of Helena at whatever time should be most agreeable to the exeursioniste. The meeting decided that the best time to leave Helena would be six o'clook this evening. The train will arrive in Great Falls about 9:30 to-night. With the other special con taining the Great Falls people it will leave that place at eight o'clock to morrow morn in and reach Neihart about 11 o'clock. The people of Neihart offer the visitors the best there is in the camp, and the return will be made to suit the convenience of the excursionists. 'bhe Helena people will p obably keep on straight through not stopping at Great Falls and reaching home some time Sunday night. 'The following committee were appointed to solicit excursionists for the trip: F. P. Sterling, Frank Lang, L. C. Stebbins, A. Lambeth, S. 'IT. Langhorne, Louis Rotwitt R 0. O. Hickmann and John W. Thompson. Barnard Brown was appointed to take charge of the decoration of the oars and Commodore Power will con tinue on the list of subscribers to the guar antee. The following address was adopted by the board: "The business men of the city of Helena in general are respectfully invited to jia n in the Board of Trade excursion to Neilrrt on the ocbasion of the opening itf the Great Northern into that place. A special train will leave the Montana Central depot at six p. rm. to-day (Saturday). Fare for the round trip $7. All are cordita y in vited." The Good Name of Smith Vindicated. OLYMPIA, Wash., Nov. 13.-The death of Dr. C. S. Smith has brought to light sensa tional developments in his career. He came to this city from Llano, 'I'exas, where for seventeen years he was a prominent physi cian. Among his effects was found a state ment that his name was not Smith, but T. C. Thompson and that he was county treas urer of J)Decatur county, Iowa, in 1872. While acting in this capacity he defaulted iin a large sum and fled. His family mourned him as dead. In his will he be queathed half of his estate worth about $ro,000 to his wife and children, the other half to go to the sureties on his bond as treasurer. He was about 65 years of age and was well esteemed. He says in the statement that his shortage wis due to too much confidence in professed friends, but that it is not nearly as large as ispresented by the papers after he fled. Capt. Stay Vs. Maj.
