Commenting on the contest for seats in the New York legislature the Journal says: "Democratic boards of supervisors have thrown out republican votes in various counties and issued certificates of election to men not elected. When mandamused by a judge of the supreme court and ordered to count the votes as cast no attention was paid whatever to the order." Is the Journal sure that it isn't all a dream? IIasn't it mixed Montana and New York in its night mare? Shouldn't the paragraph read like this: "To accomplish this a republi can board of supervisors has thrown out democratic votes and issued certificates of election to men not elected. When mandamused by a judge of the supreme court and ordered to count the votes as cast no attention whatever was paid to the order." But if the Journal isn't dreaming, and is really and truly awake, does it possess the nerve to condemn that in New York which it upheld in Montana_ IT WILL BE HARRISON. The esteemed Inter Mountain seems to think that Mr. Blaine will be nomi nated because he would be stronger in Montana than any other republican candidate. But the republicans are after bigger game than Montana. The election will be determined by the vote of New York and Indiana. The man most likely to carry those two states 1will be the nominee of the republican party. Blaine lost both these states in 1884. He has always been peculiarly weak in both. There is no reason to be lieve that he is stronger in either at the present time than he was eight years ago. Mr. Harrison, on the contrary, carried the two states, and won his elec tion over the strongest candidate the democrats could have named. The more the republican bosses think it over, the more clearly will they come to see the unwisdom, as Lincoln put it, "of swapping horses while you are crossing the stream." Next week Mr. Harrison's anti-silver message will be out. It will win for him the applause and support of New York. The party in that state will stand by him in the national convention. Mr. Depew himself has said it, and no man knows the sentiment of the state better. Of course Mr. Har risen cannot carry Montana. Nobody expects him to do so. He will be beaten in this state by Cleveland or any other man the democrats may nominate. Montana has only three electoral votes, and the republican leaders are after thirty-six. BLAINE SHUT OUT. Judge Scott, the talkative brother in-law of the president who has recently visited Washington, says: "Harrison and Blaine will not both go before the convention. There is an understanding between them to that effect. They are in perfect accord and will pull together." The Philadelphia Record quotes this remark and adds: "It is a puzzling and withal a somewhat exasperating situa tion to the camp followers who know not how to pin their cap or shout huzzas. If Russell Harrison's paper, which knew so much of Mr. Blaine's in tention and fealty some. months ago, could shed a few more gleams of knowl edge on this subject a mystified and waiting land would feel deeply grateful for the small favor." Our Philaulelpihia contemporary is not a close reader of the Helena organ. The latter has al ready declared that Mr. :llaine must stand aside--that every principle of manhood and honor forbids him to take a nomination-that in fact he pledged himself on entering the cabinet not to be in Mr. Hlarrison's way for a second term. Then. too, the Ilelona organ, speaking of course for the administra tion, called attention to the fact that Mr. Blaine would he treacherous to the party if he did not take the stump in Ohio. It left him the other alternative of acknowledging to the country that he was a sick man. Mr. Blaine demon onstrated that he was not sick by going back to his duties in Washington, but he did not go to Ohio, and therefore he still rests under the Journal's imputa tion of lukewarmness to the republican cause. So far as Mr. Harrison can con trol matters, Mr. Blaine is barred, and the Record should make a note of it. MILLS AND CRISP. The New York Sun's persistent mise replresentation of Mr. Mills as an .bl solute free trader discredits the integrity of ttlhat newspaper. Mr. Mills has never given utterance to any senti ment that warrants such a statement. His telegram to the New York World of last Saturday succinctly states a plat form on which the entire democratic party stands. lie said: I would try, if I had the power, to make the tal iff low for the United States. I wsould except from taxation all raw ante rial. Why? Because we could then pro duce cheaper than any other people, sand sell in markets now closed to us by reason of the the higher cost which the tax on ma terial makes. That would sive vastly more employment to our labor, and consequently biheri wdge therm an prophias systeua ot Tli6 1l~et quetion the legslateoraxaI t ask himself is, how will it affect employment of American labor Having rendered free from taxation all raw shatorial the rates on the finished goOds should be reduced to that flure that Will r bring the required retoenut and no wors. This reduction of rate. will be a teductiOt price to the consumer and largely ncrease home consumption and home produQtion, and again enlarge the demand for employ. ment. This is substantially what I have said all over the country. The Sun affects to support Mr. Crisp for speaker ostensibly because he is more satisfactory to it on the question of tariff reform. But here is what Mr. Crisp said in his speech on the MoKin lay bill: Modify the existing tariff laws: reduce taxation; permit some reasonable competi tion in the market; destroy trusts; accord equal riehts to all and special privileges to none. I)o these things asd you will help him. Give the farmer free salt. That would help a little. You give it to the fisherman on the coast of Maine and on the coast of Massachusetts; why not give it to ate farmer? Give him Ufee bagging, in which the farmer of the west sacks hit co'n and with which the farmer of the south wraps his cotton. Give him free iron ties, with which in the south he binds his cotton bales and with which in the west he bales his hay. (Give him some reduction on his hats, on his woollen clothes and on his cotton goods. In that way, and in that way only, can you benefit the great mass of the farmers of the south and west. You cannot increase the price of their products by protective tariff duties, but you can de crease the cost of production and of living I by reducing the tariff on those articles used i to make their crops, and on those articles of necessity which All families must use. This is identically Mr. Mills' platform. The Sun cares nothing for Crisp but it wants to use him to defeat Mills, in or der that it might claim the cause of tariff reform had been beaten in the democratic party. t CleNsUrE of Gov. Hill for not resign ing the office of governor to take his seat in the United States senate next Mon day is unjust and unfair. The only way in which the governor can resign is by giving official notification to the legisla ture when that body is in session. The new legislature meets in January and it would be ridiculous in the governor to call the old legislature together for the purpose of handing in his resignation. He will take his seat in the senate in January and he will not have occupied it long before our republican friends will wish he hadn't taken it so soon. THE esteemed Herald is wasting its breath on Senator Brice. The question of his residence in Ohio has been legally determined and the issue cannot be raised by Foraker blatherskites. Be sides, Mr. Sherman does not want For aker for a colleague and that ,settles it. ODORrESS whisky is the latest scien tific discovery. Vice-President Morton will stock his bar with it before the next meeting of the W. C. T. U. PEOPLE WE TALK ABOUT. The czar of Russia and the Siamese king are among the monarchs who are alleged to ride bicycles. The empress of Austria has a ladies' safety. Don Dickinson is called the Jenneas Mil ler of politics because he is charged with the parentage of Michigan's bifurcated style of electoral vote. President Harrison is fond of the theater and has become one of the most regular first-nighters in Washington. He appreci ates a good play and enjoys a hearty laugh at a humorous hit. Lord Salisbury, as prime minister of Eng land, has seen seven consecutive lord mayors' days, and in doing so he has beaten the record of more than sixty years, or since Lord Liverpool's time. Dr. Phillips Brooks cannot be persuaded to wear a bishop's ring or any other jewelry on his fingers. The new bishop of Massa chusetts preached to his old congregation in Trinity church, Boston, last Sunday. The Bean Brummel of New York's mid dle-aced millionai:ee is Mr. D. O. Mills, who follows the fashions in male attire very closely, wears his clothes well and is altogether a model for a metropolitan Criesus to pattern after. George Washington Custrl Lee, who lives so quiet a life in Lexington, Va., where he is president of Washington and Lee uni versity, is a tall. brown-bearded man, straight as a soldier, instead of being bent like a scholar, and so reserved and modest in his tastes that the near approach of a fair young girl is actually said to call blushes to his cheek. He is fond of lectur ing on applied mathematics. Like most men of brains, Dr. Nelson, the newly elected bishop of Georgia. has a fad that nte-eates him even more than his life work. The bishop is fond of wood-carving, at which he has become an expert. Theo dore 'llton was recently noted as taking great interest in carpuetry, and Edward Everett Hale is said to have a workshop near his study. 'I here was a French kingi just before the revolution--Louis XVJ. who took more pleasure in pursuing his trade of locksmith than in squandering the people's money or in adding a new pro fessional beauty to his houshold, the recog nized kingly diversions of those days. (,ell in a Spasn in (.oart. Henry Wilson was chlarged before Judge Sanders yesterday with disturbing the peace by uttering vulgar end abusive language. Wilsonr is a foot peddler, and claimed that the articles sold by him were of his own manufacture and therefore he was not liable to pay a license. Complaint hrid been made to the police that when he was not permittc'd to enter houses for the purpose of diepltyijng his wares, or when any rebuff was rrdministered to him, lie Irberaule abus ive and would Ipredict that untold calami ties would befall the peiole who displeased him. He stated that his father had ex pended largeo sums of money in his educa tion, that he wo. a good chemist, and the articles he was selling were Imanrufctured by him as the result of his knowledge of that science. Ito alppeared to be somewhat erratic mentally, and his antirs and gestic ulations before the court wore sad to see. Under the cross-examinatiou of the court he was thrown Into ai spnasm, and he was or dered to be taken before thIe district court. BIrother of Psaruell.

In the baggage car of the west bomnd Great Northern train yesterday was a cot on which rested, as comfortably as could be expected under the circumstances, Jake Harris, otherwise known as Jew Jake, one of the principals in the Great Falls shoot ing affair on the opeaslon of the retuar of the Helena excursionists from Neihart. With him was Dr. M. tockman, who went to Great Falls Sunday last to consult as to the advisability of taking off Jew Jake's in jured leg. The Helena physician consulted with Drs. Longeway, Adams and Reed. '1he four divided even on the question of amputation. Dr. Lonepway stood with Dr.'Rookman in favor of saving both life and limb. The wounded man himself expressed a desire to keep himself intact and also to get away from Great Falls. After forty-eight hours, dur ing which he continued to improve, it was decided to bring him to Helena. On. his arrival here he was taken to St. Peter's hospital. Dr. Rockman states that the bone of the right leg above the knee is frao tored, and splinters have been knocked off the side by the ball. There is. however, a chance for the bone to knit without short ening the leg, as the splinters, which have been taken out, are from the sides and not from the body of the femur. If nature keeps up its work the doctor thinks the fractured bone will knit. There is no necessity at present to amputate the -leg and probably will not be. AMUSEMENTS. The closing overa of the Carleton eange ment was sung to a small audien at Mings last evening. This was not bettse of lack of appreciation of the many>.sa mendable features of the company,; but rather because of the unusually high prices which prevailed. Helena will not pay high prices except for stars of the highest mag nitude. The Gondoliers is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's cleverest compositions, It is bright in dialogue, replete with tuneful melodies and exceedingly attractive to all lovers of light opera. It wasfinely sung by Mr. Carleton and his company. Mr. Carle ton's rich and sympathetic baritone was heard to fine advantage, while his manly appearance and good acting added greatly to the general effect of his performance. Miss Clara Lane was as bright, attractive and winsome as ever. Mr. Bigelow's comedy was greatly enjoyed. The opera was well staged, the costumes were notice able for bright colors. The company will be welcomed by large audiences when they again visit Helena. U and I To-Night. The Butte Miner has the following com plimentary notice of U and I, the play which opens to-night: "Maguire's opera house was crowded last night, and if-ap-. plause and laughter be any evidence of merit, 'U and I' is certainly a most meri torious performance. Instead of calling it a play tre management announce 'IT and I' as a laughing festival, and in this they are right. In their resp~ective speciralties, Irish and Dutch delineations, John T. Kelly and 'Dutch' IDaly are certainly a play in them selves. and would keep an audience in a roar for several hours. Ciustered abjut them are several singers and good burloadue actors, and they fill in the time to the great amusement, of an audience. There is no way to refer to the performance except in general terms, and that can be best done by saying that it is funny and that it pleased, the audience." Little Lord Fauntleroy. Little Lord Fauntleroy, appearing here next Friday and Saturday at Ming's opera house, is heralded by Manager Phil Ray, a gentleman who controls four or five leading attractions on the road. The star, Little Georgie Cooper, a child of nine years old, is acknowledged to be the greatest Fauntle roy in the/ world. Anyone witnessing her performance wonders how so small an infant can essay euccessfully so large a part, for Little Lord Faurtleroy is a far longer part than Hamlet. A special mat inee will be given Saturday afternoon for children. G reat Musicale. The celebrated Mendelssohn Quintette club with Miss Marie Barnard will appear at Ming's opera house )Dec. 8. The two new artista come with the very high recommen dations from the greatest schools of the old world. 'Ihis club has been before the public more than forty yea's and Miss llarnlardl needs no iitroduction to the Helena public. A n E,.ijoyable Party. Mrs. Annie Woodruff, one of the most eflicient teachers in the Hawthorne school, gave a sociable party at Mrs. Dr. Taylor's, 125 Broadway, last night. A large number of the teachers were present and partici pated in the festivities. Amnong those pres ent we,e: Mary Rickman, Nellie A. Ken yon, Nannie Woodman, Clare Avery, Alioe Ml. Williams, Mary E.
