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
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
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.
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.
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.

Don Dickinson is called the Jenneas Mil

President Harrison is fond of the theater
and has become one of the most regular
first-nighters in Washington. He appreci

at a humorous hit.
Lord Salisbury, as prime minister of Eng

Dr. Phillips Brooks cannot be persuaded
to wear a bishop's ring or any other jewelry
on his fingers. The new bishop of Massa

The Bean Brummel of New York's mid

very closely, wears his clothes well and is
altogether a model for a metropolitan

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

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

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

Under the cross-examinatiou of the court
he was thrown Into ai spnasm, and he was or

Jew Jake Liable to Keep His Leg uand Oat
Well Also.
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.
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
G reat Musicale.
The celebrated Mendelssohn Quintette
club with Miss Marie Barnard will appear
at Ming's opera house )Dec. 8. The two new

public more than forty yea's and Miss
