Christmas week in the London court cal- o endar has nut yet been announced. C THr Salt Lake Tribune is quite right I in prophesying the ignominious failure t of any attempt to unseat Brice and i Hill. n How would this ticket suit the repub licans of Montana: For governor, J. E. Rickarde; for lieutenant governor, Gen. Charles S. Warren. IT is hoped that Cyrus W. Field will 1 not live to see his son incarcerated in Sing Sing. though the young man doubt- n less deserves that punishment. IT looks like a green Christmas in p Helena. This, however, will have no con- t nection with fat graveyards, for Helena p has the healthiest of all climates. t SENATOR BRICE and Governor-Elect v McKinley are among the Ohio victims f of la grippe. Nothing in the shape of t grip has fallen to the lot of Foraker this c season, though he has tried hard to I catch it. i TWENTY-HIX divorces were turned out in two hours and twenty minutes in t Chicago last week. This record should i. remove all lingering doubts about the business enterprise of the windy city by I the lake. I REPUIrr1CAN newspapers will find David B. Hill as effective in thwarting the schemes of a republican majority in the United States senate as in the gerrymandered republican legislature of New York. THE. entertainments in the Star course this year have been of unusual excel lence. As the star attraction in the list we suggest Sir Edwin Arnold, who is now giving a course of readings in e western cities. SENATOIR QUAY was kind enough to announce the other day that he would not be a candidato for re-election. To the people of Pennsylvania the an. nouncement is of no interest. They decided some time ago what to do with him. _ Ton only room left for the political ambitions of Jones of New York will be found in a very cheap South American republic. By extra.rdinary application and a proper expenditure of freight hbe might there rise to the dignity of path master. THE real estate transfers Cf Lo to the government during lthe pcst three years cover more than 23,00dr,n)O0 acrcs, rand. there is still enough rorrnr left on reser vations for all the Ildians in trhe coun try, humanitarians to the coitrary not' withstanding. A cr.InrL suggests in tre Suni that the name New York be chang.ed to Nork. In view of the recent successes of that town in securing the World's fair, buiil ing the Grant monument, and getting national conventions, we think Work would be more signilicant and encour aging. A S.EATO' when asked why President Harrison had not appointed a United States judge to succeed the late udge Sawyer, said that the president was waiting until Stanford arrived. This explanation will not be wholly satisfac tory to Montana candidates for that position. Mr. Russell Harrison, a Mon tanian, is in Washington and is sup posed to have quite as r;muh iulluence a with the administrationu as Senator Stanford or any other republican.

Other men in public life were more polished and scholarly, and perhaps possessed more of the qualities of statesmanship, but none excelled him in that saving com mon sense which men call sagacity, and which made him so true an interpreter of the public will. Few states have been better served in the halls of con gress than was.Kansas by Preston B. Plumb. He was courageous, indus trious, indefatigable. He knew the necessities and the sentiments of his people and he stood up for them even against the party whip. He was first of all a western man, true at all times to the every interest of the section in which his lot was oast. The people of Montana, whose steadfast friend he was, join sincerely in the common sorrow at his untimely death. STOP THE; CHINESE. It would be hard to find a more in- ` effective or useless law than the Chinese a restriction act. Its provisions, if car- v ried out, would accomplish the neces sary purpose, but either through lack of I vigilance on the part of government o officers or their complete inability to en- b force the measures, it has become a travesty. So easy is it to avoid the pro hibitory clause that Chinamon instead of crossing the border along Washing- p ton and Montana, a journey where de- v tection results only through the aid of n lightning or other circumstances b quite as fortuitous, they choose to travel h over the Canadian Pacific to Toronto or tl one of the cities along the St. Lawrence s and then cross to the American side. This route is easier and avoids the ne co.sity of a long wagon ride in one of t the northwestern states. It would ti occur to the reader that a healthy e: Chinaman would be a rather ditlicult piece of merchandise to smuggle, but apparently this is accomplished with the same security and secrecy employed e in transferring a piece of lace or a dia- q mond. For instance, we read that a b fair average is one capture in fifty and d that they are smuggled in bands of c from ten to 100 each. At Brockville, a t small Canadian city on theSt. Lawrence ' noear Ogdeusburg a train recently landed a 100 Chinamen at the warehouse on the k wharf. They disappeared during the t night and presumably were well on the ( way to New York the next morning. If n the law cannot be enforced along a well tl populated river front, with many depu- a ties watching, how is it possible to ex- t pect enforcement at any point of the border. p Another question recently raised and c which is likely to prove an important F feature in the application of the law is i: the claim made by Chinamen, when a caught, of being subjects under the q British empire. They claim residence x in Hong Kong which is under British a government. It is evident that congress must give ° this matter serious consideration. The n law should be either repealed altogether d or remode'ed so as to make it effective. I, If the present system continues, out- i breaks against the Chinese and serious a riots will occur. S,~gns of such results a have already appeared in several west ern cities and it is probable that citizens who are subjected to the bad features c which the law is intended to prevent, a but fails, will take the law in their own a hands. Early legislation on this subject is badly needed. A Tellerrfot's P'redicament. A young man last summer essayed to de scend from the red mountain crag which rears its umber head above the little station of Wagon Wheal Gap, Col., and does not care to risk the chaffing that that poor fel low got. lie had climbed up to the top of t the cliff, as adventurous and sight-loving youth will sometimes do, and about four o'clock in the evening essayed to come down, and in about half an hour, after a rough experience in rolling, slipping and struggling downward, found himself cling ing to the face of the cliff at a point where he could heither go up nor down. He was fairly treed and perforce began to wake the echoes calling for help. A mile away. to the Hot iprings hotel, one came riding in hot haste. A man had fallen from the cliff and broken his leg, and the doctor should come at once; and there was a hurrying to and fro, and a chorus of exclamations and a great stir among the guests, and the doctor was off like the wind, and numerous lights could be seen afar climnbing the monntain, and when the help reached him he was neither dead nor dying, had no broken limb nor strained arm or ankle, but was simply rock-bound, entirely unable to help himself. Above him was the perpendicular clilf, below a narrow overhanging shelf of rock and a fall of thirty feet to the broken stones be low, with a nossible roll all the way to the bottom of the mountain. Those mountain folk are rough jesters; when they found that he was unhurt they began to chaff him unmercifully. 'they told him they had brought candles to have a wake; that he should have a first class funeral; that they didn't see what he could do but just to drop off over the shelf and take his chances and be done with it. But kind hearted, as they always are, one of their number climbed up under the pro jecting shelf of rock, not a firm hold with one hand, outstretched his other arm to give what aid he could, and the others stood below to catch him ias he fell, ani thus, if possible, save his life; and he waes directed to back over the cliff crawhlor fashion, face downward, swing of, aed then hang on like grim death. This droe, the nearest mlan, with his outstretellhe.i arm, grabbed his feet and placed thenm upon his shouldels, and the poor follow lit go to find himself the noet moment con valslvely grabbilreg the neck and lshou!dets of his rescuer, and somnebow he slid down to the others with',ut broken bones. liBunt Show he was chaffed and ridiouled! Ie fled away in the darkness and was not seen Sagain for days.-Forest and Stream. IaUtea s.bstovtihe r, en4d the testr ap**estr thoR s yiie4b 'r~oatinmes ape4rs aniistage in minor roe. His byhM? Henry Crip, who died about teP yeape age, wasE an atorof piromise, and had at are timle been connected witb John .'. por4'e oompany in 8aitimore, Judge OrCip i. said to have.had a line stage presence, but however that war be, he is certainly a prominent flRre now on the rational siege. A notice of Gen. Frank Armatrong's beautiful daughter recalls the fact that her father, though in sympathy with the con. federates, once had to fight against them from the union side. When the war broke out his regiment was near Washington, and he was ordered along with it in haste to meet the confederate forces. He could not resign on the field, and was obliged to fight against his friends. As soon as the engagement was over he left the federal service and cast his lot with the south. Timothy B. Blackstone, who for thirty years has been president of the Chicago & Alton railroad, is said to be the only rail way president in the country who owns a majority of the stock in the road he man ages. ,le is a very cultivated man taking pleasure in reading the French and German classics and delving into the abstruse field of the higher mathematics, but his greatest pleasure, it is said, is to get out with a corps of his company's surveyors and run a line for them as he used to do in his younger days. The Parisian billiardist, Albert Gamier, once the champion of America, has just made Frank C. Ives, the phenomenal Michigan billiard player, an offer of $20 a day for six months to exhibit his skill with the cue to French audiences. Gamier is said to.be well to do nowadays. When he went back to France from his American trip, some years ago, he carried with him $13,000 as his profits, and opened a small cafe in Brussels. He is now the richest billiard expert in the world except, perhaps, Maurice Daly. In a sermon on profanity delivered in Chicago last Sunday Rev. Dr. Martin said that swearing was the characteristic accom plishment of the American nation. "When visiting a mill," said the reverend gentle man, "one can see the value of one dam, hat only folly in the hundred damns he hears from the fishermen on the banks of the stream." But Dr. Martin should con sider that there are occasions which of themselves palliate the offense of strong language. When his illustrious namesake, Dr. Martin Luther, hurled the inkstand at the Father of Lies he would have been jus tified in accompanying the missile by an emphatic expletive. New York's Little Marquis. Like Little Lord Fauntleroy, New York contains to-day another important little chap who will one day be, this time, a roar. quis, says the New York World. He is a blonde, too, but too old for curls, and he 1 doesn't talk with the grocer around the corner, for his mamma is not poor, but is the Marquis Helen San Marzano, who lives in luxury in a stately apartment at a Fifth avenue family hotel, the Bristol. Little Robert, 11 years old, is grand-nephew to a king, Amadeus of Aosta, who held the throne of Spain from 1870 to 1873. The Queen Marie was sister to his great.grand mother. He belongs to Company Eight of the Berkeley battallion, is a bright scholar, a good bicyclist, and doesn't look as though his digestion of family pride inter fered with his fun in the least. The grand mother, now living in a small town near Turin, Italy, was once ambassadress to the court of Prussia, at Berlin, and a life-size portrait of that beautiful woman now hangs in oneof the rich drawing room filled with costly furnishings, of his mother, the Mar quise Helen San Marzano. His father, the present Marquise San Marzano, is a nephew of Cardinal San Marzano, of Rome, and first cousin to General San Marzano, com mander in chief of the Italian forces at Massewab, in the late African war. His mother, Marquise Helen, was a MissGillin der of New York, another illustration of lovely American women who have married in the nobility. She is a devout Catholic, and in one of her apartments has fitted up a shrine to the Virgin, where tapers burn throughout the day and night, shaded by costly Bohemian glass. The rooms contain a quantity of rich vases, fine paintings, Im norted furnishings and gems of art from all over the world. 'they face on Fifth avenue and are the ideal surroundings of the Mar quise, who is also a devoted mother. The Bierkeley school is non-sectarian, and rep resmnts most of the millionaire families of the state. He is considered a bright scholar, belongs to the Legion of honest batallion, is tall, well built, unaffected and altogether a striking example of sensible American training, a very promising lad. How Isabies Are Named. A Hiudoo baby is named when ,t is twelvw days old and usually by the mother. Sometimes the father wishesq another name than that selected by the mother. In that case two lamps are placed over the two names, and the name over which the lamp burns the brightest is the one given to the child. In the lEgyptian family the parents choose a name for their baby by lighting three wax candles; to each of these they give a natae, one of the three always belonging to omeiedeilled personage. 'The candle that burns the longest bestows the name upon the baby. The Mohamemedans sometimes write desirable names on liver shtls of paper and these they place in the K(orau, The name upon the firt slip drawn out is given to the child. The children of the Almen, a people liv ing il nortlhern Japrian, do not receive their names until they are live years old. It i I the father who then chloses h0 name by whiichli the chiild is afterward called. Thile Chinese give their boy babiet a narme in addition to their surnameCs, and they must call themss'jlves by thetsm limeea until they are 211 years old. At that age the father gives his son a new n:tnme. The Chinese care so little for their girl babies that they do not give themo a baby name, but just call them Naumbor Ou, Number ITwo, Number Three, according to, their birth. BIoys are thought so much mnore of in China than girls aire that if you naek a Cii inese father, who has both a boy and a girl, how many clld.on li hhas he will always reply: "Only one child." German parents sonmetimnn change the namo of their baby if it is ill, and the Jap aneat are said to change the name of a child four tiimes.--Now York Morning J curnll. tr i t for the Capit -, At the Blozeman board of trade meeting,, last week, a coulmittee was aepointed to Slook after the capital question for Boz, en 1m.
