Mlnneapolli: Baldwin and Pals.ace, S coDermott, Butte; Leland Hotel i t' lEA MIINNG CONGRESS. SWhat has become of it? A few weeks ago our citizene were all rejoicing over h rii'ews from Denver that the next selon of the mining congress, one of te most important bodies that will as mble in the ensuing year, would be bld in Helena. Here was a great thing 4or Montana, beyond a doubt. Every body could see that at a glance. Our delegates, Messrs. Hauser, Holter, Ma iynis and others, came home from Dan ver and reported that the meeting of 1$92 would be attended by a thlousand or two representative mining men. and that incalculable good would result to o1tr own mining interests from the pres ence here of such a body. Weeks have ngone by, the temporary ebullition of ex l.atement over the event has subsided, ind, so far as we can learn, not a thing ,hat's been done toward preparing for the :meeting, which, if it is meagerly at p tended and badly accommodated, will 'do lasting injury to our state. Did o. l everybody's duty end when the invita tion from Montana was accepted? Are there no committees charged with the all-important work of thorough prepar ation for the convention? Are any measures being taken to see that the various mining districts of the state are interested in getting ready for a display of our mineral resources? Does our Board of Trade propose to have any thiing to do with the matter? If so, wljen ? In a word, do our people realize the niagnitude of the work that must be done to make the convention a success, and the importance of beginning prepar ations for it at once? Isn't it about time all hands were getting together for consultation. We do not know whose business it is to take the initiative, but obviously either our delegates to the Denver convention or an organization of our citizens, like the Board of Trade, should lead off. The credit of our state and city are at stake in this undertak ing, and we cannot afford to take any chances of failure. THE Louisville Courier Journal ex- presses the views of the large body of democrats in declaring it is not sufficient for the party in congress to propose a repeal of the McKinley law without offering a measure defining its own principles. "In the first place," it says, "this would take from the free list a number of articles which should not be taxed. There are other articles which should be free before sugar, but having free sugar democrats will not move to restore it." To go back to the old law of 1883, which was nearly as iniquitous as the McKinley bill, would also be ab surd. "Certain clearly defined princi ples," the Courier Journal well says, "should control all tariff legislation, whether democrats attack the tariff in detail or by a general bill. The first is that taxation is the highest prerogative of government and is to be exercised only in behalf of public purposes. The second is that taxation should bear as lightly as possible on those articles which lie at the base of our great indus tries. The third is that this exemp tion of materials entering into our great products must be balanced by corroes ponding low duties on the finished goods. These were the principles on which the Mills bill was formed; they are just, sound and essential." This is a good platform, and the party will not go far wrong if it keeps its feet on it. Gov. HUIMPHREY, of Kansas, has a delicate task to perform in selecting a successor to the late Senator Plumb. Naturally. the name of John J. I;galls suggests itself. lie is the ablest and most brilliant man in his state, and he was voted for by the republicans in their legislative caucus last winter. At the sauwe time, Mr. Ingalls was deprived of his seat in the senate by a popular uprising that swept the republican party in the state from power. Should Gov. Humphrey appoint him to the va cant seat it would be an act of defiance to the popular will that might bring serious consequences upon the party. The appointment of another republican would not be so marked an act of con. tempt. It is reported that the governor has under consideration the name of his particular friend Mr. Peck, the attorney of the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad company. That, too, would be an appointment that would rouse the wrath of the grangers, for railroad at torneys are in bad odor with the embat S tied farmers just now. Gov. Ium phrey's duty in the premises is by no means pleasant or easy. UNDER the circumstances we think Mr. Crisp made a mistake in not offer ing Mr. Mills the chairmanship of the ways and means committee. It would have been a graceful and courteous thing in him to recognize his chief com petitor by assigning him to the post he held in the last democratic house. Mr. dMlls was once before passed over when Speaker Carlisle made Mr, Morrison, 1.7 ~|lle' I.nior in service, chairman of 00e ..i me committee.

Wilbur Pisk Sanders opportunity to demonstrate his wonder ful popularity with the voters of Mon tana. But it will catch Commodore Power a long way from the home plate, as our base ball friends would say. SECRETARY EICINS was probably the first man in the United States to learn that Blaine did not want the presiden tial nomination in 1888. He is probably the first man who definitely knows in 1891 that Mr. Blaine will not be a candi date next year. It was Elkins who en. gineered Harrison's nomination three years ago and there is every indication that he will be chief engineer of the re nomination movement. WVATEV E else may be said of Stephen B. Elkins, he is a man of breadth of view enough to understand that there is such a part of the United States as the west. He understands the Indian question and the needs of the army, and he has the influence and abil ity to administer his office in the inter ests of the people of the west. And we miss our guess if be does not do it. MASSACHUSETTS continues to show strong democratic symptoms. Mayor Matthews was re-elected last week in Boston by 15,000 plurality, the largest ever given to any candidate. Like Gov. Russell he belongs to the young democ racy which is sweeping everything be fore it in the old Bay state. PRESIDENT HARRISON has an unusually small foot and the stocking he will hang up on Christmas eve will not be large, but if he finds that Blaine letter of declination in it, he will receive the biggest Christmas gift of any man in the United States. And we wouldn't won der if it were there. STrEPI'EN B. ELKIrs was born in Ohio, served as a delegate in congress from New Mexico, lives in New York and is credited to West Virginia as a cabinet officer. Yet the republican party is making a great fuss over Senator Brice, of Ohio, because he simply has a house in New York. THE talk that the republican majority in the United States senate will be des perate enough to declare Gov. Iill's seat in that body abandoned is all rub bish. It is probably started to make the governor surrender his chair to Jones and hurry to Washington, but it won't work. THE conclusion of the deal for the sapphire field insures the early exten sion of the new railroad across the val ley. By the time spring opens Helena will begin to feel the benefit of new en terprises with blood in them. UNT.ESS it is blocked by the corpora tion lawyers in the senate, there will be an early settlement of the mineral land question. The house of representatives will legislate in the interests of the people. A Quick Retort. "Archbishop Ryan was dining with George W. Childs the other day," remarked a Philadelphia gentleman to a New York Herald reporter, "and the usual Philadel phia dinner party was present-Wayne MacVeagh and the rest. There is a certain dining set in Philadelphia, four-fifths of whom form almost every crivate dinner of prominence. You give me the name of the dinner giver and the number of guests and I'll call the turn on who were present. Well, of course, MacVeagh was present at this dinner, and the ex-attorney-general sat next to the archbishop. During the even ing the subject of railway passes was brought up, very naturally, when the arch bishop said he had never traveled on a rail road pass in all his life, and had never been offered one. Of course, this singular state ment attracted the attention of Colonel McClure, Clayton McMichael. Wayne Mac Veagh and the rest, and caused a general smile of wonderment. "'Why, my dear archbishop,' said Mac Venagh, 'you have missed one of the real pleasures of life, as she is known in Phila delphia.' "'The sensation of traveling on a pass would certainly be new to me." said his grace. "'1'11 have to see Mr. George W. lloyd of the Pennsylvania road about this,' said MacVeagh, 'and use my influence toward having this oversight corrected.' "'Really,' replied the archbishop, 'I-' "'Oh, that's all right.' interrupted Mac Veagh. 'You can use your influence to get me a pass over the road you are supposed to control in a mreasure.' "'Ah, my dear sir,' retorted his reverence with a mock lugubs ions look, 'I have no con trol over or influence with the managers of any road you are likely to travel.'" THE GOO1) THEY HAVE DONE. WYork Accomplished by the Helena Work. lig WVomanl's Hloano. On Jan. 11, 1892, the Working Woman's h ome will complete its second year, and to all who have taken an interest in its wel fare and success, but particularly to those who have questioned its need in our midst and have been skeptical as to the good it is accosulishing, we, the board, present these brief statistics, earnestly requesting a lair judgment on the facts. Since its opening sevenity-two persons have found a home in tlhe institution, eighteen married ones, forty-one single women and thirteen chil dren. Among these were teachers, stenog renphers, typewriters, nurses, seamstresses and domestics. Many of these were in straitened circumstances and were helped until they could help themselves; some were sick and were cared for, while all the children were made as comfortable and happy as they would have been in the homes of their parents. 'those of the in mates who were reared in good and cul tured homes and were capable of appre ciating something far better were warmest in their praises of the management of the home and expressed deep gratitude that when they came among strangers they found aoh a home to enter. T'Ihese few statements, we fondly hopre, will Influence those who have hitherto withheld their aid and sympathy, and nr courage those who have before given liber ally of good words and deeds to now use their influence and means to make our on tertalnment on Christmas night a financial asuccess.

B. ith eo a master of ceremonies as well as toastmaster, When the company were all assembled in the big hall, all stood up and sung "Amer. its." Then Mr. Keith oalleu on Judge Cor nielus Hodges to mako the opening address. Judge Hedges took for his subject "Yankee Inventions," After referring to the prog ress of inventions and inventive genius, he said New England had been far in the lead in snch matters. Connecticut had gener ally been foremost, with Massachusetts and Rhode Island close behind. Inventions credited to other states were in great meas ore tte production of the universal Yankee, who in search of the main chance had gone everywhere with advancing settlement and had never lost his penchant for contriving some new device to save labor or multiply its finits. "We ale told," he continued, "that ne cessity is the mother of invention. She proved largely such in New England, and a mother of good Puritan stoek. It is easier to trace the parentage in the mater nal line, yet in this instance, at least, the free school system of New England, pro vision for which was laid on the Mayflower, was the father of invention. Every boy, whether rich or poor, in town or country, had enough education to awaken his intel lect and give it an impulse to action. The groundwork was laid broadly in the general mechanical instinct, and when the time came to turn it to account for productive industries it seemed to flash all over New England. If any more favored locality succeeds in producing anything better or cheaper than it has heretofore been pro duced in New England, forthwith a new levy'is ordered upon the inventive genius of her sons to make a new advance and dis tance competition. It is a magnificent spectacle, worthy of the world's admiration as well as gratitude, for all the world shares in the fruits of her victories. And while New England has grown rich from her inventions and manufactures she has contributed to the rest of the world more than she had retained for herself. All honor then the Yankee inventions. May their numbers and shadows never be less. Other sections of this great country may have broader fields, mines of coal, iron, copper, silver and gold, grander rivers and forests, and more congenial climate, but as long as New England leads the world in inventive genies, she will never lose her foremost position, influence and power in shaping the destinies of this great republic of the world. Though the exports of her natural products may have p dwindled to granite and ice, in the awakened and quickened perceptive and inventive faculties of her sons are broader and richer fields and more productive and exhaustless mines of more useful and precious metal than in all the world be- e: sides." The address was liberally applauded, and at its conclusion. Mrs. Blake and Mrs. t Avery favored the company with a duet. Another song by a quartette, to the tune of "Glory Hallelujah," served to whet the ap- t) petites of all present for the good things e before them. The spread consisted of plenty of everything familiar to New Eng lenders, in which baked beans, pumpkin b pie and cider cut a good figure. It was heartily enjoyed. After the dishes had been amply dis cussed, the regular toasts were proposed by Mr. Keith. They were: "New England's r, Contribution to Good Government," re- n sponded toby Judge Knowles; "The Min ute Men of New England." by Judge Blake; "The Relation of the Blue Laws to the Wooden Nutmegs," by E. C. Itussell; "The Continental Army," by Major G. W. Baird; "The Home of Molly Stark," by Miss Ella Knowles; "The Land of the Fighting Quakers," by W. C. Child; "The Heroes of the Green Mountain," by Rev. F. D. Kelsey. There were other im promptS toasts, and thegathering broke up at a late hour after a good night's enter tainment. IN ALL SEASONS. A lusilness Whicll Is Up to the Times the Year Around. n' It is the custom for a great many houses H to make during the weeks preceding Christ- tb mas extra preparations, and to offer extra inducements to purchasers during that time. This is in many cases necessitated le by the fact that those referred to make a specialty of goods intended almost wholly bi for the holiday trade. But the grocers do or not have to do this, and one among them 0a has holiday goods and does a big business a through all the seasons. The house re- tl fer red to is that of Turner ,- Co., whose reputation for the best goods is too well F, known in Ilelena to necessitate mention. Ladies who want anything extra nice in the grocery line foe the Christmas dinner if they will call at the store .will flud that Tumner & Ca, have it. To Farimers.
