Te opening chapters of Mark Twain's *iqnadvl, the publication of Wvhih will bian i. Sunday's INUtEPENDN sT, are at Sd aund give ample promise cf a most iligshttul literary treat for our readers. The bpok opens with a breeziness and ~eshness that at once rivet the atten tion of the reader, and every paragraph parklea with droll humor. As a special ter to persons living out of the city are not now subscribers to THE IN ap.panaTr,, we will send the SUNDAY I-avP..cDENT by mail during the con tibonuance of this story for seventy-five cents in advance., Parsons living in the tiry who wibh to got the opening chap teir should send in their orders for pa pers to be delivered by carrier at once. GENTLEMEN about to make wills I bould be warned against certain habits i and practices which may result in pro ':tracted litigation, after their death, among disappointed heirs. Mr. Schuy ler Skaats, a worthy old Knickerbocker of New York, died recently leaving a million and his will is contested among other reasons because he "committed many verses to memory which he sung or recited uhsolicited in company; he kept a diary; he snored in church;" but 1 what most overwhelmingly and conclu sively established his insanity in the Smipds of disappointed relatives, "Skaats repeated the same puns so often that it became tiresome." This last allegation is by far the most serious one and we rejoice that if Skaats could not be pun ished-for.his atrocious puns in this life he is meeting his, reward after death. The case against Sknats is conclusive enough, Charles M. Weatherbee, pro prietor of the Buckingham hotel, de poses that every morning for years the wretched Skaats accosted him with "How is the Weatherbee?" Mr. Fuller, partner of the witness, swears that on leaving the dining ronm Skaats would say to him "Are you any fuller than `when you went in?" He wasasked this *quiestion regularly for nine years. We sincerely hope that the court will de oide that Skaats was stark, staring mad -and will give away his property to people to whom he didn't want to leave a cent and furthermore that it will lay down a broad general principle that every pun ster is a howling lunatic who should have his possessions taken away from .him even in life. THE statement of the mugwump pa pers that Representative Stevens of Massachusetts, who has been appointed a member of the ways and means com mittee by Speaker Crisp, is a stiff pro tectionist, is authoritatively denied by the Ainorican Wool and Cotton lie porter. The I:eporter says that pre vious to the autumn of ].889 President Whitman, of the national association of wool manufacturers, had assured the public that he could count upon the fingers of a single hand all the woolen manufacturers in the United States who were in favor of free wool. The Re porter doubted this sweeping assertion and to test its accuracy sent out two pe titions to congress -one in favor of free wool and the other in favor of reduced dities. The first name on the petition for free wool was that of Jesse Metcalf, the well known manufacturer of Provi dence. The second name was that of Mr. Stevens and it was followed by the signatures of 530 other woolen manufac turers and merchants. Mr. Stevens, ac cording to the Reporter, believes in a slight tariff on manufactured woolens but will be a staunch advocate of free wcol in congress. There is not a high protectionist democrat on the ways and means committee. Indeed, there is not such a democrat in congress. Some of the men appointed to the committee by Speaker Crisp were not entitled by rea son of ability or party service to the dis tinction conferred upon them, but so far as the cause of tariff reform is con cerned the committee is all right. PRESIDENT IHARRISON'S protest against the evil of gerrymandering, it will grat ify him to know, will be promptly heeded by the Now York legislature, both houses of which by yesterday's decision of the court of appeals, will be demo cratio. A re-apportionment bill will be promptlypassed and it will give the democratic party or that state, which has long been defrauded of fair repro sentation, tardy justice. Mr. Harrison's friend, Senator Hiscock, will be suc coaeded by a democrat next year. Now for Connecticut I That is another state *here the infamous gerrymander has ebnabled the republicans to get two seats I ir ts~ United States senate which right. .:,a ,[ blonaged to the demooratic major- 1 report. ate doing nmuth to disabuse th. ,eet.rn nmind am to the quality of Mona, tana w*etber. We saugest that the dia semnteator of weather lore at Washing. ton, 1). 0,, could be more specific in his reports to good alvantage. The term "northwest" is toogeneral. If the Da kotas or Minnesota happen to have a blizzard, as they do, not infrequently, it is exasperating to read in Eie New York t papers that "the storm originates in the northwest and extends from the Rocky mountains to the lakes.", We get credit in the eastern press for it great assort ment of weather that we do not have. And our winter climate is really one that the people of the Atlantic states would enjoy, so much superior is it to their own. Tint Board of Trade meeting to-night will be one of the utmost importance and should be turned into a citizens' mass meeting. The question ot prepar ing for the three conventions of next year will come up and committees are to be appointed tolook after the various bodies. The most important of these is the Mining congress. The local mem bers of the A. O. U. W. and the Mon tana Sons of Veterans are looking after the interests of their respective organi zations, but there is no constituted body to take the work of the Mining congress in hand. Let our business men, who are in the habit of staying religiously away from Board of Trade meetings, break their rule for once and come to this last meeting of the year. THAT auditorium question ought to be settles at to-night's meeting of the board of trade. The building is needed for the great assemblages of the coming summer and every dollar spent on it will be richly repaid in the benefit it will bring to the city. TIlE SHADOWGRAPHER. Lieutenant Governor J. E. Rickards came over from Butte on business yesterday and incidentally dropped into the executive office but found nothing to demand his at tention. He says the burying of heap roasts drove away the most offensive fea tuoes of the smoke and that it will be ex ceedingly dangerous for anyone to renew that process. The smoke in Butte now is no more of a nuisance than the smoke of any large city. The governor has recently returned from the east where he found bus ness greatly improved. The money market is much easier. He heard good things about Montana and is sure that the coming year will bring prosperity. When asked about his rumored candidacy for governor on the republican ticket the governor winked the other eye and smiled. The children of our public schools should rise in height several inches when they learn from Judge Biokford that they furnished the best educational exhibit at the teachers' association at Bozeman. It is suggested to the judge that a prize for the best school map of Montana would bring forth a striking feature in Montana's educational exhibit at the World's fair. The death of Jacob Severance at Oka on Monday will be learned of with surprise and regret by business men in this city. Ten days ago he was thrown from a wagon, his head striking the ground. He steadily grew worse until death resulted. Mr. Sev eranca was one of the most progressive and iateltl*nt citizens in the state. He was a leading spirit in the proposed railroad to Castle, a heavy owner in the Cumberland, as well as one of the largest sheep owners in Montana. He was fifty years old and leaves a son, Charles and a wife. Senator Goddard, of Billings, was also in the lobby of the Helena. He says that the Abstlers are daily growing more numerous in the southern part of the state near the Wyoming line and there are signs of far more serious trouble than has yet been ex perienced. The ranchmen in the immdiate vicinity of Billings are not anticipating dif ficulty and yet they are not sure when the rustlers may run off their stock. There are several well known citizens of this class living at Red Lodge, which, by the way, is a very immoral town just now. The Sena tor says there is but one way to deal with t ICeiin ; that is for the cattle men to organize a , os+,', capture and hang them, aswas done .It the lusr.eishell country several years Rr,. ' Lev are so numerous in Northern \VWoring that it is very difficult to punish theta. J. C. -Johnson, who is in chaige of tha largest crttle enterprise in the country, told the senator that he found rustlers among men whom he esupposed he could trust best, and that when, at his own ex pense, he had brought thieves to officers of the law in Colorado they could not be convicted because the jurymen were afraid of their lives. The same conditions agpear to exist in Northern Wyoming and Southern Montana. A prominent republican who saw Com modore Power. Lieut.-Gov. Rickards and Senator Goddard in very close conference Inst evening thought be sniffed politics in the atmosphere. "What sort of a combina tion would this make?" he said, "Rickards to be nominated for governor, Goddard to go to the United States senate and both to unite their forces to return Powor at the expiration of his term. Of course, this necessarily includes the election of a re publican legislature. ]ut see the locic. The Mantle-Warren-Irvin crowd will knife Power at every opportunity and therefore if he is to have strength on the west side it must come from the Conch-Rickards ele ment. It is pretty certain that Couch does not want anything, but Rickards is known to be ambitious. It is even more certain that Couch can swing mole votes than any republican on the other side of the range. Now, then Power needs an ally in eastern Montana and Goddard is by far the best politician in that. section, and one of the best in Montana. The scheme would be to keep the gubernatorial nomination and sen atorship away from Helena in order to kill the usual cry of Helena's avarice. I know that Power is after the scalp of Sanders be cause the latter has gone out of his way to snub the commodore and belittle him at Washington." ltalis All the Time. P(rm'l',rTIn, Ore., Dec. 30.-Unusually heavy rains have fallen in western Oregon during the past three days, causing a rapid rise in the Willamette river. Merchants along the water front of this city are pre pared to move their goods to higher grounds. If the raincontinues twenty-four hours longer much damage will result along the lowlands. emrm so y being . n laroer thn ayusal an even larbr the l I ar t ite } ýoto1 eLg year. The volume of trde measure b leargsof the various cities outside of New York was six per oedt. uore than last year for the first half f Desrber, and later reo. t show anu iorease of shout stin per en. 'IThbsmuementot iodnodt cohb tinues extraordinary, in spite of the faot that it is retarded in many western states by wet weather and bad country roads, and even nore by the car famine, all roads east bound being blocked by the avalanche of fNe ght offered, It is said that the loosk Island alone has 5,000 caf , tied up near Chicago or on 'eastern roads, and other western railroads ate troubled In the same way. Bnt this very blooka2o is proof that an enormous business is in orogresa, and the marketing of products prepares the way for larger distribution of morehandise. Reports from other cities show less com plaint as to collections, and a large trade in progress. Boston reports quiet whole sale trade in dty goods, but retailers are doing a big business, and shoe mangifac tarers still have orders to keep them busy. Leather is steady and- hides quiet. Iron manufacturers talk more encouragingly and the money markets are firmer. At Pittsburgh trade is unusually good in all lines, with iron and steel manufacturers more hopeful, and thhe glass trade fairly good. At Chicago sales and collections of merchandise exceed last year's, in spite of soft country roads, and the holiday trade is phenomenal: receipts of wheat, corn and rye are double last year's, of dressed beef three times last year's, increase in flour is a third, in cured meats a quarter, and in oats, barley and cattle large, notwithstanding the complaints of car famine throughout the west. Money is easy and demand good. At St. Paul, in spite of the unseasonable weather, jobbing trade is good and retail trade very active, and at Minneapolis the cut of lumber for the year is 450,000,000 feet, the output of flour 201 000 barrels against 139,000 last year, and the general feeling confdent. At Omnaha trade is good though money is close. Southern cities report less cheerfully, the low price of cotton causing dullness at Memphis and Galveston, and also at Savan nah. But, at New Orleans business is more active and larger in volume, though cotton receipts are heavy and sugaris fairly active, with money in strong demand. The great industries close the year with more than usual activity, even the woolen mills having orders enough to keep them fairly employed, and a number have: re cently started, but none shut down. Cot ton manufacturers find a good demand, and numerous enlargements of plants are re ported. Shoe factoriescomplain that usual orders are lacking, and yet they are fairly active. Paper mills are bpsy and arc mak ing many additions of' machinery end buildings. he iron.manufacture has Seen turning out more pig than ever before, though some Works stop for the holidays, and the tone of the market is stronger, with rather, more demand for finished products. The stock market has been stronger with an advance of $1.25 for the week. The new railroads built in 1891 cover 4,1r8miles, making 171,000 in operation. Exports con tinue enormous, for three weeks of Decem ber fronr New York exceeding last year 35 per cent., and remittances abroad having closed, foreign exchange is heavy and de clines to $4.83/. The t:easury has paid out $1,400,00 more money than it has taken in during the week, although receipts of internal revenue are large; for the month more than $8,200,009. Money is plenty and cheap, and there is a general feeling that favorable conditions will continue for some months. The business failures occurring through out the country during the last six days, as reported to R. G. Dun &.Co., the mercantile agency. by telegraph, number, for the United States, 257, and for Canad,, thirty-five, or n total of 292, as compared with totals of "l3S last week, and 320 the week previous to the last. For the corresponding week of last year the figures were 333, representing 303 failures in the United States and thirty in the dominion of Canada. MARRIED AT TEN. Cruel Treatment of a Baby Wife by as Itallan. NEW YOnK, Dec. 30.-The trial of Gio vanni Lavighei, a young Italian, upon a charge of assault in the second degree, pre ferred against him by Francisca Lavighei, which occupied most of the time in the the Queens county court at Long Island City, brought out testimony as to the custom of early marriages in Italy. The accused was arrested in the fl at instance by officers of the society for the prevention of cruelty tochil dren, he having been discovered to be living with the complainant, who is but 11 years old. Francisca has pretty features, but on the witness stand appeared ill. The story she told with tears in her black eyes, was that little mo:e than a year ago her mother died in Italy, where Francisca then resided. - Soon after her father brought her to this country and told her she must marry Glo vanni Laviehei or he would kill her. On Jan. 26 last Lavighei took her to East New York, where an Italian priest married them. They then went to live mn Maspeth, where the cruel treatment was inflicted. She said Lnviehei had often locked her in a room without food or fire, and had tied 1 her hands behind her back. A policeman from Brooklyn took her to that city and she had been in charge of the society since then. Medical testimony was given to show the extent of the injuries the girl had re ceived. lo his own defense Lavighei swore that he had used no threats or force to compel the girl to marry him. He paid her passage from Italy to this country for the purpose of making her his wife. He ex hibited i gold chain and locket which he had given the child the day they wore mar ried. 'Ihe jury found Lavighei guilty of assault in the second degree. Judoe G(ar rattson granted a stay to allow application I to be made to the supreme court for a new trial, and Lavlghel was admitted to bail pending a decision. MESSIAIt C(AZ F ItEv I VED).
