The opening chapters of Mark Twain's new novel, the publication of which will begin in Sunday's INDEPENDENT, are at hand and give ample promise of a most delightful literary treat for our readers. The book opens with a breeziness and freshness that at once rivet the atten tion of the reader, and every paragraph sparkles with droll humor. As a special offer to persons living out of the city who are not now subscribers to THE IN DEPENDENT, we will send the SuNDAY INDEPENDENT by mail during the con tinuance of this story for seventy-five cents in advance. Persons living in the city who wish to get the opening chap ters should send in their orders for pa pers to be delivered by carrier it once. THE state irrigation convention which assembles in this city next week is at tracting wide-spread attention and in terest in it seems to be general. The Butte Miner eloquently says of it: The Montana irrigation convention, which will be held in Helena on the 7th of January, should bh thoroughly representa tire. Every delegate able to attend ought to be present. There should be no pioxies. Silver Bow connty has the largest repre sentation of any county in the state, and though she is looked upon as a mining county, not one of her delegates should be absent. Irrigation means everything to Montana. It means the dawning of an era of prosperity beyond the dreams of the most visionary enthusiast. It would make Montana the agricultural garden of the west, add millions of dollars to lher pro ductive domain, transform /arren wastes into blooming gardens, dot uninhabited valleys with cozy homes, and add to the glory of her mining supremanoy an agricul tural grandeur as permanent as time and as indestructible as the everlasting hills. In this great work of reclamation and transformation Silver Bow and every other county is interested, and the convention should be representative, publio spirited, enthnsiaatic end impressive. The problem to be discussed is'one upon the solving of which the future greatness of the state largely dependse. This is a broad and enlightened view. -No interest of our state will derive more 'benefit from the extension of our agri 'cultural area than the great mining industries. There is no reason why we 'should not feed our own people instead of sending millions of dollars out of the state every year to buy fruits, vegeta bles, etc., that could be grown profita bly and abundantly on our fertile soil 'with irrigation. A SIGNIFICANT fact is the admission of Chairman Clarkson, of the republi can national committee, that "tariff re form with local prohibition issues" are the explanation of democratic success at the November election in Iowa. Other republicans, probably not so well informed and certainly not so honest as Clarkson was in this instance, have maintained most strenuously that the sole cause of republican defeat in the Hawkeye state was the prohibition issue. Clarkson's acknowledgement that tariff reform has taken strong hold on the farmers of his state, and pre sumably on the farmers of other west ern states, is significant. It is equally true that the people of the east are be coming alive to the fact that the Mc Kinley tariff works to the profit of the few and to the cost of the many. Work ing men have not received the promised increase of wages, but manufacturers are piling up even greater profits than when their products were sold to their own employes for less money. The ad mission of Mr. Clarkson that the leaven of tariff reform is working mightily in the minds of the people is encouraging to the democrats. LONDONON Truth says the talk of Aus tralian loyalty to the British crown is all buncombe. The same paper strenu ously advocates the casting adrift of Canada by the mother oountry, claim ing that it would be better for both the Dominion and England. and adding that it is the manifest destiny of Canada to become a new United States, or at tached to the great republic. The ab sorption of the Dominion by the United States, the paper says, would give the Canadians energy and enterprise which no colonists can possess, and the only disadvantage they would suffer would be the fact that they would be trans ferred to the tender mercies of the In dian bureau, which, says the paper, "is probably the most corrupt and rascally institution on the face of the earth." THE mellowing influence of being out of office is well exemplified in the case of John James Ingalls, once a United :States senator from the state of Kansas. 8eoue in the posse.sion of the long ern ~ aalduoas "tribtne had srart itrhiih for man, friend r t thperienc a few short at H ast it hrstaesa o~a$f. a job" Ii tr * es awondertul mhaniu. en a prenth ibe paslduousl h wloying SiGote pbs reys in tie duloit snea of a gap ng dove. though formerly hn roaredi at iin with the fury of ianti un tamed lion. Tah verdict of the coroner's jury in vestigating the New York Central wreak at Hastings Christmas eve is timely. It censures the company for employing utterly incompetent men to perform the duties of responsible positions. The jury might have added that if this and other companies would pay living wages and-eatablish rules for the government of employes consistent with manhood there would be no necessity for employ ing incompetent persons. Qurri a large number of gentlemen who followed the remains of the late Senator Plumb to the grave, with down. cast eyes and solemn visage, are now engaged in an unseemly scramble for the position made vacant by his death. So far, the heirs of that good man have not iusti'tuted in public any quarrel over the division of his estate, but several persons are exceedingly anxious to be appointed his political residuary legatee. SEORiEARY BIAINi has been unusu ally active the last few days signing treaties of reciprocity with other coun tries. Up to the present time, however, he has not signed one with B. Harrison. In the language of Captain Mills the treaty which will probably be signed by these two gentlemen will contain a reci prooity provision that will "not reoip." REALLY this capital question is get ting to be a strain on the nervous sys tem. While the Inter Mountain is hav ing a hand to hand fight between Butte and Great Falls, the Anaconda Stand ard declares itself for Deer Lodge as against Bozeman. How sad it is to see the sweet bells jangled and out of tune. TuE influenza, now so prevalent in Europe, respects neither men nor ani mals. The king of Sweden and a host of others of the nobility are among its victims, and street car transportation in some of the European capitals is almost at a standstill from the same cause. TrHtRia will be three hundred and Sixty-six INDEPENDENTS this year, each a little better than the one that pre ceded it. Every employe of this paper has his day off, but THE INDEPENDENT never stops. That's the kind of a news paper we are. WE wish Miss Montana the compli ments of the season and a happy New Year. May the present year bring her as much prosperity as the last, and more. DON'T swear off to-day. It's a foolish annual practice. Just quit. THE BOOK TABLE. "Shall Girls Propose?" is the title of a prettily made and timely leap-year book just isseed in New York whose author hides his name under the nom de plume of "A Speculative Bachelor." Some of its chap ters, besides the leading one, are on "The Girl Who Refuses You," "About Kisses," 'Falling in Love," "Paying Attention," and "Engagements." It is a matter of some wonder what a bachelor knows about these various topics but the Kingston (N. X.) Express calls the essays "charming" and says they make "One of the pleas antest, well-written books we have seen in a long time." New York: Cassell Publish ing Co. A NEW YEAR'S 1DYL.

By the way, says a writer afore-quoted, as there is a good deal of illness in London just now and much influenza, which fastens its fangs most readily into those who have "irun down," I may mention that I was re cently advised that, on the first symptoms of one of those tiresome colds which so often precede an attack, a gleeass or two of champagne will ward it off.

'Two engineers and two pump rmon are the only employee at the mine. During the past two weeks there has been quite a lively correspondence between the Blout,sna trustees, H. M. Par chen and A. M1.

In conformity with this request Prof. P. Knobt will visit the mine Monday next and expert it. Just what the trustees will do with the volun tary ten cents assessment already put on, is not known, because money is needed to run the mine. The Helena trustees favor borrowing it from one individual. but they do not think so large a sum as $50,000 will be required. Do You Want a Fsrnlsleed House?

Of the propriety of this you can judge best. Formal report and recommendations will. go in early in January." The letter was in reply to one written by Mr. Power in regard to the location of the hatchery. Talking of the matter yesterday Mr. Power said he fully agreed with the commissioner as to leaving the selection of the site with him. He also said that h4 was in favor of giving the hatchery to th. site that offered the best advantages, THE POPULAR BELVIDERE. Dane McDonald has no.Cause to Complain of the Old Year. Among the business men in Helena who have no ill will against the year which closed yesterday, is Dane McDonald, pro prietor of the popular Belvidere House. Mr. McoDonald has seen the house grow in pop ularity every week during the past year, while his patronage has been coming from an ever-widening sircle. There has not been any element of look or chance abost it, save in the report that the house is most conveniently located. With this advantage, and the fact that the rooms inthpg elvidere are large, well-ventilated and excellently furnished, Mr. McDonald :has.,gone ahead and built up a bueinee of which any land lord might b - proud.. Uipder Mrs. McDonald's upervisipin the guest chambers have been so systematically attended to that there has been no room for complaint, but on.the other hand guests have gone away and ,sent their friends to the house. So with the dining department, Mrs. McDonald has carefully looked after that, had the services of a frst-olass cook, has kept a corpis of competent and attentive waiters, and it has come in for as much praise as the other department. That the Belvidere will get its share of the conven tion business in 1892 there is no question. and those who stop there will have no cause to regret their choice. The people of Hel ena, who recognize Dunc. McDonald's pub lic spirit, congratulate him on his past suc cess and wish him a greater in 1892. As is the custom the Belvidere house will set a New Year's dinner to-day. Those who are going to eat away from home, and who try the Belvidere, will have the following menu to choose from: Oysters, American Turtle Celery, horseradish, chow-cl. ,w.
