WESTERN conventions have been de cided upon; western candidates may be next in order. CoMMODORE PowErt, Colonel Sanders and Justice Field have revived the old art of letter writing in an interesting and entertaining style. THE Chinese will begin the celebra tion of their New Year festivities next week, just as if they intended to re main in this country as long as it lasts. THE Butte Miner says if it had its way it would wipe Chili, as a nation, from the face of the map. Leave the youngster alone; with the aid of another 'civil war it will.wipe itself out. THE white winged dove of peace once more rules. The Chilian war is over, hostilities have ceased in southern Kansas, Garza has been lost to view and the Butte newspaper war is ended. REPUBLICAN politicians who predicted a riot in the big democratic majority in thoe house are becoming very weary. The democrats are not furnishing cam paign ammunition for the republicans this year. THE New York World strikes a key note when it says that no one can reach an intelligent understanding of the national political situation who does not understand the political sentiment of 'the west." THE Denver Republican pertinently suggests that Senator Stanford experi ment with a two per cent. loan of part of his fortune on California farm lands before he asks for a government loan of $100,000,000 for that purpose. A FRENCH syndicate offers the Argen tine republic 850,000,000 for a ten years' monopoly of the sale of matches and to bacco in that country. If the offer is not accepted the end may be reached by sending a few smart French politicians to establish a Chinese wall tariff in that country. THE leaders of the mob that recently killed a Kansas sheriff not only order the resignation of Judge Botkin, but announce that the governor must con sult their wishes before he appoints a successor. It now only remains for these men to draw lots to find which will succeed the governor.' Duniac the trial of the Mackay Stokes suit in New York a letter from Mr. Mackay was produced in which he remarked: "The only way to beat Jay Gould is to let him alone." This is good advice and might be employed to advantage by the Harrison organs with reference to Blaine. THrAr misguided humanitarian, El bridge T. Gerry, objects to the repeal of that portion of the New York execution law prohibiting newspaper reporters from attending, on the ground that re ports of execution are always exagger ated and of Len wholly untrue. The ab surdity of this objection should be a suf ficient reason for the repeal of that clause. MAx O'RIELv says that if he could be born again with the right to choose his sex he would scream aloud, "Make me an American woman!" Before this poor, misguided Frenchman advances more opinions of this sort he should con sult Belva Lockwood, Dr. Mary Walker and an army of followers who are con tinually bewailing the fact that they are not American men. WHEN Denver completes its great audito rium our city will at once become the only summer convention city in the United States. We shall get them all without ask ing for them.-Denver Republican. Oh, no, you will do nothing of the sort. Helena will have three big conventions this summer, and, as matters look now, she will not have an auditorium before Sept. 1. But with an auditorium Den ver will not "be in it." ENOUGH bills for public buildings have been introduced to taper the senate chamber. Among those already passed in the senate are bills calling for an ap propriation of $250,000 for a building at Norfolk, Neb., and one for $100,000 for a building at The Dalles, in Ordgon. If these bills go through and those of Hel ena and Butte fail, the value of Mon. tana's representatives ifi congress will be materially lessened. THE New York World prints a sug gestive cartoon. Miss Chicago is walk ing down the boulevard accompanied by two smartly dresed gentlemen with trvealleg bage, ee labeled "d*ti ýiia';and the atbiir "DeiMnoqratiO OnE vetýtil," Uncole aam, taebdhi nee a, remarkis, "If you don't ,.ee what yos want, iinadan, justak tfor it," The` ci gehtleiman's advioe· ltnneoesary. .~1r Breesa ti Qthe point, whert she i0i 0 1 OuR esteemed contemporary, the Butte Miner, is informed that the author of a dispatch predicting the abutting down of the Anaconda mines, and published in the San Francisco Ceroniole, is not known among the newspaper men of this city. But the M~iner is wrqng in saying "if this tele gram was really sent from Helena Ait shows an intensity of malice on the part of that community little dreamed of." The people of lelena should not be held responsible for a "uike" dispatch sent out from this city by an ignorant and irresponsible person. NOT WITHOUT BENEFIT& Late news from Washington indioates that the Chilian trouble will soon be settled. It is certain that that govern ment has squarely backed down. The details of arbitration and an agreement on the amount of damages will be settled between the two governments so that there will be nothing more in the nature of war excitement. The controversy with Chili will not be without good results. It has aroused the patriotic blood of the American people, it has assured them that this government will protect the American citizen in any clime, it has brought to light the existence of a genuine navy that can fight, it has caused a general sentiment of satisfaction that the pat riotism, which made the blood tingle. in the days of '76, is still alive. The United States government has shown its backbone, and has made the South American republic apologize for its assault on our flag. It has demonstrated another thing; that party lines come together on an issue of so grave importance. When the flag is at tacked democrats and republicans are no longer partisans, but Americans in all the meaning of that term. It is bet ter that the trouble should have taken its present course and that Chili should atone for her insults in a way that sat isfies the honor of this-government with out the necessity of bloodshed. The howlers who favored the declaration of war before negotiations were completed may be disappointed, but the people who wanted peace, consistent with our national honor, are none the less patri otic,. And the tender-hearted ones who opposed the war because a great nation of sixty-three millions were on one side and four millions on the other are satisfied. It is the best ending to the trouble , and all true Americans should be satisfied with the course that has been pursued. MISTAKEN CIARITY. In nine instances out of twelve your amateur administrator of charity fails to achieve the ends to which the kind ness of his heart is continually prompt ing him. Especially is this the case in a large city. In smaller communities, where every one's business and conduct are known to his neighbors better than to himself, it is fairly possible for a large-hearted individual to derive from his charitable investments a reasonable percentage of the profit they ought to reap. But in the teeming masses of great cities it is simply impossible for the non-professional to distinguish with any certainty between the criminal and idle classes and those who are worthy recipients of charity. Money or assist ance given to the former is only a gi gantic mistake. It encourages the very evils which it hopes to remove. In his charitable crusade Gen. Booth, of the Salvation army, has proved him self the very prince of charitable ama teurs. Our readers will remember the publication of "Darkest England," and the exoitement which its revelations caused in the country whose impeach ment it was. The English people were actually shamed into reform and, when the general put himseif forward as the regenerator of the mass of fallen Eng lish humanity, his fellow countrymen figuratively fell upon his neck and be sought him to go ahead. lie needed a large suml of money. All right, it would be forthcoming. Not less than half a million dollars would be required. Shame or remorse brought him every cent of it. A few cautious men there were who asked for details, who did not quite care to give the general a free hand, doubting his discretion and not his zeal. But public feeling swept their feeble opposition away in, a flood, and the general entered upon his enormous undertaking, practically unfettered. The few, however, were in the right. Casting his eyes around, the general discovered, as it seemed to him, a pos sible means of occupation for some of his stray lambs in the firewood indus try. To bundling firewood the lambs accordingly went, and, as it was a par ticularly easy occupation, there were no complaints. But when the firewood was put on the market, there was the old gentleman to pay. England seemed to be already well supplied with fire wood and, as the salvation brand was no better than the unregenerato kind, it looked at first as if the general would have a firewood white elephant on his hands. Prices all over were already down to the lowest margin consistent with a bare living for those employed. In such a dilemma, what was to be done? Hal a bright thought. No sooner conceived than put in force. The general cut his prices below cost, and the .alvation firewood went like hot cakes. The deliciency? Well, of course, that came out of the funds sup plied for the regeneration of the masses, and in the meantime a body of industri ous men and women have to look on, while their business is openly taken from them by the general's fanatic and ridiculous rescirt. When charity creates a crowd of needy, hungry victims out of a body of industrious, honest people, and sends the money that should have been theirs into the pockets of many who have been thriftless anid undeserv ing most of their days, it is high time for radical interference. -ov. Badielgi, of Mi ha h h to wii t a boot )id k Mr, Swinburne has written .t4il ig the past year, the deth of his b r er and the daugeroti:us illest sb r relative having greatly moved e Joshua B.

Adams, in 17,7. Paul Dana, son of Charles A. DIttnu, vha recently made this statement, aitiucordig o the New York Auvertiser; '"I, atu, nextto Mr, Bonner, the best amatear expert on the care of horses, especially in diseaset oa tie feet, that I know of." There is talk adhong Tesais 'about having a statue of old "Sam" Houston plAoed in the capital at Washington. A preqident of our republic of Texas before her admission to the union, later a senator, and then' her governor, he is deemed peculialy a repfb-` sentative man. Judge Abraham Jgerson Seay, the new governor of Oklahoma, was not a precoaeips youth, it is interesting to learn. In facit, when he was 21 he could' barely read sald write. But at 32, he was a lawyer of some standing, next a county attorney, and for twelve years thereafter he sat on the bench as a oircuit fudge. S enator Morrill's orirtory is of the severe ly classical kind, but he knows the benefit of using metaphors occasionally, as he showed in his recent speech on silver, when he said: "Dynamite may not bring rain from the cloude, but the showers of finan cial balloonists will not fail to bring 0or tentious monetary storms upon our peo ple." Sir Ernest Lyons, the young English diplomat who died in Belgrade a few days ago, lost his life as the result of a wager. Being an excellent rider the young man made a bet with several friends that he could reach the station Ripani, about twelve miles from Belgrade, sooner on horseback than a train leaving the city at the same time. Sir Ernest lost the bet and his life, having been thrown from his horse. CROSS-CUTS. The female spiritualistic medium never exposes herself.

And as Mildendo is twenty miles from the station he was in extremie before they could get a doctor, who had to come all the way from Lynch burg. The river had risen and they could get no clergyman, the nearest being eight een miles off, so the servants buried him. Uncle Lot and Uncle Abram and Uncle Nim and Uncle Paul and three of their sons took the coffin on their should ers and carried it to the grave yard hill, singing, all the nouroes joining il, and the wife leaning on the arm of Uncle Jacob, the oldest colored man, for none of her children could get to her, they were so far away. 'there were the gentle men of the neighborhood present, of course, but none were of his time or gener ation, being overseers or northern settlers. When they got to the grave Uncle Jacob re peated the service, for he could not read, and made the most beautiful prayer. He was the only clergyman, and Mrs. Csrring ton preferred him, although, of course, he was not in orders, to a white person who was not a minister. She was com forted beyond words by their quiet devotion and by Uncle Jacob's prayer, which was full of thankfulness that through the fact that he had been a slave he had learned to know Christ and to bear the trials of life. Mrs. Carrington said that all the trappings of woe and all the ponmps and insignia of grief could never have had the solemnity or the peace of that funeral-the perfect blue of the sky, the river at their feet, the btild sing lug in the trees, and the open grave where her husband lay in the pine cuollu that Uncle Nim had made, who was the com panion of his boyhood and all these years his faithful fliend.
