The Anniversary of the Martyr's
Birth is Fittingly Celebrated
A Pleasant Entertainmient by the
Bona of Veterans Last
lastle, Iteltatlons, speech Makingl, Quilt
Voting Contest, a Fine Supper
and a Good Dance,
The anniversary of the birthday of
Abraham Lincoln, the martyred president,
is essentially a Sons of Veterans day. It
was observed by the U. S. Grant camp, of
that order, in Helena, by a celebration that
reflected great credit upon the organization
and afforded enjoyment for the largest
crowd that has ever been gotten together
in Grand Army hall. The Sons of Veterans
and the members of the Wadsworth post
of the Grand Army of the le ublio were
all "present or accounted for." The ladies
were also there in great numbers. The
entertainment opened by First Sergeant
Worden, of the camp, reading the order on
the observance of the day. This was fol
lowed by some fine selections by the West
Side Quartette club, and a recitation by
Miss Clara O'Connor. Prof. H. C. Yaeger
and C, H. Clark gave a piano duet, and
Rev. J. H. Crooker, of the Unitarian
church, was introduced as the speaker
of the evening. He began by referring
to the great men of the country-Lincoln,
Grant, Alex. Hamilton, etc., and said Lin
coln was the greatest of them all. He was
greater morally than Grant. Born and
raised in an humble cabin, he rose to the
highest honer in.the gift of the American
people. And at that high station he re
tained all his simplicity born of his early
training and associations. He was patient
and bore the troubles which beset him with
patience; never complaniing, he shouldered
the burden put upon him and bravely ear
ried it until be laid him down in a martyr's
grave. His origin and his rise to the head
of the nation was the most striking illus
tration that could be produced of the illim
itable possibilities of America, and the
widly open gates to honors that lay before
all Americans. The speech was intently
listened to and roundly applauded.
A violin duet by Al Oldham and Miss
Deegan, with piano accompaniment, fol
lowed, after which came a song by the
quartette, who were encored. Their sele.
tions pave great satisfaction, embracing
both patriotic and comic airs. Comrade
G. W. Shaw. of Wadsworth post, Grand
Army of the Republio, presented to U. S.
Grant camp a well executed crayor portrait
of Lincoln, handsomely framed. It was
accepted on behalf of the camp by Capt.
W. S. Votaw.
The event of the evening was the voting
for the crazy quilt, a beautiful piece of
work, made by the ladies of the Woman's
Relief corps. Each member of the corps
contributed a square. The subscribers to
the quilt had the privilege of writing their
names on the back. Those in the hall had
the privilege of voting for their choice as
to who was the most popular member of
the camp or of Wadsworth post to receive
it. 'There were numerous contestants, but
Capt. W. S. Votaw won with 333 votes. H.
Sloggy, of Wadsworth post, was only a few
votes behind. Capt. Votaw received many
congratulations on his enecesi. The quilt
contest realized the camp $220.
A fine supper was served by the members
of the Woman's Relief corps, and dancing
was kept up until a late hour.

The Devil's Auction.
Of this grand spectacular • production
the Philadelphia Item has the following:
If the enthusiasm of the audience last night
is any criterion of success, Manager Gil
more's new "Devil's Auction" will enter
into a career as financially and artis
tically successful as the graft from which
the present play grew. Since its last ap
senrance here the "Devil's Auction" has
undergone a metamorphosis in many re
spects. It is now much brighter, funnier
and altogether more entertaining. The
scenery of the rovised spectacular-it is
oractically that-is the best ever shown in
U similar production. It with the mechan
ical effects--ll of which worked as
smoothly as one would wish last night,
make up the most acceptable display.
The costumes of the play are the richest
ever provided by Manager Gilmore. They
comprise uniqueness, costliness and orig
inality, and well belit the score or more
young, pretty and shapely ladies who in
duale in varions marches and dances down
on the programme divertisements. In the
scenes where the dances hold sway Camis,
a new premiere assoluta, makes her appear
ance. Canmis is one of the dnintiest of
dancers, and combines such an easy grace
fulness with Iher ditflcult sto.ps as to make
them appear more easy than they really
were. Other aersons giving sleooialties are
the Lorells, an acrobatie trio who do a
clever act; the Boshbobies, in a high and
lofty tumbling performance, the Tiepatie
family, eight in number, who give one of
the most conmical of dances. There are nu
morous others, besides these, who help to
mnrke the "DIevil's Auotiou" eomplete.

In December last all the first-class cloth

ment to olose their respective stores at eight
p. m. sharp on and after the first day of
January, 1892, Saturdays excepted. Every
firm that rignedl the ggreement, with the
exception of : heyer Bros,, proprietors of
the New York Clothing store, have lived upr
to it. lBut that firm after hlaving signed
the agreement have, with one or two excep

upon. Ilealizing the unfairness of their

we e honrorably livinsgup to their agreement,
a committee of salesmen waited upon
Bhheyer Bros.. and they again gave their

TISIB 8'A'TE LANDS,

the UDIaltssies He Enaeouutered.
state Land Commnssioner Granville Stu
art has gone to the Belt Mountain country
to look after forty aores of ieh6ol land,
which has been located as coal land,
Speaking of the difoultlee he enpountered
in performing his duates, Mr. Stuart says in
the Great FallisTribune: "I have made a
great many seleotions of land, but the
present prospects are that many, very
many, of them will not hold. The trouble
ia that the Great Northern extension has
flooded the Flathead country with an army
of timber land locators, who have squatted
upon my seleotlous about as fast as I have
made them. We asked Secretary Noble to
withdraw from settlement such townships
as I selected in the Flathead country, but
he refused, being inclined to give settlers
the preference in the choice of lands
"During Governor Toole's recent visit to
Washington he succeeded, hbwever, in per
suading the secretary to withdraw six town
chips from the northern portion of the
Flathead valley, subject to the claims of I
those already upon the lauds. There are
but few, however, upon them, and we are
sure of that much anyway. But I do not
think we will get one-tenth of the other se
leotions made. I have been in the country
about forty years, but have never seen dur
ing that time such a scramble for lands as
ianlow being made on the line of the Great
N1rthern west of the range. It is astonish
Sing how they are squatted upon. They are
I wanted for the timber upon them, for it
I would take an ordinary lifetime to make
the lands fit for farming, they are covered
with such a dense growth of timber.
"The fact is Montana was about a year
too late in being admitted as a state. If
we had been admitted before, our selections
could have been made and withdrawn for
surveys in advance of the present rash of
timber land seekers. There is, however,
nothing to do now but to make the best of
l the situation and select the 500,000 acres
due as best we may. Next season I shall
look over the northern and eastern portions
of the state. There arp some fine agrleul
I tural lands in those sections which may be
obtained for the state."

THE M'NALLY SUIT.
I As Appeal Will Be Takes to the Suapreme
The suit against D. J. McNally as build
ing inspector, brought by David Merritt on
1 account of the death of his little boy by the
falling of a defective wall, will go to the
supreme court. The judgment in favor of
the building inspector for $7.50 costs was
entered in the district court only a few
days ago, and the ease was dismissed with
I out prejudice. Under the law the attorney
for Merritt will have a year in which to ap
t peal to the supreme court. The appeal, it
is stated, will be filed very shortly. The
questions in the Merritt-McNally case have
never been depided by the Montana supreme
court. Should that body decide against
Merritt, he will bring suit against the city
for damages. Thelawyers of Helena are in
a terested in the question as to whether the
city will pay Mr. McNallv's counsel fees
and court expenses when the oase is heard
in the supreme court.

Arrasging for a Series of Coneetst Dar
ing the Convention Period Next
There will be a meeting of the Helena
auditorium committee at 11 a. in. to-day,
at the Board of Trade rooms. President
Muth, of the board, urges every member
to be present. The erection of a suitable
hall or assembly building for the accommo
dation of the conventions which are to
meet here this coming summer will be
brought up for notion. This committee is
composed of members of the city council
and members of the Board of Trade, as
follows: Mayor Kleinschmidt, Aldermen
Lissner, Steele, Fuller, Morris, Witmner,
Harrity, Thompson, H. M. Parchen, R. H.
Howey, J. H. Lawrence, George S. Apple
ton, H. M. Brandegee. There, are several
propositions to be considered, and the
time has come for some definite action in
determining upon one of these. The Imem
bers of the joint committee from the
Board of Trade were appointed last night
by President Muth, at a regular meeting of
the board. The committee will be glad to
hear from anyone who has any suggestions
or plans to offer in the auditorium matter.
A. M. E.Hler secured the appointment of
a committee to procure better mail facilities
between Montana points and the Coeur
d'Alenes. He stated that the mails are now
being carried by way of Spokane. It takes
three days for a letter to go from
Helena to the Coeur d'Alenes and
the same amount of time for
a letter to reach here. This causes con
siderable delay which can be avoided if the
route is changed so that mail can be car
ried by way of the Missoula cut-off. The
committee will call upon the railway mail
superintendent to-day and urge the neces
sity for the change.
A resolution was read recommending
the appointmen of acommittee to
arrange for a series of concerts next
summer during the convention period
by a brass band of twenty or more pieces.
Prof. Zimmerman, of the Elite orchestra,
favored the proposition and said a band of
twenty pieces could be engaged for about
$250 per week. A committeewas apoointed
to consider the matter. Permission was
given to use a portion of the board rooms
for practice by the Encore orchestra, which
is about to be reorganized.
A communication from the river conven
tion which met at Kansas City, regarding
appropriations for the improvement of the

appropriations are made for this purpose
amounting to $12,000,000. It is desired to
have the appropriations continued and be
set apart from the river and harbor bill.
The board adopted a report recommending'
the establishment of a vinegar factory.
About $8,000 is required for the plant. The
