RHEEC1EOTIHE FIRST ONE.
Helena Silter Club Adopts an Amended Form of the Colorado Resolutions. Original Platform Pronounoed Un- a satisfactory at the Meeting Last Night. Judge Howdy Says This Action Releases a the Two Hundred 'Who Have a Already Signed. The Silver club had a stirring meeting last night at Calimet hall. The stirring a part oame at the close of the meeting and y resulted in the rejection of the resolutions n first adopted and the substitution of the a* Colorado resolutions in an amended form. At the second meeting held the club adopted tl the following resolutions: The name of this organization shall be e the Helena Silver club. Our motto: "Equal rights for gold and silver, and free coinage L for both." Our object, to use every legiti. tc mate means to secure the free coinage of Is silver. Whereas, We recognize the free coinage ol of silver as being one of the most impor taut questions now before the country; an M issue fraught with vast good to millions of lii people, and a question of direct and vital fc Interest to the great majority of the citi zens of the United States; and N Whereas, We believe that the two great gi political parties with which most of us are se affiliated, have not given due attention to re the vital importance of this question, the time has come when every voter should rise H to the dignity of an American citizen and ti assert his independence of any political s party, unless that party shall at once take G measures and seek by proper laws the free cc coinage of silver; and Whereas, We recognize the fact that is every wealth-producer in the union, be he F employer or wage-earner, has a direct and ae deep interest in the question of the free D coinage of silver; and a' "Whereas, We are convinced that the d' Si free coinage of silver would be legislation T assuring the greatest good to the greatest number of our people, and calculated to restore to us a constitutional currency which was wrongfully wrested from us by L: the money power in control of legislation in the United States; therefore be it G. "Resolved, That in our opinion the pub- Li lie welfare is of vastly greater importance C. than party success. Believing thus, be it ir "Resolved, That as individual republi cans or democrats, we will use all honora- It. his means to secure delegations to the Min neapolis 'and Chicago national conventions D f,.vorable to the free coinage of silver, and A' who will endeavor by all fair means to A. cause the adoption by such conventionsaf C. a plank in their respective platforms, pledging the party and its candidates to W lend their power to enact a law for the free coinage of silver. N "Resolved, That each individual member Ir of this club unequivocally pledges himself that until this question is settled he will favor no candidate for any legislative or political office who does not heartily favor the free coinage of silver. "Resolved, That we respectfully, but B earnestly ask the enactment by the na tional congress at its present session of some measure for the free coinage of silver. y "Resolved, That we thoroughly appre- J, ciate and cordially endorse the splendid J, work that has been and is still being done l in this behalf at the national capital by F those members of congress who favor the J and unlimited coinage of silver. "Resolved. That we cordially and earn- g estly invite the active co-operation of the friends of silver in every voting precinct in J the union; organization means success. , "Resolved, That these preambles and ] resolutions shall be the constitution of this T club. The Colorado resolutions were then adopted, as follows: "Resolved, That is individuals, repub tissue or democrats, we will use our best endeavors to secure on behalf of the friends p of silver the control of both the Minneap- p olis and Chicago conventions; that our ef forts in that direction shall begin at the E primaries, always giving due notice that we G will not be bound by the action of either y of those conventions unless they shall nominate undoubted free silver candidates S on unequivocal free coinage platforms. "Resolved, That each individual member P of this club unequivocally pledges himself U that, until this question is settled, he will vote for no candidate for any office who does not heartily favor the free and un limited coinage of silver." D. P. Caldwell moved an amendment, which or ied, eliminating the words "re publicans or democrats" and "Minneapolie I and Chicago" and substituting "the several national political conventions," so as to cover all such organizations as may be called. After this had been done R. H. Howey called the attention of those present to the I fact that this action liad released the 200 t who signed the first resolutions. The Col orado men, who were in the majority, an- 1 awered that those who did not desire to 0 stbecribe to tire resolutions as amended £ could stay sway from the meetings. L. C. Harris, John r-hober and (Geo. B. Faote supported the Colo ado sersolutiona. E. D. Weed counseled reason and said the club should not be deceivad by anthusinesm. 'lbs club then adjourned without further action. There were about 100 in the ball when the1 meeting was called to order by Guy. Haneer. A set of by-laws were adopted providing for a president, two vice presidents, aecre tary, treasurer, sergeant-at-arms and en executive committrs of five. This rum muittee wee appointed by the president and consists of Glen. J. S. Harris, A. B. Hower, B. H. Howey. J. S. Tooker and B. to. Par chan. The officers are to hold offies for six months. 'The appoiuitment of the seraeernt at-arms is with the spesidernt. Fifteen meontee may call a apacial meeting by uniting insa request to tire president. Meet tugs ase to be held on the first and third IMondays in each month at 8 p. m. Rt. I. Hlowey then rend a specially pre pared paper on the silver question from early timoes down to the present, ahowmur the fluctuations in ratio between grild and silver, L. C. Harris also made a short ad dress. Secretary Miieknight said that the Helena Journal had charged him with not know ing anything about the silver question, so he would read anr artirle frome the bias friend silver bed, the Sew York Financial and Mining Rlaview. 'Tie article is one of a series by a French writer on political economy, and deals with the subject in an exhaustive manner. 'the extracts read were lourliy applauded. The club adjourned amid couslder able enthusiasm 'iron the ;rart of the Colorado men who hsd cur led their point. Probably owine to this circouretanca the matter of signing the new resolutione wee overlooked, Under the by-laws ailopted the next renalee meeting will fall no May 16. Alter the adjoournment it. HI.

The Sohool Board Takes Formal Pos session of the High Sohool Building. And There Are Two Little Signe Which Are Now up Over the Doors. It Was All Aeoomplished Without the Aid of Shotguns or Howitzers J nut at Twilight. The trustees of the Helena Sohool district are now in peoseselon of the uncompleted high school building, and may be looked to to finish it in time for the next terns, which begins in the fall. It was done without any violence or any resistance. No guns were visible during the ceremony of captur ing the building, and had there been any, there was no occasion to use them. There was nobody to dispute the capture. Shortly before eight o'clock last night, when day light and darkness were about evenly di vided, a small detachment of men might be seen approaching the handsome pile of stone and mortar which stands on a com manding eminence on Warren street. The party consisted of Chairman Langhorne and Trustees Kleinschmidt, Walker and Guthrie, and Secretary Ellis, of the school board, together with the war cor reepondent of the only seven-day Helena paper. The narrowness of the board walk compelled them to walk two abreast, Reaching the new high school building, the forces were augmented by the addition of Trustees Miller and Gans, and Superintendent Williams, who had acted as a reconnoitering party. The basement door in front and the main door above it were quiekly stormed and there being no defenders they were taken without firing a shot. After both had been securely locked the following notice was nailed to the base mont door: '"The board of trustees of school district No. 1 have this day taken actual possession of this building and all persons are warned not to trespass or in any manner interfere with workmen or those having the same in charge. This is done in pursuance of a resolution adopted by the board." On the main door of the front of the building this was tacked: "All persons are hereby notified that the school board will prosecute as trespassers anyone entering without permission." Then the party marched back to the school board rooms, where the proceedings were regularly placed on the minutes by the adoption of the following report: To the Board: Your building committee and committee on grounds, repairs and janitors, respectfully report that they have taken possession of the High School build ing, and put up notices warning all persons that anyone entering on the premises will be prosecnted, as tse board had formally taken possession of the building in accord ance with the resolution of the board. C. B. MLrnrza, W. H. GOraRIrE, JAcQo WALKER, FRED GAMER. About this time Judge Adkisson, attor ney for the contractors, came in. He said he had understood the board was going to talk over the high school matter with a view of taking final aetion. He was told the board had finished talking over the situation and had already taken the sters they intended. Then Judge Adkinson wens out again. The high school building was started in August, 1890, and was to have been com pleted by April, 1891. Many changes in the original plans caused some of the delay and the contraetors got very much behind for other esuses as well. The board has been talking of finishing the bailding for about two months. and last night's notion settles it very likely. Contractor J. S. Grant has been tendered the position of superintendent to complete the building and will probably accept. Crockery and glassware very cheap at The Bee Hive.
