BLAINE GETS MAD. it When the political history of the pres- to! ent time is written the health of Mr. all Blaine will form a chapter as important PO as'that of the Bering sea troubles or the Chilian imbroglio. The people will read tb how a great nation was trembling in th the balance from day to day as the pains TI in Blaine's stomach were flashed over fig the wire; they will wonder how great th the man could be when they search th through old Associated Press dispatohes us and find that "Mr. Blaine forgot himself last evening and swallowed a piece of th Washington cream pie. This morning he had a slight attack of indigestion. A o hasty cabinet meeting was called and fo the seriousness of the case thoroughly es discussed. The hotel corridors are filled ar this evening with prominent republican leaders who were summoned from New se York and Chicago." The condition of his health is no joke t to Mr. Blame and he has our sympathy H it he is really ill. We submit, however, ti that as an American patriot it is time g he relieved his subjects of this fearful n suspense. They are not willing to take the words of gossiping politicians; they a want something official and they want n it from Blaine himself. The nearest ap proach to announcement of this charac c-d ter is found in the Washington corres pondence of the New York World. We it reprint it, first, because it appears in a reliable newspaper and is probably 1 authentic, and secondly, because we know it will cause high glee in the sanctum of our esteemed evening con temporary. The dispatch reads: SIt is known here that Mr. Blaine is greatly incensed at the president for what he believes to be a systematic and persist ent attempt to misrepresent his condition to the people. Some of these reports have even gone so far as to make Mr. Blaine out mentally unsound and a victim of t general paresis. His memory is represented I to be failing to the extent that he cannot I recall from day to day the routine business i of the cabinet, and other trivial things. It has also been alleged that Blaine has passed his oldest and dearest friends on the street without recognizing them. In other words Blaine has been made an old, broken down, decrepit man, utterly incapable of perform ing the duties of president. "Mr. Blainb's friends have no doubt of the source of these stories. Most of them, they may, can be traced directly to the White house. Mr. Harrison, they declare, is re sponsible for the starting and circulation of these cruel and false reports. But Mr. Blaine, himself, is not satisfied that the president is the author of, or is directly re sponsible for their publication. To a friend who mentioned the subject to the secretary of state in Washington, recently Mr. Blaine expressed the greatest indignation, and gave signs of laboring under tremendous excitement. "'Bring we the proof,' exclaimed Mr. Blaine, springing to his feet and gesticu lating dramatically, 'that the president is either directly or indirectly responsible for the publication of these damnable reports regarding myself, and I will go to the pres ident, shake it under his nose and demand an explanation. Damn him, I will run anyway if what you tell me is true.' "This friend vowed that he could and would supply the proof. If it should be forthcoming, a political dynamite explo sion may be looked for in Washington. The World's informant said he had never seen Mr. Blaine more thoroughly aroused or excited. He was mad clean through." This news is indeed gratifying. We again submit that a man who can say d- and be mad clean through when he says it is healthy enough to run for any office. A TARIFF REFORM EIIPEROR. The protectionists in looking about the world for fields where the exercise of their theory has produced beneficial results, usually point to Germany, a country in which the manufacturing industry is small compared to Eng land. But as Germany is about the only foreign country working under a protective tariff the advocates of that theory must use her as an examole or worry along ex plaining the defects in the high wall tariff of the United States. It appears, however, that the young emperor is working about a change. In a recent I magazmie article Poultney Bigelow tells how it has started. He says: "The emperor has brought into one friendly federation more than half a million square miles of country, and over one hundred millions of people. He has encouraged commercial intercourse be tween the semi-tropical groves of Sicily and the amber coasts of the Baltic; from the iron mines of Westphalia to the cat tle ranges of the Magyar kingdom. The friendship which he feels for America is well known and springs from intimate acquaintance with our best workers. We have to thank this feeling and not the spirit of protectionism for the fact that to-day Germany admits Americar cork into the country-a food product wlhch Blam4rok was the means of ei eluding. The emperor has reached out the hand of friendship and commerce to his pouintry's traditiofal enemy, Austria; m he has broken down the barriers of pre judice which have separitted these counft= tries for centuries, and has, contrary to u the teachings of his late chanoellor, *t madet~f theas two empires a friendly il federation of sovereign sat~e.'t 44 The young than' may be as errhtle as his enemies claim, but it is evident that he is all right in his theory of extending ft trade relations by breaking dowp useless restrictions. ELECTRIC MOTIVE POWER. ii The most gigantic engineering enter prises of the age are being directed to ti the development of water power for the generation of electricity. It is only t through scientific journals that an ade- ii quate idea may be obtained of the pro ject to bring the power of Niagara Falls c into Buffalo. When the scheme was first discussed a few years ago it was ridiculed. Now the work has progressed *ti to the degree where success is assured, 0 and when completed it is expected that i not only all machinery in Buffalo will v be driven,.but that the "system will be a extended to include other cities ini New C York state. With a fall, the strength I of which is almost beyond estimate, it is not too much to expect that Niagara will work almost a revolution in the a motive power of Western New Yqrk. The advancement in electrical science is constantly increasing the distance over which electricity may be conveyed, and a it seems certain that within the next t ten years it takes the place of steam in all sections of the country where water power may be had. The latest move in this direction is t that of Montreal capitalists to utilize the Chamblay rapids near that city. The power will be used for electric lights and cars and manufacturing. If the project is successful it is probable that the Lachine rapids can also be used. Helena is interested in the progress of these various enterprises. The Missouri River Power company propose to work on the same lines and have all reasons for believing that the results will be the same as elsewhere. The power is there and it is less than twenty miles from this 'city. One 'of these days we will see all the machinery in the city driven by currents of electricity generated on the Missouri. When this time comes Helena,' with 'cheap Power, central loca tion and railway facilities, will be the greatest manufacturing city in the 7 northwest. Tna demon of Russian nihilism is t awakening from his slumbers as the march of the famine specter continues. t Starving multitudes are ready in their t desperation to listen to the nihilist orators, and as a result the cause is gain ing recruits by the thousands. While the Russian government is not responsi ble for visitations of Providence, it is nevertheless true that the condition of the peasantry would be far better under the enforcement of more liberal laws. Starvation knows no laws, and if the nihilist's bomb will bring bread it will undoubtedly be freely used before the crisis is over, A sPaRIN, the waters of which send the most vigorous hair rejuvenators into the shade, has lately been discovered in that prolific state, California. The effect is so marked that real estate men are buying up the surrounding country with a view of establishing a great sanitarium for bald headed men. The lusty young city of Great Falls will have to produce something besides a bi-chloride of gold spring if it hopes to keep pace in the discoveries of mineral waters. Oua news columns tell an interesting story this morning of the gathering of republican clans at Missoula for the purpose of selecting delegates to the Minneapolis convention. In many re spects the convention was like those held in most of the other states-Blaine get the cheers and the votes will be given to Harrison in all probability. i Take it all in all it was a great day for the g. o. p. of Montana. THE Briggs faction defeated the pro a fessor's enemies in the New York presby r tery with ammunition to spare. The contest will be renewed at Portland when the general assembly meets. It a is hoped that a definite settlement will then be reached to the end that all d participants may pay more attention to 4 the great mass of sinners. HENRY WATTERSON in discussing the negro problem in the south, takes a very pesaimistic view of the situation. He finds that the problem exists, but proposes no remedies. Perhaps the best remedy is suggested by a deduction of Mr. Watterson's views, that of leaving the southern negro alone to work out the solution for himself. BY HIS OWN HANDS. A Verdict That Johann Augustus Swend sen Committed Suicide. - At the coroner's inquest hsld Sunday on the body of the Swedo found hanging to a strap in a cabin in Independence gulch on Saturday, the verdiot was that Johann Gus tav Swendsen came to his death at his own hands. From a diary and lette:s found on his person it was learned that the deceased was born at Skutatort, Sweden, March 30, 1860, and left there June 9, 1890, and went to Denver. He was married, but left his wife in Sweden. Letters were found from John and Gus Reot, of Denver, and a post office order for $7 from P. Anderson. of Sil ver City, Idaho, in favor of Pete Johnson. There were also letters from P. Holmes, 439 Main street, Helena. From the testi mony it apueared that the deceased was looking for the Umatilla mine where he had a. brother living. Carrow offered to show him the way. Swendsen went along for about two miles and then turned back and said he would go to the Broadwater. Carrow then went on his way prospecting. Swendsen laid down on the mountain aide. where Carrow again saw him as he passed around a meuntain. It is thought that Swendsen's mind was disarranged at the time he committed suicide, as he had been sick in Denver and in Helena. Cabinets, $1.50 Per Dozen.
