Thepres reports from various parts of the country show that ae labor organizations have beenrights of prop- n foundly moved by the troubles in Penn- gI sylvani and it is alt obedther probable law. t thatthe striking miners of the Clesituationur when d'Alenes made their misguided attack h oneace and order and the a result of encour-f c agem law must the successes of the workill be ingmned even at Homestead. Doubtless the unanimous condemnation appeaof to the e plomentoderal Piokerton hs leBut som of hbe the more excitabthe Idform olaw and iners to sub ordinve that public sentiment would be with them to any extent they might go. If so, the strikers have exisunderstood therictly situation. The great body of American people do not believe in violence. They i believe in respecting the rights of prop-it orty and in strict obedience to the law.een Gov. Pattison, who has conducted him sel with admirable temper doctrin iscre tion in the Pennsylvania attacks, struck gi the key note of the whole situation when th he said: HomesteadIt must be understood that h peace and order and the observance of c the law must be adherenarie to and will be L maintained even if it rovokequires all toodshe force of the state or an appeal to the federal government. conut it waust be done under the or of law and in swhob ordination to civil authority. Property !' will be protected mselvesin the rights of all f parties of the terrxistinble struggle strictly at maintained without regard to the merit It orde. Therit erits oof the differconctroversy wee them." This is sound American dIoctrine. There great difference betweeri the situathio aton e harged d ;i is th at the excutin ofJ order and the presirvate corortion of property; the other men who rc ar resisting withe enforcemerant of law and provokeace and order, n tweeand are destroy rking ie ander property.ec-t tails of teo suc a contest there can bire nobut tone haconclusion.

John manWiacturer , in bthl tolt the preenited oestion n (b, wages 1 S are oprely questions of business, and that "the iron trade doesn't warrant the pay nent of existing wages in spite of prote- tioea" Do you igree with the above ment atent? 8. If yo do, aur w to continue to put utlliited faith in the oft-Lpeated aner tion5 of high protectionistst that protctlona ratLes wages? 4. Will you, as an offset to the depresa ing news of reductions and strikes in the greatest of protected Industries, name in stances where wages have been raised as the result of your bill? L. Who have been the principal benefi claries of your bill? Now what we want to know is, is Gov. McKinley obliged to answer such questions as those? If so, congress should at once pass a law givlng him protection. I'r begins to look as though Senator Palmer, of Illinois, was half right when he predicted in his speech on the Homestead riots on Friday that we had only seen the beginning of great labor troubles. The labor unions were never so strong as they are to-day. They are in close sympathy and co-operation throughout the country, and, whenever the men in one industry are etTooted, all are more or less disturbed. Labor leaders in New York city freely declare that if the strikes in the iron trade in Pennsylvania continue the labor organi zations in New York will go out. Simi lar news comes from Indiana, Ohio, Illinois and other states where the various unions are strong. Like condi tions do not confront the men in the various trades and industries, but each union is disposed to stand by the others. It is a bad state of things indeed. The shots fired by Carnegie's mercenaries may be heard all over the country before the end is reached. Mu. D. O. MILs, the father-in-law of Vice-Presidential Candidate Whitelaw Reid, is opposed to the exclusion of the Chinese from this country. He believes Chinese labor is a benefit to the country and wants more of it on the Pacitic coast. The Helena Journal has ferociouly attacked William C. Whitney as a dem ocratic leader because his brother-in law holds stock in the Standard Oil com pany. By parity of reasoning the Journal should be against Whitelaw Reid. A son-in-law is just as responsi ble for his father-in law as Mr. Whitney is for a brother-in-law. We hope to be able to announce shortly that the es teemed Journal has demanded Mr. Reid's retirement from the ticket. TAF prize drills which will be such an interesting feature of the mining con gress will begin at the auditorium to night. These contests in other places have excited the greatest interest and the events here will attract more atten tion than those of any preceding year. Nothing like these exhibitions has been seen elsewhere in the United States, and our citizens who miss them will re gret it. They are tests of skill, muscle and endurance, and the men who engage in them are the best types of labor em ployed in our great mines. We hope every seat in the auditorium will be filled to-night. THE Homestoad strikers showed good sense and conservatism in ceasing from hostilities after their encounter with the Pinkertons. They held a mass meeting yesterday and decided to give a hearty welcome to the militia. Throughout the troubles they refrained from destroying property and left the company's watch men in charge of the mills. This is in marked contrast with the conduct of the Idaho miners. THE ladies of Helena and of $Montana generally will be interested in attending the mining congress. The mineral ex hibit is a fascinating one and the great contest of the drillers will interest all. Let the fair sex be out in force at the meetings. THir esteemed Herald is right. It was not Mr. Foster, of Evansville, but Mr. I'oster, of Fostoria, who removed Mr. Bllane's relative from a clerkship. Mr. Foster, of Fostoria, is even a smaller man than Mr. Foster, of rvansvillo.

He evidently desires to retn u to Chicago journalism, however, if a letter re :t oeived from him by the managing editor of Sone of the big Chicago morning dailies te ar good evidence. The letter says in sunbtance es that its author has been holding a most im portant editorial peltioa uipe one o: the greatet papers of the northwest, but could be induced to come to (leago. He saee that he eoelsders himself w A No. 1 new ppser man, eompetat to All an position, and adds: "Permit me to eagget thai I acould write much better p*ragaphs than your present paragrapher hi trnug out. If for any reason you se at to diseharge him I would be pleased to consider a proposition from You." ' he managing editor of that Chicago daily, however, contributes all the pars graphs upon his editorial page. Bo he die tated the following reply: Septimus Blank, St. Paul, Mlan.-Dear Sir: I thank you most heartily for your fa. vor of recent date regarding a positio' upon my editorial staff, I am also grateful for your suggestions concerning paragraph ing, No one knows better than I do that our papagrapha might be very materially improved, but the relations between our present paragrapher and myself are so in timate that I do not see how I could die charge him so long as I continue in my present position. Iq fact, we are practic ally inseparable. We were born about the same time and passed our boyhood days to gether.

How dreadfully I am tan ned! 1 look like a Malay. Mrs. Kajones-Well. whose fault it it?" You just would join that Browning club. "If I understood you," said the lawyer to the man who called to consult him, "your cow was thrown from the track at a street crossing by a locomotive on the X., Y. and Z. road, and you want to bring suit against the company for damages?" "Yes, that's right." The lawyer made a memorandum. "Valuable animal, I presume?" "Party good cow. Hadn't no bad tricks. Good milker?" "What breed?" "I don't know." "You don't know? Was she badly in jured?" "Badly injured? Why, she was killed deader'n a mackerel." "And buried?" "Course." "Why didn't you say so?" exclaimed the attorney, impatiently. "There's only one breed of cattle in oases of this kind." And he made another memorandum: "Breed, Jersey. Value, $150."-Chicago Tribune. A resident of Columbus, Ind., has a game cock which was "cock of the walk" and lord of the barnyard. He was recently at tacked by a bull, but in a very few seconds the bull was minus an eye. About a year ago he killed in one day, It is claimed, seven geese, eleven turkeys and three roost ers. For punishment he was thrown into a pen with an old sow, and inside of ten sec onds he had knocked both her eyes out and was on the pen crowing lustily. "I was present at the autopsy of a noted old 'rounder' of my town a few weeks ago," said John A. Holliday. of '1 roy, N. Y., tro : Globe Democrat repoverter, "and I was star tied and shocked at what I saw. The de.il man was about 60 years old and had been the town drunkard for forty years. The doctors had surmised thht when they cut his head open a pronounced smell of alco hol would issue from the skull. I thought it only one of those grim sort of jokes that the IEsculapians indulge in sometimes when they are carving a fellow-man to mince meat in the interest of their science. But I soon learned that it was no joke, for when the surgeon's saw had cut off the top of the man's skull the odor of alcohol thatg filled the room was strong enough to almost sicken one. Then one of the surgeons struck a match and held it close to the brain. Immediately a blue flameenveloped the entire portion of the cerebral organ ex posed, and the quivering flesh sizzled as if on a gridiron. That eiperiment and di. closure set me to very seriously thinking about the error of my way. I am not a teom erance lecturer nr a prohibition poli tician, but I must most respectfully and firmly decline your invitation to have some thing. I don't want my brain to float around in a sea of alcohol, rrs did that of the poor old town drunkard of Troy. There is no telling how many other men's brains will reveal the same conditionm if an autopsy is held upon them." Glods. to Helena, on ledges which mark ,wo former levels of the Missouri river, are he world famous sapphire and ruby beds, ,000 acres of which, with 2,000 other acres nder water, have recently been acquired )y an English company of noblemen, bank .'-, jewelers and others for $2,0,000000--the nere value of the gold which it is thought will be taken from the dirt. That sap phires and rubies were there has been nown for twenty years or more, miners raving kept the finer specimens, and others oaring thrown them out of their pans into he river by the hundredweight as pebbles f no value. The truth, as I get it from ex ports, is that these stones are true rubies and sapphires, and the only opportunity they offer for criticism lies in the fact that nearly all of them are much lighter in color than the Asiatic gems of the same sort. In ,ther words, pigeon's blood rubies and sap phire blue sapphires are found there, but not often. And yet these stones of the lighter shades are of far greater brilliancy thaen the Asiatr': gems that fashion has ap proved. They are often like diamonds, and their hardness is next to that of the dia mond; their luster must prove enduring. The gems are found on the bed rock under eight or ten feet of soil, along with crystanls, nuggets of gold, gold dust, garnets and peb bles. The land was bought by two Michi gan lumbermen, brothers, who now treas ure a million in cash and a million in shares of the new English ennpany--re wards for their foresight. One of the Eng lish experts who examined the gem fields announced it as his opinion that the dia mond must soonier or later be found in Montana. All the conditions warrant its existence there.

Itwland Hall aicheol. IRev. W. M. Lane, of Salt Lake City, is visiting Helena in the interest of Rowland Hall, a large seminary for girls. Rowland Hall is one of the finest schools in this country, its standard of scholarship being higher than any other school. Any mother thinking of sending her daughter away to school will do well to see Mr. Lane during his stay in our city. There are many conditions which make Rowland Hall the best school for Montana girls. The climate of Salt Lake; the nearness to our state; the splendid bulldinus; the hiuh standard of scholarship; the perfect disoi pline and home-like character, and the moderate cost of tuition all go to make the school a desirable one for our daughters.
