thatthe striking miners of the Clesituationur when

so, the strikers have exisunderstood therictly

people do not believe in violence. They i

orty and in strict obedience to the law.een
Gov. Pattison, who has conducted him

the key note of the whole situation when th

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.

it A young maini whio at olne tilne worked a
ie few weeks upon a local daily has been do
- ing editorial work recently for a St. Paul
is I paper. 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

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. Each shared the other's joys and
sorrows-both of us attended the same
school, both fell in love with the same girl
and both married her. And now both of
us are trying to hold down the same news

"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
"Badly injured? Why, she was killed

attorney, impatiently. "There's only one

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. What a ltate Montana isi

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.
