A LONG BICYCLE TOU,.
A New York Wheelman in Town on a Trip Around the World. Expects to Complete the Journey Some Time in the Fall of 1883. Lhe Tourists la the Yellowsteone Natioal Park Make a Pet Of "Oatlng'a" Represeaeatvle. All the bicyole riders in Helena tarned ouat last night to greet F. G. Lenz, a young man from New York city who is making a tour of the world on a bicycle. He started from New York on June 5, and so far has traveled 3,198 miles, whioh includes six days wheeling in the national park. Mr. Lens will rest in Helenm four or five days before starting west. On leaving New York he took the Hudson river road to Albany; then..e to Buffalo, Detroit, Jackson, Chicago. Milwaukee, LaCrosse and St. Paul. From St. Paul be came west to Aberdeen, S. D., up the Jim River valley to Jamestown, following the Northern Pacife railroad to Livingston. Six dave were spent in the park where Mr. Lenz was the pet of the sourists, and as muok of an attraction as "Old Faithful" geyser. He left Bozeman Wednesday morning and spent the night at Crow Creek and arrived in Helena at five p. m. yesterday. When I he leaves for the west he will fol low the old emigrant road to Port land and then go to fan Francisco r where he will take a steamer for 1 Japan. 1)aring the winter months he t will be in China, where Mr. Lenz expects a he will meet with some difficulty, owing to t the ignorance of the natives in the interior. By next spring he expects to be in Persia and Turkey, and will afterwards "do" Europe on his wheel, returning to New York in the fall of 1893. The wheel on which Mr. Lenz is traveling was an object of much interest last night to the local wheelmen and others. It is a pneumatic safety. Over the rear wheel is a steel framework on which is strapped a special -satchel containing clothing weigh ing twenty-fve pounds. When on the road Mr. Lenz carries on his back a camera weighing fifteen pounds, which was esupe ially made for the trip. It has an ingenious arrangement of clockwork designed by Mr. Leanz which makes the camera automatic and with which hi can take his own pie ture. The preofs of his snap shots are sent to "Outing," a magazine published in New York, with letters describing his trip. Over the front wheel he carries a canteen, and strapped to the handles is a case con taining a silver plated revolver. This Mr. Leaz calls his "dog pal verizer," to be used on canines who dispate his right to the road. He has no use for the ammonia guns which some wheelmen carry. These are a special fea ture of bicycle equipment. They carry a charge of ammonia which is squirted at the muzzle of a dog. Mr. Lenz prefers a revolver, as being moe effective and be lieves it is a better weapon for general ser vice than the ammonia squirt gn. Around his waist in a leather belt he carries his money and watch and a hunting knife, the latter being a present from a cowboy ad mirer whom he met while passing through the Dakota bad lands. The two little leather fobs on his belt where he carries his wateh and currency Mr. Lenz calls "Time and Money." He says that's what it takes to make a tour of the world. When he reached Helena last evening he was in good spirits sad excellent condition. He is well tanned and his muscles are hard. His weight is 140 pounds and he stands five feet seven inches in his shoes, and isa25 years old. Montana, so far as he has traveled through it, he says, has the worst roads he has met since leaving New York. Wisconsin and Michigan roads were bad, but not so much so as the highways of eastern Montana, particularly in the bad lands, where he found it very lonesome wheeling. At every place on his tour Mr. Lenz says he has been well treated, the wheelmen especially taking great interest in him and doing all in their power to make his stops agreeable and aiding him in every possible way. After he eompletee his tour of the world Mr. Lenz will write a book in which he will describe his trip around the world on a wheel.

On Monday and Tuesday evening next, Manager Remington offers a rare treat to his patrons, which will be Iteed and Collier and their great company of comedians in their latest farce comedy oraze, "Hoes and Hose," of which the stars themselves are the authors. The company numbers twenty people, every one of which is an artist. The play has been a howling, hilarious hit, and it is said to contain a laugh in every line. There are also many new features introduced, among which will be the latest New York sensation, the great "Kangaroo dance," which will be Introduced by Mist Louise Allen, who is the originator of it. Another prominent feature will be the "Bowery hall," which has been so much talked about by the eastern press of late. It receives half a dozen curtain calls at eaebh performance. Charlie Reed, who is the originator of the "Tamale ouRng," will sing it here during his stay, as waell as many other new ones of which he has no end. Charlie was for a long time a partner of Billy Emerson in 8an Francisao in the minstrel business, and took his departure from black face four years and then started as a comedian in force-comedy, and f om the start was an instantasneous success, and to-day stands without an equal in his own peculiar way. Of his partner, William Collier, who is a very young man, the samue can be said, as he is a directly olil)olte style of comedy, and is known as the quaint cttuiedian. They will also present the entertainment here in its entirety, as they bring all the seanery and costumes they used in .an Francisco at the California theater, whe: e they have just closed a two w.eik' engag.e meat. This is the first appearance of these clever comedians in three years (which was then with the City l)Irectory I company), and they then eastablihed them selves as favorites, and their reception will be an enthusiastic oiie.

I ra Mnaliopatl Oovern net Revs Child's Play ? the embters Ask. To Tan lruartnnla Several visitors at the eity councll last session and the pre sediang one could cot bat repeatedly ask themselver this question, when they saw with what little thought and dignity sub Jests of vital importance to the city's wsl far were handled. Particularly in settling the question brought forward by the W. C. T. U. it wa not necesary that the coanailmen, bseasss they differed in opinion from the petitioners. should discuss the subject with pointless witticism and obsene jest, and with many a nod and wik and knowing semile passed round. It was net neeessary to move that the prayer of the petitioners be granted, and carry that motion by a vote in the affirma tire, and then in a few moments move that the report of the judiciary committee on the petition be accepted, and carry that likewise by a vote of adffirmation, when ,it was almost antagonistic to that prayer to make the W. C. T. U. think they were doing something with the petition. Cer taknly the union was capable ef seeing the absurdity of snuch prooeedngs. Was it not pure childishness to move, in a pet, that the marshal he instructed to enforce ordinance nine, for the purpose of ending the dis onesion at that time, and then in the fol lowing session to have it boldly stated that the council all knew nothing was meant by that motion but to close the disoussion, and that the eoancilmen had the good interests of the city too much at heart, (pocket hemeart) to seriously countenance any such motion. This member then immediately called for a reseal of said action and a motion to adopt the report of the committee. The clerk immediately responded that said re port had been adopted at the previous meet ing, remaining discreetly silent about the other motion being carried, granting the prayer of the petitioners. Did the clerk and councilmen imagine for one moment that those little dodges were not apparent to outsiders as well as to councilmen? They can assaie them it required no extraordin- 1 ary aonteness of intellect to grasu the "true inwardunes" of those proceeding. Did it not show an utter misconception of the loving anxiety that fills true parent's hearts, for a councilman, a father too, to state that this petition was sent in proba bly, by women whp were obliged to wear their last year's bonnets and wished a more obscure thoroughfare than laii. street on which to display their faded finery and therefore, in their seolishness, had perse outed these poor women by asking for their removal. 'T0onf so 115O a5 011050 Who Will not see,' they thought, when another councilmas advised the W. C. T. U. to go about pray ing, weeping and imploring these women tc reform, overlooking the fact that the V C. T. U. did not ask for the privilege ol reforming these women, but for their re moval, that the children of the town might be kept from evil sight seeing. Thhl W. C. '1. U. and the national likewise, have cohsidered this question too manJ peats, to have much faith in reformatory methods for these women or for the men who support them. However, as the hon orable member stated he was perfectly sincere in all he said and truly desired to do the right thing, the W. C. T. U. stands ready, whenever he is pretared to open up such a crusade among the men, to offset his efforts with a thoroughly sincere and earnest attempt to reform these women. "What is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander," and certainly if these poor, deluded women need some one to pray for them, the men, who have sunk so low they do not see the degradation to themselvea, in encouraging these women to continue in a course of life that in reality is but tor ment to both body sad mind, need the prayers of all guileless men. The W. C. T. U. did mot present the peti tion in the interests of refoem, bet as that of prevention. It woald keep the pule mind of the child pure, and it does not believe in accustoming the mind to sin as a necessity in others, and farther still, it believes in training the boys to believe that born pure, as their sisters are, they can grow to pure manhood as their sisters oan grow to pure woman hood. It believes God made man in his own image, and by living aright in his triane nature, man can attain to the nobility of soul implanted at his birth. It believes also that: Vice is a monster of so ft:ihtful mien .s to b. hated, needs but to be seen. let sten too ott, familiar with her face, We first condemn, then pity, then embrace." It asks, with all the agonizing fears of a Christian mother's heart, that these sights and sounds, these'dreadful evils afflicting mind and body "unto the third and fourth generation" may be removed from the path of the children, not their children alone, bat in the interests of the city and suffer ing humanity, all children, and they do n t ask it to prosecute thoese women, but in the interests of self p eservation, which is the fist law of nature. "Onward and Upward" is the motto of nations, but can ort be carried out unless it is the motto of idividuals. That an evil has existed, is existing and will exist, is no reason why it rast exist or why we should "sit suapnely by" and say we can do nothing to abate the evil. No evil need exist in the maximum, if mankind resolutely and reasonably fights its existence. 'to return to the proceedings of the coun cil. The same member affirmed that by adopting the report of the committee all the terrible features of Clore street's sin would be abated, as all youths would be in their homes, and said the street would be under the strictest surveillance, that in fact it was already closely guarded. That same night a party went twice through Cloue street. The first time a boy of not fifteen was being eajoled into one of these honses and the second time the doors and windews of every house were wide open, the inmates lolling thereat while musie, idancing and hallooisg met the ear at every step. A crowd of negroes and Chinamen, larger than the obnoxious crowd which be tanyed the unoffenitinr cowboy, blockaded the sidewalk for some distance and not a policeman in sight either time, although the street was affirmed to be under the "strictest surveillance." Many of the councilmen :re doubtless interested in having your city become the capital of the state, IDo they think that the puerile proceedings of the last few a:-s sions and the reputaetlo this city already has for morality (I?) will be likely to secure it a majority of votes among the other cities of tee stats? Scarcely, while it plays battledo:e and ehuttleroek with the higlieet interests of humanity, and places money upon the throne witn passion the power behind it. I be W. C. T. U. appeal to all thoughtful minded citizens to sus tain them in their work and to demand a consistent enforaement of the laws, which would not endanger tlihe lives or the happi ness of the good womni of the town, as corn, of the eoounilmnon irm: libunt, on the rentrary, would very likeul prevent the city from dying of blood poisousua.
