HE CASE AGCAINST ANACONDA.
FACTS FOR EVERY VOTER TO CONSIDER1. READ CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR BALLOT. WILL YOU SMLL IT? Itrom Tea INDPLnn T, November 1.1 Montanians, is your state capital for ale? It not, isn't it about time you were aying so? A rich and powerful corporation-the richest and most powerful in the state -proposes to buy it, remove it far be 'ond the center of population, remote from through lines of travel; to place it on its own grounds, in a town abso lutely owned and controlled by itself. It proposes that when you go to trans adt publio business you shall stop at its own hotel, pay the rates it prescribes and, in your journeying to and fro, that you shall pay toll on a railroad line which it proposes to build and operate. This corporation has no argument to advance to you why the capital should be surrendered to, it; st knows, as you know, the absoluter unfitness of the town that it owns as a place for the seat of government--but it does not care a rap for that. It believes that you will sell it for a price! It proposes to pay that price, be it a quarter of a million, half a million or a million! Its paid agents lurk in every saloon and alleyway in every town in the state, flashing their rolls of greasy boodle in the faces of the venal and the weak, cor rupting the suffrage, debauching man hood. It says, in effect-this corporation which is owned and controlled by men who live in New York and San Fran oisco-"What do we care for the conve rtsence and welfare of the people of Montana; we don't live there; we don't intend ever to live there; some of these days the mine will work out; we know that; before that time comes we intend to sell out to foreign capitalists; in fact we have given one London syndicate an option on our property and borrowed several millions from it on a mortgage; we know what we are about; don't you see if we can get the capital located on our property we can get a bigger price when we come to sell? Yes, we intend to buy your capital. We have the stuff! It only takes 22,000 votes. We'll pay a million dollars for 'em, if necessary. You think you are the people of Mon tana, don't you? Well, there's where you are wrong. Marcus Daly is the people of Montana. We want the capital, and we're going to buy it. What are you going to do about it? Say!" Voters of Montana, what do you think of the situation? How will you like to have the Associated press flashing over the wires next Tuesday night a dis patch like this: STATE CAPITAL SALE. ANAcoNDA, Nov. 8.-The Anaconda Copper company, through Marcus Daly, has pur chased the capital of Montana and will re move it at once to a site near its works. Consideration, $1,000,000. This greatly en hances the value of the company's holdings and it is understood that the London sen dicate, which recently held an option on the property, will become the owners of the mines and works in a few days. The Eng lish capitalists are greatly pleased over the purchase of the capital by the company. 'the enormous output of the mines pays no taxes to the state-all the burdens of taxa tion being put upon other interests-and the location of the capital here insures for all time the defeat of any legislation that may be attempted to that end. Yes, voters of Montana, what are you going to do about it? DEER LO1)GE FOR HELENA. The voters of Deer Lodge should sup port Helena for the capital. We are ptactically out of the race, and made so through the underhanded work of Mar cus Daly. That man holds the vote of Deer Lodge county in the palm of his hand. Will the citizens of this city continue to be slaves to this arrogant magnate or will you support HIelena, the only city outside of Deer Lodge which rightfully deserves the seat of govern ment of this great state.-I)eer Lodge New Northwest, Nov. 5.

Nov. 5.1 TarE INDEPENDENT iv in receipt of the following courteous Irvitat!on issued by the Anaconda Copper company; Yoe are cordially invited to vote for Ann oJnda for the capital, at an election to ba heil by the people of the state of Montana, on Tuesday, November , 1890, from 8 a. m. till a p. in. We feel obliged to decline this invita tion for several reasons. 1. No cause is set forth why the cap ital should be removed from Helena. 2. No reason has ever been given why it should be located at Anaconda. 8. Ananonda is remote froplf toe con ter of the state, both as to population and geography. 4. It is inconvenient of access. It is not on a single through lipe of travel, east, west, north or south. Only a sin gle spur railroad gives it connection with the outer world. 5. Anaconda has but one hotel and that one does not run the year round. Accommodations in the town are wholly inadequate for any considerable num ber of people. 6. Anaconda has no buildings suited for a meeting place for the legislature, for the various state departments and offices. The state would immediately have to go to a large expense to provide for these. 7. Anaconda is not a permanent place. It is supported by a copper mine, which, like all other mines, will some day be worked out, and that at no dis tent period. 8. Anaconda is owned and absolutely controlled by a rich and powerful cor poration which completely dominates in all its affairs, civil, political, business and social. The municipal government, the shops, the stores, the water and light supplies, the hotel, the transporta tion lines, the press, public opinion it self, are under dictation from "The Works." It is a one man town, through and through, an undemocratic, unre publican monocracy. 9. Anaconda is not a Montaqa town. Three-fourths of it, including the mine, is owned in New York and San Fran cisco by men who have no homes here and no interest in our affairs. They have already mortgaged their holdings for $6,C00,000 to an English syndicate and the town may at any time pass into the possession of alien landlords. The capital of Montana should be in a town owned by Montanians. 10. Anaconda would be q dangerous town in which to attempt legislation. We have already seen this copper cor poration, which owns it, strangle an eight-hour law and attempt to dictate executive policy. With the capitol building as an annex to "The Works" no other interest but the mining inter est-and no mining interest but the cop per interest-would have a voice in leg islation. The whole atmosphere of pol itics would take on a coppery hue. The state capital should be a city in which the stockgrower, the ranchman, the lumberman, the business man, the work ingman, would be at home and find fair play. 11. Anaconda is a town of freaks and uncertainties; where labor thrives to day and is in distress to-mosrow; where a whimsical management, blowing alter nately hot and cold, keeps everybody dancing to most uncertain fiddling; where shut-downs come without warn ings, and where wages are scaled down as abruptly. Yes, a bad town for the working man! Other reasons, longer than the moral code, might be assigned, but we trust those we have given will sutlice. We beg, therefore, to extend to Messrs. Haggin, of New York, Tevis, of San Francisco, and Daly, of Bitter R]ot, composing the Anaconda Copper com pany, the assurance of our distinguished consideration and to inform them, after due reflection, that we cannot accept their kind invitation-not this year, nor any other year. the Popular Uraned Central lar. King & Adams, to merly of the White Btar, have purchased the interest of W. T. Phillips in the Grand Central bar. It is needless to say that these well known and popalar proprietors will maintain the repo tation ot this ilacr. lThe bar will always be found stocked with the ohoicelt liquors and the best cigare to be found in the market. By lonu experience the prolprie t.rs find that courteonus troatmeUt, ,v1unlt service and careful attention to all de mands make business, and vilsitors to the to the Grand Central bar will find all these requirsments. DRPRICE'S J aPowder. Thewonly Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.-No Ammonia; No Alutm. Slned in Millions of Hom·--ao Years the Standard. AMUIRMBINT$. T mern's asIllsh gaIety gICrls, the bon quet of female loveliness that graced Ker nan's Monumental theater was certainly an improvement on the week before. The "oaene in Venice" was rung up on a parlor rehearsal, in which the girls were die. tribeuted alound the stage In a rainbow of mother habbards. Nellie Russell directed the rehearsel and did a trombone solo, which was applauded. A tambourine dance by the Montain silters was very greceful, while Frank Barth in black face and Frank Lalorase, an Irishman, made fun during the rehearsal. The serpetntine dance by Nellie Russell, Dell Fleming and lose Montain, in flowing, gauzy skirt' and pink tiuhts made a hit. Fred Barth, who was billed asa "'legmania comedian," is a conto:. tlouist of no mean ability, and tied himself in several knotty positions without anyu convenienoe. Frank Lalor and Ada Gill sketch artists, while Manvel and Loraine as mid-air grotesques were funny. Lillie May Hall, a shapely burlesque in fetching costumes, was well received, as well as the trapeze artists, Clark and luzillliane, a man and woman, who did some clever mid air work. The show closed with an after piece in which the "female form divine" displayed itself.-Brltimore uun. Tihe democratle rltly at the auditorium to-night will b an rouser. FREE FROM CHICAGO. Northern Paclfa Will Not Charge on Re turning Exhibits. The Northern Pacific freight department lias issued a circular announcing that it will carry free all returning goods exhibited at the Ohleaoro exposition from Minnesota. North' Dakota, Matnitoba and Montana, east of and'ifeluding Garrison and points on the ModtAnl Union railway that have paid fall tartif rates to Chiocago on the same'. n order to secure the benefit of this free transportation, however, it wi, be neces sary for the shipper to present at the time of shi,ment a receiptal bill showing that the charges to the exposition were paid, that the goods were actually exhibited and that they have not changed hands. As it is recognized that perishable freight cannot be thus returned, the benefit of the reduc tion is extended in the first place, and only one-half the regulor rates romr points in the above territory will be charged. By peishable artic.es are included all agricul tural and horticultural products, botanical and mineral specimens, samples of cereals and grasses and fish for aquarium and mu seum exhibition.

A number of the business men on Upper Main street Lave made arrangements for displaying the returns of the election. An immense stereoptieon has been engaged and will be placed on the second floor of the Headquarters building. A special wire has been run into the room where the stereopticon is, and an operator will be there to receive the news direct from all over the country. As soon as received, the returns will be flashed from the stereo: ticon to a large white sheet in front of the White House, across the street. The etereopticon will throw a picture sixteen feet in diameter. To fill in any possible gare between the returns, the stereopticon will be kept going with views of various kinds, including the prominent business houses in town. It is the intention to keep up the display for Tuesday and Wednes day nights sure, and if there should be oc casion for at, the stereopticon will keep going every night until all doubt of the re sult is removed. lutecher & Iraedley. 10 li!ro !way. have always lead anc are stilL leading in low ricees.

NEW ORLEANS, Nov. 6.-The strike as sumed alarming proportions to-day and the prospect is that all the city's industries, with possibly one or two exceptiofns, will be at a standstill to-morrow. 1 he conference between the merchants and laborers came to an abrupt end this afternoon. The em ployers declined to accede to the requests of the employee for immediate arbitration, and all negotiations for a settlement of the strike are at an end. Even the typograph. ical union, which has been holding out against the strike, to-day decided togo out, The international electrical workers having charge of the city electrical lighting also go out. Arrangements have been made to call troops out at a moment's notice. Street car travel is entirely suspended. The labor committee filed a oopy of their demands with the rioverno to-night, which is a call for arbitration as to time, wages, and unionism. The merchants replied by submitting a paper to withdraw the de mand that the men return to work during the pendency of arbitration and toarbitrati time and wages, declining to consider the question of unioraism.
