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

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

[From T.a ImDPvumnonT,. 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
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
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
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
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
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
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 ELECTION RETURNS.
To Be Displayed by Stereopticon on Upper
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.

the prospect is that all the city's industries,

between the merchants and laborers came
to an abrupt end this afternoon. The em

of the employee for immediate arbitration,
and all negotiations for a settlement of the
strike are at an end. Even the typograph.

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

question of unioraism. The governor re
