Hollandise potatoes, lettuce., olives, sweet potatoes. lee cream, oaks, crackers, eheese, fruit and oogee; and easterne, sherry, olaret, champagne and brandy. The whole was prepared in the well known style of the Helea., and the tables were beuatfiilly denorated. After the elaborate bill of fare had been thoroughly disacussed, along with some memories of the days when the members were muoh further apart than on last nlght's oclaelon, the speech making began. The first address was by Hena Cornellus Hedges, the reti inj president. He said that when the eoranlzation of the soelety was first seuggeted the ea liest response of the feelings of all was that there was mere they wished to forget than remember In their connection with the first state legisla-ls ture. But things were different when the as vsillanoe and restraints of party eroed and disoipline were removed and the repre sentative exehanges for the individual char acter with the perspective of time and distanes to smooth out the wrinkles sad ruffl,.. The sneaker said the first legisla tare was eat.t ed to the negative p aleo of having done less in the time it served than any that Montana over had, and pe hops less than any other in any of the states. home thought at the time the credit of the state weald be ruined forever if some legis lation was not had, but strange to relate is fared better by the neglect and failure than it has sines. The new constitntion was chock full of legislation, a complete storags battery, ample for any emergency. "Our ex. e-sence then and since," said the speaker, "has begotten the convietion that the else tion of United btates senators had better be left to the people." Judge Hedges thee reviewed some of the first legislative assem blies of Montana territory, inclading the regular seseions and several . that ware "rather exit, ordinary." Coming down to the I st state legislature, he said: "Reverting to our particular expo lenase, after the stormy scenes through wh;eh we passed when we first should have some together, there were some halcyron days at the elose when the Areo of passion had burned out and the commandilg voice of our constituents beoame audible above the importunities of senatorial aspirants and political bosses. In those few days it was amaz no how the elouds lifted and the ho, Izon expanded when we had resolved to dismiss contentions and attend to the bus ness on which we could all agree. If we had met in the spirit in which we parted what might we not have ecoomplishedl We could certainly have done mo.e and better work. But would the people of Mon. tana in any other way have learned how little they depend upon the legislative as sembly for their wslfae and prosperity? "Even our short-somings and mistakes and inxexnsable abandonment of plain duty, serve at times to enforce a valuable lesson. Better Is it by far to endeavor to turn to profit our errors than to seek to justify and defend them. Good lubhters geaerally make good friends when the fight is over. -urely we have this bond of friendship." Ez-Gov. Carpenter, Ia the absence of Gov. laiokrds, responded to the toaet of iMontans. He said Montana was too great a state for one to extend himself over in a short time. He had been a member of the constltutional oontention ealled on to lay the foundation; the first legislative sesemn bl had the work of bullding the super structare. It was a remarkable body. It appeared that there was a larger numbesr slented then there were seats to fill. io as they thoaght one body could not do the whole wo k they resolved themselves into two houses. But there was only one senate. and it wasn't always on the ground. [Laughter.] so they reconstraucted that bod , too. Lefer ing to A. F, Bray the governor said the stone whteh the builders rejected hbd become the head of the eorner, sitne he was pretty nearly the whole ef the last legislla tore. [Leshter.J Only one of the first assembly, James Moiteeth, had some bask to the second. Incidentally the oevernor r marked thot it was doubtful if any of the last weuld come back. In coaenlusion he said that the constitutional convention thought they had a p otty ftel Intrumen. When the snpreme coart get through con struing it they would have to eoonstruet it to show what itts framersiotended. LLaugh ter and appleNasel. "The school 1aw" was responded to by .. H. Hower, who traced the vrious pieoes of ilgislation from 1874, when Moe tans had a widely bcatto ed popalation of 21,000, down to to-day. On the law whleh I rovided for separate sohoola for white and oolored he said it had been repealed, but that it was subsequently re-aieted as part of auother law, and was yet on the books though few knew it end none observed I. Comirn to the matter of hilgher edneation he lsid he soasidered it a mistake to have separaterd the varlose state lastitations, but it was now too late to remedy it until after there hla.l been an immense outlay on those now io existence. In sonelaslon he lpoke highly of thae loyal aspport which all Iontanianll gave o thLe cause of publie eodueation. Heo. T. O. Power spokL on "Irsligation." He said songress had done nothing as yet for th gilest quaestleon. The FLity-Iet eonroese bed no committee os that sbjleet. There was a semmitteo In the Illtv-soecond. Ieterring then to the irrigatlion oaventlion Ia Helena he said one efaet had ben to ebsolut-ly kill in the latter songree all attempts at legislalLtion by a rig sm p.sel of Nevada, Califonla and Utah men. The committee was eontrelled by that aliqus. He thought some good results might be ezpeaotd from the presant coaress. Still the west started cnt kandl oepped by men Ila pewo who were et Li sympathy with the movement. HIe s tarred, he said, to the seerotery of ngills to ,l who had told him in resent Salk that he "did not think Immigration would do o muesh ood." A. M. Holter responded to "our mlning ainerete,." He slld the year 1IWJ was probably the moseet proeaerous the minalg lateresee of MHsleaa had ever had; and the first six months of this year were very eat Istactory until the trouble over whieh thSi had so control had struck the country. no then reviewed the war on silver, fomu the time the Rothelhilds and the Barlas had parliameat demonetise it after the battle of Waterloo, down to the slmalar actlon of Germeny after theFranmio P- aslsin war, to the erime of 1878 and to the present day. He said siliver had to take the blame right along for alything that was not right in lneaes, a claim thuat he denoaceld as untrue. "Butto andl Her Mines" was responded to by A. F. Bray. He said: "Butte is the irest minag centler around whbich the opes of thoueands of our people have Ilua tored, and in bwhse proslerasy they are all vitally interusted, If Butte were not on the map of the eeontry. Montana would not now be enrolled amounat the sisterhood of states. Twenty-five year eago Batte was a straggling little pleeer mining camp in Deer LoJge county. Little did its few inbabitsnt dream that the hills about and above tern wea, ribbed with bands of silver end copper, the loosenina of which would build a Ireat city, and invite vast rail oadsyeteme to the pilose of their abode. Sinoethen her growth and prosl erity has been simply marvelous. There is hut one Butte. It. counlerpart cannot exist, for nowhere in the known uni verse is there sneh a combiaa tion of diversified mineral wealth. abandalho of excesllent waler, aceessibility to fuel and climatic advantages as eiest in our city. The almighty bent down the bseks of the ureat Rookies at that poinat of their lengthy chain that a beautifl and wealthy city might find a resting place upon its eternal hills. The recent advreee eliver legislation has somewhat crlppled Batte, but like a wounded glant it still makes its preseneo felt in the finanelal world. The present pay roll of Butte is es timated at $600,000. Its beaks are as solid as the sternas bills and met the late mon etary pasnei with anlowered eolors. "The outlook may appear g oomy to the week In faith, but to tile obterving mind it has a glerloune uture. The we id must have its precious metals. Its silver, gold and so,.per will be demanded by the arti san, the manufaeturer and the people at large. Unfavorable legislation may confine our silver to the bowels of the earth for a season, bat he exigencies of a hgllher civili zation and the demnands of an international comm roee will nnlock our treseales and seitter them to the four ornelse of the earth. F ee silver oeinage is among the Inervtables of the fnture, and when by the force of a fast growing sentiment, it shall be establlished by irrevorable law, Butte will again become the Meooa of the eall talist as well as the prospector, end shall number her inhabisants by the hundreds of thousands." Hon. C. W. Hoffman spoke to "The Aglriultural Oo!lege;" W. C. Whaley to "Our Live Stock Induelr ," and Win. Thompson to "The Absent Unes." WARInG.N TO POW EERLY. His Career as Dictator Must Come to an End. PI-IL&DaLPEIA. Nov. 23.-At the meetiUa of the general assembly, Kaighte of Labor, to-day, the eleqtion of olfers continued. There were two eandidates for eaneral worthy foreman, Michael J. Bishop, of laesebahnsetts, recognized as the candidate of the Hayes faction, and the present in cumbent of the ooffice, Hugh Cavanaugh, of Cincinnati. ' 1 election stood: Bihoep twenty-five and Cavanaugh twenty-one. The Hayes forces again carried their eandi date to victory when the el otion of general secretary and t;reasurer was ordered, the vote stending: Hayes twenty-five, Martln twenty-one. One of the anti-adminiltration delegates said if the electiesn of general maste, work man had gone over until to-day Powderly would have shared Cavanaugh's fate. "It's Powderly's methods we are fighting more than the man himself, and he now has fair warning to mend his ways or got eat. He has been dictator, and anssmed to rua thingos to suit himself long enough," "The result of the eleotion is not a som promise then?" "No, tndeed, it s a strallght out fight for eupremeo); that's all there Is about it." Master Workman Powderly, in exercising the pre oratives of his offies this aftelrnoon in the general assembly, submitted eight names to be voted for in the election of the exeeutive board, It Powderly ln slts upon the nominations being voted upon, it is said, by one of the delegRatee close to Hayes, that it is possible a second resolution will be introduced declaring vacant the office Powderly now holds. It Is understoed by all the delegates theat Sov eigan, of Iowa, in such emergency would consent to again become a candidate for the ffice of general master workmlan. Yoneg Carlin All Right.

EYERYBODY IS GUESSING. Possibilities of the Situation at Honolulu Set All the Quid ljunos Agog. Secretary Gresham Discredits Some Remarks That Are Attributed to Willis. No Farther News From Hewall Until Dee 7, and Then It Will Come From Auckland. WAa~rntrorvo, Nov. 23.-There wass nota ble ilok of exeitemont in the reception of Hawallan news to-day. The copyright let ter froo. Honolulu was read to Oresham by an Aseoaiated pris representtive. At that portion of it where Willis Is reported to have said be would be glad to see the American flag over Hawaii and every other island in the Paofic, the see stary said: "I don't believe that." Even as subse quently modilied by Willie, with the addi tional clause. "under proper conditions," the secretary said the minister must have been incorrestly reported. "Willis is a capable man." he said. "He onoht not to have talked on that subject at all, and I don't believe he did." Uj on reading the statement that Admiral Skerrett was re called for attending a ball given by the Annexation club, Oresham said: 'Absurd." The statement contained in the letter re ceived in Ban Fransleso from "a private cor respondent in Honolulu that the Irovis ional government was under arms all night preceding the departure of the Alameda, attracted the secretary's special interest. "If that is truae" he said, "ls is not likely year eorrespondent would have failed to know it and speak of It in his letter. I think there are many inasourate stats ments in the letter." Regarding the assertion that Willis said he would do nothing until he heard further from the state department, he declined to say anything. The statement reported as coming from the Philadelphis that some action was to be taken drting the week following the departure of the Alameda is reas ded as signifidant, tallying as it does tith the well defined rumor ei-oulated in Washington on Tuesday that the queen was restored that dar. At the Hawaiian legation Minister Thure ton had nothing to say on the news re ported. W. N. Armstrong, of the Hawaiian legation, said: "Friends of the provisional government feel that any delay that brings nearer the time when the provisional ger ernmeat shall reseive news of the reeeotion accorded by the public to Secretary Gres ham's letter gives added asenraneo that the plan to restere the se-queen will be frus trated. For this reason, the news of the past weak in Honolulu will be looked for wlit special laterest. The earliest date at wiebh news san reaseh the ontside world by ordinary channels ie Dee. 7, when the steamer Warimos will arrive at Auckland, when news will be eabled. News may be received via Vaneouver. Dec. 9." It was largely a day of speeulation at the eapitol regarding the situation in Hawali. It seems the report whieh came by way of New Zealand that Clevelani had determ ined to restore the queen was a surprise to the administration. The manner in which Willis has been performin his mission only adds more mystery to the situation. It has been the theory that it would be the polley of Willis to allow the tension to become so great that supporters of the queen would organize and establish her government, and before there could be a clash between the queen's supporters and the forces of the provisional government, but upon a demonstration being made the marines from the Philadelphia would bhe landed for the purpose of protecting American life and property, and when the queen had accumulated easufiet strength to warrant it he would recogniae her. Theeries and speculstione were indulged in all the more because, up to 5:30 this afternoon, it was denied at the state doe partment that Willis had made any oem manleation to the department by the Ala meda. It Is believed, however, that some official information wasreeoived, the nature of which it is impossible to obtain. The dispatobeh to-day seem to indiesate to the administration what they have heretofo e asserted, that the provisional government still stands beeaose it feels that it is backed by the moral support of the United States, and thus far its acts have been approved by this government. At the same time it is plainly evident that the armed resist ene to the royalists which the provisional government is making gave the officials of the administration no little concern. MUTUAL AVYESION. Cherished by Oresham and Thurston for e·aob Other. WAsnnroTol , Nov. 23.-There is no doubt that Mlnister Therston and Secretary Gresham are persons non grate to one an other, but each would prefer to have the announcement of the fact from the other. It would probably not distress Thurston if Gresham were to send him his pas.rorte. This would admittedly be an act of war, and would place the administration still forther on the defensive. But Gresham hae no intentlon of giving Thurston an oerpor tonity to be made s msrtyr of and will not send him his passports. On the other hand, it is probable that Gresham would not be sorry It 'Thrston were to demand hise reseporte. His post tion with relation to the state department Ic anomalous. Dilomntle ofiears of the United States have arraigned him on serlones charges, to which his statement wae a reply. This is snileient ground for him to base s demand for hsle passports nn on. The intention to commit an unfriendly act upon his government has not been com monicoated to him offleiril. aned Ie, there. fore, according to diplomatle usage, un known to him; but he has ample grounds for demndings ainformation of offiial couroes, and if is refuseld him, calling for his passports. But the Hawaliian minllster will probably not give ap the advantage he hans ina being in diplomratie relations with this government, even though they arse somewhat strained. Batlsfratero'y -port From Wltle. Wosirmnocoro, Nov. 28-3-Seoretary Gresham reeived a cipher meseage this afternmoon fromn Minister Wllis. giving a complete se port of the Hawaiian situation np to the time of the departure of the Alameda. As to the eset eantents of the meessage, no one outside of the president and cabinet knows. The feact that the message w:s reiveted was Riven out, however, and (t was aleo ennoanoed that its contents were hieshly sataisfetory. This ie iotsrpreted by otilels outatie the eabiant to meau that Willis has complete I all srranrements for the rateoratton of Lilinoaklani to the Ha watian throne; it i' 'also cllaimed that should Minister Willis eantinue to be as seuOseesal ta earrying eat his lnstruetions s he has ben up to the day the Alans da salled, a vast majority of the Amerlean people will take sideas with the preildent snd sustalin him i the corsel he has pur sued, whee ther boome apprised of the fats.e THRIIEE DEAD, FIVE MISdING. And a Property Lose of $700,000-Die estrous Fire at Detroit. DeTRoIT, Mihob., Nov. 28.-One of the worst flite Detroit has ziperlenoed In many years complotely destroyed the five-story bullding occupied by Edson, Moore & Co., wholesale dry goods, and damaged several adjacent buildings, casilna a total lose of $700,000.

An ambolance carried him to the hospital, where he died. Firemen spread a net to catch McKay, who fell into it. His injaries were such that he too died soon after being taken to the hospital. Another man was then seen near on upper window. His strength ap parently gave out, for after an efot to raise himself he slowly sank backlaid dis appeared from view. He was thought to be Edward Genther. After the tfro it became evident that Genther, Rider, Volt, Markey, Baker and Kirchner were misasln. It is thought the flames started in a lot of cotton batting on the top floor need for packing. James L. Edson. senior member of the firm, said the loss on stock would be about $800,000, well covered by insurance. John J. Barley's tobacco works suffered a loss of $25,000. covered by insurance. The loss of the De troit Lithographing company is estimated at $20,000. insured. Freidenberg & Speok, furnishing unod., were damaged to the amount of $30,000, Insuranee $25,000.

Signor Imbriani, radieal leader. made a violent speech charging the minis try with leading Italy upon the read to ruin and offered to sappqW any motion whose object was the impeachment of the cabinet. The report of the bank commis slon was read. Briefly, the report says the commission had no dooumentary evidence of political simony in the relations of the banks with the government, but theeta had been a syatematio disregard of order and regularity in the action of the government towards the banks sinee 1880. The commission expresses strong disap proval of the concealment of a substantial portion of Bisani's report on the Banes Romana, and animadverte upon the fact that some tanlongos had seized the papers withheld from magistrates who were de puted to conduct the inquiry into the criminal aspects of the bask scandal. '1 he reading of the report ptodaced a deep im pression. The president refused to permit any disacnsion and declared the sltting closed, amid hiases, p otests and genoral uproar. DEFEATED BREWERS.

He Would Aot When the Time Came, but Would Set No Time. The Government as the Watch for an Up rising is Behalf of the Deposed Queen. ICopyright. 18$, by the Assoelated 'reesl HOnOLULU, Nov. 16.-The main shange to the political situatlon since the Australia sailed has been one of inereased strain and greater basiness depresnion. Sine his for mal eall to present his credentials Minsleter Willis has not communicated officially with the government. The most signiflant hap. peoing occurred last Monday, when a com mittee of the American league, a lately organised auxiliary of thbe Anexation club, called on the new minister. The commit tee stated that the league earnestly desired that the islands should become part of the United Htates, and to that end the organi zation would support the previsional gov ernment in all honorable means for the accomplishmeat of annexation, and would serve the minister if at any time he saw fit to command them. The committee was pledged to secreer as to Willis' answer, but the Associated proe is enabled after a eareful comparison of the versions of the mlnister's remarks as remembered by three of the committee, to give the followlang nearly if not gaite verbatim report of his reply. After welcoming the committee and speaking in pleasant terms of his visit to Hawaii. Willis said: "I am an ardent American. I would like to see the stars sand stripes waving, not only over Hawaii, bat over all the islands of the Paeifcl ocean, or any other territory beneficial to the United States. I have my instructions, which I eannot divulge. You will understand this. But this I ean say that the new policy of the United States is already formulated regarding these Islands. aend that nothing that sen be said or done here or there can avail anything now. I do not come here as did Blount. I come as an exesative ofieer. I come to set, and when the proper time arrives I will aet. I am sorry I eaneot tell yeou when or how. I wish you to understand, however, that knowing the poliey of the United States, I could not have eaccepted the position of ex eeoutve officer had it beeoon in sonfiiet with the principles I hold. Americanse here will have nothing to regret. While performing nmy duties in earrying out the United States pelicy, I shall have no need of aid from you or any other resident Amerieans. How ever I wish to state positively that any eat side interference will not be tolerated by the United States." The previsional government oonsiders Willis' remarks as slgnifiean Thege.eral belief among Americans is that a United Sgttes proteetorate will shortly be estab lishod ever the provisional government, with the understanding that a stable gor ernment will be organized thereunder with In a limited period. Some are of the opin ion that aetion will be taken between the sailing of the Alameda and the arrival of the Monowal on the 23d. Willis' retiooees and delay in action have greatly increased the politieal strain, and rumors of all sorts are thick. The government has been on the look out for threatened attempts of the royalists to seize the exeetive building in the be lief that if they san hold it the United States would recognise them as the exist ing government In consequence an extra guard of sharpshootes wase stationed in the executive building, and thirty rounds of extra ammnnitioa issued to the citinens 'reserve. Just before the Alameda sailed the Aleo. elated press correspondent asequainted Willis with the report of his speech to the American league. 5e said the frst part should be qualified to read that he '"would like to see the stars and stripes waving over Hawaii under proper conditions." He did not say the result here would be such as Americans would not regret, and added that nothing would be done, nor tould any action be takes until he agalsin heard from Washington after the Alameda left. His last words to the Assoeeated press were that any tr ouble precipitated by either side would be stopped at once by the United States ferces. This morning President Dole visited the United :tates ship Philadeluhia, and was given a national salute, coming and going. Monday morning the ex-qusen unexpectedly ealled on Wiliii at the legation and re mained there twenty minutes. Willis has not yet returned the eall. The queean' action created unfavorable comment. It surprised royalists as well as annexationists. TheCommerlial Advertiser this morning. in an extract, publishes a dispatch olipped from the New Zealand Herald of Nov. 4, reeesved by the steamer Alameda on ar rival here. The dispatch is dated Wash ington. Noe. 2, and says President Cleve land is drafting a messaege to songress in favor of restornag the monarehy in Hawaii. When Minisoer Willis' attention was called to this he declined to express an opinion. It is the belief here that the dispatoh Is unfounded. At the last moment before the Alameda sailed the provisional governmnat deelared that it has no'further information, but was certain at will be able to maintain peao. NOT IN tYM'ATHY WITH fIM.
