Mlnsoula, Nov. 5.--At the close of
Hion. Hlal H. C(orbetlts address on the
"'Political Issues of the Day," at the
opera house, by previous arrangements
the house was given over to the friends
of Helena. Heveral prominent Missoula
business men took seats on the plat
form, nearly the full floor space of the
stage being (ecupled. None of the aud
ience left the hall. Hon. F. 0. Higgins
was introduced by Hlon. T. C. Marshall,
who irntroducied him as a native born
Montanian. Mr. Higgins stated that in
taking up the cause of Helena he had
united with some whom hehad fought
politically for fifteen years. lie did not
consider it a fight between two cities,
or a question as to whether Helena or
Anaconda had been themost friendly to
Missoula. It was a fight between the
people of a great state and a giant cor
poration, a fight to save this common
wealth from the baneful influence of
that corporation, a corporation that In
structed its employes to vote the repub
lican ticket one year, the democratic
another; that he had seen reach out to
put its fingers on petty offices in obscure
mining camps.
As to Anaconda's friendship for Mis
soula and Matts' assistance in getting
the university, he said he knew that
Prof. Hamilton, of Missoula, had writ
ten and collected the facts of the speech
Matts had made for the university in
thelegislature. On the fort question,
Mr. Higgins handled Ex-Congressman
Dixon roughly, showing a letter of
Dixon on the subject, and many facts
which disproved any claims of friend
ship for Missoula made by Anaconda.
He showed how members of the legisla
ture from Anaconda had voted against
Missoula Interests on questions which
had come up when Mr. Higgins himself
was a member of that body.
But the speaker stated that the true
question before the people was one to
place the seat of state government in a
city not dominated by one man and one
corpor ation; to put it where any one
could go and engage in any legitimate
pursuit without consulting the Ana
conda company or its management.
Mr. Higgins made what was perhaps
the best speech the people of this city
have heard him make, and he was ap
plauded to the echo.
He was followed by O. W. McConnell
and Hon. Thos. H. Carter. Mr. Carter
was frequently applauded and pre
sented arguments not before heard in
this city on this subject.

Special to The Independent.
Livingston. Nov. 5.-From the outset
of the capital fight It has been claimed
by those who have been working in the
interest of Anaconda that that city
could win without eastern Montana. In
Livingston the advocates of Anaconda
have said repeatedly that the vote of
Park county was not wanted, as Ana
conda would win on the west side, but
these men have suddenly changed their
views, and to-night they are out using
every endavor to cut down the large
majority which is promised Helena to
morrow. John It. Toole arrived here
this afterrmnon and has taken charge
of the Anaconda campaign In Livings
tin. Mlney has been freely distributed
to-night, and it is no secret that five
and ten dollars apiece will be paid for
Anaconda votes.
Word has been given out among the
workers that Anaconda is defeated un
less the vote in Park county can be
changed. That Mr. Toole is honest in
making this statement is borne out
by the fact that a barrel has been
tapped right in Livingston, with the be
lif no dloublt that a liu'ge' per cent of
the ito heire' an lie bought, and thus
tchange the rsult. i olut tio-mor,'ow these
Anaciiondi he.,lero will be fooled. The
citlznl of Livingstoiin are awake, they
will see to it that i no replresentative of
the Alnlconedla llining company can
come to LivingstIlon a2nd1 purchase any
,. ti, l-on lf th voitie. Thie sentiment is
ichanging every hour for Helene. and
Ill.ts 'r fr'eely offeredl 2 that 1Park couIn
ty will give lHlehna 700 majority.

The Truth Plainly Told by Presi
dent A. S. Bigelow of the
Boston & Montana.
The Following Direct and Emphatic Denial of the
Malicious Campaign Lie Regarding the Boston
& Montana Company, Put in Circulation by the
Anaconda Boomers, Should be Read by Every
Business Man and Laboring Man in the State
of Montana.
BoITos, Mass., Nov. 3, I894.
J. A. CORAM, care C. 11. Palmer:
You can deny oflicially that the Boston & Montana and the
Butte & Boston Companies ever approached or authorized any
approach to Mr. Ilaggin or anybody else in regard to wages in
Montana. The only information we have on this subject is that
we were told that aMR. DALY HAD SAID IF WE W\ANTED "1O MAKE
ANY MOVE IN TllS DIRECTION lIE COI'ID NOT PARTICIPATE UNTIL
AFTER ELECTION, AS IHE DID NOT W\ANT TO LOSE. TIlE LABOR VOTE,
BUT TIIAT AFTER ELECTION lE IIIMSELF WOUI.D START TIIE MOVE
MENT, IF WE WOUI.I) AGREE IN WRITING TO SUPPORT hIM. We have
documentary evidence to prove the falsity ot statement made in
Great Falls Tribune article, Nov. 2, but cannot forward them to
you in time for the election, as was well known by those who pub
lished the article. You can publish our letter of Sept. I8, to all our
superintendents, showing how long ago we went on record on this
subject. This is merely to give you an oflicial denial of the story
if you need it. WIre acknowledgement of receipt of this imme
diately. A. S. BIGELOW,
President Boston & Montana Mining Company.
'The following is thle private letter of A. S. Bigelow, which the
above telegram releases for publication:
BUTTE & BOSTON MININING COMPANY.
Otlice I19 W\iashington St.
BosriNs, MIass., Sept. IS, 1S9t.
Cn \IiS 11. PAI.MIn, EsQ., Supt., Ilutte City, Montana:
1)ear Sir---This is to inform you that we are utterly opposed
to Anacondla bec'omin the Capital of Montana. We consider that
it is essential to the best interests of the \\hole business coummunity
of the state that the t.lpital should remain where it has been for
several years past. P'lease, therefore, throw what influence you
may have against Anaconda becoming the Capital. WVe wish 3you
to bear in mind that we always object to any of our superintendents
busying themselves in politics, and if this was simply a political imat
ter, such as an election to any ollice, we should say nothing about
it. But in the Imatter of the location of the ('apital we feel that i
is important that it should be at a place where aill the interests of
the state would he equally and fairly represented, iand that it should
not be located at any place which might be distinctly under the
control of any one col poration.
We have sent a copy of this to all our superintendents having
charge of our v.arious interests in Montana.
A. S. BI(;ELOW,
Treasurer Butte & Boston Mining Company.

the Anaconda company had so much

Great Northern strike occurred and
business in this city was paralyzed, a
