At this point the boulevard branches into two' smaller roads that enclose the parade ground, around which the different post build Ings are situated. This parade ground is 400 by 1,000 feet in size, and will be graded to an even surface, but will have the gradual slope to the east that the natural profiles give it. On entering the post proper actually no sign of any fortification Is visible. The only mounted gun that will be seen will be at one end of the parade ground, with which the old oustom of the sun rise and sunmt salute will be kept up.

While every election district in Mon tana was closely watched on Tuesday last by the managers of both Ana conda and liHelena, it was Bliver 1How county that was looked to the most closely, not only by the managers of the campalgns of the respective cities, but by the people of the whole state. That county had a registration of nearly 11,500, and if the Anaconda claim proved correct, that that city would get 85 per cent of the vote of Butte, it was the general be Ilef that Anaconda lwould wil lthe capital. On the other hand, Helena claimed she would get 40 per cent of the vote, and would by thus keeping the Anhaconda majority in that rkounty down, win the tight. The results show thait the Importance of the viote oif ill ver Blow coutily was not overestimated, becat'use had the claims of the Ana condau mantagrs held good lHelena would have lost. As It was Helena did git 40 per cent of the vote, and thus won the capital conte'st. How did she' gt IIt, and how was It that Anitianla was .ui mintaken lin her ,leaiuhtt Ionl? are two quest'tinns askedl bly thoiusandiiH of people. The story of the election it Ittllte,. and the work thnt precededi electioni will pI'' halps answter bloth inquiries. That Ana iconihL had every reitranl to be jusltified III Iltkllng the claims she did every ,one will admit when it is said that there are in the emph loy of the Anaconda Cilnlmilany In Hilver low ctounty not less than 4,000 men. It was reasonable to supplose, that 90 per cent of these would vote for the copper city, hut they didl inot, bencause what is known its the "hill" prerlinet, loealted at the A na condu mnl', gave AnacIndla only 865 per cent of its vote, and Helena .t5 per centli. iOut iof thell 4,000 nmen cln pliyed by the Anaionnda company there were :3i per centI who were of tihe coin trrly sart-they knew their' enmpllolyers expectiI t henm to votea for their city, anld luit oif natutral cointrartlness they diid list the opposite thing tIl show their iindep.tndeii c'ie, lmpeti'ally as there wais no way of checkling them as lt hlow lthely Vtote.l.

J.t'oram, they did a large shar' of the work that saved the capital to As far as contemplated the post will be a two battalion or one regimental Infantry iost. On the right on enter ing and facing west over the parade ground, are the band quarters and four large double barracks. At the upper end of the parade ground are the guard house, administration building, hon pital, and back of these, on a small street of their own, is the row of non commissioned staff omficers' quarters, that comprise three double sets of buildings and one single let for the hos pital steward. On the left of the parade and facing east as well as toward the city of Hel ena, situated the most elevated of any of the buildings, are the officer quar ters, that take up the entire length of the parade ground as well as running back at the center and forming a loop or court in which, it is contemplated, will be an ornamental band stand, fountains and Irrigated flower gardens, shade trees, etc., etc. This group of buildings will coptain ten double sets of ompers' quarta.W.., tWQ~. , feld Helena. They had check lists of the fraudulent registration, and on Mon day they caused the arrest of one of the most active workers for Anaconda, Otto Flotow, on the charge of illegal registration. This action had the ef fect of keeping a great many of the illegal voters away from the polls, and those who did attempt to vote in a majority of cases did not carry it any farther than an attempt. At every polling precinct these young men had two watchers on the inside and as many on the outside. They had lists of the illegal voters, and when one would show up a word of warning was sufficient to have him forego his in tention to vote. These young men staid right in and about the polling places until the capital vote was counted and put down in ink, thus preventing man ipulation of the results, if there had been any attempt to do so. But the Judges at the Butte precincts showed every disposition to do what was fair. and there was not a single occasion to accuse any election officer of attempted unfair dealing. The great work for Helena in Butte on election day and before was do.e by J. M. Quinn, of the Miner; W. A. Clark, A. J. Corman, M. J. Connell, 8. Marks, John Cannon and W. B. Forbls, of the, Butte Helena-for-the-Capital club; President Hamilton, of the Young Men's club. and Jas. Thompson, brother of W. B. Thompson, of Helena. Hun dreds of others assisted In the good work, but those named were most prominently before the public. A. J. Davidson and A. J. Steele, of Helena. r,,presented this city at Butte during the latter part of the campaign, and did goood work. B.ut it must not be Inferred because the illegal voters were shut out that there was no corruption in Itutte on election day. It is estimated that the Anaconda people bought outright alto. gether from 1.,00 to 3,1000 votems In that city on that day. The writer Ilelieves that 1.000 in nearer the mark, becausem the wholesanle purchasing did not begin until the afterntlon. It was the coln mon report oil the streets that the en tire polilee force of Butte was under the Ana.onda Influence, and that while the An aciondla people could oplenly corrupt voters. it would he a very tunafr' thilln for a Helena advocate to do tihe miine thing.

Beyond the north end of the parade, across a small gulch, which will be spanned by a large stone arch bridge, and under the protection of a small butte, are the bakery, quartermaster and commissary storehouses, fuel build ing, scale houses, stable, wagon sheds and shop buildings. At this point the government railroad connects with the t and extends to the northeastern rner of the reservation, where it meets the main line of the Northern Pa ciflc. This railroad was put In for the acommodation of the large supplies needed at the post, as Well as for the transportation of troops with their equipments. The city electric street railway will also be extended from the Broadwater to the post, and a small waiting station constructed at the near est point of the post settlement. In looking at the work being accom plished, one is struck by the steady and sure way the government aonomplishes its end as being comltred with ths MAKINC TOWARD PEACE.

ChINs aS Last Admits That She Wasee To tIlly UWprepared for War-Oar Trleat Iavohkd. Washington, Nov. 10.-As a result of negotiations now pending It is confl den.tly believed the United States will very soon be asked to media4e be. tween Japan alid China with a l1w to permanent peace on a basis sasafac. r tory to both countries. It can be stated positively that the United States has declined to join with European powers in any arbitrary intervention to force a settlement. But while unwilling to act In an arbitrary manner, either In I dlvidually or jointly with European na tions, the representatives of the par ties to the war have been given to un derstand that the good ofilles of this government would be gladly exercised to secure peace In case such Is the ex pressed wish. Naturally Japan insists that China shall take the Initiative itn nily negotlalious Iooking to the resto ration of peace, bilt that she is entirely willing to accedel to any reasonuble propositions n not doubted. From the beginnitng of hostilities thie C'hllcinee haive beten anxious to have lite I'llted Staten arbitrate thei dlffctren.ncs Ilbtween theinsel vs anlll the Japanese, which le'd to the war, but of course lihre could hIe no arbtitrtatton ex'ept I upoin request of abthl pllarties, and that was lacking. Iut aiftit'er the ibattles of Kitl Lien c'hang, onl Oct. 2.' last. when thei ('hinesel sulffllered theitr severe idt fl t, they i'eralt'e thoroughlly alarmedi lnd convilced that seolllthing must ho done' to terminate l l(11 i ' War.

The sewer system, with its 13,22Z feet of pipe, flush tanks, manholes and grease traps, Is perfect in every re spect. It connects with the buildings and extends northeasterly, and emptles Into Seven-Mile creek. The water sys tem extends from the city main at the Broadwater and furnishes water to the fire hydrants and all domestic services. There has been 14,218 feet of water pipe laid. Water for Irrigation purposes will be taken from the springs in the hills on the reservation. The railroad now in use is 6,922 feet In length and is constructed the same as any other line of railway. All the workmanship is the best of their sev eral kinds and the same can be said In to coerce either party to the war, and for this very reason we were an Inde pendent intermediary in bringing about peace. Both China and Japan were as sured that we were free from any of the suspicions of a desire to secure ac cessions of territay in Asia which hung over the great European powers, and their confidence in our firmness and im partiality was strikingly manifested by the selection of the United States by both nations to care for their subject* in the other's territories. The United States is at present placed in a position which she would naturally be looked to by both China and Japan to serve as arbitrator in case of a dlf. culty in arranging terms of peace, and it is therefore very improbable that we will forfeit this position by yielding now to China's request to intervene. "Arbl trate we may, but intervene we can not," is the manner in which the situa tion is summarized in official circles here. China has at last reluctantly, but very fully admitted that she found her self wholly unprepared for war. Japan on the other hand, smilingly accepts this acknowledgment of her prowess and waits a detailed proposition as to how much China will concede as a basis of peace. It remains to be seen whether Japan will demand too much or China yield too little, but the inclination of both powers is so strongly towards get ting together that it is believed that peace will be effected on the basis of Corea's independence and a cash In demnity for Japan's war expenditure. If. however, Japan urges her demand to the extent of a cession of part of China's territory, the prospect is China will not humble her pride to this extent. but will continue to prosecute the war as best she c'an, relying on the bitter winter now at hand to give her a tem porary respite and defens". U'ndetr the circumstance present ne gotlations do not in.volve foreign inllr vention. but mutual arrangement be tween China and Japan. to which for elgn powers will give their moral sup port. it makes little difference what thie United States or other powers may i1,, as long as China and Japan colime to gether, although both powers seem to be anxioiu to have the co-operation of this c.ountry and others in the negotla tions.

(Copyright. 1894, by Associated Press.) Iterlin, Nov. 10.-Now that the das sling effect made by Emperor Will ltam's lightning change solution of the ministerial crisis is clearing away and the people are taking a clearer view of the situation in all its bearings, two distinct feelings are becoming mani fest--nme of uneasiness among poll tlclans generally respecting the stabil Ity of the GJerman home policy. and the other a feeling of anxiety openly ex pressed by the mouthpiece of the lib eral party at the autocratic attitude which Emperor William assumed in settling the diMticulty. Ills action was 'ert(ailly not more arbitrary than upon the occasion of the downfall of Prince Iltismarck from power, but the German people hardly expected to witness a repittiton of that incident within so comanllratively short a period. The National Zeltung gives emphatlo expression to this misgiving, and 'te clarns that the solidity of the Prusslan cabinet must be re-established if con tfhlnce Is to be restored.
