PRIO IVY Gans & ...Klein TO-DAY, the American Board of Foreign Missions, in New York, assigns the savers of savage souls to their various fields of work during 1895. President Richard S. Storrs, D.D., is at the head of the work, and 557 American missionaries are dueed by to-day's action. Dr. Storrs' associates il the Board are Drs. N. G. Clark, C. H. Daniels, and E W. W. ,Blatoh. ford. HOW TO LEAD lEN... To believe that Ulsters are cheaper than doctor bills has been bothering us. We give it up. Common sense ought to do the job. AN ULSTER Costs $15 or $20o. We have them at $7, $zo, $12 and $25. For the toiling man, the busi ness man, the clerk, in fact any man, be he busy or not, there are some splendid Sack Suits I ere for you. The materials are strong, and genteel in effect -nice, unobtrusive garments. They are row sold for $15, $18 and $2o. We could get more fo them, but the tariff bill has run prices down. Come in be fore they go up. These are not the only priced Suits we hlve. You may want one for -$7.50 or $1o We don't advertise them, but you can find them in our stock. Don't make a regular business of them. It is the better goods we want to acquaint you with- we want to make a customer of you and keep you as a customer. Supply yourself with one of our Ulsters and Suits. Gans & ... Klein THE POPS PROCLAIM. With a Loud Noise They Asursert That Cir. oumstanoes Justify Their Party Organization. CERTAIN EVENTS CALLED STARTLING. Also Subversive of the Liberties of the Pee. pie and Destructive of Business and Social Security. Ht. Louls. Dec. 29.-The work of the conference of the national committee of the people's party with leading mem bers of tile rank and file came to a frultion to-night, when that committee submitted to the conference as a result of the discussions of the conference an addresn to the party and to the Ipeopl,. Its presentation was met by the gath ering with a shout that rang through the hall and the Indorsement of th.* conference was gi\en with vigorous viva voce vote. The addrens follown "The national commltee of the peo pie's party sends greeting to its con stituency throughout the United States. The rapid increase of our vote In every part of the union and the startling events of the past two years,. vividly justify both the existence of, and the necessity for the people's party. The contention of the party that one of the great needs of this country has been and is an enlarged volume of circulat Ing medium, is now practically con ceded by all parties and by the gov ernment. "The gold power and banking Inter ests are insisting through the president and his secretary that the enlarged is sue of our money supply shall be given exclusively into the hands of the banks; that silver shall be excluded, all treas ury notes retired, and gold alone shall be legal tender, thus making the mon etary question an issue which must be met at once. "Within the present year corpora tions, grown arrogant because of vast possessions of wealth and the exercise of unconstitutional powers, have made war upon the people and induced fed eral courts to exercise in their inter est unusual and arbitrary powers, in duced the invasion of the states by federal troops without requests of either executives of such states or legis latures thereof, and are at this time, through a recreant administration and truculent congress, attempting to clothe railroad corporations, by means of a pooling bill, with power to further and more systemsutcally rob and plun der the people; and having already de prived the people of access to the sl! ver mines of the country as an inde pendent source of money supply, are now, In the interest of banking oli garchy, endeavoring to depriveteIm oa the right to have their government, in the exercise of its constitutional power, issue the money of the nation and con trol its volume. "In the opinion of your committee these events are startling, subversive of the liberties of the citizens and de structive of business and social secur ity; and, adhering to the Omaha plat form in all its integrity, your com. mittee Insists upon the restoration of the coinage of gold and silver as it ex Isted prior to 11K73-at the ratio of 14 to I-without regard to the action of any other nation, and that all palper money shall be issued by the general govern ment without the intervention of banks of issue, the same to be full legal ten der. We also declare our implacable hostility to the ful ther Issuance of In terest bearing bonds. We denounce the pooling bill as a move toward complet ing the monopoly of transportation, and demand that, instead, congress proceed to bring the railroads under govern ment ownership. 'The power given congress oy me constitution, 'To provide for the call ing forth of the militia to execute the laws of the union, to suppress insurrec tilons, to repeal invalon.,' does not war rant the government Ln making use of the standing army in aiding monopoliles in the oppreglsion of the public and their employes. .'hen free men unsheath the sword it should be ,to std4ke for lib erty. not for despotism, nor 'to uphold privileged monopolies in oppression of the poor. "We ask people to forget all past poll tlcal differences and unite with us In thel. -ommon purpose to rescue the gov ernment from the control of monopo lists and concentrated wealth, to limit their powers of perpetuation by curtail ing their privileges, and to secure the rights of free speech. free press and trial by Jury--ull ruleh, regulations and Judicial dicta in derrogation of either of which are arbitrary, unconstitutional and not to be tolested by free people. "We recommend the immediate or ganisation of an educatlonal campaign ty national, state and local commit t, C's." In a.ldltlon to this address, the na tional ·nmmittee adopted the following rt'eluton: h "In view of the fact that the state of Alnhtamtnn an It her southern :tates are wtithlut reptublicn formln of govern m,,nt. eeIstf.* ' of the rules of polittial ollgare'lihy. which Is prpetit11ntd by mon Pr't'tou fr;Itids at the hallot lox. the Im n 'rntiv.' nress.ty of a freet hallot and " hone.t coutnt Is a constitutilonal right, and we d."mand 'that t he given, nnel move t"hat the ,''irmani of the na tlnnal PX,'ecutivIe committteo aplpoint a nlmmIttee of three io, submlt ,evideng to the pr'"a of the country and to sub stalintilt.' thIs nlarmtng and revoluttion nary .snnditlIon. hatt they may he awalken ed i., the threlaltenings lof the perill criiu.ld by this existing autocratic nn archy in the soiuth."

THE CANE DARBIEN& ' Gladstone's Strong Denutnlate of the 8 OutraIgs in Arwnia,. n London, Dec. 29.-Mr. Gladstone to day, speaklhg to a deputation of the English Armenian committee at Ha- tl warden, said: "It is not indifference F which has thus far led me to do noth- d ing in regard to affairs reported from 0 Armenia. Rumors have gone abroad n of horrible outrages in Armenia and Il the Impulse of every man has been to give vent to a burst of strong feeling. Ii But I am convinced that in a grave b case of this kind, every nation is most fi appropriately represented by its gov- a e'ament, and it is their duty not to asaume that all allegations are true, h but to wait for the result of the exami- g nation, and see whether they are based II upon ascertained facts. g The intelligence which has reached me tends toward a conclusion, how- k ever, which I hope may not be verified, h and that is that the outrages, sins and tl abominations of 1876 in Bulgaria have been repeated in Armenia. If this is o correct. It is time one general shout of execration, directed against such deeds C of wickedness, should rise from out- a raged humanity, and force itself to the v ears of the sultan and make him senl- p ble, if anything could make him sensi ble. of the madness of his course. b "If reports are established. it will b more than ever stand before the world a that there is no lesson, however se- ti vere, that could teach certain people tl the necessity of obserr ing, to some de- ii gree, the laws of decency, humanity and * Justice. If the allegations are true, It a will stand as if written in letters of Iron on the rocks of the world, that a government which could countenance and cover the perpetration of these out rages, is a disgrace to Mahommed whom the Turks profess to follow: a disgrace to civilization at large, and a 8 curse to mankind. "This is strong language and ought , to be used when facts are known. However, we keep our Judgments in suspense until the truth Is known. But ' as the evidence grows and the case h darkens, my hopes have dwindled, antd as long as I have voice I hope it will I be raised upon such occasions in be- n half of humanity." a SPRECKLES ilA.

The, t,.ucIher and puplils of the public school lre.rved Chrlitmia. eve to give an entertainment in the "orm of a ca'tI tatat and Christmas tree. Asnlted by local talent, the pupils gave a really first cl'as entertainment. The tree wau sul,plied with elegant and some valu able presents fur old and young. The weather on Christmas day wan ,.lear and cold with enough snow on the ground to make it white. The hotels and restaurants gave excellent dinners, and some families gave invitation dlu nlers. In the evening preparations be gan for the magnificent ball to be given In the eourt house by Chevaller lodge, No. 12,. K. of P. About 9 p. m. dancing begln, none but maskers be Ing allowed on the floor until after midnight. The masks were giood, very few dancers being recognisable. Rep resentatives were there from Judea of a thousand years ago and the Indian l'egan agency of the present day. There were about eighty couples pres ent and they appeared reluctant to de part even at 4 a. m. It was one of the best balls ever given in Choteau. Chevalier lodge, No. 12, K. of P., is contemplating the erection of a hos pital in Choteau. It is a much needed institution. Owing to the opposition of the two stage lines running in here, one from Steel and one from Collins. a traveler may now get a through ticket to Great Falls via Collins for $2.50. There have been several deals in real estate during the last month, among the largest being the purchase by W. R. Ralston from Jacob bchmidt of a resi dence and four lots for a consideratlo of $1,400. There is not a single vacant house or cabin in the town. Rent is rather high, two or three room cab ins bringing as high as 810 a month. The Masons will give a public instal lation in their hall to-night, and the A. O. U. W. have also an installation, but it will be private. The many friends of the Masonic order will as suredly have a plMasant time. The new proptMtors of the Choteau house, R. A. Allen & Co., are giving good satisfaction to the traveling pub lic and the regular boarders. They are genial, accommodating hosts. There is rumor of a new meat mar ket and provision store being started in the Blair block soon. This will make three meat markets in town. A new real estate ofilce has been opened in the Jackson block. An abstract office is being started in Choteau for Teton county. This is an absolute necessity and will be very con venient for residents and prospective purchasers of property in the county. Residents continue to arrive on the bench east of town, owned and watered by Burton & Allen. Immediately steps will be taken to survey a townslte close to the residence of William Burton. On this ground it is supposed many of the immigrants will put up houses and a school house will be erected for the accommodation of the children. FIREMAN ASSAULTED. Knooked Sleneles on the Track and Left to Freeze. Special correspondence. Great Fals, Dec. 29.-Joe English, fire man on the Neihart branch of the Great Northern, was found early yesterday morning lying on the track near Net hart. almost dead.

Joyce Searles, youngest daughter of J. W. Searles, died at the Columbus hospital after an illness of several weeks. She was well known and her death touches many hearts to sympathy with the parents. Arrangements have been made with the owners of the Tod building by which Its flagstaff will be used for displaying the weather signals, daily dispatches being now reclved from Washington. The firemen's annual ball at the Park Thursday night was well attended and the boys report it as most satis factory from a financial standpoint. Some Close Guessing.
