The Helena Journal double leads an allged speeal dispatch which says that a flnd of lo0, has been forwarded bor eastern democrats to Marcus Daly, the same to be used "in debauch ing Montana" as the Herahl puts it. That newspaper adds that a second sum of $lO,t1U) is to follow the first in stallment. We have no doubt that this alleged dispatch was made up. In all its par tieulars. within the borders of this ter ritory. That it is an unqualified lie is perfectly well known in the ofite of the Helena Joe, rnwl. Iemocrats have not been asking the help of outsiders in this campaign. lte*public(.ans have been in that sort of business, however, and part of the imrorted money goes toward keeping the liel eus Joeurru l alive. Other sums are held in reserve to be used as a corruption fund on election day. Money and men have been furnished to the republicans from the East. Witness the presence in the territory of Congreman Reed, an arch enemy of aBser as he is notoriously--a man whom republican newspapers of the West have roundly condemned because do his hostility to our silver interests. Yet he is turned loose on the territory to hrse hs generalities on protection o to advocate tariff notions which he m t surely recall as soon as he miundgm again among New England sof congress, if he hopes to be duseta speaker.

This city witnessed, yesterday, the un folding of an interesting part of the plot by which republicans, under asumed forms of law devised for their own use, propose to disfranchise every itlen they ean reach who will not pledge himself to support the republi can ticket. The story of the attempt at wholesale disranchimet is told elsewhere in this morning's NTA KDA R. The exploit is no surprise. Days ago, republicans in this county heard it whispered that republicans would achieve by cunning what they might not rasaly hope to accomplish in a fair fight at the polls The enemy need not have waited till the eleventh hour, for it has never been in the plans of Deer Lodge democrats to place any obstalet in the way of citlaens who, un der the higher law which long estab Itshed precedent furnishes, have a right to go to the polls and vote. The challenges filed yesterday might have come days ago; but there was method in the delay. It is notorious that, for more than a week, hired mln lons of the republlean anagers have been busy among the registered voters of Anaconda and Carroll, ascertaining the political preferences of those who are now exposed to challenge. It be came clear that the majority of these men proposed to vote the democratic ticket, and, forthwith, the understrap pers were ordered to blacklist the lot- - a few republicans with many demo crats, lest the plotters should expose themselves to a summary accounting with the people of this city. It mar be that reublicans can care. this county by resort to the cowardly devises of political chicanery we doubt it. It may be that forms of law may be so grossly perverted as to de prive citizens of their votes, turning the ballot box into a machine for over throwing the popular will- -we question it. It is possible that in this territory of Montana the free expression of the popular will may be smoth ered under legal intricacies devised to that end -we do not believe it. This newspaper has its own opinion on the questions raised by yesterday's challenges. It does not now presume to pass Judgment on the technicalities involved in the assault on five hundred voters, but it will ask no questions of constituted republican authority, knowing that to be corrupt and partisan beyond the hope of candid judgment. If, however, it shall be found that the men assailed in yesterday's challenges are supported by such authority as the nTANDAUD has hastened to seek, we give aotiee that these men will votethat their votes will be counted and that the aggregate thereof will be taken into ac count, vote for vote, man for man, when the final reckoning comes and the political fate of the new state of Montana is decided. The melt Included in yesterday's challenges are nit chani(es and laborers. They will not he crowded out; they cannot be counted out: and those who attempt that sort of busi ness, attempt it at their peril. Along with a lively coantest over the election of state officers, Washilngtonl territory is carrying a tight over the io cation of the capital for the new state. The first popular election will not make the selectioin permanent, but it will doubtless give the lucky town a great advantage in the IMnal fight. ()lympia is numaking a tuggle to hold the honor for herself. while the west side residents in Washington apparently regard North Yakima with favor. DONE TO MISLEAD. The republican press of this territory will not succeed in its attempt to blind the public in reference to the relations of democrats to the secret ballot. )em ocrats openly opposed the unfair regis try law framed by republicans. Its partisan operation has been exposed in a dosen instances. But for energetic effort put forth in the early days of the the canvass, hundreds of democrats in the territory would have been disfran chlsed. Between the registry law and the se eret ballot, there is a clear distinction which Av.ry cititen notes and which is clear enough to every republican editor in the territory--a distinction, how ever, which these editors purposely ob scure in fruitless attempt to lead the public astray. The address of prominent demo crats which the republicans wilfully misinterpret, was printed in the TrA*DARD until the time for registra Uinse lr i. it vas lrw w I wrInmwe. It Is woith ueuM.

No comment need be added to bow the Intentional fabebood uttered by the republaica pres in all its comment. touching the relation of the democratic perty to the aecrt ballot. That Is an entirely different proposition. The Butte Inter Mo. ute a shows that the pending canvas is labor's fight. True enough, labor has a 1ig fight on hand. Not longer ago than yesterday a single republican, who was for years an ofece hokler, challenged the vote of four hundred laborers who live in Anaconda and who des.re to become citisens this year, especally for the reason that the new constitution bars them for years hence it they fall to come in now. Yesterday's challenges include a dosen natlonalities, but they hit, every time, the men who proposed to vote the democratic ticket. The Helena Jouemal wants to know what "constructive lmeitions" the dem ocrastrave taken. "('onstructive" is good. , e cacuaot guess exactly what a political "constructive" position may be, but meanwhile we can say that the democrats are constructing a very large funeral for the repablican party, serv lees to be held on Tuesday of next week. The Helena Jourmal will be there without further invitation, since every fellow has to go to his own funeral, cards or no cards. Williams Wilkie Collins, whose death was announced yesterday, was bhon in Engltnd in iMSL. e was the son of William Collins, a distrngulshed arist and member of the Royal Academy. Wilkie war educated for the bar, but early in life he manifested a taste for literature, and finally devoted his entire energies to novel writing. As a master of aystery his reputation will stand for ever. Ina eoaseiving and maturing a plot no novelist has ever lived who couldkl su pass hin. He could so hide a secret in a wrappage of cirsumstances that before it could he discovered it was necessary to unroll the whole tissue. In the delineation of character be was not tobe nmentioned in the ane brteath with Thackeray. He had none of the sense of humor and pathos which characterised Dickens. He lacked the noral purpose and lurid inten sity of 'harles Reade, and in pure de scripton he was a pgmny to that king of describers. William Black. Yet none of hem n ould construct a story which wosuld so fascinate the vulgar mind and at the sane time e bmatle the trained intellect. Collins' hbet known works are "Anton.a," "Basil." "Hkle and Seek." "After Drrk," "The Dead Secret," "Votlunan in W'hite," "No NaUe," "Amnndalet." "The Moon ntone," "Manl avid Waif.," "New MagMda leIn." "Law alndl the Lduy," "Heart and S4cience." ()f these "The Maa.nOst1ae," whickh apperared in 186, (s perhaps the most famous, written as it is in Collins' hbst vein. PERSONAL PARAGRAPHS.
