BothSides Have Grown^Desperate.
Bytheir votes this fall tho people of^Montana uro going to practically decide^tlir capital question. It U not at all |^ro!v^able that any town will tret a majority of^all tlio vote* cast anil thus nettle tin: mat^^ter absolutely, but Hoiemuu will secure^enough vutcs to give Iter a plaec in thu^final content .mil that is er|tiivaleut to vic^^tory in ISM. Tiii* time Bozemuu has to^make lier own light, and she ' ^ making it^in a straight-forward, manly way that I*^gMtMMJ friends for her in every county^iii the state. Hut when the linal contest^toraw Bozomali will not huvo to light the^buttle single handed anil alor.c. She will^then hay o the. richest anil most populous^c ities in Montana to back her w ith their^influence and with their votes. Helena^will most likely ho her competitor, ami^though Helena should dr ain her pockets^of Mm la -1 nickel wrung MM her sister^cities during the last ^ years, and though^she should bankrupt her cracker factory^in her efforts to raise money w nh which to^buy votes, the will iioi be in it with Boze-^nutn. That is a foregone conclusion, and^every' citizen recognizes the fuel. save |^cr-^baps a few who am temporarily residing^in tho ^ racket City.
Thedesperate strain to which Helena is 1^driven may Im inferred from the ^pluck |^and energy^ inter* law o| MM liauser, I^wlueli appealed hi the ttmtpmtmt seme^days ago. When she has nothing to build^tipon except a characteristic which has^operated to the injury of every Montana^community outside of Lewis and Clark^^county, her ease is indeed a hopeless one.^It is very like a horse thief approaching a^man from whom ho had stolen a horse^and demanding admiration and piaisc for^the udroit manner in which ho hud got lop^away with his property!
Blaine'sForces Slowly Driving tbe^Enemy Before Them.
ANotable Victory Scored by Blaine^In the Election of Fassett^For Temporary^Chairman.
Bozemnn'shopes of obtaining the capi*^ta! are based upon the many advantages^which she possesses over her rival candi^^dates, advantages w hich are so apparent^that it seems almost an insult to intelli^^gence to do more than merely call atten^^tion to them. Among these advantages^may lie mentioned her geographical cen-^trality of location, her nearness to^the center of population, her acces^^sibility to all the people of^the state, her inexhaustible stores^of mineral and agricultural wealth, the^ca|Kicity of the -.mounding country to^support a denser population than any^oihir portion of Montana, the beauty of^her site, the healthfuluess of hor climate^and the admirable stato of her society. In^any one of these necessary qualifications^for the permanent seat of government^Ho. email can safely challenge comparison^with any Montana city. That comparison^will bo drawn many times between now^and the eighth day of November next,^mid every timo it is intelligently and^truthfully drawn will add to liozeman'f^strength.
Butperhaps one of the strongest argil-^moots In favor of locating the eapital at^liozeinau is found 111 her admirable^adaptation as u place of resi^^dence. The capital cities of nations and^of states are almost universally the^rerrigmzeil centers .f good sti i.-tv in ihe^countries VMM they are situated. Tin.^capital city, theiel'oie. should In- one p-is-^aeasttig those qualifications and attrac^^tions which will induce people of the Itet-^ter class to make it their permanent place^of abode. In this respci t Boieiuan is^without a peer among Montana cities.^Her broad streets, solidly built up with^substantial business blot ks : her clcp.tnt^residences, embowered in muguilh-cut^groves of collouwoods and poplars; her^I cuiiful lavMis ami pattern s of rare and^costly plants and Rowers, have long sincu^given her a world-wide reputation as a^city ol preeminent beaut^ and loveliness.^Her admirable educational facilities leave^nothing to wish for in this particular.^Her seven coinmodiou. rhiuvhcs. pre^^sided ovei I.\ pastor*- of recognized ability,^furnish ample accommodations for thosu^who arc religiously inclined, and the^MM that they arc unnsiiallv well at.ended^speaks favorably lor the moral status ol^the community.

Minmapolis. June The sun MM^down w ithout any decisive gain by either^faelion. tin- Harrison managers holding^the delegates well in hand, while the |^BUM MM is re-onfoivod by outsiile in- i^ftHMh No dotiln the president has the^advantage of the instructions which hind^the majority whose choice would be the^statesman from Maine.
TheHarrison managers are displaying^good gcneialship in keeping theii MM!^pledged to vote for the president on the^lust hal.'ot. Thev count on the nomina^^tion on ihe first ballot. Chautieey Ml'^pew. tien. Horace Porter, Governor Mc-^liuilcy ami Si-natot Sherman have been^the chief factor in keeping the majority^of tho delegates in support of the presi^^dent.
TheHlaiite people, while showing no^signs of ui.m oiiiugcmcut.are seeking to^defeat the major ity vole on the lir.it bal^^lot, the.r policy iM'ing to bring favorite^sons mlo die Held and divide the vote.^They give out th.it the decision of the^Michigan delegation to prcsc lit AIger is^favorable in tlit it plan.
Severaldelegates argue that the light^between Harrison and Ulaine will rciidei^the selection of a third man a necessity.^The number advising the selection of u^candidate not involved in the factional^contest is increasing. ^Give us McKin-^ley -,^ said a Colorado man. ^The w inning^ticket,^ said another, ^would lie Sherman^and tiresham.^ Another combination is^Sherman and Whitelaw Keid. A proposi-^tion has been made to New York to drop^Rlaitic and Harrison and select Sherman.^Husk or ^ ulloin.
AClose (ontest.
Atest of strength on side issues is sure^to bo injurious to Harrison, therefore the^threat of the Harrison men toappcal from^the decision ol the national committee^would he a dangerous proceeding. The^contest between Harrison and Blaine is^growing so close as to make the possthil^ity rest on tbe decision of the committee^contests.
Thecommittee is now in session and its
actionis not cheering to Mm Harrison^men. who were counting on an almost^solid delegation from tin- Southern states.^In many instances they are unable to hold^their ground.
TheHarrison men are angry at the way^the contests have been decided, and^tlu-eateti 1o make a fight on Ihe national^committee all along the line. The Ala^^bama contest w ill be earned before- the^e\ocutive committee.
Tho^reform republican^ party opposed^to the regular delegations from South^Carolina are not recognized and will ap^^peal to the full committee. They say^they are Ulaine men and urge recognition^on the giouinl that they are the ^while^man's and r**s|ieclabl - colored man's^party.^ Members of southern dele^^gations Mud themselves imisinani^and appear to appreciate the fact^that the llaripou men are making^strong elloits to hold ihein in line, while^the anti-Harrison forces ate bringing all^means al their command to break into^the South, and apparently with cITccl.^Tied Douglass is actively at work in llni-^rison's can e. lie lias denounced Hlaine^on aecouui of his op|s^siiton to the force^bill in '^a. i, -neral l.oitgstreet has w ritten^to members of ihe Georgia delegation,^urging ihein to vote for Hlaine.
