Hundred of Gueits at the Copper City^Company's Store.
Musicand Muslins and silk and^Millinery at the brilliant^Opening on Main^Street.
IfMain street in Annronda of 1S85^ct'Uld look uuon Main street In Ana-^oonta In 1S9.1, how surprised the ten-^y.xir-old street would be! It is a^chaMM from scattered attacks to sifb-^BtaimUU business blocks, from haatlly-^r ^:istrueted stares fit for a straggling^villagv to well-arranired business^houses, handsome. In front and finish,^nioi^ rn In tiulr appliance of electric^Us .'it and steam heat, complete In their^appointments and a surprise to the^visitor in the amount, the variety and^the richness of the stocks they carry.
Thisvery year the changes along^Main street have been remarkable.^Within the limits of ^he block on one^corner of which the Copper City Com^^mercial OOnpaay'l store stands the^nt-w bank bull Unit has been erected,^the Shields liuiidiuir. iho Tuohy build^^ing and the hands ^:in' block lately^completed for Mr. Kohrs. Within^three hundred feet of the Copper Oity^company's estaMafbmcnt. $125,000 has^gone Into fine n.-w business blocks^during the past nve months.
Tierorner n.-cupied by the famous^^Four C't^ was a brilliant central^point l.ist evenin*. In anticipation of^the grand opening, the stores of the^company had been brilliantly lighted^up. Kor a time those In waiting were^entertained with an open-air recital by^Wasterliln's band^by the way, how^surprised the An.iconda of ten years^ago would be were It to listen to Ana^^conda's baud ot tn-d.iv. Three full-^llore fronts make uu the Main street^entrances to nhe Copper City Coniimcr-^Clal oonipanv's establisnment^these^three run, in d.'pth. half w.iy through^the Moek. Ba k of their mammoth^plate-glaaa fronts the show windows^presented a glorious spectacle last^night; the norfh store mens clothing^^ nd furnishing cood* in laitent style^and most tast-ful patterns; the middle^^tore ths latest cr^atlon^ In dress^goods, mllllnerv and household ^na-^terlals: the south front an example of^nigh art In the display of the thlivifi^that a customer finds In a model gro^^cery house.
Whenthe wide doors were thrown^open last evening, soon after 7 o'clock,^troops, of visitors strolled down the^avenues along which In endKsa pro^^fusion the novel tins of the iea.^^in had^been arranged. Under the brilliant Il^^lumination the color eff^'ts were singu^^larly striking. ^Joe^ Walsh was elo^^quent with the latest the world han^witnessed in garments perfect 1n wyle^and tit. Casey .had made his depart^^ment a poem and he was proud of It.^Healy was showing ladles' shoes fit to^he worn at one of Kaiser Wllhelm'a^high functions. Mr. Church and his^assistants actually engaged the Inter^^est of the men in some of the .myster^^ies In dress goods, fabrics, dainty laces^and that sort of tMng.
Meanwhilethe members of ths band^took quarters in a large room dlre.oUy^ait the head of the main stair case.^This room, about TO by 40 feet, has^lately been added as a stock room.^Lured by the strains of melody, pa^^tient gentlemen who started out to be^the m*ek escoms of their wives^climbed to the wide-spreading second^floor, and. before the reception -was^over, entered with as much ^est Into^the admiration of corsets and wraips^and Infants' wardrobes as the moat^enthusiastic female In the great com^^pany of gu.-sts.
Mr.Canty had his carpet department^arranged In most attractive style for^last night s nrrand opening. Curtains^of every description, shades, mats,^screen's, and other things that are In^Mr Canty'a line were so dl.ip.wied^about the large carpet room as to make^It an UnpoftMt contribution to the ex^^hibit. S0U at hand, in attractive ar-^NiagMMat) the department of do#JU^and suit* was In ebarga ^f Mr. M iRas,^whose urbmo akttntJoM h'-lp to make^his department popular. The mill HI ry^department in the Copper City cstab-^Itohmeni Is In ch inrc of Misa Josei.hlne^Travis, who studied In New York for^six years un 1-r Madame Mautz.
Marvelsin headgear were shown List^night, many of them modeli of good^taste. An Immense countess hat at^^tracted attention.
Ithas a full red crown of velvet and^apllque. brown brim compb tiiy covered^with antique lace of large pattern. It^Is trimmed with black half [lumes set^around the crown; biight-colore.l crush^roses peep from beneath the brim. A^striking toque, from Madame lleitz-^ponya, I'aiis. wis shown last night. It^has a puffed rrown of new blue velvet,^with green silk braid ed^e, ornaments^of cut steel and rhlneatone, small black^feathers and, on the back, two large^tropical birds of dellcately-tlnted plum^^age. A beautiful hat was one of black^felt braid edged by small black feath^^ers curling fiom beneath. Part of the^brim next to the fa.-e is of green felt^braid and trimmed daintily with green^and black crushed roses. A duchess^bow covers the crown and trims the^back and the front of the hat.
Theladles reveled lest night In ths^display arranged by Madame Lewis,^who has charge of the dress-making^department. There were beautiful^goods In silks, satin, shaded uncut vel^^vets, satin de chlen, tinsel novelties, In^all colors, taffetas, duchess brocade,^and suitings In endless variety. Many^of the ladies were surprised last night,^on visiting the annex lately arranged^for the dress-making department.which^has been made complete In ill Its ap^^pointments.
Therewas a forest of goods In last^night's second floor display In waists^and cloaks, and furs and boys' cloth^^ing and ladies' wear, and yarns and^wraps, and all the articles that go to^complete the stock of the mammoth^establishment.
Manypeople of the practical turn ex^^pressed their admiration for the Copper^City company grocery department. In^connection with which Is a large Job^^bing department. Last evening Mr. P.^J. Hftinissy, Mr. H. J. Oiurch, Mr. K.^E. Moore and others assi-'ed the enter^^tainment of the i veiling'! guests.^These are the heads of departmen ^^,^under Mr. Hennessy, In the establish^^ment:
J.A. Canty, carpets.
D.It. McRae, cloaks.
MissJosephine TraV*. millinery.
MadamLewis, dressmaking.
J.It. Walsh, clothing.
OA.C Fierce, men's fuin.slung.
J.C. Healy, boots and shoes.
J.8. Casey, groceries.
H.J. Church, dry goods, Ac.
K.E. Moore, business office.
Fiftypeople are Included In the^working force at the Copper City Com^^mercial company's stores. One who^visits them Is astonished at the extent^and the variety of the stock; It would^be deemed pretentious In most cities^of fifty thousand people. The total of^^U*tn^ ss Is surprisingly large and the^rapid increase of trade, especially dur^^ing the past twelve months Is most^gratifying^the Copper City Commer^^cial company keeps pace with the^thrift and the rapid growth of the^Copper City Itself. The concern Is one^of the most prosperous In the North^^west, and It Is eminently a credit to the^city whose title It wears. It Is a solid,^well-managed and well-patronized^commercial establishment.

Nextthing to a man's breakfast In^point of his desires In the morning is^his morning paper^the Standard. The^disappointment therefore when It Is^stolen Is keen, and he seldom falls to^register a complaint at this office. Now^It has come to the knowledge of the^circulation department that the numer^^ous kicks received lately are not^caused by failure of the carriers to de^^liver the paper, but by the stealing of^the paper by persons who make It a^systematic business. Efforts to detect^the pilferers have so far failed, but It^Is the Intention to capture an offender^and he will be punished to the full ex^^tent of the law. Any information of^such thleying will be gladly received^at the Standard office, and the culprit^will be speedily taught the truth of^tho adage
'TIs a sin to steal a pin,^To steal a paper, 'tis a greater.

Theboard of county commissioners^will hold a special meeting at Deer^Lodge next Monday and among other^business Intend to consider the advisa^^bility of discontinuing the use of the^roads running through Carroll. This^will be good news to the people of An^^aconda who enjoy the beautiful drive^to Warm Springs, Lost Creek canyon^and Peer Lodge valley generally, as It^Is becoming dangerous of late for the^best of drivers to run the gauntlet of^locomotives, trolleys and the like that^pass over or near the wagon road Just^this side of Carroll. There Is plenty of^room south of Carroll for a good road,^no grading to speak of will be re^^quired, the, view of the smelters would^be even better than It Is at present^from the old road approaching Carroll^and all possible danger to life and limb^avoided.

Themental woes of Mr. and Mrs. Joe^Tobokich, a Slavonian family living In^the Red Row on Park avenue, were^the subject of an hour's session In^Judge Fitzgerald's OOUTt yesterday af^^ternoon. Theoretically it was a divorce^case, practically Jot was on trial for^being drunk and disorderly. Neither^of them could talk English to a satis^^factory extent, but each could pour^fort'h a torrent of the language of the^Slavs, and when given the privilege^kept it up until stopped by the court.^Officer Niok Bosanlch was Interpret^^er for both. The cause of the trouble^was the old and prolific disturber of^the peace of families^the question of^who should carry the pocket-book. Mrs.^Tobokich said Chat Joe was accustomed^to beat and bruise her; that he knocked^her down and would have killed her If^the children had not been there Tues^^day evening. The cause of hit wrath^was t'hat she did not have supper ready^when he came from work, and she had^not been able to get the supper because^Joe carried away in his pocket the^grocer's and butcher's pass book. She^^aid she could not get things to eat^without the books, and Joe would not^let her 'have them.
Thenshe rattled away a long story^of how she had supported the family^and two boarders by taking In washing,^had clothed the children and paid the^rent, and wound It up by a flood of^tears. g^While she was sopping her eyes Joe^told his side of the case, which did not^differ much from his wife. Except that
Ihe did not want her to keep boarders,^they always went away without pay^^ing their b ^ard and he had not paid the
Irent because the boarders had two^roams, which he and his family had no
;use for, and as his wife insisted on
Ikeeping b iarders, she had to pay th.'^freight. He admitted using his fists on^her because no sup|^er was ready.
Mrs.Joe said she would not live with^him any more, and Joe retorted that^be did not want to live with her unless^she was a better woman and would^quit keplng boarders.
TheJudge told the hubby that If he^wanted to have her he could do so,^but lie would hav^ to take care of the^children. Joe said he would take them^away. Then Mrs. Joe's tears began to^rain and the court told him he oould^not do that, but w.^uld have to pay his^wife enough to keep the little ones.^His wife wanted $^o, and Joe said he^would go to Deer Lodge and get a di-^vlrce.
ottleerBosanldh told him tm better^leave his wife If they could not agree,^but Joe declared he would not get a^new boarding house at all: he would^stay right there and get a divorce. It^took some time to explain the fact to^him that this was impossible, and it^then began to look as though the pair^would make It up.
JudgeFitxgerald imopsed a fine of^110 and costs and told the defendant^that If he was arrested again on such a^charge the penalty would be ^0 days In^Deer Lodge Jail. Joe and Mrs. Joe then^left the court room to rustle the^amount of the fine, and Mrs. Tobokich^will hereafter have but one boarder.
