He'll Have to Go.
T last the government at Wash
ington had a practical incident
in Spanish affairs to deal with.
De Lo.ie is a.genulne sensation. He is
ttined in the diplomatle pervice; he
~ deemed to bt a bright marl , ir his
f ; it Is agreed That as 'liah'trrst
s ative in this countr7y3t1, Eht' d
himself to be clever; he has had a try
ing experience; he was well thought of.
Bat all De Lome's training and diplo
mnacy and statecraft and experience go
Sep nothing. He.wpptea.lettern.4n&.a
ieg as he lives lie' will be sorry ;'h
wrote it. He sent it to a friend-one of
Splin's most Illustrious men--and he
will always be sorry he sent it. Not
because he regrets what he wrote, but
because the man to whom it was ad
dressed was unpardonably careless with
the letter and let it get away.
Frlends of Cuba stole this letter. They
admit that it was stolen; they even offer
to prove the fact of the stealing. They
wanted lust such a proof of the hypo
crisy of the Spanish minister-clearly
they have De Lome upon the hip. He
wrote to his friend Canalejas in scurril
ots cnomment about the president of the
United States whom he describes as a
"low politician" who "caters to the rab
ble." That isn't very good dlplomacy;
particularly as things are just now be
tween the United States and Spain.
This was a private letter and posses
sion of it was obtained by methods not
within what they call the comity of nia
tions or the regulations of a village po
lice force. People not versed in the
niceties of the diplomatic sphere wouldi
naturally be led to wonder how the gov
erqment at Washington could properly
enter into a knowledge of the facts and
take action. Speculation, however, on
that score is made superfluous since, ac
cording to this morning's news, the gov
ernment has acted and has laid the facts
before Minister Woodford.
A few days ago, in the excitement of
ene of the many useless Cuban debates,
a member of congress declared that
Spain couldn't insult the McKinley ad
mlnatration, because the administration
wil stand any affront Spain pleases to
offer. Evidently that broad and hasty
assertion is not destined to find illustra
tion in De Lome's case. He is going to
learn that he can't call our president
names with impunity: doubtless he will
have to pack his grip and go. And.
oibtlevt , the war will go on and on
and the McKinley administration will
wait and wait the same as ever, and
nothing will come of it except that the
swell set in the clubs of two continents
will have a topic for several days
of conversation.
Murphy Not in it.
T HAT man in the New York legis
lature who created a sensation
ten days ago by introducing a
retolution demanding the resignation of
Sentor Murphy, laid the wide founda
tions for a lot of trouble, and Senator
Murphy himself isn't btaiened. with
.i part of it.
The legislature at Albany has a
republican majority. Mr. Murphy is a
democrat. He might naturally do
things, therefore, displeasing to tihc
majority in the legislature and not care
a ig for its criticisms. But iSenator
Murphy had always voted with the
gidbupgs, up to the time when the
Teller resolution was disposed it.
When Mr. Murphy voted with the sil
verlits, his action was more embarrass
ing to some of the New York democrats
tban it could possibly be to the repub
Slleans. Still, these gold democrats
didn't exactly feel like pitching into
Mr. Murphy. So they consulted and on
their behalf Perry Belmont wrote a
litter to some of the leading democrats
-I the legislature, telling them to get
back at the republicans by showing
that in its original form, as the Mat
thews resolution, the Teller r.eslutihn
got the vote of Mr. McKinley.
That was threshing old etraw, ibut
the democrats went at it, and the con
sequence i tRI: get-tlimes more disus
--on has been started up than tone
wosald have supposed was possible. The
newspapers have been drawn into the
debate. The democratic side is making
out a bad siiver record for the presi
dent; the republican side is saying that
silver was only just a little below par
1 when the Matthews resolution was up
Sand that therefore the president never
was really for repudiation. They are
having as warm a time about it as if
the whole matter was of some account.
But. meanwhile. Senator Murphy. the
cause of the row, has been lost sight of.
When the Teller resolution reached a
vote in the senate, Senator Murphy had
a question of policy to decide. He and
some of his New York friends are liv
ing with the next national democratic
convention in view. They hope to he
influential there. They know that Mr.
i Murphy's vote against the essence of
the Chicago platform of 1896 would
compel them to account for themselves
in the national convention of 1900. It
was good policy to vote that way, as
almost all of the democrats in senate
and house voted. That's the size of It.
In an lnterview.
I F it is to be taken for granted that
Marcus Daly is a judge of bad flimes,
or that he knows good times when
he sees them, the interview with him
printed on the third page of this morn
ing's Standard will pass as added testi
mony that the East is not yet advanced
even to a speaking acquaintance with
Mr. Daly seems to make his point
good by adding the assertion that it
prosper!ty had been enthroned, as
promised, there wouldn't be any silver
question to-day, whereas, in the busi
ness circles of New York he finds that
to be the living Issue, forcing itself on
men's attention. entering Into all their
calculations, prompting them to with
hold the investment of their gold. and
prodding them on toward a great
national fight which, while they do not
confess it, they are afraid of.
Mr. Daly met other men while he was
east. They are the liaders in the Aliver
crusade. He refers this morning to
their zeal and their loyalty, as well as
to their anxiety or even their fears.
These men in Washington are the rec
ognised sponsors for the cause of free
coinage. Some of them are democrats,
some are silver republicans, some are
populists, some are sliverites-they
represent many distinct political organ
izations, but they are working faith
fully toward a common purpose-that is
the making of common cause In the
largest possible number of states, dur
ing the politics of the next two years,
to the end that there may he. unity of
action for silver in the great national
contest of the year 1900.
The testimony brought back to Mon
tana is that these men are courageous
enough to step across partisan bound
ary lines in their planning and in the
work of carrying out what is planned
for the campaigning of many states
where, with union of actitm, silver may
win preliminary battles this year. On
that score Mr. I)aly's interview wili
interest the friends of silver in Mon
tana who, looking beyond the boundau
les of our ow\vn state, are ready to. get
loyally into line with the national lead
ers and who stand ready and willing to
aid in all efforts that will promote the
cause in states which, if they are won,
must be hard fought.
At Its lleight.
LASKA'S mining furore has its
center in that part of the United
States whlere you tind thae most
money and the least knowledge of min
ing. The Klondike fever is raging in
New York. Millions of money are' going
into Alaskan ventures, eminently rich
men are taking stock in undertakings
which certainly have in them all the
look of South Sea dreams.
It is soberly asserted on authority
that must be accepted as excellent that
within the next five or six months fromn
$30.000.000 to $50,000,000 will be invested
by capitalists who are In New York 0ii'
who are associated with New York in
terests in the commercial development
of Alaska. It is., of course, impossible
to get at anything like an accurate or
even an approximately correct calcu
lation of the amount of capital which
will be thus invested. The figures just
given are only a conservative guess
made by those who have perhaps the
best Information upon the plans which
are now being rapidly completed for the
organization of various railway, steam
ship, trading and other incidental enter
prises all aiming to secure some part of
the great commerce and business which
"are certain to be developed at once,
and to be maintained throughout the
In instances names are given. The
Philadelphia Press has a valued New
York correspondent who writes that
one of the most important of the enter
I.rises is that with which John W.
Mackay. Mr. Leltter, of Chicago. DL. O.
Mills and the Rothschilds are associated
and of which 1. .Mattland Kersey is to
be the executive head. The capital
which this syndicate has nominally
subscribed is comparatively a small
sum. It is reported to be a million
dollars, but that is only at small part of
the money which will probably be iin
vested by this syndicale in its various
operations. It may undertake the
management of several distinct corpor
ations. It will undoubtedly establish a
steamship line extending from Seattle
to one of the Alaskan parts. It is also
the purpose of the syndicate to build a
railway which w ill make the quickest
conne ction bet(ween tldewater andtl the
Y;ukon district. but "exactly where that
railway wilt be coanstructed is a matter
iof some doubt, probably doubtful even
to this syndhiate itself."
This is only otn'of th" Alaskalan ,eter
prises. Another  onapany in whii.i Mr.

headquarters are in New York and will
be sent as soon as possible to Seattle.
the expectation being that all of them
will be in service before June 1.
Of a truth, it is a stampede with all
possible modern improvements; one in
which millions for railway construction
cut less figure than the price of a pack
mule used to in the days of Rocky
Mountain new discoveries. And, as yet,
Alaska has practically nothing to show
for it or to warrant it.
Grable and Quialan.
Y the showing of the latest figures
given out in New York, Francis
Grable managed to get into the
famously conservative Chemical bank
of New York to the tune of $395,000. It
is not concluded that this amount is a
total loss to the bank: on the contrary,
the claim is that the salvage in settle
ment of Grable's affairs will be a good
percentage of the money loaned to him.
That, at the outset, was the talk given
out in behalf of the bank. More re
cently the estimates on the value of
the Grable assets have been revised
and reduced and the shrinkage ex
plains itself.
For instance, the capital stock of one
concern floated by Grable was $1,000,000.
About $300.000 of this stock had been
issued to Grable himself in payment for
8,000 acres of land 'including 2.300 town
lots, the property lying in and around
Edgemont." That is a town of about
900 Inhabitants in South Dakota. on the
line of the Burlington road and at the
point where its branch road for the
Black Hills country leaves the main

sions of the Edgemont sort.
In behalf of Cashier Quinlan it is
said that he was really worn out foi'
lack of reasonable vacations (luring his
many years of service: That Quinlan
was sadly in need of a vacation or of
some other vitalizing form of recrea
tion, there is no question. Ile lost his
job, and unquestionably he demon
strated his unfitness for the office of
cashier. Yet this poor man is too
severely denounced by some of his
critics. He made bad loans to be sure,
but isn't that pardonable? He was the
cashier of a big bank. There is in Chi
cago a big bank which some time ago
charged off $1,000,000 in loans that
proved to be bad. What became of the
president of that bank? Why. about a
year ago they put him at the head of
t,ýle treasury department of the iUnited
State:s. _-_-_
The Fight Still On.
I T is not an easy matter for old news
paper readers to get accustomed to
the new order of things in the New
York journalistic field, wherein repub
lihan polities is involved. The New
York Sun's championship of the Pla.tt
machine is something one does not
promptly get use te. On the other
hand, it's odd to see the old Tribune
doing what it can-and that isn't much
-to break up the republican machine.
In a sense the Tribune has become
the organ of the Low independents, al
though many of these have no liking
for the Tribune or its editor Mr. Reid.
The Tribune urges these independents
to make themselves the regulars, by
hook or crook, and on no account to
have any dealings with the Platt peo
ple. And, indeed, the independents are
likely to act on this advice, although
most of them will say they are not
taking it from the Tribune. The prob
ability is strengthening constantly that
the Low people will ignore the Platt
organization to the end. They are do
ing what they can to get allies
throughout rural New York, in antici
pIation of the coming summer's impor
tant state convention; they claim that
they can control it.
As for Mr. Reid's Tribune. it isn't
likely to get much out of the republi
can row whichever way it goes. White
law Reid is a man whom New York
republicanism never liked. With Platt
especially Reid has several old scores
to settle. Reid was second on the
presidential ticket with Harrison, in
1892. Platt conveniently let the ticket
lose the state of New York. Then,
when McKinley was elected, Reid was
resolved to get the appointment to the
court of St. James. President McKin
ley. it wat said, was aereeable, but
Platt simply wouldn't have it that
way. These personal matters enter
into New York's republican quarrel; it
must be said that Platt is getting the
heavy end of the punishing just now.

ways, presided in the afternoon. On
assuming the chair Mr. Choate spoke
on "State Aid for Building Wagon
Roads in Minnesota."
"The Streets of Chicago" was the
subject taken up by Frank W. Moul
ton of that city. He told of the poor
condition of the thoroughfares there,
where 800,000 wheelmen use the streets,
and detailed the efforts that were be

Cycle company and one or two small
merchandise companies being burned to
the ground. Firemen were unable to get
the fire under control before 9 this morn

than $20,000O. It is impossible at this time
to ascertain the exact amount of insur

Lavelle Habeas Corpus Proceedings Taken
Under Advisement.
The application for a writ of habeas
corpus in the case of the state vs. Wil
liam Lavelle and Mrs. William Lavelle,
who were bound over to the district
court on Tuesday, came up for hearing
in the district court last evening. The
Lavelles were charged with the crime
of obtaining money under false pre
tenses and Judge Donoghue heard
their preliminary examination. Dur
ing the preliminary examination cer
tain technical points of law were raised
which the lower court found it difficult
to satisfactorily determine, and he
bound the defendants over in the sum
of $500 each.
The question that was raised has
been thoroughly made clear in the
Standard and needs no repetition. Ac
cording to the contention of Mr. Duffy.
attorney for the defense, the codifiers
of the Montana laws in copying a sec
tion from the California laws made an
omission. The hiatus, said Mr. Duffy,
nullifies the section under which the
offenders were arrested and charged.
Mr. Duffy in his argument last even
ing also attacked the sufmclency of the
complaint. He cited various authori
ties and gave his definition of the
word token.
Mr. Trippet for the state opposed
Mr. Duffy's stand in a brief speech and
said that the fraud was so palpable
that no doubt existed of the intention
of the defendants. He answered tt:'
arguments of the attorney for tb·, la
relles in detail and at the conclusion if
the arguments the court took the mat
ter under advisement.

Football will undoubtedly be a success
in Anaconda this year, juding from the
number of enthusiasts that wea present
at the meeting last evening to discuss the
plans for the coming reason. Those pres
ent were Messrs. Fitspatrick. Mealy, Mc
Millan, DWork, Dearight, P. Sgtivan, M.
Bullivan, McHugh, Harrington, Artiktt,
La Fontise, Danlels, It de B. Smith.
Keefe, Crowley and O'Mears.
,Mr. Searight was unanimously selected
to act as temporary chairman and Mr.
McHugh as secretary. In an address to
the team Mr. McMillan stated the object
of the meeting. He said this was the
preliminary step toward the organisation
of a permanent football team and an ath
letic assoilation, which would be known
as the Anaconda Athletic association. In
order to secure games with outslde teams
Anaconda must have an amateur associa
tion, which must be composed of at least
a membership of 60. To effect such an or
ganisation all those interested in amateur
sports are requested to join in and help
the boys along. The baseball team and bi
cycle racing teams will be asked to pull
off their events under the colors of the
proposed athletic association, and the out
look for some good sport at the athletic
field this summer is very encouraging.
To have a successful team it means
much hard and conscientious work, and
while Anaconda will perhaps not have
as good an individual team as Butte, she
expects to hold her own with the smoke
eaters by having better team work. If
games are arranged with Butte for next
spring some very interesting contests
may be expected.
Mr. McMillan stated that if he was re
instated they would schedule three games
with Butte for the coming season. He had
received a proposition from Manager
D'Gay Stivers stating that Butte would
like to play three games with the Ana
conda team for the championship of the
state. The first game will undoubtedly be
played at Butte on Decoration day, the
second game at Anaconda on Miners'
union day and the third will come off at
Butte on the Sunday prior to. or the fore
noon of the Fourth of July. The forenoon
was suggested so that it would not inter
fere with the races, which will be held in
the afternoon.
Manager Stivere writes that the Uni
versity of Nebraska football team, which
won the championship of the Middle
West last year, defeating such teams as
the Universities of Iowa. Minnesota,
Northwestern, Missouri and Kansas,
would like a game in Butte some time In
June, Just after the university term
closes and while they are yet in training.
The Butte team proposes to pay two.
thirds of t'. ,.xpenses of the collegians
for one ganie a4 Butte if Anaconda will
stand the remaining one-third for one
game in this city. This proposition will
probably be accepted by the local man

A committee of three, composed of Phil
Daniels, R. de B. Smith and Rod T. Wil
liams, was appointed at last night's i
meeting to take charge of the perfor
mance and look after the Interests of the i
team in the play.
George McMilla' was unan'mously re
elected manager 'or the season of 1898. I
He stated to the meeting that the outlook
for a good team in Anaconda is very en
couraging. He was glad to see the interest
displayed by the players, and said he
hoped each one would take it upon him
self to help build up the team and make
Il a succesa. He stated that before they
could ask the pleople of Anaconda for any
support it would be necessary to show
that they were in earnest. The election of
a captain ant other officers was deferred
until a later date.
A Parliamentary Ruling.
To the Editor of the Standard:
Please answer the following question.
according to parliamentary ruling.
through the columns of the Standard:
Can a favorable ballot be reconsidered
at any future meeting? To make the
matter plainer, a ballot being taken the
result of which proved favorable to the
candidate, a week or so later it hap
pened that his character is not what
was expected. A reconsideration of the
ballot is called for, which is denied on
the ground that it is unconstitutional.
Is it? By answering the above you will
confer a great favor on several sub
Anaconda, Feb. 6, 1898.
If a candidate receives the requisite
number of votes to elect, the ballot
cannot be reconsidered at a subsequent
meeting unless the successful candidate
refuses or neglects to take the office.
The only way to dispossess him of the
office is by impeachment proceedings.

A Grateful Mother Writes this Letter
Tells all about Her Troubles when
Baby Broke out with Scrofula Sores.
"At the age of two months, my baby
began to have sores break outon hisright
cheek. We used all the external ap
plications that we could think or hear of,
to no avail. The sores spread all over one
side of his face. We consulted a physi
lan and tried his medicine, and in a weak
the sore was gone. But to my surprise a
two weeks more another scrofulous look
ing sore appeared on baby's arm. It
grew worse and worse, and when he was
three months old, I began giving him
Hood's Sarsaparills. I also took Hood's
Saresparilis, and before the frst bottle
was finished, the sores were welland have
never returned. He is now fouryears old,
but he has never had any sign of thos
scrofulous sores saine he was cured by
Hood's barsaparilla, for which I feel very
grateful. My boy owes his good health
and smooth, fair skin to this great med
icine." Mas. S. S. WaoTva, Farming

A miner in Scranton, Penn.. who has resided there all his life, and worked
in the coal mines ever since he was a boy of tifteen, and consequently is pretty
well known to hundreds. says that the foul atmosphere he breathed for so
many years in the mines, the gases, the damp and the cramped position in which
he had to work. caused his entire system to run down. " My 3stomachauffered
moat," said he. " I was induced to make trial of Ripans Tasullew. and in a
month I was very much benefited. I made a practice of carrying a few of the
magic Tabules or Tablets in my pocket regularly, so as to be able to swallow one
on the first sign of approaching trouble; but now. and fcr some time past, I
am. and have been, a perfectly well man. Many of my fellow miners are
familiar with my case, and not a few of them have learned to follow my example
sad always keep two or three of the Tabtmles in an accessible pocket. and to take
ome at the first sign of an internal disturbance or anything like a hadacichea~"
