TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER ?8, 1880. EDITORIAL NOTER. Visitors this season to .the battle fiehl o Waterloo are as numerous as ever. They are mostly English and Americans. Frenchmen come very seldom. A Waterloo veteran who was seventeen years old on the day of the battle, serves as guide to strangers. A seheme of African exploration is under consideration at Portugal. It is proposed that two expeditions shall start simultane ously from the Portugese possessions on the east and west coasts of Africa, and, after founding scientific ami commercial stations along their route, meet in the Interior. It is probable that, roughly speaking, the line of the Zambese would be generally followed, but it is not very clear how the money for so gigantic an enterprise is to be provided. As usual the dispatches to-day are conflict ing in regard to the Maine election. To those who are familiar with the management of the Press Association it is reasonably clear that Plaisted has a decisive majority, tor by reference to our telegrams it will be seen that the contest is regarded as " close." If there was the barest possibility of a republican victory, however small, the dispatches would be full of Maine election news, and the Davis majority would never be conceded until the last, moment to be anything less than 5,000. The statement of the Associated Press agent w that the result is doubtful may be safely re 1 garded as an acknowledgment that Plaisted will be the next governor of the Pine Tree state. One ward of New York city has a flau cock club with a membership ot over three hundred, and composed exclusively of repub licans, or at least of men who always voted the republican ticket previous to the nomina ■ lion of Hancock. The club owes its forma j. tion to a casual remark made one day to the ; gentleman who is now its president, Dr. G. H. Mitchell. Happening to state his inton ation to vote for Hancock, the democratic tdioniinee, lie was infoimed that the city ward n which lie lived contained many more re publicans of the same way of thinking, and hat he should do something towards their irgauizalion. The suggestion was acted ;iiipon and the result is tlie "Republican Han " ock-English club." •'Southern claims" and "rebel debt" are the nies by which the stalwart organs would ter fy tlie people of the north into a further sup Ëtjpmt of tlie party of misrule ami sectionalism. iil'liis is wliat the Courier-Journal, the repre if nta,ive paper of the south, has to say on the ■gjubject of southern claims: The south wants nothing but exemption I'oin the thralldom of the vanquished. Tear ■out us the badge of disgrace, which the re ublicatis insist upon placing upon us all— igfj-ipe out the stains with which they seek Jj.jfiskonor us—and we, on our part, do solemn agree to relinquish the very name of hope, any losses sustained by, or in, the war ; of ■Kroperty real or personal, niggers, cotton, cot 'j't* ,ax i houses, lands, cattle, fences, pigs, BEgbullrv and skillets. We want nothing ex Syidpt an equal show ; and, if ever we do, let Wf-iere be a solid north. The editor of the Benton Record has come grief, Finding his editorial labors sotne I be to tact the by his the to and the w out the his jg|, sotne JfJhat onerous, and possessing only a guile jss .bachelor's acquaintance witii the sex, f.'e Jîi ecord mar. rashly employed a lady odi jKr to ligliten (!) his labors.

The only sympathy he meets ! lh is fl ' om bis married friends, who take lesion to drop into the sanctum about a Whzen times a day each and console him by 14 .marking, "Yer might have knowed better, It'i'if'.r fool. Why didn't yer ask us for some ad (r,;fi-'e on that pint beforetakin' on yerself such jt'ul chances? Let the present 'spun'nee JMjach yer some good horse sense for the fu J»e." bp-ate eastern papers fully describe the im BaT ission created throughout the east by the f ceipt of the election new s fiom Maine, and jfwft find this impression to be far more pro ^Mind, and the result to be accepted as much ire decisive than indicated by the press dis ches. It was more especially in the gov Ki'iment departments at Washington, among * clerks who have been assessed to the verge Starvation in the interests of the republi parly, that the news from the l'ine Tree [be was accepted as the knelt sounding that r's overthrow. Previous to the election contest in Maine was looked forward to he department clerks as a reliable iudica of their continuance in office ; but no Ng& ner was the c [»change was to contest decided than a mark vas to be observed. Gloom suc |ded hopefulness, and clerks who had pre fusly been enthusiastic republicans were Vi going about eagerly assuring democrais 'ttliey had never done anything against party. 'ully to appreciate tlie importance of tilt ublican oveithrow iu Maine we must re uber the course taken in tlie state cani n by Weaver, tlie greenback presidential didate. Weaver lias shown liimself to be an of o'erweening vanity and of very r judgment. Iu Maine bis parly bad e a fusion with the democrats, but this on be repudiated so far as lie was person concerned by refusing to participate witii democrats in joint discussion.

The republicans are trying to : the force of the crushing blow iu Maine 'escribing tlieir defeat as a greenback vie lt was tlie victory of tlie party of tlie tistied, or those who are united in tlieir ition to further republican rule, and iu November will be found united nst Garfield and Arthur. T0K NATIONAL PARK. o are who the the is of so To by Tbe visit last month of Carl Schurz and other distinguished geutlemen to the Yellow stone national park may reasonably be ex pected to result in the enactment of measures by congress looking to the improvement and preservation of that marvellous region. That it is sadly in need of improvement and pres ervation will not be disputed, for it is evident, to all who have visited (lie w onderland, that it is yet an untamed, howling wilderness which the economical appropriations of con gress and the palsied efforts of an antedilu vian superintendent have been altogether in I sufficient to redeem. It is now seven years since the attention of the government was successfully directed to the beauties and cu riosities of the park, and since it was with drawn from the public domain. If, during this seven years, the park lias been improved in any way, such improvement is not observ able to the tourist wtio thinks to take a pleas ure jaunt through that section of country, but who finds, when too late, that lie lias to put up with every imaginable hardship of a mountain life. Several y ears after the park was set apart, five thousand dollars was ap propriated to make roads and to rendent otherwise attractive and safefor tour ists to visit. The next, year con gress doubled the amount, not with out serious misgivings of its extravagance, and I his year the appropriation reached the munificent sum ot fifteen thousand dollars. Thirty thousand dollars to improve a tract of land fifty-five by sixty-five miles in area ! But Geyserdoin not only suffered from nig gardly appropi iations. Through the persona! influence of Senator Christianryan old fel low named Norris was appointed superin tendent of the park at an annual salary of $2.500. In the early days of the republic Col. Noiris may have been a very energetic man and well fitted to hold a posit on requir ing the exercise of sound judgment and phys ical and mental activity. But the old gentle man has passed his age of usefulness, and while nothing has been ur'ed against his personal integrity it is evident that lie should be replaced by some man who is competent to perforin the duties of his position. No efforts are being made to preserve in tact the natural curiosities of the region. In the vicinity of the geysers and other springs rare treasures have been formed by deposi tions from the waters. These are ruthlessly carried of}' by vandals who find it. an easy matter to get into the superintendent's graces by listening with seeming interest to some of his fabricated adventures w ith bears and man eaters. The secretary of the interior during his ic eent visit thoroughly informed himself as lo the details of Norris' management, ascer tained that wagon-loads of valuable speci mens are being yearly called away, that the game is not protected, that the roads arc exe crable, that no provisions have been made to guide the tourist from one point of inteiest to a> other and that the highest mountains,the most picturesque valleys, the prettiest falls and tlie grandest geysers w ere all named after the pre-Adamite superintendent. Mr. Schurz w as very naturally disgusted when he found out Ihe incapacity of Col. Norris to fill the position vvitli credit either to himself or to the government, and very freely expiessed his intention of making a new appointment at the earliest opportunity. At the same time, however, he confessed himself botli surprised and delighted with the magnificence of the country, and stated his intention of exerting himself "to the utmost to secure an appropriation of $100,000 from the next con gress to render the Yellowstone National Park a resort for thousands of our country men who are yearly spending their money in foreign lands where the natural attractions of scenery are too inferior for comparison witii those of our own." With the removal of Norris,the appointment ot a man belonging to the present generation and the expenditure of a liberal amount of money in the way of improvements, the Park is certain to become in the near future the only popular resort for American tourists. ed at vote why ble, aud to the So or! by less own with that due j tlie I able j lost ! as I for THE LESSON OF THE MAINE ELEC TION. The intelligence that a split lias occurred in the Greenback party of Maine may cause uneasiness to sucli of our readers as come hastily to conclusions, without carefully ex amining the grounds upon which those con clusions are based. But there is no ground for alarm. The late election in Maine lias done its work; it lias shown that those who sustain republican policy and favor a further extension of republican rule are vastly sut numbered by the discontented, the dissatis fied, and it is in that lesson that tlie moral effect of the recent election is conveyed. It would be otherwise if it were necessary for tlie democrats to carry Maine in tlie Novem ber election. If the seven electoral votes of Maine were required to elect Hancock, the democrats would fall into a panic of alarm at the prospect of a split among tlieir Maine allies, a split which contains in it tlie possi I i bility of the election, by a plurality vote, of the republican electors; but fortunately no such necessity exists. Even supposing that the greenback split proves to be formidableas well as permanent, something utterly im j probable, by tlie way, wliat results? Why 1 simply that Maine drifts back to tlie position ; she lias always been assigned. Previous to tlie election of this month Maine was never classed among the doubtful states. The dem j ocrats, confident as they were of victory, nevt r counted on her assistance; and now that it lias been promised, even if it should be withdrawn the democrats will be in no respect weakened in the strength upon which they had originally relied and counted on as sufficien' to place their candidate in tlie White But we do not believe, even admit ting ail this, that there is a prospect of Maine turning back and undoing the good work so nobly begun. Tlie situation, as tersely stated in Murch's speech, resolves itself to the al ternative—"Either elect seven Garfield elec tors, or else three Hancock and four Weaver electors." and fully understanding the choice before them the voters of Maine will have no d (lieulty in making it, and making it intelli gent !y. The fall election of Maine has done its work, work which can not now be undone. Its great lesson is the truth pronounced in no uncertain tones that I lie people of the most northern of the northern stales have grown tired of republican misrule, and have mani fested iu a mam or not o he mistaken their desire to fioe themselves from Its baneful in fluence. It teaches us that even the fellow citizens of Blaine, the apostle of sectional hate, have grown tired of the parly whose face is turned to the rear, and whoso eyes are fixed upon the past as it devotes its entire ef forts to reviving and cultivating the memories of sectional strife, memories which cannot ho too speedily forgotten. As for the result ot the election, we are now in position to judge. Witii a beautiful regularity the dispatches have steadily low ered t lie republican claims until wliat was at first a handsome majority for Davis, the re publican candidate for govermn, is changed into a fair plurality for Plaisted, tlie fusionist. If this operation he extended to reaeii a ma jority for Plaisted then all will be plain sail ing and lie will be installed governor, but otherwise Davis will serve as chief executive officer of Maine. The constitutional amend ment establishing as lawful the election of governor by a plurality vote has been accept ed by a large majority, as we are informed. Had Davis received the plurality vote that, amendment would have been interpreted by republican courts as "retroactive'' in its na ture, to the extent of applying to the election at which it was adopted as it surely should. But with the plurality vote cast in favor of Plaisted it is safe to say that the amendment will he declared operative from the official canvass of the votes cast in its favor, and not from the election in which the votes were given. This ruling will throw the election of governor into the republican house of repre sentatives, which will be equivalent to the election of Davis. try at To the WASHINGTON. News Noies From the National Capital. 'Hie bers But if few spoil tlie him, too. Noies From the National Capital. Froin no part of the country do more con tradictoro accounts of political affairs come than from Virginia, and as many believe that democratic success is impossible without, the vote of that state, extraordinary interest is beginning to he felt, by tlie political managers here in tlie local complications. One reason why tlie reports from Virginia are so unrelia ble, I may say for ftie benefit of northern readers, is to be found in the fact that that in different portions of tlie stale each of the democratic factions has great strength. For instance, in one section the teadjuslers have control of nearly all the conservative votes, aud think they will have with them many negroes. In sucli sections the leadjusiers are opposed to any compromise or combination with tlie funders, while the latter profess a willingness to enter into any fair arrangement to unite the party on a single electoral ticket. Somewhere else tlie situation is greatly re versed, and the funders are irreconcilable and the readjustee, like Barkis, are "willing." So I suppose mere than half tlie prominent conservatives of 'he state are anxious for a settlement of the difficulties, hut unfortun ately for the prospt't of harmony, the min or! iy have control of ti.e machine, and backed by an almost unanimous home support, aie defiant. I do not see any prospect ol united conservative action in this state this fall un less tlie people shall take matters into their own hands. Tlie reports from Washington as to tlie as sessments on officeholder« must be taken with grains of allowance. There is no doubt that some indiscreet officials have used un due means lo secure contributions, but bv tlie most thorough inquiry I have not been able to find any one ease in which a man lias lost his place by refusal to pay over. Neither, as a rule, have women employes been asked for contributions, but here again have over zealous officials, in a few instances, gone be yond tlieir instructions, and have done far more harm to their party than can be ovei come by tlie paltry amounts collected. Ollieial figures just issued here show iu tins country an aggregate of gold and silver coin of about $570,000,000, and $700,000,000 of paper, making an aggregate of $1,270,000,000, or $25.50 for each man woman and child in tlie country. The attention of the two congressional committees having headquarters here has been called to the systematic violation of the laws on the subject of "franking." Not only is matter which is not "part of congressional record,' sent oft' "franked" by tlie toil, but liandstainps are used lo produce tlie signa ture of the franking congressman. Tlie evil is confined to no party. Knox. Washington, I). 0., Sept. Id, 1880. Tlie Indiana and Ohio elections come 0,1 Get. 12, and liie president t ' 011 0,1 ^ ov- -, 20 days later.

Chicago, Sept. 22.—The Times says edito rially on yesterday's work in the Maine greenback convention: "Out of 405 mem bers only 72 could he found to follow Solon Chase and the advice of General Weaver. But these 72 can make as much mischief as if they were half of the convention, for a few votes for tlieir straight out ticket will spoil the small majority which the c mbined opposition appears to have. Solon Chase is tlie most influential man in the greenback parlai n Maine. "He is also a pig headed old soft-money fanatic, and if his 72 followers should desert him, lie would organize liimself into a con vention and nominate a straight-out electoral ticket, and it would gel a good many votes, too. Chase was sustained by Ceil. Weaver and. tlie unanimous voice of all the greenback ers in tlie country in demanding tlie nomina tion of a full electoral ticket. Just wliat tlie sentiment of greenbaekers in general is as to the split, now it lias taken place, cannot now he staled, of course, but it will probably favor Chase." Not Doubtful Slate* is ing ter idie as the its only rent fully has corps not in so there Deer ces take work of This rest a a of in Against the solid democracy oi the state of New York all republican efforts are impo tent. The election of 1870 demonstrated be yond question where a large majority of tlie voters of tlie state stood. We see daily in our New York exchanges many reports of accessions o the Hancock column of men who supported Hayes in 1870, hut there is a complete absence of reports of democratic de fections. New York is safe for the demo cratic ticket. It cannot he regarded as in the category of doubtful states. Equally sale witii New York, and giving a proportionately larger majority, is New Jer sey. The republican claim that, that state is doubtful is simply ridiculous. It was carried by McClellan ior president in 1804, and again by Seymour in 1868, although bleach of these states it was about, a foregone conclusion that tlie country would be carried by tlie republi cans. It elected a democratic governor in 1874 and again in 1877, and in 14170, on tlie presidential vote, gave a democratic majority ot 12,445, equivalent to 05,000 in a state the size of Ohio, or to 55,000 in tlie state of New York. Witii the feeling this year pervading the New Jersey democracy hardly a doubt can be entertained that they will surpass all previous majorities, while republican success in tlie state is utterly out of the question. Connecticut also, although closer than either New York or New Jersey, does not this year present an inviting prospect to tlie republicans. The democratic presidential ticket is very popular in tlie state, and James E. English, the democratic candidate for gov ernor, handsomely carried the state when tlie republican party was in tlie height of its pow er— betöre its many corruptions had alienat ed thousands of men who were its staunchest supporters. The democracy of Connecticut make no unfounded claim when they say that they will give not less than 5,000 majori ty for the presidential and stale tickets.— De'roit Free Press.

Our county town is enjoying its full share of tlie prosperity with which Montana has re cently been blessed. The visitor from Butte will miss the vast street crowds to whose ap pearance we have grown so familiar in this city ; but their absence at. Deer Lodge is ex plained by tlie wide difference that exists be tween the industries of that town and those of onryoungininingcity. At Deer Lodge the local industries furnish employment to busy work ers during tlie day-time only; and this in connection with the further fact that it has industrious citizens who are contin ually at work will explain the "deserted streets" concerning which tlie Butte man has always something to say. In this camp, however, work in tlie mines and iu tlie mills is prosecuted quite as vigorously during tlie night as in the day-time, tlie night-shift giv ing employment to fully as many men as the day-shift. Owing to this unceasing charac ter of tlie work going on about Butte a very large proportion, nearly one-half, of our la boring men are unemployed and apparently idie during the afternoon of eacli day. The Butte man, then, who describes Deer Lodge as "dead" because lie sees no great crowds on the streets, and tlie Deer Lodge man who describes Butte as a place populated princi pally by rounders and idlers, because lie finds large ciowds of unemployed men on our streets every day—both are wrong. Deer Lodge looks quiet and its streets deserted be cause its industrious citizens are all busily at work. Butte lias the appearance of being peopled in tlie main vvitli idlers because half its working population, tlie best miners and hardest workers in tlie country, are at, work only at niglit, passing tlie afternoons in appa rent idleness strolling about the streets. In proportion to its population Deer Lodge is fully as lively as Butte, the great superficial difference between the two towns being fully explained by the circumstance that one town has a very large and constantly employed corps of niglit, workers, while the other lias not even a single establishment of any kind in which a night-shift is employed. But Deer Lodge is prosperous, even more so than Butte. Here, when help is needed, I there is not much trouble in finding unein- | ployed men even in our busiest season, butin j Deer Lodge one of tlie greatest incoi'venien- j ces experienced by tlie citizens is the impos- j sibility of finding an unemployed hand to take charge, at short notice, of any piece of work to be done. Another very healthy sign of prosperity is tlie great scarcity of dwelling houses, or apartments to he had under rent. This want of house room has made itself so distinctly felt of late that after a much longer rest than there was any occasion for, building lias revived, and several dwelling houses are cither already under way, or else will soon he in process of construction. Those who have been absent from tlie city for a year or more will be pleasantly surprised at the substan tial and permanent nature of tlie improve ments made during that time. These consist principally of two line brick business houses, built by tlie go-ahead firm of E. L. Bonner & Co.; an elegant brick dwelling house be longing to Mr. Bonner, senior member of tlie above firm; and last, but not least, the insti tution which Butte patronizes so liberally, to wit, the new county jail, also of brick. Tlie last is a well built and handsome edifice, but for all tliat its location is a matter of regret to many Deer Lodgers. It stands i. '«tut bouse square, and in that situation no matter wliat its architeclui al merit may be, the prison cannot be otherwise than a blot and defor mity to the square, which, had tlie jail been located elsewhere, would have served admir ably the purposes of a city park, albeit of rattier small size. Deer Lodgers, proverbial for tlieir Hospitality, are well pleased vvitli tlieir town, and exert themselves to tlie ut most iu tlie endeavor to make tlie stranger who tarries within tlieir gates as well satis lied as they are themselves with Hie Garden City of Montana. Free from the feverish ex citements, as well as from the deadly depres sions, of a mining town, Deer Lodge lias be- ! J all i for* it an UO c„,.n I A , .. " . - I a ioie it an assuied future of steady, healthy I growth, and is decidedly a town which any home-seeker can tie to vvitli the utmost safety. BFTl'E AND PIPEIIOKE DIRECT ROAD.
