The l'icnie on Mount Helena.
A party of ladies and gentlemen, number
ing some 15 or 20, made the ascent of Mount
IleLna on Saturday, and on the summit of
that stupendous hill had a picnic—a genuine
frolic. Some of the excursionists made the
ascent on foot, and others on horseback. We
know of one young lady, at least, who made
the round trip on foot , and, as she avers, too,
without inconvenience or unpleasant results,
which prompts us to say that any young lady
who can ascend and descend Mount Helena
without a murmur is capable of accomplish
ing almost any feat of pedestrianism. At 5
p. m. the picnicers partook of a lunch which
is represented to have been prepared in a
style commensurate with the jolly occasion,
and capable of satiating the keen appetites
that were engendered by ascending this pre
cipitous mount—2,200 feet above the city.
Two kegs of Nick Kessler's XXX lager beer
and a dozen bottles of Heidsiek s best served
as "pacifiers." After lunch—later in the
evening—'when night had drawn her sable cur-
tain down'—there were bonfires and illumina-
tions, and a brilliant display of pyrotechnics,
which were generally observed in Helena and
greatly admired. About eight o'clock the
excursionists took up their line of march for
home, closing the gaities of the day by a
torchlight procession down the mountain.
They arrived home about 9 o'clock, a little
the worse for wear, but highl\ r elated over
the novel trip to the summit of Mount Hel-
Kev. (Jnrk Wrlglit.
The services at the Broadway M. £. Church
yesterday were conducted by the new pastor,
Rev. Clark Wright, who recently arrived
from Omaha. The Reverend gentlemai
livered two very able and eloquent sermons
which were listened to by the largest
and most intelligent audience that ever as-
sembled in the church. Rev. Wright has a
voice as deep and melodious as Edwin Booth
or Henry Ward Beecher, and his gesticula-
tion is equally graceful and appropriate.
Aside from this we believe him to be an ear-
nest, sincere Christian, and he will accom-
plish much good in the new field of labor to
w hich he has been called. Certainly, he made
a very favorable impression, and his popu-
larity will increase as he is better known.
We have many hardened sinners in our midst
who might experience a change of heart if
they would attend regularly, as they certain-
ly ought, the house of worship on Broadway,
and listen to the eloquent appeals of Rev.

A special to the Chicago Inter-Ocean, dated

mistaken in the name and at once apologized.

In the raffle for the carriages and harness
which came off on Saturday evening, T. II.
Clark and A. H. Beattie were the lucky ones.
Mr. Clark threw the highest, 48, and won

was thrown 40; and he got second choice;
and somebody threw 15 for Larry Kendall,

The most popular game in Helena just
now is.chess, the old club having been reor
ganized and numbers among its members
some of the most skillful players in the Ter
ritory. The headquarters at present are at
the office of M. A. Meyendorff, on Jackson
street, where the players assemble every af
ternoon. Among the most expert of these
are Major Maginnis, Judge Wade, M. A.
Meyendorff, S. T. Hauser, R. S. Hale, Blaine
Walker and J udge W ilkinson. Molly wonski's
opening is generally preferred, and for de
fense, Philador's instructions are usually
adopted. We understand that it is the inten
tion of the President of the Club to issue a
challenge to play a friendly game with Vir
ginia City, sometime during the fall or win
ter. If the contest comes off we will wager
a few "greens" that the Helena Club wins,
although Virginia has some brilliant players,
Judge Blake probably being the best.

The Corinne Mail of the 13th inst., says:
"Four car loads of freight came in for Mon

that has been forwarded from Corinne this
season is beyond the expectation of any one
connected with the business. It has been al
most equal to the early days when Montana
contained a much larger population, and this
was the only route for shipping supplies. A
large portion of the freight now is machinery
and other articles intended for the permanent
improvement of the Territory.

Mr. C. C. Lindley, of McClellan gulch,

staking claims. Mr. John Murphy, he says,
has been for the past month developing his
mines at the head of the gulch, which look
well, the last rock taken out showing free
gold, and a well-defined crevice at a consid
erable depth from the surface. These recent
discoveries give old McClellan a fresh im

What a Protestant Minister has to Say
of ©nr Bridge Street Neighbor.
To the Editor of the Herald :
I have for some time noticed that the In
dependent has or seems to have a wonderful
antipathy to protestant ministers. The editor
often refers to them, but never in commend
ing terms, nor with any charity ; but most
generally he has something to say of and
about them that, to many of his more thought
ful and reflecting supporters, is very distaste
ful—always on the low, slang, Brick Pom
eroj r order. I cannot see what the Pilgrim
editor has in view. Has he taken the beam
out of his own eye ? or is it ripening for the
just judgments of God? "Had he better
never been born ? or now that he has an ex
istence had he better not have a mill stone
hanged about his neck and be drowned in
the sea?" Matt. 18 ch—6 v. Look again. In
the Daily Independent of the lath inst., the
editor says that "it would be a good thing for
the Government to colonize Moody and
Sankey, Sergeant Bates and Weston, the
walker, among the Sioux. These noted indi
viduals would then get up all the excitement
they want with little opportunity of bother
ing the rest of humanity.". I would ask, in
all candor, who can see the good sense or
taste in the Independent in so classifying
Messrs. Moody and Sankey with BateS and
Weston? Where is the harmony, the fitness?
What have they done, that it would be a good
thing for the Government to consign them to a
state of exile ? Messrs. Moody and Sankey
are known both in Europe and America as
great, good and powerful men of God
have not heard of any evil that these men of
God have done. Yet the Independent cries
out, crucify them, and I am left to infer that
these men have not in anything preached and
labored to support the peculiar doctrines of
the editor ; so that every man who fails to
preacn, talk, act or think in keeping with his
views and wishes, then, according to his own
decree, the Government would do a good
thing to exile them—get them out of the way
of the Independent . Just so did Haman
erect a gallows fifty cubits high for the hang
ing of Mordecai.
For my part, I would like to see the Inde
pendent show some evidences of decency.
This it might do, in a measure, at least, by
attending to its own business.
