From the Daily Herald of January G. Dedication of the New Public School Building. As stated in the Herald last evening, we dispatched a reporter to the new public school building in order that we might be furnished with a detailed account cf the pro ceedings, but the crowd was so great that he found it impossible to obtain access, and was obliged to return without it. The exercises, we learn from a gentleman who attended, were of a very interesting character, and were witnessed by the members of both houses of the Legislative Assembly, judges of the Supreme Court, members of the Hel ena Bar, and a large number of citizens and visitors from abroad. The exercises opened by an invocation by Rev. W . C. Rommel, at the conclusion of which Mr. Abraham Sands, Master of Ceremonies, made a brief but very appropriate speech, congratulating the citi zens of Helena upon the realization of their hopes in the successful completion of the substantial and magnificent edifice dedicated to the educational interests of the Territory. Col. Wilbur F. Sanders was then introduc ed, and addressed the audience in his usual original and eloquent stylo. In the course of his remarks, Col. Sanders stated that the edu cational facilities of Montana may now i'j regarded as equal to those of many of the old communities in the States. At the close of his address, the Colonel, in behalf of the Board of Trustees, formally transferred the keys of the new institute to Professor C. L. Wheeler, Principal of the school. The Professor arose and responded in a well-timed and happy speech, expressing con fidence in the success and prosperity of the institution over which he had been called to preside. Hon. Cornelius Hedges, Superintendent of Pnblic Instruction, followed Prof. Wheeler. He said that this was one of the happiest oc casions of his life—the successful completion and dedication of such a magnificent edifice to the cause of education, the realization of which at the outset appeared to be almost an impossibility. Through the energy and lib erality of our citizens, comprehending the necessity and importance of such an institute, the great work had been accomplished. Speeches were also made by Chief Justice Wade, and Associate Justices Knowles and Blake. The Helena Silver Cornet Band played sev eral beautiful airs at intervals during the in teresting ceremonies. The exercises closed with a benediction by Rev. Clark Wright. ••When Doctors Disagree,'* Etc. Helena, M. T., January, 1876. To the Editor of the nerald: Will you allow me to correct his Honor Judge Blake in his pronunciation of the name of our town? Although he has evidently learned that there is such a place as Helena, as remarked by his Honor Judge Wade, he should not, I think, attempt to teach before he has learned. In the fall of 1864, on or about the first day of October, a meeting of the miners of Last Chance Gulch, Rattlesnake District, was called to meet at the house of Mr. Geo. White (now residing here) for the purpose of laying out and naming the then little settlement. After organizing, numerous names were pro posed, each of which had the word "city" tacked upon it, when Mr. John Somerville (after whom Somerville—Nelson—School District was named) offered a resolution that whatever name was adopted, the suffix city should not be added, stating that if the little settlement should grow so that in the future it should ever be its fortune to be incorpor ated as such, it might then prefix the title. This resolution was unanimously adopted ; whereupon the same gentleman proposed the name He-le-na, which name was adopted. Some discussion arose as to the pronunciation which should be given it, when a copy of Webster's Dictionary was produced aud the meeting unanimously resolved that the pro nunciation should be given as by Webster, IIe-le-na, with the accent on second syllable, the first "e" aud final "a" short and llel-ena, accented upon the first syllable, which is a woman's name, signifying light. I therefore hope Judge Blake's suggestion to the teach ers will not be acted upon, except it be taught that Ile-lc-iia is correct. I claim the right to correct the gentleman as I was one of the original namers of the town. Respectfully, G. B. F. Serenaded. Mr. John E. Pyle, the newly appointed A gentof the Cimmeran Indians, New Mexi co, was serenaded last evening by the Helena Silver Cornet Band, of which he has been a member since its organization. The serenade was designed as a farewell salute to Mr. Pyle, who leaves to-morrow* for New Mexico to as sume the duties of his office. BREVITIES. —Dr. Holmes informs us that Miss Ilettie Stoner, who has been dangerously ill for sev eral days past, is convalescing and will doubt less recover. How the Blood 1« Filtered. \V hen the blood contains the acrid elements which produce rheumatism, gout and venal disorders, the kidneys ought, for it is their office, to filter from the blood, in its passage through them, these hurtfnl im purities. When they do not, they may be incited to a thorough performance of their duty, and the blood thoroughly depurated by that admirable corrective of organic inactivity, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters. Not only is torpidity of the kidneys overcome, through the agency of the Bitters, but digestion is facilitated, bil ious tendencies counteracted. and the bowels stimu lated to * discharge of their function, which, in con nection with that of the kidneys tends to free the sys tem from the bodily refuse, whose retention is so pré judiciai to health. Personal. _Messrs. McCormick and Cave, members of the Legislature from Western Montana, favored the Herald with a visit this morn ing. —Among the Deer Lodgers who arrived on the coach last evening, were A. E.

Still, we believe he will find no better country than Montana. —Among the coach arrivals from the west last evening, were Major W. J. McCormick, member of the Legislature from Missoula ; Alex. E. Ilayliew, Esq., District Attorney for the second district ; R. T. Kennon, County Treasurer of Deer Lodge ; Wesley W. Jones, Chairman of the Republican Territorial Cen tral Committee ; J. C.

We are glad to know that prosperity abides with him, and that he is doing the principal trade in his line, of Deer Lodge county. Charley left $22 in Uncle Sam's currency to pay for the Daily Hekald, of which he has been a regular subscriber during the past eight years. ---- ■** '—m* >■ ^ — From the Daily Herald of January 7. FKOM THE YELLOWSTONE. A Well Known Montanian Killed Indians. by Orrin Mason, who w T as recently killed on the Yellowstone by the Sioux, was one of the most finely educated among the young men of the West. An engineer by profession, a student well versed in the classics, having an intimate knowledge of Greek, Hebrew and Latin ; filling important offices of trust, the last, Clerk of the Court of the First Judicial District of Montana. And with all the prest ige any young man at his age could desire, he left all to better his fortune in the land of the savage, and a bright light was put out by the bullet of the Sioux. In the last week of '71 he made, in company with Harry Horr, the most dangerous trip ever undertaken in the mountains. Both had been living for two weeks on elk "straight," and becoming tired of that, they commenced the work of making snow shoes for the purpose of emerging from, as they termed it, "Camp Starvation." Spruce trees were close to their cabin, and with an old camp axe they roughly hewed something they termed snow shoes. One of the last mornings of 1871 they started. Slow was their progress and bitter was their ex perience. Thinly clad, now plunging into a snow-drift and again falling over brinks where the snow hung over its edge, sleeping in snow-drifts, they at last, on the 1st of Jan uary, 1872, came to Rocky Canyon, a few* miles above Fort Ellis. Picking dead limbs from the trees, they made a fire and soon Harry Horr was in a deep sleep. Mason tried to arouse him by shaking him, but in vain. At last he pounded him with a large limb, and Harry begged him for God's sake to let him sleep. "1 know it will be my last, but Oh, ain't it pleasant!" Mason at last aroused him, and saved his life. These facts were communicated to the Herald several years ago by a friend of both parties, but we refrained from publishing them. Poor Orrin Mason is dead. Brave, generous boy, he saved one life, and now his has been taken by the Sioux. Peace to his ashes. Personal. —J. G. Sanders, of Jefferson City, called yesterday and paid us $10 in greenbacks for Hekald subscriptions. —Mr. T. D.

Important Discovery. The Benton Record says: "We have re ceived a specimen of a new* discovery by Messrs. Sanborn and Smythe. It is a rich cropping of sulphide of lead, or galena, grey color, brilliant metallic lustre, and contains some silver and a little iron. The deposit is in the vicinity of the Bear Paw Mountains and within fifteen miles of the Missouri river. We were already aware that the section of country mentioned was, generally speaking, rich in minerals, but until we examined this specimen we had but an imperfect idea of the value of the galena ore which is largely deposited there. If what we have learned proves true, and we have not the slightest doubt but that it will, the section of country containing the Bear Paw Mountains will be thrown open to the public, the abandonment of the Belknap Agency being seriously con sidered at Washington." That Amendment to the Printing: Bill." When the odious printing bill came up in the House this morning for its third reading, the Hon. Brigham Reed, member from Gal atin county, offered an amendment which substantially set forth that all the Legislative and Territorial printing not provided for by the United States Government, should be let to the lowest responsible bidder. Mr. Reed made a very sensible speech in support of the amendment, but it was lost by a vote of 15 to 11. Mr. Reed, in the course of his remarks, said that he felt it his duty to do all in his power to protect the interests of the people and mitigate the burdens of taxation and the increase of the public debt. His remarks were well received. From the Daily Herald of January 8. Condition ot Maurice Block. The following from the Missoulian will be gratifying intelligence to the friends of Mau- rice Bloqk in Helena : "It is not often that people have the satisfaction of reading obitu- ary notices of themselves. Two weeks ago last Saturday, Mr. Maurice Block of Corval- lis, was shot just under the shoulder blade, the ball passing through his body and com- ing out at the right breast, having evidently passed through the lungs. The wound was supposed to be mortal, and all the reports from the valley up to the following Wednes- day noon were that Mr. Block was dead. And so the news passed up the canyon, and was published in the Deer Lodge and Helena papers. It is a gratifying task to be able to correct these reports. Mr. Block is rapidly recovering, and gives promise yet of many useful and happy days - mm < 44 # Personal —A. B. Keiser, of the Madisonian, arrived yesterday, and will represent that journal during the session of the Legislature. —John F. Bishop, of Watson P.

Agents of tbe Northern Pacific Railroad to Appear Before the Legislative Assembly Next Week. Mr. Langhorne, Speaker of the House, this moruing read a telegram from J. V. Bogert, of Bozeman, stating that he (Bogert) had been notified that Vice President Stark and Chief Engineer Roberts, of the Northern Pa- cific Railroad Co., would appear before the Legislative Assembly of Montana next week These gentlemen will come, it is believed, clothed with full authority from the Co. to submit a proposition of subsidy to that body upon the basis of a speedy construction of their road into the heart of the Territory. --- m •>* 4 ^^» ►► ■-- Election of Officers. At a îegular meeting of Rocky Mountain Encampment No. 1,1. O. O. F., held in Odd Fellows' Hall, January 6th, 1876, the follow- ing officers were duly installed for the en suing term : D. Vinson, C. P.; L. E. Holmes, S. W.; A. D. Howe, H . P.; L. Kauffman, J. W.; Jas. L. Davis, Scribe; D. H. Cuth- bert, Treas. The Flint Creek Mines. The Northwest of the 7th publishes a letter from .Philippsburg, from which we extract the following: "The Trout mine has 600 tons of first-class ore on the dump awaiting the completion of the mill; estimated value, $130 per ton. This ore was taken out in two months, working four men. The cage for the new working shaft, on the same mine, has arrived, and will be put in and the engine set for hoisting as soon as men can be sparec, from the mill for that purpose. The North West Company are also developing other leads—the Franklin and Pocahontas—from both of which good rock is taken out, and the leads show every indication of perma nence. Their mill will be running in a few days, complete in all its arrangements—the only complete silver mill in the Territory, Even before breath is put in, it looks like a living monster whose appetite will be satis fied only with constant feeding of rich quartz When well in operation you will see more silver bricks pass through your village than the Territory ever before saw or dreamed of. The Hope Company are working their full complement of men, and are taking out rich quartz. The improvements on their mill are about completed, and before a week rolls around it will be in successful operation. BREVITIES.
