v \cu Departure.
Alter near a score of years in the active
and energetic work ot running a planing
mill for all it was worth, and with the
prestige oi its l>eing the tirst ot its kind in
the Territory. Messrs. A M. Holter A: Hro.
have retired from the planing mill busi
ness iu Helena, and sold their machinery
and stock to Messrs. Ketchum. Zastrow A
Co., of this city. It was au eventful day
in Montana when Holter «Y Hro. were able
to «apply the demands of builders for
mat« hed tlooriug, moulding, and panel
doors when the-e matters of publie utility
were a luxury that few eould afford to
bring from the States. The planing mill
therefore of Holter Ac Hro. at that early
day was a public benefaction, and so ap
preciated by the early timers that it
-erred them greatly in building up the
towns aud supplied the proprietors with
the ready cash that lorined the nucleus ol
their present ample fortune.
Far these many years the planning mill
whistle in our town sounded the welcome
morning salutation of "all s well, except
when silenced by the contlagration of 1871
which destroyed the null building and par
alyzed its machinery. The same energy
that had made the mill a sucre«« soon
built another one and pro»ided it with bet
ter and more costly planers, saws and -
lathes. As it stands to-day. transferred to
Messrs Ketchum, Zastrow Ac Co., it is ca
llable of doing the Iwst of work and a great
deal of it in a given time, and as rapidly as
any other mill in the Territory.
Messrs. Ketchum, Zastrow Ac Co., the new
owners, are a firm well-known to our com
munity and are worthy successors of the
Holter Brothers who. for enterprise and
steadfastness of purpose, bear with them
in their retirement from this active busi
ness the substantial proofs of public j«at
ronage and approbation.
We wish the new owners of this valu
able property the success and prosperity
that their iudustry and enterprise so richly
merit, and the retiring firm all the results
attendant upon a successful, profitable and
active business life.

The deplorable condition of Butte society
is thus depicted by an Inter-Mountain
writer : "There are more tramps, piek
jiockets. bummers, thieves, thugs, and
mnrderers in some parts of Butte to-day
than there are in all the rest of the Terri
tory combined. Scarcely a night passes in
your SilvenCity without a "gun play" or
without some poor wretch lieing knocked
down and "rolled" of everything he
)x»Messes. Tin reputable citizens of Butte
know little or nothing of the opium smok
ing, the deliaufhing. the blood letting, the
crime, and the total depravity which exist
in Butte. There arc hundreds of incipient
Con Murphys there ; men without visible
means of support, too lazy and worthless
to work, and who can earn a livelihood
only at the expense of honest men. This
element of Butte's population has doubled
within the past six months, and it is con
stantly increasing in number How the
wretches manage to exist is a mystery.
They receive no countenance nor support
from the mjuare gambling men. who un
derstand them to lie a thoroughly dis
reputable and dangerous set. and who are
probably as as anxious to rid the town of
them a* any other das« of citizens"
Hubs of the fniyerse.
W. D- Howells, the novelist, in "A Flor

said that "almost any would choose to
live in Florence if he did not live in Hod- !
ion, or New York, or Helena, Montana,"
our northern exchange, the Benton Hirer *
7Vo.*, is inspired to remark ; "We con
gratulate our neighboring city upon lieing 1

More liiillroti from the Drum l.umnion
The hulIioD received yesterday by the
Merchants National Bank was the last of
the shipment* for runs made at the I)rmn
l.utnrnon mine for the month of January.
The aggregate run for the month, amount
ing to $75,000, is a very good -flowing. con
^jderinn that a portion of the stamps in the
pernumeaej of the great lode and the prac
great mill were hung up for a part of the
time for repair*, and which were left in
f»ad shape by the former management. As
it is. under the new management of R. T.
Hay lisa, the < General Manager, and Henry
Hratnoher. Superintendent, it is expected
that the mine aud mill will produce $100,
000 for the short month of Fehl uary.
From Mr. Ed. Delaney, who has spent a
month at Marysville, we learn that great
changes have been made by the new*
management in the interest of ttie stock
holders and for the credit ami reputation
of the mine itself. He also states that the
citizens of Marysville have reassured con
iidcnce in everything pertaining to the
-
ticability of the officers and men in charge
of every department. With Mr. Jtayliss as
General Manager and Henry Hratnoher as
Superintendent, every department runs
without the friction noticed in the former
management, which made things run un
pleasantly liewise of the preference shown
to classes an.l nationality. At present
there are no favorites, and a man, in what
ever capacity, who is competent and doesliis
duty will become a fixture lieeause of his
merits, and not because he is a favorite
countryman. Mr. I.uther is in charge of
the machinery, and Mr. Setten has control
of the i«ns and settlers, and the stamps
are under the management of a practical
machinist, who h»d the confidence of the
proprietors of the Alice mill at Butte.
It is with great satisfaction ami conti- ,
«lerne that the owners and stockholders
recognize in the new management a happy
family of practical miners, experts, man
agers, su|ierintemlents and machinists.
All that is wanted for such a bonanza as
the Drum l.iininion is the intelligent, prac
tical knowledge of «ach men as have charge
there now to make it one of the greatest
producer* of the precious metals in the
world.

Important Sale.
Tae valuable property in the city known
as the Juuilio block, on the corner of
Broadway and Warren street, w as knocked )
off this morning, under a forced sale, at
#30.000 to Mrs. Elizabeth Yaw ter. Several
of the prominent capitalistsof Helena were
at the sale, running the property up from
$20,000 until it was hid off. The sale of
this property, end the price abtained for
it, is a very suggestive pointer to the value
of real estate in a central portion of the 1
city. As an investment the purchase is a
good one and it will bring 12 per cent in
terest in rents.

Correction.
In the Herald's report of the proceed
ings of the Council of the .'id instant, Pres
ident Armstrong is credited with having
introduced certain hills relative to the cor*
porate authorities of Bozeman. The re
port should have stated that Armstrong
introduced C. B. 3d, an act to amend «je«;*
turn 1,219, ol' chapter 67, of* the fifth di-'
vision of the revised statutes ; C. B. 31, an
act to amend section 155, of chapter 2, of
first division of the revised statutes; C. B.
35, an act concerning liounty for killing
certain animals ; C. B. .'16, an act to amend
the second sub-division of section 211, of
chapter 19. of the third division of the re
vised statutes.
Comity AttorneyLaw.
A law providing for county attorneys is
generally sanctioned by the press and the
people of tbe Territory. Two bills looking
to this end are pending before the I.egis
latnre—ooe introduced by Kennedy, of
Missoula, aud another by l'orbis, of Silver
Bow*. The tormer is considered by many
the liest of these measures. It provides an
ulisolutc salary for the attorney, and also
that the officer shall receive tees for the
prosecution of misdemeanors before Justices
of the Peace and Probate Judge, to be
taxed as costs to the defemlant in case of
plea oi guilty or on conv iction. The Anr
Xtrrth-H'tid savs: "This bill will enable
the County Attorneys to appoint deputies
in other towns of the county than the
county seat, the deputies to receive the
lees ; whereas, if the County Attorney re
ceives only a certain fixed sum as a com
pensation he will not lie disposed to ap
point deputies to lie paid out of his salary,
and would lie disposed to begin all his
prosecutions at the couuty scat, sometimes
brmging defendants and witnesses long
distances at the expense of the county.

« tards from Mr. Edison, on which were
pasted the parti« les of platinum obtained
from the concentrate* sent. The cards and
samples of platinum can be seen at Vir
ginia City. The local paper looks upon it
as one of the most important discoveries
yet made in Montana.

The Christian Church.
A walk over to the west side ot the city
in the bright sunshine and bracing air
that greeted the inhabitants of Helena this
morning amply repaid our reporter for the
short space of time consumed in that ex
cursion. The substantial buildings, w ide
a red porphyritic conglomerate, used the
yards of private residences all tell in uu
mistakahle language of the imjiortame
that the west side is fast assuming as a
residence part of our city. Among the
few public buildings that have recently
been put up oa that side ot the city, the
Christiau church, on Henton avenue, is one
of the most distinguished, both as regards
its handsome exterior and the admirable
adaptation of the interior to the use*» for
which it is designed. The architecture is
distinctly Gothic in all points. The main
walls of *ht edifice are built of blue lime
stone. with rough cut surfaces and hand
somely pointed at the interstices, while
the trimmings and buttresses are made of
first time in Helena, we believe, in the con
struction of this chnrch. Mr. W. A.
Peter*, of this city, is the architect, and
the structure will ever remain a* a monu
ment to his taste and skill.
The finishing of the interior is massive
ami very handsome. The carpenter work,
which was done by Ketchum, Zastrow A:
Co., will tie finished to-dav and Mr. Wm.
Lorey, who, we believe, has the contract for
painting, will soon complete his work. I
The seats, which are to he run in ana of
circles, with two main and two side aisles, j
have not yet been pat in. and the only
thing that yet occupies the floor is the
stand for the pulpit.
The heating and ventilation of the
building are perfect, the heat lieing sup
plied by the latest pattern of an automatic
hot air fnrnacc, and the cool air by ventila
tors in the windows ami by a cold draft
box. which runs from tide to side of the
building, and which emits the cold air
through registers in the Moor that can lie
opeutd and closed at will. The win
dows are of handsome stained glass, each
one of which is surmounted by an appro
priate emblem.
The reporter is iudebted to the Rev. U.
L. Streator for his kindnes in showing him
throngh the building and explaining its
manifoldconveniences. The Disciples are
certainly to be congratulated on the com
pletion ami possession of such a handsome
and commodious place of worship.

Cheap Postage.
The clause in the postoffice appropria
tion bill increasing the weight of single
letter rate and reducing the rate on news
papers issued from th * office of publication
reads as follows ; "That upon all matter
of the first class, as defined by chapter 1*0
of the laws approved March 3, 1-72, and
by that act declared subject to |<ostage at
tbe rate of 3 cents for each half ounce or
fraction thereof, postage shall lie charged
on ami after the first of July, 1—5, at the
rate of 2 tents fot each ounce or fraction
thereof: and upon all matter ef the second j
class, as defined by said act and by that
act declared subjeet to postage at the rate
of 2 cents for each pound or fraction
thereof shall lie charged on and after the ,
fist of July, 1*85, except as prov ided in
section 25 of said act approv ed March 3,
1879, 1 cent for each pound or fraction i
thereof, and all acts so tar as they fixa
different rate of postage than herein pro
v ided upon such, first and second class
matter are to that extent hereby repealed
on and after July 1,1885."
Bott * Mtr-Mountain : Gambling is the
fertile parent of poverty, vice and crime,
keep« the victims poor,aud throws their
families on the county for support. The
money that comes into the coffers of the
keepers of gambling houses is applied to
no useful purpose ; they are fast livers and
parasites on society, and their influence is
harmful! to all affected thereby. There
may be a direct gain to the cities and
counties where these men pay license to
ply their minons trade ; bat there would
be a greater gam if the money they ab
sorb were applied to legitimate uses.
Further than this, the morals of a com
munity must never be set in the scale
against the price of their betrayal.
G. R. I >avis, of Billings, who has returned
from a visit to the Crow Agency, reports

any part of the reservation. The few who

sign a protest against it. Several of the
prominent chiefs arc desirous of visiting
Washington aud there entering their pro
tests against the lease. Mr. Davis accom
