most of it. There are mischief makers
among the Cheyenues that can only If

Helena is remarkable for her bright
uioAulight night*, aud the -erit- of beauti
ful evenings and "lovely nights we had
during the last jf n«sl of umon.-hiue hx*
tfen made a subject of general comment.
<Jne night, a week or ten days ago. I staid
up very late, sitting in my open w indow,
enjoying a good cigar iu the perfect night
air. The nioou was near the foil, and her
refulgent 1 «earns silvered the top- of the
buildings in sight, transforming into glis
tening pinarets the church steeples iu the
vicinity—and all that sort of thing. You
can imagine the "mellow opalescence of
the pearly sky, illumined by the silvery
light of the l^ueen of Night, ami every
thing else of that description The night
was jfrtect ami 1 hated to go to ifd. hut
xs midnight was near at hand ami my
chum had Ifen alfd for au hour or more.
I concluded to turn in. So closing the
shutters. I began to prepare lör Ifd. I
iorgot to meution that my room 1 » situate«!
in a house clos«- adjoining the resi«iem-e of
one of the fair lflles of the city, t«i whom
these moonlight night» iurnished fit op
portunities tor her aduniers to eougregate
at her house and augment the delicious
ne»s ol' the evening with "moonshine" of
their own manufacture. This night, how
ever. the house of the lair damsel seemed
uuvisited, ami the al*»ence «»t a
gleam of light from the window- thereof
wxs a sufficient announcement to the most
incredulous that its occupants ha«l ictimi
to rest.
Jnst x- I wxs aliout to turn out the
light and jump into lad, the twanging of
the strings of some musical instrument ar
rested my attention ami caused me to sus
pend proceedings aud listen. The sound
floated iu through the « i«j»e«l shutters in
Uni ndsMsss, : hat Nro tkI a.« - a
much more agreeable to me had they Ifeu
fainter. However, I ran to the w indow to
take a peep at the <listiirU-r «»I the peace.
There he .-at with his guitar on his knee,
lsueath the window of the altove lueu
tionetl If lie. Just a- I saw him he Ifgan
to sing, ami warbled forth his warbling» in
au amorous strain, that s«K*n produced a
visible effect. The moon wxs shining
brightly, ami though some di»tau«-e off, I
could see the w hole scene almost as plaiuly
a» if it were ilaylight. « *ne of the win-,
«lows of the house was cautiously o,f ned
ami the head of a female thru-t there
"Is that you. Augustus 'f" came in trem
bling tones from the w indow .
"Yes, dearest," wxs the respon-e.
"Just wait a minute and 1 11 If down."
Borneo waiteii a few minutes when the
head again appeared at the window, aud
this time said in vexed.complaining tones:
"Mas ha«l all the «loors locked and 1
can t get out."
Then they t*oth commiserated a few
moments in gushing accents over their
har«l luck, and ma«le the air If tween the
ground ami the window fairly yellow w ith
wholesale streaks of "tatïy." Finally she
said :
" 'Ou thweet old tellow. ith too ha«l 'ou
tau't kith our 'ittte girl be fore goin away.

The llcclit Hospital Association.

\Ye are informed, and it is a matter of
regret, that the employes of the Hecla
Mining Co. have altout concluded to dis
solve. at their annual meeting on Seplem
ifr 1st, and after that throw the responsi
bility and exjfnse of the sick upon Beaver
bond county. The hospital organization,
after paying out over $.'>,0 <hi last year, finds
itself in debt some which hxs been
advanced and ]>aid by the llecta Company.
The employes of the company claim they
pay every year $11 each |*M>r tax, whith
is $12 more than other tax-payers of the
«•ouuty are required to pay, ami xs the
Boaril of County Commissioners has «le
clined to aid the Hospital Association the
feeling among the employes is that the
couuty should take charge of the |«oor and
sick in the northern end of the county just
the same as it does in other {»arts of the
county. Should the Hecla Hospital at
Glendale close, aud the poor and sick
annually treated and cared for at that
institution if thrown on the county their
care aud maintenance will If ijuite a
heavy burden on the tax-payers.
Sh«tt und Killed.
On Monday Jacob Sjf ith received a tele
gram from Gardiner stating that Frank
Kannis. a miner of Bear gulch, well known
in Bozeman, had been «langerously shot in
the groin by a man named James Stev
ens, asking Mr. Speiih to vnd a doctor
and the Sheriff at once. Dr. Monroe and
O. I*. Templeton left at once. In the after
noon Mr. Speiih received a not ne r telegram
stating that Kannis had expired, ami on
Tuesday Started tor Gardiner, where he is
interested with Kaunis in m.iiing property.
At this time it is difficult to form an idea
xs to the cause of the shooting, hut it is
probably the result of an altercation over
mining property. Kannis is spoken of as
an industrious, j peaceable citizen aud has
many friends here.

To I lie ffoiior of the Hf.uaLD :
To those who have lately i-otue to settle
in Helena from older »ectiou* «1 th«*
country, «me of the most oppressive bur
tleus as well xs oue ot the most serious
olwta- les to the growth of your fair city.
X» it strike» me. is the poor .and costly
water supply. I have always l»een accus
tomed to regard water X* no more the sub
ject of monopoly than air. I find it other
wise iu Helena. 1 fiml that in a targe
part of the city resiileuts have to put in
their own water pipes at great expense
aud theu pay some water monopolists au
exorbitant sum to get an irregular ami
insufficient supply of a very poor quality
of water. Ferhaps your older inhabitants
have liecome accustomed to thi- thing and
leel it less, out it is clear to me that the
situation 1 fiml here would raise a riot iu
many parts of the country, where people
have the reputation of l*eiug much more
taw abiding than here. Helena will l»e
setiously crippled in her growth it this
olistacle is not speedily ami effectually
Are there no remedies to what every one
concedes to lie au outrageous imposition
There certainly are effectual remedies, un
less you have different taws aud fewer
right» than j*e«>ple who live iu other parts
of the country. It is a right that every
community has to lie supplied with such
a necessary of l ie x- water at the lexst
(tossihle cost, and no courts in the world,
at least iu any civilized jmrtiou ol it,
would uphold a monopoly of this article.
Any source of water suppiy available may
l»e appropriated, couilemued and suhjecte«!
to the public use at what a jury may
assess as reasonable damages to prior ap
pro priotors.
It seems to me that this is the subject
of first importance to every property ow ner
and resident of your city, more important
than a city hall or even a court house.
Cost what it uiaÿ, the city should own and
coutrol its water supply, and every citizen
should l*e supplied at the least jiossible
cost. If more legislation is necessary to
incur a general municipal debt for this
purpose it should l»e asked for ami there
can lie no doubt that it will be granted. It
seems*to me that it is the first and highest
duty of your city government to move in
this matter, aud move speedily aud effec
tually. If it is coaceded that private
persons can go on and appropriate all the
water supply in your vicinity and charge
wliat they plexse for what they choose to
give, your health, comfort and very exist
ence are at the mercy of others, a proposi
tion so unreasonable and intolerable that
no civilized community on earth would
accept it.
Without intrmling on your space further
at this time, I propose to follow up this
subject in the future, till public attention
is arouse«! to find relief. A ICTIM.

The first well sunk by the company w*»
drilled to the «lepth of 140 feet, wheu the
hole was dogg«*«i by some tools dropping
into it. These it was impossible to re
move, and the hole had to l«e altandone«!.
Ixn«t year a new hole wx* sunk to nearly
loti feet and pipe driven into it uearly the
winde depth, wheu some obstruction wx
eucountered in drilling, and the aonne of
the well was diverted trom a straight line.
It wxsthen found iui|ios»ihle to prosecute
the work without going to great expense,
ami work wx* abandoned on it until this
summer, when only two w«*eks ago the
contract to siuk the well 1,<HJU feet from

The contractor first had t«> sink a shaft
to lied-rack (which he calculates to strike
at the depth of aliout 1UU feet in or«ler to
straighten the hole and get things «mce
more in shape for «trilling. The shaft wx*

now dow n fifty feet. At this depth water

two days the contractors have been at
