the glorious fourth.
A l(ur«t of Eloquence from a Hunch of
Deferring to persuasions of neighboring
towns and camps, Helena this year has
consented to forego its customary full pro
gramme of Fourth of July observances,
and delegations of citizens for once on "this
glorious occasion' - will go out among their
friends in the valleys and mountains and
assist by their presence in varions local
celebrations. The "Athens of Montana"
has further consented to contribute to the
celebration of the National anniversary
around and about us by turning loose its
old birds and young eaglets to soar aloft in
near and far empyreans. The eloquence of
Alex. C. Botkin will resound among the
treasure ribbed hills of 'Marysville ; Col.
W. F. Sanders will patriotically orate at
Livingston, and A. J. Craven, T. H. Carter
and A. M. Thornburgh are engaged respec
tively for the day's events at Wickes,
Townsend and Boulder. The metropolis,
owing to concessions, as stated, will less
fully and formally demonstrate than usual,
and the fire-cracker brigade promises in
great part to monopolize the doings of the
day. An elaborate pyrotecnic display in
the evening will be one feature not dis
pensed with, and private exhibitions will
be in order in every part of the city.
To Take Ollice on Thursday.
Chas. D. Curtis, Helena's new l'ost
master, takes office with the beginning of
the new fiscal year, Thursday, July 1st.
The outgoing P. M., Dr. Cuthbert, who re
tires by reason of resignation, has been in
readiness and waiting for some time to
turn over the office. Mr. Curtis this morn
ing informed a Hkkai.ii reporter that no
change in the present stall'of employes
had been considered by him, and that the
past and present efficient and faithful per
formance of the public service could prob
ably not be improved upon and might be
injured by new men. Richard Barden, he
said, would remain, as now, Assistant Post
master, and he knew of no reason now
why auy one of the force should be sub

The .Montana Mining Review.
No. 1, volume 1, is on our table, and is a
most attractive sheet of eight pages, clear,
clean and new, with some fine articles on
Montana's resources and selections from
well trained writers. The Review is pub
lished in Helena every Saturday by Wil
liams & Anning, editors and proprietors.
In making their bow the editors say :
"Our beginning is a modest one, but the
outcroppings of our lotie can be plainly
traced, our boundary stakes are firmly
driven, and we shall go systematically to
work, regularly droppiug our stamps on
all mining news worth milling. We shall
prospect for an extension to our property
and if indications warrant shall increase
our facilities. This of course will depend
largely upon the support we receive from
the miners of the Territory, in whose in
terest we shall labor. Upon them depends
whether the rumblings of our news mill
shall be heard to the uttermost ends of the
earth." Success, we say, to the Montana

The Value of Advertising.
A clear case of lost dog wits made
known through the columns of the Her
ald a short tune since, when a gentleman
of this city offered a reward of $10 for the
recovery of his valuable setter. A young
ster. Clark F., of enterprising proclivities,
watched the opportunity for the time
when he could win the coveted prize. By
a close scrutiny of all "yaller" dogs that
perambulated the city or the avenues
thereto, this small boy was enabled to tell
the age, sex and former condition of owner
ship of every canine about town. At last
his patieut search and indefatigable efforts
were rewarded by the captu. _• of the valu
able setter and bagging the $10 reward.
S. Dull Ac Co., who own the brick yard
at the foot of Rodney street, finished burn
ing a kiln of 180.000 brick last Saturday
and another kiln of 200,000 will soon lie
ready for tiring. The clay is hauled from
Tucker gulch and is of a very superior
quality—in fact so tough that it ha3 to be
mixed with sand. Mr. Duff exhibited,
sjiecimens of the brick, sun dried, that
were hard enough for inside walls. He is
certainly to be congratulated on the pos- j
session of such a splendid clay lied, large
enough for years of active work.

Jack Russell, a veteran prospector and
mine owner, and now a prospective bonanza
king, who was met on the street this morn
ing,Rooking robust and hearty, by a Herald
reporter, brings the latest and best news
from the Cataract district.
The new discoveries lying between Basin
and Cataract, lately made, are of such im- |
portance as to merit the name of a new ;
district to themselves, as is suggested. |
Charles Sterret, Jot ., Radcliff and the two
Axe brothers have struck a , splendid lead
within a stone's throw of the old Rocker !
mine of O. Connor, that promises in lead
and silver to eclipse the richness of the ;
Comet. The Prince Albert group of mines
lying in the center of the new discoveries,
lay from eight to twelve miles in a north
west direction from Wicks and may be
classed among the foremost in that section
of Montana's bonanza belt. Leith and
Vanass have some good prospects in their
group of mines, among which is the Lady
Leith, a discovery made somewhat famous
by being found by a lady, the wife of C. B.
Leith, of Helena. The Alpine is the name
of the discovery made by Mr. Russell him
self on his last birthday, which prospects
away up and looks big enough to satisfy
the three owners — Russell. Huer and
Vanass—and is located close by about the
same distance from Wicks. Harry Winters
and Henry Braun have also a discovery
there that shows splendid prospects. These
valuable new discoveries go far to prove
that the mineral belts of the country are
not half prospected for either silver or
gold, and that when fully developed they
will add untold millions to the present out
put of Montana's mines.
Enjoyed by a Large
Under the auspices of the Ladies Aid
Society of the Presbyterian church the
second of a series of musicales was given
yesterday (Monday) evening in the par
lors of the Governor's hospitable home.
Mrs. Hauser and daughter very gracefully
and cordially welcomed the large com
pany of ladies and gentlemen who early
filled the elegant apartments, and with
little pretense of social formalities easily
and comfortably seated everybody met to
enjoy the entertainment. In two parts,
arranged with excellent taste, were eight
renditions, and in the "cast" Helena's
amateur talent appeared at its best. Both
ladies and gentlemen acquitted themselves,
instrumentally and vocally, with uniform
credit Mrs. L. S. Willson, of Bozeman,
always a prima donna of song, was of
those most rapturously applauded. Es
pecially charmed, too, were the audience
with the fresh, sweet voice of Miss Edith
Wallace, just returned from the culture of
Eastern schools. But it is dangerous to
particularize where all were good and all
were greeted with such gracious marks of
approval. Refreshments, bountifully
served, followed the close of the per
formance, and the collection realized a
very neat sum to the society. Prof. Ross

For Obstructing Main Street.
Last evening Joseph O'Neill and Wm.
D. Weir, corral and livery men, were noti
fied to appear this morning before Junge
English upon the complaint of Marshal
Sims for obstructing Main street. The
parties were both on hand this morning at
10 o'clock and were heard on their own
behalf by the Police Magistrate in ex
planation of the customary practice of
vehicles in front of livery stables from
time to time. The Judge imposed the
lowest fine allowed, which was $1 each
A Herald reporter meeting Mr. O'Neill
on his way from the Magistrate's office
heard him say that livery men should not
be expected to perform impossibilities or
be restricted by severe construction of the
ordinances as to the position of vehicles
that must in the ordinary course of busi
ness remain for a short time at a place
where they could be hooked on to on
short notice. He said that it is well
known that it is the custom of farmers
and others to come in and put their horses
up at a livery stable stable after they have
sold their loads, leaving their wogons in
convenient positions to hook on to at an
early bear in the morning. It is well
known that Mr. O'Neill owns nearly all
the omnibusses in the city, and in order to
to conform as near as possible to the law,
has these vehicles taken to a special
shelter, built outside the city, where they
do not obstruct any street. In the course
of regular business hay wagons are al
lowed by law to stand at certain places
until unloaded, and delivery wagons of
necessity occupy positions on Main street
in front of stores at all hours of the day.
These are matters of business and are
controlled by the universal demands of
trade, and, says Mr. O'Neill, "it [is* pretty
hard that we should be expected to place
the wagon that first comes in the evening
in the back o^the corral, where it would |
be the last reached in the morning."

will close out a busy and Successful busi

Gathering Upon the Center.
A recent and not improbable report is
that Hon. W. A. Clark contemplates mak
ing Helena his family home. Mr. Clark is
a gentleman of intelligence and means.
He is one of the great monetary props of
the great mining camp. In the business of
Butte his banking house will as permanent
ly remain as its surrounding bonanzas.
But evident enough, like others compe
tent and prepared, a residence home for
himself and family is one of the important
matters in late years pressing for settle
ment. Within Montana, Helena unques
tionably offers social and other induce
ments nowhere else held out. The very
near future will witness phenominal
changes in a community already the rich
est, the most enterprising and ambitious of
any of its numberson the continent. Com
plete rail communication will be estab
lished with every importont section of the
Territory. Butte itself will be brought
within less than three hours travel of
Helena. There seems nothing more plausi
ble [than that Mr. Clark should locate his
home here, following the example of many
others of property, discernment and cul

Butte, M. T., June 23. —This afternoon
a man maned •eorge Miller, of Anaconda,
conceivl^ bfcaself to be wronged by the
publioaHion in the Daily Miner of a letter
from that place concerning his daughter,
who eloped and was married in this city.
Miller, with a six shooter accompaniment,
went into the Miner office and asked to
see Editor C. O. Zeigenfuss in private. At
the head of the stairs Miller nulled his pis
tol, saying, "I'll fix you here," and shot.
Zeigenfuss threw up his arm at the criti
cal moment and the bullet entered the
wall over his shoulder. The two clinched
and Zeigenfuss threw the would-be murder

almost crushing the life out of the Ana

office. He was arrested but Zeigenfuss
will not prosecute.

To the Editor of the Hebald :
Since the beginning of his pastorate, a
few weeks since, the Rev. C. B. Allen has
been steadily growing in favor with the
Baptist people and our citizens generally,
who have been fortunate enough to make
his acquaintance. Yesterday morning he
illustrated the effects of a wicked tongue
and an evil heart by an interesting and in
structive parable to the children of the
Sabbath School, at the same time hitting
the older one many a sharp rap for setting
evil examples to their children. In the
evening a masterly sermon was preached
on "Hungering of the Soul," from the para
ble of the Prodigal Son, showing the fru
tility of feeding on the husks of ambition,
power, earthly pleasure, or financial suc
cess, as exemplified by the jealousy, re
morse, disgust and general dissatisfaction
of even the most successful men. The ser
mon was listened to with the greatest at
tention, and it is safe to predict increas
ing congregations and full houses as his
labors are continued. **

Every one who has noticed the vigorous
growth of the box-elder shade trees on the
residence grounds in our city, their large
and handsome foliage and graceful
branches, must have had high hopes that
in this direction our efforts should be con
centrated to provide our dreary and dusty
premises with the so much coveted shade.
There is one serious drawback, however,
to the box-elder. The high wind of yes
terday broke down many of them, and
has destroyed their beauty where it has
rained the tree entirely. The wood seems
to be very brittle, as in the case generally
of rapid growing trees, and the broad
foliage gathers all the strength of the
wind. Either the limbs will have to be
clipped to keep back the growth or artifi
cial supports will have to be produced.
Trees of some kind we must have to re

A Financial Marvel.
St. Paul Globe correspondence : Recurring
to finances reminds me that the June state
ments of the four banks here show Helena
to be the heaviest financial center on the
basis of population in this country, if not
in the world. The actual bankin'g capital
is only $1,570,000, yet the deposits are
$4,154,900. These figures are most extra
ordinary, as two of these banks have
only been in existence from two to three
years. The strong point about these
figures, as indicating the wealth of the
city, is the fact that the deposits are so
much heavier than the banking capital.
For instance, the First National Bank has
$2,325,000, the Merchants National $936,
600, the Montana National $793,300, the
Second National $100,000 on deposit. And
this money is kept moving, through the
channels of trade in legitimate mining in
dustry, in stock investment and through
all of the ramifications of a busy commer
Within Oar Gates.
At the Grand Central is James M. Childs
of Fenno Brothers & Childs, Boston. The
house, as many of our people know, is one
of the strongest in the wool commission
business at the "Hub," and its large Mon
tana transactions, unfailingly satisfactory
are increasing constantly with the recuring
seasons. Mr. Childs will be remembered
as one of our visitors of a year ago, his ac
quaintance being among the pleasantest

and industrial life. The gentleman has
this year made the tour of the continent
with his brother-in-law, A. M. Potter, con
nected with the banking business of Bos
ton, as a traveling companion. Returning
from the Pacific coast, both are making
breaks of some days each at prominent
points within the Territory. The present
stay of Mr. Childs we trust will be long
enough to thoroughly post him not only as
respects our wool, but our mining, cattle and
other great and rapidly growing industries.
The dealings of his firm ought to expand
in Montana, and exchanges of cash, in ad

Billings Ai Cooke City Railroad.
We were shown to-day the map of the
preliminary survey of the Billings & Cooke
City railroad, drawn by Max Brown. The
map is a very fine drawing and shows the
line of survey to be straight for twelve
miles up the Yellowstone along side of the
Northern Pacific to the mouth of Clarke's
Fork. It then follows the Clarke's Fork
south down into Wyoming and then back
into Montana at a few miles distant from
Cooke City. The road will not touch the
National Park, and will be about 155
miles long, including a short branch to
the coal mines on Rock creek. The work
of location is now going on under charge
of civil engineers.

The two popular dry goods houses of
Sands Bros, and VanWart & Co., in order
to be abreast of the march of improve
ment, successfully inaugurated in Helena
last night the very popular idea of closing
their stores at 8 o'clock. The movement
was hailed with delight by a score or more
of interested parties, who were either per
sonally or indirectly benefitted by the early
hours, or in some way connected with those
industrious workers whose hours of toil
and application now cease at 8 o'clock.
Custom is everything, and when this move
ment becomes one of the "customs of the
country" it will be found both profitable
and convenient to all concerned. A Her
ald reporter was informed this morning
by a prom.' aent dry good's man that the
early hour closing last night worked like a
charm and was approved by customers and
salesmen. The movement, like other great
reforms of the age, will extend to other
mercantile persuits until all are included
in the general custom. Frank K. Turner,
chief clerk at the grocery house of John T.
Murphy & Co., has a list of grocery firms
in the city w ho have'agreed to observe the
early hour movement—including John T.
Murphy & Co., Chas. Lehman, Fred. Leh
man, Charles M. Jefferis, John R. Watson
and May Bros. There is talk of the hard
ware merchants falling into line, and from
the apparent justice and business con
siderations involved in the movement it
must sooner or later become a universal

election last evening and elected the fol

In his court during the past thirty days,
Judge English has disposed of no less than
203 cases, and within the same period has
collected not less than $500 in fines. Seven
out of ten of all arrests are of offenders
but a short time in town—strangers, as it
were, to the community.
The Postmaster General does not seem
to think the principle of arbitration ap
plies to him in big treatment of and deal
ings with postal clerks. Without know
ing fully the nature of the offense for
which Vilas discharged so many clerks, we
venture to say that it would have been
fairer and more honorable to have con
sidered the requests of the clerks, than to
have fired them out without warning.
Their rights were j ust as sacred in the eye
of the law as those of Mr. Vilas. We ven
ture to say that they understood their duty
and performed it just as faithfully as the
head of the Department. The offense with
which they are charged is small in com
parison with the act of the Postmaster
General in setting at naught the deliberate
will of CongN8s in its provisions for carry
ing the mails on American steamship

An Important Function Stimulât««!.
The kidneys exercise most important func
tions, which are so wearisome that they tax to
the utmost the strength and endurance of these
busy little organs. Every breath, every pulsa
tion of the heart, every movement of a limb,
every thought, makes waste and necessitates the
development of new atoms. The used up parti*
cles in the blood are sifted from it and dissolved
in a watery fluid by the kidneys, which then
discharge this fluid into the bladder. A train of
disasters to the system would follow if these
"ashes," so to speak, were not thoroughly
strained off and discharged. This is the case
when the kidneys become inactive. Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters, by restoring their activity, not
only keeps open a most important outlet for im
purities, but prevents diseases of the kidneys
themselves, which when inert becomes liable to
fall a prey to diabetes, Bright's disease, mephitis,
albumenuria, and other maladies especially inci
dent to them, which, although not specially rapid
in their progression, are particularly obstinate
and fatal. jyl-3-ft&wjyl
Now again another Hartford Man wins
Occasionally a Hartford man is a winner, and
it is likely to be made in The Louisiana State
Lottery. Only a short time ago a lad named
Duffy drew 85,000, and the money was promptly
forwarded to him. And now Benjamin F. Prouty,
a bookkeeper in Gold street, is the winner of
one-fifth of ticket No. 84,514, which drew one of
the fourth capital prizes of 86,000. It was in the
drawing of May 11th, and to-day he received his
share,81.200. A few years ago the same man
drew 82,000, and was promptly paid. He may be
considered a lucky man.-Hartford (Conn.) Times.
