THE HELENA WEEKLY HERALD ^ the Oldest, Largest and Best
Weekly Newspaper published in Montana. It is so well and widely known that no word of
ours is required by way of introduction. The publishers are desirous of accomplishing two
objects—first, to add to their already large list of subscribers 10,000 New Names; second,
to establish an absolute cash-in-advance system, and thus do away with a double subscription
price—$3.00 if paid in advance, and $4.00 if not paid in advance.
To accomplish these results we have determined to offer DIVERSIFIED and VALU

The Helena Reduction Works a Cer
The Herald has good authority for
saying that all the capital necessary to
carry ont the great smelter enterprise has
been secured by ex-Governor Hauser.
The amonnt subscribed by Eastern parties
reaches $800,000. It is settled that the
plant will be located at Helena—that is to
say, as near to the city limits as onr people
can desire. Supterintendent Raht, in
charge of the Wickes and Toston smelters,
is now investigating the Omaha redaction
works for the instruction of himself and
the Helena projectors in building the new
Removals and Renewals.
The removal of A. J. Davidson from his
present saddlery stand on Main street,
where he has been so eligibly and com.
fortably situated for the last eight years,
is not undertaken without a broad-gauge
estimate of the advantages that will accrue
to his business in a larger building, such
as he will occupy in the Knights of Labor
hall. The removal from such a stand as
the old Davidson quarters is not made
without regret at leaving his old time
neighbors, and of course is not under
taken without dne consideration of the
problem as to whether it will pay. In ad
dition to getting more room in a larger
bnildiDg, Mr. Davidson has the advantage
of $2,800 a year rent for his old stand,
which will soon be occupied as a variety
store. Of course the old coterie of the old
gnard who have so long attended roll call
around the hospitable stove of Mr. David
son will from now on have to go farther
and probably fare worse. It will be like a
renewal of business for Mr. Davidson to
open out on such an enlarged scale as will
be presented at his new stand on North
Main street, so near the depot of the Mon
tana Central depot.
Another removal at an early day will be
that of the Second National Bank, which
has leased the first floor on the north side
of the Power-Sullivan block for their busi
ness when the building is completed, and
where the officers of that institution will
open at their bank with new furnishings
and conveniences. It is calculated to com
mence business in the new hank building
about July 1st, in time for Messrs. Galen
aDd Jones to commence the work of
demolition of the old structures prepara
tory to the buildiug of their new block on
the ground now occupied by the Second
National Bank and the Pelletier saloon.

Wi re and Ruby Silver.
A telephone message from Philipsburg
states that they have struck five feet of
ore in the San Francisco. The strike was
made Monday. It is in the crosscut from
the shaft at the 400-foot level. The char
acter of the ere is wire and ruby silver.
They did not expect to striR ore in the
crosscut for sixty feet yet and are surprised
both at the locality of the find and at its
richness. The report of the strike has
created a good deal of excitement in
Philipsburg, where there are many small
holders of the stock.
Food makes Blcod and Blood makes
Beauty. Improper digestion of food neces
sarily produces bad blood, resulting in a
feeling of fullness in the stomach, acidity,
heart barn, sick-beadache, and other dys
peptic symptoms. A closely confined life
causes indigestion, constipation, biliousness
and loss of appetite. To remove these
troubles there is no remedy equal to Prickly
Ash Bitters. It has been tried and proven
to be a specific.
The '*Pale Faces.*'
This is the generic designation of the w bite
race bestowed by our copper-colored brother, the
"noble savage." The Caucasian, though many
shades lighter, is not necessarily pallid. But
when his cuticle has the parchment-colored tint,
and his cheeks the hollowness indicative of a
want of bodily stamina, he well deserves the
appellation of "pale face." These facial Indica
tions should suggest a course of Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters, an acknowledged réhabilita tor of a
failing strength and renewer of bodily substance.

From Um Daily Herald of April 27.
Arrest of Walter B. Marsh on the
Charge of Being "Teton" Jack
son, the Noted Idaho Jail
An individual answering the name of
Walter B. Marsh, but who, it is claimed, is
none other than the notorious jail breaker,
"Teton" Jackson, who a short time ago
escaped from an Idaho jail, is being held
in the county jail here awaiting the ar
rival of officers from the adjoining Terri
tory who are to identify him. Marsh in
sists that he is not the person desired and
has, throngh his attorney, A. F. Burleigh,
of Helena, to whom the prisoner tele
graphed while in transit, applied to the
court for a writ of habeas corpus, which
hearing will probably come np this evening.
The gentleman was on his way west in
charge of officers who, it appears, had ar
rested him on the charge somewhere in the
eastern portion of the Territory, and were
conveying him to Idaho when stopped
here by the mandate of onr conrt. The
man arrested is the same who some two
weeks ago figured in a sensational capture
at a point near Bozeman, wherein the ser
vices of a posse were brought into requi
sition but which finally was not needed,
the prisoner being found asleep. At all
events, be he or not the mnehly desired
personage, he will be given an opportunity
this evening of stating and explaining just
which one of the "fellers" he is. The ex
amination will take place at about 7
o'clock, before his honor Judge McConnell
in the district court room.
An Oregon Temperance Man Declines
a Third Party (Prohibition)
George I'. Lent addresses to the Ore
gonian the following card declining a pro
hibition nomination for office, and his
reasons therefor the Herald commends to
the careful reading of friend Davis Will
son, with the kind and brotherly advice to
imitate the example of the Portland gen
tleman. Says Mr. Lent :
Onr good friends, the prohibitionists, are
very générons in their nominations. I was
mach surprised the next day after their
convention to find myself presented as a
candidate for the very responsible office of
connty commissioner.
While I feel gratified to be named for so
important a place by the good and respon
sible people who composed the prohibition
convention, I cannot accept the nomina
tion. Two years ago, without giving the
matter much thought, I allowed my name
to be used on the prohibition ticket. Since
then I have thoroughly investigated the sub
ject and I am fully convinced that it is not
wise to pæs prohibitory laws. While I
realize that the evils ot the liquor traffic
are as great as they ever were, prohibition
will not cure them. Education and train
ing must do the work of reform.
As long as one half or more of the peo
ple want saloons they will exist. When a
large majority of the people do not want
them, public sentiment will frown them
ont of existence. The spirit of prohibi
tion is directly opposed to individual
liberty, individual responsibility and local
self-government. Stringent license laws
will do much towards abridging the evils
of tho liquor traffic.
Terse Talk.
[To the editor of the Herald :]— T 3m a
good, staunch Democrat—at least I have
always had the reputation of being one—
and I want throngh yonr columns to most
emphatically buck against the manner in
which our party paper, (or it should more
properly be called Hauser's paper) is
being managed. Here, of late, everyone is
being abused.misquoted, misrepresented and
slandered. The Independent is being made
the organ of prize fighters, sensationalists,
spys and gossipers. No attention is being
paid to the political issues of the day or
legitimate news matter. Reporters are paid
to stand in the watch tower or on top of
Mount Helena (both of which points are
located in the editorial room of the rotten
concern) and "pipe" off honest and in
offensive citizens then hold them up to
ridicule in the columns of the paper.
Bare-taced lies have been placed iD
print, some of which have been credited
to Mayor Fuller, but which, every fair
minded citizen knows he did not utter. I
doubt even if the mayor submitted to an
interview; if he did, he acted unwisely,
for, instead he should bave allowed his
boot to come in contact with the bosom of
the reporter's pants and show him
the door. What we want is
less bickering and personalities; it is
none of the Independent's business what
Mayor Fuller does. The Mayor has his
party to account to ; none other. Let the
Independent look to our interests and, in the
name of Heaven, give us a clean, legitimate
newspaper, such as characterized it daring
the regime of the late J. E. Hendry, and
before the St. Paul tramps crossed within
our borders. Democrat.

A Glance at the Burning Bore and
What is Going on Therein and
Thereabout as Told by an
Eye Witness.
From a gentleman who came in on the de
1 \yed east bound train yesterday and who
personally inspected the tnnnel fire and
also examined the switchback, it is let. ned
that the latter will be the only means of
crossing the monntains for some time. Of
the 900 feet of sheds at the western en
trance to the tnnnel less than one hundred
feet remain standing and that is the be
ginning of the structure. The approach is
in a deep cut. The ties in many places
where the track is cleared were
burned and have been replaced, while the
rails lying alongside of the track, warped
into every conceivable shape, show the in
tensity of the heat. A force of men is at
work clearing ont the debris, and flat cars
loaded with burning timbers and earth
are ran down the track and unloaded.
Yesterday when the east-bound train
passed the tunnel the men were at work
cleaning the cut some 600 or 700 feet from
the entrance, which is entirely closed with
the exception of various apertures through
which volumes of smoke issue. The ground
there is ol dry and crumbling character,
and it is constantly becoming dryer from
the heat. It will require the removal of
an immense quantity of earth after the
fire in the tnnnel shall have been extin
The switchback is seemingly in most
excellent condition. A party of gentle
men walked over while the train was
being crossed in sections. The road-bed is
firm and the rails good. Every precaution
is taken by the company, and each train is
taken across the range by men who have
been at the tunnel and on the switchback
since its construction.
Thursday's east-bound train was aban
doned at Garrison, where the passengers
were gnests of the Northern Pa -itic at the
Cafe d' O'Neill. Bed and hoard were
ordered for all, and the hotel did a thriv
ing business.
The Helena and Butte train, which left
Butte at 4 p. m. yesterday, arrived here
about noon. There is still some delay in
crossing at the tnnnel, but the schedule
can be shortened at other points, and in a
few days at the outside, the traius will be
running on schedule time.
Action of the School Board Concern
ing the Management of Scholastic
At a meeting of the board of trustees of
the Helena schools held yesterday,

Cummins has been raised to the position
made vacant by Mr. Carleton. The salary
of the superintendent of schools is $2,000
per annum, aDd that of the principal of
the High School is $125 per month.
In addition to the above changes, the

The Public Schools.
Helena, April 28. — [To the editor of
the Herald :]—Your prediction as to the
result of the recent election of a school
trustee has come trae quite promptly.
Having no more interest in the maUer
than any other parent, 1 nevertheles-, wish
to express my regret that the insistance of
one man who is not a parent should de
prive the people of this city of the ser
vices of so thorough and competent an
educator as Prof. Howard has shown him
self to be. Perhaps the next legislative
assembly can mend matters by providing
a better system of school administration
for populous districts than is afforded by
three trustees. Parent.
Grand Army Matters.
Friday evening's session of Wadsworth
Post, G, A. R., was occupied to a late hour
with business matters—the muster of can
didates, action on applications for
membership, disposal ot bills, payment
of dues, etc. AmoDg the applicants for
membership were war veterans living at
Great Falls, Wickes, Marysville and other
distant points. Department Commander
J. G. Sanders was present and took part
in the impressive ceremonies, administer
ing the oath, delivering the charge, etc.
Commander Shaw called the attention of
the post to the maimed condition of a
comrade at the Farmers' Home Hotel, dis
abled from a recent accident at Marysville.
A committee of arrangements on Decora
tion Day was appointed, the initial meet
ing to take place this (Saturday ) evening
at the office of Commander Shaw, Masonic
building. _____
The Tunnel Trouble.
The burning sheds at the west end of the
Mnllan tunnel, of which reference was
made in yesterday's issue, this morniDg ex
tended their fires to the main entrance,
setting ablaze some of the dry portion of
the aperture. It is not apprehended that
any serious result will accrue, as the
dampness of the interior is such that the
timbers will not ignite, hence confining
the fire to the extreme outlet. The east
end of the tunnel also has been heavily
embanked with earth, thereby preventing
any draught, and all means are being de
vised to stop the progress of the fiery ele
ment. The overhead line is being placed
in condition for travel, and it is calculated
to run trains thereon this evening or to
morrow morning and continue them till
the aperture can be again placed in pass
able condition.

Dr. A. C. Bishop.
The Butte Inter Mountain pays the fol
lowing tribute to one now stilled in death :
Seldom has Butte sutfered the loss of a
citizen who is so generally and sincerely
mourned as Dr. Bishop. He was animated
by the best impulses of human nature.
Brave, loyal and generous, he never har
bored a dishonest thought or contemplated
a hypocrital action. A splendid man, he
was full of energy and hope, a friend of
the sick and poor and an enemy to all op
pressors. Dr. Bishop's unpaid practice
should be his proudest monument. When
his patients have suffered poverty as well
as pain he made no note of his services,
yet cared for them as tenderly and dili
gently as though they were millionaires.
We have known him not only to take
charge of cases without the slightest ex
pectation of payment, but from his own
fonds buy the medicine required and carry
it to the sick room in storm and darkness
as though fat fees awaited him. Yet Dr.
Bishop was a poor man—poor in every
thing sa\e generous thoughts, confidence
in his fellow creatures, hope for their suc
cess, love for his family, and charity for all
the world.
