From the Dativ Herald of May 21. HE VOTED "NO." A Resolution of the Jefferson County Republicans. Boi ldkk City, May 23. —[Special cor respendence of the Herald.]—I desire to call the attention of voters generally and Republicans in particular to the following resolution adopted as part ot their plat form by the Republicans of Jefferson comity at their convention held at Boulder May 14,1888: TVe demand of the Republicans in the Legislative Assembly of the Territory r registration law, and we condemn the Dem ocratic party for having at the last legisla tive session prevented ns from protecting the elective franchise by a law which would enable us to asceitain in advance of the election who were entitled to vote and confining the great privileges to those who under our laws are entitled to exercise the same. The foregoing was adopted with but one dissenting vote—W. Kennedy, who, being in the convention and understanding, as he couldn't help, the application, shouted "No'' to the resolution. As condemning the treachery of Kennedy in joining the Democrats and defeating the registration bill in the legislature, the expression of the Republicans of Jefferson county was timely and proper, and the only regret now is that the resolution was not framed to connect him by name with his perfidity. However, Republicans present admonished Kennedy that as distasteful as was the dose, he must take his medicine and he had to swallow it. A brazen piece of affrontery was Ken D6(ly *8 attempt to steal into the Territorial convention. Procuring a proxy from a non-attending delegate he turned up at Livingston, but his right to a seat waa once disputed, the point being raised by members of the committee on credentials that proxies were not admissable, and fur thermore that traitors to the party had no political rights which Republicans were bound to respect. So insisted delegates from various counties, and had Kennedy, by hook or crook, succeeded in getting a seat he would have been bounced there from by subsequent action of the conven tion. True Blue. Killed While Breaking the Game Law. [Missoulian.] Last Friday Theodore Bernard and Herman Hutter of Missoula, in company with another gentlemen, started down the Missoula river on a prospecting expedition. The party camped at Six Mile Creek that evening, and Bernard took some giant powder and went down the stream to kill some fish for supper. Just how it happened will never be known, but it is supposed the powder exploded in his hands, blowing both arms off and mangling his body and face in a shocking manner. When his companions reached him, he begged them to kill him and relieve him of his suffer ing. He lingered ten hours, when death occurred as a result of his wounds. Kermesse. Through the announcements in the pub lic press people generally learned of the proposed Kermesse for the benefit of St, Peter's Hospital. And there are indica tions that the endeavor to cancel a large debt in this way will be generously sec onded by the people of Helena. The debt, to raise which the Kermesse is given amounts to not less than $2,000, and repre sents in money what has been done in the way of charity during the last three years apart from what has been bestowed by means of reductions from established rates. The date fixed for opening the Kermesse, as has already been announced, is Wednes day evening, June (3, continuing one week or longer if the circumstances justify it. Corbin's Daughter Married. The Pioneer Press of the 19th says : "The marriage of Robert Walpole to Miss Corbin was celebrated in Paris yes terday." The bride, we believe, is Miss Louise Corbin, formerly of Helena, the daughter of D. C. and sister of Austin Corbin. She spent her girlhood's years in this city, where she is admired by a large circle of friends. The groom, we understand, is a scion of the British nobility. The Smelter. Articles of incorporation for the Helena Smelting company are in preparation and will be filed with the Territorial Secretary to day or to-morrow. Nine trustees to manage the affairs of the company will be named therein—seven of them from Helena and two from New York. This will be the first concerted action on the part of the projectors of the new Helena smelter and assures the success of the enterprise. Soon will follow the elec tion of officers and the selection of a site for the works. Several locations are under consideration, but the decision has not yet been arrived at. Smelter Trustees. The following have been named as trustees for the first three months for the Helena Smelter Works : S. T. Hauser, J. T. Murphy, O. R. Allen, A. J. Davidson, A. J. Seligman, H. M. Pärchen, A. M. Holter, all of Helena, and R. R. Rossiter and-- Haberman, of New York. Sold Out. Alderman John Worth is now out of the saloon business, having to-day sold out "The Sideboard" to Strong & Co., who take possession to-morrow. The purchaser, Mr. J. W. Strong, who will manage the business, has been superintendent of the Street Railway Co. for some time. Mr. Worth has becu anxious to go into the auction and commission business and will in a few months open np with Mr. White head in that business in the Granite block, which they have rented and will fit up for the purpose.

The Pressure Tremendous All Over the City, Streams Bursting Hose and Knocking off Shingles. Woolston's Magic Spring Where the Inner Man Was Refreshed and the Outer Man Mounted the Rostrum. Pursuant to arrangements previously made and following the programme an nounced in the Hebald, the test of the Wools ton water works was made yester day afternoon in the presence of the Mayor and City Council, officers of the company and hundreds of prominent citizens. The whole town was ont in carriages and the procession stretched over several blocks. Mr. Woolston, the inaugnrator of the en terprise, occnpied a seat in the front car riage and was master of ceremonies dur ing the afternoon. The result surpassed the expectations of the most sanguine and demonstrated that Helena has an abun dance of water both for fire purposes and domestic use ; that fire engines are super fluities now, and that no gardens or lawns in any part of the city need suffer for want of irrigation. HIGH I'BESSUBE. The procession started from the city hall shortly after one o'clock and made the rounds of the city to test the preesure. This wa9 found to be adequate and beyond the requirements of the ordinance in every case. Hydrants at the following points were tested and showed results as stated : Corner of Bridge and Rodney streets— One stream was thrown ; pressure 50 pounds to the square inch. At the court house—Two streams were thrown high up on the building ; pressure 621 pounds to the square iuch. (The ordi nance requires only 60 pounds here.) En gineer Williams stated that when the reservoir is full the pressure will be five pounds greater at this point Corner of Eighth ave. and Warren street —Two streams thrown, reaching the cupola on the Central school building. Pressure, 83 pounds to the square inch. Corner of Eighth avenne and Hoback street, east of Dry Gulch—One stream was thrown a distance of 235 feet. Pressure, 90 pounds to the square inch. At Northern Pacific depot—This was the greatest pressure recorded, the hydrant in front of the Grand Pacific hotel showing 1571 pounds to the square inch. Corner Mam street and Broadway— Six streams were here concentrated, four on Main street and two on Jackson street, all reaching to the tops of snrronuding buildings and going many feet above. The pressure at this point was 96 pounds to the square inch. The tour of inspection was marked by many notable incidents. At the school house the carriages were bunched and Photographer Beckwith took a view of the scene with two streams playing across each other in the foreground. He also photo graphed the scene on Main and Broadway. The firemen and hose manipulators did well. Through the city the driver of the hose cart kept his horse on the jump and lost no time in unreeling or reeling np. They were exceedingly expeditious. At the depot there was much lun. The old "Tiger" hose cart, belonging to the de pot hose company, was brought out and two lengths were adjusted to the plug, but half the pressure had not been turned on when the old hosebursted in several places, scattering water over the crowd. The nozzle men had to drop the hose, when it began wriggling and writhing over the ground like a snake, obedient to the tre mendous head of water. New hose was supplied twice, but the water broke it each time and finally the water was turned loose from the plug itself, which emitted a roaring stream that swept everything be fore it and reached out a distance of 70 feet. This showed what it would do through a nozzle when a stout hose could be procured. AT THE WOBKS. The pumping Btation was reached abont o'clock and the visitors made an admir ing scrutiny of the vast pnmp and great well. The engine room was decorated with Hags and Governor Leslie tnrned the valve that started the ponderous pump go ing amid the applause of the on-lookers. The sights all seen, Mr. Woolston invited the party to visit a magic spring, which he had discovered iu the woods back of the well. Following his leadership and penetrating some twenty feet of dense undergrowth, they came to a clearing iu the forest of saplings, where, behold, the genial John Worth, standing behind an improvised bar, flanked on either side by bartenders and waiters, who served the company with sandwiches, cigars, beer, wines and liquors. Pomery Sec flowed like water, and there was an equal abund ance of other refreshments. The company declared that the "magic spring" was ahead of the Giant Spring at Great Falls, and |with one accord broke into three cheers for Woolston. After the first few glasses had been downed, calls for Wool ston brought that gentleman to his feet on the table amid lond cheers. He spoke for about ten minutes and in snbstance as fol lows: Honorable Mayor , Members of the City Council and Friends: I am delighted to meet you on this oc casion. I came among you a stranger,— indeed I doubt if one of your people knew my lace. But I came here on business and was not long in becoming acquainted with your business men. And let me say now, and without flattery either, that in all my experience I have never met in any town, city, State or Territory of the United States, a more active, energetic, poshing, enterprising business community than the people of Helena. [Loud applause.] With out their co-operation my efforts and those of the eastern men who backed me would have come to nought But since being backed by your people we have given to the city of Helena as fine water works as are to be found in any city of the United Stales. [Applause.] Judging from our present surroundings one would suppose that water was not very valuable, [Laugh ter] but it is one of the essentials of life. You cannot build a city without water ; you cannot exist a single day without it It enters into some of the vastest as well as some of the most trivial affairs of life. Other so called necessaries we can live without, bat water we most have every day. If yon are convinced, and I think yon are, that yon now have an abundant supply of good, pure and wholesome water, yon can say that yon are far ahead of many a larger city and can congratnlate yourselves on the fact I now heartily thank yon for yonr gen erous support Without it I could have : accomplished nothing. With it I have given yon works that will suffice for all time. The day is not far distant when you will have a city of 100,000 people [Ap plause] and these works will supply you then as well as they do now. With your magnificent resources, mining, etockgro wing jmd agriculture,(and I am satisfied that Mon tana is destined to be a great agricultural country,) the development that enterprise and capital are now performing, I look forward a few years and ask where on the ernst of the globe will be found a more delightful country than your fair Terri tory ? [Applause.] I now thank you for the honor of being called npon to address you, and will conclude by proposing toast to "the homes of Helena." The toast was drunk standing, and then three ronsing cheers and a "tiger" were given for George F. Woolston. OTHEE SPEECHES. Several other addresses were made in response to calls. Mayor Fuller was called upon, bat declined in favor of Alderman Harrison, whom he dubbed "the orator of the council." Mr. Harrison made a few remarks, as did also ex-Mayor Klein schmidt, T. H. Carter, Engineer Williams, of the water works, E. W. Kn ght and Richard Lockey. Each address was received with enthusiastic applause, and after spending two hours at the "magic spring" the visitors resumed their seats in the carriages and were driven to the reser voir. A few minâtes were spent in exam ining this fine piece of engineering work, and then the procession returned to the city. A vast crowd congregated at the foot of Broadway, where the grandest exhibi tion of the day was witnessed. A fire alarm from the tower was sounded and in two minâtes two streams were play ing in front of Parcben's drug store. Four others soon made their appearance, two more on Main and two on Jackson street, and for half an honr adjoining buildings were deluged. The spectacle was applaud ed heartily, and every citizen present re joiced to see such splendid facilities for fighting fire. It was a prond day for Mr. Woolston, and the congratulations he received were in the nature of a public ovation. DEATH OF MPhLAVENBERG An Old Helena Merchant Dies in Butte, Leaving a Large Fortune. Yesterday's Inter Mountain says : Alex ander Lavenberg, familiarly known as "Old Walkerville," died this morning at his home on East Park street. His ail ment was a stricture of the stomach. His age was 54 years. He leaves a wile, two children and a brother (all residents of Butte) to mourn his loss. He also has relatives in the old country. Mr. Lavenberg was an old resident of Montana, having been here since 1867. He was a merchant in Helena at the time of the big fire, and loat everything be bad, without a cent of insurance. He was prominent man in the Knights of Labor organization here, being treasurer of the same. The funeral will be held a 2 p. m. to-morrow, according to the Jewish rites. It is reported to-day that the deceased has left an immense fortune in the old country. A good deal ol' it is in real estate, bnt the understanding is that there is also about $250,000 in cash and securities equiv alent thereto, on deposit with a Berlin banker, who is brother-in-law of the dead man. The truth of the matter will prob ably not be learned until the will is opened, which will not be for a week or more, as it is customary with Jewish fam iliee to devote a week to deep mourning during which no business whatever is transacted. *_ *_ DISTINGUISHED GUESTS. A Party of Boston Magnates Visiting Montana's Capital. Notable arrivals in this city are a num ber of railroad and capitalistic gentlemen, who have jnst come over the Manitoba and Montana Central by special train. At the head of the party is the venerable J. M. Forbes, of Boston, one of the wealthiest of American citizens, a controlling mag nate of the C., B. & Q. system, and one of the supreme ruling forces of leading West ern and Northwestern railroad properties. He is popularly credited with being one hundred and fifty times a millionaire— there or thereabouts—and his eon, J. M. Forbes, Jr., who is traveling with him, the controlling power in the Bell telephone company, is pretty well off himself, with fifty millions or some snch modest sum to his credit. Others of the party include W. S. Alexander, general traffic manager of the Manitoba, F. E. Stone, son of the general manager of the Burlington road, and H. D. Minot, a prominent citizen of St. Paul. The gentlemen, escorted by Col. Broadwater, were driven about the city this afternoon, and expressed themselves much pleased with the thrifty appearance of oar rapidly-bnilding mountain town. From Helena the party will steam to Batte over the Northern Pacific and Mon tana Union, and after a look at the great mining industries of that camp will return here and retrace their journey to the Atlantic seaboard. The Wool Outlook. [Benton Biver Press.] Mr. Charles S. Gibson, one of the sheep kings of Cboteau county, has just returned from a trip to what is known as his Mc Donald ranch. He reports that the weather in that section, since lambing season com menced, has been very unsatisfactory, though no losses have occurred on that account The wool growers are all report ing a large increase in their flocks. Sheep everywhere have wintered well, and the coming clip is going to be one of the best ever gathered in Montana. The staple will be long and of even textnre without a weak spot or a flaw, owing to the fact that the sheep have been in fine form all win ter, and have not had a storm that caused them to lose a pound of flesh—in fact they have been mutton fat all the time. Grass on the range, while it has not yet attained its usual height at this season of the year is much better rooted and heavier than usual, and will, under the influence of the June rains and warm weather, make better feed and more hay than for many years past Food makes Blood and Blood makes Beauty. Improper digestion of food neces sarily prodaces bad blood, resalting in a feeling of fullnees in the stomach, acidity, heart barn, sick-headacbe, and other dys peptic symptoms. A closely confined life cansee indigestion, constipation, biliousness and loss of appetite. To remove these troubles there is no remedy equal to Prickly Ash Bitters.

The high school gave its exhibition last evening at Y. M. C. A. hall. LoDg before the exercises began every seat and inch of standing room was occnpied. Hundreds went away unable to gain admission or even get within seeing distance. The hall was gaily decorated with flags, bunting and pictures, and presented a fine appear ance, thanks to Mrs. Kirkendall and the high school pupils.

The opening song, America, was sung with mneb spirit by more than one hun dred pupils front the Central school. An drew Fretz spoke Horace McIntyre's ora tion, The Common Man, with mach credit to himself, especially when considering the tact that he had only two days in which to commit and rehearse it. Miss Clare Bot kin recited The Tempted Scholar admira» bly. The little folks from Nos. 3 and 4, central building, then sang a beautiful song. The Bells, a recitation by Misses Gerty Reifenrath, Imogen Hemell, Sue Wilcox, Jane Hepner, Florence Fuller, Car rie Feldberg, Marie Kleinschmidt, Hattie Maiks, Emma Cochrane and Ida Silver man, was much enjoyed by the large au dience, and reflected great credit npon the pupils. Joe Amson brought down the house with "The Mule on Deck.'' Little Edith Bickel next recited "The Modern Belle." Miss Edith charmed the audience by her performance. Miss Gerty Reifenrath showed considerable talent as a speaker. After recess Gas Leh man gave a piano solo, which did him much credit. After a song by the school, Theodore Rinda spoke "Horatius at the Bridge." Master Rinda, by hard and patient work, has made himself a declaimer of no small merit. The close attention of everyone in the crowded hall was a high compliment to him. The applause at the close was so great that be had to respond, which he did very acceptably. "Mrs. Maloney on the Chinese (Question" was then rendered by Willie Israel in his inimitable and masterly man ner. His encore was tremendous. Mr. Carleton then read the report of the committee on essays. This committee con sisted of the School Board, and was select ed by the contestants. The committee de cided that "Mirza" and "Birdie Wren" were each entitled to a prize, as it could make no distinction in the two essays. As "Mirza," Miss Mollie Lockey came lorward to read her paper npon "Helena," she was greeted with applause by her classmates. Her essay was unique in beauty of expres sion, fall of richness and style. It was read well and the audience listened with the closest attention. "Birdie Wren," Miss Lydia Kinzle next read her essay. Miss Lydia was suffering with a severe cold and could scarcely speak aloud. She did nobly, however, and read a paper npon our city which would do credit to a much older person. The vocal dnet by Lewis and A my Cohen was one of the best exercises of the evening. They fairly captivated the audience and were encored most heartily. The following won the prizes: For the best essay on "Helena," Miss Mollie Lockey and Lydia Kinzle. In department, Miss Minnie Lange and Mamie Gardner. For the most improvement in speaking, Misses Carrie Feldberg, Sue Wilcox, Gerty Reifenrath, Masters Joe Amson, Andrew Fritz, Gus Lehman, Willie Israel, and Marks Goodman. Harry Yaeger, Horace McIntyre and William Daily received "honorary men tion" for their essays. After another song by the schools the exercises closed. The entertainment was a great success, and reflected mnch credit apon teacher and pupil. Praise is also due the teachers, Miss Fowler and Miss Helen Clarke for their timely and valuable assistance. Mr. Carleton regrets that the Opera House was not engaged for the en tertainment, and thus have given all a chance to attend. But it was not expected to a a to ▲ or The Eckert Will. The will of the late Mrs. M. A. Eckert was admitted to probate yesterday. It names Dr. W. L. Steele for executor, with out bond, and bequeaths legacies as fol lows : To her sister, Hattie N. Ewing, of Chicago, $500; to her brother, John K. Anderson, of Bloomington, Ind., $100 ; to her brother, Wm. J. Anderson, of Monroe county, Ind., $100 ; to her brother, James H. Anderson, of Bloomington, $100 ; to her brother, Henry H. Anderson, of Chicago, $100. To her mother, Nancy C. Perry, of Harrodsbnrg, Ind., the five acres of land with honse and improvements, on which she is now living, for the period of her natural life ; also to her mother $50 per month while she lives. After her mother's death the property willed to her goes to Martha Taylor Eckert Schwabe, of Port land, Oregon, who is named as residuary legatee. The will directs that her remains be sent to Bloomington, Ind , for burial. Perpetrated by Pilgrims. The Independent staff, fresh in the land, may be pardoned for meager acquaintance with the people. One of the scribes this morning connects "Daniel" Hauser with the smelter directorate. The absence from the city of the Independent proprietor alone saves the head of that innocently blunder ing hireling from summary decapitation. Another of Mr. Eastin's roustabouts, de tailed to report the council proceedings, speaks of "the proposition of R. S. Hill offering to deed certain property to the city of Denver if certain improvements were made on Main street !" This minion of the organ's "feriners" will be strangled quick as Mr. Hale, of the East Side Water Company, can draw a bead on him with a loaded syringe.

The Opening of the Wonderland Sea son—Tourist Parties Going to See the Excelsior. Mammoth Hot Springs, May 25.— [Special to the Herald.]—The roads are □cw open and in good traveling condition t ) the geysers. Three tourist parties have made special trips to the Excelsior. It is still booming and seems likely to keep a big column iu the air with full flood in the Fire Hole river. The Grand Canyon is not approachable with carriages but quite ac cessible on horseback. All other roads are free of snow. It is the best sc »on to see large game, as later all animals leave the traveled routes and go into the higher ranges. G. L. Henderson left here May 23d, with the third tonrist party this sea son to visit Hell's Half Acre, Mr. and Mrs. Payne, of Lexington, Kentucky, being of the nnmber now out in the Park. Good entertainment is provided at the Cottage Hotel. For transportation twelve splendid Miller carriages are already stocked with good animals and large tonrist parties can be sbnt out any day. "BROAD." TALKS TOWN. Interview with the Montana Central President on Public Improve ments—Smelter, Rail roads, Etc. A reporter tackled Col. Broadwater this morning with the interlocutory, "What do you think of Helena's prospects ?" "Helena's prospects?" responded the Montana Central president, "they were never better. The outlook is most flatter ing for the progress of onr lively city. The new smelter is goiDg to do wonders for the town and is one of the best enterprises ever inangarated for Helena. It is a speaking commentary tn the stability of the place and insures more trade and more people. The Bimple fact that such works are located at Helena will be an induce ment to immigration and capital. Then, there's the new street car company---the motor line. That will benefit Helena to a great extent. It is a good thing and is bound to succeed. Helena is stretching oat considerably now, and quicker and better modes of communi cation between the East and West sides is demanded." "What abont railroads ?" "There's another good thing. The Mon tana Central branch to Butte will prove one of the greatest boons to the city. It will shorten up the time of travel between the two greatest cities of Montana, and will provide all needed conveniences necessary to the safe and quick transportation of pas sengers, mails and freights. We are going to run two trains a day from each place, and will make the trip in three hours. The local train, which will he provided with a parlor car, will leave Helena abont seven o'clock in the morning, get to Butte at ten, and leave there at five p. m., returning to Helena about eight— thus giving Helena men a chance to ride over to Bntte in the morning, spend seven hours there and return the same day. The through train from St. 1'aul will reach Helena about three o'clock in the after noon and Butte about 6:30. The other way there will he equal train facilities, making fonr passenger trains a day over the road. This will fill our streets with Butte men and will no donbt induce many to make their residence in Helena. With new water works, new smelter, new rail roads and new street railroads, Helena's prospects will be materially enhanced. "Talking about public improvements, though, I want to say a good word for the Electric Light company," continued the Colonel. "1 see a new company is asking for a franchise but I don't want to see them get it. I'll tell you why. The old company is not making money. It is composed of Helena men, who put in their money to give the city the convenience of electric lights, when the town was not big enough to pay such an undertaking. I know that they have not made a cent—in fact they have lost money from the start. They are tar nishing good lights at a reasonable compen sation. Now, would it be lair to allow an other company to come in here and rnin their business? For their enterprise and for the good of the town they need protec tion, and I hope the city council will see it in that light and not discourage home en terprises by allowing outside companies to come in when the field is not ripe for com petition." And so eaying Col. Broadwater left the reporter and took bis carriage for the de pot to meet the Forbes party, who arrived to day. THE ACTUAL FIGURES. Nearly $24,000,000 in Go d and Sil ver Produced by Momana Mines Last Year. Asaayer Braden, as heretofore stated, has transmitted to the Director of the Mint his report of precious metals produced in Mon tana during the year 1887. It is based on a thorough canvass of the mining districts of the Territory, an examination of reports of mining companies wherever practicable and conservative estimates of the product at a few places where the actual figures could not be obtained. The resalt shows a total of $23,796,085.23—an increase of nine millions of dollars over the year pre ceding. It is a showing of which Montana may well be proud.

The mill was erected last year and was 150x30 feet in size. Two engines were used, one being thirty and the other fifty horse power. Unless the boilers can be saved everything in the mill will be a total loss. Nearly three thousand dollars worth of work and improvement« had been put in this spring.
