UNDER THE STREETS.
How the Work of Building Sewers is Progressing Beneath Our Feet. In view of the aspersions that have recently been cast upon the character of work done on the sewers and the publica tion of reports calculated to arouse a sus picion that incompetent workmen are em ployed thereon to the detriment of the work, Engineer Miller, the city super visor, yesterday invited a Herald reporter to tour of inspection through the sewers. Of course, the sewers of Helena, are not as large as those of Paris and other great cities which one can drive thiough in a carriage, but they are large enough for anyone to see just how the pipes are laid and the kind of work done. The soperinteDdent first took the reporter down the shaft on Sixth avenue at the rear of Murphy & Co.'s store, which is the surface connection with the main sewer down East Chance gulch. To lay this sewer, the contractors were obliged to TUNNEL UNDER THE I5IG FLUME that runs down Gulch street. At the time of the reporter's visit yesterday, three workmen were busy laying the large, 24 inch pipe in this tunnel. The manner in which they went about it showed the careful work of experienced hands. In the first place, the bottom of the ditch is hollowed out until it conforms as nearly as possible with the convex outlines of the pipe. The bed is then prepared on the grade indicated by the engineer. Then a joint of pipe is put in place and the work of joining it to the preceding one is begun. This is a delicate operation and the men spare no pains in making a perfect joint ami will work at one length of pipe for several hours in order to get it just so. The bottom of the pipe on the inside must be on the exact water line surveyed by the engineer, and in order to do this the utmost care is re quired in making the joints. Grade pegs, driven in the bottom of the trench at close intervals, are THE INFALLIBLE GUIDES. When the pipes is laid, the men use a straight edge to assist them in placing it properly. The straight edge is a long piece of j inch board, perfectly straight on one edge and beveled on the opposite at an angle that varies with the gradient, a dilferent straight edge being made for every change in the grade. Consequently when this instrument is laid on tlm grade pegs and a spirit level placed on its beveled edge, the plane of the bevel most be a true water level. Hence when the pipe is dowD, the straight edge is run through a couple of joints and the projecting end rested on a grade peg. i}' the pipe is in the proper position, the bevel on the straight edge will be level; if not. it must be worked with until that level is secured. This test is applied to every length of pipe and not a joint is finished until the spirit level tells that all is right. As an in spector, appointed by Mr. Miller, stands over every gang of pipe layers and sees that the work is done in this manner, it is impossible for any bit of pipe to get in on a wrong grade line. The result of such care is that, alter the entire sewer is built, the bottom of the pipe will not vary a fraction of an inch FROM THE TRUE LINE. The ieporter looked through a stretch of 500 feet of pipe at one place and the eye could detect no variation in the line for that entire distance. How ever, as any irregularity could not be no ticed at such a distance, smaller stretches of pipe were examined. Men carrying candles crawled into the pipe for twenty or thirty feet, and held the light on the bot tom in a direct line with the eye of the ob server. In every case the bottom looked as smooth as though it was one long un broken pipe, such is the nicety with which the joints are fitted. In making the joints and packing the pipes the same care is observed. The joints are filled with cement, carefully mixed in boxes, and laid on in a manner that will make the pipes water tight. The packing which is thrown at the side and immediately on top of the pipe is COMPOSED OF SOFT EARTH containing a good deal of clay, and entire ly free from stones or hard substances that might press against and break the pipe. This packing is hauled specially for the purpose and the pipe is buried iu it to the depth of one or two feet. The dirt exca vated is then thrown on top cf this, the whole tamped and puddled, so that when the ditch is filled to the surface of the street there is rarely or never any sinking or depression, which shows that the filling has been done in the best possible manner. The above observations were gleaned from visits to several different points on the sewers now under construction. At every point were lound the city inspectors, looking after the syle of workmanship and everywhere the same care and nicety of operation were noticeable. Mr. Miller says the work already done has been performed in the same satisfactory manner and the character ofwoikmausbip so far displayed on the Helena sewers will fully equal if not sur pass the style of work done on the sewers in St. Paul and other large cities. He says he and the contractors desire the City Council and the citizens of Helena to visit the work, examine it and satisfy themselves as to the manner in which it is being done. As to what our reporter saw yesterday he is satisfied that, as far as he understands such work, it is being done in a thorough, workmanlike manner, and there seems to be no danger that the city will ever suffer on account of defective work on the pipe laying. Engineer Miller, without doubt, under stands his business, and Green & De Witt are experienced contractors, who know what they are about. Mr. Miller says that if any man in Helena thinks that bad work has been done at any place since the undertaking began, he will be happy to in vite the City Council and members of the press to inspect any portion of the work designated. Cider for Ben. Chicago Herald : About two weeks ago an old fellow called at the Harrison house. It was early in the morning daring the breakfast hour. He called for Gen. Harri son in person, and when he came oat the old maD banded in a brown jug and said : "Gen. Harrison, here's some o' my own cider, an' I want you to drink it all by ver own sell ; I'll call in about a week for the jug." The General accepted the gift with thanks, and faithfully promised to drink it. He did so, and he is saving the jug for the old Hornier who said he wonld call for it_ _ _ A Story of Gen. Lee. Atlanta Constitution: Although John MinorjBotts was a strong Union man, Gen. Lee continued his friend during the war. Just before the march into Pennsylvania, Mr. Botts said to Gen. Lee : "You have been fighting an army away from their homes, bnt when yon strike the Northern firesides yon will find it a differ ent matter. They will rally like black birds. They are made of just as good stuff aa we are, and you will be defeat«!." The General shook his head sadly. "I know it," he said. I am opposed to it. I only obey orders." a THE RAILROAD WALK-OUT. Review of the Strike of the Engineers of the Montana Union. [Butte Inter-Mountatn.] If there was plenty of coal in Butte, and ore conld be sent to Anaconda by telegraph, the public conld afford to look complacently on tliis misunderstanding, and we think public sympathy would be with the en gineers. The Inter Mountain is always in fa\or of making the condition of working men as pleasant as possible, particularly that of engineers, whose occupation is especially dangerous and responsible. But there are two sides to all questions. We have presented the private side, and it is favorable to the engineers as an orderly, bnt independent set of men. Now for the public side. There are 25,000 peo ple at this end of the Montana Union road. They all have to work for a living. Nearly 5.000 men work in the mines, perhaps 2.000 work in the mills aDd smelters. A thousand more are mechanics for the min ing companies in various capacities. At Anaconda there are 2,000 other men at work supporting a population inclusive of themselves of 6,000 souls. Thus in the two towns 10,000 men are being employed, the other 21,000 being women and children. Of this 10,000 workmen there is not a sin gle individual who is not dependent for his employment on the continued operation ot the mines, mills and smelters. The smelters are dependent for the indispensa ble necessities of ore and fuel upon the Montana Union railroad with its connec tions. The Montana Union railroad is de pendent, for the present, at least, upon the twenty-seven engineers. If tfceie engineers will not work, the railroad must cease operation, the mines, mills and smelters must close, ten thousand men must be de prived of emplcvment and the business of two cities, containing together more than 30.000 people, must be paralyzed. These are the plain lacts of the case, and we commend them to the calm and de liberate consideration of the engineers as an unselfish and intelligent body of men. In their professional capacity there is not one among them who would not risk bis life to save that of others. Can they not come to an amicable understanding of the present difficulty, to preserve the employ ment of ten thousand men and their fami lies on the verge of winter and the ap proach of the season of festivity? What a Christmas we should have iu Batte with all the mines and mills closed down and the works at Anaconda shut up till May! If a question of wages were involved, if the engineers were complaining of under pay as well as overwork, the Inter Moun tain wonld not hesitate to denounce any man or any company who might refuse justice to the men who guide the iron horse ; bat it is simply a question of the discharge of one man whose removal to a new position the superintendent has promised at his earliest con venience. Admitting that the men have good cause for discontent, is there no chance for a compromise? Can not the matter be arbitrated? Must the greatest mining camp on earth he tied up over one man or 27 men or 2,700 men? Let us hope that reason and good feeling may inter vene and avert a danger which threatens the prosperity of Butte. If this matter be not speedily settled there will be many a baby who will hang up his stocking in vain on Christmas eve. A TYPICAL BOURBON. Congressman Oates, of Alabama, on the Ostracism of Southern Whites and tlie Disfranchisement of Southern Blacks. Washington special: Nothing since the election has created such a sensation here as the interview with Representative Oates of Alabama, that appeared in the New York World Friday morning. Col. Oates is the ablest and most infinential member of his delegation. He wears an empty sleeve to show that he lost an arm in fight ing for the lost caase on the Chicka hominy. He is a member of the judic iary committee and led the fillibnster ing that deleated the direct tax bill at the last session. He says that this bill, which refonds to the Northern States money advanced by them towards the prosecution of the war, shall not pass while he is in Congress unless the Repub licans will consent to add a clause refund ing the cotton tax collected in the South daring the war. Bnt it was not of that Col. Oates talked in the World interview. He commented on the supposed policy of General Harrison toward the Sooth and the suggestion that the new President wonld appoint Protectionist Democrats and liberal members of that party to offices. Col Oates said it wonld make no difference to the white people of the South who were appointed to offices down there by Presi dent Harrison ; that every white man who accepted an appointment from a Repnbli cau administration, whether he was a Dem ocrat or not, would be ostracised by his neighbors. The Colonel further said that there will be no split in the Solid South until the negroes are disfranchised, and declaree he believes that neither the negroes, China men nor Indians should be allowed to vote. As long as the negroes bave the ballot the white people of the South will be solid against them, and will prevent their exer cising the right of suffrage as far as they are able to do so. Col. Oates also an nounces that the Democrats in the next House, will, by fillibustering, prevent the Republicans from increasing their strength by admitting contestants to seats, and the Repnblican majority in the Honse on the closing day of the Fifty-first Congress will be very little, if any greater than on the day of the session. National Park Matters. CoL E. C. Waters, manager of the Yel lowstone Park hotels, was in St Paul a few days since, and in the coarse of an in terview with a Pioneer Press reporter, said: "Onr business the past season came fully up to our expectations, yet at no time, I think, did we fail to accommodate our gnests. There will be two fine hotels built next season instead of one. One at the Grand canyon and one at Yellowstone lake, as well as many minor improvements. It is not a fact that the park is so infested with wild animals. There are many elk, antelope and deer, as well as a small herd oÇhuûalo, bnt mountain lions and bears are not so numerous. In fact, I never saw bnt one bear in the park. Iam interested as all Montana men are in seeing onr Terri tory developed. There are two companies now organized to bnild into Cooke City by wgy of the Rocky Fork and Clark's Fork coal fields, and I am informed that one of them will be bnilt next season. This will open up the best mining camps in Mon tana. t _ ___ Capt. Daly's Challenge. New York, December 6— Capt. James Daly, the swordsman, wants to fight Charley Mitchell.

The Commander-in-Chief of Grand Army Interviewed. the New York special : A buzz was created in G. A. R. circles this morning by the ar rival in this city of Gen. Warner, Grand Commander of the Grand Army of the Republic. He is the guest of the La Fayette post of this city, and to-night monster reception was tendered to him at Masonic Hall. Grand Army posts in the adjacent cities of Connecticut and New Jersey and np the Hudson river partici pated in the lestivities. A reporter found the Commander-in-Chief at the Fifth Avenue hotel this afternoon. When asked about what would be the resalt of Demo cratic veterans in Indiana withdrawing from the G. A. R , he said : "I haven't heard of its extending ontside of the State of Indiana. In tact, Ijknow.no reason why there should be any discontent. The G. A. R. neither gives nor denies fav ors to a comrade because he belongs to this party or that. The fact is that it grants to its mem hers the largest liberty on sectarian and political questions, never attempting to interfere with a comrade in the exercise of his individual opinion in these matters." "A dispatch from Chicago," remarked the reporter "reported you as saying, at the reception which was tendered yon there they would be better off by the withdrawal of tbe Indiana comrades and all others of their ilk." "If such a dispatch was received," promptly replied the general, "it entirely misrepresented me. I do not refer to the withdrawal of Gen. Palmer or any other comrade. I simply stated what I under stood to be the underlying principles of the G. A. R. I didn't refer to the move ment said to exist in Indiana. I did say in substance, that the platform of the G. A. R. was good enough for every good citi zen who presents an honorable discharge from the Union army or navy and has a good character to stand upon, regardless of his religions or political opinions." "It is claimed by Democratic veterans that they are ostracized from G. A. R. posts and the fact of their having served with distinction in the war counted for nothing, as their Republican comrades regarded them as either copperheads or rebels." The general thrust his hands into his pockets and replied : "I have never seen any distinction made befeeen comrades because of their politi cal affiliations; out of deference to the varying political opinions of my comrades I refused to make any political speeches in the recent campaign." MONTANA DIVIDENDS. Over $3,000,000 Declared this Year— New and Old Dividend Payers. The table of dividends for the eleven months of 1888 just passed, which was published a few days ago, was premature. Further reports show some additional divi dend payers for November, ahd also bring np the total to over $3,000,000. Following is a corrected list of dividends paid by Montana mines trom January 1st to Decem ber 1st, 1888: Boston Si Montana (copper).....................£ 400.000 Granite Mountain................................... 1,600,000 Hope....................................................... 50,000 Jay Gould............................................... 196,000 Montana Limited.................................... 534.600 Parrot................................................... 146,000 Original................................................... 6,000 Hecla Con............................................... 165,000 Dunston.................................................. 6,000 Total...............................................83,103,600 The declarations for the last month were Boston & Montana, $200,000; Dunston, $6,000; Jay Gould, $10,000; Parrot, $36,000; Hecla Con., $15,000. This was the first dividend for the Dunston company and from indications it will remain steadily oq the list of dividend payers. The mine is situated in Jefferson county near the fam ons Elkhorn. Another item worthy of note is that the Alice Gold and Silver Mining Company, of Bntte, will pay December 10th, dividend No. 26, of six and one-qnarter cents a share, aggregating $25,000, makiog $775,000 paid to that date. This will be the first div idend paid by the Alice company since September, 1886. It is remarkablejthis year that the mines of Montana alone have paid over one quarter of the whole amount of dividends declared by all the mines of the United States and Mexico daring the same period. SOMETHING ABOUT SNAILS. Their Great Nutritive Value, and How to Cook Them. [Professor Castegnier, In Medical Classics.] Something like 90,000 pounds of snails are sent np daily to tbe Paris markets from the gardens of Poitou, Burgundy, Cham pagne and Provence, where they are specially reared for this purpose, the natur ally delicate flavor of their flesh being im proved by feeding them on beds of aromatic herbs. It is not merely, however, as a del icacy that snails are so generally appre ciated in France. They also take very high rank as a nutritious food, and from the time of the ancient Romans downward they have been regarded as excellent in consumption and "weakness" of the chest. Acording to Payen they contained 70 per cent, of water, 16 per cent, of nitrogen, 7 per cent, of fat, 2 per cent, of salts, and 5 per cent, of undetermined matter. Dr. Ebrard, a French authority, who has made the snail his special study* declares that the weight of meat repreeented by the snails sold amounts to that fonnd on catting np a whole flock of calves and yonng heifers. He estimates the monthly consumption of snails in Paris at half a million. The market price of the great vineyard snails is from 2 f. 50 centimes to 3 f. 50 centimes per 100, while those from the hedges, woods and forests bring only 2 f. to 2 50 centimes. The proprietor of one snailery in the vicinity of Dijon is said to net over 7,000 f. annually. The snail is reared and fattened with great care in some cantons of Switzerland as an article of laxary, and is imported in a pickled state. It is also eaten as a relish and nutritions article of food in Austria, Spain, Italy and in some sections of the United States. The Ashantees and other African tribes smoke them and eat them as daily food all the year roond. In Algeria in the markets large heaps of snails are sold by the bnshel and the hun dred as an article of food. Venders hawk them in tbe streets of Cairo. In modern Rome fresh-gathered snails are hawked by women from door to door, and the honse wives serve them either broiled in their shells or stewed or fried in oil. It is a com mon sight to see in an Italian city tbe people gathered aronnd a number of bas kets filled with snails, waiting for them to be thrown into a large iron pot suspended over a fire made between fonr stones. Herbs and love apples (tomatoes) are added, and when done the broth is retailed to the expectant bystanders. As the cook ladles ont the sayvory concoction she or he gives utterance to trade cries. Altogether the scene to an American is quite sugges tive of the colored hawkers of "hot com," "hot corn."_ _ Death of a Veteran. Rockport, Mass., December 6. —Thoe.

After a severe struggle, in the last ronnd the spec tators, with one accord, demanded that the fight be declared a draw, which was ac ceded to by the referee. Glassey's left eye was completely closed, and he was other wise badly punished. McGinnis was in a pitiable condition. Not only was his right jaw fractured, bat the left one also.
