We were so absorbed In the conven tion last week that we hadn't time to call on our merchants and business men for advertisements and cash, but promise to do so next week. We have so many prominent citi sens that it will be some weeks before we can give all a line of mention. But we will reach you sooner or later, as we are proceeding on the install ment plan. John Hooper Is another of our best type of young men. Always industri ous, polite and painstaking he com mands steady and lucrative employ meat. He has made some judicious lavestments. William C. Roee, better known as Tex, is superintendent in charge of the natatorium of the Broadwater ho tel. He was a great favorite of the late Col. Broadwater and is held In high esteem by the family. Jack Robinson Is one of the land marks of Helena, having come here in bull-team times. Re is hard work ing and frugal. He is working on some valuable mining properties and hopes to strike it rich some day. W. J. Robinson is one of those sober, steady-going young men that always command respect. He has charge of the bathing department at the Broad. water and is rated the best Turkish bath manipulator in this section. Sam Henry, the well known head waiter, has charge of the Broadwater this year. As he is a great favorite and a thorough business man, of course perfect satisfaction is given. Mrs. Henry is with him at the hotel. Mrs. V. Taylor is the proprietor of a nicely furnished, neat, clean and ord erly boarding house No. 116 Jackson street. Visitors wishing a good place to stop will make no mistake in select lag her house. We were shown some very tasty ad handsome floral designs, the han diwork of Miss Edith Millen, one of our brightest and most promising young mimes. We wish more of our young ladies would turn their atten tion to the cultivation of useful ac quirements and benecialoccupations. We are pleased to note that Mrs. Emma Hideout is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs James Crump. She will probably remain some time, as her health has been poor since her resi dence in Butte. Mrs. Rºdeout was for a long time priorto her marriage one of the most popular young ladles ln the city and is still held in the highest esteem. Charles Gatewood deserves special mention among our prominent citi mens. He is an electrician, skilled and favorably known from St. Paul west. He has charge: of the Helena Electric company and is regarded as one of their most valued and trusted .aployes. He ;omnands steady em ployment at a good salary and is rated among our most enterprising men. James Mack is one of our oldest and best known citizens and is regarded as a landmark by old-timers. He is noted for his rustling qualities and genial disposition. Mr. Mack is the owner of valuable improved real es tate and is rated as one of our most substantial citizens. He is head mix ologist at the Hotel Helena, where he dispenses new and life-giving decoc tions to eager patrons. Mrs. Mack is a most worthy lady and is a great favorite. Tan usua lwcene of a big steamship with a black captain and entirely white crew and omcers were seen at New York lately in the person of Capt. Godlng, of the British steamship Ethel Gonda, 1,728 tons, and which sailed on July 17 for Aden, Bombay, etc. No one who saw Capt. Goding would doubt that he was of the gen uine African race, but It is asserted by his subordinates that no skipper could enjoy their respect and coni dence to a higher degree than he does. To attain such success of course a black captain must be rated 100 A 1 all around-New York Marine Journal. Dollas Demal is another of our most stable and well to do citizens. He is sober, industrious and saving, which perhaps accounts for the snug little sum he is called on yearly to contri bute to the tax fund. He is a leading light in the church. Alonzo Leatherberry is the head waiter of the Hotel Helena, the tony resort of the city. He is a gentleman of fine presence, handsome and pleas antly polite. and is a great favorite with the traveling public. He is single and is on record as quite a lady's man. E. G. Cole is one of the thriving business men of the city. He is en gaged in the furniture business and also has a second-hand department in connection therewith. He. has in. vested in real estate and other ven tures and is in comfortable circum st.Rces. Walter Scott is a great favorite with the business public. He runs a good looking express wagon and does a steady and lucrative business. Mr. Scott owns a very pretty homestead with ample yard on one of our hand somest streets. He has a very estim able wife, several married children and a very handsome young daughter. The death of Mrs. Lousia Howard, while anticipated, cast a gloom over the community last week. The fun eral, which was held at the church, was very largely attended. In com mon with many friends who mourn her lose we extend kind sympathy to her bereaved children. The remains were interred in the new cemetery, where beautiful floral offerings were placed on the grave. Phil Simmons, as he is familiarly known, is a hard political worker and a great favorite among political mag nates. When Phil is for you he works with zest and never lets go as long as there is hope. He was a delegate to the county convention and made a neat little speech which called forth hearty applause. He is also a mem ber of the county central committee and a leading light in the republican league club. Ladies, he is married and has a most worthy and estimable wife. William Woodcock is well and fa vorably known by every man, woman and child in the city and also has a large circle of acquaintances throughout the state. He is also one of our most enterprising business men, owning and operating a steam carpet cleaning establishment which is patronized by all of our best citi zens. He gives employment to a number of hands. Mr. Woodcock has three interesting, bright and worthy daughters who are great favorites with the whole community. '4ULH'T SFAPU 1O (Ti" About seven hundred copies of the Colored Citizen were distributed in Helena last week. The balance of the two thousand two hundred and fifty copies were sent to every city, town and neighborhood in the state. The highest compliment that we could ask for has been accorded. Everyone has had a kind and encouraging word for our venture. Many warm hand shakes with words of. welcome advice have been lavished upon us. For these unmistakable marks of appreciation we most humbly return heartfelt thanks. However, we in common with others before, have to record the ever-existing "exception to the rule." Out of the twenty-two hundred and ffty copies distributed, only "three (8)" have been returned "refused." Oneof thee was by a man and the other two by a woman. W e rec highly complimented at these two ex r eptions and gracefully bow compli ance. We will gladly and willingly erase these names from among the list of "our prominent citizens," whom we made mention of in our first issue, and among whom we had erroneously included their names. In FlM MPAITIIY. Tms m the Wwbr. The pride of Helena is its Fire De partment. Why not let our visitors see it in operation? We do not advocate a break-neck run down our main ave nue, but would rather see the appartus on a gentle gait. Many of our visitors would be pleased to see the depart ment in practical operation. It is therefore suggested that when an ex cursion is in the city that the depart ment be trotted down to Hapmarket Square, connect the hose and give an exhibition of several streams of water under full pressure. Seattle takes just pride in its fire boat Snoqualmie and whenever an excursion Is in the city she is trotted out in mid-bay and turns loose her fourteen large streams which always afford pleasure to the eager gasers. Let us show our goods to visitors. They are all new, first class, and will bear inspection. We have no feature of our very many at tractions more catchy than our noble ire laddies and their handsome and well kept apparatus. So turn on the water and send it skyward.

(Prom the Anaconda Standard, of course): A PROTUBT. Burn, Sept. 6.-Having seen in T.ir COOan CrrtzxN, a sheet pub lished in Helena, an article that the colored citizens of Butte are void of reason, signed by one Charles Cush Ingberry, pastor of the A. M. E. church, we wish to say that he has certainly overstepped a law of reason when he thinks or believes a negro in Butte wll cast Lis vote other than for Anaconda. Why, a negro cannot even receive any respectable treat ment in Helena. Marion Cooper, who has just returned from Helena, says it was impossible for him to get either food or drink, and when anyone be lieves that a negro will vote against his own interests he is wrong. Such is not the case with the colored citl zens of Butte. We sincerely believe th it every colored voter will In No vember cast his vote for Anaconda. COLOarD CITIZENS. (Sub rosa-Written by tle Stand ard's devil during lunch hour). We don't believe Brother Horace Cooper (we are very careful to use the full name for fear some other Coopers may live in Butte and we wouldn't like for them to be dragged into this Horace Cooper affair) said it was impossible for him to get either food or drink in Helenr. Brother Horace Cooper has told an elastic lie (charitably treating the above fake as a genuine "protest"). We don't believe there is a place in this state where it would be impossi ble for Brother Horace Cooper to get either food or drink, unless perchance he is an ex-Coxeyite, with a thread bare reputation. Brother Horace Cooper in formulating his lic was very careful not to say where it was impos sible for him to get either food or drink. He certainly don't locate the offence in Helena. Perhaps it was somewhere else and the Standard set tied on Helena as the place. Now if Brother Horace Cooper really was in Helena recently, we believe, (taking it for granted that he was sober enough to tell the truth when the Standard man gave him a "short horse" as a consideration for the aforesaid lie), he told a lie, the whole lie and nothing but a lie when he said It was Impossible for hit to get drink. That's what's the matter. It was drink, drank, drunk and drunken, and very at that. Now Brother Horace Cooper the next time the ;tandard man sends you to the future cap Ital city to gather up some lies for Anaconda, don't you drink so much. The way you drank rotgut while you were here as a visiting statesman in the interest of Boss Daly would put a Seattle 8iwash to shame. Go see Rev. Cushlngbery of your city, Bro. Horace Cooper, and get him to inter cede for you. You want the prayers of the church, you vile sinner. Come and drink with us Brother Horace Cooper when you come to the capital city again.

The usually handsome surroundings of this attractive resort bave appeared more beautiful than ever. The treat ment of guests and visitors without exception has been royal. The gen uine hospitality that greeted every one was refreshing and much in con trast with the typical summer resort. The epicure with most fastidious taste never departed without compli menting the imported chef de cuisine and his able assistants. The manage ment of the diningroom has also been most highly spoken of. Especial favor able comment has been made upon the superior and homelike mangement of the inner household bearing unmis takable evidence of the masterly hand of a matron mother.

To the Editor of the Standard: In a recent issue of the Colored Citi aen, a journal published in the inter est of the colored people of the state, I noticed an article from the pen of Rev. Charles Cushingberry of this city in which he says the colored voters of Butte are pledged to vote for Helena for the capital. Mr. Cushingberry has no doubt been mis Informed, as the majority of the col ored voters of Butte are in favor of Anaconda, and I think that during the coming fight they will give a good account of themselves. Respectfully, Butte, Sept. 6. LINK Guosa To a number of inquiries as to who, where and when is Parson Link Gross, we can only say that we believe he is a distant relative of Dirk Botts-Hoke Smlth's man Friday-and that he is a Daly striker for Anaconda (and for cash). From Mr. Daly's standpoint, however, we presume he is eminently respectable, and to back up this pre sumption, which we do not vouch for, we present below a typewritten letter of recommendation sent out by the Standard presumably for the purpose of giving tone to Parson Link Grow: hnm ULk bu~r' Whi "rhie." PEDEr HAS A PUDDING. THAT'S THE WAY SOME SLIPPERY LA DIES TELL IT. BUTTE, Sept. a--On July 29, Wm. Jefreys, a Pinkerton detective from Great Palls, wandered into one of the colored dlves in East Galena street and was robbed of $240. The police succeeded to their own satisfaction in fastening the robbery on "Pedee" Gross, but as Jefreys was unwilling to prosecute her there was no arrest made. Yesterday Pauline Foster, Alma Love, Lottie McFarlane and "Pedee" Gross were arrested for non payment of fnes. The three first named jumped at the conclusion that they had been arrested for the Jeff roys robbery, and they proceeded to "peach" on "Pedee" in the most open hearted style. They all swore that they saw her take the money and told in detail how the robbery was ac complished. The other girls say that they are getting tired of being ar rested for robberies and other things perpetrated by "Pedee," and they threaten to get even with her as soon as they regain their liberty. They also claim that the police discrimi nate in "Pedee's" favor, and that she repeatedly escapes arrest when she ought to be punished, and that they have been arrested when she ought to have been. "Pedee" was released on S100 cash bond. The others are still in jail. Su..e As as oi..m. omg MUrNs. to c"pin boutas A It disk Nded. The Colored Citisen bows in humble acknowledgement of the flattering reception accorded its first appear ance by all classes of citisens. Sin cere thanks are returned for the many complimentary greetings, verbal and written, that have been bestowed npon us, and we trust that we shall ever continue to so cater to the wants of an appreciative constituency that our efforts may meet with a hearty and responsive second.

Our Helena printers are deservedly well paid and they want cash down for their work. That is right. While we are very much pleased to see such an excellent corps of able and worthy candidates se lected by our recent county conven tion, yet our exuberance thereover does not overcome the stern realities that beset our financial void on pay day. Our columns are open for all acceptable matter at fixed rates that may be had on application.

Fir Aissewi Jtler of the Upreme Curt. The nomination of Judge William R. Hunt by our state convention for as sociate justice of the supreme court, was,indeed,a most worthy and merited compliment to an able, pure and dis tinguished jurist. Hereabouts over the length and breadth of our incom parable state his ability and purity of character are too well knoyn to re quire more than a pawning allusion thereto. However, we cannot pass the opportunity of adding that our personal acquaintance in Louisiana, where he was also a shining mark, of members of his distinguished and respected family, than whom none more eminent are there, enables us to speak knowingly of the many char acteristics hererditary and acquired, possessed by the distinguished nomi nee who will undoubteev be elected by an overwhelming majority for the position he is so admirably adapted. suberms. olr ae o4...

Gcorg" Mitchell is a colored man, mouthy, conceited, presumptious and suffertue with a virulent case of swell head. He is a political acro bat of the worst type. He came to this city a few months ago and set tled in the first ward. He huas done odd jobs until the campaign opened. George is a slick looking fellow with a Websterian head as smooth as a billiard ball and with a pair of poodle dog eyes and large ears on either side. At first glance he would be taken for a Louisiana preacher or ballot box stuffer. His suavity of manner and soft talk are captivating; hence George soon ingratiated himself into the confidence of the simple plain folks of the First ward and as he car ries in his side pockets a collection of almanacs, stale congressional records and the like he soon was looked upon as the coming man of his ward. George is very loquacious and long winded and it is no uncommon thing for him to spellbind the eager and attentive First warders for hours at the time. By and by the ward pri. marles came on and George waxed happy as in the days of yore down in sweet Iberville where the sugar cane grows. He marshaled his club to gether in a shack with beer kegs for seats and a kerosene barrel for a ros trum and told his men that now was the opportunity of their lives and that they must stand by him for dele gate to the Republican county con vention. On the night of the primar ies the said George at the head of his club marched in and took possession of the First ward, electing himself and eleven white men as delegates to the county convention. This is the way George Mitchell got into our re publican county convention. No soon er was the convention called to order than George was on his feet and from that time on so obtrusive, obstreper ous and obnoxious did he become that the whole convention as with one accord ordered him to dry up and sit down. But George lacks modesty as well as good sense and with his ears flapping he persisted id braying and sawing the air with meaningles motions. It was at this juncture that the colored delegates and spectators ceased to forbear and their pent up Indignation asserted itself in a spoo taneous outbreak of just retribution and as the deadly cyclone swooped they down upon the unsuspecting blatherskite. They laid hands on his brawny form and told him he must go, as he had disgraced his peo ple quite long rough. George bucked, but in the eyes of these determined men he saw pent up vengeance, so he quietly allowed himself to be thrust bodily out of the convention hall. Thus ended one of the most embarras sing episodes it has ever been our mis fortune to chronicle. The colored delegates to our conventions have uniformly been men of standing in the community and who have reflect ed credit upon us as a people, hence a feeling of mortification exists over this unfortunate occurrence. Better that the 1st send .no colored delegate in the future if the men thereof are so gullible as to allow any tramp, who may gather about himself a following, to thrust himself forward as the rep resentative of the colored people of that ward, of whom there are many and eminently respectable ones at that. It behooves the leaders of the First to look to their reputation in the future and-shut--out-men- who-go about snorting and braying and poe ing as representative colored men. Representative colored men are noot build that way, neither do they act that way. Give us straight goods hereafter or none at all. The colored citizens of this city will never again tolerate a man like Mitchell to be palmed off by the First or any other ward as a selected representative of their race.

A recent special from Berlin should be noted with care by workingmen, especially those who voted for a change in 1892. It's a bitter pill, yet it's the fact that the new tariff bill plays right into the hands of foreign manufacturers. Please read the fol lowing with care and paste it next to your cranium. It will help you in do ing the right thing at the coming election : "The effect of the new tariff bill has been instantaneous in Berlin, Frank fort and other export centers. The very day the law went into effect in voices passing through the United States consulate general increased 60 per cent., and on the following two days the number was doubled. * " * The whole German export trade to the United States will be increased, owing to the passage of the United States tariff measure, from 100 to 160 per cent. for some month; if present indications can be relied on." assberse r a I. cU6em. On! aIv as. The republican state c ention was called to order last Thursday by the Hon. Ice Mantle, chairman of the state centrl commlttee. In do lag so he delivered one of the inest addresses it has ever been our good fortune to hear. It was a most full and complete resume of the national political situation and was a most masterly arraignment of the demo cratic part for its unaumersble short comings. For clear and logical pros tation of incontrovertible facts suc cintly massed in bristling array, It has few parallels. For calm and con vincing delivery Mr. Mantle has few peers.
