It isn't afraid to talk, and that's my style of business. I'm doing all I can for you. Every body likes it.-James Crump. sewre,. l. me a«bs. o*tu Aft . IUUlrlICATI NL Editor of Co.oRoD CrrTIZN. Burnc, Mont., Aug. 81.--I learn with much pleasure that there is to be a weekly paper devoted to our interest started in Helena. I am truly glad to hear this and trust the report is not all talk, for we are in need of a paper wherein we may express our feelings and desires. I learn that the Cow.LoD Crrizax will endeavor to reach the household of every colored family in Montana. And the aim of your paper will be to influence every colored man in our state to vote for Helena for the capital. This is a move in the right direction, Mr. Editor, for our people will be lead by their own color. In this move you shall have my hearty co-operation. I say Helena for the capital. Very respectfully, Ray. CHAs. CuNsaNonEanY. To the Editor of the Standard : In the issue of your paper Sept. 6 the colored people of this city take me to task for the article which ap peared in -,Z oLr, UrrIsm, pun lished in Helena. I confess to having written to the editor of Tax CoLORED Crnrsz the letter as published, but when I wrote him it was with no pur pose or idea that it would be publish ed. It was but my private views, and preference for Helena for the capi tal. I did not claim to represent the wishes or sentiments of any one but myself, much less the wishes and sen timents of my people here or any where else. I claim the right of free thought. I simply exercised my right in the said letter, and had nothing occurred since-to change my views I would still hold to the same ; but being recently informed upon good author ity as to the shabby treatment the colored people , have, and do, receive in Helena, being practically excluded from public places and society, I hon estly think, in the light of this new information that I have received, that Helena is not the place for the state capital for my race and people. Hon estly believing this, and knowing that the colored people are not discrimi nated against on account of their color in Anaconda, I shall vote for Anaconda for the capital and recom mend my people to do tne same.

The administration of Postmaster Clewell will go on record as the most eficient and satisfactory yet given to the citisens of Helena. He himself a man of sterling business qualities, ever eager to do the very best, has gathered about him a corps of assist ants able, painstaking, affable and ever anxious to cater to the wants of an exacting publi., who vie individu ally as well as collectively in giving the public an ideal service. Hence it is that the reputation of our ofce stands number one not only at home but abroad.

True, the cap ital committee is leaving no stone un turned, but their noble efforts should .be supplemented with a live, vigorous and ably edited mouthpiece that shall unfold to thousands living fn remote localities Helena's claims and merits for the permanent capital. This is necessary not only to primarly give facts, figures and details to those un familiar with our unsurpassed quall fications, but there is urgent need to rebut foul falsehoods that are studi ously and systematically spread broadcast in every nook and corner of the state by the Anaconda Stand ard. There is no use shutting our eyes to the urgency of speedy and ef fective action in th matter. Our opponents are winng votes daily because only their side of the case is being presented to the masses. We have the merits of the case on our side, but that goes for naught unless properly presented and made known to voters. Anaconda is alert and her able mouthpiece is found in even the remotest sections of the state, while Helena is totally unrepresented. Let us be up and doing, and without de lay launch, put in operation and dis tribute to every neighborhood in the state a live paper that shall clearly and forcibly lay before the people reasons, facts and figures so incon trovertible that not even the well formulated falsehoods of the Standard shall be able to neutralize them. The time for action is short, so let the project be rushed to consummrtion. subser . f e OtUA..n. Onlp At o.. IM'T 1M IIU IINoCE lUl TE11 le irLak aw webr. Thbre he saw Ig Fia, WFm ia The heavy man of the Basin Times, who is evidently a back number, in a recent Issue of his valued paper de livered himself of a very labored effort on "Helena's water supply." We are not Informed as to the value of hip expert testimony on "water," but we have our opinion. His article is too long and tedious to reproduce so we simply clip the following lines which give the gist of the whole. He says: "The writer has'een the time when Helena was twice almost destroyed by ire simply because there was no water at command to extinguish the flames. He has seen the time when dust fol lowed wagon wheels in crossing the Prickly Pear on the road leading to the valley. He has seen the time when Ten Mile creek did not carry sufficient water for the few head of stock that ranged in its vicinity. He has seen the time when water faucets on the east side of Helena's Main street were clogged up with dead bugs and flies and worms. He has seen the times when the water companies post ed and published notices forbidding residents to use water to sprinkle yards or to use it excepting for domes tic purposes." The readers of the Times know bet ter than we what weight to attach to this dissertation on water by its anti quated editor. Whether he spends much time now in search of pure water and is a judge thereof is also best known to them. But there is a serious doubt In the minds of many as to the frame of mind or mental strain he labored under when he years ago saw fles, worms and snakes in our water as he was carted off by the bull-teams of thwe days "when dust followed wagon wheels in crossing the Pridkly Pear." We suggest as a hu mane act that the capital committee bring this editor, who has not been here for these many years, to our superb city, now well supplied with pure water and good whisky, in a special train limited to a short stay. oily so ene fr as emepoed AW." of ae 'M....

BILLINGS, Mont., Sept. 13.-Sir: In common with others of my people sit uated in the eastern part of the state, especially in the thriving town of Billings, we hasten to express our thanks for the successful launching of so bright and energetic an organ as Tun COLORED CITIZEN promises to be, and while giving vent to our pleas ure would also like to inform the res idents of the "Queen of the Rockies" that we are wide awake to the nece sities of the times and that the col ored citizens of Billings are ever on the alert to a.ke the most of their opportunities. We have several men of color occupying lucrative positions of trust who own their own homes and are fairly in the pathway of afu ence. In the van of that number stands the family of Mr. Walker Browning. The accomplishments of the mother and daughters are a credit to the community in which they re side. Iu Miss Lulu Browning, Billings boasts of an accomplshed musician. The popular tonqorial artist, J. Hall and wife, and the urbane Col. James Baltimore and wife, are also valued members of our community. Mrs. R. B. Brooke is an accomp lished lady, and duty co home, com bined with natural modesty, keeps a bright intellectual light "hid under a bushel." In political affairs we have cut quite a swath with delegates to city and county conventions, and the Afro American South' Billings Club is quite a factor in shaping the po. litical destinies of aspirants. Its ex ecutive ofcers are the following well known and affable gentlemen: Walter Browning, p dent; H. M. Smith, secretary; B. B. Brooke, chair man of executive committee. On the capital question they are very evenly divided, the majority possibly favor in Helena. It has a membership of so you will see that in the fertile valley of the Yellowstone we are try ing to keep up the high standard of true and loyal citizenship. Respect fully, B. B.
