Townof Anaconda vs. City of Helena
M1lT i\A.
Plain Facts and Figures For the People
on the Ins:allment Plan - Why
You Should Vote for Helena.
Now comes the city of Helena and
for answer to the petition of the town
of Anaconda to he made the perma
nent capital of the state of Montana
sets forth the following reason why it
(Helena) should he selected as the
permanent capital and why Anacon
da should not, viz.
1st. Helena is located geographic
ally nearly in the center of the state,
while Anaconda is situated In the ex
treme southwestern corner of the
state. Helena can therefore be con
veniently reached from all parts of
the state whereas Anaconda cannot.
2d. Helena is the railroad center
of the state with lines diverging in
every direction. Anacondais laolated
on a spur. One can, therefore, easily
reach or leave Helena by a choice of
several trans-continental routes,
while Anaconda is dependent wholly
on her "spurs."
3d. Helena is situated near the
center of the state's population and
will remain so. Therefore it is and
will continue the moat accessible
point to a very large majority of the
people of the state. Anaconda is as
remote to center of :population as it
is geographically and will grow still
more so as the population of the state
Helena is the geographical center,
the railroad center and the center of
population of the state of Montana.
As to these three essentials for a cap
ital city Anaconda "isn't in it."
4th. Helena is the social, religious
and moral center of the state of Mon
tamn. Here have gathered the best
~i iteats'of society in the state. Here
reside innumerable families with all
the incident ties which tend to purify
the moral atmosphere. Here are
found churches of all denominations
with large and attentive congrega
tins. Here the rising generation
have pure religious surroundings that
the exacting parent so much craves.
Here the typical moral surroundings
prominent in eastern capital cities
are found to an abundant degree.
Anaconda makes no claims to pre
eminence in these essential particu
lars and simply argues that they are
not requisite to a capital city-that
they are eastern notions but no good
in this state.
5th. Helena is the educational cen
ter of the state. Here is as fine a
school system as will be found any
where in the country with teachers
ample and pre-eminently fitted for
their calling. Fine and comnmodious
buildings grace and ornament every
ward in the city. The high school has
few if any equals for architectural
beauty and perfect arrangement.
The higher branches may be pursued
in our excellent university with its
corps of proficient and learned pro
fessors. Here are public libraries
filled with valuable and useful books,
where the young and old may satisfy
their literary cravings. Anaconda
makes no pretentions in these direc
tions. While she has schools to be
sure, they don't come up to the metro
politan standard now demanded in
cities aspiring above the ordinary
village. Anaconda has not, neither
does she crave for fine and commodi
ous school buildings, neither does she
care for such things as public libra
ries. Anaconda is a strictly business
town and is in it to make copper and
when that is done the tale is told.
Helena is the social, religious and
moral center of the state. Analonda
is the copper center of the state and
make-. no claim otherwise. Helena is
the educational center of the state,
with all the concomitants incident
thereto. Anaconda makes no claim
in this line, being satisfied with the
simple rudiments for the young seal
ing to Beleda those of her yeuth who
desire to pursue the higher grades of

The bureau of statistics of the treasury
department has estimated the consump
tion of sugar in the United States for
the year ending June 80, 1894, at
4,843, 209, 500 pounds.
The Sugar trust representatives used
to claim that the cost of refning sugar
was five-eighths cent per pound. Later
they allowed that it cost only one-half
cent, and later still they have acknowl
edged to a cost of only three-eighths
cent per pound to refine sugar.
If we apply these various costs to last
year's oonsomption, we get at the total
cost of refin ,g as follows:
Cost to reSna

U4inWW50....m........ 4 P 7.145.010
4a 3e1* .............4 2 1,171,067
,Uaae,0u ............... % Is.eoe.
We thus find that within the past
year the three varied statements which
have been set forth by the Sugar trust
as to the cost of refining sugar show a
discrepancy of $10,858,085. Which one
are we to believe is the oorreet one? Let
us try to fnd out.
The average weight of a barrel of
sugar may be taken at 882 pounds,
which means a total annual onmsump
tion of 18,868,70 bartels a year in the
United States. If the refineries work o
835 days in each year, it means a daily
output of 41,119 barrels. If they work
only on an average a 800 days yearly,
it means an average daily output at
44 500 barrels of sugar.
It takes 800 men an an average to do
the entire work of redning and deliver.
ing an oUtp:t of 8,000 barrels ot sugar
daily, and thb is a liberal allowance
We thushave atotal of 1,000 me n o
stantly employed throughout the year
to handle an output of 48,000 barrels
If we compare the number of persona
thus employed by the reners with the
total eat of refining sugar, we are en
abled to aoertain their annual wages

Attacks of sunstroke, twing due to heat
Hdone, are not confined to any particular

where a person is exposed to great artftlal
heat. It is a omron~on theory that sun

exposure of the head and spine to the di

the heart is stopped by the effect of the
The symptoms of the real coup de soleill
are unooonsciousness, cold skin, spasmodio
breathing and h feeble pulse. Death usual
ly results from the rapid failure of o.reula

known as heat fever, the symptoms are
gasping for breath, restlessness, thirst and
burning heat of the skin, which is some
times dry, sometimes moist. In almost
every case of sunstroke the head, face and
neck become livid, and there is contraction
of pupils of the eyes.
The premonitory symptoms of insola

times days before the attack proper take
place. These symptoms are often restess
am, sleeplesness, giddness, leadamh,
nausea and thirst.
The attack is more likely to oeuor on
the second or third day of a heated ters

For 10 years Hugh Markleham had.a

Financially speaking, he had been
ful, but for all that period of time he bh
been literally homeless. Now he was_

"The fist oad totheleft beyond y_

self, 'and the first hboe. The dlrectS.

And he repooketed his memoand
book, wherein Mr. Momeibbs, the boh
agent, had jotted down sundry items
girding his new purchase.
He paused half hesitatingly in froat -
a low wioket gate, hanging by one hlt,
from which a shrub grown path werry

story dwelling.
"Nonsenset" he muttered to hinmer
'"it can't be that shed of a place. 'Ade ,

He swung open thegilded iron gate at
pretty little inclosure, where the gravs
paths shone whitely in the twilight at

and there a rustle aeat of twistedi cde

Mr. Markleham leaned luxuriously bs

As Mr. Markleham sat there, b
