UNION !!1 EDITORIAL The signs of the time are for a greater effort al along the line to improve in our efforts to Do Something, and have something The efficiency of the Great Western University is very ap parent not only to us but to all Helena. The remarkable pro press of one of our own in the short space of time which she has been away stands for more than all the lectures and adver tiseemnts that can be given or written. The efforts of many of our people to take a chance for the opening in the Flathead and journeying hence is commend able, we hope they all draw claims and locate upon them. Some of our young men are of the opinion that they can play both sides of the social scale but in this they are sadly mistaken as their sins will sure ly find them out. Register of the Treasury, Prof W. T. Vernor, has been assur ed of his retention in that posi tion for the next four years, and if merit stands for anything no one can gainsay the registed is deserving of this honor. lie has certainly been a live wire in his environment, at al times up and doing something for the up lift of the race. Under the present order of things it is easy sailing for the man who can get by without visible means of support. The debate at St. James Church last Wednesday wa:s highly interesting, the proposi tion of Jim Crowism was thrash ed out, Mr. Arthur Ford made his debut as a debator and was a credit and the old line debat ers must look well to their laur els, his is quick to see a point, his side won the dciiate. But for all that it is known fact that Jim Crowism is fast reaching his tecnacles, and will in time, claim all America. We Say if it has to come the quick er the better; the sooner that our people realize this the more business will develop amongst I them and if they fail to appre ciate the good point of building their own enterprises Jis Crow will force them to do it and per haps it is all Building better than we know. Miss Alta Holbert of Anacon da returned to her home last week from Western University at which institution she is taking a musical and literary course. She is one of the brightest uni versity students and her parent W. T. Holbert, is entitled to great credit for the sacrifice which he is making in giving to Miss Alta that opportunity. But he is a thorough race man and stands at all times for the up lift of the race and patronizes ther interprises. BIRTHDAY PARTY AT THE I t DAM Miss Pearl Palmer on last Thursday was the leading spirit in getting up one of the most entertaining and enjoyable par ties which has ever journeyed from Helena to the Missouri river to the side of the dam. The event was in honor of the thirty seventh anniversay of her brother Arthur, and a large par ty, thirty six in number put in a day for pure entertainment and sport that cannot be ex celled, the party arrived at the dam about 12 m, and immedia tely the big spread was put on and such a feast, it was all the good things that could be men tioned after which the fishing boat rowing, dancing and ect. was indulged in, the music being furnished by Messrs Holland Saulsburg and Miss Alma Bass The only thing that happened to in any was molest the pleasure of the day was the narrow es cape of W. Ml. Hfolland from drowning. While out rowing he got too near the current that is formed from the water going over the dam and would have went down and to his death had not the uprights been there and as the boat lodged against them he crawled out on the bridge. The following per sons were in the party. Rev. and Mrs. treenlea. \li'scs \1. Johnson. I.. Riley. Pearl Palmer Fannie litzgerald, Xlary I rown J. Ilrov.n. Xlesdames \\. Irvin, Green. II.

The Club has been thurOuglhly re novated and 'ari u, improve ments installed, it will he kept up to date in every respect and our people are to be congratu lated on having such a highly creditable place to spend a leis tire hour. MILLIONS SEEING THIS GREAT SHOW The Combined Hangenbeck Ani mal Show and the Wallace Circus are popular Of all the auxiliary attractions at any of the several world's fairs, the first place in impor tance has always been accorded the Carl Ilagenbeck Trained Animal Show. It is estimated that more than two million peo ple visited this show during the fairs at Chicago and St. Louis and these two million people have never forgotten the unu sual and most remarkable acts perfomed by the brute actors, and are constatly urging their friends to see the Hagenbeck trained animals at their first op portunity. Not every one could go to the great world's fairs, but since the Ilagenbeck animal show has combined with the Great Wall ace Shows the tour has been pie in an iron ring. Since the shows have been comlbined, the performances of each is given comnplete and without interfer ing with the other, and the pa tron, can readily see that in this advertised combination the facts warrant the claim. The Carl I 1-igenheck-Wallace Combined Shows will appear in Ielena for two performances on June 25. CABIN PARTY Mr. and Mrs. J. L.
