New York Sun, April 17, 1888. A union of boisterous mirth and old fash ioned melodrama was accomplished with en tire success last night at Third Avenue The atre. The result was made possible by the well directed efforts of a dozen actors and actresses who had been selected with a view to individual ability, and yet had been grouped so that the entertainment became harmonious, if now and then exaggerated. The vehicle for this unusual achievement was "A Chip O' the Old Block," from the pen of Herbert Hall Winslow, a young au thor, and one of promise. He has retained the accepted forms or melodrama while de parting from the conventionality of bur lesque, and between the two the night pass ed quickly and enjoyable. The Chip was an old salt who had seen service, spiked guns, spilled buckets of blood, and then talked about It all the rest of his days. He figured as the protector of the melodramatic lost child, who had to dance and sing constantly, in order to keep her spirits under the indefatigable pursuit of the genteel villain; in the end she triumphed because she was pert, pretty, plucky, and on the correct side of the law. Briskness marked all the comedy, and ap propriateness was a feature of the musical trimmings. Mr. Robert L. Scott, a droll and original comedian, who talks and winks like Lester Wallack, was the Chip, and Mr. Harry Mille was equally acceptable as the _orsey young man who loved the heroine, and wedded her with the Chip's blessing. The performance was smooth and spirited. Nothing better in its line bhas been seen this season. BRICK FOE BALE.

See notice of Mountain Lion stockholders meeting in this issue. The meeting is an important one, and it is desirable all stock should be represented. Holders unable to attend should send their proxys to some one to represent them. Col. Hawkins, of Tennessee, who came bere from Butte recently, delivered an ad. dress at the Court bouse, Wednesday even ing, on "England and America", but we were unavoidably absent and have no notes. The Colonel bears the reputation of being an eloquent orator. "Autumn Leaves" is the title of a hand some publication compiled by Major Robert C. Walker and issued in newspaper form, giving descriptive and statistical information concerning Helena and her resources. What ever the Major does he does well, and "Au tumn Leaves" is no exception.

The stone, brick, car penter and plaster work is done, and the painters will be through in a day or two, The heaters are not yet in, but President McMillan has assurance the mediid ith aer- ial will be here in a few days. It is a splen did building and will be of great benefit. We were informed last evening that papers had been drawn conveying the Deerwood, Kate, Bonanza, and Park lodes, from J. M. Ellis and J. A. Brent of Anaconda, to three capitalists of St. Paul, for a consideration of 150,000. The property is in granite forma tion, about six miles south of Anaconda. Our informant stated that work would be commenced immediately developing the mine. The name of the organization is the Deerwood Consolidated Mining and Milling Company. Mr. 8. E. Larabie sbowed us this week the plans of a twelve-room, two and a balf story residence, which with some interior changes, he contemplates erecting in the spring on the site of his present residence. It will be one of the handsomest, If not the handsom est, house in Montana, although not as ex pensive as some others-probably costing 16,000 to 818,000, The design is the same generally as one now in course of construc tion in Minneapolis, the first one of that de sign built, and is the perfect picture of a beautiful home. We shall be very glad if he shall speedily come to a final conclusion to bauild, as we had feared a place nearer the sea had its attractions for Mr. and Mrs. Lar abie, and we would greatly regret their leaving Montana. We have lost too many old friends as it is. Charlie Aspling, candidate for Clerk and Recorder, came into town Sunday, and learning bhis competitor, Will Furay, was ill and confined to his room, called on him and proffered his services to remain and take care of him until recovery. Mr. Furay im mediately responded that nothing of the kind should be done, and that Mr. Aspling sbould not be in town without proper courte sy and attention being shown. So he there apongot up, bundled himself in overcoat and wraps and accompanied Mr. Aspling down town, where they put in the remainder of the day, each introducing the other to his personal friends as a worthy and excellent gentleman whom it was his privilege to commend to their kndest consideration, and seeing who could first settle with the gentle manly auditor of accounts behind the tim ber for cigars, Apollinaris water and such etceteras as the circumstances required. Thus raged the conflict between the two candidates, and it is safe to say they both made friends and neither lost votes by their courtesy. It was something unmque in the way of electioneering. FIR3 IN HELENA. It is Estimated the Los Will Be S100,o00.

Within the past ten days there have been numerous Republican speeches made in Deer Lodge county-Carter, Knowles and Joslyn at Deer Lodge; Carter and Thompson, at Philipsburg and Granite; Carter, Thomp son, Joslyn and Facer at Elliston; McCutch eon, Calloway, Thompson and Titus at Deer Lodge; and McCutcheon and Calloway at Philipsburg and Granite. It is impossible to even summarise in a weekly paper the eloquent and convincing arguments of the gentlemen, or to describe the enthusiasm and good feeling that characterized the au diences, and we can but refer to them briefly. What we heard of Mr. Carter's speech here indicated it was a magnificent effort superior in the convincing presentation of facts and in oratorical graces to that deliv ered at the grand demonstration in Helena. Coming s comparative stranger to many of our people, he made a most favorable im pression upon all. Even as statistical and business like subject as the tariff was so pre sented in its effects as proven by history and inevitable in its results upon the lives and conditions of the people as to give it personal interest and pathos. Mr. Carter demon strated to our people his thorough historic and personal knowledge of the great tariff issue, his acute perception of its influence upon the industries and welfare of Monta~a, his capacity to comprehend and coma legislation hostile thereto, and his a zeal and energy to adveets all that benefi their .ideditiea. l eept breaksing hiIn rea alive applas the immense audience stood for nearly two homes in a s4iea. tense .and aeeroen the epeskese s aereabove a whisper many times W tinotly audible to the farthest limits ball, andms his periods roundqe to a finish the response would be a deafening round of plaudits. Mr. Carter spoke to as fine an an. dience as was ever assembled in Deer Lodge, and he would be the more gratified, if he knew, by comparison, how intensely he held it and how earnest was its approval. As he concluded, "three cheers for Thos. H. Car ter, our next Delegate in Congress," were given with a will. Judge Knowles followed, but as the hour was 11, and many persons had stood the en tire evening, he spoke but a short time. He put Mr. Clark on the rack for intimidating voters in Silver Bow county, and suggested by implication that the government ought to make a reservation of Mr. Word and set him apart as a semi-annual mud-geyser. Mr. Carter went hence to Granite and Philipsburg, where he had splendid meet ings, and at the latter place was assisted by Mr. Wm. M. Thompson, candidate for Conun cil. At Garrison, on their return, they were met by a delegation from Deer Lodge, accom panied by the German Band, and went up to Elliston, where a large number of miners mill men and timbermen had come in from the surrounding country, and where brief addresses were delivered by Messrs. Carter, Thompson, Joslyn and Wm. Facer, of Gar rison, and a very enjoyable occasion was had. On Monday evening last Hon. Isaac D. McCutcheon, of Helena, formerly Secretary of Montana, and Col. James E. Calloway, of Virginia, also for many years Secretary of Montana, Mr. Thompson, candidate for the Council, and H. F. Titus, Esq., candidate for County Attorney, addressed a good an dience at Cottonwood Hall. The address of Mr. McCutcheon was an able, historical and analytical discussion of the tariff question, proving the incalculable injury the reduc tion of the tariff had worked in bringing financial disaster on the country, and show ing by incontrovertible statistics the present movement of the Democratic party toward free trade was the most dangerous that had ever been attempted, and must inevitably result in the ruin of American industries, i'educe American wages to a par with the illy paid labor of Europe, wrest from our millions of now happy and prosperous work ipgmen the margin of better wages that en bles them to have the comforts and many of the luxuries of life, and revert many of them to the conditions from which they fled be yond the sea to find free institutions and better recompense for their toil in this land of promise and fulfillment, the Great Re public of the United States. He showed that there was practically no "raw material" except the ores and the coal in our mines, and the forests on our mountains, that whenever they were taken therefrom the "labor" expended upon them was what prin cipally gave them their value, but the theory of the Mills bill was to ignore this labor and to treat all products as raw material and free until it was ready for the last touch of skill. ed labor or manufacture. It was a masterly speech, interrupted by frequent and pro longed applause, and when he took up Mr. Word's Anaconda recitation about the tariff on certain articles in everyday use, he simply sunhstituted the word "imported" for the tariff rate, and buried Mr. Word in an "imported grave, under an imported headstone, with an imported epitaph in the hope of a glori ous immortality in an imported heaven" and the rest could not be heard for the roars of applause. Col. Calloway, who was suffering much physieal pain from his borse having fallen on him a few days before, was compelled by reason thereof to make but a short address, and deflected from the usual line of argu mentto briefly impress upon the younger men of the audience the lesson of the present attempt to degrade labor by reducing its requital from a standard that gave the chil dren of workingmen opportunity to have good educations and attain the highest posi tions in the land, back to one where it was a struggle for existence, where poverty sets its barrier in their way, and the conditions and surroundings were such as he bad seen it among the poor whites where he was born and raised during the days of slavery in the South. There labor was not regarded honor able, and he warned the young especially to study the history of these things and not assist in re-establishing a condition that would reduce wages to those paid the field hands of the Soatb, where this sectional Mills bill had its origin and strong support. Col. Calloway is a fine speaker, and it was regretted be was not physically able to speak longer and elaborate the lesson the outhnes of which he stated. Mr. Thompson, candidate for the Council. in response to repeated calls, followed with a shortspeech. It was to some extent a personal statement regarding a matter re verted to elsewhere, which was treated in a frank, manly way, giving a thorough and satisfactory exposition of the entire matter without an unkind word against any person, and winning for him the esteem of all his hearers. He followed, after a commenla tion of the county ticket, with a logical, thoroughly well informed, business like statement of the existing conditions of American workingmeh under the present law, and that proposed by the Senate bill, in contradistinction to what would exist under the Mills bill, and advised his bearers to hold fast that which is good and resist ap proval by their votes of the ruinous free trade heresy inculcated and given foothold by the Mills bill. Mr. Thompson is one of the most intelligent men we know, is a close reasoner, has a perfect command of lan guage, and while not striving for oratorical effects, made one of the best speeches we have heard. If he is elected, which we have no doubt he will be, we venture the predic tion that Deer Lodge county will bhave the ablest and most useful member in the Terri torial Council. Succeeding Mr. Thompson the audience demanded vociferously a speech from H. F. Titus, Esq., candidate for County Attorney, and in response got one of the most bril liant and heartily enjoyed speeches deliveredl here this campaign, riding with a free lance against Clark, Cleveland, the Mills bill and the enemy generally, and making "points" every time. One of the good ones was the Thurman-Smith-et al. claim that the term tartiff was derived from the island of Tarifa, whence a buccaneer used to put forth and levy tribute on the merchantmen of the Mediterranean. The inference was that col on of tariff duties was a buccaneering i ees, but the very neax moment they re claiming that the Repubbean tariff was per cent., and the Mills bill tariff was 42 r cent., so that the beat they could make it was that the Democrats proposed to only a per cent. lees of buccaneer bute thas the Republicans-hardly a per tage of alleged honesty they need make much fuss about as there was anyhow a discount on Democratic pretensions. r. Titus made a splendid speeoch of fifteen or twenty minutes length, and it was with regrets the audience heard him say "good night." He is a bright young man, and is destined to win eminence in his profession. lils election will result in securing a good attorney for Deer Lodge county. National Sargtes Inastitute. Two or more surgeons representing this institute will be at the MeBurney House, Deer Ledge, Dec. 7th, and at the Continental Hotel, Butte City, Dec. 8th, 1888. They come fully prepared with all the ap paratus necessary for the successful treat ment of their specialties, curative of the spine, diseases, of the hip and knee joint, crooked limbs, club feet and all bodily de formities. Their success in treating these troubles as well as all chronic and sexual diseases has made for the Institute a national reputation. Upon application, references will be fur itbhed from patients in all parts of the who are suffering from any of should not -ail1 to take ad biopportuaitr rseleL 1002t* saui the sgqt Salk of on the 80th . it., having Sa little over four weeks. bering this time a great deal of business was done, yet in one sense it looks as though the docket was barely touched. At the begin niug of the term the grand jury returned a number of indictments, and these indict m~nts necessarily having precedence of civil causes, the docket was unavoidably disar ranged. These criminal cases being scatter ed through the term, produce confusion. See what consequences a little difficulty over very small matters between neighbors will produce. One person hauling lumber and having a bad road, lays down the fence of his neighbor and goes through his field. The party is prosecuted for willful and ma lacious trespass, and is acquitted. Then the other party is indicted for obliterating a no tice of an application for a highway posted by the party desiring the road. This occu pied two or three days of the April term of Court, and the jury did not agree. Out of the trial of this case grow five indictments for perjury. The case for obliterating the hotice comes over to the present term for re trial, and two or three days is consumed. A slander suit also grows out of the oblitera tion of the notice, and three or four days more is taken up with its trial, the result of which was the same as the traditional mountain in labor. About four days more is taken up in trying two of the perjury cases; result, nil. The costs to the parties, to the county, indirectly to other litigants having cases in Court, and indirectly to the county, will amount into the thousands of dollars, and all because of some little, insignificant neighborhood difficulty in which no person has any interest other than the parties con cerned. Squabbles lihke these should act block and occupy the time of the District Court. A large docket is left to go over to the next term, with many important civil causes which have been set for trial for two or three terms, and which involve important rights that ought to be settled. But can these civil causes be tried then? There are two important criminal cases continued from this term that will occupy at least one week of the next term. There are already in jail two prisoners awaiting the action of the grand jury, and these must consume at least two or three days, and, as history repeats itself, by the next term of Court we will have on hands in all probability enough' criminals to consume almost the entire period of Court. The question is, is there a remedy? Judge beWolfe is a pleasant and accommodating gentleman, and while it is best never to ride a horse to death, could he not when the Supreme Court meets give us an extra term to be devoted exclusively to the trial of civil causes. Our county is growing rapidly in 'population, and property and litigation is on the increase, so that it seems absolutely nec essary that something should be done, if possible, to give relief. We know it is diffi cult under the Territorial Government, but still we think it possible. One great trouble and injury caused by this clogging of the docket of the District Court is, that many people will and do sacrifice their rights before undertaking to enforce them in the courts. If they bring suit be fore a Justice of the Peace and there is any show for a defense of any kind, the case is tried and appealed to the District Court, where it remains for a year or so. The same result happens when the suit is brought In the District Court. The case will be gotten at issue perhaps the first term, and then per japs two more terms will elapse before it can be brought to trial. Men would rather lose their rights than suffer such annoyance. Besides, it is aconstant drain on their pock ets. For instance, there is a suit originating near Blackfoot concerning a water right, which has been set for trial twice at the two last terms, and still is not tried. We under stand the cash costs in this case amount to over one thousand dollars each time. Such a state or affairs ought not to exist. The case of the Territory of Montana against Cornelius D. Sullivan, for an assault upon John Mays at Mullan Tunnel, with in tent to kill, was continued until the next term, on account of the absence of witnesses for the defense; and the case against Augus tus Johnson, for the murder of Carlson, at .Anaconda, was also continued on account of the short time given the attorney for the de fendant to prepare the case for trial. A new trial was granted in the case of Wil liam Kelley against the Cable Company. This case was brought some few years ago, nd our readers are familiar with the details. The case was tried at the last term and a ver diqt given for the plaintiff for $10,000. The codrt thought there was no negligence on the part of defendant or its agents, and that the accident from which plaintiff received Tlis injuries was incident to the work in which plaintiff was engaged, and hence a new trial was granted.

This is the last term of the court in which D. M. Durfee, Esq., will officiate as County Attorney. He has made a faithful and effi cient officer, and deserves the plaudit of "well done, good and faithful servant."

From Athens Here to Athens, Tennessee. Mr. and Mrs. E. 8. Stackpole and children left Tuesday evening for Athens, East Ten nessee, where they expect to make taeir future home. A large number of friends anied them to the depot to say good -e by.e t Deer Lodge parts with them. To the old-time the separation, of a family that has lived happily together for a score of years. Mrs. Stackpole was, as one might say, raised here, -at least here her happiest girlhood days were spent in the infancy of the town ; and when Mr. Stackpole came here from Vir ginia City and Red Mountain in '73, or there about, he wooed and won her. Here they have made their home, and about their hearthstone five bright children have come to make home blessed. They have always been a part of the best social life of our little town, and in their domestic lives its models. We who remain feel their departure keenly as do they, for they had kindred and many and warm friendships here, and the parting was something they would have liked some one else to do. But five years ago a business disaster to a Butte drug house, in which Mr. Stackpole was a one-third partner, left a debt of $18,000 hanging over him. It was a mountain on his shoulders at his age, with a large family, and although he set about it heroically, the way seemed long and rugged when be could be free again. Within the past year or two be has had promising oppor tunities offered in Tennessee. He did not see so clearly then as be has since his way through by remaining here, and decided to remove there ; but the day preceding his de parture be paid the last legal obligation he owed in the world, and with a light purse, but with a lighter heart, has gone to make his new home, with cheering prospects, "'way down in Tennessee." We all wish him and his estimable wife prosperity; we know they will have a happy home,wherever it may be. Mr. Stackpole will be missed in business circles, as his wife will in social, but especially will the Masonic fraternity, of which he was Past Grand Master in Montana, feel his loss. He has been identified with Deer Lodge No. 14 for fifteen years, and with the Royal Arch Chapter since its organiza. tion. He has ever been one of the pillars of Masonry in the community, and one of the pleasant surprises to him at the last meeting of Deer Lodge No. 14, was the presentation of a series of handsomely engrossed resolu tions, testifying its regard, which any man might be proud to own.

A CAMPAIGN SHEET. " Methinks He Doth Protest Too Much." Deer Lodge county is deluged the past day or two with a nondescript sheet that with becoming diffidence acknowledges not its parentage or the place of its birth and under the title "Issue of the Day," contains a con siderable portion of the "dead matter" of the Miner for several weeks forked together and interspersed with original "whoop up" puffs of from one to three lines, for candidates on the Democratic ticket in Deer Lodge. The effect of these paragraphic invocations to the voters of Deer Lodge to "vote for John Doe, the double-breasted, three ply, Jacksonian Democrat for Road Supervisor of District No. 111i," must certainly exert a powerful influence on the minds of intelligent men, and constitute about the heaviest campaign logic that has appeared in the Democratic press this season. They are almost equal to the recipes in a cook book for campaign purposes. But this is not all-not near all-only the "chinking" to fill in around and afford an excuse for four solid columns of historical, hysterical, statistical, biographic and geo graphical gaffabout the candidates on the county Democratic ticket, giving a glowing account in fulsome superlatives of their lives, adventures and virtues that will make the world weep to see that the Democratic ticket of Deer Lodge county, Montana, has monopohlized all the good men in America, and that a spread eagle biographer has dis counted the future and done them up for campaign purposes in a stle that would be more appropriate when they shall have ceased to linger in this sinful world. The artist should have accompanied these puffs with a diagram and a high color sketch showing these saintly candidates sitting in a row on the branch of a willow tree with an aureola of glory about their heads, a crescent moon behind them, a celestial harp hung by a blue ribbon over each of their several shoulders, and a tag inscribed in big letters, "This is a Democratic Saint," attached to each particular one. There are some excel lent men and an estimable lady named on the Democratic ticket of this county, but if they lose votes by the fulsome flatteries of the nondescript sheet it will be nothing more than could be reasonably expected. The voters of this county are men of prac tical sense, and vote for candidates on their merits. Vote the Republican ticket straight. NOTICE. NOTICE.

As mentioned in a Itne or two last week, the Champion Consolidated Mining Com pany has struck a fine body of ore in the 20 foot cross-cut. There is about three feet of solid high-grade ore, assays of which have gone to 615 ounces silver and $30 gold, and five feet more of low-grade ore. The vein is 12 feet between walls. It looks solid and strong as far as developed, and stock has gone from 10 to 25 cents, with more demand than supply. Ed. Mills is the happiest man in town. A level is now being run west ward, and is looking first rate. Develop meat will continue on that level. It looks as if the champion ,'has it" sure. It can't be too good, Ed., to suit Deer Lodge.

Owings was at Avon last Friday, he was informed that diphtheria ex isted in a wood camp in a-golch a half mile from what is known as "the Wood Spur," some two or three miles this side of Mullan Tunnel, that some children had died and others were ill, and that the people were in very destitute circumstances. Mr. Henry S. Neal, who happened along, volunteered to go with Dr. Owings, and together they vis ited the place. They found three cabins in close proximity. One is occupied by John A. Blockerby, who is suffering from Bright's disease of the kidneys, and was in St. Joseph's Hospital, Deer Lodge, until some two or three weeks ago. Two of his sons, Frank, aged 7 years, and Bertie, aged 2 years, had died of diphtheria, and three more children were sick. In the next cabin, that of L. Bugby, one daughter, aged 12 or 13, had diphtheria, and there were two younger children in the family. In the third cabin was a child which had not yet taken it. All these cabins have dirt roofs and floors and the people are very poor. Messrs. Burns & Martin, and other good people of Elliston, had sent up by Mr. Neal such things as would be most needed, and they were well provided for. Dr. Owings treated the patients and promised to return later in the week, which he did Tuesday. Mr. Neal reached Commissioner Walker at Anaconda by wire from Elliston Saturday, and was in structed to do all that was necessary in pro. viding the families with attention, food and other necessaries, and they are doubtless as well provided for as possible. One man, whose name we did not learn, in asking Dr. Owings to go and look after these cases, handed him $15, saying it was all the money he had or he would offer more. There is so rarely a case of destitution in Montana that it startles one. and all the money required tc make the people comfortable could be raised in ten minutes, but as the county has taken the matter in charge, it is just as well. Dr. Owings has received information the third child of Mr. and Mrs. Blockerby, a giri aged 10 years, died on the 30th of October, and that the others are better. He again vis ited them yesterday. FOREST GRoVE, Oregon, March 8. I have been troubled many years with weakness of the kidneys, and have tried many different remedies, sought aid from different physicians and even changed cli mates to obtain relief, but have met with in dli.ferent success. Hearintg through a friend of the value of the Oregon Kidney Tea, I obtained a box of it and have derived more benefit from it than from anything else I have yet found. J. T. HUFF.

About the first of last week an express package containing 8280 was stolen from the office of the Pacific Express Company, at Garrison. The money was waiting at that place to be transferred to the N. P. Express Co., and was missed the next morning after it was stolen. At first it was impossible for the officers of the company to get any clue as to who took the package. But it appears that a day or so after the package was taken George Peters, a young man in the employ of the company as a night clerk at Garrison, came to Deer Lodge, and while here spent a good deal of money. At one time he left almost the amount contained in the package with another person, and drew on it as he desired its use. And he also told the person that it was the money taken from the com pany's safe at Garrison, and how be bhad Smanaged the job. It was well known that Peters had no money of his own. And this is how it came about that Peters was arres i ted, charged with the crime, and on a pre Sliminary hearing before Probate Judge Em erson last Monday, was held in the sum of 51,500 to await the action of the next Grand Jury. Peters is a lne.looking young man and socially well-connected. It is pitiful that he should make a wreck of a life that might otherwise have been useful.
