Special to the NEW NORTWREST.
A--NACONDA, January 16.
The NEWv NOR5'I\iWST is in a position
to announce positively that a new opera
house will be built in Anaconda early
next spring. For several seasons past
the question of a new opera house in
this city has been agitated. On different
occasions it appeared that a building
suitable for amusement purposes would
be elected immediately. Each time
these arranllemelts failed before corn
pletion. Thle spring of the capital elec
tion plans were drawn for a magnificent
structure to stand on the corner o!pposite
the Standard building on lMain street.
Subsequently, however, tile proposition
was dropped for that year. it was re
vived again last spring and the matter
seemed on the point of taking definite
shape, when once more solriethillg rc.
curred to interfere with the arrangement
and Anaconda was compelsled to go o an
other year without a sulitable theatre.
There seemns no resasonl to doubt that
now, however, lhe city is to have at first
class theatre uind that the worl' of con
struction will begin early next spring.
This much may be announced at this
time as a positive fact: Th:t new plans
for a commllodious .un a very handsoIume
theatre have recently been drawn, ar
rangelnentsa have ben comnlplete for the
site and iids will be asked for within 90)
days. This will be in the nature of glad
tidings to the people of the Copper City.
The present opera house is one of the
worst to be foundl in any city of this size
in the United States. The building is
tshabby and it has none of the attractive
ness of a theatre. The stage is small und
the appointments are miserable. While
tile arrangements have not, of coiurse,
been definitely made it is reasonable to
rassume thalt Jlohn IMaguire will maunage
tlihe inew plance of amusement.
The f Sact that the NF:w NniTririrwsi;sr
was thie first newspapter to allnoulrnc (o
the public the preparations that are
rmaking for the constructioni of a new
smelting plant of mamtmnoth proportions
in the city ofr Anacondla next spring has
givenl suoure alleged newslpaper mens inL
this neck of tihe woods the jirn jams. A
sheet that is published after dark ill this
city about once a fortnight feels very
b:adly because it hals been left irl this im
portant item of news. It whines out a
pitiful tSale of \woe abiout the manner in
which its field is being occrupied by the
NEi- w No R'lir-V- i -r. It says that the An
atcounda ciulmny is not in the habit of
taking newspaplers into its conrfidenice
and therefore the Nisw o.NIuii- wrsn
could not have gotten the inside facts
concerning the new smelter. In the
next sentence the journalistic pimple
announces that it is in i position tor know\\o
positively that the Anaconda company
Ihas nothing whatever to do with the pro
posed new smelter. The reading public
will be interested in knowing that while
the Anacondal company does not take
newspapers into its confidence that there
is a little sheet published in Anaconda
every once in a while that is right on the
inside. Tihe Standard, of course, cannot
get at tile facts at all. Thle mouthpiece
of the Anaconda company is the degen
erate offspring of the late lamlented Re
view. Nevertheless the facts remain
before the public of this city that the
NEw Norrs'niWESrT, published e 0 miles
from the city of Anaconda, was the first
newspaper to annuolnce the news con
cerning the proposed new smelter. The
statement is here repeated, in all candor,
that the contract has been let for tile
construction of eight miles and a half'of
railroadto run alongthe south side of the
canyon in which this city is situated; that
the work of construction will begin as
soon as the snow leaves the ground; that
Toole & Twohy, the contractors of this
city, have been awarded the contract;
that the road is being built out of the net
earnings of the B. A. & P. railroad; that
a new smelter of very large proportions
will be built not far from the Tuttle
foundry next summer; that the machin
ery is now being ordered for the new
plant; that men interested in the Ana
conda company are also interested in this
new enterprise; that the smelter, which
it is intended to build, will add at least
700 men to the pay-roll of this city within
the next 12 months; that the ores of some
of the mines of the Camp Creek district,
as well as the ores of the Washoe and
Poulin mines of Butte, will be brought
to this city to be treated at the new
smelter; that the new works will receive
custom ore in large quantities from many
points in the state of Montana; that the
machinery in the institution will be
modelled upon the latest and most im
proved plan, and that when completed
the new plant will be one of the flinest.
smelters of its size in the world. This
is a bit of news which is important
enough to the citizens of the city of An
aconda, and all' of the regions round
about the Copper City, to be given to the
public. This newspaper is in no manner
on the inside. It does not make any
pretense towards having the confidence
of the Anaconda comparny or any of the
Anacondat comnpany's agents. Whatever
the N .-:w No-truiiirEST linds out it picks
uip ion the outside. It has not had the
good fortune to be namnedI as the special
moullthpiece of the Anaconlda companlllry,
or of tany of the mlen connlrlected with tlhe'
Anarcoinda compan y. It is in the field to
give the news as it is picked rip ill tnhese
regions and it proposes to do it. That is
siwhy the people like to take this paper.

Thie managing editor goes llup stairs and
the editorial room' s oil the second hloor
will be litted upl in splendid style. Every
good citizen in Anaconda delights to note
the progress of the Standard. This city
ihas been singularly benefited by thie es
tablishment of that splendid ne'wspaper
nearly seven years ago. It is within tile
iimemnory of hundredts of irni living lhere
still when tihe prediction was freely made
thatl the Standa:rd was bulit i (nlcampaign

at that time, and it lhas illedt it with "ad

Today it stands by conmmonl consent far at
the head of tile journalistic procession in
the entire nortllwest country. Its piay
roll alone is a lmaterial advantage to tlhe
city in which it is published. The mens
whio find profitablle employmnent witlhin
tihe Standatrd's building are an important
feature in the communercial and social life
of this city. In both its editorial and
business management the Standard com
mands public respect; the success of this
newspaper enterprise has been marvelous
from the beginning. It stands today as a
monument to tihe earnest labors, the in
dustry, the ability and the sagacity of the
men who have been intrusted with its atf
fairs. The Standard is all right. Ana
conda is proud of it. Every little im
provement is noted by the citizens of the
Copper City with pleasure and with pride.
It is no exaggeration to state that tile
leap year ball which was given at the
Montana hotel last Friday was one of the
most delightful social events that Ana
conda has enjoyed in many a day. The
attendance was large. The ladies took
entire charge of the entertainment. They
received their guests and entertained
them in a royal manner. Many of the
costumes worn by the ladies were un
usually elegant, and the music was ex
ceptionally good. It is to be hoped that
leap year will bring many events of a
similar nature. The gentlemen of this
city are looking forward to the next in
vitation from their lady friends with a
great deal of pleasurable anticipation.
During the latter part of last week
County Treasurer D. F. Hallahan, County
Auditor George 8. Miller, Clerk and Re
corder John B. Fisher, and other dis
tinguished gentlemen from Deer Lodge
paid a visit to Anaconda. There was a
rumor out that Mr. Fisher was fixing up
his fences for the nomination for gov
ernor next fall, but the gentleman him
self denied it and stated to a reporter
for this newspaper that the story origin
ated in the fact that he was wearing a
grin because of a recent arrival at his
home in the county seat. Mr. Fisher
will ask the county commissioners to
place John B. Jr. upon the pay roll.

The local press report Mrs. Mabel 1B
Conrad's loss by fire last week in Helena
of a quantity of silver plate that was

at $25,000, iand which was not insured.
"Oh, my ear full of blue mud," remarked
an old-time watchmaker and jeweler
of Virginia City. "There is no such
amount of silver plate in the whole juris
diction of all the blankety-blank report
ers, and I'll venture a few cart-wheels
that no jewelry firm in this prosperous
state carries that amount in stock." And
he wound up by declaring that it was a
shame that an ordinary citizen should
encroach upon the sacred copy-rights of
our crafty stage beauties.-Madisonitan.
