of our national flag always bring
forth an expression of true patriotism
that nothing else can, and the colors,
lied, White and Blue, are always beau
tiful to an American eve. But these are
only a few of the many beautiful colors
that are found in the Sherwin &t Williams
paints, which have made beautiful so
many homes, and are always the pride of
a true housewife, But beauty and fra
grance go hand in hand. This was shown
biy the great rush of last week for those
free samples of Palmer's perfume which
we were giving away, and the great sale
of perfumes that followed the giving
away of these samples. We carry the

ANACONDA, Mlarch 11.-Annie Singlaub
of this city is suing Caspar Singlaub, her
husband, for a divorce. The suit has
been instituted in Deer Lodge. The
complaint which Annie has filed,tlirough
her attorney J. H. Duffy, goes on to tell
how they were married in the city of
Anaconda in 1889, and how for the past
two or three years at their home in this
city her 'husband has continually sub
jected her to the mnost scandalous cruel
ties. She says Casper is a nasty, mean
thing; that upon repeated occasions lihe
has called her vile names and accused
lher of having sustained improper rela
tions with one John Nicholson, anld also
with several other men. All these accu
sattions are positively denied by Mrs.
Singlaub. She says they are false and
unjust, and that they have caused her in
tense mental suffering and great anguish
and more than her share of pain. Shed
asks the court to cut the knot that ties
her to Caspar. John Nicholson, the man
whose name has appeared in connection
with this case, is on the warplth too. lie
says Singlaub lies and is an infernal ras
cal. lie says that he never lhad anything
to do with the woman; that he knows
her, having worked in the neighborlhood
where the Singlaubs reside, but that he
has never been on intimate terms with
the woman. Nicholson says that if Sing
laub does not walk in a straighter course
hereafter, and if he persists in making
accusations of a serious character eagatinst
parties who are innocent, thait something
is liable to happen which will dissolve
the bonds of matrimony lbetween IMr. and
Mrs. Singlaub before tie district court
lehas a chance to act ulpon the matter.
Tihe news first announced in these col
umus that Con Hayes, the lessee of
Gregson springs, intends to erect e splen
did hotel and natatoriulm at that popular
resort this summer is received with a
good deal of approval in this city. Arch
itect Lane has drawn tie plans for tihe
proposed improvements at the springs,
andl thle work of construction will comn
mience early in tihe sprin. Tihe plan is
to, erect a hotel with 50 rooms sand a
plunge bath -10 by 100 feet. All the
buildings will be heatled lby' hot water
from tle springs 'nolt will contain every
modern convenience. People in this
part of tie country have long wished to
see somlething done toweards makllting
Gregison springs mlore attractive tas a
health resort. The water is unquestion
•ably the best in this part of the world. It
is a delightful place for persons to recun
perate and rest, and ucnder Mr. Ilayes'
manlalegement it tpromises to becomiee very
popula'r with Anacondc a peeople. Mr.
Ilayes has a lease, runnillg for tel years,
with a bond upon the property. The
probabilities are that lie will peurc:lhase tihe
entire property before the lease expires.
In the meantinme Anaconda is glad
to learn of the contemtplated ilmprove
John Cuffe, thie police ollicer who was
charged with assault in the second de
gree upon the person of CT. . WlWalsh, at
torney, has been bound over to anlswer to
the district court. This is a case which
has attracted a good deal of attention in
this city, and it has been dragging along
for some weeks. Tlhe witness Smith, or
Comboy, who testified that he was in
the cell in the city jail at the time that
Cuffe nmade the assault upon the attorney,
has also been bound over to appear as a
witness in the case. Being unable to
give bonds for his appearance at the trial
he was committed to the custody of the
Following the suggestion first made in
the columus of the NEW No'~.itRtw:sr
sonic weeks ago, a number of business
men of Anaconda will meet this
week for the purpose of discuss
ing the plan for a new opera house in
the Copper City. Many of the business
men here have become aroused to the
necessity of taking an active interest in
this important matter. In a general way
it is well understood how necessary it is
for this city to have a suitable opera
house, and it is also very well understood
that under present arrangements the city
is the loser to the extent of a good deal
of money from the fact of our not having
accommodations for first class theatrical
attractions. The old policy of a great
many prosperous men in this community
permitting one man to take hold and
push to completion all of these projects
important for the general advancement
of the city, is becoming mighty unpopu
lar. It is now regarded in many quar
ters as being very unwise to permit the
city to suffer for lack of interest on the
part of men who are makinlg their money
within the corporate lilmits. This city
has grown to such proportions that it is
no longer possible or practicable for any
one tmi., noli matter howi wealthy or pub
lic-spirited, to provide every conveniences
which thle city demands. The people
siwho are sharing in the pIrosperity of the
place are niow called to put their shoulders
to the ,whl el and help push these go(od
works alonge. Men who l:have mlade for
tunes there, while equally bright mensh
have met with disasters in other sections
of the state, are b:omlnin arousedt t to the
fact that Anaconda requires united effort
on the part of all the citizens. An opera
holuse is needed and the menll with tmolney
must help to build it. There is not the
slightest doubt but that the money in
vested in suchl an enterprise would pay at
least a reasonable interest. It would ibe
a safe intvestment for the Ipersons putting
their money into it, and it would be a
splendid thing for Anaconda in a geu
eral way. The plan under discussion in
vol\ves tile construction of an opera house
to cost about 5.30,000. it is believed that
very easy terms can be made with the
towtinsite company for a suitable site in a
central location, and it is also understood
that if the business men of tie city will
talke ail interest in thile matter and show\
their appreciation of the enterprise by
contributling a part of the 'funds neces
sary for thie erection of the building, that
a liberal sum could be outained from men
who have always had the best interests
of AnacsonIda at heart, and \who have never
been ibackiward about putting up their
fu111 share or nmore. This opera house
(uliestiolh sihouild be taken ca:re of imlllle
diately. It behooves the public spirited
citizens of the Copper City to go at it in
a ibusiness way andt take handsomlle calre
of it in thle imnlediate future. We be
lieve this \\ill be done.
The different political parties here
abouts are oin the iimove. Calls have been

would be a right ,good thing for the city
if' tils could be done(; but it very pIrobla
bly can't. At this period in Anitconda's
history it is of suplreme importance that
good, sensible, sulbstantial and progress
ire and public-spirited men be elected to
the city council. iBt the partisans will
probably want to get their fingers iuto
the pie and the chances are that any at
templt to elect good men upon ai citizen's
ticket would nmeet with failure.

Tile Recorder last week published a
ticket which it said the people of Deer
Lodge were discussing for the fall elec
tion in this county. It was a mixture po
litically and wsas headed by A. MI. Walker
for sheriff. The Nl"w No'rruwlsor does
not know that it is Mr. Walker's inten
tion to be a candidate, but if it'is, he will
get strong support in this part of the
county where lie is well known and very
highly esteemed for his many sterling
qualities. Ite is a hard-headed, honest
business man andt public business is safe
in his keeping. In one respect at least
the RIecorder's ticket is off. It names
J. MI. Kennedy as a candidate for clerk
and recorder. Mr. Kennedy has stated
positively he is not a candidate for any
office and will not be.
On Monday evening, March 16, at
Evans opera house Ex-Congressman John

entertaining speakers in America than
Mr. Finnerty. A man of commanding
personnel, deep learning and possessed
of all the eloquence and fire of his race.
he charms all who hear him talk. Those
who miss hearing Mr. Finnerty's address
next Monday evening will miss the best
entertainment of the kind that has been
presented in Evans opera house. A good
musical programme has been prepared,
and already tickets enough have been
sold to insure a large audience.
