The St. Paul (Hohe is making an effort to get expressions of the preferences of western editors for candidates for president and vice-president in 1SS8. An active volcano is reported discovered 14 miles from Havispa in the Sierra Madre mountains. The canyons in the vicinity are being filled up with lava. Mme fane Dieulafoy, who received the cross of the Legion of Honor last fall for the help shegave lier husband's explorations at Sus' 1 tells a story of their efforts and discoveries in Harper's Magazine for June. It is as interesting as a romance. The progress made In educating the ne groes of the South will be set fortli in The ( American Magazine for July, The Rev. C. W. Culver, President of Bishop College, Tex., describes the methods of instruction and the measure of success attained. Miss Leila, J. Robinson, of the Suffolk Co. (Mass.) bar, thinks the West offers bet ter opportunities that the East to a woman lawyer, and that the further West one goes, the more favorable the conditions be come. Oregon and Washington territory she thinks the best field of all. The Empress of China issued a decree, just before her retirement, advocating the development of the mining resources of the empire. Site administered a severe re buke to the provincial authorities who iiave thrown difficulties in the way of working the mines, and warned them that such conduct would not be tolerated. Can the red man be civilized.' An af firmative answer to this question seems to be given in an article entitled "Metla kahtla," by Z. L. White, which will be published in the July number of The American Magazine. A tribe of brutal savages, the worst Indians on the Pacific Coast, has been transformed, according to this account, into an orderly, industrious .and thrifty community. A woman who, six years ago, knew nothing of business, now makes the only blankets in the country that can com pete with those of the famous Mission Mills, in California. She has a small mill run by water-power up in Vermont, and she experimented in her own kitchen mix ing the dyes until she got the exact shades. Her blankets now can hardly be distin guished from those of the Mission Mills, and her little mill is kept running day and night to fill orders. A PUBLIC LIBRARY. Those of our citizens who arc fond of good reading will be glad to know that it is quite possible to gratify their taste in that slirection without being obliged to buy every book they read. We print, below, section 1 and 7 of the Free Library and Reading Room bill, introduced in the Montana Legislature, by Armstrong last •winter. Other sections regulate the government and provide for the welfaie of the library, when established, and for the appointment of a board of directors by the school hoard of the city. Section l. The common council of every incorporated city in this Territory, containing over five hundred inhabitants, 'halt have power to establish and maintain -t public library and reading room, and for »uch purpose, may annually levy a tax, not exceeding one mill on each dollar of tax able property of such city, to constitute the library fund, which shall be kept sepa rate from the other money of the city by the treasurer, the same shall be used ex clusively for such purpose. J'roiidrd. That such tax shall be sub mitted to a vote and be approved by a ma jority of the electors of the city. Section VII. To aid and facilitate the organization of a library in any city, where the sum of four hundred dollars or more shall iiave been donated or deposited with the city treasurer for the benefit of such library, the city council shall appropriate two hundred dollars from the general fund of the city for the library, for whicli amount a warrant shall be drawn on the city treasurer, and the payment of such warrant shall be provided for in the next assess ment of taxes in the city, without submit ting the same to a vote, as provided in sec tion I of this act. The High School, and those who look forward to the long winter evenings, will be especially interested in this, and the matter ought to receive attention. In the States most cities of the size and enterprize of Dillon, have good circulating libraries and we ought not be behbid in anything so essential. THE SO-CALLED FROST DEFALCA TION. The Butte Miner , of the 6th inst., pub lished under the head of "Grave Charges," what purported to be an account of Rev. C. C. Frost's transactions in connection with the Hope mine, in which Mr. Frost's honesty was placed in rather a question able light. Mr. Frost has many warm friends in Dillon, who were greatly sur prised at the nature of the charges made against him, especially so because of the slight foundation for such serious accusa tions. It is firmly believed by all his friends that he can not only satisfactorily explain all ot iiis alleged defalcations, but that when the truth becomes fully known there will be found tobe no basis whatever for these "grave charges." It is generally believed by Mr. Frost's friends that Gates, the superintendent nf the Hope mine, is largely responsible for these charges, and that Frost is a victim of misplaced confi dence. Their grounds for such a belief is Gates' own testimony and the showing of Attorney Cole in the divorce case that re quired Gates'attendance at court this week. Gates testified that Frost and Haskell were the owners of Hope mine. Compare this sworn statement with the following para graph in the Monday'6 Miner , namely: "Gates said to Dr. Clark and two or three other parties that Frost had disposed of his interest in the Hope mine and the other partners were to Iiave a settlement on Sat urday last." Taking all the facts into consider ation Frost's transactions are in no senseoutof the ordinary line of business between partners. The aale of ore, the purchasing of supplies; in fact the whole conduct of the Hope mine is simply a mat ter between partners and not a matter to be published under the head of "Grave Charges." So far as facts have come to •' tht it is a matter Ihat concerns only two men, Frost and Haskell, and with $150,000 of ore in sight it is simply absurd to charge one of the partners with being a defaulter to the amount of $2,250. Haskell himself states to the Inter Mountain that the whole matter is one that concerns himself and Frost alone and that he (Haskell) is not bound by the actions of a company. Mr. Frost was telegraphed the full particulars concerning the charges against him, and replied that he would return immediately, face his accusers and satisfactorily ac count for all his transactions, that he will be able to do this none of his friends doubt, but Iiave fullest confidence in his integrity, and in his ability to meet his accusers, who have in such a treacherous manner attacked him in his absence.
