Yet from the grave of all - this will come the resurrection and the life, and from the throes of this unnatural birth the new state will come forth the setonger for its wrestling, the better for Its beultgeeoy. A more pleasing pleture would be tug gested were we to fancy these white dra r ee, which encompass us round, as dal robes in which to meet the coming year wedding the past to the future, bullbing anew the glorious hopes which hallow all such unions, and sting a horoscope more dazzling than the fondest heart dare foreshadow.

APPROVES THE PLAN. THE PRESIDENT ENDBORSE WIN DaM'S SILVER SCHEME. Death of Gen. Greene of Heleaa-.aeken Will Fight Snllivan-Waidner Deatroyed by Flie. NEw Yons, Jan. 8.-A Washington special to the Sun says that the president has made up his mind about Secretary Windom's silver policy, outlined In the secretary's annual report. The president has adopted Secretary Windom's view of the subject and goes. even further than Mr. Windom in his approval of the pro ject. The president was not chary lathe expression of his approval of the measure to a prominent politician, from wbpm the information was obtained. A bill em bodying the recommendation of the sec retary will be submitted to congress very soon. It is likely to be offered simultan eously in both houses. Its fate In the house is problematic. There Is little doubt that a majority of the republican senators and some of the democratic t members of the senate favor the bill, and F it is likely first to pass that body. All ladiaseas. a BtUrrE, Jan. 8.-Shortlybefore 9 o'clock I yesterday afternoon private telegrams ra from Helena announced the choice of T. C. Power for the second United States senator on the second ballot. The news c, spread like wild fire and was soon the u sole topic of conversation to the city. The report was not given credence by republicans for some time, as it was con sidered an absolute certainty that a went I] side man would be elected from among the many named. When doubt was no longer possible, the republicans beganto lc express themselves in no measuead terms, and to use expresalons which Would sot look nicely in cold type. Said one: "Charley Warken once I called Montana the territory of Helena. d I guess he called the turn, only it seems now to have become the state of Helena." Another one said, "d think it is an out- f rage, and I don't see how itican be made P right. West Side republicans may as 0 well take notice and move to No Mans' land. There ls no place for them here." A third remarked "Let us get the pan handle of Idaho anm organize a separate state. It is ouronly show to any repre senattion."o Still another said, "The re sntatives s in the legilalture will. lsv, rdj time :flig sqcare wtan the people on 'iol matter. Hen who twelve months ago, had never been heard of in politics, men concerning whom the majority of the people of Butte will today ask the ques tion whether they are democrats or re publicans, have been allowed to dictate what the republican party of the state should do." And so the comment passed from one 1 republican to another. The democrats are jubilant, and claim that the republi can party on the West Side has received a blow from which it will never recover, and the republicans are still too mad to contradict them. There is up telling what will be the opinion of republicans on second thought, but the above is a truthful representation of their present feeling. WHAT WEST SIDE MEN SAID. HELENA, Jan. 8.-In the republican joint assembly yesterday Witter made a powerful speech for the West side and said that the republican party had aimed a blow at the cause of labor by defeating one of its champions. Other members spoke in a similar strain. Roberts and Boffman said that the wnav awna nun acute sGORxD without cause. Monteath regretted the action of the majority, but all the west alders agreed to abide by the voice of the majority. Had Rickards but said the word "Mantle would have been elected, but the lieutenant governor expected the light ning to strike him sand refused to support Mr. Mantle. F Bray and Dolman were fur everybody to beat Mastle and cared nothing fr the west side interests. Eastern and North ern Montana were solid for Mantle. If I Dolman and Bray had stood in a west side man would then have been elected, I but they did not. Hoftman, Roberts, Thompson and Monteath were loyal, but Bray and Dolman went back on the went side, and so Helena gets two sena. tors. Paraest to Retire. New Yoax, Jan. 8.-Edmund Yates' cable says that the btatement about the arrangement between Gladstone and Par nell for concerted action at the next seo slon is all moonshine. Parnell is so un well that his appearances will be few and far between. His health for some time has been very unsatisfactory, and of late it bus been growssg wurse. He is suffer lug from a malady which Is attended with fits of severe mental depremsion. He is wholly unequal to the work which his subordinates are ignorantly laytngoot for him. The charge against Hr. Purneli in the divorce oane wilt necessitate his teat porary retirement from the leadership of theparty, which for a time, will pass into the b ttemanly hands of Jus tice Mtderthy, but the policy will be di rected by Dillon. There are those who think that if Mr. Parnell gives up the leadership he will never be permitted to resume it as several of his lieutenants have shown active signs of revolt. Going It Aloes. at New Yowc, Jan. 4.-The New York w merchants have taken the law into their v. own hands. They have dispatched the ad schooner George W. Whitford for San Bias with some explicit iastructions. A Salt Trast formed. Iy New Yuna, Jan. 4.-The proposed of international salt truatbasbeen organized rI with s capital of $90,1100.000, and was yesterday incorporated' under the laws an of this state.

I BrLT, Dec. 81st, 1880. A new town has just been staked out by H. L. Mcintyre in this ylcinity, which bids fair to become a place of considers. ble magnitude at no distant day. The name of the town has rot been decided upon, but it lo presumed it will be named Armington, after one of the founders. It is situated 22 miles east of Great Falls on the Neihart branch of the Manitoba It. I., near the junction of Ottrrandlfelttcreets, on the main wagon road to the Judith Basin country, and will be the shipping point for that rich vast section of country. There is no point more adapted to the shipping of piock than this, as there is an abundance of range and water convenient ly close. There are seven or eight fine coal pros pects near the town. The coal is of splendid quality and the more they are developed, the better the quality. The Manitoba company have put in two switches at this place for the purpose of handling this coal and will pot up a de uo t for receiving sod dellveritsg freighut for the Judith Basin, Otter creek nod the Wolf creek mining region J. T. Armington has put up a coke oven of fire brick with a view of testing the coal for coking purposes. The best experts from abroad and at home assert that it will be a success. Slems and Armiogton, the founders of the town, are men of means and abund ance of energy and are not afraid to spend both in making the town a suc There is now a big inquiry for busi ness and residence lots. As soon as the plat is filed and accepted by the board of commissioners, the property will be put upon the market. MAC. Montana's Greatest Mines.

Y., proposes to send milk to New York through a pipe-line similar to the oil pipeline of the Standard and other companies.
