Tei election is over and it this hour the victory of Dixon and Gibson seems assured. The campaign has been hotly contested, things may have beer. raid in the heat of discussion which the speaker regrets. Great principles of gov ernment have been ably discussed on both aides, and as result we tlud that one large body of the American people have a dif ferent opinion from another equallvhl laoge number of persons. From now un. til the next election we will have time tV study these questions and observe the el fects of the McKinsey bill. Let ever) man give attention to these questions and and when the time comes for him to again cast a vote he will be able to vote intelli gently in the defense of his own interests. THE last act of the Rolfe-Jackson branch of the republican party to try to influence the vote of workingmen was despicable, but from such uoscrupulou, wretches was only to be expected. The flaming poster announcing that 42 repua licans hal been discharged at the dam last night, was simply a bare-faced lie told to work on the feelings of working mien. No sooner were the bills posted than angry workingmen were at the w-o rifr u fdil fle"i Ra I e,,o'of'uo charged from the dam. To such depth, have the republicans fallen that they lhave lost all reward for truth.

During the past ten years the immigra tion fronm Europe bus been 5,272,950, not including that from Mexico and Canada, which would swell the grand total to over 6,000,000. This immigration numbers four times the population of Alabumi and will be represented by more than thirty representatives in Congress. For the most part it is utterly ignorant of ounr customs, language and laws. It is an element of great danger to our institu tions. It adds immensely to that vrolume of Ite populatio. which looks to tht (overnment for pasternal aid and whici sees no benefit in the success of political parties except the distribution of place and patonage. This immense influx of 6,000,000 of foreigners exceeds the popu lation of many mnportant countries of Europe. It is more than tl:e population of Holland, or Norway, or Sweden, or Bielgium, or Greece, or Switzerland, of the Argentine Republic or Canada. Happily a good part of this horde of strangers comes from Germany and the Untted Kingdom, with as much money and brains and industry as had outr fore fathers who settled the country original ly. In the course of time they will be tonie ,a.ctilaterj to the old residents anti -c.suole what oe rIeCorpmre at the Ameri can type. The children of these imml grants will grow up speaking the English language and delivering their little ptt riotic speeches at the country schools, and finally taking control of ward and oeat politics and relpresenting the country in state legislatures and in congress.

After a good deal of explana d tion on my part she flnally seemed to get the idea, and turning somewhat con r, tetptUously to a little cash girl standing by. silo bade her fetch t "can of Marion glze,."

Tihe Niagara River Canal. The Niagara River canal is expected to cost $3,500,000 and furnish 119,000 horse power. With coal at $4 or $5 a ton, the cost of one horse power is placed at from $30 to $40 a year, or, roughly, ten tons of coal per year per horse power. This canal, it it gives the estimated horse power, will furnish a power about equal to 1,200,000 tons a year. This will cost, taking a capitalized value of four per cent. oni the investment, $140,000 as . the first outlay, and at least as much . more for maintenance and repairs. The horse power will therefore be about as cheap as coal at twenty cents a ton, and it appears capable of almost indefinite 'i expansion unless the falls are considered tI of more value than horse power.-New v- York Telegram. The First Sewing Msachine. It is strange how badly we get im portant matters of history mixed. Ask any well informed person who invented the sewing machine and the reply will be Elias Howe, which is far from the I truth in the case. The first sewing ma chine was patented in England by Thomas Sdnut in 1760, sixty years before Howe was born. One of Saint's old ma chines is now on exhibition in the Royal Agricultural hall, Islington, England.

Herman Sudermau, the rising drama tist of Berlin, has prepared a sensational drama entitled "The End of Sodom," e in which the hero marries his own sister aO and both commit suicide just before the fiery rain sets in. On the evening of its intended first performance the Berlin ne police took possession of the theatre, and Sthse police president notified the author and manager that while ia liberal policy was to be te rule yet Berlin could not stand everyt hing. They offered to strike to out the brother and sister episode, but il the presicdent still refuses to allow the rc play to be produced. S Tlhe Boom iic the SMouth. Every reader of the papers knows that the central and upland section of the southern states has been enjoying a sort of "boom" for a dozen years past, but the facts brought out by the recent tour of the English ironmasters in that sec tion will still create astonishment. Theso practical Englishmen boldly pre diet tha t lI central south is destined to become the greatest iron producing re gion in the world, and talk of invest ments of hundreds of millions there as confidently as a common man speaks of buying a village lot. Want Their Names Chainged. Among the suggestive signs of the times in Eurole is a petition filed by sixty-nine Israelito lawyers in JBerlin who want their names changed. They allege that such names as Meyer, Cohen, Levy, Abrahams, etc., injure them in E business during the present anti-Semitic it agitation. The anti-Semites protest u against the granting of the petition, and allege that the Israelite lawyers already outnumber the Gentile lawyers by 45 per cent. A Story of. Byron. Among the stories related in Mr.Will iom Archer's new life of Macready, the actor, is this: Macready had won dis tinction in the provinces, and wishing to appear in London sought Lord Byron's influence to procure anl engagement at Drury Lane. Among other things the person who spoke to Lord Byron in his behalf mentioned that Macready was a man of excellent character. "Abl, then," said Lord Byron, "I suppose lie asks five pounds a week more for his morality," and the negotiation fell through.

Piegan is twelve miles to the north- west anad coltats the sblockade with the dllapidated log alildngs for the agent fand assistanto, and the general store for Joe lipp, who Ia an olt trader with tile IlllallS. The I'iegn tribe colnprises g Ioer 2,I100 mnit InberS and tihey cover a large c territory. They abide in lodges-small log houses--with the roof and chinks coveredr with mud. There is but one small rI m, and in this aii chief with sevit eral oives and a host of children will ex c ist. ''ihe lodges ale scattered for twenty miles on either side of the stockade alnd it small patch of irondl is sometimes ap propriated for gardening. The tribe has p ao love for farming, however, and but lit- a tie ambition for anything except drawing rations as regularly as possible. The I government allo\ws each member b over 1i8 years of age a quarter secti o land; to those fover ti, eighty acres and all under 10, II fortly acres, but no absolute title to pass t for 23 years. By the last treaty, a half I illion dollars was set aside by the goy erainent to be paid the tribe in ten an- t nual installments. Weekly rations, houselold Iurniture, and agricultural impnlements are also provided. The tardi- s ness of congress delayed supplies this a year, so thie issuing of rations is not an ardnous task. Beef is about the only thing left and an extra quantity is Issued until rtie other stuff comes hi. THIE NEW AItENT. George Steell, the newly appointed agent, has taken hold with a firm hand and is sweeping aeay all of the old cob webs of license and abuse. Liquor Is proscribed admission Into the reservation and the Indian police, who have hereto- I f-re winked at the Infraction, are now i vigorous in its enforcement. Awagon I with a large cargo bound for a saloon lear the Great Northern extension, was lately stopped while crossing the reser vation, and the whisky, teamn, wagon and allt Its'ontecis confiscated. Last Satur day while James Donovan of Great Falls and Dr. Wamaley of Choteau were on an electioneering tour at Birch creek, they I Sextended their visit to Plegan to present t I their complements to M1r. Steell. Mr. a Donovan left the doctor at the gate of the stockade to guard the team while lit presented himself at the office. The doctor had a suspicious looking bottle f protruding from his pocket which one 1 of the Indian police noticed and seized. lie took it tothe agent and reported that he had "palled It from the pocket of a white man." Mr. Steell, not'beiog ap pitlad of the doctor's presence, ordered the police to bring in the guilty party. The doeta r was accordingly brought I ftrth, but pleaded ignorance of the law and a physician's privile'es, but all to no avail. The bottle was taken to the guard and spilled in the presence of the police and a large crowd of Indians, who I had gathered to see the fun. The doc tor begged for just one swallow, but wt.s denied and he left the reservation with the resolution to hereafter take enough inwardly at Birch creek to last until his II return, TItu MISSION. it. Three miles beyond the stockade, on at the Two Medicine, a mission has been established through the charity of Miss Kate Drexel of Philadelphia, who lately 1 entered a convent and gave her entire fortune of live million dollars for the Ot education of Indian and colored children. it The mission will accommodate 100 pu th ? orll d as nearl thatnumber now i tt the unul allowance of rations be not ill mli inisled. The school has a slx-year i course, which includes the elementary branches and a modicum of the trades. After their entry they are debarred from reiturnini hlome, as explerience has shown nthat ita few weeks in their old haunts will S poil the work of years and demoralize Sthe best of them. The school Is under tie supervislon of the government, which to p:ys $125 a year for the maintenance of in each chlild. Uncle Sam has also a separ ate school at the stockade, but the acn commodations are meagre and the re sults uUsatislietory, as the children spend their acations at home. It is ex it pected that new quarters for the agency - and a new school, sufficient to meet all demands, will aoon be erected on Cut Bank, about 12 miles from the presert place. Commissioner Morgan's hobby is education and if it is instilled nsuliclient doses the Indian problem will be solved by the time the rising generation have p attained manhood. R. E. LAnn. Married.

The I rst Methodist Chlurch Dedhlatet Wills Appropriate Cerelnolnies. As announced, Rev. Dr.Tower preached at the Methodist church Bunday morning. lie spoke forcibly and impressively on the text, "Fair as the moonbhright as the sun and terrible as an army with ban ners." In an able mannLr he outlined N how thd true follower of Christ should be all that the text implies when brought 1, in contact with sin. To the sinful to only is a spotless chrlsttan hbaracter "Ter rible as any army with banners." At the close of the sermon Dr. Tower gave a short sketch of the struggle of the 1. church through the past three veers and tlt stated that an indebtedness of about $1,- T 100 still hung over it. I-e askel the aud ience to lift the cloud from over the church and in a short time $1,078 were subscribed. At the evening service Dr. Tower sur passed all his previous efforts, preaching la sermon which went home to the hearts of his hearers and stayed there. His topic was "Piety in youth," and he gave convincing reasons thot young and old nhould lead uprlght, pure lives. *A pious life is more conducive to the fullest, f widest development of man, morally and intellectually; it is a shield from tempta tion and sin; it is the only source of C peace in this world; by it only can a per- ti son peacefully meet the "grim monster" a sad joyfully pass to the glorious beyond. Ills sermon, rich in appropriate illustra tion, beautiful comparison and delicate it imagery, was an eloquent plea for all to lead 'hrlstain lives, and before its close O m H.f in the audience were moved to tesas. A debt of $500 was still hanging over the parsonage and Dr. Tower asked the audience to help pay this. In a short time $200 were subscribed. The Ladies Aid society then guaranteed the remain ing $800, and the ceremonies. proceeded. The trustees tendered the building to the church and with the beautiful ceremony d and impressive prayer it was consecrated to the Lord. The amount pledged by the ladies is y yet to be raised, and all who feel inclined t to help them raise the amount will be r. given an opportunity. RIG FIRE IN SAN FRANCISCO.

The Grand hotel was opened d in 1870 by Johnson & Co. and at the time e was considered one of the finest hotels in - the world.
