The Territorial Smelter.
Editor Enterprise:—You may, perhaps, have heanl of the great smel ter that is to be located in the Territory of Helena, but as your readers know very little more about the matter than myself, I hasten to inform you that it is an assured fact. There can be no doubt that it is a certainty, and the re peated publication of the fact by our local press should convince the most skeptical. Even so conservative and retiring an individual as my friend Schwab, of the Cosmopolitan, has stat ed that "Helena must have the smelter, and therefore Helena will get the smelter." This should be conclusive. It may be said that Helena people, like the telescope on Mount Helena and in the watch-tower, are gauged to see nothing beyond our city and vicinity. This, however, is not the case. It is true our people discourage the develop ment of any locality that can not be made directly tributary to Helena by withholding capital that must corne from our Territory to successfully work mines of those districts. Some of the more enterprising citizens have gone farther and bonded mines «luring the season that they might be worked, only to forfeit them on the flimsy pretext that they were not so rich as represent ed. This not only retards development but "gives the camp a black eye, account of the recognized authority of these men as to what constitutes a pay Ing mine. You will thus see that w are alive to the interests of Helena and vicinity. I have digressed from the subject of which I desired particularly to discuss—the great Helena smelter— and will give you some of the reasons that exist why this city must and will have the smelter. In the first place everything required in öperating .the plant—such as coke, coal, charcoal fluxes and the ore itself—will have be shipped to the smelter. This will give business to the several railroads which centre here and prove greatly to the advantage of Helena. No water power exists here and consequently greater investment will be required erect the plant and furnish it with necessary power. It will also increase the operating expenses largely, requir ing an additional disbursement of many thousands of dollars annually, and this too, will prove a boon to Helena and vicinity. It may be argued by rival towns, jealous of the capital's prosper ity, that the stockholders may object to these needless additional expenditures in the construction and operation their plant. My answer to this is that the increased price of city property that will accrue by reason of its location at this place will offset any loss in the operation of the smelter, making it success to Helena and vicinity from the start, with a prospect that it will short ly rival the great reduction works to at Omaha. Helena, May 10,1888. Observer. Railroad Notes. Railroad Notes. The Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, the Bock Island, the Chicago & Northwestern the Wabash and the Michigan Central have all decided to pnt vestibule trains on their lines. The total earnings of the Northern Pa cific for April were $1,412,000, an in crease of $291,694 over last year. The earnings of the St. Paul & Duluth for the month of April were $105,607. James Rogers of Winnipeg, a well known railroad engineer, has been on the Pacific coast the past week, and it is he licvedlic is making a trip in the interest of an American syndicate of capitalists, who are contemplating the building of a line from some point on the North Pacific or Manitoba to Alaska, skirting the east era slope of the Rocky mountains. The laying of the track through the long Cascade tunnel on the Nothern Pa cific was completed on Saturday, and the event was celebrated by nearly the entire population of Tacoma as oue of the most important that lias occurred m the north west. The tunnel is 9,850 feet m lcngtl and second only to the Iloosac among railroad tunnels of the United States Tills means the final completion of the main line of the Northern Pacific railway The Lone Highwayman. San Antonio (Texas) special: The lone highway robber must have escaped from the clutches of Uncle Sam, as the United States mail and thirteen of her brave citizens were relieved of their valuables by a lone robber while on their way from here to San Angelo yesterday morning. 'As there were too many passengers for the stage an extra hack was sent with it. When the stage reached a point not far beyond the Nichols pasture, before noon yesterday, the stage driver was ordered to halt, which he did, and remained at a stand until the hack drove up, which was about one hundred yards behind, where upon the passengers were ordered to dismount, which order* was promptly obeyed, and, standing up in a line, the robber, after placing caps over the heads of all of them, quickly and unin terruptedly relieved them and the mail pouches of their contents. After this was done he held them for nearly four hours waiting for the other stage going from here, but on account of the bad and muddy road it failed to make its appearance. The robber permitted them to depart on their way, giving each enough money to buy a meal at Willow Waterhole station; also a certi ficate written on a drummer's card in words as follows: I hereby certify that all of you are onest and brave gentleman, but that you are not armed and prepared to de fend yourselves.

THÉ LESSONS OF "UNSER FRIT* CASE The greatest doctors in Europe don't seem to' know what ails "Unser Frite." , Thus are the Garfield and Grant ! episodes repeated, and public confidence in "expert" medical knowledge is again shaken. The effect is a revulsion. Since the fatal days of 1883, many of the doctrines of the schoolmen concern ing extensive medication have been abandoned, and all schools of practice are more and more relying upon old fashioned simple root and herb prepara tions and careful nursing,—the only re liances known to our ancestors. These methods and reliances are illus trated to-day in a series of old-fashioned roots and herbs preparations recently given to the world by the well-known proprietors of Warner's safe cure—pre parations made from formulae possessed by many of onr oldest families, and rescued for popular use, and issued under the happy designation of Warner's Log Cabin Remedies. "My son," exclaimed a venerable woman to the ■writer when he was a boy, "my son, you'r yeller and pale and weak like lookin', you'r needin' a good shak ing up with some sas'paril'." A jug of spring sarsaparilla was just as necessary in the "winter supplies" of titty years ago as was a barrel of pork, and a famous medical authority says that the very general prevalence of the use of such a preparation as Log Cabin Sarsaparilla explains the rugged health of our ancestors. While Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla is an excellent remedy for all seasons of the year, it is particularly valuable in the spring, when the system is full of slug rish blood and requires a natural con stitutional tonic and invigorator to resist colds and pneumonia, and the effects of a long winter. Philo M. Parsons, clerk of the City Hotel of Hartford, Conn., was prostrated with a cold which, he says, "seemed to settle through my body. I neglected it and the result was my blood became impoverished and poisoned, in dicated by inflamed eyes. I was treated but my eyes grew worse. I was obliged (o wear a shade over them. I feared that I would be obliged to give up work." "Under the operation of Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla and Liver Pills," he says, "The sore and inflamed eyes disap peared. My blood, I know, is in a healthier condition than it has been for years. I have a much better appetite. I shall take several more bottles for safety's sake. Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla is a great blood purifier and I most heartily recommend it." A few bottles of Warner's Log Cabin Sarsaparilla used in the family now will save many a week of sickness and many a dollar of bills. Use no other. This is the oldest, most thoroughly tested, and the best, is put up in the largest sarsa parilla bottle on the market, containing 120 doses. There is no other preparation of similar name that can equal it. The name of its manufacturers is a guarantee of its superior worth While the great doctors wrangle over the technicalities of an advanced medical science that can not cure disease, such simple preparations yearly snatch aillions fr< millions from untimely graves. An Explanation. is a An Explanation. What is the "nervous trouble" with which so many seem now to be afflicted If you will remember a few years ago the word Malaria was compartivcly unknown —to-dry it is as common as any word in the English language, yet this word covers only the meaning of another word used by our forefathers in times past. So it witli nervous diseases, as they and Malaria are intended to cover what our grandfath ers called Billiousness, and all are caused bw troubles that arise from a diseased condition of the Liver which in perform ing its functions finding it cannot dispose of the bile through the ordinary channel is compelled to pass it off through the system, causing nervous troubles, Malaria Billious Fever, etc. You who are suffer ing can well appreciate a cure.
