on tho tariff and financial record as
espoused by tho republican party. Ho
clearly and logically deuncd tho atti
tude of tho republican party on these
two important points, and beforo ho
was half through convinced his audi-
onco that ho understood his themo
thoroughly and could tell it so that
thoso prcsont oould fully understand
it also. Thoro is no dcmogoisin in
Mr. Andrew' make-up, and ho talks
just what ho believes. Ho enters up
on his argument with a courago of his
convictions, based on a knowledge of
facts. Ho docs not try to doceivo for
the salco of voto catching, but in a
clear intelligent manner carries his
audienco with him, and embellishes
his argumonts with excellent points
that carry oonviotion to those who de
sire to bo enlightened on tho -important
political and eoonomio prinoiplos
of the government as enunciated by
tho republican party. Mr. Andrews,
by his straight-forward way and his
extraordinary ability in discussing
important problems, made many
friends who will stand bv him in No
vember. He is certainly a winner.

Not many days ago a gentleman of
roputc, who lives in Red Cloud, and
carries on a flourishing business, fin
ished up his day's work which had
netted him a nico surpltts,and wended
his way homeward, whero after spend
ing soveral hour.-, in social chat with
his wifo and children, retired for tho
night to dream of tho wealth ho had
made, and of the treasurer ho propos
ed to lay up not in heaven but in
thia world, Ho thought how on the
morrow ho would soil so many articles
how tho profits would bo great and all
that. But how was it with his good
wife at homo. She had been conniving
how to help her licged lord to mako
this mint of money so that tho paths
in tho futuro would ho strewn moro
plentifully with bright spots. To
that end bIio had plannod many of tho
household affairs so that each might
bo mado lesB expensive, and ono of
those expenses to bo curtailed was
bread. Tho good wifo therefore,
whilo her hubby was dreaming, had
fixed up a bottlo of yeast and careful
ly corked tho same nnd placed it in an
air-tight compartment to keep it cool
until needed in tho morning. Sho
said nothing to her husband about
tho yeast, and later on rctirod also.
Ho laid thoro sleeping tho sleep of
tho happy and successful businessman
and pleasantly dreamed of tho timo
when ho should riso to affluence. By
this timo tho wifo had gono to dream
land. In tho woo snia' hours tho
yeast got to working, tho business
man commenced changing his dream
to that whioh mado him
fearful. Ho dreamed that al
ter all his days' labor that n
burglar was trying to got it to tho
houso. Just then tho cork flow out
of tho yeast bottle with a tcrriblo ro
port, and up jumped tho b. m , clutch
ed his revolver nnd slid around to an
open window and waited for tho sup
posed burglar, in tho meantime tho
wife discovered tho causo and laughed
tremendously, tho b. in., still hunting
tho burglar. When told what caused
tho disturbance, ho sighed but quietly
remarked, for Godsako Samantha,
don't say any thing to tho neighbors
about it, and I'll buy you a new dress

U. S, Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1885)
by tlio Itcv. 1:. I., ill) ,
I promised last wook to toll tho
readers of The Chief something ol
Helena, but beforo doing to, I think
I will say something of liutto City.
This city enjoys tho distinction of
being tho greatest mining camp in tho
world, not excepting Lcadvillo. How
ever, in spooking of it ns n mining
camp, ono must not take it as a placo
whoro tho buildings aro of canvas or
rouqh boards, but, on tho contrary, it
has many fino brick nnd atono blocks,
und in this rospcot will coniparo fav
orably with any castcru city of equal
It has a population of about twonty
to twonty-flvo thousand including the
other camp situated oloso by and
whioh aro all connoctcd by tho oleo
trio car linos.
Its altitude is 5,482 feet. Coming
into it from tho north ono gets tho
first view of it when soveral hundred
feet abovo it, and as tho train winds
around tho mountains and through
tho gulches, making a rapid descent,
it presents an exceedingly ploluresquo
Thoro aro many mines here, tho
largest of whioh has a holo in tlio
ground about 1500 foct deep. Tho
shaft and hoisting works aro on tho
top of a hill and down perhaps 100
feet from tho top a tunnel is dug
whoro tho tramoars run out from the
shaft with tho oro. Thcso ard run on
narrow tracks perhaps about 30 inchoa
in width, nnd thcro aro two of them,
tho ous running out on ono and baok
on tho othor. As I had no acquain
tances in tho oity und was alone, I
new it would bo useless to try to go
down tht, shnft, but whilo peering in
to tho tunnol I became possessed with
a desiro to exploro it ns far as it wont.
At tho entranoe, apparently to keep
such tendcrfcot as nn self out whero
tbero in less danger of boing run ovor,
thoro was n somewhat antiquatod but
lusty son of Erin. I asked him if I
would bo allowed to go in. His reply
was ,(Naw, not unless yo havo impor
tant business," so I stood and watched
tho ears go in and out for a few mo
ments, each of them in chargo of a
man, and tho temptation bcoamo irro
sistablo, nnd I dropped in behind ono
going in. At tho end of tho tunnel
is a spaoo perhaps 15 or 20 foot squaro
whoro tho cars aro run oil tho eleva
tor on tho rook floor, then rolled on
tho traok and out.
I bad not yet got my eyes fairly ad
justed to tho sudden chango from day
light to lamplight so I oould soo com
fortably, when a miner bounced mo to
get out of tho way. I went over to
tho othor side when up camo another
elevator and I saw I was going to got
another invitation to got out of tho
way, so I concluded thoy wcron't giv
ing mo a very cordial reception, and,
dropping in behind tho out-going car.
I soon saw daylight again, Tho man
at the entrance said, "Well, you wont
in, did you," and then went up to tho
works abovo and gavo mo quito a good
deal of information about tho mining
Thoro is a fino systom of street cars
and water works, but no sewers and
tho drainage is bad, and I think I
never saw mud bo deep us on its main
Ono is struck with tho sig'.it ot
hundreds of men standing on tho
strcots, particularly in the vicinity of
tho great gambling houso. Tho men
work in tho mines in shifts of eight
hours caoh, and as thcro aro about
4700 working at a timo tho crowded
streets aro easily acoountod for.
As in all tho western mining cities
prices aro high. Street oar faio is 10
cents. I paid 25 ocnts for a shave.
Whilo sitting in a restaurant of whioh
thcro aro some excellent ones, I made
a memorandum of soma prices on the
bill of fare: tiandwich, 25o; rggs,
12o for 2; portcrhouso steak, GC to
$1.25; oyster stew, 75o; pio, 15o for
a piece; radishes, 15o. Hut, while
priccj are high, tho quantity of food
furnished was in duo proportion. A
man at my side ordered a sirloin stoak
and it was at least 0x10 inches by
in, thick. Ho was bard at work whou
I left, trying to cot 50o worth out of
it, and I havo no doubt succeeded if
his jaw held out.
Probably in no city of it size, in
this country at least, is thcro so muoh
of crimo and lawlessness to bo seen as
hero. Tho saloon, gambling houso
and brothel run day ind night, soven
days in th weok, without fear of po
Whou wo consider tho class of men
generally found in tho mining towns
of tho west and consider that tho
monthly pay roll hero amounts to
noarly $1,000,000, it is easy t su
how thcso aro supported.
But you must not think thcro aro
no schools or churches. It has an ex
cellent puhlio school and snrcr.il
churches. Tho Presbyterians havo a
very neat edlfico and a membership of
about 200, whilo the Baptists, Metho
dists and Congrcgationalists also hav:
