Effects of tlio Chinook.
Helena Herald : The advance sheets
sf nn pld-fnshioncd chinoek wind have
been in circulation hereabouts for sev
eral days , but not until last night did
the regular full edition come out. But
when it came there was no mistaking it.
It was the genuine article , and came
like a Dakota cyclone passing through
a furnace. It was old Boreas himself
with his frozen breath thawed out and
boiled. It roared through the timber
on the mountains , und came sweeping
down on Helena and the valley like a
flock of buzzards on a dead sheep. How
the signs and awnings creaked , how the
windows rattled , how the chimneys
played bassoon to the gale , how build
ings shook and how generally the chinook -
nook look possession of the town ! From
8 o'clock in the evening until after mid
night the gentle zephyr from the
Mikado's realms frolicked about the
streets to it's heart's content , sweeping
off everything that was not an
chored down , knocking ever chim
neys , tearing down fences , lifting
roofs from houses , and reveling in other
such sportive antics , all the while moan
ing lilco a lost hqul and breathing its
torml breath against the mass of snow
and ice that melted and ran away in
streams from its hot-mouthed pursuer
like molten solder trying to escape the
tinner's iron. Not until near daybreak
did the violence of the Rocky Mountain
sirocco abate , and when the dawn ap
peared the , effects of the night's gale
were apparent. Where last night there
was a foot of snow the ground was laid
bare , and the streets , which up to yes
terday afforded excellent sleighing ,
were transformed into seas of slush and
mud. Patches of bare ground now peep
out on the hillji , where yesterday snow
covered everything. The mercury took
a sudilqn spurt and accomplished an up
ward journey of 20 ° , landing at ( it)0 )
above zero , whcio it has stood all day.
A bright sun has shone all dayand people
ple are going about without overcoats ,
climbing the hills in the sweat of their
brow , and sighiub forpaniholsand palm-
leaf fans. The weather lias assumed the
air of spring , and the winter booms
buried in the past. Such are the mag
ical effects of the great chinook which
swept over Helena- last night. It did
some damage , but everyone who basked
in the bright suiixhino and breathed the
balmy air of to-dav will bo inclined to
forgive it for toppling ever a few chim
neys and demoralizing some fences. All
hail your arrival , most | Xtent chinook ,
and may your days bo long in the land.

CHICAGO , Feb. 11. [ Special Telegram to
the BEE.I Bankers are apparently well sup
plied with loanable funds and street brokers
have more money than usual for the accommo
dation of borrowers. Managers of the lead
ing banking institutions , however , nro dis
posed to pursue a very conservative course
and are very careful In placing their funds ,
requiring undoubted collaterals or excellent
names and at the same time nn safe margins.
Among board of trade operators there Is lit
tle demand for money at present. Specula
tors are not extending their operations be
yond their private means , and what little as
sistance they need is readily obtained. Puck
ers , too , are doing only a moderate business
and require very little money at present , con
siderably less than usual at this season of the
year. There Is some money being forwarded
to interior points for the movement of grain
ind live stock , with a fair proportion through
the hands of commission merchants. Some
money Is being placed in warehouse receipts
In some of the .larger cities of the west on
rather wide margins und good rates of inter
est. The wholesale merchants are not quite
as pressing as they were some time ago. The
deposits of country bunks are slightly in
creasing , but chiefly In sections whcro farm
ers have been Rolling their products quite
freely. Hates of interest show little change ,
rather more favorable to borrowers. Loans
on good paper command 0@7 per cent , mainly
at the inside figure. Occasional loans nro
made on choice collateral and gilt-edge
names at 5(35) ( $ per cent , but these are excep
tional. Some paper is accepted on the street
at these figures. In eastern financial centers
money is gradually working easier and bankers
now are in a position to accommodate all good
parties with all the financial assistance they
need. Uates of interest range at 4@5 per
cent on prime mercantile papers , with call
loans at still lower figures. Considering the
fact that about $40,000,000 of railroad bonds
have been placed on the market since the be
ginning of the year , there appears to bo no
particular stringency in the money
market in any part of the country.
Financial adults In European markets , too ,
are apparently in an easy position. The po
litical situation is regarded \vithu _ more
peaceful outlook and there Is little Inclina
tion to enlarge all branches of trade. Money
is plenty and rates of interest extremely low.
New York exchange was in fair demand
throughout the week und offerings were not
large. Sales between bunks were made at
par@-5 cents per 11,000 and the ' makct closed
steudy at 25 cents premium. Foreign ex
change was inclined to quietness quring the
past week. The demand was limited and
offers of shippers sixty-days' documentary
bills on London were fair. Prices ruled
easier , with sales at W.email@example.com'J ! < , and closed
at Jl.h'J.'M-l.i'-K. Stocks in New York were
only moderately active throughout the week
Just closed. An easy feeling prevailed and
prices for the leading properties were more
favorable to buyers. Thcio wus no particu
lar pressure to sell and the demand wus some
what limited , Wull sticet operators traded
moderately , hut outside speculators held off
the market. Foreign operators were not in
clined to do much trading , and the advices
from that quarter were unfavorjblo to sellers.
The earnings of the leading railroads uro
gradually decreasing , ami thu unsettled feel
ing and the unusual cutting ol frelent rates
in all quarters will undoubtedly tend to
further diminish their business and available
means. Under these circumstances specula-
torn are dls | < oed to hold aloof from the stock
.market-und devote their thnoand money to
speculations in other articles. The aggregate
sales on the New York tHodc exchange for
the week weru 781,000'nhures. . Speculative

several weeks past and a lower range of
prices was reached on all leading articlci ,
more particularly in grain. It was
quite evident that the "longs" were anxious
to realize , the general surroundings of the
trade leaning to lower prices. Unfavorable
foreign news depressed some cereals , while
larger stocks ana prospects of free urrlvals
tended to encourage the "shorts" to enlarge
their lines of others. Operators are looking
for Improved trade as soon OH the railiouds
are all in running order again , us freight
rates have been reduced to such low figures
that shippers will be anxious to take adviiu
tage of the situation. No doubt there will bo
a very free movement of grain from the
west to the east before the freight troubles
nro definitely settled , us the eastern
lines will probably bo drawn into the
muddle. Export rates now favor the
shipping interest. Eastern markets have ex
hibited n little more life nt a decline in price
nnd there is some disposition manifested
abroad to take hold , though still further con
cessions in prices are insisted upon. Pro
visions have sympathized somewhat with the
downward tendency in grain , though show
ing some strength curly in the week on ac
count of the light reseipts of hogs. The
movement of all kinds of produce has been
somewhat larger at all the principal western
markets und the shipments , too , are improv
ing. The packing of the west shows little
change from that of one week ago , but the
quality of the hogs is very poor.
Chicago Times : On Suturdny , tit Ran
dolph , Utah , Robert McKinnon and
John F. Spencer wont , to the mountain
on the cast side of Bear river for wood ,
each taking IUH gun with him. They
had boon at the cedars but u short time
when Robert McKinnon saw a largo
mountain lion going direct for young
Spencer. Thinking to save his friend ,
ho got his gun ( u 45-calibcr Browning )
and fired at the lion , which was distant
about three hundred yards , hitting him
near the root of the tail , but not low
enough to break the animal down. The
sting of the wound enraged the brute ,
and seoiiifr John F. Spencer about one
hundred yards above , with a howl of
rage it went bounding uptlio mountain
at him. John F. , rcali/.ing his
perilous position , ran to a lodge
of rocks near by. Ilo was hardly
in a good position when the lion
was at the lodge and within thirty foot ;
it leaped on the first table rock and was
preparing for another spring , when it
received a ball in the brciibi from the
rillo of young Sponcor. This knocked
the brute elf the rock ; but , nothing
daunted , it again leaped up to the same
position , lashing its bides with "its long
tail , and howling with rage and pain.
Again young Spencer fired , the bccond
bullet albo taking olTcct in the breast
and down went the brute a second time.
This was repeated three times more.
The five bullets had all penetrated the
lion's breast , and plowed their way
through the body.
Fully ono hundred people took a look
at the mounter to-day , some of the In
dies being afraid to go nuar it. Its
head is very largo , and its tusks two
inches long. It measured , from the
nose to the end of the tail , seven feet
four inches ; height nearly four feet ;
around the forearm fourteen inelu's ;
across thu foot six inches ; length of tail ,
two fcut eight inches ; weight 175

THE CROP OF CANDIDATES
A Shrewd Politician's Views on
CHAIRMAN CLARKSON TALK9 *
IlcThlukH the Next ITrttforni Should
Accept Wnr Issues its Set
tled How to Hrcnk the
CIIICAOO'Feb. 11. The executive committee
too of three of the sub committee of seven
of the national republican committee , con *
slsttng of ClnrkMm , Conger and Clayton , re
mained In the city to-day perfecting the
plans and details outlined by the whole com
mittee. The headquarters of the national
committee for the convention have been es
tablished at the Grand I'uclllu hot.-l in the
sumo club rooms as In isslt und ISfcrt. Tha
citizens' committee bus been directed thai
the convention hall must be ready aud
turned over to the national committee on
Thursday before the meeting of thu conven
tion. Tin ; seating capacity of the hall will
not bo over T.tKK ) persons. To give this ca
pacity all the boxes will bo dispensed with
and opera cliulrs replaced by ordinary chairs.
The citizens' committee of Chicago were
given 1,400 tickets four and eight
years ago , and arc now Insisting on that
many , but the committee , will not
be able to supply such a number.
Delegates nnd alternates numbering about
seventeen hundred will bo seated on the
lower floor in the parquctto nnd circle. In
the three tiers above this balcony und the two
gulleries , visitors will bo reserved for tua
more noted guests. The desks for the press
vill bo immediately in front of the stage.
? uch of the delegates will probably have
hrec tickets for distribution. These will not
'O ' season tickets , us heretofore , hut dully
ickcts , nnd therefore capable of receiving a
urger mnnbor of visitors.
Mr. Chirkson , chairman of the sub-commit *
ce , was interviewed to-night as to his 1m-
rosslons of the Indications as to candidate 0,9
ovoloped during the committee session here ,
vhlch drew In many politicians from the dif-
ercnt states. He said :
Everything gives cheering Indications of
in Increasing determination among re
publicans to look beyond the convention
o the election und to unite on the man , who-
iver no is , who can most certainly be elected.
There Is less factional feeling than formally
'cars. ' All republicans realize now , nnd ex
perience can alone tench them , the disad
vantage and discomfort of bcingoutof power.
To answer your questions frankly without
egard to the interest of any candidate I
vould say that the paitynow appears to be
livldcd into two Miitsof opinion. One class
iclieves that there are enough republicans
n the country still for the party und Its
iriueipnls to elect a president , and who bo-
iove that a non-factional .candidate would
bring back all the republicans who have been
out of line , except those who are permanently
. , 'ono on account of the tariff , and who would
lot return unless the party should pructl-
ully declaio against protection. This
class of men believe that a wcstorli
republican of loyal puity record without personal - '
sonal or factional enmities and not too hiiih u
irotcctlonlst , but more on the line of Gar-
Held as to tariff , should he nominated.
The present drift of this eluss among civil-
mis Is toward Allison , who will have his own
state enthusiastically for him , if ho wants it ,
who has great strength all over the west nnd
among the business Interests of the east , anfl
s without enmities In the party und has a
tariff record like that of Garlleld among sol
There Is an effort to direct the popular tide
toward Sherman. This is on the surface Just
now , but the undertone is strongly towards
Gicsham , who , different from many soldiers ,
seems to bo strong in that peculiar union und
fellowship of snub soldiers us are united in
: he organized form of the Grand Army , the
Loyal Legion , etc. , and who Is strong also
with some of the elements of dissatisfied ro-
mblicans in the cast nnd who is ulso
itrong with the anti-monopoly elements
of the west. If a soldier is tel
l > o chosen the situation , taking cost '
nr.d west together , prefigures a soldier Ilka
Gresham who Is strong in peculiar points
und strong both east and west.
The other class of republicans , nnd I should
say they were greatly In the majority , buy
that the situation demands a man who , be
cause of his strength with the working puo-
ilo and on the tariff question , can command
more votes than his party now has left.
They hold that , with such a candidate , the
[ i.irty.would have double assurance of suc
cess and that such u man alone can be sura
of carrying New York , New Jersey , and
Connecticut. These , people are all for Hlulnc ,
nnd more enthusiastically than ever. So uro
the republicans who favor an emphatic nnd
distinctively American policy la all things.
Uluino has lost no friends in the west , but )
rather gained in the cast. He has gained in
Massachusetts , Now Jersey und Connecticut ,
und held his o\s n In New York among thu re
publicans , und materially gained in that stuto
iimoug dcmocruts and working men who are
for protection. All these elements thinlc
Blulno Is to bo nominated. Meanwhile , ho
makes no sign , answers no letters , and is
evidently determined to leave the whole mat
ter to the party , without suggestions from
himself , or any organized effort being mudo
by his friends.
One good thing Is the apparent purpose of
the party to make such u platform us will ,
without chungo from its fanner position op
principles , accept the war Issues us settled , '
und leave the way open for all men who uro
with it in the south on present Issues to Join
with it for the future. There is a
republican majority , In two or three
of the border states , on such a platform ,
and ulso a chance. If the party shall not scc-
tionull/o the tariff questions by taking the
tariff on sugar , to curry Louisiana at the
state election in April , and thus break the
solid south before the national campaign has
really opened. With Wurmouth us u cun-
didate , representing In himself us a sugar-
planter , the tariff interests of Louisiana and
the bitter fight between the McEnnerv and
Nlchol democrats and two United States
senators to elect , there next winter , there Is
an opjMirtunlty for a republican union with )
the tariff und the McEnnery dcmocruts can
bo utilized to curry that stuto.
In regard to the appointment of sergeant- ,
at-arms for the national convention , General' '
Fitzsimmons , who was chosen , wus u union
soldier of gallant record und in every respect
fit for his position on account of 'his war rec
ord. AH to Colonel Hcaly , the committed
meant no disrespect to the veterans' club.
They expect that General Fitzalmtmms will
appoint a largo number of union soldiers'
among his subordinates and ulso that ho will
recognize many of the young republicans ,
who are now the lighting force of the party , !
and give them generous recognition in thesa
honors as well as the Grand Army veterans.
