What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

On onr recent trip over the Territory one of the most promising camps we vSalted was that of Silver Bow, in Deer Lodge County. The mines in that vicinity are being extensively worked. and the prospect for a more than average yield is Indicated by the amount of dust already taken out. Business appeared to be active. Wet - bald and Lowe are the merchant princes of the ch . ', and are selling many goods. Robbing it Savage supply the citizens with first-class meats. To n Robbins and another gentleman are the -guardian angels\ of the ,lace, which tact the the boys thereabouts seem to think a good joke on angels generally. Ike Dean. the gentlemanly post master at that point is the life, socially, of the town, and one of the most popular and re- spected citizens of Deer Lodge Comity - and were it not tor the filet that he is a red-hot Republican, we should like to see him returned to the next Legislature. Ile has !served his constituents laithfully and with ability for one term in that bo- dy, anti if a Republican has to be return- ed, we say let that Republican be Ike Dean. On our way from Deer Lodge to Silver Bow we found a capital stopping place at the hotel of L. Be?auger. Warm Springs. Mr. Belanger formerly kept a hotel at Nevada City. in the stand now occupied by Mr. Brouwer, and it seemed to us like getting home to stop with him. We advise all who pass that way and are an hungered or athirst. to tarry for a season and partake of the good and pal- ateable things such as Mrs. Belanger pre- pares and sets before the guests of the Warm Springs Hotel. Butte City is suffering from dro th, water being so light that but compara- tively little; can be done in the mines of that section this summer. The same we found to be substantially so at Rock- er. II these camps could have a supply of water they would be among the best in the Territory. The only things of note we saw at Ar- genta. was the deplorable decay of the place, awl the extensive egg -incubating. fowl -hatching establishment of Mr. G. D. French. Mr. F. has the art of hatching fowl down to a scratch. He clucks as naturally as a real mother bird, and our wonder is that he hl not eitnier in life discovered his peculiar adaptation to the purposa, and long before set \ himself. ..7For what we saw while in Bannack,s4e \ Bannock Brevities\ in last week's MADHONIAN. REMOVAL OF TM: CAPITAL. NO. The Helena papers for the past two weeks have been keeping up an editorial snd excerpted dribble on the, with them. all -absorbing subject, Capital Removal Question, adducing in broken doses what they claim to be reasons why the Capi- tal should no longer be allowed to re- main where it is, but should be removed to Helena, at the same time they clearly realizing the fact that Helena from its geographical location cannot for many years to come, if ever, have railroad communication with other parts of the Territory. al knowledge that Helena is not the proper place for the permanent location of the seat of government -they do not ask it, do not expect it to be permanently located there, but only for a temporary convenience to that town, and that at an expense to the Territory much greater than could possibly arise from the assembling of the Legislature. for two or three sessions at most. at Virginia City. To hear these Solons talk one might think the only expense at- tending the removal of the Capital would be simply the loading of the several offi- cials with their sundry effects on to one of Helena's -of course none other would be allowed the honor -last bull trains. and transport it. This is one of the argu- ments used by the advocates of Hslena. It is very thin. The expense of trans- portation is hut a drop in the bucket as compared with that of fitting up offises for the various departments. And then, this is but the beginning of the mil. Should Helena succetal in securing the removal of the Capital within her limits -we do not entertain the A - emotest idea that she ever will -but merely for the sake of argument, we say if she shou:d. she would leave no stone unturned to re- tain it there no matter what might be the nee .ssity for more accessible point inent characteristic crops out on every remain with them -strong in death.\ its removal to a . Self is the prom - of that people, it occasion, and will a ruling passion, In the event of Helena securing the removal there would be no end to her further wants. first of which would be Capitol buildings with all the embellishments. The Herald of the 29th ult., contains the following bit of irony: \Let our neighbors in Alder ear bluntly, hosestly ' Virginia has no rightful claim to the Capital; it helps our town Interests to have it here; we should he glad if the people would vote not to take it away: but if they must have lc elsewhere, easy of access and Iwo- to t populous ommunitie, why let it go -the .n- terests of the Territory weigh more thau the Uhereats of our town, we acquiesce • Not exactly. But here is what the peo- ple of \Alder\ do stay, and their lan- guage will be re-echoed by three -fourths of the voters of the Territory on the first Monday in August next: \That while we do tot claim that Virginia City is the place for the permanent location of the Capital. we will not sanction its removal to another point, equally as ob- jectionable, merely to gratify the self-im- portant vanity of a people who labor exclusively for their own aggrandise- ment, without any apparent regard for. the rights and interests of other portions of the Territory, but we wallet it remain Where it is until the inevitable influx... of kopulation, and the development of the -mineral and asericultural resonkees of the country shall demonstrate 'where it should be permanently located.'\ This. is the practical view of th . equestion, and we confidently believe the decision of the _ _ . peel* will be in accordance With • OR130N ELECTION. - The Oregon election has resulted in an average raajority of a little over six !mal- arial for the entire Democratic ticket.

We looked tbr the Miasoulian to wizgle and writhe under the charges .we prefer red aphid it for its turning cower to Hel- ena, and for its recanting of former opin- ions of opposition to removal of the Cap- ital. The circumstantial evidence we ad- duced was of such a character that every honest man in Montana Mat admit that the Missonlian's \flopping over\ was a matter simply reckoned lay dollars and cents. This is now a settled conviction in the minds of the people, and it will take a voluminous amount of positive testimony to even shake it. If it is an exhibition of \stupidity\ to bring to light a matter of frond and corrupt dealing, we plead guilty of stupidity and the Missou- lian can make the most of it. The MiSaOttlian's attempt at explana- tion and justification of its course is dis- tres s ing. It is like a pleading of guilty in'open court. Its flimsy pretexts to tiov- er up its shame anti guilt are easily seen through. and it seeks shelter behind the cry for arguments and in a charge of in- decent journalism. as follows: \ If you have any arguments to produce let us have them. lea do not try to divert public attention from the issue before the people by the adoption of this -played-out\ Brick Pomeroy style of journalism.\ The following quotation, from the Mis- - soulian, is about the weightiest specimen of \Brick Pomeroy\ journalism that its feeble editor is capable of perpetrating. It is true, there is nothing in it, and any common blackguard ought to an but it is malignant and forcible black- guardism for -a sick Turk\ to make: 'The bill providing for the removal of the Capital of the Territory has passed both Houses of the Legislature, and received the ;approval of the Governor.

Possibly to feed a newspaper on food of its own making will be stuff in the argumentative line that will conic directly home and be ap- preciated. We submit to the Missoulian \ arguments\ of its own manufacture and although they may not be as pointed as we could present, still they are not with- out some force. An article printed in the coltunns of the Missoulian reads: \The [Capital] question will be submitted to the people I; a. their approval or disapproval at the general election this bummer, , and in making up our verdict in the case the following, are some of the leading questions to be takea into consideration: First, is the time ripe for a removal of the Capital, or is the movement premature? Sec)nd, is Helena, front her geo- graphical los 'riot' and hec position as the Me- tropolis of the 'territory the proper place for tne permaneut Capitals Third, 'latter the pres- ent financial emberrassment of the people, is it policy to incur the necessary incolessal expee- aes to the Territory of a rein 'vat of the Capital Tit the pre,ent time?

Of course, aurae minor advantages wid acetate to us by the rem .val of the Capital to Hee la, hut are they of sufficient force to counterbalance the .reasons that weigh against the present removal.\ These Missoulian observations and ar- guments are submitted and are subject to the interpretation of the Missoulian. If they were good and pertinent at the time they were issued. they are now. Un- less the interposition of pecuniary con- siderations has stayed the Missoulian's hostility to Helena, its former objections hold good to -day. Let the Missoulian explain its reprehensible record, that is, as it now remains. repugnant to an intel- ligent people, who can not help but be- lieve its trilling influence has been pur- chased at a small stipend. THE SPEECH OF HON. SAMUEL WORD IN THE DEMOCRATIC COUNTY CON- VENTION. mim the introduction of the preamble and resolution by Mr. CowelLof Sheridan. in the Democratic County Convention on last Wednesday. to be foinel in the pro- eeeditigS pliblished mu anot her column to- day, Word delivered a speech return- ing thanks for the honoranil compliment conferred upon laim, and said that he was glad of an opportunity to address the Convention, in response thereto. He said he felt proud to know that he owned so large a share of his tellow-citizens - confi- dence and esteetn-among whom he had lived so many years. That if ever call- ed upon to represent them in Congress.he would not fail in his devotion to the in- terests of Madison Comity, which were first in point of wealth in this Territory, and on:y exceeded slightly iii population by the ;amities of Deer Lodge ammo Lewis • Clarke. etathson had never and he. (snort-) with a nomination in the selection of candidates for that position, but had been seemingly ignored. Madi- son County is a part of that important portion of the Territory known as East- ern Montana. Its wealth and population was. like the wealth and population of other counties comprised in that section, growing everyday. It was identified in iuterest with the counties of Jefferson, Gallatin. Beaverhead and Meagher and had many friends in Desr Lodge and Missoula. It was. :ike !ts sister counties, upon the very threshhold of a grand civ- ilization. and its population would soon be greater than that of any other county in the Territory -and yet, its import- ance is entirely ignored. when selecting a representative to the National legisla- ture. Mr. Word said he recognized in the men who had paid him this compliment citizens of long standing. fidelity and loy- alty to the great pr:nciples of Democracy; but while those before him and others of his fellow -citizens, were, doubtless, will- _ing to entrust their interests in his hands, as their representative in Congress, here- - questol the rescinding „of the ,resolution -as at present the preamble would be honor enouele - It was the expression of -friends who had known him for many years. and was-. mere highly -prized than a nomination for Congress. it was true. -as many in - this section had shamed. that Eastern Montana should have the Dele- fate now. Other sections had sent -time Delegate and had reaped immense local advantins-e.s- s but the're wag nht a . solitary mark of a Delegate's handiwork - within the boundaries of Madison County. We have not space to give a fuller re- port of Mr. Word's speech, but it was pronounced the best effort that gentleman ha.s ever made. In concluding Mr. Word said that it the time ever should come when h.. could respond to wishes of hitt Ieliotv-antiletia, he would rot he tardy in so doing -but nutil thsu lac 011;a\ sleeked I a comlau4a.ce ef that confidence. DEMOCRATIC TERRITuRIAL, CONVENTION. The Democratic Territorial Conven- tion will be held in the City of Helena, Lewis and.Clarke County, M. T., on the Etch day of July. 1874, for the purpose of nominating a Delegate to Congress. The Central Committee have readopt- ed the apportionment of 1872, as fol- lows: Beaverhead Choteati Deer Lodge .15 Gallatin 5 Jefferson • .. 6 Lewis and Clarke .15 Madison . 8 Meagher .. 5 Missoula 8 At the last Territorial Convention held at the City of Deer Lodge, the following resolution was adopted: Resolved, That hereafter in Territorial Conventions. no proxies or vote by proxy will be received, but that Delegates and Alternate Delegates shall be elected, and that in the absence of the farmer, of the latter shall be entitled to cast the vote.

To -day is the 98th Anniversary of our couotry's declaration ot a free existence amOng, the nations. Since July 4. 1776, the mpansion.prospetity and intelligence of this Republic has been a marvel -the contemplation of which has been the en- vy of the monarchies of the world. To our plan of free government, honest, for the most part, all our greatness is due. Freedom, free principles. and education, universally dillitsed, have made all this a living reality. From thirteen thinly pop- ulated Colonies the Union has come to consist of thirty-seven States, with three Territories, now clamoring for admission. Our material wealth has increased pro- portionately. Churches, school-hensea. and factors, everywhere dot the land, and are well supported, Railroads tra- verse and telegraph wires network the to a mountain. Add a mass or printed Republic. To -day the noon -day sell speeches made to order, and this is what WS done for cheap transportation. Civil service reform. after having served as a plank in the last Presidential platform, and as a delusion and snare for those excellent reformers who delight al- most as much in the name as they do in the substance, was slaughterea in the House with none so poor as to do it rev- erence. And as if to consult the eternal fitness of things, Mr. Butler was chosen for executioner. The much vaunted \Indian peace poli- cy of the President\ shared a shnilar fide. For four years it engaged the sym- pathy of philanthropic Militia. in spite of constant discoveries of rascality and ra- pacity. As long as the Commissianers held their places hope still clung- to this organized system of pltmder. They held on until forbearance ceased to be a vir- tue ; but at last the Secretary of the In- terior contrhed to force them out and clear the way for still greater Ii ands. Mr. Delano has succeeded in removing the obstacle to his venality. and his tools on the Indian Committee have gone the length of assailing the good name of the Commissioners. who gave their thne and CiarVies1 Lobliviu tut; wit/lout fee or re - - ward. At the outset there was a seeming rage for economy. The House cut down sal- aries, reduced appropriations. and ap- plied the retrenching axe with vigor. That enthusiasm soon died out, and was followed by a reaction which has ended by creating new and unnecessary offices. restoring in May the hig.h pay which was repealed in 3Iarch, mid in undoing all that was done in the first paroxysm of pretended reduction. The Senate ig- nored all the spurious reforuis, and then the House retreated under the lead of Mr. Garfield from' every position which it had originally assumed. The Salary bill was repealed by moral coercion and sorely from the fear of in- dignant constituemies. Very few sin- cere votes were cast on that side, and since then insidious eflorts have bee;: made to revive the frank iler privilege and other abuses which formed part of time corrupt system that the people demanded should be swept away. So, too, of the moieties. That concess- ion w s extorted from a reluctant Con- gress. and only yielded partially alter a determined resistance at every step in the Senate. The Sanborn contracts were swept awa3 because they were too rank and oflimsive for toleration. shines not on a single American slave - all are free. In view of all this -and much more here umnentioned-what may be expected when another like number of years have been added to ottr National ex- istence? Two years from to -day the country will be a -blaze with enthusiasm. It will be the 100th celebration of our anniver- sary of independence, and will be ex- ceptionally brilliant, and its observance will be impaiing. Cannon. accidents, flags, firesworks and spread-eagleistu Will abound on that day, anti all the pent-up patriotism of a cantary will be turned loose ia tha g.settest natioa =Jug na- tions. A heavy National debt hangs over us, anti is a galling burden on the energies ora free people. Despite this, when the sun hides hselt in the 1Vestern horizon. to -day, it will shed its declining rays over us, the happiest, and most prosper- ous of all nations. THE FR,E)I03 Gambetta. a few days ago, ascended the tribune in the French Chamber and stated that the Empire led France to Se- dan. No question could be raised as to the literal correctress of the assertion. But it tell like a bombshell in flirt as- sendslage. Members jumped to their feet and shook their fists in each other's faces. From the Chamber the excite- ment has spread to the people. Bona partists insult Gambetta wherever they tind him. One of them, it day or two ago, struck him across the face with a cane. The Republieans. on the other hand. are hunting the Bonapartists. Po- lice are necessary for the protection of the parliamentary trains. Even the troops have been called out for a similar purpose. This is the general and recog- nized method of bee - inning a revolution in France. And in this tendency to com- bustion comes the sharp wit of Theirs and intensity to the pasSion now ittrious- ly timing. There is no place where a %%laicism or an epigram tvill go further than in France. 'A sharp saying is al- most suffieent to overthrow a dynasty. It has long been the fashion to call the Septennate a truce to party for seven years. But the truce has been a hollow one. The Monarchists who have had eontrol of the Government since the over- throw of Theirs have been doing sll in their power to pay the way for the form of government which they favor. The truth of history requires the statement that the Republicans, while they hell the reins, were doing the _very same thing. But. just at the time that both parties, anal the country at large, were beginning to realize this litct, Theirs flung in his definition of the existing form of goy- I eminent. viz: the Deacon of Magenta. ' There is enough of truth in the designa- tion to tire the popular heart. The idea of the great Fiseich nation degenerathag into a duchy must be galling to the pa- triotic. It will be seen that the struggle now going on is confined exclusively to the Republicans and Bonapartists. The two branches of the Monarchists, the Le- gitimists, and the Orleimists, look on, possibly, in the hope that something may come out of the squabble which may be profitable to them. The Bonapart- ists are not strong, in the Assembly. Ian they probably control a majority 01 the army. '1 he police of Paris apaear like- wise to be on the same side. But how the French peasant -proprietors, who in fact wields the political power, stands, has not yet been determined. His leanings heretofore have been strongly toward the Empire. THZ FAILURE OF CONGRESS. From the New York Sun. • After a continuous session of .nearly seven months Congress is about to ad- journ without haying accomplished any one: of the objects ,which were most ur- gently demantledavhen it came together. Since the 1st of Deceiuber the whole time has been squandered in senseless gabble. and in proving the utter incompeteneY of the Republican, majority to deal with the probleius whiTclehave vexed , the public mind during This: periaatiuitleis Congress came together while the ef- fects of the financial crisis Wee still fresh ' and sorely felt. These was a cry for re- ' lisf from every psrt of the Union, intl. it ! was practicable and aaay of attainment, ' with the least sound statesmanship. In- stead of seeking to restore confidence and revive business by discreet legislation, quackery was subitittnevi for plain reme- dies and diluted discussion for efficient action. From the start a radical conflict of opinion upon what may be called the vital question of the day, was disclosed between the Republicans, of the East and West. They were separated by a great gulf. such as is seen to divide the plat- forms of the three Republican conven- tions which rssembled a few days ago in Indiana. Illinois. and Vermont. At first the President was broadly on the side of the inflationists, and went so far as to prepare a brief message approving the original bill. Suddenly he changed front under the manipulation of the bondhold- ers and present -givers ot Philadelphia, when the Executive pendulum swung over to the other extreme. Mr. Jones of Nevada. sitting in a puts, chased seat, became the oracle of the. White House, instead of Mr. Morton, who had hitherto shaped the policy of its in- cumbent. So that to make confusion worse confounded, the President and the majority in Congress. di s ided into lac - dons both claiming to represent the send ; went of the same party, find themselves fronting - in opposite directions, with tinkered compromise hanging imp lik Mithomet's coffin, as th i ere t s v tdtof p a rr longed controversy, aid hi,h in fe represents no principle that either side advocated when they parted company. So much for the currency question. Next in consequence and public inter- est was cheap transportation.. That was to be put through without de:ay, no mat- ter what else might be postponed. As a net result we have the report of a special committee of the Senate, which travelled the country over at the public expense, proposing variou; wild projects at a cost of tv o hundred millions, apparently de- signed to Intra•zs the agricultural interest with new burdens, and to open up a field for corruption, compared with which Credit Mobilier would be as a mite In abol-ishing the Washington Ring Government, which time country. ithout regard to party, demanded, the majority condoned the crimes and corruption, and with bated breath describeu the most daring frauds as -mistakes.\ Not one solid or honest reform has been adopted.
