Prom the Helena Free Frew*
At a special meeting of the
commercial club held Monday
night the following resolutions
were passed unanimously:
Resolved, That the Helena
'commercial club hereby requests
I the board of county commission-
ers of the county of Woods to
call an election to be held at the
same time as the coming gener-
al election, to vote upon the prop-
osition of establishing at or near
Helena, a county high school,un-
der the provisions of article ten
of the territorial school laws.
Realizing that, aside from the
general benefits which will ac-
crue to every part of the county
by reason of having a free high
school, Helena and the county
adjacent to it would derive espec-
ial benefits because of its loca-
tion at this point, we therefore
pledge to Woods county a fund
of t5,ooo to be used as the board
of trustees of the school dictate
in the building and establishing
of said school, provided a school
building be erected to cost the
sum of $15000.
We further pledge ourselves
that should the board of com-
missioners for reasons that seem
good to them, see fit to call the
election to establish such high
school at some other point in the
county than Helena, we will vote
for it and support it; for, while
for obvious reasons our first
choice is Helena, we are willing
to sink our personal wishes to
promote the common good of the

Annual Contest N- N. S.
Friday evening at the normal
hall occurred the last half of the
annual contest. During the de-
j Spring House
bate the reporter was first con- ^
vinced that the U. S. government 1
should not fortify the isthmus of ^ js at hand and many people are interest-

the negative convinced him
that U. S. should fortify the
canal. Messrs J. M. Kelso and
Rutledge were equally successful
in changing his mind twice more.
The judges then decided in favor
of Messrs J. M. Rutledge and
Wallace Wilmot the Occident
contestants; at last the reporter
was for ever convinced of the
advisability of the proposed for-
tification. After the debate Messrs
Lymon N. Rutledge and Claude L.
Scott entertained the audience
with song. The gentlemen were
both deserving of the point con-
tested; Since only one could win.
Mr. Claude L. Scott the Occident
won the point. The Piano solo
which was next contested by
Misses Ethel Grove and Petri
Buck gave the judges an oppor-
tunity to discrimnate between the
interpretations of two perfect
musicians to decide the point,
emagination must be called to use,
for technic and interpretation
could be excelled in neither case.

The City Tickets.
Three city tickets are now in
the field and there are strong,
able men on all of them. Any
voter acquainted with the candi-
dates ought to be able to make a
satisfactory ticket for himself
by a judicious selection from the
three tickets now in the field.
We publish the three tickets in
full this issue. The citizens
ticket was nominated Thursday
evening March 10. The Socialist
ticket Saturday evening March 12,
and the Peoples ticket, Thursday
evening March 17. The meeting
which nominated the last named
ticket was called by Mayor Cofield
and it looked as though the entire
male population of the city had
turned out; there being about 200
present. The probate court room
was crowded almost to suffication.
Col. W. W. Campbell was called
to the chair and by the use of his
powerful lungi and a big hickory
cane he soon produced order out
of chaos and everything moved
off smoothly. We are glad to see
that all classes are taking an act
ive interest in the coming elec-
tion, and we believe that the
officials elected will represent
not only the best business inter-
ests of the city, but the moral
interests as well. Alva, with
her large public school and great
