wrong-doer, the. silence of opponents or the
.plaudits of the unthinking multitude, then
our course is plain. It is to tell the truth
in its entirety, aA to enforce our state
ments by our actions. If we remain qui
escent, we forfeit our claim to manhood,
and basely sacrifice our honoe to a tempo
rary and questiobhle advantage. In en
tering upon our duty at this crisis, we have
determined to blink no question that seeks
its solution in the votes of the people at the
A party is organized in this Territory un
der the a.sumed name of Democrats, whose
object is to oppose the government of the
the United States ; to pleaee in our councils
4nen disaffected towards the nation, under
the shadow of whose banner they rest un
molested, and to send to Congress a Del
egate whose election as the nominee of that
party, could they but succeed in their
schema, would render him as utterly una
ble to fulill his mission, as a Fcejee Is
lander or Minnesota Sioux. We denounce
the attempt as unworthy of any man, more
especially of a soldier, and many such we
know are here.
Let us reason this matter out, Two par
ties are contending for the mastery in open
war: the North had the South-all south
ern advocates say, two sATroNS. It follows
then, that any southern refugee or partizan
is, according to his own showing, voting as a
citizen in a foreign land with which his own
is at war. Let not our southern neighbors
get angry while disavowing such a purpose.
Well we know that scores, nay hundreds of
men will vote the Union ticket here, who
have risked their all, like men, in a manly,
though we.say a, mistaken, way, to support
their opininon on their own native soil. No
Federal bayonets Coerce them here; why
not leave it so, and vote right, or stay at
home? These men long for a disr.ption
of the.peace of this Territory, :or they are
blind if they do not see it must eventually
follow their opposition to the government.
This Territory is not southern ground,
and cannot be, in any event. So long as
the inhabitants live peaceably here, all
know they are free to do so, and sit under
the shadow of their own vine: and fig tree,
none daring to make them afraid, and that
even when they have borne arms against
this very people; but, if forgetting the old
saw, " Never scorn the bush that hbields
you," they seek to inaugurate in this place
a ccrusade against the national authorifies,
of course they dare the government to a
contest, the issue of which is not doubtful
to the most zealous friend of Jefferson
Davis that ever sung to the tune of "The
soldier Tired," "He who fights and runs
away," &c., &c.
We are well assured (not mentally only,
but actually) that many a brave man speaks
thus-" I did my best for my State and for
the South, and I don't regret it, but here I
live in peace, as well treated as if I was a
true built Yankee, and I wont meddle where
I must dishonor myself, without even serv
ing the cause I have at heart." Such men
have seen war, and they don't want it in
Montana-nor do they wish to introduce the
jarring element of strife, among brothers
and friends without aim or object.
We speak thus to manly foes, whose hon
or is dear to them. We are as widely as
sunder as the poles, in the great question
North or South ? but here, with 1,600 miles
between us and the field of slaughter we
can afford to cry truce, forget the past and
hope for the future.
To the,Copperhead who sets his foot down
square against the land of his birth, we
hold other language. Does he think the
southern people care for him? Yes; as
much as the true soldier does for the de
serter. The Union they hate, but ihe Cop
perhead they use and despise, as one who
" makes I dare not wait upon I would."
We well know what a host of mistakes are
being made in political calculations here,
and bow many, who are counted as sure
South as Mobile, will be found voting for
the Union ticket in I Montana, while ten
times the nuonber will follow the example
of the .Iiehman. who made his fortune-
theywill mind their own business asa not
meddle where they can only cut of their
o~in doses to spite their own faces.

was a unanimous vote for W. F. Sanders.
On motio.nof Col. Nelson, the ballot was

Mr. Sanders was then called before the
convntion and addressed the delegates in
a forcible and eloquent speech, which was
greeted wjth loud applause.
The committee on resolutions reported
the followipg, which were read by the See
This convention of .ion p;en of Xontana Ter
lst. That no philanthropic or selfsh interest of
any portion of our people, demands the ieparation
of. the American Republic, or the overthrow of the
government; but we are urged by every punsidera
tion that can actuate mankind, to insist that in the
future, as in the past, there shall be within the limits
thereof, but one fla-, one country and one destiny.
!d. That the sobisers and seamen of the Repab
hio, who, amid carnage and sufering, bearaloft her
banners with such unfaltering devotion and.faith.
have written wibh their swonrd a n or c.u:rage
worthy of their ancentral fame, and have indelibly
impressed upon the pagr of history, a charncter
worthy of the high heroic days. In their entire
maccess, so fully promised by recent events, we joy
fully hail the prospects of an early peace founded
in right'ousne.ss. While devotion to duty, true
manhood, courage, and a gener fus sacrifice of self.
for the good of ali are regauded !is v;rtues, while Lib
erty is loved and Truth revered, their names will be
held in grateful rembranc.
3d. That the Missouri and Yellowstone rivers,
penetrating the veoy heart of our Territory, ought'
to be surveyed and their navigation so improved
that they may become the great bighways of com
merce, furnishing, near our own doors, every com
modity we need, at a.emall advance upon the cost
thereof in the cities of the ease.
4th. That the legislation contemapl:ated by the
bills introrlucel into Congress by Me.srs. Ferni~i.do
WYood and H. P. Bennet, and now pending before
Congress, is perhieious in the extreme, and is a well
aimed blow at the industry of our Territory, as well
as the bat interests of the nation,. and calls for the
indignant opposition of. all classes of our citizens.
5th. That the Indian title to our occuted lands,
as well as to lands in their vicinity, ought to be at
onc. extinguished; and that thu agricultural and
mineral lands, as well as town lots, should bese
cured to the occupants of the seine, without any
6th. That the Indian tribes now engaged in a war
fare u,,ninst the government, deserve and ought to
receive the severe,-t punishmbent and we are oppos
ed to any treaty of peace with them until we have
full indeunity for past barbarities and the amplest
security for the future safety of emigration and
mail-, upon all highways paaing through the In
7th. That our present mail router need radical
changes anl such extensions as will accommodate
all the settled portions of our Territory ; and that
economy. certainty and dispatch require that there
be established a direct mail route from the Missouri
river to the settlements within Montana Territory.
8th. That radical changes are demanded in the
laws concerning newspaper postage upon papers
coming to the inland Toeritories of the United
9th. That as labor and capital alone can develope
the immense mineral resour; of ournew '.e.itory
they should go hand is hand, and any theory which
seeks ortends to debase the dignity of lIbor, or to
displace the .aborer from his true position as the
creator of .rur n.salth, iade:ecud to none in social
position or usefulness,deserves our severest coudem
l0th. That, as this Territory i. the youngeet child
of tho United States Governmeait and largely
dependent upon its parent fo" the aid, protection
and supplies necessary to bi ng to maturity its rich
and vast mineral and agricultural resouics, it can,
therefore, be regarded as nothing short of suicide to
to send any other than a true and reliable Union
man to represent us in the national congress.
On motion of 1M.r Thompson, a contral
committee, to consist of nine persons from
different parts of the Territory was ap
pointed, as follows : M. H. Lott, Col. J.
A. Nelson and U. G. Bissell of Madison,
L. A. Gridley and L. C. Miller of Beaver
Head, A. Ackerman and T. J. Merrill of
Jefferson, E. B. Johnson of Missoula, and
M. Carroll of Choteau.
On motion of Mr. L. C. Miller, it was re
solved that the parties constituting the
central committee be notified and author
is"d to perform all and every act necessary
for such a committee,
Mr. A. W. Hall of Beaver Head, in
troduced the following which was passed
RESOLvDn, That in presentinO the name of W.
F. Sanders as a candidate to be supported by the
Union men of this Territory as Delegate to Con
greM we are well assured that we are pre-enting the
nama of one whom we can recommend to all Union
men without distiaction a to former political pro
clivities, a one wellworthy of thesupport of all per

iumulfied, and the dignity of the American people
