It was our worthy
* * *
Who told the senate committee
* * *
What terrible folks
Those bolsheviki are.
He was giving a BAIL
* *~ *
On Christmas eve, lie said,
AFTER the Revolution,
And he had invited
* * *
Many ancient notables,
OFFICERS and NiOBL)LES
* * *
Of the old regimste
* * *
(I wonder Wi1'y
The AMERIC *N ambassador
Considered it his job
* * *
To deal with NOBLES
Who were DEPOSED
Instead of with the actuol
But, anyway, in some things,
He dealt with the soviets
For he was afriad of riot
* * *
He sent to the bolsheviki
For a GUARD.
And since the guard consisted
Only of PRIVATES
He put them in the kitchen.
* * *
But those bolsheviki soldiers
* * *
PEEKED through the doors
And saw the many officers
Wearing their epaulets
(Whatever those are)
And MEDALS and BADGES
*. * *
From the CZAR!
And so they summoned Francis
And said: "There is no more
* * *
A CZAR'S government;'
Do you not understand
* * *
It is AGAINST the LAW
* * .4
For any men to wear
* * *
We demand that they remove
* * *
These insults .to our country."
Now when Ambassador Francis
Reached this place in the tale
Old Senator Nelsonr
Loaned forward, very shocked,
* * *
"Did they actually say that,
* * *
Did they actually address YOU
Like THAT?" he said.
* * *
"They really did," said Francis.

How seemingly strange. but true it
is, that the gentlemen t t who shoul

that the black rag of the Montana Pi
rates' association is not a deccnt
In lat.t Sunday's edition of the
Whiner's red sheet, in its editorial
(?) columns, and under the heading
"Their Dirty Work." appeared an ar
ticle denouncing the Bulletin for
fearlessly giving the truth of a recent
murder, to its thousands of readers.
In part the article read as follows:
"No decent newspaper ever goes
beyond the actual official facts when
a man is arrested and actually
charged with a crime, for justice anu
decent newspaper ethics denanoi that
the man arrested be given absolutely
fair treatment at all time:-!
Without showing the least honesty (if
purpose, without asking the tiuthor
ities to make an investigation, triedi
to blast a man's reputation by accus
ing him ofii n1 a inous in
language that was typical of tle vi
viousness of the * * who 'indit
ed' the allegation."
Perhaps the said gentleman has
forgotten the incident of about a year
ago, when his beloved rag went be
yond the actual official facts, and
without showing the least honesty of
purpose, without asking the authori-I
ties to make an investigation, tpicd to
blast, and did, a muan's reputation by
accusing him of the heinous crime
of treason, in language that was typi
tal of the viciousness of the corpora
tion's dirty sheet. What the gentle
man means by "who 'indited,' per
haps lie mispelled 'indicted,' the alle
gation," we cannot comprehend, for
such ia conglomeration of words, mis
spelled though some are, cannot be
found in any work on English giam
mar or rhetoric.
But we do know this. that the dirty
sheet, which camouflages under the
guise of a newspaper. in assisting
some of the amalgamated gunmen to
obtain personal vengeance on 1-tarri
son J. Freebourn, one of Buttes
brightest and squarest young mei,
did blast Freebotirn's reputation, and
in a manner second to none in this
wide, wide world. Freebourn stied
this gentlemen, his accomplice in
crime, Dobell, and the beloved and
most honored pet of the working
classes' enemy, the black rag, for
$200,000 for libel. He also sued
"sticky-tingered and snake in the
grass" Jere Murphy and a few more
prostituted men of color and ill-fatme.
for $20,000 for false imprisonment.
Bpth of these cases will te tried be

that, in all justice and as an exam
ple to those of a kind, the plaintif
will be given a verdict of good and
Furthermore, we (lid not see our
honest (') county attorney conduct
ing an investigation of Freebourn's
case. Probably because his prin
ciples and views are not the same as
the chief of detectives, Morrissey.
And, in all justice to Freebourn, the
editorial writer knows in his own
mind that where Morrissey's reputa
tion to begin with was nothing, Free
bourn's was 100 per cent. Those of
the readers of the Bulletin who knew
Freebourn can vouch as to that.

Let us suppose a group of rival
manufacturers set out on an exten

the sale of Green's tooth powder.
They flooded the papers and mag
azines with full-page anonymous ad
vertisements stating that persons
who used Green's tooth powder
would destroy their teeth, ruin their
health, have their wages reduced, lie
dispossessed from their homes anti
have their daughters driven into
prostitution. Such is the peculiarityi
of human nature that a period of
such advertising would merely iousi'
a passionate interest in the masses of
the people about Green's tooth pow
der. People who never heard of it
before would begin to think and
dreim about it, and before long a
general discussion would grow as to
what persons were paying for the
hysterical advertising. and what their
motives were. And if the general
public eventually got to know that
some 150,000,000 persons in uni
other country were using Green 's
tooth powder exclusively, and appar
ently liked the brand. the result
could be imagined. As for Green,
the only thing he would have to
worry about would be his income tax
