L With the Editors
Tly papers state that Chancellor
Elliort when asked for a statement
regarding the Levine case declined
to discuss the subject or rather, he
dodged the discussion by turning his
attention to the new $100,000 build
ing which is soon to be erected. All
good citizens will rejoice that the
university is to have a new building.
Such a building is sadly needed. But
Chancellor Elliott does not interpret
aright the sentiments of the students,
alumni and faculty of the university
nor of the real friends of the institu
tion, if he thinks that the removal of
Professor Levine for fear of offend
ing the big corporations of Montana,
as was indicated by tile ehaneellor in
his letter to Professor Levine, can
be justified by thoe ericion,. of a
$100,000 building on the campus.
All the real friends of the university
would rather see professors and stu
dents occupying huts or tents and
living in the free air of truth and
honor than to see them occupying
marble halls and living in the tainted
air of corruption and cowardice and
crawling at the feet of impudent and
tyrannical masters of big business.
We are t.ot especially interested, in
Professor 'Levine as an idividual.
although we consider him a learned
and capable professor, but are in
terested, and we think the people of
Montana are interested, in knowing
whether our professors of political
economy are to teach the truth or
whether they are to teach such prin
ciples of taxation as may be accept
able to the attorneys of the Anaconda
Copper company and Senator William
The Nation puts the case squarely
when it declares that an institution
that would remove a professor for
writing such a Book as "'The Taxation
of Mines in Montana" is not a. univer
sity but a private institution.
In his address to the teachers as
sembled at the university, according
to our daily pape.r' C l-j ccllor El
liott spoke as folloS : Y! have often
wondered if thWl-idea 4C-yoagUensa
tion is the real feasun tfO."4 lack

teachers do not respect their pro
The chancellor is probably right.
Teachers do not respect their pro
fession as they should. And yet,
teaching is the great profession, or
at least ought to be, because the real
teacher should always have as his
main purpose the training of the
youth of the nation, the spread of
enlightenment, the inculcation of
those high principles which alone
make a people great and worthy. It
is our belief that teachers fail to
respect their profession, not alone
because their pay is small, but main
ly because they feel that they may
become the mere hirelings of political
boards. Certainly, no professor can
cherish proper respect for himself
or for his profession, or hope to win
the respect of his students and of the
public so long as he lives in fear of
the high-handed action of presidents
and deans and chancellors and boards
who acknowledge no god Out mioue.
power. Professors and students who
feel that Mr. Levine was thrust from
his profession not because of the
interest of the people but the interest
of the Wall street financiers demand
ed it, can cherish no proper respect
for an institution that is forced to
commit an act so deadening to the
moral sense of its students. Give to
the teachers that liberty and inde
pendence which ought to be the birth
right of every American and they
will respect themselves and their
profession no matter how meager
their pay. Give them large salaries
and buildings of granite or marble
and force them to feel that they are
the hirelings of corrupt and greedy
men and you take front them the
most precious possession of a real
teacher, unwavering devotion to
truth, that intellectual integrity
which should be the first article in
the creed of every scholar and of
every gentleman.--New Northwest.

Is it possible that our "divinely
appointed" Methodist leaders are be
ing blinded by. the god of mammon
in the centenary movement now on
in this country? John R. Mott, the
leader of the Y. M. C. A., also the
active spirit in this centenary move
ment, says "that all the leaders may
be the chosen of God and empowered
by him" for this service; that the
plans are inaugurated and carried
through in obedience to the will of
God so the campaign may enrich the
church. That then .when the new
spiritual conquest is inaugurated,
having prayed, we will co-operate
with 'od to the achievement of big
political, social, moral problems as
outlined in the program of the Y.
M1. C. A.
How strange! Is it possible that
our "divinely appointed" leaders are
going to quit preaching hell-fire and
damnation to our souls and try a
new method of bringing us to the
"mourners' " bench-and to make
us obedient and willing servants in
gathering the sheckles for mammon?
Up to now we have accepted their
preachments because these leaders
were "divinely appointed"--at least,
they claimed they were.
However, this "divinely appointed"
scheme has had a severe shake-up
when our boys went over the top for
democracy. "Me and Gott" had to
flee to Holland in fear and trembling;
Czar Nicholas, the "divinely appoint
ed" head of the Russia church, inad
vertently lost his appointment and
several others of the "divinely ap
pointed" also went into the discard.
Church organizations, all "divinely
alppointed" are shaking to their very
foundations by the force of the new
religion, democracy, the religion
without churches. And the end is
not in sight. Now we find the "di
vinely appointed" leaders rushing
into public print to inform the read
ers of the old power of "divine ap
pointment," thus showing cupidity
as well as hypocrisy. These "divine
ly appointed" leaders realize that a
light is shining into the conscious
ness of mankind and they hope to
delude thi m.i.ses of church-goers
into the belief that the light shines
only through the "divinely appoint
ed" of the organized churches-in
other words, through "churchanity,"
which, in reality, represents but an
infinitismal portion of the church
The Christ is rising through the
labor..eopleof the whole earth. And
nowhere is it so evident as the cen
ters of revolution in Europe. There
the masses have risen in their might
to clean away the destructive power
of autocracy-they are driving out
the money changers and "divinely
An article appeared in the Satur
day Evening Post, of last June, writ
ten by a Russian princess. This article
told of the revolution in Petrograd,
among other things the princess said,
'"Terror stricken we hid in a hotel
thus hoping to evade the mob. Our
servants had all joined the revolu
tion, the jails were thrown open, the
soldiers and sailors and police were
with the new army. My children and
myself, with one loyal maid servant,
hid in the hotel with drawn blinds
and afraid to speak. Millions of peo
pie were moving through the streets.
I could not stand the temptation to
disguise myself and go down on the
streets and mingle with the crowds.
When I saw the light in their faces
and felt the religious atmosphere all
around I rushed back to our room
and taking my. children in my arins
I assured them and my faithful maid
that we had nothing to fear from the
mob." Even this terror stricken
princess responded to the spirit of
Christ shining upon the faces and
into the hearts of the millions of
Russians moving, moving, moving in
the streets of the great city, along
the abode of czars, Russian nobility
and the money changers.
Our own William Thompson said
about that same crowd: "I welcome
the day when we shall see such peace
ful gatherings in our own beloved
country. And out of the spirit born
anew in him, that day, he gave $1,
000,000 to the Russian people to help
them in their struggle against tilhe
"divinely appointed" rulers of their
country. The god of mammon ruled
in Russia; he was enthroned in the
palace, the courts, the churches. All
had to crumble to make room for the
new spirit that had been develop
ing in the hearts of the people. And
that spirit moved the masses to rise
up and remove them all to make
room tor the new order-the closes
kinship of all the peoples, all races.
Whose blood is soaking the fields
of Europe? Is it the blood of the
"divinely appointed" rulers? Nay,
it is the masses given as a sacrifice
for the stupidity with which they
permitted the rule of the god of
mammon. But this blood is sacred
to democracy, sacred because ot i
the races of the earth have won their
opportunity to forever cast aside tllu

message to this, his own country, but
the profiteers demanded that he he
silent. But in that new Russia he is
revered as a "friend of the people."
Brotherhood without creed, caste,
race or color is the message of the
new order. And throughout tlhe
whole world this is voiced by the
nations-that is the people within
the nations, but not by the "divinely
appointed" rulers. It means "no coin
mercialized nations to rule or to slave
and sweat for other nations." It
means a revolution in industry -a
revolution of methods whereby the
worker will produce for all and not
for greed--the "divinely appointed"
of the god of mammon.

these valiant men scourge these
money changers and drive them out
of the markets and the churches of
the nation? It is in the power of the
women to do this---let us arise and
smite them! These money changers
are against the power of women; they
look on it as their greatest menace.
What place do they allow women in
the churches; in the government,
city or national? Will we never awak

these facts? They all tell us "pray,"
"work," "breed children." Yes, the
god of mammon needs them all--
prayer, work, children-in war. We

The centenary movement plans lo
do away with the old doctrine of
"hell-fire and brinxstone" and in
augurate the new one of "100 per
cent efficiency among the workers."
The church organization is to be
made into a "great dynamic power to
teach the masses endurance, pati
ence, thrift, prayers and obedience."
It means that the workers are to be
drawn more closely into line to pro
duce more and greater wealth, not
for the workers, but for the prof
iteers. Those who speak for this cen
tenary movement insist on their need
of $105,000,000 to rehabilitate the

Yet, the Christ had not where lo

The god of Mammon has his
clientele in the "divinely appointed"
rulers, whether styled priests,
pmeachers or kings, who worship at
the shrine of the god-of-gold yet call
themselves the chosen of Christ.
Christ who was crucified because he
taught the brotherhood of Man.

Much interest is aroused in the ap
pointment of a new city physician
It is most unfortunate that tile
public health welfare cannot be sep
arated from politics. This is such
an important office that in filling it
the mayor should be left entirely free
from the suggestion of doing so by
the paying of a political debt.
Le us hope he will appoint a phy
sician of well known ability in pro
tecting a city's health and in safe
guarding the city's milk supply.
The mothers of the city are very
much aroused about the possibility
of using this appointive office for
politics only. If the proper advances
are made we believe the choice of a
good physician can be had-regard
less o>f party politics.
Even the most egotistical of re
publicans must acknowledge their
inability to elect a ticket without the
help of nonpartisans. As the non
partisans comprise a big majority of
the voters of this community, any
appointment made by the new mayor
cannot fail to be of deep interest to
The office of city physician is espe
cially so to the mothers, who hope
this office will be filled by a physi
cian of experience and standing.
Nothing could be more deplorable
than to use this office in payment of
a political debt-fancied or real.
