MORE AID FROM MR. McINTOSH.
As a ready letter writer, Mr. John HI. Mclntosh is without a
peer, but how he finds time to take care of his voltuminous cor
r'espondence in the short inltervals between refereeing prize
fights. writing sport news for a tmrning paper, making
speeches about the No.nparl.isan league. the 1. AV. RV. and Bhoul
shevism, managing the Associated lndustries-whalever Ithat
is---and attenlding conventlions, is a mysecry that will probably
never be solved.
Some of Mir. Mcllltush's literalure has lutely been received
in Idaho Falls, Ida.
Only by a f'ortunate combilnli oif t'circumstances were the
citizens of Idaho Falls afforded this treat as the following clip
ping from the )it ily Post oi' that city explains::
ATTACK ON EMPLOYERS IS BRANDED AS FALSE.
Source of Article Circulated Here Is Shown to Be Organ
of Most Radical Elements.
In whlat is believed by members of the local employers'
association to be an efforlt to( discredit that association,
copies of the Butte 1)aily Bulletin were distributed in
idaho Fulls Saturday, carrying headlines to the effect that
the Montanat associalion does int meet with alpproval at
Billings. To seek the trutlh regarding such statements,
President J. E. Pike of the loeal employers' associationl
wired J. H. MnelIIosh, secretary of tihe Montana Associated
Industries, asking if the statementl was correct.
In reply Mr. Mclntlosh advised the local association that
the Bulletin is the official organr of the 1. W. W\. and the
most radical elements, atnd is supported by radicals and
socialists. lie adv-ised tIhat its editor, also manager, are
now under itnditeent fore selition. lReferring to tihe
article in qluestion, lie said: "'The article referred to is
false as is every other statement ever' published in it
against organized employers. All (illings' respectable
element is solidly belind lthe association. l In the future,
please do not ask me conc('erning the truth Ipublished Iby

the Bulletin. If you really want references would sug

Mayor Stodden of Butte, or any bank president of Butte,

Just why Mr. M('lctosh should feel rilled upon to stale thai

is something we cru.noit fathot, for, of course, what Mr. Mc
Iritosh calls the "reslectable" element- --the profiteering gaing
--are always behiind tile employers' association; if tlhey were
niot. Mr. McIntosh would lnot. get paid every Saturdaly.
President Pike of ithe Idaho Falls Emploliyers' association is
evidently somewhat of it humorist: his qu ain t. idea of writing
to John to f'indt out how ,lohn's meal licket. stacks up with the
public is certainly original; if we remember correctly, the
kaiser always said the (ierimani army was lthe greatest in the
We cannot agree w\iih John That the good Americans ignore
the Btulletin, because we knlow that John is a. good American ---
lie says so himself---an~d while lie may not, like the Bulletin he
doesn't ignore it. Not so you rtilt notice it; he ignores lthe I1l1
letin like the Bulletin ignores the employers' associatiotn, if you
get what we mean; that's why he wrtote the laudatory epistle
to his co-w\-orker in Idaho Falls.

as indicted for seditiion. Mr. like should have been told this,
but as the circulation of the lillotinri is rapidly increasing in

ltie information through this medium.

This column is conducted to'
and ritten by Bulletin readers
If you have any suggestions to of
fer for the betterment of condi
tions in which the public in inter
"sted, the Bulletin offers you this
opportunity for their expression
and interchange of comment with
your neighbors and friends.
Properly to protect this .Open
Forum, all communications must
be signed with the name and ad
dress of the writer, but anony
mous signatures will be used in
the column if requested. Address
all communications to the editor
of the Bulletin and please be brief
and to the point.
As they say in lodge meeting, "we
have with us Mr. So and So, from
whom we would be pleased to hear."
It is probable some such thought was
running through the Standard re
porter's mind, when seeking items,
which provided favorable opportun
ity for the arch political doctor of
Silver Bow county to get a little free
advertising in the guise of showing
off the wonderful work in preserving I
he people's health that has been
done by the county board of health.
Reference is made to Dr. P. 1. Mc
Carthy, chairman (to give him a lit
tle more advertising), the one of
whom it has been said he can gel
anything he wants in Silver Bow
county in a political way.
Lest we forget his political abili
ties, let us remember before he per
cormed that patriotic duty of enlist
ing in the Ui. S. army, which he
waited to do until the war had
:eached a safe basis, where the like
lihood of appearing on the front was
remote, he was secretary of the Sil
ver Bow county democratic commit
tee. Your readers will be able to
see by this brief outline what al
strong position he is in in order to
further the interests of that great
imonopoly, the American Medical as
sociation. and also to look after the
very vital interests of the serum
manufacturers, which is always part
)f the allopathic doctrine.
Now, behold, gentle readers of the
Bulletin, you can rest assured from'
now on that the chances of you get
ting the flu this winter and it prov
ing serious are very remote, as the
aforementioned health board is ready
to handle any outbreak. Prophecy ist
made that it will return in mild
It's the same old stcry with these
organizations, for which the people
pay dearly, always peddling the fear
of disease and its suggestion. In
other words, always commercializing
and drumming up disease in order
that the dollars may roll their way.
An avenue must also be provided
for the use of that serum which the
Mtate board of health is fooling with.
so that after it has been experiment
'd with sufficiently on the public to
determine its worth and the results
:h, l,1m cl'oirlpe th,. n thHt it is worth
manufacturing, then the serum man
ufacturer will step in for his pelf.
If the flu does not promise the
proper amount of stipend this win
ter, of course, the redoubtable doctor
can then fall back on vaccination of
helpless school children in order to
promote business. Probably this
may not start another outbreak of
scarlet fever, but then it may start
tetanus, or diphtheria, or any other
disease, which will prove just as
This same fear furnished the good
doctor the chance to keep the tax
payers' noses to the grindstone by
his defense of the retention of those
other useless appendages of these
county boards, viz. their employes.
In line with this same policy the
venereal disease clinic was also kept
open. Well. it is quite fitting, prob
ably, that this is done, but it would
be more just were the expense of its
maintenance shoved onto the doc
tors themselves, as their advocacy of
aompulsory vaccination has done
-nore for the promotion of this dread
:courge of mankind than anything
In proof of my contention are the

TO ATTORNEY GENERAL PALMER,
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE,
WASHINGTON, D. C.
Dear Sir: Montana is now and has been since the beginning of
the world war in the grasp of a group of profiteering wholesale and
retail dealers in foodstuffs and other necessities, including coal. Prices
have been arbitrarily advanced by the dealers to the stage where the
incomes of the working people are inadequate to permit of the pur
clause of sufficient necessities to keep body and soul together, and
promises of further increases are made. Our state officials, who have
given evidence that they are in league with the food and coal pirates,
have failed to give us relief, and we now look to your office to come
to our assistance.
As your United States district attorney for Montana you have E. O.
Day, a self-confessed bribhe-taker and a notorious friend of the inter
ests which are now guilty of profiteering. Mr. Day has not only sig
nally failed to take action against the profiteers, but seems to be ex
tending them every protection in his power.
As the result of the continued increases in price and the inactivity
of our. state officials as well as Mr. Day, we demand that you, in the
interests of the people of the state of Montana. and to the end that
the present reign of the plnnderbund in this state be ended, immediate
ly discharge E. C. Day from the office of United States attorney for
the district of Montana and replace him with some one of integrity who
will follow your orders and the wishes of the people and prosecute the
food hoarders and the profiteers.

FAMOUS WOMEN t
The comedy that was felicitously
presented a season ago written
around the life of George Sand, was
scarcely fair to her, though highly
entertaining. George Sand, like the
genius, had her foibles, but she was
a great brain. In her veins was the
blood of kings and heroes, so, na
turally she was highly romantic
and gathered into her category of
passions the names of famous men
of her time-the blazing epoch of
genius when Hugo, Balzac, De Mus
set. Dumas, were at their zenith.
Chopin and De Musset were George
Sand's adorers. Her real name was
Mine. Aurore Lucelie Dudevant. As
the author of "Consuele," "Lelia,"
"Valentine," she has a sure niche in
the hall of fame. Her morals could
bhear reproof; she seemed to exact
and excite love without loving. That
she turned her varied amatory ex
periences into "copy," may or may
not he true. That she was ai in
spiration to gifted men is an estab
lished fact. The perfect Nocturnes
of Chopin arose, in large measure,
from his sorrows and joys with
George Sand. She made £40,000 by
