It is certainly a pleasure to read!
the way the silk lint brigade are
stirred up in Livingston because the
proletarian class there saw fit to not'
get some old lat.r skate to orate
there at the Labtr day celebration.
I well remember )f one celebration
on Labhor day tha I attended there,
when a big bloke hat held a fat job
in the national heidquarters of one
of the leading unious and as rotten
a dlrtunken spouter as he was he was
a howling success, and as to say any
thing that was of any benefit to the
laboring class, he was a total fail
ure, but his spotting was very ac
'eptable to the employing class.
The Enterprise had a perfect right
to criticize any speaker or any as
sertion made by 4nyone, but to wil
fully and maliclously pervert and lie
about any addreps or speaker any
editor deserves tS have his rotten,
c'ontemptible sheed placed on the un
fair list and kept there.
'lTh EnterDris4 is like 'Tanlac
Rill" Campbell's tag. In publishing
anything about tMh farmers or organ
ized labor he alvkys makes out to
go the Assoclated Press dispatches
two or three shads worse in falsi
fying the facts. A God knows the
Associated Press d patches are rot
ten onough to stin to high heaven.

on his front page Sept. 30, represent
ing the consumer being clubbed by
the union men. Such a cartoon is an
insult to every true American citizen
and any cartoonist that will put. out
such an insult, or any publisher that
will publish it, shows conclusively
that they are the tools of big biz and
will stoop to any infamy to serve
their masters. But, after all, that's
in keeping with all the other dope
that "Tanlac Bill" puts out.
The time is not far distant when'
union printers and other union mem
bers that are identified with the
daily papers will do like they did in
Canada last spring; namely, refuse
to handle their lies.
For the past two years if any farm
er. worker or producer criticized big
ibiz or any of their lickspittle tools,
!he was disloyal. ostracized, damned,
and sometimes beaten, murdered, or
thrown in prison at the instigation of
the silk hat brigade. They consider
that big biz and the robber profiteer
are the government, and some people
are either foolish enough or smart
enough to think they are the govern
ment. Well, the imperialistic league
of "notions" is strongly backed by
the International Bankers & Sharks
union. All the big biz profiteers and
their prostituted press are strong for
it. If Secretary of State Lansing tes
tified to the truth before congress
the famous "14 points" that the
prostituted press nearly bawled their
heads loose about have gone glim
mering. I think we can soon look
for Secretary Lansing's resignation.
The last session of the Montana
legislature was one of the rottenest
sessions ever held in any state, but
all honor to the little band of N. P.s
that stood by the people even if they
were in the hopeless minority. The
session called under the hypocritical
pretext to "assist," the dried-out
farmers to tide over the winter and
prepare to raise a crop in 1921. Then
play politics, smash the primary law,
put on two additional supreme court
judges, and the dry land farmers
could go to---well, as one of the silk
hat tools of big biz said, "they did
not want the farmers in Montana any
The investigation of the H. C. of L.
is another snide trick that they pre
tended to pull off. Sent a bunch of
profiteers out to "investigate" other
profiteers. Why, that would cause
the sphinx to smile. And just like
all the spouting done at Washington.
D. C., about "investigating" the H.
C. of L., the prostituted press says
they have "got evidence in lots of
cases of rank profiteering." Well,
I guess they got the evidence, and
are keeping it in cold storage prob
ably; at any rate, there are only a
very few who have been prosecuted,
and they are generally some of the
little 2x4 business parasites. They
rarely get any of the higher-ups.
What will an outraged people finally
do if present conditions are kept up
a few months longes? Yes, what
will they do?
It may start a conflagration that
will be hard to control and some.
thing that no true American wishes
to see. It looks like we are sitting
on the crater of a volcano, and in
saying this 1 am only quoting the
ideas and opinions of some able and
true American citizens.
With best wishes for the Bulletin,
and long may it live and force the
light of truth in all the dark places,

Toston, Oct. 1, 1919.
Editor Butte Bulletin:
I am informed upon very reliable
authority that the merchants' divis
ion of the Employers' association
held .t meeting Tuesday night of last
week and another Thursday evening,
for the, purpose of cussing and dis
cussin.t the public market estab
lished by the Bulletin and the Con
sumners' league. I am also advised
that they consider the Consumers'
league, a Montana corporation. a
menace, and that action should be
begun by the proper officials toward
provi:ig restraint of trade--restraint
of the trade of wholesalers and re
tailers in fruit, produce and other
perisablcs sold at the city market.
Thb,Ž league scored in the first in
ning with the Merchants' association
in its disapproval of the market mas
tcr---a member of the Grocers' as
sociation- -making itself a further
menace and restraining the big in
terests--although to date the whole
salers have had the best of the deal
at the market.
Members of the Consumers' league
visited the state fair at Helena for
the purpose of organizing the farm
ers, and others are visiting the vari
ous county fairs for the same pur

Today We Celebrate
Cosimo de Medici.
If you were asked to name your fa
vorite century, what would your an
swer be? And why? These are in
teresting questions. Each of the cen
turies is marked by special promi
nent features of development. Each
has set its own serious stones in the
building of time. The fifteenth cen
tury is not the writer's favorite cen
tury, but it was a spacious epoch, of
tremendous production, and thrilling
with great names. In the fifteenth
century, 1434, the Medici family, led
by Cosinto de Medici (elected chief
ruler in 1426) became prominent in
Florence. Today, Oct.. 4, celebrates
Cosimo's re-entry into Florence in
1434, Cosimo the Elder, from exile,
when he was received with exuberant
demonstrations of joy. Now prince
of the state, he! He was called pater
It was the period of the Great
Renaissance in Italy-the rediscov
ery and renewal of Greek literature,
and Florence was the center of the
Renaissance. It was the period
when art and architecture flourished,
when name after name arose like a
star-never to set; when the build
ings that we bow down to today
soared against the blue southern
noon. Venice was at her zenith, and
the focus of the commerce of Europe.
It was the century of the invention
of printing, and of the burning at the
stake of Savanarola; it was the cen
tury of the martyrdom of Joan of
Are, and of the discovery of Amer
ica; of the conquest of Granada, and
the expulsion of the last Moorish
king. It was a great period of Mo
hammedan architecture in the east;
and of the fall of Constantinople to
Ottoman supremacy. The Medici
family that ruled in Florence was il
lustrious not only for its statesmen,
and the popes which it gave to the
Vatican, but for its magnificent pat
ronage of letters and art. The origin
of the family seems buried in obscur
.ty. But the real founder of the
Medicean greatness was Giovanni dei
Medici, who made an immense for
tune by trade. Cosimo the Elder was
Ais son, who, by his financial ability.
greatly increased the wealth of hi.
family. Banished to Venice through
:he jealousy of the oligarchical party.
we have seen that he re-entered Flor
rnce in triumph in 1414. Till hih
leath in 1464 he was "the uncrowned
king of Florence."
Wisely and well did he direct her
destinies; for it must be remembered
that at this era Italy was a map
yvork of separate and distinct repub
:ics, and the tide of jealous factions
:an high from Sienna, and from Luc
:a, to the city on the Arno, Fiesole.
F'lorence the Lily. Though not a
;chiolar himself, Cosimo de Medici
lad a profound love of letters and
irt. His agents visited the east, Con
mtantinople, Greece, the Levant, to
:ecure manuscripts of the Greek and
¼atin writers which were transcribed
by his staff of copyists. and made
available for the use of scholars.
Cosimo the Elder showed royal gen
nrosity in his expenditures for the
iromotion of letters and the fine
arts. He built the basilica of Fie
sole, and of St. Lorenzo, and en
larged the church and monastary of
St. Mark. The artists of the period
included the great names of Dona
tello, Brunelleschi, Luca del Robbis.
He founded the Platonic academy in
Florence, which was to play an im
mortant role in the history of Italianl
philosophy and letters. Cosimo died
at the age of 75, while he was listen
ing to one of the dialogues of Plato.

intended it should be, for there is
plenty of fruit, produce, butter, eggs.
etc., rcady for shipment here at the
right Irices, and if the proper per
manentl market is not arranged for
immediately its death notice should
be mailed to the mayor and markec
manager, for the women, the goods
and the prices are here.
Referring to the article headed,
"Choose the Man," I say I would
choose Marmorale. I couldn't trust
a man like Lamb. According to his
record, he is worse than a slacker;
he is worse than a pro-German. He
should be put out of office and given
a pick and shovel and put to work
on the section and Marmorale made
judge. for Marmorale is the more
patriotic and loyal citizen.
Mr. Lamb would undoubtedly look
better sweeping the streets than sit
ting on a judge's bench.
