TheVan for Monlana
Itis very probable that all the^Socialist Locals of the state of^Montana have received a letter from^our state secretary Win. II. Tierce^before this, asking them to furnish^the state ollice with the information^of what each Local can do toward^equipping the Van and also what^they can do in retard to keeping it in^the field, and it is to be hoped that^j the responses will bo many ami lib-^! eral.

Whereis Judge Cheadle At
Thosewho listened to Judge L.^K. Cheadle deliver his address at^Gilt Ldge the i ^th. at the Miners^union celebration, will, if they stop^to think, be constrained to ask^themselves the above ijuestion:^Where is Judge Cheadle At
Mr.Cheadle is supposed to be a^republican and is the present in^^cumbent of the office of district^judge at the hands of the republican^party. P.tit after a few preliminary^remarks in the opening of his^speech he plunged into the advo^^cacy, in no unmistakeable terms, of^the initiative and referendum^ And^the question arises how can a re^^publican advocate the initiative and^referendum^ And yet, why should^Judge Cheadle, a man whose intel^^ligence places him above the aver^^age, err with the ignorant and un^^read in economics by advocating a^Hein/e's exit from themining and measure that has proven useless

politicalring in Montana will mean^sad faces to many cheap lieutenants.
Itis a cinch that no such plat^^form as that one adopted at Chica^^go, will get through another Nation^^al Socialist convention.
TheWorker of New York appears^to be one of the strongly revolu^^tionary Socialist papers of the east.^Most of them are rather prone to^be conservative.
Thereappears to be two sides to^the Chicago Socialist trouble. The^News will soon have an article giv^^ing both sides of the attair by one^who is on the ground.
TheWestern l ederation of Min^^ers has again declared for Social^^ism; it would be better if the mem^^bership oi laboring wage slaves^would vote the Socialist ticket.
Thewhole trouble in Colorado is^due to the fact that the laboring^mules who voted a forty thousand^majority for an eight hour law rot*^ed the old party ites into power. A^little more bull pen and bayonets^and you fellow s will begin to awake.
Thelititte Local expects to secure^the servn es of Comrade Spargo of^New York to lecture on the streets^for some time during the summer^months. It would be well for the^comrades of the state to have him^make other points than Hutte. In^conjunction with the Hutte com^rades it is verv probable that such^arrangements could be made.
Theleading manufacturers and^all employers of labor in the United^States are being lined up now by^the citizens alliance and asked to^^ign an agreement accompanied^with a forfeiture of a ^5,000 bond
underthe present form of govern^^ment. The initiative and referen^^dum has failed in (^hio, Oregon ami^Colorado, and must fail in every^other state so long as the present^^jrStent exists. Did not the initia^^tive fail in Chicago where the peo^^ple voted to take over the street^railways, etc
Mefavored the referendum as a^safeguard against bought legislation^by corporations, and yet in the^opening of his address he contended^that there were not two classes, but^only one.
Asto the gambling law he con^^tended that the law could not be en-^forcod until the sentiment of the^community was back of it, and that^at the present it was not, but that^if any two men in the county really^desired to close gambling they could^do it. Now we all know better than^this. First, if it be true that the^sentiment of l.ewistown is in the^majority, in behalf of having a^^Midway Pleasance^ on Main street^then Cod pity the morality of Lew-^istown. Hut such is not the case.^The people have elected a lot of^useless officers who will not do their^duty, and until such time as officers^are put in these offices, who will do^their duty, no two men can stop^gambling.
Thiswhole procedure was too^well proven in the first start of any^real trouble in this county, when^A. T. Harvey and J. II. Walsh ca'l-^ed on the county attorney ami ask^^ed for a warrant of arrest of J. I).^W.iite on a charge of bribery.^Messrs. Harvey and Walsh insisted^on the case being brought direct in^the district court, but Judge Chea^^dle hat! the same brought in a lower^court, where all remember the Kan^^garoo proceedings. The votes were^bought and paid for, ami the proof^was hushed up in the trial by the^county attorney, who draws his
thaton and after election this com^iug November they will not hire any 1 salary from the tax payers
Hoesthis require more sentiment
Anotherone: The proceeding!^on the Al. Murphy bond have been^carried through for its collection^and we find on the court records^that the writ of execution has been^returned by the sheriff, not served.^Wily is this^ Hoes it need more^sentiment^ These people are good^lor this bond and why has it not^been collected as it should have^been^ Hoes the sheriff ami county^attorney need more ^sentiment^ in^order to attend to the duties of their^offices, which is their sworn duty.
Anotherone: Whiskey was bought^of throe druggists in this city and^not a single loophole left for them to^get out at. None of them had a^license; one case was tried before a^Kangaroo jury and acquitted; the^other two cases have never been^tried and the county attorney has^charge of them. Hoes this need more^^sentiment^ back of it, or does it^need a county attorney who is not^afraid to do his dutv
Asto the ladies who called on the^Judge, in his official capacity, prob^^ably knowing little about the law,^is. ertainetl that were they to pro^^ceed with the warrants of arrest for^some person for gambling, a second^arrest might follow at their own res^^idences.
Possiblythe Judge's address was^a good one considering that a polit^^ical campaign is coming on, ami that^he was talking to an audience of^laboring voters, and whose votes he^will need this fall to defeat the So^^cialist laboring nominee. However,^his use of the word agitator, repeat^^edly uttered in a sneering way, will^not have much impression with the^thinking people, who understand the^meaning of the word agitator; neith^^er will his attempted argument to^show that there are not two classes^weigh heavy in the scales of reason,^when he admits that he will not^argue the question as to how much^of the product of labor belongs to^the laborer. And yet, following this^assertion he claims to not believe in^confiscation nor anarchy. If labor^is not to receive the full product of^its efforts, and this is what Judge^Cheadle with all other republicans^stands for, then he must believe in^confiscation. If you are laboring^and do not receive the full product^of your toil, some one must receive^it, must they not^ Then he who^receives that portion of your labor,^w hether large or small, must have^confiscated it, has he not
Suchis the present system, ami^he who believes in a continuation^of the same cannot be opposed to^confiscation.
Andin conclusion let us say that^the sentiment has nothing to do^whatever with the closing of the^gambling in Fergus county. When^the people elect men to office w ho^are not owned body, soul and^breeches by the Fergus county bank,^men who are clean ami untrammel-^ed; men who will do their duty:^men who are not sworn deputy^sheriffs while under bonds on a^criminal charge; men who have the^moral courage of natural manhood;^then gambling will stop and stay^stopped according to the state law^of Montana.
TheMontana News challenges^Judge Cheadle, the republican par^^ty and its leaders with the democrat^party and its leaders, or possibly^more proper its followes, to turn two^county offices to the Socialists^county attorney and sheriff ami^we will guarantee you that gamb^^ling will be shut down here so close^that you will think it a strictly re^^ligious town, and the shut-down will^reach from the 400 tin horns to the^cheap crap shooters of the ^Nigger^^tenderloin district.
Sentiment,bosh! The people did^not elect these officers to fail to do^their sworn duty. They elected^them to do it, and they supposed^that they would do it if elected; but^the voter does not understand the^strings of the bank ring that con^^trols future elections of the old par^^ties.
Thosewho have believed that^Judge Cheadle was somewhat of a^sentimental Socialist, and especially^so after he delivered a Socialist^speech at the Jeffcrsonian banquet,^a queer incident we admit, can dis^^pel their minds of any such erron^^eous thoughts after listening to him

MontanaNews to be $1 Per Year
Thefirst trip made over the state^by Henry Lynch in the interest of^the Montana News has proven suc^^cessful, and our venture to reduce^the price from $2.50 per year to^Jli.oo per year, and print only four^pa-es. making them purely Social^^ism, we believe now is practically^btjPad the experimental stage.
Sometwo months ago the News^started the publication of a four^page paper to be circulated outside^of Fergus county and sold for $1.00^per . ^ar. In this undertaking and^effort Mr. Lynch made a short tour^of the southern part of the state,^and the result of his labor shows^I us conclusively that we have struck^upon the right proposition in mak^^ing the paper a four page, strictly^Socialist paper at $1.00 per year.
OnJuly the istornot later than^the 15th, during which time all sub-^1 scribers who subscribed at the old^rate, will be visited and collections^made, the price will be reduced to^Si.00 per year and also the size of^the paper in Fergus county will be^reduced to four pages, the four pages^' of patent print will be eliminated.
Allsubscriptions are supposed to^be paid in advance, and after the^new arrangement in reducing to ji.oo^per year no names will be placed on^our books who are not paid strictly^cash in advance; then any one re^^ceiving the Montana News will know^that the same is paid for.
Hymaking it a cash proposition^with no possible chance of loss, the^price can be reduced, and in recuc-^ing the price, a large subscription^list is assured.
Remember,The Montana News^will be $1.00 per year after the 1st^or not later than the 15th of July,^by which time we expect to have our^new books completely made up, and^all subscribers who appear in the^arrears dropped, and their accounts^given into the hands of a collector.
