The AriA of Fedruauy 7. 1W. contains
the following: "The Hosn. Darlv Crockett,
member of congress front Tennesse., who
has been made the hero of a most laugh
able story by a wasi.sh Kentucky editor,
has taken that latter so seriously to
heart as to publib certllfcates of his con
durt on te ocasion aleuded to. Mr.
('lark of Keatucky rand Mr. Verplank of
New York have both certified that his
conaducte at the president's base was
'marked with the strictest propriety.' "
We sare told that Mr. Crockett Is a sem
uarl nmn, but suppose It is true that he
has sonethingo the "half homre, half
Ja- iator" in his manners. The Middle
sex u(e( noticingS him in the following
manner, lrves something betwixt a cart
uteatue aid a true picture of Mr. Crockett
and a large portion of l. constituents:
"In some of the western states great
muscular fore is an Indispensable
requisite n a succeesful ea.tlklate for
puhlic favor. This Mr. (romkett --or, as
e I familarly termed. Davy-ioss..eed
in an extraordinary dsgrue; and. while
his competitor was tellinag ti people of
his agreat merits, Davy was giving pra.
*ktical evkience of his by grubbing up a
stump which two ordinary nm.n would
have abandoned ht de.i ir. This strlk
-hg demonstration of sattesnaulike
qualities was irresistible to the yeomanrr
o..f Tenneseme. and the ..lection of our
worthy Davy was by arclannsation.
"Whble on his way to Wa'hingVton. he
aws.u d his companion that he could wade
the Mississipp with a st.teanlmt one his
hack, whip his weight in wildcats, and
rklde a .treak of lightning hare-tacked.'
Davy is the man• who proposed to whip all
the aninml. in a tuenagerie. conrsistin of
a lion. a parcel of nonkeys, and a asrr..
4 in a certain occasion he sakl he intended
to speak in thel Ho.se of Representatives.
for Inc saw ao reasoml of being dilkffdent, as
he could flog any nusia in it."
The fact that D)avy produmced evkl.nce
int refutation of the .hargfe nade aainlt
hin by the "good Mr. K. of ()io.' does
not detract from the interest of the story.
In the succeeding nullmers of the Arirl
no mention in nmca of Mr. Crockett hay
ing denied the ahove statements of the
Middlesex (rIGaor; sn the present gener. -
tion must either aceept then as truths or
account for mnondenalLs of them hby peroe

to public criticism and that many stories
are told at their expetnse.

Scalled upon to participate is

Never since the organization of
the territory has the Democracy
been so united or seemingly so in
vincible. Our cause is just, our
candidates invulnerable, and our
victory ought to be certain. There
is but one danger to be feared, and
that is a failure to register. Let
every man that deserves well of
the coming state see to it that fle
is not disfranchised by that vicious
and partisan law, which ought to
have been entitled "An act to dis
franchise the farmers, miners and
stockmen of Montana," and which
was born of the first republican
legislature of Montana.
Register, and do so at once, and
thus rebuke the party that enacted
such a law. Delay is dangerous.
In order to vote you must register
on before September i .
Let the naturalized citizens of
this territory who have been voting
unmolested for years. hunt up
their papers that they have not
seen for ten years, and go to the
place of registration and register.
and at the same time register a
vow to rebuke the political party
that puts you to this great in
convenience and practically dis
franchises you by the absurd pro
vision which requires you to pro
duce your papers, and in some
instances to travel a hundred
miles to register before you can
exercise the rights of freemen.
We ask all who are interested
in good government to read the
platform of our party. Examine
the public and business records
of our candidates, pursue and in
vestigate them in all their rela
tions to the public, to the last and
final analysis, and we are confi
dent that you will find them
worthy Montanians. men who will
guard and protect her interests at
Rcgittr and tell your friends to
