THUlSDAY, aKUPTmMBJB is, n18s.
Republlean newspapers are aum
ing that while the democrats are mak
ing a display of great activity in behalf
of the state ticket, their real purpose is
to gst aontrol of the legislature. These
newspapers warn their readers to look
at tor a still bunt along this line.
That is not a right presentation of
fasts. Thoroughly enlisted in behalf of
their state ticket, the democrats of
Montana are making an open~ and ag
gressive tight to elect a majority of the
candidates for both houses of the legisla
ture, and they expect to win. There is
no still hunt in uany part of the fiekd
this year. Th'l managern of the demo
cratic campaligu are urging the work
ers in every county to take good care
of the whole ticket. This may be news
in some of the republican newspaper
oflces. but it is no news to democrats.
They are at it tooth and nail for the
state ticket, both houses of the legisla
ture and all the county offices they can
possibly get away with by the use of
all honorable means.
HIS VERSION OF IT.
To bear him tell it, Mr. Carter came
pretty near carrying Moptana into the
Union on his own shoulders. About a
third of his Livingston speech is taken
up with the story of the personal ser
vies be rendered in securing admission
for the territory. "I talked freely with
Mr. Toole," Mr. Carter told his hearers,
"eseensetrm the adnmaaion question,
and be well knows that I, at least, pro
mosed to him the disposition to co-op
raa with him In securing the desired
This is nearly as bad a break as the
aesma Journal made, the other day,
whie t deribbed bow Mr. Carter went
o W Wsigton, "talked with the secre
tory of the treasury," and forthwith the
of ead began to advance. Some
the terrlair cannot be made to
ea Mr. Carte' views regarding the
mpe ads vahes of his public services.

truth is that when eooanss
was read for action on the adwhb
sian bill, leading republicans La
Montana were hostile to it for
tihe reaon that they wanted Mr.
Harrlomn' adminlstration to get
credit for the measure. Parti
manhip was stronger with these gentle
mea thai patriotec seal for the terri
tory. If they had prevailed, the whbole
question would have been deferred, the
territory would have been forced to
take her chances in any new compilca
tions that might arise, and Montana
would not now be getting ready to
take her place in the Union.
MARKING THE LINES.

Yes, sir, the NTAnDARD can do Just
that thing and needs no pressing Invi
tation to attempt it. For a starter, It
broadly gives the lie outright to
every insinuation In the columas
of the Butte later Yoawateat regarding
the relations of the democratic eom
mittee to the alleged circular relating
to Mr. Power. That is one line along
which the canvass will run.
Few newspapers have the hardihood
to link the names of respectable men
with dastardly work In the black-letter
line and then refuse to back the charge
with proofs. That is what the Inter
Mounsta't has dared to do. It is a
sneak and a blackguard for having
dared it. That is another line
on which to run the canvass.
The later-Mou tato empties the gut
ters of its editorial Alth on men who
are its betters, insinuating offenses it
dare not openly charge and assailing
their good name in the speech of the
brothel and the phrase of the black
mailer. These men demand that the
covert libel be stopped -- and it will be
stopped. This is another line on which
the personal canvass will be run.
The aIter MouNtaet will prove its
ease in all that it has charged against
the gentlemen in question in their
relation to the Power pamphlet,
or take its rightful place among the
newspaper thugs and journalistic assas
sins that infest decent communities
everywhere. That is an added line
along which the canvass will move.
This campaign, we repeat, will be
strictly personal until the whole matter
WE RECALL IT.
The Butte Inter Mounstals revives
some interesting remiailences in calling
attention to "'m legislative vote by
which the mine inspector bill became a
law. SMure enough; we remember the
debate on that question and the Inter
esting share which two republican
members from Ik+er Lodge had in It.
Iuhr memory Is that Professor Moore
and Mr. Joslyn, both of this county,
really made themselves famous when
that question was up. by the seal with
which they assailed Montana Irishmen.
For that matter, as we now recall it,
these gentlemen were quite sure that
no citisen of foreign birth is tit to be
trusted with the o1fle of inspector.
Iossibly the Inter Mondatain may re
member how earnestly one of three
gentlemen asserted that "none but
Irish need apply" for work at the Ana
conda smelter or at the mines In Butte.
We have not forgotten how ably our
Butte contemporary sought to pull
these men off. They ought to have
heeded its wise admonition, but they
were pig-headed about it and wouldn't
listen to reason. Now that this matter
hes been revived, the STANUAIRD will
take iocasion to give It more serious
attention as the campaign advances.
THE IRRIGATION QUESTION.
Aecording to all accounts, the mem
bers of the senatorial irrigation con
tuittee were not warmly welcomed iin
the city of Detnver. Colorado certainly
has a deep interest in the work of the
:ommnmittee. as Montana also has. In
this territory the reception giver
the senators was most cordial.
an'd Mosntana's people will feel
deeply interested in the reports
laid before congress. The investiga
tionl undertaken by the colmmission is
the first step in a gigantic work. It
will not, of course, be hastily assumedl
that favorable legislation will inl
mediately follow the report of the gesn
tlemen now surveying the field, but
their study will place before the coun
try a statement of the immense possi
billties there are for the trans-Missouri
country under some comprehensive
plan of irrigation, It may be that the
general government will be disposed to
use its abundant resources in the pro
motion of plans for irrigation, but
whether it willassist the separate states
to undertake the work, or whether, In
deed, the general government will take
any active part in the work must re
main a matter of conjectur. At any
rate, it is gratifying to know that the
subject has been taken up for compre
hensive study. A great deal of valua
ble information will doubtless be the
outcome of the senatorial inquiry.

(ne dog story always leads to another,
and be who has told one is as a matter of
course expected to follow it up with a see
oml. Therefore to the story told last
week the editor im constrained by immae
morial custom to add the following:
A lady who huas superb tawny St. Ber
nard, relates that at one period in his ea
rver Bruno had a warm attachment for a
black cat. Puss was ac.ustomed to sleep
upon the dog's great yellow bead. and the
pair are described as looklng very pictur
O n one ocasion the cook was more
than usually lutsy, and 'havin boiled the
dog's dinner and st It to cool, she forgot
to give It to him. Poor hungry Bruno
leom it in silense for some tie, and even
went to the unusual length of heglng a
a little for his delayed dlnner, but allto no
avail. At length the cook went out of the
kiteInLek*aving the pot of meat on the
estool. A ervant who was in the next
room saw bruso go up to it, put bis alo~e
over the edger and whine hungrily, I.t
without atteall)ting to take anything out.
He evidently strnugg.hl with himself but
he fllnally canqueerelt the temlptation, andt
retired to the other skk of the moon, where
he lay down all alert to watch for the com
in of the rcook.
The black eat, who had seen all this,
evidklently tlhouht the time had now come
for her to Interfere. Whe lumped upon the
stool where the pot of meut was sitting,
flshed out a big bone and, carrying it
acrs the kitchen, droped it at Bruno's
feet. The dog evidently felt that to hesi
tate any longer woukl he to fly in the face
of provklene, and he fell upon the bone
ravenously while pu.s, with the most evi
dent con.-iousness of tavin done a
clever thing, rubbed herself purring
against his gret, tawny sides.
All this the servant saw, and in due
time did repor% to credit alike of the repu
tation of the dog and of the cat.
