THE WAY HE TELLS IT.
Mr. Carter, In the round of his boast
tNe -epam . whisk has atudiously
t.s ease t Carter at the expense of
Mr. Power ad everybod se on the
iske, bas bees opeh ly m that
this terrty wes practicaly nothing
to demorats in the way of getting
Montana Into the Union. In fact, to
bhear him tell it, one would be led to
atinfer that Mr. Carter himself is the
corner-stone of statehood for Montana.
Of course, Mr. Carter has the right,
on the stump, to exaggerate his own
services and to misrepresent democrats
in any way that suits his plans. The
truth remains, however: and it is not
at all complimentary to Mr. Carter.
Every voter whom this question inter.
ests is asked to read the summary of
Mr. Toole's Helena speech, printed on
the eighth page of this morning's
rTADARD. If the story there recited
is untrue, the columns of the STAxD
Amn are oper for any corrections Mr.
Carter is disposed to ofer.
We epst to bear from Mr. Carters
ips by bt noon, ext Monday, that
he soverewd Montana and planted its
meantal ranges. It appears, up to
t present hour, with several counties
to hear ree, that hbe packed Montana

THAT POINTED QUESTION.
In Anaconda. a large audience lis
tened attentively to Congresman Reed
and complimented his speech. Yester
day, however, everybody was calling at
tention to the person in the audience
who, in courteous tonea, asked Mr.
Heed: "What about silver " Of course,
ne answer came, becamuse an expression
of Mr. ReeWd's convictiona on that sub
jaect, or a recital of his record, would be
dist-ateful to any audience in Montana.
Mr. Reed's address was generously
complimented, but the fact of that
question will linger in the mind of
Anaconda people when the memory of
all that Mr. Reed said has faded away.
Ever since this campaign began, the
sponsibility for Mr. Catrers preseee
in public lit has been charged on demo
crate In Butte and Anaconda. Perhaps
the harge has some foundation n act.
However that may be, the democrats

PUTTING IT RIGHT.

one man of all the three hundred and
ninety voters in Anaconda was at
tacked on the ground that he was not
qualfied, on the score of residence, to
be a voter. No such plea can be de
tfnded, for the STANDARD has already
shown that many of the workingmen
amiled in the aMdavits have lived in
this city from one to five years. Some
of them are large taxpayers, all of lem
are reputed eitisens, and there is not
a man of themn who can be thrown out

There Is no lmit to the majority
which Anaeosda will roll up for the
democrart tiket next Tuesday. Du
tardly attempts to throw out legal
voters in this city In whole squads have
served toarouse party sentiment. These
have actually been worth more to the
democratic cause than all the meetings
of the campaign n revealing the des
peration of the oppositioe.
THE AUSTRALIAN PLAN,
The repuMblican newspaperm the

perveron of the facts, that the
roatic party of Montana is opod to

the operation of the new law.
It is one of the many eampaign
falsehoods circulated by republicans
during the campaign that a democratic
legislature would undertake to repeal
the Australian plan. The charge is
utterly false. There is no shadow of en
cuss for assuming anything of the sort;
and we call attention of voters to the
fact that, almost without exception, in
other parts of the United States, the
democratic party is largely responsble
for the introduetion of the new system.
THE RIGHT OF IT.
Columns of noisy nonsense on the
silver question have been put into ed
itorial type by republican newspapers
during the campaign. We reverently
call the attention of these, our mis
guided contemporaries, to two sen
tences in Mr. Carter's speech in this
city, last evening, lie said: "The fact
is, my friends, that the record of both
parties on the silver question is bad.
It is not easy for Montana to fight
In fuller discussion of this theme Mr.
Carter remarked that, fifteen years ago,
republicans "inadvertently legislated
against silver." That's what they did.
Within six years, they have done the
same thing with deliberate purpose.
And eastern democrats have done the
same thing, Mr. Carter, as you and the
STANDARD are perfectly well aware.
The man who attempts to make a local
political issue out of the silver question
is the enemy of Montana.
Voters are warned to make the cross
with caution when they mark the legis
lative ticket, next Tuesday. The names
of the candidates are arranged in al
pbh ieca order. Each voter in Deer
Scounty has the right to mark
seven of these. The polities of each
candidate is clearly indicated after his
name. Go slow when you get into the
election booth and be sure that you put
the mark in the right square. When
you reach the vote on the constitution,
make no eross, but draw your pencil
through the words "against the consti
tution." That shows that you vote for
