THE REAL ISSUE.
Now that the most stirring cam
Rign Montana ever witnessed is reach
its closing hours, it is worth while
to take account of two or three ele
meats in the canvass which are likely
to have nlauence in territorial affairs
iong after the polls have closed and
the fruits of victory have been gar
Republican managers of Montana
polities have run the canvass on the
theory that no man who is contributing
liberally toward the proslerity of the
territory has a right to take part in
Montana politics. The proposition is
that the record of past unselfish service
must be put to any denmocrat's dis
credit when it comes to politics; that
those who have done most for the up
building of the territory are barred
when it comes to fixing the political
status of the new state.
This is the plan on which the republi
can canvass was projected. Its echo has
oeme in every utterance of republican
newspapers since the campaign began.
No candidate on the democratie ticket
has beet successfully assailed during
the thirty days of the contest. Mr.
Toole's distinguished services in behalf
of Montana have not been called in
question, the eminent fitness of MAr.
Maginnis to represent the new state in
congressional halls has not been the
theme of inquiry.
Since the republican party and the
republican press have chosen to make
a personal issue on gentlemen whose
names do not appear on the ticket of
either party, the NTANIARI is willing
to leave the issue with the people in
Deer Lodge and nilver How, and abide
Lest nights rally in this city is a
eomplte answer to all the falsehoods
whiMb republican ingenuity has been
able to devise for use during this cam
paigm. Probably no town in this ter
tsery ever witnessed a demonstration
m am enthusiastle in sentiment or more
gsrous in spirit than that of last
eeaning. Anaeonda will back its pro
mdlum with votes. The enemy may

TO CTAI11e I)MT
.Your right to vote has been as
sailed by the republcan party
without warrast or reason. The
Aimsy grounds for these chat
lenges cannot be sustained in any
court. The best lawyers in the
territory say that you have a per
fect right to. vote. Do not listen
to any one who tries to frighten
you from casting your ballot on
election day. All that is neces
sary for you to do is to go to the
polling place, make out your bal
lot and swear it in. No man has
any right to stop you, no judge
of election has any power to do
you injury hereafter; and every
good citizen will be at your back
to sustain you.

TO FINISH WITH HIM.
Anaeonda democrats have one more
river to cross. Tey will reach it next
Monday night when (eorge A. Sheri
dan takes the platform to Insult demo
crats and make a plea for the repubU
can cause. This town disposed of (on.
gressman Reed and it is ready to give
its answer to Carter. In or
der to give Mr. Sheridan his
proper standing, it is only
necessary to draw the curtain that
covers the history of Louisiana for the
past fifteen years, and to recite the re
lations of Gov. Hlenry ('lay Warmouth
to the rotten regime which disgraced a
sovereign state and, in fact, the United
States, during a eritieal period of the
nation's history. Sheridan would be
a handy ma in the aflidavit business.
In Anaconda he will meet old-timers
who know him like a book. lie is an
nounced tot Monday evening and he is
a beautiful wind-up for the republican
campaign in Anaconda.
THE SILVkR QUESTION.
Interest in the pending election has
bene so absorbing that Montana people
have lost sight of the important inter
national monetary conference held in
Paris during the current month. In
truth, the aonference'accomplished 1lct
to nothing, although its membserlmp
included some of the highest authori
ties in Europe on all questions relating
to bi-metalism and kindred toplcs.
In a general way, the conclusion may
be drawn that the cause of silver was
not advanced in any way by the diseus
sion in which prominent members of
the conference engaged. It does not
appear that either England or Germany
are ready to recede from their position
o hostility to the double standard.
England certainly will not do it.
Having little to expect ftrom confer
encss with representatives of European
powers, it is evident that the United
tates will be compelled to pursue a
policy of independence in all that re
lates to this important question. Put
ting all partisan considerations aside,
it is fair to assume that President liar
rison is positively unfriendly to any
policy iavolving an increase in the sil
ver coinage. Iis own views on that
subject are certainly shared by the
treasury department, and the West has
small hope of help from executive or
cabinet. Beyond doubt, their influence
will go for maintaining the policy now
on the other hald, it is a reasonable
assumption that the cause of silver will
have stronger representation it. the
coming congress than for years past,
and that the sentiment prevailing
throughout the country-which un
questionably is now more friendly to
silver than in the past-will find effec
tive defenders in the national
legislature. ioubtless the fact that
four new western states are about to
take their place in the Union has
quickened the interest which the whole
country has in the silver question.
These new states will be urgent in
their demand for an increase of coin
ae,. and it is altogether probable that
they will find friends both in the East
and Mouth, if thlsue issue is presented
persistently, with earnestness and in
telligence. however, a long, hard bat
tle on this question is before the peo
pie of the West, a struggle which they
cannot afford to enter with divided
ranks, an issue which under all circum
stances must be distinctly separated
from questions in current politics, if
w.e expect to make a winnling tight.

GET IT BRANDED.
It is as good as settled that the
world's fair will go to New York city
and that Central park will be used for
the display. The New York oun wants
suggestions from the ingenious for a
feature which will do for the coming
fair what the Eiffel tower did for the
exposition in Paris. )oubtless that
lofty structure was an immense
card for the french fair. It will be
strange indeed if the inventive Ameri
can fails to meet the demand for some
thing that will overmatch the clever at
traction that was fixed up for this
year's show. It occurs to us that some
ingenious son of Montana could devise a
novelty that would suit the New York
.tus and please the fair's managers.

make a hit in this lile, we suggest that
