SUNDAY.SEPTKMHKU M, 1HS^.
THEREAL ISSUE.^Sow that th^* moat stirriiiR cant^paiifii Montana ever witnetuuHl is reach^^ing its closing hours, it is worth while^to take account of two or three ele^^ments in the canvass which are likely^to have influence in territorial affairs^long after the polls have closed and^the fruits of victory have been gar-^uered.
Republicanmanagers of Montana^politics have run the canvass nit the^theory that no man who is contributing^liberally toward the prosjierity of tin-^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 democrat's dis^^credit when it conies to politics; that^those who have done most for the up^building of the territory are barreil^when it comes to fixing the political^status of the new state.
Thisis the plan on which the republi^^can canvass was projected. Its echo has^come in every utterance of republican^newspapers since the campaign began.^No candidate on the democratic ticket^has been successfully assailed during^the thirty days of the contest. Mr.^Toole's dist iiiguisheil services in behalf^of Montana have not been called in^question, the eminent fitness of Mr.^Magiunis to represent the new state in^congressional halls has not Im-cii the^theme of inquiry.
Sincethe republican party and tin-^republican press have chosen to make^a personal issue on gentlemen whose^names do not a pi war on the ticket of^either party, the M amiahii is willing^to leave the issue with the people in^I^eer L.i^dge and Silver How. and abide^the event.
Ltastnight's rally in this city is a^complete answer to all the falsehoods^which republican ingenuity has I wen^able to devise for use during this cam^^paign. Probably no town in this ter- i^ritory ever witnessed a demonstration 1^more enthusiastic in sentiment or more^generous in spirit than that of last^evening. Anaconda w ill hack its pro^^fessions with votes. The enemy may^expect to l^e paraly/ed by the returns^from this town next Tuesday night.
TOCHALLENGED VOTERS^.Your right to vote has been as^^sailed by the republican party^without warrant or reason. The^flimsy grounds for these chal^^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 citi/cn will be at your back^to sustain yon.
Chairmanof tlie DenifM-reticCommittee.
TOFINISH WITH HIM.^Anaconda democrats have one more^river to cross. They will reach it next^Monday night when tJeorge A. Sheri^^dan takes the platform to insult demo^^crats and make a plea for the republi^^can cause. This town disposed of Con^^gressman Heed and it is ready to give^its answer to Carter. In or^^der to give Mr. Sheridan his^pro|^er standing, it is only^necessary to draw the curtain that^covers the history of Louisiana for the^past llfteen years, and to recite the re^^lations of Co v. Henry Clay Warmouth^to the rotten regime which disgraced a^sovereign state and, in fact, the I'nited^States, during a critical |^eriod of the^nation's history. Sheridan would be^a handy man in the atlidavit business.^In Anaconda he will meet old-timers^who know him like a book. He is an^^nounced foi Monday evening and he is^a Iteatitiful wind-up for the republican^campaign in Anaconda.
THESILVER QUESTION^Interest in the ]tending election has^lieeu so absorbing that Montana |teople^have lost sight of the important inter^^national monetary conference held in^I'aris during the current month. In^truth, the coiifereiice'accomplished next^to nothing, although its membership^included some of the highest authori^^ties in Kurope on all questions relating^to hi-metalism and kindred topics.
Ina general way, the conclusion may^be drawn that the cause of silver was^not advanced in any way by the discus^^sion in which prominent members of^the conference engaged. It does not^appear that either Kngland or ^ iermany^are ready to recede from their position^of hostility to the double standard.^Kngland certainly will not do it.
Havinglittle to expect from confer^^ences with representatives of European^powers, it is evident that the I'nited^States 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 I'resident Har^^rison is positively unfriendly to any^policy involving an increase in the sil^^ver coinage. His own views on that^subject are certainly shared by the^treasury department, and the West has^small ho|h- of help from executive or^cabinet. Heyond doubt, their influence^will go for maintaining the policy now^in force.
tinthe other hand, it is a reasonable^assumption that the cause of silver will^have stronger representation in 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. Houhtless the fact that^four new western states are about to^take their place in the I'nion has^quickened the interest which the whole^country has in the silver question.^These new states will Is- urgent in^their demand for an increase of coin^^age, and it is altogether probable that^they will find friends both in the Kast^and South, if the issue is presented^persistently, with earnestness ami in^^telligence. However, a long, hard bat^^tle on this question is before thepeo^pie of the West, a struggle which they^cannot a Hon I to enter with divided^ranks, an issue which under all circum^^stances must be distinctly separated^from questions in current |^olitics, if^we ex|s-ct to make a winning tight.
Thatruling on lead must come from^the republican headquarters mighty^quick if the Harrison management ex-^pects to make use of for this trip in^Montana.
Itis as good as settled that the^world's fair will go to New York city^and that Central park will he used for^the display. The New York Nun wants^suggestions from the ingenious for a^feature which will do for the coming^fair what the KilTel tower did for the^exjKisition in I'aris. Doubtless that^lofty structure was an immense^card for the freneh 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 lived up fortius^year's show. It occurs to us that some^ingenious son of Montana could devise a^novelty that would suit the New York^tiun and please the fair's managers.
Incase any one of our people should^make a hit in this line, we suggest that^he Ik* sure to fasten his name to the
noveltyin a way that will leave no^doubt as to its authorship. Otherwise,^some day when the proposed great^fair is at the height of its popularity,^Mr. Thomas Carter will come alone^just when the crowd is dense, and,^pointing to the show's greatest attrac^^tion, wiU proclaim: ^I did this.
Anacondais all ready to go to the^polls. If there are any more affidavit-^makers lingering in the canyon, they^must speak quick.
THEYWILL VOTE. ALL THE SAME.
Affidavitsof which the Standard^hss not taken account are afloat in^Deer Lodge county. In fact, it ap^^pears to be in the republican plan to^strike down every man who entertains^the idea of supporting the democratic^ticket. A wood camp ten miles away^from this city has been afflicted with^the atlidavit scourge, and the promo-^tor of the scheme, in this instance, is a^patriot named Knight.
Thisindividual has challenged one^hundred and thirty-live men employed^at McCline's wimhI camp. Several of^the voters whom he assails are native-^born citizens of the I'nited States who^have s|wnt from two to four years in^the camp where th^*y were registered^fifteen days ago.
Thesuggestive fact in the business^is that several men in the McCune^camp known to be republicans are not^challenged, while democrats who were^born, some of them in New York and^others in Illinois, and who have long^been in the precinct where they are^registered, fall under the condemnation^of Mr. Knight's affidavits.
Thesemen will vote, of course.^Their title to citizenship and their^legal right to vote is beyond dispute;^ami a man of the callibre of Mr. John^H. Knight, of Hutte, cannot place the^slightest hindrance in their way.
TheDeer Lodge atlidavit-maker^would have got small comfort if he had^witnessed last night's parade in this
