RepublicanpajHTs in Pennsylvania^think it would M a shame if the party's^majority in that state falls IsMow thii:..'^thoiniaiMl. Probably it will liolil up to^thai mark without any trouble ax^Pennsylvania now has to array itself^^gainst the republicans and democrats^of New Kii'rlaml. New York, and a^^arjfe portion of the West in the litflit to^defend itself HKitinst the universal de^^mand for a long list of free raw ma^^terial.
Itwill be a mistake if the constituted^authorities in Montana neglect the si I^vsr roiivelition soon to he held in St.^Louis. Kvery state and territory is^aaked to send a delegation, and there is^no section which has a greater interest^than Montana in the disc ussion. It it^hoped that Governor White will feel^disposed to give the subject attention,^to the extent at leant of ascertaining^whether leading men in the territory^desire to be represented.
Thewonder is that Chicago should^want to invite foreigners to its hos^^pitality, as guests at the proposed^world's fair, when it cannot take decent^care of those already within its borders^who hiss the American flag and who^are the perennial source of annoyance.^Chicago oilers to put up any number of^millions for the coming fair at least^the newspaiiers of that city say so. If^it would levy an assessment of two per^cent, on these millions and devote the^money to the swift punishment of those^who utter treason, reserving a good^balance for the speedy pursuit of court^officers mixed up ill the ^ 'roiiin alTair.^the city would have a decent name at^least and might then plan about ap^^propriating the remaining UK per cent,^either for an exposition or for monu^^ments to decent courts and the like.
IfMr. .lack had not hurried off tn^Kuropc his friends might be able to^meet the assertion that his money was^up on the majority which the tunnel^precinct would give. This is the pre^^cinct which Mr. .lack counted out. The^Staniiakd renews the assertion re^^peatedly made in these colums that the^Butte republicans placed a voting^precinct at the llomestake tunnel^fully assured that it was to lie carried^largely for their ticket. It can lie^proved that they secured a very large^percentage of the registry and that,^within three days of election, certain^Hutte republicans gleefully commented^on the fact that they ^had fixed the^precinct anil would get every hist vote^recorded there.^ The vote at that pre^^cinct refused to lie purchased and the^plan of republicans to avenge them^^selves is now notorious.
ITIS DONE WITH.
Thecase of Mr. Hall, of Itutte, has^been in court, is out again by the pay^^ment of a tine and that's the end of it.^We are not acquainted with any news^^paper that desires to do Mr. Hall the^slightest injustice or to keep him in^unnecessary display before the public.^It is true that Mr. Hall was foolish^enough to spend a good deal of time on^Tuesday and again on Wednesday in^the indulgence of no end of very silly^talk ab- d Judge I ^^^ Wolfe, the demo^^crats, the count and the whole range of^related topics.
Republicansami democrats in Itutte^with whom the St.\ni^\ki^ is ac^^quainted found |ff^. Hall a very tedious^companion during the days men^^tioned, and they smile broadly at^the suggestion that he was at any time^within range of danger, although he^was disposed to court trouble ami^might easily have picked a quarrel had^people been disposed to worry them^^selves about his talk. We do not fancy^that hints as to Mr. Hall's readiness to^refuse any mandate that may come^from a Montana court are worth heed^iug. This licing admitted. Mr. Hall's^case may Ik- dismissed. He really isn't^worth discussing.
TOATTACK DEER LODGE.^Cuder ordinary circumstances, the^fact that Silver How returns are in dis^putemight not operate as a bar to Mon^^tana's admission into the I'nion. It is^clear that the |s'o|^le have adopted the^constitution, and the verdict of the^territory would hardly lie imperiled^were the whole vote of Silver How^counted as if cast against it. Hut^there are features of the case not yet^fully develo|^ed at home, although well^understood in Washington, which help^to account for the delay in letting^Montana in.
Theterritory is in trouble, but the^end is not yet. The plan of the repub^^lican conspirators has not liecti fully^unfolded, their scheme being to ascer^^tain first how far they may dare to^trifle with the public and then to force^their plot by stealthy advances. We^hear of new developments
withina few days. The inten^^tion of Mr. Power is to as^^sail the returns from I^eer Lodge^county when they reach the board of^state canvassers.
Thesereturns were not attacked^when they were in the hands of the^county board chiefly for the reason that^the chairman of the board of county^canvassers is a sterling democrat, an^honored citisen and an upright gentle^^man, with whom the dark-lantern re^^publicans knew it would not do to tam^^per, a man who cannot be hoodwinked^by any gang anil who would give up^life itself rather than be tempted to^disgrace himself, his county and his^party by lending his official position^to a dishonest act.
Itsuited the republicans to let^the count pass this man unchal^^lenged in hope of bringing the^returns before another board, where^they hope to make their influence felt.^The plan is now so far developed that^the republicans announce their pur^^pose, and we shall find within a week^that this county of Deer Lodge is to^see the verdict of its people overthown^by an outside board of canvassers.if the^republicans who are bent on stealing^out the state can force a decision in^their own favor.
Itis quite safe to predict the result.^This county will doubtless be counted^out. The republicans Have the ma^^chinery for the work in their hands^and one of their number- to his en^^during shame lie it said has lieen^heard to rest his jubilant predictions of^success on the fact that the man in^whom I )eer Lodge democrats have had^an inspiring and an intrepid leader lies^prostrate and cannot lift his voice in^protest.
ChairmanSeligman hastens to assert^that no charges of any description^against Judge IN* Wolfe have ever been^sent to Washington, within the knowl^^edge of the republican committee.
Thatgentleman protests too mush^ami denies what this newspaper has^never charged. We have asserted, how^^ever, that a movement to bring the dis^^trict court into disgrace ami to remove^Judge He Wolfe was both started anil^matured as far as the dark-lantern re^^publicans who manage the Silver How^business could |s*rfect it. If Mr. Selig^^man is disposed to raise any question^on this point, let him step right to the^front, and if he wants the list of^names of prominent republicans who^knew all about the movement ami^then hastened to deny their own con^^nection therewith, all he has to do is^to call for it.
TheStaM)AI!I^ will lie grateful in^behalf of every reputable citizen of^Montana if this scheme perishes before^it is allowed to ri|ien, but it will not do^to tell us that it was not planned or^that republicans of conspicuous prom^^inence were in ignorance about it. It^is not news to lie told that ^charges^against Judge He Wolfe have not been^forwarded to Washington.^ We are^all well aware of the fact; and we are^also aware that the gang of conspira^^tors who concocted the cowardly as^^sault were restrained only by the fear^of withering popular condemnation^that overtook them.
Thepeople can find cause for con^^gratulation in the fact that Montana^may esca|^e this most dastardly of out^^rages. At this time, when an office-^hungering horde is seeking to thwart^the popular will, to trifle with the^registered ballot and to throw every^possible obstacle in the pathway to^statehood, let us rejoice to know^that, at least, the assault on Montana's^judiciary may yet be frowned down.
KEEPINGIN*THE DARK.^Montana cannot pass the portals of^the I'nion baud in hand with the sister^^hood of states in the Northwest. She^is to lie left liehind. North Dakota,^South Dakota and Washington are^ready to l^e received. They have waited^for us but they are impatient and they^are to lie welcomed without us. The^fact furnishes cause for deep regret,^the more profound because the people,^anxious to enter in. are delayed by the^wiles of a handful of ccuspiring dema^^gogues.
Arepublican contingent did its best^to block Montana's advance toward^statehood last spring, the mean motive^at that time having its source in the^idea that, for political reasons.it would^lie better to hold the admission bill until^1'resident Harrison could sign it. An^^other republican contingent, incompar^^ably meaner and more cowardly in its^methods, blocks the way of Montana's^progress now. It must astound every^patriotic citizen to reflect how flimsy^the pretext is on which these political^wreckers base any excuse for the delsy,^the turmoil ami the ill-repute in which^they have involved this territory and^its people.
Thereis not a reputable republican^in Montana who offers toTather the con^^spiracy hatched out last week in Hutte.^It is an open secret that Congressman^Carter affects to regard the business^with disfavor. The Helena managers^have never allowed their names to ls^^publicly used in connection with the^outrage. The statement has been vol^^unteered by republican newspapers^that Colonel Sanders has held quite^aloof from it. and the party press has^defended the relations of Judge^Knowles to the conspiracy on the con^^venient professional grounds that are^supposed to shield a lawyer in defending^a |ierjured assassin or a besotted harlot.^^ If the democratic memliers of the can^^vassing board, one flies off to Kunqie^knowing that he cannot Ik- here on the^first Monday in November, although^his presence on that occasion might lie^of infinite account to every citizen of
Montana,white the second msmbei Is^kept before the public by becoming the^hero of a drunken escapade. Bernard,^denounced once and again as a con^^victed murderer, is a conspicuous ras^^cal in the band, and Jones has a record^on both sides of the range which Is not^long to be withheld.
Theseare the men who are keeping^Montana out of the union, every man^of them who cares to defend his name^causing it to be announced that he has^neither part nor lot in the outrage.^Some of them have names so soiled^that no political job however filthy^could make them more offensive in the^public nostrils. They are a dark-^lantern outfit. They would not hesi^^tate to throw this territory into revolu^^tion, if only they could assure their^own escape from the vengeance of an^outraged public.
Inrelation to the arrest of William^K. Hall, the Inter Mountain last even^^ing printed ^the facts of the matter as^stated by Mr. Hall himself.^ 'It ap|iears^from this autobiography.which minute^^ly narrates all Mr. Hall's acts on the^eventful evening, that ^he took a drink^at Jim Lynch'* saloon with a friend.^^This is the only drink that appears any^^where in the history of the case, and as^Mr. Hall is a republican no one has a^right to go behind the returns.
Itmust lie assumed that Mr. Hall was^in condition to conduct the count with^faithfulness and certify to it with in^^tegrity. The expression that ^ he took^a drink with a friend ** is a trifle vague,^the reader being left in doubt as to^whether he invited the friend or the^friend invited him. In either case,^however, there was no reciprocity of^drinks, else Mr. Hall would have men^^tioned it. He took, therefore, only one^drink.
Hutthis one drink speaks volumes^for the superiority of Mr. Jim Lynch's^stock, tientleiiieti of Butte who desire^to get eighteen or twenty ordinary^drinks condensed aud compressed into^one single all so^ king. rip roaring and^everlasting jim-dandy drink that will^make them whoop it up with unfailing^steadiness an entire evening, should^not fail to patronize their worthy^townsman.
