HOW ABOUT IT?
Chairman 4ellgman hastens to assert
that no charges of any description
against Judge De Wolfe have ever been
sent to Washington, within the knowl
edge of the republican committee.
That gentleman protests too mush
and denies what this newspaper has
never charged. We have asserted, how
ever, that a movement to bring the dis
trict court into disgrace and to remove
Judge )e Wolfe was both started and
matured as far as the dark-lantern re
publicans who manage the Milver Bow
business could perfect 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 liat of
names of prominent republicans who
knew all about the movement and
then hastened to deny their own con
nection therewith, all he has to do is
to sail for it.
The NTANDAmI) will be grateful in
behalf of every reputable citizen of
Montana if this scheme perishes before
it is allowed to ripen. but it will not do
to tell us that it was not planned or
that republicans of conspicuous prom
ienece were in ignorance about it. It
is not news to be told that "charges
against Judge I) 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 eowardly as
sault were restrained only by the fear
of withering popular condemnation
that overtook them.
The people can and cause for con
gratulation in the fast that Montana
may escape this most dastardly of out
rages. At this time, when an oMlee
hungering horde I. 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
iudleiary may yet be frowned down.

A republican 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
be better to hold the admission bill until
President 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 reflet how flimsy
the pretext is on which these political
wreckers base any excuse for the delay.

It must be assumed that Mr. Hall was
