There come days now and then. |^however, when a newspaptf would sep^^arate itself from a friendship it prizes^hy declining to depart from its ordinary^habits. Such a day is at hand. Not^long iigo a committee representing the^Miners' I nion of llutte rei|nested the^HTAXDAM) to omit its issue of Situr^day morning in order Ihat its forces^may have opportunity t^^ take part in^Friday's demonstration.

WORDSAND AOR^^I'eople ill this western MMMtr) will^lenienils-r what Thomas I How hard^I Iced remarked last week when he was^.iskerl to keep hands oil and give silver^a fair chance. It was eminently proper^to ask this much of Mr. Iteed because^confessedly, tin* cause of silver had a^safe majority in the house of repre^sciitatixc*. Mr. Heed knew that: and^he discovered that it required a vigor^oils application of the gag law to break^the majority.
SpeakerIteed has always been the^enemy of silver. When lie was mak^^ing campaign speeches in Montana,^last year, his record on the ipiestion^was exposed, some of the republican^newspapers pitched in headlong with^denials of the record, but Mr. Heed^himself was more adroit he simply^ignored the charge and was suave with^his professions of friendship. Mr.^Heed is not a man of gracious manner,^lie is in fact so uncouth as to lie little^less than a boor, and his language was^thoroughly characteristic last week^when he declared:
IIn Northwest, and ajsjgsMk Ih*' fool lie*^Males, haw ln-eu Well In-ali-d liy this nniuti ss.^and in all Ihinits rflorl lias lieen nia4sto allow^neiiled tot al leicislalion lo In- |^a^*ed, and it is^asknit' a |H i' 'I' -^1 I^ lia\e a Mixer lull fiain. .1
iiithen Interest and lo till'ilftl llllelft ot tin l ast.
Thisill teni|M red talk is a match lor^the language used on the stump in^Montana MM evening last September^when Speaker Heed, smarting under a^reference from the audience to his sj|^ver record, shouted out. ^Montana will^lie republican anyway. I'he people^that come out hen- from the I'.ast will^make it so.
speaker Heed is iindiih tender re^^garding anything that might hapis'ii to^the ^detriment of the I'.ast.^ Ilisoth^cial inlluence and position are the pos^session of the I'.ast. He is a part ol the^political projierty of that section, and a^sponsor for corporal ions, as Windnni is.^and Mckinley and the w hole gang that^is running the administration. The^^ use with which these republican item^agogues have hoodwinked thousands of^I mm 11 ile in the West is remarkable.^Whvn the\ nominated Harrison the)^made a square pledge to restore silver^to its place in the ciineiicx. and t he^Wcs1 11 listed thrill. When they prom^ised to order t lie needed revision of the^twill inir peiipli .i lid ed them W hen^Heed professed himself an honest
friendof silver, several new^pa|^ers ac^ceptetl the announcement in Rood^faith. When Windoni said that the^West could feel at ease about the lead^tariff question, he wan credited with^sincerity. (In that question, so con^^servative a newspaper as the Salt Hake^Ti ilnuit felt warranted in announcing,^so long ago as vptember SI, IKNH:^^We have the asurance regard^ing the question of the duty^on lead, that the assistant sec^retary of the treasury has found for^us ami that his ruling only awaits the^formal sanction of Secretary Windoni.^We have a right to feci satislied w ith^the oiithink but also the rigid to com^^plain at the tedious, and it seems to us^altogether needless, delay in formu^^lating that result.^ The lYAMM did^not dremn that the delay was to tie^lengthened till May.
Thisis another of the broken prom^^ises witli which the West had to put^up. Mr. Windoni discovered that the^duty might possibly lie ^to the detri^^ment of the Kast.^ In the end the lead^duty was saved in the house of repre^sentatives by the democrats. The men^who fought hardest for free lead when^the filial vote on this question was^pending were Hopkins and I'unston^and Schlhack and Kelly and others^republicans, all of them. 'I'he vote was^122 to |u|. and the duty was saved by^the friendly help of democrats who ab^^stained from voting and we venture^to say that Mr. Hu Hois anil Mr. ^ arter^will admit as much.
TheWest has a long score to settle^with l.'eed and the lest of them.
THEWAY THEY HAVE.
Inits time the I nion I'acilic man^agemeiit has done some very curious^things for the ^alleged best interests of^the company.^ In shops and others^between Omaha and I'ocatello it has^MM maintaining subordinates whose^chief business it has been to injure one^another hy the conveyance of all sorts^of tattle to general headquarters.
luthis way the supposed best inter^esls of the road have often been served^hy the removal of competent railroad^men and the appointment of uiiquali-^lied pinheads to the vacancies tbus cre^^ated. I If this class of incompetents the^I nion I'acilic lias employed enough to^make a battalion. There have been^times when a man has needed to be a^very pronounced ignoramus in railroad^a Hairs in order to hold a place in the^I' nion I'acilic service.
Yetthe road in question has had at^times some excellent ollicers at posts of^iii^|K^rtancc. lu the judgment of peo^^ple hereabouts I iencral Manager Dick^ltistui. of the Missouri division, was one^ol these. The Montana public may be^mistaken in this, but now that his^resignation has been demanded ^for the^best interests of the company,^^their off hand conclusion will be^that he was too good a railroad^man to suit ilie needs of the road.^Montana's judgment may he wrong in^this, still, the Stand vim would easily^he tempted to wager that Mr. Hit-kin^son's retirement is due to an ^original^package'' of jealousy entertained^against MM by men who. in the judg^incut of the railroad wnrlil. are no^match for him in ability to render^elVu'iclit service. The I nion I'acilic^management MOTH in a MjMMllllll^way its blunders to perform. I'he^best interests of the company bring^about some curious changes which arc^wrought by nun whose real MOilW is^to look out lor the liest interests of^themselves.
Mr.Ihckinsiiii knows what it is to he^dismissed from the I nion I'acilic ser^^vice; be was retired once before and^then restored, but the present dismissal^is doubt less for keeps. On the day of^Mr. I iickinson's retirement first Vice^I'resident llolconih might truthfully^have telegraphed to rharlcs Francis^Adams: ^I now have the honor to re^^port that I have managed to discharge^every t horoiighly competent man w ho^has helil an otlice of responsibility on^the main line of the I nion I'acilic^railroad.^ I'rohahly several pretty^bright men are still with the company,^lint, if that is true, Mr. First N ice^I'resident llolconih is not aware of it.
TROUBLEAMONG THE FAITHFUL^It is disappointing to learn that the^members of the Itellamy club in ^iak^land, instead of living in accordance^w ith the principles ot universal broth^^erhood as promulgated by the founder^ol the new I'topia. have actually qitar^reled, called names, torn hair and^parted never to meet again at least on^terms of mutual friendship ami ad^^miration. 'I'he club started out all^right with a well delined policy ami all^that, hut trouble was quick a coining.^'I'he members unfortunately did not^all 111ink alike NMM became iiuhueil^with the idea that their beads were of^a markedly su|ierior si/e as compared^with the intellectual seats of others.^I lillerences arose, schisms appeared,^fact ion* developed and last Thursday^night eighteen members got up ami^walked out. banging the door helumi^them and vowing that they would^start an opposition Itellamy society of^t heir ow n in w hich reason and intelli^^fence would prevail instead of the^medieval ignorance, tyranny and^stupidity in which the Mi organization^was thoroughly steeped
Oneis led to fear that the new sun^ety is not strictly orthodox. The^eighteen secessionists have evidently
presumedtake additions and nu
proveinentsupon the original gospel of^Hellamy. or at least to tliller materially^from the commonly accepted interpre^tation ot the text It is horrible lo^think of. lint the spirit ol tree thought^anil independent uiv e^l mat imi sii-ms to^be invading the church of ItlllMMT
skepticsanil agnostics may arise who^will repudiate Itellamy and declare^that, after all. he is not the stuff.^Transcendeutalists may spring Mp with^schemes of human happiness calcu^^lated to knock the tar out of Itellamy's^best. The Keformed Itellamists of^Oakland are probably hut the forerun^^ners of innumerable wets and denomi^^nations so widely at variance thai they^will never be able to get together a^result which will nei-essarily smash the^Itellainic idea of universal brotherhood^into a thousand pieces. It is sail to^contemplate, but until Hellamy or some^of his more advanced followers can^effect a radical change in human^nature, until they can make uniform^the quality and conformation of many^million different brains, men will differ^in their opinions, and get angry, and^quarrel, and light, and call each other^cranks, and idiots, and chumps, and^have a high old time till doomsday.
PARTCULARLY IMPRESSED^sanders and I'ower received from^Hutte a iljspatch which read quite like^the message that was addressed by^prominent gentlemen in that city to^Mr. Carter.
TheSi AMiAitn asks its readers not^to forget the circumstances under^which these dispatches happened tone^sent. The suggestion that prompted^their sending came from the members^of the national silver committee who^w ired a vigorous message to the Ore^I'roducers' Association at Salt Lake.^In order that the case may be frankly^stated, our liest course is to reprint the^dispatch just its it was received m salt^Hake and repeated to Hutte. It reads^like this:

Thisis the dispatch to which the^salt Hake senders added in parenthesis.^^Carter dodged the question yester^^day.
Nobodyin Montana is linding any^particular amount of fault with Mr.^Carter because the republicans in the^house of representatives went almost^solidly against silver on Saturday's^final vote. The situation is well de-^lined in what he said to the Stan-^iiami's Washington correspondent at^ten minutes after I o'clock on the after^noon of that day. It was then that he^remarked:
MyinSiienee is not greater than that of the
entirereunliliean side, led hy S|ieHker KI, ami
I^ an only hope that the senate Kill move care^fully and consider the IntiTcHts of mi roust it u^cuts.
Hutwhat is the matter with Mon^^tana's so-called senators that they^should need to lie ^particularly im^^pressed r^ He it remembered that the^need of impressing these men was^never suggested by any of their critics j^or opponents in Montana, on the con^^trary, attention was called to the mat^ter by men in the I'.ast w ho gave active^personal attention to the debate as it^progressed in Washington who in their j^/eal for the cause exhorted the men of i^the West to he alert, and who warned ,^their tricinls that the 'Montana semi .^tors should he particular!) impressed.^^I low does it happen that the men who^ot all others should lie foremost in the^light were discovered to lie in need of^s|M'cial exhortation to duty -
Itcspnndiligto the request of the^national silver committee, several gen^^tlemen in Hutte sent a dispatch to^zanders and I'ower. The Si ANlrAltli^would not have joined in this under^any condition, because it believes^sanders to lie a state stealer and I'ower^a political NMMff. The time will never^come when this newspaper would^recognize their right to Is- in Washing^^ton by asking them to favor with^voice or vote any man however worthy^or any measure however urgent.
Hut.we re|s-at. the wonder is that^the active members of the silver com^^mittee should have discovered that, of^all men on the American continent,^sanders anil I'ower should need tube^^particularly impressed^ with the im^^portance of separating themselves^from republican domination on the^silver question.
