THEY ARE FRIGHTENED
When Mr. Knox was chosen to suc
ceed Quay, there was much rejoicing
among the Wall street element, but
there was also much jeering among
the honest and impetuous "busters of
trusts" who had pinned their faith
on Knox. That Mr. Knox was the
real mover against the illegal combi
nations made it necessary for Presi
dent Roosevelt to remove the Attor
ney-general and substitute a less ac
tive man in that position. Mr. Roose
velt's attitude all through his.admin
istration has proven his interests to
be with illegal and immoral wealth,
while on the .other hand the demo
crats have nominated a man to head
their ticket who has fairly frightened
the republicans into a run. Few men
in American pubitc life are so moral
in their political methods as Judge
Parker. He is the active, healthy,
honorable American on a large scale,
therefore what he outlines for him
self to do, and what he does is in
stinctively understood and approved
of by the average honest American.
President Roosevelt was thrown
from his horse one day last week, lit
on the back of his head, got up and
assured his wife that he was all right
and was soon in the saddle again.
The president was fortunate in
lighting on that particular part of
his anatomy, otherwise it might have
affected his mind.

JUST AN OVERSIGHlT.
At last evening's meeting of the
city council City Attorney Hammond
made a slight error when stating to
the fathers "he was of the opinion
that city printing came under the
laws provided by the county commis
sioners." In this the city attorney
was mistaken, although we believe
unintentionally. On page 212, session
laws of 1897, identical with the code
of 1895, the law reads:
"To provide for the city or town print
ing, the contract of which must be let to
the lowest bidder."
Should the city fathers desire to
pass an ordinance regulating the
length of time a paper must be estab
lished in the city, it is their privilege
to do so, but up to date no such or
dinance has been passed.
It can be seen by this that the city
council exceeded their authority in
contracting to give the Plaindealer
the city printing for the ensuing two
years. At this time there are a num
ber of important ordinances which
makes immediate publication neces
sary. Might it not be well for the
city fathers to see that they are pub
lished legally and according to the
laws that regulate city printing?
During the next few years the
creamery industry will show remark
able progress in this section of the
state. Heretofore it has, been con
sidered that dairying was out of the
question in the northern part of the
state. Today, in the Bear Paws,
Chinook, Harilemr and other places
along the line, ranchers are beginning
to see it is to their interest to go into
the dairy bnsiness more heavily than
heretofore, and they will more natur
ally take advantage of the great op
portunities of going into cattle rais
ing for butter purposes. A creamery
will soon be built at Chinook and as
a result thousands of dollars will be
contributed to the wealth of that
section during the next year or two.
Here's hoping that Havre will be
next to take up the creamery indus
The frightful railroad wreck in Col
orado this week in which nearly a
hundred people lost their lives, adds
another terrible catastrophe to the
long list of disasters which have be
fallen the nation since the beginning
of the year. When the history of
1904 is written the list of calamities
will overshadow all previous years
since the birth of America. Most of
the lamentable disasters this year
have been due to accidents in which
no one was directly to blame, but can
not in any way be credited to the
good equipment of railroads or the
careful inspection of other public
places where people congregate, on
the part of those who are in a way re
