ALTON B. PARKER, of New York.
For Vice President
1 .CNRY G. DAVIS, of West Virginia.
Mr. Bryan's demeanor since the St.
Louis convention is treated with all
sorts of facitious comment by the
press which happens to be his politi
cal opponents. Is this application of
the partisan spirit altogether necess
ary? Mr. Bryan's comment both at
the convention and afterward, has
been loyal to Democracy and has been
duely appreciated by Parker's politi
cal friends. He has behaved, not as a
radical with certain principles to ex
ploit, but as a serious American, in
terested in all he could do to advance
the cause he deemed was right. His
work has shown his sincerity and Mr.
Bryan will support Judge Parker.
Gov. Toole issued his proclamation
Monday for the election to be held on
Tuesday, the 8th day of November,
giving the list of officers to be chosen
by the electors of the state. Besides
the regular ticket presidential year,
there is to be elected a state senator
from Rosebud county, this election
having been made necessary by the
death of Jas. S. Hopkins, who was a
long term state senator.
Frank McDonough of Benton, Mer
rit Flannigan of Clear Creek and F.
Parker of Cleveland are all active can
didates for the Republican nomination
for sheriff. Everyone of them have
a following of loyal friends and the
fight will be a merry one. Sheriff
Buckley is resting easy during the
trials attending the beginning of the
campaign and will have no difficulty
in landing the Democratic nomination
for that office.
The Detroit woman who married a
man inorder to reform him of the
drug habit may not be a fool, but she
has rushed in where a sensible angel
would fear to tread.
Kuropatkin describes the Japanese
advance as slow and cautious. Won-i
der how the Russian commander
characterizes the retreat of the sol
diers of the Czar?
Whereas, the statues of the state of
Montana have designated the first
Monday in September of each year as
Labor Day, which day is thereby
made a holiday throughout the state,
And Whereas, It is meet and proper

devoted to rest and recreation, and to
the the privileges and accomplish
ments of labor,
RAnd Whereas, The various labor or
ganizations of the City of Havre have
made extensive preparations for the
