NOT A POLITICAL ISSUE
There is reason to believe that rep
resentatives of ex-Senator Carter are
iiot only trying to utilize the Mon
tlana State Federation of Labor to
further the interests of the republi
can nominees of this state, but are al
so plachig their representatives in dif
ferent towns with a view to further

THE, HERALD recognizes the fact
that, certain principles are involved
among labor circles that require the
united effort of all on the particular
issue in question, but. to be made a
catspaw of any political party is un
fair by those who belong to labor un
It invariably' happens in election
years that scheming politicians .of
some party try to use the forces of la
bor to pull their chestnuts out of the
fire and to divert such association
from the legitimate purposes which
they were formed to promote.
Those who take a friendly interest
in labor and its organizations cannot
help feeling regret when they see any
effort made to prostitute societies of
union men for political purposes.
If the labor unions of Havre should
be controlled by republican agents,
the result may prove of some assis
tance to the political party mentioned,
but it, will not strengthen the organ
ization in the eyes of the people of the
state, nor will it make its position
more powerful in aiding labor in this
A society of this kind cannot very
well serve two masters.

If it desires to become an annex to
the republican party of Montana, it,
will lose its influence when it assumes
to speak for labor.
For the sake of its own reputation,
-and in order that, the organization
may continue to be an influential
factor in Montana it is hoped that the
delegates to the different organiztions
will sit down upon the effort which
is to be made to make the unions do
the bidding of a few republican labor
men who have political bees buzzidg
in their craniums.
Those members who respect the or
ganization will resist every effort to
prostitute it in the interest of any
You seldom meet a married man
who thinks he knows it all.
A woman thinks her husband is bet

If each young man would treat every
other man's sister the same way he
would like him to treat his, it would
be a nice thing to be a girl.

some sharp lawyer to get that.
Their Bridal Tour 1fay Be Beset
With Pitfalls Early in
Last week an article appeared in
the columns of this paper to the effect
that a fine sorrel team, hitched to a
top buggy and wearing a new set of
nickel plated harness and bearing
marks of an exceedingly hard drive,
had been found by Flavius Stacy tied
to a fence. We further stated that
there was evidence of a man and wo
man having alighted from the rig,
and it was the general surmise of the
public that an elopement had taken
place. As a matter of fact this latter
statement proved to be the correct
solution of the mystery.
The team had been stolen from a
liveryman of Medicine Hat by the
name of Lawrence, and the thief was
J. W. Wilson, who was once well
known in this city, he having been
employed as foreman at the Plain
dealer office about two years ago, It
is not known just who the woman
was but it is understood that she was
from Maple Creek, across the line.
The eloping couple went from Ma
ple Creek to Medicine Hat, where the
team was stolen and driven to this
point. They were seen to board the
eastbound train here on the evening
of August 16, but their destination
could not be learned as they purchas
ed no tickets.
H. Lawrence, the owner of the
team, was here this week and -recov
ered his property, which was a very

the couple has as yet been secured,
although the authorities along the
line of the Great Northern have been
notified of the theft and furnished
