Governor Toole and lion. W. Y.
Pemberton are greeted by
The Democratic campaign opened
in Havre Monday with a demonstra
tion that fairly rivaled the muses of
fancy, even of the republicans. An
opera house packed to its fullest ca
pacity greeted Governor Toole, Hon.
W. Y. Pemberton and David G.
Browne, the candidate for state treas
urer from Chouteau on the democrat
These gentleman were given a grand
ovation when they made their appear
ance upon the stage, and there could
be no mistaking the fact that the
sympathies of the audience was Dem
The opera house had on its holiday
attire, the stage being tastily decora
ted with palms, flags and bunting.
After a selection by Havre's City
Band, Mayor L. Newman, democratic
candidate for representative, intro
duced the governor, expressing his
gratification that so many were pres
ent to listen to the next governor of
Montana. "He is the embodiment of
the best platform ever presented to
the people of any state, and his best
recommendations were not what he
would do if re-elected, but what he
had already accomplished for this
Gov. Toole was given a cordial ova
tion when he rose and expressed him
self as being more thin pleased and
gratified with the reception tendered
him by the splendid audience. The
governor said: "We are here to-night
in all soberness and seriousness to pre
sent to your consideration, as we shall
to all the people of the state, why we
believe the Democratic party of this
community ought to come out of it
victorious and its ticket from top to
bottom elected. The Democratic
party of this state, in all its pristine
glory, not only united, but endorsed
from topl to bottom by four separate
and independent parties of this state,
how can you beat it? Indorsed be
cause it appeals to the best interests
of the people and presents for them
remedies for confessed evils. So strong
are these principles in the hearts and
minds of the people, not only the la
bor party and populist party who
have heretofore had places more or
less upon the Democratic ticket, that
they have come into the fold and en
dorsed outright the Democratic prin
"W'hat is the first thing asked of
the Democratic party that we have
not got., but which we most desire?
It is a direct primary nomination law
in the state of Montana. Everybody
at all familiar with the situation in
this state knows that under the pres
ent system, it is an exception if you
get a ticket before the people who in
reality represent the political senti
ments of the party.
"Now, let us get to this other prop
osition which is submitted -to the
Democratic platform, that is direct
legislation. It is proposed that when
a given number of people want a law
passed, they may sign a petition--and
that number is to be fixed by the con
stitution of the state in its amend
ment-and when that is done it be
comes obligatory to pass the law. If,
on the other hand, the legislature
meets and passes a law which is con
fessedly against the interests of the
people, which is confessedly in the in
terest of certain classes or individuals
the people do not have to wait and
ask a legislative assenibly to repeal
"Another thing which we have ask
ed and on which there seems to be al
most unanimity of sentiment is the
creation of a railroad commission.
The Democratic platform comes forth
and asks that there be a railroad com
mission created, and that it be an ac
tive one. The republican platform
simply declares in favor of such. If
it is ever to be of mutual benefit to
the people of the state, it ought to be
an elective office: it ought to be one
where the men who are nominated to
that office should be nominated at a
direct primary and then elected at
the regular election under the Aus
tralian ballot system.
"We also ask that we may have an
effective fellow servant law; one by
which the employer shall be responsi
ble for the negligence of a fellow ser
vant by which another fellow servant
is injured. If a man is incompetent
in the discharge of his duties and by
reason of such incompetency you are
injured or damaged, there is no good
reason, under any rule of justice, by
which the person who employs that
man, and is responsible for that, ought
not to respond in damages."
Governor Toole showed that the ad.
ministration of the state had been
most economical, that many institu
tions had been built and considering
the great progress the financial condi
tion is most gratifying; that the rail
roads had been forced to bear their
share of the taxation, the assessed
valuation of their property having
been raised, under his administration
