Democratic National. Ticket..
ALTON B. PAREER, of New York.
For Vice President-
HI..aR G. DAVS, of West Virginia.
DAVID G. BROWNE.
The democeatlc stAte ticket from
Gov. Toole down to Supt. Kay is one
of which every democrat has reason
to feel proud. There is not a name
upon it which a loyal democrat feels
like passing over as quickly as pos
sible. Every one of the nominees
are good men. Under these circum
stances we expect that the state
ticket will run pretty evenly and
mostly be voted straight, as far as
democrats are concerned. Certainly
that will be the case with David G.
Browne, the candidate for state
treasurer. It would be a very queer
kind of democrat indeed who would
fail to put an X mark in front of his
name on election day, It is there
fore more in the hope that some
republican may read and ponder on
these words than any other reason
that eeases us to say that Mr. David
G. Browne is an ideal man for the
important olfice of state treasurer.
Possessed of executive ability of a
high order and an energy that never
flags or knows an obstacle till it is
surmounted Mr. Browne has done his
part as a pioneer of this great state.
When duty called, Dave Browne was
never deaf. None there are that ever
heard more acutely or answered more
promptly or nobly to the call. The
strong qualities of man which were
his birth right, mellowed and ripened
by experience in the world would
make him an ideal candidate for any
post of responsibility. When to these
qualities is added an unbending
integrity which makes his word as
good as his bond--and either will pass
current as readily as coined.gold with
all who know the man-then we
think we havedescribed an ideal can
didate for state treasurer, and we
know that we have, desetbed David I

Newland's bill. While the bill was
under discussion it was opposed by

house. Among those who fought it
were Mr. Moody, now attorney

Now let us see what some of the
Republican leaders said of this bill.
Mr. Hepburn said:

humble and polite men in this house
I would take the liberty of saying
that the proposition involved in this
bill is one of the most insolent
attempts at larcency I ham eveier$n.

Mr. Moody, the present attorney
"I look with grave apprehension
upon the plan to reclaim the arid
lands of the west."
General Grosvenor spoke of the bill
as proposing "a great national wrong."
After this record of Republican oppo
sition to the measure thati is now tile
law, the Republicans claim all credit
for irrigation legislation for them
selves, and say that irrigation work
would be stopped if Parker is elected.
But Parker is committed by his
platform and by his letter of accept
ance to a policy of developing
America, of building up our own
country instead of wasting money to
hold a 60 cent market in the far-off
islands of the Pacific.
Parker knows that one American
family is worth more as a market
than 100 Filipino families.
0h, MR LINDSAY!
In his very first speech in the cam
paign, at Lewistown, September 29,
Mr. William Lindsay made an inex
cusable error. -He was explaining
why he voted ainst the initiative
and referendum bill in the fifth legis
lature, in 1897, and said:
"The Helena Independent, which
today is accusing me of being insin
cere because I voted against that
bill, opposed it with all the determi
nation it could oppose any measure-
fought it until it secured its defeat."
Mr. Lindsay is not a man who
would intentionally make a misstate
ment of facts. But these are faps:
The Helena Independent did4 not op
pose the initiative and referendum or
the initiative and referendum bill at
any time during 1896 or 1897. On the
contrary, it supportedt4he measure
and the bill most heartily. It pub
lished a series of editorials in support
of the initiative and referendum in
January, 1897, had them reprinted in
pamphlet form, and had a copy of the
pamphlet laid on the desk of every
member of the legislature.
It was the Republican Helena Her.

Mr. Lindsay practically admits that
he sat through that session of the
legislature and did not know the dif
ference between a republican evening
paper and a democratic morning pa
per. He practically says that he vot
ed against the bill because he thought
a democratic paper was fighting the
bill! Now, isn't that a pretty excuse?
