HAVRE IS HAVRE
The reputation our city enjoys of
always doing the right, thing at the
right time was never better exempli
fled thaln in the reception accorded
Governor Norris on Wednesday Sep
tember 30, the date set for the active
opening of the campaign in C'houteau
county. As a matter of f runality,
the Bryan & Kern Club appointed a
committee of twenty to meet Gover
nor Norris, and extend to him a
welcome to our midst, but in addition,
the people, regardless of party, resolved
themselves into a great big committ ee
of reception, and it is safe to predict
that the generous welcome extended
by Havre citizens to the Governor of
Montana, will remain with him as a
treasured remembrance while life
shall last. Said the Governor:
"The people of Havre have a repu
tation of being alive, and Pully abreast
of the times, on any question affecting
the building up and promoting the
interests of their community and the
Oommonwealth at large, as well as for
a generous hospitality, but one has to
come among you to fully realize how
well earned is this reputation. I un
derstand, of course, that my reception
is in the main and very properly in
tended as a welcoine to the chief ex
ecutive officer of our state, but you
folks have a way of making a man
feel at home, that would almost lead
him into the, belief that your greeting
was for the person and not the
The people of our nation can always
be relied upon to stand together on
any question of vital national impor
tance. During a presidential cam
paign we are, as a people, without
doubt divided amongst ourselves, and
with all the power at our command
we stand for and work for the can
didate of tour political choice. This
condition exists up to the day of elec
tion, but after the battle is over, and
the returns are announced and con
firmed, factionalism is buried, and we
recognize only our president-my
president. This is as it should be,
and simply illustrates the fact that
the office created by our people is far
greater than the man it was created
for. It remained for Theodore Roose
velt to undertake to reverse this law
of universal custom.
Mr. Roosevelt could have received
the nomination for president in the
pr-sent campaign, and as the presi
dential nominee could with dignity
and with decency have conducted a
vigorous campaign in his own and his
M r. Roosevelt positively refused the
nomination. Just as positively he in
sisted on the nomination of Mr. Taft
as his successor, and having succeeded
in forcing his candidate onto his un
willing party, Ihe now, with an
effrontery at once astounding and
disgusting, undertakes to hide the
ample dimensions of his candidate
behind the shield of his own per
Mr. Roosevelt, by word of mouth, c
has been an ardent advocate of the t
'square deal;" the democratic party v
is an advocate of the square deal s,
policy, and would prefer to retire Mr. n
Taft to private life as the result of an
open handed, fair and above board
campaign fight, but inasmuch as Mr. S
Roosevelt has seen lit, without any
license or warrant of law, or any
political precedent whatsoever, to
forswear the dignity of an office which
is dear tb every citizen, regardless of d
party, and belittle himself, his otffice i
and his cause, by his unfair, ungen- d
erous and untruthful at tack upon the 2
personality and motives of Mr. Bryan,
we will accept with equanimity the f
fact that Mr. Roosevelt is contributing b
largely to the success of our can- e
The alleged republican majority in
Chouteau county will take a lay off
this year. A careful canvass of the
situation gives evidence that is ample
proof of the claim. The election of
Mir. Christler to the legislature is be- I
yond question. This would leave the
fight for the other members be
tween Fox, of Harlem: Rose, of HIavre,
and Cummings, of Fort Benton and

from a geographical standpoint a'ne
should give Fox first place. Add to
this the tact that Mr. Fox is in Overy
respect qualified, is popular, ard is
making a vigorous campaign, and his
election would seem to be certain.
There is no question as to the elec
tion of Judge Tatton to sueceed him
self. The office of district judge is
not considered from a partisan politi
cal standpoint, and when the people
are fortunate enough to have this in
portant office represented by a man so
qualified to meet every require
meat, they will be slow to turn him
down. Judge Tatton will be re
Thomas Dowen will be elected com
The people in the eastern part of
the county ask for recognition oi the
board of commissioners; they are en
titled to it, and will get it, and God
knows it will not hurt to have one
man like Tom Dowen on the board.
L. 0. Hudson, for treasurer, is no
experiment. He has "made good"
and his promise to make good again,
has not come as a dilatory, elesenth
hour pledge, and then only given be
cause it was absolutely forced from
him, but was voluntarily and freely
made, and will be respected, ~Ith no
artful dodger attempts at evasion.
Ike Rogers, for sheriff, is making a
thorough canvass of the county. and
if there was a man in the county who
did not know and like, and was the
genial candidate's friend before, it is
a cinch that Ike will find him and
make a friend during his campaign.
Mr. Rogers will run away ahead of
his ticket in all the outlying pre
cincts, and his majority in Havre,
will surely set a lot of people to won
dering "how the play came up."
Coming to the otffices of clerk of the
court, and county attorney, the cir
cumstances surrounding the candidacy
of the republican nominees for these
offices are such as to preclude any idea
of their elections. In the case of Mr.
Boyle, it is not believed that the
people will countenance the establish
ment of a precedent to give any man
a life tenure to a county office, nor
will they uphold his failure to fulfill
the promises he made four years ago
to Hyndman et al. The circumstan
ces attendant upon the nomination of
the republican candidate for county
attorney are such, that, trying to
keep in view the fact that he is at
least cast in the image of his Maker,
all men would prefer to draw the
mantle of charity, rather than exploit
to the public view, the story of the
treachery involved in his nomination.
We do not believe that the voters of
Chouteau county, personal likes or
dislikes aside, will set the seal of their
approval on this nomination. We do
not believe that the voters of this
county will set the example before
their sons-the coming voters-of ad
vocating in the slightest degree, the
selling of a man's birthright for a
mess of pottage.

ALHAMBRA HOT SPRINGS
An Unexcelled Health and Pleasure
T IlIS beautiful resort is situated on the Great
Northern Railway sixteen miles south :of
Helena. All trains stop within 1000 feet of
the hortel, avoiding the long stage drives necessary
to reach other similar resorts in Montana. ¶ The
climate at SUNNY SIDE is delightful, there being
but few days in summer or winter when the heat or
cold is uncomfortable. The surrounding mountains
act as a barrier to the winds of winter, and serve to
temper the warm breezes of summer. The high al
titude renders the air healthy and invigorating,
while the absence of moisture makes it an ideal
place for indulging in hot baths without the attend
ing dange.F of taking cold. ¶ The ýrative properties
of these waters when used for bathing and drinking
purposes, are equal to any in the world.
