It's all right. Your editorial which
appeared in your issue of September

It is a matter of regret that our
white citisens are encouraging the
free excursion (ostensibly given by
the colored people of Butte, but in
reality by Marcus Daly) to Anaconda
that is billed to leave here Monday
morning, Sept. S4th. To make the
scheme catchy and popular it is her
aided broadcast in large, gaudy bills
that a grand "Emancipation Celebra
tion" will be had-that Cole's band
will be there sixteen strong-that
Rev, J. P. Watson, of this city, will
make the opening prayer, that the
choir of the A. M. E. church will ren
der appropriate selections, that our
base ball club will play that of Butte,
and numerous other attractions cal
culated to draw a crowd. The ques
tion naturally arises why should this
free blow-out be encouraged by our cit
lsens. It cannot be pleaded that any
good will result therefrom. )day it
not be urged that much harm may
possibly result? Surely it so appears
to a number of our people who have
given the matter serious thought.
Who is there who will advance the
idea that it is neceLary for a Helena
Ito to see Anaconda to order to keep
him loyal to his own city. Such belng
the case why encourage the projected
excursion. Would it not be more
more manly and loyal for every col
ored man, woman and child to spurn
the profered free tickets and stay at
home as a just and deserved rebuke
to the arch schemer who has the et
froutery to come right into our very
household and steal our goods? As a
fnal appeal to our credulous citisens
we would ask "Can there be any good
thing comae out of Jasareth?"
