THE MINER'S WAIL 2
It attempts to Hoodwink the )'
New Voters of Monta!na.
But the People Have Long Memo
ries and Have It In for the si
Dems. and Pops. st
It would appear to citizens of Mon- e
tana who have been here more than -
two years that the Blultte Miner has a 0
tenderfoot editor, judging from the 1i
following in a late issue of that pa- I
per.
When democratic officials were in t
charge of the affairs of tlie state their b
administration was marked by h'ion- r
esty, conscientiousness and Ia fearless
discharge of dity. The right.ful
wishes of the people were never ig
nored, and their rights as citizens of f,
a sovereign state were never abrid'ed. t
It remained for republican otlicials to
do this, and it is to a republican gov
ernor the fact is dueo that during the
time when it most needed full rep- I
resentation in the law-nmaking cham- t
hers of the nation Montana was da- b
prived of that representation and de- hi
frauded of the ritfht assured every
state in the union of which it is oneI P
of the richest and proudest. All tlhis
did not occur so long' ago that the ni
people have forgotten it and they are t
only biding their timeý to show that
the memory of that wrong lives still c
strong within, them. The democrats a
will control the legislature and will
elect two senators from that party to
represent Montana in the senate.
D)emocratic oflicials never "were in
charge of the affairs of the state for
the reason that the people of the state
were too wise to place them there.
In earlier days, before Montan be
came a state, the democratic party
had full control in thli legislature of t
the territory and of the elect ions. By t
reason of the latter tlhey perpetrated
the most shameless frauds at the polls
that any community ever suffered by, t
in some cases carrying them so far
that the opposition never even suc
ccceded in electing a township consta
ble. Legal voters were driven fronm
the polls by shotguns in tile hands of
democratic judges of election and men
were knocked down by democratic
sheriffs for attempting only to exer
eise the right of challenge. (Gaining
control of the territorial legislature
by such actions, they gerrymandered
the territory into council districts so
that to all seeming not a single repub
lican could be elected to the territor
ial council, and only the great per
sonal popularity of the late Frank I .
Worden in Missoula and Deer Lodge
counties enabled him to be elected
the solitary republican in a body of
twelve. And later, they even went
so far in the territorial council as to
disfranchise a whole county in order
to unseat a gentleman who was elect
ed as a joint councilman by a plural
ity of some 150,to give the seal, to a.
democrat who publicly stated that he
was fairly defeated and had no legal
right to the seat. Yes, they were
noted then for a fearless discharge of
duty-as democrats-for there was no
opposition strong enough to stay their
unlawful hands. T'hat was the kind
of "honesty, conscientiousness and
fearless discharge of duty" the demo
cratic party gave the people of the
territory, and is one of the reasons
the people unseated them from their
high places and sent the state of
Montana into the tiunion repub
lican. And yet the editor of the
Miner has the temerity to tell old
timers that the rightful wishes of the
people never were ivgnored and their
rights as citizens never abridged. No
doubt, to his way of thinking, the
wishes of the people to get rid of the
democratic party of force and fraud
were Inot 'rightfulll wishes."
The Miner goes on to blame the re
publican governor for the fact thati
r Montana had only one representative
in the United States senate when she i
should have had two. Tlhis Is a ster- I
eotvped crv of the democratic presst
of the state,and is nothing muore tloin
a huge jokeas the 1ieciple understand
it. The ones who were to blamie frr
the failure of the legislature to elict
a senator eighteen moniiths ago, andl
so left the state without full repre
sentation "during the very time when
it was most needed" were the demo
cratic members of the last legislature,
primarily, and the three populists,
secondarily. In joint ballot for a
succesor to Senator Sanders the pop
ul:ists voted wiuh the democrats on
every ballot and so gave that party
sufficient votes to elect a senator. The
voting strength of the democrats in
joint ballot was 35, one less than a
majority over all; the republican vote
was 33,or three less than a majority
over all; the populists had three votes
in all. Now, it can be plainly seen
that, with the populists voting with
the democrats,as they did. that party
could have at any time after the bal
loting began elected a senator and
given Mfontati a full representation
ifn the upper branch of government
"at the very time when it was most
needed." Yet the legislative repre
sentatives of the party which the
>Miner designates aa"l'honest: consei
ent: end fearless. in the discharge
of du.v," entirely ignoring the
"rig. i li wishes of the people," lent si
themselives to one (, the most dis
grace: 'l factional fights that ever
sullied the fair name of a sovereign
state: became willing tools of two
men,one of whom was spending mon- l:
ey freely to buy his way int(o the
United States senate, and the other a
was giving up just as freely to preveclt
his doing so, on account. of persJoal
animosity. The rights of thIe people f
to representation were brazenly ig
nored and the election of a senator
became simply a battle of money.
Tihe battle was kept up day after day
until the last day of the session was r
reached, and thle r iult was a vatcallcy
for two cars. So mucli for the part
the democratic party played in the
political drama which has been a dis.
grace to the stat.e ever since. The d
ppopulist members at any time duri ngo
the tight, and especially after it haild
been demonstrated that the people c
had no hope from the democratic t
party in seeing tlhat their "righls as
citizens of a sovereip;n state were '
never abridged,'" always had it in
their power to join with the repnhli
cans in clecting a United States sen
ator. Their three votes wouldI have
just proved sulficient. But they wal-v
lowed as deep ill the mud as the demr- i
ocrats in the mire; they gave them
selves up to the pursuit of boodle as
greedily as ever did a demrcratic
ward rustler inthe tenderloin districts
of New' York city. and to tlhemn as
much as to the democrats does the
blame att ach for the vacancy in Mlol
tana's senatorial representation t 'iat
the very time when it most needed
full rep)resentation in the law-mak- 1
ing chamber of the nation.:' Verily,
the people of the slate have little to
thank either of those two parties for
during the past two years.
The Miner goes o(i, in the extract
iquoted above,to blame the republican
governor for not calling that same
gang together again, that tlhe dis
graceful acts of those days might be
repeated d ad perchance the hoodle of
the Miner's owner prevail to purchase
a senatorial seat. The governior was
right, and thousands of honest demto
crats throughlout the state halve ip
plauded his action. Tlle gang lthl
heaped enough disgrace upon the fair
name of the state, alld the lpeoplle,
who had no interest i tihe personal
e differences of delnocratic millionaires,
did lnot, care to have the limasulre
thereof increased. This is a fair
presentation of the way in which the
tdenmocratic antd lpolulist legislators
reprcesented their constituents in tile
last legislative assembly, and as the
Miner unwittingly but truthfully re
ma rks: 'All this did not occur so
Slong ago that the people have forgot
ten it and they are ionly biding their
0 time to show that the memory of
thati wrong lives still strong within
° them."
r Ais for the claim that "demnocrats
d will control the legislature and will
i elect two senators from thalt Ipart to
h represent Montana in the senate," it
is too preposterous to disicuss.

BOTHI .MEASURES SHIOULD PASn. F
The house has passed a well con
sidered measure for the consular in
spection of emigrants hound for this 0
country before thlev leave I lie other
side. The' senate has substituted for
this a bill to keep foreign anarchists
from coming to the Inited States.
T'hey are both good measures andl it
is desirable that both become the
law. So far from antagorizing each
otlierthe Stone hill would make Sen
ator Ilill's anarchist bill more elffect- of
ive by making the United Statescon
suls on the other side judges in the 1'
lirst instance of the availability and i
desirabilit.y of the intended imi
gra n t s.
T'he two bills are now in con
ference, anld the conlferees, inllstad
of weighing one against the other, i l
slhould merge themn in one lmesasurle,
emibodying the essential features of If
each. Our immigratioin laws at pres- .
Cut forbid the coming here of certain el
