SU=BSCRIPTION PRICE, $2.00 PER YEAR C
Entered as second-elans matter March 8. 1906.!
at the poetofice at Glendive. Mont.. under the
Act of Congress of March 3. 1879. .
THURSDAY. DEC. 26, 1912.
The end of the year finds the F
country in better condition than 0
ever. as regards prosperity of every A
kind and general conditions in par
ticular. The Democrats will come a
into power under conditions not
duplicated in this country for "
(!ecades. The path of President
Wilson and his assistants may not h
be strewn with roses, but they will S
have better working conditions than q
have prevailed in the country for a h
generation. When the extra ses- a
sion is called and a thorough revi- r
sion made of the tariff, a long step sr
will have been taken towards put- s'
ting the :ountry on a better pros
perity footing than it has ever en- s
joyed. Trust regulation will also a
prove an immense factor in the S
future prosperity of the country. S
This paper joins in wishing all its b
readers and the public generally t
the most prosperous New Year im- r
aginable. We are at the dawn of a
new era, which holds much in store C
for all of us who take advantage e
of the opportunities offered for v
self improvement and material c
Protection No Longer Necessary. a
In view of the fact that nearly all r
important manufacturers are sell- d
ing their goods in foreign markets
cheaper than they are at home a
shows that "protection" in the t
way of a tariff is no longer v
necessary to our manufacturing in- 1
dustry. However the revenue re
quired for running the government I
is so great that a very radical reduc- l
tion in the tariff cannot be made, I
and it is not believed that the pro
posed tariff bill will serve as any I
sort of a check on the very healthy 2
and general prosperity which the 2
country is now enjoying. I
Pensions For Ex-Presidents.
The generous act of Andrew i
Carnegie in offering to provide a1
pension of $25,000 per annum to our a
ex-presidents until they are provid
ed for by the United States Govern
ment providing for pensions fori
ex-presidents; so that Legislative
Executive and Judicial appropria- I
tion bill was reported with a pen
sion of $17,500 per annum for the
two expresidents This item, how- I
ever, has been stricken out of the 4
bill, and so they will not be pen
sioneti at present. -
Chairman Underwood of Alabama
has announced that Tariff hearings e
will begin on January 6 and he ex
tends an invitation to everyone who 1
is interested in the operation of the p
tarriff law to express his or her 2
views before the Ways and Means 2
Committee. Chairman Underwood r
expects to have his bill ready to be
passed the first week of the extra
session of Congress which President- 2
elect Wilson will call soon afer his 2
The Abolition Of The Court Of
Congress has abolished the Court
of Commerce which will be effect
ive on the 4th of March next. This
Court exercised appellate power
from the Interstate Commerce
Commission in regulating freight
rates and passenger rates in railway
tariff. No one but the great and
unscrupulous corporations them
selves will shed any tears at the
early demise of this court.
