In Cascade County.

Falls. The spacious hall was filled to

Tomorrow will be determined whether
the republican party in Montana has the
dignity and power to assert itself. He
had too much faith in the intelligence
of the people of Montana for one moment
to believe that they would tomorrow go
to the polls and by their votes slaughter
every interest dear to them.
Whenever the tariff policy of the coun
try has declared for revenue only and not
for the protection of American industries,
our industries have been. paralyzed and
our land has languished in panic and
If Thomas H. Carter had been in
Toole's place, you would have found him
resisting the cutting down of the duty on
lead. You would have found him stand
ing up in his seat in the house of repre
sentatives, with every vital interest of the
territory of Montana throbbing warmly
at his heart and demanding that those in
terests should be protected.
Col. Botkin, following said, that the
republican party is gloriously right;
while the democratic party has always
been wrong on every great question that
has come before the country during the
past 40 years.
Cleveland pledged himself to the re
formation of civil service; but there have
been more removals for political causes,
during the past four years than during
any previous twenty years in the history
of our nation. Cleveland thought the
election of a president to a second term
was highly improper. He has convinced
a considerable proportion of the Ameri
can people that the re-election of at least
one president would be a national
calamity. He has contributed $10,000
towards the election of a president who
deserves the honor less than any other
American citizen. The democrats found
themselves restored to power with no
policy to carry out until Mr. Cleveland
gave them one; and now they wish he
hadn't. Obedient to Cleveland's behest,
the Mills bill was prepared and passed
the democratic house, only a republican
senate standing between the coun
try and a measure which would have
brought distress and ruin. The demo
crats howl about the surplus in the treas
ury. It has never been the habit of the
democrats to have any surplus. The last
democratic treasurer in Lewis and Clark
county was opposed to a surplus. He
operated on the surplus so successfully
that it has taken four years of republi
can administration to restore it.
The protective tariff stimulates inven
tion and talent, for which the American
people stand preeminent among the
nations of the earth. His remarks were
L. A. Winchester is doing some effica
cious work in sinking wells in different
parts of the city.
An Infamous Attack.
The outrageous attack made by J. P.
Dyas upon his opponent, who has shown
him already too much magnanimity,
should meet the condemnation of demo
crats and republicans alike. It is a silly
story, anyway. No reasonable man would
believe that a candidate would give a
stranger pasters or stickers of a man on
the opposite ticket. Mr. Rolfe has been
working hard for the success of the
whole ticket. Mr. Rolfe has not said a
word against his opponent during the
whole campaign, though he might
easily have said something effectually.
It remained for John Dyas to procure
perjured affidavits and make a silly attack
in return for this magnammity. It will
gain him no votes. The affidavits have
been completely refuted.
The Election Returns.
Having made arrangements with the
Western telegraph company here for
complete election returns, county, terri
torial and national, the readers of the
LEiADEn may expect, inl our issue of
Wednesday morning, to be able to form
a pretty accurate, if not a conclusive
judgment as to who will be the next
president of the United States, the next
delegate to congress from Montana, and
the forthcoming officials of Cascade
I have made arrangements for the elec
