A SQUABBLE FORl OFFICE.
The Democratic convention which
met Saturday last was a terrible un
harmonious affair and meets with the
denunciation of the Democrats from
all parts of the country. The caucus
was held the night before with a view
of pacifying the different factious of
the party, but it was of little avail.
The convention met at 10 a. m., at
whidh time the outlook for harmony
was so bad that the party leaders
connluded to adjourn until 2 p. m. in
order to give) them time to patch tip
the dilficulties. At two p. m. the
eAhvention was called to order, and
the ballotting for various candidates
eJmmenced. J. C. Bundly was eleo
ted chairman and H. Iingwald secre
tary. Upon the nomination for
probate judge there was fun. Mr.
Stanton, who was a candidate for
oflfice and his brother' were in the
hall busily electioneering for votes.
The efforts of Mr. Stanton were in
vain. There was a feeling on the
part of the opposition that Mr. Stan
ton was a weak candidate, who has
been anbiquitous seeker for office, and
consequently was defeated. Mr" Dyas,
of Cascade, was appointed in his
place. This is regarded by many as
a very poor selection on account of
his not being qualified to perform the
the duties pertaining to that office.
Brnest Ringwald, who with E. B.
Largent and John Dyas had been an
aspirant for the oftfie of clerk and re
corder, was nominated. This was a
sare spot to the Sun River and Cas
eade delegation who are threatening
vengeance. The convention was some
what taken aback when Pat Sweeney
refused to allow his name to be used
as candidate for the Sheriff's office,
and instead of nominating a Sun
River man, and thereby pacifying
that section of the country, the con
vua.tion made the grievous mistake
of nominating Charles Turner instead
a very good man in his way. but who
it is said has little qualifications for
that office Messrrs iun, Wgner and
.ickards for county commissioners.
Mr. Ulm, it is said, has declared him
self a republican, and it is extremely
doubtful it he will accept the nomin
atitu. The convention was reduced
to t he neceaaity of selecting forcounty
, uperintendent, a well-known lady
of decided republican proclivities.
Upon the whole, the selections made
were etrem.ely weak. The sections
of Cascade and Sun River were to
tally ignored, and the curses heard
upon the street after the convention
indicate that there will be a big re
publican vote in those localities this
fall should the republicans avoid the
squabble of the democrats and un1i e
upon carefully selected candidates,
giv.ng each section its just and prop.
er representation on the ticket
The Tribune having rushed its
own slate through, now seeks to di,
tate to the republican nominations.

The Methodist Episcopal Church
of Great Falls now needs only the
finishing touches. We have been
watching with great intersLt the or
ection of the building, and are ex
ceedingly gratified to chronicle the
progrlss made. It is the first public
building undertaken evincing thats
confidence in the permanency of our
growing city, it deserves, an I necess
ary to assure inwvestors that we possess I
that faith in our future that gives in- 4
creased value to our realty, WV hen such
a corporation as a large and influen
tial church operating in all communi- I
ties comes to so new and promising
a region as this, it shows that there l
is something to warrant such an ex
penditure. The church is simply a
gem. Situated on the corner of I
Sixth street and Second avenue North 4
facing toward Sixth street, it is in full
view of Central avenue, and as seen i
by persons coming into town and
leaving as well as from different I
stand points of the city, it stands a
monument of skill, good sense and
liberality. It is built of brick of i
Gothic style of architecture. The
roof has a beautiful pitch and is con
structed of the best material, Cedar
shingles have been used and the
work all through has been first-class.
Its Gothic windows and doors can
not be excelled and just as soon as
the plasterers have finished their work
the church will be used.
It is now thought that in two weeks
the room can be used temporarily.
The building is 28x54 feet extreme
measurements, and for the size and
age of our town, it is not excelled in
any community. Our citizens who
have contributed and will contribute,
to the Board of Church Extensions of
the Methodist Episcopal Church, the
Ladies Aid Society. and the pastors,
Rig in and Van Orsdoll who have
rendered such official aid are to be
congratulated on the completion of
such an enterprise.
Roberts & Coombs the contrac
tors have done effective work. Suc
coes to the enterprise.
The business men, tax payers and
thoie interested in good government
should rescue the Republicans from
the hands of the hoodlumus and men
of doubtful reputation and assume
control. Of all men they are the
ones most deeply interested in care
ful management of their affairs.
No man whom you would not trust
with any private business, is fit
to manage public business. Good
men, capable men. men who have
lived in this community for some
time, and who therefore are well
known should be selected whenever
possible. Then will you have men
who will be elected and when elected
will make good officials.
The Democrats are in sad straits
Their only hope is to split up the Re
publicans. For some months a world
of xpolitical bosses have tbeen giving
forth their views in a plausible state
and seeking to pull down some prom
inent Republicans, suddenly the De
mocratic Tribune and Independent
began to boast him up and with well
concealed irony assume that he was
the mouthpiece of the Republican
lparty. So inflated did he become
that it brought him notoriety and
caused his record to be investigated.
It now transpires that he worked for
1 Democratic success in Choteau coun
i ty somne !years :agond after doing a
great deal of talking two years ago.
abstained himself fronm the polls. It
e is suspected that he has tbeen inluee
ced by Doclumtrats who hope through
! 1him to break up the Republican party,
this accounts for their support of him
but its too thin it will not win.

The county commissioner is one of
the most important officers. For these

For county clerk and recorder we
hear T. A. Hunt menitoned. By
careful work he can defeat Ringwald.
For probabte judge, H. P. Rolfe
the present incumbent has a stong
following and would be elected. Mr.
Rolfe has meted out justice impar
tially and fearlessly. He is a large
tax-payer and has been instrumental
in keeping expenses cut down. The
nomination was offered him two years
C. H. Benton is the only candidate
mentioned thus far as county attor
ney. Mr. Benton is a new comer
but can be elected. There is some
talk for D. H. Churchill for assessor
or George Budingtou who-has made
an efficient deputy. For Supt of
Public Instruction we have heard

Some changes will doubtless be
made in the onmes given above, but
they are for the most part strong men
and will make a winning race.
Cascade county is not the only one
which has a Democratic squabble on
its hands. Choteau county had a big
one the other day. The two, Todd
and Brown factions had a tie at first,
but adjourned, and after adjournment
the Todd faction got away with the
pie. And the defeated ones are

to stir up opposition against members
of their own party whose regard for

The biggest joke is that perpetra

different points of the county ender

spite and th:n returns with the report
that the whole county is against them.
OtDwyer in the Tribune and Inde
pendent says there is no split among
the lDemocrats but Stanton tells a
1i different story in the Rising Sun. It
is not a sign of harmony when two
Democratic papers differ so widely.
