THE TEACHER'S INSTITUTE.
The teachers institute which oc
curred last week excited consider
able interest Great Falls. It, how
ever came at the wrong, when nearly
everbody who could otherwise have
attended the institute work was oc
cupied In other matters.
Next year we are sure the institute
will receive much greater attention
than it has this year.
We assert confidentily that
Great Falls is not behind any town
or city in Montana in its interest in
educational. matters. It should be
remembered, however, that this a
town of but two or three years growth
and for that reason it is impossible
for it to take the same stand as a city
of twenty or twenty-five years ex
perience in educational matters.
There has been a constant demand
for residences in Great Falls, and
very few of its residents have the ac
commodations to enable them to en
tertain the teachers from outside;
but in that respect it compares with
even the capital city of Montana, and
in the home of the Territorial Supt,
. In the matter of education it is a;
the end of three years growth much
in advance of Helena when it bad
been a town for fifteen 3 ears. We
venture the prediction, that in the

next five years, it will stand first and
foremost among the towns in the
Territory of Montan. Helena had
been a town for thirteen or fourteen
years before it possessed a school
house worthy the name of a school
house. It is only within a few years
that Bozeman and other towns could
claim school houses, while Great Falls
is today erecting a school house tnat
will compare favorably with any in
In the matter of teachers, Great
Falls will not be behind any . other
town in the territory. It already
pays better wages for the same class
of teachers than does Helena.
That was a very suggestive ques
tion put by a speaker at the territori
al republican convention: "What
have our delegates been saying for
Montana?" While the free traders
were trying to put wool on the free
list and thereby crippling one of the
great industries of Montana, our del
egate to congress said not one single
word against the nefarious scheme,
and during all the debate his voice
has not been heard in one single in
stance denouncing the attempt to
cripple the wool and mining indus
tries of the great territory of Montana.
The voters of Montana should see to
it that the next delegate should fully
represent them in congress on these
Distinguished democrat from the
state of New York, who was on the
democratic ticket for mayor in his na
tive city last year, told a LEADER rep
resentative that he estimated that New
York state would give a majority of
50,000 in favor of Harrison and Mor
ton. He said that the change of dem
ocrats to the republican side is won
derful. The manufacturers and all
of their men, of course, will vote the
republican ticket, and the farmers in
western New York are largely in fav
or of protection, while the dry goods
dealers, merchants and clothiers in
New York city will also favor the re
publican side. He said that there is
no hopes of there being a democratic
majority in the state of New York.
The New York Sun, the most in
fluential democratic paper in New
York city, while favoring the elec
tion of Cleveland, is dealing the
Democracy some telling blows. In
a recent issue it states to the work
men that laborers in the free trade
countries of Europe receive less than
16 cents a day, and impressively asks
the workmen how they would like
that state of affairs to exist in this
country. The Irish World, another
influential paper, which has the great
est following among those oflrish de
scent, is coming out strongly in favor
of Harrison and Morton, and it is ag
ainst Cleveland and his free trade
We understand that W. A. Clark
has been much more of his tune of
late with his family a resident of
Paris than of Montana. So imbued
has he become with the Freneh lan

to Butte a few months ago, he was
obliged to ask a friend what was the
English word necessary to use in con
versation, while he could readily pro
nounce the French word. The Eag

OUR NEXT DELEGATE.
The candidate for delegate to con
gress was the choice unanimously of
the republican territorial convention
It had been conceded for a long
time, that Silver Bow county should
name the candidate for delegate. Sil
ver Bow and Beaverhe;al counties
unanimously fixed upon the choice of
Thomas H. Carter. There had been
some talk before the arrival of the
Silver Bow delegation of various other
prominent republicans, but the
matter had practically been left to
the Silver Bow delegation, and when
the convention went into caucus,
there followed a period of great en
thusiasm. Speech after speech was
made; first from those on the west
side and afterwardt by those on the
east side of the range who stated in
effect that had the choice been left to
them, they could not have selected a
more worthy leader than the one pro
posed. Not a single dissenting voice
was heard. Mr. Carter alone object
ed to the nomination, as it would de
volve upon him the dissolution of
certain business relations, and the
consequent loss of a considerable sum
of money in accepting the nomina
tion. But on finding that he was the
unanimous choice of the convention,
Mr. Carter yielded his personal de
sires, and submitted to the wish of
his party. His acceptance was re
ceived with the greatest enthusiasm.
It cast a gloom upon the democrats
gathered in the opera house, for it
foreshadowed the defeat of the boodle
THE RESOLUTIONS OF THE RE
The resolutions of the republican
territorial convention held at Helena
are fornihie and to the point. They
favor the national platform, approve
of the national republican nomina
tions, oppose the Mills bill as injur
ing and destroying some of the prin
cipal industries of Montana, and cut
ting down the wages of laborers.
They condemn the hypocrisy of
Cleveland's so-called civil service re
form, and his hostility towards the
coinage of silver. They are opposed
to Chinese immigration and censure
the fishery treaty. They condemn
the democratic party for denying to
one million citizens the right of self
government; favor the bureau of im
migration, cutting down Indian res
ervations, the passage of a registra
tion law, and the establishment of a
territorial board of equalization.
They favor the rights of laborers, and
the nomination of Thomas H. Carter
as candidate for delegate.
These resolutions were carefully
drawn, and' are well worthy the care
ful study of voters.
The Cascade county republican
ticket commends itself to every citi
zen in this county. The men on the
ticket in almost every instance, are
men well qualified to fulfill the du
ties of the office for which they are
nominated. They are capable men.
They are men who have the interests
of the county at heart. They are
men of experience. Almost every
one is a tax payer, and some of them
are large tax payers in the county.
They will combine to keep
down the expense of carrying
on the county government. It is a
safe ticket ; one which can be voted
with the feeling that if elected, every
one on the ticket will perform his du
ties fearlessly and carefully.
We shall have more to say about
the qualifications of the various par
ties on this ticket in the future.
Mr. Carter is a young man, who is,
in every sense of the word, the arti
ficer of his own fortune. He has for
six years been a resident of Helena,
and is well and favorably known all
over the territory. He has large in
terests in almost all sections of Mon
tana, and is well known as one of the
leading attorneys of Helena. He will
make a forcible campaign, and will
cause his opponent to rustle in order
to come anywhere near him in the
