TiE CITY PARK LAW. Montana's towns and liiles are iuov ing forward to piaces of conseltueni" where airs affected by their more prcr tentious sister cities, east and west, tir'' decidedly becoming. The latest things in public libraries are sported by the con fident, progressive citlet of the state, and city parks are all the rage wiherevn rv Inviting surroundings suggest Ibis form of ornament to complete i(he buldcing charms of the state's priucipial I wtos. News comes from Missoula that te1 hearts of the residents of that plin have been made glad by the doncat on of a tract of land for park purposes tic at will materially enhance the pleasures of life in the Bitter Rtoot metropolls, aurc be, in all respects, Just what Mid cclcc needs. And, by the way, ticse a ciy parks are right in line with the siatt a public sentiment if the measure of Mon tancts feelings in the maitter can cc gauged by its last legisltclive licy. At the capital a year ago the t"giislctu .c was all agog over a city park ic ,c" Ii:ct was, and is still, considered about til finest thing of its kind that hay hiii turned out by hard-work Ing salocs acy where. Sc. full and ccacplcte are the provisions of Senate 11111 No. c ,4 a I tic measure is cl signa ted, I hat it covec' six full pages of the puiliscud ci4sici laws. According to tlhe ccncs (' it on tana's city park law it becccccc the dut' of the governor itc clicacint six c i/it'n of the state's firstcl-'liss citics, enc i^ec, acting with the ciIly'a ct.ycr, nrc livy taxes, establish regulations act I do ill other acts anil things ccg c sstary I n ic tl a park in first-cciss working ocdc r. So faros known, Montancas first-cl at Mi 'it ccs are not clamoring for city iii 'Its to the extent of complying with thc tioVlots of the measure. It ic nectscsctcy, ic order to launch the project along tproip iir lines, that resident free-holders to thic nucruit of two hundred pc ttion the sLatet' ex ecutive and ask that the machii iy oi' the city park law be set in motion. So far ciutte resident free-holi'rs to the number of two huncirc d have nit eccn able to get together on the ambtitious undertaking. Humw mncny steps in a.d Vance of today the date when scuch action will be taken is set is a matter of conjecture merely. Certain it is that other Montana cities seem to get ciit parks whenever they want them, ancd, by the grace of H4'aate Miil No. 05 itutie can follow suit whenever tle spirit moves her citizens to action. The story that the press dispatched bring from San Francisco concerning the arrest of a man and wife for counter felting belongs under the head of sense tilonil talk of the day. Two society peo ple, real high-flyers In fact, were taken from their elegant home after enter taining a brilliant party of friends and incarcerated In jail, charged with coun terfeiting. They admit having coined bad money at the rate of thousands of dollars per month. Now it is in order for the pair to get 'honde at a bargain counter figure, jookey with justice in the courts and eventually go free. 11ad they counterfeited on a small scale, the net a hich setins to conveniently catch small transgressors would have them tied fast in its meshes and on the wai' to serve their sentences inside of a week. It is likely that they have enough gee] money to put up a fuimidaljle legal fight. Captain Clark will be the only fighting eailor in attendance at King Edward's coronation. Unless Admiral Cervera of Spain attends the ceremonies, Captain Clark will be the only man among the distinguished naval officers present who has taken part in a great sea fight. In view of the fact that the United States will send a real naval hero to the coro nation, and the others of the deep-sea contingent will not be of the hardy old sea-dog class, it would be eminently fit ting for congress and the president to give (lark the rank of admiral before he leaves for the scene of the royal cere Wnon ies. Kalispell way torched recently by flumes that for a time threatened to re duce 4he 2place to ashes. Too late, the residents of that city received a lesson concerning proiwr precautionary meas tures to prevent disastrous fires. Not in cities the size of Flathead county's capt tal alone are such precautions necessary, but in every section of the state where negligt nee concerning fire apparatus is likely to lead to disastrous results.

Polities aside, Henry Watterson is a man whose popularity with members wf his profession is without boundary or limitation. He stands among the guild of workers of the daily press as almost the only remaining representative of the editors of the old school whose Indi viduality shone out through the types, who timade their pages distinctive, origi nal and impressive, and who by the force of terse and clean-cut Anglo-Saxon words drove home many a truth to minds not ordinarily receptive to dog natlic teaching. Watterson has picked out Andrew Carnegie as a subject for missionary work, and to the steel mag neto who, through the newspapers, has ridden upon the top of popularity's wave, he makes a suggestion that Car o gle should not fail to give the consuld eration that is asked. The Kentucky edlior isks Carnegie to give out of his ab!iundiinie an endowment for a homne for superannuated newspaper men. >eakig of the men for whom he makes the uippeii, the I ourier-Journal's editor says: "We speak in the name of those Aol iiers of the day and night whose life fro mn the mudihi* to the grave is one long elaii--one great, heroic struggle with iistity, that destiny whose mainspring is glory: that destiny which, begun in the love of l1tters and adventure, lI to end only in viioery or the puorhouie; that itstiny which, for all its pitfalls of ow-i sort or another-of drink too ~fi it--iof the per ils of the town ini every shahs has ounMtie fetl nome of them a gtlihst of tie nobility of truth for truths a aki, along with a little fleeting l ;moi +}f famn--for many of them the siihilinii, all-Matisfying emotion of duty liravily done, for all of them the travail of Ili( HihnI1,trn--that ieStiny which, un Ili i ti s"i viei of the army and navy, u ties lit t routniit inn and no penslun in a wont, the working boys on the tin, th*i HilIInt singers of the prep,.; w ih, iibinning at 15, to be no longer olli iint it i,0, uniles along the route ilwy have soi-ailed some safe retreat or 'iulet corner, where they may work out Ili, h"r tirawndltnlty the whitle before the Bnlt 1un11ons that eqiualizes us all mont.ý I. ý,I.o thema home.,, In thn enming mnunielpal election in .tea lii the issue will be high lieense vs. ii- so-, and placing restraints upon evils Chat art infringing upon the city's husinei a lnd residence district.

Embezzlements in Montana seem to have reached the epidemic stege. BLAMING THE ENGINEER [San lranfelco Bulletin.] Eastern newspapers seems dlspose(t4 fasten upon the engineer responsibility for the recent collision in the tunnel oi the New York Central railroad. One6,J these journals says: "Common prudqpce demanded that the engineer in charge of the train which carried the travel should 3roceed slowly and cautiously in the darkness, which shut the signals from his view." This comment, standing by Itself, independent of the conditions which compelled the engineer to diser gard caution, would be fair and just, , But the same journal says: "The Cena tral's tunnel on Manhattan island Is used by more than five hundred trains every 24 hours, and this accident occurred daw. Ing a portion of the day when the in. bound traffle is heavy." The trains siao ceed each other on the same track with two or three minutes between them. Assuming that 2G0 trains pass through the tunnel in the same direction each 24 hours, a train would pass each six minutes. Under these conditions, If the engineer proceeded cautiously he would, if he should lose more than about two minutes of time, be overtaken by the train next in order. The tunnel is at all times so full of steam and smoke that a train could not ie seen at a distance of 30 yards. The engineer on the train gave a white signal, which meant, "Proceed." The green signal, at a litle distance, which meant "Caution," the engineer did not see. Not seeing this signal the engineer was pro ceeding at too great a speed, with the result that he crashed into the train that ought to have been a couple of minutes ahead of him. Of course, it is easy to say that the company, in arranging signal language, had observed all necessary precautions. If It were certain that the engineer would read all signals correctly, whether they were visible through the smoke and stearn or not, accidents would not occur. But, W9ith trains running under such All who contribute to the McKinley memorial fund will be given a certificate as a souvenir of the popular movement to erect a monument to a president slain by a foe to our form of government. No matter how small the contribution, the certificate will be given just the same. It will be of value as an his 'torlical memento as long as the govern ment lives. Butte will lead all other cities of the state in the contributions to the Mc Kinley memorial fund. In several public places in the city funds 4's been started and all are growing in a satsifactory manner. There seems to be a disposition to make the twenty-five cent contribution the maximum.

Passen gers in trains assume that the manage ment makes reasonable precautions against accident. It is not for the pas senger to say whether or not the con ditions of travel are such that he has more than an even chance of arrival at his proposed destination. It is only after an accident that he realizes the danger to which he was exposed. The New York Central rail road has made many millions of money for its owners, and yet every trainload of people it carries to or from the city has been subject to such accidents as that Which occurred a few days ago. It has been for some years practicable to substitute electric power for steam, and to make the tunnel as light as if the sun shone into it. It is the steam and smoke which make the tunnel especially danger ous. No possible signaling system, no possi ble selection of engineers, could provide against such accidents as that under consideration. Smoke and steam are more dense at one time than at another, and even an engineer should not be held responsible for an accident resulting from failure to read a signal that at the ilme wis not visible.

DEMOCRATIC FINANCIERS [Minneapolis Journal.] The democratic members of the house committee on coinage, weights and meas ures have agreed upon a minority report against the bill providing for maintain Ing the legal tender silver dollar at parity with gold. They contend that only the -notes and bonds are payable in gold or sliver at the holder's option. This contention is not valid, for the act of congress, March 14, 1900, provided for the interchangeability of our currency with gold, but omitted to prescribe the mode of maintaining the parity of the standard silver dollars with gold. The Hill bill does by directing the sec retary of the treasury to exchange gold for legal tender silver dollars when the latter are paid for exchange In the slum of $5 or any multiple thereof, using the gold reserve fund for the purpose, the fund to be increased to 33 per cent of the outstanding greenbacks plus 5 per cent of all the outstanding silver dollars. The opposition of the democrats to this measure reveals the democratic ten dency to a phantom silver currency. They are yet afflicted with the disease df silverlsm. Under the act of March 14, 1900, the secretary of the treasury is redeeming silver certificates with gold. The act forbids the treasury to issue sil ver certificates of higher denominations than $10, and when certificates of larger size are received for redemption, smaller ones have to be issued in their place, and the supply being deficient, the treasury redeems with gold certificates. During the past year large amounts of silver certificates have been thus re deemed with gold. The bill in charge. of the couniultee is designed for the very proper purpose of keeping the all ver certificates and the silver dollars which 'the certificates represent always worth 100 cents each, gold value. The democratic mind of Bryanite call ber still objects to the term "gold re demption," more or less. The objection is useless, for this nation has had such an experience with silver and has suf fered so much from the assaults upon the public credit that there will be no recession from the present attitude on national finance. There is much to do yet in the way of financial reformation and the tendency is in the right direction. The next step in reform will be to better the conditions of note issue and secure greater elas ticity and suffIciency to our bank note currency so as to make it adequate to meet periods of stringency. Te bank note circulation has fallen off some $6,000,000 since September last, due largely to the purchase of 2 per cent bonds at high premiums by the govern ment, these bonds having been deposited with the government as basis of circu lation and their withdrawal as security decreasing the currency issued against them and put in circulation.
