Very likely it \ill. But what an arg.elent for a st::tesiman to put forth! The developmentI of any natu1iral resource helps, tlhe rail roads. If tlihelt object of legislation were to injutre the railror,i. then every law intended to encourage the investment tf capital and industrial enterprises iswnl, be promptly defeated in congress. Na tiotlal irrigation miay help the railroads, but it will help the people a goodi deal more by supplying them with homes and with surplus produtcts to be stthipped over the railroads. Within a few days the piresident of the United St:tes will sign the irrigation bill, and thus anotlher pledge of thie republican party on bIehalf of the workers of the re public will have beenl faithfully carrited into effect. TWO ISTHMIAN ROUTES. The IIhont dilierrnces of opinionl which exist amiong political leaders at Washing ton as to the respective merits of the two routes across the Isthmlllus of Pain:ama afford sMontana democratic organts an op portunity to cry "fraud" ani "corrulption," yet this di:fiircinc eists among detmoCrat as \well as republicans, and is miiost for tun:ate. htcause a full discussio (f tilhe subject sill lnake plain t ti tle people which of the two routes is the more feasible from an engineering and financial standplloint. Naturally enough the trans continen tal railroad companlies aire otp posed to the canal Iproject, andl they have inhtluence in the senaie on each side of the 0chamlller, hut in the end the canal will he constructed, becautse the repUbliean party andl the American peopl, are plelged to the enterprise and becacuse the forlmer has both the disposition and the ability to perform what it undertakes. 'ihie nmere fact that senators disagree as to the merits of the two routes, instead of being proof of chicanery, shows a desire for hoiinest ii vestigation of a subject of supreme and lasting imlportance to the American na tion.

There is this dillerence between the hio relpublicanll cmvention alllnd the dresing the last national platform of the party, heartily comnetllding the 1policy of ]'resident h'tosevelt and tIh republican eoln.ress, and ,nominating a ticket utinder cireumsttaces tlhat should mlake every republican in the land thrill with pride. The Indiana democratic conventilon, onl the other hand, was at sea without cotm pass. rudder or sail. It railed at every tiline reptublican, in ultter dirregard of the truth; it ldodged tlhe national democratic platform : it darecd tnot mention either lBryan or Cleve'lanl; it ignored the money questlion, and as a whotle gave a pitiful exhibition of political truckling, demna lto-ismt and cowardice. Mr. Bryan himself is plainly disgusted with the entire crew. itn his palter, the Coltuonllter, lab-t week lihe referred to the convention in this plait I tguage: 'The democrats of Indtliatna have adopltel a .rod Iplatform, but they have permitted theilt reolrgatizin. g elemtet to win a victory which will alitnt-ate more democrats than it will draw back to the tIarty. 1'hilte the lplatfo)rm detlnounces the Fowler bill ;an.l the trusts, tland takes a strontg position on the Iqustion of imperialism, the failure of the party to reaffllirm the Kansas (City plat form shows that the tmen who conitrolled the conventlion were either out of har monv with the majority of the party or too timid to give \ice to the conlvictions of the voters. The republican papers have seized upon the action of the convention as ant evi dence that the party has gone back to the ('leland regime, and while this is not true there is enough evidence of it to excite suspicion amtilng those who mllade herioic sacrifices in I ti( to s:ae the Iparty frtom destruction. Nearly every democratic state colnvern tion hichld during the past year has shown the same lisposition to ignore democratic leadership and forget the Kansas City platform. 'f.he democracy conspicuously lacks the courage of its convictions. It must lie ashamed of its own record and dare not reaffirm its own plledges. No amount of albuse heaped utpon Senator Hanna will conceal fromt the American people the difference between the Indiana and Ohio convention. THE OREGON OUTLAWS. " 'Th'lle reader is no doubt following the adventures of the eminent outlaws, Tracy and Merrill, with feverish interest. The three companies of fearsome militia, aide4 bly inltrepid bands of citizens undet the charge of two sheriffs, did not succeed J! capturing them yesterday, and the eventi of today are awaited with deep concern. At this writing the outlaws have decidedly the best of it. They broke through the lines yesterday and proceeded on their vi - torious way, demanding and receivin meat and drink of the embattled farmeB en route. T'hey also provided themselvea with cooking utensils, tobacco and other military supplies. The thlre, colpatlies of state troops and the two sheriffs and their intrepid fol lowers Ifave been called off and returned In their respective haunts of peace. Even the man with tile bloodhoundll s has taken off the dogs for rest and recuperation. Int short, the chase has been abandoned except by a brother of one of tile mur dterel gutards. It is believed that the fugl tives are nIow procceeding quietly on their way to Portland. he countttry is naturally inl a state of terror atnd nbody can blame it.

At the same time the brother who is on the trail is qouite likely to accomplish re: INTER MOUNTAIN ILLUSTRATIONS. The valued New York Tl'rilbune the other day printed 70 tine half tone illustrations, sonle of them three columns in width, in 16 of its pages. The Tribune was the first of the New York daily newspapers to suc cessfully print half-tone illustrations in its regul:ar editions, and is today dointg more and better work in that line than any of its New York contemporaries. This work ill the way of illtstration may be taken as anll indication of twentieth century news palper development. In this connectiont we mllay be pardoned for calling attention to what the Inter Mountain is doing daily in the line of ark work. It is conceded by fair contemtporat ries, and tmost of ottr colttemtporaries are in that class, that this office has as modern and complete an equipment for this class of work as any newsplaper in the country, excelling most of tile nwslpapers and printing establishmlents in the largest cities of the country. This is worth noting, for the making of illustrations is becomiin more and more featture of the art of printing. The facilities of the Inter Mountain for turning out this class of work were well delmonsotrated yesterday when the photo graphs of the miners' parade were taken shortly before noon and the complete half tones of the same made andt printed in our editions which appearedl on t .e streets a few hours later. These negatives were taken in the rain, which is a trying con dition for instantaneous photography. 1'nder more favorable conditions these illustrations would have been even better, but as it was the work is of a superior character and reflects most creditably upon the Inter Mountainl's art department.

Great Northern railroad, took advantage of the lull in business yesterday and enjoyed a buggy ride into the hills south of the city. Be fore starting, however, he took out a life insurance policy simply because he was not going out of town on one of Jim /lill's trains. lie returned all right just before the rain began to fall. "If one desires to get an idea of the number of people there are in Butte he or MAJOR J. E. DAWSON. ,he, as the case may be, should walk around town an hour or two on a holiday," said the major, "and then wander off into the ullinrbs. I'll bet I saw too persons cont ing into the city when I was going out ni the flat yesterday and there were a lot It every place where a stop could be made. 'l he returning ones had gone into the hills for the day early in the morning and were getting back to avoid the approach ing rain storm. "People were everywhere. Some went to IBrown's gulch, some to Nine Mile can yon, soime to lBasin creek, some north, some west and sonic northwest, but the large end of the outsiders was at Columbia Gardens and the dog and horse race tracks.

"It was the greatest reunion ever held in this state," said Mr. Calkins this after noon. "and it certainly was a treat to get Itogcther with the lads who saw fighting in the Philippines. "\Ve recounted old tales and revived many an old joke we experienced while fighting Spaniards and hostile natives. Most of the veterans are young men and it sounded funny to hear some of them talk of the wounds they had received and boast of battle scars. ")One of the boys in particular received a wound one night that cost him no end of teasing. lie had got a permit to leave camp for a few hours and the boys understood pretty well that he was in love with a Spanish girl who lived in the suburbs and that he wished to call on her. "Well, lie hadn't becn gone more than ani hour when we heard shooting and our gallant private came running back with a sharp bullet wound in the left shouldelr. "''lle complained that the natives had made a cowardly attack on hint but we quieted him by saying that all is fair in love anti war, and that as he had been wounded while taking an active part in both lie had no kick coming. "(;Great Falls is an ideal place for a reunion. and they certainly know how to entertain over there The question as to wh;lat kind of uniform the veterans shall adopt for the future., was discussed anl the matter was left witlt the international association to decide.

Letters From the People on Topice of General Interest. About the Sabbath. To the Editor of the Inter Mountain: I.ast Sunday one of Ilutte's well mean ing preachers devoted much of his sermon to what he termed "Desecration of the Sabbath Day." lie had much to say about the matter (iat was good and true but in my opilliOll he overstepped the limit of sound human tsense and( good doctrine. The fact is that Sunday is fast coming to serve its purpose. More and more it is becoming a day of real rest and recre ation, and, happily enough, it is already our chief out-of-doors day. Every harm less leg-stretching and muscle-building sport should be encouraged as they will serve to teach I11an how to make a sane and useful use of his day of rest. ] f the bicycle had nothing else to its credit, it should be lauded for its great share in this spiritual reform. Baseball, too, has done wonders in persuading healthy minds to rational forms of worship. There are those who believe that any thing tending to exercise the mind or body on the Sabbath, outside of a church, is sinful. The time is surely not far, however, ( iel common sense on this subject will ie too connmon to be sensational. T'he few who would still make the day one of unrelieved gloom and foreboding of the supposedly awful hereafter and sodden indigestion are rapidly dwindling. In a few years it will be considered the proper thing, even by devout Christians, to enjoy one's self on Sunday and they will not then contend that to do so will consign one to eternal companionship with Mary MacLane's hero.
