Only that party whicht proclaims its principles, avows its purposes and challenges criticism is worthy of the public confidence. The republican party is of the latter kind. Its character is an opetn book. Its principles are of denont trated wisdom. Its work is seetn in tihe prosperity and freedom of lahbor from Oclean to oceni. Its planls are knlownll to contemplate justice to all, equal rights to all, good Iill to every worthy cautise.

Tutt Ta.tder Mountain country grows less attriTtive with exlploltation.

For wage ring there Is absoluttely no chance, rho is a rich state, but Thunder Mottun a adds nothing to its wealth. THiesR seems to have been just a little excess of courtesy ietween the distin guished sluggers, Fitz and Jim, after the big fistic contest in San Francisco last night. Mr. Fitzailmmnons was profuse in his admiration of the man who had jarred his slats so effectually, while Mr. Jeffries coubl scarcely find words to express his high appreciation of the gentleman who had knocked the wind out of him. The polite and gentlemanly attitude of the gifted plug-uglics toward each other was just a little too suggestive of Alphonse and Gaston. Perhaps this has given rise to the painful thought in a few minds that the fight was a "bloomin' fake," to employ the vernacular of the ringside. Notwitlh sta:llding this impression in some qularters, the fight is likely to have bccn honest eniogh. Anyhow the man who lost did not carry the money down with him, as is somtimes the case in alleged sporting events. To fall h:ak on the vernacular a:ain, the Ipublie "had a run for its moiney." 'i he loosened ribs of Mr. Fitz aol the battered ounIIteniance of the champion would indicate that the bruisers 'erre not in the ring for fun.

I thie next national election there will he no doubt of the disposition of the peiopile to accept Bryan's judgment of the stuffed prophet and the stutlel prophet's judgment of Blryan. They both represent a dead past which has omitted to bury its dead. Of the two, firyan is the worthier moan, for his honesty has never been in question. Only his theories are at fault. They have been smashed to m pulp by the logic of events. All the facts and figures and the country's won derful prosperity are against him. Tilis is a year when the young repub licans of Montana should rally to the fight. Only the republican party has a record of which young men may be proud. it is a record made by old men for the encouragement and emulation of young men. All the glorious work of this gov ernment in war and peace has been per formed by the republican party. It is a maker of history, a creator of prosperity, a chlllampion of progress.

The Inter Mountain has heretofore hal something to say of the possibilities of the manufacture of wool in Montana. With this state producing annually be tween 3o,ooo,ooo and 35,ooo,ooo pounds of wool, with every prospect that this enormous aggregate will be further rn creased, the question of a large part ofl its raw material being turned Into the manufacturcd product within the bound aries of the state where it is produced is one that should be of commanding in terest to all our people. It is likely to occur to the average observer that the lesson which the South has learned after many years in the cotton industry is one that Montana should take advantage of in the matter of wool. For a generation or more the South produced a large part of the world's cotton, and yet permitted the New England states to do practically all the manufacturing of the product that was done in this country. This was a good thillg for the railroads. that transported the raw material to the East and then carried back to the South a part of the fillished product. This cost the South hundreds of millions of dollars bIfore it realized the fact that the raw cotton nii;;ht as well lie manufactured where it is produced. Today the South is mllanlf:lrtttrlling its cotton and saving these i' illions. IThe result is that the cottoni states hayve bo)n transforlmedl into a hive of inii-try. 'l'Thousands of men anll ,,m01(0r arc iemploiyeil in the factories whre scores weire employed onlly ill the fictlds, :and thlose colored laborers. Since lhe experilment of the woolen mills at Big Timber there is no longer any doItht that Montana wool can be lmanfalctlurellr d hre at loiiiie. It has been thought that tile problem of lalbor might lie o:ne that wouibl operate against the Imnulttlfactulre of wool in this state. Water is another important item to be consid crcd ill the preparation of wool for the looms: this, ton, is found to be one that officers no obstacle to the manufacture of wool in this state. We learn that at the Big Timber mills no difficulty has been experienced ill getting an abundance o£. skilled labor at the union scale of wages. which obtains in the East. Weavers are pail 20 cents per pair of blankets, which is but 4 cents above the Eastern union scale. Inasmuch as the blanlkets made ill Montana are heavier that Eastern made blankets, the average cost per pound for a pair of blankets is less here than ill the East. The exact ditTerence in favor of Montana is 4 cents per pair. The total cost to turn raw wool iint blankets at the Big Timber mills has been found to bIe 20 cents per scoured poulld. F. 0. Clark, one of the proprietors of the.e tuills, inl a paper read before the Pacific Northwest Woolgrowers' associa tion at Great Falls, supplies this informa-.. tion : We find that we have many advantages over the Eastern manufacturers, being in close touch with the producers and con sumers of wool. First, Iby being on the ground when the wool clips are offered we are able to buy choice clips, those with the longest staple and the least per cent of shrinkage. If by careful testing and buying we can make an average of 6 cents per pound over the average price the Eastern mills have to pay, the profit alone on this saving will be to us, with the pres ent capacity of our mill, 45 cents per each six-pound blanket, which makes a saving of 13.1 cents per pound on the finished product of the mill. The Big Timber mills are no longer an experiment: the mate rials are right at hand and cheaper t n they can possibly he secured by the t ern manufacturers. The product of Our mills is superior to those of Eastern man ufacturers, from the fact that it is as cheap for our mill to use all wool as it is for us to ship in shoddy or cotton. We believe that the advantages of freight saved on wool from Montana to New England mills, and on the finished product from New England to the 'West are much more than enough to make up the extra cost of manufacture here. In fact, the saving is 36 cents per blanket of six pound weight, or a saving of 8 per cent in favor of a Montana I,lanket, and 8 per cant on the gross sales of a factory which can turn its capital three times a year would he very a satisfactory dividend to stockholders. Fromn this it would seemnt that the man tlfacture of wool in this state offers an attractive firtl for capitdl. Mr. Clark summedlll up the situation very tersely when he said: "The time is now ripe for the builing of woolen mills in Mon tana. No country on earth will he able to compete with the Northwest when we begin to manufacture into goods these \ils hire at home. From the shearing ipes into the factory door with tino trans r,ortation charges, no coinmnissions, cheap fuel and albundant water power, and the c.!iccst wools in the state all mean that we have got the everlasting cinch, and let us take holl of it ail keep it." In the ittecr Mlounttain of Friday we piuhlished solle fitures from a census bhul letin, showing that in the two states of Massachusetts anld Pennsylvania close to $S70,ioou,o0 is investedl in woolen mills engaged in the manuufacture of a raw material which comes chiefly from the \'est and Northwest. Montana should have her share of these mills. Tui: esteemed and valued Standard lacks much apparently of a clear under standing of the technique of the prize ring. In its front-page illustration this morning it gives four men in the ring struggling with the principals while the fight is in progress, and two more ritn ning to the rescue. This would jar the Marquis of Qucensbury. The impression is that nothing like this is allowed or thought of under the rules of the ring. I.ouo KI'rcuTetca is the hero of the hour in London. Hie is Europe's greatest living genqral, His last triumph was his great est, for not only did he vanquish his op ponents, but at the same time he made them his staunch friends, PEOPLE WE MEET. 6 ( T'CIE In my life I felt veritably cheap," said George Gordon, who looks after the destinies of a North rnt 1'acifi passenger train cast from I'utte, as he sat in the lobby of the Fin rkn last night and waited for the news of the fight," and when I tell you what it was, and how It happened, you will iunlerstand why it .Ws one on me.

"I carme out and I rconfess I rubbed nmy eyes. 'During these few mrorninlg hours, the Chinook had got in its deadly work. There was not enough snow to make a decent snrowhall with a mile. The warm wind had just whipped it out of that cut and the train stood high and dry on the track. That chinook cost rle considerably mlore than a week's salary for cigars. OUR FREE PARLIAMENT. Letters From the People on Topics of General Interest. Regarding Meaderville. To the Editor of the Inter Mountain: Not long ago it was stated in an article that appeared in your valuable paper that a county official had remarked that Dublin Gulch was not a marker to Meaderville for giving trouble to the officers of the law. In Friday evening's paper some one who signs himself "Citizen" has taken issue with the county official in nis statement. The undersigned only desires to say that when the oflicial said that Meaderville leads in giving the justices of the peace work to do in adjusting petty troubles and in furnishing misdemeanor cases for them, he remained entirely within the truth. There is no desire to slur Meaderville, but "Citizen" is referred to the records of the justice courts for accurate information concerning this matter. The records bear out the official's statemenit. No doubt the oflicial is entirely willing to "refer" to Meaderville as a town of 4,000 inhabitants, and to admit that its people, generally speaking, are entirely "able to run their own affairs without an expensive police force." Doubtless he will also admit willingly enough that many of the men are "quartz miners" and that they "dare death in his most horrible shape," though that is perhaps putting it a little strong when it is remembered that skinning alive, boiling in oil, burning at the stake and a few other forms of death commend themselves some what from the standpoint of horrible. The county official did not refer to the respectable and law-abiding people of Meaderville, when he spoke of the misde meanors that are committed there. Gener ally speaking, he will probably admit that the people are at peace with one another, and even that the "better side of human nature comes more to the surface" there than anywhere else. Hiis remark was not concerned with those matters. . Neither did the official pass any com ilent on Mrs. Ilolter, the lady involved in the news story in which his statement about the troubles which arise at Meader ville and give the place more prominence in the justice courts than D)ublin Gulch was reported. She may he all that "Citizen'" paints her, and the undersigned has no desire to discuss that point, thinking it letter to leave the lady out of the discus sion, her character having nothing to do with the official's comment. "Citizen" is requested to look up the comparative statistics inl the police courts :tid learn for himself how Meaderville and ether localities in the county compare in court records. lie will discover that the oflicial's remarks which gave him offense is Iornte out by the tarncts.

State Livestock. [s:rcl.tL 1TO INTSar MO'fr.1uv.] Helena, July a6.-By the tables prepared for the use of the state board of equaliza tion it is shown that the livestock indus try is constantly growing and that the state is in the first rank in the production of cattle, sheep and horses. Because of the heavy buying of horses for use in the armies of this and other nations, there have been some statements to the effect that the ranges were almost bare of these animals. The report of assessors show that the supply cannot well be exhausted. Montana is not prominent in the pro duction of hogs, the stock men preferring to devote themselves to the breeding of cattle, sheep and horses. George D. Thomas Dead. [ses. I' .
