MR. IVES HAS THE FLOOR. If there is in Montana any political party or faction, or company or indi. vidual that is seeking to elect any par ticular candidl:te for the supreme court for the purpose of having the cight-hour law declared unconsittitttional, the quali fled voters of Montana would like to be apprised of tihe names and particulars. PIresident Ives of the labor conventiont at Iillings last Tuesday charged that such a plan was in contempllation, and the tInter Mountain lhas courteously asked hiln for all the facts a:nd the evidence. The pIo plc have a right to knouw the natmes of the party or the men who are engaged in such a scheme, and Mr. Ives will doubhtless be only too glad to satisfy their curiosity. There is but one faction in this state known to be in favor of changinlg the su prenie court in order the better to con trol its action. If that is the faction Mr. Ives alluded to, why did hIe not give its name and objects? Aside froit the fact that one judge is not generally re garded as a majority of three, there is still enough interest attlachinlg to Mr. Ives' accusationl to justify a deiimandt for fuller information luponl so importanlt a suljct. Let the peole have the truth, the whole truth ailt nothitng but the truth. Mr. Ives has thle floor and the people of Mlontana are waiting and listening. LAST NIGHT'S FIRE. It is with sincere regret that the Inter Mountain annlounlces the delstructiion. of the M. 0. 1'. smelter last night. It oc curred through the burning out of a dynamo, and w.ts soon beyond humlan control. The company employes, aided by those of the Parrot and IButte & Ilos ton mines, Iperformed valiant work and succeeded in saving all adjoining struc tures, but the concentrat or was dlnoonel. The site, with all that is left of the nta chinery, preseints a mielanicholy spectacle, as portrayed by Inter Mountain artists to day. The loss is estimated at from $1o0, ooo to $151,o00, partly inlsured, but that is not the worst feature of the disaster. The fact that 600 good mien will be thrown out of employment, and that probably several moinths will elapse before the concentrator can be rebuilt-th.at is the nimost serious aspect of the situation. It is hoped that the smelter will be able to run as usual, thus giving work to a part of the mining force, but that will depend on the character of the ore available and the percentage of fluxes it contains. To the M. O. P. company and to the men thrown idle, the Inter Mountain offers its sympathy, and at the same time ex presses the general satisfaction that the smelter was not destroyed. INSULTING AMERICAN LABOR. "Free adimiission into this country for trust made goods," is to be the demo cratic battle cry. T'he suggestion sought to be conveyed is that by this means that the trusts will be controlled. Every 'man who is receiving daily, weekly or mn.nt!'ly wages from our big manufacturing concerns has a vital inter est in this attempt to "control" the trusts. The man who killed the goose that laid the golden eggs "conrolled" the valuable bird in just this way. lie stopped its earn ing capacity although this was not what he set out to do. Free admission for trust made goods can have but one effect upon wages in the Uniited States and no intelli gent workingman need be told that the effect- will be downward. The manufac turing combinations employ a vast army of laboring men and if the goods manufac tured by this labor is to have foreign com petition in our own markets the effect will be disastrous for those concerns and labor will bear its share of the disaster. The free traders and foreign agents who think they are disguising their heresy so that it will not be recognizable under this new shape are insulting the intelligence of Anmerican workingmen. COL. CODY'S IRRIGATION PROJECT. The people of Montana have great re spect for the creative genius of the IIon. Buffalo Bill and corresponding admira tion for his enterprise and that of his business associate, Mr. Nate Salisbury. Therefore we look with appreciation and hopefulness upon his big Irrigation scheme in the Big Horn region east of Yellow stone park, Col. Cody has enlisted the in terest of the Mormons in his project and leaving out the religious feature of it, the enterprise is one that will appeal to a great many. If it goes through, as it Is likely to do, it will doubtless help the Mormons In their colonizing schemes, but It will also help the agricultural and live stock Interests as well. It Is armatter of common knowledge that the flourishing colonies of Byron and Cowley, in the Big Horn basin, below the location of the Cody project, are typical of what the Mor mons accomplish in settling and develop ing a new country, and It is known that Apostle Woodruff is eager that his col leagues in the church leadership take an active interest in the undertaking of Col onel Cody. The magnitude of the undertaking will be understood when it is known that an area of fertile, irrigable land .30 miles long by to miles wide at its greatest width will i.e reclaimed and brought to the highest stage of agricultural produc tilon by diverging the waters of the Sho shone river in a system of canals over the land. During the month (,f August eaCI year the river flows at the rate of not less than 9(,oo cubic feet per second. This is more than: the enltire flow of all of the streams running into UItahI and Salt lake vwillys. About 6o,iooi acres of land are ulnder irrigation in Salt lake valley. The upper canal of the prloposed Codly andl Salislbury systel will cover 9o,oo acres. A large ailitional area is irrigllc undehr a canal on the other side of the river. The pro nnmoters have secureId a first water right to thile flow of the Shoshone river suffi cient to irrigate I a,,ouo aeres in the Ilig hlorn basin, and out of this area 98,0,(, acres have Ien segregated hunder the ('arey act. The Biurlington railroad last year completed an extllension of its branch line through this inviting tract to the now flurishing town of odily. It is a pity that Colonel (Cody 11has1 to 'llt.cnd largely oil freign capital to carry thIrouh this useful project. If Uncle Sant vxpl'nde.I some of his irl i,ation mlloney In that locality thousands (of pIelsons would lie benifited. CASCADE AND THE CONGRESS. Ferguls colunty has had enoulgh enter pIri' to Inaki a showing at the Ilutte twining congress, but ('ascade county will not lie heard frlm. -Great Falls Tlribune. This is to be regretted. ('ascade could furnish an interesting and valulable dis Ilay, and it might ibe well worth that ciiunty's while to do it. (reat Falls has a great waterfall, but she ought not to dhslpise tile benefits that mtight flow to, her throIugh a Inining congress to lie made uip of representative imeni from( all parts of the United States. Ca';cade tlight at least send soniC of its valluable iron ore to the miiining con Ipress. The enterprising James J. llill has been Itlged to erect i vast steel works at (;reat Falls, aind, as we understand tile situation, has almost given his promise to do so. Still, Mr. 11ill may find his rail road, shipbuilding and agricultural enter prises quite entiough to occupy his titme, and Imaly, therefore, give tip the Great Falls steel works. In view of this calamli tous possibility it might lie well to have other lines out, and there is no telling what a line of samplles of iron ore at tile mining congress mighit dot. We know that (asa:lde county is rich in Icssentler ores, mnll:lgatese, coal, silica, lie a11nd fire clay, not to cntliiun the precious metals, and a silmple of every one of thelit ought to be at the Ilillinlg congress. WOOL AND POLITICS. D)uring three years of the Wilson-Gor man1 demtocratic free wool legislation there were imported into the United States near ly 8ioio,ooi,,oolo hpounds of foreign wool. This made anil accumutlatiion of stocks in this country anid we have not yet got en tirely rid of them. Notwithstanding this handicap of foreign raw maltrial the l)ingley tariff has Ibeen the mlieans of givinlg our wool grow ers the largest markets and the best prices they have ever 1had for their product. The effect of the working of this republican policy with respect to wool was clearly demnonstrated in Montana this year when our wool growers practically had the mar ket in their ownl hands and received the highest prices ever paid for raw wool in this part of the country---a price that was about double that received unller the Wil son-Gormlan regille. That wals a period when tile foreign wool imel had lipossessionl of Anmerican nlarkets. All this has been anl oblject lessonl that Monltana wool growers, together with the wool growers of the Untited States, will not soon forget. They will vote tile re iabllican ticket this fall, illirticluraly in Mountana, altliost to a I1ant. Enlgilneering is ellncounterinlg difficulties ill the Ibuililing of a railroad across one cornier of Salt l.ake, an eiterprise in which thie Southern Pacific is at piresenlt elngaged. The Ogden Standard reports that thile first pile driven weInt out of sight andti a second pile on topl of thile first also disalppeared uinder thie blows of the steam pile driver. The fornation at this pIoint is madle up of the mud washed in biy Bear river and is of considerable depth, requiring extra piling in order to secure a firnl foundation for tile roadbed to lie Ibuilt therconi. The water is shallow, but the sedilnment is deep. It is the theory that wlhenl deep water is reached the bottomt of the lake will present no such difficulties as there is a strong current at those poinlts which has washed thle bed of the lake free from mnud and left it in much the same condition found when Saltair was built, a hard pan or cement offering excellent support for the timbers. The New York Mail and Express is disposed to grow sarcastic over the able views of Jim Hill regarding the possibili ties of developing trade with the Orient. As to the one-route theory of Mr. Hill, our contemporary says: "He sees traffic pouring in a steady stream across the northern tier of states west of the Mis sissippi and the lakes and over the broad Pacific, and pouring into the lap of the East the treasures of our soil in return for barbaric pearl and gold or their equiva lent. He would even turn the course of interior traffic up the Mississippi valley and carry cotton and Texas wheat by the northern route." The southern route acrou the continent as a feeder for Oriental trade doubtless has its advantages, but really Mr. 11111 can hardly he blamed for scelng greater advantages in the northern route. Distressing information conies from London to the effect that a large number of American crooks are stranded in England. The light-fingered and usually long-headed gentlemen journeyed to that country to "assist" at the coronation )f King Edward, and expected to do qu a stroke at thieving. The coronation cet monies were a bitter disappointment to them from a financial standpoint. There was little doing in the way of lifting pocketbooks and other valuables, and when the visitors departed, these American crooks found their own pocketbooks empty. Th'le cable brings the news that London is actually "swarming" with these stranded Americans, who include pickpockets, sneak thieves and confidence men of every stripe. 'l'he m.st disquieting note in the whole sad altair is that the authorities are seri nusly contemnplating the business of rais inlg money to jIay the expenses of our stranded crooks back to America. Tl'he detocratic state committee will ieet in solemn conclave at Ilelena next Monday to ascertain which faction of the party is in control and to throw the minor ity out of the back door. It will be a contest which the republicans can view with erluanimity, as it presages such a plit in the free trade ranks that all ilope 't harmony in the future will go glhuimer mg.. Th'ite past histor y of the Montana de Incracy has been bad enough, the Lord Inows, but the future promises to be so imuch worse that it is safe in advance to announce that the party has reached the rnd of its power. lHereafter it will exist only as a bad smell. The American people can't stand pros perity. They have had so much of it since i896 that they are aching for a dose of ad versity just to see how it feels to be hard up.-Hleppner (Ore.) Gazette. The valued Gazette is probably the vie Limn of misinformation. Prosperity suit.; the American people, the American work ing man along with others and "the ballots that comeic down as still as snowflakes fall upon the sod," will do the business for those who have heretofore been providing the "dose of adversity." The socialists are entitled to credit on one account. They do not adopt a plat form of principles one day and fuse the next with other political parties whose principles are directly contrary to their own. Some parties have a habit of doing that very thing, thereby confessing that principles are secondary to spoils and ioodle. Governor 'Toole said in effect: Fusion mlleans the absolute abatldonment of honiest conviction, being a lewd political embrace at once indecent and corrupt. The prospects are that the delegates to the mining congress will generally take advantage of the opportunity which the Butte, Anaconda & Pacific railroad has olTered to them to visit the big smelter at Anaconda. Thursday next, therefore, will not be the least interesting antd important day of the session of the congress. EDITORIAL STEEL-POINTERS. As he was boarding the steamer to start for Europe Schwab said: "I don't know where I asn going. I haven't had time to lmap out mly course ahead. l'in not sick. I'm not going to resign. l'in not goiing away on business." Perhaps le's imerely taking a trip across because lie hasn't anything else to do, and hate, to just sit around drawing his salary. Somle people are so queer about these things--Chicago Record-IHerald. The example of the Illinois newspaper which has begun the issue of the bible as a serial (a process that will require about 50 years) recalls the Texas editor who camle across the 'lenl C'omnnandments somewhere and was so struck with their excellence that he clipped the passage and ran It under the hIead of "Geims of Current Thought."-Springtield (Mass.) Repuh lican. Carrie Chapmnlaln-Catt says nine-tenths of the criminals are men. This is mild. SI, i might have said that nine-tenths oi thie menll are crianiials.-Oitaha News. A workman fell 1oo feet iin l'hiladclphia and was not hurt. 'lThat's nothling strange. It takes a long timie to fall soo feet in Plhiladelphia.---Newark Advertiser. If Mr. Morgant gets seasick on his way home, he may feel like throwing up his whole undertaking of tryilg to control the sea.-lBoston herald. 'lThe county fairs are ieginning to open up, and the names of the aeronauts will during the next few weeks figure conspic uously ill the obituary columns.-Chicago Record-llerald. MERE OPINION. The varnish is soon worn from the rail. ing in front oi the bar, but church pews seldom need repairing. When a baby girl is born she at once be gins to yell for clothes and she never gets over the habit. The sound of the brewery wagon rumb ling through the street is sweet music in the devil's ears. When a man has difficulty in finding a chance to propose he can make up his mind that the girl doesn't want him. HEADLESS BODY IS FOUND Two Boys See Hand Protruding and Curiosity Leads to Ghastly Discovery. ([u ASSOCIATED PRESS.] St. Louis, August ag.-A special to the Republic from El Paso, Texas, says: Two boys have found a hand protruding from a sandpile, three miles from here and across the boundary in New Mexico, and an investigation revealed a headless body. The police believe the body to be that of Jay Cullings, a civil engineer who re cently disappeared and supposedly was murdered. An investigation is being made. THE STATE PRE8S. What Montana Editors Find to Say on Political Topics. A campaign of reckless misrepresenta tion and strenuous nothingness has beeen begun by the democratic party.-Missou lian. Perhaps no organization on earth, ex cepting Montana democracy, would ex change the ownership of the supreme court of the state for the political support of one man.-Forsyth Times. Beaverhead county,.it is safe to assert, will be almost solidly opposed to fusion in the state convention. There are not enough populists left down here to fill the places on the legislative and county ticket. --Dillon Examiner. W. 11. Norton of Columbus is in th city today. Rumor has it that "the tall sycamore of the Yellowstone" would not refuse the nomination of state represen tative if handed to him by the republicans of Yellowstone county.-llillings Times. A year ago Faugustheinee claimed to be a republican, as did all his hired iessians whom lie has taken over into the demo cratic party. }Hot old principles a man lmust have when he can change politics as often as his lord and master does, just to hold down a salary.-Forsyth Times. Democrats are trying to make an issue out of the trusts. ' ne republican party has made an issue of the trusts. The democrats claim the republican party is not honest. Democrats admit that there is no way of lndging the future except by the past. Ily that admission they de stroy their case. The party cannot point with pride to any movement it has ever made or attempted to make against trusts. It will not deny that it has had the oppor tunity. It must admit that the only at tempt to restrain trust combinations has bhen made by the republican party.-Mis soulian. The weak-kneed republicans, if there are any such, who may have been misled by the swagger of the democrats and their claims of sweeping the country at the ap proaching fall elections shouldt take new courage amnd fight on. 'The democrats have so far receded from their position of claiming everything that they now admit that they have no show to carry Maine anl that Vermont is extremely doubtful. The best they hope for in other states is to cut down the republican majorities they have been accustomed to give, but even this they acknowledge will be no easy task and one well worth crowing over if ac complishcd.-lililings Gazette. BRITISH COLONIES WANT TO COME OVER TO US (Continued fromi Page One.) sick of the British colonial policy, a policy that has resulted in the almost total de struction of the sugar industry of the isl ands. The fruit trade with the United States is the most profitable undertaking in Jamaica today. Its growth Is continu ous and phenomenal. It is the mainstay of the island. Nobody attempts to deny that without the United Fruit company, an American concern, the Island must long ago htg givetn up the tlruggle. The depression over the coultry is as acute as ft is real. The government de partmental reports teens with references to it. Tmres are becoming harder to col lect. People are daily getting out of work, in consequence of failure of the sugar in dustry within the past few months. Thous ands ulpon thousands have been prosecuted for non-payment of taxes. They are gen erally given a month or two in which to pay up their dues, or in default take a term of imprisonmnent, which does not can cel the debt. Uncle Sam Could Do -It. It is the opinion of a number of intel ligent men that if the expensive system of governmeiit which obtains there were superseded by a system of the kind intro duced in Porto Rico, the island would not be long in recovering itself. The salary of $25,ooo, besides numerous exemptions and privileges, which the governor is paid, is regarded as distinctly extravagant and out of all proportion to the colony's reve nue. The revenue cannot he increased. Import duties are at the highest possible point and the government dare not raise them any higher. It is, therefore, not at all surprising to find the whole island seething with discontent, shouting for re forms-reforms which like the govern ment's standing promise of "better times" --never conie. It was realized that the colony is rap idly nearing the parting of the ways and the future will depend almost entirely upon the future policy of the imiperial au thorities with regard to this and the other islands of the West Indies. What They Are Saying. The following editorial comment by one of the most conservative papers of King ston, gives some further idea of the con ditions at present obtaining in Jamaica: "A curious phenomenon at present inl Jamnaica is the discrepancy between the optimistic writings and lectures of people and the actual circumistanlces of the coun try. "\What is the actual situation? Depres sion on every side, sugar and coffee estates going out of cultivation, the people with out money and with only sufficient to eat, large numbers of persons leaving the col ony for America and elsewhere and every where and among all classes the gloomiest anticipations regarding the future. "It may be said that this has always been the situation, but certainly the pessi mistic note has never been so prominent as at present. We are not commenting on it; we simply state what is a fact. On the one side we have the promise and on the other we have the actual circumstance and the discrepancy between the two is what we are calling attention to." HEROES WHO FELL AT THE BEAR PAW Government Is to Erect Shaft to the Memory of Men Who Whipped Valiant Chief Joseph. [aY ASSOCIATED PRESS,] Helena, Mont., August 39.-After lying in unmarked graves for twenty-five years, the bones of twenty-one soldiers who fell in the last battle with the Nez Perces Indians, near the Bear Paw mountains, are to have reared above them a suitable monument and the spot will become a na. tional park.

An Exceptional Bargain How can any man that shaves him self obtain a better bargain than a guaranteed razor for One Dollar? T he Newbro Drug Co., top N. Main St., at intervals offer exceptional bargains in cutlery. This wee, they offer for sale at One Dollar each razors in all styles and sizes, guaranteed to give satisfac tion or money back. This is the first time that this firm has been able to offer to the public a guaranteed razor at this price. Notwithstanding the fact that they are the largest buyers of cut lery in the state they offer you a razor below cost, so that you will tell your friends about the fine razor you bought of the Newbro Drug Co. for $S.oo. Your friend will want one of the same razors, but he will be too late for the sale, and will have to pay two or three dollars for the same razor; even so, he will not be paying more than the razor is worth. Another feature of the big drug store which is worth making note of, is the fact that they offer to give Twenty Dollars in Gold to every person requiring medicine at night, after the store is closed, providing the night bell is not answered within five minutes. When you press the electric button attached to the night befl an electric clock registers the hour and minute, also the number of times you ring. The night clerk turns a button, and an electric light sign informs you that your wants will be attended to at once.
