Ilclena, Mlonit., September 3, 1)o2. Republican Club Meeting. (George W\. Irvin at the club meeting last night sotunldd the keynote of the re publican campaign. lie pronounced for independent actin on the part of every republican and for the protection of prop erty, whether owned by individuals or corporations. lie called attention to the fact that the republican party has always maintained the integrity of courts and the inviolability of private and corporate rights. No corporation, he declared, had ever dominated or ever would dominate the republican party, and he knew of none that have any de~ire or intention of doing so. All statements to the contrary were the falsehoods of an enemy without con science or patriotism. For one, he would ever oppose dictation from individuals or aggregations of individuals. In this, the coming campaign, he stood for the rule of the majority honestly expressed, satisfied that such majority would do right, foster ing every legitimate interest and protecting the legal rights alike of the poorest and the richest. The corporations of Mon tana that are conducted on the square ask nothing of the republican party but justice, and they will get nothing but justice. They understand that and are content. If their demands were unjust, Mr. Irvin would likely be among the first to oppose them; if they asked to dictate party poli tics, he would decline to assent to the re quest. The republican party, Mr. Irvin declared, guarantees to all men and all interests fair treatment. It is a party that always has the courage to do right, and any man who says it will ever weakcen or become an instrument to register aly will but that of its own majority tells a lie that cannot deceive the intelligent citizens of Montana. Naturally enough, Mr. Irvin's talk met with a hearty response from his auditors, They all realized that the campaign of falsehood and vituperation waged last year against the republican party cannot be suc cessfully repeated. They realized that the republican ticket of 00oo was free from corporate influence, and that the corpora tions which were made the objects of foul aspersion were then, as now, free from any desire to control political affairs. In that campaign it was plain to every man, rich or poor, that his rights and his prop erty would be safe under republican pro. tection, but the majority of the people were deceived as to the facts, and tile re suit was a republican defeat. This year another campaign is on, and one wing of the democratic party has begun to repeat the tactics of t9oo. The same baselcss stories, the same brazen lies, the same exploded roorhacks, the same abusive and mendacious calumnies, the same demagogue appeals to working men and the same pictorial misreprcscnta tion have already started in a flood all over the state. True it is that every prediction and every declaration made two years ago against the repullican party and the prop erty and material interests of the st;ate have been proved false by events, to the intense disgust of fully one-half of the men who then voted the fusion ticket; but that has not discouraged the calumniators. 'The it is, also, that one-half the demo cratic party, aghast at the depravity of former allies, have come out openly under the leadership of Senator Clark and de nounced the men and the plot that have for their avowed object the prostitution of the courts of Montana iand the corrup tion of its legislature, but still the canm paign of boodle and falsehood goes on, still is it openly proposed to buy up every demoicrat that is for sale, until the ma chinery of the democratic party shall bc comle at: aid to the perpetration of crime. Institutions that have distributed $40, Oo.)0,0 among the people of Montana since the last campaign are being reviledi and abused; calpitalists whose money has giVenl emiployment to i5,ono nien for the past two years are being hehl up as public uinemtiis Iy a company whose pay-roll is Inot onii tentllh as large, and which is itself a "hrrilile" corporation, with a capitaliza tion of $8,n,,,,on, in. The wretchedl al su.lrdity of such camIpaigin meithods tmust be appatillent to every man having suffi cient education to know the name of the town hlie lives in, but it is plain that for the next two monloths the people of Miuntanla are to be deluged with a Iloodl of false and defainatory campaign stuff turnedl loose in the evident belief that mollst men are fools, and for the purlpose of concealing Ihle real object of the con spiracy, which ii to control tile courts and poison and pollute tile very fountainhead of justice ill the peerless stlate of Mon talinla. As .before state, eci.lince of this coit spirac-y is lnot lacking. It is openly pro clained bly Senator Clark and his news paper and is nit denied. The only an swer touchlsafed to the charge is the silly story that Slenator Clark has gone Into a coalition with his political enemies and with the republican party. A more lmon strus falsehood was niever invented. There is no combina;tion of circunt.stanccs which coull induce the republicans to co operate with Senator Clark, and it is but fair to say that on his part such an ar rangemnent would be equally against his own wisbh,:'s and interests. There are some subjects, however, upon which all Anmeri cant citizens worthy of the name may en tertain the saunc views, viz.: the honor of the flag. the pirotection of the con slitution anid the integrity of the courts. There is no politics in patriotism and justice. Citizens in all parties may, within their own party lines, contend for both. They are both safe under republican rule, they are inl grave peril in the democratic ca:inl just now. It was to these facts and others that Mr. Irvin and other rellublicatns addressed their fellow citizens last night. They pro posed for the good of the people, for the protection of property rights, and for the nlaintenance of industrial activity in this and other connunitics of the state, that the voters study the situation for them selves, honestly and squartly, without passion or prejudice, and in the light of reason and common sense and public spirit, andi that they afterwards vote ill conformity with their conclusions. WAGES AND LABOR. In the presence of authentic figures, the windy diatribes of political demagogues fall to the groiund. The ment of mouth may shout about protection and imperial ism and call the president names. They may tell contented and independent work ingmen that they are slaves because they work instead of steal or beg for a living. They may inveigh about republican legis lation in the past and misrepresent its purposes. Ihit they cannot upset well authenticated figures of iroluction and enmploytnent. They cannot deny that labor is in demand at wages that are conlstantly improving. 'They cannot induce muent to vote the democratic ticket oui local issues when the national welfare dcmands sup port for the republican party in order to mnaintain national prosperity. An article in Gunton's Magazine for the current month deals with the subjcct of the employment and wages of labor in the United States, showing among other things the following instances of the wis dom of republican policies: A number of notable wage increases have taken place in the industrial world recently, the more important being: An increase of I cent per hour to mo. tormnen and coiductors, nearly 5,000 in number, on the Union Traction trolley lines inl Philadelphia. This is practically a to per cent raise. An increase of to per cent to cotton mull operatives in southern New Eingland, af. fecting more than 50,000. An increase of "5 per cent and an ciglh hour day for 2,000 structural iron and bridge workers in and aboutt P'ittsburg. An increase of from 5 t) to per cent to the i,oo0 employcs of the Barbour Flax Spitnning company of Paterson, N. J. An increase of to per cent to the 4,000 employes of the John A. Roebling's Sons company of Trenlton, N. J. Ant increase, amlounting to $125,ooo a year to about 2,000 signaliten, dispatchera, telegraphers and towermen on the New York Central & IHudson River railroad. An increase of to per cent to some 15,000 employes of the United States Steel corporation in mills and furnaces in and about Pittsburg. This was granted with. out prclitminary notice, the amount being inclosed in the pay envelopes of June 26. A substantial increase in varying amounts to about 50,000 iron workers in the rolling mills throughout the country. This increase takes place under the slid ing scale arranged with the iron workers' uuion, and follows thie advance in the price of bar iron. Right in this connection, it is a gratify ing circumstance that the tin-plate wage scale for the coming year has been ad justed satisfactorily by mutual conference, the result of which is described by Presi dent Shaffer of the Amalgamated Iron & Steel workers, as follows: "The wage scale agreed on last April stands and will rule until April, 19o3. We settled nearly all the 'footnotes,' as the general condi tions are called. The rest have been re ferred to the local lodges. Our confer ences have been friendly and satisfactory, and there has been no friction. The 'footnotes,' most of which have been set tled, do not affect the general situation. There is not, will not be and cannot be any trouble until the wage scale expires." VIRTUES OF WILLIAM M'KINLEY. ;Governor Toole today issued a proc lamation suggesting that on Sunday next the people assemble in their various places of worship and hold memorial services in. honor of William McKinley, late presi dent of the United States. In this connection the Inter Mountain prints below an article on the subject of the life and death of William McKinley, from the columns of the Cincinnati En quirer of the 6th instant, the anniversary of the day upon which the lamented chief executive was shot. It is an article re ,lectC with beautiful thought and contain ing a touching tribute to the public and private virtues of one of the nation's greatest sons. lublished in a newspaper whlse political beliefs are opposed to those entertained by the martyred presi dent, it is all the more worthy of thought ful perusal. It is as follows: One year in the resistless flight of time has not been long enough to accustom the good people of the United States to the horror that came upon them on the 6tht of September, 19ot. Twelve tmonths, full of great events and ponderous with mighty prophecics as to the future, have not made dull th popular apprehension of a great loss. Wars have taken place, monarchies have tottered and republics have fallen, civilizations have been hIalf way revolutionized, thousands upon thou sands of soldiers and patriots have died in their blood and in the dust; victorious generals have returned to their homes to ie decorated; the king of a mighty people has trembled in the doorway of death, and survived to be crowned in a royal line that may be traced back almost to un historic ages; disasters of nature have made the heavens red, upheaved the sea and made beautiful gardens the sepulchres of countless blackened victims; science has made advances that have seemed al most apace with the guumgng and mysteri ous hand of God; new and great methods have taken possession of practical af fairs, and the old ones have passed swift ly to oblivion; the earth has opened her ample bosom to the mortality of armies of men and women who have bowed to the common lot of all; storms and floods have made their annual and appalling havoc; children have been brought forth in lhnost myriads to take rtp the work and the joys and sorrows of those they have laid away in narrow houses, them selves to leave a progeny to wrestle with the wreck and rack of ages to come. The evolutions and convolutions of a single year, when subjected to an attempt at aggregation and analysis, leave a com plexity of recollection in which "circum stances of great pith and moment" may easily be forgotten. Nothing, and not all, though, can dis place or dim the memory of William Mc Kinley, who was stricken down one year ago today. Sorrow still pervades, but there is mnuch sweetness in the remem brance of a chief executive who was typical in his Americanisnm, who was a moral model, whose mistakes and sins were so few that they passed from sight under the ieautiful burden of his better life, who was of the people and loved to dwell in their affectionate association, and who, in much, very much more than the engaging outward amenities which characterized hitl, was the best ideal of a gentlemiran. Nothing that has taken place in the busy, eventfiul year has subtracted from the reasons for preserving his memory as a heritage. lie was more than Will iam McKiinley. 1ie was the chief ex cutive of thire greatest people on earth, with a title better and more profound than rne grailled throughIi long heredity the title issued bIy thIe people themnselves. lie had a just pride of position, and de sired to bring the presidency as close to thie people as was consistent with neces sary reserve anl thie dlignity of command. The ldeath of any president by violence would he a shock that would reach the hearts of thie lhurrtlest or thie mtost in different citizens, Ibut Willinam McKinley must ie looked urorln as among the excep tional presidents. lie had a geniality and Amiericanism about hint that ex tracnted miuch of thie bIitterness of politi cal contention, His personality, as well as his great offaricial position, bIrought flowers to his tonmb from all classes andl conditions of men and women, and fromn those of all shades of political belief. And may his grave today, and on ft ture anniversaries, ie ranced with the best that we in our Ihelplessness can offer to one swho has passedl to scenes its the light of which our trilbutes may seenm puny and iootless. CITY'S MORAL CRUSADE. If there is any gambling in this county contrary to the law, it ought to be sup pressed. If the pool selling at thie race track is against the law, the officcrs ought to stop it. In view of the decision of Judge HIarney, however, who issued a re straining order protecting the race track people until the case could be heard on its merits, it would be interesting to learn whether or not the city law department in tends to overrule the order of the district coturt. There is wide-open gambling going On in Butte and the city officials are well aware of the fact, though tlhey have1 ot yet stopped it, Neither has the county at torney, Municipal zeal for the protection of public morals all seems to be expended two miles out of town, where the baneful effects of gambling are minimized. In the city, where 6o,oo000o people are liable to moral contamination, the law is ignored. What a city government I What a moral crusade! What an exhibition of horse play to the galleries I REPUBLICAN CLUB HOLDS A MEETING (Continued from Page One.) other prominent republicans also respond ed to the demands for a speech, and all re ceived the plaudits of the audience. A. F. Bray called the attention of the meeting to the fact that under republican administration the nation was always pros perous and that no one outside of the asylums for the feeble-minded were anx ious for a return of Clevelandism and de mocracy. In eloquent language he paid a splendid tribute to the present chief ex ecutive. "Every American citizen worthy of the name should have the courage and moral stamina to vote as his conscience dictates," said Mr. Bray. "The best right of the citizen of this great republic is his right to cast a free ballot, undictated bal lot, and the fact that this right is recog nized and honestly administered by a great majority of the voters is cause for hope in the future of the nation." Mr. Bray was proud to be associated with such a splendid body of representa tive citizens who would make the victory of that party certain and thus benefit the state. Because of the absence of two members of the committee on by-laws, it was given until the next meeting to report. Rickards' Remarks. Ex-Gov. J. E. Rickards informed the members of the club that it was not his intention to speak more than a tew words, but after the campaign had been fairly launched he would have omething to say provided the central committee would grant him that privilege. Two years ago, said he, there was considerable dissension in the ranks of the republicans and the dem ocrats made fun of the dissentors, but since then things had changed for the bet ter, the republicans being united and the democrats divided. lie said the republicans were not alarimed over the cry to the effect that they, the republicans, were to be con trolled by corporate influence, that the party was more perfectly so!idified at present than it had been for years and that it knew neither corporate influence nor dictatiorn from any one smian. Mr. Rickards expressed the belief that wise counsel in the ranks of the party would prevail and that, recognizing the importance of leadership, all members would rally under the banner. Citizens of Montana had experienced the pangs of democratic rule in the state and the dele gates to the convention in Great Falls would nominate men who would perform their duty. Executive Committeemen Elected. Chairman Kirk ruled that instead of appointing the five members of the execu tive committee, they should be elected by th club. A vote was taken and the fol lowing were elected: C. B. HIoskins, D. J. Charles, Lee Mantle, Charles Schatzlein and W. R. Young. The chairman called attention to the fact that only 15 out of the 55 precincts of the county have precinct captains, and a committce consisting of J. V. Long, M. D. Cavanaugh and J. II. Vogle was appointed to make a selection to be presented to the county central committee for indorsement. In the absence of County Vice Presi dent Byron If. Cook it was impossible to appoint the five delegates-at-large to the convention, and many methods were sug gested in his absence. It was finally con cluded to communicate with Mr. Cook. who is at present in California, and ask him to name the delegates. Named Upon the Committee. Following were the recommendations made by the committee for vacancies on the county central committee: First district, Charles O'l)onnell; 2d, T. W. Buzzo; 3d, Charles Actin.; 4th, Edward Trumby; 5th, Joseph Calloway; 6th, Joseph Vincent; 7th, A..Chelleu; 8th, F. A.

The new stage that is being constructed in the Grand Opera house will be in all respects the most modern of any theater in thie West. It will be considerably larger than the old stage and have many new and up-to-date Innovations. It will be per fectly capable of staging any production on the road. The front of the stage is being re modeled in the shape of a double curve, while the orchestra pit has been lowered for the sake of promoting the now almost perfect acoustic qualities of the theater.

The dressing rooms also will be entirely new and exceedingly comfortable and commodious. The heating arrangements of the thea ter also are being completely overhauled and being put in shape for the winter.
