The liars wh.o :le standlling on trcet corners and in Iarrooms lproclaiminlg that the Amalgamnated cotpainy intends tI re store e ie to hour day amt retduce. stlage; and do a it of other thinigs which have been plainly alI freluently dlisllprove ti and disavowed, have Lecomle tired of trying to scare ittel!igent mern with such claip trap. So they lhave dutg up a new "argi tnent. Although. they all know that the object of lite present attempt to declauch the state is to briing abllotl a sale at a preposterois figure, they are telling the people that blutte wiill lie a onclle-co lany camp, anld that the sole ,object of the Atmalga:m te:,lt is to mnake it so. If the de. partme of the M1. (. 1'. peop.le \otull mlailke lltte a "olln companlly C;npllll.," It l tnot tlhe thing Ie easily accompli.shed if the Amal.inatll.d .,ouldI but put up the 1110 111:111 m n 10 t talk, "oneo, pany ca:m1 p" in luittc klinows nolhing of the resoulrces of Buitte. anl, i, worse than a fool. There arc ., ti pt:teinted mineiral claims in this district, a:nl none have done monre to iat tract the calitl of invel tors to this reioi.t than the Amalig:iaited t.ipeopl ailnd their associatecs. ThIer' wiulhl lw i lhavee' b leen man nIew companites .ilre:ily sta:rtedl here hadi the Amnalg;:ttuctl been ncll Ir;ageld by the ptcople and guaranteed jilutice in the courts. Instead of a "one cImlay capll" it uild have b'een a "twelntly c',n parny counmp" had the men of the iast felt safe ill investing more money here. The boosmn started and capital \ as eoingh as shown by tlih' great lhuilding ioiit of ,oio, but the eltetions of that yeasr, partly luan aged by the IM. U. P., brought to the front a class of meiiin who gave notice to the world that no capitalists necd apply, that they were not wanted iii Montana, that the Amialu,,tnated was to Ie driven out and their inei s closedl dolwn l.y julitial outage. 'lo sioni tixtcnt thet'c ea;l ilities wel'e averted, but the result of the fusion victory was that capital retlurned to its hitilng places, that the new crimlpaniest wenp nlt organized, that the huldintt bonu colltipscd land that business ever since has lbeen iMorel depressled than ever lbefore in Butte's history. The great enterlprise which the fusion crowd iproposle to drive out of Montana has since hien the main support of the people, dlistribulting among them over $4i,.uus,uo during that time, and .still giving employmyent to 15t.oo meln in tlhe mlines, stuelters and sawmtills of the ciil pany. During these two years, while tile Amal gamated compall y has been develpinlg the state and supplying a market for the labor and for the farm products of the state, it has been the object of malignant libels i without end, yet it has gone on with its industrial plans, with calmhn reliance upon ultimate justice. During those two years what mlau can point to a single act of the company that did not redound to the public welfare? W'hat man can prove a single charge of the many preferred against the company? It has done only good and has kept on its payroll all the men it could legiti mately employ. It has built a $6,ooo,ooo smelter at Anaconda to work its ores and show its faith in the state's resources and the people's good will. It has bought and equipped a great mining and milling plant in Madison county. It has opened Mon tana coal miines, thus keeping at home much money formerly sent to Wyoming. It has, in short, supplied empiloymient and prosperity to fully one-half of the people of Western Montana since the year i9uo, and received in return from many quarters nothing but abuse and misrepresentatioin. That it has not retaliated against its tIe tractors in some effective way speaks well for its forbearance. That it has not closed down its mines and smelters lor a few years rather than suffer the in justice and destruction threatened by its enemies is a marvel to men who under stand the depths of depravity to which the latter have descended, apparently with somne public approval. MR. CLARK AND HIS NEWSPAPER. There is nothing more absurd than for a newspaper like the Butte Miner to rail against the Inter Mountain as a corpora tion organ. Whenever that pialper seeks to create prejudice against the capital that is developing the resources of Mon tana it reflects quite as severely upon Sen ator Clark as it does upon the corpora tion it is seeking to injure. Senator Clark is proliabliy as rich as any corporation in Montana. At indi vidual worth $too,ooo,ooo is quite as "'terrible" from a financial or political standpoint as a corporation with the satme amount of capital. All Senator Clark's prop'erties are incorporated like those of the other mining companies. There is ,no difference on, that score. Corporations are just like Individuals-they should both' be judged according to their merits and their work. The Amalgamated company and Senator Clark have spent many mil lions in Butte and deserve credit for their enterprise. The people of nll classes know what would happen if the present plot of the AM. O. P. crowd to run their business or drive themn out of the state and into olbscurity should succeed. The people have had a chantce to reflect on the sub ject of llutte's dependedence upon capital for the plrosperity it has enjoyle. They know the reason for the depression that has restiltcd from thli recent lack of con fidetnce in courts anti the threats of fur ther judicial outrages. To abuse a cor plration simply because it is a corporation is not the act of sensiblei and broad min!ctd men. I';artictlarly is it unwise fir one rich :man; to :dias.e other rich llen fir Ibeing rich, it ltt.g as the monity of all is being invcsteI in industtrial e tcrpris''s anld scatitered anioin; the people. Yet that is the attitude of th, Miner.

AN ABSURD CIRCULAR. The circular signed by George II. Rob inson iml purporting to give tile political and financial afliliititns of the nlewspapers of Montana does a great wrong lto a body of honest and hard working citizens. The inewspaper men of Montana are as clean handed and honoialile inl their dealings as any other class of mien ic the state. It is true that a few papers in tihe state are engaged in Ioosting the plot to control and corrupt the sttpreme court andl that they are neither republican nor straight democratic. The great na jority of Montana newspapers, however, are conductedl in the interests of tilh peo tle, by honorable men, and tlhe attack luponi u hem in tle Robinson-M. 0. P. cir cular is grossly unjust. In all likelihood Mr. Robinson did not write the circular, ail it is safe to say hie could not, off s hand, call thie names of half a dozen . newspapers ill the state or the names of their editors, lut he has not repudiated tihe circular, and the outfit hlie represents it ust lie held responsible for it by the loyal newspapers of the state. REPUBLICAN SERVICES TO THE It COUNTRY. The elecla Record has mnade a brief and coliprclhensivye sucmmiary of the bene fits which Recputhlicanl rule has conferred upon the people, and the record is one or that any party might lie proud of. We it produce this scummiary as follows: a- During the adininistration of Abrahaum kls incoln the republican party passed the Shociesteadl law, a ieasccsure that hais done - chere fur the settlcdeent of the \Vest than all others coimnined. S The republican party abolished slavery. The republicaic party gave the privileges if civil rights, citizectshicp and suffrage as to tie colored race. di- The republican party estacl!ilished the as systecct of ictteriial revence taxation, bIy whicch about one-Icalf of thte total expenses cal of the goverment are paid by tle trallfi' tt in liquors, tobacco and cigars. k's Tie republican party passed the legal of tender laws, and provided for a safe acd no reliable fortt ot money.. n The R'ptblican party pensioned all de at, serving old soldiers and vetcrans. The ,republicanc party enactd liberal laws r.lating to the mineral latcds of ty the United States, and thus built up the great mining industries of the West, em ploying thousands of men, and adding enormously to the wealth and prosperity of the whole country. - The republican party resumed specie payments, and Ilaced the country on a safe financial bhais. The republican party reduced postage on all mail matter, established the money order system, the railway mail service, free mail delivery, and made the post oflice department of the greatest useful ness to all the people. 1 hel republican party provided for the endlowmlent of agricultural colleges d public schools, by the grants of pu'Xe lands. The replublican party provided for e distribution of seeds to the people of is country, and otherwise aided in the pro mlotionl of agricultural pursuits. IThi republican party provided for the establlishment of fish hatcheries through.4 out the tInited States, and for the arti-, ficial propagation and distribution of fish. T'he republican party established the life saving service. The republican party enacted the copy right law, thus protecting the rights of authors in the products of their intel-. lectual labors. The republican party established $h4 ULnited States circuit courts of appeal, to relieve the supreme court, and p'l'e vent a delay of years in the decision of ilimportailt eases. The republican party established the principle of reciprocity, by which a large ly increased market is provided for Amllericanll products. The relpublican party enacted the ad minis'trative customs act, which assures justice and culuality inl the collection of duties. The. relublilcan party admlitted as states ini the I'nion the territories of Kansas, Nebraska, Nevada, Colorado, Montana, Nortih I)akota, South I)akota, Washington, Idaho and Wyoming. The republican party enacted the anti trust law. 'The republlican party enacted the nation. aIl b:nkrulptry laws of I867 and iR88, which relieved thousands of honest men front the burdens of debt, and restored thli to usefulness in the businless world. Thie replublican party, for a period of more than 4i years, has provided for the pirotecti)on of Amnerican labor front comn petition with the pauper labor of Europe, Asia and other countries. f. I. The relpublican party passed the national. irrigation law, the el'ect of v.hich will hue to reclaim millions of acres of the arid lantds of the \West. The republican Iparty passed the great isthmian canal law, providing for the con struction of a ship canal connecting the Atlantic and T'acitic oceans, which will be of incstimahble benieit to the Westert states. The republican1 party has built up the indusltries aIN coummerce of the country to such all extent that our exports are largely in excess of our imports, and is now priovidlinlg as a Imarket for our excess produets the great Asiatic seaports which make tributary (oooon,ooo of the in habitantsi if Asia. ', Thie repullliican party has birought the country out of the poverty and bank rupilty, in which it was left by the demo cratic party, into the greatest era of pros perity ever known in American history. 'These are a few of the benecficial acts of the republlican party for the people of the United States. Compare this record with file record of the demnocratic party, and then ask yourselves what the democratic party has ever done for tile people of this coun try. THE ST. LOUIS BANDITTI. a St. Louis boodlers are falling over each other in an endeavor to turn state's evi dence. This is characteritic of all rascals. They stand shoulder to shoulder during fair weather, lbut when the meshes of the law begin to tighten about them they are seized with panic, and each hastens to save his own neck at the expense of that of his fellow-scoundrel. Not many of the rascals will be given an opportunity to squeal. The authorities have apparently all the testimony they neel to convict the whole banditti, and the thieves will go to their punishment together. The present indications are that the St. Louis gang is the most brazen and corrupt that was ever got together for public plunder. If the law is permitted to take its course with them it is as much as could be expected of it. Hardships of Genius. Milton sold his copyright of "Paradise lost" for $7a-, at three payments, and fin ished his tfe in obscurity. Homer was a beggar. Spenser died in want. Cervantes died of hunger. Dryden lived in poverty and distreqs. ITerrance, the dramatist, was a slave. Butler lived a life of penury and died poor. l'lautus, the Roman comic poet, turned a mill. Paul Gorghese had 4.t trades, yet starved with all. Tasso, the Italian poet, was often dis tressed for five shillings. ()tway, the English dramatist, (lied pre maturely and through hunger. lBacon lived a life of meanness and dis tress. Steele, the humorist, lived a life of per feet warfare with bailiffs. Sir Walter Raleigh died on the scaffold. ltentivoglio was refused admission to a hospital he had erected himself. The death of Collins was through neg lect, first causing mental derangement. Chattertun, the child of genius and mis fortune, destroyed himself at 18. Savage died in a prison at Bristol, where he ~as confined for a debt of $40o. (;ohlsmith's "Vicar of Wakefield" was ,sold fr a trifle to save him from the grip of the law. Fiehling lies in the burying ground of the English factory at I.isbon, without a stone to mark the spot. "l.usaid," the great Portuguese epIc, ended his life, it is said, in an almshquse, all, at any rate, was supported by a fait. ful black servant, who begged in the streets o, .isbon for him. ii Not Quite All. d "I suppose you are quite a city man now, Uncle Si?"

D OWN in the Bitter Root valley.there still lingers memories of the dele gation from Butte who took in the sights of the place and had a good time while thd press gang was in session. "I was one Of those who saw the Bit ter Root when it was at its best," said C. 1'. Connolly today. "I went down to Mis soula on some legal business and had to stay a couple of dvys to await develop C. P. CONNOLLY. ments in business matters and improved the opportunity to run down the Bitter Root and see how my newspaper friends were enjoying themselves. "Hamilton did herself proud. Such a reception-or series of receptions I should have said-was never known in this state before. It was an unqualified suc cess from the b inning to the end. Sat urday, Sunday Alonday and Tuesday, all were golden days for the Bitter Root peo ple and their visitors. I believe the news paper men of the state must have a cor rect conception of Montana hospitality inw. They saw the real thing while in the l:itter Root valley." O NCI the people in Northwestern d; 1 Montana: thought there could not I. lie fruit grown in this state, but they have S, found out that we can produce more fruit F than any other," said a resident of Kalis- Flathead Fruit pell to an Inter Moun- growers to Meet. a! tain reporter at the 1 Iultte hotel this afternoon.

"The next meeting of the County fIor ticultural society will be held September -o, and arrangements will be made to have a display of Montana fruits at the A Flathead County fair next month.

Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 13.-Forest fires -ire now burning in every county of WVest ern \Washington frotn British Columbia to the Columbia river. The conflagrations are most extensive in Mason, Thurston, Chehalis and Lewis counties, to the south west of Tacomna. The towns of Elma and Folsom, in Chehalis county, have been partially destroyed. Each was the center of large logging, lumber and shingle mill industries. Other towns which are in great danger are Shelton, Matlock, Black Hlills, Bucoda, Rainier and Castle Rock, in Southwestern Washington. EnInuclaw and Buckley, in the Cascade mountains, are threatened. The latest reports from Mason county are that every portion of that county is in hlimes, with the exception of Shelton. The logging camps of Thomas Bordeaux, near Olympia, are surrounded bIy flames, Forty men have gone on horseback to rescue the women and children. The (;ray's Harbor branch of the Northern Pacific is on fire, even to the ties, in sev eral places.

Wagons loaded with refugees are arriving from the burning district, and people are beginning to move out of Elma. Many farmhouses and barns have been destroyed. Ashes and cinders are falling east of Elms. A high wind favors the fire and gives it terrific velocity. The Odd Fellows' cemetery, one and a half miles from town,' is burning and .n many Elma citizens are taking every pre cautfon to save their homes from, the a threatened calamity. ir The seven big mills have an .aggregate, it value of over $500,000 in their plants - alone.

FINANCIAL ALLIANCE TO CONTROL ALL RAILROADS (Continued from Page One.) tion and exclude all others from that field except the favored members of the al liance. A Tremendous Combine. The combination of interests makes one of the bigest deals that has ever been seen. To consider the vested rights of the two big houses east of Chicago, to say nothing of their property west of that point, gives them a cpaitalization of over two billion and a mileage of over 3o,ooo. The aim of it is to control the transpor tation facilities between Chicago, St. Louis, Great Lakes, Ohio river and the Canadian boundary and the Potomac through to the Atlantic coast. In that teritory they wil legislate rates and con ditions and do about as they please sub ject to the interstate commerce commis sion. They are not content with the es tablishment of a supervision and oversight of the transportation facilities of that ter ritory, but also control the coal coal mines, many steel mills and all the elevators for the export and trans-shipment of grain.
