REPUBLICAN SIGNS. The throat-cutting in the d;iemocratic party goes on with unabated fury. Thelre is blood on the sands of Ilutte and the verdure in the cow counties is ta;lillne to a deep crimson. The.e are all good rpublican igns, and the victory for the party in Monltana this fall seeuis almost as giol as woo. ait republicans atl good citizens generally bhoul take inothing for granted, hut work unceasingly from this time till the polls close onr election day. The hotior of the judiciary and inlulti;al peace are at stake. In no lprevious eam:paign in the state has the workingman had so vital :t in trert in the tcomlle as lhe has at present. Republicanu u mccess meats honest couts, bu.iness stability, open mines, busy lo. g;&Z camps and plenty of work at good, wages:l . The republican party stands for all thce thiings, and demo,,cratic success has ala\;ys bru,:ght tho riverac. IDAHO REPUBLICANS. The platform adopted by the repulli- ar canl (of Idaho in their convention at Boise in August has cau.ed a great deal sr of discussion through the colutmnils of the press. It has been given undue noto- Vic riety, for in all prolbability if the real c causes for the presence of the "tarilTff d, revision" plank in that docunent were lis more generally known, the entire tmatter would he dismis.ed with but an ex pression of regret thatthat so unf,rtunate a declaration should have been permitted tt, to find its way into a party ellunciatiolt r purporting to be a republlican platform. For a clear underst:anding of the sit uation it will be necesary to relate a little of the past history of the repub lican party in Idaho. .As was the case ti ill lmot westcrn states, tile forces of the party in Idaho were scattered during the op last two national campaigns by a dier ill ence of opinion on the money question; but with the complete passing of that is sue, the republicans have come together once more and under the reorganization the greater part of the former members lo have comte back into the fold,. One of thile new leaders under the reor- It ganization who has come to the front th very rapidly during the last year is W. f, E. Borah of Boise, now a senatorial as- t pirant. Not many years ago this samle Borah was a staunch populist and is even ccused of having been a candidate for to congress on the people's party ticket. It ti will be better understood when it is re- r( called that Borah is a native son of tI Kansas where Ihe is said to have imbibed those queer principles. After his defeat for congress he became converted to re publicanism and was a standard hearer in the ranks of that party until 1896, when in company with Senator Dubois he led off the monetary reformers and organized the "silver republicans" of Idaho. In the meantime Senator Dubois t has seen fit to leave the party of his choice entirely and is today one of the a democratic captains in the Gem of the Mountains state, while Mr. Borah is once more engaged in actively courting the favor of the republicans. For some titme Borah has been want ing to be Idaho's next senator and as a successor to Senator Heitfield, democrat, and will be chosen by the incoming legis lature, Borah has been laying his wires to establish a following preparatory to capturing that office. Being an energetic worker as well as an intrepid politician, he has succeeded in getting control of the younger element among the Idaho republicans. The fruits of his labors were evident in the recent state convention and Borah is credited with having dic tated the nomination of Morrison for governor, though he fought against great odds, consisting of the old line repub lirant whose leader was former Senator Shoup, affectionately called "the grand old man" of the republicans in Idaho. Furthermore Borah has succeeded in get ting a delegation to the legislature from Ada county, in which Boise is located, and which is pledged to him for the senate. Though not generally conceded, it is known that Borah wrote the Idaho re publican platfornm which has been the cause of so much discussion. Now, in the light of the man's checkered political career, it is not difficult to understand how the un-republictin plank happened to be incorporated in the party doctrine of Idaho. As it is hard to teach an old dog new tricks, so one could scarcely expect a one-time populist who has also flirted with the democracy, to become entirely purged of his former fallacies in so short a time. But the shame of it all is that such an lrresponsible politician should be per mittedl to capture the republican organ ization and inject into its official pro nouncelncnt his former beliefs which are so entirely opposed to the Irinciples for which the national republican party Standls. Viewed in this light, the drclaration of the Idaho republicans for tariff revision is entirely absurd and in reality doc: not deserve serious consideration. (;ranted that thile demand had come from Iona fide republicans, it would have Iben little short of presumption; for though the re publicans of Idaho are entitled to their views on any question, they woutld have no right to make so radical an ante convention declaration. The attitude of the party on an issue of such basic im portance canl only hIe determined in Ina tional convention after due di liberation. The situation in Idaho is only another instance of the tail trying it wag the d.g Iaid there is every prIbal,ility that as usual the dog will refuse to bie wagged. IT IS UP TO THE PEOPLE. In the lpopular phrase of the day, it is utp to the ieoplle of Montana to assert their llsvietions' for clei got rnmient, including honest coutrts, and thlie republican party is the only party to whlich they can hopl'fully look for such an administration. It is every voter's dIuty who cherishes the hliior awl gotl ia1me of the Trl'('asure stale, to c( it his intlui'ec for higher prin ciples. If this is done, tie party now In l.powe'r will no longel r be able to withstand tfl c' llocertd i. ort of that demiianl for all that sta; ils for the interests of the I'llr.t, and the right men will Ise In st.dhIl in th i i,lt pilace.. 'lT'hen will the publi n intcr I ise consvrved against the enroaclhmneit of privalte "grafters." 'tctr havi the alldherents of rcpu'iican plincipleh ih:il such an opl ,ort niity to rally to tlhe r po'li t of the party. Victory is in the air, for the hlse divide.d against it.self .m-t fil, amil such is the dire calanity that now besets the democratic hosts. \\'hichevcr faction of the opposi tioin ins at IoIzeman will go into the fall ealipaign w\ithout the suplport of the fac tin that w's tiurned down, and this will ma:l:e a big hlo' in the vote of the regu lar hdemocratic ticket. lhus the party's stre'igith will l e shatitrei l. Not only inn this account is republican victory ass.reI; hbut more principally be cmise of the f:act that many fair-minlded democrats, andl thirefore good citizens, are disgustedl with the wranghling of their brethluren, and in order to administer a re buke to them they have openly signitied their intention iof repudiating the demo eratic ticket at the polls. The splendid prosperity that has en compasscd the whole country during the past years undelr republican administra tions has been a pIotent factor in winning over many men from tihe ranks of the oppolsition, and these new acquisitions will mlatterially assist in carrying the fall clec tions in Montana for the party of progress anmt prosperity. 'Ihe greatest gIoodl to the greatest nuin- a her is sound republican doctrine as op posed t to thile contest for personal interest, I now involving the d.e:nocratic party. Whllo then that nmakes any pretentlions to a desire s for the good of the whole people can s hesitate in his choice betwo:n these? s The great mass of the people of Mon tana want clean government, and to get it they have but to knock at the portals of r01pul icanism this fall and the bounty of thalt party shall he openled unto them. PUT MONTANA iN LINE. Monta:;, electors should note the great progress miade in the business of the coun try under republican policies and cast their ballots in November for a continuance of this progress and prosperity. In the great manufacturing industries the activity of the manufacturer and the earn ings of the workinlgman show striking improvement. The cotton manufacturers have increased their consumption of domestic cotton from two and a half mil lion bales in 1896 to over three and a half millions in 1901. The number of iron furnaces in blast has increased from I59 in 1896 to 266 in 19oI, and the manufacture of tin plate has grown from less than 40,000,000 pounds in 1894 to 678,o00,000 pounds ill 1900. The number of wage-earners engaged in the manufacturing industries alone in creased fronm 4,251,613 in 1890 to 5,231,687 in 1900, and their wages from $1,891,228, t 321 in 1890 to $2,330,273,021 in 1900oo. The home market has been more and r more sup,plicd with Ihome manufactures, and the exportation of manufactures has grown from $228,000,000 in 1896 to $412,000,000 in 1901or. d A vote for either of the warring factions p in the democratic party is a vote against prosperity and therefore again,): the wel fare of the business man and the laboring ` man alike. Montana should take her place in the line of progress. al NOTHING DOING IN THE RAND. to The Inter Mountain has called attention 0f to the fact that the South African fields do >g not offer the best inducements these days ct for miners. This is confirmed by a letter :d printed in the Call of Lead, South Dakota, ly written by a miner from that camp, who is rt now in the South African mines. We quote a portion of his letter: :h "There is nothing auch doing here as yet, and the outlook is not very good. Few mines are running and they are drop ping only about half their stamps. The trouble is occasioned by the scarcity of boys-native laborers-and the poor pay they receive-only 30 shillings per monthl so they won't stay when they do get them. There are thousands of men on the Rand out of work, but still I believe a first-class machine man might get work if he rustled for it. I have quit the mines and gone to diamond-drilling; we are working about so miles west of the French Rand. I would not adlvisce men to come to this country at the pre.ent time, but of course they can use their own judgment. lahey are putting discjharged soldiers to work in the mines here to help on machines, at 7t'/ shillings per day-andI you know what that means, as soon as they are able to run a machine 'It'his is likely to suggest to American miners that there's "no place like home." It must he extremely depressing to the political friends of Mr. Ilcinze to find that illustrious citizen today very distinctly and decile ily "over a barrel." This spectacle is all the more depressing and dishearteu ing for the reason that the Monte Cristo of Butte mountains is a being of such amazing popularity and strong "personal miagnetism." To see a man of enormous personal lmagnetism over a barrel is enough to draw tears to the eyes. lieine had the hest of it in Jeffer soull ctounty, where his recently-acquired smelter is located. lie achieved this ad vantage by the aid of voters imported from Ilutte, where they had previously dlone ditty in his alleged democratic con ventio. It is oily one more illustration of the malln's fraudulent and corrupt po litical methods. Hleiuze has no smelter in "Oin to Ilozcin.n t" is now the battlccry of the double headed and two-tailed democ racy. It is noteworthy, too, that the repub lican elephant is not a bit scared at the appearance of this strange malformation. Indeed, the elephant wears a well-defined griln. Mr. lceinze joined the democratic party, but every hour reveals the fact that the dlemocratic party has utterly refused to join Mr. lilcinze. This is at least one thintg that shoull be put down to the credit of the democracy. That's sad news from Iiclena todtay abouit Goverinor T'oole being unable to attend the liozemant conventiont becatut of - adverse votes of his fellow citizens. But then what else could self-respectintg demo crats do to his excellency? MONTANA EDITORS HAVE A FEW WORDS TO SAY Heinze's Buzzard Editor Comes in for a Few Touching Testimonials- ti Perintent Comments. , "A Journalistic Skate." (Livingston Enterprise.) It is evidelnt that some of the hitherto self respecting weekly newspapers of the t, state have been reduced to such financial ti straits that they are forced to become a kind of second edition for the disreputa ble utite Reveille, which was recently re vived for the purpose of trying to elect a Ileinze supreme court. Some of them are circulating supplemecnts furnished by the c Ileince campaign conmmittee and for this t service they are paid from $0o to $35 a C week. It is regrettable that any newspaper shoull be so cheap, in the first place, and in the second place it is mtore to be re gretted that there is any self-respecting edi tor in Montana willing to hei made the mouthpiece of a journalistic vulture of the O'Farrell type. If there are editors in this state who believe Ileinze to Ihe right they ought to be able to tell the reason why, instead of being ready to make themselves a phonograph for the utterances of the slanders and vindictiventess of a cheap jour nalistic skate. A Hopeful Democratic Editor. (Missoula Democrat.) It is to be hoped that the proceedings of the Bozeman convention will be order ly and dignified. There is no reason why they should be otherwise. The Montana democracy has well defined rules for the management of its conventions. These are based on fairness and on the rule of the majority. They protect at the same time the rights of the minority. Some people apprehend turbulence, but there can be no pretext for such. The people of Montana will scrutinize the acts of the ofliTers and delegates. They will hold to a strict ac count any persons who wantonly disturb t the proceedings. In such a large conven t tion the supporters of order will undoubted ly be largely in the majority. It will be in their power to squelch all disturbers. Democratic Sentiment. t (I)illon Examiner.) The result of the democratic county conventions and primaries held in the state 7 during the present week are uniformly un favorable to Mr. Ileinze. Democrats every where realize that the demoratic na%' would he totally wrecked shoald Mr. Ilemnze d succeed in getting control of the party , organization and machinery and dictate the nomination of a supreme court judge is and subsequently, through a legislature, also to controlled by him, secure an increase in the membership of the supreme court from three to five. as st Harmonious Democrats. :1- (Twin Bridges Monitor.) For weeks past the Twin Bridges demo .g crats have beenl cutting each others' throats cc and the climax was reached at the pri maries last Saturday when, with set teeth and clinched hands they met at George F. Whith's hall. Ye gods and little butter cups, if a glance could slay there would be on few democrats at Twin Bridges today. do The Bozeman Mill. er (Missoulian.) The contest for points between Kid Clark and Young IIeinze at Bozeman, is Tuesday, September 23, is attracting con Ye siderable attention. Kid Clark is the fa vorite in the pools, but there is plenty of as IHeize mloney int sight-except in Missoula. PEOPLE WE MEET. H ARRY GALWEY Is going to the con, vcntion with the rest. He is In some way concerned with the management of a glee club which has a repertoire of songs that is calculated to wake the echoes and make the welkin ring very distinctly. "Among those who are implicated in the glee club arn ~arlie Swartz and G. HARRY GALWEY. A. Davis," said Mr. Galwey today. "They are both splendid singers, and with myself and C. F. Kelly they make a combination hard to beat." This boast is not unworthy. The glee club sang themselves into the hearts of the people of the Bitter Root valley on the occasion of the recent Press Asso ciation meeting, and will doubtless make the Gallatin valley famous while they stay in the convention town. 6 ' lfE coal-man was made glad, while S the ice-man got miad," face tiously remarked II. TI. nRggs of Helcna yesterday at the Butte hotel. "Coal deal crs received orders for 'lhot-stuff' with astonishing rapidity during the first part of the week when Cold Snap Makes the cold snap swoop Lively Business. ed down upon the town. By evening the ilmost of the coal companies had more orders thanl tlhey could supply for several days. Old timers recalled a day in Sep tember about to years ago when the whole town made for the coal companics and depleted their entire stock in a few hours. Prices are not as high as the dealers would like to see them but they are all standing pat, ready to jump the prices at the slightest provocation. Many of the wise people are now laying in their winter supply of coal and taking advan tage of the reasonable price, for the fig ures are certain to go skyward long be fore the holiday season comes. The story is told of one long headed mitan who was wise enough to buy his coal when the summler sun was hottest and he made enough by the investment to lie sure of a hot time this winter when most other people will lie shivering." J G. (OSS of IButte, who returned from * the neceting of the Knights of Pythias at Missoula, was very enthusias tic over the gathering. In speaking of the growth of the order in Montana he said: "Thi Knights of When Brave Men Pythias came into Come Here. the state of Mon tana November 5, 1879. l)amon lodge of BIutte holds the initial charter and since that time the order has spread over the entire state. "At the present time there is no city, town or village in Montana that does not have a Pythian branch. The grand lodge of Montana was instituted at ilutte in January of 1885. At the last conven tion held at Great Falls it was composed of 44 sublordinate lodges and 71 delegates. The membenrship of the order at that time was 2.431, representing an investment of $60o,, o.60." Like Montana. [ILos Angeles Times.1 We have a man in our midst who pro poses to live forever.

With the original scenery, cast as good as, and in some respects, better than the original, and a well drilled and effective chorus, Nixon and Zimmerman's "The Strollers" presented at the Broadway last evening as good a comic opera as one will meet with in a lifetime. Headed by Mar guerita Sylva, whose popularity in the East has never been questioned an,. who now invades the Western field to add new laurels to her crown, the cast includes George C. Boniface, Jr., John D. Gilbert, D. L. Don among the men, and Lou Mid dleton and iJorothy Hunting. This com bination of beauties and fun-makers is hard to beat and the show as it stands is the best that has been seen in Butte in many a long day. "The Strollers" has been touched up and materially improved since Francis Wilson created the role of August Lumpe, in agor. New songs have been interlo. pated and Miss Sylva, with her magnifi cent voice and grand opera training, is able to switch in what is so seldom heard in light opera, but what all lovers of mussc love so well, an aria or two. twing to the fact that the orchestra was way off last night, her solos did not go o. so well as was expected, but a rehearsal or two to day will doubtless straighten out matters. Two numbers, toe ftirtation chorus, "I Give My Hand, But Not My Heart, You Understand," and the topical song, 'look It Up in the Dream Book," for ..tr. Don, Mr. Boniface and Miss bylva, were wildly ap plauded and the principals responded to encores until unable to sing another line. The flirtation chorus, for the star and eight men, rivals the famous sex tette in "Florodora" in popularity and surpasses that famous ptece in musical quality. The chorus is the original and Miss Sylva sings the role so much better than Miss George, who torturedl tie coun try in the piece last year, that while she lacks the chic and vivacity of that little lady, she makes a hit equally big and is easily the winner of the .iearts of every man out front. A truly beautiful woman is Sslva, who knows how to handle her charms and make the most of them. Thle Broadway was packed to the doors last night :and the seat sales for this even ing and tomorrow evening indicate that the engagement of " lihe Strollers" will break all records. PERSONALS.
