Busi ness interests are not enjoying that de gree of prosperity in Butte that they iave done in the past, and one of the reasons Is found in the curtailed registration which is more than 2,500 less than two years ago. For the most part this les sened registration is in the wards where miners reside. , It is a result growing out of a war of litigation that has closed mines and reduced the force in smelters. This curtailment of labor has of neces sity been carried into other parts of the state to a corresponding degree. Work in the lumber camps and in every allied industry has necessarily been slackened. But in Butte and Silver Bow county the worst results are seen, They are ap parent in the one thousand empty houses in this city and in the two hundred and more in Walkerville and Centerville. This is the work of Mr. Heinze the self-styled "savior of labor." A vote for the Heinze sell-out ticket tomorrow will be a vote to close more mines and increase the number of empty houses in this camp. IT WILL BE A VOTE TO TIE UP THE TOWN. For the Good of Montana. By the time the next regular edition of the Inter Mountain is from the press the votes that will determine the result of the campaign will be in the ballot' boxes. It has been an extraordinary campaign, especially in Silver Bow county. Mr, Ileinze and his newspapers, particularly his campaign sheet in this city, have resorted to methods that would shame any state or community. It is almost the universal verdict that hie has damaged the cause for which he has been striving. So far as the Inter Mountain is concerned it has presented and discussed the issues fully and frankly and in a manner which leaves it no regret. No line has been pencnd that needs either explanation or apology. s With the issues before the people, there is no reasonable doult that the electors of the slate will declare for the republican ticket. That ticket stands for the best interests of all the people. One of the most important matters which the citizens of this contly have to consider is whether they will indorse by their votes the contention of Mr. Ilcinze that the legislature shall be turned over to' his control and the judicial situation in the coutty reccive the approval of the people. It is inconccivable that this will be done. The judiciary of Silver hlou (counliy has Ibeen a millstone around tIhe neck of Montana. It has been a notice tq outside capital that it can comie here only at the risk of confiscation. It has been showni that the most flagrant "outrages have been perpetrated here ulpon t he rights of property, with a result that law and justice have been made a mock-y. It has cost litigants alt enormous sum of money, Mr. Ileinze included. Every hltsiness interest in lutte and Silver Ilow county have suffered greatly by reason of this. There is scarcely a counlty in the state that has not beet a sufferer to a greater or less degree. No interest has )beenl benefited except that of the lawyers. The total loss to the people tmight lihe computed at many mnillions of dollars. I',uler this systemi of strife and hitterness lhitte has gone' backward as a city ani is likely to c,mtiiine to retrograde iunless the result of the election tomorrow piromises relief. It has Ibeen Mr. ltinze's Ipolicy to hght compting companies in the courts and to protect their ilterests fr ot confiiscation tlhey have beei, forced to meet him in his war of litigation. It has been an mifortunate and an expensive busi ness for laboring men. ()net case alone cost the employes of the listoni & Montana company $3S,,0oo in wages lost. In tiiany othlier cases hundreds of men have been heartl'csly thlrown\ out of work for months at a time 'lhe Amalgamated companies have not sought to interfere with Mr. I iinze in any legitimate mining operation where their own interests have not beeti first assailed and puit in jeopardy. Nor have they any intention to interfere with him in any way. So far as they are concerned lie cani remain in Ilutte and Montana and carry on his own miningl operations as long as lie chooses to do so. ()I tlhe other hand, it has been his lpolice and hiis boast that lie wioul drive the Amial ;gariated companies fronm the state, lie has done everything that lay in his power to accomntplish this. As has been pointed ouit, this ihas been done with fearful loss to thl Iecop'e of this comniunity and the state. * ,. No one can guess the millions of dollars that this policy onf flly and the oun scrupulous methods by which it Ihas been carried ion through the coutrts has kept out "of Montana. To es.timate thihs saiss to tihe mautwealth at $teo,uyo,,oim wouldi not he to, place the ligures too high. The bulk of this has Ibeen kept out of the pocket tif labor. IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE. THE STIGMA THAT RESTS WITH SUCH CRUSHING WEIGHT UPON THE STATE MUST BE REMOVED. TOMOR ROW IS THE DAY TO DO IT. Under the Banner of Roosevelt. The ine Weste isi for ou sevelt, irrespeclivte ii f, politcris, ai ,t is plain that this fart will yi frcibly indirstd at the polls tomotrrow in all of the Wiestern states in fti( (' lion. Never has a natio,;l ('ec.utiver' si complletely annihilated party lines as ,.se)v\' lt. i la d in all partis of the colntrt amenl are rallying to his support, as etidenrd by the rg;:manization of the "loo,.ctlt deto,':atst" antd stlt l;r parties. This coniition will r,t.ult in the election of many repuhlic:ua congressmen to .nort,,w, \whllo will b sent to \\Washington for the purl o.e of assistin:g President lRuos'velt carry tut his party's wis. pulicecs. It is saf., therefore, to predict that t soime Ielanlcholy surlpri.es a\wait the democrats of the clntrllll y ; as the re;.tlt ofi to itiorrow's e'ectioni, s. In this state thie oppul :,ition is already eumccdling the election of the lioni. J. t I. lDiixn by the republlicans, anid lmanly democratis have expressed a desire to see himn successful, for they are heartily in symplathy with tIle work of President Roscevelt, anld Mr. Dixon will give to the adminiistration his earnest supplort. It is recognized that the tariff must lie maintained, fotr Montaia's many iin terCsts demCtaliI its retentiot, and tlhe tlecitoin of any other than Di)ion woIl lie t ini direct opplosition to our vast wool interests. ()ne republican vote in congress traitn Montana at this time will be greatly aplpreciated in Washlington, and will be substantially recogiized when the timeI colies Iiy valu:able t gislation favoring the T'Ireasure state, t The duty of tIhe pCoile of Moiitamia is Iu'ain. let thie dlcct ])ixon and a rlepublican legislature inow, andl in two )years ihenlce they \\ill lie sure to send a re- a pululicani United States senator to \\'ashlington. Then this state will ie utce more in safe waters, rescued from tlhe breakers of demiocracy, and serenely sailing for ward t i lpeace iul prosl)crity, wealth and thie well-Ileing of every citiizen. @heerlnq News For Republicans. Foriccasts of tomi,rrow's election from our ncighblioring states are gratifying aid will act as an incentive to Montana rcltublicans to take olf their coats early and F work for party sutccess as they have nlever worked blcefre. Front Idaho coniies the wurd that a rel)tblicani congres.slmaln \sill surely be elected, as the people of that state rccognize tlhe necessity of protecting their interests against tariLf linkiikcriniig, whliichli has beeni thlrcatcncld. L'tahl andl Nevada also Ipromise to get in line \with progress andl pro spIerity, for it is conctdei in every ciinnionwiealth of the \Vest that nowY is the olitiorttnity of our lpeople to mnake a stand for the ailvancelocnt of thleir country. \We mnust all c juin hlands if we would secure the future againiist the want anid disaster of which we have tasted too miuchl in days giole biy whenl the decocr:ats were at the whecel. Everywhere in thIe \West the reipublicanls have dotlne yeonalln work in the canm paign just closing, ant d it is sale to forecast a victory so delccisive that it will long lie reiembercd in the annals of our history. It is now only a question of majoriics, and let the peoplle roll ulI such a big imajority in favor of pirotcctioni anid adlace- i man to \Washlingtuon, and MonitaIna, not being )chini the rest, will send the lion. J. country's prosperity again. Evcry \Wcstcrn state should, aniid undoubtedly will, se.nd a repntblican congress nian to \\'ashingtoun and Montana, not being lichlind the rest, wil send the Ilon. J. MI. D)ixon. The Amalgamated companies employ upwards of 15,000 men in their mines, smelters, lumber and coal camps in Mon tana. It is the wish and it is to the Interests of these companies that their laboring men shall be steadily employed at the highest possible wages with an eight-hour day's work. To this policy they are irrevocably committed. To ald them in carrying out this policy vote down the sell-out ticket of Mr. Heinze. Has any laboring man or business man of Butte or Silver Bow county a written contract with Mr. Heinze, wit nessed before a notary, to share w'th him in any swag he may get In the event that his sell-out game shall suooeed? If he hasn't, where will he be in the event of a sell-out? VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. LET CAPITAL COME IN. None will deny that the development of Montana has been seriopsly delayed by the attacks which have been made upon outside capital that has sought investment here, The state manifestly should open its doors to the people and capital of other sections, and by every means insure new-comers that here they can safely in vest their money without fear of political buccaneering leading up to legal confisca tion. Such conditions do not exist under the present democratic regime, and there is no reasotn to believe that a continuance of that party in power would ever bring about a change. The record of the republican party on all mailters affecting the public interests is clear and praiseworthy. The people of Montanal shoual encourage the development of minies, the cultivation of fields and the stocking of the ranges. The only way in which their sincere intentions can be ex pressed will be by electing the republican ticket friom top to bottom in all parts of the tate. This sugge ti(on is addressed to the in telligence of the electors of Montana, be cause of the fact that the republican party Ias contilcnce in them as ICmen of reason IIho will inot be swayed by ilmaudliln en treaties oa personal lines. It remains for the discerninag citizens of Montana to assert their convictions at the polls tomnor row, and the Inter Mountain firmly bc licves that they will give their stamp of approval to the republican ticket. VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. SOME HEINZE SYMPATHIZERS AR= TRYING TO IMPRESS PEOPLE THAT IT IS GOOD FOR THE TOWN AND GOOD FOR LABOR THAT THE FIGHT AND WAR AGAINST THE AMALGA MATED COMPANIES SHOULD BE KEPT UP. NO MAN SHOULD BE DELUDED BY ANY SUCH IDEA. LET PEOPLE RE FLECT UPON ITS FOLLY BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE. TO KEEP UP TillS FIGHT AND PARTICULARLY TO HOLD UP AND STRENGTHEN THE HAND OF HEINZE IN HIS ASSAULT UPON THZ LARGEST INTEREST OF THIS TOWN IS TO KILL THE TOWN. IT WILL RESULT IN IRREPARABLE INJURY. VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. THE EIGHT-HOUR LAW. In nothing has Mr. Heinze so signally failed as in his attempt to fool the workingmen of Silver Bow county and the state into the belief that the eight hour law was in the slightest danger. He started his campaign from the court house stops with this falsehood on his lips by the talk of an alleged conference to find a way if possible to declare the law unconstitutional. The utter falsity of this statement was immediately shown. The men at that conference have made it plain that the purpose of it was to arrange for put ting the law into effect instead of in terfering in any way with iLs operation. The Amalgamated companies put the eight-hour act into effect in all their mines before the law itself became op erative. That did not look like any in tention or desire to evade it. Since then the Amalgamated companies have been authoritively committed to eight hours as the maximum day's work in their mines whatever may become of the eight-hour law. Mr. Heinze's ghost story is swept away by a breath. It was a shallow attempt to fool and mislead the workingmen of this camp, and it has fallen as flat as any of the many sense less things he has done. The eight hour law is here to stay and the miners know it. VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. FIGURES TO REMEMBER TOMORROW The fall figures of the bureau of sta tititis that have just been received from \Vaslhington relating to our exports deal with merchandise that is not, manu factured, such as grain, cotton, petro lcutm, cattle, provisions, etc. Comunodities coming under this classification constitute about .5 per cent of our total foreign trade. Although the averages for i902 are somew\vhat less than they were for the preceding year, the month of Septeni ber shows that there will be an improve. ment in this regard, owing to the heavy exports that are being made in cotton. Our foreign shipments of cotton this year are nearly twice what they were in Sep tenmber of 19oi, being 677,773 bales. Already the agricultural products show an increase approximating $8,ooo,ooo for the month of September, the cotton ex ports alone amounting to $29,930,815. The foreign shipments of breadstuffs are valued at $22,ooo,ooo, showing an increase of $1,500,ooo over zpot. Offsetting the leaves the net gain on agricultural com modities at $8,ooo,0oo as noted above. The heavy cotton shipments always come in the fall and they continue for some time, bringing a great influx of money from abroad, which happily relieves the strain on the Eastern money markets Wvhich are reserves in order to move the heavy crops. This shows the importance of agri cultural pursuits in America. They are one of the mainstays of our great com mercial system. Their returns come at a season of the year when the most good is accomplished by them. Owing to the favorable national legislation of the domi nant party, the farmers of the United States are fortified against the aggres sions of foreign producers and for this reason they have found it to their benefit to give their support to the republican party. The agricultural states to a unit are republican. It is reasonably to be ex pected, therefore, that the agricultural districts of Montana will take their cue from this condition anl assist in rolling up a tremendous majority for the repub lican party at the coming election. VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. Mr. Heinle i: working a sell-out game. If he sold(put tomorrow, or the next day, or at any future time, how much of the swag would go to the men he has been using and abusing in his interest? He would throw down his expensive judges and lawyers so hard that it would make their teeth rattle. MacGinniss, Burdette O'Connor and all his helpers and heelers would get the back of the hand. Mrs. Brackett would be swept from his pay roll for he would have no pay roll. Sam Martin could whistle for that "debt of honor." Even the Chinese cook would be left chattering and lamenting. IT IS NOT GOOD FOR THE TOWN. Vote a republican ballot tomorrow to fill up the 1,000 vacant houses in Butte. A vote for the Heinze bunco ticket will be a vote to increase the number of vacant houses in Butte, Centerville and Walkerville. Continued litigation will, at the present rate of decreased popula tion, give Butte 2,000 vacant houes two years hence. Miners, contractors, car penters, mascns, painters, workingmen in all branches of trade, will be the severest sufferers. Vote the republican ticket I VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. Mr. Heinze's campaign of the state was directed against the interests of the republican party. In every county out side of Silver Bow he urged the election of democrats to the legislature. In Butte he has a mongrel ticket of his own and he asks the aid of republicans to elect it. No republican, be he a work ingman or a business man, can afford to allow himself to be led into such a trap. Vote the republican ticket. It is a vote for open mines, high wages and good times for this camp. VOTE THE REPUBLICAN TICKET. Mr. Heinze is the Mad Mullah of Mon tana. He flies the black flag. He stands for disorder, closed mines, empty houses and no work. No citizen can afford to stand with him in such a cause, the meaning and end of which is disas ter, bankruptcy and ruin.
