It fact. there is n liu ma in the legitlaisttuir e whot iflu tence has, bele sc o gret for go as that of Speaker WVhite. A fact lltich i iparticularly gratifying to the party in the niwte is the tohesive ness of tilth repubitlican tjority as Itliton. strated in these latter day, of thil sion. (On all party questiot. it votes a; a man, Its organization has bieen perfetid until there is not a flaw in its coitposition. In this manner its power is inicrtaseI and its effectivte ss made sure and certain. All in all the state of Montana and the ret publican party owes a debt of gratitude to the Eighth legislative ainserbly. PRIZEFIGHT PROMOTING The town is filled with deep and abiding disgust over the late prizetight fizzle. Whether with or without reason, tlhe public believes it was the victim of a put-up job, and it will require a good deal of work far removed from the hborder. land of suspicion to convince the people of Butte that they will ie justitied in parting with their money to witness an ether of these highly moral shows. Manager Sutton manifestly has the public with him in his proposition to rent iis theater for no more of these affairs unless the promoters sign a contract, suffi ciently guaranteed, to protect tle public against the petty swindle of raising prices. However, that is a matter that has about corrected itself.. Once impressed with the fact that it has been swiuenled, and "popular prices" would fail to draw a crowd to see one off these alleged sporting exhibitions, even if it is "pulled oli" under the patronage of city and County officials. A VALUABLE WORK No publication is issued regularly Iby any state in the union which is of moure practical value to the people of the comn snonwealth than the reports of the Mon. tana state bureau of agriculture, labor and industry. Covering the whole ratige of the subjects Included within the scope of the bureau, and including in addition a mass of most interesting and valuable statistical and general information con earning Montana, its resources and its Industries, the reports serve many pur. poses. One of these is edvertisitug the state among thoso who would seek homes in Montana or invest capital tlu rein. The eighth report of the tneat', '.itst front the pre-s, having been ltre..,r-J by J. A. Fur:;ueio, enuni.tii'uuionser , thie burtst, and L.. 1'. l.'edi(,t, his chict" clerk. To both of these gentlemen great credit is due for the excellence of the publication. It is a volume of 733 pages, splendidly and profusely illustrated by half-tone engravings and containing within its covers so many special articles and interesting features that to enumerate them would fill this column. It can be said with truth that while the reports which have preceded this have been exceptionally good, this certainly is the best yet issued by the bureau. CORRUIPTION IN CITIES (Cincinnati, if it has not been going Ibackward durimig the past to years, has not made nmaterial progress. All other (thin citits lhave advanced, especially Clevelaiil, twhich is nw the first city in the Ihtckeye state. The recent di.sas" trous hrte is a Irttious blow to Cincinati, from which it awill Ie a long tin' in re covering. I hat ( incinnati has not been going ahetal in wealth mlI influenee with other cities of the c.tunmtry is undo.lntelly due to the corrupt plitical conditions that have prevailed there for maniiy years. St. Louis is likely to be stricken with the sanm dry-rot from i like cause. It is said that Minneapolis alrealy feels tile hadl elltect upon its busine.s iilt-rests lihe cause of the notoriety lwhichl that city has received through the corruption that ran like ia foul stream through the mu nit ipal adhniiistrattun. lie lc 1usolln coolneye.l by thllse facts is an inpoti it one for other cities.

Wardle anl Janie, gave a splendid performance last night itt a sterlilng dramna, and that their ellorts were appreciated was fully attested by tile large auli'nlce present and the Ittnething more than goodwill manifested toward the actors and their company. Warde and James constitute a theatrical attraction which is exalctly the same in Itutte as it is in New York, Chicago or San Fran cisco, and in this it differs from a good many othters. Their preseltt season in Itutte will add to their popularity. The fact that George Cole was today awarded a term of twenty years in the penitentiary is an indication that holding up a train isn't such a mnad, mterry joke after all. A few sentences like this would do mutch toward discouraging the gentle art of train robbery. Mr. lloward will get his valentine next. THE PASSING THOUGHT. Meanwhile Mr. Castro continues to look wise. February is going out with antything but a spring-like finish. In celebrating the birthdays of the dead, let ius not overlook the lamtented editor of the Colllnnoner. The porte has a kick coming over the itlerefencee of the powers in Macedonia and lie wilt get it. Some (lay Mr. I.al'uitise will go east of the Mississippi and go against somebody who will not fix it. Now that the cowling congress is over the Indianapolis breweries will doubtless stop running three shifts. Roosevelt doubhtless wishes to get a shot at the Montana game before the bounty hunters have takecl all the scalps. As the twentieth round draws near it is evident to the eye that the Montana legis. lature hlas abanldolecd hitting in the clinches. Both sides are pretty well fagged Sut. Mr. Kipling's tilmely poemt on Cham berlain's efforts in South Africa brings to mind the fact that as a sphynx the British poet laureate has the original skinned a block. Thile extreme regularity with which the sheriff of Carbon county has been gather. ing in all the bad nmen who chance his way would indicate that all is clay which comlls to this Pott r. Thc cxtrlcle reularity with which nitr. deters trln out to be insane is a forecast of the day, whien the penitentiary will give way to the asylum. Not a Tillman has been put on the criminal records this month. Mr. McGovern is doubtless filling his sleeve with mirth, lie put his man out in four rounds. Mr. Knapp has doubtless c'langed the popular ditty so as to read 'I don't know why I choke them, but I do l" After all, there is no reason why Agg~I should not tour America on the lecture) platform. lie would need a press agent now to draw a corporal's guard.

The kaiser's rxtietne anxiety to, sho,v that Ihe is nt an atheist or a;it :igiostic is partly attribult:ble to the t.ott that things have not lbeen going his way in the rerichlstag lately, by any nn;nss, :and that the reichstac is strongly for I nrist. lliw great i I tiana of the lphesi:ns,!

Hlow funny it wouh. tie to see a proiesion in honor of the Ilibernian saint sidlestepping a tunch of cobras at every bushy point in the road! The lady from the Pacific coast who writes, as an indication of the number of shots fired in the Burlington holdup, that the clothes in her trunk, which stood in the baggage car and was riddledl, have 5o Itles in them, does not say how many times each garment perforated had beesn fuoldedl. Mr. Cleveland is in his way as mighty a hunter as the president, but you never hear of him planning expeditions after bear. lie goes out after smaller game. As their respective administrations would indicate, Mr. Cleveland spent his spare time in shooting ducks; Mr. RIosevelt has spent his in calling the coal barons and inviting the powers to go 'way back. The kaiser has publicly proclaimed his faith. Mr. Roosevelt makes no protesta tion of Christianity, but goes about his business like a Christian man, attending church regularly and abstainiug faithfully from that which is wrong. And when his enemy slaps him oil the cheek, he promptly turns him around and plants a hick where it will do the most good. AUCTION SALE $25,000 WEL±Y Ed.

AMUSEMENTS Wards and James. "Francesca da Rimini," with Warde and James as the leading exemplars of its merits, was presented last evening at the Broadway theater to an appreciative au dience. The revival of the renowned tragedy by the two eminent actors was a success, and the audience enthusiast ically encored many of the scenes. Bloth \Varde and James deserve the greatest cominsenldation for the clever way in which they rendered the roles of the htnnchback anl tihe jester. Both are suited admirably to their parts and their acting created the greatest admiration. The support, rendered by the lesser members of the Warde and James com ipany was exccellent. Norman lHackett and Teresa Maxwell deserve special mention. A1 lFranwesca Miss Maxwell is very ac ce.ptabklc and the work of Hackett as Paola St rong.
