Today the old 4 o in h.s survived ei,.hty seveni years, and it should he i tortil the while of an extrav agatlt generatitl who have colle to regard his economical habit as a rich joke to con side the fact that hlie owes both his ripe years and his rich esltate solely to his de votiott to that habit. It is a safe assertion that he has not i asted a day nor a dollar since lie started in life's struggle. It is not the ideal life to save every cent as if one's life dLependevd ulpon it and to nourish every minute of life as; iif illiuIs were involved in each intinitesiiual mleasure of time, but it furnishes a lasting object lesson to the young man i ho is dis plseud to lament a lack of present oppor. tunitiev to .iu'ilire great wealth, and to turn llis e n\ious eyes towards rvvolu. tin:iry schlees ill search of prwosrity. ]: very chitce l hich Sa:,e took advantait of, titr clerk. throuhl trade, to specula tion, is openl tio every youl:,i man ofI aver age intelligencce today, andi each i cen hancedi by superior adtuantages ill ctluca tion. improved facilities and increased vol umie of business. lThere is not a day la borer in Butte at the present time who is not earning more than Ruwsell Sage received wlih lie laid the foundation of his fortune in economy. 'Ilie sale frugal habits which preserved his pennies pre scribed the dlit uwhich has prteserved Iis health and life. lIe is Cxceptional in his time among his associates by virtue of oh. servance of laws as old anid irrevocable as any in the buok of nature or the plilos. ophy of thrift, rather than by reason of any freak of fortune or of mental equip ment. Instead of begrudging him his success and etndurance, every younig 11an Outllt to drink to the health and in the hope of an other year of long life to the old schemer. And by those who would follow in his footsteps the toast should be drank in water. SOCIALISM BY TAXATION The assessor of Anaconda was elected as a socialist, and he appears to have pro:eeded upon the assumptionu that the full object of his party ill the way of a divisionl of property can be accomplished under existing laws through an original schelte of assessment. lIe has more than doubled the assessed valuation of the property in that city and loaded practically all of the more thant $M,hoo,oou increase upon two companies. T'he facts and figures produced by the Anaconda Standard today ought to lie a valuable guide to citizens hi other con munities where there are soci:list candi dates for local offices. If his work is allowed to staand by the re ie wing officers, ndil is extemdidl to its logical end in the future, the assessor will lie assured a life tenure of olhice, !,because li will be the sole surviving citizenl of the town. lHe will have taxed the emIploying capital and productive itnlustries out of exitince, thuts idepriving the Ipolitical favorites, whom hl exemptllllt from taxatiotl, of l(means of livelihoodI and compelling their re mlov:l, making himself exclusive all su preme. From the showing male, it is aplparelt that the Anacondla asessor has small re gard for the sisterhoo, l of women, how ever great his devotion to the brotherhood of tInan. St. Ann's hospital, a ('atholic in stitutiton of the character signified by its name; and heretotfore exempt tilner state laws, is listed for a heavy tax, and the samei Is true of the spletndid free Illbrary (ctahli held by the generous betcvolence of Mrs. Hearst. Ignorance, higotry and cupidity certainly shouldb Ie sat is.id with such exploits in efforts to punlislh the rich. Thle fact that the full weight of the inijury, sought to be iinlicted upont tIhose whoi are genterous ill pros pe'rity., Iust fall Iupon the poor and lneedy ill the end is of no moment to( the assessor. The theory of hit scheme of government ltdoesn. t eo (ntelat ay pooill lr nllll needtly in its final accomplishment. There will be InI, accildenlts alnd nIo sickness and no nted of hlslpital. Iverly tperson will have time to write his own Ibooks and free libraries w ill be out of fashion. It will all be very lovely, and everybldy will find happiniess in the halppiness of his brother and in the knowledglie that the pastor of tlthe opposIition church will have to hel'lp hsaw the woolI fotr our Sunday nchld. Naturally lthere will be somle in collenienc, in atdjuistiIng everything to tmee:t the new cotilitions, butl eventually the Antaconda ase.s<snor will either ihe tIhe' hos of the Anacondla sinmelt.er or else there w ill not be any smelters. PHILISTINE AT SALI' LAKE Fra Ilbbiard, alias the Squash, has been doing Salt Lake (City. lie remiainedI, in pursuit of his fixed haitsL , Ilig enotugh to avoid incurring expense. During his stay hlis du.tile mindtl was inlhented with im pretsioins as thick as insects on a pilgrim Indiant. and lie went Iaay to write a his tory of the town and its inhabitants with variations ill one column and a foot note. Whereat there is wrath amotng the deni r .in. of the saintly city, and (;ondwin's Weekly is moved to the following philo solphical tconcluIsions: "It woulid le the least hit :lnnoying to thlse who have been here a good while and who know the facts, to read tie re :Ulped falslboIds of the oI, days, and look upon the pictures which gifted men aitd women can paint when properly stuflfed for the work, if we are not iccustomed to such exhibitions. As it is, they are tnit wortlh minding, except so far as they throw dirt uplon the A tericatl home, dis cunt the allegi:ancte Iue to native land and by indirection stam;p uplin I h, re ligion and morality." The American home and native land will continuet to exist, and religion and tnar;il ity shall rise again. Nor will the sore l.iots of Salt Iake City hurt f r long. Ilutte speaks with authority of Irvivin, expterileice, and priutcers assturan.ce of her robti'st sympathy to all the plural sisters dtwtI1 the Short T.ine. M\eant htile it is conithh ntly expected that ( iodw i's W\eekly a ill make becoming amends fr recent reproduction of a similar treatment of Blutte and her people with appal:irent approval and maniifest joy. On)te degen .rate liar was the atuthor of lbath historical ttl: fortmat ions. Now that everybody knows exactly what has causied the trouble in Wall street, of course, it never will happen atain. Mr. Parry, the hea:t of the Manufa~c turers' asociatitn, talks like a titan who wouol not hesitate to goi out in the dark to look for trouble. It took lthe whisky trust quite a while to Itarn that prtihiitiion dotesnt't prohibit. 'Thl story that government authorities are workitg secretly on a design for ain airshilp which works stccessfully requires sottethiig inorte than a newspaper picture of the device to conufirm it. \\'ill the lahor unions ever get strong enntuh to limlit saloons to an eight hour day and; close themit Saturday afternoons and Stlldys ? Thle discovery of nlew and more valu able metals causes no appreciable falling off il the numhi r of people who are w ill ing ti spend their time and energies search ing for gold. SEvaen if Mayor 'Mullins could convince the dozen obstinate aldermen, he coull Iot ch-an;t:e the laws which prescribe the du ties of his office. t In time the citizens of svery counlty in Montana will be ready to admit that strife lwhich haimpers cnterplrise dues not help business, and that capital does not seek investment whlire the title to property is i1 subject to the decisions of unlit or cor e rupted judges. a 'lThre alppears to e somne doubt whether d the pupuli-ts who met at Denver have dc S sorted Mr. Bryan or are merely Ipoin'ting n the way for him to save his beloved coun e try front the danger of having the demuc y racy elect sotie other Imian to the presi e denicy. Ie After six weeks with faking matches a the authorities of Salt lake announce their i- inteution of arresting all prizefighters as vagrants. Alaska will soon be the ody :part of Atnerti an territory where the ell miate is not too warm for the ring graft '1 he ful i,%tfu ,t part of it is that chantatl qta:t soci.ties in the North pay len Till man fIr that sort of gibberish. hltte h:s he'r pvssiinists, but none of thiti h;as 1,u'n found to predict that the gr:s, will be growing in the streets of the to ,n very soon. The failure of the Connecticut tobacco c'rop literally will knock the stuffing out of the It:avana cigars which the tobacco trust peddtles. Kid Curry could not Ie more completely lost sight of if he had been suggested for vice president by the lennessee authorities when they turnel him iloose. We have nlduring confidence that the eca:r of Iusbia will be fully convinced in time that the rights df the mikado are not col.ined tu comic opera. l'here is abundant r:as.on to anticipate that Jllge Parker's desire to remain upon the bench will be ratified by the national democlracy. AGES OF THE SENATORS Fifteen of Them Have Passed the Allotted Life of Man. [New York Commercial.1 If they are all living when the president calls congresa together in extra session Novelmber 9--which every one seems to think is his intention-fifteen of the sena tors will have passed the seventieth mile stone. With only a single exception they are all enjoying remarkably good health. (;General Ilawley of Connecticut, chair man of the military affairs committee, has been on the sick list for nearly a year, and it is doubtful if he ever again will lie able to resume his duties. In age, the Alabama senators head the list. (;eiu:ra;l Pettus was 8a on the 6th of July and General Morgan was 79 on the a2th of June. Both General Hawley and his colleague, Senator Platt, are near ing 79. General hate of Tennessee will be 79 on the 7th of October. lie is still a spry old gentleman, is usually up to his cars in work. and has let it be known that, in spite of his years and lengthy service, he is a canditate for still another term. Senator Frye of Maine, presiding ofR cer of the senate, will be 72 on Septem ber 2. lie probably looks younger than any of the statesmen born about the same time. Senator Cullom of Illinois is in his seventy-lifth year. lie has the hardest sort of committee work to perform, and thin anti wiry as he is it seems to agree with himn, for he appears never so happy as when busy. Mr. Hoar is in his 75th year. The ages of the other more ven erable senators follow: Stewart of Ne vania. 76; Allison of Iowa, 74; Gibson of ,montana, 73; Proctor of Vermont, 7a; Platt of New York, 70, and Quay of Penn .) lVania, 7o. Senator l)epew was 69 last April, and Senator Cockrell will he 69 on Octoler . ('Cockrell is the democratic wheel-horse. lie does more hard work and has more drudlgery thlian ally five men put ogether on his side of the chalmber. Gorman of \laryland, of course, will next session again assume the minority leadership on the floor, having last spring been elected chairman of the democratic caucus. He is only 6.1 years old. lle has had a bene ficial rest for several years, and word comes from across the ocean that he has bIeen still farther improved by his visit to Great Britain. Kind Words for "Mother Jones." [Iloston Ilerald.] It is a pity that Mother Jones should have gone to (Oyster Bay and not seen the president after all. (If course, the president's time for seeing people, is limlited, am lie cannot see everybody that calls. But he has admitted less im portant personages to) an audience. Mother Jones is a kindly, big hearted soul, ano has done no little good in her life. Al though many of her ideas on public ques tiols are pretty crude, she has some soundll sense on such matters nevertheless, anI has more or less influence with the laboring classes. l'robably she has an erroneous conception of the president's powers in the matter she desires to bring to his attention. But child labor is one of the great evils of the age in some parts of this country-includling Pennsylvania, as well as tile regions south of Mason and Dixon's line-anid the president, who also has a big and kindly heart, and many little ones of 'his own, would surely be sympathetic on that question.

MONTANA LEADING IN UTAH COLLEGE STUDENTS FROM TREASURE STATE CARRY OFF HONORS AT ALL HALLOWS INSTITUTION. EXCELLENT RECORD IS MADE Rev. Father Murphy, Here From Salt Lake, Talks of the Work Being Done. .ontana boys have a reputation for in t lligectce. Results in the examinations at All Ilallows college in Salt Lake this yea:r go far to prove the boys worthy of their reputation. All lfallows college is the leading Cath ,,lic educational institution in the Middle \\ elt, drawing its students from all of the ilnter mountain states. Montana always has contributed a fair ,h:ire of pupils to the school, and during the last year the records of the boys from the Treasure State have been a credit to the community from which they came. 'The scientific gold medal of the year w:as awarded to Henry G. Wiggenstein of ,ranite, who took the degree bachelor of .ienctr. Peter J. O'Neill of Butte was thI. winner of the sophomore gold medal. J. Rltynold Thill and Raymond Kelley of (;reat Falls took the degree bachelor ,,f science. John J. Hayes and Samuel 1. Ford of (Great Falls, master of accounts, .11,i James J. Martin of Butte, master of Makes Good Record. This is a record for the year which Mon t;:ta need not blush for, it is claimed. :ather Murphy, S. M., vice president of the institution, has been in Butte for a week or so on a visit. lie expects to re* tolrn to Salt Lake Wednesday. Speaking of the progress of the institution he said: "There are a number of important im cprovemnent.. going on in the college. The nmw $roo,ooo building is now complete a:ml will be ready to receive students when the school opens in the fall. This building h;,s a limited number of private rooms for the use of the older students. New Chapel Is Pretty. "A new chapel has been erected. It is particularly artistic, being built in the .Romanesque style. "Last year the graduating exercises were held in the Mormon Tabernacle, which has a seating capacity of io,ooo peo lile. An especially brilliant program was arranged and the affair elicited much comment front the daily press. "O)f course, the fact that the exercises were held in the Tabernacle lent a greater interest to them. The Mormon church is very friendly to our institution and it was through the courtesy of the first presi dlency of that church that we were en abled to make use of the Temple." PEOPLE WE MEET The best advertisement the Yellowstone national park ever had was the visit of President Roosevelt last spring when he saw a large part of wonderland on snow shoes and by enduring various forms of privations. It was predicted at the time that the chief executive was going to give the park the best "ad" it ever had. Subsequent events have justified this. Charles S. Fee, general passenger agent of the Northern Pacific, who arrived here today from St. Paul, said that the Eastern agents of the company never re ported so many inquiries about the park as this season. 'This indicates pretty clearly that the presient's visit was a good thing for the park as well as for him," said Mr. Fee at the Northern Pacific office. 'Park travel is good this year, but we expect it will be even better next year," lhe resumed. "We have already contracted i,) take care of about z,ooo people during o904, by far the largest amount ever con tracted for this far ahead. Many notable improvements are being made in the park. "The hotel at Yellowstone lake is being rebuilt and remodeled upon an elaborate Scale, making it almost a new structure, while a large new hotel is being built at the I'pper Geyser basin and will be ready next year. This will be one of the most mod ern and up-to-date hotels in the West. I have seen the plans furnished by a San Francisco architect and admire them very much." Mr. Fee said the railroad company is putting up a depot at Gardiner, built of Iugs to conform to the style of the big arch being built nearby at the entrance to the park, which was dedicated by the president. 'Travel on the railroads generally in the N\,rthwest appears to be about on the aver ace. The farmers in Minnesota and the I)akotas are busy with theircrops. The ·Ia.,n has been backward, but normal lwlils of grain are expected. Mr. Fee expects to go to Helena tonight and continue his journey to the coast to marrow. Mrs. WV. J. Alexander and Mrs. M. M. Miller are visiting their parents, Rev. and Mrs. S. C. Blackiston. Mrs. Bilackiston and her daughter, Mar a:ret, have returned from a Southern iit of several months duration. Mrs. Ablbie Turner has returned from a two week's visit on South Boulder. Deputy Sheriff Wyman has gone to Se.attle on business. 'T. J. Porter, the Miles City attorney, :.me to Butte yesterday.
