FACTS TO KEEP IN MIND
\\ V y c,,.j it:re N itl r',pect to the pilr
pos thi. M:.ayr. ,p spe'titctlar raid upont
w1,:. n, including sonime reputed to be re
al'ectal,le in character, and certainly I it
Ii.,re collnspicuous otieltders agailnst statll
tndt national laws, or even city ordinances
ti.:n himself. It may have 'been his idea
to follow the intent of the commendable
iti,,lution of the alderinen to the best of
ili ability. luint that is improbable. lie
"silt ra.soiably sup. ise that his man
aI~r of enforcing some law would tend to
i-aske law enforcemelnt unpopular aind his
administration as a whole correspondingly
apohpular. Posibly the example given was
designed to make it easier for the official
graflters to collect tribute from vice and
critmi in future. I'erhaps his tnotiut was
that lie might raise furore and dust enough
to detract I,Ul,ic attention from his own
official shortcominigs and wrongdoings.
'I hose facts are plain and not to be lost
sight of in any intelligenlt consideration of
the public interests: The Mayor has
openly and persistently neglected his of.
ficial duties, lie has protected crime for
a consideration unlawfully collected. lIe
has obstructed the conduct of the proper
business of the city by the city council,
by arrogant exercise of rights not con
ferred upon himn by law. And if lie :s
qualified to hold the office pf Mayor of
Butte, then by his own testimony he ap
pears as a perjurer under thdlfederal'laws
in his efforts to secure title' to fandp in
Idaho. At no time has lie nianifested, the
single purpose to perform tIle duties of
the office with respect to thei laws, to his
official oath and to the public interests.
There is no apparent reason for expecta
tion that he will do so in future. lie is
gisinii this city an administration of law
lessness under the pretense of government,
and every decent interest imaginable will
be promoted by having an end to it,
INTEREST IN IRRIGATION
New interest in the irrigation congress
to he held at Ogden next month has been
created by liberal prizes offered by Presi
dent Clark and others for the best ex
hibits of fruits and grains grown within
what is known as the arid region. These
exhibits will stimulate the local individual
interest essential to insure a large gather
ingt. and at the same time will furnish the
hnost convincing arguments with which to
culirt the people of other sections of the
country inl support of irrigation measures
and ecterprise. The limitation of exhibits
to those groswn oil irrilatted land is sui.
perfltious, hecauset i.o better fruits and
grains are priiluca.d ia:ywhecre in the coun
try. and open competition night success
fully advertise the fact swithout danger
.of losing the prises to the tc'ritory for the
developlmlent of which they itre rocltred.
Suimethiig of the wide scope of the
work of the congress, and of its import
ance to the West, is shown in the fnl
lowing comments on proposed features by
the Salt Lake Tribune:
"President Roosevelt's continued active
interest in the congress is a guaranltec that
its deliberations, conclusions and declara
tions will have weight with the alminis
tration, and his determination to request
the presence of a caninet officer is taken
to mean that lie wants to give all piossible
countenance and support to the congress.
"The presence of Chief Ilydrographer
Newell at the congress is assured by his
letter, and his active particilatiition ill his
suggested chairmanship of the srctioll of
the program devoted to the work and
progress of the govertament in atid of irri
gation will be must welcome. lie is the
practical atllan tio whom all must look for
the real work to he done. I is further
sunggestions of persons to le cnlledl ,in fr
ialpers, anI the subjects of those papers
are both nppropri:ate and exce.llent in
thmiancelvcs. The partion or the proceed
ings that Mr. Newell may lhave chargei of
is cert;in to he hath well donie, and to
have tile utmost pos~ible prnctical results.
"The atterlnance of oither ofLicialt whoi
have to) do with weather conditions :lnl
crops, and their active co-operation, is
assured. l)r. Wiley's promised lpaper on
the sugar beet will Ire an attraction, and
the representation promirsed frott the
bureau of forestry will lit very wetlcme.
"Mr. Maxwell, chairmnn of the Na
tional Irrigation association, promiises en
thuiastic support. anld ;itteutance. with a
c:lrload of representatives of thie great
E;Iastern daily newspalpers."
It will Ibe wise e tterprise to insure an

Molnxtana i, likely VI gain sno e residenls
which she dhes int need from the state
of \VWashington. The supreme court at
a ilymtnpia yesterdlay decided the law to he
C olstitutional which makes g:imbling a
flb,ly in that ,tate. Witl a view to giv
ill the statute tthrugh t..t, a Sipokatne
,h bler plehaded guilty to conductintg a
winor game of chance and was sentenced by
the ,li-trict court to serve a year in the
penlitentiary. The sutpremte Court has or
dered the sentence to he carried out,
which insures his stay in the s' ' for
a time, but miakes it certain th.a. ,ther
mten of his line of -business will seek a

severely pIunished.
While ganmling is not yet legitimitedl
in Montana, the amendment to the laws
making it a mis.,e.tanor instead of a
felony was a step in that direction which,
considered in connection with the tolera
tion and even oflicial protection of the
industry inl some commnuities of the state,
cannot t fail to be recognized as an invita
tionll t more genlerotus hospitality by gentle
men of the cloth who are prompted to
mlove by vigorous prosecution and
stringent laws elsewhere. As happened
with prize -fighting, it may lie found that
the Montanla welcome is too copious and
not quite specific enlough to meet all
nemergenlcies.
Mr. I hinze in the last numbcer of his
Unlited Court and Colpper Company
journal renews his attacks upon thie sol
vency of Mrs. )Daly's estate. The only
applarent menace to to te I)aly estate is
the danger commlllonl to all estates in Monll
tana that some part of it may be ab
stracted by the United Court and Copper
CtOlpany through tihe instrumentality of
dissolute or dishonest judges elected or
controlled in that purpose.
When one takes time to think of all the
different kinds of microbes and germs and
epidemicd reeding things there are that
imperil human life nowadays, one wonders
that there is a doctor left alive to warn
his fellow men of their dangers-and to
invent new ones.
From the best information available,
it looks as though Mr. Schwab fell and

Mayor Mullins has changed his mind

The valued Washington Star errs in as
suming that J. Hamilton Lewis, Honor.

In the matter of the postal department

LIBERTY UNDER THE LAW
The Birthright of Every American Citizen
Subject to No Other Interests.
f l)cnver R(eputlican.]
Neither labor nor capital can prosper in
idleness. Ihth must he employed to earn
profits, and anything that hinders the ac
tive employmlent of either is harmful alike
to hoth, because it lessons opportunity.
These are fundamental facts that should
have great influence in the avoidance of
obstructions designed to iluck the wheels
ol industry anid enterprise.
Strikes and lockouts are harmful alike
to lalbor anl capital. blecause they deprive
.both of their earning capacity, and they
shloull never le invoked it any rational
wa;y of settling diftlerences between enl
pliyrs anid employes can lie found.
\\l hen they do happen, however, they
should not lhe permnitted under any cir
cumlltances to interfere with public peace
alI ,god order. It is the duty of the con
stitllted authorities at all times to pro
tect individuals, whether they be laborcrs
or capitalists, in their right to go about
their business without fear or unlawful
molestation.
The present police ntlthorities of ),. a
ver deserve the highest credit and co -
nmendation for their determined enfor
llent of this principle in the lfahor troubles
which have been unwisely forced upon
sien of our leading industries by profes
sional agitators fromn Idaho and Montana
recently, andl the good exaiImple thus set
sho.uld not lie wasted on the peace of
fivcrs of other places.
I.iberty within the bounds of law is the
birthright of every American citizen.
Everybody who wants to employ his cap
it:al or his skill and strength in any legiti
mate iccupation is entitled to the fullest
Irotection of the law in. so doing, and no
inlividual or organization should be per
mitted to interfere ithll himt in the exer
cisc of that right.
Unadulterated Missouri Democracy.
ISt. I.nuis I;lobe )elmocrat.J
"This is a democratic state," says a
ali.souri paper, "and it will remain demo
'cratic until the last reverberation of G(a
briel's horn echoes and dlis away in her dis
tant hills." This is the favorite Bourbon
attitndc: Missouri is to be eternally dem
ocratic. hence argument is useless, expos
ure futile and boodling immaterial.
Though corruption be piled mountain high,
.lMissouri must forever remain democratic.
A Missouri Bourbon has no peer except
among the mummies of Egypt or in the os
sified man of a sideshow.
Demands of Common Decency.
[)illon Tribune.]
Judge Ilarney still dispenses justice at
the old stand in spite of the fact that
the .upreme court of the state found
strong reasons for believing that his de
cision in the important Minnie Healy
case was influenced by bribefy. No one
who has followed the evidence believes
that Judge llarney is a fit man to dis
pense justice or maintain respect for
Montana's judiciary. Common decency
demands his resignation.
Cardinal's Tribute to Yellow Journalism.
[Sanl Francisco Call.]
Perhaps the completest summary of the
despicable methods of the yellow journals
of the United States ever given was pro
Imulgated by Cardinal Gibbons, who, on
entering the great conclave at Rome au
thorized the Associated Press to deny any
purported interview with him, at any time,
on any subject, with any person after he
entered Rome. This blow certainly ought
to silence the saffron sheets.
One Good Feature.

A good feature about radium as a cure
for cancer is that no druggist has any
thing "just as good."
Clergymen and Politicians.
[Chicago News.]
The average clergyman knows as much
about politics as the average politician

JUST BE GLAD.
Oh, heart of mine, we shouldn't
Worry sot
What we missed of calm we couldn't
iHave, you knowl
What we've met of stormy pain,
We can better meet again,
If it blowl
For we know not every morrow,
C'an be sad;
So, forgetting all the sorrow
We have had.
Let us fold away our fears.
And put by our foolish. tears.

CLEAR SURPLUS OF SCRUPLES
Statesmen Who Argue With Bribery
Open the boor to Suspioion.
[New York Times.]
The act of Congressman Baker in re
turning the annual pass sent him by the
li:ltimore & Ohio railroad would have
heen a great deal more impressive if he
had not required a thousand words, more
tr less, in which to define hbi position.
I.ikc the l'layer Queen in "Hamlet," he
'Iith protest too much, me thinks." To
,.i line the pass was eminently proper.
'I, have done so on the grounds that to
.t ,rler and accept it involved a violation
of the Inter-State Commerce act of s8.7,
,s amended, and that self-respect did not
I"rmit him to receive valuable favors for
v, hich lie could render no equivalent ser
vicr. To argue the matter, as a sermon

tencies which are in themselves unimport
i;,t, because the letter reviewed was prob
:,,ly written by a clerk according to his
lIght and under general instructions, was
ti, weaken the moral force of his posi
tion and make his act appear as taking
:i,·'antage of an opportunity'to advertise
himself and make political capital out of
a code of official ethics which conforms
t, the statutes.
Many public men make the mistake of
tlKing a charge of birdshot where what is

MUNSEY'S PAPER FAILURE
Easier to Lecture on Journalism Than
to Practice It Successfully.
[Detroit Free Press.]
The New York Daily fews is to be
hII at auction August at. Interest
i this announcement centers about
i'e fact that the principal stockholder in
t[II Daily News is Frank A. Munsey, the
, ,gaine publisher. There was a great
t l:ri.sh of trumpets when Mr. Munsey
' :,itned possession of the Daily News
tIi he act out to show New York how a
I ul,iaper ought to be edited. The task
.,, mted so trivial that lie straightway
fnI,,,ht the Washington Times, and sub
t .lntly acquired possession of the Bos
tiin Journal. Mr. Munsey's operations
St:I, so deep an impression on the faculty
SYale university that he was invited to
t.Iliver a course of lectures on "Journal
t.,i" to the students, notwithstanding the
i.ct that ,Mr. Munscy had not acquired
ffc.h knowledge about journalism himself.
I h,- Daily News has not been a success,
;,.,I none of Mr. Munsey's other newspa
IpL.r ventures has proved profitable. 'Mr.
\ltnsey made a great commercial success
,-lit of Munsey's Magazine. It was the pio
neer io-cent magazine, and was well pritlt

Karageorgevitch in English Eyes.
[Contemporary Review.]
The situation of Karageorgevitch is,
imoraly speaking, as bad as it can be. and
its legality is more than doubtful. lie is
the receiver of stolen goods. If he had
no fore-knowledge of a massacre, he knew
of the conspiracy, and whether he did or
;ot, he is an accomplice after the fact.
- The faction that brought hint back had
b., power to reinstate, by proclamation or
otherwise. the radical i.e.. nationalist and
Russophilet skuptschina which Alexander
had an unquestionable right to dissolve.
It is true that he tired out the patience
of the Belgrade politicians and the cafe
bunting officers by his frequent changes
of the constitution, and that whenever he
mlae an alteration he talked like a despot.
I'ople generally sooner forget tyrannical
acts than despotic words.
Myths of the Stock Market.
i New York Evening Post.]
\Wall street, we are told, is, above all
thi ngs, hardheaded. There calculation
'rles, and leaves no place for sentimen
talismn, much less for superstition. But
o, gross a "vulgar error" is the foregoing
that it requires the attention of a new Sir
I homas Browne. Far from being skeptical
and self-sufficient, Wall street is a very
nIet of peculiar superstitions. It has a
truly imediaval tendency to explain all
phenomena, not as workings of natural
law, but as the result of the direct inter
position of vague personalities. In good
tines this mythology is generally mono
thelistic, presupposing the beneficent work
ing of a single deity; In bad times it Is
poltheistic, imagining the maleficent ac
tivities of a host of diabolical powers.
