LOW VALUE ON SPITE
The board of review of Deer L.odg~c
county practically set aside the clearly mta
lic;ous work of the socialist assessor of
Anacondla in their settlemenatt of property
valuations for purposes of taxation. They
properly determined that the s,pite of an
assessor adds nothing to the actual value
of real or personal property in that city.
Simplle justice to interests aln inlustri, s
which give life and prosperity to the city
is an achieventrnt worth the' elfrt of tihe
county conlmisasioaers, but they hlavae atc
comnplihed a more important result. lThey
Ihave discotura:ged the tendency of :allbi
tious politicians to attempt to settle tax
values by camplaion speeches and thronuh
appeals to prrjudlice, and at the same time
have rebuked a Ilagrant attempt to use offi
cial authority and action to s.ltisfy a per
sonal spite.
Because property bclongos to a corpora
tion which has large interests or lbecause
an ex amployec of a corporation succeeads in
getting himself elected to the office of as
sessor by demagogic appeals to class preju
dices, furnishes no goodl reason why such
property shoual ihl asurtdrlly valued or why
such curjwaration should be exorbitantly
taxedI.
'Tlhure is not a city in Montana which

PARIS TUNNEL DISASTER
The direct cause of the appalling cal::n
ity by which at least one hundred lists
'were de-troyed in a Paris railway tunnel
is described as a defective motor which
set fire to the train. Flagrant negligence
by the company operating the transpos
tation line is re.lponsible for the great
extent of the lus. Admitting that the
possihilities of fire and the inalequate
sleans of escape from the tunnel for the
occupants of two crowded trains coulit
nlot have Ilbeen forescen or provision made
for such an emergency, it is incompreheln
sille how a third train could have been
per :itted to go forward and crash into
the burning wreck excepting through
sheer incompetencly of management of ser
vice, accompanied by criminal carelessness
of emlployes.
With such an illustration of new dan
gers, subway lines as a solution of the
problem of tranportation facilities in
large cities are not likely to be accepted
as satisfactory by the public.
THE LAW'S DELAYS
The law presumes a man to be innlo
cent of crime until proven guilty; the
lawyers presume him to be ilnnoccut so
long as his Inuney holds out and there
is a shadow of technical proceeding left
to be exhausted. The most just courts
are inclined to procrastination. The pub
lic, whose interests are sometimes for
gotten in the proceedings, has a natural
prejudice against criminals, and this is
increased by the ordinary tactics of the
criminal lawyer and the consequent delays
in the operation of the law.
Ninety-nine out of every hundred citi
sens in Montana are opposed to mob
violence. Yet within recent months there
baa been a lynching in the state, and
balf a dozen occasions when others have
been seriously threatened. In no one of
them has there been any race prejudice
to offer as excuse, and in only one was
the offense of the character which affords
best cause for extreme indignation in
popular opinion. Many murders with
only one instance of punishment for the
crime prescribed by law, in a single
county during a long period of years, has
been offered recently as a reason why
prisoners were foolish to take the hazards
incident to breaking jail. There have
been conspicuous examples of unwise ex
ercise of the pardoning power.
Is it not time for the authorities
charged with the enforcement of the law
to consider the causes as well as the ef
iects of mob violence? It is the duty,
as well as the basis of successful business,
for the criminal lawyer to exhaust his
resources to secure the release of his
Oients. It is not the duty of the courts
to assist him in his enterprise, and the
release of criminals on technical grounds
when there is no doubt in either the
judicial or the public mind with respect
to their guilt affords the argument for
the gathering of mobs as well as the ex
cuse for its action.
AN EXPLANATION NEEDED
Why should Mr. Thomas F. Woodlock,
identified by the Boston organ of the
United Court and Copper company as the
"brilliant editorial writer of the Wall
Street Journal," quit Tammany, the Ten
derloin, and Wall street, and travel five
thousand miles to devote a day's time and
a page of newspaper space to considera
tion of politics, prostitution and gambling
in the metropolis of Montana?
From the caption line of "Unspeakable
Iluttc" to the libelous conclusion that "in

better apparent purpose th;an is mnani
fested in the attempt to convince some
body that the Ilcinie combine's morals
and methods are about the highest stand
ard in the city awl state.
The fact that this article was exten
sively andl expensively advertised in all
the Ilading New York papers in advance
of its publication is additional, though un
esecessary, evidence that "the brilliant
editorial writer" is merely a nIew instru
msent in the plotting. W\hatever the de

such inlluences are tcn.ficial to city or

WHY I'IIERE WAS NO PANIC
W \'.II street is contrite in mind just
now and ldisposed to acknowledge favors
from whatever source. For maIlly months
it has been the pleasure of the speiclative
lipropllt ts conifess that the business of
the country has so completely outgrown
Wall street influences as to atford assur
ancc.of stability iin view of chaos in the
center of speculation. Now Mlr. henry
Clews admits that the street itself has been
saved frmt disastrous panic only by the
influ nees which it has been the habit of
the street to charge with resplonsibility for
the troublels of the professional gamblers
and wool tat litters:
"Some of thei more powerful influenlces
may have Ibeen instrumntal in forcing the
decline; Ilcvcrtheless, as ont Friday, strong
parties have invariablly stepped into the
breach and stoppe iic. the downward mlove
iment when it became too threatening, thus
giving tholse in dilfficulties a fair chance
to realjust thensiiisc s. Without this
Ihpowerfil rect raint there is no doubt worse
enlitions might have followed, and to
this extent the street is indebted to the
commiunity -of-intere st idea, which in
tie,. past ihas cone in for more than its
share of abuse. The men who dominated
saEt aggregates of capital knew better than
any othels the great exlp:inini, in all sorts
of olhligations which cutlminatecd in ,io.;
they, too, knew better than any otihers that
the I.qgitimiate growth of business imper
ati'i 1 called for vast outlays of new capi
tal, which could not bIe deferred and which
iimust iln;iise a .train uponi the ioney
nmarket that would fall disastrousl upon
all Ipeculative cnotrnctions. No dnibt,
smith the tiresight .lihich their position
gsu. th, mi. they prtlepared in advance for
the event, now occurring, and which have
been anticilpated by till cxperienccd ob
servt rs. who wotnlereid not so much at the
appl,raclh of the day of reckoning as at its
long pistponenienit. It is fortunate that
mcn of such power did, in a measure, pre
pare to m.eet the:.e contingencies; for if
they aided the inevitable reaction they
alo, ciftectually prevented it froimt develop
ing a panic. Of course, this power has
been used by those who exercised it to
their own advantage; nevertheless, the
fiuancial co:mnunity is heavily indebted to
those v. ho put a stop to speculative ex
ceases and restrained the reaction which
they induced."
It was i.n unpleasant discovery for Wall
street to smake, but it is grateful to be
alive at priselnt. The practical demon
stration of the fact that the street can be
controllhed in the inlterest of legitint
busiiiess more easily than business canl be
controlled in thie interest of the street
ought to give caution to speculation as
well as better cfidence in trade circles.

UNION MEN AND MILITIAMEN
Menace to Organized Labor in Opposal
tion to National Guard.
[Detroit Free Press.]
Two working men in Terre Haute, Ind,
are out of employment because they did
what was expected of them as members of
the national guard. One of them reported
with his company to aid in the suppres
sion of the Evausville riots, and was dis
charged by his foretnat, who disposed of
the case by the sweeping assertion that
"Militiamen are no good anyhow." The
other one lost his place either because
his employers needed him when he was at
camp or because they did not want to an
tagonize the union men who hold thpt
members of their ortanizations cannot At
the same time be members of the militia.
It will be recalled that another such
arbitrary assumption followed the street
railway strike in Schenectady, N. Y. A
union expelled one of its men because he
had done his duty as a militiaman during
the trouble. They demanded his dis
charge by their employer, and upon being
refused they went out on a strike. Rather
than suffer the attendant loussahs eployer
allowed his financial interests to control
and the man who had met his sworn obli
gation as a defender of law and order was
forced to idleness until he could find some
sort of work of which the unions could
not deprive him.
It is not a time when organized labor
can afford to get into bad ways and bad
company. It is having serious internal
troubles for which the great majority of
its members are responsible only to the
extent that they have neglected the vigi
lant gua.tling of their highest interests.
The acts of treachery, blackmailing and
embezzlement brought home to walking
delegates in New York hurt a cause that
should bie kept clean and above suspicion.
'IThe virtual assumption of a few book
binders in Washington that their laws took
precedence of the laws of the United
St;atis was a moist astounding piece of im
pertinence. The driving out of those tur
bulent miners from Idaho Springs, illegal
as it was, shows that organized labor is
forcing a reaction in public sentiment that
is bound to retard the achievement of even
its worthiest motives.
The bad company agreeing with them
in opposition to the maintenance of the
militia are anarchists, rioters, assassins
and professional criminals. None of these
approve of an agency so potent in their
restraint and suppression. Not only have
the unions fallen in with disreputable as
sociations, but when they conic to think
of it, have made the most damaging con
fession possible. They have always and
invariahbly denied responsibility for the
imobs that destroyed life and property
during strike periods. They have charged
the crimes to tihe hoodlum element that
is always seeking an opportunity to in
dulge its passion for lawlessness, and on
several occasions the leaders have called
upon the unions to do all in their power
to suppress these deplorable outbreaks be
cause tending to injure the good name
and popularity of organized labor.
Nouw in states of the east, the west, the
north and the south, these same unions
have, in greater or less force, declared
against the one power that can be relied
upon for quick and effective action in
such emergencies. There is an admission
that these unions propose to use unlawful
force when they want to, and will have no
member ot theirs in an effective organiza
tion to aid in the preservation of life, lib
erty and safety when it interferes with
the plans and methods of unionism.
It might as well be understood first as,
last that no such attitude can win popular
support in this country, and that those
taking it, however sincere they may be,
are the most dangerous enemies of their
cause.

LAWLESSNESS IN HELENA
Capital City Following 4kut 'a Exampl
in Collecting From Gambling.
[ Helena Independent.]
The first "divvy" between the eity and
the violatol of the gambling law has been
:aale, and the city's share is $s,86, in the
f,,rm of forfeited bail bonds. This is the
result of the partnership for three months,
an average of a little more than $900oo
,1month. I he question Is, taking it from
a purely luusiness standpoint, is the rake.

iii the position of acknowledged perjurers?
I,'ce not some portion of this blood money

willing to wink at a violation of law, pro
%Ile,1 there is enough in it?
'I lie hypocrisy of the whole scheme for
g. ting money into the city treasury is
sih)wn by the fact that while all the men
who paid the money for the privilege of
i,,l;ating the law were arrested, the ar
r ,-t, were only technical, and that their
.w:nes have never appeared upon the police
blattecr.
l he Independent prints the list this
e,,rning, and the amounts paid. The
e(xcuse offered by advocates of this
Ila isce system is that it prevents
"gr-:afting" by imlividual officials of the
c.iv. Is it any more legitimate for the
qay to "graft" than a single officer of the
luni:icipality? Every individual in the

WHAT REPUBLICANS WILL DO
Timely Information for Curious Demo

I White Sulphur Springs Republican.]
Now, we have no hesitancy In saying
there is at the present time, as there always
is, a difference of opinion among the in
,haidual members of the republican party
.14 to policies and measures as well as to
nun to be looked upon as leaders. A
party not so constituted could not and
woulal not be a potent factor in the admin
litration of our national and state affairs.
'Ihat is why the party calls conventions so
that the people fresh from their respective
surroundings may get together and delib.
errate on what is best for the party to do;
aual after they have' so deliberated they
will stand by the policy there adopted.
'1 h:at is republicanism and that is the at
titude of the republican party in the state
today. Its membership will have its indi
vidual say on all questions that may arise
and they will be allowed to express their
preference as they should be. When the
pa;rty, however, gets together at its next
convention it will follow these rules:
It will adopt its policy in its platform.
It will select its leaders in the manner
heretofore done and it will unitedly support
both, regardless of what the democratic
press may say to the contrary.

PEOPLE WE MEET
P. B. Moss, banker and sheepman of
Billings, arrived in the city today and is a
guest of the Thornton. Mr. Moss is one of
the foremost business men of the metropo
lis of Eastern Montana and has been re
Q markably successful both as a banker and
a sheepman.
s He is interested In the new hotel being
a built at Billings which will be opened to
the public next fall. H. W. Rowley, who
will manage the hotel, accompanied Mr.
Moss to Butte. The hotel will be one of
a the finest in the state and up to date in
every particular.
Mr. Moss recently completed at Billings
an elegant residence which would be a
credit to any large Eastern city.
The friends of the Billings banker tell a
story on him of his changing his politics
from a democrat to a republican because he
saw indisputable evidences of the benefits
resulting to the wool industry from pro
tection.
Mr. Moss was raised by a democratic
father and naturally acquired his sire's
f political beliefs. During the dark days of
the Montana wool industry when Grover
r Cleveland's free trade ideas drove the
price of wool to bedrock Mr. Moss became
interested In the sheep business. Soon
Safterwards a republican president, the Is
e mented William McKinley, was elected and
the famous Dingley tariff bill enacted.
a The price of wool went up and ever since
the commodity has brought a good figure.
a The object lesson was too strong for Mr.
a Moss. He was a practical illustration of
the benefits of protection that all of the
free trade heresies in the world could not
counteract. lie changed his politics, his
friends say, and is today an avowed pro
tectionist.
I. D. O'Donnell of Billings, who is Inter
ested in the sheep business and has always
