THE NEED OF NEW LAW The chief industry of Montana is para lyzed, and near a score of thousands of wage earners are suffering idleness, be cause the law of the state as interpreted by the highest court is inadequate to pro vide the remedy for injustice alnd the se. curity to persons and property assured by the constitution of the state. Without such a condition in the affairs of state government, there couldl le no such condition as now exists in the indus trial affairs of the state. It is clearly a waste of time to search for lmleans to change the effect while Iutintaininitg t he cause. Every resource and all the ability which the great corporation affected could enlist during half a dozen1 years thas lbeen exhausted in that purpose without success. A colmmittee composed of men most dis tinguished and experienced int the conduct of both business and governmenllt, cllosen with respect to the fact that their great est interests in the controversy are re lated to its early settlement, have vainly endeavored to discover some other than a legal remedy. In the consideration of the duty of the state and its agencies under such circumn stances, it makes no difference which party to the contentio0n in court may have the Oiter dirgttument, or if both are in the wrong. In either or in any event each is entitled to justice in the courts--in im partial courts, without sale, denial or delay. That is the constitutional guarantee. The supreme court has recognized this constitu tional right with the explanation that the legislature has failed to provide the law necessary to establish it in certain cases. Such a condition makes the conduct of legitimate business impossible wiihin the state of Montana whenever it may le at tacked in biased or corrupt courts by un. scrupulous rivals. Today it is the Amal gamated Copper company which stands ,s an outlaw in tile state and denied the right to operate its properties by the dictum of a notoriously one-sided court, at the inlstance of a complainant who pIur chased a trilling holding of stock and who has neither sulffered injury nor is in dan ger of injury to any honest interest ac cordin4g to the testimony in his owtn be half. Tomorrow it mtay be solme other company that may lie made the victim of this species of justice uitdcr the laws and piractice of Montana. As no iuetmber of a plague-stricken co uniiUtlllity is itlilttute from colntagion, so Ino citizen is safe in that state which permits the practice of wrong in the name if justice and neglects to provide for the enforcement of its con stitutional law. The wags-earncrs and business men who have petitioned the governor to convene the k gislature have not asked for special legislation to meet special cases, nor for the extension of special privileges to any interest. The Amalgamated Colpper coin. painy is not calling for anything of the sort. The citizens petitionl that the leg islature shall be called to performn the duties which the supreme court has de clared have been heretofore nteglected by that body, to give force to the plain mean ing of the constitution. Of course they are prompted to ask for immediate action because immnediate action is imperative to relieve the state from the deplorable busi ness stagnation which has followed as a result of the absence of laws to insure fair trials in honest and impartial courts. That citizen who would deny a fair trial to any person or of any cause be fcre a judge of unquestioned fairness and honesty is an enemy to the state as well as to the business prosperity of the state. No one has asked for anytriing more from a special session of the legislature than law to provide for this. The intimation that Iteinze adherents have assurances that the governor of the state will deny even this much to the public, in the face of the present emergency, is an insult alike to his intelligence and his integrity. TREASURE STATE RECORD So great is the annual production of copper in Montana that many people lose sight of the fact that this state also is a producer on a large scale of the more precious metals. When one talks about Montana as a mining state he tells about the millions of pounds of the red metal that come from Butte mines every year, and he dilates upon the fact that from a little area of ground in this county only a trifle more than two square miles in surface extent comes nearly one-quarter of the world's supply of copper, but he forgets that gold and silver come forth from Montana in enormous quantities, The Associated Press dispatches today carry the estimate of the director of the mint on the approximate distribution by producing states and territories of silver and gold for the calendar year 9on2. This shows that Montana ranks second in the production of silver and fifth in the pro duction of gold, facts that will ,be sur prising to that great portion of the pulb lic which does not keelp postel on miineral statistics. The total silver produ-tion of the United States fir the year nlentioned was $7o, 621t,3J,5--coinage vtalue--of which Mon tann's proilucti ii, scirnm)ll in the lilt, was $17.1 2).07.

THE MAYOR CONFESSES i1 The refusal of the mayor to testify iI before the council oticiitl c ee investigating ii tile rconduct of city lusiness C:Iannot II e I highly regarded cven by the beneliciary sutpporterus of ar.

Ilis spectacular move meI t to bring gambling and prostitutiotn to (an abrupt and complete end isa Iutte is at least an affectation of power a well as authority to enforce the laws completely whenever lie has the mind to do so. 'IThere is no doubt that public gambling can be abolished. It is probablle that the other vices can be restricted within a small limit of territory and restrained in their demoralizing influences. Certainly the partnership between the taxpayers of Butte and the managers of these forms of lawlessness can be permanently dis solved, Mayor Mullins makes it clear f that he is convinced of all that, if there e is any sincerity of purpose whatever in is his recent change of policy. re So much the council committee has at accomplished, and it makes no sort of it dilference whatever so far as the public al is conceftied whethcr Mayor Mullins has r, a good or bad opinion of the committee, n or whether he offers his evidence before ty the committee or througlh the newspapers. in ----- __.- - or There should be no question in any Ce mind respecting what Mr. IHeinze wants. th He wants all he can get by hook or s, crook.

LABOR PARTIES DOWN SOUTH Organization for Independent Political Action Fatal to Unionism. (MonigoInery (A.la,) Advertiser.1 d An elt'ort to organize laboring imen into a political party will be the beginning of the endl of union labor in Alabama. Those who are protmoting or etlorsing this miov'ement should retteintler the Fartmers' t alliance and take warning by it. To organize for nutual industrial and social benefit was a commendabllle object and if the farmers had been content with that object, llttch good to them might have ° been the result; but when their organiza tion was turned into a political p:rty with the avowed object of controlling the poli- I tics an:d ofices of Alabamta, its finish was assured and its lpower for good was at an t end. A like fate is loundlltl to follow a:l effort to degrade labor by snaking it a political organization and trying to force thIe tiem-t bers to vote as the labor leaders dictate. It will take froml laborilg l itel the last vestige of political iltldelpctlence and mlake of themn tools to build up it machine for the advancemelnt of designing ;and aIti - bitious letaders. If the working ment think this tmoivement is for their brinelit, they are saily mtistaken, as they are bound to learn, sooner or later. It is imtpossible for such anl organlliationl to control the state, but it is not impossilble for nitte of the leatders of the mnovct.ntt to hoist themtselves into oflice. The Inttlter who can thlus le elected is but a drop in the bucket corlmpared to the mlasses of work intg nt1. They will not be ablIle to control legislation ., to belnefit thle masses in anly respect., but they will gratify their own atlltbitiots and advance their own interests at tile expense of real working 'lterte will always hie political parties in Alabamla and it is a, mnich the duty of the mecha;nic to vote his own choice as it is for the prlof',sional atan to do so. No mttan who believes in the doctrines or the policics of eithler tlte dlemocratic or repullican party shtould allow any secret organizationl to dictate to him or inifluence his vote. When laboring men unlite them ;elves into a ptarty to promote their po litical welfare, as this call declares, they voluntarily pIrovokc antagonism on tlhe part of all other callings or professions an cllt th!lemselves Iloose froit the sympl)a thy antd assistanlce of all other petople of the state. If tile wage-earners can advance their social and indu:trial interests by uniting and workitng together with full knowledge and recognitionl of the rights io all others, they should do so, but to organize themsrlv'es into a political party will be fatal to them.

"DIXIE'S" WORDS Why It Has Been Necessary to Make Changes. a. [ Florence Times.] . The Montgomery Advertiser says it has "no1 sympathy" for the movement of the United I)aughters of the Confederacy to change the words of the famous Southern song, Dixie. It thinks that the song as h sung way lack in the '6os by the boys inl gray should he good enough for their chil dren. We are sorry to see the old grand mothellr take this position. Could the old lady really have looked into the matter seriously ? Does she not know that even during the period of the war other words It than the originals by Emmet were sung by the Confederate soldiers, and that for 40o a years the silent protest against the original darkey song has given rise to a score of " other velsions with the view of getting a away from Elntnet's language; and that now in our Southern schools and on appro priate occasions of all sorts, other ver sions are sung, and that by tacit consent at the original words are seldom if ever used. tl and in fact, are unknown to the masses of cl pnl)le, educated or uneducated; that while i the national hymns of all nations are en gravedl on the minds of the people, by men, womten and children, the words of Dixie have been repudiated, rejected, cast out ri and are practically unknown? Certainly ' they are unworthy when considered in conne,:tiott with tile music andt sentiment of the dear ol' song.

"The Prince of Pilsen," the latest musi cal comedy by the authors of "The Burgo master" and "King Dodo," and makes a hit wherever it has been seen, was given at the Broadway last night for the first time and gave general satisfaction. A large audience was entertained and it showed its appreciation by liberal applause. The company is pronounced better than the average road company, both in appear ance and stage work. Jess Dandy has lost none of his funny ability as Hans Wag ner, the Cincinnati brewer, who is taken for the "Prince of Pilsen" at a Nice hotel. His (;erman dialect is certainly very catchy. Arthur l)onahlson, as the Prince, did not come up to expectations in the singing line, but lie did some very clever acting. Ruth Peeblcs, as Nellie Wagner, daughter of the brewer, very winsomely acted her part and won liberal applause. lieut. 'Tlom Wag ner, the brewer's son, won merited ap plause in his singing, while Walt Clifford, as the English cockney, was well up in his parts. Idaline Cotton, famous as an imper sonator of French characters, was as clever as ever in her role of French maid. Nick Long, the concierge of the big hotel, anxious for the patronage of the supposed l'rince of Pilsen, played the part of Fran cois to perfection. Trixie Fraganza, the charming widow, Mrs. Crocker, deserves much of the praise that has been written of her acting and singing. Almyra Lockwood, as Edith Adams, di vided the honors with the star. There is consi'lerable cachy music in the play some of which has already been heard hlete. "The Message of the Violet" and "The Tale of the Shell" were among the especially popular airs. "The Song of the Citi's" made a hit when Butte came in for a joke or two. The songs in the sec ond and last act which were as follows, were warmly received and in every in stance one or more encores were neces sary: "The Field and Forest"-Fox Ilunters, "It Is the Dutch," "The Amer ican Girl" (Song of the Cities), "The Tale of the Sea Shell," "Back to the Boule vards." "Our Floral Queen," "Fall In" March solo. Nit the least of the attractive features are the plretty girls of whom there are a number. "The Prince of Pilsen" will bie presented again tonight and another large house is expected. "Yon Yonson." Perennial "Yon Yonson" which, like "Human liHearts" and "East Lynne," goes on forever, held forth at the Grand Opera house yesterday afternoon and evening. The old standard is put on by a good com pany and as usual was a big thing with the patrons of the house. Nelse Erickson is still in the title role. lie can sing and dance some, beside being able to act alnd deserves the popularity he has won. Maude Lel'age, Tom O'Brien and several others deserve mention. "Yol" appeals especially to the Scandi navian constituency and they were natur ally well represented. New Bill at Empire. The new bill at the Empire proved a hit at five performances yesterday and the lit tle house is doing a big business. The clean entertainment offered and the class of attractions-of a high order for the price of admission-merits the patron age received. The Mortons, jugglers, whose work has received encomiums on the eastern, vaude ville circuits, are justly headliners. Can non, the electric dancer, is again a favor ite, and Gibbs, the newsboy whistler, makes a hit. There arc other good features and views of the vitascope. PERSONAL NOTES I)r. O. Y.
