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,

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. Mullins. There is no
ques2tion that the aldermen (are within i
the limitations of tht.ir offiei:al authority
in this inquiry. If the mayor has per
formed his ollicial duties with fidelity, his
testinoliiy could nut fail to refllect credit
2upon his work. 'loter thile ciremsl;taces,
his et' spislr otus defiance of the co uiiiittee
is more likely to he t.klt as 2 n evidencet
of fear of results thanrl of coturage to mllect
thcm.
Ilut the lma22yor's refusal to testify was
promptly followed by otlicial action which
a(tlOulted to (a contlession of responsibility
fotr unlawful conduct of the city ad iniis
tratiolln. The general order to chlose tlhe
town, against thlse forms of vice and
crime which have theretofore been protected
as well as toleractti, leIaves 2o roomi for
doubt in any minld. The iamounts which
the executive Ialks about as revenues
derived by the city government from
olfficial sanction of the traffic prohibited
by law are of course no justificatii of
the illegal ibusiness. Hlis effort ti head
off the investigation started by the council
through tardy remloval of tthe cause canlnot
relieve him from responsibility for wrong
doing accomtplished. 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

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 music antd sen- a
tituent of I)ixie are dear to the Soutnern v
heart, but why should we wish to etnbaltn

AMONG THE PLAYERS
"The Prince of Pilsen."
"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.
