HEINZE'S BIG INTEREST Recent developments show that the Ilcinze interest in the wages of his etlt ployes has beenl evenl greater and more varied than was shown by his periodical bragging about it. Two per cent a week is about as exact a measuretlment of this interest as can be ntiade from the explanoa tion of his system of payment offered by this illus.trious philanthropist. It might be a trifle more, or it might be a trifle less, according as the nee.ds of tlhe wage earner prompted him to take advantage of the dis count systeml of Ihinzse paylmnct of ii inze wages at the Ilcinze bank. lie could work a week, and at the endl of the week could receive his wages less two per cenit if he desired to do so. It was not colmpulsory, but if there was no discount there were lno wages till the end of the montih. The or dinary needs of tile mnen as well as the claim that nearly all of his emplloyes are in favor of a return to the system indi cates that it was almost as effective as if lmade compulsory. Two per cenit is lot muich on a week's wages to a m10an who wants the money. It would be only fifty cents to the miller who earned $.25 in the week. Take a thou sand men, which is a conservative esti mate of the United Court and Copper cont pany force ordinarily, anlld it would aggre gate only a net profit of about $5oo per week or say $25,(oo per year to the Ilcinze bank at the outside. A mere bagatelle to wage earners. If only one-half of tile men took advantage of tile generous plan of payment and discounted only three weeks' wages each month, the rake-otf to the batink would not exceed $ 0o,,oo. Is it any wonder that Mr. lfeinze or dered the practice discontinued imlmediate ly after hearing that it caused unfavor able colmment ? Is it a cause for astonish slent that this generous-minded individualo covered up one line of his interest ill wages to exploit antluther by addressing aI fussy letter to thile "Aetna tanking & Trust Company" on the subject signed ";. Augustus Ilcinze," and neglected to advise WIhom it might conllcern tltat F. Augustus lieinze is the president of the Aetna Bank & Trust company? And he does it all in the naile of gen erosity and because lie "supposci it would be looked upon as a great benefit by the Pien.." Pooh ! Bath I Poohbah. A MODEL MESSAGE President Roosevelt's message to con gress on the subject of Cuban reciprocity is a model. It is the shortest document recommending legislation which has been transmitted by any president in a genera tion. The suggestion that there was not much to be said might have been offered in consideration of many a long-winded executive communication to congress. Moreover there was much to be said, and Mr. Roosevelt has presented it all com prehensively as well as concisely. The Congressional Record is likely to be padded with speeches on the subject pre pared for political lTeffect, and the longest and the best of them will scarcely contain a greater number of, or better, reasons in support of the legislation which is certain to be perfected. The president has shown that it is possible to transmit a message to congress on important subjects without embodying within it all of the literature on the sub ject which can be accumulated by all of the departments of government. A similar method of treatment of the questions to be presented by the executive in his mes sage at the regular session will not only establish a valuable precedent but may result in the public as well as congress being able to reach an understanding of the administration purposes during the life of the administration. For years the proof-readers have practically enjoyed a smonopoly of the business of reading in their entirety the messages of presidents. INTER MOUNTAIN CONTESTS In the course of an interview last even ing on the subject of the Inter Mountain's World's Fair tour contests, Mrs. J, B. ~lontgomery of Portland, Oregon, one of the Woman's Board of Managers of the fair, said: "I am so pleased with the enterprise of your paper in sending these young women down to St. Louis that I wish you to state that I promise, now, on behalf of the Woman's Board of Managers of the World's Fair, that the board will give a reception in their honor while In Pt, Louis." Further, Mrs. Montgomery promised voluntarily to assist in arrang iug the details of this event, This very gracious praise and kindly 5' interest In the Inter Mountain's plans for entertaining representative Montana young womanhood at the fair is but another testimonial to the importance of the contests which this newspaper is con ducting. Coming from a region where there are 1good newspapers, big news papers, enterprising newspapers, Mrs. Montgomery is astonished at this extra ordinary stroke of enterprise on the part of a daily journal. It is a greater thing than any Pacific coast newspaper ever attempted, and in what it offers the suc cessftul young ladies it is the most generous proposition ever laid before the people of the west by any publication. Under these circumstances Mrs. Montgomery's amazctennt iand admiration is justified. But in Monitana, as well as among Montana's friends inl other states, the plan is evoking just as much praise and just as much admiration as Mrs, Montgomery gives it. The Inter Mountain predicted that the contests would awaken interest in every section of this ilmmense state and start brisk races for the coveted prize. That prediction has been fulfilled as a glance at the tabulated statement of the votle oil another page well shows. So carefully were the details of the plan arranged, so fair are the rules, that it is assured that the most representative body of Montana young hldlies ever gathered togetlher will he that wl ,ckh the Inter Mountain will take to St. l.ouis lnext >car. THE MAYOR AS PLAINTIFF A week ago the Inter Mountaii printed, a conmtunication ntddreledss to Mayor MIl lins and dealing with his alminislration of public affairs and his rotlnuct as a public official. Basing his comnplailit upon that coilllllntlint iatioli, the llayor lis COhIl nmelced a suit a:.ainst the Inter Mountain PhllliIllihng oml)lpany, it: busintl. s la tnlager andl editor. sanid pilaces his e timatc of dalatges through injury to his character at $5',000. The mayor is entitledl to jtstice. The defentdants it this action will ask nothing more for themrselves adl will ie colntent w;th nothinig less. The lmerits of theciases a c:use cannot be determinedl by discussion in alvance of their prcs: ntlentl in court. It would Ite highly reprehelmiihle for either party to (do anytnillg which might be con. slrued as an alttmptllt to create prejudice in the milnds of the honorable judlges of Silter Ilow county who may lie required to sit in jiludgnnt of the lmatte.r. Meanwhile, Mayor Mullins and the Inter Mountain oth tcontinue to have piulic dlulies ito perform. In view of the publi ration of the mayyr'* conmpl.lintt, which is not to lbe regardled as the least ridliculoius of his manyi absurd attlempts lto justify his (tli'ial Iunfiltness, it senitIs proper It infortm the public that the articles respecting the nlayor's coiluct in the Inter Mountain have been invariably published witlhout malice, with regard for tile public in terests, the reputation of the cotmntmuity and its stcurity a.ainst crime. Their pur pose. as far as Mullins' characeter was in volved, was to improve illnstead of to in jure it. If he shall persist inl Itis nflicial policy, admlitled and evi n Iiutcitel if by himiself, of ignoirin:g his oath of oulbic i aind in Cn couiragillg and protictinlg lawlessntess, inl violating laws which lie has sworn to eIn force and ini mlakilng the pnlblic a partnler in the profits of crilm, decent regarI for ri; hi public policy will imlpel andl compel the Inter Momntain to c ontinutle ill ex posure of his official misdleeds, ill con denmation of them, and in detma:nt that lie shall he hehl responsible for them ac cording to law for such ca:;es made anIl lrovided. As days go by and events accumulate, the Inter Mountain becomes more firmly convinced that every cause should be given a fair trial, before an impartial jud,;e, etc. In its present predicament the governt llment of Coluombia is entitled to the sym pathy of the grafters of all nations. That part of Mayor Mullins' complaint which alleges that the Inter Mountain has a large circulation is strictly true. It's increasing amazingly fast, too. President Roosevelt's message to the special session of congress was so short that he was able to deliver it before Walt-r Wellmnan could anticipate it. At this time it is due some two hun dred charming young women of this glori ous commonwealth to say that thirty Mon tana maidens will go to the World's Fair at St. Louis as the Inter Mountain's guests next sumtmer irrespective of the moral character of the Hon.. Pat Mullins' official reputation or any measure of damages thereunto appertaining and apportioned as a tax upon Inter Mountain assets. In addition to requesting Mr. Ifanna to continue to act as manager of the cam paign next year, the result in Ohio last week would almost justify the president in urging Mr. Bryan and Tom Johnson to continue to push their plans to make John son the democratic presidential candidate. Very casual observation ought to con vince Governor Toole that the arrival of winter weather has not improved the situ ation. Doubtless the idea that young Mr. 'Mc Clellan was born a politician originated from the fact that he first appeared on earth in the year when his lamented father had a mistaken notion that he could de feat Abraham Lincoln in a presidential election. It appears from the records that in Butte Justice is blind only in one eye. The result In Massachusetts as finally analyzed shows that while the demo cratic candidate fused with the socialist platform, the socialist voters contintms in dependent with respect to the democratio ticket. That, after all, is the regular socialist idea of an equal division of things. Of course the half inch of snow which fell in Butte yesterday was a blinding blizzard when report of it reached the New York yellow journals. It appears that Mayor Mullins has been taking some more bad advice and acting on it. About all that remains to be told of Mr. Schwab's exploits is how it happened that Monte Carlo survived his system. It is not exclusively the light of tlfef honeymoon which enables Senator Toln I'latt to take such a bright view of tlheb Tammany victory in New York. Sam Parks finally admitted the truth and announced that his most valuable service to' the wage-earner was in the example he dt forded of what they should avoid. NOT OUT OF THE WOOD Confused Prospects of Demooratlo Fusion in 1904, I Boston Journal.] Some of the opposition papers which have b.ern following socialism as repre .sented by Bryan and Tont Johnson now congratulate the democratic party upon the distinction of their socialist allies. The dtemocraitic leaders must not assumle too much. The democratic party has yet to reckon with the trcnendously large con tingent of democrats who followed Bryan,. notl because they were forced to do sor but becanse they believed in those ideas for which llryan and 'Ton Johnson con tinue to stuand. 'l'o, Jolhnson hls been turned down by the gold democracy as well as by the re publicans, anid the demnocrats who were shotutino-c for ; ormlan or for Cleveland or for McClellan must bear in mind that they have to reckon with the gentlemen over whose prostrate forlms they now are loudly shouting. 'fThe fusion of the Cleveland democrats and of the 'To,, Johnson democrats will be more difficult in ioot than it was in trob, when the gold democrats, except Mr. tluncy. bolted. Nor will the installation of lTammany as the dominating factor in dem ocratic lnational politics tend to give con lidence to the great body of independent voters in the democratic party. TO PASS THE TIME The Police Reports, Possibly. Mrs. Staylate-W-\ hy don't you do some thing clever and get your name in the papers ? Mr. Staylate-Madame, when you are sleeping I ami planning the cleverest speeches that ever emanated from man, and it is all I can do to keep my name out of the papers. The Making of a Magnate. \\illic---Pa, did you say you had the bulls in a corner and would make a barrel of money? ltroker--Yes, son. Why?

Malbel-She did, but since she was con firmed she has been casting down idols. The press dispatches say that Emperor Williant's physicians have refused to al low him to, speak for a week. In other words they have condemned hint to death. The Frozen Cababge Journal has the fol lowing : She sat on the frnce on a star-lit night, And dangled her feet dlt the soft moont light; The grass grew up .and tickled her feet, She ducked for the house in full retreat. A Georgia preacher has threatened to turn out of his church every member who takes part in lynchinlg negroes. HIis rev erentce possibly hais never attetmplted to break up the American Baseball league, or he would know better than to ijuterfere with Georgia's national game. SPINNING Like a blind spinner in the sun, I tread my days; I know that all the threads will run Appointed ways; I know each day will bring its task, And, being blind, no more I ask. I do not know the use or name Of that I spin; I only know that some one came, And laid within My hand the thread, and said, "Since you Are blind, but one thing you can do." Sometimes the threads so rough and fast And tangled fly . I know wild storms are sweeping past, And fear that I Shall fall, but dare not try to find A safe place, since I am blind. I know not why, but I am sure That tint and place, In some great fabric to endure Iast time and race, My threads will have, so from the first, Though blind, I never felt accurst, I think perhaps this trust has sprung From one short word Said over me when I was young- So young, I heard It, knowing not that God's name signed My brow, and sealed me His, though blind4 But whether t.dsi be seal or sign Within, without. o It matters not. The bond Divine I never doubt. I know us set set me here, and still~ And glad and blind, I wait his will, lut listen, listen day by day, To hear their tread Who bear the Ainished web away, And cut the thread, And bring God's message in the sun, "Thou poor blind spinner, work is done," -Helen Fiske Jackson, PEOPLE WE MEET Judge W. , Cullen of Spokane and Mrs. Cullen are in the city today and ex pect to leave tonight for the snetropolls of Eastern WAshington. Mrs. Cullen has been visiting her daughter, Mrs. H. O. Wilson, while Judge Cullen arrived last night from Helena, where he maintains an office, and spent today renewing Butte ac quaintances. "Yes, we like Spokane pretty well," said Judge Cullen. "Of course we can't forget our old MontAna friends and occasionally like to make a visit here, but for a perma nent residence, we prefer Spokane: I think the weather is more favorable than in Helena, where we lived for so many years. The altitude of Spokane is less than Helena and the climate is on the whole pleasanter. Mind you, I am not saying anything against Helena or Mon tana. I spent a day in Helena and the town looked very good. I have numerous interests there and always expect to be identified with the city. Spokane is going ahead. Many new buildings went up last year, notably some fine residences. The city is growing steadily and will always be one of the-good towns of the North West." "Lewistown is a lively place now with the completion of the Montana railroad," said A. I. Mosely, traveling freight and passenger agent for the Short Line and other Harriman lines, who has returned from the county seat of Fergus county. "There were 40 passengers into town the day I went in and they say crowds have been coming daily. I noticed that there are a number of new business blocks andI new residences and a general air of thrift. The (;reat Falls stage line is making a fast run evidently with a view of com. plting with the railroad. The coach makes the trip to l.ewistown in about ir hours. They change horses a number of times. 'The minintg and stock interests of the country are flourishing." "I am not particularly surprised to hear that the secretary of the interior has ordered a large amount of available public land in Northern Montana with drawn from entry." said Donald Bradfora of Ilelena, formerly a member of the state aril land commission, who is interested in a number of irrigation projects. "I think Mr. Hitchcock is doing just about right. 'Where have been palpable frauds commit. ted and as the dispatches say, the land has be,'n withdrawn pending investigation. There are many instances where people take up desert claims and succeed in get ting title without ever conforming with the law which requires an expenditure of money anld the placing of water on the land. This action of the secretary is to be commended and will probably bring a few people to time. It will withdraw about all of the available land in the dis trict embraced in the Great Falls land of lice from settlement. The result will be salutary." Gatling Gun Too Humane. "I could kill that Hlarold (utipps," hissed the girl in the new fall coat. "\'hat for?" asked her amazed chuitm. "\Why, he crept up behind tile and said that hle wanted to tell the 'old, old story.'" "Did hie propose?" "No; the idiot asked why a chicken crossed the road."-('hicago News.

AMONG THE PLAYERS Cure for Despondency. After all it is more than evident that the average theater-goer attends the play house for the sake of a good jolly laugh, and for that reason the comedy epidemic has come to stay a long spell. The great est of all truths is "laugh and the world laughs with you, weep and you weep alone," therefore, the great majority of amusement patrons prefer to witness a performance which will make them forget their troubles and make them laugh long and hearty in the bargain. "Reuben in New York," is said to be the prize winner of all such plays, its laugh-provoking qualities being superior to any comedy creation ever placed before the American public. At the Grand, November sa. "Florodora." The "Florodora" sextette has been given credit for bringing about many in novations since the first strains of "Tell Me, Pretty Maiden" floated out of the New York Casino and filled Broadway with its tuneful melody. They have been called the "emancipators of the chorus girls," "the obliterators of the stage door Johnny" and many other things, but somehow everybody has seemed to forget that they were the originals from which the "show girl," so prevalent in musical comedies the past two years, graduated. When the sextette, with its stunning gowns' came on the stage for the first time someone term them "show girls." At that time they were the only ones to whom the critics referred in this fashion, but now the "show girl" is a more numerous quantity than can be found in any other department of a musical comedy. The originals of the "show girl" will be here with Fisher & Ryley's big New York "Florodora" com piny. At the Broadway November 3,. West's Minstrels. Long noted as the leading attraction of its kind in America, the Wm. H. West minstrels are said to be even larger and stronger this season that ever before, carrying as they do the largest and most expensive equipment of any minstrel com pany in the world. The color arrange ment in the costuming and scenic first part setting is described as being par ticularly beautiful and striking, the entire scheme of color being cerise and gold. The entire company of 40 people par ticipate in this comedy, and it has proved a novelty that will be most generally followed in minstrelsy, if one is to judge 'by the favor with which it has apparently been received. At the Grand Friday, November 13. If Heinze Law Applied to Heinze. [Ravalli Republican.] If it is unlawful for the Amalgamated to own B. & M. stock then-unless the law is playing favorites-it must also be unlawful for the United Copper company to own M. O. P. stock.

P. com pany to bring suit against that company and secure an order in Mr. Clancy's court enjoining that company and declaring the United Copper company an outlaw in the state and compelling a shutdown of the Heinze mines and smelters, then we would have a lovely winter in prcspect.
