The McKinley bill has become law and the working classes of this country are going to show their profound apprecia tion of a protective tariff by contribut ing some 15 per cent more than formerly to the already inordinate gains of east ern capitalists and manufacturers. These men are the bottle-holders of the repub lican party. In return for its complac ency to their interests, they stand ready to part with the "needful" to bolster up its campaign necessities. Among other results we are going to have a domestic tin-plate industry. Hitherto we have imported what we needed, and the working classes of this country have been paying over seven millions of dollars of duty for the priv ilege. They are the chief users of arti cles made from tin-plate. Just how that payment benefited them, or how it pro tected a non-existent industry, is a point hard to understand. But, at any rate, the capitalist is going to devote his at tention to tin-plate. It will be nothing but a costly experiment for a little while, of course, but then he does not pay for it. The long-suffering public does that, and he gets the experience. He will pro vide employment for a large number of workmen and that must be matter of congratulation. lie is not going to pay them, though. It would never do for him to risk his money in that foolish way. He knows a trick worth two of that, so long as republican speakers can gull their victims. He is to have a bonus of more than sixteen million dollars a year to helpihim out in his benevolent sce me of establishing a new in duitry. It will be strange if he cannot pay the dear workmen out of that sum and save a trifle for himself. There certainly is another plan, but he has no affection for it. It would put nothing in his pocket, and then, what would become of republican campaign funds? The same public might import their tin-plate free of all duty. That would save them this sum of sixteen millions. The money is not needed for revenue, only for yachts and coaching tours for rich men. The em ployee, that were to be. need not lose their wages. The public could still sup ply the money, but they might give it to their fellow workingmen. They could, with this sum, select 20,C000 of the future tin-platers, employ them at $600 per annum to do nothing, and still save four million dollars by the transaction. If any of the workmen chosen made any violent objections, it might be possible to fill their places. Thomas Henry Carter voted for this bill. The voter who casts a vote for him in Montana this fall, votes for the per petuation of just such iniquitous meth ods as this we have exposed. He votes for unjust discriminations between the sections of our common country. He votes for the ruin of the farmer and the oppression of the laboring man. He ranges himself on the side of the capi talists who have no use for workingmen except as a means of supply. The labor mg man who votes for Carter is false to the interests of his class. The farmer who does so is blind to all the signs of the times. Carter is entitled fairly and squarely to the votes of eastern money bags; if he has at last made up his mind that he really wants to sit again in con gress, let him wire them to that effect. Such men as he are useful agents and oi:ght to be provided with seats in the states they represent. Carter's record in congress is not that of a Montanman with the interests of the people of this great state at heart. There are wires on him from every quarter but this. The man for Montana is William W. Dixon. TaR camera, which the republicans are seeking to utilize as a campaign in strument, cannot portray the senate in the act of seating Messrs. Sanders and Power in places to which the people of this state, through the legislature, had elected two other men, Messrs. Clark and Maginnis; nor can it photograph the house of representatives, working under "automatic rules," unseating eight dem ocrats during the first session who had been elected by majorities ranging all the way from 19 to 13,153. These inci dents, however, have impressed them selves upon the minds of the people, and what they think of those high-handed acts will be told at the polls next month. The citizens of the country at large are particularly interested in the result in Montana. They will watch to see whether or not the people of Montana are willing to condone the revolutionary crime by which the republicans added two to their number in the United States senate. That question overshadows all others in this state, and the answer should be an emphatic condemnation of the wrong and its perpetrators. Agorasn item has been added to the already long list of the things which Cute was going to do, but on which he failed to connet, During the last cam p.ag he promised the sheep men t 00M u eouaty that he would have the *t 1ýll ýrNMý++t Mr? f$4 tiiari rt ; (at4 thPre price of their wool run up when he got to congress. This got him many votes, but the outcome has not justified the expectations which were built up on Carter's alleged bullish propensities, as wool is now cheaper than it was a year ago. Carter and Reed may have a strong cinch on this young republic, but the two Toms together, one with his gavel and the other with his gabble, have not succeeded in getting the wool market in a sling. The voters of Choteau county will remember this, and see to it that Carter does not pull the wool over their eyes again. When it comes to promises Carter is what might be callel a howl ing success. As a performer he is "not in it." VOTERS of both parties are laying low for John W. Power in Choteau county. They accuse the Powers with having discouraged individual enterprise in Fort Benton, thereby causing a general stagnation of business and driving cap ital to other places. The policy of "hogging it" is likely to cut a figure in the coming election. If the pseudo senator at Washington will keep his ear to the ground on November 4 he will hear something drop in Choteau. It will be the republican candidate for state senator. IT will be a great relief to readers of Shakespeare to know that Victorien Sardou, the French playwright, denies having said that Shakespeare was with out talent as a dramatist. However, as the Frenchman has been making an adaptation of "Antony and Cleopatra," it will be possible to learn in how far his ideas and those of the Englishman cor respond upon questions of dramatic con struction and poetic expression. THERE are twenty-eight more days of the campaign, but if there were ten times twenty-eight Mr. Carter could not explain to the satisfaction of the voters of Montana why he killed two votes for free coinage by pairing with a free coin age democrat at a time when every true friend of our silver interests was on his guard. E. BURn GRUBB has broken his chrys alis and developed from a plain New Jerseyman-albeit one who parts his whiskers and hair as he does his name, in the middle--into a full-fledged diplo matic butterfly. He will spread his wing in the court of Madrid for a season as minister of tge United States. Do You want to have county can vassing boards sit as judges, throw out returns at their pleasure and reverse election results without hearing evi dence? If you do not, then you cannot vote the republican ticket this fall, for that is the principle for which the re publican platform declares. WARHORSE FISHER'S coarse insult to the Irish race in his speech in the senate last winter should retire him to private life by an overwhelming vote. The peo ple of Jefferson county, regardless of party, owe it to themselves to defeat this blatant demogogue. WE have failed to discover in any re publican organ any comment on the fact that the alphabetical list of voters at precinct 17, Meaderville, was suspicious. But, then, Meaderville, to be sure, gave an overwhelming republican majority. WE regret to notice that the genial and gifted editor of the Inter Mountain has abdicated his chair in favor of a dreary and prolix legal shyster. The re publicans of Silver Bow have suffered by the change. ARE yOU going to vote for a represent ative in congress next month? If so, you must register. There are but a few more days in which you can do this. Why not attend to it to-day? A Great Parade in the Rain. ST.

President Diaz rides daily through the streets and woods. The free way in which he exposes himself shows he discredits the rumors of plow against his life. President Barrillas, of Guatemala, told a correspondent that the statement that he was trying to call a congress of the Central American states is incorrect. This, h said, had been done three years ago, and the congress should have met in Honi.ras on September 16, but on account of the way, the meeting was postponed. He said under no consideration would a voice or vote be allowed the United States or any other foreign nation. For Reasons of Diplomacy. Barnm, Oct. 5.-The Austrian cabinet, it is said, decided not to meet Emperor Will iam, in order to save Premier Taafe from a difficult position.

As this is intended for the pros pective purchaser, not for the in struction of the advertiser, we shall limit our remarks to a few questions and answers suitable to our purpose. That judicious advertising pays is a fact no longer doubted by the wide-awake merchant. But what is judicious advertising? An advertisement that is not a statement of plain facts-that lacks the impress of unvarnished truth-that borders on the realm of fiction-such an adverisement is not only soon detected but as certainly avoided-no 'matter how adroitly the advertiser seeks the ear of the public. To gain the confidence of the public, simply to advertise will not suffice; the merchant must keep faith with his customers; he must do what he advertises, and have what he advertises. Such advertisements are sought out by the reader in the hope that it may contain an announcement of a special bargain offered, or to as certain the price of something he contemplates purchasing.
