CANWDDATES AND FREEK COINAOGE Mr. Cleveland's letter to tho Cooper Institute anti-stlver meeting on Tuesday night, in which he reiterates his opposi. tion to free coinage, will undoubtedly alienate from his support the delega tions of many of the western and south ern states, unless otlher issues become paramount and overshalow for a time the money question. It can hardly be expected that the democrats of Arkan sas, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Intliana, Iowa, Kansas, Michi gan, Montana, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas. West Vir glnia and Wyoming, in which states the party conventions declared for free coinage in 1890, will box the compass and get around to Mr. Cleveland's side of the question in 18.$.. Thie delega tions from these states will form a majority in the national democratic convention of 1892. The electoral votes of the same states are sulticient to elect thenext president. 'Under these circum stances it is not probable that the silver issue will be kept out of the contest next year. It was held in abeyance in 1888 and no declaration with regard to it was made in the party platform be cause Mr. Cleveland was the candidate I and the tariff the one issue. A great many things may happen in politics in sixteen months, and there is always a possibility that the issues may shift. The overwhelming democratic majority in the house of representatives of the next congress may pass a free coinage measure; the senate may pass it and the president, fearing the popular wrath and the loss of electoral votes to his party, may sign it. In that event the question will be out of the political arena and the tariff issue may again be come paramount. We say all this may happen, but it ts not likely to happen. The present outlook is that the repub lican party will maintain its attitude of opposition to free coinage, bid for the electoral votes of New York and the other eastern states, and light for su premacy in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, the middle west, where thi people are not strongly committed one way or the .other on the currency question. There is a possibility that this pro gramme may be disarranged in the re publican national convention by a com bination of the southern and western delegations. The delegates front the states where th;e farmers' alliance threatens to sap the life of the party will be staunch advocates of free coin age, as will the men from the mountain and Pacific states. The republican leaders may discover, when they have assembled in convention, that they have signed and'sealed to Wall street more than they can deliver. In the democratic party, as things are now drifting, the southern, granger. mining and Pacttic states are likely to be arrayed against the east both as to candidates and platforim. It will Ix, a most interesting struggle and the shift ing of electoral votesd tisy b. s. stir prising as to upset all c.alc:ulationtt in both parties.

Senator Stewart said distinct ly that he proposed an amendment and that the democrats, who had all favored unlimited free coinage, nearly all refused to support the measure. Still we hope Mr. Carter is right, and that the final settlement of the question in this f zongress will be the passage of the bill giving free coinage to all silver produced C rrom the mines of the United States. h That would be the sensible and just w thing to do, and that, we believe, would ft permanently settle the silver business ' within thirty days after it became a law." tr Wrui y. the last of the great army is saptains is lying at death's door the last hi f the great naval commanders in the ti war of the rebellion passes away.

Otherwise I voald lilke .o see a eastern man nominated." Ex-SPERaEa BLARSLY, of Q.llatin: "I am for David B.

McEtLwn of Gallatis: "Grover Cleveland is msy man if he is for free coin sge. If he is square against it he should sot be nominated and cannot be elected." Ma. TooLr, of Deer Lodge: "In Mr. )leveland's situation in New York he qoqld sardly be exneeted to declare for free coln age. If he is against it he should not be aominated. Ma. Woonsos, of Meagher: "I wa for )leveland until his letter appeared against ree coinage. Now I think he is a 'dead nock." Ma. Dar, of Silver Bow: "I favored Mr. leveland until I read. Friday's Isatmaso mT. Now I am for any democrat who aron free coinage of silver." Me. POOLz, of Jefferson: "I am still for leveland, believing in his honesty and that ae will at the proper time be in full accord rith the democratic party. If he runs on a tee coinage platform he will be true to his notto, that 'a public offiee is a public .st.' " Ma. WHALEV, of Jefferson: "Cleveland too much of a mugwump. I never liked im and I do not think he is a good man. want a democrat, ands David B. Hill fills he bill." Ma. BrLsn, of Jefferson: "I prefer John 1.

WALLACE, of Lewis and Clarke: "I as in favor of Mr. Cleveland until his atest change. I would not favor his nomi ation unless he comes out open for free sil 'er. It is the duty of western democrsts to rork for the nomination of a silver man." M.. P.BosE,. of Silver Bow: "I am for )avid B.

KEMPLAND, of Deer Lodge: "Cleve. .nd has certainly made a serious break if ea cares to be nominated. I am for Hill if Cleveland is against free coinage." Ma. HvonHs, of Deer Lodge: "I am for ;rover Cleveland all the time and am will. Ti ng to take chances on his favoring free mi :oinage. He is by far the strongest man in set he party." Ma.

I: HeaTOr H.renyrser, of Silver I:',w: "II never had any idea that'Cleveland was for frte silver coinage. He is a man of such ronounced convictions that I did not look or him to change them for the btmelfit of his party.

SENATOR GIBSON, of Cascade, had not read the letter of ex-President Cleveland and was somewhat chary about expressing an opinion. "There is no telling what may take place in two years," he said. "Cleve land may change his views." SENATOR BCKER, of Dawson: "It was a very foolish thing for him to do just at this time. I see no occasion for him to talk about the matter. It shows he is not a poli tician." THE FIGHT FOR PURE OILS What the Newsprpers Have to Say on the Question of Inspection. BouLI,Ue Aoa: The Great Falls Tribune seems to oppose the proposition of an inspector of oils because there will be some expense attached. Of course the inspection will cost money, which the users of oil will undoubtedly have to pay, directly or in directly, but for every one cent of cost they will get back a hundred cents in the im proved quality of oil, besides saving the loss incurred at present by explosions due to the dangerous oils sold in Montana. The Tribune advocates simply a law making it an offense punishable by fine to sell coal oil below proof. This would place the burden of investigation and prosecution practically upon individuals, and the Tribune has enough worldly experience to know that under such circumstances the law would not be enforced. P'nlIPeeURas MAIL.: The College of Mon tana can be thanked for the interest being displayed all over the state relative to the passage of some law to prohibit the impor tation and sale of impure kerosene oils in Montana. It is a well known fact that the oils brought into our new state are not nearly as pure as those supplied in the mar kets of our neighbors, where they have laws governing the matter and a penalty attached for their violation. It is natural that inferior stuf should be worked off on our merchants and people when there is no law to prevent it and no danger of having a fine to ray. As a consequence of the in' vestigations of Prof. Traphagen, of the College of Montana, the state press has taken hold of the matter with a will, and steps are being taken to paes a law restrict ing the sale of oils below a certain stand ard, both as to explosive proFerties and lighting power.
