Our esteemed contempory, the Teton Times, opposes to the scheme for a meeting of west side 3itizens to deter mine the location of the capital a sug gestion that the east side should stand together. It esys: The location of the state capital is of great moment to every citisen. Not only should present ciroumetances be taken into consideration, but future prospects are as of great or greater importance. The cap ital when located will be permanent, and future generations shall have to abide by our decision. As near as possible to the 4 center of population is the place for it. What is now the center of population will in a very few years be far from it. There are vast tracts of land in eastern Montana that are fast filling up with a people who are come to stay. Eastern Montana is de veloping, not with the rapidity that char acterizes the mining districts of the west, but with a surety of permanence that can not be said of them. When extensive min ing will be a thing of the past, then will the west of the state be depopulated, and the agricultural and stock raising districts will contain the majority of the population. I And even if the minerals are exhaustless the east will still continue to develop, and it will have a convenient capital itf a divis ion of the state has to be made to ac quire it. It would be unfortunate to have the aeotional issue raised by the people 'on either side of the range, and we are glad to note that the citizens of Butte on Saturday night, by a large majority, tabled a resolution favorlng a conven tion of west slde counties. Such a scheme would not work out in practice, anyway, and, if it were feasible, it would give rise not only to unfortunate polit loal dissensions in the future, but would in other ways establish a line demarka tion between communities, which should have no existence. At the present time i the equipoise between the east and Nest sides is very nicely adjusted. At 1 the last election the total vote of the state was a fraction less than 31,000, of which the west side counties, Beaver Head, Missoula, Deer Lodge and Silver Bow, cast 15,205, or about 700 less than half. It is difficult to determine which side holds the political balance. Let us I never find out! The railroads have crossed and tunnelled the ranges and wiped out the mountain line. We are a homogeneous people, one in interest and purpose. We couldn't convince our selves to the contrary if we tried. Let us not try. Settle the capital question on its merits. Vote it to the most ac cessible town for the people of the en tire state, to the place where the ac commodations are best, where tihe pub lio business can be best handled. No east side convention, no west side con vention! No sectionalism! TRItCK' OF AVERAGING. By adding together a lot of articles on the free list and some on which duties are paid, the Benton River P'ress reaches the astonishing conclusion that the average duty of the McKinley schedules is 23 per cent. Why, bless you, the average of the old law was more than 47 per cent, and that of the Mills bill was more than 41 per cent. Average the schedules of the McKinley bill through and you will find they raised the old duties 13 per cent. But the readers of the different sides of the tariff question are pretty well informed as to tis trick of averaging. 11arper's Weekly thus exposes the fraud of it: If there is anythisn in statisticso more blighting, more delusive, more inimical to a clear understanding, and more pr:even tive to honest conclusions than another, it is that triehsy sprite Average. When an orator begins to discourse upon averages honest men should shun him. He is s.m ply attempting deception, wittingly or un wittingly. For examprlle, he tells his audi ence of a mill in which thete are employed 4,500 persons, the average yearly erlrnings being $600 each, In that mill there will be one man earning $5,000, five earning $5,o000O each, 100 earning $750 eich, 1,000 eanifig $600 and 3.000 earning $00 eachb. There ie not much truth told by that kind of an sy ornge, but the subtlety of the average. monger is still better illustrated in tables of domestic economy. 'The orator desirts to show that the cost of food is less than it was, so he works out an average for the last twelve months. He makes a table for himself, which we will illustrate. He rep resents the prices at the beginning of the period by 100. The additions show the per centage of rise in price; the subtractions the decrese. He is eunning in composing his table, but its detail8 are not for the pub lio. The peoprle who listen to him mast be contented with his result. Here is his method: Meat..............................100.75 Bread.... ..................... Pepper........................... 71100 Maustard ............................. 60. 00 Es .s.............................. 88.00 Butter.............................. ' 9j.r Ioe oream ....................... r3.0o Averaae........- .............. 60 "Under the benign influenoes of this law (or this administration, as the case may be].' setes the onsor, '"the eoset of tia haee ose down It this fair lead of earl .I40 sei eeet,' the amseteotloa American oeitttsd, Itti eg to the dlumive sang of avesaas, w9i rd Whyl It it that the taPtutl gater of tho oa+todal eotsit tt, ll him one thilng, ewtle his batlehel and blier's bills teil hte flite another, If he could ae the methud by whilh the averag is obtalned, ihe would reulis how figures may be made to lise, This illustration is doubtless sufficient. It is unnecessary toshow,bow the average cst of living so sometimes determined by including hammers nad tongs and patent medicines in the table as if they were of the same value as food and clothes. We commend these observations to the River Press. SrrvxR has touched 82ij cents as a result of republic n legislation. But for the republican party it would be on a parity with gold; but for the republi can party it would be coined free at all the mints to-day, The voters of Mon tana know to which party the present depression in silver is due; they know which party struck the first and fatal blow at our chief industry. The follow. ing from the Denver Times is pertinent: Silver at 8234 cents is not apt to improve the chances of President Harrison in No vember so far as the western states are son corned. It. will be extremely difficult to argue the ordinary republican voters of Colorado into the belief that President Harrison is sin cerely in favor of silver except as a vote eatohing plan to be used for a short time in the west. The present decline in silver will prove a serious set-back to the republican party in the west. at a time when it most needs strengthening. It will hurt the state and legislativd tickets as well as reduce the chances of the republican electors in this state. The republican state and congressional conventions can only hope to carry the fall elections this year by nominating men who shall be willing to pledge themselves to the free coinage cause first and to party ties afterwards. The year offers exceptional conditions. and they must be met by unusual measures. Straiaht-out Harrison electors cannot be elected in Colorado in November unless President Harrison makes a radical change of front on the silver question. This the president is not likely to do. The same situation exists in Montana, only more so. THAT dispatch that Congressman Watson "collapsed physically and stag gered off the stage," during his opening campaign speech, looks suspicious. Cobb, of Alabama, will be pardoned if he drops a mean insinuation about cold tea. THE fact that Judge Gresham has deter mined to take the stump for Gen. Weaver is iregnant with startling results in the presidential election.-Denver News. How about the other fact that he will not take the stump for Weaver? CARTER'S advisory committee is com posed of men whose aggregate wealth is more than forty millions. What beauti ful frying! The Paper,Age. The world has seen its tron age and its brazen age; but this is the age of paper. We are making so many things of paper that it will soon be true that without paper there is nothing made. We live in paper houses, wear paler clothing and sit on paver cush ions in paper cars rolling on paper wheels. If we lived in Bergen, Norway, we could go on Sundays to a paper church. We do a paper business over paper counters, buying paper goods. paying for them with paper money and deal in paper stocks on paper margins. We row races in paper boats for paper prizes. We go to paper theaters where paper actors play to paper audiences. As the age develops the coming man will become more deeply enmeshed in the paper net. He will awake in the morning and creep from under the paper clothing of his paper bed and put on his paper dressing gown and his paper slippers. He will walk over paper carpets, down paper stairs, and seating himself in a paper chair will read the paper news in the morning pape'. A paper bell will call him to his breakfast, cooked in a paper oven, served on paper dishes laid on a paper cloth on a paper table. He will wipe his lips with a paper napkin, and having put on his paper shoes, paper hat and paper coat, and then taking his paper stick (he has the choice of two descriptions already), he will walk on a paver pavement or ride in a paper carri age to his paper office. He will organize paper enterprises and make paper profits. He will sail the ocean on paper steamships and navigate the air in paper balloons. He will smoke a paper cigar or paper tobacce in a paper pipe, lighted with a paper match. He will write with a paper pencil, whittle paper sticks with a paper knife, go fishing with a paper fishing rod, a paper line and a paper hook, and put his catch in a paper basket. He will go shooting with a paper eun, loaded with paper cartridges and will defend his coun try in paper forts with paper cannon and paper bombs. Having lived his paper life and achieved a paper fame and paper wealth he will retire to paper leisure and die in paper peace. There will be a paper funeral, at which the mourners, dressed In paper crape will wive their eyes with paper handkerchiefs, and the preacher will preach in a paper pulpit. He will lie in a paper coffin. Elsewhere in this paper it will be seen that he has a chance of doing so al ready if he is a raper-we mean panu,er. He will be wrapl ed in a paper shroud, his naime will be engraved on a paper I late, and a paper hearse, adorned with piper plumes, will carry him to a paper lined grave, over which will be raised a paper monument.

Yes, we fished with them, camped with them, dined with them, slept with them-why, man, they almost ate us alive!"-New York Press. Scandal Well Defned. Some puolls were asked by an examiner at a school examination whether they knew the meaning of the word "scandal." One little girl held up her hand, and being told to answer the question, she replied: "Nobody does nothing, and everybody goes telling of it everywhere."-Boston Com mercial. I Man's Oplaion of Women.

Yesterday was the hottest day this year in Helena, the maximum being 94.3 at 3:45 n'. n. While it was scorching in the sun there was a breeze all day, making it pleas ant in the shade.
