Wha:t wotult still he more interesting iwould be the piubllica tion by the Journal if at few cases whero thle wages ef Ileleltna a:,rkingtmen have boon raised Iv theIlo 3lcinley bill. Iv the capital question is left to the free and untrammelled choice of the g.eoplo of Montana Helena will win it. She has thus far employed no bulldoz ing tactics and no methods that are not fair. She will acnet demand any man's vote. All that she asks is his careful examination of affairs and the free and honest expresslon of his will at the polls on election day. There is no curfew bell in this town. In another column we publish 'an in terview with President J. J. Hill, of the Great Northern railway, in which that gentleman very plainly states that neither he nor his company proposes to have anything to do with the capital contest in Montana. This should put an end to the stories of combinations in which Mr. lili's name has been un warrantably used. The rival towns will have to settle their own battles. Mr. Hill is not for or against any place, and his attitude is entirely proper. TsIERE can be no comparison between the equioments of Mr. Collins and Lieu tenant Governor Rickards for the oflice of governor, Mr. Collins has long been one of the representative men on Mon tans, a citized of the best type whose, counsel has been of value in the differ ent communities in which he has lived and to the state at large. Rickards, on the other hand, has attracted attention only because of his infamous ruling while a tool in the hands of knaves as wicked as himself. This is history. THE facts in the case show that thet management of the Butte ball team is entitled not only to severe criticism, but to just condemnation. Manager Muth offeroed to give a bond of $1,000 to play the game of ball to decide the cham pionship if the Butte management would a pay the guarantees for the previous .nmes. The refusal to accept this offer is evidence that the Butte man wanted to keep money which did not belong to itini, or that he was afraid to play the last game, or both. In any event it was dt isgraceful piece of business, and we io believe the people of Butte will find ny satisfaction in the result. The force bill means that in every precinct in Montana there would be polling places under charge of federal Alicials appointed by the party in power; t that these otlicials could be hired thugs c under the sole direction of a national a campaign committee; that there would be no limit to their powers for commit ting fraud and that the people would be forced to accept the results. It is the greatest strike at liberty and popiu lar government ever made in the history )f this country. It would work alike to a the injury of every community. The way to beat it is to defeat the party that originated and endorses it. HOLDI 'I) THE LINE. This is the year when all democrats c n Montana must vote the straight out ind-out democratic ticket, and not only Ihis but they must use their best efforts to convert others to the cause. There must be no trading of names, no barter- i ing of principles, nothing but shoulder to shoulder work for democratic success. The reasons for this are innumerable. f t'o begin with, we want Grover Cleve land and tariff reform. The people of lontana have too long suffered from the burlens inflicted by the tariff barons of the east. The have been pro lucers for others at prices offered, and have been customers at prices dictated ny these samne people. Now is the time t to force ia fair division of the burdens, and the people of this state must do :heir share and work for themselves by t voting for Mr. Cleveland. Then, again, the entire democratic ,tate ticket and the legislature must be ihosen. To preserve the honor of Mon ana our people cannot afford to again ,lace in office those iniquitous instru nents of fraud, Riuikards and Blake. It would be a lasting disgrace to any peo ple to elect these men to anything. TIheir records form suflicient reasons or turning thcem out this fall to stay. Again, it is thile plain duty of every lemtocrat to support the county demo cratic ticket. It is composed of men well known in this community for their nounesty and capability, and not a criti -ism is to be offered on the candidacy ,if any one. They are men who will serve the peoplle intelligently and faith fully, and all should be elected. No trading! Take it straight! "IHE TAIiFt Is A TAX" COL Alexander K. McCliure, the bril liant editor of the Philadelphia Times, is very well known to miany old Montan .nns with whom he was associated in Alder gulch years ago. Since that time hie las adlded luster to his reputation as t journalist, aid has long been counted one of the ailst and strongest advo catis of retlubhaniauiii in this country. lBut hie is a different citizen thiis year. 11i is not only quit the republicanii party, buti is using his best gifts t, piroiitte the election of Cleveland and tr-evcnson. Ilis chal;lenge to Maj. Mc Kmnliy to dlheate on the tariff qluestiol tas prompttly refusad, bitt that lid not deter (ol. Mc( lore from going on the stuciip wher he I is now doilng the best work of lhis life. In a recent iaciussion i, the tariff s alfoecting the tile farmer, ('ol. lMcC(ilur Ftated the situattion very leaurly and pIrecisely in these words: "The farmiier was told that the McKinley law would increase the price of his wool tIecauso t itlacnsed the tariff on foreigi wools that our nlanufactllrers iliat have, and that ,,ur farmern s can't eut,pl, hut to day the fainrutr's wool sells at faotu throe to tive clits it ittlond less tln the farmer could i< nlilalltld for It before thi panssatg of tte McKinley tarilll, while upon the wool one t e farmer anrid hie fanilv consnule. ther i in a trH e ii estass. t t tariff" taxis wilchi the farm rr mutst I.y.

'lhe inursased tarn , pottatoett Is iI al oviouis fraud as a prottective lieasnu. In ordinary seasone we do nuot import over one per cent of our cnonsumption, lnd when lur ettato crop fails, only thou do the high tariff taxes on peotatoeas become operativeN when te faaweer has neoe to lllsad has to pay the tet tp obtain hil seed. In short, we import a. potatoes of onssqtuenoe when we have sa average crop, and when we are dhort In ear supply. a8s Osere iyry few years, the ts~ mere become purehasbrs and mlst pay the increased tarit taxa levied by the UMKia. lay bill. There is. therefore, no protection to the farmer, and the taxes upon the orm modity only become oppressive to him." But the evil workingl of the tariff ap ply not only to the farmer, but to the day laborer, the merchant and the pro fessional man as well. They are taxed on every manufactured article pur chased to support the manufacturing east in affluence. How many citizens in Helena, for instance, receive any beoie tits from a high protective tariff ? What do they produce that is protected ? And on the other hand do do they not pay more for all classes of manufactured articles used than they otherwise would under a low tariff ? The same may be said of thousands of other people in Montana. The subject of tariff reform is there fore one of vital interest to every citizen in the state, and it is the duty of every citizen to vote for it this fall. INTERBSTING, INDEEI). The capital situation in Butte has taken a curious turn so far as the sup port of the local newspapers is con Jerned, It we remember rightly the Inter Mountain was the first paper to some out squarely for Butte for the cap ital, in double leaded brevier. For a time it made a very pretty fight in ad vocating the advantages of Butte largely by abusing Helena. But somebody seems to have touched its spinal column for though it has not ceased to abuse Helena, it no longer has anything to say in praise of Butte. The only ex planation suggested is that past favors are being returned. We now anxiously await the Inter Mountain's announce ment of its choice for the capital. Does it favor Helena, Boulder, Anaconda, Deer Lodge or Bozeman? On the other hand, the esteemed Miner despite the allurements held out by the Anaconda Standard, insists that Butte should have the capital, though it acknowledges the friendly feeling be tween Butte and Anaconda to a greater degree than was apparent in the last spring election in the big camp. Now it believes that when the proper time time comes for decisive action Ana 2onda, the offspring of Butte, will turn in and help out the mother camp. We shall, however, be greatly surprised if this occurs. It is a queer combination all around, and we think the newspapers and good ritizens of Butte may well inquire 'Where they are at?" It they fail to receive answer to their, inquiry, as we anticipate, there is only one thing left for them to do: vote for Helena, the ctty which offers more and better ad vantages for the capital than are pos sessed by any other town in the state. MR. HILiL AND THE CAPITAL. 'the Great Northern Preastdet Not Aldlia Any Contesteat. Interview in Great Falls Tribune: "How far is the track laid west to Spokane Falls?" "Track reaches the Columbia river the middle of this week, and from the west coast the track is laid about forty-five iiles, leaving about 112 miles to lay." "At what time do you expect the track will be completed?" "The grade will be substantially finished atbout the first of November, and we hope to have the track connected about the mid of November." "When do you expect to put on regular t ains?" "Commercial trains will be put on as soon as the track is thoroughly ballasted and in good condition for operation." "I suppose you find a good deal of polit ical excitement in Montana?" "I have not been where this political ex citement has reached me." "May I ask if youear company has any in terest in the political campaign this fall?" "None whatever. The railway company is only interested in good laws and their proper enforcement. It is the policy of the company at all times and places to keep onat of politics." "Has )our company any interest in the location of the capital of Montana?" "No sir. This s a matter that effects the oeople of Montana, and I assume they are eutirely competent to settle it for them selves. The only reason the company would have for interference in such a matter would be in defense of its property or busi ness, and we trust this occasion will never arise."
