PLACE, yourself on record for Helena. GIvs your time to Heolena until after Nov. 8. A VOTE for Bozeman is a vote for An aconda. Now then, altogether in a long and strong pull for Helena. WIrt, the name of this state be changed to Anaconda? Not this year. "I no not believe the new road will be built west of Anaconda."--James J. Hill. THE man who would sell his vote on the capital question would sell his birth right. A VOTE for Grover Cleveland is a strike at the men who are robbing the family larder. THE last spike in the Butte, Ana conda & Boomerang road will be driven by the people next week. VOTE as you would shoot against men who are stealing your wages. Vote against the eastern tariff robbers. IT will be Helena first and Anaconda or Butte second. The interest now centers on the fight for second place. No good democrat will scratch a single democratic candidate. No good candi date will neglect the interests of his fol low candidates. "THE McKinley bill was passed in the interests of the favored class and not for the benefit of the whole people."--Judge W. Q. Gresham. THE esteemed Inter-Mountain's office is somewhere between the devil and the deep sea. After election it will return to the old stand. THE coronation of the copper-crowned czar, reproduced from the original in a beautifully tinted heliograph, will be given to every voter for Anaconda. CHortr.Es S. IARTMAN will never have an opportunity to vote against a labor bill min congress. The workingmen of Montana will not have it that way. WARR.EN A. GIL.,,ETF. having opposed an eight-hour bill in the constitutional convention would be found against a similar measure in the state senate. Turae is no nse in mincing matters any lonser.-Anaconda Standard; Quite right. \Vill the capital be lo- I cated by the czar or the people of Mon tana? IlOZEMAN's corrupt bargain with Ana conda has lost her eastern Montana. The voters of the east side do not pro pose to be sold like sheep to a west side zorporation. Al, honest mon should fuse next Tuesday and forever remove from pub lic life that shameless instrument of fraul, Henry N. Blake. He must be landed to stay. ENTueSIA.sM over the lutte, Ana conda & Ihusted R. 1. is confined to the esteemed Standard's otlice. The BIutte papers have not yet heard of the articles of incorporation. WHEt.N Grover Cleveland was president he removed a 'nited States district at torney for neglect of hil official duties and taking the stumIp. Thogentleman's nlame was nIott We heIe. Ev the way, what has becone of Henri Jeminii Iaskell? Is he running for any thing this year? We see his name oc casionally on the tickets standing at the head of our weekly exchanges. No friend of honest labor will vote for the man who favored convict labor and IPinkertonism in the constitutional con vention. RIickards will therefore be beaten by a treumsndous majority. LoST: My adopted child, Anacondla, strayed away last week and is lost in tihe smoke somewhere between the Wake Up-Jim and the Colorado smelter. Lib ,ral reward. Address, M. D. Anaconda, Mlout. 'VE bespeak for Miss Ella Knowles, people's party candidate for attorney general, one of lHelena's largest and best behlavedl audiences to-night. Of all the candidates or speakers in the preselnt campaign' she has traveled the most miles and done the most w6rk. She has done much for her sex in damonstratinj that women need ask no odds in politic from the other sex, and she could give pointers to old campaigners in many re speoos. "OuR labor is honorable in the eyes ol every American citizen; and as it lies al the very foundation of our development and progress, it is entitled without at feotation or hypocrisy, to the utmost re gard."--Grover Cleveland. IT was in "The Idylls of the King" that it was said: "I bribed with large promises the men who served about my person." This will also be written in the forth coming "Idylls of the Czar." LvT us have a square deal.-Inter-Moun tain. We didn't suppose you cared whether It was square, round, oblong, elliptical. rectangular or rhomboidial, so long as it was a deal. Anything to get to the sen ate. LEWIS AND CLARKE county will give a clean plurality for every man on the democratic ticket from president to constable. If our sister counties do as well, relatively, we shall carry the state by three thousand to five thousand plu rality. IF the Inter Mountain hadn't been so busy propelling Lee Mantle's senatorial boom among the snags, it would have have boon able before this time to de cide between Anaconda and Butte for the capital. No man can have two masters. He cannot serve the people and Mammon. Tus meeting at Ming's opera house last evening aught to remove any doubts as to the enthusiasm of the Lewis and Clarke democracy. It was the greatest demonstration of the campaign. Ex Gov. Hauser brought good news from New York; Congressman Dixon gave a clear analytical review of the work of the last congress; Gov. Toole made a speech bristling with good points, while Prof. Mahony's first appearance in Hel ena made for him a most favorable im pression. There was no limit to the cheers and applause which greeted and rewarded all speakers. It was in all re spects a gathering to be remembered in the history of Montana politics. TIIERE isn't a building in Anaconda in which the legislature could meet or the state officers be provided with accommo lations. Of course "The Works" could shut down every winter for the sixty lays during which the legislature is in session and the legislative assembly :ould thus enjoy the hospitality of Mr. J. B. Haggin, of New York, and Mr. Lloyd Tevis, of San Francisco, but there would be some members who would have a hlittle delicacy about accepting such favors from a corporation, for or igainst which they might be called upon to enact legislation. Perhaps, however, the depot of the Butte, Anaconda & Hindostan railroad could be secured for the session. At any rate, it is just as well to think about these things now. THE democrats of old Madison are bringing to a close a vigorous, well-con 3ucted campaign, with every promise that victory will be its fruition. They started right by nominating a ticket strong at every point, one that has stead ily grown in favor. We confidently look to see the interests of the county cared for in the legislature by M. D. Jelfers and Patrick Carney, two solid and worthy citizens who will ably represent their constituency. For county com missioners James McAllister, J. J. Kohls and Amos Eastman are men who will faithfully care for the county's business. William Marr, for clerk of the district court, R. N. Hawk ins, for clerk and recorder, Henry S. Gilbert, for county treasurer, Joe Hamines, for sheriff, W.F. McFarland. for superintendent of schools, W. J. Fore man, for assessor, and W. A. Clark for county attorney, aro the other names on the ticket and all commend them selves to the thoughtful and discrim inating voter. We shall be surprised if the entire ticket dhes not win. CRIMINAL HRIHERY. A correspondent writes from Billings: 'Many voters here are taking BIozeman town lots under conditions which will induce them to vote for that town for the capital. One citizen with whom I have talked argued that while this amy be a form of bribery it is not really an offense under the laws of the state, be cause the statutes say 'That no person who shall be a candidate for any ollice shall pay or contribute either directly or indirectly any money or other valu able thing,' etc. He contends that the law does not apply to the capital con test, lut only to candlidates for office. I holid othorwise. Will THIE INyEsi'NIi tNT kindly give us the law on the sub joct ?" The Bozoman prposition is bribery p)ure and sinlmple under our laws. 'IlThe land sharks can be inlic:tudl by any grand jury for their corrulpt offers. sec tion 1,;5 osf the Crnliled Statutes says: "No person shall purchase or attempt to purchase either with mnoney or any other valuable thing the vote of any elector of the staite of Mointana." Seeu tion 1,0i6 says: "No elector of the tor ritory of Montana shall sell or aIttempt to sell, either for money or any othier valuable thing, Iis vote to any person whatever." Section 1,0i(;i says: "l Evry person violating either Sectioin I,(i5 or I,0ls of this chapter, or bioth, shall be deemed guilty of a missldeneanor, and up,,n conviction thtereoif, shall ble sub ject to a fine of rnot less than one hun dred dollars, nor moure than five hundred lollars, and to imnlrisonment in the pen. itentiary for not less tthan three months, nor more than one year, or both, or either, at the discretion of the court" All the above laws were ipassed before the act providing for the submission of the qluestion of the permanent location of the sent of government was adopted. But to make sure that the vote on the capital question shoulu not be attendeds by such wholesale corruption of the frsancl ise its Anacondsa is undertaking with the copper company's boodle andi Bozeman with its one-dollar town lots, the legislature expressly provided ii Section 4 of that act, as followse "Ever; act or acts now by law made punlshgbl, as a crime when committed at the gle oral election, with reference to the gen oral election ballita or the general ale. tion itself, or pny of the details con nected therewith, shall . equally,. b deemed a crime, and punished in the manner when committed with referenoc to the ballots or voting or returns o election herein provided for as to the lo nation of the permanent seat of govern. ment, and all proviesions of the general election law not inconsistent with the purposes of this noact shall be deemed applicable hereto." If a man offers you a copper com pany's dollars or a Bozeman lot for your vote for the capital, knock him down and hand him over to the police, just ai unhesitatingly as you would do if he offered to bribe you to vote for preeldeni of the United States. One is as muo. a bribe as the other, and the man whc offers it, and the man who acoepts it, are equally criminals under the law. GOOD MEN FOR PUBLIC TRUSTS. Place a cross opposite the name of every candidate on the democratic ticket. For district court judges vote fox Horace R. Buck and T. E. Crutoher, honest men, and lawyers thoroughly equipped for judicial duties; stand to gether for Charles D. Curtis, a pioneer citizen without reproach, and thoroughly fitted for the sheriff's duties; give your vote to Denver P. Dayton, a brightyoung man faithful at all times; help Peter M. Collins, long a trusted employe of a big corporation and one who will keep the records of the clerk and recorder's office straight; be assured that the treasurer's accounts will be correct at the end of every quarter by voting for another bright, honest and capable young man, Clarence B. Garrett; determine to protect the public from criminals by re-electing that brilliant, capable and trustworthy county attorney, C. B. Nolan; show your indorsement of an admirable adminis tration by re-electing Miss C. L. Turn ley as superintendent of public schools; vote for William J. Bickett, because un der his charge the assessments will be made without fear or favor; support Sol Poznanski for auditor, and the figures will be found correct when the reports are made; get your friends to vote for F. M. Straub if you want a clean record in the public administrator's oflice; lend your aid to the candidacy of Dr. T. H. Pleasants for you know he will make a satisfactory coroner; cast your ballots for John W. Wade, whose reputation as an engineer is second to none; mass yourselves solid for Elizur Beach, Will iam Muth and Sam Langhorne and you will elect three county commissioners whose names alone carry evidence of ca pability, honesty and fidelity. Vote for all these men and the differ ent departments of Lewis & Clarke zounty's business will be conducted to the satisfaction of every citizen and tax payer. VOTE AGAINST YOUK ENEMIES. If the laboring men of this state are true to their interests, if they really de sire legislation favorable to their cause, If they mean to work only for candi lates who are friendly to the rights of honest toil they will vote solidly against John Ezra Rickards and Charles Stil letto Hlartman. Why? Because Mr. Rickards in the consti tutional convention made an open and snergetio fight against a clause prohib uting convict labor. Because in the same body he opposed with the same activity a clause forbid ng the entrance into this state of Pink erton guards. Because Charles S. Hartman in the constitutional convention moved to table a measure fixing eight hours as a day's work on all labor for the state, county or municipality. Because Charles S. lHartman favored an educational qualification for voters, and thus struck a vicious blow at an equal and honest franchise. Both of these men must be beaten, if the laboring men of this state expect to elect men who will stand by their rights. LOOKING FORWARD. [From the Montana ('ourt Journal. Oct 17, 1905.1 "What is the weather to-day." growled the one man turning from a restless sleep to the attendant who was brushing flies rom the enameled coneh. "The gathering clouds, sire, portend rain. lhe winds from the west breathe an icy chill and" "What's that, what's that," roars the awakened man. "Didn't I tell yez last night 1 wanted the weather fine to-day and don't I have my own way, lay. Now yez order the weather changed and then com mit suicide for not obering me orders." Another enunciater is touched and the cadi appears before his highness. "How many of our people were up last night aftsr the six o'clock curfew rang?" "Twenty, sire, who are very penitent this morning. "Never mind. Ton lasnehes for each man of them and out of town they go to-nigh~t or off goes your head. D)o yoz here? Now go for I have to shut down a mine or two to-day." "Yes sire," replies the departing cmdl. The one-man town stirs from its elumbers; the smoke cnrds slowly from the "works" as though in fear and then flys swiftly over the hilltops; the awakened birds flit softly from limb to limb while their songs are hashed by some strangle spell; the village dogs creep from ths alley ways, look hesitatiIngly at the works and slink away to their mates. Soon the white fis, wafts from the oztr's palace, the draw brlire lowers and then the henchmen aps pear on the villase square. 'lhe batcher saw a frown on the onen man's face last night and wonders whethsr 'tis safe to kill a steer this morning. The viillage innkeeper is a trembling, his brain afname with horrible doubts. Will the one rnan's steak be overdone? Forooth 'tie serioas for a cook's mristake means banish ment. The village newspaper arrives. A sood newspaper it is, but the revenne is small, for it is given away. No osubscribor knows whether the one man will let it come out the next (lsay. whether he will cut It down to a semi-weekly or make it into an almanao. Trhis morning it is rumored that the weather is not pleasing to his highness and son the printers decide to take chances of a thirty days shut down and shoot craps. lThe day wears on. ''The trains comn in and out of the village depot and before noon there s a amoe coaddeat feeling. The one man actually smiled an hour be fore and the village barber telle the ateeet oar oonductor that he thinkshe the town will last until the next morniag. The eon duotor tells a polioeman that he hopes the barber is right. At nightfall thoesitation haunot changed and when the curfew bell rings the end of another day in the one man town is reached. All retire to bed oxept the one man. He can stay awake as long as he pleases for the one man town belongs to him. APPOINTMENTS OF SPEAKERS.
