If it appears that Deer Lodge cannot win, situated as we are, with a triangular west side fight or our hands, we can do little less that support Helena. Anaconda is making a strong fight. We, of Deer Lodge, can do little less than support Helena. The contest has developed situations which have narrowed down the fight to be tween the cities of Anaconda and Hel ena. In justice to ourselves we cannot consistently support a "one-man town." Anaconda is a one-man town. It is Marcus Daly's town. Deer Lodge was crowded out of the capital race by Ana conda. The New Northwest has been loath to take any position that would indicate it was not a Deer Lodge advo cate. The time has arrived when we must either use our votes to the best advantage or throw them wholly away. Since Deer Lodge is practically out of the capital race, the readers of the New Northwest who have a voice and a vote in the selection of the capital location would better use their sound judgment by voting for Helena.-Deer Lodge New Northwest, Nov. 5. AT THE FINISH. It is Helena and Anaoonda on the home stretch! Butte has made a gallant struggle for second place, but Anaconda boodle has been poured out like water and Butte's natural strength has been undermined and her vote drawn away. She will have third place- -which is no place at all. Fourth place will go to Bozeman, the beautiful and ousted. Theland sharks, who are taking the name of the Gallatin city in vain, do not care. They have Marcus Daly's money in their pockets and thi, One Man is satisfied, too, be cause the vote drawn to Bozeman from eastern Montana helps Anaconda to keep the contest open for another two years. Fifth place, the foot of the class, is re served for Great Falls and her vote for herself will be local pride misplaced. Helena or Anaconda! That is the way it narrows down for to-morrow's test. Between these two every voter must choose. They will lead on the first ballot and, if another trial is necessary, two years hence, they will be the only two competitors, Which will you have--a town depend ent on a single mine, where the store and the hotel and the newspaper and the smelter and the water supply and the lights are run aul regulated by one man, who is autocrat of the village, or a city built and owned by 18,000 prosper ous people each a sovereign, in which all industries are represented, where no man dictates to all the riht, where labor gets itsrights, where shut-downs are unknown and where bossism, a thing so detested by every American citizen, is not tolerated in any form? Which will you have-a one-man town, or a town that belongs to the peo ple that live in it ? Which will you have-a town where the laborer is paid full price, where labor iunions abound and thrive--or a town where a powerful corporation scales dlown wages at its will, shuts downt work to force its men to terms? Which will you have-- a town that is a railroad center, the center of popula tion --or a town that is neither, and which could not accommodate the seat of governmennt if it got it ? Think over this imatter carefully to night, if you lhavire hlithlerto been indif ferent to the content, and see if you do not agree with us tlhait not only las no reason ever ibocn adivsncu.el for renorving the capital from lelena, but that ii its cenitral location, its railroad and hotel facilities, its coivenienco of access, its healthfulness of olimate, its buildings, its freedom from every objctionabie feature- Hlelena is now, an it always has been, the natural place for the capi tal of the state. Then go to the polls to-morro-w rlorning an. vote: HELENA X. liOOtR AYh Now, boys, (republican boys, we mearl) fall in! Why hesitate longer? Mr. ii. W. 'Child, of Yellowstone IPatrk, has return ed to, Helena from Noew York surcharged cith enthusiasm, and thus whoops it up in the Helena Journal (Russell I. Slirrison, ipresident): lyv some good fortune the son of the Iresi-.et of the IUnited States is a citi e n :f Montanai; his whole interest is here, and lie is for Montana lirst last andl all the time. This gives the presi 1 dent something more than an offiloial in sight into Montana's needs, and we car I always count on his sympathy. Mon. tana will probably never strike such a fortunate combination of ciroumstancei again. Do the people of Montana wani to set these people aside and put soms one else in the White house, who won't know or care whether Montana is on the trail to Alaska or on the coast of Mox ico?" Russell B. and Father! No indeed, neither Montana nor any other state will ever strike such a fortunate combi nation. Coats off, boys, if you want tc keep Montana in the family. This "will give the president more than an official insight into Montana's needs," you bet iyour life. It will give him a business insight into more side-snaps than you ever dreamed of--a Yellowstone Park site--a Sander's ranch site--a military post site.--but we trust no more such unpleasant hind-sights as that pro sented by that cattle company of fra grant memory. Yes, boys, whoop her up! There's lots of insight in it, on the side. Hurrah for Bon and li.usell II. IHurrah for 1 hitelaw and Baby McKea Four years more of insight would fix us all. But if you want to wager any thing on the result, bet your pile on the proposition that there won't be any more insight for the family-not by a Mis souri dam sitel THIS MAN tar a Ihr DEFE ATInD. John Ezra Rickards, a Pharisee in pol itics, a Judas in office, a falsitier of rec ords, the tool and apologist of fraud, asks the people of Montana for their highest oficial gift. To win this honor he has traversed the state from one end to the other employing methods charac teristic of his entire career in public and in office. Hle does not use these arti fices at random; he makes dissimulation a study and in his self-delusion believes that men are ignorant enough to believe him. Ilis public character, if that word may be used in this instance, is a singu lar unity of all elements most offensive to honest-minded men, and we believe that by the result of to-mdrrow's eleo tion the voters of this state will show their estimate of this man by forever re tiring him from public view. Regard less of political lines or personal am bitions, it is the plain duty of every Montanian true to his citizenship to save the honor of the state by prevent- ing this man's succession to its executive office. We have sufficient faith in Mon tana manhood to believe that this will be done, but it must be done with an avenging band. Perhaps, the voter who does not know the record of this con scienceless aspirant fancies this to be what is commonly called "partisan vitu peration." Let us look at the record and see if this candidate is rightly de fined. In October, 1889, he was elected to preside over a new senate of a new state and which was to be organized as a now body entirely independent of territorial connections or precedents. Of the six teen senators seven were democrats and seven republicans. The seven re republicans met and took the oath of office at the appointed time. Twenty four days later the democratic senators did likewise, after an expressed and stipulated agreement with the lieuten ant-governor and the republicans that no partisan advantages were to be taken from this action. Hardly had the agree ment been made before the king conspi rator, Sanders, set his scheming brain into action to find a way to violate this compact. It was quickly evolved but he needod a plastic form for the mould. Where could he find a weakling mor6 knavish or more pliable in his hands than Rickards? Rickards answered all requirements for the work and was will ing to bo the tool, and was therefore carefully rehearsed by the Warhorse for his dastardly work. Three days later or on I ec. 19, 1889, fourteen senators meot, McNamara and Brown being paired. Senator Hedges moved that the senate proceed to the election of ollicers, the motion was seo onded. but before It was announced by the presiding offlicer, Senator Baker, of Choteau, called for the ayes and noes, the only proper method to determine whether a quorumn was present and vo ting. Thein came the famious ruling which was truthfully descriobed as de :iding that seven was a majority of four teen. As aill present will rmemember, Itickards arose, and in a hesitating way, said: "In the absence of rules it is not nec esssary to call for ayes and noes." Senator l'arberry immediately called attention to section 10, airticle 5, of the constitution, which says that the major ity of each house shall constitute a luorum to do busines. The presiding ufli er said that eas true after organiza tion and insisted on his proevious rulng. In defiance of everything a ballot was taken and by thIe votes of seven repub lican senators oni a resolution of Senator Fisiher tihe milnor oflicers of that body wore illegally chosen. It was the baseut outrage ever known in the history of parliamontary armsern hlages and was VwithIOUt the sOmllllance of authority. When asked for authority the lieutenant govornor reflrred to a passage in Culshing's Manual which had no hearing whatever on the question in hand. \lWhen hle says as i, dlid at the autlitorium Saturday evening that ihe re foerred at the tinme to two souetiots in time revised statutes for authority he tills a' cluancut and nmalicious lie. lie neveor lid anything of tihe sort. Siupplose, however, that hle lid maklo those refer ences. T'hese ,'oncerneld onvly thel prI cedtnre in the old territorial uouncil anil hllad nlo m,ro connnection withi the first oenate of MBontana tlndlr statehood than tihe edicts of an oriental rajah. Thelire was but one right method ti follow and that was tihat time lihoniored ruling sacred to ull piarliamenitary bodies of dleteriiining a qillrumrl Irenit aind voting by calling for the nyes and noues. Any other ruling was a villainous as sumlption of authority whioh never ex isted anid a disregard of all justice anIl precedents. A cowardly knave who woultl knowingly follow this Couirse would hesitate at no larliarmentiiry out rage to be accomillishlCd by his assist amice. Oni one occasion when James L. hllaine was speakenrof the house of represenl tives he was naked to deolare that men bern who were present and did not vot should be counted in order to make quorum. "No." esal he, "the respnastbility is o the majinrity party to have a quorea pire out, The mnoaenut you clothe you peraker with power to eo behind the rol owit and aasumen that there is a querns in the hail, why, gentlettoen, yea ste.a on the very, brink are voleano." ' Rickards not only did this but web farther in the same direction. On Jar 16 the democrats happened to be in the majority at the evening session. Sena tor lHotfman introduced a resolutioa making it the sense of the senate tha' no more business te tranacoted until the controversy between the lowe. houses was settled and Senator Hedgel added that it was unsafe to proceet with legislation. What, did tRickards do? He simply ruled the resolution out ol order and then a demooratio senatoi moved for an appeal from his decision What did Rickards do, then? lie ruled that it was out of order to ep peial front til decision. These are facts to be passed upon by the voters of Montana to-morrow in ren dering judgmenton this man. It wad not only a case of treachery to agree noents, violation of precedents and dis honesty to principles but a straight out blow to every inherent right of pet'sonal freedom carried with the right of fran ihise. There was no excuse for it. The oniy one attempted was the lie whith which Rickards opened his campaign when he said that his ruling was en dorsed by a United States supreme court decision 'sustaining Reed's ruling. This was manifestly absurd. The house of representatives was a regularly organized body working under rules when Reed ruled. The Montana senate was not organ ized and had no rules when Rickards ruled. The house of representatives by a ma jority adopted Reed's ruling. The Montana senate never adopted Rickards' ruling by a majority. Finally the United States supreme court decided simply and solely that the house of representatives had the right to make its own rules. This is the part of Mr. Riokards in culminating the great fraud of Precinct 34 and in many respects it is the most disgraceful of all. It should throw enough votes against his candid oy to defeat him by the heaviest majority ever known in Montana. His record, as a demagogue on the labor question is found in the office of the secretary of itate and in his public speeches. How is opposed the convict labor and the Pinkerton clauses in the constitution is very well known and this opposition he ans not dared to deny. He only says hat he will do so and so if elected gov mrnor. Nevertheless he must stand on tis records as a member of the consti tutional convention and as presiding )flicer of the first senate--- And he must be beaten on these records. IIOZEMAN A SCAB TOWN. All workingrnen, wherever found and n whatever industry employed, should rote to keep the capital away from Bozeman. d It is a scab town. Labor unions are frozen out there. [hey are not wanted. Wages are way )elow union rates-the lowest paid in he state. The leading restaurants are run by Dbinamen who employ white girls for vaiters. Keep clear of it ! It is a fit partner for Anaconda, a own whose owners strangled the eight lour law in the legislature and which las cut miners' wages a dollar a day. WITH characteristic gall the Warhorse ectures the republican party of Lewis and Clarke for its lack of loyalty. If he vill stady the election figures of the last twenty years he will strike the remark ible coincidence that this disloyalty is aost violent in its manifestations when te is a candidate. IT is between Helena and Anaconda etween the peoplo and a corrupt cor uoration--botween a republican formn of governientet and a one-man tyranny. Which will you have? TIlE Warhorse says he finds it difflcnlt to locate the democratic party. It will locate, though, all the salme as the mill tary post, in spite of the opposition of the Sanders family.
