POLLS close at six o'clock to-night! IT is all over to-day. Vote early and get it off your mind. A VOTE for Bozeman is a vote for Marcus Daly for boss of Montana. Do you want him? THE election prophet is a back num ber. The fellow we are interested in is the man who gets his returns first to this office to-night. Miss HELENA and Miss Ella are two popular young ladies in this voting con test. We think Miss Helena will lead by several thousand. Junitus ,GLAmorus will want to be a candidate for something next spring. Knock him out of the sheriff's office to day, so that he will be eligible. VoTE for Cleveland and lower taxes. Vote to put your money in your own pocket instead of in the purse of a rich nmainufacturer, of tihe HIomestead variety. TiHe Australian ballot tlhis year is ex ceedingly long.

DON'T vote for anybody for represen tative who will aid in sending the War horse to the senate, for heaven's satke! Vote unanimously to keep hirn out. T'Ihe only way to do this is to vote for Robert B. Smith, Bach, Comley, David son, Brown, Dudley, Murphy and Li dolph for representatives, and for Dr. Steele for the senate.

(Giv your vote .to Collins to-day and shot that you stand by your friends. You can vote much faster if you d, not scratch your ticket. The demc so oratio ticket was not put up to b t scratched.

Vote it straight from top ti bottom. BEACH, Langihore and Mluth are the men that the business community wants for county commisssioners. These of flees have nothing to do with politicE and they should be elected regardless of party lines for the sake of the best interests of the county. Our county affairs are in excellent shape. Beach, Langhorne and Muth will keep them straight. WE understand that the republicans are circulating a campaign roorback that Prince Russell will come back to Montana to live, if Harrison is not re elected, and he will stay away; if success perches on the Harrison banner. That is a strong inducement, of course, to vote for Harrison, but don't be tempted. Vote for Cleveland and reduce the prince to the ranks. As usual THE INDEPENDENT will get the news, the first news, all the news, the unbiased news, and bulletin it promptly to-night. It will be straight news, free from partisan warping or coloring, and it will be put upon the boards as it comes along whether good, bad or indifferent, from our point of view. Nothing shall be held back. Out it goes as soon as it is received, and it will not be long in getting here either, for we have our special wires running direct into the office and correspondents in every part of the country serving us with the returns. The Australian bal lot will make slow work in some cases, but it will be a great night for Montana and THE INDEPENDENT invites you to form one of the multitude that will pack Broadway from our counting room door to Main street, and read our illumi nated returns. A REMARKABLE UAMIPAIGN. The canvass which has just closed will long be remembered as one of the most quiet and apathetic contests in our po litical history. The complete absence of any excitement or unusual demon stration has been variously explained. Some think they see the beginning of a new era in our politics which is to be marked by a calm and thoughtful dis cussion, and the elimination of pyro technics and parades. Others attribute the tluietude of the present canvass to the fact that old candidates, not one of whom was the choice of the majority of his own party, and old issues which had been fought over before, were again.pre sented. Probably both causes had something to do with the lack of inter est and enthusiasm among the people. There is little doubt that had the re publicans nominated Blaine, and the democrats Hill or Boles, we should have seen a hot and fiercely fought campaign and the public mind aroused to a high pitch. Had new questions been before the people, even with the old candi dates, the discussion would have been livelier and the public meetings larger. Had 'the two parties taken opposite sides of the silver question, too, we should have had a bitter sectional tight with the south and west arrayed against the east. Another reason for the indifference we have witnessed as to the outcome this year possibly may be found in the growing weariness of our people with frequent elections. We believe it would have pleased a great majority of the American pieople it they had not been compelled to go through the agitations of a presidential election at this timne. l'ractically our presidential contests are almost unending. More than a year be fore the president's term expires the skirmishing preliminary to the next na tional convention begins. The candi dates are before the people for nearly six months prior to election lday. Nearly half a year intervenes between the eleo tion and the inaugu ration -a period of anxiety and uncertainty. And the aver age president does not reach tihe middlu of his term before he begins to ligure onl Sa renomination. We believe there wil! surely be a growing deiiimanid for a six year term for the president and for his non-oligibllity to re-election. lThe country has not forgotten the scandalous use of power iandrl patronage that brought about the defeat of Blaine last June and the re lnominatioin of the present incumbent of I the oflice in spite of the dissatisfaction that his administration had given to the majority of his own ipaLrty. Mr. Cloeve I land's renomiination in 18H88 was perhaps exceptional in this respcrt, as his forc ing of the tariff slsue, a few montls bie fore the convention assemlbledl, nlm~le hIis nominlation a logical seqlulnco, andl he did not find it neceesary to ernplloy the arts of paltronage. But it dlo)es inot need argnument to convince any thinlk ing man tllhat a piresident would be less likely to yield to the allurements of power, and would dilscllharge hiis dlutit, mlore fearlessly, it tbhe prize of ronolli lnation were not dangling before his eyes. We have seen in many of the states a tendency to lengthenou the ternms of their governors. New York a few years ago extended the terra of her ex ecutive from two years to three; 'enn sylvania did the same. New Jersey gives her governor a three-years term and makes him ineligible to re-election. ''he new states have generally given longer terms to their governors than tho an old. In Mohitana the governor el.te o this year serves four years, f 0 The objection has been made 4~t long tenures of oftloe are uadem6oor.i and savor of the spirit of federalian n There is no force to that objectiot, ft 9 the check upon the executive is itun In the legislature, ona brethl of hbic is, and should be, subject to frequec change. The people have it it 'gi power every two years to chbuk a Ad ministrative policy they do not .lik We have a signal instance of this in th, political revolution of 1890, midway ii Mr. Harrison's term. The people dic not approve of the force bill and highe taxation and drove out of power, in one branch of congress, the party of thi administration, and installed in its place a powerful opposition majority which holds office during the rest o Mr. Harrison's term and serves as a complete obstruction to the policy he proposed. The temper of the people, as maui tested in the canvass this year, indloates clearly that they were not eager to entol into a contest for a change of the presi dency, and that they would have been satisfied to give Mr. Harrison two years more, provided there was a cons'itu tional barrier to his renomination. We should not then have seen the present dicgraceful scramble of the officeholders for his re-election, and with ambition for power removed he would have made a better president in the closing months of his administration. One term, six yearsl Let us have the question thoroughly agitated, and ape if we cannot improve on our present sye tem. THE NOVEMBER ATLANTIC. Mr. George Edward Woodberry, in his admirable paper on John Greenleaf Whit tier, has contributed perhaps the ablest critical review on Whitties's place in liter ature which either has appeared or will ap pear; and as is fitting in the pages of the Atlantic, to which Whittier has been so constant a contributor, Dr. Holmes has contributed a poem to his memory. The feeling which the Autoelat shows in these verses is so real that one forgets their poetic form, and they seem but the natural out pouring of the affection of a brother poet. Elizabeth Stuart Phelps has also a touching poem on Whittier, which was written as he lay dying. An installment of Mrs. Deland's "Story of a Child" is given; and certainly no more sympathetic picture of the hopes and rears and temptations of childhood has ever bton written than these chronicles of the adven tures.of Ellen; nor has a more idyllic elderly courtship been pictured that that of Mr. Tommy Dove and Miss Jane. Mr. W. ienry Winslow contributes a paper on Mr. Jolley Allen, a revolutionary, worthy and loyalist whose misfortunes lead one to consider a little that olass of persons of the revolution who thought that right was on their side, although victory 'ws not. Dr. Hale's paper, in his series on "A. New Eng land Boyhood," is devoted to social rela tions and gives an interesting aoiount of hie religious training at the Brattle street church. He also sketches the lecture sys tem, tea parties and the fire department of old Boston days. So that it will be seen that his paper is Inclusive as to its subjects. A short story in two parts by Margaret Collier Graham, called " The Withrow Water Right;" chapters of Mr. Crawford's "Don Orsino;" an able unsigned political essay on "The Two Programmes of 1892;" a paper by Samuel W. Dike on "Sociology in the Higher Education of Woman;" a paper on Breton folk-songs, by Theodore Bacon, with translations, and a poem by Lizette Woodworth Reese are among the other attractions of the number.

Several changes in the rates for tele graphic messages made by the Western Union company, which went into effect on Oct. 1, have escaped much notice, exeept among those who have considerable tele graphing to do, and to whom the slightest reduction in rates means great saving of ex rense. 'Ihe most important change which has been made is the manner of charging for numbers. Formerly, in a number, every figure was counted as one woed, but under the new system figures, letters, commas, points and bars of division, or any combination thereof (as in cipher messages), are counted three figures, letters, or signs to the word. To prevent liability to error, numbers and amounts should be written in words, and this makes no diffe ence in the charges. Other changes which have been made are in referenos to the body of a message where dictionary words, initial letters, surnames of persons, names of cities, towns. villages, states or territories, or namues of the Cana dian provinces ere counted and charged for as only one word, while in the names of counties and countries all the words are counted. Thnus the names of cities and towns, as New York, ht. Louis, White Plains, count only as one word each, while New York county is ohariged for as three words.
