Helena, Sept. 13. 1898.
SoME of these days the HIon. Leo
Mantle will discover that ingratitude is
the worst trait in a public man.
As wa understand it, Gov. Rickards'
posltion is just this: He positively re
fuses to do his duty lest the legislature
might fail to do its duty.
IT is high time we had an end to
fraudulent exhibitions of pugilism in
Helena, or, for that matter, to pugilistio
exhibitions of any sort from the opera
THE original "green goods" man died
in New York on Tuesday. He leaves
numerous successors and the crop of
investors in his wares remains peren
nially green and ever fresh.
HE doubted his right to appoint, but
he appointed. He doubts whether the
legislature would elect, he says, and so
he won't call it together. If the chance
was worth taking in the one case, why
not in the other?
THAT $2,500 paid to Lee Mantle for
contesting for a seat in the senate to
which he wasn't eligible would just
about pay the cost of an extra session
of the legislature. Perhaps if it were
tendered to Gov. Rickards for that pur
pose he would issue the call.
WITH all the varied and wonderful
ability of the newspaper press of New
York it is singular there is not on any
journal in the metropolis a writer on
finance of recognized authority. Mat
thew Marshall. of the Sun, writes
beautiful Addisonian English, but he is
a wild crank.
TEE Butte Inter Mountain gets
greatly excited, not to say abusive, over
its alleged discovery that Gov. Hlauser
has gone to Washington to secure an
extra session of the Montana legisla
ture. We hardly credit him with so
little sagacity. If he wanted to secure
an extra session he would go where the
Inter Mountain goes for its instructions
THE commissioner of internal revenue
has issued instructions to collectors
that will make times lively for some of
the national banks, particularly those
in New York. The commissioner rules
that certificates of deposit payable in
the money or currency of the United
States and paid out and used for circu
lation "in lieu of money of the United
States" are taxable at 10 per cent on
the dollar, the same as state bank cir
culation. Whether or not the clearing
house certificates issued by the New
York banks fall within this category is
not stated, but some of the treasury
officials aseem to think they do.
THE attempt to make the democratic
party responsible for bad times and to
attribute all our evils to threatened
tariff legislation Is confined to a few dis
honest republicans like Thomas II
Reed. The broader-minded republican
leaders, and the republican newspapers
of highest standing, do not stoop to this
kind of misrepresentation. The Boston
Transcript is a republican newsonaper of
the latter sort. It calls attention to the
fact that suspended banks, mercantile
houses and mills are resuming as proof
thut the tariff question has nothing to
do with the monetary troubles, and
adds; "We think that all mren save the
most extreme and narrow partisans will
agree that it is not patriotio to under
take to make party capital out of the
country's sufferings instead of devoting
their best energies toward an unparti
san solution of the difliculty." We coim
mend this honest utterance to the llel
ena Ilerald and Butteo inter Mountain.

This would be more of a coneusion to

gold standard men would be willing to
grant, and it is doubtful if the house
I would agree to it.
RAILRoAD travel all over the country
has increased wonderfully in Septem
ber, in spite of the predictions of saga
oious railroad men, who have been our
tailing train service to a point that oo
cesions serious inconvenience to the
traveling public. A Boston man who
tried to get out of that oty the other
day found that he could not get sleep
ing car accommodations for a family
party without waiting at least three
days. The Transcript, in speaking of
this mnstance, says:
This foot teahbes tha t is the easiest
thing in the world to bring dulness into
business by unceasina iteration that busi
ness is dull, as a man ean bring on himself
about any shock that flesh is heir to by
continually deolaring that he has it. On
the other hand, brightness of speeoh will
often leilect some of its cheer over the dul.
ness that actually exists, and sometimes
banish some of it. There is good reason to
hold that many men of afalrs are more
soared than hurt, or else they have not
the same natures as they or their prede
cessors had in former times that were
Here in Montana where hard times
never have been known before, the
soared outnumber the hurt a hundred
Tna INDEPENDENT has already called
attention to one side of the present
financial depression that is particularly
bright for the people of the northwest.
We refer to the shifting of population
from old to new regions of country im
mediately following a panic. This same
feature of panics forms the subject of
an editorial article in the Northwest
Magazine for September from the pen
of Mr. E. V. Smalley, its editor. Mr,
"The ten years following 1873 were
years of enormous progress in the west.
Those years brought to Kansas and
Nebraska their second great wave of
immigration. They filled up western
Iowa and western Missouri. They con
verted the prairies of Minnesota and the
eastern part of Dakota into well-settled
and prosperous communities. They
sent a great throng across the continent
to develop agriculture and fruit-growing
in the valleys of California. This read
justment of labor and population had a
wholesome influence all around. It di
minished the number of producers in
the factories and increased the number
of consumers of factory products. It
turned millions of acres of waste land
into fertile farms. It was followed by a
general revival of industry in the older
states, by the building of thousands of
miles of railroads in the new states and
territories and by an era of prosperity
which is still referred to regretfully in
the west as the boom times. It seemed
to be the natural and necessary process
of correcting the evil of the congestion
of population in the large cities and
towns, the resulting overproduction of
manufactured goods and the overpres
sure brought to bear to dispose of such
goods. In flourishing times there is al
ways a rush to the centers of population.
In hard times many people go back to
the soil and compel it to yield them a
livelihood. If the experience of the
years following the panic of 1873 is now
repeated we shall see, probably next
spring, the beginning of a new west
ward movement of population. There
is plenty of room for more people all
along the western border of the humid
region; room, too, in the many irrigable
valleys in the vast arid region that lies
on both sides of the Rookies, and room
on the rich, open plains and in the great
wooded districts of Washington and
Oregon. In fact there is not a state
west of the Mississippi that does not
invite additional population."
Mr. Smalley might have drawn still
more forcible illustrations from the
panic of 1857 which was the making of
Chicago and the prairie states.
