sA.' JUDITH GAP IS LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF THE LAROEST A ND MO ST P ROLIFIC WI NTER WHEAT REGION IN THE WORLD Judith Gap Journal ~~ VOL. 4. NO 51. JUDITH GAP. MONTANA. FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 1. 1912. PRICE. FIVE CENTS Â GREAT SPEECH BY T. J. WALSH The editor of the Journal was in Ijewlstown M outlay night and attend ed the democratic rally held in the opera house. The speakers were J. M. Evans, candidate for congress, •nd T. J. Walsh, candidate for IT. S. senator. Mr. Evans was the first speaker, and prepared the way for the princi pal speaker by relating some humor ous anecdotes, thus getting the audi ence iu a pleasant frame of mind. Mr. Evans is a fluent talker, gracious in his demeanor, and able iu argu ment. Mr. Walsh followed, and for over two hours held his audience in rapt attention. It was an argument of the lawyer to a jury, and was tilled with forceful facts, illustrating the reason for the great success of this little giant of the Hockies in the practice of his profession of the law. His trained and master mind held the big audience spell bound as lie drove home sledge hammer blows against predatory wealth acting us the invisable government under Taft, establishing the fact that the speaker is a progressive of progressives, and all the time craftily concealing the Temedy for all the political wrongs which the democratic party is going to right when placed in power. In this he showed tbe skill of the train ed and successful criminal lawyer. It was a greet speech as much iu what he did not say as iu what he said. Ilis listeners, however, were impressed with the fact that they were hearing the wrongs of the ad ministration controlled by Harnes, Penrose and Crane presented to them in language that burned into the soul, but the orator avoided mentioning bow the Wilson administration was going to get nd of Boss Sullivan, Boss Taggart, Boss Murphy, and Thomas Ityan, the protector of preditory wealth. He promised a gradual reduction of the tariff, but he did not explain that Oscar Underwood is the chair man of the ways and means commit tee in the hous and will remain, in that position if the democrats win on November 5th.

BEER J AND HAYNEJ "THE PIONEER J OF JUDITH GAP" actionary and a tory of the old school, lie knows nothing but the tariff and has a false idea about that. Mr. Bryan made a public assault upon him last year, because he was a re actionary. He will draft the new tariff for revenue bill for the demo crats, and the bill will be passed by the democratic house, because the south will have a majority there, and they are all for free trade. Mr. Walsh called attention to the miserable manner in which the in terior department of the present gov ernment is being conducted, and be lieved that the Western people should vote for the democratic party if for no otiier reason than to have a change in tne general land ottice. But lie did not call attention to the fact that un der Cleveland a man named .Sparks was the commissioner of the general land ollice, and he was the most ty ranical official who ever occupied that position. It was almost impos sible for a settler to comply with the arbitrary rulings of this most obnox ious officer, and he brought great dis credit upon a very much discredited administration. The same mistake might be made again, as the eastern plutrocrat in both the democratic and republican parties is against giving the public domain away to home steaders. He did not promise a re form in this office if the democrats should win, but there would be a change. Mr. Walsh stated that the Northern Pacific railroad had receiv ed a land grant of every odd number ed section of government land for for ty miles on eacli side of the railroad from St. Paul to Seattle. That in this grant the railroad fell heir to ov er a million acres of land up the side of Mt. Usinier in Washington. That the mountain was a burned out vol cano and no vegetation on any por tion of it; that a senator of Montana had persuaded the secretary of the in terior to place this mountain in the forest reserve, and trade a million acres of land lying outside of the or iginal grant to the Northern Pacific iu lieu of the barren sides of Mt. Hauler. The compauy consequently selected these lauds iu different parts of Montana, and that a large amount of it was taken out of Meagher and Fergus county. But Mr. Walsh did not offer any remedy whereby the government could repossess itself of Tremendous Qhange of Sentiment in New York New York, Oct. 25.—This morning the New York World, Times, Press, Tribune and American, and the Brooklyn Eagle have leading articles to the effect that the republican campaign iff New York lias suffered a severe set back and has become practically a negligible quantity j n the campaign. These newspapers go further and declare tiiat tin* democrats are worried sorely over the advance made by the progressive movement in New York city this week. This summary is bused upon the polls which these same newspapers have been making iu city and state. These polls have been showing a steady gain iu progressive sentiment and today all the newspapers mentioned, in their polls place Roosevelt ahead of Wilson in state and city, lor the Hist time since the publication of the straw votes.began. This confirms the informa tion received at progressive headquarter* that there is already a tremendous swing toward Roosevelt and Johnson and that all through the eastern states the tide is running strongly in their fav0r. Pennsylvania is regarded as cer tain for Roosevelt by a plurality of not Less than one hundred thousand. Government Crop Estimate For Four Western States Spokesman-Review: The United States department of agriculture has issued a special estimate of the wheat crop of the four northwest suites for the Twtce-a-Week Spokesman-Review. The total figures for the four states aie 101,967,000 bushels. With all due courtesy to the crop reporting board of the department of agriculture, the Twlce-a-Week Spokesman-Review must call attention to what it believes to be a gross overestimate in the state of Washington. The total given for spring and winter wheat is 53,728,000 bushels. Last year the same authority estimated 36,239,000 bushels lor this paper, though the estimate was higher when it was printed in the year book. Estimates by grain men, and reports made to this office lead to the conclusion that but very little more Wheat will be raised in Washington this year than last. Between 36,000,000 and 38,000,000 bushels seems a reasonable estimate. Oregon is credited with 21,018,000 bushels this year, as against 17,016,000 • bushels last year. This seems justified, as the dry central part raised a big crop this year. Umatilla county had a bumper crop, and the west part of the state had a good output, some of which, however, was damaged by the wet weather. In Idaho the estimate gives a stump of nearly 3,000,000 bushels. It is difficult to tell, from the reports coming to this office, where such a slump could have occurred in Idaho unless it was figured that there were immense amounts of wheat lost by wet weather in the Lewiston country. It did look for a week or 10 days as though the loss would run Into the millions, but the actual loss hardly amounted to 3, 000,00t» bushels. Montana Is hard lilt by the government estimate. I^st year the depart ment gave the state 16,919,000 bushels, though private estimates of enthu siasts in that state put the crop at 19,000,000 bushels. This year the proud boast was made that the 26,000,000 bushel mark would be reached, but wet weather and generally unfavorable conditions brought about a much short er crop than expected. In the Judith Bakin, in Meagher county, and other sections, the reports in this office show a lower yield than a year ago. Con sequently it is not surprising that the department's figures have the state low. However, It was not to be expected that the estimate would be 4 • 000,000 below 1911 unless it was thoqsbt that the loss from unfavorable weather would be enori 1912.

Mr. Walsh stated that patriotism was burning low in the breasts of those American citizens who annual ly flocked to Canada to take up lauds and become subjects of King George, and accused the invisible government of being responsible for this tremen dous migration of people and money, but lie did not guarantee tiiat the Wilson administration would not be controlled by the same invisible in fluences as now control. Mr. Walsh promised to stand with the progressive democrats in the con gress on all measures of a progressive nature. There is no doubt about this matter in any man's mind who knows Mr. Walsh. All his public acts tend to continu this opinion. But lie did not explain tiiat in tiie democratic senate, if it is democratic, the rule of seniority absolutely prevails iu the makeup of the standing committees. The most powerful committee of the senate is that on finance, whicli cor responds to tiiat of the wavs and means committee of the house. If the democrats gain control of the sen ate, F. M. Simmons of North Caroli na will become chairman of the com mittee on finance. He is a pronounc ed standpatter who frequently was of | material assistance to Mr. Aldrich in the enactment of the Aldrich tariff law of loon. He joined his friend Bailey of Texas in supporting the no torious Lorimer. He is a confirmed reactionary, opposed to progress at all points; a tory of the ultra type. With these two powerful committees, in both houses, iu the hands of the in timate friends of predatory wealth, Mr. Walsh knows well tiiat. the pro gressives will be unable to secure any progressive legislation. The little giant of the Hockies paid Senator Dixon a high compliment on his progressivism, which, be said, dated from the time the senator ad vocated and pushed through the long and short iiaul clause to the railroad rate bill, which clause was the great est piece of legislation ever placed on the statute books of the nation for the benefit ol the common people. Mr. Walsh is one of the brainiest men of the country today. He and Bryau, O'Gorman and l'omenue j j ! I ; j | wrote the democratic national plat form at Baltimore, which Woodrow Wilson has since mildly repudiated by saying that it is not necessarily a program. If the democrats sweep the country on next Tuesday, as they fondly hope to do, Mr. Walsh will find himself occupying the same po sition in the democratic party as La Follette occupies in the republican party—greatly in the minority—and therefore unable to accomplish any thing in the way of progressive legis lation. The time is coming when all these progressives of botli parties will as semble under one banner ami they will carry the country by an over whelming majority, and stay iu pow er indefinitely. Walsh, Bryan, La Follette, Cummings, Clapp and others have no business sticking to the two old boss-ridden parties if they are really sincere in wanting to accom plish progressive legislation. IT PAYS TO STACK YOUR GRAIN EARLY Today's successful farmer is a very different sort of a farmer than the suc cessful farmer of a decade ago. The successful farmer of today must know something of the science of farming and also something of the business side of farming. These must he combined in a working proportion. Either without, the compliment of the otiier, is not sufficient to produce suc cess in its most, economical, practical, profitable maxiuni. The fact that many farmers have made money and have apparently been successful with out a recognition of the science of farming, without the aid of systematic plans for field management, and with out any system of farm accounts, does noi dignity that they could not have made more money, with less labor, with infinitely greater economy, and therefore have achieved greater suc cess, had they employed these recog nized aids and necessaries in their farm operations. The few who have made a success without these have done so in spite j of the handicap they worked under, rather than because of It. Failures In j many instances are directly due to a ! lack of farm science, emplovment of I system, and intimate knowledge of ; business prlnclnles. j We question If there Is one per cent of the farmers of North Dakota who have considered the stacking of grain from a business standpoint. Does ir pay, in hard dollars and cents, to stack, or shall we continue to thresh from the shock as is the common practice? When we experience a fall such as we have had for the past month, al most everyone will agree that stacked grain will give better quality seed than grain that has be^n subject to the continued rains and wet weather. Carefully and accurately conducted experiments and investigations in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois show that stacking grain pays in actual dollars and cents. Stacking prevents deterioration, makes grain a better color, with plump er kernels, and with a smaller per cent spoiled or sprouted. Exact com parisons of cost of stacking and thresh ing from the shock are available on practically every kind of grain com mon in North Dakota. These com parisons on the same field, under sim ilar weather conditions, and with the same average yields, show as apparent ly additional cost for stacking of 1.7 cents per bushel yield. This apparent additional cost is offset, however, by the insurance against bleached, sprout ed or bin-burnt grain and by the im provement of grade. Improvement in grade of stacked grain is often sufficient to pay the en tire additional cost for stacking and give from I to 3 cents additional profit per lmsliel yield. Only when machines and labor are quickly available soon after harvest and uniform weather conditions positive, will standing in the shock he offset, since In standing, loss of grade Is no slight item. Shock threshing of seed grain is even then questionable, since stacking seed grain insures plumper kernels, of unimpaired vigor and strong vitality. We know North Dakota farmers who annually stack the grain from three-quarters or more. These men, even in such falls as 1911 and 1912, have no difficulty in getting their fall plowing done. These men, too, are among the progressive farmers, since they combine science and business, to the end that their farms improve and at the same time their hank ac count grows. On a much larger number of farms of the state, under prevailing condi tions of climate, availability of ma chines and of labor, stacking would in dicate better management. VICE PRESIDENT SHERMAN DEAD Vtiea, N. Y., Oct. 80.—After along iilines Vice President James S. Sher man died at his home in this city at 9:42 o'clock tonight of uraemic poi. son caused by Brights' disease. He had been sinking since early morn ing, and it was realizied that death was a question of only a few hours. There was slight relief for Mr. Shermau shortly after 7 o'clock, caused by apparent improvement in the condition of the kidneys, hut it did not prove real or lasting and at best gave only temporary hope. best gave only temporary hope. —Carlos D.

SELECTION OF MONTANA SEED One of the very important functions* of the Montana Seed Growers' asso ciation, which was organized a shorts time ago, is to find out where good seeds may be purchased. During tin» winter and early spring, there is much inquiry for seeds of all sorts. Fann ers who live in the state, as well as the farmers and dealers outside of the state desire to procure Montnna grown seeds. They ask for alfalfa seed, early maturing strains of corn, flax, wheat, oats, barley, spring rv» and other farm seeds. Good service can be rendered to purchasers and the splendid grains which are raised in the state can bs advertised and profitable markets pro cured if farmers and others who hava seeds of good quality for sate would Inform the secretary of the Seed Grow ers' association. Buyers of seeds ara most, anxious to procure seed of goo<9 quality. ; Of course they do not de sire to pay unreasonable prices, but! are willing to pay high prices for good stuff. There are now many good farm ers in the state and seeds of very higï# quality must be available. Drop a line to the office of the Mon tana Seed Growers' association, stat ing what, you have to sell and whatt price you are asking for it. The sur ret ary of the Montana Seed Growers* association is Alfred Atkinson, car« Montana Experiment Station, Boze man, Montana. M. E. durch Notice.
