Trh .Mltssoulian is deeply apprecia tit he many kind words that have uuun and written regarding its isplidi us--ei tion edition of a week l'I. ', i rressions have been vrr. gliriii-.uun t" its- who were c t'' pr-i jteation of the i-ht, ii-a. ur and we regret that con dlitioni prtei-t the publication here nwh an' of them. Along with thuew words of indorsement and ap pri val have come orders for copies of the edition in such numbers as to furo.iih substantial proof of the sin oority of the approval of The Mis souli n'ik efforts to properly present the resources of western Montana. Coii- of the reservation edition have bi'n mailed - to all corners of the eiart't: to Australia, India, South Africa and every European country The Missoulian of May 30 was mailed. Tram St. Paul and Chicago came tele 5rauphed orders for copies, the orders being sent as soon as the mails had carried the paper to its readers in those cities. In all, twenty tons of paper were used in the preparation of this edition and this weight has been sent by mail and express from Mis soula during the week that h s past. Especially does the office of The Mis soulian prize the words of commenda tion that have come by mail from those engaged in the railway work and in the irrigation and orchard pro jects in this part of the state. One editorial expression is spepially ap preciated, as it comes from a neigh boring district of western Montana's splendid empire; from the Libby News, these paragraphs are taken: Coming at this time, after the presi dent has issued his proclamation opening the Flathead reservation, all of the matter and the views accom paning the matter will be read and studied with much interest. If there be any one looking for an opportuhity to get information about the reserva tion he can not do better than to get a copy of last Sunday's Missoulian and study it diligently. The Missoulian is one of the best newspapers in Montana and loses nothing by the fact that it first boosts that portion of the state in which it makes its home. Western Montana comes at all times first with The Mis soulian and it is safe to say that there is no other one agency which has done more than has that newspaper to bring the wonderful resources of this great empire to the attention of those who are searching for homes. LEGAL REFORMS. The first meeting if its kind to be held in this country is the national conference on criminal law and criminology, which will be made a part of the anniversary of the found ing of the Northwestern university school of law, at Chicago, today. This semi-centennial anniversary is of itself important, but its attendant conference has attracted the presence of a large and distinguished gather ing of legal and sociological experts. The wide scope of the meeting is ex pected to result In exceptional addi tions to legal reform, penology, crim inal anthropology and other subjects hearing upon the treatment of crim inals. Abolition of the jury system and imprisonment for minor offenses, the substitution of state for local po lice systems, revision of the penal code, and improved methods in the treatment of offenders are some of the topics scheduled for discussion. THE ISSUE IN PORTLAND. In the municipal election in Port land today, the conspicuous issue is the question of adherence or opposi tion to the Oregon method of direct primaries. Joseph Simon, fornw** United States senator, is the regular republican candidate for mayor and around him have rallied the forces which favor a return to the old con vention form of making nominations. 'State Senator Albee, also a repub lican, is an independent candidate for the mayoralty and is the recognized leader of the primary supporters. There are two other candidates in the field, but the prominence which has beets giveq to the primary as an issue is believed to have centered the real contest in the tight between Simon and Albee. The result will be watch ed with considerable interest, , as it will reveal, to some extent, the local opinion of the working of lbh, new law, althought the verdict will not necessarily be conclusive, as the opposition to the primary mnethod has all along had its strongest support from the machine organization, which is greatest in the cities; the country districts, which will not be heard from in this municipal election, will have the determining voice in the re jection of the primary law or in its retention. But, should the verdict of Portland be in favor of the primary, then there will be no doubt as to its popularity. PREPAREDNESS NECESSARY. General George W. Wingate is the author of an important article in the June number of The North American Review, entitled The Truth in Re gard to the War of 1812 and the Necessity of Our Knowing It." Gen eral Wlingate deplores the fact that the ludicrous misconception regard ing the fortunes of American arms in that war tends to blind the people of the nation to the necessity of pre paring by general military training and practice in rifle shooting for pos sible conflicts in the future. He gives a detailed history of our military op orations is the war of 1812, with the res-it of showing that instead of achieving a series of splendid vic tories, we presented a spectacle of en counters with tho enemy which, with a few signal and glorious exceptions, were disgraceful flasces, General Wingate says: "The conviction as to our exploits in 1812 in 'defeating foreign regulars with untrained American citizens' is not only prevalent, but constitutes a serious injury to the country in the influence which it exerts in prevent ing necessary military legislation to provide adequate means of national defense, and at present in leading many to oppose that instruction of our youth in markmanship, not to mention military drill, which every soldier recognizes to be Indispensable for the maintenance of the peace; for no country can expect to remain at peace unless it is prepared to defend itself in time of war. As we never will have a sufficient regular army to do this, we can only make up for it by training our youth to be such good shots that they will be formida ble as volunteers. The Boer w1ar showed what skilled riflemen could do even against regular soldiers." A Bachelor of Journalism has just been graduated from the Missouri state university. The St. Louis Globe 1)emoerat, on behalf of those who have been long married to it, wishes him early nuptials. Missoula's representatives at the state tournament of gun sharps se cured next year's tourney but, ac cording to all reports, that is about all they 'did get. It is hoped that strenuousness of the senate tariff debate will satisfy itself with laying iiotions on the table and not go to the extent of laying members on the floor. As the tariff debate progresses, the democratic members of congress are in doubt as to where they are going, but they are sure they are on the Way. Bridge conditions are not entirely tilsfactory, it hi true, but they are much better than they were a year ago.

"There were something like 46,000 less marriages in New York state dur ing 1908 than there should have been under normal Sonditions of increase," writes Richard Maxwell Winans in the issue of Harper's Weekly for May 1?. The author ascribes this fact to the new law compelling brides and bride grooms to appear in person at thei city hall in order to secure licenses. The publicity and its attendant un pleasantness have driven many cou ples to take advantage of the facili ties for marriage that at'' offer .1 by adjacent states. GREAT FALLS MINISTER' MAKES ADDRESS ( 'untiued frot Page (ne.) course of instruction to such a puint ii that this great state of Montana is us now ready to recognise, in a public hi Way your achievemrnts and to enroll b you among those who, in the quaait t phrase of our text, possess 'the tongue So of them that are taught,; 1 wish, before ti -I go farther, to congratulate you from s, my heart and I bid you to value your lt acquirement to its full worth, and t' cherish it with dignified joy, for a cui- t tured self is beyond all price, Another Suggestion. ii hut t find another suggestion here t that adds immeasurably to the depth t and power of this ancient scholar's tp meditation. It is one thing to feel i oneself possessed of a trained mind that is splendil; It is to its possessor a sword, a tool, a workshop, a very n world of litrgeness and uieliglit. lutt the trained mind, the cultured soul as Ii it contemplates this great possession 1) cannot rest here. The cultured thinker by the very laws of his culture must trace the relationships of his soul wealth. 'The Lord Jehovah hath giveen me the tongue of theta that art taught.' The velled speaker in utter Ing these words, has iparted a ar-i velous and great dignity to the fact of his training. In the light of this conception we see that culture ani tl training which before might have hoen e a loire acciiienital iind Itersuinal last, little and selitsh in its Importane, spring forth into mighty relationships. This possession is of God. The fact of P one's learning bears a relationship to Him. 1 "When you come to regarid your edu- t cation as the gift to you front thei state you try to conceive of it as the xi state intends that you should. When you go further and contemplate with 1i this thinker of the text that your edo- li ention is a gift to you from Gail you are privileged to think of it is nearly as you may from God's standpoint. "And, today, deeply desirous as I am to give you it trule and helpful wordil as you pause for it sacred mnessage at this high moment In your careers, I bid you as it first essential to real sue' cess: Compel yourselves to think clearly. Do not deem it too high it ii thing in the littlest matters of thought rI and conduct to prens your reasoning f to the very throne of God and seek to li ground each purpose and enleavor in hI eternal and unshakable priniplles. principles. Begin by regarding those lI powers with which God has endowed It you and which constitute your capital stock in life as God himself looks utipon your relationship to them, to do other- b wise would be to fail-and you are not enlisting for failure. "God has given you the endowment It of ii splendid preparation because he 1l hams designattedi youi for it rnoble tiur pose. Hearken once inure to the sug gestlon of the text: 'The Lord Jeho vial hath given me the tongue of them y that aire taught, that t may know 5 how to sustain with words him that is weary.' \Wihy should this, discerning sage say, 'The tongue of them that are taught?' Why not rather the i mind or the car of them that are taught? Is it not because the tongue It Is the organ of utterance and expres- c laon? And when God Iills a soul with culture he does not mean it for that i soul alone; like the fragrunce aorl I beauty of the rose and the wuarblings 'c of the song bird it is a gift for all. t Consciously and unconsciously we are V all ceaslessly uttering ourselves. The f poet singing his verses is consciously N attempting to impart to others his is thoughts of truth and beauty, but 'bh- at yond tI' poet's sweet dream, there is ever "the eternal epic of the man.' The musician, the piirter, the sculptor, the architect have thoughts of beauty and truth which they utter in syllables of song or cenvas or statue or arch. Everything we di is an utterance of the sudl; it is a tongue that tells abroad what we think and what we ii re. So when God st urps ai souil wiit truth he' iresiipposes its utterance, and whoever has his soul Stored with truth iind dies not Iind a tongue-a power to agali titter it--is sadly un true to Ia isacred trust. The 'Divine Purpose. "Hut it contempldting thie divine purpose in his education this ancient sage becomes more definite and stie citle. Listen once more to his words, 'The Lord Jetocai h hath given mee the tongue of then that are taught that I may know how to sustain with words him that is weary.' The cul tured mind is a gift frolt God and for men The scholar, this ton of spe cial training anii high privilege, hears is there a trusteeship of the ictter equ01itment and preparation finds its meaning in the fact that his is to be the uplifting life. His wealth of intel loctuat training and culture is a trust fund for men. "We or ihearing a good dial these days about the ste ivardship of wealth. The man who has dollars is recog. nized as owing tt debt to humanity at large, and the capitalist, great or siall, who seeks to serve oni liim self with the wealth he has toii from the forces that society and itt1 have pliied ili his hands is opinly set down as false to a. trust and ignoble to the better instinuts of muanikind.
