CARBON-COPY TWINS Last week, commenting upon the latest move of the press bureau of the ;influence" in Montana politics, we re marked that the Incident had been ob served in this office with considerable interest but that we had preferred to let somebody else direct public atten tion to the matter, as we teared we mllght be accused of personalCfielilng Ia the consideration of the peculiar sad laughable expose which the car bon-cbpy twinl perpetrated upon themselves. Came then the Butte Miner, bulwark of democracy, and the Tellowetone Journal, defender of the faith of republlcanism.. Each Deril nently and with keen sarcasm called attention to the way the carbon-copy twins had slipped a cog and had given te snap away. The remarks of'the Joynal and "the Miner convinced us that we had-not been over-influenced as ulmLkrnt Owlnl to the fact that senator Dixon is one of the seven men who are the owners of the capital stock of the coampany which publishes The Mis soutlan, we always feel reluctant to discuss, editorially, his record as one of the senators 'from Montana. It has been the policy of The Missoutlan to indulge in no fulsome editorial praise of Mr. Dixon but, in its news columns, toQ. Ooord him the same measure of fair publicity which is given to every other public man in Montana, what ever his political affiliations-Just that and no more--and it has often hap pened that The Missoulian has said less about his work than would other wise have been the case had it been some other man who accomplished at Washington what he has done for thl people end the interests of this state. At the same time, we realise that Joe Dixon, as a citisoen of Montana and one of the state's representatives at Washington, is entitled to at least a square deal. And now, not on ac count of, but notwithstanding, the fact that he is the owner of a portion of the stock of this publishing company, we believe the time has come to make known the truth regarding the cun ningly-devised propaganda which has been carried on for some time by cer tain interests in Montana, both politi eal and corporate, in the true Machia velian style by which its sponsors have, in years past, successfully man ipulated the politics of Montana for their own personal ends. DARK-LANTERN PLANS-Direct ness of purpose, however, has never been the plan of operation which these sponsors have adopted. Playing the game in the open is unknown in their course of procedure. They have ever sought to accomplish by indirection and subtertuge their ultimate purpose in political manipulation; daylight and publicity are fatal to their dark lantern methods, The people of Mon tans might as well know the truth about tIh present situation. The friends of denator Dixon do not pro pose that, while he is absent at his oat, of duty in Washington, these men 1 i stab him in the back among his e? p ,eople at home, S. s known to all men who have fooewd affairs at the national capital, control of the fqdeul senat has rfoum the gend 4he-a4A, + the`. soen souit 4 t lq lv lr, th lkijatrd of predatory wealth has lost Its grip upon the senate. For the first time since the civil war the re actionary, tory membership-composed of both democrats and republicans-is now in the minority. Progressive leg islation is now a possibility. The di rect election of senators, the income tax, real regulation of unlawful trusts and combines, tie regulation of freight charges by interstate roads, the pub licity and limitation of campaign ex penses, the overhauling of the present tariff schedules on the basis of the dif ference between the cost of produc tion at home and abroad-all these re forms are about to become realities after a quarter-century period of de mand by the people of the country. The interested parties are thorough ly alarmed and are quietly at work in several states to secure needed rein forcements In the senatorial elections of next year; they are in more need of "dependable senators" at Washington who will again serve their Interests by the skillful legerdemain heretofore employed In chloroforming progressive lawmaking. One year ago the republicans of Montana elected every candidate on their state ticket by an average ma jority not far from sixty-five hundred; in the same election, county after county gave strong majorities for re publican state and county tickets and returned democratic members of the legislature. Had it not been for the seemingly miraculous change of the politics of Deer Lodge county, In which is situated the city of Anaconda, the legislature would have been two-to-one democratic, in an election which gave the republican ticket the largest ma jorities in the history of the state. A RESUKE-No man in Montana misunderstood then, and no man in Montana misunderstands today, the deep-seated meanitg of that election. No man was ever convicted In a court of justice who was willing to admit that he was to blame for his own un fortunate predicament. Every man, defeated for office, invariably seeks to place the blame for his own defeat upon somebody else; he cannot realise that his own standing with the people was the prime reason for his own po litical mlisfortunes. Last year, when the final returns told the story in plain, unmistakable facts why the re publican state ticket had been tri umphantly elected while the legisla tive tickets had been repudiated in strong republican counties, a precon certed effort was at once put forth in certain quarters to "lay the blame on Dixon," attributing, thereby, to Mr. Dixon a supreme power in Montana politics never before wielded by mortal man, a power that could by ltd magic hypnotise six thousand sturdy, inde pendent republican voters in Montana to support their party's state candi dates and repudiate its legislative nominees. THE COMBINES WORK-From the close of the legislative assembly at Helena, the combine has been indus triously at work seeking to undo what the people of Montana did so thor oughly at the polls. In order to do their work to the completeness which they desired, the members of the com bine found it would be necessary to assassinate Dixon; their scheme could not succeed unless he were put out of the way. And that did not seem a difficult matter to them. Had not the great, courageous fighter, Wilbur i'. Sanders, been disposed of, politically, by the crafty cunning of these men and by the use of their political poi son prepared by unseen hands and quietly and systematically admlnis-l tered in the way of rumors and whim perings and by a judicious use of funds to such newspapers as would lend themselves for hire? Had not ex-Senators Power and Mantle been put out of the way in the same man ner? Had not Colonel Goddard, Charlie Webster, Dave Folsom, Wit liam Lindsay and other less obstreper ous but none the less loyal republicans -possessed of an opinioo.,that was not utterly subservient to the combine had not they been sidetracked? It would not be difficult to kill off Dixon in the same way. THE METHOD-But it was neces sary-it always Is-to secure some newspapers. The publicity must be obtained through the combine's press bureau. Then, get the papers was the order. If there were some which were nominally republicen, so much the bet ter; get them. In the outside districts of the state, the "editorials," carefully prepared by another hand but inserted in the regular columns at so much per insertion, could then be copied into other newspapers, and this process could be reversed. There and so would be obtained the semblance of the ut terances of a free press. If there were an editor soniewhere who wanted to be postmaster, who, perhaps, had been promised by somebody with nothing to promise but whom Congressman Pray could not recommend for the place then the disappointed man and his friends could be led to believe that ,.,ixon was to blame." That would l tlcwpric of that editor a good 0 of (i0 4t Would mak, the whole thiln a lot easier. ,ditorlals" had been published before which were prepared in Helena singing extrava gant and fulsome praise of the com blne and they had been published at stated rates; certainly there would be no trouble in repeating ,the process. And equally certainly there would be no difficulty in securing the columns of a publication whichl-as asserted by those who claim to know the facts- had permitted a public-service cor poration to subsidise its editorial col umns for the magnificent sum of two hundred dollars a month-there would, of course, be no difficulty in getting this publication to engage in the lucra tive work of "roasting Dixon." Also, it might be possible to enlist in the cause the columns of the very weekly newspaper which, for two years or more, had contained lurid editorials dealing defiant challenge to the "Crow reservation gang" and exposing the di abolical scheme to "loot Alaska" and the criminal administration of the "Northern Pacific land grants"-all matters for which Mr. Dixon had not stood In his public or private life. That would be fine. IN OPERATION-No sooner said than done. The plan was working finely. The original "editorials" were duly set up in type and appeared at the heads of the chosen editorial col umns. Extra Inducement was offered in the way of the purchase of extra copies for blue-penciling and for mall ing where they might do some good. These blue-penciled "editorials" were mutually reprinted in the columns of the combination press. And at the head of the front page of one of these journals was proudly flaunted the motto, "An Independent Republican Newspaper Published in the Interest of the People at Large." Oh, the whitened sepulcherl So the machine ran, smoothly and silently. And the Captain smiled approval. A COG 8LIPS-But, about a week ago, a oog slipped. In sending out "editorial matter" the stenographer at headquatters evidently got the office file of the carbon-copy dope Into the wrong editorial envelope. The poor editor should not be blamed for the mistake in the copy furnished him. He printed what h) got, and what he got came from heldquarters. How it happened will be explained later, if any explanation is necessary. But the slip gave us the Carbon-Copy Twins. THE TWINS-At the city of Helena is published "The Treasure State," a weekly Journal bearing the edi torial imprint, "John H. Raftery, Edl tor." While some of its critics have said that some portions of its edi torials were profane and that some of its correspondence bordered upon the vulgar, and while--outside the so leoot confines of the Montana club some of the rank and file of the citi zenship of Helena often refer to it as the paid mouthpiece of the somewhat notorious Helena Water company, still Editor Raftery niakes a very readable paper. We now concern ourselves with that Issue of The Treasure State which bears the dateline, "Helena, Montana, August 19, 1911." To keep the chronology straight it should be observed that the nineteenth of August was Saturday. Six hundred miles east of Helena Is located the thriving little city of Glendive. The fast-mall trains of the Northern Pacific make the run from IHelena to (lendive In eighteen and twenty hours; In other words, if you mall a letter in Helena one day, and there is no delay in the mail service, the letter should reach Glendive on the following day. In this thriving little city of Glendive Is published an other weekly Journal, "The Dawson County Review." Its editor, J. A. Met calf, if you believe the legend at the top of his front page, does not print his journal of human rights in the Interest of Brother Metcalf, but "in the interest of the people at large." Of course he does. The Dawson County Review, two issues ago, went to press, according to its owan dateline, "Friday, August 18, 1911." Still keeping our chronology straight, let us nqte that Brother Metcaltts Review went to presp Fri day, August 18, and Brother Raftery's Treasure State on Saturday, August 19. With one day's mail service In tervening, it would, therefore, be physically Impossible for one of these tribunes of the people to reproduce an editorial from the other--six hun dred miles distant. Yet, at the same, identical time, these two weekly pa pers printed, as original editorial mat ter, tihe same, identical, verbatim seriatim - literatin - et - punctuatim, three - quarter - column - long attack upon Senator Dixon, accusing him in withering sarcasm, of stealing his re cent senate speech dealing with the "skirting clause" in the present wool tariff. This carbon-copy editorial ex presses righteous indignation that Senator Dixon should plagiarise a wool speech made by former Senator Mantle on the wool tariff. Brother Metcalf and Brother :Raftery both burp with ilshame and both with one accord suggest that. I tot., Dixon's secretary wrote the speech for him. Fourteen yea's iagS.:.sndir Mantle did make a speech on tfe.ywool tariff. It was a fine spee.L. The Glendive editor in his "edit.agl' refers to the very issue of the ild, bound volune of the Congressio9aL Heord, June 4, 1897, in which the Mantle speech may be found. Of course, it is doubt ful if there was a copy of the old Congressional Record within three hundred miles of the sanctum of the editor of the Review. Of course, Brother Raftery, not having become a resident of Montana for ten years after Mr. Mantle so ably defended the interests of the Montana woolgrower on the floor of the: senate, never heard of the Mantle speech until the "editorial" was prepared for general distribution. To Sg4lsfy the curious minded, and In a sp$it of fairneu, we would suggest to anybody inter ested that he get the speech of Mr. Mantle and that of Mr. Dixon and compar6 the two In order to ascer tain for himself the absurdity of the false assertion which so strangely (7) appeared at the same time in these two Journals, publiseNd six hundred miles apart. EMBARRASIING-Tt was a rough deal on the part of the captain to put these poor editors up against it; but he, too, suffers; his whole scheme is thus exposed. It Is true that Brother Raftery did give his "editorial" a lead of his own and that he did write in a couple of sub-heads, "One of Dixon's Hits" and "Dr. Cook Back Up," while Brother Metcalf places "Profound Wisdom" over his "edl .torial" copy. But aside from this, the two "editorials" are the same. And the whole plan appears. Isn't it funny how these unfortunate mistakes some times rise to embarrass the poor edi tor who is trying to turn an honest penny for himself? To the readers of the productions of these two moulders of, public opinion-these Carbon-Copy Twins In thus rudely exposing their mentors and at the same tltke enlightening thgm as to one of the' ubtle schemes of a discredited political machine in seeking to bespatter with mud a pub lic officer who makes .is mistakes, as all men do, but wbo,' ye believe, Is doing his public 4uty, as he sees It with the one single purpose of trying, to the best of his ability, to represent the people of his state at Washing ton-to these readers .who may find their idols shattered, ,We would sug gest that they mlghty Induce their favorite editors to run at the heads of their editorial pages a go in their present mottoes and tnat the change might appropriately be:, "This Argus o'er the people's rights Doth an eternal vigil keep. No soothing strains of Maai's sons Shall lull, its hundred eyes to sleep." SImY_. MMOUL.TON., (Copyrighted 111 By C. N. Mather.) Not Yet. She talks no silly persiflage.

They were published simultaneously, 600 miles apart, and run by each of the Carbon-Copy Twins as original matter: As The Dawson County Review said it: PROFOUND WISDOM., The speech of Senator Dixon on the wool bill, delivered in the Senate on July 26, has attracted considerable attention for what it did not contain as much as for the lucid exr'anation of the "skirting joker" in the Payne tariff. The new senators congratu lated the senior senator from Montana on making a contribution to tariff literature, and on the discovery of a joker In the present law. The older senators, who have been in congress through several tariff re visions, smiled at the earnestness and assumed originality of the Montana senator, but remembering that they had heard something similar before waited to hear the mention of ex Senator Lee Mantle's name among the others quoted in the speech. They were disappointed. Senator Dixon did not once mention the name of Mr. Mantle, and yet his speech was a brief Synopsis of the elaborate argument of Mr. Mantle on the same subject delivered in the Sepate in June, 1897, when the Dingley bill was under consideration in that body. Mr. Mantle's speech filled 25 or 30 pages of the Record, was one of the most elaborate discussions of the wool schedule ever delivered in the Sen ate, and in it he dealt at length with the skirting clause which he de nounced as the "skirting Joker" of the bill. That clause in the Payne law is. not new. It was just the same in the Dingley law and there was copied from the McKinley law of 1890. Mr. Mantle discussed this clause in his speech in the senate in 1897 and said all that Senator Dixon said in July, 1911. The arguments and the explanations are identical and so is much of the language, but Senator Dixton forgot to mention Mr. Mantle's name or credit any of the language used to him. Mr. Dixon's speech was frequently em phasized with such expressions as "this is the exact truth," "now lis ten to this," "here is the joker," etc., but like the preacher who quoted the beautiful twenty-third psalm without quotation marks and without mention Ing the Sacred Book where it could be found, he did not once permit himself to tell the Senate of the author from which he quoted, or give it the source of his information. That is why the newer senators listened with rapt wonder to the wisdom which fell from the lips of the Montana senatr and also why the older senators wait ed to see if he would not, before he took his seat, do justice to his prede cessor and say, "Senators, this is not new, or original with me. It is not new information to the United States senate. It has been presented here before, and most elaborately, when the Dingley bill was before this body in 1897 by another senator from Mon tana, and if you care to pursue ,the subject further and go into the de tails which I am not able to present in the short time available for this debate, I refer you to the Congres sional Record of June, 1897, where you will find the speech of Senator Lee Mantle of Montana covering many pages and with elaborate tables, dia grams and apt quotations from other authorities on the wool question." But Senator Dixon did nothing of the kind. He made his speech, boiled down from Mr. Mantle's speech. spoke with' the enthusiasm and confi dence of an original explorer, and made no reference whatever to the blazed trail or to the guide posts that had been set up years ago, or to the continents, islands, rivers and moun tains that had long since been given the names of their real discoverers. He enjoyed the attention of the new Senators who accepted him as the dis coverer of the "skirting joker," and he-may not have understood the r.illes of some of the older and morn ex perienced Senators who had heard something like It before. It is barely possible that S9natcr Dixon did not know that he was not an original discoverer. He was a stranger to Washington and nationai politics in 187., had probably neveor read Schedule K, or Mr. Mantle's speech; but he has as his able assist ant the same secretary who was with Mr. Mantle 14 years ago, and this speech may have been the uncon sclous confusion of old dicta!i.n on the part of the secretary. Like "Lit tle Buttercups" the secretary may have got the babies mixed up and substituted Mr. Mantle's dictation for that of the present senior Senator. PATHOLOGICAL BUREAU TO BE ESTABLISHED Field District No. 1 of the forest service is to undertake an extensive study of pathological questions in con nection with fungus diseases of forest trees, the announcement to this effect having been made at local headquar ters yesterday. The work is to be done under the direction of Dr. Hedge cock, chief of pathology in the bureau of plant industry, who did consider able work in connection with the smoke case from the Washoe smelter at Anaconda. Dr. Weir, also a noted pathologist, is coming from the east to take personal charge of the work. He will make his headquarters here and will be assigned office room and a stenographer at the forestry headquar. ters and the work will be co-ordinated with that of the forest service. Dr. Weir will be in Missoula on September 8 to hold a conference and outline the plans for the work.
