IN EARNEST. Thle Roosevelt sentiment in Monl tina is sincere. More than that, it jIossesses strength and It is becoming stronger. It is genuine. It will en dure.

Il( merit wllch In in the IRooovt'iet puolcle,. tJuwin which there has never been a policy ilcore implnrtant in the development of the vest. We believe the Montana repub licans at Billings did well to indorse the candidacy of Mr. Rposevelt and that they did better to mike their In dorsement positive and emphatic. The opposition to this candidacy is resort ing to the very tarties which would e expectelcd in this vane; this olppsl tion by its every utterance mlakes plaln tlhe fact that Roosevelt has "'thrown a sclre" iinto the camp of the reactionaries. It is likely thaIt the oppolition will aslunme a very bitter phase in the event that Mr. Itoonte Ielt concludes to accept the inviationll to enter the rave. But lie is a hitg manl, lt I1ooms so far above the men 'c ho seek to attack hintl and t,~ be little the work he hal s.done, that the assailants mlcrely make their little nels all the more applarent.

Within lthe last two years the I'nli vrrlity of 'Montana hal sought to )croatdcn Its Influence by glving courses on lppular slllujectms by lectures in tlhe towns anld cities of tile state. As a re sult, the university hal become an itn fluence for good I nail Montauna. Froml eastern Montttnia come four nlmes as many calls fur lecturers and courses as the unliverity can supplly, a fine Indication of the Interest that has been aroused and of the good that has been done already. One of the bellt things amonlgl these extension courses is provided for railroad men. The latest proof of the regard for this railroad course comles from Helena, where a petition hlu originated. In this extension work the uniiversity is finding its true iusefulllne, in that it is making possible that technical and classical educathon be supplied to peo ple selit oft from attending the school in person by cire'cumstance or condi tion. There Is little sengEe in saying that a man cannot learn after reach Ing a certain age. The limit for learn Ing I senile decay, nothing short of that. ALASKA INDIANS, No Indians at all will be left In Aliika In two or three generations, utntes the government takes vigorous measulre to check disease among them at onos, says the report of Dr. M. -,- Peatr, passed assistant cur geqlpn; 4lypbliol health an4 marlne o* 4 u e. pr.

The report says, in part: "Owing to the usual lack of vital statistics in a pioneer country aiah as this, the exact facts on which to base an opinion have never been avnllable and 'most of the statements have been mere conjecture. At 1itka accurate records have been kept by the churches, and they show that for a period of five years and seven months the annual birth rate has been "72.3 per thousand and the annual death rate 85.4 per thousand. , During this period, with an estimated popu lation of 400, there were 20 more deaths than births. "The returns of the United iStates census bureau show that in the last ten years there has been a decrease in the total Indian population ap proximately equal to 14 per cent, or 1 1-2 per cent per year. This cor responds very closely to the rates as figured at 81tka, and they may be taken as indicating fairly correctly the rates for the whole country. The death rate in the United States varies from seven to eight per thou sand to thirty-five per thousand, de pending upon the locality. An aver age death rate may be placed at twenty-two to twenty-three per thou sand. "The very uInusual mortality in Alaska, namely, 85.4 fier thousand, is to be attributed largely to pulmonary tuberculosis, and unless it is checked In some way it will result in the ex tinction of the natives In sixty or sev enty years. Fortunately, It is coun terucrted to a m-rtain extent by an un ustuially ltge birth rate, but the birth rate will probably decrease us time goes on."

It is difficult for occidentals prop= erly to estimate the tremendous effect that these political changes are hav ing on the everyday lfe of the mil lions of Chinese. Certainly they are not having the same effect that a sim liar political upheaval would have on the lives of a western people-Amerl oans for Instance. even a reformed and republlcan China still will be topsy-turvy land, and the Chinese never will do things as we do them, or see things as we see them. They are ceremonial where we are Informal; they are unconventional where we are conventional. The Mlanchu dynasty abdlcs.tes the oldest throne In the world, and yields back to the people the sovereign power exercised for thousands of years by them and their predecessors, all In an edict couched in language as informal as an American schoolboy's letter to his chum. Negotiations of state, in volving the destines of the most pop ulous nation In the world, are carried on by telegraph, with not even a thought or suggestion of confirmatory letters, in a fashion so informal that it would shock the teacher of an American business college. Instructing a grocer in the gentle art of order Ing a case of eggs from the commis sion merchant. About such things as these, the Chinese will not be formal, unless, Indeed, we remember that the edict of abdication might not hauve been legal had it not been noted that it was published In vermillion ink. As to wearing apparel, the Chinese Is so scrupulously ceremonious that the occidental mind is baffled In its attempts to follow him, When ev erybody knows that the character stic queue was imposed upon thile Chinese by their Manchu conquerers as a badge of servitude, naturally it became the business of the Chinese revolutionists to cut off the queue, and in some cities, such as the republi can capital of Nanking, practically ev ery queue has long since disappeared. Republican China will be short-haired. At the time Wu Ting Fang was acting as minister of foreign affairs for the republican government, he de voted apparently as much attention to the sartorial aspects of the, revolution as to the diplomatic and political sit uation. He Issued a manifesto to the world asking for recognition of the Chinese republic, and at the same time be published a fashion plate setting forth new styles of hats to be worht Instead.of the ordinary headgear, each type of which, in some way or other. related to the 'Manchu domination. It Is in. these by-products of the polltical revolution that everyday life in China will be changed. It is true that twhen the abdication of the throne was announced there were no celebrations and Illuminations such as would have followed similar events in a western country, but because the effects are not those that would be reasonably expected by westerners, it is a mistake 'o assumne that there are no effects at all. When Dr. ,un Yat Ben, whose status as an American citizen hlas )been of fiolally determined by the authorities at Washington, arrived in China, ha was at once elected lsrealdent or the republic by the provislonnl govern ment at Nanking. Just before pro ceeding from ShanghaI to the repub lican capital he pleked up an Amerl can paper, published In ihainghai by American journalists in the Engllish language, and in that lapehr he saw the following "want ad:" "MOTOR CAR-1 E.

He answered the ad, bought the cars, and took them swith him to his cap Ital. He also took with him a corps or electrlclans and other mechanics. When he arrivend he took possessilon of the old vice regal yemen, or palace. He dlscarded the ancient rickety chariot of state that had been the feature of many ceremonial proces. sIons under Imperial rule and enlbtl tuled for it an American motor ear. The electricians immediately set to work, and on the second day the new presldent of (China had electric llghts throughout his palace, a system ..o electric call bells and annunciators In his oftlces, and a telephone exchange under way.

Woman," Miss Tarbell says, "The post consplcuous occupation of the American woman today, dressing her self aeide, is self-discusaion," and furi ther, "to an accustomied observer she seems always to be running about on the face of things, with no other pur poeo than to put in her time." These are serious Indictments. Are we guilty? That Iwomen spend a great deal too much time and thought and money on dress cannot be denied. Women whose chief occupation Is the social game, do seem, in the last analy als, to be running about with no other real ptrpose than putting In their time. But I do not agree with Miss Tarbell that it Is the rebellion or women a.aint their plame in nature th¢t causdtW his wv.ngftU use of time and energy, Quite the oontruy, Idlshoes luxury, either directly or by example are the cause of these evil tendenoles Ia womsae Uve1n, ,as In mea's, ia, -outnti .p, in t eyent that south ern repuibh JeWil esist all effort. of Yuan ftherners to re. tain the Ci l.. . tg.

One day after President Sun Yat Seli's announcement, a qonipany with a cap Ital of a quarter of a million dollars was organited to build a new hotel in Nanking, and Sun Tat cen had won over to his side all of the business community of Shanghai, the New York of the orient. The Amerltan influen.n In the rev olution, and in Its social by-products, is most marked. Dr. Sun is an Amer lcan cltlsen, Dr. Wu is more at home In Washington than in Canton, and scores of the subordinate republican leaders were educatdd in the United States. Even the suffragette move ment, which already has made its ap pearance in China, has an American, rather than an 'English, flavor.

Ban Francisco, Feb. 28.-A collection of diamonds and pearls valued at $M0, 000 was stolen from Mrs. Eugene Dc sable at her apartments In a local hotel hero early WeVdnesday morning. The Jewels had been worn to the an nual Mardi Gras ball, a notable so clety event at the same hotel, and had been left on her chiffonier by Mrs. De Sabla when she returned. Her hus band entering the room an hour later, discovered the theft. Among the gems stolen was a dia mond tiara, a pearl brooch, a diamond bracelet; several diamond finger ringls diamond earrings end a diamond studded lorgnette and chain. The De Salbas live In El Cerrito, a fashion able suburb of San Francisco, and used the hotel apartment for prepara tion for the ball. Mrs. De Sabla was accompanied by her daughter, Miss Vera De Babla, and her maid, both of whom declare she wore all the Jewels when she retired. According to friends she expressed uneasiness regarding the gems during the evening and hesltated to enter a crowded elevator to go to her apart ments at 3 o'clock in the morning, after leaving the ballroom. Miss De labla' and her maid assisted Mrs. De Sabla In removing her jewels and withdrew when she was ready to re tire. "When T entered the rooms," said Mr. Do " able, "the doors were un locked. Mrs. Doe able was awakened when' I entered and asked me how I1 had gained entrance to the rooms, as she had not erpected me' and Ihad lodked the door.
