Don't condemn the recall plan of Theodore Roosevelt's Columbus speech until you know what It Is. Withhold your approval, also, until you have ac. qualnted yourself with its suggestions. To our way of thinking, the Columbus speech was a high-class utterance. It was the result of careful study and of thoughtful preparation. It was any thing but the .mpulslve expression which Its assailants are seeking to make It appear. Read it over-it is not very long-and see if you do not think that the Robsevelt suggestion is Wise, reasoabhle and conservative in its treatment of judicial decisions. Per. haps we might have expected some thling more radical from Mr. Roose velt:, certainly such experiences as he had with Judge Baldwin of Connecti cut would warrant him in assuming a critical attitude. But the Columbus speech was thoughtful and scholarly; it was'the expression of a statesman and it will stand the 4et of the closest scrutiny. Those Who contend against the review of judicial decisions have but to remember the Buldwin case, already cited. This decision in volved the constitutionality of the erm ployerL' liability law, a safeguurd for the worker for which AMr. Roosevelt had striven earnestly; the Baldwin de cision was adverse to the law-yet the supreme court of the United States has sustained it. The finding of Judge Baldwin was all wrong. Yet he bristled up and got huffy because Mr. Roose velt criticised his decision. The Roose velt plan of review would protect the people in a case of this sort. It can not be that such a decision as that of adge Baldwin was unbiased-of *urAe, any man is likely to make a $Istake, but. it is not likely that an experineed lawyer would commit such blunder as Judge Baldwin fell into. ut, anyway. read carefully the Co. mbus speech. We are willing to hva it to your judgment. lBt do not 'IO in the antl-Roosevelt criticism you have formed an opinion of ur own. C . LIAN UP.

ANo longer is Missoula the only In aorporated munilcipality in Missoula a count,.. The dictum of the commla sloters, after a review of the speclal election vote, has made Ronan a "le- I gal town." The new municlpality is eaordially welcomed. We believe, the ) step which Ronan has taken will en able her to progress even more satis. factorlly than she has, heretofore. The town. is admirably situated; It is In the center of a region that 18 wonder fully productive; its citisenry is pro-.I gressive and energetic. The adoption of a local form of government will make possible many Improvements which could not be made without it. We expect great things from Ronan and we are confident that we shall not be disappointed. We extend feliota. t tions to the new town and the hope d that her experience will fully warrant 1 a the long step ahead which she has a just taken. President Madero has had experi- 1i ence enough to know that a #and of v rurnles is much more effective In the t enforcement of a blockade than a o proclamation.

In Thought for Today The Uneasy Woman. By Mrs. Robert M. La Follette The typleal uneasy woman regards man as a tyrant, cutting her off from education, freedom of speech, and the ballot, says IMiss Tarbell in the Janu ary American, 8he cites a "List of Grievances" adopted 60 years ago as the basis of a revolt which she says has gone on over since. Whatever "declaration of senti ment" the early pioneers may have made in their hard struggle for a cause, Miss Tarbell is surely wrong in assuming that the women of to day, who believe In education, free dom of speech aed the ballot, are in revolt against the tyranny of men. The tyranny of women is the greatest obstacle to the r.rresse of women, Good women, lWttb .good homes, goon husbands, sood obildren, good soolal position, are naturally 9O(y and con tbnted with what Miss '.tarlti oalls -tie '.3 usi. h .o g .'jomtuih" aen i ia ltoSU, cpgioitunities and S *$O F.9p ng cause of ESl Once again the Amerlcan has registtred a 'notable vip determinling the cause of one world's dreaded dieases i Stfeerw.

This discovery adds one moae to the li class of Insects which are the medinu ti of spreading dangerous diseases. Just il as the mosquito is responsible totr yet. It low fever and malaria., so the tla, Is i responsible for bubonic plague, and in pedeculidae for typhus. How Muchl 1 further this line of Investigation will ti enrry the medical world, none of its authorities can predict, but the.posstl bility of discovering other dis.ases which are almost or quite wholly in sect-borne Is freely conceded. Contrary to general belief, t*phu)i fever exists in the shlme of mtn~ I n cities, notably in New York. Per years patients have been going to the hospI . tale on the east side in New YOilr cdtone cases were diagnosed as typhoid fever. In 1898 Dr. Nathan B. BDrill that city reported 17 cases of a disese ti. which clinically resembled typhoid, but which was without ,what is medle ally known as the Widal re-action. g He studied those cases carefully iand gave the points of difference bedw this group of cases and thlb usual typle of typholid. In 1910 he reported oer 221 cases in an east side hospital, which he had observed In a period of 13 years. Dr. Brill described the disease 'a of. unknown origin and unknown pathol ogy, characterised by a short period of Incubation, usually four or five days's. l followed by a period of Intense head ache and continuous fever, lasting about two weeks, after which It dis- he appears quickly. Later he observed 84 pu cases in the same hospital, all in a single year, 1910. 'Plai report inoluded tr one case which proved fatal and upon th hlich an autopsy was performed. th Prom material obtained from this au* r topsy Dr. Brill inoculated three maon- , keys, each by a different method. None of the animals contracted the disease. ml Later he inoculated two more with thi blood obtained from patients in the tai hospital, and they went scot free. His Of final conclusion was that in the ab fi sence of better proof than he possessed t'e dilease was different from typhus. In 1911 Dr. a. A. Frlendman declare d It iis -belief that Brill's disease was to the same as moderate cases of typhus. About the time that Brill was ptM paring his second paper on the disease he which had come to hear his name, i Dra. Anderson and Goldberger were tut engaged In the study of Mexican ty , phus, and became Impressed with the ti apparently similar symptoms In then two diseases. They sought an oppor- s tunity to study a case of Brill's di case first band, which came In SOpp. tember last year. Blood was drawn from the arm vein. of the patient, defibrlnated, and used, to Inoculate two rhesus monkeys, and the same operation uwas repeated on a two other monkeys the day follow with the addition of an equal amoupt of normal salt solution. The flr£t1 monkey went through unscathed. T4Ib second one contracted the disease a4p went through all Its stages to a coMt plate recovery. The third one was in'l poor condition at the time of Inooulla- 0o tion, refused to eat thereafter, and In six days It became advisable to ehloreo be form it. The fourth one died of p *i ai tonitis. When tile fever of the aeeltlu monkey was at its heIlht, blood W.li i drawn from Its heart, deflbrinated &ti4 's used to Inoculate two other monkl*oi r Both took the fever, but the one whiheh had the worst attack was selecte (orLr the further propaglatlon of the dIsiU. Since then it has been carried thro 1I monkey generations by Ilnoulo~l99 of blood.

This Is pouttnted for by the fact that the, body pareitee will not flourish in hot regons. The identification of typhus tever in the United States and of the merits of its transmission put a dif terent light on many of the mysterious epidemics variously known as "Jail fever' and "ship fever," "putrid fever" and the like. Such epidemios have not occurred except in unsanitary sur rbundings, and where all the laws of persona! hygiene were wholly neg leoted. The first recognised outbreak of ty phus fever is believed to have ooourred in Cyprus In the first qualter of the Sixteenth century, an epidemic which later swept over all Italy. It was this disease wtich ravaged the army of Charles V at the siege of Mets. In 1816-18 typhus raged throughout Eng land and Ireland. In Dublin a third of the population was attacked. In 1846-47 there was 1,300,000 cases in England and Ireland. In the Russian army during the Turco-Russian war more than halt of the entire force was attacked. Over 200,000 contracted the disease and nearly half died. It Is now pracically unkncnwn in the armies of the leading nations. (Tomorrow-The Glass Industry.) a ture. Mr. Roosevelt, by the way, seems to share this uncertainty. The middle name of the new lord mayor of London is Boor, which may or may not signify anything in par ticular. The French now think 'that Mona Lisa was stolen by an Amerlogn. But an American would never have left the frane. Dr. Sun, the new president of China, certainly sounds good to the news paper headline writers.

"I never feel good unless the tem perature is down to zero and the further down It goes the better I feel." This "twenty greatest" business is getting on our nerves. Yesterday we received a pink note from a pale lady, asking us to name' the twenty greatest humorists in the world's his tory. Beyond the peradventure of a dotbt the twenty greatest humorists are or were Nero, Jonah, Rameses II., H. Rider Haggard, Hank James, Con fuclus, Connie Mack, Dante, Russell Sage, Benedict Arnold, Prebldent Castro, Muggay McGraw, Old Scrooge, Simon Legree, Blue Beard, Senator Aldrich, Henry VIII., Jesse James, John D. ltockefeller and the man who invented the gown that hooks up the back, ficlent to finish the 'btbuble." That statement proves two things: First, that there has been a, reduction of ex pense in the last six years, whether due to the commission system or not. Second, that the $50,000 saving state ment was grossely exaggerated and has served no purpose but to decelve the taxpayers. I want the mayor to get the laws of the last legislative session provididl for the commission system and read' section 8, page 111. Read it over and over until Its full meaning is appar ent, and then tell the taxpayers of 'Missoula why you have not obeyed the law, which is as ollows: 'Wection s6. The council shall each month print in pamphlet form a de tailed itemisaed statement of all re oetpts and expenses of the city andm summary of its proceedings during the preceding month, and furnish printed copies thereof to the state li brary and city library, the daily news., papers of the city, and to the persons who shall apply therefor at the office of the city clerk."
