WtIALACE RII IS SOLID I6CANDIDATE POR MAYOR STATU$ HIS POSITIO PLAINLY AIOD OSITIVgLY. Citisens and Voters of Mlspoula Having announced my candidacy for the nomination for mayor of Missoula, I deem It fitting to let the people know my attitude on matters of pub lic ,cncelrn. I a'n for moving steadily forward alonr all lines of improvement in so cdal, mural and material welfare. "Hot.esty of purpose and honesty in statement" is an essential quality of an efficient pubile officer. If I shall be chosen to represent you, I assure you I shall have nothing to evade and nothing to conceal, where the public welfare is concerned. I shall divest myself of all personal or private interests that might In any manner conflict with my duties as an officer, or would interfere with the faithful performance of tly officila work I shall devote my tmne and en ergh i to the work of the city. It shall be my policy at all times: To use reasonable antl prudent economy in the management of the business and financial interests of the city. To dio Missoula's public work with Missoula's workingmen. To do all public work, so for as practical, by day labor, and without Importing transient labor. To reduce taxation and to lessetn the annual running expense wherever pos slble, keeping always in view the ipublic needs and efficient service. To encourage new industrial enter prises that will bring to Missoula a larger pay roll and add to the per manent citlzenship. To duly enforce the law accordingl to its intent and without discrimlna Lion. I shall print monthly "a detailed statement" of receipts and expendi tures, as required by law, so the peo ple may know where the money conmes from, where it goes, and whether or not it has been wisely and properly expended. As to the "social evil:" It is a can dltion, not a theory, thlilt mustl be handled. Comllmonl public decency do tmands time strictest regulation so'as to thoroughly minimise Its pernicious effects; that it be isolated and kept under proper police surveclllance. I stand for a "square yleai" to all. and an "even break" In the race for material progress. Each industry and business Interest Is entitled to equal conilderation and protection, under the law, so long as it is conducted ac cording to law, whether that Interest or business be individual, associate or corporate.

The notice of suspension give "lgeneral re trenohment" as the $oues. TO THEMEN OF MISSOULA I ask you to judge me by my record in behalf of your homes, your wives and your littles ones; not only in my work as commissioner, but as a school trustee, a member of the trades council and as a workingman, whether I have been honest and faithful, free from prejudice and not afraid of those higher up. Now I appeal for your support in my re-election and trust you will give me the same deal I have given you and help a workingman in protecting his character from the malicious falsehoods circulated by men, skilled in dirty politics, who try to throw discredit on a workingman's ability and to keep workingmen from having any opportunity to protect the interest of the union and laboring men of Missoula. I am one of yourselves and look to you for your support in my fight, as it is also your fight, to see that a man of your class should represent you on the city council. I rely on you to assist me in making Missoula a cleaner and better city. I am standing on the square deal and ask for the same in return, and will give my best ability to the best interests of the city. CUTHBERT PEAT AL'6'LALA LA Eus LOCAL BREVIIIES Spirella corsets.

WHY NOT THE MAYOR? While we are being entertained next Thursday evening by an investi gation to determine whether Mr. Peat was mistaken or correct about the city clerk's records, it will be very In teresting and useful to investigate 'Mr. Evans' statement that his admin Istration of finances reduced the debt of tile city about $56,000 within slx months. I say his administration be cause he should have the sole credit for this remarkable achievement lsnce neither of the commfslsoners claim any share in it. Their paltry savings of a tow thousands are insignificant in comparison. We would like to know where this large amount came from and by what means such a miraculous saving was made. 'My present belief is that the $56,000 was an advance n\ade from the general fund to the Improvement districts or similar purposes, a loan as it were, and when the improvement dlstrlcts'taxes were paid the loan was repaid, and my present belief is that Mr. .Dvans deliberately tried 0to des ceivo the people of 1lssoufa when he made the claim of a real reduction of the city debt. Acting' on' this belief, I shall vote and eork against tMr. vmans until be proves his claim, as I think many otthr wll do.a ..A It bshoevia s r --ant to huts, an, Invettiation as qUIokly .as oubhle. IThls ,poosble deolption is of much greater consequence than the one with which he charges Mr. Peat. The explanation given above about the $56.000 has been given me by per sons who should know about the mat ter, but it may be Incorrect. However, I shall not believe Mr. 1vans has stated the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth be fore the source of that $56,000 Is ex plained and it is shown to beankcetual and real saving and decrease of debt. VOTER. March 17, 1912. PRESS AGENTS TALK OF THEIR SHOWS Tonight. Tonight Is the night. l"or the past two years we have been hearing a great deal about that George M: Co han comedy, "Get-Rich-Quick Wal tingford;" the newspapers have praised It to the skies, and visitors to New York and Clticago, where tbh play has beets running for tile past two seasons, returned with wonderful stories regarding its rare qualities, its delightful satire and its wholesome, incessant humor. Since the announce. ment of its coming was made local in terest has been greatly aroused and the advance sale has beenl tremend ouls. Tonight, at the Harnois theater tllhe local public will be able to' enjoy the comedy at its best, for Cohan & Fisher have tent us the very best cast, with its au clever people and the same handsome stage settings which marked its eastern production. K3eorge M. Cohan nmade this p'ay from the pop ular stories by George Randolph Chester, which ran It the 8aturday Evenlng .Post, and its greatest inter. ost lies in the fact that there is scarcely a city in America that has not had experiences with Just such a likable, rascally promoter as J. Rufus Wallingford. At the Bijou. Tonight and Tuesday, five high-class photoplays will be shown, accom panied by the best songs and music. "The First Women Jury in America" pertains to California's women jurists, where women have fought for and se cured equal rights in the Golden state. You'll see how they act in the jurybox and deliberate on the case of a hand some young fellow being tried for libel. This is an up-to-date comedy that will tickle the men and please the ladies. "The Little Match Seller" is an in tense dramatic story of deep human interest. The scene is in winter around the holiday season, the story dealing with a little street urchin who is fascinated by the pretty Christmas toys in the show windows. "The Taos Indians at Home." This educational subject shows in detail the modes of living and cugtaMil praoticed by this almost extinct tribe of Pueblo Indians. The picture also shows a visit through the ruins of the old dlpanlih forts, and the famous Taos Indian potteries. "A Midget Sherlock Holmes," a Path. comedy, .

G-entlemen-We, the undersigned residents and taxpayers of Potomac, Missoula county, do respectfully re quest your co-operation with us In our efforts to abolish three saloons which are located In our conmunity; two of these are within 550 feet and one with In one anti one-fourth miles of our church and schoolhouse. Furthermore, our childrens' playground is within 200 feet of one of these saloons. Owing to the fact that the Anaconda Copper Mining company and the Western Lumber company are oper ating a number of logging camps in our vicinity, employing from 100 to 500 men, these saloons have become par ticularly undesirable to us. A great many of the lumbermen make these saloons their periodical headquarters, and the disgraceful scenes and language to which our wives, and especially our children, are subjected has brought us to a point where we will continue to do all that ies in our power to prevent the is- ' sulng of further licenses for Potomac. We ask of you your moral support and earnestly request of you as good citizens that you refuse to sign any petition to the county commissioners for the granting of any liquor lioene for the Potomac valley.
