Commencement has become a prominent date in Mlssoula's calendar. and each year finds its significance growing througliout all Montana Commencement, this year, possesses more than usual asig nificance, for it marks not only the passing of another clas. of graduates from the portal.:of the university into the world, but it brings, as well, the severance of the relations which have for four years existed between the university and its president, Dr. C. A. Duniway. The class of 1912 entered the university as President Duniway took up the duties of his office. Its departure is coincident with his. The four years which close with the ceremonies of this week have been important in the history of the university. How great has been their influence for good may not, right now, be apparent. But when the history of the development of the university is written, these four years will be accorded place among the notably important epochs in the university's growth toward the ideal which has been set for it. These years have brought the establishment of a higher standard for the work of the University of Montana. The class which graduates this week has done work of high grade; its diplomas stand for more and for better work than is the case in most western institutions. Experts who have inquired into the conditions at the university have paid high tribute to its excellence; the university has been given good standing among the higher schools of the west. To those whose judgment of the standing of a school is based upon the enrollment totals, this improvement in stand ing may not count for much. To those who know the value of merit as a determining factor in the success of a college, the betterment of the university's rank counts for a great deal. It required courage to do away with the preparatory de partment, for there is undeniably a tendency in Montana to judge of the worth of a school by the number of students which it enrolls and the preparatory department added ma terially to the enrollment showing of the university. But whatever handicap in point of numbers was entailed in this step forward and upward, was speedily overcome. After the first year of President Duniway's term, the en rollment of students of collegiate grade increased steadily. Each year this number has shown in excess of that recorded by the state college of agriculture. This year there are 203 students of collegiate grade in the university against 183 in the agricultural college. In the work which is required of the students at the uni versity, there has been a constantly improving standard. This standard is not merely a theoretical requirement; it is rigidly enforced. Under the administration of the univer. sity the student's credits are actually, earned before he re ceives them. The degrees which will be conferred at the university this week mean something. They represent earnest work and conscientious effort. The members of this year's class may well take pride in what they have accomplished. The standard of requirement at the University of Montana has been so fixed that the institution commands the respect of educators the country over. These thoughts are naturally suggested by the conditions which attend this year's commencement week. With his farewell to the members of this class, President Duniway says goodbye, also, to the institution whose affairs he has administered so conscientiously and to whose service he brought scholarship of rare quality. Commencement week-it brights back to the university many of those who have gone forth at other commence ments and whose loyalty to their alma mater has waxed stronger with the passing years. It brights back many of those who have wrought their best for the advancement of the interests of the institution. It brings young people who are planning to identify themselves with the university in the year ahead. It assembles friends whose sole purpose is the promotion of the university's welfare. Out of the discussions of the week let us hope that there may come a unity bf action and a devotion to purpose which will accom plish much. Last week brought the acceptance of Dr. E. B, Craig head of the proffered presidency of the university here. Dr. Craighead brings to Montana a high reputation as an administrative officer; he has made a record at Tulane university which has won him a place among the prominent educators of the country. He will find here a state whose people are earnest in their wish to see the university prosper and who are anxious to extend whatever aid they can to advance its interests. They receive him as one who is to work with them for the attainment of their ideal re garding the university and as one to whom they intrust with confidence the administration of its affairs.

FIFTY YEARS OF FREE HOMES -The new homestead bill, one cal. tulated to help still more the man who desires to win for himself a home from the domain of Uncle .am, marks the semi-centennial of free homes. When, on May 27, 152, Pres ident Lincoln placed his signature to the homestead bill, the United States made a departure among the nations in land allotment to the people. Un der that act, citisens of the United Jltates, heads of families, widows, even aliens who had declared their intentions of becoming citizens, could enter upon 160 aseres of unapproprl ated public lands of the class rated at $1.25 an acre, or on 80 acres of the class rated at $.60 -an acre, .paying only the cost of survey, of from $5 to $10, and, after occupying and cultl vatitg it for five years, they could receive title or ownership. The class of lands rated at $2t.0 an acre was that reserved in alterpate sections by the government In grants to railroads. This marked the first time in history that lands in a pQbili domain were handed over to the people, in stated quantities. The law is still on the statute book, with the modifications that time and altered conditions have brought, but the area of desi~pble lands that can be ohtained under It ha shrunllllk to comparative smnllness, of course'. Tile free-lunds act of 1562 was supplemented by the national irrigation act of 1901, which gave birth to the reclamation service. In the half century which has elapsed since tihe free-homnes act was silgned m.any states have been created west of the Milssisippl. In order of their advent, these are: Nevada. Nebraska, •colorado, North Dakota, South Da- I kota, Montana, Washington, Idaho, W)omling," Utah, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Arizona. There are thir teen of these states, as 'many as in the original coalition of the colonies. The homestead act has built upl these state. hlas made their statehood poa ablhe, has made them into wonder fully rich commonwealths from un citullred wastes. Tlhe homestead act, its father, Oalusha A. Grow of Penn- 1 :sylvania, tihe pen and judgment of Lincolnn-these have made trhe west., otur Wcst. This commencement week adds ma terlully to the universitys. power for nood in the state. The workers sent out are worthy of their honors. Thte departure of one class means the advent of another. The good work ;oes on unceasingly. That's what makes It effective. Onod wishes tnunt for more than tood advice-the former a"e likely to be sincere; the latter is usually per functory. The graduate isa outnd to give us some advice; he gets so mulrh that it is only fair that he should recipro oatt. Nor is there any use l trying to crowd into a brief address all that should have been given in four years. The week's toast la that proposed by the university's first, president: "The University-It Must Prosper." The state has given these young people the beat she had to give: It's up to them to be worthy of It. Don't regard the graduate as over bold. He has to assume that air to conceal his stage fright.. These are the days when olaa.-room diligence countls for more thrit devo tion to the track. June and graduates and oss- these make these the hppielt 41Ys0 'o the year.

The Wall street paper says: Roosevelt Hae Won." "The political situation callst for action on the part or business men. It is each day assumisr a more thr.ntening character. The result of the state primaries in OOhio which every one conceded In' advance would he decisive on the chances foir the republican presidential nomination of President Taft and ex-Prelident Roosevelt, has been that Mr. Rodkevelt gbtSa s of the district delegates to the republican convention, while Mr. Taft gets only 10. Who will get the delegates-nt-lnrge from that state seems yet to be In doubt. "This triumph by Mr. Roosevelt in Afr. Tart's own state, following the other Roosevelt successes the present month-in Maryland, In Texas, In Min nesota, in California, In Wsht Vlrginia, etc.--and the still more notable vic tories achieved the previousrmonth In Illinoais and Pennsylvania, makes Mr. Roosevelt's nomination by the national republican convention at Chicago next month almost a foregone conclusion. "We are aware, of clrase, that Mr. Taft still insists that his own nomina tion is certain and that some of the Taft adherents (not a great many., however) keep echoing the same view; hut, unfortunately, there is only too much reason for thinking that Mr. Taft Is decelving himself. On the face of the figures Mr. Taft has enoughl delegates to give him the nomination, but the Taft delegates in goodl part are only lukewarm In his support, and there is more or less tendency to de fection all through the ranks of the Taft adherents. On the other hand, Mr. Roosevelt is surrounded by a hand of political sealots who will fight with him to the very end. "Let no one, therefore, minimise the possibility of Mr. Roosevelt's nomina tion and still less the menace involved in such a nomination. As the coveted prise In gradually getting 'within his grasp, he Ia becoming more and more arrogant and defiant of those who are opposing him. There has naturally been considerable talk of a compromise by which both the contestants would be eliminated from the field. With such a bitter waffare between these two men and with the party rent asunder as a result of the enmity that has been engendered among their respective ad herents, such a compromise might be the very heat way out of the trouble. "But Mr. Roosevelt has this week repudiated anew (he rejected the idea at the very outset of his campaign) all talk of a compromise as far ase he4im self is concerned. His words are worth recording here as an Indication of the character of the man and of the spirit actuating him. Speaking on Monday night, on the eve of the next day's pri mnaries in Ohio, he boasted that he twould be victorious, and then dis posed of the suggestions of a compro mise as follows: "I'll name the com promise candidate. He'll be me. I'll name the compromise platform. It will be our platform.' Turn to Demoorats. "The duty incumbent upon business men is to bring pressure to bear everywhere upon the democratic party, with the view to securing the nomina tion of a democrat for president of the right sort, around whom men of all shades of political opinion who abhor the Roosevelt policies and doctrines could rally. The danger is that the democrats will simply oppose Roose. velt, the man, and then declare tar practically the same radical policies as Roosevelt himself. "There would in that event bhe no cholce except a choice of evils, and ac cordingly Mr. Roosevelt would be tri umphantly elected. That Is, indeed, what Mr. Roosevelt himself is confi dently counting on. What was con demned in Willlam J. Bryan 18 years ago is now embmdled in Roosevelt, and no democrat who might he nominated could out-radical the ex-president in radicalism. The democrats . can only hope to succeed by nominating a man who will attract the conservative part of the population. By naming.:Bryan or some puppet of his or of Hearst, they will be repelling the conservatlve republicans who are anxious to turi from Roosevelt, but who will not vote for a democrat permeated with' the same pernicious Ideas. " "When we ask the business omqpmu. nity to interest Itself on behalf of the selection of a well-balanced democrat, Wve appeal to the business world as, a whole, in the truest and best senrs of the word, and have no special reference to Wall street' or of the financial In terests centered there, Oppopdttla. to Mr. Roosevelt and his dootrines inithe financial 'district is by no mearns as strong as might be supposed, recalling how these interests suffered-during Mr. Roosevelt"s incumbency of the presi dential office. It is patent, of courie. that in his present campaign for the nomination, he is in possession of ul limited means, and it is also well known that certain leaders in the f1 nanclal and Industrial 'world are open and avowed hbampiobs of hie. ZIt this we believe these men are .maklng a grave mistake..

Thll is a fatuous and a dangerous policy With Mr. Roosevelt again In the preas Idential chair we would never know th worst. He is dependent for his suec ceas entirely upon appeals to the vi. clous, and the ignorant and the unin. formed. To prevent the defection ol these classes he would constantly be making new bids for their support. "We understand, of course, that those industrial and financlal leaders who ad vocate the nomination apd election of the ex-president do so because the lat ter advocates vesting the government with supreme control over industrial corporations and trade combinations. These men believe they would then be no longer subject to trust suits and goveirment prosecutions. They enter taln the fond hope that all that would then be necessary would be to submit their plans to the commissioner of cor porations or some other government of. fidlal, and thereafter everything would be plain sailing. "8upposing that this should ie the result, It would be the worst possible thing that could happen. Favorltlsm would inevitably rule and it would quickly appear that the arrangement would work to the satisfaction only of the clique that stood well with those in power. "The crying necessity is that business affairs should be relieved as far as possible from disturbing govermental and political influence. Proper laws for the regulation of large combina tions are necessary, but the power to decide whether the laws have been vlio lated should rest with the courts, who are not amendable to political consider ations, and not be delegated to ai bureau or official of the executive department, who will always be tempted to pander to the populace in order to retain offire. "An acceptable Democratic candidate will be one who shall dec'lare uncom prbmislng adherence to constitutional standards and who will seek to remove any evils that may have developed in connection with the conduct of large corporations without injecting govern ment further into business and without making the carrying on of Ilsinciss dependent upon political favor or influ ence. The vast majority of the voters In both parties would flock to the sup port of such a candidate. "The people of this country believe In live and let live. They are not ex tremists. They are well satisfied with our institutions and With out constitn tion and form, of government. The popular discontent and the spirit of unrest, about which one hears so much, exists mainly In the imagination of the politicilans, particularly those of the Roosevelt type, who seek to promote discord in order to advance their own selfilsh ends. We are sure that our voting population will declare itself emphatically to that end If given an opportunity so to do. This opportunity will be denied them if a Roosevelt radical is opposed by a Democratic rad lcal hardly less objectionable. "The situation today is closely akin to that bf sixteen years ago, with this difference, that then the point at issue was the maintenance of our monetary standard, while today the issue is in effect the preservation of the system of government establlashdd by the' fram ers of the constltutlon with its rare fully devised s'ystem of cheeks and balances. "We believe ihat today the country would go overwhelmnly against Roose volt jf a clear-cut contest should he provided between the opposing candl. dates. To be called upon- to choose ,between two radicals would deolde nothing and be conclusive of nothing, On the other hadd, were a sound Demo crat pitted against Mr. Roosevelt, we would..quickly know where the country stood. If, Mr. Roosevelt should be chosen anew, it would prove that radlcallsm was dominant and trium plant In this country. lvery.none would then abide by the judgment and oct aoccoringly. On the other hand, if success rested with the moderates, that would mean an end to the turmoil thpt has disturbed the country during the last dozen years. "Will not the business community undertake to impress upon the Demo orats what kind of a man is needed, and will not the Democrats be at once sensible enough and patriotic enough to present such a man for the suffrages of the peoa)le?" Tory Lsedors S.e , Wlahlington, June 1. -The first In iistionas ot sOurl rdrr by ' tl special privilege representatives in houN. and senate to the overwhelming Rooaeaelt sentiment was given tills week. In the senate they came from GAklinger of New Hampshire, one of the men named by Theodore Roosevelt as reprebAtting the corrupt combination ' between big holiness and politics. In the house They (came from no less a person than "Joe" 'annon himself. Speaking in the senate, OGalitger said, in reply to predictions from the democratic aide that a democrat will he elected president: "I am opposed to the nomination of colonel Roosevelt and will work against it, but there is not a democratic senator who would not gladly contribute to a campaign fund to see that he is not nominated. F'urthermore. every senator on the other side of the chamber is trembling In his boots for fear he will be nom Inuted, because every senator knows he will be elected if nominated." Former Speaker Cannon declared in the house that there had been more legislation during the seven years that Roosevelt was president and Cannon himself was speaker, for the benefit of workingmen than in all the terms of the other pI'esidents and ail the other speakers put together. Cannon was hurling a bouquet at 'Roosevelt in order to hurl one of equal size at himself, Iut It was the first time in five years thats Cannon has been able to speak of Roosevelt without foaming at the mouth. It is denied by all the reactionaries and Taft men that these declarations today could be regarded as wild dashes for the Roosevelt band wagon by the two anclent, if not venerable, special privilege Iehders. (lallinger and Cannon are declared to be as determined In their ppposition to Itonoavelt as ever, but are, neverthe less, capable of recognizing the Ihevlt able. Oallinger was not trying to say a good word for Roosevelt, but was imerely calling attention to what everyomne about the capital knows- that the democrats are trembling In their shoes because they believe Roose velt will be nominated and elected. l'o admit this truth, however, places tlalllnger, and the Taft-Lorlmer minor ity to which he belongs, in the attitude Sof conceding that Roosevelt can he elected if nominated, and stilt demand Ing that Taft, who cannot possibly be elected, shall be nominated. It ii an argrnment that will not strengthen Taft either in the convention or with the lmembers of the national committee. As a fact, it ls conceded that, of the republican members of the house, not less than four-fifths of them are now for Roosevelt. They believe the Roose velt strength in the election will serve to re-elect them also. They are say ing nothing, because a few weeks ago, when Taft's nomination appeared to be certain and Roosevelt was not believed to have a chance, these same republic an members recklessly declared them selves for Taft. Now they would giva allything to recall those declarations. SPECIA.L GRAND JURY ORDERID,.
