Clear the track for the stork. Spike the switches and forget the speed limit when the doctor is rushing to meet the long-legged bird. 'he wise ruling of a New York judge holds that there Is no limit to be placed upon the speed which a phystician may make along the street In an automobile when he is racing with the stork. Two doctors had been arrested for going at top speed through Brooklyn streets. They made the plea of a justlfiabllo emergency and stated, in explanatinl, that they were answering a call to make a date with the stork. Where upon the learned Judge handed down this opinion and released the doctors: "Officer," said the magistrate to the policeman who made the arrests, ")ou ought to exercise leniency in such cases. When a doctor Is racing with the stork, he Is justified in putting on speed. The subject is one in which I am keenly interested, for the stork brought the finest baby boy In the world to my house Monday night." There will be no recall of this de clslon. A REAL PROBLEM. If the new city administration tries to solve the ever-present problem of the social evil in Missoula it will find that it has on hand something that will call for Its best judgment and all of its executive ability. In the ideal community, of course, there could be nothing as flagrantly vile as a re stricted district is and will always be. Yet, there is no such thing as an ideal community. There are, of course, Utoplans who dream that there will come the day when every man lives as he should and there is perfect peace and perfect happiness. That day is not here and will not come-at least It is not to be expected before the present triumvirate has retired from active work as city executives. As long as human nature is what it is, there will be such things as that which we have on West Pront street, the protection from vice by vice. The oretically, this is all wrong, absolutely false, yet, in the light of pant experi ence, what can Missoula do, other than to seek to regulate? It is a ques tion that is as old as the wiorld, as ancient as sin Itself, as detestable as the Faite.n Angel, but it Is also new, a l,roblem that asserts itself from a new angle with rach season. iThe integrity of the nation is "in trial. lHow far anill ctrruption go tln chel.ckeld.

The eight delegates-at-latge pie Theodore Roosevelt were elected by pluralities. . of ,00 each Charles S. Baxter, who headed the e ticket, re ceived 9,551 votes more than W. Mu the leader of the Taft ticket, The Massachusa ade these pledges on the ballot binding on the del acted. But the law, which was brand new an ined many imperfections, placed on the ballot a "p ce" vote In addition to the pledge of the candidates. re Taft ad. herents than Roosevelt Adherents voted Cin preference column. The result was that although th. oseIelt dele gates-at-large were elected by decisive plug es of 9,000, the preference vote, not binding under the ý, was given to Mr. Taft by 3,623. On the day following the primary, Colonel Roosevelt tele graphed to the Massachusetts delegatesat-largp,, elected by 9,000 plurality under a pledge to vote for iIm, that they must vote for Mr. Taft, as the preference incated that to be the will of the people of Massachusetts. Hesaid: "In this fight I am standing for certain gt principles which I regard as vital to the present and Mje welfare of the nation. My success is of value only as qia incident to securing the triumph of these principles. Frgonost among these principles is the right of the people totule and the duty of their representatives really to regr~aent them, in nominating conventions no less than in exeeutive or legis lative offices." Three weeks later Ohio held its primary election. Roose velt carried seventeen of the twenty-one congressional dis tricts. The only preference vote on the ballot was the total cast for the delegates pledged to each candidate. On this total President Taft was repudiated by a majority of about 63,000. Roosevelt was shown to be the choice of the re publicans of Ohio by a plurality of 47,000 over Taft. By that overwhelming figure the republicans of Ohio instructed their state convention to elect six delegates-at-large pledged to Theodore Roosevelt. But the state convention was made up largely of.piffling politicians under the domination of the corrupt machines and the peddlers of federal patronage. In this juncture, President Taft emulated Roosevelt's ex ample. He, too, sent a telegram. Did he urge his managers in Ohio to follow the plain in structions of the people delivered by a plurality of 47,000? Oh, no; President Taft doesn't believe in rule by the gusty passions of the mob. He is unalterably opposed to, the tyranny of the majority. He is for "government by a rep resentative part of the people;" that is, by the bosses and corrupt interests. So his telegram was different from that of Colonel Roosevelt's. He ordered that his followers should fight for the dele gates-at-large, and added: "The principles that we represent are too important to the country to lose anything by our voluntahy concession. I hope, therefore, that you and my friends will press the contest to the end in the state convention." And so, the corrupt gang cheated the people of Ohio and elected six delegates-at-large pledged to Taft, thus scoring a triumph for the principles Mr. Taft represents.

The platform adopted by the radical colhnventioln struck at Lincoln for suspendtL iing the atIenLs corpus, and then included tills resolution: "That the ctonfliatlionl of the lands of the rebela and their distribution among the suldlerr and actual settlers is a measure of allttie." The regular republlican convention, or, strletly speaking, the union conven tion, met in Hultitlore on Tuesday. On the haturday night before there was a meeting of republicula chiefs and big wig in New York, at which it was lproposed to statnpedt the convention to Uenerul Orant. ButL this could not he accompllished, andl when the con vention met, Lint.olhi.n nomination war generally concetdedl, ilthough there was a strong ,undercutrrent of opposition and tear on tile part of the Lincoln men of a stamlpede. The New York Herald corespondentt on the ground said: "Were It not for the fact that nearly two-thirds of the convention are officeholders. lncoln could not ibe nminated." It was remarkable that practically every delehgate from New lEnglalnd waus a postmllnter or a holder of somne other federal or civil office. And tile newspapers of the oppisltlon (at this time they were nearly all of the opplosition) united In declaring that the renomination and re-election of Ilndoln not only would destroy the Union, but it would work "ruin and destruction t,o tho whole republican system of governlment." There were IL great many war demo crats In the. l3altimort convention, and those centered their plposition to the renomination of Htanlhat Hamlln for vice president, because they thought that democrats ought to have a repre sentative on the union ticket, In this they were supported by Mr. Lincoln's friends, and the result war that. An drew Johnson of Tennessee, a war democrat who had refused to follow ihis state out of the Union, wasnominated for second place on the ticket. The great fight in the convention came on the platform and on the ques tion of admitting delegates fiom south ern states 'where reconstruction gov ernments had been set ,up by IAnooln Thaddeaus Stevens, th6 leader of the hottlU Ot representatives, a ra*41oa and enthepto the adopt a l ela etitity fut esthee satee did not Atvel t r be *ede, and tbht, the rtehe, 'wereW9 S tci*uat dl? i 4 - cona tton, but hereir . atre it thegp . was to be prepitt gress and President Joha, to coune, no :mn then. knew how 4ar was ULecoln's tragic end.

Johnson was nomlant .fe-br president on the filrst ballot. The demooratlo convention met in Chicago on August !e, a date late in the year. Long before the convention met It was apparent that the demp erats had concentrated upon General MeClellan as their candidate. The campaignm opened, In fact, before the democratic nomination was made, so certain was the country that McCOlellan would be named. On August U3, a weekbeforethe demo cratic convention met, President Ltn coln wrotd and signed a paper, which he sealed and delivered to the secre tary of the navy, Gideon Welles, with Instructions not .to open it until ater the election. This paper read: T'his morning, as for some days paut, it seems exceedingly probable that this administration will not be re-elected. Then it will be my duty to co-operate with the president-elect, so as to save the Union between the election and Inauguration, as he will have secured his election on such grounds that he cannot possibly save It afterward." The democrats met six days later In Chicago, and it Is certain that they shared Lincoln's belief that the man they were to nominate would he elect ed. It was, perhaps, this confidence. or, perhaps, that genius for blundering which, the republicans say, always characterises the democratic party that cauled them adopt the platform they "did. There were two elements In the democratic party at the time war democrats and peace democrats. Most of the war democrats were for Lincoln, and this left the convention in control of the peace democrats. Tam many hall was powerful, but Wall street was more powerful, and Wall street was against the war. Thus it was that the convention adopted a platform calling for an armistice look ing to an ultimate convention of the states, and thus it was that the war was declared a failure. General Mc Clellan was duly nominated for presi eont and (loorge H. Pendleton of Ohio for vice president. The convention had hardly ad journed until it aens apparent that the "war-is-a-failure" platform was re sented by the whole people. General McClellan. the nominee, was quick to repudiate it. No candidate. chosen by a national convention ever before or since has so definitely and positively repudiated every important feature of his party platform as did General Mc Clellan in 1864. The platform declared for peace first, the Union afterward; the candidate declared for the Union first, peace afterward. The platform said the war was a failure; the can didate said the war was a success. But the people believed In Lincoln, and, although it was a hard-fought campaign, and although states like New Jersey and Pennsylvania were carried for Lincoln only by the nar rowest of margins. McClellan carried only three states-New Jersey. Dela ware and Kentucky-and the nominees of the Union national convention, held in Baltimore, were triumphantly elected. Tomorrow-National Conventions.

PRESS AGENTS TALK OP THEIR SHOWS Tomorrow Night. Missoula has upon various occasions seen the Belasco finger index the way to that realm of perfection in drama turgy of which he alone is high priest and each production has disclosed an individuality absolutely its own. At the Harnois theater tomorrow evening, June 11, he will present his fascinating and vivacious star, Blanche Bates, in the delightful comedy success of last season, "Nobody's Widow," a 'histrionic departure diametrically op posite to anything he has heretofore presented with Miss Bates. Last season this comedy made the most distinct hit In New York, play ing at the Hudson theater for eight months with Miss Bates registering a personal success the equal of any of her former triumphs on emotional drama, her success as Roxana Clayton, "the widow," has even surpassed her enormous hit in "Madame Butterfly," "The Darling of the Gods"' and "The Girl of the Golden West," and inas much as "Nobody's Widow" is desig nated as a farcical romance, her trl umph as a comedlehoe is all the more emphatic. "Nobody's Widow" is a delightful comedy, as light and fascinating as thistledown and as deliciously effer vescent as a glass of champagne, with a novelty of motif and constructive quality that gives It a stability worthy of both Mr. Belasco and his star. Mr. Belasco retains her chief sup porting players of last season Includ ing Bruce McRae, Ade!aide Prince. Kenneth Hunter, Edith campbell, Alice Claire Elliott, Minor B. Watson, Arthur Hyman and others. The scenic Investiture, embellish ments and minute detail that have made the name of Belasco famous are conspicuously In evidence.
