No greater steal was ever perpetrated. What had been done by the interests in Mon tana on a smaller scale was repeated In Chicago in the national convention. These are the names of the Montana men who went upon record as oppos ing state primaries, as favoring the subversion of the will of the people to the will of the bosses-they are the men who voted for Taft: O. M. LANSTRUM, Lewis and Clark. EDWARD DONLAN, Missoula. D. J. CHARLES, Sllver Bow. GEORGE T. BAGGS, Ravalll. SAM STEPHENSON, Cascade. GEORGIE W. CLAY, Valley. J. E. KINNEY, Dawson. A. J,. WHILCOMB, Madison. These are the names of Montana men which appear on the Roosevelt roll: That is the representation of this state at Chicago. The theft of the Montana convention by the most un scrupulous political methods ever known in the state was followed by the stealing of the national nomina tion by the same piratical methods. The list of names, printed above, is one to be remembered. A GOOD MOVE. It Is the general opinion that the administration has done well in mak ing a start toward the establishing of a system of fire alarms in Missoula. In this move there is the relative economy of prevention, an ounce to a pound. Missoula has been highly for. tunate In the past in escaping disas trous fires, but this good luck can not last forever. As has been pointed out by the fire chief, a minute at the time the fire begins is worth an hour after it has its start. Missoula's fire-fight. Ing equipment is modern and ef i clent; the installation of a fire-signal system will give Missoula unusually good protection. THE WAITERS. The striking waiters of New York have decided to go back to work, which, under the circumstances, was about all they could do, for the pro prietors managed to get along nicely after s ftw days of discomfort. The small-town man, with the knowledge gained by occasional visits to the me tropolis, wonders what the waiters struck for, anywsy. Thay asked a fiaed scale of w.ges and recognition of their organisatlol, that they might be lIdependent of tips. Now, the waiter employ6d in a spo0 house In 1dw Tork will .e4th in tips mian ape # bh w i ty $sptfn, a- 1Po*e than be comld expect his employer to pay in a ~tmed seale." The only ad vantage to the waiter in dolng away with tips would be to give him a dir-. tain feeling of being a laborer worthy of his hire and not the object of semi-charity. It may be that the anti-tipping societies have been mak ing inroads og the waiter's income and that the caused the strike. Any way, things are as they were and one will have to tip the waiter as usual, providing one desires to be served on the same day the order was given. WISELY DONE. The action of the city oouncil yes terday morning, in refusing to place a coal dock in close proximity to pretty homes on the south side, was-it seems to us-the part of wisdom. If, as the advocates of the coal dock sul gested, the part of the city along the Bitter Root track on the south side is destined to be used for warehouses and material yards, the acquisition of the land for this purpose should be arranged in such a manner as not to injure the property into which men have put their money in order that they might have homes of their own. As we understand the plan which was proposed, It would have rendered practically worthless some of the very attractive homes In the vicinity of the proposed structure. We believe the dock can be located elsewhere just as well and that the people of that dis trict are entle:d to the protection which the action of the city council gives them. EIARS? The cty council this week laid upon the table a motion to establish a no bear policy for the management of Greenough park. It is not so long ago that most of us cannot remember It, when there was a protracted effort made to get rid of the bears and the other animals which had been placed In the uncomfortable and unattractive cages and pens of the park. After a considerable time, the animals were disposed of; the park was without a blemish. Now, from somewhere, some new bears have appeared and some body wants the city to take them. The past experience with the bears and their comrades would seem, to those who followed the ridiculous incidents connected with the initial experiment, to be convincing. We do not believe that the park needs bears to make It attractive. We do not believe that a majorjty of the people who visit the park want bears. We have heard much more in protest against the bears than we have heard in their be half. CRAZY CLOTHES. A fashion expert of London, in American correspondence, says that the women of England have decided that "clothes must be amusing," and that "funny frocks and cute coats are the thing." Says this expert: "Things now worn by women Include braces and skirts with trouser effects. Some of the hats are trimmed with two tennis racquets made of plush, with white stockings, little curate coats and cabmen's hats copied in straw." The every-day American culls braces "suspenders." "The predatory interests have no politics. They are with the party that serves them," says Mr. Bryan. In this instance they seem to be playing both ends. The Darroi. trial is proceeding and so is the training for the Fourth of r July fight, although they don't get space on the bulletin boards. When we get all of the inside his e tory of the Chicago convention, the theft will be found to be even greater than was supposed. The doom of the fly is sealed. A picture-show in Muncle, Ind., is giving a free ticket to everybody who can ° show 20 dead flies, f Now what will be done with the Lorimer case? Will the bosses be as e shortsighted in Washington as they awere In Chicago? There will be a great boom In the bandana business; in Missoula the t supply was exhausted the first day. The Baltimore galleries appear to ehave been packed as thoroughly, as r were those In the Coliseum. We do not believe Missoula will turn I down the progressive policy which has made her growth substantial. Hundreds of ships have been made safer since the Titanic went down. But the horse has been stolen. The southern delegates to Chicago' k return home satisfied that convention k, business is profitable. SLloyd-George, In London, had his hat y knocked off by suffragettes, but he kept his head. 5t Likewise, W. J. B.

Y The roller works as well for Mtir Me p;h .. it 14 .for. bný , The Hessians pile falsehood upti.~ta in their at tack upon J e Dixon. In the flSt Ia y iattribute to Mr. Dixon the lines which appearedn TT tisoullan yes terday morning. About the authbrship. ot ose lines, the Hessians know as much as they do about 'e conditions which they discuss relative to Mr. Dxiot jd the worthy service he has rendered Missoula. As a lpatter of fact, Mr. Dixon knows nothing'about what The Mat Ulian said yes. terday morning, nor will he know anythinj about it until he receives his copy of this newspaper in Washington. ,He did not know it was to be written; he does hot know it no But what was written stands unanswered and unchal lenged. The Missoulian said yesterday morning that the enemies of Mr. Dixon could not find anybody in Missoula or in Montana who would consent to undertake the dirty work which they had planned in this field, so they im ported the Hessians. These men are here, with their all in their gripsacks. They can leave between two days and yet take with them all of the interest they have in Missoula or in Missoula's welfare. They are not to blame; they are hired to do this despicable work, just as the Hessians of old were hired to kill American colonists. They are merely earning their money. The favorite metaphor of the Sentinel's editorial column is "polecat." It is natural that similes should be chosen from sources with which the chooser is most familiar. Themselves reeking with the odiferous effluvia of false hood, calumny and misrepresentation, the Hessians talk about that with which they are most familiar. But they are cowards. They fight after the manner of the bushwhacker. They have not even the courage to acknowledge that they are backed and supported by the Amalgamated people, though this is freely admitted in Butte and in Helena. The Missoulian said yesterday that Mr. Dixon has done more for Missoula and for Montana than any other man in public life. There is nobody who is familiar with con ditions who will deny this statement. It was Joe Dixon who introduced the long-and-short-haul amendment and who was largely instrumental in securing its passage in the face of all the opposition that the interests could muster. The whole northwest gives Mr. Dixon this credit, all except the little coterie which is represented by the Hessians. This is one of the public acts of Mr. Dixon which brought upon him the relentless opposition of the interests. This act saved to the people of Montana more than a million and a half dollars annually in freight rates. ,There is nobody who has lived in Missoula more than a year who does not know of the many other services which Mr. Dixon has rendered his constituents. The Sentinel lies when it says it has told the truth about Mr. Dixon. It has not told the truth; it has lied from start to finish. The Hessians will probably keep up their lick of abusing the man who hgs done so much for Missoula, for western Montana and for the whole state. They raised their black flag a little higher last night. They lie. That's the short and ugly word, but it's the word that fits. Women's Club Work IIl.-ln the Field of Art. By Frederiok J. Haskin Since the love of the) beabrtiful ia essentially a feminine characteristlc. it was most fitting that the subject of art should receive great attention from the earliest beginning of the women's club movement. There is hardly a club on the rolls of the gen eral federation which has not in some manner contributed towards securing a 'higher standard of art for the na tion, even though its efforts were con fined entirely to its own locality. One of the most popular publications of the federation Is its "Handbook of Art in Our Own ('ountry," which sum marizes what has been accomplished for art in America. it has been com piled through the united efforts of the club women of the nation and contains a list of the most artistic buildings in all of the more Important olties and all of their notable works of art. It has been widely circulated, not only through the clubs but among the II braries, museums, colleges and schools of the country. A companion volume, "Outlines for the ltudy of Art," has Ween pronounced of equal practical value. The federation as a whole has worked primarily for two objects, namely; the placing of all art objects Imported from foreign countries upon the free list, and the establishment of art commissions, both state and mnunclipal, throughout the country. In addition to this the clubs are work ing continually for the establishment of perm'anent art collections In each state capital, as welL as in other largel cities. The Women's club of St. Louis has established the nucleus of a per manent art collection for that city which will be augmented every year through its influence. 'Besides these general objects, the several state federations and also the Individual clubs continually v4e with each other in initiating special ac tivities for extending an interest in art in their own localities. 'More than half of the state federations now have traveling art collections which are shipped from one town to another, thus giving many clubs a chance to study from pictures which would otherwise be unobtainable in a small town. Iometimes states exchange their collections. During the past ear Ilinole has lent to Nebraska a col leotion of oil and water colors by well known Chioago artists, which have been widely circulated and greatly ap preciated 'by the clubs privileged to command their bene(its. In at, Louis a committee composfd of one mom ber from each of the city aqd suburban clublehMs made a nut.. O.f collectonos of repworrtlini Welll lýOwpf classic sculpture, together with art reference books to assist in their In telligent use. The first of these was sent to the canal gone, where it was much appreciated by the American women now living upon the Isthmus of Panama. others hate been dir culated among the rural towns of sev. eral surrounding statee with good re suits. The art study classes taking the gen. eral federation courses are Introducing Into their working plans subjects of general and popular interest Instead of confining themselves to the study of classic works of art which filled up their programs a few years ago. Now such subjects as "What can the women's club do to raise the standard of taste?" "What can be done to im prove dress and home decoration?" "What can be (lone to lead to a better appreciation of the wordi In the arts and crafts?" "What can the clubs do to influence civic life in the direc tion of the -beautiful?" are among the newer topics presented upon the club programs, With the realisation of the fact that true art lies only In a proper ap preciation of beauty wherever it is found, comes the discarding of mapy of the false and unnatural art stand ards which constituted the earlier art work In many clubs. Tilvery com munity has its objects of natural 'beauty and the art department of thp club should seek to encourage the ap predation of them and to secure their proper preservation. Sometimes priles are offered 'by clubs for the beat photograph of, the most distinctive trees of a town or of in artistic plc ture of some bit of neighborhood scenery. These pictures may be sk hibitod in the town library or in pub lie school buildings and afterwardb preserved for future use. (Perhaps the most extensive and popular work of the art departments of Women's clubs has been the placing of art objects upon the walls of publio schools and the formation of public school art leagues. In, one tesritory where distances are great and educa tional facilitles limited, every public school In the territory repelved two tine pictures from ,the club women of that territory. One large department club in a western ,bity has expended over $10,000 in schoolhouse decoration. The decoration of a school buildlAng as a memorial to some prom.inent women is a custom ovrignating with the CIVio club of Ialfl3q- *,-, whlich. raised sufficilent nne# $o '4 te ,a school ip euch bJ b er abt naIe it a model and th tP ; l or soucation .to ae lF L . :;ieorial to a 'woin wlu t4 o the fist 'stairr which would ramse bllt! went to the new-d yd . la In Montgomery, whell s ft 1 so muoh kdmltation that other eahoota in the state are Wdeaowiitg e iteoutre similar decoratilems. Mea , pf the clubs are noe hldi.ni liveting art exhbitions ind lalne the proceeds to purchase picture for the decoration of public schools. The value of the work women are doing for the artistic mprovemenat of the country isL belng generaº recog nised. In Minnesota, the art commit. tee of the tederatl on of Woemen's clubs has been made an associate with the state kIt commission Whis it was Instrumental in founding. In Kansas the club Ipmen have been asked to provide kn advisory Oemmlttee for beautifying the grounds of the state capitol. The ,Missouri club women have taken for their motto "Art in the Market Place" and have arranged in numerable exhibitions for the benefit of the people who ordinarily have little opportunity for such pleasures. In Misslssippi free traveling art ex htbitions under the auspices of the clubs are epthuilasatcally received. In Nebraska, three traveling galleries 6f original paintings and a box of pottery have been provided by the state federation to be loaned only to federated olubs, and this one induce ment has added a number of clubs to the membership roll. This state fed eration has also provided a number of portfolios of English, Flemish and Dutch art for the use of individual clubs interested In these subjects, to gether with the needed descrlptive books. The women of North Dakota have placed a magnificent statue of the Indian chief, Bakakawea, upon the capitol grounds at Bismarck, the first public monument ever erected by the women of that state, . There is a great effort being made by the club women of the country to encourage all-fgrms of native art work. In Alabama, a variety of baskets, which have been much ad mired, are woven from the long needles of the southern pine. In North Carolina, the mountaineers make several kinds of babtkets of unique design and they also weave rugs, bedspreads and other articles of home furnishing. Similar work is pro duced in Kentucky. The art depart ment of the general federation urges upon all club women the patriotic duty of encouraging these home Industries by using them in their own' house furnishings rather than many Im ported articles which are really of less artistic value. The city clubs are advised to develop interest in these wares by giving exhibitions of them In their own club rooms and In many nlstances the city club can send to the rural club a collection of pictures and other art objects in exchange for a collection of this handicraft work. One of the matters In which the art department of the geaeral federation Is Interested is the adoption of a na tional flower. This has .been talked of for many years and different flowers suggested, but at the last biennial meeting the mountain laurel was brought prominently forward as the one possessing most points of merit. Goldenrod has been suggested, but farmers hate it as they do the daisy, for the farmers who have aores of the "white weed" to fight have no desire to see it as the emblem of their nation. The columbine has been approved 'but It is regarded as too fragile. The laurel, which grows in Its finest form in the 18 original states but Is found in some form in every state In the Union, has none of these objections. In favored places it becomes a tree, but like lberty, it is hardy and will live under the most adverse clrcumstances. It is a flower readily translatable into all forms of art and lends Itself readily to de.o orative designs. Its curves are grace ful and of limitless variety. The flower is attractive and when the fruit is ripe It splits into a five-pointed star. During the past two years many clubs have been studying the laurel, and various other character isties qualifying It as the typical flower to represent the nation have been brpulght out. The art department of a Women's club in any town is likely to Co operate actively in every effort to Ibeautify the locality. One of the recommendations recently presented to the general federation was that the clubs should urlge their members to refuse to purchase of any merchant who uses billboards as advertising. While the recommended boycott way not formall5 adopted, a number of clIl. art department/ have taken 4t up and In at least one town In Ohio all of the billboards in the community have been taken down through the Influence of the art department of its Women's club.
