MORE EXPERT TESTIMONY. 1Repeatedly since the progressive na tional convention, we have called at tention to the. fact that the importance of that gathering is test demonstrat ed by the testimony of Its enemies. We have cited the opinions of the newspaper correspondents who rep resented hostile publications at the Chicago convention, lest we be held as preJudic'ed and too enthusiastic by reason of our friendliness to the move ment. In the Tory. newspapers of New York there wez; descrlptions of the convention which left no room for doubt as to its great significaance or at to the strength of the movement which it represented. Another Im portant hit of testimony is the story of the c(onvention which was written by Richard tlarding Davis, trained newspaper man, war correspondent and author, one of the best known of American writers. First, as is needed for an understanding of the subject, let this world traveler tell something of the spirit of the convention. It is reflected in this paragraph from Mr. Davis' convention story in Collier's: The most surprising part of the demonstration was the. singing). For the reason that everybody sang from his or her heart. I have heard Ca ruso murder a most beautiful and ten der melody, because to tile Italian, the simple English ballad held no mean ing; he felt only the $1,000 check In his hand. And the most impressive music I ever listened to was the worst rendered. It was "Nearer My God, to Thee," played after a hattle,, over the open grave of metn who had just been killed, by a bugler who could not fashion the notes because his sobs choked him. The singing of 15,000 voices at the convention of "The Bat tie Ilymn of the tRepubllc" and "On ward, ('hristian Holdiers," ,might have been better sung by a church choir. But it curried a harmony that could .not have been imparted by any music muster. It reminded me of tile psalm singing of the Boers before the battle of Sand river. Then Mr. Davis explains why the Tory newspaperse tprinted genuine news reports of the, convention. He was among the correspolldelts, and he knows: 'lnlme-hardened correspondents of tuwspapurs bitterly opposed to pro gressi'uleir, who lad hbeen sent to the convention to Hcoff, remained to pray. As many us , dozenl of them asked: "What can one say about this? If we tell the truth, people, will say we are press agents. This thing has a re ligious undertow. It isn't a convention at all, it's a gospel meetitl." One writer for a N'w York paper, who had received instructions to "guy" the conlvention, telegraphed his chief: "There is nothing to guy. And if I have to guy It, I resign." 'Another correspondent of another anUit.oosevelt paper was found, after "the colonel" had delivered his confes sion, in a state of inconsequent intox ication. His friends reproached hint that at such a time he should not de sert his work. "I haven't got any work," he ex claimed. "I had to tell tne truth about it and the story I wired them tonight is going to lose me my job." And there Is the story of why the Tory newspapers didn't carry out their plans to jibe and scoff and mis represent atid belittle the progreAtive convention. There was no change of heart in the editoral rooms at home, ' eht ! wps n , l men at Chloa Ioet who came under the wonderutt. spell of that meeting. These time. hardened oynlcs, professional satirists, gave way under the spell of that splrit. That, after all, is the most im poitant phase of Mr. Davis' testimony. It has much more slgniflouace than why a set of editors given to htabltual mlsrepresentation had an apparent and temporary lapse to truth. DON'T PORGET. Don't forget that the chamber of commerce wants fine specimens of grain and all other farm products for the western-Montana display at the state fair and at the eastern land shows. When you have anything good on your own place or when you see something good on some other man'i place, get it or tell the chamber of Commerce about it. A large part of the Missoula county grain collection was destroyed In the Ronan fire. It had been stored there while the ex hibit of the reservation region was being assembled. This makes it nec essary to got out and hustle. Each man and woman in Missoula county has part in this affair. This part should be actively assumed. UNFIT JUDGES. The latest judge to retire under se rious charges Is Judge William R. Bennett of the circuit court of West Virginia, Unlike Judge Hanford, in Seattle, this Judge does not give up all hope of further service on the bench, for Judge Bennett is a candi date for re-election and he professes to believe that the people will stand by him, even In the face of possible impeachment. But prdbably he is down and out, for practical purposes, as a public official. It appears that judges accused of gross unfitness, in character or rec ord, for the places they hold, can be dislodged more often than the public has I)een led to suppose. They are likely to resign rather than face im peachment proceedings. They do not care to take the chances of a trial be. fore a tribunal of competent author Ity. What has been needed, in many states and cities, for a generation, has been greater readiness, on the part of lawyers and laymen alike, to bring specifice charges against judges un worthy of confilence and honor. There has been extreme timidity or lack of public spirit, or both, in allowing judges grossly unfit for the positions they hold, to remain undisturbed in office. Courage and willingness to take trouble for the public good would have ousted many a judge from a seat on the bench which he was unworthy to hold and incompetent to fill. A Brooklyn woman Inadvertently exchanged a suitcase containing valu able jewelry for another which was filled with broiled chicken alnd is in trouble. The person who lost the chicken Is making the fuss. Charles W. Morse, released from the penitentiary ,because he was dying, is planning to put a great fleet of mer chant ships on the Atlantic. What would he do if he were only in good health? An English phystelan asserts that in thre, hundred years a majority of the people on earth will be insane. We have noted a marked tendency in that direction for several months. If it required 365,000 to make Penn. sylvania republican through Senator Penrose, how much did It take to make. Texas go democratic through senator Bailey? There are thirty murders a day In the United States. One who listens to the rendition of popular songs on the vaudeville stage wonders there are not more. We are now faced by the annual prediction that there will be a short age of coal. It is not quite time for tthe forecast regarding the short crop of turkeys. The Methodist ministers went away smiling and said they would like to come again. Surely Missoula will be glad to have tiietll come as often as they cln. A New York ldispatch says J. Pier pont Morgan is becolming feeble, This Is probably a campaign lie. The mar ket has been all his way lately. Bunt Colonel Roosevelt will have no 'ifficulty in getting his case before the public, even if the senate comt witteea denies him the right. The world pays a tribute of respect to GI.neral Booth suchl as was never given a moan who wore shoulder straps in a worldly army. A New York woman says she cares more for her horses than her hus band. Perhaps the husband is not al together to blame. Andrew Carnegie says Amerlcan millionaires are not taxed enough. But he waited till be got to Europe be. ,tore he sald it. If there Is anything Missoula can do for Ronan, she desires to know what it ls, She is ready and willing to do it, The new Drummond Chamber of COommaerce Is welcomed to the ranks of western. 9optanR l"oostore, TURN 01jALL THE LIGHT Surely it can be said of Theodore Roosevelt that "we love him, for the enemies he has made." Boss Pntrose, dis oredited by his own state, despised by the country and besmirched with all the filth of rotten ma be politics, tonses Colonel Roosevelt of accepting a funds from the Standard Offcompany. He calls u Archbold of the Standard Ofl company to substantiate statoment. Archbold says he could prove it if Cornelius - its were alive. Then Archbold sneaks off to Europe, his parting words being: "Tell the boys to-take good care of the country." What a farce it all Is! A discredited boss, tf represen tative of an illegal trust, and a dead man-r-a on fhese rests the case against Theodore Roosevelt, The lase reacts upon the man who started it. Penrose finds he has stirred up a hornets' nest., He discovers that he has not muddled the water sufficiently to conceal his own infam y or his vile purpose. The whole tissue of falsehood is built upon the name of a dead man. Were Cornelius Bliss' alive, he would not be called as a witness. In that case there would be some other dead man named as the lacking witness. And now, after having accused Mr. Roosevelt, he As denied by these people the opportunity to tell the truth of this affair. The Penrose gang does not want the whole truth told. The light should be turned on fully. Here is the Chicago Tribune's summing up of the case: Boles Penrose, standing at the switchboard, has tf.ned on more light than he Intended. . The light should be kept on. The switch should be thrown wide open. The senate is adjourning. Its committee should rentan at its Im portant work. There is no more pressing service Ini the country today than this may be made. The committee should be Instructed to un cover the whole machinery of Standard Oil politics. It should be fully empowered. It should have counsel skilled in examinatiol. It should have all necessary anssistance and a sufficient appropriation to make its work effective. Having been led to the threshold of the truth, the American people will demand that the senate shall go on and at once to a thorough clarification. No matter how tainted the source, how colored and trimmed and garbled the report, let us have all we can get without check. Already we have the testimony of great interest before congressional committees. We have had the Penrose-Archbold correspondence, and now we have Senator Penrose's personal authoritative statement of the contribution of Standard Oil to the republican national campaign fund In 1904 and to Senator Penrose's Pennsylvania fund. There is Witness John D. Archbold. More even than Senator Pen rose. Mr. Archold can tell us. Already he has testified. But that was but a glimpse he has given us. He has testified that In 1904 Standard O11 contributed $100,000 to the republican national fund., and $2r,n00 Mr. Archbold paid to Senator penrose. Hearst's Magazine has published a letter which seems to have accompanied this latter pay ment. Its phraseology is too sinister In its Implication for either Mr. Archbold or Senator Penrose to be content with the very halting com ment they have made upon it. Mr. Archbold does not think it is gen uine. Senator Penrose hints that It is a forgery. The fact should be established. And this Is not the only letter Mr. Archbold, or purporting to be Mr. Archbold's, which Is crying to heaven for explanation. XWllte are let ters to men potent In the affairs of politics, letters involving other men, the roraker letters, the Sibley letters, the Grosvenol' letters, the Quay letters, letters treating of the qualities of that pillar of dem ocracy, Ilalley of Texas, and the men high In the business world and men active and influential if not high in the world of practCical politles. They give a picture of the ramifications of Standard 011 throughout our natonal affairs during a conslderable period, and they have chal lenged the alarmed attention of an aroused people. They also bring into unenviable publicity many men, some now passed away, some living and Influential still. It is pre(osterous that having testified to but on Incident of the great process of which he was a part, Mr. Archbold should not step ldown from the witness stand. It is said he has a trip to Europe planned. But what Is such a consideration when a nation of 90,000,000 is awaiting his words? Other citizens have foregone more Important matters than a vacation to serve the state. WHI Mr. Archbold turn tail now? W'll the senate permit him to leave? We are in the midst of a great campaign. Senator Penrose and other public man have Ibrought forward most opportunely this iurning issue of the relations of organized money to government and party. The subject is barely broached and Mr. Archbold is the richest source of information now existing. How can the senate, If It would be fair to all concerned, or waiving all personal claims, if it desires to serve the. welfare of the republic, how can the senate permit an interruption until the cam paign is almost over? * When Mr. Archhold re'turns and once more the senate has access to his capacious mmnl.nory, to his files which he will open, to the sources of further enlightenment to which his information will lead, it will be to, late to make full disclosure and too late to debate or to weigh the full significance of evidence. Surely this wrong will not be done. The investigation should pro e.ed, and It cannot prolperly proceed without Mr. Archbold. SFriends in Conference By Frederio J. Haskin .rom August 28 until September 4 the beautiful grounds of the Chau tauqua association at CThautaqua lake, New York, will be occupied by thou sands of members of the Soclety of Friends, called thither for attendance upon their annual conference. Their quaint Quaker costumes and their softly spoken "Thee" will harmonize well with the surroundings of their famous resort and 'be an added attrac tion to the resident cottagers present and will also give them a better uI derstanding of the breadth and scope of the ,wors undertaken by this quiet denomination of people to whom the nation is indebted for muoh of its progress in. philanthropy and educa tion. The conference program will include many subjoets of general interest as well as those p,'rtainlng to the growth of the Society of 'riehds. One of the leading addresses will he made by John William 'raham, principal of Da'ton hall, Manchester university, England, who will present some of the latest findings regarding moral and rollgious education. A number of prominent educators from leading American in stitutions will discuss the suhject un der different matters and the latest progress in prison reform and Juvenile court .methods will be presented by experts. Industilal conditions, the edu cational value of recreation and the promotion of peace will receive con sideration and several other branches of civic work will he presented. The Friends as a body have long been firm believers in woman suffrage and a conspicuous feature of the, New York suttrage parade held last May was the Quaker garbed marchers led by two men who carried gray and white banners, Eqiual suffrage therefore will be brought prominently forward at this conference and the subject will be presented by Miss Leonora O'Reli lay of New York. Aside from these topics of general interest there will be consideration given to matters pertaining to their faith, The discussion of the modern mission of Quakerism, the Young Friend's movement and the feaalibility of certain Innovations in their form of service will give the Friends from all parts of thI goluttry iteIss 9 carry home to their different meeting housee. It is doubtful if there is any re ligious denomination in the world of the same numbers that is able to ex ert quite so strong an influence for good along so many practical lines as do the Friends or Quakers. There are proliab'y less than 200,000 pro feased followers of this faith through out of the world and yet there is not a movement for progress along any philanthropic, educational or moral line in which they have not a con spicuous if not a leading place. It ,was the Quaker Influence which first started, the movement for the abolition of slavery. They are va'lant advo cates of the temperance and have good grounds for claiming to be the first active peace organization In the world. There are several branches of Friends or Quakers ecattered through out the United States although only two are recogniezod as important and the general conference includes them all. The Quakers are nothing it not progressive and the modern feeling of religious tolerance has affected both the Hicksite and Orthodox Friends so that there is no longer the bitter nees of feeling between them that there used to exist despite the out ward peace. 'iNow," said an eminent Orthodox Friend recently, "I say to my Hicksite Friend, 'Thee may not believe in the atonement, but it the' ever gets to heaven thee'il find that it was the atonement that got thee there and I amncontent to leave It at that.'" The original Society of Friends was founded between 1648 and 1601 by George Fox and their oonfession of faith does not differ materially from the Apostles' Creek. The Declaration of IChristian Doctrine put forth by the society in 1698 had for its diatingtlbh inl doctrine the "Ldght of Christ in Man." In 18827, Friend neaned lias Hicks promulgated opinions denying the accepted Interpretation of the dl vinity of Christ, the atonement and, several other matters included in the "Chlwristtan Doctrine." This led to a dlivplon in the soley , one party be-, ing known as Hiokelse and the other as Orthodox Friends. The two pir ties Ore 497 'lnitinj thel)r, tfort. .In ·,. , ,) . . .... . . .

The IFnglish Friends are all considered Orthodox although there are different degrees of faith in their different meetings. In numbers the Friends do not seem to be Increasing although in wealth and the number of their institutions there is a steady gain. One reason is that they never make any attempt at proselyting and do not hesitate to give their aid to any other Christian church. They are like the Unitarians in this sort of libetality. They give liberally to foreign missions and have established many of their own, es pecially among the American Indians with whom they have held kindly re lations since the time of William Penn, but they also give liberally to help the missions established in for elgn nations by other denominations. There are 20,000 members of the so clety of Friends in E0ngland and last year they contributed £20,000 sterling to the support of roelgn missions, a larger sum than is on record for any other denomination of the same num bers. They are especially interested in China and there are a number of Chinese Quakers enrolled in their membership. During the past 20 years there has sprung up the Young Friends' move ment which is doing much to modern Ise the characteristics of the Friends. The Young Friends' association have erected modern buildings in which are carried on mmny branches of work which are of/vaJlue in moral progrers although not sufficiently religious to be carried on in the regular meeting houses. There are educational classes and lecture courses, athletics and so. ela gatherings similar In, scope to tiMose of the Y. M. C. A., activitles which bring the young friends in line with work of other religious denom inations. The Young Friends will have charge of the devotional exercise of several of the ,meetings of the general conference and thus prove that their spirituality has not suffered by their having conformed to some of the "worldly customs," which their fath ers 'ould have tabooed, The philanthropies of the Friends are almost limitless as may be realised by anyone overlooking the charitable work in Phl'adelphia, the real ,held quarters of Quakerlsm. From the foundation of the city, the Friends have been mindful of the poor and the number of soup'houses, free diet kitchens, homes and asylums of all kinds have been greatf r that those of any other city in thu world in proper. tion to its population, Recently the younger Friends have discovered that much of this charity ih harmfu! be. caqse of its pauperising tendencies and it sl now being administered with increasing disclrimnation although the liberality of the contributors is un abated, The Friends as a claes are liberally educated and they are inter esting heomaelves extensively lI so oiologlici studies tending to secure the. greatest amount of good from every sort of charitable effort. The mem bers of the .ooiety of Friends them solves seldom if every reach penury. Those in need are succored 3tk others of the faith, but usually the hil is seeded only temporarily for the QUlt er 1t thrtfty and provident in all things. Strange to say, while the ?rlenA. seem to have been langulIhlan in the eus ' 41 n 4 I4 t q ers tlesf taeY. are increasing In the west both in membership and strength. This is partly due to the evangelicad move ment among them which has been do. cried by many of the old Friends who claim that the Priends of the west are no longer "Friendly," since many of them have meeting houses with stained glams windows and "hlrelitgl" ministers. In some ctses even. revival meetings and music are permitted. The English meetings are about halt way between the old-fashioned silent af fairs where the people sit in medita tion qniees one of the number feels moved by the Holy Spirit to speak and the meetings In some of the west ern meeting houses do not differ ma terially from those held in an evan gelical church. "The c'othing of the Quakers used to be distinctive, but this is changing in modern times. Rven in the old est meeting houses in Philadelphia each year sees less of the old Quaker bonnets, the quaint white kerchiefs and plain gray dresses of the women and the broad brimmed hats and col larless cutaway coats of the men, while "selected styles in millinery" and "spring openings in dress goode" are now as prominent a feature of the advertising columns of the ".riends' Intelligencer" as of any other publication designed for family reading. With the vanishing of this outward garb has gone, too, teuch of the "plain" language. Most of the younger Friends nbw dispenea with the 'thee" when converslnx with those of other denominations. in fact, there isnothing about the majority of the modern PJrlends to distinguIsh them from other people but this does not indicate that they have not ln thier hearts a firm .belief in their spiritual light, but rather that they are learning to live In the world and yet to be not of it. . From the earliest history, the Priends have given much attention to education and their sohools\and col. leges take high rank. They have col leges for men at Hiavertord, -Penn.; Wl'mington Ohio; Rltwihtam,; id.; Oskalboosa, ltow; Newberg, M e., and in Ontari '. _ yfrt aWr coll~ag. is a Quaker instltution taking front: rnk among the women's colleges of the world and 8wathmore college is co educational.
