A sense of duty pursues us ever. It is omnipresent, like the Deity. If we take to ourselves the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, duty performed or duty violated is still with us, for our happiness or our misery. If we say the darkness shall cover us, in the darkness as in the light our obligations are yet with uls.-Daniel Webster. FIVE HUNDRED.

There have been I;lt'lr;tions in 1bills, made in engross tno t; there have been bills L.st in trau minimon from one end of the cap Ptil to the other. And, always, the change in wording has been to defeat trip a t-se of the people; always, too, t'-e lst bill has been one in which the people were vitally interested. The legislative agents of Montana Big Business are adepts; they are clever 'and they are unscrupulous. Knowing this, the public has a right to be suspicious. FARM LOANS. "The law now in force relative to thle investment of the permanent school and university funds in farm mort gages has been found to b. .of little use. A law of broader scope will ac complish beneficial results in this particular." This paragraph in Governor Stew aLt's tiessage should receive the care tul atiention of the members of the legisltature. It should he brought to the't particular notice by every Inters ested citizen. The suggestion contains the possibility of a mecans for great development in the agricultural dis tricts of the state. The plan of farm loans has been de veloped to a helpful factor in Gier tIany, Switzerland and Russia, ahere it has been systematized after years of exlrilment. . The proposition haa been nle of tile contentions of the pro gressive party. It will result, if car ried into effect in Montana, in an en largement of the agricultural opera ti nas in the state; it will make it pos sible in mn;say Instances for the small farmer to obtain money for the con struction of an irrigation system of his cwn. I l proved farm land is good :ecurll - ity. It is upon this security that the sate will loan its permanent funds if the suggestion is enacted into a law. 'rThe resent statute is incomplete in its pr:'ovisionas and im]practicalle in its' taplith utilln. Those who have giv n th' aubjecet Inmi thought are of the opin ion that the plan is one of the most imporntant of all the matters which will c'ane before the Thirteenth assenllbly.

THEY ARE.ON RECORD The democrats of the house of representatives in the Thirteenth legislative assembly of Montana ,)ave placed themselves on record as opposed to the doctriiae and prac tice of their party in the national house of representatives and as against the same policy as practiced by the demo crats in the Montana state senate.: . These democrats include some men wh~ diave been, for several yers, verynoisy Ij their denunciation;of the posi tion assumed by, Joe Cannon as speaker of the national house of repre'sentatives-this position beirin' the very issue which turned a republican majority into- democratic control and which deposed the speaker whom the democrats de nounced as a "czar" for carrying out the very proposition which the MOntana democrats have approved and adopted This plan, proposition or policy-whatever you wish to call it-consists in placing the appointment of the house committees in the hands of the speaker, giving him abso lute control of the progress of legislation. This procedure was opposed by the democrats in the national house; they were joined by progressives from the other side, who saw in the system the defeat of popular government. The history of the fight against Cannon is so recent that it is familiar. The democrats all over the country de nounced, deplored and damned; then and since then there was no combination of words in the English language suf ficiently strong to express properly the democratic con demnation of the parliamentary rule which placed the nam ing of committees in the hands of the speaker. As we have said, some of the democrats in, Helena have been as loud as anybody intheir denunciation of this plan hqd of the man Cannon, who made it so effective in defeat ing popular government. Yet these men went on record yesterday as indorsing this very plan. They made it a part of their rules for the session. They defeated a proposition to place the selection of ,committees in the power of the house .itself. Yesterday's vote upon this proposition at Helena show, that the progressives in the house stood practically alone in opposition to the undemocratic principle of having the speaker name the committees. The speaker at Helena, we assume, will name the house committees. Yesterday's vote indicates that the demo crats have overcome their tendency toward popular rule. They have placed the power of controlling legislation in the hands of a sinrgle man. The rollcall yesterday should be preserved for reference. It shows just where the members of the house stand. It shows who of them have been sincere in their declarations in favor of popular government.,i It shows, top, where the blame must rest for the failure of the Thirteenth assembly to carryout pledges for reform legislation.' And, further, the vote of yesterday leads naturally to the query, "What has become of the 'platform' democrats?" Were they the creatures of a day only or of a. Day only? The Congressional Directory By. Frederic J.

Then, again, there are others who carne to congress, drcopped iout t again, and ultimiately re-entered lpublic life in other capacities.

However, in 1859, Charles Lanman undertook to gather the biog raphies of all those who had served in the senate or house from the hegin ning of the government-including the continental congresses. Considering the. ground he had to cover, the lack of personal data in those days and the -ew sources to which he cotild resort, Lanman's work Was, a .notable effort. ,, Sincc:that :time the big ,permanent diredtories that have comeout about once a decade have done little more than: add the biographioal sketches of the mnen who had come -to Congress slnce the previous edition 'was pub lished. And usually tne later com pilers contented themselvyp with the information they found in the auto biographical sketches contained .in the sessional congressional directorles. There was, of course, a great deal Ia these sketches that was irrelevant and useless. One member cited that he was 'married and lived with his wife. Another declared "'iinself the leader of 'the legal profession in his state. Somb proclaimed the unanimity of their political preferment, others thbir prhwiess as orators, telling of all the honors they had won from childhood. Some told the amount of their bene faction and the size of their fortunes. In the forthcoming permanent biog raphy the sketches will be shorn of these evidences of the personal vanity of men who ha.e been in congress. We will not read' in it of the man who prolnoulnced himself the universally re garded leader of the bar and the most eloquent advocate of his state; neither will we find that another gentleman was, as he styled himself, "the savior of Coney island." Even the inimitable Chauncey De pew no longer will be permitted to tell posterity how many times he has been the "lprincipal speaker of the oe easiion," or to list the notables who have sat under the sound of his voice. The now directory will content itself Witt giving salient facts., The vain member of congress hereafter will have to depend on the annual direc tuiies to proclaim his greatness to a waiting world.

PRODUCTION OF GOLD AND SILVER LARGEST PRODUCTION OF WHITE METAL AND SrMALLEST OF YELLOW RECORD OF '12. The gold-mining industry of the United States was gnerally normal in 1912, according to IH D.' MoCaskey of the United States geological survey, but early figures Indicate the smallest }roductibn since 1907k when' the'obit tut was $90,435,700. In 1908 the output increased to $94,560,000, in 1909 to $99, 673,400, *n 1910 it dropped to $96,269, 100, in 1911 it increaised slightly to $96,890,000, but in 1912 it decreased to $91,685,169, according to prelimbiary estimates of the bureau of the mint and the geological su vey. The decrease is to pe ascribed main ly to Nevada, where there was a fall ing off of about $4,5091,000, chiefly from Goldfield and to a snmaller degree from National and Seven Troughs. The great UGodfield mines produced more ore than in 1911, but the average grade treated was considerably lower; the mill at National was burned in Sep tember, and production was delayed at Seven Troughs by a cloudburst in July. On the other hand, the Manhat tan, Round Mountaix and Fairview districts somewhat increased their yields. A decrease of $300,000 to $400, 000 is also indicated for Colorado, where, although there was an in creased production frnn Cripple Creek of about $500,000, owing partly to suc odessful drainage by tthe Roosevelt tun pel, and an -increaso in gold output also from GKilplin county, there was an estimated decrease in production of about $1,000,000 fro¶ll the San Juan region, including the counties of Dolo res, La Plata, Ouray, San Juan and San Miguel. The b*lc of the decrease, however, was from the Camp Bird lnine, in Ouray county, as the output of San Juan and Dolores counties in creased. In Utah tand Washington decreases of gold output of $100,000 to $200,000 are indicated. In Montana there was probably a smaller decrease. The production of gold was normal in Alaska, Arizona, Idaho and New Mexico, and there wao a somewhat in creased output in California and Ore gon. The year 1912 was most pros poerous in South Dakota, where the out put increased about i4Q0,000, and was the largest In the history of the state. The great Homestaket mine, as usual, made the bulk of the output. The hydro-electric plant of the company owning these mines, Which have been under construction for several years, was completed and in operation in 1912. California retains first place in gold output, regained frcom Colorado In 1911. Gold dredging continued generally active in 191", especiallly in California and Alaska, where i Frtased dredging "BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER" cadbm ds i c ThiaWooDR. orPIthre od pn anaeic psDlOmay have beon caused W lack ogood fresh air breathed into or balY Cpooaote lion or dyapepsia.

Preliminary estimates of the United States geological survey and the bu reau, of the mint indicate a domestic silver production in 1912 of 62,369,974 fine ounces, valued at $37,982,414, Ihe greatest output (though not the great est value) since 1892, when the, pro duction was estimated at 63d500,000 ounces. In,1893 it was given as 60,'' 000,000 ounces, and not ,s~ipe then. p. til 1911, kvhen the, production, was 0, 399,400 ounces, has the figure been above 60,000,000. Final figures may show an. even greater output for 1912, as early estimates from the mines made by the western offices of the geological survey indicate a total sil ier prodpction of approximately, 6f, 000,000 ounces, or the largest output in the history. of the country. This increase in production may be attributed chiefly to the notable in crease in the output of copper ores, es pecially those of Butte, Mont., which contain considetab1lesilver, and qf ar gentiferous lead ores, notably of the Tintlc and Park City districts, Utah; the Pioche district, Nevada, ,gan the San Juan region ahd the Leadville anq Aspen districts, Colorado. There was apparently a small decrease In silver production from the great Coeur d'Alene lead mines of Idaho, whose ores have a lower average silver.con tent than formerly. * High prices generally for silver, cop per and lead in 1912 materially added to the profits of production. The aver age New York price for silver in Jan uar.y, 1912, was 56.3 cents a fine ounce; by May it had risen with various fluctuations to 60.9 cents, by October to 63.5 cents, and the December aver age price was about 63.6 cents. The average price for the year may be taken at 60.9 cents a fine ounce, against 53 cents in 1911 and 1908, 54 cents in 1910 and 52 cents in 1909. It was the highest, therefore, since 1907, when the average price was 66 cents. The year 1912 was one of gen eral business prosperity, and buying was liberal in all. metals. For ship ment to the far east, especially to In dia, large purchases of silver were recorded. AT VICTOR Victor, Jan. 8.-(Special.)-W. T. Edwards transacted business in Vic tor and vicinity Monday.
