But another fact about the pieo ple of Missoulat is that in over whelming numbers the Ioen who have given to that town its dplace and good name are very firmly op posed t" Dr. Craigheuad'sa plins his first plan about Fort Missoula; his later consolidation proposal. The Post affirms that; we offer to prove it. We are not saying that this same is indisputably true of all Montana, because the data to back up such a statement may be lacking. The Post does bel'eve, however, that Montana-at-large is not for the consolidation bill which Wednesday night's meeting backed, and the Post also believes that the measure will not come out of the legislature alive. Of course, that's a guess, but, in the light of rapid idly-shaping public opinion, it looks like a good guess. Dr. Craighead and the advocates of his plan try to fix the public's attention on the fact that Mon tana sends a good many students to universities in other states. ('on solidation won't stop that-Dr. Craighead kIn:~ws. that it won,'t. Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Y' rk, Illinois, ('alifornia-these all have high-ranking universities; we all know what is going on in WVis consin, for Instance. But these states, one and all, continue tI, seond big contingents to this or that departnment at Yale or Cor nell or Vlirni'.lon or Columbia sr IHarvard. If Montana, in the evolution of its university, is wise it will "bhunch its hits" either on its school of mines or on its school of agriculture. So doing, it can give to one or the other of these schools foremost rank in the united States, and that call be ii ntie within a period of twe(nty-five years. That will, in turn, draw to Montana studlents fro(n the dis tant states, while those who want the classic`al or acadenmic, under graduate, work, or law or medl c'ine or theology or sonle Iranches of sf'cience may go from Montana to institutions where these fields are specialized. HIGGINS OF MISSOULA. (Higgins is sticking in the limelight over at Helena. As fast as he is pushed out of the illuminated ('ir'e!e, he enters again from another side. Hec continually reasserts his claim to pub lic notice. This week he has gainfed altention in two ways. lie made an attiemlt to forbid by law lthe exchange ,of newspaper advertising for railwaly transportation. The attempt failed, but it revealed Mr. Higgins' ignorance of the ondlitions. The transportatoll iwhich is exchanged by the railways for newspaper advertising is not "free pIasses." Every mile of travel which it represents is ipaid for. ''he exchange is just as legitimate as is the swap which a farmer makes when he brings In potatoes and takes from the grocery store a sack of sugar. Then, toof, Mr. Higgins went upon record as one of the two members of hie , house whVo were nltopposed to sul iltting the q;uestlion of wotlnmn suf frage to the people. In this nation, Mr. lliggins set himself up as a high er authority than the proletariat. He is wiser than1 the majority of the peo ple who vote. If Mr. Higgins is op pTosed to equal suffrage, that i, his right. But, as a ftirminded citizen, it is difficult to see how hlie can recon 'ile his objection to the refereindum. MISSOULA'S CHANCE.

If the democrats in congress are tall as considerate of the Wilson poll CONSOLIDATED DUPLICITY The other day, in the consolidation discussion before the chamber of commerce, a member of the university faculty denied The Missoulian's statement that the faculty is neg lectful of its duty as a result of its consolidation obsession. This morning, in another column, is printed a communi cation from a student of the university, in which the same positive denial is made. The student manfully asserts that there can be no neglect of duty on the part of the faculty because the students have too much to do. It was not difficult to convince the faculty member re ferred to, that he was mistaken and that other members had been doing things of which he knew nothing. We do not know whether it will be possible to convince the stu dent. We give him credit for honesty in his belief that The Missoulian is a double-dyed liar. But, like the faculty member, he doesn't know all that is going on. The student says he knows it is not a fact that any mem ber of the faculty has ever said that the university "is no good at all." We know that it is a fact and there are a good many others who know that it is a fact. There are the members of the chamber of commerce who attended last Saturday's meeting, who can testify that they heard this opinion very positively expressed. The members of the Missoula Woman's club have heard it, too, from the lips of a faculty member. There are students at the university who have heard it expressed in classrooms. Now, this student is a victim of the consolidated duplic ity which has characterized the campaign for consolidation. There have been many statements made by the advocates of consolidation which have been denied subsequently. The student thinks he is correct, but he is misinformed. There were men who went to Helena-not from Missoula -prepared to take a strong stand in favor of consolidation, but who discovered the consolidated duplicity which has been practiced so continuously through the course of this campaign, by some of the men who are advocates of con solidation. This discovery led to the withdrawal of some of the Helena delegates from support of the plan. The member of the university faculty referred to in the opening lines of this editorial, stated afterward that the ac tivities of faculty members not in accord with duty were not representative of faculty sentiment, but were the result of individual effort on the part of those who have been over-zealous in the matter. We do not know who inspires this unwarranted activity which is injuring the university, but we do know that the activity exists. The university is suffering in consequence. The consolidation movement is dead. But for two days there have been things said at the university by members of the faculty which call for the sternest reproof. The professors at the university have work to do; they would better stick to that work and help us to make a greater uni versity, right here. ties as thev are of the president eleet's physical conmfort, he will have a rosy administration.

This eontinual agitationit is very un fort unaite, as sotie of those urging lthe iatter gio up and down the state de haring that the present educational institutions do not toniunt to anything andl never will be any giod. all of 'hich is not true. In a new coimmonwealth it naturally tikes some years to geit suchlt schools roperly equipped and upon their feet nut It seemts to the Minir Montana tas done veryv well in this particular. It is noticed that a bill has been in trotlduced in the legislature providing for consolidation. which would give to a commission of outside residents the right of selecting the location where these schools are to he massed, after whloh the old buildings, which have cost a great deal of money, are to ho abandoned, and the peole of the state are to be asked to vote honds to the amollnt of $1,000,000 for buildings to be erected ulpon the site chosen by this eomlmission of outsiders. This looks like a preposterous prop osition upon its face, for if consollda tion should come about, certainly the people are competent to decide for themselves where institutions shall be lcated. The neaRsure seems to e( framied with the direct intention of not al lowing the voters to have a voice in the miatter Ibeyonld that of paying an immense hill of expense. It is notiled by the press dlspatches that at a meeting held in Heolena W\Vdnesday night former 'Lieutenant (l,\vernor iW. ILt. Allen of Anaconda an noncedt that a.s a representative of Hutite ihe (1ul say tihat the citizens of this comlmunity do not favor the retention of the School of Mines here.

I feel that I can sia, without fear of success ful clll ra ldirc tion, that the stateimenti that facullty members of t-he university have said that "the iunl v\erslty is liIn gi.o(l at all," is a malicl tius, deliberate niisstatement and is Intended, as all of the anti-consolida tion "arglument" appearing in the Mis soulian s'elems It be intended, merely ito distract aittention from the main issue. In fturther defense of the university faculty, I will state that the charge that they are neglecting their duty is entirely unfounded. Efforta by the students to get at the truth or falsity of this accusation have failed to dis close a single student who will sup port this bit of "mud slinging." On the contrary, not two weeks ago, in my presence, two students of the law school made the statement that they I were over-burdened with work and would have to leave their studies if their professors did not lessen the burdens .placed upon them. No fair minded person will deny that, in order to work the students a professor must necessarily work himself. In case there is a student in the university who is not finding enough work to do, my advice to him is to do the work which is placed before him. The question of location seems to be one of the main points of attack by the people of the cities directly affect ed and also by the Missoulian. I have no objection to your paper bringing up the question of depreciation in value of property in the losing cities for two reasons. In the first place according to the plan as advocated tbese cities would get an institution of as many students as they have at present-and this fact is not attem~pted to be denied by you. In the second place, the property owners in those cities have a right to know of and protect their mercenary interests. But there is a valid objection to any paper, without the slightest reference to the method of selecting a site as outlined in the "Craighead" 'plan, in opposition to the general plan, to shout "big in terests" or in other words to insinu ate that the Amalgamated company would choose the site. Following the nonpartisan method as suggested, it is obvious that no outside influence could place the new institution other than at the very best place for it. It is amusing to imagine an Amalga mated representative trying to in fluence or bribe President Jordan of Stanford. President Wheeler of Cal ifornia, et al. I can but repeat the suggestion of President Craighead in saying, here after let the discussion be on the merits and on a high plane. R. H. WIE1DMAN. Missoula, Montana, January 24, 1913. CONSOLIDATION GRAMMAR (Butte Post.) For the exploiting of consolidation the authorities in the university at Missoula are running a presp bureau, and its output is large. We do not know who is paying for this campaign of alleged education, but the workers on it are busy. Among other things they are sending ready-made editor Ials to the press of the state. The lat est output to reach the Post is well executed, mechanically, with the cap tion: "Consolidation. Editorial ser les, exclusive in your city. From the University of Montana." Really, this "editorial" material is, in quality, pretty crude stuff to be sent out under the name and auspices of the University of IMontana. It hoosts for consolidation in this style: "No one but persons financially inter ested are (?) opposing it." Is that by the way, "consolidated" grammar? And the editorial comment runs on this way: "There are no real argu ments to oppose it with. For it, there is among others this great one that only so will you get your money's worth. If you wish to get what you are paying for, support consolidation. Talk it to your friends. Urge it upon your legislators; see to it that the bill for it becomes law." By the way. what bill? The bill that was reported to have the university's 0. K. appears to have gone astray. However, we are quoting the univer sity's hand-me-down editorial stuff merely to call general attention to it. There are mighty few newspaper of fices in Montana which would deem it good enough either in matter or man ner to use. Were the controversy a warnm one, the statement that only "those financially interested are op posing consolidation" would be dis missed as a campaign lie and be let go at that. OUR GAUL Editor Missoulia.n-In times past I've accused you of various things, and have put various embarrassing ques lions to you and, I've often thought there must he a negro in the woodpile som\ewhere. No doubt I should still be laboring under the same delusion, had I not chanced to read the letter of "College Man" in your paper. Little did I dream of your baseness and dnlplicity. Little did I think that you Would practice suclh a crime of sub stitution upon a credulous world. I have often thought of the color of the gentleman you have had concealed in the woodplle. I have often wondered how he came to lie black, I have read the explanations of eminent scientists as to how his skin happened to be black; a.ye, I have almost wept in moments of pity, for, (as I've always supposedl) Negro. Now comes "(Col loge Man" and, with a ruthless hand, tears the glamour of poetry from around this supposed black man, and reveals him in all his hideousness and whiskers, a (:aul.

S.o you have tatught this Gaul the English language? How have you managed to keep this specimen of a. once proud enople from the prying eyes of the world? And you a newspaper man.

Haskin Great events make great men, and the recent upheaval in China created .eneral Li Yuan-hung. Fifteen months ago he was an obscure colonel in the Chinese army, recognized only In the Yangtze valley where he oper ated, practically unknown in the rest f China and an utter 'blank to the ;orld at large. Today his name is a household word among over 400,000,000 f people and he is given considerable fame in every land on the globe. The accidental explosion of a bomb in Iankow on October 9, 1911, set off the marvelous Chinese revolution, ,hich in turn made the obscure army fficer in rapid succession command _r-in-chief of the rebel army, dictator f the Yangtze' valley, head of the revolutionary government, the idol of Ihe Chinese people and finally vice ,resident of the Republic of CThina. Such phenomenal advancmerit smacks if luck. Add to this the fact that he had to be backed into his greatness, accepting the leadership of the revo lution as the only way to save his -wn neck, and it seems to be a clear case of his being a prime favorite of Chance. But, investigation goes to show that Li Yuan-hung is worthy of all the honors which a grateful people have heapedl upon him. Thirtyone of Li Yuan's 49 years have been spent in military life, and his father was a soldier. He was Colonel LI Tsaohslang, and his famous son was born in a little hamlet of the Yangtze valley, within a few hours' journey of the scenes of his military exploits. When he attained his 18th year he was admitted to the Tientsin Naval college. Six years there gave him a clear understanding of his hardy and straight-forward brothers of North China. This was an educa tion in itself, as the northerners and southerners are so separated by geo graphy and antagonistic customs that they have very little in common. There Li also formed a life-long friendship with the noted Admiral Sah, who, at a critical moment in tihe revolution, joined hands with his old college chum and put his 13 shlps, practically the entire imperial navy, under the rebel flag. -Li Yuan-hung had very little naval experience after he was graduated from the Tientsin Naval college, for the simple reason that China had no navy 'to speak of. Naturally, he be came an officer in the army, and saw some service in the war with Japan. Soon after that unhappy episode he got on the staff of General Chang "hi-tung, a powerful viceroy who ruled over Nanking, which was the capital of the empire in the days of the Ming dynasty. There he earned his captaincy by fortifying Nanking with modern guns. Viceroy Chang Chlh-tung, a Chi nese gentleman of the old school, was one of the greatest men, above and apart from his deeds, that China has ever !produced. He is dead, but his example and his teachings live today In the career of Li Yuan-hung. When the great Chang was promoted to be viceroy of Honan and Hupeh he de cided to have a strong, modern army. Taking young Li with him from Nanking, he commissioned him to whip the raw soldiery into shape. Li did it. With the aid of a German instructor the did in Central China what Yuan Shih K'ai was doing in North China. It was hard, thank less work, except for the encourage ment of his mentor, but he stuck to it for three years. ,A foreign service assignment was Li's reward for the faithful perform ance of Ihis Hupeh work. lie was sent to Japan for a two-year course in de fenses and field tactics. Returning to China he was ordered to Wuchang and advanced to the grade of major. Here his experience was further en larged, as he was given an active cavalry command. He was also rank iag officer of what was known as the infantry fourth advanced guard. An other government assignment was that of chief of the joint army and navy maneuvers at Kiangyin. In 1905 he was made lieutenant colonel in com mand of the second division, a un'. usually directed by a general. By this time Li had shown himstl; to be a most excellent tactical bfflcer, and one of the few in whomn the men had absolute confidence. The new Hupeh Model army was organized the same year by permission of the Peking authorities and Li was given one of the first colonelcies. He was really the moving spirit of the new army and was made commander of the 12th mixed brigade, chief of the naval forces in the Yangtze valley, superin tendent of the military academy, of ficer in change of four departments of hte Hanyarag arsenal, and superin endent of the army college. He was provisional commander of the Changte maneuvers. Last year he led his mixed brigade in the autumn man uvers at Talhu. This was just a few ,-eeks before the outbreak of the rev lution, and he was then on the of iclal list for promotion to the rank f general. Li Yuan-hung is a very good look ng Chinese, with a well developed enad, bright, snappy eyes and a very ~rank and friendly manner. He 'a hort, stu.rdy, broa d-shouldered an(ld nelined to be corplulent.

Great good nature is one of his unfailing. traits. Optimism abounds in him. But there is no suggestion of the easy going man who can be handled. Everything about him portrays the leader of men, the man of action, the keen thinker, the skilled campaigner. A strict adherence to military du ties kept him free from that civil officialism which has spoiled so many good Chinese, even though its tradi tional "squeeze" enriched them. Gen eral VLi talks English very well, and is immensely popular with foreigners. He had several foreign instructors under him during the revolution. One was Colonel Arthur G. Sharpley, of Manila, formerly a lieutenant in the United States army. General Li is a firm friend of the missionaries, and intends to send his two boys and three girls to college in the United States. When the revolt was prematurely touched off all of Li Yuan-hung's men and most of his officers went over to the new cause for which they had been working secretly for months. As an advocate of modern methods and an ardent friend of the people Li sympathized with the movement, but felt that the time was not ripe for such a gigantic undertaking. Cer tainly, he had no thought of leading the rebellion. The leader of insur gency in that section was Liu King, a young scholar in his twenties, but lately returned from Japan, where he became a convert of Dr. Sun Yat Sen. Liu King picked Li Yuan-hung to lead the "army of the people," and the blood curdling way in which he made the reluctant Li see the light pro vided one of the many thrilling inci dents of the remarkable revolution which followed. Liu King and six men armed with swords met Li Yuan-hung in a small room. The army colonel refused point blank to command the rebel forces. Liu King raised his hand and the soldiers stepped forward. .Six glisten ing swords pressed against his bare neck. Liu King again offered the dangerous honor. For the second time Li refused. The honor was too great for such a humble man, he mumbled. Someone else should have it, etc. The short, slim swords then nipped the flesh. For the last time he was urged to take up the task, another refusal meaning instant decapitation. Li saved his ihead. He did more than that. He saved a great cause and led a worthy people out of the wilderness. The civilized world soon realized that a new great man had appeared. It was seen that General Li Yuan hung was not only a successful soldier but a statesman, a humanitarian. His course throughout was marked by moderation, by a desire for peace, by a wish that all his people might be free, united and happy. Witness .his celebrated edict, his first, issued when he took command of the rebellion, a document which proclaimed to . the world that New China had come to stay: "I am to dispel tlhe Manchu govern ment a(nd to revive the rights of the ra.n people. Let all keep orderly and not disorderly military discipline. The rewards of merit and the punishment of crime are as follows: Those who conceal, any government officials are to be beheaded. Those who inflict in juries on foreigners are to be be headed. Those wlho deal unfairly with the merchants are to be beheaded. Those who interrupt commerce are to be beheaded. Those who give way to slaughter, burning, adultery are to be beheaded. Those who attempt to close the markets are to be beheaded. Those who supply the troops with foodstuffs will be rewarded. Those who supply ammunition are to ,be highly reward ed. Those who can afford protection to the foreign concessions are to be very highly rewarded. Those who guard the churches are to be highly rewarded. Those who can lead the people to submission are to be highly rewarded. Those who can encourage the country ,people to join will be re warded. Those who give information as to the movements of the enemy are to be rewarded. Those who maintain the prosperity of commerce are to be rewarded. The Eighth Moon of the 4609th year of the Huang Dynasty." This was Li Yuan-hung's Golden code, and he followed it as closely as possible. Success did not breed in him greed for more power. When Sun Yat Sen arrived he divided his au thority and helped make the doctor president of the provisional govern ment. In order to.have peace he gave way to Yuan Shillh K'ai. He accepted the vice presidency of the new re public and has since devote: him'seLf to the restoration of law and order in the Yangtze. Whe:1 Yuan Shih K'ai steps out Li Yung-husg will step up.
