There is no feature of the current news, we think,
which will attract more attention than the interview with
Governor Stewart which is printed in another column of
The Missoulian this morning. In this interview, which is
official and which bears the "o. k." of the governor, we
have the executive view of the accomplishment of the
Thirteenth assembly.
All in all, Governor Stewart's estimate of the work of the
legislature is that it is good. He finds much to commend
in the statutes which have been added to our law books.
Whatever sins there were, the governor finds were sins of
omission. These, he points out, may be atoned for by the
Fourteenth assembly. Governor Stewart sets up the point
that the democratic platform of last fall is yet in effect and
that it was intended to cover four years of legislation in
stead of the two-year period which most of us had given it.
The governor's argument in defense of the Thirteenth
assembly, then, amounts to this-that, had the Thirteenth
done all that was promised in the Great Falls platform,
there would have been nothing left for the Fourteenth to
do. This would have been unfair; the Thirteenth had no
right to gobble all the glory; it was to be expected that
some of it would be left for its successor. Else how could
we get anybody to sit in the Fourteenth?
Aside from its acts of omission, Governor Stewart finds
that the Thirteenth did a fine lot of business. He has con
fidence, we judge, that the "blue-sky law" will prove to be
a genuine benefit. There is a difference of opinion on this
score, but the governor is entitled to his opinion and it is
certain that some others will hold to a different view. And
the real test will come in the operation of the law. If it is
found that this law works well in the control of the limited
class of corporatons to which it is applicable, it may be that
the Fourteenth assembly will find something to do in the
enlargement of the scope of the act, in order that it may be
But the governor sits close to the law-production estab
lishment; he is in good position to judge of the merit of
these acts of the Thirteenth; he knows, better than any of
the rest of us, the motives which prompted these enact
ments and the purposes which inspired the shaping of them.
It is a great gift to be able to see the bright side of
things. Montana is fortunate in having an executive who
can discover such a scintillating, coruscating view of the
accomplishment of the Thirteenth assembly. Governor
Stewart's interview brightens everything. If his opinion
proves correct, we shall have even greater cause for satis
faction. That it will prove correct, every good citizen
hopes. For there is much more than mere party politics in
the laws which the Thirteenth assembly enacted.

Modern Women
By Frederic J. Haskin.
Ameritan women enjoy a greater
degree of social freedom than do the
wiomten i any other nationality. As
a result they have a courage and :in
tintlpendence which no other women
possess. Btetause the American woman
has been trusted from her earliest
girliood, sl tidemonstrates her ability
eciurately to distinguish liberty from
license and to protect herself from tin
welcomi' advances. In Europe a wtiitan
is depi''dint upon her husband for
('very intg of social recognition. In
America it is the womna who de
t'ttines every suitl landmark. The
American iman, iusy with coimieriial
and itliustrial interests, gives little
heed to stati matters except as they
are forced upon his attention by the
women of his family. The American
womani has absolute fre~edomn In all
mattlers pertaining to socit t conven
tions and 111 manl dare criticire her
In Europe the girls of the family
are second in imtportaintce to their
brothers. If there is money enough to
give a liberal edut ation to ilt of the
children. the girls receive it; if not,
the boys are educated first and the
daughters pick up whatever desultory
learning they can atsort without any
drain upon the famuily pockcethookc. In
America it is not inusait to hear n
maln remtairk: ''I cannot afford to send
both of tiy children to college so I
have decided iti give nuy daughter the
preference-a man can itire easily
take his own wary In, the world."
Every American girl as far as her
cireumstncstes permit is privileged to
choose her iiwtt mide of lift' and hier

etety smit's upon her as long as she
is attractive and there are few tar
riers of prejudice to make her path
difficult. Frotm her hailyhood she is

In America more than in any other
country, the changing conditions of
modern life give to many women the
leisure to enjoy this liberty-she no
longer idles within the confines of
her home with a bit of useless em
broidery. She goes boldly out into the
broad world, seeking the wrongs she
may right and the needy she may help.
This feminine Sir Galahad in her
growing strength each year opens the
doors of grim factories in order that
thousands of little children may have
freedom in the fresh air and sunshine.
She provides them generously with
playgrounds and schools and with
proper care for their neglected little
bedies. She goes to the aid of her less
fortunate sister, making her hours
of labor shorter, her wages larger, Ilir
conditions easier. Secure in her own
freedom, she can even lend a helping
hand to the woman who sins and open
to her one-time hopelessness an
avenue to future well being. It is the
freedom that has come to woman
which makes possible all of these good
works. The smaller her liberty, the
narrower her opportunities for general
Unfortunately, there is a reverse
side to this picture in which a few
women abuse this liberty which so
many are using gloriously. The mod
ern woman is free from many of the
obligations of her ancestors. The ob
ligation of toiling for her family, of
bearing children, of being in subjec
tion after the admonition of St. Paul,
no lofger rests upon her. This failure
to recognize certain moral obligations
has been interpreted by a few of the
parasitic class as an excuse for shrink
ing all duties and responsibilities, and
constitutes an abuse of the liberty
which it should be woman's highest
glory to improve. The freedom from
the old-time subjection to her hus
band, which the American woman em
phasizes continually, has been brought
about by the modern theory of indi
vidualism, which is stronger in Amer
ice than in any other country. It is
sometimes so grossly abused that its
advantages are questioned, but to the
optimist even this abuse is a process
in the evolution by which the progress
of the whole race is being developed.
Clergymen complain of the fact that
women no longer are restrained by re
ligious faith and that there is a dan
gerous amount of free thought and
skepticism among them. The modern
woman insists upon the freedom of her
religious views, but as Miss Helen
Gould recently pointed out, there was
never a time in the history of the
world when women were so loyally
supporting and aiding in the work of
the church or when the clergymen
were so dependent upon them.
Olive Schreiner claims that the ob
jection which certain men make to the
freedom of woman and the liberty
she enjoys tinder social approbation
of choosing any field of activity she
prefers, either outside or in addi
tion to the time-honored one of child
bearing, arises solely from a jealousy
of her success. She avers that no
objections are on record from men
which would hinder a woman from
engaging in any laborious piece of
Work which was not attractive from
the standpoint of remuneration. She
claims that men object only to the
professional woman who commands an
income he would feign enjoy for his
own expenditure. The woman doctor,
who keeps her own carriage and has
a list of patients yielding an annual
income running into the thousands, is
the cause of the strong protest made
by men against the freedom of
women to choose their own callings.
Mrs. Schreiner is better acquainted
with Englishmen than Americans, but
the objection which was made recently
by a member of the American Society
of Engineers to young women being
permitted to take a course in me
chanical engineering, was based in his
statement: "American men are too
chivalrous to wish women to do such
unpleasant work." The chivalry does
not, however, as yet apply to the un
educated women who are permitted to
work in some of the great steel mills
of this country, separating sheets of
steel under conditions that most men
would deem decidedly laborious. De
spite the occasional objection, the
American woman is exercising her lib
erty to choose her own calling abso
lutely and, whatever her mistakes, her
freedom cannot be curtailed.
The ability of the American woman
to care for and protect herself is dem
onstrated fully by the character of the
American working girl. In England,
the store girls, for example, have no
liberty of any kind. They are required
to lead a nun-like existence in an in

The one Idea that educators in
America endeavor to impress upon
young girls is that they are absolutely
trustworthy. Even in fashionable
schools where chaperones are pro

afraid of your mishehaving in any
way. We know that your own self
respect will prohibit that. We have a
chaperone go with you for your com

opinions of others. Our confidence in
each of you personally would not de

almost necessary to girls who have

the suburbs. The flood swept away
the city administration, t4mporarily at
least, and brought in what amounts to
a commission form of government.
Immediately martial law was pro
claimed, the municipal administratioi
was eclipsed. Adjutant General Wood
for the moltent became supreme un

this, Mr. Patterson was appointed

Coroner J. W. McKemy estimated
that 100 bodies have been recovered,
though there are records of only 72.
He said that many had been burled
without the usual official action and
that in many cases he did not expect
to get records.
Hundreds of persons, still looking
for relatives, passed along the lines
at the morgues. Only a few bodies
have been identified.
Eight persons suffering from diph

With warmer weather the greatest
problem was the removal of dead
