Missoulian Publishing Company TUESDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1914. A DECLARATION I warn our opponents that the fight has only just begun. What ever may betide in the future, of one thing the disciples of an easy opportunism may rest assured-I will never abandon the men and women who drew around me to battle for these principles. They and I stand with our faces toward the morning; we will never be sun dered from one another; and we will never yield the ground we have taken or flinch from the fight to which we are pledged. -Theodore Roosevelt. THE ERA OF CANS Ever notice that with the eannet drama, canned music, canned fond ani canned what-not, people begin to de niand, in this busy age, canned poli tics, as well? Longwinded speeches and statemcent no longer get by. People will not ,r to hear them, they will not read theie The candidate w\ho wants to get thenr must cut it short. This happy state of affairs in till result, first, of the increasing valule o time; second, of wider spread educat tion. Nowadays, a larger and largec per cent of the voters know as iniuel about the issues as the aspirants- and people always chafe when they err told what they already know. AISNE BATTLE.

In 1897 = began the reorganization of the bankrupt railroad proper ties soon followed by the industrials. This condition of ac cumulations following the '93 crisis was of such magnitude that these reorganizations swept with accelerating velocity up to and including 1905. Clouds here and there appeared to be.soon dissolved. The momentum however had become so great that the indif ferents in both classes had been swept in, and then came the ; abrupt recoil of 1907. The heretofore accepted theory that wealth under the benignant conditions of peaceful competition increased g twice as fast as population had been shunted into the limbos of hasbeens, and the resources of the country was multi plying by new ratios. It was a period of financial drunkenness. Fortuitous conditions in fields and mines with their combined unpre cedented outputs were mute conspirators in this economic orgy. The last four months of 1907 discovered to the financiers of the country, the futility of capital made from the wasp of financial jugglery. They again realized in the broken reeds on every side that only two sources, "nature's powers and man's powers," could be relied upon. However the cry became insistent that the source of trou ble lay in the circulating medium-money-was falling be t hind 'in its functions and adaptability to the new order of a things. Sight was lost of the economic requirement that stability disappears when untoward capitalization becomes regnant. The immediate result was the National Monetary Commis sion with Senator Aldrich and Representative Vreeland as chairman and vice chairman. After wide and laborious in vestigation and study this commission put upon our statutes the law bearing their hyphenated name which was first in voked last August. From 1908 to 1914 the country in the old-fashioned way had been catching up to its apparent capitalization of 1907. Six years of fair and sometimes vigorous retrenchment had brought the circulating medium into natural relationship with our capital. The banking conditions of this country were never in a stronger position to meet financial shock than July 29th. This cataclysm, had it happened in 1907, would have found weakness where, in 1914 it found strength that is equilibrium between capital and demands. We held, to only mention three items, nine hundred mil lion bushels of wheat and sixteen million bales of cotton, transmuted into money, sixteen hundred million dollars to which add our gold of eighteen hundred million dollars and in these three liquid assets we had three thousand four hundred millions. Back of these factors in ability wealth lay the power of individual initiative in so moving and placing these elements of actual capital that the future was looming bright for in dustrial enlargement.. The clock struck with the declaration of war by Austria, completely disorganizing for the time the productive ma chinery of the United States. Society is an organism, and its unification world-wide. That the banking machinery of the country was equal to the sudden and tremendous demands by the five great pow ers upon its immediate resources has been already amply proven. The first week of August and by the declaration of war by England the financial poise had been regained and the whole country was arranging for its new conditions. This country, however, must realize henceforth New York and not London will be the financial center. While we are without the war zone our position as financial over lord will demand the highest type of bank management ab solved from promotions in any form.

These costs ,f pI'ro(lLdtion are at present bolrne l:lrgely Lby the worklmen and taI:payers. The injustice lies inl that the employer pocketing his prof its and the consumer of the finished prodiit or user of the service which the business supplies, are not paying their share of the cost of that which they are getting;. The progressive state convention in dorsed the proposed workLman's coin pensation act, to he voted on Notem ber '3d. It niIy be noted that it is al nost identical with tIhe measure passed by the almost unanimous vote of the house of the last legislative assembly, but blocked in the stronghold of the interests, the senate. It may be of further interest to bear in mind the sources of the present opposition to the proposed law and the methods employed. Literature, cards, etc., are frequently distributed to farmers by representatives of the big corpora.e interests of the state, showing an un IIusual solicitlde for the farmers on nccoln i of the porsihle burden to him bIy reason, is they claim, of being in Seluded in tthis hill. If these same in terests had heret ofore m:tle even a plretence of hcfriending the farmers, thelir protest:lillns might be entitled to considra:ctin. Since when did the invisible government of Mon'ana, in this instince visible, becomne the guard i.in of the farmers' rights? In the first place, the law, by enu Iner;ting certain industries as includ di1, by necessary implication excludes those of the same or similar classes not enumerated. That is one of the cardinal rules of st;itutory construe tion. Secondly, the Washington law is in tis reslpect similar to the proposed Montlana act and the rule established in that state is that farmers are not included, even when engaged in clear ing and grubbing wih machinery, as incident to the business of farming. The compulsory feature is also ob jected to,) urging the elective plan. Some so-called elective laws, notably O1hio, Nebraska and Iowa acts, take away the defenses of assumed risk, contributory negligence, negligence of fellow servant, in case the employer refuses to come in, thus compelling employers to elect and really amounts to conlmpulsory election. Another argument advanced Is that in self denfense, industries will not employ any but single men, without dependents, is equally puerile. That iargument applies with greater force under the present or old system, as if I workers have no dependents, there is c Sno one entitled to maintain an action i or claim for damages in case of death from injuries.

About twenty five of 'em have predicted the ma neuvers wrong, already. It doesn't make much difference how much money a feller has got Sjust so he has got plenty of it, and - a man doesn't have to live to be 150 S years old to find that out, either. A torn without a brass band is like a family without a phonograph. 'S It is liable to worry along and have a pretty good time in life. Another thing that Job never did was to try to unscrew the top off'n Y a glass fruit jar. Bud Perkins is so stingy that he d stole a ham so that he could be sent to the county jail and get a hair cut P for nothing. Miss Amy Stubbs, our village mil a liner, says compelition is so fierce in her line that there ain't more than 800 per cent profits in trimmed hats e any more, &kd she is thinkin' of goin' S out of buslaess. There i. about as much secrecy about a courtship in a town-of 1,200 as there is about a magazine explo sion aboard a battleship. As-boon as a feller and a gal are seen tpgether in an ice cream parlor folks begin to ; wonder when they are going to git r married. If all the church members I know are go!ng to heaven, it sometimes seems to me as though I ain't so d clurrted partikler about it. It begins to look as though corned beef and cabbage is a partnership that ain't goin' to be dissolved in some time-or digested, either. There ain't no feller who is so much of a bore as a professional optimist. Every feller wants to laugh most of the tinme but he has got to cry once or twice a year to sort of oil up the machinery. FALL. I cai'e not how the birdles sing Their charming farewell sun'mer lays. I cannot say I'm crazy o'er The beauty of these autumn days. I care not how the leaves may turn From beauteous green to burnished gold. I care not for the glorious skies O(f fall the poets have extolled. There's just one thought I harbor now; A thought that stirs my very soul, All else grows pale beside the fact, I've got to buy rely winter's coal. Neuralgia of the face, shoulder, hands, or feet requires a powerful remedy that will penetrate the flesh. BALLARD'S SNOW LINIMENT pos sesses that power.

Adv. settled by each voter for himself is whether or not the benefits allowed are just. are insufficient or excessive. For instance, is $6,000, allowed for death, a just award? The law is framed on the theory -that labor shall stand half and industry or consumer half. A verdict of $12,000 would un doubtedly he sustained by the cotirt. Much larger judgments have been al lowed. But in case of a lawsuit, the lawyer would take half, and the in jured party would be compelled to wait from two to four years until the case is finally examined in the supreme court or the case may be reversed for retrial or dismissed. Based upon the expectation of life, it would appear the award is not excessive. Employers have heretofore eagerly availed themselves of all the defenses known to the law, the dilatory tactics, the absolute denial, the defenses of assumed risk, contributory negligence and negligence of fellow servant, that in a great many instances have worked untold hardship on dependents of de ceased and expense to the community and state, and now that the laborer and society demands some measure of protection, it appears rather unseem ly for tlem to pursue the course adopted. A full and frank presentation of the tacts is always in order but efforts so obviously intended to mislead can serve no good purpose. I shall vote for this bill.

Thus England is able to draw half its field army fi'om India, leiving for garrison duty and detail only a little over 50,000 British troops amid a native population of 315,000,000.

While the loyalty of these orientals sheds honor on England, and while the common practice of warfare seems to justify their employment, the specta cle is a rather mournful one.
