The debate calendar at the univer
sity is now complete and Montana is
assured four platform battles. Great
est interest centers in the contest with
the University of Oregon. Oregon has
claimed the western championship in
debate for several years, having vic
tories over Washington, California and
Stanford to her credit. Montana last
year climbed to the champoinship of
the Rocky Mountain conference, and
an opportunity to determine the lead
ership in forensic work west of the
Mississippi is now offered.
The triangular debate between C'on
zaga, Montana Agricultural college
and the university is again scheduled,
as is also a debate with the North
Dakota Agricultural college.
Seven men will be chosen to defend
the forensic honor of the university.
These men will make up three teams,
one of which will debate two different
schools. The seventh representative
will act as alternate.
The questions have not yet been
agreed upon. Tryouts will be held
after the close of the Thanksgiving
recess. At this time 13 men will be
chosen and before the Christmas holi
days the final elimination contest will
be held which will determine the mem
bership of the teams.

," :.::
In looking over my announcement made to the voters of Missoula
County in last Sunday's Missoulian I am not quite satisfied with tha
closing paragraph; it rends as follows: '"If elected to the office of
County Clerk and Recorder I pledge you a material reduction In the ex
pense of conducting the affairs of this office." This does not seem
sufficiently definite and I hereby correct this defect.
If elected to the office of County Clerk and Recorder I pledge to the
taxpayers of this county a saving of at least $3,000.00 per annum in the
item of salaries alone, and I will do this without lowering the efficiency
of the service, or without imposing any unnecessary burden on any em
ploys of the office, or lowering the rate of wages.
Yours respectfully,

In order that'We migh.-be better un
derstood we ask our opponents to an
swer three questions:
1. Will you please explain why it
is that so many of our best citizens
who are working for humane progress
are in favor of woman suffrage? And
we cite such folks ab Roosevelt, rTyain,
Riis, Abbott, Addarts, Walton, David
Oarham Phillips and Dr. Shaw.
2. Will you please explain why it Is
that those states and countries which
have equal suffrage have not yet seen
fit to repeal the law? And In :con
junction to this, why is it that. most
of our states which are granting this
suffrage are those bordering the states
which already have it?.
3. Will you please explain why it
is that those forces which are op
posed to equal stfffrage are also op
posed to progress? And we refer you
to the fact that in the last campaign
in Mlichigan the expenses of the anti
suffrage party were paid by the Michi
gan Liquor Dealers' associAtion: to
the fact that in Montana the S..loon
Men's association has had each mem
ber pledge at least 25 votes against the
suffrage; to the fact that in:the last
campaign in North Dakota, the only
candidate for governor who wanted
the saloons back into that state was
also opposed to woman suffrage?
WVo advocate woman suffrage as an
evolutional necessity and aid.
1. We bhelieve it is necessary for the
development of society. Government
exists for several reasons among
which are: (a) Protection of prop
erty, whereby the energy of men and
wolnman were united and a government
vas necessary to protect their acqulisl
tions. (b) Protection of persons. This
we see in the early organization of
tribes and clans to guard against the
intrusion of similar tribes from other
valleys and regions. (c) The admin
istration of justice. This is to ward
off the deteriorating influences which
arise within the society and govern
ment. And this justice is also used
as guide posts. (d) For the develop
ment of society. In this we need
women as mnuch as men. In Montana
as a territory we had a rough, crude
government in which a few men
usurped all of the government. Then
women came and homes were con
structed and instituted. After this or
ganization we evolved the supreme
court to guard against corruption and
eruption of our society. Now we have
a republican form of government, but
it has only helped half of the people.
If self-government is good for men it
ought to he good also for women. This
republican self-government produces
the highest type of government.
2. We believe it is necessary for the
developmtent of a pure democracy.
First we freed ourselves from English
tyranny of the revolutionary war.
Then we permitted the franchise for I
men with property only. Under this
rule only about ten per cent of the mener
over 21 ye'rs of age were given the
franchrse. Then Thomas Jefferson and
other democratic-minded men gave
rights to ill white men. Then the
civil war gave it to the negro. Now
we terely ask you te'permit 1ne moire
$tep in the evolutlop.,f' a pure democ«
racy and give the franchlse to women.
Will we be a pure democracy without
8. We believe it is a necessity for
the completion of our common laW.
Under the old common law, marriage
was a comrplete despotism. The per
sonality of women became completely'
merged into that of the-r husbands.
Under the canon law, marriage was a
benevolent despotism. Women were
men's obedient and unquestioning sub
jec'.. Today, our common law is in
cUned to look upon marriage as a
partnership of equal duties. We want
woman suffrage to give equal rights
and privileges.
4. We believe it is a biological ne
cesslty. The one see cannot exist
without the other. This is self-evi
dent. They must rise or fall together.
Ve cannot expect to make a great ad
nance unless we consider the wel
fare of the whole of our society, Men
cannot expect to make material prog
'ess wh'le women are permitted to
stand still, or even to retrograde. We
already know that history proves that
n nation is krtwn- by thh type of its
5. We bel'eve women have demon
strated that they are needed. They
proved, and ,e discovered, that they
have a mind, a muscle, and ability.
Suffrage to women was not possible
until we realized th;s. We do not
want this development to be halted. It
is the grip of democracy on the hearts
of women just as it was on the men
in 1776. It is not a revolutionary
process, it is an evolutionary neces
sity. A woman is greater than a
women; she is a human being. Women
merely want to be considered the
equal of men within their own limita
tions. Man need the aid of women "if
they wilt to advance intellectually.
Women do not want to be looked upon
as inferior merely because of the fact
of sex. And is the female sex really
Demand of the ballot is only inci
dental to the breaking down of the
artificial relation that exists now: and
which has been as detrimental to men
as to women. Nature has ordained a
fundamental law-that folks should
marry, and no artificial convention of
society, like equal suffrage, will break
down or have the slightest influences
against this nature. Motherhood is
not a sacrifice for intellect or vice
versa. If nature intended women
merely to be a mother, they would not
have been given an intellect. Men are
not taken from business because they
vote, neither will the women. Self
reverence, self-knowledge, self-con
trol-these three things men and
women seek and without which they
are poor indeed. The question is not
the right of women to vote, but the
need of them to vote.
Montana is a growing state. We
want to make good. We do not want
a heirarchy; we want government at
the consent of the governed. This in
eludes the woman. If men thought of
women as units instead of relation
ships, the ease would be settled at
once. Women insist on being con
sidered; and resist being termed "pri
vate property." In the west has been
made the greatest advances of the
country. In the west is where woman
suffrage has started and where it has
had its effects. Montana is a part
of this west. dMontana has great pos
sibilities and resources. We want to
be among the ranking states of the
Union; we need a good government
before this is possible: Men have
made some mistakes and yet they have
given to us a very good state. I will
not admit that men have been alto
gether forgetful, dehased and negli
gent. But we have been hampered.
We need aid. We have some of the
same conditions and forces to fight
that other states have, and as we grow
we will meet more of these. We must
be fortified against them and prepare
for the great commonwealth that is
now in our dreams.
In Idaho they have local option;: also
a law clos!ng saloons early. In Mon
tana we permit saloons to rentain open
night and day, seven days of the week.
In Idaho, working women have a nine
hour working day law. Our law is
not thus provided. In Colorado they
*have the indeterminate sentence, and
the honor and trust idea. In Montana
we do not have this; as a contrast,
we heard only last week of the charges
of barbaric) cruelty in our state peni
tentiary. In Colorado they have a
state industrial school for girls, three
members of its board of five in con
trol are women. We have none such.
'They have a woman on the board of
examiners of the insane asylum.
Have we? We cite in authority Judge
Lindsey and John H. GCavriel. In Cali
fornia they have the mothers' pension
Jaw; teachers' pension law; require
ment of a wife's signature to the as
signment of a husband's wages. VWe
do not have these. As authority we
cite Francis J. lleney and W. P. Law
lor. judge.
We could go on, but space will not
permit. However, it is well known that
the older states of the east do not have
many of these laws, and we see the
great advance we have made over
them. We cannot segregate the vote
of the woman in suffrage states, but
in these suffrage states they have
these mentioned laws which the Mon
tana and the plder states do not
have. We conclude that suffrage to
women has been effective, and we
see that women have done things.
Recently the president of France or
dered the women to the fields so the
men could be spared for war. Only
where strength is involved is a man
clearly aevi~or to 'women. Read

of the .women in Denver when they

now have the commission form of
government; note the recall of Judge
Weller of San Francisco. The injunc
tion and abatement law which puts
power into the hands of every citizen
is now adopted t!it ht suffrage states.
There are only ten suffrage states.
And only five non-suffrage states have
this law. Illinois, Oregon and Arizona
have only had woman suffrage for one
years, but in the other seven states
they have either local option or pro
hibition. Colorado has 50 dry coun
ties out of 62. Wyoming is 90 per
rent dry. Child lab'or seems to be
the first consideration of the voting
woman. California; Colorado, Kansas,
Utah, Illinois and Oregon have well
nigh perfect child labor laws and have
been indorsed by the National Child
Labor committee. They shine white
by comparison with the sordid trage
•lies of Alabama, South Carolina, New
Mexico, Georgia and lMississippi, where
babes of 12 are permitted to work in
credible hours for incredible pittances;
or side by side with the cranberry bogs
of New Jersey, the glass factories of
Pennsylvania and the canneries of New
York. Every one of the equal suf
frage states has a complete compul
sory-education law, splendidly safe
guarded and bulwarked by truant
sehools and truant-officers narental
schools and truant-officers, parental
delinquency provision, etc. Florida,
Mississippi, South 'Carolina and Texas
have, no such law, and in Alabama,
Georgia, North Carolina, Louisidna and
Virginia the laws are utterly worth
less. Colorado, Arizona and OLtegon
are the three great experiment stations
for penitentiary reform, and have
demonstrated the absolute practt~tibil
ity of the 'ihonor-and-trust' plan.
The slightest analysis of these sum
maries, and their comparisons with
non-suffrage states, develops certain
facts instantly. The woman vote is
definitely against the saloon, against
commercialized graft and against the
theory that an "open" town helps busi
ness. It is for more schools and bet
ter schools and compulsory education,
for the home in preference to the in
stitution, and for the dignity and pro
tection of motherhood in any and all
circumstances. It is against the ex
ploitation of the child and for almost
entire emphasis upon the corrective
note in pun'shment rather than the
punitive or deterrent.
From wh:itever point of view you
wish to approach this Issue, you can
not fail to find the preponderance of
evidence, in favor of woman suffrage.
Women make mistakes, but haven't
they the right to make mistakes? Men
have done many noble, things and
deeds, but they can also stand im
provement and help. Montana is fac
ing the great'issue of its history, and 1
we must face the issue honestly aind
squarely. Weigh the evidence fairly
and you must find in favor of woman
suffrage. Thr re is only one issue, in
my mind at present, whidh can bhe
greater for this state, and that is pro
hibition. PTut that .At follow when
we have laid the foundation for the
Some of theile statements have been
gleaned from nmaga'zinen and from lec
tures, but they have also been heard by
the common conversation of many of
our people. We must be able to stand
the test which is so strongly placed
upon us, and when we have -shown
that we are capable of doing things,
then we will have woman suffrage in
Montana, and next we will have prohi
bition; and as ottr influences vill be
felt we will yet see the day when these
two issues will be a part of our fed
eral constitution, and.w' will beulearer

Foresters of the United States are
interested in the announcement re
cently made by the American Genetic
association that tWo prises of $100
each have been offered for-two photo
graphs-one or the largest tree of a
hut-bearing variety in. the United
States, and one of the largest broad
leaf tree which does not bear edible
seeds. In'the first class, for example,
are included trees such as chestnut,
oak, walnut, butternut and pecan; and
in the second, trees such as elpi, birch,
maple, cottonwood, and tulip. poplar.
No photographs C(f cone-bharing trees
are wanted, since. if. is definitely
known that tite California big trees
have no rivals among conifers. At a
later time the association .may take up
the same question as between the
various kinds of conifersA-as pines,
spruces, firs, cedars and' cypresses,
The purpose of the competttion,, 'as
stated by the association, is to .find
out in what regions the native' trees
attain their largest growth, and under
what conditions they . thrive best.
When these large trees are :loated and
the measurements authent!cated, the
association hopes, that it may be pos
sible to secure seeds, cuttings, or
grafting wood from thrifty trees in
the region where they grow, to see
whether finer specimens may be prop
agated in other parts of the country.
It is hoped in this manner to get some
particularly choice straint of native
trees established in regions where good
specimens are not now found.
Influence of Heredity.
It is assumed by the assocltiQn that
seed from the region where the largest
trees grow ought to produce larger
and stronger trees than from regions
where only small trees are found, By
finding out where the large trees are
and then planting seeds from them hr
other locations, the association hopes
to demonstrate the practical Value to
horticulture and forestry or the laaws
of heredity. Now that reforestation
iq becoming a pressing prT+blem, the
question of seed trees which will pro
duce particularly good offspring is
naturally coming to the fore.
Other influences, of course, will
have a bearing on the subject, and the
results of the investigation may help
to settle the question as wbpwhethr
trees' can be acclimatized. li~ep it
they can not .be, there may be cases
where trees in a new environment may
make better growth than the best in
thgeir Uve raie. Thil s Asi44 to
be true of certain of the Australian
eucalypts, and of the Monterey pine
which d6es not amount to much in its
native location in California but has
proved of great value in New Zea
The federal forest service, hhs con
ducted some studies along this line
and has discovered, for example, that
the Douglas fir of the Rocky moun
tains and the Douglas fir of the Pa
cific coast, while the same species,
have different characteristics and will
produce trees like the parent stock,
modified somewhat, however, by envi
ronment. For example, if the two
forms are planted together, during the
earlier period of its life at least the
Pacific co'ast form will make a larger
and stronger growth than the Rocky
mountain tree, provided it is not af
fected by adverse local conditions.
Several other questions, such as the
climatic requirements of trees grown
in different localities, will, of course,
enter into the final solution of the
problem. It has been found in Oer
many, for' example, that the Pacific
coast form of Douglas fir Is not as
hardy as the Rocky mountain form,
