WHAT WE CAN DO Hard times, east, w, s., north and south-curtailment everywhere-begin to drive the usual percent of unem ployed onto the blind baggage. Jour nalism does not escape. Forces are being cut down everywhere, appar ently. Newspaper men, good ones, out of work and willing to take anything, stream into Montana. Some of these arb highclass, clean cut young men, worthy of every con sideration. It is the policy to keep the family men and let out the bach elors, so, most of the jobless unfor tunates are young. In some cases, they have' had to take to the blind baggage-and not a few of them know what it is to want bri ii. A civilization which sends si:01,i labor of this class into rags an'd pen ury, at regular intervals, is more wasteful than war. These boys could be conscripted into Flanders trenches and know no harder fate than is their lot here. What can we do? That is the old, old question. In our o .n profession, we give liberally, as a role-far more liberally than we can aff, !d. No vet eran journalist but can roughly esti mate a neat percent of his earnings, freely donated to brothers out of work. WVe, who can ill afford-it is we alone who give. And of course, .the destitution in journalism is trifling compared to that in other professions, in the trades and among the casual workers. There, it is terrible, right now. This is the really serious problem that confronts our republic-and the problem none of the old parties have touched. The democrats - whose false economic theories are largely re sponsible for our depression-pay ex :ctly as much attention as the repub licans; none at all. The people hud die into what security they can find, like dumb cattle, and endure it. Yet this awful waste is quite unnecessary. There ought to be, in this, the largest, righest, most resourceful civilized land on the globe, plenty of work for ev erybody at good wages, all the time. The progressive movement may have failed; but the yearning for a sili tion of this and similar evil is not (dad in American hearts; and if the dnemo cratic and republican parties continue to ignore unemployment, the people will some day turn, who n rush, to some party that will m irt. There is a suspicicdi in Carranza's breast that Villa's n~ lh,,l of elimi nating him will savor of Huerta's methbd of eliminating Madero. The first thing we know, we shall wake up and find ourselves in a row with those Greasers. "The forces of the Devil have seized upon the world," it is said; and it would seem to be so. There is no injustice but sooner or later wakes the sticks and stones, to cry out in unison. TI here i't much cholce between W, .bMtb Pu4 Mr.: SulIlva, JUDGE HOLLOWAY'S RHE:L CTIQON The re-election of Judge Holloway shows that the people do not always forget, as is sometimes alleged, faithful serv ice in a public official. In recognition of his clean; record as a member of the su preme court, the progressive party made no nomination for the position, and very largely supported Judge Holloway for re-election. This action undoubtedly made his election, this year, pot. sible. The people of the state have chosen wisely in the matter of the supreme court judge. With Judges Holloway, Brantley and Sanner constitut ing their highest judicial tribunal, the people of Montana may feel sure that law and equity will be administered as faithfully as it is possible so to do, with due allowance for the imperfections of men. PENROSE AND PENNSYLVANIA The voters of Pennsylvania have returned Boise Penrose to the senate of the United States, by a plurality approxi mating 250,000. Gifford Pinchot, his progressive opponent, running second, and Michel Palmer, the democratic candi date, taking third place. It is alleged that the great corporation and the liquor in terests of Pennsylvania joined forces for the election of Penrose and expended in behalf of his candidacy, not less than $500,000. Already preparations ire being made to contest the legal ity of his election, before the senate committee on Privi leges and Elections, as the federal statute covering the elec tion of senators, limits the expenditures on behalf of a can didate to the sum of $10,000. In the case of Senator Stevensoni,, it was proven that he had expended about $100,000 in his campaign, but that was before the passage of the federal law. By virtue of his re-election and the rule of senority, Pen rose becomes, next to Gallinger, who is now 75 years old, the titular leader of the republican party in the senate. The election of Penrose is a liability that the republicans can ill-afford to assume at this time. Penrose represents everything that is vicious in 'Ameri can politics. His open and notorious alliance with every corrupting influence in Pennsylvania politics is admitted. That the second largest state in the union should delib erately choose him as its highest representative in the coun cils of the nation is a sad commentary on the citizenship of Pennsylvania. THE PRESS AND VICE Newspapers must drive vice from America, Arthur Cap er, editor of the Topeka Capital and governor-elect of Kansas, told the International Purity Congress, in session in Kansas City,. Mo., last night. The newspaper, he de clared, is "peculiarly sensitive and responsive to enlightened public opinion," and "a word of commendation or censure from any man or women, spoken in honesty and sincerity, will have weight in the newspaper office in America. "The elevation of the moral standard of our people," he continued, "and the suppression of public vice of every form rests not with your congress, lawmakers or churches, but with the American people." All of which is very well so far as it goes; but there is another, and to the press very serious phase, of the situa tion. It is that the public quickly forgets, while enemies m ade in any cause never forget. A newspaper, for instance, may risk its future in fighting liquor, incurring undying enmity from the lquor interests, without assuring itself per manent support of any sort from that portion of the public which owes it most. A newspaper is a delicate institution. It cannot survive on an honest basis without public support. The kept press, of course, survives on any basis, but is without influence. Newspapers which take up the fight for humanity too often find, as individuals learn, that virtue is not only its own reward but its only reward. WILD-CAT INVESTMENT IS OUT OF FASHION By Robert H. Benedict. Many a good lesson may be learned f-om a brief period of financial tight s ess. Now that the skies are clearing, we can look around us and count our blessings. One of them is the recently acquired knowledge for some of us that get-rich-cuick schemes are fool ish traps. The value of sound investments has been so clearly shown to us the past few months that we wonder how so rlany of us could ever have been in duced to part with money aggre gating many millions a year for in vestment in wild-cat ventures. We have become sophisticated as a people during the past few years, and have learned to avoid the promoter of gold mines, oil fields, and bonanza land developments. We have become shy of investments promising 10 per cent and yielding only total loss of money invested. Good old conservative 6 per cent on mortgage loans, or 3 to 4 per cent on savings bank deposits, look much bet ter to some people than formerly. It is far better to be sate than to be sorry. Blue sky finance Is going the way of green goods and gold bricks. Prudence 4q replaicing the overpowering desire, to make a quick turn and bedome rich over night. Have you noticed how much less you hear of the shearing of lambs in the stock market these days? The lambs have become wise old sheep, and are leaving the stock gam bling game to insiders. Investment goes on as usual, giving the stock ex changes work to do, but speculation has decreased greatly during the past two or three years. The less money wasted on wild-cat schemes, the more we have for in vestment in legitimate enterprises. As individuals we are making a start at working out our financial sal vation. We must learn yet to save more.

Burrage; the Bostohf mine promoter, owes $2,500,000 for commis sions indident to the sale of big hold ings in Chile, will: be. argued tomor row, when the suait of Louis S. Ross of BroC1lie and.Arthur S. Plews of London for $1,250,000 each against Burraga, edome uP again before Thomas W. Proctor, who is acting as auditor .is the case. The action was brought in the supreme oott.t here, and for sev eral mi6nths testimony has been taken by the auditor. The cases came to a puddeq halt last month, when Arthur .8. Plews refused to come to America to testify as ai withess for Ross. The situation itowing out of the failurd of Plews to appear led to a ,spirited debate in the supreme court petween. Attorneys Hurlburt and Whip ple. The necessity of securing the evi ,dence caused Mr..iuHlTburt to suggest that he and Mr. Whipple be ordered to go to England to question, Plews. ,Whipple did not, take kindly, to the idea, and Judge Hammond said he would not direct. either attorney to make the journey. Attorney Hurlburt offered to pay all the expenses of Mr. Plews from London to Boston, and to house him while he remained here, but Mr. Whipple, attorney for Engineer Ross, said he. was convinced Plews could not come, aa he was troubled fi nancially by the war and that he has a son at the front. It was decided to send interroga tories to a commissioner in London, where the deposition of the wittesa might be taken. The result of this action will be the main issue when the case comes up tomorrow. Ross, who is a mining engineer, seeks to recover from Burrage commis sions of 5 per cent on profits of $25, 000,000, alleged to have been made by Burrage by the salq of mining inter ests in Chile. Plews is also seeking a 5 per cent commission, so that the to tal amount involved is $2,500,000. SpAr of the Moment By Roy K. Moulton. The Optimist.

V. Stewart, who went from Helena to Virginia City to vote, came this way this morning on his way home to spend a few houts with his brother, Judge W. R. C. Stewart and family, and he was taken very much by sur prise when he was met at the depot as his train arrived by the Montana State College Regimental band and a large delegation of the faculty .and students of the college, as well as a number of representative citizens. As they marched from the depot fol lowing the band and the automobile in which rode the governor, President Hamilton of the college and other citizens, they were met at Main street by another delegation and about 500 men and women marched up Main street as an escort to Montana's chief executive officer. They halted at Black avenue, where the band played for a few moments, and then there were loud cheers for Governor Stew art and President Hamilton of the college, Appreciate His Stand. President Hamilton stood in an automobile and called the crowd to order and there was immediate silence on the street. He stated that the celebration was not on.account of any news regarding._consolidation, as there were not sufficient returns from the election to know how the result would be, but that this was an informal re ception to the governor of the state, to show that the citizens of Bozeman 'and the college people appreciated the stand Governor Stewart had taken for law and order in Montana, and that no matter what were the results of the election, the people of this city always would have a high regard and the greatest respect for Governor Stewart for the stand he had taken in this critical period of the history of the state. Loud applause greeted President Hamilton's remarks, and as. the governor arose, he was cheered most generously. Governor Stewart expressed his sur prise and pleasure at the demonstra tion accorded to him, and thanked the people for their expression of good will. He spoke especially of his satisfaction at the results of the elec tion in Montana, not so much for what it meant in a political way, but because it showed the all important feature that the people of this great statb stood for law and order and that this in itself was the greatest vic tory ever won in the state of Mon tana. "No state or organization." the gov ernor said, "will prosper without hav ing mespect for the Deity and reespeot for the flag." Referring to the state Smeat that had been made that he wanted to be a czar of the state, but that he felt it was a greater honor to be a respected citizen of Gallatin county or of his own home in Madi son county, or of any of the coun ties in the stateQ than it would be to be a .czar of Montana. Whatever the results of the election, the governor said, there would be some people who would be greatly disappointed, but the people of the state were good losers and they would accept the results with good grace, for "the voice of the majority is the voice of the only sovereign that Mon tana knows." In closing, Governor Stewart again expressed his hearty appreciation of the cordial greeting from the students and citizens of Bozeman, saying that "this morning will be cherished in my memory as one of the happiest mo ments in my life." the band then played and the crowd disbanded.

CRAFT OF THE MESOPOTAMIANS. The Kufa, a curious circular boat made of basketwork, and seen no where else in the world, is a common sight in Mesopotamia. The ferrymen charge only a cent for each passenger. There is one good point about these strange craft: "they are not easily up set. Their carrying capacity also is great, and the kufa men pack in their passengers like herrings in a barrel. I had the good luck to take a photograph of the actual building of a kufa on the banks of the Tigris river, says a writer, in the Wide World magazlie. They are made of date-palm branches woven together with rope made out of leaves of the same palm, thickly plastered on the outside with bitumen. They range from four to twelve feet in diameter. Nowhere but on the Tigris and Lower 'Euphrates rivers can one see these curious craft, which serve principally for the transport of passengers, coun try produce, and beasts of burden across the river. About three men are required to make a kufa of respectable size, and it takes them some 20 days to build it. Like the kelek, the kufa is of great antiquity, for both these strange craft were in use long before the time of Christ. The evidence of this is in diputable, for on the bas-reliefs taken from the Palace of Sennacherib both craft are clearly represented.
