To the Public:
It was amusing to read the poor
excuse and plea of Mr. (Capt.) Cutts
in the Butte Miner of this date: In
which he said that the Dunn gang
attempted to pull off something in
precinct 4-B. This voting place is
directly across the street from C. J.
Kelly's residence on West Broadway.
I happened to be an actual observer
of nearly everything that happened
at that particular polling place from
midnight until 2:30 o'clock in the
morning.
First of all, the Cutts crowd had

appointed all of the judges-not even
giving the republicans a judge or a
clerk. Why did they do this? Simply
because they wanted to be sure of
their men (as clerks) when the time
came to count the votes. There was
no chance for a Dunn man to even
question or challenge a voter or the
count. This scheme was prearranged
so as to offset any chance that Dunn
might have to win. The Cutts crowd
figured that they had to steal the
election, so they made sure to have

school trustees of school district No.
1, Silver Bow coiunty, Montana, here
by submit to ihe electors of the dis
trict the following declaration of our
principles:
We believe tIht all issues of pol
itics should be scnrupulously excluded
from the public schools, and we con
demn in severest terms the rec('ent
efforts of "citizon" members of the
district board to introduce into the
schools the detbasing influence of
their political propaganda. W\\ pro
test against the precedent recently
set of having an employe of the
board, in colmpalny with a lllmember
thereof, distriibute political literature
to the )rincilials of the graminitar
schools, with t.e request that the
same be, by the principals, distribnt
ed among teacthers and pupils. W\e
pledge our dletl"rimined opposition toi
such Ipractices.
While we believe that public build
ings of the district should be avail-)
alte for legitimatin; meetings of lit!
people of the district when not inll tse
for school plirpolle.'s, we condemn the'
use of -isuch hiiiltings as meeting
places of secretl societies where crini

for nleeded adlit ioiins and new build
