Come down to the Bulletin office and sign n a monthly pledge THAT COMEDIAN STODDEN. Surely the workings iof the miid, or what passes for a mind. in lie head of the pusillanimous indivoid.ual we call our mayor. h are ipast uiderstanding. 1 iring his campaign and immediately after 1he l,,politic(al acci.dent which placed him in lhe mayor's seat. a chair he fails ttiserahly to fill. hizzoner prated long anil loudly about a giverttmelni I the city 'or thie people, by lhe lpeople and of the peo.l.. biut. since his iiulot.ion to office the wishes of the people-- and when we say lpeople, we exclutde the lprofiteers--- seemi to have no considerationi in Mr. Stidden's ti',thods at all. i fact. fromI the very little effect the sugges tions of' the citizenry generally have had ou Mr. Stodden. we are itinlined to believe tlhat his dome is of the most solid ivory. Forced by lhe Bulletin and hoitt sewives of the city to estab lish a curb market, thlie amiable Mr. Sltoddeti immedialtely set ablut protecling the interests of his friends, the profileering it'i'ehanltts and wholesalers. at. that market. Although as is well known, the primary and s.11 le purlise of the market was to lri';'sent an olortunity 'for the ,produicers ii sell direct to the etosuimers and thus force the Irofiteers to lcut their exorbitant plrices, Mr. Stodden has permilled thle profiteers to occupy per mouent shills att the market. Io the piractical exclusion of the ac-ial toducers. XVe even .tnderstand that the notorioius SL ,.,y has tilossotied out as a imirket mian \within the past few days. The stall, we understat I. dies nit,, of cou.,rse, contain lth: honoralble profieer's nont'. nor does the permit bear his tni ;. but it is Little Willie Loui y's goodls that are sold and it is to Lilfle W\illie's til t hat the receipts find their way. .\, Ilheni when lthe question tif' a market master came up, wlatio does the honorable Sl,,tltlen iame but T. C. ijTruseott, o'' ::er of two retail stores anl part ow'iter, at leaist. in two stalls at hike market. lt addition to those accomltlislments,' Mr;.

And inl the light of knowledlge of whom the mayor has so lected for thlie matrket master's j41I), we do not woler tlhat lie hesitated about muking his selection known. \Ve are advised. authliorilatively,'tllait the mayor's appointee is inie J. L. Legare. itllnoubtedly an estimable gentlenin i personally. but absolutely uisalisfactory for mariket master bhecause of the company he keels.

Of li.iirse. it is possible that Mr. Legate ,icould actceplt the posilion of mar het master and then ful'il the duties ol that position to the tl detriment of his former employers, )but it is not at all probable. ii lie may know all about vegetables, friuit and poultry" and he a shloul, having worked for the Silver I1ow Commission coni Ipaty, but tlhrugh thlie very ature of his emlpliyment with that i company his aceomplishntilts are along thlie lite of making theI trahfic hear all that it. will sitat.l. And that is niotwhat we look foe in a niarkel master. ,Ist.ed we wvant a man who, while willing to see the itproducets get a fair price forl their prod nels, will insist tlhat the consiniers be protected from usurious profits. And Mr. legare gives no indication of being that kind n of a man. II is to be expected that at the next nmeeitng of the conneil 0 Mr. Stodden may stir up courage enough to inme Mr. Legare as nmarket master. It is also to bie expected that a majorily of the r council will refuse to confirm lhe appointment. And, if past T performances are any criterion of what may he expected in the v fuiuire, it is highly probable that Mr. Stoddlen will again call i somle of the councilien anl the women aiind labor represenla- a lives who happen to oppose his appointment liars. Truly Mr. Stodden is a joke as a mayoSl. 11 is to be regretted that there is not a scheduled meeting of the council during the slay in the city of the delegates to the Montana Municipal league, so that the visiting city ofl'icials might he furnished an intl+resting vaudeville performancle by our doughty mayor.
