Dear Sir: Montana is now and has been since the beginning of the world war in the grasp of a group of profiteering wholesale and retail dealers in foodstuffs and other necessities, including coal. Prices have been arbitrarily advanced by the dealers to the stage where the incomes of the working people are inadequate to permit of the pur chase of sufficient necessities to keep body and soul together, and promises of further increases are made. Our state officials, who have given evidence that they are in league with the food. and coal pirates, have failed to give us relief, and we now look to your office to come to our assistance. As your United States district attorney for Montana you have E. C. Day, a self-confessed bribe-taker and a notorious friend of the inter ests which are now guilty of profiteering. Mr. Day has not only sig nally failed to take action against the profiteers, but seems to be ex tending them every protection in his power. As the result of the continued increases in price and the inactivity of our state officials as well as Mr. Day, we demand that you, in the interests of the people of the state of Montana, and to the end that the present reign of the plunderbund in this state be ended, immediate ly discharge E. C. Day from the office of United States attorney for the district of Montana and replace him with some one of integrity who will follow your orders and the wishes of the people and prosecute the food hoarders and the profiteers.

Recall Ben Franklin's Pledge to Irish Folk Congress Is Reminded of America's Promise. to Erin in Stirring Days of 1778. Asked to Make Good On It Washington, D. C., Oct. 20.--The following communication was sent to all members of congress by Daniel T. O'Connell, director of the Irish national bureau: The Irh'ish national bureau desires to call your attention to a fact hither to generally overlooked in consid ering the demands by American lov ers of liberty that no league of na tions be adopted that will bind Ire land forever in the shackles of slav ery. It is that the United States, by a pledge given in the trying days of 1778, is morally bound to aid the Irish nation in its fight for absolute independence. In that year congress, through its accredited representative in France. Benjamin Franklin, assured the Irish people of its cordial concern over their affairs and promised them that, if England did not right the wrongs which she had thrust upon them, America would find means to estab lish their complete freedom from the British yoke. Here are Franklin's very Words to the Irish people: "The misery and distress which your illfated country has been so frequently exposed to and has often experienced by such a combination of rapine, treachery and violence, as would have disgraced the name of government in the most arbitrary country of the world, has most sin cerely affected your friends in Amer ica, and has engaged the most seri ous attention of corgress. "I have in my commission to re peat to you, my good friends, the cordial concern that congress takes in everything that relates to the hap piness of Ireland; they are sensibly affected by the load of oppressive pensions on your establishment; the arbitrary and illegal exactions of public money by king's letters; the profuse dissipation by sincere ap pocintments with large salaries, and the very arbitrary and impolitic re strictions of your trade and manu factures, which are beyond example in the. history of the world . "We congratulate you, however, on the bright prospect which the west ern hemisphere has afforded to you and the oppressed of every nation. and we trust that the liberation of your country has been effected in America, and that you never will be called on for those painful necessary exertions which the sacred love df liberty inspires and which have en abled us to establish our freedom forever. . . . But if the govern ment whom you at this time ac knowledge does not, in conformity to her own true interest, take off and remove every restraint on your trade, commerce and manufactures, I am charged to assure you that means will be found to establish your free dom, in the fullest and amplest man ier. And. as it is the ardent wish of America to promote, as far as her other engagements will permit, a reciprocal commercial interest with you, I am to assure you they will seek every means to establish and extend it, and it has given the most sensible pleasure to have those in structions committed to my care, as I have ever retained the most per fect good will and esteem for the people of Ireland." It was the noted American writer,, the late Paul Leicester Ford, who chanced to discover the historic pledge while delving in official rec ords in London on a mission for the congressional library. The address, says Ford, was prob shiv printed on Franklin's private printing press at Passy. A large num ber of the broadsides were placed on board a Dlltch smuggler at 'Brest to be carried to Ireland. They were dis covered by an English privateer. whose commander delivered them to the captain of his majesty's ship Port land, by whom they were forwarded to the lords of the admiralty and later transferred to the files of the public record office. It was there that Mr. Ford discovered them. Ford, on his return to America, reprinted the pledge to Ireland in pamphlet form, in an edition of only 250 copies, of which few are known to be now in existence. One is on the shelves of the congressional li brary, and another is in possession of Michael J. O'Brien, historiograph er of the American Irish Historical society. New York, who probably was the first man in America to appre diate the full significance of the docu ment. HIow wide a circulation the original copy of this message of congress, which Franklin had "in his commis sion" to repeat to the Irish nation, actually had in Ireland, none can say. But that it was received is cer tain. The historiographer of the American Irish Historical society has discovered that one copy of it (and if one, probably many more) reached Ireland and was published in the Hi bernian Journal on Nov. 2-4. 1778. Lecky. the English historian, declares that the address was widely circu lated in Ireland. Thus did congress' message reach the hearts of the Irish people itself to secure for them their freedom. This pledge the United State Ihoul.l hold sacred. IS THIS THE SAME EDITOR? IT IS. WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH HIM? HE IS HORROR STRUCK. WHIY- BE CAUSE THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTIONISTS HAVE KILLED THREE '1MEN.

Notice to Advertisers Beginning Nov. 1, 1919, the advertising rates of the Butte Daily Bulletin will be increased about 40 per cent. Beginning today no new contracts will be entered into at the old rate. The new rates are not elastic. The new rate cards will be ready Oct. 25. Advertising men will be received at the office between the hours of 9:30 and 11:30 A. M. The new rates are not only justified, but a considerably higher rate would be in accord with the actual paid-up subscription list of the Bulletin, WHICH CAN BE SHOWN TO BE MUCH LARGER THAN THAT OF ANY OTHER DAILY PAPER PUBLISHED IN THE STATE OF MON TANA. -THE MANAGER. The Week Hogs and Pork Loins Banner Red Cross States Next Year's Crop Market England Settles Rail Strike Fiume Versus Revolution Thief Scares a Profiteer It's hard to believe that the farm ers are raising hogs which don't have pork loins; yet the packers could hardly explain market prices in any other way. Hogs are so abundant that they must declinet from $22 on Aug. 1 to $16.50 on Aug. 29, and pork loins are so scare that they go up in price from $34 a hundred weight on Aug 1 to $38 on Aug. 29. After the latter date, pork loins; broke a little. Perhaps the farmers sent in soltme old-fashioned hogs with loins. That is, they went down to $37 for a day or two and then went back to $38 up to Sept. 22. In the meantime hogs sold for $16.50 to $19, mostly around the former fig ure. And these hog prices are what is known as the top price. Most of the loins sold came from hogs which brought a good deal less than the top price at Chicago. Market actions such as this are a better proof of packer monopoly than the reports of the federal trade conm mission. Without monopoly, any change in consumers' demand which warranted a lower price would be felt in hog products first. Then hogs would decline. Or if the farmers raised so many hogs that supply war ranted lower prices, hog products would immediately take the down wyard course too. The Red Cross plans another drive in all but four states of the Union. These four states are omitted because of their oversubscription of previous drives. Officers of the organization feel that it would not be fair to ask these states which have made such a splendid showing in the past to con tribute again. The noteworthy thing about the Ibanner states is that all four were l characterized as hotbeds of sedition during the war. They are the Non-' partisan league states of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. The charges were merely a part of malicious, old-line politics, and the officers of the Red Cross de serve some criticism for not defend-, ing these states at the time the polit ical slander and thuggery was going Ott. The regular membership drive is not a part of the special fund work and will be conducted as usual in these four states in the near future. Much attention is being given to the probable demand for the prod ucts of the farmers of the northwest in the coming year, that is, for the 1920 crops and meat products The war multiplied the market abroad several times It would lok as if farmer prosperity depended on this European demand Europe, however, is likely to get hack to producing a good deal of its t wn stuff and ships will be available for bringing wheat, corn, beef, mut ton, etc., from cur rivals, Australia and Argentina. On the surface, at Ilear't. future conditions appear to be ,'gainst the northwest farmers -un less some vital changes can be made in the methods of sending their pro dut" to Europe. Development of a real waterway via the Great Lakes, rail transports tion at cost, ocean transportation at cost, diversion of the port handling fromn such monopolized centers as New York, government marketing from the farmer to the European buyer would tend to offset some of the handicaps. Probably few farmers of the north west fully realize the extent to which they were losing the foreign market prior to the recent war. In the av erage year, 1897-1901. we exported 197,427,246 bushels of wheat; in 1.911 only 69,311,760, and in 1912 only 79.689,404. In the average year, 1897-1901, we exported 637,268,235 pounds of beef products; in 1911, 265,923,98S3 pounds, and in 1912 only 233,924,626 pounds. In the average year. 1897-1901, we exported 192. 531.378 pounds of pork products; in 1911 only 65,614,522 pounds, and in 1912 only 41,797,291. Here are startling figures of market loss. In tile last three years of unusual effort. to feed Europe we did not, send out as much as we normally did in the decade. 1890 to 1900. They repre sent what monopolized marketing has done for the northwest farmers in the foreign market. One of the two great strikes which have been attracting world attention has been settled. By concessions on both sides the striking railway men and the government in England have come to an agreement. Our own steel strike hangs on because the steel magnates think they have a chance of knocking out union labor. Profits have been so great inl our steel industry that the plants ran stand suspension of industry for a long time. Thlie steel magnates have a;so lined up the supposed neutral officers of the law on their side to an extent that belies our civiliza lion. llore than this. the steel cotm panies are allowed to maintain pri vate policemen who assume functions of officers of the law and whose bloody activity is never called into question. Our strike, consequetnly, has been marked by much bloodshed. ite turned soldiers, women and defense less workers have been shot while standing peaceably in public places. If we want an explanation of why England got through a more serious strike with no bloodshed and why union labor there was met half way, whereas here the employers will not talk with the labor leaders, we can probably find it in the political pow er of English labor. The labor party, is the second party in England. It has a good chance of becoming the leading party at the next election. Lloyd George and the special in terest see conciliation as the only way out. So there are no private gun men; officers of the law keep the neace ilnpartially; there is no riot ing, and employers get off their high horses enouigh to talk things over. Here is a .,ri-at lesson for farmers and workers in Amreica. A little real power seclurvdl through independent political aclion is worth mnore than 10 miles of b, llv-crawling or the licking of innumerra!ie polished boots. The latest F'iutnm fuss, wherein a long-haired poet leading a mutinous army take. 1sssiessiotn of the place is only a ,ilnest in the diplomatic teapot. It woilld be a mistake for or dinary (ortul:; to 'regatd it as more importan; thanII the diplomats do.

CAPITALISTS about the glory of the Italian spirit.) The need for this sort of thing is so great in Italy that there is good reason for believing it was done with the connivance of the Italian govern ment if not with that of diplomats at Paris. No allied government wants a revolution in Italy. The hints that D'Annunzio, the pot., may lead a possible revolution, appearing in the city press. are absurd. He is one of the most extreme supporters of mili tarism and Tory government. The taking of Flume violates our acknowledged principles of interna Lional justice, but England, France and Japan. who have taken so much with less justification. can hardly, protest vigorously. Houston, Texas, furnishes us with a good profiteer story. It all started with a felony case brought against ai negro porter for stealing a suit of clothes valued by the merchant at $65. At least this was the price the retailer sold it for and the sum was $15 over the amount needed to make the alleged act a felony. At the suggestion of his lawyer, the negro, instead of denying guilt, submitted the price tag from the stolen suit and showed that the strange marks under the price mark indicated a cost price of $22. When the merchant learned of this defense he rushed over to the district attor ney and had the whole case thrown out. He thus became an accessory after the fact in a tllisdetllmanor case rather thtan risk the light on his own business. Most of us have little dif ficulty in agreeing that the unwill ing defender of the thief was a great er thief than the principal. Use the Classified Columns of I THE DAILY BULLETIN LEGAL NOTICES.

Arizona st. 26, 1838, when Grace Darling was 22 years old, a wintry gale drove down on the Farne Islands. Before night time the sea ran mountains high The steamer Forfarshire, bound for Dundee, went on a rock a mile from the Longstone light. She began to break up. Through the glass the lighthouse keeper could see the waves lift her and dash her again on the rock-could see the horror of her passengers and crew in the shrowds and clinging to wreckage. He shrank from going to their aid in the appalling sea. He refused to put off. Grace Darling knelt at his feet-implored--persuaded, and the father yielded. The mother helped shove off the boat, and father and daughter, each at an oar, rowed through the tempest of waters, in danger of being engulfed every sec ond. They reached the wreck; got nine of the naked survivors into the boat, and rowed back to the Long stone light. When the news travelled over England, testimonials, medals, purses, were heaped upon the darling girl-Grace Darling. But she never left the beloved island, and died of consumption--a cold contracted on Ihat fearful night--on Oct. 20, 1842. WANTS I)AMAGES.
