Seattle, Oct. 21.-.Tack Mundy, president of the Central Labor coun cil, has extended a novel challenge to Frank Turco, council delegate from the blacksmiths' union. Fol lowing a brief passage-at-arms be tween the two in the progress of a council meeting, Mundy invited Tur co to meet him at any time or place and disrobe in order to determine whose clothing was superior in the matter of union labels. A STATEMENT Editor Daily Bulletin: Certain persons, for reasons which are obvious, are circulating reports to the effect that in the event of my election to the office of sheriff. that I have already selected the various deputies to perform the duties assigned by law to the office of sheriff. In answer to these stories set afloat by emissaries of thei Anaconda company, I desire to say that I have not promised a single appointment and will not until after the election, Nov. 2', when, provid ing a majority of the voters have signified that they want me for sheriff, I will take. the matter of appointments under consideration and will make them with a view to efficiency in the enforcement of all the laws.

PROMINENT MEN OF STATE FOR EDUCATIONAL BONDS To the Voters of Montana: Among the many momentous questions confronting the people of our state is that of continuing a vigorous policy for the upbuilding of our educational system. It has been shown conclusively that the upper grades of our public school system represented by the State Col iversity at Missoula, the State Col lege of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts at Bozeman, the State School of Mines at Butte, and the State Normal college at Dillon are, as a result of insufficient support, in a grave condition. Without increased funds the far-reaching work of these institutions will. be curtailed se riously, and proper educational op portunities denied to hundreds of our capable and ambitious young men and women. Furthermore, the special state schools now caring for the defec tives, the dependents, and the de linquents-the Industrial school at Miles City, the School for Deaf, Blind and Feeble Mindled at Boul der, the Orphans' Home at Twin Bridges, and the Vocational School for .Girls at Helena, must receive additional funds if the state is to do its full duty to these unfortunate children. We, therefore, urge upon the vo ters of the state to give proof of their faith in our free educational institutions by passing at the com ing election initiative measures Nos. To the Women of Montana In previous years we had no or ganizatlon of women. The cause is obviously simple, now, and indi cates the progress made by civiliza Lion. Women have emerged, but recently, from a thraldom which has been theirs for generations. In the old days men fought with clubs and catapults, but now we use the ballot. Women at one time were chi.ttels or worse; they kept the hoi ie fires burning, they bound up the wounds; and helped maintain a crude state. Hers was no glorious task. She did not have the zest of battle or sit at the council of fire; nor was she permitted a part in the glory. Today, under refinling influences, woman has claimed a new place, she today has a crown, and thrice c:rowned is the woman and moth~er who dare venture forth on a cru sade with a blessing. Women of our land have given all which is more precious than life, so that man kind might be safe, and here we The French Labor Congress By MAX WORTH. (Europeam Staff Correspondent for the Federated Press.) Orleans, Sept, 30.-(By Mdail.) The special congress of the General Federation of Labor opened at Or leans on Monday, Sept. 27-exactly three weeks after the opening of the British Trades Union congress at Portsmouth. The French con gress began with a sharp attack by a revolutionary minority, on the Federation and its officers. Since the general strike of last May, there has been a large olement. of discontent with the direction of the federation. This discontent was finally focused in a. "minority move ment" that began with a regional congress in Lyons, and that was continued at similar conferences in Paris, Marseilles, and finally in Or leans. The final .session of the mmi noritarians at Orleans closed on the day before the congress opened. At the Lyons meeting there were about 100 minoritarian delegates. At the Orleans session, there were delegates from 331 local unions; 6 departmental unions (like our state federations), and three industrial federations (like our internation als). The total number of local un ions having delegatesat the con gress of the federation is 2,178; with 68 departmental unions and 35 industrial federations. As yet, there fore, the minqritarian movement is not numerically very strong. It is its existence rather than its strength that makes the situation significant. The final session of n lunorj tarian movement, on Stlay, the 26th of September, passed a 'esolu tion severely censuring the federa tion for its failure to adhere to the priciples of revolutionary syndical isu laid down at the congress of Amiens, According to the Anilens' decisio0 the motion insists "the union must organize and absorb the technicians;l and not be absorbed by them, for fatally, in that case, ýt is no longer the spirit of the worker and the communist that remains predomi nant, but the bourgeois and hier archical spirit of the technicians." The decisions dt Lyons (1919) were clear-cut, asserts the motion, but, in the year that followed the congress of Lyons, "the C. G. T., which should have moved toward the left, has navigated the waters of the right, wholly abandoning di rect action, in principle as welL-as in. method." It is action that the minoritarians" want. They have bad enough of resolutions. It is in revolutionary ac tion, t1e resolution contends, aid, 18 and 19. Thorugh these meas ures the -youth of the state will be guaranteed their inalienable rights to an education. (Signed by), B. K. WHEELER. )Democratic Can. didate for Governor. JOS. M.

Therefore ht has two courses--one, to remain in the federation and carry on propaganda there; the oth er to form a new organization. Moscow has insisted that the com munists remain in the federation: La Vie Ouvriere, organ of the com munists, has taken,this attitude con-. sistently. On the other hand, there is a strong mlovlenllc, particularly in the south, for a new organization. The capitalis+ papers are hailing this sign of division with glee.

Supreme Court Justice Martin Keogh has jest handed down the de cision that the ordinance which gave Mayor Elmer Kincaid the power to arrest three socialists .for holding a strdet meeting was unconstitutionail and void. By tIf;s decision Mrs. Ar thur G.. Hayes, William . Cham bhers and Thomas F. Doyle are freed from custody. The justice reinforced his order 'with a meniorandum statingthat he did not mean by this decision to question the "'right qf the municipal authorities to regulate by rpasonable ordinance the holding of meetings in the streets of the city," he said. "This ordinance is one which puts wholly at the arbitrary deternlina tion of the mayor the matter of free speech and free as~emblage and is therefore in violation of the consti tution of the state of 'New YorkJ-' The case against the three speak ers who attempted to hold an open air meeting under the auspices of the, American Civil Liberties union, Rev.

That the people shall have full liberty publicly to discuss, by speech, wri'tinrg or assemblage, those things which seem of imporrtnce to them as citizens;, (2). That this liberty be used to make their laws and'gov . crnment conformable at all times to the greatest common good. - Not only during the late war, but throughout the preceding years which witnessed the concentration of economic power and resulting diffusion of insecurity and want, the courts have powerfully aided in denying to the people these once unques tioned rights. They have extended protection to property and withheld it from humanity. They have nullified laws the most beneficial to political and economic freedom. They have re stricted the operation of legislation by initiatl.e. They have largely"destroyed the right of free discussion. And finally, they have worked in nearly, every instance to relieve privilege of its just burdens, and to promote the ascendancy of the eco nomic over the political state. We pledge ourselves, if elected, to vote for substantial jus tice between public and private interests, as well as between individuals; to consent to no judgment whereby the legislative or popular will is defeated through hostile interpretaiion or oia unsubstantial grounds; to translate into fact, wherever pos sible, the theoretical equality of all men and classes under the 2 law; arid to respect no precedent conflicting with these prin ciples or arising from a disregard of human rights.
