The Tribune is in receipt of a letter from I.
M. Brandjord of Missoula, calling our attention
to an amendment to the constitution to be voted
on Tuesday. It is designed to gradually in
crease the endowment of the common schools of
the state by saving five per cent of their income
and adding it year by year to the principal sum
of the endowment. The matter is important
enough to justify consideration at the hands of
the voters. We print the appeal of Mr. Brand
jord as follows:
"Briefly stated, this proposed amendment to
section five of article eleven of our state consti
tution makes three distinct and important
changes in regard to the use and appoitionment
of the income from the school funds of the state.
It provides, in effect, that all income whatsoevei
from the school funds of the state shall accrue
to the benefit of the schools ; that five per cent
of such income shall annually be added to the
fund itself and become an inseparable part
thereof, and that the balance shall be apportion
ed to the school districts that maintain at least
six months of school during the year.
"Under the constitution as originally written
it seemed permissible to use the interest on
school funds on deposit in banks throughout the
state for other than school purposes. Accoiding
to figures furnished by the office of the state
treasurer, this interest amounted to $34,126.73
in one single year. This amount was not used
for the maintenance of our schools; it was cov
ered into the state general fund. Assuming that
this interest, and all other income from the
state school funds, is a sacred heritage which of
right belongs to our children and children s cniî
dren, this amendment is so drawn that no such
diversion of any part of the income 1rom the
school funds can lawfully be made.
"Under the constitution as originally written,
no provision was made for adding part of the
annual income from the school funds to the
funds the funds themselves. All the income was
disbursed for some purpose. This amendment
provides that five per cent of such annual in
come shall be added to the funds. In other
words, the amendment provides for the slow but
perpetual growth of the funds itself. It is not
a modern attempt to enrich the present by mort
gaging the futuz*e ; it is an old fashioned attempt
to enrich both the present and the fture by sav
ing a little from day to day.
"If this amendment is adopted, as it no doubt
will be. and if it is allowed to remain as a part
.if our constitution, the time should ultimately
m me when this fund would be so large that the
available income there from would take care of
our common school running expenses. It will
take a long time. But would it not be a source
of considerable satisfaction to know that this
great public fund is constantly and perpetually
"The third change provided by the amendment
is to the effect that a school district must main
tain at least six months of school during the
year in order to be entitled to share the income
from this fund. The previous requirement was
only three months. Every child in the great
state of Montana is entitled to receive at least
six months schooling during the year.
Tomorrow is election day. The campaign is
over. Tuesday night we can deal with facts in
stead of guesses. But in this last word to the
voter we appeal to them to vote their national
ticket and congressional ticket straight. It is
to our mind not only foolish, but it is almost
wicked to vote for one party candidate ffor
president and a different party candidate for
congress. In national affairs we can hardly con
ceive of a more deplorable result than the elec
tion of Messrs. Cox and Roosevelt to the offices
of president and vice president, and at the same
time elect a Republican congress to tie their
hands so that they can do nothing in the way
of carrying out their policies. We have been
in just that situation for two years. The read
er must realize the evil consequences of it.
Therefore, we urge on our readers who have
made up their minds to vote for a Democratic
president that they also vote for McCusker for
Congress from this district because he is pledged
to support the policies that Mr. Cox stands for.
On the other hand if you are going to vote for
a Republican president we advise you to vote
for a Republican congressman.
We think this argument outweighs even the
question of personal character and fitness for
the office, but if it does not in the minds of our
readers, we are ready to say that we regard Mr.
McCusker as possessing superior personal char
acteristics to those held by his opponent. He is
at least frank and above board. He does not
believe in bluff, bluster and deception as a means
of getting votes. That can hardly be said of
Carl Riddick. Mr. Riddick has sought to claim
the credit for pretty much eyerything that Sen
ator Walsh or Senator Myers hay been able to
accomplish at Washington. He has extended
his claims to embrace the things done by out
side senators, governors and public men. In
fact, he has certainly worked the publicity bunk
to a frazzle regardless of facts or modesty or
veracity. And if he has really accomplished any
thing in the way of beneficial legislation, we do
not recall it at this moment. Here is a list of
the bills he has introduced in the house as print
ed in the Helena Independent, and vouched for
by that newspaper. We have not the means to
check the list ourselves, but it certainly makes
a remarkable showing of nothing done:

In our opinion the only vote for a Democrat
in this congressional district is a vote for Mc
Cusker. It is also our opinion that it is a vote
for the better of man of the two.
There are a lot; of referendum votes called for
this year at the polls—too many of them. If a
voters stops to study them all out it. will take a
good many minutes to mark his ballot. So far
as we have been able to study them out we do
not find any that meets with our disapproval.
One of them, No. 14 deals with boxing and pro
poses to legalize public exhibitions of boxing un
der certain conditions. There may be and prob
ably is some difference of opinion regarding its
merits. Three of them are amendments to the
primary election law. We hope they will all
get a cross in front of the "Yes." Three of them
authorize bond issues. They are all three wor
thy measures and deserve support. In fact we
do not see that the voter could go far wrong if
he voted "yes" on all the referendum measures.
A good many voters will doubtless not vote at
all on these referendum measures. Many have
studied them and know just how they want to
vote on them. Others have not, and it is for
their benefit that we say that we do not find
any of them to be so obnoxious that theiy pass
for the better man of the two.

the "supposedly impossible are grouped j
into a corporation with headquarters here j
in Boston. They have the biggest fleet ;
of steam trawlers oti the coast, and they ,
elnim to be the foremost progressives |
of the fishing business. They aim to j
see the haddock and the cod "delivered j
regularly all over the country from the
Mexican' border to the plains .ot the lia
kotas, and to make fresh fish as famil
iar an article of food as beef.
Here, they say. is the ocean, full of
fish—millions of them, and more edible
kinds than the average American ever
heard of—and the United States has
been taking from all its waters combined
a trifling two billion pounds a year.
Hut now those fish, who have been j
living idle lives and dying without any \
mission accomplished, "and those land-j
lubbers who have never taken fiph ser- j
iously, are about to be brought together.
Advertising is going to do it, and money.,
and a corporation that is determined to
take some of the antique romance out of
fishing aud inject a good deal of twen
tietli century standardization.
Most important of all is the new pro
cess bv which the fish can he trans

ket does not have to be especially -
ated, but that the demand for frl V h J 1

varieties will fully equal the supply tue

A single incident is mentioned b> a
representative of the company to show
the eagerness with which the towns tar

would seem that the general public will

familiar to New England. Otherwise

Fish Needs Press-Agents
If the corporation expects to develop
earlv curiosity into a large and steady
demand for its products, it will undoubt
edlv have to put across an intensive
course of public education, including
street-car cards, billboards, magazine
pictorials, and all the other methods of
driving in the facts in order to convince
everybody that t/hc superlative merits
of fish cannot be ignored.,
gastronomic history of the United* States j
has not so far shown us to be a race of j
fish-eaters. The coasts have not con- '

food the fishermen could catch, and back :

The insignificance ot our achievements ,
in eating fish is not noticeable from tnis 1
until you compare our record with those j
of other seacoast countries. In England !
the average person eats 100 pounds a I
year: in Norway and Sweden, 130 i

It is true that our average would he j
much more creditable if we counted only j
the area in this country over which it
has been possible to transport fresh
fish, as practically all parts of these j
other countries are reasonably accessible ]
to fishing ports. An average of only j
half a pound of fish is eaten by persons
in some parts of this country, and this
offsets the comparatively large amount
consumed in the real fish-eating districts,
