Don'tthink that because sub^^scriptions are coming in so fast that^we might get too many. Not so;^we need more, and more until every^debt is paid off, the best of machin^^es enstalled, the leading talent on^the editorial staff employed, and the^best Socialist paper in the north^west.
Itis impossible for us this week^to insert all of the names of new^subscribers and those who have^paid since our last issue. In fact^they have never come so fast since^the establishment of the News. Mr.^Lynch, the traveling solicitor, left^here Friday of last week loaded^with subscription cards good for a^yearly subscription to the News,^and already the cards are beginning^to arrive, and it looks as if with^the hustle of this aggressive indefati^^gable worker that the News would^soon spring into a large state circu^^lation. Evidently the campaiga is^opening up and from now on will^lie a continual round of energetic^.. :i'. iOI 1 ^^ r!-'.

BarneyHedigan and Francis^Biglen were tried before police judge^McFarland on the charge of killing^horses, the property of Jim Anderson^of Gilt Kdge.

Hedigan and Biglen were^bound over to the district court and^are admitted to bail in the sum of^% 1500 each. Jim. Weaver, Barney^McDonnell, Rice Dougherty ar;d^some other parties are on the bail.
Thefusion redemocan officials of^this city have taken a page from the^history of the dark ages; the bar^barians of those days placed men in^the stocks and the redemocan bar^^barians of Lewistown have shackled^a man to an iron ball and placed^him at the fire tower to break rock.^The prisoner is James Blake a lab^^orer who came to Lewistown lately^from Great Falls. He was charged^with being drunk and was fined sev^^en dollars and fifty cents; he did not^pay the fine so is shackled on the^street to work it out. Possibly^Blake is guilty of drunkeness, but^this does not justify ^fools dressed^in brief authority^ overiding the^rights of the citizen and introducing^in the twentieth century practices^common in the days of the imjuisi^I tion. If the city administration de^^sire to permanently adopt this bar-^barons custom, let them send and^get about one hundred shackle*;; so^they can place on the rock pile, the^rounders, tinhorns, secretaries and^certain worthy members of the citi^^zens alliance who gcX drunk and all^such spawn of a rotten system that^infests Lewistown. Many of the^preceeding named people, not alone^break simple ordinances governing^drunkeness, but are criminals who^violate the state law. Our fusionists^will uot act on our suggestion it^would be simple justice, as it is the^votes of this criminal class gives^them the majority and enables them^.0 retain power.

ThomasMcDonough was discov^^ered dead in his cabin about a mile^below (iilt Fdge on last Saturday.^It is presumed that the diseased died^from heart disease. McDonough^was well known in the Baker dis^^trict, he came to this section about^11 years ago. As McDonough was a^veteran of the civil war, the funeral^was conducted by the old soldiers^of Fergus county. Services were held^at tne Presbyterian church at 2^p. m.
Rockcandy syrup at Lehman's.^Shackleville otherwise Lewistown^has an unenviable reputation among^the people of Montana as a scab^loving bttrg. Now to cap the cli^^max Blake is shackled to a ball for^the petty offense of drunkeness,^while well dressed criminals strut^out streets. Every niemtier of the^council is guilty of this outrage,^j but for enthusiastic ferocity marshall^j Bebb easily leads; the sulphurous^I vaporing of this man on all who^I showed kindness to the prisoner is^i ridiculous. Workingmen you have^voted for this, as you have *otcdfor^bull pens, bayonets and lockouts by^! voting the democrat and republican^^ tickets composed of capitalists or^'the satelites of that favored class.
