And we cer.aily tare needing soenl sort of thinking, pushing leav\,n in the minds of American workers. We do not know that so much fuss over just the right to ex ercise one's lungs on the street ai worth the while. Just talk ing on the street does noee necesarily bring more liberty with it. Liberty must reside in the institutions of hu man living, and these do not come through Just talking. The street talk Ing has been the chief feature of our American propaganda for ten years, and the majority of the locals have done nothing els. -absolutely nothing accomplished in their city effects. The writer has done perhaps as much street work in the last ten years as any speaker in the party, and for a number of years she has seriously questioned in her own mind its per manent efficiency. There are other things that need to be done to help tht working class besides barking on the street.

Frinke, former mayor of Anaconda. ended fatally. Not long ago-Just a few months ago-in the very prime of \lgorous manhood, he moved among his townsmen, with whom hi had become a familiar fig ure, as one, to whom life and health seemed to he assured for years to come. Hlls rapid decline was deeply regretted; the tidings of his death spread a feeling of profound sorrow over the city. John W1. irinke was as fair and squarel a lman as ever IIved among these mountains. H.e answered that description Iy \''rl test-in impulse, in motive, in conduct. Ils heart was in le riuht Ilic"e, and, what was .jf chi I account along wi\lth that fact, his Jiudlgl tnt was . xc.lle. nt.

When 'Mr. Frlnk. hilumne mayor he moved suddenly Into a n,,w sphere; he found himself amid surroundings and duties and responsiblltles h he was unaccustoued He ed himself admirably. To w th, as an American citizen he wv broad ly Intelligent. And there Ws mtore than that. He wanted the right thing done. He wanted, in all oetaa re lations to do the right thlin; and, In uncommon degree, wit himt the perception of what was right iad just and btest seemed to be like t intul tion.: lie served well, an he did this without thought of pubibMtty or desire for the trumpeting of hbi com mendable offcial acts. He was a man of extreme modesty; reserve, afMount ing fairly in shyness, was a trait that characterized him. In brief, as we well know he would wish words spoken of him, the life f our dead townsman IlIualaes tlui-~ practical proposition: If y0o are In public station, you can go right do wn among those whomn we are acllutoom ed to call "tlhe plain ipeople"---ameni - those not talked about or thou !l about for cif ic responsibility-and i you are fortulnate enough to hit ulp,., a man like John W.

"onley's IacoIs of $00 c OnvetLa. There are thirty-two houses in Deer Lodge that have been built wholly or in part by convict labor and are being rented by Warden Conley for $20.00 .s month. When a representative of Ihe News was in Deer Lodge there were thirty cottages of Conley rented for $20.00, making an income of $600 per month from the product of con vict labor; and It was reported that itf any houses were vacated the rent was to ,he increased to $25.00 a month. Are we in Russia, Mexlte or Montana? What state of affairs is this, that allnows the warden of the penitentiary who is custodian of the state prison ere to work the convicts to create wealth for himself and to compete with wages labor? It is high time that organnized labor was making its power felt and putting an end to such peonag. In the state of Montana. Such abutises grow up under an Ir responsible control of public affairs where the great mass have nothing to say, and know nothing of what is go Ing on. Under such a condition of affairs a man like Conley and his co-consp'ra tors can work both sides of the polit ical pull without much chance of be ing halted unles insurgency brt ~s out in the political ranks. The w,,rl: ere have not yet dared to absert then. selves politically. Query: Why do the people elect Conley Mayor of lher Loldge? SOIALISTS WANT A FARM. A couple of socialists who wish to better their condition would like to lo cate a homestead or get hold of some cheap lad in Idaho, Montana or Wash ington. They would be pleased to hear from any socialist who knows of any good land open for settlemont, and ae willing to pay for the trouble in scr lag the tformatioen.
