The great city of Butte, the metropoa lie of Montana and the home of several millionaires, has started a movement o raise $80,000 by popular subsarip. Ston, whiobh wit. use ed in hiring a special train to bring the Montana reg. mieat home after it lanud and is mum. tered out at San Francisco. The plan is Ope that is beung tried by several staMte, which wish to show their appre. ,iation of the bravery and patriotism of their soldier boys. The Nebraska and Pennsylvania regiments seached home this week via the special train plan and in this way were saved no little sum in car fare, wbich will come in bandy to the soldier boys, who find themselves ui need of every cent whicbl they have received from the govern. ment. Butte is going this alone. Its oiti. aen- do not want help from other sources, but iC does not exclude other oiSles from sending committees to at. tend and take part in the reception to be tendered the regiment, It seenms as though Butte was acting rather selfish in the matter, but its motive is a good' one and the state at large will wish the oity sueceme in its movement. An esteemed democratic countempor ary states that "It takes a republicar tariff taxer to curse Germany for layin: a prohibitive tariff oun American manl factured goods." The American people are not, at all averse to Germany o0 any other countries placing as high " duty on imported goods as they desire, even to the point of prohibition if they wish. The only objection this country has ever made to Germany's regula. tious was wihen sl.e had made theta espeolally relate to American product.s requiring such investigatiouns, inspe tibous, etc., with accompanying fees and ohargea that the profits to Amerl can goods were either consumed or the goods spoiled before they could get t( the consumer. As far as a straighi tariff ia conterned, we are amply abli to take care of ourselves, and in our ex portations to compete with any country in the world. As a matter of factt Germany wants our products and equit able arrangements are now being eon tered into between the two govern ments, Nebraska Stato Journal: The sum, mons of John B, Welcome of Butte be. fore the suprenme court of Montauna tc answer to charges calling fcr his di. barment will not be welcome news to Selator W, A.

When th sea. ate convenes it is promised th the matter will be investigated, even the faats do iot come out in this Mo tana inquiry, The public would like lee the senator either cleared definit y or driven in disgrace out of the no itol. It is unpleasant to feel i suspidi all the tillte tIatr his sult wra a ured through unblushing bhiboly, the early days of nsoute of the mtiniu states that sort of thing was too co mon to cause much remark, hut the u utry is steadily galuninu in political morality and the people will no l ner allow offices to be houghtl like nt estate or vitation to all cities that are to shut up shop futy fair Sept, Northern PA. and after you I be enough amrused for et, There races and will be oath to ke 0ot An exchange commenting editorially on the increased Ainsessmest for this state says: In Montana the grand as sessment roll was not large enough to meet the expenses of the state. The board of equalisation did not sit around wondering what to do, but promptly made a horizontal increase in the assess. ment of every county and the trouble was over. When revenue difficuldes arise, as they often do in western states a wise and courageous board of asses-. went may do the public an invaluable service, The latest news from Oarbonado is to the effect that work was resumed in the coal mines at that place last week. For several weeks there has been no little amount of uncertainty as to the future of the mines, but it Is now said that unah circumstances exist no longer. The people of Carbonado are jubliant and they have perfect reason to be. The oltlaens of Butte will not only have the hearty thanks of the boys of the Montana regiment,but those of rol. atives and friends of the boys also, if they succeed in raising the $80,000 to bring the boys home from tan Fran. clsco in a special train. No lonauer do you hear the inquiry : "Have you s:+ee the General-Prosper ity?" The evidences are too plain to need qestiouing. This does not apply to any one locality, but is general all over this country, Billings continues to show its super iority in all things, The latest Is in baseball circles. Two games out of a series of three ware won froim the Hel ean team, which WAS the best in the state. Here's three cheers and a tiger to the Billings baseball club! THE PRESIDENT'S POLICY. There I, Moe iW Lovree li. Ou (~mllltl Oiy and Oti lairw. Ocean Grove, August 2,-.-Presidcut McKinley in an addrens this afternoon said: "I believe there is more love for our dountry and that pepple love the flag more than ever before. Whenever the floa in raised it nlands for freedom, not despotism and oppression, but for liberty, opportnuity anid humanity, iand what the flag has done for us, we want it to do for all people and all lands, which by the fortunes of war have come within its jurisdiction. The flag does not mean one thing in the United States and another in Porto Rico and the Philippines. "There has been sonme doubt in some quarters respeating the present policy of the government in the Philippines. Peace first, and then with charity for all, an established government of ,lAw and order, protecting life and property, and occupation for the we)l.being of the people who will partcilpate under the stars and stripes," O31010 LOOR1SI4 UI'. o40l Otllllnpey ,rverrun with Orders Kiae.tinr, New Hhlldlniag. The increuag of business of the Clarke's Fork Coal Mining company l, some thing wr'oderful says the Carbon County Sentiq',i, The railroad company is rushi.jg in oars as fast as it can get tbe-,i to the tipple at Gebo. The la.fgest number of cars brought in this Weekl ninueteen on Tuesday and the 'larglet number of loaded coal oarn taken out is thirteen, on Monday. The largest order received in one day was sixty-nine ears. Thus it is that the business of the comjany is growing faster than the entry work can be push. ed, though a day and night force in kept at work. The nigbt gang in kept at entry work, while the day force is getting out the coal, The management of the company, seeing the necessity of getting into the mine a very much increased force of miners, is forced to build quarters for the employee, together with a large company boarding house. These two linl of enterpriso had been loft open for private entorprise, but as the une. cessity Is inlmmediate and no one bha Jeen fit to embark in the venture tile maungement, against its wishes, has had to make this departure and under. take the erection of buildings for the housing and care of the hundreds of luners that will soon be employed and who cannot be attracted here till there are proper ncoounmodations for the working men. The outlook for the future of the camp and for the coal company is most prom ilung, The Northern Paoific road is so well satisfled with the coal from the Gebo mine that the company will have t steady buliness from that market and the coal for domestic purposes in Helena and Butte is growing in such favor that even now the company in for behind with the orders from their representan iveor at those large market centers. The growth and snecess of the Olarke's Fork Coal Mininulg company' saterprise ansures the development of the town that has grown up, substaun tinly and without any boom, at this point. One of the new buildings which the oempauy will conutruct immediately will be a commodlous boarding and lodging huows for miners, The mau~ gaenieut i. on the outlook for an eaer, iltlo I.an to rent and operate the Tb.e SombOlei over the oapltol build.
