One year, in advance ..............I.d iam months...................... 1.. t single copies........ ......... O TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 2., 1899. MONTANA Is I.OYAL. Besides being loyal to the flag and fighting like heroes, the First Montana regiment is also loyal to President Mc. Kinley and the policy of the adnlulnis tration in the Philippines. It believes, too, that General Otis has done all that any commander could do, and the dem ocratic papers of this state, which have been so quick to publish any adverse criticisms they could gather of Pnrsi dent McKinley and General Otis, should print what Col. H. C. Kessler and his officers aid menl have to say in interviews in the Butte Inter Mountain of last Saturday. But these denmocrntic papers will do noithing of the kind. They are determiuned to oppose and misrepresent the administration, what. ever it does. It is gratifying, however, to be able to give the lie direct to these false and slanderous rsports about the incompetency of General Otis and the policy of the administration in the Philippines. Montaniuns will take the word of her own people ou this subject. Read what Col. Kessler and his officers and men have to say: Col. H. C. Kessler-The generals in the field arte thoroughly competent to crush the Filipinos but, as I stated this afternoon, I think General Otis has too great a burden in directing hoth the field operations and administering in. ternal affairs I say this in no spirit of unfriendly criticism, for I believe him to be a most capable commander in either position, but combined these seem to be physically beyond one man'R endurance. Major and Surgeon J. F.JAdi-nis Uenleral Otis hirs displayed the highest skill in the mlanagement of the c.rn. paigu, The two big battles were plan. ned by the commanding general and but for tlh failure of General Wheaton Marob 25th, at lzlonmo, to follow the plan laid down they would have doubt. less ended the campaign. There is not a man in the United States army who is better qualified to conduct both civil and military affairs in the islands than General Otis. There may be better fighting generals, but there is no one man who can attend to both ends like he can." First Lieutenant and Adjutant W. B. 'Knowlton.-I think they are too hard on General Otis. He has more work thian three ment ought to try to do and lie has not enough troops. I see no ground for honest criticism. Captain John Hallahan, Company M.-lhe war in the Philippines is a battle of civilisation against anarchy and time will prove the correctness of President McKinley's policy. In the meantime the only thing patriotic Americans can do is to hold up the hands of the adnministration. The war is certainly a just one and should be carried to a finish. With the new regi. meats and plenty of cavalry the rebel. lion can soon he put down. With plenty of men General Otis could have finished the job long ago. With the resources at his command I don't see how any man could have done better. The islands will prove it very valuable acqluisition.

The war was broughtllt on h ouuning naisrepresentation. Agulnaldi does not ropresent the natives. Private R. J. Ryau, Comllpany K. think Presidnet McKinley's policy it right. The Americans are entitled to hold the islands. Sergeant J. F. Johnson, Company H. -The islands are worth holding and should be held. I believe when the new campaign opens with an adequate force of men the insurrection will soon be crushed. Only lack of troops line prevented Otis from ending the war, Private Elmner Greenleaf, Company H.-I don't wanit to give the islands up now that the natives have jumped Private (4eorge D. Brown, Company K.--We should hold the Philippines at any cost. Nearly all the Montaun men want to keep the islands. Corporal B. A. Green, Company H. I believe in flghting the rebels to a lnilsh nud in holding the Philippines. There's noting else to do. U IHaOLI THl IPI'IIINIlImNT. The Nebralska republicans, in state couventiou last IFriday, adoptent these ringing resolutions regarding the war in the Philippines: "While we deplore the insurrection in the Philippine islands, yet we recolnise the duties and obligatious imposed upon our nlation by the victory of our navy land the miatclh. less valor of our arms, resultliing Is the treaty of Paris, which imposed upon the president the duty of maintaining the authority of the United States over the territory acquired, thereby and so long as ther is one gun pointed at ani Americanu soldllr, so long is there is InI ariterd tuney asnrUilting our ftlg, No long mnlust ptriotic and loyal Alneri. cans uphold our presidenlt in fflecting protection, tlanquility iand peace to all whio recognule our lawful ocnupatioti." The Massachusetts democrats held their state convention last Thursday, whichl almost broke up in a row, but George Fred Williams curried the day and is the head of the delegation to the next national convention. The con. gressional districts were practically disfranchised in tie matter of electing national convention delegates, the same belug selected by the state central com. mittee. But that was the only way the delegation could be secured for Bryan, although the row precipitated insures ai increased majority for the republlan presidential nominee. Mass. achusetts is the first state lu the Union to elect delegates to either of the na. tioual conventions next year. z eeItzorUy Ii auuueeI IncIUR NrnlUuIIU lllu('llceNur tbee bootia of Coloiieel Kteumlo? b for the, rojiublicia, glubetsuittorlel uIowi.l tuitionl, 'which would iitdicutce that ox. * Senator Lee Maittle ii not ii cuoldidat.
