Mostana will be in elegant trim, so far a newspaper equipment is con cerned. when the good old ship sails in to the port of statehood. It may be safely claimed that no state ever en tered the Union with a better news paper repreentation than this territory can boast. Iutte has its two dailies establised yearsago--The Iaer-Montrun, dlstin gulshed for the sturdy strength of its able editorial page, and the Murer, which bas ust enlarged its borders and streughtened its staff, in order to take the rank to which it is entitled in the new order of things. Itelena has eared for itself in the realm of journalism. It has the Irndkpeudeut under the man agement of Mr. Lyman. who has rapidly pushed that newspaper to a place of commanding prominence, and the Jour sel, which is almost as young as the NTAxDAnb, but whclh under the man agement of Mr. Qulgg is acting just like a veteran in political warefare and building up a merited eonstituency in thorough western style. Then there are the successful dailies in other towns in the territory, back of which are more excellent weeklies than can be found in any quarter of the United tates, taking territory, population and sur roundings into account. The wonder is that so many newspa pers of merit are able to make their business of1mes meet the demands of press and composing rooms; yet they do it, and the fact that the territory has so many prosperous newspapers is the highest possible tribute to the thrift and Intelligence of its people. The time is rapidly approaching when the eit saens of Montana can have the world's news at the breakfast table, without waiting for the arrival of newspapers printed in far distant eities. ly the way, you get the Anaconda MITANuAn for a dollar a month. EXIT TANNER. Poor Tanner, the Idol of pension grabbers and demigod of spollamen ! His reign is ended. )lspatohes from Washingtou agree that one cause of his retirement was his remarkable gift of gab. and his Indiscreet utterances whlih have helped to bring this admin istration into disrepute. What Tanner lacks in legs, he more than made good at the other end of his body. lie started off with the avowed intention of knocking the surplus galley west. With a sickening thud he struck the stone wall of public opinion, and lies a shattered idol: the fallen hero of the tricksters. Flying was comparatively easy for Tanner. But like larius Greene of old, his flight ended disastrously. Iis recent junketing tour, during which he took occasion to air some of his re markable ideas regarding pension olice affairs, was a fitting prelude to the downfall of the man who tried to "bust the surplus." In connection with the retirement of Corporai Tanner comes the startling intelligence of Presldent larrison's discovery that (leneral tosecranus is drawing two salaries from the govern mient, one as registry of thw treasury. the other as retired brigadier general of the army. Truly. here's a state of things. lnut tlen, we grumblers should not be too unnreasonable. The 'resl dent may make more Interesting dis coveries in time. And then. too, he has been kept pretty busy of late look ing after the interests of the Ilarrison tribe. It's an even chance that John L. Sul livan will go to congress it he gets into the right sort of constitwency in New York city. John Morrissey went to Washington. years ago, his chief title to distinction being his prize-ring record and the excellence of the lunch served in his poker rooms at Maratoga. lie was a better man in Washington than many a gloved representative in con gress. Sullivan might score a victory in polities. We doubt it. of course, yet we would not be surprised to see him sent to the capital to try it on. Elsewhere appears, in this morning's STANDARD, an interview purporting to give Sullivan's views on leading public questions. It is a shady column of stuff, yet we assume that it is as much in earnest as the authorities of Louis lana were in their pretended efforts to bring Sullivan within the clutches of the law. The )rTAwARD prints with mis ivings a dispatch sent out from Mil waukee whlich assumes to disclose a gigantic political scheme lately uncov ered in that city, the purport of which is that Washington and Montana are to be made solidly republiean by the importation of an enormous negro vote. That a movement looking toward a negro exodus like that of eighteen years ago is on foot, will not be ques to t the story that the down trodden amr oming out here to take srwl~l-r'-'k r r w tl .,.gho- 1.maio td m wM r tM -I bmh avow4 mamwomamm 1'i s M a - -oo for ato t tw tmoi .L - pditl mli p rm I . raw of ttw m that emm" be usmmo Nay o hs akisrat or Mme.ir feseer tha r smLey lrn Ialdmrtr day, to anl IMatt s ..d Tb.

DEMOCRATS MONTANA. I HE most important election in which the people were ever called upon to participate is but thirty days off. Never since the organization of the territory has the Democracy been so united or seemingly so in vincible. Our cause is just. our candidates invulnerable, and our victory ought to be certain. There is but one danger to be feared, and that is a failure to register. Let every man that deserves well of the coming state see to it that he is not disfranchised by that vicious and partisan law, which ought to have been entitled "An act to dis franchise the farmers, miners and stockmen of Montana," and which was born of the first republican legislature of Montana. Register, and do so at once, and thus rebuke the party that enacted such a law. Delay is dangerous. In order to vote you must register on before September i5 Let the naturalized citizens of this territory who have been voting unmolested for years, hunt up their papers that they have not seen for ten years. and go to the place of registration and register. and at the same time register a vow to rebuke the political party that puts you to this great in convenience and practically dis franchises you by the absurd pro vision which requires you to pro duce your papers, and in some instances to travel a hundred miles to register before you can exercise the rights of freemen. We ask all who are interested in good government to read the platform of our party. Examine the public and business records of our candidates, pursue and in vestigate them in all their rela tions to the public, to the last and final analysis, and we are confi dent that you will find them worthy Montanians. men who will guard and protect her interests at all hazards. Register and tell your friends to register. MANCUS DALV. L T. HAUKLR. W. A. CLARK, (. A. UIW)ADWATKIL W. W. DIXON, A. J. DAVIDMON. JOHN SCHEINERi. SAML. WORD. WALTER COOPKER WM. PARRERRY.
