No decent community was ever af tdeted with libelous journalism morue cowardly in manner or nwasewr in methods than warn exeanplited yester day in tlw editorial columns of tlw Butte I,ter Moue tusise. That in decent nlert, owwted by Mr. Lee Mantle. dare. to asmail repulta ble men in a lIlanller which this newspalwr will Ino longer tolerate and which lsust stop helr aidl now or end by establishing tle clllsaim cither of Mr. Mantle or tholu. whoml hew assail.s, to thw restlwct of honorable mell ill at least two aouuntil. of thisi 'll111111l11I wealth. Onu this Iage is given the full text of what thHe ltitte Inte-r J.oreeterisE hais dared. in tlh impudenlce of unl bridled slander, to way regarding members of tle Montalna democratic central committee. It will be seen how Mr. Mantle insinuates that intlutwlrs of that committee are back of a lpamphlet, soon to be imaued, in which circulation Is to be given to a "cowardly plot to in Ja3e Mr. Power." It pleases this libel oas apology for deeent jounUalism to add that the committee has "no fear of lw and no qualms of conacience," that it "would as soon lie as not," that it ares nothing for ma.body's reputatiou, not even it own," amlthat it is "ever ready to stab any epposlag canlidate in the back." Epithets drawn from the gutter find p)es In the batted drivel whlech the Jfarlwr M ets prolongs to a column. The members of thse central com .a.mee trm asslled by the Inter Neo m s are pretty well known in the Iemmaluty. The active management of the ommnittee's affairs is in the baud of Marcus Daly, e. this elty, .lves Hughes, ase at Ame-mda seed m . W. tap.e tt, ef atta.

Mnlag their utter esatempt for it. IS this mu.h, however, be dis tlutly muderlteod: No eireular or pamphlet remotely related to the matters meuntlmid by the lner M.wet.di was ever priatel or proposed by the democratir central eommittee. No such mmaul on Mr. Power was ever even so mubh a mug gested. The lterr M.atabld distintly Uie when it says that, by authoritative dispatch from. lekna or otherwise, It had Information of any such crcular. No circular of kindred import will be printed and distributed during this ean vam, unless it be done by tIme authority of the I.ter Mount rlN itself; and we Sraise no questionl whatever as to thie Int.r Mllontal u's williagness to lend itself and its conjmosing ronom to just such a plot. It is a strange combinationl of circunstances, indeed, that comupels any newspaper to defend Mr. Italy. Mr. Ilughes and Judge tapletou against the assaults of a ly ing and disreputable press, yet the gen tlemen ask it, lest any voter in the ter ritory should suspect them of complic ity in the outrage which the later MrountaIu charges. TruE lewspaper enCersaums no inoun that the assault made yestecday in the Iuhtte Iter Moeatati was deliberately planned by Mr. Lee Mantle int order to harm Mr. .Power in his canvass. It is ita the plans of the (arter wing of the party to destroy Mr. Power at any oust, snd we do not for a moment question tie readiness of Mr. Mantle and his newspaper to go into some such sch-enw, however closely it bor ders on blackmailing; nor do we ques tion the judgment of the community, in all that concerns decent political metlods, to choose between Mr. Italy with his associates and Mr. Mantle with his /ater Moe estalst. Putting all other issues aside, the ·TAPNIARD proposes to remain to the end of this canvass with the personal isues raised yesterday. We declare that the Inter Mosmrtasl had no authority for its assertions. They were indefen sible falsehoods from first to last and we believe tie Inter Mauftalts knew it when it framed them. We call on that newspaper to make its unwarranLtable assault good or to defend it, to recall its cowardly epithlets or prove that they are merited, to show that Mr. Daly. Mr. lughle and Judge Stapleton are tie scoundrels they are herakled to be or make the apologies die t.'.lecesat gentlemewn. We are not unmindful of time crawl ing complinemnts by whichl twe Ilutte luter Mo uNt#.iu seek to consciliate Mr. Italy. in an editorial which follows the slinking epithets with which it assails him. It must disgust any reputable maus to be tihe object of a prostitute's ao-mplinmlts; it must iusult any uman to be made time object of pleas -at menltion in a wnwspaper so bas. iln its purpose, so contemptible I. its ethods land so outrageous in the de liberation of its false testimony as the Bltte Inter M.outaivn has proven itself to be. -. - . .. - T a" wasr hi t weel rival Iasatrisln nalI agem.na.s dowen ir I Ketusatky sunkes it poe mible for a cousple o get Ileense, .renossy asnd everytblhisg el4r needlful fie of ormt.

Trl party had to do this. because it became clear as tlw light that the only way to save tiw leatlwr industries of thw country from bankruptcy was to let the raw material in without duty.. This action put on its feet an industry which was crowded nearly to the wall. To-day, the Ameri ean market tunis out the best shoes and leather-manufactured goods In the world, exporting these in quantities which a recent trade *Ircular estimates will amount in vaue to more than *I12,OOttiU0 for the current year. The one thing. republeans will not be tempted to db is to restore the tariff on If excellent republican authority in the nswapagsr world is reliabl, we may expoet e. larrison and a repub lican cogress. fMilowing the legislation on lather, to weaken very materially the protection now afforded to wool.

ASSAILED BY HIS FRIENDS. While thew ltte I er-Mewn afo i. delanding Mr. Power agasmt charges which dsimnrats have never brought, the telling tfet remains that the (Carter mawgers are ixing to trade lower right and left. The Wr.cxuAuss referred the other day to a story, tfloated last week., to the eRect that Mr. Power was to pull out. That story did gain currenwy, and rh publicans are the men who started it. the reason beitg tha thte supporters o ('Carter refused to pull true with tle head of the republican ticket. The Hutte lutrr-Mntaetsla woulk better defend its favorite llagailnst feoes in his own household thau to sqmluder its enem.ies in defending him lagainst charges which have never been br.auht by democrats, which will not be brought during the campaign, but whlke the Inter.Mosrta~o earnestly deaires to have brought, in order that the eam paign may be made inodorous and that it may have something to say. Put this wish out of your mind dis trmed neiglbor. lemoerats will uot accept your invitation to inspet Mr. Power's record closely. Ie's whipped sadly enough already. It there is any thing eowardly in this em.ry igFn, it is developed by the shamueless manner in which the Carter wing of time part is putting the cold blade of the knife in unfortunate Mr. Power. Toole will carry Ileaverlwad as he hat carrked it before this. Iie will have a mjority of hundreds in Silver How. without any inquiry into Mr. Power's record. ie will conwe o clone to a round thousand in Ieer Lodge that the shortage will not be worth counting. lie will sweep Miusoula. beca.se the Carter republicans are going to let him do it in hope of profit to('arter. It would pay the Inter em Kd/ti i to leave Mr. Iower's good name in the care and keeping of democrats who will surely defend the gentleman and bundle itself off to lissoula in order to see just how the Carter outfit is trading tiw heed of the ticket tlwre. (f course, that will help Toole. but he doesn't need it. lie is sure of a roulnd six thousanld give hun dred majority to-day. If particulars are wanted for tIh trip we propose. they can be had at the ofice of this newspaper. This would ie straighter work on the part of the republican press than to assail Mr. 'ower's good name by indirection, as the .nter MfmuteIIu does. MORE TROUBLE FOR POLICEMEN. That a politiclan's lot is not the mist joyous oln lunder the sun has again been exemnplitkied in the case of ()Olier Iteisenbe~k, of the twenty-ltfth pe cinct, Plhiladelphia. (Htler Itehiseneck perforamed his duty il a manner en tirely satisfactory to himself, and. as he supposed, to thei city of Philadelphia. It Ie tuook a nip now and thel he per formed thei act with such caution and delicacy that it was never found out; ut least ()ilcer Itelsenbck was never discovered in the act. Ilis breath at times may have been forcible enough to till an unwary citizen coming sud denly around a corner with an uncon trollable desire to lie down. Occasion ally. too, ()Mcer Iteisenbeck may have been prostrated by the heat, or have suffered from nervous exhaustion, or have been a victim of omne other at tack peculiar to policemen according to the returns made to superior officers. lut at any rate ()tker Iteimenbeck's reputation for sobriety andl leg-steadi ness was never questioned by the com tnisaioners, and he tontinued to patrol his beat to tllhe terror of all goats. boot blacks anild snipe-shooters living therein. tlltrra.LU. therefore. lwen he was cited to aplwar Ibfore tiw Imard to answer to charges of uonlldlluct ullln.woolming ani otllcer. In vain lti tilxuted hii memllory for ii tilme wlwin hins clndt was Ihota mo n l of asel and elegan.l . Ii hii own olpinion tw was th.e lilhandso)lit and moitt elegant manl on the force. thle lrlwtual joy and ad niraation of the ladies, an otficer who was never kunown to run or tight or ap pear iln any other attitude inconsistent with his illnaate grace and dignity. His trial calne off last Wenotnlm lday, wlhn tIhe speciications were read to him. namnely that "we neglected his duty inI order to indulge in his flirting propen siti e with young ladies on his beat." Witlesses were sworn, and (Oileer Itwleenbeck was found guilty and dis missed from the force. This curtailment of what has always been regarded as a policeman's peculiar rights and privi leges. the only perquisites of his olBe in fact remaining, will render his lot well-nigh unbearable. If never before the policeman is now an object of unl versal pity and compassion. And what is to become of the cook, the chamber maid and the pretty waitress Y Mr. Power's recent visit to Anaconda was conspicuous for its brevity. In a social way, Anaconda takes pleasuie in meeting Mr. Power. ie is one of those genial gentlemen whom our qeople de light to honor, and he may be sure that he is always a welcome guest. Of course, the city may have its preferesnes in matters political- -but Mr. Power wllB understand that. Anaronda is nothing it not hospitable.

But opes war far is distasteful to the demcncmat partyr, and knowing that It could surstla no chasygs against Mr. Power, and fe.r iha that the mend bulletb* aimed at that gentklean would he norev likely to be daub Mr. Nam Heimutr, the IaadlpeSqA aped the silence of tne opter asd viie tualy confomaed that it could bring noth inl to bear against Thomas C. Power which it dare puhblis or for which It dare accept the r spoanlbility. uot the territorial central deanorerae eosunanttee, ncat heing a erporation and having no legal responsiblity as a whole, has no fear of the law aad no qualhs of mons'ience. It would as seos lie as not. It has no respect for the Efc, of hitory. It cares nothing for anybody's repute tion, not even its own. It Is ever ready to stab any opposhi candidate la the bark. For these reasom it has runde taken what the I.depeasdat dared not un dertake, i. e., the circulation of ampaign slanders re.lecting on te business lateg ilty of Thomas C. Power. But the deno eratic comnanrtte is as canaious as it is un principled and as cowardly as it i infamn ousm. It ba causeed to be printed in Hel ena several carloads of pamphlets recitin8 what purports to he the facts in connec tion with some Indian contracts years ago, in which Mr. Power, Samr Hauserad others were Interested. An examination of this pampiet shows that it is an anoMg naoma libel as far as Mr. Power is codweited. The aMre Is which it was published has not dared toafls its imprint for fear of prosecution. The amen who have compiled the pamnphlet have not al lowed their names to he used for fear of the penitentiary and one of them at least ought to he il the penitentiary for crines he has cmumitted in teatb erling his own nest at the expense of the United ntates gover. ment. This paei plhet eas not yet been circulated. With devlish nmalign ity iis heing kept till near the end of the casnpaign so that there will he no time left to refute the slander it cotalins. Thea it will he spread broadcast by the vultures of the demioratic comnueittee, and even the In deprudre nmay he inspired to give it in dorscmsent,which it has not done and dare not do at present. The demknorati roena mitteemten nay he surprised that their dastardly and cowardly plot to blast the reputation of an honest man on the eve of an electio.a, whe proper means mi nit he impossible to guard against the fangs of theme slimy serpents, have been dis covered and exposed. asid their pseean thens will he nultiplied to conceal relpnaibllity for the publishing of this infanmous pamphlet. But we invite then to send It out; we dare theb to do their worst, only we want thmen to eoane out aind fight in the open and with weap ses which onorable mn nmay use, not by meanns of snmnayuua eirculars contain itg petty slanders and exploded lies, and sent through the nmals a day or two he fare the electioU. This method of warfare mnacks too much of nurder and assina tdon and the mnethods of stink-pot throwere to be cuanltensaneed by decent men of any political party. If the harges contaioned in these pamphlets were true they would have been preferred a mnonth ago. Yet our esteemed (coten porary, the Miser, has not yet adverted to thetr, and even the Idrpe.adrst, partisan as it is, has landulged only in indefinite al lusions to the subject, being restrained either by its consolence or by the fear of the tw-pro-paly the latter. And now if the democratic leaders want a little life infused into this campaign let thetna cone out with their cowardly and libelous circular. PUT IN GOOD SHAPE. A good deal of political sky is cleared when pending issues are discussed in the spirit that governed those who ad dressed the voters of Anaconda Matur day night. t(h that occasion, Judge Dixon usned impressive speech to show that, under long years of democratic as cesdency, Montana has been prosper ous, its laws wisely administered. its property protected. and its taxes kept down. lie explained how repub licans. when they accidentally came into power passed the iniquitous regis tration law which was designed to be partisan, created useless oftes, raised the fees of county oiwers and refused to pass a memorial asking for Mon tana's admission to the union. Judge Dixon characterized Mr. ('arter as a clever man of some ability, but with no experience in public affairs. Nothing in his career, he said, shows a special titness for the office to which he aspires. lie rode into office on a tidal wave. lls opponent is an old, tried and true democrat, thoroughly expe rienced at Washington, Major Magin nis. Mr. Power s a man devoted at all times to the aceeumulation of wealth. In this he has been succeasful. But he has had no experience, and there l- no reason why his friends should think that he po-eses the ability requsite to the olce for which he is a eandl date. Judge Dixon thought that Power had four times as much money as all the candidates on the demoeratic ticket conbined. The rlyal candidates for congres sional honors have never been more honestly presented than they are in Judge Dixon's crisp comments.
