SRPTEMBER 6,I US. THEIR SHARPEST EYE. The Helena Jour.al warns its repub lisan followers that "they must keep their sharpest eye on the legslature." This ofcial order accords exactly with What the TlrAxNDA has said since the tenth of this month regarding the re lations of the parties to the canvass. Democrats propose to stand by the whole ticket till the polls are closed. They started out to sweep the state, and the progress of the canvass is the best indication that they will stay with It. The advantage they now have is in the unquestioned fact that the leading candidates on their state ticket are al ready well out of the woods. With Mr. Toole it is merely a question of the amount of his majority. lie has car ried Montana in former years by thousands; he will do it this year by a majority larger than he has ever yet enorsd. and the reasons for it are in the mind of every voter in the territory. Republican newspapers having any knowledge whatever of the temper of the people recognize this fact. The eslema Joarsna sees, It and we do not wonder that, in abandonment of its state ticket, it now appeals to republi eas to "keep their sharpest eye on the legslature." This is untimely advice, brt it may be the best course for the Jo.earws folowers, under the circum llllnoi As for the democrats, they will keep bth oyes steadily fixed on the whole ekest. The faet that Tools and Magin als ae aready winners will tempt no -ists to relax their elort, but the we wish to impress is that the started oat to win from top to bttm thLs eor, and it Is serprising that the repble u press has been so remarkably slow in ending that out. The truth is that the heads of tI republean state ticket have set bee able to pullr together, and th repablian mamager know It. The lJemao e l itselt is aware that, to wkt. Mr. Carter did not desire mam satem of Mr. Power. Op that gine tis i ifall possession of ll the S , Mess than this, t s atmmed regarding the aof Seamvis whisk tas t ted Mir. tr and Mr. Power Ia hearty u epratien, thr-ghf the agnacy of the repubbMeam eeatrl committee. And alp., the Jeersel Is aware that Mr. C'arter, mwrs skillUd an tim devious arts of polities, has gradually drifted away from Mr. Power. who, le t ttake ease oI kimUelf, Is making poor shift of It. We remind ormostemporry that wme of the teirvtoryb leading mewspapers ae leading redl support to Mr. Power'a esavems. I this assertion Is in any way antue, the *rAwxnIA* asks the Ileleoa Jouraal to orrect it. For several days the party has been "keep. Ing its sharpest eye on the legislature." This town is willing to put itself un der bosds that any man who wants to talk politics shall have an open field and a fair hearing. The republicans who met last night in the hall oan First street found this out. thw of the speakers, who never devoted a day of his life to maanual labor, told the audience how the bosses at the Anaeonda works march men up to the polls and for. their votes. Another mann, who has done his ten hours' work at the smelter daily for the past five years, declared that during the years he has worked for the company his vote was never coerced or even in quired into. Free speech is a good thing. It knocks out plenty of repub lican lies In the first round. TOO FAR SACk. The Butte Inter Moantetl is pitch ing headlong into the canvass with ex tracts from seventeenth-century Ing lish, by the use of which it hopes to split wide open a party now so harmo nious in spirit and cordial in its action that no ordinary event can divide it. Two days ago our Hutte contempor ary printed an nlateresting bit of edi torial under the caption, "licking Out Ills Friends." It is what the artists call a "restoration." No member of the ITANDA al staff is able to may Just when or where the article was first printed on which this adroit pamphrar is btased, but all agree that the paraphrase itself is a good deal more clever than the original. The TnTANDARD is willing to Join is sue with the Inter Mountalf on the whole range of topics running back to the time when Lewis and ('lark first tramped these mountains, but, when it comes to going as far back as the prehistoric christian missions, we must insist on drawing the line. We do not care to inquire how men picked out their friends in the hazy past, before (1lum bus was born, and even before the Butte lterMonntafi was invented; for there was a time when even the Butte Inter Monntas was not in existence. 4ome republicans may not believe this, but it is a fact which can be proved from the scriptures. The NTAiNDAuK is not disposed to discuss prehistoric man. We would even prefer to talk about the Mills bill, dreary as that discussion would prove to be -from the republican standpoint. Musu It Anthony wants a perma nent building, to be known as the Isa bells temple, erected as a part of the exhibition in 1iNt. Queen Isabella, she says, put up the money for Columbus to make his voyage of discovery, anud s therefore entitled to some of the glory of the expedition. imss Anthony was visiting in Spain at the time and knows all about it. = THEIR RELATION TO IRRIGATION. C(olored christians of the baptist persuasion, who met in convention at Indianapolis this week, adopted a reso lution asking President Harrison to recommend to congress an appropria tion of one hundred million dollars in aid of colored people who wish to leave the Mouth. This resolution was adopted after a debate in which was revealed a settled purpose in the minds of the col ored baptists to strike out for the West. Tl'is sort of tribal mnigrationl comntes up for periodical discussion inl the 'United Mtates. As soon as enmancipa tion was proclaimed by President Liln coln, many of the most ardent friends of the colored mant declared their un bounded faith in the plan that would have transported every liberated slave to Africa. The colonizing scheme proved to be a dismal failure, and some of those who were its staunchest advocates lived to witness its collapse. Twice within fifteen years, significant movements west ward, on the part of large bodies of colored people, have been attempted. Both of of them failed, and those who ven tured on the pilgrimage were as re pentant as the average white settler in North Dalkota if apt to be. The tidal wave brought only a few of these peo ple as far west as the Missouri river; indeed, tourists in Montana are among the first to notice the relatively small number of negroes in our somewhat mixed population. We suppose that, If President Harri son and congress take favorable action on the resolution adopted in Indian apolls, colored baptist brethren in good standing ought to be entitled to the first show for shipment westward, sinee they are the projectors of the plan. Mon tana ouht to have her choice regard ing the number to be comnigned as her share of the o10o,000,000 shipment. That round sum ought to furnish trans portation for about all the orthodox darky baptists in the country. If we are to have any importation in that line, it would be wise for us to discriminate in favor of the regular old-fash Loned dyed-in-the-wool baptists who stand out for immersion in the river and will take nothing short of It.

Just where the big elebration in honor of the four bhuadredth anidver sary of the discovery of Ameria shall be ld is a questeon that is emusing a lover's quarrel between New York and C(hicago. The natieoal espital is really the proper place for hokldg the cele bration, but is doubtful itf Washington could accommodate the gas number of people who would be attracted there. New York is. of course, the leading city of the continent, and from a basiness standpoint her laims comae next to those of Washington. Chicago's only claim to the fair is her central location and vast acres of prairies with in her city lmits. No far s gaining notoriety is con cerned, (hlcago doesn't need the fair. In addition to her famous pit, well heeled damels and river of mud, she has the great Cronin elew mines which are practicably ilexhaustible. Until the Cronin murderers are brought to justlee, Chicago has no claim to the confidence of the nation. Philadelphia had the big. cetennial, and is therefore barred from competing for the prise. The other eities men tioned have no mosre title to the plum than has Anaconda. The fair will un doubtedly be held in New York. ('hi eago threatens to get even by extend ing her city limits and scooping in the metropolis of America. With John L. digging post holes for his political fence in loston, Corporal Tanner out of a Job in Washington and Fire Alarm Foraker running for governor again in Ohio, it may be truly said that the political pot of the east is beginning to bubble. "Toole falls tat!" shrieks the Mahoula eensing Item in a headline. True. lie is falling upon Brother Power and smiting him hip and thigh with such effect that nothing but a dfat surface is now left to fall upon and smite. New York state is having endlesb trouble with its Indians whose roaqrvatlams take up moe than U5 area of eellent fanming land, little of which is cultivated. All morts of plans have been drvised to bring the Imilana under the reailag In fluenee oft evlciaton, but aUl aItemmpts have proved to be a dismal fallhie.

Preslidet Harrion desnles the report that detectives attended on his journey, last .nteeday, tfrom Washleton to Deer Park.

The fact Is that, with ase exception, there is not a mann on that ticket worth $2,00 tkday. Voters will not place that fact to the discredit of these caudklwsts. STANDARD TOPICS.

By a recent survey Nevada acquires a strip of land sis miles wide on the Call fornia boundary, which has l eretofore been included ins the latter state.

A man who found his room in Parls robbed of all his jewelry perceived a pe culiar perhfume, ad a few days later no ticed it again when passing two well dreamed womean n the street.
