This L r, hrl;ht L; superior^to any man-niad. laws. To inhibit or^restrict it is injustice. While aogM have
legalprlrllegaa there can be na auah^thing as equal rights for all, ami every^privilege granted t,; some Is a, restrlc.^Rgg or lnhibiti.it, of tha birthright of^other*. It follows, then, that In a true^democracy no franchises, privileges or^tnonopoliea can be vested In lin'Md^ttals. or in corporation* other than such
USare composed of all til^ people of n

Af'amlnse is a privll, g.^ arising^from th ^ i;runt of a sovereign or gov^^ernment: a privilege of a public nature^conferred on Individuals by grant froai^government. A privilege Is a apodal^or exclusive right conferred by law on^particular classes or persons and ordi^^narily In derogation of common right;^a light, immunity, benefit or advan^^tage enjoyed by a i^r*.^n or Issly of^persons beyond the tnmnion advan^^tages of otln r Individuals; the enjoy^^ment of some desirable rl|(ht. or an^eaemptlon from some evil or burden.^A mogjopoly is an exclusive right to^cany on a ccitaiu traffic
Obviously,then, there can be no guch
thingas equal rights In any commu^^nity or state where Individuals or com^^binations of Individuals enjoy franchise,^privileged or monopolistlc rights. It is^equally certain that lit a true democ^^racy whatever partakes of the nature^of u public function mutd Is- In the^hands of all the people, operated by^and for the Lenellt of all the people.^This is made plain when we consider^that factor which gives value to a^franchise. Jt is not Ihe cost of con^^struction, but the fuet that not only^the present population creates a de^^mand for the particular commodity,^such as gits, water or local transporta^^tion, but that increasing population^will tn ate a greater d inand. Now, if^what the individual creates belongs to^him, as It surely does, what can be^11101 ^ awtaaj than that what Is created^by the \v hole 1 .immunity belongs to the^creating community^ Ami when we^deduct the cost of construction of a^franchise monopoly from the capitali^^zation wo have a 1 viicilmler that repre-

Night was made for con^^viviality, for recreation and for rest.^Civilized human beings should not be^expected to go to work when all nature^is in repose. The folly of working all^night on a newspaper containing the^same la formation arbieh the afternoon
dailieshave already given to an In^^telligent pill,lie requires lull to lie lll-

yiuBJIa moral and religious stand^^point there is also an abjjei lloa to the
morningnewspaper. Both tin- Siindav^and the Monday papers are neeessari-^l\ printed, in part, on the Sabbath.^That is simply desecration. No self-^respecting t'hristian editor, unless his^salary exceeds a week, will consent^to ,|,, that sort of work. The publica^^tion of morning papers also encourages^, the stealing of lo w s from the afternoon^le w spapers. which is also to be de^^plored from a moral point of view,^though this fa, t may have no weight

In addition to their^g neral taxes (which is on the full^amount of their pioperlyt, pay a special^slock inspector and detective tax, an^Indemnity tux, and a special tax Pa^bounties on wild animals, as well as an^equal proportion of the Ileuses cnl-^lected In their counties.

Toslop now in the work of exter^^minating wolves and coyotes would be^almost a crime. AH stoikmen and^others not engaged In the Industry^know that the law has proved^lit ial. Cattlemen were sutierlng great^^er losses from wolves and coyotes than^from disease and winter storms until^the rut sent law- was enacted. The in vv^bounty law, with cash payment of cer-^tlAcntea, stimulated hunters ami ^wolf-^t is,^ and the result has been a very^[ perceptible decrease In the pests, par^^ticularly as to coyotes.

Tb.editor nf the Standard has inti^^mated to mo thai lie is Willing to sur^^render the editorial page of this paper,^in its issue of January 1, to his friends.^The infer, no- is that, at the time ,,f^making this kindly offer, the editor^had in view some function to take^plat !^ last night, at which his presence^. woultl be Indispensable. While I do^not like to em outage such lapses from^duty, the opportunity of breaking into^the editorial page of the Ma nda id for^I one day even and talking to its large^I army of patrons, is loo tempting to be^thrown aside.
Having1 arte blanche In everything^but space. 1 will endeavor, very brlelly,^lo right a few wrongs and correct a^few errors, ami in pursuance of Ibis^praiseworthy object I desire to say^that this particular portion of tin^ edi^^torial page of the Standard feels that^it lias not properly congratulated Um^people of Montana, on their escape^from the pitfall of silver monometall^^ism U)Waid] Which the left wing of de^^mocracy, beaded by Mr. lityan, was^landtag them; nor has it property rec^^ognized the patriotic efforts of the M, -^Klnb y republicans or sufficiently de^^nounced the scandalous conduct of the 1^to ^Called silver republicans in the re- |^cent campaign in this slate. Space is^too precious to enlarge upon these pill-^its at this time, but a simple and^straightforward avowal of the Stand^^ard's shortcomings in Iblg respect will^no doubt be sutli. ient for to-day.
TheStandard also feels the weight of^an an using conscience in the matter of^its somewhat curt and tllppant treat- I^hunt of those progressive women who, I^a short time ago, with courteous and |^Mattering resolutions, paid due homage I^lo the persistent courage with whiih^the Standard has not waged the bat^^tles of the legally unsanctioned female \^voter. If the Standard had this to tin^ov ^ r again. It w ould remember that one j^,.f its component parts will, while sit^^ting as a senator at the capital of Ihe |^I state, be exposed for the next sixty .^I da\s to the withering sarcasm of'^1 wonam ambitious for political prefer- ,
iamnt and covetous nf Ma seat, peavpab
Isites ami op|Mirtunitics. These are j
Iconsideration* that 'might induce the 1^Standard to view the perennial cru^^sade of tin so fair ami by no means^trail sisters with, at least, the absence^of bias that characterized some of the ;
jrepublican candidates on the state I
Iticket last fall.
I There are other tim, s and places In j^width the Standard has done those^things which it ought not to have done^and left undone these things which it j^ought to have done, and for these sins^of commission and omission it now j^erics me* culpa, having particular^reference now to Its summing up of^the late campaign In this state and its^ha^ty conclusion that fusion was en^^tirely unnecessary ami that those dear
Ikind friends and valiant allies who
Aawo usher in the new year we^are met Just beyond Its threshold by^Hi. Hfth legislative assembly of Mon^^tana. Its personnel in the main will^be of the democratic faith, ami It there-^lore go. s without saying that they are
g1 nu n with honest intentions. Hut
eventhe best men sometimes go wrong,^and a word of warning may not be^amiss. Many of the gentlemen are new^to public life In a legislative capacity,^unused to the ib-vimis ways of the.lob^^byist and unacquainted Willi the pitfalls^that surround the law-makers. Fortu^^nately or unfortunately, these gentle^^men will escape the responsibility of^electing a Uh!tod Stab s senator, with^all the excitement antl trimmings Itui-^,b nl to BVeh a duty, but in spite of that^bene- 1 they will be confronted with other^clgimfl upon their attention which in^the distance appear harmless, but^which, at close tptarters, assume for^^midable proportions antl become per^^plexing.
Therewill be two sides to every ques^^tion that will he presented and appeals^pro and con will he ninth' with forceful

time tlit si- matters are disposed of,^the teal trouble begins. The session^I promises lo be fruitful of topics that^; are open to discussion. There are lots^af them tbnl will soon present them^^selves. In the national legislature the^great question is Unit of tariff and pro-^1 taction I in the Montana legislature pro^^tection w ill he ask, d. but not of the^revenue i lass. The Indies will be out^: In force ami demand the protection of^the ballot; the populists will be on^band and claim protection for the peo^^ple against unwise legislation by means^of the initiative anil referendum; some^counties will ask protection against^schemes to dismember them in order^that new DOUntkM may lie ( rented; the
Ik man will insist that the slate
needsprotection from the assaults of^; other book men; the real good citizens^will try to prove that there Is great ne^^cessity for protection against gam^^blers; officials of the large l ilies will^tleinonst rate that they should be pro^^le, led against the grab game that has^been practiced by the state ami the^counting In the matter of licenses.^There may be other interests that want^protection, but lhaat will do for sam^^ples.
Inthis multiplicity td demands for^protection the most Important one has^bt en overlook, d.
