Ole Dull, tlie celebrated violinist, died at Derger, Norway, on the eighteenth of tins month. The Spaniards are just now in the state o* mind of the young man anxiously awaiting the sprouting of his moustache. They are very much occupied about the heir expec tant. A fashion item informs us that bridal veils are now made of illusion. This choice of fab ric must be owing to a desire of the victims to maintain the " illusion ** to the very last moment possible.

Dull is now pretty well j occupied. The lim ning of Eureka I'm nislios one of those warnings which, as a general thing, are only thought of when it is too late to profit by them. Hon many towns in Montana, aside from Helena, have made any intelligent pro vision to guard against fire. In .Selesia railway and river embankments have been swept away, farms inundated and j many fiyes lost in teceut floods. The des- j (ruction of the growing crops was so thorough ; that a serious famine to extend over a wide j expanse of country is feared. The Independent l as ft pi opliet, some son of a seventh son, who puts on bis consider ing cap and gravely predicts that Hütte will I elect Maginnis delegates to the county con-| volition.

Mr. Geo. Vinton, until quite lately a j prominent republican politician of Illinois, i has announced himself a supporter of Hau j cock. In giving his reasons for the change ! he says he "is disgusted with the recent cor I nipt tendencies of the republican party man the the ly's tion fices it. with well no that nest bers ing efit I I agement, and with the wholesale abuse of j tlie South, which -eetion he lias lately visit Of the Cnicago ticket lie says : " It was " I a compromise on one whom his ow n party jj I friends have convicted of perfldity and eor ,-i j ruption, with a seeond whose only tame in r. the nation is of having been discharged in ) disgust from the public service by the head of Ins own party."

From China comes the intelligence that tl.o government has lately abrogated an old de cree prohibiting Chinese subjects from en gaging iu direct trade with foreign countries. The full scope of the measure of repeal can not be estimated without further details, but the gravest apprehensions are entertained re- . specting its probable effect upon the ocean 1 commerce of the world. Chinese labor iu ! the I'uited States and oilier countries is cheap, I but this cheapness is ruinous extravagance ! when compared with the remuneration paid Chinese laborers iu their native land. In China ocean steamships can be constructed for less than half what it would cost to build them in the other navy yardy of the world. After bo lug built they are manned by seamen whose wages compared with wages paid European or American scaur n will bear about tlie same ratio that (lie wage:, of Chinese agrieultura' a 3 laborers bear to tlie wages of white labor. Witli ships thus built and equipped it would be useless for the mercantile marine of any other country to attempt to enter into open competition, and tlie question "what are we going to do about it," is already asked with alarm. Ko long as tlie Chinaman was brought into competition only with tlie poor man in the harvest fields,vineyards and manufactories of tlie I'aeilie coast tlie eastern people could consider the matter with great complacency. was tlie "free, extravagant habits of tlie that rendered the 1 . , , .. . , early gold digging days j j i for lo of working people of tiie western slope unable to compete with Chinese labor, and Chinese competition, by teaching them lie: necessity of frugality and sustained industry would even- ; easy to taxe a piniosopmcai view oi me sou- j j ject as long as the laboring classes were the j only sufferers, but so soon as the interests of ' w caitby ship-owners are endangered, how | | quickly do we hear a tune pitch"' 1 j «îiit noie ou rendering the* with variations.

TO AN INQUIRING CORRESPONDENT. A Deer Lodge correspondent writes, over the signature of "A Democrat,and offers the following conundrum: 44 Why must men have a life-lease on all the best paying offices in the gift of the people? Is it because the democrats as a party are so corrupt that they dare not tmstanyof their number in office except a favored few ? Or is it because no others in the party have brains enough to dis charge the duties of the various offices?'' In reply we would state to "Democrat*' that in our opinion neither of his queries suggests the true solution. To our way of thinking the explanation is simply this : As long as the party chooses to make a perpetual investiture in the hands of one individual of the only im portant office in its gift, just so long may we expect to find this iniquitous policy adopted and applied to the incumbency of the county offices. As long as we find the democratic doctrine of rotation in office is openly flouted and repudiated in the bestowal of the chief office at the disposal of the. Montana demo crats, we need not expect to find it honored aud-observed willi reference to the minor of does. Men are inclined lo be imitative, and it is especially in questionable practices, in practices difficult to defend strictly on their own merits, that this imitativeness comes in to play when an instance can be cited of one possessing public confidence and esteem and indulging in the practices complained of. A county officer cannot with very good grace be accused of being animated by a spirit of seli seeking ambition to the sacrifiée of the party welfare in striving again and again, for one term after another of a minor ofliec, when in reply to such a charge he has only to point to the incumbent of the chief and best office at the command of the Montana democrats to prove that that very practice receives the par ly's express sanction, the seal of its most un qualified approval. If the principle of rota tion were recognized with reference to our chief office, the incumbents of the minor of fices would not dare depart fiom or repudiate it. We should then have a h altliy change with every election, except the usual compli ment of second term for such as have dune well during their litst. A second tgrm, but no third. What a change would be brought about by tlie substitution of such a policy for that now obtaining! How much more ear nest zeal could we detect among the mem bers of a party whose offices would be con ferred upon one after another of its deserv ing members and not farmed otrt, for the ben efit of a chosen few ! lint there is little im mediate prospect, it seems, of any such change being introduced, and we cannot ex pect it so long as an example of perpetual office-holding is furnished by the head man agers of the party. oxn or x ext «vmi.irs ism ks. The several Democratic County Conven lions are called lo assemble within the near (|,j s as v,ell as to tlie other forms future, and it is not loo early for democrats yr begin to consider the railway policy they wish tlieir party to adopt. This policy should tie enunciated by the county conventions in in structions to the nominees lor the Legisla lature, and enunciated in terms so distinct as to leave no possibility of evasion on tho plea of tlieir not being definite or intelligible. At tin next session we may be sure tlie railroad men will be on hand once more, and that tb„ railroad question will be again revived in tlieir demands for "help" under one form or another. It is not at all likely that such de mands. if made,will be for anything less than for a county subsidy, at tlie very least. Still the petition for exemption may possibly be presented and it will be best so to word Hie instructions that they will clearly and ex plicitly define the party's wishes with respect f "aid lo internal improvements." If the party is of opinion that county and territorial exemp tion from taxation should be granted then let its representatives in convention say so, and say it distinctly. If it is willing to pro ceed a long step further and declare that the people of Montana, or the people of any coun ty, should burden themselves with a crushing debt for the sake of subsidizing the railroad builders, then, in this instance also, let its representatives express the party's wishes. But in any event tiie instructions should be as dear as language can make them, so that they can be understood by all. Then, let the nominees for tlie Legislature be given to understand that tlieir acceptance of the nomi nation under sucii instructions will be con sidered as a direct pledge, to obey them, and that whoever violates this pledge will thereafter be held unworthy of any office of honor or profit at tlie disposal of the party. There should be no foolishness about Ibis railroad question. Now is I he time for Hie people lo make up tlieir minds on the sub jects of subsidy, etc., and to give politicians to understand that tlieir wishes must he obeved.

" A poor excuse is better than none,' says an old proverb ; but only a little reflection is needed to show us that this saying is far from being universally true in its applicabil ity. Sometimes a poor excuse is far worse (ban none; or at least far worse than silence. The man whose course we do not approve may escape censure so long as we are of the opinion that lie lias reasons, accepted by bis own judgment at least, as good and sufficient motives for having entered upon that course. While we are of this way of thinking, and so long as the individual keeps his mouth shut, ho may possibly possess our respect; however objectionable may be certain of bis proceedings when viewed apart and consid ered by themselves. No sooner, however, does lie undertake to justify those proceed ings than he is confronted by the Immediate necessity of producing a sufficient and accept able defense of them. It lie succeeds in so doing then all is well. If he fails; if he breaks silence only to bring forward a limp ing, sophistical excuse, one that, could not possiby find acceptance of any intelligent mind, then bis defense of words is weakness where bis defense of silence bad been strength, and bis poor excuse is a thousand times worse than none at all. The charita ble conjectures in which we had sought justi fication for his moral lapses are immediately dismissed. His faults lie glaringly before us in all their enormity and the condemnation formerly withheld while judgment was sus pended is now pronounced in no unmeasured terms. An instance ot this kind is afforded in the recent course of the Independent. When the Independent saw fit to adorn itself with the Maginnis collar a week <u- more ago, the pub lic being uninformed as to its motives in tak ing that step, was not in a position to pro nounce an unreserved judgment upon it. The tante displayed by a professed party leSder in acting as tlie mouthpiece and pocket organ of an individual might be made the subject of caustic criticism, but so long as wc were iu doubt as to the more serious motives lying heb nd, anil which bad to be revealed before the Independent '.s course ot action could be intelligently passed upon, charily suggested tlie possibility of those motives be ing founded on more substantial reasons than our inventiveness could portray, and we were warned to judge not rashly oil insufficient grounds. It was a ease of defense by silence. Hut lately the Independent has spoken; it has made a defense of words, ami in its defense as presented we have a notable instance of a poor excuse being far, far w orse than none. It bases its support of a fifth term upon the following considerations: I If Hancock is elected, 1rs administration will be besieged by a horde of office-seekers, and unless strong influences are brought to bear, the territory will be flooded with a lot of foreign appointees. New judges, ignorant of our laws, will sit upon the bench, and every oilier office in the territory vv ill be filled by a new set oi politicians who would, doubt less undertake to run matters in Montana to suit themselves, and would furnish all the. congressional aspirants required by our Jtultc contemporary. Nothing would lie so disastrous to the démocratie party as this state of tilings. The old war horses of tlie party iveuld find them selves supplanted by a new set of men, and general disgust would doubtless take posses sion of the old leaders of the party, and largely of its masses. To avert such a calami ty, it is important that we send to congress that man who would have the greatest influ ence with the incoming administration and witli congress. That man is beyond all ques tion the Hon. Martin Maginnis. The life long friend of General Hancock, and one of Hie recognized leaders of democratic thought in congress. Maginnis can avert from ns this deluge of foreign officeholders if any man iu Montana could do it. defense would do well if to of he Now, lilts defense would do very well if we had a Caliphate instead of a Presidency of the I'uited States. We can readily imag i..e that tlie GaFpli Hancock might tie tnfltt- j eneed to a very great extent by Vislet Ma- ! ginnis, or by Maginnis, Pasha of Three Tails I —perhaps we should say of five terms—but unfortunately for the above, choice little morn an of sophistry w e have not. a Ualiphate to be run by favoritism. We have.a Presi dency. and if General Hancock be elected the policy of his administration toward terri tories, whatever the same may be, will be ap plied to Montana iu common with the other t territories. If tlm democratic administration borrow from tint republicans the Ihiquitous policy of filling all territorial offices with ap pointments made from the older states ot gen tlemen entirely ignorant of frontier people or frontier life, then that system will be applied to Montana, Mr. Maginnis to the contrary notwithstanding ; no matter flow much of a talent lie may have of inspiring rural news papers with awe of the momentous influence in he wields at Washington. If the democratic administration decide upon makingsta'es up pointments to territorial offices the Indtjund ent may possess its soul in the peaceful assur ance tiiat nu Iural rooster from the frontier | even though lie he tlie "personal ftieiul of j General Hancock" will be allowed to claim ; for the lerritoiy he reptesents exemption from the system intended to apply to all. On Hie other hand should the democrats ministration of teriitorial affairs by appoint ; j Ilg 0 „ly citizens of tlie territories to office ! it*the same, then we believe that Major Ma j would possess no, a whit more' influ .......... j t h e ir properly elected delegate, Hie strongest in- j credentials of their fullest confidence and is j , U ost profound esteem. And even the hide pendent will not undertake to say that we j mako a nu ,ch needed improvement in the ad i g i lm j s would possess not a whit more infill the ! euce u,,. administration than would any In j 0t | 10| . gentleman whom the people of Mon I laua m j g i, t seUl | to Washington, bearing, as man far more intiinataly acquainted witli Montana, with it» people, its industries, its advantages and wants than is Major Maginnis, whose only to \ cannot send to Washington ; ex intimataly acquainted will ill- ; acquaintance with quartz-mining Montana is a | that of the tourist who makes every summer a pleasure D ip through our valleys.

Notwithstanding tlie foregoing we can very well understand, even under the plan of tilling territorial offices with territorial appointments, why Maginnis should like to get there. "When you get a good tiling press it," is evidently liis motto, even though the pressing be at tlie risk of party defeat. Little bargains of offices to bç j secured, etc., in tlie contingency of a national democratic triumph liave been made with a view to tlie parly welfare, of course, not through mere considerations of personal am bition. No, of course not. But we beg to inform tlie Organ that some of those little bargains have become public, ami that if the particular one that relates to tlie Chief Jus ticeship ever be consummated It will raise a storm of indignation throughout Montana and such a storm that tlie Montana democra cy might be puzzled to weather it. Hoes tlie Organ wish us to be more explicit ? A PIOI S CAMPAIGN In Indiana Hie campaign opened about two weeks ago. I,ate Jloosier papers inform us that between Hie present time and the hold ing of tlie October elections the republicans will hold four tlwuuand meetings, while the democrats will have two hundred of tlieir best speakers on tlie stump, changing from place to place and making campaign speeches In every important precinct in tlie state. Besides this there will be brass bauds, torch light processions, Hie marching of political clubs, etc., etc., on either sides, ad libitum. Tlie magnitude of those preparations prove to us tlie importance attached to the spectacu- i lar features of a campaign, anil the necessity j of making effective demonstrations by way of j cultivating Hie requisite enthusiasm when tiie contest is to be any way close. Thinking of | those things the democrats may well ask j themselves if it is advisable to embark under j Maginnis in a lifeless, cold-water campaign against such a struggle as the republicans in tend to make? If anyone doubts that the j democratic campaign will be dull under j Maginnis let him take the trouble lo inter- I view the democratic leaders and orators of the territory and ask how many intend to i train under the fifth-termer. A levy ques tions will satisfy him Had if nominated Ma ginnis will be left to play a lone band against tlie brightest ami keenest speakers tlie repub- ! lieans can place on tlie stump. The dean.- | eratie orators of Montana will do yeoman's service for tlieir party's candidate during his. j second, or perhaps even his third candidacy ; j hut when il comes to a fourth, ami then to a j fifth term, they feel that it is crowding the j mourners just a little too much—that the ■ delegateship has him degraded from a party j possession to a piece of personal property, j ami as such they leave to its owner the task j of looking after it. A Maginnis campaign,; then, will mean a strictly Maginnis canvass, ami ilia! again Is synonymous with one eon dueled a la Dr. Tanner. The terms may i seem contradictory when a campaign is de- ! scribed at once as democratic and cold-water, but we have the past to appeal to in justifica tion for this definition of it. This gentleman has appeared four times as a solicitor for Lite best office iu the gift of Hie Montana demo crats. Four different times ho has been hon ored with tlie highest honor at tlie command of his party, and in return: What lias he done? If he lias ever contributed towards party en thusiasm by even so much as the purchase of a bottle of wine in Montana, then the charge never was pressed home and proved up against him. Moldanians do not greatly ad mire skinflints in politics or elsewhere. A II. A DE It »OK THF. 01*1*0.XII lOX Heretofore it lias been a matter of regret among the anti-machine democrats tiiat they I were unprovided with a leader in whose sttp port they could marshal tlieir forces in a vig- j orotis protest against a fifth term. This com-. plaint, we are pleased to say, will be heard no longer, as a leader iu every way acceptable to the parly, ami one in whom the people of Montana, irrespective of party, have tiie most implicit confidence, has been found. On Sat urday, the 21st iust., as a patty of prominent democrats wme discussing at Butte, the polit ical situation in Montana, the ni-ed of an anti-Magiunis leader was referred to. < lue after another tlie names of prominent demo crats were passed in review, witli more or less favorable mention of each : bu'. it was only upon the person of the Hon. G. W. Stapleton that tins company were unanimous in tlieir opinion of ais eminent fitness in every respect for the office of Congressional Delegate from Montana. This happy unanimity of opinion —a unanimity so creditable at once to Mr. Stapleton, and to tlie judgment of tlie gentle men expressing it—suggested tiie propriety of an interview with Mr. Stapleton to learn | whether or not lie would accept the nomitnt j lion if tendered.
