Their Uisinîtnuousncss Disintegrated and their Diaholiral Developments Fnliy Deuteros ropied—The Cherry Tree of Demoi rary, which has Thrived so Lon? in this Valley, has been De spoiled-Col. Sanders Did it With His Little Hatchet. [coRRIisPOXDKXCE OF THE HEKALI).] Sex River Cross ix«, Oct. 11, 1880. On the evening of the Hth one of the larg est ]M)litical meetings convened here that was ever held in the valley—so said the oldest inhabitants. The occasion was the announce ment that Col. Sanders would address the eiti/ens upon the issues of the hour. When it was known on the Monday following Ma jor Magiums' appearance here that Col. San ders would speak at the Crossing the Thurs day following, the unterrified commenced in their usual way) to throw political dirt at the Colonel, and in every conceivable man ner discouraged everylxxly from either mak ing preparations for the speaking or attend ing the meeting. What ! a Republican meet ing at Sun River Crossing? Impossible ! said they. Rut men working in the good cause are not easily discouraged, and the Republi cans went to work with a will, and the re sult of their work and the impressions made in this valley on Thursday night will rise in the distant future to indicate their fealty. The leader of the round-up made it conven ient to move his men fifteen miles up the river on the very evening of the meeting. Of course it would be unnecessary for me to say he is a Democrat. But by way of pre lude I will say he is a candidate for an office of considerable importance. The courage of the Republicans, however, was not to be daunted, and they went to work with a vim. The large and commodious wareroom of George Steell was emptied of its tons of goods and comfortable seats were arranged therein. A platform was erected for the speakers, the room elegantly arranged and brilliantly lighted. The full band from the Fort was down. Although taunts and jeers «ere freely indulged in by the simon-pure Bourbons, and bets were freely ottered that the meeting would be a 'failure, neverthe less it was a grand success, and was the most enthusiastic ever held in this valley. The ladies (Cod bless them) were out in full force, the house was crowded, the baud played patriotic music, the Republicans were ■ odiant. And thus the scaffold which the Democrats had built lor our immolation be came a throne upon which the Republicans mounted, recrowned and resceptred, ready once more to stand up and be counted on the side of union, liberty, honesty and uni versal freedom. While at the Democratic blow out there were but alxmt 60 men pres ent, who stood around the doors of the sal oons to listen to the "Great I Am" as he re counted the "what I have done," fully 250 wen* present to listen to the greatest man Montana ever had. Good order and marked attention were the prevailing elements. Bursts of applause greeted the Colonel as he gathered up those stones that Maj. Magin nis had brought all the way from the Rock bound Coast of Maine, and hurled them one after another at the head of the Democratic dogmas, until it was one homogenous mass, and still hurling them until the whole farce enacted here last week had reached such a state of emollescence that its further domoli tion was untenable. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Burcher, who introduced Mr. W. H. DeWitt, cadidate for District Attorney. Mr. DeWitt is a very pleasant speaker, and by the able manner in which he handled his subject he made many friends. After holding the aud ience for al>out an hour he retired amid the plaudits of the whole assembly. Max Waterman was next called out who made a few remarks, after which came , the great man of the evening. When Col. Sanders stepped forward and was introduced, there was one wild burst of applause, and it was several minutes before the Colonel could proceed. Why was it that Col. Sanders could receive such an ovation, while Maj. .Magi unis could hardly receive the mildest applause? is the question asked by a good many thinking men. And I have heard the question answered: Because the iwoplc of Montana are beginning to ask themselves the question, whether Maj. Ma ginnis is the only man in the Territory who is capable of representing their interests at the National capital. For an hour and a half the Colonel pro < coded to tear down and scatter to the winds the untenable dogmas that have been so adroitly put to them, so submissively accepted ami fostered by many who heretofore have not stopped to question their authenticity or honesty of purpose. The able manner in which he handled Maginnis' luxuries, " To bacco and Whiskey," was l>oth amusing and entertaining, and when he got after the dif ferent rings that are sapping the life blood of the Territory, he proceeded to give each of them a thorough combing, to the amusement and entire satisfaction of every one present. Nor was this all. He proceeded to lay bare all the schemes of the prevailing party in the Legislative halls since the formation of the Territory, being frequently interrupted by tin* wildest bursts of applause. The whole speech was one grand affair and was received by the people with undisguised satisfaction and favor, and has been the theme of conversation ever since. The Demo crats are in a quandary. They don't just know what to do. The nice little time they had has faded from their memory, and those whom they expected to rally around the Maginnis flag, who by rights didn't belong there, are deserting them, and many who have heretofore l>een reticent regarding poli ties are stepping to the front and openly pro claiming their Republican principles and their preference for Col. Sanders. The meeting was a grand success and gained a .U ( *)d many votes. The ball is open ; on with the dance, and in November we will take a count here at Sun River Crossing which will show a different balance than has been s hown heretofore. MAX. is MAGINNIS AT BOZEMAN. Graphic Report of the Meeting Speech of the Fifth-Termer. [correspondence of the herald.] Bozeman, M. T., October 12th. Last night the Democrats had their jubilee Chesnut's hall was comfortably filled when Mr. Maginnis appeared on the platform, escorted by a few of our prominent poli ticians. To accommodate all of the active, local Democratic politicians, it would have l>een necessary to enlarge the platform so as to take in half of the hall. After an intro duction by Mr. Vivion, the meeting was opened by a short speech on general politics by Mr. Armstrong, candidate for District Attorney. It is unnecessary to criticise his effort. He was followed by Mr. Maginnis. Those parts of his speech which do duty at every meeting were well written, and delivered with better effect than is usual with him ; but as soon as he turned to local issues his speech, both in manner and matter, con trasted painfully with the ready eloquence of Col. Sanders. It is difficult to give a resume of what he said, as he would drop one subject, strike off in different directions, and then return to his starting point, but a few points are worth noting. He began with dividing mankind into two classes—those who achieve, and those who criticise and sneer. Major Maginnis belonged to the first class, to the successful statesmen; Sanders was Mephistopheles, " the worst devil of them all." He is further, " a lean and and hungry Cassius," " a chronic aspirant for office and chronically sat down upon." Poor Mr. Maginnis had had his first nomination forced upon him by his party, and thus it has been ever since. This year even his old opponents, such ak Mr. Word, had insisted that he must be the man. His old personal friend, General Hancock, had entreated him to remain East and take the stump for him but although this Would'haVe been his per sonal preferepye, he kjneyv that there was no salvation for-fhe Montana Democracy unless he again consented to be'W "candidate. There fore Hangocrk will cry in vain tor Maginnis iu his hour of need, and wheu the country is hurried to destruction by another Republican victory, Maginnis will presumably say : " could have saved Hancock from defeat, but sacrificed him for the welfare of the party in Montana—therefore, give me another nomi nation. But this is a digression. It was not in the speech, at least not exactly in these words. We had a rehash of the Cam paign two years ago, and Maginnis chanted again " the cock, the. bull and tlie bear." lie crowed over his famous victory after a fight which " never.soiled one feather in his plu mage or rutiled one feather in his wing.' never knew a victory in such a fight was much to crow oyer ; but every man to his taste, and I have often seen a cockrell mount his dunghill, flap his wings and crow, just because he imagined lie had had a fight. He accused Sanders of "deserting his colors in the face of the enemy," implying that Col. Sanders left the army from cowardice, wonder whether Maginnis has ever heard or read anything of the early history of this Territory? If he has and has one grain of common sense, he must know' how ridiculous such a charge sounds, at least to all of the older settlers. Who is there that cannot call to mind instance after instance of Sanders' wonderful pluck and coolness? In what household in Montana is not the story famil iar of the decisive struggle witli the road agents, when Sanders was the leader of the law and order party, and when, but for his decision and strength of character, Plummer and his confederates would have escaped. Those were days which tried men's souls, and when it required the highest physical as well as moral courage to face the howling crowd of ruffians at Bannaek. Col. Sanders wa$ only a young, untried lawyer, but he did not flinch, and Montana owes an ever lasting gratitude to him and the other brave men w ho stood by him in that day. No, Major Maginnis, you were a good* soldier and have an honorable war record, but do not sully it by casting slurs on the courage of a man who has shown a higher bravery than it has ever been your lot to be called upo% to show. With a lurid battle picture Mr. Maginnis closed his speech and sat down imid the applause of his party friends. One portion of his remarks I have not yet noticed: His reference to the "Indian ring." It was the same old stale story which he has spoken in Bozeman, as lie well knows that a speaker here has but to mention those magie words to raise a storm of applause. They would therefore call for no particular criti cism if he had not used or rather abused the opportunity to make an utterly unprovoked and most scurrilous attack on one of our citi zens. After characterizing Col. Sanders as the spy and detective of the "Indian Ring," he turned suddenly on Mr. Alderson and with a voice almost choked with passion he launched against him a tirade with the words of which I will not soil this page. Mr. Alderson's articles in the Avant Cour ier during this campaign have lieen singular ly moderate. It is well known that he has strong Republican convictions and would un doubtedly like to expose them. But as his is the only paper in the county be has felt that he ought not to take sides. Be lore Mr. Maginnis' nomination he criticised that gentle man's aspirations to the nomination for a fifth term ; but even in a neutral newspa per the question was certainly debatable iie as ; a a fore the nomination. Compared with the articles in the Democratic party paper in and Butte the language of the Courier was highly complimentary. There was therefore not a shadow of an excuse for Maginnis' attack, and it could not help make every fair-mind ed hearer indignant. If this is a sample of the Major's speeches, the more he makes the better for the Republicans. He might as well have singled out any other prominent Republican present for an attack from his venomous tongue,and if he thinks that the people of this county enjoy listening to the abuse of one of our own c itizens by a stran ger, he may find out on the 2d of November that he lias made a grievous mistake. Col. Sanders made a numlier of distinct charges against Maginnis, but that gentle man did not meet or even attempt to meet a single one of them. In regard to the Crow treaty especially he claimed all the credit for it. "I did it but he did not say a word to disprove the facts, as they are known to everyone here, that the treaty was carried by the influence of a few Eastern capitalists, who met at every step obstructions thrown in their way by Magin nis, and it was only w hen he saw' that the treaty w ould be carried over his head that he gave up his resistance. He claims to have virtually written Senator Blaine's speeches on the Timber bill ; but the people of Mon tana will prefer to believe that they owe some thanks to Mr. Blaine in that matter The fact remains that Mr. Maginnis lias not lieen the representative of the Territory. He has represented a clique, one or two per sons and firms, has, as Col. Handers said, worn their collar and proved liiinself an obedient, well trained servant. If that is the kind of Delegate the Democrats want, all right; let them make Maginnis a perpetual Delegate. But I can hardly believe that to be the deliberate choice of this community For my part, and I think a majority of the votes of Gallatin county are of the; same mind, I want a Delegate who will allow'no man to put a collar on him and print on it in big golden letters, "My dog." P. K. FREE FOR ALL. The Maginnis " Consolation Piirsc." All Entries Withdrawn Since the Ohio and Indiana Elections. To let himself dow n easy, as lie thought, and to break the force of overwhelming de feat in November, Major Maginnis, when nominated for a fifth term, pledged himself not to renew his candidacy for further Dele gate honors. A Democrat whose astute dis cernment everybody concedes, and whose 1 c-le v*>r way of " putting things " everybody admires, calls this bid a " consolation purse," offered by Martin to contestants whom he has either beaten or has again and again c rowded from the Delegate track. The rules for the race, laid down in Maginnis' Manual, are comprehensive in covering not only the Delegate matter, but prizes of Federal ap pointments and such. He who " hollers " loudest arid longest Tor Maginnis now is to be awarded first money — the Delegateship taking precedence of all. Lesser prizes range from the Governorship to Postmaster of the X roads, to be distributed—when Hancock is seated in the White House ! The entries closed on the eve of the October elections, before the results in Indiana and Ohio could be known or guessed at. Among the nags named to share in the "consolation" business were Word, Langhorne, Napton, McCormick, Mayhew, Mitchell, Watson, Woolfolk, and others of lesser Southern or other note. Pools sold tolerably lively up to Monday night, with Word a strong favorite against the field for Delegate, and Woolfolk selling slow for District Attorney. Tuesday there came a sudden closing up of the pool box. The prizes are all said to have vanished as if by magic. Reports of withdrawal of all entries thickly fill the air. There is no consolation " in sight for those whom Ma ginnis Would use to help his last and losing race. SANbERS AT VIRGINIA CITY. Enthusiastic Reception*--Old Madison Aivake and Ready to Roll up. a Rousing Majority for the "Old War Horse." ' 4 V ' A < [special to the herald.] ' Virginia City, October 15. Col. Sanders arrived here yesterday and was greeted, with a salute of thirteen guns and au enthusiastic reception at the hands of a large concourse of old. frinds of both parties: 1 In the evening lie delivered one of the most brilliant as well as one of the mast convincing speeches ever listend to in this city. • The glorious news from Ohio and Indiana con tributed to the cheerfulness of Republicans, and brightens the prospects in Montana. Nothing is more'certain than that Sanders will sweep Madison county. Old time Dem ocrats enthusiastically support the "Old War Horse." OLD MADISON AWAKE. Great Turnout to hear Col. Sanders at Sheridan. There was an enthusiastic throng to greet the Republican standard liearer at Sheridan Friday evening, and of the splendid meeting and the telling address of Col. Sanders the telegraph apprises us this morning. The assemblage was twice as large as that called together hv Maginnis the night before, ancl as much ahead of the Democratic meeting in animation and spirit as it was in actual num bers. "Old Madison," says the dispatch, "will thunder in November." —Referring to the Republican meeting at White Sulphur Springs, the Husbandman says : "The Republican rally Monday even ing was quite an enthusiastic affair. Anvil shots announced the hour of the meeting, and awoke the shepherds of the valley from their peaceful slumbers*after the address was closed. Jesse Armitage was chosen chair man of the meeting, and first introduced W H. DeWitt, who entertained us at some length w ith a rehearsal of w hat he conceived to lie the issues between the two great polit cal parties. He is a very deliberate speaker, has an easy address and made a very favora ble impression. Col. Sanders, the Republi can "war horse," spoke at considerable length, going over all the ground, from his first can didacy for the office in early days to the present. His remarks, which were of con siderable length and delivered in that pleas ant style peculiar only to himself, were very interesting and were listened to with pro found attention, which showed that the, aud ience had the utmost respect for the speaker.
