By order of Committee. JOS. DAVIS, Chairman. W. II. Trowbriikje, seeietary. In a casual way it is again remarked that the Cleveland organ relies to a con spicuous extent on the Herald for its daily supply of editorial inspiration. Ot'R es'emed contemporary, the Inde pendent. is moved to expatiate on the Fisheries message to the extent of its edi torial space, a Herald paragraph, as usual, inciting the staff of regulars and subs to a surfeit of windy speech. Tiierk is no disguising the fact that the Democrats are despondent and seriously feel the weight of the Cleveland handicap. This is the case in Montana. The feeling not only extends throughout every North ern State but throughout every Territory. All that we can siy is, that if the Eng lish manufacturers do not put up for the expenses of the Cleveland campaign they will show anch a sordid meanness and in gratitude that promises poorly for those who would place aDy fature dependence on them. AMONG THE WOLVERINES. Tbe Démocrate party relies upon Thur man to elect Cleveland. Though standing second oil the ticket, he is first in ability, experience and statesmanship. It is Cleve land for lock, and Thurman for brains, as the patent combination is usually repre sented by the'discoverers. To stem Ghe tide that has tuurued so strongly against the free trade ticket at the east, or rather, to seak to make up else where, what is irretrievably lost in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey; it is thought possible to capture some northern state, and Michigan has been selected as the site of the experi ments. The "brains'' of the democratic party has been transported to Port Huron to enlighten the Wolverines irpon the great pending issue. We have read every word of the three column report aDd have failed to observe a single likeness of an argument that has not been on exhibition for genera tions and worn threadbare. The fact that Thurman cannot say a thing to prove that free trade is for the in terest of the American people goes far to convince ns that there is nothing to be said ou that side. Against all that has been said or can be said in support of the policy of free trade, we put in answer, a country that is with out precedent, the most prosperous, the richest, strongest in the world. Whea our people are told that protection is ruining our country, exhausting our resources by exce-sive taxation, they simply look around them and see the falsity of the assertion published everywhere. Because Mr. Thurman is a candidate for Vice-President does not release him from obligations to speak the truth. Yet he is reported to have said "Our opponents say it is better to let the surplus accumulate." ► He has never heard any such thing from a single one of his opponents in or out of Congress, and he certainly knows that such a statement con'ains a falsehood. The Re publicans universally demand that the so called surplus be applied to the redaction of the public debt. For a while the sec retary of the treasury pretended that he was doubtful of his authority to buy bonds. Both houses of Congress assured him to go ahead, his authority was ample. Bat still the surplus is growing and bonds are offered daily by the million, and refused because the price is unsatisfactory. If some poor soldier or widow is turned away to suffer or starve, we are told how careful this admiuittra tion is of the public revenues, and yet millions are being lost by allowing money to lie idle in the treasury or to be used with out charge by favored banks, rather than purchasing bonds and stopping or saving part of the interest. This adminis tration is "penny economical and pound extravagant." Thurmaa ought to be ashamed of him self lbr repeating the Munchausen false hood that our people were paying a billion in indirect taxes on home made goods on account of the duty on foreign goods. The originator of that tale won the badge for being the greatest liar of the age. Perhaps Thurman will tell ns sometime when he gtts over his sea-sicknes3, how a nation of consumers e ver did or could get rich, that neglected its producers. The statement, if true, would he an argument for absolute free trade and a resort to di rect taxation which is popular and Demo cratic. Thurman's indirect and unintenrional tribute to the soundness of Republican policy appears in the statement of the vast totil of goods produced in this country of the same kind as those imported. But for the tariff we should not be making any of those $5,369,579,191 worth of goods. Even if t îe people paid the imaginary taxon the home manufactures, they were several billions ahead in the transaction. If Thurman escaped sea-sickness for his stomach it must be that it affected his brain. Candidate Thurman is distressed over the heavy burdens that the tariff lays upon the poor blacks of the South. If any one wants to improve the condition of the Southern blacks he would give them in creased intelligence by education, so that their labor might become more productive and diversified. Notwithstanding the thousands that have been shot for attempting to vote as they desired, the numbers of the Southern blacks have increased 50 per cent since the war. (One wouldn't suspect this from the vote.) This would not indicate any great degree of privation. The southern whites have not increased as fast. As long as ihe South does nothing but cultivate its soil in the most unthrifty style by ignorant and degraded labor it has no right or reason to expect anything else hut poverty and weakness. The Independent says that the Fisheries treaty was nothing but what grew out of a contest betweu the "blue noses'' of the Dominion and the "blue bellies" of New England. It might at least have added the administratioa and the Democratic party took the side of the foreigner. A government that deserves the affectionate attachment of its own subjects or the re spect of foreigners, would protect with all its resources the life and fortunes of a sin gle American citizen in any part of the world, but this administration and its sup porters are willing to see hundreds of fish ermen of several states run over by Cana dian cruisers and will not lift a hand to protect them.__ The agricultural exhibition this year does not do justice to Montana and would in fact leave a very unfavorable impression of the productive capacity of our soil. We presume there are single ranches in the Teiritory that could make a better display ) after the crops are ripe and the harvesting completed. We can see no other way so advantageous as to have the races by them selves earlier and a genuine, creditable ag ricultural exhibition later iu the season ; certainly it should be late enough for crops generally to get ripe. as A GOOD MESSAGE. The rejection of the Fisheries treaty by the Senate has called forth a message that does some credit to the man who wrote it as well as to the one who signed it. Finding ihe treaty unpalatable to the coun try and only supported in the Senate by political friends to save the administration from humiliating defeat, a new tack is taken which we hope will be heartily sec onded by the Republicans, and the presi dent given the fuliett latitude for retaliation even to the extent of suspending all intercourse with the Dominion. If it comes to war all the better. It will torce us to build a navy and annex Canada. Bayard complains that the Senate did not even attempt to amend his treaty as it did in the case with China and is gener ally customary iu all negotiations. Surely it was a stunning rebuke and went as much to the manner ot appointing commis sioners as to the entire scope, spirit and substance of the treaty. A more complete and intentional rebuke was never admin istered to a minister of state and it is fair to say none was ever better merited. The evident bluff contained in the message will be heartily relished as a good joke. We are only surprised that in this mock heroic , indignation Cleveland did not threaten to withdraw his free trade mes sage and go with the Republicans for pro tection. We hope he will be accommodated with all the authority he can use or may suggest while in this humor. This toadying to a brutal Tory aristocracy and apparent fear of the constant enarliDg and snapping of the little Dominion poodle is too much to he relished as a constant diet. Give us a change ; non-intercourse, re taliation in kind and full measure; war if need be to the uttermost and for all there is out. Any of these will be better than perpetual insult and increasing insolence. There is no particular need of any treaty between nations. There is a more general law ot intercourse and of higher sanction than any treaty, and that is to treat others as we are treated. If we can not carry oa peaceable intercourse with Canada to mutual interest and satisfaction, then let us cease all intercourse. We could very well survive if all intercourse ceased for a time. Of course such a stale of things would only be temporary. It would soon lead to a better understanding or open war. While not thirsting for war, as our neighbor intimates, there are many consid erations to relieve our anxieties and regrets over such a calamity. It would be a war that would cost us more money than blood. We should lose much, but we think we would gaiu more. There would be no long and biuercontestbetween the United States and Canada. It would not be possible. The inevitable would scon be recognized and accepted. With all England's boasted strength, she is the most assailable from the sea of any nation in the world. Her possessions lie scattered all over the earth ; she has more wealth afloat than any other country; her factories would close and her people starve if cut oil' from constant sup plies. These exposures would seem to be enough to deter even a Tory government from war, hut it is just as well known that an internal, irrepressible conflict is going on between the aristocratic and popular elements of the English nation that would improve the occasion of foreign complica tions to demand a settlement. England is a great power built up on a narrow base and a violent storm will surely upset it and the world will wonder chiefly that it stood so long. So well is England's weakness and ex posure to attack known by her own lead ing men that wc have no fear of war on account of any claims of Canada, or even for the empty title of sovereignty of the whole Dominion. THE FUTURE OF THE FAIR. The utter failure of the Territorial Fair this year in every respect save that of a racing association presents the question whether it shall continue as at present or attempt to accomplish the professed pur pose of its organization and what its name indicates. Certainly Montana needs an agricultural fair. She needs it more to day than when the organization was first formed. She will need it more every year. We have agricultural resources of immense value to develop, and it would be to our interest to advertise them. We have better facilities each year to gather our people and collect for exhibition the products of our soil and mines. We have nothing to say against the rac ing department. Let it continue as a spe cial department, but the meeting for that purpose could better be fixed at an earlier date, while that for the agricultural de partment should certainly be fixed at a date late enough to await the harvest, if the fruits of the season are to be shov«n The compromise is bad for both, hut fatal to the purpose of an agricultural exhibi t'oD. The last week in September would be early enough lor an Agricultural Fair. And a month earlier for the races would be equally advantageous lbr them. The Association is in condition, and we think iu duty bound, to make trial of the matter on this uew line of departure. We do not find fault with the Directors. They have a hard, delicate, responsible work to do, and they have done it well under the circumstances. Their first con sidérât on was to make it self-supporting, and they have followed the teachings of experience till they have accomplished that object. But that is not enough. It should faithfully serve and help to de velope the agricultural and stock resources of Moutata. Hon. L. M. Potter, chairman of the Pro], hibition central committee of LeSenre county, Minn., two years ago, and the can didate for representative of the party at that time, has declared himself for Harri son and Morton. The county at the last election gave the third party 500 votes, which will be reduced to one-third the number in November, Mr. Potter thinks. Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. PREMIUM TAKERS.
