Billings, Mont., Nov. 5.—[Special to the Herald].—The following statement comes from Hon. E. C. Waters in answer to the recent bushwhacking attack upon him. instigated, as supposed, by bis Demo cratic contestant for the legislature: My appeal is to all fair-minded, jnstice-loving, truth-hearing, lie-condemning, trick-detest ing people of Dawson and Yellowstone counties from the mean, contemptible, scurilons, under-handed attack upon me at a time when it was thought to be too late for me to say a word in my own defense. The enemy have sought to employ the assassin's mode of attack so recently em ployed in our own county of Yellowstone, in the removal of a respected citizen from oar midst, bat murder will out and when it comes let no guilty man escape. The following letter was the first intimation I had that the back door kitchen politicians were on the road: St. Haul, Minn., Oct. 12, 1888.— E. C. Water », Sir: Coming through Livingston I met somepoliticians from Miles City and Billiags. They were working Livingston and 1 found out they were going to Helena to find discharged employes of the 1'ark to get them to sign some affidavits and they are going to use them against yon this next election. I thought this would be of some interest to you. I heard the whole conversation. Hoping this will reach you in time and be of some benefit to you. Youas respectfully, James Heiney. Replying to these several affidavits I will take them in their order. George Grant was discharged from the employ of the Yellowstone Park Associa tion lor stealing and selling goods. I have his receipt for work in fall. Tillie Walters and Lizzie O'Brien were chargd their railroad fare in accord ance with the contract they entered in to l>efore they were employed in St. Paul. As to Annie Johnson, I hold a receipt from her agent for the amount due her, she leaving my employ without giving any notice, and her account was settled with her authorized agent. Eva Marvin was paid in accordance with the contract entered into when she was employed by Mr. E. Donglass. As to Frank McAvoy, all men employed by him signed contracts and were settled with m accord an ae with said contract. As to Mr. Murphy being engaged for $65 and paid $50, the contract shows that $50 was the amount McAvoy agreed to pay .«aid Morphy. There has never been any notice served on me of any suit being commenced in the aI>ove cases. As a token of my good faith I ill make the following offer: For every dollar that any of the above parties can prove in any court of Justice that I owe them I will willingly pay $25. E. C. Waltebs. a WAS IT A SPEECH ? The Candidate who is Connected with a Good Story Told at Elkhorn. Notwithstanding he has been playfully referred to as "Wee Willie Wallace," "Mr. Toole's law clerk," and such, the Demo cratic candidate who aspires to the dignity of Joint Representative is a pretty large sized political gun—when his own word is taken for it. Willie ha# spoken pieces here and there dnring the campaign, and some of them have been rather long and prosy—so at tenuated, in fact, as to make his hearers tired. To illustrate, a story is told of him at Elkhorn, where he tried the patience of his audience by the "greatest effort of his life." When he was done he climbed down from the platform and mixed with the crowd, seeking for some one to tell him what a good speech he had made. No one seemed prepared to express himself offhand, so Willie approached in his winsome way a burly miner and wanted to know what he thought of his address. " Well, my son," replied the mining man, " to be frank with you, you spoke too long. A smart man would have made that epeei^i —if that's what you call it—in an hour; a really smart man would have made it in half an hour, and a first-class, bang up, level beaded smart man wouldn't have made that speech at all." An explosion followed, the listening crowd breaking loose in a roar of langhter. "Now, my boy," added the paternal old man, "my advice, seeing you stand in need of it, is this: Whenever you go to make a speeeh again first hold a caucus with your self and find out what you are going to talk al>out and then say it quick." Then tlyere was more mirth at the ex pense of the youthful Demosthenes. Then there were drinks, also at his ex pense, and Willie soon faded from view in the Elkhorn camp. The consciousness of having a remedy at hand for croup, pneumouia, sore throat, ami sudden colds, is very consoling to a parent. With a bottle of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral iu the house, one feels, in such cases, a sense cf security nothing else can give. STERLING VS. SMITH. Mr. Clark's Attorney Has a Defective Memory. Helena, November 3.—[Editor Herald.J —One word more as to that "missing let ter." "Putting it mild," I am surprised at Mr. Smith's statement in this morniug's Independent. Mr. R. B. Smith did know that I was Mr. Carter's attorney in said contest case He (Smith) did 'enow that the papers were in my possession. He did consent and agree with me to withdraw the papers from the Helena land office, and went with me to said office for that purpose, and lor no other. The said papers were never filed in said land office, as stat ed by Mr. Smith, as they will show. The said letter was not "marked private" as he states, but "Strictly confidential." I do not wish to he held responsible for what Mr. Smith don't know. F. P. Stebing. Corroborating the above is the following statement Horn Mr. Burton, ex-receiver of the land office. Helena, Nov. 3:—I remember distinct ly the contest against Mr. Carter's desert land entry. I remember Mr. Smith ap peared as attorney for contestants and F. P Sterling appeared for Mr. Carter aud - leitsrs. Smith and Sterling appeared at the •*nd office together and settled and dis missed the proceedings in that [case. The papers could not have been taken from s ' ! '.d office, by either attorney, except by consent of both parties.

I From the Dally Herald of November 6. The Parade and Meeting Last Night. Notwithstanding the unfavorable weath er the Republican hosts of Helena were out in force last evening. There were no superfluous torches and no hired torch hearers. The zeal of the cause brought men to the ranks long before the appointed hoar lor the procession to move and the same zeal kept them waiting palriently for the signal to move. The proud step with which the different corps fell into line did good to every beholder and was an augury of coming victory. Col. Kinsley and his efficient aids were at every needed point, giving what few orders were necessary to bring the host into their appointed piaces. It was a grand sight, when the march be gan from Court House Square and led the way down Ewing street to Seventh avenue and there turned into Rodney street. Many of the private houses were brilliant ly illuminated and gaily decorated with flags and Chinese lanterns. Rodney street furnished a fine op portunity to display the grand procesBion and when the head of the line reached Bridge street the rear had not yet de bouched from Seventh avenne. Shooting and singing were continuous. Again the grand procession showed its vast propor tions, reaching through Main street from Bridge to Price street. Arrived at the up per end of Benton avenne, the line opened and the rear columns marched to the front with the mounted marshals followed by the Helena band. Mutual cheers followed the continued movement, bon fires, torches, colored lightB and sky-climbing rockets lighted up the heavens and shed a halo of coming victory over the prond and enthusi astic host. There were probably, as near as can be computed, between eleven and twelve hundred men in line. And they were all residents of the city, no visiting delega tions and nearly every one a voter. Com pared with the Democratic procession of Saturday night, it was nearly twice as large, and that was more than half made up of outsiders. At the Rink, or Armory Hall, a host of ladies and gentlemen escorts had already well filled the spacious room before the marching host entered and soon filled every available nook and »orner on the ground floor and the galleries. The stage and every portion of the room was hand somely hung with flags. The sides of the room, from every panel, displayed a picture of Gen. Harrison. Beautiful flowers fur nished a baok ground of beauty and fragrance to the stage. Cheer after cheer in one continuous round broke sponta neously from the enthusiastic assemblage. When Mr. Carter entered, escorted by the chairman of the Territorial Committee, the cheering was continuous and universal for some minutes. Mr. Davis read the list of selected vice-presidents and the stage was soon filled to its utmost ca pacity. When the arrangements were all completed, the lights were extingnshed for a moment to allow an enterprising photo grapher to take a picture of the stage by an instantaneous flash process. Chairman Hershfield then in a few chosen words introduced the Republican standard bearer of the campaign, Thomas H. Carter, whose appearance again dieted rounds of applanse. After six weeks of continuous travel and hard work, speak ing several times each day and never miss ing an appointment, there was universal surprise and pleasure in seeing the speaker looking so fresh and still in good voice. In Mr. Carter's speech there were no at tempts at flowery eloquence to divert at tention from the main issue, which he stated briefly and illustrated aptly, so that no one could mistake the difference be tween the two parties asking the suffrages and verdict of the American people. This difference was clearly stated to be, not the amount of revenue to be raised, but on the method of assessing it. The Republican policy was to impose the dnties chiefly upon such articles as coaid be made in this country in order to protect American labor. Applying this principal to Montana, the speaker showed that it was the rare good fortune of our Terrisory that we had natural diversified interests, never liable in any one season to be involved in general disaster. Oar mines were a constant sonree of wealth to us summer or winter, though our cattle or sheep might suffer oecasional extraordinary loss, and our harvests be de stroyed by drouth or grasshoppers. Beautifully Decorated. The Republican parade last night—the largest ever witnessed in Helena—was en thusiastically greeted along the whole line of march. The decoration of a 'great num ber of the homes of the city were elaborate and magnificent, residences on Ewing, Rod Bey, Benton and other streets being partic ularly noticeable aud drawing cheer upon cheer from the marching procession. It was once supposed that scrofula could not be eradicated from the system; but the marvelous results produced by the use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla disprove this theory. The reason is, this medicine is the most powerful blood-purifier ever discovered. The Best and Handsomest of All. Send ten cents io E. A.

The Republicans have carried tl^ city county, Territory and country, and have a right to be proud and happy. Every one who worked, spoke, wrote or voted for the Republican ticket is entitled to a share of «redit, while even our opponents will share with ns the benefits of the general result and prosperity. The issue was clearly drawn and well understood, and there is no mistake how the people stand on the question of protection and free trade. The whole North wants it and the whole Sooth needs it. Nobody need lament except those whç> wanted the antaxed benefit of onr markets. The working mac and the capitalist may re' joice, for it means prosperity to all The miner and the sheep-grower, the cattlemen and the agricnltnralists may congratulate one another that the crisis of onr destinies is past. Before another pres idential election there will be a new oensns and the power of the North will be rela tively so mach increased that there will be no motive, even if there is an opportuity to keep up a Solid south. THE ZIGZAG OF IT. A Republican President. A Republican Vice President. A Republican Congress. A Republican Delegate for Montana. A Republican Legislature for Montana. Republican officers far most of the conn ties. Protection for American industries. Protection for American labor. No free raw material. No foreign made goods. AX EARLY HARVEST. Messrs. Wallace and Thornburg report $30,000 real estate deal already, on accoant of the result of the election. Every acre of land, every foot of city property, every head of sto?k, and every ponnd of wheat and potatoes, every pound of iron, lead copper or silver ore in the Territory is worth more as a result of the election. So too is manhood and Statehood worth more. DEATH OF ALEX. J. ELDER. The news of the death of our old friend A. J. Elder, of Bsnlder City, on Thursday evening last, November 1, conveyed to us by letter of his devoted and afflicted widow, was the first intimation of his sick ness. The disease of which he died[[was lumbago and we have no particulars of the time that he was sick or any cir cumstances attending his sickness. Mr. Elder himself we have known for many years in Montana and he has been a frequent contributor to the columns of the Herald. Before coming to the Territory, Mr. Elder was connected with the Indianapolis Sentinel, as its chief editor, we believe, and never lost his in terest in the newspaper press. In Mon tana he has been engaged in mining, hav' ing, as we understand, considerable interest in several valuable quartz lodes. In addi tion, he has filled several public positions in Jefferson county, such as Justice of the the Peace, Superintendent of Schools and has for years been general conveyancer for the whole Boulder valley. He was a man of more than ordinary ability, of sterling character and a useful, honored citizen, whose loss will be long and generally felt among those whom he has served so long in many ways. He married a few years since, a most es timable lady, who came from the east as a teacher in our public schools. His married life was a happy one and we tender onr warmest sympathy to his bereaved widow. It looks as if the Solid Sonth had ruu its head against a solid North with about the same result as befell the ram that under took to butt a locomotive off the track. Such a result was sure to come. It was natural and will prove healthy. Now let the South go to work to develop her own resources, educate her people, invite in skilled labor, raise and manufacture what she needs for consump tion, and she will soon overtake lost ground and be forever grateful to the Re publican party, for having opened for her the way to prosperity. Seventeen years ago L. H. Herschfield was chairman of the Republican Territo rial Committee, and the Republicans won with Wm. H. Claggett. Mr. Herschfield is the chairman of the committee again and for a second time the Republicans win, with Thos. H. Carter for the standard bearer. Montana is in harmony with the admin istration—and the administration is m harmony with Montana—and still farther Mantana votes on harmony with her own interests. With all the power and patronage of the nation with which to persuade and coerce the voters, Democracy fails utterly to cram Southern free trade down the throats of the American people. The days •f Calhoun Democracy are over. We know our friends of the Left Wing will thank the Herald when it advises them to imitate the home Missourians and learn how to assert their manhood and learn how to become patriots and Republi cans. So far from its being true that the wool growers of Texas are supporting Mills, the contrary is the fact. Says Mr. E. Dickey of Waco, a wool dealer: "I know of bnt one wool man who is for Mills." Says J. R. Riggins who introduced the resolution denouncing Mills and his bill in the Cen tral Texas Live Stock Association: "There were bnt two votes against the resolution and every man at the meeting was a dem ocrat with one exception. a THE MAX OF DESTIXY. We have heard many Democrats base their confidence of Cleveland's re-election upon the fact that Cleveland was a man of destiny and had never been defeated. The age of superstition has passed away. The old Romans were very superstitious and watched the flight of birds and many other natural phenomena, bnt they had good, hard sense as well, and won their victories by the strength of their legions, and never neglected to entrench their camps and choose their ground. Cbarlee the XII of Sweden, was a man of deetiny, bat he found his Paltowa. And so did Napoleon his Walterloo. Napoleon had the shrewdness to observe that Providence generally took the side of the heaviest artillery. Those who trust to lock will get left sooner or later, and so we think it will prove with Cleveland to-day. First im pressions are sacred to those who trust to lnck. It was Cleveland's first impression, and he embodied it in his first message that one term was the limit of a presi dent's ambition. We think that first im pressions will be realized in the result to day. In some respects Cleveland resembles Van Baren, though by no means his eqnal in ability. Bat like him, he has no warm personal followers or admirers. So long as Cleveland is considered a man rf destiny he is followed and worshipped as the be sotted worshipper of dumb idols. But the moment luck dese*s him he will be found without friends or admirers even in his own party. There is not an act or word of his life that will enkindle enthusiasm. His ad ministration is a perpetual exposure of his sham pretenses. There is not a feature of his domestic or foreign [policy, if he had any, that can attract enough attention to be recorded in history. If the country has survived without disaster and our pros perity has continued, it is because that prosperity has depended upon laws enacted by the Republicans and preserved in force by the steadfastness of a Republican Senate. While the nominal head and rnler of the nation, the solid South has been the power behind the throne and his ruler. At its dictation he has championed free trade as the price of renomination. If reelected the South will have good ground to boast that the surrender of Appomotox has been reversed and avenged. AN UNDYING CAUSE. The Democrats are fond of boasting that the Republican party has accomplished its mission and that one defect will witness its dissolution. So these syren songsters sang four years ago, bat they have to admit the struggle is fiercer and more doubtful this year than at the last presidential election, and that, too, with all the federal offices in their possession and the federal treasury on tap for their benefit. Those who do not stick in the bark and look be[ neath the surface of things will recognize that the Republican party represents a living and winning issue to-day just as mach as it did in 1860. Then it was the emancipation 9 of the slave and the preservation of the Union and its consecration to freedom. Now it is the emancipation of labor from the hard and grinding competition with cheap labor in foreign lands, This is a cause that cannot die and will as snrely win in the end as there is a God of Justice in heaven to prosper the right, and so long there is wisdom on earth to recognize the true source of national strength and wealth. Labor must be honored and well rewarded in order to be independent, intel ligent, skillful and productive. The gov ernment that protects its labor, guards the head fountain of all wealth. As the elder Pitt once said in the British Parliament he thanked God that the Americans had resisted British tyranny, so we say that we rejoice that American workmen sometimes strike. It may be a erode, inconvenient, expensive way of reaching results, bnt it is a sure sign of life and thought. Slaves don't strike. The ignorant and degraded do not strike. They lack conrage and intelli gence. But the day is coming when the workingman in this country will be uni versally regarded as a business partner. We are as proud of the higher wages paid in this country as of the credit of our government, attested by the premiun on .onr bonds. If protection does not protect, how is it that the production of pig iron in this country has increased from less than 1,000,' 000 to more than 7,000,000 tons, exceeding now that of England, while in the latter country [it has not doubled. That the dnty is not too high is proved by the fact that over $50,000,000 of iron and steel and their manufactures were imported from abroad last year. If that had all been pro duced in this country how much richer would we have been? How many more American workmen would have been em ployed? The greater part of it would have gone into the pockets of American work men. The morning paper represents Word as "hnmorou8ly picturing Mr. Carter in Con gress demanding the repeal of the Mills bill." Well, Mr. Carter will never be called npon to demand the repeal of the Mills bill, for the very good reason that it will never become a law. It will never pass the present Senate, and it is very doubtful if either Mills or his bill will be heard of in the next Congress. Grand Repablican rallies in Helena Batte, Great Falls, Livingston and else where closed the campaign in glorious form last night. To-day the electors are recording their verdict in the ballot boxes. With a fair election and honest count we eel confident of Repablican victory and the redemption of Montana from Demo cratic rale. Our friends, the enemy, aer working the baril for all there is in it, bat the Repabli can majority cannot be corrupted or over come, and the coant, this evening, will show it. Under the Secretary of the Treasury's circufcr of the 17th of April, nearly $90, 000,00# of government bends have been purchased, reducing the snrplns and the interest-bearing debt jnst that amount. The Democrats tell how much premium was paid for the bonds, bnt they do not say a word about the $25,000,000 of inter est that was saved on these bonds. If the $00,000,000 loaned to the banks without interest had been invested in the purchase of bonds, two-thirds as much more would have been saved. Sixteen millions is qnite an item, worthy of the attention of an economical)}' disposed administration. Breckinridge, of Kentucky, in an ar ticle in the November North American, claims that, under the Mills bill, northern productions, like wool or ores, are protected as much as southern productions, like sugar and rice. Mr. Breckinridge knows this statement to be false, for the Mills bill pats northern wool on the free list, while it pro tects southern sagar and riae. The Senate tariff bill is mach less sectional, for, with all the redactions made on sugar, it still protects it as mach, relatively, as it does wool. Between 1848 and 1861 the mines of California produced $690,000,000 in gold, bat ander the Democratic low tariff then prevailing it almost all went abroad to pay for foreign made goods. Since the protec tive tariff has been in operation, though our mines have yielded leæ and that most ly in silver, the stack of gold in the coun try has increased $500,000,000. The Globe-Democrat gives a full review of the situation in each county of the ninth Texas district aud figures out that Roger Q. Mills is going to be beaten by Jones, an Independent Protection Demo crat, who has the support of about one third of the Democrats, Union Labor, Pro hibitionists and the Republicans. In 1884, Mills' majority was 13,284, in 1886 5,823, in 1888 -. Cheap prices mean low wafges. Large imports means idle mines and factories and idle hands in America, with a constant outflow of gold, leaving us a glut of silver and a consequent decline of its vaine. Would this be of advantage to Montana's chief production ? A HAN who is ungrateful to his friends does not deserve to have any. The presi dent's discourteous dismissal of Minister West, who was trying his best to serve him, is as discreditable as anything among his long catalogue of discreditable acts. its its do a as a The Democrats lay it to treachery their own ranks. We accept this state ment for trnth, bat the treachery was Cleveland the Democratic leaders in Mon tana. They attempted to betray the in terests of the miner aud the stockmen The masses stood true to their own in teres ts. The returns indicate a total vote of 40,000 from Montana, and that indicates a population of at least 160,000. This vote is a better indication of our population than our governor's estimate. President Harrison will have a Re publican House of Representative, and Republican Senate to cooperate with him in giving the country a thorough-going Re publican administrationfrom stem to stern Says Grover to Dan, "Has that cheek of mine been paid?" Says Dan to Grover "The shrinkage of the surplus would so in dicate. It went into the pot, and the pot is in the fire." There will be foar new Repablican States with eight Senators and as many Representatives about as soon as the 51st Congress can do the business. The voters of Montana could not be bought. They prefer good wages every day in the year to big pay for one day and lean living for the rest of the year. The trouble with the Sonth is that she has too many statesmen to the area of her vote. The Barrel Candidate had all the fugle men with him, bnt only a few of the folks. The Federal Brigade fonght furiously— it was for the loaves and h shes—but the battle was futile for them. Was Gov. Leslie well informed when he stated in his official report that Montana wa9 in favor of free wool? We have lived to see Montana Republi can and are happy. We shall see her a State and shall be happier still. Thomas H. Carter's name is associa ted with that of William H. Claggett as Repablican delegate from Montana. For consolation the Democrats fall back on Great Falls, but great falls are coming so thick that their stomach weakens. The voters of Montana stood up for their interests and principles and are en titled to rejoice with sei f-reepecting pride. The man of destiny has met his Water loo. How is it to-day, hair? Sam! on free—raw— The South will be enfranchised a second time. Montana is Repablican to the core and don't you forget it Missouri stands perilously near the verge of Republicanism.
