What Will Prove a Boomerang
When the Facts are Known.
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.

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
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.

Mr. Smith's statement in this morniug's
Independent. Mr. R. B. Smith did know
that I was Mr. Carter's attorney in said

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

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
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 Republicans have carried tl^ city

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

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.

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

ocrat with one exception.
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

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

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
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
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.
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

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
The morning paper represents Word as
"hnmorou8ly picturing Mr. Carter in Con
gress demanding the repeal of the Mills

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.

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

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
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.

Cheap prices mean low wafges. Large
