DEMOCRATIC VICTORY CERTAIN.
The nomination of that eminent
j"urist, Judge Parker, for president,
makes Deminocratic victory not only
within reach, but almost an absolute
certainty. The hope and belief for
such a victory lies in the fact that
for the first time in eight years the
Democratic party is united through
out the nation. Bryan was twice
handicapped by a split that support
ed the Republican nominee on ac
count of Bryan's free silver doctrine.
Since then the gold standard has be
come a fact, and the east and west
finally concluded in convention not to
raise or agitate the question at all,
and omitted placing any financial
plank in the platform. This was a
happy settlement that all agreed to,
and therefore there is no split in the
party; all standing squarely upon the
platform and all pulling for victory.
A very different prospect than in 1896
and 1900. In the place of division
and uncertainty, we find that every
Democrat in the union can put his
shoulder to the wheel and push. Im
perialism, as taught and practiced by
Roosevelt, is going to take a backset
in this country: High tariff protec
tion as upheld by the "stand-patters"
is going to be revised in the interest
of the consumers instead of being
kept at a high tention in the interest
of the trusts. The trusts organize
because of the opportunity to corner
trade under a high protective tariff.
Millionaires galore have sprung up
at the expense of labor, which gets
only the small end of the profits.
When the Philippine islands were
conquered by the sword, the Republi
can cry was cheap binding twine. To
day Philippine hemp and sisal are in
the hands of a trust and the price is
higher than before Dewey entered
Manila bay. The Republicans say
the constitunion follows the flag, but
we say the trusts follow the sword.
Everything, including coffins, pays
tribute to the trusts. The trusts
burden both the living and the dead.
Roosevelt is called a "trust buster."
What trust has he busted? Attorney
General Knox made a few moves in
that direction and has been traded
off and another man put in his place.
There seems to have been a fear that
Knox might really antagonize the
rLusts if let alone. Let Democrats
organize everywhere. Form clubs at
once. Get on your fighting clothes
and work and when November comes
we will raise a shout of victory that
will make tyrants tremble.
The Iowa Democratic state conven
tion held at Iowa City this week was
one of harmony and enthusiasm. The
convention unanimously ratified their
declaration of principles of the demo
cratic national convention and en
dorsed the candidacy of A. B. Parker
for president and H. G. Davis for
vice president. The same can be said
of all the states. The democrats are
united this year all over the union
and the protective tariff trusts can
not escape the pitfalls that beset their
Will Parker carry New York? The
gold Democrats who voted for McKin
ley will now vote for Parker because
gold is not an issue. Parker will get
the solid vote and his popularity
throughout that state will catch
many Republicans who have estrayed
from the Roosevelt policy.

Roosevelt and Fairbanks, he said they
had nominated "a bunch of firecrack

Bryan didn't bolt. He carried his
point on the platform committee and
will support the nominee faithfully.

A complaint was sworn out tonight
for the arrest of three men, supposed
to be deserters from the post, on the
charge of grand larceny. Mrs. Evans,
colored, had hired a livery of Winm.
Swanton and drove it to the post to a
dance. The rig was missing when
she was ready to go home and has not
yet been located. Three soldiers were
missing at the post this morning and
are supposed to be the parties who
took the rig. Marshal Francis is now
on their trail.
W. E. Donovan, the architect from
Great Falls, was in the city Tuesday
on business relating to the plans for
the new Hotel Havre. The directors
have asked for sketches from several
architects and those sending them in
are J. W. Ross, of Grand Forks, N.
D., W. E. Donovan, of Great Falls,
and Gibson & Shanley, of Kalispell,
while others are expected from St.
Paul. A meeting of the old Hotel
company has been called and will
meet this week to turn over to the
new company the corporation papers,
and the new set of officers, directors
and members will be elected.
Movement on Foot to Strengthen

As soon as the necessary stationer
arrives two fire companies will be o
ganized in the city. One compan
will be stationed at the city hall and
the other in a central location in
It is the intention of Mayor New
man, after the companies are organ
ized, to interest the members in the
work by making the department a
social as well as useful organization.
Regular drills will be held, and to
make the drill work real interesting,
the two companies will compete for
honors as fire fighters.
This has been a much needed orga
nization in Havre, and with two com
panies of sturdy young men there is
no reason why Havre should not have
a good fire department.
The fire which occured on Monday
night again demonstrates to the city
fathers the need of a good fire alarm.
Were it not for the electric com
pany's whistle it would be a hard
matter to get out the fire workers.
The suggestion has been made that
the city purchase a good fire siren and
place it. on .the r.elet c~mPanywa

In this manner the fire laddies would
not be compelled to run from one end
of the city to the other, then tack

Some difficulty is being- exper
ced in selling the bonds on account
f a legal defect in advertising the
sale. The advertisement stipulated a
$26,500 issue of sewer and water bonds,
but did not specify what proportion
would be expended for sewer, and
what proportion for water. The wa

been advertised as two separate prop
ositions and for that reason no one
will accept them, and in consequence
a special election may have to be
A proposition may be submitted to
the council, however, to raise the
money in Havre, which will not nec
essitate an election for two years.
The electric light matter and the
work of platting new additions to the
city of Havre, will also be discussed.
The bids for the new First Nation
al Bank building were opened on Sat
urday evening last, but no action was
taken by the building committee.
The bids ranged from $13,000 to $15,

contract has not been let.
