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 way. 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. .Itris orxe -a-Shate ;wsthha n M. DePew heard of the nomination of Roosevelt and Fairbanks, he said they had nominated "a bunch of firecrack ers and a long damp stick of punk." Chauncy is a Republican U. S. sena tor of New York. Bryan didn't bolt. He carried his point on the platform committee and will support the nominee faithfully. With all hands united, this is a Democratic year. Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Pancoast cele brated the tenth anniversary of their wedding Tuesday. 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. HAVRE'S .FRE DEPARTMENT Movement on Foot to Strengthen the Fire Department. Will Reorganize. 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 East Havre. 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 ianfndiiF wheaii ire occurs have the engineer at the plant first blow the number of the ward two or three times, then sound an alarm, then 3: For every Seventyfive Cents you spend with us you get a Dollar's Worth of clothing. We prefer to keep Spring Stock moving and at any cost. We would rather count the money than inventory the stock. "THE HUB" LOCATED ON 4th STREET, blow the number of the ward again. In this manner the fire laddies would not be compelled to run from one end of the city to the other, then tack again, to find the fire. Council Busy. e City Council met Tuesday and adjourned until Thursday ng, at which time the water and r system bond issue will be taken 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 ter and sewer bond issue shcuald, have 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 called. 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, 000. but up to the present time the contract has not been let. -.nvu-krot wMOour - ºnasi . "I.
