DAVIS, of West Vrginia,, "HOW SHALL WE DO?" Like the young man who came to Elisha, the prophet, the Republican press of the state stand before their imperialistic masters and cry: "Alas, my master! how shall we do?" They are told not to pry blind eyes open, but to go forth and proclaim that Roosevelt "is intensely patriotic, scru pulously honest, an enemy of corpora tions and a friend of organized labor." 'They do not discuss, argue or comment on important national issues, but pro duce the lone argument of "victory" as they laud the name of their mas ter. If the old prophet had been schooled in one of our modern political cam paigns, he would, no doubt, have put into the hands of the Republican press a prayer book, with a few words regarding the color of goggles they must wear in order to translate the same correctly. "Roosevelt is intensely patriotic." So is every citizen who has the rich, red American blood in his veins. "Roosevelt is the friend of organi zation or individual whose motives are honest." In what way has he been their friend? By representing an adminis tration whose history has been one of labor strikes and bloodshed; whose condition called for national interfer ence, but was denied even a hearing and no pretense made to meet out justice to the guilty parties. "That the best interests of the most people is the standard by which Roosevelt weighs and decides all pub lie questions." By placing a high protective tariff on western products; centralizing cap ital and building up a nets work of combines and trusts that threaten ev ery individual enterprise. It is evi dent the president considerers that the monoplies are in the majority, but it is also evident that the producers and laborers will weigh a few public questions and decide to relieve his "dletatorship" of the responsibility before November. Democrats are united this 'year throughout the nation. They will not stand still and cry, "Let well enough alone," but will organize in every community and go forward with a determination to remove the mill stone that has been hanging to the neck of both producer and indi vidual during Roosevelt's administra tion. A bandit chief of Morocco captured an American and a British subject, and demands for their safe return a bounty of several thousand dollars. The incident has become internation al. The United States dispatched a fleet of war vessels to the Mediter ranian sea, at an expense of several million dollars. The U. S. is touchy about looking after its subjects in for eign ports, but pays absolutely no at tention to the capture and confine ment of its own subjects in bull pens in Colorado. If Moyer was confined in a bull pen in Morocco you would s3e strenuous Teddy bestirring him self with San Juan suddenness. The name of Col. J. H. Rice, of Benton, has been mentioned by the republican press of the state as a probable candidate for the nomina tion to the office of state treasurer. The prominent republicans of this lo cality express themselves as emphati cally opposed to the nomination of the colonel for certain uncalled for re marks he made derogatory to the character of our little city. If the colonel goes into convention with a delegation from his own county, he will have to devote his entire atten tion to explaning "hew old is Ann." Last year the United States Steel Corporation employed 168,000 men. The number now on the payrolls is said to be less than 140,000, and many of them are only working on a part time scale. It is the plan of the com pany to distribute its work among as many employes as possible. The work now being done would not furnish full time employment, it is estimat ed, to 100,000 men. The Cotton mills in New England are also working on part time to a large extent, and some of them have shut down altogether. In Lowell, Mass., alone, there are 20, 000 idle operatives. It may surprise smokers of pure Ha vana fillers to know that the weeds which they have been consuming are made from cabbage and celery plants. This fact has been brought out dur ing the strike of the cigar makers in Chicago, and has been in vogue since 1898. How pure minded the average capitalist is, can be judged from the sort of stuff he palms off on the pub lic. The somber quietude that surrounds Mr. Fairbanks would indicate that he had been up against a shell game. SHOP MEN WILL PICNIC Plans Are Perfected for the Gala Event of the Year.--Excur sion to Great Falls. Saturday morning at 6:00 o'clock a special train consisting of five coaches will convey Great Northern railroad and shop employes to Great Falls to their first annual picnic, which will take place at Black Eagle Park in the afternoon. Every possible arrangement has been made by the machinists to make the event a long-to-be-remembered one. The different committees have been busy all the week and have pre pared a unique and elaborate pro gram for the entertainment of visit ors. The Citizen's Band of Havre, con sisting of twenty-seven pieces, will accompany the picnickers, as will also the Havre ball team, who will play the Mavericks of Great Falls. O. H. Webber and John Robinson, of the arrangement committee, were in Great Falls Saturday and report that the hospitality of. the city will be extended to the visitors. At 6:00 o'clock in the evening the trolley cars will take the visitors about the city, and during the afternoon refresh ments will be served on the park grounds by the-park managers. Chairman J. M.
