DAVIS, of West Virginia. THEY ARE FRIGHTENED When Mr. Knox was chosen to suc ceed Quay, there was much rejoicing among the Wall street element, but there was also much jeering among the honest and impetuous "busters of trusts" who had pinned their faith on Knox. That Mr. Knox was the real mover against the illegal combi nations made it necessary for Presi dent Roosevelt to remove the Attor ney-general and substitute a less ac tive man in that position. Mr. Roose velt's attitude all through his.admin istration has proven his interests to be with illegal and immoral wealth, while on the .other hand the demo crats have nominated a man to head their ticket who has fairly frightened the republicans into a run. Few men in American pubitc life are so moral in their political methods as Judge Parker. He is the active, healthy, honorable American on a large scale, therefore what he outlines for him self to do, and what he does is in stinctively understood and approved of by the average honest American. President Roosevelt was thrown from his horse one day last week, lit on the back of his head, got up and assured his wife that he was all right and was soon in the saddle again. Harlem News. The president was fortunate in lighting on that particular part of his anatomy, otherwise it might have affected his mind. A girl in Butte hesitates before ac cepting the hand of a wealthy suitor. While she may not be lost, she is likely to become an old maid. JUST AN OVERSIGHlT. At last evening's meeting of the city council City Attorney Hammond made a slight error when stating to the fathers "he was of the opinion that city printing came under the laws provided by the county commis sioners." In this the city attorney was mistaken, although we believe unintentionally. On page 212, session laws of 1897, identical with the code of 1895, the law reads: "To provide for the city or town print ing, the contract of which must be let to the lowest bidder." Should the city fathers desire to pass an ordinance regulating the length of time a paper must be estab lished in the city, it is their privilege to do so, but up to date no such or dinance has been passed. It can be seen by this that the city council exceeded their authority in contracting to give the Plaindealer the city printing for the ensuing two years. At this time there are a num ber of important ordinances which makes immediate publication neces sary. Might it not be well for the city fathers to see that they are pub lished legally and according to the laws that regulate city printing? During the next few years the creamery industry will show remark able progress in this section of the state. Heretofore it has, been con sidered that dairying was out of the question in the northern part of the state. Today, in the Bear Paws, Chinook, Harilemr and other places along the line, ranchers are beginning to see it is to their interest to go into the dairy bnsiness more heavily than heretofore, and they will more natur ally take advantage of the great op portunities of going into cattle rais ing for butter purposes. A creamery will soon be built at Chinook and as a result thousands of dollars will be contributed to the wealth of that section during the next year or two. Here's hoping that Havre will be next to take up the creamery indus try. The frightful railroad wreck in Col orado this week in which nearly a hundred people lost their lives, adds another terrible catastrophe to the long list of disasters which have be fallen the nation since the beginning of the year. When the history of 1904 is written the list of calamities will overshadow all previous years since the birth of America. Most of the lamentable disasters this year have been due to accidents in which no one was directly to blame, but can not in any way be credited to the good equipment of railroads or the careful inspection of other public places where people congregate, on the part of those who are in a way re sponsible. Judge Parker was officially notified of his nomination yesterday and awakened the sleeping politicians to campaign enthusiasm. Our idea of a strenuous life is for a woman to hold up her end of society while the baby is cutting his teeth. Twelve per cent of the total area of Montana, amounting to 11,844,45 acres, is in farm.
