NOT A POLITICAL ISSUE There is reason to believe that rep resentatives of ex-Senator Carter are iiot only trying to utilize the Mon tlana State Federation of Labor to further the interests of the republi can nominees of this state, but are al so plachig their representatives in dif ferent towns with a view to further ing the personal interests of certain republican aspirants. THE, HERALD recognizes the fact that, certain principles are involved among labor circles that require the united effort of all on the particular issue in question, but. to be made a catspaw of any political party is un fair by those who belong to labor un ions. It invariably' happens in election years that scheming politicians .of some party try to use the forces of la bor to pull their chestnuts out of the fire and to divert such association from the legitimate purposes which they were formed to promote. Those who take a friendly interest in labor and its organizations cannot help feeling regret when they see any effort made to prostitute societies of union men for political purposes. If the labor unions of Havre should be controlled by republican agents, the result may prove of some assis tance to the political party mentioned, but it, will not strengthen the organ ization in the eyes of the people of the state, nor will it make its position more powerful in aiding labor in this commonwealth. A society of this kind cannot very well serve two masters. It cannot successfully become a po litical organization as well as a labor one. If it desires to become an annex to the republican party of Montana, it, will lose its influence when it assumes to speak for labor. For the sake of its own reputation, -and in order that, the organization may continue to be an influential factor in Montana it is hoped that the delegates to the different organiztions will sit down upon the effort which is to be made to make the unions do the bidding of a few republican labor men who have political bees buzzidg in their craniums. Those members who respect the or ganization will resist every effort to prostitute it in the interest of any political party. You seldom meet a married man who thinks he knows it all.

THE ELOPERS ARE FOLLOWED Their Bridal Tour 1fay Be Beset With Pitfalls Early in the Game. Last week an article appeared in the columns of this paper to the effect that a fine sorrel team, hitched to a top buggy and wearing a new set of nickel plated harness and bearing marks of an exceedingly hard drive, had been found by Flavius Stacy tied to a fence. We further stated that there was evidence of a man and wo man having alighted from the rig, and it was the general surmise of the public that an elopement had taken place. As a matter of fact this latter statement proved to be the correct solution of the mystery. The team had been stolen from a liveryman of Medicine Hat by the name of Lawrence, and the thief was J. W. Wilson, who was once well known in this city, he having been employed as foreman at the Plain dealer office about two years ago, It is not known just who the woman was but it is understood that she was from Maple Creek, across the line. The eloping couple went from Ma ple Creek to Medicine Hat, where the team was stolen and driven to this point. They were seen to board the eastbound train here on the evening of August 16, but their destination could not be learned as they purchas ed no tickets. H. Lawrence, the owner of the team, was here this week and -recov ered his property, which was a very valuable outfit. No clue as to the whereabouts of the couple has as yet been secured, although the authorities along the line of the Great Northern have been notified of the theft and furnished with. a description of the eloping par ties..
