LABOR DAY Organized labor and its possibilities is a subject that has been discussed for many years, and yet, notwith standing the exhaustive manner in which it has been treated, we are forced to acknowledge that it is a topic which is ever ancient and al ways new. The industrial system is regulated by trade, therefore the labor unions must always be in a position to* cope with the exigencies created thereby. The country set apart special days for the purpose of perpetuating the fame and glory of its heroes and the celebration of its independence-and rightly so. In a like manper the toil ing millions of our land will celebrate the festival of Labor Day in a man her that will far surpass in grandeur and enjoyment all previous demon strations, for never in the history of the labor world has there been a more crucial period for the workers and their supporters than the one through which they are now passing. The distinguishing feature of la bor organization is its educational achievements, for the people are taught in the meetings that they are something more than human en gines for extracting gold from one part of the community and transfer ing it to the pockets of the other. They are taught to help all mankind and to estimate what can be done in the future for all classes. The countless thousands who march on Labor Day should be reminded that in order to advance they must learn the real lesson of unionism. It is a matter of decided moment both to those who direct great undertak ings and to those who take' part in therfi that there shall be a general and constant sense of good will and an activity that will anticipate and prevent all unnecessary failure. Let us march together, associate with one another and all join in mak ing Labor Day a joyful one. THERE IS NO ESCAPE. The protests against receiving our spiritual guidance from the republi can party falls on barren soil; the flow of superhuman goodness and charity is unimpeded. And at this season we not only hear the pious family sermons, but highly colored descriptions of how the G. O. P. will heap the dinner pails with all sorts of good things. It would be well for them in starting the campaign to se lect their sermon from First Timothy 6:10: "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil; which some reaching after have been led astray from the faith and have pierced them selves through with many sorrows." The people have become accustomed to see the republicans don their sol emn visage in campaign years, and -tell the youth of our honest land the dangers of adoring wealth and the horrors of pushing our own gain to the cost of our fellow man. Tell them also how contemptible a sin is hypocrisy,. and warn them. ner. to. takvuufaittr and cruelsateaga theVteler; never to, corrupt legisla tures; never to wring needless. mill ions from the necessities of the poor, and, to go one step farther, explain how beneath contempt it is, how sac rilegious and mean, for a wage earner to ask for representation in county, state and national government. MAJ.: MAGINNIS WILL ORATE A Great Program 'That All Will Assist in Making a Success of On Labor Day. Major Martin Maginnis, one of the early pioneers of Havre, and widely known throughout the state as an in teresting speaker whose heart is with the labor interests, will be here to take an important part in our Labor Day celebration and give the main address. Our local ministers will al so speak from the standpoint of labor and nothing but inclement weather can prevent a successful and never-to be-forgotten, labor event in Havre. Elsewhere in this issue will be found the line up of the procession as far as the committee could arrange, also the program of sports. While each union and business place will make a special effort to put an at tractive float in the procession, the Trades and Labor Assembly will en deavor to outclass them all. Their float will represent the delegates of the different unions of Havre, and forty little girls dressed in white, each emblematic' of Trades and Labor Assembly delegates will occupy apret tily decorated float. We print the names of the little misses that they may be in readinesl when the time comes: Pride (Gowery, Ruth Gowry, Freada Miller, Autumn Kelly, Phylis Smith, Rose Robinson, Susa Smallwood, Pearl Smallwood, Mildred Jamieson, Mary Martin, Virginia Stringfellow, Ruth Gallivern, Maggie Gallivern, Gussie Staton, Bertha Staton, Lula Chestnut, Hazel McKinnon, Nellie Fletcher, Alice Miller, Glafery Goss, Florence Webber, Ida Taylor, Willow Hudson, Gladys Dimond, Hazel Auld, Bernice Bickle, Clara MacKenzie, Pearl Bowlin, Tillie Ryan, Maggie Ryan, Ruth Best, Stella Burkett, Ruth Barrett, Florence White, Edith Van Hosen, Bertha Ling. The business men and individuals have been more than liberal on this occasion, and have gained the good will and confidence of the working army. Ample funds are on hand to meet all the expense incurred and re liable committees will see that every obligation is strictly adhered to.

INTEREST PAID ON TIME CERTIFICATES OF DEPOSIT AT THE RATE OF THREE PER C PER ANNUM FOR SIX MONTHS OR FOUR PER CENT PER ANNUM FOR ONE YEAR. There are various constructions of the word "Liberty." It applies to the liberty of government and the liber ty of person. Liberty of government is founded upon justice and reason. Liberty of person is founded upon law, and personal liberty cannot infringe upon the legal rights of others or of the state. The anarchist takes the extreme position that there should be no law to hold the individual in check. As a result of this most dan gerous doctrine anarchists have assas sinated three presidents of the Unit ed States. Premeditated murder is anarchy. • Premeditated or open vio lation and defiance of any law is an archy in a degree, according to the of fense committed. In every such will ful violation of the law the violator seeks to trample upon and set at naught the dignity of the state, in whose protection he lives and claims certain rights. The better citizen a man is, the more he respects the law of his country and the rights of others, and the higher he stands in the esti mation of the community. The law states that "city or town printing, must be given to the lowest bidder. Has this law been violated?
