DAVIS, of West Virginia. DEMOCRATS ARE ENTIIUSIATSIC Governor Toole and lion. W. Y. Pemberton are greeted by Large Audience. The Democratic campaign opened in Havre Monday with a demonstra tion that fairly rivaled the muses of fancy, even of the republicans. An opera house packed to its fullest ca pacity greeted Governor Toole, Hon. W. Y. Pemberton and David G. Browne, the candidate for state treas urer from Chouteau on the democrat ic ticket. These gentleman were given a grand ovation when they made their appear ance upon the stage, and there could be no mistaking the fact that the sympathies of the audience was Dem ocratic. The opera house had on its holiday attire, the stage being tastily decora ted with palms, flags and bunting. After a selection by Havre's City Band, Mayor L. Newman, democratic candidate for representative, intro duced the governor, expressing his gratification that so many were pres ent to listen to the next governor of Montana. "He is the embodiment of the best platform ever presented to the people of any state, and his best recommendations were not what he would do if re-elected, but what he had already accomplished for this great state. Gov. Toole was given a cordial ova tion when he rose and expressed him self as being more thin pleased and gratified with the reception tendered him by the splendid audience. The governor said: "We are here to-night in all soberness and seriousness to pre sent to your consideration, as we shall to all the people of the state, why we believe the Democratic party of this community ought to come out of it victorious and its ticket from top to bottom elected. The Democratic party of this state, in all its pristine glory, not only united, but endorsed from topl to bottom by four separate and independent parties of this state, how can you beat it? Indorsed be cause it appeals to the best interests of the people and presents for them remedies for confessed evils. So strong are these principles in the hearts and minds of the people, not only the la bor party and populist party who have heretofore had places more or less upon the Democratic ticket, that they have come into the fold and en dorsed outright the Democratic prin ciples. "W'hat is the first thing asked of the Democratic party that we have not got., but which we most desire? It is a direct primary nomination law in the state of Montana. Everybody at all familiar with the situation in this state knows that under the pres ent system, it is an exception if you get a ticket before the people who in reality represent the political senti ments of the party. "Now, let us get to this other prop osition which is submitted -to the Democratic platform, that is direct legislation. It is proposed that when a given number of people want a law passed, they may sign a petition--and that number is to be fixed by the con stitution of the state in its amend ment-and when that is done it be comes obligatory to pass the law. If, on the other hand, the legislature meets and passes a law which is con fessedly against the interests of the people, which is confessedly in the in terest of certain classes or individuals the people do not have to wait and ask a legislative assenibly to repeal the law. "Another thing which we have ask ed and on which there seems to be al most unanimity of sentiment is the creation of a railroad commission. The Democratic platform comes forth and asks that there be a railroad com mission created, and that it be an ac tive one. The republican platform simply declares in favor of such. If it is ever to be of mutual benefit to the people of the state, it ought to be an elective office: it ought to be one where the men who are nominated to that office should be nominated at a direct primary and then elected at the regular election under the Aus tralian ballot system. "We also ask that we may have an effective fellow servant law; one by which the employer shall be responsi ble for the negligence of a fellow ser vant by which another fellow servant is injured. If a man is incompetent in the discharge of his duties and by reason of such incompetency you are injured or damaged, there is no good reason, under any rule of justice, by which the person who employs that man, and is responsible for that, ought not to respond in damages." Governor Toole showed that the ad. ministration of the state had been most economical, that many institu tions had been built and considering the great progress the financial condi tion is most gratifying; that the rail roads had been forced to bear their share of the taxation, the assessed valuation of their property having been raised, under his administration FASHIONABLE CLOAKS FOR FASHIONABLE DRESSERS BROWNS - ARE IT .
