DAVS, of West Virginia. DAVID G. BROWNE. The democeatlc stAte ticket from Gov. Toole down to Supt. Kay is one of which every democrat has reason to feel proud. There is not a name upon it which a loyal democrat feels like passing over as quickly as pos sible. Every one of the nominees are good men. Under these circum stances we expect that the state ticket will run pretty evenly and mostly be voted straight, as far as democrats are concerned. Certainly that will be the case with David G. Browne, the candidate for state treasurer. It would be a very queer kind of democrat indeed who would fail to put an X mark in front of his name on election day, It is there fore more in the hope that some republican may read and ponder on these words than any other reason that eeases us to say that Mr. David G. Browne is an ideal man for the important olfice of state treasurer. Possessed of executive ability of a high order and an energy that never flags or knows an obstacle till it is surmounted Mr. Browne has done his part as a pioneer of this great state. When duty called, Dave Browne was never deaf. None there are that ever heard more acutely or answered more promptly or nobly to the call. The strong qualities of man which were his birth right, mellowed and ripened by experience in the world would make him an ideal candidate for any post of responsibility. When to these qualities is added an unbending integrity which makes his word as good as his bond--and either will pass current as readily as coined.gold with all who know the man-then we think we havedescribed an ideal can didate for state treasurer, and we know that we have, desetbed David I G. Browui No man w `. :votes for a him wtll ever regret his ballot.--- ( DeaMc hRAS asR ATION. The bi· intr+duced in congress by l Mr. Newlands of Nevada, January 26, 1 1901, was the first measure that em bodied ; practicable plan of making the .arid lands reclaim themselves and pay for their own reclamation. Mr. Newland's plan was, finally adopted by congress as the .practical solution of the problem, in spite of the active opposition of the Republi can leaders,. President Roosevelt signed the irri gation bill, but it was Democratic Newland's bill. While the bill was under discussion it was opposed by - almost every Republican leader in the house. Among those who fought it were Mr. Moody, now attorney 'general; Mr. Cannon, now speaker of the house; Mr. Payne, the Republican leader on the floor; Mr. Dalzell, chair man of the committee on rules; Mr. Ray, chairman of th% committee on. judiciary; -Mr. Hepburn of Iowa, and General Grosvenor, President Roose velt's personal representative in the house. Now let us see what some of the Republican leaders said of this bill. Mr. Hepburn said: "If I were not oae of the most humble and polite men in this house I would take the liberty of saying that the proposition involved in this bill is one of the most insolent attempts at larcency I ham eveier$n. embodted4an a legislative proposition." Mr. Moody, the present attorney general, said: "I look with grave apprehension upon the plan to reclaim the arid lands of the west." General Grosvenor spoke of the bill as proposing "a great national wrong." After this record of Republican oppo sition to the measure thati is now tile law, the Republicans claim all credit for irrigation legislation for them selves, and say that irrigation work would be stopped if Parker is elected. But Parker is committed by his platform and by his letter of accept ance to a policy of developing America, of building up our own country instead of wasting money to hold a 60 cent market in the far-off islands of the Pacific. Parker knows that one American family is worth more as a market than 100 Filipino families. 0h, MR LINDSAY! In his very first speech in the cam paign, at Lewistown, September 29, Mr. William Lindsay made an inex cusable error. -He was explaining why he voted ainst the initiative and referendum bill in the fifth legis lature, in 1897, and said: "The Helena Independent, which today is accusing me of being insin cere because I voted against that bill, opposed it with all the determi nation it could oppose any measure- fought it until it secured its defeat." Mr. Lindsay is not a man who would intentionally make a misstate ment of facts. But these are faps: The Helena Independent did4 not op pose the initiative and referendum or the initiative and referendum bill at any time during 1896 or 1897. On the contrary, it supportedt4he measure and the bill most heartily. It pub lished a series of editorials in support of the initiative and referendum in January, 1897, had them reprinted in pamphlet form, and had a copy of the pamphlet laid on the desk of every member of the legislature. It was the Republican Helena Her. aid that fought the bill and ridiculed the initiative and referendum.

Botkin, for whom Tom Carter soon afterwards got a good job at Wash ington. Mr. Lindsay practically admits that he sat through that session of the legislature and did not know the dif ference between a republican evening paper and a democratic morning pa per. He practically says that he vot ed against the bill because he thought a democratic paper was fighting the bill! Now, isn't that a pretty excuse?
