As a matter of f runality, the Bryan & Kern Club appointed a committee of twenty to meet Gover nor Norris, and extend to him a welcome to our midst, but in addition, the people, regardless of party, resolved themselves into a great big committ ee of reception, and it is safe to predict that the generous welcome extended by Havre citizens to the Governor of Montana, will remain with him as a treasured remembrance while life shall last. Said the Governor: "The people of Havre have a repu tation of being alive, and Pully abreast of the times, on any question affecting the building up and promoting the interests of their community and the Oommonwealth at large, as well as for a generous hospitality, but one has to come among you to fully realize how well earned is this reputation. I un derstand, of course, that my reception is in the main and very properly in tended as a welcoine to the chief ex ecutive officer of our state, but you folks have a way of making a man feel at home, that would almost lead him into the, belief that your greeting was for the person and not the official." The people of our nation can always be relied upon to stand together on any question of vital national impor tance. During a presidential cam paign we are, as a people, without doubt divided amongst ourselves, and with all the power at our command we stand for and work for the can didate of tour political choice. This condition exists up to the day of elec tion, but after the battle is over, and the returns are announced and con firmed, factionalism is buried, and we recognize only our president-my president. This is as it should be, and simply illustrates the fact that the office created by our people is far greater than the man it was created for. It remained for Theodore Roose velt to undertake to reverse this law of universal custom. Mr. Roosevelt could have received the nomination for president in the pr-sent campaign, and as the presi dential nominee could with dignity and with decency have conducted a vigorous campaign in his own and his party's behalf. M r. Roosevelt positively refused the nomination. Just as positively he in sisted on the nomination of Mr. Taft as his successor, and having succeeded in forcing his candidate onto his un willing party, Ihe now, with an effrontery at once astounding and disgusting, undertakes to hide the ample dimensions of his candidate behind the shield of his own per sonality. Mr. Roosevelt, by word of mouth, c has been an ardent advocate of the t 'square deal;" the democratic party v is an advocate of the square deal s, policy, and would prefer to retire Mr. n Taft to private life as the result of an open handed, fair and above board campaign fight, but inasmuch as Mr. S Roosevelt has seen lit, without any license or warrant of law, or any political precedent whatsoever, to forswear the dignity of an office which is dear tb every citizen, regardless of d party, and belittle himself, his otffice i and his cause, by his unfair, ungen- d erous and untruthful at tack upon the 2 personality and motives of Mr. Bryan, we will accept with equanimity the f fact that Mr. Roosevelt is contributing b largely to the success of our can- e didate. t The alleged republican majority in Chouteau county will take a lay off this year. A careful canvass of the situation gives evidence that is ample proof of the claim. The election of Mir. Christler to the legislature is be- I yond question. This would leave the fight for the other members be tween Fox, of Harlem: Rose, of HIavre, and Cummings, of Fort Benton and Taking Time to examine 4ewe'ry thoroughly be . ."

Add to this the tact that Mr. Fox is in Overy respect qualified, is popular, ard is making a vigorous campaign, and his election would seem to be certain. There is no question as to the elec tion of Judge Tatton to sueceed him self. The office of district judge is not considered from a partisan politi cal standpoint, and when the people are fortunate enough to have this in portant office represented by a man so qualified to meet every require meat, they will be slow to turn him down. Judge Tatton will be re elected. Thomas Dowen will be elected com mmlsioner. The people in the eastern part of the county ask for recognition oi the board of commissioners; they are en titled to it, and will get it, and God knows it will not hurt to have one man like Tom Dowen on the board. L. 0. Hudson, for treasurer, is no experiment. He has "made good" and his promise to make good again, has not come as a dilatory, elesenth hour pledge, and then only given be cause it was absolutely forced from him, but was voluntarily and freely made, and will be respected, ~Ith no artful dodger attempts at evasion. Ike Rogers, for sheriff, is making a thorough canvass of the county. and if there was a man in the county who did not know and like, and was the genial candidate's friend before, it is a cinch that Ike will find him and make a friend during his campaign. Mr. Rogers will run away ahead of his ticket in all the outlying pre cincts, and his majority in Havre, will surely set a lot of people to won dering "how the play came up." Coming to the otffices of clerk of the court, and county attorney, the cir cumstances surrounding the candidacy of the republican nominees for these offices are such as to preclude any idea of their elections. In the case of Mr. Boyle, it is not believed that the people will countenance the establish ment of a precedent to give any man a life tenure to a county office, nor will they uphold his failure to fulfill the promises he made four years ago to Hyndman et al. The circumstan ces attendant upon the nomination of the republican candidate for county attorney are such, that, trying to keep in view the fact that he is at least cast in the image of his Maker, all men would prefer to draw the mantle of charity, rather than exploit to the public view, the story of the treachery involved in his nomination. We do not believe that the voters of Chouteau county, personal likes or dislikes aside, will set the seal of their approval on this nomination. We do not believe that the voters of this county will set the example before their sons-the coming voters-of ad vocating in the slightest degree, the selling of a man's birthright for a mess of pottage.
