Within the past few months there bar* been no less than half a dozen legal hangings in Montana. As legal executions increase the murdering industry decreases. Gov. Smith will now probably con veniently leave the state, whereupon Lieutenant Gov. Spriggs can appoint £>mith senator and thus create a va cancy for himaelf to fill as governor. Admiral Dewey's announcement of his candidacy for the presidency seem to have fallen upon the Amer ican people like a cold,wet blanket of 'disappointment. Most people would rather have been Dewey than presi dent. Queen Victoria is visiting Ireland for the first time in forty years; she has named her latest grandson "Pat rick" and the shamrock sterns to be the British national flower nowadays. The good old lady will be joining some Hibernian society next. By a unanimous vote the senate committee on privileges and elections have reported against Senator Clark retaining his seat, it having found that money was used corruptly to se cure his election. Thus ends one chapter in the purification of the state. TJie next thing on the pro gram, for the people to do, to render the job of purification complete, will be to turn the Anaconda gang down hard. Then the state may become politically pure. i _ ed it of The newspapers of Montana are joining in a crusade against, the tra veling fakir who writes up the town for cash. A coterie of this gentry h^ave been making hay in Montana for the past month, and in nearly •very instance those who had deal ings with them have regretted it when too late. Hamilton will likely be visited by the writ-up man at least once a month during the sum mer. Ho is a fake pure and simple and should be shunned. An eastern paper gives an account of Johannesberg as it was last sum mer. It says it was a splendid mod f ern city of 200,000 inhabitant«, with banks, stores, beautiful residences, hotels, one of which had. a wrought f ; iron veranda which cost $C0,00O, fine churches and clubhouse It was an Uttlander city, the outgrowth of the fabulously rich mines at that point. X, perfect pr.nic seemed to seize the people when the war broke out, in such an exodus as has rsrely been seen in modern times. Men and women left eveiything— homes ele gantly furaii-hed, splendid banks, clubs and stores—and fled. Today (he business houses are boarded up and the grass is growing in the ■treats. There are left, be-sidos the natives, only about 5,003 or 6,000 Germans and Americans who are em ployed by the Boer government in working the mines, The Boer au thorities maintain order. PURITY IN POLITICS. Eur mapy jnoHtUs. past the Daly political "push" has so strenuously posed as the special champion of pur ity in politics that some feeble-mind ed people really began to think that it was something more than a hypo critical spasm of political expediency, but the elections just held in Ham ilton have 'sufficed to dis-illusionize any Bitter Root people who may have temporarily forgotten that it is a mighty hard job to teach an old dog new tricks. The tremendous exertion of feeling inwardly pure in a political way for several months between elections and of reading about it in the Anaconda Standard and the local organs seems to have been almost too great a strain for the local "push" so that when they were unloosed for a few days in the local campaign they fairly romped in the revelry of the good old practices that ljad.been denied them since they became pure. In the town election here, for some reason, it was decreed that the inde pendent movement must be literally stamped out of existence and an ex traordinary effort was put forth—al though it may have been only the nat ural relaxatiou of pent up puritanical souls after a long period of restraint. All the old tactics were employed. Promises of jobs and political prefer ment were made to everyone. Gold bricks were passed out lavishly. The "bread and butter" cry was raised and actual coercion and bulldozing was resorted to where deemed neces sary. Money was placed where it would do most good. The business pressure pull was strained to the ut most. Less than 250 votes were cast and of the total registration over 50 were illegal by reason of not having lived in the state, town and wards the required time. Many of these men were challenged and swore thair votes in full assurance that the giunt corporation behind the "push" would shield them from punishment. The pressure was so strong that although the independent candidate for mayor received a clear majority of the votes of the legal residents of the town, not over half a o'ozeri oFTnS supporters were known publicly. In jest perhaps, a cat-hop was sprung in the school election and the "push" became terribly alarmed. J ust before the polls closed vehicles of every description were pressed in to the service and voters brought from the big mill and elsewhere. Supt. McGinty arrived to preside over the blacklist and the 'frightful scenes of one other school election held here bid fair to be re-enacted when happily G o'clock arrived and tho thing was off. And yet Hamilton is naturally sup posed to be a centre of political pur ity and the "push" a purification ma chine! of Ranch For Sale.

KDIUIID A.fi'ILSO.N, Brooklyn, New York. its recent meeting the Ravalli Stock Grower's association appointed a com mittee to meet with the sheep men and try to arrange for a division of the range but it seems that little pro gress has been made in that direction.

They have posted tile following signed notice and propose to use every honorable means to render it effective: To sheep men and parties that drive out side stock on this range: Please take notice that the ranchers of this vicinity respectfully ask that no sheep or outside cattle be driven on the range south of Rye creek to the gulch opposite J.
