cured her." This marvelous medi

Eight Hour Day.
The effect of the eight-hour move- *
ment inaugurated in Butte will be
more widespread in its in fluence than V '
was at first supposed. No matter*-'
what the local conditions which
brought- it about, it huB a wonderful, '
effect on the movement for a shorter -•
working day. The whole mining re
gion of the West is watching the re*
suit in Butte and the time is not dia- —
tant when eight hoars for under
ground men will be the rule in all thè*
The eight-hour movement has thia'
advantage: that the more it is consid
ered and disensaed, the more people'
will be convinced that itis an entirely
just demand and in every sense bene
With the productiveness of modéra'
machinery no man shonld be required'
to work moro thau eight hours a day
at manual labor, and especially at
such unhealthy and dangerous occu-'
pations as mining and smelting.. But '
without specifying any particular oc- '
cupation, the advocates of an eight- "
hour day have entirely the best of the '
argument. It's general' adoption'
would mean fewer unemployed and -
indigent people and a much higher
standard of intelligence among work
Montana is indeed fortunate that
the movement received such an impe
tus. As a result our state is likely to
bo the first in the union to have a
general eight-hour working day. The
sooner it cornés the better for all the -
