PRESIDENT, ADLAIE STEVENSON, of Illinois. Bryan and Stevenson and 16 to 1. Whoop, Whoop, Hurrah ! God save the Oregon, the noblosl battleship of them all! The democratic national convention wouldn't tolerpto any Stiffs on the roll call either. There are some 1,500 ranchers in the Bitter Root who don't care wheth er Supt. McGinly blacklist them or net. Which most aptly describes the Ravalli Republican, the appelation of Anaconda Repnblicrat, or just plain succocrat? The' Anaconda Standard is probab ly the most vigorous and resourseful liar iu the world—and the people are dropping on to it fast. Boxer Bob Smith didn't try to slap anybody down in Kansas City al though he got slapped in the face by the door of the convention. The official who winks at and per mits the perpetration of crime in to tal disregard of his sworn duty,is far more guilty than nay other criminal. What a great pity that this beau tiful valley of ours should be defiled by the trail of the serpeut and its Butte primary methods. But then there was a serpeut in the garden of Eden. The outcome proves that Campbell might just as well have tried to pass through the eye of a needle as to have attempted tn break into a na tional democratic convention with that skeleton key of his. They do say that Mayor McCrackin winked the other eye when his per mission was asked nad obtained to permit the cock fight and crap games to lie conducted in Main street re sorts. Wonder if it's so? In threatening to discharge those of its employes who are members of the Boston and Montana band if they went with Clark to Kansas City, the Anaconda managers simply drove another nail into their already, beau tifully nail-bestudded political coffiu. Meanwhile Senator Clark will see that the band plays on. If their political necessities cause thé large employers of Butte to raise wages and sLorten the hours of toil are they not likely to be constrained to do the same thing in oth< r parts of the state? The votes of the labor ing men of Ravalli county count just much an do those of au equal num ber of laboring men in Butte. Instead of devoting so many col li aas of its "lunittfiKspace" to nbus ir g and vilifying the editor of the Western News, because he wouldn't sell out and go into exile from the valley in which he was raised when ordered to by Supt. McGinty, why don't the Ravalli Republican inform its renders of such important happen ings ns the granting of an eight hour day tb their employes* by- two of the principal employers in the state, etc! Should his health permit of his re tors und should he conclude to re enter politics it is apparent that the first hard work Mr. Daly will do will be to sweep off the deck- each dead ones iu Campbell, Smith, Nolan, Mc Ginty, McCrackra and the rest, who have become odoriferous from the po litical decomposition that has set in. This done,with the splendid resonrees at his command, the "bid man" could quickly demonstrate that he can still play a pretty stiff game of ball. The Ravalli County McGintycrat is even busier assailing the editor of the Western News than is its corn pan ion piece the Ravalli Republican. All this happen» becaiase the editor of the Western Nows refused to be bluffed out, or to sell out, or be froz en out to make room for another of Supt. Mctiinty's relatives and favor ites, and incidentally because the Western News had opinions of its own upon all topics and wasn't afraid to express 'em. Isn't that correofc! There were three contesting dele gations before ths convention at Kan sas City: One from Montana; one from Indian Territory nnd one. from the District of Columbia. The con testants from the latter places were allowed half a vote each. The Daly men begged to be allowed the same privilege but the sub-committee; the national-committee; the credentials committee and finally the convention itself, each in turn,decided that there was no merit in tne Daly men's case and voted unanimously to seat the regular or Clark delegation and which it declared to be representative of the true democracy of Montana. The Ravalli Republican is out with the tardy admission that "it will sup port the republican ticket from top to bottom" this fall. Th' s would indi cate that the Amalgamated company democracy having been "skinned" at Butte aud ignored at Kansas City, proposes to amalgamate with and take possession of the republican party of Ravalli county. By no ether process of reasoning can you account for the Ravalli Republican's present bold staud. It was never known to take a stand before—not even when Stovens ville, the town that had kept it alive for four years, was desperately strug gling to retain the county seat. Those republicans of Ravalli county who object to the Auacooda company run ning their party in its own peculiar rough-shod way had better "look a leedle out." Whenever the political department of the Anaconda Co. meets with a re buff or there is the slightest possibili ty that even its most nefarions>schemes may be thwarted, instantly the hired political boosters and its newspapers raise the howl that the mines, mills, Daly's, ranch, etc., will shut down and Hire calamity will ensue unless the corporation has its own way absolutely. When Marcus Daly first began to corral the timber of this valley lumber sold at $8 per thousand—it now sells at $15. Daly's ranch produces in im mense quantities everything that ean be grown upon this soil and which indirectly come« in competition with the small farmer. Take the one item of cattle for example. Every year 5,000 head of cattle are shipped into the valley 1 y Mr. Daly. These cattle monopolize the range and have driven moat of the smaller cattlemen to the wall. A nice little profit is realized from these cattle that have crowded off the range the cattle of hundreds of small stockmen. Daly has monopolized the timber industry and the ranges and obviously makes a nice little profit therefrom. All this he will shat off and sacrifice if you don't vpte just to suit his politi- I A r$ Face Tells ha' own story. A laugh is often a Se on r woman's lips.

Pierce, Buffalo, N. Y. cal managers! Yes, that's the first thing he will do! The national democratic conven tion at Kansas City seated the straight democratic delegation, head ed by \V. A. Clark for the following reasons: The straight democrats had 15 members of the state central committee, the Daly men had but le. Chairman Cockrill undertook by arbitrary rulings to thwart the will of the majority of the committee and was deposed and Chairman J. S. M. Neill elected in his place. At this moment a dozen Daly deputy sher iffs burst into the room and attempt to buldoze the committe and which wouldn't stand for the bluff. The straight democrats had 249 delegates whose rights to seats was unquestion ed, a clear majority of 17. The straight democrats represented 19 counties and the Daly men but five. Those five counties were carriedbythe most high handed and questionable methods—as a matter of fact the Daly men were elected by the unwill ing votes of the employes of one of the biggest trusts on earth and their delegates simply represented that trust.the Amalgamated Copper Com pany. Hence it was that the nation al convention composed of democrats, who believe in that fundamental principle of democracy-majority rule freely aud fairly expressed—officially recognized the so-called Clark dele gatjon as representative of the true democracy of the state—and declared the Daly men bolters. ANOTHER BLACKLIST. In last week's Ravalli County Mc Gintycrat appears the names of the gentlemen who represented Ravalli in the democratic state convention. The McGintycrat oalled it Clark's con vention. At any rate it was not a copper collared convention. The list is published very conspicuously in bold, black faced type, framed in flaming border—manifestly with an intent to blacklist aodinjnrein a busi ness way the gentlemen composing it. It so happens however that every one of the fiftosn gontlemen who had the temerity to act contrary to the wishes of Supt McGinty is a citizen amt tax payer. The majority of them have lived in Montana from 20 to 35 years. Some of them cbuld buy and sell Supt. McGinty—who probably won't look bigger than 30 cent« when he loses his job—half a dozen times. Heace it is that neither the gentle men themselves nor their friends are seriously perturbed by the blacklist ing operation Mr. McGinty has seen fit to set in motion through the med ium of the hungry looking young sy cophant whom he dug up out of the depths of a second rate agricultural pqllege in Iowa some six iqontbs ago gs9Kæ29B^992^9 S*' fjf ••thf I Hamilton Bargain Store Carries a complete line of GROCERIES, ■—-FRUITS, NOVELTIES and goods usually found In n bar gain store.
