There are qu t« enough good old Mssouri democrats in Montana to rollup a good healthy democratic majority next November,independent of the thousands of other independ ent democratic voters in the state who, unfortunately, don't happen to come from Missouri. Yes, just keep your clothes on. This is to be a straight democratic fight, and, you knos, the Daiy faction are "tew peas" when it comes down to actual figures ou elec tion day .—Billings Times. Judge Knowles rendered a decision at Helena on the 2rd of this month in the United States coart holding in effect that a half-breed living upon an Indian reservation is an Indian in the eyes of the law and not liable for taxation or the right of citizenship granted to the whites. The decision is very important and especially to Montana counties bordering upon In dian reservations that seek to tax half !)reeds or that permit them to ▼otc. The decision was called forth by the proceedings commenced last year by the United States district at torney to prevent the coanty treasur er of Missoula county from selling for taxes the property of certain half breeds living upon the Flathead In dian reservation. Former Congressman Hartman last week formally announced that hb is a democrat. At the Bame time he aligned himself with the Anaconda wing. Professing to fear that Brgf an's chances for carrying this state were being imperiled by the existence of two factions he in an interview in the Standard advises that the courts be called upon to determine which is the democratic party of the state, at the same time, presumably acting as the mouthpiece for the Auaconda out fit, intimating that that faction would hold a separate convention and put up a separate ticket. The fact that a large majority of the democrats of this Btate and the national democratic convention have already passed upon this question seems to have escaped Mr. Hartman's notice. .There is and can be but one democratic party in this state and Charley will have to make one more bolt to get into it.

Whep, after care .•« >» ful investigation and mature delibera tion, the national convention declared the delegation headed by W. A. Clark to be the regular oue and en titled to seats,these democrats bowed to the highest aud most impartial tri bunal in party affairs and promptly fell jn liue. Not so with the Daly bolters, however. Already they are planning to carry the matter before the courts on some technicality, and to hold a separate convention. It happens, however, that the Anaconda strength consists solely of hired po litical boosters of the Amalgamated Copper trust, the Anaconda Standard and the half dozen papers that were bought up and established by Mr. Daly daring the past year. This ag gregation would present a sorry spec tacle masquerading as the democratic party, one that would fool no one,and which is not likely to bo placed on exhibition. JOURNALISTIC AMENITIES. The Ravalli County McGintycrat, that was begat several months ago by Superintendent McGinty, out of the putrid corruption fund maintain tained by the Amalgamated Copper trust, attempts to barricade itself tie bind the claim that the Western News, in plainly stating some plain truths, had violated the "journalistic amenities." In view of its origin; its methods and the avowed inteution of the great corporation that owns it to freeze-oat the Western News, we doubt very much if the public will grant that the McGintycrat is entitled to a pleasant, agreeable, and untroubled career while engaged in its attempt ot smother and displace an old establish ed but too independent paper, or that it is entitled to any courtesy whatso - ever. Let us judge it by its methods. According to the confessions print ed in its own columns,the McGintycrat a few weeks after being launched, had secured over 1,000 subscribers iu Butte, Anaconda, Bonner and St. Re gis—in about ten days time ! Everybody knows huw those sub scribers were obtained. The shift bosses and time-keepers did the so liciting. The man, hundreds of whom cannot read or speak the English language,were simply mulcted of two dollars each. They knew that if they kicked or refused to stand for the outrage they were mighty liable to lose their jobs—aud acquiesced with as good grace as possible. Many of those men have large families to sup port and could ill afford the money At the least they would like to have the privilege ot selecting the litera ture that enters their homes. But no they must take the paper, like they must vote, or lose their jobs and thui let wife and little ones go hungry Journalistic amenities! Why, the foot-pad who sandbags his victim and relieves him of a couple of dollars, or th« secretary who lives off the earn ings of a fallen woman are just as much entitled to honorable recogni tioa by the journalistic profession as is the piratical outfit, that steers the McGmtycrat and who have wrung the çrica of a subscription from the unwilliug hand of every workingman on tie Anaconda Copper Mining Company's payroll who could be ca jo'e 1 or coerced into standing for the ontrag >, Ctn Jidate For County Treasurer.
