The April boom in cotton exports will be long remembered, especially when it is brought into comparison with Aprils of other years.

I blow the horn f'r Hogan, He's dipped in Kerosene Fr'tn top iv hat to brogan— The populist shpalpeen. An' whin he gets elected No more ye'l walk the flure; We'll go an' take a bully shlide On Hogan's cellar dure. 'Twas three convintions turned him down, An' one has turned him up; Three times he hit the stony groun'— Then drank the benzine cup; Four times he was a candidate, Three times he hit the flure, But John R. Toole has made a shlide On Hogan's cellar dure. By Labor, Pop and Democrat Was Tommy Hogan spurned; I niver saw an acrybat Could turn as Hogan turned. But now he is our candidate, He's got the Coal Oil sure, An' we'll all take a bully thlide On Hogan's cellar dure. To the Public. Reports have reached uf, charging that the Anaconda Copper Mining Co. in their operations at their several logging camps in the valley are cut ting over their lines and onto lands belonging to the government. I take this means of making public the state ment that such is not true. The com pany are confining all their cutting to lands acquired and owned by them and are not infringing upon the public lands in any respect, which can be proven to any party or parties who will go to the trouble to investigate. I deem it proper to make this state ment in justice to the Anaconda Cop per Mining company and to the "for estry officers" in charge of the Bitter Root Forest Reserve. J. B. WEBER, Forest Supervisor. Hamilton, Montana, Oct. 9, 1900. Tbe Northern Paciflc-Burlington. New short line from Montana ooints to points in eastern Colorado, New Mexico and Texas via Billings, Alli ance, Neb., and Denver, affords j route-that Trill be appreciated by Mon tana. 4 t A WORKINGMAN'S VIEWS Tom East Sizes Up the Politi* cal Situation-ThinksWorE ingmen Should Stand To gether and Secure the Eight Hour Law—The Anaconda Standard Lies as Usual. Tom East, well known in this town and vicinity and who was employed for several years on Marcus Daly's Bitter Root stock farm, and who al ways gave the best of satisfaction to his employers, as they will testify, finally leaving their employ of his own free will and accord last spring,'last week wrote the following self-explanatory letter to the editor of the Western News with the request that it be published, Tom, who is a close observer of men and things and current events, sizes up the political situation this fall strictly from a workingman's viewpoint and his let ter will be read with interest by his many friends and former comrades among the workingmen of this valley. The letter follows: Butte, Mont., October 6,1900. Editor Western News: You would have enjoyed being pres ent the other evening when Senator Clark returned, I am sure, for when one sees the glad faces and joyful feeling of women and children and old gray haired men who have been his neighbors for years it brings a regular old fashioned Fourth of July feeling. All that stuff in the Ana conda Standard about people being paid to turn out and meet him is sick ening rot. I know that in the camp where I worked this summer there were seventy five men and every one of them was a Clark man to the core. He will get every one of their votes and they won't have to have their fare paid and time allowed, either, as m«n do when they attend a convention of corporation attorneys. That was a funny parade the delegates to the "In dependent democratic" state conven tion had here Tuesday. There were some company lawyers, and a choice lot of big red lobsters who are on the pay roll, and to give the thing a slight semblance of respectability, they seduced .two negroes into their employ for that day and date, and split them up and put a white man be side each of them in the parade. One of the white men was staggering drunk he said it was the only way to feel comfortable in that crowd. I tell you Miles, a woman ought to feel proud of a husband who had taken part in a proceeding hke that of last Tuesday in Butte. Any sensible person knows that eight-hour plank is mere mock ery. The man who only pays ninety six cents a day for harvest hands, ex cept just before election, is the same man who broke up the labor union, the only barrier between the common laborer, his family, and Chinese and Japanese wages. It is the same outfit that pays common labor 32.25 and* $2.50 per day in Anaconda where they run things to suit themselves, while in Butte, less than thirty miles away, where they don't run every one, a common laborer gets $3.00 per day. I am just living now to hate people of that sort and their methods. They have no more use for an eight-hour law than I have for them. If they want eight hours, they won't violate any law. either human or divine, by granting it to the miners and mill men in their employ without waiting to be forced to do so by the legislature. If they beat Senator Clark this fall, no workingman in Montana can truth fully say that his soul is his own. Clark has organized aud carried on the fight almost single handed, and now the laboring men'and him are met on common ground and fight ing a common enemy, and if he is beaten the laboring men will have to indemnify the other side for *the Im mense stun it will cost the corp oration with their muscle.
