From Bryan's Commoner. gome of the republican papers are suggesting limitations upon the free dom of speech as a cure for anarchy. The editor of The Commoner has as much reason as any living man to know of the abuse sometimes heaped upon candidates for office. He has been the victim of as much malice and vituperation as have ever been employed against an American, and yet he,is opposed to placiug any ad ditional restriction upon the freedom ef speech or the freedom of the press. First, because the evils of restric tion are greater than the evils of free dom, and, second, because abuse does not hurt the man or the party made the subject of attack. The death of President McKinley cannot be traced to anything ever spoken or written against him. The assassi n spoke af fectionately of his victim and said that he killed him uot because of his dislike for the man but because of his opposition to government of any kind. Some who are engaged in schemes which will not hear the light will shield themselves behind the murderous deed of the assassin and denounce freedom of speech because they do not want the public to be in formed of their doings. Others, stir red by a righteous indignation, strike . at free speech because some have abused the latitude allowed. It is tipae for liberty-loving citizens to pro test against the attempt to suppress free speech. The warfare must be against anarchy, not against freedom of speech. Anarchy is au European product and thrives most where there is least freedom of speech and least freedom of the press. Let us not make the mistake of undermining our institutions uuder the delusion that we are thus protecting those iu stitutions. Free speech aud a free press are essential to frie government. No man in public life can object to the publication of the truth and no man in public life is permanently injured by the publication of a lie. That much is published that should not be is only too evident, but let public opinion correct the evil; that will be more effective than law and will bring no danger with it. If a paper abuses a political opponent stop your subscription and teach the editor to conduct his paper on respectable lines. There is a sense of justice in the hu man heart and he who violates it vio lates it at his own peril. This sense of justice ultimately turus abuse to the benefit of the man abused. The present laws against slander and libel are sufficient ; leave the rest to a healthy public sentiment—and then help to create the ;sentimeut. That portion of the press of the country thnt is operated iu the inter ests of the big corporations has seized the opportunity to impute the assas sination of President McKinley to "yellow" journalism and is waging atreuaous waifare upon the same. From the viewpoint of these corpora tion-owned critics the great papers of the country that seek to cleave to the masses of the people by championing their manifest interests, regardless of the wishes of the law-breaking cor porations, are yellow." Concerning 1 the latest outcry of the republican j press, the Helena Independent thus j tetaeljr hits the nad on the head : j "Tim (lit* • a; uni! fool newspapers that, now lay riiiw -it Buffalo at tho doors of foiv'' journals would do well use Harper's Weekly of having •d noth tc that las mur, er •Slain art. sponsible Lincoln republi fur the The Missourians are making main moth preparations to pull off the big ! gest fair the world will have ever seen at St. Lon is in 11)03.

It will be more tnau six times as large as the Coliseum at Rome aud five times the area of St. Peter's Cathedral. ty of The most dangerous of anarchists, . however, arid whose acts are the The editor of the Western News acknowledges receipt of au invitatiou to attend the formal dedication and opening of the Parmly Billings Me morial library, at Billings, that took place Tuesday, Oct. 1. It is good to note that those Montana towns that are not already provided with public libraries are being rapidly equipped with the same. This carries a hint that the progressive citizens of Ham ilton should as soon as possible inter est themselves or get somebody else interested iu a free library for this growing town. Free libraries, like free schools, are great factors in the educational advancement of a eom raunitv. greatest possible menace to the free dom of the citizens of a country like ours, are those who iu any manner interfere with or seek to prevent the full and free expression of the popu lar will at the ballot box. Systemat ic assaults upou the sanctity of the ballot box, which are perpetrated mainly by corrupt political machines and the agents of self-seeking corpo rations, are fraught with far greater peril to our governmental system ^^ 1UU | s aa ac t 0 £ occasional violence directed at au individual temporarily performing executive functions. The office of the attorney general has given an opinion to the effect t'hat the clause of the old game law by which half of the fine collected in any case went to the informer has been repealed by the new law,now in force. The opinion holds that all of the fine moneys collected must be paid over to the state treasurer and by him placed to the credit of the fish and game fund. The informer must take his reward in the consciousness of duty well performed.—Billings Ga zette. Leon F. Ozolgosz, the assassin, has been sentenced to death iu the elec tric chair duriug the week of October 28, and is now confined in Auburn prison awaiting the end. The fatai shots were fired on Sept. 6; the assas sin was arraigned Sept. 16; he was convicted of murder in the first de gree by a jury aud received his sent ence during the week following. The viper is being disposed of as expedi tiously as legal processes will permit. AN ENGINEER'S FAST RUN.

A large percentage of these wom en are employed in the big stores, where shoplifting is so commonly practiced, that, the head of one large establishment said: "We could no more do without a detective in this store than we could do without a model to show ofE our gowns." The dodges of shoplifters are innumera ble. Some wear long capes and slip lengths of silk or passementerie, feathers and handkerchiefs under Iheir arms; others wear outer skirts with long slits concealed by the gatli 1 ers, so that they can slip their thefts , into pockets in an undevdress known as a "kickshipt." Handkerchiefs and gloves are tucked'into muffs and bod ices, and, worse than nil. children are pressed into the service.
