VOLUME XU. ÇKBtoric*' HAMILTON. MONTANA, WEDNESDAY. JULY 30 1902. NUMBER 4a SOCIALISTS HOLD STATE CONVENTION Nominate Ticket—Adopt a Platform and Denounce Fusion. Bozeman,July 28.—The socialist state convention today nominated for con* press George B. Sproule, a Helena, photographer, and for associate jus tice of the Supreme court, W. D. Cam eron, of Chico, a placer miner. It also declared itself unequivocally against fusion, and any member who advocates it is to be expelled from the party. What the convention lacked in numbers it made up in enthusiasm and earnestness. Although 137 dele gates were entitled to membership, of that number there were just 24 who attended and took part in the conven tion work. The counties represented were, Sil ver Bow, with five delegates; Park, with eight; Gallatin, with five, and Lewis and Clarke with six. Alexan der Freeman, of Gallatin, was selected chairman add P. J. Cooney, of Silver Bow, secretary. The committee on resolutions and immediate demands reported, in brief, that the Montana socialist party pro claimed its allegiance to the socialist party of America and to the pro gramme of international socialism. It declares that labor produces all wealth and that it receives merely a mean and uncertain subsistence. The cap italists, under the present organiza tion of industry, monopolize wealth, and, this being so, there is an uneven struggle going on between labor and capital. The capitalists having con trol of the instruments of production, there is only the ballot left for the working classes and as a weapon or ganization of the working classes is necessary for the unequal fight. In conclusion the platform appeals to all to study the principles of social ism, to vote solidly with this party un til government control is secured, in dustrial classes in society abolished and a co-operative commonwealth founded on the fundamental principles of justice.

SUPERINTENDENT MAKES CHANGE No Teachers' Institute Until After Next Session of Legislature. One of the resolutions adopted at the convention of county superinten dents held at Helena last week, which is of interest to school trustees and teachers is the one with reference to the time of holding teachers' in stitutes. It is the intention of the state su perintendent to set no dates for the holding of institutes until after the next session of the legislature, when it is hoped by those who oppose the present institute law that some legis lation will be enacted whereby the time of holding teachers' institutes will not conflict with the time the city schools are in session, if it can possi bly be arranged. It is ptoposed that the state be di vided into six or eight institute dis tricts and that the institutes be con ducted jointly by the county superin tendents in such districts at the most central point, the time of holding commencing the first week in July and continuing for as many weeks as there are districts. The expenses to be paid out of the state fund created for that purpose. Attendance will not be compulsory as under the present law, but teachers will find it to their interest to attend. Many other resolutions affecting the revision and amendment of the school laws were adopted by the coftvention with a view to having the legislature take action on them next winter. VICTOR NEWS.
