WELCOME— J10NTANA STATE
Oh Saturday evening the members
of the Montaua Press association
will arrive in Hamilton to be the
guests of town and country for four
days. They are more than welcome,
and if at the end of their visit the re
be any one of them that can recall a
single instance of neglect on the part
of the residents of the town of Ham
ilton to provide for his entertainment,
then we should accuse ourselves of
inhospitality and forever do penance
for our oversight.
Members of the press gang of Mon
tana, yon are more than welcome; we
are glad to have you visit the Bitter

for more—we'll try to get it for you.
While you are here as the guests
of the Bitter Boot valley you are to
understand that nothiug we have is
too good for our friends and we num
ber you among our friends. All we
ask is that you may be as happy to be
-with us as we are to have you with us.
We extend to you everything
friends—make yourselves at home.
DR. ANDREW'S DONT'S.
In a lecture before the summer
school of the university of Chicago
last Wednesday Dr. E. Benjamin
Andrews, president of the university
of Nebraska, gave certain advice for
the guidance of parents in refining
children that seems to have astounded
a portion of the Chicago press and
provoked it into comparing Andrews
with such sensational university per
formers as Chicago's own Starr and
Triggs. The particular passage of
President Andrews' remarks which
has caused all the excitement is this:
Don't teach your children to fear
God. Don't teach them the doctrine
of eternal damnation. Don't muddle
their brains with the theory of origi
nal sin. Don't scare them with the
devil. Don't worry them about bap
tism. Don't discuss with them wheth
er they are to be justified by faith
alone or by faith and works. Don't
puzzle them with the doctrine of pre
destination and free will. Above all,
don't teach them that they have any
better chances of heaven than the
little Baptist children or the little
Methodist children or the little Pres
byterian children—whichever the case
may be—across the way.
To Chicago reporters who don't at
tend church and don't know the
trend of modern religious teaching,
some of Andrews' "don'ts" sound
strange enough; and indeed to the
Puritan settlers of New England his
whole bunch of "don'ts" would have
seemed such blasphemy that the doc
tor would have been hustled to the
nearest stake and burned alive. But,
with the exception of the second
"don't", the one concerning eternal
damnation, there are very few Sunday
schools left in this country that now
teach children what President An
drews says they should not be taught.
Dr. Andrews' theory is that the
mind of the child should never be
wearied by an eternal ding dong of
religious training; that the child's
heart should not be terrified by a
mental picture of an avenging God;
that the child's soul should not be
forced and bound by a set of creeds;
that the child's sensibilities should
Hot be set in revolt by tho use of re
ligion as a punishment; and this the
ory is entirely in consonance with the
practice of most churches, Sunday
schools and Christian parents today.
MANTLE VS. CARTER.
Some weeks ago Tom Carter and
the host of federal office holders who
take their orders from tho smooth ei
seuator began the work ot organizing
Republican campaign clubs in the
most important towns of the state.
It is almost needless to say that Car
ter's own political interests were not
overlooked in shaping the organiza
tion of these clubs—they were intend
ed as an auxiliary to the regular Car
ter machiue, composed of the Repub
lican state committee. It Butte this
task was approached with the great
est care and deliberation and with
all the political finesse for which our
owu Tom is justly noted. The or
ganization of a Republican club in
the principal cities of the state was
launched with all the spectacular po
litical effects that ingenuity and care
ful rehearsing 'could accomplish,
but, somehow, the thing went wrong
—'way wrong so far as Carter's own
political interests are concerned.
Subsequent developments clearly in
dicate that the Butte Republican
club is controlled by ex-Senator Lee
Mantle and his friends. Now it is
an open secret that neither Mr. Man
tle nor his numorous Republican
supporters in Butte and elsewhere
entertain any particular love for our
Tom. Mantle has been "gold-bricked',
on one or two occasions by Mr. Car
ter and evidence is accumulating that
another gold brick deal for Mantle's
especial benefit is already under way.
Nobody has ever accused Mr. Mantle
of being a fool, either politically or
otherwise. He has demonstrated his
own political sagacity in checkmating
Carter in that Republican club mat
ter. The club recently organized in
Butte is not only in control of Man
tle's friends, bat indications lead to
the belief that it is intended as a
nucleus of an anti-Carter Republican
organization. Ex-Senator Mantle's
speech on the occasion of the organi
zation of that club, when read be
tween the lines, leaves practically no
room for doubt iu that respect. Some
interesting things are evidently
ahead of the Republicans during the
next two months, and a few of them
are likely to cause Tom Carter many
sleepless hours.—Dillon Examiner.

THE STATE PRESS ASSOCIATION.
From the Dillon Bx&mtner.
The annual meeting of the Monta
na state press association which takes
place in Hamilton next week will
probably be the most important and
successful in the history of that asso
ciation. The meeting plaoe, espec
ially at this time of the year, is one of
the most delightful spots in Montana
and a large attendance of Montana
newspaper men from nearly every
connty is already assured. While the
social side of the meeting will by no
means be neglected, a strong feeling
is manifesting itself among the breth
era of the state press to make earn
eat efforts daring the forthcoming
meeting to put the association on a
practical working basis; to devise
ways and means that will tend to im
prove the calling of newspaper pub
lishing in the state and put it upon a
higher plane, and last, but not least,
to agree upon aline of action, through
the co-operation of all the publishers
concerned, that will prove beneficial
to the business end of newspaper
publishing in the state.
In the past the annual gatherings
of the newspaper people of the state,
while always highly successful from
a social point of view, have accom
plished very little in other directions.
The newspaper publishers of many
other states have long since realized
and appreciated the advantages of co
operation and the interchange of
ideas and experiences related to the
practical side of newspaper publish
ing. and ns a result the press associa
tions of other states, by means of
their annual or semi-anunal meetings,
have succeeded in bringing about
many substantial benefits to the mem
bers of these associations. The tim e
is about ripe for a determined move
ment in that direction in Montana,
and unless all signs fail the Hamilton
meeting will be a starting point of a
new erafor the newspaper publishing
business in this state.
