Only two new names appear. Ravalli county must be mighty hard up if no one can be found to relieve these office-bolding barnacles. Speaking of resolutions, good, bad and indifferent, the republicans of Ravalli county in convention assem bled, solemnly denounced trusts and at the same time commended and eulogized Dr. Thomas Henry Carter, the paid attorney of the Amalgamated Copper and Northern Pacific railway companies. The republicans of Ravalli county, in their primaries last week, got a sample of the nauseating dose that the democrats have had to stand for lo these many years. Voters, irre spective of party preference, were hauled to the polls and voted under personal supervision of the bosses. In the outlying prec ncts a little oil of boodle proved quite effective. Resort to these methods were necessitated to "sinch" the nomination of Howard Smart, candidate of the Amalga mated-Carter combine. WITHDRAWAL OF HENDERSON. Far and away the most important political announcement in a national flense that has been made to the American people for some time is the withdrawal of Sfieaker Henderson from the congressional race in Iowa, says the Great Falls Tribune. It is important because of the prominence of the man in republican ranks, but more so because of the reason for that withdrawal It does more to emphasize the dif ferences that have arisen in the re publican ranks over the tariff and truste questions than any other dozen recent events ; and it will tend to »bow the American people bow utterly absurd it ia to expect relief from present trust conditions from the re publican party. Farther it shows how wide apart from the national republican leaders are the republicans of Iowa, and Idaho and Minnesota and nearly all the other western states. The latter want the tariff revised, with particu lar attention to the tariff on trnst made articles—practically the demo cratic position—and the national re publican leaders want the tariff left just as it is ; a sure protection to the trusts in their extortions. That such is the case ia further shown by the fact that on the very day that Henderson announced his withdrawal a meeting of national re publican leaders, inclnding the presi dent, were considering the proposi tion and decided that there should be no'change in the tariff. The trusts are in the saddle nationally, and the western republicans might as well recognize that fact. The only possi ble relief from the trusts is through the democratic party. a VICTOR NEWS.

Mr. Larson says: "I am favored with the custom of farmers within a radius of thirty miles, to whom I have supplied Chamberlain's remedies. All testify to their value in a household where a doctor's advice is almost out of the question. Within one mile of my store the population is perhaps sixty. Of these within the past twelve months, no less than four* teen have been absolutely cured by Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. This must surely be a record." For sale by Corner Drug Co. *1 MARKET REPORT.
