Carter, during his speech at the opera bouse last Wednesday evening, urged every body to vote for Howard D. Smart for state senator he was also speak ing a word for himself. In his speech last Thursday night, Mr. Heinze declared that Howard D. Smart is the company candidate for state senator. Mr. Heinze ought to know—it is commonly believed he oun detect the odor of kerosene as quick as any man living. AS TO THE LOCAL FIGHT. While the laut days of the cam paign ere slowly dragging by the isanee ere abont made up and publie sentiment is fast ebrystalizing as be tween the parties pro and oon. Outside of Butte, that political storm center of the state, which many people are prone to ' believe ought to be aet off in e reservation by itself and impregnaMy surrounded by a barbed wire troche, the campaign has been largely waged along straight party Knee between the two old parties. An element of intense bitterness has been injected into the campaign in the fight over the associate judge ship between certain great corpora tions which appear to be greatly in terested iu this matter. That each an unfortunate condition should exist is greatly to be deplored by all good citizens and who will hope for the best and be guided in their dictum by the light as they see it. As for this paper it bas consistent ly supported the democratic ticket from top to bottom and proposes to do so until the end. Judge Evans, uonii nee for congress, and Judge Leslie for the supreme court, are reputed to be honorable aud capnble men by those who know them best—entirely deserving of the high honors that no doubt will be bestowed upon them. In our own county of Ravalli the office of greatest political importance to be voted on is that of state senator. It is essential that every democrat and every other good citizen desirous of saving this state from further pol lution by Dr. Thomas H. Carter, should vote for Edward A. Johnson, the democratic nominee. The other members of the legislative ticket are likewise deserving of unwaveriug support. For the clerical offices in the gift of the people the democratic party of fers competent, trustworthy men, who are in every way equal if not superior to those running on the opposition ticket The office of chief importance,p er haps, from the standpoint of the tax payer is t hat of county commissioner. In the persons of Geo. L. Satterlee, Henry Grover and John S. Treece is presented a commissioner ticket even ly balanced as to different sections of the county and composed of men of good business ability, unquestionable integrity and wbo have the best in terests of all the people of the entire county at heart. The democratic county convention that placed the above ticket in the field was absolutely free and untrem meled. Absolutely no dictation, cor porate or otherwise, Was suffered. The delegates who composed it came straight from the people and the ticket placed in the field in such a manner in the face ot existing con ditions ought and no doubt will re ceive the seal of popular approval. of a it, VITAL IMPORTANCE OF PENDINQ ELECTION. As the day of election draws near the importance of the event and its far-reaching possibilities are dawn ing with tremendous effect upon the public conscience. Slowly bat surely the signB of the times point with un erring finger to a social and political change. No man can prophesy the form it may assume. Some who are alive to the vital force and natural laws that govern the destiny of men and nations understand the nature and spirit of the coming change so near at hand. They also know that the result of the election will be a great factor in giving shape and form to the future politics that will govern our affairs. They believe as a vast mojority of the American people do, that the time has oome when the peo ple and not the Trusts shall govern the affairs of the nation. They know that the power of these soulless com binations has been acquired by and through the policies of the republican party, and now, having grown to such colossal proportions, defy the government and spurn the party and bower that gave them birth. They also know that the machinery of the republican party haa been the instru ment of giving us a government of the Trusts, for the Trusts and by the Trusts. The importance of a po litical change is manifest to all who think, and read, and understand. And the importance of this change is so apparent that few will remain at home on election day. It is the sol emn duty of every voter to register his disapproval at the ballot box on election day. A disapproval will say to organized greed, "Mankind has created wealth and Humanity shall control it." For the past fifteen years Ed. A. Johnson, democratic nominee for state senator, has been sngaged in 1 is business in Ravalli county and dur ing that time has paid oat for wages, produce, etc., from 115,000 to $100,000 every jeer. Meanwhile, how much money has his opponent, Howard D. Smart pat in circulation Î, Instead of creating wealth Mr. Smart has dar ing the past six years quietly drawn 99,600 in salary, and God only knows how much more of the people's j money, in the way of fees for abstract | of title,that he has diverted to his Ra valli Abstract Co. The same republican oonnty con vention that nominated Howard D. Smart and aent a delegation to the state convention headed by R. A. O'Hara unanimously passed the fol lowing resolution: "We oommend the Hon. T. H. Car ter for his steadfast adherence to the republican party through good and evil reDort and also commend those of our representatives wbo were in strn mental in mowing his election to the United States senate, realizing that they also are entitled to the credit for the good he has been en abled to do for the State of Montana and the nation at large. To them as to him we point in a spirit of pri de for holding aloft the standard of our party with a fidelity born of unswerv ing patriotism The man who pays the taxes and has been shuddering at the sight of Sheriff Watts' mileage bills during the past two years is quietly sharpen ing his pencil. Think of $500 a quar ter for mileage, alone,on top of a gen erous salary. Then think of all those special deputies! Why should the lit tle Jim Crow sheriff's office of Ravalli county cost the people seven or eight thousand dollars a year? Senator Hanna says, first, that there are no trusts; second, that trusts are a good thing, and, third, that "if the trusts are bad the republican party will take care of them." Tnat recalls the famous defease of the man who was charged with borrowing a kettlej and returning it crooked. He said, first, that he did not borrow it; see ond, that it was cracked when he got it, and, third, that it wus sound whgn ho took it back.—Commoner. It's not politics that will cause so many republicans to vote the demo cratic ticket this year, but simply to serve notice on their party that unless they restrain the truste and combines that party may not expect their votes two years hence—the presidential election. Speaking of company lawyers, about the only one conspicuously in evidence juat now is the Hon. R. A. O'Hara, the distinguished leader of the republican party of Ravalli county. m We Have Given Special Attention this Season to Suits for the Workingmen.

See and J. R. Faulds. Mr. Heinze came to Hamilton last Thursday afternoon. He came on his own special train and brought along a quartette of singers who were hot numbers. He was also accompanied by Hamilton'« justly celebrated Silver Cornet Hand which had joined him at Misaoula and remained with him two days. During the day Mr. Heinze addressed big crowds ' at Florence, Stevensville, Victor and Corvallis from the rear platform of his Pull man. The biggest crowd that ever assem bled in the opera house was there to hear Heinze Thursday night. The last available inch of standing room was quickly taken and scores of peo ple ware turned away. F. H. Drinkenberg presided at the meeting and introduced the speakers with well chosen remarks. Grouped about the stage were such prominent citizens as Thomas A. Chaffin, D. V. Bean, J S. Dougherty, C. M. Kegler, John F. Logan and others. Mr. Heinze makes a fine appearance on the rostrum and seems incarnate with force and aggressiveness. He talks in a plain, business manner, h ' 8 English well. He made ■ a marked impression upon his audi ence Which was attentive throughout, , occasionally waxing enthusiastic. discussion of the trusts, declaiing them to be fraught with direful con sequences to the people. The great est and most inset upuloua of them he said was the Standard Oil trust, par ent of the Amalgamated Copper trust. The speaker then turned his atten tion to 8enator W. A Clark whom he declared had proved trecheroua to him self and the people. Heinze declared that the Amalgam ated people are striving to drive him mil i!,« «late and »aid that It was coating him more than $100,000 a year in lawyer»' fee» in the courts from the Atlantic to the Pacific. He said all he wanted was an honest judiciary and a fair show. Discussing Mr. Scalion'» statement that appeared in the last issue of thia paper, Mr. Heinze said : "Let me say something to yon about the statement of Mr. Scalion, which appeared in the newspapers of yester day. I read it today and I think I have never read anything that seemed so much like an epic of injured inno cence as that letter of Mr. Scalion'«. Did you ever hear that old »aying: 'When the devil was sick the devil a saint would be. The devil got well, the devil a saint was he? (Langhter.) "My friends, it looks to me very much as though the Standard Oil company in this state was in that po sition at the present time. I have no quarrel with Mr. Scalion. I think he is a very charming and estimable gen tleman. But Mr. Scalion has as little to do with policies of the Standard Oil company and the Amalgamated Cop per company as almost any man in this state, he is simply an employe of those companies. I recollect very well several months ago in Butte some of the Union men wanted to have a change day in the mine from Saiur to Monday on account of a celebra tion; Mr. Scalion was awaited upon by a committee and his answer was, before he could make a change of that kind he must communicate with New York. Imagina a gentleman in that position making pledges to you.'' Mr. Heinze then took up the candi dacies of the respective nominees for associate justice and strongly advocat ed the election of Judge William Hollo way of Bozeman, the republican nom inee. FOR DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATIVE TICKET. Mr. Heinze, coming down to county affairs, urged everybody to vote the democratic legislative ticket, consisting of Ed, A. Johnson for state senator, and B. F, See and J. R. Faulds for representatives. He said: "I find that the democratic legislative ticket in Ravalli county is one of the very few in the state that was not dictated by corporate influence. On the other hand it is a well known fact that Oily Tom Carter. ■ «h. $10,000 a year as an attorney for Standard Oil interests, dictated the nominations of the republican legisla tive ticket.'' He being particularly interested in the election of Howard D. Smart for state senator and who in turn would vote for Tom Carter for United States senator two years hence. Mr. Heinze was followed by former Congressman W. C. Jones of Wash ington, who spoke briefly in emphasis of points brought out by the first speaker. There was music by the band, songs by the quartette, and shortly after the special pulled out for Philipsburg. Advertise in the Western News.
