$z.uil A YEAR Issued 'Twice it IVeek $2.00 A YEAR Every Tuesday and Friday VOLUME XX. HAMILTON, MONTANA, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1910 NO. 65 $ 6a-1 L3 TO WAKE ELOQUENT BI TTE JURIST ROASTS HARTMAN, TALKS TARIFF AM) URGES TO VOTE STRAIGHT. Those who wandered into the Lucas opera house Wednesday night, attract ed first by the big bonfire and led by the band began to wonder again shortly after the hall opened. John McL:. rchlin, the preacher-blacksmith of Stevensville, and republican nomi nee for Ik :< Is'.nture, was expound ing republican doctrine of the Lin coln period and on the whole it lis tened like a good, old Methodist camp meeting in full blast. But the illusion was quickly dissi pated when Judge George M. Bourquin •of Butte, the star speaker of the even ing, took the floor. After paying his respects to Mr. Hartman Judge Bour quin launched into a defense of the Aldrich-Payne tariff law. He .talked tariff as republican spellbinders were wont to do so some 20 years ago— long before the republican party was hopelessly split into "stand-pat" and "insurgent" factions by this selfsame issue. After handing the Bitter Root valley a bouquet by stating that when, upon his first visit it had burst upon him as an entrancing picture of beauty and fertility that led him to conclude that this was in deed "the land of promise" for republicans, the judge said in part: "We are facing a serious and pecu liar campaign. The gentleman from Bozeman was the only man that the democrats could resort to, and he is now attacking the party with which he was once affiliated. But Hartman is not an issue. The year 1910 is going to be famous for the men woh failed to "come back." The distinguished citizens James J. Jeffries and Charles S. Hartman will he in the same class. "There must be an issue in this cam paign," continued the speaker "and that issue is the tariff. I make the prediction, too, that it will be an is sue two years tmnee in the national fight. Everything in the country, we confess, is not what it might he, but our democratic friends ought not to blame conditions on the government. There is ;o royal road to prosperity and wealth." The Tariff. Judge Piurouin here gave a concise explanation of the Payne-Aldrich tariff law declaring that it is not "an iniquité ■:• •<. re." The high cost of living L; not due to it. We have be come an extravagant people and have a right to be We have a right to live on a higher scale than did our fore fathers. Samuel Gompers made a study oi this subject in many of the European countries, but discovered to his dismay that conditions are worse thar. in the United States. The China man. lays the high price of rats and rice on the missionaries and here the den os . t . lay it on the protective tariff and the republicans. There is not much difference in the two heathens. You could follow Mr| Hart man over the state by the tears he is Shedding over the high price of hosiery, and yet only recently I made a purchase of a pair of this article for 7 cents in Butte. Of course there are some isolated defects in the tariff bill, but as a rule the actual necessities of life have not suffered. For instance, the tariff on opium is high and on meet low. Still the democrats harp on the a\.fulness of the schedule on opium, it is just another one of their pipe burns. President Taft was not at all ' eng when he said we have the best tariff law to date." * Price of Wool. The speaker recalled the condition of tt s to industry under the Cleve lan; r. istration, when prices went so 1 that a "democrat couldn't look a st ■ in the face." The price of woe. at from IS to 7 cents and the prie of sheep from $3 and $4 to $1. J re Bourquin argued that the re publie a party deserves all the credit for re. Bating the trusts. He favored; mos' heartily the railroad bill, which the <\ crats voted against and which they now clamoring for. The Ion .-short-haul provision is of the best measures ever passed, the p stal savings bank bill will al ways ; ind as a monument to Senator Carter. A: earnest appeal to the people to send a solid republican delegation to the next legislature was made by the speaker in concluding. "There is much of importance to be done, and you must not fail to support that party which has been a power for the up building of this great nation. The eyes of the country are on Montana. You are now in the full tide of pros perity, and the issues for which our party is fighting means much for the prosperity of this state." A curious thing about this meeting and in that it resembles the other re publican rallies that have been held in Hamilton this year is that the au dience was mostly composed of demo crats. For some reason local repub licans are not attending their party rallies this fall. Judge W. P. Baker, chairman of the republican county committee, and John McLaughlin and J. Frank Coop er republican nominees for the legis lature, together with Judge Bourquin, Judge Baker, Hon. Sidney M. Ward, and Hon. Charles MacRae occupied tire stage. Judge Bourquin, eloquent speaker that he is, failed to arouse any enthu siasm. Apathy prevails In this neck o' the woods. REAL ESTATE TRANSFERS.

BARNUM SHOULD HAYE HAD TEDDY FOR PRESS AGENT Kansas City, Oct| 26.—"Roosevelt Is the biggest advertisement we have had since Napoleon. What a shame Bar num could not have had him for a press agent. He would have collared for the showman every dollar between the two oceans." The foregoing is one of the things Congressman Champ Clark had to say about Colonel Roosevelt in an address at a democratic rally here tonight. In surgents, said the speaker, are mo who were proud to stand up for prin ciples. "I should like to treat the tariff like they did a horse thief in the old days out west," said Mr. Clark. "I would turn it loose with this card on its back: 'This is very had in some respects, but a darn sight worse in others.' " !

The period for registration of vot ers for the ensuing general election ends tomorrow (Saturday) night at 9 o'clock. Any person who is not reg istered cannot vote. Last night, according to the big book a total of 1.200 names had been registered in the two Hamilton pre cincts. Deducting 176 that had been checked off, representing the dead, those who have left the county and those who have been transferred to other precincts, we have a total of 1,021 who are entitled to vote. The registration of the last two days will doubtless swell this total to between 1,100 and 1,200, more than twice the number that voted in the last general election two years ago. In 1908 only 594 votes were cast for presidential electors in these two precincts. In that election the total vote polled in the county barely reached 2,000. Registry Agent Frank Hoagland predicts, and he says his figures are very conservative, that not less than 900 votes will he polled in Hamilton this year, as against 594 two years ago. If the same proportion of increase holds good throughout the county, as it doubtless will, a total of more than 3,000 votes will be polled, an increase of more than 50 per cent—evidencing a remarkable growth in population. MOVING FUTURES AS AID TO DEMOCRATIC CAMPAIGN New York, Oct. 26.—It was an ! nounced at Tammany hall tonight that arrangements had been made I With a number of moving picture es tablishments and vaudeville houses in I the city where the high cost of living with the accompanying charge of re publican responsibility will he illus trated every afternoon and evening from tomorrow night until the end of the campaign. It is planned also to flash on the screen such sentiments these: "Mr. Roosvelt preaches against race suicide and yet thetariff law he ad vocated tends to keep the market basket empty." "Vote against those who are respon I sible for the high cost of living." "Mr. Roosevelt has the nerve to ask your husbands to vote for his can didate." FORAKER WITHDRAWS FROM STUMP IN OHIO Cleveland, Ohio, Oct. 27.—Declining to accede to an alleged request of the republican state executive committee to "modify" his speeches, former Sen ator Foraker has withdrawn from par ticipation in the Ohio state campaign and has canceled all his speaking en gagements. The senator, in an address last week, made plain his oposition to the "new nationalism" advocated by Theodore Roosevelt, describing it as "treason." This brought on heated replies from the stump and the controversy, had j taken first place in the state cam-1 paign. so far as newspaper attention j was concerned. In a telephone message j to Chairman Charles H. Craig of the : Erie county central committee, Mr. j Foraker announced that the state com- ; inittee had requested him to modify his speeches; that he would make them as j he chose or not speak at all, and that j therefore he would cancel his San- : dusky address, scheduled for tomorrow ; night, as well as his other speaking i dates. Won't Change His Mind. Columbus, Ohio, Oct. 27.—After re ceived a telegram from Senator For aker cancelling his Sandusky speech, Chairman Craig sought by telephone to induce the former senator to change his mind hut he refused. Chairman Laylin of the state execu tive committee said tonight the com mittee had cancelled none of For aker's engagements." It was learned, however, that the state committee had been deluged with protests from republicans against Foraker's further participation in the campaign, as a result of his speecli at Marysville.

LOUG LOST AVIATORS ARE AMERICA II. LAXdN IN WILDS OF QUEBEC—BIRDMEN SAFE ALL RECORDS BROKEN. New York Oct. 26.—Alan R. Hawley and Augustus Post, the aeronauts of the balloon America II., for whom search has been prosecuted in the Ca nadian wilds, are safe and have es tablished a new world's record for sus tained flight. They traveled approxi mately 1,350 jniles and came to earth in Chicoutimi çouuty, Quebec, on Wednesday, October 19, but were not heard from until today, when tele grams sent from St. Anrbrose, Quebec, reached New York. The balloonists started from St. Louis with nine other contestants in the international con test on Monday, October 17. All the other balloons have been reported. Two messages from Hawley and Post were received in New York early to night. One was to William Hawley, a brother of the areouaut; the other to Samuel F. Perkins, pilot of the balloon Dusseldorf 11., which until tonight had been considered the winner. The mes sage to Mr. Hawley said: Landed in lYildrencss. "Landed in wilderness week ago, 50 miles north of Chicoutimi. Both well —Alan." The Perkins message ran: "Landed Paribonka river, north Lake Chilo gana 19th. All well; returning—Haw ley, Post." With the receipt of the news there ended a search which had come to he regarded as almost hopeless, and in which the governments of this country and Canada were indirectly partici pating. For instance, in addition to emissaries sent by the Aero club of St. Louis, the Aero club of America and by William Hawley, the United States revenue cutter service, the sig nal corps of the army, the Hudson Bay company and other agents were conducting the search, scouring the great lakes and making preparations for entering the almost impenetrable Canadian forest. Clifford B. Harmon, the wealthy amateur aviator and areonaut of New York, had offered $1,000 to any one finding Hawley and Post, dead or alive, and this sum had been increased to night by subscription to v more than $7,000. At the international aviation meet at Belmont park, nearly $2,000 was subscribed among the aviators this afternoon, headed by $500 pledged by Glen H. Curtiss, Young Perkins, who accompanied Lieutenant Hans Gericke in the Dus seldorf, conceded, as soon as he re ceived the telegram from Hawley and Post that he and Gericke had lost first place to the New Yorkers. Perkins had estimated the distance traveled by the Dusseldorf at 1,240 mils. He was over joyed at hearing from his long-lost rivals, and quickly dispatched to St. Ambrose with instructions to forward a message of congratulation to Haw ley and Post. All Records Broken. The new record established by. Hawley and Post, unofficially esti- mated at 1,350 miles, exceeds all pre- vious flights. Only this year Count Odenzoff of Russia, claimed to have flown 1,324 miles in 40 hours, hut the figures were not officially venOed. If the estimated distances are made official the long standing record of Count de La Vaulx of 1.193 miles, made in 1900 in a flight from France to Siberia, has been broken by at least three of the contestants in the recent race—the American., the Dussidorf II. and the Germania. The official ^figures will he required, however, to 1 definitely settled the question, J Samuel F. Perkins, aide in the Dus- j seldorf, which alighted approximately 110 to 125 miles from the spot where ! the America II. descended, out of his experience tonight threw some light on the hardships probably encountered by Hawley and Post, lie said: "It took us four days to make our way 17 miles through the thick under brush from where we landed to Iviskisink and it probably would have taken us 12 days more had we not come upon a guide who took us 10 miles of the distance in the last half j ay . i believe the delay of Hawley 1 and Post was due to similar hard ' ships. Apparently, however, they had a river to make their way along, which lightened the hardships, or it 1 would likely have required many more ' days for them to have got Into touch 1 with the world."
