INSURGENTS ARE BUSY.
LaFoliette Follower* Think They Will Control Republican Convention. (By Clyde H. Tavenner.) Washington, Sept. 5.—Has Taft com mitted suicide? Has he, in renewing his warfare on the insurgents com mitted a fatal political blunder, both for himself and the republican party generally? These queries have aroused discus sions that are raging like a blizzard of words in political circles all over the United States. Still another question that is being asked and re-asked, especially by re publicans, is: If the president does succeed in driving the progressives out of the republican party, where will he drive them to? And the conclusion most generally reached is tnat it is written on the cards that the next president is to be a democrat. It is practically agreed that if a stand-patter is nominated, the progressives will smash him; and if a progressive is nominated, the stand-patters will smash him. What makes the situation still more hopeless for the republicans is that the 1912 campaign issue is to be the tariff, the one subject on which the two factions can not get together. Senator Robert M. LaFoliette will give President Taft a hard race for the 1912 nomination. It is declared that the Wisconsin senator believes absolutely that he will win. The progressive republican or La Follette headquarters in Washington is a bee-hive of industry. From this headquarters the progressives are be ing organized in every nook and cor ner in the country. It is possible to present today the substance of the claims which the insurgents make.

You may possess acres and acres of productive land; you may have a palatial residence surrounded by beautiful grounds growing exquisite flowers and shrubbery; you may enjoy magnificent views from your veranda or from your windows—all of which is delightful, indeed. But then, what of the heart of the home? The real joy of living is found with in the walls of the home. When you turn from the beautiful world out side for the day you picture in your mind the cozy corners within your home; you settle yourself in your favorite chair before the glowing fire and read. Then to rest your eyes a moment you close your book and look around the room. Then comes the test of home harmony. In contempla tive mood your eyes rove about your surroundings. Suddenly you start, your eyes become critical and you are aware that something jars and the "beau tiful" is marred. You see a picture hanging there that is not in keeping with the surroundings. The picture looks cheap, the subject is poor, the frame is shoddy. This discovery spoils your day; you lose interest in your story; the whole room changes, and like "sweet bells jangled and out of tune" the serenity of your temper is rudely shattered. Let me help you avoid this by changing the frames on your pictures to harmonize with the colors and subject; let me furnish you with new pic tures and frames to harmonize with your interior decorations. Your pic tures should be changed around and new pictures added occasionally to freshen up your home so that it will not become stale in appearance.

There will be big aggressive fights for Illinois, Indiana, Wyoming and Nevada. The southern states will be pressed to take up the anti-Taft fight, on the ground that Taft's nomination will be equivalent to defeat, and that if the party hopes for continuance of the loaves and fishes of patronage of southern states, it must give its sup port to the nomination of a man with a chance to win. SAY MOSS IS BANKRUPT. Billings Banker Is Central Figure in Some Additional Difficulties. Helena, sept. t>.—Alleging he is in solvent and during the four months last past has permitted acts of bank ruptcy, William Rea, Jr., of Forsyth; Samuel G. Reynolds, as receiver of the First Trust & Savings bank of Billings, and Owen F. Burla, president of the First National bank of Hardin, Yellowstone county, as creditors of Preston B. Moss, president of the in solvent First National bank of Bill ings, and one of the most prominent men in eastern Montana, have filed a petition in the federal court here asking that Mr. Moss be adjudged a bankrupt. The matter will come up before Judge Carl Rasch September 18. The belief prevails here that Mr. Moss will resist the application. WILL WATCH THE FLIRTS. Gay Young Women of Denver to Be Placed Under Police Surveillance. Denver, Sept. 6.—Are you tall, good looking and magnetic as to personality —the sort of man that women will turn to look at? If you are there is a job waiting for you on thh Denver police force. You won't have to wear a blue coat and brass buttons—your uniform will be the best that the tailor and haberdasher can produce— for your task will be to lure unwary females, too flirtatiously inclined, into the police net. In a word Denver, patterning some what after St. Louis, is to have a flirt cop, but reversing the California pro cess, this individual is to be a man, a puritan in Don Juan guisip, who is to discover when a roguish smile, a sparkling eye and a flash of silken ankle spring from sheer feminine coquetery and when otherwise. "The women of Denver are well pro tected," say the fire and police board, "and now we must see about protect ing the men. That's what comes of living in an equal suffrage state." TROPHY FOR HOG RAISERS. Howard Elliott, of the Northern Pa cific, Offers Handsome Loving Cup. Two beautiful solid silver loving cups, each standing eighteen inches high, will be presented by President Howard Elliott, of the Northern Pa cific Railway, to successful farmers competing at the Montana State Fair, at Helena, this year. One of the trophies is for the encouragement ot hog raising in this state, and the oth er will he awarded to the farmer who produces Montana's finest oats. The first trophy will be awarded for the best exhibit of Montana bred hogs shown at this year's State Fair, to consist of one boar and three sows, each more than one year old. The only condition imposed upon the ex hibitor is that his entries must have been owned by him for a period of at least three months prior to the fair. The trophy is a beautiful speci men of the silversmith's art and is inscribed as follows: Montana State Fair Helena, Montana September 25th to 30th, 1911 Presented by Howard Elliott President Northern Pacific Railway Best Exhibit of Montana Bred Hogs Any farmer or stock-raiser in the state can compete for the trophy by complying witli the conditions govern ing the ownership of the hogs entered and exhibiting his animals at Helena, The same opportunity is offered the farmers of the state to compete for beautiful oats trophy. The display en tered for the cup must consist of at least ten sheaves of grain from four to six inches in diameter, together with one bushel of threshed oats. The grain should be marked with a placard reading, "Competing in Howard Elliott Silver Cup Contest." The judging will be on the threshed grain and the award will be made on the quality of the latter, although the sheaves are made a part of the entry and must be submitted as well. Tne cup which will go to the successful competitor is similar to the one Mr. Elliott has offered the hog-raisers. Tourist Season Closes Oct. 8. Gii a mountain and in a meadow so ondertully massive and so delicately beantitul as to be defined and sancti fied in ti u , pagan mind of the Indian. President Taft will spend Sunday, Oct. ^lr. Taft will visit Mount Rainier on this trip to tHe Pacific Coast, a Lit made possible in the llmi'ed time he lias by government built roads and the improvements made and train ser vice established on the old Tacoma A; Eastern road by the Chicago, Mllwnu kee Puget Sound Railway. The president's visit will be a fitting close to the most successful tourist season, now at its height, ever experienced in Rainier National park. Traveling over the Milwaukee up to the mountain, the president will leave Ids train at Ashford, the terminus ot the line, and thence go by automobile to Rainier Inn, well within the na tional park. From this point either by stage coach, automobile over the government road, or on horseback over a romantic pony trail through and up the sides of the canyons he will make a quick trip to God's Roof Garden, at the highest point of which snow and meadow meet. Standing on the snow fields he will be able to pick delicate wild flowers, he will wade through fields of mountain aster and other wonderful blossoms but a few steps out onto a snow field extend ing for mile after mile up the moun tain side to the very crest of the peak. The Indians called this mountain, which is 14feet high and rises more than 8,000 feet above its nearest sister peaks, their god. God's Roof Garden, or Paradise Valley, which is but. one of many wonderful natural parks averaging two miles in width and girding the mountain just below the snow line, was their sanctuary, their place of refuge. Never was there bloodshed or quarrel within it, mns were laid down at its entrance and here the pursued had no fear of violence or capture by his pursuer. He is promised one day that will be be a perfect antithesis in its peaceful grandeur to the turmoil and strife of the political campaign in which he is engaged. Time will not permit his attempt to scale the mountain sides to its crest, not a difficult but an arduous trip which is being made daily by tourists who visit this won der place. Neither will he have time to go over the trail into Indian Henry's Hunting Ground, another wonder place, from which other grand views of the mountain and surround ing peaks is secured. He will have but a day in God's Roof Garden, whence he must return to the tumultu ous crowds in Seattle, Tacoma and other coast cities who will be waiting to see and hear him. Canadian Immigration. During the last ten years Canada lias received nearly 2,000,000 immi grants, of whom approximately 750, 000 were from the United Kingdom and 700,000 from the United States. Up lo the close of the fiscal year end ed March 31, 1911, the total was 1 714,320 for the decade. Since then nearly 200,000 more have arrived, dl vided about equally between Amerl can and British Immigrants. About 65 per cent, of the immigrants arriving from the United States have been farmers who for the most part have settled In the prairie provinces. Thirty-eight per cent of the total num ber from the United States made entries for homesteads In the west. About 30 per cent of the European ar rival were farmers or farm laborers, while 25 per cent were classed as gen eral laborers and nearly the same per centage as mechanics. The influx of negroes has totaled a little more than 400, while 5,200 Hindus have come. Of the British Immigrants approxi mately 500,000 have been English and Welch, 150,000 Scotch, and about 45, 000 have been Irish. Figures for oth er nationalities include: Austro-Hun garian 121,000, Italian 63,817, Hebrew 48,675, Russian 39,950, Swedish 19,349, German 21,146, French 16,236, Nor wegian 13,798, Syrian 5,223. Western Canada received some 300,000 more immigrants than the eastern section. Saskatchewan and Alberta received more than half a million. The African M. E. Congregation was jubilant over the success of an outdoor festival. Gradually the jubilee toned down to a solemn debate as to the use to be made of the profits When the general opinion seemed to be settling in favor of the purchase of a chandelier for the meeting-house, "Marse" Ringer, the town roustabout, who bad been greatly exalted by the jubilation, for the first time in his life spoke in meeting. "See keah, Mistah Pahson," said he, "Ise agreeable, sah, Ise entihly agree able wid he rest of de membahs, sah; but Ah would jes like to ax one ques tion, sah, jes one. Ef we does git dls chandellah, sah, If we does git it, who am a-gwine to play on it? Dat's what Ah'd like to know." SPORT Joe Jackson, the Cleveland recruit, Is crowding Ty Cobb closely for batting honors in the American league, being over the .400 mark him self and but about ten points behind the "Georgia peach." Jackson is also making an enviable record in runs scored, stolen bases and extra base hits. As a fielder, he is said to be even superior to Cobb, but has not the dash and daring of the Detroit star. Lajoie, the big Frenchman, second baseman for Cleveland, is also batting at a terrific clip and may yet have something to say as to the slugging championship of the American league With Jackson and Lajoie batting so tremendously and Gregg easily hold ing his own as the leading pitcher of his league, the Cleveland team has been coming rapidly during the past six weeks and is now in third place.

O'Toole, the St. Paul southpaw for whom the Pittsburg club paid the rec ord-breaking price of |22,500, Is doing his best to justify the judgment of Barney Dreyfus In parting with so much coin. He has won all of bis games up to date and done bis work a manner to indicate that he is no (lash in the par. If he holds up, he may be just the man that the Pirates needed to help them cinch a pennant, in which event that twenty-two thou sand will not look so big. The New York Giants are slowing drawing away from the Cubs and Pirates in the race for the National league flag and unless McGraw's speedy bunch strike an unexpected snag, they will probably land the rag. If the Giants do succeed, credit will belong largely to Rube Marquard, who has been pitching wonderful ball all of the year and outshining his great team-mate, Matthewson. McGraw paid $16,000 for Marquard three years ago and as the big southpaw was unable to get started until this year, the lit tle Napoleon was twitted for having picked a lemon. It is now Mac's turn to giggle. Relentlessly as death, the bunch managed by Cornelius McGUlicuddy, better known as Connie Mack, Is pull ing away from Detroit, and it looks like a 2 to 1 bet that another pennant will fiy in Slibe park, Philadelphia. Jennings and his Tigers have not yet given up hope and may yet make serious trouble, although they are five or six games to the bad right now and not playing championship ball by any means. If they do not win the flag the Pirates are going to make a game show for second place, and It would not be surprising to see the famous Cub machine land third. Fourth place is being fought for by Philadelphia and St. Louis, with about an even break between the two for the first division birth. The Dooluites are now slightly ahead of (he Ilresnahans, but the Cards have a big percentage of their games to play at home between now and the close of the season and may overtake and pass the Quaker City aggregation. After a bad start, Walter Johnson, the peerless Washington pitcher, has regained his stride and has won prac tically all of his games during the past month. Were he with a winning club instead oi a tailender, Johnson would undoubtedly lead all of the pitchers of the country in games won. Old Cy Young has apparently se cured a new lease on life since going to his old stamping grounds at Boston, having won all four of his games for the Doves. For a man nearing the half century mark, Cy is still some pitcher. Great Falls easily landed the pen nant in the Inter-Mountain league. When the main line of the Mil waukee is completed through Lewis town, the proposition to organize a state league will be revived and will probably go through. A bunch of six or eight Montana cities, including Lewistown, can be gathered together into a compact, inexpensive little league, which ought to pay out all right.
