Trcscott, Ptitollsher. Two weeks ago the Acantha published a communication, and it was so marked, concerning an in dividual employed in the montaman office. The article was published, not because we had any »articular spite or grievance against this individual, but because the writer had requested it as a personal favor and agrees to stand by it in case onyone feels that he has been in anyway injured thereby. Hovvaver, the last issue of the montanian contains a couple of scurrilous articles, and we are convicted, without trial, of having written the item of two weeks ago. We presume wa can stand it. It is not. the first time ive have been lied about by the publisher and the printers employed in that office. For instance: This man Jones—aud where be is well known he is contemptuously referred to as "old Jones and his do^ Bum,"— about the first of March industri ously circulated storits, the sub. stance of which was that he was "well acquainted with that fellow, Trescott, having met him in the city of Butte, several years ago, and that the printers of the state would not recognize him, and looked on him as a S 'ab," etc. As we have never had the pleasure of seeing Butte, and, as we write this article, have before us on our desk our honorable withdrawal card from Chicago Typographical Ur.ion No. 16, it will be readily seen how much dependence can be placed on the word of this "old mau Jo-es and his dog. Bum." We do not blame Mr. Jones, however, for circulating these stories. A good old dog always obeys his master, and bro. corson had a dirty old dog to do his bidding the first of last March, It is not our purpose to reply in any manner to the articles of last week, or any others that may eram .t) from the same source, as they are too low, contemptable and filthy, especially the last par agraph in last week's attack, to deserve notice. When we want to see an Oscar Wilde we will go to England to do it. The What Cheer, Iowa, Patriot, in speaking of E. M. Treseott, a brother of the publisher of the Acantha, says After being frequently impor. tuned by his friends, E. M. Tres cott has decided to enter the con test for the rcpublicau nomination for sheriff of Keokuk county this fall. Mr. Trescott will go before the convention with many strong qualifications, and will, as a con sequence, gathe r to himself a strong following. Hç is known througti. out the length and breadth of the county as a man of excellent busi ness attainments, having been with the What Cheer Coal Co. fifteeu years, and occupying for the j greater part of that time the re I sponsible position of mine superin tendent. Mr. Trescott is an uncompromising republican and in politics, as in business, he has always evidenced all the courage necessary to the defense ot his convictions. He has taken an active pirt in the local organiza tion of the party and has contrib uted liberally of time and money ! when occasion presented itsell for so doing. With a good business education, excellent executive abil ity, coupled with a thorough knowledge of human nature aud the best of physical endurance, we must own, with all ctue respect for the claims of other candidates, that Mr. Trescott is a young man whom the republicans should delight to honor. The Chicago Record publishes a story to the eTect that there are 100,000 idle men in Chicago aud that Eugene Debs is about to or ganize them into an army, march them to Utah and build up u great colony in which every man vill be the equal of his neighbor, a°d -vht-re cirporations and high taxes .vill be uLkn iwn. Toe Record says: "The army will move with several thousand men in line, and it will pick many more on the way to the western country. It is pro. posed to organize the co-operative commonwealth along the same lines as those laid down by the socialists; the means of production and distribution is to be the com mon property of the commui i y, and may be used by any n.ember thereof. Whether the proposition wiil be submitted to the convention of the railroad organization has not as yet been decided upon, but it is said that it is more than likely that it will be." The publisher of the montanian objects to being ealbd a populist. A few years ago bro. corson de cided w.th which political party he would affiliate by lossing a horse. Phoe in the air—calks up, repub lican, calks down, democrat, and it has been presumed that it would not be a hard task for him to flop into the popocratic camp. We have cop versea with some leading populists this week, and they claim they will not a.low bro. corson in their ranks; that be is doing them too much good under present con ditions. That being the case an old horse snoe is unnecessary in the montanian's sanctum. A wagon passed through Kansas the other day bearing this inscrip tion: "Colorado and irrigation, Kansas and stagnation, populistic administration anci damnation. I'm going to my wife's relation, and make no demonstration." The Butte Inter Mountain is now in a fair way to achieve fame and wealth, one Mary J. Smith having brought suit against its proprietors tor $10,000 for alleged libel. The Cuban Message. The president today sent the following message to congress: "To the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States. Official information from our oonauU Cuba establishes the fact that a large number of Amer ican citizens in ths island a'*e in a state of destitution, suffering for want of food and medicines. This applies particularly to the rural districts in the central and eastern part. The agricultural classes have beeu forced from their farms into nearest towns where they are without work or mouey. The local authorities in the several towns, however kindly disposed, are ui.able to relieve the needs of their own pe< pie, and are alto gether powerless to help our citizens. The last report from Consul General Lee estimates that six or eight hundred Americans are without money or support. I have assured him that provisions will be made to relieve them. To that end I recommend that con gress make a provision of not less than $50,000 to be available for use under the direction of the secretary of state, also be used for transportation of American citi zens who desiring to return to the United States are without means to do so.

While absent a teiegratn was received at Blackfoot for him, stating tViat his brother in Helena was dead, but the Major was un» able to make train connections in time to attend the funeral.

Tho annual worship dance of the Indians will be held, aud there wiil be two live buffalo on exhibition by theii owner from the Flathead country, besides many othe» 1 inter esting features. The heaumen and chiefs have recently presented Major Steell with a magnificent and unique collection of war trophies, scalps, beaded work, bows, arrows, war clubs, etc., to the number of nearly ninety different articles, in apprt ciation of his good work among them. We doubt if there is another as lino a collection of this character in Montana. For Sale—Kimball piano; ut> right; almost new. Will be sold for al out one-half of purchaso price.
