Erickson of Kalispel issued a for mal statement of his candidacy in the primary for nomination on the democrat ticket for gov ernor, on the 22nd inst. Judge Erickson is, we believe state democrat ic chairman, and is quite a prominent figure in the circles of that party, but is not rated as a skillful politician. In fact it is stated on pretty good authority that his fellow democrats recog nize the fact that the Judge is shy many of the accomplishments of a good campaigner and knowing this they established a real training 3amp in Butte, six weeks ago, and the Judge has been undergoing a thorough system of training at the hands of experts in the politi cal game, and his training has been just as carefully and punctilliously performed as that of a ring champion. Not being on the inside of democratic infor mation we don't know whether the Judge will have serious opposition in his party ranks or not. There has been considerable talk of Judge Roy Ayres getting into the race. Judge Ayres resigned a^ judgeship in the Tenth Judicial district less than two years ago, and moved from Lewistown to Great Falls where he is en gaged in the practice of law. If the judge deter mines to enter the race he would not be cqm pelled, nor wbuld it be necessary for him to en ter i candidates' school. He knows the ins and outs of campaigning probably more thoroughly than do the fellows that are training Judge Erickson and could give them some valuable pointers as to how to groom a candidate. With al Judge Ayers is a genial fellow well met and has a host of friends and acquaintances all over the state. If he should conclude to run it is possible the Judge Erickson's systematic training will be all for naught. At any rate the Kalispel man would know at the time he got through that he had been in a real boss race. Silver went up to 65 and 5-8 cents last week. If it could be held there numerous good silver mines in Montana would open up, no doubt and^ive employment to several hundred men. It seems to be perfectly proper down~m Washington to investigate everybody except members of the investigating committees. When these sleuths hear that some one is on their trail they howl loud and long. Better Congress Needed Republicans way out here in Montana, to speak frankly, fail to comprehend the mental processes of members of the United States of their own party who rallied to the support of the "exonerating" resolution which was a dopted by that Body last Friday, in reference to the whitewash investigation of the Wheeler indictment. * We have heard quite a number of good members of the party express themselves in the past few days, of being thoroughly disa ppointed with the lack of agressive action all during these phony investigations on tbe parti of republican senators and members of the house, who seemed to have lost all the fighting spirit they ever had in them. Now comes the Wheeler resolution which many republicans voted for, which caps the climax. Undoutedly the honorable senators who vot > 4 } * of a frame-up when the indictment was broqght against him. Why, then, did they not accept Sen ator Sterling's report, allow Wheeler to continue to sit in the senate, and wait for the outcome of the trial on his indictment in Montana? It also appears that senators think very highly of the "immunity" privilege that time and custom grants them—and a most despisable rule it is. We are beginning to incline toward the view ex pressed several days ago by C. W. Barron, editor of Barran's weekly and one of the greatest of in dstrial writers in America. Giving an interview to a Michigan newspaper Mr. Barron said: All that remains for the fall election is to give President Coolidge a better senate and house of representatives. Sweeping victory at polls over the country for Coolidge delegates to the Cleve land convention shows the hold President Cool idge has in the hearts and minds of the people of this country. Even California repudiated its fav orite son in favor of the farmer boy from New England. He is leading the people right on the taxation question and if the tax bill of the legis tors is so bad that the president has to veto it, I am sure that he can appeal to the country and win out on the tax issue. The voice of the country is for tax reform. Our high prices and high cost of! living are largely due to war taxes which the peo ple demand must be removed or reduced just as fast as possible. Secretary Mellon and the treasury depart ment have worked out a scientific tax reform that would increase government retiras from the rich and decrease the burden of poor arujj^e average man. High surtaxes mean no revenue. They mean driving of men of wealth out of business and into non-taxable investments thus increasing the the burden of taxation on the masses. Politicians in congress are endeavoring to fool the people and play class politics against Mel lon, Coolidge and the country, but people are be ginning to get their eyes opened and understand tax conomics better than ever. People >re not going to be fooled. They are going to have tax reductions or they are going to have a congress that will support the Coolidge-Mellon program. .. - I u tt BOYD ITEMS ( Special to The Chronicle) Among those' Vho went to Red Lodge to take Eigjbth Grade examina tions were Velma Warila and Adrian Jarvi and Mary Kauzlarich.
