As in former years the NEW NORTH-WEST will endeavor as soon as possible after elec. tion to print the local as wEi, as general re turns. Deer Lodge has a great many more precincts than any other county in Montana, and some are quite remote and Isolated. We hope, therefore, some of our friends at each of the precincts will see that a copy of the vote thereat is made on the Republican tickets and forwarded to as before the poll books are sealed up. The omission to copy off the returns of any one precinct may leave the election in doubt until the official re turns are opened. The earlier we receive complete and correct returns the sooner all will get them in print. CLEVELAND will now hate the "West' worse than ever. PRESIDENT CLEVELAND has formally an. nounced Thursday, Nov. 29th, as Thanksgiv log Day. LORD SACKVILLE WEST doubtless be. lieves that "A public office" is a "Private" giveaway. A CANADIAN-AMERICAN Republican Club numbering 143 members was organ Ized in Butte Monday night. DEER LODGE COUNTY will poll over 5,500 votes thls year, more than any county in Montana, except Silver Bow, did two years ago. CLEVELAND was right when be said "a public office is a public trust," and Senator Plumb was right too when he said, ''Cleve land has acted as if he regarded a public office as a private snap." HoN. J. K. TOOLE was taken suddenly Ill i at Elkhorn last Sunday, and taken to Boul der Hot Springs. He has cancelled all en- I gagements for the campaign. We hope to hear of his early recovery. Ma. GEO. C. MARTIN, who has succeeded I Mr. Dickerson as editor of the Independenl, I has for some years been occupied on the Chicago Times and, it is stated, has recently i been its managing editor. His art!cles bear evidence that he is an able and trained a joqronalist. t DAVIs WILLSON, of Bozeman, has, in a letter to Massena Bullard, Esq., of Helena, formally accepted the Prohibition nomina tion for De, gate to Congress. Mr. Wilison 1is a very excellent gentleman, but just at present is engaged in a very bad business, although he does not seem to regard It that way. Hoe. ISAAC D. MCCUTCrEON in his ti speech last Monday evening stated "'the tariff It is an extremely dry subject for discua- n 0lon * * and • the NEw NORTH L WEST has treated it exhaustively, etc., c during this campaign." Of course all this wasr P very pleasantly put and well intended, but sl that's what it boils down to. Do that again, fi "Me." and we'll call you "Colonel." C ABOUT six days from now the Democratic ti papers all over the country will begin to u acknowledge thatthey could see for a month u beforehand that defeat was inevitable in tl Montana and in the National campaign, but a that they had to keep up the fight and make d a bold front antil the election was over. p any man that can't see Harrison and Carter are going to be elected can't see the whole through a grindstone. Hox. W. A. CLARK is a man of great wealth. He Is engaged in many gret en terprises. The demands upon his time and attention are continuous and urgent. Can be, or will be, drop them and give that con stant attendance and attention to the Inl cessant and manifold requirements of the people of Montana in Wasbington in look ing after their interests in the several de partments as well as in Congress? LoRD SACKVILLE WEST, the British Minister at Washington, who has Just put his foot in it by violating all the rules of diplomatic decorum, and earning the right to go home in disgrace, was one of the pompous docks who turned his back with a short cost on It to the Montanans at the fa mous "spike driving" when the Northern Pacific completion was eelebrated, and made his speech to the "Amen" corner. There will be no tears shed by the Amerl cans present there that "M'lnd" has slopped over again, and this time in a way that will finish bis diplomatlec career. Tae train containing the Czar and Czarnlo of Russla and their retinue was thrown from the track Monday, and several care crushed. It is claimed in some accounts that t it was an accident, in others that it was the work of Nihilists; in some accounts that only a few were injured, and in others that 20 were killed and as many wounded. The Czar and Czarina were at breakfast in the saloon carriage, which is of very heavy construction, and escaped. The next two earriages were wrecked, as were both the engines. The latest information conflms the report that it was a deliberate attempt to destroy the Czar and Czarina's life. TuH Independent's report of Mr. Clark's opening speech at Missoula showed, if it showed anything, that Mr. Clark charged Patrick Ford of the Irish World with being a deserter from the Federal army during the war. Mr. Ford immediately and splendidly vindicated his record over the signatures of the surviving officers of his regiment, as a faithful soldier bearing an honorable dis. charge. Mr. Clark has never, that we have seen, retracted his charge, and we have watched patiently and read carefully. Can he permit even the exigencies of a political campaign to restrain him from doing Mr. Ford that little act of Jostice? Remember, Mr. Clark, a soldier's reputation is very dear to bim. Othello said: He that alche, from me my good name hobW me of that which not enarlches him, And makes me poor Indeed. HOW WILL YOU VOTE? * The National campaign is practilesly complete. The issue was made up before it opened, and has not been' diverted from by. the Repablleans. Cleveland threw down the gauntlet agasint the protective tarif system. The Republicans took It up, ap pealed to the people and, ac all indications now point, have won the day. The Demo crate dodged from the oiiginal position of Cleveland and shilly shallied-claiming I. some places that they only proposed a re duction of five per cent., and again denounc ed a protective tariff entirely. The voters of the country have' determined a protective tariff for American induatrles is essential to the prosperity of the American people, and that the Democratic party is hostile to that policy. They will vote to put an adminis tration in power that Is sound on this tariff question, and will elect Harrison and Mor ton and put a Republican majority in both houses of Congress for that purpose. It is the one right thing to do, and it will be done. In the local campaign Mr. Clark represents the Democratic party whose President is hostile to our silver interest, and who has twice demanded the coinage of silver shall cease. The result would be ruinous to Montana. Mr. Clark represents a party that in its last National convention absolutely Ignored the Territories, showing its hostility thereto. Mr. Clark represents an adminis tration that has forced upon the Democratic party a measure that will put wool on the free list, ruining that Industry; that reduces the tariffon lead and lead silver ores until American producers cannot compete with Mexican and Spanish producerc'- at reuace. the tariff on copper, the is jurj.f which ii only baffled by an internatioulal combina tion, and that has defeated our desire for Statehood by conditioning it on a gross wrong to a sister territory, and to which it will never consent. He represents an ad. ministration that is using the Mills bill as an entering wedge to break down the Amer ican protective tariff system on which de pends the prosperity of our manufactures, the better wages paid in every avocation in America, and the happy homes, the educa tion, the advancement of the great working classes of America, who toil with hand or brain in a land now full of prosperity, and where hope and opportunity gives encour agement to labor, and rest mentally as well as physically in the hours of ease and recrea Lion. It is this that has made our land the haven of the poor and oppressed of all na tions. "The doors of Castle Garden never swing outward." But Introduce free trade in America and our land will be like those from which they fled. Elect Mr. Clark Del egate to Congress and by that act you ap prove the policy of the Cleveland adminis. tration, put a man there who has attempt ed to defend it and who dare not defend you against its policy. That is just what it means. Mr. Carter represents and is a worthy champion of the Republican party that val iantly declared in its National Convention for every Interest that is for your welfare for a bi metalic currency; for the retention of your lands for homesteads: for the exclusion of pauper labor and a protective tariff against the cheap labor products of other countries offered in our markets; for the admission of Montana as a State, and pending that the appointment of your Federal officers from bonajide citizens of Montana. These princi ples have been avowed by Mr. Harrison; they are the principles of the Republican party; they are your heartfelt principles and you know it, and by the election of Thomas H. Carter, one of the ablest and best men of Montana, you will have an advocate in Congress who will capably and courageously represent them... We believe there'sano quatron of the re sult. Men wil"ect'"I tdefense of their rights, their welfare a.q4 ri$r'priinciples pn A crisis like this, despite, old affiliations and delus ions, anl if they do Thos. H. Carter will be the next Delegate of Montana in Congress. Do your part toward accomp.ishing that grand result. A SINGLE ITEM. We notice some of the local Democratic orators, conspicuous among them Mr. Clark and Mr. Word, still try to befog their auditors by misstatements concerning the gross wrong that is done to American industries by the clause in the Mills bill admitting "tin plates" free. This term covers all kinds of shet tin, used in roofing and for the manu facture of tin ware of every description. Over nine-tenths of it is iron or steel, the iron or steel body being merely washed with tin, just as other substances may be washed with gold, and called gold plated or gold washed. Block tin is used for washing these iron or steel plates. The Democratic argument is that no block tin being pro duced in this country no harm can come of placing tin plates on the free list. But a Republican Congress put block tin or "tin bars" on the free list so that the less than one-tenth washing metal could be imported free and used by American manufacturers in manufacturing the tin plates from Ameri can iron with American'labor, and protected the iron, which is an American product, with a high duty, so that with a tariff on "tin plates" the American manufacturers of them paying higher wages could compete with the English manufacturer paying lower wages. Notwithstanding that $5,000,000 of tariff was paid last year on imported "tin plates," showing the tariff was not prohibi tive of competition. But if "tin plates" are put on the free list, all that revenue will be lost; all the iron used by American manu facturers will be unused, and every tin plate manufactory in the United States will nec-. essarily have to be closed until American wages are reduced to a level with English wages. This is a correct statement of this question, and no Democratic orator or news paper can controvert it. Any other repre. sentation is a deception. And this is the result that will follow wherever an Amerl can industry is thrown into unprotected competition with foreign labor. The work ingmen of America have now the opportu nity to use their power effectively on this issue of wages. The bars cannot be thrown down except by their concurrence. The overthbrow of an administration and House majority that conceived and urges the Mills bill is in their hands, and they will blow both sky high next Tuesday from Montana to both oceans. IRRELEVANT TESTIMONY. BUTTE, Oct. 24.-Wm. A. Clark, Esq. Dear Sir: 1 desire, for my wife and for my self, to disclaim any cnnection, even the most remote, with certain publications in the Helena Republican papers, and to assure you that I intend, as I always have done, to vote the straight Democratic ticket. Re spectfully yours, RICHARD S. JONES. We would very respectfully ask what the above has to do with the sworn complaint made against Mr. Clark. Mr. Jones is not on trial for having incited the publication of the complaints. Nobody ever said he did. It makes no difference whether he did or not, or who he Is going to vote for. Mr. Jones' card is worse than none. He does not relieve Mr. Clark of any charge made in the sworn complaint, and his not doing so, and writing the above, which Is published by the Independent with great gusto under the title "Clark vindicated," makes things look bad. Mr. Clark has not at this writing explain. ed the transaction of securing that dower Interest. Can he afford not to? LOrD SACKYILLE8 FATAL OFFENSE. We publish elsewhere the copy of a letter received by Lord Sackville West, the Brit ish Minister at Washington, and his reply thereto. Mr. West is one of the most thorough dsplomats in the English service. He has represented that country many years in Washington. Be knows, and has known as well as any man living, that his position demands of him absolute non-interference In the domestie affairs of the country to which he is accredited, and that such Inter. ference, even to a much less degree than he has offended, subjects him to recall by his own government, or a notice that be will be no longer recognized by the government to which he is accredited. He further knows that under the Revised Statutes of the United States severe penalties attach to any citizen of the United States who, without the consent of his government, shall com mence or carry on any cJrrespondence with any officer or agent of any foreign govern ment in relation to any disputes or contro versies with the United States, or with an intent to defeat the measures of the govern ment of the United States. Nevertheless, on receipt of a letter, alleged to be written by a former British subject but now a citi zen of the United States residing In Cali. fornia, asking certain questions, the reply to which would influence his vote and that of others in the pending Presidential contest, and professing a still existing affection for England, Mr. West immediately answers in most astonishingly direct terms for a diplomat to the effect that from an English standpoint 'Cleveland is all right." The unmistakable purpose of this letter was to influence his corresnona.nt. Mu.Lioo., muid ntiNchison's friends to vote for Cleveland as a better friend of England than Harrison would be. And to keep the matter all close and nice the letter was marked "Pri vate." These letters were written in Sep. tember, but only became public last week, and would doubtless have been promptly denounced as "campaign lies" or "forgeries" had not Minister West, at the instant of their publication, acknowledged having re ceived the Murchison letter and written the reply thereto. That blocked all denial, and to make it worse and more binding the New York Times' editorial of August 224, to which reference was made, contained the following in relation to the fishery treaty: "There is this further consideration in favor of supporting the administration on this issue. It will leave the question still open for friendly means of settlement of some kind, while a support of the Senate's position will close all avenues of future ne gotiations, and bring upon the country the disastrous consequences of ietallation, hos. tility, and possible war. It would put an end to all prospect of improving the com mercial relations of the United States and Canada. This is one of the questions which the people should keep in mind in casting their votes nezt November." The situation threw the administration into consternation. It was a dead giveaway as to British sympathy in this contest, and It was too late to stop that; but to send Mr. Sackville West his walking papers abruptly might alienate the free traders, Mugwump., Cobden clubbers and all the Murchison's in the country, while to retain him would lose the remainder of the Irish-American vote and "break up the game." So the whole matter was cabled to London, and Minister Phelps rushed with it to Lord Salisbury, and mi.lord looked wise and did nothing. feantime everything was going to ruin in 1ew York, and the National Committee banged Washington full of telegrams that ,he President's shillyshallying was result ing in the Irish vote slipping out of their bands, and so Wednesday, Mr. Bayard had ;. inform Lord Sackville that he was on the nos as one or mr. ulevelanu's root friends, and by Mr. Cleveland's dtreosicq s upws go. Of course Lord Sackville understands that this is all owing to the fact of his hav. ing "told the truth," as Cleveland recom. mended in his better days, and "gotaggbt at it," and probably thinks the President will still feel grateful for good Intentions, but if Mr. Cleveland believes he has lost New York by it, hp is probably just.as mad at Mr. West as he pretends to be in chopping off his head. The cry is now that Lord Sackville was entrapped, that Murchison is a myth, and the administration has California full of detectives hunting him up. What difference is it if he is a myth? Certain questior s were asked of a British Minister and he answered them. He showed that his sympathies as a British subject, as a representative of Brit ish interests, were with Cleveland on the fisheries treaty, and the Democratic party and its Mills bill as against the Republican party and protection to American industries, and that was what the American voter wanted to know about. Mr. West gave it away. Chopping off his hbead or finding the man that trapped him into telling the truth, will not alter the facts. THE COUNTY TICKET. The County Ticket placed in nomination by the Republican Convention of Deer Lodge County and presented for the suffra ges of the electors at the polls next Tues day, is a good one from top to bottom, and the candidates do not need any adventitious aid or buncombe biographical sketches to commend them to the voters of this County. They are known of all men. They possess the essential commendations of capability, integrity and qualification for the office for whieh they were nominated, and are every one deserving and good men. Those who have held office have in every instance per formed their duties well, and those who are named newly for positions are selected be cause of wortbiness and peculiar fitness for the duties of the office. We trust every elector will consider all that is involved in the campaign. Scan closely-and Judge fair ly of the fitness and merits of the candidates, and when you" go to the polls vote the straight Republican ticket. Every man on it is worthy of your vote. Tnu Democracy are gone. Robert B. Smith, Esq., United States Attorney for the District of Montana, has raised the point of "constitutionality" of the tariff law. This don't effect the law particularly, but we have noticed ever since '60 that whenever the world slld from under the Democratic party it forthwith set up the cry of "uncon. stitutionality." Then, about four years after, it would come albng accepting the ac complished result as a bad boy takes medi cine, would find the Republican party again far ahead wrestling with some other giant of wrong and would again stop and bellow "unconstitutional." It never did and never will catch up with the procession of mighty events and grand achievements, but has lin gered "superfltous on the stage," accepting accomplished facts and worthily winning the sobriquet of the "old clos' party." Four years ago the Republican party had not ad. vanced to grapple firmlnyay great issue, the party was not well in line, and the Dem ocrats by the slip of a fool's tongue in New York, slipped into power. But we haven't heard the word "unconstitutional" since, not even when Land Commissioner Sparks suspended the laws of the United States until Attorney Smith, the seer and revelator of Montana Democracy from his perch on Beaverhead Rock, discovered the tariff law was "unconstitutional." We thank him for that word. He has read the handwriting on the wall. The jig is up with Cleveland. Republicanism is triumphant. The protec tive tariff will be maintained. Hence, it is "unconstitutional." Again we thank -him for that word. t A BRITISH BURCHARD. He Dabbles a Little ha Amerleau Peoulte And Shows His Sympathies Are With Cleve land. Los ANOxLuS, Oct. 209.-Following is the full text of the letter to the Hon. L. S. Sackville West, British Minister st Wash ington: POMONA, Cal., Sept. 4,1888. To the British Minister, Washington, D. C.- Sir: The gravity of the politieal ata. tion here and the duties of those voters who are of English birth, but still consider Eng~i land their motherland, constitute the spoli. gy I hereby offer for intruding for Informa tlon. Mr. Cleveland's message to Congress on the fishery question Justly excites our alarm and compels as to seek further knowledge; before finally casting our votes for him, as we intended to do. Many English eltumnsi have for years refrained from being natural ized, as they thought no good would secruee from the act, but Mr. Cleveland's admini_; tration has been so favorable and frlendlyi toward England, so kind in not enforcing the retaliatory act passed by Congress, so sound on the free trade question, and so hostile to the dynamite school of Ireland,. that by hundreds-yes by thousands-they have become naturalized for the express. purpose of helping to elect over again one, above all of American politicians, whom they consider their own and their country's best friend. I am one of these unfortunates. With a right to vote for President in November, I am uuable to understand for whomnId.AalIa cast ,n burllt, ;wnuu out one mtrith ago x was sure Mr. Cleveland was the man. If Mr. Cleveland is pursuing a new policy toward Canada temporarily only, and for the sake of obtaining popularity and conti nation of his office four years more, but in tends to cease his policy when:his re-elec tion is secured in November, and again f. vor England's interests, then I should hb·a no further doubts, but go forward and votiN for him. I know of no one better able to direct me than you, sir, and I most respectfuily ask your advice in the matter. I will further add that the two men, Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Harrison, are very evenly matched, and a few votes may elect either one. Mr. Har; neon is a high tariff man, a believer in the American side of the questions and un doubtedly an enemy to British interesti. generally. This State is evenly divided be. tween the two parties, and a mere handful of our naturalized countrymen can turn it either way. When It is remembered that a small State (Colorado) defeated Mr. Tilden in 1876, and| elected Hayes, the Republican, the import ance of California is at once apparent to all. As you are fountain-head of knowledge on the question and know whether Mr. Cleve land's present policy is temporary only, and whether he will, as soon as he secures an other term of four years in the Presidency, suspend it for one of friendship and free trade, I apply to you privately and confi dentially for Information which shall iw turn be treated as entirely secret. Such in formation would put me at rest myself, and if favorable to Mr. Cleveland, enable me, on' my own responsibilty, to assure many of our countrymen that they would do Eng land a service by voting for Mr. Cleveland and against the Republican system, of tariff. As I have before observed, we know not what to do, but look for more light on a mysterious subject which, the sooner it comes, will better serve true Englishmen in casting their votes. Yours, very respectfully, CHARLES F. MURCHISON. BEvEnLY, Mas., Sept. 13, 1888. SIR: I am in receipt of your letter of the tk.znost., and beg to say that I fully appre elate the difficulty in which you find your self in casting your vote. You are probably aware that any political party which openly favored the mother country at the present moment would lose popularity, and that the party in power is fully aware of this fact. The party, however, is, I ..believe, still de. sirous of maintaining friendly relations with Great Britain, and is still as desirous of settling all questions with Canada, which have been unfortunately reopened since the rejection of the treaty by the Republican majority in the Senate, and by the Presi dent's nressage, to which you allude. All allowances must, therefore, be made for the political situation as regards the Presiden tial election thus created. It is, however, impossible to predict the course which President Cleveland may pur sue in the matterof retaliation should he be elected, but there is every reason to believe that, while upholding the position he has taken, he will manifest a spirit of concilia tion in dealing with the question involved in his message. I inclose an article from the New York Times of August 22d, and re main, yours faithfully, L. S. SACKVILLE WEST. - - . MAJoR MARTIN MAGINN.S has made the present campaign an opportunity not to say anything in particular about the tariff, but to lay it on heavy exalting Secretary Whit. ney's management of the navy, excusing his unparalleled cruelty and wrong to poor old John Roach, lauding the new navy of the Cleveland administration and just daring England to send her fleets over here and get them licked. Like Silas Wegg he has even "dropped into poetry" on the subject, the burden of the verse being that "She hoved and Sot," convulsing with the delicate humor of maritime poetry his thousands of auditors who never saw salt water, and don't know the difference between a marline spike and the mainbrace. And now, just at the most disastrous time comes the tidings that the Republic of Hayti has seized a United States steamer, and the Navy De-' partment in response to the request of the Secretary of State for a man-of-war to sail for Port an Prince, admits that there insn't a vessel in the North Atlantic squadron but that is laid up in the navy yard for repairs, except one, and that is down In Central America somewhere out of reach of tele graph. Worse even than that-a dozen whaling vessels, with crews aggregating 500 men, are frozen in in the Arctic sea and prob ably wrecked, abort of provisions and cloth ing and the crews likely to perish, and Sec. retary Thompson says there isn't a revenue cutter on the Pacific Coast in condition to go North. The administration apparently never has been very fond of Maginnis, but this explosion of his pet argument is "the most unkindest cut of all." If the Major wasn't. o the wrong crowd we would mourn for him with both eyes. Never mind, Major, it is only a question of a little time, if by any oversight of Providence the Demo. crats should succeed, when the fictions of your fellow orators will be exploded and exposed worse than your pretty little fairy story about Uncle Sam's "Navee I" Died From Yellow Fever in Brooklyn. NEW YORK, Oct. 26.-Considerable alarm has been occasioned by the death in a hos. pital in Brooklyn of Captain John Jillard of yellow fever. The health authorities, how. ever, assert that there is no cause for fear, as everything possible to prevent the spread of the disease has been done. The steamer Corenza immediately returned to lower quarantine, where she will be thoroughly fumigated. The portion of her cargo dis charged will also be disinfected. The hack in which Jillard rode to the hospital wars thoroughly disinfected. The officers are at work trying to locate the passengers. j For Conncil... ..... DR. A.H.

INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 26.-An enthusiastic audience of 6,000 gathered last night in Tomlison's Hall to listen to a speech by Hon. Wi. McKinley. When the Napol. sonic features of the distinguished orator were recognized by the great audience as he walked down the stage accompoanied by ex Secretary Litchman he was given an ova tion second only to that tendered General Harrison in the afternoon. Brief prelimin ary addresses were made by Chairman Litchman, whose reference 'to McKinley as "the ablest champion of protection" brought the big crowd to their feet. Congressman McKinley spoke for nearly two hours re. viewing the tariff and labor question at length. He said: What do you think of an administration that goes abroad to buy blankets for the use of the army to save 30 cents a piece? [Hisses and cries of "put it out."] A government that make. its own citizens pay duties at the custom house to support the Ameriean Gov ernment an$ then goes abroad to buy for eign productions and evades the duty given the manufacturer of them at home? [Cries of "Turn 'em out and shoot 'em?] This is the second time they have done it, and when their attention was called to it, Secre tary Endicott wrote a letter in which he said it was his duty to go abroad and buy if he could save anything to the Government of the United States. They very recently changed front on that question. I have before me an order which they issued three weeks ago. Let me read it to you: "It is hereby directed that hereafter the chief of bureaus of the War Department shall cause to be stated in all advertisments for proposals for furnishing supplies needed by the War Department that preference will be given to articles of domestic production or manufacture including the price and the duty hereon fixed by the laws." They made our producer compete with the foreign producer with the duty thereon. But under the press of the campaign they have concluded to make competition with the foreign price with the duty thereon. [Laughter.] When we were considering the Mills bill at the end of every section we of. fered this proposition: "Provided, however, that if any of these products are made by convict labor they shall pay three times as much duty as the Government imposes up on the products made by free labor." The Democrats voted that down at the end of every schedule. The truth is this, the administration is very fond of convict labor. [Applause.] The President of the United States made a pocket veto of the convict labor bill. He made a pocket veto of the alien bill. He made a pocket veto of the arbitration bill. This administration within the last three months has gone into the State of Tennessee and bought 1400 wagons made by the convict labor of that State-1400 wagons for the Indian ser vice of the army. How do you like that up in Indiana? You men who work in Stude baker's shops that make wagons? We not only believe that every workingman should be protected saalnst convict labor at home but convict labor abroad, and the under. paid labor of every nation of the world. [Great applause.] MINISTER WEST BOUNCED. It was "Awful" but it had to be Done. WASHINGTON, October 31.-By direction of the President, the Secretary of State to day informed Lord Sackvlile that for causes boeretofore made known to her majesty'S* government his continuance in his present boicial position in the United States is no (onger.acceptable to this government, and would be consequently detrimental to the. relations between the two countries. A reporter put the following question to Secretary Bayard: "Have you ever at any time formally requested or demanded of the British Government the recall of Lord Sack yille"' The recretary replied: "No, no; positively no. All statements to that effect are absolutely and unqnallfiedly untrue. We forwarded to the British Government the facts in the case. The President wanted what he considered to be a sufficient length of time before he resolved upon definite action, and finding the British Government were apparently doing nothing in the mat ter, decided, in view of the emergency, to do what has been done." WASmnaoIroN, October 31.-The following is the substance of a telegram received this morning by members of the Cabinet from sev&al members of the Democratic Nation al Committee in New York: "The tele grams in to-day's papers are most dissapoint ing about the Sackville matter. Does the President know that the Irish vote is slip ping out of our hands because of diplomat ic shilly shallying? See L at once. Some thing ought to be done to-day." PoMoNA, Cal., October 31.- he Nation .Postmaster at this place to offer a reward of $1,000 for the name of the author of the Murchison letter, and to spend another $1,000 in detectives and means to appre hend the author. Several Republicans here who positively know the man say he lives here but that neither Patrick Egan or any non-resident whatsoever had anything to do with the letter. ,SOME at least of Mr. Clark's advocates, base his claims to election on the number of; men he has employed, the enterprises be conducts, the mines and mills and smelters and banks he owns. These men need only to go a step further to claim that great riches are essential to qualify and commend a man for office in Montana. That is the tendency, and that is the ultimate logical -equence of such pretenses. It has obtained in Nevada. Are we to adopt Nevada methods? Will the purpose and spirit of out :American institutions be reversed in Montana and the theory be adopted that only the rich can reach the offices of high -prferment in Montana? If wealth is the critrion, and without wealth these enter pr es could not be conducted by him, then a14 iltimate logical sequence of that is that tGdkould shbbuld be President and such mein as Roscoe Conkling remain in private life. Riches, honestly obtained, are honor ale as well as convenient; but they do not constitute a claim for political preferment. The pretense that they do is not a whole some or patriotic one. A CAMPAIGN roorback alleging Thos. H. Carter had filed a claim to some railroad land in Beaverbead county which was for feited by the N. P. Co., and to which other parties had settlers rights, and that Carter had in some way not done right toward them was published last week with an affi. davit of recollections of a letter, etc., by Robert B. Smith in the Independent. But Frardk Sterling, Esq., of Helena, attorney in the case, who had been erroneously reported as having gone to the States to be absent some time, unexpectedly returned, and a letter over his signature and one over that of James M. Page, U. S. Deputy Surveyor, not only knocked the charge to pieces but proved that Mr. Carter had acted through out with the utmost fairness and generosity toward the claimants. "Carter is all right." It Might Have Been. PIERRE, Dak., Oct. 26.-About 260 Sioux Indians under White Ghost from the lower Brule agency, passed up Bad river yesterday to reinforce the Standing Rock Indians Il the coming fight with the Crow Indians. It is expected that Charger with 300 Indians will join them at Cheyenne.

A Renegade Newspaper Brought Up With a Round Turn at Court. INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 26.-About a month ago Allen Jennings and other stockbolders of the Labor Signal, a weekly newspaper founded as the organ of the various trades unions, instituted proceedings against I. M. Gruelle, editor, and John Bodenmiller, bus. Inesas manager, asking for an accounting, and praying for the appointment of a re ceiver. Special Judge Eli Ritter to-day filed a ruling finding for the plaintiffs and granting their application for a receiver. Judge Ritter recites the statements of plain. tiffs and declares void the pretended lease to Gruelle and Bodenmiller, touching whom the court says: -"They have diverted the policy and pur pose of said paper and the publication there of from the design and purpose contem plated by the stockholders and the original directors in organizing said company. They neglected and refused to print the platform of the Union Labor party and so changed the political tone of the paper as to make it acceptable and so desirable to the Demo cratic party that the Democratic State Cen. tral Committee took regularly of each issue 4,000 copies, besides which the Democratic County Committee ordered a large number of each issue, this demand constituting the principle circulation of the newspaper." The language and statements in Judge Ritter's decision when they became public this evening, were the subject of much in teresting political conversation and gossip about headquarters. The paper has recently acquired a wide circulation through the agencies of both political parties. A .IOI14 Fact."' From Blaine's Speech in New York City. Passing to the tariff question Mr. Blaine said: We are in the habit of discussing the question very largely on theory. You may phllosophize on the doctrine of free trade and the doctrine of protection to the end of time, but I want now to give you a solid fact. Up to this date since Grover Cleve land was inaugurated there has been im ported r~l't1is dntry of Iron and steel and their products an amount equal to the enor mous sum of $160.000,000, and they say we have got too high a tariff. If that iron and steel had been made here it would mean good wages for a whole year for 300,000 la borers, and for the average size of a family dependent upon him it meant 1,500,000 to be fed and backs to be clothed out of $160,000, 000. [Applause.] That is what I calla solid fact, and they say there is not enough coming yet. They want to lower the tariff so we can have more. I have the supremest confidence that on November 6th the Amer ican people will declare their will not to surrender at the bidding of England, or the bidding of the English Minister, or the bidding of President Cleveland, or all three combined. They will never surrender the great principle of protection to American industries. [Loud and continued ap plause.] WHALERS IN PERIL. The Possible Foundation for a Great Tragedy. SAN FRAwcISco, Oct. 27.-The whaling bark Howland arrived from the Arctic ocean to-day, and reports six New Bedford and seven San Francisco whaling vessels fast in the ice in about latitude 74 degrees nort'h, longitude 174 degrees west, near the place where the Jeannette was broken up. Th6 vessels are in an extremely perilous situation, and the prospects of their getting out are very poor. There are between 500 and 600 men on board the tied-up vessels, and unless the ice breaks up soon they will not be able to survive as their provisions cannot hold out for a great length of time. Three steamships have been started to their relief from Fox Island loaded with supplies, and the result of this expedition is awaited with great anxiety. The value of the thir teen vessels, including the season's catchb, will aggregate over half a million dollars. The Pope's Views. LOxDON, Oct. 26.--I an interview with Pope Leo, a London correspondent was told by the Pope that the latter was neither sat. isfied nor displeased with Emperor Wil. liam's visit. Said the Pope: "In the German empire there are 15,000, 000 Catholics whose wishes and feelings must be respected, it being to the interest of their temporal leaders to keep them con tented. When the civil a.thorrity .t, ~, eously exercised it is always supported by the church. As the head of the church I cannot countenance injustice done to those who are committed to my care and whom I am bound to protect and defend. The teachings and rights of the church must be r recognized and their exercise must be r authorized by the State." I The Pope intimated that with less than that neither he nor the Catholics would be satisfied. Tae election will take place Tuesday. Then candidates will cease to be battered about like a tin can in a back alley; the ubiquitous candidates will go home to have their first good sleep for weeks, or break for the woods; the giddy torch and exuberant flambeau will be stored in the wood shed; the brass bands will have a rest on "March lug Through Georgia;" the orators will cease to bull the lemon market; Tom, Dick and Harry will no more feel the soft pressure of the candidates hand or taste the ardent flavor of campaign fluids, but the worn-out telegraph operators and winning daily newbpaper men will have to be on duty a few days more with returns, roosters, and ratifications, and then finally the great American people will subside into their normal condition, lay in firewood and Thanksgiving Turkeys, and sail into their preachers, school teachers and editors for the next two years.

Leslie, Governor of Montana, in his annual report to the Secretary of the Interior, estimates the population of the Territory at 140,000, an increase of 10,000 over the estimate of last year. All the industries of the Territory have been highly active and prosperous during the year. Agriculture has made rapid strides forward. It can be stated in truth that the average yield per acre of wheat, oats, potatoes and cultivated grass in Montana for 1887 has not been equaled by any other Territory or State. The commercial operations of the Territory during the year aggregate 849,000,000 of as sessed value. The taxable property of the Territory is $69,000,000. Upon the subject of education the report says that in each of the cities and large towns there is the very best and highest class of graded schools, every child of school age in the Territory being on the school roll and at school nine months of the year. The mines are more productive than ever before. Tapping the Clerks. WAsaINoToN, Oct. 24.-The Star this evening says: The pension office has been invaded during the past few weeks by an unwelcome visitor. He bore a letter from Chairman Brice, of the National Democratic Committee, authorizing him to collect sub scriptions for the campaign fund. The field is being very carefully worked in the follow. ing manner: Accompanied by a messenger boy detailed for this duty from the office of deputy commissioner the canvasser makes his rounds. The messenger has a list of clerks likely to bleed. The messenger in troduces the clerk to the canvasser who says in the most approved book agent style: Mr. Blank, I am soliciting subscriptions for the New York Graphic. The price is $5 for three months. This money is for the use of the Democratic National Committee, and it is badly needed before Saturday night. It is to be used to get voters back to Florida who have been driven from their homes by the yellow fever. Of course, you will get the Graphic for three months, but the main point is the money. AN anonymous scre'd dated Anaconda, published in the Butte Miner in September, is reproduced in the "What is It?" now be. ing distributed in thisobanty, and contains a lot of swash concerning Mr. Wmin. M. Thompson, Republican candidate for the Council, and Mr. Will Furay, the candidate for Clerk and Recorder. This contribution, as all anonymous contributions, is really unworthy of notice, but the facts are that on the occasions referred to Mr. Thompson did a service to the people of this county which entitles him to their support and everlasting gratitude. The occasion was that when two or three years ago the Anaconda works shut down in the teeth of winter. Many men, 60 per cent. of whom had famihes, were thrown out of employment. lIr. Thompson was identified with the Knights of Labor, and be was employed in the office of the Anaconda Company, which he knew was losing money by operating at the price copper then was. The company would not start up at the old rates. We all remember the circumstanee and the danger that there would be very great suffering, and no work that winter. It was a peril such as never before or since hung over this county. Mr. Thompson and another gentleman finally secured conces. sions, and using their Influence with the company work was resumed. If there is a man in Deer Lodge county to whom its peo. ple owe a debt of gratitude for services done on that occasion it is Wm. M. Thompson. It ought to make him a thousand votes. The other charge that Mr. Furay is a young man and poor, is not a grave one. He is capable, obliging and deserving. Let us see how the people of Deer Lodge will answer the anon. ymous letter. McKINLEY, of Ohio, is the Sheridan of the war against free trade. His attacks are as brilliant and effective on the rostrum as were "Little Phil's" in the field. McKin ley's exhibition of that suit of Leopold Morse's $10 clothes in the House was as dramatically effective as Sheridan's ride to Winchester, and his cornering of Cleveland's administration the other day at Indianapo lis on its purchase of foreign blankets be. eause It could save 30 cents a pair, and the buying of convict made wagons for army use in preference to purchasing them made by free labor is pounding the enemy mercilessly at the vital moment like Sheridan did Lee at Five Forks. McKinley Is in a very fair way to be the next Republican nominee for Governor or United States Senator, and he is worthy of either. THE NORTHERN PACIFIC. Its Winter Passenger Schedule Will Go Inte Effect November 4. Miner, 31st. On the 4th of November the Northern Pa cific railroad will put into effect its winter passenger time.

A burglar was caught in the act of robbing Dr. Hencke's house at Missoula a few nights ago, and lodged in jail. Mrs. Ilencke dis covered his presence, and her husband being absent, gave the alarm to her neighbors, Mr. Kirk and Mr. Lucy, who arrested the fellow. Mrs. Hencke was armed, but the fellow seeming drunk she did not shoot him. He was sober enough when put in jail, and had stolen jewelry, a gold watch and other valuables. A WARNING. The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that more persons die from diseases of the Throat and lungs than any other. It is probable that everyone, witheut exception, receives vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the system, and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling sen sation in the throat and if allowed to con. tinue their ravages they extend to the lungs producing Consumption, and to the head, causing Catarrh. Now all this is dangerous, and if allowed to proceed will in time cause death. At the onset. you must act with promptness; allowing a cold to go without attention is dangerous and may lose you your life. As soon as you feel that some thing is wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nostrils, obtain a bottle of Boschee's German Syrup. It will give you immediate relief. 962-lyeow NEW TO-DAY_ HAY FOR SALE, I offer for sale, at my ranch, near Helm ville, 100 tons of well-cured, well-stacked hay. For terms, apply to Chas. B.
