The Pianos we sell have made
a reputation for themselves,
and have gained a place at the
Pinnacle of Piano Popularity
by their own merits, sweetness
of tone, easy and responsive
action, beauty of design shown
in the cases. Durability, in
fact, by e/erything that goes
toward making piano perfec
tion. The musical value of a
piano depends largely on its
tone. Our pianos are noted
for long sustained, or singing
qualities, produced by a homeo
genous arrangement of the
entire instrument, and the care
given to the smallest details of
cor^truction. No other pianos
approach their beauty, grandeur
and volume. You will only
need to hear them to appre
ciate their merits. If you want
to get the best for your money,
don't buy until you figure here.
You can name your -oiwn terms.

Speaker Cannon Exercising Great Care arf to
Selection of a Jury.
t^shington, Dec. 1.—Representative
W. R. Hearst of newspaper fame is to
be a member of the house committee on
labor, and the other democratic members
of the same committee will be as radical
as Hearst in their ideas. This has come
about through Speaker Cannon's request
that John Sharp Williams, the minority
leader, name the minority members of
house committees.
Mr. Williams' list ftSis been approved
by the speaker, with scarcely an
amendment, and yet there was consid
erable ground for amendment, had the
speaker been disposed to occupy it,
but having asked Mr. Williams for
suggestions, he felt bound to follow
The democratic members of .the labor
committee will all be rampant agitalors
and radicals of a very pronounced type,
with Hearst at their head, and the speak
flood of bills. He wants an eight-hour
well poised was to see that the repub
lican members were selected with the
greatest care. It is said that the republi
can assignments on this committee Have
worried the speaker more than the as
signments on any other committee, ,imd
that he made them up just before the
committee list went to the printer.
Without question Hearst will use his
position on this committee to strengthen
the idea that he is the particular cham
pion of labor, hoping thfcreby to help
his presidential boom. Democrats on
the committee with him will help? to
that end. Possibly nothing will come
oi it. i
The committee is of little importance
so tar as the republicans are concerned,
but it is understood that Hearst has a
flood of bill. He wants an eight-hour
law efiacted. and a law taking away
from the federal courts the injunction
right. For both of these he will make
a spectacular fight and it is very impbrt
ant that the republican members of this
committee be level-headed men—not
necessarily that they may oppose .this
legislation, for it may be desirable to
enact it—but that the committee may
be sure to present its reports on bills
to the house in a proper manner.

The Montana Legislature Expected, to EiUfct
Measures to Mflp Mlnln* Interests.
Helena, Mont., Dec: i^The extra
ordinary session of the Montana legis
lature which convened today ui pur
suance of the call issued three weeks
pgo by Governor Toole is likely to be

fierce and as intensely interesting as
the session of several years ago which

The aim of the session ip 'tQ pass a
law whereby mining cases maf be tak
en from one court to another when the
judge in the initial court is shywn to

character has also been promised. A
so-called Fair Trial bill, of the charac
ter now proposed, was passed by the
last legislature, but was decided by the
supreme court to be unconstitutional

The present situation is dtje to a
coup executed hy F. Augustus Heinze,
president of the United Copper Co.,
and the arch.enemy of the^ Amalgamat
ed interests. One of his lieutenants a
young man nanied JoJin MacGinnis,
was the owner of a few shares, of the
Boston and Montana Cojpper Qo. He
secured a decision from District Judge
Clancy restraining the Boston and
Montana Co., from paying dividends to
the Amalgamated, on the ground that
it is contrary to the lavVS of Montana
for one corporation to own stock in
another corporation. Furthermore, on
application, he secured a decision from
Judge Clancy in which the latter said
he might at any time appoint a receiver
for the Boston and Montana. By these
decisions the Amalgamated was badly
hampered, and, the "fair trial"'bill be
ing nullified by the supreme court, it
could not secure the transfer* of the
matter to another court. -s.-
After vainly bringing pressure to
bear upon the governor to call a spe
cial session of the legislature, the
