Mixing With Non -Partisans JEANETTE RANKIN SOCIALIST MEMBER OF CON GRESS FROM MONTANA ELECTED ON REPUB LICAN TICKET MAKES SPEAKING TOUR WITH NOTED NON-PARTISAN LEADERS. It seems from present developments that "our own Jeanette" is willing to do anything to get elected to the sen ate cf the United States for which office she has declared herself a can didate. The Montana Record-Herald records her as follows in a recent article: "Jeannette Rankin: Socialist mem ber of congress from Montana, elected on the republican ticket will make an extended speaking tour with A. C. Towr.ley, president of the Non-Par tisan league and former state organ izer for the socialist party in North Dakota. Miss Rankin opposed the president's conscription bill and re fused to vote for war against the im perial German government. She is well known as a pacifist, friend of Dunn, Campbell, Shannon. Mary O'Neill and other socialists and Wob blies of Butte. Miss Rankin's can didacy for the United States senate in Montana will receive the support of Townley and his friends." Another idea of the schemes she has adopted to attract attention is the one contained in an eastern publica tion which says: "I: remains for Miss Jeanette Ran kin. the only woman member of con gress to cap the climax of legislative manhandling of the newspaper situa tion. One hundred and seventy-one boys will leave Glasgow for Camp Dodge, Iowa, the morning of July 24. The quota for Valley county is 169 but two men transferred from other states will join the quota. The train will leave Glasgow at 7 o'clock in the morning and appropriate exercises will be held in Glasgow the night before. Chief Clerk Wolking, this week re ceived instructions that thirteen men will be ordered to entrain for Camp Fremont, Cal., during the five day period commencing August for gen eral military service and applicants will be inducted into the service be fore that time. The following is the revised list of the July contingent from Valley coun ty that will leave 7 a. m. July 24: Redfield, Frank, Aleva, Wis. Knudson, Andrew L,., Hinsdale. Randall, Loyal, Opheim.

"Zone rates are lost to sight, censor ship is relegated to the rear, govern ment advertising becomes a dead is sue, and the press agent and popa ganda fiends assume the shape almost of savious of the nation. " Miss Rankin proposes that all American newspapers should be owned and issued by the United States. "Each town should have only one ewspaper, edited by an editorial board and the government should issue the newspaper free of charge. "The newspaper should print only the truth, and it should not contain any advertisements. "Thus newspaper advertising of all kinds would be abolished at one full swoop. While such a proposal will be re garded quite as seriously as one of Don Quixote's windmill charges, nev ertheless it is an indication of thorough understanding of the news paper situation Miss Rankin will bring into play when as one of our national legislators she will be called upon ■to nass upon bilis affecting the interest of newspaper publications." Anyone with the least common sence can see the trend of socialistic ideas in such an insane proposition that goes without saying will not be taken ser iously by anyone outside of the circles of the Wobhlies and their ilk.

DROUGHT STRICKEN FARMERS TO BE GIVEN AID BY COUNCIL OF DEFENSE STATE COUNCIL OF DEFENSE WILL MEET IN HELENA MONDAY TO PLAN RELIEF AND ALL LINES OF INDUSTRY WILL BE REPRESENTED —THE GATHERING IS CALLED BY THE GOVERNOR AND MERCHANTS AND BANKERS ARE URGED TO ATTEND AND JOIN MOVEMENT. HORACE S. ENSIGN TAKEN FOR CALIFORNIA SENATOR Genial Secretary of Montana Fair Association Hiram Johnson's Double. "How are you senator," said a port ly gentleman in the lobby of the Placer hotel at Helena, recently, when he ex tendede his hand of greeting to Horace S. Ensign, the genial secretary of the Montana State Fair association. "Where do you get that senator stuff," said Mr. Ensign. "I have been called too late for breakfast and then called everything else, but never senator before." "Am I not addressing Senator Hiram Johnson of California?" said the portly one. "You are certainly not," retorted Mr. Ensign. "My error," said the portly one as he looked at the rotund face of Mr. Ensign, dubiously and doubtfully. "If you are not Senator Johnson," said the portly man." You are a most wonderful double." Explanations fol lowed and all was well. Harry Ensign, it is said has often been taken for the virile statesman who, while governor of the Golden state, was elected by the largest plur ality ever given a senatorial candidate to the United States senate from Cal ifornia. "The people of Montana were most fortunate in securing the services of Horace Ensign," said a prominent min ing and business man of Utah, while visiting in Helena. "Mr. Ensign piloted the destinies of the Utah State Fair association for several years gith great success and he is just the man you want to bring out to the people of Montana the knowledge of the wonderful resources of every kind that you have in the "Treasure State." "He is a man of versatility and energy and his personality radiates in every direction and that the state fair that will be held in Montana in September will lie a grand success is a foregone conclusion." It is announced from the general offices of the Fair association that great interest is being evidenced in the coming- fair which, from all indi cations, will be one of the most succ essful fairs ever held in the state. BAKER SENT TO JAIL. After conviction on a charge of driv ing sheep from the customary range, the property of Murray and jamieson, J. J. Baker, was sentenced to serve twenty-five days in the county jail in default of the payment of a fine of $50 assessed by Justice of Peace Kamp fer. Baker was arrested on complaint of Mayor Matt Murray and the offense is alleged to have taken place on the reservation. Baker was remanded to the custody of Sheriff Powell to serve his sentence. CHARGED WITH ASSAULT. A warrant was sworn out Monday aeainst Emil Hat by Rudolph Gunde'r charging the former with an assault on the latter. The case was filed before Justice of the Peace Kampfer and will come up for trial next week. GENERAL RAIN COVERS STATE Longest Continuous Downpour This Season Descends on Almost the Whole State. OF MOST BENEFIT TO STOCKMEN Late Spring Grain, Flax and Corn Somewhat Benefitted; Preripita tation at Glasgow Nearly Half Inch. The rain that began falling Sunday morning was not only general over Montana except in the northwestern and the extreme eastern portions of the state, but was also the longest con tinuous rain this year. While it came too late to benefit the majority of the dry land crops, it was not too late to benefit late spring grain, flax and corn. But it means much more to the stock men than to the farmers. It will re vive the ranges, fill up dried water holes and will greatly improve the livestock situation in the state. The rain stopped Sunday night and then began again Monday morning. Helena is credited with the heaviest precipitation, .84 of an inch falling to t> o'clock last night there was .24 here up to 6 o'clock this morning. Up of an inch at Bozeman, .34 at Glas .36 at Lewistown and .78 at Great Falls. Up to 6 o'clock this morning Havre reported .14 of an inch and Miles City, .06 of an inch.

Smith, one of the charming and popular young school teachers of the public school of Grand Relief is in sigh" for the farmers cf Valley end js,'u..ng counties who have lost their 1918 chances for crops by the recent drought. Several prom inent business men of Glasgow will take part in the movement on foot for assisting those in need. Representatives of practically all lines of industry in Montana will at tend the meeting of the state council of defense to be held here Monday to take action looking toward secur ing federal aid for the relief of farm ers who have suffered whole or partial crop failure for two yeyars and who must abandon their farms unless re lief is forthcoming. In calling the meeting, Governor ... Stewart wrote to members: "I am anxious that every member should be present and that each one may come fortified by such information as may be available to him, or to her, on the crop situation. We will be asked to take action of some kind and we ought to Be as well advised as pos sible. I have gone about the state sible. I have gone about the state some and feel that I have a fair de gree of information on the subject, but I know that you will have more information about your part of the state than any yone else can acquire. There will be county councilmen, rep resentatives of farmers' organizations, bankers, government officials and other interested parties present to discuss the matter." All are Willing. Secretary C. D. Greenfield, who at tended the meeting of the presidents of the farm bureaus of Havre, where arrangements were made for the gathering of data so that detailed in formation would be available as to conditions, states in a letter inviting persons to the meeting, that he sub ject of co-operative effort was taken up with Governor Stewart and mer chants, bankers, elevator and fiour mill men. "I have found all of these interests are quite willing to co-operate most heartily in the plan outlined at Havre to secure federal aid," he continues. "Whatever success may attend this effort to obtain federal aid, it is be lieved will be largely due to the fact that the farmers who are most di i rectly and vitally affected be the niov ! ing spirits and the foundation of the I move:» nt. The banking, mercantile I and ofher interests will be a strong force in co-operative, but the initiative (Continued on page five). to be most effective must come from QUENTIN ROOSEVELT GIVES UP HIS LIFE « ON FIELD OF BATTLE London.

SECRET SERVICE MEN AFTER BOOTLEGGERS FEDERAL REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR PAST TWO WEEKS AND MAKE CATCH OF MEN ALLEGED TO BE SHIP PING BOOZE INTO WASHINGTON. For the past two weeks a number of secret service men have been in and out of Glasgow working on a case of conspiracy to violate the Webb-Ken yon act prohibiting the shipment of intoxicating liquor into dry territory and the investigation resulted in mak ing an arrest according to information received this week in Glasgow. When deputy United States mar shals, Monday, intercepted two ship ments of Sunnybrook whiskey, des tined for somewhere in the bone-dry state of Washington, it being pre sumed, Spokane, the dream of pro fits of E. C. Oliver and George Casey vanished into thin air like a kid's bal loon at a circus, and incidentally these two gentlemen were thrust into the county jail of Mineral county at Superior, where they languish in that old famous durance vile. 24,000 Gurgles. The combined shipments consisted of 748 quarts of Sunnybrook. The larger shipment was composed of 694 quarts, which were alleged to be sent by Oliver and the remaining 54 quarts are alleged to have been shipped by Casey. The booze was wrapped in camouflaged packages and found in an express tar at Saltese, a short distance east of the Idaho line, on the Northern Pacific, where the men were arrested. Immense Profiteering. At the retail market price of Sun nybrook, $3 per quart, the whiskej shipment represents a commercial val ue of $2,244. Calculating that the men would have asked not less than $5 a quart or $2 profit—assuming the fact to be that they intended to sell the liquor in "bone-dry" territory, their profits would have been $4,488, and this would have been for a period of about a month, judging from the ready sale "red likker" has in Sahar an territory these days.

The following persons were given NON-PARTISAN HEIDS IN STATE Bolsheviki Townley and Gover nor Frazer Make Speeches to Bozeman Faithful. MISS RANKIN MIXES WITH BUNCH Many Wobblies Present and Jeanette Practically Alligns Herself in Non-Partisan League Ranks. The American Bolsheviki have en tered the state of Montana with the hopes of rileying the political waters of the state and after being refused permission to hold public gatherings in Idaho and Washington and many parts of Montana, finally pulled off a speech fest in Gallatin county. The following account of the affair is given by a citizen of Glasgow who attended the doings in person: In a saturnalia of speech-making in a beautiful grove northwest of Bozeman, Boss Townley of the Non Partisan league, Doctor Buncombe Craighead. Congresswoman Jeannette Rankin. Governor Lynn Frazier of North Dakota and Leo Daly of the Butte wobbly Bulletin and others last Sunday protested hours upon end that the leadership and the membership of the league is loyal to the United States in the war against the central powers. Every single one of the speakers devoted practically his entire time answering the charges of disloyalty that have been made against the league leadership. Like the Shakes pearean female, they protested ve hemently and constantly. The whole program of the Non-Partisan league was sidetracked for patriotic speeches. Even Miss Rankin, who found it impossible to vote in favor of the resolution declaring war upon Ger many, worked herself into a pitch of patriotic fervor. Townley developed into home war winner on his own account and talked life 17 four-min ute men all rolled into one. Doc Craighead punctured the atmos phere for a space of two hours urg ing the people to get in and whip the Hun. Governor Frazier talked war and little else. In fact the meeting was a regular warhoop from start to finish. Governor Frazier, Miss Rankin, Dr. Craighead and Leo Daly were hard put to it to keep the crowd in good humor until the big boss should arrive. Townley was late and he did not get to the grounds until after 5 o'clock. The governor took two or three shots at the game. He told innumerable stories and he's a good story teller. He could make good in a monologue on Keith time. He spoke an hour the first time he started and when Miss Rankin and Dr. Craig head had run down the governor step ped into the breach once more. Then Leo Daly spelled him and after which the governor took a long breath and talked some more. Before the gov ernor run down in his last heat, the (Continued on page five). a license: Clyde F.
