The Herald was in error in its statement last week that Joe Rocco, 1 Bainville man arrested last week for, the alleged theft of horses from a far mer near the state line, had been bound over to appear before the dis- j trict court. His bond, which had been j made a cash one in the sum of $500, was for his appearance here Tuesday,, August 8, before Judge N. B. Lud owese for preliminary hearing; and when the day arrived it was found that Rocco had disposed of his proper- ' ty near Bainville and had left the country. As the cash forfeited was his own it is believed that Rocco | thought it would be worth .$">00 to j him not to have to stand trial on the charges. In leaving Bainville, the fu gitive carefully refrained from leaving \ any forwarding address or other in dication of bis present whereabouts.— Williston Herald.

WANTS TO KNOW WHERE THE REST OF US ARE TO COME IN Has a farmer a right to build or re pair his own wagon-box without com ing in conflict with the wagon-box makkers' union? Will the railroad bro therhoods still consent to haul to city markets grain that hes been delivered to the elevator in home-made wagon boxes? If so, isn't it an oversight on their part? But if the farmer does have the right to build or repair the wagon-box in which he hauls wheat from ranch to elevator without the consent of the union, why hasn't he the right, to build or repair the larger wagon-boxes known as freight cars, in which his wheat continues on its jour-1 ney to the ultimate consumer without the consent of the unions? Are the railways built and main tained for the benefit of the com panies, the unions, or the general puh man j lie? Isn't tfie man who hauls the wheat to market as much an employee i of the farmer as the man who helps harvest and thresh it? He deals with one direct .with the other through an agent. And when the agent and em J. L. TRUSCOTT Heavy Hardware and Farm Machinery Lands for Sale or Rent GLASGOW. MONTANA ployee can't agree as to Wages, hasn't the real employer a right of a word to say. The three outside members of the U. S. Railroad Labor Board are there to represent the men who produce stuff to be shipped, the miner, the lumberman and the farmer, and the price of our products isn't determined by the standard of living we would like to enjoy, and when it is necessary to save a crop by gathering it on Sun day we don't get price and a half for it. In the administration of Andrew Jackson a body of men known and or ganized as the State of South Car olina attempted to nullify an act of congress, and Andrew said: "By the Eternal, you shall." In the Adminis tration of Warren G. Harding a body of men known and organized as the Federated Shop Crafts have attempt ed to nullify a decision of a lawfully created tribunal. Has Warren got the grit of Andrew to say, "You shall"? We have complained that rich of fenders escape the penalty for misdo ing by taking advantage of the intri cacies and delays of our legal system; if to this we add bodies of men ! g0 powerfully organized as to openly defy the power of courts and tribunals i e} r a ]]y created for the purpose of 1 peaceful settlement of disputes, how jf ar are we from a state of anarchy, ^ jf the capitalists can buy special pri . vileges and the unions can force them, ; where, oh where, do the rest of us ' come in.
