Thomas Taylor of Jamestown, a col lector for a machine firm and who has had opportunity from personal obser vation to know the sentiment of the state of Montana, in which he has been traveling for some time, writes the Jamestown Capital, stating that he finds a change in the political senti ment there. He says: "In my travels through the state I liave talked with many men of all oc cupations, cattle men, sheep men and business men. The business men pay that McKinley and solid monev are good enough. The sheep men say they have tried democracy and 5 cent wool and want no more of it The cattle men say when their neighbors are doing well they are satisfied, and last but not least the farmers say they have had enough of wild cat 1893 If '-:v Clark and Daly were out of the ffglit Montana would be strong republican they are each democrats and their fac tional fight is what carried the state' for Bryan in '!)(», but the people are getting their eyes opened and Clavii and Daly's money will not count tills time and Montana will roll up froiit live to ten thousand for McKinley. If old North Dakota don't double that just count me out and don't say I'm a citizen of Jamestown. I was sur prised when I came here, thinking of course 1 must say 'rah for Bryan or keep mum, but I soon found out differ ent. "Say, Bryan is going to lack about two times as much as he did.in witn that golden circle, lire in the rear, Stevenson, to hold him back. He is a goner. Then look at tne other side of the picture—Billy McKinley, the statesman and soldier, the American and the dashing Roosevelt. Why, they'll sweep the United States like a Dakota blizzard." ROOSEVELT'S TRIP. Governor Roosevelt's trip through the state was an auspicious opening of the campaign in North Dakota. Not withstanding the disagreeable weather there were immense crowds every where. Roosevelt is popular with the people as an honest, able, courageous public man. He mingles with the peo ple and is one of them. He forgets no friends, and spares no foes. He is the idol and ideal of a great share of the American people. His tour through the west will be remarkably effective. In South Dakota it has done much to overthrow Pettigrewism. Roosevelt speaks cooly, logically and dispassion ately, but his speeches are full of sound common sense. His address at the Atheneum Saturday night( one of the longest and best he has made on his tour according to the men who have accompanied him) was a clear ex iosiion of the duty of American citi zens. There was no oratorical effort to create prejudice, no rhodomontade, no bombast. It was an essay on good citizenship and the duty of the Amer ican citizen at this time, when the flag of the United States is more dan gerously assailed by misguided and demogogic people at home, than it is on the firing line. Governor Roose velt pointed out clearly the parallel between the present agitation against "imperialism" and that which was carried on through the nation during the closing years of the civil war. Honor, patriotism and good sense de mand that the government be not as sailed, but supported and upheld. Aside from his speeches, the gover nor's personality is effective. Peo ple who expected, perhaps, to see a cowboy with two revolvers at his sides, spurs and high-heeled boots, saw a plain spoken, modestly garbed, big hearted American citizen^ who has pushed himself to the front by cour age and honesty. They saw a practi cal man, who has given the state of New York one of the best administra tions it has ever had. They saw an American gentleman, and above all, they saw a man. Never does Roosevelt appeal to what is base in his audiences, or to hatred and bitterness. He urges what is good, and asks but for manly meeting and dealing with emergencies. His argu ments are based on logic and common sense. He puts spirit in the campaign and brings his hearers to see that what is best for all the people is best for the country. The keynote of his address Saturday night was that statement that the best government was that which gave every man the best oppor tunity to bring out what was in him. He believes that government will be best administered by the republican party, the party of progress, that moves onward with the times, and that does not, like its opposition, come to realize •what is good for the country only after crises are passed. "The Manufacturers' Record" says: "We publish today about five pages of letters, representing all lines of man ufacturing and general business inter ests in all parts of the country. ProB ably the most striking feature in the great majority of these letters is the fact that manufacturers claim to be so certain of the re-eleotion of Mr. Mc Kinley that they are going forward with their business plans on this as surance but, while taking this view of the case, they state that the election of Mr. Bryan would, in their opinion, be disastrous to the country. Out of the large number of letters received some two or three favor Mr. Bryan, but the sentiment is overwhelmingly against him. This is strikingly shown even in letters from various parts of the south, where, according t.o the statements made in letters from repu table men, there is a widespread hope that Mr. McKinley may ue re-elected." One of the questions put to all per sons subjected to inquisition by the census enumerators was "Length of residence?" An examination of a large number of reports at Washington re veals a persistent disposition to reply with the figures 20x40, 15x30,, and so on. That was not the response ex pected, but the recurrence of replies in 7m*. -u. BISMARCK WEEKLY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY, SEPT. 21 1900. that form, when it was hoped that it would tell how long the subject of the inquiry had resided in the place in which he was found, leads the census people to describe certain of the enum erators as prone to "consistent error." This revelation of the incapacity of the enumerators is not conducive to increased confidence in the census re turns. BRYAN AND HIS BOGIES. Eight years ago William Jennings Bryan, then just earning his proud sobriquet of "Boy Orator of the Platte," rose in the house of represen tatives and declared: Protection has been our cannibal tree, and one after another our farm ers have been driven by the force of circumstances upon that tree, and has been crushed within its folds, his com panions have stood around and shouted, "Great is Protection!" But the dream has passetl, the night has gone, and in the east we see more than the light of coming day. A marvelous change has taken place, and, rising from the political mourners' benches throughout the northwest, their faces radiant with a new-found joy, multi tudes are ready to declare their alle giance to the cause of tariff reform." In part the prophecy came true. Turning their backs on assured pros perity, the multitudes did face the mir age of the coming day, but the new found joy was short, the morning never dawned. Four years of depres sion, panic, business chaos and failure followed. Tariff tinkering, aided by the growing agitation for free silver, shut down the mills,, cut ofE employ ment, lowered wages and deprived the farmer of his markets. Did the orator and prophet stick to his guns? asks the New York Tribune. No. The Chicago convention declared that free silver was the "paramount" issue, and the leader of the new demo popracy obediently discovered that was the wicked gold standard hich was enslaving the human race. The tariff could wait. "Until this money question is fully and finally set tled," he wrote in his letter of accept ance, "the people will not consent to the consideration of any other import ant question." it Then the line of prophecy changed also, and is epitomized in the following from one of the candidate's numerous speeches: If you throw a stone in the air you know that it will come down. The law upon which we base our fight is as sure as the law of gravitation. If we have the gold standard, prices are as certain to fall as the stone thrown in the air. This prophecy was uttered after its falsity had been proved by sixty years of experience with the gold standard in the United States, and the people went ahead and voted for the gold standard, and congress subsequently reaffirmed the gold standard. Did prices fall? No. They went up. Farm products went up. Manufactured products went up. Wages went up. Business revived. Employment increased. Ac tivity succeeded depression, and in the four years that have since passed thu United States has enjoyed the most marvellous prosperity in its history. And now, in ivoo, the situation has changed again. Both the protection bogie and the gold bogie have outlived their usefulness, and a new bogj-i must be found. The Kansas City conven tion said it was imperialism, ar.d, nat urally enough, the oracle is therefore prophesying the destruction of the re 1 ublic because of the consistent appli cation of a policy in the Philippines which he himself made effective by in fluencing the ratification of the Paris treaty. It is just possible that a man who was so grossly mistaken on the tariff and on the money question may be mistaken on what is pleases him to call imperialism.. Hon. Frank White is popular through the state. His gallant record as a sol dier in the Philippines, clean public and private record, ability as a mn and official, make him a strong man with the people, and the applause that follows the mention of his name proves his standing with the people of the state. In the state he is a man of experience and trustworthiness. At home and abroad his popularity is increased by the influence of his good wife. Barnes county has reason to be proud of the representation it has upon the republican state ticket this year. We pote with pain that Editor Tuttle of the Mandan Pioneer so far forgot himself this week as to publish with out credit a portion of one of the Tri bune's "Prairie Breezes," the appear ance of which from time to time has caused Mr. Tuttle exceeding weariness. Doubtless the person who inserted the verse will be discharged, if not exe cuted on the spot, and by more careful attention than ever to the tooting of his own horn in the future. Mr. Tuttle will endeavor to clear the thus tar nished record of the Pioneer and atone to his readers. Newspaper correspondents of the effete east, representing those large S ..- daily papers that are commonly be lieved to move the universe and occa sionally jolt the fixed stars loose, have apparently a light regard for that ele ment of truth which should dignify the papers they represent. The case is illustrated in t.»e statements made by Mr. Ogden of the Chicago Tribune with regard to Jamestown. We do not know Mr. Ogden, but we have read of Ananias and several other pretty fair liars and Mr. Ogden should by all means get into the galaxy. Be cause Mr. Ogden did not find a delegation of prominent citizens waiting at Jamestown to convey his news matter to the telegraph office is poor excuse for such slanders as he circulated regarding Jamestown. The Chicago Tribune is a large paper and Jamestown is a small town, but Mr. Ogden's libeis have made the Tribune appear infinitely smaller than he paints Jamestown to be. We get nothing for espousing the cause of Jamestown. But we do not like to see such arrant injustice done because a newspaper correspondent with a pin head his entree to the columns of a daily paper that has circulation and influence. Joseph H. Manley is as quick as any politician in the country to perceive the drift of the tide, and it is most sig nificant that he should come out in favor of allowing the people of Maine a chance to repeal the prohibition sec tion of their constitution. It was in serted in 1884 by a majority which seemed overwhelming—70,"S3 yeas, to only 23,811 nays: but the affirmative vote fell short of being half the whole number of ballots cast for governor on the same day. This showed that a majority of the people did not then be lieve in the idea strongly enough to vote for it, and there is every reason to suppose that the number of such men is much smaller now. Moreover, the vote of 18S4 was taken when every man had to show how he stood, and a great many voters were morally bull dozed into supporting a policy which they did not favor whereas the Aus tralian system now prevails, and no body has to advertise what sort of a ballot he casts. Mr. Manley calls for the strict enforcement of the law, pend ing a possible repeal of the constitu tional provision, and if that could be secured, there would be little doubt as to the rejection of the prohibition pol icy when the voters could get at it. Resignations and withdrawals from the ticket were the principal matters attended to by the fusion state com mittee at Fargo. E. C. Carru'th of Grand Forks tendered 'his resignation as secretary of the state central com mittee, which was accepted and J. B. Mooney of Grand Forks was chosen to fill the position. The vacancy caused by the withdrawal of L. Stavnheim as a candidate for railroad commissioner, was filled by the appointment of Julius Wirkus of Minto. The vacancy caused by the withdrawal of Frank Williams of Grand Forks as a candidate for sec retary of stalte, was filled by the ap pointment of J. J. Stampen of Grand Forks. Carruth's resignation as sec retary of the committee was forced be cause of the opposition of union labor to the manner in which he conducts his office, it being non-union. Rather than unionize the office Carruth re signed his position. One of the best evidences of our na tional prosperity is found in a study of our exports and imports. For the month of August our imports were .$5 017,805 less than the corresponding period last year, while our exports were only .$1,383,541 less. For the eight months ending August 31 the balance of trade in our favor was •$351,037,219 against .$277,400,300. Imperialism is the paramount issue, according to the democrats, but if any one doubts whether Mr. Bryan has for sworn his allegiance to free silver let him read the democratic candidate's letter of acceptance. Fondness for free silver, and devotion to the rotten mopey heresy, stick out in every line o£ it. Mr. Bryan helped ratify the Span-sb Americau peace treaty so ',*ia he might create the issue of ifhporiali.sm. In other words, he stuffed a scar*"row with which he hopes to scare the Am erican people to death. This is states manship of the democratic kin-i.<p></p>ECZEMA And Every Form of Torturing Disfiguring Skin and Scalp Humors Cured by Qticura Bfekdt Cobb Tbkatkkst.—Bathe affected part* thoroughly with and CtmcraA Soap.

ALLRED DEAD Interesting Early History of the Terri tory Recalled by the Death of Captain Alired. Member of the Territorial Legislature Who Introduced the Capital Re moval Bill. Speaker E. A. Williams of the House in that Year Recalls the Circumstances. The sudden death of Captain L. J. Alired at Winona, Minn., last week re calls some early history of the terri tory of Dakota in which Captain All red was a prominent actor, the re moval of the capital of the territory from its location at Yankton to its present location at Bismarck. It was in the early days of the territory when the political atmosphere of the state was full of sensations. The sessions of the legislature were held at Yank ton ahd it was during the session of 1882-3 that the scheme to move the capital to Bismarck was set afoot by Alexander McKenzie and other prom inent characters In the politics of the northern part of the territory. Mc Kenzie's shrewdness had been proven in other things before this, but the re moval of the capital was the master piece of his strategy up to that time. During the session of that year, the capital removal agitation was afoot. The partisans of South Dakota and the backers of Yankton were alert all through the session. They watched every legislative move, thinking it might have some significance as affect ing the capital question, and were pre pared to fight any move to that end to the death. But while they were watch ing the men from the north were work ing. They, canvassed the two houstes and figured out a bare majority for re moval. It was necessary to keep the matter absolutely quiet and to let no hint of the plans reach the South Da kota men. The session moved along until nearly tl^ end. The South Da kota men breathed freer. They thought the time of danger was passed. The last days of the session rolled around, and the time came when it was necessary to have unanimous consent to introduce bills. The capital re moval matter was thought to have dropped. Then came the sensation of the ses sion. The work of the legislature was nearly done. All of the bills that had been introduced had been reported on. The members of the lower house were not attentive. Some of them paid lit tle attention to what was passing in the house. When there was a little lull in the proceedings, Captain All red, who represented Cass county in •the lower house in a matter of fact tone, betraying nothing of the import of what he was to ask, arose and asked unanimous consent to introduce a bill. Captain Alired had been selected to introduce the capital removal bill. He was not known to be identified with the capital removal movement. There was no suspicion that, the bill would prove other than a bill to create a road somewhere, or provide for some legis lation of a minor character. E. A. Williams, .the present surveyor gen eral of North Dakota, then represent ing Burleigh county in the legislature, was speaker of the house. He hetard the request of Mr. Alired and paused: "Are there any objections?" he asked. Life of The Master By the Rev. JOHN WATSON, D. D.

The bill was sent up to the clerk's desk. It was the bill to remove the capital from Yankton, and appointing a commission to locate it. Pande monium broke loose. Members who had been half dozing sprang to their feet. "I object" was howled from half a dozen parts of the hall. There were shouts, objections and yells from all parts of the chamber. The South Dakota men who had been watching for just such an occurrence during the session -had been caught off their guard. The lobbies and halls of the chamber filled up with Yankton men, howling that the bill be not received. Speaker Williams sat with his gavel in his hand, firm and immovable. "Unanimous consent having been granted" he ruled, "It cannot be with drawn." The eonfusion became worse. The sergeant-at-arms was ordered by the speaker to clear the chamber. Or der was finally restored, and the bill was placed on its. first and second readings and passed. It went through the council and became the law and Yankton lost the capital. The com mission located it at Bismarck. General Williams said today in speaking of the matter: "I remember the circumstances of the introduction of the bill very well Captain Alired had not, I think, introduced a bill dur ing the session, and When he arose and gravely asked consent to introduce a bill, have it read the first, second and third time and placed upon its final passage, no one suspected but it was some agricultural measure. I repeated the motion and asked if there was objection. Hearing none, I declared consent granted. It was necessary to get unanimous consent or to suspend the rules, and had there been objec tion neither one could have been ac complished. It was also necessary to get the bill through the house that day or it could not have been gotten through the council. As soon as the clerk started to read the bill, there was pandemonium, but I ruled that unani mous consent having been granted, it could not be withdrawn. The bill went through the house that day and subsequently passed the council." SET BACK. MINERS REFUSE TO LEAVE WORK, AND SOME MINES HAVE FULL FORCES. Wilkesbarre, Sept. 19.—The first ser ious setback fpr the miners was the operation of the west end mine at Mo canaqua which has a full force. The committee could make no impression on the men going to work.' The com pany has sent for Pinkertons. Great numbers of miners are leaving for bi tuminous fields about Pittsburg. WU'S VIEW. Washington, sept 10.—Minister Wu this morning laid before the state de partment his views of the demand of Germany that the leaders of* the anti foreign movement be delivered to the powers before negotiations are begun. The demand, Wu says, is impossible to have as a condition, and puts a stop to negotiations and Is equivalent to an nouncing the dismemberment of tbe empire. The demand was evidently aimed at the empress and Prince Tuan.
