Montana, Audi st 14, iSSfi. The Republicans have at last called their convention, and will go for the Democrats tooth and nail. Most of our exchanges speak of the ••de mise" of S. J. Tilden. Is the good old Anglo-Saxon word, death , obsolete? The columns of the Tribune are open to subscribers for the discussion of any of the questions now agitating the public mind. -Samuel J. Tilden was buried last Satur day. Though a bitter partisan, he yet was a great and honorable man. I lis is "one of the few, the immortal names that were not born no die." Now comes a story of a man in Califor nia living upon raw food, fattening upon one meal a day, composed of a pound of cracked wheat, a few hickory nuts and a little honey. Won't some of our friends test it? If there is any economical way of living like this, the editor wants to know it. The gossips figure the wealth of four teen I'nited States Senators at $151,000, 000. Is it not strange that so many rich men should happen to meet in one little room—sent there, mind you, not to ad vance their own interests (like a railroad ]>ool of magnates) but to preserve the liber ties and blessings of the people!—Chicago C nrreut. A French engineer, M. Estrade, has made a locomotive which is expected to run seventy-eight miles an hour. It will be highly useful to the office-seeker when tiie President telegraphs to come to Wash ington. United States Judges will un doubtedly travel behind it when Jay Gould asks them to accept his attorneyships — Chicago Current. The money power not only profits bv holding call-bonds at interest on which bank-notes are obtained for a second in terest, hut the Secretary, with all his "un available cash"—some $11.' ,000,000—man ages to let the banks have something like $114,000,000 on deposit. A full Treasury, during the past two years (while the peo ple were undergoing extraordinary priva tions; while every small business man was having his hopes blasted) lias meant an un usual feast for Usury,—Chicago Current. The Helena Daily Herald is not far wrong when it says; "For our part, we can see no sense or justice in forever cod dling these bondholders. They have been treaved with a liberality never before par alleled in history, and instead of gratitude it lias only begotten arrogance. They whine if the Government calls their bonds for payment at all, and whine louder still if they are not allowed to dictate in what kind of coin they arc to be paid. If silver, was higher than gold, they would swear that it was the understanding, and that they expected to he paid in silver. Pay them off, and get rid of them as soon as possible, we say." May not Gladstone's grasp of affairs be partly due to the sense of his wife. Here is a little speech she made in support of the candidature for Parliament of a Mr. White : "My friends," she said, "I thank you with all my heart for this touching reception ; hut I well know for whose sake it is given —my husband's. Let me tell you that his heart is with you, though his voice cannot travel this distance. And now, my friends, 1 think I cannot do better than give you a message from him, which, if you will al low me, I will read. He bids you, the peo ple 01 this country, to bethink yourselves of the position in which you stand ; to look back upon the history of the past, and for ward to the prospect of the future ; to lis ten to prudence and courage and honor. What a privilege for you to help redress the wrongs of Ireland! The battle is begun. You are to help win it. Rally round our friend Mr. White. Think of all his work of mercy and devotion on other occasions, and, as my husband says, in the beautiful words of our great poet, 'Ring out the old, ringln the new." Ring out the notes and the memory af the past discord. So may you ring in the blessed reign of peace. God grant that it may be so!" THK BLACK 1 , 1 ST. Stanford, Dolph. Harrison, Sherman, j Spooner, Sawyer. Palmer and Conger. It j was to be expected that the other fifteen., eastern Senators, would stand in with the , gold-power, but these ten men, any one of i whom could have turned the gold-hug j helpless on its back, are western men. j There is nothing new in the information , but their names deserve to be remembered. • These :nen deliberately chose to betray j their sections, to advance the interests of | the bond-holders. Who cares whether they be Republicans or Democrats? They are not patriots. John Sherman, the polit cal weather vane, was ready enough some time ago to tickle the west with Ills silver pig bill, but now the silver-pig swallows the tailings thrown him by the goldite swineherd. Save the list. Forget all else, but let these name* "live within the book and volume of your brain, un mixed with baser matter"—unmixed with baser matter simply because there can be nothing baser than the names of these corporation boot licks. REPUBLICAN CONVENTION. : ; The Thirteenth regular bi-ennial Re publican Territoriol Convention of the Ter ritory of Montana will be held at Hutte, on Wednesdays the 15 th day of Septembers 18S6, at 1 2 o'clock, noon, for the purpose of nom inating a candidate for Delegate in Con gress and the transaction of sucli other business as in the judgment of the Çon vention appertains to the welfare of the Republican Party in Montana. The several Counties of the Territory will be entitled to representation in the Territorial Republican Convention as fol lows, to wit ; COUNTIES. NO. DELEGATES.

It is desired that sufficient notice of such Conventions be given. The Territorial Republican Committee respectfully re commends that the said County Conven tions be held early in September, but such date should be fixed therefore as, after giv ing due notice to the Republicans of the Counties, will be most convenient. It is presumed that the custom hereto fore prevailing in the several Counties of the Territory whereby Delegates to the Territorial Convention are elected from the respective Counties by the Conventions which assemble to nominate County of ficers will prevail during the present year. To the end that all Counties in the Ter ritory, remote from or near to the place of holding the Territorial Convention, shall have opportunity to be represented therein fairly, and to prevent any extraneous in terference with the deliberate desires of the Republicans of each County, the fol lowing rules have been prescribed by for mer Conventions for the government of the Republican Territorial Conventions in the Territory of Montana ; i—Delegates and Alternate Delegates shall be elected in the future to Territorial Conventions, and in the event of the fail ure of a Delegate to attend, the Alternate Delegate shall cast the vote of the Del egate whose Alternate he is. 3—In tiie absence of a Delegate and his Alternate a majority of the Delegation from that County, shall cast the vote of the absentee. 3— In the absence of all the Delegates and Alternate Delegates from any County, no vote shall be cast for such County. 4— In the County in which the Territo rial Convention shall be held, when any Delegate and his Alternate Delegate arc absent there shall be no vote cast in their behalf. 5— Delegates and Alternates must be Republican residents of the Coun ty which they represent. By order of the Territorial Republican Committee. A. J. Seligmax, I. D. McCutcheon, Secretary. Chairman. of a REPUBLICAN CRNTRAL COMMITTEE OF BEAVERHEAD COUNTY. Tiie member» of the Republican Central Committee of Beaverhaad County are re quested to meet at my office in Dilion on Wednesday evening, August iSth 1886, at S o'clock p. m. for the purpose of arranging for the holding of the County Convention and the apportionment of delegates thereto from the different precincts. B. F. Whitk, Chairman AD.IOUKNEI». Congress adjourned last week In the work of the session there ha* been little done of national importance. Tlu- majority of the bills passed were only of local interest, such as those for bridging rivers, tor the removal of political disbili ties, and pension bills. There were few ofthat wide-reaching influence that would entitle them to the name of the national. The most important bill passed—that tax ing olomargarine—is manifestly unjust. Ifbutterine is detrimental to the public health its sale should he forbidden alto gether. Evils should be prohibited not taxed. But if on the contrary butterine is a legitimate article of industry, butter lias no more right to tax it, than it has to tax butter. But the Congress has been dis tinguished rattier for what it has left un done than for wiiat it has done. The bill for the increase of our little army was de feated as was the best hill of the session, the Bland Bill for the free coinage of sil ver. And the greatest question of the day. the labor question, upon the solution and the settlement of which must depend the very preservation of free government, was quietly ignored Regarding the doings of this congress, what strikes one particularly is the ap parent one-man power that has been exert ing itself quietly but mos* aggressively and potently. Though the President bears not a reputation for party-popularity, and naturally he is not popular with tiie opposite party, yet for all that he has had his own way throughout. There were, if we are not mistaken, 36 Senate hills, and 77 House bills vetoed by him, and though these vetoed bills were reported back from the committees with tiie recommendation that they be passed notwithstanding the President's disapproval, yet there was but one—and that a small pension bill —that was passed by the two houses over the veto. Either the President is a most res olute character, or the Congress weak and hastv. Which? try. Tl-'.KKITOKIAIa DEMOCRATIC CON VENTION. At the meeting of the Territorial Demo cratic Ceutra!

Incase of a rumpus, they would shrink so small, that they could hide under a composing stick. There is no need to fight. Mexico is right. Ifa man makes an ass of himself, he ought to get his deserts, and it makes no difference to us whether Cutting is ini prisoned or hung. If he is an American, he is of that sort that this country can eas ily afford to lose. The only pity is that Bayard acted so hastily in demanding the release of the brute. Tiie pain-banisl-~r is a name applied to St. Jacobs Oil, by the millions who have been cured of rheumatism and neuralgia by its use. NOTICE OF VINA1. ENTRY. t.ANT> OKI U K. AT IlKI.l-.HA, M.
