Tlie Thirteenth regular hi-enniai Re publican Territoriol Convention of the Ter ritory of Montana will be held at Hutte. on II 'rduesday, Ihr 1 §th day of September , 1 JSS6, at 12 o'clock, noon, for the purpose of nom mating u candidate for Delegate in Con gress and the transaction of such other business as in the judgment of the Con vention appertains to tlie 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 : ((UNTIES, Beaverhead........ Choteau...........

The County Republican Committees of the several Counties will proceed to call County Conventions in their respective Counties and elect Delegates and Alternate Delegates from each of the said counties to the Territorial Convention above desig nated. It is desired that sufficient notice of such Conventions be given. The Territorial Republican Committee respectfully re commends that tlie 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 eacli County, the fol lowing rules have been prescribed b y for mer Conventions for tlie 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, tlie Alternate Delegate shall cast the vote of the Del egate whose Alternate he is. I» tlie 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 tlie 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 he held, when anv Delegate and his Alternate Delegate are absent there shall be no vote cast in their behalf. Â —Delegates and Alternates must be Republican residents of the Coun ty which they represent. By order of tlie Territorial Republican Committee. A- J. Sei.igma.\, I. D. MiCi tciieon, Secretary.

At the meeting of tlie Territorial Demo cratic Ceutral Committee, held at Helena, the following resolution was adopted: Itcsotvnt , That tlie Territorial Conven tion do meet at Helena at 13 o'clock, m., on Tuesday, the twenty-fourth day of August next.

S. take a slice otl Mexico, let it digest the Mormons, anarchists and southern negroes. A Massachusetts Republican says that the party in the west is for Blaine "with a little intermittent howiing for I.ogan." * I .ate advices from England prove that in one third of Ireland, Home Rule is net the choice of a majority of the people. Silver is a medium of exchange in the mat kets of the world, except in England and Portugal where it is used for tokens only. Now comes a story of a Baltimore paper iiruling a negro 153 years old still in his prime. Let us fall hnck on the sea serpent. Tlie Inter-Mountain puts the Mugwump vote in tlie Territory at 100. Is it possible that there are hut 100 men in Montana who are not seeking office? The photographs of tlie Grand Army veterans, appearing in the San Francisco Evening Post must have been taken while the sun was obscured bv tlie clouds of war. Tlie Pope of Rome lias condemned tlie Knights of Labor in Canada but Cardinal Gibbons at Baltimore says that the Catho lic prelates will, to a man, declare in favor of the organization in the United States. When Ingham, in the trial of the Chi cago anarchists, said, "As a turkey buzzard spews Ills vomit upon the fair fields, so Europe spewed Johann Most upon these shores," he east a slur upon a most useful bird. The President's appointment of Daniel Magone as Collector at New York will not furnish an opportunity for the New York Tribune to get oft'any of its "funny business" about "oflice* is a public trust." Magone was one of Tilden's chief aids in punishing the canal robbers' ring. It seems that the law against minors drinking in saloons and gambling is not enforced in Butte, that wickedest burg in the west. The best way for parents to keep their boys out of saloons is to pro vide suitable amusements for them at home. Evidently Mrs. Gladstone believes in tlie ability of lier husband. During the late Parlimentary election, a lady friend called and said : "These are troublous times, Mrs. Gladstone, but "there is One above who will see through it all." "Yes." said the Prime Minister's wife, "take a seat, he will lie down presently. The rage for great editors goes on una bated. We hear the Graphic Netvs is ne gotiating witli Hon. Carl Schurz on the basis of $5,000 a year. Mr. Schurz is we believe the most versatile of men, though we think lie lias had more success as rebel, Senator, Secretary, General, orator and piano player than editor.—Chicago Current. Miss Ada Sweet,who served lier country as pension agent at Chicago for several years, is now in Europe. Some of the pa liers are making merry over tlie report that she is heralded in European circles as tlie Hon. Miss Sweet. She is more worthy of tlie title than the narrow-headed partisan who was instrumental in her dismissal. The Inferior calls for postal savings. So say we, Why thould we be so far be hind the rest of the world? Are we then beyond doubt a government of tlie people by corporations for corporations. We ap proach this belief unwillingly. But give us postal telegraph and savings—as the King used to give his signet—an earnest of our surviving liberties—Chicago Cur rent. It now transpires that the news of the heroic death of Miss Jane McArthur in trying to save the lives of Judge Arm strong's family while crossing Uie Sun River, is a hoax. There is no Judge Arm strong in tlie Territory and Miss McAr thur is still alive. No doubt it was fun for the humorist who conceived this hoax to read his fiction in all tlie Montana papers, and to find that a subscription to build a monument to his heroine was being raised. Ohio lias formed an organization which is to settle the liquor question by taking it out of politics. It a secret organization called the Home Guards, and is composed of members of both parties in exactly the same proportion. All the members pledge themselves to vote for Prohibition ists only. What nonsense! In a state like Ohio where the ballot is secret, how is one member to know that tlie others will keep their pledge? Why should not prohibition be carried into politics? And why should a citizen of this free country join a secret organization to vote Ills honest sentiments? is a THE CUTTING A CCA lit. j Though the human race is supposed to have long ago evolved from the lower type, yet there are still not a few men of tlie same pugnacious spirit of our savage progenitors, and who seem, like the dodo and duckbill, to have been providentially preserved as specimens of thi., age when man was in a state of transition. They are up in arms at the slightest hint of insult, or what they choose to regard as such, and would settle all quarrels with tiic battle-axe. The Cut ting affair is a rase in point. An editor, a disgrace to journalism, and a sad apology of American citizenship, publishes upon the soil of Mexico a libel against a citizen of that country, is arrested, recants, is par doned, immediately crosses tlie Rio Grande, and upon American soil publishes the same libel which he had been too cowardly to adhere to when arrested in Mexico. lie is again arrested and imprisoned by the Mexican authorities. What are the grounds for demanding tlie release of this man? That the offence was committed on the American side of tlie boundary line. Sup pose a little case. Suppose Mexico is on tlie other side of Beaverhead creek, and that a measly Mexican crosses to this town and fires his carbine at a Dillonite. Suppose tlie fellow is arrested, and on his promise not to commit the offence again, is par doned, and then returns to the other side and 5 standing on the river bank, shoots at the same Dillonite. Would our sheriff be justified in arresting him, and would our courts have the right to try and punisii the scoundrel ? Yes. Then let us render the same justice that we would ourselves prac tice. Mexico is a weak and feeble neigh bor of ours, her once pure Castilian blood corrupted, tlie energies of her people weak ened by lack of public education, and an enervating climate. We whipped her bad ly once. Wc can do it again. There, by the way, lies the secret of the sudden con version of our Englished Secretary of State into the prtriotic American zealous of his country's rights. But he can not cover up the traces of his unpatriotic policy in con nection with tlie Canadian fisheries by swaggering airs towards poor weak little Mexico. He has permitted our flag to be insulted with impunity, our fishermen he has left at the mercy of British officials— because he had to deal with a powerful and aggressive nation. But when a rascally editor sneaking behind the breastwork of American çitizenship, shoots his bullet at our little neighbor across the Rio Grande, tlie Secretary demands immediate repara, tion. Go to! PARTISAN POLITIC» IN THK WRONG PLACK. The Democratic Convention meets to day for the purpose of nominating county officers. Many of tlie delegates, we have every reason to believe, are fair-minded men, some, we have equal reason to think, are narrow partisans. It remains to be seen which element will influence the nom ihations—whether the convention will nominate men with a view to their fitness for office, or whether the action of the con convention will be guided by self-interest. We have nothing to say against party as a means for the dissemination of right prin ciples. The contention of parties in a re public like ours is necessary, and i6 wholesome in influencing public senti ment. But party can be carried too far, and into things with which it has nothing to do. There is often the shout, "Rally round the flag, boys!," when there is no flag to rally round or when the banner bears no motto of true principle. In a case of tills kind is a man bound to support a can didate simply because he calls himself a democrat or republican? Or should character be tlie touchstone by which to test the fitness of the candidate? Take the office of sherift for example. Is there any thing in tlie duties of that officer to require one to vote for the nominee on party grounds? Can tlie sherift' make a quicker arrest because he is a believer in the theory of free trade? Would the doctrine of pro tection to American industries enable him to serve a warrant more promptly? .In short is there anything that separates the two great parties that is involved in the duties of his office? No, there is none, and we challenge any partisan, and will give him room in these columns, to show' where Democracy or Republicanism touches the question of the Sheriffalty. Tlie qualifications for tills office spring from personal qualities: strength, quick ness of mind, bravery, honor, thorough loyalty to tlie law when public sentiment is temporarily against it. The question in tlie selection of a sheriff and men for other oflice where tlie claims of party can not rightfully enter should be, "Is he fit?" and not "Is he a partisan?" These reflections are not put forth as an advocacy of tlie claims of our present excellent sherift'. It would be idiocy for any one to trv to oust him from his office, possessing, as he does, those necessary qualifications in such high degree. We are simply stating a broad principle, that party can have no claim upon its members except where it is fighting for a principle. The Tribune intends to support, in its humble wav, competency, honesty, and fitness \\"e know that we do not wield a potent |>en. We know that our influence is not so a a great as tlie Salt Lake Tribune s. But by the grace of God we shall use what little influence we have for the good of the county, without regard to party. There is one position in which politics not only does not rightfully enter, but which it is a disgrace and a shame that it should enter. We speak of the position of Super intendent of Public Instruction. Let us say right here so as not to be misunder stood, that we are not an applicant for the position on tlie Democratic Ticket. Our name lias been spoken of in connection with the office, and a number of liberal minded Democrats have urged 11s to come out as a candidate, but we have never been £nd are uot nov: in any sc/isc xvhatcver an applicant for any position on tlie Democrat ic ticket. What we advocate is this : Take the county superintendenev out of politics altogether, by nominating some capable schoolmistress who lias had experience in our schools, and knows their needs, and let tlie Republican convention endorse the same candidate. Do not, if you have the interests of the schools at heart, nominate some one who has never been inside of a school-room except as a school-boy. Do not injure the school, by selecting some lawyer or doctor, or "do-nothing," sim ply because he has been loyal, even to trickery, to your party. If any doctor, or or lawyer or preacher or any one without educational qualifications undertakes to foist himself upon the public schools, we warn him that he will take such a "header" into the waters of oblivion that he will never rise to the surface again. We know that there are men in your party so blinded by party prejudice that they are willing, as one of them in Dillon declared, "to nom inate the most incompetent man in pref erence to any one who has the slightest taint of the Republican." If our teachers and superintendents were selected in ac cordance with the views expresed by that gentleman, we would soon have a gener ation of voters narrow-minded enough to vote for a "yellow-dog in preference to a republican.' But we hope that the people ol Beaverhead do not share in such an un patriotic sentiment. We shall, anyhow, use our best endeavors to fight so ignoble a policy and hence our first appeal to both tlie Democratic and Republican conven tions to select some melt qualified lady teacher. In doing so, we believe we voice the enlightened sentiment of mothers and fathers who care more for the well-being of our public schools than for the success of any political party. A FIELD FOR INVENTORS. Ihe C hronicle gives the following among statistics relative to losses by fire, and sug gests that the field for the invention of de vices for reducing the losses by fires orig inating from several common causes is a vast one. In the hope that some of our readers may make themselves millionaires by doing some profitable thinking, we will proceed to recite a few specifications. Much tlie larger part of the loss by fire to buildings results from external expo^tre Wanted, a method to prevent builuTngs from taking fire from the outside. Friction in machinery caused tlie de struction of $1000000 worth of property in the L nited States. Wanted, a method of lubrication which will do away with in fam mable oils. Matches carelessly handled burned over $500000 worth of property in the U. S. last year. Wanted, a genuine safety match. Defective flues burned about $3750000 worth of property. Wanted, a flue that can not be defectively constructed. Defective heating apparatus burned nearly $500000 worth of property. Want ed, heating apparatus that can not prove defective. Lightning burned $1,350,000 worth of property. Wanted a perfect lightning rod. Sparks from locomotives and other sources burned $3000000 worth of proper ty. Wanted a spark arrester, or furnace in which combustion is more nearly per fect. These ate some of the inventions for re ducing losses by fires. There are others needed in a different line, but more useful. I" or instance, electric wires have been a source of danger to tlie country. Wanted, wires of such perfect insulation that cabinet officers will be entirely cut oft' from tlie profits accruing from their use. Also wanted, a lubricator to oil tlie stiff joints of a certain cabinet officer to enable him to move (out) more quickly. Wanted, a fountain pen so constructed that the ink will not flow for editors of partisan papers, except when honest sentiments are written. W anted, a galvanic contrivance for par alyzing local politicians before Uiev become ambitious; also a drill, for boring servic able holes into the skulls of your Bourbons. Wanted, a patent mirror of such (lolished surface that the oleomargarine Congress may see itself as others see it. Huckle n's A rnica Suive. 1 he Best Salve in the world for Cuts, Bruises.
