The democratic candidates have not slept soundly for several nights. To-night, several of them, no doubt, will remain awake, praying for weak republican nom inations. They'll quake more perhaps, when they learn the nominations to-mor The Anaconda Review says: It is be coming fashionable in Montana thisffall for ladies to be placed in nomination for theof fice of county superintendent of public instruction and of course Deer Lodge Coun ty democrats are not behind the times." If the democratic convention of Beaverhead truly r-presents the democrats of this coun ty, they are out of fashion. But the Repub licans will bring it into vogue. The New York Sun says: In this coun try it is useless to fight silver, says that solid old Southern journal, the Atlanta Constitution, Our contemporary would also have been right if it had said that the war against silver originated and lias been maintained chiefly thiough misinforma tion, avarice, obstinacy, stupidity and hal lucination. When reduced to the simplest form of statement possible the anti-silver crusade rests either on ignorance or greed. The resolutions passed by the Missoula Republican convention, have the merit of meaning something. Here is one of them that wc would commend to those fellows, who would place their fellows in office competent or incompetent: "That we be lieve public office is a public trust, and we demand of our officers, and of the coun ty officers especially, a more rigid economy in public affairs, a strict compliance with the spirit as well as the letter of the law, and the same regard for the interests of the people which would be expected by and accorded to a private employer." It is worth one's time time to read the platform of the democratic conventions, if only to see how the planks contradict each other. How inconsistent, for instance, arc these two resolutions passed by the Ohio Democrats recently assembled at Toledo: "We cordially indorse the administration etc. "We denounce the attempt to change the measure of values, in the face of the world's vast debts, from gold and silver to silver alone, as an act of monstrous injus tice etc. President Cleveland has done many good things but his financial policy has been de structive to the interests of the West and the democrats know' it. THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES. The Republican primaries are held today. This journal hopes and believes that the primaries will make but few If any mistakes in their selection of delegates. It is the in tererest ot the party to secure honest and competent county-officers, and such can be secured only through intelligent and consci entious delegates. Let then the party be true to the principles of its great men, and to that progressive spirit of the day which de clares that it is a crime to put men into of fice solely far party fealty without regard to fitness. We trust that the voters of each precinct will turn out at masse and select ! men truly representative of the party. Per -1 mit no delegate to be elected who has ever j peer» untrue to republican principles,nomor- ! i al and political omnifont who lias ever be j trayed his party by a bargain witli the dem- 1 ocrats. The delegates must go to thejeou- ; vention untrammeled by the interests of 1 any leader and unpledged to any candidate. And let there be no ground of suspicion that any precinct was packed by the friends 2 1 2 2 of an aspirant, for the office-seeker is the very one whose seliishness should effectu ally debar him from any gifts at the hands of the people. The Republican precincts each sends fewer delegates than did the Democrats, and for this reason more com petent men ought to be secured. Where the field is so large, there can be no diffi culty in getting what the convention must and, wc think, will have: sensible, liberal minded men, whom no hope of favor can influence, no effort of power control, and whose nominations will be a credit to themselves and an honor to the country. THE t-'ltEE TRADE CIRCULAR. After the most exhaustive practical tests in hospitals and elsewhere, the gold medal ! and certificate of highest merit were awarded to St. Jacobs Oil, as a he best pain j curing remedy, at the Calcutta Interna ! tional Exhibition. The American Free Trade League is out with a long-winded circular. With the exception of its just scoring of the demo cratic party for posing as the party of free trade, and vet not having the courage of its convictions, it is a singular document "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing." These free-traders are most persistent in re fusing to respect in the slightest degree the results of experiment and experience. Though their gauzy balloon has been pricked time and again by the argument of incontrovertible facts, yet they arc ever prepared to repatch and reinflate. Though it has been shown that in 1S60, the total value of property in the United States was $14,000,000,000; that in twenty years un der protection there was an increase of $30,000,000,000, the total value being in 18S0, $44,000,000,000!—and though it has been pointed out to these theorizers that during the ten years.that free trade was on trial, and which, happily for the interests of Amçrica, terminated in 1S61, our im ports exceeded our exports by $40,367,974; and that under the operation of the ten years of protection, from the repeal of free trade by the Morrill tariff act in 1861, our exports, exceeded our imports by $it 3 ° 6 >S 43 ' 2 6 °— 1 hough this overwhelming proof of the benefits accruing from pro tection is producer! by Republican party, yet these imaginative free traders, their minds encased in theories so finely woven that no light from the outside is ever ad mitted, continue to cry that free trade "will insure the country full industrial employ ment and higli wages, abundant protection, and low cost!" Ifthereisone fact patent to the minds of the American people, it is that the tari IF act, instead of being repealed, should be made more stringent. Those very foreign nations which the "circular" says are so burdened with taxation from supporting great armies that they would not be able to compete with us, imported into these United States last year, in bar ley, clocks, coal, crockery ware, cottons, flax, glassware, leathers, liquors, silks, su gars, watches, woods and wools, $386,667, Sjo! That is to say they sold us almost $400,000,000 worth of their goods. And upon these $400,000,000, they were able to pay an average duty of 46 per cent! If they can compete with us to this extent when they have to pay a tax of almost 50 per cent., what would they do if they had to pay no tax at all? The "circular," in saying that foreign nations are burdened with supporting immense standing armies states the case of protection with fullest force. If all nations were free and en lightened like the United States, free trade might then be something more than a theory. But, unhappily, they are not free and enlightened. Their people are im poverished, and ruled by the iron law of might. Here the people are sovereign, and this means education of the masses. And education of the masses means fair wages for the laboring man. Whatever is good in the condition of American labor er», is due, in great measure, to the pro tective tax on imports, which enables him to properly lecd and clothe his children, and give then, an education befitting American free-mcn. The free trader may point scornfully to the frequent strikes of the laboring classes, but if he will take the trouble to inquire into those strikes, he will find that in almost every case thev have had their origin in the crowding out of American workmen by Foies, Bo hemians and other pauper laborers of Europe. We need then other protection. Put so heavy a tax on this rotten mass of ignorance and pauperism, weekly belched upon our shores by Europe, and make the tax on imports so heavy, that our free American workmen will not have to com pete witli the paupers of Europe, the rice eaters of India, the slaves of Egypt, and then strikes and business depressions, if not a thing of the past, will surely be less frequent and less violent. The total expenditure of the U. S. for August 1S86, are $34,195,336,39. For the same month in 18S5, $38,064,360.75. Democratic economy, don't you know. "SHYSTER" TACTICS. "Hon." Rob. B. Smith, U. S. Attorney under a President who believes that office is a public trust, and has instructed U. S. Attorneys not to take part in partisan pol itics, endeavors to break the force of what we have said about partisan politics, by a personal attack upon us in Wednes day's issue of the Examiner, lie pretends to consider a condemnation of the opin ions of one's political opponents, as a per sonal attack, and intimates that we were insincete in our reply to his first eflusion. To his silly talk, we can only reply that we have seen nothing either in the ability of the "Hon." R. B. Smith as a w riter or conti oversationalist to forbid our attacking him had we just cause. It is only from a decent self respect, that we do not wish to enter into a personal controversy with him. Though he may think his position as legal luminary and U. S. Attorney may entitle him to a large share of the coun try's attention, the Tribune 1* ;gs to differ from him upon this point as upon most others. As for ourselves, we reck no more of his vaporings than we would the yelp ing of a yellow dog. Few will believe that R. B. S. barks so savagely to vindi cate himself, but rather to draw attention from the question at issue. Lawyers of a certain stamp are, like foxes, proverbially fond of eluding pursuit by switching from the main track. But R. B. S. forgets that in dealing with the enlightened sentiment of Montana, he is not making a demagogic speech to a few whiskey-soaked old store "bums" ofa Kentucky village. Till he can raze the seal of truth from what we wrote, by proving that it is not a violation of the spirit of the school-law to select a superin tendent on party grounds, he will but of fend his lungs to rail so loudly. What he says regarding our abiltity as a teacher, we cordially endorse, and are only surprised that his wonderful acumen did not per ceive the fact when he wrote his first la bored conundrum. But why publish old news of that sort in our spicy «»temporary ? Every body in Dilion knows that we were about as complete a failure as a teacher as R. B. S. is as a U. S. Attorney under a civil service reform President. But will the "Hon." U. S. Attorney be kind enough to tell us what the educational qualifica tisns, or disqualifications of one who is not an applcant for the position, have todo with the question at issue, which is: Should party politics enter into the question of the selection of school superintendent* THE MISSOULA TICKET.
