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
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 Ire 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 :
1— 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.
2— In the absence of a Delegate and his
Alternate a majority of the Delegation
from that County, shall cast the vote of

Delegate and his Alternate Delegate are
absent there shall be no vote cast in their

B. F. White, Chairman.
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
"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
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
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.
"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*
