MONTANA'S GOOD NAME.
. . .,
Rising above all questions of a national ;
Montana to protect the good name of
•the state. Little benefit can be reaped ;
th
j
j
from any national policy that might
seem to favor our local interests, unless i
we are prepared to make this an inviting ;
locality for the home-seeker and
home-builder. This state cannot become
great and powerful and influential on
foreign capital alone. The development
of its resources with money imported
from abroad will not alone build up all
nein aui'uau win uui aiune uuuu u,, cm;
those magnificent forces of citizenship
that stand for power in the life work of !
a progressive community.
progressive community
Montana must have men—sun-crowned
men—men of loyalty, of energy, of per
sonal worth and character—men whose
individuality stands for progress and
whose future will be identified with the
growth and prosperity of the state. Mon
tana has many such men, but more are
needed. To add such men to the popula
tion of this commonwealth, the voters of
this state must make it their first duty
to purge it of political dishonor and pro- I
tect its reputation from the vicious
agencies that have done so much in the
past to impair its reputation and be
smirch its good name.
Exemplifying the ancient fable of the
pot and the kettle, which told the truth
when they called each other black, the
two wings of the democratic party in
this state have by mutual charges and
— ,
counter-charges of political corruption i
„ „ r ,
blackened the name of Montana abroad. 1
... ,
until many desirable home-seekers are I
. , , , , . . I
deterred from taking up their permanent '
.... ,, ,
abode in a self-advertised "rotten
,
borough of mercenary and dishonest'
lawmakers. It cannot be denied that !
,, „ „ „ . , :
Montana has suffered irreparably as the
result of democratic ascendancy in this
state.
Some years ago it was understood that
both wings of that party contributed!
liberally to the legislative scandals of the',
day, and a great deal of prejudice against !
this state was created in prominent
circles in the east, which took on the
form of political and financial opposition
to our industrial interests. Had this fact
j
i
been fully appreciated by the voters of
Montana, the democracy would not have
been permitted to finally secure control
of the legislative and administrative
branches of the slate government, not
withstanding the special pleas of friend
ship for silver fraudulently put forth by
that political organization.
With greater power to inflict injury!
upon the state that power was exercised,
and the spectacle which the sixth legis
lative assembly presented to the world
last winter will never fade from the
memory of man. Elected chiefly through
bribery and coercion and fraud, it was
true to the hereditary instincts of its
birth and its record was «me long unin
terrupted scandal, in every nook and
corner of this great republic* the affairs
of Montana were discussed with derision
and scorn. Men who had criticised
Cleveland severely for presuming to re
fer to any sovereign state as a "rotten
borough" applauded th'- sagacity and
foresight of the sage of Buzzard's bay.
This state suffered a loss of respect
and confidence that can only lie regained
by punishing those guilty of making its
disgrace a possibility, and placing in con
trol of its public affairs men who are not
wedded to democracy and its methods.
To accomplish this end is a higher duty
resting upon the loyal citizens of this
state than fidelity to any qu-stion of
national concern, for it involves the wel
fare and prosperity of tin* commonwealth
and is of fust importance to its future
growth.
If outlawry continues to increase in
Cuba it will soon b»j as inten sting down
there as it is in the French chamber of
deputies.
A banana trust has been organized.
Is this one of Ute fruits of tlie St. Louis

WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN.
Every cordial grasp of the hand, every
courteous exchange of compliments,
every genial smile of reconciliation, that
betokens the growth of greater fellow -
ship between the north and the south
.
will be hailed with approval and joy by
every loyal citizen of the republic. The
prejudices of the war, incident to the
heartaches which time alone could;
assauge, have been crumbling in an at-!
mosphere of mutual Interests and com-j
mon purposes. The American character
is too broad, and the aims of our people'
too
high, to forever cherish the hatreds j
; and nurse the sorrows of the civil war.,
j But while the north has forgotten the j
| bitterness of that awful struggle for ;
j human liberty, and has buried in the j
sepulchre of the past the prejudices en
gendered by the lost cause, it can never
erase from the heart of loyalty the
memory of those who planned the de
struction of the nation while under the
protecting care of its flag. The southern
soldier was a hero in his own l ight. He j
fought for a cause he believed to be just. J
He met his northern brother in deadly ;
'! combat upon the open field. There was J
I an element of chivalry in his brave de- j
! fense of a monumental mistake. j

THE COEUR D'ALENE TROUBLE.
When the democratic governor of
I
Idaho called upon the federal govern
. , . , .
tuent to assist him in preserving order in
i
the Coeur d Alenes, the war department
I
promptly complied with the law govern-I
, . . , , „ ,
i ing such cases and placed General
J Merriam and his troops at the service |
; of the state executive. By state author- (
ity martial law was proclaimed in Sho-j
shone county and lines of procedure j
laid down for the commander of the
federal forces to follow, among other
i ules and regulations being the guber
j natorial decree prohibiting members of
the Miners' union from working in/ the
j mines of that district. In referring to
; the matter the secretary of war says in
j part:
j General Merriam was placed in the hands
J of the Idaho executive to perform What
; ever duties might be required of him in
J preserving the peace and dignity of the
j state. Time must determine to \ihat
j extreme Governor Steunenberg was jus

Getieal Merriam was ordered to Coeur
d'Alene on request of the governor of the
state of Idaho to preserve peace and to
protect life and property. He had no
other instructions except as above given,
and these, of course, it has been neces
sary to carry out.
It is clear from the foregoing that

unquestionably the duty of the governor, i

: the men who engaged in the crimes of

j Sullivan mine. Law and order must be j

THE EDMONTON TRAIL.
I When the Klondike excitement was at
' its height, and Seattle was reaping a
harvest from an endless chain of tender
! feet, the Edmonton overland route to j
-
Dawson City was advertised to the world
ns offering superior advantages to those
who wished to make a safe, quick and
1 economical trip to the new El Dorado.
I It is unfortunately true that a number
j of Montanians interested themselves in
! the advocacy of the new route, thinking
that special advantages would accrue to
this state in the matter of furnishing
supplies.
A great many daring adventurers
availed themselves of the overland route,
rather than face the outfitting merchants
of the Puget Sound city and take pass
age in rotten hulks to the inhospitable
harbor of Juneau. But those who start
ed for Dawson by the Edmonton route
lived to rc-great it, even if they did ,«ot
live to reach the land of gold. Inform« -
tion is now being received concerning
overland excursionists that reads like the
trials and tribulations of the old time
pioneers in the trackless forests of the
early American days.
It. seems that a portion of the route
lies through a heavily wooded chain of
, swamps never before visited by man.
! Entangled in these meshes of nature
! travelers on route to Dawson have suffer
! ed the tortures or the damned, losing
j their property, their provisions, their
clothing, their healtii and in many cases
their lives in the dismal woodlands of
j northern Canada. When aii the '-eliablo
\ reports from that region are formulated
into history the overland trail will fur
li.sh a chapter of horrors never before
•quailed in the mad search for gold.
