Official Paper of Silver Bow County.
Richard Parks Bland died at Lebanon,
Misscmvl, at 4:50 this mtrnlng. Hfa death
rem n cs from public life a man conspicu
ous in the political affairs of the country.,
and one upon whom the public looked j
w.th confidence and respect. Perhaps no
man in the United States was entitled to ,
greater credit from the advocates of bi
metallism than Mr. Bland. He was one
of the earliest and most persistent cham
pions of the white metal within the ranks
of the democratic party, and was the log
ical nominee of that political organization
for the presidency, when it finally de
cided tc make free coinage its paramount
issue in 1896. j
Tliere were few who questioned the pro- j
priety of his nomination, and fewer still j
perhaps who doubted that lie would be !
given that honor. He had worked for 1
silver in season and out of season, and !
was by all odds its most noted advocate !
in the ranks of the democracy. But while I
an earnest worker for the cause of bimet- !
allism. and a man of undoubted courage !
and force of character, he lacked the j
forensic ability that made Mr. Bryan the j
hero of the silver forces in the democratic j
national convention at Chicago.
To be displaced by a comparatively new I
man was undoubtedly a hard blow to the!
sensitive old veteran of the silver cause, !
but he accepted the situation philosophi- i
cally and gave Air. Bryan his loyal sup-!
poit. AYith the birth of a new star in the
democratic firmament, however, the influ
cnee of Air. Bland within party lines l>e-j
gan to wane. Though his final term in ;
congress did not end until last March, he j
has had little to do with shaping demo-j
eratie affairs since he was turned down ;
by the national convention in 1896. His j
past career of usefulness and fidelity to
bimeta.lk- principles, when its friends '

cause that led the democracy to accept!
it as an issue in 1856, and make Air. Bryan
its nominee, seems to have been lost sight
of during the past two years by the !
democratic press. He was seldom quoted
and his opinions were accorded but lit
tle weight in party councils, since the
leaders of that organization made up
their minds to relegate the issue of free
coinage to the rear as
Had Air. Bland retained the political
prestige he enjoyed prior to the Chicago
contention, it would be safe to say* that
no conference of the democratic leaders \
would have decided to place silver in tire i
background to make room for anti
trusts, anti-imperialism, or anti-any
thing else which the events of the hour
might suggest. But Mr. Bland lived to
see his efforts for silver go unrewarded by
his party, and, worse yet for the proud
ve( j
spirit of the veteran statesman, he 1

in an able ed.to^Ton the question of '
slavery, the Helena Independent says
. Slavery in the United States was aboi- i
ished by the emancipation proclamation 1
35 years ago, and the bare thought that
it would ever again find protection under
the starry banner has never be-en ml- j
mlttexl as a possibility. Yet today v r
tual slavery exists in Hawaii and actual
»(lavery exists in some of the Philippine
Perhaps ft has never occurred to the j
IndeptMidcnk that iho> reason
•lavery exists In the Philippine islands is
because its friend Aguinaldo still stands
between American ownership and Anio'ri
can sovereignty. Just as soon as the na
tional administration gets the anti-im
perialists in that quarter of the globe suf- !
ficiemly subdued to permit the introduc- |
tion of a little United States civilization,
slavery will disappear from the Philip
pines. Until this cruel war is over, and
Aguinaldo, old boy. Is classified with the J
has-beenis. it is hardly fair to charge the
lavery in the Philippines
to Uncle Sam.
Actual slavery in Hawaii has been dis
placed by what the Independent calls
virtual slavery, that is. the contract sys
tem, This evil, as th
Independent ought
to know, is being suppressed since annex- l
at ion. just as the blot of slavery will be
eliminated from the Philippines as soon
as American authority can be applied to
the political affairs of our new posses
Being opposed to die horrors of slavery,
and knowing that such horrors are com
mon to the Philippine islands, it is pass
j ing strange that our democratic brethren
; so bitterly object to American occupancy.
j n ,- 9 very edifying to see the Independent 1
| shivering over the awful thousht ,h.t|tJ.

over the awful thought that
in the Philippines, when it is doing all
within its power to have that "starry ;,
banner" pulled down and the country i
turned over to the slave owners. !
The democrats of the Keystone state
met in convention yesterday and decid
ed to make the campaign oil local issues.
The Associated Press report of the pro
ceedings says: "A motion to amend by .

Dut "'hile the refusal to give a
straight-out endorsement of the Chicago
platform was based on the proposition to
make the fight cn local issues, it is no
ticeable that the platform covers the
ai-ti-trust question and other matters of
nation! concern. The convention had a
great deal to say about the Spanish
American war, the chairman declaring
that the freedom of Cuba was due alone
to the "untiring effort

of the democratic '

favor of the free coinage of silver and !
gold at a ratio of 1C to 1, by the independ
lent action of the American republic. |
Several editorials from the Anaconda Jly
Standard were incorporated in the plat
form as adopted, with the name of M. S.
Quay substituted for that of \V. A. ;
Clark. By having the Pennsylvania
platform mortised it can be used by tlie|P°
next democratic state convention in Alon- i
tana, bv simnlv removing Ouav's namp
tana, by simply removing Quay's name
and inserting that of W. A. Clark. The
fact that the ratio of 16 to 1 is left out will
ileal the Anaconda Standard to accept \
such a platform without kicking. j
The most significant feature of the |
platform adopted yesterday is the boom- '
'ing of Schley. It classifies him with An- '
drew Jackson and Thomas
thus indicating a purpose to place him on
the ticket with Bryan in 1900. Schley's re
cent trip through the west is given a po
litical coloring by the action of the Penn
sylvanians, and the c-hanecs are the

Under a S lo °nW> mysterious, "deeply
significant" head the Anaconda Standard
this morning juggles with the news from
the Philippines >'ke a magician pouring 1
[different kinds of wine from the same |
demijohn. First, it recites that informa- j
tion was received to the effect that Gen- !
,erai Otis needs no more troops; second,
that tho Twenty-fourth and Twenty-fifth
regiments of regulars have been ordered
to assemble at San Francisco for duty in
regiments of regulars have been ordered
j to assemble at San Francisco for duty in
the Philippines if needed; and, third,
that a great battle was recently fought
near Alanila, in which the natives showed
treat persistency though thoroughly
routed by tho American troops.
From these statements
part of the
national administration that makes
Aaron, competing with the priests of
Egypt, shrink into comparative insignifi
cance in the field of magic. Yet, strange

'south of Manila, the Standard maintains
; that the forces of its distinguished friend, I
1 Aguinaldo show no signs of demoraliza- i
,h.t|tJ. No doubt the rebel, orjaultted lor j
a final grand stand at that point, and put j
up a st ,- 0 ng defense, only to be thorough- I
;, y L oute d as uusual by the American j
i forces. The battle proves nothing fur- j
! thel- than that General Otis and hi« men
J mu man that Genetal Otis and his men
! are able to cope with the situation. The
report of a hard fought battle, after such !
a long series of running fights, is seized
upon by the democratic press with the
ianie avidity that was displayed thirty- ;
five years ago when every aggressive
movement on the part of the confederacy
was heralded as a rebuke to the admin
istration of Abraham Lincoln.
After distorting the significance of the
news relating to the war in the Philip
pines, the Standard refers to the specu
lative statement that it would be imprac
ticable to speedily reinforce General Otis
with 35,000 men, on account of lack of
transportation, and the time it would re
quite to properly drill them for effective
service, and reads the administration the
following lesson:
This is a lame excuse. If the work of

in the performance of his duty on'account
of the opposition of the Anaconda Stand
ai 'd to the proposition to increase the
'efficiency of the army. Few journals op
aed the sending of troops to the Fili
P'b° war in the first place with greater
'vigpr than the- Standard, and none more
persistently demanded the- speedy return
of lhe volunteers without waiting for the
\ conclusion of the war. Now that gifted
j shuttle-cock on the ridge-pole of the
| democratic barn wants to know why tho
' adni * n ' s tration did not send 35,000 men to
lh(t front at the out-set! The Wizard of

After enlarging upon the propriety of
free speech concerning the war in the
! Philippines, the democratic press has
! reacliud a point where it insists that tin*
; line should be drawn. The Helena Inde
Pendent says
The propriety of discussing democratic
candidates and platform for 1900 is con
fined to tihnse who supported the demo
cratic candidates and platform in 1896,
or who inteind to support the candidates
and platform next election.
I That settles it. Those who did not sup

I keep hands off. A tiling that cannot be
done with propriety should not be done at
jail by self-respecting citizens, and as the
I discussion of prospective democratic can
! diclatew and prospective democratic plla-t
j forma ia confined to the truly faithful,
j persons of republican tendencies must
hereafter keep still.
The Great Fails Tribune devotes a col
thejumn to the defense of Aguinaldo. The
leading democratic organs are now all
in line for the groat barbarian who is
killing off the Montana volunteers when
under the flag of truce.
He (a.s they are seated in a quiet nook
near the links)—"Are you quite sure we
never met before this season?"
She—"Yes; quite positive."
"And you haven't a sister?"
"No; why do you a.=k?"
"Well, I'm positive I've hugged that
shirt waist before somewhere."—Yonkers
Washington Star: "I thought," said
the disappointed friend, "you told me this
election was going to be a walkover."
"Well," answeroel the former candidate,
"it was. I was the doorstep."

Green did not want any one living in Mr. ;

about looking, for they asked Mr. Bor- i
de,aux to build the fence. Mr. Bordeaux,

The marriage of Arthur P. Heinze
Aliss Ruth M. Noyes was solemnized in
St. John's Episcopal church at 8 o'clock
last evening and was without doubt one
of the most, if not the most, brilliant af
fair of its class that has ever taken place
in the city. The ceremony was performed :
by Rev. S. C. Blaekiston, assisted by !
Bishop L. R. Brewer of the Montana dio
cese, and was witnessed by as many
people as could find space within the walls
of the cosey church. The bride, elegantly
costumed, was attended by Aliss Alae
Word and Aliss Broadwater of Helena.
Aliss Dorothy Smith of Seattle, Miss
Louise Lacy of New York and Miss Hat
tie Young and Miss Alae Pfouts of this

ers were Otto C. Heinze, John MacGinnis,
Charles D. French, Daniel Raymond, Dr.
W. L. Reniek and E. L. Blossom. Mrs. W.
Ale-C White was the dame of honor.
The interior of the church was hand
somely decorated for the occasion, natural
flowers being profusely strewn about the
chancel in particular.
To the strains of the Mendelssohn wed
ding march t'he bride, leaning on the arm
of her father. John Noyes, with Mis.
Noyes and Airs. Heinze following, were
conducted to the altar by the ushers. The
party was received there by the groom
and his best man. Bishop Brewer an
nounced the affair and Rev. Blaekiston
then performed the ceremony and the
benediction. After the nuptial knot had
been tied the party proceeded to the resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. John Noyes where
a reception which lasted until after mid«
night was held in honor of the event. At
11 o'clock the bride and groom left for the
east over the Northern Pacific. They ex
pect to spend a few days in New York and
then go to Europe. On their return they
will make their home at 220 Aladison av
