FRIDAY. FEBRUARY t. If 17.
Several times a day during this w eek
press bulletins announce the destruc
tion of a ship by Germany's submarine
process. It was mentioned in the Post
last evening, under Washington dat«,
that Berlin's undertaking is to destroy
shipping at the rate of a million tons
a month and that the average for
February, thus far, would hardly be
leas than that total. That is going
it with a vengeance—that the subma
rines can keep up the pace may be
doubted; a iress dispatch yesterday
under Berlin date says that a state
merit recently issued In that city rec
ognizes the fact that the British will
very soon take measure that may keep
a lane open for ships headed for Brit
ish ports. About a week ago an an
nouncement made officially In Berlin
set up the claim that the central
powers have destroyed three million
British tons, that being, it is claimed,
about 15 per cent of the British total
fit the time when the war began. The
entente side could stand this, as a
war risk, saying nothing of the new
tonnage acquired since hostilities be
gan. But the loss incurred during the
present month rolls up rapidly.
NORMAL SCHOOL BILLS
One day early in the session a mem
ber of the Fifteenth legislative assem
bly gave notice of a bill to create a
•econd state normal school and locate
it in his home town. If imitation Is
flatten', then this member must lx*
nearly ti kled to death. He failed to
copyright his idea and forthwith it was
Adopted by a number of enterprising
members who desired to do something
for their constituencies. If the legis
lature created a state normal school at
•very town specially mentioned In a
bill for that purpose, Introduced at the
present session, Montana would at once
achieve fame as the teaching center
•f the universe. Jt will not come to
that. Indeed, even the first bills to
create new state normal schools have
not made much progrès». The chances
Are that al! of them will die a linger
ing but painless death in committees.
Normal colleges have t>een bones of
contention In a score of states. Ex
amples of this could be found in
Idaho, in Washington, Oregon and Cali
fornia and in several Middle-West
»täte». At the last general election
one of the bills submitted to the peo
ple of Oregon involved a change in the
location of the state normal,
caused about as much bitterness of
feeling as any issue in the Web foot
•täte. In Idaho a state normal school
located in the panhandle section has
been the object of attack by members
from the southern section. Washing
ton has a normal school issue. In
California the attempt to move a state
normal from one part of San Francisco
to the California building on the
ground» of the Panama-Pacific' ex
position has given rise to a controversy
that only the legislature can straighten
In this state, happily, thers I» no
disposition on the part of anyone to
criticise or attack the state normal
college at Dillon. On all sides that
Institution is given credit for excellent
work. In support of the bills creating
% second normal college nothing has
mm said reflecting upon the Dillon
school further than to call attention to
a fact that is obvious—that it If
j long gray to Dillon from acme parts of
Montana. Por that matter, it Is a
long way to the state university from
some parts of the territory' from which
K naturally expects to draw patronage,
The university chancellor has acknowl
edged this by giving his support to a
bill that is intended to provide for the
payipent of the railroad fares of stu
dents attending the Missoula institu
U view of the fact that the state :»•
extremely short of funds and expects
to be shorter, it isn't probable that an
other normal college will be created at
the present session of the legislature
The legislature is going to find it dlf
TcoU enough to provide funds for the
stAte s existing institutions of higher;
education without creating new
leges -that is our guess about it. Be
sides, if the time is at band when!

THEIR RIGHT NAMES
By all means, let there be favorable
a' tion at Helena, this session, on the
measure that will permit, among other
things well worth while, a revision of
names for Powell county and Deer
Lodge. For one thing, the present ar
rangement It made awkward because
the prosperous city of Deer Lodge is
a county seat but It Is not in Deer
LexL'e county. But there are more
appealing reasons for the change.
When Montana tecame a state Deer
Lodge was in area one of the big
counties. Very soon thereafter Gran
ite county was carved out, with Phll
ipsburg, then a flourishing mining cen
ter, as its seat. Years later, by com
mon consent, there was another di
vision and, under an arrangement
which at the time seemed best, Ana
conda became the county seat for Deer
Lodge, while the city of Deer Lodge
became the center of a county which
took the came Powell long ago given
to a neighboring peak.
Marcus Daly was living at the time
when the division Ju»t referred to was
accomplished. Naturally, his towns
men regarded with favor the sugges
tion that the new county be named in
his honor. But, as we have said, it
was deemed expedient at the time 4 o
j adopt another course. There ought
to have been departure from It years
ago, and it Is to be hoped that action
will be taken by the legislature now.
with a change of county names in
Of course, the citizens of Anaconda
and of the region roundabout will be
of one heart and one mind when it
comes to the naming of their ballwlck.
We may know in advance that they
will want to commemorate Mr. Daly's
name, and that change will be espe
cially gratifying to older Anacondans
who hold the foundsr of their city in
to ; affectionate remembrance. H can be
a! said in an instance of this kind that
of j there's much in a name. Indeed, the
a ■ state will recognize the fitness of this
christening, and the selection will cer
