Great Falls Tribune: In view of
the activity of the woman suffragists in
this state it is interesting to note the
great advance that women have made
in the eyes of the law during the last
50 years or so. These advances are
not indicative that there is any great
meed for woman suffrage so far as fair
■treatment for women is concerned.
It is less than half a century since
in the eyes of the law husband and
wife were one person and the hus
band was that person. At marriage
the woman entirely lost her legal ex
istence, and her property passed en
tirely into the husband's hands. In
that day a man got something when
he married for money, provided his
■wife had any. A woman could work
and earn, but not for herself. The
husband could collect her wages with
out the wife's consent. The husband's
right to chastise the wife, to a certain
extent, was even recognized.
Now all that is changed, and the
wife's legal condition is really better
than the husband's. Only the other
day a Massachusetts judge lined a
man $50 for opening of one his wife's
letters. A husband is bound to sup
port bis wife "in a manner befitting
her station and position in society,"
and, if the wife is so minded, he is not
the judge of what that is. If she is
not satisfied the courts will decide
what she should have. Should he re
fuse to supply the means he may be
thrown into jail. Hut if the wife has
the money the man can't force her to
give up anything. Even should the
courts attempt to make her do so pub
lic opinion would not allow it. The
wife in most states, may hold property
separately and dispose of it by will or
othewise. A husband, however, can
not dispose of his property without
the wife's consent. A widower's right
in the property of his deceased wife is
nothing like the wife's right to the es
tate of her deceased husband.
Plainly woman is on the high road
to absolute independence of man and
it is right that she should be. There
•was more danger of abuse of one by
the other under the old system than
there is under the present. Nor is this
fact a reason against woman suff rage,
but there is no need of woman having
the ballot to obtain fair treatment be
fore the law.

Lewistown Democrat: Like many
laws when they are originally placed
upon the statute l>«x>ks, the game law
of Montana is by no means as perfect
as it might be made, and there is a
strongly expressed sentiment that the
üiext legislature should add some rad
ical amendments thereto.
A law to be upheld by public opin
ion should be based absolutely upon
«equity, fairness and justice,, and must
be thoroughly divested of every feature

tending to partiality or discrimina
tion. This, it is alleged, is not the
status of the present game law, it be
ing urged that in it are embodied pro
visions which savor more or less of
class legislation. Some opponents of
the measure assert that it was largely
framed in the interest of organized
sportmen's clubs, affording the mem
bers thereof privileges which could not
be conveniently enjoyed by the masses
of the people. However this may be,
it is quite apparent that there are in
consistencies in the law which should
be corrected as speedily as circum
stances will permit.
An illustration of the injustice
worked by the game law was recently
afforded in Flathead county; over in
that section a man without means with
which to procure the necessaries of
life killed a deer with which to pro
vide meat for his destitute famil; ; as
soon as this reached the ears of an
over officious deputy game warden the
offender was arrested and put to ma
terial expense in the way of standing
trial; a fair minded justice, however,
at once discharged the accused man
from custody. Another was here in
Fergus county, wherein a man was
fined $25 for selling a deer hide which
he had innocently obtained posses

Miss Mary MacLane has nearly
fini sheil another book.
It may be a surprise to most people
to know that it is about herself.
Realizing that there are now t 3 - pe
setting machines and that there is no
danger of the cap-box being exhausted
Miss McLane in her forthcoming book
will not spare personal pronouns.
There seems to be a few more points
about herself that the expectant public
has not yet learned through the me
dium of "The Story of Mary Mac
Lane" and the new book will shed
light on these darkened spots.
Into the depths of those mysteries
about herself which are unknown to
the public the girl will delve, bring
them out and spread them upon the
pages of a book which regular stores
will sell for $1.50 anil department
stores for $1.15.
This book will be largely in the in
terest of critics on eastern newspapers.
They have about exhausted the first
book and the writer and are now tun -
ing on themselves; so much so that the
Butte genius, as it were, is getting
lost in the shuffle. The new book will
bring the calcium light again upon her.
It is saiil that in the new book Miss
MacLane will tell how she found the
devil. She says:
"I found the devil.
"He was sitting on a Large rock
overlooking the housetops of Butte.
"He did not see me coming.
"So I found him!
"I said to him: *1 am poor little
"He said: 'I am so sorry!'
"I do not know what he meant by
the remark. I do not care.
"I sat down by his side and held
fast, fast to his hand.
"It was hotter than my flush.
"I said: 'I have been looking for
you, Devil. I have been out in the
red, red sunset. I have been out in
the cold, colil dawning searching for

drew him close. I pressed my lips to
