Vernie ty. Beeman. j Entered at the post office in Forsyth, Montana, âs second class mail matter on March 21st, 1901. The Eagle Will Scream— M Forsyth, July 4, 1902. THK I.A W ASH WOTIICN. 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. lAJIK UVVS NF ICH K1CYIMOV 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 SUBSCRIPTION RATKS: One Year ................................. $2 50 5ix Months................................ 1 50 Four Months.............................. 1 0t> 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 sion of. DEVIL HAS COME. .Vliii-y II»« laine Hum t.onc to llim und lias ■•'oun<l Him to In- a Hot Personage. 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 Mary MacLane!' "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 you. ' "He said: 'I know it.', "There was sadness in his voice. "He said: 'What would you have me do?' "1 said: 'Smother, scorch, burn, blister me with love.' "He stared at me and said: 'Dope!' •:1 said: 'Damn!' "I threw my arms around him. I drew him close. I pressed my lips to his. "I knew I had found my Happiness. "I do not know what he had found, "Perhaps it was his Hell! "We sat together. The sun hid his face. "Who can blame the sun? "Into the west came the red of the sunset. My red sunset. ■ÎNtruy Nolice. Taken up by J. C.
