The democratic rally held at tne court house Wednesday evening con sisted of a speech delivered by Robert B. Smith, former populist governor of Montana, in which he lamented the alleged shortcomings of the republican party. The speaker explained that he was not in good health, having left a hospital in Butte only a few days ago, and this possibly accounted in some measure for his pessimistic views. The audience was somewhat small, owing to a vaudeville attraction at the opera house, and there was an ev ident lack of interest and enthusiasm. The only applause during the speak er's remarks was when he departed from his harangue of fault finding and paid a tribute to the patriotism and ability of Abraham Lincoln, whom democratic orators maligned during his life time. Upon being introduced by Chas. E. Duer, chairman of the meeting, Gov ernor Smith said he does not feel as much interest in this national cam paign as in those of former years, as the presidential candidate and plat form of his party are not quite satis factory. He believes Bryan would make a better president than Parker, but as the latter is the candidate of their party, democrats should support him. The speaker charged that na tional expenditures under Roosevelt's administration have been most ex travagant, stating that in four years they have been $213,000,000 greater than under McKinley, and $883,000, 000 greater than during four years of Cleveland. He declared that national prosperity has been due to favorable seasons aud large crops, aud if the re publican party claims credit for these, it should be charged with the prevail ing drought in northern Montana. Ina brief discussion of state af fairs, the speaker declared that the democratic party has been in control iu Montana most of the time during the past forty years. He charged that the Riekards administration made ex penditures that largely exceeded its revenue, and that wlieu he, Robert B. Smith, became governor of Montana, he proceeded to llood the state treas ury with funds, paid oil' the state in debtedness, aud turned over a hand some cash balance to Governor Toole, his successor. The speaker omitted to explain that Governor Riekards was iu office during the Cleveland panic, when the national treasury had big deficits aud when the income of nearly every business man was less than Iiis expenses. In appropriating credit for himself in the matter of pay ing off the state indebtedness, Gov. Smith also neglected to remark that the people of Montana furnished most of the money by paying their taxes. MONTANA NEWS JiKIEFLF.TS.

Helena, N ov . 1.—John Allen, one of the oldest of the Montana pioneers, and who was one of a party who first discovered eold in Montana, is slow ly dying at St. John's hospital in this city.

Missoula, N ov . 1.—A good many of the merchants of this city have in their possession specimens of some of the cleverest counterfeit work ever seen here or elsewhere. During the past two or three months a good mauy of the bogus coins have drifted into the city, and City Detective Hogan has been busy in efforts to run down the party or parties responsible for their circulation, but without succès thus far. The coins are counterfeits of the silver dollars of the issues of 1883 and 1885, and they so closely re semble the genuine that almost anyone might be deceived. The coins have rims of pure silver, so that when drop ped on edge on a table or counter they have the true metallic ring. When dropped sidewise the thud of the spurious coin is made known.

Then there are perhaps 500 men who serve as either registration agents, clerks or election judges.

Cheyenne, Nov . 2.—A telephone message from Meeteetse states the posse that left there at midnight came upon the Cody bank robbers who yes terday killed Cashier Middaugh, in an attempt to rob the bank, at daylight in a lonely spot on Grey Bull river.
