A VOiCE FROM BENTON
Populist Campaign Lies About
Judge Hunt.
The Silverite Tells What He Did as
Colleetor'of Customs When
He Was Not.
The esteemed Silveriteo, published
at Missoula as a populist paper, this
week prints a conulnuinication from
Fort Benton. and signed, "Populist,''
which is aimed at Jurdge W'im. Ii.
Hunt. republican candidate for the
supreme judgeship. The art icle is a
lie from start to tfinish, as the editor
of tile IREPIILICAN knOWS from )el'
sonal knowledge. as at the timle re
ferred to by "Populist," twelve years
ago, the present editor of the Rie
PUBLI;cAN was ia resident of Fort
Benton and associated with Ilon.
JTerry Collins, brother of lion. T. E.
Collins. the last democratic nominee
for g'overnor. The lirml of Collins &
Stevens were then running the Fort
Bien ton Iliver Press. which was after
ward formed into the iliver Press
Publishintug Co., of which Mir. Stev
ens was president ait the time lie sold
out in Oclt:ber, 1t83. "lPopulist,"'
in the Silverite, says that .Judge
Ilunt was collector of customs at.
Fort ioentoni in 1882. It is lie. Thos.
A. Cummings. the present secretary
of the repubtlllican state committee,
was collector of customs then anrid ie
had no coiiiiection with either TJudge
liHunt or .1udtge Iluck. The Silverite
says that ,tldg'e ]uliint owned a little
building about. 15x21 feet and rented
it to the government at $25 per
month for the collector's otlicie when
$15) would be a geood rental, under
the firn name of C. L. Spencer & Co.
That is lie No. 2. Messrs. lount &
lack did own a brick tbuildiug albout
I5x;30, and occupied it as a law oltlce,
and "Fopulist' could l 1ot have ronted
it, for a private purpose in those days,
when Fort lienton was boomning, for
$25 per month. The River Press
rented ice lower lowe oor of the Odd
Fellows' building", about 25x50, and
it was not even Iathed inside. and
paid $50 per 1mnth forl it.
Lie No. 3 is about the firm of C. L.
Spencer & Co. '1~ie only tirm of 0.
L. Spencer & Co. inl Fort Ienltori was
the irmn name that was put up on
the heand of the editorial columns of
the Benton RIecord, at the time the
liiver Press was started by the firm
of Williains, Wright & Stevens on
Cctober 27, 1880. The Ileciord was
owned by .olhnny Ilealy, then sherilfI
of C'hoteau county, a111d V. 11. 1ltcke
(uo relation to Jud:Ce liurace I;uck,
whichl latter gentlema n was then and
is now 5i deillocirat), andll(l \he the
I.iver Press was started MIealy &
huck hired C. L. Splencer, lV. II.
hlunt and liorace luck Ito edit the
Iecord and by their comnbined talent
drive out the three poor pr inters who
were attempt ing to goet a start ill life
by estaiblishing' the River Press, and
they put the name of C. L. Spencer
& Co. at the head of the paler, and
it was wvitli great feelinls oif pioesure
that XWilliams,. IWrilghi & Stevens
downed the comlbihnation of talent
and C. L. Spencer & Co. iuit editing
the :Record in about six months, aniid
"they've never done anyithing since."
The Silverite can sulstantiate this
statement by writing to IMr. Th(s.
Wright, one of the starters of the
River f'reu.s, and now til(e 1able Great
Falls coirrlesponilldeni t of tie Anacomnda

GOING TO POSSESS Tll; I.AND.
A London Trade Ppecr Says tie lritislh
ers Will Take Our llarket.
We would specially urge our read
ers who lay themselves out l' fr a for
eign trade to turn their attention to
the new tariff bill just passed by the
United States, which has already
become operative. 'theo fact that
3cKinileisnm has iit. llritish maniu
factuters aild exporters very hard
indeed, and, ill somlc instances,
where the United States has been
tlheir only mnarket, has virtually
ruined them, cannot be deniedd but
this is no reason why manllfacture's,
who are st ill prepared to do a colisid
erable business with the States
should allow cold water to be thrown
upon theii ah l iiipations of .the flu
ture. it hlos leomne the fashion of
late for a certain class of critics to
deride A\meriican business. aind all
tihings Amieritcan, presumably he
cause we have been inflicted for a
time with MclKinleyismn. Now Me
Kinleyisim has completed its reign of
tinkering, at least for the presentl,
there is a; opportliunityv once mllore to
go in and passess the land. i)isap
peointmentl exists, thlere is nrio doubt,
that the intentions of the original
prornotors of the Wilson bill should
Iaive leen so rithlesslv set onil one
side. but Englishmen trading with
the Stal.es will find it a prolitless task
to discuss the political mlorality (if
American legislators. Otn the prin
ciple, therefore, that half a loaf is
better than none, we would advise
thtaei to examine the tariff for them
selves, aid see lthat they useo every
opplorl unity in their power to secure
the business which unldoulbtedly
awaits theim in certain branches of
the trade. New nmiarkets are not
quite so easily discovered as they
were diluing the ea:sygoing days of
our fathers, and we ('iiiuot afford to(
be so independent or impatient as
they were accustomed t.o lie when u(b
stea le's were thrown acrioss their path.
It should be borne in mind that,
after ill, the new tariff is somnewhat
ricitirkiilu for such a full-bloodted
plrotectionist country as America.
It is noteworthy that the WVilsoi tariff'
shows a reduction all arould.
Few 'gNuulish firms will beluclit
mlore from hle new tariff than those
enaged inL the Shellield trades muld

Seth Hawks Was So .Mean a Georgia Jury
llung lim for .Manslaughter.
'I was onice detained for two weeks
in .middle Georgia," said a well-known
Chric'ago drumtlnmer, "'and while there
witnessrid an extraordinary trial. O,ld
Set Ih Hawks, a character of the vi'l
lage was one of the most ornery
cusses that ever lived. Nobody ever
saw himil work, and it was more than
suspected that most of his harvesting
was ditne in other people's fields,
while they slept. Still, the was too
foxy to get caught. . Most of his time
was spent in saloons, and he had a
knack of getting drinks without pay
ing for them. lie was a tall, lanky
fellow, without a particle of spirit,as
his neighbors supplosed, for ihe was
indifferent to kicks, and nothing
seemed to trouble himi except a short
aige of whisky.
"Old Seth had a daughter, and a
very handsomne girl slre was, but she
was densely irgcnorant, and fully as
lazy and good for nothing as her
father. Hill Stukes a young man of
Ii(he same stripe as iHawks, ran away
with the girl and neglected to marnry
her. Seth insisterd that lie repair
this omission, and upon the positive.
refusafl of lill to do so, borrowed a:
shotgun aind kilhled him outrigiht. -
