PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY BY THE HERALD PUBIUSHING COMPANY G. E. SHAWLER - - BusinessMgr. Entered as second-class matter August 17, 1911, at the postoffice at Libby, Mon tana, under the Act of March 3, 1879. THURSDAY, NOV. 2, 191T. UNITY. Every community is what the people who live in them make of them. A community is merely the composite of the individuals of the community. The city that makes the greatest progress is the one where the people are in closest unity in their efforts for advance ment. The agency through which the people must work out their destiny is a strong commercial body in the community. Everyone must be willing to work together. The interest of all is the first requisite to the success of any community. Development and progress of communities cannot be left to chance. Let all remember that the ideas of the individual receive but little attention, but the com bined sentiment of many individu als is irresistible. Dr. Cook came back all right when he landed in Copenhagen a few days ago, but his visit was brief, as he didn't like the quality of hen fr'tlit served him. Two Kinds of Millionaires. Bryan recently got off a fine thing of large significance, in an address upon millionaires, when he said : "A great many peopfe in hiftory have earned five hundred millions, but they have been so busy earn ing it, that they have had no time to "ollect it; and those who have collected it, have been so busy that they have had no time to earn it." He named but two who have earned five hundred millions, and did not collect it, so busy were they, though he could have named others-Lincoln and Jefferson. He did not cite the men who have collected many millions and not earned it. There are a number such, well known of men, and it was scarcely necessary. Every body knows, who knows anything about business, big or little, that when Carnegie found his holdings were needed to form the big steel combine and raised his price from one hundred and sixty millions to three hundred and twenty millions, he did not earn "the raise." And there are many others. Yes the country is full of men who have collected millions and were too busy to earn it. The government has brought suit for dissolution of the steel trust. How long it will take to determine if this is a "reasonable" trust or an Libby Steam Laundry W. B. LIBBY, Gen. Mgr. Good, careful work and attentive service. All outside orders promptly filled.

PRESCRIPTIONS CAREFULLY COMPOUNDED 4. "unreasonable" trust, time alone can tell. It required four and a half years to secure a judgment against the Standard Oil company. The steel corporation is a combina tion of more than 0oo conmanies, is a billion and a half concern in stocks and bonds and does treble the business of the Standard Oil and Tobacco companies combined. Moreover, Judge Gary, head of the steel combine, announces that the suit/will be contested to the last. Hiram Johnson Explains. Hiram Johnson, the progres.ive republican governor of California, explains that the reason he did not attend the Taft banquet in San Francisco was that he feared the president would attack the recall of the judiciary which the, voters of the state had just adopted by such an overwhelming majority, and if such an attack were made he could not sit silently by but would be bound to arise and champion the will of the people,which would cre ate "a scene." But Taft was as silent as a clam on the subject and there was no chance for "a scene" if the governor had been there. However, since returning east, the president has again been denounc ing the recall of the judiciary. At Chicago last Saturday, before the bar association, he defended his ac tion in vetoing the Arizona state hood bill and said he wrote the veto out of his heart and was proud and glad of it. His view may be summarized in the following sen tence in his address: "What de fects there are are due not to the weakness of the judges, but to the weakness of the people." If he had said that in California, there would have been some fireworks. Taft may not be a politician, but ,e knows where to deliver his "keynotes." The property valuation of Mon tana for 191I amounts to $331,670, 418, a gain of twenty-two million dollars since last year. Like -Banquo's Ghost, The republicans of Illinois were thrown in a panic when the an nouncement was made that Senaror Lorimer had secured Congressman Lowden's proxy as national com mitteeman for Illinois, to attend the meeting of the committee in Washington in December, which will issue the call for the national convention. Lorimer says he want ed the proxy so as to unite the conflicting elements of the party into a harmonious whole and help guide it in the next campaign, and so forth and so on. The Illinois leaders, however, held a conference and decided that Iorimer's activity would he a black eye to the party, the upshot being that the commit teenmn withdrew his proxy and will attend in person. The party leaders probably are congratulat ing each other that they escaped having one "put over" on them. If Lorimer is not fit to represent the party at a committee meeting in Washington, is he fit to repre sent the people of the United States in the senate at Washington? Big Musical Comedy Coming No more pleasing announcement could be made in a theatrical sense than that Geo. M. Cohan's New York musical comedy success, "45 Minutes from Broadway," will visit the opera house Tuesday, Nov. 7. It is a girly show, full of good comedy and catchy music, and af fords an evening enteet'iinment that no theatre goer should miss.

The leading comedy character is "Kid Burns," an ex-pugilist, who comes out to New Rochelle to act as secretary to hiis old friend, Tom Bennett.
