PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY BY THE HERALD PUBLISHING COMPANY Entered as second-class matter August 17, 1911, at the postofflce at Libby, Mon tana, under the Act of March 3, 1879.

Guess Again The Kalispell Times suggests that the people of this judicial dis trict owe the office of district judge to Charley Foote because he was defeated for the office four years ago. The Times has another guess coming. The people of Lin coin and Flathead counties oa e Mr. Foote nothing and are ready to pay the debt. Charley Foote is a good lawyer and a good citizen. He has reached an enviable emin ence in his profession and in view of the fact that he represents near i ly every important corporation op erating in this district, he will doubtless continue to do fairly well in the future, if let alone. But, in all candor, the corporations should be satisfied with Mr. Foote's ser vices as a lawyer and not ask the taxpayers to pay the bill. Judge Erickson has made an admirable presiding judge. His record on the bench is spotless. He has rendered faultless public service. He owes allegiance to duty alone. He is prompt, impar tial, just. A lawyer of splendid ability, a citizen of high ideals and clean life, a judge of unquestioned probity, John E. Erickson is rec ognized today throughout Mon tana, by lawyers and laymen alike, as a credit and adornment to the judiciary. The people in this part of the district will show by their votes in November that they are satisfied with Judge Erickson's record and have no desire to dis pense with his services on the bench. Hear These Men Montana's next governor, Hon. Sam V. St- wart, and State Sena tor Tonm Stout, who will be one of our congressmen, will open the state campaign for the local demo crats. These two able and elo quent men will address the people of Libby and vicinity next Mon. day evening, Sept., 23, at the op era house at 8 o'clock. The new Libby band will furnish music for the occasion. Local democrats take particular pride in presenting these two candidates for high positions in the public service to the people of Lincoln county, They are clean, big and b'ainy men. They represent the best there is in Montana's public life today. Sam Stewart is one of the strong est and best men in this coonu - wealth. li has served the Mon tana democracy with devotion and conspicuous ability for mtnn\ 'ears. His public and private life show no blemish. He is elojmmnet*, in telligent, able, honeit. 11 h:~ risen to a cnmmnanding position in public affairs 1y reawn of hi. - ti - ling qualities as a citizen and his high ideals of public service. He knows Montana and her people; he realizes her great resources and her unlin'.itcd pos -bi!i'es. Hie will brine to the high office of governor a ripe experience, a clean record and a broad mind. As gov ernor of Montana he will take ex alted rank among the big men of the western world. Senator Tom Stout, who is one of the democratic candidates for congress, stands at the very fore front of Montana's progressive young democracy. He has made an enviable record in the state sen ate as an advocate of all measures designed to advance the interests of Montana and her people. He is a free-lance, independent, vigor ous and fearless. He does his own thinking and makes a mighty good jot) of it at all times. He will do what he thinks is right and he never thinks wrong, With Tom Stout and John M. Evans in the national house of representatives Montana will get back on the map of the nation. Stewart and Stout will open the ball in Libby. They will tell the people some plain truths in a pleas ing and instructive way. Every body in this region who is inter ested in public questions should hear them. It will be worth while. Stewart A Progressive In commenting on the democratic state ticket, State Senator Tom Stout of Lewistown, democratic nominee for congress and a pro nounced progressive, has the fol lowing to say in his paper, the Fer gus County Democrat, of Hon. Sam Stewart, the democratic nom inee for governor. '!This paper heartily supported the Hon. W. B. George, of Billings, for the gubernatorial nomination. The fact that he was defeated does not lessen our admiration for him in the slightest degree. We still believe that he would make Mon tana an ideal chief executive- But Mr. Gecrge was downed in a fair, square fight. It is impossible to conceive of any other man than a mighty good man defeating him, and we take off our hat to Sam V. Stewart, of Virginia City. We have known Mr. Stewart for many years and have never heard one word to his discredit. He is one of the state's foremost citizens, a big-hearted, generous fellow, pos sessed of a most admirable person ality, a good speaker, a fine law yer, and most loved where he is best known, in old Madison county, where he has resided for many years. His splendid personality and advanced progressiveness will contribute greatly toward his suc cess, by an overwhelming vote, in November." Jack Hall, the democratic can didate for railroad commissioner, is a hard-headed, intelligent, prac tical railroad man. He knows the business of railroading from A to Z. He has the confidence and friend ship of the boys who work on the line from cab to caboose. It will be a relief to the taxpayers to have one member of the railroad com mission who knows a cattle guard from a blind siding. WILL GET REDUCED RATE An excursion rate of one fare for the round trip from every rail road station in Montana to Helena and return will be in f rce on all railroads in the State duriig the week of September 23 to 28 inclus ive, on account of the Montana State Fair. Just what this conces sion on the part of the railroads means, is better understood, when it is stated that no other state in the union has ever been given terms of equal liberality for a sim ilar attraction. In most of the states the best that is ever secured is a rate of one and one third fare the round trip, and in many states there is no concession whatever. In North Dakota, for instance, whoever wishes to attend the State fair must pay full fare both ways, from whatever point he wishes to go. A rate of one fare for the round trip in Montana means a saving to State Fair visitors of sums as high as $18 or $20, for from some sec tions of Montana people have to travel 600 miles to reach the capital city, HERE'S SOME REAL NEWS It seemsn that our friend Dave McGinniss, who has been very busy for the last year or so build ing an electric railroad through the Flathead country-on paper-has a little spare time just now and has decided to build a few public ser vice plants in Lincoln county. A dispatch to the Spokane Chronicle from Kalispell one day last week reads this way: "Articles of incorporation of the Lincoln County Public Service cor poration have been filed in the of fice of the county clerk. The con cern is organized for the purpose of supplying gas, electricity, water and power principally, but the articles permit of the conduct of any other business for which private corpor ations are formed. "David R. McGinniss of Fresno Cal., Earl D Brown and John J. Green of this city are the incorpor ators and directors. The company is capitalized at $200,ooo. The new company at present owns val uable water power sites in Lincoln county which it is purposed to develope." There seems to be some question in this region about the extent and value of Dave's water power privileges but no one in Libby questions his capacity to furnish all the gas, and wind necessary to run several good sized plants.

Notable New Educational Features at the Spokane Pair. Successful fairs now pay far more attention to securing new educational features than was the custom a few years ago While the amusements are not neglected and there is always some. thing going on to entertain every pa tron, education is really the star fea ture, and nowhere else can an inquil ing visitor learn so much about the great Inland Empire and the general progress oL art and agriculture. The Spokane Fair this year proposes not only to provide this free eduec tion. but is going to bring thirty farm boys to the Fair to enjoy a week of fun and learning combined at the Fair's expense. The Washington State col lere wil look after the boys and will also install a comprehensive exhibit showing the work done at the college. The Idaho university and the Spokitne schools will also have complete exhib Its, and liberal prizes have been offered for rural school exhibits. Two other very practical features along this same line are a model creamery, which will operate daily, and a milk test open to all cows, grade or pure bred, all testing to be done in an open booth and fully explained. The Spokane Fair management want to make the week of Sept. 80 notable in every way and guarantee that every one who attends the Fair can, if they will, learn something about the line of agricultural science which most inter ests them. ýº r we*' TO OsT 6 Sill M--. BIG MASQUE CARNIVAL One of the big entertainment features of the Flathead County Fair will be a masque carnival, Friday night, October izth, com mencing at 8 P. M. on First Ave nue East in Kalispell. First Avenue East will be roped off three blocks from Railroad Street to Third Street for a big promenade and dance. One end of the street will be occupied by the Indians where war dances will be pulled off , and the north end will be occupied by dancing and masque promenade. This will be a feature of one evening. The Flathead band, under the able management of M. B. Riffo will furnish music for three days of the Fair and also furnish concert music on the streets Thursday and Friday evenings of the Fair. The program provides for the biggest social event ever held in Kalispell.

October gth-Loth-Isth and 12th, 1912. The harness races are open to all comers and a running race program for local horses in Flathead and Lincoln counties is being prepared. The Flathead track is one of the finest in the state and is better this year than ever, owing to the use of a California track harrow, the best and most improved im plement that hao tbpn devised for perfecting a race track. A modern stable for the accomo dation of race horses was built last year that is thoroughly up to date in addition to other box stalls on the grounds. The date set for closing entries September 15th, will be held open later. The purses are as liberal as those offered at any of the county fairs in the state and owing to the dates of our Fair, coming after the eastern Montana Fairs and the Spokane Fair, the Flathead race meeting this year should be one of the most interesting in the history of the Association.
