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
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
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
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
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
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
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.
The Catholic Ladies will serve
an election dinner in the I.O.O.F.
hall November 5th. Dinner served
from 11-30 to 2 o'clock.
In matter of estate of Henry Huffman,
Under and by vitue of an order of the
District Court of Lincoln County, Mon
tana, I will receive bids at the office of
Timothy Miller, Libby, Montana, up to
the 15th day of November, 1912, for the

Notable New Educational Features at

Successful fairs now pay far more
attention to securing new educational
features than was the custom a few
years ago While the amusements are

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
