Montana, under the Act of Concress of March 3, 1879 ! | The Republicans are planning on putting in a few planks ii their old worn-out platform, and by doing this they have an ide*> that they can deceive the public. Sixteen years ot control without Placing new timbers in a plat- j i orm is plenty for the comn or people, and as President Wilson r . * ' . . , is putting in new timber every , . ...

President Wilson is too m cl for them, and they will try a) means to make a change at ih next election, but Wilson is h people's candidate and the n< :xi time the Republicans will ne ei know that they were in the i tc at all.

Even the direct primary for the nom ination candidates for the pres idency is in line with democratic policies in that it places in the hands of the people the right t< say whom they want in thef rst office of the nation, and effectu ally deprives the bosses from dictating nominations and stifl ing the desires of the rank and file. When President Wilson, doubtless with the disgraceful wrangles of the last republican national convention in mind, advocates a presidential primary! he but enunciates a democratic doctrine which more and more is being accepted bv the people regardless of partisan affiliation ihem.
