Montana, under the Act of Congress of March 3. 1879 $2,000,000 Tax Imposed on Peo ple of Montana. The workmen's compensation act which is submitted to the people of Montana for their ap proval or rejection at the coming election, will carry with it, if it becomes a law, a tax of $2,000,000 to be levied upon the industries of Montana. Any measure which increases taxation merits thorough investigation. No increase in taxation is justi fiable unless there be a resulting benefit to those who must pay the tax. The State of Montana Ad vancement Association declares that the compensation bill now before the public is an ufair and unjust one, and will saddle the industries of the state with a bur den which they will bej unable to bear. This association appeals to the voters to read carefully the official pamphlet containing] Ini tiative Measure No. 7, note its de fects and then to join the associa tion in an effort to secure at the next session of the legislature a fair and just compensation bill which will enable working men to recover adequate compensation for injuries receivsd in the discharge of the duties in their employment and which at the same time will Interesting News Progressive Yates Pete Kramer was "breaking" horses Wednesday.

The people of Montana are in most matters characteristically loyal to their state. In Montana, as in few Western states, this local patriotism is strong. But the sentiment is lag gard in the matter of higher educa tion. Loyal as tlie people of Montana are to home industries, to home com merce, to home associations in other respects, they have not yet cut loose as they should from the old home school and college ties- they close their eyes to the advantages in higher education whicli exist in their adopted state. There is splendid, organized effort in support of the advance of Montana Industry in all lines—farming, mining and manufactures—but not yet have Montanans waked up to the fact that it is their duty to get solidly behind the deve.lopment of a state university which shall be worthy of the wonder ful advantages of the stale and in ac cord with its magnifleant possibilities. Climate Unexcelled. The opportunity is here. Ttie land endowment of higher education in Montana is great and a few years will make it productive of a splendid reve nue. The climate is favorable to the development of a university of power and influence. The environment is an Inspiration to students. The be ginning which has been made, under conditions not favorable to broad de velopment, has been eucouraging de spite its handicap. This year, through the means of the Initiative and referendum law, the people of Montana are to pass upon a proposed law which has for its pur pose the consolidation of the institu J place like easleru Montana.

This opportunity makes it possible for the state's thinking voters to declare whether they want a really great university In Montana. The question of location does not enter in any way into the phase of the problem which is presented to the state's voters. It is for them to de cide whether or not they want a great university—a university worthy to bear the name of Montana, a univer sity which will be of inestimable bene fit to the commonwealth in working out the perplexing problems which occur in development along new and untried lines. Voters to Decide Question. This is all the voters have to de cide this fall. They have merely to say, through their ballot, whether or not they want a true university in their state. With the natural condi tions which exist in Montana and with the land endowment which has been provided, there is nothing in the way of the development of such an institution in the state if the voters enact the consolidation law. Every Montanan with the interests of his state at heart, every voter of the state who is truly loyal to Mon tana, owes it to himself and to his state to give this question ills thought ful consideration. If lie looks at the question in the light of broad citizen ship, he will see at once the advan tage to the state, simply as a matter of prestige and local benefit, which will follow this consolidation. it is for the glory of Montana and for the good of Montana. 4 4- "By all means consolidate v your higher educational insti •5- tuitions in one site and under 4- one administration."—.1.
