There is a democrat in Missoula who evidently has a kick coming against the appointees of the demo cratic administration in that section. Well Missoula populists have been pretty well provided for but the dem ocrats have been forced to hustle a living outside of appointments. The fellow that was making the kick is not a good democrat, however, or he would not have taken the Miu soulian into his confidence, a rank re publican paper which should not be entertained with the grievances of the democrats. "I have about enough of this fu sion business," he remarked. "I voted for Joe Toole under the belief that it to of of 50 he was a democrat. See what he has given us in Missoula county? The first rattle out of the box one J. A. Ferguson was named for labor com misioner at a salary of $2,500 besides the perquisites. Whoever heard of his being classed as a democrat? I was always under the impression he was well provided for when he 're signed' as the labor candidate for gov ernor last fall, hut I could have stood his appointment if the thing had end ed there; but the next move toward recognizing Missoula county was the naming of Ferguson's brother-in-law, J. E. Powers, as assistant commis sioner, at $1,800 salary. Powers was a candidate on the republican legisla tive ticket in this county four years ago. The next recognition the dem ocrats of Missoula county received at the hands of our fuhion state adminis tration was the appointment of that eminent fusionist, Harry D. Moore, to tne position of first assistant to our distinguished fusion attorney gener al, at $2,000 per year. The same Har ry D. Moore who once remarked in a republican ' convention' in Missoula that 'a democrat would 1 fuse with a yellow dog.' "Oh, we have had lots of recogni tion besides. There was a state tim ber scaler to be named for thi? coun ty, and Frank Ives, another gentle man who has been a shining light in the populist party, got that; and Judge Myers, once a republican coro ner, late republican city treasurer, and later republican justice of the peace, was our democratic represen tative in the legislative clerkship as signed to Missoula county." The old gentleman waxed wroth. "I believe we did get one job," he remarked, "Arthur Higgins, whose brother Frank, is lieutenant governor of the fusion administration, and whose other brother is county treasurer, demand ed recognition for the balance of the family and was appointed game war den, for this district. It makes me mad," he continued. "I am not an as pirant myself for any office on earth, but there are democrats in Missoula who should haye received some recog nition. There was Judge Sloane, Sam Searles, Phil Gagnon aiid other good democrats, who were for the straight Clark ticket last summer, when doz ens, of these fellows wÀo have taken all the appointments were sitting on the fence, not knowing vyhich side they would "fall on, until the dough had been distributed. It mhkes me mad er than h—I," he said and went on. A considerable improvement in the educational facilities for the north western Indians will oe made after congress meets and increases the ap propriation. Several new school houses will be built and equipped with modern appliances and so arranged that a great many Indian children in the northwest will be accommodat ed. The officials of the Indian de partment now realize that such a scheme will do much toward bringing the Indian children to school. Many of them are now kept at home be cause there is not sufficient room for them in the school buildings. En larged quarters would remove the one objection that the Indian parent has to letting his youngsters enjoy Uncle Sam's assimiliation of educational training. This story is told of a hard working printer in Chicago who had two wives and two jobs, it being necessary for him to do that amount of work to keep up both his establishments. The poor printer pretty nearly worked himself to death in the effort to keep the wolf from his two doors, and the wife who only got his short salary, of $i0 per, finally discovered his trea son. The other wife got his $25 salary and she was getting along nicely while the other one was eating bakers' bread and skim milk. This printer never had any time to get drunk and it kept him pretty busy to find time to sleep. He is happy now in prison. H. Bolster, secretary and manager of the Spokane Interstate Fair, re membered the Bee with season tickets for the fair, which commences Sep tember 10, continuing until the 21st. The Fair will be held on grounds re cently purchased by the association within the city limits and besides the usual exhibits there will he nine days of horseracing and $25,000 hung up in purses. The Royal Italian hand, of 50 artists will supply the musical at ty, $1 25 $ 1 for $ in es th> ule or on will er. sive are ers' of of tractions, at a cost to the manage ment of $5,500. Why should the New York World speak of Wm. J. Bryan as a populistic plague. There was a time not so long ago when the New York paper was one of his strongest supporters, but it has evidently had a change of heart. So has Mr. Bryan and he is not to day much of a populist. He has taken thé democratic camp in and is a dem ocrat now, if anything. The president is again figuring on a Pacific coast trip, and will probably come to Montana next summer. Mc Kinley will have to put up a forfeit when it comes to having Montana towns prepare for his reception, as they have been fooled once, already. Banks must pay taxes on mortgages held by them as security for loans, says Assistant Attorney General Met tler. The deposits which have been loaned are also taxable property of depositors. The toy pistol, the snapping fire cracker and the reverhratlng giant may now be heard in the land. Young America has already begun the cele bration of the Glorious Fourth. ing land sto ta. all al ed There is a strong sentiment in Te ton county favoring the establish ment at Choteau of a free high school, and it is expected that a big majority vote will be cast for the proposition. WAR REVENUE. The people of the United States have been paying a pretty henv" war revenue, through special imposts since the declaration of war against Spain, but are now able to do away with much of the special taxation. The last stamps have been placed on checks, for the present at least. To day the changes in the internal rev enue taxes go into effect, and we will have to affix no more stamps on ex press receipts and telegraph messag es, certificates of deposit and money orders will not require a payment to Unele Sam in order that they may be legal. Here is a list of the items up on which the tax has been removed: Bank checks, 2 cents. Bills of lading for export, 10 cents. Bonds of indemnity and bonds not otherwise specified, 50 cents. (Repeal ed except as to bonds of indemnity.) Certificate of damage, 25 cents. Certiflcte of deposit, 2 cents. Certificates not otherwise specified. 10 cents. Charter party. $3 to $l(k in Chewing gum, 4 cents each $1 value. Commercial brokers, $20. Express receipts, 1 cent. Insurance—Life, 8 cents' on each $100; marine, inland, Are, 1-2 cent on each $1; casualty, fidelity and guaran ty, 1-8 cents on each $1. Lease, 25 cents to $1. Manifest for custom house entry, $1 to $5. Money orders, 2 cents for each $100. Mortgage or conveyance in trust, 25 cents for each $500 in excess of $ 1 , 000 . Perfumery and cosmetics, 3-8 cents for each 5 cents. Power of attorney to vote, 10 cents. Power of attorney to sell, 25 cents. Promissory notes, 2 cents f.r each $ 100 . Proprietary medicines 1-8 cent for each 5 cents. Protest, 25 cents. Telephone messages, 1 cent Warehouse receipts, 25 dents Of these items the most important in point of aggregate revenue are the bank check tax, the taxes upon propri etary medicines, an 1 those upon prom issory notes, insurance an-1 mortgag es —the bank check easily lea lin^ the others with an aggregate yearly rev enue of some $7,000 000. Altogether th> taxes repealed will save the péc ule over $22 000,000. The tax* s on legacies of an educational, religious or charitable character were repealed on March 1. Additional to the above are many taxes which will be reduced on July 1, chief among them being those on beer, cigars, cigarettes, tobacco and snuff, conveyances, bill of exchanges, sales of products at exchanges, and passage tickets. These ■ reductions will about equal the amount taken away by the repeal of taxés altogeth er. There will remain, however, a con siderable number of war revenue im positions to remind the people that the "war" is still with us in!the expen sive consequences which it has been allowed to assume, and these taxes are likely to remain for an indefinite period. Such are the taxes on bank ers' capital and surplus, on the issue of stock, bonds and certificates of in debtedness, on brokers, on transfers of stock, on proprietors of circuses billiard rooms, theaters, etc., on sleep a of ing and parlor car tickets, and on in land drafts and bills of exchange. Par ticularly fruitful of revenue in these times of corporate consoRdati ms and sto 1: market activity ha,*; heu; '.to ta. es on orig ,ul issue of stock « « i binds, and tr• .-sferk of stock—tax* s which have ;vrl, i 'y not been 'cli -it all to speak of. Quite likely many customs taxes will give way or be modified before these new internal taxes are repealed, and the taxes on stock may yet come into a more ex treme use as a check upon the purely gambling side of stock exchange trans actions. It is probable that the feder al taxing power has moved into this field to stay. The government will redeem stamps unused, but in the possession of pur chasers after today, on certain condi tions. Documentary and proprietary stamps must be presented in quanti ties of $2 or more and within,iwo years of the time of their puronaro, and claims for recovery of money must be accompanied by the deahsr'e and collector's certificate of date and the amount of sale. Stamps not in the same condition as when s ild will net be redeemed unless their condi tion can be satisfactorily explained. Claims for the redemption of imprint ed stamps on cheeks, drafts, etc., must be accompanied by the imprinted pa per and will pass through the collec tor of the district in which the order for the imprinting of the stamps was purchased to the office at Washington, where such claims will finally be set tled.
