A. A A A.A FIX THE RESPONSIBILITY. The wreck on the Great Northern last night will long be remembered as perhaps the worst occurrence of kind in the history of western rail roading up to this time. The list of fatalities is frightful to contemplate and the manner of them gives added horror to the event. Probably none have ever traveled over mount on railroads and noted the heavy grades without considering the possibility of such a disaster as that of last night and estimating the consequences. It is probable too, that the strongest imaginations never pictured more dire results than those which marked the disaster at Nyack. Who is responsible? is the question on everyone's lips. Investigation, condemnation and punishment can not bring the dead back to life, miti gate the suffering of the wounded nor assuage the grief of the bereaved, but it can go a long way toward prevent ing the recurrence of such a horror. The authorities owe it to themselves and to the public to see that such in vestigation is made as will fix the re sponsibility without fear or favor. High or low, if men were responsible for tlie torture and death of the 37 human beings who perished last nigh at Nyack, punishment should follow swift and sure. No perfunctory in vestigation or stereotyped form ct verdict will satisfy public opinion in a case of this kind. It is possible tVit the death and destruction of last night was the act of God. It is prob able that it was the result of man's carelessness or man's avarice. Public opinion will look to the ottlcials whose duty it is to investigate and report to do their full duty in this matter. No shirking should he tolerated. JUDGE NOYES. The Nome bar have united in an unanimous protest against the con tinuance of Judge Noyes in office as judge of that dislrict and a protest lias been sent to President McKinley. ' The most charitable judgment of Judge Noyes was expressed humorous ly by a quick-witted citizen who call ed my atention to a method of writing the name of the judge thus—"No-yes,' —and asked if the vacidiations and uncertainties of his course were not attributed to an inherent and ineradi cable weakness of his character, rath er than to positive rascality, says a Nome corespondent in the Seattle Times. For some days 1 gave careful study to the causes in court, with the charitable purpose of giving the judge the benefit of the doubt, in determin ining whether vacillation or criminal purpose was the keynote of Ills char acter. His decisions, to which my at tention was called; his pos ponemonts of hearings, which had no apparent purpose, so far as I could determine, other than to defeat justice and wear out honest litigants, the rogues mean while having quick advance notice from their attorneys that they need not attend the postponed bearings, as nothing would be done, Anally led me to dismiss as untenable that chari table consiruction of the course of the judge, which attributed the pro teciion of criminals and the spolia tion of honest men to the inherent weakness of the court. I have finally reached the conclusion that a citizen of Nome was n^esential right when he summed up the situation thus: "You will understand that in all mining towns there is a larger propor tion of what may bo termed the crim inal, and semi criminal classes than is apparent in older and more settled communities. In Nome, unhappily, a subdivision of ihoso classes differs somewhat from that usual in other mining communities. Here I should subdivide ihem thus, beginning with the most criminal and closing wi h the least : First, federal oiTcia's; sec ond, shyster lawyers, tnird, claim jump rs and kindred thieves; four h. gamblers; flf.y, pros! i Lutes." The ci-izcn then added, ' As this e'assifi • a ion is a gonortlizalion, it should be taken as sr.bj. et to that rule of pos ible exceptions, which should b .ipp led ;o ail generalizations." The ignorance of otherwise intelli gent railroad officials is aslonisliing when it comes to knowing anything about the details of a wreck on their road. The anxiety and suspense of friends and relatives of passengers seems a matter of indifference to them and they place all sorts of ob stacles in the way of anyone getting tlie facts. This may be good policy from the point of view of the railroad company, but it is mighty annoying to the rest of the community. Being unable to a 0 ree with the views on public questions 'of the Helena Record the Helena Independ ent applys an opprobrious epithet 1e tlie editor of the Record. This is a style of argument at which the Inde pendent has become particularly adept of late. THU WITNESSES WAITED. Louis Wassman, the Baud Coulee rancher and a unmoor of witnesses for the defense in the case of the state vs. Louis Wassman, arrived in the court of Justice Safford at two o'clock this afternoon, and, in com pany with the attorneys in the case and several newspaper reporters, waited patiently for an hour the com ing of the complaining wilness and tlie witnesses for the slate, says the Great Falls Leader. At the end of an hour a telephone message to Sand Coulee brought the information that Justice of the Peace, J. D. Meagher, to whom the subpoenas had been sent for service, was out of town and had been working at the Locke brick yard :-ou,h of this city since last Sunday. Then i: was announced by the court iliai the case would be postponed for hearing uni il Friday afternoon, Sep tember <ilh, at two o'clock, and if in the meanwhile it was learned that, the papers had been served and that the witnesses had failed to appear after being summoned the case would bo considered dismissed. This was tlie case in which Mr. Wassman was charged with both as sault in the third degree and also as sault with intent to commit rape. The eases were filed at the complaint of Mrs. Mary Popkovie upon whom the alleged assaults were supposed to nave been committed. The case was tiled early in July but Hie hearing was postponed for a time on account ot the absence in the east of Attorney J. \V. Freeman, who represented Wassman. The attorney for the de fense claims that the case was filed for the purpose of getting money our of tlie defendant, who is a prosperous rancher and that he considers it sim ply a blackmailing scheme.

His indulgent friends had praised tits attempts at painting and drawing to such an extent that the youth really imagined himself to be an artist. His wealthy friends even bought his pic tures for considerable sums of money "to encourage him," as they said Recently in walking along the Strand In Loudon he was much delighted at seeing one of his pictures, finely fram ed, in a dealer's window, especially as he was walking with a pretty lady lie fore whom lu* wished to appear in the best possible light Calling the attention of the lady to the picture, lie said: "Bardou me, but I have some curios! ty to know how my pictures stand com mereially."

They are of the yellow transparent variety, are sound as so many dollars, well sorted and packed, and a p easure to the eye is well as to the taste. "The apple crop of this year w ill be one of the bes: in quality that Mon ana has grown for a long time," said nspector Edwards, in commenting on his shipment. "The fruit is all late, wo weeks or more, and consequently paces have been held up higher, late in the summer than usual. But the .tome crop will now be in the market for good, and will supplant fruit from i distance. "This first shipment is all that any one could desire in the way of sound, perfect fruit. It is Al, without doubt Ail the Mon! ana apples will be so, if properly hand ed. There has been a great gain in the way of packing and caring for the fruit, ready for market, and inis year will be bet. er than the previous ones. Our fruit growing in dustry is reaching large proportions tnd deserves protection. "It might surprise the public to know that 2,700 separate packages of fruit were inspected land passed upon yesterday, and allowed to go on the market. These packages, or crates, ^ar of apples to 600 or 800 for peach ear of apples, to *00 or 800 for peach es and smaller fruits.
