A special meeting of the county com mittee of the National Greenback Labor party of New York, held a few evenings ago, repudiated B. F. Butler and resolved to support Grover Cleveland. This action was a consequence of the exposures that clearly dem oust rated the fact that Butler is iu the employ of the republican national committee and that his candidacy is for the purpose of drawing votes from Cleveland to elect Blaine. Since the exposures Butler's bo»m has reversed and instead «if « being greeted with enthusiasm, he is ; re cti ving a very cool reception in his New Yerk X-anvass. An East Gallatin correspondent of the Bozeman Chronicle writes as follows: "I am a republican and expect to vote the republican ticket, but I will not vote for «man who is in favor of county division. I am constrained to be believe that the republican ticket so far as the legislature is coucerned is in favor of county divis ion, and unless I learn something to change my views I shall vote for the nominees on the democratic ticket." This is doubtless the sentiment of a great majority of the residents of Gal latin valley regardless off party. In that 'art of the county them will be a nearly * vote against the rcyublirsn legiala . tive nominees. di Personally we were, aad. atf BW, posed to county division, bat a« *' to the republican county convention, felt that it would be twjwstwnd un-repnta-,}^ lie«« to de»y t0 . the ^ . ate representation on the county^ becau^ tlmir " ours oil the q 1 „ .... Aldersoa of the Conner. m* Vi i r>/,. to you allowed what you call proportionate representation on the county ticket that you might first obtain a complimentary vote for territorial delegate nominee; and afterward lead the republicans of Living ston into die ditch. Alderson is an Ana nias come to judgment. ALFRED M YE ICS. The Chronicle m its last issue eulogizes the gentleman whose name appears above. We have no doubt that he has a lot of Polled Angus cattle and is a good business man—both of which are excellent qualifi cations iu a legislator. But Mr. Myers is not a resident of Gallatin county. Should he on Tuesday • next offer to vote at any precinet of the county where we happened to l»e, we should challenge his vote and he could not take the requisite oath. During over a year past—since for a tew weeks he lived in a tent on Shield's river with his family—lie has made no pretensions to live in this county. His home has been in Custer or Dawson counties or in Cali fornia, where he now is with his family. He has not lieen in Gallatin county one week at a time or one month in all during a year past. He left here after a visit of a day or two over a month ago and has not yet returned. If asked on election day whether he had resided in Gallatin county for thirty days preceding he would be forced to return a negative answer. He therefore could not vote, and no man who is not a voter in the county is elegible tor election to.any office in the county's gift. If elected» his seat will be contested suc cessfully.' The twlk that he should be elected because he has ifcrge property in terests in the county is all nonsense. As well talk of electing Thomas Sturgis, of Cheyenne, Wyoming, or Major Armstrong, of Washington, or J. S. Boardman, of New York, because they have laige property interests in the county. We have plenty or residents of the county who have a goodly amount of property and it is not necessary *to import legislators for Gallatin county even if it were lawful. WILLIAM Fi.Y. • We desire to urge upon the people of Living ton, and particularly democrats, their duty to support William Fly for the office of county treasurer. Apart from the fact that he is pre-eimhentlv fitted for the office we wish to remind the people of Livingston of the following facts, of which we are personally cognizant. On the 23rd day of AugUst, Walter Cooper, J. A. Sav age, William Fly and T. L. Lewis met at Bozeman as a county democratic commit tee to adjust the apportionment of .dele gates and call a county convention. VVhen the question of apportionment came up it became vers apparent that the committee was divided as to the relative claims of the eastern and western portions of the coun ty. It was demanded that Mission, Shields river and Upper Bouidvr be allowed dele gates; and that Livingston be allowed a certain number which should be to the Bozeman apportionment in the same pro portion as the republican allowance to Livingston bad been to the republican apportionment to Bpzemau. It was prop erly claimed that in the party interest the democrats sliould not do worse than, tÉt republicans and that in any event the ap portionment asked was lair. Judge Sav age was spokesman for the east side. Cooper and Lewis united to oppose him. William Fly revolved in his mind the propositions made by Judge Savage and, acknowledging their justice and fairness, voted with him. Thus a deadlock was established. Mr. Fly with the staunch ness, firmness and belief in justice that are his characteristics refused to retire from tlie position he had taken. He waubd to see a fair and satisfactory ap portionment in the interests of the demo cratic party, while Çooper anti Lewis were willing to sacrifice everything to down Livingston and the east side of the county. It wasouly after a deadlock hadexisted un til 8 o'clock m the morning that they grant ed the concessions that gave Livingston and Shield's river and. Gardiner and Cooke * fair apportionment» and had it not been tor the noble action of William Fly the east side precincU wanhl have been treated poorly indeed. Therefore we say that Mr. Fly is entitled to the consideration from our people that laie character and hie record have earned him. His action on that occasion has unjustly made him enemies and the people of this portion of the countyshould mart warmly rememlier or the enemies he has made. But * t'-f • -■ - . •* ff we do not mean to eonVey the idea 1 that É WM. the courage, the firmness Mid the by the right, and that right the democrats and the people iy of eastern Gallatin cöunty. A. new system of signals for the move ment of trains, which sliaU be as uniform as the Standard time system, is being per fected by the progressive railway man agers. The signals include those made with the hand, lamp, bell-cord, and whistles. Some of the prominent signals will be as follows: Go ahead, hand or lamp raised and lowered vertically; stop, hand or lamp swung across the track; back up, hand or lamp swung in a circle. Bell cord—One puli, start; two, stop; three, back. Flags and colors—Bed, dan ger signal ; blue, signal of caution ; white, safety ; green, carried on the engine, an other engine following with equal right with tint carrying signals. The supreme court of Ohio, three judges affirming and two dissenting, have declared the Scott liquor tax law as un constitutional. The decisions in several pending cases are all to this effect. 00.-00000000000000000000000 THE GILT EDGE! F. H. LORING, Prop., CHOICER WINES LIQUORS and CIGARS.
