Speaking of Colonel Crull.s appear ance before the Commercial Club of Lavina last week the Independent says: "D. W. Slayton introduced Col. Crull, as the orator whose name and fame were co-extensive with the state. The Colonel was at his best and brought tears or smiles to the faces of his audience at will. After a half hour of very enjoyable oratory the __ matter i Colonel was about to sit down when someone asked him his opinion of n „ ,, . . Roosevelt. Apparently somewhat sur prised, the orator paid a very glowing tribute to the Ex-President but very Ci.refully side-stepped the question of , . , .. .. , his chances for the presidential nation. Col. Crull's numerous refer ences to the last legislature—to the primary bills that failed, also to the failure to pass any legislation pro viding for the taxing of mines, led * * . , . , in some of Ins hearers to surmise that j. he is at least a receptive candidate for legsilature honors himself." an _ 0 _ _ 0 _ The Musselshell Advocate wrong fully accuses The Record of having written that "wireless message" from Alisher that appeared in The Record last week. The name of the author is on file and any interested person can secure the information by call ing at this office. The Record has no desire to butt into the local affairs of Musselshell or any other com munity, Its columns, however, are al ways open to opinions or communi cations where the author shows good faith and honesty of purpose. editor Sherman of the Musselshell Advocate advertises that he has a doublebarreled, 12-gauge shot gun that he wishes to sell or trade for vege tables. The Record's advice to Bro. Sherman is tc hang on to the gun, load it with buck shot and keep it around handy for an emergency. May be the Advocate man is preaching dis armament. While it is to be regr riet, time the se ver bonds were deîeit»! ii. the election Monday, it is hoped that things will shape themselves so that another election may be held with better success at some future date. WHO IS ENTITLED TO VOTE Editor Record: Permit me to say a few words with reference to the late bond election, particularly with reference to the oath required of those desiring to register. And first I wish to say that ever since the subject was brought up over a year ago I have been and am now in favor of a sewer system. At the time the election was order ed I believed the proposition would carry and wished to have everything in legal shape so that no hitch would occur in the sale of bonds. My opin ion is that all persons paying taxes on personal or real property are entit led to vote on the question submitted, | but Judge D. F. Smith of Kalispell, > who was in my office when I was dis- j cussing the election, told me I was clearly wrong, that they had gone into' the matter at Kalispell and that only j freeholders were allowed to vote at I such an election. As that city sold i the bonds so voted, I considered it 1 safe to proceed along the same lines ; rather than take my own view of the matter. As to what constitutes a freeholder, ! I still think that the holder of a con tract is not such a person. Wm. J. JAMESON -i — _ ~......

Mr. King talked for about an hour on the educational system and student life of France.
