Counter Claims by
At the beginning of the recent ses
sion the Democratic majority of the
bouse was particularly anxious to
make a record for economy, and to get
below the former mark of ''billion dol
lar sessions." But the figures as com
pleted show that congress spent $1,
019,000,000, and Representative Fitz
gerald, chairman of the Appropria
tions committee of the house, blames
Mr. Taft, saying that the president
was not frank in submitting estimates,
and that the administration figures
bad to be raised, in order to carry on
the different branches of the govern
ment. If Mr. Fitzgerald is right, the
boosting of the estimates was done
by the senate, and we are told that
the house was guiltless. Mr. Fitz
gerald's party associates sustain all
be says. To make it more emphatic
that the Democratic majority did good
work during the past two years,
Speaker Clark has been down in New
England, making speeches in which
the accomplishments of the house
bave been set forth in complimentary
terms. The retort, however, comes
from many Republican sources, and
former Speaker Cannon charges that
the Democrats denied appropriations
In many instances at the expense of
efficiency. He points out that while
the Democrats have persistently criti
cized the Republicans for extrava
gance, that they have gone way be
yond the billion dollar mark. Repub
lican Leader Mann is the most severe
of all the house critics, and he credits
only one good bill to the session. He
refers to the Panama canal adminis
tration bill. "And in the main," says
Mr. Mann, "that was a bill prepared
by me in a prior congress." In speak
ing of the rules Mr. Mann said: "The
claimed reformation of the rules has
proven a farce. That the house has
been inefficient is shown by the fact
that over two hundred senate bills,
which passed the senate, remain un
acted on in the house. It is a con
stant boast that the Democrats at this
session passed a law providing for
publicity of campaign contributions.
Such is not the fact. They only passed
an amendment to the law which had
previously been passed by a Republi

It appears that geography has a lot

the connections bteween political com-1

doubtless he established that every
candidate for a century who has as
pired to the presidency, has had fi

of President Taft's and Colonel Roose
velt's campaigns, the opponents of j
either of them, have no difficulty in
assigning long arrays of "interests"
to the respective causes. As a matter
of fact these two latter candidates
appear to have plenty of financial
ammunition for the campaign, but Mr.
Wilson's treasury, notwithstanding
McAdoo. is said to have "gone broke"
repeatedly—although the campaign
has hardly begun.
Tillman to Come Back
in South Carolina.
The people of the state of South
Carolina have chosen Ben Tillman
to succeed himself in the United
States senate. The old-time, firey
southerner, who used to win with a
pitchfork and an angry tongue, has
become as meek as Moses, and his
appeal to his people to "let him die
in the harness." evidently struck a
sympathetic spot among the people
of South Carolina. Senator Tillman,
while able to carry on his work, and
attend the senate sessions regularly,
is suffering from an incurable malady,
and is liable to pass away at any time.
He understands full well the uncer
tainty of his condition, and from one
who formerly acted much like a sav
age at times, the old war horse has
become a man of tender sympathies
and exceptional qualities of forbear
ance. with the result that his old ene-|
mies have gradually become his stead
New leaue of Stamps for the
San Francisco Exposition.
When the post office department
got out a set of stamps for the Chicago
World's fair, a new branch of useful
ness was discovered for the postal
authorities. Every exposition since
that time has demanded and secured
an issue of stamps. Now comes San
Francisco, which all of us will have to
help advertise on our correspondence.
A new two-cent stamp in commémora- ;
tion of the Panama-Pacific exposition
in San Francisco in 1915. has been ap-,
proved by Postmaster General Hitch- !
cock. It is about an inch wide and an
inch and a quarter long. It bears an
engraving representing the Gatun
locks of the Panama canal, showing a
steamship emerging from the northern
lock. In the middle distance is a group
of tall trees, and in the background
lies the hills of the Isthmus. Across
the top are the words: "U. S. Post
age," and directly below these lines:
"San Francisco. 1915." No color has
been selected for the stamp. The
postmaster general has also approved
designs for the new one, five and ten
cent Exposition stamps. They will
all commemorate historical events of
the Panama-Pacific regions.
The New Ways in
Senator Bourne of Oregon says the
time is rapidly approaching when con
gress will remain in practically con
tinuous session. In support of this
opinion he brings the record of the
past two years, wherein events re
quiring congressional action have al
most constantly arisen.

Tuffley is the name of the new
postoffice which has recently been i
established about 20 miles northwest j
of Lavina. Postmaster C. L. Tuffley,
to whom is due the credit for pro-;
curing this much needed office, has ;
very generously donated his time and
work for the next three months in
order that the farmers in his neigh
borhood may receive their mail regu
larly each week. After three months, j
Mr. Tuffley will no doubt be supplied
with a mail route, and we predict a
prosperous future for the new town ,
of Tuffley. j
John Morefield was in the city the
first of the week on a business trip, j
John has recently sold 1,000 lambs to
Owen Parham, of Billings, to be de
livered within the next week. The
price paid was $2.75 per head, which
is an unusually good price. John has
been in Montana now for 19 years,
and reported an incident that will no
doubt be read with interest by many
of the old timers. In passing a band
of George Watson's sheep on his way
to Lavina, John saw waht he supposed
was one of the sheep dogs, run into
the band of sheep, pick out a nice fat
one, and already had the sheep half
a mile from the band when John saw
it was a coyote and immediately called
the sheep aw ay. John says that in all
his experience in the sheep business
i n Montana he has never before seen
a coyote go into a band of sheep in
broad daylight and pick out the fat
test and juciest sheep in the bunch.
A MUSSELSHELL NEWS A
A Advocate A
Sixty thousand bricks were shipped
to Roundup during the past week by
Handel Bros, for the construction of
the new opera house there.
Mrs. W. T. Sherman and wife left
overland for Hysham Monday.
The floor is being repaired on the
bridge across the Musselshell. Tues
day a horse stepped through and this
started the repairing.
Messrs. Griggs brothers of St. Paul
spent Thursday and Friday in the city
on business. They own the Mills ranch
leased to the Mqsselshell Sheep com
C. M. Jacobs, who lives about half
a mile from town, brought in some
ears of squaw corn that were certainly
surprising. They were prize ears, large
uniform kernals, full clear to the end
of the cob, and the ears were 10 to 11
inches long. It surely demonstrates
that we can grow corn here. They
were well out of the way of frosts.
Mrs. Jacobs and her son Willis
Strang went to Butte Monday where
Willis will enter the School of Mines,
to take the course of mining engineer
Willis is a bright young man and we
are confident he will make good.
There was a picnic given at Mr.
and Mrs. E. C. Odell's last Friday.
Those who attended from here were
Fred Handel and family, George Han
del and family, W. L. Tillman and
family, A. E. Swanson and wife of
Chicago, and Mrs. J. J. McFaul. Be
sides there were Judge Ostrander, Mr
and Mrs. C. M. Jacobs, and Byron
Jacobs. Paul Roseberry and O. M
Fredell went out in the evening so
they could have the young ladies all

mean trick for the two to play on the
The special school election for the
issue of bonds for the erection of a
new school house in Musselshell, held
the 5th, carried by a good majority
Forty-nine votes were cast, of which
39 were for bonds. It is now the mo
tion of the board of trustees to pro
ceed to sell the bonds and build a
school house that will be a credit t
the entire community. No one thing
comes more nearly touching the live
of the community than a good school
house and it is to the credit of the
people that they carried the proposi
lion by so large a vote.
A MELSTONE HAPPENINGS A
A Graphic A
The bank has taken on quite a
cityfied appearance since the new fix
tures and furniture have been put In
and the floor oiled.
We have been informed that C. A.
Palmquist will erect a three story
brick hotel on the lot near the depot
where the Parkinson real estate build
ing now stands.
Rea Morford has purchased a lot
adjoining the one owned by William
Herron on which Dr. Hedges has an
office and will erect a new brick build
ing for his drug store.
Frank Potter, who recently lost an
eye by the breakage of the water glass
on an engine here in Melstone, stopped
off here Monday night to say hello to
the boys. He was coming from Butte
and was on his way to Miles City.
Mrs. Hartely and son, George, were
in Monday looking over the fire ruins.
They lost quite heavily in the Hartley
& Hansman building but they have
the consolaltion of knowing that they
still have the dry land farm. They
took out a load of lumber with them
to do some building.
An employee from the 79 ranch met
with a very painful accident this morn
ing while driving a supply wagon.
The team became frightened and ran
away, throwing the driver under the
wagon Just far enough that the wheel
went over his leg and broke it right
off at the knee Joint So far we have
not learned the man's name but he
is now at the Smith rooming house.
Sunday afternoon Madge Grant, a
daughter of one of our former hotel
proprietors, and Dan Drake an engi
neer, were quietly united in marriage

TWO ESCAPE FROM
Lewistown, Sept. 9.—Officers today
are scouring the country in search of
James and Dean Parkinson, who, in
the early hours of the morning, ef
fected their escape from the county
jail by sawing through a barred win
dow. They used a common table

ADMITS STEALING $40,000.00.
New Bedford, Mass., Sept. 9.—Edgar
Lord, treasurer of the New Bedford
Co-Operative bank and the Acushnet
Co-Operative bank, accused of taking
$20,000.00 from each institution, was
granted a hearing today and the pro
ceedings will probably continue tomor
row. Although both banks have sus
pended for 90 days, hank officials said
after a hurried examination of the
books that there would be no loss to
shareholders or depositors. The only
loss, they said, would be in a shrink
age of the profit accounts. The offi
cial expressed the opinion that the
real cash loss would pot exceed 825,
000. part of the $40,000 alleged to have
been stolen having been paid back.
