This fact alone, e1ft to' to he ,.kalh consideration mended. Referring to the free silver atti tude of Byan and the erroneous be lief that the great commoner had changed his views concerning it, Mr. Walsh showed that such was not the case. Mr. Bryan simply gave up his free silver idea when the greater amount of money coined in the United States warranted a change of views. Even the republi can platform, said Mr. Walsh, had once upheld the international free coinage of silver. The attitude of Taft on injunctions was strongly condemned. The re publican party was shown to be in the toils of the trusts, with about ten men dominating the commercial organism of America. The steel trust was shown to own property worth as rauch as the whole of New England. The ferocious octopus was steadily increasing his never loosening grasp as fresh industries were seized in a merciless grip, and all the independent manufacturers forced to the wall, while struggling vainly to combat the merciless on slaught. Nearly every trust is known to be contributing to the re publican campaign fund, hence the reluctance of party leaders concern ing the great plank of publicity of campaign funds. Even the paper trust, which threatens to eventually throttle the press of the country, has had a hand in the furtherance of the policies of Mr. Roosevelt, in herited by Mr. Taft and repudiated completely by Mr. Bryan. As a wool grower, Mr. Walsh was in favor of the revision of the tariff. He also favored complete abolition of the duty on wood pulp which was threatening to annihilate American forests, while those of Canada were preserved. The speaker had an immense a mount of data at hand and was pre pared to prove his every point. Great applause was manifested as Mr. Walsh grew eloquent in his re pudiation of present day republican principles. F:.of. Frank P. Baird of Wibaux, democratic candidate for senator from Dawson county, was introduc ed after Mr. Walsh had closed, and gave a few remarks relative to his ideas of what constitutes a good legislator-one who realizes all his duty. His remarks were very well received. of the voters, should result in the marking of hundreds of ballots in favor of S. B. Chappell. A STRONG CANDIDATE Prof. Frank P. Baird, the Daw son county democratic nominee for state senator, is better known at Wibaux, where he has been princi pal of the schools for several years, than in any other part of the county, but his magnetic personality readily makes friends of all with whom he comnes in contact. As a teacher Mr. Baird ranks among the best. With his high ideals of government, there can be no doubt that, should he be elected senator, Dawson county people would have a man in the senate who would anticipate their every desire and need. Mr. Baird is a native of Pennsyl vania, but he has taken up a home stead near Wibaux and will hence forth be a permanent acquisition to the hosts of the best people of the county, We need more citizens and lawmakers like him. Township plats for sale at the Monitor Office, To the People of Dawson County: In view of the direct charges made by the Democratic Central Committee and by Sheriff Larson, that if I am elected sheriff, my ad ministration will be conducted in the interests of the liquor dealers, gamblers and sporting element, I want to assure the citizens of Daw son county that: I have not directly or indirectly made any promises of any kind to the saloon men, the gamblers or the sporting element. If elected sheriff my administra tion will be in the interests of law and order. Immunity will not be granted to any violator of the law; the law will be vigorously and im partially enforced without fear or favor: The insinuations made by the Democratic Committee and Sheriff Larson, that I have been retained by the saloon and gambling interests Will Make Keogh Remount Station Miles City, Oct. 23.-M. W. Manr, the caretaker at Fort Keogh, who was appointed when the post was turned over to the interior depart ment by the war department, has received orders to restore the super vision of the garrison to Lieutenant Cook, in command of the small gar rison there at present. A troop of cavalry will be sent to the post in the near future. The ANNOUNCEMENT Tokna, Montana, Oct. 20, 1908. To the Electors of Dawson County, Gentlemen: Having been nominated by the democratic county conven tion for the office of clerk of the district court, I take this means of soliciting your support for such office. I am 'engaged in the business of stock raising and farming and all my interests are in Dawson county. I had hoped to be able to meet all of you personally before election, but the time until election day is so short that it will be impossible for me to do so. However, I shall make an active campaign for election and see as many voters as possi ble. If I should fail to see you personally, I hope you will consider my candidacy favorably before casting your ballot on election day. Yours respectfully, JOSEPH H. KIICHLI. To the Citizens of Dawson County: Do you believe the saloon keepers have the right to dictate the policy of your officers as to the enforcement of the la:s? Do you believe .i the, enforcement of the gambling laws of the state? Do you prefer a administration that is satisfactory to the liquor dealers, gamblers and sporting element, rather than to one of law and order? The G.eldive Liquor Dealers' Association, has decided to ute all means within its power to defeat Sheriff Lar son for re-election. Why? Sheriff La i~si pledged to continue a rigid en fercement of the gdr liu laws if re-elcted. WHICH DO YOU PREFER? ANDREW LARSON. are ABSOLUTELY FALSE. Do you want a sheriff who will permit the escape of prisoners charged with the most revolting of all crimes? Do you want a sheriff who will permit his undersheriff to take a prisoner while on trial to a saloon and have a hilarious time before the bar? Do you want a sheriff who will lay aside his star of office and engage in a saloon brawl? Do you want the livestock rustlers to be permitted to continue their depredations unmolested? Will you take time to look into these matters and then decide for yourself to whom the gamblers, sporting element and violators of the law have a right to look for im munity from prosecution? Respectfully, JOHN R. CORNELL. reason of this is believed to be that the government has decided to act favorably on the recommendation of Major H. T. Allen, who purchases horses for the government, that Fort Keogh, instead of being aban doned as was ordered, be made a remount station for the holding and training of army horses, for which purpose the post is most admirably adapted.

The dairy train, consisting of three cars, was located near the- depot last Thurday afternooan and evening, and was visited by a goodly number of farmers qa.local dairymen during its stay here. To say that much interest was invoked in the many interesting things see would be stating the sit uation very mildly. The train was in charge of Professors Cooley, Elliot and Clark of the State Agricultural College of Bozeman. John Hauber, an expert dairyman from the college ex perimental farm,, also accompanied the train. The gentlemen in charge were very enthusiastic in regard to the fu ture of the industry in Montana. There are now 38 creameries in the state, 34 of which are running contin uously. In five years more the indus try is expetned to increase 100 per cent. Five cows, all of the highest dairy class, are carried in the baggage car of the train. Two cows are used for milking and three for the demonstra tion of the beast points in high class dairy animals. The milking machine wasa great curiosity to the Glendive people, as it was the first one ever seen here. Milking was done at 5 p. m. and was witnessed by a goodly crowd. The machine has been used by the col lege for 16 months and the professors highly recommend it. This appliance is suitable fqr say dairy,with a capa city from .25. cows up. With it, it is possible for one man to, milk about 30 cows per hour, or four or five times as • • - , . w • = . • •• . , Officers Warned By Comptroller New York,. Oct., 2.-There were three important developments today in the joint trial of Charles W. Morse and Alfred G. Curtis, who are charged with conspiracy and violation of the federal banking laws, in the management of the de funct National Bank of North Americas First the prosecution pro duced a -letter to show that Comp troller of the Curreney Ridgely had foreseen the impending failure of the bank and that hee had written a number-of letters to Morse and Cur tis, warning them against making such larne -lons, on what he termed unsubstantial.eollateral, to the offi cers and directors of the bank, es pecilty naming the loans made to Morse. Next the prosecution; produced evidence to show that large -loan made by the bank-to Miss Kather ine W. Wilson, Mr. Morse's secre tary, had beenpaid in part by profits coming out of a :undertaking of the "New , Havea. Improvement." The profits, Edward B. Ware, former caher of the bank, said, should have gone to the bank, but he testi flied Mc:Ourtis and Mr. Morse had arrangvdsathat-they went to cover in part cthe Wilsom n loan.

There was some interest toward the end of the session when the pro quickly as by hand. The machine is very sanitary and its clean feature strongly recommends it. Where com petent milkers are hard to get, it would prove of inestimable value to a large dairy. The lectures on the train are given in the chair car. This coach also car ries a special library for farmers. Practically everything of interest to a progressive agriculturist can be con sulted in this extensive library, and the gentlemen in charge stated that it had been freely used everywhere hhe train had stopped. The State Agricultural College at Bozeman is coming to be famous in its line among the institutions of the various commonwealths. Its corps of instructors cannot be excelled in the country, as regards numbers, and not often are their equals found on the faculties of agricultural colleges. Sit uated as is the college in the fam ous Gallatin valley, it has almost every facility at hand for the best in struction to its rapidly growing stu dent body. The visit of the train to Glendive at this time is especially propitious, as our local creamery is yet in its com parative infancy, and our local dairy men require encouragement to expand. There is a ready and growing sale for all dairy products and the amount of these which Montana has to import, would prove that there is a great fut ure for the business within the state. secution put on the stand Miss Julia M. Wolfe, a stenographer for the Knickerbocker Trust company, An effort was made to have admitted stenographic notes taken by the young woman of a conversation be tween Mr. Morse and Mr. Shurman, the latter counsel for the Knicker bocker. The defense objected on the ground that the conversation took place after the dates on which Morse and Curtis are charged with violation of the banking law. The prosecution indicated that the reading of the stenographer's notes would be very much in the line of a confession. Judge Hough said that he would re quire time to pass upon the question and asked the lawyers for both sides to submit briefs. A PROMINENT WIBAUXITE J SBilyeu, democratic nominee for assessor, is one of the well known ranchers and stockgrowers of Wibaux, which little city he has claimed as his home town for many years past. Mr. Bilyeu is thorough ly acquainted with almost every part of the county and would, if elected, bring to the performance of his duties, those qualities, the hard common sense and a natural adapta bility for figures and statistics which are oftenest found possessed by the best assessors. He has an accurate knowledge of Dawson county valua tions and would go at his work with no preliminary inaccuracies. There is no doubt that he will poll a great vote on election day. New Brunswick. St. John, N. B., Oct..26.-The lilb erals won a decisive victory in New Brunswick today, electing 10 and possibly 11 members of parliament out of a delegation of 13. In the house the liberals had eight mem bers from this province and the con servatives five, Carbon parer for sale at the Moni. tor Office.
