Yellowst one Monitor.
Published at Glendive, Dawson County. Montana by E. A. MARTIN. SUBSCRIPTION PRICE, $2.00 PER YEAR Entered as second-class matter March 3, 1906, 4M the postoffice at Glendive, Mont., under the Act of Congress of March 8. 1879. THURSDAY. JUNE 5, 1913. Advices from Washington state that full committee assignments of the democratic house members weie made on Monday. Representative Stout is assigned to the committees on public lands, irrigation of arid lands and expenditures in the inter ior department. Representative Evans is assigned to the committees on Indian affairs, mines and mining and land claims. Both congressmen are well placed and both are on com mittees that handle legislation im portant to Montana and the west generally. Being also in line with the expressed preferences of the gentlemen for the assignments they desired, it seems certain that Mont ana's congressmen will be concerned in most valuable legislation. Under recent date, two neyv news papers were born in Dawson county. The names of the infants are The Jordan Gazette and the Paxton Pilot. Joseph P. Parker is the publisher of the former and F. G. Tuttle of the latter. Both papers are good lusty infants, and as the adjacent country develops will doubtless get their full share of business. The publishers are newspaper men of experience and are bound to make good if given any kind of an opportunity. The Monitor joins in well wishes. Daw son county now has an even dozen papers published within its borders, and these all faithfully protray the advantages of the county to the newcomer, both homesteader and investor. Notwithstanding there is nothing particularly prodigal in our make up, we do not hesitate to affirm, that if only a lone 5-cent piece stood between our hungry insides and a nickel handout, we fear we would be tempted to squander the half dime on a copy of last week's Satur day Evening Post, just to read the article, "W. Wilson, Human Be ing," bv Samuel G. Blythe. And we have a sort of sneakin idea that we would feel the same way about it even if we were of the political faith of "our friends, the enemies." Thank heavens, this is still a free country, and a man can buy his goods wherever he pleases, but we know of two cases, where Glendive merchants who holler their heads off about people buying their goods out of town, calmly and without even blushing, tell us right to our face, that they get all their printing from out of town, because they can save a quarter or so. If we all thought that way, these same mer chants would no doubt soon be dig ging potatoes or working on the railroad again. The Real Yellow Peril The cry of the Yellow Peril, start ed after the admission into the Unit ed States of the first celestials short ly before the gold fever of '49. Al though the subject had attained some importance in Europe some centuries before, the greatest con cern has always been the fear of in vasion of Christian countries by Japs and Chinamen, due to their superior numbers and their religious fanaticism. This fear has, in the past few years, given way to a fear of their successful invasion of the active commerce of the extreme west, which seems to have some ba sis in fact. While we do not wish to see our national honor impugned by the vio lation of any treaty agreements, the whole people are a unit in wanting a more conservative clause in the trea ties, especially the one with Japan, so that the Japs will never be able to own an inch of American soil. The invasion of rich agricultural lands on the coast by these little brown-skinB, presents a serious pro blem to the state of California and one in which extreme diplomacy will be required in its solution. One phase of the question which has not been given the serious con sideration it deserves, is the well known moral debauchery of white girls, employed as waitresses, cash iers, dining room and kitchen help, by celestials. The situation has been nicely handled in Canada, since the pas sage of the new law forbidding the employment in any capacity of white girls by either Japs or Chinamen. The members of these races hard ly ever make what we call ''Good citizens," for by their prodigality in making money and their frugality in saving it, they can and do, success fully compete with the white man, in many lines of business. Not only that, but they have the knack of taking every cent back with them to their own country, where the possession of a few thou sand dollars, enables them to live the life of a nabob in a nation of serfs. If we really want to see American money stay at home where it be longs; if we really believe that the intermingling and intermarriage of whites with Jap and Chink to be against the laws of God as well as against the laws of the land; if we are really in earnest in our wish to uphold the honor and self-respect of American womankind; and if we really believe in the ties of blood relationship that bind one white race to another, then let us look to our laws and insist upon an early dis cussion of this subject by our legis lature, for it is to onr lawmakers that we must look for any satisfact ory measures of relief from this real menace, the new Yellow Peril. How Editors Get Rich After a great deal of worry and study we have at last figured out how so many country editors get rich. Here is the secret of their success. There is a child born in the neighborhood. The attending physician gets $10. The editor gives the loud-lunged youngster a great send-off and gets $0. It is christened, and the minister gets $5 and the edi tor gets $00. It grows and marries. The editor publishes another long winded flowery article and tells a dozen lies about "the beautiful and accomplished bride." The minister gets $10 and a piece of cake. The ed itor gets $000 and a request to car ry the groom's subscription account another year. In the course of time she dies. The doctor gets from $5 to $100, the minister gets from $5 to $100, the editor publishes a notice of death and an obituary two columns long, lodge resolutions, a lot of poetry and a card of thanks and gets $0,000. No wonder so many country editors get rich.—Ex change.

RAILROAD NEWS TOLD IN BRIEF Thousands of empty stock cars are moving west and many of them are being used to haul ties for new cut offs and curve straightenings along the line. It is reported that Great Northern coast-to-coast flyer that left Seattle at 7:10 Friday evening, arrived in Chicago at 9:10 the following Mon day night, on time to the very min ute. Eleven B & O R. R. laborers were killed instantly Monday morning by a fast east-bound passenger train near Camellsville, Pa. It is said the train hit them one at a time, mow ing them down like grass. So far this year, Montana has been especi ally fortunate in avoiding accidents of this kind. President Elliott's, "Efficiency First," must be bearing some fruit. Don't Grow Old "A woman is as old as she looks and a man is as old as he feels." ac cording to a time-honored saying. To this might be added the further statement that a citizen is as old as he acts. Every town and city, and our town is no exception, is unfor tunate in having a lot of people who have grown old before their time. Comparatively young in years, they seem to have lost interest in the town. Their civic pride is gone. They are useless members of the community. Don't grow old. If you find that you are beginning to think more of the things that happened five, ten and fifteen years ago than of the vital problems of today, then you are growing old. It is time to wake up. Take an interest in things. This is the Community to which you owe your success and enjoyment for years past; why not enlist in an ef fort for its betterment? Don't stag nate community ambition by grow ing old. Don't tell the young folks about the "good old days." This is the golden age of all time. Mingle with the younger people, take an interest in town development. Don't grow old.__ k * . t ® Correspondence. J Stipek Items Mrs. J. M.
