Yellowst one Monitor.
Published at Glendive, Dawson County. Montana
by E. A. MARTIN.
Entered as second-class matter March 3, 1906,
4M the postoffice at Glendive, Mont., under the
Act of Congress of March 8. 1879.
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
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
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

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
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.__
