Why You Should Buy Exposition Dollars v
We regret to see some criticism in a few pes
simistic newspapers, of the method employed
by the Montana committee in raising funds for
the big Montana Building at the Panama
Pacific Exposition by the public sale of ex
position souvenirs at one dollar each.
One feature in favor of this method of rais
ing the money is the fact that the price of
these handsome bronze specially cast medals
is so low that every man, woman and child can
well afford to buy one and get "value receiv
ed" in the life-time possession of a momento
of what will no doubt prove to be the greatest
world's fair in the history of the world.
Nearly every state in the country has made
an appropriation for its state building at the
exposition, which would make it merely a sort
of contract between the state and the exposi
Montana, by the popular sale of these one
dollar souvenirs to all the people, is asking all
its people to join in a suitable representation
of their state, and instead of being a cut-and
dried affair, it becomes a matter of personal
and individual concern to each and every one
You cannot make a mistake by investing a
dollar in one of these handsome pocket pieces,
for no matter how humble a man may think
himself, he is a part and parcel of this great
state and he shares, even if indirectly, in its
prosperity quite as much as he does in the ex
penses of government by the payment of his
Hundreds of thousands of foreigners are
expected as visitors to our shores on account
of this exposition and as many of these men
and women will no doubt be attracted to the
United States as a place of residence it well
becomes us all to see that we do our honest
share in presenting Montana's greatness to
them in the most attractive manner and by
so doing attract to the Treasure state many
valuable citizens who otherwise might be in
duced to cast their fortunes with less prosper
ous and less wealthy and less efficiently gov
erned sister states.
Don't wait until someone asks you to buy
one of the souvenirs, but just call at any of the
banks, produce a dollar in currency or any
negotiable paper and you will be handed a
beautiful bronze coin that after you give it
the "once over" you will be ashamed NOT to
Help The Homesteader
One of the most important movements that
has been in the political limelight for sometime
past, designed to help the Homesteader, was
given its initial public impetus when the
Helena Commercial Club, on April 22nd, thru
one of its prominent members, George L. Ram
sey of Helena, introduced resolutions which
were unanimously adopted, having in view
the reduction of time that now elapses between
the time of making final proof and the actual
granting of the patent.
The resolution sets out that "whereas thous
ands of our best citizens are annually taking
advantage of our homestead laws, it has been
demonstrated that the Register's Final Certi
ficate issued after final proof is of no value
whatever as an evidence of title, and inasmuch
as it is at least six months, and often longer,
before patent is issued, the Homesteader is put
to great inconvenience and hardship because
the majority of our Homesteaders are of small
means and require financial assistance to tide
them over until their farm is on a paying
The resolution concludes with the following
"That we respectfully call the attention of
the Honorable Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of
the Interior, and the Honorable Clay Tallman,
Commissioner of the General Land Office, to
the conditions existing in the Public Land
States, respecting the initiation of Title from
the United States, and most earnestly request
and urge that such rules and regulations be
adopted, as soon as possible, by the Depart
ment of the Interior to insure the issuance of
patents to our Homesteaders, without unneces
sary delay, thereby doing away with much of
the dissatisfaction that now exists among our
settlers. ' '
Taken up in this way, the movement is sure
to result in something actually done for the
Homesteader. The Banks are willing to help
because m the present Homesteader they see
the future prosperous farmer, but they cannot
be blamed for failing to lend 6ut their deposi
tors money on a certificate that has utterly
fgiled to subserve the purpose for which it has
intended. ? •
Bankers Commend Wilson
Under the above caption the Helena Indepen
dent in Monday's issue, submits to its readers
an editorial quoting an extract from The
American Banker, one of the principal publi
cations of the banking interests in the United
States, that, gives in clear and unmistakable
terms the high regard in which President Wil
son is held by the big financial interests of the
country and commends the appointments made
by him for the federal reserve board as well
as approving in unqualified terms the general
purpose of the new banking system.
The Banker especially approves of the action
of the President in making the reserve board
a non-partisan organization with only one
thing in view, i. e., efficiency. Says the
"The former apprehension that the federal
reserve board would be dominated by politici
ans, who would have no acquaintance with fin
ancial affairs is thus entirely dispelled. Un
der the control of a board like this, it may be
confidently expected that the new financial
system will be administered wisely and effici
ently, and that when the change affected by
the currency law has been consummated, the
financial, commercial and industrial interests
of the United States will flourish and prosper
to an extent not known before in the history
of the United States. This is a strong predic
tion to make, but it is based upon the fact that
the new financial system is as great an im
provement over that deviced by Salmon P.
Chase in 1862, as the work of that eminent
jurist and financier was an advance upon the
wild cat and red dog currency of the days be
fore the civil war.
The Modem Newspaper
In this modem day and age of labor saving
machinery and efficient management and be
cause of the. keen competition which results
from the adoption of these modem theories
and practices in the commercial life of the na
tion, the man or the business that is willing to
"stand still" has the doubtful pleasure of see
ing his competitive "friend the enemy" pass
him on the road to success, leaving only the
dust to painfully remind him of the passage.
In the large cities many colossal fortunes
have been made, and paradox though it be,
quite a few r have been lost, by newspapers in
a sort of mad rush to not only keep abreast of
the times in their equipment and organization,
but ahead of them.
That the city newspapers were able thus to
equip their plants with all the latest mechan
ical devices, while the country papers were us
ing old style machinery, is just another illus
tration of the truth of the old adage that "Bus
iness is Business", one that the country printer
was slow to fully appreciate.
Nowadays no newspaper office is consider
ed to be completely equipped unless it has its
Linotype, its typesetting machine.
Realizing the obligation that it owes its
subscribers and its advertisers, the Yellow
stone Monitor has fallen in line with the
spirit of the times, and has just installed one of
the latest and best models of the Mergenthaler
Linotype machines, with the object plainly in
view of giving a better printing service and
a brighter, newsier and a more up-to-the-min
ute newspaper, one that you can read every
week with the satisfaction of knowing that
you have gotten all the news.
If Satisfied, Why Change?
In the olden days, before the voters leamec
how to do their own thinking and voting, it
often happened that holders of political offices
won re-election by either speaking publicly
or writing for a subsidized press large masses
of words, collected and grouped together in
a manner best calculated to pull the wool over
the eyes of their gullible henchman.
In voting for new candidates for office there
still remains that eternal question of un-de
monstrated fitness, but after serving a term of
office, if he is re-elected it is because he has
proved himself to be what the voters were hop
ing him to be when they cast their votes for
So therefore, on the basis of pledges ful
filled and actual results accomplished, men go
to the polls at the coming election and by
voting for such constructionists as Stewart,
Meyers, Walsh, Stout and Evans, demonstrate
their belief in the brand of modem stateman
ships that these gentlemen, representing De
mocracy, have been educating us up to.
The slogan that should forever be before
your mind's eye, no matter what your personal
politics may be, should be: "As long as the
present incumbents are giving us what we
want, why change?"
There is just one thing we wish to say editor
ially anent the subject of the recent election
which carried in favor of the establishment of
Richland county, and that is this: The state
representatives that framed the county divi
sion laws which governed the present election
were wise men, and the law they framed was a
wise law, and the reason is that this being a
free country it is fit and proper that every man
should have a voice in every public matter that
concerns him, and so being put directly up to
the people, no one has any kick coming. The
men who voted for county division as a nectar
willlave the pleasure of drinking the nectar
while those who voted against it will be put
the diéaftMNMMe task of taking someone
