"Old Sad dle Bags" is :always talked of for sonmething bat never seems to get there of late ~-e:ars. ADn still we have no fire depart ment in G;reat Falls. Hias all the val or and patriotism van is,,ed frami our citizens. If this leth;argy continues there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. AS:T::1;; good man gone wrong. Bartholomnew the distinguished roper in of numerous Hartford suckers has fled, leaving a $2,000,000 monument in the shape of debts. Hurry up the extradition treaty before we lose all our bankers. TOOLE is gaining in strength every day in Northern Montana. Let no one be deceived in regard to his in terests. Toole is the man to repre sent Montana in congress. He is pledged to work for the development of this section of the country. He does not want to go to Washington as the attorney for any corporation. PnoF. MoTrsox has been authorized by the county commissioners of Meagher county to put up guide-posts at all the cross-roads in upper Sand coulee which are included in that county. This is an excellent idea and one worthy of emulation by our own commissioners. There are very few landmarks along most of the roads and consequently a traveller is quite apt to become bewildered in the midst of the labyrinth of coulees. We hope rhLt the next board will do something for Chotean county roads. FRAiK LESLIE'S Of last week has a very apt cartoon illustrating the treat ment of the bloody Geronimo by the United States. The savage has been run through all the various tonsorial ramifications and clothed in purple and fine linen. He is represented re clining in a hammock, with a cigar in his mouth and a bottle of "old rye" on a table conveniently near. Uncle Sam is his faithful attendant. Dress ed up in the style of a French waite. he stands by Geronimo's side fanning the old wretch who has murdered it cold blood so many of Uncle Sam's white wards who lie in unmarkec graves on the frontier. Under the picture is inscribed the legend, "Tirec of Murder.-A Siesta in Florida." POLITICAL PORRIDGE. LAsT Monday evening after young Mr. Craven had finished his ante Ial lum "reprint" speech Col. Sanders took the floor and entertained his hearers for two hours. While the ad dress was interesting on aeconat of the speaker's oratorical powers it was a great disappointment to the republic ans. His plea was based almost en tirely upon national issucs. NeverI had a candidate for popular favor a grander opportunitýy to put himself on record and win votes than did Col. Sanders last Monday evening. Never was there a more complete failure to grasp the situation. After listening attentively for an hour and forty -seven minutes to his discussion of the issues between the national ipari -, every one waited w.ih carnest, solicitation for the grand climax wh-n ihe old war horse would ste) out flat-footed and declare himself for N;,rtlern Mcn tans and its: great railroad interests. Then was his supreme m.Ipment to havey placed hi ealt in a position, to at least claim some of the votes of Great Falls. But he did not dare, in the face of his well hknown alliance with the X. P. to dwell upon the ail-absorb ing topic of interest to us. Hitherto we had been inclined to the belief that his insulting reference to J. J. Hill, our great patron, at the recent mem orable banquet in Helena. was the re suit of an ill-advis:ed attempt at face tiousness. But now we can see that it was a uremeditated, deliberate at te'mpt to belittle the great railroad magnate. Not once during Col. San ders' speech here the other evening did he rcfer to the Manitoba i. 1'., nor to IJr. Hi!l. It seems strange that a person as anxious for offce as Sanders is, cannot smother his vindic tive spirit even during the campaign. It only goes further to show that if by any misfortune, he should happen to be sent to Washington he would take that opportunity to favor his par ticular friends and pay oil all his old grcdg es against those rwho have at any time been conscientiously opposed to him. or who have ever been in com petition with his great cpoporation client. Of course Sanders had to make a few spiteful flings at the TRIBUNE be cause it happens to be advocating Toole's election. We are in favor of the latter first, last and all the time because we conscientiously believe that he can do more for the interests of Great Falls and Northern , ontana, than. anyone else. The TRIBU. E dislikes to engage in any personal flings and has carefully endeavored to do justice to friends and foes alike. But any candidate who believes that when he smites us on the one cheek, we will turn to him the other also, is sadly off on his rec koning. ** Sanders sarcastically referred to the TmIBUSE as "Gov. Houser's paper." None of those connected with the TRIBUNE are acquainted with Mr. Houser. He does not own a dollar of stock in this paper, has never paid it a cent and (we are sorry the Gov's ed ucation is so sadly neglected) is not even a subscriber to this paper. ** A sample of Sander's arguments, is this one: "I like to see a man stand firm for his convictions no matter what opposition he meets. Cleveland stood by his convictions in vetoing bills passed by congress. Hence the theorem: you shouldn't vote for Toole." Another one was about as follows: Sparks is a crank etc., opposed to the interests of Montana. Ira Myers is in favor of Joe Toole, therefore Ira is not entitled to even a piece of bark, unless it may be the bark of a prairie dog, to saw up in his mill. Very few geniuses could pun in the midst of such a logical deduction as tat. ** Those who have been in the Terri torial Legislature with Col. Sanders say that he was always ready to jump to his feet andspeak on any subject, r but that he was no earthly good in committee work. One gentleman said that he wouldn't put in an hours work with the committee in a month. Sees the Republican Mistake. Out of 22 men- arrested by the :N. P. Coal company at Timberline, on changes of intimidation, carrying and flourishing deadly weapons, etc., all were discharge' a on the preliminary hearing except four 1 earnan, M[addea, Crissop and Taylor rs These were held to appear before t h, grand jury, and it is doubtful whether: is true bill will be found against any one o I- them. So much in regard to the intimit ation business, and the efforts of the N P. Coal comnpany tob tnancially ruin Gal !s latin county.-hoze l. n.~i,'. c- .e regard Col. Sanders' legil and! pro fess"onal connectiou with tie NoitiherI P aciic Coal company as the .most serio)l r drawback to his can.lidacr at tee pL:'sac a t*ime.- 'znta C(J-ic,. The foregoing from a staunch re hr publican paper like the Courier i: to strong evidence of the disaffectior wihch exists in the republican ranks 5I aj. Alderson with strict impartialiti discerns the weakness of Col. Sander, as candidate for delegate to Congress n He did all he could to prevent the nom1ina'ion and now feels that h: d must stand by the result of the con vention. But the 2Major candidly ad nmits that Sanders cannot be electeo "eaectse of his un:avory connaectio with the unjust N. P. Coal company at As agent, attorney and confidentia t, adviser of that corx)ration Col. Sanu d ers is responsible for the Timberlin( troubles. There are few cases o: to greater tyranny than that exerciseL at by the powerful N. P. Coal compa.n3 over the poor, defenseless laborer: _whom its officers thought they ha, under their heels. Te THE enthusiasm of Northern Mon aL tana people for Toole is simply tun - bounded. Saturday evening a grant °`x gathering of the clans will take pllact in honor of Collins, Tattan and Buck g It will be a praise :meeting worth at tending. is Co:-: :, ss::iat Abram S. Hewitt de c- clines to go back io congress. His n absence will create a great vaconcy if in his party's forces. Struck i Rock.

The Canadian T ber Depredations. For some time t Canadian lumber men, it is alleged, yve,made a business of systematically rying timber from the United States t he Northwest Terri tory. The St. Mar lake district, south of the forty-ninth allel in Montana, has most suffered fro these depredations. Millions of feet of he choicest lumber has been cut and fi ted down Belly river to Lethbridge, w re it is sawed up. Over four hundre borers were engaged in this work all aI inter and men are being engaged f similar work this winter. A House Divi d against Itself. BUTTE, Sept. .--Early in August Thomas Moore fe ully-beat his wife at a Butte lodging . use, was fined $100 and was jailed est 19th. He broke jail and escaped a was'not seen till to day, when he ret to finish killing his wife, first ertaken in August. The wife liveson izona street. To-day he walked in and n clubbing his wife. Dr. Goodwin, ne door, heard the up roar, went in and arated them, the man cursing and howl , the woman scream. ing, children join in the rumpus The doctor found bot Ife and husband covy ered with cuts, b and blood, and a little boy six ye ld with leg broken in the melee. Ma Jolly arrived and took Moore to a in. Mrs. Moore Li THE OBSERVER. A few days ago I overheard a man who pretends to be something of a politician state publicly that if he had an opportuni ty to take money from the coffers of Un cle Sam without being detected, he would n't hesitate a moment. He said that was n't stealing, because whatever be - long to tlhe government was public and subject to l:e plundlred by the shrewdest man that gt insidie lir- ring. I would not trust that men with any business of mine. lie would be pretty apt to carry Socialistic ide.1s into all his dealings with his fellow men. With such inen as that avowed thief in of.ice, our govermnent would soon be reduced to anarchy. The same flag iloats over the just and un just alike in this country. The beautiful one which fair hands made for the cele bration of our Glorious Fourth, waved a welcome to J. K. Toole and Wilbur F. S::nders from the balcony of the Park ho tel. I remember once of reai:.ng about an invention something after the phonograph, by means of which speeches could be bot tied and and served up not only with the same words, but with the exact tone of voice, and inflections as originally delivered. I think that young Mr. Craven must have gone to his side-board in the dark and un corked the wrong bottle. The one he tap ped for the other evening was marked "Speech delivered by a bIackwoods iel)ub lican in 1Pi60." Some bottled goods im prove with age but this was a back numn her which tasted rather stale. I am pleased to learn the extremely f'a voralb!e comnuments which all guests of the Park make concerning their entertainment. I have yet to hear a complaint. There is - not a better hotel in Montana. Its table is i.adoned with all the delicacies which this market affords. It is no small undertak ing to eater satisfactorily for a hotel so far removed from a railroad. I amn daily in receipt of letters of inqui ry about Great Falls. It is wo'od ~efultc what a world-wide reputation this town is win ningu. (out.-flting point lfr sportsmen in the :west. Alreadv hunting and fishing I:rties ar" scouring, the country and drn the stre:-n- fir ''one and fish. 'h;y all re turn <i :ied with their recreation and vo' th::. th v will come every s:eason here: - tter. I took a drive down to the Sulphur springs on the other side of the river, a few days .e'o and found a, regular sulphur Sr:mich a short di:jstance this side of the well known springs. For about a quarter of a mile along the river, water strolngly im iupr'gnated with sulphur oozes out of the high rocky bank. One can tap a sulphur vein with a pen-knife almost anywhere aliong there. While climbing about the rocks we r:n into a large cave formed by the over-hanging ledge and almost clos ed in front by the sediment thrown up by the rushing river in times of high water. This must be the place where the gallant young Indian lover carried away the dusky maiden to whom lie was clandestinely be trothed. The legend recites that owing to tribal hostilities the alliance was stren uously opposed by the patriarchs. I But love laughs at patriarchs as well as at prison walls. The young warrior knew of this "mystic cave" which was not dis closed to the other noble reds. The water of the river flowed along past what was ap parently a solid wall. But the lover had r accidently discovered that the floor of this - cavern was above the level of the water. So he takes his willing bride in a canoe and when he arrives at the point where he knows the cave to be, he grasps bride, dives into the water and swims under into the cave where he made his happy abiding place for many moons. This of course took place when the water was high. Selah. The Young Men's Democratic Club. r One of the patent influences in the cam paign is the Young Men's Democratic 1 club of this town.

This is supplemented with an outside committee consisting of Messrs Blanken a. baker, Wilson and Ain. The club makes its headquarters at the a brick building recently occupied by Spitz ley & Ringwald, the use of the same be r- eing kindly donated by Mr. Paris Gibson. a Last Saturdaiy evening the club met and Slaid out their plan of action. A constita is tion and by-laws for the govermnet of the association were framed and adopted. There are already about fifty members ant nearly as many more have signified their desire to join. Excellent work may beex pected from the energetic members of this club, who propose to do all in their power to elect the ticket which will most benefit Northern Montana. Money has freely been contributed by the enthusiastic mem bers of the club to defray all necessary ex penses. Let the good work go on. A Rattling Crop. A.
