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."
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
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
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
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.

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,

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

I took a drive down to the 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.

a Last Saturdaiy evening the club met and
Slaid out their plan of action. A constita
