'he notire says our criticism or Mr.
Thompson's management of the schools
was bad. This statement contains a false
hood. which is the worse by b inging in
the name of one who cannot answer. On
January 7th, S. O. Warden, the editor of
the Rolfe, went east. Next morning Mr.
Thompson announced that he had taken
charge of the paper. On this same date
it is remembered that school was dis
missed on account of a break in one of
the pipes of the boiler. At various times
since January 7 the pedagogue editor has
referred to his inexperence as an apology
for the scarcity of news items. To draw
on public sympathy, Mr. Thompson cites
the death of Mr. Lollis as the causeof his
(Thompson's) taking charge of the Rolfe,
when, according to his own statements,
he had been managing the paper for 18
days before that sad occurrence.
It is hard to understand why the
"Prof." should be called on to do this
work. Suppose the manager of any of
our business houses were to go east or die,
would Thompson feel called on to go in
and run the business? Does he wish to
usurp the office of public administrator?
Any sane person knows that a thorough
conscientious teacher who does his duty
has no time for outside work, and very
little time for recreation. The "Prof."
may be a wonderful man, but we don't
believe he can properly conduct the
schools and edit a paper, and his resigna
tion for one of the positions would be
thankfully awaited by a large number of
The TRIUNE is is in avor of free public
schools, but it wants to see them managed
by men who have the interests of the
children at heart. It does not believe in
making the positions in tihepublic schools
merely sinecures for favorites and rela
tives. We should have as our teachers
men and women who are independent,
who are not afraid to call their souls their
own, who are competent and experienced,
if possible, but if we cannot get exper
ienced teachers let us have a man who
will devote his time to that service for
which he is paid.
HELENA blows her own horn well in
asking congress for a public building.
She also embodies a good word for Mon
tana, which we reproduce: "Whereas,
Montana occupies an area mi the United

IT is among the secrets of the juryroom
that one of the grand jurors supposed
that Foreman Ellis wa~ a democrlt.
When Milligan had heard read some
strictures on republican ex-officlds he
said that is very strong; now we must
give the democrats a lick. Accordingly
party spirit made itself felt anail the grand
jurymnen "sloshed" around hitting such
herds as they saw fit In their final report.

THE JOURNAL WINCES.
The Helena Journal displays very sus
picious indignation in denying that it has
aided and abetted one Davies in throwing ,
doubt on titles In Helena ahd elsewhere.
The Journal may delude the public at
large by beating the gong, but there are
ear marks known to the journalistic and
real estate business which are unmis
We assert that the Journal has been
in complicity with Davies and cite as
proof the following facts:
I. It published on Sunday last on its
editorial page, under the head of "Im
portant Decisions," the "Arkansas Rul
ings and General Garland's opinion." As
preamble it said:
"In view of the fact that a great deal
of Montana property may be affected by
the rulings under which Mr. Davies ao
quired title to lands in Boyce addition,
the ruling is given in full and the opin
lon of ex-Attorney General Garland."
This article was an advertisement for
Davies and a threat to property holders.
It was false in declaring that "Dayles
acquired title to lands in Boyce addition
under it." We do not know what pay the
Journal received, but the publication was
as much an advertisement as if it had
devoted a column to Smith, Jones & Co.'s
11. On another page in the same pa
per the Journal publishes an article near.
ly a column long, an interview with
Davies and other details, all so framed as
to deceive the public, alarm property
owners and give some color to Davies'
"claims." This article is all the more
criminal and insidious because it is in the
guise of news and pretends to be fair.
In this article the Journal says:
"There is now no question but whatthe
titles of thousands of acres in Montana
are affected in exactly the same way and
liable to the same process as the lands
acquired by Mr. Davies. The law on the
matter is very clear, so say the lawyers."
This is a downright falsehood, well
planned, to aid Davies' little game. The
voice and the words are as unmistakeable
as those of the bunco-steerer. Life is too
short to analyse the article further.
Moreover, it would be foolish to give
Davies any more notoriety or importance.
We leave the matter to the reputable real
estate dealers of Helena. Let the Jour
nal, which professes to be friendly to
their interests,ask their opinion of its con
Fuoa all over the state come compli
mentary notices of the TRIBUNE ANNsuL.
The Montana press takes common pride
in this publication, which was written at
home and printed at home. The infor.
mation the ANNUAL gives is likewise
creditable to the state, for it tells of a
general advance all along the line in Cas
cade county. We reprint from the Red
Lodge Picket this friendly notice: "The
annual number of the Great Falls TIta
uNr, ten thousand strong, is a marvel of
typographical neatness and in western
parlance is a four-timewinner. Itstwen
ty pages are interspersed with literary
nuggets giving a pen picture of the great
town of Great Falls and the diversified
resources of Cascade county. The pretty
illustrations of their different business
houses loom up like the smile of a Ches
shire cat on a moonlight night in the
springtime. Jerry Collins must have let
his Irish soul flow into this edition, be
cause the Tar.cuN ANNUAL eclipses
every holiday edition of the season."
THE Leader says: "The new bell for
the high school arrived Tuesday and
will be 'Ihung' as soon as Prof. Thomp
son can get time, between his duties as
editor of the Leader and hours of boss.
ing the school-to hunt up a carpenter
and blacksmith to do the necessary work
of hanging." Now tlhat Rolfe is hack,
Prof. Thompsson ought not be expected
to do editorial work while lie has public
duties to attend to as principal of the
school. If Rolfe imposes -.uch duties
Prof. Thompson should protest. lie is
not expected to work for the. school and
run a paper at the slulne time, as he ihats
been for some weeksh, much to the detri
ment of our schools.

The decision of the supreme court will
not give Sanders a clear title nor strength
en his claim in the opinion of honest
That decision affirms that the state can
vassing board had authority to issue cer
tificates to representatives as well as to
other state officers.
This so-called right might be conceded
by the democrats without weakening
their impregnable case. The house-the
regular house-has met and organized.
It is thg sole jude of the qualifications of
its own members. It admitted the five
democratic members from Silver Bow. It
cannot and will not reverse its action to
adapt itself to the rulings of a partisan
court, which has no jurisdiction over it.
We contend and will always contend
that no one can acquire a clear title to
office who has not received a majority of
the votes cast at an election. We hold that
a title based on such majority is sound
and unimpeachable. It cannot be set
aside by the president, the supreme court
of the United States orany known au
thority. That title is so essentially just
and honest that no power can rightfully
nullify it. It derives its validityfrom the
constitution and from that "higher law"
based upon man's inherent sense of jus
tice and right. No certificate can law
fully destroy its force, for the people
have wisely placed the sacred right to
elect representatives and state officers by
a majority, above the jurisdiction of can
vassing boards and supreme courts.
The simple facts must be borne in
mind that on the 1st of October an elec
tion was held in Silver Bow county; that
the five democratic representatives re
ceived a majority of the votes casttherest
and were duiny elected. Two members of
the county canvassing board-Jack and
Hall-unjustly rejected the votes cast at
Precinct 84, thereby depriving the five
members of their lawful majority, but in
a test case the votes were declared valid
by Judge DeWolfe and in obedience to
his orders the canvassers did recount the
votes and Include those of Precinct 84.
The board of state canvassers composed
of Blake, White and Walker subsequent
ly "canvassed" the votes from Silver
Bow. They had the full returns from
that county before them, but in order to
rob the democratic representatives of
their rights, they "eliminated," that is,
stole from the Silver Bow returns the
votes cast at Precinct 84 and issued cer
tificates to five republican representatives
who did not receive a majority of the
votes lawfully cast at that election.
In the face of such facts all the certifi
cates that Sanders can obtain from par
tisan courts will not deceive the people
nor wash the brand of fraud from his
In common with democrats, most re
publicans revere the courts, but they
gloried in defying and nullifying the
fugitive slave law, although it received
the sanction of the highest courts. Such
republicans will understand why demo
crats despise all the false certificates
which Sanders obtains from his pliant
The Title Shark.
Davies, the Arkansas carpet-bagger and
title shark, has so far filed papers for but
one of the three pieces of Helena proper
ty alleged to be exposed to the operations
of his ilk-the Boyce addition. So far as
known he has hoodoed but one owner In
to buying him off. What schemes he may
be incubating can only be surmised, but
it is a safe guess that his machinations
will not make him a COroses.-Helena

A MINNEAPOLIS 8BNBATION.
Minneapolis has always some great sen
sation. It is now all tore up about the
death bed confession of a Judge Hollis,
who admitted that he and a prominent
physician, who has since left town, were
engaged In a regular system of mal
practice. The judge shielded the doctor,
who in turn divided his devilish game
The story Is thus told by the Times:
One day last fall the judge was taken
suddenly ill, and while suffering from
pain and delirium the terrible secret es
caped him. It fell upon the ears of those
around his bedside like athunderbolt,and
at first they begarded it as simply the rav
ings of a man rendered temporarily in
sane by pain.
As the dying man grew worse his bur
den of sin seemed to weigh more heavily
upon his mind, and he continually cried
out that he could not stand the groans and
shrieks of "Annie" any longer. He im
agined himself in the room where the
woman was undergoing the torture, and
the dying cries of the poor creature rang
in his ears until the expression on his
face was frightful to witness. Thenagain
he imagined himself standing beside the
woman after she had died, died under
the instruments of the physician, and his
shrieks and appeals for mercy will never
be forgotten by those who witnessed the
One evening, a short time before he
died, he was quite calm and asked the at
tendant to call several of his intimate
friends, as he was afraid to go before his
maker with his terrible secret dragging
his soul down to perdition. The secret
was gnawing at his heart, he said, and he
must tell it. He knew he had but a few
hours to live, he said, and he therefore
wanted the persons he mentioned, sum
moned with all speed. They came, and
there, on his deathbed. the lawyer recited
the entire story, giving all the details, and
stating that the person he had seen die
was a girl named -"Annie," who had sign
ed the affidavit, which was to shield the
physician, and had then submitted to the
operation, the torture of which killed
Half an hour after making the confes
sion, which seemed to ease his mind, the
lawyer passed away. The confession is
said, by those who heard it, to have been
simply terrible, and to show that, under
the guise of a respectable physician, one
of the many doctors of Minneapolis has
been engaged in a wholesale slaughter of
the babes yet unborn, and in some cases
the mothers. The persons who were
present when the confession was made
will, no doubt, soon be called upon to tell
all that was said at the dying man's bed
