For Congressman,
For State Senator for Cascade County,
Thus far the Leader has only replied to
the attacks of the TRIBUNE. We have
been patient almost beyond endurance,
but we do not belong to that class of re
publicans who are owned by the First
ational bank and Townsite company
and we will not be bullied or intimidated.
A republican wishes us to "pitch into"
the mugwump followers of Paris Gibson
who claim to be republicans; who have
held office as republicans and yet are
secretly working for Paris Gibson and for
a democratic United States senator. We
will not do this until we have proof. If
there is a republican so low, so mean, so
destitute of all principle as to adopt a
course like this he may never expect
anything from the republican party here
It is reported from different parts of
of the state that republican registry
agents are refusing to register the names
of men who are not full citizens but oh
tamned their first papers prior to the elec
tion last fall.
On this point the constitution is clear
and an opinion on the subject has been
rendered by Attorney General Haskell at
firming the right of persons who took out
their first papers on or before October 1,
1889, to have their names registered and
to vote. The exact language of the at
torney general is:
The provisions of the section being
mandatory, it limits the right of suffrage
to those who are citizens of the United
States; provided, however, that all per
sons who have declared their intention to
become a citizen prior to the adoption of
the constitution, namely, October 1, 1889,
shall have the right of suffrage, but this
right Is curtailed after tie expiration of
five years after the time of the adoption
of the constitution.
Referring to this subject the iutte
Miner says: "This is a matter of too
much importance to be overlooked by
the voters or the authorities. It is evi
dent that the republican boards through
out the state have entered upon a scheme
to disfranchise the foreign born citizens,
and the fact that they have been turning
them away in open defiance of the law is
sufficient to place every man on his guard,
to awaken democrats to a realization of
the fact that they are dealing with the
same men who stole the state a year ago,
and to spur the authorities to vigilance
and patriotic effort."
Another method of annoying the voter
with probably the view of disfranchising
him, is to refuse to register his name
when his naturalization papers are de
stroyed, lost or "not at hand for the time
being-" In either case the applicant, by
making the proper affidavit, is entitled to
have his name entered on the list. We
regret to learn that one of the registry
reents of this city has refused to register
voters who offered to make oath that
their papers were not here and "not at
hanud for the time being," as expressed
by the law. In so doing the agent is vio
lating his oath and the duties of his office,
and he is likely to be called up on a very
short turn.
As will be seen by an announcement in
our local columns the Library association
of this city is about to erect a handsome
building on their lot on First avenue
North, which will be for the exclusive
use of the association. That terrible cor
poration known as the Townsite company
donated last year a lot on First avenue
North to the Library assoclation and It is
worth today at least $4,000.
Another church was organized in the
city yesterday under very favorable cir
cumstances and when the members are
ready to proceed with the erection of an
edifice of their own, they own a~desirable
lot upon which to build it. This lot-as
well as lots to all the other denomina
tions represented here-was also donated
by the "close corporation" known as the
l',awnsite company. This same corpora
tion has donated ground for school pur
poses, has dedicated parks to the city and
secured and fostered all the great enter
prises that have been isstrumental in
making a city of Great Falls. What an
_nstrument of oppression and evil it ap
oears to bet
T'E "roasting" received by Commis
sioner itaum from the minority of the in
vestigating committee was fully deserved,
::s any unbiaced person who had follow
ed the evidence brought out by the corn
mitt,. must admit. Raum ought to be
given an opportunity to devote his whole
time to the Refrigerator company,
Demagogism is the stock in trade of
the opposition, especially as represented tl
by the Great Falls Leader, The latest b
evidence of this Is the fact that the wages It
paid at the dam is introduced as a reason c
why Mr. Gibson should not be elected. 'I
Now as a matter of fact Mr. Gibson has e
nothing whatever to do with the manage- a
ment of that enterprise. It Is wholly un- It
der the charge of Engineer Fanning and tI
the local engineer. They submitted a
plans and specifications, which were ac- o
cepted and they proceeded to carry out b
lhe enterprise. So far as we know the s
the relations between the employers
and employes on that work a
have been entirely satisfactory. They a
have a scale of wages and have had at all a
times a full compleimentof men. There
have been no strikes and the treatment I
accorded the men has notbeen complain- c
ed of, so far as we know. But in any (
event, Mr.Gibson is in no way responsible
for tile wages paid there, whether they are
idgh ior low, because hIe his no voice ino he I
matter and has never been consulted or (
ldvisedi with in relation thereto. Nobiody
kinows this better than II. P. Rolfe and
Ilhe other demagogues who are seeking to
manke capital on the subject.
As convincing evidence of the fact tlat
thre republicans are very short of
campaign material, note the demagogical
cry of the organ in regard to Mr. Gibson's
:onnection with the Townsite company.
'his is the only refrain we hear, but as
yet no one has attempted to show how
that connection in the least disqualifies
him to be state senator or would result in
the slightest detriment to Cascade county
in case of his election. Mr. Gibson is a
man of the highest qualifications for this
position. He has the ability and influ
ence and tact to accomplish the
greatest possible good for Great Falls
and Cascade county. His large interests
here and hiis love for the city he has
founded will prompt him to the greatest
possible efforts in that direction. So far
as securing favorable legislation, this is
the critical period and no greater mistake
could be made by our people than to de
feet the man who has so much at stake
and whose heart and soul are in the work
of advancing every interest of this city
and county. The "corporatiou" cry will
not encompass that result because the
people cannot be so easily deceived or
e blinded to their own welfare.
THE completion of the Great Falls &
Canada railroad, as recorded in our local
. columns today, is a event of more than
ordinary importance to this city in par
ticular and to Montana and Alberta in
a general. It makes tributary to G eat Falls
r an extensive and productive region and
gives to this state a new fuel supply from
mines that are practically inexhaustible,
furnishing coal of a good quality. The
t first train of coal will come over the new
road tomorrow and after a short time.
when the road is, put in good shape,
these shipments will be very large and of
daily occurrence. About the 15th of the
f present month, through the courtesy of
r the officers of the Great Falls & Canada,
Sa number of invited guests from this city,
Helena and Butte will be tendered an ex
cursion to Lethlbridge, the Canadian ter
r W would suggest to the republican
state committee that In arranging Carter's
appointments this month they should not
fail to give him full scope in northern
Montana. He should speak in Choteau,
Dupuyer, Belt, Stanford, Utica and other
sheep raising centers where the wool
grower who listened to his promises of
high prices for their product last year,
Sare anxious to have him explain why
wool is now six cents a pound lower than
it was then. If this was the result of
Carter's election, or of the assurance of a
higher tariff on wool by a republican
congress, it is likely the woolgrowers
will be a little cautious about aiding in
his re election.
A VOTE for Paris Gibson on the 4th
of November is a nail driven in the cof
fin of organized labor.--Leader.
Could anything be cheekier than this?
Mr. Gibson has been a constant employer
of labor and the workingmen have not
a stancher friend in this town or county
than he. His theory is that Great Falls
as the coming metropolis of the north
west is to be founded on labor and fol
lowing that view he is unceasing in his
efforts to establish here great mounfac
turing enterprises that will make Great
Fails the labor center of Montana and
this entire region a very hive of in
dustry. Never hasut a laboring man had
a grievance against Mr. Gibson and the
Leader will not flid it as easy as it im
agines to mislead anyone.
TthE action of Howard Crosby, the ( f
flcious county clerk, tn excludin" a TIt
UUNE reporter from the republican meet
ing--a meeting that was public and ap
parently open to all-meets with univer
sal condemnation, If this action was
taken upon the advice and con
sent of the officers and members of
the republican club, it shows they are
afraid to have their con'suct and opinions
presented to public it -st and as a speci
men of narrow mindedness and bigotry
it would be hard to excel. We are inclined
to think, however, that Crosby took it up
on himself to play this officious and un
gentlem-suly part, He is apparently de
sarous of making a reputation as a bull
dozer and b a-d man and has successfully
started on that delectable career.
PtaESIDENn HARtRIsON has such a deep
and undying regard for the laboring man
that he permitted, against the protests of
federation of labor representatives, the
white house to be painted by non-union
workmen. The contractor had the union
committee driven from the grounds by
white house policemen ank was success
ful in resisting the efforts of the union
men to have the "scabs" cease work. This
is rather a remarkable state of affairs at
the president's mansion.
TI'E especial love of Carter and the
admiinistrattion for the wool-growers iv

drive the sleeipmen from the reservation.
Mr John Kenwn, the worthy post
master at Kesown, Allegheny county,
Penn., says: "Cbamberlsiu's Cough
Remedy sells better than any other."
The reason of this is because it can at
ways be depended upon. Let any one
troubled with a severe cold give it a trial
and they will find that the first dose will
relieve the lungs and make breathinug
easier, and that its continued use will
free the system of oil symptoms of the
cold. The promptness and certainty of
this remedy in the relief and cure of
colds, has won for it many sincere friends
and made it very popular. For sale by

Congress has adjourned and the coun
try has cause to rejoice tlereat. It has t
been a most remarkable session and one a
that should stand as a guarantee of a dem
ocratic victory in the fall elections d
This congress, republican in both branch
es, found a large surplus in the treasury,
a legacy left by the democratic adminis t
tration, but one term of republican ex- n
travagance was sufficicent to dissipate it
and a deficit of $50,000,000 stands in place t
of the surpluson the treasury department a
books. This is one of the beneficent re
sults of the session just closed.
The speaker of the house assumed al- I
most absolute control of the proceedings u
of that body and wielded it to suithisown u
sweet will. To accomplish this end par- I
liamentary law was outraged and the t
precedents of centuries overthrown. N ,
congress since the foundation of the gov
ernment was so completely in the power
of one man, who ruled with an iron hand.
The senate passed a free coinage silver
bill and the sentiment of the house was
clearly in itsj favor. The democratts
stooda unit for it and a number of west
cru0 republicans were with them. But
Ieed said the bill must not pass and it
did not. It should not be forgotten in
this connection that T'. H. Carter voted
for Reed for speaker and used all the in
Iluence he could command to promote
this well-known enemy of silver to the
speaker's chair. A share of the respon
aibility, therefore, for the defeat of the
free coinage silver bill rests with Mr.
The McKinley tariff bill Is another
progeny of this congress. It is in the
line of all former republican legislation
,n this subject, favorable to trusts and
wealthy manufacturers-the source of
the chief contributions to the republican
campaign fund-and against the inter
ests of the farmer and people generally.
At the dictation of Reed and McKinley,
even the binding twine trust was upheld.
The Lodge election bill, more appro
r priately known as the force bill, had its
origin in this congress and the fact that
it passed even one branch should suffice
to condemn the party in control.
In the house the republican majority
was exceeding small and inorderto swell
Sit to a safe number, several democrats
were unseated and republicans who had
Sbeen defeated before the people, put in
r their places. This programme was car
ried out until it was deemed that a safe
i majority was secured.
1l What else congress has done as of no
great consequence for either good or evil.
rhe chief aim of the majority was to ad
n vance the interests of the party and spend
the surplus. The latter was done in a
Ssabort time, but we doubt if the former
end was gained, The petople will have a
voice in determining that matter this
A. J. Seligman, one of the chief cono
spirators in the successful plot to steal
the state of Montana last year. has sued
the Anaconda Standarse for libel, placing
the damage to his charatcter at the modest
sum of $100,000. The item published by
the Standard to which Mr. Seligman
takes exceptions is as follows:
"We take it tt at Mi. Seligman's busi
ness career in Mont.oan is tio dishonest,
too disreputable, and too uni:,vory for
him to make these insulting adjectives
stick to these gentlemen. They never
yet were in a position where their repu
tation needed the shelter he has been
obliged to seek. And this is the language
ot a man who in his thei tried to rob
Montana miners of theil lhorest wages,
and who would have been hanged at a
rope's end like a common thief if he had
not settled as he was forced to do."
In his opening address at the Butte
convention, Seligman attacked in a lying
and outrageous manner the democratic
managers last fall, asserting that if they
had their just deserts they would be be
hind the prison bars. This attack brought
out the Standard's reply, and was provo
cation for almost anything. The Stand
ard may be able to make good
its assertions and at the same time will
continue to make life miserable for the
Helena statesman and accomplished state
TorE Butte Mining Journal pays the
following deserved compliments to Capt.
Thos. Couch, who for some time has been
the subject of unstinted abuse from the
republican organ of the Silver City:"The
one man in the republican party of Sil
ver Bow county who is now the subject
of the animadversions of the republican
managers of the county is Captain
Thomas Couch. While there may be
personal differences between the gentle
men composing the factions, there is no
reason why Captain Couch should be
made the victim of abuse. He is an old
time republican and has ever paid his
party the fealty due it and has not by any
means been guilty of the vindictiveness
that lis party associates iscribe to
him. He is neither an office seeker
nor office holder. Had he desired to be
he might probably have accomplished
his purpose despite the enml y of those
within the party ranks. As yet politics
do not bother him as much as does his
vast business enterprises, which need his
fostering care and which are last placing
him in the ranks of the Dalys, Clarks,
Hausers, Broadwaters and other men of
Montana, who attained wealth before
they sought political distinction, and yet
who are among the most respected citi
zens of the great and robust young state."
A MAN of the ability, tifluence and
home pride of Paris Gibson will be able
to accomplish greater and more beneficial
results for Great Falls and Ciascade coun
ty than any other person that could be

Our esteemed contemporary is ringing
the changes on the election of a U. 8. aen
ator two years hence, and the fact that
Mr. Gibson, if chosen, would vote for a
democrat to succeed the so-called Senator
Sanders (that's the rub with Rolfe ). Yes,
he would have one vote out of seventy
one and before that time a new house of
representatives would be selected, upon
the result of which will depend the elec
tion of a United States senator. Rolfe is
so zealous in behalf of his distinguished
relative that lie is fighting this shadow
as well as many others. He would sacri
lice local interests and the welfare
of this town and county to
aid in the smallest way Sanders' pros
pects. But then what assurance is there
that Hanks will be a republican two
years hence? Four years ago he was
whoopingit up in his paper here tor Joe
Toole and the entire democratic ticket,
and Rolfe accused him then of selling
out to the democrats.
On October 1i, 1886, Will flanks pub
lished thle fllowing In the Great Falls
TIiuUNcc, of which lie was then tile edi
tor and principal owner:
"The people of Great Falls, regardless
of party, are going to vote for the inter
ests of the commuity in which they live.
Thley know that Toole can and will do
more for us than anyone else. This
fellow who styles hilmself 'Observer'
(Rolfe), alias'Choteau,' speaks of the Tano
cUN as the 'Great Falls Nondescript.' We
don't suppose the ignorant perverter of
facts knows what that word means, but
we take it to insinuate that our political
position is not known or classified. If
he has been reading the TiautaU since
the compaign opened he must be a wil
lul prevaricator or else cannot.under
stand plain English. The reason why
the TRIBUNE has not before announced
its politics is that there had never been
any occasion for it. This is the first
campaign in Choteau county since the
Great Falls Talsaun was established. As
soon as the issues were joined by the
nomination of the opposing candidates
the TRIBUNE declared for J. K. Toole
because we believe his election will result
in the most good to the people of
Great Falls and northern Montana. We
will ever he found flghting for the com
munity in which we live. The "Ob
server' fellow tries to make out that we
have been boycotted for taking a stand
for Toole and the democratic ticket. If
he will take the trouble-to wallk into our
officewe will show him that our list of
subscribers has increased faster than
ever before sine, tie made our political
bow to the public.
This is pretty good democratic and
home interest doctrine, and it is as sound
today as it was when Will Hanks wrote it
in 1888.

The foregoing is from the market re
port in the Boston Advertiser of Sept,
28th. If four cents to cover freight and
commission is deducted from the above
figures. they will show the price of wool
at Great Falls, and how Carter's promises
to the wool growers have -been kept.
That slippery gentlemant went through
Cascade, Choteau and Ferghe counties
last fall, expressing the deepest lnterest
and concern for them. The particular
reason that he desired success In that
election was his earnest solicitude forthe
wool growers, that be might increase the
tariff on that product and consequently
swell the profits of the flockmastersl
But it seems that in this case effect did
not tollow cause. Carter was elected,
bath houses of congress were republican,
a republican sat in the white house,
McK-nley advanced the wool tariff and
this increased duty was an assurance
from the beginning-and the result is
that the price of wool was never lower in
the history of sheep husbandry in Mono
tanal Mr. Carter should hurry home and
explain this anomolous situation, The
wool-growers, who receive about an aver
age of 18 cents a pound for their clips,
against 22 cents last year, are clamorous
for information on the subject. From
the great prairies, the foot-hills and
wherever a sheepman has made his camp
there is a cry that drowns that of the
coyote for Carter to explaio.
Tul River Press says Tom Power start
ed another paper al Benton because the
R. P. persisted in not dubbing him "sen

recognized, but what right has he to the
title of senator, anyhow? He is "sena
tor" by the grace of Jack, Hall and their
co-conspirators and not by the will of the
people of Montana.

Work on the Extension of the Ball
road to Begin
Work Resumed on the Old Barker
Mine Which Will Soon be a
Steady Ore Producer.
Much Development Work Bel ig Done
With Bright Prospects for the
Camp Generally.
The ToriuNx was informed yesterday
by a prominent railroad official that work
on the extension of the Belt Mountains
branch to Nelbart and Barker would be
gin in a few days. It is understood that
a large portion of the force employed on
the Great Falls & Canada road, now com
pleted, except a few miles of surfacing,
will be put on this work. A commence
ment may be ni.rie any day, and trains
will be running into both Neihart and
Barker before Jan. 1, 1891.
The Miners Bnoy Represeninag and De
vrloping Their Claims,
A force of five men has commenced
work on the Barker mine. This is among
the oldest mines in the camp, and much
of the timbering may have to be replaced.
As soon as more men can be used they
will be put to work and the mile will be
put in firstalass condition.
Mr. J. Gibson has remodeled the old
smelter at Hugheasville and will have it
in running order in about two weeks. He
intends to smelt the large pile of ore lying
on the dump at the Barker mine.
George Allis and John Castner are pre
paring to ship some ore from the "Top
Hand," the claim on which the wonder
ful strike was made about two months
ago. They have over four car loads of
ore ready for shipment and as soon as a
road can be built from the mine to the
May & Edna road they will commence
hauling to Monarch.
Wilson, Northam & Co. have been
steadily at work on the Wyandot and
their efforts have been richly rewarded.
Lately they struck a body of ore, the ex
tent of which has not been determined,
that is richer than anything they have
yet found. This mine has over 800 feet
of drifts, shafts and tunnels and is said
to be the best timbered mine in the camp.
The forces on the May & Edna are
kept steadily at work. The promise of
the railroad in a few months may deter
the owners from hauling to Monarch, but
when the road reaches Barker this mine
alone will furnish several train loads of
A large number of valuable finds have
been made, but they are so numerous
that it Is imposlble to enumerate them.
The miners have bee setlirulated by prom
iles of tcinsportation and havegone to
work earnestly to do their part toward
furnlshiqg the railroad freight. Their
work had made evident the fact that there
is plenty of ore in the mountains and it
Is only necessary to dig to find it.
The camp Is showing more- signs of
prosperity than It has at any time sInce
the old smelter closed down. Business
in all lines is good, the people are con
ident and when the iron horse comes
snorting up Dry Fork, Barker will be
one o' the liveliest mining camps In

A meeting of the members of the Cas

and the following officers were elected:

Thiscompany owns several of the best
claims In the Belt mountains, on some of
which considerable work has been done.
They have a force of men at work on
their Woli creek properties developing
some claims which show up well. This
company has followed a conservative
policy in the management of its business
and promises in a shoit time to be on
the list of ividead-paying concerns.

W. W. Baldwin, who came to the city
quite unannounced, and made his exit
after suceessfully withstanding the pump
ing process is no less a personage than
the president of the St. Louis, Keokuk &
Northern railroad, one of the Burling
ton's lines. This company already has,
according to its published maps, a road
runnngl up as far as Newcastle in the
Black Hills in Wyoming, from which
the starting point of the proposed new
line Is but a comparatively short distance.
The line in Montana will have a length
of something like 259 miles. The cross
ing of the Yellowstone river will be made
near Billings or further west, and the
line will go up to White Sulphur Springs
before heading for Helena. The articles
of incorporation provide for "branches"
in other counties and among them Mis
souls, which will afford an outlet to the
west. Surveyors are now actually in the
feld and while nothing more than re
connoisance and preliminary work will
probably be done this fall, the building
of the road will undobtedly Ibe under
taken next year and pushed to comple.
