Paul Mr. Frank A. Richardson of New York, in his adtdrla s before that body, called attention to a petty, but extensive, fraud practiced uponl the public by what is known as the substitute swindle. This is the way it is done: T'1here are many standard articles, which through exteln sive ildvertisinig and real merit. hatve ibeen brought to the notice of and ifre largely tons-mIeld by the people-.

Asn an inducement tl o t l(em small Iealers arin the btter to (,ea bl them to carry out the swindle, theuir names are fre qluntly printed ton the packages by the manufacturers, and the false caption ,our own make' is often added. It is easy to see how the swindle is worked. A customer goes into a store and asks for Scott's Emulsion, for instance. The dealer says that he has it, which is prob ly a lie, but re.onunuends, the customer to buy a preparation put up by himself, which he claims to be equally good, and which, he says, he can recommend be cause, he pretends, he has "compounded himself" and it is his "own make," and besides, while SHtt's Emulsion may be -A) cents a b)ttle., he can sell his own preparation at '`.: cents. Nine times out of ten the customer, relying on the state ment of the druggist, will be induced to motives of ecolnomy to take the substi- i tilt(-, which, of course. is worthless and may be dangeruPs.

The Washington correspondent of the Pioneer Press referring to Secretary Noble's reported resignation and the pos sibility of Tomt Carter being appointed to the vacancy thus created in the cabi net says: I uring the brief time Mr. Carter has been in public office he hiad made an en vicble record. As a lmember of congress he was most successful for his state and section. As comnmnisioner of the general land offlice he has made a splendid record. There is no doubt that the whole north west, and especially what is known as the new northwest, would feel highly complntlimented to have a cabinet officer. The Taurtmsn: has.no desire to belittle Mr. Carter's services to his party or to strip him of the honors he gained in se curing appropriations for public build ings in Montana and in securing free and unlimited silver coinage for the people at large. Mr. Carter has made his rec ord in congress as a representative from this state, and the people voiced their opinion of that record at the polls last November. As far as Montana is con cerned the gentleman must stand or fall by it. He may be regarded at Washing ton as a very efficient public officer, but out here in Montana his recent rule-s and regulations governing the cutting of timber upon the public donmain have not added to the Iuster of his record as comlimissioner of the gen -ral landl ollie. lit fact, the lpeople of this state will have occ;tsion to regret his alppointnent to tlhat (unice, unless he re .-ind the rules il regulations nauueld. W\ithi thent ii viewv the avIerageI Moi t.ian is ofl the oplinion, that Mr. ('rter is dteciliedly in thle wring plahc, and that his ielevation at the Ihead of the ilnterir iepeartiint, whaere the field for nmischieif Iniking wout) be mneuc(:h broider, wiould Ib in the nature of a public calamity.

O(we-n said he could as the pirohibitive clause in the foreign labor contract law appllied only to established industries and not to proposed or conteimplated new in dustries. BIut Foster bucked. The Ohio campaign was about to be opened. Mc Kinley's integrity as a tariff tinker and prophet must be maintained until after el'ection and so Niodringhaus can't get his tinplate makers for the present 1'i re hl haufbee e TII: fact that Mr. James Gordon Ben nett has been indicted by a New York grand jury for publishing an account in his paper, the Herald, of the late electro cution at Sing Sing, brings before the public that very silly feature of the New York statute which not only excludes newspaper reporters but forbids the publication of any account of the execu tion beyond the bare announcement made by the prison officials. Other papers have also been indicted for the same offense, not for the purpose of pun ishing them but to test its constitution ality and to create a public sentiment in favor of the repeal of the obnoxious pro vision. Gordon is in the swim in Paris and will pay no attention to the indict ment nor will the papers be served upon him, but he will doubtless contribute his share toward wiping the restrictive clause froa, the statutes of his state.

The idea of reciprocal trade between the United States upon the one side and any given foreign nation upon the other was not evolved from the teeming brain of Mr. McKinley. It is the legitimate offspring of Secretary lBlaine's gray mat ter, and yet the praises of reciprocity the rider attached to the McKinley tarilT measure--are being sung throughout the republican camp, while but little is said of the tarilf itself. The order of things is reversed; the less has become the greater; the tail is elevated above the kite. Reciprocity or free trade in certain articles, in the eyes of our republican brethren, covers the multitude of sins contained in McKinley's atrocity. The farmer who complains of the high protective duties levied upon the many articles which enter into his household and upon his farm is silenced with a homily upon reciprocity and free sugar. The dairyman who grumbles at the in creased cost of his milk pans and cans is reminded that the country has free su guar and reciprocity. The canners of fruits and vegetables and fish who kick against the 2.2 cents tax on tinplate have reciprocity and free sugar thrown into their teeth. Reciprocity and free sugar are becoming the shibboleth of tlhe re pubilican party. T'he former may open a foreign market to Amaerican Ilour and ptrk, but the tariff will never opten it. 1We have Mr. Blaimne's word for this. Practical reciprocity is nothing more Inor 'les than an agreemlent betwen two nations in which eachi binds itself to ad mit .ertain atnuftaetures and priodull tions of tihe other without theli payment of duties. In other words, it is the es tell ish ft int of free trade relations hbe tween tw'o nations in certain articles. For instance, thel little islands of ICuba, Porto I.ic:, and Halto I)omiingo undiler recent treaties agree to receive certa'il .\A ltrican manufactures and productions without exacting the payment of duties at their ports ttf entry, and the United States agree to receive certain of their products free of duty. That is free trade pure and simple. Quite a little trade will now spring up btetween those is1 antis and this country in which the West Indians will get none the worst of it. Under the termIs of the law countries which wish to negotiate reciprocity treaties with this country must do so before the 1st day of January, 180.Y2. If by that time the reciprocation, contem plated by Mr. lilaine's rider, has not been secured then the free list will be suspended as far as the unreciprocal countries are concerned. But it appears the great foreign nations want none of it. France and Germany still keep their gates closed against the great American hog, though his porkship is industriously rooting to get in. The prospects are that President Harrison will suspend the free list as far as German beet sugar is concerned next Now Year's unless that nation in the meantime agree to take hogs in payment for its sugar. It must be confessed that aside from the insignificant little islands named the reciprocity, as cooked from the Blaine shop, is not so palatable among foreign powers as it wassupposed it would be. Uncle Sam will reciprocate only in articles not manufactured or pro duced in this country, and that doesn't suit the great manufacturing nations across the Atlantic.

As was expected the Leader rushes to the defense of Tom Carter and his tim ber rules and regulations. But it is a poor defense. The Leader should have kept silent. The law is not to blame as the Leader well-knows or should know if it knows anything at all about the matter. The law enpowers the interior depart ment to formulate such rules and regu lations governing the cutting of timber upon the public domain as in its judg ment may best preserve the forestsof the west. If the law prescribes the rules and regulations why did Mr. Carter cause their publication over his own sig nature? Is it customary for heads of bureaus to take laws bodily from the United States statutes, affix their signatures to them and call them "rules and regulations?" The Leader will not assert that Mr. Carter did this. The fact is Mr. Carter is wholly re sponsible for his timber rules and regu lations. It does not help his case any for the Leader to revert to the time when Carl Hchurz became crazy and old Sparks cranky over that republican timber law and put the people of Mon tana to much inconvenience fora season. Schurz exacted stumpage; Sparks ob jected to the wholesale felling of trees by lumbeirmen. Carter asks no stump age, nor does he object to the felling of every tree in the state, but he insists that a man who wanlts a tent pole or a stick of firewood must first obtain per mission of the interior department to cut it. The Leader man could take an axe aild cut what firewoal or lumber lie wanted anywhere on the public domain a few months ago. The time will soon conic when he can't do even that unless Mr. Carter revise his rules and regula tions. I.or all the available timber on the plullic domain will 5son be in tihe hands of a few corporations. The Lead er could have Ibought a load of cordwood a few weeks ago fromI a wodlchopper on the street. It can't do it now without violating Mr. Carter's rules and regula tions. Does the "efliciency" of Mr. Car ter come in right there, Mr. Leader? 7'lTHAT K AA;NlS JUDGE. The alliance men in Kansas knew what they were about when they elected McKay, the Topeka man, judge. lie did not claim to know anything about law and ratiher prided himself upon his ig norance of it. In fact that was the prime factor of his success at the polls. A man learned in the law was not wanted by his supporters. There was certain work to be done a nission to be filled, in which the trained conscientious law yer was not at home, but in which Mc Kay shines. This work or mission is to prevent the foreclosure of farm mort gages in Kansas. As far as McKay is concerned he has succeeded admirably, for all mortgage foreclosure cases brought before him he has taken under advise ment and he will force them to the su preme court. And now it is said his action will prevent the foreclosure of a mortgage in his district during the next four years. McKay's boasted contempt for the law brought him before the supreme court of the state, but he proved equal to the occasion. lie declared no contempt was contemplated by him and the court, af ter reading him a lecture, lot him go. Of course McKay is simply the tool of inti.lligent, designing advisers and faith fully does their bidding. But it is a question whether the farmers' alliance can long survive its McKays. The law may work a hardship to meimbers of the alliance, but its repeated violation will work a greater one in the long run. FRA UILtXLENT NONSEN.SE. Under the above Iheadline the Minne apolis Times silences the cry of gohi bugs that thie silver dollhr is a1 "dislon est" dollar in the following terse lines: L. One, of the silliest arguments used by the mIononletallhHts against the free coin age of silver is that it is dishonest bi, cause- "al silver dollar is only wcorth 814 cents." Admit it. Admit that the sil ver in a silver dollar, strippted of its legal ten.der quality and reduced to the condi tion of a rnmre commodity, is worth only $4) cents. What would a gold dollar ie worth if it was reduced to the same level? What would the gold mn a gold dollar be worth in the market, stripped of its legal tender quality as silver was in 187:3? The fact is if gold were demonetized thle bull ion in a gold dollar would not be worth more than 130 cents. It is worth lon than that as a commodity for use in the arts. It is not necessary to Ih an ardent free silver advocate in order to see that the cry of "dishonesty" raised against silver coinage is fraudulent nonsense. The Times could have added that if silver had not b.on fraudulently dlemon etized by the republican party in 1873 tile world would not hear today the dis honest cry of monometallists that the silver dollar of 412% grains is a "dishon est" dollar, a "short weight" dollar, a "fraudulent" dollar. It was through a "dishonest" measure that silver was stripped of its legal tender quality; it has been through "light weight" poli ticians that silver has not long since been fully remonetired and its full re storation to a parity with gold was do feated last winter by its "fraudulent" friends. WITH Ohio wool 4 cents a pound lower than It was before Mr. McKinley's tariff measure took effect it would ap pear that gentleman will have no prim rose path to travel among the small sheep raisers of his state. McKinley Is a good one it he oonvince them it is to their lanterest to support him and his tariff. POSTOFFICE MATTERS. The last congress appropriated $22, 000,000 in excess of the previous allow unce for carrying on that branch of the government. It must be assumed that the department was fully advised as to its needs and made its demands upon congress accordingly. But it appears that Mr. Wanamaker either overlooked Great Falls or underestimated the busi ness of the office in this city, or greatly overestimated the physical capacity of the already hard-worked postmaster. For in the general distribution of mon eys allowed for clerk hire it is found that only $1,300 was appropriated to it for the hire of assistants This pittance is so palpably insufficient for the purpose that words are hardly required to emphasisz the fact. Here is a city of 6,000 inhabit ants. They were neither born nor raised here, but have come from nearly every state in the union and many of them from the other side of the Atlantic. They have left friends and relatives at their old homes with whom they are in constant correspondence, whilehundreds of them still take the papers published at the place of their nativity. The re sult is that aside from the business let ters received here, the outside letter and paper mail is simply enormous. The outgoing mail is correspondingly large. In view of these facts it should be ap parent that the sum of $1,.K)0 set apart by the department at Washington for clerk lhire in the postollice in the city lalls fur short of its actual needs. And in view of tihe further fact that the office is ia source of revenue and not a burden to the government it would seem that simple justice demnunds a largely in Screased apportionment for the purpose named. It is not necessary here to in quire as to who is blamable for this meagre allowance. We have the fact not a theory to deal with. The post master has only a certain sum at his dis pomsal. If he can hire the necessary as sistance with it, well and gxknd. If he cannot the service will suffer unless he or someone else pay his assistants. Tile question which most affects the citizens of (Great Falls is that touching the prompt and efficient discharge of the duties of the postmaster. If this be impossible without the employment of more clerks than tile allowance will jus tify steps should immediately be taken to represent the matter at Washington and ask for an increased amount. In this the business men of the city could effectually supplement the efforts of the postmaster by joining in a petition or re quest for the sum needed. The TamlumIN believes that if the situation here be properly represented to the authorities at Washington and they become con vinced that the amount appropriated for the office here is insufficient they will unhesitatingly increase it. That is what they are there for. The citizens of Great Falls should take hold of this matter if they desire a prompt mail service at this place. Let it be done. C'ARTER'S RESPIONSIBILI T . It will be time for the Leader to plead the baby act for Mr. Carter when that gentleman himself denies his responsi bility for the new timber rules and regu lations. Mr. Carter has not denied his responsibility for them, nor will he deny it. In its attempt to saddle the respon sibility upon Hecretary Noble, the Leader quotes as follows: "By virtue of the power vested in the secretary of the interior by the act of March 3, 1891," but it forgets to add, "the following rules and regulations are hereby pre scribed." It furthermore overlooked the fact that the rules and regulations were signed as follows: Very respectful!y. T. II. CARITEII., ',om minsl. iwr. i Api rovel: lay 5. IAL. .0ollt W. Neie.a Hucrotary, It will be reetmembered that Mr. (Carter is the cminiissioner of the general land office at Washington; that he is supreme in his department, andi that one of his duties is to exercise supervision over the public lands of the 'nited States. Mr. Carter will brook no interference in his discharge of the duties of his oflhce. (oncmerning this the Washington clrre spcrelnt of the Pioneer Press writing under date of the 2nd inst., says: For maniy years past the position of calllln issioner has been regarded as one of the hardest places to till of almost any similar offlic in tile government. There have been very few connmissioners that made a success of the place.
