THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE.
SATUIDAT, MARCH 5. 1A. A VEW gVArTS AND WIGITR, wN. The intelligent discussion of the wool question cannot be carried on within the domain of speculation. Facts and fig tires count, while hare, assertions and ns sumptions go for what little they are worth. The sheep raiser who has his last dollar invested in his Iticks, and the laboring man who has the little backs of a growing family ti, ctlothe are each vitally interested in the determination of the question. In both cases pockete are totuchedl. 'rThe wtool grower wants to g.et every cent he can for his wadtl and the consIIutPIer is 'equally urioius to to tny hies wo.tleni a chet.aply as Ipossible. The wtetl grocer will favor a taritff that puts money in his pocket while the consuller will support oneo that keeps money in his. It would appear to the uninformed that a clasbing of interests would be the inevitable result of these widely diverg. intg inc.linations. It should not be si anti] woul nt tundler ait proper wool tarifft. \Whin the labowing man buys the ioarse t'arlpets which onver the Io.nre of his ho(use hie prays the A)l per cent tariff tax upon thet motire r'adily because he tblievies lhe is helpinl his wool growing neigihbor atcross the ay. ayind adding .aatlnething to the Clay wages of the mill employe working at his side. But really neithetr is benefited by the tax.

J. K. Clark of Walkerville that "his men ' are praying three times a (lay for the is passage of the Bland free crinage bill." To he Inter Mountain then adds: "But it : seems their supplications have been in h vain and will continue to be in vain as i long as they are based on democratic e promises." And Col. Read could have Spaid. and as long its they are based on d republi.an performances. Y It makes the average reader decidedly " weary to read the rot with which Mon Stuna re.publicni journals till their col r umns ale ut their party being the friend Sof silver and demoecrats~beiag its enemy. I For the sanme reader knows, if he knows enough to come in out of the wet, that a republic-an congress has defeated four silver coinage bills. the laist one being defeated in the republican house by re publican votes last winter. In the face of these facts and mu the face of the fur Sther fact that there is not today a single pronlinent republican in the United States east of the Missouri river who fa vors free silver coinage, it is the acmne of falsehoad anti hypocricy for republican jogurnals to assert, Imuch less to contend, that the republican party is the friend of silver. It is trut and it will be readily con , 'eded there are republicans in the west. I "specially in Montana. who would be pleased to see the Iland coinage bill be come in law, but th1ey have no party or gaun in this state not a single one. 'There is not gI repulahlian journal in Montana that has come out fairly and squart'ly in favr of thelg Iland bill.l I'lht ira te' anid the tite and talehnt of 'hir .,itors Lhave been d.votlI to slur ringl rtc:argks alonl and silly criticisms i if ' vertain leading democlrats whoit le- I hi 've intereist of silver wiuld be bet-" ter subserved by dtlafevrring diurinite action Spiln it until after the presidential eleh' titn \h lion with at denattratie t,-nlgrss't. and aI h:tot'tratit lpresidenti a free gain i atie lill iwould bee, i e at lati .

A ERMOiN I .IEV NE OWlRi. .\ lady contributor to one of the 'Chicago journals deals a fearful blow to that morbid sentiment which would see a fellow being go down into the depths of hadtes because at some time in his or her life a temptation presented itself too strong to be resisted and poor, frail, human nature fell. Her words are a sermon which should sink deep into the hearts of those whom itnder fate has pursued. and who seated upon a "'I am holier than thou" pedestal withdraws at helping hand to the unfortunate that move along in the world's passing show. Here is the sermon: That's right. Stand on shore and Ieit him back when he attempts to imake a landing. If necessary club him under water anti congratulate yourself that you are so self-righteous and everlast ingly holy that nolbidy can get a chance to swing a club at you. W hat is this half-dead thing that is trying to force its way onto dry land front the whelming waters of temptation and misery? A rat? Oh, no: only a human creature like yourself. Sin overtaken anti sub dued by evil. He is young, perhaps.and never had a mother's care or a father's training. le has drifted with easy cur rents into dangerous waters, and the devil, who lurks beneath the thttd, is trying to snatch him down to hell! iatise your club anti give him ai clip! Thte audacity of such a boy trying to Ie anything with such a record lie hilind him! Oh. I am sick of you aill. you iullltiertous feetders on reputation. vito unvoilersl of past records of slianme! I hope Iil my h:.art that if you ever get your own fioot on the lit' threshold of sioime Ihawtl of relief, after it tight tnssl, with danger anlld tath. an angel will staniil over luglinst the d.oortway with ; tlnaming sword iand detiwnl i to see yur Irentle litils. No hope of that. though. angils are not upl to that sort oIf work: it is left to tnen. atiul somelttimles l d l pi itsl to For "heL" and "him," rlead "'shet" iandl "'her"'' and thetn we have a pichture which promplted 'Tlhomas I loo to xt, aiii: "..hl f.,- tt. ranti y gInIral shauttinalg down a? the a.IIadlll t mines in luttte oln niount of tlte low price of silver that miners. mine othieers and all other employees f mines Inake a reduction in their wages equal to the decline in silver inl order to secure the continuced running of the mills andt working of the mining proprties in that city. It further advises in order "to carry the equity still further the owners if houses shnould ut down their rents to meet the a ut in wages while it is in I force." In other words. the Journal wounl have the miners and landlords of Butte adjust their wages and rents to tle thel tuating market price of siher. I'aor in stance, if silver be quoted at itt'1. il it now is. wages shall Ihe, say. $3 pr day: if quoted at D9i wages shall be $.2,i.and if quoted at $1l a days laabor shall com mand "l..lO, anld so on. wages to run up and down on a sliding scale. keeping pace with the varying nmarket price of silt her as tixed in London. Let us sie how this woult work. "The miner is met at the shaft house Iy the shift l.ss. who holds a telegramn in his hand. "John." he says. "silver has tum bled live points since yesterday. Your wages today will be twenty live cents less than yesterday. Do you wish to work?" John thinks of the little wife and baby whom hie has just left at home. heaves a sighh. and descends the shaft. Th'e next lay he learns that silver has again tumbled, and he suffers another redue tion in his wages. As the price of cop per sympathlizes, in a measure, with that of silver about the salime program is re ptated at the copper mine shaft house. In the end it becomes understood that miners' wages in Butte is fixed by lan don silver speculators. The Journal iannot claim originality for its plan. It was suggested by a Butte crank several years ago and secoted as visionary aind impracticable. It was argued, and with reason, that if the wages of miners was to he regulated by the price of silver, the regulation shoubl extend all along the line dr trades and avocations, from the mine superintendent to the boot-black on the street, and that the price of tnour and meat anti clothing and all other neces saries of lifet should bI gauged yh the iaarkaet quotations of the metal. The Journa: suenms to forget that there is another and a better way to fix the pay of miners and other wage earners a way that eliminates all uncertainty front the pay roll of mine owners and from the weekly receipts of the miner. That way is funad in thel free coinage of silver.

The admission of new states and the reapportionment made by the last con gress have materially increased the num ber of electorial votes in the aggregate as may be seen by a comparison of those in 1888 with the number which will be cast in 1892: Alabama ..

Of this number the solid soubh with Connecticnt, Delaware and New .Jersey all sure for the demo cratic ticket-- will cast 176 electoral votes, and the northern and western states will cast !.38 votes. In order to elect their president the democrats must get forty-seven votes in them. Under' the new Michigan law the democrats may safely count on seven of the four teen electoral votes in that state. This leaves forty votes to tind. New York o anti Montana will furnish thirty-nine of them. The one wanting will be foundt in Indiana. or lowv. or Wisconsin. or Nebraska.

Helena contemporary will please bear in mind that the Tirn ( t'.: would be pleased to see Helena have ai doztn railriads to Castle. but the Tarii t: does not really believe that she will get one for the simple reason that such a road would not be a paying in vestment. Capital- not sentiment builds railroads now a-days. and capital is not inclined to throw away its money. lIi the way it does not appear that the republican members of the house are "vociferously hilarious" just now over the prospects of the passage of a free coinage measure. It is said that less than ten out of a memnberhip of eighty odd will favor the Bland bill. And still we are told that the republican party is the friend of the white metal. 'rl: hopes of the anti-silver mIen in the house were dampencd by the deci sion of Bynum of Indiana to stand in with the delegation from his stateon the silver issue. lEvery democratic congress nman from the Hoosier state may now he safely counted on to vote for the Itlaui( coinage hill.
