The Republican Meeting.
Last Monday night a large audience as
seinbled in the Park Opera House
listen to Ex-Gov. B. R. Sherman of Iowa
Judge Blake and Col. Wilbur F. Sanders
discuss the issues of the day from a re
publican standpoint.
About 7:30 p. m. the Yellowstone brass
band escorted the speakers from the A1
bemarlc hotel to the Opera House. The
meeting was called to order by Mr. Frank
Henry, chairman of the republican county
central committee. On the platform were
Ex-Governor Sherman, Judge Henry A
Blake, C«l. Wilbur F. Sanders, County
Attorney Allan R. Joy, Dr. W. T. Collins
and Mr. Frank H enry, who introduced as
the first speaker Governor 8herman.
Governor Sherman's address was ex
tremely interesting and was listened to
with great interest by the people present
He devoted most of bis time to a discus
sion of the financial aspects of the cam
paign as shown in tha history of the two
parties. He spoke of the extreme im
portance of the triumph of the republican
party and the paramount necessity of each
and every voter to consider carefully the
issues at stake before casting his ballot
He urged also that every man who had a
vote should cast it, if it lay within his
power to get to the polls; to cast aside
all former prejudices and vote according
to his idea of what will be the best thing
for himself and the country at large. The
speaker thought that there was little dan
ger but what every vote so cast wouid be
for the republican party. He then re
viewed the history of the two parties
Speaking of the republican party, he said
that the first convention was held in 1856,
but that the people were not as yet wil
ling to trust the reins of government to
the hands of an untried party. In 1860,
however, the new party repealed its
pledges to refill the then empty treasury
and restore harmony among the states
where discord then existed. He then
sliowed how the party had fulfilled its
promises by replenishing the treasury un
til its coffers ran over; putting down the
rebellion, thus treeing the slaves and re
storing harmony among the disaffected
states. The reason tliaf the democratic
party prevailed in 1884 Mas that the cry
that a change in an administration that
had ruled the country for twenty-four
years would be beneficial to the country.
The change was made by a majority of u
few hundred votes. The*speaker then
showed the radical change in Uncle Sam's
credit which took place under a republi
can government; how the bonds which
went begging before at 80 cents on the
dollar went away above par under that
beneficent rule. The homestead law then
occupied the attention- of Governor Sher
man, that law which is to-day a great
monument to the friendliness of the re- 1
publican party to the workingman. The
speaker held the close attention ot his
audience and sat down amid an enthusi
astic round of applause.
Judge Henry X. Blake was then intro
duced by the chairman. After a few
facetious remarks on his personal affairs
and the fact that for the first time in nine
campaigns his name was not before the,
pcople for their suffrages, and he was |
therefore independent, lie proceeded to
arraign Mr. Clark for the false statements
he was making to uphold his free trade
fallacies. He spoke for instance of
Clark's statement that Uncle Sam im
ported 300,000,000 pounds of wool per
annum, when really the amount last year
was only 114,000,000 pounds. Also of
the statement Mr. Clarke made that Mon
tana produced 12,000,000 pounds of wool,
when it was really only a little over
4,000,000 pounds. He then spoke of the
ridicule of the democratic orators of the
fact that acorns, human hair raw, etc.,
were on the free list of the senate bill,
and asked why they should ridicule this
any more than the republicans should the
Mills bill, as the latter bill included the
same articles on the free list. Judge
Blake then attacked the free wool and
free lead arguments of the democratic or
ators and destroyen their value by show
ing the fallacy of the same. He then
made an eloquent appeal for republican
votes and prophesied a victory for the
party on the 6th of November. He then
took his seat to the accompaniment of a
hearty round of applause from the audi
Colonel Sanders was then introduced
by Chairman Henry. Be was greeted
with an ovation. Some one in the audi
ence said '.'Three cheers for the old war
horse," and the audience gave them with
a will. The colonel's voice was husky
for a few moments from a bad cold, but
after a few introductory remarks it grad
ually cleared and the same energetic,
earnest and ringing tones delivered the
well rounded periods of a short but elo
quent and brilliant speech, that have
many times before struck terror to the
hearts of the enemy in former campaigns.
He earnestly urged the republicans to
rally to the banner of protection and to
supjiort the territorial and county ticket
with all the strength that the party pos
sessed. He then said that he wanted to
correct an impression that seems to have
got abroad that he had attacked the char
acter of the "Hon. Samuel Word, the hero
to speak. He spoke for about an hour
of Camas Creek and the man who built
the Rocky Fork railroad." That he did
not believe that Mr. Word had told half
the lies that were credited to him, or had
slung half the filth and vinification upon
honest men that he was reported as hav
ing done, but that be had fathered the
lies and was posing as the author of the
villification and made no denial thereof,
so he must stand accused, and the people
believed that he had said these things.
Th.e speaker held up to the ridicule of the
audience this man whom he called the
"great democratic orator of Montana,''
and in scathing language and with keen
satire laid bare bis record to the audience
until they hooted with derision. After
the speaker had sat down amid a tremen
dous round of applause, the audience
gave three cheers for Carter, Sanders,
Blake and Sherman, and left the hall.
The meeting lusted until about 11:30
p. in.
Democratic Meeting.
Last Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock
the Hon. W. A. Clark and Hon. W. Y.
Pemberton arrived from Bozeman in a
passenger car attached to a freight
train. They were accompanied by a
small delegation of Bozemanites, who
reported that the town over the range
was in a state of "innocuous desuetude"
from the effects of the Clark meeting
there on Friday night. The party was
met at the Livingston depot by Judge
Savage, chairman of the democratic
central committee, and several other
prominent democratic citizens and es
corted to the Albemarle hotel, where
they partook of a supper.
The people commenced quite early to
gather at the Opera House, and by 7:30
the house M as filled by the audience
with which Livingston always greets
a show of any kind. The "Chip o' the
Old Block" theatrical company had
made arrangements to give their per
formance after the speaking was over,
so the audience (as every seat in the
house was sold) was largely composed
of theater-goers as well as those who
wished to hear the political speeches.
The Yellowstone Brass band escorted
the speakers from the hotel to the Opera
House and played one or two pieces in
the intervals between speeches. On the
platform were the lion. W. A. Clark,
Hon. W. Y. Pemberton, Judge J. A.
Savage, Geo. J. Allen, Dr. Monroe, Dr.
Campbell, B. F. Myers and J. M. Conrovv.
At the reporters' table was J. S. Dick
erson, representing the democratic ter
ritorial committee and John Bean, repre
senting the republican territorial com
Judge Savage, acting as chairman of
the meeting, then called the assemblage
order and introduced as the first
speaker of the evening the Hon. W. A.
Clark. Mr. Clark was greeted with a
round of applause as he stepped forward
and a half. lie said that everywhere
he went he met old friends and that
Livingston was no exception to the
rule. He reviewed the great natural
resources of Park county and spoke of
the necessity of railroads for their fur
ther development. He strongly advo
cated allowing railroads to be built
through the Park to reach the valuable
mines. His sentiments received con
siderable applause from the audience.
He spoke of the great agricultural re
sources of the valley and said that he
thought that Butte and that district
should get their supplies from this sec
tion instead of sending to Utah for
them. He then attacked the senate tar
iff bill, first quoting Don Piatt's remark
that "there was more dignity and more
stupidity in the United States senate
than in any similar body in the world."
He showed up what he thought were
the inconsistencies of the bill and de
livered a high encomium on the Mills
bill. His private history then occupied
his attention and he urged his intimate
connection with the past, present and
future history of the territory as a
strong point in his favor. The free
lead question received his attention, as
well as that of free wool. He advanced
the usual democratic arguments in their
favor, coming to the conclusion that
free lead and free wool would vastly
benefit our territory. The audience did
not seem to fully understand how this
could be, notwithstanding the speaker's
arguments, and did not greet this con
clusion with any marked approval.
When Mr. Clark sat down a very re
spectable round of applause greeted the
conclusion of his speech. After the
band had played a selection, Hon. W. Y.
Pemberton was introduced to the audi
ence, -'U
Mr. Pemberton started in with a few
humorous allusions to the various can
didates, but finally announced that
Grover Cleveland w r as the only one a
sane man could vote for. He denied
that the democratic party was a free
trade party. Mr. Pemberton's language
was, in the language of the sailor,
"more suited to the foc'sle than the
cabin," and the audience would have
been better pleased, owing to the large
number of ladies present, if he had con
fined himself to argument and omitted
some of the blackguardism. It would
at least have been in better taste. A
Livingston audience is on a par if not
superior in intelligence to any that can
be got together in Montana, and a
speaker shows poor judgment who ad
dresses them as he would an audience
of longshoremen. Towards the close of
Mr. Pemberton's speech the audience,
who were anxiously waiting for the
show to commence, got very restive
and the speaker was interrupted several
times by the "gallery gods." For a
while he persisted in continuing, but
finally concluded that discretion was
the better part of valor and sat down.
The building was then cleared and
the "Chip o' the Old Block" company
took possession and gave their perform
ance to a full house.
Ed. Enterprise : — Seeing au article in
the Livingston Sentinel, (a democratic
campaign sheet) concerning Mr. H. O.
Hickox, a candidate on the republican
ticket for commissioner, which says on the
so-called excellent authority of his neigh
bors, that he will not carry his own precinct
and that he is devious m his dealings. I
wish to take the subject up and enlighten
some of the readeis of your valuable pa
per. As far as regards Mr. Hickox not
carrying this precinct, I can safely say
that lie will get a handsome majority here,
and as for sayingt hat he is devious in his
dealings, I think that is doinga great in
justice to an honest man. Mr. Hickox's
business qualifications are such that lie
would not go astray in anything. He is one
of the pioneers of Sweetgrass. He started in
business here will) a few hundred dollars
worth of goods and a log cabin, and now lie
has a large new store and a fine hotel and
many other improvements and a stock of
goods that runs well up m the thousands,
which show his ability and integrity as a
business man. And the only cause that
his neighbors can give for branding him
as they have, (if they did as we only have
the Sentinel's word for it) is that he was al
ways ready to credit any of his customers
and when lie was compelled to collect to
meet his own bills it no doubt put some
against him. Now we all know the ne
cessity of a commissioner from this end
of the county and we could not put a bet
ter man than II. O. Hickox in the office.
And he need have no fear about not car
rying his own precinct. And after the
6th of November Mr. Roth will see that
Mr. Hickox stands a few notches higher
than lie imagined, and if Mr. Roth cannot
down a man catch as catch can, he had
better try it by a fair and sure bold. Mr.
Hickox will be supported by many friends
here. A democrat.
Melville, M. T., Oct. 29, 1888.
"To the Votera and Taxpayers of Park
County, Montana.''
Ed. Enterprise : — I notice in a recent
issue of the Livingston Sentinel an article
under the above caption, over the signa
tures of our honorable board of county
commissioners, that is surely misleading
in at least two of the principal statements
contained therein, and to which I wish to
call the attention of the intelligent voters
of Park county. First, "The assessor re
turns no list of railroad property," and
further carries the idea that the assessor
has no power to fix the value of property
assessed, but simply accepts the value
placed on the same by the property owner.
In answer I wish to caii your attention to
Sec. 14, page 88, of the laws passed at
the extraordinary session of the fifteenth
legislative assembly, which contains
the following: "The assessor of
each county shall assess and value all
property required by the provisions of this
act to be assessed aud valued." Then it
is one of the duties of the assessor to fix
the value on all property assessed by
him. Further, the railroad company has
never disputed by their attorneys and
agents this power of the county assessor,
but liree years since, when I, as assessor
of Gallatin eounty, raised'the assessment
of the railroad company on their lands to
just double the value returned by them,
the land commissioner was veiy ready to
meet the board of equalization with a
compromise and consented to a raise of
something like $75,000. Second, they
state, "The assessor is never obliged to go
to the employes individually in regard to
their special tax." The statute requires
the assessor to demand a list of all taxable
property of eacli taxpayer, and if lie has
no real or personal property subject to
taxation the assessor must collect his spe
cial poor tax. Further, the county com
missioners of Gallatin county, at the re
quest of C. W. Prossiter. master mechanic
of the Livingston shops, directed me to
call upon ail railroad employes and de
mand their said special tax, and this on
the advice ot the district attorney, and
that I visited the employes personally can
be verified by the employes in the ma
chine shops. I make this correction in
justice to the taxpayers and to myself as
candidate for the office of county assessor,
and in order that no intelligent voter may
misunderstand the facts or be misled by
the false statements that have been or
may be made in regard to the assessor's
powers and duties. Respectfully,
T. P. McDonald.
There seeirs to be some misunder
standing in regard to the salary of the
superintendant of schools. It is only
$400 per year and re-election to office is
the least recognition that the voters can
give the excellent management of Miss
Brunette Ballinger during her past term
of office.
On November 12th the Montana Cen
tral company will put on through limited

Attention, Votera!
Owing to the increasing work in the
county treasurer's office, due to sending
out tax notices and receipting for taxes, I
shall be unable to make any personal
canvass for my election to the office of
county treasurer. I shall therefore be
compelled to trust to my friends and the
republican voters of Park county to favor
me with their ballots on the 6th of No
vember without my personal solicitation.
My record as county treasurer during the
past eighteen months is before the people,
and should they see fit to elect me to the
office I have tried conscientiously to fill,
i will endeavor to continue to serve the
best interests of the people of Park county
with honesty and fidelity, aided materi
ally hy the experience I have already had
in the office. Yours very respectfully.
F. W. Wright.
