COMMENTS.
The large audience in the Opera
Hoi ise that listened to the speeches oi
the democratic orators on Saturday was
a compliment to any cause or any
speaker. Mr. Clark's address was list
ened to attentively by the numerous re
publicans present as well as by the
democrats. It was evident, however,
that his arguments in favor of 1'ree lead
and free wool were not very heartily
endorsed by those present. What ap
plause was called forth was in response
to the stock political expressions of
"the triumph of the party on the (3th of
November" and others such as are
heard from speakers on both sides of
the question and endorsed unanimously
by their political adherents. Mr. Clark
is no orator, but he speaks plainly and
by the aid of some unwarranted state
ments is apparently logical. Political
addresses after the style of W. Y. Pem
berton's amuse those of the audience
whom they don't disgust, but convince
nobody. If there is any truth in the
statement that this campaign is one of
brains and one of sober convictions,
some of the stump orators do not seem
to have ri.iiiz< ! Hie fact. We do not
think that Ai r. ( lurk or Mr. Pemberton
converted any republicans to their
views, in fact rallier the contrary, or
that Mr. Clark's money, which was
spent in the saloons in town on Satur
day night, convinced anybody that free
trade would be a benefit to Montana.
Ex-Gov. I». K. Sherman of Iowa, who
has been in the territory for four or five
weeks on a visit, was one of the speak
ers at the republican rally on Monday
night. Governor Sherman was gover
nor of Iowa for four years and was one
of the pioneer citizens of that state. As
governor of Iowa, one of the greatest
agricultural states in the Union, his
strong arguments and firm convictions
in favor of protection to American in
dustries are well worth listening to and
controvert many of the rash and un
based statements that have been made
by democratic orators on that same
platform this fall. The audience
showed their deep interest in his speech
by giving close and uninterrupted at
tention to the end.
* *

There were probably very few of our
citizens who attended the democratic
meeting on .Saturday night and who
were present at the republican meeting
on Monday night but what mentally,
if not publicly, compared the speakers
of the two occasions—compared the
sentiments expressed and the manner
in which they were expressed. This
comparison we will wager was largely
in favor of the republican speakers.
The plain, convincing and thoughtful
effort of Governor Sherman on the
financial history of the two parties; the
arraignment of Clark in his wild and
incorrect statements in regard to our
wool industry by Judge Blake, sup
ported by quotations of figures from
government reports of democratic offi
cials themselves; and,to cap the climax,
the eloquent and earnest speech of Col.
Sanders, in which he showed the meth
ods of dirt and vinification whereby the
democratic party endeavored to divert
the minds of the people of Montana
from the real issues. The speeches de
livered by W. A. Clark and W. Y. Pem
berton, on the 27th of the month from

that same stage, sink into insignificance
and become puerile and ranting non
sense when compared to such as these.
The "arguments" of Mr. Clark, which
he upholds by making such statements
as that Montana raises 12,000,000 pounds
of wool per annum, when she raises
but 4,000,000 pounds; that the United
States imports 300,000,000 pounds of
wool, when last year there were hut
about 114,000,000 pounds imported; and
Mr. Pemberton's overflow of black
guardism, which cannot he Signified by
the name of argument, are unworthy
of notice when thinking men, such as
are the citizens of Montana, are consul
ering a question which vitally affects
their welfare, as it does that of their
children.
* . *

If soiue of the solicitous friends
of Mr. Emmons would give their
attention to the matter of proving
that he is not being put forward
in the interest of a corporation,
instead of accusing the Enterprise of
"injustice," "persecution," etc., such
enlightenment would tend to influence
the votes of Park county in favor of the
gentleman. Even Mr. Emmons has
never publicly—nor so far as we know
privately—refuted this charge. We
would ask of our readers why the
gentleman has remained silent upon
this subject.
By the time the Enterprise again
goes to press the results of the county
election will be known. Whatever men
the majority of the voters of Park
county may see fit to place in the posi
tions of trust which they are elected to
fill, the Enterprise will cheerfully ac
quiesce in their election, irrespective of
what others we may have supported or
opposed. But before going to the polls
to perform that highest and greatest
duty of an Amer'can citizen—the cast
ing of an honest ballot—we would ask
the voters of Park county to pause and
carefully and in an unprejudiced light
view the claims of the various candi
dates and the effect of the principles
they represent upon the prosperity of
our territory and the development of its
resources.
***
The republican party claims that its
methods of legislation, its active inter
est in the cause of labor and its great
and vital principle of proper protection
to home industries are the most conclue
ive to the general welfare of Montana,
We believe its claims are well supported
and that the democratic theory would
be detrimental and inimical to our lead
ing industries. It has been shown in
the brief time the democratic party has
been in power that its course of action
towards the great territories is one of
disregard, suppression, carpetbagism
persecution of settlers and corruption
in polities such as has never existed
under republican rule. For these and
many other reasons we urge the up
holding of the republican ticket wher
ever it can be done without putting a
man into office who is sailing under
false colors. By this wc mean that
when a man, whether directly or indi
rectly, violates one of the greatest prin
ciples of a republican government
that of the representation of the people
and not of any organization of money
or power—even if nominated (by ques
tionable imans generally) by a republi
can convention, he should not receive
the votes of an intelligent community.
At this critical point in the history of
our county it is more than ever neces
sary that good officers should be placed
in the positions to which they will he
elected next week. We think that the
interests of the territory and the tax
payers of Bark county demand, with
the exception of the gentleman who is
candidate lor assessor on that ticket,
the election of the republican county
ticket. Our reasons for this are that
they are good men, and are men who
would conscientiously look after that
part of the affairs of the county that
was intrusted to their charge. As an
assistance to those of the voters who are
not personally acquainted with the can
didates for election, we will briefly refer
to a few of those before the people for
the more important offices.
% *
*
The character and qualities of the
candidate for the council, Mr. Geo. M.
Hatch, we have already shown to our
readers and we can only repeat that
there are few men in this section of the
country who would so conscientiously
and ably represent our interests in that
powerful body. He is a man of ac
knowledged integrity and business abil
ity and, what is most important, has
l>een tried and not found wanting. He
has served the people as county com
inissioner and served them well, as well
as having already been in the legislative
body of Montana.

The candidate for the legislat ure. Mr.
Geo. H. Carver, the well known Living
ston business man and able county com
missioner, is also a well known and re
spected citizen, a man of business abil
ity and cue who was an important fac
tor in obtaining the division of the
county. His record as county commis
sioner is excellent, has been fearless and
entirely in the best interests of the tax
payers of Park county.
* * *
The candidates for county commis
sioners, Win. M. Wright, H. J. Hoppe
and H. O. Ilickox, are all men well
known to the citizens of Park county
and all well worthy of the votes of the
people. Win. Wright is a man of large
business affairs and is probably as well
posted on the resources and needs of
Park county as any man in it. IL J.
Hoppe is a resident of the Yellowstone
valley, an old timer in Montana, having
come here in 1865. He is one of those
who helped develop her resources in the
days when men carried their lives in
their hands, and it is proper that her
in
of
by
as
of
to
of
citizens, who are now reaping the bene
fit of these men's enterprise and hardy
pioneering, should bestow some reward
upon them. Mr. II. O. Hickox, the Mel
ville merchant, is business, energy and
enterprise personified. A communica
tion which appears in another column
of this issue of the Enterprise shows
the way that he honestly- came by what
property he has now. The writer of
the communication is a trustworthy
gentleman, well known to uf, and we
very willingly endors« his remarks on
the character of M r. Hickox.
* * *
The candidate for county attorney,
Allan K. Joy, is a well known lawyer
and has been long enough before the
people of Park county for them to see
that he would make a good county at
torney and would actively prosecute of
fenders against the dignity and laws of
the county.
* . *
*
F. W. Wright, the candidate for the
office of county treasurer, has been
county treasurer since a year ago last
May and his administration of the office
has been exemplary. He is a careful
and honest officer, thorough in his work
and has given his office close personal
attention since he has been in it. His
record also as a business man in Living
ston, as a soldier in the late war and as
a public spirited citizen is excellent. The
people of Park county can not do better
than to reinstate Mr. Wright in office
* , *
*
Walter V. Grannis is candidate for
the office of county clerk. He is a well
known and respected stock and ranch
man. He and his family are identified
with the history of Park county. He
was formerly in commercial business
and is well qualified for the office he is
candidate for.
* *
*
The office of assessor we would like
to see filled by the democratic nominee,
Mr. T. P. McDonald, in preference to
the nominee of the republican ticket
Mr. Emmons. Notwithstanding the
fact that Mr. McDonald is the wrong
stripe in politics to suit our convictions
we believe he w ould make a good as
sessor. He is a widely know n citizen
of Park county, is well posted on all
her resources and values and has once
assessed the property of her citizens as
assessor of Gallatin county. We hope
that the voters of Park county will be
stow their suffrages upon Mr. Mc
Donald.
* *
The candidates for the remainder of
the offices—John Clifford for probate
judge, T. 8. Carter for public adminis
trator. Dr. W. T. Collins for coroner,
Miss Brunette Ballinger for superin
tendent of schools and 8. Deutsch for
surveyor—need no praise or comment.
They will receive the full party vote at
least, and we think many of the demo
cratic votes, for they are beyond re
proach and are well qualified for office,
