GEO. H. WRIGHT, - - - Editor and Proprietor. OFFICIAL PAPER OF PARK COUNTY sud the City of Livingston. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1890. Entered at the poatofflce in Livingston, M. T. as second-class mail matter. REPUBLICAN TICKET. For Congress THOMAS H. CARTER. Register. Morey of New Hampshire intro duced in the house Monday a rule mak ing it an offense, punishable by a fine of 8500, for a member to absent himself for the purpose of breaking a quorum. The object of this rule is to compel the attendance of members and defeat the filibustering tactics of the democrats by which all legislation has been pre vented the past ten days. The voters of this district are regis tering very slowly. So far but little over 100 names appear upon the regis ter. Voters should not delay in attend ing to this important matter, as a fail ure to register will result in disfran chisement at the coming election. See to it that your name is upon the regis try books before October 15th, and in order to avoid possible failure attend to it at once. The repeal of the timber culture bill which recently passed the senate con tained a provision that the receiver receip's issued to a settler where no ad verse claim is pending shall be final, makes the offices of register and ceiver more important than ever be fore, for they alone will then pass upon the validity of a settler's final proof, This also will end a large amount or litigation that is caused by speci agents and envious neighbors, who at tack the settler's title after his proof has been made. The Helena board of trade has re ceived a communication from C. E Perkins, president of the Burlington & Missouri River railroad, in which that official gives them very cold comfort with regard to the proposed extension of that line by way of Castle to Helena It will now be In order for the Helena people to return to their first love and again attempt to induce the Northern Pacific to relieve them. But Living ston will secure the Northern Pacific branch to Castle and become the smelt ing point for the ores of that district as well as those of Cooke and other sur rounding districts. The president has signed the anti lottery bill making it a penal offense to sell or receive lottery tickets, to print lottery advertisements or send them by mail. The bill permits the government to seize communications sent to lottery banks. The enforcement of this law will prevent the use of the mails by the lottery swindlers and be effective curtailing their operations, even though legalized by the state of Louisiana. It will also make it extremely difficult for the managers to pay the million and a half dollars pledged to the state of Lou isiana for a renewal of the lottery char ter and probably defeat the effort for its renewal. Of great importance to the mining states and territories is Senator San ders' amendment to the bill repealing the timber culture law, adopted by the senate. The amendment provides that in all cases where prosecutions of civil or criminal nature are instituted against citizens in Montana, Idaho Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, North and South Dakota and the gold and silver regions of Nevada, that the party pros ecuted can justify his act of cutting timber by showing the court that he was a resident of the state or territory and that the timber cut was used or intended to be used for mining, manu facturing or other domestic purposes within the limits of the state or terri tory, and not for export beyond the borders thereof. The Washington dispatches bring the pleasing news that Congressman Carter will be enabled to secure the passage of the bill granting right of way to the Montana Mineral railway through the Yellowstone Park, as the chairman of the public lands commit tee and the speaker favor it. Of all the measures in behalf of Montana that Mr. Carter has labored for during the past session there is nothing of so vital importance to the people of this section as a bill securing to Cooke City the re quired right of way for railroad trans portation. It would open up and place among the mineral producers of Mon tana one of the most extensive dis tricts in the state and bring to the min ers of that locality, many of whom have spent the better years of a life time in developing their claims, a means for realizing the fruits of patient toil and the investment of a large amount of capital. We trust that our repre sentative will be successful in his ef forts in behalf of the New World dis trict, and that the bill will become a law at this session in spite of the dem ocratic filibusters who are blocking needed legislation by absenting them selves to defeat the presence of a quo rum. The democrats in the national house of representatives have adopted the ob struction tactics employed by their Montana brethren in the state senate last winter. Taking advantage of the lack of a quorum of republican mem bers, they have absented themselves during the past ten days from sassions of the house and effectually blocked legislation. An effort will be made to secure the return to Washington of enough of the absent republicans to ensure a quorum and finish up the bus iness of the session, so that the demo cratic filibusters will accomplish noth ing except to incur almost universal contempt. Their utter disregard of the duties for which they have been chosen will be a poor recommendation for re election and will furnish good cam paign material against the democratic party. To the end that the people may fully realize the true condition of af fairs, the republicans have had photo graphs in counterfeit presentment of if of to is T. in the two sides of the house taken for general distribution, the one side show ing the republicans in their places and ready for business with nothing but empty seats on the democratic side. Representative Carter is doing more effective campaign work by attending to his duties in looking after the inter ests of his constituents in Montana than ?an be counteracted by all the democratic orators in the state. Id ad dition to the long list of measures in the interest of Montana, published last week, he is continuing to make a favor able record by indefatigable labor. During the past week he has been be fore the secretary of the interior ai go ing against the removal of the sheep herds from the Crow reservation, in pursuance of the recent order of that department. It is more than probable that he will be successful in this effort and prevent an act of injustice to one of the important industries of the state Mr. Carter has not only been enabled to secure almost every important meas ure for which he has labored during the past session, but his increased pop ularity and acquaintance at the nation al capital will enable him to do more effective work, if that were possible, at future sessions. The people are there fore fully satisfied with their present representative and will see that he is returned by a much larger majority than was ever before given to any can didate from Montana. We this week reproduce the platform of principles adopted by the republican state convention, to which we call the attention of the voters of Bark county regardless of party affiliation. It is a straightforward and able documentand will commend itself to the electors of Montana as being in harmony with the best interests of the state. It is out spoken in its advocacy of protection to home industry, and in this particular directly antagonizes the democrats of Montana, who denounce all tariff as robbery and at the same time are forced to admit the great advantage to Mon tana by reason of the duty on wool and lead. If protection is bene ficial in fostering the industries of Mon tana, it is equally beneficial to indus tries throughout the country, and in justice one section is as much entitled to friendly legislation as another. The democrats of the state are therefore left to accept the ridiculous position of de siring government protection of their individual interests and opposing pro tection to all others, or m order to be consistent must oppose the duty on foreign wool and lead. Whichever horn of the dilemma the democratic party accepts, it places itself upon rec ord as unworthy the support and confi dence of the people. The same condi tion exists with reference to the silver question. The republican platform de clares for free coinage and refers with gratification to the long stride toward the accomplishment of their purpose by the recent republican measure that will utilize the entire production of the white metal in this country and has advanced the price to 1.16. On the other hand the democrats, while pro testing they favor free coinage, endorse the administration of Grover Cleveland who while president repeatedly recom mended the suspension of silver coin age and under whose administration the white metal was depreciated to 92 cents. Between the two platforms, sustained by the past records of the parties, the voters of Montana will be called upon to choose, and in view of the fact that the republican party is in perfect accord with every material in terest of the state it is not hazardous to predict an overwhelming defeat of the democrats in the coming contest. Press Comment. Salt Lake Tribune: We do not see anything that can keep silver from reaching a parity with gold in this country within the next two or three months. We believe, except for the money conjestion in New York, which has held that city in a state of alarm for the past three weeks, that silver would by this time have gravitated up to its place beside gold, and we join in the belief that the future of silver is now altogether bright. * * * Herald: The democrats of course applaud the action of the Texan bully who kicked his way out of the house to escape the performance of his sworn duty. The men who ran out of the stale last winter to avoid attendance upon their sworn duties as senators are equally deserving of applause. They fill the democratic ideal of statesman ship, and their actions call loudly for the approval of men who would do the same thing and call it manly. School children who behaved in such a fash ion would be spanked, and grown up boys, who are old enough to know bet ter, ought to be treated the same way and sent to bed without their supper. * « * When the democratic newspapers get through lying about the republican party and misrepresenting its evey act and utterance, it would be interesting if they would for a single issue donate some space to the enumeration of the achievements of the democratic party while it controlled the executive, and one of the legislative branches of the government from March 4, 1885, to March 4, 1889. What did the demo cratic party do or attempt to do to justify the promises it had previously made or the "blowing" they are now doing. Did the house pass a bill for the remonetization or free coinage of silver which its democratic mem bers now hypocritically claim to favor? Did it pass anything except the Mills bill in the interest of for eign labor and foreign manufactur ers and against every American in dustry? Did Cleveland do anything but fight silver, veto pension bills and applaud Sparks for declaring ninety five of the western people to be thieves? Let some of the free trade organs come to the front and tell what the demo cratic party has done to entitle it to the support of any honest citizen of the re public.—Inter Mountain. Washington special: On Saturday Senator Power went to the interior de partment to have some action taken re garding the apportionment of the ap propriation for surveys. The land of fice has made the apportionment, but it is not yet approved by the secretary, though Mr. Noble assured Senator Power that early action would be a to to of of in in the the of of sist the the the to the ted Î ts of tbe main from tbe state Ihe for Arm forth taken. Thç attempt Of the Montana , . , Ilien to get a large slice Of the survey in ing appropriation at the expense of other states ha3 engendered opposition to Sanders' amendment to the land bill. This amendment allows people in Mon tana to acquire title to 160 acres of tim ber lands and ends the prosecution of parties who have cut timber on govern ment lands. There is some retaliation threatened by the house members against this amendment unless there is a limit to the demands of Montana for surveying funds. Representatives from other states claim that the amount allowed to Montana, 875,000, is much greator than can be made use of. Thos. C. Platt, the great New York boss, ac companied by several members of the commission of which he is a member, is now on his way west in a private car to the Pacific coast This commis sion goes west for the purpose of locat ing a dry dock on the coast, presum ably on the sound. It means that navy yard will also be located at the place at no distant day. A navy yard site was selected last summer by similar commission, but it was so dis tasteful to the people of Washington that it has not since been considered and will have no weight in determining the choice of the present commission. Washington special: There is some speculation as to the creation of two additional circuit j udicial districts The Montana senators are figuring out which district would be the most satis factory to their state. It is expected that two new districts will be created Senator Dolph's amendment proposes that one district will be composed of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Mon tana, and Senator Davis has a bill to include, Montana, the Dakotas and Minnesota. The Montana men think they can go either way and are not quite sure. Senator Power would pre fer to go with the Minnesota district so as to get as far away from Judge Saw yer as possible. Senator Sanders thinks the Dolph district will be more sym metrical. It is more than likely that Wyoming will be made a part of the western district. Senator Ingalls pro posed to make the Pacific coast one cir cuit, but that will be opposed by Ore gon and Washington. Republic»!] Stale Platform. The republicans of Montana, represented for the first time in state convention, appealing with unabated confidence to the intelligehco and oa triotism of the people, submit this their declar ation of principles: We reaffirm the principles embodied in the republican national plattorm of 1888 and triuin phanily ratified by the people of the republic We ^endorse the administration of President Harrison and commend its wise and patriotic policies, its prompt and vigorous enforcement of the laws and the courage and dignity with w hich it has maintained under the brilliant statesman ship of James G. Blaine incite department of state the interests and the honor of the United States in its relation with foreign powers. We recognize that the right to a free and pure ballot is the right preservative ot all ri .Tits. Its denial to a vast cumber of citizens In a part of the union is a wrong aDd a reproach, not local nut national: and we urge upon our senators that they use their utmost exertions to secure the prompt passage of the federal election hill as re medy for the evil by which republican voters in the southern states* are counted as the basis of representation in congress and the electoral col .....d " elections. lege an«l then excluded from participation in the We recommend the liberal ne nsion laws that have been passed by the republicans in congress over the opposition of the democrats, and declare that no dollar is squandeered which is devoted to relieving the veterans who fought under the starry flag in the war for the preservation of the union We are opposed to all pools, trusts and com bines that deprive the people of the benefits of legitimate competition, and we favor stringent me isures for their suppression We proclaim our unchanged and unchangeable devotion to the doctrine of enconragement to home industries and protection to American labor, and we approve the action of the republi can majority in congress in extending its be neficent results by a wise and comprehensive re vision of the schedule of duties that shall at once lighten the burdens of taxation, promote the producing interests of the country and insure just compensation to the working-man. We rec ommend especially the proposed increase of the tariff on wool and the provision against the free importation of Mexican lead ores which has ex posed our miners to a direct competition with a class of laborers who are but little removed from a condition of slavery and greatly depressed the value of our lead product. In further promotion of the interests of the workingman, which is the primal purpose of the republican party, we demand the strict enforce ment of the laws forbidding the importation of Chinese and contract laborers, and favor the establisement of reasonable hours of labor, and all just measures that will tend to elevate the working classes, and enable them to secure homes for their families and so rear their child ren that they will become intelligent and en lightened citizens of the republic. We congratulate the people of Montana upon the legislation achieved by-republicans in con gress, securing the coinage of the entire silver product of the United States—a measure that was promptly vindicated in an advance of thirty per cent in the price oi the metal and an increase in the value of our mines so great as to defy calcu lation. The prediction of the enemies of silver being completely refuted by the practical oper ation of the law, we need only a republican ma jonty in the next congress to secure free coinage and fix the bullion value of the silver dollar at par with gold. While we welcome with unabated cordiality all persons of foieign birth who come to our shores to strengthen as well as to enjoy our freedom and prosperity, we recommend athorough revision of onr naturalization laws, to the end that the high privileges of American citizenship shall be con ferred only on those who are capable of appre ciating them, and withheld from those who tend to reduce the wages of labor, corrupt the sources of political power and lower the standard of our civilization. We regard with admiration and gratitude the manly action of Hon. Thomas B Reed, speaker of the house of representatives, in defeating the efforts of the democratic members to obstruct leg islation by outrageous ana revolutionary conduct and in destroying the absurd pretens that a mem ber of a parliamentary body can be absent and present at the same time. We deprecate an unjust and uncalled for abridg ment of the liberal policy of our government re specting the public domain, the withdrawal from settlement of large tracts of land in Montana un der authority of the act of Octoher 2,1888, and we endorse the action of our delegation in congress in insisting that they be reopened to entry by actual settlers. We demand that no patents be issued to the Northern Pacific railroad until it shall have been established, by indisputable affirmative proof, that the lands which (t claims are non-mineral in their character, and that the grant to that com pany be strictly construed, according to its letter and spirit, to the end that all mineral lands be reserved for entry nnder the provisions of the laws of the United States. We invite the attention of our senators and re presentatives in congress to the expediency of extending to Montana the provisions of the law which is now limited to the states of Oregon and Washington which permit the acquisition of timber lands on the public domain by purchase from the general government. We view with pride and gratitude the public servie s of Hon. Thomas H. Carter, our repres entative in congress, who has not only greatly promoted the interests of Montana by nis untir Ing efforts, eloquent advocacy and commanding Influence, but also won an honorable position among the distinguished s atesmen who adorn the councils of the nation. We recognize with unqualified approbation the diligence, fidelity and ability- with which lion. WilbnvF. Sanders and Thomas C. Power, our senators in congress, have upheld the principles of the republican party and guarded the interests of the state and the nation and declare that they have fully proved themselves worthy of the great trust that has been reposed in them by their con stituents. We recognize that onr public schools are at once our pride and our protection: and we in sist that tne lands granted to the state of Mon tana for educational purposes shall be scrupu lously preserved, sold only to actual settlers, and the proceeds strictly devoted to carrying out the objects of the endowment. We favor slrinjjpmt measures of legislation for the protection of the lives of miners and insist that the statutes for that purpose enacted by a re publican legislative assembly of Montana be made effective by the appointment of a fit and capable citizen as inspector of mines. We claim for the republican party of Montana that, in the passage of the registration law and the Australian voting system, it has proved itself to be the champion of the freedom and Dnrity of the elective franchise, and that all persons'who desire that every lawful voter should be permit ted to cast his ballot without tear and nave it counted without fraud must look for that con summation to the republican party. WhUe we recognize that the Australian voting law mav re Î iuire amendment so as to simplify the detafia of ts operation, we pledge the republican members of the legislative assembly to see to it that all ita essential provisions shall be preserved inviolate UDon tbe statute books of Montana. We congratulate the people of Montana upon tbe defeat of the monstrous fraud that was at tempted by tbe democratic party at precinct 34 of Silver Bow county. It has passed beyond tbe do main of discussion or doubt that the returns from that precta t were wholly fraudulent, and tbe thanks of all honest citizens are dne to the republican canvassers of Silver Bow eonnty, the state board of canvassers, the supreme conn and Ihe republicans in the senate of tne United States for effecting the overthrow of the criminal and Iniquitous conspiracy. We declare it to be the Arm purpose of the republican party that hence forth elections in Montana shall be honest ei pressions of the will of the people anil that all attempts at fraud upon the ballot shall be prose cnted until the prison doors shall have closed upon the offenders. of of is We arraign as a tyrannical and revolntionaiy usurpation of power the attempt of Governor Toole to violate the constitutional right of the house of representatives of the legislative assem bly to judge of the election, return and qualificr tions of its own members by designatin'.', witliot t right or authority, the place where it should meet, keeping the hall so designated under lock and key and a guard etationed at the entrance with instructions to admit none who were not provided with credentials issued in violation of the express provisions of the constitution. We applaud with enthusiastic approval the firm and manly action of the republican members of the state legislative assembly, and condemn the course of the democratic members, who, for narrow 1 partisan purposes, prevented the legisla tion that was greatly needed to put in operation the machinery of the state government, deprived laborers of their just wages, left our public insti tutions without funds to detrav their necessary expenses, embarrassed all the functions of state hood and worked irreparable damage to the sub stantial interests and to the good name of Mon tana. We denounce the democratic party of the Unit ed States for its want of patriotism, lor its infi delity to the workingmen of America, for its crimes against the ballot box, for its antagonism t ) the essentials of freedom, equality and nation al unity, for its ready championship*of the most mischievous political and economic heresies, for its policies of obstruction and retrogression, and especially for its relentl ss hostility to the inter ests of the great new west. While the republican party is comprehensive in its principles and na tional in its policies, and peculiarly calculated to advance the welfare and prosperity of the vast section of the Union of which Montanais apart. In proof of this we cite the action of the present republican national administration ami rcpubli can congress. They have added immeasurably to the value of our output of precious metals, thus assuring just wates to laborers engaged in the mining industry, and an abundant a id remunera tive market for products of agriculture; they have given additional protection to wool, to thé great advantage of an important interest: by ad mitting the territories of Idaho and Wyoming they have aided in moving westward the center of political power; in Montana they have created two additional laud districts, to thé material con venience of the people of the western and north ern parts of the state; they have reduced the Crow Indian reservation and opened TOO,IKJO acres to settlement and improvement; they have in creased considerably the sum to be expended in the survey of public lands within our limits, and they have contributed largely in all respects to the harmonious development of all the interests of Montana and the west. Pointing to t:i is rec ord and contrasting it with that of the demo cratic party, we appeal to the whole people of Montana, without respect to previous political associations, to insure the maintenance of these results by giving their support to the party that advances to victory on the pathway of justice, progress and prosperity. Return ol the Favorites. The charming young favorite, Miss Caroline Gage, supported by Harry F. Keene's well known company of players, who played a week's engagement here about a year and a half ago, will return to Livingston for a week, commencing Monday, October 6th. Miss Gage made herself a great favorite with theatre goers on the occasion of her former visit, as did also the entire Keene com pany, and it is with sincere pleasure that we announce their return to Liv ingston. The company is made up of the same people as when they were last here and are playing entirely new pieces. Fowlie's hall will be fitted up for the use of the company, and a large stage will be built, which when hung with the special scenery now carried by the company will present a very comfortable and theatre-like appearance. We pre diet for the beautiful Miss Gage and her company a highly successful return engagement. The price of admission will be 81 to any part of the house, with no extra charge for reserved seats, which will be on sale at Peterson's pharmacy. Stockholder)* Meeting. The first annual meeting of the stockholders of the Mamie Mining company will be held at the office of the company at Big Timber, l'ark county, Montana, on Tuesday, October Tth, 1890, at one o'clock p. m., for the election of the board of trustees and such other business as mav com before the meeting.
