Helena lobbies to be named state capital
Oria esteemed friend, the Western Democrat, sends this encouraging news to Helena: "The fight for the capital is growing hot among the aspirants for Its permanent location. In the meanwhile the people af Missoula are doing the heavy looking on and solid thinking." That is right. If all the voters in Montana will think seriously concerning this capital question, Helena will win in the first round. The voters who have the interest of the state at heart, who will vote for their own interests, throw aside prejudices and support the best town for the capital are invited to study IIelena's ad. vr.tages from any point of view. Try and think of one town that presents better claims. Look the field over carefully. 1Do not allow yourself to be intiuenced by aluminum or copper emblems but analyze the results of your observation. Is there a town more centrally located than Helena; one that offers more oplportunities for the transaction of busines of all sorts; that possesses nmore colnforts of life, or that is better adapted for the capital so far as your poersouul interests are concerned? The:se things have been told to the voters of this state very often, but they cover tie situation in a nutshell and certainly no other town or city in Montana can present the same offers. If there are any, let them speak up.
