required upon the jury." "Any white
male person, of lawful age, a citizen of

lawyers, physicians, officers of the law,
editors, idiots, iinsate persons, and regu

Penalty of non-attendance not to exceed
$50. An act concerning descents and
distributions, provides the manner in
which inheritances of intestate persons
shall be distributed, legitimacy, etc. An
act to provide for the funding of the
debt of Montana, provides that the
Treasurer shall, on or before June 1st,
1868, issue interest bearing bonds for
all Territorial warrants outstanding and
unpaid Nov. 1st, 1867. For this purpose
he is authorized to issue, on the credit
of the Territory, coupon bonds not to
exceed $60,000, or so much thereof as
shall be required, redeemable at the
pleasure of the Territory after two years,
and becoming due at five years from
date. The bonds to be of the denomi
nation of $50 and $100, bearing 15 per
cent interest in greenback&, payable
semi-annually at the ofice of the Terri
torial Treasurer, or the principal and in
terest shall be payable at a deignated
bank in New York City, if the holders
shall so elect and give notice to the
Treasurer. Holders of warrants are an
thorized to fund their warrants in such
manner as prescribed in this act. One
thousand dollars, or so much thereof as
may be required, is appropriated from
the funds of the Territory to carry out
these provisions. Twenty-five per cent.
of all moneys received by the Treasurer
shall be set aside for the purpose ot pay
ing the said interest, and any surplus
shall be set aside for a sinking fund to
redeem the bonds. Whenever, after
two years from the issuance of the bonds.
the sum in the hands of the Treasurer
shall exceed $2,000, he shall publish a
notice to that effect in two newspapers
of Montana, naming by number the
bonds he is prepared to redeem, giving
preference to the oldest issue, and on a
failure on the part of the holders to pre
sent the same for redemption within 30
days, the interest on said bonds shall
cease; but the Treasurer shall hold him
self in readiness to redeem them when
ever thereafter presented. An act
amen-latory of an act to provide in
creased compensation for certain officers
of the Territory, gives the G(overnor
$2,:500 per annum from the Tertitorial
Trea;sury, and relceals that portion granL
ing extra compensation to the Judg,.s
of the Suprº-me Court.
TO THE LEGISLATURE.
The present Montana Iegislature is
unanotiloul'y Detmocra:tic. The Pc,:ST is
unauimrnousl Rp,ublican. Those ,o one
poiitical faith are predisposed to look
1on)0n with as i4cin,n and arccpt as sOlmie
thing to lie c;llmbiatted, any p)ro)position
.n;Ianating ftolt the oipposito party. In
consideration of this fact, powerless as
\'t" cnce.iV le )rlE I(''cº- ( t. In to influence
hle-islatlitn, and not dt~-iring to waste
w, rds in fetilt, effort, we have had but
little to 3at ccerning the actions of
that ,bdy1 , and what we have said we
trnst has ~een in a spirit that entitles to
respectful cornsidhri:tion, the following :
It is probably an adl:itted fact that, the
l.gislature of Montana is subordinate,
to the Congr:-ss of the United States,
and that acts passed by t he former in
contravention of the laws of the United
States are null and void. The recent
re-turn of a franchise bill from the
House to the Council, with a copy of the
Orfanic Act. forbidjing the passage of
such bills, is an adrui-sion that such fact
is acce'pted by the House, while the
('ou::cil has tacitly conceded the point
in mcmeorializing C'ongraess to) grant the
utt'hri v under wh:i,'.i the Territory
lov hrti,.nei a State. lWe tmake no aio1l
ely tor r terrilag to thesei' instances.
The'y are one side of the case. It will
al.so ,,. conceded- that tithe passage of
acts cntllaining p)rovisi(:ns important to
the welfare and jprosperity of the people
of this Terri;ory. and ,m'lfloliying in theim
other provisions that mutst inevitably
destroy the whole, is. if an inadvertan
cy, one that should be at once remedied,
and if intentional, an act of folly that
no partisan predilections or individual
inclinations would justify or atone for.
Montan:t has had her laws annulled
once. Do you desire to invoke a com
p!ete or partial annulment of the laws
of this scesion ' It has been charged that
the Republican party, because Congress
sustained the decision of the Supreme
Courts of Montana, is responsible for the
annulment act. That issue is not a
part of the present question, but we give
the Fourth Session of the Montana Leg
islature fair warning, that a failure to
amend certain acts that have passed and
been approved at this session, will as
surely as fate result in a declaration
of nullity that will be sustained by the
highest authority in the land, and the
Democratic party will be held responsi
ble. Council bill No. 20 being an act
to amend " an act regulating the hold
ing of elections in Montana Territory"
approved Jan. 17th, 1865, reads as fol
Be it enacted by the legislature of Montana
Sac. 1, That section 1 of said act, be so
amended as to read as follows that all
white male citisens of the United States,
and those who have declared their intention
to become citisens, above the agy of twenty
one years shall be entitled to vote at any
election for delegate to Congress and fo Ter
ritorial, county and precinct oaces, provided
they shall have resided in the Territory twen
ty ays and in the county ten days where
they offer to vote, next preceding the day
This act was approved by the Gov
ernor Nov. 22d 1867. Now read this:
Be it enacted by the Senate sad House of
Representatives of the Unitedtates of Ame.
ica in Congress assembled, that from sand after
the passage of this act, " there shall be no
denial of the elective franchise in any of the
Territories of the United States, now orhese
after to be organised, to any citisen thereol
on account of race, color, or previous
condition of servitude; aad all acts or part
of acts, either of Co~nress orhe Igltive
assemblies of said Territories, inumeisteat
with the provisiom of this act are hereby de
eared all and void.
Thb abovmebe a law Jan. 4th
1867 It will be observed that laws r
pDrt of laws, presr e' º andirteo a
with the provisions of that act are d
lared mall sad void, sad that the bill
declares thereafter " tAere shall be no de
nial." Franchise is a privilege granted to
certain persons. A failure to bestow
that privilege upon any class of people
isa virtual denial of the privil, ge, and
in contravention of the letter and spirit of
UTited States law. The Legislature of
Montana has not only enacted a nullity
bet passed an act of wilful defiance of
the Government. We ask what object
is to be attained by it ? Do you expect
Congress to recede from its position ?
Let the ten States now in process of re
coestruction, be your eloquent answer.
Is It to gratify party spleen ? Who vot
ed you last year $33,000 to defray your
Territorial expenses? Who voted you
$I40.000 to erect a penitentary ? Who
did you memorialize the other day to
pay the expenses of your Indian Expe
dition $1,100 000 ? Who do you look to
to endorse the $75,000,000 bonds for the
Notth Pacific Railroad to develop and
aid your Territory more than any other?
Who did you ask for authority from to
frame a State constitution ? Congress.
Do you expect defiance to beget kind
ness? What can you gain by it ' We
have not referred to this before, because
deeming it an inadvertance we presumed
it would be corrected. We know now
that members have been approached on
the subject and there is no disposition
evinced to amendi it. If this Legislature
adjourn with that ena:ic:men r,,ln:. ining
as it is upon the stat m.we books, it will
bring a train ot evils u,n the ''Territory
for which it will be r,.spousible. It is
not in the province of the, Legih-lative
assembly of Montana to detrmiine,
whether or not a law of tihe United
States is just or consriitutional. The
Letis!:iters have the laws before tlhc:_.
It is in their line of duty to abide by
them, not to decide upon them, al
though the House saw proper to adopt
the report ,:f thie Chairman of the Coin
nlittei ',n L" h'leral Relations. declaring
that the laws of the United States " in
full fore.- aonoiILr us and upheld by the
Supreme Court of the Territory. were ot
doubtful constitutionality." The same
spirit of hostility, is also evinced in an
act approved Nov. 27, concerning Jurors,
sec., 8, of which reads as follows :
Ay " whire" male per. on of lawful tge
who ue a citiarsn of the United Stat.s, a tax
pay~r eud a buna fide resident of the clanty
shtn I t compet-nt to -erve as am grand or trial
An eX'trlinatiOl of statutes enacted
ihereLtotfre, does not disctlw.e this dis
criZmink:L in in favor of " white" jurors.
W\'hy this proviso in the face of the ('iv
ii Rights Bill, and the pr-rcgativei of the
('ountV ('onlmiºsioners to coose whom
they may as jurors, tirm the assessors
booksY Would it not be well, in view
of the henelits asked at the hands of
that Governuient in which we occupy a
minor position, r,- uiring assistance,
and even now reaching out our hands for
money to render du,' respect and by obedi
enceto the laws, manifest our worthi
ne- 'to receive the sovereignty of a
State with its more extended power, lar
-per freedonm and ~rreater rnvnnnnahiliti.a
It is said that brevity is the soul of
wit but not of waggery if it is cur-tail
ment. True it is that since the Spartans
cultivated conciseness, and Pausanias
wrote sententiously, the most laconic
notes have been most famous and ad
mired. People like things concentrated,
*Homeopathy is gaining ground as well
in a verbal as an herbal sense. Billings
has it that " he does'nt care how much
a man says so he says it in a few words.,'
Caesar sent home the three " V's" from
Gaul. These were surer passports thro'h
the confines of Mortality than the ample
folios of Napoleon. Wellington im
proved it in " sail or sell" to an elaborate
application for leave of absence. Na
pier's "Peccavi" is unequalled even by
Grants "Push things." "Multum in
Parve" is a motto peculiarly sacred to
I minig regions. Their products are of
that character and it controls even the
idioms and slang of the mountains.
Gold is a condensed representative of
I value; " Git" has all the expressiveness
a volume of advice to depart could con
tain. Condensity is a desirable attain
met and we hall onciseness in official
commanleations as we do a man who
talks business in a minute in business
homns. If language was made to conceal
thought, few words favor frankness.
For these reasons we like the style of
the following communications. Mr.
Ming was appointed Auditor and is the
present incumbent. Under a late law
the Legislature elected his successor,
