Anact passed by the Legislature and^approved Dec. 13th, contains important^cnoditions concerning Corj orations here^^after to be formed. Although its volumin^ous character permits but a brief sum-^marv of the principal provisions, in a^newspaper article, we shall before^long be enabled to present it complete^to our patrons in a desirable shape to^transmit or retain as a reference. It^provides that at any time after its ap^proval, *ny three or more persons may^form a company corporate for any in^^dustrial pur|*^ee, by filing with the^county clerk, of the county wherein it^is designed to operate, and in the office^of the Secretary of the Territory, dupli^^cate certificates, duly acknowledged,^stating the name, objects, amount ot^stock, term of existence (not to exceed^twenty years), number of shares, and^trustees with their names and the name^ot the place wherein the operations of^the eor|*^rati^^n are to be carried on, the^trust^ es to manage the affairs of the first^tare*' months. The certificate, certifier!^I by the Secretary under the Territorial^I teal, shall be preserved by him and be^the evidence of the corporation, prima^[facia evidence in any court of justice,^|ud by that name they and their succes^^sors be capable of suing and being sued,^of acquiring by purchase, pre-emption or^otherwise ; hold or convey any real or^Ipersonal estate necessary for the pnr^Ipotes named in the certificate, and shall^kave a common seal of the corporation.^|The certificate shall state whether the^I business of the company is to be carried^on outside of the Territory, and the^Ipliee. The trustees not less than three^|or more than nine, and stockholders in^the company shall after the first three^Imonths be elected annually by the stock^^holders, ten days notice having been^[given of the election in the nearest news-^Ipaper, provided one half the stock is^npnaented, that each ballot shall rep-^psent a share, and the largest lumber^lot ballots shall elect. Vacancies to be filled^Ueeording to By Laws of the company.^[The trustees have authority to call in^robscriptions at such times as they deem^not to exceed 20 per cent in any^oue month.

The stock of the compa-^^hall be deemed personal estate and^ckholders shall be individually liable^creditors of the company to the^)ont of unpaid stock held by them^ctively, lor all contracts made by^company until the whole amount of^tock shall be paid in, one half thereof^^ne year, and one half in two years^p^^n date of incorporation, or said cor-^wation shall be dissolved.

The Legisla^^ture may amend or repeal this act, but^not impair any rights acquired or reme^^dy given against the company for any^liability previously incurred. Any sol^^vent company heretofore existing, may^diminish or increase its stock and ex-^extend or cliange its business, and avail^itself of this act by complying with the^following provisions : A notice shall be^published at least six weeks in the^nearest newspaper, signed by a major^^ity of the trustees, specifying the object^of the meeting, its time, place, and the^amount ot capital provided a copy there^^of to be mailed to each stockholder, six^weeks previous to the time of meeting.^A two thirds vote of the stock being^necessary to effect the change, and a^certificate to be filed as in a new organ^^ization. The Record and Transfer books^to be kept open for public inspection.^Among the restrictions in the details of^the-act, it is provided that any company^collecting toll on a road not in good re^^pair, incur a penalty ot $10 to $25 and a^Justice shall in such cases issue an or^^der prohibiting the collection of toll un^^til it is in good repair. On bridges, toll^roads or ferries, of companies formed^unde^ this act, the county Commission^^ers shall fix the rate of toll. It gives^tunnel companies 1,100 fe^ton each side^of said tunnel, on all lodes discovered^by them while excavating, and the right^ofway through all previously discovered.^Companies constructing a road, ditch,^flume, bridge, ferry or telegraph line,^shall commence work within sixty days^and complete it within two years. The^act further elaborately describes the^manner in which companies may incor^^porate under this act, or dissolve those^existing under it The act of Congress^prohibiting the granting of special priv-^eleges or private charters by Territorial^Legislation, authorizes general incorpor^^ation aets, in accordance with which^this was enacted, and it is one of the^most important of the session. Its^practical workings will doubtless devel^^op the necessity for amendments, bpt in^its general principles we believe it is^calculated to meet the requirements of^the Territorv.
Thesurvey of Montana established the^fact that our county lines were not only^wholly imaginary, but that our imagina^^tion terribly distorted their size and^shaj^e. Beaverhead county extended^some thirty minutes eastward of its sup^^posed limits, and included Virginia City,^leaving Madison but a narrow, dwarfed^and cityless strip of country. To defin^^itely locate the county lines, a bill was^introduced in the legislature defining^natural boundaries, as nearly ^s possible^for Deer Lodge county, and was amend^^ed to also define the boundaries of Bea^^verhead and Madison. By an inadver^^tency in the drafting of the bill, over^^looked by the members from Madison.^Deer Lodge came down across the moun^^tain, following the Bighole and Jefferson^rivers, and gobbled Rochester gulch and^Silver Star district, separated from Deer^Lodge by an impassable range, which^can only be avoided by a circuitous^route, necessitating nearly a hundred^miles travel to reach the county seat.^This had heretofore been a part of Mad^^ison, and the new order of things would^have involved endless annoyance and^confusion in the matter of records. The^matter having been brought to the^attention of the Legislature after the^law had been approved some weeks, they^passed an act amendatory, extending^he lines of Madison county across the^river, making the northeast corner at^the base of Table Mountain, extending^thence east and south for the boundaries^between Madison Deer Lodge and Bea^^verhead. a motion was made by Mr.^Edwards to reconsider the vote by which^the amendment was passed, but on an^examination of the affair, the amend^^ment became a law. Madison loses a^strip of some ten or twelve miles in^width on the western boundary, the line^now extending due north and sosth from^Beaverhead Rock. The Jefferson river^is now the northern boundary to the^mouth of Boulder. The eastern and^southern lines remain as before.
Thebill removing the capital of Col^^orado from Golden city to Denver, pro^^vided in section 5, that when the Gover^^nor gave the House in which it origi^^nated, notice of its approval, the Legis-^lature should stand adjourned to meet^at 2 p. m. of the succeeding day at Den^^ver, and they did accordingly.
Thosewho have read in the 'Jribune^or Post the letter o'Col. a. K. McClure^in regard to the Indian Policy wh'ch is,^and that which should be, pursued by^the Government, unfortunately for the^West two very different things, will^heartily endorse the action of the Leg-^slature in passing a series of resolutions^embodying the suggestions contained in^the letter referred to. and enunciating^them as the settled and firm convictions^of the people of Montana on the Indian^question. If resolntions like these were^passed by the Legislatures of the several^Territories and addressed to the Con^^gress of the United States, they would^certainly have great influence in shap*^ing the Legislation of Congress, which^now threatens to dismember our Terri^^tory, cut off from travel the nearest,^best, and most direct route from Mon^^tana to the States, and locate on the^confines of our settlements an implaca-^bable and deadly foe to our peace, pros^^perity, and industrial pursuits. The^resolutions also submit the propriety of^abolishing Indian agencies, and the^transfer of the Indian Bureau to the^War Department where it rightly should^be. They recite the inefficiency of posts^and the military commands on the^plains to protect travellers, or accom^^plish any effectual good. They con^^demn the so called peace treaties, dis^^claim a hostile feeliog toward Indians^not at war against the pioneers, and^urge the Government in case of attack^upon settlements, to organize forces^composed of pioneers, to conquer peace^by the only successful method, as pro^^ven by all past experience, vigorous and^victorious warfare. The initiative step^to these resolutions was made by Mr.^Gallaher, offering a resolution endorsing^the policy advocated by Col. A. K. Mc^^Clure in the New York Trilmie. While^the subsequent vote and the speeches^of the gentlemen were conclusive, that so^many of them as had read the letter re^^ferred to, heartily agreed upon the pol^^icy avowed therein, yet, the rather^vague method of a Legislative body^avowing its position on an important^qnestion by referring to a newspaper ar^^ticle, and an unwillingness on the part^of some three or four members, to give^the endorsement of a Democratic Legis^^lature to anything written by a Repub^^lican, or even as individuals, to recog^^nize and acknowledge that the letter of^Col. McClure was the most comprehen^^sive, and able exposition ot the views of^western men upon the Indian question^that has been published prevented the^adoption of the resolution. In the first^objection to the resolution wo concur,^believing it proper that the resolutions^should express the views directly, in^^stead of by reference, but that spirit^which prompted an objection on the^part ot certain members, solely because^a clause complimentary to Col. McClure^was contained therein, and his political^views were not in harmony with those^of such members, if such men really have^any views, betrays a despicable narrow^^ness of soul, and a bigotry of disposition,^which we had believed no man could be^possessed of in these mountains, and^have sufficient strength to crawl into a^Legislative body. It is such selfish par-^tizanism that makes politics a school of^intrigue, a sickening corruption, and a^filthy pool; a field of ambition where the^manlier and nobler instincts must be^sacrificed to the base, ignoble and de^^grading propensities ; where the better^is extravagantly given for mizerly evil,^and power draws sustenance from cun^^ning craft to crush out honest merit.^Mr. Comly ^ did not propose to bolster^up Col. McClure^ for he had made Re^^publican speeches, and Mr. Bo3well^^ never would endorse anytbirg that^appeared in the New York Tribune.''^There is a specimen of Legislative wis^^dom, virtue, political honesty and far^sighted shrewdness. The one afraid^that Col. McClure would want office in^Montana, the other that when he want^^ed office again the Tribune endorsal like^a black nightmare would smother his^expectations of greatness. There is no^man in Montana who less needs the en-^dorsal of the Legislature of Montana, or^who would find less use for it in politi^^cal life, than Col. McClure, and so far as^endorsing snything in the Tribune Is^concerned, the letter ot Col. McClure in^^voked the most vigorous but respectful^hostility of Greeley. It is due to Col.^McClure to say that he knew nothing of^the resolutions whatever, until after^they were suggested, written out and^introduced by Democrats and discussed^in the House, and that he solicited the^omission of his name in that connection.^Still it would have been but a deserved^acknowledgment on behalf of the Legis^^lature of the letters of the gentleman in^tae most influential jouraaTs of the east,^giving to the world a description of the^resources of Montana, its advantages,^wealth and requirements, as no other^writer has ever done, and the effects of^which wrll come in golden blessings on^Montana after he has left it forever, to^have done themsel ves honor and him j no^^tice in suitable resolutions, which would^hive met the heartiest concurrence ot^the people and press of Montana.

It has long been a mystery that^Chicago, the most enterprising commer^^cial city of the West, permitted her most^powerful rival, St. Louis, to virtually^monopolize the trade of the Upper Mis^^souri without an effort to secure that^which is at present important, promises^to be more so in the future, and which^she may possess. It is, therefore, not^unexpected that we find a company or^^ganized, with the principal office at Sioux^City, and branches in New York, Boston,^Chicago and St. Louis, proposing to run^a line of steamers from Benton to Sioux^City, there connecting with the Chicago^^ Northwestern Railway, saving a thou^^sand miles of river navigation, lessening^time of transportation and reducing^rates. The line of steamers will be put^on early in the spring and will undoubt^^edly secure a large proportion of freight^and passenger patronage. The line will^open up communication with Chicago,^and that town will hereafter struggle for^the Montana trade. The company is un^^der the control of enterprising men,' and^has ample capital to make it successful.^For address of offices, see advertisement^of Chicago, Sioux City and Fort Benton^line.
