Klll-l HAITI.h AT III,. ^ItOX.
Tbegentleman said. A condition of af^^fairs existed in Montana which in hisoiiln^ion demanded legislative attention. The^log huts of the early pioneers, tin- miner,^and the hunter, had given place to heauti^ful homes, in which morality, culture ami^lehueiueiit reigned sup:eiue. A change^had occurred in the old order of^ovi its. rransrohtim ntal roadst now^etoaaed ami recrossed the territory,^bringing in their wake the desirea and im^pulses of an older and moie thoroughly de^^veloped civilu itniii. Socudy waa rapidly^crystali/.ing and the vices, which in earlier^days oaaSM unheeded, could no longer be^accounted tor hy Jest or sneer. To tbe^credit o| Molilalia it could he said that her^legislators hail endeavored to keep abreast^and ahead of the dnlt of public thought.^In tin- statu es passed by the legislature m^Itsnr.o k so long ago as lso4 such games as^^chuck loch^ and ^high ball^ had been^ahaolotch prohibited In the volume of^laws poollabed in 1871-1 was found the^ftaniestatul prohlMtUoj certain games In^IR7V On-1v cnm|iiiation contained the
Minerestin tive law. lly if 1 ot the legist*^lure in l^vlaw oiiieudirig ^in-
tloi. k, Ni.. g0| revised statu es^was passed and a license permitted tor cer^t Ua MONO Which had been prohibited hy^prev HHIf acts h it a proviso, saying that the^art shou;d i ,,t permit the licensing of^games prdilhlted, In the compilation of^|ks7 we hud th.il a law was enacted pro^luhitlng certain games again, yet within^twent) four hours the legislature passed a^law relet!eg to licenses ami in that law au^thortxed Ihe very games prohibited the day^i^ lore 'Phis lleenee law again contained^a proviso to the eibvt that It should Ml I^^construed to pet mil prohibited games. In^Sept. |s^7atan extra session* by another^lic^-hs^- Uw, these same prohibited laws^were licensed. The opinion of lawyers^was divuh-d ami the county attorney of^Lewis and Clarke officially held (hat owing^to bungling legislation the games could he^play id under tin laws. The opinion was^generally concurred in, although MM at^^torney s still think the games are not prop^^erly licensed and the learned chief Justice^ol the terntorry advised a grand Jury to^impure into gambling and sue If it was^legally conducted l lu re w.is no ^juestion^as to the adv isability of the measure, a^great wave of puhllc sentiment had an^nounced the wishes of the people in tones^that could not he disregarded. A deplora*^ble condition ot affairs now existed in Hel^^ena and Hutt*1. I'mler tfie opinion of the^county a torn- y licenses had he.-n issued^for all sorts of games, with the result that^a most dangerous gang of rufliaus^now Infested tbe two cities. UoMlOMOJ^from the outside districts asked that a^hounty law might he passed for the pro^tertiou of their calves and sheep. He^asked that a bill l*^ enacted that would^protect the homes of the people. As to^the proposed amendment he w as opposed^to It, Itelievtng it would encuinher the bill,^and delay its passage. A great good^might be accomplished by the proposed^measure and as a matter of expediency he^did not deem it advisable to encumber the^measure with unnecessary baggage. He^believed in taking the barnacles ot^ one at^a time rather than to try to take them all^off together and | i i v aceomolish no^practical results. He did not deem It feasi^^ble to add faro and table poker to the list^of orohlMtod games. 1'as* this measure as^it now stands and then bring In a separate^bill for covering the ground proposed by^the amendment.
Comfort,the representative from Madi^sim, heartily endorsed the measure so far^as it went, hut in his opin on it didn't go^tar enntitfh. He thought the time had^come in the history of Montana when ail^gambling should be prohibited by law. He^saw little difference between a fair game of^taro aud a ^sure thing^ game of any kind^It in an honest game of faro a man won, he^as certainly returned to try his fortune^again ami in the end the ^bank^ got tm-^iiioney. Any laws permitting gambling^were a disgrace to the territory and be^(bought they should be wiped from the^statute books.
Murrayendorsed the amendment and^believed the people of the territory would^en lorse a measure absolutly prohibiting^gamh lug In any form, lie thought the^measure Introduced by Hunt a very short^step m advance of previous legislation. It^might drive the soft lingered gentry from^Helena and Hutte, but there the results of^the law would practically end: blue Jay and^other gamea of the kind were not played^to any extent In the other towns or camps^of the territory, lie believed tnat the fair
nessof the game faro rested entirely with^the dealer. If that personage haupeiied to^be an honest man an honest^game was play ed. If the^part y. however. I a p MMi to^to be a tilcksler It was only necessary to^touch a sprmgor properly manipulate the^cards to mske It a ^sure thing^ game. He^had taken the trouble, since the measure^was announced, Ut address all classes of^people among his constituents ss to their^opinion of the gambling question. His^own opinions were distinctly understood,^but as he represented s district he endeav^^ored to represent a district and not a class.^A gent,.-mi not M **ouia who had formerly
11 a gambler and was now In the saloon^business desired a sweeping law or none at^all. others in the same business^had expi eased similar opinions. It^looked to bun as If the proposed^measure was a petition from the^^high toned^ gamblers that sal in richly^appointed nanus arid dealt their game, to^prohibit the ^sure thing^ men from play-^toy their viration to the end that the mom y^squandered would drill into their coffers.^He asked that the aiiiwfuiuierit be passed In^the Interest of the gamblers themselves,^who were tired and disgusted with a busl^ness thai brought only remorse and ruin^There was no member of the bouse or citi^101 of He ena, Hutte or Missoula who^would not endorse the sentiment thai^gambling should ta* wiped out. such being^the case who was to hinder the execution^of the law. Would it !^^ the ^tin horn''^gamrder, ot (he ^fraternity ^ at large.
Hlakeleyhoped Hie amendment would^not prevail lie thought the bill MOOjOOsd^by Hunt a thoroughly good OOA If would^do much to cheek an existing evil. If he^was a friend to the gambling interest and^wanted to kill the bill he would offer just^such an amendment as had ween promised.^As to swindling st faro he had no doubt^that it was done, but if he was not seri^^ously mistaken more or less swindling was^done in all walks of dfe. If a bill passed^to slop open gambling men would goto^private room* to indulge the pleasure, and^it was in such places, so tar as his expert^ence went, that men were swindled, l.et
usdo as much fc-i as we can ami not
stranglethe hill.
.loslynemphatically op|mscd the^amendment. In Ids opinion ll wsa folly to^pass a lull (list would not prove effective in^Mjuelchltig this evil. The eastern states^had laws absolutely prohibiting gambling,^but It suy one desired to gamble he had^only tii go to a hotel clerk and inquire in^order to find an apart merit well furnished^with all the appliances for almost any^game. Which was the better, toojteuly li^eeojN games which were as fair aa any^thing in that line ever is, or to have them^played iu violation of law.

Davismoved that (he committee arise^Motion lost. Mantle approved the amend^mi nt, la living that the end desired by its^supporters would not la* accomplished.^Id- thought the parties advocating il did so^ffSJOJ principal, but practically II would re^suit in accomplishing nothing. The object^they desired to attain could he 01001 hied in^a separate bill and w ha' was the necessity^ot endangering the lM-nding measure.
Davisstated that he heartily approved^the bill, and that bis motion that the com^mlltee ailse was done for the purpose of^giving the adv-icates of the amendment nn^opportunity to express their views. For^his part lie was afraid it would ustorfere^with the effective operation of the hill.

It la also entirely out of^debt and has o gissl balance m the treasury,^winch Is a very encoursirmg showing when^it Is comld' red that the K. of L. of Mon^^tana were Mt.Usriti dent two years ago^by reasonof the Tlmberllne rosl miners'^strike, six new atseijiDlies have b^^'n or^^ganized within the year,^o.'ir ot the first Seta of tfie ......ting after
theregular business was di^|H^*cd of was^to pass a resolution unanimously, eudors^mg (he administration of T. V. I'owdVrly,^pledging themselves to uphold bis every^official set. I fie prevailing sentiment to^^wards Thomas K. Harry was discarding^him as alrsi^or snd black sheep, and that
iteras tor Hit* f1 ^ f the order to be rid
ofsuch members as he.
Duringdie session the laws pending In-^troduction or pasisge in the present legis^^lature were considered, and any which^tended to benefit toe public welfare were^endorsed. I'ttrtlcnlary was the Australian^system of voting discussed and by unani^^mous vote it was ib cided to l^e a great and^good system, and the meeting hoped It^would i^* paaoed; also any stringent regis^tration law that would make the ballot^pure. Intimidation of voters was de^^nounced. Hunt's gambling bill was gen^^ rally favored hy the Knights, and wlille^(hey considered it not far reaching enough,^it was looked i,p,,n as a go^M| step in the^ight dllsotUm, and lufhciently gtsM^tor a starter, which would^ventually reaolt in wiping the evil out of^tletenoi in Montana. Sseveral mem^hers in commenting upon the measure ex-^pj^ teed tin opinion that Hon. William II.^11 unt aliowetl a more aggressive and in^trepid disposition, in championing such a^bill than bus been shown heretofore by^former Isw makers.
TheKnights of Lal^or ex|^evt a good deal^from the picBent legislature, but they par^^ticularly urgf the passage of a hill creating^the territorial oflire of mine inspector and^lesire to have the present mechanics' Hen^law amended as recommended hy petitions^(o the legislature now hi mg circulated^among the members. The proposed smend-^menl provldeo that the attorney's fees be^included iii the costs of the action against^the psrty u|M^n whom the hen is tiled. At^I resent (he workman has to bear the ex^OOOjOb of ftiiplnjiritf au attorney, whose^barges in many m-taire* amounts to as^much as the mechanic sues for.
Allmeasures that have been or may be^Introduced in the legislature, which tend^toward tin* attvithceuieiit of the public at^large, ami eapecmlly matters relating to^educational interests, are heartily endorsed^its the adocat ion ot the masses Is one of the^t undamental principles of the order.
(overtior Leslie's message to the b gisla^Mojo Mojo on for consideration during the^session and t he unanimous sentiment was^that he wss on honest and (air minded man^and when he wmte tin* document had the^interest of tho people and the territory at^heart. Ihe message was cordially en
dOt-ed
Theststchood ipiest on was brought up^and the order hoped that at nodistant date^Montana would Is* included Iu the sister^hood. WhiU- this sentiment prevailed it^was thought that the state constitution^adopted In lfe^4 Deeded revision in certain^matters, and before the constitution will be^ag^in submitted to a vote of the people the^needed chauw should so made known.
TheKnights advocated a measure and^hoped Um isjejtslaturo woold pass what is^la called the^ cooperative law, such as is^now In onjnoa in IVrinsylvsnia. Wisconsin,^Illinois. Minnesuta and other stages. This^taw dilbrs from the corporation law, In^that it gives small holders of stock In a^Mitnpeoy ao eqaal vote with those having^a controlling inn rest
Manyother matters of a private nature^were trsiisacted during the session which^was pronounced hy the delegates the most^I oleresting ^ et held. The meeting ad^lourned si * p- \esterday, to meet again^July ft, I - ^ at Livingston.
