Amhkdiv,to Col. Julian Allen, of^SUteHville, N. ('., there can be no longer^any question aa to Jamea 0. Blaine^being secretary of state over den. Harri^^son. Jt can readily he believed, from^what Is known of Mr. Blaine, ttiat If Seal^Harrison ^cordially tendered him ttie^secretaryship^ he ^am-pted It in the^aame spirit.^ Had It been tendered to^tiim reluctantly he would still tiave ac^^cepted it ^in the same spirit.^ There's^nothing mean about Hlaine when it^cornea to helping a president save the^country by holding down an otttce. It^must be remembered In this connection,^however,that Col. Julian Allen,of States-^ville, N. I'., is an eiposition promoter,^an t those who tiave had any relation*^with men of his particular business will^wait for continuation before accepting^his statements.
Thkbill to permit mortgage and safe^deposit associations to he formed is a^measure which virtually amends our in^^corporation laws now on the statutes.^These present statutes are very inroin-^plete|aud contemplate ^trust, depo-it and^security a*hociationH,^ but do not n atrial^them or provide for their |M^wers or re^^sponsibilities in any complete way.^Chapter *_'s of the compiled laws of Mon^^tana is all there is on the subject. The^bill i- one introduced by Mr. Hunt by^rtJjMBt of Helena men, and is nearly^identical with a similar bill which^passed one branch of the legislature two^years ago hut which failed of enactment^lu the hurry of concluding the session.^Mr. Hunt, when asked about the Herald^article, said he sincerely hoped that if^there was any ^giant monopoly^ in it or^any provision which would crush tmy^one, that it would be defeated, and tie^would himself vote to kill It if upon con^^sideration anything was discovered in^the measure which could possibly impair^the rights of any one. Mr. Hunt has no^Interest, direct or Indirect, in it, but^will let It stand ou Its own merits. It^Is certain that amendments to ttie pres^^ent law are needed, or outside capital^will not come into Montana.
whichshould be cured iu a proper codi^^fication of the statutes. It certainly is^not reasonable to suppose that the law^contemplated the payment of fees to at^^torneys unless some corresponding ser^^vice was rendered, the more particularly^because, as Mr. Keene has said, there h^no provision in the statutes requiring^Justices to report to county attorneys.
SENATORSON IHHIQATION.^A dispatch from Washington, speaking^of Senator Stewart'-* resolution provid^^ing for a select committee of senators to^be known as the committee on irriga^^tion and reclamation of arid lands, re^^ports that the proposition meets with^great favor among senator*, who recog^^nize the fact that nearly all the remain-^iug public land-* require irrigation to be^made available for agricultural pur^^poses and homes. A great deal in the^direction of irrigating can he done by^the states and territory most directly^interested. Independent ^ f the action of^the general government. The latter^will probably routine Itself to surveys^for resenolrs ami to eiperimental work,^such as lri^ring artesian wells In the^arid belt, while Montana and territories^similarly situated will be left to work^out for themselves the details of the plans^suggested by ttie national government.^It is. however, encouraging to learn from^the dispatch in question that leading sen^^ators, both republicans and democrat-,^have eipressed a willingness to serve on^the proposed committee, which, If it Is^created, will tiave leave to sit during ttie^congressional recess and report to the^senate at the next regular session, In^December, what legislation Is necessary^for the work In contemplation.
COUNTYATTORNEY8' FEES.^The Independent has received copies^of a correspondence between the county^attorney of Meagher county and 11. L^Keene, justice of the peace at ^'antou,^which shows the faultiuess of the stat^^utes in relation to the collection of fees^by county attorneys. On the 1Mb ult.^C. W. Jones, county attorney, addressed^the following letter to Mr. Keene:
Und^r aection H47, 5th division, page^K70 ot the compiled atalutes of Montana,^you will tax an attorney's tee of $13 in all^raaea of mt*denieanor where a conviction^la had and In every preliminary examina^^tion whrtiier 1 am present to conduct (lie^caae ^^^ not Where coat* are paid you will^please forward my fees to me on tbo 1st^and 15-h Insta. of each month. At the^aame time where costs are to be taxed^against the county you will please give me^a statement of the case (giving title, crime^charged, date of conviction, and penalty),^so aa to enable me to render my bill to the^county commissioners.
Mr.Keene replied, under date of Jan.^-M a- follows:
Oaexamin itlon of the statutes you refer^to i rind the law a little lam**, hot in my^opinion your construction of Itis much more^so. 1 can find nothing in ttie statutes in^structlug me or any other justice to pay fom^one cent or to give you a statement of any^case. 1 therefore deem it unjust to com^^ply with your request.
Thestatute which Mr. Jones cites pro^^vides that county attorneys may collect^fees ^for each conviction in case of mis^^demeanor, $.1; for each preliminary ex^amlnatlon, |o;M but the phraseology of^tite succeeding clause^ ^for each crimi^^nal trial conducted by him in the circuit^court, ^10M^furniahee the basis of Mr.^Keene^, refusal to give an account of the^(mb collected by him as a Justice of the^peace or to charge fees for the county^attorney iu cases in which that official^does not appear. While the position^taken by the justice may not be sustained^in the higher courts. It directs attention^to an ambiguity in the existing law
DelegateVoorhaat Talks o^ Hspubllcan Hotllil-^ty lotha Territories.
When1 find came to Washington as a^delegate,^ said Delegate Voorhees, of^Washington territory, to a correspondent^of the M Paul UIoImi at ttie national capi^^tal, ^I came to work for my BBBplBh My^republican successor comes to op|^o*c state^^hood, aa 1 am informed.
Whyshould he do that /
Therepublican* do not want ttie terri^tortus to come Into ttie union under demo^^cratic BBJBBJbBBi By delaying for a few^months, they might have hu extra session^ot congress, and come in under republican^husbandry and bring forth fruit of repubil^CBB votes on the strength ot that guardian^^ship. As things now are, with an excellent^i'a for admission under the omrnhus bill,^the delegates elect m Washington ami^Montana will have to tight llo-ir battles^owr again next November. I shall not be^a candidate under Bay elKUBtttBOeBB, but^1 shall be in the cainpnigu. It will be my^i urn to point to adsalsflOB an a result of^four years' hard, unremitting, uarequbBad^becaase unappreciated toil. It would en^^able sae to say, 'i told you so.' it would^be greater satisfaction than ttie holding of^any office to be able to say to m^ trienda^that Washington territory comes into ttie^under democratic auspices, and MB direct^result ot my labor.
Whatsort ot an instrument Is the con-^htltolion ot '^'.'
1have careiully examined It, and, wltti^slight amendment*, it will prove to sb ssm^of ttie best conntltutloiia adopted by any^state In IBis union. I here must be differ-^fiit judicial districts and different salaries^paid to various otticials; but as a general^thing, the constitution os '7a Is fresh and as^applicable to our needs as tt could have^tit en If prepued III ^H. It evidences far-^m eing wisdom on ttie part of Its framers.^It will Ik* a ^t|..n l-r the statv
ofWashington a bundled years hence.
Howdo your people tike Mr. ^prmg^ r's^proposed new names of Wallula or I n^cotna v
Ido not know just what the people^think of tin ui. Hut 1 am under (tie im^pfSBSlon that they tHdleve themselves com^petent to m lecf a name for themselves, and^ttie name of Washington seems to suit^them pretty well.

Oneyear ago I should tiave emphatic^allv said deiiMMTatic. Hut It will In* a^struggle between the two parties now. and^no one can safely predict which side will^wm. The^ are prett) ^ real] divided*
IBBS plainly now. however, that the re^^sponsibility is shifted, and 1 am glad of It.^t he democratic party tins be *n to blame,^but the republican part) is now shoulder^^ing the responsibility of keeping the terri^^tories out ot I he I n ion. There Is no aVsuM^ot it. 1 blamed Bll parti when It deserved^cciiMire, and I Bo not now hesitate to^charge the republican party in the senate^with the meanest and most degrading of^partisanship, in keeping us out an^other ^ear, sole!} 1 *^r party advantage ^^The senatorial caucus today decided to^keep the terntorn n out of ttie I nion dur^Ing this OODgresS. They may den) it, hut^it Is true. The republicans think ttie ter^ritorb s should come In under republican^auspices in the house of representatives aa^well as at the white house. When it was^Huggented to Senator lugallsthat maybe^the democrats will filibuster and prevent^the BdSslssioa ot the territories at all in the^next Boogreas. be curled his cynical mus^^tache and said:
Willany northern democrat dare vote^against ttie admission of the territories in^any manner ptescriBed hy the majority t^It is politically unthinkable, t'ongress^nu n least of all men slaughter themselves^merely for pastime. Any northern BjBBM^erst who voles against admission votes^against his own reiiomlnatlon as well as^against his own re-election.
