Therela, then-lore, the Strongest possible^reuNutih why tde iiiiuerH and the railroad*^should co ii|h rate and maintain the luoat^friendli rel .' ioiih.
Hutniosi uiit otuiial. lv the natural and^legal rulisol i he miner to diM'overuK on^odd MtiuM appear to come in conflict^with the legal rights of the railroad; ami M^the ri^h's involved are of ureal proa|active^value, tin conflict^ over them will Ih' de^^fended with all the abilities find reaourcea^of both parte -. and will inevitably In MM^intensely bitter and vastly ci|^cii*i\c; and^Iroui la. great d AealtJ in discovering the^character of the lands in dispute, new case*^will certainly arise (or the uent thousand^years, unless some means be found to recon^^cile citumctuig claims other than an appeal^to the laud iiflWa and courts. In other^worda. Dlider pn si nl laws and tilling* tin^must lie a hill-r in im pressible, an ever^last.ii ^ ^^ una li will rest like all in-^eubiis u|sui me pros|h rily of our ^ outig^atate.
'ihis stab' of conflict is most uiifoitunat^fur both parties It is unfortunate tor tin^railroad, fur it will las nut naive: it will dt^lay its possession of the land and the einol^^11 his derived therefrom; it will entail^lowil by |^isfpolling the selection of bind*^tn lieu of lin.se nwardisl to nailers, after^the best lands havu been nppiopriated b\^other parties; and most of all the railroad^will Im' injured by the alienation of a ureal^multitude, no one of whorn ih ho |Hiwerless^that bis aaaal will or ill will may be ol^if real iiiiiHirtauce to the road.
Aconflict which occurred ninny years ago^between a |as^r widow and a great railroad,^the JioHtoii A Maine, I think, will illustrate^ti-'* a poor lone woman may prove tisi^atroiiu for a great ^otaatattam,
Atrain killed the widow's pig. The run^uany refused to pay for It. The woiuan was^too |s^or to employ lawyers and^iiiiw^e a legal^nglil: and all Hie neighbors sviupat bi/aal^with her for the loss ol her only pig. Hut^by MM means n. ver discovered by tin^Oompuuy, tin tails were ho greased on an^^jp grade near the widow's cabin that trains^Were often slop|sd and drlaw d so inllch to^the Taxation ol the ajMM that a guard^waa detailed topioteet the road and dis^Cover the smier. After lnauv Weary^day a and inyhts of fruitless' wute.li-^int;, the faard was removed an no^longer nei'is, tit, and the ^reeHti re^^turned, lain pound of lard thus applied

lor these and other reasons which might^he given, this conflict is unfortunate b.i^'he railroad and much more unfortunate^for tin miners. It in u check U|ain the pros^perity ^[ (be railroad, and it will Btaa^millions from the pockets of hard-working^miners, and will real as an incubus U|s^n^^he progreas of our atate.
Forsuch an evil there tuUHt la^ atnue rem^^edy. What is it
Severalremedies have been proponed.
MiIt is proponed that the miner* and
n/.eunder^and cui-^uill to se^^cure for the miner an wmm'^nd legal
rights,to p.ss ss and elijov all the lauielitH^of his diacovenes,, vi n o:i all odd sections^I of the public domain. This is certainly a^i g.KKi move; and. if ^i- Iv in IMagaa, must^btHsuue a great help t^^ the miner ill secur^^ing justice, ami nil aid to all parties and ill^teresls ill obtaining an early and amicable^actl lenient of ih. whole mutter in eroiitro-
2d.It is prop ised to n-k the secretary of the^i liter,,,rt,withhold all patents to the railroad^until the Mineral Lund association of Moii-^I in;i is pay piled to act and fully present the^chums of tie miners to the t. n t noiwtnd^mineral locations made U|s,n the laud^claimed bv tea railroad 111 till* st .(,-.
Ihisis well. It la mil wise to give the^railroad the advantage of patents. I lenigh^I hey in ,y not convey t he title to the rail^^road, tiny ceilainlv a re a prima facie evi^^dence of till,; and this th, gov.riiiii.iit^should not give to either applicant until it^is fully settled, who are the rightful claim^^ant-
lid.It is proposed to employ the best leg^^al tal.nt to represent the miners' claims^itndseelh.it they have all the law grants^them. This, loo, ia a wis, move, as the^railroad is represented by a large number^of the best lawyers of the land.
4th.Il Is prop ped to rispnre the railroad^to furnish iilfidavits thai the lands pail nt, d^t^ the con.piny are not mineral lauds. Hut^such a requirement will be of little value in^deciding the ipicsti,,n at issue; for no in hi^fan poailbl) kie.w and lion -stly swear thai^any one scclio.'i in the mountain rtgions of^Montana is not mineral land.
alh. Il is pro|sised that a commission of
C.ini|H'tCIIIgeologists be . lliptofed Id ' Xalll
Hietin s, lands and cUisaitv Iheai anew ml.,^iiiineral and lion lullieral lauds. This^is wiac in put, and in part only. Such a^commissi..!! call settle with absolute ecr
tahatylhal all tauat odd section. ia tha inn^ita of taa railroad araat, loaatad oal in Iha
(dams,away from the nioiinlain- and leaf*^nils, contain no valuable iniii.nil daaoarla,^save iron and coal, ami call classify Hi,an as^11.'11 iiiineral. Such a commission call also^determine with aajaal w rl.iinly that all^those odd auctioim in the inoun'ains^and foot hills. where iiiineral has^been dlscoveied. la mineral land and^can thus classify I hem. When such a claaa-^ittou'ion ia made, the goveriniieiit can *ali ly^Kraut pub nis to the ruilrond lor more than^half the .aid Hcctn.us and to the miners for^all their claims on sections classed aa lulu^eral laud.
Thiswould amicably settle the .(uestion^in dispute as to a very large portion ol the^ao called railroad lands iu M'uitann; but^there would still remain a great nmi laid I
Iioiihiu the mountain regions wmci, no^commission can possibly say is mineral or^ih not mineral. Still the probabilities are^that evi ry section in the mountains ml^foothills is mineral; lor all have been - il,^jected to Ihe Name influences which filiad^all the other mountain lands with mineral^veins. 1 hen it ih more than probable thai^iiiine'al veniH will contmile to be di .- .v^^ red on these lands for the licit tliollsalid^yeara.
tith.l ocoiiiply Willi the condition* of Un^^bind grant, ami do no injustice lo radio,,1^or miner, it is proposed to is,ue I., the nil^r..a.l patents on all audi .unclassified lauds^Willi the ptoviHo that when mineral shall be^llseovan d on any part af them that purl^shall c ase to be railroad prola rtv.
Hutsuch a patent Would be worse than^worthless to the railroad and be unjust lo^the miller. A patent with such a proviso^woulu convey not.tie mid no |s^ssitive evi^'line of title. And besitles.lt would pie-
^ nt tin railroad from erleetiae; lands iu
lieuof such sections, until tie best lands
iiouopen to It* choice, shall be i lk' ii Up.
andit would ha compelled lo take inferior^lands. Fi-w m. 11 w.uild purchase landsthus^patented and uupiovi llieiit, knowing tint^mineral might be discovered any day^which would destroy his title and clitall.tlie^huts of his improvemi nts.
Suchpatents I hi, would be unjust to th.^BVaaaaaiat and miner, lor they would have^delicacy alsiut intruding upon lituda tints^patented. cs|a-ciallv after it hud been pur^^chased and improved by mdlvduala or coui-^pauieH. No one Would like to undeiullln a^man'* liouaeor set np alnice boxes in his^wheat field, or lie I he means in any way,,!^destioying Ills title to the laud* he iiao^bought and improved. And above nil such^title* to tIlea,'lauds would inevitably lead^endless haired*, bickerings and ci|M.|i^sive litigation. One prospect nip or mining^on neb lands might expect to lie pep|s red^with g.swe shot or riddled with bullets; for^a nian'sbouse is his castle and Iiih laud Iiih^eminent domain.
Iti* therefore apparent that llieae reiue-^dic* can only untigate the evil anil not^eradicate it. After all have bts ii applied,^there will still remain vast area* in our^mountains, which have not been proripected.^and not a little so buried beneath a amis and^gravels ami boulders and vegetable d, |Nisits.^it can not be pro*|a'cted without great ex-^pt-nsc: ami over these lands, under the pr. *^cut laws and rulings, the conflict between^the railroad and fin'miners will inevitably^continue, will wax more and more bilier^and become more and BMN ex|* usive. It^will never etui; it is irrepressible and ever*^lasting. 4a Ion ; as men continue to mine^i,i these mountains so long will mini ral dc-
|sisltsbe dlst'ov. led on these odd I ctloli*.
Itla and will com mite to be a heavy drag^on the BNapefit) of our slate, and II will^la c,Hue more ami more Innd. ns..me and^disust rous.^I^. due p rfect ieine.lv, however, has be. n
aaaajoaedibut it doaawa] apnearto meet the
approbationof all the miners, ami pel hap*^not of the railroad. Th it the cuudit ional
titleof tha railroad to odd sections hi the
mountim or mineral regions I*. in BoaM^w.iv i miuguishcd. S. vcral modes of dmng^this have l.eiu suggested. The simp^^lest and ipuckesl mode would be^for the government to declare all the odd^sections in the mountain region* mineral^lands. Time will justify such a dccltiru-^li ui by proving Ihat nine iu every ten of^fuse sections ale mineral lauds. This^would end all strife between file miner and^the railroad. It oii 'lit to be satisfactory to^the miner. I.. cause it would open to his^pick and shovel eveiy seclion in the st it.^where there is the least prospect of finding^valuable mineral tb |s.sits. It should lie aa-^ci pi able to the railroad, for It will mm lie^the coiiipatiy to locate all eipial liiliiil.er of^s, ctions oil more vain d.le lauds, much of^it underlaid with 00 .1 and iron. I his i* a^is a feci solution of tin d.thcullv and is |sr-^f.cth feasible, if the iailroad%'ill acc.pl if.^It at only carrying out at once the provis^^ions of exmtiug law*, for tune will siiow^nearly all these lauds to be mineral, ami at^limes when the loss of title would bring^many hardships and great loss I,. the rail^^road. It aana.nl lie Iha poliey of aaa aoy-
