It is in our power to make^this the great atate of tlie union ^^r to^hamper an^* dwarf it for all time. In view^of the ditlhtiUia* Which have attended the^convening of the Mrst legislative assembly^under the state constitution, 1 yield the^opportunity w Stic 11 precedent has cstiile^Itsvfted to indulge ill the patriotic sctiti-^mi'iits which such an occasion, under dif^^ferent circumstances, might inspin-.

Having full confidence in^your ability to provide the necessary ma-^bMsjh to put the state government In^operation, mid Ix-uig fully assured of your^IMttriotic desire in thut respect, 1 promise^you my active and cordial co-operation to^that end. ,

TheiM-uiteiitiary formerly lielonsiiig to^and uiuler the control of the I'liitcd^Stutes. lias now In-come the. propt^rty of^the State. The same with the lands con^^nected therewith were granted to the^state by the act providing for our admis^^sion into tlie union. Under our territorial^organisation the control anil manage^^ment of this institution was under the ex^^clusive jurisdiction of the United States^with whom the U-rritory contracted for^the maintenance and sup|^ort of its pris^^oners. In providing for the change from^territ^^rial to state government, no provis^^ion was made to cover the |ierio.l^between the date of admission^and the time when the legis^^lature should provide for the proper man^^agement of the Name. Temporarily the^United States marshal is in charge, under^the contract between the territory anil the^United States. It is therefore important^that you should make early provision for^its government and maintenance. I there^^fore recommend that a warden ho pro^^vided, who may be authorized to employ^such guards and assistants as you may^deem proper, who shall have the control^ami management of the penitentiary mi^^ller proper restrictions, stihjcct to the^sii|M^rvisiou of the hoard of state prison^commissioners, till the Kith day of ^ ^cto-^bsjr, A. D. lssM, the United States marshal^reported to Governor U. V. White, late^governor of Montana Territory, that there^were confined in the penitentiary lot con^^victs, and that nuuilter would Is- greatly^increased rather than diminished In the^future. The capacity of the penitentiary^is only for 140 |mtsoiis. It is therefore uie^pareut tliat the present overcrowile l con^^dition of this institution is a constant^menace to the security of the |^ersous con^^fined therein, as well as dAiigerous, from^a sanitary point of view. The present^United States marshal, whose opportu^^nities for observation have been superior^to mine, and whose judgment is worthy^of great consideration, sent the following^communication to Governor White: | Here^follows the letter of the marshal on the^subject. |
Tbeinsane of the state are supported^under a contract between the Territory of^Montana and Drs. Mitchell and Mussig-^bmd at Warm Springs, Doer Lodge county,^at eight dollars per week, making an ex^^pense to the state of about $75,UUU per an^^num. The- number is increasing rapidly,^the last report showing 1X4 patients main^^tained at public expense. The mainten^^ance of tlie insane and the |m*iiiteutiury^will form tlie largest items of expense mi^^ller our state government. The prois-r^treatment of those unforunates committed^to the asylum at tlie least possible ex^^pense to the state, calls for tlie exercise of^your best Judgtnnt. I am not prepired at^this time to say that any new art-aug^^ments would lie advantageous to the state^or to the |m-rsons conlluetl therein, hut in^view of the great and growing expense in^thut Is-half. I urge the most thorough in^^vestigation of the subject.
HTATIMIL.IT1A.^Section a. article 14 of the constitution^makes it HMSMIstts-nt iiihmi the state to^maintain the militia by appropriations^from the state treasury. In view of this^provision and the great drum which this^organization is making upon the treasury,^it iM-eotues u ^|uestioil of tllegraveste .n-^eeru how to maintain the militia so as to^preserve its efficiency in cum- of danger,^ami at the same time reduce the expense^to tlie minimum. I submit that ull sala^^ries per d em uml other extraordinary ex^^penses must be materially reduced if not
entirelydone away with. The annual en^^campments now provided for by law may^be beneficial as a matter of discipline to^ofikers and men, but I cannot believe^that the advantage is at all commensurate^with tbe expense to the people. It is ob^^vious that the new burdens of expense^which a state government imposes and^which are absolutely necessary to the ad^^ministration of its affairs, tlie most rigid^economy must be practised in every de^^partment of government. The expense^of the state militia or national guard, as^far as can be ascertained for tlie past^year, including the building of ull arsenal,^will amount to *4a,tiil. an increase over^last year of uImhii ^fJ,UOl^ I commend^this subject to your careful consideration,^anil earnestly hope that you may find it^practicable to materially reduce tlie ex^^penses of this organization without im^^pairing its usefulness. This, it seems to^me, may Is- effected in the manner above^suggested, ami by rc|m-aliug the law pro^^viding for animal encampments.^HTtTr INSTITITIONM ami i'l'Bl.U' Bt'lLIV-^INiis.
Withthe exception of the penitentiary^at Deer bodge and the arsenal now in t'te^course of construction at the scat of gov^^ernment, the state has no institutions or^public buildings.
Provisionhowever is made by section^1, article 10 of the constitution for the es^^tablishment ami sup|M^rt by tin- state of^educational, reformatory and im-iiuI insti^^tutions, and those for the Is-iicHt of t he^insane, blind, deaf ami mute, soldiers'^home, ami such other institutions as tlie^public good may r^-^|iiirc. While the es^^tablishment of these institutions is made^mandatory by the constitution, no time is^fixed when legislative action shall be^taken. In view of the iner, ase of cx-
pense to till- people c01isci|uci11 upon a
changefrom territorial to state govern^^ment ami the limitation placed by the con^^stitution upon the public ex|s ndililles, I^hope no etl'orl will Is- made at this session^to provide for tin- construction of such^building-. It might not Is- unwise, how^^ever, if tlie bs atioii of these institutions^should be the subject of early considera^^tion ami settlement. The longer^that is delayed the greater will^Is- tin* struggle ts-twccll aspiring^prodigal.I sections of the state for recognition m^that Is-half and pending such contention^the interests ol good legislation may be^subordinate, if not wholly ignored. In^this connection it is proper to call your^attention to the fact that legislation will^Is- rctpiired to give fore,- anil effect to sci--^1 ion 2 of article III of the constitution pro^^viding for the iMTiiiaticnt location of the^seat of governiiient. Tin- manner of sub^^mission, till- method of canvassing the^votes, ami the details generally should be^provided for.

Yourattention is directed to the present^fee bill of the r^-s|x-ctivc county .Ulcers.^The complaint is universal that tlie fees^uiuler tin- territorial laws and which are^now injected into the state statutes are^unreasonable and excessive. While all^oflieers should have fair and just compen^^sation ami ought to Is-consulted in the^establishment of fees, the citizen ought^not to Is-^-oiii|s-lled to surrender entirely^to their demands. I ree.utoiii imI, there^^fore, a complete revision and adjustment^of the present law II xiug the fees of county^olheers so as to make tlic-in approximately^commensurate with tin- sci*.-ii*t-s rendered,^m.I that all fi-es when collected Is- paid^into tin- rosiM-ctive county treasuries anil^that ill lieu thereof salaries Is- paid to^such olllccrs.
1'UIIL.K'LAN lis.^The act providing for our udmissioii in^^to the Union grants to the stab- public^lauds, which, if pro|s-rly selected, man^^aged anil controlled, will place Montana^second to no stub* in the l iiion in respect^to educ ational and other institutions for^which the grant was intended. It is there-^fort- of t.ic highest concern to the people^that speedy legislative action should Is-^hail, providing for tlie early selection of^these lauds. Kvery day that passes less^^ens the value of tin- grant by affording^uu opiMirtuuity tor individuals to initiate^settlements and rights under the land^laws of the I'm led States which will Is-^suix-rior to ours until the selections un^^made. I call your attention to Sec. It) of^the Enabling Act referred to and other^sections of the same act relating to the^same subject. See. 1, Art. IS of the con^^stitution seems to contemplate tin- crea^^tion of u Hoard of Laud I ommissiotici-s^whose duty it shall be to classify all pub^^lic lands. It appears to me that this^hoard should Is* charged witli the duty of^making the seh-etious provided for in^S,-e. 1U of the Enabling Act atsive referred^to. J may have MMMtasj to make this^matter the subject of a separate^communication hereafter. but for^the presentmake no othe.
recommendationsconcerning the same,^except, that ill any provision you may^make for the sale or leasing of public^lands belonging to tin- stub-, preference^should Is- given to actual settlers, who in^go.sl faith located upots' the same by mis^^take or who, Ix-licvmg such preference^would lie given, have made valuable im^^provements upon till- same. These two^classes of persons should Is- prob-ctcd;^tin- former for the reason that the failure^of the general government to extend the^public surveys math* it impossible in many^eases to distinguish a school section from^any other s,-etioii, aud tin- hitter for tin-^reason that the constitution adopted and^rati lied by the tieople in 1HS4, contained u^provision similar to the recommendation^above made, and upon which numerous^persons have relied and made settlements^accordingly. If, as it seems |^rohahle, the^federal government shall ultimately aid^in the establishment of a system of irriga^^tion anil the storage of water by means of^reservoirs, no mall call approximate the^value of these* lands to the stute in t he^future. I make this observation to guard^you against the demand of those who.^eager to monoiMilixe our lauds, will doubt^^less lx* on hand to urge a hasty and incoii-^siderutc disposition thereof.

Amongth,- bills intr.shx-.il in tlx- sen^^ate to-day were the following: Ity Mit^^chell, the I 'handler bill of lust congress^for the creation of a division of silk cul^^ture in the department of agriculture: au^^thorizing the citizens of Colorado, Nevada^and the territories to fell ami remove^tillllxT oil the public domain for mining^and domestic portsxsBa| also providing^that tin* half dollar shall contain om*-^half. the .piartei dollar one-fourth and^the dune otie-teiitli of the amount of sil^^ver contained in tlx- standard dollar; also^the hill of the last congress to grant irri^^gation companies tlx* right of way through^public lands for irrigation pur|x^ses.
Tlx-cxt*cutivc session of th,* senate this^uftertioon lasted more than two hours.^The principal topic under discussion was^tlx- nomination of Judge Itrewer to lx-^assfs-iate justice of tlx- supreme court.^This was . ailed up by Senator lug.ill-,^upon a fuvoruhlc report of the committee^on judiciary. Although there was no^minority re|xn-t. confirmation .if the nom^^ination was op|Misci| by senators of both^parties, it is said, w ho based their objec^^tions upon two grounds : First, his decis^^ions in the prohibition cases in Kansas,^which wen- afterwards reversed by the^supreme court. Second, that tlx*^statement of facts in Judge^(in-shum's review of the ap'ioiiitui^tit of^a rceoivcrof the W.iln.li system of rail^^roads by Judge lirewer, whose order in^tlx- case Judge tin-sham vacuti*d so far as^it alfected roads within tlx* limits of his^cin-uit. It was asserted that these things^justify tlx* suspicion that Judge Brewer is^a friend of cor|x*rution interests as^against those of tlx* public, and that the^fads ut stat.sl in Judge t*rexliam'rt review^warrant an investigation. The friends of^Judge lln-w r, it is said, denied that he^was in any wise unduly influenced in his^action in tlx- Wabash rcstt-ivcrship, hut^adjournment came before the cose was^disposed of.

Cmi-Af'.o.Dec. 17.^State's Attorney^Loiigetieckcr this evening after confer^^ence with one of tlie ( rollin jury, wlxsw*^name he withheld, told how the verdict^was reached. As surmised. Juror John^Culver, who s|m*nt much of his spar,- time^during the long evenings reading the^bible was the influential factor. The^first incident in this connection occurred ,'^while the trial was in progress at th,- tunc .^when Mrs. Conklin testified. That^evening Culver notified his .fellow^jurors that lx- solemnly Iwlievcd she had^committed perjury. Liter Mrs. lbs it. I,^he thought, was a liar, and Martinson, the^,-xprt*ismati, did not really know Itnrke,^while Carlson was plainly telling false-^luxsls. To illustrate as to Kxpr.-ssiii.tii^Martinson, Mr. Culver told of a mistake^made by the wife of his partner, who one^day saw a man ruling ill a buggy whom^six* was sure was Culver, w hen in |x^int .if^fact she was entirely mistaken. Culver^sc. tiicd to see in nearly every witness for^the stab* a vindictive or purchased |x-r-^jurer. lb* plainly hint,si that it hs.Ue.l^like conspiracy on the state's part.

Lon^on. I^ec. 17. Parnell, who in to^six-.tk in reply to the speech recently^math* by l ord Salisbury at the conserva^^tive meeting at Nottingham, arrived at^that city to-day. A great crowd was at^the rails-ay station and he was greeted^with mingled groans an.I cheers. Mr.^I'arnell addressed a large audience this^afternoon. He declared there never has^been a movement of such magnitude in^the country' which was so comparatively^free fn.ni crime us the land league moves^meiit. Tlx-obj.s-t of tlx-liouie rule move^^ment was to regulate Ireland, especially^with reganl to her industrial condition.^Hal four's plan of making railways through^iiii|si\ erishetl districts was a vain ex|W*ndi~^tiire. Home rule aimed at national regen^^eration. This implied I he regeneration off^industries and tlx- imlnstrial ami eom-^m. rcial spirit of tlx* |s-op|e. If home rule^wen* granted it would not discourage the^ru b (m-opl.- of l.nglaml from promoting^industrial developments, but money would^In- judiciously, advutitagcoiisly employ.*,!,^instead of Ix-iug wast.si, as now, to^munition in power a government of^fraud and trickery. Kxtx-mhtures of^art would enable ln*lutxl to gc^keep her head alxivo water and so^c anil tleve|o|x* th-- ipialititst of her^that six* would lx* no longer an^xbibitiou for tlx* wond.-r ami scorn of^! th.- nations of tlx* world.
