Mr. Harri.05 has added to the txin
intj panic amonc republican congressrr.eQ
by informing prominent members of his
party that it was necessary to call a halt
in the proposed extravagant concession
a' appropriations, and that if congress
persisted in passing a number of meas
ure: now before it, appropriates enor
mous 9 ims of money for purposes that
are not necesry for the public welfare,
he would certainly be obliged to erercise
his right to veto such measures. The re
suit is that a scramble has already bepun
among the various committees to see
which can get the most before the end is
reached; this scramble will grow worse
and worse from now on until the day of
adjournment and the result will be that
many meritorous measures will be left
out in the cold while numbers of those
without mert wiil become laws. From a
strictly political standpoint, the demo
crats have nothing to complain of in the
present situation. Every republican
seems to desire to get a part of the much
talked about treasury surplus before it
entirely disappears. There are at least a
dozn propositions before congress to
increase the salaries of different classes
of government employes.

mission. Washington Crnr, March 'i".. The re
ports submitted to the senate on the Mon
tana senatorship being from the Republican
and Democratic members of tbe elections
committ-je, are not what might be called
hernionicus. Tbe majority gives at theout
et the circumstances surrounding tbe elec
tion of Saunders and Power by the Iron
Hail, or Republican legislator, composed of
half tbe members of the senate an i the Re
publican representatives claiming to be
elected, and of Magicnisani Clark by the
court bou legislature, composed of half of
the senate and the Democratic representa
tives from S.lver Bow couuty claiming to be
electe-t Ths whole case, then, the report
says, turns upoa the question as to which of
these two sets were Wgally elected.
A Review of the Law.
Afb-r reviewing antecedent legislation
upon the subject of the election, including
the en:;biinu act of congress, the ordinance
passed by the constitutional convention, and
the provisions of the old territorial laws, the
majority concludes that the territorial law
providing that the county clerk shall issue
certifl?at of election to representatives in
tbe legislature wss superseded by tbe ordi
nance of the constitutional convention,
which imposed that duty upon the state
bourd of canvassers, and holds that the Re
publicans were proper representatives and
that this view h supported by the undis
puted evidence laid before the committee by
the Democratic contestants.
I'oint from the Minority Report.
The minority report makes the claim that
the true legislature of Montana consisted of
the senate and house which met at the court
house in Helena; that eight of the senators
and twenty-nice members of the house of
repreruTativ thereof held a joint conven
tion for the election of a United States sen
ator, in which a majority of all the mem
bers elf-cte 1 to the legislature appeared and
acted, Jun. T, This session of the legis
lature was recognised by the governor of
the state. The session at which the advrse
claimants Powers and Saunders were
elected was never recognized by the govern
or, nor was their election ever cei tified to
by the governor. The report takes exactly
opposite ground to that of the majority as
to the election in precinct 34, Silver Bow
county, and claims tbe election of the Dem

The Minnesota Railway Rate Law De
Wahhixoton Cmr, Mirch25. An opin
ion waa rendered in the supreme court of
the United States yesterday in the case of
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul, and
the Minneapolis Eastern railroads against
the state of Minnesota and the state railroad
commissioner. The cases Involve the right
of the state warehouse commission to estab
lish freight rates within tha state. Tbe su
preme court of the state had sustained tha
eommasion, and had directed the companies
to change their tariff in accordance with
the rates and regulations fixed by the com
mission. The opinion rendered yesterday
was not unanimous, Justices Lradley, Gray,
and Lamar niswnting from it, and Justice
Miller giving his qualified indorsement.
State Decision, Reversed.
The opinion of the court reverses the judg
ment of the state supreme court and remands
the case to that court tor further proceedings.
Tbe opinion of the supreme court ot Minne
sota is reviewed at length, and this, it is
stated, authoritatively declares that it is th
expressed intention of the legislature of
Uiiinesota by that statute that :he rates re
commended and published by the commission
are the only ones that are lawful, and there
fore, in the contemplation of law, the only
only ones that are equal and reasonable.
The court adds: "In other words, although
the railroad company is forbiddon to estab
lish rates that are not equal and reasonable
there is no power in the courts to stay th
bam Is of tbe commission if it chooses to
establish rates that are unequal and un

I ON DON. March 21 The government bill
for the purchase of lan i in Ireland was in
troduced in the commons last evening by
Balfour, who, in explanation of tbe meas
ure, said that its purpnw was to improve tbe
poorer and most congested districts. He de
clared that a universal agreement was a
necessity in order to increase the num
ber of occupying owners iu Ireland, aui ar
gued the practicability by reason that land
was cheaper in Ireland than in Eugland.
He condemned the policy of excluding land
lord front rural social life, taking th
ground that in Enliud the landlords con
tributed to lha well being of tbwsewho wer
not landlords. There are now, be sai 1, five
bodies for the valuation and s lie of land.
This bill proposes to amalgamate them into
one. He denk-d that there was any war
rant for the sug;! that the introduc
tion of a land pu: ciiase bill was eompui ry,
except through the necessity for such a
measure. If laixlluris were compelled to
sell, tenants ought to te made to buy. Tbe
government raw no possibility of in-tsntly
transferring lands from owners to ocrupy
ers. British Credit To Be t wd.
Some d-gree of British credit could be
used to secure Landlords aeainst loss, though
the British taxpayers should have no risk.
The bill encouraged the landlord and tenant
to bargain as to the prii-e of a holding. If
they failed to agree the question cf price
was referred to the land department, tbe
officials of hih fixing the conditions.
they mut be adhered to. Faroe'.lita laugh
ter) The land department, he bail, might
issue a vesting order making a tenant the
owner of a holding free from obligation, ex
cept 4 per cent, per annum on tbe money
advanced. This 4 per cent, he called tb
normal annuity, but during the first five
years the bill required the tenant to pay 9
per cent of the annual rent.
An Illaatration of Its Operation.
Supposing tbe r.-nt to be KV, the tenants
would pay '50. of which the government
proposes t retain 12, as the tenants insur
ance to meet a season of special distress. As
secuntv for purchases, tha rill propose to
take the contributions of the British ex
chequer to local Irish purposes ami, as a
coroliary. make the l-)cal county authorities
responsible for any default. The bill would

of two portions, cash aui contiugHit. Th
cash portion would ciuit of 4o,Ut yearly
whicb Ireland has nevea received, but
ought to receive as a set off against Eng
land and Scotland's getting the advantage
of licensing duties. Next there would be a
probate duty errant assigned lor the future,
estimated at l"AJ0,(sX) yearly. Next a fourth
per cent, on annuities payable by tenant a
The Continent Fund.
The contingent portion would consist of
govern meat contributions to the p r law
education and like pu-poses. Exix-rience
showed that hss than 2 tr cent, of the an
nual installments remain unpaid. Un.ier
tbe bill 6 per cent would bav to rem sin un
paid befrr any security w as t- .uchi-d except
tbe 4th per cent, reserved from tenants' sn-
rtrtMties. Un ess thi re should be a reititi.u

ing the poor law and educational grants
would never be approached It was de
signed to use the 4th p.-r cent, from the
tenants' annual 4 per ci-nt. for the erection
f laborers' dwelling.
Dealing with Conceited Districts.
A congested district covering per cent.
of a county would l ma le a separate county
for tbe purposes of the act. A board of
fight mem tiers, including the chief secretary
for Ireland, a dxghte of the land depart
ment, and a delegate of the fl-hery board,
tocontr.il the cougstei dinct. A grant
of LHO,' tX) from tbe church surplus would
be devote ! to relieving the coret.sl, devel
oping fi-herie- and fostering ia iu-tnes. In
conclusion he said the scheme was without a
conceivable risk to the imperial taxpayer.

DECISION ON SUNDAY WORK.
A Seventh Day Adventlst I Ined for Worh
u the First Day.
Memphis, Tenu., March 2a. The Sunday
work questiou aavt- up in the cir
cuit court f OVon couuty, this
state, recently in a peculiar form.
R. M. King, a member of tbe sect of
Seventh Day Adventists, was accused by
two men belonging to a society, the purpose
of which is to enforce the Sunday laws, of
working on bis farm on Sunday. The proof
that he had done so was conclusive, and he
urged that bis religious belief required him
to keep the real Sabbath Saturday. Two
of the witnesses admitted that when tbey
saw Klug at work tbey themselves wer
also on business intent, one going to look
after a cow and the other to hire farm
hands, but this testimony as well as other,
to the effect that other men in the neighbor
hood had worked on Sunday, was declared
to nave nothing to do with the case, aud thi
defendant was fined $73 by the jury.
The Judge's Remarks.
In overruling a motion for a new bearing.
th Judge said: "Th law is clear. Th
fin is a reasonable on and well warranted.
Tb laws arw made to be obeyed, and Mr.
hong and all other men should and must
obey or leave tbe country. I make these re
marks that they may know that I intend to
hav the taw strictly enforced in the future,
Mr. King and his brethren have a right to
keep another day if tbey choose, but as
Christian men it is tbeir duty to obey tb
laws of th state, and they must do it"
