In tho Supreme Court of tbe United States ex-Attorney-General Garland asked the court to advance for hearing the appeal of the Northern Pacific Kail road Company vs. J. L. Patterson, Treas urer of Gallatin conntv, Mont., from the Montana Supreme Court. The proposi tions contained in this case involve ulti mately the question of the taxability of all the unpatented surveyed lands within the limits ol the northern racinc, nouin p . . . ,, ,fi c , . Californitt and Oregon. Oregon and California, Atlantic and Pacific, Texas Pacific and all other various land grants made bv Congress to aid in the construc tion of railroads. These lands now mount in the case of the Northern Pa cific grant almie to over 17,000,000 acres, an area rapidly increasing as th surveys are farther extended. The area of lands in the same condition included in simi lar grants will more than double this. These lands are to be fonnd in almost every State west of the Mississippi, and their taxability has been one of the great sources of revenue in those States. The Southern Pacific Company, controlling the land grants of that road, of the Cen tral Pacific, Oregon and California and California and Oregon, refuses to pay taxes upon unpatented portions of those grants. The States along the line of the Northern Pacific have sustained the claims of tbe County Treasurers, and tax tbe lands within their jurisdiction ; and the railroad company comes to the Su preme Court for relief. The report of Brigadier-General Will iam P. Carlin, commanding the military department of the Columbia, which in cludes the States of Oregon, Washington and a part of Idaho and the Territory of Alaska, has been received at the War Department. The General devotes a largo part of his report to urging the necessity for the abandonment of some small posts in the department because of their inaccessibility and the estab lishment of largor posts in place of them at points near the railroad and the large cities and towns. General Carlin re commends tbe discontinuance of Fort Spokane, Wash., and the construction of a post near Spokane. Fort Town send, lie says, is useless to protect the cities and harbors of Pugot Sound, and he thinks the garrison should be re moved to some important point. One, if not two, points in addition to these named could, in General Carlin's opin ion, be abandoned with advantage to the government. Fort Canby, at tbe month of the Columbia river, would be of great importance in time of war with a naval power, but it is inaccessible in winter, and only a small garrison is re quired there in time of peace. Fort Stevens, on the opposite or southern side of the river, is also a point of great importance, and General Carlin urges that it be strongly fortified. General Carlin reports that desertions in the de partment of the Columbia showed an In crease during tbe year. He says that the attempt to enlist a company of In diana resulted in a failure.
