The Sandwich iala:nders put their pro test ia a reasonable, practical manllter, tand it is hoped they mtay take care of their dise.sed and filth without interference from this side of the Pacific. This gosa - eminent found the leper settlement at Molokai when it became possessed of the islands. Let tihe Kanakas keep theta ill tact and undisturbed. The press dispatch concludes as follow s: "In addition to their protest against the recontntendation of the senate commission on Hawaii regarding the leper settlement, local men interested are prepariwnt to op pose a recommendation which has been made providing that the American land laws be applied to Hawaiian public lands. This is an old subject of controversy and Governor Dole has always insisted that the Hawaiian land laws were better fitted for local conditions, as the American laws were made for larger areas than here." THE WHIPPING-POST. And now comes the Missouri legislature with a bill providing for the establishment of the whipping post for persons convicted of petit larceny, and further providing that a constable shall inflict from so to so lashtes upon offenders. During the territorial legislative session 9f 1871-73 the late Dr. A. It. Mitchell, then president of the legislative council, drew up a bill and caused it to bhe intro duced, providing for the crection and establishment of whipping posts in Aon tana for Ihe especial punishment of wife beaters. The bill failed to become a law. Conditions at that time did not seem to justify its enactment into our statutes. 3utte was nothing but a straggling little plaeer mliming camp at that time, and had ies deweloped the hordes of great lusty, hruttl womaqteters it since has. Many * pitif' atcrrad wife, Victinm of drunken, atw aibdlsipa.' have rued the day that -., Mitell's bill was turned down. ",V Woman-beating was for a long time quite a popular recreation among certain classes and in certain localities in Butte. Pistols, piickhandles and axes have displaced Ast,' and the wife murderers who cannot follow' Dempsey into oblivion and safety manage to escape the rope sonic other way. Dela ware is not the only state in the union that saw virtue in a wlhipping post. AS TO IRRIGATION. 'The.

There is srome little duty ont coal imported in the stute from the north, amounting to about 75 cents a toll. If the suspension .of the duty has a general application, the Lethbridge, or Gait coal, should he favorably altected. T'hree "lady highwaymen" were recently arrested ill I)enver and gave their names as May Howard, May Kelly and May Sum mers. Thus we find that the poet was wrung when he wrote: "It is not always May."

The sultan of Bocolod will likely be grieved to hear that his friend "Jim" Till. man will shortly be immune from making anti-imperialistic speeches in his behalf. Helena need have no fear of the lack of coal while the legislature is in session. If the worst comes she may induce the mem bers to make their speeches out doors.

Craig, of the state university at Missoula, is especially interested in a measure which will be introduced early next week by State Senator Donlan, and notice of which was given by the Missoula statesman yes terday. The proposed bill directly con cerns the state university as it is designed t~ increase the attendance at that institu tiou and to encourage young men and women throughout the state to seek a Ii her education there. -f the proposed Donlan bill becomes a law, each county in the state will have two free scholarships in the university, to be distributed through the county superin tendents of schools.

If the holder of the certificate in that time has proven a success as a teacher, he will be entitled to a life diplo ma. and may teach without further ex amlnation. "This bill," Said P'resident Craig, "meets with the hearty approval of the board of regents. In fact it carries out the views of the state board of education, which, at its last meeting, passed a resolution fa v.ring such a plan. We feel that it will add to the interest in university work, in. rreasy the attendance at the institution and be of general benefit to the cause of higher cducation ill this state." 1' here is another scarcity. of lawmakers existilng in Helena today.

Now there are petititons in the air which will appear in the forms of bills next week providing for the division of the county in two places creating Bearpaw and Belknap counties and leaving enourh for Choteau to continue existence under. Un der this plan the original county would be left 3.67a square miles with a property valuation of $3.ooo,ooo; Bearpaw would have 6,:ao square miles and $j,Soo,ooo valuation and Belknap, 3,672 square miles and $J,ooo,ooo valuation. It is claimed that there are many supporters to the triple division proposition. Following the idea suggested by the gov ernor's message in reference to taxing franchises, Representative l.anstrum has asked the house to call upon the state aud itor for a list of all franchises under which concerns are operating in the state. It is the purpose of Mr. l.anstrum to have the names of these companies holding fran chises, together with the estimated valua tion of each. presented to the ways and means committee for the purpose of de vising means for raising revenues. It is expected that this committee of the house will recommend a bill taxing franchises in the state. which will include those of all public utilities. Telephone, telegraph, street railway and other like privileges will come under the tax collector, if the bill which is likely to follow becomes a law. moved in from a library building being formerly used. The building is one story and basement. Romanesque in st)le and built of white stone. The Miles City library, as told in the holiday issue of the Inter Mountain. is also completed and cost about $10,000. The most expensive of the library build ings being erected in the state up to date by Mr. Carnegie is that at Great Falls. 1 his is to cost $.o,ooo. Smith & Goddard. the Hutte contractors, also have the con tract for this building and progress on the structure has advanced to the point where the roof is being put on. The build ing is of the modern style of architecture with a basemenlt and one story. It is built of stone. The IBozeman library is to cost $15,ooo. The foundation has been built. The build ing will be of the classic style of architec ture. "1I think all of the buildings Sir. Car negie is putting up in this state will be structures of which the cities receiving them can well be proud of," said Mr. Ilaire as he was about to take the train for Ilelena last night. "The buildings have all been designed with a view of their practicability for library purposes anl while not as ornate as some might think they ought to be, they will nevertheless be just the thing for library purposes."
