Keekmoved to change the salary of the^superintendent of public instruction to^$.H,Oou instead of S2 500. Saa It Is a Sinecure. Robinsonopposed the amendment- He^said the office was a mere sinecure. It^served but one purpose, and that waa the^harmony of the system. The duties were^nominal and did not require one month a^year to perform the duties. The work de^^volved upon ti... county superintendents.^He knew where the state superintendent^would visit a county aboat once a year, de^^liver a stereotyped lecture and take his de^^parture. The office of state superintend^^ent was of very small importance and did^not deserve 6500 extra. He would be in^favor of amending by cutting the salar)^down to S 1,000. Keek'samendment to increase the salary^to s3.0o0 waa put and lose Maginnismoved that the salary of no of^^ficial should be increased during his term^of office.

Onmotion of Maginnis proposition No.^22, pardoning power, reported by the judi^^ciary committee, was read. He moved it-^incorporation as section 8. ThePardoaing Power. Carpenteroffered as a substitute a provi-^vlsion doing away with the board of par^^dons and putting the same in tfie hands of^the sovernor. The well settled rule of^placing the pardoning power in the bands^of the governor, be said, should not be de^^parted from. Tne responsibility should^rest with the governor alone. Burleighopposed Carpenter's substitute.^He saw bo reason why there should not be^as much responsibility with four men as^with one. He wanted the report of the^committee to stand. Dixonsaid there waa some difference of^opinion among the judiciary committee,^bat on the whole they bad agreed there^would be leas abnse ot the pardoning power^it t to a board than If left to the governor maelC Ciarksaid the one-man power was grad^^ually narrowing down as the century ad^^vanced. He did not believe in putting so^Important a power in the bands ot one^mm.

He was in favor of the report^of the committee.^^Carpenter's substitute was lost. Callawayoffered an amendment to sec^^tion k, in substance that the governor shall^bave power to grant pardons except for^treason and impeachment The reason he^offered the amendment was that he wanted^no pardon for one who lifted his hand^against his country, or one who bad so far^forgotten himself as to be impeached and^convicted. The motion was put and lost. Sections was then adopted as a whole^as part of proposition No. 10. Hershfieldoffered as an additional clause^that the governor should have the author^^ity to suspend the treasurer during recess^and for thirty days after the commence^^ment of the legislature; provided be became^aware of wrong doing on the part of the^treasurer. It was temporarily withdrawn. Kickardsmoved the committee rise, re^^port progress and ask to sit again. Car^^ried. Collins,chairman of the committee of the^whole, reported and the committee re^^sumed. in motion ot Maginnis the convention^took a r. cess until H o'clock with the un^^derstanding that the same proposition^should be taken up. Eveningnescion. Onreconvening president Clark an^^nounced that further consideration of^proposition No. 10 was in order. Collins^resumed the chair. Itwas moved by Winston that Instead of^making two-thirds of the members present^in either house to override the veto of the^governor it should require two-thirds of^the members-elect. burleighcalled attention to a rale of^congress which required only two-thirds of^the members present. Maginnissaid the committee had been^very liberal with the governor and hoped^the section would stand. Winstonclaimed that the constitution of^the I luted Mates required two-thirds ol^the members. Maginnissaid that was interpreted by^congress to two-thirds of a quorum. Winston'samendment was put and lost Onmotion of Clark '-noes'' was changed^to ^nays^ in the eighth line of section 11. fioddardmoved to strike out section Is.^relative to the governor keeping accounts^of all moneys disbursed by the state officers,^on the ground that it was pure legislation. Middletonsupported Uoddard'e motion. Kurleighsaid it was an indispensable^provision. Hartman thought that the section was^-upcrtluous, and Callaway supported it. Ooddardsupported his motion, as did^Hershfield, who said it was simply lumber^^ing up the constitution with superfluous^matter. Know^ - said the section prescribed the^duties of the executive officers of the state,^and it was in the province of the constitu^^tion to adopt such a section. He hoped the^section would be retained. Goddard'smotion was nut and lost. ASafeguard. Hershfield'*additional section is in sub^^stance that the governor shall have^power during the recess of the^legislature and for thirty days after the as^^sembly meets for gross neglect of duty,^misfeasance or malfeasaace in office, and^have power to appoint a person to perform^the duties. Kickardsasked why other officers were^not included. Hershfieidsaid he had not thought of^that, as the state treasurer was the most^important financial officer of the state, and^if his substitute was considered fairly, he^thought it would be adopted. JudgeKnowles hoped nothing would go^in about neglect of duty, as the treasurer^iiad other duties besides that of taking care^of the moneys of the state. Biceford opposed tbe amendment on the^ground that it was another step towards^legislation. The state treasurer gave^bonds for the faithful performance of bis^duties, which must be prescribed by tbe^legislature, and when he assumed tbe du^^ties of his office he became amenable to^the laws. He was opposed to legislation^in any form in tbe constitution. Whitehilldid not see what good could be^done by incorporating such an amendment.^It would give the governor the right to^suspend a treasurer after he bad already^misappropriated moneys. Marshallsaid it was peculiarly a consti-^stutional porvision. A state treasurer was^provided fur by the constitution and the^legislature could not authorize tbe gov^^ernor to suspeud the treasurer. Clarksaid that all tbe safeguards in the^world should be thrown around those who^have public moneys in trust. Purloining^public moneys usually began in a small^way, and if they could be discovered In^time tbe provision offered by Hershfield^would prevent further peculation. burleighthought that bis illustrious^friend, Clark, had spoken more in behalf^of the sureties than the treasurer. He^would therefore move that aii amendments^relative to the question be laid upon the^table. Arerun, ut Inquiry. Kickardssaid if it was important to^throw safeguards around tbe treasurer,^why not around other officers Hershfieldsaid the treasurer was the^only state officer that bandied the state^funds. Hershtield'samendment was put and lost Maginnis'addition to section r.. ^The^legislature many provide for the temporary^suspension of the state treasurer by the^governor when the board of examiners^considers such action necessary for the^protection of the moneys ot the state was^carried. Conradoffered an additional section^which provides that the governor may ap^^point a state examiner, by and with con^^sent of the senate, whose duties it shall be^to examine the accounts of the state trea^^surer, supreme court clerk, district court^clerks and county treasurers. It was^withdrawn in order to tack onto the report^of the legislative convention. Kickardsmoved that when the commit^^tee arise it report back proposition No. 10,^with tbe recommendation that it pass as^amended. Carried. Onmotion of Burleigh the committee^rose the convention resumed Collins, chair^^man reported and tbe amendments were^read. Movesto Amend. Maygermoved to further amend section^4 by making the salary of the governor^$4,000 Instead of S5.0UU. Maginnismoved to adjourn, as it was not^right to take snap judgment on the mem^^bers absent. Lost. Collin'smoved to amend Mayger's^amendment by substituting S2.5O0, for^54.000. He said the duties of tbe office of^governor were purely ornamental anyway.^He did but little work, not near what other^state officers did. Tbe state could not afford^to pay any man a salary for the honor^connected wit:, it. We ahould only pay for^the services we get. Thegist of Collins' remarks. Maginnis^said, was that nobody but a rich man^should hold tbe office of governor. This^would knock out every poor man. The^salary of ^5,000, as fixed by the committee,^was little enough. Burleighgrew facetious. He said the^governor should receive a salary large^enough to enable him to entertain royally,^so as to make the office a stepping stone for^higher political honors^I'nited States sen^^ator, for instance. W hen the time came he^would move that the salary of the gover^^nor be increased to S 10,000. Kickardstook the ground that $5,000 was^little enough for the governor on Montana.^He believed in paying a liberal salary to^all state officers, so as to allow any man if^qualified, whether poor or rich, to bold^office.

Plumb,of^Helens NowIn senator1'. B. Plumb, of Kansas, arrived^in the city yesterday, and was taken in^charge by ex-Gov. Hauaer, whose guest be^will be during his visit which will last for^several days. Toan Independent reporter Senator^Plumb said, last evening, that this was his^first visit to Helena, but not to Montana.^During IMS be was in charge of a troop of^regulars who gave battle to the reds along^the Tongue and Powder rivers, in Custer^county. Heis a member of the senate committee^on irrigation, now in St Paul, and expect/^to meet the rest of the delegation in Hel^^ena. He said the object of the committee^mi ttee was to collect statistics and ascer^^tain all the facts of the condition of the^arid lands in the northwest territories, also^tbe amount of water available for irriga^^tion purposes, and to investigate the^feasibility of establishing storage reser^^voirs. He a.so said the government might^aink a tew artesian wells to see at what^depth a at r can be secured, and. in short^to publish the exact condition of the arid^regions fur the benefit of those who may^desire to invest capital tor tbe reclamation^of these lands to agricultural purposes.^When asked if the government would^build any storage reservoirs, the senator^blandly replied that the government was^not going into the water business just yet^but it would undoubtedly set apart land for^reservoirs. SenatorPlumb is interested in the Moui-^ton Mining company at Butte, and is,^therefore, an advocate of silver, and is in^sympathy with the mining interests of the^northwest Upon the subject of politics^he had but little to say, only that be^hoped .Montana would go republican^at the next election. He was^aware that she gave a repute^lican majority of something like 5,000 last^tall, and was also aware that at tbe election^tor constitutional convention delegates she^elected a democratic majority. He said^pontics at present were the least of his^t rouhies, and that be is no more posted on^the situation than he is of China's political^complexion. While in Salt Lake a tew^days ago tbe senator expressed some views^on the matter of freight rates on ores^shipped to Omaha and Kansas City smelt^^ers which covers tbe Montana situation^exactly in the matter of ores shipped to the^Montana smellers. It costs about as much^to ship ore to Denver and (^u a. i as it does^to any Montana smelter. He expressed^surprise that the people of Utah would sit^still and see the Union Pacific make such^high rates to the Utah smelters and such^very low rates to tbe Omaha and Kansas^City smelters. He had been told that ores^could be shipped to tbe river from tbe^northwest country cheaper than to Salt^Lake, and thought that if that was the^case the matter should be laid^before the interstate railroad com^^mission. It ought to be stopped.^Tbe senator failed to see why^the well-being of tins territory should be^made to s ffer because of the whim of a^railroad. Tbe lacteal fluid in tbe tropical^fruit, however, he thought might be this:^Officers of the Union Pacific were person^^ally interested in the Omaha and Kansas^City smelters. And, perhaps, after all, as^wise a plan as any would be to give Union^Pacific officials an interest in tbe .Salt Luke^smelters. Then justice would be done tbis^region. SenatorPlumb is a G. A. R. man. and^notwithstsnding his conspicuous position^in the nation's affairs, is a thorouuhly un^^assuming and sociable gentleman and looks^nothing like the cartoon purported to rep^^resent him tbat appeared iu tne Herald.

THE WEST GRANITE. TheSame Old Deal to Be Transacted Over^Agwin. Anotherchapter of the West Granite^serial was written yesterday and an addi^^tional one will be written on Oct 5, the^date set for a stockholders meeting. Messrs.J. J. Taussig and J. U. Dieck-^man. with H. Giesel. one of the newly^elected directors, arrived from St Louis^Saturday, didn't register at a hotel and yes^^terday attended a meeting of the trustees^of tbe West Granite Mountain Mining com^^pany. The meeting was held in pursuance^of the recommendation of a majority of the^stockholders at their meeting a week ago,^for the purpose of receiving propositions^for tbe advantageous disposition of tbe^company's property. Among the proposi^^tions was one from St Louis offering^to pay the company's debt of $50,000^and to receive a mortgage^to run five years, bearing the legal rate of^interest As tbe company's debt is already^secured by a mortgage on tbe property,^held by the First National bank, of this^city, the proposition soou found its way^into the waste basket and Mr. Taussig^submitted a proposition from a St Louis^syndicate, which is similar to tbat present^^ed and accepted at the meeting of March^20, which is to advance $150,000, one-third^of which is to liquidate the debt the bal^ance to be designated as working capital:^and to reorganize the company with a cap^^italization of 500.000 shares, one-half of^which is to go to tbe syndicate, and the^West Granite stock now out will be re^^turned to the secretary on a basis of two^shares of West Granite for one in the new^corporation, which will undoubtedly^be called the Elizabeth. The con^^tract which was entered into by tbe^old board with tbe Granite Mountain syn^^dicate was ratified, and a meeting of the^stockholders ot tbe company was ordered^to be called for October 5th, 188V, to vote on^the proposition, whether to accept it. or^sell tbe properties of tbe company tor cash.^There is no doubt but that the old contract^will be ratified, as yesterday's action of^the board was brought about at the request^of a large number of the stockholders who,^it is claimed, petitioned the board to adopt^this course. The result of the petition,^representing as it does a majority of the^stock and being practically sufficient to^carry tbe syndicate proposition, really de^^termines the future of tbe company.

Hundley returned from the^effete east Sunday, and wore a weather^beaten Kentucky Derby hat. He was busy^all day receiving the congratulations oi his^fneDdson the success of Spokane over the^eastern cracks. Speaking of tbe horse's de^^feat by Proctor Knott in the Sheridan stakes^be said tbat Spokane was not in condition^for that event, and besides, the weight was^piled up on him. His hard work in the^mud in tbat race knocked bim out for tbe^St Paul Derby, and as he Is booked for^better and richer eastern events, he did not^think it wise to risk the chance or accident^to the horse, and the principal reason t r^not shipping him to st Paui was that he^needed rest Mr. Armstrong was anxious^to ship tbe horse to St Paul just to pleas,^tbe people who would be there to see the^double Derby winner, but Col. Hundley^and tbe trainer made him abandon this^idea sj okane is now at Saratoga and will^run this week, and his next prominent an^pearance will be for the valuable 3 year^old stakes at Westchester, wiuc'i will he^run on August 20. Asked li Spokane was^lor sale, be said he was not It was the^first racehorse Montana ever produce.:,^and be would continue a Montana property.^It is expected Spokane will win plenty of^money oefore tbe season is over. A num^^ber of fancy offers were made for tbe^horse, but they were as promptly refused,^and Spokane is not for sale. FrancisPope, secretary of the M. A. M.^A M.

R Baker,^he said, is out of luck with his stable.^The trouble was he did no; start for St.^Paul early enough to work bis horses and^when he did get there the track seemed to^be always occupied bj trotters, the result^being that the runners haa but little op^^portunity to work. The cumate didn't^agree with them either and when X aud^Nevada were there a few days they^got off and were utterly unfit to race. Mr.^Pope says tbat X was a sure winner of the^Derby if in condition, as be has done as^good and better than 2:10 while working on^the Helena track. When the horses pas-ed^ihe, mile post X was in tbe lead, but being^unfit be fell back at the hot pace and caiue^In last Mr. Pope said tbe Twin City^Derby- was run in no better than^2:11; he timed the race and so did many^others with the same result He noticed,^however, that it seemed to be the purpose^of tbe timers to give the track from a bait^to one second belter than tbe time made in^neatly every race. Speaking of Nevada,^he said Mr. Baker was very much disap^^pointed at his luck, as with her in condi^^tion he expected to win the Twin City im^^position slakes. turfnotes.
