New Wt, Minneapolis: Baldwin and I.alace, r~e liocteDermott, Ultte; Leland Hotel, d* you writing your speech to be do rerd before the irrigation convention? Ta~rsTi LOOK~ Y is right. The man igement of our school affairs should be vestigated. And it should be an in tigation that investigates and not a 5 1n- --·--·-·- r a numerous republicans who do want to see Benjamin Harrison re inated may as well transfer their af tiope to Major Wmin. McKinley. Aine will not be in it. Lw PAanTrxas MILLI did not get oneof tite United States circuit judge abipsp. He is evidently being saved for a iiat on the supreme bench in place IofField, or whoever retires first. 'Cnur.xA. s will not be a perfect insti tution on this earth until every human being too poor to buy a Christmas pres eot is the recipient of one, and the well " to do are self-denying enough to forego gifte for themselves. ' . T Missoulian jumps to the front of the republican newspaper procession in :,iontana by declaring that "Harrison has not made one mistake." This is a stronger position than even the Helena TJournal has yet taken. S T Christmas night entertainment ti'6he opera house, given by the man sgees of the Working Women's home, should draw an audience that will fill tvery seat. The institution is a most worthy one, and it needs every dollar that it can get to to maintain it. ,Tar republican majority in the Unlited States senate apparently has the same opinion of the two frauds from Montana that the majority of the peo pli of Montana hold. On no other theory can the studied failure to give this state important committee chair mainships be accounted for. THE friends of good government and decency everywhere, regardless of poli tiie, will sympathize with the honest people of Louisiana in their efforts to statmp the life out of the lottery hydra., Tjh. growth of this monster has been alatiming, and the news of its death will be reassuring to the friends of American institutions. T.H Washington Post's story that E.)ins asked Blaine's permission to take the appointment of secretary of war from President Harrison is fishy asgd improbable. Elkins has been in the habit of taking whatever was in sight without asking anybody's permission. 1.'probably knows that Mr. Harrison will be renominated, and proposes to have a hand in the next campaign. THE Oregonian says that Wisconsin has almost given up hop growing and New York is preparing to follow her ex ample. Oregon and Washington, on the other hand, are just developing their wonderful capacity in this direction, and will soon grow hops for the entire country. Incidentally we may remark that Montana will raise enough of the best barley in the world to blend with the hops raised by our noighbors. UNDER the new apportionment bMon tana will have six delegates to the re publican national convention at Minne apolhe. We suppose the list will be something like this: Russell B. Harri son, chairman, Thomas H. Carter. T. C. Power, W. F. Sanders, H. P. Rolfe and George U. Eaton---four Harrison men and two Blaine men. The fact that there are only four Harrison men in the state will prevent the sending of a solid delegation for the man from Indiana. ADVERTISEuI R are encroaching on our space somewhat for a few day, but as usual Sunday's INEISF:'NDErr. will be the best newspaper published between Chicago and Puget sound. It will con contain all the news of the world, special correspondence from all the news centers at honme and abroad, stories, gossip, society events and other features of a great metropolitan Sunday daily. Advertisers delayed us in getting to press last week, and we must request that new advertisements, or changes in old ones, be handed in not later than noon to-day. A aoo0 deal of fun has been poked at Lord Randolph Churchill for some of his comments in his series of South African letters to the London Graphic, but in his latest letter he expresses an opinion regarding investments in that country which is eminently sound. He says: "What I have seen since I commenced nay travels in South Africa has led me to the cooclasion that ro more unwise and unsafe spesulation exists than the invest meat of money in the exploitation of syn dioates here. It may be that many of those et, at work here or on their way out. Most fttihose which have come under my notice have had their money finally wasted and their busness property mismanaged, Winly, however, owing to good fortune, -0oo4 ac'vieo and the excellent qualities of Shse who are oodueting my expedition, I a name M the lit is, that of Judpge WoOds, ef elae whose rul Sings in the dase tf BiookeotaFive Duad Sley indicate that he is a partisan of a small type. The two democrats named by Mr. Harrison, George M. Dallas, of Pennsylvania, and W. L. Putnam, of Maine, are men of high character and fine legal abilities. And so are Judge Shipman, of Connecticut, and William M. Taft, of Ohio, republicans. Mr. Goff, of West,Virginia, is a clever politician but not a great lawyer. On the whole a the appointmenta will give satisfaction to the respective parties. Ir Mr. Blaine's reciprocity sohemne is pot knocked in the head by the supreme court it will be surprising. When this feature of the McKinley bill was under consideration by the senate, Messrs. Edmunds and ]Evarts, the great oonsti- I tutional lawyers of that body, emphat ically declared that legislative powers could not be conferred upon the execu tive. Yet news comes from Washington that the president, under authority con- t ferred upon him by the reciprocity i clause of the McKinley law, is about to issue a proclamation restoring the duties on sugar, coffee, tea and molasses im ported from countries that have not made treaties with the United States. i The proposition that the president of 1 the United States may impose or remove 8 duties at his pleasure is monstrous. The constitution nowhere expressly con- d fers such authority upon him, and had it been proposed to the framers of that instrument to give him such powers, the suggestion would have met with no favor. We believe that a test case taken to the supreme court of the United States would bring forth a decision sup. i porting the views so ably maintained by d Edmunds, Evarts and all other sound constitutional authorities. Congress alone has the power to impose taxes and raise the revenues, and it cannot es delegate its authority. WATEhR RIGOT J The Portland Oregonian, in answer ing a correspondent who insists that private correspondents must not be m allowed to get control of water rights in the arid districts, contends that "it is w a stupid perversion to treat the transac- to tion between the water companies and i settlers as sale of water. The company or does not sell the water; it merely col- a lects a charge for carrying it, as a rail- th road does for carrying potatoes or lum- , ber." It holds that the work of build- b inug ald maintaining irrigating canals . which involves a vast expenditure of money is beyond private enterprise and must be done by organized capital. A parallel case is that of the land grant railroad. Nearly all the land west of the Mississippi river thirty years ago was valueless to settlers because it could not be opened to the markets of the world. "To create such a market," says the Oregonian, "railroads had to be A built at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars. To induce corporations to build these roads land grants were made. These grants enriched some companies though they did not save others from bankruptcy.' But they enriched set tlers through all the country opened by the land grant road ten times as much u in the aggregate, though there are in. dividual settlers who have not pros- D pered. So with Water in irrigable dis- D tricts. Ilis valuless now. It will have untold value when it is spread over the i arid lands. .Every settler cannot build 'Y ail independent ditch through his farm I any more than he can build an indepen- A dent road to market. The water com pan;es will not undertake the work which is to give value to the water now public, by taking it where it is wanted R unless they may realize a revenue from the enterprise by collecting money for the carriage. But for every dollar made by the water companies the settlers on irrigated lands will make a hundred." i There is much truth in the Oregonian's N observation. The solution of the irri- I gation problem lies in devising a scheme j which will not drive out capital seeking , investment in irrigating enterprises while affordiing settlers on the arid lands protection from possible oppres sion by water or land companies.- The Montanian who can compass such a scheme will be entitled to the lasting gratitude and remembrance of his fel low men. IN HOTEL LOBBIES. Mr. L. C. Fvbrie, of Dillon, is constantly reminded of his resemblance to Martin Holter, of this city. At a distance of sev eral feet this is really striking. Both have long beards tinged with gray, forms of about the same height, and each wears an easy fitting soft felt hat. Mr. Fyhrie has often been taken for his double, and says it is not an uncommon occurrence for a stranger to slap him on the back in an un concerned way and say, "How are you, Martin," As is also well known, he is one of the leading business men of southern Montana, and isalqo heavily interested in the new town of Columbia Falls. He says this has been a most prosperous year for Beaverhead and adjacent counties, and the reople are looking for great results. Mr. A. S. Appleton, publisher of "In the Swim," of Chicago, and Judge Fry, of Se attle, who is interested in the publication, have been at the Merchants' several days. The judge will leave to-day to spend Christ mas at home, but will return to Helena. '.hey propose to devote a large part of a special edition of the paper to an illustrated article on Montana and Helena, provided the proper encouragement is received. Jrdge Fly, like all ieattle men, grows en thusiastic when talking of the city on the sound. He mentions one illustration of Seattle enterprise worthy of note. A pro ject to build a great ship canal from the sound into Lake Washington has been talked of some time.
