POWER TO ISSUE BONDS.
Supreme Court Deoldes That Mis. soula County Had Authority to Do So. Judgment Affirmed Against Ool Raymond in the Gambling House Case, Cascade and Dawson County Courts Ie versed-United States and )istrict. Court lDulness. The supreme court yesterday decided that the commissioners of Missoula county have the power to Issue bonds to redeem the outstanding indebtedness of the county. L. C. Hotohkins appealed the case from the ruling of Judge Marshall, of MIssoula. which is affirmed. The main issue was whether the board of county commission ers had the authority to redeem the out standing indebtedness of Missoula county by issning bonds for the warrants repre senting the indebtedness without first sub mitting the question to the electors. On Sept. 11, 1891, the commissioners ordered that coupon bonds to the amount of $150, 000 be issued to redeem the outstanding warrants. The bonds were to be of the de nomination of $1,000 and to bear date of Jan. 1, 1892, and be redeemed in twenty years, with six per cent interest, payable semi-annually. The commissioners pro vided for the advertisement of the bonds in Missoula county and New York city, and required each bidder to give a certified check for $2,500 as an evi dence of good faith. At a special term held.by the commissioners oniJan. 2}1, 1892, the date of the sale was changed to Feb. 28, 1892, and on that day the sealed bids were opened and the award made to'E. H. Rollins & Sons. The floating indebtednes of the county at the time the orders were made was about $172,171.31, represented by county warrants, which are not interest bearing unless presented to the treasurer and endorsed, as plovided by law. -lotch Iisa claimed that the commissioners did not submit the question of the issuance of the bonds to the qualified electors of Mis soula county, and that the action of the commissioner was void, and asked that the bonds be declared illegal. When the case was heard at Missoula before District Judge C. 8. Marshall, Hotchkiss sought to procure a perpetual injunction against the commissioners through his counsel, Mc Connell, Clayberg & Gunn, of Helena. F. C. Webster, the county attorney of Mis socla county, filed a demurrer to the appli cation, which was sustained by Judge Marshall. ODinion by Blake, chief justice. In the appeal of George W. Raymond, who was convicted of conduoting a gamb ling house contrary to law and fined $300, the supreme court holds that the issuance of a gambling license which purported to take effect several days before would not bar a criminal prosecution; hence judgment of the lower court is affirmed. Opinion by DeWitt, and concurred in by Blake and Harwood. Henry T. Berg vs. the Boston and Mon tana Mining company. Judgment reversed and the cause remanded for a new trial. Opinion by DeWitt. The court says it cannot be held that the lower court was justifiedintaking the matter from the jury and considering the case as an undisputed question of fact. Berg was emuloyed by the Boston and Montana Mining company, and sued that corporation at Great Falls for $10,000 damages for alleged permanent injuries. He was at work with a number of other men blasting rook. One of the blasts was fourteen feet below the surfao. After the fuse was lit all hands went to a shanty at a safe distance away. In about ten minutes the foremen directed the men to return to the place where the blast was, saying it was "dead." Berg was among the first to reach the hole. As he did so the charge went off. He escaped with a broken leg and ankle and several bruises. On the trial at Great Falls he claimed that he was permanently disabled. The attorneys for the defendant made a motion for a non-suit, which was granted. The state vs. Richard Kief. The indict ment alleges that Kief stole two mares at Wolsey, Canada, on August 13, 1888, valued at $200, from Robert Mitchell, and brought them into Dawson county, Montana, in October following. Upon the trial below the court instructed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty on the ground that no evidence had been offered to prove that the taking of the property in Canada was a violation of the law of that country. The judgment is reversed and the case remanded for a new trial. Opinion by Blake, chief justice. THE ARGENTA MINING CASE. Company IIad the Power to Mortgage the Property. Judge Knowles overruled a demurrer yes terday in the case of S. L. Campbell, of St. Paul, against the Argenta Gold and Silver Mining company, of Beaverhead county, and several other defendalte. Campbell's bill of complaint was brought to foreolose a mortgage on real property of the defend ant in Beaverhead county which is alleged to be a plier lion to the claims of the other defendants. T'lhe P.J. Kelly Placer and Quartz Mining and Reduction company was the owner of the property. It becanme involved and judgments were obtained against it and which the company was una ble to liquidate., Another company was formed and it was agreed that the property of the Kelly company should be conveyed to the new company, and an arlangement made by whichi it should become tile prop esty of the new comle any freed from tihe liens of the judgment creditors. The new company was to issue bondo to the amount of $75,000, which should be a first mortgage upon thre propert. I piureuancno of this agleement the indebtedness of the Kelly company was assigned to one It. lHowes, who conrveyed it to the new corForntion and received $75,000 in first mortgage bonds and e mortgage to eo core their paiyment. Some rf the creditors of the Kelly company rreceived some of these bonds in iaymenrt of their claims, the remainder were sold rand the proceeds applied to thie payment of the company clhime which had beien assigued to Howeas. About $2,000 was received in excess of the amounrt required to settle thr Kelly company olaimse, rand this w.s turned over to the laeatna oomupaRny, w'hicr used it in mining onuerations. The real controvesy is as to the varlidity of the first mI, t.ngge of the Argeenta com pany to lorwes. Ir rnrasinlg upOnl the do murrer Judge Knowles says: "I think that when t conrtract i within thie porwer of aI corporation to perform, and its ennta have not followed the mode proscribed, the contract must be cosidered voidableri only and not void.

TEMPEST IN A TEA POT, Judge Buck's Characterization of the Controversy About Little Linnie Connor. The IFather Retains Custody of Her, Subject to the Court's Orders. Judicalll Advice Upon the Propriety of Bringing Nelghborhood Brawls Into the District Court, Judge Buck's department of the district court was taxed to its limit yesterday morning at 10 o'elook, the hour set for the hearing on the return of the restraining order issued Saturday evening on the petition of Linnie Connor asking for the removal of her father as guardian of her person, and the appointment of another. There was a fair sprinkling of ladies and a large represeantation from the immediate neighborhood of the Connor residence. Linnie Conner, the petitioner, a young girl who, by her answers on the stand displayed a good deal of brightness and intelligent mental aptness and comprehension, sat by her counsel, Miss Ella L. Knowles. During the entire day's proceedings she preserved her self-possession, and seemed intently interested in the proceedings, but during the summing up of Col. Nolan she broke down and wept copiously. The first witness was John T. Ford, who testified to seeing the father and stepmother of the girl dragging her through the street on the night of April 11, and saw the father strike Linate in the head with his fist, and when the girl screamed her stepmother put her hand over her mouth. Mrs. Ida M. Hall testified to seeing Lin nie beat with tepee, straps and a stick, and also to giving Linnie clothes and raiment of different kinds, claiming that she was in sufeiiently attired. Mrs. Ward testified that Mrs. Connor tgld her to tell Linnie not to come back home; that if she did she would kill her. She said Linnie's reoputation was good. Col. Nolan endeavored to elicit the fact from the witness that she had had some trouble with the Connors, growing out of contemplated divorce proceedings between witness and her husband, and succeeded. Several other witnesses testified to the fact that the child was beaten, and one wit ness testified to seeing a black and blue mark on the child's body, presumably from a beating. Linnie Conner said she was 15 years old and lived with her father and step-mother. She substantially repeated the averments set out in her petition, and said she had been frequently beaten by her father and step-mother, but said she deserved the pun ishment on some occasions. She had been beaten with ropes, broomsticks and any thing that was handy. She testified that she had been kicked by her father and step mother. The day she left home she had a waist on under her outer garment, it was old and unfit to wear on the outside of her dress and she had worn it underneath her dress to make her form look better. Her step-mother was going to punish her for this "if she hadn't made for the door." IHer step-mother picked up her wraps that she had dropped in her exit from the house, threw them after her and told her never to come back again. Her father had beaten her mtet severely. She had been whipped for breaking dishes-that was one of her I faults. On Christmas day, when she had been chastised she had broken a dish that her stepmother had received for a wedding present. Her father usually beat her at the suggestion of her stepmother. Her step mother treated her kindly until about a 1 year after her father was married. She was in grade seven in the Jefferson school and wanted to remain there. She did not want to go to St. Peter's mission because she un derstood it was an Indian sohool, and she did not want to be a Catholic, but wanted to remain a Christian. On crose-examina tion Linnie said that her father had never to her best recollection struck her with his closed hand, but had done so with his open hand. He had whipped her for not being neat in person and for breaking dishes. She had gone one night to Mabel Best's house, unknown to her parents, to give her the address of a male friend. Shereturned a about eight o'clock. Her brother had seen her walking with another girl and a male friend one night and that hadcreated some trouble. The girl was a member of the I Congregational church and the male friend r was a proper person. He simply saw them home. She had destroyed some under clothes of her own on one occasion because she was afraid to let her parents see them. Dr. Balvail testified that Linnie was sub ject to epilepsy, and he thought that to I cross her feelings by placing her in aseohool i unwillingly would tend to aggravate her nervous trouble. He thought it would seriously affect the child's health to beat her or subject her to violent excitement. Several of the neighbors testified to the child being beaten, and said that her cloth ing was insufficient. Charles H. Connor, the father of the girl, was the first witness put on the stand in defense, and testified that he had never ill used the child in any way. That she was Sinclined to be wayward and disobedient, Sand he had chastised her, but with nothing more formidable than a trunk strap. iHe exercised nothing but a reasonable parental control. Of late Linnis had evinced a dis Sposition to disobey, and when spoken to would not answer. She was obstinate and overbearing, and whenever he punished her it was not unreasonably. The girl had been :urged on in a . course of disobedience to himself and his wife by intermeddling neighbors who were his personal enemine, and who endeavored to embitter his ohild IaRainst him. He wished to send her to St. Peter's school unless some better ar rangemuents could be made. He was will ingr the child should be placsd any where where officious neighbors and enemies would not have access to her. He was her father and had natural affection for his child and desired to see her brought up properly. The witness, on oross-examui nation, was pressed to give the cause of the tiouble between the neighbors, and narrat ed a very unsavory piece of gossip relating to Mrs. Hall and her husband and the cause of their divorce proceedings, unftit for pub lication. The stepmother, Mrs. Conner, and the sister-in-law, Miss Euphemia West, were then put on the stand, and corroborated the boy. Linnio's brother testifled to Lin nie's provoking disobedieonce and wilful venialities. She had never been unduly or severely chastisod, and whenever she had she deseorved it. 'lhere were times when she deserved it that she was not chastised, but mildly reproved. An array of witnesses testiLed to the ex cellent character of Uosesor anst his tenere-r nuoe and eodoeration. Several testified they did not believe it possible that Collnor, from their obsarertion of huim, would ill treat his child. A blarder in the hourse nrd a dressmuker who had spent a good portionn of her time int the famsily, contradicted the stories of brutality ansd violence. 'leh family seemed to be opposed to ]iinnio, and their testimony shlowed her to be somewhat pert and disobledient, while the entire reoighborhood alnmost sided with the girl.

The IReply Thalt Seets tire tanolmrnen I'llh ' VegYtalles to eull. C T'o T'll' I.nravani,NT: There is a class of people, who In a measure, are decondent on Helena, and upon whom in a much r greater measure Helena is dependent, that f are much interested in the Chinese agita tion. They are the people, who, when Helena is shouting, "buy Helena soap," "buy HIlena crackers," will be among the first to respond, They are the farmers and ranchmen around Helena, and they would ask tle privilege of a chance to compete with Mr. Chinaman. At p:eesent they dont get the chance. At a former meeting of the labor people or union (1 believe it was the labor party), one of the speakers after a very fierce and war-like denunelation of the Chinese, said in what I fanny must have been a most apologetic tone, "of course we have to buy ourvegetables from the Chinaman." What a remark to make, and fifty ranshmen within five miles of Helena with their cellars full of vegetables they can't sell. Of course a poor farmer mast not get a white shirt laundried by a Chinaman, and would hardly dare to show himself in a pair of pants made by a Chinese tailor, but, "of course we have to buy our vegetables from the Chinaman." I tell you it is pretty discouraging for the farmer, starting out in the morning with a load of fresh, solid vegetables, and meeting at house after house the answer. "Oh, we buy our vege tables from Chinamen," or, "Oh, the Chi naman sells five cents a hundled cheaper than that." As a young farmer told me re cently, "I wouldn't mind being refused on the ground that nothing was needed at present, with the prospect of making a sale at some future time, but to be always met with he Chinaman cry is more than I can stand." If the people knew the methods of the Chinaman gardener, perhaps they wouldn't be so ready to buy from him. The proper way to get rid of the China man is for everyone to let him strictly alone. Neither hire nor buy anything from him and the problem will solve itself. There must be at least 100 Chinamon in Helena dependent on the vegetable busi ness. If the people will refuse to buy from them there will of necessity be that many less. itAcaMAns. A carload of Clhurcb's Improved Alabas tine just received by U5. M. Parclen & Co.
