THE UNIVERSITY BILL,
Consolidation and Segregation Had Their First Innings in the Senate Yesterday. Fight on the Question of the Lo cation of the University of Montana. After Three Hours Debate the irleads of Segregation acore a Vietory in Com mittee of the Whole. For the first time slne the balloting for United States senator began, there was a combination of ci oumstances yesterday that would have enabled the democrats, with the easistance of Heon. A. J. Davidson, to haysve elected their man, had they been united, without the aid of any of the popu list members; or, with the addition of one of the populists, and without Davidson, to have accomplished the same rlsunlt Two of the republican members of the house were absent, one, C. H. Bray, being belated on a snow bound street oar, and the other, Joseph Annear, being unaccounted for. Davidson being still sick and not in at tendance, the total vote was oven sixty eight, so that it would have taken thirty five to elect. Banders, of course. got the votes of all the thirty-one republicans gresent. Clark had twenty-five votes, including that of Beecher, the Cascade county populist, who thus made good his statepient of the day before that he had never said he wouldn't do anything of the kind. Clark's twenty-four other votes were given by democrats, Dixon got twelve votes, seven from demooratio members of the honue, two from populists in that body, and three from democratic members of the senate. In the latter classifioation was senator Gbh eon, who, with Beecher, had left Collins. The ten democrats who voted for Dixon. the twenty-four who voted for Clark, and the absent Davidson, would have made the thirty-five necessary to elect had they all been together. The ten Dixon democrat, and the twenty-five Clark votes, one of which was cast by a populist, would have brounht about the same result. Consolidation vs. segregation was on trial in the senate yesterday in committee of t: e whole, and the verdict was for eeuregatiot. The bill before the committee was that lo eating the state uninersity at Missoula. Benator Gibson offered,an amendmantwhich meant if Missoula got the university shLe would have to give in return 160 acres o: land and $40,000 in cash. The senator said that he fully believed the location of the state educational institutions were a valuable thing for any community by offer ing on behalf of Great Falls for the con solidated Institutions 320 acres of land and $100,000 in cash. The committee howerve, did not look with favor on the amendment and rej oted it. Then the light came on the main question, and it lasted for three hours, The questions of consolidation and segregation were dis cussed from every standi oint, and the sen ators and the lobby spectators were treate s to as fine a debate es ever occupied the at tention of a legislative body in Montana. tenato; Gibson was fortified with innumer able authorities in favor of consolidation, and though he made the fight sing.e handed and alone, he marshalled his lor.ci in such a way and showed so clearly hli sincerity on the position he had taken a. t,: gain the reseect and hold the attention, It he di. not the vote of the oppositionI. H. knew he was making a losing fight, but it did not seem to take a whit away from the. earnestness with which be made his pl,la for consolidation. Fanator Matte led the fo oos for segreort ion. lie was ably seconded by renrtorrl Hoffman and McDermott, but on the Mia. sonla senator devolved the burdon of an swering the argurments of the sonator from Cascade. He, too. had p ep red hil author ties, and the way he s aored the peo pie who p spared the address on the stat educational institutions was a caution. His argument was to show that the add cs was misleading in that it contained onl the opinions of univernity presidents. lit made a strong , resentation of the advan taees to be derived in separating the tech nical schools Irom the university. The bill was ordered favorably reported. The consolidation. agricolt: al, and school or mince bills are vet to be conriderid, but it is probable that they will not take as much time as the university bill. The fight fo segregation was made on it, and as it won, it is rIobable thbt the other will be qui-tln act.d a on in the a note. at ,east. With a recess of a littl ovae an hour for dinne', the house was in continuous session from 10 o'clock in the morning until a fee minutes before six in the afte noon. The dat's session was not wasted, either, whlel it is considered that one of the two bills which have alwa s ocrused long dienusnions, was gotten out of the way, wrille the other was advanced to a stage where it will caune no further t ouble. The one that was got ten out of the way was the bill establishing a burean of agriculture, labor and industry, with an immigration attachment. It wa passed with only four votes against it. It was discove ed during the discussion precedini the perasage of th bill, that there was no record on the hou.e jon nal of its ever having been seported back from committee of ttre whole. 'I he bill was favorably re orted from com mittee of the whole on Friday Ilst. and the omission of that fact from the ouiloinl pro rcedings does not affect it in any war'. The other bill that has beers causing consider. able discussion is that appropriatlng nione, for the world's fair exhibit. It was gotten through the colnmittee of the whole with a $50,000 appropriattlou, mind no more. )u ing its discussion Itepresentative Look ey mode some comtments on the fact that World's Fair Clomissionor Biekford wea present on the floor of the house and intimated that the commissioner was acting as a lobbriet when he ought to be out earning his $8,000 a year. When the house adjourned it is said Commllssioner Bickford spoke a few lines to IReptesents. irve Lackey which were not at all compli mentary. 'I he house got another new county bill, that for Bitter hIoot, through committ'ee of tile whole, and It will next come up on its fiHat passage. The ways and means committee introdocei. a bill making the state tax levy two and one-half mills. That an extra session of the leisl.ature was likely has been a matter of rumor io; some time. In the ounoe of his remarks on the earlirltu al bureau bill in the house yesterday. Judge Bach gave out the in formation that it had been Info malls de cided to call an extra sessoon for thirty days. The object, he stated, was the con emderatlon of the new codes, It has been generally conceded by all who have given the matter any attention, that the legisla ture, even it it had begun work on the codes the Arst day, could not have given those balky volumes the consideration they requioe in the saity days of the restn sos sion, and looked after other and ne eary business at the same time. The pro sod extra session of thirty days, now the i it members are beglnning to learn the ways of legislation, would give them time to prop. erly dimest the tomes, if there was nothing else to do. An extra asession, it is estrl mated, will cost about $26,000. THE HUNt ri. The 1Bill Lonating thie State University at Mllssnula Favorably Reeommended. The senate held two sessions yesterday, anrd ns a ,esult one of the educational in stitution bills, that bloating the state nnl. versit. at Missoula, went through the com mittee of the whole. It was at the afternoon seasion that the university bill came n , in committee of the whole, with Menator Hatch in the chair. The bill was r ad by seotions, and there was no objection until the twelfth section was reachý'd. This 'onsted the university at Missouln. Senator Gibson offered an amendment pro viding that it be located at Missonin it tihe Oltizens of that city would donate 100 acres of 1 nt for a sit, and give $40,000 as an en dowment. The Cascade senator said he offered the amendment in the interest of the state of Montana. "It in not," said the senator, "an unusual thting in locuting such Institations to put such a condition as I propose in the bill loanting them. For two years Missoula has been t 'ing to get tire univesity. I believe there are gentlemen here who sae morre anxious to have the university located at ialssoula than they are to advance tit oapes of higher education. There are other cities in the state equally as advantageous in every resieot as Missoula that will gardly give to lhave such an institution lo cati:d in their midst all I propose in the amendment I have offered. This idea of locating the state tniversity at one plaoe, the school of mines at another, the agri cultural college at another, and the norm,aI school at another, is not in the interest of hliherr education, bit in the interest of these several cities." 'I he senator then quoted from the report of the bureau of ed cation at Washingtou statistics to show that in the states of Colorado, A: heanas. Nevard,, Texas. Illinois, In diana, Olhio, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Marine and Massachusetts donations of land and endowments of money had been made a condition precedent to the location of state institutions of learning. Continuing Sonrator Gibson said: "1 want to say that I believe that there are other cities equally .s beautiful. equally as healthful and quall, as advarrntareously located as Mis Sit' t it are willing to n-ce' t the amsud ment I have offered and take the state urv.errrty. I Wil r.o fit.tear and say fo: he city of Great Falls that if you will lo eats there the combined educational insti tutions the citizens of that city will donate 120 icrns of land within two miles of the city limits and aive an endowment of $100, 000 and are p epa ed to give bonds ta oa. ry out this agreement. I have now in my possession Ippers that will satisfy any seu ,tor that the agreement wi I be kept on the part of the citizens of that city." :-enator Matte, epeakinr in behalf of his motion to inlefinitely Iostpone coneiderr tron of Mr. Gibson's amendment, said: "I Iam ot surp ised ,t the itosition taken by the senator from Cascade. I regret, how ever, that he has pursued a meroenary course in regard to the location of the state i.stitutione. This legislature has no right to eel, to the highest bidder the education al institutions of the state. 1 submit that it is the duty of the legislature to locate these institutions on the merits of the towns of the state. I am he e to offer .iissounl as the plase offerinv the beast in ucemrnte for the location of the state 'rniv," itay. If it is a quertion of sale, let Bozeman, UutteandHelena have tihe chance to vid. The university should be located whio e the conditions are fitted to it; the agricultural college should be located in the ueit an.rioultural section; the school of mines in the greatest mining district in the it: :e. We have no right to barter our votes " ea to the h ghest bidder. "I am opposed," continued Mr. Matts, "to lbar rinu, off the institutions of the state. I am ran y to dis, use se:rergatiuon tud consolidation, but I dJi not Lelreve rlch a proposition nR thait Iade by ther .:iinator from Cai:-ode would he heoard of ut hisj soa.son of thii legilative assetI.bly.

I opl; oe the amendment becaoe it throws out the red liga from the legislative ansembly and tire to tre hiheet biddler the edu. atioual rstitut erro (of the ntate." Senator Foleom also spoke on the Rmend ment, s inag: 'I did not ex actr take .ny u rt in toe discussion on consolulation or aegrecugation of the elate Institutuion. I have given the snbject careful consi ,eration .tad from ir.rt to last and all the tino I have been in favor of consolidation and ,otto..ed to anythring that look .d to segre gation. lut the amnendment of the senator ,rom Cas.arte puts the question In a new iphs,. Thib off r of hel and aid to taor trte lnlstitutions is legitim .te and not imer ceanary. 'I here is ti" disgrace in hanging out t i, li , Ill tIliA ilstiuoi,11 If yOll tpleause. u, l.os' Great Falls offers $100;0)0; some ,irt hl town may go tier one better, and maoe it $20~0.000. I am in favor of the amrend er nt." .enator Goddad opposed the amend ment, saying it was not his parl one to die cese a gr.gation or Consolldatiolt at this L tun, tut that he was op, tsed to the awmend ment becaust' it simply leaves the location f. toe nuive aity to the highest bidder. "1 d nt," he i outinllu d, "in any way ques tion the sincerity of the proposition milads iy thb. gentlemaus fronm Cuscade, but 1 am or rineed at the gentlemsn mnak ng such a roposition. I have a.ways understood he was in favor of consolodation. but he has lade a proposition looking to the sale of hin institution to the highest biduer." enateo Gibson cloued the debate on the :men mwent for his ci a of thei qu~stion, avying he did not see any objection to iliugina out the ted flag onu this pr,)posi ton. "When you say," he couonuded, "that tlissou a is the only pl:be in the state fri the university, 1 beg to dlffe with the gerntetrmtn. Grealt F I a is just as good a location; liozeman is ns good, and lHelena Sa grand townt for it. Inumany ways she i far ahead of other citties in the state and owtug to her c-untral location offers many idvnta t as. If Hilena should otter $2O, 00() tas an endowLnit.t for the lotntiol of ýise sate institutitos I would throw up my hio.s a nd sany gvie them to her." After a nuiotht short talk by Matte the Inendru nt was put to. a vote and the motion to inlefinitely pouspone was carriel. T'hen the I misoula senator moved that when the committee rise it report the bill tack with the recommenndation that it do pines. (Gilson egain led the forces in favor of coneol dation, saving th :t two years ago I" 'as i)eoposed to (the vel. gntiuol of the state educational institutions. Hinte he had givenu IualU car.ttul toun lit to tih sut jet t, all now he was more covihciid thtan ever of t at neceesity, botth fromt motives of utility and economy, of locatinig these l nstitutions at oltt p ace. 'The bill to locate these institutions itn this and that town are gott up itn the interest of thue towns and not in the interest of higher eduontion. We might as well speak oat. Parcel thetm out in the manner pIrot.oestd and we will have three Stal ve olin instltutions. To have a treunt university we mnet bnve the Inontey to rlti I lov the best talent. It will be years be tore our endowntallt will iamount to any thing like a decent sam. I believe we are shout to commit, I nmiu.lt sty, a uredt neime.

'There is one name sined to I that address, that of W. W. Wylie, which thi.t gentleman tille nru is there witlhout his authority or knowiedge. How mruny moro there rmry be I tido not know whose, anrmes have thus been itt ohed to thait ad dress. I am in favo of the motion of the senator lrou Mi iseulllr." Senator Mcllrrnott said he was surprise 1l tol hear the senator from Cascade eit, lnitte wae not a fit place for the school of mines. "If it is located the i," he said, "I bellirve it will soon be self.asustitring. l. ocate It a hundred miles from ther. and the miners and sons of mliners who would ittind it there, will, tartier thanl to ts such a udis tance within the state, attend somnae school outatide the limits of filontaun. I am in favor of segregation." Seinator Matte, oncluded the diaoussion, talking for ani hour and ten rumiutes. lie satid: "I concede that the lecnaito fro,m Ce. onde since ely believes in conorlidation,. Blut the ollucerar that htse .ijnr pltaced upon our uska oas ermitnatin. fraoz the str.at. t achet s iasa laotiatio, does not COuIIn friro tile source from which it is supiorsed to come. W. W.

Moin- I taus fas lost by her faillue to looIt tn thrse schools two yenas ago $.1,08() sbei would have received from the ven aral government." The senator then read an editorial from an Great Falls pa; or attirciine the ,ahaRn- pions of segregation, and on the conclusion of the reandng said: "We alre here to make a fair fight for the university and for seg'e gation. In this pamphlet the members of tihe State Teachers association have been guilty of trickery and chicanery. I have been trying for a week or more to get a letter they received from ex-President Bas coin of the Utiversity of W sconsin, but which tirhy would not publish in this I am phlet. President ]lascom was once my in atructor and I wrote him for hie opinion. Yesterday 1 eoeived his reply, and I take it that it contains the same views as tloes the suppressed letter. He is in favor of consolidation on certain lines and under ca tarn aircumatances." The senator then lead Mr. JBrecom's letter, and con cluded his address with an earnest plea for the location of the agricultural college at Boze-man or Miles City, the school of mines at Butte and the university at Mis souls. Chairman Hatch then put the motion to report the bill favorably. Ind it carried. and at 1:45 the committee rose and the senate adjourned. At the morning session Senator Power introduced a bill to require railroad cot porations, when they fence their right of way, or when they have already fenced it. to leave or make certain openings therein. The openings ire to be not less th n sixty feet in width and the company operating any rail oad is required to place cattle guards on either side of the o uhings. The provisions of the bill are ounly to refer to grazing counties. Violations of the law are to be couside:ed misdeme:noro, to be punibhed by a line of not less than $10 nor more thatn $.0. T'he sarme senator a.so in trodunod a bill authorizing cites and towns to incur indebtedness. The bill provides that any city or town, heretofore or herre after organized under a gneral or spaecia law may incur indebtedneas not excee ling in the aggregate th ee vntr C nt of the vauin of taxable property in the ioty or town, i.x cept where inlebterlnees Is to lbe incurred Ior the pu pose of conlstructing it sewerage system o rocuring a supply of water, thrni a debt no rxceedlug live per cent of the taxable value of roperty may be in cur ed.

Senatr.r Ci:b ou introduced a bill p ovid ing for the tr..ns or of the nmiscrlaneonu divareon of the ionrtana state library to the ibrary of the Historical society. 'The same senator also int: duced a bill making a-l,propriations for the sup ort and suainto snance of the library of the listo ical so rcty ftor 8I3l and 1894.
