THE UNIVERSITY BILL,
Consolidation and Segregation Had
Their First Innings in the
Fight on the Question of the Lo

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

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,:

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

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

omission of that fact from the ouiloinl pro

other bill that has beers causing consider.

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

Senator Foleom also spoke on the Rmend

or aegrecugation of the elate Institutuion. I
have given the snbject careful consi ,eration

.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

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

idvnta t as. If Hilena should otter $2O,

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

for the senate to take that view of the sub

of the reandng said: "We alre here to make
