Responding to the suggestions of pub lishers of the territory, the undersigned unité'ift- an invitation to the newspaper people of 'Montana to meet in Helena on TUesday, Feb. 10, 1885, for the pur pose orpmiaing a Territorial Press Assoqiittlop. It is. believed that the for inatifjq'of Such an association will meet witlrtho cOrdiul assent' and co-operation of publishers m till parts of Montana, and that press representatives generally will attest their interest in the proposed organization by their personal attend ance at the time and place named. Independent Publishers, Helena. .IÇrrald Publishers. Helena. Moxtanian Publishers, Helena. Helena, Jan. 12, 1885. Atjast the ball lms been set roll ing in the right direction, and if an organization is not formed that will ha <ijf untold benefit, not only to tbtf* newspaper publishers of the territory, but to the people and tax-payers as well, it will be the fauUujf the publishers^themselves. Nearly every state and territory in Union has- an editorial asso ciation,.a press association, or some aim M organization, the members .of .w^ibh moot^on'ce each year and ditrcçss topics of: interest to the busiqe^, V Ö tli er industries, have similar organizations for similar ob jects, and that they ase a benefit noiift oan deny. For instance, we have in Montana a printing law. that should be re pealed, and in its place such an act passed as will place the publishers of the territory on an equal footing to compete for the public partonage. A law is needed about which there could be no mistake; one on which it wöuld be impossible to place a double construction; and who are so well able to draft such a bill, as the best interests of the people and the publishers as a whole demand, as the publishers themselves would be,-if organized into a body with that particular business before them!/ We therefore suggest to the edi tors and publishers of the territory .that we all go to Helena on Feb. 10, form the organization so long needed, draft a bill that will as rtear as possible equalize the maxi mum price on the various kinds of work and provide for the awarding of contracts in an equitable and common sense manner, and have it presented to the legislature, together with a memorial urging its adop tion as a law. The leasing of Indian lands is at tracting considerable attention throughout the whole United States, and it is possible that the discus sion of the leases may lead to their being generally annulled by the present congress. The policy pursued by the Secretary of the In / terior, Teller; in regard to the leases of the Cherokee lands is being se verely criticised and we doubt not but the question of the lease of the Crow reservation to the Colorado land grabbers will be so fully dis cussed that Teller's reputation will "smell to heaven," and that this lease will be annulled with the oth ers. Whatever may be said of Wil liam H. Vanderbilt, in other rela tions, he certainly deserves much credit for the generous treatment of General Grant, the particulars of which are given in another column. Judging from the characterizations of Vanderbilt which are accepted as correct one could hardly antici pate the delicate and generous courtesy which has distinguished his offer to the nation's hero. J L It is now said that Gen. Ilazen will be court martialed in regard to the escape of Howgate. llazen's name has become synonymous With assinine arrogance and stu pidity; his downfall would there fore be looked upon with satisfac tion by the entire American people. I of Haz n is now endeavoring to resus c'ate the charges ^against Lieut. Garlington, so that the latter may be court martialed. Senators of both parties seem to be inclined to give Cleveland's ad ministration a fair show. It is gen erally understood that no new measures will be brought forward during the present congress to handicap the incoming administra tion. -Some Democrats however express the fear that the Republi can majority in the senate will not be satisfied with a "do nothing" policy. It is reported- that emissaries of the Mormon church have conclud ed a conditional treaty with the Yaqui Indians of Mexico, and that they are about to treat with the Mexican government for lands to form a future empire. Perhaps the Mormons think that under a Democratic administration there will be no show for them. "The rascals must go." Schuyler Colfax dropped dead in the depot at Mankoto. Minn., at 10:20 a. m., on Tuesday. Mr. Col fax was, during his lifetime, a prominent figure in American poli tics, though the brillancy^of his^ca reer was blighted by his connection with the credit inobelier bonds while he w r as vice-president under Grant. It is stated, on the authority of the postmaster general, that Presi dent Arthur will fill every vacancy possible up to 12 o'clock, p. m., on the 3rd day of March. With the fact well understood the true inward ness ot the civil service talk in dulged in by Republican papers de velopes itself. The appointment of J. S. Dick erson of St. Paul as Northwestern manager of the Associated Press seems to worry the Minneapolis papers. theefoth A Generous Act. The following letter was sent to Mrs. U. S. Grant by Mr. Win. II. Vanderbilt: 640 Fifth avenue, Jan. 10.1885.— Mrs. Uly sees S. Grant.—Dear Mad am: bo many misrepresentations have appeared in regard to the loan made by me to General Grant and reflecting unkindly upon him and myseP, that it seems proper briefly to recite the facts: On Saturday, the 4th of May last, -General Grant called at iny house and asked me to lend him $150,000 for the day. I gave him my check without question, not because the transaction was business-like, but simply because the request came from General Grant. The misfor tune which overwhelmed him in the next twenty-four hours aroused the sympathy of the whole country. You and he sent me within a few days time a deed of your joint property to cover this obligation and urged my acceptance, on the ground that this was only a debt of honor which the general had per sonally incurred, and these deeds 1 returned. During iny absence in Europe the general delivered to my attorney mortgages upon all his own real estate, household effects and the swords, medals, and works of art which were memorials of his victories, and presents from govern ments all over the world. These securities were, in his judgment, worth the $150,000. At his solicit ation the necessary steps were taken by judgment, etc., to reduce these properties to possession, and the articles mentioned have been this day bought by me, and the amounts bid applied in the reduction of the debt. Now, that I am at liberty to treat these things as my own, the disposition of the whole matter most in accord with my feelings is this: I present to you as your separate estate the debt and judgment I hold against General Grant, also the mortgages upon his real estate, and all household furniture and orna ments, coupled only with the con dition that the swords, commissions, medals, gifts from the United States, states, cities, and foreign govern ments, and all articles of historical yalue and interest shall, at the gen eral's death, or if yon desire it soon er, be presented to the government at Washington, where they will remain as perpetual memorials of his fame and of the history of his time. I inclose, herewith, assignments to you of the mortgages and judg ments, a bill of sale of personal property and deed of trust, in which the articles of historical in terest are enumerated. A copy of this trust deed will with your ap proval, be forwarded to the presi dent of the United States for deposit in the proper department. Trusting that this act will meet with your acceptance and approval, and with kindest regards to your husband, I am, yours respectfully, W. H. Vanderbilt. A wedding coat made by Andrew Johnson will be shown in the Tennesseo exhibit at the New Orleans exhibition. The coat was made in Johnson's little tail or shop in Greenville, Tenu., in 1838 or 1830, for Mr. II. T. Price of that town. The garment is made of the best navy blue cloth, cut in the old fashioned "claw-ham mer" style. The collar ana lapels are very broad, and there are live large buttonholes on each side. When the coat was made there were twelve large brass buttons, five on each side and two behind, besides the small ones on the cuffs of the sleeves. All the buttons are now missing except two on the right breast. With the exception of the loss of the buttons, the coat is in a g«od state of preservation.

He recommends funding the loreign- eWU of $585,000, and announces of m. be that the school fund amounts to $9,839.328. He suggests abolition of the discrimination against colored militia, and that the state giye financial aid for the organization of the militia. • In an interview with a newspaper correspondent at Washington Col. B'lttdi not of the Cherokee nation sai l: "I sin cerely believe and earnestly hope that this agitation about onr leases will put the teller policy in had odor. The majority of the Indians in the Cherokee nation are to day opposed to them, and if they could would annul them and unter into the cattle business for themselves. I am satisfied that the leases are illegal ami I do not see how these large cattle capitalists with their well-paid lawyers should think it safe to invest their money upon such risks. The leases will very probably be declared ille gal and void and our people, having learu de something by all this experience, will be the better for it." Senator VanWyckc submitted a report from the senate committee on pub lic lands, to accompany the bill also re potted by him relating to fencing public lands, in the report the committee says that without the least authority, and in open and oold defiance of the rights of the government, large and oftentimes foreign corporations deliberately enclose hundreds of thousands of acres, closing avenues of travel and preventing the occupancy of lands by those seeking homes. They al leged that the lands within their inclosures still remained open to settlement, yet no humble settler with scant means for the necessities of life would presume to enter any such enclosure to seek a home. The government has sufficient authority to drive those seeking homes from the Indian Ter ritory, and to burn the ranches of those invading the Yellowstone Park; while those appropriating vast acres are hoping the only remedy to be used agaiast them will be the law's delay in the courts. There fore, the committee has added a new sec tion to the house bill,- authorizing the president to summarily remove all obstruc tions, and if necessary use the military power of the United States.

The memorial states that the Crolî- Indians have selected and had surveyed a large and valuable por iion of their reservation lying east of the Big Horn river, which is more than ample for all present needs or future de mands; that since their removal from tlieir old reservation on Stillwater croek several attempts have been made, and are now being made, by stock raising syndicates and by fraud and misrepre sentations to induce the Indians to lease that portion of the reservation vacated by them west of the Big Horn river, on conditions that are not only unjust to the Indians, but an infraction of the policy of this government in the dispo sal of the public lands and in contraven tion of the principles of both our great political parties, ns declared in their re cent platforms. Wherefore the memor ial prays that the congress of the United States take such steps as may be neces sary to prevent the leasing or disposing of said lands to any public or private corporation or individual, and to restore the vacated portion of the reservation to the public domain.
