THE COURT DECIDES.
In the matter of the llomestake tun
mel precinct. Judge I.)eolfe was con
palld to write his decision in a hurry.
It ould not have presented the situa
ton in more lucid form if a week had
been spent in its preparation. 0(f
sourse. the lawyers who represent a
seaspiracy to steal the state were ready
to throw new obstacles in the way of
th eourt, but this policy of obatruction
had been anticipated and surprises none
to us. In this county, erime. wrapping
itw-f In the convenient robe of techni
elty. is sometimes allowed to get a
p.tty log start of its pursuers and. In
tbe pending cae, while the people crave
m orderly count, to the end that state
bood may be realied, the only course is
to wait in patience until fraud has ex
eated its last frivolous pretext.
The decision rendered yesterday
moralng by Judge l)eWolfe is a corn
pact summary of the disputed cae
whieh every intelligent layman can un
deurtand a he reads it. The court
Brat studies the question whether the
functions of the canvassing board are
ministerial only or partly ministerial
or partly Judicial. In deciding that
point Judge I)eWolfe was able to corm
mand abundant precedent in the way
of unquestioned authority, and in fix
Mug the functions of the board as pure
ly ministerial he placed every element
of the controversy in clearest light.
Judge Knowles has been a persistent
advocate of the returning board that
has sought to throw the tunnel precinct
out. The very atmosphere about hilu
must have been redolent with the re
Section of his blushes, whel, yesterday
morning, the court quoted the
decision once rendered by Judge
Knowles himself, fully sustaining
overy sentence in the opinion handed
down by Judge IbeWolfe.
Having esaertained the true function
of the eavasslag board. Judge De
Wa properly concludes that the duty
t the board is simply to make ab
stracts of the votes as shown by the re
taLrs and that the board has no power
to pas o the alleged informalities
melted by the defendant. "These may
he important questions and the law
pervides a tribunal where they may be
raised and decided, but they are not ftot
the determinatio of a canvassing
bsord;" so the decision reads. There
apes, Judge De Wolfe scatters the
Frag nt left from the case made in

AS TO THE COURT.
The Butte Inter Moeistarn is unduly
anxious to get into a controversy over
Judge leW'olte's ttnme to bear the
tunnel precinet case. This newspaper
has not felt called upon to speak in
praise or blame of the court. Demo
crate in Silver IBow county didn't want
to go into court in the first place, but
they were dragged before the bench
against their wilL They propose now
to abide the event and they are not
"discussing" any of the judges.
Two days ago we remember to have
read in the Iater osustaln that "the
only thing for the democratic press to
do now is to abuse Judge IkeWolfe."
That was when the organ of the con
solracy thought itself a winner. We
do not notiee that democracy has been
pouring any vials of wrath on the
court's head. We are still elinging to
the sentiment held at 1:45 o'clock Tuer
day afternoon, October 29. in the offce
of the Inter M,,untaiN, when it re
marked: "Up to the present writing the
Inter MoaUntain caIn consclentiously
endorse all the pleasant things that the
democratic press has said about Judge
IeWolfe." That was the hour when
the conspiracy expected to get away
with the court on technicalities. In
fact, last Tuesday wall be recorded as
"l)eWolfe day" in the Inter MonataLin
(irave results depend on the decision
to be rendered this morning, but the
WrTArnDAnD doesn't undertake to render
any assistance to the court in reaching
a doeision. In fact, we assume that
Judge IIeWolfe understands his busi
ness and that the courts of Montana
esn run right on without asking the
legal aeumen pent up in newspaper
oal.ees to help them out.

IN THk MILLIONS.
If the estimates which Thomas O.
'hearman is about to turnish to the
Pbrwme are good for anything, there
are a few very rich men in this coun
try. Taking the valuations lately re
ported by the territorial governors and
assuming that Mr. Khearman's figures
are accurate, it appears that John J.
Astor could own the territory of
Wyoming and have forty millions left
for running expenses.
The Trinity church corporation in
New York tity would need to borrow
only about UY0,UU0,00U to buy the whole
of Montana, on the basis of (overnor
White's figures. which do not include
the mining property exempt from tax
ation. Of course, that property cuts
considerable figure in Montana's
wealth; but Trinity Church, two of the
Vanderbilts, J. i). Iockafeller, and
Mrs. ietty Ureen could chip in enough
to buy the territory, railroads, mines
and all, and have quite a little fund for
prospecting work to boot. W. K. Van
derbilt and the Packer estate could own
Idaho, Mormons and all, and still have
snug millions left to put away for a
Any number of comparisons could be
made it we assume that Mr. tthearman's
guesses are good. Probably he is far
out of the way on some of the people
in his list. Not so very long ago there
was talk of sixteen men in the city of
Helena. each with a million in his in
side pocket, igures that are as far out of
the way as are the current estimates
showing that one man in seventeen in
the city of Chicago is practically a pan
Itegardiug poverty it is quite Impos
sible to secure correct data for the
United States. In England, however,
the operation of the poor law makes it
possible to secure sulticiently accurate
figures and it appears from the official
reports that one man out of every
twenty you meet on the streets of Lou
de- is a pauper.
THE COMING QUESTION.
It is the opinion of the Chicago Ttmre
that the silver convention soon to be
held in St. Louis has for its promoters
a "little company of silver and political
speculators in the office of the Granite
Mountain Mining company at St.
Louis. With this declaration for a
starter, the (hicago Times runs hastily
over a string of figures that prove
nothing and then blithely concludes
that, as the government is coining ail
ver molS, thUere Is a demand fl tLe
oetwithstanding the nippeat style
In which the Trmew seeks to dispose of
the business we fancy that the conven
Uon will meet and that its Intelliggnt
members will formulate the view
on silver coinage whieh have been falth
fully discussed these many yeas in
the West and which are now finding
advocates throughout the Fast. We
predict, too, that the utterances of the
delegates will command a hearing with
men at Washington who help to shape
national legislation. Teere was a time
when eastern editorial pages could cry
down the voice of the western press
and people. but that time is no more.
This serious view of the situation is
taken by the New York Tribnia which,
while it in utterly hostile to the convic
tions tn silver held in the West, per
ceives the strength of the movement
and warns the Kast against what It
assumes to be a trans-Missourian her
ey. When the dimuiussion regarling
silver in again fairly opened.
we may .yxpect goldite organs
like the Tribune -to start out
with the old saws that the country
already has more money in circulation
than it needs, that the "constitution
does not contemplate a double stand
ard." that the liberal ceinage or in
creased purchase of silver would do
harm - and all that.
Hlaving Intelligent grasp on lthis sub
ject, the West will b* able to meet the
exploded fallacies to which the eastern
prems must again resort when the dis
cussion begins: and the indications are
that the convention to be held in -t.
Louis will serve' an excellent purpose
in helping to bring the issue fairly be
fore the country.
