It Is possible that some of the^smaller towns might ba aid^ to fat^a Ion:; w ithout a city treasurer yo n^nicely, l.ut such Is not the case In^Butte. The payment of taxes is also^deferred until the last few days and It^would l^e out of the question for cue^officer to attempt to handle the busi^^ness, to say nothing of other and avi 11^more important conslderatlona. CityTreasurer fodi r fall a sense of^delicacy In discussing his own position,^ami all that he would say was thai the^city was entirely a separate govern^^ment from the county and ha believed^It needed I separate set of olllccrs all^the way through.

As to^the matter of free leal books: I have^never had personal experience with it.^hul the educational papers w hic h I^read all agree that where the system^has been tried it has proved a ileal savingto the taxpayers ami a benefit tothe schools ill ninny ways. It is im^^possible for us to secure a full attend^^ance at the opening of a term owing^to the inability of many to buy books.^They conic In later and seriously inter^^fere with Ihe si ho.,1 work. I believe^there are many who do not attend at^all because of the heavy expense of^text hooks and other achooi equip*^ments. Many slates have laws allow*^lnit cities and school dlsiriots to fur^^nish free books w ilea tile people so vote atan slectll a and malting special ap^pmpriat ions for thai purpose. Possibly^that would be the best plan III thi^state at pros,.nt.

Runof tile Talk in That Town About the^Ooveruor'n Mi'm.'ur,^Helena, Jan. I. Oeiaiajnf Smith's^message was the subject of wide dis^^cission to-ilny. Man) compliments are^paid it, although, naturally enough,^there are those who do not agree alts^him in all his recommendation. He-^porters for the Standard talked with^scores of .Montana's representative^men during the tiny. The leading tea- ittrttof the message iran freely uis- ussed. Following is a summary of^what was said lo tli reporters by IbSM^S hose \ iev s were sou nl : Tin:INSANE asym m. Dr.a. H. Mitchell, one of the pro^^prietors of the Insane asylum at Warm^Springs, said: ^Concerning the Insane^asylum, we are ready and always bays^bang to sell it to the s'ate at a very reasonablevaluation, tl long time, as nay be ilcs.rcd. ami nt a Vary lew rate^of Interest. If the s'\ ^ wishes to buy^there will be mi trouble about terms,^The grounds and buildings at Warm^Springs are In ever) *'^^ suitable. The^site is on th^ line of a railroad ami Its naturaladvantages, particularly the^matter of hoi water which Is used for licatini ,i portion of the buildings, ren^^der it equal if not superior to any^other si'e that COS Id be found in the^slate. The plant has b. en rendered^modem and thoroughly up to date, the^buildings are well planned and sub^^stantially constructed The equipment^is thorough, and really I c.m see as reason,if the state desires to own and^manage Ihe state asylum, why It^should not purchase ihe present insi! u.^lion instead of erecting an entirely new-^fine. To pari has.- w ould be cheaper la^the first place and it araejld be no In^^justice to cither myself or ihe public in thesecond.'' lr. 1'. y Warren, physicist of tht^asylum and a member of the present^house of represent at n o.:, said: ^The^governor males ,111 intimation that pa^^tients an kept at the asylum after tle y^have been cured. This is entirely er^^roneous and is a r^ tied ion that is nut^warrant. .1 The statistics of insane^asylums show thai tin Montana Insti^^tution compares favorably with the^Very best In ihe world. From SO to 40^per cent of the whole number of pa^^tients admitted an- discharged reoov^^ered and '^ per cent, of deaths mmi illy.^As for the est of maintenance It win^readily be seen that the cost must be^greater than In a penitentiary; many^more attendants an required ami many^of them must I... of .1 Right r grade. An^^other expensive Item Is drugs. Tag^can understand how the cost of taking^care of Insane persons counts up so^much hlgh'-r ihe 1 the cost of !,, pit thesame number of prisoners, atarly^all of whom ate strong and healthy. Tin:stati-: CAPITOL^itopreaoutatlve Langhorne of Helena^said: ^I am very much pleased with^the governor's suggest lour as to the^capltol and can give them my hcany^endorsement. Tin- state at present is^In no financial condition to execute the^big scheme which was 1! : whichIs the subject of the governors^criticisms. We should lie governed by^strict business principles in the con-^structlon of the capltol. Just the same^as would any merchant^it should he^made a business propostlloa anil the^governor has struck the right note.^The Idea of a building so constructed^that with the addition of wings as may^be demanded In time to accommodate^n growing legislature and exenitive^departments is, I think, original with^the governor. Kv.n if tin- plan of the^commission were earn. ,) out, the tl^would be unable to till the building in sideof a generation, and I am not^sure but that I300.UWU would !^^^ large^enough to build a suitable capltol^which would Is- large and convenient^enough for many ytars. The original^plans were on a grand stale and tin-^eiettmn of a legislative palace Such^aa was contemplated would Ik- all right^If the state could afford such a luxury^and, while such a course might help^Helena in the Is-giiining. yet Ihe city^would suffer with the rest of the state^by having a big debt fastened upon it^As 1 said before it Is a simple business^1 i mposition and 1 heartily endorse the^I governor's suggestion. Dr.^.'. K. Oats, a member of the state^capltol building commission, spoke of^the governor's message as a whole in^terms of the highest praise, but de^^clined to discuss that portion of it re^^lating to thi' slate capltol remarking^that any expression from him at this^time would not Is. In gotsl taste.^I State Senator W. K. Kloweiee, aii-^| other member of the commission, ^h--^1 cllned to discuss the matter for similar^reasons, but 1 marked that Montana^was a great state rli h In resources and^1 certain to contain a larger and more^prosperous population. Montana's^capltol should be ^ handsome and sult-^| able structure. Surveyortietieral John s. M. N'eal^^a- pleased to have all opportunity to^express Ills he,iny indorsement of tiov-^ertior Smith's recommendation relative^I to the nipltol. ^At the present time. .saidthe general, ^it would be utterly^I impossible to sell the land grant for a^million dollars, or even half that sum.^| All would like In see a beautiful build-^nig erected lor the capltol which would^he a Vhlc, not only to the city, but^also fur the slate, but the gov -i-nor has^given excellent reasons for going slow^at present. We an- In 110 condition to tuxour people for the purpose of erect^^ing such a building as was ronlem-^plated by the plans of th^ commission.^The t:',on.oiiii named by the governor Is^enough lor the slate to expend at this^lime for such a purpose. \\'e want a^building and want it put up honestly^for the good, not only of Helena, but alsoof the whole state. QtnaralNeal said he was particu^^larly pleased with that part of the gov^^ernor's message which referred to Mon^^tana's Magnificent land grant and con^^sidered all his suggestions in that re^sped sound. ^It was a splendid mes-^sage throughout and If It Is received^and acted on In the spirit in which it is^sent it w ill redound to the credit of the administration,the legislature ami lbs slate.It is time for retrenchment to^get rid of useless and expensive otll-^cers and to make the state officers do^Utsir own work without depending up^^on deputies. ChairmanC. O. Heed of the populist^state central COtBMtttSt expressed tlnt-^st If In favor of the governor's proposi^^tions regarding the capltol. hut with^certain conditions. There should Is-.^^said Mr. steed, ^such action as wotil 1^mil result In tying up the entire land^grant by bonding it for the sum men^^tioned by the governor, tWMN. With^certain conditions such as will properly^protect the slate's great interests. I amin favor of the proposition. 1 tut Iam not in favor of becoming Involved^in obligations which work a burden up^^on the people and places in Jeopardy^the grant which the government has^given the state for this I pacific pur- piise. Kx-GovernorJoseph K. Toole em^^phatically expressed his umiualilicd^approval of the governor's capltol sug^g si inns. In his opinion |ttn,MI Is am^^ple for all the purposes contemplated^ami in all probability even tJIsMM^w ould be enough. CHOOtBOOKS,^l:. A. t'arleton. stale superintendent^of public Instruction, could not be foundto-day, but it is well known that heIs strongly In sympathy with the^propnsition of free school books and the governor'srecommendations in thai re^^gard no doubt meet wllh his hearty^approval. The plan has many sup^^porters In the legislature. MILITARYAFFAIRS.^Colonel a. I.. Babeock, aid-de-camp^on ex-Qotremor Richards staff and^state senator from Yellowstone county,^snld In relation to the governor's^reeoiiimemhilions as to the slate mi^^litia: ^1 am very glad to observe that^the governor does not favor abolishing^Ihe National liuard. I regard it as^one of the wisest of our stale Institu^^tions. It should certainly he main^^tained. The expenses lii conned ion^with it have been high ami should be reduced wherever possible, itut i wouldnot abolish the annual slate SU-^eajnxunent. That Is really necessary^to preserve Interest In the guard and^render it SsTsctlVS at times w hen it may^be locled. All the equipment for the encampmenthas now been purchased^and Its cost should and will lie lower.^It should be conducted on principles o|^economy. Possibly it may be well to^reduce the per diem. Iii relation to^the governor's remarks that ^we can^^not Indulge the vanity of gold braid or^military pomp^ It should be said that^the state Is never called upon to pay^one lent ot thi cost of th - uniforms^ot the governor's stall'. The members^of the staft ui^ lys foot this Hem of ex-^pens ^ personally. The uniforms worn^by us are strictly in accordance with^tie 1 euiilai ions of the 1^. s. A. for off.^mis of similar rank. No more gold^braid is used than the provisions 1*0-^qulro. 1 am very strongly in favor of^maintaining the National Quard ut a minimum cost COnaiatSUt with^1 iciicy. Tin:stati: PRIfiON.^'iii.-iias McTagtM or Con ley Taguestate prison contiactors,^Inexpressibly pleased with the gover^^nor:: commendations of the prison Nopains had been spared by the eon-^ttai tors, and .Mr. McTagui was , ^, . |^ii gly grati; ^ d 10 discovei thai then- ,u-^forts were appreciated by his excel-^| leney. tieni rally among the members^1 of the legislature the governor's rs^^[ marks on the prison are cordially in-^I dors-oil. Although there has been some^talk of abolishing the eonttatt system,^in view- of the governor's position, any^sin a movement will probably now be^dropped. THKBOITNTT 1. uv.^state Senator Chandler of Fergus^County, who takes esp. . ial int-rest m^^lie sto, k ami sheep industry of the^state, sal.I: ^1 do not agree with the^governor's position regarding the boun^^ty law. I think he has b. en nustn-^foi nicd in some respects. He says: ^It^is my observation that coyotes do little -or no damage to the stock Interests on^ace.nil.t of their cowardly instincts INow every sheep and tattle man knows^thnt coyotes do kill both sheep and^calves and are a serious menace. If^von take the bounty off coyotes and^leave It on gray wolves the ivsult will jbe that bath kind of animals will in-^SSS and multiply with great rapid^^ity, for It will not pay trappers 10 ;,, Iafter wolves exclusively Wolves ate^ran hard to catch in traps. They kill^tli.ir tsrg pny Hinl will not eat dead^meat. Then too they are largely con-^l'ttii d t-i remote and inaccessible re^^gions As to ihe amount of claims un^^der the bounty law. the public is liable^to form an entirely i ITOSSBSSS impres^^sion from the governor's remarks.^While the amount, it Is true. Is largo, 1:^tloes not come out of the general fund.^Klve per cent of the county license goes^to the txiunty fund, but all the rest of theburden falls en the stoi ggaag them^^selves, and they are willing to bear it.^In fact many of them would be willing^to bear the entire expense If It were^equitably adjusted. The repeal of the bountylaw while It would not ruin the^stock Industry, would seriously cripple^it. I know from my own observation In^9 rgus county that the law has largely^reduced the number of stock destroy^^ing animals. AWORD FOR THK BI7RRAU.^James II. Mills, commissi uier of Ihe^bureau of agriculture, lals.r and Indus-^liy. il 1 lined to be Interviewed relative^to the governor's suggestions concern^^ing that department. He would neither^endorse or criticise, saying that his^views on the matter hart been given a^month ago and at the present moment^he felt 11 delicacy In further expressing^an opinion on the subject. In the arti^^cle referred to Commissioner Mills,^after showing In what way the depart^^ment was of value, said: ^It Is of cur^^rent report that some who, perhaps,^have not thoroughly considered the^matter, suggest, among other things,^that this bureau should be saerlllced to thenewly rusts spirit of retrenchment Iftllre necessity so demands there is^no recourse. Hut perhaps It is well to^think this mutter over. When a similar^proposition was made In Ihe leglsla-^I Hire two years ago. lest my motives^I should Is- misconstrued, I did not enter^one word of protest; but now. Is ing re^^tired by the exigencies of politics and^I having no possible personal Interest In^the matter, I ask permission to say^I that I le-lleve the work assigned to the^j bureau Is of great benetlt to the state^! ami that with a properly amended law^I to work under and adequate means to^work with, il will amply repay the ex-^; pendlturc. FHOM THI WEST END.^j fiXm They Talk fibswt the Message Over tnxanuhltiny.^Missoula, Jan. 6.^lleporlers for the^Standard talked with many of the citi^^zens of Mi:^ulu to-day, getting their^mews SB lbs recommendations in the^inaugural message of liovernor Smith.^The message was generally praised. !The capltol building teamed la he a lopieof Import ante with many of^1 hose v ho WON interview ed. Here are^tOtXa 1 I Um opinions that were ex^^pressed: MayorJ. M. Keith-1 do not think^that the state Is ready for the building fa capltol it rannni afford it and thebonding of the state laud grant^could Hot be successfully uclolnpllsh-^d at present. When the time comes^thai ths state needs a capltol building,^In- matter can be more satisfactorily^managed, both on account of the pres^^ent Haan^ lal condition of ths country andthe fai t that the lands will then^be nun h mart valuable. The tUggSS^Ion of the governor that f.'ioti.uoo is^^ nough for a capltol seems to me to lie^.1 good on.-, l-'or that sum, the state^Mid have a building thnt would be amplefor its needs and ornamental noughto be a credit lo the state. I am^not familiar enough with the text book^question to give an intelligent opinion.^As to tin- employment of convict labor,^1 1I0 not think that il is ever an advan^^tage. It is not economical and is not^I^ the credit of th,. slate. ta ble- was W.M. I!lckford-^My opinion In re^^gard to the capltol building Is that if^anything is done at nil. it should he^on the basis of a million-dollar build^^ing. It will he as dllllcu11 to tloat Isinds f1 us of half n. million or a milliondollars. Allihut the slate capl^^tol commission has doiv thus far has beanmi thfci bsxds and nil of our acts havebe, n guld. tl by the act of lbs leg^^islature that named the cost of the cap^^ltol building as Jl.i.111111. The plan lhat hagbeen accepted has been made ^n^his basis and all of Ihe specifications thaihave In made are on this same line.There might be wisdom In wait^^ing for some time and postponing the^building ^^f the capltol till times are^better, tin the other hand. It might be^urged lhat we nag build a belter build^^ing at present than we could later for^Ihe same amount of money. This is 111^some respects a peculiar situation. The^money for this building is to come^from the land donated by the general^government for this purpose ami will^not sagas out of lbs pockPli of the p.-n-^1 do of the state. I consider the lands^of the state sufficient for the construc^^tion of this building, it Is only apply^^ing the fund lhat In s been donated. If^this w.-re not so and the payment for^Ihe cnpitol were to be made out of the^POCketa of the people of the state, I^should share the opinion expressed by^tin- governor. While the amount al^^ready expended by the capltol commis^^sion is not I 11 go. it Is large enough to^be taken Into consideration. Tin- ex^^pense of telecttng grounds, the ex-^1 1 uses of Ihe commission, the mainten^^ance of nftVat. the payment of prizes forthe plan competition, the excava^^tion already done all these amount la^j *.:^^.one or mors, and this sum is so^i large thai It ought to ba taken Into ac^^count. With a bond Issue, there is a^certain time for lbs payment at the^principal and for the payment of inter-^est. Tin re will also be a saving of 2^1 per cent, in ihe interest paid on the !warranti Istmed. At present the !amount paid for the rental of otllces for^! the state officials and for quarters for^' the legislature is as great as would be^paid for interest on the bonds. As to^lbs t^ xt book qin st ion. I think It should^I be left to the state board of educa-^I Hon and the action of this board should^i be tinnl. i:.I Hinhay^'H tht state lands^at^ to be bonded. It should tie for a^million dollars. If they are Winded^now they CSX Sever be bond' tl again^land to bond '.In-n, (of anything lest thana million would be throwing away apriceless gift. When the bonding is^! done, it should be for 11 sum commen^^surate with the value of th-^ lands. F.^'^^ HIgglns^^I think that for the^! pr. setit the state tloes not need a capl^^tol building and can fel along without Ione. if anything is d^ ns at nil, it ought ilo be along ihe lines laid down by the^I governor. The state has ample quar^^ters now ami lbs amount paid for ren-^j tal Is less than would lie paid for In-^I terest on bonds. The Idea of a million-^dollar capita! building is outrageous.^Than is not only the payment of inter-^1 est to be taken inio consideration, hut^the cost of keeping up such a building,^' as well. This wotitd be great and w ould^^ xi ceil the present rental of quarters^I that are perfectly satisfactory. Ills^j absurd to talk about a million-iloPar^building at the present time, and when Iwa do need a building, one that win !cost Ihe stale t'.T.n.i^K^ will be good^enough. J.H. T.
