TUESDAY, AUGUST 24, 1880. Aedlalde Neilson, the celebrated actress, died suddenly at tlio Centennial hotel. Lon don, England, on the fifteenth of this month. The brief dispatch announcing the event does not stat«j the cause of her sudden de mise; but it is known by her friends in America that M'ss Nei'.son had for several years suffered occasional attacks of heart disease, and it is supposed that the gradually Increasing violence of the malady lias at length proved fatal. New Vork corset makers are telling tales out of school and revealing secrets of the trade which some of their patrons would vastly prefer not to have divulged. They say theilN customers are not by any means con fined to the fair sex, and that it is an every day matter for portly gentlemen ol a certain age, and anxious to retain their old-tiiue gracefulness of figure, to call ami have their measure taken for corsets of the most expen sive and approved pattern. The 50ns ot (Jakes Ames are out 111 a long communication in which they strive to estab lish for their father the character of a pure and self-sacrificing statesman whose manipu lation of the Credit Mobilier stock w as en tirely disinterested and conducted solely with a view of the benefit it would intimately con fer upon tiie publie in securing the great transcontinental Pacific railroad. Speaking of iiis method of placing the stock they naively remark: 1< DT course every effort w as made to place the stock in the hands of men of established position. The motive was plainly stated by Mr. Ames; 'X have observed,' lie says, 'that men will not take the trouble to acquaint themselves thoroughly with affairs in which they have no personal interest.'" Mr. Ames, of course, was too charmingly innocent to imagine that the vote of congress men on legislation touching the Pacific road would be at all influenced by the fact of their leaving funds invested in its stock, it isapity that the moral sense of the American people is so sadly perverted that they saw- in the Credit Mobilier business an exhibition of corrup tion sufficient to draw their condemnation upon Collax, Brooks and Garfield, although those who formerly w ere most severe in their censures of the latter are now trying with might and main to whitewash him into pos session of a good character once more. a n:n ( ommibi ms. The plea of the Iiutepcndait is that its * 1 candidate must be Selected because of his (1 great and varied experience, which renders him an infinitely more efficient du legale than J any new man we might select. Now we chanced to be in Montana during Maginnis first term in Congress am. it so happens that we have an inconveniently distinct recnllec lion of the fact that at the end of that tern. a renomination was claimed for Maginnis as l a recompense for mhmblc »entre* „trendy rendered Montana during Am first term, and not at all because bis congressional career had thus far merely given a promise of future ^ efficiency. Now if it is true, as the Maginnists maintain, that a new man is practically use less during his first term, bow is it that their man old so well when inexperienced? Or why'cannot another inexperienced ...an do as well as Maginnis did during ids first two years in Congress? Again, it is an unquestionable fact that when ^Uginnis entered Congress he attracted far more attention, and was mentioned by Ihe press of the Capital tar more frequently ll.au »of late year», or since he lias become one of the regular old « stand by's" of the House. It then, this is the effect of growing old 4h harness; 'or rotier . f dropping into a little rut of routing, shall we gain or lose by sending to Congress a new, fresh man; one who would be altogether free from the eimii ties which, unless Maginnis is a putty ...an be must surely Lave occasioned ; one who could a succeed fully as well as Maginnis in enlisting a 11,e friends of Montana in any measure cal- I 0 eulated to promote the welfare of the terri- j tor ^ Still further ; does the Independent eoasider j it advisable to saddle the party with the fifth j term of a candidate wl.o in the campaign ! preceding his third term gave a pledge to the effect that if renominated on that occasion lie would under no circumstances be a candidate | for renom ination two years thereafter? "experience** was of such inestimable value ip i ' Î , why didn't Maginnis stand on his rights and tell the people of Montana that a proper re gard for their own interests should impel them to send him to Congress again? Why did he give a pledge amounting to what is ; generally known as his » word of honor"- j sometiiiug, by the way. usually considered j binding among honorable men-why did he j give this pledge unless he intended to stand by it? The opposition to Maginnis during j the campaign for ins third term was quieted | by that pledge, but does the Independent im- ! that j agine lhat the same opposition, tindin faith was not kept with them, will rally again J to tlie support of the machine candidate? It | wasallvery weiltoignrrethispledgetwoyears I ago, when there was no regular opposition | and when the party nominee had virtually a walk over. But will it do, having legat'd for no other consideration tlian the party welfare, ; lo bring out a candidate in direct opposition I to his own pledge, to face a strong nomination 1 by tlie republicans? Now is tlie tune to con-j sider such matters. The conventions are soon to assemble and after they once issue ! tlieir instructions the matter will be settled. If tlie Independent maintains lhat no such pledge as that alluded to above was ever given, then all we have to say about it is that Major Maginnis w il have a first rate chance to institute criminal proceedings against cer tain parlies, for us soon as his name is pro posed in the Deer Lodge convention that 'pledge, which wasn't a pledge after all, will he brought forward and attested. THE SET TIMBER MMTKCCTIOSiN. From the instructions lately issued to Reg isterx and Heccivcrs, and printed in another column, it appears that our timber difficulties of a couple of years ago are to he revived. For some time past our industries have been conducted unvoxed by this annoyance : un disturbed by the threat of a tax liable at any time to he imposed. Indeed, one of the lar gest plumes in the hat of our Fifth Term Knight was the "highly important service he had rendered Montana, in common with the other mining states and territories of the west, in having the timber law us originally adopted so modified that settlers and bowl Jtdc residents of those mining districts could cut and remove from the public lands of the United States such timber as they might re quire for tlieir own use. It seems, though, that this "important service." like certain promises that might he mentioned, was not of a character "to keep," and consequently Mr. Schur/., in his regular spasm of civil service reform, looking about for the «opportunity of making for his foundering party a fill le of the political capital it so sorely needs, picks upon tiie helpless territories as ihe safest dis tricts to deal with. Having no voice in the choice of President of course they ure unable to resent the injustice perpetrated, and accord ingly a little political buneome is to he man ufactured at their expense. And that those instructions were issued solely w ith a view of winning a little bogus credit for a fictitious zeal in the public service, is evident from the most sui>erfioial examinât ion of their provi sions. The states and territories coming w ithin tlieir scope yield no walnut, ash. box wood. hickory, or any other kind of wood valuable in the arts, and lienee made an arti cle of merchandise and export. Tiie timber growing on tiie mineral lauds of those states and territories is only lit for fuel and for the manufacture of lumber; and even for those purposes it is of an inferior quality. Hut such as it is, it is the liest to be had. and ac cordingly we have recourse to our hillsides for timber to furnish fuel for our reduction works or our firesides; ortlio logs for out saw mills. But.not so much as one stick of cordw ood is cut. or one piece of lumber sawn in any of the milling states or territories for export. Timber is cut to supply our domes tic market only: to supply the needs of the civilization we are striving to build up here in the w ilderness; and since this is so let us examine . those model instructions and see whether or not they are calculated to protect the rights of tiie government ill its timber lands, supposing that to be the intention in view . L11 the mining districts, timber, as we have shown, is eut altogether for domestic ,■ , , ' consumption.

New Haven, Aug. IS.—Senator Eaton j ; was made permanent cliairmau of the'Deino- | I era tic State Convention. He characterized 1 the electoral commission as the greatest poiit ical crime of modern times, aud appealed io the convention to rebuke it. The expression ! was furiously applauded. He congratulated j liiuiselt that tliere was but one feeling in ret- l erei.ee to it. As he lived, lie believed that : Connecticut would give Hancock aud English 50,000 majority. J. E. English, of New Haven, was noun noted for Governor, and telegraphed Iiis ac ceptance. Clias. M. Pond, of Hartford, was nominated for Lieut. Governor ; 8. S. Blake, Secretary of State; Merrick A. Merry,Treas urer , and Chas. R. Fagan, Comptroller. A UTTLE CHAT WITH THE "ORUANB." We perceive that 9ince iiis arrival Major Maginnis has "»fixed " two newspapers, Uie Independent and lieront, which are now» figuring in the highly dignified role of Per sonal Organ. Well, so be it. We have no objections to offer but, remembering the Inde pendent's request of a few days ago, when it asked us to define tho "machine" to which the Miner lias so frequently alluded we may as well comply with that demand by pointing out some work of the machine. Before doing 3-, however, we have a little request of our own, n request which we hope tiie Organs w ill have the kindness to grant without de lay. In its last issue tiie Choteau Organ says: "Tiie democratic aspirants have become so numerous, and so selfishly eager for political honors that rather than nominate tiie only man that conl-t lie elected they arc willing to sacrifice paity interests and i,ive tiie position to their opponents." Now, will the Organ have the kindness to mention by name, a few of the democratic aspirants alluded to in the above extract ? Will it have tho kindness to put us on the track of even one prominent democrat who will announce himself a candi date lor the delegateship ? By so doing it will confer upon the anti-machine wing of the parly a favor for which we shall ever hold tiie Organ in grateful reinemberence. Tiie trouble with (lie anti-fifth termeis is precisely tliis. We can find scores and hundreds ol democrats who will not vote for a fifth term under any consideration. No matter how great may have been tiie past services, the honor conferred in four consecutive terms of the only important office in the gift of the people of Mantana is considered a fair recom pense for such services, whatever tiie same may he, and they wilt not support a fifth term. But, while we have no difficulty in finding plenty of democrats who ate not at ail back ward in uttering such sentiments in the most emphatic maimer, we cannot for Hie life of us find so much as one prominent democrat who will consent to lead tiie opposition by an nouncing himself a candidate for congress? Some positively decline it in advance, declar ing lhat their business interests will not per mit of tlieir entrance into public life, at least not for some time to cotne, while for the rest the very most they will consent to is that they will accept, a nomination provided the democrats of Montana choose to offer it of teeir own free will. In fact our one great want is tiie want of a leader, so tiie Organ will conter upon us a very great favor indeed if it will but mention a few ot its "democratic aspirants, selfishly eager for political honors." As for the request put forward by the other Organ we reply to it as follows ; The ma chine is a very complicated piece of mechan ism, provided with various ramifications, and he is blind indeed who is so utterly blind as to be unable to detect the evidence of its ope rations. To cite an example we shall not go very far away, but, instead, will begin at home. Adjoining Bulle is tiie town of Walkerville, believed to be a Maginnis camp. On tins subject we have no issue to make with the democrats of Walkerville. If they choose to support Major Maginnis for a (iftli or for a fiftieth term it is tlieir unquestionable privilege to do so, and not only that but it is their right to demand and they are entitled to receive a fair representation in convention according to their numbers. But Butte is un questionably anti-Magin.iis, and the demo crats of Butte, also, are entitled to representa tion in proportion to their numbers. But are they allowed such a representation ? When the central committee met it was controlled by a lot of little Maginnises, creatures of the ma chine who allowed to Lite Maginnis pre» cincl of Walkerville a delegation amounting to one delegate to every fourteen votes cast there for tiie democratic nominee for delegate at the last election, but to the anti-Maginnis precinct of Butte they allowed a delegation in the proportion of one delegate to every twen ty-four and a fraction of such votes cast ; and this, be it remembered, while Butte lias 1111 questionably grown much more rapidly than Walkervill du ing the past two years. Here's Olli 1 n achi ne, Mr. Organ. IIow do you lik e tlie looks of tlie out-fit and what have you lo say in i's deff nee ? 'e won d also call at tentjoi to the act that tlie " little Magin nises " afoi esaid we e not r igularly clected iiieinbe rs « t* tbe committee.

If the Organ* aud the , . . ... , . ... .. machine, without instituting any examina' tion into the state of feeling in this county, choose to force tlieir candidate on the people they will do so iu opposition to the expressed wish of the strongest democratic county in tne Territory. LIFE III TH E CAB PA ION. We presume that the gentlemen now oll'er ing themselves as democratic candidates for the different offices of the several counties of Montana would like to s ■ a lively campaign; one that would call out. the old party fire and party enthusiasm, und roll up a magnificent democrat ic majority. Such a wish iseuiiiiont ly proper and natural, but we would begtliose entertaining it to consider the effect tiie nom ination for Delegate to congress will inevita bly have upon the campaign throughout Hie length and breadth of the territory. If Major Maginnis be renominated Hie campaign on the democratic side will be dull, lifeless and insipid, and whatever will be done for Hie party must be done by the local candidates or tlieir friends. Without disparaging the real ly efficient services rendered Montana by Major Maginnis during tiie past, we cannot look for anything else than a slow campaign if lie be renomi nated. Human nature is not so noble as it might be, we admit, but we must, take it as it Is, and as at present constituted it must, lie admitted that "gratitude " is a cold, dismally cold sentiment upon which to at tempt to cultivate anything resembling en thusiasm. More especially is this the case when it is believed that a fair recompense lias already been received for the services for which gratitude is supposed to he due. If Major Maginnis lie reiioininated, tiie cam paign for Iiis liftli ti : 11 will be an old, old story, stale as a thrice told tale, and tiie indi vidual must indeed !>■ tiiglily charged who could become enthusiastic over it. Two years ago, and we much regret to be com pelled to write those words., Major Maginnis was left to make the campaign alone, with out tiie compliment of a corps of orators to to accompany him on Iiis tour, or divide with him the labor of making a tour through tiie territory. This year, if lie be renominated, matters will be still worse, and nothing else can be expected for tiie more frequently a candidate appears before tiie same constituency tiie more comonpiace does iiis candidacy become. On tiie other if the Hon. G. \V. Stapleton, or any other new man be nominated liiere will be a spon taneous outburst of tlie old party file. Prominent democrats, well-known orators will take the field in troops and " make Koine howl" with a regular old-timer of a cam paign; one invested with the life, the inter est and enthusiasm which cannot possibly be assumed at will, or counterfeited! Such a campaign would revive all tiie old democratic strength of Montana; and, reanimated by its vigor of ehrlier years, lhe party would sweep forward in an irresistible advance to victory for every name on Hie licket in every demo cratic or even iloubLful precinct. These con sidérai ions may well» claim attention w hen we reflect upon tiie fact lhat W. H. Claggett, \V. F. Sanders, and others of that stripe are to take part on the republican side in the campaign, and that every inch of ground will be stubbornly fought for. THE AlM'OIt MO Vtll M. The duty of léapporlioning Montana into council and legislative districts upon a basis of twelve members in the council and twen ty four in tlie house lias been accomplished by the board of apportionment. The task was one in whose consideration rival inter ests and eoiiUielmg claims were to be taken into account, and no matter what system might have been adopted there would most assuredly have been protests from some quar ter or oilier against the decision. The popu lation of ilie territory being 39,101, tlie ques tion was how to apportion it into twenty-four legislative districts, each having a population of 1,033, and into twelve council districts with a population, each, of 3,200. With its usual disregard of duty our democratic congress failed to incorporate in the appor ment act a clause authorizing tho board to weed out population from one county where it might be in excess arid transplant it to another showing a deficiency. If so sim ple a device as this had been adopted Hie territory could have been arranged wiiii beautiful symmetry into districts having eacli exactly . tlie requisite number— neither one more nor one less than required. There would then have been no kicking and everybody would have been satisfied. But, through an unfortunate oversight, authority to order such wholesale transplanting was not conferred, so the board had to take the terri tory as they found it, and make the best they could ot the job of dividing it. ln the di vision, as adopted into three council dis tricts, coinciding with Hie judicial districts into which the territory lias long been divid ed, we think the very best plan that could be lilt upon was adopted. Each council district is to elect four members of tlie council. Now, on the basis of 3,2(Ki for each member, it fol lows iliat each district should by rights have a population of 13,004, aud adding together tiie census returns oi Hie counties comprised in tlie different districts, we find that in each instance tlie aggregate is a very dose approx imation to the required number. Tlie district composed of tlie counties of Madison, Galit tin, Jefferson and Cosier lias a population of 12,547, showing a slight deficiency. The counties of Lew is & Clarke, Chateau, Meagh er and Dawson compose a ilisiiict having a population of 12,512, another deficiency irorn tlie required number of 13,004; while on tlie other hand, the last district, correspond ing to our second judicial district, composed of Deer Lodge, Missoula and Beaverhead counties, lias a population of 14,132, an excess ot over a thousand above T3,O04. Tlie dis tricts were all allowed tlie same number of ,„ enl bers. and to compensate for the iueuual j ity, Deer'Lodge county, which furnished the - r i excess of tlie last district, "as allowed one , more member in tlie House than it would otherwise have been entitled to. Tliis ar rangement we consider eminently just and satisfactory. As io tlie apportionment into House districts, no other than the one adopt ed could be proposed, so it cannot be criti cized and i.ee 1 not be defended. TELEGRAMS! ('blraio-Cfliuiwillive Drill.
