Luce accepted the substitute. After an extended discussion of the irri gation problem, participated in by Gibson, Luce, Burleigh, Collins, Sargent, Knowles, Goddard aud others, Dixon's amendment was put to vote and carried. Callaway changed his vote to aye, making the result: Ayes, 39; noes, 30; absent, 6. The new section was then ordered printed. Section 3 was adopted. Carpenter moved the following as a sub stitute for Section 9, which was adopted : l'rivate property shall not be taken or sold for the corporate debts of public cor porations, but the legislature may provide by law for the funding thereof, and shall provide by law for the payment thereof in cluding all debts and obligations, by assess ments and taxation of all private property not exempt from taxation within the limits of the territory over which such corpora tions respectively have authority. Middleton moved to amend section 10by striking out "for a period of not less than ten years," which was carried. The sec tion now reads: "The making of profit out of public moneys or using the same for any purpose not authorized bylaw, by any public officer, shall be deemed a felony and shall be punished as provided by law; but part of such punishment shall be disquali fication to hold public office." Chessman moved to amend section 10 by making the limitation of tax l£ mills on each dollar instead of 1 mill. Carried. Proposition 27, with the exception of section 4, was adopted and leferred to the committee on revision and phraseology. The convention went into committee oi the whole, Kanouse in the chair, on propo sition 17, the article on education. Kennedy moved to add to section 2 reso lution No. 8, which provides that none of the school lands granted the state shall be sold. Lost. After a few minor amendments, the pro position was adopted as a whole. Iiichards moved that when the commit tee rise they report back proposition No. 17 with the recommendation that it pass as amended. Carried. Convention resumed and the chairman reported as directed. Keek moved that proposition No. 17 be placed upon its final passage. J. K. Toole moved to suspend the rules, read the proposition by title and place it upon its final passage. The amendments as adopted by the com mittee of the whole were read and adopted. Proposition No. 17 was placed upon its final passage and passed by a unanimous vote. The proposition was ordered engrossed and reierred to the committe on revision and phraseology. Adjourned. Twenty-ninth Day*. August 1. Convention met at 10 o'clock. President Clark in the chair. Conrad offered a resolution to the effect that property rights in Indian leservations should remain vested in the United States. Referred to the judiciary committee. The substitute offered yesterday by Dixon to proposition No. 27, relating to the taxation of ditches and canals, was left over until this afternoon. The article on legislative departments was also laid over. The convention went into committee of the whole on proposition 28, miscellaneous subjects and future amendments. Loud moved to amend section 1, by add ing after the oath or affirmation the words "so help me God." This provoked a discussion over the pro priety ot recognizing religion in the consti tution, Kamsdell speaking against it. Burleigh favored the amendment, and said he was not in favor of departing from the teachings of his childhood. The amendment of Loud was then put and carried. Section 2 and 3 were passed without dis cutsion. Section 4, relating to protection against fires in timber and prairie lands, and that the legislature may pass sensible laws against the origin ot fires by locomotives, called forth an animated discussion. Mo tions were made to strike out the section. Goddard said that there should not be any thing in the constitution that savored of legislation. The section was retained on a tie vote. Sections 6, 7, 8 and 9 were passed by the committee. Section 10, relating to issuance of free passes to members ot the legislature and state officers, proved the stumbling block of the day. Maginnis favored that railroads be com pelled to issue transportation to all officers, without fear or favor, or he wanted the whole matter let alone. His proposition Wftfl logt. Goddard, in substance, favored a like amendment and wanted editors of news papers included. Motions to strike ont the section were frequently put but ruled out by the chair, who decided that amendments had precedence over motions to strike out. Burleigh and Callaway had a passage at arms over the section. Without arrivmg at a settlement the motion that the committee arise and re port progress was carried. Adjourned un til 2 p. m. AFTERNOON session. Convention resumed at 2 o'clock. On motion ot CalUway the vote, by which section 27. on State finances, was adopted, was recons dered. n . „ This is the substitnte offered by Di*on, providing for the taxation of canals, ditch es and flumes upon their annual net pro Le CoTlins moved that it be indefinitely postponed . _ , An extended discussion sprang np and the question was debated at length by many prominent members. 1 many, a several amendments had been proposed and voted down, the motion to indefinitely postpone was put and carried by a vote or 38 to 34; nor could Callaway's motion to reconsider and lay on the table resurrect the question. On motion of Maginnis the convention went into committee of the whole for fur ther consideration of proposition 28, mis cellaneous subjects. The clerk of the committee of the whole was absent, and Hickman moved that the committee when it arise report the clerk as having been derelict in his duties and recommend his discharge Haskell stated that the clerk was en gaged in other duties. Hickman insisted upon his motion, which was put and lost. The motion to strike out section 10 was carried by a vote of 33 to 29. The section is as follows : "No railroad or other transportation company, nor any agent, officer or em ployee thereof, shall grant free passes or tickets, or passes or tickets at a discount, to members of the legislative assembly, or any state, county or municipal officer or officers; and the acceptance of any tuch pass or ticket by a member of the legisla tive assembly, or any such officer or offi cere shall work a forfeiture of his or their office, and the emoluments thereof; and any railroad or other transpor ation com pany violating any provision of this sec tion shall forfeit to the State one thousand dollars, (f 1,000) for each and every viola tion thereof, to be recovered by an action at law," J. K. Toole offered a substitute for sec tion 10, as follows: Toe legislative assembly shall pass laws prohibiting railroads or other transporta, tion companies from granting free passes, or selling tickets at a discount to any State, county, district or municipal officer. The substitute was adopted. Kotwitt moved to strike out Section 11 : "Any citizen of this State, who shall, after the adoption of this constitution, fight a duel with deadly weapons, or send or ac cept a challenge for that purpose, or be aider or abettor in fighting a duel, either in this State or out of it, shall be deprived of the right of holding any office of honor or profit in this State and be otherwise pun ished as shall be prescribed by law," and the motion prevailed. Goddard moved to strike out section 12, which was carried. The section struck out is as follows: "All property, both real and personal, of the wife owned and claimed by her before marriage and that acquired by her after marriage by gift, devise, descent or other wise, shall be her separate property ; and laws shall be passed clearly defining the rights of the wife in relation as well to her separate property as that held in common with her husband and providing for the registration of the wife's separate property." Knowles moved to strike out section 8. "All officers shall hold their offices until their successors are elected and qualified. The term of all officers elected, except as otherwise provided in this constitution, shall commence on the first Monday in January next following their election." As school directors, county treasurers and some other officers connot settle up their affairs at once. The motion to strike out carried. Hickman moved that when the commit tee arise it report back the proposition with the recommendation that it pass as amended. Committee arose and the convention ad journed. Thirtieth Day--Augnst 2. MORNING SESSION. Convention called to order at 10 o'clock, President Clark in the chair. Quorum present. After prayer by the chaplain and reading of the minutes, the report of the committee on corporations other than municipal was submitted. Reading was suspended and the report ordered printed. Committee on mining water rights re ported Proposition No. 30 and recom mended that it do not pass. A memorial was presented by Warren, from Silver Bow. It related to the lead ore question and intends to memorialize the Treasury Department to have a decision rendered as early as possible. Collins moved to have it ieferred to the committee on mining and water rights. Warren moved the adoption of the me morial. The resolution was referred to this com mittee. The committee of the whole reported proposition No. 8, miscellaneous subjects, with amendments and recommended that it do pass as amended. The amendments were then taken up and considered in their regular order. Robinson offered a substitute to Bection 10, relating to railroad passes. Hartman moved to lay the substitute on the table. Ayes and noes were called for. The substitute and the amendment as well as section 10 were laid upon the table by a vote of 48 to 27. Maginnis offered an amendment to be insetted as a new section. He wanted it read for information, which was objected to. The chair sustained the oljectionand stated it would be read after the report of the committee of the whole. Hersbfield wanted section 12 sustained, as it would give women the right to protect their own property, which they bave or may acquire. Burleigh opposed the section. Parberrv wanted it sustained, as the legislature had failed to provide laws for the record of property held by women. After debate Burleigh offered a substi tute. He wanted the property and politi cal rights of women placed on an equal looting with those of meii. [Laughter.] A motion to lay upon the table called forth the ayes and noes. Maginnis asked, on his name being called, if this substitnte would not confer upon women the right ot absolute suffrage. On information he voted aye. The substitnte and section were laid on the table by a vote of 38 to 32. Kennedy offered another amendment against railroad passes, which was amend ed by Maginnis. It was ruled out of or der. Marshall offered an amendment that all school lands lying within a mile of any city and worth more than (50 an acre, shall not be sold in more than 5-acre tracts if sold prior to 1895. He spoke in favor of the measure and to keep out speculators from it. This would give poor people a chance to purchase a borne near a city. He cited as a case sec tion 16, adjoining Missoula, which lies next to the townsite and comes within the di rect growth of the city. He wants the convention to provide for such land, be there much or little. It was not proper to give to the legislature the right to sell this land as it pleases. Bickford supported this proposition, as many had already bnilt homes on small parcels of such lands and they should be protected in obtaining and retaining title to their homes. The amendment was referred to commit tee of the whole, to be considered with proposition 23. (Public lands and exemp tions.) Eaton offered another amendment to pro hibit members of the legislature and ju diciary from accepting passes. Calls were heard for points of order and the chair desired the convention to decide whether to admit it or not Motion of Craven to lay it upon the table called forth the ayes and noes again. Mo tion to lay on table lost by a vote 29 ayes, 32 noes. The amendment includes also the state or a county board of equalization. Accep tance of such passes by members shall work forfeiture of office and its emoluments. Craven claimed the section was pure l eg islation and buncombe. If this thing kept up, the convention would sit two months more. If this proposition was fa vored by the people the legislature would surely act upon it. Question on the adop ion of the proposi tion called for the ayes and noes. It was carried by a vote of 38 ayes to 35 noes. Moved that Proposition 18, as amended, be ordered to the engrossing committee. Toole moved that it be printed and al lowed to lay upon the desks of the mem bers for some time, as there might be some other matters pertaining to this measure arise in the near future. Middleton offered to amend his motion in favor of Toole's. Recess until 2 o'clock. AFTERNOON SESSION. Convention met at 2 o'clock. Proposition No. 28 was referred for printing. Convention went into committea of the whole, Eaton in the chair. Proposition 19, on legislative departments, was taken up. Section 4 was the first to create any dis cussion. It provides that the State Senate shall consist of sixteen members, one lrom each county, and the House of Representa tives of fifty members. Middleton moved that the House of Representatives consist of fifty-five mem bers instead of fifty. Carried. Robinson offered a resolution limiting the number of members of the House of Representatives to forty members. Lost. Collins moved to make the pay of mem bers of the legislature (10 a day instead of $6, and Robinson moved that their pay be (5 a day and that they may receive 10 cents a mile for mileage; also that each member must make oath that he has not traveled on a free pass in order to secure the mileage claimed. Both motions lost. Luce moved to amend section 9 by mak ing it read that "no session of the legisla ture shall exceed ninety days." Clark moved to amend section 5 by re ducing the term of the first legislature to seventy-five days. Lost. J. K. Toole moved that "at the seat of government" should be inserted after the provision for members of the legislature to meet. The motion was carried. The second Tuesday after the first Mon day in January, the time for the legislature to meet, was stricken out on motion of Carpenter leaving the time for the legislature to meet the first Monday in January. On motion of Carpenter, "Legalizing ex cept as against the State, the unauthorized or invalid act of any officer exempting property from taxation," was stricken out. This clause is among the things the legis lature cannot pass special laws for. Winston offered an additional section, 45, which provides that in the case of death of members in either house the gov ernor may issue writs of election. The mo tion prevailed and the section was adopted. Conrad introduced an additional section, to be known as section 46, which provides for the appointment of a State examiner by the governor and prescribe his duties. Mo tion carried. Hersbfield moved to insert in section 26 the words "bank, insurance, loan or trust companies," for which the b gislature is forbidden to pass any special act. The motion carried. On motion of Marion "responsible" was added to 'Lowest'' in the section providing for the letting of bids for articles used in government departments. Hickman moved to add to section 34 "no money shall be paid out of the treasury except upon appropriations made by law and warrants drawn by the proper officer in pursuance thereof, except for interest on the public debt." The motion prevailed. The committee then arose and reported, recommending the adoption of proposition 19 as amended. Convention resumed. The vote by which section 4, proposition 27, on ditches, canals, etc., was indefinitely postponed, was reconsidered and the mat ter made a special order for next Tuesday morning. The report of the committee of the whole was taken up and proposition 19, on legis lative departments, came np for final passage. Robinson moved to amend section two by making the number of State Senators 21 instead of 16. J. K. Toole moved to amend by making the number of Senators 26 instead of 16. A long discussion ensued on this subject, in the midst of which a motion to ttcljourn was put and carried. Thirty-first Day--August 3. MORNING SESSION. Convention was called to order at 10 o'clock. After roll call and prayer the minutes of the previous day were read and approved. Jodge Dixon presented two reports of the judiciary committee, who reported that no action be taken in regard to In dian reservations, as the convention had no authority to act ; also that communication be printed as received from Gen. Roger and considered as part of the constitution. Report of committee on ordinances was submitted and ordered printed. Marshall submitted a proposition re lating to public lands, which was read. It recommends the classification of the lands granted to the State. It divides them into the following classes: 1st class. Grazing lands, which shall not be sold but leased. 2nd. Timber lands, which may bo sold, or the timber thereon, under proper laws. 3rd. Agricultural lands, which may be sold or leased under regulations of laws. 4th. Lands within corporate limits of any incorporated town or city, or within a mile of such limits, worth more than $50 an acre; which shall not be sold in lots larger than five acres, and not more than half of them shall be sold by 1895. No lands shall be leased for less than $10 an acre, and the lease shall not extend over five years. Marshall's proposition was ordered printed and will be considered with prop osition 23. Bickford offered the following substitute for section 1, proposition No. 23: Section 1. All the public lands of the State are held in trust for all the people and none of such land nor any estate or in terest therein, shall ever be disposed of ex cept in pursuance of general laws provid ing for such disposition, nor unless the full market vaine of the estate or interest dis posed of to be ascertained in such manner as may be provided by law, be paid or safely secured to the State; nor shall any lands which the State holds by grant from the United States (In any case in which the manner of disposal and minimum price are so prescribed) be disposed of ex cept in the manner and for at least the price prescribed in the grant thereof, with out the consent of the United States. The substitute was ordered printed and will * 1*0 be considered in connection with Proposition 23. J. K. Toole's proposition to increase the the number of State Seuators from 16 to 26 came op for consideration. Middleton opposed the proposition. He wanted an equal representation of the people in at least one of the honsee. It would give them a certain check over the majority of the other house. Toole's amendment was lost by vote of 30 to 42. Warren moved to amend by inserting 25 for 16. Craven spoke bitterly against the motion and called it the work ot pothonse politi tians. He had been told his vote on this question would inflnence the retention of the capital at Helena. Votes were being traded. He did not want three counties to tyranize all the others, just because they had a few more people. Motion for previous question was sus tained by vote of ayes 36, noes 27, absent 4 paired 8. Warren's amendment was then put to a vote by the calling of the ayes and noes. The result was as follows: 24 ayes. 40 noes, absent 3, paired 8. Confusion ensued. Calls for reconsider ation were strong. Callaway insisted on his right to the floor. Points of order were raised and the chair after reading the rules sustained it. The main question was to be put next. It was moved that when the convention adjourn it be until Monday at 4 p. m. Carried. Moved that the convention now adjourn. Lost. Moved the convention take a recess, which called out another equabble over the rules. The chair stated that a motion tor a recess was held to have precedence, but the chair submitted it to the convention in order to obtain the sense of the members Warren moved to take recess till 4 p. m. Lost. Rickards repeated his motion to take a recess till 2 o'clock. Middleton said that after the previous question bad been called for, motions for recess were out of order. The chair entertained Rickard's motion, which was lost. Question then was on the adoption of section 4, under the calling of the ayes and noes. Result: 41 ayes, 26 noes. Paired 6, absent 2. The section was adopted. Callaway moved that the vote be recon sidered and lay it upon the table. Toole asked that he obtain consent to address the convention. He stated that the convention had taken advantage of the proposition to allow him to amend it all along the line until the proper number had been reached, and he hoped the motion to lay on the table would not carry. Callaway's motion was divided. Motion to lay on the table was lost—36 ayes ; 30 noes ; 6 paired ; 3 absent. Motion to reconsider was declared carried. Convention adjourned until Monday at 4 p. m. A SHORT VACATION. Meeting Montanians on the Sound— Mount Tacoma and the Moon, Tacoma, W. T., July 30 —To the Herald: It is a trite remark that a Montana man is never away from home. Go where he will on this continent or abroad he is sure in the course of his wanderings to meet some body else from the land of bullion and bunch grass, with whom tidings of home and friends may be discussed. All West ern people are great travele'8, but Montan ians especially seem to be among the best patrons ot hotels and transportation lines. I had not been here five minutes until .1 met General C. W. Turner and family, of Helena, who have gone to Seattle to spend the summer The face of General Tyner, who has been much in Helena and is now on the Oregonian at Portland, was also a familiar sight on the day of my arrival. Another surprise was my meeting with I. Salhinger, formerly of Helena, who has about made up his mind to locate in Tacoma. George G. Chandler and D. C. Jackson, erstwhile popular railroad men of Helena, are located here. Mr. Chandler is general passenger and ticket agent for the Northern Pacific at Tacoma and Mr. Jackson is his assistant. H. H. Chandler, formerly of Wickes, is also in his brother's office. At the hotel Montanians are seen frequently. I met Major Palmer and A. M. Thornburgh on their return from Alaska, and at the same time H. M. Pärchen and T. H. Klein schmidt and their families. W. D. Knight, formerly of Miles City, but now proprietor of the Spokane Falls Chronicle , was also here a few days ago. These are only the few that I have met, out of a large number who have visited the Sound country this summer. This section seems to be a favor ite one with Montana people, and certainly as the nearest sea coast and a pleasant place of resort, deserves their attentions. MOUNT TACOMA AND THE MOON. I have said very little of Mount Tacoma, or Mount Rainier as first known, because the pen must fail in an attempt to picture its grandeur. It stands to the southeast of Tacoma at a distance that lends a softening effect to its rugged outlines. Towering for over 14,000 feet in the air, its peaks pierce the region of clouds and its summit slopes are enveloped in perpetual snow. The shape is regular as viewed from this distance, though its apparent ly smooth surfaces are rent with rugged gorges that are a terror to hardy tourists who dare its difficult ascent. During all my stay, I never once saw the base of the noble giant, the mist and smoke arising from the intervening country generally obscuring it up to the snow line, and frequently shutting off all view of even the towering peaks. When the top is visible, however, a grander panorama than the sunset makes on its glistening summit was never seen. One evening a short time ago I was sitting on the shaded piazza, watching the sunset creep up the snowy mountain, the air that evening being unusually clear and af fording a splendid view of the noted peak. The changing colors, as the white sunlight melted to a golden tint and dissolved in a more lurid glare that gave a weird effect to the scene, were being devoured by thou sands of pleased eyes and enthusiastic com ment was rife. A murmur of disappoint ment was heard as the last sunbeam kissed the snowy peak and left the summit to the darkness of the fast gathering shadows of night, but this was quickly succeeded by rapturous outburst, as the full moon began to peer over the mountain, lighting up the scene that the sun had just deserted, little by little the great planet climbed up behind the mountain top, first showing a tiny crescent so silvery in its hue as to al most taken for a part of the snow-clad sum mit. Gradually it grew larger and larger as if going through the last stages of an eclipse, and finally rested like a huge, sil ver ball exactly on the top of the sharpest and highest peak. The contact lasted but a moment and then the queen of night sailed higher in the sky, leaving old Ta coma once more to the gathering shadows. Vhe sight, however was a glorious one, and the sp ctacle will never be forgotten by all who had the pleasure of witnessing it J. A PLEA FOR THE GRAND JURY. Some Reasons Set Forth Why the Sys tem Should be Retained Un derstate Government. Dillon, M. T., July 29.—Editor Her ald.— Knowing that the opinions of "con stituents at home" are frequently desired by legislators and delegates in convention, I ask the indulgence of a little space in your well read paper. Seeing that the consideration of the grand jury question is betöre the constitu tional convention, now in session at Helena, I have taken some pains to agitate the subject among those with whom I have lately come in coutact, and feel quite as sured that the abolition of the grand jury system, without a fuller expression of pub lic sentiment on the matter than is at this time obtainable, and without the substi tution of something more adequate than the jurisdiction of the elective justice of the peace and county attorney, would, to say the least, be a hazardous experiment. Such momentous questions will arise and disastrous consequences sometimes follow tbe'r hasty decision. The grand jury question is int.resting alike to all, the rich as well as the poor. It is a tribunal drawn largely from the most subs'antial and intelligent classes, men of property, tax payers, who can ill afford to Duilify laws or countenance crime They are the most difficult class to be reached aDd affettrd by "influence" or bribery The secrecy and energy of the grand jury room is appalling to that Dtimerous class of criminals who seek, through political influence, the bonds of intriguing alliance, or the potent aid of money bestowed on corrupt officials to evade the laws that they are willing to see enforced against less favored evil-doers. The dignity and respectability of the grand jury is, in a degree, reassuring to a numerous class of timid witnesses, who naturally dread the publicity of an ordi nary preliminary examination, and import ant evidence is frequently obtained that could not, or would not. be brought out by an elected or salaried officer. The mem bers of the grand jnry are drawn from every part of the county, and compara tively lew offenders who can be brought to j ustice escape notice. The machinery of the law is, at best, cumbersome and expensive, and must ever be necessarily so, but let us not inadvert ently let go of a good thing until we are very sure we have secured a better. As I once heard one of our present con stitu ional delegates remark, "A man's prospective profits are not as important as the soundness of the security." A majority of the voters of our Territory would most certainly be unwilling to de pend upon the average j ustice ot the peace to defend our liberties and property against the encroachment of the law breaking classes. Instances might be cited where a justice of the peace has refused to issue a warrent, or resigned his office to shield an influen tial or wealthy culprit, and how common it is for a complaining witness to be frowned down or ignored by a biased pros ecuting attorney. On the other hand in stances have occurred in which the grand jury has been besought to wreak private spite on individual citizens, but to the honor and credit of the system be it said, that such efforts are seldem or never suc cessful, as many an unscrupulous com plainant conld testify; grand juries spend little time on snch cases. It has been urged against the system that it is expensive. So are police officers, coarts and schools. Men have been known to advocate the non-prosecution of high crimes on the ground of economy. Away with parsimony in the administration of justiee. That community is not economic ally governed in which rigorous and im partial j ustice is not dealt to all. And the more her best citizens are engaged in the administration of her laws, the more pros perous will be the new State of Montana Older States and communities may have peace officers, elected by the people, who can be relied upon to enforce the criminal laws, bnt our Territorial populations are too mixed and promiscuous to have the examination of offenders relegated solely to officers who may be controlled by party bosses or by personal considerations.
