Cooper moved to reler to a committee of three, with the proviso that the committee r( .port this morniog. Carried,and Knowles, (jib-on and Burleigh were appointed the committee. The convention resolved itself into com mittee of the whole on proposition No. 18, the capital clause, Hershfield in the chair. J. K. Toole started the oratorical ball rolling by making a speech for Helena. Judge Dixon followed with an address on the legal points involved and made a strong plea for Butte. Whitehil! said no matter where the capital was located the people of Anaconda would vote lor the constitution. Judge Knowles made a hitter attack on Helena and advocated the removal of the capital. Middleton thenght there was no reason tor removing the capital. Let it stay where it is until the people could vote upon the question. Gibson thought the question should be settled now and wanted to see the tempo rary capital remain at Helena. Robinson admired Helena, but thought the people's representatives who assembled at the capital should not be subjected to the presure they always are placed under in Helena. He favored submitting the question to the people at an early date. Goddard said no particular city had any claim lo the capital, but he favored its re tention at Helena for the present. Collins' amendment, that the legislature shall provide for locating the permanent seat of government at the second general electioa after the adoption of the constitu tion, was put and lost. J. R. Toole moved that section 2 be adopted. The motion was put and lost ayes 30, noes 37. Maginnis moved an amendment to sec tion 2, in substance that the legislature shall have no power to change the seat of government, an i that the proposition to locate a permanent capital shall be sub mitted at the next general election. ^ Hartman moved to add to the provtso that Bozeman shall be the temporary capital. Rickards moved to strike out Bozeman and insert the city of Butte. Lost. Hartman's motion to insert Bozeman was put and carried. Collins moved an amendment to the effect that at the next general election the vote shall be for the temporary instead of the permanent capital, and making a plu rality of votes instead of a majority neces sary to determine the location. Warren moved to adopt Section 2 as amended. Carried. Rickards moved that when the commit tee rise t report back Proposition No. 18 with the recommendation that it pass as amended. Carried. The convention rose and the chairman asked a few minutes in which to make a report. Pending the report the convention took a recess for ten miDntes.

The convention resumed at 8 o'clock and again took up the capital question. Marrion's amendment to strikeout Boze man and insert Missonla was put and rar r j e( j_ B yea 44, noes 26, absent 3, paired 3 Middleton moved to reconsider the vote. Kennedy moved to lay the motion upon the table/ The motion was lost. Middleton withdrew his motion, and the am* ndment of Maginnis to strike ont the provit-o making Missoula the temporary capital was put. Fx-Goveruor Carpenter took the floor in support of the motion and made a clear, convincing argument to the effect that a proviso naming the seat of government was unnecessary in the constitution. Hesaidthat as the enabling act of congress provided that all laws in force in the Territory at the time of the adoption of the constitu tion should be continued in effect as the laws of the State until the State legisla ture could form a new code, and as one of these laws proclaimed Helena the capital, Helena would necessarily be the capital until that law was changed. He then spoke of the advantages of Helena for the capi tal and took his seat amid great applause ' Judge Luce took a different view He said unless the c° n ^ io " Da " e f capital the State would be without a capi tal until the question was voted upon by SÄ By viitoe oj the 1.« qjoted hv Carpenter Helena is the capital of the Temtorv of Montana but would not be the State capital onless so designated by the coustituUon.

If it was right for that conve tion why could not this convention do the same. Because, said Hershfield, that convention Congress J. K. Toole said he wanted every mem ber to understand that the effect of strik was not held under an enabling act passed by I ing out the proviso would be to leave the temporary capital at Helena, and in fact ; that was the motive prompting the motion, Under the ordinance which woold be adopted as the last part of the constitution the laws of the Territory could be made operative in the State. The amendment of Maginnis, to strike ont the provieo, was then put and lost hv the following close vote: Ayes—Breen, Brown, Boford, Bullard, Burns, A. F , Bums, A.

Before the count was called MaginniB asked permission to chaDge his vote to no, which was granted. The amendment was then declared lost by the following vote: Ayes, 35, noes, 38. Absent—Math, Web ster, 2. The convention then adjourned. Thirty-sixth Day-August 8 . MORNING SESSION. Convention met at 10 o'clock, pursuant to adjournment, President in the chair. Bullard was excused for the day. Rickards said he had learned that Durfee had met with an accident, and moved leave of absence be granted him until he was able to appear again. Granted. Knowles, chairman of special committee, having in charge Bickford's resolution re lating to expelling Journal reporters from the convention, asked for farther time in which to report. Granted. Parberry introduced a substitute for Section 2 of Proposition 18—the capital question—but it was withdrawn tem porarily, precedence being given to resolu tions for incorporation in the constitution. When unliuished business was reached Parberry again presented his substitue, as follows: Strike out sections 2 and 4 and insert in lieu there f the following: The legisla tive assembly shall have no power to change or locate the seat ot government of the State, but shall at its second regular session after the adoption of the constittition pro vide by law for submitting the question of the permanent location ot the seat of gov * rnment to the qualified electors of the State at a special election in October next ensuing, and a majority of all the votes upon said question cast at said election shall be necessary to determine the loca tion thereof. Said legislative assembly shall also provide that, in case there shall be no choice of location at said election, the question of choice between the two places for which the higt^st number ot votes shall have been cist shall be sub mitted in like manner to the qualified electors of the State at the next general election; and until the permanent seat of government shall have been decided the temporary location thereof shall be and re main at the present seat of government of the Territory, but no liability shall be in curred by the State for the purchase or erection of any buildings for temporary legislative purposes, nor shall the legisla tive assembly make any appropriations or expenditures for capital buildings or grounds until the seat of government shall have been permanently located as herein provided. Toole, J. K , moved its adoption. Wahren moved as an amendment to iay on the table, but withdrew his motion and moved further consideration be indefinite ly postponed. Parberry said he was not present during some of the debate yesterday, and thought they had moved the government wagen around long enough. It was time to call a halt, and if there was no other way he was in favor of running it into a mud hole and letting it stay. In his judgment Helena was the right and only place for the capital temporarily. He had not questioned the delegates from Lewis and Clarke on this subject aDd had raked none of them for advice. The convention could not vote directly on the ques ion. The capital had been to Bozeman bnt it could not be left there. It was like the drunken man who came home late at night, and when asked by his wife why he didn't come to bed, an swered: "Hie, wait till I come around again." [Laughter and applause]. Bozeman was waiting for it to come around aeaiD. Yesterday cost $500—q uite an expensive bill of fare—and I hope we will get down to business and decide this question to-day. [Applause]. Knowles said, according to the substitute, the legislature could not rent any buildiDg to meet in and would have to camp out on the prairie, and asked for the reading of that part touching on the subject in ques tion. , . J K. Toole moved to strike ont that part touching the subject of rental of buildiDgs Bickford moved to strike out the words or rental". Amendment was accepted by Toole. J. R. Toole offered as an amendment to strike out the word "Helena" and insert in lien thereof the word "Aiaconda." Collins moved to postpone further con sideration of the question until Monday. Warren said that as the dispute had be gun let it be carried through. There was a sentiment in the convention and among the people to change the capital and he thought the business onght to be got through with. J. R. Toole fully agreed with the gentle man from Bilvor Bow. The proposed loca tion of the capital was only temporary and he wanted to know if it should not be de cided to day. Bickford said be had no thought of steps being taken to move the capital from the present location, and if the will of the peo ple could be expressed by a vote Helena would probably remain the temporary capital until changed. Bat now several other towns had been brought up for the capital and Helena was defeated and the town of Missonla was chosen. Missoula has over 4,000 inhabitants, has a floe location, and the speaker wa9 sure if the capital was placed temporarily in bis town it would be taken care of, tor the time being at least. It nas a plenty of pare water and the best of hotel accommodations, and all the build ings necessary tor the legislature and the 8npreme court to meet in. If it is decided to place the capital at Missonla the conven tion may reet assured that the citizens will co operate in giving it welcome. The speaker thought the convention onght not to postpone or delay the matter over till Monday. Let us proceed at once to business, he said, and get through with it. Futte and Anaconda^ have claims, bnt Missoula never has asked for anything from the Territory or the United States ex cept the establishment of a military post for protection against the Indians. It is a modest claim. We have everything to offer and would consider it a great honor to have the capital in oar city. J R. Toole's motion to substitute Ana conda for Helena was lost by a vote of ayes 34; noes 34; 6 pared and 1 absent Warren moved to snbstitnte Great Falls for Helena. Lost by a vote of ayes 26, noes 42, 6 paired, 1 absent. Goddard moved to substitute Billings for Helena. Lost by a vote of ayes 27; noes, 40 Luce moved to substitute Bozeman for Helena. Carried by a vote of ayes, 36; noes, 31, pared 6. absent 2 Knowles, Kohrs and several other mem bers, who had voted no, changed their vote m. me committee as i of Maginnis, Bickford, , President Clark to act to aye. Cooper moved as an amendment to adopt the substitute as amended. J. K. Toole moved to amend by striking out a certain part, which provided where the seat of government shall be located, but before his amendment was presented Hartman moved a recess until 2 o'clock, which was carried. AFTERNOON SESSION. Convention resumed at 2 o'clock. Hickman offered a resolution reciting that whereas the Senate Committee on Irrigation wonld be in the city to-day, the members of that committee be invited to attend the convention and be given the privileges of the floor. The resolntion was nnanimonslv adopted, when Bickford moved the appointment of a special com mittee of five, the President of the Council to be its chairman and to name the other four members, to receive the Senate Com mittee and extend the courtesies of the con vention to its members. This motion was also adopted without dissent. The amendment to the capital proposi tion pending at the noon adjournment was withdrawn, and a substitute offered to sec tion 2 and 4., as follows: "The legislative assembly shall have no power to change or locate the Beat of gov ernment of the state, bnt shall at its sec ond regular session after the adoption of this constitution provide by law for sub mitting the question of the permanent lo cation of the seat of government to the qualified electors of the state at a special election in October then next ensuing, and a majority of all the votes upon said ques tion cast at said election shall be necessary to determine the location thereof. Saul legislative assembly shall also provide that in case there shall be no choice of location at said election the question of choice be tween the two places for which the highest number of votes shall have been cast shall be submitted in like manner to the qualified electors of the State at the next general election, and until the perma nent seat of government shall have been located permanently the temporary location shall be and remain at the present seat of government of the Territory, bnt do liability shall be incurred by the State for the purchase or erection of any build ing for temporary legislative purposes, nor shall the legislative assembly make any appropriations or expenditures for capital buildings or grounds until the seat of gov ernment shall have been located as herein provided." Toolle, of Deer Lodge, moved to amend by making it the first legislative assembly instead of the second to submit the capital question. Amendment lost—ayes 30, noes 41. Myers moved to amend so that the vote npon location of the capital would be taken at a general instead of a special election as provide^ in the substitute. The amendment prevailed. J. K. Toole offered an amendment strik ing out that clause of the substitute which designated Bozeman as the temporary cap ital, and explained that the effect of the adoption ot his motion would be to leave the temporary seat of government where it now is—Helena. Hartman moved to indefinitely postpone consideration of the amendment. Motion to indefitely postpone carried by a vote of 39 to 29. Burleigh demanded the previous ques tion. Lost—ayes 26, noes, 40. McAdow moved to reconsider the vote by which the motion to strike ont had been lost. Toole, of Deer Lodge, moved to lay that motion on the table. Motion to lay on the table carried 34 to 32. Marshall moved that section 2 as amend ed be adopted. KaDonse moved to amend the section by substituting the following: "After the admission of the State into the Union and at the general in the year 1892 the ques tion of permanent location of the seat of government is hereby provided to be sub mitted to the qualified electors of the State; and a majority of all the votes npon said question shall determine the location thereof. In case there shall be no choice of location at said election, the question of chice between the two places for which the highest number of votes shall have been cast, shall be and is hereby submitted in like manner to the qualified electors at the next general election therealter." Warren moved to amend by adding the following: "Provided that until the seat of government shall be permanently located, as herein provided, the temporory location thereof shall be and remain section 2, town ship 4, north of range 11 west of the prin cipal meridian ot Montana \\ arren stated that this was the township and sec tion on which the city of Anaconda was located, and in order to briDg the matter np tquarely he would move to strike out section and raDgeand insert Anaconda. Burleigh moved the previous question, which was carried. Burleigh called for the ayes and noes on the main question, and Warren's amendment was carried, 36 to 30 Toole, of Deer Lodge, moved that the last vote be reconsidered and laid on the table. Lost by a tie vote of 33 to 33. Hershfield moved to strike ont Ana conda and insert White Sulphur Springs. The motion to reconsider the vote on Warren's amendment, designating Ana conda as the capital, was then pot and car ried. Ayes 34, noes 32. Hershfield renewed his motion to insert White Snlphnr Springs, and spoke in favor oftbat place for the capital. Maginnis rose to a point of order. The gentleman from Silver Bow (Warren) had offered a proviso which contained the name ot Anaconda. That was carried. A motion to reconsider was also carried, and the question now remained on the substi tute offered by the gentleman from Meagher, Mr. Kanonse. The chair ruled the point of order well taken. Kanonse moved that Warren's amend ment be made the special order for 8 p. m. Warren amended to make it a special order for 10 a. m. Friday. Amendment accepted by Kanonse.

Geo L. Shoup, Governor. "Wm H Claggett, President. It was received with applanse and the chair was requested to make a suitable re sponse. Thirty-Seventh Day-August 9. morning session. Convention was called to order at ten o'clock. The usual order ot opening busi ness was dispensed with and B ckford rose and asked permission to withdraw his res olntion relating to expelling ihe Journal reporters and that an article of apologv published in the Journal be read. He thought it was a complete and tail retract ion tor the article published some time ago and asked unanimous permission to with draw the said resolution. J. K. Toole stated that the members of the Senatorial Arid Lands committee were in the building and offered the following resolntion. Whereas, The Senate committee to in vestigate and report upon the arid lands of the Northwest, composed of distinguished gentlemen in public life, accompanied by the directors of the Geologscal Survey are in the city, and by a resolution have been invited to visit the convention. There fore be it Resolved. That as a further mark ot re spect and courtesy upon onr part that the getlemen comprising said committee and the directors of the geological survey be and they are hereby invited to address this convention on the subject of irrigation aDd generally upon matters affecting the inter ests of the Northwest ; that a committee of three be appointed to escort the gentle men to the convention, and that the con vention take a recess for thirty minutes. The resolntion was adopted and the chair appointed J. K. Toole, Marshall and Callaway to escort the gentlemen to the hall of the convention and a recess of thirty minutes was taken. Senator Stewart, of Nevada, Senator Reagan, of Texas, Senator Plumb, of Kan sas, and Major Powell, chief the geological survey, soon put in their appearance, escorted by the committee. At 10:45 the convention was again called to order, and President Clark announced the convention would have the pleasure of listening to the noted gentlemen present on the subject of irrigation, and introduced Senator Stewart, of Nevada, who was received with cheersjand spoke at length, dealing with the subjects of iriggation and silver. At the conclusion of the address the con vention recessed till 1:30. This afternoon Senators Reagan and Plumb are expected to speak. Thirty-Eighth Day--August 10. MORNING SESSION. Convention met at 10 o'clock pursuant to adjournment. A dispatch was received from the town Stuart , which ran as follows: President Constitutional Convention:— *> hat is the matter with Stuart for per manent capital ? Citizens getting wrathy because no attention has been paid to them. Please read to convention and oblige. Board of Trade. Telegram read and referred to committee on irrigation. When unfinished business was reached proposition No. 35, relating to public lands, was taken up. Ramsdell thought the amendment pro viding that land to a greater amount than 160 acres shall not be sold to any one party or corporation was a good one and he was in favor of it. Luce believed there should be a market for arid lands and that it should not be limited. Parberry thought it had been left to the Legislature to govern this subject as it saw fit. He was opposed to selling 160 acres to one person for reasons that had been be fore stated. If 160 acres of arid lands are sold it mast be remembered it will be diffi cult to irrigate it. Hershfield was opposed to the amend ment. He thought it should be sold to any person and as mach as they want, pro viding they can pay for it. Burleigh was of the opinion that a man coming here and wanting to settle should have as much land as he coaid pay for. While these lands are unsold they were nntaxable and would not increase onr rev enue, bnt as soon as sold they were tax able. Conrad thought the lands should not be sold at a limit, and said a man who bought 160 acres with a water frontage virtually owned the other 480 acres without buying it. He agreed with Parberry on the sab ject and was opposed to the amendment. J. K. Toole thought that if this amount of land was sold to any one party he should be made to reside upon said land a certain time, and offered an amendment. Toole's amendment, as a proviso after line 5, was read. It provides that a person in case of default of payment after six months shall forfeit said lands and they shall be sold again. Luce offered a substitute for Toole's amendment. Chessman said there was too much of detail about this matter, as it completely tied the bands of the legislature, and he was opposed to any such amendment He thought it ehonld be left to the legislative body to make all the laws necessary to cover the proposed sale of arid lands. Collins thonght it shonld be referred to a committee with instructions to carefully examine the same and then to make a report on the step proposed to be taken. As far as he was concerned he would move to strike ont all of (Sections 1 and 2 except the lines which provide that "all the public lands of the State are held in trust for the people," etc. J. K. Toole thought that the agricul tural lands shonld go to the -ettler and was in favor of leaving the wb le subject to the legislature, bnt if there was to be any action taken he thonght that the lands should be occupied by actual settlers. Lnce withdrew his snbstitnte and offered another which was received and read. Burleigh stated that the amendment offered by the gentleman from Lewis & Clarke did Dot go fat enough or went too far, and said this snbject coaid be safely left to the legislature to act npon. Hershfield called attention of the con vention to the last section of proposition 28, in which the matter had already been provided for and the section adopted. Witter thought the whole matter shonld be left to the legislature. Carpenter said the amendment and the amendment to the amendment were very nnwise, as they covered the same ground. The limitation at 160 acres was absurd and the ordinary man wonld starve. According to the amendment it is very hard npon the poor man. In case of a bard season he woold he unable to make his first or sec ! <>nd payment, and there wonld be very few çcteal settlers npon the land. He favored leaving the matter to the legislature or fixing the amonnt of land to be sold to one person at 640 acres. Lnce said when he offered his snbstitnte he thonght it covered school lands, bnt npon reading Section 9 of Proposition 28 he found it had already been provided for and withdrew his amendment. The en abling act provided that the legislature was to act npon all snch lands as had been placed tor settlement by the government Callaway offered a snbstitnte for section 1, which was read. J. K. Toole stated the gentleman from Gallatin had misconstrued his meaning, and that as it is provided this must be left to the legislature to act npon he withdrew, his amendment. Callaway's amendment, or snbstitate, was read, when it was announced that an amendment by Judge Lnce yesterday had been adopted covering the amendment offered by Callaway. Callaway was satisfied with the amend ments ot Luce yesterday and withdrew his amendment Myers offered aa amendment to extend the time lor selling tde alternate lots so that the schoolla ids would have the use of extent o''line and moved to strike ont 1895 ajd substitute in place 1915. Amen tiiiem was lost by a vote of ayes 19, noes 22 Conrad moved to amend by extending it to 1910, and stated be boped this wonld prevail, and that the first lots shonld be sold as soon as the legislature could act, and thut the reserved lots be held off until 1910, so as to make their vaine greater. Burleigh stated there was one objection, and only one. Take the city of Missonla, which is rapidly growing, and in this case yon would put the reserve lots in snch a way that they conld not improve or en large their city. Marshall said he was satisfied that valu able leases aDd improvement conld be made under the enabling act. He was Dot atraid it wonld iojnre the school tands, but would injnre the whole conntry as well as Missonla. He was in favor ot holding the reserved lands until 1900. Conrad's mo tion to make it 1910 was carried. Schmidt asked for the readmg of the section as amended. ~~ : Lnce offered an amendment to section two. Section one as amended adopted. Luce's amendment was read. It provides that only the alternate odd numbered lots should be sold prior to 1910. Witter moved to amend the amendment by making it every alternate odd num bered lot. Mayger moved to refer proposition 35 with amendments to committee on printing, with instructions to print and then report. The chair stated it would be a good plan to adopt the amendments then before the convention and afterward print. Mayger withdrew his motion'.for the time being Hickman moved to refer the whole mat ter to the committee on revision and phraseology with instructions to draw up articles to cover same. Hogan called for reading of proposition as amended.. Burleigh moved its adoption, and ayes and noes were demanded. The vote stood: ayes 42; noes 6; absent 27, and proposition No. 35 was adopted. Marshall moved that when the conven tion adjourned it be till 4 o'clock Monday. Carried. Proposition No. 35 was referred to com mittee on enrollment and then to commit tee on revision and phraseology.
