A petition, carrying 32 names, pro tests against the licensing of any sa loon at Grantsdale. Twenty-six residents of Darby and vicinity have petitioned the board to grant but one saloon license at Darby. More Litigation In the incorporated town of Hamil ton, the saloonmen, acting upon ad vice of council, have made no applica cation for licenses but will apply to the county treasurer. County Attorney Calkins states that he does not think the commissioners have supervision over the saloons within incorporated towns and that petitions to the board in such cases are unnecessary, but since the wording of the law is somewhat vague and ambiguous he would prefer to have a : ruling by the court in the matter. ; Accordingly he has advised County I Treasurer Carter to refuse to issue j licenses to applicants in the incorpor ! ated towns. This action will neces i sitate a ruling by the court and which ! may be had by mandamus proceed | ings, so as to secure a ruling as soon j as possible, at the January term of 1 court.

THINKS IT IS NOT NEEDED. Governor Toole Hakes Reply to Request for Special Legislative Session. Helena, Dec. 22.— Govenor Toole to day made a written reply to the com munication from the Montana Rate association, asking if he would call a special session of the legislature to enact a state railroad commission law providing that he had the assurance that the lawmakers would pass a meas ure in accordance with the principles enunicated in his veto message. He says that while the communication is persuasive, it has not convinced him of the propriety of calling an extra ses sion under the conditions that the members might agree to do certain things prior to his calling the session. He says that only 33 were present when the rate convention passed the resolution for an extra session, and says that he is not convinced it amounted to a popular clamor for an extra session. He says that rate legis lation is how before congress, and much may be learned therefrom to as sist the legislature. '•Whatever our grievances may be" continues the governor,"they have not grown out of any sudden emergency or unexpected condition calling for an extiaordinary session." He contends that if the people of Montana favor rate legislation, as he believes they do "they will lose nothing by waiting pa tiently until next regular session, a year hence, and thus avail them selves of the exhaustive researches which congress is sure to make on that subject. He states that if any contingency now unforseen requires a special ses j j ! sion, and the lawmakers agree in a ^igtied petition to pass the bill cured of j the defects pointed ut in his veto, j "I would not hesitate by special tneas sage to extend the powers of the legis lature for that purpose. The other work laid out by the convention meets my unqualified approval and ought to fur nish employment for tour most excel lent committee in the meantime," con cludes the goveenor, referring to gath ering data of alleged freight inequali ties.
