little healthy talk on the suggestion of the

liable to libel suits, $5,000 fine and incar

the Governor and Secretary. What's the

-The Montanian announces its intention
to publish a BLACK LIST of persons who
have ordered their subscriptions discontin

in this particular instance there are unusual
circumstances, we are not sure but that it
will have a healthy effect. There is no man
in Montana but can pay for his paper
if he will Country papers cannot, as the
city papers, very wellestablish an inexorable
rule of pay in advance. As a result publishers
lose thousands of dollars by chronic delin
quents and absconding patrons. Often this
eats up nearly or quite the entire profits of
their work and sometimes results in swamp
ing the paper. Scattered accounts of a few
dollars each are difficult and expensive to
colleet, and where necessarily done by
process of law, the satisfaction is about all
the net proceeds. The publsher- feels he
can neither afford to collect by an attorney
or be swindled out of it. If then, he sees
proper, after repeated ordinary efforts have
failed to procure payments justly due him,
to advertise these small frauds, as honesty
and public sentiment require he shall

After mature deliberation as to the facts,
their consequences, and the best method to
remedy what we believed an evil, we took
occasion in the issue of October 10th to call
attention to the Records of the Montana
Penitentiary showing that of some fifty
convicts committed thereto since July 25th,
1871, none had served out their full term of
sentence and that thirty-three had been
pardoned. We believed the constant im
portuning of the Governor to pardon con
victs, and his granting such pardons had
been carried to an extent prejudicial to the
public welfare and that a cessation or less
universal exercise of "clemency" was
demanded by considerations greater than
those which called for its exercise. We
still entertain that opinion, confirmed and
strengthened by circumstances which have
since come to our knowledge. It was not
done to make " war " on Governor Potts.
The object was simply to state the facts as
they existed, to place on record a protest
against them, and if there was a wrong to
do our share towards having it righted. It
is a matter wherein if the Governor is right
lie need not dread publicity; if wrong he
could not expect concealment. That there
might be no misunderstanding of the facts
we set forth a list of the persons, their
crimes, term of sentence, date of imprison
ment and time of pardon. We find the
Montanian, speaking for the Governor,
virtually admits the correctness of our posi
tion by offering excuse, palliation and small
quibbles in lieu of a general defense or any
sustained argument in favor of universal
pardons. It claims that two of the thirty
three pardons were U. S. prisoners not
subject to the clemency of Governor Potts.
One of these we had so credited, and
the other was probably an error in tran
scribing the record, and anyhow he was
pardoned. It says that "Chas. Smith and
" Frank Smith whose names appear in the
"list of pardoned served out their terms of
"imprisonment." But there was no such
name as " Charles Smith " in the list, and
Frank Smith who was imprisoned Dec. 24,
1872, for one year was discharged Dec. 11,
1873. If he had the 30-days remission for
good behavior lie was unrighteously impris
oned eighteen days over the time. If this
was not the case, then he was pardoned
eleven days before his term expired. Take
which horn of the dilemma you choose.
Thus the record is unimpaired. Even if
there had been an error of one it would
have been more than offset by the prisoner
pardoned out of the Madison county jail
before trial, the case of the Indian in custody
at Missoula for shooting at Mr. Baker dis
charged on the intimation of the Executive
that the Territorial statutes would not take
cognizance of such crime, and the pardon
issued to a convict in the Penitentiary which
was not delivered to him. The Governor
says he can offer a reason for his action in
every case and that the Legislature has
never disapproved of any pardon. There
are few acts for which some reason cannot
be offered. The important matter is if the
reason is sufficient. That point may be
worthy of consideration. We do not think
the Legislature gave the Governor's Pardon
Report much more thought than it did
several other documents he submitted to
it. What business was it of the Legis
lature ? It was not their province to confirm
his pardons. Suppose the members did
not approve the pardons, what could they
do about it? It is further said by the
Afontanian "a petition for pardon has
"never been granted unless some of the
"best citizens signed it, and the Warden
" of the Penitentiary had reported favorably
"regarding the good behavior of the pris
"onerin confinement." Perhaps the mean
ing of the above is that the pardon has
been granted only on those conditions.
Very well; an object of ourt artiola was to
break up the "petition" imposition upon
the people and the Executive, while coun
selling the latter to a candid, thorough and
penitent consideration of whether he had
not exercised this pardoning prerogative to
an unwarrantable extreme. Some months
or years ago we signed one or two of these
petitions; we have declined to sign others
many times and every time since. When
there is good cause shown, the Judge, Jury
and Prosecuting Attorney will ask a remis
sion of the penalty and give cause for the
petition. Their knowledge of and identifi
cation with the case and their request
should have more weight than a thousand
miscellaneous signatures of men who know
nothing, or know only by hearsay, of the
crime for which the penalty was inflicted.
If they refuse interposition it is fair to con
clude the subject is notentitled to the exer- 1
cise of those extraordinary powers vested
in the Executive. In this matter there is a
principle and a precedent involved which I
materially effects the people of this Terri
tory. We argue that abstractly from the
identification of Governor Potts, or any one
to whom his clemency has extended, with
the point at issue. We thinkthis universal 1
pardon business should stop, and are con
tent if it does, but cannot accept the state
ment of the Montanian that this "assault"
upon the Governor, as it is pleased to term
it, can be "triumphantly repulsed" unless I
the wil of the Executive is to be held 1
superior to the laws and established methods
of procedure and punishment.
The Arvan Courier is soon to be resumed,
withfai indicatiou, if rumor is true, that
Bozeman will have two papers. The an
nounced suspension of the Courier was
somewhat of a mystery. It appears Col.
L. M. Black owned the principal part of the
material of the office, and Captain Wright
the balance of the material, the name, good
will, etc., of the concern. CoL Black de
termined to change the policy of the paper,
and took the occasion of the expiration of
Capt. Wrigit's lease to make a new lease
ofhe materiail to Mr. JI. V. Bogert, without
giving Capt.- Wright that opportunity
which would have been equitable to make
arrangemetits therefor. The rasult was
that the material of the Courier was seized
and transferred when the forms were nearly
ready to lock up for an issue, and its tem
porary aispeusion had to be ainnounced
through other papers. Capt. Wright was,
however, not withot friends in the exigen
cy, and would natsally racquire manys w
and strong ones by teoccumt ce. He was
therefore enabled to at once negotiate for
other material hbere in Montana, the Nw

As soon as Secretary Ca.away had consulted with
his counsel, after his arrest on the Eth inst, a tele
gram was sent to the proper officer in Deer Lodge by
Judge James G. 8pratt, for the purpose of procuringa
speedytrial and determination of the questionS in
volved. The District Attorney, Hon. A. R. Mayhew,
was requested to take the Indictment to Bannack. and
allow TJudge Servi to act in the premises on the 12th
inst. lie was notified to subpoena no witnesses, as
theSecretary would waive all technicalities, and ad
mit all the facts a!leged in the indictment, to secure a
hearing at that early day. This wish was denied by
the "powers that be," although we are info,'med that
Mr. ]Mayhlw was willing to accede to the proposition.
Secretary Callaway will be compelled to go to Deer
Lodge at the December term of the District Court, to
be tried by a jury and wait for the verdict.--Aontan

We have before stated our weariness of
having to instruct the lawyer-editor of the
M.ontaniasl on legal points. But once more
we feel obliged out of consideration for his
age and position to call his attention to the
statutes. By reference to the Codified
Statntes, page 223, section 225, he will see
that not a single condition of the many
required by law was complied with by Secre
tary Callaray or his counsel to procure a
change of venue. We respect the laws of
Montana over on this side of the Territory.
And we begin to apprehend from the record
of Brother Blake, who is one of the accom
plished attorneys of Virginia, that many of
the tresspasses in his neighborhood which
have been attributed to baser designs are
the results of sheer ignorance. Take a
copy of the statutes some day and read

FROM THE "NORTH COUNTRIE."
A Missoulian's Impressions at " Whoop
EnITon NEw NORTH-WEST:-
Three copies of the NEW NORTH-WERT
reached me a few days ago. I was glad in
deed to receive the papers-to read them
being like conversing with some friend just
over from the superior " West Side."
At present it is very lonely and the lively
or trading season does not commence until
the snow flies and the hair gets good.
I crossed the boundary line on the 24th
nult. A small monument just north of Red
River marks the line, about 130 miles out
on the road from Benton. The whole road
traveled over between Missoula and here
was devoid of interest. A rolling prairie,
cut up occasionally by coolies-covered
with short, dried up grass and prickly pear
-no other vegetation, and not a stick of
wood between the Marias and Belly Rivers.
Fort Hamilton, a very strong place, built
out of solid hewed cottonwood logs and
said to have cost $10,000 in construction, is
situated on the right bank of Belly River
and on the left of the St. Mary's just above
the month of the latter, distant from Fort
Benton 200 miles north easterly. Both
rivers run between high bluffs on the top of
which is the "prairie." Cottonwood is
abundant in the bottoms.
TIlE CHARACTER OP COUNTRIY.
In this neighborhood the soil and climate
are unsuited for agricultural purposes, and
no vegetables whatev r are or have been
been produced to merit mention. No
farmer would ever choose this as a country
to make a homestead in. The country to
wards Bow River and the Saskatchewan is
more favorable. Some parties have been
out prospecting the past season, but so far
nothing has been found but colors. The
broken banks show slate and limestone;
coal of the finest quality is abundant, and
we use it for fuel. Petrified fish, turtles,
oysters, clams, etc., are met with often and
for the eyes of a geologist the country may
The Indians consist of North and South
Piegans, Gros Ventres, Sarcees, Crees,
Stones, Bloods, Sioux, and the Kootenais,
and Pon'd Oreilles occasionally come cver
the mountains to hunt and trade. The
white population, (I think not exceeding 5C
all told) is mixed and scattered. At this
place, the largest post, there are only 5 or G
besides myself. The chief business is wolf
ing, hunting and trading through the win
ter. There may be some hard cases in the
community, but so far as my experience
goes, "Whoop-Up" has been greatly exag
gerated. I have no doubt that here as
elsewhere, some parties have made a pre
canrious living trading whisky, and it is said
that most of the "poison" came from Win
nipeg. At present not a drop of liquor can
be had at any price, and to introduce any
hereafter will be a risky business.
AN EPISODE OF THE FRONTIER.
The Indians appear friendly but cannot
be trusted. Horses have to be herded
through the day and locked up in the Fort
over niight. Henry rifles and revolvers are
as a rule kept in handy places. I will give
you one little item. On the 24th inst. a
fort 30 miles distant was, owing to :ome
misunderstanding, attacked by a force of
Kootenais. The garrison consisted of only
three white men and some Bloods. The
Kootenais were repulsed with a loss of three
killed. On the other side there was an In
dian killed and some squaws wounded.
Another attack being looked for a messen
ger was despatched to the next post for as
pistance, whence four men started for the
seat of war. They arrived at the scene of
action after all the fighting was over. It
so happened that one of the men while try
ing to explain to the new comers how the
fuss commenced, accidentally discharged
his rifle into an open dish of powder stand
ing beside an open 25 pound can full of the
same material. The result was a most tre
mendous explosion; two houses were totally
demolished ina flash, and yet, strange to
say, not one of the six men in the house
were seriously injured; one was blown
through the roof and escaped with a sprain
ed ankle and a little scorching, others were
buried under the ruins, yet all the injuries
in the crowd were a few sprains and the
loss of some hair by singeing. The horses
outside were more or less hurt. I cannot
say that I like the country; I would rather
be among the shadows of the pines; but
after I get more used to the " Blackfeet"
I may like to walk with them.
