Watterson's occupation's gone. -The bill extending suffrage to women in Oregon was lost on its third reading in Assembly 461 to 13. So much for Wehlfoot gallantry. -The American Electrical Society, for the advancement of the members in the knowledge of electricity was organized in Chicago on Wednesday with Anson Stager, President. Whether it is in opposition to the Brooklyn Plymouth Magnet ic Associa tion or not, is not stated. -The Poem of Mrs. Taylor, Bannack, written for the NEW NORTrI-WEST and pubhshed in this issue, is her finest contri bution to the press and its lcal character entitles it to the kindest appreciation. There is genuine poetic thought and ex pression in it, and if not without flaw is yet a gem of much merit. -A repair corps to put in good order the W. U. Telegraph Line from Ogden to Helena is now at the former place purchasing poles and making ready for a complete overhaul ing of the poles. The line seems to have had intimations of it and is on its good behavior this week for the first time for several issues. -As will be seen by the telegrams there has been an official re-canvass of the votes for State Senator in. the First District of Indiana, reversing the former count. Bax ter evidently had no Callaway on that Board. There are canvassing officers who are stupid enough to count the vote as it was cast by the electors. But they seem to lack the "dignity " and "responsibility" of Secretaries of Territories. -" Cast bread upon the waters and it will return to you after many days" is being verified in religious circles. China, to which America has been for a century or so sending Christian missionaries responds by sending Wong Chin Foo as a missionary to this country and this oriental priest has proclaimed boldly, intelligently and in good English the doctrines of Confucius to a Boston audience in the Parker Memorial Hall. Haste still pays haste, and leisure answers leisure, Like will quit like, and Measure still for Measure. -The Missoulian gives the Mondtanian a little healthy talk on the suggestion of the latter that the publishers of the Helena and West Side papers were laying themselves liable to libel suits, $5,000 fine and incar i eration in jail for six months for libelling the Governor and Secretary. What's the use, Brother Turk? Isn't it evident from the labor we have had lately in instructing Bro. Blake in ordinary law points that he does not know the legal difference between a case of libel and a case of Vinegar Bitters? We publish facts and will stand all conse quences. -Mormondom is excited now over an alleged assault on United States Marshal Maxwell by hirelings of Brigham Young. It appears a subpEona was issued from the District Court for Brigham. A Deputy was sent to serve it and refused admittance. Maxwell then went unarmea ana it is starea by the Gentiles was rudely ejected and maltreated by lesser adherents of Young while prominent dignitaries encouraged and approved the outrage. The Mormons say Brigham was quite sick and unable to see company, that Maxwell was trying to force ingress to his room, and was merely pushed back by a small young man, and fell.. The Mormon story lacks spissitude. The assailants have been arrested and held to bail. -The Montanian announces its intention to publish a BLACK LIST of persons who have ordered their subscriptions discontin ued and refused to pay arrears. Although 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 greater ones, who shall say it is not just? Self preservation is the first law of nature. nel preservatlon is the nrst law of nature. -The New York Herald having diverted into newspaper discussion the controversy as to whether Bacon or Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare's plays and having published volumesof argument from Professor Hinun Corson, of Cornell University; Professor O'Leary, of Manhattan College; Professor John" S.

Owens, Mr. Wheeler, Mr. Daniel Dou~ghkrt, Mayor Havemeyer, and others, finally coniders the arguments exhausted, and in the issue of October 11th sums up the case. ",T... this time we hbae declined to interpolate our own opinioniupon the authorship; but now, in elolIag the discussion, afteryielding ample time and space to those who wished to take asrt in it, we mut ary that the . welght f therstimeuls irtogeths, against the dbs4iU&de foe BlaesiOln -t ig.new bbIM' sa4nceditini b ltott Honen. # q , al~ ilteik th controy ý tp,inti ri 4s dad of t hlaypand hfaet _'M It h 'iM A"IL EXECUTIVE CLEXENCY. 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. BOZEXAN NEWSPAPERS. 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 Nowrn-Warr being cirumstanoedt to sup ply the Courtfr with anercellet press, the type formerly used in the publiioien of this paper and~theigreat pe hiap ft~ mterial necessary to re-issues, which was his week shipped by express and freight to - mat..

"i w r^ý Y "ý 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 ian, Oct. 13ih. 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 awhile-there was a volume published some years ago. -That phrase, "The Silent Majority," was a happy thought: But suppose the women's suffrage people should claim it what an appropriate misnomer it would be. FROM THE "NORTH COUNTRIE." A Missoulian's Impressions at " Whoop Up." 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 IIAMILTON. 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 present attractions. 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. HEan MAJETY'B MOUtNTED POLICE. The Masitoba Mounted Pollce,.a force of 150 m fnder command of Major'McLeod, enc.diped on Belly River a short distance below here last night.

The site selected for the Assay Office, ac cording to letters received by Saturday's mail, is the ground cornor of Broadway and Warren. The lot fronts on the former street 150 feet and on the latter 100 feet, and has a 12-feet alley in rear. It is one of the most sightly and at the same time one the of most central locations that could have been selected in the city. John Westhall shot and mortally wounded S. W. Hall, in Mitchell gulch, 12 miles from Helena, on Tuesday. He died early on Wednesday. The occasion was a dispute about a ditch. The Diamond " R" Company are build ing three large flat boats to ship quartz down the river. !Prom the Independent. We learn that the man Dodson, who shot and severely wounded John Toombs at Canon Ferry, a few weeks ago, in a dispute about some cattle, died, as is supposed, of remorse at the cowardly act. James Casley, in working in a drift in Oregon Gulch, had his neck and arm broken by a falling cap. Mr. D. Pattee of Missoula sold 9000 lbs. of "the finest onions we ever saw" in Helena at 7, to 8 c. per pound. Hugh Kirkendall has returned from Nevada. Guthrie & Norris, o[ the Railroad Meat Market, have bought one thousand live hogs-seven hundred from Missoula and three hundred from Gallatin county. The May Lowry, which left Bismarck on the 27th of August, with one hundred and thirty tons of freight, left forty tons at Buford (of which there were 200 stoves for Kinuna and Jack), twenty tons at Fort Peck, and landed seventy tons at Carroll on the 8th inst. Blackfoot and New Chicago are building new school houses. The first will cost $800, pricipally subscription money. The amount of quartz sold in Helena during the past six months has placed over $150,000 in circulation. It is thought the amount will reach half a million next year. Virginia City Items. From the M7ontanian, Oct. 15. Mr. A. W. Tanner reports that several claims on the Jefferson are paying. The machinery recently placed upon the Red Blufflode, Lower Hot Springs District, by A. II. Mallory, drains the mine with ease. At the depth of 120 feet the vein is six feet wide. Olds, Blivens & Co., have made a hole in the Blivens lode, same dis trict, which is 80 feet deep. George D. Thomas of Gallatin City in forms us that there are four flour mills in Gallatin county. In 1872 they produced 32,000 barrels of flour. lie estimates they will yield this year only one-fourth that amount, 8,000 barrels. The loss is the re sult of the ravages of grasshoppers in Gal latin county. The Julia Holmes, in Rochester, yielded to Dubrey and Dunn (4 ounces of gold re tort, which was duly received by Elling on the 13th. IHon. Milo Courtwright has sold out his mining property in Rochester, and is mak ing arrangements to operate in a quartz lode near Sheridan, in company with John Allebaugh. From the Miadisonian, Oct. 17. The Catholic Church has just been plas tered, and inside its appearance is attract ive. We doubt whether there has ever been a neater or more substantial job of plaster ing put on in the Territory. It is a credit to the workman, Mr. J. A. Slaven, who put on three hundred yards in five days. The new mill or' Messrs. Cisler, Zinn & Elling, at Broad Gauge City is completed. It was started up on Wednesday last, and is said to be workingtoacharm. Look out for bricks. LewisFullhart brought up from Silver Star, on Wednesday last, 137 ounces of gold retort. It was taken from twenty-four tons of quartz from Messrs. Fulhart & Seigchrist's "First Chance" Lode, run in the Tripp & Ainslie mill. Five and three quarter ounces to the ton is good enouglh. There is more of the same kind in the First Chavce, and the proprietors are prepared to take it out. Missoula Items. From the Missoulian, Oct. 21. Cortes Goff puts in an 18-pound turnip and Capt. C. P. Higgins a 30~-pound cauli flower as specimen products of Missoula. The weather continues splendid, and no frost as yet has visited this favored locality. Sheriff Marion and family departed last Thursday for Flathead Lake, where they take up their residence. Missoulians contemplate preparing a race track. Keney's thresher shells out 175 bushels of oats per hour. Bitter Root farmers are holding wheat at $1.00 and oats at 50 cts. per bushel. The Fort Owen and Lafontaine mills are selling flour at $3.00 to $3.50 per 100 tbs. A Rough Old Row. BROOKLYN, October 22.-This morning Albert Crocker and Charles Shaw, two delegates to the Democratic City Conven tion, and several other politicians while in a state of intoxication, entered an- Italian barber shop kept by one Dombraggio and proceeded to demolish the furnitur6 etc. When interfered with'b tt proprietor and assistant they set upon them.

An Official Re-Canvass in Indiana; RICHMOND, Ind., Oct. 21.-A recount of the votes in the First District changes the former official returns. Five votes are added to Jeflries' count by an error of the tallying seeets ana two that were originally thrown out. This elects Jeffries to the State Senate over Baxter by 1 majority. The Indiana Election CHICAco, October 17.-An Indianapolis special to the Inter-Ocean concedes a Dem ocratic victory, and a majority in the Leg islature of six on joint ballot, thus insuring the election of a Democratic Senator in place of Pratt. It is generally understood that Hon. Jas. M. MacDonald will be se lected to that place. Fight in the Black Hills. CHICAGo, October 17.-A Yankton dis patch says a party of seven who left there ten days ago for the Black Hills, were at tacked while in camp at the mouth of the Little Platte by a party of Brule Sioux, who killed two and wounded three of the party, but were finally repulsed with ten killed and wounded. The party returned to Yankton. "Ca..-- -- The Election m Dakota. YANKTON, (Da.), October 14.-There is no possibility of getting full returns for a day or two. The returns so far received justify the report forwarded last night that Kidder (Rep.) will have a majority of from 10,000 to 20,000 votes. Delegate Cannon and his Wives. SALT LAKE, October 14,-It is reported that Apostle George Q. Cannon, learning surreptitiously that his numerous wives were supnoed as witnesses before the Grand Ju ry, removed them from the city before the arrival of the officers. They cannot be found.

A crauberryv marsh of 2,500 acres, near New Washington, Crawford county, is. on fire, and great excitement prevails. Two thousand acres of timberland is on fire five miles west of Fort Wayne, Ind., and it is feared it will reach the city. A heavy gale in the north of England and Scotland resulted in much loss of life and shipping, and interruption of railroad travel. The re-union of the Army of the James was held in New York Wednesday. A resolution to the effect that General Fitz John Porter had been unjustly treated and the case should be re-opened was tabled. Gen. A. H. Terry was elected President for the next three years. The next meeting will be held at Philadelphia in 1876. It is stated President Grantis tired of the third term twaddle, and will disclaim all intent of being a candidate again even if nominated. Information is had the White House can r didate for 1876 will be Washburne, of Illi nois, for the first place, and Speaker Blaine r for Vice President. It is understood that Blaine will consent to take the second place. Engineer Goodwin and some some rail. road employees got up a little railroad re bellion at Lake station, Ind., last Tuesday. A company of 120 men armed with breech loaders and Gatling guns, sent out by Gov ernor Hendricks, settled it. The Grant Locomotive works, Patterson, N. J., are in trouble. They were building 50 engines for the Russian government and have been unable to fultill. Unless the Russian government is lenient they will go to the wall.
