MITES A Nil COMMENTS. .Senator Stanford won a barren victory when the United States Circuit Court of California decided in favor of the railroad magnates. _ tirent Fail«' latent scheme is to build a ship ( i) canal front that embryo city to the Pacific ocean. None of the present gener ation will live to sec it completed. It was a cold day when Mis Excellency, Governor Leslie, called the solons of Mon tana together In extra session. Advices from Helena slate that the Legislature will adjourn by the to'.h inst. The Woman!* Christian Temperance Union of Montana, which is holding its fourth annual convention in Dillon, is com posed of earnest workers who are active in their efforts in remedy the evils of in temperance. /interfrhr und Jour n<d of Industry was Tlte tial number of the Silt Lai published last week and lias been received at this office. It is an eight-page, forty It i« stated on authority that a statement in detail of the affairs of the Pacific Rail roads is being prepared by Major Redding ton w-itli a view to the prosecution, both criminally and civilly, of the directors of these companies, and the recovery of over $75,000,4x10, out of which tlu-y have said so have swindled the Government. The indications arc that tire Administration will push the prosecutions. An interesting celebration, purely Amer ican in character, i* to take place in I'liila delphia in tire middle of the present month, when the centennial of tiie adoption of the Constitution will be remembered with ap proprlate ceremonies. The adoption of our Constitution was an event in tiie his tory our country of tiie greatest interest and importance, as it marked the abandon ment byr (lie leading statesmen of the court try of the idea of attempting to solve the problem of providing a constitutional form of government for the United -States on the basis of a league. When the difficul ties and discouragements in the way of the framers of the Constitution are considered their great and lasting work should be duly honored by the American people. The Pioneers' Association of Montana, at its annual meeting held in Helena last week,'elected the following officers for the ensuing year; President, Frank H. Moody, of Missoula. Vice Presidents—Joe A. Ih uw ue, of Beaverhead; T. P. Collins, of Choteau; John A. Guy, of Caster: Con Kohrs, ol l>cer Lodge; Granville Stuart, ot Fergus ; J. X. Itcidlcr, of Dawson: G. Kratt/.er, of Gallatin ; John A. Culver, of Jefferson; \V. A. English, of Lewis and Clarke; Alex. Mctzel, ol Madison; Henry Walley, of Meagher; A. S. Ittake. of Mis soula, and W. V. Pemberton, ot Silver Dow. James W. Sanders was elected Re cording Secretary; Cornelius Hedge*. Cot responding Secretary ; and S. T. Hauser. Treasurer. Twenty new member- were ui mit ted to membership. The largest bronze casting er made in tills country, say s the N. Y /-*,»/ •>.' and \feram, was cast at a foundry in this citx last week. It is a huge Buffalohead, mod eled by Edward Kemeys, Jr., which i* to be placed over the east portal of the Union Pacific railroad bridge over tlu- Mi-somi river, between Council P.iuiVs and Omaha. There will be more poetry clinging to tins memorial of Great Plains life than attach column papet, devoted to Utah and its re sources—agricultural, mineral, stock rais ing and manufacturing. The paper is to liavc a guaranteed circulation of 3,000 co pies, and is evidently a "huoiit paper" tor tliat territory. es to tiie average railroad bridge decoration. To old-timers It xviit recall tiie days in the early liistory of the road when the trains thundered past far-stretching herds of hi son, and cockney sportsmen fired from ear windows and platforms into tlte great stu pid beasts. The plains are there, and the 'rain* and Hid passengers, who only lack opportunity to exhibit tiie satne old style sf abominable cruelty. but one may pass and repass from East to West and see no sign of bison save the mounted heads which ornament some of the stations, and this bron/e cast over the Missouri bridge ■ ........ . ! KXTltA XINSION 1II l; fiOvr.KNo 11 s MKSSAt.l: . The extra —and, in u.at r. rc'i'cc:-, cx traordinarv—session of tin Lcgi'krivc As ! sctnbly <<! Montana lia« I ci t-u in 'C"ion fur several da\ s. It Ojicned wi ill] a mi! atteiid 1 ance of member' and i' ■ puirking on the ! subjects for which it was . called together. It i' noticed, in both Hof -e and Council. that some of the old bill - ! hat faileii t,> t e coiiic hrws I a ~ t winter have been ic. ! i ml i.c cd. The member.-, probable, took tin* dc fund bills to tbeir respective bornes, rim! when sumnioneil together again they :t— surrccted t!icm, much after tire tashion of warming up cold li.'i-h a* a substitute for bosh food. This i- r egarded pardon- ! l rest I ioocj. ini' i' icgaiuvn j'.""'"' j able for a legislator will cling to ,t pel bill j I with a devotion and affection like that of a I mother to her first habe. However, the extraordinary session lias not developed j sufficiently yet to indicate how legislation will shape. The the United State; ■'extra" is running, and as ! Government has to pay j the expenses it is fondly hoped that Mon- j tanians will not be out and injured when j the session is brought to a close. His Excellency, Governor Leslie. a> duty bound, transmitted Itis message the Legislature, which was read and iias j been published in our daily cotctnporaries. It is a long-winded document, built in tol erably grammatical shape, destitute of "Kentucky diction," and presents recom mendations, suggestions and statistics that may prove interesting to readers r Trihuxe. Its salient points will be d cd of sufficient interest to alimle to. Hi Excellency opens by reminding our legis the j •in- ! lators that they had been called together ; with tim consent and approval of the Pres ident ot the United States, ami the open- ! iug paragraph closes with a short lecture i on laws that should be clear, direct and j withou' ambiguity or doubtful construe- ' tion. lie next refers to the law relating [ to t | u . assessment.and lev v . .1 ta xe«. w hu I. ! , , , , - . . ,1 was passed at last slut - ■ — — 1 session, and ' points out at great length the ambiguities | ivhts ' pl * j|, e j avv an j that such amendt be ma j t . to it as w »| free the law of all j j ou bt and confusion. The Governor, evi [ dei|tk „ympathizing with the Countv ( ( ;i erhN s |,ows Uiat that class of salaried j officials toil without adequate reco npense under some of the sections of the objec tionable revenue law, and hits Excellency feels satisfied that there i* a great amount of labor imposed on the clerks which can be of very little practical good to the pub- j lie. Other provisions of the new revenue law* ate open to examination and improve ment. The Governor then examines the liquor license law and finds fault with the law because it discriminates between the liquor dealer who sells by tiie drink und the one who sells by the gallon. The Gov ernor bucks indirectly at the decision of the United States Supreme Court deciding the license on commercial travelers and drummers unconstitutional, and while lie acquiesces in the decision of the courts he believes that the Montana law is constitu tional and lie would have the Territory car ry our law up to the Supreme Court of the United States for investigation and deci sion. Passing along . in tiie message we find much space devoted to the bounty law, and particularly that portion relating to bounty on ground squirrels, or as the little animal* arc more vulgarly called "ground rats." I lis Excellency don't like ground squirrels, either for food or bounty pur poses, and he proceeds to cipher out that if tlii* law remains in force that it will break the Territory of Montana, showing that over $48,000 lias been paid out this year for squirrel bounties. The Governor appears to have made the "rat question" one of special study. As tiie ground sqir -1 rels "hunted their holes" ten days earlier j this year than usual it may have been caused ! by this special session being called for their ; protection, but the Governor does not men- ; tion this tact. Dropping the bounty law the , Governor discusses the present law gov- ! erning our system of caring for the insane i people ot the lerritory. He recommends that a law be passed making provision for the pm clu'e ot suitable grounds and tiie erection thereon of asylum buildings, for, j to quote the Governor — "there i> nothing ! in all the charms ot American civilization more noble, and that shines a, a brighter i st;:. Him the lavish hand with which States, cities, towns and communities all ' over this country , teeming with its mil-i lions ot people, have given money, erected : buildings, supplied comforts, and purchav ed the wry highest order of medical skill and nursing for those, our suffering broth ers and sisters. I rue, alwavs provided 1 that there is no "jots in legislation on the subject. The next paragraph in the mes advising tiie enactment of a stringent ! * aw ,or the punishment of persons who en j S a S c in foul and murderous attempts to de ra 'l al 'd wreck running railroad trains in j Territory will meet with cordial appro ; vaI ! a,u i t* 11 -' Governor's furtlter reconnue»; that a law be specially enacted for punishing burner* of good and timely, and i punishment of person °pcn or displace a railroad switch, or wlto ! -1 it should include the! >ns who maliciously place on any railroad track obstructions whereby a train may be derailed or in any wise obstructed.

Such is the substance of Governor Le*- j lie's maiden Montana message. It is not. u brilliant document or one that will stun the average Montanian with its rccommen Jutions, or paralyze a mountain people with its get up. It does not make a forcible plea for calling an extra session or offer ex cuses that will be recognized as sufficient. ()ne admission, that ot no pat for the men hers, is hopeful that, the session will be very short and sweet Dur legislators do not receive big pay. When they have to trust Uncle Sam lot their wages and borrow money to pav tbeir board bills it will not ; take them long to shake the dust ot the j capital from their shoes and return to their 1 respective constituents, where the*, will j m\e excellent opportunities to ram ready j noney enough to pay tbeir hoard fills, Taking this financial view ot the matter it i» »ale to prtdiet that the extra se ssion will not last long or be prexiuetivv ot measures injurious to the people. No money means a short session. " AN ANNEXAT! »> SCHEME J Our Idaho neighbor* to make a »•<* for the annexation scheme of the Panhandle of that Territory to Montana have started a little scheme of their own to gobble up a portion of this Territory in payment of the Panhandle piece. Their annexation scheme is just a little chet-kv, even for Idaho men. The schemers or annexationists met the other day at -Sho shone and belli a conference over the mat ter, the result of which is briefly told by telegraph : "Senator liear-st, with Governor Steven son ar.d Delegate Dubois, recently held a conference at Shoshone regarding the pro posed enlargement of the boundaries of Idaho with reference to Stutehood, which Idaho expects to soot» demand with the other Terriloi ies. Senator Stewart'» move to annex Nevada to Idaho entirely col lapsed at the conference. It was suggest ed that the Idaho line he extended north w ard through Montana so as to take in the coui ties of Beaverhead and Missoula." The proposition suggested at the Slut shone conference is an exceedingly moder ate and modest otic. They only want a small slice of Montana, and just why they did not extend their proposed line eastward so a* to take in Butte .amt Helena remains to be explainer). Modesty must have been their motive for lenving out tiie populous part of Montana. Tlte Idaho scheme is only in its incipient stages, hut if it should develop into live proportions the people of Beaverhead and Missoula counties will he heard from in tio unmistakable manner.
