California decided in favor of the railroad
magnates. _

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.

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 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

States, cities, towns and communities all '
over this country , teeming with its mil-i

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.
Our Idaho neighbor* to make a »•<*
for the annexation scheme of
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.
