For the third time in its existence the Eighth legislative assembly will meet on Tuesday of the present week. It first met on January 5th last and remained in session the constitutional limit of 60 days, adjourning on March 6. It next met in extraordinary ses sion, at the call of Governor Toole, on May 26, the purpose of its meeting, as stated in the official call, being to provide ways and means for a suitable Montana exhibit at the St. Louis ex position. □ There are old observers who predict that the session will ruu along until the time when the members will want to go back home for Christmas. It re maius to be seeu what business will be cut out for the session. If thus far any member has the outline of a fair; trial bill in his possession, it is in his inside pocket. No measures have yet been outlined—nobody seems to know just how the. thing is to be done or what the details of auy proposed mea sure will be. It will be easy to fix up a law that will »top trials before a judge against whom prejudice is charged, but it will not he a simple matter, perhaps, to decide on what basis the change of venue to another court shall be or dered. That is, it will beeasye nough to get away from a prejudiced judge, but not so easy to arrauge for a trans fer to a court that will be acceptable to both sides iu chauge-of venue pro ceedings. On this feature there prob ably will be many suggestions and differences of opiuion. Will the governor bring other mat ters to the attention of the legislature? Contrary to a widely accepted belief he can do it if he chooses to. He has t een pressed to recommend^legislation for the creating of a railroad commis sion. A measure of that kind will not be a novel thing for the members of the preseut legislature. It is also said that the governor will be urged to recommend a bill providing for the initiative aud referendum in Montana and that he has been urged to ask for legislation providiug for the running of industrial plants by the state in case of a shut-down.

He commenced: "My young friends, as I approached the entrance to this room I noticed on the panel of the door a word eminent ly appropriate to an institution of this kind. It expresses the one thing most useful to the average man when he steps into the arena of life, it was—" Pull," shouted the boys, in a roar of laughter, and the lawyer felt that he had taken his text from the wrong side of the door. a Frightened Home. Running like mad down the street, dumping the occupants, or a hundred other accidents are every day occur rences.

Members of Legislativ* Assembly Await Suggestions from Governor Tools. H elena , Nov. 30.— Upon the eve of the meeting of the second extraordi nary session of the Eighth legislative assembly, two topics are uppermost in the minds of those who are on the ground. One is as to whether the governor will suggest for the consider ation of the legislature any further measures to that mentioned in his call for the extra session. As is well kuown, the legislature is limited in extra session to just such matters as the governor may bring to its atten tion. The governor is not limited In his suggestions to the subject or sub jects mentioned in his call. The other topic is as to the probable length of the session. It may le stated brielly that this will depend very largely on what the governor asks the legisla ture to do. Numerous suggestions have been made in regard to legisla tion other than that mentioned iu the call. Those best acquainted with Governor Toole are of the opiuion that he will do nothing to cause a pro longed session. While there is general unanimity ot opinion among the members now in town that the work of the special session should ouly take a few days, aud the opinion appears to be that the general legislation desired which they are called together to consider will be enacted, at the saine time no one ap pears to be sure the session will last ouly a week. It is recognized that uu less a bill is enacted that will pass the supreme court as to constitution ality, the session will be a failure, even though it should enact the legis lation proposed. There are 26 senators and 72 mem bers of the house of representatives. Each of them receives 20 cents mile age and $6 a day. The total salary list amounts to $588 a day, exclusive of that of the officers, attaches aud clerks, which is perhaps $200 a day additional. Each house is entitled to a sergeaut-at-arnis, a chief clerk, an engrossing clerk, a day watchman, a night watchman, a janitor, a. door' keeper, a chaplain and a batch of committee clerks. There being so lit tle business, the usual large force of clerks cau be dispensed with. llig Theater lltirncd. N ew Y ork , N ov . 30.— The historic Academy of Music, the largest theater in Brooklyn, was completely consumed today by a lire which is believed to have been caused by an explosion in the building. For a time the liâmes threatened adjoining property, and when the roof fell ill part of it struck a saloon building ad joining, but fortunately no oue was hurt, although the saloon was de stroyed. The loss was estimated :i $300,000 and there was no insurance The fire started in the scenery on tin stage of the theater, where a number of men were preparing for a testimo niai dinner to State Senator McCur ren, to be given there tonight. «tuai Miners Muslime Work. D unvkiî , Nov. 30.—Nearly two thirds of the 2.01)0 miners of the north ern Colorado coal fields resumed work today iiud it is expected that within a week or two the full force will be at work, making a regular production of 1,000 tons daily iu this district. The announcement of the settlement of the strike in the northern distrie was the cause of general rejoicing all business circles, for it means an end to the coal shortage which h threatened not, only industry in the state, but lias made necessary to many families the strictest economy possible in the use of fuel. Uivot Irrigation Syndicates. CliKYENNK, VY'yo., Nov. ."10.—There is a lively contest between Col. W. F Cody, "Buffalo Mill," and the Guern sey Canal company over a large tract of laud on Shoshone river, opposite Cody, Big Horn county.

Colonel Cody claims lie has backers who will spend $1,000,000 re claiming the land, while the other con cern claim it will spend nearly as much. Both are bringing influence to bear on the governor and doing all in their power to win their points.
