Bickford and Cole Roasted By Re presentative Whiteside For Alleged Jobbery. Representative Whiteside of the capitol investigating committee made a minority report to the House on Tuesday that produced the sensa tion of tihe session. Te stated that in reaching the. conclusions in his report lihe did not, ...... !-4 -tr \, ., ^ i C..lb mitted to the commit'. .r gille hc lie is in turn charged b, ~ke a*v it jority of the invcstigating committee, and also by tihe Anaconda Standard, as being entirely subject to the influence of Sam Word, A. J. David son and others who were opposed to the selection of the present capitol site, in fact Word is generally recog nized as the author of the report. Among other things lie says: There has been expended by the board since its creation the sum of forty-nine thousand six hundred and twenty eight dollars and twenty one cents ($490,28.21), and to show for this expenditure tile state has a partial set of plans of very doubtful utility and a small hole in tihe ground on the proposed site. Of the sum expended, four thous and five hundred and twenty-three dollars and eighty cents ($4,523.80.) has been paid to four members of the board for per diem and milage, the governor, as chairman, receiving no extra compensation. With two members of the board, viz.: C. E. Cole and W. M. [,ick fork, 1. have no hesitation in saying that the chief motive that actuated themr was a dir'ect financial considera tion. Corninissioner Flowerree's name was not signed to thliscontract, and the record shows lie voted against its adoption. In the early part of 1896 the board advertised to receive competitive plans for a state capitol building and in connection therewith they issued rules and regulations to govern the submission of plans and to define the terms and conditions upon which prices and payments should be made to the successful architects, the con ditions relating to prices and pay ments were as follows: To the architect whose plans should be adopted, for tlhe building, 5 per cent. on the first live hundred thousand dollars exlcnded, and four per cent. on all further amounts ex pended on the building. To the winner of second price, fif teen hundred dollars. To the winner of third prize, one, thousand dollars. To the winner of tihe fourth prize, five hnndred dollars. Under these rules and regulations, every architect entering upon the competition to furnish plans for the capitol building could only expect payment of the fee for first prize up on the money actually expended up on the building, yet in plain viola tion of tihe rule in lines 16 and 17, in page 4, the board made a contract with George i. Mann which binds the state to pay seven-tenths of the full fee of forty-five thousand dol lars before a single dollar is expended on the building. They bind the state to pay him a further price of five thousand dollars if the building is constructed within the limit of cost ($1,000,000), and then lest by some inadvertence the state should escape this payment, the contract further provides that the architect, if necessary, shall cut down the plans until the cost shall come with in one million dollars. There is a further provision inserted in the con tract that to get this bonus of five thousand dollars, the building must )be constructed within four years, but this provision amounts to noth ing, for any delay caused by the coim mission or any change in the plan would deprive the state of the bene fits of this proviso. In negotiating with the different architects, the scheme was to control not only the selection of the plans, ibut the letting or the contract for construction as well, for the amount that could be made out of the plans was entirely inadequate to satisfy the ambitions of the commissioners who were in on the deal. The con tract was to be controlled by the ar chitect, that is, it was to go to the party who stood in with him. The contractor was to purchase certain stone quarries and other prolperty of nominal value through E. D. Edgerton, for-the sum of one hundred and twenty thousand dol lars ($120,000), to be paid as follows: Fifteen per cent. of each payment Y received on the capitol building was c to be paid on this contract until the f full one hundred and twenty thous and dollars should be paid, when the certified check of ten thousand dol was to be returned to the contractor, thernoney thus paid to E. D. Edger ton, except a small sum for the real value of the property, was for the benciit of the capitol commissioners who were in the deal, and on their part, the commissioners contracted and agreed that the building should not be made to cost, outside of ex tras, more than six hundred and thirty thousand dollars ($630,000), e but this was by no means to be the g limit of revenue that the gentlemen intended to derive from the con S struction of the building. In order that the firms of persons who should furnish materials or supplies to the contractor, should contribute their proper percentage to members-of the commission, Mr. wV. II. Iri0son of Mlissoula was to be appointed super intendent of construction to look after this part of the programme. Many social and business confer ences were held between N r. Mann i and members of the commission. A\ trio to the National park was taken by Mr. Mann and some of the parties interested, and in the pure air of the nation's wonderland, the mirage of Montana's capitol as designed by Mr. Mann was seen by the commission, and the deal was closed at figures somewhat more advantageous to the commissioners. So far as carried out, the scheme worked all right, but in the end, Messrs. Cole and Bickford must have met disaster, for while they were working the peo ple of Montana, Mr. George II. Mann was working them. The building planned to cost one million dollars n.d which they had agreed to cut otelin to $630,000, would have cost .devedrai times this amount, and Mr. Mann's contract would have compell ed the state to pay him four per. cent on the entire cost. The warrants drawn to pay Mr. Mann $22,500 were issued in fraud of the people of the state, and should not be recognized as a valid claim against the capitol building fund. The balance of $9,000 claimed by Mr. Mann should not be paid, as the con tract was secured by fraud, and is invalid for the reason that it does not reserve to tie capitol coimmis sion the righlit to annul the contract or discharge the architect, as re quired by sections 2446i and 2-147 of the political code. There is no evidence to connect Commissioners Lloyd and IFlowerree with any of the crooked transactions and Gov Rickard's connection seems to have been because his judgement was badly warped or entirely con seumed by his political ambitions. After the regular meeting of the capitol commission held on Jan. 13 last, a'nother meeting of certain members of the commission was held in Dr. Cole's ofllice, to which (Gov ernor Smith was not incited. At this meeting ways and nimeans of so curing the rethention of the piresent commission in oflice and the erection of a million-dollar building was dis cussed. It was decided to let Gov ernor Smith in on the steal, if he would accept, and his shair was fixed at $25,000. If the business of the state is to be left in tie hands of these inconscion able scoundrels, a receiver might as well be appointed at once to take charge of the affairs of the state. Dr. Cole and Wl. M. Bickford, the commissioners particularly mention ed as being requent to their trust, emphatically deny the allegations of tlhe sensational report and9 threaten legal measures notwithstanding tihe supposed immunity as a privileged report. The other members of the committee led by Chairman lRamsey declare there is no foundation what ever for such a report and are indig nant that it should be made without first being submitted to them. To Survey the Boundary. Washington, Feb. 25.-The senate I appropriation comnittee has co1m pleted its work on the civil sundryi bill and provided $7,500 for surveying the boundary line between Montana and Idaho, the 30t.h meridian, and the British boundary. The survey is to be executed under the supervision of the directory of the geological sur vey. Copies of the report will be filed in the surveyor generals' ollice of Montana and Idahllo. The bill car ries $1.0,000 for a road along the east line of the Yellowstone Park forest, along Ishawood river and across the forest reserve south of Yellowstone lake. The committee also amended the sundry bill by providing that $20,000 of the $100,000 carried by the house bill for the Helena public building for the next fiscal year may be spent in securing additional land for tllhe site. It also authorizes the presentation of three bison heads taken from animals killed by poach ers in the Yellowstone park to the National museum.

San Francisco, Feb. 25.-The brig Percy Edwards cleared today for Taliti, and on her goes the United Brotherhood of the South Sea Islands. The brig goes to Tahiti and fromi that port will sail wherever the fancy. of those on board dictates. The ex pedition was, brouelth about by tlhe publication in a local paper of a; story to the effect tlhat on St. John's island in the South Seas were a number :f dusky women who were pining for husbands. All the men have been killed in war and the women are lonely. A company was organized in this city to go to the relief of the - dusky damsels and on board the Ed 1 wards are 7 mnert who sigh for the tropical climo and the easy life in s the South Seas. it hias since devel r oped that the Adauiless Eden story 1 was a myth, but the comrpany organ 1 ized here determined to gsi some - place.

[-ill has at last gotten absolute con- t( rol of the Northern Pacific, in spite u A the many telegralphic aictciunts to tt The conitrary. This uniquailified statement is made ulpon absolute c knowledge and no hearsay comments f( ,r street rumors., It coms from an si individual whose integrity is uinques- a tionable and who is in a position to p know whereof lie speaks. While it p is impossible to divulge tthe name of p this individual it is snullcient to say 0 lie is closely connected with the c present management ,of the North- t rn Pacificand knows at all times u what transpires. An attlemlpt is be- v ing made to keep the fact that Ir.

JThe Northernl li'acilie :llicial says there is but one way to defeat this comisolidation, (and hIit is by getting the liurlinlgton road to build through Montlana and on to the I coast and buck the two roads by coimpetition. iiill is not liked tlhroughout the < west and the ,Northern Pacific alnd liurlington systems are used by shil) pers when it is possibsle.

A mneeting of the I leading mien of the 1 lurlington has been called to maide the necessary arran-gement for the extending of. t1he lIlurlington road and they will meet, in lIutte on March 2.
