WEDNESDAY, 11AR(.'I 3, 1897
Cuban matters reached an acute
stage in the senate last week and it
was only owing to the futility of at
tempting radical measures during
the remaining few days of the Cleve
land administration that prevented a
conilict between the senate and the
Tlhe state department had made a
request that the senate committee
on foreign relations do not press its
resolution for the immediate release
of General Julio Sanguilly fronm a
Spanish prison in Cuba. It appeared
from the statement of the secretary
of state chat the Spanish government
was willing to release Sanguilly at
any time lhe would withdraw his ap
peal. For Sanguilly to do this
would be an acknowledgement of
guilt and an abandonment of any
claims against the Spanish govern
ment for damages. The committee
therefor decided to press considera
tion of the resolution.
In the discussion Allen saild,
"American citizens 1were daily beingm
arrested in Cuba and thrown into j
prison witioutt trial. It seemed to
be the disposition to punish every
American citizen in Cuba. It was a
story full of barbarity and atrocity."
Morgan scored the administration
in his usual vigorous style for its in
Daniel followed Morgan and he
said: "Our representative in Cuba
has been arrogantly insulted by
Spanish authorities. It has been
told by high Spanish authorities the
presentation of the Sanguilly case
was a disgrace to the United States
to the American Ilag. If the
the United States had been
ress that insult it would

Sanguilly's counsel withdrew his
appeal and Sanguilly was immediately
released, having been pardoned when
ie had never committed a crime.
General, Lee, the United States
Consul-General, tlhreatened to resign
unless the administration would sup
port him with war ships in his en
deavor to protect American citizens.
Sanguilly is now in this country
and speaks in the warmest terms of
General Lee, but says that if some
thing is not clone at once Scott, the
Competitor crew, and other Ameri

This Cuban question is a most dis
agreeable legacy that Cleveland will
leave to McKinley, but if it is not
disposed of satisfactorily to the mass
of the American people within a few
hours of his inauguration we will
miss our guess. McKinley's mode of
dealing with Spain may not be satis
factory to certain commercial inter
ests that place the almighty dollar
above national honor, but Teller's
words, "I would make every power
on earth respect American citizen
ship if it took all the guns and men
in the country," will find an echo in
the hearts of the whole people, whose
views are entitled to respect. His
hands will be upheld in the rigorous
policy'ontlined by Secretary Sherman,
who says that a warship will be im
imediatly dispatched to Cuba to pro
tect Amercan citizens.
Speakirng of the recent proclama
tLion of rcsident Cleveland in re
gard to forest reserves Senator Carter
says thie presidoent might as well
have fenced off the whole state of
Montana as a forest reservation, as to
witiidraw from entry the vast tract
oif 3,000,000 acres wi'thout consulting
.te people of ,the state. The presi
dent did not confer with any of the
senators or members from any of the
states affected aiid the isrst th~ey knew
of it was the publication .of the
boundaries of the reservations.
The forest reserves under Presideo.t
Cleveland's proclsamatisn are as fol
,ows: Flathead reserve in Montana,
.1,382,400 aicres;-Lewis and Clarkejre
serve,. in Mioutana, .2,436,080; Priest
River reserve, in Idalho and Wash
ton, 645,10 acresr; :itter ioot re
serve, in Montana and Idaho, $4,174,
200 acres; Washiington reserve, in
;Washington, 3,540,247 acres; Olympic
reserve, in Washington, 2,188,800
acres; Mount Rainier reserve, in
Washington, 2,234,888 acres.
As sootn as the procltillaalO io l was f
issued Senators .Mantle and Carter l
telegraphed the legislal ure at Helena
to plrotest agaillst suclrh a w\'aiton dis- r
regard of the interests of our state. A
A joint resolution to that effect was L
passed within a few lionrs after re- 1
ceipt of the -telegram and wired to
W.Vlingiton. i
The iimatter anle upl in the senate t
on an amilendmellllnt offered by Clark i
anid designed to counteract the presi
dent's order. lie ,:riticized the
president's action as arbitrary and as t
i most seriouls blow aimed at the n
western country. Carter also criti
cized the president's order as hasty 1
and in total disregard to best inter- s
ests: towns, villages, imills and mines t
beingi indescriminately included in
thel folrest reservatiollns. Cannon,
Pottigre, W ilson, lDubois and Mlan
tie also spoke in criticism and the
amendment unanimiously adopted.
It is as Iollows: ",And all lands in
the states of Wyonintg, Ctah, Colo
ratio, Montana, Idaho, Washlington
and California set, al)lt and reserved
1y executive orders and proclaina
tions of leb. 22, 1897, arl hereby re
stored to tle public donmain and sub
ject to settlement, occupancy and
entry under the land laws of the
f United Stiates the same as if said ex
ecutive orders and proclamation had
not been made.''
Clevelandl, in the closing days of
his administration, seemso o be try
Ilug to make thing as disagreeable all
around as possible. The Washing

The action of thle powers in fore

and abandon theoChristians on that
island to the tender mercies of the
TuFrk, sheds considerable light upon
the action of these sate powers in
permitting the Armenian massacres.

ranmgement arliived at as to the parti

The Govcrnor I'resent and Mllakes an
Interesting Talik.
The session of MOniltama filuit grow
ers concluded last Friday in Missoula
was a most successful one in every
respect, and tihe added interest
shown denotes a healthy condition of
affairs in connection with what is
destined to be one of our state's
growing industries. The pallpers read
all showed a high degree of excellence
that indicated that the writers were
all familiar with their subjects.
Governor Smith was present and
made an address at the evening ses
sion of the last day. Among other
things lihe said:
"I was greatly impressed this af
ternoon by the line display of fruit
that I saw and by tile interest that
was manifested at tlhe meeting then
and in the session here tiis evening.
I don't believe thant when the people
engaged in the industry that you re
present that you realized tile good
they were doing for ouir great comn
monwealth. You are pioneers in lian
industry that will add to the great
ness of Montana. When our great
mines are exhausted, when they
have yielded up their wealth and it
has been dissapated over the world,
the orchards of tihe Hitter Root will
be famous for their line fruit. There
is more than mere dollars aind cents
in what you are doing. We cannot
overestimate the value of the services
that you are now rendering in add
iug to the diversity of the resources
of this state. People who are de
pendent upon but one industry can
not accomplish a half of what can be
done by a people who have a diversi
ty of industries. So long as we de
pend upon our mines alone Montana
will stand before the world solely as
a mining stllate. I do not meani tc
detract froln the greatness of out
mines. There is no state that standh
like Montana. What state is there
of less than 200,000 people that can
show products in a year amounting tc
$(0,000,000, . Yet that is the recore
of Montana for the year 1890, and it
is the mines tihat lhave made this re
cord possible and the state has beer
but scratched over. We have more
than we know of. We have all of
the valuable minerals.--coal, lead,
copper, silver, gold and even precious
stones. But if we are dependant
solely upon this mineral Nealth we
shall not -accomplish all that we
ou1?1t itlh our vWoinderftilloy di\vrsi
tied reil ' rOes."

Salem. Ore., Feb. 2ti.-Gov. Lord
was asked today whetlier lie would
cail Ia special session of the legisla
ture in the event of the failure of the
house to secure an organization, lie
said: "'Your inquiry touches a point
that I have not reached in my calcu
lations. I have been anxious that
the legislature effect an organi
zation and proceed to matters of leg
islation and I have been ready when
ollicially notilied to co-operate with
the legislature in giving the people
remedial legislation. The organiza
tion of tlie legislature is a mlatter
that rests wil th il mnembers of the
legislature and not with the execu
tive department. If the legislature
should fail to organize under exist
ing conditions wien .crying needs of
the state are so well understood and
demanded by the interests of the
)public it would lie due [to the exist
ence of caunses that would seem to
make it useless to call the legislature
together for sonme tinme if at all."
Flouring Mills Blurned.

flouring mills at Spring 11111, in this

$20,000 and the latter $5,000, with a
tofai insurance on the plant of only
