Although approved by more than two-thirds of the members of the Mon tana legislature, Governor Toole has vetoed senate bill 87. providing for a change of venue in civil cases. Thus the tactics pursued by the opposition to the bill have been made effective by the governor's action. It became apparent early in the game that the bill would easily pass, and the efforts of the opposition were directed toward delaying it so that the legislative session would expire by limitation before the bill had been in the governor's hands the five days during which he must have exercised his right to veto or allow the bill to become a law without his approval. The opposition was successful in this by methods which proved their des peration, and which the governor im pliedly approves in his message ve toing the bill. In view of this it may well be surmised that the governor's haste to veto the bill, which he makes a matter of self-laudation, would not have been apparent had the measure been placed in his hands soon enough for him to have disapproved it in time for the legislature to pass it over his veto. It has been pointed out that as an attorney in the Davis case, Gov- Toole himself lamented the non-existence of a law giving parties to civil actions relief from a biased and prejudiced judge, and the supreme court agreed with him, but there was no law to cov er the point. It seems that a change has come over the governor, and such a change that he is willing to stand in the way of remedying a condition, notoriously unfair, unjust and dis graceful to the state. It has been further shown that the relief sought to be afforded by senate bill 87 was accorded under the laws of this state prior to their codification and that it was left out of the codes through inadvertence. On the whole, the impression con veyed by the governor's veto message is not one of honesty and high pur pose. It seems, on the contrary, that Governor Toole thinks he has found an opportunity to "get even'' with somebody and has not hesitated to prostitute the prerogative of his high office to that end. HAVING A BAD EFFECT. As was anticipated, the successful effort of the W. C. T. U. and kindred organizations for the abolition ot the army canteen is having a distinctly bad effect. Instead of lessening drunkenness and debauchery among the soldiers, the abolition of the can teen has had an exactly opposite ef feet. Recently the soldiers quartered at Fort Sheridan have been very dis orderly, and their officers declare that the abolition of the canteen is respon sible for the trouble. General Otis, commander of that department, in speaking of the situation, said: "While I have received no official re port of the doings at Highwood, 1 am led to believe, from the statements made by the officers at the post, that times are lively up there. Fights and brawls are likely to occur when sol diers leave the reservation and cfVink a lot of vile whiskey. Take a lot of your citizens and even them up as sol diers and see what they would do. There are a large number of men at Fort Sheridan just now, including about 250 new recruits for the Twenty-ninth infantry regiment, which is being or ganized. New men may be relied upon to help debauchery along. "I was strongly opposed to the army canteen when it was first proposed, but the war department issued orders to establish them and the drinking places were opened. I was one of the officers detailed to study the oper ation of the canteen and note the ef feet on the men. from the investiga tion I found the canteen worked so much better than I expected it would that I was compelled to indorse it. Under the system the profits of the canteen went to buy delicacies for the men's table, so that they got the full benefit of all that was spent on beer, on the reservation. Now the men spend more, and the profits go to the own ers of private gin mills." That is testimony that can hardly be gainsaid. The result was freely predicted ,but it is hardly to be ex pected that the abolitionists will be prepared to confess their error. Agi tators against vice are seldom con trolled by reason in their work. Preju dice intolerance and sentiment are us ually the controlling factors in such crusades and facts and figures count as nothing against such forces. SALARY IS INADEQUATE. Roosevelt's Expenses Will Far Ex ceed His Pay. Theordore Roosevelt's vice-presiden tial salary of $8,000 a year will fall far short of paying his actual expens es during the next four years. The house at Seventeenth street and Rhode Island avenue, which he has just leased furnished from Bellamy Storer, minister to Spain, will cost him $0,000 annually. In other words, the new vice-president will spend all but $2,000 of each yearly stipend for mere house comforts. This meager balance the grocer alone will dispose of before a single season spent in Washington has gone into history. So you can appreciate how fortunate it is for Roosvelt that he is not depend ent for support upon his annual sal ary check from Uncle Sam's treasury. Financially speaking he has taken a great tumble within the past few months. As governor of New Yolc he received $10,000 a year and had free use of the beautifully appointed execu tive mansion at Albany. Taking all things into consideration, the gover orship netted him $8,000 more a year than will the second office of the land. Mr. Roosvelt's leasing of the Storer house indicates that he intends to shine as a social star, as Hobart and Morton did, but as other vice-presi dents within memory of the present generation did not, by a long shot. The rental asked for it would indicate that the Storer mansion is one of the show houses of Washington. But as seen from the exterior it is unpreten tious. It is of buff brick, has three stories and a basement and contains about twenty rooms. It is of modern renaissance architecture, with classin mouldings which lend a colonial effect. Although cut up into many small rooms, it is artistically decorated in side. The entrance, on the basement floor, is reached through a vault-like vestibule with grated doors. The drawing room above is luxuriously furnished, and contains many souven irs of Mr. Storers travels. The most notable apartment, however, is a ra pacious dining room, added since Mr. Storer came here ten years ago to take his seat in congress. High of ficials gathered about its broad ma hogany board will be surrounded by many rare specimens of pot tery and porcelain. In one corner a valuable bronze image of Buddah now keeps silent vigil. The room is made radiant in the day time by a large window of yellow glass over looking Seventeenth street. It was in this room where Secre tary of State Olneyr during the last Cleveland regime, inaugurated the custom—one criticised by Puritani cal minds—of giving Sunday night full di'ess dinners, a custom since in itiated throughout Washington high circles. The Storer house is familiar to Washington officials. While Olney was premier the entire diplomatic corps, in miles of gold braid and bush eis of brass buttons, flocked hither every New Year noontide to partake of a swell stand-up luncheon. Being thiis quartered six sqares from the White House, Mr. Roosvelt will not be so handy to the president as was Mr. Hobart, who occupied the present Hanna mansion on Lafayette square. APPROVED SEVERAL BILLS. Executive Places His Approval Upon a Number of Measures Passed by the Legislature. Governor Toole Saturday aproved a number of bills passed by the late leg islature. The governor is putting in all of his time examining bills and acting upon them as rapidly as possi ble. Up to 4 p. m. -the governor had not announced his conclusions upon the gambling bill, one of the import ant measures before him, and had an nounced no others. Secretary of State Hays is deluged with applications for copies of bills signed by the governor. The appli cations come from all parts of the state. As soon as possible the secretary will arrange for the printing and bind ing of the seventh session laws for the convenience of the publi#. The bills signed today up to 3 p. m. were: Senate bill No. 46—Amending the law in regard to foreign corporations. House bill No. 146—Appropriating money for the purchase by the state and auditor and the state treasurer of Burroughs' register and account machines. Senate bill No. 67—Requiring a death certificate in case of the burial of a human body. House bill No. 138—Authorizing the state auditor to purchase 10,000 maps and folders of Montana for dis tribution. Senate bill No. 25.—To prevent coal companies from dumping coal slack or dust into streams used for domestic or agricultural purposes. Senate bill No. 92—Preventing the sale and slaughter of lumpy jawed or diseased cattle. House joint resolution No. 6—Pro viding for the appointment within 30 days to examine and report upon the feasibility of adopting in Montana the Torrens system of land transfers. House bill No. 191—Amending the law in regard to general and special taxes for school purposes. Senate bill No. 101—Amending the law in regards to appeals to the su preme court so that transcripts can be either printed or typewritten, and if typewritten three clear carbon sheet copies can be filed with the clerk. Senate bill No. 25—Making the time for paying district judges monthly in stead of quarterly.—Helena Herald. PRESIDENT HILL DENIES. Deal for Control of the Crow's Nest Coal Mines Apparently About Closed. James J. Hill, of the Great Northern has just held an important conference with Robert Jaffray, William Beith, Peter Ryan and G. T. S. Lindsay, of Toronto, the principal owners of the Crow's Nest coal mines in British Columbia, says the Minneapolis Jour nal. The gentlemen arrived in St. Paul Sunday evening, and although Mr. Hill denies that their business in St. Paul is for the purpose of clos ing the deal in connection with the coal fields that will give him a vital interest in them, it is not believed that the gentlemen are in the north west on a pleasure trip, at this season of the year. An authority says that by the terms of the deal Mr. Hill is given a half million dollars worth of stock, control of the mines for a number of years and an option on sufficient stock to control the property in case he should desire to buy. Mr. Hill under the new order of things, would be compelled to con struct a line from some point on the Great Northern to the Canadian bord er where connections could be made with a line leading to the mines. The distance to the boundary is about 80 miles. In this connection, the news that the smelters at Greenwood and other towns in the Kootenai district have been shut down for lack of coal and coke is interesting. This state of things is said to be owing entirely to the control of the Crow's Nest mines passing into the hands of an American syndicate hfeaded by James J. HiP. This information is doubtless prema ture, as exorbitant freight rates on the Canadian Pacific have doubtless had more to do with the shut down than any action on the part of Mr. Hill, assuming that his syndicate has se cured the property. Major-General MacArth ur was saved from a fatal wound at Kene saw by a package of letters in his breast pocket—neither a Bible nor a York World. The New York City League for So cial service is taking a deep interest in a recently launched movement to have the city acquire property and erect on it model tenements, to be rented by the municipality. Farmers in Vermont are already be ginning to talk of the maple sugar sea son. and. conditions permitting, buck ets will soon be busy and the indus try will be on in earnest. Indications point to a large crop this year. ■fl ■ : m .v Best Shoes Made For Boys and Girls. A complete line now in. Eagle Shoe Store, Sole Agents. SEEDS! SEEDS! Wholesale.
