LIVINGSTON, M. T„ SEPT. 5, 1883.
Delegate Maginnis publishes in a late
issue of the Helena Independent a letter
addressed to his late political opponent,
Alex. C. Botkin in which he informs that
gentleman that in the matter of the pend
ing election contest he shall take no evi
dence. but is content to abide by the de
cision of Congress upon the testimony
produced by Botkin. He has learned
from ills attorney who attended the exam
inations conducted by.Mr. Botkin, that the
latter failed to impeach any single voter
and is therefore content to go before Con
gress without any testimony in rebuttal.
Marshal Botkin replies through the col
umns of the Herald in a letter which im
peaches Major Maginnis of every elect or
al offence in the catalogue, and while admit
ting liis doubts regarding the possibilities
of unseating the delegate by vote of the
House of Representatives, challenges him
to appear before a public audience to dis
cuss and decide the question of who is en
titled to be the delegate from Montana. It
is not at all probable that any such arrang
ment will be entered into by Major Ma
ginnis. No one w ould expect him to sub
mit so important a matter to the decision
of a heterogeneous audience. The law s of
the United States provide a method for
the final settlement of the question aud in
justice to his supporters, Magi ms has no
right to depart therefrom for a decision.
With all due respect for the two gentlemen
we cannot but consider it in poor taste
lor either of them to parade their names
in the public press in a correspondence
which is apparently personal. The day
when mutual recrimination will count in
the public mind is, if ever, at election sea
sons but not just at present.

body of a young squaw, whose neck
was incircled by a blood red handker -
chief, giving it the* appearance of be
ing covered with blood. On stating
that she wanted to kill herself, the
kind-hearted conductor took her on
his train and carried her to the next
station, five miles distant. When she
stepped off the train lier despair left
her. and applying her outstretched
thumb and finger to lier nose, she ex
pressed the opinion that an Indian
squaw was a heap smarter than the
pale-faced brave who owned the
smoke wagon.—Dillon Tribune.
