THE CHRONICLE PUBLISHING CO. BOZEMAN, M. T. WEEKLY CHRONICLE. WEDSESDAY, JUXE 20,1883. The Queen of England is about to ab dicate. Failing health is the cause as Attention is called to the ordinances passed last Monday night at the meeting of the City Council regarding sidewalks. Ex. U. 8. Senator Eugene Casserly, of California, died in San Francisco June 14th, aged 61. Mr. Casserly ranked high as a'lawyer and served his State in the Senate with distinction. Gen. Crook has come back, after mak ing captive a large number of Indians. Charley McCamas is in the mountains with the squaws and hopes are enter tained of his speedy deliverance from their hands. The Star Boute trial thank heaven, has at last ended and the one hundred and fifty dollars a day blôwhards, can now take a rest after consuming a number of weeks telling the jury what they .knew about the Star Boute stealings. N. L. Dukes, who, it will be remember ed, killed Capt. A. C. Nutt at Uniontown, Pa., some time since and was cleared, was killed June 13th at the same place, by the young son of Capt. Nutt. Public sympathy seems to be with young Nutt. Dukes died almost immediately. The Independent comes to us almost like a pictorial paper. Col. W., is mak ing his visit to the Minneapolitans pay, and they are wise in making themselves known and striking out for the trade of this great Territory. There is no reason why St Paul and Minneapolis may not control the immense trade along the Northern Pacific railroad. Cars commenced running through to Helena on Friday. Leave Bozeman at 3:30 p. m., arrive at Helena, 8:50 p. m.; leave Helena, 5:00 a. m., arrive at Boze man, 11 a. m. Go over and spend a night with your friends and come home to dinner. Helena people can now come over, spend several hours with us and get back home the same day—lets visit a little. Rev. Joseph T. Inman is not dead yet. He still advertises a recipe, free of charge to those suffering from the errors and in discretions of youth, nervous weakness, etc. Bev. Inman, is a fraud. The recipe can only be put up by him, as no one else can get the articles J»y the name he gives them. Give a wide berth to all such quacks. For further information apply at this office. Why would.it not be a good scheme for all the newspaper publishers in Mon tana to meet at Helena on the 4th of July or on the day of their railroad celebra t on and form a press association? AVe think it might be productive of good At any rate we might become better acquainted and an interchange of ideas on matters which concern the whole Territory would be mutually beneficial. Who responds to the idea? Whew! we can now take a rest. The jury in the Star Boute cases have brought in a verdict of "Not guilty." The trial ha 8 cost the government about three hundred thousand dollars and resulted as above stated. It may have the effect however, of waking the country up to such practices and secure greater vigi lance in the future in the matter of mail contracts. Scarcely any one ever seri ously entertained the opinion that any one would be convicted and the verdict is not a surprise. As barbed wire fences are becoming so popular it will be a satisfaction to the fanning community to know that the monopoly in its manufacture has been broken, and as a result the price will be materially lessened by competition. The control of all patents was a short time ago held by one firm, who made prices to suit themselves. Other establishments engaged in the manufacture in contest ing which an important decision has been rendered, which destroys the val idity of the reissued patent. It is thought that the decision will stand the test of the courts, in which case many more will doubtless engage in its manufacture. "Its an ill wind that blows nobody any good." If some measures are not taken to pre vent the lawless in our midst from com mitting crimes it will lead to summary vengeance being visited on the offenders. Our people may be slow to wake up, but we warn the evil doers that when they do, their vengeance will be swift and sure. Only a few days ago Mr. Bums Smith prevented the robbing of a man in broad daylight near the depot, and on June the 12tn an attempt was made to burglar ize the store of Mr. Tilton on East Main street. The burglar or burglars had suc ceeded in boring a number of holes around the lock at the rear door, and be fore completing the job had evidently become frightened and escaped, leaving a brace and bitt on the ground. Suspici ous characters are being watched with vigilant eyes and if they do not "look well out" an example will be made which will be a terror to evil doers. ' Mr. Robert Augustine, of Townsend, honored the Chronicle office with a call during his stay in Bozeman, and from him we glean some facts in connection with that thriving town in the Missouri valley. Townsend will undoubtedly be come a place of some importance. Aside from the fact that it is surrounded by a large district of agricultural land it is the nearest point on the railroad to the AVhite Sulphur Springs, the county seat of Meagher county, and the whole Smith River valley in the north and the min ing country to the south. Mr. DeAVitt, formerly here with Mqjor Bruce, has opened out a store of general merchan dise, Tierney & Co. are building a large business house for general merchandise and Tierney & Marks a billiard hall with five tables, our old friend D. ft. AVeston is also building and will open a drug store. Buildings for other businesses are being put up as rapidly as possible. AVe hope before long to pay onr friends a visit now that we can reach them so «wily. We want to introduce the Chixwku into that enterprising new «ttjfc We give our readers the report of the Grand Jury which has just clos?d a very laborious session. There is one matter to which they have directed^ public at tention, and it is hoped that it will have good effect, and that is to the practice of Justices of the Peace, and other examin ing magistrates Bending up or binding over parties upon slight pretexts. It very often entails great expense to the county as well as great hardship to the persons so bound over. If justices would take a little pains to examine complain ing witnesses when the complaint is filed, and find out how much a case they have, and whether it would justify the issuance of a warrant, great expense would be saved. Again, many cases are sent before the Grand Jury which would come within the jurisdiction of the lower courts. AATien a complaint is filed and a person arrested for trivial causes the complaining witness should be made to pay the costs. Prospecting for quartz in the mountains adjacent to Bozeman will become quite a f :ature in this season's operations, and we are much mistaken if some good finds are not reported. Public attention lias never heretofore been directed that wav. We are apt to look too far away from home and a discover}' hundreds of miles away over inaccessible mountains is apt to create excitement and a stampede which eventually proves a myth, and we neglect opportunities near home. AVe think it would be well for our people to encourage prospecting in our mountains, even if gold and silver are not discovered in paying quantities, other deposits such as coal, iron and copper can be found, and they will add in the near future im mensely to our wealth. As we have said before, the gold in our gravel deposits, «how the existence of mother lodes which undoubtedly exist in our mountains. The advantages of discoveries of value cannot be overestimated and we confidently pre dict that they will be found. Talk for home. Fight for home. Pat ronize home, is the aim of the Chronicle. AVe talk for home because it is our home, because it is the best home we ever had, because it has more natural substantial resources to make a home in, than any country under the sun, by home we mean all of Montana Territory. AVe do not decry any portion of it. Thrift, in dustry, honesty and perseverance can make a home in any part of it. Perhaps the second sentence is superfluous. AVe do not as yet need to fight for it, except in maintaining its superiority over less favored countries, but if necessary we can and will fight for it. AVe patronize home because it is the way to build it up. Every industry, eveiy pursuit, every en terprise in our midst should be patroniz ed. If your merchant has what you want, buy of him, rather than send your money away. If your tailor can make you a suit of cldHies, order of him. If your bootmaker can make you a good pair of boots, order of him. If your brewer can make good beer for yon, or der of him ; in fact if there is anything you want which can be procured at home give home the preference, and last, but not least, if you want any kind of print ing done give your home papers a chance to do it. Let us all adopt this motto. "Talk for home ; fight for home; patron ize home. Judge Wade deserves credit for the rapid manner in which he Is disposing of the immense business before the court, even holding night sessions. At no time in the history of Gallatin county has there been such an array of indictments, and we hope never to see such a one again. The Grand Jury have had an im mense amount of labor on their hands. It is a good jury and have despatched a large amount of business, and are entitl ed to the thanks of the community. The criminal calender is so large that a great many civil cases will go over, owing to the limited time Judge AVade has at his disposal. It would seem to be an imper ative necessity that one or more judicial districts should be established, thereby giving the judges more needed rest be tween terms, and giving facilities for the speedy disposition of all cases on the docket. Judge AVade had no sooner re turned from a four hundred mile trip to Miles City, where a long term of court was held, than he was called upon to hold court at this place with a docket so large that he had not time to dispose of it before his official duties called him elsewhere. AVe trust this matter will be brought prominently before the proper authorities and other judicial districts established at an early day. The im mense area of Territory, the increasing litigation, and the rapid accession of po pulation demands it. APPROVAL OF CHANGE OF ROUTE. Secretary Teller April 26th, 1883, ren dered an important decision, approving the map of the definite location of the Northern Pacific railroad, through the Rocky Mountain Division. The line so approved departs from the old route at Gallatin and unites again at Little Black foot. This change shortens the line some forty-three miles and releases a large amount of land from the grant and re stores it to the public domain. The question presented is whether the com pany under its charter was authorized to make this change, after having filed its map of general route. The secretary de cides the question affirmatively and has approved the map of July 5th, 1882, and directs the commissioner of the general land office, to cause a withdrawal to be made.to conform to the new line as defi nitely located and designated by such map and to restore the lands lying out side of the limits of the new route and in all respects adjust the grant to the new line. RAILROAD LANDS. As we have frequently been interview ed by settlers upon railroad lands in re ference to the action of the Land De partment of the road, in regard to the disposition of the lands and the views entertained as to what lands the right of the railroad attached etc., we have taken some pains to inform ourselves on these points and give xiur views for the benefit of those seeking the information and in doing so will be governed by what we believe to be justice to ourselves as well as the railroad. Some persons claim that the railroad authorities are charging more for the land tlian they had led set tlers to believe they would and thereby induced settlement and cultivation, en hancing the value of the land, which they (the railroad) were turning to their own advantage. Now to look at this thing in a business way you must see both sides. You must put yourself in their place and ask yoursely the ques tion. AVhat would I do if situated as they are. In answer to the above we wonld say our investigation has led us to the conclusion, that the Land Depart ment are adhering to their proposition, that all bona fide settlers upon railroad lands should have the option of purebas 9g one hundred and sixty acres of land, and no more, at the price of two dollars and sixty cents per acre, and if the set tler had filed upon more than that amount the price for the surplus would be governed by quality of land, its loca tion etc. This does not apply to those who had filed upon land contiguous to their homestead and pre-emption claims, as such persons are not regarded as bona fide settlers, and have only taken up such lands for purposes of speculation, and in their case the land could be bought at a price agreed upon, which, as above stat ed, would be governed by quality, loca tion, etc., and the limit of $2.60 per acre applies only to those who had settled prior to June 5th, 1882. AVe are aware that many per sons have thought when the price of $2.60 per acre was named by the railroad authorities that it was meant to apply to all their lands irrespective of location and the conditions surrounding it, but then this was only a conclusion of our own, and one in which they do not coincide, but hold that they have the right to charge just what such are worth. Loca tion, quality of soil, its adaptability to agriculture, grazing or even timber, gives it a certain monetary value, and as such they reserve the right of asking what it is worth. But you say. it is to the inter est of the railroad to induce immigration and the settlement of the country, that they would realize more from their road etc. That is true, and we think by limit ing the amount of land to one hundred and sixty acres to bona fide settlers only at the price named is the surest way to settle up the country. To make this price apply to the acquisition of unlimit ed land would only encourage a monopo ly, and ere long our whole country would be bought up by capitalists, who would charge the settler all that could be squeez ed out of it. Again, the terms offered are such that a poor man can acquire a farm and in a short time pay for it out of the proceeds of the soil. AVliile it may be unfortunate that there is a land grant and that by virtue of it the price of both government and railroad lands is increas ed, the fact exists, and cannot be avoided now and we must take things as we find them. The general policy of the N. P. railroad (as compared to similar corpora tions) has been one of liberality, and as such have acquired a popularity with the travelling public, as will eventually make it the most sought after and well patron ized of all the trans-continental routes, and we can scarcely think that they will now adopt a policy of extortion. AVhile we do not think anything we might say or do would have any effect upon these matters we desire to present them as they appear to us. Again it has been said that the railroad was contesting en tries of lands made prior to withdrawal, AVe do not believe they can maintain any such case, nor do we know as a fact that they have tried it in cases where the land was filed on and occupied from the time of withdrawal to the present time, There are cases no doubt in which they will make an attempt, and those are, where the land had been filed on and abandoned prior to withdrawal. AVe be lieve the ruling has been as follows: AVhere land was filed on prior to with drawal and then abandoned before with drawal, the railroad right attaches, but where the filing was carried past the time of withdrawal and then abandoned, that the land reverted to the govern ment. Some have even taken the pre caution to obtain both the government and railroad title, where the questions might arise. AVe understand that the attorney of the road hgs a theory,-and that is, "that all the publie lands of the United States belong to the Northern Pacific railroad." Again the question has been asked. Does the railroad right attach to the receded part of the Crow Reservation? The opinion generally en tertained is that the railroad could not claim, only under the indemnity land clause, and that even, only included lands "not otherwise appropriated," at the time of the adoption of their route, and as they were then included in an Indian Reservation, that therefore they could lay no valid claim, and as a con sequence both odd and even sections were subject to entry under the different laws governing such matters. Again the question comes. AVhen does the date of withdrawal commence? This and many Other questions have yet to be ruled on by the Interior Department, and these r Jlings, while not conclusive (as either party might appeal from it) will no doubt be the law governing such cases. To m inv of us these things are very import ant, and while we believe in exact jus tice, our feelings and sympathies will be with the settler, but we shall not array ourselves against the railroad except where we believe them to be in error. The interests of both ought to be mutual, and we think will be so looked upon. In the meantime we would urge upon all settlers upon public and railroad lands, to perfect their title to such lands as soon as possible, as the increasing value will be only an incentive to defeat the acqui sition of title. Some may doubt the policy, but as a question of right they can demand all that the land will bring a id as long as they stick to their promise^ to give actual settlers one hundred and sixty acres at the price of two dollars and sixty cents per acre, we cannot seriously complain. THE LATEST NEWS. A. P. Adams, a wealthy ranchman of Red Cloud, Nebraska, who lias been sued in Omaha for $10,000 damages by Stew art Iloge, for the alienation of his wife's affections, declares he is innocent and was not in Omaha on the day specified with Mrs. Hoge, and has not been in Omaha for three years. Some people think it is blackmail. The Harvard faculty have decided to set apart for graduate students next year four scholarships of the value of at least $250 each. These scholarships are to be ojien for candidates for the degree of Ph. D., who are in need of pecuniary assist ance and have been in residence at the university throughout the year. The assignment will be made at the close of the academic year. Chinese firms are quietly "buying or leasing a large quantity of real estate at A'ictoria, B. C., on which to erect exten sive business houses. The transactions are regarded as significant of the inten tion of the Chinese to monopolize the trade in Chinese and Japanese goods with eastern Canada on the completion of the Canadian Pacific railway. It is reported that Senator Tabor, in ignorance of the elaborate routine by which alone money can lie legally paid out of the United States treasury, recent ly drew directly on Secretary Folger for $65,000, the price of land which he sold to the government for the new postoffice and custom house at Denver, and depos ited the draft with a Colorado bank for collection.
