GREAT FALLS TRIJBUNE.
Publlshed Every Saturdly at Great Falls, 11. T WILL HA KS, Puisuas... NOTICE. MR. GEORGE BODIXGTON is the au thorized agent of the TRIIBUNE to SO licit subscription, job work and ad vertising. All contracts made by him will be faithfully carried out by this office. The attorney general in his report recommends that the fees of the U. S. Marshals in Monta :a, Idaho and Wyoming be doubled. By a recent decision of the court the St. Paul Pioneer Press will have to pay a lawyer of that city X1.000 fo" calling him" a 'half-imbecil shyster." In reviewing the case editorially, the Press says that vast and radical re forms are still needed in the law of libel before it can overtake the enor mous progress that has been made in the modern newspaper. New Northwest: The Pr.- i" ' i message, aside from hi., g'l.i-bul; i' antipathy to silver, is mainly good, but he is verbose to the verge of gar rulity. If Dana would puthim on the Sun six months as a reporter, he would learn to talk less and say more. It is fortunate for Montana that Con gress is not as crazy on the silver question as the President. Inter Mountain: Waiashi,.r: ,t tir- ] ritory ladies have got things down i to a finer point than their Montana i sisters. The other day at Tampico ] the postmaster beat his wife, where- i upon the wives of the town gathered 1 in force, tied the postmaster to a fence c and threshed him until he fainted. s This is intended more as a pointer to I Montana women than a warning to v Montana postmasters. The Salt Lake Tribune thinks that the protest against sweeping reduc tions in the tariff this winter ought to be unnecessary. The dominant par ty have in all their platforms a reso- ( lution that there must be a tariff for I revenue. If the national debt is in- o creasing at the rate of $59,000,000 per I annum, certainly there ought to be r no curtailment of revenue, or do what 1 Mr. Buchanan did, sell the warrants c for his salary at a heavy discount to c get his money. t C An exchange says: Some people es timate the ability of a periodical and h the talent of its editor by the quality a of his original matter. It is compar- d atively an easy task for a frothy o writer to string out a column of words upon any and all subjects. His ideas C may flow in one weak, washy. ever- a lasting flood, and the command of his language may enable him to string a them together like bunches of onions, and yet his paper may be but ae meagre and poor concern. Indeed, the mere writing part of editing a paper is but a small portion of the . work. The care, the time employed , in selecting, is far more important, d and the fact of a good editor is better shown by his selections than anything else; and that we know is half the battle. But, we have said, an editor ought to be estimated, his labor under- f stood and appreciated, by the general j conduct of his paper,--its to,e, its d uniform, consistent course, aims, cl manliness, dignity, and its propriety. tl THE NEW AP'POINTED .TI>nTCE. A special dispatch from Glendive. dated December 7th, to the Minneap olis Tribune, says, in reference to the late appointment of a now associate justice for Montana: "Court opened this morning, Judge Coburn presiding. In reply to the Tribune correspondent he said he had no notification of his removal and the appointment of his successor, except newspaper report. No notification of any charges preferred or their pur port. Investigation was not wanted; a certain clique limited to a few per sons desire to control the judiciary of the Territory. Coburn not proving ai tool in their hands, a plot was laid ] and the desired end accomplished. The new judge is not the one wanted and may not meet the wishes of the clique.- If not, he, too, will fall. Letters were written to -suspected persons, asking them to make charges. One letter says: 'Hatch up some thing. If you know of his going to Indiana during the campaign, pre sumably for political purposes, state it, as it will help; anything that will show his inelegibility, or incompeten cy will do. It must be done before Congress meets.' This is not even politics. The judiciary should be above approach by some means, and if charges are preferred, a rigid inves tigation should be required. The ] Senate has yet to pass its judgment and it is hoped it will have the mat ter sifted. Billings citizens have held a mass meeting and sent a telegraph t protest. Glendivo citizens have also f sent a strong protest." Since the foregoing was in type we learn that Judge Coburn received of- I ficial notification of his suspension, f while holding court at Glendive. He immediately dismissed the juries and adjourned court until the next term. The judge is exceedingly wroth at the manner in which he was suspend- i ed. He charges the whole matter to E a certain clique who have cleverly en- I gineered the case and secured his dis missal without giving him a chance toT clear himself of any charges which t they may have preferred against him. i GOV. WARREN'S REPORT. Gov. Warren of Wyoming, in his annual report, refers to the Rock Springs Chinese labor riot of Septem ber 3. The white miners who engag ed in the massacre were,he says,nearly all aliens. He states the action he took in suppressing the riot, and says that public sentiment in those places where Chinese were employed iu the mines y is decidedly in favor of the rioters. i Several arrests were made but no in dictments were found. He suggested that the "insurrection act" be amend ed by insertion of the word "torrito n rial," bO that tie doubt about thi power of the go...clr to :-o.mou troops in case of ec~Ui .en;c:, i. .a' be tremoved." ; The gaern, says ;Vyo mint lelieve@ in an,- le.no,.ýeis wo man's suffrage.

Shoshone, Idaho. has solved the a Chinese question without muchtroub le as the following from the Journal Z of that place will show: "The last re maining Chinaman shouldered his t rice sack and "lit out" for Snake river ti last week. Last August the citizens ' of Shoshone resoved to rid the town a of the moon-eyed. leprous gang, so a they were discharged from the employ of hotels and families and told that s there was no further use for them c here. The wash Chinamen were also b advised to take a walk, which they all p did immediately, with the exception p of Ah Sam and Ah King, who had a A garden just above town. They were tl given time to sell their vegetables C and collect the "ducats" due them, which was accomplished last week, II and consequently their departure. C The "firing" of the Chinese gave S empl!oymnent to a large nufber of tl white girls as servants, cooks, etc, be- tl sides furnishing' many families with Ii washing. ironing and mending to do, p which otherwise would have been tl done almost exclusively by Chinamen. tI P------0- x Much apprehension has been mani fested in the West in respect to the I scope of Commissioner Spark's recent i decision to the effect that homestead claimants, who have previously had C the benefit of the preemption law, can not commute their homestead claims. r Members of congress have received F many letters on the subject, indicat- t ing a wide-spread fear that this decis ion was to be made retroactive, which g would have the effect of upsetting ti ties to many claims which had passed n by purchase into hands of third par- e ties. Senator Van Wyck, on behalf e of many of his constituents, recently g made an inquiry of General Sparks with reference to the matter, and was P informed that the decision will, unless revised by higher authority, be a guide for the future action of the land O offices, but that the commissioner is d not inclined to go into the actions of his predecessors, nor interfere with claims which have already been secur ed under former rulings of the Land o Office in this respect, unless fraud is a shown to have been perpetrated in so curing such claims.-Associated Press a] dispatch. _ CLEANING UP HORSETIIIEVES. An Eagle Pass special to the Gal- ti veston News says: Sheriff Oglesby, T with Robert Downe and James Oli- be ver, visited the Delgardo ranch with di a warrent for the arrest of Manuel ki Delgardo on the charge of smuggling ti and horse stealing. The ranch is li twenty rmles below Eagle Pass, on T the Rio Grande, and has been famous S5 for many years as a rendezvors for oi horsethieves and outlaws from both sE republics. A gang of Mexican smugg- oi made it their headquarters. Arriving at the house, the officers found Dal- P gardo asleep on the lower floor, and ol were about seize him when he awoke N1 and fired at Dowe, the bullet grazing Ic his head. The sheriff instantly fired, ei sending a bullet through Delgardo's ci heart. The firing aroused the gang, cA who attacked the officers and drove ai them from the ranch.

WASIINGTON LETTER. [From our Regular Correspondent.] SWASHINGTON,Dec. 5, 185. Ere this communication reachen you Congress will have convened. The Senate and House of Represent atives will be called to order simul taneounly. After the formal organi zation the House and probably the Senate, will open with a discussion of the rules. The contest will be between those who want to make this a working session, and those who it is alleged, would squander it in idleness and in talk. Many of the arriving Congressmen say if any business is to be accomplish ed during the session, there must first be a revission of the rules. The popular plan is to take some of the power away from the Committee on Appropriations, by placing a part of their work in the hands of other Committees. It was a standing joke during the last session that the United States Congress consisted of the Senate and Sam Randall. Underneath the joke there was much deep felt jealousy of the lifteen members who compose Mr. Randall's potent committee. Any plan to curtail their prerogatives it is thought, will meet with favor from the remaining three hundred and ten Members of the House. who belong to the less important committees. The Democratic majority in the House of Representatives has a useful if not a brilliant part to perform in national politics this session. It will occupy a peculiar position. The Senate being Republican by a small majority, the House will be without power of positive legislation, while at the same time its responsibility will be great. It will be practically on its good behavior. It will be required to show to the country that it is not inclined to do anything radical and extreme and that it is ready to propose everything that is conservative and good. Its first work probably will be to provide for a rational count of the Electorial votes and for an orderly succession to the Presidensy in case of Vacancy. After these matters are disposed of, three questions of great importance will have to be dealt with,-the reform of the currency, the reform of the Tariff, and the reform of the Civil Service. On the latter no affirmative legislation will be required beyond the passage of the necessary appropriation. But efforts will be made to prevent the appropriation, to repeal the law, and cripple thelsystem. The question of a successor to the late Vice-President Hendricks con tinues to be an absorbing topic here The caucus of Republican Senators to be held at the Capitol tonight will decibe who it shall be. You will know the result of the caucus before this letter reaches you. Consequent ly it is useless to forecaste its action. The Democrats would greatly prefer Senator Edmunds for presiding officer of the Senate, and look upon the selections of either Senators Logan or Sherman as a kind of menace. Having completed his message, the President has begun upon the District of Columbia appointments. The Marshalship being first in order, the long struggle for that office has end ed by Col. Wilson, a well known citizen of Washington, securing the coveted prize. As usual, the contest ants were all left in the race. Mr. Wilson was not an applicant for office The President summoned him to the W\hite Hou: e, co :::ulted ith him for a sh:'r in ade in ab.unt two hours issued his app,oint ceut.

As usual, just before the meeting of Congress, ofivial Department re ports are coming out with quantities of information. The Postmaster General led o I wit h a voluminous document. Heo tells that the revenues of the Postal )epartment are steadily falling off, while the expanditures arejust as steadilyincreasing. Owing to large Pension payments, there was no reduction last month or the a _: on al debt. The surpla; wa; uled to pay debts to the :.,ldier. instead of to the bond-holdors. RELIEF FOR THE ID[.t.
