GREAT FALLS TRIBUNE.
WRDNOSDAY. JANUARY . 1865.
SEMI-WEEKLY
GOV. HAUSER INTERVIEWED.
Ex-Gov. Hauser has favored the
public with an interview, in which he
gives his opinions of the situation
and sets forth, in his judgment the
mistakes that have been made by the
democrats in the remarkable contest
since the convening of the legisla
ture. While he doesn't say so, the
ex-governor doubtless thinks that the
greatest of these was the failure of
the caucus to select Hon. Samuel T.
Hauser as one of the United States
senators. This action would doubt
less have covered a multitude of
minor sins and probably render it
unnecessary that he should have
been interviewed at such length.
Mr. Hauser holds that the demo
crats made a grave mistake in going
into the senate and thus aiding in
the organization of that body. In
this he is sustained by many demo
crats. The latter had the vantage
ground and should have held it to
force a fair investigation of the dis
puted Silver Bow precinct-let the
result be what it would. But as for
a compromise looking to a division of
political honors, the masses of the
party, we believe, would not endorse
it. The democratic party is right in
its position or it is wrong, and it
should stand or fall on the issue.
In regard to the charges that Gov.
Hauser is preventing the election of
U. S. senators by influencing a few
of his followers to absent themselves
from the joint session, that gentleman
says:
"As a matter of fact I couldn't in
fluence our senators if I wanted to.
They are independent men who will
do what they believe for the best in
terests of the party. I will say in
answer to that charge, however, that
in the past three days our senators
have been in daily telegraphic corres
pondence through me with our friends
in the United States senate at Wash
ington as to the course they should
pursue. They received tonight the
last telegraphic message in answer
to some final questions sent by Sena
tor Baker, of qhoteou, and as all these
communications will be laid before
the caucus tomorrow, I have no
doubt they will be governed by the
advice of these able and experienced
statesmen in any action they may
take."
We can not help but tLink that if
the action of the caucus had been
different, the wires between Helena
and Washington would not have
been "burned pp" to find out what
Senator Vest and others thought of
the situation.
As the case now stands it seems to
the TaRIuxi there is no other course
to pursue, save to proceed in joint
session to the election of senators.
This is the will of a large majority
of the democratic representatives and
it should prevail. Unless it is done
Sanders and Power will proceed to
Washington with certificates in their
pockets and find ready admittance
to seats in the senate, if there are no
contestants.
THE KENNEY BURLEiQUE.
Colonel Sanders cannot derive
much profit or satisfaction from the
suit which he brought for Roberts,
of Butte, to compel Auditor Kin
ney to issue him a warrant for his pay
as so-called representative. Attorney.
General Haskell, to his credit, filed
an answer that would have tested the
validity of Roberts' claim, but Audi
tor Kinney declined with much ve
hemence to swear to it although it was
based throughout on "information
and belief." Mr. Haskell thus found
himself without a case except such as
was supplied by Kinney's* weak
plea that he ought not be asked to is
sue a warrant because there was no
appropriation to pay it.
In trying to establish the validity
of his own position and Roberts',
Colonel Sanders has met with a de
cided rebuff. Judge Hunt emphati
cally declines to pass upon the jus
tire of Roberts' claim. He points
out that as Kinney has let the suit
go by default no alternative is left
for the court which is constrained to
issue the writ of mandate, directing
Kinney to pay Roberts for services
which he never rendered.
Thus is the Silver Bow fraud ex
tending its baneful influence to the
state administratipn. Kinney, who
has, probably, been in collusion with
Sanders, disregards the advice of
Attorney-General Haskell, himself a
republican and practically says to the
rumps come along and fill your pock
ets from the public treasury. "I,
Kinney," he says in effect, "am one
of yourselves. I want no judicial
authority for disbursing the public
money, Jack and Hall's hocus-pocus
work will suffice for me." Whither
are we drifting?
A STATEMENT has been prepared in
the department of agriculture show
ing the production of wheat, corn and
oats in the various states and terri
tories last year. For Montana the
showing is as follows: Wheat, acres,
85,000; bushels, $1,539,000; value,
$1,153,875. Corn, none reported.
Oats, acres, 85,938; bushels, 2,578,000;
value, $1,134,882.

CENTRAL AVE. - - - GREAT FALLS, MONT.
THlE SILVElR "PLAN."
Secretary Windom, according ti
Washington advices, is deligently at
work drafting a silver hill which he
will have presented in both houses of
congress within the next few weeks.
He has won the president to his view
of thinking, so that the new silver
bill will have the full indorsement
and influence of the administration.
The main features of the bill are
those laid down in the secretary's re
port, the central idea being the issu
ing of treasury notes against silver
bullion deposited at the mints of the
United States. The bill will provide
specifically for the opening of the
mints of the United States to the de
posit of silver bullion and for the
payment for this of its market value
in notes. These notes are to be re
ceived at all customs houses for all
the taxes and other public dues. They
will be of a denomination from $1
upward, the secretary favoring a good
share of small bills. The features
thus far are in accord with the re
commendation of the report, but at
this point the secretary will make a
change. This he proposes to modify
simply by making it necessary that
the president shall approve the
order of the secretary suspend
ing the receipt of bullion, thus plac
ing the responsibility for such an
order on the administration. This
is the only safeguard given the peo
ple from an absolute suspension of
silver coinage. As every adminis
tration for twenty years has been
hostile to silver, it is apparent that
this is but very little protection, and
the friends of silver will hardly ac
cept such a concession as sufficient.
Another important provision of the
bill will be designed to meet the ob
jection that unless the amount of
silver bullion be limited his policy
may result in dangerous increase in
the volume of currency. Provision
will be madeagainst the world's ex
cess of silver. The bill will contain a
section which shall provide for a
limit in the number of placesat which
bullion shall be received, and give
the right to'refnse such silver as may
be offered in the shape of bullion in
cases where the owner will not make
affidavit that the metal is not the
melted silver, coin or otherwise, of
other countries. This provision is in
accord with the suggestion of the re
port that it is preferable to restrict
the deposits to the product of Ameri
can mines, or to deposits of new bul
lion rather than to limit the amount
to a specified quantity or value.
Another provision which is not yet
fully decided on, but which may be
incorporated in the bill, will give the
secretary, under some restrictions,
the authority to sell bullion, retain
ing the gold proceeds for the redemp
tion of the notes.
The trouble with the whole matter
is that this"plan",or any other, is not
calculated to treat silver rightly.
What is wanted is simply to give
silver its right place in our circulat
ing mediut, on an equal and exact
footing with gold. No plans or
schemes, or shrewd Wall street secre
taries are needed to bring about
this result, and all such must be dis
trusted by the friends of silver.
WE. told you so. Lee Mantle is
trying to eat crow, but does not bank
er after it. Here is what the Inter
Mountain said: "Helena wanted the
earth and got it. The just claims of
the West side to an equal division of
the o natorships were swept aside
and another Helena man elected as
Montana'e second senator. It will be
a long time before the Westside will
forgot the injustice that has been put
upon her today, and there is no doubt
but the future holds in store oppor
tunities and occurrences which will
make the Hogopolis of Montana re
gret the action to which she has been
urged by her uncontrolable cupidity
and selfish grasping after her neigh
bor's rights." After all there is some
hope thatl Mantle and Read may be
come sound democrats, for, in the
same paper, they say: "The West
side will appreciate the action of the
democrats in electing, so far as lay in
their power, a prominent citizen from
this stde of the range as their choice
for the United States senate. The
act stands out in sharp relief when
contrasted with the course pursued
by the republicans, who had it in
their power to give the West side
substantial recognition in the saute
regard."
STRANGE DOCTRINE.
The Butte Inter Mountain wants
the Standard to explain how it hap
pens that a quorum of democrats is
not gathered to ratify the nomination
of two democratic senators. A frank
reply does not put thisn newpaper to
ita wit's end. The formal and final
action of democrats at Helena is con
fessedly delayed. One reason for it
is that men of commanding influence
in democratic politics are not heartily
agreed in support of the ticket that
was named in the caunus of the party
a confession which the Standard
makes without reservation and with
out the alightest thought that the
telling of the plain truth wounds its
pride or puts its political convictions
to the blush. Another reason is that
leading republicans of Montana de
clare that the Sanders-Power ticket
must not stand. They have implored
the democrats to pause. So abhor
rent is the situation, that the Inter
Mountain need not wonder, if, in the
end, a comp omise results in the elec
tion of one demccrat and one repub
lican, after all.-Anasonda Standard.
This is most assuredly strange doc
trine. Who are these "men of com
manding influence" who are not sat
isfied with the choice of the demo
cratic caucus? If their influence is
so oppressively "commanding," why
did they not exercise it before the
caucus? Are these alleged political
powers greater than the democratic
representatives, fresh from the peo
ple, a majority of whom decided in
favor of Hon. W. A. Clark and Major
Maginnis for senators? Not by any
rule of polities we have ever conned.
As for compromise, there is no strong
er reason for it now than when the
legislature first assembled at Helena.
If the democratic position is not right,
let Sanders and Power go to Wash
ington and take their seats in the
senate; if it is right, the choice of the
democratic party-Messrs. Clark and
Maginnis--are entitled to that honor.
There is no middle ground. Even
"men of commanding influence in the
party" can't make right wrong and
wrong right.
