'The committee anticipated making a favorable report on these bills today, the President, Bishop Budge, the head of the Mormon church in Idaho, appeared and asked that he be given a hearing in opposition to the Idaho con stitution; which has a stringent anti Mormon clause. Accordingly the com mittee postponed final consideration of the bill until Monday next, when Bishop Budge will appear by counsel, and ore sent an argument against the Idaho bill. "The position taken by Bishop Budge only strengthens us. It answers very ef fectually the objection to the admission of Idaho which has been put forward, that the constitution was not strong enough to crush out Mormonism. Bishop Budge is a confessed four ply polyga mist, and haslong been under indictment. His action today will only Aelay the re port of the bill fora week I think."

Hill in his message holds that it is unconstitu- I tional to require an elector to vote for the candidate of his choice by marking upon the exclusively omficial ballot a cross op posite the name of such candidate, and prohibiting him from voting in any other manner. This provision concededly dis franchises one entire class of voters, to wit, those who are unable to read and write. It establishes an educational I qudalcation not authorized by the consti tution. In the governor's opinion it is unconstitutional to require an elector to vote an exclusively oficial ballot contain ing the names of all the candidates nom inated. He states that he has consulted several able jurists and that all agree with him on these points, and in con cluston he says: "An exclusively official ballot, whether desirable or yicious, may of course be se cared by an amendment of the constitu tion, but until that has been accomplish ed it is submitted that it cannot be adopt ed in the state." The governor pays his respects to those I who have assailed him as an opponent of "ballot reform" in the followingpassage: t "The caure of true reform as nor pro- 1 ;oted by loud declaration or by unseem ly protestations of attachments on the , part of its professed friends. Overzeal- , onsnese becomes suspicious in tuch cases and invites the cooclasion that psr tisan advantage or cheap reputation is the object sought, rather then sincere anxie- 1 ty for the public weal."

So if Seattle don't beat the world next season he will two years hence in the Futurity stakes, in which I expect to enter the colt. I expect that in the spring SBeattle must come out ahead.

The first arc light used in Great Falls was turned on last night in Wm. Casey's saloon on First avenue South. The light is a 1,200 candle power and burns with a steady, brilliant glow, and is much more satisfactory than the incandescent lights. Within a week the company will have the circuit completed on Central avenue and those who desire better light service will be accommodated. Superintendent Green of the Montana Central is still here doing yeoman service in getting freight out towards its south ern destination. The entire yard force for a time was lowo with ia grippe,when Supt. Green and Agent Kelly might have been seen in the yard playing the role of switchman, conductor and yard men gen erally.
