for the sale of certain lands for school

on the calendar.
Mrg an the Iorilttae BilL.
The resolution ofered yesterday by
Morgan ntlling on the secretary of the
interior for information as to lands of the
Northern Pacifio Railway company, and
of other companies whose roads were not u
completed within the period flied by the a
granting act, was taken up, discussed
and agreed to On motion of Plumb, the s
conference report on the ralroad for- b
telture bill, was taken up. The main
proposition in the teport is containoed in ti
the frst sectOn as follows: "That there
is hereby. lorfeited to the United States ,
asod the United States hereby resumes tl
title thereti.of all lands heretofore a
granted to sna state or to any corporation '
to aid in the construction of any railroad
opposite to or coterminous with c
a portion of any such railway not
now completed and in operation '
for the construction or beneSt of which
such landt were granted and all such
lands are delasipd tp be part of the pub
lic domual, provtded that this aset shall
not be construed es forfeiting the right of
way or station grounds of any ailroad l
company heretofore granted the same. h
Morgan opposed the report as a log. 1
rolling aschdthe gotten up for the benefit T
of all leafnd·ebt roads. He said that to
while the fiet section professed to he for- a
feiture all other sections related to separ- ti
ate railroads and exempted them from Il
the operatlon of the forfeiture seot;on or
else seuered to them certain pecuniary t
advantages It could scarcely be said rt
that there weAsny land forfeited by the
bill to the government in consequence of ii
the faildre of roads to comply with the n.
terms of the original grants. The most
that could be said of it was that a few ci
stmall roads that had not got friends n
enough in the two houses to stand up for 0
them and hold up their hands were to be
crucifie for the sake of glossing over th
and varnslhing the false pretense of the It
get.eral forfeiture. After speaking for
over four hours, Morgan said he knew m
the questions which he had been discuss- T
ing were going t ýtpir grave in the pas. -
sage of the blHi but that he desired to
gve them decentburial. He had d.shllk
ed to erect a head stone over the graves
Iof .e rght of the people on the line of
the I.or hern PFc so that historic re- ti
cora might or er}n ereafter He had
wanted to remnd tl he people of the
nitod tates of the vast robbery perpe- r
tratedliy that company and which was
sanctionsd, wound up and brought to a i
conclusion by the hill. He knew what
the votp would be; he knew when repub- ni
licens came in on one aide of a report to
and democrats opposing, what the result cl
would be. Whenever the bill was passed g
forfeiture of Northern Pacific lands
would be dead and buried and nothing "
more would be heard about it. Without
finishing his speech Morgan yielded tihe
toor on a motion to adjouri.

A Reminder of Old Timas. Jer
dcUTE, Sept. 10.-When the Champion Par
stage reached this city this afternoon the We
driver announced that he had been held DB
up and robbed while coming down
Brown's gulch. When the stage left J
Champion this morning it had on board
the driver, Andy Granger, Daniel Mooney W
and a lady whose name the driver did not
know. When coming down Brown's E.
gulch, and about sixteen miles
from the city, Mr. Granger R.I
was startled by the sudden ap- H.
pearance of a masked man at the road
side who demanded an instantaneous up. Th
lifting of hands. As this demand was Het
bacl ed by a Winchester it passed current (.7
and the hands went up. The lady was M.
not disturbed. But he made the men
climb down out of the wagon and when Oril
once on the ground they were ordered to Jo.
take off their coats and vests and place
them on the ground in frontof the bandit
king. D.
As soon as he was satisfied that he had
all their loose effects he ordered both of
the men to take up their clothingand get
out of there with all speed, which order
was cheerfully obeyed. Mr. Granger lost
a valuable gold watch and $10 in money,
while Mr. Mooney lost only $7, all in
cash. According to the best description
that the victims could give their hold-up PER

SAND COULEa, Sept. 11, 1890. fo
EDITOR OF TRIBUNE: Sir, please be
kind enough to give the following a
l" place in your valuable paper: On the hi
3. morning of the 8th, the manager of the t
SBSand Coulee coal mines called a meeting
of the Sand Coulee miners for the pur. hi
pose of trying to arrange matters so sto to
get the men to go to work. The ques
tr tion was discussed on both sides with
some heat and Mr. Burrell left, remark- st
I- ing that perhaus his presence debarred
ar some of the men from speaking their o
ry minds. The men got togethez and elect
as ed a chairman and secretary and appoint- el
ie ed a committee to wait on Mr. Burrell a
or oftering to arbitrate the question. Mr.
!i Burrell replied that the matter of arbi
K tration was entirely beyond his Jurisdic
yr tion, but if the miners would go to work
of at his figures he would telegraph
to Mr. Hill and find out whether
d, he was willing to arbitrate and if Mr t
Ht. Hill said yes, then the miners and offi
i; cials would appoint a board of arbitration
and whatever the arbitrators agreed was
a fair price he would pay. The men dis
cussed the reply and request and after
it, due consideration told Mr. Burrell thNt
en they would not go to work until they had
n- positive assurance that Mr. Hill was will
c. ingto arbitrate. The meeting then ad
o urned. At 8 o'clock of that same day
Mr. Buerell called another meeting and
told the miners they had Ibetter reconsider d
She matter and go towork, that be had
wired Mr. Hill and foundthat he was in
ii, New York, that he (Mr. Burrell) was go
ing to St. Paul and would confer withir.
Hill and get all the concessions possible
or for them. The men seemed to bedivfded.
Bo-Mr. Burrell propoe that they vote
by ballot as to whether they should work
or'not, the majority to rule. The votes
were cast sad Mr.Burrell was defeated
by 96 to 18. There is no Lklihood
ill of their being any work at the Sand
Coulee mines until the ben are fully as
95 sured of Mr. Hill's willingness to arbi
Oe trate, and they know positively the price
en they are galn to be paid for their labor.
The public will see that the Sand Coulee

the solution of the question at ssue, via:

HEaRY WLova,
ED. innscasa,
On the reassembling of the conven
tion. Mr. Paris Gibson, chairman of the
committee on resolutions, read the fol
fowing platform, which was received
with much applause:
The democracy of Cascade county in
convention assembled reaffirms its fideli
ty to the principles of the party, and
points with pride to its able, honest, busi
ness-like national administration under
President Cleveland, and to the twenty
five years of democratic rule in Montana
which left as a legacy to the republicans
a surplus of over $100,090, which was
diasipated in a few months by reckless
republican legislation.
We denounce the present republican
national administration for its wanton
extravagance as shown I y the fact that at
the end of one session of congress, with a
republican majority in each house, a de
f hlt of X60,000,000in the treasury is an
nounced instead of the large surplus
handed down by the democratic adminis
We denounce and protest igalnst the
high protective tarift policy of the repub
lican party which has continued as a bur
den on the people the tax necessitated by
war, and we especially denounce the Mc
Kinlteyt riE bill which Increases taxa
tion, reduces the revenues of the govern
meet, strangles commerce, stimulates
trusts and combim tions of capi
tal, increases the cost of living
and production adds new and greater
burdens upon the people without any
reciprocal return. The most apparent
Sresult of this vicious legislation is a de
r pressed condition of the agricultural and
labor interests of the country, while
trusts and combines of every conceivable
kind are in the very flush of prosperity
and advancement.
,We condemn the usurpa
tion of authority of the speaker of the
nationss house of representa
tives, whose one-man power is denounc
ed alike by party friend and foe, and
who has broken the precedents of a cen
tury In the house of representatives in
order tq carry forward the party pro
gramme and enact legislation of the
most vicious character, which includes
chiefly the McKinley tariff measure and
the Lodge federal election or force bill.
both of which receive the condeminatlon
of a very large majority of the people.
We desire to put in the most for
taie n Way. the seal of our condemns
liar on the' hlghi.handed outrage
by which the republican managers of
dontsta, through the instrumnmtality fi
pliant or purohasable iOnto I.k t tl~l.,,
Jtack and Hltl, stole the vote of the oev
state and reversed the clearly expressed
will of the majority. A more outratue
ous act of political villainy and ballot de.
bauchery has occurred sthis country but
ones before, and that was when the same
political party stole the presidency and
pieced weak and vacillating Hayes In the
seat to which Samuel J. Tilfen was
elected. We denou.ce in unmeasured
- terms the leaders of this great conspira
Sst4t cahief among theml are Bandets
and Power, who, with "FIRAUD)" stump
ed on their foreheads, are now occitpy
ing stolen seats in thle CUnted States sen
ate -and ask the democracy and people
of Montana to give them a scathing re
buke at the polls in November. This is
the hope and mainstay of honest elect
tlns and honest counts in Montana here
The great democratic party hais always
favored and fostered the Ilt-ro ts of the
laboring mln and ihas a laroer lproportion
of toilers ill its ranks than any ohi.r
ptrty that ever abistted in this collntry.
The democracy of Cascade county in
strict confnrmity with this polty, f'avor
the dvancemenit of thlltie ittersta of lo
est labor in this sommnaslllity.
We pledge the best effortst of thel-s cutsli
date of this convention for state senll:t1st'
towards securing for Great Falls thle to
cation of the State Utiversity, to which
puble institution this city, in our opin
Ion, is fully esttitled, by reason of slocl
tion, population, beaultitful site and many
other strong considl-ratiots.
