THR LEG1SLATIVV BITUATION. The Helena Journal is not as rapid as it wt a a few days ago, and now it calls loudly for compromise. The Journalevi dently recognizes that the democrats have the best of the situation and it is willing that the poor rumps on the second floor of the electric building shall yield to the inevitable. Discussing the subject that paper says: The extraordinary conditions that would confront the state in default of legialation, demands that all political ambitions, party tactics, partisan purposes and private grlevences he thrust assde for the public good. 'To do this involves no violation of the law, no surrender of principles. It implies only caucus con sent on the part of the two political or ganizations to some plan of compromise honorable to each, If steps in this direc tion are not taken in time to rescue the the state from threatened anarchy, the responasbility will be firmly fixed by an ouraged public where it properly belongs. The Journal, true to the interests of the great Montana publto and its own convic tions of duty, can foresee the po.sibility of conditions wherein a party sacrlflce,in solving no surrender of principles, may redound to the honor of the organization and challenge the admiration and approv al of all thiuking men. The pseetlge of making possible legislation to preserve the integrity of statehood, may be a lau rel that will crown with glory the party that faills heir to the hotor of that act. Appropos of a compromise we may say that Chairman T. E. Collins of the demo cratlc state committee suggested a fair and reasonable one while at the capital a few days ago. Hla proposition was that the fifty members of the house of repre IentativCs-twenty-five democrats and twenty-five republicans-whose title to seats is unquestioned, should meet and proceed with the business of the state. By reason of their supremacy in the sen ate and the executive office as well as the verdict in their favor at the polls on I1o vember 4th, the democrats should be ac corded the speakership, the other officers to be equally divided. This arrangement would leave the ten claimants from Silver Bow out and their contests would simply be referred to the committee on elections to be-acted upon in the usual way. With the house equal ly divided, politically none of thgem wooul. be seatei. For the-same reason no legislation of a political nesure could be enacted, and both houses could pro ceed with the pressing leglaslative wants of the state. This proposition seems to be eminently fair and if it is not accepted by the republicans, the people will know who is to blame. The TT.nrnu takes the rround that there is no time to lose in the matter of proceeding with legislation. The sixty days session is at best short enough for the first working term of that body. If the republcans do not see fit to meet the democrats on this half way ground, there is just one thing else to do, and there should not be twenty-four hours delay in doing it. The democratic senate and house should go right to work making laws and if any state officers Interfere with them let them take the consequences. There seems to be excel. lent ground for seating Chas. E. Duer in stead of J. W. Power of Choteau county; let it be done promptly. Then it the su preme court proposes to follow Its line of partisgnlsm, there is a way to deal with that body. Impeachment for cause would be fully in order. This rauseneed not be any decisions rendered by the court. The action of one of the judges as an officer of the canvassing board and of another in boasting on the street what the decision of the court would be in this legislative case,would be good ground for deposing thenm icordiug to the forms of It reste with the democrats to see that legislation begins promptly, and if the republicans nsist that their five frauds who were defeated at the polls should have the slightest recognition, the ex treme mode of procedure should be re sorted to. The TatrBnoN, however, would prefer to see a compromise effected, but in case the republicans refuse to assent to It, then the case is desperate enough to demand a desperate remedy, The state is now indebted to the pen!. tentiary contractors, Mesers. Conley & McTague, in the sum of $50,000, and to Dr. Muigsabrod, of the insane asylum, to the amount of $100,000. The contractor. can not realize on these claims until there is proper legislation and an appropria .tion is made. They are, of course, an. tens to rsake settlement with the state. Tag advertising fakir is abroad in the land and he seems to find easy victimsin the bucsiness men of Great Falls. All kinds of schemes are brought forth and the business man who expects to profit from any of them will be badly decelved. The lhie newspaper is invariably tl.e best medium for advertising. THB GOVEIINUMIS AMfBSAAGY. Gov. Toole's message to the legislature, read in person by him before the senate and house of representatives, is an able tate document, covering about all the ground upon which legislation is now re quired. The many subjects dealt with in the message are elaborately treated, and in few instances can even the bitterest partisan find objections to the views set forth. The opinion seems to obtain that it is the ablest message ever presented by a Montana governor. The governor begins with a reference to the material asvonement and growth of the state, presentlog a line of statistics that Ieavq no room to doubt Montana's prosperity. For instance, the total as seament of the estte has increased in one year from $79,000,000 to $112,000,000 and the wealth from all sources from $149, 000,000 to $809,030,000. "This remarka ble march of progress," says the gover nor, "when augmented by federal legis lation looking to reolamation of our arid lands and the increase of the circulating medium which will follqw the free and unlimited coinage of our sllver, will reach a point far beyond the expectations of the most sanguine." But the governor insists that our great resources and wealth should not tempt the legislature into improvident expenaiture of the peo. ple's money. The condition of the state institutions is fully reviwed and the action taken by the executive, in the absence of any law on the subject, or any appropriation, to maintain the penitentiary and insane asylum. Contracts we let by the gover nor for maintaining these institutions to Conley & McTague and Dr. Musigbrod. There Is now due the first named about $50,000 and the latter $100,000. The gov ernor asks that his actions be ratified and that the money necessary to meet these obligations be appropriated. Various other necessary obligations incurred are also cited and authority for their pay ment asked. It is suggested that early action should be taken looking to the location of the several state institutions, but that it would anot be well at this session to make ap propriations for the construction of build ings. The governor fears thatthe state militia as at present constituted is too expensive and he suggests reducing the number of companies and the abandonment of the annual encampments. In this way $20, 000 a year might be saved. At almost every stage when appropria tions are required, sec. 10 of art. 19 of the constitution il enyoked by the gov ernor. It provides that no appropriation shall be made or warrant ircued during any year beyond the' mount raised by taxation that year. In other words, Mon tana can not go in debt, except upon a vote of the people to raise revenue for a specific purpose. This provision must keep all appropriations within modest bounds. Recommendations are made that au thority be given to contract for suitable quarters for the state ofllers, and that a law making all neceseary provisions for the election of 1898 be enacted. During the past year 29 applications for pardon were presented to the gov ernor, and of this number but five were granted. The governor rgeps speedy legistatrve actlon looking to \the early selectiono of lands granted to the state. He observes that if the federal government or Ihe state shall ultimately aid in the establish ment of a system of Irrigation and the storage of Water by means of reservoirs no man can appronit.ate the value of tuese land to the state in the future. Railroad grants and mineral lands are exhaustively discussed and prompt action to protect the state urged. The legislature Is also urged to memorialize congress on the subleft of desert lands and irrigation, formulating our demandsn on these sub jects. The govertor recommends the scaling down of fees of county officers. He saug. gests a complete revision and adjustment of the present law fixing the fees of county officers so as to make them ap proximately commensurate with the ser vices renderdd, and that all fees when collected be paid into the respective county treasuries, and that in lieu thereof, salaries be paid to such officers. This proposed law to take effect January 1st, 1808. The modification of the incorporation law is suggested so as to limit the num ber or kinds of business that may be in corporated. Is regard to registration which has been found to be burdensome in sparsely settled districts, the governor takes strong grounds in favor of limiting registrailnh to the more populous cent-rs. On thil subject he says: "I recommend that the present registration law be so amended that registration shall not be required ex cept in Incorporated cities and towns having a given population. It la to the litter places, the centers of population, where lawbreakers and malefactors con gregate that repeating and fraud are practiced and not in the remote precincts where every man knows his neighbor and a stranger is at once observed. I believe that It is an undue and unneces sary burden on the citizens to requlre him to register every time there is a general election. Having once registered that ought to be sufficient for at least six years." The Australian system of voting is Indorsed, some slight moddica tions of the present law being suggested. Other subjects considered are the World's fair, a liberal appropriation for a state display being suggested; protection of ranges and timber from fires; the sup presslon of lotteries and gift etderprises; matters pertaining to our judicial system, the expense of the constitutional conven. tion, etc. There is a wide scope of work mapped out for the legislature and the sixty days session will scarcely give time to dispatch one-half of it, even without the annoy. soae of the rump hoese with its five members who were never elected by the people. Ma. T. E. CotIIuse of this city has been slecteechairmau ot the democratic state entral committee, vice MIarcus Dnly re signed. Mr. Collins will f1ll the position acceptably to the purty and can be rornted upon to keep the democratic banner full high advanced. REPREBRwNTTnVa A % .AACE hso lotr,, duced a bill In the lioo- reducing the rate of Interest to -- 'er cent. where no other ra a same meapure ca al cou opn with op OUR MINERAL OUTPUT. Dr. G. C. Swallow, state inspector of mines, writes as follows to the ludepend eat, giving his estimate of the mineral output of the state for the year 1800: A ter a somewhat careful examination of various facts and reports, official and otherwise, respecting the yield of the I mines of Montana for the year 1890, the following appears to be a safe estimate for the whole output in gold, silver, lead anod copper: Beaverhead county..........: 2,000,000 Deer Lodge county ........... 8,000,000 I ergus county............... 50,00U0 IJefferson county ............. 8,500,000 Lewis and Clarke county..... 8,000,000 Madison county.............. 2,500,000 Megher county. ........ 800,000 Missoula county............. 0,000 Silver Bow county........... 8000,000 $49,500,000 If anyone has any figures or facts which show these estimates incorrect, it wonld be a service to the state and country to have them published and have these figures corrected. It is best for all to have them accurate. The free coinage of silver would increase this output of I our mines by at least 68,000,000. These estimates are doubtless within close line of the actual output and the speculation as to what free coinage of silver would do to promote the develop ment of our silver interests is not far out of the way, yet in the face of this fact, the fraudulent senators from this state voted against taking up the silver bill in the senate and Tom Power is kn',wu to be an enemy of free coinage. The people of Montana with one voice, and without regard to party, should sek this precious pair of senatorial frauds to resign their seats and give way to Montana men. Mn. ADOLPuH Ro.NBCH, the well known scout at Fort Shaw, Is in the city to in vestigate the reported depredations by the Cree Indians who are camped on Sun river, near this city. Mr. Roenach in forms the TtnIBUix that there are about five hundred of these refugees on the American side of the line and that they have several camps along the foot hills of the main range of the Rockiesbetween Great Falls and the Maridas. He says they are continually giving trouble to settlers and that some steps should be taken st once to prevent this. Inasmuch as they are refugees the government can not send them back to Canada, but he proper ly thinks something should be done to provide for them and to protect settlers: to whom they are a constant menace and asnoyagce. Mr. Roeusch thinks the: interior depart ment should be fully advised as tothesitu ation.end-'ist through Gov. Tuoni a re quest should be madetlanave these rov ing reds properly cared for. They might be placed on one of the reservations of the state and thus be pat under the direct control of the department. There is doubtless p!euty of room for them either at the Blackfoot or IBelknap agencies, and the sooner they are provided for by the government the better it will please the people of Northern Montana. se1aAxao of Mr. D dy'e retirement and the election of Mr. Collins to the chair manship of the democratic state central committee,the Independent says: "The sagacity he (Mr. Daly)displayed in forc ing the fight upon the lhues that most vi tally affected the people, his prompt rec ognition of the strength of MI. Dixon's candidacy, the quick intultion that led him to trust to the sense of justice among intelligent republicans to right the wrongs of last year-all these things malde democratic success possible in a campaign that to many democrats seemed almost hopeless. In resigniag the chairmanship Mr. Daly becomes no less a democrat and the party will enjoy for many years, we trust, the benefit of his experience and wise counsel, as it will always have his cordial support. In Mr. 1. E. Collins the state committee has secured a chairman worthy to succeed Mr. Daly. He is an able and segslouss business man, who has had long exper ience in politics and public affairs, nid brings to the duties of the office an ad mirable equipment for a successful ad ministration."' TnE action of the military audi es - in relieving Col. Forsythe of the sthi cavalry on the flimsy pretest thab il troops killed some sqtlaWs eIsilalt4am children in the fight at Wouidliliee is unwarranted and ontrageoge. The treachery of the Indians led tt that en gagement and under the cseumniestane the troops were wsratired in going to any extreme. If they had annihilated every.Iadisan in the vicinity they would have had the praise of the people of the weet who know something about this In dian business. We venture to say Col. Foreythe will be restored to his command without reprimand or dishonor. A par allel case weer.that of Col. Baker, who, after the massacre of Malcolm Clark, marched against the PLegans and wiped out an entire camp on the Marlas river. This battle practically put an end to Plegan wars and depredations, but in conformity to eastern sentimentality, Col. Baker was court martlaled for his part in that affair. He succeeded in vindicating himself, as will Col. Forsythe in the pres ent instance. Iv the Republicans o" Montana needed any further proof of Power's betrayal of the silver Interests, it was supplied by the encounter between the bucking broacho sod Beator Wolcott, Monday. Nu one doubts Wolcott's friendship for the metal and none can doubt his sin cerity or sbhlity on the question. Where, then, must Power stand on this issue when he opposes the Colorado senator so bitterly as to become involved in an altercation with him? Imagine the little old man from Montana strutting up to Wolcott and warning him that he would lose his reputation by his persist ent opposition to the republican gold bugs. It wse a scene to make every Montanian blush,and the reply of Wolcott that there was no danger of Power losing his reputatiot, as he had none to lose, will be applatded throughout the length sad breadth of the state.--Miner.

"Blind Tom" earned in his day over a half million dollars. To day he is comparatively a paupe -' " wonder is what benh - he me-, A WASHINGTON special says: The man agement of the Indian department is ad mittedly so inefflieunt as to be ridiculous. Assistant Commissioner Belt, who ham had the bureau in charge, is a painstaking man, but only knee-high to his recponal. bllities. Durinr the next two weeks at least three resolutions will lie introluced calling for athorough investigation of the Indian bureau, and an effort will be made to fix the responslhility of the present outbreak and disastroqs war upon some thing more tangible than a mere "ghost dance." The letter of Father Craft, the Wiest shot near Standing Rock, has cri ated a sensation, not only in congress, but in the war department as well. It provts that the Indian bureau is rotten and in. efficient, and so far as the Sioux are con cerned, has been a roosting place for cranks and corruptionists. THERn were, says the Independent, various rumors of compromise last eve ning but no offers were made on either side. The rumps were busy discussing the matter but the democrats gave the subject no attention. The republican proposition though not formally tendered is that all ten representatives from Butte. return and that the fifty remaining legis lators meet and organize, the speaker to be chosen by drawing lots and the ramano ing offices to be divided equally. Several republican senators discussed this pro posal last evening. The democrats say that in view of the fact that the legisla ture is organized they see no beneficial results in the acceptance of a proposition of this nature. THo colleagues and friends of Senator Hearst are much alarmed at his contin ued illness. He has now been ill severea weeks, and though there are occasic, rallies, his condition is not improved..
