HATUNIDAY. AU(OUST h 41891. T'11E J.11.L NERlI'CE. If there is anything on this side of the unkllown beyond which tries men's souls an(dhlleasures their capacity for enduring public evils it is the supremely wretched mail service that the people of north l1,,tana have endured during tih two past years and which they still endure. '1'They have petitioned. protested, watchedund prayed; threatened and kicked. and linally4 quietly yielded and grinned and bore it. L But at times the old Adan: in their nature could become aroused by some fresh outrage, and again the fuming and swatting, the kicking and cursing would Ibe renewed and then dropped for a season. If postmaster Wanamaker be held responsible for all the sins committed by reason of the nmost diabolical mail service he gives the people of this section of the state it would appear to the ungodly that the whole plan ,of salvation would be ex hatusted in saving him.

MOnoRGAN' ATTITU(,DE. When a man can place himlself so as to please two opposing parties and at the saime time not compromise himself with the either, such a man is a politician of the first water and at his death should be for emnbualmne, put away as were Egyptian elniummiies, alnd preserved for future ref erence. Commlissioner Morgan of the e Indian bureau in the interior department is the man. In yesterday morning's dis patches as they appear in the T''neLlsI: of that date it appears that Cardinal and (iibbons relquested the archblish6p of Hit. nd Paul to visit Morgan. The result of the interview is contained in what the car d' (linal repeated to the reporter who in terviewed him. lie said that Morgan alnd rn received the archbishop most kindly and gave him ample and positive assurance of his disposition and intention to treat he the Catholic Indian schools with equality and generosity. tie promised that all of it last year's contracts shall be continued, te and furthermore, in view of new applica tions recently made to him, he is, he said, appropriating tile additional sum of $10, Slriover and aibove the amounts hereto fore assigned for the support of the Cath Solic Indlian schools.

A In view of the heavy hipt ents of cat- f thi from Montana to the Chicago market. t induced and stimulated by the prevaily k e ing high prices, the following from the e Drovers' Journal of recent date may be a of interest to cattlemen of north Mon- b tana. "Northwestern stockmen should ti not be in too great a hurry to send in gi their cattle. There is ample time, but by t crowding the market they may defeat at the very object which they wish to en- de joy. The range never was in better con- n dition and the quality of the cattle never so goerx. When prime fat steers sell at di 81.40 per hundred higher than a year of ago it gives a splendid marginal profit at and no doubt much satisfaction to the it owner and shows the benefit of raising fu the quality to a first class grade. ,o ti long as it is la sible ranchumen should cc feed the market slowly and thereby keep se the prices at a i.,nt where, they can 'get dt even' for losses sustainld in timns of l( tic pressign." l'' Ils & Co.'s weekly review of trade is not f thl lllmost riteate hue.

In thle ft(.,e of thet primuisee('s madeiih hby the' McKinleyites last winter the pres ent condition of tralde throughout the country presents itself in thel fo rm of an indictment against a high protective policy.

Wu\'E: republican newspapers g't through nominating andl olecting a da(1l. ocratic speaker for the next house of rep resentatives, the dilenocrats will take a hand and finish the business. Yet they gratefully acknowledge the kind services of their republican friends for clearing up all the preliminary work.

II CARTER'S TIMBER RULING. as Land Commissioner Carter's rules and the regulations governing the cutting of tim ith ber upon the public domain are matters the of grave concern, not only to the people he of Montana, but to the residentsof every ian other state and the territories contlining ef- timber upon government lands to which he they apply. As their true inwardness mnt become better understoolI the concern lis- deepens and is finding expression in pro Ni: testations and lpetitions for their revoca ial tion or moditication. Carl Schurz was Kt. considered unjust in his enforcement of he the timber laws; Sparks was regarded as or- a crank in his views upon the matter, in- but Mr. Carter has made them appear as an beonofactors to the people of the west by nd his ill considered, or purposely conceived, ce or, in either event, eminently unjust at rules and regulations. Neither Schurz's ty officiousness, which, for a time, embar of rassed the small woodchopper, nor d, Sparks' unreasonable demands, which a- were directed against the large opera id, tors, seriously injured any industry of I,- the country. Timber for domestic, agri o- cultural and mining purposes was cut h- right along as usual upon public lands of and the eutter of cordwsol went about his business without let or hinderance. in But the enforcement of Mr. Carter's t rules and regullltions will work a colm ip plete revolution in the mutter of cutting n. tilller upll)on governmllent llands fIor any n- purisem whatever. The simll, single i handted w nn, wlt ho has heretofore i" emu~ to the nmountains, cut a loud of fire, wooal, taknii it to town and sold it to, the, 3y l'(chIlnlie. lbusiness min, oIr (day) -IIlaborer, n- monl with lthe 'proe.IIs of the sMale pur l, ch-Ild i, few family necessaries will lind r his avocatiton glone. And thlse, s1u1 I tull-lauborers, lIllchllanllcs, alnd busiessH- I IIl 1( uslllt look elsewheilre for their stove g wool. Now let us see ifi the Tulnm ..' is s not quite1 right in this promo,sitill. Ilule I . of the s(erlis says: I Settlers upon the public lands, miniers, farmers, aUld1 othier I ona-tidie residentsI int ither of tile states, district or territory lInaed ill this act who have not suflicilent t insupply or tim,.r on their own claims or lands for firewo.ol, fencing, or building Jpurosmes, or for necessary use in dievellop ing the mineral or other natural re I uurces of the lands olwneld or occuplied by thel, are permitted to seculre tillllr t I from thl public lands strictly for the pur I pxses enumerated in this section, but ,Llt for mdt- ortldial,otul or "ism, o other litn CI or by! other jprman t. It d(lss not require one learned in the (I law to interpret the meaning of this rule. Il First, parties passing through the state, not being bona-Iide residents thiereof, are liable to arre'st for trespass if they cut ti timbeilr for an((y1 purpose upon the public oI domain. Hiecond, bona-tide residents p ean not sell, dispos+e of, or give away a foot of lumber or a stick of cordwoodxl cut upsn the public domain unless authority to cut such lumber or firewood be granted by the secretary of the interior. Again, every day-laborer, every mechanic, and every business man in Great Falls, or in ti any other city or town in the state, will be liable to arrest and prosecution for trespass if he purchase or accept as a gift such lumber or firewood unless the seller or donor has a permit to procure such lulmer or firewoodxl from the public a domain. That is the true intent and ly meaning of Rule 4. ly This, however unjust to eivery resi- m dent in the state, is not the principal th objection to Mr. Carter's timber rules and regulations. The result--whether fa it ie the object or not of their strict en forcenment will be the turning over of all tile available timber lands in the state t, lat corporations and mlonolpolies. Iett us s(ee how this will Ie lone. It is a won- ha lderfully adll fearfully drawn rule ani su that thel reiers may grasp its full th lehgtlh and breadth it is giv,.n entire at be the smcrific, of SpiU.,: . . I iule 1;. I'eriHills , tiriis ir colrliorationis I rsidling ini either of the states., listrict I or territory namedI in this lit, who desire . to rocullre permnliiiion to rut or rlemlove liiituber fromat pubtlic lands for purposis of sale or traflil or to lnnIflileture the Slilni iito lumber orr other timber prod llt us an larticle of miircfhiindise, ior. for Soiie lis i./ dllItir r ofther thin as defitned in seltinllH 2, :1 alnd 4 of these rules anlld regulations, must first submiiit an appli. I cation therefor, in writing, to the secri. tary of the interior, ldesiginating the land Sby sectllion, township and range if siu' veoyld, and, if unsurvoeyed, lescribing the lands by natural boundaries and thec estimated nllumber of iacres therein. They must also detine the character of the land and the kinds of trees or timber growing thereon, giving an estimate as to the quantity of each kind. stating what particular kind or kinds they desire authority to cut or rem.,ove and the npcifoil purplss or puromses for which the tilber or the prodluct ihirre.if is re quired. The application must ibe sworn to, and witnessed by not less than four reliablie and responsible citizens of the state, listrict or territory in which the land is situated, and who reside in the lIcality of the particular land descrtled. It should be stated that rules 2 and :1 provide that the laws of March :1, 1875, andl of June 3, 1878, which authorize railroad cornpanies to cut timber for construction purplses and which author izo the cutting of timber for building, agricultural, nining and other domestic purposes from public lands which are known to be mineral, are no way en larged by this act, but remain in force subjuect to the rules and regulations pre senbed thereunder by the secretary of the interior. Rule 4 appears above. Rule l bears an innocent look but I never did ws few words contain so much a for the people of Montana to fear. It I virtually given a few men the monopoly I of all the timber which can he reached I in the state. There is no limitation as to c the number of acres a man or a company O of man may apply for, nor Is there aI limit to the time a man or a company l may hold the lands applied for. For in stance, a huge corporation may apply for (d permission to cut over 1,000,000 acres of ii lands and if granted it may be ninty rs nine years in procuring what it wants. le In the meantime neither miner, nor ry farmer, nor anyone else who needs lum 1g her or tirewooxl can cut and remove a ,h single foot of timber from the lands thus 56 virtually granted to the corporation. rn That is a legitimate construction of the e- rule. When a body of timber lands are a- turned over to a corporation or toagive n 15 number of men for the purpose of cut of ting a given number of feet of lumber; ae a given number of feet of mining timbers sr, and a given number of cords of wood for Hs sale that corporation or men virtually iY hold the title to all the timber upon the d, designated lands until the specified st quantity of lumber and mining timbers 's and number of cords of w(ood be cut, if r- it take an indefinite number of years to r cut it. Nothing can be plainer. h As may be teen by the rule there is a - great deal of red tape to be unwound, 'f and the circumlocution office must ,. '- well explored before the common wtswl. it chopper can gain permission to cut tim is ber upon government lands. Few, if it any, will take the trouble or go to the ex pense of obtaining the necessary papers g and witnesses and attend to the publics tions incideint toupplications. Very few, g if any, of the men who supply families Y and business men generally with their firewonl will do it. That business will Is. lilt to those who iobtain at perlit, or, in otheir words. the imonoll,,ly of the tiu Iher. It doesn't rt'uiroe a prophelltic eye to see whaIt II ruiical change in the iin - a-r of obtaining lummber anl fuel sup 1 plices it will lead to,and to what disadvan tage( onsluieris of those (lrticler will Ibe .hlready the alarm has been sounhded at Butte. Mill t-en and tinmber con SHItmers gener'ally have grasped the full iteaning of the rules and have joined in spetitions to the interior departllment for their resciinding. T'hoTltli'u-Ns referred to the matter a few days ago, but its im portance will nut permit the press of the I state to preserve long continueid silence ulsin it. The 'l'TliiNll.: holdls there is not a more threatening danger to the in terests, the industries and the prlosperity I of Montana than is contained in Mr. I Carter's rules and reL'ulationis governing 1 the cutting of timber upon the public domain. U nder thenm it is possible to i lock up every fsoot of tinmber in the state f fronm the nlasses of the people. And what is possible to be done in this direc- I tion is dangerous to the highest interests of the state and the welfare of the pl,- - pie. The rules and regulations should a be moditied or rescinded altogether. C As A straw which shows the way the p financial wind is blowing in Great Falls ii the Tm'sim:n will note the fact that c $175,000 are monthly paid to employese p and contractors through the First Na- I tional bank of this city. This amount p does not include the sums paid employee o in business firms in the city. The a T'uiln'ss is not advised of the amounts n paid by the other banks. Large sums e are doubtless paid. It would not be ti surprising to learn that the city's month- s1 ly pay roll reaches over a quarter of a w million dollars. This would be a fair n pay roll when the fact is borne in mind tr that the real industries of the place are either in embryo or in their extremeu in fancy. Mua. UCA.:tI'va tillmber rules and regu r lations will Iput every acro of the avail 1 able timber lands in the state into the - hands of a few men and 'compel con Ssuitners to buy all timber prodlucts from themli. No less lumber or mining tin SIlers or firewoodi will be used by the peo ple than formuerly. T'i'lhe mountains will Sbe denudedui.I of thelir trees as usual and the governelteent will not receive one cenit Sfor stumpage. lIn view eof tlhose plain f facts the TaIIuNIe. fails to seeC leow the , forests will be better preservedl under s Mr. Carter's rules than under the old I customl which permitted anly andl every I resident of the state tocut or to purchal e such timber proelucts as he wanteld. M-l. Il HIi i 'W.nr:rrea.seN feelIs called upon to give ( rover Cleveland a little advice. It is, however, very question able advice. It may require a Watter r son to see whern the "disgrace"comese in. The average man will fail to see it. But here is what Watterson says: Of course it would not be right for G(trover Cleveland to make speeches in the Ohio car vass, and we take it for a granted that he has not the least idea of doing anything of the kind. It would be disgraceful. indeed, to see an ex-presi cdent of the United States going about s making partisan speeches in a heated and more or less dirty political cam paign. The bare suggestion is discredit able to those who make it. THee: following from the Montana .Democrat will not be reproduced by our very eminently ipcorrect, but esteemed, I evening contemporary: "The Great Palls TmnrIUE: is, in every respect, the leading newspaper of Mon tana. Its editorials are brilliant and in structive, and ts aggresmive democracy I is indeed admirable. ANrNT the report that ex-Preesident Cleveland will not speak in Ohio. It may not be out of place to observe that Mr. Blaine will not explain to the farmers of that state how it happens that the Mu KiLley monstrosity will not furnish a market for a bushel of wheat or a barrel t of pork. The Maine statesman could a not have chosen a better time to be "un- tl der the weather." p in- LIBERTY OF TIIE PRESS. for of The question as to the legal right of a ty- court of this state to require an editor Its of a newspaper published in it to give ior the namle of an informant or corre m- spondent is one which involveantho liberty a of the press quite as deeply as any other. us If the laws of the state can be tortured n. into the conferring of that right the he press of Montana cannot too soon or too ire often denounce the law and contend for cn its repeal or modification. Of course an at- editor should be held amenable for his Br; utterances through the columns of the rs journal over which he has control. He or may occasionally make mistakes; so do Ily :ourts and juries. The editor writes he mm his expressions or his knowledge of ed facts. He may err in the one or be im irs posed upon in the other. In either case if the law as it is read and interpreted by to some courts punishes him for his mis take in judgment, or for his reliance up a on an unfaithful informant or corre l, spmndent. A jury may convict and a I, judge may sentence an innocent man to d. imprisonment or to death. But there is u- In law to punish either for accepting cir if Iumstantial evidence as a fact or the x testimony of increditable witneseee as ,rs true. Talk about interferring with the a- course of justice! Editors never hang w, men nor send them to the penitentiary. ns And how can the course of justice he ir more gravely or more fatally interfered ill with than when innocent men be judi ir, dully murdelred upon the gallows or i consigned t, dungeons for lifer ye .,e courts, tho)uglh cIIimposed of com m- oom clay, are fearfully and wonderfully I I. iwadei inl ore sensl n thlin olne. Somlle oif I th(lUe are iilabnormally thin-skinned and I sensitive. None are infallible, anI yet they are apt to predicate proccedings I i against editors upmn grounds which pre, i- supnpos that courts can do no wrong, 11 intentionimly or otherwise. It is true I that IInewspapelrs should not directly or ir indirectly imleach(h the integrityofcourts f or say ought that will impair the con 7 lidlence of the public in them. A judge e e may be a drunkardI ori a gambler or a II bribe-taker or ia horse-thief, but it is as- L slsunmde that a newspaper will remain l silent until suchli timei as the ermine. I a 7 taken from his unworthy shoulders by c time or due course of law. In the mean- $ tiime the voice of an indignant people, e which shoull findl expression in the col ~ unans of their press, is stifled because d k forsooth the law holds a clenched hand ' l over the editor who (lare reflect upon the b integrity of the court. s5 In these remarks the TaIUNEi: speaks it of things as they may be not as they 01 are. It refers to the position the press of the state occupies in the light of w recent events, and intimates what that hi B position may become if the law govern- w ming the responsibility of the press to the tr t courts shall admit of the interpretation sa e placed upon it by the Butte court. The uj - TIaniNE holdls that the liberty of the press in Montana is at stake in the issue Sof the McKnight contempt case and while it would not say one word that may be tortured into disrespect to any I court it nevertheless believes that the h time has come for the newspapers of the state to take issue with any law or ruling in which will compel any editor to give the name of his informant or correspondent to any court upon God('s green earth. Coxi i:MIINI; the much-talked-of wheat corner the Pittsburg Dispatch has the following: "A very plausable foundation for the prop.med wheat corner is indicated by the fact that Mr. Pillsbury of the great milling syndicate is talking wheat up very strongly, with the information that tie syndicate is hothling a big load in the elevators. If farmers van be in ducd to hold back the new crop the d milling syndicate will Is able to unload t the flour Iade froIm the wheat at high pricrres, after which the farmers carn shift n for thiemIelve.
