The session lust closed nas been one remarkable for the number of bills introduced, for the small number passed, for the many oratorical battles, for the great eiforts made by the gover nor to promote certain legislation, for the strong attacks made on railroads and nfliftr onrnnrations: for the success of the power of the 8250.000,000 public ser vice lobby; for the largest appropria tions made in the history of the state,and for the singular facts that the legislature as originally assembled, was absolutely a Placing a stamp tax of 2o cents on each transaction in "futures' on boards of trade.

Our county court was a busy set of men last week, and besides stirring up a little excitement, they did a large amount of business, among which was the taking of the annual inventory of the poor farm which usually consumes some 12 to lo hours. It is gratifying in deed t-j note that this institution is most admirrtbly conducted, and Super intendent Orson has in every way proven a decided success in his manage ment of the couuty infirmary. The in voice for the year ending March 1, 1907, shows the value of all property to be 34,617.06, which is an increase of 8749.98 over that of 1906. In February the court requested Mr. W. M. Morris to make an examination of the books of retiring Couuty Clerk, Enoch A. Welty, and to make report to that body at the March term. The in vestigation was to cover the amount of fees handled by him as provided in the tatutes, nod also to show the amount as reported by him to the county court, and the amount turned into the county treasurer by him. As we understand the law, it- provides that all fees over nd above the salary of the clerk and hi3 deputy, shall be paid into the county and Tarkio trains will have to be run on Sundiiy -that is of course.if ths railroad company feels so disposed.
