In tho Supreme Court of tbe United
States ex-Attorney-General Garland
asked the court to advance for hearing
the appeal of the Northern Pacific Kail
road Company vs. J. L. Patterson, Treas
urer of Gallatin conntv, Mont., from the
Montana Supreme Court. The proposi
tions contained in this case involve ulti
mately the question of the taxability of

Californitt and Oregon. Oregon and

Pacific and all other various land grants
made bv Congress to aid in the construc
tion of railroads. These lands now
mount in the case of the Northern Pa
cific grant almie to over 17,000,000 acres,
an area rapidly increasing as th surveys
are farther extended. The area of lands
in the same condition included in simi
lar grants will more than double this.
These lands are to be fonnd in almost
every State west of the Mississippi, and
their taxability has been one of the great
sources of revenue in those States. The
Southern Pacific Company, controlling
the land grants of that road, of the Cen
tral Pacific, Oregon and California and
California and Oregon, refuses to pay
taxes upon unpatented portions of those
grants. The States along the line of the
Northern Pacific have sustained the
claims of tbe County Treasurers, and tax
tbe lands within their jurisdiction ; and
the railroad company comes to the Su
preme Court for relief.
The report of Brigadier-General Will
iam P. Carlin, commanding the military
department of the Columbia, which in
cludes the States of Oregon, Washington
and a part of Idaho and the Territory
of Alaska, has been received at the War
Department. The General devotes a
largo part of his report to urging the
necessity for the abandonment of some
small posts in the department because
of their inaccessibility and the estab
lishment of largor posts in place of them
at points near the railroad and the large
cities and towns. General Carlin re
commends tbe discontinuance of Fort
Spokane, Wash., and the construction
of a post near Spokane. Fort Town
send, lie says, is useless to protect the
cities and harbors of Pugot Sound, and
he thinks the garrison should be re
moved to some important point. One,
if not two, points in addition to these
named could, in General Carlin's opin
ion, be abandoned with advantage to the
government. Fort Canby, at tbe
month of the Columbia river, would be
of great importance in time of war with
a naval power, but it is inaccessible in
winter, and only a small garrison is re
quired there in time of peace. Fort
Stevens, on the opposite or southern
side of the river, is also a point of great
importance, and General Carlin urges
that it be strongly fortified. General
Carlin reports that desertions in the de
partment of the Columbia showed an In
crease during tbe year. He says that
the attempt to enlist a company of In
diana resulted in a failure.
