TI1E COUNTY SKAT QUESTION'.
Th? Butte Inter-Mountain, wliicli is
lint pleased over liio tie itmer.t oi the
! terii'.oii-s by the democratic president,
| thus welcomes his new appointee:
‘Governor Leslie liaa atrived in Helena
from his Kentucky home. As a tourist,
as an intending investor, as a miner, as
i s -ttler, or as a visitor in any other
private capacity, the people of Montana
would exten t him a generous welcome;
>nt inasmuch as lie com-‘s to rule over
l(> >,0 )0 people wlcr have been allowed
to h ive no voice in Ids selection, lie
may as well he informed that w hat hos-
pitabty lie may receive will lie extended
with mental reservations. To the curse
of earpotbagisin is attributed every evil
bat .iltiicts the south. Yet the southern
poliiu ians are ever ready to subject the
territories to the same indignities as
they charge against the northern carpet-
baggeis. Governor Leslie is a con
spicuous illustration of this inconsisten
cy and while tlie Iuter-Moutdain is in
spired bv no ill will towards tins gover
nor personally, it takes this occasion to
let him know that in the estimation of
lie people of Montana, his nomination
is regarded as an outrage, and tl:at his
efus.il of the office would h ivo been ex
ceedingly eieditable to his good taste.”
It goes without saving that the Lili
which lias been pending before tho p es
ent session of the leg tlatnre, asking that
body to grant to tho citizens of this
county the right to vote upon the ques
tion of relocating the county seat, was
by far the mo.-t iinpoitant art of the
session, in tho eve i of our |K?ople. It
has long been tho desire ot a majority
of Yamhill county's citizens to vote up
on this question and nunieions attempts
have been made bef- re to secure the
light, but without success. Now that
the bill has passed both houses, and on
ly awaits tho signature of the governor
to become a law, it seems Jhat the mat
ter will be detlnitely settled at last. The
voters of this county petitioned tlie leg
islature to grant theiri the right to vole
upon this question; at a special election
in June, lint as a bill had already passed
that honorable body, causing a special
election to be held in November to vote
upon other important measures, the
County seat bill was amended in tiie sen
