To the Honorable the Senate of the United States and House of Representatives of the United States in Congress Assembled :
Whereas, The people of the territory point with an honest pride to the superior grade and high character of our common school system, and acknowledge their many obligations to the general government for the endowments of school lands therefore, yet, considering that the time is at hand when our educational facilities in the form of industrial schools are not sufficient to meet the demands of our school population, and that those school lands donated for such a purpose are not available at present.
And whereas, The Governor of the territory in his message to the present Legislature recommended to them, and urged upon them, that they memorialize Congress to at once donate to the territory the abandoned Fort Ellis Millitary Reservation, and all buildings thereon belonging to said post for the benefit of a school of mines, agriculture and merchanics arts.
And whereas, The buildings thereon, although of a temporary nature, might with some comparatively inexpensive slterations, be made to accommodate a corps of professors and several hundred students and become of untold benefit to the youth of this territor in affording to them opportunities and benefits of a higher education.
Your memoralists, the Council and House of Representatives, composing the legislative assembly of the territory of Montana, respectfully pray that you, the Congress of the United States, donate and grant to the territory of Montana, the said abandoned Fort Ellis military reservation for the uses and purposes as above set forth.
And our delegate in Congress for the territory of Montana is hereby requested to prepare and introduce the necessary bills in Congress, looking to the donation of such lands and the buildings thereon as prayed in this memorial; and also to take such other steps within his power as will prevent other disposition of such lands until such bills can be acted upon by Congress.
