The following was presented by Judge At
WHEREAS, The postmaster general has
been instrumental in having established a
iast mail traiu from the Atlantic cities to
Chicago, and the west and northwest, with
the laudable object of better accomodating
the business and people, which this board of
trade fully appreciates; and
Whereas, The present time of arrival of
the mail by this train in this city, which is 4
o'clock, Is so late that our bankers and busi
ness men do not have time to examine and
reply to letters by this late arrival, to go out
by the last eastern traiu, which leaves our
city at (7) o'clock in the evening; aud
Whereas, The time of arrival ot the East
ern moil train, leaving Chicago at nine (9) p.
m. which has heretofore brought the mail
from the Bast, and Chicago and all intermedi
ate stations, is at 3:10 p. in. or fifty minutes
earlier thau the fast mail; and
"Whereas, This board of trade has been
informed and believes, that more time is
now occupied in lnakingthc change iu Chi
cago than, with proper arrangements, is
necessary, and that the pleas for two hours
aud twenty-live minutes from the arrival to
the departure of the train in that city,
based upon the liability that the train may
frequently be late in Chicago is not Bound or
tenable, as it is a well known and as well
established fact, that a light train of four or
five cars having the right to the track, and
more especially where there is u double
track all the way from New York to Chicago,
:»t a speed of thirty-five miles per hour, des
ignated as iast—is not likely to be behind
time once iu a month. And further, if per
mitted this board would suggest that upon
arrival at Chicago instead of running the
cars into tbe depot, necessitating the hand
ling of all the mail on trucks from the cars
to the mail wagons, that the wagons be sta
tioned at some side track outside the depot,
where the cars cau stop and the mail be
placed, directly from the cars to the wagons,
which will save at least forty or fifty minutes,
Whereas, This board does not consider
the rate of 35 miles per hour—the present
speed of the train—on old and well settled
roads with steel rails and with trains of only
fchree to five ears and no stops as coming un
der the name of fast —that term uuder all the
circumstances, is a misuomcr, and
WHEREAS, This board is of the opinion that
all the importaut mail of bankers aud busi
ness men, in the city of New York, can be
collected and distributed at the post office iu
that city, so that the traiu could leave one
hour earlier, it is therefore
Resolved, By this board of trade, that the
houorable postmaster general is respectfully
aud earnestly requested to have itavestigatiou
made upon all points mentioned inthe above
preamble and cause tbe time of the- traiu to
leave New York oue (1) hour earlier and also
to shorten the delay in Chicago by another
hour, and to have the speed of. the train so
increased as to reach this city,
at oue (1) o'clock p. in., or as near that hour
Resolved, That a copy of ttw-se resolutions
be forwarded to General T»Vushburn, our
member of congress, with the urgent request
that he present them to the Hon. Postmaster
General, and urge the importauce and ne

represent that we are residents and business

THK P. P. LIEIX
Mayor Ames Interrieived Respecting the
GO Per Cent. Charge—Mr. Sullivan
The mendacious P. P. is consuming a
deal of space in lying about and maligning
.Mayor Ames. Yesterday it printed what it
claimed to be the history of the compromise
entered into by the gambling fraternity of
Minneapolis, whereby Fknnigan, Sullivan
and Noble received a certain per cent, of the
house run by Frank Shaw at 205 Nieollot
Yesterday a Gi.oue reporter waited upon
bis honor, the mayor, and secured the follow
"Doctor, have you read the Pioneer to
"Yes; I suppose you refer to that attack
upon me regarding the gambling matter."
"Yc6, doctor; are the statements made
"The alligation that I went into Shaw's
gambling rooms with Sullivan is a lie; the
implication that I had anything whatever to
do, directly or indirectly with the comprom
ise which i"s said to have been affected be
tween Shaw, Sullivan, Planning and Noble
is also false. I never heard of the sixty per
cent, arrangement until they were pub
lished recently in the papers.
The only thing I ever said to Shaw was sub
stantially this: I met him in a hotel and he
said he had made up his mind to open a
gambling house in Minneapolis, aud wanted
to know what sort of a show he would have.
I replied: "You or anybody else have just as
good right as the people who are said to be
gambling here. No one has any exclusive
right to commit a wronif in this city, and I
shall hold them amenable to the law. They
are liable to be pulled at anytime. Shaw
came to me after he had been here for some
time and made complaint that the other
nam biers had made demands upon him, and
asked for protection. I told him in emphatic
terms that the gamblers must settle their own
quarrel-, and furthermore, if tbe embroglio
should attract too much notoriety I should
take prompt cognizance in my official capac
ity. It seems that this reply was not satis
factory and he is nowtrying to get revenge."
The reporter next met Mr. Sullivan aud
asked him about the /'. P.'s charge that he
had entered Shaw's gambling house iu com
pany with the mayor. He replied:
"There is not" a word of truth in it; I
never visited the house with Dr. Ames, and
furthermore, I never saw him in the place
"Did you ever have a conference with him
respecting this sixty per cent division of the
"Never, this is all gotten up as a piece of
spite work against Dr. Ames.,"

COEUR D'ALENE MINES.
the Place to Leave the
Railway for Eagre City.
Coelk d'Ai.knk Mines, )
March 1, 1S84. f.
To the Editor of tbe Globe.
You are having so many conflicting stories
regarding the mines, the prospects and the
best methods of reaching these mines, that I
am constrained to give you my own personal
experience, iu tbe hope that those about to
start for this section may profit thereby. I
may say that any and all statements herein
made can be relied upon and vouchers of un
doubted credibility easily obtained.
The trip over the Northern Pacific railway
will be one of pleasure, provided you start in
the right spirit and provided for the trip—
not with spirits—(for if they are a part of
your necessaries you can buy them very
much cheaper at home) but with blankets
enough to keep you warm, and good plain
food enough to last you six days.
The Northern Pacific railroad management
provides good clean bunks and cooking facil
ities in each of their emigrant cars, au 1 ele
gant sleeping and diuiug cars for those
whose means or inclination prefers that
mode of travel.
The part most to be considered is, to the
man goiug to "the miues"—where shah I
leave the railroad 1 Which of the many of
the so called trails shall 1 take? To answer
this question the writer will simply offer his
own observations and leave it to the intend
cd prosptetor, miner or speculator to deter
mine each for himself.
The first town on our route to which par
ticular attention is called in its connection
with the mines is Thompson's Fall's. Here
we find quite a collection of new buildings,
and others iu the way of construction. It
certainly is a busy scene, but the forbidding
aspect of the background, a stately wall of
mountains, suggests and a few well directed
questions, elicit the information that freight
or baggage can only be transmitted
to the mines by hand, on small
sleds, toboggans, or "Killdevils" as called
by those who use them. Freight to the object
of our tramp is forty cents a pound. This
settles it, and we move on to the much talk
ed of Belknap. We finally manage to see it
among the stumps, and really it is a credit to
the perseverance of its projectors, for the
trees have been so thick and the snow so
deep when the chopping was done that the
stumos now. in the decavinir staees of the
snow, look like an army of solid guards
against any form of easy locomotion. We
decided to get off and start our trip here, but
desisted, happily in time, for the most excru
ciatingly funny sight of the trip to us was a
view of two able bodied men—one iu harness,
the other with a pole—between them a "to
boggan," a poor little sleigh with perhaps a
hundred pounds of a load on it, both using
their best effort to get it along through the
mud, for alas, this is the state of the trail —
deviate from it and you are either lost in the
snow or inextricably en tangled in fallen trees.
We stayed on the train. Trout creek we
passed, as there was no one visible lor
whom to glean any information, though
this is, I believe, the last of the Mountain
tracts. But so far no houses nor mules
have succeeded in crossing, ami it gets
worse every day. Learning that the Cceur
D'Alene lake was about open, aud a boat
already launched. I stopped at Rathdrum
and found it a town of good, solid bu^ine-<
men. From here a ride by s'.aire of eleven
miles brings us to the Lake, which, long
before this is before my readers, will be
daily traversed by boat to the mines. Here,
too, I found pack trains of horse aud :.
who would take freight to Eagle City for
twenty-five cents a pound—a saving of three
hundred dollars per ton, and here 1 Stopped.
We found, too, a good hotel at two dollars a
day with good beds aud good meals,
and hope ere this reaches you to be among
the "diggers for gold." Among the late
notes from the coveted region are that the
new saw mill steamed up on the 27th and
operations began in active mining mi the
widow's claim on the 25th. The mill is two
miles from Eagle City and lumber has drop
ped from three hundred dollars per thousand
feet to eighty dollars..
For the benefit of those coming this way I
will add that a wagon road from any of the
points on the mountains is for this year an
impossibility. Eleven miles from Rathdrum
by stage ami thirty-two from Spokane Falls
place you ou the steamer, Now Heady. The
extra twenty-one miles of ride over rough
road and crossing creek will, 1 think, cause
Rathdrum to be ••the point." M. A. C.

Lewiston, I. T., April 3. —Having pa
through more than the ordinary vicissitudes
of frontier town-, Lewiston, the first capital
of Idaho Territory, has reached a solid basis
—in my opinion, if tbe sanguine hopes of
its founders, entertained twenty years ago,
have uot been aud never may be realized,
tbe inevitable croaker of that infantile
period (uo doubt the Garaen of Eden would
have been represented by a croaker If tbe
population had been about one greater) ■ baa
likewise been disappointed in bis lugubrious |
predictions. Though the population now I
hardly reaches a thousand, all bins of busi j
nessare well sustained, 'and growth is steady
and healthy. With railroad communication I
for which there is a prospect, Lewiston would
be almost sure to spring forward to some-I
thing akin to, ami it might be surprising
ber by-gone greatness, when she was the '
seat of territorial government and tin-trail
ing centre for several highly productive
placer camps —still producing a little gold.
Is few a miles above the Clear water Fork of
the Snake River, and is reached by the Col
umbia river boat when the water is at its
highest stag. This is the only means of com
munication, except by stages and freight
terms. Hut their are some excellent farm
ing lands surrounding aud within easy tread
ing distance of tbe place, and a vast extent
of unsurpassed grazing lands—the former
susceptible of varied cultivation, and tbe
latter affording ample subsistence to herds
throughout the winter season. Probably the
oldest and largest apple trees on the Pacific
Coast are within ten miles of Lewiston, the
seeds having been brought in over forty
years ago by the veteran missionaries Spald
ing and Whitman, who first planted the
cross of Christianity, on the Protestants side
of the question, among the tribes of Upper
Columbia. Their fruitful labors were per
formed among the Nez Percys. There is
now I am told, a large surplus of grain in the
country—the bread demand being supplied,
audit beingnnprofitable to ship at tbe pre
sent high tranportation rates. Railroad com
munication would Immensely increase grain
production, resulting In a proportionate in
crease, of all kinds of bread business, and
this might redoun to the advantage of the
business men of Minneapolis and
St. Paul, as it Will be their own

s of course the all-observing matter of inter

be the general feeling that they will be flrsl

Line but they have hopes, if they have not re
ceived promises, from the Oregon Railway A:
Navigation Company, lt is a fact that the
Northern Pacific lias bad appended or Influ
encing its management a town-building com
bination. I would Buggest that the sooner it
was shaken off the better it would be for the
general interests of stockholders. While the
extension of a branch to Lewiston might
be a temporary if not a permanent cloud
over tbe prospects of certain rival town.-, it
would certainly result iu adding to tbe com
pany's resources a large extent of valuable
It is urged lure —aud I think your readers,
upon examining the subject, will say with
sound reasoning—that Congress Bbouldcarve
anew territory out of .Montana and Idaho be
fore considering the policy of admitting either
as a state, it is well known by nil who took
part in, or are posted in regard to, the ar
guments advanced in favor of the organiza
tion of Idaho, and immediately after that of
Montano, that the lines as they now stand
were never intended to be permanent. Idaho
first embraced all of .Montana. Almost si
multaneously with the pai isage of the organ
ic act of Idaho, gold was discovered in and
there was a great rush of immigration,
to what is uow Montana.
It was then ascertained that, for topo
graphical reasons, the functions of civil gov
ernment could not be exercised over all this
vast territory—extent aud topographical
conditions made judicial control impractic
able. The main range of the Rockey moun
tains, with the rugged Salmon river spur, al
most unexplored, were i iu passable barriers
by any known direct rout.- between the min
ing camps, then the objective points of emi
gration and still are. Stringing up roughs
aud highway men by the dozen out in Mon
tana, by popular tribunals was an argument
in power of establishing regular courts as
speedily as possible that could not be an
swered. And so the territory of .Montana
was brought into existence upon the spur of
the moment and to meet exigencies of a
purely temporary character. Ripping Idaho
from north to south in this summary way,
she being delivered of Montana by a sort of
Cseserine operation, has made her a kind of
geographical monstrosity on the map. Be
low u little shriveled ankle running up to the
British liue is tbe club-footed exti lit of Idaho
territory; it is sever al hundred miles south
ward alon^' and over rugged ranges. From
the Cieur D'Alene country, the present great
objective poiut of emigration to Boise City,
the territorial capital. The judicial and oth
er inconvenciences of a public character are
as great in tbe present condition of affairs
as they were before Montana was set off.
SOMKTUINO MUST BE DONE.
How would it do to extend tbe northern
boundary of Wyoming westward to the Ore
gon line for the southern boundary of North
ern Idaho, with the crest of the Rocky moun
tains for her eastern line? The congressional
pruning-knife shall certainly be applied to
give this geographical monstrosity aud polit
ical impracticability a better appearance
among her neighbors and a freeer breathing
position. It must be done now or never, as
state boundaries, without state consent, are
beyond congressional control.
