THE LEWISTON TELLER.
CITY AND COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER. The TELLER hue the largest rirrulation of any paper in .\orlh Idaho. THURSDAY.......................APRIL 6 1882 NO STATE ADMISSION. In the Constitutional Convention in IS78, Judge Larrabee ami (M. Itiailshsw, lk:le gatea from the Sound, opposed the pruponi tion to include the three northern conn ties of Idaho within the boundaries of the pro powd State of Washington, on the ground that it would provoke hostility from Idaho and other Territories similarly situated and prevent our admission probably for a num ber of years. Subseijuout events prove them to have been true j.rophi ta. This was ac knowledged at the time by some of the op position members of the convention, but who averred it lie iter to stay out of the Union awhile longer than to go in without these counties. Home of the western Delegates headed by l-arraW energetically opposed this theory, but they were in the minority and these counties were included in the boundaries as defined by the first article of the constitution. All of the eastern Dele gases, irrcs[>ectivc of party, warmly sup ported this annexation, avowedly for the reason that these thrrn counties naturally belonged to this Territory and would in crease our population and wealth—two im portant considerations to form a State Gov ernment, and secretly, as the real Motive for their earnest ami united action, the in creased dominion of Kastern Washington to he socured, thus drawing the geographical center of the new State near Walla Walla, also the center of the imputation, and there by give to that section a preponderance in the Legislature and controlling voire in con ventions and at the polls. This is still tin theory of Air. Hrents, and the hill shorn of these three counties as reported by the com mittee stands almut the same show of pass ing as would a bill to admit Alaska for the reason that Mr. Hrents' will op|H>se the bill id its present shape. Northern Idaho has become the Imnc of contention. It will probably keep Washington out of the Union for several years longer than it might have been had our Territorial boundary lieun al lowed in the beginning to become the limits •f the proposed State. However, a Delegate from Western Washington will probably take Mr. Brents' jilace in the House next year and then W ashington Territory may rave a Delegate in Congress instead of an agent for Northern Idaho and Kasten. Washington.-- Olarke County Reg it 1er. In reading tho above one can form but an iudeûnite conception of the mo live that prompts the writer to relate his narrativo of mattem in the oonven tion of 1878, unless it be that he is opposed to North Idaho's coming into tho new State. Hrents complains that this same paper has dono him injury iu securing the leportofthe commit toe favorable to including North Idaho. It is true that Larrabee and Bradshaw did oppose these northern counties in the convention, pretending that they wen not opposed to including them it they could be included. But tho gen eral belief of the convention was that the real motive of their objection waa that it would give the balance of pow er in the Statu to the people east of the Cascades and defeat the ambition of these gentlemen for posiiions under the new State Government. The majority of the convention regarded the includ ing of these counties of great import ance to the welfare of all of Washing ton, and a matter of justico to the people of North Idaho who were so is olated from the southern part of Idaho in all the relations of life. The Reg ister is mistaken when it says that the •astern Delegates secretly desired this, with the chief motive of increased do minion of Eastern Washington and to draw the geographical center of the 8tate near Walla Walla and give to the East a preponderance in the Legis lature and a controlling voice in con ventions and at the polls. The people •f Washington both East and West by thrnr Legislature, invited North Idaho to take part in the convention with a view to including these counties, and to have framed a constitution leaving these counties out, would have done violence to the act of the Legislature authorizing a convention. Tho consti tution adopted with its boundaries was what the people asked for, both io Washington and North Idaho, and to lave denied this at the instance of two members of the convention would have been usurpation on the part of tho Delegates, and the ad >ption of the con stitution by so largo a vote shows that the Delegates had'the approval of the people, and the farther fact that Walla Walla county stood almost alone in opposing the adoption with the boun daries made to indu le North Idaho •hows that the adoption of these coun ties in the convention, was not done to give the preponderance of power in tavor of Walla Walla ss a centre. The Register man is all ott* in his insinua tion*, and devolopcs the animus of his miad wheis he suggests that Western Washington will send s Delegate in place of Brents nest year who will not be an agent of North Idaho and East en» Washington, and shows himself to I • the sectional wan instead of the Delegates who olieycd the voice of the whole people, and had their act fully ratified by the people. Mr. Register the sooner you drop that line of argu meut tho better fut you and the better tar the Slate of Washing ton. To* new survey of Zanier from Bitsville to Coll'us runs through the heart of the land purchase! by the Oregon Iaapro.'i msnt Company, and heuos the change. MORE WASHINGTON STRENGTH Besides what we publish from our Washington exchangee on our outside favoring North Idaho becoming a part of tho new State we have since read the following which we re publish: Tho citizens of North Idaho arc alive and working with the proverbiil grit ! of beavers to secure tlie admission ol ! their country along with Washington Territory, whenever that anxiously I looked fur event shall take place. At a meeting held at Lewiston on the illh of March, Alonzo Iceland, M. A. Kel ley, J. Rand, J. M. Howe, Kichatd Monroe, I. N. Maxwell and others ad dressed the meeting and spoke of the necessity for continued work in the cause. The letter of Delegate Brents re(ju"sting them to give expression to the popular will was read, and while no stronger means eouid possibly be given to show their deep interest in the cause than the ahnest unanimous vote taken directly on tho subject at the la-t election, it was deemed by all pres ent that it was advisable te show that the fire had Dot died out, hut that it still burned brightly in tho breasts of tlie people. To accomplish that object a committee of prominent men was ap pointed as a corresponding committee to solicit the aid of all the North Idah> counties in the support of Brents. We hope they may accomplish their good work, and assure them that aside from the direct pecuniary reward which their annexation would give us, tho people of Kastern Washington as a unity would gladly see them rescued from their unnatural and unprofitable posi tion.— IV. W. Union. The Chronicle endorses the senti ments of tho Olympia Courier snd adds: While it may be true that half a loaf-is better than no bread, we protest against the organization of the State of Washington without including North Idaho. We prefer to wait a few years longer to being adoiitted with the proposed boundaries. We had hoped that Brents' bill would pass and that we could be admitted next winter, but if it is not so ordered we must bide our time. In the meanwhile, we shall oppose all movements locking to the dismemberment of our Territory and the formation of two States thereof. It adds: The report of the House committee on Territories accompanying Brent«' hill is a lengthy document, full of sta tistics concerning our Territory and fav ors our admissiou without North Idaho. We want to be a State, ought to be a Stato and will soon be a »State. Sooner or later, Idaho will cease to be a Ter ritory, be dismembered and we will yet take that by nature was intended to form a part of our vast «common wealth, bearing the name of the im mortal fa'her of his country. It would much simplify matters to annex that portion now while there is practically no objection on the part of (ho high contracting parties. This is neither a Democratic or a Republican measure, but one in tho interest of the whole people, nor is it iu ihe interest of poli ticians as some would have us believe. As a State we coul 1 select our own ollicors and rid ouraelves of that very class which party favoritism now forces upon us. Those papers that attempt to throw cold water upon the effort be ing made for admission, are working directly against the common weal, merely to gratify some personal spite, or in the interest of some selfish, local prejudice. Lot the people mark them for future reward.— Dayton Chronicle En. Ciironicl*:— The probability of annexation of North Idaho with Wash ington Territory as a State is not flat tering, Our people are unanimously in favor of Brents' bill. L. P. Brown, one of North Idaho's representative men, writes from Washington that we mutt bide our time. It is universally conceded that North Idaho ia right, but from puerile objections on the part of certain leaders, the movement is deemed impolite at present.— Corres pondence Dayton Chronicle. It is a shame that North Idaho is not included in the bill pending before Congress to admit this Territory into the Union.— Ex. Just so. Every naan that knows the lay of the land, will say so, bnt all that Aiuslie knows is the lay'of the wires.—IP. IP. FPdfcAmun. Tbo Lewiston Teller is somewhat indignant because the press of Wash ington does not unite with Northern Idaho, in the demand that the boun dary lines of the proposed now State of Washington, as adopted at the Con stitutional Convention, be preserved, and we be admitted without any change of such lino. We hardly think it prob able that wn will be admitted for some time to come. When we sre admitted, however, we would much prefer that Northern Idaho be annexed to Wash ington; and we balieve Congress will do an injustice to the people of that portion of Idaho, if their petition for annexation is refused. What more can we, as citizens of Washington, say? Nothing certainly. Our text is, that each State or Territory should be the arbiter of its own atlairs.— Dayton News. Parties from beyond Snake river infoim us that Mr. Zahner, the engi neer in charge of the O. R. & N. Co. surveys in that region, has tound a fine route for a railroad from Ritsville to a connection with the road gr .ded from Texas Kerry towards Colfax. The rou'.e is said to be superior to tho one up Wavhtucna coulee, and nearer and better than the roate to Sprague. The survrys of Mr. Zahner will doubtless decide the location of the railr *»d from the Northern Pacific to Collax, Mos cow and Farmington.— Union. TELEGRAPHIC ! Gen.

I do know very well how ths people of North Idaho are situated in their political relations. Know they should be annexed to Washington Territory, or State if it be admitted as a State, and I assure you that I will do what I can with our Representatives in Congress to have your destiny ss a people with that of the proposed State of Washington, or. whatever its name may be. I have not much time to write now, but will not neglect your interests in this matter. * If Congress leaves you in statno quo in that matter it will do a piece of d—d injustice. Yours truly, W. W.
