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.

Bitsville to Coll'us runs through the
heart of the land purchase! by the
Oregon Iaapro.'i msnt Company, and

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.

OREGON S GOVERNOR FOR OS
Gov. Thayer of Oregon who former
ly resided here in North Idaho snd
knows our situation, write* to Dr. M.
A. Kelly as follows:
Portland, March 26. 1882.
Dear Dr:—Y ours of the 20th inst.
is at hand. 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. Thayer.
An enormous meteoric stone fell the
other night southeast of Fort Assinni
boin, M. T., lighting up the surround
ing country with the glare. Ths time
which elapsed between its striking the
earth and the report was nearly fire
minutes. The shock was like the rs
port of a cannon, and ths earth was
shsksn. It is estimated that the me
teorite must have fallen fully fifty mile*
distant from there.
