Tht TELLER hi u Mr laryrti circulation ..MAY 17. 1*83 ACTION OF THE PEOPLE OF M03 COVT AOAIN8T COUNTT COURT HOUSE AND JAIL IN 1880. the county Lewi.-ton and Tn 1880. the people of several other precincts wcrejdcsirous of building hitter count y buildings, whiih if costing more than 81000 had (•> ho ordered by the commis sinners enlv ttjam petition ol two-thirds of the tax-payers of the county ; accord ingly the board ordered their clerk to prepare blank petitions to be circulated for signatures. One or two were sent to Moscow for signature, but only three sig natures were received to-wit : "J. G. Krihbs, J. Cox and B. II. Nymeycr." But in opposition to the erection of a good court house and jail, a remonstrance was drawn up, and headed by J. II. Mc Guire, the managing man of W. J. Mc Connell & Co., then at. Moscow, and signed by Jehn G Steel, another of the firm, and doubtless would have been signi'd by W. J. McConnell himself, had he not boeu at his home in Oregon at the time. The following is a true verba Lion copy of the remonstrance and of tin names attached : To the Honorable Hoard of County Commit t oo"*, of Xrz 1'crrr Cvun'y, Idaho Ter mor y : TVs the undersigned citizens of X or Peres county would most earnestly remon strate. »gain»t your honorable body taking •uy favorable action on a petition now be iug circulated throughout the county, wish ing your honorable liorly to cause to be e ted in the City of fatwiston, a court house and jail for the use of Nez 1'erue county, for reasons hereinafter stated, viz : let. We confidently tiebeve that in the near future, this part of Idaho will he an nexed to Wasbingt.ii when she dons the habiliments of a state, aud in that event the boundary lints of the county w ill be changed. 2im, The county is already heavily in debt ; a majority of her citizens have re cently came here and have very hard work to live.« 3rd. The people at present are not aide to stand the additionaTtaxca that would fol low auch an undertaking. 4th. In view of the unsettled condition of affairs, and the fearfully heavy taxes up on ua, we deem it unwise for your honora bl« body tn lake any favorable action in the premises at present. , J H McGuire W W Wheeler D P Greninger T.

We then had hut the old jail and court house huildiug. Since then the commissioners have secured <|uitc a large and commodious court house building up on easy tt rms, and latter than has any county in the Territory, stive Ada county and perhaps Llalm county, and one that will tinswir the purjmse of the county for years to come, though not a new building nor a monument of beauty in architec ture. Here follows the minutes of the Moscow meeting : "Moscow, I. T., July 4, 1880. At a public meeting oui lied for the puiposo (if romoustrating against the building ofa court house and jail in the City of Lewiston; G. B. Christie beiug called to the chair and II. McGregor ap pointed secretary, The chairman iu a tew remarks stated thu purpose of the meeting; after which the following mo tion was made by IV. I). Bobbins and seconded by J. Burlbor, that A. A Li. it allen present the remonstrance to the board of county commission, rs. Moved by A. A. J. Fry, seconded by J. Shield that a collection be taken up to defray A. A. Lieualleu expenses. On motion G- B. Christie wus appointed to take up the collection. Proceeds of collection, 63.05 The above was the action of the gen erous town of Moscow, under the leader ship of \V. J. McConnell & Co., per .1 II. McGuire, manager, and now they at tempt to burlesque the county buildings, which they refuse to supplant by new ones more com meus urate with the people of the oldest county iu the territory. Now con trast this action with that of the people of Lewiston, who to the uurnber of 1 Si! tax-payers signed the petition to the board for a new county court house and jail. M r. McCouuell aud those acting with him cut u very sorry figure, whin they attempt to burlesque the building which they refused to suji I*" with new and more commodious j building. The suae reason* exist* now Iur no change in county seat that they ! then urged in their remonstrance »gaiu.-i c/j erecting new county buildings.

( Iti' f Lngiii'-cr lilicki iidol fer has completed the inspection of the line over its entire length to the crossing ol the iSimkc rivi rat Burnt river canyon. l\ i»rk is being pu.-hed at all points. Graders workiug cast Itoin .Snake rivu wiil, withiu a month, have 35 miics of road graded. This will only leave about fifty miles to be graded to make counei tien with the party working from the east. Much of the work in this section can be done with tu.rnpt rs. It is confi dently expected that tin- road will be completed to Burnt river ei'o.-sinj thi I »II- The Idaho people e>>n.-i»i. r eiftaiu that the load will b. extend 1 to the Sound. If. J. Moscript, who, with a party of surveyors left Lew iston some time «tree to explore the route from that point up the Snake, had at last accounts proceeded fifty-live miles mid found a practicable rout»» for lli.it. di-tam-e. ifti gitieer Clark started lr.*ni Burnt riv-r crossing with forty men, five boats and provisions for two months, with orders from headquarters to proceed down the Snake river till lie met Mon-rip's party. The Short Line having left l>. iso City out in the cold, the citizens oflh.it <iu organized u corporation with a capital ot 8 . 1 , 1111 ( 1 , 01)0 to build a railway Iront Boise to connect with the O. It. V A Cos. road at Burnt river crossing. Since the 55 miles reported in the above as having been surveyed up Snake above Lewiston, Mox-rips has completed the survey of 43 ! additional miles, mak ing 118.j utiles distance above Lewi.-ti n, and found no harrier to a railroad tin whole distance, and by this time Clark should have made the connection of the two surveys, and no one of the surveyors here can foresee any worse ground for a railroad than that which Moserip has al ready surveyed. The whole survey is likely to prove n complete success and the huildiug of the road may lie safely predicted, as among the events certain to take place, Mr. \ illard to the coutrarv, notwithstanding. The Walla Walk Demo'crat announce.-, that an O. S. L. surveying party has proceeded to Yakima. ; • • I COUNTT ASSESSOR. Reports come to us that the county assessor, Herbert, is doubling thu value of property from ils assessed value of last year, as for instance cows that were assessed at 815 last year, are assessed at 830 this year, and land that was assessed at $3 per acre last year lie is assessing at Si! per acre this year, and other class of pro perty in like proportion.] Now whether this he so, we only know the fact that he is so reported. If it be so. the cause for so doing, we know not. We are told that some simple and uiust-ke evil miud ed jicrsons in the interest of Moscow, are charging that the Lewiston people have instigated him to do this. Such a charge carries with it, its own falsity. Where can there he found a tax payer either in or out ol Lewiston, who would induis» the assessor to increase the assessed value of his property and coun>cl him to pay au in creased tax upoi^liLs own property? If this is being done at all, it doubtless is being done at his ow n instance, either from bl own judgciifcnt of its value, or from his desire to obtain an increased amount of percentage for the labor of assessing. If it be the latter it is an unworthy motive; il it he the former and the assessment is too high, the tax payer lnts his remedy with the Board of Equalization, who, if they find property over estimated in val ue, can make a reduction. The assessor is required to submit a blank statement to be filled by the tax-payer with the character and amount of hi« property and have it sworn to by the tax-payer, and then if the tax-payer and ass- ssor cannot agree as to the value, the assessor can fix the value, according to his best judgement, iu the first instance. If the tax-payer is assessed at too high a value hi- right of appeal to the Board of Kqualixatiou remains iutaet, aud then that lu.ard can retndy the evil by a reduc tion. Il Mr. Herbert is doing a wrong, the people of Lewiston are not responsi ble for his acts. Moscow had as much to do with his nomination and election as any other portion of the county, and in j this respect, -the Pot cannot call the kettle black legs.'' But for the good of the* people of the county, aud the safety of liis own reputation, we trust that Mr. Herbert is doing bis duty to the people of the whole county, fearlessly and faith fully, according to law and the best iu terewt of tax-pay, rs. FROM FOUR MILE. Pot b Milk, I T , May 1», 1884. Kl» Tkli.eii:— McConnell* illustrated edition nt' the jail and buildings used by the county officers of N.z J'erce, to be the property of the county in three yeans ay warrantee deed, at the annual jiaynieiit of 81-5. The lot it j *i ; ii which the build ; in-g now stands and occupied by the coun ty officers can be readily sold to-day ft t $. i,Uftft if it was not in course of trati.-b r to the county. The aim <»f tin illustrât, d edition is, we suppose, to election er vet» rs and to befog tin ui to vote for M .— cow While it is true th -jail and build ing now used and half paid for by th tortus of sale, is not of so styli-h an ap pearance as the pride of the j copie Would like to see and the healthy final; eial condition of tin- could afford, yet th y are comfortable aud wi 11 light d aud pi, nty of room, for years to come, ft r th purpose of traii.-acting all the business of the county at a very small exp use to the tax-pay ( rs and a good, fair prospect of a valuable piece of pr.pt rty into tin lull pos-e--i- n of the county, at terms favorable, and without any in, i.iiwni in to th-» finances of the poop! • or county to acquire. It i- not the fault of (he people of L -wi-I, ii and many of tin north that the present jail and buiLlin. are oei upiod for county purposes. Three or four years ago tin- .-rand jury, coming from all p .rtsof th c,unity and a l.-pui body drawn from the people, reported that the jail and buildings, thou usid by the county, were a shame and disgrace. The matter coming t » the notice of the th- n board of County ('ennui--.-toners and they Icing limited by statute from renting or building over ijl,DÛil, they authorized the clerk to draw up and circulate peti tions over th,» county for the nceis-arv two-tliii»ls, to increase tin ir authori'v over 81,000 us the law provides in tIi. • e»i.--d statutes of the Territory. lYti were sent out to every precinct in tin county, but the necessary two-thirds was not secured and the court house bit-irn -s was indefinitely postponed by the will •>f the people, as expressed by remons trances. Iu Paradise precinct the people were ln>t and angry and proclaimed loud ly it was a dodge of Lewiston to incur expense and none, perhaps, took any more active part to defeat it, then the firm • d McConnell & Co., merchants of Mos cow, and citizens of Paradise. At the next general election following, those who signed the petition were denounced and hargeil by tin- citizens of Moscow with being LcwL-tou men, though -».me of th, m were members of the grand jury, the body who so forcibly denounced the build ings occupied by the county officers at that time. That« what* the matter with Hannah! Some of the citizens of Mos cow were candidates fur the suffrage of tli - pe<»pie, and th ir own neighbors and fellow citizens refused to vote for them, for the only runs n that they signed the petitii ii. How does it look now voters, to see those same people use the illu-tlat ed McConnell edition for the benefit of Moscow when they, by the act of signing the remonstrance, arc more to blame for the eouuty buildings than are the [»copie of Lewiston and more for they worked to defeat it and now try to make sport out of tlmir own acts? Voters what do you think of the edition win n this is a matter of fact and of record? Some who are in terested for Moscow now were the victims of the joke at the polls, and the Sinator from Oregon ami Yamhill who is to be bonefitte.d if the county seat i- moved, is for his own self inter» st to sell his own private property and he Is off. no doubt, to the quiet shades of Yamhill. One who Knows. FORCING A ROAD TO MAKS VOTES FOR MOSCOW. We received the following letter char acteristic of the animus which seems to govern some that are laboring to make Moscow the county seat: Moscow, May 11. 1883. Mu. Lrla.ni>, »8ir:—I take the priv ilege of writing to you a few lines. The people of Moscow and vicinity want to ran a county road through niv farm on the Little Potlatch, which will greatly ! • . . ' i - damage It. lhe^r have now a good road i . ..... . - . . , tee to talk to me about the matter, and j wecould not agree, aud now want to force on one side of the place, and tln-v are still not satisfied. They sent a commit mo to give them a road through toy farm and want me to make the fencing. They stated that Moscow wanted the trade ol the i'otlatch and also that the road would be beneficial (to them I in the com ing election. I am sorry to state that 1 dun t feel able to buy the trade, nor the votes for Moscow. 1 would like if you would write me and toll me what course to take. If you want farther iulnruintiun write me. 1 close, hoping to hear from you soon. Yours truly, \X. J. Johnson, 1*. O. address, Moscow. Hie above letter needs uo comments to show the unfairness in socking Mr. Johnson's land for a road without com pensation, in order to secure the Potlatch trade fur Moscow and their vote* for the county seat.
