IM4 " 1 —■ ■ COMBINATIONS VS THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE. Day after day the lines of the polities parties are being drawn into position The contest for the highest office in the gift *f the people will undoubtedly he a» fierce this faU as ever. The great |.r.,b let» of the parti,'» at the present time is Wot the underlying principals up n which the piatfonns of the f as, have been built. but a combination of tireumaUorea which inevitable in effect, and which an trill, at the name time, capture public sentiment. Even before the, member* of the leading parties have assembled in convention there arc intima lion, sent abroad throughout the land. that certain combinations nr.- .bout to be | formed by leading candidate*, again-t ' their brother contestant», in order to rap ! tare the organisation of the convention». ' This is donewithout regarding the »L-ht» j of their constituent», or the united voice of the majority of delegates. The man ly, independent candidate, having that j becoming dignity of a President, is thus | deprived of natural support by a coward j ly bargain, or a» politicians like to call it. ' "Machinery of polities." ThU is an clc ■tent which is dangerous in the extreme. The united wisdom of the ballot should have its full force. The leaders of fac tions have no right to subvert the inter arts and wishes of the people by per ar ranged combinat i n. If a candidate has genuine merit he should fight a meritor ious battle and stand or fall by lu» colors The "unit rule" one of the strongest wheels of "political machinery" has been done away with. The plan of voting by ballot at primaries is being adopted throughout the United States, and, the next reformatory step in the progress of politics, we think, should be the adoption of measures to prevent n combination of factions from overruling the rightful pow er nf the voice of the people. BLIND FOOLS. Every few days the telegram» report a new bank failure. In nearly every in stance the cause of failure cau be traced cither directly or indirectly to speculation in stocks. There seems to have been a combination of bankers throughout the United States engaged iu this class ol gamboling. M any *of them were men of good character and reputation, having n large capital of their own accumulation The very fact of being intrusted with the wealth of individuals and empotation», acemi to destroy the sense of valuo of property, tutilious of dollars puss through the hauds of a hanker in the courso of a abort time. Large transactions become of slight importance. They sec where their depositors have made fortunes by taking advantage o( stringent circutu stances. .The greed for gain becomes so potent that judgement and discretion es are to have a controlling iuflueucc. They ■ot only invest all their own property in margins) speculation, but they take funds intrusted to their care, for safe keeping, and throw them into a "blind pool" iu liopva that the wheel of fortune will so turn that they can become millionaires. The most extravagant imagination cau not conceive of a scheme more hasardous than a "blind pool" investment. It may be hoped that the courts of this country will see that the full penalty of the law is administered to defaulting bankers who steal the hard earnings of their depositor*, l'ublie con fidence and commercial faith must be ex tended and enlarged as tho business of this country increases. National credit is dependent to some extent upon the financial standing of individuals and cor porations. If there is any power in the penalty of law, it should be invoked to punish defaulters and to protect public truth and confidence. There are a large number of iunuii . grants coming to Northern Idaho this year. Many of them are without friends or acquaintances in this section, and there fore, have ne direct means of learuitq where they can find deniable homes. In nearly every township there are some vacant lands, as well as lands that her been filed upon ;nd abandoned. The only parti« who can know about the value of auch lands are those living iu their ini mediate vicinity. If they wish to in crease the resources of this country, it is their duty to do all they can to assist immigrants in locating homes on these vacant and abandoned lands. Tbe sooner we get rtie arable lands of tbis county under a good state of cultivation tbe sooner will we have railroads snd impiov ed transportation. Just now there i» a* opportunity for everyone possessing knowledge of this country to aid in the ■atonal development of Northern Idaho by (king ail they can to assist settlers s ow in g here in locating their claims. This ia a responsibility that should pot be sEghted. Our progress appends upon FROM THE MIRES. Mi rsavville. May 26. HS4. Ed.

Many are sanguine that it is rich and fed from the gravel deposits as well as quarts lodes. Gold from Pritchard and from the gravel deposits are precisely the same hi character, quality and smoothness. Quart* interests arc steadily I-»»led after by th« hoys and several good fimls arc reported as being found up Pritchard creek near Raven City. There arc some very good prospects along the belt be tween Pritchard creek atid Beaker. Bcav it district is fast coming to the fruut as a substantial camp and some good pay is found iu rock and gravel in various parts of the district. Evolution has its share of up» and downs but good prospects are obtained. Business in general is reviving in the many towns here. Goods are com ing in fast and loaded pack train» arrive at all times. -Murray ville is boom ing and town property is crawling away up iu the fancies. Buildings of all kind» are being rapidly built and all bix. is pM»i»-ring. All branches of trade are represented; all profession». The legal lights head the list. The pioneer paper came up from Eagle and located here. '1 lie Engte swallowed the fiugget house, lot mid all, aud the bird is aftci more prey. He is screaming for more room n« in Eagle City he is crowded and cannot flop hi* wings without striking them. Eagle City is dull but it will re vive, for there is no doubt that the gravel deposit crusses Eagle creek above the city some distance. Pritchard creek will pay its entire length. I ho miners are talking seriously si adopting a more stringent set of local rules and regulations which, if done, will uo doubt be of vast benefit to Eagle and the eunip in general. Under the old regime which is under the U. S. mining laws flOO is tho assessment yearly This amount can count on build ing cabins ami making trails by the hiea! rul«. The miners of Summit and Beaver districts compel miner* to work and represent each claim one day in seven, 10 heure actual labor, or four day* in a month. T W boy* in Cœur d'Alene district are beginning to tumble on to it as a safe racket to pursue on the ten or twenty acre tuiuiug much law. The min« are deep here, aud it ia expensive and slow work to open up a ranch and many are not able to do *o from the low finances they find themselves in after the long and costly winter just passed, hence if more stringent rul« compclle them to work eliiims, they will get oprr. cd up «Hier. Rarere and Butte citi» are lively and beginning to wake up to the fact they are to bo of important business centers. Yours, N Ez Pixi e. There is a certain element iu Congress who aie doing all they can to send Chief Joseph aud his band of murderers back to this country. These same Congress men will not help the settlere who had their homes burned and all their property destroyed, by passing a bill to pay for tbe property d«:royed by those Indians. They murdered our settlere, destroyed our property, and now nothing will do but to send them back in our midst to be eudured the remainder of their live*. If sending them back is dealing justly with them; why uot pay the claims of the set tlers and thus relieve those who have lost their property?
