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
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
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.
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

l*iitcliard crock is looming up snd
every day confidence in it is gaining.
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.

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
