THE LEWISTOM TELLER.
CITY ANU COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER, fhi TELLER has the largest circulation of any paper in North Idaho, tni'RSDAY.. JAN. 1-1. lS8*i Continual from First pngr, mountain of fraud, wliich seems to breathe an atmosphere of suspicion, and which appears more than willing to see iu the ! sweat-stained fare of the Western settler a masked and contemptible scoundrel, in tent on robbing the people of their great patrimony, the public land. Does not tins Congress understand that in Nebraska, whore every one hundred and sixty acres of agricultural land is worth from #500 to 81,000 as soon as patented, and whwe there are from five to twenty claimants for e^ery claim; where any man h is the right to contest any entry, fraud upon the public domain is an impossibility ? Does it not cei or to the honorable Commissioner that ho to doing in these States and Territories, where the land is valuable for agricultural, the very thing that the land-gobblers and thieus want done? This order makes it impossible for an honest settler to raise a dollar on his final receipt ; failing in this lie must abandon the land, or stay on it and starve. The result is plain, he is compelled to sell, to sacrifice for almost nothing what has cost him the tortur of long toil to get; hit claim is "gobbled" by the land shark, the cattle syndicates, and he is sacrificed by the special agent who rides through the region of "suspected lands" in a pal ace-car and writes lurid reports of crimes and shames that smack of the sensational, that ought to be no inure received as evidence of the character of the home ■leaders thau the illustrations in the IV Bce U ascite ought to be received as evi dence of the fireside morality of New York. Mr, Speaker, these men arc poor good proof they nre not rascal ). They are not prepared for a seige, much loss can they understand for years the tire of alt the ofiiciid batteries. They have Borne rights us human beings; they are not wholesale liars. Men tin net commit peijury by the hundred thousand. This order covers half a continent. Men do not sin by the continent —they do not attempt to take un empire by per jury. Men are not punished geographi cally, or eondetned by the million with •ut their day iu court. The reasonable doubt which saves the wretch trembling lor his life, "the presumption of innoc ence" which gards us nil, speaks for these Been and demands that the heel of the Department of the Interior be taken from the neck of those settlers. Let the power which has been too long trusted with the Committee on Ap propriations be taken from them and giv en to a eomiuittec which will take the time to see and know itself before it will permit a great Department of this Gov ernment to bo prostituted througlis impo sition öd the one band or credulity on the other into engine of oppression. (Jive the power of this Department into the hands of a committee who will remember that the presumptions of law do riot change with a change of administration. Excitement in Southern Orc/jon.

Jan. 2, 1880. Editor Teller : New Year passed off very quietly in camp, although the usual amount of fun was indulged in. The dance ut Little field was well utteuded by the "devoter» of the step art." The district eourt is in session. The jadge arrived on the 30th of Dec., as the the "beautiful" waa fulling. He came in tm the back of a foaming steed from Thompson Falls. He ma a host of friends who kihdlv greeted him and w 1 corned him back again, but his stay is short for he goes to Boise iu a few days to attend the supreme court. There are 63 cases on the docket for this term but ■o jury will be drawu, only arguments on demurrers will be heard, owing to the limited time. Mining affairs are nearly suspended •wing to the weather. Quartz interests and work on lodes progresses. The Gol den Cheat mill still grinds away, and is turning out the golden bricks in good •bape. The Idaho company's mill will contin- 1 ! ue to mo all winter. Th« Goldeu King company will ereet a twenty »tamp mill about the 15th. They hive a large force of meu to work and their intentions are to run »II winter. A Keutac-ky company has bci n incor ^Jrated tor the purpose ol »melting and reducing ores on the south fork and tw,, smelters are soon to be erected at K n lucky City; the machinery is n-o* at Thompson l'alls and will soon be in camp. The company is said to pos-, ss plenty of capital to eatry on their plans and systems in mining oj 1 ration«, an i i| will add greatly to the prosperity of th Coeur d Aimes, We wish them a silver lined future and plenty of bullion. Unite a stir in mining is going on r l'r iiri . a stir in mining about Plav r Centre »ml N ! »•»<! some «•xtoiiMve op, rations will s begin in those localities. Curban C-utre is attracting the atten , lion of mining men of means, and tie r is a vast amount of work being d ti there by individual miners with every hope for the future and many of them . leel sanguine of a boom with a promise j of much bullion. The Bed Hack Flume company have 1 suspended w, rk for a short time, but they soon expect to start the work and push it forward with their usual energy. Boom in town property has quieted down for the present, except at Kentucky City which is now supposed to be tin center of the developments of the New York district, and ol course corner lots are in demand. Murray, Delta, Engle! anti Myrtle are now in statue quo, but brighter days are looked for by all our promising lung. The map issued from the office of the Sun is a model lor exactness and finish, us the various camps anil situation of mines, roads trails and streams are finely marked out. Strangers are daily arriving. Plenty of room for more. Judge Claggott's two daughters arriv ed from Portland last week. Several la dies an" families have coins into camp to permanently remain, anti we will soon have a civilized community. We have good school housts and a fair number of scholars.

The fatal rapidity with which plight folds and Coughs frequently develop into the gravest maladies of the throat and lungs, is a consideration w hich should imp» 1 every prudent person to keen at hand, as a household lvmcdv, a bottle of AY Kit'S CHERRY PECTOUAL. Nothing else gives such immediate relief nnd works wo sure a eure in all directions of this class. That eminent physician, Prof. F. Swcotzcr, of the Maine Medical School, Brunswick, Me., says:— "Medical science ha« produced no other nno fly ml* expectorant no Rood u* Ayeh's Cherry Pei tohai.. 1 1 ih invaluable for diseases of the throat and lunt;«." The same opinion is expressed by the well-!.nown Dr. L. J. Addison, of Chicago, 111., who says :— "I have never found, In thirty-five year« of continuous «tudy aud practice of njedlcine, any preparation uf jo ureal value a« Ayeb'a Cherky Pectoral, for treatment of diseases of the throat and lumrs. It not only break* up colds and cun-** severe eoyirli*, but I« more effective than anything else in relieving even the mont iHtrioui» bronchial and pulmonary affections.." AYER'S Cherry Pectoral T* not a new claimant for popular confl tb nec, but a medicine which is to-day saving the lives of the third generation who have come into being siucc it was lir t offered to t ht* public. There D not a household in which this invaluable remedy has once been in troduced where its use lias ever been nhundont d, and there is not a person who has ever given it a proper trial for any throat or lung disease suscep tible of cure, who has uot been muuo well bv it. AYFR'S (.KERRY PECTORAL bas, In numberless instances, cured obstinate cns"s of chronic Uroucliltis, Laryngitis, and even acute Pneumonia, und has sa.'.-d many patients iu the earlier stages of Pulmonary Consumption. It is a medicine that only requires to lie taken in small doses, is pleasant to the taste, uml ia needed iu every house where there aro children, us ihere is nothing so good as A Y ERN (II ERR Y PI.( TOR A L U >r t rent nient of ('roup and WhoopiiiR Cough.
