THE LEWISTON TELLER.
CIT Y AHii COUN TY O FFICIAL PAPER.__ K» TELLER hat (he largttt circulation oj ant/ paper in North Idaho. Thursday........................april21, wj Mil. wit.LBY'8 Letter. The letter we publish this week from Norman B. Willey, Esq., uf Warrens, is suggestive of a slight change in his views upon the question of annexation, as accredited to him heretofore. M r . Willey is a good thinker and has always been regarded as honest in his expression of opinion. He says that his local paper ( The Free Press) is averse to any further discussion of the question. This is not surprising, for it Dever did discuss the question intelligently and fairly and with any allowance for tho honest opinions of thoso who differed with him. But merely substituted his own dictum in place of argument, and propensity to burlesque those who advocated annexa tion. He merely echoed the voice of the Boise City ring of opponents, so much so that many regarded him as a purchased hireling to misrepresent the sentiment of the peoplo of the North up on the question. This may or may not have been as expected, we know not. The vote upon the question evinced that he did misrepresent the great body of the people of North Idaho, and especial ly of Ncx Perce county. It is not to be wondered at that ho now wishes to avoid further discussion of the question. It is in keeping with tho purpose of the ring, I io stifle discussion, to muke it appear that the North Idaho people have given up their desire for annexation, while the facts are as we read the public sentiment bf the North, they are more earnest than ever since the veto, and many who ex pressed, through strong pressure, a desire to go to Montana, have abandoned that desire and now urge annexation Washington as their only hope to rid themselves of tho domination of the corrnpt rings of Boise City. The North is more united in favor of going to Wash ington Territory than ever before, and seem to have more hope of success for reasons such as Mr. Willey suggests iu his letter. The move ol ihr South at the overtures mado by jho state of Nevada and the efforts of Senator SteW' art, seem to find many of the people of South Idaho with a desire to reach state hood through Nevada, instead of tarry ing iu a state of territorial vatsalage for many years longer. All indices now point to the fact that statehood can much Sooner be reached by the North going to Washington and the South to Nevada than by taking the desperate chances of urging statehood for Idaho, and that the people of both North and South wll be bettered in their condition and progress with much more harmony than has existed between North and South for lo these maoy years. The Teller is open lor discussion of this question or any Other that is to the interest ol the people and has any hope of success. A Union Pacific surveying party ar rived here on Friday and took the train Tor Kiparia, en route to the mouth of Salmon river. They are tho most ignor ant lot that ever struck tho town, know ing not whence they came, whither they go, nor what for. Somebody kindly registered them from Omaha, though. Tho names are U. C. VanArsdel, M. E Nutting, J. A. Elliott, Chas Haydeo, J. M. Kydd, Uhas. Clark, J. Q. Converse, Will Berger and Lewis Meyer.— IF. IF. Journal. Tho above may bave been intended as a slur upon this company of surveyors. But we think it reflects credit upon the Surveyors, in, their not telling from whence they como and whither they arc to go and for what purpose. If they were to tell every newspaper reporter their business, they would belie their trusts as employees of the company whom they serve, and reveal a policy which would be to the injury of the company, and which the public have uo right to know. The fact that they professed iguoraocj ot their plans and purposes, was enough to warn a reporter to gain his desired information from other sources or at some other time when the company were ready to reveal their purpose. We have met the chief and other members of this party and they secu to be far above the average of a surveying paity in intelligence, and their reticence is evidence that they do not intend to belie the ttysts confided to them at the instance of every one who asks them to do so. The Journal's charge of ignorance is uncalled for Ai»J Uij reporter had better.take the charge to T?* ifl not knowing how and when to seek the knowledge he desired. Chicago, April 18, — Tho wheat market is as much of an enigma as ever. Mysterious manipulators are concerning the market. Storage room is being rapidly filled up. Not a bushel is going out of the market. Prices here six cents above the markets iu other cities. Dispatches from San Francisco states that ail the wheat in that market has been cornered. StincHuu for the Teller. ly If tion vice tiou but keep but tbat cause Falls this oj is as of to of a FROM WARRENS. Warrens, I. T., April 8, 1857. Editor Teller : Our local journal docs not desire further discussion of the annexation question, but it Is plain that I lie subject is not exhausted. I observe generally, on the part of its former advocate, a tene of despondency at the recent veto, but it seems to me that the matter never stood upon a better footing than right now. There is a difference however. Here after annexation of one portion to Wash ington and the balance, or so much as desire it, to Nevada must go hand in hand—must stand or fall together. The idea of joining bands with Nevada is of so recent date that its details are not yet fully arranged ; the plan is not fully developed iu tho peoples' minds, but it is evidently getting popular, ic fact, it is precisely what we want. This is a plat form long enough and broad enough for all of Idaho except one precinct to stand on and to work together in harmeny. It takes a little time of course. You will recollect that it is at least thirteen years since yourself and only a few others, at the Start, began tho agitation of the other annexation plan and it has taken all that time to get it fairly before congress. It comes now so near success, so unexpectedly that it gives room for hope. Both houses of congress have shown by an almost unanimous vote that they desire to be rid of the expense and trouble of governing territories; that they intend to add to their size instead of increasing their number, that they will I increase thestrcngth'of weak states rather than perpetuate burdensome conditions. In this view of the case, then, has not the action of our governor, in inducing the president to withhold assent from the Jluiley bill, been [eminently wise and proper? Has he not laid the foundation of a better building than he knew perhnps intended ? Has ho not done exactly right? 1 think ho has. Be cause if the Hailey bill bad become a law we should have been left still in an emasculated territorial organization called Idaho and it might have required a long straggle to get anywhere else ; whereas now, a short pull, a strong pull and s pull altogether and Idaho is expunged from the map and all are suited. I am getting in years now and would like to commence voting for president. I want to help cloct, we will say, Blaine next year; plenty of my neighbors want to vote for Cleveland. Wo certainly can not do this, in Idaho, wo fear not in Washington, but in Nevada the coast clear, because Nevada is, as mining men say, already "a going concern." It i difficult to sec where theie can be any reasonable opposition to the arrangement, except on the part of leas then a doxen men, all FedCMJ^ftd U iritoral office holders. Tho goTSWIs marshal, surveyor general, secretary, two judges, controller and treasurer, aud some clerks would bo legislated out of office, but these functionaries are all men of ability and some of them aro wasting their time on paltry officea in Idaho. The attorney general will not object as ho is nearly certain to succeed J. P. Jones in the Senate. It is truo the territory owns a capitol bujlding so-called, but it is precise ly what the enlarged state of Nevada will need for n state uoiversity and if the people of Boise City will nOt have it used for any laudable or meritorious purpose, sell it to Pron Lan for a Chinese joss house. Now how shall all this be brought about. Our political future rests in the hands of congress and the president. Petitions showing not what on« section wants, but what the whole territory wants, should be circulated in every pre inet in the territory before next lall. Nine voters out of ten throughout our whole area aro likely to support this division. In the face of inch an ex pression of the popular will tho president would probably agree, if not, it would become a law without his agreement. It is best to make haste slowly. All who give any attention to the subject see bow nearly impossible it is for new states gain admission. Look at Dakota. Haviugabout population enough for three members of the lower house, it is denied admission for presumed political bias. If Idaho, sometime in the next century, should happen to gain the same popula tion and should be democratic aud con gress should chance to be republican or vice versa, would it become a state ? not bit of it. But here we have a p'opoai tiou not involving any such considera tions, not hurtiDg any political interest but promoting both tho material and political interest of all couccrncd and therefore we may feel assured Jof its success. If we have to pay [slightly increased taxes for a time we can stand Those interested in taxes should keep it always distinctly before their vision that it is not the amount of taxes but the gross misuse of the money paid tbat hmts folks. N. B. W, It is thought by many tbat with the building of the l'alouse branch, it will cause Unloose City to vie with Spokane Falls lor the supremacy in business of this upper country. all it as of is is We hove been told by these who claim to know, that the lense of the O. B. & N., to the Union Pacific will not be coDsumated, and that the U. P., will have to build its own road into this country to secure a fair portion of the business, and that is why the TJ. P., is now establishing its line down Snake river from Lewiston so as to make good their connection with their lims from the east and south. If they had pro gressed their own contemplated line three years ago, when they first made surveys, they would not have to encounter the strength of other companies now com peting, and would have had the choice of tho country.
