On Monday a farm team stood dozing in the sun securely anchored to a post In the porch of the Lewiston National Bank. Tbe sprinkling cart passed near. There was a rush of cold water, terrified snort and away Went the team taking out two posts of the porch. They were captured on the flat above D. M. White's residence. No damage was done to the team, the wagon or the harness. The Boise Statesman celebrates the advent of Its twenty-sixth birthday by republishing its first Issue, dated July 26, 1884, as a supplement. It was with a great deal of interest we read this souvenir of the past. The changes have been many and wonderful but a comparison of the Statesman, past and present, shows that it has not suffered but still maintains the high position set out in its initiatory. The loss occasioned by the Wallace fire is estimated to be $500,000. The water supply gave out and the entire city burned in an hour. The wants of the unfortunate people were quickly met. Wardncr, Mullan and Osburn had carloads of supplies on the ground by daylight. Shacks and tents are go ing up everywhere over the burnt dis trict and a new and beautiful city will soon rise out of the ashes. Kemp A Manley are busy this week with their force painting the school building. On Friday last the swinging staging slipped whllj they were work ing near the top of the building, and paint cans, staging and men soon landed on the ground. In attempting to hold the rope, as It ran through the pulley, D. Kemp blistered his hands severely. Save a general splattering of paint, no other damage was done. The idea of making an exhibit at the exposition is growing fast. Mon day night the Board of Trade made ar rangements to secure a fund to help in meeting the expenses of the display. Many of the prominent farmers have signified their willingness to help fur nish material. The Board torther made arrangements to have an adver Using circular, stating our resources and advantages, 'distributed during the exposition. On Monday evening Mayor White received a dispatch from Judge Sweet saying that the entire business portion of the city of Wallace was destroyed by fire and that many homes were also consumed. Tbe telegram further ex pressed a wish that our people would lend aid to the suffering and homeless. The matter was brought before the board of trade Monday night and a committee on solicitation appointed. The donations were liberal. W. P. Edmundson, as he came into the convention Monday, took occasion to gather from his fields some choice specimens of his crop of grain. The heads of wheat and oats brought us are the finest yet produced. Every grain of the wheat is well filled and in some of the heads the meshes are seven grains deep and as high as one hundred and forty grains was counted in single head. The oats was equally fine, one head of that measuring nine teen Inches in length. Who can beat it? Or shall we proclaim Mr. Edmund' ■on the banner former of the Potlatch? It la hoped that many of the finest specimens will be saved for our ex hibit at tbe Exposition. MOSCOW MEETS A WATERLOO. Lewiston Club Larrups the Would-be Champions of the North. Strange isn't it that after a scries of defeats the Lewiston's should snatch a signal victory from the strongest team in the north country? The famous Moscow team came, they saw, they de parted disgusted, it is said, but certain ly wiser and dustier than before. In spite of the extremely disagreeable weather which prevailed on Sunday last a large crowd assembled to witness the initiatory game of the Lewiston* Moscow series. The Moscow men were the first in the field for practice and their movements about the diamond showed them to lie first class ball play ers. Their pickups were clean and neat and the throwing quick and accurate. They were confldeht, self-assertive players, w 'll versed In the tactios of the game, but it ill-becomes the best of players to depend on victories past to secure a present game. Lewiston soon showed up and by the time the crowd in the grand stand had clawed the dust out of their eyes the game was on. Th« first inning convinced the Moscowites that Lewiston was in the swim. Four runs were knocked out of their star pitcher in this inning, while they In turn franticly beat the air in trying to judge Fryar's curves. This strong lead taken by Lewiston in the first inning practically decided the game. Moscow could not find Fryar's balls for enough safe hits to score a single run. The two runs placed to their credit in the third and seventh innings were scored on errors of the home club. The Lewis ton's found Smith with readiness and batted him safely and often. McNamee whom they substituted In the eighth inning threw a swifter ball but was a trifle wild and gave several men bases on balls and before he could steady down the boys had placed five additional runs to their credit. Ftyar and Mull ally make fine battery and the entire club in the field and at the bat did ef fective work. The high, strong wind prevented any fine displays of fielding by blowing most of the long flys back of the foul lines. Still, however, Brear ley, of Lewiston and Mix, of Moscow, settled under a few nice ones. The game was full of fine features. The battery work of Fryer and Mul lally was first class. They are sure batters and good base runners. The daring slide of the latter to the plate was the most exciting movement of the game. Newell found the ball in tbe fourth for a three bagger that made the fielders hunt leather with a rapid motion. For Moscow, Bye, McNamee, Martin, Smith and Mix did the most brilliant playing. Smith is very cool in the box and Martin stops the balls easily and effectively. Bye is every where at once and just at home in shortstop's position. Mix and Me Namee were the most effective at the bat. The usual amount of kicking was given on the decisions of the umpires. This Is expected always. No position In the game Is played with greater risk of losing a reputation than that of um pire. It was a good game inspite of the dust and wind and a big crowd will at tend the return game to be played at Moscow, Aug. 10th. Following is the score by innings: Lewiston 4 0 0 1 0 0 2 4 1—12 Moscow.......0 0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0— 2 Struck out—by Fryar 15; by Smith 11 ; by McNamee 5. NOTES OF THE GAME: Pan cakes. He is a lah lah—Mula-lah. And the band played Annie Laurie. "This fills a long felt want."— Fletcher. "We have met the enemy and we arethelr'n." "We'll let'em down easy."—Moscow before the game. With Fletcher on the coaching lines the circus was complete. It was a little surprise party ar ranged for Moscow's benefit. "It Is Buch a good day for Lewiston to blow."—A Moscow lady. Strike one, Bye; strike two, poor Bye; strike three, good Bye. It is an ill wind that blows nobody some good but'it would putzle the wis est to find a benefit conferred by tbe gale of Sunday. Mullally's tine slide to the plate in the fifth inning was the great feature of the game, 'the crowd fairly raised itself to applaud but the adverse de cision of Umpire Brown put a damper on the yell. When in the first Inning Newell, the first man at the bat, struck out, a prom inent Moscow man raised tbe war whoop, but as Lydon began the slaughter his joy was changed to mourning and he stole away in a cloud of dust. "Yon don't treat us white down here," said a Moscow man aa he dug a hand toll of Snake river sand off his countenance, bntwe noticed that Lew iston Ians carried about equal shares of the aforesaid real estate distributed over their fooes. It was a beastly day. We are glad such days do not often come.. in of on to as to The Democratic Convention. The Democrats have taken the initiative and have placed their ticket j in tlie field. The primaries <»f Satur day were well attended and, as the manner of voting prevented nil pos sible chance of packing tlie convention, nothing occurred to ruflle the harmony of tlie occasion. Candidates and pos sible candidates began to bob up early on Saturday and many were on hand to "shake" with the delegates as soon | as the vote was announced. Chances j for wire pulling were of short duration and the little differences, if any caino 1 of up, were quietly disposed of in the pre liminary caucus of Monduy morning. Here it was that the slate was made and everything primed for the after noon session. Nevertheless, one or two little surprises, not on the pro gram, came to the front. After all mankind are very human and you can't always sometimes tell. The convention met In the court room and was called to order by W. T. Wright. On temporary organization W. T. Wright was chosen Chairman and P. M. Davis Secretary. A com mittee of one from each precinct was chosen to report on credentials and choose officers for permanent organiza tion. By report of this committee thirty-nine of the delegates were shown to be present either in person or by proxy. J. W. Reid was chosen Chair man and F. H. Grierson Secretary of the permanent organization. Without further preliminary action they pro ceeded to nominate the ticket The names of Joseph Eaklu and Jno. Bymaster were placed before the con vention for the office of Sheriff, the ballot resulting in a large majority in favor of Jos. Eakin. For the office of Clerk of the Court to be ex-offlelo both Auditor and Recorder, W. M. Rice and Kroutlnger were candidates. Hera the vote was close resulting in the elec tion of Rice. D. 8. Dent had no op position for t.ie office of Treasurer and ah chosen by acclamation. For the office of Assessor to be ex-officio tax oollector, W. G. Anthony was chosen by acclamation. M. E. Hhepler and W. T. Wright were nominated for Pro bate Judge, but before the ballot Mr. Wright withdrew bis name and M. E. Shepler was nominated by acclamation. Considerable merriment was occas ioned by the nominations and election •f a candidate for Coroner, each man trying to fasten the office on some other fellow. M. A. Kelly, W. A.Simp son, Chas. G. Kress and Felix Warren were presented but after two ballots W. A. Simpson was made the choice of the convention. The County Com missioners were nominated by acclam ation, their names being first presented by their district, the ones chosen being for Dist. No. 1, W. W. Brown; Dlst. No. 2, John A. Wilkinson; Dist. No. 8, Andrew Schultheis. On motion of Dr. Kelly, J. B. Morris was made the candidate for representative te the state legislature and was chosen to that position by the unanimous voice of the convention. After two ballots the following named gentlemen were chosen as delegatee to the district con vention to be held here August 20: Dr. M. A. Kelly, I. N. Maxwell and Isaac Mounoe. The Democratic State Con vention will be held at Boise City, August 25, and to that the following delegates were chosen, J. W. Reid, P. M. Davis, Dr. M. A. Kelly, with Ezra Baird, D. S. Dent and F. H. Grierson as alternates. The usual custom for naming county central committee was followed and these gentlemen selected: W. A. Simpson, C. Welsgerber, J. B. Morris, P. M. Davis, W. T. Wright, D. C. Stephens, Jno. M. Sllcott, Isaac Mounoe, Andrew Schultheis, M. E. Shepler, C. A. Lee per, W. J. Mervyn. On motion of Dr. Morris the dele gates to the state convention were In structed to present the name of Dr. M. A. Kelly as Lieut. Governor of Idaho. The delegates were torther Instructed to favor the nomination of John Halley as congressman for Idaho. The dele gates to the district convention were instructed to fovor the nomination of W. Poe as District Judge. Farther instructions were urged but voted down and tbe delegates left to exercise their personal preferences. The ticket pre sented was made on motion the unan imous choice of the convention. "It is no doubt as strong as could have been selected preserving the rights of all sections;" "A good ticket and one that will win," are among a few of the comments heard as the delegates filed oat of is a A frill meeting of the Athletic Assoc lation is desired at the next meeting, Monday evening. Hie instructor de sires to make some arrangement in re gard to forming the clauses. As Im portant measures are to be considered, all members should be present. The Water Works. The following from the Oregonian of the 25th shows the plans of the Lewis ton Water and Light Co., in regard ttf their plant here. We me informed further that the pipe selected has been bought and will be shipped at once. "Tlie Lewiston, Idaho, Water Com-' panv, in which several prominent Portlanders are interested, was recently organized and incorporated, with capital stock of $100,000. Enough stock lias been subscribed and paid up to commence tlie immediate construfaion of the works. Engineer Bloomfield, who lias the work in hand, has the fol lowing to say regarding the character of the water, the site for the pumping station and the plnnt: Alter a careful examination, the Clearwater river at a point about two» and one-linlt' miles above tlie town, has lieen selectod as the source of supply. That the Clearwater is not misnamed can be seen at the confluence of it and the Snake river. The latter river is charged with sedimentary matter, and is highly alkaline, while Clearwater is remarkbly sof , clear and free from im purities, and as they meet, the two win ters are as distinct as a blue and brown ribbon, side I y side, until they inter mingle below. The works will be n pumping system of a capacity of 2,000,000 gallons raised to an elevation of 225 feet, giving » pressure of 97 pounds per square inch in the lower and business portion of tbo town, and will give the beautiful pla teau above the bluff ample pressure for all purposes. The plant will consist of a brick en gine and boiler house 40 by 40 feet, on a concrete foundation 14 feet high on the river front, Into which is built the heavy wrought Iron Inlet pipe and pump well, with their attached screen, gate and foot valve. The Inlet pipe will be 5 feet below extreme low water. The pumping engine will be one of the modern type of double compound condensing engines. The boiler will be of steel, 85-horse power, with a steam pressure of 120 pounds. The reservoir will be cement lined, and of a capacity of 1,500,000 gallons. The mains and distribution pipes will be 8 and 06-100 miles long, consisting of 12,10, 8,6 and 44nch pipe. Republican Primaries.

The city council in Its meeting of Tuesday night decided to Increase tbe number of night watchmen. Two more will be added to the p re s e nt force and great vigilance charged upon them.
