A slight commotion stirred the nat ural tenor of events about the Raymond House this week by the announcement that a trunk had been stolen from one of the guests, Miss Nellie Moore. After a short search the missing article was found doWn at the river bank near the Clearwater ferryi It had been broken into but most of the contents remained untouched. The young lady though ilaims damages for nearly one hundred dollurs. Report comes to hand that a serious accident happened to the »hlld of J. N. Bice at Asotin. On Monday last Its skull was severely fractured by the kick of à horse. Dr. Shaff of this city i was immediately summoned and it was found that a section of the skull would have to be removed. A piece two ana one-half Inches long by one-half of an inch wide was removed and the little sufferer was much relieved and Is Im proving as rapidly as could be expected. W. H. Bishop, after carefiilly looking over the ground, has decided to open up In the real estate business at this point. He has had an extended experi ence In working real estate ln Spokane and other thriving cities of Washing ton, and comes thoroughly Imbued with the feet that Lewiston la the coming city of Idaho. It needs only united effort and energy, on the part of its citizens, to make it a thriving city, the center of Industry and trade. Mr. Bishop bas established his office In the Hale A Cooper building, opposite the First National Bank. Give him call end list your property. See hla advertisement in another column. The platform lately put In course of construction by the Northern Pacific Elevator Co., has just been completed and hauling will be resumed at once. The platform la sixty by forty feet, and will be used to store the remainder of this yean crop. All the warehouses of town are frill to overflowing and this had to be added to complete the storing room. As quoted In another article the estimated crop marketed here this season will exceed 800,080 bushels, most of which is already stored In the warehouses here, awaiting shipment over the railroad on Its arrival here. All * in Butowlngto U,* general grain block ade in the Pacific Northwest, If tbs road were here ears could not be ob tained to carry off the product Thu suggestion springs up naturally, "why no manufacture this product here and ship the flour Instead?" Lewiston, from Its advantageous location, is the natural manufacturing and shipping center for the whole Clearwater coun try. We cannot begin too early to svto bitoh and hold our supremacy to this regard. Witt some of our wide, awaks capitalists catch up the wiggre tfon and interest capital and enter prim to a maanfeeturtng interest at this print* The Lewiston Amateur Dramatic Company gave its promised entertain ment on Friday night last. The play was the "Poor of New York," and the production was rendered in a manner highly creditable to the members of the company. The production of a play of /uch a character was an ambi tious attempt and the young artists have every reason to be proud of their success. Owing to the poor stage ac comodations of the Lewiston town hull it is extremely difficult to produce One Its any play that will require any great ! change of scenery or shifting of stage i property. The stage is narrow and crowded an . ill-fitted for action of any kind. The wings and dressing rooms L, are but little better, and the citizens | gll can hardly hope for any production of j merit to be placed before them as long i C as there are no better accomodations afforded the actors. As a matter of, puplic spirit and city pride there should be a public hall in this city, better fitted to hold entertainments than the one we at present possess. A small party representing a part of the Teller force took occasion to make the drive to Lake Waha on Sunday last. The day was a little too cool to be exactly pleasurable, but barring that the ride was a delightful one. As you approach the la %e the increased alti tude gives one a magnificent view of the surrounding country. The broken billowy plateau is dotted with ranches, and the wheat lands extend to the base of the mountain, only giving way to the pine and fir trees ' that cover its sides. Near the mountain fine ranches of timothy hay are seen, and long ricks here and there in the fields show how heavy the present crop has been. The Asotin country, thq Waha coun try and the entire Clearwi.ter basin, with its million of acres of fertile wheat lands, lie directly tributary to Lewis ton and it Is only a matter of a few of a years when their Immen«, acreage will be marketed hero, either for rmmu facture or for shipment. Lake Waha, ! nestling among the foot hills of Craig mountain, is indeed a "surprise of nature." It is a lovely spot and des tined some day to make a fomous sum mer resort. The brisk ride in the cool alr whetted our appetites, but luckl y Landlord Faunce of the Lake House prepared for such an emergency * * __ . _ 1 was and furnished a rc^al dinner, of many new improvements soon to be made ibout the lake which will greatly add to thetpleasure of parties summer ing in that dellghtfiil spot.

Far off to the south the beautiful Blue mountains close the vista in a smokey haze, to which the laud gently rises in a series of gently sloping pla teaus from the narrow strip of bottom land on which the city is built. The roud, plunging ripidly down wards, winds and twists al.>ng the pre cipitous sides of the bluffs, the view widening at every step.

Settlers did not begin to come in till 1870, when the district around Moscow received a number of Immigrants. On account of its isolation the other sections progressed more rapidly than this, as previous to '82, when the Union Pacific was completed to Ripuria, boats could only come up at high water, owing to the obstruction to navigation below that point. The completion of. the Spokane A Palouse road to Genesee, three years ago, also helped this county consider ably. At present the means of communica tion with the outer world are limited. Two steamers a week wfth passen gers and freight, ply between this point and Biparia, connecting there with the Union Pacific system. There are daily stages to Pomeroy on the Oregon Short Line; Union town on the Spokane A Palouse; Asotin City, Wash.; Mount Idaho and Orangeville, in Idaho county, and to the new city of Kendrick, cinnecting there with stages to Moscow. The population, according to the cen sus, falls just short of 2,000. There are five churches in the city: The catholics, episcopalians, presbyterians, method ists and universalists, each having t neat and decorous building. The banking establishments are the First National, J. P. Vollmet, president, and J. H. Evans, cashier; the Lewiston National, N. W. Brearley, president, and W. F. Kettenbach, cashier,—the whole of the stock of tills bank is owned by local capitalists; and the pri vate Bank of Lewiston, John Burke, the well known merchant of Spokane. The city boasts two first-class hotels,—the Raymond House, under the efficient management of W. E. Tlmberlake, is well and favorably known to the travelling public all over the country. The school facilities are exception ally good. There Is a graded school with a high school department and an attendance of 150 pupils; also a con vent school for girls, under the man agement of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart. The only manufacturing plants in operation at present are a flour mill with a capacity of forty barrels a day, a small saw mill and a plaining mill, owned respectfully by B. Booth, L. A. Porterand L. Rowley. The real estate market in the last twelve months has displayed great activity, the transféra aggregating 8500,000. A number of tho largest sales have been effected by Mr. W. F Kettenbach, of the Lewiston National Bank, to prominent officials of the Union and Northern Pacific railroads Charles Francis Adams and Vice President Holcomb, of the Union Pacific, C. J. Smith, of the Oregon Im provement Co. and Mr. Huaon, prin cipai assistant engineer of the North' ern Pacific at Tacoma, are each holden of from 823,000 to 8100,000 worth of property to or around the city. The most important building erected during the year Is the new county court bouse, a handsome brick edifice costing 880,000 and la said tobe the finest ln the state. The Interior fit tings are very elegant and ooat over 810,000. A good jell with the latest Improved steel cells is attached, happily without a single occupent.

The plateau to the south extending back about two miles, to which I re ferred in the early part of this article, will be supplied from one of these mains with an average pressure of sixty-five pounds to the square inch, thus insur ing an ample service for purposes of irrigation or domestic use with a plen tiful reserve in case of fire. The country immediately tributary to Lewiston consists of Nez Perce county, of which it is the county Idaho county and a part of Shoshone county. The whole district is gener ally known as the Clearwater oouutry. The general resources are grqjn, stockraising and last but not least fruit growing. This is the home of the world famous Idaho pear and in a few years the peach will enjoy an equal reputation. I visited an orchard of twenty aorea here which Is rented for 81,500 a year or an annual return of 876 per mere, and the renter considers he has a mighty good bargain. On the north fork of the Clearwater are Immense tracts of timber, princi pally white pine and cedar. Several capitalists have visited this section but the lack of railroad facilities heretofore has prevented any effort at develops has prevented any effort at develops ment. Large bodies of galena ore are known to exist on Buby creek, a tributary to the Potlatch and close to the railroad now being constructed to this pointa Several locations have been made and much assessment work done. I saw some samples of the ore which strongly resembles mineral and have some from the Kootenai. The assays run from 880 to (200 per ton in silver with eighty per cent. It is expected that the Palousebranctt of the Northern Pacific will be la operation to Lewiston before the first of the year, the grading in this vicinity being nearly completed. The Union Pacific has just completed sfervey connecting with Salt pokane Falls Lake City, passing through this town, and announce their Intone tion of building next summer. The Lewiston A Southeastern will also build to Urangeville, Idaho oountyj through the famous Camas Prairie country, which has at present no rail* rood facilities. The allotment of lands to severalty to the Indians on the Nee Perob reser vation will be completed next spring. This reservation is only six miles from the city and covers an area of 2£00 square miles. It is known to contain some of the best land in the state end greet rush Is expected when It U thrown open.
