THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 20,1890. The Commercial Convention to meet in Boise, December'öth, 'will inaugu rate many plans to hasten the material development of the'state. It is to be hoped our own Board of Trade will not neglect to be present on that occasion. There Is a queer state of affairs ex isting in Idaho just now over some lawsuits which have"been appealed from district courts to the supreme court. The Wood River Times, in commenting on this, says: "Lawyers who were elected to the supreme bench on the 1st of October last had previously been retained and engaged as counsel on opposite sides of the suits in the district courts, and are therefore dis qualified from passing upon the cases when they come before the supreme court. When ftwo of '.the supreme judges had been thus engaged, it would leave one judge only who could pass upon the cases on uppeal. But the constitution requires that a majority of the justices must concur in an opinion from the supreme bench. Therefore, it will be impossible for certain cases to be settled, unless the legislators shall come to the rescue and devise some means of obviating the difficulty.'' The announcement that Dr. Koch has discovered a cure for consumption is regarded throughout the civilized world with the most intense interest. The treatment of the disease is by in oculation and there is evidence from the highest authority proclaiming the mode of treatment a complete success. If this method continues to stand the test of experiment it must eventually come within the reach of all, even as is inoculation for the prevention of smallpox, making glad the hearts of a pale and suffering host, and lifting frt>m the human race the direst scourge in the form! of .'disease that afflicts it. Consumption cures have been heralded so many times only to prove delusive that the world while anxious to believe that one has at length been discovered that will stand 'the full test of experi ment is Inclined to be Incredulous In regard to this one, though ardently hoping that time will prove all that Dr. Koch claims for his discovery. •'» PROC LAMA TION. Convening the State Legiaiatnre. Wh ureas, Idaho was admitted into the Union of States on the 3rd day of July, 1890, under a constitution pre viously prepared and adopted by a constitutional convention of the citizens of the Territory of Idaho, and ratified at an election held on November 5 th, 1889; and Whrreas, It is provided in the said constitution of the State of Idaho, "that the Governor of the State, im mediately upon his qualifying and entering upon the duties of his office, shall issue his proclamation convening the Legislature of the State on a day to be named in said proclamation,'' Now, Therefore, In pursuance of the foregoing provisions, and by authority vested in me as Governor tinder the constitution of the State, I do hereby issue this, my Proclamation, designating Monday, the 8th day of December, 1890, as the day upon which the Legislature of the State of Idaho shall convene, and the members-elect to said Legislature are hereby re quested to assemble at Boise City, the Capital of the State, at twelve o'clock, meridian, on the day strove named (December 8th, 1890) and proceed to organize the Legislature as provided by the constitution and laws now in force. In Testimony Wherbof, I have here unto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State to be affixed. Done at the City of Boise, the Capital of Idaho, [L. 8.] this 3rd day of November, in the year of our Lord one thou sand eight hundred and ninety and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred und fifteenth. GEO. L. SHOUr, Governor of Idaho. By The Governor : E. J. Curtis, Secretary of State. McConnell's Strength. With the close of the campaign in the cast, interest has begun to be re newed in the senatorial contest in Idaho, and among the throng of Idaho people in the city, the political battle to come off in Boise the first half of December is warmly discussed. The legislature will meet Dec. 8, but the trouble will begin at Boise at least a week before that. One of Mr. McCon nell's right-hand men, who was in town yesterday, said: "McConnell has now nineteen votes in the sen atorial caucus on first ballot. No one who knows the energy and persever ance he has displayed since he entered this contest doubts that the number will be increased before December. I am certain that he will get two mem bers from Shoshone county if Judge Claggett withdraws after the first bal lot. That is, they will go to McCon nell rather than vote for a southern Idaho candidate. The people who are figuring that Mr. McConnell is out of the race are very much mistaken."— Spokesman. Governor Shoup's Report. Boise Statesmen. The last annual report of Governor George L. Shoup to the Secretary of the Interior, which was finished and forwarded to Washington a few days since, is an exceedingly able and ex haustive resume of the condition of Idaho. The excitement of the late political campaign to some extent pre vented the Governor from securing such full information and statistics on some subjects as he desired. As shown by the report the assessed value of the taxable pioperty in the State is $25,581,305. The bonded in debtedness amounts to $140, 715.0«, and the registered indebtedness $92,55231; total, $239.207.35. There is a balance for several different funds, amounting to $33,864.12. The agricultural lands of the State comprise some 10,000,000 acres, three fifths of which are arid, and must be irrigated to make them productive. Thirteen of the eighteen counties in the State are in the arid belt. Governor Shoup recommends in relation to the public lands and irrigation questions that all the arid lands be turned over to the State, which could then contract for the construction of large irrigating canals. The sale of lands rendered productive by these canals would in time reimburse the State for the money expended. The Governor also recom mends that all the timber in Idulio be also placed under the control of the State government, so that laws can be enacted by the Legislature providing for foresters to protect the timber from tire and the depredations of foragers from British America and other States. From the sale of timber revenue will be derived more than sufficient to de fray all the expenses of such protection. Touching upon the stock interests the report states that it will take all the natural increase of cattle and horses to cover the losses of the pre vious severe winter. The percentage of loss among sheep was less than that of other stock, because of the greater precautions taken with them. The owners have learned a lesson from their past experience, and such losses will not occur again. Mining interests, which are greatly flourishing, are treated at length in the report. The la bor supply has been equal to the de mands of the market. President Polk, of the National Farmers' Alliance, is very jubilant over the result of the elections. In a recent interview he said: "The demo crats and republicans are claiming everything just now, but when they come to sift the chaff from the wheat they will find the Farmers' Alliance had something to do with electing a fair p.cportion of the good men who will have seats in the next congress. Up to the preseut time it Is certain that congress will contain thirty-eight straight alliance men, and there are twelve or fifteen more who are pledged to us. These men are from the South and Northwest, the two sections in which the most of work was done. The alliunce in Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa is not our organization, and is not amalgated wifli us, but it made the same fight, and will join us this winter. Our alliauce will co-operute with any farmers' association, andin a little while will have a grip on the sit uation in almost every corner of the land. We are here to stay. Tills great reform movement will not cease until it lias impressed itself indelibly in the nation's history. Financial reform is the necessity of the hour and it must come. The press and the voices of stump speakers were our only assis tance. The alliance has no campaign fund; no boodle. If we had money we Mould not use it. The principles upon which the alliance is founded are solid and correct. We must succeed. Tills fight was no small affair. Extremists of both parties attacked us bitterly and gave us no inch of ground. In the South it was the democrats wl o op pressed us. In the North our most vigorous antagonists were republicans." M.
