The order voted a grand Lall to be given Feb. 19, 1891. Extensive preparations are already under wajy to make this the finest ball ever given In the city. It is likely that the order will organize a complete uniform rauk before winter closes. Slowly tbe railroad grades encircles the city. There are but few breaks now in the line of embankment along the Clearwater side. At one or two points the question of right of way still delays the completion. These places are, however, being arbitrated upon this week. Engineer Van Arsdal Is here closing the controversy. Owing to slmular delays along the line else where, and delays caused in crossing the reservation tbe road will be kept out this winter but is expected here early in the spring. One who has seen tbe plans and specifications of tbe new railroad buildings to be erected here iu the spring claims that they are elegant and commodious.

To the uninitalted the grades and re ads ulxiut the hills of Idalio are at for ordinary travel. Judge then of the novel and exciting experience it must he to have a runaway occur along these steep grades. Mr. Geo. Ruddle wusln to pay his supscription this week and related a lively fracas he had recently on the grade just above Lake Wahn, one of the most dangerous points for such an occurance along the road over the mountain, lie was coming down from the Pllter Haw-miil to Fort Lapwui with a heavy load of green lumber. Half way down tile brake block slipped out, and one member of ttie four horse team, wild and skit tish, commenced running and kicking. Mr. Ruddle tried for a time to stop tlie load, but the decline wus sharp ami the frightened horses thoroughly uncon trolable. He jumped from tile loud landed, after a summersault or two, on the side hill slightly bruised but sound iu limb. The kicking horse soon got tangled in the harness and fell, throw ing the entire team and stopping the wagon by smashing a wheel. Luckily this occurred just where and when it did or tlie whole out fit would have plunged round a sharp turn into the lake, us It wus the kicking horse was killed, the others escaping. The wagon suffered a broken wheel, but the lumber was scarcely damaged ut all. Pa louse City, Dec. 6.—A new fenture has arisen in the senatorial fight in Idaho. It was stated today on good authority that the Moscow poli ticians have entered intoacombination with the Slioup-Dubois clique, by the terms of which Mr. Connell is to lie traded off for a good sized appropriation for the state university located at Mos cow. If the agreement is carried out the chances of the Panhandle's gaining a senator are tieuutifully small. Mr. McConnell's stronghold was supposed to be in the Latah county delegation, and if they have formed the alleged combine Shoup and Dubois will bave an easy victory. Ellexsburoh, Wash., Dec. 0.—A miner came in from the northern part of tills county this morning, bringing samples of excellent asbestos, located by samples of excellent asbestos, located by him in the Interest of the Ellensburgh Improvement Company. The discov ery was made late this fall, and sped mens were exhibited nt the Spokane exposition. The property has now been definitely traded, and will prove a'most important commercial factor.

Boise City, Dec. <>.—It lias !>eon alleged for several days that the north did not want n senator and Dubois and Slioup have endeavored to form a com bination to down all opposition. A caucus of representatives of the north was held to-day with such southern delegates as are in favor of standing by tlic plunk in the platform, the result being twenty-two, all present, voted to support the resolution. Eight more are known to lx* pledged. This makes thirty out of forty-four republicans, and all tlic democrats are in favor of the resolution. The result causes great ex citement, us it is no longer possible to carryout tlic Khoup-ilubois combina tion. There is talk of a new southern candidate, of the withdrawal of Slump in favor of Dubois, etc. Dubois still claims that he can Iu* elected, but it looks very doubtful. The tight is very warm. Boise City, Dee. 0.— Judge Clugett is making a clean, noble fight. He is conceded to be strong and popular with many of Dubois' friends in South Idaho. His splendid attainments, scholarship, intimate knowledge of the wants of the mining section of Idalio and ability to present the wants of Un people, give him great prestige with the members of the legislature. C. 1). Por ter, who is managing »Ir. Clagett's campaign, was interviewed to-night at Mr. Clagett's headquarters, and ex pressed himself as well satisfied with the outlook for Mr. Clagett. He ip quite confident that a senator will be elected from the north. Mr. McCon nell's friends are equally confident that in ease a northern man is chosen lie will be senator. Governor Slioup Is busy with state matters, hut his friends are quite sanguine that the gal lant colonel will be elected. Boise City, Idaho, Dec. 8.—The first legislature was organized this morning. All day yesterday the hotels were crowded and the rooms of the candidates from the north were filled. There was the greatest enthusiasm among their followers who worked «uselessly. It was understood that the vote on the organization would be the first test vote. The enemies of northern senators announced that they proposed to eontiol both houses and to allow no friend of the north to get any offices. Shoup and Dubois continue their combination nguinst the north and span* no effort to defeat both Clagett and McConnell, but these latter two united their forces and with southern help elected every officer of the house except the clerk, also the secretary of the senate. The lieutenant governor rapped the senate to order at 12:30. The Rev. J. Skidmore offered prayer. The proclam ation of the Governor convening the legislature was then read. A. Athey, of Wardner, was elected secretary pro teni. The chief justice administered the oath to the senators, who ad journed to 3:30 in the afternoon. The committees on rules and organization were then appointed, und the sen t to adjourned until 10 o'clock Tuesday. Tbe house met at 12, being called to order by H. Z. Burkhart, ex-speaker of the territorial legislature. The Rev. L. W. Gowman offered prayer. The proclamation was read, and the mem bers were sworn in by Justice Morgan. Frank Fenn, of Idaho county, was elected sjieaker by a vote of 29, Rallen tine (dem.) receiving 5, Stlvenburg 1, and Emery 1. Mr. Fenn took the chair and thanked the members for the honor. Charles Reid, the anti northern candidate for clerk, got 18 votes against a scattering vote of 7. The vote was taken by ballot. The house then adjourned and met at 2 o'clock. For sergeant-at-arms, Hughes (anti-northern) received IT votes and Hunter (northern) received 19, Both were of Ada county. The balance of the ticket elected were all friends of the north. The assistant clerk is Miss Sweet; the doorkeeper, J. W. Jackson, of Bingham county; enrolling elerk, W. S. Duniway, of Custer county; assistant enrolling olerk, Miss Theresa O'Farrell, of Ada county; assistant en grossing elerk, Miss Annie Black, of Ada county; page, John Tompkins, of Ada county; messenger, Harry Shell worth, of Ada county. Great excitement prevailed during the balloting, but after the victory was won by the north its opponents became demoralized. The caucus was held before tbe legis lature met, but the resolutions were far from satisfactory when the formal vote was taken In tbe house. The northern men have been pressing the vote on senators until to-day, but are not so anxious now'. Everything is working harmoniously for the panhandle, and all northern members and their south ern friends are working harmoniously and are constantly visiting each other. of to to TELEGRAPHIC.
