Boardman, the Pierce City ex pressman, brought down the news last Saturday that the original "Lost Cabin" mine had been discovered by a party of prospectors, and that there was to be a general stampede from Pierce City and the Weippe country for that basin. The "Lost Cabin" basin is one of the fabled eldorados of Idaho mining history. It was discov ered years ago, hut by some unfortunate means lost again.

This time it was a farewell gathering in honor of Miss Ada Hatcher and Prof. C. A. Foresman, who left yesterday for In diana. A large number of young peo ple were invited and took part in the evening's festivities. The evening was nice and cool, and the music from Prof. Ross' orchestra so thrilled the dancers that the hours passed away quickly. At about midnight strawberries and Ice cream were served, after which dancing was again resumed which lasted for a couple of hours longer. Owing to the rain, but a small crowd gathered to hear H. R. A. Pocoek's lecture on Alaska, given at tbe Mission rooms of the Episcopal Church last Thursday night. The lecturer illus trated his talk by two large maps showing the points of Interest, and get ting the geography of the country clearly before the audience. The sub ject matter of the lecture was full of interesting points. It is evident that Mr. Pooock has a wide knowledge of the subject about which he speaks. The audience found it difficult at times to follow the speaker owing to his rapid manner of speech. More confidence and deliberation, allowing the good points time to soak in, would add ma terially to the delivery of the lecture. The audience was well pleased, no complaint having been heard except that the lecture was rather short, point it seems to the writer as being well taken. The subject is interesting and new and Mr. Pocock with his large fund of information is able to make it a very popular one. The Coming Line.

D. 1891. F. W. Kettenbach, Secretary. Dated at Lewiaton, Idaho, June 1st, 1891. LEWISTON NATIONAL BANK BUILDING SITE CLEAR. The Sweetwater Ditch! The Future of Idaho, an Interview with A. F. Parker—Absolutely Personal Items. Our citizens note with satisfaction the downfall of another old land mark, in the removal of the old log structure to make way for the new stone hank building. It is a cheering sign of pro gress and improvement which every body hails with delight. The old structure is one of the earliest land marks of the place. It dates back to 1862, and was one of the first perma nent frame structures of Lewiston. It is firmly joined together of hewn logs, floated to the very spot on which the building stands, during the high water of that year. It was built fora general merchandise store, but has answered is postoffice, signal office, land office and for most every other purpose known till time has shattered its frame, and its dusty, mouldy timbers must give way to something more comely. A fine three story stone structure will lie erected on tlie site at once, by the Lew iston National Bank. John Keenan, of Spokane, has signed the contract to have the building completed by Janu ary 1st. The rock is now being quar ried from the ledge owned by the Lew iston Magnesia Stone Company. Another enterprise started last year is now being pushed to completion. Tiie Sweetwater Irrigation company are now at work with a force of fifteen men, to which others are being added daily. Tiie scheme is one of tiie best plans for extensive irrigarion yet de veloped. Engineer Muxon has charge of tiie work. He is very sanguine about the project and asserts that with proper storage reservoirs every acre of land between Sweetwater and Lewis ton can be irrigated by the water thus obtained. The entire length of tiie ditch will be seventeen miles, extend ing from a point near lake Waha to the flats above Lewiston. Thousands of acres of fine land lie along the route of the ditch, which with proper irriga tion will raise as fine crops as any in the inland country. This land under irrigation will lie quadrupled in value and the crops increased proportionally. The ditch proposed at present by the company will carry 2,000 inches of water, but the engineer has ascertained by careful estimates, that fully 10,000 inches can be obtained from the same Hon. A. F. Parker, of the Idaho Free Press, is in the city, and talks as en thusiastically as ever of the great pros perity in store for Idaho. Probably no man in the state is so well qualified to speak with authority on this subject as Brother Aaron, for liis opinions are learned from aetual knowledge and ex perience gained in many years residence in every section of Idaho. Speaking of his own home on the great Camas prairie, in Northern Idaho, Mr. Parker says he never saw it lookiug to better advantage. The spring has been un usually wet and crops promise to be prodigious. Cattle raisers of that seo tion have secured contracts to supply the men building the Great Northern railroad with 4,000 head of beef cattle this summer, the heards are being gathered and driven every week. The circulation of this large amount of mon ey in so Isolated a country is of great benefit and times are correspondingly good. The mining interests of the mountain ranges surrounding the Camas Prairie, are coming forward and Mr. Parker believes that Elk City, In the Bitter Boot range, will soon devel op into the largest and most productive bullion producing camp in the state. The ores of the camp are principally gold, but carry more or less iron and sulphurets which require concentrating. The ledges are large and the ore of uni form value throughout. Mr. Parker is the owner of a one-fifth interest in a group of quartz ledges in the Buffalo Hump region, which he says is the best free milling gold ore he ever seen in the state and from which he expects great returns, when the necessary ma chinery is on the ground. Speaking of the state at large Mr. Parker said that Idaho was increasing in population and wealth with great rapidity She has produced $175,000,000 since her mines were discovered, and her annual output of the precious metals places her third in the list of mineral producing states. This Is a fine show ingifor a state that has no wagon roads in her mountain regions, and when lier transportation facilities are in creased by wagon road and railroad construction, Idaho will produce more gold and silver than any state in the Union.—Walla Walla Statesman.

A citizens' meeting called last Saturday night brought out a large and enthusiastic crowd of voters. A general expression of the citizens present was decidedly in favor of bonding the city for improve ments. It i J timely and necessary to tiie best interests of the city. A citizen's ticket was nominated, each candidate pledging himself in favor of improve ment. The ticket put up at Saturday night's meeting was for mayor, S. C. Hale; marshal, S. L. Thompson; treas urer, George H. Lake; councilman first ward, A. W. Kroutinger,jr.; second ward, Dr. J. B. Morris and George Mor rison. However, as several had an nounced themselves already for the offices of marshal and treasurer, other candidates were in the field. Monday was a lively day and by general rust ling tiie largest vote polled for some years was brought together by six p. m. The total vote cast was 217. In the first ward 72, second ward 145. S. C. Hale was elected mayor by a major ity of 216; C. F. Leland, marshal, ma jority 30; J. R. Lydon, treasurer, ma jority 4L A. W. Kroutinger polled the full vote of his ward, and Dr. J. B. Morris and George Morrison had no op position in the second ward. When the smoke of tbe battle had cleared away and the successful candidates stood forth, the general expression was that a good ticket was elected. Let tiie new officers get In now and carry out the ideas of Improvement suggested and the citizens will be satisfied. to for di a this yes see mills other for Nez N. Under the new homestead affidavit the affiant has to swear that the said application is honestly and In good faitli made for the purpose of actual settlement and cultivation, and not for the benefit of any other person, per sons or corporation, and that lie will faithfully and honestly endeavor to comply with all the requirements of law as to settlement, residence and cul tivation necessary to acquire title to the land applied for, that he is not acting as ugent of any person, corporation or syndicate, In making such entry, nor In collusion with any jierson, corpora tion or syndicate, to give them the ben efit of the land entered, or any part thereof, or the timber thereon; that he does not apply to enter the same for the purpose of speculation, hut in good faith to obtain a home for himself, and that he has not directly or indirectly made, and will not make, any agree ment or contract in anyway or man ner, with any person or persons, corpo ration or syndicate whatsoever, by which the title which he might acquire from the government of the United States should iuure in whole or in part to the benefit of any person except him self, arid further, that since August 30, 1890, be has not entered under the land laws of the United States, or filed upon a quantity of land, agricultural in character, and not mineral, which, with the tracts now applied for, would make more than three hundred and twenty acres. Special attention is also called to the fact that if the applicant Is not a native born citizen be must furnish a certified copy of his certifi cate of naturalization or declaration of intention, as the case may be, at the time of making his affidavit. These papers have not been required hereto fore, except at the time of taking final proof. Applicants should note the change and he prepared. Superintendent Isaman is authority for the following points of interest in the new school law. Hereafter teach' era applying for certificates will be ex amlued in the following branches as provided by Sec. 11, of the new school law: orthography, reading, writing, arithmetic, English grammar, geogra phy, history of the United States, in cluding the constitution, physiology, including tbe laws of health and the nature and effects of alcoholic drinks and narcotics on the human system, and so much of the school law as re lates to tbe duties and responsibilities of teachers. If the applicant is to teach in a school of high grade his examina tion must extend to such additional branches as are to be taught in such schools. The examination will be con to ducted by a hoard of three members and on printed questions sent out by the State Superintendent of Public In struction. There will be three grades of certificates hereafter. The first grade, for two years; the second for one year; the third for six months. Temporary eertificaces may he granted but It is un lawful to grant a second certificate to the same persons. A temporary certifi cate cun be granted only to persons having given satisfactory evidence of their competency to teach. It will be seen that the new law gives a some what larger requirement of our teach ers and more uniformity and system to our school system. Teachers in the country will need to look sharp to tie able to meet the requirements. Supt. Isaman expects to hold a couuty Insti tute during the summer with the idea of giving sjiecial instruction in teachers training and methods. Gov. Willey received a letter from a gentleman In the north part of the State yesterday making inquiries as to the rights of pre-emptors to school lands. He complained that he had made some improvements upon a tract of the kind mentioned, but that anoth person had disregarded his prior pos session and was grazing his euttl* upon it. The writer wished counsel of the governor, wanting to know what course to pursue so that his rights might be vindicated In a legal man ner. The governor says this is not the first epistle he has had of the kind, In fact they are very frequent. There seems to be an idea in the minds of some itersons that the school lands are subject to pre-emption. This Is not the fact. They must he appraised by the county commissioners and according to the terms of the constitution cannot bo sold for less than the sUm of $10 per acre. After the uppraisement shall have lieen made the hoard of State land commissioners may sell a limited quantity each year. Residence and improvements go for nothing.

Sheriff Joe Eakin brought to towil from Spokane Saturday one Dell A; Hardy arrested for horse stealing. Hardy is a well known horseman of Spokane and was arrested softie weeks ago near Spangle by Sheriff Pugh un der very suspicious circumstances. He had in his possession two large valua ble hay horses, which he was Unable to give satisfactory account of. lie was locked up for a day or two, but released, as the owners of the horses could not be found. Hardy left the country shortly after, but the officers kept themselves informed as to his whereabouts and learned soon after that he was in South Dakota, The two horses are supposed to have been shipped to him there. A few days ago the owner of the horses was discovered* He is William Paul, of Camas Prairie, near Cottonwood. A warrant for Hardy's arrest was sworn out and Sheriff Eakin started to get requisition papers. Last week Sheriff Pugh of Spokane, unexpected ran across Hardy on main street of that city and Im mediately arrested him. A dispatch was seut Sheriff Eakin at once and he immediately went to Spokane and took charge of the prisoner and arrived here with him as above stated. He Is now safely lodged in the jail here. From the accumulating evidence there is a strong case against Hardy. His bonds have been placed at $2,000 and he will probably remain in jail till his trial which is set for June 20th. notice »ob pre-emption proop. DAVID C. STEPHENS. Pr« D. 8.
