A Double Team Race in Which the Marshal Came out Winner Caught on thé Fly. Some two weeks ago we published an item stating that the site for the large saw mill that Mr. J. M. Harrington, of Hartford, Minnesota, proposed to move and erect at this place, had all been contracted for. We understood at the time that such was the ease; but a few misunderstandings caused matters to be delayed for several days, and at times it looked as though satisfactory terms could not bo made with a certain party who owned a portion of the land that had been selected for tlie site. But, happily to state, all such fears have now been removed and the site securely contracted for in black and white. Matters that hud been hanging on the feather's edge so long was brought to a focus lust Friday after noon, and that Lewiston will now have one of the largest and best saw mills in the northwest, is a foregone conclusion—a settled fact. The site selected is located in the eastern part of the city, on the property owned by 8. C. Thompson and 8. 8. Rogers, bor dering on the Clearwater river, conve nient to the city and exceedingly handy to the railroad, when it will have I een completed. A more suitable spot could not have been found, and the plant that Mr. Harrington intends to put in at this place will be no small concern, but will Le an enormous affair. His mill will have a capacity of more than forty thousand feet per day, and in connection with the saw mill lie will run a plaining mill, sash und door, shingle and box factory. He will have all the machinery necessary to success fully carry on all of the different branches of business just enumerated, and will bring with him over forty ex perienced workmen, all men of families, saying nothing about the large uinouut of work that will he given to laborers in this immediate vicinity. After hav ing spent two weeks in the timbered region of the Clearwater country, in vestigating the different varieties of pine and cedar, Mr. Harrington rë turned more than satisfied with his outlook, and did not hesitate in saying that all of his anticipations had been unquestionably realized in the fullest sense, and that a finer selection of tine her could not be found anywhere. The logging outfit and about fifteen men will u-rive next month and go to work at once getting out logs, but the ma chinery for the mills and factories will not arrive until ubout the close of the year. Lewiston may seem quiet and dead, but the kinks will finally all be removed, and in the language of the Free Press, "Keep Your Eye on Le\y is ton, the Historical City!" V is ton, the Historical City!" V Two gentlemen whose names we did not learn, were in from the country Sunday, having a little spree, and in the early part of the evening got into a disturbance. They were not so drunk but what they knew that if they staid in town they might be lhcked up, so they got their team and started out of town as fast as their horses could travel and whooping and swearing, at the top of their voices, little thinking that they would be brought back for such con duct. But Marshal Leland happened to be on the street and saw their per formance us they passed by, and at once procured the fast team of Felix Warren, and started in pursuit. By the time he got started, the "bad men" had a start of between two and three miles the best of him, but the Marshal succeeded in catching and bringing them back to town, after travelling ten miles; They were arraigned before Judge McConkey, and for their sport, were fined ten dollars. People coming to Lewiston have got to behave them selves, or our "Charley" will know the reason why. U. 8. Store—Kendrick, Tdaho. Notice of Application to Cat Timber.

Pleasure and Sorrow Go Hand in Hand—A Queer Runaway —Drowned in the Snake Other Interesting News. We nrc delighted when we pause for moment to consider the condition of our present enormous fruit crop. Never us a season more gloriously in favor of the fruit-grower. Just take a stroll through our many orchards, and in every instance you will find the trees bending to the ground loaded with the hoicest of fruit. While every effort is being made to market as much of it as possible, yet there will be thousands of tons fall to tlie ground only to decay. Tis a shame that such is the case when there are so many places without any kind of fruit whatever, but what can done? Nothing. Every steamer and stage leaves Lewiston heavily ladened, but despite that, our export ing facilities are too limited. Nothing short of a railroad can succeed in mark eting all of our fruit. Mr. Chris. Waldmtann and Miss A. . Terhaar, were united in marriage last Monday morning, at nine o'clock, In the Catholic church at Keuterville, Rev. Father Soer, officiating. The young couple have the best wishes of tlie Teller in thë in-ginning of their married life. Although tlie affair should have been one of the most pleasant, it was marred of much of its pleasure by the death of a little sister of the bride on tlie same day and at about the same hour of the marriage ceremony. The little child hud been sick several days hut was not consid ered so dangerously ill, and while the ceremony was taking place at the church, the little child, at home, passed away. A queer runaway occurred on Snake river the other day, when the fly-wheel of Jim McKee's threshing machine broke loose and run two miles down the big hill. The thresher was at work on a high bluff above the river when the pin that holds the fly Wheel in position worked out, allowing the wheel to slip off of the spinale. It so happened that the wheel was revolving toward the river and when it flew from the thresher it shot oft'down the moun tain side at lightning speed, never stopping till it reached the river's edge. The wheel was so badly damaged us to be useless and a new one bad to be ob tained before the thresher could be started again.—East Washingtonian. started again.—East Washingtonian. A young gentlemen, late of irfissouri, and whose name was not ascertained, was drowned in Snake river at Wawa wai, on Sunday evening while bathing. The water was not very warm and after having been In for u short time he took the cramps and sank. The steamer Almota, on its trip down Monday morning, made several attempts in dragging for the young man's body, but did not succeed in getting him out; and on Tuesday morning when the Annie Faxon came up, his body was found and removed from the water. The young gentleman was an entire stranger in the west and had been bere but a short time Éitl was working at the Holt orchard down the river. It is good policy never to repeat gos sip or to assist in circulating scandal. If you hear a rumor reflecting upon a friend, run it down and ascertain the truth with as little delay as possible, and if it has been circulated mali ciously, punish the offender. If the scandal concerns «a stranger pass It, give it no credence, or you may unwit tingly be the means of causing trouble to an innocent person. Scandal mon gers are too common, and if a few of them were punished for their readi ness in acceding and circulating the evil stories that come to their ears any community would be better off. U. 8.

Kennedy and wife on south tirant avenue was' tlie »eene of a very pretty wedding cer- emony. It was tlie occasion of tlie marriage of tlielr daughter, Miss Katie L., to Mr. Charles A. Foresman. The ceremony was performed by Rev. G. W. Switzer of tlie M. E. church. The bridal party stood under a floral cupid'a bow and arrow. The bride was lovely in a dress of white mull, made plain, and wearing mosquitaires. She car- ried a bunch of purple morning glories. The groom was attired as all grooms are on such important occasions and looked very happy as well he should, having won the heart and hand of one of the Athens' brightest girls, one fitted to till any station in life. Mr. Foresman Isa talented young man. He was educated at Depauw and after- ward studied law but is now principal of the schools at Lewiston, Idaho. After congratulations had been offered, tlie guests, consisting of relative and a few intimate friends, adjourned to the dining room where a wedding break- tust was served. Here t<x>, the decora-' tions consisted chiefly of morning glo- ries. The favors were cards, tied with baby ribbon, on which was written ap- propriate couplets. The young folks were all given scats at one table and Miss Adda Harding secured the piece of cuke containing tlie wedding ring. Tlie out of town guests present were Miss Cora B. Campbell and Mrs. Elfie C. Adams of Danville, Ind., Horace Ogden and Mrs. Foresman, mother of tlie groom, of Foresman, Ind. Mr. and Mrs. Foresman left on the morning train for Indianapolis and Chicago. After visiting relatives in northern In- diana they will return to Crawfords- Yille for a few days before leaving for tlielr western home.—Crawfordsville, (Ind.,) Argus-News. - 1/ James Suridge, the great cattle man, of Camas prairie, drove down fourteen car loads of cattle and crossed them over tlie Clearwater at the ford, just above the agency, Monday, and took them to Uniontowii, where he shipped to Chicago, via the Northern Pacific. Had Lewiston a railroad this stock would all be shipped from here, but as it now is Genesee and Union town gets all the credit of being located in a great cattle region, when, in reality, the cat tle all come from the Lewiston and Camas prairie country. There will be a change of things sometime. We made mention lost week of the completion of the boom, for catching the large cordwood drive of John Bymaster, which lias been on the way from the north fork for several weeks. On Tuesday last the boom was swung near the Lindsay place, and is now in readiness to corral the drive, the head of which lias now arrived. This Is the largest cordwood drive ever put in the river, and this fact is indeed encourag ing, as it will insure a plentiful supply of 11 re-wood. Our citizens probably remember the scarcity of this article last winter aud the exhorbitant price of charged for the same. The session of ihè East Columbian Conference, Methodist Episcopal Church, South, met in Dayton, Wash., August 12th to 17th, inclusive. Re-' ports showed an increase on most all lines, and Bishop W. W. Duncan, D. D., expressed great satisfaction in the success of last year's work. He made seven new circuits, among them were Genesee circuit, with Rev. H. T. Bur ger preacher in charge, and Camas Prairie circuit to be supplied. Rev. Howson B. Terry was returned to Lew iston circuit and will travel as far as' Camas Prairie until another preacher is sent to his assistance. U. 8. Store—Kendrick, Idaho. Board of Equalisation.
