Work on the bank building progresses rapidly. The slower part of the work will soon be completed. This last week the arches over the main entrance and over the windows of the first floor were put in and the effects gotten from the stone work are excellent. The magne sia rock is proving its excellence every day as a building material. It can be hewn and cut so readily Into designs and ornaments, and worked so cheaply that it is a valuable building stone. a of of a The sad intelligence of the death of Willie Davis flashed over the city Wednesday morning. He had been one of the victims of diphtheria, but was fully recovered from its effects. He, however, contracted a heavy cold which settling on his lungs soon weakened him past recovery. He died at 11 o'clock, Tuesday night It is so sad that one so bright, so winning and agreeable should be a victim of an early death. The sorrowing parents have the sympathy of the entire com munity. The latest dispatches from Washing ton say that Dubois has been sworn in and that Clagget's case would be heard by the committee in a few days. From the tone of the advices it would seem that Dubois is safely Senator trom Idaho. Senator Shoup bobs up already with a bill to locate a public building at Boise Bity, asking for (200,(XX) for that purpose. Now if we had our own valiant McConnell we might record a similar recognition of Lewiston's inter est But alas! our champion bns re tired from the lists, but there is a future Look out for Senator McConnell then The stockholders of the Magnesia Stone Company held their aunuai elec tion ot officers at J. H. Robinson's shop on Friday evening last. The following named gentlemen hold positions for the ensuing year: D. M. White presi dent, J. H. Robinson secretary and Dr. J. B. Morris treasurer. A new office was created, namely, foreman of quarry and James Powers was chosen to All that important position. The company contemplate pushing the sale of rock on the market early in the spring, and a meeting will be held soon to devise ways and means of best accomplishing this object. Paddy Connelly received his prelim inary hearing, Saturday last, and was bound over in the sum of «500 for assault, with intent to kill C. F. Ice land, City Marshal. The other com plaints have not been tried yet. - Rand & Howe have been retained by the prisoner for his defense. Connelly is feeling remarkably well, or possesses wonderful nerve, as he was in high spirits before the trial, and when asked by the Judge if he were the défendent in the case replied jocosely that he must be as he got the worst of it. No bonds were furnished so he was re manded to jail. J. 8. Vincent, of the Kendrick Advo cate, spent Saturday and Sunday in Lewiston. He will soon make, a trip to Portland where he expects to pur chase a new outfit of types and presses for the purpose of starting a new news paper at Kendrick. The name of the new venture is the Kendrick Gazette, and the first publication will appear early in the new year. Mr. Vincent has successfully managed the Advocate under a lease from its proprietor, H. Frost, now for nearly a year, and on its change of ownership he seeks to hold his patronage with a new paper. Mr. Stookey succeeds Mr. Frost in the own ership of the Advocate. Nature is full of surprises here in the interior of Idaho, and hardly a day goes by but some new discovery is be recorded. This week there has been shown in town a specimen of rock for mation resembling red shale. It is fine grained rock, yet wry tenacious and durable in its texture. Its chief use would seem to be that of ornamen tation. R. 8. Beale has already made a practical illustration of its qualities in this direction by making a piece of re lief work from a slab of the rock. He has carved in relief a piece of fruit work consisting of a bunch of grapes, an ap ple aud a pear, add the delicate tracings of leaf and branch and stem shows how susceptible the new rock is to the finer work that cau lie done in carving and relief work. The new rOck will be a valuable acquisition to the building material of the coast. lic AT THE OPERA HOUSE The Caroline Gage Company Enter tains the People. The Caroline Gage company have been delighting Lewiston audiences with choice selections of drama and comedy this week. The company came highly recommended by the pub lic and the press, and they fully sus tain all that bos been Said about them. They opened here Monday night in "Our Boys," a choice bit of pure com edy and completely carried the town with their rendition of It. There is not weak part in the play. Caroline Gageas Mary Melrose at onee took hold on all with her sweet, winning, easy style of presenting her part Kent Thomas in theVfle of Talbot Champ neys, the supreme "too utterly utter" dude made a most decided hit on the audience. There is nothing stagy, strained or affected in their work. The whole cast of "Our Boys" is a strong one and deserves particular recommen dation. A Lewiston audience has not been shaken up so in many a day. Tuesday night the troup presented the celebrated Greek play, "Pygmalion and Galatea." This is one of Miss Gage's favorite roles and Indeed it is difficult to see how her acting can be Improved upon. As a statue she is superbly beautiful, and her waking from the cold marble into^llfe is as if the stone did really breathe. Miss Gage's acting shows that sbe has a truly artistic con ception of her part. Her waking into a world of sense and thought, her in nocence, her pure and simple thoughts, all are portrayed with proper merit, and with a soul and feeling that touches and holds all her auditors. Miss Gage shows so clearly the strange incongruities that exist in this life of ours, and bow strange they would seeui to being born but yesterday but with full powers to see and compre hend. Night aud day, hope and fear, life and death are mingled so myster iously in this "strange, strange world" of ours that Galatea is sorely puzzled to comprehend it all. The play is full of delicate humor and pathos, all the re sult of poor Galatea's innocence. Miss Gage's delineation of the character is excellent and well merits the highest praise. Miss Lydia Knott as Cynlsea, Pygmalion's wife, is also a charming artist and is fast gaining a hold on the people. Last night the play was Camille but it came to late to be re viewed in this issue. The company will play all the week here and there are some rich treats of comedy ahead Tonight the play is The Honeymoon tomorrow night, Oliver Twist, and Saturday, Mr. Burnes of New York, a play surely filled with humor and unadulterated fun. THE FI FTH S HOOT. Company "I" is from all reports fairly in it", when it comes to a com parison of attendance and proficiency in regular drills. From all over the state the papers are bringing the com plaint that the local companies are getting careless and indifferent in re gard to drill and discipline. Company I" keeps well braced up. The boys are out for the medals and on every drill night there is a good strong at tendance, and at every regular shoot the majority are on hand. The World's Fair draws near and Company "I" has a notion to have that free pass, Look out for them.

The improvements oh the streets pro ceed slowly but they do proceed, and for this fact even the public is truly grateful.

The gravel used is of a splendid quality. Mr. Richards is do ing good work on the street improve ments. The Teller again urges the plan of coating tbe entire length of Main street.

The state supreme court this week decided that the state board of equaliz ation had no right or power to equal ize assessments by classes. This virtu ally means that all the work performed by the board in relation to the assess ment of 1891 is Invalid. The decision of the court created a great deal of com ment in the state. The history of the ease Is as follows: When the assessment of the taxable property of Bingham county came be fore the board of equalization it was fouud that the railroads in that county had been taxed an amobnt considerably in excess of that fixed by other coun ties in the state. The board deemed it advisable to lower the railroad assess ment, and, deciding that the Utah A Northern was a branch line, made a reduction of (3000 per mile on all of the road within the state north of Poca tello, and made a reduction of (1000 per mile upon the property of the Oregon Short Line, both of which roads are of the Union Pacific system. At the same time the board increased the assessment upon the sheep and cattle of Bingham and other counties, the members of the board coilsidering the county assessor's appraisments too Sample Orr, a resident of Bingham county, through Attorney T. M. Stewart, petitioned the supreme court to issue a writ of certiorari commanding the members of the board of equaliza tion to appear before the court, to gether with an abstract of their pro ceedings, in order that it might be de termined whether the body had ex ceeded its iurisdlotion. Mr. Orr's prayer was granted, and on Tuesday last the proceedings in review were had, the result being the late decision The concluding paragraph is as fol lows: It is therefore considered and adjudged by this court that all the acts complained of in the said petition to wit: The order of said board of Sept. 18,1891, fixing the valuation of the main lines of the Oregon Short Line railway and the Union Pacific railway system in Bingham county; the order on the same date fixing the value of all telegraph lines In said county; the «D years thastsadsid. tmWH m 9» --- <§m i tut 0» ÎLuiui» A Pure Cream Tartar Powder ROYAL, Contains Ammonia. TAYLOR'S ORR SPOOK. Contains Alua and Ammonia. a of Dr. Price gives larger and fuller cans than those of any other Baking Powder manufacturer. Above cut represents the comparative size of one pound can each *'Dr. Price's," Royal" and "Taylor's One Spoon." These cans were •et side by side, then photographed down in exact proportions to admit the plate in this space. Ask your grocer to set a one pound çnn of any other brand alongside 1 lb. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder, and observe the difference, as illustrated above. Adulterated powders may usually be detected by their heavier bulk, as shown by the small cans, and these scantily filled, often containing a circular to help fill out the cans. It is a singular fact that many of the ammonia and alum baking powders are advertised as "Absolutely Pure," All official examinations prove that it would be safe to reject all powders labeled absolutely pure. The economy in using Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder does not consist alone in the fact that much larger and fuller cans are given, but Dr. Price's is a stronger, purer and more wholesome bak ing powder than any other known. Does better utork, and goes farther, hence more economical in every way. • What woman would use an ammonia or alum baking powder if she knew it ? Such powders not only undermine the health, but ammonia gives to the complexion a sallow and blotched appearance. Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder is reported by all authorities as free from ammonia, alum, lime, or any other adulterant. The purity of this ideal powder has never been questioned. (Refuse all Substitutes—they may conceal ammonia or allum. A to be order of the said board entered on the 21st day of September, 1801, declaring the Utah A Northern railway, running from Pocatello north to the Moutana llue, a branch Une, and fixing Its value at (6000 per mile; the order on the same day adding 10 per cent, to the assessed valuation of cattle In said county; the order of September 22,1801, fixing the assessed valuation of sheep in Bingham county at 2:50 per head; were' each and all made without authority of law, and are void." Attorney-General G. H. Roberts ■aid toa reporter: "I have not yet seeu the opinion, and therefore can say nothing In regard to It In due time I will make a statement If you desire it I will state this however: Defective legislation is to blame for this peculiar situation and not the board of equalization." : By the decision of tha court the amount of the taxes of the Union Pa cific Railroad Company Is swelled to the extent of away over (100,000. D. C. Lockwood, one of the company's attorneys, said last night that the taxes had been paid after the assessment toll had been altered by the.state board and that the moneys paid the Bingham county assessor had been duly reoeiptod for. He modestly refrained from ex pressing an opinion as to whether Gould's railroad would pay an addi tional hundred thousand or so, but mid the. company had no desire to evade any law. The Scientific American.—No publi cation comes to our table that is more highly prized than this old, substantial journal. Aside from keeping the pub lic folly pasted respecting new Inven tions and scientific developments, it contains a vast amount of the practical and useful. The engravings are of remarkable high order, and matter ac companying them Is so tersely put that such subjects as might, under or dinary circumstances, be considered dry aud heavy, are not only readable, but highly enjoyable. It is the beat conducted scientific journal in the United States, as well as being typog raphically the handsomest. Its circu lation is larger than all the others of its clam combined.
