THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31, 1*91 Free coinage is to have a chance if the complexion of the coinage; com mittee signifies anything. Nine out of thirteen of the'present commit toe iiave declared in favor of free coinage. Senator Shoup in a recent interview •t Chicago, has given Idaho solid for Blaine at the coining republican con vention. Not only Idaho, hut the en tire Northwest would rally strongly about the "man from Maine." There Is talk of a new warden for the state penitentiary ami 'it should not end In talk merely. The carelessness and ineffleency of Warden Mack is every day made more and more appar ent. Idaho has certainly better official timber than that that makes up the present prison management. The death of Senator Plumb puts Senator Dolph, of Oregon, at the head nf the committee on public lands. This gives the Northwest another committee chairmanship. The North West is obtaining several advantageous positions in congress, and we may look Tor some benefits in the legislation of the present congress. New Mexico and Arizona will profi tably entef the union of states before the end of the present congress. Utah Will also be an applicant for admission, but lingering traces of Mormouism Will probably keep her out. It is quite probable that there will lie no opposition In either house to the admission of New Mexico and Arizona if they will agree not to vote for president next fall. The patriotism in regard to the Amer ican flag is about to meet duo recogni tion In congress, and a bill be passed to protect our national emblem against sacrilegious treatment. It will hardly meet with opposition in its passage. The bill is a brief one, authorizing the army department to sell Hags at cost to private citizens and (fraud Army posts, and making it a misdemeanor to use the stars and strip' s ns an advertise ment or for a political motto, and plac ing the punishment at either tine or Imprisonment. The reports of Dr. Peters, the great German explorer are not very favorable to him or the government he represents. The latest one which states that one hundred and twenty natives have just been kflied, is only exceeded in ferocity by the proceeding ones. If the devel opment of Africa depends upon the extermination of the natives, Germany la minting great progress in the work, but, If it depends upon fair dealings and elvllfzed methods, there must lie something radically wrong In the policy of the German government. California has engaged in the licet «ugar Industry ami lius just closed down its factories for the season. The total production of three factories for the season was 807000 pounds. On this the Revenue Office will pay a bounty of $101,000. The Industry is yet In Its infancy, hut has already proven itself a lucrative one. Idaho, it Is proved, lies largely in the beet sugar belt and can hope to enter successfully Into the the raising and manufactur ing of beet sugar. Some ot the hlle capital of the country should he directed to the development of tills in dustry, in our state. Pursuant to directions embraced in a letter front the president to the head of each department, the secretary of the treasury has completed u plan which will take effect the 1st of January, un der which all promotions in the treas ury department will hereafter be made ott a basis of merit only, and as a result of competitive examinations. Each examination for promotion to any grade will be confined to the clerks in the next lower grade and in the same Highest of all In Leavening Powers—Latest U. S. Gov't Report. ABSOUUTECT PURE ..nice or bureau. As a part of the plan tlier.' is said to be a daily record kept of each clerk liy the chief of Ills divis ion and in all examinations tills elli oieney record will is; the element of chief weight. The efficiency record gives the daily standing of each clerk for punctuality, attendance and con duct, including personal habits, accur acy, industry and general ability. This new departure will remove all promotions from the influence of i>oli tic s and official favoritism and places them exclusively on the basis of merit. From twelve United States ports we exported <!, 0 ,'i .'!,000 bushels of wheat and flour last week. The demand Airfreight cars is unparalleled. The railroads can not carry the grain from the interior to the sea-lxmrd fast enough, and there is a great blockade at Chicago in couse picnce. Tlie" Pennsylvania road has ordered 5000 new freight cars. Every Important railroad lias contracted for new rolling stock to cope with the un precedented demand for transjwirtatioii of the nation's crops. These are the salient features ot the national trade situation. Their importance cannot U» disputed even by the most inveter ate calamity prophet. With an im mense grain surplus in the United States; with the foreign demand for our cereals ctiiniorous and increasing; with the railroads choked with traffic, and the farmer getting high prices for ills wheat on the farm, the outlook is highly promising in every respect. A corporation lately affected at Boise City with such men as Gov. Willey, George Ainslie and quite a number of Boise people at the hack of it, called the "Idaho Development and Improve ment Company," will no doubt prove a benefit to the entire state. The prin cipal object of the organization is to aid in developing good mining properties. There are many men in Idaho who have valuable mining claims, but owing to lack of money they are not able either to operate them to such an ex tent as to make them available in the markets. The company will assist these men and aid in developing pros pects that in their judgment are worthy of it. It is tiie intention to secure stock holders in every county in the state and Hubsctipllon lists will soon be opened in Rocky Bar, Hailey, Bilver City, Moscow, Lewiston, and all points in the north. This is a move in the right direction und will do much toward developing the good mineral properties of Idaho. Judge Hanford Inis tiled an opinion in the United States district court in the case of the United States vs Lee Hoy, which is of great importance to Chinese merchant«! in this country. Judge Hantord holds in this case that a Chinaman who is a merchant in this country, permanently ^domiciled here, and who is permitted to return to the UniteiStates hy tho collector of cus toms after a short visit to Victoria, is not liuhle to be arrested and banished because the collector admitted him without tho production of a certificate as to the fact of ids heing a merchant, issued by the Chinese government. He holds that the decision of a collector of customs as to the right of a Chinese merchant to he admitted to the coun try will not he re-examined by the courts for the mere purpose of deter mining whether the action was based upon good evidence, and that a China man who is in fact entitled to bein this country and who has gained admit tance cannot he sent out, for the reason that tho law requires a judicial deter mination to tlie contrary before a war rant can be issued for tlie deportation of a Chinese person. That is, it must be adjudged that he is not one entitled by law to remain in this country. Tlie weights and measures received hy Secretary of Slate Piukham from the treasury department will soon be placed in his office, and then he will be ready to perforin another of his myriad duties, it will be remembered that tlie last legislature passed a law providing that trie standard of weights and measures in Idaho "shall agree exactly with the standard as recognized and furnished hy tlie United States." The secretary of state was made ex offieio sealer of weights and measures and it was provided that he "shall try and prove hy such standards all weights and measures, scales and beams that may belong to any county and l>e sent and brought to him fur that purpose by tlie county sealer, and shall seal such, when found to be ac curate, by stamping on them the letter I." It was further provided that the auditor of each county should be sealer of weights and measures for his county. He must procure at the ex|iense of the county weights a,id measures, scalA and beams and have them proved and sealed hy the secretary of state. After his instruments have been officially sealed and the county uuditor has given due notice, all iicrsone found using false or fraudulent weights, measures <>r scales are liable to a line of $20 for each offense.

The action of Liverpool merchants in refusing to make un exhibit at the World's Fair, is only exceeded in con temptahility by the excuse given for not making such an exhibit. If Liver pool merchants cannot compete with those of the U. S. on a fair business basis, they should go out of business or transfer their capital to where an in come can be derived from it. The statement that their wares would tic only copied by American manufacto ries admits of but two conclusions: either that they cannot compete with tlie manufacturers of tlie U. S. under the present laws, or that such wares are not now sold in the U. S. as they could, unless protected, have been cop ied long ere tills Hy Americans, even though manufactured at the North Pole. In order to secure political prestige and campaign capital for tlie coming political-contest in 1892, it is proposed to run the present congress on the cheese-paring basis of parsimonious niggardliness and false economy. The watchword will lie no appropriations for internal improvements, nor for har bor or const defense; no appropriation of money for necessary public buildings; no legislation for general physical health of the nation, little if any for the general repair of a decayed, rotten and depleted navy, and this, too, in the presence of the flaunted insults from one of the most degenerate and pigmy cox combical of nations—Chili. If this prove true it will not be in keeping with the ancient history of the demo cratic party in Its pristine history in | this country. Theu, when national honor was concerned it mounted the ramparts with a celerity equal to the most patriotic. Now, we shall see whether a morbid desire in an "Eco nomical" way will ullow the nation's flag to trail in the dust of humiliation. —Moscow Empire. J. B- Morris, M. D.
