Entered at the Lewiston Postoffiec as 8» »and Class Mail Matter. THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 1892. The Kendrick Gazette, the new en terprise of Kendrick, is a fresh, breezy ■beet that shows up the interests of Kendrick and the Potlateh region, as only one acquainted with the locality can. Jos. Vincent, the recent propri etor of the Advocate, contredis the new )»per and judging from his manuge tnent of the Advocate, we can assure the success ot the new venture. Because Boise Is the capital of the State Is no reason why all conventions Should be held there. She has thus far had her share of them, and it is tq he hoped that in selecting the place tor holding the conventions those who will be chosen as delegates by the dif ferent counties for that purpose, will remember that at least one should be held in north Idaho.—Hope Prospector. The possibility of a Fife succession keeps English statesmen In a state of nervous anxiety and public business U likely to be neglected until a wife is ehoeen for Prince George. While the duke of Fife is described as a well meaning and fairly popular man his Change of residende to Windsor would make royalty unpopular in its strong hold with the higher classes. The death of the ruling khedive of Egypt has caused some confusion in the affaira of that country, and France and Russia are objecting against the English suzerainty. Of course Great Britain is already in possession, and it will take more than a simple protest from the European powers for her to withdraw her army of occupancy. It Is very likely that the control of Egyp tian affairs will continue in British hands, and it is better tor the country that it should be so. Wayward Utah will be again at the doors of congress, seeking admission. She has seen her Juniors, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana attain statehood while she has been rejected, although greater In population and wealth. Alaska excepted, Utah is the last foot of soil under the territorial system north of Oklahoma and Arizona. States like our own that know the drawbacks of that system will wish that some means tnay be found to rescue Utah perma nently from Mormonlsm so that she may take the place that beilts her in the American Union. The result of despotic law is not al ways injurious as ts shown by the re cent action of the Czar who has ordered the purchase of several million bushels of wheat for his starving subjects, and accompanies the order with', the state ment that a reasonable price shall be offered and If not accepted by specula tors who have been buying up grain to corner the market, the*graln shall be taken and the owners compelled to ac cept the compensation offered. The polity ts commendable and sharks who prey upon the life blood of their fellow men should be summarily dealt with. The testimony of the surgeons who attended to the wounded American sailors In Valparaiso, during the recent riots shows acts of brutality on the part of the Chilian authorities which are hardly excusable. In one or more in stances the doctors desired to take the wounded men on board the Baltimore, and this was refused until one of the men was considered in a dying condi tion, and he died soon after removal. As the facts are becoming] known the case is more complicated, and it Is very evident that however the matter may be settled, there will not he good feel lng on tiie part of American citizens toward Chill. Highest of all in Leavening Power.— Latest U. S. Gov't Report king à Pi Fowler ABSOLUTE!?? PURE Tile (heat Northern railroan will be completed to Spokane early next year, and it is not at all probable that it will go no fartiie-. The vast agricultural country of the Palouse and Potlatch, with the millions of tons of produce to carry every year, we think will attiact the attention ot the projectors. The carrying of tills vast tonnage cannot be secured at Spokane, hence the road must be built into tills country to s< - cure it. Another year at most will see the Great Northern running through this country and competing for its share of trade.—Mirror. Idaho's representatives in congress have declared their intention to assist, in every possible way, the congress men from Oregon in securing the pass age of the hill introduced by him ask ing an appropriation of $80,000 for the purpose of making Hnake river naviga ble from Huntington bridge to a point near the Seven Devils mining camp, thus o|K'ning Snakeriverjonavigation for a distance of about 2(50 miles. The Idaho delegation certainly should work for this measure, since the open ing and development of the richest mines in the state depends to a great extent upon the navigation of the river between those points. Powerful as the guns of the monitor Miantonoinoh, the massive Iron-clad coast defense vessel of the harbor of New York, those of the new floating fort now being built in California, the Monterey, will be much more formida ble. There is litt e doubt that this ship, as a fighting machine, will sur pass anything afloat. She will be soon ready for duty, as inspired by the pos sibility of war, every available man is at work upon her. She is to have two twelve-inch guns, two ten-inch guns and six six-pounder rapid fire rifles. One of the twelve-inch guns is now en route from the naval gun factory at Washington to San Francisco, and the second will be forwarded as soon as possible. The Miantonoinoh and Mon terey are Uncle Sum's surest peace makers. One of tiie popular nnd importai t subjects before the present congress is the movement for the election of Un'- | ted States senators by direct vote of the people. It is one subject at least of national interest upon which party lines will not he drawn, and from this fact alone Its advocates derive much encouragement of ultimate success. The election of senators by state legis latures has too often proven u costly and unsatisfactory experiment. The citizens of Idaho have some recent his tory on the point that Is both edifying and Instructive. A careful study of the contest cases of the last ten years will convince the most conservative that evils are multiplying under the present system. Corporate Influence has been too often a potent factor in the election of senators by the state legislatures. Corruption and bribery are frequently charged and dead locks and party quar rels are items of daily comment. The equal rights of the states should not be changed by the proposed amendment, hut a change in the mode of election would certainly be prudent and bene ficial. _ Congressman Sweet's bill for the preservation of Idaho forests contains these features: The bill provides that lands shall be granted in trust to the state. The state shall not prohibit the cutting of timber for mining and do mestic purposes; charges may be made by the state for wood aud stumpage to secure sufficient fluids with which to carry out the purposes of the act; ex portation of logs and lumber shall be prohibited by the state; the legislature is authorized to euact laws to preserve timber belts bordering on the arid re gions of the state regardless of home stead laws, but no act of the legislature shall interfere with the right to enter on uny non-arid land. It further pro vides that forest lands shall be classified at the pleasure of the state aud maps made showing the class! 11 eatiou. These maps upon approval ot the secretary of the interior shall be the official map of lands held iu trust, aud advertisement made of the boundaries of this land and settlers given the right to protest and uppeal as in other land cases. Secretary Elkins sent to the house a report from Captain Symonds urging that the appropriation for the improve ment of the upper Columbia and Snake rivers be extended for improvements further up the river than at present al lowed by the river and harbor act. At present It is understood the appropria tion must tic limited to the portion of the river between Celilo on the Colum bia and Lewiston on the Snake.

This year about 5,000 tons of grain were shipped from Asotin, and next year this will be doubled. The cost of re moving obstructions between these point« will not be great and the impor tance of the improvement cannot be doubted. He incloses a communica tion from E. W. Baughman urging the improvement. Besides the suggestions made by Captain Symons, he says: "There are several bars oil the river be tween Lewiston and Riparia, and the only way they can be improved will be by a proper system of wing dams at Big Goose island, Diamond point and Log Cabin island. It will take an act of congress to make the changes sug gested."
