A Favorable Report.
E. Barrow, electiical engineer and
profeHHor ill charge of that department
at Pullman, went with Pres. D. M.
Whim of the I>ewiston Light Co. to
inspect the site of the power plant pro
posed by the company in making ini-1
provenants in their service for next
year. Prof. Darrow was seeii by the
Tki.i.kk after his return and gives it
as his opinion that the pioposed plan
j is perfectly feasible. ft will lie easy at
j a comparatively low cost to get a plant
«ni Asulin creek to develop 1000 horse
j |H>wer. The transmission to Lewiston
; will Is* a simple engineering problem,
j ,-\ Unit ten |iercent of the |s>wer only
: will lie lost by the transmission.
Prof. Darrow exa mined tlie present
I plant and is confident that a complete
! new plant ean be put ill fitted with
the latest of modern apparatus and
j o|ierated with an increase of efficiency
and a decrease of cost that would pay
; double Interest ou the outlay of the i in
vestment. He was present Tue-dav
evening at a full meeting of the board
of stockholders and gave in detail his
1 observations and suggestions He will
dra.v up plans and make estimates for
operating a plant that will supply
light and power to Lewiston sufficient
for present needs and allowing for the
natural growth.
They are all Rigrnt.

The stage which left Lewiston last
Tuesday at noon was held up at
o'cloek Wednesday night one mile this
side <>f Orangeville. There were two
passengers, a traveling man and
miner. The night was very dark but
the flash of two rifles and the com
maud to halt made the fact apparent
that at least two desperate highway
men were present. The driver and
i They secured about $2ô trom the miner

whose name is Oarber. The drummer
was diligently searched from overcoat
to pants hut $80 In currency in a »mull
vest pocket was overlooked by the rob
j bers. They found only a few cents in
i silver in the drummer's |<ockets. The
driver. Allie Vincent, was also
searched. The robber who was as
signed to the work of searching the
pockets hesitated when he came to
the driver. His companion cursed him
aud accused him of cowardice when he
faltered. Alter the passengers were
searched the mail received attention.
A leather sack was tound in the boot
and the robbers evidently suptiosed U
to lie the register pouch. It happened
however that there were several leather
sacks and the one selected did not con
tain the registers. The sack was spilt
open hut nothing of value was found
in it. The passengers and driver after
all the hearty In sig..t was appropriated,
were ordered to take their seats. The
driver was ordered to turn back on the
road and return to Deliver upon pain
of lieing shot. The command was
obeyed so far as turning back was con
jcencerued. but utter proceeding 200
yards the stuge was again turned
toward O-angeville whence it pro*
ceedcd without molestation.
The particulars, so far as gathered,
indicate the presence of two blgh-wuy
men. They were masked in gunny
saeks and had horses hitched near tlie
scene of the robbery. The tracks in
the mud indicated that the robbers
rode into Grangeville in advance of
the stage. One of the robbers was tall
und (he other short. The tall man
was exceeding nervous and lie went
about his assiiiged duties in sileuee.
The short man taiked a great ileal and
ordered Ihb companion «bout as a tuas

and a posse were upon the ground curly

applied to Judge Pi|ier of tlie state di«'
