The City Council Meeting.
Last Monday night was the occasion j
of the regular meeting of the Lewiston,
1 city council. There was an unusual j
! interest manifest by all present in the *
; enforcement of the ordinances oi the
1 citv «<*•> 'h* various officers were jollied
up to the strictest performance of duty
| ill the future. There was a kick regls
of'tered, not vigorous, hut. it is hoped
j effective, about the indfference if not

The city cemetery was the subject of
j some discussion by the council. The j i'
; sale of lots it seems, h»s been in the
I hands of nobody in particular and K
several différant, ones in general. In
fm-t the ease seems to lie one in which
j everybody's business Is tioliody's busi
J ness and both the city and public In
j terests had suffered in consequence,
i The cemetery committee was ordered
; p, lucid «te tlie subject for the benefit
■ ,,f the council at a future meeting.
J. W. Denny asked for a cross walk a

( ,f the business house in tlie northwest
quarter of the city,
L. J. Hornadav, us city assessor and

long li.-d of poll tax delinquents was
turned over to the city marshal for coi
lecting. The other matters for adjuse
ment were referred to the finance
Felix Warren's appointment u* dep

There was a fuli attendance at the
adjourned meeting last night. Tlie
ordinance which was prepured in ad
vance for tlie construction of sidewalks
on Fourth and Fifth streets wa* passed

vexed questions of pavement and

A Warren Letter.
Warrens, Idaho, Nov. 30.
j Editor Teller: I have received
* number of Inijuiriea in regard to the
new quartz discoveries ot Salmon river.
It is not possible at this early day to
form an v idea of its richness. How
ever, it is probable that it is equal to
Buffalo Hump. Tlie new camp is
easly reached from Warrens, being
only eighteen miles, and if traveled
daily the trail can be kept open all
winter. Hay and grain are scarce in
tins place. Toe stores, however,
are well stocked with a tine assortment
of provisions and miners supplies
There is no rea-on why the trail can
not be kept open all winter if traveled
daily form Lewiston and Boise,
and Weiser. I will not attempt to
give a description of the ledges at this
time. Ttiere are a number of prospect
ors outfitting at Warrens for tlie new
ca, "Pi and when peepie find out they
i' nn *?ct in here, and also to tlie new
camp on snow-shoes, there will he a
K r eat many more outfit at Warrens,
Winter lias tanly set in. Huow is
"bout 12 inches on the level in War
rens and deeper oil the higher m tint
aitts The wind seldom blow's very
hard in tlie Warrens basin, and tlie
snow does not drift like it does in more
exposed places. Tnere is some stir
among mining men in Warrens, with
a very good payroll for the begining of
winter. Tho rich quartz of this dis
trlct will soon attract the attention of
Ellis Church.
