This family has the sy mpathy of all who know them, in this bereavement. John Sparks the Nevada cattleman and employer of "Diamond Field" Jack Da vis, now under sentence of death at Al bion for killing two sheep men in Febru ary, 1896, was liefore the board of pardons Thursday, and made a statement in lie half of Davis. He declared that on February 9, 1896, J.E. Bower told him at his room in a hotel in Ogden that Jeff «lid the shooting. The story told was similar to the one told by Gray and Bow. er in their affidavits. Mr. Sparks said he was on his way east with a train of cattle. The board will hear the arguments again to-day. J. J. Bennett, the Nez Ferae City min ing man, is in the city again. He still has great faith in the old camp. He spent several weeks in there last fall and he knows all aliout the new interests which aae lieing developed. He drew flattering conclusions from the physical facts he has observed. This camp is surely coming right to the front, in sym pathy with the neigbl oring districts; in fact, it is very apparent that one contin uous mining lielt extends along the Bitter Root slopes, and the year 1899 will ad vance every one of the old anti the new districts to important camps along the great lielt. The cattle supply of the Potlatch has got down to the actual neeils of the farm ers themselves, and they refuse to sell any more. It looks as though we will have to buy our meat in Spokane. Even the hog market feels the influence of the increased demand front the railroad builders, and buyers of camp supplies are paying as much as eight cents per pound for dressed hogs. This has served to put the holders of hogs on the alert, and hence there seems to lie a general opinion that this fixes the price. It is the old story of liigli-priced wheat with few hogs, and now that conditions are changed with the price of oats and bar ley above wheat, some are turning their attention to hog raising again to feeil 40 cent wheat. The Medal Contest. The medal contest conducteil by the local W. C. T. U. last night was a decided success. There were four contestants, all from the normal school, and all young men. The program was four adilresses on temperance themes. Edward Doyle made the introductory address, ami then L. G. Peterson, Mr. McMinomy and Mr. Halsey. The audience was to judge of the mer its of the respective addresses by ballot. The plan of voting became a subject of discussion. The president of the local union suggested that each voter cast three ballots, two for the names of the winner of the medal and one for seconil choice. Somebody who had evidently lieen a political primary worker suspi cioned a trick in the double plan, and it caused some discussion. Rev. Skipworlli was quoted on the proposition. The minister resente«l the use of liis name, but the one vote issue carried. Mr. Halsey was voted the winner of the medal, and L. G. Peterson was awariled a liook as the secoml choice. The victors are members of the Clioniau society of the normal. Burned to Death. A three year old daughter of A. T. McCarty of Melrose was burnt to death last Wednesday evening. Mr. McCarty hail lieen in the hills looking after cattle during the day and his horse rolled from a trail and broke the animals neck. This accident detaineil Mr. McCarty away from home so that it liecanie necessary for the mother to leave the child in the house while she fed and milked the cows. After the lady had lieen aliout the corral aliout twenty minutes she heard the child scream. At the same time she saw the flash of a flatne as the door of the house swung open. The child a glaring mass of fire came running and screaming toward its mother. She met and smothered the fire with snow but the tender flesh was burnt to a crisp.

He has pursues! this calling for a numlier of years in Lewis ton in Gaut's basement shop and he is a master of the tonsorial art. For a month he has hail an interesting partner who has worked at the next chair. Shorty has eyed him and the I stranger has lieen attracted to Shorty by 1 some invisible influence. The men though mutually attracted were shy of each other. But finally the new comer revealed his name and Shorty was puz zled more than before. The name was the one he bore till he was stolen at nine years of age. Again the strange diffulences kept the men from exchang ing confidences till three weeks had gone by.

After exchanging greetings and recitals of bits of family history the brothers celebrated in thy natural way for barliers to celebrate. GENERAL NEWS.

The prisoners declare, and information from San Juan tends to sus tain them, that the alleged robbery was a plot upon the part of Spanish officials to cover up their delinquencies and to obtain scapegoats for the Spanish pay master at San Juan, who, it is further as serted, was probably a party to the dis honesty in appropriating tho funds. The board of pardons lias examined many other prisoners, and bas recommended to General Brooke the release of sixtv seven who are in confinement. For Sale.
