The Lewiston Teller.
—BY— C. A. Foresman, Publisher. Entered at the Lewiston Postoffice as second class mail matter. One year in advance».....................$2.50 ! Six months................................... i.joj Three mouths.................................75 ! Official Paper of Nez Perce County. The people should rise up In their might and demand a decent jail with more room and a drainage system that would not be a menace to the people. The Spokane papers are boom ing that city as the outfitting point for Buffalo. What is Lewiston doing? Are we sleeping while this opportunity goes by? Let us call a meeting and appoint an ad vertising club to let the public know we are alive. Lewiston is the gateway to a Klondike, but the gate seems to be wide open. Nez Perce couuty must bave new jail facilities. The demands have outgrown old structures. The county must keep up with the growth of the country or go out of business. Since the opening of the reservation andl the advent of the railroad the demands upon every public office have doubled and the boom of this year will double them again. The Spokesman-Review says: "After a third of a century of placid existance, during which the town has grown in wealth, stability, attractiveness, and all the elements of good citizenship, Lewiston has entered upon a new era. It finds itself the coveted gateway of competing railroads, and feels the thrill of expansion which follows the building of rail roads and the development of a surrounding region of uuusual pro ductive capacity. It seems that the men who laid the foundations of the new territory of Idaho built more wisely thau they knew. Prob ably Lewiston, In the next decade, will become the chief city of the state, and second only to Spokane as a center of industrial activity The statement published, that the republican officials do not pro pose to fulfill every campaign pledge is without foundation. The duties of the offices have all in creased more than anybody antici paled three months ago. The sheriff and recorder will be called upon to perform 100 percent more lal»or thau the retiring officers had to do in the same time. This con dition however will not impose extra taxes. The extra force the offices will be paid by the fees collected for the work performed. The county commissioners are asked to authorize the employment of a force sufficient to perforin this work, and meet the public de mands. The fees will pay the deputies. If the Work is done the public will be accommodated and the fees will be earned. If the work is not done for the want of sufficient force, public busines will suffer and the fees will not be paid. The campaign pledges of the re publican candidates are still in full force and effect. They do, how ever, ask permission to engage force sufficient to meet the public expediencies of the occasion. In the case of the auditor's office this w ill save the couuty $1800 annu- j ally 111« lead of $1000 as during lb* campaign. . , jl The report comes that the river improvement bill now before the legislature is meeting with deter mined opposition. The objections urged may lie to some special pro vision in this particular is good if the rights of the public are guarded property in conditions of the fran chise proposed. Our water traffic ways cod be improved to greatly facilitate commerce. They cannot lie used by the public without the expenditure of money in improve ment. If the Clearwater should lie boomed at this point and the logs of individuals could be stored therein the beuefite would lie ap parent lo all classes. The same piiucipk- applies to all mauner of improvement that may require large investments. The business of the rivers generally would very olteu be greatly eularged, as the business of the Clearwater would lie with a log storage system at this point that would he safe and could be used by the public. There should a liberal law to protect aud promote such investments iu general way. . promised * ! ! Real Estate a nd M ines...
