I « liuvcrnur Still on Ihr SunJ and the Questions Arc Not tu His I.iking. \\ ashiugton, March 2S.—The ancient hostility between Chairman Hull and Representative Lent/. of the Cœur d'Alene investigating committee culminated in a small tint at this morning's meeting. The lie was passed and re passed and the "hole of the democratic minority be came involved. Threats of throwing ad versaries out of the window were all but fulfilled. The trouble originated in Lentz's cross-examination of Steunenberg, wli is still on the witness stand. Iliaque ti°ns were particularly offensive to the governor, who considered many of them personal insults. Taking up the charac ter of deputies employed after the riots, Lent/ tried to make it appear that Steu nenberg tetained ex convicts and men of the most immoral type. In particular he referreo to one St Clair, an alleged dep uty, who in the Corcoran trial admitted under oath that he was living with a no torious woman, and hail lately been re leased from the Montana penitentiary. "Weren't your deputies ex-convicts ami consorts of prostitutes?" demanded Mr Lentz. Before the governor could reply his at torney, Judge Chaney, was on his feet. "That charge is absolutely false, and I hurl it back in your teeth," he shouted to Mr. Lentz. The whole committee was in an uproar. "If you didn't have the majority of this committee behind you I would throw you out of the window for that," roared Mr. Lentz at his new opponent. "Why don't the chairman rule him out of or der? I want to say that if the chairman means to defend the witness in such a falsehood he is a party to it. and I hurl that in your teeth, Mr. Hull." The confusion that followed was tet rilie. The democratic members were ; I I i lo j s * was rilie. The democratic members were siding w ith Lentz in his resentment of Chaney's slur. "I want to say right now that I know what I shall do if the attorney for Gov. Steunenberg makes such an attack on me. This room won't Ik* big enough for both of its," shouted Mr. Hay of Vir usually one of the most placid of glim men. "Whenever that lawyer declares that any member of this committee is a liar there is only one tiling for him to do, either apologize or fight," shouted old General Covof Tennessee,above the din. "The only thing we can <lo is to expel him from the committee, ami I move that 1 e be so expelled," cried Jett of 11 - limns Me imvi ile the unfortunate Judge Chaney 1 ad managed to make himself heard ab< >vc the confusion. ' I didn't mt**u to s ty that Mr. Lentz was a liar," he c ried. "Then apologize," shouted Mr. t ox, tml Chaney accordingly a polo Th it tlH >ve quieted the ruction for a time, but as soon as the committee had adjourne« Hull and Lentz were at it agaii . L ending tar over the table, bis eves flash tig, the little congressman from Iowa fair! y shouted at big Mr. Lentz. "I give you air warning now that this com mitU c ro< mi will never hohl both of us if you ver talk io me that way again." Mr Lv ntz squared back for a fight, whit tin infuriated Iowan kept on. "You have go, a ml I won't stand your insults any more Don't you ever dare talk tome that way again ; don't you tiare. I give you r air earning." • i out you ever talk to me that way, then " r» torted Lentz; "I won't stand it, eitlu give you warning not to talk to mr as you bave. You havn't treated ie decently at any time." "I don't take you for any model of de* ency," snapped Hull. "You are no criterion of deceit cÿ your elf," growled Lent/, ferociously. The t.vomen were still wrangling when lin'd ended the fight temporarily by lcav 11 g tlu* room with friends. r. Lentz continued the cross ques tioning.

At a meeting in Spokane he told the ; mine owners that there would be nomod I ideation of the permit system The mine I owners were opposed to this system and i wanted to employ the men they chose. Hut the governor said he had informed them that the state of Idaho would not permit the employment of criminals. He had made no statement as to how long the permit system would continue, but lie said lie intended to enforce it ns U ng as it seemed necessary to insure order. Mr. Lentz asked if this meant that the governor would do ns he pleased on the subject. The witness replied that he would do as his judgment dictated. If the permit system had resulted in a loss to the mines of half a million dollars, as Mr Lentz staled, the governor said he did not care for that, as it was a neces sary recourse of the state. ''Like Louis XIV, you are the state?" remarked Lentz. Lentz's allusion to Louis XIV caused a prolonged discussion. The sensational episode occurred at this point. ■ » spting wtat ter | _ . . . prise for the people of Spokane to visit 1 1 ^ 1 , I tne Lewiston valley. On mv own lawn I GLORIES OF LEWISTON VALLEY L. A. Porter Describes the Prospects to a Review Reporter. L. A. Porter of Lewiston, owner of one of the largest fruit farms in the north west, arrived in Spokane Thursday to j participate in the reception of William J. j Brvati. In speaking of the prospects of the coming fruit season he said: "While it would l»e a surprise to the eastern people to find s at Spokane, it would be a greater sur have rose bushes in bud; hyacinths, nar cissus and tulips are in bloom. The or chards are now beauty spots, with the bloom of the apricot, peach ami cherry. The pear and apple trees w ill be in bloom in a day or two. Teas, potatoes, rad ishes. turnips and cabbage are all grow ing nicely in the garden. the fruit crop has never looked better than at the present time. To every ten carloads of fruit shipped last year we will ship fully nx) this, unless some thing unforeseen presents. The fruit growers, who are feeling encouraged at the present outlook, are taking precau tionary measures to protect their fruit from the insects which have lieen so prominent within the last few years. Each grower realizes that it requires thorough and systematic work to keep in check those pests, so as to produce fruits that can be sent to any market in the world. "As each year advances we find we are to look to sections for year we obliged to look to new sections for our markets. In a small wav we have been shipping not only to the eastern states, but a few carloads of apples and pears have been sent to the London market with very satisfactory results. I cannot give the exact shipments of fruit from our section, but can say that I personally shipped over 160 carloads to the eastern markets and one to Kugland. It may be a surprise to some of youi readers to know that each year we are able to sell apples in Kansas City,Omaha, St. Louis and New York at satisfactory prices. Of course it requires a carefully grown and selected product. The north west can and does produce fruits that have no equal on the entire globe. While at the present time a limited quantity of the superior grades are grown, it is only due to the negligence or carelessness in planting varieties not of the highest grade. "Yes, we intend to hold our first agri cultural or fruit fair at Lewiston this com ing fall. At the same time we shall, at heretofore, occupy a prominent place in Spokane's exposition, as we realize that it is a great advertising medium for us. We are always glad to accept of the hos pitalities of the Spokane people at their annual fairs." Will Take the Bond'. Will Take the Bond'. There w ill be an offer submitted at the April meeting of the Board of County Commissioners. This offer will come through Geo. A. Klder of Duluth, who recently visited Lewiston and made an investigation of the situation. He satis fied himself and his company of the legality and validity of the warrants and of the fact that the warrants couid be ex changed ft r the bonds He was so well pleased with the situation that an imme diate offer would have been made if the lioard had been in session. His offer will lie formally marte at the April meeting., Mr. Flrter statert when here that there would have been no trouble if eastern stors could be convinced as he was of the splendid resources of Nez Perce county Will Change the Route. The Northern Pacific is preparing t<* make some changes in the location of its roadlK'd between Potlatch and Juliaetta. A corps of surveyors is now engaged in running a line along on the north hank of the creek. The purpose is evidently to take the roadbed out of the creek and place it above high water mark along the north bank. When the road was first constructed the engineers planned to change the course of the stream and build the road 011 the lower levels. But the experience of the past few months has convinced them that the creek needs the w hole of the lower level to operate in «luring its busy season, ami conse 1 quentlv the railroa«i must look higher for 1 the location ot its permanent tr ick. It Is Belicvea That Fully 15,000 Foreign Troops Have Been Added to Their Forces. THEY ARE ALERT AND ACTIVE. I.K>k 10 the Ascendant — Column Believed to He Safe. Late dispatches received in London indicate that the Boers are having a little g<Mw| luck ami are showing some bold ness again, as a raiding party estimated at 400 is ladieved by the British at War renton to have crossed the KunWrley Bloemfontein wagon road Monday and to have headed for Jacobsdal w ith the in tention of cutting the railway ten miles west. Commandant Olivier appears to have gotten his 5000men ami twenty-five miles of wagons into 1 tigged country where he can make an easy rear guard defense Charles Williams, the Kttglisli military expert, says: "If this column gets ^ iroU g|j substantially Commandant Oli .vier will have carried out the great feat r .. .. . . of the war, seeing that he seeing that lie ran every chance of lie ing ground between the upper millstone of Roberts' army and the nether millstone of the broken Bu.suto frontier. He will have done this within fifty miles or so of Lord Roberts' main strength. Certainly it looked fora week ns though Lord Rolierts held Olivier in the hollow of his hand. If Olivier gels through to Krooustadt with even 31^1 men it will Ik* an important addition t< the Boer gathering there. His escape if attributable in part to the wornout condi tion of the British cavalry horses. Lord Roberts' transport appears to have been badly dislocated by the loss at Riet rive before Cronje's surrender of tlu* wagon train, and in addition to tins the army with which he proposes to advance to ward Pretoria is nearly double t »at of tlu* earliei rapid movements. The Boers are concentrating in force alK>ut fifteen miles north ot Bloemfontein in the rear of Glen, and Lord Roberts is sending forward troops to engage them. The Seventh infantry division and part The Seventh infantry division and part of General French's cavalry have been sent up to join the Fourteenth brigade and the two cavalry regiments that are holding Glen and its environs. It does not seem probable that the Boers will give serious battle in the fairly open country north o f (Men. Still their evi dent strength indicates more than a corps of observation. In small affairs the Boers are daringly aggressive in all parts of the field of war. The Johannesburg mounted police, esti mated bv the Boers to be their best mounted commando, are raiding the country near Bloemfontein, harassing the farmers who have given up their arms to the Britisfi and carrying off cattle. The Boers have reoccupied Campbell and are in strength near Taungx and Barkley West. Lord Methuen and the forces that have been operating in the Barkley district have been recalled to Kimberley by Lord Roberts. Ne» explanation has been given I for this, but the mounted troops are dis satisfied at having been ordered back. According to Pretoria advices Mafeking was bombarded for seven hours on Tues lay. It is reported in London in a well in formed quarter that Lord Kitchener will be offered the post of commander-in-chief in India, succeeding the late Sir William Lockhart, so soon as decisive successes have lieen obtained in the Transvaal, and Lockhart, so soon as successes have lieen obtained in the Transvaal, and that General Sir Archibald Hunter w ill succeed him as Lord Roberts' chief of staff. Only a small part of Gatacre's forces have yet arrived at Bloemfontein, and until that movement is completed it is not likely that Huberts will start for Pre toria.

Final Decision on Land Contest The local land office received yester day the secretary of the interior's de cision in the contest of Peru Nosier vs. the heirs of Jacob Blume. This decision is in the favor of Nosier, thus c.mfirtiling the decision of the local office and also that of the commissioner, Ringer Her man.

This is the first return from the secretary on any case passed upon since Mr. Gar by has iK-en in the office Steyn Speaks London, March 30—The correapond- ! cut of the Times at Lorenzo Marquez, telegraphing Monday, says: Mr Steyn has issued a circular letter dealing with the proclamation of land Roberts and d> daring it to I that the enemy's policy is, as it always has lieen in South Africa, to divide and' lomiuate his opponent. The circular goes on to say that Ik* fore j the war "Great Britain attempted to se duce the Free State by treacherous means : from its, sole"." conception with the Transvaal in order to facilitate the swal w ing up of the republic." Hundreds of younger Boers, including officers, are being arrested for desertion. A large number of men over 60 years of age are being commanderai, alt bough not legally liable tor service According to trustworthy information from Pretoria the total stock of Mauser ammuuition---5,oou,ooo rounds—was is sued to the Free State burghers. Tlu* Boers are now issuing Lee-Metford car tridges, of which they have only 500,000« and Martini Henry cartridges, of which they originally possessed 4,1x10,000. The creusot ammunition is almost exhausted. The smokeless powder which was iirnuu factored is proving deficient in quality and the experiment of recharging the Mauser cartridges had proved a failure, owing to tlu inability of the Boers to make cans.
