Monday morning at alxnit 3 o'clock a fire started in the Banquet restaurant in the Theissen building known as the "Old Corner'* and the restaurant and Felix Warren's saloon were both burned to the ground. The fire caught from the kitchen of the restaurant. The night man, Mr. Head, was asleep on the kitchen table at the time and was awakened by the roaring of the flames. The fire spread rapidly aud created a great heat. The fire company directed its efforts when it arrived toward keeping the fire from spreading to other buildings. The damage to surrounding buildings was considerable, but was con fined to the cracking of plate glass in the buildings across the street. The buildings destroyed by fire were owned by J. D. Thiessen and were in sured for $1,500. Felix Warren & Co. had $2,000 on their stock and fixtures and the restaurant fixtures were insured at $500. The damage to plate glass on the surrounding buildings is estimated as follows: M. Donzac It Co., $31x2; C. C. Bunnell, $390; Lewiston National liank, $ux>; Hinnard building, $11»; Owl saloon. Artesian Water. Lewiston valley must have artesian water. This conviction is fast gaining ground, and nothing short of absolute failure will convince the people that the contrary is true. Char'es Francis Adams and the Vineland company are seeking to interest the government ill making a ; geological survey of the Clearwater coun try, with an idea ol determining among other tilings the probability of artesian water for Lewiston valley. Mr. Russell, the government engineer who made the survey in Yakima and pronounced upon the probabilities for Moxee basin, will j probably have clnrge of the geological survey for the Clearwater country. Meanwhile the citizens of Lewiston may put down a test well. S. G. Isaman offers $1000 (in land) for any one who will put a successful flowing well on his fruit farm. Other plans are being forum lated, among them the formation of a stock company which could, in case of success, sell.water to other residents and recoup themselves for the expense of putting in the well. With flowing wells all alamt the edges of the basiu that dips into Lewiston valley, it seems more than probable that artesian water could Ire se cured here if any organized effort were made to secure it.

Telle* JettraaUtm. \ . Has the Spokesman-Review gone into Spoke _ ! the field of yellow journalism ? is the question the citizens of Lewiston are ask j ing since they read the effusion pub-, lished by that journal Sunday morning purporting to l>e a report of the action taken by the republicans in their county convention of .Saturday last. With a bias of malice ami prejudice, aided by a robust imagination, the correspondent furnished a sensational report which is utterly void of truth. The meeting in question was |>erfectlv harmonious. There was neither faction iior friction, combination nor con tention in the proceedings of the conven tion. There is absolutely no truth in the report sent to the Review. The citizens are wondering whether that able journal has changed its policy of furnishing to the public authentic news and has des ceuded to the plane of yellow journalism to indulge in giving utterauce to the vap orings of every peripatetic wordmonger that chances to send in copy. —Cudahy's Celebrated Rex brand ol hams and bacon at Wildeuthaler's.
