One year in advance.......................$ 2 - 5 Six months..................................- 1 - 5 Three months...............................- -75 Official Paper of Nez Perce County The Lewiston valley offers more natural facilities for the establish ment of large manifacturing enter prises than any other district in the United States. The water sys tem will ever guarantee unimpaired transportation for Lewiston which will guarantee against monopoly, in the carrying trade. The raw materials are at band for a wide range of manufacture in the Clear water basin. It is assured now that coal in large beds lies under our mountains near the deposits of iron, and a wide range of more precious metals. We have wood in great quantity and variety that can be brought to manufacturing centers by gravity systems. And we have unlimited water power. There are a hundred mountain streams that pour over natural damns, creating power enough to move all the mills in the world. This power is available for any chosen center of operation. It can be transmitted by electric currents from a thousand water falls to turn a thousand mills in Lewiston. In these natural facilities we have a heri tance that will pour fortune in our midst in the near future. A man in the Coeur d'Alenes forged a permit and secured work by presenting the forged document to his employer. This is a new crime under the law. It would have been interesting to follow this case through the criminal courts. Unfortunately the man escaped and the papers state that he is now an outlaw, persued by a force of deputies. His picture and hir de~ sci iption will doubtless be sent to the rogues' galleries all over the world. Unfortunately the extra dition laws do not name the crime of working for bread without a per mit. The monster may escape to Canada! ' He perhaps would have been captured but the Steunen berg force of deputies was re duced by thv detail that was work ing the Lewiston convention at the time the crime was discovered. The crime was discovered by a reviser of the permit system which was made necessary by the result of the late primaries in the Coeur d'Alenes. Aspirants for honors on the re publican ticket are now coming forword. The latest to announce themselves are W. J. McConnell and Chairman Morrison for the nomination for congress. Mr. Mc Connell, through friends in the south a few days ago, announced his intention of becoming a candi date for the nomination of congress man. And now Mr. Morrison has, through strong personal friends, indicated his wish to again lead the republican forces in Idaho for the fight as member to the lower house. Mr. Morrison has been state chairman of the republican central committee for the past two years and made a good record in that capacity; wa&the nominee for congress at the time of the party split In 1896, making a strong fight against overwhelming odds. The change of city administration takes place July ist. Important questions will^pass in review at that time. The water question is a live issue; and it will demand not only expression but action. The people expect a decided eforrn in the water system of the city. Nothing less than fire protection for the hill and a reduction of rates to consumers will satisfy a public requirement at the bands of the new city administration. If these conditions can be met without public ownership the council will bave the option to consider. A hasty purchase would, perhaps, be a reckless business proposition, while the questions of value and capacity are not satisfactorily de termined. The safe plan would be, perhaps, to await a trial for an artesian' water supply, or an inves tigation of other possible sources of supply. The democrats of Montana are bidding>for the expatricated voters of the Coeur d'Alenes. Many bouquets are thrown to the union leaders; and the great corporations are reducing the working day from ten to eight hours. It it some thing new to force campaign issues in diametrically opposite directions in adjoining states. The repub licans should have a walk-over in Idaho this year, when the permit system prevails on one side of the state line and premiums are paid tor the same citizenship on the other. Probably the most effective cam paign issue of the year is the volun tary establishment of the eight hour day in the Clark and Hienze mines of Montana. These inter ests employ thousands of miners The move on the part of Clark is said to be for political effect. Whether or not the senator with the stormy career can be credited with the sympathetic action of his associate or not is not explained It is believed, however, that thi^ last stroke of policy will have a better effect in the contest of the factions than the use of bribes had last year. In years past a premium was offered for a scheme that would convert a Missouri democrat. Steunenberg can claim the reward. Even Texas democracy is not as Certain as death in the face of Steunenberg's permit system. An effort should be made to have •our big wheat crop transported in bulk. The sacks to hold 10,000, 000 bushels of wheat will cost the farmers of the Lewiston valley $250,000. This expense is an ex travagant waste, occasioned only by a delay in the adjustment of matters ou the part of the trans portation companies. There is no other place in the United States where this tax is levied upon the wheat grower. • KENTUCK FERRY. The Kentuck ferry is back at its old place, at the mouth of Hatwai on Clear water. M. L.
