DAILY AND WEEKLY "" C. A. Forf.sman, Publisher. TELEPHONE 26 Entered at the Lewiston Postoffice as second class mail matter. One year in advance.......................$2.50 Si* months.................................... 1.50 Three months................................75 Official Paper of Nez Perce County National Republican Ticket: FOR PRESIDENT WILLIAM McKINLEY, of Ohio FOR VICE-PRESIDENT THEODORE ROOSEVELT, of New York The I,ewiston valley fair is at tracting a general interest. The stockmen are fully aroused to the importance of the enterprise. The farmers and fruit growers are pre paring to exhibit their products and take a holiday during fair week. There is a general desire manifest among all classes to learn more of the wonders of this great new district .of manifold natural industries. There is said to be nearly 200, 000 acres of wheat, barley, oats and flax on the reservation and Camas Prairie now ready for bar vest. It is a conservative estimate to place the yield at 4.000.000 bushels. It will tax the labor forces and the machinery to the utmost to harvest this crop. The marketing will afford work for all available forces for half a year and the railroad will be blocked for six months, before it can he shipped. This grain belt is pronounced the hest in the United States. The present crop is the largest and most prolific in the history of the country. It is believed to be the biggest small grain crop ever grown on any equal area in the world. This assertion may be considered an extravagant one. It has been coroborated by hundreds of witnesses. Many visitors have gone into this district who were skeptical after heating this claim; hut they have all, so far as repot ed. returned fully convinced that the claim is well made. The fact is it would be a practical impossi bility to produce more grain on an equal area. The claim is therefore established beyond a doubt that thisjs the most productive small grain belt in the world The great need of the business interests along the Snake river at this time is a powerful little steam er suited to the navigation of swift shallow water. The unusually low water of this year is endangering many interests. The wheat will surely be blocked in another month and there is now danger that the fruit cannot be moved by .pr.sent facilities. The country is fast out growing the possibilities of trans imitation in all quarters, and es pecially is this frue of the districts which depend wholly upon the steamboats. One or two small boats of modern pattern and fitted with powerful machinery would not only find profitable business on Snake river, but a great volume of business would be developed by attention to this demand. "We must teach that the citi zenship of Idaho is as high as any in'the land and recognize no sov erignty save that of the state." This quotation from the Tribune of yesterday would indicate a re pudiation of Steunenberg's Coeur d'Alene policy in advance of the Pocatello convention. Therp is no time so safe to hedge as an early date. This radical state rights doctrine would not justify the military interference in the Coeur d'Alenes. It was feared that the Tribune could not be reconciled to a straight state rights policy ever again, but it seems to have gotten into the traces, even without the use of the party lash. The republicans have abundance of charity for political outcasts but as a party they have constitutional iemedies for political disorders. The Steunenberg orphans are too exacting. They do not want a new party home without the per mit system. The republicans promise a complete reformation for the Coeur d'Alenes, but the or phans contend for this one impot ent remedy only. Since the days of the Idaho state convention Judge Standrod has stood for all that was pure in politics, wise iu statecraft and no ble in all public and private ca pacities of life. He wlil bring more dignity to the executive chair oi the state than any other man in Idaho could bringt Notice. Lewiston, Idaho, July 6, 1900.
