Official Paper of Nez Perce County
National Republican Ticket:
WILLIAM McKINLEY, of Ohio
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
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
