A. KJOS PURIFICATION OF WATER $ W ATER is no more necessary to life than pure water is to health. Be cause persons have drank ques tionable water and still live is no evi dence that they would not have lived lielter on pure- water. Because one sur vives a dose of poison, it is is no reason that poison is good or harmless. IT IS REASONABLE, if a badly polluted water causes severe and fatal disease, that slightly impure water may slowly undermine the health by being the cause ot a host of ailments ami inabilities of body for which the suf ferer finds no apparent cause. When a eitv is supplied with only doubtfully pure water, no family should he without a private filter. Dent & Butler, Druggists We are Sole Agents for the PASTEUR GERM PROOF FILTER.

POPULISTS OUT FOR PIE After a day the Fusionists are Attain Working and Pouting— Probably Agreed on Spoils. I'oCATKU.o, July 21, n: 3 oa, tn.—JSpe cial]— Practically all morning has Iteen spent in suspense over the action of the jtopnlist convention last night. At 1:30 this morning the democratic conference committee reported that the populists had promulgated an ultimatum that nom inees ot other parties after the question of apportionment and assignment had been aaranged should he passed upon by the conventions. This was evidently de vised as means of securing control of the board of pardons and the state hoards 1 ! j I j i I I I , , i ' i ; 1 j j ! j generally. Mr. Reid took the floor and ; pointed out the plot to the convention, j The proposition was rejected hv the dem- j ocrats by a unanimous vote. i This was considered a serious obst.uc- ! tion to fusion. The convention ad journed without any definite course out- ! lined for future action. This morning, ; howeyer, after a short session the popu- | lists instructed their conference commit tee to again meet the other members and attempt again to accomplish an ''honor able fusion." There was no mention made to the ul- j limatuni. There was no reconsideration but the instructions to proceed is con strued to mean a point yielded to the democrats. The contention on the part of the pop-: ulists for the right to ratify the nomina tion for governor and other offices is con- j strued to mean that they want to control I the board of pardons. This agreement would perhaps bar Rice and others whom Steunenberg would desire. It would in effect be a declaration in favor j of Goode, Hailey or Storer. PoCATKLLO, Idaho, July 21, 12:30 p.m. —(Special to the Tki.i.kr)—T he demo cratic convention has just instructed its conferees to stand by the following fu sion proposition: Democrats—Supreme judge, governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, j treasurer, school superintendent, and three electors. Populists—Congressman, auditor and mine inspector. Silver Republicans— U. S. senator and secretary of state. These have been accepted by the silver republicans and it has lieen sent as an ultimatum to the populists. They are demanding besides the offices offered them the secretary of state and one elector, but they will probably accept the democratic ultimatum. 2:20 p. m.—The populists have accept ed the offices offered in the democratic ultimatum! but are now discussing a proposition to make it conditional upon the adoption by the democrats of a plank in their platform denouncing the permit system and the maintainance of martial law in the Coeur d'Alenes. 2:30 p. tn.—The condition has been adopted by the populist convention. 2:45 p. m.—The democratic convention has rejected the resolution submitted by the populists. TALKED WITH BINUER HERMANN hoa J. F. Ailshie •! Orangeville Talks With Commissioner Regarding Timber Catting Oa the Forest Reserve. Hon. J. F. Ailshie of Grangeville stop ;x*d in Washing on, D. C., while east at tending the republican national conven tion and called on Binger Hermann, com missioner of forest reserves, and talked with him in reference to the Bitter Root reserve tributary to this country. In conversation with Mr. Hermann, Mr. Ailshie states he had an interview with him in relation to the building of roads, cutting of timber and other work on the forest reserve. "The commis sioner assured me that while he was obliged to enforce the law. that he shall make it his special purpose to see that the forest reserve laws receive the most favorable construction i>ossible in the in terest of the miners and settlers on the reserves and that every favor which can possibly Ire granted will be accorder I them. Senator Slump has done our peo pie good service in this matter." This is a matter which has come up over the fact that persons anil copora lions have not complied with the laws in cutting timber from the roads. The government has some fifteen su , pervisors and rangers there whose duties are to guard the forests and under the , law no one ha* a right to cut timber, i build roads, or disturb it in any shape, j form or manner without a special permit ! from the government, recommended by | ' the supervisors, and owing to the time | i which is necessarily used in securing ! ; these permits persons have built roads. 1 etc., without them. The consequence is j that the supervisors have l>een after j them. My conversation with Mr. Her ! man was ori the lines as alxive stated j However, it is expected no serious con plications will arise at this time as the department is very much interested in the opening of the mines and will doev , .. . . ...... I erythiug that can consistently he done for the further advancement of the min ing interests, but the laws must Ire en forced, and those desiring to secure tim lier and build roads must do it through the regular channel." Street Work Moving Fast, Contractor W. H. Skinner is pushing ; the preliminary work preparatory to the j macadamising of main street and has a j force of men at work today with plows i tearing up the street in order to start the ! work on the gutters and curbing which will be the first work attended to. The ! crosswalks have all lieen removed and ; May« Beach has ordered that all tele | phone and telegraph poles which might ! retard the progress of the work of the ; contractor Ire removed, ] The gravel and dirt to be used in filling in certain portions of the street is being j taken from the 5th. street grade. Engi McCulloch's is neer McCulloch's survey is now nearly completed and it is stated that the level of the street in some places will have to lie raised fully two feet. This is causing some anxiety among certain property holders as they will be required to raise their sidewalk to a proper level which will necessitate the raising of several brick and frame buildings on the street, It is hoped that a proper adjustment of this will be amicably agreed on between the city and those mostly interested, A Serious Accident. . Frank Miller, a young man engaged in rouuding up stock near Lapwai, met with a serious accident yesterday while attempting to lassoo a wild horse. His hand became entangled in the rope and as j j,i 8 little finger was torn entirely off his le ft hand and the third finger broken Dr. Brown was called and dressed the in jured hand and reports the patient doing as well as circumstances will permit. Troops May Land in Japan. Wash ini.ton, July 20.—As was antic ipated, the Japanese government has given its cheerful assent to the applica tion of the Umted States government for permission to land armed troops and mil itary supplies at Nagaski in transit to Taku, China. This privilege was desired in order that the Pacific transports plying between San Francisco and Manila should not deviate from the regular route, but that the troops and stock carried by them and in tended for service in China might be transferred at Nagaski to other vessels of the transport service and taken direct to Taku. The Japanese authorities not only have agreed to the proposed use of Na gaski, but they also have assured the United States government that they will facilitate the movement of American troops and supplies as much as possible. The quartermaster's department of the army has provided three large transports of the Philippine service for use on the line between Nagaski and Taku and it is expected in this way to expedite the movement of troops to China. —Wildenthaler delivers fresh bread twice a day all over the city.

Thrasher submitted to the executive council of the Federation they are confident will result in the speedy settle ment of the great building anil trades strike in Chicago. The council, after listening to the projxisitions of the gen tlemen and reading the documents they had brought to show that they repre sented many of the wealthiest men in Chicago, appointed Messrs Kidd and Lemon to investigate the proposition thoroughly. Messrs Chadwick and Thrasher repre sent a new company, known as the La hor and Guarantee association. Neither be by of for ers they nor the members of the eouncill will divulge the plan proposed. "All I can say in regard to the matter," said Mr. Chadwick, "is that the aasocia tion proposes to act as an intermediary between employers and employes and our method of proceedure will lx* submitted to the council in a full report by the sub committee appointed for that purpose. We intend to proceed on lines different from anything suggested, proposing to in troduce an entirely new method of deal ing with labor troubles. We want the indorsement of the council. W'itliout it the plan and purpose of the association would fail. Our first work of course, would be in Chicago, but the association' would, if successful extend its scope so as to make it national in character." .. . - .. .. , The council took up the matter of the American sales agents, whose charter was revoked at the last convention of the federation, and by resolution President j Gompers was instructed to notify all lo cal labor.unions that they will not be allowed representation iù the federation as long as they remain in any way con nected with the American agents, which the council declares is not bona fide labor organi7.ation. The tubooed associ ation embraces local sales agents of small manufactured articles, insurance agents and agents ami allied lines of that character.
