Improvements of our Rivers.
At the instance of our Delegate in
Congress we this week printed and sent
out for circulationjamong, and for signa
tures of the people, a petition asking
Congress first to appropriate $300,000
for the canal and locks at tho Cascades.
Second, for an appropriation of $30,000
for tho improvement of the navigation
of Snake river below Lewiston, and
third for an appropriation of $15,000,
for removing obstructions to navigation
of the Clearwater river from the mouth
to tho mouth ot the middle fork of
said stream. This petition is for the
purpose of supporting the three bills
now bofore Congress for these respect
ive measures. They are measures
which commend themselves to the
earnest good julgemcnt-of every man
who knows the situation and condition
of these rivers and the country tributary
thereto, and more especially to the in
terest of every man who lias taken up a
permanent home in the vicinity of these
rivers, and wo shall therelore expect
that this petition will be extensively
signed without any delay and returned
to The Teller office to be forwarded
to our delegate in Congress for use ill
aiding the passage of these wholesome
measures. 'With our people there is no
need of any specious argument or plead
ing in favor of signing this petition. The
mere mention of the proposition is all
sufficient, to induce signatures from all
thinking men. We trust similar peti
! tiens will bccirculatcd in Washington
Territory or that portion of Eastern
j Washington where tho people are vital
j ly interested in the success of these
! measures. "What is to be done, should
; be done quickly so as to have the pe
; tilions reach Washington in time for
; use in securing proper action upon the
bills now before Congress. The inter
vening distance between us and tho
halls of Congress is such that we have
to be early with our representations
from the people, else tho opportune
time for our request to be h ard will
have passed. Be sure and sign and send
j along these petitions without delay, and
! they will be forthwith sent, to Washing
ton. Wo also print the said petition in
j The Teller of this week, so that
1 should there be a locality where our
i printed copies do not reach, the petition
! can be cut out of tin paper and pasted
I upon foolscap paper and used lor a
heading to signatures in such localities.
l-o ! the ludlan.
The Lewiston Teller, who conics
I about as near telling it right about the
j poor "I.o," as any journal this side of
San Francisco, says : "Enough of the
1 hostile element is loft at Lapwai, to
form a uucleus of no small strength,
whenever hostilities present itself."
The truth is, there is enough of that
element left on every reservation, to
start a first-class massacre, if they had
but the least hope of success. They
may talk about the love for the great
Father at Washington, and their good
hearts, but their seemiug friendship
needs more watching than a mule's
hind legs. Wo will never trust them
unless they build homes, go to work
arid become white.— IF. W. Watch
man.
Petition.
To the Honorable the Senate and
House of Representatives in Congress
assembled :
Your petitioners, citizens and resi
dents of tho Northern counties of Ida
ho would respectfully represent, That
we occupy a tract of county tributary,
for mauy miles on each side, to the
Clearwater and Snake rivers. That
our own, and that portion of Washing
ton Territory bordering for many miles
on each side of the Snake below Lewis
tou, constitute millions of acreä of the
best wheat lands known on the conti
nent, ns has been fully demonstated by
the products raised.
That the said Clearwater and Snake
rivers constitute a natural highway to
the larger river, the Columbia, and
with said river tq the sea board, for
all the products of this section of coun
try.
That with moderate expenditure in
the removal of some impediments to
steamboat navigation now in the said
Snake river below Lewiston, said river
may become navigable for steamers
carrying 3UÜ tons, at all seasons of the
year, save when obstructed by ice.
That the said Clearwater river, with '
a moderate outlay of expense, may be
made navigable for steamboats of 150
tons capacity for fu'l six month of each
year, and for floating barges of 250 or
300 tons capacity, laden with our pro
ducts down the stream duriug tho re
maining six months of the year save
when impeded by ice.
That immigration is fast corning to
this section of country and absorbing
its lands.
That our increasing commerce de
mands that these improvements of these
rivers be early made.
Therefore we your petitioners hum
ble pray. 1' irst. that at your present
session, an appropriation of $300,000
may bo made for the construction of
canal and locks at the Cascades of tho
Columbia river.
Second, that $30,000 may bo appro
priated for removing obstruction to nav
igation in Snake river below Lewiston,
a distance of 150 miles.
'J bird, that $15,000 maybe appro
priated for removing obstructions to
navigation of the Clearwater river from
its confluence with the Snake river to
the mouth of the middle fork of said
Clearwater, a distance 35 miles, and
your petitioners will ever pray.
A Whopper.—T he three northerr
counties of Idaho, are not more isolated
from the rest of" the territory than some
other parts are.— B. Statesman.
None but the three northern countiei
of Idaho, are compelled to travel 500
miles to attend the Supreme Court and
all thul on horse back or by stage, and
300 miles of this distanco through an
other territory and state. The same.to do
any business at the capital. Tho dis
tance was too great for the governor to
send us arms when beset by the hos
tile ludiuus.
Annexation.— Hou. S. S. Fenn
has presented in Congress a petition
lroui the citizens of Northern Idaho
asking to be annexed to Washington
lerritöry. Iq fixing tho boundaries
of the proposed state of Washington the
counties in Northern Idaho can bo em
braced, and then there will be little
difficulty about consummating the
union.— Walla Walla Statesman.
