q ç ^ L INTELLIGENCE' fyou want your teeth fixed, call the coming week at Dr. Clowe's jn at the French Hotel, and make «•a«»-cments for he is about to leave. » B Irly IpÉARTn —Of original matter in this issue owing to otfter pressing engagements of editor. [returned. —T. Swartz and lady have (turned from their bridal tour to Califor Grangbvii.le. —Christmas will he ob *d at Grangevile, by a Christmas tree Id a dance. - ♦♦-- IlCE. —Parties represent that the roads |e very icy out through the Thorn Creek alley, while in the Paradise Valley there [no ice. In Town. —We notice in town this week lessrs Cearley. Wilmott, Riggins and some [tiers from Camas Prairie. Also Charles right from Warrens. Too Many. —The number of scholars in be primary department of public school is early GO, and in the advanced department bout 40. Some complain that, the prima school is too large for one teacher. How- to get Your Money. —Tn another olumn are instructions how to proceed to Ibtain pay for lost anim : 13 employed in the udian war, to which all persons having llnlms for such compensation would do tell to take due heed. Petitions Returning. —Several of the loti t i on s seat out for signatures on the |uestion of annexation and river improve lents, have been returned to us all well and illy wh i end luay he forwarded to Washington. signed save the one from John Day ch we have alluded in another item. all in as soon ns possible, that they Peculation. —The Mountain Scntmal of the 15th sets forth in ,n lenghfly article a hatch of frauds upon the government, com mitted at Boise City in the employment of mimais and men for the campaign against the Nez Perces, which, (or the honor of the [officers and men engaged in them, we hope iflay prove untrue. It will prove cause |for delay in the payment of claims of our JN'orth Idaho people which are just and [right, to find tlmt our Boise City men have [thus sought to perpetrate a swindle upon the government. A Singular Objection. —A short time since printed heads of petitions were sent out to tiie different precincts in the three northern counties of Idaho, asking Con gress to make appropriations for the im provement of Columbia, Snake and Clear water rivers. One of those was sent to John Day Creek. This week it was re-, turned wfth the following endorsement upon it. "John Day Creek, I. 7., Dec 11th 1877. Mr. A. Lei, and.— Sir : You have urn uiitted the wagou road on Salmon river, and that ig what we want, therefore we will not sign this. Respectfully Yours PiiiLLii* Cleary." We do not find fault with the desire of the settlers about John Day for a wagon T«vad on Salmon river to give them an out let., but that that desire should operate as an objection to the needed improvements -of the navigation of the rivers to continue 'that outlet to the sea, is a mystery to us. To bare included their wagon road in this petition would have necessitated a divi sion of the question in the committee in Congress, the river portion of it go ln g to the committee ou river uud harbor improvements, and the wagou portion to some other committee. retd This division in itself would bo likely to «lefeat action upon either measure. We teapuot entertain the opinion that our John • ai friend* are disposed «0 make it an im-! per.itive condition that no river improve- • .Impôts shall be made unless the wagon road atso shall he built. Send along your peti tion for a wagon road and we will sign it t b ' U , f on ' 1 TO'* ft »P with other measures : inat have no tangible connection with it. j »e think our friend Phil, is a little raysti- j bed in his reasoning. ' Christmas Tree. —We are requested to state, by Mrs. Ridgety, that the doors of * jer school room will be opened on Monday eve. Dec. 24th, at 7| o'clock, and that a distribution of the presents from the Christmas tree will commence at } before 8 o'clock. All are invited. Plummer's Recitations.—O n Wednes day eve Mr. Plummer appeared before a Lewiston audience of moderate size in bis i . i ' very successful and elicited much and well merited applause. "Sheridan's and Schni , , ,, ,, , , er s were well rendered. The per son a t i o n of the "Down Easter" and the "Hard Shell Baptist" stirred up his audi 1 j ence to a lively pitch of merriment. After I our going to press last evening he gave a j benefit to our public school. ".Mr. Plum-! ; mer is fi st among the deliniators of char ! (lc ' er who have ever visited Lewiston. Cruel ami Crushing:. New York, Dec. 11. —The Herald's London special says : This day will i witness scenes of the wildest excitement T j » >1 I • in London, Ail tho morning papers print a dispatch from Bucharest de darin" that Osman Pasha surrendered Plevna on Sunday, and that all the Turkish fortifications are in possession of Russians and Roumanians. All pent up anxiety and hope of the friends of Turkey irk England will come to an end to-day. A cruel and crushing blow Ins been dealt to blatant panegyrists who have for a month past been telling of the prowess of the Turkish troops, Osman will cease to be a hero, although reports from official Russian sources speak of his courage in the hour of de feat. Still he has failed, and thcTurk ophiles of England will never forgive him. Strange to say this blow will cause a shock, although it, had been | expected for days. Only last evening I'- 1 the s'i joct o! aoncst universal } discussion. The proposition asput tisii illy took the fallowing form: After levna, what? Today the people England must make up tneir mini!' It will be interesting to know what the verdict will he. Soldiers hoc to Ria me.
