BOISE, Ida., Dec, 27. Unless .tho ter ritory of thc Salmon river basin Is di vided to thc satisfaction of both tho cattlemen and sheepmen, war of a seri ous nature which may mean thc destruc tion of many head of cattlo and sheep, as well as personal Injury to owners, is liable to break out. according to rollablo Information that has drifted from cen tral Idaho Into Boise tho pas.t few days. Matters havo reached such a slago that If trouble is started both sides aro ready for retaliation. Calllo may bo stampeded and bunds of sheep may be slaughtered, cattlo driven from tho ranges, unsus pecting sheep herders may find thom oolvcd "winged" and a few other high arts of thc once famous west repeated. All this has como about owing to tho division of thc public range. For more than a year tho situation between the cattlemen and shoop owners has been growing more and more tense, until now, it Is claimed, an armed truce Is main tained. Thc cattlemen, when they rldo the range, aro armed with deadly weapons, whllo tho sheepmen are also prepared for troublo by having on their person guns ready for action. The western end of tho Salmon river basin is an ideal cattle country. In tho warm valcys lying near tho conllucncc of the Salmon and Snake rivers there is reported to bo scarcely any snow. Cat tlo run on tho range all winter and no storing of hay or winter feeding is neces sary. Into this cowpunchcrs' paradise tho sheepmen havo driven their llocks and tho cattlemen, who first had possession, resent the intrusion as much as they hope no railroad will be built through the section, for a railroad would bring set tlers and cut thc ranges of bunchgrass covcred hills Into farms.

Ida.. Dec. 27. In the early days of Its building, Pocatollo' had a reputation altogether undesirable. It was a "tough" town. There was a class of people here who entitled it to none other than these distinctions. Gambling ran rampant Harlols were but mildly restricted and. saloons prac tlcally shaped the civic regulations of early Pocatello. The old Depot hotel was tho lone hostelry of the town, and scarce another place to cat was accessible, ex cept lunch counters In suloons or res taurants attached to saloons. There were many robberies and fre quent murders and some suicides. It was common for a shift boss to re mark that ho could not look for the return of a certain percentage of his men to their respective stations in thc shops until their pay check was spent. Of course, this referred to the reckless fellow who Insisted monthly on trying his fortuno at faro, poker, roulette, tho wheel of fortune, fan-tan or keno. About each of thc twenty or more sa loons In Pocatello at this "game" period of her existence was thc professional hanger-on. who waited from ' one puy dav to another to work out his particular line of graft. Those who should know offered thc suggestion that It was very difficult in those days to find a square game at any of tho tables. Line Sharply Drawn. During this trying period of thc pio neer life of this junction point, there was a sober, firm, stable shop and train force of boys and men as good as gold, who maintained a very respectable, cleanly atmosphere about the works. Most of this class arc here today, and will recall tho distinct line drawn at that tlmo between thc high and low order of employees. Most of thin latter class have moved on Into oilier channels of life, while in some a very high order of ref ormation has taken place. All this was away back In the later 'SOs. Tills was about the period of an exodus of gamblers and all-round tough men from Lodge City. Pocatello and Cutle were inviting points for their line of illegitimate work. It would be unfair to state that nt that tlmo there were no square gamblers In Pocatollo. This is not the case. There were men who engaged In the sport as a profession (?) who were of that old school of honorable card players.. There were a few of them on earth, and it is unfair not to credit them with their 'Just dues. One of the first church houses erected in Pocatello stood for years Just a;ross the street from two saloons, and in the .summer months the crack of tho billiard balls would often mingle with the prayer of tho parson, and the boys at thc bars of these two resorts would often pause amid their libations to hear some em phatic peroration of thc minister across the way. A sacred concert for tho benefit of one of the popular churches of early Poca tello was slightly jarred by two young men who had practiced for weeks to par ticipate, losing their voices over tho "flow ing bowl." and while they were present to take their respective places in the quartettes, they were "too full for ut terance" and thc show came oft without their services. Is Different Now. A different order of morals obtains In modern Pocatollo. It Is today keeping pace In Its moral with Its commercial growth. Churches havc played their part lit this reformation. So have various societies, so nave icgisinmrus. ne effectual "hike" administered to the gam blers, which constituted .the most unde sirable element, was thc enactment and enforcement of thc anti-gambling law of the state. Pocatello today is on Hie verge of an other innovation, new to anothor clement, und as lo tho working out of this new plan for better or for worse, the two sides of the situation have their friends. This Is the enforcement of the local op tion law; for Bannock county, of which Pocatello Is the seat of government, has voted dry. , . ,, . Alreadv throe saloons In Pocatello and three in tho country precincts havo been closed under the law, and thu ruling of the attorney general of the state. Those saloons are (In Pocatello) tho Denver, the Salt Lako and tho Anheuscr Busch. and (In the country) Castallna & Son al Dempaey. an.I Ilyrnm Toolson at both Bancroft and Grace. Theso .saloon keepers had licenses issued to them after May C A majority of the remaining sa loons cannot be closed until the expira tion of their licenses. April 1. Ono of these saloons, which closed De cember 1. furnishes a ripe exampp of what officers of Idaho counties will, In some instances, be subjected to. An Italian ran .one of tho saloons. As no mm ipt rat 1 vffiT JOHN ELLIS, Sheriff of Bivunock County. observed his time coming to an end he approached tho sheriff, shrugged his shoulders and whined about his bad luck. Tho sheriff told him to make his prepara tions to obev tho law. Then he Inti mated his willingness to bribe, and was promptly Invited out of the office and assured that he would be arrested if ho ever made tho slightest suggestion of such a oAime again. On' tho day of the expiration of his li cense he paid no attention lo the law, but waited until the sheriff came to his place and compelled him to take from ids bar and his store rooms all the liquor he had on hand.
