Idaho ought to have another Judge,
for two reasons. First—-when a case is
appealed to the Supreme Court, the
judge before whom the case was tried
in the District Court takes part in its
disposition in the higher court, there
being three judges, and of course the
one before whom the case has been
tried, if there is a disagreement be
tween the other two, decides the case.
This is not as it should be. With a
fourth judge, the one before whom
case was tried in the District
Court would not figure in the disposi
tion of that case before the Su
preme Court. Second—the work in
the Second Judicial District is too
much for one judge, and if divided
into two districts, say Alturas and
Boise for one, and Ada, Owyhee and
Cassia for > the ether, the presiding
judge in each would have all he could
attend to and do r justice to his district
and himself. Just-tliiuk of one hun
dred and twenty cases disposed of at
the last term of court for Alturas, and
then the calendar not disposed of.
Judge Broderick gets no çest. .A
term of court is no moreAhan ^closed
in one county when "time is called"
in the next, and it is not infrequently
the case that cases have to be laid
over until next term for this reason.
A judge's labors are arduous, and he
requires some rest. Unless he has an
Iron constitution he cannot long stand
•the strain, and no constitution, no
■matter how strong, cam jog alcpg for
any length of'time under J the 'legal
load that can't be shaken off at will,
without being worsted. We hope
that. Delegate Hailev will use his best
endeavors to have a fourthjudge pro
vided for Idaho, and for a division
of the Second Judicial District. If
he does, and succeeds, he will receive
thanks, without doubt, of everybody
in said district, for the division, and
of the citizens ef Idalio ..generally,
for a fourth judge.

has been a large contractor, and was
the contractor in building the founda

and was a man of much means and
highly respected. He leaves a wife
and-three small children in Portland.
He was forty-five years of age. The
above was gleamed from the Lewis

Lewiston Teller: —We have not
interviewed Hibbs, but are informed
that he claims that he cannot be con
victed of forgery..... J. K. Vincent
brought to our office several stocks of
corn from the ranch of Mr. W hit
comb, of Tammany, which measured
twelve feet in height from the ground
to the end of the tassel, a:.d in
ches in circumference between the
joints. * * * - We learn that all those un
der arrest for the poisoning of the
men on the Asotin have -been dis
charged, with the exception of one
Moore, a German, who was bound
over to await the action of the grand
j ur y.....Dr. J. B. Morris showed us
an apple < 5 f the Gloria Mundi species,
which measures sixteen inches in cir
cumference and weighs thirty ounces.
It was gathered from the orchard of
D. W. C. Dunwell, on the Clearwater,
about four miles above Lewiston.
There are more of the same sort only
larger, on the same, tree.
Charles A. Roach, *by writing to
J. W. Reel, of this place, will learn
something of value to him. Territo
rial papers please copy.
The Houston Press says thtft the
other afternoon a young couple rode
up in front of Justice Hunt's office
and called the Justice out %o marry
them. They were mounted on Indi
an cayuses and the groom wore a belt
containing a six-shooter and bowie
knife. Judge Hunt ordered the cou
ple, D. S. Dixson and Susie Wfllson,
to join hands and the knot was tied.
After tossing the judge a $20 they
rode awav.
The Avalanche says "another clean
up has been made at Scales & Wag
ner's arastra from the Oro Fino, and
as a result, Mr. Regan gets $32,049.79
out of his ore, $30,869.79 of which
comes from thirty-eight, tons of ore,
or about $812 per ton. Of this
amount one brick contained $12,705
in gold, while three others contain
about $5,000 each in gold, making the
sum total in gold $27,010.87 and over
$5,000 of silver. We would ask
where is another mine will average so
»veil per ton? We will add that Mr.
Regan is taking out more ore of the
6 ame nature as that milled, and has
plenty «lore in the mine,'*
James Fhe.,.\kk, Deputy Sheriff, who
was over in Deadwood Basin a short
time ago, informs us that Sam Boone
and four or five other men from Bay
horse, ha\$i made eight or ten loca
tions this fall oirthe north side of the
Deadwood Fork, about two miles and
a half from Wise & Go's placer cLaim,
and are still making discoveries.
Sam Boone, Mr. Freauer tells us was
a resident of Placerville in early days.
The higher grade ore assays 300
ounces silver-per ton and $16 in gold.
One location has eighteen inches of
the high grade, and from two to three
feet of the low grade ore. The low
grade is good ore, but will not pay to
ship. The men will remain there all
winter and take out ore which they
will «hip next spring to the Custer
mill. The cost of packing the ore
there and milling, will be about $60
per ton. The miners out there held a
meeting not long ago.-and organized
a district, and by request of the min
ers, Auditor and Recorder Tim Car
roll appointed Geo. Wise Deputy Re
corder for. the district, Wise & Co.,
placer miners, haven't water enough
to, make a cleaiirup. They may be
able to cleanup sometime this fall
and-may.Jiet. It all depends on tiie
rainfall. A new trail will be made
into'Deadwood next season. Jt will
go up Lightning creek, so as to avoid
crossing Lightning Ridge.
The Gold Hill company has put
their hoisting works at the shaft go
ing down on the Pioneer ledge, and
have the pump ready to putin. There
is considerable water in the shaft, at
present, to contend with. The shaft,
double compartment, will be put
down about 150 feet, and will reach
that depth in about two months.
Dave Coughanour and Chas. Macka
voy, who have charge of the mine
and mill, deserve credit for the good
judgment, and energy they have shown
in opening up.-this mine, and for im
provements made in and about the
mill. The mill is supplied with self
feeders, rock-breakers, and a good
deal of old machinery was taken out
and new pnt in its place. The old
foundation of the mill was not in first
class condition, so they put in a new
one. .The ore from the mine will be
dumped onto a screen, and the ore fine
enough to go through the screen drops
into the battery, -and the coarser ore
_that too coaree to go through the
screen, goes »iftto the rock-breaker
and then ir.tathe self-feeders. After
being dumped into the mill it goes
on through without being handled.
The machinery attends to it and sends
it on .its way with regularity and just
as fast as tho stamps, can get away
with ft.
The San Francisco Bulletin says:
Dividend mines are very scarce in
Nevada and Arizona at present. We
have heard of only one dividend from
either this mouth. Utah has only one
dividend mine at present, and Idaho
none. California lias nothing to boast
of in this line. We know of but two
mines in this state that pay regularly
every month. Even distant Dakota
does as well as that. It is not impos
sible that Alaska will soon report a
dividend mine. More gold is coming
from Alaska this year than for any
previous year.
The World cannot speak authori
tatively for Nevada, Utah and Cali
fornia, but the Bulletin, to our certain
knowledge, does Idaho an injustice.
Mines near this burg are paying divi
dends and have been for years. The
Gold Hill, at Quartzburg, lias been a
dividend paying mine for seventeen
years, and as soon as their new shaft
is down and the mill resumes work,
that company will again roll out divi
dends. The Mammoth, on Summit
Flat, is paying right along, and has
been for many years. The Banner
mine, which recently turned out $92,
000 in thirty-nine days, and will con
tinue to turn out at that rate, will de
clare a pretty handsome dividend this
fall. The Forest King mine in sight
of this place, has been a dividenfd
paying mine, for sometime, and the
more it is developed the bigger are
the divs. We expect to he able to
add to this list next year. How about
Alturas, Lemhi and Custer counties?
There are quite a number of mines in
those counties paying dividends, and
>we leave it for the papers published
in said counties to enumerate. The
Bulletin has not been correctly inform
ed about the Idaho mines.
Statesman: Misses Mary and
Hettie Cahalan, the two young lady
graduates oï the class of '85 of our
high school, have been engaged to
teach in the district schools of Horse
shoe Bend and Centerville respect
ively. The trustees of these districts
are to be congratulated on their se
lections. .. .The telegraphic dispatch
bring the information that Mr.
Spruillc Braden, the Superintendent
of the U. S. assay office at Boise City,
has been appointed Superintendent
of the assay office located at Hele
na, Montana, the largest and most
important of the government assay
offices with the exception of the one
at New York.....Tiios. Aiken, of
Boise valley, came into our sanctum
Saturday and brought a half bushel
of potatoes which take the cake in
the way of mammoth "spuds." When
we emptied the box in which he
brought them, we found that there
were only twelve of them, but they
were huge ones. Some of them
. , i e i j
weighed over four pounds, and the
° 1
average weight of the twelve was but
little less than throe pounds. They
tipped the scales at thirty-two pounds,
and if any one can beat this we would
like to hear of it. It is the exhibi
tion of such specimens as these that
is bringing the reputation of Idaho to
the front as a world beater in the
vegetable and fruit line.

The cotton and corn crops this year
will be the largest ever produced in

over seven million bales and the lat
nineteen hundred million

The wheat crop falls very
much below that of last year, but the
supply in connection with a large sur
plus carried over from the previous
crop will prove more than sufficient
for all aequirments both for home
consumption and foreign demand.
Thesejvre the three great money crops
of the farming interests and
condition could scarcely be
hopeful or encouraging.

Fraser's Murderer*
The N ez Perce News says ninja
deputy sheriffs were sworn in at Piere»
City and were taking the five China
men charged with the murder df
Fraser, to Murray, when they wer»
surrounded by fifty or sixty masked
men, after proceeding two miles. The
posse was ordered to throw up their
hands, which they did, "being over
powered. They were disarmed and
given two minutes to get out of the
way. They returned to Pierce City.
The prisoners weTe dragged from the
wagon and hanged. 'When the sher
iff's posse returned'later : in the day
with reinforcements, they found the
five Chinamen hanging by the necks
on a pole lashed to two pine trees.
The perte had been broken and lash
ed to a center post, so that the vic
tims must have been hoisted twice.
After the examination was concluded
on Friday, at Pierce City, the vigi
lantes left, and it was decided to take
the prisoners to the jail at Murray for
safe keeping, but the vigilantes bad
previously decided to take charge of
them at a certain point on the roa 4 .
The five prisoners first arrested
were those hanged, and they were a
store-keeper and his partner, a barber,
a gambler, and a parasite of one of
the Chinese prostitutes of the camp.
I he evidence revealed enough t»
show that the deed was instigated
by the China merchant and his part
ner, and the deed was actually com
mitted by the other three. On Fri
day morning, when the vigilante»
were extorting confessions, the mer
chant was gently hoisted and lower
ed, and he carne to the earth sense
less. He was laid under the tree, a
stick of wood put under his head, anti
a blanket thrown over him. His part
ner was then brought down, shown
the dead (?) body of the merchant,
and threatened with the same fate
unless he told all he knew about th*
matter. The rope was placed around
his neck and the prisoner then com
menced to lay on his partner all t-lie
blame, saying that he planned the
whole business. At this juncture the
dead (?) storekeeper jumped up, and
for some time the two kept up an ex
cited jabbering to which the inter
preter listened attentively anil ascer-»
tained that each was accusing the oth
er of having given him away. The
pimp was quite a young fellow and
claimed to be a new coiner in the
camp, but this was disproved by white
men - who knew him. He had a heavy
scratch on his face which he could
not satisfactorily account for, and the
supposition is that it was inflicted by
Fraser chi ring -the deadly niggle.
The barber was -a heavy-set, 'brutal
looking feilow, and he and the gam
bler were undoubtedly the actual per
petrators 6 f the murder. Whether
(thev met their death bravely or ab
. , , , , - r
jectlv nobody knows, as there were
J1Q witliesseB present save the partio
; ipants.
