The Salmon City Hydraulic Gold Miner mentions the fact that its Col orado exchanges have taken up the cause of the enterprising citizens of Idaho with regard to the $130,000 asked for from the State to aid in opening up Idaho's mineral resources. Millions of State and county money were appropriated in Colorado for building roads, ar.d if such foresight had not been exhibited by the push ing people of that State Colorado would to-day be behind Idaho. Her resources are no greater—not so great—as Idaho's, but her people are greater. Idaho has been far too fos siliferous. The majority of her peo ple are slow to comprehend the fset thst her prosperity must be based on the mining industry, and to develop this industry a road must be run through the interior, which is the rich est portion of the State. As the mining industry prospers, so do all other industries, so the first is the one to look after; as that grows, all oth ers grow in proportion. What is sometimes called economy is nothing but a break on the wheels of pro gress. An appropriation of $100,000 that will bring in $1,000,000 is not extravagance—it is business, and ithout business principles applied in State affairs where development is the object, there can be no growing prosperity. Idahoans are slow to re alize this fact. Salmon City Hydhaulic Miner: Our readers wi'l understand that when we speak of Salmon, we do not Bimply advocate the welfare of Salm on City. Gibbonsville, twenty-six miles down the Salmon river, is un doubtedly the largest mining camp in the county, and to-day has twen ty-seven working mines, with four mills and three large arastras, with a population in the town itself of two or three hundred, saving nothing of the men working in the various mines. Shoup and Pine creek both have some great properties in their vicinities. The Clipper Bullion com pany has just completed the erection of a new stamp mill; in fact prepa rations are being made all through thia mining section for a year of prosperity, such as Lemhi county bas never before seen. The ice King camped in Salmon City the other night, and the mercu ry in thermometers descended to thirty-two below zero. At the same time the mercury at this place had to look down a long ways from its high perch, to see the zero mark. This is the only section of Idaho that has a climate worth blowing about, and we propose to blow while we have a show, for the time may come, you know, when we'll have to go slow, and have no chance to blow, with forty or more " below," and keep in the long, straight track of truth; but will keep at it now, while we safely oan—while the winter is such that the Boise county man criea out aloud—" My Kingdom, My Kingdom, for a fan, a fan 111" And we state, in truth, thus he cries, forsooth. The above waa written before tbe recent cold wave struck us. Two and a half feet of new snow n the More Creek Summit last Fn be a* for of an of and on arid are try to the and As to to to will but do ion are day. is are be ing the an to Mr. ly ter by and in Mr, co*» or raoDvcTtox or iil. vu Senator Stewart wrote to Gov, McConnell for hie view« as to the av erage coat of the production of an ounce of silver. Mr. Stewart will use the views of Gov. MoConnell and other* in a speech on silver. Tbe Governor says: "I believe that when you place the average price of pro duction at $1.50 to $2 per ounce you underate it. A few bonanza claims have made and are making splendid showinga; but to-day on almost every hillside, from Mexico in the south to British Columbia in the north, are to be found tunnels and shafts, almost innumerable, whioh will ever remain a* mounments of the danger of this method of securing riches." If the Governor had said that it costs $10 for every ounce of silver produoed he would not have missed the mark far. Where one mine has paid, work and money have been thrown away on a hundred prospects that failed to de velop into mines. When the time, labor and expense of bnnting for these prospects is taken into account, it can readily be seen that for every ounce of stiver produoed $10 at the verv least have been expended in labor and capital. The Eastern money contractors, leeches and mouey grab bers are trying to produce the false impression that the cost of producing an ounce of silver is only thirty cents. That would not be true of our richest producers, developed and with big plants on them, and in every way prepared for tbe closest and roost economical working. The unfairness of estimating the cost with a few big producers as the basis for the figures, and those figures distorted, is too ap parent. What about the millions up on millions expended upon non-pro ductive mines? Tbe depths of infamy arid barefaced lying to which mono metalists will not stoop, have not yet been explored or discovered. They are idlers, non-producers and leeches living off of tbe industry of the coun try which they have already oppressed to on almost unbearable point by con tracting the currency and increasing the burdens of producers while in creasing their own unearned wealth, and their maws are still insatiable. They are endeavoring to carry con traction still further by stopping all purchase of silver by the government. As the currency is contracted, what these leeches hold is increased in val Their bonds are increased, all debts increased and made harder to pay; the debt of the nation is in creased, and this the producers have to pay. When will there be an end to this, and when will patience cease to be a virtue? Necessity is the mother of uprisings, and the people will have to soon rise up and declare their supremacy, not only in America, but all over the world. If they do not the condition in a very short time will be a few masters and a bill ion industrial slaves, Things are not "beginning to drift that way;" they are now almost there, and he who cannot see it is pitiably and stupidly blind. Townsite in a Lake. Up in the Occur d'Alene oountry is an ambitious little town called Harrison, from which great things are expected when that rich mineral section of Idaho is developed. It was necessary for Congress to pass a special act before the townsite could be surveyed and located. A bill making such provisions was intro duced at the last session by Con gressman Sweet. He tells an amus ing story in connection therewith. It seems that when tbe bill was drawn the instructions as to the survey in corporated therein ware taken from an incorrect map. When the sur veyors finished their work, according to the letter of the law, they found they had located the town in the middle of the Coeur d'Alene lake. Mr. Sweet attempted to - bring tbe townsite to land, but failed and final ly concluded to allow the whole mat ter to go to the bottom, if necessary, while he prepared another bill by means of which he hopes to secure a location for the place in a section a trifle less aqueous in its formation. John Reel is agent for a new style of wire clothes line, invented by a Massachusetts man. No clothes pins are required, the clothing being held on by a Yankee contrivance, and the harder the winfl blows the tighter is the grip of the aforesaid contrivance. If you want anything in this line, take a glance at the kind Mr, Reel is agent for. is or ly " at of est in eaatBVTioi or ■Em Editor Worij»: —Much paper and ink has been wasted on the subject of Archbishop Satolli's mission in tbe United States, and 1 believe that fo w words for the information of your readers will not be amiss. The con troveray concerning tbe position of the ohnroh in regerd to education waa settled eight yeers ago; not by Arab hiabop Satolli, not by tbe Arcbbubops of the United States, but by the 3d Plenary Council of Baltimore. Bat the school question, whioh sometime *d° agitated the churoh in America, is not settled, and remains to-day whore it waa before the New York ('inference, for the (impie reason that the proposed settlement was not accepted by the Archbishop*. Some Catholic editors maintain or insinuate that the Pope has spoken in this matter as the mouthpiece of tbe chureh, but they are mistaken, and they show that they ignore entirely some principles of Catholic theology. When the church speaks through its head, iD matters of faith and morals, its utterances mast be adhered to by all; but infallibility does not mean that the Pope cannot make mistakes, or that be oannot err in mattere of science or history. No council, how ever, be it even of Archbishops, Pa triarchs and Cardinals would dare to rejeot hit declaration, or even most respectfully to offer a few amend ments. If the Pope chooses at some future time to take this school ques into his own hands and settle it final ly by his supreme authority, as he has settled it provisionally for two local cases in Minnesota, Faribault and Stillwater, all the Bishops of the United States will obey, whatever bis decision may be. As to the maintenance of the pa rochial school system being at stake, that is the merest fudge. Archbish op Ireland has stated that he does not wish to depart from the rules of the 3d Plenary Council. And tbe address of Mgr. Satolli also reaffirms substantially the Council's policy. The bringing of the case before the Roman authorities as a species of " heresy trial," was a piece of unmit igated nonsense, as the " Citizen " of Milwaukee, in its issue of January 14th, rightly observes. The conflict between the liberal and conservative elements in the church is simply a natural movement within a live institution—the circula tion of the blood—so to speak. It has been so from the beginning. Un der the circumstances it is wise for every Catholic to set an example of calmness and fairness to their bish ops. The great mass of the laity and the great mass of the Priesthood are not disposed to be personal hench men in this controversy.' We are partisans of the church, not of this or that gentleman. This is the strong, the wholesome and the right posi tion. Rev. W. J. A. Hendrickx. Icaho City, Jan. 29, 1893. Scott Smith, of Boise, called on tbe Wori.d yesterday. He is now visiting his son-in-law and daughter, at Davis' wood camp, on Grimes creek. Mr. Smith says the display of Idaho fruits for the World's Fair, now on exhibition in Boise, is the fin est he ever saw, and cannot fail to attract wide attention and be an ob ject of admiration at the great Fair, and to result in very favorable im pressions of our richly endowed young State as a fruit grower, and this will turn a tide of immigration in the direction of tbe Gem of the Mountains. After all the boasting of the peo ple of this county about the great mildness of our climate, no snow, Italian skies and May breezes in January, the cold wave struck us last Sunday night, chilling our ardor and freezing the populace to the marrow. The sudden contrast made the cold appear about sixty below, but it was nevertheless mild compared with the weather of other northern sections, going only four below. Tuk House has passed Stephens' bill providing for the payment of county* taxes in county warrants, McCarthy's bill providing for taxa tion of mortgages and other securi ties, and Ballantine's bill fixing the maximum yearly salary of County Commissioners at $300. On Mc Carthy's bill Workman votad aye and Merrill oo. Boise Democrat: Whenever bill providing for tbe taxation of mortgages, tbe limiting of tolls (or water from irrigatiog ditches or oth er* of a elaes where eome revenue may be obtained from persons re aiding ont of tbe Stete who own prop erty therein ia proposed, tbe alarm sounded is thst eapilel will be driven from tbe State. Capital iw tbe East goes begging st fonr and five per eent on good securities and so long as that ia good here money will eome to eny amount wanted for tbe usee of the people. Tbe argument that tax ation of mortgages ia wrong because it will increase the interest paid by investor* is not a good one. Even if it were true it would be legislation in favor of a class. But it ia not true and baa never made any difference in the rate of interest. Tbe money loaner will invest where it ie aefe to do so and be can get the bigbeet rate of interest and the borrower will pay what be can afford to pay and pnrsoe his business and no more. Tbe East ern money loaner wonld have to pay taxes on bis money et hume end might aa well do so here. Indeed he oan better afford to pay where be can get a higher rate of interest. AN effort ia being made by certain Legislators to pass a bill providing for tbe appointment of a World's Fair Commission consisting of three member*. There i* no occasion for this, and it would be saying to Com missioner Wells: "Idaho does not appreciate your nntinng and faithful labor* which bave accomplished ao much in so short a time with limited means and in the face of untold drawbacks." To change now would be folly, betides. It would interfere with plans already arranged. The collection and arrangement of Idaho's exhibit cannot be placed in better hands than those of the present Com missioner. This effort to place tbe matter in tbe hands of a commission will surely fail, as it should, and over its failure all Idaho will rejoice. Nampa Leader: A bill baa been introduced in the House providing that all tbe printing for the State and counties be purchased in tbe State. This act will be the means of keep ing thousands of dollars in the State that now goes to outside parties. There ia not a newspaper in the State but that will be benefilted by this act. Tbe prospects for its speedy passage is good, as there ia no oppo sition to the measure except from Bernard & Co., and some other firms who hsve made thousands of dollsrs from their contracts in the Stste. An incline is down twenty-five feet on the Schermethorn coal mine, on the south side of Payette river and two miles east of Marsh & I re ton 's ranch. The coal vein is six feet wide. A town is expected to grow up there, as the Nampa and Silver City Railroad company expects to be running cars in there inside of a year. The Statesman says Mr. Schermer born is taking out coal and has sent word to all the neighboring ranch men that they can have all the coal they want for $1 a load. An incendiary fire occurred at Gem on the 2fith, destroying nearly all tbe business portion of the town south of tbe Northern Pacific track. The fire originated in the Miners' Union ball. Loss, $32,000. After the fire Sol Samuels and Tbos. Reed got into an altercation. Reed went off and returned with a shot gun and fired, the ebarge taking effect in Sam uel's right arm, making amputation necessary olose to the shoulder. The Lemhi placer company, or ganized by Colorado men, has 100, 000 acres of placer ground, with grav el running from ten to forty feet in ieplh, ami prospecting from 10 to 20 cents per cubic yard. The company proposes to dig a ditch, sixty-eight miles long, that will aarry 10,000 in ohes of water. The ground is to be worked on sn extensive scale. It is located near Salmon City. The DeLamar Nugget says Thos. R. Faull, tbe new Justice of the Peace of that place, held his first term of Court the other day, and seemed as muoh at ease aa if he bad been on the bench all his life. May be the Nuggett doesn't know that Tom "isan old hand at the business," having been the Chief Juatice of Plarerville for a long period in years agon*. John Ridenbnugb met with aa aa oidaot yesterday at Hattie Carttoak place in the Daria addition. As nearly aa can be learned, the line story ie aa follows: Tbe wife of George Cotta, *a took who works at Kinneyb saloon, usd to work for tbe Carlton woman sion ally and Coffin objected. Borne time ago abe left her husband want to Battis Carl too 's to do I work, taking bar little ekild and bar personal property, aa wall aa tome at her husband'*, with bar. About 1 o'clock yesterday after nooo Coffin west down to the bouse and demanded bis property. His wifa refused to give it up and ha took hold of bar. Tbsre was noise mad* end tbe Carlton w appeared on tbe scene. Rid* n be ugh was in the bouse. He, too, appeared on tbe toe ne and enter ed into aa alteres'ioa with Cotta. The two men finally began fighting and fall off tbe porch or down the stop* to tbe ground, some three or four feet. Tbe lall resulted in Bi denbsngb't breaking bis left leg at tbe tbigb. Dr. Perrault waa called and set tbe fractured bone, and later in tbe after noon tbe sufferer was removed to tbe borne of his brother. After the accident Coffin took hia ohild to Joe Kinney's saloon and left it there, where City Marshal Nichol son got it and took it back to ita mother. Tbe first report of tbe accident was that Ridenbangb was shot. A States man reporter immediately went to the house and was told be bad fallen down tbe steps and broken his lag. Tbe Carlton woman told Marshal Nicholson a story similar to the above with some hatchet and butcher knife variations. Xiaels stls* «fTewkcn.

Matt's health is very poor, and he is here under treatment of Dr. Zipf. Judge Martin was elected United States Senate« by tbe Popnlists and Democrats of tbe Kansas Legislature on tbe 25th. He ia a free-coinage man and a Democrat, but with quite a mixture, in bis political composition, of Populist principles.
