COUNTY AND STATU.
Chas. E. Herrick and Mrs. Ame
lia Hammond were married several
days ago in Boise.
Frank Church, of this place, was
appointed assayer of the U. S. Assay
Office at Boise on the 13th.
J. R. DeLamar is to be married
in New York City next Thursday to
Mias Nellie Virginia Sands, who is
one of the society leaders of that
city.
The entertainment given last Fri
day night by Mrs. Prey's school was
very good. Thirty-four dollars were
taken in, which has been turned into
the hydrant fund.
W. T. Mendenhull, a mining man
of Chicago, arrived here last Satur
day and will make a tour of the min
ing districts of the county. Mr.
Mendenhull made a call on the
World.
Appointments and disappoint
ments are the order of the day, and if
Idaho is a fair sample of the ratio all
0Ter Uncle Samuel's domain, it
w >ll be about as one to ten—ten dis
eppointments to one appointment.
The new assayer of the U. S. As
sa y Office receives a very compli
mentary notice in the Boise Demo
cr *t, which we copy. It will be en
dorsed by the people of this county
where Mr. Church is known by every
body. That he is just the man for
the position there is no doubt among
bis friends and acquaintances. What
18 nee ded for this position is a prac
tical assayer with good business qual
1 cations, and Frank fills the bill ex
setly.

The Body Wound Floating In » BB ke
River Identlfled.
Boita Biatesmen.
It has been ascertained that the
body found a few days ago in Snake
river, at Bacon's landing, was that of
Charles Irvin Knight, a stepson of W.
A. Forbes, of this city, and well
known here.
It has also been discovered that
Knight was murdered and not acci
dentally drowned as was first sup
posed.
The officers think they have the
murderer spotted and he will be kept
under olose surveillance until direot
testimony oan be obtained. He will
then be arrested.
A Statesman reporter called at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. Forbes, the
stepfather and mother of the mur
dered man.
Mr. Forbes said Knight left his
house, 626 Washington street, about
5 o'olook in the afternoon of Deo. 9,
1892, to go across the river for the
purpose of looking after some prop
erty. He did not return as he ex
pected, but went on to the ranch of
one Biltgen, about five miles from the
city.
On the following Monday Biltgen
came to town and told Mr. Forbes
that Knight, who was a peddler, had
sent in for his pack, containing a lot
of notions and some jewelry, valued
in all at about $100. The paok was
delivered to Biltgen, who took it
away.
On the 17th of December Biltgen
again came to the city and Mr. Forbes
questioned him as to Knight's where
abouts. He was told that on Tues
day, the 13th, Knight had taken his
peddling outfit and started out to sell
his notions, going in the direction of
Snake river.
This was the last Mr. and Mrs
Forbes heard of Knight until they
learned of the finding of the body,
They oould hardly believe it was
Knight's remains, notwithstanding the
description of the clothing tallied
with that worn by Knight when he
left this city. Last Monday, howev
er, they went to Caldwell and thor
oughly identified the body.
Mr. Forbes said Knight was thirty
seven years old. He had no known
enemies.
The skull of deceased was crushed
when the body was found, and this,
taken with the fact that no trace of
the peddling outfit can be discovered,
and other information gleaned bear
ng on the case, confirms the belief
that Knight was foully murdered
Boise Democrat: Capt. Bledsoe
has found in bis claims blue fire opals.
He sent samples back to eastern ex
perts and they reported that it was
variety never before seen or heard of
by them. They are quite a deep
blue, and while the flashes may not
be so brilliant as in the usual fire
opals, they will make a rare and val
uable gem. He sends in word that
he has plenty of them.....Mr. Wheel
er, (George's brother) who came in
day or two ago, says opal prospectors
have recently made some very flat
taring finds. He also says that claim
owners have just begun to get on to
the extent of the field, and that it is
now believed to be fully twenty-fiv

A BIU ENTERPRISE.
A six-horse team, loaded with sup
plies, passed through the Basin last
Thursday, bound for Garden valley.
The team came over the Hawkins
road. The supplies are bound for
the mouth of the Deadwood Fork of
Payette, and were sent in by the
Consolidated Payette Gold Mining
Co., limited, whieh filed articles of in
corporation a week ago yesterday
with the Secretary of State. The
capital stock is >200,000, all paid up,
Near the month of Deadwood Fork,
Payette river describes a horseshoe,
and this company proposes to run a
tunnel to oarry the water of the river
and therehy drain the bed for over a
mile. The bed of this river is very
rich. The length of the tunnel will
be only eight hundred feet A sur
vey was made last fall and the scheme
pronounced practicable. During low
water a great deal of gold has been
taken out along the banks of this
stream, but the best pay is in the bed
the river. Lee Bunch and others
located the bend mentioned, last fall.
The locators were without means,
and the next step to be taken was to
place the merits of the scheme before
men of money. This Lee Bunch did,
and succeeded. A number of the
original locators sold out for small
amounts. Lee held his interest, and
stands more than a good chance of
aking a fortune. That an immense
amount of money will be taken out
the tunnel proves a success, is be
yond question. Lee Bunch and
Wm. Youren have been employed by
the company to make a trail up to
the claims, over which to pack sup
plies. It is the intention of the com
pany to push work on the tunnel as
rapidly as possible. Whether or not
contract will be let, we bave not
learned.
Boise Democrat: An end man in
minstrel troupe gets from one to six
hundred per week. Lottie Collins,
for her boom de ay song, got twelve
hundred dollars per week. Jim Cor
bett made about forty thousand dol
lars out of bis fight with Sullivan, and
as Gentleman Jack on the stage he
has cleared as high as thirteen thou
sand dollars in one night. Carmen
cita, the Spanish danseuse, has danced
herself into a big fortune in this coun
try within the past few months. Pat
ti will not sing for less than five thou
sand dollars per night, and she al
ways gets it and frequently much
more. A U. S. Senator receives, in
eluding mileage, but eight thousand
dollars per year, and the big editors
and preachers about the same,
college professor gets barely enough
to keep body and soul together, and
the school teacher whose salary reach
es seventy-five per month is doing
well. There is much more money in
these degenerate days in a woman's
feet or a bronze-faced woman's vul
gar song, the warbling of an opera,
or the brawn of a shifty man, than
there is in brains. The world ap
plauds more the winning boat in a
college regatta, shows greater hom
age for the stroke oar than it does the
student who graduates at the head of
his class. Brains for money and hon
or are no longer in it.
Wardnkr Barbarian: It is with
feeling of deepest sadness that we are
called upon to record the suicide of
our highly respected citizen, Justus
Loeber, which occurred early yester
day morning. The news which spread
rapidly through the town proved
shock to our people generally, and
those who were acquainted with de
ceased could hardly realize the fact
that so gentle, genial and companion
able a man could have committed the
rash act. Since the fire Mr. Loeber
has been in a very despondent state
He has frequently alluded to his for
mer losses and reverses of fortune,
and referred to the last calamity as a
blow he oould hardly bear. The wri
ter was talking with him on Thursday
evening. He complained of feeling
badly and said he was broken heart
ed. The sad details of his taking off
are briefly told. About T o'clock
yesterday morning Mrs. Loeber dis
covered that her husband was not in
the house, and on entering a store
room adjoining the kitohen, there, to
her horror, she discovered him hang
ing by the neck, his feet almost touch

BKT SUGiR_ INDUSTRY.
A F artery May be Established Hear
■else city.
BoIm Statesman.
J. E. Jennings, Secretary of the
Utah Sugar company, who has been
in the city for several days past, yes
terday informed a Statesman reporter
that he was making arrangements for
the establishment of a beet sugar fac
tory for this city.
Mr. Jennings says he can seoure
plenty of capital, and that there are
hundreds of acres of splendid land to
be had, but he will be compelled to
wait and see what action Congress
takes in the sugar bounty question
before starting any new enterprises.
"This is the only thing that stands
in the way of the erection of large
sugar works in this section at once,"
he added. "The soil around Boise is
the best I have ever seen for sugar
beet culture, and if we ever start in
here it will be on a very extensive
scale."
In speaking further of the sugar
bounty he said if the present bounty,
two cents a pound, is taken off and
no duty imposed on foreign importa
tions of sngsr, the result would be
most disastrous to the Utah industry
and in fact to all others in this coun
try. In such a contingency not only
would all propositions looking to
wards the establishment of factories
in other localities by his oompany be
postponed indeflnitely, but the com
pany would be absolutely compelled
to close down its works in Lehi val
ley.
The sugar industry in Utah is now
in its third year, and is considered
well past its experimental stage
During the first year 1,000,000 pounds
of sugar was produced, while during
the second year the amount was in
creased to 1,500,000 pounds. This
year the company expects to produce
about 3,500,000 pounds of sugsr.
There are 125 men employed at the
factory, hut indirectly hundreds of
men are given employment.
THE CURB A FRAUD.
James Lamoreaix Claims that He was
Fllmflaismed by tbe Easor
Liquor Habit Care.
Pocatello Tribaue.
James Lamoreaux, of Idaho Falls,
has brought suit in the Fifth District
Court against the Ensor Institute of
Pocatello for $6,000 damages be
cause they tried to and failed to cure
him of the liquor habit. The com
plaint is a piece of humor equal to
the best productions of Bill Nye. It
sets forth:
That on or about the 20th day of
November, 1892, defendant was hold
ing itself out as an institution for the
permanent cure of the habit of li
quor, morphine, opium and tobacco.
That the plaintiff therefore, to-wit,
for the period of five years, more or
less, had been addicted to the habit
of using intoxicants to excess.
That relying upon the good faith
and reliability of said defendants, he
paid to said defendants the sum of
$75 for the cure of said liquor habit.
That after the period of five weeks
defendants declared plaintiff cured
of said liquor habit and delivered to
him a certificate to that effect, the
ginal of which is hereto annexed
and made a part of this complaint.
That said cure so-called was abso
lutely worthless and of no effect
That the treatment known as the
"dope" or medicine administered in
ternally and the "shot" or h>perder
mic injection in the arm not only did
not act as a cure, but has rendered
plaintiff incapable of perfo'mtng the
ordinary business of his profession in
business-like manner siuce that
time.
That plaintiff is a professional jour
nalist and that his services are worth
at least $50 per week, and that for
the last five months plaintiff has been
incapacitated from his duties and his
mind is affected.
Wherefore plaintiff prays judg
meut in the sum of $1,000, with dam
ages for impaired constitution in the
sum of $5,000 and for all proper re
lief.
The certificate which accompanies
the complaint is as follows:
No. 60. Ensor Institute op Pocatello
To Whom it may concern :—This is to
certify that James Lamoreaux, of Idaho
Falls, State of Idaho, has taken a lull
course of treatment at the Ensor Institute

Information has been received ren
dering it qnite certain that Frank F.
Church, of Idaho City, has been ap
pointed assayer iu charge of the gov
ernment office in this city. Without
any disparagement of others who
were applicants for tbe same position,
no better appointment could have
been made. Mr. Chnrcb had an ad
vantage over the other applicants in
the fact that be is a practical mim r
alogiat. This waa one of the prere
quisites demanded by «le authorities
at Washington which the appointee
waa found to possess in an eminent
degree.
Mr. Chnrch it a native of Maine.
He waa born in 1850 and came to
Idaho in tbe spring of 1871, settling
in Boise Basin where he has panned
the business of assaying in such man
ner as to gain the entire confidence
of the mining men and bankers of the
State. Hon. Ben Willson says he
has often taken gold to Mr. Church
bulk withont weighing, to be
smelted, assayed and run into bare,
such waa bis confidence in his integ
rity. Tbe gentleman it forty-three
years of age and has an estimable
wife and family of young children at
his borne in Idaho City. His appoint
ment was due in a great measure to
men like Ben Willson who detailed
to the President by letters all the
special qualifications of Mr. Church
for the position. He is now county
treasurer of Boise county and man
ages the Idaho City bank. Close ap
plication to business has told some
what upon his health but not so mach
as to incapacitate him from filling the
position to which he has been appoint
ed in a manner acceptable to the gov
ernment as well as the bankers and
mining men of tbe State and eastern
Oregon. This first appointment to a
federal position will prove a very
popular one, and if tbe administra
tion will exercise equal discrimina
tion in its remaining selections it will
tend greatly to command the confi
denoe of the people. It is safe to say
that under the administration of Mr.
Church the business of the assay of
fice will be largely increased.
Mr. Cunningham, the retiring as
sayer in charge, is a gentleman who
has filled the office as acceptably as
any one could, not a practical miner
alogist. No complaint has been made
of which the Democrat has any
knowledge. The fortunes incident
to a political change in the govern
ment alone led to his retirement.

Sam'l Magee Meets With an Acci
dent.
Centerville, May 15, '93.
Sam Magee, an old timer of the
Basin, ran a pick through his hand
while at work in placer diggings near
Centerville, last Wednesday. He
was piping, using the ordinary hose,
and having set the pipe, by propping
it up with a stick, was picking in the
bank when the stick fell over, turn
ing the nozzle so as to throw the wa
ter on Mr. Magee. He started to run,
clinging to the pick with his right
hand, but caught his foot in some
roots and fell full length upon the
bedrock. Some say in the fall, his
left arm being extended on the
ground, the hand palm downward, the
pick was swung over so that its point
struck the back of his left hand with
suoh force as to drive it entirely
through his hand and protrude half
an inch on the other side. Being
alone he drew the pick out of the
hand himself. As he is an old man
the shock and loss of blood made
extremely difficult for him to get
hero he could find assistance, which,
luckily, was not far distant. The
hand was dressed and he appears to
be getting along very well.
Mr. Magee had been laboring sever
a) weeks fixing to work some ground
he has in the gulch just above Cen
terville. He has only a short run of
water and was just fairly started when
he met with this accident. It is very
bad for him to be disabled just when
he was all ready to work and water
running full blast. Fitz.
The Hailey Times says the owners
of the Texas Star, near Soldier, are
highly elated over the appearance of
their mine. They made two or three
mill runs, late last fall and in early
winter, and thus ascertained that their
ore was free milling and a paying
proposition. They have since cut in
to a vein of galena ore carrying gray
copper and gold. This vein is a foot
thick, and if at all extensive the own
ers feel that their fortune is made.

In the seventies, as tbe sot of '69
proposed, "to strengthen the public
credit," the government passed a law
fur the issuance of one hundred mill
ions of bonds expressly to buy gold
with, which it gave to France for
ninety-four millions of gold.* The
government gold then amounted to
one hundred and twenty millions.
On this it resumed specie payments.
The bank notes were redeemable in
tbe so-called legal tender, and the le
gal tender in gold. The government
reduced its legal tenders (greenbacks)
to about three hundred and fifty mill
ions. All outstanding claims against
the government were payable in ape
cie, and very little specie with which
to do it. Silver bad been demonet
ized, which was not known by Presi
dent Grant until two or three years
after he had signed tbe bill; but it
was finally discovered and silver was
partially remonetized. This saved
the gold, otherwise tbe money sharp
ers would have kept it in a corner all
the time and the government and ev
erybody else paying a premium on it.
