Mining and Wa ter Litigation a specialty. Office over Shainwald's Store, Boise City, Idaho. Jan 12-lf COUNTY AND STAT£ Silver was 69$ cents on the 29th. Wm. Barker went down to the capital a few days ago. Dr. C. C. Corbiere, dentist, re turned from Banner last Sunday, and will remain here a few days. Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Crofton moved out to Banner last week. Tom is at work on the roasters at the mill. L. Young, a pioneer merchant of Bellevue, died at that place a short time ago. His age was a little over 63 years. Two op the Dowling brothers passed through town yesterday on the way to Sheep Mountain, where they own quartz claims. Almost every day men are seen passing through town with pack horses going into the mountains to the north for the purpose of pros peoting. Wm. Byrne and Wm. Gibbs have located placer ground three miles above the Edna mine, in Beaver dis trict, but on what stream we did not learn. They are digging a ditch to convey water on to the ground. Tui work of taking the water out of the Boise County Mining Co's shaft began yesterday. When the water is lowered to the depth of twen ty feet with the bucket the pump will be put in. Rev. J. D. Willson, of the Edna mine, held services in Masonic Hall, this place, last Sunday evening. Those who heard the Rev. gentleman were well pleased with his sermon. He will preach again next Sunday, both morning and evening. Henry Stkvkns, in the employ of the Silver Mountain oompany, ar rived here last Saturday from Gra ham. Mr. Stevens and one other man formed the population of Gra ham last winter and this spring and summer. The winter proved very lonesome and monotonous, and what made it worse was the discontinuance of the mail. Mr. Steven* will remain bare a few days. In time« of sickness and death, when cars, anxiety and grief weigh heavily, and hearts of relatives are aching, and the heavy load cannot be lifted, it oan be lightened and made lea* hard to bear, by the aid, sympa thy and tender miniatrationi of kind hearted friends. Daring the long illneas of our dear wife and mother, suob friends were M not found want ing" in those hours of need. We return oar heartfelt thanks to these kind friends, and assure them that their "labors of love" will never be forgotten. Hbman Jones and Family. Thkrk is not gold enough in the world to meet the interest for one year upon the world's indabtedoeas, and yet the money power has suc ceeded in placing nearly all countries on the gold basis, and President Cleveland has called an extra session of Congress to knock the last prop from under silver as a money metal in this country. At no time in the history of the world has the money power ruled as it rules now, and at no time have the debtor classes and producers of all kinds been robbed as they have been since millionaires combined to lessen the stock of met •I money ; and at no time in the his tory of the world have millionaires piled up unearned wealth more rap idly. The higher their piles the greater their greed. The entire an nual product of gold from the mines of the world is only $80,000,000, and the most of this is used in the arts With gold the only metal, the circu latory medium cannot be increased. With all countries on a gold basis the Rothohilds and a very few others will then own the earth. That is their purpose. R. H. Davis, editor of the Cald well Tribune, formerly of the Malari Enterprise, a life long Republican and who is generally conceded to be the ablest writer in the State, has gone over to the Peoples' party. He comes down flat footed and with both feet If the Republican members of this Congress make a fight against silver, life long Republicans by the hun dreda of thousands will desert it, and Democrats can be relied on to do the same thing. There is a ques tion now before the American people which, in its final settlement, means either liberty or slavery for the masses. It is no time now for strad dling. After this question is settled it will then be in order for the peo ple to divide on the tariff, rights of states and of the national govern ment, which have separated the Re publcan and Democratic parties; but free and unlimited coinage of silver the people must have, and they must come together on that issue regard less of other questions that pale into utter insignificance in comparison with it. Boise Sentinel: A. S. Senter, of the board of trustees of the Soldiers Home, says he is disgusted with the apathy of the business men of Boise, relative to securing the home. When asked if they would guarantee the amount subscribed, $4,000, they re fused to do so. If they will not guarantee it how can they expect ns to accept it, he said. Contrast this with the position taken by Lewiston, which oomes here with an offer of $12,000 in land and money, every thing guaranteed. The board has examined the various locations about the city, and will go north today and visit some of the prominent towns in that section of the state. Caldwell has adopted strong silver resolutions with the true ring. The resolutions close as follows: Resolved, That we are in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of sil ver and gold as it existed prior to 1873; and, furthermore, that we here by instruct our representatives in Congress to labor and vote accord ingly, without compromise, warning them that if they prove recreant to their trust and duty they will be considered and treated as traitors to the commonwealth of Idaho. W. S. Haskins, state mine inspect or, oame up from Boise Sunday, hav ing recently arrived from the northern part of the State. He went up to Banner yesterday. Three days races at the Star Rauch—September 14tb, 15th, and 16tb. The ad. will appear soou. K. P. Plowsan is now cleaning up in bia placer olaio on East Hill. at Are On Meaaten Wtakealagl At reported by tbe Boise Sentinel, Senator Shoup, in bia speech at the silver meeting in Boise, spoke in sup port of * compromise on some other ratio, and Senator Dubois also inti mated that be would support a com promise. If this statement is true, tbe only silver Representative Idaho baa in Congress ia Willis Sweet. He is firm and atanneb. Nothing lake warm about Willis. He is able, keen, and untiring in bis advocacy of tbe rights of the people. Besides these qualifications, be is a polished orator and can bold bis own with tbe beat of them. If oar Senators desert ns at this critical time, they ought to be politely, bat firmly and nnani monsly asked to step down and oat and give place to two others who are in sympathy with the rights of tbe producers, who have been systemati caliy robbed. We always did be lieve Shonp to he a well meaning, liberal and good-hearted old man, but that he ia not possessed of talents or other qualifications that would fit him for such a position as a U. S. Senator; in short, our opinion of him has been, and is, that he is a wesk brother, and event* in bis public ca reer confirm that belief; but Dubois, in bia long and honorable career in Congress, has never yet betrayed tbe confidence of hit constituents, and we cannot believe that he will do so at this time. We cannot help but think the editor of the Sentinel mis understood him. W* Nut »• rmpruiw. The people of Idaho, we are satis fied, want no compromise on the sil ver question. In order that our Sen ators may understand the sentiment of Idaho, the meeting to be held in Ketchuro, if it voices the sentiments of Idoboans, will demand justice, ab solute, and nothing less, and instruct Dubois and Shoup to vote for no sil ver bill that does not place the white metal where it was up to 1873. The ratio up to that time was 16 to 1, and if silver had not been legislated against that ratio would be as true a one to-day as it was from the foun dation of the government up to 1873. Idaho's motto should be—"Free and unlimited coinage at the ratio of 16 to one—nothing less; no compro mise." A Parmer Hatlryite. News- Miner. Daniel Fulcomer, editor of the Hai ley In ter-Idaho in 1888, has been ap pointed to make an address before the World's Congress of Education at Chicago next Thursday. His subject i®, "An Ideal Course for Normal Schools." Since leaving Hailey Mr. Fulcomer has been president and pro fessor in social science at both Indi ana Normal University and Western Michigan College. Before this he took post-graduate courses at Har vard and Clark Universities, being elected to a fellowship in psychology at the latter. So he writes to the News-Miner. Ashby Turner has been engaged for sometime in scraping the tailings from a spot of ground 100 feet square the south side of his cut. The soil has be reached in places, and in another week all the tailings will be cleared off. The depth of the tail ings is twelve feet. He has in one overshot wheel for draining the ground, and will soon put in another. Mr. Turner owns a strip of ground 800 feet in length up and down the creek and from rim to rim on the sides, making a width of 600 or 700 feat. This is nearly ail new ground which was covered with tailings in early days. Statesman: General Straughsn has made the following changes in the clerical force of the Surveyor General's office: James H. Wicker sham, Jr., as stenographer and type writer, in place of Miss Mattie Cohn; Charles Pavnton, transcribing clerk, place of Miss Lizzie Redway; John D. Gray, messenger, in place of Charles Milleman. The successor of Ernst H. Hesse, chief draughtsman, will probably be John A. Long, draughtsman under Gen. Straugban's former administration. Bert Day returned last Sunday to the Mountain Queen. Bert ia at work in this mine. Thr Banner mill began crushing last Wednesday. HEWS OF SILVER MEN the of to Maatar JnmiM «Jew. Warmer T A beat the Preaeat MtaaUaa. Gen. A. J. Warner, president of tbe Bi-metallic League, held a con ference with Senator Jonea, of Ne vade, in Near York recently. Tbe announcement that Congress will bold an extra session August 7tb make# it necessary for the bimetallists to come together. After tbe confer ece a reporter saw both Mr. Warner and Senator Jones. Gen. Warner wa* asked to express bimself upon tbe present condition of tbe silver question, and said: We have now arrived at the most critical period of tbe century. Id fact, I consider tbe present move ment, with regard to stiver, the most important economic revolution history. It ia a lifa and death strug gle, not only for bimetalism, but for metallic money. If bimetallism goes, monometalism will also go, and tbe principle of tbe automatic regulation of money, that is to say, its regulation through tbe production of tbe mines, will come to an end. Bimetallists favor the retention of both gold and silver at a parity, but at wbat ratio can be determined only after both are admitted to monetary use on equal terms. If, after that baa been done, the United States cannot main tain tbe parity of 16 to 1 the ratio can be changed, as it was before." At this point Senator Jones added: "If the non-producing and income receiving and creditor classes con spire in their interests to destroy the automatic system by the demonetiz ation of one of the metals, and that the only one of the metals that prom ises a supply sufficient to maintain equity of contracts and stability of prices and to prevent a destructive rise in tbe value of tbe unit of money, it may not be a matter of surprise if the producing classes and debtors in turn should unite co serve the other metal in the same way." hazzard circular, where it was pound. Col. Ijee Crandall, Secretary Nation al Executive Silver Committee —Sir:— In reply to yoor polite request of yesterday, expressing a desire to be nformed of the origin of the copy of the "Hazzard Circular" copied bv The National View some four years ago from the columns of the Council Grove Guard, then published bv me in Council Grove, Kansas, 1 have to say that I obtained the original copy from a Mr. J. W. Simcock, the cash ier of the First National Bank of Conncil Grove, Kansas. I, at that time, say about the year 1873, was tbe attorney for that bank, and one day when the caahier was writing up and arranging a large number of ac cumulated letters and other papers of supposed value either he or I came across the "Hazzard Circular" to gether with the circular of the Amer ican bankers and signed by one Buell. I asked Mr. Simcock for these two circulars and he gave them to me then, and at the same time, in re plying to questions I asked him, he said that their day of usefulness was over, that his friends in New York, some bankers there, sent them to him, that he might the better under stand the history and origin of the national banking system, as be was comparatively a new hanker. I kept them for the light they threw upon the financial questions of the times, and published the "Hazzard Circu lar" first September 18, 1886, omit ting the date therefrom, for the rea son that it had dropped off, having been so folded that when I came to print it the date had been lost off. The Hate was that of the summer or fall of 1862, but the exact month or y 1 cannot recollect, November, 1 hink. Very respectfully, Isaac Sharp, 28 Ter.th Street, N. W, Washing ton, D. C-, August 20, 1890. THE HAZZARD CIRCULAR. In 1862 an agent of European cap italists sent the following "confiden tial" circular to American bankers. "Slavery is likely to he abolished by the war power and chattel slavery destroyed. This I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care of tbe laborer, while tbe European plan, led on by Eng land, is capital oontrol of labor, by controlling wages This can be done of by controlling tbe money.. Tbe great debt that capitalists will see to it made out of tbe war, must be used aa a measure to control tbe volume of money. To accomplish ibis bonds must be used ae a banking ba sis. We are now waiting to get the Secretary of tbe Treasury to make this recommendation to Congress. It arili not do to allow tbe "greenback," aa it is called, to circolate as money any length of time, for we cannot control them. Bat wc can control tbe bonds and through tbam the bank TBI BUELL CIRCULAR. 'Drar Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such dai ly and weekly newspapers, especially the agricultural and religion* press, as will oppose tbe issuing of green back paper money, and that yon also withhold patronage or favors from all who will not opposa tbe government issue of money. Let tbe government tasne tbe coin and tbe banka issue tbe paper money of tbe country, for then we can better protect each other. Tu repeal tbe law creating national banks or to restore to circulation tbe government ieeua of money will be to provide tbe people with money and will, therefore, seriously affect yoor individual profits as bankers and lend er». See your Member of Congress at once and engage him to support our interest that we may control leg islation." htte the Yellowstone. Idaho Folle Timer Brig Adams baa shipped to Chica go a car containing thirty-one bead of elk, mostly yearlings. They were captured near Jackson's Hole during the winter and have become quite gentle. On account of tbe warm weather considerable difficulty wi experienced in getting them here, as they were obliged to haul them in wagons to this point, one dying dar ing tbe long trip from the heat. Thousands of unemployed work men in Denver are being augmented daily by others from throughout the state. The county and city and nu merous charity organizations are do ing their best to feed and shelter tbe great army of penniless people, but they are incapable of meeting all de mands. Tbe banks bave called upon the U. S. troops at Fcrt Logan to be ready to protect their institutions in case of an outbreak. Several days ago a large crowd of unemployed men gathered at Eighteenth and Mar ket streets to exchange ideas on the question of food and shelter. The police broke up the meeting. The funeral of John Randolph took place at Placerville last Saturday afternoon ander tbe auspices of the I. O. O. F., of wbicb order be had for many years been sn honored member. Odd Fellows from all parts of the Basin were in attendance and everybody at Placerville joined in the procession. The sermon was preached by Rev. J. W. Huston, of Boise Citv. Jas.
