Tesman: The State officials reliable information that the building the proposed State road will greatly exceed the nation. This being the case ill sell no more of the bonds, are opposed to commencing on any of the several divisions road unless there is sufficient to complete those divisions, would favor the commencement «rations at either end of the and the construction of the road -ntinuous line until it is com or the appropriation exhaust This cannot he done, however, law divides the appropriation to give each section a specified nt. this real Bat of not ing be be for the the per is for in AXUlktEU THE HOAD LAW. The State officials bave finally an nounced that they have concluded to annul the State wagon road law. Many things point to the fact that this has been their intention right along, and they were very probably only awaiting some plausable pretext behind which to orawl, and hide their real animus. What right have the State officers to annul a State law? Bat perhaps, in this age of official de generation, it is impertinent and out place to ask snch a question. Is not nullification of law and the mak ing of law, by those not clothed with that authority, the order of the day, from President down? It seems to be useless any more to enact laws. There is no asanrance that they will be carried out. Usurpation and nul lification are in the air, and are con tagious. Legislatures are created for the purpose of enacting laws, and the execution of them left to other officials, whose duty it is to see that these laws are made operative, not to annul them or by usurpation wrong fully enact others. But a conscien tious performance of duty is no longer the guide of officials in a very large per cent, ol cases. Th» will of the officials is the rule. The executors of law, or those presumed to be such— those placed in position for that pur pose—if true to their oaths, do not inquire, " Is this a good law or is it a bad law," or " is it as I would like it," and then on their individual judg ments, personal interests or whims carry it out or annul it. When an appropriation is made it is out of their jurisdiction to annnl the law making it because they believe, or pretend to believe, the appropriation is insufficient in amount for the com plete accomplishment of the purpose for which it was appropriated. It is their duty to go ahead and make that money go as far as possible. But these State officials, it is our firm be lief. do not know whether the appro priation for the State road is suffi cient or not. But this makes no dif ference. That is not their business in an official capaoity. If they go ahead in good faith and carry out the provisions of the law as far as lies in their power, and the appropriation is sufficient, they have no responsibility for that deficiency resting on their shoulders. That rests with the Leg islature making the appropriation. But by annulling that law they have the stigma of a violation of their offi cial oaths resting upon them. But stigmas in these days of official rot tenness rest easy. In fact they are sort of gloated over as a species of smartness. It has been apparent to many from the very start that the State officials intended to defeat this law. With that disreputable aim in view a pretext is always easy to find. The first move was to secure the ap pointment of Road Commissioners who were opposed to, and fought the bill. Such a one was appointed from this county, and it has been stated, and generally believed, that a high official—or rather a low official, if reports are true, occupying a high po sition—used his influence to secure that appointment. At any rate, the bitterest enemy of the road bill in Boise county was appointed Road Commissioner for this county. No doubt the same scheme was worked, or attempted, in other counties. Some of the bills allowed for surveys were outrageous. The firm that bid low est on the bonds offered to put up all the money in a short time after ac ceptance of their bid. This offer was not accepted. When they were called on for money it was not forth coming, and the State officials—beg pardon—State usurpers and nullify fers —said they were very sorry, or words to that effect, that on account of the great stringency of the money market the bonds could not be floated elsewhere. There is a greater strin gency around the State House than the stringency of the money market, and that is stringency of official in tegrity and a desire to do right. They no doubt snicker and say: "We've done a smart trick, and what are they going to do about it?" With an hon est intention to carry out the road law and build a good State road, the appropriation, we think, is all suffi cient. If not quite, the counties through which it runs would see toits completion, or if not the road would soon be completed, as the interior of the State was opened up. With the impetus given to mineral develpment as as a result of the completion of so much of the road as the appropria tion would build, would soon be the mesns of completing the remaining portions. But that has nothing to do with the case. It is the duty of the State officers to do ss the lew con templates. A given amount of money was appropriated for a given purpoee, and there is bat one thing to do, end do honestly. To do otherwise is usurpation, nullifi cation and perjury. The law does not say that these State officials (who possess sssumption, presump tion and other things similar and of large-sized dimensions, but nothing especially worthy of unbounded es teem) are to inquire if the amount of the appropriation ia sufficient, and if not to let the execution of the pro visions of the law ss to construction "go by the board," if they saw fit. It gave them no such discretionary pow er. Then where do they get it? They hare usurped it. They are the legislative, judicial and executive combined—a divine trinity—with other beautiful combinations. All honor to the great glory of these blooming officials. They spread all over, like "the flowers that bloom in the spring, trs la," but will all be cut down next fall, ya, ya. This is my convention and I pro pose to run it," are the immortal words of the immortal McConnell. Wonder if that i-n't his motto in all other matters, as well as in regard to the State silver convention? Didn't he sign the road bill and make it law? That being true, isn't it his law, and being his law hasn't he right to do what he pleases with it? Verily he has. Paraphrasing his im mortal words quoted above—-it is his law and he proposes to run it. Tak ing his sentiment expressed at the silver convention, as a kind of pre mise, that is a logical conclusion The whole character of MoConnell ir summed up in the immortal words quoted—" it is mine and I propose to run it." Everything is his that he has anything to do with, and as a natural consequence he proposes to run it. Why shouldn't he run what is his? He owns himself, for a certain ty, along with the earth and all things thereunto appertaining, and will, to be sure, run himself—into the ground. Now, if we have figured him out wrongly in regard to the road law, and he is on the right side and opposed to the nullification pro ceedings of the other officials, we'll have to acknowledge that he has ex perienced a change of heart and head since the meeting of the silver con vention and has quit the running busi ness, except, of course, running for office. No matter how hard times are next winter, nor how much more stringent becomes the money market, the people of this town will not starve. The choke cherry crop has been enor mous, and everybody has laid in au abuntant supply, out of which they have made jelly, jam and wine. Hun dreds upon hundreds of gallons have been gathered, and there are bushels still left on the bushes. A kind Providence has abundantly provided for " weuns " of the mountains in these starvation times. The goldbug robbers may corner and control ev erything else, but the choke cherry crop is still ours. Tuesday morning was a white and chilly reminder of the coming of winter and was in the nature of an announcement that the hoary headed old duffer was not far off, as his advance guards hove in sight The mountains surrounding town were white, and their immaculate robes extended down to near their bases. Oh, you snow, you chilly snow, you're quick to come, but slow to go. __ ^ _ Dan'l Vaughn measured the snow at the Golconda mine last Tuesday morning, and found it to be eighteen inches. Frank Riordan measured on the divide south of the Golden Era mine, Summit Flat, on Wednesday. The depth was twelve and three-quar ter inches. Frank said it must have been all of twenty inches the morn ing before. Snow was six inches deep on the More Creek summit last Tuesday morning. Four men are at work in the old Golden Era mine, on Summit Fiat. LEMHI tOIXTY MEKHATIOH. Salmon City Useorder. Last Friday morning a mysterious affair occurred at North Fork. Mrs. Maggie Hull has been doing the cook ing st Thomas' hotel, stid Thursday night Mr. Thomas, George Crogab and John Miller were all three occu pying s room in the house end were quietly sleeping st about 3 a. m. when the door was burst open and Mrs. Hull entered screaming, "Oh, I'm murdered! I'm murderedt I'm shot!" The three men sprang from their beds and on making a light they were horrified to find Mrs. Hull in her night dress with blood streaming from her left arm. They quickly placed her on a chair and on examin ing the arm found an ugly looking wound through the fleshy part of tile left arm and her head eat and bruised. They bandaged the injured arm and put her to bed. Sbe was greatly ex cited but finally made the following statement: She said while she was asleep in the room in the east end of Thomas' house, used as a kitchen, two men came in, and after render ing her unconseious by the use of an esthetics, carried her away. She said she did not regain consciousness until they were carrying her aoross the North Fork, wading the stream. After crossing they struck into the old trail on the east side of the stream and when they arrived at a point nearly opposite the house they shot her through the arm and went away and left her. She was barefooted, bat managed to walk back to the house via the old trail and bridges, although she was so faint from loss of blood that she was obliged to sit down and rest for half an hour in one place. As soon as daylight came three gentlemen started out on a tour of inspection. They easily tracked her by the blood which they followed across the bridges and on arriving at the spot described found quite a pool of blood and a 32 calibre pistol, from which one shot had been fired. This weapon was identified as one which Mrs. Hull had borrowed from Johnny Rowe a few days previous. This party examined the ground carefully and failed to discover eith er man 01 horse tracks, although they found the marks made hv Mrs. Hull's bare feet, from the point where they struck into the trail going and lead ing beyond where the shooting took place and along the trail returning. There was no sign of a struggle, and although she declared that one of the men fell down the bank to the creek no sign of this was seen. Her night clothes were soaking wet up to her knees, disproving her statement that she was carried across the creek. It is the generally accepted theory among those on the ground that the woman in a fit of temporary insanity, did the shooting herself. She told Geo. Thomas where to find the pistol, which was picked up in the spot indi cated by her. The affair is a strange one, as no motive can be assigned to any one for the deed. The wound is a pain ful one but not serious. We under stand that a party of men have been scouring the neighboring mountains search of the midnight assassins but with no success. Mrs. Hull is the woman who was arrested last winter on charge of poisoning her husband, but no evidence was found on which to hold her. The Democrat says R. E. Walker has left Boise with six men to com mence work on placer mines recently discovered by him on Payette river. He has secured for himself and com pany, on that stream, 840 acres of ground which prospecting has shown to be valuable. Every acre of it can be covered with water for sluicing. The Democrat does not give the lo cation of this ground, further than that it is on Payette. We do not know of any place on that stream where such an area of placer ground could be secured except on the big bars above Jordan's bridge, northeast of Banner. All these bars carry gold- _ __ __ American Union and Eldredge sewing machines will be sold by this office for $35 and $37 respectively. Each has seven drawers.

TWO MUHiriCAMT DISPATCHED. Botss Sentfnal. The other day two significant dis patches came over the wires. One announced the passage of the not in the House of Representatives, whiob unconditionally repeals the Sherman silver bill, and the other one a reduc tion of the wages of all employees on the Union Pacific system of from ten to twenty per cent. It is evident from this that the good times and far reaching prosperity to be inaugurat ed by Cleveland's Democratic-Euro pean financial policy, does not apply to wage earners. Under him the movement is inaugurated that reduces them to the pauper conditions that exist in tbe old world.- Less than a dozen firms will control all the gold in the country; in other words, capi tal centralized will control labor, and absolutely dictate the terms on which it shall toil and live. Before this power (concentrated wealth), the workingman's union stands in fear and trembling, and surrenders with out a struggle. Is it not time that all men who create wealth by their toil and sweat, should realize the fact that their only protection lies in a judi cious use of the ballot. At the pres ent time they are working at cross purposes. They unite for mutual protection and then go to tbe ballot box snd vote the very element into power that wilt nullify snd paralyze the effect of their onion. Tbe single or gold standard will be adopted in a few days, or weeks, st the most. With the contraction of tbe currency which will follow on the adoption of this policy, wage earners will suffer first. Their suffering is keen and intense now, and it is possible tbe bottom has not been reached. Yet, out of all this, some good may come. Some times it is necessary for the human family to pass through such an ordeal as the one they are now enduring. This trial and suffering will, when everything else fails, call them to a realization of the conditions that sur round them and wake them np to ac tion. Appulwtroewts or lev. HraSrlckx.

Mrs. Macum Smith came in from Banner last Wednesday. The Pittsburg t-bronicle thus de scribes an incident of the financial stringency: A Pitlsburger, who found himself in possession of a check for $600. marked "payable only through the clearing house," presented the paper at the bank on which it was drawn. "We can't cash it," said the teller, as he handed the check back. "It must go through the clearing bouse in the regular way. Deposit it in tbe bank where you do business." "I have no bank account," replied the man with the check. "Then take it to some man you owe money to. He will know it is perfectly good and will be glad to cash it for you to get what is due him." "Don't be so fast. I don't owe anybody anything." "Don't owe anything!" replied the bank officer in astonishment. "Great Scott, man, then you don't need mon ev." In this paper it. was recently asked if anybody kept a diary.

Grumbling ex pired today snd a bargain at the sease figure for the Gladstone and Leaf Chance claims was made, whereby the B. L. ft A. Reduction company, of Tscorns, became purchasers of these properties. This company owns s number of patenta for reducing ore by an electrio process, snd will at once put in a small plant at tbe mines to work the ores. Mr. L. E. Rice, a representative of the B. L. ft A. company, ia here, and be informs the Nugget that tbe redaction of the ores of these mines is e certainty un der bit company's process. That analysis of the ores has been made by Prof. Burson, the chemist of the com pany, and experimental test made on several hundred pounds of ore at smelter at Oregon City, Oregon, owned by the company, was so en tirely satisfactory that his company will put in a small plant without further experiment. Tbe only delay will be occasioned by the feet that they will have to construct tbe small dyna mo required. The Nugget expert, after having visited a number of claims in tbe Rooster Comb district two months ago, made the statement that there was little doubt but that the district would prove to be a rich producer, provided tbe valoes could be economically extracted from the ores. A large number of claims bave been located and the district, which is an upheaval of granite nearly four miles long by two miles wide abounds in veins of quartz one of which can be readily traced for three miles. Tbe values are in gold, with only a small per centage of silver, which adds to the importance of tbe district. Ev erybody here, of course, wishes that tbe company now taking hold of the best developed properties in tbe dis trict will be successful in tbe enter prise, thereby adding a new produc ing district to Owyhee's wealth of minerals.
