Y all the counties of this State have contiibuted their portions of the $2 ,000 for the cause of silver, but Boise county has not yet come to the front. The amount this enunty is expected to contribute is only $100. There must be a head to everything of this kind.

VOM THIS WHITK METAL. Idaho rointis» Krspendlair Mebly to Ike Appeal for Fula There seems to be little doubt, not withstanding the hard times, Idaho will not be behind her sister silver States in the matter of subscribing liberally to the fund now being raised for the purpose of fighting the ene mies of the white metal. Idaho's assessment amounts to $2, 000, and that sum was divided among the different counties of the State, and a Vice President appointed for each county. Eugene Lorton, Secretary of the State Bimetallic League, is receiving encouraging news from all of the counties. Owyhee has aheady sent in its assessment of $200 and word from Bear Lake is that the sum ex pected from that county will be forth coming in a few days. Alturss, which has already raised nearly $1000 to assist in the contest for suprema cy of silver, responds that its assess ment will be available shortly. A. A. Crane, Vice President from Koote nai county, who was in the city the other day, said his connty could raise the amount assigned to it. The following are the assessments nf the various counties: Ada and Latah, $250 each; Sho shone and Owyhee, $200 each; Washington, Alturss, Lemhi, Ban nock, Canyon and Kootenai, $150 each; N"-z Perce, Boise, Custer, Lo gan and Idaho, $100 each; Bingham, $75; Bear Lake, Oneida, Elmore, Cassia aTid Fremont, $50 each. Sbnatob J. G. Watts returned a few days ago from Silver City, where he has been on legal business. He says work was recently resumed in the Black Jack mine, which closed down in July, and a full force is again at work in the DeLamar mine, and the silver stopes aie again turning out ore. Twenty-five miners were added to the force a week or two ago. Wm. Hagler has been dangerously ill the past forty-five days. He was first taken with ty phoid fever. After twelve days the fever was broken and he then be eame afflicted with enlargement of the liver, and is still confined to his bed. His brother is with him. A number of Boise county men are at work over there, among them Thos. Faull, Thos. Ashcroft, Thos. Bar rv, Jas. Weston, N. E. Bancroft and McNah. Mr. McNah and Amos Brooks are running a blacksmith shop at DeLamar, and are doing well. Weiser Signai.: Newport is the name of a town located on the Pend d'Oreille river. The Washington and Idaho line runs through the street of the town, and he postoffice is in Idaho and the railway depot Washington. A tough could shoot a man and skip across the street and they would need extradition papers to bring him back. he town has a live paper called the News, and its heading reads, "Newport, Kootenai county, Idaho," but should it move its office across the street it would have to change to "Newport, Ste vens county, Washington."

The Grand Lodge of Masons yes terday concluded the business of the session with the instsllstion of the newly elected officers and the Lodge adjourned »ine die. The session just closed, while the attendance was lighter than usual, was one of the most harmonious and enjoyable in the history of Masonry Idaho, and the delegates will carry sway with them many pleasant recol lections of the meeting. The next Grand Lodge will meet this city on the second Tuesday in September, 1894. The following is the list of the newly elected and appointed officers: James A. Pinney, Boise, Grand Master.

Hunters who have been out lately in the mountains surrounding town report deei very, scarce. A frei track is now sufficient cause for ex citement. Big game has about van 'hed from every section of the Stal« . Disreputable characters the past two or three years have killed thousands of deer and elk for the hides. They camp at the licks and do a wholesale business. It is said that being una ble to carry on the work on a scale of magnitude commensurate with their desires by the use of guns, they adopted a plan on scientific princi ples to keep up with advanced and quick methods of modern civilization. Their plan was to poison the licks, which proved very successful. As proof of the truth of that rumor, two prospectors from Central Idaho re port that at a lick somewhere in Idaho county carcasses of skinned deer were strewn around in great pro fusion, and an examination failed to show any bullet holes. Men who would do such work ought to be promptly hung without being given an opportunity to escape punish ment through technicalities and loop holes of law. They ought to be strung up without mercy or benefit of clergy. And after being hung they ought to go where the weather is hot, and hot the year round. the per the no a ty no as to The crop of newly invented and alleged successful gold savers this year is unusually abundant.

Sand that prospected 25 cents to the cubic yard, after being run through the ma chine failed to yield a solitary color. They will at once apply for a patent. As it is an amalgamator it will not be confined to Snake river sand, but can he utilized in any ore-crushing mill, and its capacity will be greater than any now in existence. U. P.

The State Board of Equalization, ■itting as a Board çt Assessors on railroad property laat Saturday, fixed the assessment of tbe main tinea at $6,500 a mile, and branches at $5,000 per mile; and the Utah ft Northern from Pocatello to the Montana line $5,500 per mile. This is a reductiou from last year of $500 per mile on the main tine of the Union Pacific, and on the Utah ft Northern, while it raise of $2,000 per mile on the Northern Pacific, the latter having been put in laat year at $4,500. Gov ernor McConnell and Attorney Gen eral Parsons favored $7,000 on the main lines and $6,000 for Utah ft Northern, on the ground that no re duction had been made in other classes of property. Secretary of State Curtis said he would vote for a redaction, as railroads were earning no more than the fixed charges. The Governor asked him if he had any figures to show that snch was the case. He sairt he had not, bat it was notorious fact that railroad proper ty was not profitable. The Governor replied that it was also notorious that no other class of property was now profitable. Treasurer Hill and Aud itor Ramsey held views similar to those of Curtis, and by a vote of three to two the Board fixed the rates as given. The aggregate railroad as sessment of the State will be about $300,000 more than last yesr, owing to tho increase on the Northern Pa cific and the new line of the Great Northern. Mettre.

Libby and Ed Beck have located good placer ground near the Chickshominv and have been digging a ditch to convey water to it. Mr. Solomo has also struck the C.'hick ahominy ledge east, and located a claim, which gives good prospects. Mr. Beck also has an extension be tween this recent location and the Chickahominy, which also prospects well. the as his " Matt MaP.z, shoemaker of this place, who left a week ago last Thursday to look for a better place than this, says he thinks he has found it. That place is DeLamar. Matt returned Sunday and says he will move over there in eight or ten days. He says he will come back when gold is struck in the bedrock shaft. Thos.

One hundred thousand people set tled upon the Cherokee strip on tbe 16th, the day it was opened. At noon the signal was given and the great race began. Mounted cowboys who were in the lead set fire to the prairie grass, hoping thus to turn aside those who were following. The fire was stopped by a deep gully thiee miles south of Arkansas City, In the race many were injured and some killed. 1 here are many dead borers on the prairie. Four new townsites have populations of 5,000 each. Soldiers shot four " sooners " near Stillwater, 0. T., and Arkansas City, Kansas.

Sometime ago be pub lished an offer of a sewing machine as a prize to paid-up subscribers. He was applicant for the position of poet master of tbe town, a plane be wae thoroughly fitted to fill. It was a derstood there was likely to be change and the incumbent bed stated his readiness to step down and ont " whenever Grover wanted him to elk." But a jealousy wav created by tbe editor's application, and that sewing machine offer was made a pretest by partisans for working np a scheme against the Democratic aspirant. A complaint was filed against bim an der tbe anti-lottery, laws; he wat charged with using the mails for lot tery purposes. There was much commotion over it at the time, bat it was chiefly treated with derision and looked upon as a spite measure and unlikely to he entertained seriously. But the United Sûtes attorney, it seems, has pressed the charge and a majority of the grand jury have been induced to indict Mr. Wallis, thus putting him to the vexation and ex pense of defending his case. Six good men and true " stood out against a true bill, but that was of no avail. The case was pressed for trisl. A demurrer was filed to the in dictment on the ground that it did not state facts sufficient to constitute public offense. The Court took the matter under advisement and Judge James H. Beatty announced he would render his decision next November. Tbe trial jnry having nothing to do was discharged, and it is stated that nearly $3,000 expenses were entailed, principally for this one petty case. We regard the whole proceedings as malicious, partisan and contempti ble. If the editor was violating the letter of the law a word from the postmaster to him would have stopped it. But other papers with similar announcements passed through the mails without a breath of objection. It is to be hoped that the Court will see that the spirit of tbe law has not been infringed, that the demurrer will be sustained and the editor re lieved from further embarrassment, ex; ense and, as we view it, vindictive persecution. the the a " by PAVABt.UK'AX 1MTBREBTB. Denver New*. The Chamber of Congress meeting called for next Tuesday evening should be largely attended. The subject of the Pan-American Con gress at St. Lonis in October will come np, and there should be an en thusiastic endorsement of tbe pro posed gathering. It is now more than evident that more intimate trade ralations must be cultivated with the gulf ports and the southwest. The Atlantic ports —Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore—all are against the inter ests of the trans-Mississippi, trans Missouri region. Chicago is merely their western agency. For years thev have levied tribute on our pro ductions and fattened off our trade. At the dictation of the London gold trust they are now striving to place their chains about our necks. The pirates of the Barbara coast were never mote mercenary. In New Orleans snd Galveston the West has two friendly ports whose interests are identical with its own, and especially with the Rocky moun tain region. They will welcome the trade of the vast and productive coun try to them. The South American republics are a silver using people and thev are all anxious for closer commercial relations with this coun try. A Congress such as is proposed hy the Pan-American association will bring together the men who are mut ually interested in the southwestern trade, and cannot fail to formulate influence« that will materially assist in promoting the commercial, indus trial and financial welfare ol tbe re gions named. Governor Hogg, of Texas, has been requested to call a council of gover nor« of silver States. The object is to suggest that such States passa law making a silver dollar weighing an ounce legal tender for the payment of debts. The miners will have the money coined in Mexico. Some lawyer* aey tbe plan is constitutional uitaua uTfca Présidant Lincoln, April 14, 1865, the day of bis assassination, wrote the following letter to Seboyler Colfax, who was at tbe time visiting on this It was his last publie writing, and voiced bis sentiment regarding the West. His views will be read with interest: Ms. Colfax:— I want yon to take me s sage from am to tbe ari whom yon visit. I bate very large ideas of tbe mineral wealth of oar na tion. I* believe it practically inex haustible. It abounds all over dm a country, from tbe Rocky Mountains to the Pacific, and its de velopment has already commenced. During tbe wer, when we were ad ding a couple millions of dollars ev ery day to oar National debt, I did not cere about encouraging the in creese in the volume of our precious metals. We bad the country to save first. Now that tbe rebellion is over thrown, and we know pretty nearly tbe amount of oar national debt, tbe more gold and silver we mine we make tbe payments so much tbe eas ier. Now, I am going to encourage that in every possible way. We shall have hundreds of thousands of disbanded soldiers, end many have feared that their return borne in such large numbers might paralyze indus try by furnishing, suddenly, a greet er supply of labor than there will he a demand for. I am going to try to attract them to tbe bidden wealth of our mountain ranges, where there is room enough for all. Immigration, which even tbe war has not stopped, will lend upon our shores hundreds of thousands more from overcrowded Europe. I intend to point them to the gold and silver waiting for them in tbe west. Tell tbe minera for me that I shall pro mote their interests to tbe utmost of my ability, because their prosperity is the prosperity of the nation; and we shall prove, in a very few years, that we are indeed the treasury of tbe world. Abrsham Lincoln. is Met Be Baa After All. A prominent lawyer of Buffalo, says a paper of that city, tells of compromise be ODce made on behalf of a certain railroad company with an Erie connty farmer whose wife had been killed at a railroad crossing. A few months after the terrible bereave ment tbe husband, who bad sued the company for $5,000 damages, came into tbe office and accepted a com promise of $500.
