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

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.

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 crop of newly invented and
alleged successful gold savers this
year is unusually abundant. Weiser
is the last place to lay claim to being
the birth place of one of theae ma
chines. The Signal says H. F. Ran
dal and Beck Jeiiney have construct
ed a small test machine on a princi
ple of their own conception. Sevet
al tests on a small scale have been
made on sand from the Snake. 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.

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

The courue pursued in Idaho to
wards Mr. James H. Wallis, oditor of
the Montpelier Poet, is paltry and
shameful. 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
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

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.

feared that their return borne in such
large numbers might paralyze indus

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
