Libby will soon have ore from [the Chickahominy mine crushed in [ the Blaine mill. Mrs. Thos. Barry went down to j Boise yesterday in company with her [son-in-law, F. F. Church, who has j been here on business. The Oregon Pacific road is again I ready to paw and tear up the earth j and rush toward the rising sun with j its eye on Boise as the objective point. 1 his is about the ninety-ninth I time the Oregon Pacific has been all ; read y t0 rush, but has not yet per formed the rushing act. The Grand Rebekah Convention, I. O. O. F., which met in Chicago on I Sept. 26th, adopted a pian of "floor ; work ' and ceremonies for the instal lation of officers offered by Mrs. H. I W. Dunton, of this place. In such a contest Mrs. Dunton certainly did w 8ll, and it must have beeu with much pride that she saw her work adopted by the highest authority in '-hat branch of Odd Fellowship. ' Five and one-half tons of ore from 4 6 South Africa claim, at the mouth of North Elk, owned by McNally & McGill, were crushed in the Blaine mil1 and turned out eighteen and one-half ounces. The gold has not yd been assayed, but will run about if P er ounce, making the clean-up * 296 ' or a little over *50 per ton. , ore w »s taken out to a width of front one and a half to two feet, and ' ïas not assorted. They have a ar ge ledge of second class ore that 1 go *20 or *25 a ton. They expect |° hate another crushing made this «11 of the higher grade ore. Work atl continues in the shaft, which is a Iwo-compartmeqt. MH * IN CNICAHO. The following extracts are taken from a letter written on Oot. 8th by Mrs. H. W. Dunton to Mra. E. W. Jones, of this place. Mrs. Danton went to Chicago as a delegate from Idaho to the Rebekah Grand Conven tion wbieh met in Chicago on Sept. 26th: K "I arrived here on Sunday, Sept. 24th, and Monday morning bright and early started out to hunt Odd t el lows and Rebekahs, and yon may be sure I found them at 260 South Clark street. There I met Grand Sire Campbell and many others of the Sovereign Grand Lodge, and many Rebekahs, among them our President of the National Convention, and Margaret K. Ford, of Illinois, Tem porary Chairman. In the afternoon we all went to view the parade, which was the grandest pageant I ever saw. The carriages of the Sovereign Grand Lodge, alone, reached five block*. The next day we met in conven tion. I was given the name of the business manager of the convention; so much for the P. N. G. of Rose Re bekab No 18. I was appointed teller and worked with a will and called out the names steadily for more than an hour. They wanted me to run for Secretary, but I would not let them nominate me for any office whatsoever. The President, however, honored me with the appointment of Grand War den of the national body. In the af ternoon we were called to the Fair and to the music hall to listen to ad dresses of those chosen by the com mittee. Some of them were grand and some were very poor efforts. Missouri carried off the honors. I was delighted to think I was a wo man and a Rebekah when the able woman from that State left the stage. Now to the Fair. It is grand, magnificent, beautiful, heavenly. It is as if one were in Paradise when standing around the Grand Basin watching the electric fountains play during the illumination. Words fail me when I try to describe it. Our building is the most unique of any State building at the Fair. It is a design wholly unlike anything else there and attracts widespread atten tion and admiration. Coming up the walk from the 57th street entrance we pass by many white buildings and in the distance looms up a dark struc ture shaping itself into a huge log cabin, as we near it, with the in scription "Idaho" over the stone cave like entrance. Passing through this into the building to the right of the hall is a room with "Commissioner" written over the door; to the left, "Reading Room," where one finds all the Idaho papers scattered about. Continuing on and up the stairway we find rooms on either side contain ing collections from the "Gem of the Mountains" scattered about. In one corner opals can be purchased, so a placard says. Turning again to the right we enter the main room, an swering for a parlor aud kitchen in a log cabin. At one side of the center is a huge fireplace with an iron camp kettle hanging on the cross iron. Up above is a mantle with shelves on either side. Here are huge doors of rough plank, a very large table of planed wood, settee in front of fire place with very high back and seat of leather. There are four small chairs and a large one in each front corner of the room, and a bench seat under the windows, with many stuffed pillows lying about, an oaken side board or cupboard on which stands a brass spirit kettle and a set of old fasbiond blue China, a piano in one corner, and in another a willow table where Idaho ladies are served with tea "free gratis." On the floor are three large rag-woven rugs, and in the walls are sticking many miners' candlesticks with candles in them. One sitting there hears such expres sions as those from visitors: "Now isn't this nice?" exclaims one lady friend to another. "Now this remind* me of my mother's kitchen," says an other, from Kentucky. A man from Texas or Missouri—I don't know which—exclaims, with delight de picted all over his countenance, in language more forcible than elegant: " You may call this rough and old fashioned, but a man's got to know what he's a doin' to plan it and hev it put up!" I agree with him per fectly. The idea must have been an original one, and it was a genius who superintended its construction. I went to see " America " and Ter ry and Henry Irving. They were immense. I shall wait here until Mr. Dunton and Herbert come from the East, which will be on the 12t'n. Then we will go on together to Boise, and will arrive there iu time for the Grand Lodge. Well, I must »top, as it is getting very late." w "' J - flays the Beefl will set fee Bellt The great William 1. of Idaho, the aper of Grover I., ia put to a lot of trouble end annoyance in successful ly straddling the State wagon road question in s manner to appease both the friends and enemies of the road. He la now the target for the shafts of both aides. The road business was out of bis banda after be signed tbe bill, so far as his duties as Gover nor were concerned, but it appears be bss been sticking his nose in and get ting himself into trouble unnecessari ly. He signed the bill, knowing that a veto would have ruined bis chances for tbe Senate, and after signing it has shown himself to be anything but a friend of the measure. Now he says, as contracts were not let this fall, he would like to know how the road can be built. That ia very easi ly answered; bnild it. But it will not be built if William I. can prevent it. If the law is defeated William I. thinks he can go before the people next fall and smooth the way to the Senate. To the friends of the law he can ssy--" Didn't I sign the bill? Beyond that I had nothing to with it." To its enemies he can say—" 1 signed it, but didn't I defeat ita con struction?" There has been a far greater effort made to annul the road law than to construct the road. William I. hat not been alone in this work of nullification, but makes him self most conspicuous and ridiculous by efforts to explain bis position so as to remove obstructions from the highway to the U. S. Senate. But, nevertheless, he'll find the way filled with more stumbling blocks than he ever dreamed of. The greatest mis take Willian I. ever made was in ac cepting the nomination for Governor. To straddle an important question like this one and then try to convince one side that he is leaning heavily this way, and the other side that he is throwing his great weight the other way, is very trying, and the effort does not meet with any great amount of enthusiastic applause. It has been charged that Grover has given bis appointees instructions to boycott all papers that do not up hold his great administration of mis rule, and we are somewhat in clined to believe that charge is true, having some little evidence to sustain that belief. Grover's ap pointees, however, instead of silencing the press the least bit, will be the means of adding another black spot to the already black record of tbe present maladministration. One cer tain appointee received aid from the World in more ways than one in se curing his appointment, and even if the World had not assisted him we didn't think he would have said "stop my paper" without instructions to that effect from headquarters. It is not hardly possible that he would thus exhibit such utter ingratitude toward a friend who assisted him, without some maladministration in fluence being brought to bear upon him. We would not mention this little matter but for the fact that'it furnishes what appears to be some evidence of the truthfulness of the charge that the small calibred indi vidual who fills tbe chair of Presi dent, fills it only in a physical sense. Gradually the ranks of tbe new are being recruited from the ranks of the old. The following from the Boise Sentinel gives another instance of an old party man who has had enough: "J. M. Miller, at one time known as traveling correspondent for the Salt Lake Herald, and afterwards connected with the Anaconda Stand ard in a similar capacity, and who was known in almost every city, town and hamlet of Idaho as a stern, un compromising Democrat, has left the party and will hereafter affiliate with the Populists. Broken promises, un redeemed pledges, constitutes the stock in trade of this modern Democ racy. Mr. Miller can stand it no lon ger, and hereafter he is with the par ty and the only party of and for the people." The uimMm Flaw. S. J. Klein, of Salt Lake, is in the city. Mr. Klein is connected with a vast colon!/.;ng scheme. II« propos es, if suitable arrangement:« can be made, to bring over from 2500 to 4, 000 families to settle in the State end make industrious and good citizens. He says that Idaho'* soil and climate are incomparable. Mr. Klein will bave a talk with Governor MoCcTnell and other prom inent citizens on the subject. He thinks that the State is in danger from land grabbing corporations, and that it is desirable to have tbe coun try settled up by bona fide settlers who will be content with email hold ings well titled.—Statesman. Let's tee; 4,000 families on 40-acre tracts, under some big canal, with perpetual contraot to buy water. For ty inches of water to each family is 160,000 inches, at *1.50 per inch — *240,000—quite a handsome annual income for tbe canal company. The income to the capitalists and tbe bur densome tithes on the peasantry and their lands will go on forever, though men may come and men may go. If tbe colonists were to pay this sum to the government for a single year, (or two at moet) it would enable the lat ter to construct the canal, without any outlay from the treasury, and, forever after, those families could re ceive water free, with just a sufficient water tax on the land it covers, to, in tbe aggregate, maintain the canal in operation—exactly similar to our public road system.— Weiser Signal. Hewer Owe te the State In a few days State Auditor Ram sey will send out an expert to make an examination of the books of the various County Treasurers and other officials, says the Spokane Review, for the purpose of determining what atnonnt is due to the State. It is be lieved the counties are holding about *25,000 belonging to the State. Under the Territorial regime the fees for the collection of Territorial funds were deducted in making remittances. The State Constitution provides that tbe State revenue shall be remitted in full. Nevertheless, county offi cers have continued the old practice for two years or more. Recently the matter was tested in the courts and it was decided that the State was en titled to its full revenues and that the counties should pay all fees. The amount deducted before this decision was reached is thought to reach *25, 000 and an effort is now to be made to recover it. Representative Sweet, of Idaho, and Hartman, from Montana, para lyzed Eastern Republicans by voting to get a quorum to bring up the Election bill. Their reasons briefly were: "You of the East, Repub licans and Democrats alike, seem to have conspired to destroy the West. You have voted to kill silver. You are patiently waiting to strike the tariff from lead, copper and wool. Your President refuses to execute the plain command of a law which was intended to prevent the inunda tion of our country by a flood of Chi nese; you refuse to survey our pub lic lands; and you will neither do anything with the arid lands nor per mit us to. What obligations are we under to do anything to oblige you? and why should we not Parnell Con gress if we can?" The stand is already haring its effect. The Union Pacific railroad com pany has gone into the hands of re ceivers. The paralysis of business generally bas greatly crippled the business of this road. Price sf Wheal and Preaideala. Boise Sentinel. The mine owners in Shoshone coun ty have made a proposition to the mi ners to go to work on a sliding scale, to be governed by the market price of lead. How would it do to apply this to Grover Cleveland and fix his salary on a sliding scale, to be gov erned by the market price of wheat? When that commodity sells for *2.50 a bushel, as it did under Lincoln, he shall receive *50,000 a year; with wheat at *1.25, *25,000; when it drops to 75 cents, *12,500; and when it touches 32 cents, *6,250. We will wsger seventy-five cents against three-quarters of a dollar that an ar rangement of that kind would make a bimetallist out of Cleveland before this extra session adjourns. Wx. Frame came over from Quartzburg yesterday and went on to Boise. He aaid it was probable be wonld go from there to the World's Fair. Mr. Frame said the Gold Hill mill woulJ start up in eight or ten days. Another level has been sunk on the Pioneer, making the depth of the shaft 400 feet—tbe same depth as tbe Gold Hill shaft. Tbe new Su perintendent of the company is work ing the sulphuret ores of this oom psny, using tbe Forest-McArthur cy anide process. He has put this plant in tbe mill, and is working 30 tons a day. Another tank will soon be ad ded, making tbe capacity 50 tons. Work began on tbs sulpfaorets four or five days ago. Tbe company has five or six thousand tons of this kind of or* which has been saved by con centrators in tbe mill. They assay $20 or *25 per too. A couple of Salt Lake men sometime ago made a failure with tbe cyanide process or» tbe Gold Hill sulphorets. The gold was all extracted from tbe sulphurate, but the zinc shavings failed to pre cipitate tbe gold. Either tbe process was a failure, or those whe employed it did not thoroughly understand the principles of that new method of gold extraction and precipitation. Tbe sulphurets referred to carry zinc blende, and this may account for tbe failure. Mr. Frame, however, says that zinc, unless it has bright ear faces, does not interfere with the suc cess of the process, as tbe cyanide will not take bold of it. The ziic in the Gold Hill sulphurets is of a dull, lusterless black color. Rev. Patrick Murphy, of Moscow, writes to the World that he will be in Boise this week and will pay a visit to bis old friends of this place next Friday, and hold services on Friday evening and Holy Com munion Saturday morning early enough to give him time to leave for Boise by stage that day. Parties in Boise have located ground on More creek recently—160 acres from the Warm Springs down, and 160 acres up tbe creek from the Springs, and are still snrveving and staking off 20-acre claim* on both More and Elk creeks, above town John Wallace has charge of tbe lo cating, but will not state his object, but says a large amount of money, it is almost certain, will soon be put into an enterprice, the nature of which he is not at lii-erty at present to state. The ground is located eith er for the purpose of patting in a bedrock flume or prospecting for pay gra\ei below the false bedrock. No one can conceive of any reason for keeping the nature of tbe pioposed enterprise a secret. The people will gladly welcome the advent of capi tal, no matter whether it is to put in a bedrock flume or to prospect below the false bedrock. Another hurricane in South Caro lina, on the 14tb, wrought devasta tion and death in and around George town and on the adjacent sea islands. The entire water front of George town was flooded and much damage done. At Magnolia Beach almost every house was washed away and thirteen people drowned. Henry Johnson and Julius Lin steadt are hauling ore from Eldorado gulch to the Blaine mill. They will have eight or nine tons crushed. This ore is float that was saved while working placer grouud. Duquette, Johnson and Linsteadt will have about fifteen tons of Illinois ore crushed in the Blaine mill in a few days. American Union and Eldredge sewing machines will be sold by this office for *35 and *37 respectively. Each haa seven drawers. Agents charge no less than *60 for these same machines. They are brand new. Call and see them. • Ball to Centerville. A ball will be given in Centerville on Friday night, Nov. 3d. Ticket, including supper, *2.50. The pro ceeds will go to tbe public school iu Centerville. Oct. 17. td. Flint A Walton will soon have twenty tons of ore from their gold mine, between tbe Forest King and Summit Flat, crushed in the Forest King mill. Archie Irwin came in last Sun day from Irwin's ranch, at the mouth of Clear creek, Tbe undersigned offen for sale his ranch of 160 acres, and all tools and crops thereunto belonging, for the sum of *1000. Tbe ranch is located on Porter creek, in Jerusalem, Boise county, Idaho. It ia patented; water right recorded many yean ago. Tbe appartenances thereunto belonging are too numerous to mention in an ad. Call or write if you want to bay. My reason for wanting to sell is ina bility to farm it to make it pey on account of continual sickness. Address Wm. R. Ray, Horseshoe Bend, Boise county, Idaho. Sept. 26. 4w. The silver mine owners at Aspen, Colorado, made a proposition to tbe miners, looking to a resumption of work in all tbe idle properties. When silver is 80 cents an ounce for a month tbe miners will receive from *2.50 to *4.50 a day, according to the else* of work. When silver is 82± cents, 25 cents a day will be added, when silver ia 83J cents, then 50 cents a day will he added. The ac ceptance of this proposition would give work to 700 men. Over 1,000 returned to work in the Leadville mines recently on tbe same scale. Tbe Aspen miners refuse to accept tbe terms. Notice is hereby giveu that taxes are now due and payable at this of fice and will become delinquent on tbe second Monday of December, 1893, and if not paid prior to that date ten per cent will be added there to.
