Adam Kalz, who has been visit the World's Fair, returned home nday. .Tin attendance at the dance in nterville last Friday night was not ge, but forty-five tickets were sold, proceeds being fully up to expec ions. The dance was given for the nefit of the public school of Cen rville. Sheriff Lippincott last Saturdav mmoiied a jury of twelve men in e placer ground case between Chi se and white men of Pioneer. The rv was accepted without one being cused by either side, which is some ing unusual. Lov. McConnell, when he re sed to appoint delegates to the St. "uis Silver Convention, said if the Iver cause was defeated he "would w to the inevitable." Do the peo e of Idaho want that kind of material r the Senate? Do they want bow s or lighters? If it is a first-class "er and straddler they want Me ill surely "get there." As silver has been completely nocked out for awhile, we arise to ggest that our great and glorious ternor forthwith prepare to per °rm the bowing act promised a few eeks ago. While he meekly hows thers will renew the fight with in reased vigor. It is well to give Me pointer to the effect that he cannot ow himself into the Senate. We <"e no doubt that he will bow to e inevitable after the election of le next U. S. Senator from Idaho. Low McConnell said at the Ketch m Silver Convention that if the Re publican party continued to oppose the free coinage of silver he would La'e it, and lately he has been worry "ig more than a little over the rumor tLu Congressman Sweet had severed •he bonds that held him to the once Brand old party. Mo could not be le 'e that Willis could possibly be such a traitor and he would still hope that the rumor was false. Me con tinues to be consistent in one thing, *nd that is his unbroken record of constant inconsistency. A COMPBOMISK ÏFTÏCTÏD. The at ate Mmgaa Head Beau. t* be Taken Btateamai, fcuncUv. A compromise has been effected between the State and the Coffin, Stanton company with reference to the floating of the State wagon road bonds. Yesterday the company, through its attorney W. A. Underwood, ; •igned a contract to take the balance of the bonds, amounting to $115,000, in consideration of the time for pay ing the premium being deferred. The firm contracts to take $38, 000 of the bonds at once and $27,000 worth on Dec. 1, 1893. This issue of $65,000 was made on July 1, 1893, but the Coffin, Stanton company were unable to comply with the terms of their contract and the bonds were not taken. The firm agrees to pay the 11 per cent premium, amount ing to $7150, on April 1, 1894, to gether with interest at the rate of 5 per cent from July 1st. The remain der of the bonds, $50,000, are to be taken, when tendered, any' time be tween April 1, 1894, and July 1, 1894, the premium to be paid imme diately upon the bonds being deliv ered. The State officials have security for the performance of the contract on part of the Coffin, Stanton compa ny in the shape of $10,000 in bonds deposited with the State Treasurer. The Stat6 officials now turn the en tire matter over to the Wagon Road Commissioners. The first contract made with the Coffin, Stanton company provided for the payment of the premium upon the delivery of the bonds. When the financial depression came on, the firm adopted unusual tactics to find some loop-hole through which to escape, but the contract wa9 impregnable. They secured extension after exten sion from a lenient administration. The officers of State finally threat ened to sue the company, and an at torney was sent out to arrange a com promise, if possible. This was yes terday consummated on the basis al ready stated. The Wagon Road Commissioners will meet in a few weeks. There will be sufficient money available to commence work on the road early next spring. In setting up the marriage notice in last Friday's World the typo got in a figure 1 instead of a 3, making the year 1891 instead of 1893, and the proof reader overlooked the error. An error of this kind is always re gretted by the newspaper man, bat they will occasionally occur, in all papers, both large and small and of high and low degree. The marriage took place in Garden valley cn Oct. 31, 1893, the contracting parties be ing Matt Zapp and Miss Anna Carri gan. It is useless to apologize to Matt and Anna by promising to do better next time. The young couple starts out in wedded life with the very best wishes of a large circle of j friends. Not in 1891 but -93, they J start to sail the matromonia! sea. They'll glide just as smoothly and happy and free as if the World had I married them in ninety-three. Wm. Byrne came over from Neal district last Thursday and returned Saturday. Mr. Byrne is at work for Plowman & Co. He says their mine is looking fine.

Moke rain. This fall keeps up its records as an exceedingly wet one. ; «*(if«/rv or ■■sdrieasor Last Saturday Andrew Hans-m, Wm. Quinn, John Chaumont and Jas. Robison were brought before the Probate Court on a charge of misde meanor, Ah Din & Co. being the complsintants. On the 19tb day of October they pat • notice and stakes on placer ground on Crimea creek, near the mouth of Muddy, a mile be low Pioneer. Chinamen were at work in the claim. The men told tbe Chinamen to "show their papers" or get off of the ground. Tbe Chinamen bad a bill of sale of the claim, given in 1886 by Henry McGninness, Geo. Anderson and son and Matt Davis. The Chinamen went to their cabin, got the bill of tale and handed it to Mr. McGoinness, who'afterwards told two of the re-locators that he had the bill of sale. The latter said it made no difference—that Chinamen could not hold mining ground anyway. On Oct. 20th the four men went to the claim, removed the Chinamen's sluice boxes and put in their own. The bill of sale was given in 1886. It appears that prior to 1887 China men could purchase and hold mining ground, but the law of *87 prohibits them from holding it except by lease. This case, however, was not to decide whether or not Chinamen can hold mining ground. The charge was that the re-locators took possession by unlawful means, and thereby com mitted a misdemeanor. Ainslie and Dunton appeared for the prosecution and Workman for the defense. The jury found the men guilty as charged and Judge Hart yesterday fixed the fines at $5 each and costs. Three or four other claims held bv Chinamen at Pioneer have recently been taken by white men. The prevailing opin ion among miners seems to be that Chinamen, under present laws, can not hold mining ground, and that it is no violation of law to order them off and take possession. They are, however, wrong as to both proposi tions, and even if the first proposition were correct the latter course would not be lawful. Cbir.amen, by the law of 1887, are prevented from hold ing mining ground by purchase, but they can lease. Judge Willis Sweet several years ago rendered a decision to the effect that Chinamen could not hold mining ground either by pur chase or lease, but this decision was overruled by the Supreme Court. These men have the reputation of be ing good, law-abiding citizens, and it is the general opinion that they com mitted tbe misdemeanor thiough a misapprehension of the law. Be tween what j evft en tered a restaurant in Boise and J 8aid tbat if lbe Sherman j aw was re . aw, and what the j f great majority in mining regions be lieve ought to be the law in regard to alien ownership of mining ground, there is a gap that cannot be safely crossed without being first bridged by a statute in such case made and j provided. ' ! A sessatiosal storv has been tel-! , w . . grapnea trom asmng on. A miner, j wild-eved, talcv, and with blood and \ ' •' . j etermma ion ant \enffeance in ls I pealed he would go on to Washing , . the prospector vacaterrthe ground as | , v , K , 6 if suddenly affrighted. 1 he restaurant ton and slav Grover. The desperate miner took his departure and tbe ■ Boise restaurant man soon lit out and | landed in the nation's capital ot.v and found the aforesaid miner pros- j pecting around the White House, ap parently looking for float and any surface indications that would lead to the discovery of the great gold bug. When he saw the restaurant keeper ! keeper informed the police; the citv j r . j . was thrown into a wild state of ex citement; officers were detailed to guard tne White House and the de tectives began to look for the sup posed assassin. The Statesman says a close investigation has failed to disclose the absence of any restau rant keeper from Boise. The World about a vear ago , , printed 1,500 quartz location notices, and thev have all been sold but half 1 , ■ ,. ! & dozen.

Rhoades returned from Long Tom Sunday evening wh^re be bad been to commence work on tbe dam to be put in below the Hubbell ranch about tbree-fourtbs of a mile. Tbe work will not be discontinued on ac count of winter weather, as by tbe time this cornea on Capt. Rhoades will be at work on the tunnel where be will be protected from its severi ty. The tnnnel will be for tbe pur pose of laying a four foot iron pipe in which a valve will be placed for the delivery of water. Lumber has been contracted for with which to build a house for winter quarters. The conditions are remarkably favor able for the putting in of this dam on account of the sinuosities of the chan nel. The dim will be supported by nstural walls of rock rising in the dam itself as it will be constructed, and making the dam proof against the possibility of being carried out by any pressure that may come upon it. This dam may be made tbe greatest one on the continent and the reservoir behind it will be a vast and beautiful body of water of great depth. When the first section of this dam shall be completed a supply of water will be guaranteed in the very nature of things, and there will be no reason for doubting that Mountain Home will soon be surrounded by fruitful ranches and the day of sage brash be passed.

SetestiSe Fre es. It waa not bis proper name, but they all called bim Sulphureta be cause of certain wonderful results wbicb be claimed to have obtained in experimental operations on "rebell ious" sitter ores, said experiments having been made by tbe aid of a frying pan, to wbicb be bad adapted some kind of a muiier or stirrer. He had "advanced ideas" on many sub jects besides metallurgy. His exter nal costume consisted of s cork hel met, a pair of brogana, a ditto of overalls, and a garment of bis own design and manufacture wbicb was a cross between s seek coat and a heavy oversbirt. He used neither tobacco, whisky, profane language, nor, to any great extent, soap. I had not been long in conversa tion with bim when something struck his crank and set him going, or, rath er, set his tongue going, wbicb was less desirable. He was that most discomforting of beings, an unappre ciated genias; at least be was unap preciated, very much so. His voice was characterized by that peculiar style of melody combined with vigor which marks that of a macaw disport ing himself, head downwards, on a perch. Pointing a dirty forefinger at me, he screeched, "You an' me's pard ners! You an' me's pardners!" I was the one bis soul had yearned for; I was bis affinity; ray mind was the oasis in the desert of ignorance and prejudice in which his ardent soul had wandered. I was the only one he had met who was capable of ap preciating the great truths he had discovered. His delight was un bounded tnd irrepressible; mine was of a milder character. I bad one partner already, but that circum stance did not disconcert him; we were to be inseparable from that mo ment, he and I. My old partner and : a if at I htd claimed a stresm of water wbich wefe , boQt , Q and : my new " water-wheel which a touch n j t „ ' by pardner " and I were to of his genias wss to evolve from the ; P Qt U P silver ore.

We would go in | simple germ of an old wagon wheel. We would put up a wheel and work sdrer ore from Cerro Gordo; we would teach the world how to work on to together; he would furnish the brains, j I the money, and together we would j 1 once more revolutionize metallurgy j and make our fortunes. ____ _ ■ ___. Sulphurets was a bel.ever tn evo- , lution, and one day he worked him self into a state of unusual enthusi asm. Perhaps it wss the considera I . , , ; ; t,on °* the great things we were go ing to do which naturally led up to ' : . , , , , , . , the plans of the Almighty; perhaps 1 -------- ---------6—,' > I-----r he, like some of our parsons, had pri- ; T - t li L rate information on tbe latter.

In about a week he disappeared; where r r as none knew be went none kne whence he came. Some years later I was at Benton,' ; in Mono county, and one day my quondam friend Sulphurets rode into town on a sort of chariot, which he had improvised from the front wheels and shaft of an old wagon.

He had given the metallurgical revo , . e . 1 ' lution a rest, and was inter.t on a new I to give way before the power of genius. He would drive machinery i lution a rest, and was intent on a new ' scheme. This time it was steam which had' genius j bv the power of explosives, ganpow der, nitroglycerine or anything that i would " bust." His fundamental proposition was that tbe result of an explosion was s vacuum, and, ss nearly ss I could gather, bis plan was to propel bis piston in one direction by an explosive, while the return stroke was to be effected by atmos pheric pressure. I suggested chloride of nitrogen ta a well known tboogb little used ex plosive of established reputation for punctuality and dispatch. I was convinced that bis engine woold go if be should once get it started. I also believed it would create a vacuum at tbe spot where be would be at the critical moment, so I encouraged bim all I could. Bat there was a bitch. The encouragement that he wanted was the kind that bean tbe stamp of the U. S. Mint, and of that I had none to spare for a vacuum. Finally, though be did not explode and create a vacuum, be went off and left a vacancy which suited me as well. I saw bim ride away on bis unique sod ingenious chariot, and have had the pleasure of never meet ing him again. C. H. A. Tbe Matabeles in Africa were de feated by British troops s short time ago.
