The wondeiful flour gold saving
machine which baa so long been pa
tiently waited for is at last on the
banks of Snake river at Lannon'a
Spar, sixteen miles from Caldwell, on
ground belonging to County Com
missioner, G. W. Paul. Mr. Raber,
President of the Portland Amalga
mating and Mining company was in
Caldwell last Murtdsy and informed
us that be was here to stay. One of
his machines would be in full opera
tion by the 10th inst., and said he,
"if there is any gold in the sands of
Snake river our machine will save it."
"We do not want to make any blow
about the business," he said. " We
have come here to demonstrate that
the fine gold along the banks of the
river can be saved at a cost that will
pay to work it even if there is only
50 cents to the ton. According to
Mr. Raber the average yield of gold
to the ton of gravel is about one dol
lar and at that rate one of his ma
chines will net the operator $100 per
day. We will not enter into any de
tailed account of the business at this
time. On the 10th of November one
of those machines will be engaged in
practical work and there does not
seem to be the slightest question
but that it will fulfill every expecta
tion. Mr. Raber said that he hoped
that many people would not come to
see the machine until that time, be
cause it would be annoying to have a
great number about while the plant
was being erected. As the machine
will be in constant operation all win
ter there is no occasion for a rush.
Wait until the tenth; then go down
to Lannon's Spar and see the whole
process. Mr. Raber has been at work
on his machine for thirteen years and
has spent $40,000 in its perfection.
He says that all the efforts heretofore
made were on a mistaken idea about
rusty gold. The Snake river gold,
he says, is not rusty. Gold does not
oxidize except by mechanical appli
cation. He says that his process will
instantaneously amalgamate anything
from gold as fine as to be impercepti
ble to a miner's greased pick. If
this machine proves anything like as
successful as is predicted, a revolu
tion will sweep over this country in
the next sixty days. Snake river
will be lined for hundreds of miles
with gold saving machines and mill
ions upon millions of dollars will be
wrenched from the earth. But peo
ple should not he unduly excited.
Wait until the machine demonstrates
its ability to do just what is claimed
for it and then go in as fast as you
can and enjoy some of the benefits.
Whv did not the Idaho World
give us an account of the scrap in
which Barney McGill and his partner
took a hand? Barney is well known
here and plenty of the boys would
have furnished a chunk of raw beef
for his discolored optic.—DeLamar
The World did not mention that
little scrap for the reason that Barney
did not want his old friends in Owy
hee to know that he had become fa
mous as a pugilist, being content to
wear the laurels simply as being one
of the discoverers of the best gold
mine in Boise county, but as they
have heard of it there will be no barm
now to say that he came out of the
scrap unscathed, unscratched and
unbruised. The story of the discol
ored eye was all a myth—an 'optical
, , . „ _ __high
delusiou." The world requests tbe ]
Nugget to correct that little eye-tem.

mond of the Kohinoor kind which be

wear nothing finer than a base metal

for gold is not left in the cold; he's

Six monts ago, when Carter Ham
son was a candidate for Mayor of
Chicago every newspaper in that city,
save the one he owned, was of opin
ton, or at leaat expressed the opinion,
that he was a dangerous man; a dem
agogue devoted entirely to hie per
sonal interests and ambitions; reck
less of the public welfare; identified
with the worst elements of society.
The palpite of Chicago of almost
every church, echoed tbe denuncia
tions of the prens. No man ever ran
for office in this country whose candi
dacy provoked so much vituperation.
Ruin was predicted as a sure conse
quence of bis election. Chicago
would be given op to tbe control of
gambling dens, rum shops and the
brothels and decent men would hide
their heads in shame of the millions
who were coming to see the World's
Fair. Nevertheless, he was elected
by an ovei whelming majority. If the
statements of the papers and pulpits
were true, the inevitable conclusion
from his success must be that the peo
ple of Chicago were hopelessly de
moralized, by voting for snch a man.
Carter Harrison was installed in office
some weeks before the World's Fair
was opened. He organized his gov
ernment, reorganized tbe police and
performed bis duties as Mayor, and
those who met him failed to discover
him the monster who had been
described. On the very eve of the
closing of the fair a crazy assassin
enters bis house, calls him to the door
and kills liim. The whole city now
mourns bis loss in unanimous recog
nition of tho great loss which the
community bas suffered. There is
not a word said now, except in Carter
Harrison's praise. It is recalled now
that he was elected Mayor four times
before, that his administrations were
always eminently successful and sat
isfactory, that he raised the credit of
that great city* to the highest, filled
her treasury, repaired her streets,
gave her a good police, and left Chi
cago respected by the whole world.
Is this not a great change? Certain
ly it is an object lesson which may be
pondered profitably by those whose
business it is to comment on the acts
and characters of public men. All men
who seek the people's suffrages bave
their faults as well as men who re
main iu the obscurity of private life.
To assail any candidate as he was as
sailed is inexcusable, but to thus assail
one whom the people had repeatedly
trusted and honored is follr. His
opponents expected him to abolish
crime, he was content to do all he
could to minimize it, because he was
satisfied that a reformer cannot strive
after the impossible, for such reformer
is intolerant of those who cannot be
reformed. There are standards for
tbe measurement of men which the
reformers of society do not always
appreciate. These are the standards
by which the common people measure
a man like Harrison was. In its way
and in its uses the popular standard
is safer than that of the professional
reformer. Bv this standard Harrison
was broader than any of his critics,
and hence the people of the great
city, iu spite of the vituperation
heaped upon him, joined heartily in
the universal honors paid to his
Rev. W. J. A. Hendrickx.

The reported shooting in Neel dis
trict was a hoax.
This fact developed Sunday even
ing when Fred Page Tuatin arrived
in the oity, bale and hearty, and as
sured hi* friend* that ha was still in
tbe land of tbe living and that no bul
let bed plowed its way into his anat
Mr. Tustin was seen Monday by a
reporter. He said there bad been no
trouble whatever at the mine. He
was probably the most surprised man
on earth when his wife arrived poet«
haste at the mine Sunday morning
and informed him of the story that
had been circulated in this city. Mr.
Tnstin was decidedly wroth and was
hunting for the party who brought in
the report, but without success.
The motives of the miserable
wretch may forever remain a mys
tery. The only effect of the report
was to cause Mrs. Tnstin, almost fren
zied at the thought of her buaband
being injured, perhaps dying, to
make the long trip to Neal daring
that dark, rainy night.
Tbe fiend who spread the story did
his work well. At each place where
he inquired the way to tbe residence
of Mr. Tnstin he took particular pains
to state there bad been a serious
shooting scrape at Neal. Reaching
the Tustin place he did not go in,
but standing at the door told Mrs.
Tustin of the affair. He then struck
out for a doctor, as he said. He
asked several parties to direct him to
the residence of a well known phy
sician, being careful not to forget bis
story, which he told each time with a
great show of excitement, failing,
however, to state who was injured.
When Mrs. Tustin hastily departed
for Neal it was generally supposed
Mr. Tustin had been shot. This
caused his friends much anxiety and
they were greatly relieved to find the
whole story a ridiculous fabrication.
The identity of the man who caused
all the excitement is as yet unknown,
and it would no doubt be the wisest
act of his life if he remains "dark"
for an indefinite period. It is impos
sible to get anything like an accurate
description of the fellow. It was
very dark when he was peddling the
lying report around and those with
whom he conversed were unable to
get a plain view of his features.
Little Cilate Creek Plaerra.
Idaho County Free Prew.
During the present season repre
sentatives of a California syndicate
of large capital have located a large
area of placer ground on Miller creek
and Little Slate creek, in the Flor
ence basin. Among the locators are
commissioners Josh S. Fockler, C. B.
Wood, Chas. Phillips, Mike Green,
Dave Lewis, Harry W. and Chas.
Cone, W. C. Newburn, W. C. Cran
dall, Peter Turnbull and others.
There are in atl 30 claims, embracing
about 680 acres, which takes in all
the upper meadows above the old
Van Buren ranch on Little Slate
creek, together with many tributary
gulches which are known to be rich
aud have been worked for several
years by Peter Turnbull, Victor
Chandemanche, J. S. Fockler, Bob
Royal, Cap. Wilson and others.
There is unlimited water power and
dump, and several miles of small
ditches to cover the side gulches are
already built and in constant use.
These locations comprise as promis
ing an area of placer operations as
can be found in the State. It was
alwars profitable, even when worked
in the hasty manner aud with the
crude methods of pioneer days. The
top dirt is light and shallow, and the

this loss of dignity, one of the young

scholarly and honorably ambitious
Yale graduate to whom bas been in

aggressive firmness with the most
elaborate courtesy. Provoked as he

assaults of administration Senators,
at war as he has been with a majori

chamber, subject to criticism as he
has been by Mr. Voorhees and other
veteran Senators on account of his
youth and inexperience, Mr. Dubois
has acquitted himself with an energy
and tact which have both surprised
and gratified his loyal followers. Mr.
Dubois is not only one of the most
popular, but one of the most highly
respected members of the Senate
among his colleagues, despite bis

The rapid shifting by the winds of
beds of sands, often destroying or
menacing human works, is a pbeoom
enon well known in different parts of
the world. But the slow accumula

only in recent years. Most ruins of
ancient cities are buried, and it has
now been learned that tbe covering
is not wholly ibe debris of decayed
buildings and other work», bot that
much of it is atmospheric dust. Tbe
layer that becomes visible today on
a polished surface, if undisturbed,
may grow into a deep stratum iu the
