He says that, be ond a doubt, the Board will take eps to complete the road from Chal 1 to Salmon City and from Yankee fork to Stanley Basin this winter; p 80 the Elk City branch.

He Arrived here in the early days. S'roin this place he went to Custer Bounty and a few years ago returned knd worked in Banner and other pamps of this county. Mr. Winder poffe worked for a number of years In the Comstock mine during its palmy nays. Of late years Fred acquired an Uncontrollable appetite for strong [liquors. Notwithstanding his weak ness in that direction, he was a man »ho strove to do what was right. «'mil the to was The now out tion per is in of iB to in at COMMITTEE MEETING, a ac at be Col. He years an man «'mil tor a Urning „r the Peeples' I'nrtr 4 'entrai «ummittee The Slate Central Committee of the People's party ia summoned to meet at Boise City on November 20tb, to denounce the crime of the age and organize for future action. The speoial session of Congress has adjourned. The object for which it was convened has been accomplished. The last legal prop has been taken from silver. Its further coinage is now prohibited, and when the present limited amount in circulation ia worn out through abrasion or other causes, silver will cease to be recognized as money. The circulating medium of the na tion is contracted at least thirty-five per oent. A metal that supplies about one-half the money of the world is demonetized. The consummation of this great crime will be felt with peculiar force in this State. An industry that con stitutes the only source of revenue in many counties, that materially affects every county, is now threatened with destruction. Poverty, created by aot of Congress, is the condition, not the theory, that confronts us as a stern reality. The effect of the recent legislation iB felt beyond the borders of this State. It reaches to every State, and to every commercial center, not only in this country but in the civilized world. This outrage, this orime against humanity, has been perpe trated to satisfy the rapacious and unrelenting demands of the money power, and a foreign money power at that. It is a surrender of our in dividuality, an abasement of our in dependence, both degrading and hu miliating. We are face to face with the most momentous crisis ia the his tory of the nation. Shall the money power, under foreign domination, rule the republic? Or shall freemen still sway the destinies of the nation? This dangerous and degrading condi tion has been brought about by a combination of the Democratic and Republican parties on behalf of for eign influences, and against American interests. It is incumbent on us to meet, and condemn the treason that has just bound us hand and foot and delivered us to the enemy. Our duty is apparent. We must organize for our own protection and for future aggressive action. The gauge of battle has been thrown down. None but cowards will hesi tate to take it up. Let us meet, and hurl our defiance at the foe! Say to them that the challenge is accepted, and the battle for American homes, for our firesides, for the preservation of republican institutions will now be fought to a finish. When we are through with this struggle we will know positively whether we have surrendered to the Europeans or whether the American still rules. Therefore, in view of the duty de volving on us, a meeting of the State Central Committee of the Peoples' Party will be held in Boise, com mencing at 2 p. at., Monday, Nov. 20, 1893, for the purpose of express ing our disapproval of the recent hos tile attitude of the national Congress towards silver, and to prepare for a thorough organization of all bimetal lists in the State. In new comities in which the Peoples' party has not perfected its organization, the bimet allists and all those who are opposed to the reoent base surrender of the Democrats and Republicans, are ear nestly requested to co-operate and send a delegate to represent them. A representative is wanted from ev ery county in the State. If circum stances should render it impossible for the member of the committee from any county to attend, measures should be taken to select a well known Populist in his stead, it being the urgent desire to have every coun ty represented. D. L. BADLEY, Chairman. James Gunn, Secretary. of are all The him at was sold of of and but less the be to a Thr steamer "State of Idaho," running between Bonner's Ferry, this State, and Kaslo, B. C., sank near Ainsworth on the 11th, having collided with a rock. The passen gers were all saved. The cost of the steamer was $23,000. Mrs. Walter Wolvrrton went dowu to Boise Saturday. RKSILTS OF TUB HARO TIM El. As an illustration of the sad results of the money famine a few instances are given below: A merchant in Colfax, Washington, forced a poor farmer to turn over to him, for debt, all the wheat he bad threshed. By doing so he robbed bis own family. The merchant then refused to oredit him for a sack of flour. A livery stock, in Moscow, this State, valued at $1,400, and mortgaged for #180, was bid in for the face of the mort gage. Some shylook got $1,400 for #180. Fifteen head of horses were sold recently in Walla Walla for 75 cents each. These are only samples of thousands upon thousands of cases of the same kind. There ia not gold and silver money enough in the whole world for the United States alone, but notwithstanding this faot the money sharks keep on howling for less so that their robberies can be in creased. With free and nnlimited coinage of silver and all the silver of the world "dumped upon us," which, however, it would not be, we would be short of what our necessities de mand. Notwithstanding the plain facts connected with this money question, simple minded fools are met with who are being ruthlessly robbed and are struggling on the verge of starvation, and these same fools, par rot-fashion, are heard re-echoeing the cry of the contractionists. Will these leeches ever be satisfied before the last drop of blood is sucked? When they get the last drop will they not then insolently demand that the re mains of the people be turned over to them to be used as fertilizers for the land they will have monopolized? Will the people submit to wholesale robbery much longer without fight ing? Truly Americans are a patient and long-suffering people. They see the products of their toil and their liberties slipping away from them and while they starve, millionaires are stacking up unearned wealth like cordwood, and shouting that a dollar a day is enough for the laboring man This is a pretty state of affairs, with no opportunity for labor, even at dollar a day, confronting more than one-half the people, and thousands of dollars' worth of the little earnings of the producers going from their grasp to satisfy mortgages calling for only hundred. Ten dollars' worth of their household goods and lands going for one dollar of debts, and no opportu nities left for acquiring, in future, even the absolute necessities of life! A beautiful picture to contemplate in this land—once "the land of the free and the home of the brave," He who hints at the existence of such a deplorable state of affairs and sug gests a remedy and a return to pros perous conditions that heretofore ex isted, is branded by the shylocks as "a calamity howler.'' This is done with the hope of silencing an expres sion of his woes. If the sharks and shylocks think they can silence the advocates of the true remedy for hard times—the free and unlimited coinage of silver—by whooping "calamity howlers," they are deceiving them selves. Lone Valley Item*. Van Wyck, Nov. 5, 1893. El>. World: —The grass is finer this fall than it has been for years. Although much hay was damaged du ring the recent rains there will be plenty to winter all the stock left in the valley. More beef cattle were driven from Long valley this fall than ever be fore. Mr. Troch, of Lardo, has opened a branch store at Van Wyck and put in a good stock of general merchan dise. John Knox has charge of it. Mr. Prunty, of Clear creek, has opened a store in that locality and is now prepared to furnish anything you want from a paper of pins to a pound of tea. Dr. D. Smith, who has been doing dental work here the past two months, has taken his departure for Emmett where be expects to spend the win ter. Geese and ducks are more plenti ful than usual at this time of year. The river is very high and the quicksand along its bed is deeper than common. Eugene Lortoh's paper, the Em mett Index, has made its appearance, and a bright, sprightly paper it is, too. The World wishes the Index unbounded success. er it The He sal up. Idee tile« as Theae af Fred WladerheFe. DEAD MOOT IT KITE» as be in a has is a the Em is, gtetouuc, FtUe/. It was reported to Offioer Shell worth yesterday that a human body was lying in the river about half s mile below the Eighth Street bridge. In aompany with Undertaker Glov er be went to the river and located the body. They attached a rope to it and drew it to the shore. Officer Roy identified the body as that of Fred Winderhoff, a miner, about 50 years of age, who came to Boise from Nea) district about three weeks ago. He was originally from Custer county and haa been a familiar fignre on the streets here for several years past, The body was interred in Morris Hill cemetery yesterday afternoon. At tbe Coroner's inquest held be fore Justice Clark in the absence of Coroner Brierly, it was shown Win derhoffe came from Neal about three weeks ago with about $300 in money which he soon spent A few days before he disappeared he saw an old camp friend of his named Comanche Bill, to whom he offered his pocket knife, saying it was all he bad left, and that be wanted him to keep it as he was going to kill Ibimsalf. K. F. Plowman, for whom Winder boff has worked off and on for a year or so, told Officer Shellworth that he bad often heard him say be would kill himself if he went broke. When notified that Winderhoffe had disap peared Officer Shellworth went sev eral times up and down tbe river but could find no trace of biro. Last Monday tome boys who were hunting along the river told Mr. Wiebelhouse, who lives near the riv er, that they saw something that looked like a human body in the riv er. He immediately went to the spot indicated, found the body and informed the officer. Tbe Coroner's jury returned a ver dict to the effect that deceased came to bis death from drowning, probably by his own hand. From W. J. Beard, who knows the deceased well, it is learned that some few years ago he was worth #30,000, and he was among the best practical miners on the coast. He owned some good mining property near De La mar. He has no relatives in this part of the country. The G. A. R. of Boise, and tbe Statesman, are making war on the Ellis history of the United States, used in the Boise public schools. The reasons given are that it treats seces sion in too mild a manner, extols the bravery of tbe Confederates too high ly, is not sufficiently complimentary to the defenders of the Union, and many statements in regard to the great "unpleasantness" have not the merit of truthfulness, and as a whole it does not teach that patriotism and reverence for " the flag of our Union " which should be instilled into tbe minds of the young generation. An Idaho farmer sat down tbe other dav and figurad out what could be made out of a bushel of corn and here is the verdict: " A bushel of corn can be made to produce four gallons of whisky which, when ripe by the rapid process, will sell for #4 per gallon, amounting to $16 for four gallons. Of this #16 the farmer gets 25 cents, the government gets $2, the manufacturer gets $4^he| und oar been tbe Yes, bone the ed their ty gion road been of er it on it a ly of of a vender gets #6.25, the user gets the devil, and the producer and tax payer foot the bill.—Nampa Leader. The Silver-Messenger gets off the following. Young ladies, does it tell tbe truth? " A young lady of Cballis wants to know how to make "not enough " out of the word "enough." That is easy. It is done by trans posing the letters and arranging them into two words. Take tlie third, sec ond and first letters of this word, "enough," for the first word, and the sixth, fourth and fifth letters for the second word, and you have something that is " not enough" for any young lady." _ ^ S. C. Bowen and John T. Hey ar rived here last Saturday from London. Mr. Hey has copie to examine the mining ground on Grimes creek, owned by Bowen and Goldtrap, with a view of patting in a bedrock flume. Another Londoner will arrive soon, who will also make an examination of the ground. OVFEIp Tiumun PB 11 Ola Y LAID. " of Jerusalem, Nov. 8, *93. Lift up yoar beads, desponding freemen; shout aloud all ye lends und join ue in oar songs of joy, for oar deliverance bas come. We have been delivered from tbe yoke that gelled. The burden waa heavy end tbe yoke herd. It galled oar necks. Yes, it hed worn down to the very bone end soon it would have been to the marrow. The Jérusalem end Boise Basin wagon road was accept ed by tbe County Commissioners et their last meeting, making it a coun ty road. Now tbe inter-mountain re gion bes connection with the ootaide world by a free road—free to all withont regard to race, color, or pre vious condition of servitade. Tbe road is worn down quite smooth el reedy. Citizens of several of the different oounties of the State have been over it with teams end numbers of them speak well of it. It is ■ good average mountain road, with no very steep grades as there ere on most mountain roads. There are some long, heavy pulls, but the grade i* very evenly distributed. There ere none of the so-called bedrock pitches, neither is there a rod of canyon prop er on the entire road, and with the exception of one place there is no ev idence of there ever having been a snow slide. The slide was a small one, just below Independence Rock, which rock was named by the writer years ago. Timber has grown up since the slide, which is evidence that it occurred many years ago, and that slides there are not an every year oc currence. The facilities for camping on the road are good; plenty of wood, water and grass. The writer and a number of others objected to tbe building of a part of the road where it has been built. That especial part sboald have been constructed on tbe survey; but wo had to submit to the powers that be, although we did so protesting. Tbe building of the road has been a big undertaking for Je rusalem and has been very heavy on a few, notwithstanding we reoeived a great deal of help from people near ly all over the county, to say nothing of the appropriation from the county. But for this outside help we never could have accomplished the work. Even the business men of Boise City lent us a helping hand to the extent of $150, and that, too, during the first year, when we were sorely in need of funds. Never will the writer forget the night when a full load for a big span of horses drove into camp with a new road plow, steel scraper, tools, &c., and the balance of the load in grub—all Boise City's donation. The whole camp jumped out of bed, cheer ing. You see we were troubled with the "shorts" about that time. After that the people "pungled up" better and there was no scarcity of grub and tools that year, for all of which the people here feel very grateful, and they will not forget that "one good turn deserves another." Rigged Countryman. trap, the rare tate yon he a an tbe to. of Report is brought the Citizen of the most vivid imagination of which we have ever heard. A young man of Indian valley was coming from the mountains with a load. Upon a sid ling place the wagon upset, break ing the coupling. With muoh pain and difficulty the young man crawled across the front bolster and drove down to John Jackson's. Jackson gd, Barber came along and Jackson t0 |d hjm tie wanted some one to go £ or t [j e y 0un g man's father. Barber seeing him prone upon the holster ran out and inquired what the matter was. Tbe young man told him he bad upset his wagon and broken his leg above the knee and he believed below the knee also. Jackson took him upon his back and carried him into the house, and very carefully straightened the leg out. Just then the the ar the with ran his horse to Lindsay's and got one of his boys to go. The father came as soon as possible, but the leg was so thoroughly healed by tbe time he got there it did not show any signs of having been so much is bruised. Imagination is a good thing, but when it gives a man all the pain of a broken leg it is time to curb it. Rev. R. B. Wright, of Boise, will hold services here next Monday even ing- _ _ _ . Rev.
