Pollllca Kater tire Road CobbImI«. era Meeting. Ntatf'vmud, Wrdnaadaj. The State wagon road commission yesterday, after a lengthy session, during which there were several breezy passages between Chairman Sharp and Commissioner Maonab, adopted a report to be submitted to the Governor. * The report, as a whole, is tole'rably clear and oonoise, consisting mainly of a review of the past work of the commission, bat in one place it branches off from the routine and, for nearly three pages, arraigns in strong terms the present administration at Washington. Right there Commissioner Mecntb, who is a staunch Democrat, took issue with the author of the report. Secre tary Bell. He said such matter had no bearing on a report of the pro ceedings of the commission and be moved to strike it out root and branch Chairman Sharp, who is s confirmed Populist, said the report, especially that portion of it that hit President Cleveland, suited him exectly. "As to the bearing on the subject," he ■aid, "it comes io nicely. The report apeaks of the trouble experienced in floating the wagon road bonds even after they were contracted for. The financial stringency, it says, rendered Stanton & Coffin unable to take them as agreed. Who oaused the string ency, hey? Tell me that. Why, it was the administration. Give it to 'em, I say, give it to 'em," and he oombed his iron gray whiskers with the butt end of a cigar. Commissioner Macnab won bis point, however, when the vote was taken. Chairman Sharp winked the other eye and changed his vote to the affir inative. The noon recesa followed Then the chairman made his point. Shortly after reconvening in the afternoon he moved to reconsider There was another wrangle. The at mosphere of the senate chamber was charged with red bot, sizzling Eng lish; but this time when the vote was taken Chairman Sharp, with "a smi) that was childlike and bland," came out ahead, and the administration from Cleveland down was roasted. The report gives the classification of the 1135,000 appropriation as fol lows; a For construction of the ro*d .............. $1.15,000 For exiieuses of Commissioners............... 6,000 Fir engineers.......... ................... 12,000 For examiner ............................ *$*9 For Secretary..... ....... ................ It then gives the expenses of the Commission up to Nov. 1st as follows For Commissioners............... $3.450 75 For engineers.... ....................... •••«• 8.300 21 For Secretary............ 62 50 For printing bonds............... 635 latal...... $12,648 22 This amount taken from the $20. 000 received from the first issue of bonds leaves a balance now in the treasury of $7,451.78. In speaking of the Governor's in terest in the proposed road, the re port says: "The earnest efforts of Governor McConnell at all times to remove financial obstacles from the path of the Commissioners has not only ma terially assisted the Commission in its labors but has also impressed up on the minds of the members the fact that he is desirous that every county interested should reap the full bene fits arising from tbe construction of the road and the advantages incident to the increased facilities of transpor tation afforded." Hon. A. A. Crane, of Harrison, presented credentials entitling him to represent the people of Kootenai county in the Commission, vice Com missioner Sanburn, absent. There was some defeot in the credentials, however, and the Commission gave Mr. Crane a bob-tailed permission to deliberate with them. He could talk and propose motions, but could not vote. Mr. Crane accepted these con ditions and, although handicapped, he made himself felt quite frequently during the dsy. The Commissioners expect at to day's meeting to settle the matter of advertising for bids. It is held by some that, under the law, the con tracts must be awarded in 1893, or the appropriation will be void. This, with other minor questions, has been submitted to the Attorney General for an opinion. of bird early. he hie not tion will for end, with sire to ion most the with tion. runs □ p rial is are by tbe Rev.

The early bird oatohes tbe worm, and Mc ia ont early. It is tbe fat Senatorial worm he is after. Me talk* irrigation, bnt hie heart and soul and ambition are not so mach centered on that ques tion as on tbe momentous one of who will be Idaho's next Senator. This irrigation talk is employed as a means for the accomplishment of the chief end, and Mo is inseparably connected with that chief end. We do not de sire to be understood es particularly condemning Mc's ambition in the direction of the U. S. Senate, nor any honorable means be may use to get there, and there is nothing very wrong or dishonorable in bis efforts to reach the goal by floating with the stream down the irrigating ditch route. Me has been studying tbe subject carefully, and shrewdly noting which way the stream of public opin ion runs, and he is drifting with it most beautifully and condemning corporation control of water and irri gating ditches. There is no proba bility of our wily Governor being ditched as a result of his position on the subject of irrigation, for be is with public sentiment on the ques tion. It is water on his wheel that runs the machinery that is manufac turing Wm. J. McConnell Senatorial boom material. Me bad his factory □ p and running to its full capacity long before any of tbe other Senato rial aspirants had even as much as begun to revolve, in their minds, the plan of one. As each yard of fabric is turned ont by Mc's factory and held up to the eager gaze of an ad miring multitude, tbe people shout themselves hoarse, and tbe compli ments showered upon the Governor are loud and long. This encourages him to keep the machinery well oiled and in good running order. Me is by no means slow. He is a thorough business man and runs politics on business principles. He is early in tbe field and active, pushing old Procrastination entirely out of tbe way. The State Wagon Road Commis sion will meet again today to open bids and award contracts for the con struction of the various sections of the road. On Wednesday the follow ing question was submitted to the Attorney General: "If no bids are accepted in 1893 and no contracts awarded, does the whole law go by default?" The Attorney General said: "In my opinion Section 10 of the law, di recting the commission to let the con tracts is directory merely. That this is true will plainly appear by reading Section 11 iu connection therewith, said Section authorizing the Board to reject any ami all bids, and to let the same at a subsequent meeting at such time and place as may be determined by the Commis sion. Failure to let tbe contracts in 1893 cannot, in my opinion, render the act referred to inoperative." The Statesman says that there is little doubt some of the sections of the road cannot be built with the ap propriations set aside for them, but it is thought the counties will come and L. and John arty set he a. et the east the of this is on a to the rescue and appropriate suffi cient funds to meet the deficiency. Idaho county has agreed to raise $5,000 for that purpose and it is un derstood Kootenai and Shoshone will do the same. Tbe Statesman might have added that Boise county will also make good any deficiency on the section within her boundaries. Sec retary Hunter will at once re-adver tise for bids. Bellevue Herald: Old Jim Townsend, genial Jim, cheerful Jim, lying Jim, as the boys used to call him, because he could relate more miraculous yarns and make more odd comparisons than any other old "print" on the Comstook thirty years ago, is now publishing the Homer In dex, at Lundy, California. The Her ald publisher used to stiok type along side of Jim at one dollar per thou sand in '63; but the times are harder now, and we are both getting old, and botb bave to struggle harder for a dollar now than we did for ten in those bygone palmy days. We find this pathetic but humorous appeal to his patronB in a late number of Jim's paper: " We will take for dues any thing we oan stick our teeth into, drink, wear or sleep on.

Cœur d'Alene is a city of 1,000 population, beautifully situated on the northern shore of the famous Cœur d'Alene lake, thirty-three mileB east of Spokane, on a branch line of the Northern Pacific railroad. Lines of steamers make regular trips from this city up the lake to the head of navigation on the St. Joe and Cœur d'Alene rivers, connecting at Old Mission with the railroad line into the gold, silver and lead mines. Tbe city is one of tbe most noted summer re sorts in the Northwest, and is becom ing more popular each year. Its fishing, bunting, boating and bathing attractions are almost limitless. The finest U. S. military post in the West (Fort Shermau) and its magnificent forest park reservation adjoin the city on the west. The country round about is made up of rich agricultural lands and extensive forests of yellow pine, fir, cedar and tamarar, and the city is destined to become a manu facturing center for the products of these woods. The business men and residents are enterprising, and take pride iu making the place attractive. There are five church organizations— Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Episcopal and Roman Catholic. The secret orders are well represented by a lodge each of Masons, Odd Fellows, Knights of Pythias, G. A. R., and Women's Relief Corps. The city is supplied with electric lights, good water works, an elegant public school building, sash and door factory, two saw mills, two first class hotels, boat building yards, etc. There are yet good opportunities to engage in lu crative business and in diversified farming. Manufactories are particu larly desired, and are offered extra inducements. The summers are tem perate, with sufficient rainfall to in sure abundant orops, while the win ters are free from extreme cold. No better location for profitable invest meuts or for securing ideal homes can be found in tbe Northwest. There is always a welcome here, among an excellent people, in a beau tiful region and an incomparable cli mate. iBiportant re Miner». An amendment to section 2324, of the Revised Statutes of tbe United States, has been passed by Congress which renders assessment work on mining claims unnecessary for tbe year 1893. Prospectors and mine owners, however, must before the 31st of next December, make affidavit be fore the County Recorder of tbe coun ty in which their claims are recorded, to the effect that they are holding their claims in good faith and intend to work them hereafter. This law applies to all individual and compa ny holders, who reside in the State or iu adjoining States or Territories, but does not affect corporations. It is intended to lessen tbe hardships which would necessarily follow if holders of mining property were com pelled to perform the usual $100 as sessment work on each claim during tbe present state of the mining indus try. The amendment is for 1893 on ly- t Notice te Taxpayers. Notice is hereby given that taxes are now due and payable at this of fice and will become delinquent on the second Monday of December, 1893, and if not paid prior to that date ten per cent will be added there to. C. Baird, Assessor and Tax Collector. Qot. 9, 1893. the the been was gloom of rest we every to was tbe hope be have of not it by can We and lar ily tbe be to as A SLOW AT TRK Wl The New York Recorder publishes the following from tbe pen of Senator Dubois: The fight against tbe passage of the bill for unconditional repeal baa been carried on in plain viaw of the oonntry. Nothing bas been con cealed. There is no " inside " story connected with it, even indirectly. It was begun because we know that the passage of tbe bill unaccompanied by remedial legislation would carry gloom and destitution to tbe people of certain portions of the United Sûtes, and because we believe it would be frought with peril to the rest of the country. Believing this we felt that wc were justified io nslog every parliamentary device et tbe command of a minority in the Senate to delay action and to prevent action altogether if we could. The struggle is now over. The results will show speedily whether it was well considered or not. The act strikes a sudden mud cruel blow at tbe Far West and leaves but little hope for tbe near fntnre. There can be no justification for it unleaa it brings ((real prosperity to tbe wage earners of the East. If those who have urged its passage have done nothing except to add to the wealth of tbe rich they will be called to a fearful reckoning. By tbe passage of this bill tbe country bas entered upon a policy of contraction of tbe currency. It does not seem to me that prosperity can follow such a policy. The next step, it is said, will be to borrow money by issuing gold bonds. That, at best, can only be a temporary palietive. We cannot continue to borrow money and continue to prosper. Every dol lar borrowed must be paid back some time. The people will not be^de ceived by such a device. 1 do not take a gloomy view of the future. The people have voted stead ily for silver and an enlargement of tbe currency. They bave been dis appointed, but they will yet prevail. They understand the issue now and they will make their power felt. If this is to be a fight of the money against the laboring classes and the producers, the producers will ase their sure and only weapon of de fense—the ballot. If the fight shall be distinctively for free coinage, an overwhelming majority will be re turned to both branches of Congress that will not dare disobey the man dates of the people. The fight is only just beginning. In tbe end I am confident there can be only one result. Tbe people will not submit to a contraction in the currency, which has been plainly inaugurated now, and misery will certainly fallow. There is not enough gold to serve as a safe basis for money, and either silver must be added or else irre deemable paper money. The wage earners and producers will insist that there be a sufficient enlargement of the currency to keep pace with our constantly increasing business and population. Those who have advo cated a constant increase of both gold and silver money in this country, where both gold and silver are pro duced, are defeated temporarily, but have no doubt of future triumph. The appeal will now be made di rectly to the people, who, for the first time, understand the attempt is being made to contract a currency, a thing that can bsve only one effect, that of making the rich richer and the poor poorer."

It has been calculated that the heat given off by the sun in a second of time would melt a pillar of ice 1590 square miles at its base and 194,626 miles iu height. If this heat is produced by fuel added from out side of the sun, there must be added every second of time a quantity of fuel capable of melting this enor mous quantity of ioe, and this would require a quantity of coal of almost equal mass. If iron, copper or stones were added, we cannot conceive how this would generate heat, for, if added to terrestrial fires, they absorb heat instead of producing it.
