Former Governor Frank Steunenberg Meets
Death by Bomb Explosion.
Idaho, instead of waving out,
with a merry farewell, the year
just closed, bows down her head in
grief and indignation. In one
home, especially, naught but sor

No particulars of the trouble

that it was not over a game of
cards, as had been reported.

The concert at the opera house on
the night of Dec. 27, under the
auspices, and for the benefit, of the
Mountain Home Band, was a suc
cess both as to financial results
and pleasing program. One of
those in attendance—whose name
is familiar to the public—pro
nounced it one of the best enter
tainments given in Mountain
Home in many months.
The rapid advancement recently
made by the members of the band
is both surprising and gratifying,
and should encourage all public
spirited citizens to continue, and
increase, their support, financially
and morally.

Mountain Home's Big Hotel Under
New Management.
The Turner House begins the year
1906 under new management, the
present proprietor being a recent
arrival in Mountain Home. The
change occurred last 'Saturday,
December 30,1905, when the trans
fer papers were made out.
The documents in the case show
that John II. Garrett conveys to
W. H. Dudley his entire in

time ago changes occurred in con

withdrew he disposed of his inter

During the management of J. L.
Bradford & Co. Mr. Couvrett, who
had charge of the hotel bar, pur
chased that department of the ho
tel, with the proviso that, in case
of subsequent sale to other parties,
the bar being included in the
transfer, the purchase price was
to be returned to him.
The management thus being in
the hands of Mr. Garrett, he trans
ferred all interests of the business
to Mr. Dudley, who came here
from North Dakota. Although
having been a resident of Moun
tain Home only a short time, the
new proprietor, on account of his
affable, genial nature, has already
made many friends, who wish
him the greatest success.
