P 1 Bonners Ferry, Idaho I < a .y v. «ï .•1 BONNERS FERRY WILL CELEBRATE T A Movement is Started for a Big Celebration Here on July 4th. Bonners Ferry will celebrate the 4th. This conclusion was arrived at last Monday at a meeting of citizens to consider the subjest. It was decided to have a good old fashioned ce'ebratioo, with parade speaking, music, sports, and in fact everything that goes with a good, old-fashioned celebration. Geo. H. \lber« was selected as chairman of the meeting and was also made chairman of the com mittee on arrangements. The following finance committee was selected: G. H. Albert, ex officio chairman, A. C. Moore and T. W. McLaughlin. This commit tee has already secured the pledge of something like $200 to defray expenses. The executive committee is com posed of the following: G. H. Al bert, exofticij chairman, Wm. Van Gasksn, Fred Moore, Herman Sal IDAHO DEMOCRATS . • ARl FOR HEARS! With Strong Anti-Mormon Planks for a Local, State Issue. The Democracy of Idaho held their state convention at Weiser last Monday, Senator Dubois wis in complete control on essential points, and the Steunenberg faction was not in it, the ex governor not being included in the list of nation al delegates. The great fight of the convention was over the Mormpn question, Strong anti Mormon resolutions were adopted by a decisive vole, 215 to 76. The vote was preceded by a long, acrimonious debate, how | ever, in which the delegates from l the Mormon counties accused the anti-Mormons of helping their political prospects at the expense of the Democrats in the Mormon counties. It was plainly intimated J, by the Mormon delegates that the 1 resolutions could be adopted only at the loss of democratic votes. lis plain, however, that Dubais not caring much about this year's results. He is looking ahead two I years when his terra as senator ex I pires. In the natural course I events he is sure to be succeeded by a Republican, but if he can gel Ruick is Named. M. M, Ruick, E->q„ of Boise, has been recimmended by Senator Hey burn to succeed the late R. V Cozier as U. S. district attorney for the state of Idaho. The sudden death of "Bob" C<>z ier came as a great shock to his friends all over the etate. He had barely reached the prime of lile. scheider, T. H. Waldron, Jack Fletcher and S. D. Taylor. J. F. Cook, Jr. Was elected treasurer. J. H. Shavaleai, John E. Tracy and J. E. Dolan were appointed a committee on transportation. Another meeting will be held on Ï riday evening to receive the re port of the finance committee and take further action. Now let every citizen lend a help ing hand and let us have the big gest celebration Bonners Ferry ever had. The town has not undertaken to spread itself on a a 4th of July celebration since 1892, and it was a hummer Jthal year. There are many times the number of people in the country now than there were at that time, and it is reasonable to anticipate a grand time if the matter is taken hold of right. Bonners Ferrv! July 4th, 1904! Let 'er boom! ( the politics of the state into a jum ble on the anli-Murmon issue, he might find an opening. It's a slim chance, but a slim chance is better than no chance at all, in the logic of the Senator. The delegates to the national convention were elected by the con vention es a whole, and not by judicial districts, necessary move that Senator Du : bois might be elected. Dubois lives in a Mormon district, and the Jis uict was against him. The deL gates elected were; Senator Du trois. Ex-Senutoi Heitfeld, Ex Guv 'ernor Hunt, W. W. Woods. Tim Regai. mid W. W. Ballen tin ». State Chairman S. P. Donnelly was named for national committee man. John B. Goode of Coeur d'Alene, was temporary chairman and Jas. H. Hawley of Boise, permanent chairman. The delegates were instructed for Hearst for president. Democratic sentiment seemed point to the nomination of Ex Senator Heitftl fur governor at the nominating convention. This was New Lodge Officers In addition to the elections noted in the last issue of the Herald, the following are to be reported: I. O. O. V. ENCAMPMENT. P. C. P — W. H. Emery. C. P.— L. H. Medbury. 8. W.—Char. McCauley. J W —J. H. Hoagland. Scribe.— W. S. Curtice. Treasurer.—Wm. VanGasken. Big Republican Majority Oregon held her state election last Monday. The returns show that the Republicans carried the state by over 20,000 majority. Hermann's majority for congress is over 7,000 aud Wilkinson's over 13,000. The result in Oregon shows that Republican sentiment is still growing and tends to con firm the belief that President Rosse veL will be reelected by an overwhelming majority. Bear Hunters H, M. Boruff, who has been out with the boundary Une surveyors, came in this week from the vicinity of Round Prairie, the engineers having completed their work in that locality. He brings in the report that George Fry and pard ner are having great luck hunting bear in that region, having killed 14 up to the time he left. Among the number were two browns, one silver tip and one g-izzly. The locality mentioned is twenty five or thirty miles from Bonners Ferry , A Record that Bears Inspection. Sheriff Whitney came over on Wednesday on business, in connec tion with some license money. It seems that one of the local liquor dealers in remitting for his license had sent in an order for some as signed warrants to be applied on the amount. The clerk of the board, through an oversight, drew the warrants in favor of the indi viduals, ind it was necessary to cure the individual endorsements in order to draw the money and make the deposit for the license. Ihis also accounts for the delay in receiving the money from the li cense in the town treasury, con cerning which there has been some anxious inquiries. Sheriff Whit ney has made a fine record in the collection of licenses and the prompt deposit of the funds. Tiie Herald will publish the figures later. .-e Farmers' Institute. A.
