In the Northern Idahi Nsws of last week there appeared the follow i is» editorial comment: "Word whs received this week from Senator W. B. Heyburn that the aiqxiintnu-nt oT Thomas A, Murray of this city as Supervisor©!: the Priest Hiver Forest Reserve to succeed Robert Bragaw had been turned down on account of an affidavit having been tiled at the Department by C. L. Heilman of Rath drum, in which it is affirmed that Murray was not an able bodied man." It seems that the News was mis informed ou ' the subject as the following telegrams would seem to indicate. The attention of Mr. Heil man having been called to the matter he wired Senatoi Heyburn as follows: Rathdrum, Idaho, Dec, 21, tiKM. Hon. W, B. Heyburn. United States Senate, Washington, D. C. The Sandpolnt News publishes editorially the following; "Word was received this week from Senator W. B. Heyburn that the appoint ment of Thomas A. Murray of tills city as Supervisor of the Priest River Forest Reserve to succeed Robert Bragaw had been turned down on account of an affidavit having been tiled at the Department by C. L. Heilman of Bath drum, in which it is affirmed that Murray was not an able bodied man." Please advise me by wire about this matter. I made no affida vit against Murray. Cham. L. Hkitman. Senator Heyburn replied as fol lows: Wasliington, D. C., Dec. 22, 1904. Chus. !.. Heitman, Ruthdrum, Idaho. Absolutely no truth in editorial referred to in your telegram. Naver heard of your filing or making affidavit or any statement in regard to Murray und have nude no statement my self on the subject. No one has been turned down in the matter. President has Placed foiest reserves in classified service and vac ancies will be tilled by promotion. it is merely change in policy of government of general application. W. B. HEYBURN. The Northern Idaho News wan misinformed and we have no doubt but that it will latte the tirsl opportunity to make a suitable conectiun and set Chairman Heit. man right betöre its readers.

They were accompanied to the train by many of tneir intimate friends who showered them with rice* and otnsr tokens of good luck, and ot course some practical j ikes Had to he perpetrated. One of these was for some of Mr. McG reevey's friends to sinae off a lot of circulars like the following on a typewriter and distribute them on tne train : "This is a newly married n uphi. Don't mind if they du ail a little queer. I'leuse turn your head the other way so as to not bother them, as the groom, Mr. MeUreevey, is a very bashful young man and his friends at Bonners Ferry would dislike very much to have him annoyed or troubled on his wedding trip. You will know him by tu» blueovei coat and stiff hut. I'leuse, be very kind to them, for Jim is very basiiful."
