THE CALDWELL TRIBUNE.
TV. J. CUDDY, Editor und Proprietor.
IDAHO.
CALDWELL
CALDWELL.
CALDWELL, by virtue of its unc
qualed location with reference to the
great fanning, stock growing and lum
bering districts of Idaho and Eastern
Oregon, is destined to be the commercial
center of all the vast region betivecn Salt
Lake and Portland.
Caldwell is situated in the heart of the
most populous and wealthy valley in
Idaho, with other settled valleys near anil
with such an immense scope of arable
land adjacent yet to be lohen to insure on
agricultural merit alone a city within
five years of ten thousand souls.
As the mines of Colorado arc tributary
to Denver and those of Utah to Salt Lake,
so will those of the middle northwest be
tributary to Caldwell, because geography
and rail and wagon routes are with us.
Caldwell is beautiful for situation,
possesses one of the best climates in the
world, the right kind of people to insure
the fostering of inslilulioes and enter
prises which arc calculated to make life
worth living for—hence will be an at
tractive home.
Wc are here because we believe all the
above and wc want thousands of others
to come and share with us the inevitable
fruits of a ' good, earnest fight for the
development of Idaho and the commer
cial, social and political supremacy oj
Caldwell.
WILL IT PAY HIM TO COMEŸ
The Caldwell Tribune is in re
ceipt of numerous letters—from car
penters, mostly—asking if it will pay to
come here. To all such we answer,
"Yes, under certain conditions." If a
man comes here to work, and goes to
work, he will get along,
have to work any harder here than in
the east, and instead of the two dollars
or thereabouts a day that he gets there,
he will here git twice that. So with
bricklayers, only much more so. But
we wou'd not a v.so tham to come just
now. Caldwell is taking a slight rest,
getting her secord wind for the soring
j imp, and while there is work enough
for the mechanics here, and a large
He will not
number of buildings are under con
struction, there fs not work for the
hordes who stand ready to come at the
word. It is our desire to be honest ia
this matter; we are booming Caldwell,
but we are doing it honestly. This is
to be a large city, and its growth will
be steady and rapid. It is situated in
the heart of the finest agricultural sec
tion i f Idaho. It is not dependent
upon any mines or mining excitement
for support It has the solid backing
that a farming country gives its town.
It will intime give employment to men
of all trades and it will be a city ol
many industries. But that time has not
yet arrived. When it does, Caldwell
will gladly welcome every man seeking
a home and a market for his labor.
Many will como right away, despite
anything we can fay. If they can
stand it, we can. Bat one piece of ad
vice they should heed Don't get hero
"broke.
If yon cannot bring enough
money to carry you back or take you
further on, in case you are disappoint
ed, you had much better start in anoth
er direction.
Caldwell will to-morrow lose a citi
zeu whom all of us will bo sorry to see
go. We refer to Mr. Chas. K. Taj lor,
the young gentleman who has been sta
tion agent of the O egon Snort Line'
sime the dspot was established.
It is
. needless to say M . Taylor was a popu
lar agent; the regret over his departure
shows it. He is a man who cannot help
making friends for himstlf and the
road; accommodating in the extreme to
Lis patrons and always pleasant to his
tu tordinaies, he takes with him the
tost wishes of all.

TRIBUNE "CHIN.
The Tribüne received a call the oth
er day from Mr. H. C. R'ggs, Jr.,
companied by Mr. Kibbe. Young Mr.
Riggs was in the city en route to Jor
dan Valley, Oregon. This is the sec
ond member of the Riggs family The
Tribüne has met—father and son—and
we are glad to know we are living in
country that contains such men.
A man who knows what he is talking
about was discussing Caldwell pros
pects with us the other day and among
other things he repeated the remark
a Boise lawyer: "If the Hanked thing
isn't stopped soon, they'll have a coun
ty seat down there in less than three
years." If that's the way they're be
ginning to feel about it we may as well
be truthful and acknowledge we are
not figuring on county seats (yet).
Reading the editorial on the Caldwell
bridge and The Caldwell Tribune in
last Saturday's Statesman, reminds us
that the half-witted boy v\ho used to
turn the press has been promoted to an
editorial petition. That was one cf his
efl usions.
We believe Caldwell will be the end
of a givision of the Oregon Short Liue.
From Shoshone to Caldwell is a fair
run; so, too, is the distance from Cald
well to Huntington. Mcdbury, we do
not believe will be a division station; a
small round-house may be built there
to accommodate the few helping loco
motives necessary to get trains out of
the hole. Pjca.elio, Shoshone and
Caidwell are just about far enough
apart. Weiser will bo a pretty fair
s zed way station, and that is about all.
Of all the towns along the Oregon Short
Line, there is but one that has any nat
ural advantages to make it a large city
and that one is Caldwell. We are con
tent to wait and let things develop.
Caldwell has nothing to fear from
Weiser. Neither from Boise. Like a
rose between two thorns she will blos
som.
The railroad boys who leave us are
going from an orderly town to a place
that has not the most desirable reputa
tion But we have no fears for them.
There isn't one cf them that cannot
keep his end up in great shape. Good
luck to them. ,
About this time of year, as the al
manacs say, our agricultural friends
who do not grow their own seed are
anxious to get the best. There is a re

A.\ OUTFIT FOIt IDAHO.
Under the above heading the Print
ers' Auxiliary has the following to say
of our new job printing outfit, which
ought to bo along before many weeks:
W. J. Cud Jy, whom the Omaha
Western Newspaper Union outfitted

a new quarto "Standard" job press.
manuf ictured at Cleveland, Ohio, and
for wnich the Western Newspaper

west of Mi .souri river. This, in add
i°? tJ 1 ,' l)oral s l'PP 3 y latest
styles of job typo wi;1 enable Mr. C. to
compete with, if he does not surpass,
'l other printing outfits in the territory
Idaho. It may be said hero of the
Standard" press that no other print
machine of its character and capac
is manufactured. Strongly built, j

Mr. Cuddy takes the first press of the
"Standard" pattern to the territory
Idaho, and with such a machine he
assured of being able to not only
good work but a great deal of it in
limited time.

that everybody tlseps too late. When
the division machine snops are running
