IDAHO.
CALDWELL,
CALDWELL, by virtue of its une
.qualcd location with reference to the
great farming, stock growing and him
bering districts of Idaho and Eastern
Oregon, is destined to be the commercial
center of all the vast region between Salt
hake and Portland.
Caldwell is situated in the heart of the
most populous and wealthy valley in
Idaho, with other settled valleys near and
with such an immense scope of arable
land adjacent yet to be tahen 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 hake,
so will those of the middle northwest be
tributary to Caldtvell, because geography
and rail and wagon routes are with us.

MURK COMPLIMENTS TO BOISE.

ot the Democrat contained the following
from Dixie Valley, dated January 28;

TUE INJUNCTION CASE .
Editor Caldwell Tribune: We see
by the Boise City pnpers that James
Lawrence and O. P. Johnson have
served an injunction on the city author
ises of Boise City, restraining them
from collecting the special tax levii d to
pay for the Ri lenbaugh bridge Brave
and noble Romans they are! We had
thought that no Beiseite dare resist the
ring, they have domineered over the
people so long. The people of Boise
City wore to be taxed to the tune of five
thousand dollars without the shadow of
law to justify it, in order to make A-,'a
county a present of an old, rotten bulk
of a bridge that the people of Ada coun
ty would spurn to accept. But the law
less extravagance of the ring did not
commence here, but long since they
outstripped the charter limits of their
indebtedness by allowing auch unlaw
ful bills as the following:
JuneSOtb, 1882—Bill No. 217, for
surveying a railroad by Boise
City
Nov. —, 1888—To pay Joe Houston

business, bill No 260.
We are in possession of other work ot

ask a relief bill of the next legisla
ture * or tbe bv6 thousand d 1 ars

upon Ada county. This view of the

T. T. Danilson, superintendent

yesterdav to secure painters and paper
hangers from this place. He reports
that he is working twenty-five men on
the hotel. The partitions and inside
walls are now ready for the paper
hangers. The iron roofing is now go

be completed by Monday, when Mr.
Danilson will throw bis entire force on
the inside of the building and expects
to have it completed by Saturday night.
Con ilering the size, it will be pretty
quick work, being about thirteen days

Danilson did not have time to give us a
description of the building throughout.
The whole of the second and third
stories are taken for sleeping rooms;

on the corner, the veranda is on both
streets, 85 feet front and 80 feet on the

Mr. Danilson has also erected a fine
store building for his firm (T. Ï. Danil
son & Ce.) on the next corner from the
hotel. Mr. Seaton is in charge of the
store, and began selling goods Thurs
day evening.
Danilson reports times lively and
the hotel badly needed, as people now
have to go to the old settlement, two
miles away, to get hotel accommoda

The Philadelphia Times, 1884.
The Times will enter upon the
year stronger and more prosperous
than ever before in its history—more
widely road and quoted, more heartily
commended, and more fiercely criticiz
ed, with a more complete organizaiion,
ami an abler staff of contributors—and
with the same independence and fear
lessness that has made it successful and
powerinl in the past.
The Times has no party to follow, no
candidates to advance, hut will meet
every issue, as it has ever done, with
consistent devotion to the ri^ht, to
honest gov.rnmenf, and the public wel
fare. And, while maintaining its posi
ou as the leading journal of Philsde -
phi», it will aim to be continually in
advance in all that can add value
a newspaper. The value of a news
paper is not in its size or display, but
the intelligence and care, the
ciseness and freshness with which It is
editea. The
new
con
news from all parts of the world, but
«11 its dispatches are carefully edited
acd condensed, in order to give the
oomp ete news of the day in tne most
concise and attractive shape, and with
it a large variaty of entertaining and
instruciive reading. The best writers
at homo and abroad are employed
to enrich i s columns, and to make it a
journal auapt, d both to the busy men
and to the leisure of the home circle,
welcome visitor to intelligent and hon
est citizens of every political, religious,
and sou »1 taste.
Tçe Weekly Times is altogether
different from the weekly newspapers
of twenty 3ears ago. The day of those
papers is gone by. The telegraph and
better local newspapers every where, es
pecially in the thriving centres of rural
population, have made the ell weekly
metropolitan newspaper unsatisfy lag.
Those that clung to their ancient us
ages have lost their hold on our for
ward-moving people; they are but
shadows of their former greatness, and
they have but a shadow of their former
power. Tho-e papers have had their
usefulness, but it is gone; and, with it,
they are going, too It was not the fault
of the papers; it was the improvement
of the country that brought about the
caango. Men and women, wherever
they live, now require fresher news;
and thev req- ire more than nows.
T he Weekly T imes gathers off the
types ot every passing week whatever
kas lasting i Merest to people at large,
and seis it before them in such
osity of paper and print as would"have
astonished us all twenty years ago.
Daily—T welve cents a week, fifty
cents a month, $6 a year, two cents a
copy.
Sunday—F our cents a copy, $2 a
year.
WEEKi^r—One copy, $2 a year; five
copies, $8 a year; ten copies, $15 a
