70h. 16. CALDWELL, IDAHO. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1898. No. 11 öirls— [HE WHITE PINE LAND. Land Boar4 Deprives Settlers of their Homesteads. REPORT OF THE CALDWELL SCHOOL. 'earl Mining District — Checkmate Bein? Floated — Development Work Going 1 On — The Slate Normal at Albion. The Moscow .Star Bays: Last week he State Land Board tiled on about 010 acres of land, mostly in township [ north, rangs 1 west Boise meridian, his land is in the heart of the White 'ine belt in the eastern part of Latah ounty. Probably every quarter sec ion Hied on by the state was occupied oy a settler who was awaiting the time ,o put his own tiling upon the land he ad selected and claimed. As the law ivestlie state a chance to ti'e for a ieriod of (50 days before the settler, and ïs the state has filed, its action makes the settler the contestant, and now we lave the spectacle of fifty or one hun dred settlers banded together to defend heir rights against fie encroachments )f the state. On Monday last a meeting of home iteaders was held in Moscow, at which he situation was fully discussed and ggressive action was decided upon. It vas agreed upon that each settler vould contribute to a fund for the ena loyment of legal counsel to take harge of ' all these cases and carry hem through the local land office, and f need be through the interior depart nent at Washington, and the law firm if Cozier & Pickel were retained to do he work. lit seems that in township 41, 1 w, Barly every homesteader's claim was *d ou by the state. The plat of the ownship showing the vacant land has lot yet been received from the land of ce but a report that the only one who scapes a contest is A. O. Cady, who is lostmaster at Collins. It is said that !. 0. lirown's claim was died on. Mr. Srown's improvements consist of a arge three room cabin, a large barn md other «ut houses. Last summer le raised as much garden truck as nany Palouse farmers, and a crop of 'heat hay upon a tract of meadow and which had been put in cultiva ion. And still the avarlcioas land oard could not discover in these ita rovements any evidence that Mr. irown had ever occupied or claimed his land. The ntore one reflects on Iiis matter the more one is impressed ith the audacity of our land board. CALDWELL SCHOOL.

Mr. Shepherd says the camp is some what dull just now, the weather being anything but favorable for mining, but he expects the spring to find the camp in a flourishing condition. The Chapin people are putting their property on the market and stock is being taken up rapidly. The mine has already proven itself a good one, and much gold will be taken from it. The Dewey property is being developed right along, and $20,000 will be expended next season on further development work. After a little capital has been spent on properties known to be good ones, it is believed the camp will soon forge ahead and be recognized as one of the best in the west. TUE ALBIOI FORMAL.

Boise , Feb. 4.—Judge Beatty this afternoon tendered his decision in the Gillette- Herzog case in favor of the County, sustaining Attorney Rice on every point. WITHOUT FOUNDATION. The Report That Justice Huston Had Died Snddenlj. THE SOLDIERS HOHE HUDDLE. The BnchanAn Company—The Banter That Didn't Hnnt—Washington at the First Inaagnral Ball—Frozen to Death. Wednesday a report was circulated that Justice Huston had died sudden ly at Boise. No particulars ' were ob tainable, and Thursday's Statesman was anxiously awaited. From it we find the following: Judge J. W. Hus ton was suddenly attacked by neural gia of the beart at about 11 o'clock Wednesday morning and for a time bis condition was alarming. Ile was sitting in a chair at home reading a newspaper when the attack came upon him and he was in an unconscious con dit'on for several hours. The judge was alone in the room at the time, bnt Mrs. Huston soon en tered and found him breathing heavily. His features were contracred and his appearance gave cause for alarn. Mrs. Huston summoned Dr. Collister and by the aid of medical skill the Judge eventually relaxed into a natural sleep. When he awoke later in the day he had recovered from the painful malady, but was very weak. He g-adurlly gained strength, however, and was resting easy last nieht. The Judge had been on the street during the fere noon, apparently in his usual hea'th. Judge Huston's sudden illness gave rise to a rnmor that the attrci had been fatal, and this caused marked ex citement throughout the city, it being several hours before the trath was generally known. SOLDIERS HOME. Effort Boing Mado lo Ouot Charlaa A. Clark iho Superintendant. The present soldiers home muddle serves to call attention to ajmatter that has been public knowledge for some time. This is the fact that an effort is being made to oust Superintendent Clark. The attorney general, it Is understood, is very anxious to put Clark out. The Governor is credited with being friendly to Clark.—States man. MAS, HUN, WOMAN. All is lot a pathway of roses for the hunter la the land of Weiser. A few days ago a jolly nlmroi bad his cheer fulness rndely jarred when a hatchet face!, grlm-vlsaged woman appeared before him at the rear end of a horizon tal Winchester ant in a soft, angelic voice sweetly instructed him to "git" off the place as there was "no hnnt'n 'lowed" there. The surprised sports man listened to the rapidly and explo sively uttered statements of the vari ous number of big bleeding heles that would be put throagh his liver if he didn't klatawa, exanined the nnusual ly large bore of the rifle, contemplated the forbidding piece of petticoat at the other end, and, concluding that discre tion was the better part of valor, got off'n her land with due and proper celerity.— Weiser Signal. TUE PLATERS. The Buehanan Comedy Company have occupied the Opera House all week. Their efforts are well appre ciated, as each evening the c'ze of the audience increases. A change of pro gram has taken place nightly, and no soag, dance or specialty repeated. Mr Buchanan is one of the old echool of players, a type peculiar in himself. Ile is supported by a good company, one of the best that has ever traveled o /er the Snoft line, and is ful'y deserving the liberal support given it by tbe peo ple of Caldwell. Th s afternoon at 2 o'clock a matinee wi'i be given and tonight at 8:30 the company will give their farewell performance, which is expected to be more laughable, than anything previously placed on the boards. WA8HINQTON THE MINUET. Tho Stately Präsident Danced At tha Firat inaugura! Ball. Mrs. Burton Harrison shows, in an article in "With Washington in the Minuet," in the Ladies' Home Journal, that the "father of his country" was fond of dancing, not giving up the pastime until some time after he bad retired;to private life. Describing the first inaugural ball at New York, in May, 1789, Mrs. Harrison pictures the suspense awaiting Washington's se lection of a partner for the minuet, each belle easnestly hoping that the honor should come to her. The chief, however, made his choice without a second's hesitation, and appeared "leading up to the disk of shining par quetry, a sweet and ingenuous young matron—the bride of a year, Mrs. Max well, born a Yan Zandt, daughter of Jacobus Van Zandt, chairman of the so-called Revolutionary Committee of Patriots in New York. And now, under the gaze of dowagers and belles, dnvious in spite of themselves of Mis tress Maxwel "s luck, Washington, lay ing his left hand on his 'îeart, executes a profound bow, to his partner, she blushing like a very rose of spring. Mrs. Maxwell in return, dips low till her satin skirts f orm a portentous 'cheese'; then recovering her balance, places her little gloved hand in the capacious one of the chief, who raising it above her head, takes the first, step in the prim but graceful old dance. From long practice, and through the continual use cf his muscles, the hero's great frame is surprisingly pliant in the repeated bows and changes of pos ture demanded by the minuet. His feet retain something of the arch of youth as he directs them with preci sion through the figures that allow no deviation of a dancer's fancy, but must be carried out to the end like a raatha matical problem in order to insure suc cess. A murmur of applause runs around the circle of 'elegant females,' who follow him rather than his part ner, in the slow windings and stepplngs of this intricate evolution. FOUND FRSZEN Jo* Kauffman Loaaa Hia Lifo in «ha Snow on th* Summit Joe Kauffman lost his life In the snow on the summit on the Idaho City road Wednesday night. He was found yesterday morning. Though he was still living he was so far gone that he died soon after being taken to a place of shelter. Deceased was a well known miner. Recently it seems, he has been of un sound mind. At Idaho City he was lately held in jail several days the doc tor stating that he had softening of the brain. When he was released he walked to Boise, where he acted queer - ly. Early in the week he disappeared, and the next heard of him was the news of his being found on the sum mit.
