The city council met in the coun

County Assessor John V. Nash
has begun assessing for the year 1908
and has already selected men to assist
in listing the property in the Clear
water country. J. M. Shaw, of
Kamiah, will look after the assessing
in Stites and other points down the
river and J. B. Leeper will list the
taxable property in the Harpster and
spent last week in Cottonwood and
has been devoting this week to
Grangeville and vicinity. At this
time he has been unable to secure a
deputy to handle the Salmon river
assessing. He may decide to go
down himself, later on, if a suitable
man cannot be secured.

It is said that C. E. Elmer, acting
adjutant general and private secretary

recently to inspect the local militia
company, aspires to the office of sec
retary of state.

At this conference,
the commissioners representing the
city and those looking after the water
company's interests will decide upon
the rate to be paid by the citizens for
the use of water.
W. N. Scales,
attorney for the water company, was
present Monday evening and asked
that the matter of electing the
missioners be deferred until the next
regular meeting of the council, Mon
day, March 2nd. He stated that J.
manager of the water
works, had been out of the city for
several days and owing to Mr. Jack's
absence he was unable to present the
company's version of the case at that
time. The request was granted and
the election of the commissioners will
occur until the next regular
THINKS BOUNTY UNFAIR.
Florence Reader Say* It I« a Graft of
the Inner Circlet.
The Globe is in receipt of the
following communication :
Florence, Idaho, Feb. 9, 1908.
Grangeville Globe: I noticed in
your issue of Jan. 15, the mention of
bounty to be paid for hides of predar
tory animals, of the large sum of §2.
The lawmakers do not give us back
woodsmen credit for having horse
sense. Who would be willing to
turn in a wolf skin worth from §12
to §15, or a lynx skin worth from §4
to §8 for the same, or even a bob-cat
worth §3 to §5 for the bounty price?
It is worth twice the bounty offered to
locate the game wardens after killing
the game. But we do not consider
this a bounty; it is simply a graft of
the Inner circles, which is proven by
the fact that they will not accept
pelts after April 1st, or when in poor
We have a few cougar, bear and
martin in this county. Why not pay
the enormous bounty price, §2, for
those also? If it is not a graft why
not punch holes in the ears or other
wise mark them to show the bounty
had once been paid, and leave the
hides for the hunter to get market
The above seems to be the opinion
of all the hunters with whom I have

careful. The cattle that range in the
steep hills of this country naturally
feed around the places that are easiest
of access first, and then if they are
not watched they drift to some other
place where grass is more plentiful
and water easily obtained.
Most of the ranchers of these
range countries put up several tons of
hay last fall in anticipation of the
usual winter weather, which means
snow and ice on the ranges. So far
the winter has been very pleasant and
but very little of the hay has been
used. All winter the ranges have
been free from the usual snow and
ice and the herds have ranged over
spots heretofore considered dangerous
on account of the icy surfaces caused
by the cold and stormy weather.
During past winters, many heavy
losses have been sustained by the
stockmen, whose cattle, in grazing,
have slipped from steep hillsides and
rolled into the canyons below with
