School Election. — A oublie meeting for the election of a Board of Trustees for the Columbia River Conference Academy for the ensuing year, was held at the Academy, Saturday Oct 9th. Mr A Carpenter was elected chairman and M Wagner, secretary. The meeting was called to order by the president and the subject of the meeting stated. Nominations then being in order, that business was taken up, which resulted in the following nominations being made: A Carpenter, Geo Hchuiadeka Rev 1) G strong Dr S Bihby J II Rbbinsou W A Ilall and \V C Pearson, and upon mo tion they were elected. There being no timber business tbe meeting Cd jourued. Who is It.—A gentleman recently from Lewiston tells of aged about 25 years, who boarded the down beat at Almota, on Sunday. The woman was very paie as if from Bevere sickness and carried a large valise. It was soon discovered that tlie valiBe con tained a child two days old and that the young mother was bringing the child to friends in Walla Walla county for keeping and to hide her shame. There being danger of smothering the infant in the valise, the conductor of the train, after leaving Riparia, compelled the woman to open the grip in order to give the child fresh air. the train at Prescott, and more by the passengers, be well known in the upper country, where her parents have resided for How the woman managed to keep on her feet was a mystery to the passengers.—IP. W. Union. a young woman, The woman left was seen no She is said to years. Political Partisans.— Most men hold political convictions, and we admire them for it. It is part of human nature for men to believe in something, and they are the better for it. The average citizen believes that certain political tenets are right, and being honest in this belief, he is a partisan. Partisans are invariably controlled by convictions and not by policy. To such men tbe Thé "mugwumps" stands upon mental ground upon which no honest man can stand and preserve his self respect. Your average partisan accords to every man the right to differ from him, but his opponent, to secure his respect] must differ from principle.and not from policy or other selfish motives. The partisan in the discharge of political duty knows no friend or foe ; he is not moved bv passion or swayed by preju^ dice, and he believes that no greater calamity could overtake our country than for people to become too ignorant to have positive convictions about govJ ernment, or too cowardly to avow them. For our part we admire these intense partisans, because of the information they disseminate about governmental affairs among their neighbors, republic is safe so long as partisan exist, and with them our free institu tious can no more fail than tbe planet can fail to keep their appointed orbits LOCAL POINTS.

John Hailey, Judge Caton and W. T. McKern ad dressed the citizens of this place last evening to a largo audience. Every body turned out to listen to "honest John," who "does not part his hair in the middle" nor does not think he is a masher. Very different was the entree of one Fred Dubois some four weeks since, who the first thing he did was to enquire for one Bob Bragan, the county clerk who tried to ring in the bogus re turns for Singlser at the last election but got beautifully left. Dubois left his fight in this county in the hands of (he three worthies. Dick Wright, Bob Brogan and Col. Manning, the mugwump three. They soil every thing they fasten on to here, and Dubois had enough load without them. Although he might have got a few republican voles in this county if he had kept his hands off, now I do not believe lie will get even a half dozen of his own party. They have weighted him down so that he would reach the half mile post. All the democrats and many of the straight republicans in this section will vote for John Hailey as the better class of citizens are tired of the renegades and carpet-baggers, seeking office, and robbing the public crib. The speakers go to Cœur d'Alene to day, and will address the public there this evening. One 11. \V. Smith a seedy looking individual who is a sorehead is following in their wake. lie w^ll also speak their to-night. He would not speaE here last night, as he claimed he did not have "time enough." He might as well keep his time and take it home with him as he is surely wasting it in this county, in trying to make people believe F'red. Dubois is not a earpet A. Voter. bagger. OI R VT A It RUNS LETTER. Warrens. I. T. Oct 0.1886. Editor Press. —So far as known all the prospectors have returned from the mountains. Many locations have been made in the Alton district, but the only one in which anything like develop ment work has been done is the Cleve land owned by 8. M. Johnson, Hoyt & Co. They have sunk several shafts, one thirty five feet. A pack-train loaded with ore from this mine passed through here three days since for the Weiser— the ore to he sent to Salt Lake for treat ment. It was of course carefully selec ted ore and is expected to go about $800 per ton. Some very fine specimens ol native silver have been found there by Mr. Johnson who thinks there is a good deal in- it, but so little work has been done that nothing definite can be said. From many other locations samples have been taken for assay and some of them indicate good ore but there is about the usual amount of humbug going on. No placer ground lias been found worth locating. A survey of the political horizon shows everyone to be well satisfied. The county tickets are in the field and you pays your taxes and takes your choice. Both are quite unexceptionable. My friend Hexter declares that the democratic ticket is so very excellent that it would he a shame not to see it all elected, and I myself find the repub lican ticket composed of such capable and vigorous material that it would be almost criminal to use a pencil on it anywhere—which I could not say be fore for the last eighteen years. Home parties with naturalization papers with no paaticular politics say they don't know which one to vote, such men need interviewing. An eye might profitably be kept on hospital business. Somebody's good nature is being shamefully im posed upon. A saw-buck Hnd a buck saw and the toe of a boot vigorously applied would save that fund expense. Of course the some Mining hereabouts continues on as usual the weather being extremely brilliant. N. B. W. Democratic County Ticket. Probate Judge... District Attorney, Council.

Campaign Notes. • Idaho and Nez Perce counties will give Uncle Hailey rousing majorities. It is difficult for the Dubois organs to explain wherein Dubois would make a better delegate than Hailey. All the talk of the republican Dubois barrel organs about Uncle Hailey being a mormon is only bluster and jealousy. The Democrat says north Idaho will prove the political battle-ground so far the delegateship is concerned. In that event the battle is already won for Hailey, Dubois is having a nice little collkr and-elbow wrestle with himself in hts alleged candidacy for the delegateship which makes the boys laugh. Duboia has no more chances of "getting there than a snowball in hades. The campaign against Uncle John i confined exclusively to abuse Hailey. They carefully avoid praising Dubois for the two reasons that they are not sincere in supporting him and that there is absolutely nothing tobe said for him. is is of • According to the Salt Lake Tribune logic, none but republicans are Ameri can citizens; and all democrats rnons. The same journal not long since stigmatised all democrats as rebels. are mor Let Uncle John remind the voter« that bona fide residents like Ezra Baird now holding the Federal offices in Idaho, except those republican officials in Lewiston who are maintained in office by the grace of the democratic party. are The mormons of Bear Lake and Onedia counties have called a meeting to organize an independent party Paris, Bear Lake county, Oct. 14th. It invites "all lovers of truth, justice, political purity and Jeffersonian demo cracy to come to the front." The mor mous will not vote for Hailey, but he » i^l be elected all the same. IredT. Dubois, republican nominee for delegate to congress, made a short speech at the meeting last night. Hie talk showed him to be an amateur at speechmaking. In his talk of 12} min utes he used the pronoun "I" forty-nine times. This, we understand, is bis first attempted speech in the campaign.— Ketchum Bulletin. at Lewiston Notes. Mr. and Mrs. C. F. Cone of Freedom left for Chicago Friday. The prairie is well represented by a largo delegation down to see the races. Abram Binnard took the Major to Portland last week for medical advice.

G. W. t Lapwai he made Norris, the new Indian agent a yesterday, and the impression on me was that of a gentleman in each and every particular. The Indians said to be well pleased at the change. are There is much kicking at the "Jockey Club" for selecting the Junction track, owing to its distance from town. The racing all around has been more than tame and owing the scarcity of coin betting is spiritless. Mr. Harriman did Camas prairie proud in capturing the "bucket" and its contents at Thursday's trotting race. 1 arrived in the city just in time to miss the race, but helped the boys celebrate the victory all the same. Hon. G. W. Adams, another demo crat who is wet-nursing Dubois, spoke for two hours on political issues at the court house last night to an audience of about fifty, half of whom were demo crats. The republicans here are not enthusing for Dubois, although there is an "old guard" who are faithful to the end. All sorts of tricks will be sprung before election to switch democrats o the Dubois ranks, but the party in Nez Perce is kept well in hand by a tight check-liDe, and all the kicking they do won't help Dubois a bit. on NOTICE.
