Lightning Cuange«. —The singular rapidity with which the weather flops itself about in these latitudes is sufficient to shake tbe faith of the oldest inhabi tant. Last Friday night there was glo rious moonlight. Saturday was clear and cold. Saturday night and Sunday morning threatened snow but the sun went down in a clear sky, while up on the timber line in the foothills there were heavy cloud mists forming whose moisture congealed on the trees, tiie arctic element presenting a beautiful picture. We are liable to have an inch of snow befofe morning, and then again we are just as liable to have a warm chinook wind which will send the mer cury bubbling up among tbe forty's. You can't most always sometimes just tell what weather we will have in this country, and the wise man is lie who never predicts. Mors Quartz. —The annual fall excite ment over quartz discoveries on Salmon river has set in on tbe prairie. The location of the new leads is on tiie breaks of the Salmon, a short distance above Amos Carver's ranch, and they were discovered a few day's ago by a party of prospectors named Sutherland, McFarland and Benner, while on their way out from Alton district. From the small specimens they brought out to show us we judge the ledge to be com posed of free-gold quartz, containing some copper and much iron. It is a honey-combed, oxydised rock, and looks better than any we have ever seen from this end of the river. The country-rock in the vicinage of tiie lind is lime and slate, a likely formation for good quartz when not situated too near the basalt. There is nothing in sight to justify any excitement. McFarland and Benner bought a big bill of goods here and left Sunday for the Little Salmon, where they will make tbeir winter camp, hunting principally, and prospecting the ledge between whiles. Sutherland, who accompanied them out, is the hero of the late lamented Yellow Pine excitement and the same old Bill Sutherland with whom we used to splice blankets in the earliest days of the Cœur d'Alene stampede. Bill was the discoverer of the "Sunset" lode at Carbon center, one of the bon anza mines of the great northern camp, and he left Saturday to look after his interests there. All the boys are satis fied with the showing made by the Alton mines that that district lias great future before it. a One of our young bloods went to call on his best girl the other night, and while putting in his time where it did the most good tiie dog packed off his robber overshoes. The body of a man named Kenealy was found Thursday night in the open basement of tbe unfinished Villard hotel in the center of Portland. He had been stabbed to death and robbed. There was a dance out at Lvman Castle's, Lake district, last Friday night and there were present thirty-one gen tlemen and only four ladies. Back in Arkansaw we used to call 'em "stag" dances, and as for fun, bless you, there was'nt a boy in the bunch dared to go home sober. Reports fiom Murray are to the effect that a good stretch of placer territory has been found at the head of Clear water ranging from one to three miles in width and running all tiie way down to Oro Fino, where in former days an active camp existed. The diggings will average from $3 to $5 a day to tho man. SIDE IV A LK PR A TTLE. Snow on the mountains. Now feed your turkeys extra rations. The Indiuns are all in from the mountains.

Dr. Bibb y took bis buggy Sunday clear through to Greer's ferry on a profession al visit. The (rail crosses Liwyer's can yon and has hitherto been considered impracticable for vehicles. With a little grading on the side hills of the canyon a good natural road to Lewiston exis s, und we have often wondered why it wiia not prelerred to the Craig'» moun tain route.

Hailey's friends in the late campaign fought with Spartan firmness. Shoshone county gave Hailey nine majority in a total vote of about 2;000. Ada county, lohn Hailey's Imme gave him three times the majority he received t-vo years ago. John M. Cannsdy was re-elected auditor and recorder of Alturaa county by five hundred majority. The late e lections make the U. S sen ate a tie. The president of that body, however, will cast tiie deciding vote on all questions. The Blackfoot Reporter is still black guarding honest John Hailey. We -uggest a dose of last year's axle-grease to settle its stomach. A man named Schaffer, commonly known as Dutch Pete, had an attack of I lie jim-jams at Kingston on Tuesday from an excess of bad whiskey. T wo men are reported to have bolstered him to the polls, secured Ilia vote and in an hour afterwards lie was a dead man.— Wardner News. Bro. Leland says : have visited Nez Perce aud Idaho coun ties during the canvass and stnied his position on the annexation question iiis insj -rity iu tiie north would have been 600 more than it was. It was the misrepiesentatiou ot his true position upon the question by his enemies that prevented tiis getting 1,200 to 1,500 ma jority iu the north, notwithstanding the (Montana movement iu Shoshone."
