fell on the ice and fractured his ancle,
and lie will, perforce, remain in the
camp all winter. The fracture was re
paired in good style by Dr. Ford, whose
surgical skill and knowledge of medi
cine makes iiim a valuable man to have
around when accidents happen in an
isolated camp like Warrens. Mr. Cham
berlain says that there is every promise
of a large travel through Warrens into
tiie Alton district next summer, which
we hope will be the case,
satisfied that that district only needs
close prospecting to develope as good
quartz as any of the ledges yet struck
in the camp.

trading points. About

Idaho, and the assemblage was the most
orderly wo have had in a long time,
l'lie young people had a most enjoyable
time and relished the fine supper served
for the occasion at the hotel by Mr.
Brown. The festivities were continued
until daylight, when all adjourned home
öatibtiüd with their enjoyment.
Hay. —During the cold snap last week
the price of hay climbed
ot sight, but it soon dropped to normal
rates when the Thanksgiving chinook
began to get in its fine work on the

It is a popular belief that every

Ouu Representatives. —Messrs. L
imer and Fenn will leave in a few days
to attend the legislative session w hich
convenes at Boise city, December 13.
Mr. Larimer is an old w heel horse in
the legislative halls, and is withal a
scholar and a gentleman whose integ
rity and conservatism is a
against tiie enactment of uu-ortiiodox
legislation. His colleague, Frank Fenn,
is making his first appearance in public
life, anil his friends feel confident of
his ability to bold his own amid the
intellectual coterie wiio rendezvous at
the territorial capital during the legis
lative season. With such representa
tives tiie people of Idaho county can
rest assured that their interests will he
closely watched, and that in the many
shufiles and deals which attend a par
liamentary session their representatives
will not be thrown away in the discard.
Frank Parker. —Our big brother of
the Walla Walla .Statesman is a candi
date for a Federal office, and hi» ene
mies are flooding the president with
anonymous telegrams denouncing his
character. Secretary Lamar said tiie
other day that if these reports were true
he ought to be serving a life term in
the penitentiary, and on the other hand
ins endowments were from the highest
men in the land and would justify the
president in appointing him
office in his gift. Tiie dirty dogs who
assail Frank Parker's character have no
more reputation to lose than a common
harlot. They are human mules, born
and raised in a brothel, and their mal
ignant utterances are simply the exu
dations of the epidemic erysipelas with
which their scrofulatic carcases are sat
