M VM WM ffWWWWWMt Dr. ous the His the FRANCHISE FOR THE ELECTRIC Application Was lade at Tuesday's Council Meeting. ROAD WILL BE BUILT SEEMS ASSURED Messrs. Randolph and Thomp son Securing Terminals. G. W. Thompson, of Lewiston, a director of the Lewiston & South eastern Electric Railway company, and one of the trustees who are responsible for the encouraging position in which the prospect is today and also one of the best finan cial representatives of the road, accompanied by F. J. Randolph, secretary of the company, were in the city the first of the week on very important business. They came here direct from Nez Perce, where they spent several days in the interests of the line. They re port very encouraging prospects at Nez Perce, stating to a Free Press representative that terminal grounds and the necessary right-of way had been secured there. The gentlemeu, at the council meeting Tuesday night, presented an appli cation for a franchise to enter the city with the electric liue. A spe cial meeting of the council is calied for tonight at which time action will be taken on this matter. It is expected the franchise will he granted. There are several routes in pros pect, though the favored one Beems to be to enter the city near the Orangeville Brewing Co. plant and proceed along Main street to Ather ton's blacksmith shop, after which a loop will be made and return out on the hill along South street. The gentlemen will go back over the same road they came and finish up some minor details in regard to the granting of rights-of-way be tween here and Nez Perce. In the original agreement with E. Cowper thaite, who will probably finance the road, the trustees were to ob tain terminal grounds and rightB of-way and it is upon this mission that Messrs. Thompson and Ran dolph are in this section. not to <f to to of DR. S. E. BIBBY DEAD. Veteran Physician Coes to His Final Rest. Dr. S. E. Bibby, one of the best known physicians in the state, died at his home in this city last Friday morning, after a short illness, at the age of 58 years. The funeral was held Sunday from the Odd Fellows hall, and the high esteem in which he was held was shown by the largest attendance of citi zens ever gathered on a like occas ion in this city. The Masonic, K. of P. and W. O. W. lodges and the national guard officiated. Follow ing is a tribute to the memory of the deceased doctor from the pen of A F. Parker: The very large number of people from all over Camas Prairie and Salmon river who attended the funeral of the late Dr. Bibby, on Sunday last, has led many of our late comers to ask: What man ner of man was this who was held in such high esteem by so many people? In an intercourse extending over twenty years I can Btate that if any oue trait in his character pre dominated it was his sympathetic kindness to his patients of every degree. In years past I have many times accompanied Dr. Bibby in his drives all over this great coun try as he made the rounds of his patients, and had opportunities to observe the nnfaiiing kindness of his great heart toward the suffer ing who came ander bis charge. And the fact that many of hie patients did not bave a dollar in the world and never expected to be able to repay him for bis services mattered not to the worthy doctor. Rich or poor, the financial condi tion of his patients made no differ ence with him. In the practice of all medical men a large percentage of their practice is never paid for and is charged np to charity with out ostentation or remark. In the early days when money was scarce to a degree undreamed of nowa days, and people without a dollar were trying to establish homes in the wilderness, Dr. Bibby had an unusually large share of this class of practice which, to hie everlast ing credit, he attended with the same earnest zeal, through fair weather and foul, jnst as though his fees were already in his hands, I have known him to take a flask of wine and little delioaaies to each people, and toys to keep the chil dren amused, when I knew, and he himself knew, that he would 1 3 ? ! never get a dollar of repayment. In theee long drives I had ample opportunity to get acquainted with Dr. Bibby. He was an omnivor ous reader with a very retentive memory, and he wm unusually well posted in all the domains of literature, history, the sciences, the arts, politics and philosophy. Metaphysics also attracted him. His speculations extended into the .unknown and unknowable. He held a firm belief in the immor tality of the soul, and I well recall the far-away look in his eyes as he recited the Btanza from Heine: "From the ravages of life and its riot What marvel I yearn for the quiet Which bides in the harbor at last; For the lights with their welcoming quiver That throb o'er the sanctlAed river Which girdles the harbor at last— The heavenly harbor at last." On another occasion he quoted: If I must die, I will, encounter darkness as a bride, and hng it in mine arms." His thoughts ran largely to these matters, but in his professional intercourse they did not appear. He attended my own family through births, marriages and deaths, and we always found him the skilful physician, wise counsellor and good friend down to almost his last hour. <f Dr. Bibby was possessed of a magnificent physique and fine con stitution, but latterly his health was greatly impaired through the exposure to the elements brought about by long years of practice scattered over a vast area, and his professional career of late was con fined almost exclusively to office practice. He was always neigh borly, genial and generous to a thought, aud the high esteem in which he was held throughout this county was attested by the mag nificent attendance from far and near when the last sad obsequies over the remains were held. No other individual in this county has had or will have such a large con course of sorrowing mourners as the late Dr. Bibby. He was laid to rest on a lovely Sabbath day on the sunny knoll where his feet used to walk, by the Masonic fraternity, of which he was a devoted member, and as the mortal remains of this good man were lowered into the grave we thought "Of faithful service rendered: Duties done in charity, Kind speech and stainless thought."

The company has received $3,350 from the sale of Btock subscribed between Meadows and Goff and the gentlemen anticipate at least a like amount will be subsetibed between Goff and White Bird. The gentle men while here received much en couragement from our cititizens and the line, if constructed, will connect with another independent line, owned by Boise people, at Van Wyck. From there to Lardo the poles are set and the wire al ready on the ground. the community it is a comfort to kuow that be goes to his last rest with his work well done and the esteem of a grateful people.

Thing, Hanna, Skinner, Van Wert and Wylde and Thing were easily the stars of the team, of both teams in fact, their playing being well up to the professional standard. Of the high school Brown and Eames did the best work, although all the mem bers of the team played well. They were playing against better trained and much more experienced players is the cause to which their defeat is attributed. Prof. Cbas. Greenough, of the high school, refereed the contest. Another game is to be played at the gynasinm tomorrow night when the boys from the high school claim that things will be different. They received their new uniforms the first of the week and will appear in these for the first time. A good contest is assured. Skinner Still Doing Business. E.
