FROM 190/ "SESSION LAWS II Measure, aS Approved, Given in Full—Some Comment. In view of the fact that several erroneous publications of the Sun day Rest law have occurred here tofore, the measure, as approved and as it now stands on the statute books of the state of Idaho, iB given space in this issue of the Free Press. "The law, I think, was originally aimed at saloons," said a promi nent attorney of the city, "and as far as the Sunday closing of these places is concerned the measure will, in my opinion, prove of much value. But there are parts of the measure which are certainly open to criticism. As I interpret the law a cigar store can sell cigars on 8unday but the sale of chewing and smoking tobacco is prohibited. In that case, for instance, if a man was hungry he could not secure bread at any of the stores on Sun day but would have the privilege of indulging in as many cleat Havanas as he chose'. Any store in the stale, that carries a line of medicines, according to my version of the measure, can remain open on Sunday as long as nothing but these goods and supplies for the sick room are sold. "Baseball, I think, can be played Sundays if an admission fee is not charged. If the ball grouuds are equipped with a ticket office where mouey is collected for admittance I would look upon it as a business and a business that, according to the law, would not be allowed on Sunday. If particular attention is given to the punishment for vio lation of Section 2 it will be noticed that if the officer before whom an occurred to 10 minutes imprison ment in the county jail for vio lating this section of the act and the case would be settled". Following is the law: House Bill No. 98. AN ACT To set apart Sunday as a day of pub lic rest; to provide for the closing of saloons and other places of bus iness on Sunday; to prohibit the selling, giving away, or disposing of any spirituous, vinous, malt or intoxicating liquors on Sun day; to provide for the closing of places of public amusement and prohibiting horse racing on Sunday; and to provide for the punishment of those guilty of violating the provisions of this act, and providing for the dis posal of all fines collected under the terms of this act.

Fire Company May Disband at Next Meeting. LACK OF INTEREST, THEY SAY Only a Few Responded to Fri day Night's Alarm. For some time past the members of the fire company have noticed that interest was lagging consider ably in regard to the company's welfare. Friday night they de cided to arrange for a fake confla gration in order to ascertain just bow many citizens would assist in getting the fire-fighting apparatus to the scene of the blaze. A pile of useless pumber and old boxes was placed at the old Jersey House cor ner, and after a match was applied the alarm sounded. The result was that only a few men responded— hardly enough to pull one of the hose carts. Since that time, in view of this occurrence aud also that the fire company's meetings have been poorly attended lately, tbe boys have decided to disband at their next meeting, which occurs Thurs day, June 13th. The members of tbe company speak iu high terms of tbe attitude taken by the city council and say they could not have expected better treatment from this body. Lack of interest on the part of the citizens is their only complaint. The apparatus consists of two hose carts, one hook and ladder truck, and a chemical engine. All are fully equipped and in the best of condition. Sixty men can easily he used to look after the different apparatus, while the present en rollment is about fifteen. It is quite probable that matters will be arranged differently before their next meeting.

ESCAPES FROM PEN Andy Gilbert, Sent up From This Country. Skidoos. CONVICT ELUDES OFFICERS Murdered Joe Smith at Dewey Mine, Dec. 4, 1900. News came from Boise the last of the week that Andy Gilbert, a trusted convict at the »täte pen itentiary, had escaped about 9 o'cIock Friday evening. His ab sence was reported at 10 o'clock by a prisoner with whom Gilbert worked in the power house. The prisoner stated he could not find Gilbert to bring him to supper and had not seen him since about 9 o'clock. Guards immediately searched the prison yards but no trace of the missing convict was discovered. The crime for which Gilbert was sentenced was considered a very brutal oue; it occurred December 4, 1900. He went to a tent occu pied by Joe Smith, wife and baby, at the Dewey mine, and attacked Mr. Smith with a knife. The two men clinched and in the struggle which followed both rolled into the Clearwater river, which was but a short distance from the tent. Here Mr. Smith, who had been fatally stabbed, fainted. He was carried to the tent and died soon after. Eventually, Gilbert was tried and fonnd guilty of murder in the second degree. He was given a life sentence at hard labor in the state penitentiary. Up to this time no news of his capture has been received. Gil bert is described as being 5 feet and 9£ inches in height, is light complected and has light hair and blue eyes. He is slightly bow legged and has a very peculiar walk. RANGE FEED IS GOOD. "Best In Last Ten Years," Says A. D. Sewell. A. D. Sewell was a Grangeville visitor from his home at Lucile the last of tbe week. He came out to purchase a mowing machine in preparation for the handling of his crop of alfalfa. The first crop of alfalfa will soon be ready for harvest along the river and the ranchers are expecting a very large yield. Mr. Sewell says that the grass ou the mountain ranges in his sec tion of the country is better this year than at any time during the last ten years and that livestock is in the best of condition. He reports all the river country as prosperous with the best of evi dences for a most profitable season this year. The report that the Goff ferry, operated by Ole Johnson, had broken loose and had gone down tbe river was false, says Mr. Se well. Bert King's ferry at Lucile was the crossing to which the ac cident occurred. On account of this ferry being gone Mr. Sewell was obliged to leave his wagon at home. On his return trip the team was hitched to the mowing machine and the implement taken to Lucile on itB own wheels. Bound for Alaska. A partv consisting of Messrs L. C. and W. C. Bates, French Jarrett and J. Brown and Chas. Brown left on Monday's stage for outside points. Messrs. J. and Chas. Brown will go to Seward, Alaska, where they expect to locate per manently. Mr. Jarrett iB bound for Tyonok, Alaska, to remain in definitely. Lou Batdh expects to go to Nome, Alaska, though he may decide to stop at Tvonck with Mr. Jarrett. Mr. Bates will prob ably remain in Alaska for the next three years. All the gentlemeu expect to secure employment in the mines of the frozen north. The other member of the party, W. C. Bates, is returning to his home at San Francisco, after a visit of sev eral weeks here. G. A. R. News. Hancock Post No. 28, G. A.
