GETS "PIN. » Story Goes Road Will Be Con tinued on to Grangeville HILL IN DARRIMAN DOMAIN, Would Be Clever Strategy on Part of Jim Hill Just at the present time while there are so many surveying crews in this section and the Hill and Harriman line are fighting each other and calling one anothers bluffs it is pretty hard to give much credence to any railroad rumor and the ink is hardly dry on the paper announcing some railroad move in Central Idaho before another story is started. But after it is all sifted down we beleive Idaho county aud ('entrai Idaho will find it is going to have sev eral new lines of railroad. The latest ff'om Bosie ami states story comes J im Hill has secured the "Pin" and will connect up with the Grangeville This looks feasable as Hill will thus get down in the Central Oregon country and thus com pell Har to cease his light in Central branch. riman i Idaho and Washington.

There the survey joins that of the Northern Pacific and it is to be the junction of the two roads, according to the present plans. From Weiser it is suggested a Hill road may be built westward extending to the Coast and opening up a vast area of undeveloped territory. Such ac quistiou of the Pacific & Idaho Nortli property would mean the com pletion of that road over the projected northern route and actual contraction would begin at once, as no time would be lost by Hill in invading Harriman territory. Council a Division Point. ern A Council, it is understood, will be made a division point for the Pacific Idaho Northern branch by the Northern Pacific in case the deal goes through. Humors to this effect have stimulated the realty market in the Council valley, not only in town lots, but farm property as well. E. M.

SPECIAL TO CONTESTANTS From today up to and including June 15 we will allow 300 votes on every dollar of back sub scription turned in. is made solely for the purpose of making back Positively withdrawn after June 15. It is up to you to get busy. This is a limited offer and collections. Here we are again after an absence of one issue with the count and find almost 400,000 votes have been cast There has been no change in places but some of those who have been in the lead have had their majorities reduced until now they are in the lead by a small margin. Take for instance the first district there is less than three thoussnd votes difference between the three leading candidates. In the second district the voting has been heavy and the candi dates in that district have almost reached the forty thousand mark. In the third district the Salmon river section, Mrs. Freeman still leads but her majority lias been cut down from six thousand to four and the light continues close. . The fourth or Grangeville district shows very little difference in the standing of the candidates. There is plenty of room for workers in Grange ville and here is where 11 large amount of back subscription can he collected. The interest in a contest has never been greater and every day we are in terrogated as to what chance this girl or that girl has. We hear that this contestant will win out. or that will, everybody is making a guess. No one knows and no one will until after the last votes have been cast after nine o'clock on the evening of July seventh. The rivalry between the contestants lias ceased to be of a friendly nature and the bitterness quite often hobs up. From now on to and including June 15, just in order to stimulate collections and get it the large sums of money due us 011 back subscription we give 300 votes on every dollar paid in. This is for back subscription and this otter will not be good after that date. We need the money, you need the voses. Get after those in arrear. This is your chance and do not come in with back subscription money after that date and ask us to give you 300 votes per dollar. Here is a chance to do some effective work. There is every indication that many of the contestants are holding hack a great deal of back money received 011 back subscriptions and while this is not contrary to the rules of the contest it should be remembered that 300 votes on every dollar which we are now giving is a special öfter and will be withdrawn after June 15. Keep in Mind That the Free Press actually prints more news than any other paper in the county. That the contest closes July 7. A. Y. P. CONTEST THIS COUPON IS GOOD FOR 10 VOTES Name Address FREE PRESS Not good after June 12, 1909 After that it ia too late. That one vote may decide your fate. That the Free Pré« is the largest paper in the county. That there are plenty of votes yet to be had for the asking. That it is not wise to put off for to morrow the votes you should get to day. That your friends can pay aa far in advance as they wish. We must car ry out our part of the contract or go to prison. That the 300 votes given on each dollar of back substription will not last always. That there are many dollars in back subscription that must be paid and the people might just as well Heltle now when they can help you as after July seventh for then the money must come. That some papers publish a list with the dates of the last payment of their subscribers prink'd opposite the names and there is a strong probability of this paper following suit. Better pay up and help the girls. That in order to win you must work and work hard. That the prizes offered were not bought from a bargain counter. That the Free Press is an Idaho county pa ] st ami boosts for the entire county and should be taken bj - every hustling and progressive citizen. That a club of your friends who would pledge themselves to pay so many years in advance and east the votes for you would lie of great as sistance. That your friends should help you and pay up several years in advance. That promises do not count in the ballot box. Money paid in is the on ly way to get votes. None for sale. First District.
