Idaho people are receiving a wann welcome at the Lewis and Clark exposition and many goods words are being said for the "Gem of the Mountains." The recent visit of the Idaho editors was an occasion for some very complimen tary remarks from the fair management which wilt be ap preciated by all loyal Idahoans. Mr. Goode, as well as Director Robert Livingstone, who made the principal address of the afternoon, was very com plimentary in his reference to the Gem state and her ex hibit of resources and future possibilities. He declared, in extending a welcome to the visitors, that Idaho had taken an interest In the exposition In its early stages, when as sistance and good cheer had meant something. "There is one thing in which I think Idaho heats all the surrounding states," declared Mr. Goode, "and that is the universal confidence and enthusiasm of the people. The is people In general and the editors in particular here in Ore- j gon have been very much in earnest in the promulgation I of the exposition matter, but I believe that the Idaho editors J and people, taken one by one all the way through, will beat : them in this particular. j "And I w ish to congratulate the editors of Idaho in that | they have something over which to enthuse. It is pretty hard to work up any enthusiasm when there Is nothing to base it upon, hut with a magnificent young commonwealth like Idaho to talk about, it is no womjer that the papers of your state are filled with facts as to the resources and breathing confidence In the future." Director Livingstone, who followed President Goode, went more Into detail than did the chief executive of the mam moth exposition in speaking of the Gem state . He declared there was no reason to doubt the future of a state which could point to the mineral arid agricultural wealth of Idaho. "When you consider," lie declared, "that the wonderful mines of Idaho are as yet hut half developed, nnd yet she Is among the leading states of the union in all classes of mineral wealth, that she produces over half the lead output of the entire world, that the annual production from her mines Is over $20,000,000, it is no wonder that the writers of a state such ns this enthuse. Idaho today has more land under Irrigation than both Washington nnd Oregon, and there are enterprises now under contemplation which will Increase the productiveness of her farms ten fold. "I wish to say to you that the Interests of, Idaho are those of the entire northwest; what benefits your state benefits every seciion of the Pacific coast, and what brings ! ' ¥. F.

"When a through line railroad is built across Idaho, as now seems practically certain, when the Riparla extension j of the O. R A N, is built, when the Northern Pacific ex tends Its lines to Idaho county, and above all, when the 1 federal government has completed the Celilo canal, afford ing free and unobstructed passage up and down the Colum bia and Snake rivers, both Idaho and Oregon will benefit enormously from the Improvement." NO WHITEWASHING OF ANY FRAUDS. All frauds look alike to the president and a sweeping in vestigation must follow wherever the taint appears. This is illustrated in the recent disclosures concerning the cot ton and crop reports. A correspondent noting this, says: The president has taken charge of the department of agriculture cotton and crop report scandal with character- | istic vigor and officials In Washington are now moving with an entirely unaccustomed energy. The president was thor oughly disgusted with the calm and dispassionate view taken of the matter by Secretary Wilson and some charac teristically vigorous Instructions were flashed over the wires from Oyster Bay to Washington. As a result. Secretary Wilson, after announcing that the affair was a closed Inci dent, that Chief Statistician John Hyde would be retained and that no further action would be taken In the matter, suddenly changed his mind. He laid before the depart ment of Justice all the evidence In the case and authorized the secret service operatives to conduct a thorough investi gation of every phase of the crop reporting work and the bureau of statistics. The evidence was not in the hands of the department of justice more than twenty-four hours when it was decided that it was of such a character as to require its submission to the grand Jury and it was placed in the hands of District Attorney Morgan Beach with that end in view The construction of the Lew Iston-Ripnria branch and the Lewiston-Orangeville line will mean the turning loose of j about 14,000,000 of money in the Clearwater country in the I next 18 months. In addition to this the building of the J electric line from here to Orangeville w ill add Î 2 . 000 . 00 C : more, and the harvest of 1903 ns much as all the railroads j combined. This ought to place the Lewiston country o > | easy street for the next few years if there were no othe developments in sight hut this is only the beginning of the i story The construction and operation of mills and fac- ! tories will follow the construction of railroads and the val ley will hum with new industries. This is the era of new ! things and great things for the whole Clearwater country. The great resources of the country have been bottled up I with railroad monopoly sitting on the lid. but the lid is! soon to he taken off and energy and action will seize the on- ; portunitv to develop the marvelous resources of the richest! section of the Pacific northwest. T. J. Kern, who lias so successfully conducted the Stites Journal for several months past, has discontinued the same and sold his subscription list to the Orangeville Standard. Mr. Kern, it is said, will move his plant to Portland, where he will open up a job printing office. The Journal was one of the neatest papers In northern Idaho L. A. York ha.« World to Avery » same.

OPPOSITION WITHDRAWN. It tha (Boise» Statesman.) will please the great majority the people of the state to learn Senator Heyburn has determined to abandon his opposition to the forest reserve policy, or at least confine it to efforts to secure modifications as to details. The government's policy is so good, being fraught with suclr great possibil ities for good to the state and its peo ple. that no minor objections as to de tails should he permitted to interfere 1 w ith it. Experience is teaching the de- 1 part me nt what modifications are need ed and every needed change will be made as time progresses. The depart ment is not seeking to harass the peo P |p of any community or to shut orf any Industry which need not he Inter fered with. Its aims are to preserve the forests while permitting the ma ture timber to he out and to maintain conditions under which the dange.- of fire shall be minimised. In promulgat ing the general policy it was unavo»d aide that some details would he left subject to alteration, and these altera tions are being made just as raptdiv as possible. In the end the people will have nothing of which they can legiti mately complain, while they will recog nize the forest reserve system as one that will lie of incalculable benefit tc all legitimate interests. Senator Alters His Views. Washington. July 14.—Special to the Boise Statesman: Senator Heyburn has written to Chief Forester Pinchot halfway apoligiztng for his violent op position to the recent establishment of forest reserves In Idaho and iud< cating that he w ill desist in his right j on the administration. Senator Hey burn does not go so far as to accept | the administration's views and poi'ol»»s i as correct, but there is confiden t j among the forestry officials that there! will be no trouble about creating re-1 serves in Idaho whenever the circutn- ' stances Justify. It is Inferred that Sen- j ator Heyburn will not carry his fight I, tnto the senate next winter, as he had threatened to do, especially as he now » admits that much of his past opposi- j tlon to the policy was based on an Im proper understanding of the facts. No Arrests Have Been Made. Since the federal grand Jury has closed its session at Boise and it was made known that eight indictments were made implicating men of promi nence in the Lewiston country expecta tion has been aroused and people have been on the alert to know definitely who the guilty parties were against whom alleged frauds were charged. This could be ascertained in no other way than in the service of the warrants of arrest but up till date no service has been made. The warrants will be sent to Captain Schattner and the men when arrested will in all probability be taken before U. S. Commissioner E. O'Neill, where their bonds will be fixed pending a trial of the cases before Judge Beatty at Moscow In the October term. There Is some speculation about the size of the bond but this is probably In the dis cretion of the commissioner, the only precedent for him being the bond of Cornell fixed at Boise last week, which was 11,000.
