A magnificent harvest is now being gathered in the Clear water country and the opening price shows that the farmer will receive ample returns for his investment of capital and labor expended. The crop is estimated at a total of 10, 000,000 bushels, and the opening price for the wheat Is 68 cents. All other grains are quoted at highly remunerative prices. The record for the past year shows that there has been a good demand for farm lands and with such returns as the present season will yield, farm lands will be in greater demand than ever. A few years ago quarter sections were selling for $2,000 to $3,000, which are now worth from $4,000 to $ 6 , 000 , as the returns on the crops grown upon the land will amply prove. This is the condition of the farm lands that are embraced In the Clearwater country and make up the backing of the commercial prosperity of this section. Prosperity on the farms Is the backbone of prosperity for the towns and cities. "WTien the man with the hoe thrives the whole country pros pers. A good crop report forms the best kind of a foun dation for n bull movement In the prices of all real estate and In all kinds of Industrial and commercial activities, for when the farmer prospers his needs expand and something more than a crossroads store and a postoffice Is needed to supply hts wants. This means the building and development of small towns Into larger towns and these In turn form a nucleus for the development of larger cities as distributing centers for supplies. In this way commerce is bullded nnd the country developes. The Clearwater country is on the eve of a great develop ment. The wealth of Its natural resources has been recog nised by the transportation companies and proper facilities will now be given for the movement of the crops to market and for the transportation of supplies and materials for the development of many industries not now profitable because of the high tax of transportation. The whole Interior coun try will make a marvelous growth under this new Impetus and with that growth will come thp rapid development of the towns and cities that supply this rich section with the needs of its dally life for It is an unquestioned truth that cities and towns are dependent for their growth and devel opment on the prosperity of the tributary country. I | INSURANCE SAFETY. One feature of the Equitable s-ase which Is of more or less value to nil Insurance companies Is that the public has obtained h greater knowledge of the real financial strength of such concerns than It ever had before. Up to the time of thy present investigation there was too little knowledge of insurance companies and their methods. Now every reading man and woman knows that the average THE STATE OF IDAHO. (Portland Oregonian.i The Interest the stale of Idaho takes In the Lewis and Clark exposition, the Idaho building on the grounds, and the exhibit Idaho Is making of its products and possibilities are all very striking. And Idaho has published a book of neurly 30« pages, which for beauty and descriptive power Is a wonder. It has been prepared by the state bureau of Immigration, labor and statistics, is well written and beautifully Illustrated, and is no commonplace specimen of advertisement of the attractions anti resources of a state. Of our newer states none is making more rapid progress than Idaho. It is Just at the beginning of a marvelous career. Its possibilities of production are immense. Idaho is among the greatest of our mineral states, already, and the development of Us mines is but Just begun. Its stores of timber are scarcely exceeded even by those of Oregon or Washington. It has a vast area of productive soil,.and its cereals, vegetables and fruits are surpassed no where. Lying wholly west of the Rocky mountains, and subject to the control ling Influence of the Pacific ocean, Ida ho climate is equable and mild. The, numerous and powerful streams that pour out of the mountain ranges afford water power perhapp'greater than that of any other state,' and inexhaustible supply of water for Irrigation. "Keep your eye on Idahol" That State Is building railroads, opening mines, drawing upon the wealth of for ests. pushing Irrigation faster and more extensively than any other state, mul tiplying production every year by two. and astonishing everyone who saw it la early times and rpyisits it now. » JAPAN AND HER ALLY. f (Washington Post.) There are some indications that Jap an la fighting and. for Japan and no body else. Already the work of ab sorption has begva, and it i*. manifest that Korea and Manchuria are to be thoroughly Japanlzed. Japan will not be ordered out of Port Arthur this time, and her financial, commercial and manufacturing population are flocking to Dalny. Agriculturalists from Japan w ill not be slow to possess the rich farming districts as far north as Har bin and grain growing is sure tp be an important Japanese Industry. It will be rather a bold undertaking for anybody to dictate to Japan what she shall do with her victory. She will open or shut the door. Just as she pleases, and there are some indications that It is not going to be flung wide open. \\ ith the British alliance Japan Is perfectly secure from Interference. Fortunately for her. It is to England's Interest for Japan to wax In power. She Is England's only ally and a day is likely to come when that alliance will lie of vital Importance to the Eng llsh. France is no longer chivalrous Franre but bourgeois France that . name. mat, loves money more than glory, and that might eventuate in the loss of another province and another milliard. England no more wants to fight than France, hut England will fight, even for honor, when pressed to It. Fighting Is a more serious matter to her than to any other nation. She has more to venture, and consequently more to lose, than any other, and that is why she must be pushed to the wall before she will fight; but once against the wall she'll fight, and she'll hurt. But France has no fight left in her. and will not have till she grows another Henry of Navarre, or a Richelieu or a Louvola, and It takes the France of chivalry to cut that caper. It may be depended upon that Japan "'ll do as she pleases with Korea and Manchuria, and that England will stand by her in whatever she does oooooooooooooooooooooooooo o Try an _ O ICE CREAM SODA O O It Q o the SUOARU Ö oooooooooexyinooooooooooooo insurance company is a tower of strength, that it can be as forceful and helpful as the strongest bank, and that if properly conducted, an insurance company is a blessing to all who share its profits, policyholders as well as stock holders. The people appreciate more and more the strength and value of Insurance, and that which has been mosf clearly brought out is the need for the conservative man agement of an institution which asks the faith of its patrons and becomes so great a measure for good or evil. The in surance companies are safe enough. No sensible man doubts that. It is method, not resources, that the public is most interested in now. HEADED OFF DEFICIT. As a result of legislation engrafted on the appropriation bills by James A. Hemenway, of Indiana, congress, at the next session, will not be asked to make good any deficits. Never before in the history of the government has there ever been a session of congress when the legislative branch was not asked to appropriate money to meet departmental deficits. The law proposed and pushed through congress by Mr. Hemenway provides punishment for officers who make any contracts or obligations for futur» payments in excess of appropriations. The act is being strictly ob served in every department. For instance, the postoffice department has Just sent out a notice to all postmasters that no more requisitions for special request envelopes can be honored this year. The reason given is that the money available for sucrt supplies has been exhausted, and that on account of the law postmasters" requisitions cannot be filled until the beginning of the new fiscal year, when another appropriation becomes available. The heat wave In the eastern states is causing its annual harvest of deaths, bringing up the average somewhat above that of late years. The maximum of the hot wave does not reach the maximum of the summer temperature in many places west of the mountains but here not a single prostra tion is recorded. The difference is caused by the difference In humidity, the relative humidity being far lower in the Inter mountain region of the Pacific coast. While the tem- j perature In Lewiston yesterday reached a maximum of 105 the humidity was only 65. On the other hand when the tem perature in the eastern states reached 95 the humidity In many places reached as high as 95 per cent, and it Is the high temperature as compared with the relative humidity that makes the difference In results. A low per cent of hu midity allows a rapid radiation of the heat, thus It Is the nights are cooler In the west and the daily range of tempe rature Is greater The daily range in the Lewiston valley is often greater than 40 per cent. A. day of torrid heat will be followed by a cool, refreshing night, giving recuperation for the body fngged by the beat of the day The Williamson Jury disagreed and a new trial was set for the next day. Uncle Sam Is dreadfully in earnest In the prosecution of the land fraud cases. The evidence he has plied up is monumental. He purposes to convict the big I men and make a salutory example for the coming genera | tions, and his purpose Is not to be thwarted by the dis ' agreement of one Jury, nor two nor ten. There will be j vigorous unyielding prosecution, for when Uncle Sam gets started he gets the habit and stays started till the goal is ! reached. This is the good old summer time, just what the farmer needs in his business. He is not kicking now. Neither should the merchant kick nor the dwellers in the cities and towns, for the golden harvest now being gathere'd from the fields means good times coming. Keeping others from making money seems to give some people as much pleasure as making it themselves. it would seem that Uncle Fam is no respeetor of pocket books. LAND COMMISSIONERS MEET.

The state land board was in session yesterday morning. with Governor Gooding, Fei retar> of State Gibson, Attorney General Ouheeti and Regis ter McConnel present, says the Boise Statesman.

On motion duly made and carried, warrants were ordered drawn in favor of the chairman of the board for the above amounts on the various funds as stated above in payment of said bonds. A Golden Avalanche. When Gov. Mickey of Nebraska told Tom Dawson to sell what he has and give to the poor, or. to be more literal, advised him to give away as large a percentage of his personal fortune as Rockefeller is giving, he may have spoken words of a greater import than he knew. For Mr. Lawson is giving evidence of having taken the case un der advisement. Mr. Lawson is re ported to have said in an address at a banquet given by the Commercial club of Minneapolis: "I have several millions myself, and wronged the American people in g :tting it. But I did not know it at the time. When the time comes I will give the money back to them." This, of course, is rather Indefinite. It leaves too much option in the hands of Lawson as to determining "when the time comes." Gov. Mickey might again quote Scripture to Lawson and advise him that "now is the accepted time;" but the governor may congratu late himself upon being the first to wring a public avowal from Lawson that he considers it necessary to trump the Rockefeller trick of giving away money. There are many men of large wealth In the country who are Joining In the hue and cry against Rockefeller who have never given the least evi dence of his desire to make restitution. Tf they wage any war with the money lust, it is the lust which is always vlc tor slnce they never give the least evidence of having prevailed. Mr. Law son Is one of this class. He has for many years l>een accumulating wealth in speculations, hi lines being some times those of the Standard Oil com pany and sometimes opposite ones, but always and everywhere parallel with the interest of Lawson and expressing the idea of ''the public be damned." though the contract had not been let, The new brick block to be erected by Hazen Squier and J. Q. Moxley on the site of the recent fire, will be a three story building with a 75 foot front, and the work on the structure will begin as soon as the neeessarv arrangements ean be made. John M. Fix will also erect a three-story brick on his prop erty and it was reported that the con tract for the construction of the-build ing was let yesterday, but Mr. Fix was seen this afternoon and said that al he expected It would be within the next few days. Capt. Rawlings and two sons are In the city from Medford, southern Ore gon. Mr. Rawlings recently sold his farm near Medford and realized close to $100 per acre for it. He nnd his sons came to Lewiston with the Inten tion of buying property, but have de cided to return to the coast and will leave In a short time. Mr. Rawlings thinks the Lewiston valley is a fine country and that Lewiston will some day be a great city. He is an old sol dier of the civil war. being captain of company F. Twenty-third Iowa, and did most of his campaigning In Louis iana and Mississippi. He delights In relating some of the exciting incidents of that time nnd although 72 years of age. he looks much younger and says he feels as spry ns a man of thirty. A mammoth traction engine passed through the streets this morning en route to the John Inghram place, where It Is to be given a trial in haul ing Mr. Inghram's big combined har vester and thresher. The engine is a 50-horsepower Russell of the most modern pattern and wil no doubt make good in Its work here, as these ma chines have elsewhere. The initial cost Is $7,000. Louis Delsol, local agent for the Russell people, sent out the machine and Clark Russell was sent to operate the throttle. Mr. Inghram is now running the combined with horse power an<j is employing 32 horses for the task. For Sale.——Butcher shop; : complete outfit. Call at 790 Main street. lm Alters Losing your hair?
