A few days ago the Boise Statesman, the Portland Ore gonian and a number of other newspapers, published the following special dispatch from Washington: "Washington, July 14 — Senator Heyburn has written to Chief Forester Pinchot half way apologizing for his violent opposition to the recent establishment of forest reserves In Idaho and Indicating that he will desist In his fight on the administration. -Senator Heyburn does not go so far as to i ! accept the adm inistration's views and policies aa correct, but j ther«"Is confidence among forestry officials that there will toe | no more trouble about creating reserves In Idaho whenever j the circumstances Justify. It Is Inferred that Senator Iley- i burn will not carry his fight Into the senate next winter, a? he had threatened to do, especially as he now admits that much of his past opposition to the policy was based on an Improper understanding of the facts." In yesterday's Issue the Boise Statesman published the following letter from Senator Heyburn, in regard to the above dispatch: "Wallace, Idaho, July 17, 1905.—Idaho Dally Statesman, Boise, Idaho. Dear Sirs: A special dispatch in your papei of July 15, purporting to be from Washington, headed, 'Hey burn to Drop Forest Reserve Fight' Is a mendacious false hood containing no true statement as to what I have done or Intend to do. "In the first place, I have not written to the chief for ester, Gifford Pinchot, half way apologizing or apologizing in any degree whatever for my opposition to the recent estab lishment of forest reserves in Idaho. I have not Indicated that I will desist In my opposition thereto, I will carry my opposition Into congress at the next session. I have not ad mitted that much, or any. of my past opposition to the president was based upon an improper understanding of the facts. "I do not know from what source this "special dispatch' emanated.'. I assume It a "special dispatch" to your paper, the author of which Is riot disclosed. It is a cowardly false hood from beginning to end. and belongs strictly to that class of falsehoods from which the author withholds his signature. Yours truly , W. B. HEYBURN Both the Statesman and the Oregonian attempt a deferisi by making tierce personal attacks on Senator Heyburn. but It is notable that both admit that their dispatches were wrong; that Senator Heyburn never wrote to Chief Forestei Pinchot at all; that his letter was, in fact, to the president. It is noticeable, too, that neither of them publish the Sena tor's letter or even attempt to tell what h < said in it. theli ] something,—Pocatello Tribune. only attempts at Justification are attacks on Senator Hey Ifurn, "hat certain unnamed forestry officials say and an allegation that Senator Hey burn s private secretary said CITIZENSHIP.* Two hundred thousand year.

This xpialns the fact that, while this country has a large foreign balance of trade In its favor, somehow the gold reserves do not increase correspondingly We do not complain that Americans go abroad. There is a great deni of education (e the thouglftful man or woman In travel. To the thoug'ul'ul American who goes abroad It Is n tenir In the school of patriotism, for such an one in variably returns a better American than when lie went away, for he does not fail :o see the vast advantages which our country possesses ov-r every other land on earth, and he realizes why a million people annually drift away from their native homes In Great Britain and on t^ie continent t.> come to our country. And this impels the thought that this difference between Our own and every other land should be more carefully taught In our schools. The difference between the princi ples that govern should be impressed upon the mind of every child, for that will kindle patriotism In the hearts of the people, and patriotism is the only real salvation of a nation. Another thought should follow. That is. that while two hundred ttuAisand Americans are able to go abroad, there are several millions left at home who are not prospering and against whom the door of opportunity seems closed.

W H Ml There are a thousand missionary organizations In the world, tiut how many societies are working to move the surplus population In some sections out where they can find em ployment and make homes? What would not the $200,000, 000 carried abroad this year, mostly by pleasure seekers, accomplish if used to make homes for the very poor of the land, for those who have lost hope? The list of crimes and suicides published In the dally papers are convincing proof that all the people of this country are not doing all they can to make our country great and Its people better. The chief place for work Is In the schools. If every child could go out from school with the belief that ours Is the very best country and under the very best government in the world, and if their brains and hands could have received the reeded training to equip them for useful work, there would be less crimes, more happiness, and with the happt ness more patriotism than there is now. The strength of our country rests In the quality of the citizenship of the people. There should be a concerted ef fort to exalt that citizenship.—Goodwin's Weekly. THE "POPULAR" BOOKS. V voting contest on the twelve most pm, | ir books has just been concluded by the New York Globe. The winning dozen is here given In the order of the votes received: "The Masquerader," by Katherine Cecil Thurston; "The Marriage of William Ashe," by Mrs. Humphrey Ward; "Beverly of Graustark." by George Barr McCutcheon; "In the Bishop's Carriage," bv Miriam Nicholson; "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm," by Kate Douglas Wlggin; "Nancy Stair," by Eleanor McCartney Lane; "The Clansman," by Rev.

The kittle Shepherd of Kingdom Come." by John j Fox Jr i j t cannot ^e denied that light literature has a hold upon the people. Every novel in the class here named may be so called. Few are sufficiently heavy to be classed, even, as problem stories. Here In tills list is represented the froth of modern writing, the tinsel and the baubles. Save for the characters of Kate Douglas Wlggin, the Ku Klux Klan revelations of Mr. Dixon's "Clansman" and the ex cellent sentimental study in "The Little Shepherd of King dom Come," the list represents nothing more than "good stories." They are called good because they are bright, breezy and entertaining. Just as the theater-going public has been mad over musical comedy, so the reading public runs to stories of the lighter class. Busy me^ and women worried by social cares, sa the substantial in literature order that they may find rest and recreation pace of the commercial world and the society whirl are responsible for It. Deliberation and reflection, calm and poise are so rare that Dr. Johnson and Emerson and otheis of their great kind might as well not have existed, so far as the good their writings are doing the majority of present day folk Is concerned.

Yesterday was the sixth consecutive day that the maxi- ■ mum temperature as registered at the government station 1 showed over the century mark. This has been one of the most remarkable heat waves that ever swept over the country and the most severe In the history of the weather bureau service here. While the temperature has often •reached as high a mark it has never held there without a | hr e;,k as has been done at this time. j The question of damage to the growing crops has been , . 1 variously estimated, hut the consensus of opinion is that I , 1 the damage has been severe on the late sown spring grain j ] H here the crop is cut anywhere from 20 to 50 per cent. But j ' owing to the splendid weather conditions that prevailed in I t he earlier part of the season very little of the grain Is In j j (he late sown class and the resulting damage is therefore! tit down to a comparatively small amount of the entire, rop. The crop of late spring grain is estimated at not to I xoeed from It) to 16 per cent of the entire crop and a loss ! f even 50 per cent of this would not lie a severe loss to] ountry. is in t.> of of two I th AM the fall sown grain and the early spring sowing has l.eea so far advanced that there Is little or no damage to that, and the damage on late spring grain Is confined to ! the high altitudes where the season ts later than in the I lower country about Lewiston. In a radius of 20 miles of this ! place the crop is hardly affected by the severe heat. The grain had all full\ matured and a great portion of It har | vested. Severe iieat accompanied by hot winds is one of the draw - backs to tlie crops of this section and as the results always affect the late sown grain the most conservative farmer Is ! driven to the conclusion that fall sowing Is the only safe the method of farming. Spring sowing, especially when season ts late, is taking the long chance to get returns flclent to pay for the expenditure of putting In the crop. ! sef Tliere ts no lack of water supply In Lewiston this summer ofr which the citizens ar truly thankfuL The water system new seems adequate for the city's needs though there are many things to hope for In the quality of the supply from a sanitary standpoint.

J Public Sentiment with Senator Hey burn. (Wallace Press.) Senator Heyburn is not opposing the policy of preserving the public forests from fire and waste, but demands that while the government shall do these things, it shall still leave the public forests and vast areas of land con tained In these reservations open to bona fide settlement. He has con tended for nothing more than this at any time, and he contends for no more now. He objects to the executive de partment of the government withdraw ing one-fourth of the area of the state from settlement and use by the crea tion of forest reserves wÿlch under the executive rules last published not offer no Inducement to settlers only within them, but so diminish the pres ent and future wealth of the state as to be a detriment to immigration Into the portions of the state outside the reservations. The forest reserves have taken from the state school lands rep resenting a value of over seven mil lion dollars in Nos. 16 and 36 sections and the first reserves have cut the state in two from east to west. They have diminished counties below the constitutional limit In area; they have diminished present and future income from taxable property to the extent of the vast areas withdrawn. They have rendered valueless the state wag on roads already constructed through the areas recently withdrawn, which rondo were built for the express pur pose of opening up to settlement the very lands withdrawn. The boast of nn "Inland Empire" in central Idaho that should represent great settle rnentc of prosperous people and a land of homes, has been converted from a possibility into a dream. But the peo- j pie of Idaho will never rest until the existing condition is changed, and not withstanding the Oregonian's voptn tnry assumption of the guardianship of Td;V>n and Us prophesy of evil to those who oppose it Idaho will continue heritage of wealth tn » rnr Hip heritage or weann m Citizenship natural resources and de velopment guaranteed her when she was made a state. Senator Heyburn] represents the sentiment of 90 per cent of the people of Idaho in his position on the forest reserve question, and lie will be upheld by the people for his I action In that regard. His action rep I resents the best interest of this and | succeeding generations iu the uphold j log of the state and Us people. What Is It Worth? (Troy News.) How much is an extension of 20 years in the time in which the Pot latch Lumber company must remove their holdings from state lands worth? This, is a most interesting question and one not yet finally disposed of In Idaho politics. In the Spokesman-Review of last Sunday William Dunbar, presi dent of the Exchange hank, at Coeur d'Alene City, was reported as saying: "The demand Is greater than the mills of the country can supply. This city, w ith Harrison and Spokane, turns ' out 156,000,000 feet of lumber a year, I but still the timber is increasing faster i than it is cut. Timber Increases S per j cent a year In this region, and the re- j glon Is so extensive that this Increase ] is more than the amount which ts an- i nually out." ^ ^ r ' ^ > °" ai knows anything about 1 this subject he has certainly furnish- ' I . ....... „ j led some interesting information.
