LEWISTON INTER-STATE NEWS
Successor to The Lewiston Teller—Twice-a-Week Lewiston Teller, Established 1876 LEWISTON, IDAHO, TUESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1906 Inter-State News, Vol. 1, No. JUDGE BORAH AGAINST GRAFT ! Meeting .at Portland is Vigorous. _ i ' all His Speech at the Bar Association * n,s ' j to Portland, Aug. 11.—A gathering of the leaders of the bars of the states of the Pacific northwest and the coast took place last night at the American Inn, on the exposition grounds, as an Incident of the convention of law yers now in progress here. The speakers last night were Judge M. J. Gordon, of Spokane, Attorney General Carson of Pennsylvania, Judge Stiles of Seattle, W. E. Borah of Boise and others. Mr. Borah said In part: "Since the reconstruction period fol lowing the civil war, those three men In yonder caucus room have ruled the government, and complacently the peo ple have abdicated In their favor. By the time the ides of November rools around the people have come out en masse to ratify the act of the three men in caucus, but the reins of power are still In the hands of the three men. You cannot secure a hearing up on a measure in congress, you dare j not touch the sacred schedules of the j Dingley bill, vlscious as some of them 1 have grown to be. until you consult | those three men—they are the outposts ! to of the organization. The people have I gone away, the merchant is at his J rounter. the hanker at his desk, the j lawyer with his brief, and they three are the government. "Today we are passing as a nation j through a. period ow shame and cha grin. Tn 26 states of the Union fraud and corruption have been uncovered in high political circles, and investiga tion is actually in progress. At least four of the great departments at Washington are honeycombed with rottenness. Twelve United States sen- i ators are under a cloud. The prent I 1 names of finance, those who count their wealth in millions or tire and i cease to count at nil, are associated In organized pilfering from the widows ' and orphaps of the land. The guilty ' and the innocent are in the cesspool j together. In sackcloth and ashes th» j people are paying the forfeit of their j crime—indifference to the obligations I of citlzennhip. For 30 years the mass of people—busy In getting wealth and too happy and contented to be easily called Into the street—have forgotten that we have a form of government which calls for the vigilance of all the i people all the time. The siren voice of partisanship has talked of loyalty. ' and the business world has talked of conservatism until we have a saturn alia of crime and shame which reaches from one end of the land to the other. Loyalty has too often meant the pro tection of peculator and conserva- | tlsm, of which the laughing fraud qf ■ New York was the most noted dis ciple, has been the cover for his paltry theft of $20.00 a year. "Theodore Roosevelt's public life has been a marvelous one: crowded with stirring Incidents and brilliant achievements: fate and genius have comhlned to make his career the most striking nnd eventful of the age. Or ganizations against which ahle men have fought In vain have yielded to the sway of hts hypnotic power. Po- | Utlcnl hodtes strong In their rights and j teakuis of their power and dignity i have surrendered to his broad and : fearless views. Vast corporate In fluence* Intrenched and protected hy I time and custom have acceded to his Plans. The dead letter of the statute has fait the vitalizing touch of his nestles* and searching energy. "But when all the fruits of hi? matchless endeavors have been gath ered. none will he richer In benefit to the people at large than his word* and acts, putting behind him the false Mrty standard which has obtained for *• years—that the party tn8n can do Bc w rong—and giving. Instead, that F^nty loyalty Is no less than citizen - i "hip with all Its high obligations and ! duties. *No organization, no false theory »bout party loyalty can relieve men from the full obligations of citizenship «r excuse them for Inefficiency. From those who opposed and cynically scof ffld, he appealed to the hosts outside, »•hi winning, proved again that the hflflple are not only capable but sound Bn d loyal."

With the purpose of promoting the j SOUNDINGS BEING MADE FOR RAILROAD BRIDGE Engineers Now Sinking For Location of the Piers —Will Use a Cassion and Go to Bed Rock Other Construction Contracts Let. What to be the first per Steptoe and the remaining seven mils« What appears to be the first per manent work on the bridge across the Clearwater that Is to bring the Lew iston-Ripnrla railroad into the city was begun today. Engineer F. M. Ketten ring, who has had the work of the survey In charge, has men at work to day hinking pits to locate founda tions for the piers for the railroad bridge. These soundings are being taken just above the ferry and indicate that thhe location has been definitely determined at that point. It is the In tention of the engineers to sink to the water level with a pick and shovel and then to put in a steel cassion and, sink to the bedrock. A sand pumping plant has been ordered and will he on the ground in time it is needed. From the general contour of the river bed the matter of securing a firm founda tion to support the bridge ought not lo he difficult. At the point selected the basalt will probably lie not far from the surface and on the Uewiston side the cemented graved will offer a firm foundation should it prove that the bedrock is deeper than is anticipated. The first announcement of sub-con tracts was made yesterday when it was learned that President F. X. I^> Doux, of the Inland Construction com pany. had signed contracts for the con struction of 17 miles of the T.ewiston Rlparin line. The work signed for lies in three different places. The first three miles helng at th's end of the line just west of the bridge site. Then there is a stretch of seven miles at LARGE BUSINESS Post Office Department Haa Stopped' a Fraud Order House. I Washington, i The pnstoffice C„ August 13.— I been decidedly ! busy lately with the fraud order busi ness. This Is a mensure. as Is gener- | ally known, to prohibit the use of malls to anyone guilty of conducting! a fradulant business. It I« a subject j often difficult to handle In print ns the fraudulent operators trv to choose a name as nearly as possible like that of some reputable firm in business and a reference tn the matter at ail generally bring« out a protest from the innocent party. Tt appears now however that one Henry De Lacy has been operating a mail business under the title of "The; United States Investment and Broker- ; age company of Omaha." The eon- ) oern offered to loan money up to $10- ) 000.000 on reasonably good security. The source of profit was that the com pany demanded that an advance of one percent from anyone seeking a loan in order to cover the expense of investi gating the security. The whole work ing capital of the concern was only $250 and the one percent advance was all profit to the company which never intended to loan money on anything. The concern has been barred from the use of the malls, and a good many peo ple al over the United States who are looking for a report from the company have to watt for a long time. TRIP WAS IMPOSSIBLE Craw of tho Lowiston Exhaust Every Effort Before Abandoning tho Up-Rivor Trip. for the Lewiston to get up the river, j Fred Lundy, pilot on the steamer Lewlston, returned yesterday from Rl paria where he accompanied the boat on her last trip down the river. Mr. Lundy states that It was Impossible j offield's bar proved to he the barrier to the steamer's progress. There the channel Is very narrow and owing to the boat being rather wide, both sides of the hull touched the river bottom. Every effort was made to cross the bar and the line wa* snapped three times In an endeavor to surmount the difficulty. The attempt to reach Lew Iston was only abandoned after the government boat Wallowa had heen brought Into service and an Inch steel cable passed to the Lewiston which stopped the machinery of the Wallowa In an effort to draw the boat over the bar. When this failed the trip tn Lew iston was abandoned and the steamer returned to Rlparia where she will re main till a higher stage of water. FOR RENT—Two furnished room# a* $75 Main street. tf Steptoe and the remaining seven mils« at Central Ferry at the mouth of Meadow Gulch. Mr. LeDoux was seen yesterday by the News and confirmed the report, saying that he would be In shape by the first of the month to put on all the men who would come for employment. He will put camps at each section and will rush the work as rapidly ns the force of laborers will permit. The harvest rush will be over soon and Mr. Le Doux thinks that plenty of men will be eager to ■seek the permanent employment that will be offered by six month's contract of railroad building now in progress in the Clearwater country. Other announcements of sub-con tracts are expected daily and from the outlook now the work will be in full swing along the whole 78 miles of the line hy the first of September. The Camas prairie extension is not yet definitely located hut rumors confirm thebelief that the Culdesac route will he chosen and the assertion Is still current that there will he a spur Into the Wnha country. Yesterday's report from Rlparia Is to the effect that the first rnlls for the new line will be laid. The first sec tion of the new line is the 25 rods of road lending to the slough above Ri pa rin across which It Is necessary to construct n new steel bridge. The short line laid will enable the pllo driver to he brought o the slough and the piles put In place to support the bridge. BADLY DID8LOCATED SHOULDER Ferdinand Lad Thrown From a Hors# and Treated by X-Ray. It It Is Ralph, the 13-year-old son of Mr j and Mrs. George A. Smith, of Ferdf- i nand. was quite badly Injured Tues- j | day evening hy being thrown from a the'hor«e. says the Cottonwood Chronicle, He was riding along the road when his j horse scored at a dog and turning sud denly pitched him off down hill where he alighted on his shoulder. The l td was brought to town Wednesday and p r . Turner put him under the X-rny. which showed on a badly dislocated ; ) ) shoulder. Dr». Shinnlck and Blake were then called tn consultation and yesterday morning the dislocation was finally reduced. It seems the fall was severe enough to mash the shoulder socket so that the joint would not stay in position and It was with difficulty reset. Tt will he some time before the joint gets back Into position again nnd it is doubtful if the arm ever gets very strong. Proclamation. In historic Interest and importance there Is no other period of equal value In connection with the subduing of the American west, with the eventful Jour ney of T,ow1s and Clark from Missouri to the Pacific coast tn 1865. The pro gress nnd final accomplishment* nf the results fought for bv these sturdy pioneers should excite a feeling of pat riotic loyalty In the hearts of all of us. The wilderness to which they came is no longer a wilderness. Tn It« place has grown up a country rich In Its re sources and possibilities, and even richer In Its eltlzenhood.

BALDWIN BUILDS AN AIRSHIP Will Hava Two Crafts of His Own vantion Contsst at Lswis and Clark Exposition in Flighta. Portland. Aug. 14.—Visitors at the Lewis and Clark Exposition will short ly have the unusual privilege of see ing two alrshtpa. made by the same Inventor, contest in a series of In teresting flights. Captain T. 8. Raid win. whose California Arrow was the only airship to make a really success ful flight at St. Lot^Js. and who has charge of aeronautic doings at the big Coast fair. Is building a new ship, which will be ready to do flight In a week or so. The airship which he built In Portland for use in the expo sition contests, the Angelus, has made several flights. On the occasion of the first flight, a strong wind blew the machine several miles out of her course, and the second was unsuccess ful owing to a breakdown of the ma chinery. She proved readily steerable however except In a stiff wind. The new ship Baldwin Is building, which probably will be called the Rose Queen, Is being constructed on lines similar to those of the Angelus and the Arrow, but it will be considerably smaller than the ship which the in ventor has been using this season. The Angelus holds 16,000 feet of gas and has a 52 foot carriage, and the Rose Queen will hold only 9,000 feet of gas. and will be fitted with a 20 foot car. It Is thought that perhaps the smaller gas bag. offering less resistance to the wind, will enable the ship tn navigate with less Interference from adverse air currents. Besides the two Baldwin airships, there is a third machine al the exposi tion which, while ns yet of unestab ltshed merit, is expected to do thing*. It Is known as the Gelatin. Is the In vention of Charles B. Knox, a wealthy manufacturer of Syracuse, N. Y„ and Is manned hy George L. Thomlinson. Thomllnson thinks that the Gelatin will prove airworthy, and people who have seen the ship agree with him. The Gelatin Is built somewhat on the Baldwin plan, with a cigar shaped gas hag to provide lifting power nnd n gasoline engine lo supply the propell ing force, but differs In Important de. tails of construction. The shin wo« Wrecked on Its way 1 <j Portland, hut Is being put In eondlflon as rapidly as possible. j i j Something Doing.
