heard asking Deputy Sheriff Charles
Ferris what It would cost him to se
cure a divorce, and It is understood
that Mrs. Thomas is agreeable to sucli

farm in partnership with his brother
in-law out near Cottonwood.

Jim Robertson of Grangeville-Stites
Stage Has Exciting Experience.
The stage road between Orangeville
and Stiles is in very bad condition, and

there this morning reports a rough
Several times I came near being
thrown from the stage," said Mr. Tem
pleton. "Once only the curtains saved
me from a mud bath. It was but a
few minutes after that when we struck
another deep chuck hole, and I heard
the driver screaming.
"Pushing aside the curtain I saw the
driver, Jim Robertson, had been
thrown from his seat, and with his boot
caught in the brake he was being
dragged along, with good chances of
being killed. I immediately jumped out
and stopped the horses, or the accident
would likely have resulted seriously for
The second stage had but one pas
senger, but he was thrown out several
times on the trip, and Mr. Templeton
says on reaching Stltes last night he
never before saw anyone so completely
plastered with mud as was this passen

Mr. Templeton will look after some
horses he has been working on the
Sweetwater ditch, and expects to leave
overland for Enterprise, where he will
visit his brother Harry, before contin

Washington, Dec. 4.—At noon. De
cember 9. the battleship Idaho, of 13,
000 tons burden and sister ship to the
Mississippi, of the same tonnage, will
slide off tiie ways at the Cramp ship
building yards in Philadelphia, and
thus be the twenty-fourth first-class
battleship launched by the government
sinee the advent of the new American
navy. It will be a momentous day, be
cause Idaho will probably be represent

ernor Gooding and his staff and family,
including Louise Gooding, the gover
nor's 15 year old daughter, who will
christen the ship, and a delegation of
favorite sons of the state will he there,
among them Senators Heyburn and
Dubois and Congressman French. The
day will be marked with several patri
otic speeches and, as is customary,
Senator Dubois ns the senior senator
from Idaho, will be the principal speak
er. He will be followed by Senator
Heyburn and Congressman French,
who will make short addresses. Gov
ernor Gooding may also make a few re
A buffet lunch by the Cramp Ship
building Company in honor of the oc
casion will follow and the party will
then make a tour of inspection of the
yards, and in the evening a banquet
will be given, with Senators and Mrs.
Heyburn as hosts, when more speeches
and toasts will be in order. True
western hospitality will mark the oc
casion in every way and the occasion
will be a memorable one. The bat
tleship Idaho Is of a type that on
first appearance closely resembles the
ill-fated Maine. However, the ship Is
a much larger one. has finer lines, and
looks every bit an ocean greyhound.
Unlike the Maine, there Is nothing
about the ship to suggest a fighting
tut). Her lines are graceful and in
dicative of great speed. When com
pleted her cost will approximate $6,
225.000. Her hull and machinery alone
will cost $3.000,000.
When the big battleship Idaho goes
into commission, which will not be
for some time to come, because under
the contract she was to be completed at
the outside on May 25. 1907, she will
have a complement of 34 officers and
691 men. The steaming radius of the
Idaho class of battleships will be lerger
than that of any other American bat
tleship afloat. It is estimated she will
have a steaming radius of 10 knots,
'»775 nautical miles. These figures will
be appreciated when it is stated that
the steaming radius of the famed bat
tleship Oregon is only 5300 miles. The
Idaho is 382 feet long, 77 feet wide and
has a mean draft of 24 feet. 8 inches.
She is expected to develop a speed of 17
knots and will have a bunker capacity
of 1750 tons. The indicated horse
power of the battleship's propelling
machinery and its auxiliaries on trial
will be 10,000. The ship will be lighted
by electricity throughout and electric
ity will be used for the coal and cart
ridge lifts and to automatically close
the watertight compartments. In fact,
electricity will supplant steam wher
ever practical. The ship also will have
a complete telephone system and all of
the conveniences consistent with the
construction of a fighting craft. Par
ticular attention will be paid to the
construction of the crew's quarters.
They will he placed as far away from
the boilers and engine rooms as is pos
sible. Immense ventilators and electric
fans will be installed everywhere to
keep down the heat in the boiler rooms
and other parts of the ship, thus mak
ing the life of the men below decks a
happier lot In summer.
The batteries of the Idaho will con
sist of a main battery of four 12-inch
breech-loading rifles; eight 8-Inch
breech-loading rifles mounted In tur
rets. The principal broadside batteries
will consist of eight 7-inch breech
loading rifles, while the secondary bat
teries will consist of twelve 3-Inch
rapid fire guns, six 3-inch guns, four
1-pounder rapid fire guns, two 3-inch
guns, eight 30-calibre rapid firing ma
chine and automatic guns. In addition
to the heavy armament -the ship will
be supplied with two 18-Inch sub
merged torpedo tubes. Her armor will
have a uniform thickness of nine in
ches at the top. bottom and water line.
The armor of the batteries will follow
from 6 to 12 Inches, and from 8 to 12
Inches of the barbettes.
The Idaho will be furnished with
eight water-tube Babcock and Wilcox

School Boy Fined $10.
For assaulting the Santos lad, while
engaged in a schoolboy initiation. Vern
Van Arsdol was fined $10 and costs,
amounting in all to $60. by Justice
Neyland, Saturday. The assault for
which Van Arsdol has been fined, was
committed on the night of November
12. This seems to have been a school
boy prank in which several boys were
engaged. Santos was on his way home
from church when the boys met him
and told him they would initiate him
into their society. They took him over
by the sohoolhouse fence and used a
board on his back. The other boys
connected with the ease will have their
trial Saturday, December 9.
