MONTPELIER EXAMINER PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY THE Examiner Publishing Co., Ltd. C. E. W RIGHT, Editor and Manager I $1 50 75 SUBSCRIPTION RATES Ona year. Six months, if paid in advance.... Tntered at the postoffiee af Montpelier. Idaho, as second class matter. Montpelier, Idaho, Oct. 11, 1907 TO OUR READERS. This issue of the Examiner is re luced to four pages for the reason that our patents failed to arrive from Salt Lake. They were shipped in due time, hut for some ur »", 301111 ! able reason the railroad com pany has been unable to deliver them. : During the twelve Chairman McLeod of the Western Passenger Association is authority for the stasenient that during the past ten years 272,009 persons have emigrated from the United States to ( anada. months ending June 30, this year, 13,188 persons from the United States made homestead entries in Western Canada. These represent a population of about 32,000. This movement to Canada has been due mainly to the actiyity of agents working in different parts of this country. They have presented al luring pictures of the wonderful possibilities of that country and in every community they found those who were quick to believe the stories. Of the thousands who have gone there, many have been disap pointed and the reports they have sent back have been entirely differ ent from the stories told by the land agents. Obtaining "straw votes" for pres idential candidates is the fad now among the leading newspapers of the eas'. The Chicago Tribune's po\l ot about 1700 prominent repub licans m the eleven middle west stales shows that Secretary Taft is the first choice of 944, the second choice of 322 and the third choice of 158. In Michigan, Minnesota. Iowa and Kansas Taft leads all other possible candidates by a large vote. Illinois, of course, favors "Uncle Joe" Cannon, with Taft as second choice. The Indiana vote shows Fairbanks first and Taft as second choice. Of the 1734 republicans who expressed themsclyes, 1509 ap prove the progressive policies of the president, 1435 expressed them selves as favoring a progressive man for Roosevelt's successor, while 170 favor a more conservative man. It is evident that the republicans of those Btates believe that Roosevelt is not a candidate for re-nq^iination, as only 158 in the Tribune's poll place him as their first choice. On the basis of its returns, the Tribune figures that Taft will have 100 votes from these eleven states on the first ballot in the national convention 270 votes on tne second ballot. The New York Times recently polled the leading democratic edit ors of the south and with two ex ceptions all expressed themselves as preferring that some man other than Bryan should be nominated by the democrats. They wiH, of course, support Bryan if he is nominated but he is not their first choice. There is no tclliDg what men will do these days. Every now and then we hear of some man, m whom his community had reposed the greatest confidence, going wrong, times there is "a woman in the case" and other times it is the "greed for Some sold" that causes their downfall. The other day in Denver a young man stole $3000 from the Northern Coal & Coke Co., and then reported that he had been robbed. Later he confessed to having stolen the money and took the officers to where he had cached it away. The young man was a member of the Y. M. C. A., and a leader in the Baptist church. He had held the position of pay master for the coal company for several years, and had been sent on his regular monthly trip to pay off the miners, when the thought came to him of stealing the money and telling his employers that he had bejii held up. The young man was soon to have been married and the desire for a "little extra money" with which to carry him through that important event became so strong within him that he could not resist the temptation to obtain it in a way which he thought would be easy and no one would be the wiser. But when the officers began ques tioning him closely for descriptions of the alleged robbers and other faclB in connection with the alleged hold-up, he became so conscience stricken that he broke down and told the story of his crime, mg the position he did, that young man had a comparatively bright future before him, but it has been swept away and he will go through life bearing a stain that time will not efface. The good name and standing he had held among his circle of friends for years was lost in a moment's time. Other young men should profit by his experience, but many of them will Dot—they will 111 one way or another continue to unlawfully accumulate wealth and when they reach the point where they think they are about to enjoy the fruits of their ill-gotten gains, the world finds out their sins and they are made to pay the penalty of their crimes. Hold State Fish Hatchery. Blaine county has been selected as the site for the state fisn hatch ery, which will be located on a trib utary to Silver creak, one of the state's Lest tiout streams. Wood river branch of the Oregon Short Line will afford a means of transportation, and the hatchery headquarters will lie near Hay Spur. Sixty acres of land are to be pur chased and in all probability this will afford a range for pheasants, also for the present, providing slock can be secured. These birds will he raised for distribution in the var ious localities over the state where the conditions are favorable and when the other proposed game parks are established will afford birds for stocking the same. Superintendent-elect Stiles, who is to have charge of the new hatch ery, was for years connected with the government service and is con sidered an expert in handling the finny tribe, lie lias been conduct ing some experiments at the adopted site for several weeks, taking tem peratures of water, making tests of the water supply, and inquiring in to the general conditions at various times in the year. He was so well pleased with the location that he reported the site as ideal. As soon as the necessary arrange nieuts can be made the hatchery a ill be stocked and it is expected that the first distribution of seed fish will be made next spring. Many sites have been suggested and the consideration of them all has required many months, and the selection is made after a most care ful investigation. Borne of the pro posed sites had advantages in some respects over Blaine county, but there the general conditions were The superior to any of the sites available at this time. Above St. Anthony the conditions were the best in the state unques tionably, but as the tract is in the national forest reserve it could not be availed of at .his time, and though there are prospects in the near future for a railroad extension that would afford shipping facilities, that also was a drawback to the Fremont county site for the present. The natural ranges for birds and game iig connection wiih the site there have impressed themselves on Governor Gooding and the officers of the department and it is the plan to bring the matter of an allotment of lands from the forest reserve to the state for the purpose of estab lishing a state game park before the next ses«ion of congress. The pro pagation of both fish and game will be conducted in connection with such a reserve and a similar park is under consideration for the northern part of the state.—Statesman. Improve Aspen Tunnel. The Asp"n tunnel of the Union Pacific, a few miles east of this place, is to be lighted by electricity from a plant fixated near one of the portals. This tunnel is the longest on the Union Pacific system, being more than a mile in length, and as trains proceed slowly while passing through, the passengers are in darkness for several minutes. Incandescent electric lights are to be placed along the walls of the bore and when the plant is in operation trains will be almost as brightly illuminated while in the tunnel as when in the open. Other improvements are also to lie made to the tunnel, including strengthening with reinforced concrete. This week a party of the leading U. P. officials, together with some government inspectors made an examination as to the safety of the tunnel and looking to the above improvements, but we are not able to learn at this time as to what steps are to be taken.

On almost every bill of fare are seen the words "porterhouse steak." Mow, most people know what a por terhouse steak is, having on some oc casion eaten one, or at least a piece of beef that went by that name, but few people know how the name Itself originated. Years ago there was a hostlery near Harvard university kept by a man named Porter. Soon this (avern became famous for Its viands, especially for Its cuts of meats. The stranger stopping there for a meal and not knowing exactly what to or .der would be advised by his genial host, Mr. Porter, to order a steak. So good were his steaks that travelers often spoke of them, and gradually began referring to them as the "steak you get at Porter's house." From that It was but a short time before they were referred to as the "porter house steak." butchers all over the country have found out the way in which Mr. Por ter cut his famous steak, and have been making the same cuts them selves, hence the porterhouse steak has been served the country over. Only a month or so ago the old Por ter house was moved back to make room for a row of tenement houses that are now being built in front of it. Since then Manila Rope. A Manila rope, properly laid and lubricated, is as strong, weight for weight, as steel; that is, a steel rod weighs about eight times as much as a manila rope of the same diameter, and has about eight times the strength, the strengths being propor tioned to the weights. When used for transmission purposes it has been found that a manila rope one inch in diameter is equal to a double leather belt two five-eights Inches in width, so that three such ropes are very nearly equal to an eight-inch double belt. A two-inch rope, says Cas sier's Magazine, will transmit as much power as a ten-inch leather belt, while the loss from stiffness and creep are estimated as only about one ! half with the rope what they are with the belt. - Discreet. ■ Is he a man of discretion?"
