Borah Pleads For Settlers In a speech delivered in the senate on May 14 Senator Borah of Idaho made a strong appeal for the enactment of lenient land laws in order to relieve (he burdci, upon the settler and to facilitate the development of the remaining pub lie lands of the west which are suseep tiblc of cultivation and improvement. While speaking particularly with refer- ) ei.ee to the homestead law. Senator Borah referred also to other public land laws, and to the question of conserva He paid his respects to those tion. theorists who have done so much in late years to prevent,.the. passage of sensible land laws, and maintained that the average western citizen is a better conservationist than his eastern brother of the practical working of this recently developed policy. " III part Senator Borah said: "Mr. President, several months ago a hill was put upon its passage through the congress having for its purpose the amelioration of the harsh terms of the law under which the settlers arë now who knows nothin; y seeking to secure homes upon the pub lic domain. It passed this body. With some amendments it passed the house. It is now resting in conference, where it has been for weeks. Its friends are by no means satisfied with the outlook for its becoming a law at this session, It has been opposed from the beginning by the secretary of the interior. It has been sought to be amended and emas culated by all that class of men who proceed upon the suspicion that every citizen who seeks through months and years of adversity and hardship to carve a home from the desert is a crim inal. I am sure if these men were there to see, if they could know the relentless way in which the government has pur sued the homesteader for years, the annoyance, the delay to which he is sulijected, the price he pays in labor and effort lor his land, that they as honest and well meaning men would change their minds." , "There are some fdw men, Mr. I'resi dent, so imbued witli the worth oftheir own self-sufficient, all-sufficient, insulfi cicut knowledge that iwrliaps seeing tin'situation and realizing that I here existed a different conditiu» from that which they assumed would only irritate and umkc revengeful their offended wisdom. There are a few others whose suspicious natures resent all facts which do not I'll their precon ceived determination to adjudge all men except themselves dishonest. But it has pleased Divine Providence to arflict this earth with hut few of either of these classes. Mosl men want to know the facts, and knowing flic facts, have the courage to accept them and be governed by them. "Now, what are the faets? We are no longer giving homes upon the rich prairies of the great Missippi valléy. The settler must now seek I he arid lands iu that country which stood for half a century, marked upon our maps as the great American desert. When reclaimed, 1 grant you, these lands are fertile. When reduced to habitation I concede they make homes as desirable as anywhere under the shining sun But it takes labor ami much of it," it takes patience, endurance, more than most men are willing to give, it noces situtes submission to isolation, to ad versity, to hardship, to depriving often times tile family of schools, in order to reclaim lliose lands, which as it lies there is wholly worthless, which serves no onc i ' lld t >a > s taxcs to the gov f" 4 ment ' H« a dry, barren sotl.. 01 tontl,m ' s for several seasons you can no * J™"-' a , tT ° P untl1 ÜK ' aol ' becomes settled , !lnd f m P act - 1 have see " a cro >' P la >y today, and tomorrow it 1,0 10 ™ ,es nway ' ' own lh,tlu ' r ) tll( ' winds-actually blown out ol tho ™> d - ' he settler must not only build his house and make his improvc menls, clear the land ol sage-brush, 1( ut he must either build a ditch at heavy expense, tir pay more heavily I assert Lir othersto; build it for them, that no man reclaims this land who does not pay every dollar it is worth in d,e labor which he must expend in do ' n K K0 - " No man gets title to a homestead or dessert entry who does not give evi dence a hundred times over ot his good Laitli, or bis bona fides as a settler and a home builder. Men who talk glibly about giving these men homes do not know the facts. These men by their labor and their sacrifices have changed our worthless arid waste into tax-pay ' n g and valuable properties, but they bave paid lor them in their labor, Wilat does this government have these ' ands for tor jack rabbits and tor coyotes or tor men? If for men, is not be a good citizen to be commended and not condemned who takes such property and makes it by his own ef fort a valuable estate. Would you have your lands lie idle while your citizens crowd more and more into effort a valuable estate? Would you prefer to continue to increase the number of consuiners and decrease the number of producers.''

And do you think the settlers alone are interested. The entire west is interested. It will no longer he satisfied with promises. Our eastern politicians who make their summer excursions into the west and talk about what tlmy are going to do will have to make j^od their promises. Let me assure them that the west now expect a fulfillment of those promises. The party of Lincoln were rejoiced in the opportunity to sign the first homestead bill should have the fidelity to its original principles, the foresight, the courage, the statesmanship, to put aside the miserable slanders and igno rant libels upon the people of the west and he of assistance to these people who are impoverished and bankrupted and even expatriated in their efforts to secure a home. Is the great republi can party going to contiive at these slanders of the west and bow like a bastinadoed elephant at the crack of the whip from those who sssert that you must make the laws so harsh and impossible as to drive away citizens into Canada in order to keep them from stealing if they remain at home." a r 1st Nolice lo Contractors Notice is hereby given that competi tive sealed bids will he received by the hoard of trustees of school district No. 22, in the county of Clearwater and state of Idaho, up to 8 o'clock p. m. on the 8th day of June, 1912, for the con struction and completion of two one stpry frame school houses, on the school. grounds of said district, in the village of Orofino, according to plans and specifications on file in the office of the undersigned clerk and in the office of R.
