Or.ifino, Idaho, July 18 1912 .1 .05 The county board set aside ; $500 fund this year to investigab and estimate the value of certain property in the county open foi assessment. In this there is a slight reversal of last year's policy when Joe investigated and esti mated at the expense of the tim ber companies and tin* taxpayei incidentally. Uncle Sam has finally come t< the conclusion it is worth while to give the homesteader some con sideration. He is showing somi signs of wanting to keep him here instead of forcing him to go to Canada. The new homestead law is much liberalized and will induct many people to go on a home stead, who otherwise would not have cared to undertake the bur dens incident to develop a place. It will give a great impetus to homesteading in Idaho and bring thousands of people who other wise would not have come out. Senator Borah and Congressman French are deserving the everlast ing gratitude of every Idahoan for their good work.—Albion Nug get. The republicans of Idaho should not forget that Canyon stands right at the head when it comes to showing a hig republican ma jority. Other counties may switch around more or less, hut Canyon is always steadfast and election returns each year show that it has come through with the usual 1500 majority for the republican ticket. With such showing as it has been able to make Canyon county is entitled to be heard when it is asking for anything at the hands of the party. No state officer has come from this county for many years. Now that it is asking for recognition there should be no opposition to its just claims. Especially is this true when it presents but one candi date and he is a man of well known ability and integrity. The Leader-Herald feels that O. M. Van l)uyn is entitled to the re publican nomination for attorney general without opposition.— Nampa Leader-Herald. The remarks of Senator Baily of Texas, made to a gathering of . . , .. ...... . friends recently at Washington, D. C., are food for reflection. And the funny part of the play is that Senator Baily lays the whole blame of the riotous condition of tile country onto the impatient minor ity of which he was a member. The poor old Tribune, whose editor never was in a position to be criticized, having been no doubt a nonentity all bis news paper life, seeks to make capital from the fact that four years ago we criticized Senator Borah, for using his prestige at Boise to de feat the county division bills then pending in the legislature. We think today, as we thought then, that Senator Borah was an object for criticism. But the poor Tri bune, with its debilitated manage ment and colicky old editor, whose only vocation seems to he to cuckoo every time lie sees his master on the corner, seems to have no idea of the value of a newspaper to a community it serves honestly and faithfully. To criticise public men when they de serve it and to guard the interests of a community you serve seems to have no part in the creed of the Tribune, whose only mission so far as it appears on the outside is to rail at the octopus, for the benefit of the farmers, whil? its owners are arranging the matter of "burns" with the owners of the timber companies. now if trie minority lias unjustly nis judged the majority, (the re uibliean party ) then we think here is small cause for apprehen iion, as the majority do and should ule. We think the discontent es deeper than the cause given V Senator Baity. Senator Baily, must be remembered, w'as night "dead to rights" with the standard Oil company sonit months ago and perhaps his mind is prejudiced somewhat. Anyway we believe it was just such bar gains as Senator Baily is accused of making with the Standard Oil c nnpany that is at the foundation o'the present rebellious attitude of the American people, elimination of such men as Baily from the senate will do more to allay the discontent now prevail ing than any other one thing now imposed by the so-called great reformers. it a The to to We wonder if the quarters of iand reported as "burns" last vear and which were found by the •ounty's estimators as having 2,000,000 feet of timber on them were not the same quarters Brother Joe reported and Brother lohn accepted as "burns" last year? _ 0.

Much interest is being manifested by the Nez Perce Indians in a proposed sale of a portion of their trihal timber. Some of the finest yel low pine of this portion of Idaho is found on the Indian reserves in tiie vicinity of Winchester. With the ex ception of a small amount cut by the Indians for fuel and to supply a small sawmill owned by the tribe no cutting of tliis timber has been done since it was set aside for the Nez Perces about 25 years ago. The proposition now is to sell the merchantable timber on about 2500 acres of the reserve, and clear up and place in cultivation 1400 of this land. Acting under instructions from Wash ington, C. K. Dunston, expert examiner for the Indian bureau, has been making an investigation of the available timber and the probability of placing the land in cultivation when the timber is re moved. It appears that there are ap proximately 40,1X10,000 feet of yellow pine now matured which should be sold. The land is said to be excellent agricultural land and capable of pro ducing from 40 to 50 bushels of wheat to the acre. Much of the land is prac tically level and as farming land would yield an annual cash rental to the In dians of about $5(XX). The estimated value of the merchantable timber is $ 120 , 000 . For many years the Nez Perces have refused to consider the sale of ap portion of their timber of which they hold 32,01X1 acres. At a council this week at the agency, the authorized tribal committee, of which Harrison of KiP-kip-P* 1 -*-^" is chairman, agreed that the timber be sold under rules to b e made by the secretary of the interior, , provided the proceeds of sale be jiaid to the Indians and not held in the United States treasury. Steps were also taken by the Indians, ill consulla tion with Superintendent Theodore Sharp, by which the lauds within the to no ago for de We to his to a it To de of the its the I timber areas not covered with merch antalile timber shall he placed under as cultivation and a permanent revenue derived for the tribe. From this source it is thought, within, a few years, not less than $10,IXX) yearly will be received. The Republican received the follow ing communication from the Hon. Benj. I*. Shawhan of Payette, who takes this method of placing his name before the people of Idaho for nomination on republican ticket for congressman-at arge.
