Her Visible Resources, Facilities and Advant
ai*es Sketches of Her Leading Business
Men. Professional Men and
Prominent Citizens.
The Pkak, in placing before its read
ers a brief history of Fremont, Comity
and ni Vint- a suimnary of the commer
cial and industrial progress of St, An
thony' and many ot its business houses,
is proud indeed, of the record which it
is privileged to submit and accounts it
a pleasure to do so.
Fremont County was formed by a
division of Bingham < onnty and was
first settled by Win. Powell in 1877.
It is 83 miles wide by 123 miles in length
and contains 10,200 square miles, an
area greater than some of the New
England States. It is traversed by the
upper Snake river and its branches
which afford ample water for irrigation
purposes. The soil, of this portion of
the valley is most fertile, being com
posed of a clay loam and a sandy de
composed lava which with a subsoil I
capable of being snbirrigated insures to i
tin' farmer an abundant and varied pro- J
dnotion of crops. Without irrigation
this valley would he used for nothing
hut grazing as the virgin crop is sage
brush with some grass growing about
the roots, but at the meager touch of
water and sunshine the sage brush
withers and dies and the hitherto desert \
is converted into one of the most fertile
regions of the world. Five large irriga
tion canals now traverse this county,
which with their numerous latterals
cover an area of over 300,000 acres and
afford an abundance of moisture to the
growing crops and at a small cost to the
farmer. Being independent of droughts
and floods, the menace of the eastern
agriculturists, he plants his crop with
the full assurance of reaping a bountiful
harvest. The principal productions are
wheat, oats, barley, potatoes, alfalfa
and other tame grasses and fruits of all
kinds. Wheat yields from 30 to 75
bushels per acre and brings an average
of one cent per pound or «»() cents per
bushel; oats from 40 to 110 bushels per
acre sell readily at 40 cents per bushel;
ooo to (ioo bushels of potatoes are not an
uncommon yield; three cuttings of al
falfa Averaging two tons to the acre is a
fair average, while fruits of all kinds
attain a high state of perfection in this
valley. The soil is especially adapted
to the raising of all kinds of bulbous
vegetables, particularly the sugar beet,
and experiments bave shown that the
per eentageof saccharine matter and t lie
co efficient of purity is high. The re
sources of this county are vast and
varied and offer to the hoinesceker and
investor opportunities not surpassed in
the Um. 1 States today. Free home
steads that are desirable are no longer
obtainable, but what, is much better,
cheap deeded land, surrounded by
neighbors and ready for cultivation, can !
be had at prices varying from $10 to $50
an acre according to location and im
provements. With cheap land for the
husbandman, the fruit grower and the
stockman, and homes for thousands of
industrious people in all walks of life,
this is essentially the country for the
man of moderate means and a few years
of thrift and industry are all that are
necessary to place him in the independ
ent position of owning a good farm.
In the mountains east and north an
abundance of large game including elk,
deer, bear, antelope and mountain sheep
'•an be found, while in the rivers the
salmon trout and the beautiful speckled
brook trout exist in countless numbers
and can be had as the reward of skill
and patience. It is the paradise of the
Building material is cheap and plenti
ful in the way of timber, and pink,
brown and blue sandstone of a superior
quality. A good variety of brick is
made from the clay found in the county
while for foundations lava rock may lie
had for a trifle.
Wood for fuel and timber enough for
fences and other purposes may be ob
tained on the foothills and mountains
. , . -,
free of charge, while a nine toot vein of
excellent coal has been opened up in
Tyton basin only 28 miles from St. An
Iii^ny which will insure cheap fuel for
all time to conte.
Situated at the terminus of the O. S.
L. extension 38 miles north of Idaho
Falls and about 30 miles distant front
' the boundary of the Yellowstone Nat
ioual Park is the thriving little city of
St. Anthony, the County Sent of Fre
mont County. It was first settled by
C. H. Moon who gave it its present
name. It grew to be a considerable
f trading point, and the last census gave a
population oi 450. December 7t.h, 1800,
was a red letter day in the history of
the city, being the date on which the
1 *• R- R was completed into St.
Anthony. Since then it lias become the
great distributing point for the country
around Yellowstone Park and Jackson's
Hole and is the outfitting point for all
the tourist travel and hunting and fish
ing parties for the famous scenic and
big game regions of the Upper Snake
uver. its tributaries and the adjoining
country. Today it has a population of
1500 enterprising people and each year
secs substantial additions to her popula
tion and business enterprises. St. An
thony is essentially a city of the present,.
Beautifully located on the banks of the
Snake river which rushes along its bed
with the speed of a mountain torrent,
surrounded on all sides by cultivated
farms of unrivalled fertility, St. An
thony is the metropolis of this section
of the state and the natural trade center
of a large tract of Uncle Sam's domain,
it has an elevation of 5001) feet above
sea level, lias plenty of pure water and
a mild invigorating climate and is one
of the henltliiest spots on the face of the
It lias a splendid electric light
system, good telephone system with
long distance connections, a $4.5,000
water works system, a $10,000 public
school building, while in the near
future will be built a new court house,
a large flouring mill, a beet sugar fac
tory, creamery, wool si, orage and sale
warehouse and lots have already been
bought for the erection of a $15,000
hotel. The Ross-Hamer block erected
in 1902 at, a cost of $27,000 ranks third
in the state in the way of buildings and
as an office building has no peer in
Idaho. It is located on one ot the prin
cipal corners and would be a credit to
any city many times the size of this.
The people are enterprising, progres
sive and prosperous, her streets are
dotted with cozy cottages and hand
some homes which form the border for
substantial business blocks, giving the
city the general appearance of solidity.
< 'ivic and fraternal societies are well
represented and the many church or
ganizations are in a flourishing con
dition. Her school system is of the best
and tlie people take a pardonable pride
in their temples of wisdom.
Si. Anthony's best days are yet to
come, and the summit of her prosperity
has been far from reached. Naught
but words of confidence and enthusiasm
are heard on every band and here the
eroker and pessimist—if there be any —
find no hearing.
The First National Hank.
No financial institution in this section
of the state can point to a more satisfac
tory record of usefulness, conservative
growth and development than the First
National Bank of Ht. Anthony. Follow
ing fixed financial principles its man
agement has been unexcelled, the policy
being to keep the business of the bank
entirely under its control and its re
sources available at all times. It was
established in August, 1899, as a private
bank and organized as a National bank
in April, 1901. with a paid up capital
stock of $25,000. At t his time, less than
two years later, they have a surplus of
$11,000; cash and due from other banks,
$100,000; loans. $200,000, while their
books show the handsome sum of $275,
000 in deposits. The First National
Bank does a general banking business,
solicits business from other banks, eor
porations, business houses and individ
uals and guarantees complete satisfac
tion. They buy and ell exchange, ac
cept deposits, make loans in accordance
with established usages and have a col
lection department efficiently organized
for the accommodation of the business
public. The bank is located in the
business center and is the liest equipped
and most handsomely furnished bank
ing room in the slate. The tine fire
proof vault incloses a Diebold double
decked, screw door safe with a Y'ale
time lock and affords a complete i>ro
tection against fire or burglary. In ad
dition to this vault there is an upper
vault fitted with a regular vault door
which is used for the safe keeping of the
bank's papers, records and valuable
documents . This bank is a member of
the American Bankers' Association and
as an additional security to their cus
tomers they carry $12,50(5 burglar insur
ance. The officers of this bank are well
known men of affairs of the strictest in
tegrity and of known financial respon
sibility and are as follows: A. K
Steunènberg, president; John C. Rice,
vice-president; G. E. Bowerman. cash
ier, and L. S. Borrows, teller.
M. E. Jamison.
From the farmers point of view the
first in importance among the business
interests of a town is the hardware and
implement house. Here he buys his
shelf and heavy hardware, stoves, ranges
and tinware, us well us t he implements
jused on the farm Chief among the
j dealers in this line in Fremont county
is M . E. Jamison, one of the boat known
businessmen in this section. He has
I '.'een in business here since 1895. and by
I fair and honorable dealing with custom
ers has built up a large and profitable,
trade He carries a large stock of shelf]
and heavy hardware, stoves, ranges
sewing machines, clocks, sporting goods
as well as carpets, draperies, win
dow shades and a full line of plain and
fancy furniture. He is also the agent
for the Milwaukee harvesters and mow
ers. Mr. Jamison is the only funeral
director in this section and dees under
taking iu all its branches, taking com
plete charge from crepe to carriage and
flowers, thereby relieving friends from
all responsibility. Hois especially fitted
for this work, being a graduate from an
embalming school. He is expeditious
and satisfactory in Ins methods and
everything in this department; is per
formed in the most modern, successful
and professional manner
St. Anthony Lumber A drain d
Lumber has its history and like all
histories has its various chapters. It
opens with the primeval forests and the
woodman's ax, and ends in the homes
and haunts of civilized man. It is the
prime factor in the building world and
the industry has afforded an avenue of
trade for a class of men who are typical
hustlers. Prominent among this class
is H. M. Thornton, proprietor of the SU
Anthony Lumber and Grain < bmpany. j
This gentleman has been in the lumber
business for the last year and a half and j
by fair and honorable dealing has built
up a large trade. He carries nil kinds
of lumber and building materials and !
his prices are as low as first-class stock !
can be sold for. Most ot his lumber is j
under shea, bright and drv, readv for I
the carpenters plane, lie also deai.s ex- j
tensively in grain and produce for which I
he pays the highest market price. He -
owns a large warehouse 20x90 feet to i
which he has built an addition 40yf>0 i
feet. Mr. Thornton is one of our lead-j
ingand progressive citizens and owns a j
fine ranch of 480 acres lying three and !
a half miles, northwest of the city, it j
is nicely improved, most all under cul
tivation, has good buildings and for
ricultura and stock raising is one of the
best to be found in Fremont comity. A
visit to his ranch will convince the most
skeptical of the possibilities of this sec
tion of Idaho which is destined to take
a high rank among the producing states.
St. Anthony Banking Company.
The Ht. Anthony Banking company
of this city is an eminently safe, flour
ishing and reliable institution and one
that embarks in no questionable ven
tures. This bank i-< a private institu
tion and was organized lust fall. Mr.
G. ('. Baker is president and cashier and
Mr. W. A. Calderhead assistant cashier.
The paid up capital stock is $15.009 and
the deposits at tills time are over $25,000
and growing, a most creditable show
ing which speaks volumes for the stand
and business ability of the owner
and officers of this bank. They do a
general banking business, make real
estate and commercial loans, discount
commercial papers, accept deposits,
make collections and buy and sell do
mestic and foreign exchange. They
also do an extensive real estate business
in both city and county property and
write insurance in four leading com
panies. The personnel ' of this bank is
of itself a sufficient guarantee of its ab
solute reliability and straight-forward
business methods.
St. Anthony Building and Mfg. Co.
The building trade of Ht Anthony
and vicinity lias a leading and reliable
representative in the above named pro
gressive firm. This firm was incorpor
ated about one y ear ago and excels in
placing the most advanced accommoda
tions at the disposal of their customers.
They are manufacturers and wholesale
and retail dealers in lumber and build
ing materials and receive doors and
windows in carload lots. The stock
embraces all kinds of rough and dressed
lumber, both native and from other
states and is offered at tlie lowest market
prices. Complete bills of lumber from I
architects plans are furnished on short I
notice und estimates are carefully given. |
In addition of taking the entire output ]
of two saw mills, have a planing mill i
equipped with all the latest machinery |
and are prepared to turn out moulding,.....
brackets, frames, trimmed work and fin
ishings of all kinds. They will shortly
install a gasoline engine and add more
machinery. They are in position to
offer inducements and advantages to
buyers that are difficult of duplication
iu this section and are thoroughly alive
to the wants of the trade and always
endeavor to please their customers.
The officers of this company are J. E.
Fogg, president; G. N. Swartz, secre
tary, and E. J. Warner, manager.
Winn Furniture Company.
As an evidence of what thrift, business
enterprise and catering to the tastes
and wants of the people will accom
plish, we have only to point to the
furniture establishment conducted by
Thomas F. Winn. This gentleman
opened his furniture store in this city
last May and carries the most compre
henstve and elegant line of furniture \
and its accessories to be found iu Fre
mont county. He has been before the
local public less than one year, yet
many- homes in this city and surround
ing country have been rendered more
pleasant and comfortable by jmrehasts ;
made from his store. A glance through
his show rooms reveals the fact that the
intending purchaser lias a wide range 1
to select from, including the latest and
most artistic designs, as well as the
cheaper grades of furniture. A full ;
line of carpets, rugs, draperies, oil cloth |
and linoleums is carried as well as com -
forts, quilts, blankets, portierres and
lace curtains; also pianos and organs of
the best makes and a full line of stoves
and ranges. Everything about the store
is up-to-date and emphasizes good will
in business and shows that the proprie
tor has no old rut to get out of but is
j always progressive and alert to the
| wants of the peonl«
