Final action has been taken on the reform school bill and it now awaits the signature of the governor. Senator Heath stood by Representative Moore until the bill was out of danger and we consider him a trump. The opposition to the location of the school in Fremont county brought to bear upon Senator Heath was like throwing water upon a ducks hack and had about the same ef fect. Senator Heath stated in sub stance in his able address for the bill that the editor of the Rexburg .Tournai didn't cut much ice in Fremont county. Some Doings of the Idaho Legislature. Senator Day's local option bill No. 29 has been defeated in the committee of the whole. House bill No. IS by Warner, was passed by a vote of 20 to 1. This hill provides that a stock of goods cannot he transferred in bulk before the vendor issues a statement of the list of credi tors and the amount owing them. It is designed to protect the creditors against dishonest merchants. Bill No. 28 by Senator Brigham, re ducing the tax on dogs in cities and towns to $1, has been passed. House bill No. 20 by C. C. Moore, of Fremont county, creating the Idaho In dustrial School and locating it in Fre mont county, passed the senate Tues day and is now ready for the Governor's signature. A joint memorial was presented by Jenkins, republican leader, asking con gress to enact legislation, control and if necessary suppress combinations and trusts. The memorial was passed at once. Wanted for Desertion, Deputy Sheriff Ricks received a tele gram from Blackfoot to hold Edward Stevens, who for several weeks past has been running a lunch counter in St. Anthony. It is stated that about a year ago he married a young lady in Black foot and shortly afterwards deserted her. About two weeks ago the deserted wife gave birth to a baby and naturally asked for assistance from Stevens for | if herself and child. He refused to help her in any way, so the sheriff will take care of him until the district court con venes. It is further reported that Stevenson has been living here in ad ultry with his aunt. They came here from Dubois. Miller Released, Sheriff Harrop returned from Idaho Falls last Friday bringing with him Harry Miller, who was wanted here for forgery. The preliminary hearing was held before Judge Donaldson in the pro bate court in the afternoon. On account of Miller belonging to a family whose name never before was dragged into court, the prosecuting witnesses re lented and the judge released the young man. Hurry Home Kiefer The Honorable Hurry Home Kiefer, senator from Bingham county, demon strated his friendly feeling towards Fremont county by voting against the bill locating the State Reform School in this county. Fortunately for everyone concerned, Hurry Home "cuts no ice'' either in the state senate or otherwise. Parker Died on the 9th inst, Stephen L. Winegar, aged 72 years, 11 months and 17 days. He has been ailing for several years with asthma, but dropsy was the immediate cause of his demise. Mr. Winegar was the pioneer settler on Egin bench. He was of a kind and aimable disposition and always hospi table to the traveler. He leaves a wife, three sons, two daughters and a host of friends to mourn his departure.

J. Brandon Frank Winkler Carl Ripplinger Irene Fryer Willie Ripplinger „ | obtained such a hold on the body politic that it would be unsafe to amputate it Which Shall D Be? The Tribune desires to apologize to the Idaho legislature for seeming to be overcome with a desire to preach to it. But the members will understand that we are on the the outside and hear a great many things which those who are on the inside may not hear. Without being too specific we would like to say to them that there are influences at work against which they cannot too carefully guard. Governor Morrison in his message made some recommenda tions touching a disposition of the pub lic funds. The idea of recommendation was that the interest on idle public •money should be a benefit of the people instead of the particular officer in whose custody the money may be. It lias be come a notorious fact that treasurers, both state and county, are making more money out of daily balances than out of tlieir salaries. This is particularly true of the state treasurer. The governor recommends that these balances go in to tlie general treasury instead of into the pockets of tlie officers. There is certainly not an honest man in the state who can find the least objection, yet ob jections are being urged and the most subtle means are being employed to pre vent proper legislation on this subject if lias even been hinted, by those who professedly favor proper legislation, that some measure should be enacted looking to the correction of this evil but that it should not go into force for two years after the enactment. In other ords they advocate that the evil has or on of at once. Of course, they do not put it just that way and indeed they do not mean it just that way. What they do mean is that there was an implied understanding with all candidates for treasurer that existing conditions should not he disturbed, and it is alleged that these candidates paid their political ass essments on that understanding. A re publican who advances that kind of an argument places bis party in a very un enviable position. But there are repub licans who will place their party most anywhere in order to promote their own interests or what seems to be their in terests. We suggest to the republican members of the legislature that down in tlie executive office is a man whose whole heart and soul is wrapped up in a desire to promote the public weal. He lias clearly and courageously marked out the path which every member, in his own heart, knows he ought to follow, and every member must realize that if he deviates from that path tin* conse quence must fall upon him and the odium rest upon republicanism. The cry has been for a clean, upright admin istration. All the ante-election criti cisms were hurled against that which was unclean and unjust. The time is now at hand when the republicans must by tlieir acts justify their professions. If they fail, what right have they to appeal again to the people for support V And we wish to say right here that if they do fail it will be because they pre fer failure to success. If they fail it will not be because of blind leadership but because of tlieir own perverseness. The republican members of the legisla ture cannot too highly appreciate that with them rests the hope and the in tegrity of the party. In tlieir hands is either the making or unmaking of ro publicanism in Idaho. Wise and cour A es ageous conduct on their part will start) the party on a career of successful ad ministration which will last for at least a generation. Cowardly and dishonest conduct will bring the party to disgrace and destruction. Which shall it be? Caldwell Tribune. Will Organize K. P. Lodge. Grand Chancellor C. C. Hedum of Salmon City, and Vice Grand Chancellor A. T. Shane, of Idaho Falls, were in the city over Sunday getting things in shape for the organization of a Knights of Pythias lodge.

To Prohibit Polygam}. A joint resolution has been intro duced in the house by Mr. Jenkins of Wisconsin, which is intended io pro hibit i olygamy. The resolution has been reierred to the judiciary committee and is as follows: Joint Resolution proposing au amend ment to the Constitution of the United States prohibiting bigamy and poly gamy. "Resolved by the senate and house of representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two thirds of each house concurring there in), that the following amendment to the Constitution of tha United States be adopted according to law: "Article XVI. No person shall will fully and knowingly contract a second marriage while ihr first marriage, to the knowledge of the offender, is still subsisting and uudissolved. "Any person who shall wilfully and knowingly contract a vond marriage while the first marriage, to the knowl edge of the offender, is still subsisting and undissolved, shall never thereafter hold, occupy, or enjoy any office of hon or or profit under the United States. "'Congress shall make all laws nec essary and proper to carry the foregoing powers into execution." powers A Splendid Investment Many of us do not know that bad roads are responsible for so many of our woes because we have not thought, says Isaac B. Potter. Some of our farmers are patient arid many of them are contented with these roads because they do not know the value of a good one. A good road is a splendid invest ment. There was never a good road made in any civilized country on earth that didn't pay 100 per cent a year on its cost. A good road raises t he value of every acre, invites us to market when price are good and takes us out of the clutch es of the commission pirates who sell our goods behind our hacks at then own figures, keep their own accounts and pay us a pittance for our toil and trouble. A good road shortens distance, saves time, wagons, horseflesh, harness, increases the load and lessens the bur den and makes it possible to haul two tons to market with the same power that now leaves one ton stuck in the mire. A good road brings ns closer together, drives ont gloom, makes neighbors of hermits, discounts every farm mort gage and brings joy to every community. Egin. On Thursday, Jan. 29th, the sports of this place formed into two parties for « general rabbit hunt. The one party was led by Miles Weaver, the other by Reuben Moon, and "just as the sun went down" the slaughtered bunnies were brought in by sled loads and counted. There were 500 killed by both parties, as near as the writer could learn.- A grand free ball was given on Friday night following, where every body and their friends enjoyed music and dancing of the first order. Songs and step-dances by Mr. Palmer were in artistic style and served as a desert to the free dance treat. A telephone line will connect the en terprising farmers of Egin bench, m the near future, with the main line and the county seat.

Dr. Rich of Rexburg, attended the case. Mr. White walks with his head high up in the air to think that he is such a pop ular man to own the great l'lauo store, and to be the father of such a fine big daughter. On February 11th tnere will be a great contest in hunting rabbits between the Plano and Egin men. Doctor Rich was called to visit the child of William Lucas, which he re ports has tonsilitis, but he thinks it will get along all right if properly- nursed.

Judge Alfred Budge confirmed the sale of the entire Idaho Canal com pany's property to the Idaho Canal and Improvement company of which Mr. J. H. Brady of this city is the president and a deed from Receiver Rich was made to Mr. Brady's company for the property and the purchase price, $100. 000 in cash, was paid over. The Idaho Canal company's property comprises three systems of canals and a ■ontraot with the government to furnish water for the Indians of the Fort Hall >s ervation. There are over 550 miles of mais and laterals and last season some 500 farmers were supplied with water from the system. This number will be increased to (too or over next season. Last year crops were worth more than $500,000 that were raised from lands under this system of canals. When put in proper shape the system can easily water at least three times as much land as it did last season. Mr. Brady lias planned to spend at least $20,000 in improving the property this spring. The property has been in litigation for five years past and the settlement of the lands under its canals has been much retarded through such litigation. This sale however, cleans up absolutely all suits against the property and gives perfect title to the new company. Poca tiHo Tribune. tiHo Tribune. Warrant Call.
