The Teton Peak
Official. Raff* of R a am ont County WOOD D. PARKER. Publisher THDRSDAY, MAY 21, 1903. Entered nt the Postoffice at St. An thony, for transmission through the mails, as second-class matter. SUBSCRIPTION One Year Six Months Three Months : Advertising Hales on RATES ' $2 OO : 1 OO SB application. J. A. Noggee, of Soldier, organize a stock company for the purpose of puttin'? in a 70 barrel flouring mill at this point. Mr. Nogyle is tile owner of a 65 barrel mill at Soldier, and is a thorough mill man in every re spect and is well qualified to build up and conduct a success ful business at this point if the people of St. Anthony and the surrounding country desire to take advantage of this oppor tunity. Mr. Noggle informed a Peak representative yesterday that the prospects for organiz ing the company and raising the necessary means looked very favorable to him. This is one of the many opportunities tliu? lias come to St. Anthony in the last three years and if the busi ness men and farmers of this section ever expect to obtain a flour mill, they must necessarily lend some assistance and co operation. We need not expect that anyone will thrust an enter prise of this kind upon us, neither will outside capital be invested here in spite of hold-up prices on mill sites and rights of way for canals, etc., as past experience proves. If a flouring mill is a good thing for this place, then our citizens should encourage its location here by seeing that a fair opportunity in in seeing tnai a iair opportunity in the way of a desirable location . ? and rights of way for canals, at reasonable prices, is tendered the parties who are willing to invest their capital for the good and upbuilding of the commu nity, and, furthermore we should show our faith in our own'town to the extent of taking as many shares of the capital stock as each for himself feels able to take. If this is a good place for a flouring mill, we must still bear in mind that natural ad vantages alone do not make a prosperous, flourishing commu nity, but the natural advantages must be complemented by the united efforts of an energetic people, working in harmony for the good of the whole community. We have been taught by precept and by experience that "the Gods help those who help them selves,''and if St. Anthony ever expects to bask in the sunshine of the Divine smile, now is the time for a united effort to help ourselves. If you "can not help this very laudable enterprise, for heaven's sake and for the sake of the community in which you live and the people off whom you make your living, don't run the price of your lots up to $1,0()0 per front foot (if you happen to be one of those who were lucky enough to drift inhere when lots could be bought for about one dollar each,) and then hang around like a Chinese boxer with a knife up your sleeve for the "foreign devils." Let us get together, by all means, and not - only make 't possible, but invit ingly pleasant for this nroDosed 7 F . , tins proposed enterprise, and the Peak will ---------— 4.U-4 guarantee that within a year from now we will all be willing to pat ourselves on the back and quietly and modestly admit that "we did it." Governor Morrison has named James Russel Harrison for lumber inspector of district No. 2, which includes Coeur D'Alene lake and all streams tributary thereto or flowing into tributary streams. Mr. Harri son is a resident of Kootenai county. Wool, sales in Idaho have in Weiser the past two weeks, and there has been a great hus tling among them to see who could get the largest portion of the clip. Joe Streng, represent ing Eisemann Bros, of Boston, appears to have been the most successful. He secured 1,250, 000 pounds for his firm. The ruling price was 13 cents, al though some sales are reported to have been made at 14 cents. The wool clip of Washington county, it is estimated, will make nearly 3,000,000 pounds. Sales so far will make nearly 2,000,000 pounds. It seems to be quite fashion able these days for governors who are attorneys to follow the pursuits of their profession. Gov. Chamberlain of Oregon and other western governors are us ing this method of making a little money on the side. Gov. Morrison of Idaho, has recently formed a partnership with Jos. T. Pense foi' the purpose of practicing law in Boise. With the influence of his official posi tion in his favor, His Excellency should have considerable influ ence with His Honor, the judge, and the very presence of -'Dread Majesty" would no doubt have a hypnotic influence on the aver age juror. However, it is well enough for governors to keep in touch with some method of mak ing a living as a private citizen, for they are invariably sent back to private life at the expiration of their term of office, the good that they have done being straightway forgotten and their sins becoming a part of the his tory of their state. Why don't Mr. Carnagie build a home for ex-governors and quit "foolin" away his money on libraries?
