State Game Warden loins, who has been through the Island Park and Henry's Lake country on a trip of in vestigation, returned last Monday well pleased over the conditions. "The game law is being observed," says the warden, ''and nearly every person I met has taken out his fishing and hunt ing license." In answer to the question Mr. Iorns stated that R. A. Osborn has the finest fish hatchery in the state, and that he saw more fish there than he could pos sibly imagine, and would not have be lieved it had anyone attempted to have told him such a ''fish story." He paid his deputy, W. W. Green, a very high compliment, stating that he was doing his duty and lending every possible assistance to the preserving of the fish and game The daintiest and prettiest patterns in summer dress goods are here for your inspection.

A Heavy Immigration to the West Is Expected This Year and Idaho Gets Her Share. ; I / / / / / / / > / / , ' > Congressman Burton L French of Idaho, who has been spending some time in Washington, Chicago and the east, will return to his state shortly after the first of the month. A new member of the house attracts little at tention and ear, seldom accomplish much for his constituency, but Mr. French's position is unique in one respect and the fact is going to give him prominence which will add to his opportunities to make his services of vaine to Idaho and maybe to tho west He is the youngest member of congress, being barely 28 years of age. Now that in itself is something to boast of, but add to it the fact that he graduated from tho University of Idaho in 1901; was a fellow in the University of Chi cago in 1901 and 02; became an attorney ind practiced law before the United States supreme court, and was twice elected a member of the state legisla ture, and it will be seen that the "boy" congressman, as he will undoubtedly be called, has had valuable training for his present duties. MADE DIGNIFIED CAMPAIGN. Mr. French made a dignified cam paign last fall for the office and accepted his triumphant election with unassumed modesty. Many will recall the appear ance he made at the ratification meeting held in the opera house in Boise imme diately after the result of the contest was announced. In his eloquent and fervid address there was no evidence of assumed superiority or repellant egotism. He was grateful for his election and earnest in his desire to serve his state. Little has been heard of him since, but he has spent the time in preparing for the time congress will convene, which will probably be in October or November. LOYALTY OF IDAHOANS. One of the most favorable signs of the times for Idaho is the loyalty of her citizens. Never a one comes east but tells the same glowing story of pros perity, present and prospective. Tho truth lias not attracted wide-spread attention as yet, but is gaining ground, anil everyone familiar with the situa tion is confident that the thousands of emigrants who wore promised to follow tho Thunder Mountain excitement of a year ago must soon head west towards the rich agricultural lands awaiting reclamation in the Gem State. Con gressman French maintains this view. To the Tribune's Washington corres pondent ho said: HEAVY IMMIGRATION EXPECTED. "The northwest is more talked of than any other section of the country at the present time, nnd Idaho comes in for her full share. Emigration is tend ing that way rapidly, and our mountain state is on the verge of greater develop ment than it has ever known before. "I have plaeed myself in close touch with tho movement of our government towards reclaiming the arid lands and am confident that it will he carried on with all possible rapidity. As much land is now being irrigated in Idaho, nearly 000,000 acres will doubtless be reclaimed in the near future, at which time the movement will have but barely begun."—Salt Lake Tribune.

Blackfoot, June 8.—Con tests have been filed in the local land office against the desert entries of Patrick Nellie, John R. and William J. Mullins, and Ed ward H. Sherman of Butte. Mullins is mayor of Butte and Sherman is a prom inent music dealer of that city. The lands involved are located in the vicin ity of Henry's Lake, Fremont county, and are said to be very valuable. The lands are out of the jurisdiction of tin land office here and the contest affida vits have been submitted to the general land office at Washington. The con tests are based upon non-residence in Idaho and non-compliance with law. The eases will be strenuously prosecut ed and defended. Fourth of luly.

Oregon Short Line Takes Aetivi Steps to Protect Its Interests Around Salmon Citv The announcement that surveyors are at work in northern Idaho, presumably in tho interest of the Burlington sys tem in its efforts to reach the Pacific coast, was read with deep interest in i lias oral railroad circles yesterday, espe •ially by those who see in such pro jects the further upbuilding of the west While it cannot tie authovitively said that the Burlington is behind this latest survey, yet it has always been freely admitted that it wished to get to the coast. If it is the Burlington, then the Northwestern will at once enter the same field, and while the two are at work selecting their preliminary routes, tlie Oregon Short Line will, no doubt, jump into the field, and in protection of its interests may extend its Mackny branch through to Salmon City, for which purveys have been made and full tonnage returns carefully computed. Nowadays the first work accomplished by a great system after it lias complet ed its main lines is to have surveys and all statistics at hand bearing upon possible extensions, brunches and spurs. In securing this data a vkst amount of money is annually extended and the Short Line hns fairly covered the state of Idaho with preliminary lines, und its management has in hand data covering the traffic, industrial and topographical features of the whole state. The mere fact of an announcement of the party being in the field will there fore hare its local effect, and the pub lic would not be surprised at any time to hear of stirring action on the part of the Short Line. In tho meantime, the work of the surveyors in question, the possible counter-action by tho North western, and, in fact, any news bearing on the subject, will be followed with in terest by the public- Salt Lake Tribune.

Burl and Sole 1 listrihutor. irr iTunnel Site Selected the Main Range. i Agency creek. They are setting Railroad Surveyors Are Setti Grade Stakes Along Agency Greek, l.emlii County. The gang of mysterious surveyors, operating near the continental divide, lias moved into Idaho, and the camp is now near Cold Springs stage station, on 'rade stakes and doing a complete job prepar atory for the graders to begin. There are fifteen men in the party. Ex-Sen. Geo. L. Shonp and M. M. McPherson arrived in Salmon, Thurs day, after having attended the Roose velt reception in Boise. While on this trip, they had an opportunity to inquire into the movements of this corps of engineers, and seem to bo deeply im pressed with the sincerity of the under taking. It is reported, ns these gentlemen learned, that the result of the surveying of tho Junction and Midway passes in the Main divide shows that, the latter can be crossed 500 feet lower than the former, and that a tunnel .1 mile long above Midway will cut the mountain, but that the tunnel between Junction and Horse Prairie would necessarily be more than a mile in length. The surveyors have cross-sectioned the lower Mhesser ranch to tho foot of the big hill-above Midway, and are all ready to begin grading. This cross sectioning covers a stretch of live miles. The tunnel, whicn bas both its termi nals marked, will start near the last cabins on tho stage road, on the Montana side, just at the foot of the hill, and terminate on the Idaho side in a bunch of dead timber on the old snow-road on Agency creek. H looks as if the com pany intended to commence work on the tunnel right away, maybe to com plete it, or maybe to do sufficient work to bold it until the track is brought up. HAS »OUGHT A TOWNSITE. Some outfit lias bought a bunch of ranches at the mouth of Horse Prairie, comprising sufficient land to plat into a large townsite. This is presumably doue bv the concern which backs the surveyors, and the general btl'ef out side is that the whole operation is in the interest of the Chicago, Burlington & ijuiney railway, which is working its way to the north Pacific coast, Its terminus is now at Billings, Montana, lint il has a long lease of the track of the Northern Pacific, and can run its trains to Butte. By leasing the track of tho Montana Southern, running from Whitehall to Twin Bridges it will be on the Jefferson river, only 28 mites from Dillon and about 111!) miles from Salmon city. This distance can he covered by irons within one year, and there is little doubt of its being done, providing the Burlington desires to go to t.lie coast. Lemhi Herald. Driven to Desperation.
