The com j dal interests of Idaho have for main' years past dominai Pv the business interests of Salt :ke City and Ogden, to cur great s alvantage, and the rt stmeiit of the tariffs by :. Short Line railroad was evi e mh made to correct to some xteiu the wrong which has been miosed upon us. We think these - are not all that we are entitl ' ut the concessions made are p in the right direction, and : as made are equitable and and al 1 ! as I , cad -1 ( ire- I °f evi- ! the time is ripe for the | V le of Idaho to stand for their j lits ind to demand equal md xjet justice from the railroads and ; i nilicting business interests, I b igardless of the selfish howl made j . Salt Lake and Ogden jobbers. | southern Idaho is a territory be- : urging exclusively to the Oregon, s ;or; Line Railroad company, and j will undoubtedly remain so for j my years to come. Every dollar j material wealth added to this [ territory, thereby developing its j «.trees and varied interests, adds j wilue to Oregon Short Line railroad it,tercets and increases the demands m»m its hauling capacity. Upon , vary, any policy which dis rimicates against Idaho, or lends r-.tard its development, uecessa ily operates indirectly against the railroad interests. The equitable adjustments of the tariffs is not a matter affecting job ' , x ; bers only, but in our judgment is matter affecting the whole people of southern Idaho. The consumers within this territory, for many years past, have paid tribute to Salt Lake City and Ogden as distribue points for Idaho, whereas just-, ice and fair (treatment demand that all merchandise for this territory sliould be shipped to some suitable! points within the state for clistri- ! Li tion, upon as fair terms as those dapped to Salt Lake, Ogden, or! any other place of no greater dis tance, or involving no heavier op- ' crating expense. The people of j Idaho expect to make a fight toj maintain their rights in this matter ! if it becomes necessary, and the en tire business interests of southern Idaho will unite in this fight, not against the railroad company, but agianst .Salt Lake City and Ogden, and if necessary will divert the en tire shipping interests of this sec tion to points further east, or to the ioast.

The Coni tnissioner of the General Land office j ha* informed Senator Heyburt: '.hat ! C(in, c a: settlers on the unsurveytd Linds situate within the late Coeur d' •'dene Indian reservation must make format application to the United States Surveyor General for Idaho at Hois' if a urv< - is desired. Ac application or Ration the settlers, as far as prae- j ticable, should also submit their affidavits setting forth length of residence, and nature, extent, and approximate value of improvements on their respective claims. Special a « e,,ts vviU e: " lmine the bona fides of the settlers an <l applicants, and the survey;; will be authorized or denied on their reports, blank forms of settlers' applications may ' lie obtained upon application to the Surveyor General. Senator I ley burn and Congress nan French are receiving telegrams of congratulation from all over Ida ho on the successful outcome of their fight for the appointment of II. Smith Wooley at Boise. Re publican members of both houses are speaking in words of praise on the same subject. Senator Hey burn said: "My attitude on the Wooley ease lias been to give Mr. Wooley the fullest epp a unity to meet all charges aad when in my mind he had disproved every charge brought against him, 1 personally entered the contest and to the best of my ability urged his appointment. The President gave the evidence careful consideration and so did Secretary Shaw, and both concltul j ed that the citarges were not sus tained. The appoi invent followed ! as a matter of con Congress man French said : "1 went over the charges against Mr. Wooley and his replies thereto, and decided he was unjustly accus ed. rav personal efforts were then exerted in Ins behalf. When it is remembered that a Roosevelt and a Shaw wiped out these charges and agreed on the appointment, i feel that there is but little more to be said on the subject. Mr. Wooley will make a capable and efficient officer 1 am confident." The Wooley case was finally j settled by the President Monday morning when in the presence of Secretary Shaw and Senator Hev burn he ordered the papers made out for his signature, and immedi ate lv -eut Mr. Wooley's name to the Senate for confirmation. The end of the case was somewhat c i raniat i c< as all along the enemies c) f \\ T 0 ole\ seemed to be getting the best of the fight. When Wooley's final answer was presented and considered at the White House, t i ie evidence in rebuttal was so con elusive that the President decided to terminate the matter forthwith, and acted with characteristic promptness and firmness. The case is now a closed incident in Washington. Congressman French has secured i pension of IS per month for Mr. Robert Kitchen of Boise. The -,nm of pension carries with it the $900 back pay. Senator Heyburn has introduced a bill appropriating $10,000 to be expended through the Director of the Geological Survey for survey, reconnaissance, and engineering investigations to determine upon a I plan of reclamation for agricultural purposes, of the overflowed lands j in the valley of the Kootenai River j in northern Idaho and Montana. I The land grant railroads are preparing to wage a bitter fight against the Heyburn Bill which provides for a stay of all proceed ings now pending upon any appli cation to enter or patent even num bered sections in lieu of odd num bered sections surrendered by rail road companies or their ass-1 g within the limits of any fr.rcst reserve. Senator Hevburn gave the Senate a very illuminating talk on die injustice of the present system granting lieu scrip and perniit ting railroad companic der grant land; of little in one state and then sc valuable titulier lauds to surren or no value dp the most n another. The inipor Idaho will when it is Nc rthern Pacific Company nee of this bill to be better understood remembered that the holds scrip for more than 2,000,00(1 acres which it only waits the completion of surveys to put on the best pine lands in Idaho.
