Who says Ben K. Rich
misses a county convention?
Secretary of State Will II. Gibson,
came over from Boise Saturday on
business and pleasure combined.
Mr! Gibson is also looking after
his political interests this fall. Mr.
Gibson has made a very capable and
efficient secretary of state, and will
in all probability receive the en

The old courthouse (? ) is being
renovated and repainted inside.
This is a very good thing from a
sanitary point, but it looks like a
shame and disgrace for a wealthy
county like Fremont to lie patching
up and overhauling their old
"shacks." books like we might
be expected to put tip with them
for another ten rears.
The sheepmen of this section are
elated over the early spring, and,
although the weather has not been
very warm, there has been no cold
rain and snow to interfere with the
flocks on the range. The clip this
year will be very large, and those
who lost large bands of sheep last
year from "big bead," will have
a chance to even up this spring.
Many large flock masters have re
ported to us that the lambing season
with them is practically over, and
their loss has not been worthy of
mention. One gentleman informed
us that out of one band he had
2,000 la mbs without
single one.

Idaho stock men will be greatly

Line having restored the privilege,
the othei interested roads are almost
sure to follow. I he cutting off of !
the return passes was due to a
claim made by some of the railroad j
people that attendants who had no
intention of returning sometimes
secured the^ fiasses and sold them to
scalpers. I he stock men feel that
they have been subjected to a great
injustice, and their business to a
considerable loss. Considering the
long haul which they have to
overcome, Idaho live stock men

Of Interest to Idahoans
From our Washington Correspondent
Idaho has reason to be satisfied
with the work of her new senator
and congressman this term. The
legislation of importance to Idaho
which they have been successful in
securing this session compares very
favorably indeed with the results
obtained by other western members.
Senator Heyburn has been an
active force in the Senate since tak
ing his seat, and contrary to pre
cedent has been able to secure re
cognition on many occasions. He
has improved his opportunities and
has created a good impression on
the leaders of his party. His deep
legal knowledge, his wide and
varied reading, ami his broad and
intelligent conception of the needs
not only of the people of his own
state, but of the whole country,'fit
him to fill his present high position
with grace and distinction,. He
enjoys the fullest confidence of the
President, who has been pleased to
give evidence of his regard on
numerous occasions.
During the past session Senator
Heyburn introduced and secured
the passage in the Senate of the
following important bills: Enlarg
Boise barracks and expendn
$30(1,000 thereon ; establishing a fish
hatchery and station in Idaho, $25,
000: for the survey of the Coeur
d'Alene Indian reservation $25,
000 : for investigating Kootenai rivet
in northern Idaho, $10,000: for
survey to determine the feasibility
of opening Salmon river to naviga
tion, $25,000; granting certain pro
perty to the town of Coeur d'Alene
for park and cemetery, twenty acres
for each ; limiting tight of selec
tion of lands in lieu of surrendered
grant lands, omitting Idaho lands;
i amending section 232(1 R. S. relat
ing to mining claims, providing
that suits brought in support of an
adverse claim filed in any U. S.
land office against any application
for patent for a mining claim shall
be deemed actions at law, to be tried
as other actions at law in the
courts having jurisdiction of the
subject matter. He also introduced
\ the following bills which are pend
| ing in committee; for the relief of
: the Nez Perce tribe of Indians,
| directing the payment of $17,500
due them under treaty of June 11,
1855, and June 9, 1803 ; directing
stay of proceedings now pending
j upon any application to enter or
patent even numbered sections of
' the public lands in lieu of odd
■ numbered sections surrendered by
; any vii'road company, within the
limits of anv forest
reserve : to
, deposit models of naval vessels in
j state capitols and cities; for the
annexation of Santa Domingo,
Congressman French lias been
j one of the busiest members of the
House and, notwithstanding the
; early pronouncement of Speaker
| Cannon that new appropriation bills
; would get it in the neck this session,
very ably championed and was
successful in securing the passage
of the following bills: Appropriat
ing $25,000 for the survey of Coeur
j d'Alene reservation: bill creating
permanent cavalry post at Boise,
with expenditures oi $306,000 for
the!new buildings 'and improvements, i
: He also secured the passage of bills
! donating twenty acres each for park
and cemetery purposes to the citv ;
of Coeur d'Alene; validating oaths
! taken in making land proofs out-j
! side the districts in which the land i
j is located,
Perhaps the most successful piece
| of work performed by Mr. French
( this session was the pa-sage of the
Ft. Hall bill, which met with such
vigorous opposition at tile start,
! and which seemed fated to go down
to defeat several times on account
of errors made by the Department
in drawing it up. This bill really
passed the House several times. 1
j Congressman French appeared be-1
: fore the committees on Public Land
land Irrigation several times and
i was in no small measure responsible
1 for the defeat of the vigorous effort
made to repeal the various land
I laws. In operation he secured the
I passage of {»elision bills to the
I following citizens of Idaho : Levi
1 Roberts, $30; Jonathan Hites $24 ;
Charles Reed, $30; Henrv C. Riggs,
: $lf, ; George Sullivan, $24 ; Mary
Gilroy. $12, and numerous others.
The Idaho delegation has been
very earnest in presenting the
claims of the state to the Secretary
of the Interior, and the result has
been the setting aside of $2,600,000
of the Reclamation fund for the
early construction of the Minidoka
irrigation project on Snake river,
which will reclaim 120,000 acres of
land and will result in the material
development of this section of the
