VOL. VI rrnusHEn is the garden spot of southeastern in a ho. ST. a population oi less ■lot I" ; th the Legislature , 0)5C Ida., Feb. 12.—Tomorrow !j ns the seventh week of the leg t ivo session. It lias been decid idlovv the introduction of s until Wednesday. During lu . s t three days there are a iber of very important measures introduced. Work on some ,| ieSC measures is hardly cotu Ferhaps the chief of these In- general appropriation bill, Inch the house committee ppropriations has been working dilv during the past ten days, is stated that the committee has ttv fully determined upon the v amounts to be allowed and lous executive and court oflic In most cases it has been IU 1 necessary to increase the [mint over two years ago. This csity for increase has been cre 1 by the rapid growth of the jncss of the state. The appro jation committee, however, has ml its greatest difficulty in de ing on the amounts needed for maintenance and improvement [public institutions and the state's rational institutions. W i t h departments of the state, institutions have all grown that it is claimed that the pres plants are inadequate to do the rk required. The state pen i ten - iry is fearfully crowded to such degree in fact that it is with the latest difficulty that the health Y the inmates is preserved. It is rted of the asylum at Blackfoot t this institution is in déplora ■condition, entirely on account inadequate facilities for caring ■the unfortunate. This will pro Iblv he corrected by the establish ing of a branch asylum in one of ; northern counties of the state, lie Soldiers' Home in Boise also sis increasing in size, and an lort lias been made by members the legislature to have the Home Irned over to the general govern lent. It is generally doubted pether this could be done. With : educational institutions of the |ati, the same conditions of ill [eparations is evident, according the committees that have in lected these institutions. With .this ( to ^do, the Jappropriation Iramittee is confronted with the loblem of how to make ends meet. It- opinion of the attorney gener that all bonds issued against the endowments for educational Istitutions are properly debts of state and run against the con |itntional limitation, and must he let by direct taxation, lias reduced leeway of debt possibilities, so close figuring is necessary. the measures that may he lusidered t as party pledges, [and Ihieli are now iu the way of enact lent, are the establishment of an Jtermomitain wagon road commis the establishment of an tsane asylum in the north, the organization of the state land ppattnient, the establishment of a late banking law, and the creation the office of state bank examiner of traveling auditor, the estab Jshment of juvenile courts to lian nil cases where the offenders under sixteen years of age. Perhaps in no other way have the "aims of the Dubois wing of the jemocratic party been so thorough answered as in the fact that Iroughout the session there has per been any word of the Nrability of the repeal of the two limit law, nor have any of the pnoeratic members offered a bill an V way changing that law. A bill will probably be intro ce< l in the house within the next days reapportioning the state gislatively. The bill is new in preparation. Inder the proposed law the senate |°uUl by i e f[ W [(j twenty-one nieni at present. The house ®niliership, however, would pro Pbly he given a membership of 58, being within two members of «institutional limit. It is felt tlie increased population of of the counties, evidenced a largely increased vote virtual Fcompels the increase of legisla representation. Tin- greatest increase in this way the counties of Nez Peace and cjciiai. In the former county increase during the two years is T,500 to 7,300, and in the her from 3,000 to 6,000. Ada lutity shows an increase of 1,100, Fmont of 800, Idaho, Latah and gham the same. Several of the Antics show slight decreases in vote.

An appeal is being made to the Modern Woodmen for help for Neighbor Charles M. Shissler a member of Camp No. Ill Moines, Iowa, a traveling who, on January Kith, was in Los Angeles, Cahformu, a complete qua finances orbiei'Y' Witl,0Ut ac * L 11 s ' accident is \ , the Los Angeles Examiner, as follows: takinü Æ',, 1(Hh ; • S ! U f er was! taking a bath in Ins lodgings on > out l I low ei street, when the in stai taneous water heater exploded. Either he was struck by flying material or rendered unconscious iy the gas; he fell senseless over tin- side of the tub with his right arm and side immersed in the .scalding water. As Ins side cooked in the hot water he groaned so loudly that °t in persons in the house were the time of the accident. He had sold out his book and stationery store in Des Moines, and had come to Los Angeles to locate perma nently, his wife intending to follow him. She was at once notified by telegraph of the accident and start ed for Los Angeles at once. Shissler was identified bv a but ton on his coat and was at once taken in charge by members of the fraternity. To make a long story short, Mr. Shissler has had 5,1)00 attracted to the room. Finally they broke open the dooi and drag ged him forth. It was thought he I was fatally scalded, and was at once taken to the Emergency and General Hospital. Shissler was alone in the city at IT ■ The above is apicturc of the M. E Church, erected in St. Antfao , , w , 0 , , , • . ny ,i, 1898. and which will be . dedicated on Sunday next. For several years a few members strug gled along working against circum stances with limited support in an endeavor to get the building finish ed and in a servicable condition to I the community. The membership being small the effort of keeping the church in a prospeiing condi tion was not flattering by any means. Rev. H. J. Adams, formerly grafts of skin all taken from his Brother Woodmen's arms. It is quite probable that he will have to have from 300 to 500 grafts more. He has been given the very best medical attention, and the best sur geons have had charge of his case. He is almost a well mail todav, and the Woodmen are responsible for his recovery. Married.

Mr. and Mrs. Denton left on the morning train for Soda Springs where Rev. Denton has charge of the Fresbtyerian church.

The Des Moines (Iowa) Register Leader says: Two unknown high waymen made a desperate attempt at noon yesterday when the streets were filled with shoppers, to hold up the C. Amend meat market, 8111 West Walnut street. A gnu flash ed in the face of Milo McOuiston, meat cutter, by the taller of the two men who entered the shop, with a rush was followed bv a de mand to turn over all of the money in the cash register. W itli a daring move toward the money drawer accompanied by a threat to discharge the gun, the tall stranger walked behind the backed McOuiston counter and into a corner. 1 " Where is the >*>58?" demanded highwayman as he forced him self behind the counter. His part lier was standing guard bv the door. "Gone to dinner," the startled butcher said. "Then give me that money and I give it to me in a liurrv. ' ' ' McQuiston then grabbed a meat j ax to defend his employer's prop erty. With a rush lie took the bold highwayman off his feet and pushed him down the room, jump : ing sideways to keep out of range of the murderous looking revolver, Things were about to come to a climax when the door opened and a woman customer stepped in. The iel low at the door gave a cry of warning, and with a curse the big fellow turned and ran out the door and down the street. McQuiston gave the alarm at once, and an attempt was made to find the men. No one was arrested who could be identified by the meat cutter. The two men were describ ed as heilig both well-built, middle aged fellows. The taller wore an overcoat, while the shorter wore a sweater and coat. They looked like tramps, and are believed to be transient characters. The police were furnished with no clue. Milo McQuiston is a Fremont county hoy, his father still living at Squirrel. from Sabetha, Kan., and a student fro,n Philamoth, Oregon was giv en this charge by the Idaho Annual P(infpr „ npfl F Spntpmhpr . ian3 and Conference in September, 1903. and since coming among the ptople of this city has done excellent work for the upbuilding of the Methodist church, having added many new members since his coming here, Over $500 has been expended iu the last year in equipping, painting and making the church comfortable. About $250 of the debt remains yet unpaid, but will he liquidated be fore the dedicatory services next Sunday. Government to Experiment Raising Coach Horses. To help supply the demand for prime coach horses, Assistant Sec retary of Agriculture Hays recently purchased in Chicago for the horse breeding experiment station at Greeley. Colo., the famous stallion Thunder Cloud, eleven mares and a number of fine range horses. The Greeley institution is under the direction of the Argicultural department at Washington and the Government recently appropriated $50.000 for the purpose of experi menting in breeding an ideal type of coach horses. This new move on the part of the Government is said to be likely to lead to requests from other live-stock interests to branch out further and establish farms for breeding other types of horses as well as for breeding different types of cattle, bogs and sheep. Robt. A. Tempest of the Burg, favored the county seat with a call Tuesday. »Ur Rev. Dr. Van Duscn.

Brown, of Logan, Utah, traveling salesman for the Cache Valley Condensed Milk and Cream ery Co., was iu the city this week. Mr. Brown is making a specialty, with great success, of "Honeysuc kle Brand Cream." This cream, according to the judgment of all who have tried it, excels any con densed cream on the market. It is put up in one pound cans especially lor camping use and for sheep and cattle camps. Every merchant who tries an order doubles it the next time. The Cache Valley Condens ed Milk Co., is prepared to fill orders for condensed milk from dealers located in any of the neigh boring states. The prices made defy competition on the part of condensed milk imported from the east, and the quality is guaranteed to be equal to the best. The company is capitalized at $50,000, and ov. ns four creameries, situated respectively in Logan, Millville, Wellsville and Hyde Park, Utah. The factory is located at Logan and has been in operation about one year, and is a pronounc ed success. It has a capacity of 45,000 pounds of milk per day, which means about a carload of condensed milk. The quality of the product manufactured is said to be of the highest, by all who have tried it, and the demand for this needful article of food, throughout the territory tributary to Utah, is being supplied by this home indus try. An old timer of Shotgun Val ley advances the theory, and it seems very reasonable, that a heavy snow fall on the flat, low lands is of no special benefit for irrigation as it goes off two or three months before the crofîs are ready tor water. It is the snow fall high up in the mountain ranges, in big timber and deep ravines that acts as a storage veservoir for the source of irriga tion. This snow does not begin melting until very late in the spring and is not gone from view until late in July and August, then there is still plenty in deep ravines that is not visible to eye from the low lands. Messrs. C. J. Trude. Ernest Uden and others are in town from Rea bearing the interesting testi mony in the big water case. To Remedy Abuses of Land Laws. Important recommendation de signed to remedy the abuse of the land laws have been reported by the Committee on Public Lands", which has been considering or sweeping modification lias urged repeatedly in Govern,,lent • , ,, : . and the commutation re port: clause of the homestead discussed, and it is believed that ,, , , ,, .- , , ic repeal of the tonner, and the modification of the latter so as to require a prolonged and substantial residence on the homestead acquired instead of the present short period, j dians, will do a large the opera house on are recommended. The question of control of the grazing lands of the Government is considered at length. It is estimated that there are 300, 000,000 acres of laud in this coun try apparently fit only for grazing purposes, and the commission has made recommendations designed to prevent the constant destructive work perpetrated on these lands by trespassers and to prevent the fre quent conflicts over public grazing lands among different classes of stockmen. One of the recommendations con sidered by the commission, and which, it is said, the commission has approved in substance, is that the land laws and their administra tion be left in the hands of the Interior department. Another pro vides for Congressional legislation turning over the grazing privileges on the public domain to the Depart ment of Agriculture with ample safeguards and protection to the actual settler. The report goes into a number of other matters with a view to protecting the immense public area of the country. The commission consists of Commissioner Richards of the General Land office. Gifford Pinchot, chief of the forestry bureau of the Department of Agriculture, and F. H. Newell, in charge of the irrigation work of the Department of the Interior. Chas. H. Heritage, the genial proprietor of the Riverside, came up from Salt Lake citv Monday, to remain, having closed out his bus iness in the city. Mr. Heritage has the bar fixtures in place for the Buffett in the hotel, and will have things in running order in a few days. The glassware and hack bar are unique and the place looks very inviting to one who desires to "have a quiet chat with a friend." and doesn't care to have some one "buttin' in." George and Chris Harrigfeld, Wm. Lalk and Carl Lenz, were down from Squirrel the first of the week, attending the water case. They returned home yesterday. These gentlemen were representing the interests of the Harrigfeld canal company, a new ditch taken out of Fall river about two years ago, and which covers 15,000 acres of the choicest farm lands in the Upper Snake river county. Well, the old favorites vvill soon be with us again, and mav they prove as successful as they did in former seasons. Merit always wins therefore G.

Vanderveer, Mr. A. Stone, Mesdames Ida Wylie and Lulu Lewis. Mr. Stone won the first prize and Coi. Hamer the con solation. Fred. W. Rising returned from Butte Monday, where he has been for medical treatment. He returns much encouraged over the opinion the doctors gave him of his condi tion, who deemed it unnecessary for him to undergo another operation. About a year ago, Mr. Rising un derwent an operation for gall stones, and his health has since been very delicate. Guard Lowe, of the penitentiary at Boise, was in the city Sunday having come for R. D. R. Adams, who was sent to the penitentiary for bounty frauds. Mr. Lowe left with his prisoner Monday morning. | Investigation May Be Prolonged. A Washington correspondent to the Salt Lake Tribune is responsi ble tor the following information : Washington, Feb. 10. The de " U ? ds that the ii ! 1 "' ,°" S ' lsu J qmr ^ alou * lines recently developed and it is , highly probable that a sub-con,mit ,i.. , , .

Only a few men know the exact situation and the evidence the committee has will be carefully guarded. This means there will he no disposition of the case by this Congress. Senator Burrows, chairman of the Committee on Privileges and Elections, declined to discuss the situation with the correspondent of The Tribune this morning. "Just wait a while, all will yield well," he said with a significant twinkle, and this taken in conjunction with his remarks upon the statehood bill and his veiled reference to im portant information, suggests that he has confidence in the reports. While it is generally admitted now that there vvill be no action upon the case atjthis session it is certain that several important speeches vvill he made upon the case before the session is closed. Certain Senators have given notice of their intention to speak upon the subject. One of these Senators who will address the Senate is a man who was near the scene of the Mountain Meadow massacre, and vvill tell what he knows of the sit uation. NOTICE.
