ESTABLISHED 1886 SALMON, IDAHO, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13. 1918 VOL. NO. XXXIII, NO. «M~ THIS QUARANTINE STILL HOLDS GOOD It seems the Judicial interpréta n of the quarantine laws and the | interpretation put upon them by the ! solute citizens of Challis people j ere in sharp conflict, Judge Cowen in2T on one side of the contention f.nd the Challis people, who want to I p.otect their citizens from the epi-j (h-mis, being on the other. The judge called fir the military arm of the | s'ate government to enforce his ' commands but the demand was ir- ' i.gular and the governor declined to j act. as reouested. Thu; is thé court i overruled and his acts made of no force or binding effect upon anybody , concerned. The ruling of! the state! authorities is that a quarantine is a ! auarantine in spit^pif any court, or der, when the quarantine is invoked save human life. So we seem still to be guaranteed life, liberty and the pursuit of happi ness by the governor of Idaho though the courts may say us nay. I It is pertinent to inquire at this ! time "What's the matter with Moses ; Alexander?" And the answer comes rolling down the Salmon, river val ley, ''He's all right." A phone message Sunday from a member of the Custer county council of defense afford« the information , that 'the Challis quarantine is still | rigidly maintained. The decree of he local health board is enforced by strong public sentiment it seems and an armed force ia back of that public sentiment. A report that an armed mob was on the • road from Mackay caused the mobilization of the Challis reserve one day last week and the defense of Warm Spring pass, a modern Thermopolae, was decided upon. The Mackayites decided that discretion was the bet ter part of valor ar.d there has not been a case of flu infection or a death from violence to date. BROSNAN'S HISTORY OF IDAHO By_ John E. Rees, Editor Pioneer De partment of The Idaho Recopier. Charles Scribners' Sons have just ptblished a history of Idaho, a book of 237 pages, written by Prof. C. J. Brosnan, Superintendent of Public Schools of Nampa, Idaho, for eighth grade school work. This Is a splen did work and the best history of the state, especially for schools, that has been published to date. Idaho was a part of the Oregon country and previous historians have treated her history as secondary, if at all. But this state ha» a separate and typical history of its own begin ning back in very- early days, forjf^t .was upon her soil was erected the! first establishment and the first fort ever built the entire Northwest coast. 'Many of the former writers of the state have compiled our his-1 tory as if it were composed of or limited to three or four mining, camps. Lemhi county, which is so j full , of pioneer history and which has had such an influence on the fu-; ture history asd shaping of our state, j has "usually been passed over^by the "* " " * * ~ * " " mention of a Mormon fort in the 50's and ?. placer strike in the '60's. Mr. Brosnan's history is a succinct and readable history of the early growth and development that was wrought bv the pioneer, all enfolded in an orderly and understandable treatment, especially of those mat ters of greatest concern and inter est. The history of the aboriginies Is such that taken in connection with the map of the habitats of our Indi ly impressing on the mind the gro^ ual shaping of our commonwealth and giving one the proper insight of, the manner in which our state came to be as it is Manv rare, out of date and historic pictures of Idaho per an tribes which is here presented in the best form for mental grasp, makes a short but concise statement of the Indian inhabitants of our state. The many maps in this book are of inestimable value tor the proper understanding of our* advance and development, especially those showing Idaho's outline from 184S to 1x68. being the only means of vivid luctnu i» u niiii the trend of history given. Here we are told of Captains Lewis and Clark, their advent into the Colum-j bia river basin via Lemhi: of Sacaga-1 v.ea, Lemhi's national heroine: of Captain Bonneville's cantonment on sonages and scenes are reproduced here and manv appearing for the first rime ' Mv reason for calling attention to this publication at this time through these columns is that it is the only Salmon river; of the establishment of the Mormon fort on the Lemhi; »nd many incidents of the early trapping days. Here for the fl rs5 UOJ D- xavrav ---- time appears a scene of historic °'° iFort Lemhi: of the old town of Sal-r * " Shoshoni tnon; and one of Lemhi's [Indians. There are also a few minor mis takes to guard against. The Sho shoni was the third largest family of Indians in the United States in itht extent of territory occupietl and hot 'numericallv." Chief Snagg, be ing a nephew of Chief Cameahwait, the friend ot Lewis and Clark. w*as * Shoshoni and chief of the Shosho his and not of the "Bannacks.' how "u-r some Bannacks belonged to and »malgamated with his tribe. Chief Snagg was always friendly to the Whites and especially the Mormons and when they left the Lemhi they gave to him several hundred bushels °t wheat. It was the renegade Ban hacks from southern Idaho and west ern Montana that attacked and drove tlb Mormon» out of Lemhi. The 5-emhis lett for Fort Hall in 1907 and »O' "1909." These are but minor mistakes. The ®a;n history is splendidly written. fy.. -y y ys A'"' -' .yy, fry/ r.'f - XSSSr' / ■ yy. à/y /S'M Yi II V Stou CAU. i -* ^llàr /■ in y i ty ed the for the for be cal of *7* £ By courtesy of H. C.

"LOO-OOK" One morning not long ago the gen ial host at Miller's station. L. P. Mil ler. went out to the barnf&rd to have a talk with hi* chickens. This Is a habit with many person* who find in their fowls genial companions. So it Is with their dogs and horses and cattle and in fact all the domestic animals with which mankind la as sociated. On the occasion of Mr. Miller's In terview with his fowls he was met by a fine Wyandotte rooster ahead of all the other chickens in coming to ward him. Chanticleer was especial ly friendly that morning In his wel come. talking a steady flow as he drew near. Then all of a sudden he tilted his head to one side as he saw something up the mountain side. "Loo-ook," he said Just as distinct ly as any rooster ever gave warning to his mates of danger that he was first to discover. Mr. Miller did look and what he saw caused him to creep back to the house and take down his trusty rifle from the wall. At the same Instant hi* son Charley also appeared on the scene with a gun In hand also and at the simul taneous crack of their weapons two fine deer came rolling down the hill.
