ANOTHER JUGGLE Pride in their board of county cent IN COUNTY OFFICE Right thinking citizens of Lemhi have no less cause for their lack of missicnens, in spite of recent court decisions and even the election that seemed to sustain the same public body. The board is actively pursu ing the same even tenor of its same cld way. One of the retiring county officials who came under the spell of the sys tem that makes of public ofTice a pri vate snap Bought and obtained pay that he was not entitled to when he came to retire at the end of a long hold on to the public teat. This was a case wherein he had already been paid in full for all his many terms of office from January to January; al though such terms as is well known begin not on the first day of the year but on the second Monday. When this official came to let go, however, he chose to put in his bill for twelve days in January tlmt he held the office, although he had drawn pay for the full month of Jan uary when he succeeded his prede cessor in the same office eight years before and in which he followed a time honored custom in so doing. A little later along the same board of commissioners that allowed this petit larceny of public funds adver tised for bids to be submitted for county publications and Job printing which have grown to amount to a large sum of public money every year. As one of the two printing offices of'the county The Recorder in good faith submitted a bid. which was the lower of the two and which would have cut this item of public expenditure to less than half. This bid was rejected and In Justification of the act the commissioners Issued a statement in the form of pettifogg ing indictment of this newspaper and all its works as destined to per ish and die, being subject to a heavy damage suit and also heavily mort gaged. In this statement without a doubt the wish is father to the thought, and the taxpayers as usual with this board's personal matters are made to foot their private bills and personal spites. The costs of advertising alone In connection with this sham request for bids and the commissioners' per sonal statement, all published at reg ular rates, run up Into a pretty pen ny. all to be paid by tgxes. But 1f our friends the commission ers are truly sincere about hot awarding a printing contract to one concern that happens to be mortgag ed why is it that the same contract was actually awarded to another con cern that happens to carry a much larger mortgage against It? As to that damage suit, that shall be attended to in due time and in thi proper place. It cannot be discussed here nor was it allowable In fairness for the county commissioners their hired attorney to discuss 1 the prejudice of an action pending in court. I EASTER SERVICES. METHODIST CHURCH The Easter service at the Mot ha dist church was marked by a Victory sermon, both spiritually and tempor ally considered, the one predominant thought of course being the glorious resurrection uppermost in the mind of mankind and secondly to that the victory over evil forces in the world war Just wrought by righteousness. In this last the pastor, Mr. Meredith, strongly approved the Victory loan as the foremost object of the coun try now In hand. Bfth morning and evening the church was well filled A choir provided special music. Three children were baptised and five adult persons were added to the church membership roll. EPISCOPAL. At the special services at the Episcopal church for Easter the rec tor, Mr. Stringfellow, delivered a ser mon tc the Knights Templar, who appeared at the church tn the regalia of the order. The discourse was con sidered a fine effort. An interesting program was given by the children of the Episcopal Sun day school at lb a nt on Easter day. Mrs. J. A de Barre was the organ ist and the children were drilled* by Mrs. E. H. Casterlin. the primary teacher. Thp program included ap proprlate recitations and songs, and was concluded by the opening of the mite boxes, which were found to con tain *27 contributed by the children towards the calse of missions.

Guy Hibbs. a Salmon boy who he ran his business career as an of fice worker for Tim Dore 16 year» ago at a saiarv of *15 a month has been in the city this week- Guv i« now sales manager for a large hardware eomtiany of Dulu'b. a» a «alary of IW.ftOO a rear This bov went over the top In business with out help from anv source except his mother since he was 12 vears old SOLDIERS ARRIVE FROM OVERSEAS jin Charles R. Noble, Orlln H. faugh lin and Ed Corrigan, three overseas soldiers, ail arrived home on Wed* soldiers, ail arrived uome on wed nesday. Nable and Corrigan stopped * at Leadore. while Laughlin came on ! into Salma«. All are well. Corrigan .bought his parents at Leadore w" re | y still at the sunset mine where they r were when he last heard from them, and he Jumped from the train at the r mouth of the canyon hoping to join them there. When the train pulled into Leadore the absence of the miss ing boy was explained, when Fred Chase and the father, J. J. Corrigan, jumped into a car and brought him all the way home, to make a happy gathering. Young Noble has no relatives in this county, but made his home be fore enlisting at the C. H. Benson ranch. Later he will go to see a brother at G-angevlUe. Idaho. The Salmon soldier In the bunch had grown so stout that many of his friends scarcely recognized him. He served with the patrol forces, while the other two were in the numerous battles through to the Argonne, In the 91 division, all returning safe and srund. Mrs. W. W. Birdzell, wife of the well known Leadore ranch owner, tstalned a broken arm the other day from a kicking Ford. FREDDIE BROUGH SENDS HOME REUCS Fred J. Brough ha« sent to his father in Salmon, Landlord Fred Brough, a collection of German w-ar relics gathered on the Argonne bat tle front, including one rifle and two bayonets, à t-anteen, a gas mask, two helmets, an old cap, comfort kit, be sides a number of concentrated tab lets of food. The collection makes an interesting If gruesome showing In one of the Brough windows, being the largest yet received In Salmon. Young Brough gathered the arti cles while engaged in the work with large sanitary bodies of American soldiers in burying and marking the graves cf fallen heroes. In a letter to his fathers he said that his fellow workers In this task found many un buried German soldiers still lying on the field. °n* ,°f iJH? helmets showed that it had been pierced tKfough BV flvfl bullets, so that if its owner had the headgear on his head he had no chance of escape. In his letter Freddie tells his fath er that he will recite all the story of the relics when he gets heme. H< has been «ngaged in burying 26.000 of his fellow countrymen who guve their lives for freedom. In this work on the battlefield Walter White and Al Wheeler have been driving trucks, while young Brough himself has bt employed In the mess staff Another collection of delicate art work, largely French, has been re celved by Mrs. W. B. Fowler from her two sons overseas, Roy and Karl Fowler. In this lot are etnbrodlered handkerchiefs, hand painted cards and engravings showing the beautle but none of the horrors of France Mr. and Mrs. Fowler have been hp praised of the early return of Qoy while Earl will be retained some what longer. , May Not Get County Agent. Shall Lemhi county have another county agricultural agent? That Is the question now up for discussion The board of county commissioners are said to stand against an appro prlation for the purpose or employing such ssistanle, at least to the extent tha, they it a \ < failed to authorize the employment of the agent. State Agent Musser came here a tew days ago with a young discharged soldier. Mr. Davidson of Canyon county, who had bef< re the w*ar served as an as sistant countv agent In that countv and whom Mr Musser sought to have ... ;ty appointed here._____ j Large Shipment« for Cobalt Camp 1 The Burbrldge company has a I contract from the Haynes .Stellte company for the removal of a iHrge : lot of machinery and electrical i equipment from the Italian mine and [ later will undertake the transporta tion over the mountains from Salmon of 300,000 pounds of additional ma ; chinery for the growing camp This ' latter shipment wil Ibegjn early In j May and it is said to mean large de- j velopment of the property.

Delay I« Unlikely. Plans for the Pope Shenon mill, located only eight and one half miles the property of the company being out of Salmon City, Idaho, have long since assumed the state of positive action, for much of the material has beta purchased and a part of It Is now on the ground. For the last six months there has been no question but that the mill would be erected In the near future but the action or the stockholders, as taken Wednesday (night. Insures a speeding up of oper 81 *ons to such a degree tha It Is reas on8bl >' c * r,aln the first unit of tin mill will be In commission before the snows fall next autumn. The 1'ope Shenon company, con trolled by I'tah mining men, with (\ R. Bradford Us manager, has made a painstaking and scientific CHtupaign of development work during the past three years Hnd has proved the exis tence of an enormous tonnage, both of milling and shipping ore*, with the copper predominating The ore is a sulphide In dharncter, lending it self readily to a apectal form of treat ment, known as the Bradford pro ceas, which luma out the copper In bullion form at a low rate of cost. A *00 ton crusher has been purchased and the first unit will have a capaci ty of flfky ton* per day. with the ad ditional units as occasion may arise. The proved ore bodies of the mine are stated to be of such magnitude that the mill might well be raised to 150 to *00 tons per day without making a demand for additional pros pecting.
