He further I I I : j j i I ! j sugar factory, and its probable site is four miles north of Arco. Its likely lo cation is either oil the llansbrougli ranch or the old Mat or Jim Boyle ranch where there is all the necessary facilities for the successful operation of a factory. We have been informed that [ tlu* Utah Construction Company, which | j owns many hundreds of acres of goo« l , beet land in this part of Blaine county, are the men who are boosting for the j factory. Men who are familiar with the sciil arnuiid Arco say it is thc most I T'co'ifp. . f imiv in Idaho, and predict that if the factory is established there j in.- I ia-1 will soon have a valuation of ' $260 per acre for beet culture. Since writing the. above we have been informed by Superintendent Vnr says that this immediate section of the factory before long, and that the Ab erdeeji country will most likely be the elioseli locality.

AN UNAUTHENTICATED ROBBERY Few Blackfoot Volun teers for Mexico Servict Lust Sunday evening a large mass meeting was held in the Orpheum The Hire for the purpose of inducing re cruits to enlist in the Second Idaho In ........ .... XT .. , i . . . . 1 fan try ot the National Guard, which is short of men. j The meeting was called to order by hiii-ch * Rev. Austin, of the Hnptist who is also acting as recruiting officer upon the rerpiest of Governor Alexan der. The Woodman band volunteered their services for the occasion, and the Orpheum Theatre was also a gratis contribution. The meeting was called to order bv the recruiting officer, and Rev. Strom<|uist invoked the divine blessing. The Rev. Barnstable made a few brief and pertinent remarks, and Col. McCall, a recruiting missionary,! imparted some military information and solicited and answered many ipiestions ' concerning enlistment, and stated that he would remain after the meeting and receive the names of those wishing to enlist. Although the meeting whs ■argel.v attended, principally by women f a,l, l g'rl*. there was a lack of inter •***♦• M,l| l even enthusiasm was not very noticeable. While all seemed to be anti-Mexican, they were not very war like, and none were willing to leave their happy homes and rally round the , ling in the land of the Greaser and the actus. While tliei patriotism among our people, or any friendship for our Mexican neighbors, they are attempting to harbor a hope that a cruel war is not inevitable, for they seem to think that war is hell, win or lose. Occasionally we hear the dec la ration that "If I was not too old, or or my son was not too young, we would lose no time in getting to the front.." Rev. Austin is a fair sample of the hon est. conscientious, patriotic citizen, and he is credited with saving that he is is not a lack ot «•Hlii.g to accommodate the governor by rccemng tin* names ot volunteer ve eruits, Vmt Hint lie will not use liis in flucnce to eonvert any young man to be come a soldier. As far as we are able to learn, no Blackfoot boy lias yet enlisted, and we know of none contemplating doing so. Col. Jack Henderson, .of Arco, has gone to Boise to ioin his company, and to morrow W. 0. Allen, who is well known in Blackfoot and a member of an 111 i nois military company, left for Boise to enlist. Jess Waddell, who is a mem ber of Company H of the Boise Home Guards, went to Boise last Tuesday to investigate the chances of going to the Mexican border.
