The comic opera, "The Ameer," was
esented for the first time to a large
,d appreciative audience at Houck's
era house last Friday night by the
(catlello Opera company, of Pocatello,
1 amateur operatic troop which distin
lislied itself from the average run of
>me talent aggregations by the proper
inception of the different parts, put on
ith more grace and ease than is usual
manifested by the amateur.
"The Ameer" as put on by the Poea
llo people, is truly a comic opera, be
ig full of careless wit and humorous
tuations. The music is catchy, with
lively and jolly swing, added to by
le grace and beauty of~a large chorus
f splendid voices. From the rise of
he curtain until it was rung down on
he last act, the audience was again and
gain surprised into applause by the
asy and delightful rendition and per
ormance of prominent parts. The pro
duction was free from "amateur blend
rs," which left the "comic" part
•ntirely to the lines of the piece, and
hese situations were admirably brought
iut by C. D. Smith as the "Ameer," Mr.
Arthur Cohn as Lord Chamberlain and
Mr. Tom Gilmore as the court jester, as
sisted by the entire staff of performers,
Mr. Frank Seally as the bold brigand,
also being especially good.
In fact, the entire company showed
careful training and a natural swing of
stage mairunerlsms, and this, coupled
with the excellent choruses and splen
did solo parts should insure for them
a success wherever the "Ameer" is ren
dered. Samm's orchestra, than which
there is no better musical organization
in the state, added to the spriglitliness
of the piece.
A greater part of the company was
composed of students of the Academy,
and, unlike other troupes that have vis
ited Blackfoot, conducted themselves as
iadies and gentlemen, and made friends
by their deportment both on and off the
Attempt! Life of Passenger on Wood River
Train and is Killed by Mherriff.
Bellevue, Ida., May 9.—An unknown
man, said to be a sheepherder, ran amuck
on the Wood river branch train today
and after slashing the throat of one of
the passengers with a knife, was shot
and instantly killed by Constable Wil
liam Shafer, who was on the train., The
train was run back to Bellevue and the
dead man and his victim were taken off.
The injured man is nanfed Moore. He
is from Salt Lake and represents Col

Hailey, May 9.—The insane man who
was shot on the train today near Picabo
by Constable Shafer of Soldier, was an
Austrian. No one here knows his name.
He came up from Shoshone this morn

was seen wandering about aimlessly
and it was thought from his strange ac
tions that he was suffering from de
lirium tremens.
Investigation led to

it came back, the idea being to have him

Old Site Is Retained.
Boise, Idaho, May 7.—State Wagon
Road Commissioners M. E. Lewis and
Joe Wheeler left Saturday from Weiser
for the Salmon river country. It was the
intention of the commissioner to follow
the Little Salmon down lo Golf, where
the Big Salmon will be struck. They
will then follow up the main Salmon on
the line of proposed Thunder Mountain
trail. After a thorough Inspection of this
trail, the commission will proceed to
Gig Creek mining district, and make
a careful inspection of the proposed
road from there to Warrens, where a
state wagon road will be struck,
is one of the roads that It is generally
supposed that the commission will decide
on building, If the proposed route proves
feasible. There seems to be little doubt
of this latter fact.
The commission will then -proceed to
the Clearwateir region inspecting the pro
posed roads and trails up the south fork
of that stream to the Buffalo Hump,
Dixie, Elk City and Newsome districts.
There aire several of these proposed
roads which the commission will look
The Capitol building commission has
finally determined to build the new cap
ital building on the site of the present
capital. The ground will be more than
doubled In size. The Central school lillock
has been purchased for $25,000, the school
board being allowed the use of the build
ing during the coming year. This block
was originally a portion of the capitol
site, but thirty years ago the territorial
legislature made the school district a
present of the block of ground that the
state Is now buying back for $25,000.
The estimated value of the ground at
present is $50,000.
Since a decision has been reached by
the capiltol building commission the city
council passed an ordinance giving au
thority to the mayor and clerk to deed
to the state forty feet of State street
for the two blocks directly north of the
capitol site. This will give the site a
length from east to west of 6S0 feet and
a depth of 300 feet. Will enable the car
rying out of the plans for the building
and grounds that were partially deter
mined on at the close of the legislative
The penitentiary commissioners have
commenced the construction of a women's
ward at the state prison here. A gang
of prisoners are now getting out rock,
and the prison stone cutters are dress
ing it to size and form for a small stone
building, to be erected on the site form
erly occupied by the warden's residence.
This is clase v to the entrance to tlie
prison stockade, but outside the wall.
The plans decided on for the new build
ing show a handsome little structure.
There are now two female convicts in
the Idaho penitentiary.
The last legislature provided for the
keeping of female convicts in prisons
outside the state, and the commissioners
began to make arrangements to keep
these two prisoners in the Utah pen.
It was. learned, however, that there was.
danger of their being released by order
of some state court, on a writ of habeas
corpus. It was then determined to
build a women's ward here. Plans were
at once drawn and work on the structure
has commenced.
Governor Gooding left yesterday for
North Idaho, expecting to be absent from
ten days to two weeks, before his return
he may visit Helena and inspect tiie cap
itol building and grounds tnere. If he
makes this trip he will probably be ac
companied by Judge Beatty and Secre
tary of State Gibson, both of whom are
members of the capitol building commis
sion with the governor.
The governor's visit to the north at
this time was for the purpose of mak
ing an examination of the sites offered
for the branch insane asylum to he lo
cated in some one of the northern coun
ties. The governor on May 3 appointed
the following gentlemen as members of
the commission to select the site ir. com
pany with himself: Dr. J. W." Givens,
superintendent of the Insane asylum at
Blackfoot; Robert Hayes of Pocatello;
James Stephenson and Robert Aikman of
Boise, The entire commission accompa
nied him. The commission will first
visit Gencssee, where they expect to be
tomorrow night. They will also visit
and inspect sites at Juliaetta, Oroflno,
Peck, Culdesac, Joel and Coeur d'Alene
city. They will also visit Lewiston and
if the tflne can be
probably Moscow,
A proclamation will be issued by the
governor tomorrow prohibiting the im
portation of sheep into Idaho from Mon
tana, Utah, Nevada, Oregon and Wash
ington, on account of the preva
lence of scabies among the sheep
in those states. The proclamation pro
vides that sheep shall not be driven
or brought int 9 this state, except on the
exhibit of a clear bill of health by a
government inspector. This certificate
must not be over ten days old.
On May 5th the governor issued a pro
clamation calling attention to the general
prevalence of scabbies among the sheep
in most of the southern portion of the
state, and quarantining all sheep within
certain geographical limits.
The governor has accepted the invita
tion of the Lewis and Clark exposition
management to attend the celebration of
the one hundredth anniversary of Lewis
and Clark's visit to the Pacific northwest,
which is to be held in Portland on
June 1st, when the exposition will be
thrown open to the public. The governor
will be attended by all the members of
his staff at the opening, and it is ex
pected that many leading men of the
state will also be present.
To attend this meeting Governor Good
ing was compelled to decline the invita
tion to deliver the memorial day address
to the Grand Army of the Republic and
the citizens generally on May 30.
A proclamation has been issued de
claring Wednesday, June 14th. 1905, Flag
Day, and urging that the American Flag
be displayed on all public buildings and
wherever possible on private buildings
also. This is a holiday which has been
celebrated for a number of years under
the auspices of the Grand Army in many
of the eastern states.
The celebration of
such a day is gradually extending itself
into the frontier western and southern
By Governor Gooding Rolntlvo to The

State of Idaho, Executive Office
Boise, Idaho. May 2, 1905—Whereas, I
have received statements from reliable
woolgrowers and stockmen of the state
