Governor McConnell's Opportunities. It does not require a prophet nor the son of a prophet to foresee and to foretell that the fate of the Re publican party in Idaho in the cam paign of 1894 is largely in the hands of Governor McConnell. He who runs can read. The Democratic parti will be kept well in hand. National Committee-man Beane and State Com mittee-man Tilliughast wilt see that the organization is kept up to the standard, and when the movement for 1894 is made it will be made with a perfectly drilled and equipped army, encouraged and backed by the Nation al army under the same banners. The Populists are organizing and drilling today. The recent council of * war of leaders at Boise means some thing. It means a more thorough or ganization than the party has ever had. It means a thorough drill and equipment of its forces, and a general season of recruiting from now until the summer of 1894. They will act under cool, conservative but their bravest leaders. Mr. Wilson, chairman of the Re. publican forces, will endeavor to keep his men well in hand. He is a cau tious, careful and gallant leader, and, if properly supported, will hold his army in good fighting trim. It is plain to see that in 1894 we are to have a strong triangular con test with the three fighting columns pretty evenly matched. There is no promise of a combination of either two against the other. Each column will contend for its own supremacy- for its own victory. This evidenily will be the natural order of the strug gle. But circumstances within the next two years may change every thing. Governor McConnell's admin istration may spoil the best laid schemes of men—even of his own party. If he makes himself an ultra partisan and uses his administration to hold the Republican party together and to strengthen and build it up against the gjjpd government and liest interests of the state, it is easy to foresee combinations, aud all guns turned against him and his party as common target. It is easy to foresee the press of the opposition fighting him from every stand point. The governor ba3 a golden oppor tunity to make himself strong in the affections of the people. He has » splendid chance to advance the cause of the state. To rise above partisan ship is to draw the people close to him; to stoop to it is to drive them away. a The State Agricultural College. Tbe gravest and most perplexing question before the legislature is: Has the time come to locate it? Un der existing conditions are we ready to locate it, and to make the needed appropriations for the foundations of so great and popular an institution as one of these colleges has grown to he? If these questions can be answered in the affirmative there should i>e no delay in selecting ibe place and pass ing the bill of location. If they can rot be, tben the legislature should waste no time on bills introduced in favor of certain localities but should pass on to Ibe considération of matters demanding the speediest attention. There cun be no division of senti ment in tbe matter of advantages a location must possess in order to win the college. The place offering the greatest number of these supported and sustained by the generous con tributions of its citizens will unques tionably be the one selected. The accessibility of the place, the climate, the character and produci Iveness of j the soil, the quantity of water, the ' altitude, tbe adaptability of tbe soil j to tbe growth of cereal», vegetable*, fruit«, et-a, all come in for oa.efni O Double Fold Dress Goods from 25 to IT cents per yard.

O' ~0 consideration and must lie taken to gether before judgment is passed in favor of any one locality. The News is proud to see a strong disposition on the part of the mem bers of the legislature to foster and build up the educational enterprises of the state, and, it trusts, if they can fiud it consistent with the best inter ests of all, to locate the Agricultural College at tills session that they will give it to that place from which, wln-n in full operation, it can bring the greatest good'to the greatest numtier. Blackfoot possesses all the require ments for such an institution, and Blackfoot's claims must l>e presented when it appears that our law makers are r -ady to take into e msideiatt >n such claims and pass upon a bill of location. ford B.

As an evidence of his un dying affection and tender love for her and his desire to lie with her his last words were: "I know I am going where Lucy is." more The committee on Slate Affairs in - Total ilebt of the statt* Jan * uary l»t, 1893. exclusive of bond* Ä ' 1 ^245,797.04; probable asset*, $250, oon * .: , # AO,, va. 200; giving n surplus of $4.482 ®6. the present legislature submitted »! partial report showing the following faets : Total bonded debt. $251,000, and this may be increased to $475,000.

Tlie estimate of expenses for the en tire state government for the next two years is put at $328 758. Representative Barrett's reso lutinn of enquiry into tbe origin and causes of tlie Cœur d'Alene troubles was in tlie right direction. If a war has been waged in Idaho, and the\ tell us down this way that it has lte«-n, let us find out something altout it. If Billy Pitterson was struct, let us find out who struck him. The repre sentative was right on his proposi tion. ! < j Before the brave~H«arra invaded | Peru he drew a line on the ground | and said to his comrades: '•All you who are willing to follow me will come on this side; all who are not ; willing will remain on that side." 1 Bingham county legislators are not j willing to concede the poor voter even i the expression of choice. They draw the lines of division and say. 'Git over there, and stay where I put you." Briggs tried that once, hut where is Briggs. ■ i tbe liancsi Death has eutered field of the great of 1893 with derful activity.

Governor Mc Connell holds the vantage ground with a Republican laxly, but if he should lower himself from the states man to the partisan he might as well hang his harp on the willow free ami weep over his lost op,an<tutltties.
