With all the bank failures coming so thick and fast, the people still have confidence in the administration and are looking for a return, in fullness of time, of happv, prosperous dava. One of the most striking eulogies pronounced on Jefferson Davis was that of one of bis former slaves. He said : "He never failed to raise his hat when I pulled off mine to him." There is a big deal on in Iowa be tween the Populists and Prohibition ists, and, if it goes through as now j planned, the fight for the control of state affairs will be an interesting one. The Populists are to indorse Prof, j Aylcsworth, who was recently nomi nated by the Prohibitionists. There will be concessions on both sides, the Prohibitionists giving indorsements to the populists' money schemes in re turn for the support the farmers will lend the temperance people on the pro hibition questiou. It is claimed that there is but little doubt that the affair will go through as now planned. As. John P. Rae, ex-commander in-chief of the G. A. R., approves of the new pension roles laid down by Secretary Hoke Smith. ' They are all right, of course," he says; "no de serving old soldier will be injured by them, and the rolls will be cleared of fraudulent pensioners." The followers of Dr. Briggs not agreed as whether they shall fol low him out of the church, or stav with it and continue the fight inside the lines of the organization. Many are strongly urging the latter course are in the conviction that they will win in the end. They maintain that the proportion of the general assemblv composing the majority did not rectly represent the proportion siding with them in the church cor at large. They propose to carry on a campaign of education until the church shall * commit itself to their views. If any body has flattered himself that he has heard the last of the Briggs contro versy, he was mistaken.—Standard. Impossible. A break in the levee of the Democ racy of Idaho from any pressure growing out of federal patronage and its distribution, as some believe, i among the impossibilities of the day. The administration party organization aud no opposition can gain volume and recognizes the momentum enough to make a crevasse and cause overflow from disappointments and dissatisfaction. an If there should happen to be disappointed in their efforts to control and distribute the patronage in the state, they could not, if they would, shake the people in their confidence in the administration, nor in the party organization because they recognize the fact that the organization is back ed up by the administration. Yes, a diastrous break is impossi ble, and there ought not to be friction enough from any source to cause irri tation. From the foundation of the government there have been establish ed rules for its guidance in ail matters pertaining to the distribution of tronage and no individuals have been able to any pa ever vary or change these rules to suit themselves. Should the good times which the people are longingly looking for again this year or next year, no polit ical party or organization can defeat the Democratic party at the next elec tion, and Idaho Democrats should be in harmony and in ling to swell the pumbers of the victors ang to enjoy the fruits of the victory. come >ow in Effect. - r, .- ; ?T. 9w«!

Yesterday, our first day, we were principally in the Horticulteral build ing. The display of fruit is unquest ionably more varied and more excel lent than the people of this country or of the world probably, have ever seen. ; These fruits are of course princi 1 pally from the United States and Mexico and 1 am glad to be able to 'say that Idaho is scarcely excelled by 1 any. We visited the Idaho buildiDg j and found Capt Wells, our cornmis j sioner, full of work. The building is : a curiosity, being built of lava rock , and logs of native fir and pine in the form of a hunter's cabin with several large and small rooms, fire places, and ornamented with animals and birds, set up by the taxidermist and skins of animal^ all killed in Idaho. The building is so unique and so dif feront from any others, that crowds of people are pouring in and out all the time, and Capt. Wells bas had two it or three propositions for ils purchase, ; In this, among other curious aud deli j cate work, we saw some of the work of the Blackfoot Asylum patienta. 1 should have said rolling chairs with man, are charged for at 75 cents per hour.
