BLACKFOOT, IDAHO, JUNE IT, 1888.
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
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
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
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.
A break in the levee of the Democ
racy of Idaho from
growing out of federal patronage and
its distribution, as some believe, i
among the impossibilities of the day.
party organization aud no opposition
can gain volume and
enough to make a crevasse and
overflow from disappointments and
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
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.

'say that Idaho is scarcely excelled by

j and found Capt Wells, our cornmis

: 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
