All this trouble, expense and litiga tion come of conflicting laws, but these must come before the people will awaken from their lethargy and elect a good law making legislature. The counties are now taking lessons in the school of experience. Removal of Snake River Bridge. A great deal of idle talk is being indulged in about removal of Suake ri\er bridge. It is idle because noth ing of the kind will be attempted as we understand the matter. The com missioners are making the necessary repairs for the rear and all the feel ing that is being worked up by some West Siders is a useless wear and tear of the flesh for nothing. There is a wise old piece of advice: Never cross a bridge until you get to it, which may be altered to read : Never get mad over the removal of a bridge until it is moved. West Side l' ointe r ». The West Side has an aspirant for the sheriff's office, also one who ex pects the title of commissioner tacked on to his name after the fali election. H. LaliDurtv.oneofour prosperous farmers, expects to be a landlord in the near future. May his highest am bition be reached. D. F. Keeler, having nothing else to do while the roads are in such horrid condition, is making many noticable improvements on his ranch. The rapid advancement of the plow and improvements on this side of the river, lias necessitated the "old set tlers,'' the cayotcs and badgers, to seek a habitation in a more congenial clime, where they can pursue their calling without being disturbed by the busy, bustling farmers who are now putting in their best licks to make the West Side the garden spot of Bingham county. This year will see more waving fields of grain on the West Side than any heretofore. All the farmers are making preparations to double their last year's seedings. Geo. MoNabb has sold his ranch aud left for parts unknown, otherwise the West Side stands as she did a few weeks ago. , F. SCHOOL report. On Friday afternoon, March 16*.b, the Fairyiew school closed the contest that has continued through the term of school. The victorious side being presented with a beautiful picture. After applauding for the teacher's speech, tho Belle arose to express her feelings, winch nearly as I cau remem ber ran as follows : "We thank Miss Scott for the pic turc,-and-wc think it's nice,-and. were glad, worked hard enough to earn it,-and~we think it's nice,-und-we feel thankful we have got it,-and-we thank Miss Scoit for it,-and-we think it's nice," It is evident from this that the bell lias too large a clapper. The next was a speech by Miss Mabel Pyle, which was very good. Master George Hobbs next delivered a very good speech, as also did Miss Ella Wilson. The visitors present numbered three. Daisy. Dr- Price's Cream Baking Powder Most Perfect Made. MINING PRIVILEGES. Fort Hall Reservation to dire Up Its Buried Ores. A TREATY OF LEASE MADE The Indians Hare Entered into a Treaty by Which the Reservation Mines May be Worked. The News is reliably informed that the Indians on the Fort Hall reserva tion have, by treaty, made a lease of mining privileges of all mines on the reservation to a company beaded by Butte City capitalists. Under this treaty this company is given the exclusive right to prospect and mine wherever minerals are found on their lands, aBd for this right the Indians are to be paid certain stipu lated sums which are satisfactory to them. < )f course this agreement must be approved in Washington, and there is where trouble may be expected, if any trouble is to come. It is generally be lieved that there are several rich mines on the reservation, and it has been hinted that these were located long ago; if they can be worked it will bring neb profits to Bannock and Bingham counties, to Blackfoot and Pocatello. But wont the old timers, the pioneers who have been hovering around the reservation for these many years raise a howl when they ieam there are no plums in the pudding for them. There will be some elevated kicking when they find themselyes left on the outside. Positively Agreed U/wn and Settled It matters not what issues may be raised in the coming ooinpaign there are two things which have been agreed upon and positively settled by the Democratic party. These two have not been proclaimed from the house tops but they have been tacitly settled by the rank and file of the party, and they will be adhered to, to the end. The first of these is never again to go into a state convention without candidates seeking places on the state ticket. The folly of a course of this kind was fully exemplified in the two preceding state conventions. The par ty then showed its own weakness and made itself an object of ridicule and sport for the opposing parties. It will never be guilty of a similar sin against itself again. Better perish before the day of convention. The second is never to allow its legislators to repeat , the puerile school boy conduct of vot ing for a United States Senator as was exhibited by Democratic members in the legislature of 1890. The conduct of the members then was unbecoming grave law makers; it was uncompli mentary to the men voted for. The party will never tolerate the like again. The News is positive on these points because it lias been given expressions by leading members touching them from all over the state. The man who wins a place on the state ticket this year will have his name before the people prior to the convention, aud the legislators will make no more boy ish exhibitions of themselves in vot ing for a senator. These things are settled. Seed Wheat and Oats. D. H. Bieibnn has a lot. of Seed Wheat aud Oats for sale. Call early. FOB SALE.
