BLAOKPOOT, IDAHO. MARCH A, 18P4.
A convention of recesses is like a
ship in shallow water,
soundings every few minutes to see
"where they are at."
The President has taken no action
on the seigniorage bill y et, although it
was sent in for his signature Tuesday.
The supposition is that he will allow
it to become a law by limitation.
Butte has a murder case on hand
that bids fair to rival the Goughian
case of Chicago. It has held the at
tention of the court for four weeks,
and something like one hundred wit
nesses have been examined.
The Breckenridge-Pollard breach
of promise case is drawing immense
crowds to the court room in Washing
ton where the trial is in progress; all
the capitol people are deeply interest
ed in the racy testimony presented
from day to day.
One thing has developed during
the present Democratic administration
which is now plain to everybody:
Yice-Piesidcnt Stevenson is not giv
ing out many fat federal oIBces to his
The Democratic party expects every
member in Idaho to do his duty this
year. Those who drifted in the "dead
calm" sea two years agç must put on
sail and pull out No member is,
worthy to be a captain or a pilot who |
skulks in the hole while the ship is '
maneuvering for action.
New York goldbugs were surprised
"Wednesday when they received a tel
egram from Mr. Cleveland telling
them it would be useless to send a
committee to Washington to argue
with him concerning the Bland silver
bilL The president evidently has all
the pointers he needs in this matter.
The nomination of ex-postmaster
Ben BeaDe for mayor of Pocatello
over Attorney Blickensderfer reads
like an old gold colored optic tor
Governor McConnell in that town.
They do say that the attorney occu
pies a perfumed and upholstered niche
in the governor's heart.

The New York legislature proposes
to pass a law forbidding the raising
of any flag but that of the United
States upon public buildings. This is
a proper measure. Those who prefer
some other flag to the stars and stripes
should be permitted to emigrate to a
country where it floats to the breeze.
The demand for money at financial t
centers has considerably increased
during the past week, owing to the re
sumption of many large manufactur
ing establishments. Business men
feel encouraged by the outlook. It is
confidently expected that the activi
ties of the summer will counterbal
ance the stagnation of the past few
months, and that industry will again
be on its feet before the advent of
The Salmon City Recorder will no
longer do service for its old party. It
Was silenced and captured by a gun of
the Populist. Hereafter it will be
turned on its old friends. This is too
sad. Think of it! a gun shooting down

army circles that a gun captured froip

hovers about it which can never be

Fred Gkbhart's novel bridal gift
to his bride—a silver bath tub weigh
ing 3,200 ounces—opens a new field
to silver. It goes in the direction of
putting the country on a silver basis.
This new fad is the triumph df an
idea and may be caught up and car
ried to an extent never before dream
ed of by Mr. Gebhart himself. In a
short time The News expects to see
novelty dealers flooding the markets
with miniature silver bath tubs in
trinkets and kindred charms.
Boise City Republicans are talking

Frank Coffin for lieutenant governor,
and Bruner for attorney general. But

Eyery Democrat cannot endorse
every act of a Democratic President,
but no Democratic voter, and no Dem
ocratic newspaper, can be loyal to the
party that criticises everything
Democratic President does, and seeks
to belittle, besmirch and drag down a
Democratic administration. Grover
Cleveland is a Democratic President,
