THE IDAHO NEWS.
BLACKFOOT, SAÎTHDAT, JAN. 5 ;»*)
Silence is not only golden but it
inspires the mind with the idea of
greatness. Iu nature it is a mark of
the sublime. In learned men it gives
impressions of their greatness and
their wisdom. As proof in point Gen.
Harrison, president elect, has inspir
ed the people with more confidence
in his wisdom since he has been keep
ing his own counsels and withhold
ing from the public his policy of ad
ministering the affairs of the govern
ment Gen. Grant was a silent man
who kept his own counsels and the
people had the greatest respect for
him and awaited iu patient watchful
ness his eyery move. The wise ones
could not tell what was next with him.
When elected president nobody knew
of his cabinet until it was named to
the Senate. Mr. Harrison may pur
sue the same silent policy and put to
shame all guesses as to his cabinet
and the coarse he will pursue, but as
time and patience make mulberry
leaves satin, by waiting, we will know
it all in time.
Tuis New Year of 1889 begins its
cycle with many promises of good in
store for trusting, hoping mortals.
Many enter upon their labors with
renewed energies because of those
promise# as indicated by signs which
they superstitious!}- read: Miners be
lieve the year will be propitious for
mining because it ends with a uiue.
Farmers believe it will be a good crop
year because it ends in an odd number.
Cattle men are happy because the
year begins so favorably for their
cattle on the range. Republican poli
ticians see good times ahead because
of the change ot administration which
the year brings. Republican federal
office seekers are hopeful because they
want appointments and think they
stand as good chances as the other
fellows, and so on thiough the long
list of toiling, striving humanity.
Wishes are fathers to thoughts, and
it is cheering to poor mortals to be
encouraged in their expectations and
hopes of better things ahead. The
year will be a happy and prosperous
one to many if they will bnt discharge
their duties and obligations to them
selves, to their fellow men and to
their Maker. In starting the New
\ ear let all take backsights over their
course of the year 1888; correct the
inaccuracies; straighten the crooked
places; pay their vows; do to others as
they would be done by; learn to labor
and to wait and good times will be
found all along their pathway lead
ing from January to December of
1889.

fell sixteen degrees during the time
of passage and it grew so dark that

said the pastor, "1 am glad of the

come from the hill top yonder. In
that cottage there is a member of
your church. She is sick in bed with
a fever; her two little children are sick

up there and say, 'My sister, I have
brought these nice provisions in the

IDAHO.
The possibilities of Idaho are be
yond all computation. As a mining
region the Territory is first-class, and
as yet it has been but superficially
prospected. Indeed, there
areas of it that as j-et have never been
explored. With the laws governing
lead and silver adjusted on a fair and
honest basis, the response that the
Territory will make will be something
most magnificent. But after all her
greater and more enduring prosperity
will come through the application of
the water of the Territory to what
now unproductive lands. We belieye
that the surveys will demonstrate that
with the streams utilized the amount
of first-class lands that will be brought
under cultivation will exceed in acres
the full areas of Massachusetts, Con
necticut and Rhode Island. The

in
twenty acres of such land in forty
days, and if his water is ready, in
twenty days more could an Eastern
man pass the spot, he would seo a
field of gieen its nud besÿtiful as any
field of the East. That does not much
or compare with the work performed by
the men who felled the forests and
cultivated the fields of the East. The
great work is to turn the streams.
The Federal Government should do
this, or should make terms, with the
admission of the Territory, whereby
its present worthless lands or a por
tion ot them might be utilized for
that purpose. The next few years will
absolutely change the face of nature
in many regions of Idaho, and there
is no reason why it should not become
in the next quarter of a cert try a
more prosperous State than any of
the elements of wealth within her
command. The manhood of the Ter
ritory is superb. It has passed through
a crucial test during the past four
months and triumphed gloriously.
Now her people are making the pre
liminary arrangements for entering
into the Union of States. They have
the wealth needed, the wealth to draw
upon from hill and valley; they have
people enough and they are Americans
through and through. There is no
legitimate reason why the Territory
should longer be kept in the leading
strings of a Territorial government;
no reason why the people should not
carry on their own affairs in their own
way. No region of the Republic has
a right to cherish brighter hopes. The
Territory is advancing rapidly in pop
i ulation and property; it is a great
