NUGGET y< All the Local Mirvlng Nows Accur ately Chronicled. H y 'C y Subscription Rates. ONE YEAR. SIX MONTHS ... THREE MONTHS $3.00 1.50 Telephone No. 26 Published every Friday by John Lamb Entered as second-class matter January 4,1905, at the post office at Silver City, Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. FRIDAY, APRIL 14, 1905. Representative C. C. Moore, of Fremont county, has sent Nug get a fine illustrated folder, des criptive of "The Banana Belt." It is just such a little book as every county in Idaho should publish and circulate this year of Idaho's prosperity. And the commission has not yet determined on a site for the state capitol building. We fear that all the gentlemen of the commission did not read what Nugget recently had to say about locating it on the bench, on the south side of the river. The people of Portland are making a big effort to have the private car outrage abolished. They show that the regular freight charges on a car load of cabbages, for instance, from Southern California, is $85, to which, for the privilege of using one of Armour's private refriger ator cars, and additional charge of $60 is imposed. Let the fruit growers of Idaho give the illus trations of like instances of ex tortion on fruit shipped east and perhaps the Interstate Commerce Commission may take the mat ter up and do something for the people's relief. The people at Lewiston and Grangeville, and the farmers and business men in the intervening territory, are demonstrating that they are made of the right sort of leather. Disappointed at seeing the two rival railway com panies make a truce and call off the two corps of engineers sent out to locate railway lines be tween the two towns, the people have determined to take the matter into their own hands and build a railroad themselves. They will do it, and will get their products to market by river from Lewiston, independent of the railways. They will also make the gap between North and South Idaho considerably shorter. Commissioner of Immigration, Labor and Statistics Miller is making active efforts to adver tise the resources of the state. He is making a request that every county in the state assist him by supplying descriptive matter for distribution. In view of the fact that the travel will be very heavy through the state during the Lewis aud Clark Ex position, and that many of the people attending the fair will visit the west for the purpose of acquiring information regarding the opportunities for investments or for home building, with ar rangements made for stopping over in Idaho, Mr. Miller will make an effort to get as much information concerning the re sources of tha state in their hand as possible before they reach here. For this purpose he pro poses to have men meet them on the trains and distribute litera ture and impart information be fore they arrive. It is very im portant that this should be done. While parties are riding on the trains they have leisure to read up concerning matters in which they are interested, and it will leave a lasting impression on their minds, while the same mat ter would not probably intere. t them later on. When they get to the fair they will be loaded down with all sorts of advertis ing matter, which they will never find time to peruse. In our opin ion, the best place to disiribute this sort of information is at the points of departure of the trains. Suppose a man could be located in Chicago or Kansas City to watch the departure of all ex cursion trains, board them and talk Idaho to all the passengers he could interest. If he were well informed and could answer such questions about the state as would be asked, tell the persons that they could get stop-over checks, and investigate fer them selves, give them descriptive matter of such portions as they might desire to visit, etc., lie would do more that would im press them favorably than ten times the amount of literature distributed at Portland could do. Mr. Miller is on the right ■ track, if he will carry out the plan as he proposes. All that will be required to interest peo pie in Idaho is to give them an opportunity to learn the won derful resources the state pos sesses. MusicaJe.
