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
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
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
