Boise, Idaho, April 9.—It W. Mc
Bride, exposition commissioner from
Idaho to the Lewis and Clark fair, has
returned from Porlland, where he has
been for several weeks getting work
started on the Idaho building. Mr.
McBride states that when he left Port
land on Friday work on the Idaho
building was being pushed with the
largest force of men obtainable, more
than forty men being then at work on
the structure. The frame of the build
ing was up and the rafters were being
erected, while the workmen were lay
ing the rough floor. The contractors,
Burrell Contracting company, has giv
en bonds to have the exposition hall
ready by April 1, and the whole build
ing is to be ready to turn over to the
commission a month later. It is now
expected that Idaho will be one of the
few buildings that will be entirely
ready for the opening on the first of
June. Commissioner M. J. Wessels,
who is in charge of the agricultural
exhibit, is to be on the ground on April
20, aud will then begin the task of plac
ing the exhibit. There are four car
loads of the Idaho exhibit now in stor
age in Portland. This will form the
necleus for the full showing that is to
be made of Idaho's resources. More will
be rushed to Portland as soon as work
on the building has progressed far
enough so that the work of placing the
exhibits can be commenced.
Just before Mr. McBride left Port
land he succeeded in having a slight
change made iu the location of the
Utah building, so that the view of the
lagoon from the Idaho building should
not be interfered with. The commis
sioner announces there is the greatest
possible difference between conditions
in Portland and at St. Louis. At Port
land there is evident desire, so far as
the exposition management is con
cerned, to see that extortion is not
practiced. The business meu of that
city are determined to make the fair a
success, and fully appreciate that it is
intended to exhibit the wealth and re
sources of the Pacific Northwest, of
which Idaho is so considerable a part.
The management of the fair are willing
to go a long ways to see that Idaho has
a fair show in every way, aud as a
natural consequence it uow looks as
though this state would get more ad
vantage from the coming show thau
fiom all the others that have preceded
it. The same thing might be truth
fu ly said of th ■ other northwestern
and intermountain states
The Portland exposition manage
ment has decided that as soon after the
opening of the fair on Juue 1, as possi
ble, there shall be a day devoted to
each of the states, when special efforts
will be made to draw attention to that
seetiou of the great west. Governor
Gooding has been requested to uame
"Idaho Day," so that the days may be
announced aud the occasion adver
tised, while arrangements are complet
ed for the program^-which it is intend
ed shall iu all ways be appropriate to
the locality which it is intended to
The Idaho educational exhibit it is
believed will rival that of any of the
western states. Not ouly will the small
but exceedingly fine exhibit shown at
St. Louis be shown, but schools in all
parts of the state are making arrange
ments to send showings,
have recently been received from ihe
Academy of Idaho, at Pocatello, aud
from the public schools at Caldwell,
Idaho Falls aud Ammon, Bingham
county. The last named exhibit con
tains a large amouut of very fine raffia
work. The educational exhibit will be
nicely housed. A special section in
the exhibit hall has been set aside for
it. An elaborate facade, sustained by
six massive pillars, will be iu front.
This will be surmounted by a globe
beariug the word "Idaho," and under
this "Our Schools." Along the whole
front panel will be the words, "From
one example judge of the rest."
A meeting of the board of trustees of
the insane asylum at Blackfoot' has
been called by the governor to meet at
the asylum on Saturday, April 15. It
is expected that the entire board of
trustees will be in attendance, as there
is mucb business of importance to
transact. The members of the Board,
besides Gov. Gooding, are Hou B. J,
Briggs, Idaho Falls, chairman of board;
Hon. A. B. Moss, Payette, aud Hon.
Heury Jones, Malad.
The question of the site for the new
capitol buildiug is still unsettled, al
though it is clearly understood that
the board would prefer the present
site provided additional grouud could
ce obtaiued at a price within reason.
The capitol commission has expressed
a desire to secure the Central school
block, lying just west of the present
capitol block, and also State street and
the south half of the two blocks lying
just north of the capitol. This portion
of State street would be closed and on
the half blocks secured a curved street
would be constructed, with the hand
some stone Episcopal church at the
west end of the curve and the Congre
gational memorial chapel, also of stone,
at the east end. The ouly apparent
difficulty now in the way, is the desire
of some of the property owners to se
cure a high price for their property. To
this kind of a holdup the capitol com
mission does not feel like conceding,
and it now iooks likely that the com
mission, unable to secure the property
at a reasonable price, will select wbai
is called the Tiuer tract, iust north of
Fort street on Eighth. Here quite a
good sized tract of land can be ob
tained, at what it is believed is a reas
onable price. This site is but eight
blocks from the old Overland Hotel
corner, and is in what may be termed
the heart of Boise.
The board of wagon road commis
sioners, after being in session the two
first days of last week, adjourned to
meet at Warren on April 24, when the
looking over of the proposed road be
tween that place and the Big Creek
mining district. The latter is generally
regarded as a portion of the Thunder
Mountain district. It is a base metal
district, which mining men have pro
nounced shows the finest undeveloped
copper ledges in the United States.
The road into the district proposed to
be built from Warren, it is claimed,
would open the district from both the
north aud the south. There is a feel
ing that this is one of the roads that
the commission will decide to build at
once, provided the district benefitted
will meet the demand of the commis
sion that half of the expense for the
road shall be paid by those benefitted.
The commission bas not selected an
engineer as yet, and will probably not
do so until the roads that are to be
built have been practically decided on.
The regular meeting of the state
board of pardons was held on Wednes
day, aud although there were a num
ber appeared before the board, with
petitions for the pardon of those now
in the penitentiary, no action was tak
en, all petitions goiug over until the
July meeting. Convicts Mathews, C.
B. Murphy, Harry Williams aud James
Allen, were paroled ou the recommend
ation of Warden Whitney.
