FRIDAY, JUNE 30,1905. We hope that when the 1906 national holiday comes around the people of our town will at least be patriotic and public spirited enough to get up a real nice little picnic. Let's do some thing real nice next year, any way. Has anyone yet repeated that old line, "What is so rare as a day iu Juue?" The fact is, we never yet knew what sort of a day that word "rare" referred to. If it was a nice, warm, bright day, without, any rain, they have indeed been rare up here. Boise will be wrestling with a municipal election next week; in fact the people of Boise are wrestling over it now. The Civic League ahd the gambling fra ternity and "everything wide open" element, always have a warm time of it at the city elec tions in "The Beautiful. !> The manner in which the Ban ner Mining and Milling Com pany's proposition is being tak en hold of by miners familiar with the property, and home people who have wished for years that it might be brought out, shows the estimation in which it has been held by local people. A big number of small blocks of stock have already been taken, without any solicitation on the part of the organizers of the com pany- _ Tuere are more miners digging in the ground in Owyhee at the present time than has been at any time for several years past. Many an old abandoned hole on War Eagle, Florida, DeLamar, South Mountain and other dis tricts, now has a prospector in it, and the miners are realizing that many a mine and prospect passed up in former days, when they could not be worked as cheaply as they can with present methods, may have a fortune in it. It will be only a little more than a year until we can sweeten our coffee with Canyon county sugar, produced at either of two factories, one at Nampa, the other at Payette, each costiug upwards of a million dollars. Work will begin on the construc tion of both these factories early in the fall. The farmers will not worry in the least because some Utah money is going into them, and does for them what money doing such from the same source is for the "Banana belt" in Fre mont county, where two factories have doubled the price of lands. That was a good idea sprung by Secretary of State Gibson, of Idaho, when he offered a résolu tion at the recent convention of state secretaries, held in Ten nessee, that every state pass a law that all corporations formed to do business in a single state only, be required to incorporate under the laws of that state; and that when they propose to do business in two or more states, they be required to organize un der a national law. Such laws would place all corporations un der conditions where their ac tions could be bet ter regulated and supervised. There would be no more going to New Jersey to j organize trusts, and to states where the least exacting laws ex isted to organize mining, sugar j or oil companies. Poor Senator Mitchell is now j supplying the world with an ob ject lesson, teachiug that it is better to walk close in the! straight and narrow path while i occupying an honorable public j position. For more than a score j of years he lias been in the high- j est councils of the nation. Now, at the age of seventy, he is going j through an ordeal which he would willingly have given his limited fortune to have escaped, and this because he is accused of having used his public position to gain a few paltry dollars, worth infinitely less to him than a scathless reputation. There are others in high position trav eling the same road; let them consider where it may lead. But there is a yellow streak in John Hippel Mitchell's makeup, which exhibited itself otice before he he prominent, and nearly woman back in Pennsylvania, probably still living, could tell more about I came wrought his ruin. A it. It was a little unkind to the morbid crowd gathered to see the meeting of Senators Dubois ! and Smoot, when Dubois visited I Salt Lake as one of the congress ional committee and Smoot was one of the committee selected to receive the visitors, that the two senators should not do some thing dramatic. They should, to gratify the crowd, at least have met with a cold, stony and speechless glare at each other. But instead of that it was, "Hello Fred!" and "How are you Reed!" and the two gentlemen walked down the isle together with Reed's arm on Fred's shoulder, just as chummy as a couple of kids. The fact is, political dif ferences do not make enemies of gentlemen, and even the women who talk about the purity of homes never intimate that t he Mormon senator is not a gentle man, and much as we may dep recate some of the Idaho sena tor's evolutions, none accuse him of being other than a gentle man. * i "The biggest silver-lead mine on earth" is surely in Idaho, but at the present time its location is a mooted question. It has for some time been claimed to be the Bunker Hill and Sullivan. Then comes the Hecla, with a ledge 30 feet wide and an ore shoot 1400 feet long, claiming the distinc tion. Both of these great mines are in the Coeur d'Alenes. But now Stanley Basin on the heul ^he Payette, steps in to claim honor, with a showing which tbem both. And the Short ^ine railway is preparing to reach the new district with a traek from Hailey. Great is Idaho! But her wonders have not yet all been told.
