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.

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. *

"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. Big in
area, big in mineral resources;
excelling in fruit production ami
