FRIDAY, JULY 21, 1905. When, the Idaho Editorial As sociation returns from its outing the members will be so rejuven ated and their editorials will be so sprightly that it will seem like having a new set of papers all over the state. From the brief accounts heard from them they are having a. grand time, and the vacation will do them all good. They are visiting Cali fornia points this week. With the building of the elec tric suburban railway system, which now seems assured, con necting the Snake river valley towns, and the forming of good roads associations to improve the public highways, traveling will become a pleasure. It will not be long until the residents of Nampa and Caldwell will be enjoying advantages equal to those living in the suburbs of New York City. The investigation of the affairs of Sheriff Havird, of Ada county, promises to be of a somewhat sensational -nature. He is ac cused of making collections which were not turned ip to the county and of making various improper charges. Sheriff Hav ird first came into the calcium light. of public notice when he discharged Deputy Sheriff Two good, a few months ago, for raiding a gambling joint in Boise City. By all menus, "Mr. Nugget," let the people know who is referred to as "the same old gang."—Ava lanche. It isn't so much the"oldgang" in which the people are interest ed now as it is the gang who "have already agreed upon a county ticket for next year, if it can be pushed through the con vention." It may be a different bunch; who knows? If it were not asking too much, some of the people would probably like to know who the gang are going to have on their ticket, also. The victory of the republican ticket at the recent municipal election in Boise seems to be re ceived with favor in all parts of the state, judging from com ments by the press. It is not likely the event would have at tracted so much attention but for the the strong opposition by the the Statesman to its own party candidate * for mayor. Hon. James A. Pinney is one of the pioneers of the state, has served as mayor of Boise before with entire satisfaction, and is a popular favorite in all localities. The removal of all obstruc tions in the way of the Shoshone Falls Power Co., Ltd., means a great deal to the Twin Falls dis trict. The company has had to fight its way through the courts for years against the powerful opposition of Senator W. A. Clark of Montana. Public senti ment is all in favor of the com pany and against the senator, who has never spent a dollar or lifted a hand for the benefit of Twin Falls. By rights Shoshone falls belongs to the state of Ida ho and if there are any means by which the crooked survey line can be righted this should be done as soon as possible. It is a pity that the Idaho schools should be deprived of the reve nue they would obtain through the sale or lease of Shoshone falls because of the abominable sur vey.—Twin Falls News. This is the closing paragraph of President Roosevelt's speech to the National 'Editorial Asso ciation: "There is not in my cabinet one man to whom it is not a financial disadvantage to stay in the cabinet, nor is there one who does not have to give up something substantial, some thing that it is a financial hard ship to give up, in order that he may continue in the service of the nation and have only the re ward for which he looks and for which he cares, the consciousness of having done service that was worth rendering. I hope more and more throughout this na tion to see the spirit grow which makes such service possible. I hope to see the sentiment of the country as a whole become such that each man shall feel borne in on him whether he is in public or private life, and, mind you, some of the greatest public services can be best rendered by those who are not in public life, that the chance to do good work is. the greatest chance that can come to any man or any woman in our generation or in any other generation, and to feel that if such work can be well done, it is in itself the amplest reward and the amplest prize. The Press has no disposition to speak disparagingly of any mining camp on earth, but it is often instructive to draw com parisons. For several years past the new camps of Nevada have attracted world wide attention. Money has flowed into them; capitalists have eagerly sought investments, and the boom has been properly on. The stock market has given fortunes to many and so too have the mines. Here is a comparison worthy of much consideration: The divi dends from the mines in the Coeur d'Alene district amount to more than the total output of all the new camps of Nevada, and still there is no great flurry here. Everything moves very quietly along, with no unneces sary noise. It is to be wondered at, however, that opportunities in the Coeur d'Alenes are not more eagerly looked after by men of capital. There are scores of properties in course of devel opment in this district that give all the evidence of making mines that present producers did with a similar amount of work. No stronger evidence of merit could possibly be presented for a min ing district than a record of pro duction and profits.—Wallace Press. A commercial club has been organized at the new town of Twin Falls, in order to see the many advantages of that thriv ing city properly represented. [and a gold watch given'em.
