Entered as second-class matter January
4,1905, at the post office at Silver City,
Idaho, under the Act of Congress of
March 3, 1879.
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.
