THREE MONTHS No. 26 Telephone PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY John LöLinb Entered as second-class matter January 4.1005, at the post office at Silver City. Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. FRIDAY, JANUARY 4, 1907. a The new year is now nearly four days old. How many of the good resolutionsyou started this year with, have you already broken? There are said to be more -wild cats in and around the wonderful Goldfield mining district than were bred around any other mining or unhappily ever camp. Happily, these auimals exist chiefly on suckers. The two local banks of Wallace, Idaho, report deposits of $2,283,711 Nov. 12, and the Press of that city is now boasting Wallace to he the richest town, per capita popu And by the on \ latioii, in the State, same token, Lewiston papers are boasting that that city's bank de posits show a per capita capital of $360. It is time now to hear from other tow ns. The Boise Commercial Club, which is undertaking to give an inaugural ball and reception in honor of the incoming state officers and members of the house of repre sentatives and senate, is making it a grander affair than any such function heretofore held in this state. The swimming pool in the Natatorium will be floored over, granidancing pavilion making it and the building will he more ela borately decorated for the occasion It is to he the than ever before, swellest ever. Boise business men Next do such things splendidly. Tuesday night is the time the affair ill be pulled off, as the prize fighters would say. And next week, the ninth ses sion of the Idaho legislature will We hope it will soon convene. get right down to business, as many matters will come up dur the brief session which will in£ demand careful consideration, and there will be little time to be wasted over a lot of little affairs. The election of U. S. Senator probably will not require more than two days, one for the sepa rate vote in the two houses and one for the joint meeting, and , and then it will be congratula- j for Senator-Elect Wut. E. . ... I How different this will tions Borah. be from many past experiences ' in choosing a senator by the Ida ho legislature! Some people in the East, we ! think, with more enthusiasm than I good judgment, have organized a club and started a third term campaign for Roosevelt. Presi dent Roosevelt has so frequently and emphatically stated that un der no circumstances will he again be a candidate that we be lieve in taking him at his word, There is no scarcity of good pre sidential timber in the party to which he belongs, or of men who will carry out the many reform measures he has begun. He has two years more to work on them and a congress to back him in the good work. Let him alone, and let the people take him at his word that he will not be a candidate again. He is young yet, and there are other fields of usefulness open to him. Al though neither a great debater or orator, he might occupy a seat in the Senate which would make some of the old fossils now there sit up and take notice. He might shine as the president of one of ourgreat universities. With him as manager, the Isthmian canal would he completed in less than a lifetime. Let him have his own way and do not force him to break the unwritten law which says no third term for anyone. While we have a Root, a Taft, a Shaw, or a Fairbanks and an uncle Joe, old as the latter is, let' us let our best president retire on the honors already won. To be sure, the arguments used by the Third Term Club are all very good. It claims that it will not be an abrogation of the unwrit ten law against a third term be cause Roosevelt has only been elected once. But the arguments in favor of a third term are spe cious and cannot be easily gain said. Here are some of them: We view w ith, alarm the evils already grown from the abuse of corporate power and see in these evils a fertile field for the dema gogue, from which might readily spring a political and social revo lution, and believe that nothing short of temperate and prayerful solicitude, on the part of the peo ple, will hold our political and social structure intact. To the people irrespective of party lines is due the credit that their President, today, is Theo dore Roosevelt. A new era of real freedom and vitality in our institutions of government and politics was demanded, and they wisely saw in him a means to at tain it. ' [ of in it So valiantly and wholehearted ly has this man reflected the as wishes of the people, that his per sonality has entered into and be come a part of every department of our national life. He 1ms won tlie confidence of be the people; and this fact alone, makes him the most potent fac tor in the solution of the present disturbing conditions. Toelimi-| I • , ■ j nate this personality—which is: E. to eliminate that confidence—at ... I , , , a time when the people, as a ' whole, are restive and trembling 'with apprehension, is to invite national disorder. So closely woven is this bond ! I between the President and the people, that he has become to them a public necessity, an essen tial part of things in the social and political fabric. Therefore, Theodore Roosevelt is not only the one logical candidate for nomination, but manifestly is the only logical President for the people. Then, to unite the people in a rally for his re-nomination, they use this scare: Already has it been demon strated that the frightened, and vengeful wealth controlling forces of the country, will resort to any means to defeat his nomination for a Presidential Third Term. We, therefore, must be on the alert and quick to action if we would save that which has al ready been accomplished by our illustrious President. of of The Outlook For 1907. Speaking from a local standpoint, as well as from a state and natio nal, the year 1907 has started off most propitiously and bids fair for Owyhee to be one of greater pros perity than any of the recently pre ceding ones. Our old and reliable mines, such as the Trade Dollar Consolidated and the DeLamargive promise of keeping up their repu tations as steady producers, while [ other properties give better promise than ever before of coming rapidly to the front and bid fair to become prominent producers at no distant day. The Potosi Company has al ready demonstrated that it has a great property, almost in the town of Silver City, which will justify the construction of reduction works and the employment of number of miners. The Banner Company is making slow but steady progress in developing its properties on Florida Mountain with exceedingly promising pros pects of making it one of the-lead ing mines in this district. It is rumored that work will be again started on the great Sinker tunnel enterp-ise, now only requir ing some methi d of making an up raise of a few hundred feet to tap and drain the water from the most famous st ring of mines ever worked here, which, with the water drained from them, would again become great producers. And there are numerous other properties both on War Eagle and Florida Mountains upon which work is being done with splendid promise, some of which may any day show up to he as great proper ties as any yet developed. At South Mountain work is now being vigorously pushed which bids fait to make that greatly neglected district take precedent with the best of the silver-lead districts south of the Couer d'Alenes. This promises to be a great year for the mines of Owyhee. At the present time every miner coming here finds ready employment, at than has heretofore large of ■ belter wages is: ( 1>u ... , many more properties will be cull a When spring opens ing for men.
