THE LAW MAREKS.
Boise Letter. Boise, Idaho, Jauuary 16.—It is con fidently predicted that the ninth ses siou of the legislature will go down in the histoiy of the state as being com posed of the most earnest and deter mined set of men Idaho has ever called together to do her bidding. The mem bers throughout, so far as can be judged by appearances, are all here with one determination, and that is to do the best they can for their state, to see that such legislation as is passed is of value, and to prevent the defeat of the will of the people iu any particular. Never in the history of Idaho has the message of a governor made such a pro found impression on both the members of the legislature, and also upon all who heard it or read it, as did that of Gover nor F. R. Gooding, which was presented to the legislature last Tuesday. Even those who are opposed to the governor's recommendations for tile enactment of remedial legislation, have compliment ed the message as being plain, manifest ly, sincere .and filled with a fine dig nity. The leading men of the city of all political parties have expressed their appreciation of it iu the highest terms, aud it is constantly alluded to as-oue of the strongest documeuts of the kind ever seut to the legislature of an American state. The recommendations for new laws which are made in the message are al ready in the way of being enacted. Re presentative Balieutyne has introduced a bill providing (or the creation of a railroad commission, his bill beiug very similar to the law at present iu force iu Wisconsin. It provides for a commis siou of three members, appointed by the governor, each member to bold of fice for six years, to be appointed will hold office for two, four aud six years, so that a term will expire every two years. It is expected that a bill similar iu character will be The first commission introduced in the senate. Early action is expected on the measure, reported statements of From the nein tiers, it is appareul that a good majority of tiie house members are iu favor of the bill. As to the position of the members of tiie state senate but little is kuowu. Several of the very strong members of that body are avowed advocates of the regulation commission charges. An anti-pass bill, anti-trust bill, eight hour day for miners law, local opi ion bill, timber protection law, election law aud anti lobby bill besides of railroad primary a number of other important measures have been introduced in tiie bouse and are now beiug printed. These aye all Jaws promised Ihe people in the repub lican state platform atid the republican members of the legislature have ex pressed the intention of seeiug that every sue , promise is materialized iuio a law at the earliest possible morneut. The question of county division will come up for cousideration at once. It is now known that two division bills will be up, providing for thecreatiou of Carey couutv, with county seat at Twin Falls, the uew county being lakeu from Cassia county, and of Bouuer county, with county seat at Saud Point, out ot Kootei ai county. The creatiou ot these counties is not beiug opposed by anyone, both parties having eudoi eed the division scheme, aud agreed upon identical division liues. There has been some talk about olhe> county division schemes coming before the legislature. Latterly, however, all Ibis has died dowu, and it is not now thought here that liiw proposals to divide Fremont, B ugh am or Nez Perce counties will even proceed so far as to see tue introduction of bills for ihat purpose. Whai Should be Done for Silver. YVhei the proposition was before Cougress to establish a currency for Ihe Philippines the hub-cotmnittee of the Senate called in Senators Teller . and Aldrich to help formulate some thing that would accomplish what was I needed. They had tried to degrade it? | But, more especially, why should the manufacturers a d exporting mer chants of our country be kept in per petual anxiety over a business proposi tion which could be settled iu five min utes by Congress? As it is, when an Americau merchant buys and seuds a cargo of merchandise to Cbiua or South America he does not know whetiier he is going to get his pay in 80-cent dollars or in dollars worth $ 1 . 10 . Two years ago J. J. Hill, of the Great Northern and Northern Pacific rail roads, put on two immense steamships to run iu the China aud Seattle trade. Iu one of his speeches about that time tie said if China would buy Hour to the amouut of $5 per capita for iter people it would bring to the Uuited Slates 82.000. 000.000 per annum. He tried it, but found that Chiua bad not the live dollars. She would be glad to purchase 100.000. 000 ounces of silver per annum aud pay for it through her merchandise aud customs. She wants to develop her wonderful but slumbering resources, but she cannot for want of mouey. Indeed, bad all the silver taken from all our mines since the discoveiy of the Comstock forty-eight years ago been shipped to Chiua, it would not have giveu her people 86 per capita. We have over $33 per ca| it i in one aud an other form of money a id yet we are told that both New York aud London are worried over tiie drain of gold that lias come upon them. The Bank of England has just borrowed 82,5UO,t)UO from the Bank of Fiauce '"to tide Lou don over Jauuary," aud the Bauk of Euglaud has doub-ed her usual discouut rate. We believe that the aunuai demand of Europe aud the United States for the arts aud for subsidiary coinage, and the amouut needed by Great Britaiu for india and the Straits settlements, is more than is taken from all the mines of the Uuited States and Mexico. Then why not consider the question from a business standpoint? Whv should not Congress pass a law to the effect that while maintaining the gold standard, the Government will at the same lime, to place the business of our export merchants aud manufactu rers dealing with silver countries on a stable basis, receive silver iu exchange from such countries at the rate of On eouts (or 81.00) per ounce, aud sell sil ver to such countries at the same rate. That would fix thé price of silver the world uround as fast as the cable coold carry it. If any congressman doubts that, let the bill be made to take effect 60 days after its passage. It would not only place silver ou a stable basis but would be a uiigluy re lief to the bonking centers, f r it would stop the flow of gold to Spanish Antéri eur, to Egypt and to Japan. Finally it would he a great thing for our trade with South America and the Orient. Is it not worth trying for?— Goodwin's Weekly. The Interna.tiona.1 Santa, Claus. The Uuited States is plainly the San ta Claus of the nation. It is not an ex cessive estimate to say that "this Christ mas" she has distributed abroad iu actual cash not less than 810,000,000. During one week recently outgoing steamships carried in money orders alone over $1,800,0110. Front a senti mental point of view this is is a pleas ant attitude to find one's country in— helping the poverty-stricken anil down trodden peasantry of Europe from its superabundant store of good things.
