OWYHEE NUGGET ¥, to in as All the Local Mining News Accur ately Chronicled. Subscription. Rates. ,. $3.00 .. 1.50 ONE YEAR. SIX MONTHS. THREE MONTHS No. 26 Telephone PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY John Lamb 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. to FRIDAY, MARCH 29,1907. Wildcat" Law, a copy of which is printed elsewhere in this number ought to make some of the promoters of mining schemes in this state a little more cautious about statements they publish in their prospectuses. The it The attention of Nugget has been called to an advertisement of a mining company in the Minneapo lis Tribune containing representa tives which should elicit a fraud order from the postoffice depart ment. The brokers are advertising several hundred acres, nine miles from Boise, in the vicinity of the great Trade Dollar and DeLamar mines, claiming 150 veins of gold ore, running from $6 to $500 per ton. and a lot more of such improb able statements. The conditions existing in the city govern yient of San Francisco are being proven even more rot ten than they were found to be in St. Louis three or four years ago, with the addition that the grafters have had a mayor to stand in with them and instead of having a political boss like Ed Butler to put up the jobs for the grafters to work, the mayor has had a city attorney capable of working all the aldermen, keep ing the larger share of the spoils himself. What a beggarly lot of rascals nearly all of them have been! But San Francisco has found a Heyuey, as St. Louis found a Folk, and there is a shak ing up going on now- down by the Golden Gate disturbing the rascals more than last year's earthquake seems to have done. Judge Wood, with the consent of the attorneys for the defense, has granted a change of venue in the trial of the Moyer-Heywood-Petti hone cares from Canyon to Ada county, and thus satisfactorily dis poses of the contention that the ac cused men could not get a fair trial in the county where former Cover Steunenberg resided and was nor assassinated. However much we may consider the honesty and fair mindedness of the average citizens of Canyon county beyond question we must still concede that Judge Wood was right in granting the ( The subject has change of venue, been so much discussed wherever a of men have come together group in any part of the county that it is quite impossible that any citizen j with sufficient intelligence to sit as a juryman on a trial of such mo mentuous importance has not be come biased for or against the ac cused men however fair he may think himself capable of doing ex act justice. The county has been overrun with agitators almost continuously since the accused men were arrested and literature intended to have a bearing on the trials has been sent to every home, moHt of it, it is true, in the interest of the accused. For this reason the prosecution, as well as the defense, should be gratified with the change. When the trial will now come off With such remains a question, able lawyers employed for the de fense, if they find it to their interest to have a speedy trial, the case may come up soon, or if there be any reasons why they may wish to have it delayed, they will be able to find legal causes for its postponement. But it is the expressed wish of both the prosecution and the friends of the defendants that the trial may be had with as little delay as prac ticable. It is the most important case that ever came before an Ida ho court, and all that the people demand is that it shall be fairly tried and a just verdict rendered. "Bonds" For Matrimony. How manners and customs change in a generation! In talk ing with Congressman Green the other day, he recalled the fact that his mother and father were married in Massachusetts and his father was required to give a bond of $125 before the ceremony could be performed. If this re quirement were enforced at the present time, and every young man who desired to enter the blessed state of matrimony had to prove that he was possessed of $125 spare cash, it is to be feared that many of our young people would have little left to purchase a housekeeping equip ment. In those old days they regarded marriage as something more than a pastime, and enter ed upon it as a real and serious responsibility.—National Maga zine. New Duties for Commissioners. The new law relative to county commissioners requires their per sonal visitation and inspection of the public roads in their sever a l districts, gives them authority and control over district road overseers, and provides for the holding of special meetings for the consideration of road ques tions, and provides penalties for failure on the part of the com missioners to perform their du ties as specified. The commissioners shall meet in special session on the second Monday of May and September J - 1 for the consideration of questions pertaining to their new duties. Each member of the board must ( submit a report of the condition of the roads in his district; the work needed thereon and an esti a mate of the cost to he incurred, Any county commissioner who is j shall wilfully or negligently fail to perform any of the duties de scribed in the bill will be subject ed to a fine of not less than $50 nor more than $200, to be re covered upon his official bond by action brought by the prosecu ting attorney of the county wherein the delinquent commis sioner resides. Opening of the North Side of Twin Falls Tract, April 22 has been set as the day for opening for entry the first 30,000 acres of the north side of Twin Falls tract, and the sale of town lots at Milner, where the great dam is located. This en terprise intended to reclaim 180, 000 acres of land on the north side of the river, is virtually un der the same management as was that on the south side, where the water was turned into the canals two years ago, and if it be as great a success for both the company and for the locators as was the former opening, all the parties ought to be satisfied. Indeed there are many reasons for believing that it will even be a greater success. The manage ment has an experience gained at the former opening; it has even some more desirable lauds than the south side, because of their southern exposure. But they are segregated by a number of ridges and low buttes, which added greatly to the engineering diffi culties of constructing canals so as to cover all of the more desir able lands. This problem has, however, at length been solved and the construction work will shortly be begun. It will not require a great length of time to get water on the 30,000 acres to be opened next month, they being the east end, next to Milner, where the water is to be taken from the great dam already constructed. There are several reservoir sites between this and the lower por tions of the tract where water can be stored to provide for any shortage in supply. The company will at once be gin the construction of an electric railway to extend from Milner to Gooding, to be near the line of the proposed canal, enable the contractors to get their supplies for construction to points required, and he of great convenience to locators. We may look for a rush of set tlers to this tract quite equal to that which within the past three years lias transformed the great sagebrush desert on the south side of the river into a region of prosperous homes. a This will for JETvi. >/ " »A polntmem» at i : crry Seeds nre not an experi ment, but with proper culti^ re success ; ; Users Lave no nor disap t.
