Charge Dismissed With a Story.
Down at DeLamar, last Saturday, a complaint was made out before a justice of the peace, charging a miner named Wiley with having taken a shot at a miner named Shovel. Wiley was ar rested and the prosecuting attorney telephoned for to go down and conduct a hearing before the J. P. Mr. Hays went down, but the hour heing late, the hearing was postponed until Monday, and Mr. Wilev locked up. When Mon day morning came, it was fouud that the complaining witness and also "the woman in the case' 1 had skipped the bailiwick. Mr. Hays, on being inform ed of this, ordered the J. P. to release the defendant. Defendant was called into court and the J, P. addressed him as follows: '•I want to tell you a story. 0''oe upon a time a colored man died. He went to heaven and knocked at the gate and St. Peter opened it and asked him where he came from. The man re plied : 'From DeLamar.' St. Peter took him in and, with a lot of the other mor ning arrivals, began to show him arouud. First he pointed out a bauch of Baptists, then Methodists, Catholics, Episcopalians, Christian Scientists, and so on, through a long list of religious beliefs, telling bis followers to drop out aud mix in with any compauy that suited them, until he fouud only the negro left, when St. Peter asked him il he didn't belong to any of these, and the coon replied: 'No, boss, Peter.' Then St. Peter said: 'Go wherever you blame piease.' That's what I tell you' to do.- You are discharged." 'lhis, we have been assured, is what actually took place in that justice court. Founder of Ten Thousand Hornes F. H. Buhl, president of the Twin Falls North Side Laud & Investment company, is in the city from Sharon, Pa., in company with a number of di rectors aud officers aud others, promi nent among whom are G. A. Baird of Chicago, vice president ; A. C. Milner of Salt Lake ; F. A. Voaigt of Twin Falls, secretary, ai d R. H. MeCuUum of Twin Falls. D. C. MacWatters, the engineer in charge of the work on the canal, is expected in the city to join the party aud go over the project. Mr. Buhl, the eastern capitalist who is interested in tiie Twin Falls project, has the honor of beiug the douor of the first building for public education in the state, he having made provisions for the con struction of a $20,000 school house at Buhl. Besides making a gift of this buiidiug, which is in course of construc tion, he also furnished the site and ha» arrangements made for laying walks about the buiidiug. Mr. Bubi made Lis first substantial investment in Carey act lauds iu Idaho four years ago aud lie has been laigeiv responsible lor the revival of interest in the west. Through the active work of Mr. Buhl aud ober stockholders 10,000 homes havb been nuilt oo the Twiu Falls Tract.wbere four years ago there was nothing but oceans of sage brush. The tovvu of Buhl is growing rapidly aud today, fur the first time, boasts of two traius ou the branch liue from Miuidoka.—Capital News. Minnesota Has A Governor. Governor Johnsou of Mmuesotu is Col, VVattersou's dark horse for Presi deut. Bui.Goveruor Johusun will uever suit Mr. Bryan. See what he did the other day. A great strike was ordered in the Minuesota iron region, where upon this governor issued a proclama tion, warning all concerned Unit tiie peace aud order of Miunesolu must not bedisturoed; he told Lite sti taels that it, was tlieir right to meet in peaceable assemblages ; that iu this he would pro tect them, but they must avoid march ing iu large bodies uear the mines ; aud icuouuce every form of physical intim idation aud force. Such a man as tUat will uot do for a c lUdidate on the Dum oeratie ticket. Where would be the ap peals to have the wrongs of poor work ing men redressed? It seems the outside people in Minne sota are just as bad as the Governor. They gathered together in the mining region in tire town of Ely,in mass meet ing, denounced the strike, condemned the violence of the labor bodies and guaranteed protection to every man who wanted lowork. Then the business men went to one Luudstrom, a strike organizer, and escorted him to an ont going train and sent him away. In several other towns similar proceedings were carried out and the impressiou it all gives is that the sentiment of the men of Minnesota is, the h..vs must be sustained and the rights of every mau to do the best he can for himself within the law is a cardinal principle up there. And this must be the rule everywhere and if the unions would accept this they would have the sympathy and good will of every man and woman in Amer ica.—Goodwin's Weekly. A Symbol of Peace. Away down almost to the northern bouudary of Potagonia. in the Uspallata Pass in the Great Andes Range, 13,000 fret above the sea, the Governments of Chili and Argentina have erected a col ossal statue of the Christ, to stand as a symbol of everlasting peace bet ween the two Republics. To most men that spot is practically out of the world ; most men know little of either country, the great majority of men hold neither as representing a very high order of en lightenment; but we have a suspicion that in the roll of the years that statue will count more for peace than all the work of the present Peace Congress, at least more than all its work unless il frames and passes tue arbitration code uow under its consideration. In a few months more daily trains between San tiago and Buenos Ayres will be passing that statue. Passengers looking from th- coach windows will see il and be reminded of what it signifie- and, going either way will have kindlier thoughts of the couutry they are entering. It will grow more sacred as time goes on. In a few years they will be Baying to each other: "Our fathers lifted up that statue. The two couulries had long been antagonistic; there was uo end of bad blood between them, but they finally got together and settled their differences, and gf. at relief came to both aud they agreed tosj mboithe new good will, and upr. ared this statue as a sign to us that the ways of peace are better than those of war, and that there must be no more bearl-buruiug9 be tween these two nations.'' And the ef fect will continue to grow until without a paper ever beiug signed the two na tions will be in firm . lliauce. And those two countries far away in the southland ; those countries where schoo,-houses are not very plenty, where the great r> at of higher civiliza tion only falls in murmurs, have set the world an example which should be a minister of good to the world's end.— Goodwin's Weekly.
