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

Falls North Side Laud & Investment
company, is in the city from Sharon,

Chicago, vice president ; A. C. Milner

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

Lis first substantial investment in Carey

revival of interest in the west. Through
the active work of Mr. Buhl aud ober
stockholders 10,000 homes havb been

four years ago there was nothing but
oceans of sage brush.

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.
