On the Honor Roll of the University of Idaho for last year, underClass A Honors, appears the name of Miss Mattie Heer, of this place. This is the second time that Miss Heer'8 name,has appeared upon this roll, and this community may feel proud that it has a representativeupon this list, as it stands for what is highest and best in scholarship at that institution. *The Honor Roll system was begun three years ago as an inducement to higher scholar ship. The Roll is composed of two classes—Class A and Class B. At the end of each college year the average of each student's grades is taken and, if his aver age permits of it, he is assigned to either of the classes, as his grades warrant. THE ELECTION The last week's election in Owyhee County was a most remarkable one. While the result was disappointing to some, there is some satisfaction in know-. ing that those elected were men of which the respective parties should be proud and of whom the people are proud. Mr. Hawley's heavy vote over Governor Brady in the southeast was a most sur prising outcome of the campaign. Locally the people are to be congratu lated upon electing a most excellent staff of officers. Clean, clear-cut men of both parties will control the destiny of the county for the next two years, men who are morally and mentally fit to cope with the conditions. All-prejudice and party dislike should be put aside and every en couragement given to the new officials in the transaction of the county business. Intelligent co-operation should give place to ignorant and vicions kicking. The taxpayers should not be allowed to in fringe on rights belonging to the of ficials. The men who will represent the county are worthy of the honor given them, and should give Owyhee County a place in all legislative enactments. The commissioners elected are all good, honest, business men, with common sense, and should, unless hampered, give the county a splendid administration 4 The balance of the officers elected are thoroughly reliable in every way, and can be counted upon to do their best to protect the interest of the county. TEACHERS EXAMINATION There will be an examination for teachers Nov. 21st and 22nd. Questions will be issued for second and third grade certificates. Jennie Farrer Avery, Supt. of Public Instruction Silver City, Nov. 6th, 1910. WILSON A trial was held here in the Justice Court on the 10th of November before James Prior, which aroused great interest in this neighborhood. Suit was brought by W. H. Bosz vs. H. B Ward to collect one hundred ninety-seven dollars and eighty-two cents, with interest, balance due for drilling a well. Plaintiff was represented by H. S. Kessler, an attyrney of Boise, and Mr. Ward, the defendant, by Mr. Stone, of Caldwell. Defendant called for a jury; the trial proceeded and was contested bitterly. The jury returned a verdict for plaintiff for the full amount claimed. The Nugget shop, being well equipped witti a good line of display type of differ ent kinds, is now more capable than ever to take care of your job work. Bi$ Fight for the Exposition The matter of the selection of a site for a world's exposition to celebrate the com pletion of the Panama Canal will come before Congress for decision next month and the two rival claimants for the. honor have for months past been marshalling their forces for the final struggle. Both are confident of winning the coveted en dorsement and both will have representa tives on the ground to present their re spective claims before the committees of the Senate and House. On the one hand is San Francisco, the hustling metropolis of the Pacific coast, the city which stands to profit more through the completion of the canal than almost any other city in the United States. On the other hand is New Orleans, the Louisiana metropolis, located on the Mississippi, sixty miles from the gulf of Mexico, which will add nothing to its ex port trade through the opening of the canal and which will derive no direct ben efit from it. Ninety per cent of fhe exports from N®w Orleans go to New Yoek or Europe, and they will continue to go that way aft/ the canal is opened to the commerce of the world. Ships from the Atlantic sea board and from European ports, with car goes for the Pacific coast or the Orient will not approach New Orleans on their way through the canal, either going or coming. The great majority of them will touch San Francisco, and in the case of many ot the larger ships, San Francisco will undoubtedly be made a regular port of call. The Panama canal was designed pri marily to promote trade between the At lantic coast and European ports with the Pacific coast and with the Orient, by pro viding a shorter and cheaper route. F rom a commercial point of view New Orleans' interest in the canal, compared with that of San Francisco, is nil.

Work at the Banner is progressing sat isfactorily in both the upper and lower workings. A larger force of men has been put to work on the lower tunnel, which is being driven into the mountain with increased rapidity. In the upper workings the ore is being blocked out. By spring enough will have been.taken out to run the mill on for a considerable length of time. By that time it is hoped the ore shoot will be tap ped in the lower tunnel; this will mean a steady run of the mill. Each day, each foot nearer the goal the tuunnel is driven, the interest, the excite ment of the management and stockhold ers becomes more intense. And not only is the interest manifested by the manage ment alone, but also by the people of this community, who hope that when spring comes the Banner will be paying divi dends. Knocker and Booster If there were ever two words made use of as stalking horses for the"false alarm" class they are given in caption. They occasionally may be used to ex press some thing, but they are more often brought into play to promote theinterests of those who never participated in a public move ment in their lives unless there was "something in it" for them. If there be an honest expression of opinion for the good of all, in the behalf of the individual, whether right or wrong there are those who set him down as a "knocker" and who arrogate to their silly, narrow minded'selves all the virtues of "boosterism". While there are undoubtedly excep tions to the rule, it is generally true that the man who ostentatiously parades himself as a "booster" is about as value less an asset as any community can pos sess. Energetic application for the public good is "boosting," of course but the act itself furnishes a sufficient proclamation. A man may be mistaken without being a "knocker" in the sense in which the term is used nowadays. And he may be called a "knocker" by superficial people, possibly disappointed in their own nest feathering plans while yet being right and the best friend of the community.— Statesman. BIG STRIKE.
