If you are not consuming the time of others it may be true; but If by your position or connection with others, you require them to waste tlielr timeiu waiting on your sweet pleasure, then you are commiting a violation of the rights of others, and of good broediug.

First Lieutenant, Samuel Pearce; Second Lieutenant, John Smith; Adjutant, P. J. Quinlin; Quartermaster, F. <'. Cornell; Officer of the day, Itobt. Sanford. The garrison starts out with a large membership which will no doubt largely increase before spring. The object of the order is to foster reverauee and loyalty to the flag of our country, for social and benevolent pur poses and for the protection aud wcl fair f its members. On Tuesday evening last the Social club gave another of their delightful hops.

Secretary Finch Talks. Secretary Finch of the Mine Owners' association, w Idle speaking of the meet ing held last night, said to-day: "Yes, we discussed nearly all the sub jects in which we are interested as miuiug men. We did not arrive at any | conclusion. Of course we are at some expense while the mines are idle, but tlieu wc are not exhausting them. The mineral is there aud we can take it out when satisfactory arrangements can be made. There is no truth in the story that there is great suffering in tlie Clear d'Alenes. The fact is that three fourths of the miners have left the country, and the married men are doing development work. Those who are not working are living in their huts. Some of our old men are in Butte; they are scattered. When the men are working 25 per cent of them change places every mouth. If the men should offer to modify their rules and work ur less pay, which we do not ask, there would then be the railroad problem to solve, but there is no more chance of their do ing that than there is of each of them offering us a thousand dollars.

Wells In Chicago. Hon. Janies M. Wells. wo:l is fair com missioner for this state, is now in the Windy City conferring with the man agers of the big fair. Before leaving B >ise he said to a statesman reporter: I wish to know how much space this great state will be allowed for its build ings aud for other purposes, and how it will be situated in regard to other build ings. I intend to secure for Idaho all she is entitled to. aud a little more if pos sible. 1 shall return in about two weeks, and shall make mv headquarters in my office in the Souna block, while my s"c lvtar >'' Mr - <'aaey, wiU visit every por tion of tbe state." The people of Idaho may expect Commissioner Wells to ac eomplish the object of bis mission, as it is only in keeping with his well known re P'3tation as an untiring worker. To use a slang phrase "he is in it" aud it will lie no fault of his if Idaho does not make a good exhibit at Chicago next year. Hr. Stone Not Guilty. The great Stone case that has been on trial at Boise for tbe last three weeks was given to the jury last Saturday, who after only a few minutes delibero tion returned a verdict of not guilty, So much has already been said about this case that it hardly seems necessary to add that stone was on trial for cut ting timber on Government land in the 1* mn ZL'Z * 1 <rt m jnl s W1 ri ' m * starts tin nurtlieni jiart of this Beaty was In entire verdict of the jury. In discharging Mr. stone he complimented him on his complete vindiction. The prosecution was very able, and it seems that Mr. Wood and his assistant Mr. Wilson, did all that could lie done to convict the defendant and we believe that they did it with the idea that Stone was guilty. All must give the officers credit with acting in good faith. This trial has been watched with great interest for on its results depended the weal or woe, of timber cutt< rs. The Spokane Smelter. Attorney Samuel R. Stern, of Spo kane, is in the east looking after the smelter interests. lie will see Col. Iii gersoll, during bis absence, and try to complete arrangements for starting tlie smelter.'There is one thing certain, Spo kane must vem be in position to smelt the ores of the country tributary to her or loose her grip as a center of tlie min ing interests. It will only U-a few fires in bis i'uget sound smelters and if tlie ore market is once established there, spokune will not be able to turn the tide. While her people are congrat iiluting themselves and rejoicing over securing tlie Great Northern they must not let the smelter matter, which is of almost as uiurli importance, drop with al1 effort to put it in opera tion, We are leaders aud originators of low prices.
