about # o'clock, a, to. with about one

passage on the steamer Georgie (takes
and enjoyed a Tery pleasant trip on the
lake and up the river to the Mission.
They returned to this city in the even
ing and accepted an invitation of Gen.
Carlin to visit Fort Sherman and wit
ness dress parade. They also enjoyed
several fine selections of music by the
famous Fourth Infantry hand, after
which they returned to the city and
boarded the train for home. It was i
moat enjoyable day tor the excursion

The yacht race last Sunday for Uie
silver cup and emblem, between the
yachts Argo, Idaho and Mountain
Queen, was won by Uie latter. The race
was sailed over a three and a half mile
course. The Argo rounded the stake
boat some lengths ahead of her com
petitors and beta were freely offered on
her wiUi no taker*. The Mountain Queen
a few minutes after, rouuded Uie stake
boat, went off on Uie port tack holding
her wind in line style for about a mile,
giving her a free shoot on the starboard
tack for the home stake. The Argo
and Idaho kept off on the starboard
tack, after rounding the stake boat, for
about a mile which necessitated them
making two extra tacks, and gave the
Mountain Queen the first prixe, the
Argo, second prixe; and Uie Idaho
clear water to sail in. a good breexe, and
the moat picturesque aceuery in the
world, to admire.

or three hundred non union men in

The X. P. officials asked Governor
Willey to protect their property and
prevent further Interference. In re
sponse to their request the Governor
came up to make a personal examina
tion of the situation. What the results
of his visit will be we are unable to say
for the Governor was non-commits!.
It is much to the credit of the union
that they have exerted every effort to
keep peace, and it seem* that the own
ers have taken only such steps aa were
necessary to protect their property.
The Bunker Hill Co, went to all their
old men that were In town and asked
them to come back to work, but ao far
we believe that all refused, although
most of them would gladly resume
work if it were not for the union.
The Times Building Badly Damaged
Fire was discovered in the old Times
building, about It JO, Tuesday evening.
The fire company were on the ground
in an incredibly shot time and although
the fire was under way the company
soon had it under control. The fire
seemed to have originated near the
stove, but it had spread so far and was
so thoroughly through the building
when discovered that it is hard to tell
where it started. The building is badly
damaged, but not dtatroyed. The roof
and ceiling being almost totally de
stroyed, while the sides of the building
are damaged but little.
The fire boys did great work and de
served the many compliments they
received. There wss also an excellent
pressure on the water, which combined
with prompt action made the result of
their labors a success and saved a great
deal of property.
*The steamer Georgie Oakes, after re

G on rags College, of Spokane, gave
their annual picnic excunion to C<rur
d'Alene, last Wednesday. There were
eighty scholars accompanied by their
parents and a number of invited
friends. Rev. Father T. B. Rene and
Father Smith, so well known through
out Idaho, were In charge. The band
comprising sixteen memberi of the
college, under the leaderxhlp of Rev
Father Arthuis, discoursed the sweet
est music as they floated away majes
tically on the placid waters of lake
Coeur d'Alene. The steamer Georgie
Oakes presented a gay appearance as
she steamed out of port with her load
of happy, joyous hearts and smiling
faces. All gave themselves up to the
pleasures of the occasion and many
wore Uie expressions of delight as the
beauUful panorama of mountain scen
ery unfolded before their enraptured
vision. A picture once seen never to
be forgotten. Arriving at East I*oinL
the place selected for the picnic, they
proceeded to enjoy themselves in the
most approved style. AH kinds of
games were played. Too much cannot
be said in praise of the performances
of the hand, Uie majority of the mem
bers being under fifteen years of age,
and only having four monUis practice.
The excursion was a grand success in
every particular, and Uie participants
will long remember the happy hours
they spent on beauUful lake Creur d'
Alene; hours that passed all too quick
ly for the litt'e folks.

Again we will call the attention of
oar farmer friends to a few solid facta.
In a former issue of the Pages we
made mention of the fact that Cceur
d'Alene was paying too much tribute
to other state* for vegetables, butter,
eggs, meat, and fruit of all kinds. The
following is a statement of facte, which
our merctiantc hare kindly furnished
us and were taken from their shipping
ISflOO to Potatoes. UJGOO to Onions.
12.400 " Beets. 0,400 " Carrots.
12,600 " Parsnips. K,»0 " Cabbage.
4&fl00 " Bacon. GO,too " Ham.
40,4(0 " Halt meaL 22^00 " Butter.
60.400 " Apples.
3,000 doi. Radishes 75JW0 dot. Eggs.
This Is a very conservative estimate
of the amount of produce that is ship
ped into Curnr d'Alene in one year, as
we have not interviewed any of the ho
tel* or restaurants, each one of which
ship to this place great quantities of the
above commodities. It does not require
an expert mathematition to calculate
the amount of money it requires to pay
for these products and their transporta
tion. It doe* not require the mind
of a McKinley to see at a glance that
we are paying too much tribute to other
states, that they are sapping the very
life out of us and taking all the surplus
money out of the place. There is noth
ing in Uie shape of the above articles
that is exported from this place. The
great boast of farmers in this country
always has been, that the soil would
produce anything in the greatest pro
fusion that was put into it, and yet you
do not raise enough to supply this mar
keL In fact there are some of you **»»>
do not raise enough for your home con
sumption, for we have seen farmers
buying eggs, butter, cabbage, h«m j on
ions, bacon, etc, farmers too who
started in eight or nine yean ago.
Don't it seem queer that the fanners
in Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois «n*
other states, a thousand miles or more
from here can raise these articles and
ship them that distance by rail, paying
enormous freight charges, and the per
centage of several middle men and
make a profit. Don't it look odd to
see crate after crate of cabbage and
eggs and tons of vegetables coming from
California, Oregon and western Wash
ington. And mind you, farmers, these
vegetables were all grown last year,
kept over winter, shipped here to sup
ply the market that should be yours.
Farmers, you have the best market in
the country. The very fact of these
distant states competing for this trade
by sending agent* to the mines and
Spokane is proof positive. Farmers
you can have the whole thing in your
own hands if you wiU get in and drill,
get a move on you or you will be badly
left. You have everything in your
favor, soil, climate and the close prox
imity to markeL You cant raise too
much grain; you can't raise too many
vegetables; you cant raise too many
chickens and eggs; you cant make too
much butter. The increasing market
will absorb everything you can raise
and you wiU get a good price for iL
A Farrow Escape.
A shooting affair took place about
5 o'clock Tuesday morning, in the Spo
kane Resort, in which John Turner and
Morphine Charley were the interested
parties. It seem* that they had been
imbibing rather freely in the evening,
and at this time in the morning their
bends were a Httie soar, and consequent
ly they were not in the best of humor.
Morphine Charley became Tery abusive
and finally struck Turner, who is over
sixty years old and he made such resis
tance as he could, but waa unable to
protect himself so he received a severe
pounding. When Charley desisted and
allowed Turner to get up Turner swore
vengance on him and said that he
would kill him. and started to get a gun
for that purpose. He returned in a
short time •rm«l with a winchester.'
