The anunal report of Brigadier Gen
eral Huger, commanding the depart

ceiv«-d at Fort Sherman. Its most in
teresting feature is Geueral Carlin's
report of the operations of tlie troops
under his command in the C»eur d'
Alenes during tlie labor riots in that
region. In closing the report the Geu
eral commends the conduct of the
troops in the following words; "I take
great pleasure in reporting for the in
formation of superior authority that
the couduct of the troops under my
command has been in the highest de
gree honorable to them and creditable
to the army. Not an instance of crim
inal or improper conduct toward citi
zens or each other has been committed.
It would be impossible to find any body
of men In nnv class of society wbo
could have conducted themselves with
more propriety than the soldiers of this
large command have done in this region
during and siuce the riots. These re
marks apply equally to all officers and
men of the Fourth. Fourteenth. Twen
ty-second and Twenty-fifth regiments
of infantry, as well as to the troops of
the Idaho National Guard. AVhile
there was no fighting required, the
spirit displayed by all these troops
showed plainly that they were fully

1 often wonder that any intelligent

of that insatiatdy greedy nation, who
by forcing free trade upon Ireland, and
by thus destroying her manufacturing
interests, brought her to the verge of
starvation and forced that iugh spirited
people into insurrection which was put
down with brutal force and cruelty.
The brave young and talented Emmett,
beloved by ail true Irish patriots above

by her unjust cruelty forced him
many other brave men to take up___
