The preliminary examination
of Newt Morgan for the killing
of X W, McDonald took place in
Gibbonsville on Friday and Sat
urday, and he was held to wait
the action of the grand jury. He
was brought to this city on Sun
day and consigned to the county
jail.— Salmon City Recorder.
Dan Rober came down from
Dixie, Monday and went to Boise
I ft K - taking with him about
30 ourteds of retorted gold, the
result of a clean-up at the Gold
King. Mr. Reber recently pur
chased a Frue vanner and other
machinery at Rocky Bar and is
now having it placed in position
at his mill. Mr. Erickson, of
the Bar, is superintending the
work.— Mt. Home Republican.
Hon. James M. Shoup came
down to Salmon City from his
home on thePansimari last Tues
day and returned Wednesday.
He came down over the new
State Wagon Road, and when
asked about its condition said it
was a good road. That the high
water had damaged it in a few
places, but all told, the damaged
portions would not exceed a mile
in length. These the contractors
are intending to fix, and where
ver the water got above the
grade the line of the road had
been changed so it would all be
above high water. He also in
formed us the road would be
completed in three or four days
so it could bo traveled by wagon
to Pahsimari.— Salmon City Re
Last Saturday forenoon, as the
incoming stage was striking
into the foothills this side of
Snake river, two masked men
suddenly appeared in the road
and ordered a "halt,
driver John Luxton, who was on
the box, promptly handed out
the mail sack and his watch, and
receiving an order to drive
ho lost no timo in complying
with the request. The only pas
senger aboard was Mrs. Mc
Fayden and son, who were net
molested. The robbers dragged
the mail sacks a short distance
'roqiXha-souU, ripped them
open with knives. Luckily there
was no registered mail, and al
though they tore open a large
number of letters it is thought
they secured nothing of value.
It was evidently their intention
to catch the DeLamar Commer
cial Co's, shipment of specie
which is shipped in from Boise
to cash the pay-day checks
the 10th, Luxton drove on until
he met the outgoing stage, with
J. W. Mills,
gave Luxton his "treasure-box"
and kept on. When near the
Reynolds creek summit he dis
covered some men skulking in
rocks, near the road, and he
"whirled" his team and struck
back to the Reynolds i>ostoffiee,
where ho left his registered
mail. Leaving Reynolds again
he made the trip to Nampa with
out incident. It was clearly the
intention of the robbers to take
as driver. Mills
in both stages, but Mills' ' flank
movement spoiled their scheme.

The body of an unknown man,
aged about 36, was found float
ing in Snake river at this point
this afternoon. An inquest was
held, but it was impossible to
identify the deceased. There
was no evidence of violence and
a verdict of accidental drowning
was rendered. From all appear
ances the body had been in water
about 10 days.— Boise Statesman.

What a sham and mockery was
the observance of the Fourth of
July in the Cœur d'Alenes, in
view of the events which were
uppermost in nearly every one's
mind. While that grand declara
tion of human rights was being
read and the eloquent young
orator was recounting the heroic
deeds of patriotism and valor
which gave us a free country,
even then American citizens were
being driven fi'om their homes
and deprived of that inalienable
right to ' 'life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness." Let us
have no more celebrations, let us
not dwell upon our boasted liber
ties until the spirit of 76 is re
vised and every American citizen
in the Cœur d 'A lenes is protect
ed in his rights guaranteed by
the constitution. — Wallace Miner.
Again has the onsweep of time,
the mighty tidal waves of infin
ity, whirled us abreast with the
fact that those patriots who
yearn for office expect us to
bury animosities, smell noses
and kiss and all-hands-around
for the good of the party. How
ever hard you may have got it in
the neck, politically or other
wise; however much you . may
have been injured financially
traduced, you' are expected by
those gentry to forget the past
and get in and whoop'er up for
the sake of harmony and make
the chances more favorable for
their nomination and election.
We must harmonize tho factions.
Wo must have peace, or the im
mortal principles of Jefferson &
Co. will not show up three colors
to tho pan.
Tho Idaho Democrat has been
healing sores, clasping hands
across the bloody chasm, for

Negotiations are reported to
have'been concluded that will
insure the reworking of old plac
ers in Warren's camp that were
heavy producers in the past.
Private advices from there indi
cate that Ex-Governor Willey
has at last made a sale of a large
tract extending up Meadow
creek from near the mouth of
Steamboat to the Hamlet of
Warrens. In all, about 130 acres
of placers are included in this
deal. Ex-Governor Willey is the
owner of a large share of the
ground and the rest was bonded
by him last summer.
The deeds have since been in
èscrow in a bank in Boise where
they were placed in August last,
when it was anticipated the deal
would be consummated so as to
permit of operations beginning
near the close of the last season.
No particulars have yet been
given as to the terms of the sale,
but the price is supposed to have
been about the same as that
agreed upon last season—$2(3,000.
Of individual holdings in the
tract, the largest are probably
those of George Riebold, em
bracing forty-seven acres . and
including, among other claims,
the old Bill George, that paid
richest pan of gravel in the dis
trict was obtained—about $32
worth of gold. Daily clean-ups
of $545 were made on this claim
on a short run after the regular
season was ended, the gravel
being thawed out by fires.
When Mr. Willey first went to
Wari'ens in 1804, he bought an
interest in the old Empire claim,
in the bed of the creek, and from
which he and his partner took
out $80,000 in a few years. They
then sold it for $2,000, thinking
the claim worked out, but the
purchasers recovered $100,000 in
gold from the same ground in
seven years. Interesting stories
are told of other claims involved
in the new purchase.— Lewiston

The rains of this spring have
unearthed upon the ranch of
Neilson Hatch, ten miles above
here, a curiosity which was
brought to this place yesterday
and is now on exhibition. It is
a mammoth petrified skull close
ly resembling in shape that of a
cow or buffalo and differing only
in size. The horn shell is miss
mg, but the peth or inside,
though broken at the points,
measures two feet in length and
are eighteen inches in circum
ference where they join the
The frontal or facial
bone measures fifteen inches in
breadth across the forehead at
base of horns. The lower part
of this enormous head from
down is broken off, but a suffi
cient amount remains to give
the general shape and suggests
something of the stupendous
size of the head and distance be
tween the eyes. Its antiquity is
proven by the perfect state of
petrification as it weighs
much as though it had been
carved from solid rock. If the
proportion of horn proper to the
stub or peth is the same distance
from tip to tip of horns it must
have been seven or eight feet,
for the measurement from point
to point of the broken stubs is
over four feet. The skeleton of
this animal could undoubtedly be
procured, as no attempt has been
made to excavate at this spot
where this skull was found, the
soil having been washed away
from -it by \\ atei flowing down a 1
small gulch. The wisest inhab-j
itnuts of American Falls are un- 1
a ^ le to name the animal which
once carried this immense head.
All are agreed, however, that no !
cow or buffalo ever grew to such
proportions. Now let some
wiseacre step forward and iden-1 *
