The committee on resolutions reported the following, which was adopted: We, the Republicans of Idaho, in State convention assembled, hereby adopt and declare the fol lowing principles : We are in favor of the free j and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. We declare our firm belief in the doctrine of protection to American industry, American labor and laborers and recognize this as the foundation and car dinal principles of the Republi can party. Free wool, now ad vocated by the Democratic party, would substantially destroy Am erican sheep husbandry, deprive the farmer of the markets it af fords for pasturage, hay and grain, and require the purchase of wool from foreign countries and thereby turn many out of employment. We demand such protection for sheep husbandry as will secure fair prices for wool and mutton needed for con sumption in the United States. We also denounce especially the persistent unfriendly legislation to our lead, fruit, flax and timber industries. The Republican party of Idaho declares itself in favor of uphold ing and maintaining the law and punishing all violations of it un der whatsoever pretense such violation may be committed, and we recognize no right as existing in any man or body of men to violate or evade its provisions, directly or indirectly. We pledge the party and those whom it shall elect to public office to maintain and defend personal property rights to the full extent guaran teed by the law. We favor submission of an equal suffrage amendment to the constitution, to a vote of the people, by the next legislature. We approve and fully endorse all the actions of the Idaho dele gation in congress in their noble fight for free silver and the de feat of that monstrosity, the so called Wilson bill, as well as their unswerving fidelity and earnest labor for the maintenance of Republicanism, and their able and valiant work for the State of Idaho. We point with pride and satis faction to the administration of the affairs of the State by the present officials, and hereby ex press our fullest satisfaction and endorsement thereof, JOHN J. CHAMBERS. The nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Idaho on the Popu list ticket, Dr. John J. Chamb ers, was born in Carrol county, Ohio, in 1859. He is the son of J. H. Chambers, who was a pros perous farmer and a prominent Quaker of Eastern Ohio. His son, John, was taught from in fancy the economical and indus trious habits of that peculiar sect, At the age of 15 years he went to West Chester, Pa., where he attended Normal school; paying all his expenses by janitor work and working in a knitting factory on Saturdays and odd moments. He taught school in Ohio, Indiana and Iowa. Finding this a slow way to earn money to complete his medical education, he went to New Mexico where he worked on the railroad, as fireman. Later he embarked in the sheep business in Arizona, where he saved money sufficient to com plete his education. He gradua ted from the College of Physici ans & Surgeons, Baltimore, Md., March 4, 1884. He practiced his profession in Anthony, Kansas, and North Yakima, Washington. He was elected to the office of councilman in Anthony, Kansas, and was also elected councilman in North Yakima, Washington. He was also a candidate for mayor upon the first ticket the Knights of Labor ever put in the field in the last named city. He spent one year in Astoria, Oregon, on account of his family's health before coming to Idaho. He is at present the only physician in Custer county; and has charge of the county hospital, and is highly esteemed by the citizens of his county. j by the citizens of his county. "The Colonel Hr« Left U». H The following extracts are from the Boise Statesman, which shows that Col. N. J. Sharp has gone back to the g. o. p., and is once more a full-fledged Republi can. "In reference to severance of his connection with the Populist party, Colonel Sharp gives some very interesting and most satis factory reasons for his course. In the first place, he never did endorse the Omaha platform in its entirety. He never did join any Populist club, but acted with the party two years ago because he, like so many others, thought it might be of some benefit to the silver cause. Careful investiga tion of all the principles and tendencies of the party has satis fied him that he should no long er give it any support. Moreover, the Colonel said Custer county elected a Populist administration pledged to re form. There had been no re form but, on the contrary, dis tinct retrogression in the manage ment of county affairs. These are some of the reasons why Colonel Sharp will give his earnest support to the Republi can party." Here is another item taken from the Statesman : "Colonel N. J. Sharp, of Chal lis, who is in the city, thinks Custer county Will go Republi can this year, He himself was was a howling Pop. for some time, but he says he has got enough of it and will henceforth be found in the Republican ranks. He says a large number of other Custer county voters, who joined the Populists two years ago, will vote the Republi can ticket this year," The above are the Mr. Sharp's individual opinions, Here's something else we find in another issue of the same paper in regard to the late Re publican State convention : "Lemhi county—Thomas Pay ett, E. S. Suydam, Chas. Barc lay, W. F. Stone by N. J. Sharp, proxy; F. J. Cowen." ECHOES FROM LOST RIVER. to the bad state of the railroads, but severrl teams have been sent after coke, so it is only a matter of few days before Cliff will once more be turning out its share of the yellow bullion, The work of re-lining the smel ter and putting the other mach inery in shape has been complet ed, so that everything is in readiness to start—the only drawback being the freight which is very slow in coming in, owing Inventory is being taken of the stock of J. H. Green's store, and it is reported that the Com - pany has purchased the same. Mrs. Heins has opened a res taurant at Houston. Everything is first-class, and Mrs. H. deserv es her share of the patronage. Reports have it that Thomas Dees and Joseph Porterfield will soon open a saloon at Houston. Ira Barker, of Custer, was one of the arrivals at Houston last week. The first stage from Blackfoot on the Murray fast freight line arrived at Cliff during the past week. Mrs. Harris and Jolly, are the first ladies to take up their abode in Cliff. Mark Kuhn, the well-known commercial man is at Houston. Frank DelRea and a crew of charcoal burners are down from Bayhorse. L. N. Boukofsky and several other Claytonites are in town. Strange faces and camp-outfits are taking possession of our once quiet little town. Mr. Hull, of Hull & Green, is with us. Dan Dougherty is in Houston. The engine at the sawmill has been thoroughly overhauled by engineer Roberts. Thomas Jose, of Challis, has been doing Cliff on business. Charles Howell, Chub Hender son and John Howell, were up looking over the ore road, and figuring on a contract. —Echo. X Good On« On Sharp. A good story is going the rounds. It is on N. J. Sharp, of Custer county. At a Populist meeting, in Challis recently, he excoriated the Republicans and Democrats, saddling upon them all the ills with which we are afflicted. He concluded by saying : "In this county we are better off, because we are Populists. No man is hungry here. None need go hungry. If any man wants a meal, let him call on Sharp for four-bits to get it." At the close of the meeting Colonel Sharp stepped out on the sidewalk. A bum addressed him thus : "Colonel, I'm very hungry, and would like four-bits." "You d -d fool !" replied the Colonel. "That don't go, any more. It only went while I was on the platform."— Wood River Times. The above would be a nice lit tle joke if it were true, but we do not believe the Col. ever made any such speech in Challis, nor do we believe any "bum" ever "struck him for four-bits;" its only a fake. The Salmon City Recorder says two bids for carrying the mail between this city and Challis were sent in from this office and three from Challis. LOCAL GLEANINGS -*• The baby kicks Its dimpled feet.

While the war between China and Japan has been raging hot across the waters, and the Chin ese have been getting the worst of the bargain, the Celestials of Challis have fared better. They have had for their bill of fare roast chicken, chicken in all forms, stolen from the poultry yard of William Bradbury—45 in number. on a Terms From this A fire took place at Joe. Hor ton's ranch down on Salmon riv er, about 8 miles from Challis, last Saturday afternoon, com pletely destroying Mr. Horton's blacksmith shop, tool house, and the tools and implements therein. The fire originated from the blacksmith shop, and the loss is quite heavy. No insurance. The Boise Democrat has this to say of our old friend, A. C. Bo mar, who is visiting in Boise: "Ä1. is a popular and influen tal citizen of Custer county and has been honored more than once by election to responsible positions. His old friends will be pleased to learn that he has recovered from the misfortune of a fire in which he lost seven or eight thousand dollars and is again doing well." A daily mail route has been es tablished over the State wagon road between Salmon City and Challis. A twice-a-week-service has been put on between Mead ows and Grangeville, on the strength of the wagon road pro ject, and a daily service is prom ised there when the road shall have been completed, fore Challis and Salmon City have been connected only by a mountain trail and there was very little intercourse between them, while such a thing as free communication between North and South Idaho has been so im practicable that a great many people thought it was impossible. Now, whenever the wagon road is completed, a daily stage route is promised there. These stage routes over these roads will lead to the rapid development of the country and the wagon road en terprise will be abundantly justi fied. Indeed, the Deadwood dis trict has already become a scene of much activity because of the road, and it is more than prob able that a stage line connecting it with Boise will be demanded by another season. It pays to build roads.— Boise Statesman, The Statesman is evidently mis informed in regard to a daily ser vice between Challis and Salmon City. Such a service was asked; for, but we were granted a twice-a week-service. We expect, how ever, that a daily line will be es tablished in the near future be tween these ] joints, as the in creasing traffic will demand it 1 Hereto \
