Perhaps after Teddy takes a
few more boxing and wrestling
lessons he'll be ready to tackle
Mark in a rough and tumble
scrap. _
An extraordinary defense is
that put forward by Major Wal
ler, of the Marine Corps, who is
being tried by court-martial for
having Filipinos shot without
trial—that their execution with
out trial was necessary, lawful,
and justifiable.
What a howl there would 1 have
been bad that proposition to coin
an unlimited quantity of Ameri
can Filipino silver dollars come
from a democrat.
Gen. Leonard Wood continues
to ignore that executive order
against officials trying to influ
ence Congressional legislation.
It took some hammering to
make them see the correctness of
the democratic demand that all
war taxes be wiped out, but no
vote was cast against the repeal
bill in either branch of Congress.
Oh, of course, the friends of
Miles and Schley love the admin
istration for its treatment of
those brave officers.
There is logic in the argument
of Gov. Beckham, of Kentucky,
that it is the buyer of dock-tailed
horses who should be attacked
and not the seller.
When it comes to general pop
ularity, Gen. Fitz Lee has been
showing that he is in it.
Fred. Funston is said to have
been much chagrined by his visit
to Washington. He expected to
be lionized, and found himself
almost ignored.
If the next President is to be a
domocrat, it will be necessary to
nominate a man that is on speak
ing terms with the party.
Gen. Miles seems to have kill

that was prepared by Corbin and

Recent language therein indi

Commons is correctly named.
The English lord who has been
ostracized by English society for
striking his wife, who has secur
ed a divorce from him, might
find consolation among the toad
ies on this side of the Atlantic.
Isn't Emporor William rather
overdoing the thing in his
tempts to jolly the American
people by attentions to the
Roosevelts ?
There is nothing doing in the
Isthmian Canal line in the Sen

So the gold standard republi

1894, and are com posed of moun

"Conforming with the wishes

Trout Lake where permanent
quarters will be established dur

the 15th to the 26th of July, in
clusive. Trout Lake, aside from
being remarkably beautiful and
enchanting is one of the most
ideal and attractive camp-grounds
in the Cascade range. A spot
full of dreamy splendor where
the atmosphere is redolent with
the perfume of wild flowers. The
clearest water, the gamest trout,
the most colossal sculpturing in
Nature, may be seen from its

The customary camp-fire lecture
and mountain-lore will be rigidly
observed as a part of the outing
program. We expect to have
with us many scientists from
abroad and elsewhere.

The fight between the Ameri
can tobacco trust and the Imper
ial tobacco trust, of Great Brit
ian, which has been going on for
some time across the Atlantic, is
also to be carried on over here,
and the Universal tobacco trust
is said to have joined forces with
the British concern,
fight. It will be beneficial to the
public if they fight each other
into bankruptcy.

Mr. Roosevelt has decided that
his order against government

It is now officially
that War department officials are
seriously alarmed at the aw'ful
increase of disease among the
American soldiers in the Philip
Van Anda Mining and Milling
company, limited, of Boise. Cap
ital stock, $40,000, divided into
400,000 shares of the par value of
10 cents. The incorporators are
John L. Wallace, Walter J. Wal
lace, Jennie Wallace, Horace E.
Neal, J. E. Tourtelotte, H. L.
Warren and Elizabeth Warren.
The above is from a late Boise
Statesman. This is the Warren
& Wallace group of gold mines
three miles south of Bonanza,
and up Rankin gulch one mile
west of Yankee Fork,
was a 2-stamp prospecting mill
put up last fall. The ledges are
gold quartz exclusively, from one
to four feet in width, and carries
values from $10 to $35 and
wards per ton. Warren now has
a contract of running a tunnel on
one of the ledges.
It is another little help for our
county, as the incorporators of
Boise are people of means.
The owners of the "Letha"
mine on Dickins hill (Lew Claw
son and Frank Georgetta), have
during the past winter opened
a large vein of good ore in a new
tunnel several hundred feet be
low the old works. The ore is a
sulphide, some of it carrying
high values in gold, silver and
copper. __
There are a class of men who
are seldom, if ever, appreciated
at their true value. In this en
lightened age they are commonly
called "Dad." It is "dad" that
humps himself year in and year
out, on the farm, in the office
workshop, in order that his toy
or girl may go away to school,
and upon their return, that the
boy may have a tine horse and
top buggy and the girl a costly
piano. It is "dad" that hustles
and cultivates great
knots on his hands and becomes
stoop-shoulderedjn order that
his offspring may revel in luxury
and make fools of themselves.
His sous and daughters have
learned at his expense to despise
his old-fashioned
secretly laugh at the style of his
Sunday coat and bell-crowned
hat. On Sunday when his daugh
ter has company and he would
like to sit in the parlor and listen
to the music, he is given in var
ious ways to understand that his
presence is not desirable, and
the poor old man goes out into
the kitchen and stays the remain
der of the afternoon. God help
the son or daughter who
back on "dad.
