M. M. Sweet, Proprietor. Entered at the Challis poHt'Oftlce as second class mail matter. OFFICIAL PAPER OF CUSTER CO. A Kansas man just returned from the isthmus, says the Pan ama Canal will not be completed for two hundred years. His pes simism should be discouuted lib erally, as he failed to get the job he went after. If President Roosevelt decides to act a 8 umpire in that labor game at Chicago, his decision should be easily made, strikes" have already been call ed on the teamsters. ' 'Three A. R. Peacock is being enthu siastically boomed for Congres sional honors in the Pittsburg district. Mr. Peacock has am bition and $20,000,000. To hear the awful way that Grover talks about them, one might suspect that the club women were advocates of free silver. __ Of course a woman can dress on $65 a year. That is a little more than $10 down and $1 a week, and can't one buy every thing one's heart can desire for •that ? You never can tell what Car negie might have said about a coachman marrying a million are's niece, if his opinion had been asked before it was too late. True patriots are scarce. The late Fitzhugh Lee was one of them. Two prominent young lawyers at Guthrie, Okla., exchanged ten shots and succeeded only in wounding a bystander in the neck. Marksmanship of that kind would put a Texas lawyer in contempt of court. On taking his seat at Wash ington, Senator LaFollette means to keep ever before him the high example set by Gov. LaFollette. Secretary of Agriculture Wil son, is predicting that America will soon be importing wheat, but John W. Gates is doubtless convinced that there is May wheat enough in Chicago now to l^st the nation a hundred years. Ion Perdicaris is now starring as an after-dinner speaker. First thing we know he will be on the lecture platform trying to make us regret that we dealt so harsh ly with Raisouli. A Boston clergyman says"Mr. Rockafeller has no ax to grind." The dealer's who have been struck by Rockafeller 's ax, don't believe it needs grinding. Alfred Austin, England's poet leaurbte, is imported to be at work on a poem dealing with the Russo-Japanese war. ought to make them agree to have peace without haggling over terms. That Senatdr Platt, of New York, ought to have known better than Co write love letters to a lady lady member of the bar—it is bad enough to write them to a plain every-day sort of a girl, but one should be Y er y careful with such wise ones as lawyers. He will probably die before he gets out of this affair with the Omaha "Partia. >> An Indiana man lias just sent to the State's conscience fund $1.50, which he says he stole 24 years ago. At that rate, it will take Banker Bigelow a good while to restore that $2,000,000 that he pinched from the Mil waukee bank. While it is against our rule to fall into poetry, the May wheat situation inspires us thusly : Hey diddle, diddle, The cat and the fiddle, The wheat market's gone all to smash. The little "bears" laughed To see such craft, While the banker ran off with the cash. The Kansas City Star tells of a boy who sold an empty beer bottle for a penny, which he dropped in the missionary box Sunday school. The specialists on "tainted money" may resume the debate. St. Louis claims that she now has a population of 714,290, ex cept on Sundays, when all but 290 of them are across the river where the"Budweiser and Wurz berger" flow. Mr. Bryan says the only real peace and quitetude is to be found in religion. He has never visited Challis. ' Every time Rojestvensky at tempts to settle down for a few days rest some foreign policeman demands him to "move on. >> Wisconsin propose to tax bach elors. Follette could make every Stal wart pay triple taxes he would be happy. Now if Governor La If Admiral Nebogatoff does not hurry up and join Admiral Rojestvensky he will earn the title of Admiral Nevergetthere vich. _ A few more Equitable suits and the common man will won der if it pays to continue to pay life insurance premiums. It is time for the sweet girl graduate to begin to plan that graduation gown. The advertiser who sends cir culars about "special opportun ities for investment papermen is fishing in very shal low waters. to news The treasury deficit, which Secretary Shaw said would amount to $18,000,000, now amounts to $30,000,000 but the cheerful Secretary assures us that $30,000,000 is no more to the United States than $1 is to a single citizen. Nevertheless,the Secretary thinks it would be well to tax tea and coffee to make up that deficit. The taxes must amount to 40 for every man woman and child to make that deficit good. Secretary Shaw and Senator Hansbrough have been carrying on a lively correspondence re garding the Secretary's recent order allowing millers to import Canadian wheat, mix it with American wheat, grind the mix ture into flour and secure a re bate on the tariff on such por tions of the foreign wheat as they choose to allege is contain ed in the exported article. From the correspondence,taken in con nection with the testimony of railroad men given before the Senate committee on interstate commerce, we learn some inter esting facts (?) Mr. Shaw says the millers make only 5 cents a barrel on flour. The railway men say the railways lose money on long hauls. If these state ments be true no one profits materially by the importation of wheat because the profits is not enough to repay the millers and the railroads are out of pocket hauling the flour to the seaboard. The only person who can profit is the Canadian farmer, who se cures an increased demand for his wheat, and the foreign con sumer whom the philanthropic millers and railways supply at a loss. Obviously Secretary Shaw and his railroad friends will have to tell us a more credible tale if they want us to believe their statements. at to is a he the 24 j MINERS WANTED.
