The "Flu" has at Last
Reached Challis!
Since Friday of this week,
u cases of Spanish Influen
ça have developed in this lo
Those reported to date as
afflicted with the dread dis
ease are: John McKinney, of
Salmon, Mrs. Lottie Mc
60wn, Frank L. Hudlow,
franklin Nickerson, Ralph
Batter, Aunty Melhone,
Fred Matlejr, E. W. Hovey,
B. K. Dodge, and several
members of the Ftmkhouser
femily.. Several cases are re
portek in Pahsamaroi.
The picture shows, dances,
pool halls, schools and all
other public gatherings have
keen prohibited and it is
hoped that the disease will
be confined to those who are
afflicted with it at present.
It is thought that John
McKinney brought the dis
ease in. Mr. McKinney eva
ded the quarantine guard at |
the Watt bridge and after
being here two days was ta
ken ill with the disease.
The authorities in charge,
during the absence of Dr.
Kirtley, who was summoned
to appear in court at Mac
kay. did not know what ac
tion to take in the matter,
as Mr. McKinney stated
that he had been five days
on the road from Salmon to
this city.
However, the "flu" is

In an interview with
District Judge F. J. Cow
en, at Mackay this week
the editor of this paper
Was convinced that the
interpretation placed on
the warning given by
the Judge to the people
of this locality was an
The warning referred
to is the one wherein the
Judge stated something
to the effect that "we
were not receding from
our position and that
unless we changed our
methods we would find
ourselves in a worse po
sition than Spanish In
fluenza eould possibly
put us."
The Judge informed us
that the meaning he
sought to convey was
the possible loss of life
resulting from the bitter
feeling which appeared
to exist in both Challis
and Mackay.
In justice to the Judge,
we feel it our duty to
place before our readers
the meaning he meant to
convey to our citizens,
and subseqent events de
cidedly prove that the
Judge's theory on the
subject was not without
here! We urge everyone to
particularly careful and
aid the health officials in ev
ery way in stamping out the

posed to Movement.--Aboth*r County Seat
Egg Goes Rotten, in the Hatching.
Last week information was received here to the effect
that a movement was on foot in Pahsamaroi valley mid
Lemhi county to annex all that lection of Custer county
lying within the valley to Lemhi county.
Our business interests here
tion should be takeq on the
sisting of Messrs. Knrtky, _ _________________ p ____ p
Hudlow and Job motored to f * point near the Guy Ed
wards ranch and held a conference in the open air regard
ing the reported movement, with a delegation of Salmon's
representative citizens.
These gentlemen not only denied having anything to do
with the proposed annexation but stated emphatically
that they were opposed to any such movement. They ad
mitted, however, that several Pahsamaroi men seemed to
be desirous of such a change in the map of Central Idaho.
We have been reliably informed that the prime instiga
tors of the movement are Roy B. Herndon and George W.
Meitzler, two business men of May, and I. R. Wilson and
F. M. Kobbs, two stockmen of the valley.
The Salmon City delegation stated that they apprecia
ted and were desirous of maintaining the friendship which
now exists between their city and Challis and simply look
ed upon the matter as one over 5 which no alarm should be
felt, stating that the influences at work on the proposi
tion were neither weighty nor forceful enough to attain
the result desired and that the satire business interests of
Salmon City were absolutely opposed to the movement.
We are also informed that the movement was being fa
thered by Mackay in order that this section of the county
wonld be so weakened by the loss of the Custer county
section of Pahsamaroi, that two years hence, when the
Mackay interests proposed (if their project were success
ful) to move the County seat from Challis to Mackay,
they would be much nearer a successful termination of the
long and bitter struggle which they have waged to take
away from Challis something which is of vital importance
to the welfare of the town.
The situation has devolved itself into the fact that the
agitators in the matter have failed to take into considera
tion the stand which Lemhi county interests would take,
and without that support the entire proposition assumes
the aspect of mere child's play or another county seat egg
gone rotten in the hatching.
