Thursday Messrs. H. W. .Stev
enson, E. T. Brandon and O. C.
Wyatt, of Doumacque Plains,
arrived in Cottonwood ns a com
mittee appointed by the people
of their section to interview the
business men of the several towns
of the Prairie, relative to the
construction of a wagon road
across Salmon river to the Prai
rie. The road in question corn
UÔ Plains to
mences at the head of Middle
canyon at the "Wild Horse" cor
ral, then running down said can
yon to Rice creek, thence to Sal
mon river at the mouth of Rocky
canyon, thence up the canyon to
intersect the county road run
ning south from Cottonwood.
The people of the Doumacque
Plains are now compelled to
reach the Prairie via White Bird,
at which point they have to cross
the ferry and climb a steep hill.
This hill is so steep that wagons
going clown rough-lock tooth
hind wheels and chain a drag log
behind in order to reach the bot
tom with safety. The ferry at
this point also affords considera
ble opportunity for dissatisfac
tion, as thecommitte informs the
Report that in order to get their
mail they must necessarily pay
$1.50 for crossing the ferry, and
teams have been charged as high
as $4.00 to cross,
The proposed new road, it is
claimed, affords an excellent
grade on both sides of the river,
and as there are about 200 per
sons now located on the Plains
it stands to reason that all the
towns of the Prairie will at once
appreciate the importance of the
road and raise the necessary
funds for completion. The com
mittee informed the Report that
if the Prairie would raise $700
they would undertake the com
pleting of the road and ferry and
will commence work at once.
Cottonwood as usual is coining
to the front in the matter and
we trust her sister towns will al
so join hands in the work. The
people of fee Plains are also
much in need of mail facilities
and as soon as the proposed road
iH completed will, beyond doubt,
receive the favorable action of
the department in the matter.

This meeting has proven to he
one of the most interesting of the
season and as it Was Voted to
have open doors to the public,
we anticipate It will he hut a
short time when the society will
have a fine attendance and prove
quite an enjoyable affair to the
members and interested friends.
The Outlook Somewhat
The first of the week Commis
sioners Robert Schleecher of
Lewton, Silas Beede of Oskaloo*

Washington, D. C., accompanied
by J. A. Campbell, James1
and Ray Arrant, of Lapwai,!

in the city and took rooms at
the Cottonwood House Wednes
day night of last week. The
next morning they took carriages
and drove to Kamei to interview
the Indians and secure, if possi
ble, their signatures to a treaty
for the unalloted portion of the
Nez Perce reservation. After
several days of hard work they
returned and reported their trfp
Monday morning they return
ed to Lewiston believing that
their work had been fruitless,
Wednesday word reached Cot*
tonvood that the Kamei Indians
had repented of their obstinacy
and had sent an lndiati police to
have the commissioners return,
as they were all willing to sub
mit to the terms proposed. It
now looks as if We can expect
a si»ee(ly opening of the reserva
tion, as we were informed that
the necessary number of signa
tures can be secured if the Kam
With this reservation thrown
open we can expect the grandest
influx of immigration that Ida
ho county lias ever seen.
The commissioners inform the
Report that much of the diffi
culty they have encountered was
owing to a few influential Indi
ans who were either bought Up
by outside money or were owners
of large hands of stock and Were
working from personal motives.
As Others See Us.
