___ EnUred in the Pottoffice at Cotton wood, Idaho, at Second-clast matter. PUBLISHED By Every' Friday —THE— Camas Prairie Publishing Co., T ANN ATT & HOGAN, Business Managers. E. T. T ANN ATT, Editor. APRIL. 28, 1893. County Printing. The Denver Tribune of the 21et contains a lengthy article on the county printing which is heartily endorsed by the Report. Owing to the fact that the Re port's bid was not the lowest we have no direct complaint to make on account of not being awarded the contract. But what right the commissioners have to pay from the county funds from $400 to $1,000 per annum on an indefinite contract when the same work was offered to be done by the Report for less than $200 and the Tribune for $150 is a question our taxpayers Bhould investigate. In order to bring the matter fairly before the people find allow them to judge for themselves the follow ing is a synopsis of the three bids aS noW on file at the audit or's office at Mt. Idaho: Bid of A. F. Parket, represent ing the Free Press, was as fol lows: To publish all proceedings of the board of county commission ers without charge; to publish all other notices specified in the call for bids at the rate of ten cents per lirife for the first inser tion and five cents per line for each additional insertion; to publish delinquent tax list at the rate of fifty cents per name; to print election notices for post ing, $7i50 per hundred; to print , election tickets ill form required by lritv, $75.00 for first thousand and $50.00 for each additional thousand. ing, ure of The bid of J. T. Hinkle, rep resenting the Tribune was follows: To publish all proceedings of the board of county commission ere of Idaho County, Idaho, at the regular and special meetings of said board, also all notices of auditor and recorder, assessor, and tax collector; the delinquent tax list and election notices, to gether with all notices given by brder of the board of county Commissioners of said County of Idaho for the period Of two years from àhd after the 10th day of April A; D. 1893 and until the 10th day of April A. D. 1895, for the sum of Ninety ($90) Dollars payable qliartèrlÿ. 2nd. To print election tickets for the sum of $1 per hundred this to include numbering and bidding in forth required by law 3rd. To print élection notices for the sum of $2 per hundred. The bid Of the Report was as follows: For publishing proceedings of bounty commissioners and all notices Specified in thé call for bids, $10 pér quarter; for print ing election tickets, $5 per thou sand; for printing election noti befe $3 pet hundred for firét hun dred or less, and fifty cent's per 'each additional hundred, for publishing delinquent tax list, ten cents per name, All bids were accompanied by good and sufficient bonds; and each paper represented by feome of the heaviest taxpayers of the Prairie. Taking the delinquent iai list of last yeftr of 141 names as a Hasis, and notices of laSt qtiarteV —96 lines of 6 issues each: mak A ing, by Parker's "bid thirty-five vents per line, 5,000 election tickets at their respective am ounts and let each taxpayer fig ure the account for himself. Taking the last quarter as a ba sis, which, we are hound to rec ognize, does not represent a fair estimate of what the population of the next two years will re quire and we can all soon figure that the county is now paying from three to eight times the amount that they are justified in doing. How our county funds are ex pended is a matter that every taxpayer is interested in and should investigate. One bill for printing for the third quarter of 1892 as presented by Mr. Parker amounts to $240—more than the total amount of all printing for the year of either the Report or the Tribune. The New Mill. The prospects of obtaining the 200-bbl roller flouring mill will grow brighter each week. The people of the prairie appreciate the benefits to be derived from a wheat market and although the progress of raising a sufficient subsidy to justify the promoters has been somewhat delayed on account of had weather, yet we have no doubt that when the balance of the people have been reached, the result of the work will be satisfactory and we will get the mill, a About 4 o'clock on the morn ing of the 22nd fire broke out in the kitchen of the Baldwin hotel at Colfax, Wash. The fire origi nated by a Chinaman starting the kitchen fire with coal oil Although the city has $50,000 water works the pumps were out of order and the fire had its own way, The loss is estimated at from $100,000 to $150,000. The Binnard granite building and the Colfax Opera House are des troyfcd as is the larger portion of the business part of the city from Staver & Walker's big warehouse to the old court house building A number will rebuild at once.
