With last week s issue the Cot tonwood Report expired, never to he resurrected. It died a violent death, having been killed by the undersigned, but in its place has sprung up a new ard, we hope, a better mouthpiece of this commun ity—the Camas Prairie Chronjci.e. The new name has l*en taken in order to remove every trace of the paper's former self and also as an indication to our readers that we intend to get out a live, uptodate paper with the interest of Cotton wood and the prairie at heart. We will publish all the news we can find out and courteously usk you all to tell us any news you may know. We have no divining pow ers and are almost strangers, and we assure you that favors of this kind will be highly appreciated. Our political policy will be strict ly nonpartisan. We reserve the right to praise or criticise the ac tions tff all parties from a liberal, fair minded point of view, and will assist in no petty political bicker itigs, come from whence they may. We will take up no fights for anyoue else, and not cause .any of our own if fair dealing will pre vent it, but we wish it understood from the beginning, that it shall not be our policy to turn the left cheek if anyone smite us on the right. We know that that is not what the Good Book teaches us, hut, ''What's bred in the bone, etc.'' We are ever ready and willing to do all in our power to advance the interests of our wonderful country, and to that end we will dedicate this paper It will lie necessary to publish nothing hut the truth to show' outsiders our great advantages and we / shall make it our business to accumu late as much of the truth as pos sible. We thank the people of this sec tion for the encouraging wav they have treated U6 and hope they will be ns liberal with their patronage as with their encouragement, as all our good intentions would he nullified if we were to lack the ne ce68ary capital to carry on the en terprixe. All bills due the Report for the month of March are payable to the undersigned and all delinquent subscriptions are also payable at the Chronicle office. Jos. Rustem ever. F. S. WiMKit. The papers over at Orangeville and Mt. Idaho are on a continual "kick" about their mail service and we can't bhtme them. The way things were run over there lately the people were lucky if they got mail once a week. The Mt. Idaho Mail blames W. K. Travis and the Orangeville Standard blames every one except Mr. Travis for the tar dinese in the mail arrivals, and both papers have no small degree of right on their side. Anyone who is acquainted with the road between Stites and Stuart knows that it is next to impossible to make connections there with a wagon in the spring, "But," as the Mail says, ''whv did Travis take the contract when he knew ttie road as well a» anyone?" If he took the contract to bring up the mail it seems to us no more than right and reasonable that he bring it, up, even if he had to take it from Stuart to Stites on pack horses in order to cross the river at the latter place. Then again, i*. i is high time the government ex- ; tended its contract with the N. P. and haul the mail to the end of the , fond. No one seems to know ex-j uctly why this has not been done, j but everyone seems to think that j there is something crooked some- : where Some politician, probably, has a puH ■ with the government, which he is using to h.s benefit and to the detriment of the entire south half of the prairie. Accord ing to the terms of his contract we cannot see any reason why Mr. Travis can consistently blame any one except himself for not deliver ing the mail on time at Grange ville, unless the train lie late at Stuart. Taken all in all. we think everyone (including Mr. Travis, the railroad company and the gov ernment) are to blame and the people are the losers. The old route by stage from Lewiston (which service Cottonwood enjoys now) gave better satisfaction all i Ver the prairie than the new one does. There will lie some more changes iti the makeup of this paper soon, j STATE NEWS. Weiser bas a eniallsizéd diphthe ria scare. Irvin Holt has been taken to the penitentiary at Boise.

NO CHANGE IN MAIL. Washington. March 19, 1901. Postmaster, Cottonwood, Idaho. Sir: Referring to your telegpnm of the 18th inst., urging the depart ment not to reduce service on route No. 70300, Lewiston to Cottonwood to three times a week, but to con tinue the present six times a week service in force as it is almost im possible to get mail via Grange ville; you are informed that the department has no intention of re ducing. or allowing the service on said route, to he reduced. An application was made to have the service reduced temporarily to three times a week on the ground that .the stock of the contractor was not in condition to perforin more frequent service than three times a week. The application was answered that the six times a week service must be continued, and the postmaster at Lewiston was directed to employ temporary service in event of the failure of the contractor to perform full service on the route.
