That Cottonwood needs such a park was forciably brought to the attention of a numt>er of business men within the past ten days. Several automobiles have stopped here and the occupants thereof have asked if Cotton wood had a tourist park. Had we had such a park every one of these cars and their occupants would haw at least spent one night in the town.

"POLITICAL BEE BUZZING" W'hile there still remains a few days before the first day for fil ing nomination papers, for the primary, June 1, the "political bee" in Idaho county has began to buzz in such a manner that some of the would-be candidates names can be distinctly under stood. Only two of the present county officials have declared them-; selves as candidates for re-elec- ! tion as "stated in the Chronicle two weeks ago, Henry Teicher i for county auditor and Calvin Hazelbaker for county assessor, j both on the Republican ticket. "Political gossip" however, has ; connected the name of William j Eller and O. D. Hamlin of Cot tonwood and Chester Arnold, nresent deputy sheriff and Nate j Pettil)one as probable candidates for the sheriff's office. The names of Dale Clark, Nate Petti bone. Ed Vincent, Aug Schrooder and Lafe Yates for the berth of county commissioners. Bert Auger and F. E. Fogg for county attorney. Wilbur Campbell and John Bvrom for probate judge Nate Pettil*one and Henry Teich er for county auditor. Cal H»z elbaker and William Ingram for county assessor. Lloyd Fenn, Edgar Fry for state representa tive. Seth Jones for state sena tor. Mrs. Otie Cone for county treasurer. We also understand that the nresent county superin tendent. Mrs. Lyons, will not be a candidateior re-election. The names mentioned above, with the exception of Teicher and Hazelbaker, have come to us not from any authentic source j but from the "buzzzing bee" or "political gossip." MOVING CRUSHER.

STATE OPENS BID ON HIGHWAY BOISE COMPANY MAKES LOWEST OFFER ON CON STRUCTION OF ROAD. Ten bids, one of which was from a Minneapolis construction company, were opened Saturday in the office of W. J. Hall, state commissioner of public works at Boise, for the construction of a section of the North and South highway in Idaho county be tween Whitebird and Lucile. The total length of the project is 9.91 miles. D. F. Murphy and company ol Boise were the lowest bidders for the work, but the contract will not be awarded until a thorough check is had on all bids submit ted. The Boise company bid $137,336.21. State officials were pleased with the bids received, as most of them were far under the engi neers' estimate of the cost of the work. The state's estimate was about $185,000 with 10 per cent of this amount additional for engineering and contingencies. The Winston Brothers com pany of Minneapolis were the high bidders. Their estimate was $229,850.29. K. L. Goulter and company of Waterville, Wash., was the bidder next to the Boise company with a total of $151,599.44. The piece of highway to be constructed runs through the Salmon river canyon and a great part of the work will 1« in soli«! rock. It is estimated that there are more than 75,000 cubic yards of this material to remove. Loose rock is estimated at about half this amount and the earth excavation is placed at nearly 100,000 cubic yards. The project is l>eing paid for partly by state funds and partly by federal funds and is through one of the roughest parts of the i state. Also, it closes one of the remaining large gaps in a contin uous improved highway connect ing the northern and southern pails of the state. In all the state and federal government have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars in im provide a highway connecting the two sections of the state that will be open the year round. It 4 : will also eliminate the necessity of traversing Washington and Oregon when motoring between the northern and southern parts of the state. SCHOOLS CLOSE.
