W AY FOR PARK IN
The Cottonwood Commercial
club, held a very interesting
meeting at the Cottonwood
Hotel, Tuesday and besides en
joying a splendid miday meal
prepared by J. R. McFadden,
discussed the advisability of pro
curing a tourist park to be used
by automobile tourists traveling
through the country. The senti
ment of the meeting was unani
mous in favor of such a proposi
ton and a committee composed of
Fred Simon, William Frick and
Charles Johnston was appointed
by Chairman Belknap to investi
gate different sites for such a
park and to report at the next
meeting which will be held on
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.
Cottonwood is going to have a
tourist park and it will be second
to none on the prairie. The com
mittee in charge has several
locations in sight, but none have
been decided upon definitely.
Those present at the Commer
cial Club luncheon Tuesday
were: Chairman Belknap, Secre
tary Flint, Fred Simon, Charles
Johnston, J. F. Brown, William
Simon, R. A. Nims, Roy Speck,

"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
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

elbaker and William Ingram for

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
The mammoth rock crusher,
the property of Ira Dole of Lew
iston. located two miles north of
Cottonwood and which has been
used for crushing rock to ballast
the tracks of the Camas Prairie
railroad, is being dismantled this

lins of Lewiston who were re
centy awarded this work by
Grant. Smith and Co., the main
contractors. Dole and Collins
will also crush rock for the road
leadhig from Winchester to the

In the last run made by the
crusher, in the rock pit north of

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
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
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

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
: will also eliminate the necessity
of traversing Washington and
Oregon when motoring between
the northern and southern parts
of the state.
