JAMES o'meaba : : : : : î : : : ï ï editor. SATURDAY MORNING, : JUNE 29, 1867. NOTICE TO PATRONS. We bave contracted with Mr. IX McGbew to deliver the Semi-Weekly Idaho World to all of our subscrib ers who wish the paper left at their residences or places of business, in this city, Moorestown, Buena Vista Bar and vicinity, and he is authorized to collect and receipt for the same. The terms are $5 per three months, in advance. I. H. BOWMAN & Co. Idaho City, June 29, 1867. Pioneer's Letter. —In consequence of the space devoted in this issue to Chief Justice McBride's Masonic Address, we are compelled to exclude the welcome letter of our faithful Pioneer City correspondent, and a good deal of other matter. -- » »«■« ---— - A New Paper. —Two numbers of The Guard, a new weekly Democratic paper pub lished in Eugene City, Oregon, by J. B. Alex ander &■ Co.', have reached us. It is a fair looking, well-conducted little journal, sound in its political faith, and we wish for it complete success and a long existence. Shot Himself.— From Shepard, Wells, Fargo & Co.'s messenger, we learn that, a few days ago, a Frenchman, name not known, liv ing in Burnt Elver Valley, accidentally shot himself through the upper arm with his own Henry rifle. The bone was completely shat icred, and it was feared that the poor fellow would lose his life from the wound. Affray.— An obliging correspondent sends us a report of a shooting affray which occurred in Holbrook's saloon in Pioneer City, on Tues day evening, between the landlord and a man named O'Brien. Its origin was a dispute about a small bill due at the bar, and it fortu nately ended without any serious injury hav ing beea done to either party, notwithstanding both a pistol and knife were used by the an tagonists. Better keep your tempers, and ab «taiu from pistol and knife exercise, boys. Radical Nominations.— The following is the State ticket nominated by the Radicals of California : For Governor, George C. Gorham ; Lieu tenant Governor. J. P. Jones ; Secretary of State, W. H. Parks ; State Controller, Josiah Howell; Justice of Supreme Court, John Cur rey ; Surveyor General, Charles F. Reed ; At torney General, J. G. McCullough; State Treasurer, Ramon Pacheco; Harbor Com missioner, Charles Clayton; Clerk Supreme Court, R. H. Farquhar; State Printer, D. O. McCarthy ; Superintendent Public Instruction, John Swett; Congress (First District), T. G. Phelps ; Congress,^ (Second District), Wm. H. Higby ; Congress (Third District), Chancellor Hartson. Mining at Pioneer City.—A friend who lives in Pioneer City writes to us that—"a Portuguese company on Orlean Bar, opposite this place, made a clean up after a run of thirteen nights—not working in day time—and the product was one hundred and ten ounces The same company's previous clean up, after a run of eleven nights, netted one hundred and five ounces and nine dollars. In the Bar claims of Wilson & Giberson one week's run of three sluices has yielded seven thousand dollars. Davis & Co.'s claim, next below on the Bar, has just given upwards of two tlious and dollars after a week's run." Products like these indicate that Pioneer City is very much above being a "played out" mining dis trict. No wonder the Lemhi fever had small effect there. A Splendid Ticket. —The Democratic State Convention of California met in San Francisco, June 19th, aud organized with Eugene Casserly as Chairman, and A. C. Brad ford Secretary. It was the most able and re spectable body ever convened in that State, the delegates having been chosen from among the most eminent men in California. A plat form was adopted affirming that the war set tied the great issues involved in it; that a mild, equitable, kindly and just course towards the South is due and right ; that the policy of tiie Radical Congress is altogether proscriptive and unjust ; that the suffrage question belongs respectively to the States ; and that the people of this coast are entitled to protection to pre vent the influx of Chinese and other Asiatics who come to cheapen labor. Col. Crockett nominated Henry H. Haight as candidate for Governor; Gen. Winn nominated P. B. Read ing, and Oliver of Tuolumne named Gen. Rose crans. Col. Reading declined. Judge Barber said Rosecrans would not be a candidate. The nomination of Haight was then made by ac clamation. Mr. Haight came to California in 1B49. He is a lawyer of eminence, of unim peachable integrity in every walk of life, a na tive of New York, and the son of the late Fletcher M. Haight, U. S. District Judge for the Southern District of California, who ranked foremost among the Bar of St. Louis, Mo., for years. The Convention then nominated Wm. Holden, of Mendocino, for Lieut. Governor ; Dr. Nichols, of Sacramento, for Secretary of State ; and Robt. Watt, of Nevada, for Con troller. After makiog these nominations the Convention adjourned to meet next morning, and the dispatches give us no further informa tion. The ticket so far nominated is a very strong and unexceptionable one, and is almost certain to be successful. THE BUSINESS SITUATION. Idaho City merchants cannot complain of the business situation, especially when they contrast the state of trade here with that which seems to universally prevail all over the coun try—East, West, and on this coast. All through California, Nevada, Oregon, Washing ton and Montana, we hear of unprecedentedly dull business times. Iu Boise City, close hy us, trade is stagnant. But here, and in every large camp in this Basin, there is a steady flow of fair, profitable trade. From experienced merchants, who have latelv visited here—from Oregon, Washington, and California, and from other portions of this Territory—we have the statements that in no other place they have visited this year is there so good a condition of trade as in this city and Basin. Elsewhere, the usual and unerring consequences of infla tion, of continued excesses in business, and of precipitated dullness resulting from them, are beginning to be felt, or they have been suffer ed, with very trying effects. Insolvency, stag nation of trade, shattering and loss of business credits, and general depression in both the commercial and money markets, are visible in nearly all the chief cities and large interior towns or mining camps on this slope of the Rocky Mountains. But no such gloomy or un happy condition of things exists here, among our merchants. The crash that is sure to happen in so many other places will not visit the business mart of Idaho. There is substance to the mercantile houses, and solid foundation t > the business pursuits of all here. If profits do not reach the high figures of past brighter days, aud sales are not so large in the aggregate, the trade which does steadily flow is conducted on a sound, prndent, solvent, wholesome system, and the gains are repre sented by actual values, not by paper predicat ed'on the solvency of others far off', or on that of a credit which is likely never to be realized. If there are no great speculations here, and no big operations gone into, neither are there great losses sustained by trade reverses, nor great swindles perpetrated to secure speedy tortunes. In every branch of business—mer cantile, mining, aud among the mechanical pursuits—there is stability and absolute solven cy. Where else can there be pointed out, at this time, either so large a mining camp, or any large interior town, or any city outside of San Francisco, on this side of the Rocky Moun tains, which can present so fair a business sys tem, or so sound a foundation for it, and an equally wholesome trade, with Idaho City ? If there be any such place, we are not aware of it. y THE LATEST FROM LEMHI. By mail yesterday we received the Salmon City Mining Neios of June 20th, and from it glean the following items : One hundred men left Salmon City and a large additional number stampded from Lees burg on the I5th and Ifitli, in search of report ed rich discoveries on the head of Little Lost River, sixty to eighty miles south of Salmon City. A nugget worth $70 was found by a pros pector on Salmon river, fifteen miles above the city, a few days ago. A difficulty occurred near Wood River, Ca mas Prairie, a short time since, between some traders from Boise and a small baud of Ban nock ludiaus, in which one Indian was acci dentally killed. The Indians were peaceable. A fisherman at the Lakes, fifteen miles from Salmon City, killed an Indian, on the 15th, for stealing his seine. A man named Tracy stole $250 in greenbacks from D. White, who keeps a restaurant in Leesburg. He was followed to Sierra Gulch, caught, and, under threats of hanging, forked over the money and lett. A large number of persous have gone off prospecting to Big Horse Prairie, fifty miles from Salmon on the road to Bannack, where rich diggings are reported. Geo. B. Brower reports he has discovered a mammoth quartz legde forty-five miles east of Salmon City, from forty tù sixty feet wide, and two miles long. It is called the "Fleesou District," and Mr. Brower is Recorder of quartz claims there. - LETTER FROM HELENA. By the kindness of J. W. and Ben. F. Wood, of this city, we are enabled to place before our readers the following extract from a letter written at Helena, M. T., by their late confi dential clerk, Mr. Lewis Eckhart, who is on his way to Western Virginia : Helena City, June 13,1867. Dear Friends : After a weary ride of three days and nights from Salt Lake City, I arrived here on the evening of the Jlth iust., and found many acquaintances from Idaho, among whom are Billy Jack, L. Remish, Phil. Kœnigsberger, Schwabacher, Loeb of Placer ville, and Henry Allen. Also met Andy Kerr of St. Joe. Helena is a little larger place than Idaho City, presents a lively appearance, and from three to six times as much business s done than in Idaho City, but apparently mostly for glory—at least there is little or no profit on sales. At preseut the market is full stocked, with the exception of a few articles, and freights have not begun to arrive from Fort Benton yet There are and will be due at that point, in the next four weeks, from thirty-six to forty steamers loaded with gen eral merchandise for this place. Money is very tight. I am told that some merchants here are borrowing from the banks (there be ing eight in this city), and paying from eight to ten per cent, per month interest, with flour and other goods as collateral, at half their present marked value. Judging from appear ances, I am inclined to believe that a grand crash must follow the great influx of goods. I am told that the placer diggings in this vi cinity are pretty well worked out, and the hopes of a resurrection of trade is through the medium of quartz, in which a great many have the most implicit confidence that it will pay rich. I think the place has seen its best days. Old Rudolph is here, and has just made a trip around the outside camps, looking for a location for opening business. I passed through Virginia City, and saw Frank Drake and Oestricher there. Did not see enough of the place to form a just opinion of it. LEWIS ECKHART. LETTER FROM WASHINGTON. 'The extracts below are taken from a letter written at Washington by a prominent citizen of Idaho who is sojourning at the Federal cap ital, to a friend in this city. He writes May 30th, and says : Old Howlett's report to Secretary Seward has at length been filed, together with a lot of affidavits from Radicals in Boise City, includ ing Reynolds of the Statesman* Holbrook and Street have been long watching for this report. In it, I observe that Young, the Clerk of the Supreme Court of Idaho, has made au affida vit which reflects very heavily on George Ains lie, Esq., of your city. Youug swears that he heard Ainslie declare, ** the town (Boise City) would have to be burned, and, by God, I am just the man who w T ould set it on lire." [Right here we wall say that we have read this portion of the letter to Mr. Ainslie, aud he authorises us to state that there is not one word or glim mer of truth in Young's sworn declaration, as given above ; Mr. Ainslie brauds Young as an infamous liar and deliberate perjurer.— Ed. World.] Howlefct is very severe on Riggs among oth ers. Very little attention has been paid to his report, nor is the Department likely to pay much credit to it. Mr. Street has filed a cor rect statement of the whole matter. There is more delay iu Judge Kelly's case. The charges Holbrook made against him were referred to the Attorney General, who passed them to his Assistant, Ashton, a Radical, and friendly to Kelly. Ashton had them in his hands a week, aud resigned. Bickwell, a Con servative, will assume the duties of the office next week, and a decision in Kelly's case will then perhaps be made. Stansbury is so busy with Reconstruction cases that he has no time to devote to Territorial business.. Kelly is ev idently badly frightened, and has gone to New York to procure counsel. It is difficult to get anything done for any of the Territories, as the condition of affairs in the South monopolizes nearly all the time of the Departments and Cabinet. Theo. Burmes ter, Esq., of Boise City, has been appointed by Chief Justice Chase as Register in Bankrupt cy for Idaho. Kelly wanted John C. Henley, Esq 4 , or Prickett appointed, but Holbrook and Street succeeded iu getting it for Burmester. Judge Cummins' case will be attended to when Congress meets, but it is uncertain wiien that will be—not iu July, I am quite sure. Secretary M'CuIloch has finally agreed to allow the appropriation of $21,000, for Legis lative expenses of 18Ô7-68 to be applied in payment of old vouchers of previous sessions. Gilson's bonds shall be sued on as soon as an U. S- District Attorney shall be appointed for Idaho. Old Gov. Wallace is here, waiting, like Mi cawber, for " something to turn up." He tried hard to get the appointment of Register for the Lewiston Land Office, but Fenu's friends were too heavy for him, and the old place-hunter is now watching for the next sop to be thrown. Holbrook is soon going to make a visit to Ohio, and Street thinks of starting back for Idaho, ic the Fall. Wm. J. Terry is here, and has obtained a patent for something out of which he is likely to make a fortune. Wm. Dips Douthitt lately married his landlady in New York. She was a widow with plenty of years, several children, and a brick bouse and other property, which last " incumbrances," it is thought, most won upon the lovely Wil liam.
