The territory of Al- Creek turas in square miles is just about double that of the entire State of thing New Jersey which is really a com- ward monwealtn of no mean dimensions, air. Turn over the leaves of statistics given in the World or Tribune almanacs and view the figures, for ! took . they are easily ascertainable. If i that the people of the state named were ! obliged to go to Trenton to settle ! estates and follow up appeals from houn justices courts and cases certified If where titles come in question, they ter would esteem it a great hardship, rusty There transportation is easy, rail roads running to and from nearly every town, ciity and hamlet, ana even with these conveniences, were with its expanse doubled, what a wrong, it would be considered by the people men. they were suffering? Here we have roads and [Mountain passes, which in the winter can only be crossed by on those who possess the art of snow- as shoeing. The last term of our court at Hailey, was to have been' held May 15. Inconsequence of the illness over of Judge Hays it was continued un- over til 16th of June, then until a later 1 date. When the docket was made j Up for May, there were, we were in- ! formed, 118'civil cases on the docket ! and about six weeks ago District ; Attorney Roberts gave out that j there were about twenty-eight civil j cases. The number, since, we have I the no means of knowing save that on this side of the range, there has been j three shooting affairs to our know ledge and many appeals and cases the certified up to the district court. a,J It is probable now that no court, will be held until October 23.

During the winter there i is ten or twelve feet of snow on the divide, between Atlanta and Rocky j a,, Bar; generally six feet at the Bar • and for miles out, on the high road i between Pine Grove and Hailey ' seven or eight feet. How are wit-; qesses to get out to go to Hailey, especially women and sometimes 1° children? How many people will ; be oîfged to abandon their suit in court and allow them to be stricken from the docket because they can : ^ not get their witnesses over to Hai-, ley before snow falls and keep them ; there until spring?

V ith a small docket and court held at a , season of the year when the people j can move about with a reasonable celerity the chiefest object of the, government, the redress of the j grievances of the citizens, the P re " nervation of the public peace, and the punishment of crime can bebest attained.___ A PROPOSITION ONLY, It has been suggested to us that it would be better for each of the political parties in Elmore county to preserve its integrity and send delegates to both the conventions. with understanding that when it shall be attempted to pledge them j to support nominations against di-j vision or m any other manner act inimical to our interests, such dele- ; gates be instructed to withdraw. | Whatever we may have said has ; been only by way of suggestion. ' No man, editor or otherwise, should have, or pretend to have, autocratic power. If this course should be considered advisable we must still be ready to coalesce with either party or act independently and adopt the principle of the old Puritanic Captain, "Trust in God and pray to him, but keep your pow-! der dry." It is folly to underrate the obstacles we have to encounter. THE 8H1KETOWN. ... . ... ,. What a bugaboo it is upon the partef some of the Wood Hiver pa pere to etatethat the only object of agitation of the county division question is to get a county seat at Msuntain Home. The county seat question is discussed only among the Wood Hiver people. Wc have not arrived to this point as yet. When the time comes for its con sidération, should we. not be able with the amount of intelligenoe we possess tp satisfactorily arrange the matter, it will be time for the wise . men of Hailey to step to the front and kindly tender their sage ad vice. We feel perfectly certain that they will not cause us to suffer on ac count of any dearth of wisdom this side of the Sawtooth range. The boarding house at Banner was destroyed by fire on the 18th and Mike MoCulougb and Con. Burngathner were burned to death. Emperor Frederick, of Germany died on the 14th. His son Willi«» aoceeeds him on the throne. — - -71 MESSAGE FROM THE AIR. the .. 1 j t prospectors in the early days of this coast were truly of a nature to dred make the stoutest heart feint at j times—and they do not usually j hayc rest upon beds of roses in these late , - g . days. A few months ago during a pleas-, nr ! ant sunny day. while the children . com of O. F. Calhoun were playing in , ftg the yard of their residence on Cedar ^ Creek in Owyhee county, Leon E. m Calhoun, a little boy, noticed some thing drop near by and looking up- do ward saw a large bird sailing in the hu air. Curosity prompted the little fellow to pick up the object, which proved to be a small roll of tin. He ! took it to his mother and stated i that it "fell in the yard." On ex ! amination it appeared to have been ! rolled up with care, and Mrs. Cal houn unrolled it with great caution, If was of tin—a piece of an oldjoys ter can—and on being unrolled a rusty time-worn slip of paper was found which contained a map of a mountainous country, lakes, etc., j Full drawn in a rude manner evidently with the hope that if ever found it ' might bring relief to the starving men. By the aid of a magnifying glass we are enabled to give the fol lowing description of the drawings on the slip of paper and the words, as far as the time-worn sheet will permit: One side of the slip of paper rep resents a range of mountains, and over one are the words,"TwinMts." over the other "Hard Mts." Be 1 tween these mountains appears the j word "Lake." On the lower left ! hand corner, immediately under the ! representation of a high peak is the ; word "volcano," and also "(told j Fields.' A road is represented as j running along the lake shore, with I the words, "30 leagues to Sentinel j peak"—"Oasis"—"Desert road."— ! j ''Do the desert road past the lake, Then at the bottom of this side of the paper is written, "Peter Faklm a,J d Antonio Mantes a dien in the montans fer grub." On the opposite ! of .the paper appears the words, near as we can decipher A Bird Drops a Note From Sttrvlnft Prospector*—A Mystery. The trials and tribulations of I Save Afar For Our ! i ! j I» aa . > them: "I, Antonio Mantes swear to at 1 the truth of this.
