K. of P. Banquet.
The K. of P. Lodge of this place which has long been justly celebrated for its "Friend hip, Charity and Be nevolence'' gave one of its famous banquets Monday eve, which was at tended by local members and their families and several visitors. The members retired to the lodge room leaving their families in the lower hall playing games and enjoying a social good time. A short session of lodge was held, after which all were invited to the banquet room where the visitors and ladies, and later the members, were served with oyster soup, sand witches, coffee, peaches and cream and cake. E. E. Cooper and C. C. Booher distinguished themselves as usual. After the banquet all who were not Knights returned to the lower hall and proceeded to have a social good time. The visitors from Kendrick were: J. W. Pircel, Fred Beckwith, P. W. Green, Frank Brocke, A. Hill, N. R. Hill, Claude Stanton, J. A. McIntosh, W. M. McCrea, F. A. Hunter, C. F. Hamlin, T. P. Lorang, E. E. Jacobin. Clarkston people are feeling jubilant over the fruit prospect for the coming season. The continued cold snap has has been particularly favorable for the orchards and vineyards in Clarkston and Vineland. At the same time, the weather has been peculiarly pleasant, mild, mostly clear and highly invigor ating. The coldest weather was 2° be low zero, and the deepest snow about 4 inches, while all the surrounding country was shivering in a temperature 10° to 15° below zero, and wading through from one to four feet of snow, A Good, Old-Fashioned Party. A crowd of about fifty neighbors and friends went to the farm of Jerry Har rington Wednesday evening, the 16th, to indulge in a card party and other recreations. It was one of those good, old-fashioned parties, which was en joyed both by old and young. The forepart of the evening was spent play ing cards and other games, to suit all. Victor Nord, of Seattle, a professional accordion player, entertained the crowd with some delightful music. At midnight a dainty lunch was served, after which the light fantastic was trip ped until seven in the morning, music being furnished by the Regel Orches tra. Mr. L. Chapin acted as toast master, and spoke of the development of the country, its products, etc., and made the affair quite instructive. The crowd departed, pronouncing that they had been royally entertained, and wishing to be entertained soon again at this happy home. Notice. Manley, the barber, formerly of Hay's old stand, is now located at the Idaho Barber Shop, having bought an interest there, and will be pleased to meet all old patrons as well as new ones. „ . • „ ,» TUn Unm/ietc llailfSht£>r I Ilv V/U 1 IVIV.IN UdU^lllvl . .

It has been discovered that the State of Idaho has issued deficiency warrants to the amount of $50,000 to meet the expense of the prosecution of Moyer, Heywood and Pettibone, the alleged assassinators of ex-Governor Steu nenberg. And immediately some are raising a howl and condemning Governor Gooding for this debt. Let us see! Was not a crime committed and was not someone guilty of a monstrous wrong? No one can deny this. If so then was the state to stand idly by while her people made the humiliating admission that for lack of funds the law could not be enforced and the guilty brutes hunted down and, if found, tried and punished? Have we, a sovereign state, made up of brave men and women, who love liberty and respect law, reached that point where we must or would, for a few dollars, hang our heads in shame, while crime, hideous and fiendish, having struck down a citizen in the shadow of his home, went unpunished? Perish the thought for it is enough to make the blood of righteous men boil. Better a thousand times bankrupt the state than let the perpetrators of the horrible crime escape. Better exhaust the last resource of the people than acknowledge our weakness and admit that our laws are inadequate to meet the emergency. And if there is one thing that ought to fill the patriotic men of Idaho with enthusiastic pride it is the fact that at the head of our state was a man who had the bravery, courage and manhood to do his duty. Instead of censure Governor Gooding deserves unstinted praise and he who would condemn him is a promoter of disorder and an enemy of the state- Better a million dollar deficiency than the miscarriage of justice in the case at bar. The Election of Borah. If any element in our state required evidence to prove the wisdom of the j methods employed this year in Idaho for the selection of a United States , senator the events of the past week j ought certainly to have supplied such i proof. So smoothly, harmoniously and i agreeably was the election of Mr. , Borah'consummated that the important ; work was accomplished without one single suspicion of dishonesty or with out even a hint at bribery. Not a word was uttered, not an act committed, not a movement made that has left a blot upon Idaho or cast reflection upon the men composing our state legislature. The whole proceedings are not only j above suspicion, but the course pur sued is one that avoids the appearance of evil, and he who has been chosen as the people's choice by the con vention plan, puts on his senatorial toga with the feeling that the finger of scorn gnd the tongue of scandal has found nothing to do. Freed from the hatred, animosity and bitterness usually engendered in a senatorial fight the contest, or better, lack of contest, has not absorbed the attention and has consumed but little time of those sent to the state capitol to make and cor rect our laws, there to now say that the republican party erred? liam E. Borah that would not prefer to be chosen in exactly the same way Senator Borah was chosen? It ought to cause a feeling of pride in every good man's heart for no citizen of Idaho emerges from the fray with taint upon his name. j I Viewing the proceedings, who is so unmindful Who . , , , , « ,, of the public good that they would go back to the old way? Who is there to as| ire to the high and honored place just given by this state to Wil Prosperity Everywhere.

In Spokane we found that everybody knew about Troy, and gave it credit for being a hummer for busi ness. Quails Died. I It is reported that a great many dead I quail have been found on American ridge during the past week, the birds j evidently having frozen to death during the recent cold weather. It would be ! a wise thing, as well as a humane act, j for every farmer to scatter grain during the severe weather where the birds I could get it and help them live through ! severe weather.

The Woodmen of the World and the Circle held a joint social session in Odd Fellow's hall Wednesday evening, and a big time was had. There was a large attendance and one of the best suppers served that has ever made the tables in the local lodge room creak under the load. The lower floor was also used for a social good time by the younger members of the crowd. Literary.
