GARRETT RIGGS ENDS LIFE WITH LAUDANUM Poor Health Causes his Mental Powers to Fall, Resulting in Death. Word reached the city this morning that Garrett Riggs, an old time resident of Idaho and a man who was universally respected by those who knew him, bad taken laudanum with fatal effect. For quite a while Mr. Riggs had been in poor health, and it is thought thia re sulted in breaking down of his mental powers and in a moment of despondency took the fatal dose. For a number of years the deceased re sided at Moscow where he still has a number of relatives and scores of friends. For several years past he has lived at Peck, making bis home with his child ren. This is the saddest chapter in life's variegated story. A life full of years, given to honest toil and well doing, fill ing bravely and honorably an assigned part in the great drams, with no glitter of wealth, no high political power, no desite to do more than good, help the weak in their struggles, comfort the sick and bury the dead find an end with shattered mind and death by suicide. Only the tenderest feelings must go out to such an one, and charity cover every weakness in his nature; for He who gave him life and guided his foot steps every hour, saw the beginning and knew the end. May his soul rest in peace. Do You Know Him. Governor Hunt has received a letter from the war department stating that there is $108 in the quartermaster de partment belonging to the estate of Jessie Darcy of the Idaho voluuteers. The uarne cannot be found on the muster in or muster out roll of the regiment. If there are any heirs they should com municate with Adjutant General Weaver here.—Boise Statesman. The Park Stts. The park commission has decided to begin at once active work in beautifying the park site on the hill. Ernest Mc Cullough, engineer in charge of the work, was instructed to advertise for bids for fencing the tract.

West will select the trees decided upon by the commission. They are -as follows: English lindens, ao; American lindens, 20; green ash ao; American wbiteash, ao. These will line the adjoining streets. Inside the park will be maples, 25; hssle, 60; white birch, 3; sycamore maples, 25; axsliss, 70. The scheme is beautiful and ita coat will be money that will never be regretted by taxpayers. Grata Shipments. The car shortage is «till a feature in the grain shipments of the Clearwater. The ware houses are all fall to overflow ing and when any relief comes in flax is the grain tpat gets the preference. At Kamiah the warehouse men report that the rush ia about over and receipts are felling off this «seek. The Vollmer Clearwater Co. have in store 18,900 bush el* of flax, 13,300 bushels of oats and 6000 bushels of wheat. The Kettenbach Company Limited has 33,000 bushels of flax, 18,000 bushels of oats and 3000 bushels of wheat. The wheat movement is light and the sales are lighter. Of the 700400 bushels of wheat in the Clear water country it is estimated that fully 50 per cent yet remains unsold. If prices do not change materially for the better the crop will be fed tu stock and marketed in that way.

Because Mary Knudson Saw Hers Vanish She Wants $ 10 , 000 . Miss Mary Knudson of Moscow, Idaho, says that she arrayed herself in bridal robes and waited in vain for Rev. John W. Spencer to come and marry her. Her parents had prepared a wedding supper but their labor was in vain, Spencer's father is accused of coming be tween the loving hearts. Today Miss Knudson filed a suit for $10,100 for breach of promise. Ten thousand dollars is for injury to feelings and $100 for bridal costumes and supper. Miss Knud son is the daughter of a well known Genesee farmer. Rev. Spencer is an itinerant preachet, son of a wealthy farm er. Miss Kuudson says they became en gaged in the early spring. After urging the girl to an early marriage, Miss Knud son is said to have agreed to October 30 as the date. Later it was changed to October 10, at which time the bride and supper were waiting. Spencer's father ia said to have induced the young preacher to give up the girl—Associated Press Report. Romeo and Juliet. This lovely Shakesperian play abounds in deep wooing and the deepest shades of romance. Rut it is laid in the silent by the wooing of Bill Allen, to whom Miss Lottie Springston played Juliet. Papa Springston did not hate Bill Allen but vehemently insisted that he did not want Bill to put his feet under his dining table as a son-in-law. Lotta thought dif ferently about Bill, and even if papa did not care for Bill to place his feet under hi# table, that Bill could buy a table' of his own. Then came a site ice that was awful. Bill was looked upon as a van quished suitor and Lottie looked an ideal broken hearted girl, remaining quietly at her home. Then the splendor of the Lewiston fair burst forth in all its glory the big balloon with its human freight, bursting bombs that shook the eternal hills bordering the north shore of the placid Clearwater, and the thrilling parachute leap from the clouds—all ap pealed to the fair Lottie, aud she came, clad not in a Parisian bridal trousseau, but in handsome every day, up-to-date garment. Bill, too, wanted some of the pleasure of the fair to compensate for the the long hours of toil in summer sun upon s reservation farm. Well, they saw Auditor Stookey and made a hot foot for a preacher and Lotta Springston became Mrs. Bill Allen. Mr. Springston was at home all thia time anxiously waiting to bear the pit-a-pat of Lotta's feet upon the well worn path across his broad seres, to the parental domicide. But no such pit a-pat fell upon his listening ears. He then mounted the swiftest steed he pos sessed end once in the city summoned help to find bis daughter. But he searched in vain. Some day they'll wander back again and receive the parental bleaeing. Grand Matter Chase. There will be an interesting meeting of the Masonic bodies this evening.

LATE NEWS Of Events Occurring in Different Sections of the Country CZOLGOSZ SENDS FOR A PRIEST Murder Suipects Arretted — Gov. Hunt Loses His Nerve—Schley To Talk Before Naval Inquiry, Auburn, N. Y., Oct 22.—Leon Czol gosz, the assassin ol President McKinley, who is awaiting electrocution in the prison here during the wee't commencing Monday, fully realizing that his death is now a question of a few days, has asked for spiritual consolation, and this after noon received a visit from Rev. T. S. Szardinski, a Polish priest of the Roman Catholic Church. Czolgosz' request for a priest of his own nationality was made to the warden this morning. The interview between priest and pris oner proved very unsatisfactory to both. It took place in the condemned man's cell, and the conversation was carried on in Polish. During the inlet view Czolgosz said that he had been baptized in the Roman Catholic faith in the Polish church in Detroit. He had abandoned the church early in life, and had lost all faith in its teachings. Father Szardinski urged him to renounce his belief in anarchism and return to the faith of his earlier days. Czolgosz declared his inability to do so and he was informed that unless he could the consolation of the church would be denied him. The priest urged the con demned man to consider the matter care fully and told him that if at any time he decided to re-embrace the faith he would return from his home in Rochester and stay with him until the end. Father Szardinski, before taking his departure, left with Czolgosz some Catholic litera ture printed in Polish.
