FOUR THOUSAND ACRES SOLD Pries was above Appraised Valua tion in Most Inst. neu —Other Sales for Jan. ^ and 10 . That the state lands of Idaho are recognized as valuable is evidenced by the recent sales by Mr C. B. Steuuen berg of the state land department. On Monday he opened a sale at Moecow. The sale was conducted in the court room and the large room was crowded to its utmost capacity by prospective purchasers. The work began at 10 in the morning and closed at 4 in the evening when 4000 acres were diapoeed of and $65,400 were added to the atate funds. This gave an average valuation per acre of oyer $16. In the lot was a 40 acre tract which brought $1000 and one to acre tract which went for $520. All the lands sold are in Latah county. The Idaho and Nez Perce county lend aa'e will not take place until January 10. There is at present an unprecedented demand for agricultural lands. The state lend de partment is allowed by law to dispose of only 16,000 acres annually and the agent declares be could dispoae of fully as much more at good figures. . One tract of state timber land was die-* posed of for $150,000. The cruisers are still in the field making more valuable selections. Mr. Steunenmtg is the right man in the right place. A Big War Is On. The people along the Clearwater Short line have for some time agitated a better mail sud train service. They are practi cally isolated so far as the railroad ia concerned. They are required to lay over here 34 hours in order to transact any kind of business. They get their mail equally late. The moving spirit In the matter is C. C. Fuller, secretary of the Orofino com mercial dub. One of his communications called forth e letter from J. M. Hanna ford of the Northern Pacific in which that gentleman states the present service is the beat the company can give. He says: "It ia the desire of a majority of the patrons to have it con tinned as at t: Leave Lewiston in the morn ing and arrivT Ut Spokane in tfie after noon before the banka close and leave äpokane in the morning and arrive at Lewiston as early as possible in the after noon." He further says that to make the - change asked for would compel the people to , Wee Stiùs et 5 »5 in the morn ing, and does pot believe the people de sire this inconvenience/ This did not phase the genial Mr. Ful ler and be went buck at Mr. Haaaaford with a strong argument and aim has gone to the general poet office with hie troubles. ■ Mr. Fuller claims the mail can be handled either from Kendrick or Pot' latch over mar tontet, ami mack points at lernt it boon eatlier then the time made to seme points by the railroad. He also nays that people can wot do banking K| Lewiston wi th o u t laying oyer 14 boars u the banks are cloead before the train arrivas and cloned the neat morning when it leaves. He also mys that because of the train service grain iasotd stall pointe at s to 7 cento lost per bswhel than at pointe in the Palowae eooatry, atthoogh the tame rate applies. Just what will result from the agitation being made cannot be foretold. Rail way corporations have n raaton usually for all their actions, and thi> public takes what it gets and pays Amt it Lapwal Noa Dai. moral _ t M tiled suddenly at the Bollinger house from hemorrhage of the lungs. For some time past Mr. Dooley had beçn in poor health and during his short stay in the city seemed to be rapidly gaining strength. He was an unmarried man possessed of a fine farm in the vicinity of Lapwai. The remains were shipped to his brother in Kosedale, Wisconsin, for interment. THE RIVER QUESTION AGAIN Portland Chamber of Commerce Patses Reso lutions in Favor of Open River. Monday at the meeting of the Cham ber of Commerce at Portland the follow ing resolutions were passed and ordered sent to the Washington, Idaho and Ore gon delegations in Congress: First—That the plan for the improve ment of the Dalles-Celilo reach of the Columbia recommended by Capt. Harts, be adopted; that congress set aside the required amount of money in one appro priation; that the work lie lieguti at once and carried on without interruption, to tbe end that steamers may be enabled to run between Portland and Lewiston with out breaking cargo by 1P05 or an earlier date if possible. Second—As a temporary relief the build ing of a portage railway between The Dalles and Celilo and the removal of Mi nor obstructions between Celilo and tbe foot of Priest rapids and between the mouth of the Snake and Lewiston. • Third—Surveys of the Columbia river between the foot of Priest rapids and the British Columbia boundary with a view determining bow much of the same can be made navigable, what plan of im provement ia necessary and feasible and the estimated coat of the same. Fourth—That all the tributaries of the upper Columbia and Snake rivera which can be made navigable shall he opened to navigation. . Railroad Movements. Just at present there is considerable activity in the construction department of the O. R. & N. Tbe cut off that was graded years ago to avoid tbe Alto bill will be built to Wallula. The branch from Dayton to Covello is now being laid. The side line from Riparia to Lewiston ia »till on paper, and is likely to remain there until tbe Snake river bed ia dry enough to be used for a fruit evaporator. _________ The Old Sweet Story. Since the old world began human hearts bave found the acme of hsippi in the bonds of holy wedlock. Tbe story of loving hearts is just as sweet this year last and will be so while time lasts. And in this county, events in this line are coming with great rapidity. John Berry, a well-to-do young farmer resid ing near Mclroae was united in marriage with Miss Louise Autmiller, the lovely daughter of Jacob Autmiller, one of the best known men on the reservation. Then came the marriage of Mr. George Pecuniar and Mist Fannie Stephens, also of Melrose. George Nichols of Nez pc ret aim found it "was not good for man to be alone," and told bis story to pretty Irene Chapman, and last Sunday all lonesome seas vanished. Central Ridge furnished pretty wedding when Miss Daisy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Seuter, became the wife of M. Johnson. This wedding occurred at Nezperce. . Kosteten of the World. On the 18th day of December there will lie a grand .jubilee meeting of the Woodmen of the World held in Lewiston. For this occasion the Knighta of Pythias have surrendered their meeting night in order tbit the Woodmen may have a suitable place to meet. At this time at least 500 visitors will, be in the city to me in members taken into tbe mysteries of this growing fraternal order. The order now baa nearly three-quarters of à million membership, and bas expended in funeral and death benefits a sum gnat than tbe taxable property of Idaho, Latah and NetWares counties Besides it has nearly $1.000,000 of areaervofirad against the rainy day. No other secret order has enjoyed the rapid growth of the Woodmen. from the initiations at the jufaftm meeting there will be a social Mature that will cclipm any thing ever hold In Idaho, and the Woodmen ose the fellows to make 'things lively enough for tho boat of thorn.

CHAIRMAN ANDREWS CALLS A HALT While the Senator Want« the Retrograde Movement to Pro ceed Rapidly. "There's many a slip 'twixt cup and lip." _ Senator Heitfield realizes this now more tban ever before in life. Because of the high position given him by the yoters of the peoples party in the days when it stood alone and made honorable warfare with its political enemies, tbe senator's head became swollen. He grew to believe that he was tbe whole thing, and held the Pops in the hollow of his hand and could play with them as a cat would with a mouse. But he was mis taken. A a few days since he wrote a letter tw Chairman Andrews, urging that gentle man to call a meeting and declare the peoples party dead. Andrews, it appears, is no fool, and knows a living thing from a dead one. Tomorrow Mr. Andrews makes his reply to Senator Heltfield'a proposition tq kill the peoples party, Andrews will my be is no butcher and will give the senator a "solar plexus" jab that will put him out of business for all time to coma This attempt of tbe senator to feed the peoples party into tbe capacious maw of democracy, noted for swallowing any old thing that will give it office, is a col os sal political blunder on his part. It de stroys his only hope of being returned. It destroys fusion. And even if the démocrate should succeed in capturing the legislatgre next November under the infamous gerrymander, Heitfield will have to go just the same. Republicans are the only ones who «rear a smile to-day. The Gty Council. The meeting held Monday night was one strictly of business. The C street sidewalk ordinance was passed. A resolu tion was aim carried notifying tbe Ray mond house to remove Hs porch within 3P days and instructing the city marshal to have the same torn down unless the terms of tly resolution are complied with. Ernest McCullough, as building in spector, notified the council that an ad ART.. In Mfflinery Is the , Keynote Of dition had been made to the Henley building on West Main street contiary to the ordinance. An order was made di recting the marshal to arrest the offenders. The Cash Hardware company received the contract to place a fence around the city park. The petition of Cole Fi field to place au electric clock in front of their place of business was referred to the street committee. The city physician reported two births during November and three deaths. The local military company was granted the use of the council chamber for a meeting place. The next meeting of the council will lie held Dec. to. The Mud. It is all a mistake about the looseness of the soil in the Lewiston valley absorb ing water as fast as it is applied. This is fully demonstrated by the present condi tions of the streets and alleys. For two or three weeks there have been slight showers, and as there is no waterproof roof over the city, the water reached the ground. It did not find its way down and could uot again go up; heute when the water and soil mixed, mud resulted. The depth of the mud varies. In some places it is just right to soil polished shoes and in other places a battle ship could float in safety—notably the streets leading to the depot and Main street to the court house. But we only see mud about two months out of the calendar year and hence, we ap preciate it just as we do the Fourth of July, Thanksgiving or Christmas. It is a brgak in the monotony of tbe long months of sunshine and drought, when a man may atand for seven long hours wi>h a garden bote in bis band and not see a drop of water strike the earth about him. The mud of today insures a pretty lawn next rummer, and a harvest greater than we would care to conjecture. Don't swear at at the mud; it is a blessing in disguise.
