IDAHO LEFT Congressman Glenn Draws a Short Straw in the Committee Lists. VERY SCANT RECOGNITION Subordinate Position on Two Un-important Committees- Mines and Mining and Elections. Idaho's representative in the* lower house of Congress evidenty did not make a very marked impression upon Speaker Henderson as his recognition on the com mittee indicates. Congressman Glenn of Idaho is mentioned but twice in the make up of over 50 committees in con gress and then as the minority member of an unimportrnt committee. The chances are that Idaho will not cut a yery wide swath in national affairs in the house in this congress. On the com mittee of mines and mining Congress man Glenn is at least in touch with one representative interest in his state bnt as the minority member he will have little or no influence in shaping legislation. Just at present the irrigation committee and the rivers and harbora committee are of the most immediate benefit to Ida ho. As the President's message indicates the administration ia greatly in favor of irrigation and if Idaho had a strong ad ministration man in congress during this session his place would have been undoubtedly upon this committee and he could have made a strong showing for Idaho. The rivers and harbors committee has special interest thia session for the whole Columbia basin. Their deliberations will carry the hopes ot all persona and sections who favor the open river proposi tion, and if recognition is given to the project the rivers and harbors bill will carry the initial appropriations for open-, ing the riyer at the Dalles. It is favor able to the project that the person nel of this committee has suffered very little change this session. Nearly all the members of the present committee are the ones who visited Lewiston and the northwest last July and have a nersonal knowledge of the need* of the Columbia basin. Burton of Ohio it again the chair man and Reevea of Illinois, Bishop of Michigan, Acbeson of Pennsylvania, Alexander of New York, Tongue of Ore gon Lawrence of Maaaachuaetta, David son of Wisconsin, McCulloch of Arkansas and Ball of Texas, aU-of whom were here last July hold their placet and haye a personal understanding of the situation and the open river question will receive careful consideration at their hands. a , Winter Rsce Meeting. Everything is running smoothly for success at the Wintez Race meeting. Secretary Mount is receiving daily no tices from outside parties who con template being present with horses at the meeting. There are more than 35 horses now in training at the track add from advices received Secretary Mount ia confident that there will be as many more present to run for the parses.

Libby took the first steps thia week in closing the deal for the jmrehaae of the Lewiston Electric Light plant. An option was secured some months ago and Mr. Libby, for the company, made a preliminary payment on the purchase price this week. The plant will be operated, when turned over, in conuectiou with the company's Vine land ditch. The present ditch flume on Asotin creek can Ire used to secure an additional too feet in fall and a far greater gain of efficient power with no more use of wate. . Mr. Libby has given to the press a stateuient that the company contemplates extensive improvements 111 the plant when the final transfer is made which will put it in shape to give efficient ser vice to the present consumers ami supply all the needs of the city. This is only a preliminary step to the establishment of a great power plant on the Grande Ronde which will supply Asotin, Clarkston and Lewiston with light and power for all present and future needs, and opens up the possibilities of large tnamifacturing interests in the Lewiston Valley. PHYSICIAN SHY HIS MONEY Decision in Idaho Affecting Counties and Towns. Boise, Idaho, Dec. 10. —The supreme court today hauded down an opinion of much importance to all counties and towns in the state, the doctrine being laid down that no member of a hoard of commissioners or city councilman can contract au obligation binding upon the county or city. The case is that of II. A. Castle vs. Bannock county. Castle, a doctor, was county physician on a salary. When smallpox broke out in Pocatello and the patients were were put in a pesthouse. Frank M. Watson, chairman of the hoard and the county's purchasing agent, told Dr. Castle to care for the patients and the county would pay him. Castle did so and put in a bil' for $330.6c. All but |6o.6o was disallowed. He appealed to the district court, .which rendered judg ment against the county. On appeal to the supreme court that judgment is re versed. The opinion, after reciting the facts of the case and referring to nqmerous an thorities says: "It will be observed by reading the authorities cited that the board of county commissioners or the city council of a city now are empowered to do certain thibgs, but nowhere do we find in the citations that an individual member of the board of commissioners or a member of a city council can make contract and thereby create an .obligation binding upon the county or oitv-'' Free Shoot on Christmas.

Dave Williams made a very funny Lazarus and waa better than ever in the role. He kept the audience in a lively pitch throughout the performance.

SURVEYORS NOW AT WORK The New Blackfoot — Mackay Branch Will Be Extended down the River. Railroad building for Idaho is now a prominent feature of news in the press dispatches, and there seems a well de fined idea that something will be done in the coming season to open up the interior of the state. The Northern Pacific plans the Missoula cut-off are well known the public, but a new feature of the railroad situation appears in a recent dis patch from Salt Lake which gives out the news that the Short Line is planing to ex tend the Blackfoot-Mackay line down the Salm -n to join the O.R.& N. at Lewiston. A party of Oregon Short Line sur veyors," says the Herald, "has started upou the work of surveying an extension of the new branch running from Black foot to Mackay. The ultimate objective point of the Short Line in this extension neither Challis,. Salmon City nor Thunder Mountain. If a feasible route can be found the road will be built through to Lewiston, Idaho on the east ern border of the state, and there it will connect with a proposed branch of the Oregon Railroad & Navigation coni pany." The Harriman system has in con templation a plan involving the expend iture of millions of dollars and the con struction of a line with feeders, transvers ing the entire central part of Idaho and opening up probably the richest mineral, agricultural and timber section in the west that is at present without a railroad. The first objective point will be Thunder Mountain which will be reached by a spur from the main line up the Middle fork of Salmon. Beyond Thun der Mountain the route is vague. An ! I ; as 1 ! S a j I j ! all j : j I 26 I, 3 attempt will be made to cross the mount ains to the main Salmon if not the Mid dle fork will be followed to the main stream, and the Salmon followed to tbe Snake and that stream takeu down to Lewiston. Another route which is said to be feas ible is to leave the course of the Salmon near the Buffalo Hump mountains, strik ing northward across the range at its most approachable point, probably near American creek, and following that stream and the South fork of the Clear water to Mt. Idaho. From Mt. Idaho to Lewiston and thence to Grange City Junction, Oregon, on the Oregon Rail road & Navigation company, that road has a survey made daring the Buffalo Hump excitement. This survey coaid be followed, or a divergence could be made from Lewiston north to Moscow, the latter route, if fonnd practicable, giv ing a more direct line to Spokane. In either event, connection would be made with the O. R. & N. and the Northern Pacific. Will Build a Cold Storage. White Bros, are making active pre pa ratiotas to extend their wholesale fruit shipments for next season. They are just closing up their first seasons busi ness having «hipped to eastern points ia8 carloads of fruit from Snake river and Palouae points. The last carload of prunes from the Moscow drier was shipped Tuesday and a carload or two o apples from Kendrick will close the sea son's business. Will White is now at St. Paul looking after lines of trade for next years ship ment. He will visit Duluth and other eastern shipping pointa. A lease has been secured on the Bolton .building end the office and shipping rooms have been transferred then this week. A cold storage building will l>e erected on land leased from the Northern Pacific near the depot and a building will be begun as soon as arrangements are perfected. Ed White, who was seen concerning the plans of the matter, said: "We will build a cold storage here before spring and an other in Moscow as soon as the season opens. Our business has lieen satisfactory this year anil we expect to extend it in all lilies in the coming season. V\ itb cold storage equipment we can handle with profit to the grower much of the fruit and vegetable products that aie now wasted because of over supply in tlie local markets.''
