THE NORMAL TRUSTEES MEET Hfltl First Session this Morning—Visiting the Departments Today—Probable Work of the Session The normal school board held its reg ular meeting at the office ol the secretary, F. VV. Kettenbach, at io o'clock this morning. This was the first meeting of the new board and reorganization was in order but owing to the fact that one of the members and probably two would uot reach til; city till the boat arrived to night a temporary organization was ef fected for the transaction of routine busi ness, aud an adjournment v as taken till 7 o'clock tonight. Those present are .L. C. Dille of Cald well, F W. Keltenbach, Dr. C. vV. Schaff, E. P. Giboney and C. A. Foresman, Lew iston. The absent members are Rev. Reiss Baker of Boise and the state school superintendent, Miss Mae L. Scott, both oi whom are expected to arrive in the city on the boat this afternoon. The appropriation secured for the nor mal for the ensuing two years is the most liberal ever given the institution It will enable the trustees to extend the course of study and equip the departments in a manner not possible under -the former appropriations. The total amount se cured is $30,000 for the two years. The estimates as presented to the legislative committee provide for a faculty of nine teachers, an increase of two members over the present faculty, with an increase of wages, the principal to receive $400 per year more than at present and the department teachers each $300 more. For equipment the training department gets $500, the physical labratories $950, and for library books and periodicals $700, with an additional $300 for charts, maps and globes. The board will probably take up the question of the course of study next year. The course of study will have to be ex tended to meet the demands of the growth of the institution. Two new de parts will be added probably mathe matics and music and drawing. With the extension of the course will come the shifting of teachers, and though the regulations provide for the regular elec tion of teachers nt the meeting in June, there is a decided tendency to take it up at tins lime and m ike complete arrange ment* for the faculty n>r next year. Death uf Grandma Williams. Grandma Williams passed peacefully away at Iter home in this'city at about 1:30 o'clock ibis morning. A short time ago she suffered an a tack of the giippe, but had so far recovered as to be thought out o danger, when a rela -se occurred resulting in her death. She was Doru in 1820, ami shortly removed to, Putnam county, Mo., where she grew to woman hood and became the wife of Thomas Sidwell. Two children were boru unto them who died tu childhood, the 'hus band departing this life soon after. In 1858 she was united in marriage with Benjamin Williams who surviv. s her, and with whom she crossed the plains in the early 70's settling at Dayton, Wash., where they resided unt 1 1888, when-they removed to Juliaetta, Idaho, and five years later came to Lewiston where they have since lesided. Grandma, as she was familiarly known, became a devout Christian early in life and was a member of the M. E. church of this city. She was beloved by all who knew her for her amiable disposition and kindly nature, which won for her a host of friends wherever she has resided. Four sons were born to the deceased, only one of which survives her, Tip, who is a well known resident of this city. Funeral ser vices will be held to morrow afternoon from the M. E. church and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery on the hilt. Free Delivery June I. On Saturday G. W. Thompson received a telegram from Senator Hey burn re garding the inauguration of the free de livery service soon to be established here. Following is the telegram: ' Order es tablishing city delivery service at Lewis ton after Jpne t issued yesterday, the office to have two carriers aud one sub stitute." This is the action resultant from the recent report of Inspector Mul lins aud fixes the service for Lewiston to begin on that date. Inspector Mullins when lie was here said that when action was taken on his report Jte would return to take up the questipn of examinations for carriers and we may expect next to hear of some action in that line. Inspector Mullins thought that sixty days would he taken in the department before he would hear from his report but the activity of Senator Heyburn bas hastened the decision of the department. Survey for the Treat way. Kngiueer Edsou Briggs left today to make the euruey of the tramway from Agatha to Summit. The company formed to put in the new .tramway are ready to make the purchase of machinery and equipment and Mr. Briggs has gone to make the survey of the route. CITY OF HOMES AND FLOWERS That is what Lewiston Can Be —The Cost ii Time end Money Will Be hardly Felt Clean up Now—Do Your Pert. Clean up! The streets, alleys, hack yards and vacant lots in this city are not what they should be, in view of the fact that scores of prospective homeseekers are daily arriving. A general cleanup should be made, not alone from a sani tary point of view, but for the impression iT would leave upon strangers. It would also add to the value of every home the city. The character of our soil and climate is such that every home should 1 wilderness of flowers and foliage. But this is not the fact today. There are many places where the ground is as bare as a well used rojtdway and '.he few trees to be seen show great neglect on the part of the owners. In the old days there was some excuse for this because sufficient water could not be hail to maintain lawns, or keep alive plauts aud foliage. Now there is an abundance of water. The home owners in city should take advantage of the changed conditions and begin at once the work of beautifying their premises. One hour a day will serve to keep the grounds about the ordinary home in splendid condition. The cost for water is so small when com pared with the comfort and beauty given in return as to be insignificant. Itt fact, it would add a goodly sum to the sale of any piece of property. It would also serve to advertise the city, giving visitors something to contrast with other locali ties where less favorable conditions exist. Flow rs and trees and green grass about the home mean more comfort ill the heat of summer—make home more inviting to the members of the family and a thing of beauty in the eyes of all who pass by. It is to tie regretted that the old Boston mill ditch was closed up. The water from that could, at a small expense, have been turned into the gutters on either side of Main street and thence run to other streets and a steady flow of pure water carried through the entire city. This would have served the double pur pose of cleaning the gutters ami keep ing the atmosphere clear and moist lit the summer season, making the drain upon the wati r system for irrigation pur poses considerably less. By all means let us have more well kept lawns in Lewiston, more flowers and foliage and more of all that goes to make a city beautiful and its citizens proud of its beauty. The time to begin is now—not next year. All the decaying vegetation, -dead animals and fowls, manure piles and litter that bave acciimilated during the winter should be removed. Broken fences should he repaired, trees should be cleared of all «lead branches and cesa pools placed in condition for the sum mer. These are but few of the things needful to give the city the reputation of being the cleanest, most modern and up to-date place in the northwest. Contractor James Broad Here. Contractor Broad of Spokane arrived in the city Sunday afternoon, to look over the city. Mr. Broad is one of the best known contractors on municipal works in the west. His headquarters are in Spokane. In speaking of conditions in Spokane Mr. Broad said, "I believe things will look better in a few weeks in our city. There is a teeling ofdisconteut among workers, and those contemplating big work are a little timid about closing contracts. I think the union men there will not order a general strike, and will settle the trouble pending in the sensible way they have always done. When the cloud clears I look for a good season." "Are you intending to operate in Lew iston?" he was asked. "I cannot say. I am here to look over your city. I am surprised beyond mens ure at the showing made. Nice place for winter homes. I believe Lewiston and Spokane will he the big cities of the In land Empire. "I have several jobs now in Spokane and elsewhere and am always prepared to take new work. I have just been no tified that I received the contract to build the large concrete cribs at the city water works in Spokane. The rapid growth of the city makes the extension of the plant imperative and unless my Judgment is very bad Lewistou will have to run in order to keep its plant ahead of its growth, just as we do up there." Mr. Broad will remain several days aud perhaps figure on the local improvements to be made here. Postmaster at A^tk. Word is received that Ed Morris, the present postmaster at Myrtle, is soon to resign and that in anticipation of the fact, two aspirants have entered the race and are circulating petitions at • a lively rate over the Myrtle country. Mrs. W. W. Glasby and Thomas Mein tire are the contestants for the place. it a WORK OF DISTRICT COURT The Vision Will Last until Late in April— No Important Cases Arc Called to Date— Several Prisoners Arraigned to Plead. Judge Steele opened the March term of the district court yesterday morning The docket is the largest in several years, so far as civil cases are concerto d; «hile the criminal calendar is about the ave rage of former terms. There were number of new cases added to the docket. On call of the criminal calendar the fol lowing defendants were arraigned: S11 sie Duffy, the colored woman who is charged with relieving a white caller named Norris of $10:10, entered a plea of not guilty \V. W. McFall, charged with the lar ceny of a horse from A. T. Bowman, pleaded uot guilty. George Guyatt, charged with assault with intgpt to kill, took more time which to enter a plea. This is the result of a gun play at the Pacific lodging house on east Main street. Dave Harness, charged with rape, also concluded he was not ready to make known his desires to the court. Max Veidl did not know just what he wanted to tell his honor concerning the charge of grand larceny opposite his name, but will make up his mind in day or two. On the criminal calendar the cases of Knapp, Burrell & Co., vs. A. E. and J. A Miller, on prottiisory note; and the First National Hank of Portage, Wis., vs, Citas. N. Millet were dismissed. The case of Thiessett vs. Fordyce was called and judgment rendered against defendant by consent. The Northmen Some sturdy men came down from the north to participate in the business of the seventh legislature, and their work will long be remembered. Except as to the Clearwater boom bill, they carried through every measure they undertook, aud if it had not been for the trouble among themselves they would have car. ried that through, notwithstanding its questionable merit. Their first pioposi tion was to elect a northman to the United Slates senate, and they did it with neatness and di .patch. They wanted supreme court building and library, they got it. They pulled for increased appropriations for the university aqd normal school and got them. I11 fact, they forged right through 10 a successful consummation of all tbeir desires, until it came to monopolizing the best limber lands of the slate, via the hoom bill, then they disagreed and failed. — Caldwell Tribune ' First Sale of Hcinhip Land«. The first sale of Indian heirship lands will occur March 30, when bids for the pit chase of a fine So acre tract north of the Rimrock, near Genesee, will be opened by acting Indian Agent McArthur. On April 15 four more heirship tracts will besold. Two of these are north of the Rimrock and the others are in the Fletcher ueighborbood, on Nezperce prairie. After the latter date sales will be occurring every two or three weeks or so. Former Indian Agent C. T. Stran ahan called the attention of intending bidders to th : fact that purchasers would be compelled to pay the expense of pro bating the-e estates before clear titles to these lands can be obtained. The pro hatiug of these estates, he said, averages a cost of $50 to $75 each. Mr. Stranahan said that many of the Indians who own heirship lands have re fused to talk of selling their lauds until af'.er the estates have lteen probated, be lieving that after a clear title can be given tlie lauds will sell for more than before.—Culdesac Register.

Quite a number of our citizens attend «he session of ilte district court at Lewis ton next week. Victory for the Miners. The findings and recommendations of the anthracite coal strike commission seetn to show that President Baer has not been sustained in bis origiual contention that theie was nothing to arbitrate. While the report of the commission has uot been published, enough of ils con tents has been ma c public to show that the commission is unanimously of opinion that the miners were warranted in making the most if tin ir demands from the Oj erators. The miners claimed that they should have more pay and be compelled to work fewer hours; that the system of weighing was unfair to the employes, aud that the general scheme of determining a day's work favored the operator and reduced the renumeration to which the miner was fairly entitled. These claims have been practically sustained by the com mission. A to per cent, increase in wages is allowed, a day's work is fixed at eight hours, and relief is granted in the matter of weighing and dockage. The miners' union is indirectly recog nized and there is rebuke for the boycott, and while on these points the miners do not gain all that they may have desired, the finds altogether are a notable victory for the men under Mitchell.—Spokes man-Review.
