The roads were in excellent condition and she made g*ood time. At Illo and Winchester questions of division of districts are pending and this trip was made for the purpose of personal investi gation. The Superintendent states that she will not favor division when it is possible to avoid it as these proceedings reduce the money in district treasurers, aud prevent the district from having even the required number of months of school. She favors consolidation along the lines of the bill to that effect intro luced in the legislature last winter. Miss Mary L. Scott, state superintendent, also favored that step, but illness pre vented her going liefore the house of representatives when the bill was up for consideration and the proposition was defeated.

He met two Nez "erce bucks mounted upon one horse coming to Lewiston. The Indians drew a re volver and compelled the little fellow to dismount and give up his horse. The boy went to a farm house near by and secured the aid of two young men who started in pursuit of the young braves after arming tnemselves with revolvers. LTpon noticing they were being folio ved the Indians turned the horse loose aud the frighteued boy went his way re joicing. Stage Service Between Stites and Grangeville.

Returning, the stage leaves Grangeville at 1 o'clock, ariiving in Si tes in good time for the morning train down the road. The passenger service is much improved by the change. With these arrangements passengers from Lewiston will not be compelled to stay over night in Stites. Lab of Engine Torn Off.

An Elk Lodge for Lewiston. All resident memliers of the order of Elks iu I.ewiston and Clarkston are re quested to meet at S o'clock at the Ninneman hardware store iu this city. The object of the meeting is to take pre liminary steps for the organization of an NEWS FROM COURT HOUSE Two Are Admitted to Practice in the District Court—The Watson Case Grows Compli cated -Steen-Craig Case Tried. Taslor B. W'est and Charles Peterson carne down from Moscow last week and were admitted to practice before the dis trict court by Judge Steele. They took the examination some days ago at Mos cow. Mr. Peterson will practice with County Attorney Stilleuger of Latah county succeeding Attorney Wolfe. Last Thursday 'aines Watson was ar rested on complaint of Mrs. Ned Bartlett charged with stealing a horse. Watson is now in jail awaiting trial. His defense will be that he pu -chased the horse of Jesse Little and a warrant issued Friday for Little. The warrant was served Saturday by Deputy Foresmau aud Little was brought to town Sunday morning. He went before Judge Reese and gave bond in the sutn of $500. Little is a boy of 17 and his parents are well known people residing on Cottonwood creek. Though under arrest it is not likely there any serious charge will be sustained against the boy who bears an excellent reputation. I.ATKR, James Watson and Jesse Little, arrested last week for stealing a borse from Mrs. Ned Bartlett, had a preliminary trial today before Judge Reese and both were discharged. They had no atttorney but stated their case to the court and were cleared on the statement. It appears that Little took up the horse as an estray and that Watson purchased him by pay ing the feed bill. Both parties acted in good faith and Judge Reese decides that they are without criminal intent iu the matter. Yesterday afternoon the case of Miss Mae Steen vs. A. D. Craig was called up in the probate court at 1 o'clock and tried before a jury. This is a case where the plaintiff al leges that she filed on 160 acres of land near the mouth of camp creek on Snake liver three years ago and in May of this year the same was forcibly entered and detained by the defendant Archie Craig.

At 9 o'clock last night the jury re turned a verdict in favor of Miss Steen. Base Ball Sunday Afternoon.
