The Lewiston Teller.
C. A. Foresman, Publisher. TELEPHONE 26 dnbscription to weekly....... .$1.50« year Six month*....................... ..........- 75 Three months................... Entered at the Lewiston Mcond class mail matter. Postoffice »s The Need of the Hour. The Teller is in receipt of a let ter from A J Palmer, Eldorado, Kas , in which several questions are asked. The Teller has no hesitaucy in saying it is not pre pared to answer some of the in quiries, and they are cheerfully passed along to some one kindly disposed who will supply the gen tleman with the desired informa tion. Eodorado, Kansas, Sept. 33 , 1903 .— Editor Teller, Lewiston, Idaho —Dear Sir: I learned by accident that a new railroad was being built in some valley near your place. I understand it is in Clearwater Valley. What I want to know is at what price such land as lies along such railroad can be purchased per acre ? Also what kind of crops grow without Irrigation in that locality, fru ts, etc Also bow many bushels per acre of grain? Does alfalfa succeed without irrigation, and bow well ? /How deep to water in the valley ? Also kind of soil ? Is the valley a sub-irrigation one ? A. J. Pai.mkr. What information cou'd be sup plied has been forwarded to Mr. Palmer. It is a matter of regtet to The Teller that it cannot give the name of the railroad now build ing in the Clearwater valley. Mr. Palmer was told, however, that we have several railroads on paper, and hope to have a few on wheels very soon. The serious side of this com munication will present itself to every resident having at heart the welfare of the city and the Clear water country. The fact is evident that Lewiston has arrived. The news has penetrated drouth stricken and calamity ridden Kan sas. Numeious questions asked by Mr. Palmer, and asked by every man writing for information, indicate an uttei lack of knowl edge as to the topography of this section, its resources as varied as the industry of man to coax the harvest from whatever seed of fruit or grain hik inclination prompts him (o plant. Tons of advertising matter are beiug sent hr adcast by enterprising sections < f California Oklahoma and other states which evince a desire to in'erest home seeker and investors. Pamphlet that teil of the wonderfu possibilities of the different parts of the country areconstan ly being sent out by commercial clubs, real estate men and boards of trade The resources of the country are set iortb and ira .nigra! ton invited O.» the back of Mr. Palmer's letter Is a printid statement of the r< sources of Butlei county, giving a description of the county, its soil streams, population, number of mile' of railroad, number ol school buildings, number of pupils aud teachers, number of banks in the County with amount of deposits '$70 for each man, woman and child," number of churches, figures for number of cattle, horses, hogs, sheep, etc., in the couiuy, vdue of p »ultry, eggs, milk, butter, honey etc., sold per year, nu mirer oi bear log fruit trees and kinds, etc.,<etc, More useful and desirable informa tion is contained on this one page of paper than could be told in two houys if one were to undertake to write the facts to an inquirer. Yet tiis information goes to every man receiving a letter from Mr. Palmer, without the loss of a moment's time to any one. This is mentiot ed because they things in Kansas. The s aie »y have been hard but by drouth, isshoppers and politicians, bat lr. Palmer writes you a letter i'll know more about Butler int*, Kansas, iu ten minutes than y$u can learn of the resources aud Ivantages of Lewiston and Nez Perce county from all the printed infttfer obtainable. People of other parts of Kansas, so tue in Nebraska, Iowa and Illi ngs and other states of the middle west are looking for homes and favorabte climatic conditions. cific be ing They must be interested in Niz Perce county in geueral andLewis ton in particular. The >uceess of the Waha irriga tion project is assnred, and the tract southeast of Lewiston will provide homts for hundreds o* peo ple, on five and ten acre irrigated tracts. People this section and hundreds of dollars each rnqn'h will he added to the comm rcial int« rests of Lewiston. You know that wit! in five years that sectiNn will be dotted with fruit farms and small ranches as Clarkston is today. But the renter of Kansas, Iowa and Illinois doesn't know it, and he must be told. Clarkston has been built by judicious advertising —a systematic presentation to the home seeker of the advantages of a residence there. The soil on this side of the river is c'aimed by some to be better even than on the Washington side, holding moisture better. Experience has attested that the best fruit in the world will grow here under irrigation. Now that our wa er supp' y practically assured the time seems opportune for a systematic adver tiseiuent of the wonderful resources and ad va tag« s of adjacent land and the possibilities of Lewiston as a commercial center. Alkali and Irrigation "The constant watering of the soil from the surface will eventual fill the land so full of alkali as render it unfit for fanning, counteract this alkali the set. niis's will have to find some preparation not yet dis-covered." The above statement was made by one who opposes irrigati n be cause of the alkali deposits found in arid lands. Bailey on "Irrigation and Drain age" says that everywhere in the s«»il the soil grains are being broken down and destroyed by both physical aud chemical means and unless the rains are sufficiently heavy to carry the ëver-iorming dissolved salts away they will be brought to the surface. Any tract oi land properly as properly drained does not contain alkali Where the alkali deposit! were heavy a sufficient amount of na tural or artificial water bas suc cessfully changed the character of the soil. - Fertilization and proper drainage have changed the char apter of alkali soil in a short time to a high state of productiveness Lynching may be a crime AM the I« anted men have recently said so. It is set led, th.ui, that lynch ing is a crime. However, if any dissatisfaction has been voiced con cerniug the late incident just over the way, 'he grounds of complaint have not been mentioned Ci:cum stances sometimes alter cases we.l as occasion a change of climate Fair weather during fair week will make the Lewiston fair a fair thing to look upon. You can go farther and fire worse. Come to the fair for all of the fair will he at the fair. If you don't come, you won't be missed. Everybody else will l»e there. This time next year people hav tng business at the court bouse may lie able to transact the same without taking along a camping outfit or using a long distance phone. A legal hanging in Kentucky sounds like a day dream, but if the court of appeals does not Interfere Curtis Jett will know how it feels. Good living at five cents per day will strike the proud pareat of a numerous family in exactly the right spot. If you want to telephone to Asotin, walk. It's quicker. Oct. i, 1904: Have a street car ride with Lewiston. That Snake River Railroad Carlos Gillespie, formerly of this city, now in the employ of the Northern Pa cific railroad, with headquarter* at Spo kane, was in the city Sunday. While somewhat reticent aa to hie businesa in thia section, enough was learned by the Signal representative to be able to slate that Mr. Gillespie is mak ing a reconnaisance of the route of the proposed railroad fiom Huntington to be Lewiston for the Northern Pacific rail way.' He is also estimating the amount of grading that was done by the North western road some years ago, and its probable cost. He states that there hat been 16 or 18 miles of grading work done down the Snake river from Huntington that would require but little work to put in good shape. Mr. Gillespie does not know, or would not state, where the road Is projected other than to Lewiston. While here he a as trying to arrange for teams and wagons, with camping outfits, and it is presumed a surveying corps will be placed in the field shortly. From what can be learned, it is evident that the Northern Pacific is back of the proposed road, and that it is the inten tion of that corporation to begin opera tions in the near future.— Weiser Signal.
