WANTED A SQUARE DEAL The Teller has set out fully the status of the contention over the eon ■tract for county printing that the peo ple may know the exact facts. A great hue and cry ha»» been raised to cloud the minds of the people over the legal ity of the questtoh. hut' this point at best -only applies to the publication of legal notices and 'not 'tô any other printing the county may have to do. Any printing office in the county has the eight to submit bids and to be con sidered in the letting of the contract. Hinder this right The Teller submit- ted a bid thirty per <-«Ait dowei; than the Tribune yet the bid vA»s hot considered and the reason for this is'ndt clearly «defined in the light of (he recent pub- lished decision from /he board's legal advisor the county attorney. Nor Is it clear why (he bid of the Herald being the lowest of the two considered was not Accepted ns to that part of the work «here there could be no question, it Is still more inexplicable to see why the highest bidder in a contest for the letting of work by bids should after the bids are opened and made known be allowed the privilege" of changing his bid to meet the lowest competitive price and given 'h! si'gtiul advantage over,;his opponent! -AIJ' the republican papers of the ■county ask of this republican board is m square degl., Just „wljat every other man is étititled to, ho more' no less. / -- . ; ' t '-'T. -- ' i GOODNIGHTS BILL Representative Goodnight of ^,'ez ffince county, chairman of the ways and means committee has taken a tend in the state depository matters that may conflict with some wqll laid plans. His house bill No. 34 appro priating $7,500 for the construction of » lire and burglar proof vault and the purchase of a burglar proof safe for the use of the state treasurer also pro vides that all funds and state moneys 'is custody of the state treasurer, not «otherwise deposited as may be by law provided, shall be kept in said vault 4 Mul safe and In no other place. A vio lation of this section shall subject the state treasurer, upon conviction to lino nr imprisonment or to both tine and imprisonment. It seems to The Teller Itiht the position taken by Chairman « —oodnlght Is soupd and would go a «rent way toward removing the bank ing influence from politics. It is a .well known fact that both state and -ounty conventions are now dominated by local banking .inst'tutlons in their scramble to handle the state and a-ounty funSs on deposit. It is highly probable that some such measure *as the one introduced would remove the tenks from politics. The state depository bill will be an other bone of contention in the legis lature this winter sure to provoke a long and bitter debate. There are two measures before the legislature, one -said to represent the ideas of the state treasurer places the control of the state funds In the hands of the state treas urer while the other measure knovui as the administration measure places the control largely in the hands of a state board. The administration measure is a senate bill fathered* by the senate fteanee committee, «hile the house bill introduced by Judge Richards repre sents the ideas of the treasurer. The two bills are in direct conflict and will likely lead to a heated debate. at • a to of of of be is Our consul at Tangier says there is an utter lack of respect for the law in Morow-o.

That ought to hold them for a little while, anyway. --v The senate leaders seem tc have agreed upon what they aie not going to do before March 4. Establish a Statt« Park (Long Valley Advocate.) A strong effort should he made to establish a state park at the Payette lakes, where the people of Idaho may come and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery, npd not only the 1 people of Idaho but people from other states also. The state owns most of the timber bordering on these lakes, and it Should not be sold. W<* bei eve the interests of the state can best be served by keep ing this timber, for apart from the' pleasure 't would give to many thou sands of citizens -by preserving the naturul beauty of the lakes, it will serve the purpose of preventing evap oration of the lakes during the summer season and the shrinkage or,drying up of springs that feed the lakes, some thing well worth thinking about 'when the value of the lakes to the arid lands of the Boise and Payette valleys is taken into consideration. The settng apart by the state of Its lands for this purpose would in our humble opinion, be very wise policy, and would be a far better investment by the state that selling the timber for commercial pur poses. The removal of the timber from about the Payette lakes i 11 ruin them forever from a scenic point of view and will detract from their value for reservoir purpose When a railway readies the Payette lakes, this section will become one of Ihe most popular summer resorts In the west, provided its natural beauty is not ruthlessly destroyed. Hun dreds of citizens visit the lakes every year for pleasure and recreation, spending from a few days to a month or so amid the beautiful scenery, and these hundreds will be increased to thousands with easier travel and better accommodations. With the assurance that the »'tractiveness of the place was not going to be spoilt by the removal of the timber, many nice cottages and hotels would be built on the lake shores for the convenience and com fort of visitors. We respectfully suggest that our leg islature take the matter of a state park up before' the state timber Is disposed of. If the proposition for any reason could not be handled by the state, the national government would undoubted ly take hold of It If the state relin quished its timber land, and we would have a park for all time. With the threatened destruction of our Immense bodies of timber, and the rapid settlement of the state, a strong and early effort ought to be made to preserve at least one of our most beau tiful spots while It Is possible to do so.

DO NOT STACK THE_ CARDS Mr. Haynes Advises Timber Men to Follow Roosevelt's Advice January 19, 1905. To The Teller: We are told that It is the galled jade that winces, and from the sharp outcry of the Tribune on Sunday it would seem to the casual .observer that sus taining the timber combine has become their tenderest s«re spot, or in other words it is at this time a critically weak point in the Tribune's lines of general defenses of its strange situa tion. —' The charge that your humble sub scriber has distorted the Tribune's defenses of its ma ter affords sufficient grounds to a reply thereto. I said In my communication that so aroused the Tribune's editorial composure that I did not believe an extension of twenty years as asked would actually hasten the complete and final manufacture of the timber involved and they have ma liciously construed this to mean that I do not believe It will be manufactured at all. whereas my contention was that any activity that might be given by these "Blessed Barons" In exchange for the special legislative privileges sought (which are not limited to the time extension only) would be on a partial and therefore uncertain and incomplete scale as compared with the actual and final results that must come within the time limit of twenty years prescribed by the original contract which should be lpft in full force and effect. 'Then to make their position appear more satisfactory to themselves at least they proceed in justification thereof to juggle the already abused "square deal" slogan of President Roosevelt and endeavor to explain that it must therefore be considered only in the future tense, whereas that char acteristic plain spoken remark of such a* 'deservedly popular servant was meant to mean that square deals had been given in all instances in the per formances of governmental duties par ticularly in the past and at the pres ent. but that in so far as the present is concerned a renewed or additional ef fort will be exerted in the future to actually always have a square deal. As my opponents have wandered from the direct issue for the purpose of applying or of attempting to apply the aforesaid saying. I too in turn will quote from the speech of President Roosevelt at Concord, New Hampshire, wherein he referred to the ardous tasks confronting him in ,the discharge of his important official duties in which he said: "The most that can be expected of a people by a govern-, ment is that it will see that the cards are not stacked." and it appears to me that the Tribune is trying to persuade the state of Idaho to sit into a game with the Weyerhauser Timber syndi cate wherein the latter named did the dealing (square or otherwise) and had the cards safely and securely stacked. The inevitable outcome of which will be that the state will have the pottage and Weyerhauser's are sure to receive the pot the value of w hich I do not pre tend to be capable of calculating. Fur ther let me call your attention to one other item of special privileges that are included with or accompany the time extension application. The legis lature will also be nsked (so Mr. Deary informed the Moscow citizen's committee of inquiry) to amend or al ter the laws of condemnation as now existing. said change to provide for the s>*ndicate (combine trust or whatever you prefer to call it) the privilege of proceeding with their,operations (log ging ruilroadhig milling or otherwise) upon or over the property of others upon their having indemnified the owner thereof (in a manner not specifi cally stated) thereby shifting the in itiative or expense of instituting an action of condemnation and assess ment of damages as required under ex isting law from them to the property ow»ier who in no instance can be so well prepared for such a burden as this combine reported to possess assets of $150.000.000 according to the Tribune their authorized organ, and instead Mr. Individual will have to bring suit and sufTer the attendant delays and appeal or accept whatever these magnami mous millionaires may mete out to him. It is even possible that he will be denied the present privilege of having his damages assessed by a jury of his fellow citizens as his adversaries are already assuming themselves entitled to more latitude within and less respect for law and equal privileges under It than has ever been admitted by any bona fide or former prospective citi zen of our fair state. Let us therefore hope that the cour ageous stand taken by our commend able chief 'executive will be sustained by our lawmakers now or hereafter to be assemble»!. Respectfully, L, L. HÄYNES.
