For Mine Inspector ROBERT HEI L of Custer. The democrats and their allies have tried to run the courts for partisan and personal advantages in this county. To stay the influ ence of the suits against certain democratic politicians counter charges have been brought against certain republican office holders in this county. Not one of these cases has a suspicion of a founda lion iu lact. The information filed yesterday against County Treas urer Hastings is a fair example of this mock prosecution. Mr. Hust ings is not charged with having occasioned either loss or risk to the county. He is charged with a technical statutory crime. lie is simply charged with having made his deposits of public money with out a formal order to the banker that the deposit he desig naled as a special deposit. Now the courts have held that this order was not necessary. That the law made the deposit special with out formality. There is no doubt in the minds of the best attorneys that the law was fully complied with by Mr. Hastiugs. Ou the other hand there was no loss to the county nor even a risk involved In the traus-.ction. There is no plea to that effect in the complaint. The people will surely fully com prehend the animus of this show of prosecution. Idaho fusion was supposed to lie sife iu the hands of the bosses to whom it was entrusted soon after the Pocatello convention. It now transpires that there was too many bosses and too mauy personal in terests to serve. The fusion is in a fair way to fail and a second ap peal has been made to the national bosses. The fusiouist masses ore patiently waiting for the matter to be adjusted. Party oigaus in the meantime are discussing abstract suhjects to conceal their confusion. The local politicians do not know where they stand. They do not know who will be placed up to be flattered for a time and then be knocked down. Hope is dead in the party. The state is lost to the fusion forces and the burden o( de feat is upon the politicians already. The city council has nevei mas tered the perplexing problem of conflicting rights at the intersec tion of Main and First streets. The street line dots not seem to be definitely established at that point after a year or mo e ot ordets and counter orders. The railroad right-of-way interferes with the proposed pavement and curbing It is evident that positive action is required to straighten things out. That a public body should vacil ate iu matters of public interest is regretable. The question will not regulate Itself.. The matter is up to the council and positive action is demanded. The questiou of special counsel on the part of the city in the Mc Lean damage case was up to the city fathers last night. Just why a city attorney should be paid a salary, and special counsel be en gaged to do the legal work for the city, is one of the mysteries of the public business. If the regu lar attorneyship is a sinecure it should be abolished. If not, let the Incumbent earn his salary or resign his office. Wanted—A political rag baby that the democrats can nurse until somebody invents a policy that can be adopted, at least tempor arily. In NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION. Timber Land Act June 3. 1878.
