Official Paper of Ne z Perce County
Happy New Year.
The twentieth century is the
cfentury of promise for Idaho. No
State in the Pacific northwest is
richer in resources, no state is
thore tardy in its development.
Lack of transportation facilities
l^as held Idaho in check. The tide
Of immigration and of capital has
drifted past Idaho on all sides fol
lowing the lines of transportation.
But the return wave has set in tor
Idaho and in the concluding years
f the century her boundless
ealth of natusal resources have
been fairly exploited. She begins
the new century with the fairest
prospects that its opening decades
Will witness a marvelous growth.
Lines of transportation are push
ihg into the interior and the twen
tieth century will not pass many
milestones till at least two great
trunk lines will be constructed
through the interior of the state
Ï id numerous brauches open up
e resources of the rich interior.
Idaho has untold wealth in her
mineral resources. Aside from
this her timber resources would
qive her first rank among the
states of the nation, but to these
ihust be enumerated agricultural
resources equal in area and great
er in variety and quality of
product to those that have made
Î any an eastern state famous,
laho is the land of promise. In
le decade just passed she leads all
the states of the union in growth
ijnd population. This growth is
qnly a promise of what is to be as

loits their values.
News culled from tlie state ex

capital. Meu with axes to grind

>n, something spectacular in the
way of lobby coutrol. The fu sion
ist campaign, in its beginning, was
under control of a lobby ot poli
ticians. They controlled the party
nominations, they have .pledged
the legislature to certain acts, they
nre present at Boise now to see
Hhat those pledges are carried out.
Successful iu this they have
mapped out certain lines of legis
latiou ior the members to follow
during the session. There is now
fair promise that Idaho will open
the century with the majority of
the legislature in control oi the po
litical lobby and unless same in
dependent spirits develop in one or
both bodies of the legislature all

emony in order to avert the shame and scandal and
the loss of his liberty arising therefrom; that no con
tract of marriage was ever entered into by plaintiff with
defendant prior to the said marriage ceremony; that
