It of course will be said that tlie Sawtooth grade is the pro perty of the Columbia A Beaver Co., but it may as easily be answered that here tofore for a month requiring only the expenditure of $200or $300 tobe cleared, it has been free from toll, but subjected a large aud important traffic at Vienna to inactivity. . A Severe Accident. At 7 o'clock last evening doctors Hill and Estes were summoned to Murdock's camp, about seven miles north of Boul der station, where Harry Murdock, a well known Wood Riverite, had met with a severe accident in the afternoon. He had been prospecting and was about to return home, when walking on the edge of a snow cliff he slipped and fell a distance of fourteen feet, alighting on ! ],j a shoulder, and sustaining a severe dislocation of the same. He lay there alone three orfour hours, until foundby his comrades, when he was carried to camp. The doctors re-located the in jured part and returned to Ketchum at 9 o'clock this morning. Sbonhi Become a Law. If you want to read the "specials to the Wood River" Air-Chamber, "by tel egraph," look at the Salt Lake Daily Tribune which reaches Hailey a few hours before the Air-Chamber is issued in Hailey, on Air-Chamber street. The copyright bill protecting enterprising newspapers from piracy should pass both houses of Congress at once. Even if tiie protection does not run for more than forty-eight hours, such a law would prevent the Air-Chamber from trying to palm off the specials of nn other paper as its own genuine dispatches.

It$i the Coniuming Topic of the Day. . , The usual "picnic of opoamg forces and opinions as to the most practicable means of celebrating the day of onr Na tional Independence has been initiated | by a brisk caterwauling between the | Ketchum brass band and a number of . citizens upon the instance of the for- ; mers engagement to play in Bellevue ou j that da Y> aud a lively discussion attend- j ed by some few strenuous remarks on t)i0 matter occurred at a meeting held j in the Metropolitan reading room yes- j * ertl ' iy ' 11 httd bt ' tn decided b y the j band to 8 ive tlj e Ketchum eisizens the option of their services, and then aus 1 „ _ „ , I wer the Bellevue committee. The boys j did not give any formal notification of j their position, but a number of leading j citizens were apprized of their relation to the Bellevue parties several days be fore the engagement was made, 'though they did not inform every single Ketch j umite. Nothing was done by onr town people in the matter and the Bellevue ; engagement was accepted, became publicly known a decided con sternation arose among several citizens, which resulted in the meeting referred I After this j ! j to. It is certainly not a loyal spirit that leads any citizen to detract from the in , tereata of his own community, and es j pec ialJy did those members of the band j largely interested in business here rec ! ognize the importance of this fact before any outside engagement was made.

While it is erroneous to suppose 1 that there are any strings to the great majority of the present band, but three ! of the old members remaining, it is evi dent that they all regret that Ketchum people did not decide to celebrate in time to retain their services. But now .. , , , . , they leel duty bound to sustain their I , ... honor in recognizing the pledge made . .. _ ,, ° to the Bellevue people. We hope siu 1 . H cerely that our people will consider the ! . .

To forsake the Belle vue engagement would be to break up the band, and calm reasoning forbids this. Nothing can be gained at this . . , take however, to accept an engage ment from the outside on such short no stage of affairs by agitatiug an animosi ty towards the band It was their mis tiee to the Ketchum people. But this is explained in the statement that ten out of fifteen members in the present band are men that have no particular interests in this place. And the voice of these members is sufficient to carry a vote. a ! The Defective Town Fiat. There will be a town meeting at Tay lor A Hastings'office to-morrow, June 1st, at 2 P. M. for the purpose of rectify inn errnrs mndo in In+filinrr lug (.irors matte ill lot filing according to the defective plats in use in Ketchum. i All citizens interested in property west ; of Main street are requested to be pres- ; ent with the number of their lots and block. The error in several plats of Ketchum, from which filings have been made through Justice Hudson was dis covered several weeks ago by com pari son with original copies in tlie land of fee, and it was found plats drawn up in duplicate here three years ago by Judge Miller were numbered wrong in all the blocks west of Main etreet. The error is a simple one, being simply in case of the fifth lot in each block, which was numbered "8" and vice versa. Parties having located upon these lots may have this slight error in numbers rectified by giving tiie number of lots upon which they filed and changing them to the correct numbers existing upon the true copies. This correction will go through the Hailey land office and on to Wash ington . j the new Keystone office on Thursday I , >uce when about sixtv load« of ' morning,since wfien about sixty loans of roek ' 8and " ml Ume have been deposited 0 n the ground.
