THE FINAL MEETING As we go to press the board of directors of the Canal Users Ass'n are in consultation with Mr. D. C. cWaters, manager of the Kuhns interests, closing up the minor de tails connected with the final ad justment of the claims, the details of which cannot he given until next week. M COWS FOR NORTH SIDE TRACT. A. T. Kakin, Secretary of the North Side Canal Users Association, was in Jerome Monday, and assit nil us that arrangements were nowcon suinated, baring a few minor details, whereby the Association was placed in a position to furnish dairy cows to the farmers on the tract, upon very liberal conditions. Though not heralding the fact from the mountain tops, the officers of the Farmers Association have been working along this line for some time, realizing that the profits to be der iveil from a dairy would go far towards putting the settlers upon a sound financial footing. In their work they have had the hearty co-operation of Mr. D. C. MeWat ters, the manager of the Kuhn in terests here, and the result of their combined labors has now borne fruit, and the money is now at hand for the delivery on the tract, of all the cows that can Is* properly placed. The agitation <>f the dairy ques tion through the columns of the Times, and among our leading far mers, has had much to do with bringing about a speedy and satis factory arrangement «if this kind. Any deserving farmer who may desire dairy cows, and who has pas turage and feed for them, can now obtain them through the Associa tion under very favorable terms, and they can l>e paid for from the pro duct of the dairy, which if operated under a businesslike method, will not only pay for the stock, hut will insure the farmer an additional monthly revenue. If you are in a position to handle any numlier of cows, just drop a line to Mr. A. T. Kakin, at Wen dell, and he will he pleased to ad vise you fully upon the matter. An Assistant. Upon the visit of Don H. Bark to Jerome a few weeks ago, he stat ed that he was then making efforts to seeun* an assistant, that more time could be devoted to giving per sonal assistance to inexperienced irrigators. We are pleased to state that Mr. Bark has succeeded in se curing such an assistant, as the fol lowing letter would indicate: Bois«', Idaho, April 19, 1911. Editor Lincoln Coi ntv Times, Jerome, Idaho: In order to lx* able to give more assistance and instruction in irriga tion to both the old and new irrigators of this stau*, I have been able to secure assistant irrigation engineer and prac tical agriculturist whose t'litire time will he devoted to this work This man is thoroughly competent to assist and ad vise Ixith the old ami the new irrigators concerning the many problems which arts«' in connection with irrigation farm are to lx> had free Dear Sir; .hi ing, and his services of charge by those in med of advice and assistance in regard to the problems which arise on the irrigates! farm, communications should lx? ad«ircssod to Boom 43» Yates Bldg., Boise, Ida.

Very sincerely, i I am, Don H. Bark, Irrigation Engineer, in Charge of hives tigatiom in Idaho. The famous Hailey Bank cases came to an end at Shoshone Mon day evening, the jury finding the defendants guilty afit'r a very short deliberation. _ Shoshone Journal ; "Some very quick anil effective work was «lone by the sher iff's office this week.

They will lx> THE PITTSBURG CONFERENCE. Mr. 11. E. Barrett, President of the ('anal Users Association, returned from the Pittsburg conference will» the Water company, last Friday. Mr. Barrett re ports that the discussion of the North Side aliairs was very satisfactory from the settlers stand|K>int, and that the at titude of Messrs. Kuhn, Purdy and Mc Wallers toward all interests here are the ry best. It develo|»ed that the real reason that . S, Kuhn had in \ c asking for the conference, wash» learn first handed the real condition of affairs on the North W Side, and to come to such an understand ing that the Water company might deal directly with the Association hereafter, us far as possible, instead of with each settler by himself. The people here are to lie congratulated on that conservatism and fairness of mind that has raised their association in a years time from a thing to lie ignored and condemned, to a body into whose hands powers and responsibilities are voluntarily intrusted, which here-to-forc have been jealously guarded by the 'ater company. The Kuhns expressed satisfaction over the D rum of the settlement agreed upon at Boise. Mr. W. S. Kuhn is reported as saying that every dollar that can lie used here in a w ay to advance the inter ests of the tract will lie sent here and that it is not the policy of the Company to begrudge any amount w hen satisfied as to the need of the purpose to which it is to be devoted and as to \\ the g<ssl failli of the interests that ask it. A proposition is on foot to place at tiie command of the Farmers' Associa tion a sum of money for the purpose of aiding the settlers in their development work and the buying of cattle, sheep and hogs to stock the farms. This proposi tion was placed lief ore Mr. Kuhn and Mr. Purdy by 1). C. MacWaters and strongly urged by him anil if the matter conies to a successful issue, we will have Mr, MacWaters to * thank for what will Is- considered the broadest and most far sighted policy ever inaugurated on a Carey Act project. What we need is money and that is just what the Com pany is going to give ns when satisfied as to our gissi faith. It is fully roalirssl that the little old li per cent interest amounts to nothing when this lava ash soil gets down to business, encouraged by an eighteen hour day desert sun and by an inexhaustible supply of water from a never failing irrigation system. With the obtaining from the head otiicial of the project their endorsement of the terms of settlement, the arranging of a basis ii|sui w hich the company can deal directly with the Farmer's Associa tion and the inauguration of the plan by which the Water Company is to finance the development work until it gets on a self-supporting basis, together with the prestige the conference itself gives the Association, we must feel that the work of Mr. Hawley and Mr. Barrett was well done. N 1:10 H BOR MOOD NOTF.S. A movement is on finit for flie inxtitill ing of a Knights of Pythias lodge at Filer. The Twin Falls city council has grant ed a franchise t«> Tacoma capitalists for the installation of a gas plant in that city. Tin- Alfalfa Meal Co. have purchased a large building at Filer and, besides the manufacture of alfalfa meal, they will put in a 25-barrel flour mill. The sheriff of Twin Falls Co. was acci dentally shot last week by his revolver being discharged by dropping his coat on the floor. He was quite seriously in j tired. Shoshone Duel its share of excitement last week. A freight engine on the O. 8. L. blew up near there, instantly kill ing the engineer and jnring the fireman. M.

He is now being held for murder. fatally in The same «lay H j«'alous lover of Boise ''Edison is now the Gooding Leader: name of the new town on the Bliss Rupert cut-off at the crossing of the Gooding-Hagennan electric railroad.

What a Short Drive 'Through the Country Will Demonstrate. If any one has conceived the idea, or, if through ignorance or malicious re ports they have been lead to believe that the North Side tract is anything hut a hive of industry, let them take a day off and relieve their minds of such nonw nsi cal notions. Turn your horses' heads in any direction, and a few miles ride will that the settlers of soon convince you this great tract am far from "dead ones.'' On every hand w ill lie found evidences of activity, and when we consider the bar ren condition of the country two years ago, the sights that now greet the eye seem almost incredible. Acre after acre, as far as the eye can jienetrate has l»een shorn of its mantle of sage brush, and in its stead are now beautiful g teen fields of alfalfa, while thousands of more acres are being prepared for grain and grasses of various kinds. Monday lieing an ideal day we could the invitation to join a resist not party consisting of R. S. Frazer, Win. Zahn and Kohl. Pence, Jr., to take a short drive over a jsirtion of the tract, and with our horses headed southeast, they carried us through the beautiful valley that lays in that direction. It was tiie fanner's "busy day," and through little clouds of dust here and there could Is* discerned men and teams busily preparing their land for what everyone believes will lx- the banner crop thus far on the tract. At the Harrison ranch we found Mrs. H. as busy as a bee, happy and content ed, and proud as a peacock over a large hrood of young chicks that have just »een handled. Geo. Petrie, who lives just beyond, has been lieautifying the grounds sur rounding his new house, by platting it off in park style and setting out 100 pop lars, w hich in a few years w ill make a very picturesque spot. At tiie ''Kasy Picking" ranch of tiie only Torey G und, we found his manager, W. A. Grisham, w ith a broad smile on his face, w Inch w as largely occasioned by the announcement from his wife of the arrival of a young daughter a few days previous. A little further on is one of the most prominent ranches on the tract, that of J. B. Van Wagner of Pittsburg, which is under the management of Geo. White head, and the general surroundings indi cate the able manner in which tiie own er's interests have been looked after. Mr. Van Wagner has probably on«* of the most mod«*rn houses on the tract, it be ing two stories, fitted throughout with hath ami a system of water works, which is supplie«! from a well and reservoir on a hill adjoining. Mr. Whitehead is now busily engag**d putting out 1300 catalpa lives around the pla«v. Still further on, Mr. F. M. Whaley is improving his holdings by the erection of a three room cottage. The Wild Kose ranch of Perry Dodd was tiu* next in line and a glance over the gratinai sloping fields was sufiicient evidence of Perry's good judgment in selecting this ItiO. His affairs on the tract are carefully looked after by A. L. Dewhirst. The Gem ranch of Geo. I>aw shee w as passed, and while we would have en joyed a look at George's white pigs, time would not permit, and on we went over the hills into another lieautiful little val ley settled up by such thrifty farmers as Tom Nenzd, Bert C'oggswell, D. Mc Clellan, W. L. Kyser and others, until a turn in tiie road brought us to the farm of tiie Langer Bros., which we be lieve, without exagération, lays as tine as any 120 acres on the tract, standing at tiie house one can look over every foot of it, witli a perfect slope to the south.
