Engineer Luck presented a report
based on surveys of three routes he
had made into the Big creek section
for mining companies. His surveys
converged at the Werdennhoff mine,
which is located in abont the center
of the district One, 40 miles in
length, went from the Werdenhoff
mine over Profile pass., through Yel
low Pine basin and, via Johnson
creek, to a connecting point with the
present Thunder Mountain road. This
he called the southern route because
the nearest raiiroad*polnt was Coun
cil and because it would be of little
use to people in the north. The
other survey was frein the Werden hoff
mine to Dixie and thence to Stites—
the northern route, which would
oomodate none from the south.
The third route, and the one which
the commission was nrged to accept
and aid in building a road over, was
from Warren via Elk creek to the
Werdenboff mine, a distance of 35 *4
miles, with three miles of the road,
already built. This route would be
available for people in the north,
south and west and presented no great
difficulties in wagon road construct
ion. There would have to be built
three and a half miles of road above
the Payette lakes so as to straighten
out the state road and place it in the
west side of the river. That, with
some repairing on the state road,
would leave a *lendid route from
the lakes to Warren. The total cost,
including a substantial bridge across
the south fork of the Salmon at Sbaf
er's ranch, would not exceed 830,

Salt Lake, March 30,—Official
calls for special meetings of the stock
holders of the Idaho Sugar company
and the Fremont County Sugar com
pany are published here today. The
meetings are called for May 2, and
are for the purpose of considering the
consolidation of the two companies,
resolutions in favor of which were
adopted by both boards of directors
some time ago. As the board were
practically unanimous in their
action, it is practically settled that
the consolidation will take place The
propositions to be submitted to the
stockholders are that the two com
panies shall be embraced in one new
corporation to be known as "The
Idaho Sugar company," with a cap
ital of 83,000,000. The paid up
capital of the two present institutions
is 81,000,000 each; so that the pres
ent stockholders will receive share for
share in the new stock company.
The other 81,000,000 in stock will be
held in the treasury for future needs,
and will be sold at par from time to
time to the stockholders as the money
is needed for improvements.

We recommend that the preeent

We farther report to the Court and
recommend to the County Commis
sioners that this committee have con
sulted together with regard to the
conduct of official affairs by the
county road supervisors we believe it
would be to the best interests of the
county that a committee be appointed
to thoroughly investigate the records
and bridges and the methods used by
the different road supervisors to keep
same in repair and as to their general
conduct of the offices they fill.
We also request that the County
Commissioners should appoint a com
mittee of three to investigate the con
ditions of the County Poor Farm as
soon as possible.
All of which we most respectfully
submit. Dated March 27th, 1906,

Höre Sales ol Wool.
Frank Johnson reports the purchase
of 200,000 pounds of wool at Payette
and 100,000 pounds at Weiser.
This is the last of the clip west of
Mountain home. The price paid was
16 W cents. Daring the last two
days half a million pounds of wool
have been sold at Mountain home at
an average price of 16 cents. There
are still about a million pounds
there.—Boise Stateman.
We don't blame Mr. Johnson for
wanting to "get a cinch" on all the
wool deals he can, but we do blame
him for attempting to create a wrong
impression. By no means baa the
last clip west of Mountain home been
purchased, for there are yet at least
a half million pounds in Washiugon

Welcome The Cominç Tide.
Weiser people should be ready to
put their best foot forward this year
to secure intending investors who will
visit here this year going to or com

The right kind of reception and hos
pitality shown will work wonders in
making a favorable impression upon
strangers. The opportunities that
capital is looking for are to be found
here. All that is necessary is to
make a proper representation of facte
that can be substantiaed. Half the
truth will suffice.
Judçe Huston is Dead.
Judge Jo. Waldo Huston, who bad
been a central figure iu the affaire of
Idaho for nearly 40 years, died at
bis home in Boise Sunday afternoon,
aged 72 years, the immediate cause of
death being a clot of blood in his
heart. The judge had been in failing
health for many weeks, lingering be
tween life and death and final dis
solution was not unexpected to the
members of his family. Besides the
widow Judson Huston is survived by
