An attempt Is being made by John C

the amount of the bonds for the furnishing
of the new court house, which are to be
submitted to the people In a special elec
tlon soon. The amount that has been
planned -on hitherto Is 8260.000.
The matter came up for a long, discussion
Tuesday afternoon, hut nothing definite
was settled on, either in regard to - the
date of the election or the amount.
John Latenser, the architect was present
and strongly recommended that the com
missioners ' should not ask for less than
1235,000. He stated that even with' that sum
they would -have to stint themselves
greatly. '
It is planned to finally decide the matter
on Friday, which will allow enough time
for the county, bonds to be published and
come up with the' water board bonds on
June ti. ' , ; . . .

assured the management of the hearty sup
port of the eexcutlve department of the
state In the movement Governor Hawley
expects to attend the Land show at that
time and plans will be made for a large
attendanoe of Idaho boosters. The work
will be such as to emphasise all other work
done by the states and so get the best of
returns from all of our publicity. A good
exhibit was made at Omaha in January, but
not such as can be made there In October.
Prof. James W. Jones put up a display
on very short notice and with but little
material to work with which was one of
the unique features of the show. It was
one of Idaho fruit grains and scenery.
As the exhibit came In January the only
fruit available was apples. This time all
of the fin varieties of fruit tor which
Idaho la Justly famous, can be shown and
a much better exhibit of grains than could
be obtained last season is also possible.
All States Should Help.

tries will also come In this time," said
Mr. Paisley yesterday. "Not only can

and stereoptlcon slides. A line conecuon
of these will not only be of use at Omaha,
where I have already made a reservation
of time for these on the program, but they
can he used elswhere and will be ready
for use when the time comes to prepare

Scotch Railroad Will
Invade Canadian Wilds
Glasgow Syndicate to Penetrate Re
gion Rich in Mineral
SPOKANE, Wash., May 24 -Preliminary
survey work will be soon started orl an
other ' railroad across the Dominion of
Canada with branches to Junction points
with reads In the United Statea. according
to prlvato advices received In Spokano to
day from Glasgow, Scotland.
Back of the project Is a Scotch syndicate,
which purposes to build a line from Fort
Churchill, on Hudson bay, to Port Simp
son. B. C, on the Pacific coast, with
branches south to Winnipeg, Man., Reglna,
Bask., Edmonton and Calgary, Alts., and
points In the northern tier of states. One
of the advantages In competing for traffic
between Asia and European ports is that
the main line, approximately 600 miles north,
of the International boundary, would be
from 1,800 to 1,700 miles shorter than either
the Canadian Pacific, the Grand Trunk Pa
cific or the prejected Canadian Northern
road between the two coasts.
The tentative route is through a region
believed to be heavily mineralized, Includ
ing petroleum, oil and asphalt fields and
valuable fur reserves and commercial fish
ing grounds.
M. C. Martin Finds Fortnne In Ap
ples ta White Salmon Country
of Washington. ,
WHITE SALMON. Washington, May 24.
M. C. Martin came to White Salmon in
September, 1904, bad $510 cash; bought ten
acres of heavily timbered land lying one
and one-half miles from the town on which
he made a down payment of $100; tract cost
htm $800; his shack cost him $200; horse and
cultivator lib; cleared and grubbed three
and one-half acres the first winter; bor
rowed $100 from the bank, in the spring,
then got occasional small loans from
friends, always repaying when due and
keeping his credit good.
Today this ten-acre orchard home is
valued at $17,600; It Is perfectly developed
with Us orchard ranging from three to five
years old, and strawberry Cultivation be
tween orchard rows.
This property netted Mr. Martin last year
better than $2,000 from his berries and the
few bearing trees in the older part of the
orchard. Vigorous pruning and thinning.
with close attention to minute details,
proper cultivation and Intelligent spray
ing haa made his property one of the show
places of the White Salmon valley, and
goes to show what can be done by a per
son who had it all to learn and handi
capped by not having too much capital.
Martin exhibited at the last National Ap
ple show In Spokane his Winter Banana
apples and received second prise. Not be
ing familiar with the commercial require
ments, he exhibited too large a size.
The Winter Banana Mr. Martin Is pro
ducing Is probably the most perfect line of
this beautiful variety yet produced; its
markings are very pronounced and its
shape more elongated than others.

eramrat Officials Attempt at
Improvementa Falls,
Arthur Huntington of Cedar Rsplds, la.,
skilled horticulturist, In company with
W. T. IeFevre, resident horticulturist of
the Bitter Root Vslley Irrigation company,
has Just completed an exhaustive and val
uable investigation In reference to the pol-
lenlzatlon of apple trees in the bitter root
At the Instance of II. M. Sloan, manager
of the company's tracts In the Bitter Root
valley, the horticulturists named visited all
the leading horticultural experta of the ap
ple growing atates of the middle west and
east, in an endeavor to learn how far they
might depart from the established methods
of planting in the Bitter Root valley, and
still remain sure of continued good crops.
It has been the custom from the begin
ning In the Bunnyslde tracts of the Bitter
Root valley to plant approximately one
fourth Oano apple trees and three-fourths
Mcintosh Red. The result has been never-
falling crops and perfect apples, uniform
In else and color, and without worms.
apples which last winter brought as high
as $4 per box on the St. Paul market.
Inasmuch as the varieties which have
been used simply for the purpose of pol
lenlsing the Mcintosh Red have been ap
ples of lower commercial value. It Was
thought that pollenJzatlon might safely be
done away with, making the entire, acreage
the valuable Mcintosh Red or the perhaps
equally valuable Jonathan. The Investi
gation, which Included all of the great ap
ple growing states of the east, and em
braced Interviews with the biggest men
In the apple growing profession, resulted
in a unanimous finding that the methods
practiced by the Bitter Root Valley Irri
gation company on their land In extreme
southwestern Montana are the most suc
cessful that have ever been Inaugurated
In apple growing.
The horticulturists wound up their In
vestigation at Washington, D. C, by In
terviewing government officials, and every
where were told the method In the Bitter
Root valley could not be Improved upon;
that either the Gano or the Wagner apple
should be used for pollenlzatlon purposes,
as haa been the custom there, and will
continue to be the custom.
The Bitter Root orchardists are elated
over the finding, which places them at the
top of the ladder in "knowing how" In the
orchard business.
Montana Streams Being Harnessed
to Fnrnlah Electrical Power
HELENA, Mont, May 24. (Special.)
Development of natural resources In this
territory Includes a number of hydro
electric plants to generate 100,000-horse
power. This power will be furnished at
low rates for farm purposes. The Helena
Commercial club is centering Its activities
on the "Spokane ranch" property, eight
miles east Of the Northern' Pacific rail
road. A steam plow, was put to work on
this place and more than 1,000 acres of
wheat have been planted.
The state experimental farm operated by
the State Agricultural college Is . located
upon this ranch and a twenty-acre apple
orchard has recently been set out. The
entire property consists of about 14,000
acres, about 6,000 of which will be retained
by the company and rapidly developed into
a grain and stock feeding ranch, and
parts of the acreage will be retailed to
parties who will improve their purchase.
Several North Dakota parties were
recently over the land, one of whom has
selected a farm site, and others of the
party have promised to return at an early
date and purchase adjoining land.
The home ranch buildings are 11 lighted
by electricity from one of the nearby
power dams on the Missouri river. Much
of the ranch labor, such as feed grinding,
Is done by the use of electrical apparatus.
Within twenty-five miles of Helena are
dams completed and In the course of con
struction, which will generate 100,000-horse
power electricity. The company operating
these power plants has agreed to make
a very low rate on current used for farm
Ths present season so far bids fair to
continue to be a most favorable one for
moisture. The spring has been cool and
great quantities of snow and Ice are still
packed In the gulches in the mountains, in
suring a quantity of water In the streams
for Irrigation during the summer. The
annual precipitation at Helena Is fifteen
and one-half Inches and the soil on sur
rounding benches in ths Prickly Pear
valley Is well adapted to dry farm crops.

DALLAS, S. D.. May 21 .-(Special )
Mellette and Bennett counties and othor
vast tracts of public domain In South
Dakota were opened to land seeUern
within the present year. The opening of
these counties means the development of
soli over hundreds of thousands of acres.
The new county of Mellette Is being or
ganised. White River and Wood are can
didates for the county seat of Mellotte
county and the first election will be held
Thursday, May 26.
The bill opening Mellette and Bennett
counties In southern South Dakota paused
congress some time since and the work of

land Is practically completed?
Mellette county lies directly west of
Tripp county, which was opened to settle
ment In 1909 and which is now completely
settled and looks like a county ten years
New Towna Developing.
Splendid towns have been established In
Tripp county und the process of settlement
and development has been so rapid that
It can hardly bo realized that the county
Is yet only two years old. Mellette county
contains approximately S0O,JO acres and
the land Is practically the fame as the
land in Uiegory and Tripp counties and
will no doubt draw very large crowds
to the opening and will settle us rapidly
and develop as speedily as these two
counties have developed.
Of the land in Mellette county there are
about 360,000 acres which have been al
lotted to Indians and are still in their pos
session. Approximately 1U0.0V0 acres of al
lotted land has passed out of the hands
of the Indians and is owned by while
settlers. The remainder of tht land, with
the exception of two sections In each
township, which is donated to the publlo
schools of South Dakota, will be open
to settlement next full and a rush eijual

the townsltee of Dallas in Oregory county
and Winner, Jordan and Carter In Tripp
county, has platted a town in tha geo- ,
graphical center of Mellette county on the '

this new townsite and it bids fair to be
a splendid town. Ths towns of White
River and Wood are the candidates for
county seat and the promoters and friends
of each town are making strong cam
paigns. The candidates for the various of
fices in the county are also very busy
looking after their Interests and altogether
Mellette county is seeing more excitement
than it has since the days of Indian up

enteen years of observation of horticul
tural Interests In Southern Idaho lead me
to the prediction tht the UU crop will es

Charles J. Sinsel, an Idaho fruit grower.
"The frost has done but very little. If
any damage. Apples, peaches, pears, prunes
and nectarines aa well aa the berry family
all Indicate a full crop. Our horticulturists
are giving special attention to the cultivat
ing, spraying and trimming of their tres,
so that our fruit buyers can depend on get
ting carloads of No, 1 fancy stock from
this section.
"Wheat, oste, rye arid barley look fine
and are doing exceptionally well, and ths
rye is now heading out and promises a
good yield. Alfalfa, timothy and clover
has made an excellent growth this spring,
and it Is but a matter if a few days until
our farmers will commence to harvest their
first crop of hay. The community notices
an occasional newocmer from Nebraska,
eastern Iowa and northeastern Kanna.
The active campaign of The Omaha 1ra
haa much to do .with this new ami live
