Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - April 4, 1896, Blackfoot, IdahoThe failure of Congress. A new York paper has been interviewing1 merchants and business men in the principal commercial centers of the country As to the influences which have checked the favouring prospects of Foj Ade that prevailed last fall. The general opinion thus obtained is to the effect that the explanation lies mainly in the course that has been pursued by Congress. That body had a Fine Opportunity to promote the revival of business to restore Confidence and to encourage Enterprise. The people looked to it for sound and practical legislation on subjects vitally related to the National Prosperity. It assembled with a perfect understanding of what was expected of it. The november elections had left up room for doubt about the popular desire with regard to measures of Relief and stimulation. Every member knew what his constituents wanted and How they could be benefited. But the important duty of carrying out the Well defined and Well emphasized will of the people was treated with indifference and subordinated to comparatively Light and irrelevant considerations. The business interests of the land waited for helpful legislation Only to be disappointed. Instead of the assistance that they had anticipated they got a kind of treatment that was enervating and dispiriting and All of their sunny calculations were More or Jess eclipsed. It is a notorious fact that the session has been principally devoted to speech making upon topics having Little or nothing to do with the material welfare of the country. This abundance of vocal deliverance has not served to turn a single one of the Idle wheels in the factories or to furnish work for a single unemployed labourer or to add a cent to the profits of any kind of a trader. It has pertained entirely to vague possibilities of War to Remote and improbable contingencies and to matters of a superficial and transient nature. This is particularly True of the Senate. The members of that Branch of Congress with a few exceptions have seemed to be More anxious to evade and postpone important duties than to perform them. There has been a constant disposition apparently to talk serious obligations out of sight and to prevent All legislation bearing directly and advantageously upon commercial and Industrial affairs. Bills intended to improve financial conditions and accelerate business operations have been slaughtered without mercy or thrust aside by parliamentary strategy. It is no wonder therefore that the Gratifying prospects of Trade which existed last fall have failed to maintain off air brightness. Congress has done nothing to better the situation and hasten the return of Good times and the country now contemplates it Only with an anxious Hope for its adjournment As soon As Globe Democrat. The Cincinnati enquirer the leading newspaper of Ohio and knows Mckinley from a to a has this to say of him a we have always told our Republican friends that they cannot do better than to take our comely Little Napoleon Whoie name is the adjective which describes the highest Tariff Bill Ever framed. If they want Protection where is the Man who dare to favor higher duties than Mckinley if they want a Gold Standard Man the republicans of that persuasion know that governor Mckinley would As soon be caught playing poker on sunday in a Porner Saloon anywhere in the City of Cincinnati with the windows a open As to do anything antagonistic to associated Banks the chamber of Commerce or the Stock Exchange of new York City. If the Silver coinage republicans want a candidate of to Weir Way of thinking we Point with Pride to the Mckinley straddle in the recent state convention a straddle which put straddle a the Minneapolis National convention straddle of 181 2, or the straddle of the democratic National convention of the same year. Of course the bimetal lists Are fully aware that the Republican party cannot favor Silver coinage without losing indispensable Eastern states besides having the cold shoulder from Wall Street when asking for Campaign subscriptions. But while the a grand old party is obliged to stand by the Gold faction Mckinley if Given control of the National convention will give them the hand t som est Silver plated Gold Bug Resolution that has Ever been framed. Those of the Republican politicians in the far West who Are Only for Silver to please their constituents can pretend to really believe that the Mckinley straddle Means free Silver coinage. So take it for All in All our own Mckinley can probably do the two horse act. With the horses going in the opposite directions with less damage to himself than any other politician of his the newsboys7 Home in san Francisco furnishes meals to the boys at five and ten cents. For his Nickel the boy gets soup or bears or sandwiches or Mush and milk or Hamburg Steak or Corn beef hash or pie or cake. With each of these is furnished bread butter and Coffee. For ten cents he in a have a banquet of Steak chops egg i Stew sausage or fish cakes served with soup read butter and Coffee 1jcople a amp cd n a 1 me c t i no. The stockholders of the Peoples canal and irrigation company held their annual election of officers at Moreland last saturday March 28th, at which the following officers were elected b. Cluff jr., John England or. Bell or. Lindsay or. Hutchison or. It a / Austin and or Brown or Cluff was chosen president and or. H. P. Christensen was retained As business Man Ager. The Board was authorized to negotiate a loan of Twenty thousand dollars $20,000and was instructed to push the construction of the canal with All rapidity. One fourth Cash and three fourth ditch Stock will be paid All workmen. Water will be through the first division 25 Miles for this year s crop a committee of three was appointed to Aid in the location of settlers and to see that every one complied with the requirements of the Law in cultivating and developing the land. It was the sense of the meeting that no one should be allowed to hold land illegally but that the full requirements of the Law should be complied with or the claims would be contested. A committee was also appointed to make investigations looking to the inducements that might be offered capitalists for the establishment of industries such As canneries dairies Gristmill Etc., also to the possibilities of having Bridges built across the River at Cluff s and at the Grover Bench the one to make a More direct route to Blackfoot the other to Pocatello. A Resolution was adopted and will be widely published a inviting All people who desire to build Homes to come and Settle under the Peoples canal and receive water and canal Stock on the same terms As the original settlers. X. To whom the credit is due. The following is a copy of a letter sent from the general land office to senator Dubois and Hon. Edgar Wilson March 21, 1896. A sirs a i have to advise you that i have this Day submitted the application of the state of Idaho for the segregation of land list 1, under the american Falls canal and Power company a canal under Sec. 4, act of August 18th, 1894, 28 stat. 372 422 to the Hon.

General Good feeling and rejoicing Here and Over the River on line of canal. A or 1 c. easter hares. About easter time hares Are almost As common As eggs in the shop windows and Many boys and girls May wonder Why this is so. It is Plain Why the egg should be used. The life which comes after so Long a time from the lifeless looking egg makes it especially typical of the resurrection. It is not so Clear what the Hare has to do with easter sunday. Easter is a feast regulated by the Moon. That is it is appointed by the Church that easter should fall a upon the first sunday after the first full Moon which fell upon or after the Vernal now the Hare is the animal which the ancients considered sacred to the Moon and proper to be used at All feasts regulated by the Moon. So among the old customs which have been handed Down to us from the old old Days is that which still uses the Hare As Well As the egg in the pretty fanciful decorations suitable for our great Spring festival easter sunday. The Island of Cuba Over which there is so much turmoil is about 721 Miles Long its average Width is about 80 Miles and contains 42.319 Square Miles.
