Or.; is declared forfeited. Local officers

ence right of entry, under the homestead

LIVELY TIME EXPECTED.
The Idaho Senatorial Fight to. be Ke
Boisb City, Feb. 4. The late bitter
senatorial fight is to be revived soon
The Claggett men, who have 'all along
maintained that Dubois election .was
illegal, have for several days been work
ing to get a new election. It is reported
tonight that an effort will be made to
morrow to pass a resolution through
Doth houses tor a joint convention to
vote for senator. Probably a resolution
for a joint convention will carry, but it
is douDtlul that (Jiaggett will be elected.
as the Dubois men are at work, and ex
pect to hold enough of his former sup
porters to give him a majority of 7, but
Claggett's managers assert that he will
be elected and seated by the senate if
elected. Dubois had four votes to
spare when elected, but is understood
that some have left him and will vote for
Claggett, and in conjunction with eight
democratic votes expected for Claggett,
will give him a majority. Dubois is
evidently alarmed, for some of his Bing
ham county managers are here, and a
caucus of his friends was here . tonight
Telegrams were sent by him from Wash
ington to week-kneed members urging
them to remain true. He also has tel
egraphed the democratic members of
the senate to stand by him. A lively
time is expected the last of this week,
as the Claggett men are in earnest in
their ettort to elect him.
HOPE FOR THE LEPER.
Lymph Treatment Develops Enconrag
San Fbancisco, Feb. 4. Dr. Beck, of
the German hospital, has a case under
his care, the result of the experiments
in which will be watched with great
interest by the medical profession. It is
a case or leprosy. J. he patient is a
young German, of three brothers. He
contracted the disease during a resi
dence in the Sandwich islands. He is
now at the pesthouse, and Dr. Beck has
used the Koch remedy. The first injec
tion was made about two weeks ago;
since that time the most encouraging re
actionary symptoms have followed the
various injections of the fluid. Follow
ing one of the injections the affected
parts of the patient's face became cov
ered with small purple pimples, showing
the disease is amendable to the lymph
Dr. Beck said the reason why small
doses of lymph given patients here failed
to produce the same effects as similar
doses given patients in .Berlin, was on
account of climatic conditions and the
vast difference in the mode of living of
tiermana and Americans.
IN NEW MEXICO.
The Government Asked to Protect
Albuqukque, Feb. 4. A petition is
being circulated in Gallup, this county,
asking the department of justice to ap
point a United States commissioner, and
instruct the United States marshal of
New Mexico to appoint a special officer
for that town. For some time drunken
Navajo Indians have appeared, and sev
eral conflicts between them and the
whites were narrowly avoided. Ranch
men are losing their cattle, and they fear
to hunt them up, for the thieves would
be among the Indians, who would resist
arrest, and blood-shed would follow.
It is understood in this city that the sa
loon men at Gallup are selling Indians
whisky, and officers are wanted to arrest
and punish them.
After Cattle Thieves.
Spokane Falls, Feb. 4. Petitions
signed by over 300 alliance farmers were
today presented to the board of county
commissioners, praying that the county
employ additional help to prosecute
cattle thieves now under bond. The
petitioners claim that Prosecuting-Attorney
Allen has not the time to get evid
ence against the prisoners. The com
missioners, after taking the matter un
der advisement, retained the firm of
Turner & Graves to assist in prosecuting,
and appropriated the sum of $2oU0 to
meet the additional expense.
