CiEXTIXMUN OK Tilt! Got NTtt.:
Again the cycle of time has brought
us around to our annual meeting, ami
it becomes niv duty to make tome
suggestions to you in regard to the
welfare of our city. At our last an
nual meeting we was opperating un
der unroll charter. At that time I
lei onunended the drafting of a new
charter, a- the old one was defective
in ma ny respects, and one thing that
I specially recommended was that the
limits of tuiri it v indebtedness benised
from .?U)'X) to f 2'.00. This met with
some little objection on the ground
that toraic the limits might cause ex
travagant', an I that w would not like
ly keep wi'hin the limits anyway.
But the $2100 limits was a piovi.-ien
of the new chat ter, which the common
council authorized, and which btrame
a law at the last regular session of our
legislature, ami the financial exhibit
which 1 have just read in your hear
ing, is conclusive evidence that for one
year nt least we have not been extrav
agant. The reduction made in our city
indebtedness the past year laces u
within the limits of our chatter, anil
is evidence that without H.ine unac
countable expense we are self-supporting
and can live within our means.
There has been too much complaint
about our street improvements, an I the
condition of irrigating ditches through
the streets. I would recommend that
the council look to a general distribu
tion of street work thioughout the city,
giving to each street its ortion of
work ; and I would specially recom
mend that you control, by ordinance.
Ihe irrigating ditches, that the)' may
not be a nuisance in the streets or to
private pioperty, as they have been in
many instances heretofore.
I recommend that this pay and com
pensation of ollicers be one r)f the first
things you take into consideration
Every person performing work for the
city should hav'e a fair compensation
lor their labor. 1 would suggest that
the council enact an ordinance allow
ing each member a compensation of an
amount agreed uj on by you for bis at
tendance at each meeting, an I noth
ing for non-attendance. My opinion
is that this Will iiihiire a prompt atten
dance of our councihnen, and we Will
not this year have any trouble to gel
a cpiorutu as we have had in tome in
W have many old ordinances on the
city books that are a dead letter. Oth
ers have perhaps been more or less
afl'eeterl by the late laws of tile State.
I would recommend that you iiiake a
general revision of ordinance, and
put the city on a better system of reg
ulations. Our police system is very
poor, and I think might be materially
improved with no great cost to thecity.
Gentlemen, I have this to say for our
charter. In my opinion it is defective
in soltie respects, and one thing that
conies to my mind lioW, is in regard to
street Work. I doii t think the provis
ions of the charter in that respect
meets the iippiobation of the citizens,
or of this council. I would recom
mend that tho cOlincil axatniue the
charter closely, aitd comply strictly
with the provisions of it While nlaw;
but anything you iind in- it that you
are certain is in conflict with the best
intea'sfs of the city and citizens, tiike
steps to haVe it atiicnded ut the earli
est possible, moment.

The regi-tr law enaelcd by the

various cotiutv courts at their .Janu
ary term, shall appoint Kegistcrs and
Cleiks. in each of thu precincts
throughout the county, to open book
and meet at the uual voting place,
on the second Monday in March and
sil in sc-sion tin pi days, for tile pur
poe id icalsici ing such voter- as Miay
apply. We aie Informed by Ihe
comity court, now in ses-ioti here.
Mint tiiey will not atleiul lo this mat
ter now', but will adjourn till ihe Otli
tlav of February, when the matter
will leceive their undivided atteiilloii .
They aie of the opinion that several
td Ihe precinct- in the county are en
lirely to i I trge tor thu covenlence of
the it'-iileiils therein, and would
probably be heller divided. If partie
laUe upon thcm-clves to petition to
tlii effect , giving boundaries to their
precincts, and present the same to
the court at that time, said petition
will receive their attention. It is a
malic,- of gieat impoi taucts to the
people of Ihi- -ection, both democrat"
ami republican, that as large a vote
be ea-t as possible, and a good allow
ing made at the June election, as a
reapportionment for rt'prc-eutativcs
will undoubtedly hcuiiulu by the next
legislature, and the apportionment
will be made according to the vote
east in June. We will refer to this

En. Scoi'T: Such weather for tho
hilitlays! Such i-lorious days like
eaily spring! Within the memory of
"the rldest inhabitant." the like has
never been seen. Farmers are low
ing from one end of the valley to thu
other, thedavsare warm ami bright
and the roads are aboininabL. And
Sania Clans, the jovial old soul, hun
made his annual visit and left many
happy juvenile hearts (anil wo trust,
adult hearts too) to remember his
munificence. The gala tiny and np
panl of our shops and stores is not
tarnished, as vet, but still shines in all
its enticing beauty, luring passers-by
to purchase what Would never have
been thought of but for tho oppotunity
offered. The Christmas balls and par
ties were numerous and particularly
enjoyable, but withal Ihe deserving
poor were not forgotten, nor "tho
stranger within oitr gates." District
court is now wrestling Willi a big cal
endar and Boise is per consequence
Hooded with all classes called together
by "Old father antic the law." Hon.
James H. llawley, United States At
torney for Idaho, who has been in
attendance at the trial of 1. N. Hibbs,
defaulting postmaster at Lewiston,
says, that "the assertion that the jury
cleared llibbs Upon anv charge when
the question of his guiii or innocence
Wiw involved, is utteily preposteronn
ami entirely incorrect." The defend
ant is noW held in the penetentiarv at
Boise City in default of .fl8,000 hail
With 20 other charges against him, to
bo submitted, by order of the court,
to the next grand jttrvi and, also,
liable to he Indicted on 'M chai'ges of
issuing, forged money orders on Illi
nois, Montana, Utah, Wyoming anil
Judge Dundy llni Isstted a Writ of
habeas corpus requiring the United
States Marshal of Idaho to bring thu
body of Hibha before him at Portland
on the .10th iilst., to show callsu Why
he is heltl. The Government oltlccrs
are not concerned as to the result)
believing it will go as have thu other
legal propositions involved in the case)
and which were fully ami very ably
presented by Mr. GoilcheP-in favor
of the government. The case has
been novel in many of ils feature!),

criiulnal statutes, and the questions of

A great deal of sympathy is expressed
by a certain elenieiit. at Lewiston, fof
