agency special says: Last night run
ners from the hostile camp held a
council with the agent at which coun
cil they talked very independently,
saying that it makes their hearts bad
to see their friends here derived of
their guns and horses. On Satin day
they held a council with the com
mander of the post, Col. Wood, at
which council they were very msek
and said that all they wanted was to
come in and they would give up their
guns and ponies. They must do some
thing soon, as the buffalo are moving
and they will have to follow them.

HEAVY SNOW STORM IN'TDAHO.
SCARCITY OF HAY AND GRAIN
STOCK MUST DIE.
THE LEGISLATIVE DEAD-LOCK
Silver City, Jan. 16. Heavy snow
storms and unprecedented cold weath
er create considerable alarm among
stock men, who have reason to fear
that a large number of cattle will per
ish before milder weather sets in.
Boise City, Jan, 15. The heaviest
snow storm is provailing which wo
have experienced for four years. Hay
and grain is scarce and a great deal of
stock "will die.
Boise City, Jan. 15. The legisla
ture is still in statu quo. The council
perfected a temporary organization on
the second day of the session, and to
day proceeded to a permanent organi
zation. The council stands 7 republi
cans and 6 democrats. The members
of the assembly stand 12 republicans
and 12 democrats. Two members are
absent and will not be present, so lti
takes 14 for a quorum. The demo
crats formed by taking in two out
siders who claim seats, and ask to be
recognized, which the council refuses.
The 12 republican members meet in the
supreme court library room and ad
journed from day to day for want of
a quorum. Thus matters stood at the
third day, at a dead look.
Silver City, Jan. 16. There is
much indignation in con&equence of
the existing dead-lock in the Idaho
legislature, occurring in consequence
of the parties being so evenly divided.
The feeling is general that the mem
bers should go to work and strive to
do something for the territory, instead
of fritting away time in party squab
bles, in which nothing of any conse
quence is to be gained.
