August 29, 1899 - Bartlett Sinclair, Auditor of Idaho

"The Governor's (Steunenberg) Special Commissioner at Wardner During Mining Troubles."

I was happy to find this photograph and short article as pictures of Sinclair seem rather hard to come by.

Click on the picture to be taken to my Footnote viewer for easier reading. On Footnote, click on the picture (or where it says "Enlarge") and you will be taken to the Footnote viewer. Use the + or - signs or slide in the upper left hand corner to change the size of the picture. Use the slides under the picture and on the right hand side to move the photograph right or left or up and down. Any problems let me know.

To the left of the Sinclair photo is another interesting article titled, "Grant Is Due At Any Time." "Grant" is referring to one of several transport ships used in the war with Spain. The article reports on the return of troop volunteers from Manila and the Idaho delegation that is there to greet them home (including Governor Frank Steunenberg and Senator George Shoup).

8/29/1899 - Bartlett Sinclair, Auditor of Idaho

Note: My L.A. Lakers are 25-5. They edged the Boston Celtics on Christmas day in a classic match-up that had a championship aura to it. Tonight they easily dispensed with the San Francisco Warriors. I am starting to sense a post-season rematch with the boys from Beantown and La La Land.

I hope you are all having a great holiday season. John
