Time to Call Halt.
You aro appealed to whether itMs not
high tlmo to call a halt to theso abomina
tions, Tho Democratic party of this State has
taken up thc battlo for you and your
children, for the purity of the home, for
thc wcllbelng of society. It has como out
clearly and declared In its State platform
What Is Demanded.
"Wo demand the extermination of
polygamy and unlawful cohabitation witn
j In the State of Idaho and thc completo
separation of church and tato In political
affairs and we pledge thc Democratic par
ty to enact nuch legislation as will effec
tually suppress such evils."
Should Bo Exterminated.
What good citizen can take any excep
tion to that proposition? Ought not polyg
nmy and unlawful cohabitation to be ex
terminated in Idaho7 Should not you, as
a wife, daughter, mother or sister vote for
members of tho Legislature who will
enact laws to suppress these evils and for
a Governor who will lend his strong arm
as an exccutlvo to thc enforcement of
Fight for Christian Homes.
Tho Democratic party of Idaho knew
full well the danger from a political point
of view it must face in thus throwing
down tho gaugo of battle In behalf of tho
Christian homes of this State. It knew
It would br confronted by a hostile hier
archy that claims the right to dominate
tho votes of Its members and does doml
nato them as well by demagogues in both
parties who want to curry favor with thc
Mormon priesthood to secure political
ends, selling the glorious heritage of
American citizenship for a mess o,f pot
tage. We think you aro able to defy tho
ono and exercise a Just contempt for tho
Mormon Vote Massed.
Already evidences point that the Mor
mon voto in the southeast will be massed
against the Democratic candidates bo
cause they stand for the rights of child
hood, the purity and glory of womanhood.
If you will not come to your own support,
to whom can we look for succor?
For Purity of Home.
"Women of Idaho, the eyes of tho wo
manhood of the nation nnd tho world are
upon you. As is'npolcon said to his sol
diers in thc shadow of thc pyramids.
"Frenchmen, forty generations look down
upon you," so. with equal truth and force
may It bo said that not only generations
now living and struggling under this aw
ful shame of a debased civilization that
the advance of Christianity has placed un
der an eternal ban, but generations yet
unborn look to you to turn back this tide
of evil, rebuko the brazen violators of law
and cast one ballot for the American
home, tho purity of the family relation
and the good of tho State.
Who Oppose Polygamy.
EVery women's club, every women's or
ganization In tho United States, Including
the Mother's congress, the Women's Fed
erated clubs of the United States, the
"Women's Christian Temperance union, of
all the various religious denominations of
tho United States, through their confer
ences and general assembles, have uttered
their protest against Mormon dominance
and the unlawful and debasing practices
confessed to under oath by the leaders of
the Mormon church.
Do Away With Polygamy.
"Will you give utterance thrpugh your
ballot tills fall that you are In line with
the beat sentiment of the race and what
ever may be your poltlcal Ideas on other
questions that you are In fnvor of doing
away with polygamy and unlawful co
habitation In Idaho? If so. cast your bal
lot for tho Democratic State and legisla
Woman Suffrage on Trial.
Woman suffraco Itself Is now on trial
not onl In this State, but In the nation.
If thc women of Idaho who have the bal
lot, allow party fealty to prevent them
from recording their condemnation of a
great evil. If they will not vote for tho
suppression of polgamy and unlawful co
habitation when It is a direct issue beforo
them, then it is useless further to press
the doctrine of woman suffrago In other
States on thc ground that women If given
the ballot will vote on all moral Issues re
gardless of politics
What Will You DoP
"Will you vote for the candidates of a
party that Is too cowardly to declare
against these well-known evils that are a
menace to your homes and the Stnte, nnd
that would .fain, by Its Hllence, when the
very stones should cry out against these
debasing practices, commit you to a poli
cy at war with your every Interest and
thoso most dear to you?
Appeal to Womanhood.
Wo call upon you In the name of man
hood and womanhood, by all the sacrcd
ness of motherhood, by the holiness that
should enswnthe every cradle and cast Its
aureole of beauty and purity about every
marriage altar, to cast your ballot In the
quietness and security of tho election
booth, where no eye save your own nnd
the Eternal Supremo can see, for thoso
who stand against great odds and at great
peril to their political fortunes from a
combined nnd desperate hierarchy nnd a.

Senator Fairbanks on
Praises the President for
Dealing With Great
Discusses at Length the Effect of tho
Reclamation Act; Kind Words
BILLINGS, Mont, Sept. 26. Senator I
Fairbanks spent the greater part of the I
day discussing irrigation. The day was
devoted to a tour of Tellowstone
county, beginning nt -Glendlvo, on the
Eastern border of Montana, nnd clos
ing at this point, not far from the cen
ter of the State. Ex-Senator Carter,
who was a member of Senntor Falr
banks's party, came in for much praise
as one of the early movers to national
aid to Irrigation from both Senators
Fairbanks and Dolllver. Stops for po
litical meetings were made during the
day at the towns of Glendlve. Miles
City and Forsythe, and thc night was
spent here, where a largely attended
and very enthusiastic meeting was
Irrigation Question Discussed.
Here Mr. Fairbanks returned to tho
irrigation question, discussing at length
tho effort of tho reclamation act. He
recalled Senate recommendations for
national aid made by Senator Carter
when he was Commissioner of the gen
eral land office In 1S91, and after dwell
ing at length upon the general ques
tion of irrigation entered upon a dis
cussion of President Roosevelt's part
in securing the enactment of tho exist
ing law. On the latter point he said:
Praise for Roosevelt.
"Ten years after Senator Carter
brought this great, irrigation subject to
the attention of the American people
we had another American, who dealt
with it in a hlghmlnded, intelligent
way. He had been a part of your citi
zenship for years. He had dwelt here
in the seml-arld regions. He knew the
conditions and the possibilities. Ho
knew the great future that was await
ing you, if you could only bring water
to the parched soil of this great coun
try. "That great Statesman who compre
hended therefore the possibilities that
lie before you here, is our President
and the next President of the United
States, Theodore Roosevelt.
Utilizing Public Domains.
"In his very first message to the
United States Congress, he dwelt upon
thc necessity of dealing with the great
subject of Irrigation, and pointed out
bow it was possible to utilize thc public
domain of the United Slates so as not
to draw directly upon tho treasury In
Washington. He thought It but Just
and equltablo that the proceeds of the
sales of these lands should be utilized
for the purpose of irrigating this great
"I have Just traveled over many miles
of country where there is no sign of
the habitation of man, but under the
inspiration of this great policy which
Congress enacted into law I am op
timistic enough to believe that In thc
years lying before us there will be
homes occupied by thousands and tens
of thousands of energetic patriotic
American citizens where there are none
Democrats and Irrigation.
Mr Fairbanks also referred to the
Democratic platform on the subject or
irrigation, saying. "The Democratic
convention which met In SL Louis de
liberately makes claim to having ac
complished this great object. It Is one
of the things upon which It prides It
self now. I am not blaming them for
that, not at all; they do not have many
opportunities to make claim to the ac
complishment of any great Govern
ment measure. The only way they can
get a little modicum of credit Is to lay
claim to the achievements of the Re
publican party. They usually wait un
til after the lapie of ten, fifteen, twenty
or twenty-five years, before they accept
what we did in three yearn
Duo to Republicans.
"After a Republican CongreKJ enacted
thc irrigation measure upon the. recom
mendation of a Republican President, a
Democratic convention has the ef
frontery deliberately to claim that
Democracy Is the author of the great
Irrigation policy. We know better than
that. The Republican party knows that
the record upon this great subject Iv
written, and children in the years to
come will bless the statesmanship of
Theodore Roosevelt and the genius of

Senator Fairbanks also discussed the
tariff question, contending that the
policy of free raw material would be
disastrous to the wool Industry of Mon
tana. Referring without mentioning thc
Democratic candidate's name to Judge
Parker's reference to President McKln
ley's Buffalo speech on reciprocity, he
quoted the language of the Buffalo
s-petch, and added: "Our Democratic
friends quote President McKlnley's
speech at Buffalo In support of com
mercial reciprocity. It will be observed
that they do not quote all that was said
by the -great President, and which la
necessary to a fair understanding of his
speech upon the subject. They omitted
a vital qualification which he clearly
and moat distinctly laid down, and
which cannot bo omitted without a clear
perversion of what he Intended.
"President McKInley did not abandon
the protective policy, nor did he favor
Democratic reciprocity. He advocated
reciprocity which preserved thc pro
tective principles, and not that which
overthrows it, and which is only another
name for Democratic free trade. In
his utterances at Buffalo. President
McKInley made perfectly clear that
the reciprocity which he favored would
not imperil our home industries. To
reproduce what he said by quoting those
portions of his address -which expressed
a solicitous regard for tho preservation
of our homo production Is to convey
to tho people an erroneous impression aa
to what he verily meant and distinctly
