TKe Record on Labor.
It is an easy matlei l:ir urivrrupu
lou* politician* to declaie that they
arc the friend* of.lalur. It 1» like
wise easy for a party to claim that It
U also the only true friend of the
laboring man. When this Is done at
the beat of the drum with loud pro
fession*. It Is hard to distinguish the
difference lie tween the real and the
fais»- friend, hut when the test comes
It Is an easy matter.
So far as the politic* of Idaho 1»
concerned, it Is only necessary to re
fer to the record of the two partie»

When the democratic parly came
Into power, there was no law upon
the statute Ixxik* concerning arbitra
tion. T lie democratic party placed a
compulsory arbitration law upon the
tg>ok», and this law is not only In the
inteicsta of labor hut of the entire
citizenry of the state. It was Lin
coln who »aid that In a contest be
tween man and I lie dollar, man
should be placed upon the top. Tbe
democratic party favored compulsory
arbitration that strikes might be
done away with; that Justice might

the mercy of tbe other,

1 tratlon which proposed
tlon.il amendment providing for tire
passage of a law for an H-hour work
day for underground miners, and
those engaged In ore reduction works.
That the democratic party was right
In doing this, was conclusively prov
en when the amendment was adopt
ed by the. voters of the state by the
tremenduou* majority Ol more than
20,000. Before being able to enact
an H-hour law. In accordance with
the solemn decree of,the people, a re
publican administration was placed
In power In the state.
I'he democrats ol the last legisla
ture made an earnest effort to enact
an H-hour law and were a unit for It,
while the republican party was al
most u unit against It, one of the
prominent members ot that party an
nouncing In opposition to It thut "to
shorten the hours of lulwr means to
lengthen the hours of dissipation.''
This member, Mr. Owen, has been
re-nominated by the republican party
for the same office of representative,
It wus claimed by some republicans
who were Induced to believe so by
raise statements, that the lust leglslft
turc did not represent the sentiment
of the party upon the question.
The republican party in state con
vention absolutely Ignores the ques
tion of an H-hour day.
The democratic state platform
speaks plainly and squarely In favor
of an H-hour day.

makes no promises.
The Lemhi democratic platform
speaks in no uncertain terms In Its
Another fact which Indicates
strongly which Is the true friend of

This Is the record of the parties.
How will you vote?
