GHOST OF POPULISM
Direct LPifislationisls Have the
Old Party Indecent liurial.
('Ailed Only Ipon Those Who Be
lieve in the Principles of the
New Scheme lo Catch Voles.
Though it i-i denied in Borne quartern,
and the tame little meeting <>f the direct
legialationista lant Saturday in heralded
\>\ the participants as a "warm populist
meeting", that gathering 61 distinguish
ed "reformere" threw op the popalist
npooge. They discarded the ol«l worn
out party with an earn and gracefulness
which casts the bright searchlight of
truth upon the "reformer" and his wily
and rariuua tricks to control the politi
cal li vrr. Populism and the "people's
party," with all their burning issues,
were tossed into the gutter with about
the same heartburning with which an
old shoe in thrown in the back alley to
fester and to mold.
Though the participants in that «li«
--tinguished gathering of "reformers"
Mt ill attempt to masquerade as populists,
they dropped every i->ni of the party ex
cept that of direct legislation. Their
talk showed it and their written ami
adopted resolutions ntill more plainly
show it. Their firsl resolve was thin:
"Thai a convention be called of all the
voters who believe in the principles of
direct legislation, disregarding all punt
party affiliations whatever."
Populism and people's party never
had a word from any there. The old
party in left, dying at tlie roadside and
a nt w scheme sprung by the old schem
How it Was Arranged.
Especial efforts have been made by
Cuarlie Cline ami his Few Whitman
county lieutenants to capture the cen
tral committeemen of the populist party
and bitch them to the now baud wagon,
hoping to pull over the rank and file of
the dead old party with the precinct
leaden. They have succeeded to some
« \d nt in their designs upon the central
committeemen and succeeded under the
fiction tbatil wan to be a meeting of
the populist central committee in drag
ging 22 or 2.'! of the committeemen
into Saturday's meeting. With these
and the liberal sprinkling of curious
spectators of all parties 44 people were
present at high tide.
I). B. Conrad of ■. )akesdale was made
chairman and Joseph slogan of Colfax
secretary. A. committee on resolutions
was appointed nn follows: C. B. Kegley,
chairman; J. <!. Elliott, 15. W. Powers,
R. C. Canfield and J. M. Reed. Whm
the committee retired ir left the door
open and invited all the direct legisla
tionists present to come in and discuss
tbe resolutions to be presented. This
did not work very well, because every
body had too much to say and there
was danger that the resolutions fixed
up in advance would get badly scarred
up. Finally the resolutions published
below were offered and adopted with
some opposition. At no time were
more than about 15 votes cast.
J. B. Johnson moved to accept the
resolutions. Then Judge McDonald
asked about the representation allowed
by the resolutions of the various pre
cincts in the convention called for May
17, calling attention to the fact that
the Second ward of Colfax was accorded
nine delegates, which, according to the
party vote, was too high. Then the
curious manipulation of the representa
tion came out. The meeting was in
formed that the representation was
based upon the total vote of all parties
in the last election, and not upon the
populist vote. This looked big and
everybody was satisfied, even though
there were not, enough direct legislarion
ists in many precincts to till the posi
tions open for delegates.
A vote of sympathy for Chairman
Carper in his illness was given upon
motion of 11. W. Canfield.
(i. C. Thatcher moved that ail pre
cincts be notified by mail of the actions
taken by the meeting. Judge McDon
ald recognized the Commoner as the
otiicial organ and proposed that the
report be published in that paper
A motion by .1. <;. Elliott that pre
chicta tier! committeemen for two
years at (lie primaries to be held Feb
ruary '22 prevailed.
Then trouble came up over the pro
vision of the resolution which calls for
the convention on May 17, to nominate
three candidates for each oflice and refer
them buck to the people, the ones thus
receiving the highest vote to be the
nominees. H. .1. Wilson said to confine
the choice to three was drawing it too
Sine. He wanted everybody to have a
chance. Jndge McDonald moved to re
consider and that people at the primaries
be permitted to vote for who they please
for nominees. .1. B. -Johnson objected
to the judge's appendix. He called at
tention to the fact that this plan was
tried in 1594, and that all remembered
how it worked then, wheu there were
something over 400 candidates for
sheriff. C. P.. Kegley called the judge's
motion down on a point of order, de
claring he had three or four motions
embodied in one. The chair ruled the
point well taken and the resolutions
were left as originally written and
adopted, after .!. W. Mathews had made
a red-headed speech on the beauties of
On motion of liatheira a committee
of three was appointed to send out

Whereas, Many and divers reforms have !
been proposed and are now advocated by the !
people of ftll political parties of the nation.;
state and county for the accomplishment of
better irovernnietit and conditions for the pros- j
perity of the people; and, whereas, minor dif
ferenCM have been and are being used by the
enemies of all reform for the purpose of di-1

Therefore he it resolved. That a convention

DHOWNKD IN A WATER TROUGH.
Utight liittle Boy at Endicott Fell
to His Death.
A sad accident darkened the lives of
Frank E. and Nella V. Stanfield of near
Eudicott Thursday evening, January 18.
Their little son, Audrey Elwood, aged
two years, three months and 24 days,
was drowned in a watering trough. The
little fellow strayed from the house to
the trough at the windmill and in some
manner climbed upon it and fell in. He
had been absent from the house but 15
or 20 minutes when he was missed by
his mother, who went in search and
found him lifeless in the water. Vain
(fforts to resuscitate him were made by
the frantic household. His mother in
running to the fields for the father sus
tained t-erious injuries and was carried
back to the house almost lifeless, and is
in a precarious condition.
Because of the high esteem in which
Mr. and Mrs. Stanfield are held and the
cherished remembrance of the golden
haired little boy, a large circle of friends
attended the funeral services, conducted
at the home by Rev. James, and ac
companied the remains to the Endicott
cemetery, where the Woodmen of the
World, in a body, took charge of the
burial. Many were the floral tributes
offered by sympathizing friends.
Audrey was a golden haired little boy,
beautiful of face and form, of rare in
tellectual brightness and of cheerful and
happy disposition. He was the pride of
his parents and the idol of his grand
parents, Mr. and Mrs. T. 11. Logsdon of
Endicott, and a pet of the community.
His sad and untimely death cast a pall
over the entire community.
J. A. Black, the pugilist, who was last
week held to the superior court by a
Pullman justice of the peace on a charge
of misdemeanor in having defrauded M.
C. True, a Pullman hotel keeper, out of
a board bill of .£22.f>o, is free again.
Last Saturday Attorney Kimball of
Pullman sued out a writ of habeas cor
pus and asked for Black's release in the
superior court. lie represented that
Bay Clark of Pullman had agreed to
stand good for the board bill, and that
if Black had beaten anybody it was
Clark, who is not a hotel keeper. The
matter was argued by Mr. Kimball and
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Roberts,
when Judge McDonald refused to release
Black. After this the deputy prosecut
ing attorney remarked that had Mr.
Kimball argued the unconstitutionally
of the act, in that it provides imprison
ment for debt, he would probably have
been compelled to acquiesce, The court
said he had been thinking of that him
self, looked the matter up and discharged
Black on this ground.
Beets Better Than Was Thought.
Upon the occasion of the closing of
the season's run at the Waverly beet
sugar factory Wednesday of last week
D. C. Corbin, the owner addressed a
large gathering of farmers. He showed
that it was far more profitable to raise
beet* than wheat; that the farmer could
easily clear $20 to |25 per acre on his
land. He advised the farmers not to
plant more than they could properly
cultivate, and said he stood ready to
assist all with seed and machinery. He
said he was ready to enter into contracts
to take beets at an advanced price over
that of the past season; that the beets
were so much richer in sugar and purity
than he had anticipated. The factory
ground GOOO tons of beets this year and
haR 4000 sacks of sugar on hand. It is
of finest quality.

Mrs. Moses Saxon Narrowly Es-
caped Being Murdered.
Sayagely Attacked in Her Bed By
An Unknown As
A mysterious assault was made upon
Mrs. Moses Saxon at her home on Pena
wawa creek during Friday night. She
was awakened from her sleep by a heavy
hand laid upon her throat and the re
mark, coupled with a vile name, that
"I've got you now." At the same time
she saw in the dim light her assailant
reaching to a breast pocket as if for a
knife. The man was choking her in the
With a violent effort Mrs. Saxon
wrenched loose from his grasp and eaid,
"No you haven't." Then she ecreamed
and her son St. (lair, sleeping upstairs,
rushed down to her aid, but the man
had disappeared, leaving the door open
Mrs. Saxon says when she wrenched
loose from the grasp upon her throat
and spoke the man stepped back and
made no further effort to molest her,
just as if her voice had shown him she
was not the person he was after. It is
evident that had she not loosened her
self from the grasp upon her throat the
villain would have murdered her, aa thp+
seemed to be his only purpose.
Sleeping upstairs' was Mrs. Saxon's
daughter-in-law, Mrs. Marion Saxon.
She thought a few minutes before the
assault that someone was in her room,
as she felt something touch the bed
clothes as if a cat were walking over her,
or some one lightly feeling about. She
reached eorr, matchep, but they were de
fective and several were tried before she
succeeded in getting a light. In the
meantime she fancied she heard some
one pass through a door over which a
sheet was hung. She had just got a
light struck and arisen to explore when
Mrs. Saxon screamed.
The affair is clouded in mystery, as
there seems not the slightest reason for
the assault upon the lady. Sheriff Ca
nutt and Deputy Steward visited the
scene aa soon as informed, but there was
absolutely no clew upon which to base a
Beautiful Specimens Taken From
the Best Chance Mine.
The management of the Best Chance
mine on the Pend d'Oreille river is in a
hnppy frame of mind theee days over
recent developments in this promising
property. Manager Arthur Howe came
down from the mine Saturday and
turned over to Secretary W. W. Waite
as the latest strike some ore samples
carrying native copper in chunks which
made the secretary's eyes bulge, even
with his great faith in the ledge. At a
depth of 45 feet this native copper was
found. The ledge is five feet wide and a
true fissure, heavily mineralized through
out with native copper, pyrites and black
oxides of copper. It gives every prom
ise of great richness.
The stock of this mine is entirely
owned in Colfax. Those having its
affairs in charge have always refused to
sell stock to any but Colfax men,though
large blocks could at any time be easily
disposed of at Spokane to parties who
hold near-by claims.
