John F. Nugent has declined a posi tion on the executive committee of the democratic state central committee.

Simmons and attended by a num ber of young lady teachers, among whom Nugget has noted Misses Annie Keenan, Violet Glover, Isabel Deary, Margarest Shea and Mabel C. Kelly, Misses Gertrude and Cynthia aud Mr. .1. C. Deary also came up from Pleas ant Valley with their sister, but did not attend the institute. The presence of these charming young ladies iu town has put the young men here on their best behavior, and made the at tendance at the Thursday evening so cial dance much larger tbun usual. A. F. Stevens left Wednesday morn ing to look after his property interests iu the state, expectiug to be goue from here about 15 days. He took below with him Johu Martiucourt, who has been an invalid, suffering from asthma for the past two years, and who would scarcely have been able to have made the trip alone.

Judge William Mitchell, who is now a traveling man out on the road^before starting, came up to Silver and flung up his resign as J. P. of DeLamar pre cinct. The judge bad an easy time of it in tho now law abiding aud peaceful camp compared with what the writer of this item had iu the same position 10 years ago, when "a man for break fast'' was not a surprising call for him iu the moruiug, and coroner's iuquests were frequent, and drunkeu rows and shooting scrapes only attracted mo mentary notice. The jail down there, now only occupied occasionally by a . hobo sleeping off a drunk, was, in thos * ' days, a much occupied place. All is serene aud quite now. Haviland China at Getchell^. DVBOIS AND DEMOCRACY . ' What a Democratic Paper Has to Sa y About Fred T. Dubois. Senator Fred T. Dubois, the ancient enemy of the party, who has fought it down to defeat when he wore the garb of the opposition and who never found a word of praise for it until such time as he wanted to use it for his personal gain, eamo to the party with confes sions of his wrongs in the past and with promises of good in the future, begged to be taken into the party. Contrary to the best judgment of many he was not only received on his pre tensious and promises, but was at once rewarded with the best plaoe the party had in its power to bestow. No sooner had be been received than he began to conspire and devise means whereby he might lead astray large numbere of the members of the party. The first year he was received, in spite of the fact that the party machinery was iu the control of reliable demo crats of years devotion to the party, and in whom the people had confi dence, the opposing party was raised from a minority party of over ten thousand two years previous to only two thousand that year. Then, after the party had wou by this nar row margin and Dubois had been elected United States senator, he again applied his designs against the party aud won the head official of the state from the friendship of the men who placed him there, aud caused him to place iu positions of trust and honor, those dose to Mr. Dubois him self, with the result that the adminis tration was filled with scandal and dis sension and at the next election, still manipulated by Dubois, was defeated by over seveu thousaud. Not satisfied with leading the party from a ten thousad majority to a seven thousand minority iu the short space ef two years, he is now deter mined upon driving from the parly the sympathies aud voters of more than twenty thousaud of the inhabitants of the state. This he succeeded iu doing by deception and deceit or some other means at the recent convention at Lewiston iu spite of the fact that a re spectable majority of the convention had said that they did uot wish to further experiment with his danger ous and undemocratic doctrines. By personal pleas and blandishments and by promises of possible official ap pointments he induced a sufficient number of misguided members of the party to reverse their own cool judg ments and to adopt his policy of dis rupting the party for the sake of vent ing his personal spleen and to possibly assist him again to his positiou of honor aud trust, and that too, on a principle that is as foreign to demo cratic doctrine as is his practical morality from his pretended virtue. With this history before them and with the knowledge that bis efforts are solely agaiust the best interests of the party and of the state, shall not demo crats, those who are democrats from principle aud tradition, be justified in carrying their fight against their usurper to the point where they cau save themselves, the party and those who have been misled by him from the consequences of their madness? Shall they not fight to the utmost this old enemy, who, under false pretenses of friendship and repentance for form er injustice done the party, is now do ing greater injustice than ever before? —Pocatello Advauee, Democratic. Pay Up Notice. All persons owing me accounts are kindly requested to dig up, otherwise l will be compelled to put their bills iu the bauds of a collector. I need money. Charles Forney.

Judge Mitchell is now visiting the Wood River towns in the interest of the Co-Operative Home Builders' asso ciation, of which he is the Idaho repre sentative. Mr. Percy of Cow Creek, suffering from having a splinter ir his thumb, nearly a month ago, has beeu here hav ing the sore treated by Dr. Farrer. The thumb is getting well. DeLamar will celebrate Labor Day with its usual zeal. When the miners down here start out to have a good time they have it. They are a jolly set of fellows who know how to make things go fast. Their program has not yet been announced, but they promise it will be a stunner. Sammy and Billy Barkle and John Scovern have gone to Cow Creek lakes for a few days duck shooting. When Sammy went down there a year ago, he was brought home with the femeral bone of his dexter leg broke with a compound fracture. We hope that no such mishap will befall him this time, because DeLamar is only half a town with Sammy on the shelf. Prof. H. S. Simmons, the popular principal of the DeLamar schools, re turned from his vacation Saturday, and says that be had a most interest ing outing. He visited his former home and relatives in Indiana; was an at tendant at the republican national con vention at Chicago aud the democratic uatioual convention at St. Louis, being fortunate iu securing seats at both; .spent about a mouth in seeing the wonders of the world's greatest fair, and was present at the opeuing of the democratic campaign in Indiana by Tom Taggert, chairman of the national democratic committee, but, happily, escaped the vice-presidential notifica tion meeting iu West Virginia, where John Sharp Williams made such a com plete ass of himself,aud did uot have the pleasure of attending that other vice presidential notification meetiug in In diana where Eliha Root made suoh a masterful speech. Mr. Simmons comes home iu fine spirits, ready to take up his school work again with his usual zeal. Wheu asked if he had had any good word to say of Idaho while away, he replied that thi subject with boBl formerly prino^| schools, aud^Ki valleys aud to him, am more to hisflikii than it wi been a tireless bis bruthei.
