I /»• Three months ............................."•> A Second Warning. The Boise Sentinel speaks again to the populists of the state, and this time in no uncertain tones about the danger of fusion. This time it says: "Our readers will remember that some months ago the Sentinel warned populists against the dan ger of becoming i Joinh to the democratic whale, and recent events make it necess rv to repeat the warning. "Senator Marion liutler is a well known ultra fusionist, having, as national chairman of the popu list party, energetically moved along fusion lines at every oppor tunity, in season and out of season, for many months (rast, and ou May 17 he succeeded in inducing the populist convention of North Car olina to pass by an overwhelming majority a fusion resolution. "The resolution itself is as follows: Resolved, That this convention elect a confer« nee committee, which shall be- authorized to confer with any party or faction of a party, that declares its endorsement of the above principles and purposes, and that favors co operation with with peoples party, to carry the same into 1 fleet upon such basis as will maintain intact the integrity of the peoples party, and as will preserve to it not less than its pres ent representation in both state and national affairs.' "There was a fusion bill strong enough for anybody, fuse with any party or part of a party that would give the populist party the same quantity of spoils already enjoyed "On May 26th the democratic convention met and rejected these very pronounced overtures, hut 'in vited' all persons to get under the democratic umbrella, take a seat on the Chicago platform, and give the officers salute to a democratic hand master. "The purpose is there displayed; past efforts have so far demoralized the populist party of that state that they are not considered dangerous, and now they are politely invited to help push the other lellow's wagou over the hill. "It will he ever thus when the opportunity presents itself, not only with the democratic party, but with eveiy party which gains an ascendency over their erstwhile ally.'' Patriotic Lewiston. Under the above caption the Cœur d'Alene Press registers a strong, healthy kick against Lew iston. Lewiston is alright, and has officers yet to command several more companies. The meu who serve in the ranks in company B will have no complaint against the officers who come from "the city that nestles in the valley." Lew iston's quoto is large, that we ad mit, hut so is Lewiston's political pull. See. Following is the mat ter set out by the Press: "We are pleased to note the un selfish patriotism of that beautiful little rural town of Lewiston, fair Lewiston on the Snake. Its citi zens are overflowing with patriot ism. We had no idea that so much of it could he found iti the little town that nestles in lha valley between the towering hills of the winding Snake until we an alyzed the roster of B company with the following astonishing re sult: In this company Lewiston has one major, one adjutant, one captain, two lieutenants, five ser geants, eight corporals, two musi cians and seventeen privates. This makes Lewiston's quota ot the company consist of twenty of ficers for seventeen privates fur nished. Kootenai county furnish ed over fifty privates to fill up the company for the Lewiston patriots. Among tbs Kootenai privates were men who had seen filteeti years' lervice in the regular army, some of them very proficient in military! lallicv but like all good soldiers, they Accepted the situation With out a murmur and have gotie to the front to battle for theii country, Kootenai county was outrageously treated in this matter. In settling the Cuban questiou we have had to settle the Hawriian question. All operations in the Pacific called for a permanent base of supplies. ( )ur vessels could not coal at Honolulu and proceed to Manila without violating neutral ity laws, unless Hawaii was recog nized as our ally. Once the ally of the United States, we must pro tect her interests as well, and an nexation is sure to follow. With such valuable possessions in the Pacific the government will he forced into a new foreign policy re garding colonial possessions. Ownership of Hawaii and the Philipines brings us face to face with the Asiatic questions, where we have hitherto looked with no concern now we must guard valu able private interests. There will grow broad questions of policy out of the results of this w'ar that may dwarf all present contentions. The nation will emerge from this war with world wide interests to guard and protect. Unconditional Surrender. Messrs. Steuncnberg, Reagan, Walker and Morris are the prom inent democrats who anticipate gubernatorial honors. Messrs. Mc Farland, Forney, Martin, and Johnson (not "old Dick") are the democratic brethren who would ac cept the supreme bench, if the people insist upon it. Moore, lvlder, and Scales are hopeful in the direction of the district bench. For congress, the democrats would concede the nomination to some silver republican who will private ly announce himself as ready to "amalgamate" at any time and throw aside the mask. It won't do, gentlemen. It won't do brethern; it won't do- "we'll jine" you in the fight upon terms of exact and even justice—not otherwise. What is the matter with Parsons for governor?—Dou ble Standard. Both the populists and silver republicans are asking that the democrats concede the governor to either of them as the terms of "exact and even justice." It is hardly likely that the democrats will yield their hold upon the highest office tn the state nor is it likely that the populists and silver republicans will make a complete surrender. The success of fusion now depends upon the strength of democratic greed or the strength of silvcr-popnlist backbone. The democrats will have to concede the governor and a fair share of all other offices to their allies or pre pare to fight the battle single handed. In the grand scramble for political pie the fusion platform very likely to Ire short on political principles. All crop reports continue favor able. The experts predict a yiqld of 700,000.000 bushels for the year 1898. The foreign demand still continues and the surplus wil 1 be well out of the way when the new crop comes in With $1.15 tor the top price there was exported last week over 6,500,000 bushels. The price outlook lor the coming crop is excellent. Farmers everywhere are greatly encouraged over the situation. Farm values have taken a perceptive rise, machinery is in demand and conditions for permanent prosperity are rapidly settling upon the people. The coining 4th of July will he celebrated with a greater show ol patriotism than lias beeu known in many years. Just as Memorial day was marked by an unusual outburst ot sentiment regarding our heroic dead, showing a unity of feeling never before expressed, so July 4th will witness a revival of the old time enthusiasn with its fervid oratory of patriotic senti ment. The times are propitious for some of the finest flights eloquence ever heard. of routed The triple alliance had j no weight against the facts of re Tlie Oregon election is the fifstl gun in the political campaign of l.SyS The fusionists were utterly turning prosperity under the pres ent administration. The result in Oregon is a warning to the fusion ists elswhere that calm common sense will be arraved this year solidly against visionary theories not supported by actual conditions. Hew to this Line. The state administration is now democratic. If there is to be a fair union, the control will pass to the silver republicans and populists for a term. There is a clear line ot distinction between union and surrender.—Double Standard. The populists are naming Ed Boyce for governor, the silver re publicans, Geo. M. Parsons. Its no use boys, Steunenberg, Idaho's war governor, holds the only um brella that can shelter a harmon ious union of all the silver forces. There is a new paper started in Boise. Rumor says that it is to go gunning for Gunn, but a shrewded guess would be that it is a Gunn paper since its editorials oppose the movement of the anti Gunn forces at every point. The democrats in the senate showed tneir appreciation for the populist green hack ideas when they bolted and voted for the bond issue. The tie that hinds popu lism to democracy is only a ven te» nous thread. Gov. Steunenberg and a flying squadron of office seekers are soon to leave the capital to touch in at all prominent ports in the state.
