The Lewiston Teller. — BY — C. A. Foresman, Publisher. Piifitollii-*- it» I' KnU-ri-d at tlie Lewiston ' lM*vninl I'I.-ihh Mail Mutier. fgf't >tte year, m H.i' - ain ' »lx months............. 'Iltree months......... If Mr. Gates is an expert esti mator, why employ two others from Michigan, and if he is not, why employ him at all? ' Union first, office second," says the demopopic press, but we notice that office has to be assured before union can be consummated. The stars and stripes are flying over Santiago. Liberty bas estab lished a firm foothold on the last of Spain s American possessions. The people are the bondholders, the common people of the land. AH but Sys.000,000 of the govern ment war loan was taken by the bv the people in sums not exceed ing $yx). ü.ôti' 1 41 It is a sure sign ol a tiigger some where in the wood pile when the democratic press of the state is kept busy all the time explaining the actions of the present state administration. The democrats of Ada county nre puzzled over the question ot endorditg the present administra tion and at the same time turning down Steunenberg and nominating another man for governor. The record of the democratic party shows that it has ever been nn enemy to the true progress of the nation. The attitude of its leaders in the present congress is in keeping with party precedents. The next step in the prosecution of the war is the expedition against Puerto Rico. We are rapidly ac cumulating an empire iu the is land possessions of the world. And why not carry the banner of freedom to the oppressed? Bryan's regiment parading at the Omaha Exposition is said to lie the center of attraction. This is glory enough for the man whose one ambition is to do the sky rocket act and have a large number present to wituess the event. Expert Estimator Gates employ ed by the land board at a good fat salary is waiting at Moscow for two experts from Michigan to do the work he was employed to do. Here is another instance of how the money goes under a reform administration. There is every reason to believe in tbe face of recent events that the great Gunn of the Idaho popu list gunboat is a double back-acting rifle firing from the revolving turret, aud under the Captain's management no one can Veil just where the next shot will be directed. The populists in Lalah county have decided to go it alone and thoughts of a similar action Nez Perce county is ranking the •V cold shivers run down the backs of the office-seekers. Even the stand ing tor the broad humanitarian principle of 16 to x will not keep a man warm unless a good fat office is in sight. One of the signs of prosperity is the revival of railroad construction. The estimate is that $60,000,000 will he expended in new roads in 1898, the largest showing since 1893. Another thing noticeable is the change of feeling against rail road corporations W'e are hearing It ss and less of the senseless tirade against the soulless corporations. Railioads are recognized as im portant factors in the development of tl e county, and their prospei ity is only possible when the country is prosperous. With increase of dividends they are willing and leady to extend their lines and in crease the wages of their em ployees. The Machinery of Justice. Ls Crime on the increase? The most c usual observer would be j forced to sav so if he were to ex amine the annals of this county during the past few years. The record is not one to which the citi zens of the county cau point with an >' degree of pride. The record in the aggregate is appalling and till more so when we come to con sider how little, it any, punish ment has been meted out to the offenders. I.et any citizen run thoughtfully over the list of crimes committed within the last two years a.id note the convictions and punishments and see if he is not convinced that there is a screw loose somewhere in the machinery >f j ustice. Concerning Deficency Warrants. During the time ol republican control in the state of Idaho the opposition set up a long and loud wail against all deficiency war rants. The one great argument in the demopop campaign of two years ago was that if the people elected them to office they would see to it that no deficiency warrants were ever issued. Very recently we have heard the claim that the $100,000 that could have been saved but was not has gone to pay the deficiency claims of the prior administrations Judg ing from this you would expect that the present administration was living up to its pledge and was avoiding a deficiency warrant as a fond mother would a yellow fever flag, but the contrary is the case. A few days ago one Mr. Gate«, from Arkansas and bis brother-in law Secretary Lewis arrived here from Boise and the sole purpose of Secretary Lewis's visit was to ex plain to the merchants who fitted out the expedition into the white pine country that they would have to look to the next legislature for their pay. Here is one case of de ficiency warrants, another one will come up when the commission appointed to make the exhibit at Omaha presents its bills for settle ment. There are others, and when the next legislature meets the peo ple who have been deceived by the juggled statements given to the public will find that the deficiency warrants will show where the question of economy failed to ms terali/.e. The Results of Fusion. As the full reports of the nopu* list meeting come iu we can see the effects of fusion in the ranks. The populist party which four years ago was the second party in the state is now hopelessly split into on the rock of iusiou. Con gressman Gunn aud a small coterie of his followers by well laid, schemes succeeded in rescinding the earlier call for a convention at Moscow and are preparing 10 sur render horse, foot and dragoons to the democrats at Boise the meeting called for August 24. There is every evidence that Dubois and Gunn formed the combination which resulted in rescinding the first call made by the committee. Gunn, formerly the head and shoulders of the populist party in the state, will now lead only a for lorn band of hope into the demo cratic party. The leaders of the opposition who are not yet ready to surrender every partv principle for official plunder will no doubt put a straight ticket into the field and maintain the party organiza tion. We predict that what has hap pened to the populists will also happen to the silver republicans when they come to consider the proposition of Dubois to surrender to the democrats. There will be a decided split and the silver cham pion aud the bobtailed flash ot a following will join the democracy and the others will in all probabil ity join with tl^e middle-of-the road populists. Politicians of the Gunn and Dubois stripe ire sure in the cud to go down to defeat. A few blind followers will go with them to the last ditch but the sell respecting independent voter will drop anv leader when it becomes evident that he is willing to Sacrifice every piinciple to further his own selfish unis.
