The republican club held its usual meeting at the city hall last night and in approval of the nomination of McKinley and Roosevelt, gave vent to their en thusiasm by firing sky rockets and roman candles. Over four hundred people wit nessed the fireworks. At the conclusion of which about one hundred repaired to the club quarters and listened to short speeches from I. N. Smith, J. N. Stacy, B. F. Tweedy and (ieo. Manning. Mr. Stacy presided, owing to the ab sence of J. Ii. West, president of the club, who on account of illness was unable to attend. Mr. Stacy in opening the meet ing said in part: "This demonstration tonight is in honor of the result of the republican national convention just held at Phila delphia. A convention that will go down in the history of the world unparalelled as the grandest convention ever held by the greatest republic on earth. Nine hundred and thirty delegates chosen from all of the states and .territories of the union, representing eighty millions of people without a dissenting voice pro claim the popular will of the peuple in casting nine hundred and thirty votes in favor of the next president and vice president, Win. McKinley and Theodore Roosevelt. It means that the present administration will be continued in power and that the present prosperity of the country will continue, at least for four years to come. The republican party has redeemed its pledges. It has restored prosperity within our broad land. From ocean to ocean there is enterprise, thrift, prosperity, work for all, and bread to spare. There is no demand for a change on the part of the business men of our country, or on part of the mechanic, the farmer or the wage earner, In every de partment of business a healthy state ex ists. The affairs of thu nation have been conducted upon principles of equal rights to every American citizen. The opposi tion parties have nothing to offer the people in exchange for the present ad ministration except anti-iuiperialisui, anti-expansion and anti-trusts. The total summing lip of all their slock in trade is antics, and opposition to the principles carried out by the republican party which has given tile people of this county the I high degree of prosperity we now enjoy. The last half of the century just closing records a wonderful progress made by this nation in all that contributes to the natural greatness of a mighty republic And I predict that when the time comes on Nov. 6th, for each voter to express him or herself at the ballot box, the ver dictowill lie in favor of the present ad ministration of national affairs and the nominees of the Philadelphia convention will he ratified by an overwhelming ma jority." -, I N. Smith followed with a brief history of the administration of our national affairs by the republican party during a greater portion of the past half century and pointed out the fact that under this administration the county had lieen gen erally prosperous, that the party advo cated and practiced protection to the lalHiring man, encouragement to home manufacturers and home industries; had inaugurated and carried Out a sound financial policy which had given stability to the business interests of our land and had established a credit second to no other nation. He commended the acts of the congress just adjourned and assert ed that the republican party had re I deemed its pledges made to the people:! that the democratic party was a parti with negative proclivities and had noth ing to offer the people hut promises to; oppose everything that was being done hi the republican party and believed that when the great mass of voters expressed themselves at the ensuing election would lie unmistakably in favor of continuing the republican patty in power with McKinley and Roosevelt as president and vice-president for four years longer. Judge Anderson congratulated the people of the country in the selection of Fresident McKinley and Roosevelt as standard bearers of the republican parti for 1900. He predicted an overwhelming majority for the republican party in November. He also commended the acts of congress in wise legislation. He said Idaho appreciated the course of Senator Geo. L. Shoup in securing need ed legislation for the interests of the peo ple, naming the free homestead hill, the Fort Hall reservation opened up, appro priations secured and the fact of his be ing selected as a member of the national executive republican committee. He al luded to Lewiston's candidate for gov ernor which reference was applauded by the club in a vigorous manner. After reviewing the acts of the republican party and the present prosperity enjoyed he closed with the suggestion that the republicans would carry the election in county, state and nation in November. Ii. F. Tweedy followed Mr. Anderson stating that he recently made his home here in Lewiston; that he had formerly resided in Indiana where political con tests often waxed warm; that he had been an advocate of the principles of the re-'" publican party and should contribute his support to the success of the republican party of the Mountain Gem state. lie favored the policy of the party on fi nances, on expansion, and on other lead ing questions now at issue between the republican and democratic parties. No political party can expect to satisfy the people with fault-finding and promises only. This administration should he continued four years longer to complete the policies of the party inaugurated. To turn the administration of national affairs over to a party who has opposed every act of the present administration would he unsafe. And I believe the ticket placed in the field by the Phila delphia convention will he elected in November next. Major Manning made a brief speech in which he gave some statistics showing the previous strength of the different po litical parties in Idaho. He pointed out that while he expected Idaho to go re publican this year, he impressed the ne cessity of vigorous work on the part of the republican party. He was satisfied with the nominees for president and vice-president and predicted a victory for the republican party this fall. The Pierce City District. Fred H. Wood of Pierce City is in the city. He reports very healthful activity in all the Pierce City district. The fact of the constructi 11 of a new road from Orofiuc to Pierce is an enterprise of the most general interest The route of the new thoroughfare is up the divide be tween Ford's creek and Oro Fino creek The distance is only 25 miles and the grades and road bed will l>e good. The citizens of Orofino and the the mining companies of Pierce district are interested in the construction of the road. The work will lie completed in about two weeks. This route w ill make Orofino the nearest railroad point to 1 'terce City. Mr. Wood is sinking on the Golden Gate in a firm body of ore. This prop erty will soon be ready to yield some good ore. Tne four stamp mill is on the ground. The Flintwood company under Man ager Arnold are using their two-stamp mill on $30 ore. They claim to have the value and a good clean-up is promised July ist. The Klomlyke mine is being worked w'lth a full force. A vertical depth of 267 feet was reached last week in this 350 foot tunnel. The ore is constantly im proving with depth. There is ore enough ill sight in the Klomlyke to make the stock of the company worth par value. Ramsey Walker is developing a fine property in the Pierce district. His men are sorting out ore that will bear ship ment to anj - market. It bristles with 1 fine gold. Mr. Walker will either mill at liouie or ship in the near future. The Wiltse property owned by Walla Walla people is showing up a big ledge of good ore. This mine is pretty well developed and its value is assured. The Evening Teller has all the news a at to as is The Platform in Lull of the Republican Party adopted at Philadelphia UPON WHICH WE MARCH TO VICTORY A Strong, Conservative and Con siderate Platform, upon which a Majority Stands Today. The republicans of the United States, through their eliosen representatives, meeting in national convention, looking hack u]K>n an unsurpassed record of achievement and looking forward into a great field of duty and opportunity, and appealing to the judgment of their coun trymen make these declarations: The expectation in ivliit h the American people,turning from the démocratie parly, entrusted with power four years ag republican chief magistrate aml a re publican congress has been met and sat isfied. When the people then assembled at the polls after a term of democratic legislation and administration, business was dead, industry paralyzed and the na tional credit disastrously impaired The country's capital was hidden away and its labor distressed and unemployed. The democrats had no other plan with which to improve the ruinous condition which they had themselves produced tlinu to coin silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. The republican party, denouncing this plan as sure to produce conditions even worse than those from which relief was sought, promiseil to restore prosperity by means of two legislative measures—a protective tariffand a law-making gold the standard of value. j The people by great majorities issued ........... ... «—*» 1 » enact these laws. This commission lias been executed and the republican pledge is redeemed. Prosperity more general .....I .... 1 . .1 , ami more abundant than we have ever I known has followed these enactments, There is no longer any controversy as to the value of any government obligations, Every American dollar is a gold dollar or 3 . . h its equivalent ami American credit stands higher than that of any nation. Capital is fully employed and everywhere labor profitably occupied. No single fact can more strikingly tell the story of what re publican government means to the coun try than this: That while during the whole period of years from 1801 to 1897 there was an excess of exports over im ports of only #383,028,497, there has been in the short three years of the present re publican administration an excess o f ex ports over imports in the enormous sum of f i ,483,738,049. While the American people, sustained r SHOES Men's Linen Shoes, $2.50 to $4 Men's Oxfords, low quartered, Tan and Black $2.75 to $3 White Oxfords for the Nobby Dressers These are the class of \ goods you want for warm ( weather Hastings & Butterfield ft 1 |fvvwvwvvvv 4 by this republican legislation, have been achieving these splendid triumphs in their trade and commerce, they have con ducted and 111 victory concluded a war for liberty and human rights. No thought of national aggrandizement tarnished the high purpose with which American standards were unfurled. It was a war unsought and patiently resisted, hut when it came the American government was ready. Its fleets were cleared for action. Its armies were in the field and the quick aud signal tr iumph of its forces ou land anil sea bore equal tribute to tire courage of American soldiers aud sailors aud to the foresight of republican states mattsltip. To 10,(xx),000 of the human race there was given "a new birth of freedom" and to the American people a new and noble responsibility. We indorse the administration of Will iam McKinley. Its acts have been es tahlished in wisdom and in patriotism, and at home and abroad it has distinctly elevated and extended the influence of the American nation. Walking untried paths and lacing ttnforseett responsibili ties, President McKinley has been in every situation the true American pa tiiot and upright statesman, clear in vision, strong in judgment , firm in ac tion, always iuspiiiug aud deserving the confidence of his countiymen. In asking the American people to in dorse this republican record and to re new their commission to the republican party, we remind them of the fact that the menace to their prosperiti has alw ays resided in democratic principles and no less in the general ineapieity of the dem ocratic party to conduct public affairs. The prime essential to business prosper ity is public confidence in the good sense of the government and its ability to deal "delligeully with all new problems of administration and legislation. That c< lidence the democratic party has never earned. It is hopelessly inadequate and the country's prosperity when democrat ic success at the polls is announced halts and ceases in mere anticipation of demo cratic blunders and failures. We renew our allegiance to the princi ple of the gold standard, and declare our confidence in the wisdom of the legisla tion of the Fifty-sixth congress by which the parity of all of our money and the lability of our currency on a gold basis lias been secured. We recognize that in terest rates are a potent factor in pro ur I' 011 business activity, and for the pur l K)st ' further equalizing anil of further lowering the rates of interest we favor j such monetary legislation as will enable varying needs of the season and of s&rt bor steadily employed and commerce enlarged. The volume of money in eir filiation was never so great per capita as it is today. We declare our steadfast 3 , r I opposition to the free and unlimited coin age of silver.
