DAILY AND WEEKLY C. A. Forksman, Publisher. TELEPHONE 26 Entered at the Lewiston Postoffice as second class mail matter. One year in advauce.......................$2.50 Six months........... 1.50 Three months.................................75 Official Paper of Nez Perce County The Moscow School Scandal. Of course we all regret the row which has disrupted the State Uni versity. Some of the papers are calling upon Gov. Steunenberg to fully investigate the trouble. The governor alone is to blame for the ousting of President Blanton, which act was the direct cause of the dis turbance that now interests the public. The governor visited Mos cow two weeks before the meeting of the board of regents, and all the facts in the case were laid before him. President Blanton presented proofs to the governor to establish malfeasance in office on the part of the local acting members of the executive committee of the board of regents. The governor promised to investigate the matter. He did, of course, give the matter his at tention. The charges of fraud were weighed in his little political bal ances; and it was decided that so called friends were of more service in a political contest than an honest man who held duty above party. He decided that Blanton should go and the men who robbed the state school fund should be supported. He gave out this edict and the State University row, which to the public is inexplicable, followed Will Steunenberg investigate him self? The imps of political darkness may assemble with him in night mare seances and explore the ruins of the State University, but the public will never hear an honest statement fiom the governor or his board of regents. The truth would be too rank to be made tolerable by even a political anticiptic. American vs. English Laborers. During last year the English government called for bids for the construction of a bridge across the Atbara rivet in Egypt, the time allotted being only six weeks American contractors put in low bids while the English contractors bid a higher figure and asked for more time. The contract was let to the Americans. The English workmen were astounded at the completion of the bridge within the short time and at the claim of profit at the low contract price. The English builders sent an agent to this country to learn why and how an American contractor could build a bridge cheaper and quicker than they could. "The engineer reported to those who sent him that the bridge had been built, not only in six weeks, the time specified, but also at a profit, and that it was possible and due to the 'intelligence of the American laborer/ who worked his head and hands together. In investigating the habits, customs, aud homes of the American me chanic and laborer he found that in tue homes of 210 men employed in this bridge work there were re ceived during the week 337 differ ent daily, weekly, and monthly publications, either free or sub scribed for, while the same number of employees engaged at similar work in England took 32 publica tions." Idaho secured great benefits from congress during the last ses sion. Senator Shoup's influence in securing the opening of the Fort Hall reservation and the passage of the Free Homes bill cannot be denied. While Wilson in congress and Heitfeldt in the senate did as good service as any member of the I minority party could have dong, it must be admitted the success of these measures are due to the strength of Senator Shoup, mani fested at all times before the de partments, in committees and on the floor of the senate. In view of these benefits accruing to our peo ple it would be ungrateful not to ac knowledge the senior senator's good service in a substantial way. And it might be dangerous to dispense with this strong lriend at court while we have other vital interests at stake and the same forces to encounter; which we will have for at least four years to come. . Will Steunenberg be endorsed at the Pocatello convention? This is the absorbing democratic question. The governor has made some hor rible sacrifices for votes in that convention. He gave up the best interest of the State University for about two votes at Pocatello. Talk about a birth-right for a flesh pot! The national republican party has done great good for Idaho in the past and it has present ability to pass other good measures. It is not logical to attribute the demo cratic party with what it had no ability to do, nor to expect much in the future that it cannot do.
