Be cause persous have drank ques tionable water and still live is no evi dence that they would not have lived l letter ofl pure water. Because one sur vives a dose of poison, it is is no reason that poison is good or harmless. IT IS REASONABLE, if a badly polluted water causes severe and fatal disease, that slightly impure water may slowly undermine the health by being the cause of a host of ailments ami inabilities of body for which the suf ferer finds no apparent cause. When a city is supplied with only doubtfully pure water, no family should he without a private filter. We are Sole Agents for the PASTEUR GERM PROOF FILTER.

JACKSON OR OOODE Or Perhaps "Honest John" Hailey lor Governor—Hawley the Mys. terious. I Pocatello, July 19, 1:30 p. m.—The i democratic side show of the triumviate I gathering was held up all the forenoon 1 by their committee on resolutions. The 1 tie-up is over a resolution condemning j Steunenberg's Coeur 'dAlene policy. | ! j The issue is a very vital oue and the pos- j j sibility of getting together on amicable | terms are remote. The end of the con j troversy is at least not yet in sight. A , report is not now expected before the I evening session. i The populists and silver republicans dre impatiently waiting for tlie result of the conference committee de'iberations. The only progress reported from this committee is the selection of their suli committee as follows: Democrats—Bady, of Kootenai; Reid, of Nei Perce; Martin, j of Ada; Cliatin, of Elmore; Harvey, of Blaine; Pulse, of Idaho; and Averitt, of: Premont. Populists Anderson, of Ada, Samuel, of Shoshone; Dowd of Shoshone, Morgan, of Latah; Jacobs, of Ada; Bal leutine, of Blaine; Weaver, of Fremont. Silver Republicans—Barnett, of Ada; Fogg, of Idaho; Callahan, of Kootenai; Patton, of Bear Lake; Cahorn, of Fre mont; Lake, of Nez Perce; and C. K. Arney of Ada. The Steunenberg faction were given five of the seven members of the sub committee. The question of nominating a senator will probably lie brought before this committee by some turn which, it is feared, will sustain a long contest. After the victory over the Steunenberg forces in tlie seating of the Col. Wood delegation from Shoshone the candidacy of Goode, the favorite of the Dubois men, was pushed with vigor. However, "Or chard" Jackson, who was chairman of the Lewiston convention, trotted hint a close race all along the line. This was the condition last night; but this morning the antis had shifted their affections and "Uncle John" Hailey was a decided favorite. The defeat of Steunenberg is now charged to Jim Hawley. What he had in his bonnet is still an enigma. His po sition on the senatorial issue is not fully understood, aud this fact is causing some speculation today. Yerkes Nominated. LolisvilLK, Ky. July 18,—The republi can state convention yesterday nominated for governor J. Y. Yerkes, of Danville; adopted a platform declaring the issue of the election to be the Goebel election law, and adjourned within' three hours. There was no nomination to be made by the convention except for governor, this year's electiou in Kentucky being an ex traordinary one to fill the vacancy in the governorship made by the death of Wil liam Goebel. The present governor, Mr. Beckham, will hold office only until his successor is elected, when he will again become lieutenant governor. John Y. Yerkes, the nominee for governor, is a lawyer and one of the most prominent republicans in Kentucky. < He is a revenue collector. • Chairman of tlie State Central Commit tee Barnett called the convention to or der and presented ex-Lieutenant Govern or John Marshall, of Louisville, for tem porary chairman. Mr. Marshall's speech dealt largely with Kentucky's political affairs. Judge T. Z. Morrow was elected perma nent chairman, and he aroused the con ventiou to high enthusiasm by a vigorous speech in which he declared that the democratic officials at Frankfort held their offices fiy the same title by which a wolf holds a sheep that it has just taken from the fold." The platform adopted contained three planks, the second and third respectively indorsing the Philadelphia convention | and its nominees and urging the govern ment to protect Americans in China, and the first dealing with the state campaign. ! This is a hitter denunciation of the pres ent democratic administration and the democratic majority in the legislature, and contains the following: "The first duty of Kentucky citizen ship is to re]>cal the Goeliel election law. which is the source and continuing strength of the wrongs done in this state. A vote of confidence neigt November ill men who are all usurpers of office and who have for a year past been acting tel gether to thwart the declared will of the people will he accepted as a vote of con fidence in the election law that is a blot on our statute hooks. The Goebel law must be abolished or republican institu tions must be surrendered." After the adoption of the platform, for mer governor Bradley nominated for gov ernor II011. John V. Yerkes. Governor Bradley said the democrats killed Goebel by passing the Goeliel election law and he discussed at great length the last election in Kentucky. ~ *—*• ' Refufees Fleeing. ■ Victoria, B. C., July 17.—News v[a j the steamship Empress of India says that 1 from all parts of China the refugees are j j flockin jj to t j, e treaty ports and every | s j,jp j s bearing them tojatfütn. Nagssaki, j tj le j )ort al w hich they first arrive, is al- | , r ^adv uncomfortably crowded and Kobe j j s beginning to fill up. Many of them ate j n a destitute condition ami appeals for ai ,i are filling the papers . H j s gen erally felt that while these appeals will doubtless he generally heeded here, it is incumlient upon the foreign missionary i )0ar d, on whom the responsibility for tj,e safil plight of tlieir missionaries rests, j ca bj e unlimited credits to meet the emergency. In his report of the (ight j„g at pientsin, the Japanese commander sa y Sj under date of June 25. "There is no food except rice, and un ] ess communication with Taku is opened j„ j wo wee k s there will tie great destitu tion." An edict published In the Japanese pa pers from the empress dowager tells of the burning of tlie imperial palace by Boxers on June 13. Native papers state that a Boxer plac ar( j posted throughout Nanking reads as j follows: "I, the commander-in-chief of heaven's troops, will march from Peking to Nanking with them shortly. Our principal object is to burn and destroy the churches and chapels, and then the telegraph and postoffices, telegraph sta tions, colleges and schools. The people need not he frightened when they see our arrival here. We are going to drive away the foreigners so as to keep the em pire in peace and comfort. Purchasing provisions for providing us, we will give the maiket price, hut sellers must also charge moderately. We will not destroy yamens and customs; they can lew duty as usual. If any people disobey tliis or der they will be târheaded at once." Henderson's Views. Tacoma, July 18.—General D. B. Hen derson, speaker of the national house of representatives, is in Tacoma. He is on his pay to Los Angeles and is first Visit ing Washington and Oregon, the pnly two states in the Union he had not pre viously visited. Speaker Henderson is averse to discuss ing politics on his present trip, and h denied emphatically tonight that he had ever stated in an interviews or givei) any one the permission to state that he be lieved the United States should secure a port in China or take part in the parti tion of the empire. Speaking of the conditions in that country, be said: "We must wait for in formation, and until full information re garding the reports from China aie re ceived. We have heard that, our minis ter has been massacred and Americans have been killed, but it would be yzrong without definite information to inflame the country and plunge- into war. We have not declared war against China, and it would be wrong to go ahead and com mit depredations against that country. "The necessity for an extra session of congress is not yet apparent. It s too early to tell whether it might be Neces sary to call one. In case it is only neces sary for the president to protect Ameri can lives and to compel observance of our treaty rights, he has that authority, and no session of congress will be neces sary. But if a declaration of war is to be made against China, congres ipust te convened, for that authorities 1 es on con Î jress alone. But, as I said, we must wait or further information and must fix the responsibility for any outrages that may have been committed." out of est i WORK FINISHED The Republican Conven tion Adjourns after Having Nominated AN EXCELLENT STATE TICKET The State Central Committee Meet and Organize for the Coining Campaign — Platform. Boise, Idaho,July 19. 2 p. tn.—(Special ' to the Teller)—T he work of the repub ■ lican convention closed by a meeting of j tlle state central committee this morning, 1 A complete and harmonious organization j was effected. Krank Kenn was chosen as chairman of the state committee. J. It. j West was selected as committeeman for | ^ez. Perce county. The northern dclega j I* 011 left lor home at noon today. THE PLATFORM. The republican party of Idaho in con vention assembled renews its allegiance to the principles of republicanism and declares its unqualified approval of the national platform adopted at Philadel phia, its adherence to the principles rep resented by the otficiul acts of the admin istration of William McKinley and pledges itself to the support of the same. A new and momentous situation having arisen in China since tlie meeting of the national republican convention, we ex press our utmost confidence in the ability and;purpose of the republican party to settle this question upon that high plane of statesmanship which has characterized every act of the'present national admin istration. We are in favor of amending the con stitution oi the United States su as to give to the congressLhe power to more fully regulate and suppress trusts, and we denounce the action of tlie democratic party in the present congress, who by their votes defeated the proposition to submit such an amendment to the people of the United States 'or their ratification. The past history of the republican party and its record in Idaho is a sufficient guaranty that public order will he main tained therein, that life and property will lie protected and obedience to law en forced upon all alike through the estab lished forms of law; that no man shall he deprived of life, liberty or property with out due process of law, nor shall the right of any man to seek and obtain, or con tract for labor or employment in accord ance with law be in anywise curtailed or interfered with. We condemn the policy of the present state administration, whereby it has sought to deprive a large number of hon est settlers in the northern part of the i ^ vv v vyyv » A»vvvv»v»wr y »fl Destroys Bed Bugs v* Cockroaches and all crawling vermin.

W'e condemn the policy of the present state administration in converting the hoards in charge of the various state in stitutions into partisan political machines indirectly, and the republican party pledges itself to place these institutions in tlie hands of those who will conduct them solely for the purpose of the public good and not in the interest of any po litical oganization. W'e remember with feelings of gratitude and pride the gallant and patriotic serv ices rendered to our country by the brave volunteers from Idaho, and glory in their deeds of valor and faithfulness to their call of duty. W'e acknowledge them the support of the republican party in recog nition of their services. W'e endorse the course of lion. George L. Slump as the republican representa tive of the state of Idaho in the United States senate. The republican state ticket gives gen eral satisfaction. Even the democrats of fer no criticism. Undoubtedly it is a strong aggregation representing the liest elements of Idaho's citizenship. There were 110 grudges to revenge or political offenses to Ileal at Boise 011 this octasion. The convention was an example of hon est, earnest men working for the liest in terests of the people and through the people for the party. In view of the very opposite condition prevailing at Ho eatello the republicans are very enthusi astic in the hope of success at the polls next November. War Against Russia. London, July 18.— The Daily Mail publishes a sensational dispatch from St. Petersburg, dated Monday, which assrr s that there is no doubt that China I ns de clared war against Russia. "The Russian press," says the corre spondent, "is restricted to the puhlicatii 11 of official details and tlie publication of any dispatches from the front lias been prohibited. I hear, however, from a re liable source, that the Chinese troops and tlie Boxers seized a Russian transport laden with munitions at Ariagon (on tlie Amur river, about 18 miles from the Re sian frontier), killing almost the entire Russian escort. They next suddenly attacked and bombarded tlie town of Blagovechnek, capital of the Amur gov eminent, on the Amur river. The garri sou held out bravely, hut was finally overpowered. Nearly all perished and the town was burned." « — «■ I.ADIHS, Buy your home-made Bread, Doughnuts, < - a k e * a f l *te Woman s Exchange, tf FOR SALK. Fletcher Hotel. Doing a fair business.
