Be cause persous have drank ques tionable water and still live is no evi dence that they would not have lived better 011 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 hv being the cause of a host of ailments and inabilities of body for w hich 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. 1 m We are Sole Agents for the PASTEUR GERM PROOF FILTER. Gill and See Them Work 1he CASH HARDWARE STORE WINNING TICKET Ex-Governor McConnell Gives a Brief Sketch of Kcpublican Nominees. BRAINS AND INTEGRITY With Recognized Abilty to Fill the Positions Aspired to Make Their Election Sure. : j ! I j j I : j I j j ] I ; ! Ex-Governor \V. J. McConnell, who is stopping in the city a few days on busi ness, is very enthusiastic over the chances of the republican ticket. When seen by a reporter he said: "The republican ticket will be elected. For congressman John T. Morrison is an educated gentleman, a lawyer by pro I Cession, vigorous in mind and body. I predict that his career in the house will I be a brilliant one, and I hope, if such J ! proves to he the fact, as I have no doubt I it will, that he will he continued there. One of the great mistakes made by the young states in the west is that of chang ing their representatives in congress, Al though the senate ranks the house, the continual return of members of the latter body by the older states in the east is an honor equally as great as election to the senate, and those states benefit thereby. "Drew W. Standrod, the nominee for governor, was formerly a resident of Oneida, but now lives in Pocatello. Mr. j Standrod was a member of the constitu- ! tional convention in Idaho, in which j body I first met and learned to respect 1 him. He has been successful in every- I thing he has undertaken. He has been J successful as a practical lawver and lias I been judge of the Fifth judicial district, ! serving w ith distinction to himself and to j his party. A story has been circulated concerning him that, while he was hold ing court in 1'ocatello, he reprimanded a j witness for appearing before himself and jury in very greasy overalls. The wit ness, disregarding the court's summons, came in very late, and the judge ex cused him. It is argued that this act on the part of the judge will weaken him as 1 a candidate for the position to which he is now nominated. How little truth | there is in this is evidenced by the sup- ] port he received in '98 when he was u candidate for the position of supreme ! justice. For the benefit of doubters in i the republican party and to dispel the il lusions of democrats and populists, I give the following figures from the abstract of votes cast in the state of Idaho for the offices of congressman, supreme judge I and governor in the general election held in November, 1898. At that elec tion W. B. Heyburn, republican nominee for congress, received 13,056 votes; Mr. j Moss, candidate for governor, received 15,794 votes, while Judge Standrod, for supreme judge, received 14,393 votes. Judge Standrod received 599 votes more than Moss, and 1,337 more than Hey burn. I11 Bannock county, Standrod's own home, where it is asserted he will be defeated owing to the overall episode, Mr. Heyburn received 684 votes. Mr. Moss 729 votes, and Mr. Standrod 781 votes. So, as will lie seen, the impres sion which prevails in the midds of some individuals that Mr. Standrod is unpopu lar in his own county, is eliminated by these records of the elections of 1898. In my own county of Latah, Mr. Moss re ceived 1,696 votes, Mr. Heyburn 1,657, ond Mr. Standrod 1,657. I" Shoshone county Mr. Moss received 733 votes, Mr. Heyburn 734, and Mr. Standrod 827. No j further argument should be needed as to the standing of Judge Standrod in his own, or in fact any other county in the state. "The nomination of Mart Patrie, a res ident of Fremont county, is a practical illustration of the trite saying, 'While the light holds out to burn, the vilest sin ner may return.' ('ertaiuly Mart was one ol the vilest and most determined opponents of the republican party four years ago, but lie came forward to the mourners' bench in due time, ami under the prayerful influence of all us, will, I predict, henceforth be one of the iooo caudle power lights of the republican party. He is an able accountant, a man whose judgment was never kijown to err but once, and as he will be associated (luring the coming two years with men on the state hoard who will have the in terests of their constituents rather than their own personal aggrandizement at heart, he will find more congenial com panionship in the opportunity he will have to exercise his ability in the inter est of the state than has been his lot for some time past. "Lieutenant J. Harry Syms should he i elected auditor, as he was nominated by ! acclamation. He left Iws home and tmsi- j ness to take up arms for his country and ! liared his breast to the bullets of the en- ! etnies of the United States in Manila. | Those who shared the dangers and hard- ! ships of that campaign hear witness to his gallantry and bravery as an officer; | those who love their country should de- j monstrate that fact by the respect and and support they give its defenders." Miss Jessie Reilley, candidate for school superintendent, is the daughter of Comrade Reilly, who is well known all over the state. She is a highly educated lady, whose heart is in her profession of teaching Her election to the posi tion of superintendent of public instruc tions will reflect credit upon the judg ment of the voters of Idaho and will add materially to the efficiency of our public schools. "The selection of Robert Bell of Cus ter ' wbo is tlle candidate for inspector of J mines ' is a ver .v fitting one, and will un I questionably be the means of directing investors to the state of Idaho. Mr. Bell is a metallurgist, as well as a practical miner and a spicy and comprehensive writer in his line. He was unanimously indorsed by his county. He knows how a mine should he worked and will insist that proper precautions for the safety of the miners be taken. "Those who know Geo. K. Gray best respect him most. He came to the con vention with the entire strength of his j count >' behind him, and although a very ! stron K nlan pitted against him, received j tlle nomination and at the coming elec 1 ^ on will receive the united strength of I b ' s P ar *J'• J "With this review of the candidates, I I close by saying that I believe no ! more deserving or stronger ticket was j ever placed before the people of the state of I( lalio. With such men as McKinley and Roosevelt to lead the van, we will elect the ticket from top to bottom. This ticket represents not only ability to per form the functions of office in an honest and credible manner, but it represents that which is important aliove all—the integrity of our nation, its honor, and its da 8> l°y a Ry to those whose lives went out in the recent war with Spain and | those who are daily watering the fields of ] the Philippines with their blood in their efforts to suppress the rebellion of pro gres* tliere." i ^ THE CITY IN PARAGRAPHS ®---- . -------- — -- - ---® A.

DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Many Living Witnesses Testify at the Preliminary Hearing on Death of Frank Brown. The preliminary hearing in the case of the state of Idaho versus Kd Beck and Kittie Ross charged with the alleged murder of Frank Henderson at the Hotel I)e l'rance on Saturday night or Sunday morning last, was called by Justice of the Peace A. C. Sweet at 8 a. nt. today. At torney F. Danford appeared for the state and Attorney R. S. Anderson and John Green for the defendants. The first wit ness called by the prosecution was W. II. Dayison. proprietor of the Hotel De France, who testified to the discovery of the deceased in a dying condition, of the calling of Drs. Povnter and Kulbach, and of their efforts to revive the dying man. He also stated that the hour in which he went to the room of the de ceased was between 145 and 2 o'clock He also stated that he had gone to the hotel register to see who had occupied the room and learned that some one reg isteringas Wilson and wife of Colfax, returning to the room in company with the night clerk Mr. Mack Gammon, they found the deceased in a gasping position lying on the bed. He stated that Mrs. Davison came into the room and advised sending for a doctor, as she thought the man was dying, this witness says he did, to which Dr. Poynter and then Dr. Kül bach responded. Here Attorney Anderson cross-examin ed the witness in regard to how long they were in the room, to which he stated one hour and a half to two hours. Under cross examination he stated that the deceased died lietween 3 and 4 o'clock, that besides finding half a bottle of beer in the room, $70.35 in money was also ' found, being $50 in greenbacks under the pillow and $20.35 in gold* and silver i in his pants pocket, the pants lying on the floor near the foot of the bed. After stating that he did not know at what time the deceased registered the witness was excused. At this point the prosecution called Mack Gammon, the night clerk at the Hotel De F'rance, who testified as to his assigning the deceased room 3, between the hours of 10:30 and x 1 p_ m., and at his request showed him the location The deceased having registered as Wilson and wife, Colfax, and left the hotel say ing he was going for his wife who was at i i 5 wwvvv>nyv»^>vryyvy w vyyyyt THE OWL : DRUG STORE —- IS THK PLACK FOR— ICE CREAM SODA WE USE PURE CREAM Wholesale and Retail ^ ^ ed Edwards, handed him the money At tllis P° int Edwards was ordered sub the doctor's office up town and would be back later, lie testified that he did not see the deceased again until called by Proprietor Davison lietween i;,go and 2 a. m . to assist in waking the occupant of number 5 who seemed to he making much noise snoring not permitting other guests to sleep. He said: "1 did not think he was snoring and thought he must be sick. I was sent for the doctor and stayed directly around the room until his death, some time be tween ,3 and 4 o'clock a. m." For tilt- defense Atty. Anderson cross examined the witness not bringing out anything new. Atty. Danford asked a few more questions and excused the wit ness. The state next called Philip Hering, proprietor of the W. S. restaurant, who testified as to seeing defendant, Beck, come in with deceased between n and 12 p. 111. and meet defendant, Kittie Ross who had already been there, and that they occupied a compartment, ordered supper and indulged in a bottle of wine, the amount being paid with a $20. hill. He testified that they were there prob ably three-quarters of an houF, and he never saw them after they left the restau rant until the coroner's inquest. Attor ney Anderson cross-examined witness, who stated that they did not all three come together to the restaurant, that Kitty Ross had been in ten minutes be fore, being joined by deceased and de fendant. He stated that lie did not know whether deceased was intoxicated or not, and further stated that he did not know who paid for the meals, as the waiter, peoned by the prosecution, but could not be found as he had left on today's boat Danford here interposed a ques tion to witness as to the appearance of deceased'111 regard to his health, which was objected to by Attorney Green.
