California knows the value of
tourist trade and loses no opportu
nity to foster this valuable asset to
draw more millions to the coffers
of her people.
Colorado is in the same boat and
is making extra efforts to attract
the sightseers with the dollars her

bonds in a total of $18,000,000.
Colorado has voted $10,000,000
bonds for a like purpose.
With the matchless scenic beauty
of the Kootenai valley and her trib
utaries-the swiftly-rolling Koote
nai which cuts the county in halves
--thousands would come here, and
will come here, when we provide
for them transportation facilities to
easily and comfortably reach the
many wondrous spots of beauty
which nature has so lavishly be
stowed upon the region.
It is the heighth of folly to let
this golden opportunity pass to en
rich the community with the wealth
of these passing tourists.
Vote for the bonds on the 28th.
Vote for it as a hard-headed bus
iness proposition.
Vote for it to better the condi
tions of yourself and your children,
and because it will make you money
on the investment.

Bulldozing a People.
Arizona will soon vote to elimi
nate from the constitution already
adopted the provision which relates
to the recall of the judiciary., It is
the only way they can gain state=
hood as long as Taft is president,
no matter what their own wishes
are on the qttestion.
When the statehood bill was
pending, a committee of the house
which drafted the bill waited upon
the president and informed him
that the judiciary recall provision
would be submitted alone to the
people for their adoption or rejec
tion, which would relie've both the
president and congress from fur
ther responsibility in the matter
and at the same time express the
true will of the people directly af
Could anything be fairer than
Taft gave the committee to un
derstand that such a bill would not
be objectionable to him, and the
members of the committee, repub
licans and democrats alike, so stat
ed on the floor of the house that
this reflected the view of the presi
The bill passed and the president
vetoed it. What induced him to
change his mind? Why had he
broken faith with the house com
mittee ?
Many people regard Roosevelt as
considerable of a bully, but even
he would not go to the extreme
Taft has exhibited in dealing with
the people of a commonwealth.
While the campaign on the adop
tion of the constitution was pend
ing in Arizona, Roosevelt dropped
in on the debaters and in one of
his characteristic speeches told them
he was opposed to the recall of the
judiciary, "but," he added, "if
you want to adopt it, go ahead;
it's your funeral." They evident
ly wanted it, funeral or no funeral,
for there was an overwhelming vote
in favor of the constitution as it
To get statehood Arizona will be
obliged to vote against the recall.
And they will very probably do so.
Bit it need not be surprising to see
them, after gaining the coveted
goal of statehood, show their con

house by calling another election
and incorporating the recall amend

Quite a number of the oldtimers, those who
have devoted a large part of their lived to the
dcvelopment of Libby, are not taking advantage
of their opportunities to get Libby property
while they can buy it cheap. They are doing
what they did with the timber claims. And the
result will be the same. It will be another hard
luck story. The time to have taken a timber
claim was when you could get one. The time
to buy a lot in Libby is now. It can be bought
cheaper now than ever again. Every lot sold
by tWe Libby Realty Co. has been a good in
vestment to the purchaser. There are big things
in store for Libby---big payrolls and' railroad
construction, and the future is a bright one,
