MOSES N. WEBB IN OPEN
LETTER CONDEMNS N. P L.
Wt iser American.
M. N. Webb, the well known Mann
Creek farmer and former member of
the Idaho legislature, is out in an open
• own principles
and gave their
letter taking issue with the Non-Par
tisan league and advising his fellow
farmers to hive nothing to do with it.
His letter is addressed to the "Loyal
Democrats of Idaho," and is as follows:
"Democrats, loyalty is one of the
great virtues, and is in great demand
at the present time. He who is dis
loyal at this time will not live long
enough to get rid of the stain.
"We are to be put to the test as
never before. Will. we as a party
prrve true? I hope we will, and you
will. Remember the wilful twelve.
Don't be disloyal.
"'In 1912 when the Republican party
were dissatisfied with a steamroller
ticket, they put out another ticket and
called it Progressive. They headed it
with as loyal a man as lived and fol

THE MASK OFF.
j The grinning skeleton of anarchy in
its most violent form is always found
whenever the mask of patriotism is
torn off the Non-Partisan leaders. Here
in Idaho they pose as democrats. In
North Dakota they stole the organiza
tion of the Republican party and use
it in the same manner as they use the
Democratic party in Idaho.
When Ray McKaig came to Idaho
last winter he stated that he was at
that time state secretary of the Repub
lican party in North Dakota. Here is
a resolution recently passed by the
Non-Partisan organizations in Het
