Silver Voters, Wake Up.
We again call the attention of
Democrats and reformers generally !
to the importance of attending the 1
! primary elections on Saturday the
1st of September. The success of
the party depends greatly upon the !
character of the men you select for j
delegates to the nominating oonven
tion. They should be men with j
clean hands and good record—who
will not he influenced by the Steu
nenberg rule or-ruin element that is
already planning to capture the
! Rocky Rar convention for the pur
pose of placing upon the legislative
ticket men who, if elected, would
smilingly ignore the acts of the Po
catello Democratic State Conven
tion relative to the election of a
United States Senator.
Democrats—we mean silver dem
ocrats, not goldbug democrats—be
on your guard and see that no
doubtful man is sent to Rocky Rar
to put up a democratic legislative
ticket in the interest of George L.
Shoup. It is not the open enemy
you must watch; it is the snake in
the grass, the pretender, the de
ceiver, the ass in the lion's skin,
who goes among the people ostensi
bly as an advocate of a principle
but really in opposition to that
principle, nnd withal probably in
the employ and pay of the Ilanna
iies. Those are the kind of fellows
to look after.
There will probably he no Populist
ticket in the field in Elmore county
this fall, neither will there he a
Silver Republican ticket. There
fore we earnestly hope all free silver
men and women and reformers gen
erally who have at heart the welfare
of the nation, state and county, and
are willing to take the test that
they "will vote the Democratic
ticket at the next election," will at
tend the primary elections and cast
their ballots in a good cause.

G. M. Payne, Mountain Home,
Idaho—Dear Sir: In looking over
a recent issue of the Elmore County
Republican I see that some one
from Salt Lake has been going
through your county offering to bet
all kinds of money that McKinley
would succeed himself as president
and could find no takers. This is
an old Republican bluff and don't
go very far in these eastern states.

itself, from a Wisconsin paper, and
I hope you will print it in your
good old Democratic Bulletin, and
tell your Hannaites that if they
want to place their money "out of
sight" to Send it back here and they
can have all the fun they want un
til next November. A Bryan land
slide has commenced here that will
end in canving him into the White
House on top of the biggest ava
lanche of votes ever known.
I do love to sit down and read
your paper each week, and I wish
there were more of your kind po

September, when I hope to meet
you. Respectfully yours,
W. H. McDougall.

offered to bet $1,000 that Bryan v\ ill

$500 that Bryan will carry Wiscon

He will bet $100 even that Bryan
carries Wisconsin by 10,000 votes.
These bets have been posted in V\ is
