nr R1 WKDNESDT AND TWICE A WEEK SATURDAY Mountain Home, Idaho, Wednesday, September 23,1908. V olume 19 NAimber 80 DEMOCRATS HOLD FINAL PRIMARIES Hot Fight Between Factions Avert ed by Compromise Ticket of Delegates. The main excitement of the week locally' was the holding of the Democratic primaries for the selection of delegates to the county convention to be held next Monday at Glenns Ferry. The primaries were set for Mon day of this week and for some weeks prior thereto several prospective candidates for the nomination on the Democratic ticket had been very busy, both in Mountain Home and else where. It has so long been the practice of the Garrett-con trolled machine to settle all such rivalries ih a way quite satisfactory to Mountain Home that some of the candidates campaigned on the theory that success in this precinct meant success in the convention. That started the trouble and when the day of holding the primar ies arrived, it was found thatj some of the local politicians,; outlawed from the inner circle, had formed an alliance with influential men in the upper'out country and at the Ferry and; proposed to carry on a fight' in the convention itself that would startle the Mountain Home ring. This becoming known, a series of conferences waj held, in eonsequence of which a compromise list of del egates was named. Presuma Mountain Home Transfer Line CHAS. VAN ORFF, Prop.

In fact the making of the compromise was a distinct victory for the "outlaws," for as matters now stand, the bal ance of power is not with Mountain Home, but is in the I hands of the Glenns Ferry and Atlanta delegates. The next Democratic convention will test to the limit Boss Garrett's far famed diplomatic skill. ENDEAVORERS HOLD BUSINESS MELTING Officers Elected for Coining Year and Other Business Is Transacted.
