WfilWESDY AlfDI A WEEK SATURDAY Mountain Home, Idaho, Wednesday, September, 30 1908. Volume 20 Number 2 MOUNTAIN HOME WELL REPRESENTED Democratic Convention at Glerm Ferry on Monday Makes Strong Bid for Lo cal Votes As predicted in the last issue of the Republic&n, slate break ing was the order of the day at the Glenns Ferry convention Monday. One of the victims was Glenns Ferry's choice for sheriff, Rudolph Larsen, who was left at the post in his in tended race against Frank Boyd of Mountain Home. This was expected to be one of the most exciting contests in the con vention, but Boyd won without being compelled to show his strength. Both names were placed in nomination and then, at the psychological moment, a letter from Judge Perky was' read, which stated that, in his opinion, Mr. Larsen was not a citizen of the United States and was therefore ineligible for the office. Mr. Boyd was therefore nominated by acclamation. The slate was again broken when Sheriff Fountain slipped onto the ticket for assessor, in place of Frank Hobbs, who was con ceded to be the choice of the party and a large part of the Republican party as well. How this result was accomplished is not generally known, but some of Hobb's friends, who were on the ground claim that this oc curence is proof that Garrett's hand has not lost its cunning. The full ticket named is as follows: Senator, Carl A. Dav is of Garnet; representative, Charles B. Faraday of Moun tain Home; Sheriff, Frank C. Boyd of Mountain Home; As sessor, Walter W. Fountain of Mountain Home; Treasurer, Frank M, Hobbs of Mountain ^Home; County Attorney, Leslie B. Green of Mountain Home; Surveyor, Samuel G. Rhoades ^of Mountain Home; Superin tendent of Schools, Lillie B. Wertz of Mountain Home; Commissioners, Frank P. Ake of Mountain Home, John J. Mc Ginnis of Cold Springs, George P. Butler of Pine. The remain ing places on the ticket were }eft vacant by the convention, but the Central Committee was authorized to fill them later on. As most of the offices were filled with candidates from Mountain Home, there is very general satisfaction locally with the general line-up, but what the outside precincts think of it can be better determined af ter the election. The conven tion demonstrated one thing very clearly—that Garrett is still in the saddle and pretty | much in control of the party. At least all of his friends were taken care of in a more or less satisfactory manner. It is gen erally believed, however, that - Mountain Home Transfer Line CHAS. VAN ORFF, Prop.

As a further token of esteem, Garrett was again in stalled as chairman of the Cen tral Committee, with full power to name his secretary and treasurer.

Jerome Carty, a prominent New York and Philadelphia at torney, has arrived in the city on his way to inspect the Bona parte mine near Rocky Bar, which he has owned for more than 30 years. He is registered at the Idunha. Mr. Carty will be remembered as having made a visit to this section in the year 1894 with Samuel Nordheimer German consul to Canada, whose broth er, Captain Nordheimer, discov ered the Bonaparte. Mr. Carty was in Boise again in 1892. He has been one of the speakers of the Republican party, having taken a part in every campaign since the second election of General Grant. Mr. Carty has leased the Bon aparte to the Gold Belt Mining compnny and tuken provisional control of the entire property. Asked to express an opinion as to the national election, Mr. Carty replied that Bryan would be defeuted, and "have fewer electoral votes than he had in 1896, when the enticing free sil ver craze of 16 to 1 came near deluding the people They now know him and will relegate him to where he belongs, at home at Fairview, Neb , editor and prop rietor of the Commoner, through which he can continue to regale the people with his Utopian ideas of government control of railroads uud banks ami tell the judges of ths supreme court of the United States what he does uot know of the constitution and the law of injunction.
