fiubioription $100 par Annum PIOIEEB PAPEB OF KOOTENAI 00 8 D. TAYLOB, Editor and Proprietor Morrison Trusts the People The writer was able to observe a good deal in lelation to Governor John T. Morrison at St. Louis, and in our judgment he is the most serene man in the state whose in terests art at stake in the cam paign th>* year. The governor does not allow politics to interfere in any manner with his duly to the public ser His business in St. Louis was purely official—to see that Idaho matters at the great Expo sition were in keeping with the im portance of the commonwealth of which he was governor, was there attending to his duties, conscious that a convention of his party was being held at Pocatello at which there would be slate ma kers who would seek to overthrow him. If is not to be inferred, how ever, that Governor Morrison is merely drifting with the tide. in Idaho knows better what vice. And he Mo man he is about and wtiere he is al. He has served the people and rests h.s case with them At the Inside Inn on night the writer remarked: "Governor, I am surprised to see you here at this time. I thought you would be at Pocatello. "Oh, no," remarked the Govern or, "the people will lake care of my campaign. Morrison has faith in himself, born of a knowledge that he has given the state a clean, honest and able administration Ht Las served the people rather than the poli ticians. The people are mighty and must prevail. The little show of opposition de veloped against the Governor has bid the effect »if putting the people * on their guard. i? South Idaho Sentiment. In spite of the clamouring of hungry Jpoliticians the renomina tion jf Mwrnson at Moscow by ac clamation is tne natural and logi cal outcome when one considers that none of his opponents have any visible strength nor ar.y claim on the honor. On the other hand Mormon is bacKed by the interests of the state, by the respectable men and women who admire an otfijial who ha* tbe character and moral courage to wilh-tand ti e temptation to use his high office for the enrichment of "practical" politicians. When it is remember ed, among other achievements, that through his efforts tiearl / a million dollars belonging to the suimoun schools and state institutions of learning that had been idle in the state treasury has been invented and is now earning about $50,000 annually, it will be seen why he the choice of farmers, merchants and the business interests who loot the state's expenses. He has stoo boldly for w hat is right, ar.d as result Idah > has a state adiniiu stratum that is ahne reproach an a sou rce ot pride to its citizens. The politic iuns w ant a governor who will give them the "glad band" and a piece of pie, but the tax-pay ers of the state want an honest and businesslike governor. Washing ton county republicans are for Mor nson, anti will bo at Moscow with a solid d- legation in W eiser World. hi* behalt The Democrats of Idaho have structed for Hearst for President In this they diJ not follow the lead D-ib »is wh » h «d an of Sen itor ounced himself lor Parker. ii A POPULAR OCEAN BEACH Many from the Interior are Planning to Spend their Vacation ta the Sea Shore Hundreds from Eastern Oregon and W ashmgton spent their vaca tion at (Long) Beach, Washington, last summer, and it is safe to say that this popular resort of the North Pacific Coast will be visited by many more this year than ever within its history. The change from a high and dry interior alti tude to the sea level is most bene ficial. The trip on the Willamette and Columbia rivers, out of Portland, is one long to be lemembered, the usual heat of a summer afternoon being tempered by a gentle breeze freighted with the aroma of pine trees and seasoned with salt sea air. The scenery includes much that is beautiful. Leaving Portland on of the O. R, & N. Co.'s palatial one river steamers (the T. J. Potter be ing queen of river flyers), the ex 8ween around the bend is made— five snowcapped peaks, Mt. Hood, Mt. Adame, Mt. Saint Helen, Mt. Rainier and Mt. Jefferson looming into view—a sight worth traveling thousands of miles to see. On down tbe picturesque river, past villages, sawmills, fishing fleets, salmon can neries, perpendicular basaltic bluffs, and pretty side hill farms the boat pursues its way. The majestic sweep of the river is awe-inspiring. Gradually the shores grow far ther apart and, scarcely realizing that the 5 hrs. have been consumed in making the trip, the boat steams along side the wharf at Astoria. One hour from Astoiia, through ihe famous fishing waters of the Columbia, past scores of salmon traps and nets and as many while winged fish boats, lands the pas sengers at llwaco, on Baker's Bay. where connection for beach points is made with trains of the llwaco Railway & Navigation Co., whose cars stand on .the wharf awaiting the steamer. North Beach, where the surf bathing is unexcelled, al | 1 iw tide is from 200 to 400 feel I wide, twenty-three miles long and j so compact that a carriage or w agon scarcely leaves a trace upon it.— Scattered along the beach are hun dreds of cottages and hotels in which summer life is an unceasing round of pleasure from the opening until the closing of the season. I he much dreaded ''Resort Mosquito" is unknown and no venernous snakes or insects are found, mometer rarely goes above 80 de grees in July or August, but light overcoats, lues morning and even l 1 The ther mg and blankets at night are com for table during the season. Rates for accommodations at Noith Beach are reasonable and Al Eu vaiy to suit the visitor, ropean hotels and lodging houses rooms range from twenty-five cents to one dollar a day, al restaurants, meals run from twenty-live to filly cents; and at the Amtricau-plan hotels the charges range from one dollar a day to two dollars and up ward. Dozens of delightful si»le trips may be taken from the beach into a country of wild a».d picturesque beauty, quiet and secluded among mils and forest, with hunting and fishing in native haunts; to the U. 8. life sav.ng stations and light houses, cranberry farms, oyster beds, salmon fishing grounds and canneries.

There was promise of a scrap over school trustee in this district last Monday, but the candidacy of Byron H. Walker was presented and seemed to satisfy all and his election was unanimous. A special tax of 6ve mills was also voted which will enable the trustees to establish a fourth room which is greatly needed to relieve the crowd ed condition of the school. It is a most satisfactory condition that harmony prevails in school matters. St. Lotis Fair..-Rates and Dates. The O. R. & N.—Union Pacific: j The World's Fair route.
