F. hall for the night of the 4th in order that a free pub lic bail may be given, and snnounceo a Grand Harvest ball on the night of August 19, to which all are invited to attend. THE THIRST FOR POSITIONS Causes Some Politicians to Try to Misrepresent Certain Republicans. Perhaps no better proof of the stalwart qualities of Chairman Heitman is needed than the fact that his opponents are resorting to every trick that falsehood can in The latest is an effort to , make it appear tiial the county . chairman is opposing Senator Hey burn. On the contrary the rela lions of the two gentlemen are en tirely cordial. If the. opposition to Heitman have a case against him they ought to be able to slate the truth once in a while. Ik. this connection we wish to state that it was the editor of the Hkrai.d who called upon Senator vent. Heyburn at PwaUllo, in the last campaign, and secured from him a promise to make an address to the voters of Bonners Ferry, and in Bonners introducing him to a Ferry audience we referred to him most distinguished "Idaho's " And at ths time we were as son performing these acts, the editor of the Bonners Feiry Progress wai advocating Herr Most principles up and down th>* Kootenai Valley. The Hekai.p knows as live fact, and "first handed" at jkosi that, that Senator Heyburn has the utmost contempt for some of the opponents of Chairman Heil man. The Hkkad agrees that Senator Heyburn is. making an able sena tor. We have been pleased to y . , specify hi8 accomplishments almost week f y But ^ hen the Hkkald and its editor was putting forth every energy in their power in the last campaign to elect a Republi can ticket and make the election of a Republican U. 8. senator possible the one that now would like to ride in that Republican U. S. Sen r-tor's band wagon was sulking in his tent and absolutely retused to assist the Republican Club in Bonners Firry and threw cold water on the Republican ticket. These are indisputable facts. Let it not be forgotten that it was under the brilliant leadership of Chairman Heitman that this county was redeemed from a fusion majoiily of 400 to a Republican majority of the same size—and that, too, without the help at Bon ners Ferry uf the peddler of so ciulutic literature or some of those who now use his sheet as a vehicle with which to assail Republican leaders. What Bonners Ferry Secured. The last issue of the Bonnern Ferry Progress contains a vicious attack on the Republican admin istration of Kootenai county, coupled with a personal attack on what it is pleased to term a "Tay lor Delegation." In reply it is first necessary to note what the Bonners Ferry Pro gress is: It is an alleged "Inde pendent Newspaper," whose edi torial utterances are dictated by a Republican who is trying to down the so-called Taylor delegation in Bonners Feiry. No man is worthy of a moment's consideration from Republicans who would have pub lished such a false and malicious attack on the Republican admin istration They ask. What has Bonners Ferry obtained in the last two yeais? Bonners Ferry has had an ap propriation of $40 ) for the road leading from the town limits up the hill towards Moravia, The present Republican administration is spending $1600 on the road from Bonners Ferry to Crossport. The present Republican adminis tration appropriated $1600 to es tablish better ferry facilities across the Kootenai at Bonners Ferry. The fact that the water came up before the work was completed and took out some of the unfinished work before it could be secured will not condemn the commissioners when it is recalled that others, lumbermen for instance, have mis judged the Kootenai, and lost thousands of dollars. The ferry improvement work will be completed, and it will prove a blessing to the people of the North Side, who will resent any attack on the commitsioners who have honestly endeavored to im prove their facilities for crossing the river. In addition to the above there was $350 expended on the Moyie bridge, besides other roads and bridges too numerous to mention. "What has Bonners Ferry got in ths last two years?' answer is, every public improve ment the citizens have petitioned Another . for. And yet men mad with thirst for power and ollice attack auch a record! The politicians who are trying to d iwn what they are plïased to style the Taylor dele gation have great heads! The so called Taylor delegation two years ago consisted of H. L. Medbury, E L. Whitney, Thus. J. Jones and S. D. Taylor, They ob tained from the convention the favors they were elected to secure —the nomination o| E L. Whitney for sheriff and D^. 1. A. Bishop for coroner And they assisted in nominating a ticket which, under tho chairmanship of Charles L. Heilman swept thf county by a majority surprising even Republi cans themaelves. If it is not impertinent to ask, what did the opponents of the so called Taylor delegation ever se cure for Bonners Ferry, either in two years or during their whole career? —Ladies, it will pay you to visit our store almost daily durng June, as we will be malting daily sweeping reductions in almost ev erything in the dry goods line.
