The returns from the Republican primaries in Kootenai county show that Charles L. Heilman, chairman of the county central committee, has won a great victory, and is sus tained and vindicated by his fellow Republicans. The attempt of the sorehead ele ment to ki^k him out of tne chair manship has met with a miserable failure. In his home town, Rath drum, where his manhood as well as his political record was attacked his Republican neighbors sustained him by the magnificent vote of 322 to 36, Ac Standpoint, where a ter rible attack was led against him, he won 3 to 1. Hope, Priest River. Post Balls, Laclede, State Line, Port Hill and Athol all go strong for Heitman, and even Coeur d'Alene swung into line. THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY FIGHT Democratic l/otes Carry the Day for the Anti Heitman Ticket. The hardest fought political bat tle that ever took place in Bonners Ferry was fought out here last Monday at the Republican pnmar The anti Heitman woikers ac xmiplished the result by whole aaie voting of Democrats and other illegal voting; by the improper nee of money, and by the spreading ot false reports. The latter might pass bui the other meth 'ds luu not be justified either in morals or in law. The "bull pen" fabrication was aiso urged against the Heitman ticket with effect. There is no question as to what would have been the result it the leg. fhe issue finally settled down to a '"Heitman" and an "anti-Heit man" proposition. The individuali ty of the candidates for delegates seems to have cut but little figure as there wera not to exceed six scratched tickets. The result was close. S. D. Tay lor, editor of the Hkraud, was de feated on the face of the returns bv five voles and no one on the ticket with him fell name than five votes behind his total. Democratic voting alone had been shut out. Copeland The weather Pas bem very warm j at Copeland for some lime. The pleasant smile of Chas. Fischer has been visible here for F s j a few days. It is rumored around the corner of Main street that he wanted to capture the apple at Valley piecinct as delegate to the Republican convention, but Geo.K. Andrews being about i 4 ft et 21 Every precinct in north Koote nai elected Heitman delegates ex cept Bonners Ferry, where Heil man delegates were snu< out by Democratic votes and other im proper methods. The last returns show that Heit man will have 50 votes to 19 votes out of the precincts heard from, with 14 votes not reported, and the letter will increase his lead. The success of Mr. Heitman means that a solid delegation will go Irom Kootenai to support Gov ernor John T. Morrison for reelec tion, for it was a part of the anti Heitman program to send an anti Morrison delegation to the state convention to down an able and honest governor who had put an end to state house graft and the bundling away of timber on our state school lands. Tnat the anti-Heitraan schemers intended to carry out a system of fraud was evident from the start. The Heitman ticket received splendid support. The ladies voted for it, two io one. The men from the saw mill came in four to one, but all this could not offset the Democratic and other il legal votes A majority of the ranchers were arrayed against the Heitman ticket, but they are in no wise accused of being connected with any job. The false charges against Mr. Heitman had been hammered into them until they be lieved them, and if they believed them we ate frank to sa / that they voted right. VV* shall show up some of these charges in future is sues, Perry primary was a The net result of the Bonners waste energy. On one side the delegation that might have accomplished something for Bonners Ferry was shut out of the convention by fraud. On the other side, the delegation that received certificates of election will go to the convention under cloud and allied with a weak and discredited minority which has - ' made itself offensive beyond en durance. inches, was to* long in the. reach.

All It is He It was some time befoie aid could be summoned and it was three quarters of an hour before the body was recovered, although everyone turned out as soon as the news spread and gave all assistance possible, W. A. Alexander finally found the body. All efforts to re vive the boy proved of no avail. The funeral took place Wednes day forenoon.

A large crowd of people gathered at John Manes' ranch nsar Katka to have dinner end celebrate the Fourth in a quiet way. The picnic grounds were located in a pretty place among the pines, where a large table was made that all might eat at the same time. A small house covered with ever greens was erected close by, making a cool, pleasant place to sit. The morning was spent in games, etc , the children swinging, shoot ing firecrackers and making as much noise as possible. . About one o'clock the tables were prepared and everyone helped themselves to the good things in true picnic style. Dancing, cards and other amuse ments were eaj lyed during the a fie. ma n in the evening strawberries, cream and cake was served. Later in the evening while some were dancing and others were grouped about the yard with the children, a deer came out of the woods and stood listening to the music. Everyone made a rush to see our four footed guest, but it be came frightened and disappeared in the woods. Aft« r dark we enjoyed a fine displiy ot fireworks. D. A.C. Card of Thanks.
