One loams, contrary to the Free FVess version, that the Progressive waters at Jerome were not all paci fic. The Now Freedom notes these exceptions and the effective deluge that awaited anyone who got in the way of the prepared program; One of tho resolution demand ed the unconditional repeal of the Federal Reserve bank act. Delegate Hall of Twin Falls at tacked this upon the very sen sible ground that the resolution offered nothing in its place. He thought «ha« if the party is lo be constructive, and if it had noth ing to offer in the place of this policy- if should remain silent. The resolution favoring the election of president and federal judges by direct nomination and election was also hotly opposed. Delegate Hall cicd that the re cord would show that there was more incompetency, dishonesty and corruption among the elect ed judges of the country than there is among the same num ber of appointed judges, He received some support, but the objection was overruled by a de cisive vote. The child labor law paragraph was another that was strongly objected to. First, we have no such problem in Idaho; and sec ond, if wc bad, laano, as a state, should take ie in hand instead of passing the buck to congress to make regulations administered by a bureaucrat at Washington Overruled by -the convention. The paragraph which refers to rural credits, farm loans and the promotion of profitable agri culture. and also the one relating to equal economic« legal and political rights brought out ob jection A delegate from Mini doka county cata'ogurd both mere piffle and meaning nothing and declared the as same meaning less declarations would be found in the platforms of both the old parties, but expressed in better language, and overriden and quickly squel ched He was overruled Pcrhaps it is nod steam trolling but it has the earmarks. Defeating a Poor Bill However much one may sympa thize with American farmers- however much one may belive in remedial re lief legislation one cannot become in dignant because congress failed pass the McNary-Haugen wheat bill For the idea was wrong. to S Many agri cultural organizations «he country over supported it half hoartedly or oppos ed it. Many men w ho went to Wash ington to encourage favorable action by congress on the measure, returned to concede tha« there hotter judgment opposed the ifundamen^' policy in volved in this bill. Southwestern Idaho has never parti, ciilsrty concerned, recognized as only a minor crop fill ing in a general farming plan, other regions have no other And it was from these tremendous wheat area« that most ardent for the bill came. Here wheat is But crop support No one deni« the necessity for help for American wheat farmers Rot the principles and precedent which would have been established by the McN'ary-Haugon bill is contrary is our policy of government I« is dan gerous and congress did well to smother it under an «'alanche of negative votes There is a grave question whether asgislation ever solves economic prob lem*.

President Coolidgc wants it done. Congress probably wants i; done. But the dead hill was not the proper vehicle for real relief No other valid argument has ever been advanced in support of the Me N ary-Haugen measure than the fact that the emergency demanded emer gency measures. And that is dangerous ground. The best policy is never to tread on quicksand.

Which is rather hard on Mr, Dunbar, sidering tha: the remark came from the leading light of Idaho Progrcs siveism. Of course. Mr. McKaig honest when he made that remark. I r. McKaig knows well enough that the average tendency is toward hon esty and that the crook and criminal are exceptions. As a matter of tact— and this is without any personal ference to Mr. McKaig—«he man who spends his time watching for dis honesty in others, usually will stand watching M •ac con was no; M re Out of the Wav Not even a N e\ ada Democratic senator can stop the wheels of jus tice.
