Burton French For Congress
House of Representatives,
Washington, D. C.,
October 8, 1918.
To the people of Idaho:
It is now very apparent that I
shall be denied opportunity of
spending much, if any, time in
Idaho before the election. As the
Republican candidate for Congress
from tne First) Congressional Dis
trict, I am compelled to make this
statement and to appeal to the
people of the state generally to sup
port my candidacy.
In large part the people already
understand the situation and I ap
preciate more than I can tell the
many letters that are coming to me
from those I represent telling me
that they propose to give me their
support regardless of party, and
that they approve of my course in
The Congress has been in constant
session since last December, and in
almost constant session since April,
1917. The work of the congress is
• very heavy—legislation that has to
do with human lives has been be
fore us again and again; legislation
that has to do with taxation, with
problems pertaining to the well-be
ing of our dear boys at the front
and those dependent upon them at
home; legislation that has to do
with the welfare of our people-all
these thing are being crowded upon
congress for consideration. No
legislative body since time began
has been called upon to consider the
immense problems of the 65th Con
I would like to return to Idaho
to talk to the people about these
things I cannot return, in all pro
bability, before the general elec
tion. My duty is here. You want
me to do my duty. Important legis
lative matters are pending. Dif
ficult and intricate departmental
matters are coming up every day.
Telegrams, letters, inquiries per
taining to a multitude of questions
are constantly coming in, and you
want me to stay on the job where
my conscience tells me I should
My record as your member of
Congress during these trying times
is an open book.
On the war and everything per
tianing to the war I have felt it my
duty to support and uphold the ad
ministration. I stand for this
I am in favor of Woman Suffrage
and helped pass the resolution thru
the House of Representatives.
I am in favor of National Pro
hibition and helped pass that mea
sure thru the House.
I have labored for the interest of
our farmers and have helped in ob
taining a higher basic price for the
Northwest for this year than was
had last year, and was one of those
in the house who pushed the pro
vision thru giving to our farmers
$2.50 per bushel for their wheat.
I stand for bringing the farmer and
the consumer as closely together as
possible for the mutual benefit of
I supported the Lenroot revenue
amendment in the House and stand
for placing the w„r burden chiefly
upon wealth, upon war profits and
large incomes.
I supported the War Risk Insur

that was adopted by the Congress
fixing the annuity system of com
pensation for insurance to the great
benefit of our soldiers and their
I supported the legislation in the
nature of substitutes for bills in
troduced by myself and others,
granting leave of absence and ex
emption to homesteaders and min
ers on our western lands.
I have tried to do my duty faith
fully in the halls of Congress, be
fore the Committees, before the
Departments, and in handling the
multitude of matters that are hrot
to the attention of your represent
ative. Upon that record and denied
the opportun inty of making person

In making this appeal I know the

gone over the top in the service of
our country in everyway since we
became involved in the war. They
have gone over the top in furnish

agencies in the war where drives

Kendrick still has a good many thousand dol
lars to make up before the fourth liberty loan
drive will go ov er the top. If every man does his
duty the quota will be made up. If not, Kend
rick will go down on the records as having failed
to do what was expected of her. Today and to
morrow will be the "zero hour" for this drive and
it is then that every effort must be called forth to
meet the situation. The home boys in France and
in the training camps will feel proud of the old
town if she raises her quota. They will wonder
why, if she tails.
It is the time when real sacrifices must be ex
pected and those who are not making them to
assist the Government, are failing in their duty
and are not doing their share.
After the banks close tomorrow evening it
will be too late to buy bonds of the fourth liberty
loan. Don't delay, but take your quota now.
Attorney Hoyt Enlists
Atty. G. C. Hoyt departed for
Seattle Wednesday, having enlisted
for military duty. He made ap
plication to enter the officers' train
ing corps in August, but was not or
dered to appear for duty until last
Thursday. He expects to be sent to
Camp Cody soon. Mr. Hoyt has
been a booster of Troy ever since he
located here and in all the different
drives that were made he took an
important part, donating a large
part of his time and labor for
which he received no compensation
whatever. His friends here will
hope that he may be repaid by pro
per advancement in the service up
on his ability and for what service
he has already rendered. —Troy
Red Cross Meeting Today
There will be a meeting of the
Red Cross of Kendrick at the Town
Park this afternoon at 3:00 o'clock,
for the purpose of electing officers
for the ensuing year. It will be an
open-air meeting, which is permis
sable under the new regulations
governing public gatherings. Every
one is urged to attend and take part
in selecting the new officers.
Influenza at Nez Perce
Reports from Nez Perce are to
the effect that there ars over 250
cases of inuenza in that town and
adjoining community. About ten
cases have developed into pneumon
ia and a number of cases are report
ed critically ill. Only three phy
sicians have been available and one
of these is now ill and unable to
render services.
Sow Wheat Too Early
Leonard Davis of Leland believes
that most of the fall grain in this
section is sowed too early. He and
his father have both raised wheat
in the Potatch for a good many
years and Mr. Davis bases his theory
on his own personal observation.
Early sowed fall grain, he believes,
grows too much straw the following
spring. It is generaljy recognized
that heavy straw does not neces
sarily mean a big yield of grain.
He also thinks there is a better op
portunity for late sowed grain to
form strong roots during the early
spring if there isn't to much sub
stance to be supported. He tells of
one instance where he finished sow
ing a field just before the ground
froze up for the winter. The fol
lowing spring when the snow melt
ed, there was apparently nothing
growing on the ground. At har
vest time, however, he threshed 58
bushels of grain to the acre from
this field. A difference in seasons,
of course, might make some differ
ence in the best time to sow the

Compton Sold His Store
The general merchandise store of

nesday to Harry Stanton, who came
up from Walla Walla Tuesday to
close the deal. Mr. Stanton return
ed to Walla Walla Wednesday night
but will return with his family
about the first of November, when
he will open the store and take
active charge of the business.
From Otto Gladen
I suppose all the harvesting is
done where you are by this time.
Hope the beans yielded well this,
year as it takes a lot of them to'
feed us sailors and soldiers.
The people here call us the
"bloody Yanks" and they think all
the Americans came from Lixie.
We arrived at a good camp here
and certainly were surprised to find
a bunch of our old pals from San
Diego, who had preceded us here.
They were glad to see us and gave
us a real welcome.
The people here are interesting
and sociable. I like to talk to
them about the war.
The crops are almost all in the i
shock here and sure look good, but
the fields are all small. I saw a
farmer and his daughter hauling
bundles from the field in a two
wheel cart with one horse hitched
to it. That is the way they all haul
their grain to-the stack. It is sel
dom two horses are seen worked to
gether here.
The trains are about a thousand
years behind ours. We call them
the toy railroads. The trains run
just behind our barracks at all
hours of the night.
We are going to London for a
little excitement and amusement
I got seven letters yesterday.
Some of them traveled 10,000 miles
to find me but I got them at last.
I have a permanent address now
and my mail will come straight
through without delay. *
There is a picture show at camp
tonight. Last night there was a
concert given by a number of ladies
from New York.
We have plenty to eat and a good
place to sleep so we are all happy
and are getting along fine.—Otto
Gladen, U. S. Naval Air Station,

Potlatch Highway District
At a meeting of the Nez Perce
county commissioners at Lewiston
Monday the returns from the elec
tion, held at Leland, Oct. 5, were
canvassed. The vote was over
whelmingly in favor of forming a
Higftway District, the returns show
ing 75 in favor and 6 against creat
ing the distict. The board adopt
ed a resolution declaring the dis
trict created. The governor will
appoint three commissioners to gov
ern the new district. As a rule
this appointment is nothing more
nor less than an indorsement of the
commissioners selected by the dis
trict itself.
There are about 41 sections of
land embraced in the new highway
district. The southern boundary is
the north boundary of the Clear
water highway district and the east
ern boundary is Bedrock creek and
the range line between townships
1 and 2. The north boundary is
Latah county line and the west
boundary the Potlatch creek. On
the east there are eleven townships,
including Southwick and locality,
which lie between the new distict
and the North Fork highway dis
trict of Clearwater county. It is
thus noted that practically all the
territory north of the Clearwater
in Nez Perce and Clearwater coun
ties is now organized into highway
Soon Announce Numbers
The auditors of both Nez Perce
and Latah counties received the
master key of the drawing niade at
Washington, fixing the order num
bers of the men under the recent
registration, ar.d within a few days
each man will know his number.
While the call under present regu
lations will apply only to men 19
to 36 years, inclusive, the instruc
tions provide that the order num
bers for each of the registrants be
given. The work is now being
rushed as fast as possible but as it
entails extensive clerical work it
will not be completed for several
