One noticeable in-'
Lincoln and Roosevelt typo of Ameri
canism. "under one flag, in one lan
guage, without entangling alliances,
w ith malice tt ward none, and with
charity for all." I have no sympathy
with men who advocate violence, sa

I have all faith In our national con
stitution, and I do not believe in
amending either, in spirit or letter, by
treaty, congressional or legislative
meats should lie made only in the man-.*
ner provided for in the constitutions
The recent attempt to amend the
spirit and intent of our state const i
tution, wherein it provides for "boards
of control" of our state's business and
/resources, by substituting therefor ap
pointive "centralized" or "cabinet"
control by the governor, without dis
cussion or vote of the people, is a
spts-ies of radical usurpation of power i
that plainly points ibe way to a dan
gerous and extravagant dictatorship j
of public affairs, eliminating the
sontial safeguards intended by our I
Idaho lias too many millions of dol
lars involved to experiment with any
form of business control which, l>e
forc its enactment, was never not forth
in any political party platform nor
was ever discussed by the statt' press
or by the people. Noth withstanding
the many eneomiiims appearing in the
press regarding the so-called "cabinet <
form of state government," 1 am im
liejlt'd by indisputable facts to state I
j that this new- government is in
opinion not only less efficient, than our|
constitutional "bond'd form of state
government." but. it is more expensive
anti Infinitely less secure.
Idaho inis tremendous interests in
