Political Partisans.— Most men hold
political convictions, and we admire
them for it. It is part of human nature
for men to believe in something, and
they are the better for it. The average
citizen believes that certain political
tenets are right, and being honest in
this belief, he is a partisan. Partisans
are invariably controlled by convictions
and not by policy. To such men tbe
"mugwumps" stands upon mental
ground upon which no honest
stand and preserve his self respect.
Your average partisan accords to every
man the right to differ from him, but
his opponent, to secure his respect]
must differ from principle.and not from
policy or other selfish motives. The
partisan in the discharge of political
duty knows no friend or foe ; he is not
moved bv passion or swayed by preju^
dice, and he believes that no greater
calamity could overtake our country
than for people to become too ignorant
to have positive convictions about govJ
ernment, or too cowardly to avow them.
For our part we admire these intense
partisans, because of the information
they disseminate about governmental
affairs among their neighbors,
republic is safe so long as partisan
exist, and with them our free institu

FROM KOOTENAI FOI NTY.
Rathdrum, Idaho, Oct. 1. 1880.
Editor Free Press. —Our present and
future congressman Hon. John Hailey,
Judge Caton and W. T. McKern ad
dressed the citizens of this place last
evening to a largo audience. Every
body turned out to listen to "honest
John," who "does not part his hair in
the middle" nor does not think he is a
masher. Very different was the entree
of one Fred Dubois some four weeks
since, who the first thing he did was to
enquire for one Bob Bragan, the county
clerk who tried to ring in the bogus re
turns for Singlser at the last election
but got beautifully left. Dubois left his
fight in this county in the
hands of (he three worthies. Dick
Wright, Bob Brogan and Col. Manning,
the mugwump three. They soil every
thing they fasten on to here, and Dubois
had enough load without them.
Although he might have got a few
republican voles in this county if he
had kept his hands off, now I do not
believe lie will get even a half dozen of
his own party. They have weighted
him down so that he would reach the
half mile post. All the democrats and
many of the straight republicans in this
section will vote for John Hailey as the
better class of citizens are tired of the
renegades and carpet-baggers, seeking
office, and robbing the public crib.
The speakers go to Cœur d'Alene to
day, and will address the public there
this evening. One 11. \V. Smith a seedy

Editor Press. —So far as known all
the prospectors have returned from the
mountains. Many locations have been
made in the Alton district, but the only
one in which anything like develop
ment work has been done is the Cleve
land owned by 8. M. Johnson, Hoyt &
Co. They have sunk several shafts, one
thirty five feet. A pack-train loaded
with ore from this mine passed through
here three days since for the Weiser—
the ore to he sent to Salt Lake for treat
ment. It was of course carefully selec
ted ore and is expected to go about $800
per ton. Some very fine specimens ol
native silver have been found there by
Mr. Johnson who thinks there is a good
deal in- it, but so little work has been
done that nothing definite can be said.
From many other locations samples
have been taken for assay and some of
them indicate good ore but there is
about the usual amount of humbug
going on. No placer ground lias been
found worth locating.
A survey of the political horizon
shows everyone to be well satisfied.
The county tickets are in the field and
you pays your taxes and takes your
choice. Both are quite unexceptionable.
My friend Hexter declares that the
democratic ticket is so very excellent
that it would he a shame not to see it
all elected, and I myself find the repub

and vigorous material that it would be
almost criminal to use a pencil on it
anywhere—which I could not say be
fore for the last eighteen years. Home
parties with naturalization papers with
no paaticular politics say they don't
know which one to vote,
such men need interviewing.

Campaign Notes. •
Idaho and Nez Perce counties will
give Uncle Hailey rousing majorities.
It is difficult for the Dubois organs to
explain wherein Dubois would make a
better delegate than Hailey.
All the talk of the republican Dubois
barrel organs about Uncle Hailey being
a mormon is only bluster and jealousy.
The Democrat says north Idaho will
prove the political battle-ground so far
the delegateship is concerned. In
that event the battle is already won for
Dubois is having a nice little collkr
and-elbow wrestle with himself in hts
alleged candidacy for the delegateship
which makes the boys laugh. Duboia
has no more chances of "getting there
than a snowball in hades.
The campaign against Uncle John i
confined exclusively to abuse
Hailey. They carefully avoid praising
Dubois for the two reasons that they
are not sincere in supporting him and
that there is absolutely nothing tobe
said for him.
According to the Salt Lake Tribune
logic, none but republicans are Ameri
can citizens; and all democrats
rnons. The same journal not long since
stigmatised all democrats as rebels.
Let Uncle John remind the

» i^l be elected all the same.
IredT. Dubois, republican nominee
for delegate to congress, made a short
speech at the meeting last night. Hie
talk showed him to be an amateur at
speechmaking. In his talk of 12} min
utes he used the pronoun "I" forty-nine
times. This, we understand, is bis first
attempted speech in the campaign.—

on me was that of a gentleman in each

There is much kicking at the "Jockey
Club" for selecting the Junction track,
owing to its distance from town. The
racing all around has been more than
tame and owing the scarcity of coin
betting is spiritless.
Mr. Harriman did Camas prairie
proud in capturing the "bucket" and its
contents at Thursday's trotting race. 1
arrived in the city just in time to miss
the race, but helped the boys celebrate
the victory all the same.
Hon. G. W. Adams, another demo
crat who is wet-nursing Dubois, spoke
for two hours on political issues at the
court house last night to an audience of
about fifty, half of whom were demo
crats. The republicans here are not
enthusing for Dubois, although there is
an "old guard" who are faithful to the
end. All sorts of tricks will be sprung
before election to switch democrats
o the Dubois ranks, but the party in
Nez Perce is kept well in hand by a
tight check-liDe, and all the kicking
they do won't help Dubois a bit.
