ANOTHER PRECINCT HEARD
FROM.
Boise City, Idaho, Oct. 12, 1886.
Ed. Press. —Don't think fora moment
that we are all Dubois men overthis way.
There are many here who know well oi
his performances.
In this age when the public sentiment
is so carefully trained, the parties have
necessarily to place themselves in ac
cord therewith. We can not, therefore,
judge by the mere statements or
promises to carry out the needed re
forms, but by the sincerity with which
they are set forth and above all by the
candidates who are pledged to support
the desired policies. No platform, how
ever meritorious, could advance the
peoples interests one jot with incapable
or corrupt men in office. Platforms are
usually "straw bonds" for the candi
dates' integrity and as is frequently the
case such security is valueless. Thus
in an ideal stale, the people gifted with
unfailing discernment of merit, would
select continually the wisest and ablest
men to govern the country, who would
always devise those policies which
would best be conducive to the common
happiness and welfare. Unless a radi
cal difference arises among the people,
their duty is to judge between men
rather than between party polities ; for
it is not infrequently the case where an
unscrupulous politician desires to ad
vance bis private interesis that a coterie
of his followers study over a platform
simply to make it attractive and not to
carry out desired reforms.
We have outlined the vein of in
sincerity and misrepresentation which
ramifies tho platform of the Dubois
party. We say the Dubois party be
cause they are not republicans except
in name, and wo do not believe that
republicans and spoilsmen are synony
mous terms.
Now, when we remember that the so
called republican convention, was com
posed of men animated by the promise
of spoils and not by the public good, it
is not difficult to account for this state
of affairs. Good never springs from
evil, and this Dubois agitation which
has been simmering during the past
three or four years lias been brought to
tho present crisis by a system of decep
tion, bribery and political corruption
never before equaled. That the office
of U. S. Marshal should have been per
mitted to be used in this way is not
to the credit of the Cleveland admin
istration, whose civil service policy
founded on no interference in politics,
should have hurled this man from his
high place at the very outset.
Those who have had any dealings
with U. 8. marshal Dubois know how be
has handled that office for bis own pri
vate end. In his pursuit of polygamists,
in his attendance at the various courts,
at the penitentiary, and elsewhere, his
every official act, Lis feasts and favors
have been guided by that unquenchable
thirst for office which seems to have
taken possession of his very son). Thus
he appointed a brother of Jack Camp
bell, penitentiary guard in exchange for
what votos the republican candidate for
sheriff could bring him. So you see the
government pai 1 for Campbell's politi
cal influence. Then again he refused to
stripe and shave a prominent politician
who had the misfortune to be convicted
and sent to the pen, although the rules
strictly provides for this. It is needless
to say that the aforesaid politician, who
is now at liberty strenuously supports
Dubois.
What influence lie has got has been
obtained in just that way. Bargaining
places, selling official favors, promising
government plunder in the event of
success, these have been his weapons.
It is by such a prostitution of a public
office that he has gained a following;
fur in both parties there can always be
found some spirits w illing to embrace
any cause that promises public spoils or
advancement.
Dubois hituselfis neither magnetic nor
enticing, lie is that type of egotist
which repels mpn at a glance. As we
common people say ; you can't touch
him with a forty foot pole. You can see
that chronic vanity cropping out
between every fiber of his body, en
veloping him in an atmosphere of self
importance, whieli seems to say "don't
touch" "hands off," This is called the
working-mans candidate for congress,
the anti Chinese, anti-mormon anti
anytiling that-will-scud-him-on-his-de
sired-mission candidate. We know
something of the man and his methods
but we shall learn more. When Hie
truth is known Dubois will 6uicide in
Salt river under the weight of his own
iniquity and public opinion.
