ORANGEVILLE IDAHO. OFFICIAL COUNTY PAPER. Thursday, Jan. 19, If as or - 1905 It pays tobe fair even in bidding for county printing. Staff correspondents and a grape vine press Bervice doesn't necessar ily make a popular newspaper. Idaho connty has never been robbed of one cent through county printing but she certainly has a bargain in that line this year. The Free Press may not make much money out of the county printing but there is no one to whom we would rather give a handsome present than the good people of Idaho county. The Standard suggested last fall that George RohertBon should pay taxes on the treasurer's office be cause he had held it for eight years. The Free Press has been the offic ial county paper a good deal longer than that and we presume we are subject to the same criticism. With Senator Dietrich indicted for selling postmasterships; Senator Burton indicted for receiving mon eys from a corporation to secure certain legislation; and Senator Mitchell indicted for laud frauds against the federal government, the republican press have found it con venient to drop the discusssion as to the honesty of democrats in office.—Exchange. The action of the Standard in omitting the commissioners pro ceedings and legal notices in its bed for the connty printing, in hopes that it wonld be overlooked and they conld then charge legal rates, was an attempt at deception not commendable aud shows ignor ance rather than shrewdness, course the commissioners are not printers, neither are they fools, and they could hardly be expected to overlook such a course piece of jobbery. Of a of is a on To in by The supreme court of Nebraska has decided that the law granting a bounty to the manufacturers of beet sugar is unconstitutional— and is in line with the decisions of the courts of other states which have attempted to furnish state aid for private enterprises. Ap propriations for such purposes are usually put through a legislature by trading combinations that have for their object the "looting of the treasury. such laws are usually nullified when an interested taxpayer sees fit to protect himself by invoking the aid of the courts. With legis latures composed of organized schemers it is only by an appeal to the courts that popular rights can be preserved. » ? It is fortunate that Says the Philadelphia Record: "It is a destressing indication of the venality of our politics that iu a single yeat three members of what we are used to call the most august legislative body iu the world should have become defendants in criminal proceedings on the charges of having made merchandise of their positions and influence. One of them has been exonerated by a Senatorial committee of inquiry, another has appealed from the judgment and sentence delivered, while the third has just been called to answer au indictment, senators, like Caesar's wife, ought to be above suspicion; and that cannot be said of anybody whose conduct is questionable enough to become the basis of a criminal in formation or the presentment of a grand jury." But The State of Idaho could almost afford to build a railroad connect ing the north and south part of the state. traveled by legislators and state officials in going to and from the Capital, and which must be paid by the state, is almost startling in its'enormity. Representative Timm of this county, is allowed over 1400 mil« travel pay, and many of the representatives exceed 1000. Every guard from the penitentiary or asylum with the men in their charge must also travel a great distance that would be avoided if we had a north and south road and, on the whole, it is doubtful if ouough money is not Bpent in this The immense distance Any action taken by the legislature to encour age the construction of a road, we believe, would meet with the approval of the entire state, even though it meant a reasonably lhrge appropriation. The air is full of peace congresses these days, and as most everybody likes to talk when given a good chance, no particular harm is being done. Under present conditions, with millions upon millions of dol lars that are being spent upon the armies and navies of the world, peace talk is simply idle. It misses the root of the whole question. Every nation that can raise the necessary money to maintain a fair sized army and navy has a chip upon its shoulder, and boaBts of the fact. Germany is going at it headlong with her war- parading emperor, and England periodically gets into a fever of excitement for fear one of her many enemies will blow her little island into the sea, and she orders a host of battleships. If the world insists upon a big army or a big navy to "insure peace" and for protection, the United States must uot only join the procession, but take the lead as far as an efficient navy is con cerned. The necessity for such a course, however, is to be greatly deplored. Let us not talk peace, then. It would perhaps be more expedient and effective for Presi dent Roosevelt to suggest to Eng land, Germany, France, Russia and Japan that an agreement be entered into between the nations not to build during the next twenty or thirty years any new ships of war or to increase the number of men in the army of each nation. What the civilized world ought to stop is this headlong waste of vast sums for great armies and navies, which, in the east, will leave the nations of the world in practically the same relative positions that the occupy today. If this money could he used for some practical purpose, what a wonderful impetus could he given to art, science and literature, and to those euternal improvements which are one of the chief factors in making a nation great and prosperous. — Pacific Monthly. a to a in in to of Amen! Amenl "We think this is agood move." The foregoing line is catching our eye so frequently in Idaho republican papers wo were led to further investigate, and learned that it referred to the following: From an exchange we learned that Senator Stewart has intro duced a hill into the senate increas ing the salary of the president of the United Stales from *50,000 to 8100.000 per annum, that of vice president and the speaker of the house from 88,000 to *20,000 per annum and the salaries of the sen ators, representatives and delegates from 85,000 to 810,000. The same journal thought it was a good move to raise state salaries 825.000 per term—aud the people of the state thought it was a good move, and endorsed it by re-elect ing those who made the raise, is possible the idea of a national raise was suggested by the eager ness with which men who "can hardly pay their taxes" rushed to the ballot box to endorse the 825, 000 raise in state salaries. Poor people all over the nation will no doubt think the president needs a raise and express their sentiments on that with the same generous spirit as upon the Idaho precedent. To tell the truth, there is no better method to cure ourselves of becom ing arrogant or acquiring the super cilious air of wealth than to attach such royal perquisites to high office that the common run of us will be in no danger of being burdened with any surplus over living ex penses. Kings, Czars and Emper ors get much more than the 8100, 000 which it is proposed to pay the president—aud they don't have to wait for congressional action either —but just tax it out of the people by monarchist power.— Weiser Sig nal. of of to it of of a a in or if if Speedy Relief.

Readers of "The Smart Set' ' hare learned to look upon the complete novel that appears in each isene of that magazine as the biggest event of the month in fiction; bnt even the most enthusiastic reader will be happily surprised by the story of the February number. Beyond a doubt "The Eavesdroppers," by Arthur Stringer, will prove one of the sensations of the year. The story deals with the careers of two daring criminals — a man and a woman—whose astonishing adven tures the reader follows with breathless interest. From the very opening sentence the tale becomes one of rapid and exciting incident, and, moreover, it is written with that literary distinction which al ways characterizes Mr. Stringer's work. Different as "The Eaves droppers" is from such fiction as "In the Bishop's Carriage" and "Raffles," it combines all the in terest of those stories with a move-" ment and intensity entirely its own. It is a notable achievement for the author, and will prove a notable novelette in The Smart Set's long list of successful Btories. J. sec E. W* of M.
