THEODORE ROOSEVELT
Theodore Roosevelt is dead. The sage of Sagamore Hill
answered the mystic roll call from up yonder, and to which
■every man must yield. Although Colonel Roosevelt had been!
failing in health for several years, and had undergone surgical
operations, his death was unexpected, and the entire country
«■as startled and saddened when word was flashed across the
land that the. former president of the United States of America
has
«■as no more.
The memory of Theodore Roosevelt will ever be preserved
in written American history. He has been described by some
the greatest American." Whether this characterization of
colonel will in time be generally recognized, remains for the,
nture to reveal.
Colonel Roosevelt, who was twice president of the United
I Mate-, was a man of great personal magnetism, fie was a
Iwognized leader, first in the Republican ranks of the nation,
I aid afterward was a leader of his own individual party, the
progressive, which had a following so tremendous that in 1912
. u
is
'
t disrupted the Republican party and permitted the election
I if Woodrow \\ ilson to the presidency of the United States. No
I nan save Roosevelt could have so shattered a political party
In the United States, and his vast following in all parts of the
land was due primarily to.the colonel's magnetic personality.
I 'his quality again was fully revealed when the colonel sought,
II the time America entered the late war, to organize a regi
I lient of volunteers for service overseas. His plan was stemmed
I iv the present administration.
I Colonel Roosevelt's accession to the office of president was
I inrely a matter of luck. He became, president in 1901 when as
lice-president of the United States he succeeded in office the
lartyred McKinley. Theodore Roosevelt was the youngest
resident of the United States. I le was scarcely 43 years of age
hen he took office.
■ Theodore Roosevelt was a man splendidly equipped for the
Bresideney, and soon he developed into a leader commanding
■odd-wide attention. A man of amazing vitality and courage,
l w were his ambitious during his terms of public office that
1ère not realized. Acquisition by the United States of pro-!*
lerty rights for construction of the Panama canal was accora
llished under Roosevelt's administration, and the colonel be-!*
lame famous for causing the prosecution of trusts, the regula
lon of railroads, and betterment of conditions for the working
pah. His two administrations may truly he described as
strenuous." a word the colonel so "delighted" in using.
Besides being a capable executive and statesman and a
aderof men, Colonel Roosevelt was noted as a traveler, author,
Idier and rancher.
Theodore Roosevelt's title of colonel was acquired during
ie Spamsh-American war when he was colonel of a cavalry
I îgiment of
< istinguished service in Cuba.
Colonel Roosevelt, during his presidency, was immensely
{jopnlar with the people of the. United States. The zenith of
'his popularity probably was reached when he retired from the
P Hdency in 1909. In 1912, when he was the Progressive can
didate for president, there was again a nation-wide outbreak
of enthusiasm for the colonel, but with the defeat of the Pro
cessives his stock rapidly dropped and a further decline came
■ithin the last year because of his scathing criticism of the
■ ilson administration's conduct of the war. Yet no one can
■>ubt the sincerity of Roosevelt in his criticisms.
I Colonel Roosevelt has been a national figure for more than
■enty years and, while as a man he has had shortcomings, as
hive all, his good deeds far overbalance his lack of judgment at
wrtain times, and his name will ever be cherished by the Ameri
I n people.

WELCOMING SOLDIERS
The reception given William Francisco, a returned soldier,
1 Riggins, the other day, is entirely in keeping with the wel
me that should be extended to soldiers and sailors who have
•De their part in the war and who have returned to their

It occurs that the Riggins people have outdone those of
a Dgeville in the extent of their greetings to the soldiers who

True it was

From Governor Davis and his associates is expected a

JONES MAKES HIT IN BOISE
Seth D. Jones, one of Idaho county's representatives in
♦ he state legislature, made a decided hit immediately he arrived
in Boise to attend the legislative session. The Boise States
man likens Mr. Jones to William H. Taft, ex-president of the
United States, when it says:
Taftsque to the last degree in the matters of bulk,
curves and contours is Seth D. Jones of Whitebird an
Idaho county representative, who arrived in Boise Fri- *
day. Mr. Jones is known in northern Idaho as the
"largest cowboy in the world." Accurate scales place
his avoirdupois at 365 pounds.
Serving his first tenu as a legislator, the gritful
stockman promises to prove one of the unique figures
of the coming session.

SALMON RIVER AND NEWPORT NEWS
* Elsewhere in this issue of the Free Press is printed a let
ter from a soldier, formerly from the Salmon river. He. is at
Newport News, Va., and in his letter recites that he always
thought the Salmon river section "was a tough little country,"
but "Newport News is so much tougher than old Salmon that
the river wouldn't be in it at all.
It had not occurred to the
» »
Free Press that the Salmon river country bore such an unsavory
reputation and it is exceedingly fortunate for our soldier friend
that he has seen Newport News, for now he can return to the
Salmon river and feel that after all "there's no place like
home.

The Oregon state legislature, scheduled to meet January
13, may not convene, because of seriousness of tflie influenza
epidemic in Oregon. It is felt that j:he public health may be
menaced by the gathering of the lawmakers. And many a time
the public would he spared needless suffering were legislative
sessions abandoned.
