The death of 24 by the bubonic or pneu monic plague in Los Angeles Is but an aftermath of the« Immigration from those places. The hoof and mouth disease is but another little memento sent us from Europe and there are many more to follow. Personally, the editor of the Free Wc do not belong to either the A. 1*. A., the K. K. K., nor the Flaming Circle, but we do believe in America for Americans, and if we had our way about it, immigration would bo eut to an absolute minimum and not a news paper printed in a foreign language Tlds may sound harsh to some, but the law of the' "survival of the fit test" has never been suspended and in our opinion in no other way can the streams of life blood be kept clean in the United States of America. Press got a plenty of helping the dirty, ignorant and useless Russians and Ar menians, together with the hordes of others from Asia and Europe that would overrun our fair land,- some time ago. in the United" States. SCOLDING BY PROXY Often fan indirect method lias great er effect than direct one. The Free Press does not venture to say to which of our citizens this applies, nor indeed, that it applies to any; but having run across this most piquant article in Collier's by AViIlian Alien White, we have decided to let tlie said W. A. W do the scolding, and let the chilis fly where they will. Writing about a Chamber of Com merce—which happily for our pur pose fits any kind of community work that requires copiera tlon—Mr. Whit e says: "The Chamber of Coin nierce modifies the innate cussedness of the average selfish, hard-boiled, picnyunlsh, penny-pinching, narrow gauged, human porker and lifts up his snout, makes him see further than his home, his business and bis personal Interests, and sets him root Ing for his community. "A man, no matter how greedy and now squint-eyed he may be, can not work a year upon a committee of his town's chamber of commerce without being a lietter father, a bet-' : 4 < SUIT I ,1 ■ ► SALE (I Men's 1 00 % wool suits REGULAR $25.00 Value $17.50 I [I Men's Fine Serge Suits Reg ular $35.00 value, $26.95 C.

Opponents of Mr. White, political and otherwise, must admit that he is right once, and that hp uses very tarty English. WHY NEWSPAPERS PREACH ADVERTISING To the critical observer it might ap pear selfish for a newspaper to con tinually spread the gospel of advertis ing. But no matter how much the newspaper urges the public, partlcu larly the potential advertiser, to a more constant and consistent method of serving the people at large through the medium of the paid ad, it can hardly go too far. The reason Is that the more advertising the newspaper carries the more the public is served. A very elementary problem in logic presents Itself. First of all, it is a world-wide admission that all legiti mate advertising is a direct form of service to the particular class of buy ers or general clientele it seeks to reach. It follows, then, that any sug gestion, argument or persuasion that increases the number of advertisers or the amount of space used is a very vital factor in causing or helping this advertising service to be rendered. "Enterprise" is the biggest word in commerce; and advertising Is euter prising because it shows energy, progression and_ tiie inventive spirit in practical affairs. Men who study advertising scientifically all agree that ! "suggestion" is a fundamental of ail true advertising. Therefore, if the newspaper can suggest to the adver tisers that they themselves use the fundamental of suggestion by increas lug It through" advertising, a genuine service has been rendered, There is service In suggestion if it is timely and proper. Thus the great fabric Of trade and commerce lias I>ecn woven into American business life liecause the press has lain aside false modesty and has been foremost in urging advertising as ludispen sililo to commercial stability and progress. The Idaho County Free Press not only believes In advertising but be lieves it ft duty to stress advertising ns one means of justifying Its exis tence in the community which it seeks to serve. We go even further Eight United States attorneys have been dismissed from the Federal Prol i bit Ion Department. Without go WEEDING THEM OUT ! ing into the merits of the cases, we I affirm this move on general prin clples. Private business does not hesitate to "weed out" either those who are incompetent or who do not conform to the recognized •*policy of the institution they are hired to of good government serve. Why, therefore, should the public business—which is the peo ple's business—suffer, when a little shaking up now and then would put new life and devotion into the cause than that and nay that this editorial Is written, not as an excuse to stirau- : late advertising, but as an apology for 1 not urging more of It. CODES OF ETHICS FOB BUSINESS MEN There are few of us who like to have rules of conduct Staring us in the face at every turn. Neverthe less a move to uplift the great pro fession known as Business has been inaugurated Ip recent years by stat ing certain principles which apply to commercial relations between lines of business and In dealing with the public, and kgown as Principles of Business conduct, or business ethics. These principles can be adopted by all business men, great and small. They pertain as well to the owner of the popcorn stand as to the officials of a transcontinental railroad; and strange to say these principles have arisen like a rainbow in the sky, beckoning towaj-d a better day and more prosperity for all. They have not come through the co-called statesman, nor are they the offspring of politics ; no legislative committees during the mid poured over them night hour. Ethics is not the product of legislation, but the result of high er standards of morality and right thinking. The Code of Business Ethics has various origins, but it bus evolved and grown until it is now the very warp and woof of business life. We see it every day, consciously or un consciously, In every nook and cor ner. All legitimate business enter prises have practised, more or less, certain habits of dealing which is known as "policy." This policy is sometimes called the "good will" of a business, and it has positive value. Business, principles have been ac tually codified, standardized, and brought Into being. The Service clubs, such ns Kiwanls, Rotary, and Lions have been among the foremost organizations to advocate the putting of business Ideals Into concrete ac tlon. The Chamber of Commerce of the United States has proposed cer tain defined principles and offered them for adoption to any business so disposed. Among the fifteen tenets are some measures that appea to one's sense of fairness, and they are remarkabe for clarity of expression common sense. They such as are given below; Include The fountain of business is confi ... . . . . ..I which springs from integrity, fair dealing, efficient service and mu ami deuce, tual benefit.

BUFFALO STEAK ON NORTHERN PACIFIC Buffalo steak sizzled merrily and appetlzingly over many a enmp fire of Lewis and Clark, famed explorers, their long path finding trip from the Missouri River to the Pacific Coast in 1804-05. Today, 124 years later, buffalo meat again tops a menu card—this time on the Northern Pacific dining carsj which railroad follows the Lewis and Clark trail to the North on Pacific Coast. The prime meat is served as either steaks or roast, according to the an nouncement made today Thomson, superintendent car service, and transcontinental trav elers are finding it a happy addition to the menu suggestion. The meat comes from the Montana National Bison range established near Ravalli, Montana, the preservation of the buffalo or bison. Thirty-seven head were turn ed upon the range October 17, 1909. The herd now numbers 500. Each year, it is explained, it is necessary by A. W. of dining in 1909 for year, to dispose of a number of the ani mals in order to keep the herd with in the food capacity of the preserve. The national movement for the preservation of buffalo, aeordxng to data of the U. S. Biological Survey, began in June 1904 with the en listment of support for the project by Ernest Harold Baynes. President Roosevelt took Immediate and active Interest. The American Bison society was formed, and in January 1908 recommended that a site be purchased situated along the Northern Pacific Railway, at Ravalli, on the Flathead Indian reservation north of the Jocko an (least of the Flathead rivers, con sisting of a minimum of 20 square miles. Senator Joseph M. Dixon, chairman of the committee on Indian Affairs, and now Governor of Montana, intro duced a bill which was passed, and which was signed by President Roo.re velt May 3, 1908, appropriating the funds to buy the lands from the Flat head Indians. The society raised $10,560 for the purchase of a nucleus herd, the buf falo selected being from the herd founded by the late C. E. Conrad at Kalispel. Mont. It was said to have iiad its origin in a few calves cap tured by a Pend d'Oreille Indian a bout 1878 on the plains east of the Rocky Mountains. The society pur chased 34 head (12 males and 22 females) at $275 a head, delivered on the range, and In addition receiv ed ns a gift from the Conrad estate, one male herd lender Kalispell Chief, 7 old, and years one female, years old ,the best cow in the Conrad herd. Thirty-seven head (including a female buffalo given by Charles Goodnight of Texas) reached Raval li Saturday night, October 16, 1909, and the following day were unloaded on a special switch track put in by the Northern Pacific Railway on the south side of the range, two and on« half miles west of the Ravalli sta tlon.
