Large Majority Opposed

With the returns that Washington
county has gone against the indorse
ment of a I'nlted States senator in the
siate convention the hope of the Borah
forces has died away.
Idaho county arrived today anti dis
puted tile fact that their delegation

dorsement. Latah reports in line to a
man against indorsement. There has
„ever been a question about Kootenai,
and no one t an find a Borah sentiment
In the Nez Perce delegation.
The southeastern counties have al
ways been against indorsement despite
the many conflicting reports to the
contrary and the line up now is as one
sided as Borah organs have claims in
the past, but it is all on the other side.
Even Shoshone county cannot be
counted in favor of indorsement, and
those who know insist Shoshone will
be first last and all the time against
Indorsement If they find they cannot
elect their governor.
