ANNEXATION OF CUBA.
The democrats have been rather
sharp in their criticisms of the late ut
terances of Senator Beveridge on the
annexation of Cuba, but the precedent
for annexation in instances like the
present is of democratic origin. It
came In the annexation of Cuba to the
Union. This has been cited in con •
gress. In the spring of 1902, Senator
Elkins introduced in the senate a reso
lution styled after the resolution pro
posing the admission of Texas into the
Union and In the discussion of his
resolution recently said:
"I theft predicted what has happen
ed, and In order to protect order, peace
and protection In the Interest of the
Cuban people I said Cuba should be
annexed. From the time of Jefferson
until now the annexation of Cuba has
been favored by many leading Ameri
There was no more occasion to an
nex Texas at the time that Indepen
dent government was taken into the
Union tlüui theer is now to annex
Cuba. But our hands are now tied by
the Teller amendment and nothing
more can be done until the people of
the Island confess their Incapacity and
ask for admission.
A DISRUPTED DEMOCRACY.
The rupture In the democratic party
to Ada county Is only what has been
predicted »for the whole democratic
party in Idaho, which will sooner dr
later rise to repudiate Senator Dubois
and the Issues he seeks to raise.
Democracy has been lost sight of in
the Interests of the candidacy of Sen
ator Dubois for re-election. Old-time
leaders are estranged and there are
evidences everywhere of open disrup
tion. The domination of Dubois is
galling to the old-line democrats, and
his signal defeat at the coming elec
tion will purge tlie party of his leader
ship. This is the attitude they are as
suming, and the situation may develop
into an open warfare with democrats
going on the Btump against the ticket.
Democracy in Idaho, in the apt words
Of Colonel Watterson, is marching

Consistency of Idaho Democrats,
The sole important Issue of the Du
bois democracy for the campaign of
1906, is warfare on Mormonlsm and to
this end the democratic state conven
tion unseated Mormon delegates be
cause they were Mormons, and made
the Mormon Issue the chief Issue, yet
Canyon county democracy, endorsing
Dubolslsm and his Mormon plank, at
Its county convention, held at Nampa
the 20 th of last month, nominated
Mormon, J. G. Maughm, for the office
of county attorney. It would seem to
the uninitiated that Idaho democracy
is hardly living up to its professed
principles and platform.
