Dan McFadden, arrested on com

for selling adultrated lard as the

Mr. McFadden said he
knew he was guilty. He purchased
the lard in a tierce from the Ham

He had thought it did not seem

right but did not realize it was not

Hearst Sore on Idaho.
Edward H. Hamilton, the famous
Hearst newspaper correspondent
describing the struggle for the pres
idential nomination at St. Louis, is
very bitter over the action of the
Idaho delegation, which he accuses
» I
of betraying his leader. Hamilton i
treats the incident as follows in hi,s !
report to the Hearst syndicate of ;
Outside of the Parker matter the
day has been spent m telling how
the fight was won and lost. There
seemed to be but one real sore spot
left before the Parker manifesto.
Idaho represents that sore, and the
Idaho delegation has not come off
! with honor. Men are shaking their
heads over it, and the whispered
innuendoes are not good to hear.
When the roll was called and the
vote on the nomination of Parker
was a tew shy of the necessary two
thirds, everybody felt that the thing
was over; in fact', everybody but the
dreamers had known for days that
Parker would be the nominee when
ever the thing got to a vote, but 1»
fore the result could be announced,
Idaho had instructed for Hearst.
The change was a direct breach of
political faith among politicians.
Such a thing is a refusal to pav a
debt of honor among gentlemen' or
welching among gamblers.

Great Plans Mapped Out.
The Moscow Star is informed up
on the very best authority that on
Friday, July 1st, there was a secret
meetinfi held in the governor's room
at the State House m Boise which
was attended by the governor; Judge
Stewart, of that judicial district;
Calvin Cobb, proprietor of the
Statesman; aud Edgar Wilson, who
left the Republican party in 1896
and is still out, is in fact a Dubois
man. Max Mayfield would have
been present but was absent from
the city. He was there in spirit,

to fill Judge Sullivan'« seat on the
supreme bench; Edgar Wilson is to
be appointed by Governor Morrison
to fill Judge Stewart's present posi

term on the supreme benck expires,
W ilson is slated to succed him. At
the end of his second term, two

for the Statesman to stop its war on
