Ed Beucher of Montpelier is spoken of as the probable nominee for Riirvevnr roi veyoi. A Letter to Dubois. The following open letter to Sen ator Dubois, who is now directing the destinies of the democratic party in Idaho, appeared in a recent issue of the Pocatello Tribune, tains nothing but pointed truths and after reading it, old line democrats should be able to see the folly of longer following the Senator in his present crusade against the Mor mons: It con Hon. Fred T. Dubois, United States Senator of Idaho: Dear Sir:—You are the sob of that celebrated Doctor Jes«e K. Dubois of Springfield, Illinois, the bosom friend of the immortal Abraham Lincoln and one of the founders of the Republican party. You were nurtured in an atmosphere of Republicanism and of party loyalty. * You «tame to Idaho, then a young ter ritory, and received your first office, that of United States marshal, at the hands of a Republican President, and through the influence of Republicans. A little later on you organized the old anti-Mormon party, which was effective in the southeast, and you were elected as delegate to Congress—a Republican in the North and an anti-Mormon in the South. This office honored with. Still later on when statehood ™ ! j cam°e'™ rd a o h mll"d "silver R^ubHcra leading the bolting delegation fro , thé et. Louie National convention endear X D t%rWahô r wi,h°!„„ Repablican you Iteeanae I believed year poaition ou tlie money question to be a correct one. I he present Senator Heybum was tlie only man in that whole convention who had the courage to rise and plead that the Republicans of Idaho remain loyal to the Nationalparty, and he was sup ported by a mere half dozen. He was jeered at and Senator Shou p.our nation al committeeman, was refused the empty honor of an election as delegate from Idaho. After the Inilt at St. Louis you immediately begau negotiations with William J. Bryan, presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket. By tnis time, however, the Populist party had become a formidable faction and one to be reckoned with. you were twice „ swept, the j feat^d for re-election to the Senate by i Hon. Henry Heitfeld after a long and ! aenmomous struggle. After several years you were again elected senator 1 l\v a combination vote m the le. islature , _ , Iu fact, it was the dominant party of Idaho and a fusion with the Democrats state like an avalanche and made a notable speech in the Cap ilui buiioing before tue joint assembly, " have acted and voted with that party in the Senate, but seeing inevitable de feat ahead, you have again trimmed your sails > ful,y intending, and with ev «ry ehance of success, to disrupt the Democratic party of Idaho, as you so successfully disrupted the Republican I party almost a decade ago. You have ' fathered the so-called "American'' j This makes about six political parties you have belonged to and have led in ! Idaho within the past twenty years, with strong tendencies toward others. 1 record°for one man? F Can%ou Change your political belief as rapidly as a chameleon changes color? Have you au y.political beliefs at all? Isn't your anxiety to ride in on the crest of each popular wave only the morbid longing to hold political office, instead of pure patriotism and the "purity of the American home? ' It is admitted that you are an astute politician, but you have overshot the mark this time. There are few, indeed, ^ ho d V n ? fc kuow that you entertain fully realize that yours is a iiopeiess floht; so does Chairman Jackson; Si P. v; your candidate for governor, Mr - Heit f e l<L who seems to be a willing sacrifice; C. J. Bassetl, and, in fact, all of those who have any inner knowledge of your intentions. But that is not the question with you and your immediate followers. Your intention is to create a formidable breach in the Democracy and two years hence, when your cessor in the United States Senate is to he elected, alienate enough Republicans from that party-men who had followed you before—and join with what is left of the Democracy and make a supreme effort for a majority in the legislature which will assure your re-election. Less than two years ago you were on extremely friendly relations with the Mormon people and in reply to Senator Hale in your speech, deliyered February o, 1903, when he asked you: "That, as the years go by and as the older gener ation disappear, polygamy will be practically removed?" you replied: "There is no question about it; and I will say to the Senator owing to the ac tive part which we took in the fierce contest in Idaho, I, with others who had made the fight, thought we were justi fied in making this promise to the Mor mon people. We had no authority of law, but we took it You j no suc upon ourselves to tissvir© tnBTu that, thos© ©lder men who were living in the polygamous relation, who had growing families which they had reared and weie rearing before the manifesto was issued, and at a time when they thought they had a right under the constitution to enter the polygamous relation—that those older ! men and women and their children!
