THE MONTPELIER EXAMINER
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY THE Examiner Publishing Co., Ltd. C. E. WRIUHT, Editor and Manager SUBSCRIPTION RATES It 50 One year. Six months, if paid in advance.... Tntered at the postofliee af Montpelier. Idaho, as second class matter. 75 Montpelier, Idaho, April 6, 1906 There will lie no dearth of candi dates from Northern Idaho this year before the republican state conven tion. Although it is nearly four months until the convention meets, the north has a candidate for gover nor in the person of Mayor Rossi of Wallace; and a candidate for lieu tenant governor in the person of State Senator Crum of Lewiston. Besides, there are Congressman French and State Auditor Bragaw who want re-nominations, and there is no telling how many more will hob np from that section between pow and August 1st. The anti Gooding element in the republican party has been indus trious searching the mountains and valleys of Idaho for the past six months for a suitable man to bring out in opposition to the governor at the convention. That they have at last found a Moses whom they hope will lead them out of the wilderness, is evidenced by the fact that Herman J. Rossi, Mayor of Wallace, has ' 'agreed to acceed to the earnest de mands of his friends and enter the fight for the nomination, liossi has been a prominent man in the Coeur d'Alene for a number of years, but is little knowu through out the southern part of the state. What strength he will develop, re mains to be seen, but if he proves acceptable to the entire anti-Gooding element, it is quite likely that he will go into the convention with a strong following. Mr. What does it profit a man to gather about him riches, gain for himself a great name and a seat in the nation's highest legislative body, and then as he is approaching the sunset of life to lose his prestige, his fair name, and be looked upon by the world as an outcast? This is practically the condition in C'hauncey Depew of New York, finds himself today. He has lost everything but bis wealth—even his young wife, who, only a few months ago, promised to love, honor and cherish him through life—has de serted him. He has no influence, whatever, in the U. S. senate. In fact, he is ashamed to longer occupy his seat in that August legislatiye body. His friends have deserted him and he could not again be elec ted to the most humble position within the gift of the people of his state. A few years ago (Jhauncey Depew was considered as one of the nation's brighest, most honorable and upright citizens, but his greed for wealth caused him to stray from the path of honesty and rectitude, and in the space of a very short lime he has lost that which is worth more to him than all the riches he has attained. The postofliee department has lines very closely against admission through the mails of papers or periodicals containing any advertisement in the nature of a lottery, games of chance, or even the advertisments of merchants which offer a chance on any article with the purchase of goods, but nothing is said against the use of the mails by the Appeal to Reason, which is weekly sending out sedi tious and treasonable literature by the millions of copies. Every week since the arrest of the Federation official in connection with the Steunenberg murder the utterances of that paper have been such as would tend to incite men to take up arms against the govern ment, in case those men are con victed by the courts. No other government, in the world would oven permit such treasonable stuff to be printed, much less permit it to go through the mails. The Appeal to Reason has a perfect right to de fend the cause the Federation lead ers now under indictment, but in so drawn the Fifty Years the Standard •DR; a cream _ BAKING PfWDIR A Cream of Tartar Powder Made From Crapes No Alum doing it has no right to preach treason and advocate the mûrier of all who will be connected with the trial of these men, in the event they are found guilty. We hold that it is time Uncle Sam was putting a stop to the circulation ot such treasonable literature. The Twin Falls News announces that the town will have a high school next year second to none in the state. And to think, two years ago the land upon which the magic city is now building, was covered with naught but sage brush, and coyotes and jack rabbits were the only occupants. Then think of Moutpelier, a town mgh onto fifty years old, a town which for the past twenty- years has been amply able to support a high school, but still we are without one. Scores of hoys and girls have grown to man and womanhood with only eighth grade educations. It is a burning shame that such a condition has been permitted to exist here all these years. But the Examiner is deter mined that Montpelier shall have a high school—-that the children who are now in the lower grades of our schools shall have the privilege of obtaining an additional four years' course of schooling ri^ht at home; a schooling that will better fit them to occupy positions in the higher and more remunerative walks of life. school can be established here by next fall, but we do hope to see the doors of a high school thrown open to the youth of Montpelier a year from next fall. We inteud to work unceasingly to accomplish that re sult, and we hope and have every reason to believe that we will have the hearty co-operation of every father and mother iu Montpelier. We do not expect ihat a high The Man Behind the Plow. Just a thought in recognition of a fel low who seldom gets into the news paper. He doesn't make much news. He knows mighty little about the "city ways" of making money. He has a fine liking for clean financial methods and a hearty scorn for all that is crooked. Perhaps it is his manner of living that makes him want to he honest. Let that man see a problem play, one of these things that serve to satisfy the jaded appetites of metropolitan people, and you'll find a splash of red on his tanned cheek and he will wonder how it is possible for women to be present. Tell him abont bribery and stock job bing and franchise stealing, and a few of the thousand forms of gouging the public and you will jar his faith in the natnral goodness of humanity. Just now this type of good American citizen is following a plow. It is hard work. It puts a big ache in the back and callous on the hands. It destroys the complexion. It calls for brown overalls and prespiration. The man is happy in bis work. He whistles as he trudges along in the furrow. He clucks to the horses and finds joy in the free dom of his life. He doesn't go into raptures over green fields and singing brook and songs of birds. They are a part of his environment. They are routine, hut he loves them just the same. He has an enormous burden on bis broad shoulders. He feeds the world. He is the brother of life itself. He toils long hours. His primary object in working in his own welfare. But he makes the world. He makes existence possible. He is the head of procession in which are marching the doctor, the lawyer, the banker, the idler. He is the foundation of wealth and prosperity. He is the creditor of humanity. It is well to nemember with grate fulness this man in overalls, who fol lows the plow ami whistles as the brown earth reveals its richness and prepares to bring forth the fruits of the field.—Moscow Mirror.J To U. S. Supreme Court The attorneys defending Haywood, Moyer and Pettibone, the Western Fédération of Miners' officials, have secured a writ of error from the chief justice of the supreme court of the stale and will go before the United States supreme court at Washington. The attorneys originally asked for a writ of habeas corpus for the three cused officers, contending that their extradition from Colorado was illegal and virtually kidnaping. The applica tion was denied. Accordingly they ap plied to Chief Justice Stockslager for writ of error and the motion granted If this writ of habaas corpus is granted by the federal court it will torce Idaho to give up the three pris oners and permit them to return to their resident city. ai I was It's Different Here.
