MONTPELIER EXAMINER NO. 16 VOL. XII MONTPELIER, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JUNE i, 1906 FEW PRESS OPINIONS we is a What Some of the Papers Say of Dubois and His Policy. SOME SEVERE CRITICISMS Leading Democratic Journals Opposed to Making Mormon Question the Paramount Issue. The tone of the proceedings of the democratic committee meeting at. Boise does not seem to indicate any improvement in the morale of the jparty organization. Its main business still seems to be to accuse, to blame, to quarrel and read out members of the party, just as it has been doing for some years past now There seem to be a pair or so of fool fayorites in charge of the party machinery who look upon the or ganization largely as a means of getting even with some one, first over one thing and then over an other. The general public has, of course, little or no interest in the ins and outs of the party's troubles and is only concerned with its affairs as an instrumentality of govern ment. The public is rightfully con cerned that this party should be ready and fit for the functions of governmental such time as a change of administration might appear de sirable and is therefore entitled to a better display of its purposes and its plans than has been given recent ly. The mtsleaders of the party have apparently done their utmost to keep up a contention on the in aide, against each other, and it is high time some strong hand should take hold of it lest it should better be disbanded and quit the political field. and displacement from the top to the foot of the ladder, the failure is not chargeable chiefly to the oppon V ents of the party, but rather to its wild and woolly friends on the in side.—Lewiston Tribune. (Dem ) er All it and not of or In the loss of recent elections The meeting of the democratic state central committee which met at Boise Monday was, as had been anticipated, strictly under the dom ination of Dubois. In fact, Chair man Jackson had to get a letter from Dubois, telling him just wliat j the democratic party must do, 1 e fore he could hold the meeting. The j paramount issues of the democratic party, according to Fred, are the Mormon question, Smoot's seat, and the Montpelier postmastership. In the resolutions adopted by the committee there is no mention of democratic principles. The only principles are Dubois and Anti Mormonism. Those who do not subscribe to these vagaries, and these alone, are invited to stay away i> from the democratic primaries, llow long do democrats intend to stand snob dictation? How long will they submit to parly demoraliz ation to serve the private ambition of one individual?—Parma Herald, (Dein.) Senator Dubois is Idaho's 1 rght est and most clever politician. He has had his face m the public crib since Tige was a pup. played the political game on all sides of the fence, and then some. He now poses as the savior of the peo ple of Idaho, who he claims are in the clutches of the horrible octopus, "Mormonism, rely strangling the manhood and womanhood of Idaho. I his is a He has which is slowly but su bunch of bad dope to tiy to force down the throats of Idaho people. We have no objection to the Sena tjfcr having office, but we do object ** tb his attempt to persecute tbe Mor people for political revenue mon only. If Idaho is in the condition Dubois says we are in, right think ing people ought to all get up and leave. Tbe gallant gentleman is a wonder, and if he can give us tbe proof of all these crimes he alleges, for ber read, tive the the was will help him in his holy war of 'xterm'nation. But when the X-ray turned on it will be found that Senator Dubois is carrying around photograph with his autograph: •'Yours for office, Fred T. Dubois." —Burley Bulletin. Polygamous living should be -■topped without any mercy accom panying the process, whether it is practiced by Mormons or non Mor mons, but bow is this political pow of the Mormons to be destroyed. All religious organizations possess political power, and for exercising should that power be destroyed? Senator Dubois possesses a political power, and has possessed it for a great many years, li has boon an invincible power, lie would surely most seriously object to having it ruthlessly destroyed. * * There is one way to destroy the political power of an organization, and that is by disfranchising its members. The people of Idaho will not endorse such a radical and un just measure. They will, however, fivor legislation tor the suppression of polygamy if a law car. be framed that would give promise of being more effective than the one we now have. But Senator Dubois will have to acquire more power than he has heretofore possessed to destroy the political power of Mormonism or any other religious denomination. —Idaho City World. met dell to our of of The ed The dispatch further says, after giving the "paramount issue" that the Senator has proposed for the old line democrats of Idaho, who were making their own platforms and voting the ticket while Senator Du bois was a republican office holder, that "as to the other issues to be considered by the state convention, Senator Dubois leaves all to the wisdom of a majority of delegates." Think of that, you democrats who imagine that your party is governed by majority rule. Senator Dubois cuts out and hands to you, ready made, the great issue from his standpoint as an office seeker, and as to what he considers minor democratic party of Idaho would submit to such off» nsiye acts of bossism except for the fact that it In matters, he leaves you to pursue such a course as you may desire. We could n< t believe that even the submitted to the same thing two The democratic party years ago. of Idaho exists for no other reason than to be useful to Senator Dubois. —W allace Press. The recent meeting of the so called democratic state central com mittee there was furnished the only example so far as known in this country, where a party committee sought to forbid tde participation in the primaries of the party, those members of the organization who differ in some matters of policy from those in control of the machin If this be not party machinery ery. or bossism gone mad, then America has never seen an example of it. This machine ousts from its mem bersnip the duly elected representa tives of the party who do not fully agree with them in their party ma chinations, they tell the members of the party what, aud what only, they may fight for, and they calmly tell those who do not agree with them that they may no longer have even an opportunity of contesting the matter with them in the primaries. Such dictation, such contempt of American citizenship and independ ence, such determination to ride rough shod oyer the rights of the people,- has never been seen—no, not even in the palmiest days of Mormon domination.-Pocatello Ad vance, (Dem.) Steunenber* Memorial Monument. The executive committee of the Frank Steunenberg Memorial asso ciation held a meeting ia Boise Wednesday to further consider plans carrying on the work. A num ber of letters from sculptors were read, making suggestions about tue undertaking and giving some tenta tive estimates of the cost of such a monument as would do justice to the subject. Atter discussing the subject fully, the committee determined the mon ument should Le as plain as con sistent with artistic perfection. It was lurther agreed that the sum necessary for the work would be about $25,000, and it was deter mined to raise that sum by popular subscription. ing er and son 5th the of of are Club Notes.

Mesdames Pease, Blaine and Spi dell were appointed by the president to draft resolutions of sympathy to our State President, Mrs. Standrod of Pocatello, on the death of her daughter.

The Club adjourned to meet next September. members re Mormonism is Issue. The Satt Lake Herald of last Sun day had a column article from its Boise correspondent booming Judge Siockslager for the gubernatorial nomination on the democratic ticket. In touching upon the issue in the coming campaign the writer said:/ "From Senator Dubois down the democratic leaders bave determined to wage their battle on the issue of opposition to the Mormon church. The breach between the Idaho "un terrified" and the adherents of Mor monism is too wide to be bridged. Democratic leaders have determined to carry their opposition to the church to the point of re-enacting the famous 'test oath' if they gain control of the legislature. In brief that means that the democratic pro gram is to disfranchise each and every Mormon in Idaho. That is Senator Dubois' plan, and back of him are the leaders of the dominant faction of his party. "Judge Stocksiager has never figured as a pronounced opponent of the church. He has been on the bench since the issae became acute, and has not been forced to take a stand. But he bas told his party friends that he favors making the Mortn >n issue the paramount one of the campaign; that he stands with the party on the question and that, if elected governor, his influence will be exerted toward carrying out the party platfoim." of How to Break Up a Cold. It m vy he a surprise to many to learn that a severe cold can be completely b -oken up in one or two day's time. Tbe first eymptons ot a cold are a dry, loud c >u*h, a profu-e watery discharge from tbe nose, an 1 a thin, white coating on th tongue. When Chamberlain's Cough Remedy Is taken every hour on the first appearance of these eymptons, it counterac s t c effi ct of tbe cold and re stores tbe system to a healthy condition within a day or two.

The trustees of Montpelier inde pendent school district met last Sat urday night and organized by elect ing F. M. Winters, chairman, W. R. Holmes, clerk and Richard Groo treasurer. The bond of the treasur er was fixed at $10,000. Mr. Groo furnished the bond with G. C. Gray and J. R. Brennan as sureties.

Second primary, Mrs. HI.line. First primary of Washington school, Miss Rose Lau. Second primary, Miss Pearce. Miss Ethel Stevens of Oakley, Utah, was elected as teacher for the 5th and 6th grades, but it was not determined in which building she would be assigned. The election of two oth_r grade teachers and principal of the Wash ington school was deterred until the regular meeting of the board on June lllh. Neither Mrs. Chamberlaine nor the Misses Bairett, Hughes and Hoggsette were applicants for re election. Miss Hughes and Miss Hoggsette expect to teach iu the Lincoln, Neb., schools next year. The salary of the clerk of the board was fixed at $100 a year. The salary of Superintendent Willis was fixed at $115 a month; that of the principals of the build ings at $80 a month each and that of the grade teachers at $05 a month. The board decided to establish a high school course, but the location of the high school room has not been agreed upon. It is quite likely, however, that the vacant room in the Washington biildiig w.ll Le fitted up and uted for high 6ch jol purposes until such time as 1 on Is are voted for the erection of a high school building.

The weather the past week has caused much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth among ball players and "fans." The game that was to have been played at Poca tello last Sunday, between the Mont pelier and Gate City teams, had to be called off on account of rain, as was also the game here Wednesday between Soda Springs and Mont pelier. It looks now, however, like the weather man had decided to be good for a few days. At any rate, the Pocatello and Montpelier teams have decided to take a long chance on the weather and will play ballon the Montpelier diamond next Sun day, June 3rd. The game promises to be a fast and furious one as the winning team will pocket all of the gate receipts. The Montpelier team realizes that they are up against hard proposition as they have only played a portion of one game this season, while the Gate City aggre gation has played at least six. But Montpelier's team is composed nervy lads and they are not worry ing in the least about losing the gate receipts. So if the weather man will only on it re be good and give us a decent day next Sunday the lovers of the national game will see one of ibe liveliest contests ever witnessed on the home grounds. The game will be called at 2 : 80 . All of the fans in Bear Lake county should be there wiih their shouting clothes o.i. AS HOW ABOUT IT? on of in I» Montpelier Going to Celebrate on July Fourth?
