NO. 30 MONTPELIER. IDAHO, FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 4 «914* VOL XX. BEAR LAKE CASTS FAIRLY GOOD VOTE AT PRIMARY ♦ . Brady and Haines Carry County by a Big Vote Hawley and Alexander Winners on Dem ocratic Ticket-Some Close Contests on the County Tickets. tleturns so far received from Tuesday's primary election indicate that there was a fairly good vote cast in the county. Returns on the republican vote from 17 of the 20 precincts show a total of about 950 votes, and the returns on the demo cratic vote from 16 of the 20 pre cincts shows a total of 450. The vote from the missing precincts will run the total up to about 1500 out of a possible vote of 2700 in the county. The vote in Montpelier was the lightest of any precinct in the county. Out of a possible vote of 800 only 325 were cast. Paris cast 290 out of a total of about 375. On the republican ticket Brady and Haines carry the county by handsome votes, while Hawley and Alexander have comfortable leads on the democratic ticket. On the county ticket the contest is close on several offices, and for a while Wednesday it looked like it would require the official count to determine the result on sheriff and auditor, but returns that evening on the precincts which were late in reporting, gave figures enough to settle the contests. The three miss ing precincts—Nounan, Geneva and Eight Mile will not materially chan g the results. The closest contest is on auditor and recorder. The 17 precincts give Winters a lead of about 11 over Broomhead, and as it is conceded that Winters has carried at least two of the three missing precincts, his nomination is assured. For sheriff Hymas defeats Olson by less than 50 votes. For treasurer Stocker has a good lead over Tueller, with Parker third. Price defeats Denio for probate judge by something like 50 votes. For representatives Hayward and Wright are the nominees. Allred wins the nomination for commissioner in the First district by a big vote. Mumford, for state senator; Dunn, for assessor; Hart, for Supt. of schools; Rich for attorney; Budge and Gray for commissioners in Sec ond and Third districts, had no op position and are of course nominated with only a few scattering votes against them. On the democratic county tickets there were no contests except for sheriff, coroner and representatives. The nominees for these offices are Athay for sheriff, Painter for cor oner, Cruikshank and Findlay for In talking with representatives. Editor Holmes of the Paris Post he informed us that in obtaining the it V 1 " ► £7 ...ted •Age !

We did not take the second choice votes into con sideration. This will explain the differences in the total vote as they appear this week in the two papers. The commissioners will meet to morrow or Monday to canvass the returns and the official figures will be published next week.

TO IMPOSE STAMP TAX ON S0n DRINKS AND BEER Washington, September 1.—A stamp tax on soft drinks as well as beer and patent medicines is con templated by members of the house ways and means committee which is preparing an emergency from an in ternal revenue bill to offset treasury losses due to curtailment of import*. It is urged that soft drinks are as much luxuries as wines or beer, and that an equitable distribution of the tax burden among all consumers would be accomplished by this plan. Another suggestion is a stamp tax of 6 or 10 per cent on railroad tickets and admission to theatres, baseball parks and other lieenaed amusements. It is estimated that from »50,000,000 to »80,000,000 could be raised in this way. The committee has not deter mined upon a complete taxation plan as yet but purposes to hasten its deliberation so a bill may be in troduced soon after President Wil addreases congress on the sub ject which probably will be immed* 146 iately upon his return from New Hampshire. Administration leaders I are impressed with the neeeasisity of quick action in order to disturb business conditions as little as pos sible.
