THE MONTPELIER EXAMINER
PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY BY The Examiner Publishing Co., Ltd. C. E. WRIGHT, Editor and Manager Gutered at the poeloffioe In Montpelier, Idaho,. as second-class matter. SUBSCRIPTION RATES One year, in advance .. Six months, if paid'in advance_ $1.50 .75 Montpelier, Idaho, Dec. 18, 1914 Governor-elect Alexander has announced that C. O. Broxon, editor of the Boise Capital News, will be his pri - vate secretary. The selection was no doubt a surprise to many, especially to the faith ful ones in the democratic par ty, who shouted and worked loud and long for Alexander's election, while Broxon was whoopinsr it up for McElroy, the progressive candidate. But really the old-line demo crats, who may have had their political eyes focused on that fat job" need not feel so bad ly because Mose has seen fit to select an ardent Bull Moos er as his right hand man, for at heart there isn't a staunch er democrat in Idaho than Broxon, even though he has shouting for the progressives lately. The efforts he has put forth in the last two cam paigns for the progressives, have in reality been in the in terests of the democratic par ty. The support he gave Roosevelt two years ago ma terially aided the democrats in carrying the state for Wil son. The Capital News all along has directed its fight mainly against the republi cans, and Broxon did more than probably any other man in the state to keep the "dem ocratic aid society" in exis tence during the reeent cam paign, and he was really entb tied to some reward for his services. But regardless of whether Broxon is a democrat or bull mooser, we believe that Mose acted wisely in selecting him as his private secretary. Broxon is thoroughly ac quainted with the conditions and needs of the state, and has the ability to edit all mes sages and state papers which Mr. Alexander* as governor, may desire to issue. i I In his campaign speeches Mose Alexander laid all the blame for high taxes in Idaho onto the shoulders of the gov ernors, except in the case of the Hawley administration, when he switched the blame to the republican legislature. He also declared that be was going to save the people of Idaho a million dollars a year, without the aid or consent of the legislature or any of the other state officials. Since the election Mose has been talking in an entirely different tone. In a recent interview he said he hoped the legislature would co-oper ate with him in reducing the cost of government. In an address before the county commissioners of the state which were in session in Boise this week, Mr. Alexan der said "the people of this state are looking to the legis lature and the boards of coun ty commissioners to reduce their taxes- If taxes are too high in the various counties, the commissioners are respon sible for it some political jumping jack. Two months ago he was tell - ing the people that Gooding, Brady and Haines, as govern ors, were responsible for the high taxes; now he is laying the blame onto the county commissioners. Mose is sure J. K. White, the present state dairy, food and sanitary inspector, says that he can run that department during the next two years on just one half what it has cost during the past two years. That is certainly encoure&ing news to the taxpayers of Idaho. That good work was done by James H. Wallis, during the years he was in charge of that department; no one denies, but Jim had a penchant for spending money, especially other people's money. There is no question but what he could have accomplished the same results on less-money had he been obliged to do so, but be succeeded in making a majority of the members of the last two sessions of the legislature believe that he needed large appropriations in order to obtain the results he desired. After the last legislature had appropriated $40,000 for the dairy, food and sanitary department, Mr. Wallis had the nerve to ask for an additional $2,500, but his request was denied. A Suggestion.

He was taken to Pueblo about a month ago and placed in a private Institution In the hope that he would improve un der expert treatment. But little en couragement was given from the first and later Ills condition was pro nounced to be beyond human skill. The care on Mrs. Fuller was too great to be continued indefinitely, so it was decided to take him to Evans ton where there are proper facilities for hiB care with constant attention.

Another engagements prevented us from attending the recital which was given at the opera house last Tuesday night by the Messrs. Chas. and Bert Shepherd and Irving Snow, so we are unable to comment upon the entertainment as we should like to have done. However, those with whom we have talked, who were present, have spoken of the recital as being by far the finest thing in that particular line that they had the pleasure of attending in this city. Each number on the progran was most heartily appreci ated by the audience, and the only regets we have heard expreyed were that the young men could not have prolonged the program for another hour or more. It is pleasing to the Examiner to know that Bear Lake county has produced two such noted musicians as the Shepherd Brothers have proven themselves to be, and we doubt not but what greater fame awaits them.
