Montpelier, Friday, Nov. g. 1S18
The day preceding the election a
loading article appeared in the Boise
Capital News under the caption, "As

good reading then and is yet good
to read. The article, an editorial, is:
"The Nonpartisan league leaders

with an appeal to class hatred and

furnishes an illuminating illustra
lion of the difference between the
French and the German strategical
methods—a difference that has Its
source no doubt In the fundamental
unlikeness between the French mindj
and temperament and the German.

deliberately weakened half bla dlvia

tremendous Instrument he struck.

the Allied leader, know, but in

to meet the immediate situation. His
blows are swift, dealt now here, now

the enemy's weak spots. Whereas
each of the steps hi Ludendorff'a
Plan had to be followed by a pause
of live or six weeks while the next

prepared, Foch gives the enemy no
