Orofino, Idaho, July 4, 1912 - .10 .Of' The republican state platform passes the local option issue up with a two line recommendation, while the democrats give it five. Pretty hot endorsements for a question that has split both po litical parties of late from Bear Lake to Bonner. But then what's the use, let her rest. Clearwater county is to have its first annual fair during th» month of October. This Fair As sociation has now been in exist en^e^omC months. A committee bas been selected to furthei the interests of the association and to collect an exhibit that will be a credit to the magnificent re sources of the Clearwater country. This committee is working dili gently and effectively, but they cannot succeed alone. Even citizen of Clearwater count} should subscribe his or her dollai and become a member of this as sociation, and aid in every pos sible manner this committee in . preparing an exhibit of our re sources to place before the out side world, that will reflect credit and bring returns in the shape ot investors who will help us build up and develop our magnificent section. And now comes up the story written by one James Ford, a special writer for the Review, to the effect that the timber compan ies are after Senator Borah and have selected James Hawley, now leader of the Idaho democracy, to encompass his defeat. As further evidence of the fact the Elk River Sentinel, controlled by the Pot latch Lumber company, is out in a column editorial belaboring tht senator for his attitude in Chicago and his alleged inattention to business during late years. 11 this be really so, it must force an alliance with the Octopus and the Orofino Tribune. Just think ol it. And what would become of the taxpayer that the Tribune is attempting to flimflam into the be lief that the Republican and the timber companies are setting up nights in an endeavor to force him to pay all the taxes? Think of this, Mr. Republican Farmer, Governor Hawley is acceptable to the big timber interests and Mr. Borah is not. Mr. Hawley is the leader of the Idaho democracy and the demi-god of the faithful. Mr. Borah, the author of the three year homestead bill, the child labor law, the constitutional amendment to elect senators by the people, the bill securing $20 000,000 to Idaho for irrigation, is to be succeeded by a man whose only claim to distinction is the fact that he is the only Idaho ex ecutive since statehood who has called an extra session of the legislature to cure the palpable blunders of the first six months of his administration. ■ This legis lature squandered thousands of dollars of the taxpayers' money and accomplished nothing. This is the map that the big timber companies will ask you to elect in the place of William E. Borah, whose one term in the senate is crowded with more brilliant achievement for his fellowman than usually falls to the lot of one to accomplish who has spent life time in public service. Borah may have wandered after strange gods and kept counsel with those who would ultimately be his undoing, but his balance, mainly made up of legislation to lighten the burden of him who toils, should entitle him to first place in the affection of the citi zenry of Idaho. a Mr. Did Borah and Roosevelt Quarrel? The following of a purported split between Senator Borah and ex-Presi deut Roosevelt during the Chicago con vention ia related by Nebraskans who were in attendance at Chicago, to the Lincoln, Nebraska, Star, and published in that paper: Many newspaper readers were mystified last Sunday by the reports of the presidential ballot taken in the re publican national convention, which snowed the Idaho delegation voting 1 j for Taft and 7 for Cummins. The Idaho j representatives were led by Senator Borah, who had been one of Colonel Roosevelt's most nctive lieutenants in the fight during the week. The vote of that state had been given solidly to ! Roosevelt in all of the estimates made in advance. "Why the Idaho delegates insisted on voting for president, despite the re quest from Roosevelt that his friends decline to do so, and why none of the votes were cast for the third term candidate are explained by one or two of the Nebraska visitors to Chicago who h ive returned home. From a man who got the "Inside" of the matter, the story comes as follows: "Senator Borah had been on the ground for a week before the conven tion opened, taking part in the national committee sessions and making the best fight he could ft>r the seating of Roosevelt delegates in contest cases where any merit was shown. Roosevelt himself came to Chicago Borah was one of the leaders who ad v sed with him and carried out the moves decided upon in conference. "Borah doubted the expediency of some of the things that were proposed by the colonel. On one occasion he expressed his opinion that a certain line of procedure as suggested would not bring the desired result. Previous to this Borah had publicly stated that he did not intend to bolt the convention if Taft were nominated. "When the Idaho Senator ventured to differ with Roosevelt on the tactics to he pursued, it is reported that the latter flew into a rage and delivered this out burst: " 'You-, either be for me or against me.' "After that Senator Borah took no part in any of the Roosevelt activities, and his delegates on several roll calls voted on the presidential ballot, in dirept defiance of the colonel's personal request to his delegates, and gave him not a single vote. "It was currently reported at Chicago that Governor Hadley of Missouri had had a falling out with Roosevelt. Had ley admitted, after leaving Chicago, that he and the colonel had indulged in "a very plain talk." After a in to 11 ol of is to is of is Would Ruin Farmers As for the tariff Colonel Roosevelt said the democratic party had gone on record in favor of free entry of the nec essities of life. "Of course the first person that such a policy would harm would be the farmer," he continued. "The democratic party could do only one of two things. It might wink at its tariff plank and admit that it was writ ten for campaign purposes only, or it might attempt to enforce it, which would mean ruin to the country." Free trade, he said, would be so dis astrous that the country would soon come bark to the principle of protec tion. "I am not sure," he continued, "that the tariff is the chief factor in the high cost of living. So far as I can see the articles that have gone up in price most are butter, eggs and meat. Butter and eggs, of course, are not affected by the tariff. In regard to the meat I think that it is less the tariff than the trusts that have caused high prices." The above interview from Col onel Roosevelt should show the American farmer—who so implic itly trusts him—the danger of the proposed democratic legislation as outlined in the national plat form. With a portion of the re publican party blindly following Roosevelt it will be an easy matter for the democratic party, united as it is, to elect sufficient members to control both branches of the national government and inflict upon the country "a tariff for revenue only," a measure so dis astrous in 1893. Will the Ameri can farmer blindly follow Roose velt, who at best can carry but two or three states and has no hopes of controlling either branch of congress, and help make his ruin complete, as Mr. Roosevelt puts it, or will he see his danger and support the Taft ticket, which promises a continuance of his present prosperous condition? a Fire Report. In that part of district 1 of the forest service, covering Montana and north ern Idaho, weather conditions generally favorable, although the fire hazard is increasing daily, throughout the district on June 27 ended a very dry condition, occasioned by hot winds, which on the northern forests, threatened bad results in case a fire started.. Reports for end of week, however, indicate a lessened risk, with cooler weather. Fires occured to the number of 25, but four of which, on the Pend Oreille, Blackfoot, St. Joe and Beartooth, of any importance, about 175 acres, and dantfcged or de stroyed 40 acres of merchantable tim were Rains of were These covered 4*; men were employed, at a cost It is probable that the number and ber. 4' 0 f $«75. magnitude of fires will increase through July, since the late rains have been light, and the season of electric storms i s here. ! in high altitudes the conditions are more favorable than for several years, since snow still lies on the ground, and the vegetation and undergrowth will remain green for some time.
