Orofino, Idaho, July 4, 1912
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
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.
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
"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
" 'You-, either be for me or
"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."
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
"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?
