Cordell, one of our successful farmers of this section, on Saturday of last week entered a barber shop and suffered a complete trim of his hair and whiskers, experience with a knight of the razor , and shears for more than twenty-five years and his changed appearance baffled some of his closest friends. He This was Mr. Cordell's first «tales that his harboring during the P ast lias been carried on strictly within Mr. Cordell is the Lewiston Solves Its Problems The action of the city council of Lew-; iston in submitting to its people two ! bonding proposals, one for the purchusc : and improvement of a fair sile, park and grounds for the Northwest Live . ÄaSÄ£t!; Clearwater, is significant and worthy of notice. The live stock show, when permanently established as an annual event, promises to be the event in this section of the state, equalling in im importance Pendleton's Pound Up, ( Spokane's Apple Show or Portland's Hose l-'air, as an advertising medium aml even more substantial as an in -1 dustrial stimulant. The construction ! of a bridge across the Clearwater will fill a demand of long standing, and ; Le wist on evidently is not going to wait 1 any longer tor an appropriation from the state. The bridge will not only ; connect Lewiston with the site of one of her future suburbs but will age the building of more and better roads in the district north of tile Clear water. These things, taken with the recent improvements of the thorough fare leading to the Lewiston Orchards, show a commendable spirit on the part ol Lewiston business men who are try ing to make dreams come true. encou r Frank Marquette Frank Marquette, republican candi date for the nomination lor treasurer on the county ticket, is a resident of Ahsahka, having resided there lor the past fourteen years, lie came here from Michigan, where he was formerly employed by the Cleveland Saw Mill company of Cleveland, Ohio, as fore man for a number of years. lb' eame to Idaho at the solicitation of Dominick Cameron, and took charge of all river operations, such as the building of piers, booms, etc., for the firm of Cameron, Tifl'ney Sc (hi., and was a large loser by their failure some mouths later. He Intel Brothers and was foreman lor McGill & Jump in their extensive river opera tions for several years, and always commanded the respect and confidence of his employers. He suffered and in jury to his foot last winter, which has since necessitated several operations and caused him to be practically laid up for the past four months. He is, how ever much better at this time and wit it every indication of a speedy recovery. In conclusion we would stuie that Mr. Marquette is in every way qualified lor the important position and lie solicits your votes at the coming primaries July 30th. • worked for McClain I Political candidates are thicker than Hies around molasses this week. I host* visiting our berg at present are: I'. 11. Blake, AI. Harper, Harry Woods, demo cratic board or county commissioners; Blair Hoar, deputy assessor; A. E. Holmberg, democratic candidate for state senator; C. R. Wiley, democratic j candidate for representative; John Gormnn, republican candidate forasses sor; Samson Snyder, republican candi date tor aasessor; Louis Soderberg, re publican candidate for commissioner ! from the second district; James Rod Elk River hems gers, republican candidate for office of probate judge; Julian Dobson, repub lican candidate for treasurer. Some of the republicans of Elk River are wondering at the actions of some so-called republicans from Orofino. Among these same republicans, notice ably one,' John Gorman, who by the way carried a letter of introduction from William Deary, manager of the 1'otatch Lumber company, substantial ing his citizenship, etc., was in constant communication with local democrats, and made his headquarters while here with E. II. Hilton, recently arrested for bootlegging and against whom several 1 charges of a similar nature are now In* ing investigated by the authorities of : Clearwater county. 11' Mr. Gorman is a republican candidate his associates here certainly belie his republican principles. Ills letter from Bill Deary, while it may do him some good here! will surely not win him many votes among the farming class. This later limiter should he kept from the cholerie old Tribune, or which Mr. Gorman is a staunch supporter, else in its zeal to punish those who would fraternize with the octopus it should turn its venom •■noil its patron. I 1 Qualifications Foi Voting at Primary 1 Many people ure laboring under a mistaken idea that to vote at a primary 1 election they shall have resided in the Election. state six months prior to the time of ! voting. This is not the case, as the law •xL.i.Hti Sv „ I h I « , plainly states that if a person shall lun'e resided in the state six mouths at the time of the general election, he or she is eligible to vote at a primary election. So anyone having resided in Idaho for three months previous to the primary election is clearly under the law en titled to vote. j Editor Republican: I have been asked how 1 stood on the matter of U.
