Davis Stands For Efficient State Government
Of, For and By ALL the People of Idaho.
Not for One Special Class of the People.
Daviß will give Idaho a plain, hon
est business administration. His
acknowledged business ability will
be felt in the various departments
of the state, and his sound judgment
and honest methods, his impartial
attitude toward all classes, will es
tablish confidence and be a guaran
tee that Idaho is a safe state in
which to invest one's money.
Idaho is undeveloped. It would
be a CALAMITY at this time to do
a lot of experimenting with untried
Socialistic doctrines that would
drive every dollar of capital out of
our state.
He is not a political crook, therefore
he knows he cannot reduce state
taxes $1,000,000 a year, and is too
honest to steal votes by deceiving
the people.
Davis is not making promises he
cannot fulfill. He is not in favor of
freak legislation, nor will he, as
governor, be the governor of one
special class against all other classes
of citizens of Idaho. He will be
the people's governor.

Each wooden cross, that points to

Demands that you do your share.
Each Belgian babe, that has lost

The fatherless, motherless too.
Cry for succour, but not in vain
For their cries are heard by you.
