They did not forget the Nease cruise. They did not tude. To have elected Mr, Zeleuka a a it foyget the Orofino bridge. They did not forget that the republican coun ty board took up the burden with a debt of $126.000 on hand, ar.-J in less than four years placed Clear water county on a cash basis, a rec ord not approached by any other county in Idaho. To have deteated the republican county commlsrioo ers would have been base ingrati as a county commissioner would have been equivalent to saying that this county does not want a busi ness administration; it does not want decent administration. It ap proves of waste and graft and tn competency, and condemns the re publicans for refusing to pay that Nease cruise outrage. It approves of that sort of administration that It got under the former administra tion of a Jim Blake county hoard, when Frank Zelenka was chairman of the board. MR.

Thus do the people themselves plaça a premium on faithful, competent service, and say to their publto ser vants that those who do well shMU be suitably rewarded.

For what incen tive would there be for any man to be faithful to Clearwater county? Nor is this all tUb election of 11*. Kauffman means in this county.
