CLEARWATER REPUBLICAN
61.60 Per Year In Advance.
Entered March 12, 1912, as sec
ond class mall matter in the post
jfflee at Orofino, Idaho, under the
Act of Congress of March 3, 1879.
AMERICANISM.
There must be no sagging back
in the fight for Americanism mere'y
because the war is over.
, . .
There are plenty of persons who
. , , K
have already made the assertion
. , ,, . ,
that they believe the American peo
.
pie have n short memory, and that
they intend to revive all the foreign
associations which most directly in
terfere with the complete American
ization of our people. Our principle
in this matter should be absolutely
simple.
In the first place, we should in
sist that if the immigrant who
comes here does in good faith be
come an American and assimilates
himself to us he shall be treated on
an exact equality with every one
else, for it is an outrage to discrim
inate against any such man because
of creed or birthplace or origin.
But this is predicated upon the
man's becoming In very fact an
American, and nothing but an
American.
If he tries to keep segregated
with men of his own origin and sep
arated from the rest of America,
then he isn't doing liis part as an
American. There can be no divided
allegiance at all.
We have room for one flag, the
American flag, and this excludes the
red flag, which symbolizes all wars
against liberty and civilization just
us much as it excludes any foreign
flag of a nation to which we are
hostile. We have room for but one
language here, and that is the Eng
lish language, for we intend that
the crucible turns our people out as
Americans, of Amercan nationality
and not as dwellers in a polyglot
boarding house, and we have room
for but one soul loyalty, and that is
loyalty to the American people.—
Theodore Roosevelt.
GOOSEBERRY RHYMES.
Jack and Jim, with highway vim,
Went up the Gilbert hill.
To remove highway objections,
And road Vigor to instill,
They endeavored, by persuasion,
To dispel the charge of grafter,
Then Jim came rambling down the
hill.
And Jack came tumbling after.
When Jack went down to Pot Hand,
For to sell his crop of beans.
He bought a highway tractor
Quite beyond the district's means;
As his time was thus apportioned,
We now ask without orrense,
If his labors were divided,
Why not divy the expense?
When the interested public
Met on Tuesday at the Rex, '
To hear good roads discussions
Of a needful highway tax,
They were treated to a picture.
Not u|K>n the highway screen.
When Fred Butler threw a monkey
wrench
Into the Blake machine.

IS GREAT ESTABLISHED FACT.
Skeptics Have at All Times Failed
to Disprove the Resurrection of
Easter Morning.
a
of
The lesson of Easter involves the
question of- the divinity of Christ
There are two great miracles upon
which Christianity rests. The mir
aculous birth and the resurrection
go together. If we believe one we
can believe the other. The former
is not subject to historical proof.
The latter has been proved and is
one of the best-established facts in
history.
Those who imagine themselves to
be too "modern" to accept the resur
rection as a literal fact, are delud
ing no one but themselves. There is
nothing new in the effort to explain
away the great event. Men have
been trying out explanations ever
since the guards who went to sleep
on duty around the tomb excused
themselves by saying the disciples
stole his body away while they
slept. Explainers have risen and
fallen as the ages have come and
gone and the deeper the explainers
have gone into the piatter, the more
apparent has become the fact. The
simple Gospel narratives gave
enough of the physical details of the
event to make It convincing; the
fact that the diciples themselves did
not expect the resurrection and were
slow' to believe it until they were
forced to believe it by his presence
among them; by exhibition of his
sacred wounds and the fact that it
became the burden of then- preach
ing in the future all go to make up
the indisputable collateral evidence
literal fact. Every one of
the disciples is said to have died a
martyr and his resurrection was |
their "testimony to martyrdom."

HAYS RESTORING
PARTY HARMONY
(Continued from page 1)
committee. These men are going to
control the fortunes of the party in
the next Congress, and the Republi
can National Chairman has a very
vital interest in whether themen who
and
with changing
are selected have the capacity
the vision to deal
America.
Pary solidarity is what Mr. Hays
is trying suavely and quietly to
bring about and there is much sig
nificance in his trip to Washington,
for with a special session beginning
toward the end of May or
abouts, there is little
Republicans to get together and
there
time for the
agree upon programmes of legisla
tion.
In the meantime, Mr. Hays
himself is losing no time in making
a systematic study through a body
of experts of the various questions
which the Republicans wll endeavor
to solve in the next Congress, for
every practical politician knows that
the country in 1920 will judge the
Republican party not by what it did
in the days of Cannon or Aldrich
but what it did in the two trying
years of r econstruction which are
ahead.
As for the League of Nations as
an issue, Republicans are not dis
turbed Mr. Taft's warm espousal
of the League and the stand taken
by men like Wikersham and Root
will, they contend, prevent the Dem
ocrats from making it a party Issue.
Much satisfaction is derived epecial
ly from the letter sent by Elihu
Root. Press dispatches from Paris
saying the Root amendments are
meeting with favor there will tend
to strengthen the impression that
the Republicans have, in a measure,
assisted in making the League of
Nations a vital international body.
As for the signers of the "round
robin," ratificaton of the treaty it
self will be the answer to that, and
no Republican of prominence is to
day prdicating the failure of the
Senate to ratify the compact that
may be eventually presented to the
upper house. This is largely due to
the cables from abroad saying that
the covenant is being rewritten to
meet Republican objection.
Mr. Hays reveals on the whole,
therefore, an optimism about the
outlook of the Republican party.
His talks with the various leaders
there have been earnest and persua
sive.. His plans of campaign organ
ization are meeting with favor. His
hand is on the political pulse of the
country constantly, and if the Re

Believing, unreservedly, in the general proposition
of good roads and desiring to aid and cooperate, in
every way possible, in the construction and mainten
ance of same, in Clearwater county, and particularly
in the Orofino Highway District; and further, feeling
the necessity and realizing the wisdom of raising suf
ficient funds, by bonding or otherwise, to make pos
sible the construction of standard highways on an ex
tensive scale, it is felt by a vast majority of the voters
and tax payers of the said Orofino Highway District,
that they are not opposed to carrying on this work
