CLEARWATER REPUBLICAN (1.50 Per Year In Advance. . Entered March 12. 1912, as sec ond class mail matter in the post .»fflce at Orofino, Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. ROND ELECTION STOPPED BY INJUNCTION. The Board of Commissioners of the Orofino Highway District were enjoined from holding a special elec tion, Saturday, April 19, to vote on bonding the district for $150,000.] The case will come up in the May term of the District court. The in junction proceedings were not actu ated by an unwillingness to vote in favor of bonds, but a lack of con fidence in the proper handling of funds, by the present dominatng in fluence in the affairs of the Orofino Highway District. The people have not yet forgotten the rejection of court house bonds, the Nease Cruise, the Swinton deal, the Clearwater bridge scandal and the load of debt, amounting to$] 26,000, that was in herited from the powers that for merly dominated the county gov ernment, and which evil influence r.ow controls the administration of the Orofino Highway District. Another objection to voting on bonds at this time, was the com plications that might arise in the affairs of the lately created Grange wont Highway District. Again the Lewis and Clark Highway survey has not yet been made and no in in T. telligent estimate can be made of ihe cost. In fart the bond propo of eition, at this time, was premature, and was an attempt to perpetuate selfish control of the Oro fino Highway District, and saddle upon this community an unsatisfact ory dominance that would be diffi cult to dispose of. apparent to -OUR GREATEST NEED-BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION. The greatest need of our country is injection of business principles into public administration. , We must have a system of gov ernment and we must have men to administer and execute that govern ment. get All this being true, government therefore resolves itself into a bus iness, pure and simple, and the of ficeholders who conduct tliat busi and One ness are the employes of liie public and nothing else. But we must recognize that we have among us a distinct class known as politicians. They are af flicted with an itch for ofice, which is really a disease. The mercenary office-seeker should be the easiest to deal with when we have made up our minds to clean this whole business up. It should be no trouble whatever to obliterate front the atmosphere the stench of the cheap professional politician. Every community is well ac quainted with that species. What they see is an easy living at the public expense. Their idea is to sit in an office smoking cigars with their feet on a desk and get a sal ary for it out if the taxes that the rest of us pay on what we have acquired in property by endless in dustry and hard work. Industries and. business must not only pay the bijls for the services of the professional but surfer intol erable interference fre.n that class. —The Manufacturer. the to to will do the do.
