THE OAKLEY HERALD
VOL 14
OAKLEY, CASSIA COUNTY, IDAHO, FRIDAY,
APRIL 22, 1910.
NUMBER 10
WOMAN IN POLITIC 8.
The hissing of President Taft
last week, while addressing a
woman's suffrage meeting in
Washington, D. C., was unfor
tunate from more than one
standpoint.
That the chief executive of a
nation in which every woman
is treated with a greater respect
than is accorded the sex in any
other country on the globe
argues illy the possession ol
the qualities that make for a
calm, wise and judicious admin
istration of executive affairs.
"Greater is he that rulctli him
self than he thac overcometh a
city"—or she, cither. Ami a wo
man, or man, either, who so far
forget themselves as to give way
to fits of childish petulance is not
fit to be trusted with the hand
ling of a weapon as powerful for
general ill as the ballot.
Herein Idaho we have woman
suffrage, and if it were not the
will of the majority of the male
voters of the state it could not
be so. Here in Oakley, where
every lady is a voter and every
woman is a lady, such an occur
rence as that of last week in the
nation's capital could not have
hapuened. The affair 1ms un
doubtedly given the national
suffrage movement * setback of
many years, and our Oakley sis
ters and their enfranchised sex
in other suffrage states of the
union can reflect that they have
only members of their own sex
to blame for it.
NOT AN ISOLATED CASE.
Now that the Idaho Southern
branch from Milner to this place
is in active operation, Oakley
people having freight to be ship
ped to them here may stand a
chance ot receiving it in some
thing like a reasonable time,
which seems never to have been
the case when shipped through I
Burley. Wherever the fault lies, |
whether at Burley or elsewhere,
household goods shipped to this
place from Elgin, Oregon—less
tha,n 500 mile—have not yet ar
rived, and the owner (the wri
ter) has been unable to even get
trace of them, though freighters
ftom Burlev ha ve been instructed
to be continually on the watch
and to make frequent inquiry for
them. A marked copy of the
paper containing this protest
will be mailed to each of the ex
ecutive heads of the Oregon !
Short Line and the O. R & x., j
and ii that should not bring re -1
suits, perhaps a suit for dam
j
ages mav.
° . *
Since the above was put in
type Freighter Thompson in
formed the writer
that the
boxes consigned had arrived
Tuesday at Burley, and would
he brought to Oakley t s soon as
the waybill followed, so that
there is a chance of receiving
the goods before railroading be
comes obsolete.
In defending a suit for damages
through the accidental death ef
an employe, the N. P. claimed
at Tacoma that as the deceased
employe was about to be mar
ried he was nervous, and not as
careful as he would otherwise
have been. Take it from the
writer, the time for him to te
nervous was .alter he married.
The lecture on "T he Building
of a City," before the Oakley
commercial club Tuesday night,
impressed some of the hearer*
with its resemblance to Josh
Billings' lecture on "Milk," from
which all mention of the lacteal
fluid was carefully excluded.
Oakley is getting ready for the j
battle for civic advancement. i
Text of The New Primary Law.
1
Under the new primary law no
man can become a candidate for
office and have his name placed up
on the official ticket of either of the
The following resume of the new state
piimary law has been published in a
number of the state papers. It gives,
briefly, the procedure by which nomina
tions are made for the varoous offices:
two leading parties except to be
nominated by a primary election.
There are two ways provided for
prospective office holders to get
their names on the licket which is
to be used at the primary elections,
which are to be held upon the same
day for all parties, which is the last
Tuesday in August, 1910, and every
two vetirs thereafter.
The first method provided is by
payment of fee to the secretary of
state lor stale and district offices,
and to the county clerk for county
offices. This fee is fixed at a level
sum of $2 ()• for all offices carrying
a salary of less than (1300. When
the salary exceeds that amount ar.
additional sum of one per centof th
amount above *1300 per annum is
red uired
The other method provided is by
petition in which case no fee need
be paid. For stale offices the peti
tion must be signed by three
cent of the party vote as determined
by the vote for governor at the pre
ceding election; if for adistrict office
the petition must be signed by a
least three per cent of the party
votes of the district; and if for a
county office by five per cent of the
parly voters of the county. The pe
titions f ir a state office are required
lO be signed by at least three per
cent of tiie voters of four counties;
for a countv office five per cent of
the party voters ot at least one
fourth of the precincts must be se
cured.
Signers of petitions may not sign
the petitions for more than one can
didate for the same office and must
signify their intention of supporting
the candidate for whom they petition.

days in which to secure petitions for

Within ten days for state and dis
trict offices and within five days for
county off-ces there shall be filed
formal written acceptance of tiomi
nation by the candidate, in defau.t
of which his name shall not be placed
upon the official ballot.
a
At least 25 days before the day for
the August primary the secretary of
state shall ceriify all nominations for
state and direct offic es to the county
clerk, giving the name, postoffice
diess and party designation of each
candidate entitled to appear on the
official primary ballot, together with
the office for which he is a candidate,
and the county clerk shall have pub
lisheti under the proper party desig
nation the list of state, district and
county candidates of each party,
giving the date of the primaries, the

not, then in any two likely to give
notice.
The ''Official Primary Ballot" shall
be separate for each party, uniform in
size, oolor and printing. A qualified
elector appearing at the primary poll
to vote shall be given a ticket of each
of the parties, but shall vote for can
didatesonly upou one, the other to be
given back and thrown into the waste
ballot box. The purposed this is to
prevent for instance a democrat vot
ug for republican caudidutes, or vice
versa.
Bv reason of the fact that a blank
space is left on each ballot it migut
appear that an opening was left for
just such voting, but the law provides
tnai should the name of a candidate
be written m this space who is a
candidate upon another ticket, such
ballots shad not be counted,
snould Governor Brady be a candi
date for nomination for governor by
the republicans, and the democrats j
believe that he would be a good can
didate for them l r have in opposition, I
they could vote for him but suen !
Thus
votes would not count in nominating
him. The result uvgnl be announced
' James H Brady. 20.000 votes as a
republican and 3 000 votes as a dem
ocrât,' but the nomination would only
be bis providing no other republican
got more republican votes, because
the democratic votes would be
thrown away. If he should happen
to gel more such votes than an v reg
ular democratic nominee he could, by
declaring his intention in writing,
accept the democratic nomination
thus tendered him, hut he would
have to ruu as a democratic candi
date.
Ofiicers of electson, registration,
counting and canvass of ballots, and
all things pertaining to the primary
election, aie regulated and governed
the same as for general elections,
and all expenses are to be paid by
the counties in just the same man
ner.
The expenses
which a candidate
may legally create are only "person
al expenses" which are defined to be
"oniy expenses directly incurred and/
paid by a candidate for traveling and'
for purposes properly incidental to
traveling and for writing, printing
and preparing for transmission any
letter, circular or other publication
not issued at regular intervals,
whereby he states his position or
other questions; foi stationery and
postage and for the necessary ex
pense of hiring I-all or other rooms
lor the purpose o holding public
meetings to address the voters and
others upon public questions and
matters relating to his caudidacy.
