THE OAKLEY EAGLE
NUMBER 17 MAY 24, 1 90ô. OAKLEY, CASSIA COUNTY, IDAHO, THURSDAY, VOLUME 10. The Political Situation. mg. age no Senator Fred T. Dubois has written a long letter to Demo cratic Chairman Charles II. Jack of central committee outlin side. in us of son mg the issue of the campaign. According to the political acu of this renowned and im men mortal statesman the only ques tion to be considered is "wheth of the er the power Mormon'church or the American citizens of Idaho are to dominate our politics." We hope that the American citizens ot Idaho will take the opportunity of illustrating to Mr. Dubois, that they are ready to take the matter into] their own hands now, and that they will henceforth ''dominate our For a number of pie polities." years mating himself and he forsees that his only show to remain in power is to ignore the issues ot the day, to break-up the politi cal parties, and to line up the masses of the state against a small handful of her citizens who Fred has done all the dom happen to belong to a certain religious faith, bois believes for one instance that there is any menace so far as the Mormon population is concerned, it is because he has lied about this people so long that he has come to believe his own falsehoods, and is so blind ed by prejudice that he cannot receive the truth. For two long years and more he has endeavor ed to besmirch the character of a Mormon Apostle, and has en deavored by all possible means, legitimate and otherwise, to pre judice the honored representa tives of the people of the United States against the senator of a sovereign state. In this he has signally failed. If the man had any honor in him, he would hang his head for shame for the investigation must have demonstrated to him, that with respect to all the attributes which go to make up a christain character, Reed Smoot is his superior. Smoot is an honest, and a virtuous man; he is pa tient and temperate; he exercises brotherly love and charity: is faithful loyal and true. He has attracted, indeed, the atten tion of tne nation on account of the integrity of his soul, the pur ity of his life, and the high ideals that his religion and trainirg have given him. Here is an extract of the creed that has made Reed Smoot, and is ^making |for good citizenship among the Mormon people of Idaho. ''We believe in being subject to Kings, Presidents rul ers and magistrates; in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law." Also If Fred T. Du He "We believe in being honest, true chaste, benevolent, virtuous j and in doing good to all men; in deed we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul, "We be-1 hope all things," we have endured mapy j things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is ; anything virtuous, lovely, or ol j good report or praiseworthy we ] seek after these things." lieve all things, we We commend these to Senator Du hois for his own practice, and to | the people of Idaho as a surety j that the senator wilfully violates j the ninth commandment of God i when he states that the Mor mon church is an "is an organi zation that stands against law, j order and decency. No, People ot Idaho, don't te misled by the wily Fred. The ! Mormons have not hurt him, and they won't hurt you. They are honest, industries, sober, temperate, patriotic, law-abid Much better on the aver There is mg. age than Fred himself, no menace from the Mormon side. The greatest menace, is that Fred T. Dubois should mis represent for another term this glorious, prosperous sovereign young statelfor another six years in the U. S. Senate. He is the issue, and if he insists let us fight it out on that ground. Let us have Brady, or Borah, or Gooding, or Beatty, or whoso ever you will, but in the name of Heaven let us not have any more of Dubois. NAME U. 8. SENATOR. Will the Republican State Con vention at their meeting in Poca tello name the choice of the peo pie for United States Senator to succeed Mr. Dubois? We sincerely hope that they will do so. This act by the con-1 THE MAN BEHIND THE PICK. There has been all kinds ot gush about the man who is ' 'behind"— And the man behind the cannon has been toasted, wined and dined, There's the man behind the musket and the man behind the fence; And the man behind his whiskers and the man behind his rent; And the man behind the plowbeam. and the man behind the hoe— And the man behind the the ballot and the man behind the dough: But they've missed one honest iellow, and I'm raising of a kick, That they didn't make a mention of the man behind the pick. Up the rugged mountain side, a thousand feet he takes his way, Or as tar into darkness from the cheerful light of day; He is shut out from the sunlight in glimmer of the lamps, He is cut off from sweet air in the sickly fumes and damps; He must toil in cramped positions, he must take his life in hand. For he works in deadly peril, that but few can understand; But he does it all in silence and he seldom makes a kick. Which is why I sing the praises of the man behind the pick. He unlocks the bolted portals of the mountains to the stores. Hid in nature's vast exchequer in her treasure house of ores; Heappliea akeydynamic and the gati > are backward rollel, And the ancient rocks are riven to theirsecret heart of go'd : Things of comfort and of beauty, and of usefulness are mined, By the brave, heroic fellow, who toils on all begrimed, And he never makes a murmur, and seldom makes a kick, So I lift my hat in honor to the man behind the pick. J. A, Edgkrton, in the Critic. vention, will bring the ^election j much nearer to the voters and give them better opportunity of expressing their experience than where the whole matter is left to Aside trom the state legislature, j the feet that we believe Hon. VV. E. Borah to be the logical candi ; date as well as the choice of the j masses for the important posi ] tion named, we are convinced that this procedure will save the state law-makers the loss of | much valuable time; time that j ought to be spent in the enact j ment of legislation in keeping i W1 th the rapid growth ot our - voun S vigorous state, will not weaken the party. j It is feared by some pessimists that to allow the convention to name the man who is to receive ! the vote of the legislature for. ! U. S. Senator will weaken the ! party in that aspirants for the high office who were not success fid before the convention will re lax their energy during the com paign—that these stalwarts will sit down in their tents and sulk, or pout, thus withdrawing from the party their valuable support. We do not believe any such talk, and in the vigor and strength of a faith in the stal wart leaders of our party, many of whom are worthy the high honor, and eminently quali fied to fill the office with efficiency, to believe any such baby talk. It is an unwarranted insult to the manhood and staunch Re publicanism of our political leaders to indulge in any such insinuation. As a citizen of Cas sia county I resent such state ments, preferring to think bet ter of mankind. We believe that men are true republicans, loving the principles of the party and willing to work j for the extension of Republican , faith; not because ot any selfish interests, but because the party is making for America the great est and most glorious govem ment on earth, The time will come in the his tory ot our party when the ing of the U. S. Senator at State Conventions will be the rule and not the exception. Let us then lead out in this direction and name the next senator at the Pocatello Convention. nam Oaklf.y Citizen. Oakley, May 19, '06. We have printed several articles in these columns from the pen of Dist 10, Fruit inspector John Adams ad vising how and when to spray and how to make fruit growing a success in this locality j Wehopehis articles have been read CLEAN UP YOUR J And Grow a Few Apples. If we could and will be heeded, but receive some guarantee that such articles would receive favor able consideration from a con siderable number of our readers we would furnish such material from time to time as would make our country a veritable fruit dis tnct one favorable attention from far and , and would be a source of I ; that would attract ! near profit to our growers. Idaho's apples have a most en viable reputation, none, that have a better or surer market. There will be no ques tion about the market fora good never. There are many years, perhaps Why, then do not some of our farmers turn their attention to apple growing? It would pay t irec times as well as wheat[ alfalfa, potatoes or any of the ordinary crops that are com monly grown. There has been a great demand right here at home during the past year for apples at $1.25 per bushel. Don't you think you can afford to raise them at that price, farmers? There are a number of orchards about here now that with a lit tle care could be put upon a good paying basis. If the trees were trimmed up a bit so that the strength should not all go to worthless twigs and off shoots, and if the soil about them should be tilled and fertilized so that it would retain its strength, they would soon become valuable producers. It is a great mistake to think that an orchard can be profitable when permitted to run perfectly wild, but it is true that it will be wondrously re numerative with very little at tion, Neither weeds nor grass should be permitted to grow among the trees, but it should be kept absolutely free from all vegetation and in a loose pulver ized condition. We are happy to note that a few of our people are making good beginning in this direction and we hope that oth ers will follow suit. We can predict success to those that are caring for their orchards, just passed a very promising young orchard in the Basin set tlement that is a credit to its owner, Mr. John H. Fairchild. We hope others will fall in line and that we shall soon have ap ples in plenty to supply the local market and some to send away is a his in the \\< to our neighbors. of : OAltl.EY - BURLEY STAGE LINE , Daily Except Sunday.
