SUBSCRIPTION R A TES One Year OO Six Months 1 OO Three Months 35 Advertising Rates on applicf lion The Idaho legislature has set tled down to active business. Already more has been trans acted than has been accom plished by the average fusion legislature With tliree-fourths of the session gone. The compari sort is especially strong when made with respect to any fusion sessions when a United States senator has been elected. The republican legislature of 1903 or ganized and elected a senator in the same time that the fusion legislature of the past has de voted to organization—-the se lection of clerks and janitors, etc. With the fusionists it has been a fight for a few measley salaries. With the republicans the idea has been to dispose of those matters with the least pos sible delay and expense that the legislature might settle down to the serious business of the ses sion. Already a large number of measures are ready for action. Some of them are meritorious, but for the most part they re present the views of individuals who have failed to take into con sidération the interests of the state as a whole. These, of course, will be sent to tlie graveyard. The disposition of the legislature seems to be to enact a few good laws rather a lot of poor, or even mediocre measures. Furthermore, it has been found necessary to cobble up a lot of legislation of fusion legislatures. Some of these measures had they been proper ly drafted, would have been beneficial to the state, but they were thrown together so care lessly that they have stood dead letters on our statute books. An example of this is furnished in laws that provide no penalty for their violation. It seemed to have been the aim of the fusion legislatures to hoodwink the people into believing that they had given them some measures that would benefit them. They said this or that should not be done but failed to fix a penalty for the violation of the enact ments, which, of course, rendered them nugatorp. There are sev eral examples of that kind. In other cases more serious objec tions are raised. Take the mat ter of the codes for example. The fusion legislatures and ad ministrations foisted onto the people oi this state a set of codes that cost this state the sum of $32,000, and today they are not worth the paper they are printed on in so far as being the laws of the state. They were never adopted by the legislature and the present session hardly dare adopt them because they do not know what is in them that should not be there or what of the old laws that should be there were left out by the commissions that cobbled them. Idaho's laws should be codified, there is no question about that, but they should be codified right. It is the opinion of some of the best posted men in the legislature, of both political parties, that the codes as printed should be repudiated and a new codification ordered T'v.« .. , ., thlhnd Q wnrlr nf so ! üe . 1 J lea of the bad wot k of the fusion legislatures that it is up to the present legislature to remedy. lative reapportioimient. Two years ago the legislature enacted a reapportion mind of every fair minded man and wo man in the state. It was based on noth ing excepting a determination on the part of the fusion leaders to steal the 1908 legislature. Small counties that \yere counted safely democratic, were given representation entirely out of pro portion to their population or voting strength and large republican counties were correspondingly curtailed. Of course this chicken came home to roost. Such poultry always does. The repub lican party, in the great victory won last November, profited by the attempt ed thett of democracy without having been any party to the shameless act. But the republicans do not propose to enact any such a reapportionment act. Thu unanimous sentiment is in favor of a law giving each county the represen tation it is entitled to under a fixed basis. Some favor the vote on gover nor cast last November. Others favor the registration as a basis, and still others urge it would be fairer to strike an average between the registration, the vote and the population according to the last census. However, whatever is doue, the people can rest assured that each county will be given fair repre sentation. i J. H. McPherson, Dentist. ,, uv uuu t olir lie .egauon m uo.s, land the Agricultural College, an insti THE REFORM SCHOOL. The Journal sincerely hopes that the reform school bill, so far as it locates lhat institution in Fremont county, will meet its Waterloo in the senate. Fre mont county should not throw it., op portunities away on a reform school There are other things far better, and within the reach of our legislators. \\ e do not desire, in the least degree, to throw cold water on the ambitions of our aspiring legislators. The motive which has actuated our representatives in bringing home some trophy from the scene of legislative carnage is praise worthy; but we object to Fremont county being put off with a reform school. What good will it be to us after the money appropriated tor land and buildings has been expended? It brings nothing to us only incorrigibles and a bad name. When one mentions Blackfoot, all they think about is the insane asylum. It will be the same with Fremont. This is not the proper county for it anyhow. It should be lo rated in Boise, where the penitentiary is. and the Journal hopes Ada county will get it. for it is hers, by right M hy don't our delegation in Boise tntion which is worth a hundred Re i'irm schools to us. It may take more hard work to get this institution, but it will be something we will always look to with pride and gratification, and will build up the country and give us lires tige. We suggest to our legislative delega tion that they swap off the reform school, if it is not too late, and in re turn get Ada and her friends to help pull the Agricultural college to Fre ni'int. Rexbnrg Journal. Wallis has tipped his hand to the rtiiuinn laiMt* me i aie nom »dl to *'.)() per quarter Which would allow kin for pub lishing this statement. ....HIT. n.is tijijjMi ms nanu to cue i people of Fremont county in the above | article. This is his "tip " in plain : English: If Rexbnrg cannot land the I Reform school, we (us Rexbnrg fellows) ! will see that Fremont county loses it i entirely. There are a few ''hide bound" ! would-be politicians around our sister I town who engage in the above under handed tactics to defeat any measure meant for the welfare and advancement of the comity, if it is not for Rexburg's special benefit. We do not consider it wrong for en thusiastic individuals to lend every pos sible means of assistance to the promo tion and progress of the city or town in which they live, but those who take a position that if we can not have the di reel benefit derived from industrial institutions located within our borders, we will see to it that our sister village is not the recipient of public benefits: are short sighted and selfishness their motive; this to the financialloss of the people of the county. There is but little chance of the estab lishment of an agricultural college in Idaho for several years; let us take that which is within reach of us at present. We are quite sure that Editor Wallis does not diet himself from Mon day until Saturday upon the anticipa tion of some one inviting him to a chicken dinner on Sunday, but cats corn bread and potatoes (like other edi tors) three times daily, and takes a chance at the good things enjoyed by others when an opportunity affords. Let us nnite in one effort to encour age our legislators in this, the first ef fort to secure something for Fremont county. When in the dim distant future the establishing of an Agricul tural College comes up, we have fighters in Fremont county who are competent and willing to devote their time and money, if need be to the securing of the Agricultural College. There is surely as much room in Fremont countv for two institutions as Ada county has for three or four. Let the county secure the school and the location of the buildings and grounds be an after consideration. Don't, admit your inability to cope with St. Anthony in securing the location, but get in and make a bid for i( when the time comes. Let's have the Industrial School. The Fremont County News rises to inform the taxpayers that the Peak will rob them of their houses and lands. Ninety dollars per quarter, g - 1 for d - ? Oh! Whoop!' Publishing d -? the commissioners' d —, — n , pro ceedings? Whoopee! Dear brother don't you really think yon are somewhat of a fool? Wouldn't you take $90? Are you aware of the! fact that a law has been passed, since the Fremont County News contracted to publish the commissioners' proceed ings and all the legal notices for $70 per quarter, requiring the official paper to publish once a year a complete state ment of the business transacted by the respective county officers? We refer you to the files of your own paper and you will find about April, 1903, that the paper you proudly boast as the editor of. published the first annual statement which took about a page of table work, and which must be run two issues. This alone is worth $40 per year and the county attorney, (J. D. Millsaps. democrat,) recommended to the board of commissioners that, owing to the publishing of this statement, they sliohld raise the rate from $70 to $90 per We do not know whether it is the de sire of our contemporary to really lie or not, but it appears to us that he infers that we are receiving $90 per quarter for publishing the proceedings of the county commissioners alone. publish any legal notices coming from the respective county officials, such as warrant calls, assessor's monthly stale-! meats, treasurer's notices to creditors 1 superintendent's calls for various teach- ! ers'meetings, etc. Brother, the Peak ! would be the last paper on earth to kick ! it the News should get $150 per (quarter ' for doing the official printing, because it is worth it. Weave not "rats" and . ---------- jy hope our contemporary has some kindly feeling for respectable living 1 prices. ~ j As to the job work, our prices will be ! the same charged our local business I meu and on bound work we will dupli- i cate the prices of the Fremont County! News, when printers were running it ill ! years gone by. The News man says he never heard Mr. t annon kick on $79 per (quarter ' We have, and Mr. Cannon said he never liiaae a cent, but it cost him mon» than he received, Mr. Gannon made this I statement in the auditor's office: "The ' board of commissioners would have been justified in raising the amount to! $100per quarter.'' The News man is running a big bluff now. He has come to the conclusion inat we are troubled with "cold feet. " when it comes to an argument with his I S l S royal nibs So far the News has never advanced an argument of any kind His slurs and unmanly scrib hlings are not worthy of attention nor are they of a nature which creates favor lor that journal, but rather remind one of the mntterings of a 14-year-old school boy. His misrepresentation of facts is well understood by his readers, and he is of Mich little consequence politically and otherwise, deserving only tlie name of "turn coat," that his name is a sort of a sore eye to the leaders of demo cracy. Avery Moore, democratic repre sentative from Idaho county, is lending his assistance to the passage of the Fre : mont founty Reform ' School bill. Avery is looking to Fremont for votes in the future. Tendency of the Times. The tendency of medical science is toward preventive measures. The best thought of the world is being given to the subject It is easier and better to prevent than to cure. It has been fully demonstrated that pneumonia, one of the most dangerous diseases that medi cal men have to contend with, can be prevented by the use of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. Pnenmonia always re sults from a cold or froui an attack of influenza (grip), and it has been observ ed that this remedy counteracts any tendency of these diseases toward pneu monia. This has been fully proven in many thousands of cases in which this remedy has been used during the great prevalence of colds and grip in recent years, and can be relied upon with im plicit confidence. Pneumonia often re sults from a slight cold when no danger is apprehended until it is suddenly i discovered that there is fever and diffi | cnlty in breathing and pains in the chest : and then it is announced that the pa I tient has pneumonia. Be on the safe ! side and take Chamberlain's Cough i Remedy as soon as the cough is con ! traded. It always cures. For sale by I all druggists Subscribe the for Peak.
