reat wave of Roosevelt's popular

voulil have been defeated upon his
vn merits. Thus even works the

Blackfoot Democrat: The vic
or v of the Republican party
hroughout the country can only be
oustrued as a sweepfng indorse
îeut of Republican principles and
n utter lack of faith in the Demo
ratic party or its candidate. While
ndge Parker was a clean, upright
nd honest man, he had not been
easured in statecraft as his oppo
ent had and the people were ap
areutly not ready to accept an un
nown quantity. As between the
vo platforms of the two parties
here was little to choose and cer
inly but little in the Democratic
latform to salve the estranged fol
-wers of Bryan.
The declaration of President
oosevelt to, under no circum
tances. become a candidate for re
lection, gives the president an op
rtunity to leave politics out of his
dministration and give the people
good, clean term. He is a man
f great strength of character,
trictly American and we believe
e means business, therefore we
ke off our hat to Teddy and may
is spurs grow sharper.

Beet Raising in Idaho.
Salt Lake Tribune: "Sugar beet
raising along the Snake river val
ley in Idaho is promising a great
future. Joseph E. Rolker, repre
senting a large sugar beet seed
house in Germany made the state
ment at the Knutsford. Mr. Rolker
is back after a visit in the section
of which he speaks. It is near St.
Anthony. He made an inspection
of the farms and the conditions
with a view to seeing what the
future would demand in the way of
The country is excellently
adapted to cultivation of this crop, "
said Mr. Rolker, "and the farmers
are doing splendidly. They raised
average crops of fourteen tons to
the acre, which is phenomenal.

bigger areas the beet sugar cultiva

increase their output. As to the
factories in that section, they are
excellently equipped and handled.

While the plans of the companv

that the first extention will be to
Lander, and that from there it will
head direct for the Ogden gateway.
The line will be built to reach into
the rich Big Horn country, at
Thermopolis, and this will be ex

the Yellowstone park. The line to

of the new line in operation by that
It is believed here that this an
nouncement of the Northwestern
will head off the Wyoming State
Railway, which proposed to build
into the Shoshone country, espec
ially in view of the refusal of the
Secretary of the Interior to grant

It is reported that the enterprise
is backed by strong financial inter

It is independent of any other road, |

came into harbor last night.
Prior to the destruction of the
destroyer the Taotai had officially
notified the Japanese consul that
her disarmament had been complet
ed and ammunition removed and
the machinery disabled.
The Russians with the exception
of one man, left the destroyer dur

lit two slow fuses and blew up the
vessel. There were three dull ex
plosions which were scarcely dis
cernable a hundred yards away.
Almost simultaneously the Ratsto

and it was believed that rhe Rus-<
sian vessel, under cover of the
storm, attembpted to escape from
Port Arthur. The correspondent
of the Associated Press succeeded
in reaching the destroyer after her
arrival here but was not allowed to
board her. The captain of the
Chinese cruiser Hai Yung was the
first person to go on board the
Ratstoropny. He held a brief con
ference with the commander, after
which the Ratsoropny came further
in the stream and anchored in the
same spot that the destroyer Rye
shitelni did last August before she
was cut out by the Japanese. "
St. Petersburg.--The Associated
Press learns from a High General
who is with the Emperor this after
noon and the contents' of General
Stoessel 's message, that all talk of
Stoessel asking for instructions to
surrender is absolutely false. "Only
when the last biscuit is eaten and
the last cartridge is fired will the
garrison surrender the fortress.
This I can state positively," said
the General. The General's word
may be accepted as reflecting the
views of the Emperor himself.
' 'General Stoessel knows the second
Pacific squadron is on the way,"
added the General.

Sovereign Makes Statement.
James R. Sovereign, the former
labor leader, who has recently re
turned from a campaigning trip in
the east gives the following inter
view to the Spokesman-Review on
the Republican landslide:
"The overwhelming victory of
the Republican party at Tuesday's
election was due to the factional
differences in the Democratic party
and the personal popularity of
President Roosevelt." said Mr.
"The Democratic party was split
asunder on different issues, he
continued, "which was partly re
sponsible for its defeat. But you
can not down the Democratic party.
The south will vitalize it.
"There was nothing on the sur
face to indicate the great upheaval
that was about to take place. The
political meetings I addressed in
Indiana, New York, Illinois, Dele
ware and West Virginia were large
ly attended and enthusiasm was
unbounded. I closed the campaign
at Fort Wayne, Ind., to an audi
ence of over 2000 people. The hall
was unable to accommodate those
desiring to attend and two over
flow meetings weje held. Previous
to the meeting a parade took place,
which was over two miles long.
"Similar scenes were enacted in
the other parts of Indiana and in
the other states: At several places
the parades were headed by tin
plate workers who had been thrown
out of work, at others by glass
blowers who were out of employ
ment. At Marion, Ind., the pro
cession was led by the drum corps
from the soldiers' home, and many
of the inmates marched iu the par
ade. There were no indications of
the strong undercurrent flowing
"While campaigning in Indiana
I addressed 43 meetings. It was
my pleasure to occupy the rostrum
with Mr. Bryan at three of them.
I spoke once at Chicago and once
in New York City."
When asked as to his opinion
regarding the Socialistic vote, Mr.
Sovereign said; "Anyone can
build up a party to a certain point,
if no resistance is offered. A party
can be started having for its plat
form the milennium, and it will
gain a considerable following. Year
àfter year the vote of the prohibi
tion party remains stationary.
The Socialist party can be built up
to a maximum of 3,000,000 votés.
When, however, any resistance is
offered to it, it will founder upon
the rocks. ' '
Mr. Sovereign has been offered
a position with a lecture bureau
and will probably accept. His
subject will be "The Errors of So
cialism and the Inapplicability of
Socialism to Modern Civil ization."
Morrison to Stay in Boise.
Governor Morrison will remain
in Boise, after his term of office
expires, to enter the law business
with J. T. Pence, says the Boise
"Governor Morrison has let it
be understood that he will continue
to be a resident of Boise after his
term of office expires aud that in
the future this city will be his le
gal residence. About a year ago
he formed a law partnership with
J. T. Pence, the well known Dem
ocratic leader, and has devoted his
spare time from his official duties
at the office. After the first of Jan
uary he will devote all of his time
in the law office. He will proba
bly maintain his connection with
his old law office in Caldwell, but
that city will know him no more
as a resident. ' '
Chas Coxson, proprietor of the
St. Anthony Livery Feed and Sale
stable, wishes to notify his many
patrons that owing to the mateiial
increase in the cost of feed stuffs,
he will be compelled to slightly
raise his prices for feeding and
stabling horses. Mr. Coxson has
for 11 years conducted a livery
stable at the same old stand, aud
the prices charged now are the
same as charged years ago, (Cleve
land prices) when hay was only
worth $3 delivered and oats were
35 to 40 cents per bushel. Hay is
now $6 delivered in town and oats
are worth $1.25; and it can be seen
at a glance that horses cannot be
fed at the same prices now that
they could in those good old Cleve
land days. In consequence of this
fact Mr. Coxson has decided that
from this date there will be a slight
increase in the price of board for
horses. Mr. Ccxson desires to
notify the public that he will give
personal attention to the business
and guarantee satisfaction.
Reform School Turned Over.
The Pocatello Tribune gives the
following account of the turning
over of the Industrial Reform

Anthony, which gives a fine pres
sure in case of fire.
A complete system of heating
and lighting is installed, the light
ing being the Nerust system of
electric lamps, that are becoming
very popular in the east. A com
plete plant with boilers, engine and
dynamo are installed and tests
proved they worked perfectly.
Some of the more important
rooms of the buildings are carpen

shop, storage, kitchen, engine
room, boiler room, dining room,
public sitting room, girls' dormfto
ry chambers, sewing room, etc.

ing, burned the brick, 250,000, on
the ground near by, and had his
stone hauled from the Tetons. A
