A good dog lways brings his fleas with him. 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 seed. 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. ' 'As they plow deeper and take bigger areas the beet sugar cultiva tors of Idaho are going to greatly increase their output. As to the factories in that section, they are excellently equipped and handled. The country is to my mind excelled by none." Railroad Extension through Great Northwest. Omalia, Neb., Nov. 12.—The Chicago & Northwestern is headed for the coast. Official announce ment was made today at the office of General Manager Bidwell in this city that the line will be ex tended westward from Casper, Wyoming, at once. The Wyoming & Northwestern Railway company has been incor porated in Wyoming by officials of the Chicago & Northwestern and the incorporators will be trustees for the first year. While the plans of the companv are not fully developed it is stated 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 tended later to the Southern line of the Yellowstone park. The line to Lander will parallel the route of the proposed Belgo-American com pany's line. It is stated that a right of way has already been obtained and that the work of construction will com mence in the early spring. The Shoshone reservation will be thrown open for settlement next summer, and it is proposed to have a portion of the new line in operation by that time. 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 oil privileges on the reservation lands to the Belgo-American syndi cate which is backing the road, and in behalf of which Governor Chatterton recently made a trip to Washington. Cheyenne, Nov. 12. Articles of incorporation of the Colorado, Wy oming & Idaho Railway company, with a capital stock of $10,000,000, were filed with the secretary of state here today by E. S. Cheno wetli and John D. Milliken of Kan sas City. The projected road runs from Denver via Laramie, thence northwesterly through the counties of Albany, Carbon, Natrona, Sweetwater, Fremont and Uinta, thence southwesterly to Boise, Ida ho. It is estimated the length is 820 miles, 325 of which will be in Wyoming. It is reported that the enterprise is backed by strong financial inter ests in New England and Chicago. It is independent of any other road, | and will penetrate the finest unde-j veloped and scenic section of the j state. A preliminary survey has been made and work will be com- j menced at once. Sunday next an improved train service will go into effect on the St. Anthony branch. The train from Salt Lake to Butte will be discontinued and will run direct from Salt Lake to St. Anthony, the same as last winter. The train will arrive in the evening at 8:30, an depart in the morning at 8:50. This change is very satisfactory to the people of Fremont county. Chicago Wheat. Chicago wheat is $1.16 to $1.17. RUSSIANS BLOW UP TORPEDO BOAT VESSEL SACRIFICED TO BRING OUT COM MUNICATIONS FROM PORT ARTHUR. Advices From General Stoessel Not Yet Given Out at St. Petersburg—Captain of Destroyer Confirms Re port that Stoessel is Wounded-"Only When the Last Biscuit is Eaten and the Last Cartridge is Fired Will the Garrison Surrender the Fortress," Said the General. Che Foo, Nov. IB.-- 1 The Rus sians have blown up the torpedo boat destroyer Rastoropuy, which 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 ing the afternoon. This last man 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 ropny sank and settled on the bot tom. A single spar markes her grave. It is impossible tonight to secure explanation of the action of the Russians, but it is believed that they determined not to allow a repetition of the Ryeshitelni inci dent. Che Foo, Nov. 16, 8 a. m.—The Russian torpedo boat destroyer Ratstoropny put into this harbor this morning. Firing was heard half an hour before she entered the harbor.

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.

If you are indebted to the Teton Peak we ask you to remit as soon as possible. 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. Sovereign. "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 toward Roosevelt. "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 News : "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 School to the state : According to statements made by T. D. Cahalan and other mem bers of the board, the best state building in Idaho was turned over by contractor Walker last Saturday when the reform school board was given possession of the new state reform school building at St. An thony.

Nourse, of Hailey ; the governor and superin tendent, were not all present at the formal transfer last week, but a majority were on hand to make final inspection of the structure, and accept the keys from contrac tor J. W. Walker. The building is of brick and cut stone and cost $40,000. The finish is very handsome throughout, and the walls are decorated iu delicate shades.
