DISCOURAGING TO WOMEN AND CHILDREN It must be discouraging to the wo men and children, who sew and save their meager earnings t«t invest in the various war activities, and to the wash erwomen who bend over the suds to earn money to buy bonds, and yet have men like Senator Dubois draw ing $7500 a year tojsit around Idaho hotels and scheme to wring the farmers in to vote a hybrid ticket to elect his favoroite Senator Nugent. He doesn't seem to care for anything or anybody else, and if he is con cerned about any of the others he neglects to say so. In his talk with the writer he puts it this way; ''The president wants Senator Nugent elected." To be frank about it, we don't think the president has any business trying to exercise our franchise for us. We think it is the right of the people of Idaho to decide who shall represent us In the senate. Only a few years ago Sena tor Dubois was traveling over Idaho Yelling people that no man living in another state had any right to reach over into Idaho and try to influence our votes. At that time he was di recting his remarks against a man at Salt Lake City, but the principle of outside domination remains un changed, tho it doesn't suit Dubois to follow it at this time. Any senator that Idaho sends to Washington will back the president in his war measures ,and Mr. Dubois does not deny It. We still think his political activities this year are a stench, and ought to be rebuked by the electorate of Idaho. He is our man and no other state has so good a right or so good a chance to rebuke him as Idaho. RATHER HARD ON THE DEMOCRATS. About the first of June, 1918, an Idaho man wrote to the Nonpartisan headquarters at Boise to ask what the league was planning to do poli tically, whether it would fuse with either of the old parties, or both, and received quite a long letter in reply, explaining about the proposed state convention after the other parties had adopter their platforms, and that it would probably do as it had done in North Dakota and Minn esota—that is, step in and take charge of one of the old parties. "This does not mean fusion," the letter continues, "but simply means taking over the party machinery. If this Is done, the league goes into the general election with 15,000 or 20, 000 additional votes—there are al ways that many in a party that vote the ticket blindly. As a result, the men who receive the nomination in that way can count on getting 15,000 or 20,000 of the blind, ignorant vote in addition to the Nonpartisan vote, and that insures their election." Jhe letter was signed by Miss R. E. Kahl, who has been stenographer in the office of W. G. Scholtz for a long time, and she probably knows the lingo pretty well. It is not very comforting to loyal Democrats wtio want to vote their own ticket, to know that the folks who stole their party, or as they say, "take it over," consider anybody a blind ignoramus who will vote the ticket at all after the theft has been accomplished. Adding Insult to Injury. The attempt of the Nonpartisans to steal the Democratic party is bad enough, and to expect the Dem ocrats to stand by and furnish votes to complete the steal and seal the title is quite as insolent as the meth ods of the Germans in levying tribute on conquered territory; but the Bim * ilarity to the German methods ie still further seen in the fact that if the Nonpartisans give a good admin istration they will themselves claim all credit, while if it is unsatisfac tory, it will all be charged up to the Democratic party under 'wihose ban ner they were elected. One of Hindenberg's maxims for disposing of an enemy is, "Br§ak bis power of resistence and then enslave him." Our boys are standing shoul der to shoulder in Europe, Repub licans and Democrats alike, trying to crush autocracy, and the Democrats and Republicans at-home should not hesitate to stand 'together to finish the job here. Strange isn't it, that the organizers should go out and en list the farmers by telling them it was not a political body, and then come .along with this grand larceny damned if you do and damned if .you don't program! ♦ BELATED EDUCATION FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD The Blackfoot school board are getting educated. They are taking their education now from a source they are not likely to over-rule or dis pute. For about ten years the editor of the Idaho Republican has been making an appeal to them periodi cally to comply with the spirit as well as the letter of the law in mak ing publication of financial state ments. The law requires that they shall publish the financial statement annually in such detail that it will show all sources of revenue and ex penditures. It may be that no one personally would know whether it was correct or not, but the public taken collectively would know if any (Continued on page six.) OFFICE OF The Republican central Committee Regarding William A. Lee for the Senate The last session of the Idaho legislature, by the enactment of senate bill No. 130 provided for a re vision and codification of all the statue law of the state by a code commission, to act under the supervision of the supreme court. This revision and codification, will be presented to the next session of the legisla ture, for final consideration and adoption as a new aiid revised code of all the laws in force within the state. Manifestly this pro posed new code should have thoro consideration before its adoption, and if such consideration is to be had within the sixty days limit of a single session of the legislature it is per fectly clear that there must be members, whose profes sional training and experience qualify them for this class of work. William A. Lee, the Re publican candidate for the senate from the Fifth Sena torial district, comprising Bingham county ,has had this training and experience, which qualifies him for this work in an exceptional way. He was a resident of Utah when that state adopted its constitution and the gover nor, pursuant to a legislative act of the first session ap pointed R. W., now Brigadier General Young, Grant H. Smith and Mr. Lee as a com mission to revise, and codify all of the state's laws, and make them harmonize with the new constitution. This commission gave nearly two years' time to this work and prepared what was adopted as Senate Bill No. 11, and is known as the Revised Statutes of 1898, and ever since has bieen regarded as a model revision. Following this experience Mr. Lee was appointed as sistant attorney general for that state and served nearly four years in that capacity. As such officer he was the legal adviser of all state and county officers ,and his duties required him to have a gen REPUBLICAN CENTRAL COMMITTEE F. M. FISHER, J. H. ANDERSEN. Chairman. Secretary. advertisment 'V \ * % A mt :i (■ Jtf JOHN H. PADGHAM To the people of the Sixth Judi cial District. This is to inform you that I am one of the two candidates whose names were on the primary ballot, and will be on the election ballot, for your consideration in choosing a district judge. I have caused my picture to be printed here, with my message, because that is the nearest I can come to making a personal visit to each of you. You, of course, will understand that it would take up too much of i .* eral knowledge and to co sider all the laws of the state, and to determine their correct interpretation, often in ad vance of the decisions of the courts. Some questions were of such importance that they were taken to the Unted States Supreme court for final determination, and in every instance his opinions were sus tained by the courts. He has had extensive ex perience with questions per taining to irrigation, water rights and the Carey act, hav ing been the general attorney for the American Falls Canal & Power Co., which under his guidance secured the first segregation in this state un der that act, and he subse quently organized the present holding company, the Aber deen-Springifield company, this enterprise having added greatly to the county's wealth and population. Mr. Lee's Americanism and loyalty are beyond ques tion. His ancestors came to this country and settled in Virginia prior to the Revolu tionary war, and some of them have served as volun teer soldiers in every war since, his farther being killed in battle during the civil war. His only surviving son, Lieu tenant Commander Robert C. Lee af the early age of thirty, is now in command of a U. S. destroyer, fighting German my time to visit all the homes,' and it would take up some of your valu able time to receive me when I called, perhaps in a busy time for you. We can both expend our ''man power" to better effect at our work, so 1 employ the press of your com munity to say to you that I am a candidate for this important position, and that I earnestly solicit your con sideration in making a choice of where you will bestow your vote. I am a native of the state of New York, was admitted to the bar in Michigan in 1879, came to Salmon City, Idaho in 1898 and have prac ticed law and held judicial, positions by turn for these thirty-nine years. I am well informed in all branches of law, and litigation usual to this district. I enjoy the respect and con fidence of the people of Lemhi county, have always been counted among those Who stood for what is best and highest in citizenship, and when I occupy a judicial position I expect to honor the office by con ducting its ,proceedings with dignity and decorum, seeking to have a dis passionate interpretation and appli cation of the law. I ask that you accept this printed message in place of a personal meet ing, and allow me to say that the picture is not sent on any assump tion that you cared for it, but since each life is depicted in the features, and you wish to be your own judge of the character of man you place at the head of the courts of your dis trict, the camera was employed last ■week to picture me correctly in your paper today, adv. j JOHN H. PADGHAM. ♦ Fred Weston of Pocatello, spent the latter part of the week here at tending to some business matters. sub-marines, and convoying our troop ships in European waters. Mr. Lee was born in Nebraska, and raised on a farm, where he remained un til he was j grown, when he took a collegiate course at a nearby denominational school later completing his profes sioal course at Washington University, St. Louis. His training and experience have since been wide and varied, in all the courts ,including the United States Supreme Court. He is a member of the American Bar association, one of the most influential organizations of professional men, and .one upon which the government has relied' for counsel and advice, regarding many of the intricate legal problems which this present war has given rise to. Mr. Lee has been a resi dent and a property owner in this state for many years, and been interested in and assisted in the development of some of its larger enterprises. All of his property aside from his library and personal effects, consist of farm lands, which he is engaged in improving and farming. His family, at present consists of himself and wife, Mrs. Libyan S. Lee and they have resided since leaving their farm lands, in Blackfoot He has been a life long Republican and the Republi can party presenf his name to the voters of this county, for the important office of state senator, at this time, when men of character ability, experience, and unquestion able loyalty are demanded, sincerely believing' that he in an exceptional degree has all of those qualifications, and pledging the people that if he is elected, his best efforts will be given to secure wise and just laws for all interests. We are unalterably opposed to any party or candidate, that seeks preferment by promising class legislation for any particular class as being un-American, and contrary to the spirit and intent of our government.
