Fisher and his at torney appeared for the preliminary examination before Probate Judge Good Friday the defense asked for sixty days' time In which to examine the aduitors' report and check up on the charges against him, the parti cular charge named in the complaint being that Fisher had on or about the first of January, 1918, and at vari ous other times, failed and refused to make payment on warrants when presented for payment, when there was money In his custody sufficient to pay them. The prosecution claimed that it would not take them sixty days to determine whether this had been done or not, and they were given until the twelfth of November. Dis trict court convenes on the twenty fifth of November. DISLOYALIST HERE Horace Mann, the Non-partisan league organizer, who was in jail at Gooding, but released on ball, pend ing trial in the United States court, was In Blackfoot Monday evening on his way to Idaho Falls. While In Blackfoot he called at the home of Alex. Younle and.made himself known, saying he remem bered the Younles in Kossuth county, Iowa, where he was raised, here of the Younle family remem bered him rather dimly as a young fellow who was not considered very well balanced and a little queer. Mr. Younle said he Beemed like a bright, intelligent man now. When asked if he was the same man who had the trouble at Gooding, he acknowledged that he was. Mem WILL S. J. DONALDSON ANSWER? Two weeks ago we stated that S. J. Donaldson, & man whose word we thought was good .assured the edi tor of the Republican, that Arthur LeSeuer is not an officer in the Non partisan league and has nothing to do with it. Mr. Donaldson made that statement the twelfth of October, the day he bought a newspaper for the league in Blackfoot, and in the face of all tHe evidence that LeSeuer is executive secretary of the league and one of the highest officers in the league next to Townley, we call upon Mr. Donaldson to explain why he made such a statement. The Misses Eula Palmer and Doris Dunn spent the week-end with their folks in the country. ALL PARTIES ARE LOYAL Democratic Leaders' Claim of in <Jent > th *t Democratic members of Congress are thinking when they urge th.e election of a Democratic Congress upon the ground it is necessary in der to support the President in his of be 1 of as a P art y on national sacrifices, From the very beginning the Repub licans in Congress have unhesitatingly , voted money, men end other resources be and power without limit whenever the 1 , ' ___ i Be T eral occasions when war measures asked by President Wilson were be Monopoly on Patriotism Insult to Millions. It Is of themselves, not of the Presl or war program. It Is partisanship and not patriotism that they are preaching. It is a base effort to make party capital out of a national crisis and "cash In" Administration asked It as a war measure. The record shows that upon bitterly fought by Democratic leaders the Republican leaders came of i to the rescue of the President and ' gave him what he wanted, | Republicans have resigned their ■eats In Congress to enter Into active military service In support of the wat. Republicans everywhere have sent hundreds of thousand^ of their own flesh and blood to give armed support to the President and the government Republicans have led the fight for pre paredness. They have stood by the war to the utmost They are commit ted against any peace that Is not dic tated by victory. Their record as par ty in Congress and aa individuals out side of Congress proves their 100 per, cent Americanism. In asking control of the next Con gress, Republicans are merely asking permission and opportunity to pull half the load; to share In the patriotic responsibility of handling the affairs of their nation during a crisis. To meet this crisis they have responded withont question, without stint and without thought of partisanship, to ev ery demand and every request of the Administration. To Intimate that the election of a Re publican congress would not be stand ing by the President and the govern ment is to accuse every'Republican of disloyalty. To brand the Republican request for participation in govern mental affairs as being a menace to the nation and the President and a re quest which the voters .should reject is an Insult to every Republican home which has a service flag and to thou sands of Republican communities which have oversubscribed Liberty loans and given a heaped-up, running over measure of loyal support to every request of the government and the President The claim of Democratic leaders that they have a monopoly of loyalty and those not of their political belief are not good Americans and should not be trusted In official positions will receive Its just rebuke on November 5. V NO "DICKERED 11 PEACE u Germany Must Surrender," Say Republican Leaders in Treaty * Making Senate, Early in August, Senator Lodge, ranking Republican member of the Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs and Republican leader In the Senate, sounded an earnest wqynlng against any premature or compromising peace with Germany. He demanded a peace dictated only by victorious American and Allied armies, a peace Involving Germany's unconditional 'surrender. His address aroused, the greatest en thusiasm In all the Allied countries, where it was reproduced In the public press. When the recent Teutonic overtures for peace were made, Republican lead ers in the Senate, which is the treaty making body of this government, Im mediately went on record against any armistice or "dickering" with Ger many and her allies. Senator McCum ber, Republican, of North Dakota, In troduced a resolution committing the United States against any cessation of hostilities or peace negotiations with Germany until the Hun surrendered unconditionally and agreed to make reparation to .the nations he had ravaged. phis resolution was endorsed by the Republican leaders In the Senate, who Insisted there must be no let-up in the prosecution of the war abroad or its support at home until Germany and her allies lay down their arras and say, "We are defeated. What terms of peace and reparation do yon im pose?" It la absurd to attempt to make It appear that If Senators Lodge, Mc Cumber, Poindexter, Nelson and their Republican colleagues carry the No vember elections and Mn control of the next Senate such an event would be hailed with joy in Berlin and Mth dread by our Alltea During the Spanish-American war, when McKinley was President, all but six Democrats of the House opposed the war revenue measure which Issued $000,000,000 bonds with which to finance the war; all but seven Demo crats of the Senate opposed the meas ure. Contrast that attitude with the fact that the Republicans of this Con gress have voted, without division, in support of every war loan resolution asked by President Wilson. There Is no Mason and Dixon Una in the hearts of the American people, but the Democratic leaders in Con gress have drawn one In public legisla tion and they insist upon patrolling It X.

A Warm Democratic Letter The New Freedom, Idaho' state Democratic weekly, proclaims the bat tle cry of the loyal Democrats of Idaho, "That when Fraud Controls Nom inations, to Revole is Party Loyalty." This is the slogan of Idaho Democracy and has been proclaimed in words of burning fire by loyal Democrats in answer to the request of the National Congressional committee that clubs be organized for the election of Purcell and Jepperson ,the Non-partisans, who have Btolen the Livery of Democracy to serve the Devil of Socialism in. Here is a copy of a sample of the replies, .being a letter from Hon. Frank Harris, the /Old warhorse of Democracy of Washington county. Read every word of it: Hon. Scott Ferris, Washington, D. C. Dear Sir: *> I have your surprising request of the twenty-fifth of last month, by which *, ar " requested to assistrin the organization of a "Purcell for Congress cuib. To me this is an astounding proposition. I know Purcell. He nves here in Weiser, where he has been running a Republican newspaper for the last eight years, and at the last two elections was a defeated Republi can candidate for state senator. He was up to two weeks prior to his nomination as a Democratic candidate a member of the Republican plat form committee, and helped write the platform the Republican candidates of this state stand on in this election. certalnl y a flne specimen to ask an old line Democrat who has stood that he saw a chance to get into office by following that Socialist, Townley, and securing a nomination thru fraud, he for the time quit his old alliance and is nOw styling himself a "Wilson Democrat." | He is certainly a fine specimen to ask an old Democrat who has stood by the party thru all the years of adversity and defeat, to support. No, you have another guess coming. The first one you missed a mile when you guessed that I or any other loyal friend of the president and our great party would be instrumental in electing a man to congress whose nomina tion was secured thru fraud. THIS MAN PURCELL IS A FOLLOWER OF TOWNLEY, WHO IS NO BETTER FRIEND TO OUR GREAT GOVERNMENT THAN IS LENINE OR TROTZKY TO POOR DISTRACTED RUSSIA. TOWNLEY IS A SOCIAL* 1ST, A SUPPORTER OF THE PRINCIPLES EXPRESSED IN THE LAST* PLATFORM OF HIS PARTY, WHICH AS YOU KNOW, IS TREASON, PURE AND SIMPLE. ARTHUR LE SEUER, AN ASSOCIATE AND FRIEND OF DEBS AND HAYWOOD, IS THE SECRETARY OF THE NON-PATISAN THB LEADERS IN THAT UNPATRIOTIC ORGANIZA TION WERE NOT AGAINST THIS GOVERNMENT AND HEART AND S° GL .

S T S, Y ND W0ULD N0T ASS0CIATB with THIS ARCHTRAITOR FOR A i**? j^ a h° for nearly forty years and know the history of Haywood and his bloody gang. I knew the late Governor Steunenberg, whom Haywood s organization murdered) and knolw that there was a miscarriage of Justice when this demon was not hanged for the crime when he tried here a few years ago. Now comes the pitable spectacle, here in Idaho, where the blood of Governor Steunenberg was spilled, of an organization created and offered by the friends and apologists of his murderers, stealing the machinery of the pary of our great president, setting up candidates, not Democrats, and asking the support of decent people. These are the facts and damned be the man or men who will dispute them. 11 am uow growing old, and as the years creep on I become the more solicitous for our country's good ,and cast my vote accordingly, hence reason for declining your astounding proposition.

Hamilton, of this place, late chairman of the state Demo cratic central committee, informs me that he got a letter of the same im port as that I am now answering, and informs me that his answer thereto will not encourage you much in the organization of "Purcell for Congress club, and I can assure you that he speaks the sentiments of thousands of loyal Democratic, who intend to work and vote for Gooding, Republican and Moore, Democrat, for senators, and French for representative. . 1 have two boys over In France, of whom I am intensely proud.
