TO THE PEOPLE OF BINGHAM COUNTY 1 take this opportunity to thank you for the honors here tofore bestowed upon me, and the loyal support you have always given me, and to solicit your votes again at the coming election. It has been impossible for me to personally visit many people because of the unusual conditions which prevail this year, and because my time has been fully occupied with my official duties. I desire to state that during the time I have been county _attorney I have, to the best of my ability, earnestly and conscientiously endeavored to faithfully perform all the duties of the of fice with strict impartiality and all possible vigilence. A prosecuting at torney necessarily makes some enemies, and I know I have done so. How ever, I have nothing to apologize for In a single instance, and I invite in spection of my record, involving, as it does, the prosecution of several hun dred criminal cases. I am a Republican, and have no other endorsements except my record. I am not the candidate of any other party or league, and if elected, will be under no obligations to any organization or special class or any one except the public generally. " I have lived in Blackfoot for over ten years, and have a wide acquain tance thruout the county ,and It is easy to investigate by character and record. I believe that the county should adopt business principles In select ing its officers and managing its affairs. A corporation such as a bank, railroad or sugar factory retains in its service an employee who is ex perienced if he gives good service, and such organizations do not discharge a man otherwise qualified and experienced simply because he has worked for them three or four years. On the contrary*such enterprises always endeavor to keep their faithful employees because they are better qualified by experience to render efficient services. At the present time, Bingham county has some very important civil and criminal cases pending in the Supreme Court, and also many pending suits in the District Court with which I alone am familiar. Some very im portant litigation involving large sums of money has just been started on behalf of the county, and ordinarily it is unwise to change attorneys dur ing the course of litigation. If re-elected, I assure you a continuation of the same earnest, scientious endeavor to do my full duty, aided by four years' valuable perience in the office. If, after investigation, my record warrants it, I will sincerely appreciate your vote and the votes of your friends at the coming election. adv. con ex Respectfully, * '"TOlLPH W. ADAIR.

He states they were quite uneasy about their two daughters as they .were both ill with Spanish influenza. Adeline is in Provo, where she has been attending school and Hazel, the nurse, is sta tioned at Fort Riley, Kansas. She wrote that there were 1000 case In the hospital, so many they could not be given proper care. One train leaving there carried 60 dead sol diers and 6 nurses. Ancil Rupe took Will Parsons to Idaho Flails Monday in response to a message stating the serious illness of a son of Mr. Parsons'. " THAT THE iEOPLE MAY KNOW Continued from page three erg (a falsehood on its face) and that the other 15 per cent controled the state and nation. He m ould tell the farmer that the state legislature was rotten, dominated wholly by the big interests; that the merchant robbed him; that the miller short-weighed his grain and stole his substance; that the banks grew fat and Hch by reason of the exortiitaiYt rates of in terest the farmer paid him; that the tax-gatherer laid a heavy hand upon him; that sugar factories robbed him shamefully and made millions out of his sweat and toil; in short, that the hand of every, other man was against him, and that his sole re maining hope depended upon his joining this Non-partisan league, which would in a short time gain control of the government of state and nation. C. R. Jeppesen, who was the so licitor and organizer for this section last summer, carried with him a copy of President Wilson's book "The New Freedom." This_book he opened oc casionally telling the farmer ( as he told me) that President Wilson was back of the league, that he was 1 in fact a Non-partisan. He never read from President Wilson's "New Freedom" for the simple reason that there is not a sentence in it that har monizes, either in thought or spirit, with Townleyism. Of the $16.00 that the farmer pays, the solicitor pockets $4.00 as his commission. In case he succeeds in catching ten farmers a day, (not an un-common thing in pro-German or Socialistic communities) his com mission nets him $40.00, $1200 every thirty days—a tidy sum for a farmer who never takes his coat off. Townley said in Idaho Falls that he paid for the Fords driven by these solicitors and organizers. In other words, the farmer pays the solicitor' transportation. Mr. Jeppesen in company with one Dow Dunning, passed thru Shelley yesterday south bound. They have been in the northern Snake river val ley spreading this selfish and vicious propaganda. Politics is, or should be, adjourned for the period of the war. At this time, when American manhood is fighting the battles of freedom and democracy on a foreign soil; when our soldiers abroad are asking us to hold high the torch of human liberty; when women and children are tolling in the fields and factories, that the world may be fed; at this time, C. R. Jeppesen, Non partisan candidate for congress, is going about the country preaching this diabolical Non-partisan conspi racy and actually telling people that he, Jeppesen must be elected be cause it is the desire of President Wilson. Is any one dense enough to believe that President Wilson wants these Non-partisans in congress? Does not the doctrine that they preach mark them as followers of pollticial heresies within which are the seeds of class bitterness, anarchy and disaster? President Wilson wants no such men in the congress of the United States. The Democratic voter should bear in mind that these men—Samuels, Jeppesen, and others are not Demo crats. They do not claim to be Democrats. In principle they have nothing in common with Democrats. Light and darkness are not farther sundered than are the high-born principles of Democracy and the selfish bastard-born principles of Next Winter You Will Still Proud of It! 4[ \ Be I A \ \ \\ In these times, we're all thinking pretty seriously about the wearing quality of our purchases.

I have before me a card upon which is a photograph of Mr. Sam i»els. Below the picture are the words, "H. F. Samuels, candidate for governor of Idaho," November 5, 1918. Evidently, Samuels is either afraid or ashamed to state on this card the party to which he belongs. He does not even style himself farmer candidate or Townleyite can didate. On the back of this card is the following message: "Dear Neigh bor: I am for our one country, one flag, one purpose. To win the war. Let us have true democracy at home as well as abroad. To do this Idaho must be freed from special privileges, ege." To win the war is a catch phrase at present. Samuels feels safe in using it. He does not explain what he means by, true democracy, but leaves the "Dear neighbors" to infer that he fneans Townleyism. Idaho must be freed from speical privileges. By Whom? By the farmers, if Samuels is a disciple of Townley. Not by the farmers in friendly and brotherly co-operation with mer chants, artisans, wage earners, build ers, capitalists, lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc., must the state be freed from the domination of big biz; but by Townleyites arrayed in hatred against all other classes. What a selfish, mean, contemptible doctrine this is. Samuels is "for our one country, one flag, one purpose." Just what he means by these expressions no one knows. It may be inferred, how ever, that he means a Townley country, a Townley flag, a Townley purpose. Mr. Samuels, your message does not have the true Democratic ring. Genuine Democrats with the Wil sonian spirit cannot vote for you. The Nampa Record has published a biography of Samuels under the caption "Samuels the Builder." This biography does not say a word about Samuels' political principles or ber liefs. It may be that the Record thinks that "politics is adjourned; -but at the same time, the Non-par tisan whisperers are still in the field land the silly "We'D Stick," 1 pennants are being flaunted. When a person sees one of these, "We'll* Stick" plasterers on an automobile, he is always curious to see the shape of the owner's head arid t he expression of the "Dear Neighbor's" face. Now "Dear Neighbors," don't you see how silly, stupid, and unpro gressive this "We'll Stick" slogan makes you appear. You joined this Non-partisan league eight, ten, twelve months ago. Since that time the man iwho originated this slogan has perhaps been sent to the peniten tiary for disloyalty to his gov ernment. Townley is „now un der indictment. The solicitor to whom you took the oath is under arrest for espionage. Carl H. Davis and R. W. Bignell, both Non-partisan oragnizers, are now under arrest on a charge of vio lating the federal espionage law in Idaho. Moreover, and of more im portance than the above, is the fact that you have read, studied, observed and done some thinking, since this "We'll Stick" idea was presented to you. You have discussed the matter with the good wife and got the bene fit of her intutive judgment. Your son has returned from college and with him you have a heart to heart talk. You have a new Intellectual *» c prospective and you cannot honestly stick by your ideas and ideals of a year ago. Besides, twelve months ago, the issues were not denied and you did not knqw who the candidates for of fice were to be or what political prin ciples these candidates would em body. You find if you are an honest man and a good American that you must change your slogan and say: We'll stick for the truth. We'll stick for honest, capable, ef ficient men for office regardless of political partisanship or political ex pediency. We'll stick for loyal, patriotic ser vice in city, state and nation. We'll stick for a government that will in the end mete out justice to all the people of state and nation. We'll stick for civic righteousness. We'll stick for fraternity and brotherhood; and above and beyond state and nation, iwe'll stick for hu manity, and hold out the right hand of good-fellowship to all men. Men and women of Idaho, if you stick for any or all of the above things you must tear from your auto mobiles and remove from your homes the narrow, stupid, Non-jartisan "We'll Stick" pennant, and trample it in the dirt under your feet. Another word about Mr. Samuels. He has his photograph on a poster upon which we read the following message: "A vote for Samuels is an endorsement of President Wilson. Win the war." * Samuels must know that this statement is, a deliberate falshood, the more despicable because Its pur pose is to deceive the unthinking. The Non-partisan league principles are the same everywhere.
