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
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.

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'
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

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,
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
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

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
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. While
