WILBUR S. HILL Editor and Publisher INDEPENDENT REPUBLICAN Entered as second class matter May 5, 1905, at the postofflee at Twin Falls, Idaho, under the act of Congress of March 3, 1879. Subscription Rates: 12.00 One year, in advance.

The move should receive the ap proval of every person who takes delight in a cleau aud san itary street. Considerable complaint has been made by the farmers since the hitching posts were removed last Saturday that they have no place where they can tie their teams while shopping. Their complaint is natural, because right at present no steps have been taken to put in hitching racks in the vacant lots to ac comodate them. But the Times feels certain that the business men wjll shortly provide some substantial hitching racks in the vacant spots back of the stores, and this paper is willing to con tribute its share toward the hitching racks. Next week the New Y< Legislature will meet in extra session to consider, primarily, the bills aiming to abolish r track gambling. These bills, Jkt the regular session, passed the Assembly by an almost unai mous vote, but were defeated in tbe Senate on a vote of 25 to 35. ork :e . What is Hie issue presented by tbesQ measures y Iu 1895 an amendment to the State Consti tution was adopted which reads as follows; "Nor shall any lottery or the sale of lottery tickets, pool-sell ing, book-making, or any other kind of gambling hereafter be authorized or allowed within this state; and the Legislature shall pass appropriate laws to prevent offenses against any of the provisions of this section. "— Outlook. James H. Brady chairman of the republican state central com mittee. and candidate for gover nor, states he is now and always has been in favor of a direct pri mary law, and says he sincerely hopes the republican party in the coming campaign will have a specific plank in the platform favoring the passage of such a law. That plank was in the platform of the republican party two years ago, and when it came up for passage by the legisla Mr. Brady used his in ture. fluence to have the bill defeated Brady loves the primary law as weli as the devil loves holy water because he well knows that if the matter of his nomination was left to a direct vote of the people, and not to a packed convention, he would not get within a thousand miles of it.— Weiser American. The sudden rise of Japan seems as if might cost her all the slights and sufferings which sometimes fall to the lot of the parvenu and the nouveau riche She has learned all the lessons of her latter civilization from, . _ I Europe and America, and, ac 1 cordinsr to the Japanese proverb 0 . . "the pupil should not come with r , in four paces of his master s , r . J shadow. Yet a writer in thelpect f Hambursrer Isachrichten reY: ® . // marks that Japan not onil/ 'U , - , *f WOnld euvade the area of tnajl shadow, but. would take th* master's place. This writer says many nice things about Japan. The world sympathized with her in her war with China for the independence of Korea, becaused she seemed to be the smaller and weaker of the two. When she fought with Russia the powers looked on with bated breath, and loud expressions of admiration echoed around the globe. Her intellectual pro gress has been most creditable to her, but she is at present, we are told, suffering from undue elation, from "swelled head," in fact, and the nations are growing tired of what the writer inter prets as her greed and her ar rogance. Why, he asks, is she increasing her land and sea forces, although her treasury is on the verge of bankruptcy?''— Literary Digest. Bids Wanted.
