Real Democratic Harmony in State Idaho sends greeting to the great com moner of Fairview and confidently pledge him that, purged of false lead ers who would divide and destroy it, again united, harmonious and milit ant we will for the third time bear his banner to victory. Fourth—We yield to no man or par ty in the patriotic enforcement ©f the constitution and laws of our state and we denounce in unmeasured terms those who, with express contempt for our courts and with no effort to en force the law, have maligned and vil lified the good name of the state of Idaho and have held her people, than whom there are none more sober and virtuous, up to the scorn of the world. Direct Primary. Fifth—Firmly believing that the first concern of the state should al ways be to maintain a government by the people, therefore as a means of bringing the people nearer to the administration of the government, we favor the enactment of a direct pri mary election. We further favrr an amendment to the constitution of the United States so as to secure the elec tion of the United States senators by direct vote of the people. Forest Reserves. Sixth—While we believe in the pre servation of the national forests, we are unalterablly opposed to the inclus ion within national forest reverves of land which is capable of being trans formed into homes for the people. We denounce the policy of national land lordism as exemplified in the pres ent national forest reserve policy. Such a bureaucratic policy is unjust to the citizen and tax payer of the state, an impassable barrier to set tlement, progress and development of the resources of the state and thor oughly un-American and un-Demo cratic. a Railroad Commission. Seventh—We favor the enactment of a law by our next state legislature providing for the creation of a state railroad and warehouse commission and the enactment of an adequate law prohibiting and preventing the dis crimination by any raidroad or trans portation company against any person or corporation in the granting of warehouse facilities. Employers Liability Law. Eighth—-We believe that the laws of the state now in force are inadequate to protect those seeking redress from employers of labor for injuries or death sustained by employes and pledge our legislative candidates to support measures which will enable such injures to be adequate and am ply redressed. a Safety in Wines. Ninth—The state has no higher function to preform than to adequate ly protect the lives, persons and prop erty of its citizens. So believing, we favor a more efficient law requiring the owners of miners to adopt safe and sanitary means in the prosecution of such to the end that danger to the lives, persons and health of those en gaged therein may be reduced to a minimum. We further favor the re vision of the state into such miidng districts as may be necessary for the convenient and efficient administra tion of such laws. Conflict Over Lands. Twelfth—Recognizing the conflict of interests between certain settlers and the state of Idaho over homestead lands in w hich th* state has acquired preference right through Ino public land department of -he government, we recommend in view of the alleg*-' long residence and substantial and valuable improvements of many of the aforesaid settlers, that the state land board before securing a cancellation of said settler that the state land board before securing, a cancellation of said settler home stead entries and issuance of patents to the state for said land, that they inaugurate a thor ough investigation of the bona tides of the alleged settlement and improve ment of said land by said settlers, and their moral and equitable right to title thereto and that in the event of thè establishing of such right by any ef said settlers, that the state of Idaho should waive any superior legal right or claim to said land. Protection to AH. Fourteenth—Believing that the effi ciency of government departments de pends not so much on the volume of its laws as upon the strictness and Im partiality of their enforcement, we would limit new legisltion to such enactments only as may be adequate to the functions of a just and orderly government, granting equal rights and équal protection to all and special privileges to none.—Statesman. to Wool Production In Germany.
