VH\ IO NT&/T L A BEL REPUBLICAN NATIONAL TICKET. For President, WM. H. TAFT. For Vice-President, JAS. R. SHERMAN. The state convention should have finished its work, and made no excep tion in favor of Lansdon and Hastings ■when cutting heads on the state ticket. The many friends of Miss S. Belle Chamberlain on thist tract will fully accord with the state convention in again endorsing her for the office of superintendent of school and will be prepared to give her a good, big ma jority. From this date The Times Printing and Publishing Company will conduct a strictly union shop. Anything that this paper can legitimately do to ad vance the mutual interests of the firm and the union will be done just so long as right and justice for employer and employe is maintained. The two Interests can, if acting from honest motives, be of untold benefit to each Other in protecting the wages of the printer, and in protecting the em ployer against incompetent labor and low prices. Every day the secretary of the Com mercial club, Mr. Bainbridge, receives letters from some man or firm asking the club to get some concession for it in order that some private business can be installed in this city. One busi ness man put it very aptly this week in discussing the subject, when he said: "Twin Falls is past the experi ment stage and does not need to coax private business enterprises to locate here," It Twin Falla has not proven her right to be called a fixture by its solid business houses and public im provements, then to the man who still has to be shown, a flat refusal should be given him. Twin Falls don't need him. The business men who have al ready located here came without bonus and without any promises whatever and have since coming worked out their own destinies and struggled to ward a better and bigger Twin Falls, even at a personal loss. Why should these pioneer businejs men. through the Commercial club which they have supported, be asked to pave the way and feather the nest for some other man to come in and take the cream of the tract's business? This, of course, does not apply to institutions of pub lic benefit that could not for several years, be self-supporting. When a sugar company, worth several millions asks for a bonus which, in comparison to its capital stock, is a mere drop in the bucket, it looks as though it was only trying to do a little grafting be fore entering a field in which it has already made plans to invade. One of the most important offices in the county is that of county commis sioner, and one that should occupy the attention of the voter during the com ing election. Upon the business ability and integrity of the county commis sioner rests the whole question wheth er the affairs of the county be admin istered economically, or whether ex travagance shall prevail. It is in the power of the commissioner to Insist that the officers do their duty or else suffer for neglect by loss of salary. It is in the power of the commissioner to insist that vouchers be made out by every official before any bill is allowed for expenses. It is the duty of the commissioner to see that every cent of money spent on roads and bridges be used to the utmost extent. They have the power to cut down on over loaded bills and against their decision there is little hope of appeal. In fact, the commissioners stand every mo ment of their term as the guardians of the taxpayer and it behooves the tax payer to see that his guardians are men of known probity and acumen.

Kimberly was visited by a hot fire Sunday morning, which burned to the ground the store of the Kimberly Mer cantile company, the residence of Mr. Breckens, and the rooming house of Syretto and Caveness. The cause of the fire is attributed to the circus train setting fire to a pile of rubbish near the track, and the high wind fanning the flames thus started until the build ings caught fire. The fire evidently be gan in the Mercantile store and was burning fiercely before discovered. The inmates of the rooming house and residence were forced to leave hurriedly and one man, C. HiH. lost everything, even to a sum of money carried in his coat pocket. The post office was situated in the Mercantile building and it was only by strenuous efforts on the part of Harlan Fletcher that the mail was recovered, with the exception of the outgoing sacks. The house of Mr. Beesmeyer, about 100 feet south of the store building, had a very narrow escape and was badly scorched by the intense heat. A tent has been erected as temporary quarters for the postoffice. The Kimberly Me-cantile building was the property of the Norton estate of Rock Creek, and was partially in sured, as were the other buildings and the stocks destroyed.
