From the looks of the opposition to Speaker Cannon he is nearly a spiked At any rate he is of too small gun. calibre to be in the national house. AYith the primary election in force the county convention might as well be a Sunday school convention for all the fun the politicians can get out of it. The regular howl from the Boise Statesman about the poor state ticket might deceive those unacquainted with the sheet's past record in politics. But the aforesaid paper made the same howl against Governor Gooding after his nomination and just as quickly turned around and com menced singing his praises. Some of the finest exhibits of fruit ever seen on the tract are being dis played in the windows of the various real estate offices about town. The dis- j plays only emphasize the need for a fair every year in order that the tract ! may be properly advertised. Falls has the products to make any j prospective settler sit up and take no- | tice and these products should be 1 best advantage j A permanent fair associa- | Twin ! i shown to the very every year tion will sooner or later be organized | and It will have to obtain permanent grounds and buildings. If the county waits two more years before acquiring land about this city it will be so high that the association could net afford to buy. But on the other hand the cit izens of the tract and this city have an excellent offer of forty acres just across the viaduct at $175 per acre which would give ample room for a track and fair grounds. This same land will in two years advance in value so that it will be impossible for a fair association to purchase at $275. The same is true of land in any di rection from the city. It would seem that now is the proper time to get the land even if no buildings could be erected for several years. of The outcome of the county conven tion when it went on record for the primary election, is viewed with sat isfaction by a great many. The Times feels that the action of the convention was only an acquiescence in the wish of the voters of the party and the only way out of a uncomfortable predica ment. The men who attempted to overthrow the primary vote in the con vention were actuated only by the highest motives and reaily believed that their action was for the best in terests of the party. Those men were representative citizens and no man could assail their integrity and honest intentions in trying to mer.d the weak places in the ticket, yet the Times be lieves that after going before the Re publican voters and pledging the party to abide by the primary, there was only one honorable thing to do and that to make the result of the primary the rule of the convention. The Times does not believe that any voter is bound to violate his own good judg ment when it comes to cast the bal lot in November and any undesirable candidate can be quietly disposed of at the polls without jeopardizing the whole ticket. On the other hand had the convention told the people that the primary was just a bait and not in tended to be binding, the people would have come hack at the polls and slash ed the whole ticket along with the men who seemed undesirable. to as GOVERNOR HUGHES IN THE NA TIONAL CAMPAIGN. "One of the best speeches of the j campaign was delivered by Governor a Hughes, of New York, at Youngstown, ! Ohio, September 5. It was the j and with Mr. Hughes appeared Sena | tor Beveridge, be 1 Congressman Burton, Governor Har j ris, of Ohio, and other prominent Re | publicans. The meeting was preced ! opening of the campaign in Ohio, i Secretary Garfield | ed by a demonstration, in which 12, 000 men marched in line, the great a in be majority of them workmen from the neighboring steel mills. The address of Governor Hughes contained an thusiastic declaration of his support of Mr. Taft's candidacy, a recital of the achievements of the Republican party, an indorsement of President Roosevelt and the accomplishments of his administration, end an examina tion of some of the policies advocated by Mr. Bryan. Of Mr. Taft he said: "No one more than I desires to see administration purged of every selfish taint, to have lair and impartial laws faithfully executed, to get rid of every vestige of special privilege at the ex pense of public interest, to liberate trade from unjust encroachments, to purify our electorial methods and to en to is at in maintain honest representative ernment. gov And it is because of his loyalty to these ideals, because of his broad sympathies and his rare equip ment in character, ability, and exper ience, because tested in the difficult fields of judicial and administrative work he has proved his quality by eminent service, because of his varied learning, his acquaintance with af fairs, his respect for constitutional government, and his capacity intelli gently and justly to plan and direct necessary reforms, that I most earn estly support the candidacy of Wil liam Howard Taft." He recounted briefly the history of Republican administration since the defeat of Cleveland Democracy, and paid this tribute to President Roose velt: "For seven years with lofty aim and unconquerable spirit he has la bored for the people, and today, by virtue of his sincere devotion to their welfare, his valiant attack upon evil in high places, his zeal for the com mon interests, whether in the protec tion of the public domain, or in insist ence upon the freedom of inter-state trade, or in the maintenance of high standards of administration, or in the recognition of the rights of labor, or in the care of our national resources, the forceful and representative leader is typified to the popular imagination in the person of Theodore Roosevelt." —Outlook the Fnr Snle.

Personally I believe within ten years we will have the richest and best county in the state. Taking into consideration the fact that our records might be destroyed by fire at any time, the very slight in crease in taxes, and the immense sat isfaction which we would all derive from the possession of a modern coun ty building, I feel confident that a very great majority of the taxpayers of the county will agree with me in the opinion that we cannot afford to delay the matter, and will so express themselves at the polls on October 5th, next. Let us all continue to boost and an additional tax of 2c per acre on our land will be very much more than counterbalanced by the enhanced value of our property. Yours truly, J. M. MAXWELL, Cashier the First National Bank of Twin Falls. by Twin Falls, Sept. 24, 1908. Ed. Times. I thiuk we should build a court house that every citizen will be proud of, and build for the future. The peo ple of a .community are usually esti mated by their public buildings, think we should vote for the bonds. F. D. KIMBALL, Cashier McCornick & Co. of I by or To the Editor of The Times. AVe consider it not only expedient, but a necessity that the county build a court house at this time. The business of the county demands it. There is no disputing the fact that the records are unsafe in their pres ent location, and as a matter of pro tection against loss Vt is a necessity. The good business man would not hes itate in thus protecting himself were it a matter of his own private business, or property, and while this matter perhaps does not concern one individ ual resident of the county more than another, still it concerns us all and each one should see to it that the county records are safe, and thereby protect himself. The cost to each individual will not be noticable. It is our* judgment that no property owner in the county could do anything that would increase the value of his property as much for double the amount that this will cost him, as will the constructruction at this time of a good ccurt house. L. A. AVARNER. Cashier Commercial & Saving Bank. C. to 40 Editor of the Times. One vital point in favor of the court house which has not been touched up on to any extent is the fact that the Twin Falls townsite company has given the county a whole block of the park and that a deed to the property at has a string on it. It will be neces sary for the county to build a substan tial court house within a given time or lose a property easily worth $25, 000 . the taxpayer sit down and soberly con sider the bond proposition. I favor the bond issue. It is a point that should make a L. E. SALLADAY. Editor of the Times. Having been asked to give my opin ion of the court house bond issue I will state that I am heartily in favor of the bonds carrying. The necessity for protection of the records is a real one and to any property owner is only too apparent. A fire would destroy all titles to over three million dollars worth of property and make it impos sible for any business man to give safely a deed to any property so filed. The question of taxes is to my mind a small one, although I am a heavy taxpayer. The increase in taxes which were so terrifying to the taxpayers in this school district, have already been offset by the increase in property val uation of the entire land in this school district, until there is really no in crease in the tax rate. The same would be true for every inch of land on the tract if the courthouse is erected. The small sum necessary to pay interest on the bonds does not compare in the slightest degree with the loss that might be caused through a fire in the present quarters. Twin Falls county has grown beyond the dream of the most sanguine booster, and what two years ago would have seemed prepos terous can now be view as a neces sity. AV. H. ELDRIDGE.
