OCTOBER 29, 1908. VOL. IV, NO. 32 SUBSCRIPTION $2.00 PER YEAR A MR IN THE WOODPILE Local Option by Democracy Merely a Blind STRAIGHT TIP FROM THE LIQUOR INTERESTS. 0. H. Barber, Former Editor of the J 4 Times; Exposes Letter from the Brewers, and Draws His Own Con clusions. J The following article is part of an address, made by O. H. Barber, former ly editor of this paper, in a speech - made at Malad. Mr. Barber has since his removal to American Falls been a strong supporter of the temperance movement, and his many friends here will be pretty sure to read his opinion, which preceeds the letter from Earl Saunder. The letter was read by Mr. Barber during his address: "Here is another point: The Demo cratic state platform promises temper ance people nothing. The local legis lative candidate is free to promise anything, and if he violates his prom ise the party can not be held responsi ble. Two years hence such a candi date will not me the nominee and can not be personally disciplined, saler to hold a party responsible than au individual, because there is a way of v isiting judgment upon u party that does not exist in the case of an indiv idual member of a party who betrays his trust. "The following letter not only shows that the liquor dealers are organized, but establishes the connection of Earl Sanders with the organization, and the further fact that it is the local option plnnk of the Republican party's plat form that they fear. The writer has received a number of letters which es tablish the fact that Earl Sanders, sec retary of the Brewers' association, and 'Junius,' the Democratic newspa per correspondent, are one and same person. This establishes a per fect chain of evidence from the brew ers to the Democratic party, and through the Democratic party to the temperance people who will be solicit ed to vote for Democratic nominees who make certain pledges." Sanders' letter to the liquor leaders is as follows: It is à the Boise, Idaho, Sept. 11, 1908. Dear Sir: You have no doubt followed the lo cal option wave which now threatens the western part of the United States, and have noticed that the Republican party, at its recent convention in Boise, adopted a plank for local op tion by counties, which in Idaho is the quickest and surest way to get local option. We trust that you realize the danger to our interests. The brewers of the state have already organized, and an organization of the wholesale and retail liquor dealers will at once be commenced. We solicit your hearty co-operation and support. The writer is sufficiently in touch with the conditions in Idaho to know j . that a local option bill can be defeated ' 4 providing we all get together and work in harmony. We must organize, we must conduct a campaign of educa tion, we must see that our interests are properly looked after and our case properly presented to the legislature. To do thi? funds must be raised to pay the necessary and legitimate expenses. You will be called upon and trust that you will do all in your power to aid us in the work.

They button up close to the neck with a doubl e, well fitting collar, and have the length to protect from wind and cold. A Plenty of style and snap. Some are made of plain fabrics and others are handsome patterns in plaids and stripes. Good overcoats for any purpose : : : : : EvLDRIDGES f ) V,' publicans during their state conven tion that the reason they put the local option plank in their platform was not because they personally favored it but because the friends of local op tion were organized, and our interests were not organized. This state of af fairs is ruinous to our cause and should be remedied at once. The brew ers of the state of Oregon, state that ten thousand dollars expended at the proper time for the purpose of pre senting their side to the people would have stopped the local option agita tion, while now it will require the expenditure of not less than half a million dollars to relieve the state of that incubus. Let us not follow the example of Oregon, rather let us pool our interests and pull together. A state organization will at once be formed and men put In the field to organize the entire state. You will be notified in due course. Very truly yours, Idaho Sate Brewers' Association. (Signed) EARL SANDERS, Sec'y. FOR STATE CHAMPIONSHIP. Basket Ball Team Will Wrestle With Pocatello Academy.

They are all fine singers, and their voices blend in splendid harmony. They are high-class, college people; they do not condescend to the trashy music so often given by jubilee com panies .but are making a record for the best in their line. The company has been very much appreciated here, growing in popularity with each ap pearance till the climax last night, when they took the audience by storm. Many were the requests received for their continuation longer with us. They are without doubt the best jubi lee company that ever visited Bed ford, and we have had some good ones before.
