Hunt, for governor on the Democratic ticket, for purity, for integrity and for hon esty in private life, for fidelity in offic ial life and for bravery and gallant military conduct is the equal of any candidate of any party for that high office since statehood began. He is ab solutely trustworthy and reliable and his political enemies may trust to his pledges and promises with as much confidence as his closest friends. The convention made no mistake when it nominated him for goyernor. When the Democratic convention nominated Captain Hunt it robbed the political mud-slinger of his occupation for this campaign; it removed the poison from his slanderous tongue and it gave to the people a candidate whose verbal promises will be his bond and whose pledges will be sacredly kept in all his official acts. nominee Captain Hunt is not a briliiant speak er of the class of Clay, Webster and Calhoun; he is not a statesman of the rank of Blaine, Harrison and Gorman, neither is he a scheming and designing wily politician, but he belongs to that glass of honorable, upright citizens whom to know Intimately and well is to frust implicitly and to esteem without suspicion or mental Capt. Hunt is a man of the people and for the people, and, if elected governor, will give the state a safe, wise and econom ical administration. reserve. Fbilon in Kansas.

Consistency a Sparkling Jewel. Consistency is a sparkling gem in the casket of jewels. It never changes with the fickle freaks of fortune. It is i popular at ail seasons and at all places of resort. The nautical world places its faith in the needle which unfalteringly points, day and night, in calm, storm or temp est to the one fixed star. The overland tourist directs his course by some pilot knob that rises alxive surrounding peaks and stands above all others as a monumental guide post to point the traveler on his way. Among individuals the firm, fixed, honest man is the true leader. In the campaign for the nomination of a U. S. Senator and a state ticket at Pocatello The News is proud of its consistency in the matter. It varied neither to the right nor to the left. It was true in its course as the needle to the pole. Prominent men who were with it at the beginning of the year, who endorsed its course and encourag ed it, left later on, and it was charged with being ungrateful, untrue and dis honest with friends, when the truth is, The News remained in the same straight course, while they changed their compass and sailed away from it. They brought about the parting of the ways. The News was consistent and the action of the convention said so in the plainest of words. Populists in Ringham County. The News does not speak by thority but it feels warranted in making tlie prediction that the Populists of Bingham county will unite with the Democrats and Silver Republicans in naming a county ticket. They favored a union before the Pocatello tions and a very iarge per cent favor it now. Nothing that transpired at Pocatello will prevent the Democrats from treat-' Ing them with the fairness to which they are entitled, and, in the event of a union, they will be shown every con sideration promised before the union of their state convention at Pocatello. They are with us on general principles and should be with us in the campaign. au conven When the nomination of S tor by the state convention is fairly and honestly carried to Its conclusion in the legislature it will become one of i the fixtures in Idaho politics, nation in convention . semi Norai is the nearest thing obtainable by the people in that matter and the people are the of the situation.

It was oftentimes asserted In the cam-, paign before the Pocatello convention i that no man would want to go to th^ legislature with his hands tied by in structions to vote for a certain candi- | date for United States senator. The News has always had more con- ] fidence in its representative meo tbu that. The upright, honorable man : takes pride in carrying out the wishes ! " 1 of his constituents, it matters not whether it be in electing a U. S. sena tor or getting an appropriation for an institution of learning or Tor building a bridge. If any aspiring man is so sensitive of his rights in this particular let him de cline to be a candidate for the legisla ture. No convention will force the nomination on him, nolens, volens. Any man wanting to serve his constituents acceptably will be glad to comply wtib their instructions and no one will dis pute the right they have to iustruct for U. S. Senator. No man will make it an excuse for not becoming a candidate for the legis lature because the Pocutello conven tion nominated a senator. If he should, and that be ail, it will be well for his party to leave him off the ticket. The First to Nam« lllm. The News has the distinction of being the first paper in the state to name Captain Frank W. Hunt for gov ernor. The action of the convention in nominating him is an endorsement of which it is justly proud. If elected the voters of the state will never regret his election and The News will never be put to blush for naming him. The News was also the first paper in the stale to favor the nomination of U. 8. Senator in the state convention, and as this was done at the Pocatello con vention its course has been doubly en dorsed and it is for those reasons doub ly proud. The nomination of so pure a man as Capt. Hunt will meet with gen eral favor, and the nomination of sena tor will remove so many bickerings, strife and contentions, that, before elec tion, It will be seen that the people will most heartily endorse the action of the convention and all will lie well. i * f * ven ollt l *iat l *ie Republican cam National Chairman Hanna has paign for speech making will begin the 20th of A ugust. „ . , ill force the ex pression: named p strong Honesty in udmission, whether from friend or foe, The Democrats have and clean state ticket.
