The News has Dot been chasing a rain boa for its figures for the Idaho campaign. It holds itself to a higher responsibility for its estimates and Its claims. Unies* we have been imposed upon by exaggerated managerial claims the state is safe for Bryan and the ent'ia Democratic ticket. We feel that we cannot be mistaken. We hare no in clination to mislead our readers. The Bryan electors are safe in Idaho and Capt. Hunt will be the next governor. These are the conditions at the close of this week. But the good work should go on to the close of the day of the ftth of November. No one should cease to work or stay at home because the vic tory it won. The closing week may be given in the interest of the county tickets. Illinois Democratic. A careful estimate of the vote of Illi nois gives the state to Bryan by 10,000 to 20,000. Alachuler, the Democratic candidate for governor, is very popular with the Germans and is meeting with wonderful encouragement in hia cam paign. The conservative estimates as made gives the city of Chicago and Cook county to the Democrats by 40,000, and the rest of the state to the Republicans by 25,000. Th>s will give the Demo crats the handsome majority of 15.000 in the state. Mr. Bryan is going into the state and the campaign managers are joyous at the good reports they baye in store for him. The Permit System in Canrt. James C. Duffy, n Montana miner, has begun court preceding* against Governor Steuoenberg and Auditor Sinclair for 92,500 damages alleged to have been sustained through the work ings of the permit system in force in the Coeur d' Alenes, and which pre vented him from securing work for the support of himself and family. The case ia brought not so mach for damages but to test the constitution ality of the system which the plaintiff alleges has deprived him of his rights as an American citixen. The case in question will probably be taken to the Supreme court of the United states. ed a I BUII Fighting. Captain George Steunenberg writing to the Caldwell Record from Manila says in his letter published this week: "There is still fighting in tbe Pblli plnes. Tbe eyes of the public have been shifted to Sooth Africa and China but the army here has its troubles. Old Idaho men agree that there is more danger now than last year. The style of fighting has changed, hero stock is on tbe decline and the old-time glory has departed. The same men who charged the trenches with a cheer last year art not «nearly so anxious to go charging along a slippery mountain trail where a hidden Filipino is sending h'a home made bullets whirling through the air like cook stoves. The Filipino has learned to shoot low and save his ammunition. Tbe war may be over but tbe end is not yet. Tbe enemy lurks in the mountains and bis numbers and strongholds are unknown to tbe Amer icans." Debater Davis is UeaSdent. Trenton, Mo. T>avls declares confidently that Bryan will be elected. He was on the train that carried tbe Dockery party out of Kansas City Sunday night. "I am fully convinced now," be said, "that Bryan will be elected, I have reached that conclusion within tbe last two months. I have made speeches and felt the public pulse over a large por tion of the country. 1 believe Bryan will carry West Virginia, Maryland, Keutucky, Ohio, Illinoi* and Indiana. That would give him 99 additional elec toral vote* nnd the election, even if New York went agaiust hlm. I do not, however, anticipate the loss of New York. Bourke Coekran, David B. Hill, Carl Sthurj and Dick Croker are work ing seocerely and they are powers in that state." Oct. 22.—Webster Tammany daims Greater New York by 109,0(10. The Republicans claim the state to Harlem bridge by 16,000. 76, 000 from 100,000' leave a majority of 26 000 for the Democrats in New York. Hon. Wm. J. Bryan la to make thirty two speeches In tbe state of New York pext week. 1. B.

WE ARE STILL HEADQUARTERS FOR GROCERIES AND RANCH SÜPP BROWN & ELDREDG m A REPUBLICAN JURIST. Jadge B am banner n Rrpabllcaa Ja list of ML Lents Arraign* the Administration. Judge Horn bann er In an unanswerable arraignment of tbe McKinley adminis tration on its policies says this in pvt about the war policy: "When we drew the sword, we pro claimed to the world that it was done, not for our own aggrandizement, but for permitting a people cruelly oppress ed to govern itself and work out its own salvation. Not three years have elapsed since then, and we find ourselves using the very methods of oppressing n peo ple in tbe Philippines which the Span iards used in Cuba. The administra tion has placed tbe American people before tbe world in tbe position of a self-convicted liar. If we do not mend our ways we will shortly have to wage a war against tbe Cubans and Porto Ricaos, as we wage a war against the Filipinos, a war alike unwarranted by tbe principles of humanity or by the constitution of the United States, which provides that congress alone shall have power to declare war. "I have heard many eminent jurists, prominent members of the Republican party, declare that the war which we are waging in the far east Is |in dero gation of the constitution. In this view I fully concur. Has the constitution become a past issue, aa well aa tbe Declaration of Independence? It seem* so, when servile orgsos of the admin istration dare to denounce those as guilty of high treason who dare to de fend it. As a political measure our war in tbe Philippines is a crime, as a com mercial and financial venture it ia a blunder. Tbe cost to date would have duplicated manifold the cost of our Asiatic squadron, even bad it been en tirely destroyed by our own act. Its cost past and to come can not be repaid within this century by the ad vantages to our commerce and increase of our revenue. Shall the Amtrlcan people be taxed to death to open new fields of speculation to its favored few? wjjai about the thousands of its heroic sons who are killed far away from their home by pestilence and war in order to perpetuate the lofamj' of the nation as eppressor of the weak? "In former days, when any people en gaged in n struggle of maintaining the right to govern itself, the American people was the first to extend to it its sympathy. It was so with Greece and was sa with Hungary. It was firstglven to the present administration to stifle resolutions of sympathy with a people waging a war to maintain its independ ence with a heroism unparalleled in a history. When such resolutions were introduced, too cowardly to vote them down and too cowardly to adopt them, the administration saw to It that they were consig ned to the living tomb of a committee." Big Fear. Mr. Bryan, Senator Hill, Bourke Cock ran and Senator Wellington make up the Big Four who will speak at Madison Square Garden, New York, this, Saturday evening. Greater Ntw York Is to be filled with eloquent speakers. Every hall In tbe city haa been engaged and the welkin will ring with Democratic eloquence and with Democratic music. Vice-Chairman Payne of the Re publican National committee concedes Idaho to tbe Democrat*. He is excel lent authority. The next thlog in order is to collect the roosters for crow ing and to clear the throat for shouting. duty honestly and faithfully from now , until the going down of the sun ou tbe fltta of November. The history of the closing days of the campaign of 1892 ia repeating itself in 1900. The Republicans claimed everything In sight up to the last mo meut, even when they »had known of their defeat two weeks before. A DUTY honestly and faithfully per formed lingers in memory long after the performance. Every Democrat in Bingham county ought to do his full Henry E.

The Idaho Democrats propose the next thing to It: they have nominated their candidate In convention. The nomination then Is by the people. sen WITH the campaign arguments all In and the evidence submitted to the voters aa juror* it will be remarkably strange if the verdict is not in favor of the Democrats of Idaho.
