Washington advices encourage the
belief that statehood for Idaho is not
far off. In that event we shall have
a general election for state officers
within 90 days after admission. It
looks now that all of this will be done
before June 1st.

means speedy statehood for Idaho,
and statehood means an early election,
and the first election under stale gov
ernment means a hot campaign. No
local issues will be raised at the com
ing election; it will be a straight fight
from the shoulder, democrat against
republican and republican against
democrat. The first election will set
tle the mooted question—Whether
Idaho is republican or democratic be
cause both parties will put forth their
entire strength to a man, and the par
ty winning will pull down the scales.
