THE IDAHO NEWS.
BLACKFOOT. SATURDAY AUG. 33 1880. Speaker Reed may now take up his surcingle one buckle hole; he can not force the Force bill through Con gress. the Congress may as well adjourn in August as in September; the fuel for political fire is giving out, and be sides, Blaine and others keep stirring the Are so it wont throw out heat to the leeward. Congress can not serve the people and the Louisiana lottery at the same time. As it was the people who elect ed Congress,- however, and who pays it its wages, its first duty is to the people. for A. ters uey it Benjamin Butler is not a character to be admired or often quoted, but having to talk of Andrew Jackson iu a speech, he characterized him thus : "IShat he meant he said, what he said he meant, and what he meant he did, and something was done. We have fallen lately on days when noth ing is done and a great deal is said, and very Utile is meant." A genera tion of honest, iron men like Jackson would do this country good, and ney er more needed than now. One of the resolutions adopted by the Republican party at Blackfoot on the 11th inst reads as follows : Resolved : That the position taken by the Republican party of the nation, on the lead, silver and Mormon ques tions merits the approval of all citi zens of Bingham county regardless of party affiliations, and that the con tinued opposition of the Democratic party to these interests which are yital to our prosperity should receive the condemnation of all good citizens. From the readiug of this it would appear that the Mormon question is vital to the prosperity of the Repub licans. The declaration of principles adopt etl by the Democrats of Bingham county jn convention assembled August 15th have the ring of the pure metal and the recommendations of the Central Committee urging a fair election and an honest count must meet with the heartiest endorse ment of all sober minded, right think- ; ing and honest voters in the county. And then following these with the strong ticket of well fitted and well qualified men for the different offices we enter the campaign boldly and challenge our opponents for better principles and recommendations and for better men. Bingham county has six Republi j them is at Boise this week seeking, oflfice, Savidge wants to go Congress: | Judge Morgan on the Supreme bench; and M hittier, Stewart, Wright and Winters want to be district attorney, John Quincy Adams neyer would j have written his popular poem: "Man wants but little here below," if the oid man had had the honor of the | can lawyers, and the very last one of acquaintance of Bingham county's modest Republican lawyers. The gain iu gross earnings by the railroads of the country over last year is well maintained, notwithstanding the general impression that there has been a falling off in traffic*. For 138 roads, representing four-fifths of the mileage of the country, there was an inerease in July of 8£ per cent, as compared with the same month in 1889. There is likely to be a decrease later in the year, on account of the partial failure in the crops; but thus far 1890 has shown greater railroad earnings than any corresponding period in the past. REPUBLICAS STATE CONVENTION. Since Tuesday last when it was known that all the delegates were on the ground, eyeryone has been on the qui vive for something fort shadowing the action of the convention and later on for news of what was actually done. There have been a .till ness and dearth of news that seem omin ous. Other points along the lines may have been more fortunate than Blackfoot but here the suspense was truly annoying. So far as reliable in formation has been received when we go to pres? we learn that Dr.* W. \V.

Pinkhara Secretary of State, for Judge Sweet for Congress. S. C. Win ters of Eagle Rock, for District Attor uey for the 5th Judicial District all What has delayed the action of the convention so long is hard to tell, but ; it is plain to guess that the machinery was not in good working order. I . ... .. . ,> ... The vigor with which the Republi cans have attacked our county ticket ; Our County Ticket. shows that they fully understand the situation, and the fierce struggle they j must make to win. Some of them on openly admit that we will elect one i man on the ticket; others of them | say two certainly; others still say j three and maybe four, while others j shake their heads doubtfully and say: Wait for the count 1st of October. The ticket as a whole gives general satisfaction to the Democratic party : and the members believe that they will elect every man on the ticket. ' Our - P Republicans know it to be a strong ! or ticket and the men whom they first j believed to be the weakest thereon I ; a ; they now suspect as having far more strength than they first imagined. The feelers that have been thrown out since the convention begin to satisfy them that we are strong at a every point and that it will take their biggest guns to batter us down. Their frank admissions, admissions of their best informed men, that we will elect one, two, three and maybe four, on the ticket is a giveaway for them, and it satisfies us that with united bar moDions work we can elect every man from top to bottom on the ticket. A t'nrse nf Politics. The worst imaginable feature about politics is the wholesale and indis j criminate misrepresentation, abuse an( j yiRification of men because they | a8pire to and are nominated for office. Nomination for office is elevation and elevation is exposure to everv bluu derbus and weapon carrying villify j n g amunitiou. These things ought not be so but they are so A can didate is rarely objected to because | le j 3 incompetent but rather because he Î 9 a rascal of the deepest dye ; t>e-l cause he is dishonest, because lie is a ; thief and is not to be trusted and be cause his crimes are as numerous as stars in the milkv way. Men meet together every day on a social and business plain with every confidence implied or expressed each in the other and if one be named for office, then his integrity, his honesty, his veracity and his social standing are straightway as in questioned and he is lucky if he be not banished verbally to worst than In campaign times some men carry charcoal in their pockets and can draw you as black a devil as you ever saw even though an It is Siberian exile. angel might sit for the picture. wonderful what loose reins they giye | to their imaginings and to their tongues. But this state of *hings is not confined to individuals; members of the press, too, often catch it up and in meau, sneaky, inuendos not only attack men but attack their friends, and often too invade the ; on in we sacred sanctity of their homes. Such a course is not justified by those who are working for the purest and best teachings of journalism anymore than vinifications and defamations are ap proved by the cultured and refined iu society. If the desire of this course be for good, the means will never bring * about the end. Good men. honest men, competent and well qualified men say everyday : I would not ask 1 for any office in the gift of the people, ; because I would not take the abuse that would bo heaped upon me fori all the honors and emoluments of the office. Men do not want to be as ; sailed or attacked on every hand by others who are themselves vulnerable and who ha ye as many sore places ou I their own bodies as Job had boils.and ! for this reason they refrain from com ing to the front for positions to which ! * ^ j the n,a8ses of voters wou,d be K lad 40 . ; elevate them. The News will depre-; cate any such a course of defamation j on the part of individuals or of any j members of the press in the coming i | j j : then silence will lie golden in - P rom P 4 '°g 8 aud temptations to speak ! or write tbin S 9 of candidates in j ^ com ing campaign, ....,.««.*w THE FaKMEB>» IN POL1TKS. Ltt every man ask him campaign. self this question for an houcst answer: Did I ever wilfully and knowingly I vote for a mean or bad man of my ; own party rather than knowingly for a better man in the opposite party, ; and if the honest answer comes yes. all j Any man who can determine which ' wav the farmers are going to jump at the next Presidential election has got a key to wealth as boundless ns that of the genii of Alladin ; that is if he possesses half that store already, Directly speaking, whichever way the farmers shall jump the government is ' going to follow, and to know that ! beforehand is to hold dead sure mills against the man who does not know it. The indication are now that by the time the campaign begins the farmers and their coadjutors will have their interests sufficiently organized to go into the campaign with a solid | front. It seems now that the farmers north, south, east and west are going to unite upon some candidate* who W,H P ,ed « e him#elt 40 thclr F'l'cy.

We the duly chosen delegates from the various precincts of Bingham County in Convention assembled at Blackfoot, in said county on this 15 day of August 1890, fully appreciat ing the new and grave responsibilities d ivolvingupon us as représentât! ves of one of the great political parties about to contend for supremacy in our new bom State, promulgate this our de ap iu for * i-laratiou of the priciplea of the IK* oeratic party of Bingham County.
