Ohio w\U tpake a state couipaign
on national issues.
The, big crops,in the West and the
movement of Eastern money in this
direction to handle them, ought to
make money matte) s a little easier. It
will do .it.
Ij is not good horse sense to Iocr
the stables after the horse is stolen.
There is no use printing the acts of
our legislative body after they have
been repealed by the next following.
The^e is an old nantjcal maxim in
common use: rats leaves sinking hull.
Mr. Quay will resign the chairman
ship of the Repuhliyau National.Com
The Eastern press is busying itself
with a discussion of the question: was
Abraham Lincoln a politician? Iu the
menu tune Old Uncle Abe is resting
in the far away land where politics
never break in on the melody of the
songs that ate suug.
The fight is on in Ohio The bat-j
tie is in an open field and no flank
movements. It is McKinley anq 3ic- j
Kinley bill against Campbell and tariff
yeform. It is an open, fair and square
issue. The results will show what the
Jt is fun by the ing full to sit in the
shade and note a political engagement.
Idaho politicians have this opportu
nity. They can watch the battles in
Iowa and Ohio, and learn, as they have
never learned, of the real science of
a political warfare.

Reports say that a big number of

no callers for them; so near and yet
Our republican friends of the coun

"lafture" because they believe the
democrats are playing on a discordant

Some Tennessee convicts were put
to work in a mine in the eastern part
of that state; the miners rajsed a riot;
the governor called out the militia
and sent them down to restore peace;
the miners captured the militia and,
put them on a train and shipped them
home. The miners hold the fort but
trouble is anticipated.
A plank in Ohio democratic plat
form bears this inscription:
We demand the reinstatement of
the constitution standard of both gold
and silver, with the equal right of
each to free and unlimited coinage.
This is the ring of the pure metal
and written so plain that a man with

it Must Pay Well.
Sujlding stone quarried fora ready
market by convict labor at 50 cents
per day for each laborer, the state
paying board for such laborers, must
be as profitable as advertising for
school teachers in the east at salaries
ranging from $75 to $225 per month.
It is rumored and the rumor has
floated this far from the state capital |
that a number of convicts of our state
penitentiary is thus being worked in
a quarry either on the penitentiary
reservation or land now in contest.
The News is profoundly igporant of
any law that may have been passed
by the last legislature touching con
vict labor, and is therefore a subject
of "lafture" for those in position to
know, but it does know that the con
stitution says: All labor of convicts
confined in the state prison shall be
done within the prison grounds,except
where the work is done on public
works under the direct control of the
state. Is the honest laborer of to-day
to be brought in competition with the
convict laborer of the state? Is the
constitution to be violated and con
viets be marched in and out under
guards on outside works? Is rumor
aright in her statements? Let the
State Prison Commissioners speak;
we call upon them to denv these ru
mors. They come from under the very
shadow of the state capital and the
people ought to know whether they be
true or not.
One of Two Things.
If all reports about the McCune
School Association with headquarters
at Boise be true, or even half be true,
and if State Auditor Moody and State
Superintendent of schools Harroun be
connected with the same as is alleged
in the reports then these state offlicial
ought to step down and out of office
for the good of the state, not only for
the good name of the state at home
but for its good name abroad. If they,
are not connected with the association
and have never been then for their
own good name they should deny

willing to give publicity to such re
ports, but this matter has become the
talk of the state, it has crossed the
boundary lines of the state, and it is
due the state that these officials make
^onestly, c * af>e ^ represent it

a disclaimer of all connection with
the association if they can truthfully
these things must be done.
Since the above was written and in
type as well as what we say elsewhere
in to-dayç ÿEws about tlje matter,Hon.
Silas W. Moody, State Auditor has
published a card in the Boise States
man admitting his connection with
the Squires' educational bureau and
claims, so far as he coqld learn there
states that he has never recieved one
dollar from the enterprise and adds
that he and Supt. Harroun can
give detailed information of the facts
in the case. We are glad Mr. Moody
makes this statement bat it is to be
regretted that he and Mr. Harroun
were silent so long in a matter involv
ing their good name as state officials.
The Democracy of Ohio.
The News is frank to express its
belief that the democrats of Ohio are
the boldest men of their party to-day,
and in Governor Campbell they have
a leader whose courage and daring
have never been surpassed, save by
courage and daring of old Andrew
Jackson. In their convention last week
fhey took the most advanced grounds
known in the politics of any state in a
long time. If they win they prepare
tlje way for the greatest democratic
victory in 1892 known in the past fifty
years. If they lose, the curtain drops
and shuts them out from the light of
another victory for long veais to come
There were some divisions in their
state convention but there can be
none in the campaign. Every demo
crat with democratic instfnets will
fall into line. All petty faction« will
dwarf and fade away and the party
will be solidified from the Great Lakes
to the Ohio river. The issue is su
preme for or against democracy. They
must fight and win or lose in their
advanced position; from it there can
be no retreat, the bridges are burned
behind them. They have placed Ohio
in the leadership of the great West in
the movements that wou such glorious
| results for the party last November,
ministration of the affuirs of the gov
ernment, and further they declare
againt the ruinous extravagance of
t^e party in power as shown bv the
, billion congress of last winter. Ohio,
this race, has been made to stand
in favor of the interests of the great
West as against the northeast and the
influence of the great West must be
given her. ItisCampbeltfortbein
terests of the great West or McKinley
for the protected interests of the East.
Whioh it h*?

They have boldly demanded for the
people all that the people demand for
themselves. In their platform they
demand taxation only for revenue and
not for protection; they demand free
and unlimited coinage of both gold
and silver and for a currency regula
ted by supply and demand! they de
mand a gradual income tax that will
force the great money kings to bear
their share of taxation for the support
of the general government and they
