When a man of the admitted legal talents and fairness
of Senator Borah who sat upon the national committee
and heard all the evidence and the arguments declare^
that Taft's nomination was stolen, there is nothing left
for Idaho people to say or to do but to accept his conclu
sions as absolute fact.
In addition, however, to the declarations of Senator
Borah, the people of Idaho have the assurance of Senator
St. Clair of Idaho Falls, who served on the credentials
committee of the Chicago convention. Senator St. Clair
signed, with others, a formal statement and protest de
daring that a conspiracy had been formed before the con
vention met at all to steal the nomination.
Moreover, so far as we have seen, there has not been
a single member of the Idaho delegation which repre
sented the state at the national convention, who has ever
stated that in his belief Taft fairly and honestly secured
the nomination, or who ever denied that such nomination
was stolen. Not even Heitman, an original Taft man, nor
Hagenbarth, also a man with Taft leanings, nor Fisk, an
other Taft man, has ever undertaken to say that Taft was
honestly nominated or to deny that his nomination was
Ex-Governor Brady was on the ground during the
convention; he talked with national delegates from all
portions of the country; he knew the admissions made by
the Taft supporters that they were taking such delegates
from the anti-Taft columns as were needed to give them
the convention for Taft; he doubtless heard them state
that their purpose was not to elect Taft but to beat out of
the Republican party all those advocates of principles
euding to magnify the people and increase their influence
iu governmental affairs, and thereby to' lessen the power
and influence of the special interests. Mr. Brady was
there, and he has never said to the people of Idaho that
Taft was honestly and fairly nominated, or that' he was
the choice of the delegates elected by the Republicans of
the nation to speak for them.
Captain John E. Yates, senator from Ada county, was
at that convention; he, too, knows what transpired there.
He has never stated a belief that Taft was honestly nomi
nated or a disbelief that such nomination was deliberately
„.and wilfully and fraudulently stolen. In fact Captain
Yates knows and believes full well that Taft was not the
honest choice of that convention and that he was not hon
estly nominated and will so declare
C. C. Cavanah, a man known over the entire state as a
devoted, conscientious Republican, was at Chicago and
sat a part of the time on the national committee. He has
never told the people of Idaho that he ever believed Taft
honestly nominated and has never denied that such nom
ination was stolen.
C. W. Dempster, who came very near receiving enough
votes to nominate him for lieutenant governor on the Re
publican ticket, receiving several thousand more votes
than did Haines, the nominee for governor^ was at the
Chicago convention. Dempster will not tell the people of
Idaho that Taft was honestly nominated and he will not
To Enroll in the Progressive Party

Democrats and Republicans who wish to join have

the choice of the delegatee elected by the Republicans of
the nation in the national convention.
The Republicans of Idaho cannot disregard such an
array of authority. They must know and must admit that
Taft holds his nomination only by reason of the perpetra
tion of the greatest fraud that can be committed in a free
country—by a fraud against the Toting franchise itself,
whereby the first step was taken in ^conspiracy to de
prive the people of the power to elect their officials.
frow, What is it the Taft people of Idaho are demand
So . insistent and so persistent are they in their de
mands that this shall be done that they are making it a
sole test of membership in the Republican party, and they
have possession of the necessary machinery to make their
demand effective.
So insistent and so persistent is their demand that this
conspiracy and this theft be approved as a test of party
membership, that they will support not even the nominees
of their awn party unless they come out openly and pub
licly in such approval.
How can the'Republicans of Idaho in the face of such
evidence and in view of such a condition, continue to sup
port the bosses, the machine and the organization that
makes such demand? We do not believe they will do so
That is why a new party has been organized and a new
ticket placed in the field in this state. It- affords a com
mon meeting ground for hoth Republicans and Democrats
who wish better things in the politics of the state—who
wish the people to have greater power instead of having
that that they have taken from them—who wish effective
ness and efficiency in public administration and who still
have hope left of a better day.
The old patties have had their ties, their associations,
their hard battles and their won victories. These associa
tions, the animosities, the bitternesses are hard to over
come such that ohé can pass from one of those old parties
to the other. But here is a party—A PROGRESSIVE
PARTY—where both can find common ground and where
both can begin anew and carry to a successful termination,
the fight for the better things, the better officials, the bet
ter government, the greater power of the people and the
lesser power of special privilege.
It is in this spirit aud foj this purpose that the Pro
gressive state ticket is nominated in Idaho.
The Evening Chit-Chat
By Ruth I
WO good friend» had quarreled.
One, who Is of a passionate dis.
position, completely lost her
self-control and said many un
kind things.
When the thundercloud of misunder
standing finally passed over and the
sunshine of reconciliation began to
struggle out again, the quick-tempered
woman told her friend she was aorry
for her bitter words, and then added
cheerfully, "And now you'll forgive me
and forget all that I said, won't you?"
Whereupon the other woman answer
ed, "Forgive you? Yes Indeed, I'll do
that with all my heart, hut I cannot
promise to forget because that Is be
yond my power."
The first woman called that an un
gracious and relentless attitude.
Do you?
I don't. To me It was simply a
truthful answer. Perhaps It might
have been kinder for the woman to say
that she'd forget all about It and thlnga
would be Just as they were before, but
It probably wouldn't have been true.
In one of his essays Stevenson says,

and sweetheart, so far as I have gone

"Their Yesterdays" and "The
Harold Bell Wright,"
(A Review, by Elsbery W. Reynold*.)
"Their Yesterdays'* Introduce* to
the reader, as hls novels have not, the
real Harold Bell Wright. For the Arst
time hls own thoughts, rather than
those of hls characters, have shaped
themselves into a delightfully tender
story and we see life, love, and re
ligion, through hls eyes.
"Their Yesterdays" is not a novel,
but a love story of a man and a
woman in which there Is sentiment,
pathos, and realism. This story Is
told between the lines with the charm
and grace of "The Lady of the Deco
ration." Its V>etlc daintiness Is com
parable to that of "The Reveries of a
Bachelor." Its presentation of Ilfs Is
as direct and forceful as "The Let
ters from a' Self-Made Merchant to
Hls Bon." Its style Is unlike the
heavy stroke of a sword but 1» rather
the skillful thrust of a rapier.
Harold Bell Wright has won hls high
place as a story teller by Introducing
to the world "That Printer of Udell*«,**
"The Shepherd of the Hills." Dan
Matthews, ahd Barbara Worth, and
there are millions of readers with
gratitude In their hearts for the man
who has eo splendidly transplanted

plains, and city streets, to the print
ed pages of hls book», these noble men
and delightful women, thus portray
ing life with thé accuracy of a cam
era. AO a novelist, Harold Belt Wright
declines to be responsible for the views
held by hls characters. Insisting only,
that they are true to the life they
portray. Now on sale at tha book
