BOISE, IDAHO, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1912. PAYMENT. Oh, Charles Adolphus, go your way, and paint the town from day to day. until you've had your till; but every foolish act, gadsooks, Is charged against you in the books, and you must pay the bill. One thing Is suro ns death or tax, which Is that retribution whacks each erring mortal jay; long years may pass, already yet, before you're culled to pay the debt, but some time you must pay. Go, rake In wealth with greedy paws, and violate all moral laws, and cheat and swindle still; but somo day—maybe when you're old, and love seems better far thun gold—you'll have to pay tho bill. Oh, loafer, loaf the hours away, and waste tho golden summer day, refuse to toll or till! When winter comes and workers rest In cozy homes, of ease possessed, you'll have to pay the hill! Oh maidens, radiant and fair, who use peroxide on your hair, and kalsomlno your cheeks; who twist your systems all awry until the gods look down and sigh, "Oh. pipe tho dizzy«freaks!" With all your paint and furbelows, and shoes that crush your aching toes, you're surely out to kill; but when the glow of youth Is past, and ago comes creeping on at last, you'll have to pay the bill. Each foolish action that we do, each wicked course that wo pursue, we settle for some day; tho captain's office open stands, where we must face this world's demands, and some time we must pay. Copyright, 1912 by Geurge Matthew Adam». FOR CAPTAIN DAVIS TO ANSWER. Captain Davis, secretary of the Republican state cen tral committee, published yesterday what he calls a denial of a charge made in the Capital News that there had been considered a proposal and suggestion that a number of bankers, business men and others of Boise contribute a campaign fund of $10,000 to the Republican state central committee, and that when State Chairman Day made an effort to secure such contributions he was confronted with a demand that SenatQr Borah first eome out squarely in favor of Taft; that Chairman Day and Secretary Davis thereupon called upon Senator Borah and laid the matter before him and asked him what he was going to do about it and that Senator Borah refused to consider or comply with the demands made upon him even though he was advised to do so by the state chairman and state secre tary. This alleged "denial" of Captain Davis, if care fully read in connection with the original stories in the Capital News concerning the same matter, corroborât» all the essential points contained in that article. Perhaps il was because the captain knew that any statement lie might make would so nearly corroborate those articles is the reason lie waited so long before making his statement People do not usually carry the details of such statements in their minds for ten days and more. Bm in view of the fact that Captain Davis' statement was intended, as it purports, as a denial we wish to call attention to some vital matters that he overlooks in male ing his statement of the facts, which omitted matters go to the very vitals of the disputed point. Who were the two men who met you, Captain, and talked with you as to the uncertainty as to the attitude of Senator Borah and to whom you say Chairman Day sug gested that "we ask Senator Borah to meet with vou gen tlemen and the others invited to meet with us, and explain his position to you as he has explained it to us?" Who were "Ihe others invited to meet with us," as you quote tho statt« chairman? And who constituted that list of 2") "names of well known business and professional men of Boise," that you say was made by you? How far wrong was the Capital News in tlie list of the same men that it published? If you want the people to be fully informed and to know the real facts in connection with this transaction, as you apparently seem to be, why not give them ALL the facts so that they may judge for themselves? Again you say; - Senator Borah snld; 'Til meet with these gentlemen on one condition." This condition he then stated, and then added: "If they comply with the con dition I'll meet with tlirm and convince them that I am as loyal to the Repub lican ticket as they are. If they do not meet the condition they have no right to question my loyalty to tho Republican party." Now, Captain, inasmuch as you have given a portion of your conversation and inasmuch as you have taken the liberty to quote »Senator Borah in part, you are good enough lawyer to know that the jury you appeal to, the people, are entitled to have that full conversation. WHAT WAS THE CONDITION THAT SENATOR BORAH IMPOSED? Now, out with it; DON'T LET THE PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE TRYING TO PUT THE SENATOR IN A FALSE LIGHT AS IMPOSING CERTAIN CONDITIONS FOR A FEW BOISE BUSI NESS MEN AND OTHERS THAT HE DOES NOT GIVE TO THE PEOPLE. We do not believe that Sena tor Borah is that kind of a politician, but you have left the impression in your statement that he is. BE FAIR AND JUST TO HIM, AND .TELL HIS FRIENDS WHAT THOSE CONDITIONS WERE. His enemies in this city have doubtless been made aware of them before this. To whom did the senator refer when he said: "If THEY will comply with this condition, I'll meet with them ? " Did he mean just the two gentlemen you say vis ited you and made the suggestion as to the "uncertainty and confusion," or did he mean the entire list of 25 that you prepared? If he meant the 25, how is it that Senator Borah should feel impelled to stipulate a condition of any kind, unless you informed him that they, too, were com plaining of his "uncertainty" and of the general "con fusion?" Moreover, would these gentlemen from whom you au ticipated these contributions comply with Senator Borah's conditions and did they so comply? Now, if you want to be fair to the people, let the people know what the conditions were so that they may judge for themselves whether the senator was fair about it. Let them know whether the gentlemen comprising your list complied with the conditions or not SO THAT THE PEOPLE MAY KNOW WHETHER THEY ARE FAIR TO THE SENATOR OR NOT. You have undertaken to deny, but you have admitted so much that it seems to us you cannot be just without tell ing it all. The Capital News has accused you and the state chairman and the majority of the state committee with being unfair and in a measure antagonistic to Sena tor Borah. WE STILL MAKE, AND RENEW THAT ACCUSATION. Now show the people that we are wrong by giving ALL the facts in connection with this trans action. FOR THE STATESMAN TO ANSWER. The morning paper shows its friendliness for the Re-» publican legislative candidates this morning by calling for their resignation from the ticket. Not satisfied with the demand that Borah get off the ticket that organ of Idaho Republicanism is now demanding that the Republican leg islative ticket which the other day met and signed a writ ten pledge to support Borah for the senate also get off the ticket. Its demand is made upon an absolutely false basis, just as nearly all its demands and statements are based, but tho real purpose is clearly and abundantly shown. In order, however, to have the question settled as defi nitely as all political questions arc being settled before tlie people this year, we demand from the Statesman to answer fairly and finally the following questions: Do you desire the election of the Republican candidates for the legislature from Ada county and will you support them all as now upon the ticket? Do you desire the return of Senator William E. Borah to the United States senate, and will you work fairly and faithfully toward that* end from now until a senator is elected? The people are getting tired of the bushwhacking cam paign being conducted by those who in words pride them selves upon being supporters of Republicanism, but who in deeds are cutthroats. They want not only the candi dates, but the newspapers to come out fairly and squarely as well. The Evening Chit-Chat By Ruth Cam« Of NE hears a groat deal of protest from time to time against the owners of houses and apart ments and the hostesses of boarding and lodging houses who bar children. Now It surety must be pretty trying to find one's s$»lf shut out of a home which one Is perfectly willing to pay for, simply because he has dared to help keep the race alive. But I wonder if the landlords and hostesses deserve all our blame. It seems to me that tin* Ill-bred children and the careless parents who bring down odium on all children deserve at least half tlie blame. Surely lie who abuses a priv ilege Is just as much at fault when the privilege Is withdrawn, as he who withdraws it. A beautiful apartment house was recently put up In our town. Families with children were not excluded and two moved In. One family had three children; they were well brought up and did not cause any trouble. Tho other family had but one child, a little girl aliout six years old who had been as thoroughly spoiled as a fond and foolish mother could spoil her. This child was an Inveterate tease nd one of her most pleasing tricks was WELCOME LITTLE STRANGER \\ K / Fa wHEH ARtr 'OL> G ORNA c T0R.H oACK t Rost Loose Kiddo «*/. rear f the f her third to get nut on the lawn in front house and then argue at the top lungs with her mother at tho floor window. Dialogues like this were frequently howled into tlie ears of the other ten ants: "What are you doing down there? 1 told you to stay in the house." "I want to go down to Ruth's." "I told you that you couldn't. Come right back up here." "I don't want to. Can't I go down to Ruth's for just a little while?" "No, Margery. Come right upstairs. I'll tell your father If you don't." "Can I have some candy if 1 come up?" "Perhaps so. You come In and I'll sec." I have cut this dialogue rather short on account of limited space, h :t some of the tenants assured mo that Mar gery and her mother were troubled by no limits, and that such dialogues fre quently lasted Hi minutes at a time, in terrupting naps, rendering concentra tion on work or play totally Impossible, and generally making tilings miser able. The result of this and other displeas ing ^habits of the youngster, quite too numerous to mention, was that two tenants gave notice and the landlord finally had to ask the offenders to leave. The rule has now been made that no families with children will be accepted In that apartment house. "It Isn't that 1 don't like children. 1 love them,' said the hostess of a board ing house In reference to her refusal to take a family with two children. "It's Just taht I can't run the risk of getting Ill-bred children who will drive away the rest of my guests." Birthday Calendar 2 If This Is Your Birthday You aro fortunate.

WOMEN Of IDAHO ARE ACM FOR BORAH "1 believe that nearly every woman in Idaho will vote for legislative can dldntrs who are pledged to Senator Borah," declared Mrs. Robert Spang ler of Twin Kails, editor of tho Idaho Clubwoman, yesterday. "The senator has worked so hard for Révérai measures ill wliieli the women of this state are Interested that I be lieve they »till give him a handsome vote on election day. llis efforts for the passage of the child labor law, the children's bureau, and many other things that romp home to every woman make him popular among those with whom I have talked on the subject, and I think they will all support him.

WETHERELL When 1 was eighteen years my father and mother both being dead, and I, not having a cent In the world, said to a friend one day that I thought I would take a trip to Europe. j j I well romember the look she gave me. ! ! Indeed, eo Impressed was she with the | absurdity of my Idea that ahe didn't | think It worth while to remark upon * It. The truth is I was dreaming aloud. I But a few weeks later I learned that I had been left a legacy of 9400.. Then I put my dfeam to practice. ! Dreamers are not understood. There Is likely to be some method In their madness, but their more practical ac quaintances take no cognizance of this. There wae s method In my madness, though I hardly understood It myself. Terhaps my story will explain it What I did with my $400 was to buy a two months' trip to England and the continent of Europe. When my friends heard of what I was about to do they wondered If they had not better shut me np in a lunatic asylum. "She's certainly gone daft," said one. "What Is she going to live on when she gets back?" remarked another. "Do some hard work," put In a third. "That will take the nonsense out of her." One of my chums repeated these re marks to me that I might benefit by : them. But I didn't. I prepared for ; my journey and sailed away, remark ing that I would have one good time in my life If I never had another. The last Morels I heard from the dock were: "Are you coming home with that for tune?" "Tes. A pleasant ontlng Is a fortune In itself." Now, I didn't know any more than they what was to happen to me. I cer tainly had no idea that my trip was to be completely spoiled, as it was. My room mate on the ship going out was a crabbed old maid. She was not only seasick, but afflicted with an incurable disease. She was so stingy that she would not tip the room stewardess, who would do nothing for her. Being unable to go to the dining saloon for 0l<1 ' meals, the Invalid ordered the steward ess to bring them In to her. The stew ardess would say, "Yes, m'm," go away j an d would not return, What could I do—see the creature ' starve? Of course not. I waited on i her all the way over, and when we reached Southampton, she being unable ; to leave the ship without assistance, I was obliged to take her ashore with me. When I got her there I felt com -1 pellcd to take her to London. "Hadn't you any relatives to comej with you?" I asked. "No, and I couldn't afford to pay thej way of any of them If I had." "Can't you afford to hire some one to take care of you?" "No." Well, the woman continued to grow worse. I had the choice of deserting her, leaving her to the tender mercies of nobody or staying with her. I didn't scruple to tell her that she was spoil ing my trip. Her reply was that I hod better go on and leave her to her fate. She might as well have told me to give her poison to get rid of her. At first she wouldn't do anything to relieve me if she could, and afterward she couldn't. She continued to sink, but remained alive, so that I couldn't got away from her and pursue my trip. There was one curiosity in London I had always wished to see. One morn ing I gave a maid half a crown to at tend to the Invalid for a few hours while I went to the tower. When l j returned the maid told me that her I charge had sent her out with a note for J a man. who bad come to her und been shut up with her for half an hour. He had taken other persons into the room, but only for a few minutes. I didn't care to ask an explanation ! of this of the sick woman, for It was j none of my business, ner Illness con- ; tlnued so long that the time and money I had put aside for my trip J were nearly exhausted. One day the j Invalid called me to her and snid to j me: "I'm going to die. I don't wish j any doctor to tell me so. He would chnrge me £2 at least and I know It j myself. After my death you will find ' five sovereigns In my trunk. Bury mo here. My bones are not worth tak- | lng to America. You'll find an envelope ; tinder my pillow. Take It to the ad- j dress In Philadelphia written on It." Tho woman died just before the ! steamer sailed on which I hnd engaged ; a return passnge. I bad barely time , to find a place to btiry her when I was | obliged to go aboard. On reaching port several of my friends were at the dock to meet me. One of them called; "Did yon Bee It all?" "Oh. yes. I saw London; there's enough there to see without going farther. The tower Is immensely In teresting." A few days after my arrival I thought of the envelope I was to de liver and took It to the address on It. Marbury & Smith, attorneys. One of the firm opened the envelope and took out a paper. Then he asked me some questions, finally Inquiring my nnme. When I told "him he gave me a quick glance and said; "You are the beneficiary of this es tate." "Estate! What estate?" "This Is a will, it makes you heiress to property worth $250.000." The moral of this story Is that those Who leave something to chance are not always wrong.
