BOISE, IDAHO, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1912.
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.

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
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
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

ten pledge to support Borah for the senate also get off the
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
The people are getting tired of the bushwhacking cam

Now It surety must be pretty trying

as thoroughly spoiled as a fond and

The Evening Story
By MOLLIE K. 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
"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
"Tes. A pleasant ontlng Is a fortune
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
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?"
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
