No. 71 IS NOT BORAH State Committee Forced Protest SENATOR IS RELIEVED Of THE INCUMBRANCE ! : ! Win Be Permitted to Make | His Own Campaign, It Is Announced — Borah to Tour Through Northern Counties of State. _ ! Forced to give way to pressure from | all parts of the state centered <»n headquarters protesting against the tieing of a millstone, in John M. ; Haines, Republican gubernatorial! candidate, to Senator William E. Borah] without even the latter's consent in the j hopes of bolstering up a weak candi date for governor, the Republican state central committee reluctantly abandoned its unprecedented plans of fastening a candidate distasteful even to the members of his own party toi the coat tails of the most powerful! and popular man in the party, with the , 1 result the joint itine State ('hairnian Day planned by j Secretary j ; ! j Davis for Senator Borah and Haines 1 have boon abandoned. Hereafter these j two candidates will follow out sepa- ' rate itineraries. Scheme Was Injurious. Condemnation of the tactics em ployed by those in charge of the di reeting of the Republican state cam paign was not only local, but was statewide in opposition to the attempt to team Senator Borah and John M. Haines together without the consent of the former, which it was believed when this was done und is still be lieved was for the purpose of humiliat ing Senator Borah, the state chairman and secretary resorting to the ruse under cover of their management of the campaign. So far the manage ment conducted In this way has, it is claimed, not served to advance the Interests of the party and while It has| not injured Senator Borah it has made the gubernatorial candl a show date. Senator Borah left last night for North Idaho. He was not accompanied by John M. Haines. The guberna torial candidate lias been cut off In the one man game of ''tag'' lie was placing with the Junior senator and will make Ills own brilliant campaign speeches, alone, thereby giving him a better opportunity to display his ora torical abilities. Those who heard his addiesses when he tagged Sena tor Borah down to the southeast and back to the southern part of the state, uninvited by the senator and without even consulting him, have been kind enough to refer to the Haines addresses as ''alleged'' speech es. They are said to have made a laughing stock not only for himBelf but Senator Borah, for the state com mittee Is claimed to have attempted to make it appear both candidates were making strong and eloquent ad dresses. Trick Exposed; Protests Corns In. When the trick that was played on enajr.r Borah was exposed through the publication of the facts,.the pro test that rolled In from every part of the state kept the state chairman and secretary busy trying to make explan ations. These were not satisfactory and the protests still came in, finally crystallizing In a demand that those In charge cease the underhanded meth ods to embarrass candidates, and not only cut Mr. Haines away from Borah, but permit the latter to follow out a separate Itinerary. The showing said to have been made by Haines did not promote his candidacy and when the scheme was exposed, the committee was severely condemned for the ac tion of the chairman and seeretary. This condemnation came from promi nent party men who did not mince words In their protest, hence the an nouncement that Mr. Haines has been cut off as a team-mate of Senator Borah.
