A BEFUDDLED CHAMPION.
The befuddled Paris Post (Mormon) comes to the defense of President Roosevelt's Japanese policy and evidently thinks the fed eral government has control of the various state school systems, saying ; "We believe that President Roosevelt is right on the Japanese question and that the treaty between the two countries should be lived up to. The United States cannot afford to break treaty rights to satisfy demagogues. The United States is in a position to set other nations an example and it would he a poor example indeed to break a treaty after having agreed upon it. President Roosevelt is not the man to do so, and he tells congress and the world at large, in no .uncertain sounds, that the United States will live up to those treaty regulations if it takes the army and navy to enforce it. When Roosevelt knows he is right no power can swerve him from his purpose, and we admire him for it." The United States has no treaty with any government on earth which permits the subjects of those governments residing here to free education in the free public schools of the various states and the matter is one that under no circumstances could he made the sub ject of a treaty for the federal government has no control over the local public schools. The various states will continue to regulate their public school systems to suit their own people and the presi dent's threats in the matter are utterly wild and meaningless. m SHOULD BE BOSSES' TOOL. The Coeur d'Alene Sun (Rep.) is of the opinion that no new member should be elected speaker of the house, but that some one should be selected who has shown the bosses he will acquiesce in the legislation they may propose. We will let the Sun speak for itself, which it does as follows: "The speakership of the house of representatives in our legis lature is a very important position, and is seldom voted by the members to one of their number who is not thoroughly versed in parliamentary law and in perfect harmony with the policy of the party in power and the state administration, if it is part of the domi nating party. Therefore those members seeking the position will have to show the party leaders that they are true blue and dyed in the wool in the first place, and in the second they will have to acquiesce in the proposed legislation that may be outlined. As the appointment of the committees, which really shape legislation, is the work of the speaker, his position is one of responsibility, and new members of limited acquaintance in the state will find it difficult to climb into the chair, however able and worthy they may be." SUDDEN REFORMATION. The Statesman has become suddenly aware of the fact that matters in the courts should not be the subject of constant newspa per agitation. So it states in regard to the Gooding-Sheridan libel case and also as to President Roosevelt's absurd contention that he force the state of California admit her free schools Japanese children. The Statesman did not always have this regard for the pro prieties; in fact it has just closed a campaign in which it asserted a criminal case now in the courts of Idaho was the supreme issue, and railed against everyone who did not agree with it as a foe of law and order. And as for reverence for official position the Statesman's tirades against Judge Beatty just after the Pocatello convention rise up to condemn it. If that journal were more consistent its opinions would have greater weight. As regards ordinary precautions for health the citizens of Boise do not seem to care very much. For instance there are a large number of meat peddlers, who drive their wagon sfrom house to house and frequently one stops at a house, where the lady is just washing her baby. She hurriedly places it on the bed, cleans her hands on the not overly clean kitchen apron, goes to the wagon and examines one piece of meat after another, in each case tries its tenderness with her finger nail, raises it to her nose to test its fresh ness, throws it back into the box until one suits her fancy. This goes on from house to house, the chances being some of the ladies have been handling sick children before examining the meat.in the above manner. Think of the chances in using su$h meat, which has possibly been handled by 50 persons in addition to the peddlers, who are frequently not overclean themselves. Unless the bars are put up there will be 5,000,000 Japanese in the United States in another 20 years i The congressional delegations from the Pacific coast and intermoun- : tain states should he alert to their duty.
