Entered as second-class matter January 4,1905, at the post office at Silver City, Idaho, under the Act of Congress of March 3, 1879 MEMBER WESTERN IDAHO PRESS ASSO CIATION. CHAS. A.. HACKNEV. MEADOWS, PKES. F. G. BURROUGHS, CALDWELL, SEC'Y. THURSDAY. DECEMBER 16. 1909. LINING UP. The people used powder and ball in their fight for constitu tional liberty. They have only the ballot in the contest inaug urated for industrial freedom. The lines are already drawn, and we find they are not political. On each side are Republicans, on each side Democrats—men of influence in the councils of the nation. On the one hand are those, and so far the most powerful, who are attempting to prostitute a great principle of government for the benefit of the few; on the other are those who would apply it as its framers —the founders of the Republican party—intended, for the benefit of all. When partisanship vanishes in the presence of such an issue, when Republicans and Democrats stand shoulder to shoulder against oppressive backed up by other Republicans and Democrats presenting equally solid front and strength ened by the knowledge of the power placed in their hands—the power of Cannonism and of Al d rich ocra ey—when such condi tions are presented, then the in tensity, the bitterness of the con test may be appreciated. The preliminares are to be fought out at the session of con gress convening last week. The real battle may be far off,—how remote none can tell. Prophecy is purposeless in the light of such a contest; but the duty of the people is unmistakable—to lend their support at the polls to those who are making the fight for them; to break the power of such men as Cannon by tearing down their supports, not in the next campain only, but in every ca in pain until the victory shall be won. The time has passed when honeyed words and platform platiudes will suffice. The citizen of today wants to know where every aspirant for office stands on the vital issues. He'don't care anything" about the froth anymore. The contest just be gun, and which will project it self monentously across the pages of this country's history, should develop a cleavage in the ranks as between the worthy and the unworthy, as between the : men and the mice.,—Statesman. agencies an Prizes for cattle shipments of superior quallity are offerer) I growers by the Portland Live j stock Exchange.

The offer is made to encourage the grower and feeder of cattle throughout this territory and is expected to aid in the develop ment of the livestock industry. The value of a growing livestock market at Portland is shown by receipts at the local yards du ring the past month. In November 6518 cattle, 583 calves, 7549 sheep, 12744 hogs and 274 horses were brought to the Port land market. The approximate value of the 457 cars that made up the receipts was $567,500, a tidy sum that went into the pockets of the famers and stock men of the Northwest. * J * ► ► THE BRUNZELL SALOON (D An old and established quiet and homelike resort with the best of Wines, Liquors, Cigars, Etc., Etc.
