V /HOSE BUSINESS INTERESTS" V /HOSE BUSINESS INTERESTS" j The loudest howl that has been heard, 1 believe, from the persons in terested in the success of the Recall petition, comes from alleged "business interests" who claim to have been grossly harmed by the honorable mayor's efforts to enforce our laws. Our chief of police has stated in gen eral in one of our papers that no lock or door has been smashed since the first of the year in these so-called "raids." Now, the people arc always inter ested in the business interests, the legitimate interests of their city, es pecially those that have to do with personal prosperity and with the clean prosperity of their fair city; but not in the puny affairs of certain individu als, whose business may not directly or indirectly concern the general pros perity of the community. The people are interested in the big mercantile firms of the city, in the hotels, es pecially the magnificient Owyhee hotel, interested in our fine Commer cial club, but are they interested in landlords who, for years have been getting goodly rentals from structures, old and new, for purposes, often brought into the limelight as not wholly pure. Are the People interested in these "business interests," if these are the interests clamoring, for the recall of our honorable mayor? And are they not? I have yet to be shown where the legitimate, big mercantile interests, the shipping interests in Boise have been seriously harmed by raids on downtown rooming houses. I am in a splendid position, personally, to know absolutely that the cash grocery interests of the city arc proceeding, unhampered by the police's law en forcement efforts. They are not harmed by their efforts. Motives in fights of this kind are not always pure, either and it would be refreshing to know positively the motives of the forces on either side of this municipal conflict wouldn't it? Could it possibly be, that there are some who are actuated by a greed for the almighty dollar; a greed cloaked in the garment of "public good." Such a greed knows no morality, has no sound principles of character, and cares nothing for the welfare o. the This Is the Last Week in Our Old Home.

Or are good men being misled into believing that our honorable mayor has done terrible things to the detriment of the commonwelth, and simply' has a mean disposition, and cares nothing for the 'business interests." Motives should be known, otherwise talk is cheap. Less than a year ago the Owyhee roof garden was closed midst an awful holler. Now does the closing of the roof garden so c< ncern every man, woman and child of Boise? Are their mterests irreparably harmed by it? We arc all proud of the splendid Owy hee Hotel, especially since it can not sell, and does no sell intoxicating liquors. But we do not want, and we shall never consent to this "business interest" dominating the policies and of the administration of programs Boise. Now the writer is impugning the motives of no one, but simply seeks by interrogation to bring out the truth of the matter, which will ulti mately have to come out, and in no in stace wishes to be construed as insin uating. or muckraking the "business interests" of our city.
