REPUBLICANS of RATHDRUM
and "Vicinity. sole issue of county division? In the Primary I was opposed by Miles F. Egbers who was running on t-lie one issue of county division. He lost, I won. How? By a majority of votes. In our form of Government the majority rules. Two years ago I was elected by this County to the State Senate on an Anti-County Division issue, by a majority vote of the Electors. In my literature distributed over all parts of the County prior to the election I had pledged my self against County Division; for reduction of the salaries of the County Commissioners and for an amendment of the Tax Foreclosure Law. While I opposed the creation of Lake County, I also carried out all my other promises and saved the Taxpayers of this County over $4000 per year by reducing salaries of County Commissioners (from $1800 each per year to $700 each per year), and in yearly savings on Tax . Foreclosures (amounting to over $1200 last year). REPUBLICANS, of this vicinity: While you and I may disagree on County Division at this time, is that a sufficient reason for you to refuse to support the REPUBLICAN PARTY AND ITS LEGISLATIVE TICKET? Are not all other combined matters that may come before our State Legislature, including the danger of Non-Partisan League control of this state, more urgent and more important than is the As a good Republican, Having entered this contest at the Primary. DO YOU NOT FEEL BOUND by the results of that Primary Election? DO YOU NOT BELIEVE IT TO BE YOUR DUTY to support the Nominees of your REPUB LICAN PARTY at this time and fight out the issue of County Division again at a later date? By the rules of every fair contest, by the square deal" spirit of every American citizen, by the intention of the Primary Election Law and by the principles of the REPUBLICAN PARTY you are morally bound to support the REPUBLICAN nominees selected at the primary. I solicit the vote of EVERY REPUBLICAN in Kootenai County and base my claim for your sup port on your loyalty to party and on my record of promises fulfilled. I it NELSON STATE SENATOR NELSON PROGNOSTICATES POLITI CAL OUTCOME IN IDAHO (Coeur d'Alene Press) State Senator Ralph S. Nelson re turned last evening from a trip ex tending through a number of the oortbern counties of the state and to Boise. When asked as to the political outlook in the state he said: "Nugent and Borah, it appears, will get the Nonpartisan vote and a large part of their respective parties' vote. However, a good many republicans are going to vote for Moore as against Borah on account of the fact that the senator did not repudiate the nonpar tisans, since it has been apparent that the leaders of the nonpartisans are closely allied and connected with the I. W. W's. For t he same reason a good many democrats are going to vote for Gooding as against John N ugent. "As- far as the siaifrtioket is con cerned with the exception of Mr. Parker, an old line democrat who is a candidate on the democrat ic ticket for state treasurer against John Eagleson the contest is a straight fight between the republicans and the nonpartisans. At Boise most of the influential democrats are openly supporting D.W Davis for governor. They are doing this by intervifews in the newspapers, I public letters and other active public efforts A few rabid democrats who are either candidates for appointment or who are actively connected with one faction of the organization, are supporting Samuels. They seem to be doing this in spite of the letter from Scboltz's office which stated that the reason the nonpartisans went into the democratic party was that a certain amount of ignorant democrats could 'b- nepended upon to vote democratic ticket do matter who the nominees were. The leading democrats who are openly working for D.W. Davis say the reason they are doing so is not that they-love the republicans more but because they feel that the social istic, radical nonpartisan doctrines will bring disrepute and destruction up m the state of Idaho, Its citizens and its industries, and that they are usine the republican party only as a means to vote against the nonpartisan candidates. ' Before starting on the trip I had thought that it was probably only in a few localities tnat the socialists and I.W.W.'s weregionnecting themselves with the nonpartisans. On the trip however, 1 found that the socialists were controlling the nonpartisan or ganization and that about 75 per cent of the legislative nominees of the nonpartisans over the slate are social ists or men with socialist leanings. The publicity now being giyeu the facts as to the socialistic and I.W.W. connections of the leaders of the non partisans will, I believe, turn the majority of farmers and workmen from the nonpartisans and they will leave this socialistic organization for all time. here in our own county who at I time belonged to the league and are now bitterly lighting it. I think,the election oi I). W. Davis is practically assured. The nonpartisans are mak ing a great effort to elect their nominees to the legislature, but I am positive they cannot succeed as in a great many counties they have no nonpartisan legislative ticket. As far as I can learn the condition in our own county Is unique and different from any other county in the state.In this county the nonpartisans claim that Mr.Root, their nominee for state "While in the south I saw a number of letters from farmers and workmen in the southern part of the state who were formerly nonpartisans but who have recently and openly i denounced the league on account of the I. W. W. connections of its leaders. 1 know of leading farmers one senator, will get the nonpartisan vote the votes in favor of county division and the labor union votes. I have never seen a combination pull through or last where the interests of the different parties were so opposite and conflicting as they are in this alleged combination. The laboring men and nonpartisans who live from Hayden Lake south are vitally interested in seeing that the county is not divided. Mr. Root ran on the couoty division ticket two years ago and of course is for county division. I may be mis taken but 1 cannot help believing that the labor union men and a great many of the nonpartisans living in the middle and southern parts of the county will vote for the republican legislative ticket on account of its stand against county division. "Mr. Kiger and I, two years ago, defeated the couoty division bill. In doing this we incurred the enmity of the voters in the north end of the county. Both of us voted for every reasonable law that was in the inter est of the farmers and laboring men and I am sure that a feeling of grati tude and appreciation will cause a large majority of the voters in this county to vote for us and the other members ff the legislative ticket who are pledged against county division. "The farmers of the slate are beginning to realize that this league is a foreign body to the state; that it is a close corporation so to speak or an aristocracy controlled solely and absolutely by men from Minnesota and Dakota. The farmers union and the grange, on the other hand, are controlled locally. These organiza tions being locally controlled looked after the local conditions of the farmers in the different parts of the state. This is not so of the nonpart isan league. Its president being elected for twelve years and he and a few leaders having full control of the policy and flnances of the league dic tate, the league's course. Men elected on the nonpartisan ticket to the legislature will be subject not to their own judgment but are bound to follow ihe socialist leaders from a foreign state. The Inaho workmen and farmers when they realize they are surrendering iheir indivdual rights surely will not vote this social istic foreign body into control of our local affairs For For For For For For For For For For a no For For a i of »I REPUBLICAN STATE TICKET For U.
