The board of county commissi 011 - «h has taken tardy action to collect the unpaid taxes of the Humblrd Lumber company. The tax Is a Just debt, eo deolded by tbe oourtaf and should have been collected long ago, bat It looka aa though It may have been held over tbe Humblrd Lamher company aa a club to compel It to support tbe republloan tloket In the lata election. Whether this was the case or not It la a (hot that the temps ny, though the Humbtrda are l*bld southern democrats, did give Its support both morally and fluau otallf to the republloan ticket. The people will appreciate It If tbe beard now doea ita duty and forces the big oompeny to dlagorge. It la •ow enjoying too much favoritism from the people through tbe eseeseor and commtaeiuuers In tbe way of $3 aamaeed valuations on timber lands from 1100 to 0300 an acre. Much favor* undoubtedly Influence the big Corporation* to support tbe party In power. The Preae wlsbea all people taxed alike, but In Kootenai the m u who owns one quarter asctiou of tlm bar la ameaaed from 100 to 300 per Cent more than tbe person bolding large tracts end In tbe case of the Humblrd Lumber cumpnay we will Hot be surprised to see a compromise of their beck taxes made iu tbe set llemeot now ordered, tu tbe face of the fact that the highest courts have pamed upon tbelr validity. THE WEIL CONTEST. Now that tbe evldneee Is com pleted la the Weil eon test oaae whereby be will atteaipt to occupy the eana tor tel east to which J. L. Mo Clear was sleeted, It la time for the oHlaana of Coeur d'Alene to act In their own Inteerst In a manner that will show tbe senate which way the wind blows In thla city. Weil's own wrltn mil, with one exception, swear that the voting iu Coeur d'Alene precinct was conducted properly and lawfully and that every person wa permitted to vote without Interfer ence. The single exoeptiou was Conuty Attorney Whltla, who swore otherwise aud ..dmltted Jthat he had Ignorantly committed unlawful acta on that day. Tbe caae has fallen fiat aud with his big array of legal talent, five attorneys, Mr. Well pro duced no evtdenoe, aside from the county attorney's testimony, to sus tain bis charge*. On the other hand these witnesses and must of them well known republican*, proved by their testimony that Well bad absolutely no ouaae for complaint aud if be ia seated It will be against th* will of the people and by a partisan senate devoid of juatioe. To show that tbe proceeding la rotten we meutlou tbe fact that 0. J. Shoe maker, the repub lican county chairman, absented him self from Rathdrum during the whole time of the hearing In order that he might not be oontamtnated by the rotten attempt, to steel the honor of en election from one who had fairly won It—thla to hia credit. The oitlaeaa of Coeur d'Alene ought to file a protest with the state senate against these methods, couched In such language that there will be no possibility of misunderstanding iu meaning and show that body of men that we do not propose to be robbed of our oboioe tor senator by a gang of political highwaymen. Wm. Ashley, Jr., of Kathdrum, ia slated for receiver of the Coeur d' Alene laud ofilcoe aud ia reported to iiave the backing of th* machine. That is equal to au appoinuueut.
