That Ooeor d'Alene (>eople read the advertisements in the Daily Press end are doing their shopping at home was when were thronged with customers. Al len, the druggist, advert ised free j souvenirs to be given away and his | •lock was exhausted before the mid-j ■die of the afternoon. His was a con-! ^.cuous demonstration of the value of advertising. People naturally prefer to trade at home ami when they are able to se cure what they want ai fair prices very few will go to another town. The big trade enjoyed by the mer chants Saturday proved this. It also allowed that our merchants are en deavoring to satisfy the wants of the people and by keeping the money at home the prosperity of the entire community is promoted. Leave your Christmas money in Coeur d'Alene -and it wll return to you. fully demonstrat'd Saturday a the stores of the advertisers CONTEST CAS EH. Some of the republican newspapers of this county make a lame exouae for the Well contest, on the ground that the democrats are contesting the •lection of Judge Budge. There ia do reason in the contention, ea every contact should be deolded on It* merits. In the Weil oonteet there ia bo question about the election of McOlear by a safe majority and an ^attempt ia being made to defeat the •will of the people on alleged grounds of technical violations of the law in •Coeur d'Alene preolnet, no claim heiug made that every voter did not •Vote bis wishes. In the oase of Judge ■Budge, Senator Heyburn and other republican speakers stated that the oonstiluttonal provisions disfran chising all persons believing, teach ing, practicing or belonging to an or genixatlon that teaches polygamy were disfranchised without statutory laws, in other words the constitu tion oau be enforced without laws passed by the legislature. The dem -oerals believe that the republican speakers were right end wish to have the point passed upon by our supreme court. There ia a great priuoiple of lew involved and it is this point which should be settled. If the su prema court should uphold the con tention of the democrats, there is good reason why the matter should be decided. If he ia not a citlseu mini fied to vote and hold office all of Jbdge Budge's official acts would be ■ illegal. The quetftoiu is the most important J that lias ever heeu raised regarding the meantug of our state constitution and as the supreme court has pussed Ml it in another case, declaring that the Constitution is euforcable without other legislation, the peoplu w. n to know whether or not it will staud by its former decision. The question should be settled iiow for all time and will tie l( the judges now on the beuch can rise above party, and ren der an upiniou in conformity with formi r decisions of the court.
