strength of the party. There seems
to be an air of uncertainty pervading
the minds of the delegates, accord
ing to iiress reports, and it is evi
dent that the democrats do not have
that harmonious get-to-gether feeling
that characterizes an organization
that has a "fighting chance,". Then
the need of standing together out
weighs the petty differences and all
unite in a common cause.
But it is evident that the spectre of
a republican president in the white
House has given place to a foregone
conclusion that the democratic party
is slated for the ditch, that causes
them to lose heart. For instance,
questions that were "passed up" at
Chicago are the subject of expended

consideration, pro and con, at Sau
Francisco and the triumph of one
element (for instance that control
led by Bryan, or Edwards) will mean
that the ocher will be dissatisfied.
While the republicans, with victory
iu sight, are unanimous as n.-ver be

coutest for "principles" and harmony
will be an unknown quantity
Unfortunately , the , democratic
voter is by nature a free lance and
the great independent vote by which
other elections have been carried, Is
uot especially secure for any party.
If the democrats row among them
selves the voter will go elsewhere.
And then many, especially independ
ents, like to be on the popular side.
For these reasons, it may be that
the selection of a candidate at San
Francisco, is really unimportant.

M RKTION
Idaho's spring of 1920 wool clip
was about 20 per cent below normal.
Wool growers have been disappoint
ed in the size of their clip and also
in the way the buyers are handling
(or declining to handle) their crop.
It may he necessary for the wool
men to ship the wool themselves to
eastern points, and grade and sort
it before it can be sold.

Tlie general run of socialists are
harmless people, and should not he
kiven so much attention in the press.
They are ridiculous for the reason
that while few of them are business
men, or employ many people, yet they
have elaborate plans to run our com
plex system of government, and they
would fill our high offices with "com
rades" who scorn the ordinary rules
°f business as being only the meth
ods of plutocracy.

Representatives recently that the war

Next John Adams a prominent farm

The republicans claim there is no
objection to Mr. Illingsworth only
that he "too much a Boise man."
At the same meeting of republicans

It is understood that J. D. Robert

He is the only nominee from this

POWDERED MILK FAC
TORY FOR MERIDIAN.
A meeting will be held at the new
office of the Boise Co-operative
creamery company in Boise to-day to
plan for the building of a milk pow
der factory at Meridian, to cost about
$(50,000. The manufacture of cheese
will be continued and both together
should prove to be highly beneficial
as a market for the dairy production
of this vicinity,
try is assuming such proportions here
that various outlets must be found
for the milk, and this is one way in
which ii can be handler.
The dairy industry probably brings
$4,000,000 into the hands of the
Boise valley farmer each year, and in
the Meridian section alone, not less
than $300,000 is paid out in cream
ery and milk checks.
"Many years will elapse before the
United States can fully assess the in
jury Woodrow Wilson has done to
his people and his time," declared
Representative C. Frank Reavis, of
Nebraska, before the adjournment o'
Congress. "But," Mr. Reavis added,
"the children of the future for whom
has been preserved the sovereignty
and independence of this country,will
hold in their hearts the
Lodge and Knox, and
Reed and Shields and
those other senators who have' offer
ed their political careers on the altar
of their conviction in the same high
regard that we hold Jefferson and
Hamilton and Webster and Sumner
and Lincoln."

There are some people who have
lived in these United ^States so long
they accept the advantages we have
as a matter of course. The only cure
for these people is for them to go
away for a few years and they will
return completely cured of any bol
shevik tendency.
MARKET FOR WOOL NOT

tlie
Charles Cairns, secretary of
Boise Valley Wool Pool, says
250,000 pounds of the 1920 clip (val
ued at $125,000) is still iu the ware

Payette, and other places,
pound lias been sold, and no one lias
offered to buy. Eastern buyers have
only taken the individual clips on
consignment, as no price has been es
tablished. although this Is a month
later than when practically all the
wool was sold last year. By July
15th, however. Mr. Cairns thinks
there will be a basis on which to set
tle'the price for the wool and then
By that time
the buvers will appear,
the probable market for the wool will
be estimated, and the amount to be
