Let the last republican platform speak lor itself. We leproduce herewith
five planks and defy the repudiators of the republican party to explain why
every one of these planks were either repudiated or ignored;
Economy in Administration of Affairs of State, find Equable Assesment of Prop
erty Favored.—We believe in the assessment of the oroperty of all citizens,
whether individual or corporate, at a fair valuation, so that the business of gov
ernment may be equalized.
State Anti-Trust Law Favored We are in favor of a comprehensive and ef
fective state anti-trùst law and we pledge our legislative and other candidates
to support the enactment of such a law.
Opposed to Free Transportation—We are opposed to the issuance of passes
by transportation companies to state and other officials and promise the enact
ment of legislation which will bring about such reform.
Primary Election Law Favored We favor the enactment of a primary elec
tion law in order that elections may be brought nearer the people.
Employer's Liability Law—We realize that the families of workingmen
not afforded deserved protection because of the absence of an employer's lia
bility law from the statutes of Idaho and we demand the enactment of such
a measure modeled after the national legislation on this subject.
The Railroad Commission Bill, recommended by the Governor, defeated by
republican legislators.
Out of the ten planks pledging legislative action five were either ignored
or repudiated, and when a bill, practically pledged by the republican platform,
and recommended by Governor Gooding, the railroad commission bill, came
up, it, too, was defeated by republican votes. Taken as a whole, the republi
can platform represents something like 54 per cent of repudition, and stand to
day as a monument of dishonor. The News does not believe that the republi
can voters of north Idaho will willingly forget their duty in the coming cam- j
paign. The Troy News will not spend time apologizing for republican repudi- j
alors, nor assist in whitewashing the dirty record of political leaders. We serve 1
notice, once and for all, that the republican party of Idaho must not only
go before the people with a platform satisfactory to the people, but must not
nominate a single repudiator. Brady must not be nominated.

Visited the Mine.
The management of the Inland Em
pire Copper Mine has been busy the j
past week taking prominent business j,
men of Troy to their property six miles j
east of town. The object is to show I
the people of Troy just what the corr.
has, and to put a stop to the I
knocker. The showing is so good
that nothing pleases the owners better
than to take the people out and let
them see for themselves,
tors were all well pleased.

Fine Work.
While in Moscow Saturday the News'
editor visited the Hotel Moscow and
the carpenters putting together the
beautiful interior finishings. We asked
Contractor Zeigler where the mill work
was turned out. He answered: "Troy,
and its as good as can be had in Spo
kane or any other place." Mr. Zeig
ler said the mill work from Troy always
fit, was always up to specification, and
that a factory like the one in Troy was
a credit to any town.
Trade in Troy.
A little investigation will convince
even the most skeptical that there is a
reason why there is a constantly in
creasing business at this point.
Troy merchants realize that people
will trade wherever they can get the
best goods for the least money and on
this theory have simply gone after the
business of this entire section and got
it. If you are not now trading in
Troy you had better get the habit. It
will pay. _
