Stftï J he Price 0f The : Ä kln S Cream Of Tar ) 0 (] i! ert p A nd Twice As And : THE REPUBLICAN RAILROAD COMMISSION BILL It may interest some of our readers to know what became of the pro posed Railroad Commission in this state. Our readers will remember that the Governor of this state, in his message to the last Legislature, recommended that the Legislature pass a bill giving the state of Idaho three railroad commis sioners, the purpose of the measure being to appoint or elect railroad commis sioners with power to determine the cost and maintenance of railroads within the State of Idaho, and to fix freight rates accordingly. Washington, Wiscon sin, Iowa, Michigan. New tyrk, and, in fact every state in the Union not unoer control of the railroad! have such a commission. A little history of the fate of the measure in the last legislature will be interesting just as this time. Speaker Hunt of Bannock county, a close friend of Chairman Brady, promised to appoint a committee on railroads who would report a railroad com mission bill favorably. Every member of the committee, except Representa tive Joe Jones of Latah, reported that the RAILROAD COMMISSION BILL DO NOT PASS. Brady will have difficulty in removing the suspicion that he was instrumental in the defeat of that bill. now Does this not support our allegation that Brady is the "political representative of the Oregon Short Line railroad?" And then consider this: The Oregon Short Line pays taxes a valuation in Idaho of $13,500 per mile of main track, while their bonded valuation is $150,000 per mile. And the people are bled for freight and pas senger rates sufficient to pay interest and dividends on this outrageous bonded valuation. Every effort for relief has rr^t opposition from the same source, a source that is behind the nomination of J. H. Brady for governor of Idaho. No one desires to impose unjust restrictions on the railroads of Idaho. The best interest of Idaho demands that our railroads make a reasonable profit. But they have no right to demand and collect tribute, to compel our railroads to charge Only enough to compensate them on the actual cost and maintenance? Can Idaho, then, afford to elect Brady governor? Should the people not demand the nomination of a man whose past record is a positive guarantee that, if elected, he will give the people a square deal? - ID Would it not be fair The Republican Repudiators Must Not Continue To Control. The News last week supplied the incontrovertable facts regarding the last 1 republican platform, showing how a republican legislature brazenly repudiated a republican platform. We insist that every plank of a party platform is bind ing, and hold that whosoever was responsible for the failure of the republican party to fulfil its pledges is guilty of a degree of perfidy deserving the severçst condemnation. Men responsible for the failure of the republican party to keep faith with the people of the state must not insist on continuing at the head of the organization, noi demand that traitors write the next republican platform and name the next state ticket. There were republicans who insisted on ful filling every pledge and who tried to carry out every promise. But these "in surgents" were powerless against the political machine built "up under the leadership of James H. Bradv, backed by the Oregon Short Line and supported by a solid Mormon vote. If you doubt this go read the record. Check up the ( vote on every republican platform measure, and see where the men now de- 1 raanding the nomination of Mr. Brady for governor stood. The record is the j most disgraceful in all the political-history of our state. Its a shame! Think! then of the determined effort of these same republican repudiators to continue j in control! It is an example of shameful effrontery, nerve and cussedness 1 perhaps never before surpassed. Should it not arouse every republican of the state to a sense of duty? §hould we not wake up and drive forever from the i politics of Idaho every man whose record is not clear? Republicanism, as to- ' day interpreted in Idaho, is a cess-pool of rot, and unless the people assert their right defeat in November is certain. The nomination of Mr. Brady will mean nothing short of an endorsement of a disgraceful record, and his election prove that the republicans of Idaho believe in rewarding treachery and pay a premium for rascality. ; A Troy Boy. Troy is always glad to find her boys and girls going ahead, as many of them do. In the Lewiston Normal Miss Maude Sullivan has made a great record as a debater, and now comes word from Clarkston that Roy Stinson, who moved away from Troy two years ago, is developing into one of the best debaters in the Clarkston high school. He was a member of the team that de feated the Asotin team in Asotin. Fri day evening, the question being: Re solved, That temperance movements in the past in the United States have done as much harm as good." Clarks ton had the negative. Probably the biggest religious revival ever held in this section closed Sunday evening at Odd Fellows hall, when Evangelist Newberry, of Walla Walla, concluded the services. Thirty-five additions were added to the church, The meetings were well attended and the interest throughout excellent. Big Meeting. Need A New Church. As suggested by the News Troy ought to have a better Methodist church. The present structure is a disgrace to our town, and far too small to accommodate the church needs at this place. Good churches are a good advertisement to any town, and the fact that there are too many good Methodists in Troy to pack into the present quarters is evidence of the moral growth of the community. A town is usually known by its churches and public schools more than any other one thing, and in looking for locations to bring up children these things usually count. I A Valuable Lesson.

The Tennessee Jub-1 ilee Singers, eight in number, will be | in Troy March 5 for one night. This j company has never been West, and is j now making their first tour, under the Inter-State Lyceum Bureau of Portland. ! They had an open night between Mos cow and Lewiston which is the only j reason Troy was able to get them, j Troy has given the Jubilee Singers un- ; den Williams a big house three times | and this fact induced the management j of the Tennessee company to come ; here. Hoist Old Glory. The News would like to see an American flag float from the top of the Troy public school building. A suit able staff could be provided at little cost, and a flag would not bankrupt, the district. The citizens ought to see that one is provided. The News will start this fund by pledging support and some financial aid. Let us have the flag. Teacher's Examination. The regular quarterly teachers' ex amination will be held in Moscow at the court house on Feb. 28, 29 and Examinations will be given in subjects required by all grades of county ceitificates. Never let an opportunity slip to say a good word for Troy, town, full of good people, surrounded by a good country, and there is no rea why any Troyite should be back ward in telling people about it.

He says; "After taking less than three bottles of Electric Hitters, I feel like one rising from the grave.
