\ TROY, LATAH COUNTY, IDAHO, MARCH 21 , 1908. NO. 39 VOL. j N eW School House. TU nnestion Of a new school house to the people of this district L; I P £r of the directors was held !£? atVhicb time it was decided F .I matter of voting bonds to <•«.»» ' L Twelve thousand dollars in cent bonds will be voted, the " ■ , tn use only such part as will be ,or a aeW building , Th !

Such a building ! Id settle the school question in IT. fa, years to come. The reasons i, new school house in this district already been carefully revieweo These same rea have in these columns. 1 hold good today. We may post ée it but it would be a blind man V could not see that the time for a building is not far off. The pres w building will, one of these windy tes, fall in a heap and compel action. This' is not an exaggeration. If you think so, go to the school any day and M the old shack tremble and sway Lith the ringing of a bell of small di Lisions. Go when the wind blows Ud leel it sway and hear it creak. Li then stand off and look at it. Go Ithere in the winter time and see the Mien shiver or sweat as they are tear or far from the stove. Feel the bind as it whistles through the walls, L if you want a cold, sit in the Efts of air everywhere within the Lis, And then think of the children, Eut children, who are compelled to at Htsnd this school, and that a decent Htodera building can be built at this Kmewith so little burden on any citi Hcd of the district. It is hard to Buiderstand how there can be even one Hrho would vote against the bonds. Hfatainly no citizen of Troy will cast a Hicgative vote. And there is no reason any farmer should not favor the Hoove. Will it not make farm lands Hiear Troy more valuable? Will not Hoen, looking fcr homes, not prefer to Hocste near a town with good school ^■utilities? Did any man ever hear of a ^■ood school house being a drawback or detriment to any community? Never! Hhd District 31 will make a serious sti K' nistake if the bonds are voted down a re-.k from tomorrow. ■ An Old Relic.

' th MACHINES ARE UNNECESSARY The Orofino Tribune says: When it comes to a choice between Boss Brady and Boss Dubois, we wonder where the republican editors, who grow black in the face when a mention of the former is made, are going to get off." Replying to the above, the North Idaho Review believes that when it comes to a choice between the two, with the republican principles at stake that Boss Brady is by far the most preferable of the but because he is far more preferable than Dubois is no reason why the people of the Republican party should not turn down a political boss,—one who is known to dominate legislatures and who has succeeded to build up a machine that practically takes the power of making nominations out of the hands of the says: "Now the Review two, people and formulates the state ticket two and even four years in advance,— and once more assume control of the party principles and the power of making their own nominations. It is time for the people to destroy the working power ot the machine by standing up with backbone enough to demand personal rights—their rights to have a voice in the naming of a state ticket, and not alone to demand that right but to exercise it by nominating a man for governor of Idaho, who is free from political trickery and corruption—one who is willing that the people should name their nominee without the dictation of any party j Boss or machine. ' "We realize that under our present imperfect system of making nomina- j tions it is hard for the people to have any voice in the naming of candidates as | that power is delegated to a few men who are usually subservient more or less j to the dictates of a political boss or machine. But as long as wë have no way j of making direct nomination we must make the best of it by making strenuous i efforts to delegate this power into the hands of men who have back bone enough to stand up free and independent and vote for what they believe will meet with the approval of the people, without being bound by the majority I vote of a delegation or caucus. If the people love independent action; if they desire to be freed from political bosses, they can not afford to nominate ! Brady for governor, as Brady is already nominated by the machine, and to have the delegates ratify his nomination means only a ratification of the acts of the machines, patting the bosses on the backs and saying to them by our acts to | continue on in their usurpation of the people's power as they love that kind of : Never, until the people awake and assert their independence, will ! a system. they be able to see corruption banished out of political parties. Troy Has Fine Instructor. "One of the best teachers we ever had in the Moscow schools," said a prominent citizen of the county seat to , the Troy News editor last Saturday, Miss Hannah Johnson, now principal of the Troy schools. She had charge of the eighth grade work, and gave the most excellent satisfaction. As a teacher she has no superior in eighth grade work, and there is no doubt is capable of handling any department of the public school, great deal when Miss Johnson left, and Troy is to be congratulated." Those who have watched the work of Miss Johnson in the Troy schools can appreciate the well merited compli rrient, true in every sense of the word. bright, energetic, tactful. She knows how to handle the children and understands how to inter est them in their work. Not only does Miss Johnson know things, but pos sesses that rare ability of imparting that knowledge to others. She is a teacher. She is qualified to fill a position no less important than that of state superin tendent of public instruction, and would do so with credit to the state. As a county superintendent of schools she would, her frends insist, be hard to She is a Latah county girl, her was Moscow lost a She is an educato beat. home being southwest of Moscow a mile and a half. a Clears Steunenberg.

The attendance was large, there being about fifty teams in the procession. Demand for Horticulturists. E. E Gustin a senior in the Wash-1 ington State college at Pullman was in Troy Saturday visiting his sister, Mrs. W. W. Park, and incidentally gather ing specimens for plant breeding. Mr. Gustin is a member of the class in horticulture, and says that the demand for specialists in that line is so great that every one of the graduating class has been offered from two to a dozen jobs. He has accepted a position at Boyd, Washington, with the British Columbia Copper company, to begin as soon as the school closes. In his opinion, a few more years will see eastern Washington and northern Idaho devoting more attention to fruit than wheat. No Danger of Getting Lost In following a well-worn trail when in Troy.
