Are they not big men? Have they not been identified with big enterprises? Like* Brady, these men possess great business ability; and like Brady, they have never stood up for any measure of interest to the people, of how much money Brady has, nor how much he has been identified with this or that irrigation project that makes him a fit man for the important public posi tion of chief executive of Idaho. It is not a question This state wants a man, not a money bag. We want for governor not the political boss, big only in the sense that he is at the head of a powedul machine, nor the man, big, because of his readiness to serve the corporate interests of the state, and backed by them, not want a governor who represents the Oregon Short Line railroad, the beet sugar crowd or any other special interests. It wants a man. It wants a gov ernor whose record is beyond reproach, and who, between railroad tax dodgers and the public, will represent the people. We want a governor who favors equal taxation, and a man who will, when elected, demand and insist that every plank of the republican platform be carried out. Is Boss Brady this man? If so, where is the evidence? There is no record of anything Brady ever did in hehalf of any measure of interest to the people, opposed to special interests j of corporations. Brady did not favor a railroad commission bill. Brady did j not favor the anti-pass bill. Brady did not favor the anti-trust bill. Brady did not favor the primary election pledge of the republican party. Brady has never Idaho does uttered one word in condemnation of the republicans who repudiated the last republican platform, nor done or said a single thing that would show that he j did not then, and does not now, approve of the republican program of platform i repudiation and party perfidy. Brady has never represented the people. He \ has never identified himself with any measure of interest to the people- But he has stood for machine politics. He has been and is now a political boss. ! He has been the political representative of'the Oregon Short Line, and is still j their trusted friend. He may be nominated, but he will find a lot of republi cans who will never vote him into the governor's chair. I What Does Brady Stand For? What does Brady stand for? The question is particularly pertinent be- : cause Mr. Brady, backed by the republican machine of his own making, with sufficient support to insure his nomination, has announced that he will be the next republican candidate for governor of Idaho—which means that he will be the party nominee. Then, what does Mr. Brady stand for? We have read from top to bottom twice the full text of Mr. Brady's an nouncement, and note his assertion ''that the prevailing custom is for candi dates to make some statement regarding intentions," but fail to find an answer "Where does Brady stand?" Stand on what? On the vital The republican party, in the last ; But! to the query: questions in Idaho politics at this time. legislature, repudiated 54 per cent of its platform, pledged to the people. Mr. Brady fails to say whether he approves or condemns this record. Instead he contents himself with "my record as state chairman of the party during the past four years," giving that as sufficient reason for his nomination. The republican party of Idaho defeated a railroad commission bill, direct primary and anti-pass bills, and in the face of a solemn pledge to enact equal taxation legislation aud other much-needed measures, stubbornly refused. All this was done openly, brazenly and deliberately by that particular faction of the j republican party now demanding the nomination of Mr. Brady. Brady, chairman and party leader, failed in the time of trial, to go on record, he did was to use his influence to whip the "insurgents" into line in the name There was no question as to where Brady stood then, and He was then allied with the forces that as What of "harmony.' little question where he stands now. itood for repudiation, and he is still allied with the same gang, the political representative of the Oregon Short Line railroad and is still the choice of that corporation for governor of this state. The record is plain. It has been written during the time when Mr. Brady, more than any other man, directed the course and action of the republican party and shaped its policy in If that record is black, Mr. Brady cannot escape responsibility. If republican party of Idaho must go before the people with an admission of guilt and a plea for a second trial, if it has betiayed the? voters, if it has out raged justice, if it has lied and deceived those whose votes sent it to victory last election, Mr. Brady cannot escape his share of the condemnation. Does he think the people are dead to every sense of shame? Have the men and women of Idaho no self-respect? Are republican voters here of that class that reward treachery and pay for political trickery? Mr. Brady, from his epistle to the "dear people," appears to chink so. His nomination would tend to comfirm it, and his election prove it. He was then this state. the Business And Politics.
