Following the example of his
conferee Dubois, Senator Heitfeld
has announced to his party that be
is now a democrat and in the future
will affiliate with that party. He
asks that Chairman Andrews call
the state populist committee to
gether and make a formal dissolu
tion of the populist party of Idaho.
But Chairman Andrews demurs to
the proposition and evidently ad
heres to the ideas held by Ex Sen
ator Allen of Nebraska and other
populist leaders that though fusion
may be dead the populist party is
yet very much alive and will main
tain its organization.
Senator Heitfeld is at great
varience with other populist lead
ears upon the question of party
loyalty. In his letter to Chairman
Andrews he says: "Since both
the democratic and peoples parties
are now striving for the same pur
poses I am unable to see why we
should keep up separate organiza
Senator Allen's view set out in
a recent interview are quite in con
trast with this. He says: "There
is a well defined line of demarca
tion between the two parties,
which will not permit them to be
brought together. The faith of
the populists is too clear and strong
and well founded to allow them to
be absorbed by any other organiza
tion. The democratic and popu
list parties do not agree upon
many essential points of political
Senator Allen is well sustained
in his views by other populists of
national influence and it is a well
fixed conviction with these leaders
that if the democrats make any de
parture from the radical positions
they now hold in the concessions
made to populism in the Chicago
and Kansas City platforms that
the populists party will stand otit
bold» y for the ancient tenets of
their faith. In this regard Senator
Allen says: "If the democrats
should return to Clevelandism,
there will doubtless be three tickets
in the field in 1904, for no populist
will accept Mr. Cleveland or any
one holding his political views as
a candidate for the presidency."
Chairman Andrews and other
state leaders of the populist party
are doubtless in touch with the na
tional leaders and hence not in
sympathy with the attitude of
Senator Heitfeld in his abandon
ment of the populist party. The
reason for Senator Heitfelds posi
tion is easily found. He and Sena
tor Dubois planned in the cam
paign of 1900 to make fusion sub
serve their ambition to land in the
senate and from that commanding
position take the leadership of the
reorganized democracy of Idaho,
relying on the fact that their p*r
sonal following could be switched
into the democratic lines when the
time comes. But in the present
attitude of Chairman Andrews we
reckon that Senator Heitfeld has
made a mistake. Populism will
maintain Us integrity in state and
national organizations and will not
be stampeded to subserve the in
terests of personal political ambi
The message of President Roose
velt to the national legislative body
is a comprehensive one. Upon all
questions of vital importance to
the well being of our national wel
fare his statements are so clear
that no room for doubt or un
certainty is left. Especially will
the west feel kindly to. his stand
upon the irrigation of arid lands;
rural mail delivery; Chinese ex
clusion and the Nicaragau canal.
The trust question is dwelt upon
at greater length than all other
questions dealt with in the docu
ment. Upon the tariff he favors
reciprocal feature, and abhors tink
ering. He indorses the present
gold standard and favors safe
guards against panics or com
mercial crisis. He is firm in the
belief that the Monroe doctrine
should be maintained. He wants
a new cabinet office created—the
new official to be styled Secretary
Upon the labor question the
president is the first to make $0
certain and clear to congress the
demands that organized labor has
worked for for several years. He
recommends the re-enactment of
the Chinese exclusion law, and
the enforcement of the eight hour
law on all government work, even
on the sub-contracts and last he
recommends that the foul blight
•upon American labor—-womem
and children working at night —
be no longer a part of American
The Republican meeting held at
Boise this week, for the purpose of
recommet ding a successor to Sena
tor Shoup, as a member of the Re
publican National Committee, was
altogether a sore disappointment.
There was no slaughter of
antiquated war horses to make a
Young Republican holiday. The
Jo Jos were not immolated on the
altar of nobler aspirations and
higher ideals; the guard was not
knocked down and kicked out.
On the other hand, the "new ele
ment" was not squashed; the
Young Captains were'not deplumed
in short, nothing was done
which was hopefully expected and
confidently predicted. The whole
business was sadly disappointing
and pitifully distressing to the en
tire Democratic parly.—Caldwell
D. W. Stanrod, of Pocatello, was
unanimously chosen as national
committeeman for the Republicans
in Idaho, by a conference, of the
state committee, chairman of the
county committees and mem
ber* to the last national conven
tion, held at Boise on No
vember 25. The selection of Judge
Stanrod was a happy and wise
solution of a problem, that the
wise prophets feared could not be
solved. The Judge is a splendid
selection and all may rest assured
that the interests of the party will
be wisely and carefully attended
The selection of Judge Stanrod
as National Committeeman by the
Republicans of Idaho is a disap
pointment to no one but the oppo
sition. The opposition thought
they saw a big row in sight, but
have been taught a new lesson on
the high purpose and aims of Re
publicanism. The Boise confer
ence strengthened the party. Be
lieving that the election of Judge
Stanrod was identical with the
best interests of the party in Koot
enai, the delegation from this
county cast their vote- for him,
but by so doing they do not in any
way intend to discredit the great
worth to the party of any oftheother
distinguished names that came up
for consideration.—Kootenai Her

highest appreciation of his distinguished

our appreciation of his unselfish devotion
to the interests of this young State, and
