The attempt is made to impress the people with the belief that a state of war exists and that the ulterioi object of our contest is the acquisition of terri tory. The tact is this government has presumed upon the the theory that no state of war existed be tween this government and the Chinese empire. The rescue of our citizens from their peril in Pe kin became an emergency which we could not escape. Since ih.it object has been accomplished there is no cause for the continued cry of the alarmists. It Is true that China has transgressed and the Celestial government owes the United States an indemnity and an assurance of protection tor American subjects. Outside of these issues ol the present conflict the position of this government is plain to all observ ers. There is no further incentive for war with China. The ques tions of diplomacy are now para mount. necessary from this date is such as to enforce our demands for indem nity and protection in the future. within the next two years, w. may justly boast of our pre emi nence. N»z Perce county is the bauner county in the state for many considerations. The fertility of the soil and the variety of pro ducts, as well as the climate, make this county incomparably the ban ner commonw.alth of this grand state. These commercial facilities - - — ----- 1----- The only show of force - - i«tl,estate. Theassessment toil's The census returns give Nez letce comity over 6,000 voters. 1 Ills makes it the leading county iu the state. The assessment rolls show the biggest increase of prop erty in Nez Perce county. In view of the fact that we have within our borders nearlv 1 -w» ... rl> 3,000 Homesteads that will Ite patented withiu the next two vears «... scheme. are enhanced by the geographical location of Nez Perce county. Oar climatic advantages afford us a market for our farm, garden and orchard products; and the resources of the farms, mines, factories, and ranges are tributary to the Nez Perce commercial gateway at the natural junction of rivers and railroads at Lewiston, the metrop olis The democrats o! the various counties in the state are working a thin scheme to get two demo cratic tickets on the big official Australian ballot. The county convention is called and a partial ticket is nominated, leaving some vacancies down toward the coroner end of the ticket. Later a collec tion of democrats, who masquer ade under the silver republican role, put up the same ticket with the vaucaucies filled. This ticket is then ratified by the central com mittee of the democratic organiza tion. The effect is two tickets identical on the big blanket ballot* This is done in the hope of catch ing the all-important X of careless voters and perhaps the voters who still have a tender feeling for the once talismanic name of silver re publican. The votirs should lie fully informed aiout this bunco The question of apportionment of the legislative offices of the state is one of special interest to the voters of Nez Perce county. Our rapid growth has placed us in the category of sufferers from the present apportionment. This sub ject can not he reached through the county representatives alone. The state party managers should lie brought to a realization of the injustice we are suffering. The candidates for state offices should he asked to pledge themselves to give Nez Perce county a just ap portionment at the next meeting of the state legislature. The game of politics should be classed as athletic,because each act or is some times on both sides of the fence. NOTICE OF ENTRY OF TOWNSITK.
