The comparison in the cam paign between republican stability and democratic shiftiness is made every day more and more apparent The democratic paramount issue changes every time the candidate crosses a new state line. He pur sues each oue like phantom of lost hope. Governor Roosevelt forcibly states the republican posi tion in the following epigram which will pursue Mr. Bryan to the end of the campaign. He say? : "We are for the gold standard here, we are for the gold standard in Denver and in the Rocky mount ains. Fortunately our issues do not wear thin anywhere in the country." The policies of republicanism are not a question of geographical dis tribution. They stand for the good of the whole country. The pros|>erity that has come has been for the whole country. In answer ing the assertion that Bryan made that prosperity was due to provi dence and not the republican party Roosevelt has given tne people another epigram that will stick during the campaign. He said: 'I am perfectly willing to admit that there was fusion between providence and the republican party. The democracy has fused with about everything else, but It has never yet managed to make connections with providence." In the issues of the campaign the republicans stand for some thing definite and certain. Dem ocracy stands for a hetrogeneous mass united in a desperate strug gle for votes. To place Bryan in power would be to plunge the country into a season of doubt and uncertainty. Republicanism has proven itself and the conservative people of the nation have decided to let well enough alone. Ijewiston extends a hearty wel come to the visitors who throng its streets today, drawn here by the ties of fraternity and by kindly In terest in the exposition which to day opvns its gates to the public. There will be a united effort on the part of the citizens and the fair management to make this oc casion a notable one. To this end the fair management have spared no expense and they have the sup port of the entire body of the citi zens in desiring to make the fair week earnest for the future of the Interstate Fair and Racing Associ ation. This is the central point of a great productive country, rich in the fertility of its soil and the va riety and abundance of its re sources. This great section of the interior has never before had a fit ting representation of its resources made to the outside world. The intersate fair has this object in view; it has taken up the burden of being spokesman for the great country that lies locked in the val leys of the Snake and Clearwater rivers and of presenting to the public an exhibit ol its resources. It is an occasion for local pride and an exemplification of local en terprise. The whole country has contributed to the exhibit made and it is the earnest desire of the fair management and the citizens of Lewiston to have the whole country enjoy the results. to Bryan's silence In answering Roosevelt's questions is what might have been expected. He is in the enemy's country and his p easant smile is the thing least likely to offend the voter he hopes to win. He is past the point in the campaign where he can hope to win by presenting the real issues he represents. Any answer to the Roosevelt questions would place him in the position of assuming a dt finite stand on the issues. He is neither for gold nor for silver, for the consent of the governed or the success of the nation. He is for Bryan and must not tread on any one's corns If he hopes to win. Lewiston valley is on dress pa rade this week. The opening day is auspicious. The quality of our genial air and sunshine is as much a matter of local pride as our prize pigs and prize pumpkins. The exhibit in the exposition building is a fair representation of the Lew iston valley and the Clearwater country. Pioducts of the field, garden, orchard and vineyard are presented in quality and quantity to give ample proof of the wonder ful fertility of the soil and the abundance and variety of the pro duct. NOTICE The Star of Hope Aid Society of the the Christian Church will conduct a din ing hall during fair week for the benefit of the church. They have secured a good location and should he liberally patronized. Ernest McCullough, C. E., states that he is prepare«! now to take a few students in mathematics, surveying and mechanic al drawing. 13J-1 Subscribe for Thr Tki.i.kr. NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION. CommtHuJ HomeMeaJ.
