THE PRESIDENT TO DATE. •oodwin's Weekly: It is said that President Taft is disappointed at the result of the election in Canada; that is liable to be true. He was also dis appointed that the senate did not promptly ratify the arbitration treat ies, and now on the rostrum he is spending much time in justifying his vetoes of the tariff bill and the Ari zona and New Mexico statehood bills. He was pledged to tariff reduction and unless the bills as passed, would, by their action, having worked some vital wrong, on other clauses of the tariff, that is, unless if their indirect result would have done more harm than their direct effect, he had no legitimate rea son for vetoing the bill. We think, too. he made great mistake in vetoing the statehood bill; that his approval on the score that he did not feel jus tified in denying statehood to many thousand American citizens, though at the time he against the recall clause so far as judges were included would have been the wiser course. We would not say this now, except that we said it be fore his veto. The reciprocity and arbitration treaties were, so far as he was con cerned, purely administration meas ures. The people of the United States fight shy of such measures, unless the strong men of the nation, those sent to represent the people In congress, are called in, consulted, and approve of them. The President saw what came to President Roosevelt when he sought to magnify executive power. That is always distasteful to the people. Probably the most comspicu ous example was when President Cleveland bulldozed the silver meas ure through in the extraordinary ses sion of congress in 1893 and when, a little later, he tried to do the same thing with the Wilson tariff bill. The result was the repudiation of this Pres ident's party for seventeen years. It is for these things that we think that no President should be permitted, under our laws, to immediately suc ceed himself, for no matter how whol ly a President may think he has con secrated his life to his country, the hope of re-election will have its ef fect; he will want to signally disting uish himself in some way to draw to himself the people's approval and admiration; to hold for himself the center of the stage. He may person ally be unconscious of the fact, but it is the fact all the same. The case of Mr. Lincoln may be cited as one who sought a second term. If he did, it was but a subordinate de sire. When he was a second time elected, the end of the war was In shight. Any one who will read the democratic plat form of 1864 will see as clear as the sunbeams that, through the lines runs the confession that the confederacy is doomed, and we must still give it a peaceful death and at the same time Mr. Lin save the democratic party, coin saw this too, and he doubtless saw that when the finish came, then the country would be like the ship when in a great storm and the waves are at their height, the winds sudden ly cease and the ship loses its steerage It pitches and rolls in the way. tumbling seas and its deck Is more than half the time awash. It was for that if anything that he wished to be a second time tied to the wheel, until the ship could again be put upon her course. He might have done calmly what Andrew Johnson in bitterness and wrath and with a muddled brain tried in vain to accomplish. President Taft admits now that he has made some mistakes, which is good sign, and he has yet time to re cover all the ground that he has lost. Weiser Signal: One of the strongest men in the race for the republican nomination for governor is Hon. S. D. Taylor, our present efficient and level headed state auditor. He has made one of the very best officials the state has ever had, and in the turmoil created by the tax fiasco he proved himself a friend of the people by standing squarely against the Hawley plan until such time as the legisla ture could pave the way for full val Throughout the whole tax controversy he showed him self keenly alive to the interests of the people and had his advice been nation. ♦ ♦ taken much of the strife and -vil ef fects resulting from the tax experi ment might have been averted. The people will not soon forget this splen did champion of their interests and the other candidates will be led to realize they have an opponent for the nomin ation worthy their best efforts. That Mr. Taylor will prove a formidable candidate goes without saying among those at ail acquainted with the po litical situtkm. Boise Statesman; Dr. Cook has come to life again and is issuing bulletins from his office in New York repudiating the magazine "confession" and discovery worthless. As an ad vertising scheme no one will object to this new Cook stunt, but if he ex pects the public to take it seriously he will find himself in the position of the bragging hunter who did not know he was talking to the game warden. He had told how he had killed ever so much game in excess of the limit. "Do you know who I am?" inquired the recipient of this information. The hunter did not. "Well, I'm the game warden." Without a moment's hesitation the hunter re plied: "And you know who I am?" The warden did not. "Well, I'm the biggest liar in this state?" Rigby Star: The elmination of Judge Ailshie and Lieutenant Governor Sweetser's names from the gubernat orial contest, causes S. D. Taylor, present state auditor, to loom up and take on the appearance of a four-time winner. It is now quite generally conceded that the republican nominee for governor shall come from the north part of the state, and as Mr. Taylor comes from Bonner county, he fills the bill in that respect to a nicety. And then there are other factors in his favor, the most poteat of which is he is one of the common people. LAND SALES IN EIGHT COUNTIES There will be state land sales held in eight northern counties of Idaho during the month of October, ranging from the 14th until the 25th, thus giv ing parties who desire an opportunity to attend all of the saies.

Oct. 2.—The civil service commission will hold an examination for assistant forest ranger on October 23-24, 1911. The U. S. de partment of agriculture estimates that 400 eligibles will be needed during the field season of 1912. Assistant forest rangers are paid an entrance salary of $1,100.00 per annum. The examination will be held at National Forest headquarters in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon. South Da kota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. No examination will be held in Michi gan. The law requires that, when practic able, forest rangers must be qualified citizens of the state or territory in which the national forest on which they are appointed is situated. Since the list of local eligibles must be ex hausted before eligibles residing in other states can be appointed, the chance of citizens of outside states who go to national forest states and take the examination to secure an ap pointment is small. est rangers are thus described in "The Use Book." which contains the regula tions and instructions for the use of the national forests; "A ranger of any grade must be thoroughly sound and able-bodied, cap able- of enduring hardships and per forming severe labor under trying con ditions. He must be able to take care of himself and his horses in re gions remote from settlement and sup plies. He must be able to build trails and cabins, ride, pack, and deal tact fully with all classes of people. He must know something of land survey ing, land laws, mining, and the live stock business. "On some forests the ranger must be a specialist in one or more of these lines of work. Thorough familiarity with the region in which he seeks em ployment, including its geography and its forest and industrial conditions, is W A ' * m : >■ V; /AD .

DRIES WAIT UNTIL FEB RUARY IN ADA COUNTY BOISE, Oct. 2.—A local option elec tion will be asked for in Ada county, but not until February of next year. That information is contained in a statement issued by W. J. Herwig, state superintendent of the anti-sa loon league. He explains why the drys have decided to wait until the January meeting of the county com missioners to file their petition for the calling of the election, and he says that if the election is called at that time the drys are prepared to con centrate their entire Idaho forces on this county, and that they are con fident of winning the election. Mr. i usually demanded, although lack of this may be supplied by experience in similar regions. "The examinatiion of applicants is along the practical lines indicated above, and actual demonstration, by performance, is required. Invalids seeking light out-of-door employment need not apply. Experience, not book education, is sought, although ability to make simple maps and write intel ligent reports upon ordinary forestry business is essential. "For duty in some parts of Arizona and New Mexico the ranger must know enough Spanish to conduct forest busi ness with Mexicans. "Where saddle horses or pack horses are necessary in the performance of their duty, rangers are required to own and maintain them. The forest ser vice furnishes no personal or horse equipment. "Rangers execute the work of the national forests under the direction of supervisors. Their duties include patrol to prevent lire and trespass, es timating, surveying, and marking tim ber, the supervision of cutting and similar work. They issue minor per grazing business, investigate claims, report on applications, and report upon and arrest for violation of forestry laws and regulations." The examination will consist of questions regarding the use of the for est. supplemented by a field test to show the applicant's fitness to do the actual work of a ranger. Education and experience will be rated on the answers to the questions on these sub jects in the application form and on the applicant's use of English in the written test. Horses for the tests in riding and packing will be provided by the forest service. The examination is under the con trol of the civil service commission, and not of the forest service. Informa tion in detail regarding it, will be sent to anyone applying to the U. S. Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C. I Herw'ig's statement is as follows: ' What Mr, Herwig Says. "You can rest assured that the peo ple of Boise and Ada counties will have an opportunity to vote on the saloon question. Our petition contain ing 40 per cent will be filed January 8, 1912, without fail, and it is the part of February. plan to have the election the latter "We are calling this election with the intention of winning. Calling the election in February will give us ample time to thoroughly organize our forces. We are agreed that an election should be called, and that our chances to win are exceedingly good. There has been some difference' of opinion as to whether or not we are prepared for the fight now, and rather than take chances, we will defer the matter until the first of the year. It took us all summer to organize Can 3 'on county, and the tremendous result there was secured only by thoroughly organized work. Finishing our work in Bannock and Canyon counties on the sixth of this month does not give us sufficient time to prepare success fully for the election here if held in November. Will Fight for Blaine. "We are interested in the calling of a local option election in Blaine county, where petitions have been filed. The liquor interests have cir culated petitions in several of the dry counties, and it seems very evi dent that these petitions wil be filed. We must take care of these elections. The re-carrying of other elections will very materially help us in the Ada county fight. We are more than con fident that we can hold our own in every dry county in the state. With the Ada county election on our hands, our strength wuold be divided and the possibilities are that we might lose not only Ada county, but several oth er dry counties. "In taking up the fight in Ada coun ty, we realize the Importance of a united co-operation of all of our forces. At the present time, most of our workers are actively connected with the Men's Religious Forward movement, and are making great sac rifices of both time and money. The results of this movement wil be of immeasurable benefit to our cause. The success of this movement will hasten the complete doom of the saloon in the Capitol city. Plans War for the North. "I am leaving for the northern part of the state to organize our forces in Kootenai and Idaho counties. It is our understanding that elections are be ing called in these two counties. We are establishing headquarters at Coeur d'Alene for the five northern counties. Rev. Walter A. Hitchcock will be in charge and will be superin tendent of our work in northern Idaho. "With 20 of the 27 counties of Idaho dry at the present time, and the people well pleased with local op tion, as indicated in the Bannock and Canyon county elections, I predict that Idaho will be a dry state within another three years, and will be the first prohibition state west Rocky mountains." of the W.
