That the arrangement by which Adrian

1917, by which the salary of one official

One of the most scathing letters writ
ten by a democrat against the democratic
candidate for congress in this district,
who is opposing Burton L. French, of
Moscow, is that written by Frank liar
ris, a pioneer attorney and leading demo
crat of Weiser, the home of I. 1. Purcell,
nonpartizan candidate for congress on
the democratic ticket. From the Weiser
American, a real newspaper, printed in
Mr. Purcell's home town, we take the
following which should be read by every
voter of Latah county. The article foi

j "A number of local democrats with a
: history for being democrats recently re
ceived letters from the democratic con
gressional committee asking them to
form a Purcell club in Weiser. So far as
known they all respectfully declined
stating their reasons. Some of these rea
sons are quite plainly stated in a letter
written to the chairman of the commit
tee by Frank Harris, Weiser's well
known citizen and pioneer attorney. The
letter follows ;
"Hon. Scott Ferris,
■'Washington, D. C.
"Dear Sir ; I, have your surprising
request of the 25th of last month, by
which I am requested to assist in the

I was a defeated republican candidate for
state senator. He was up to two weeks
prior to his nomination as a democratic
candidate, a member of the republican

the platform the republican candidates of

"He is a sorehead, because of his de
feat above mentioned, and thinking that
he saw a chance to get into office by
following that socialist, Townley. and
securing a nomination through fraud, he
for the time quit his old alliance and is
now styling himself a 'Wilson democrat.'

you have another guess coming. The
first one you missed a mile when you
guessed that I or any other loyal friend
of the President and our great party
would be instrumental in electing a man
to congress whose nomination was se
cured through fraud.
"This man Purcell is a follower of
Townley, who is no better friend to our
great government than is Lenine or
T rotsky to poor distracted Russia.
Townley is a socialist, a supporter of
the principles expressed in the last plat
form of his party, which, as you know,
is treason, pure and simple. Arthur
LeSeuer, an associate and friend of
Debs and Haywood, is the secretary of
the non-partisan league, and if the lead

The Latah County Farm Bureau has
completed the fai m labor survey of
this county which was started some
time ago. O. S. Fletcher, county ag
ricultural agent, has just finished tab
ulating the results of the survey.
Practically every community in the
county has been covered- However,
not all farms are included. This is
due either to the fact that the local
committeemen of the farm bureau did
not get time to call on every farmer
in their districts, or to the farmers
not being at home when the commit
teemen called. The survey covered
675 farms, with a total of 154,325
acres. Of this land, 120,918 acres
are in cultivation.
Crop Situation.
The total acreage in crops this
year was 103,325 acres. Of this land,
12,831 acres were in alfalfa, timothy,
or other similar crop cut for hay.
Next year it is expected that 99,203

the two offices for the next two years."
To the foregoing statement we give
our full approval and pledge ourselves

their unprincipled propaganda in this,
the saddest hour of our nation's life,
they would not associate with this arch
traitor for a second,
"I have lived in Idaho for nearly forty
years and know the history of Haywood
and his bloody gang. I knew the late
Governor Steunenberg, whom Hay
wood's organization murdered, and know
that there was a miscarriage of justice
when this demon was not hanged for
the crime when he was tried here a few
years ago.
Now comes the pitiable spectacle, here
in Idaho, where the blood of Governor
Steunenberg was spilled, of an organiza
tion created and officered by the friends
and apologists of his*murderers, stealing
the machinery of the party of our great
president, setting up candidates, not
democrats, and asking the support of
decent people. These are the facts and
damned be the man or men who will
dispute them.
"I am now growing old, and .as the
years creep on f become the more soli
eitons for our country's good, and cast
my vote accordingly, hence my reason
for declining your astounding proposi
tion. .Why is it that you say nothing
about the organization of a 'Moore for
Senator Club?' Hon. Frank Moore, of
Moscow, is the regular democratic can
didate for senator against W. E. Borah,
who has the indorcement of the Idaho
Bolshevik! who manipulated the nomina
tion of the man Purcell, of whom you
speak. All the followers of Townley,
LeSeuer & Co., including Purcell and
his fellow Bolsheviki candidates are
going to support Borah and knife the
patriotic democratic Moore. A fine com
himUion to contemplate is this.

republican, and Moore, democrat, for
senators, and French for representative.

Labor Situation.
On the farms covered by the survey
there are 570 able-bodied men of
draft age, and 286 able-bodied men or
boys over sixteen years of age, and
not of draft age. This gives a total
of 866 able-bodied men and boys liv
ing on these farms. The survey shows
that a total of 861 men are ordinarily
used the year around- on these farms,
and that 924 year around men are
necessary to keep the farms up to
maximum production. These figures
show that there is a shortage of year
around men at present. These figures
do not consider the extra men needed
for the planting and harvesting sea
sons. The number of these extra men
that are needed is as follows: 23 dur
ing March, 193 during April, 171 dur
ing May, 139 during June, 410 during
July, 808 during August, 533 during
September, 74 during October, and a
few during November.

this reason. A few farms reported
a surplus of farm help, and some men
stated that they could work for their
neighbors part of the year. Consider
ing the large number of extra men
that are needed during the busy sea
sons, the labor outlook in Latah coun
ty is not very encouraging.
