MUS T DEFEAT THE LEAGUE.
From what you know of the
partizan league doctrine today, Mr, Tax
payer, how would you like to turn the
state government over to the nonparti
zans? What figure do you think our
glorious commonwealth would cut during
the balance of the war, with Bolshevists
and I. W. W. in control? Haven't you
read both sides of the question eno igh
by this time to know where safety lies?
Do we want the state government moved
to St. Paul? Do we want A. C. Town
ley for our kaiser, LeSeuer for our prime
minister, McKaig for our Luclendorf,
Scholtz for our Hindenburg and all the
seditionists, agitators, propagandists,
malcontents and pro-Germans as the im
perial army to keep us in line? If we
do let's line qp like sheep on election day
and vote the way the czar wants us to.
A .vote for Samuels' is a vote for
TownlCy and all. that Town ley stands
for. Want it? If Townley and his
perial cabinet are as loyal as they claim
they are, why do they permit their agknts
to preach the kind of stuff that gets the
agents and organizers arrested? Those
are questions that should be answered
fully to. the satisfaction of every \jter
before November 5. None should go
to the polls with a mind clouded by
doubt. There are but two classes of peo
ple in America today—those who • are
loyal and those who are not. The great
majority of farmers belonging to the
nonpartizan league are loyal to the core ;
but what have they to say about how
the league and its activities are con
ducted? Not a word. All that they are
permitted to do is to put up the money,
and to this day not one of them can tell
where his money goes or what is done'
with it.—Deary Press'.

THE BEST WAY TO SETTLE IT.
The council of defense of Latah
county, Idaho, has summoned several
of its citizens to appear and make a
statement as to whether their financial
ability to buy Liberty bonds is as great
as their neighbors think it is. Like other
citizens of this community, these men
wère told that they were expected to
make a subscription of a certain size
to the fourth Liberty loan, and failed to
come up to expectations. The council
of defense intends to hold a hearing to
thresh it out.
Nearly every community has in its
Liberty loan campaigns had instances of
men whose subscriptions were less than
many people felt they should have "been.
Sometimes the loan committees were
right. Sometimes it has been shown
that the individuals were not as wealthy
as had been reported and were really
doing for the loan all they were able.
In either case a hearing, soberly con
ducted by a recognized official body, is
the right sort of procedure. It gives the
man whose conduct has been questioned
a fair chance to explain his circum
stances and to settle his status in his
town. It does away with the mob spirit
and puts the whole business on a digni

It was the finest kind of spirit that
prompted the Elks of Moscow to give
the free use of their magnificent club
rooms to the convalescent soldiers where
they can recuperate after their ' illness.
It is the spirit of the ""benevolent and

organization is so well known. It is the
spirit of brotherly love and tenderness.
Probably nothing that has been done by
the grand people of Moscow for the
"strangers that- arc within dur gates"
has been more highly appreciated than
this act. On behalf of President Lind

News from Khaki Boys
Chase W. Raney, well known in
Moscow, writes to the A. K. E. fra
ternity, here, a very interesting let
ter telling of his experience in France.
The letter follows:
"I just finished a 74-day vigil at
the front. Our division took part in
the second battle of the Marne. We
stopped the Germans when they at
tempted to push on July 16 and then
on July 20 started an offensive of
our own and drove Jerry clear back
to the Aisne, when we were relieved.

"My company was the first of Am
erican engineers to bridge the Marne
river. We worked 36 hours without
food or rest on a bridge for heavy
there so I suppose those pictures have
been shown in the States by this time.
We also put a number of bridges
across the Vesle near Fismes under
heavy fire. We certainly have some
wonderful bayonet men among the
doughboys, almost every dead Boche

"I passed by Quentin Roosevelt's
grave a while back. We were within
a few miles of him when he fell. We
saw a good mähy air battles, but of
course it is hard to tell whether or
not we saw him fall. We were more
interested in the Jerrys that fell. Two
or three weeks ago I was within a
few hundred yards of a Jerry when a
Frenchman brought him down,
can't write the most exciting and in
teresting things, but all of this has
been-in the papers so it will pass the
censor all right.
"We have great times here trying
to talk to the French soldiers. We
worked with a company of French
men at first under a French major.
It was not long before we could make
each other understand most things,
such as wine, tobacco, etc. The French
had the wine and we had the tobacco,
so we got along pretty well. Every
thing we need is issued to us—soap,
tobacco, razors, and sometimes candy.
It is raining pretty hard and my 'pup
tent' is beginning to leak so I guess
had better close. I would like to
hear from some of you.

To the Voters and Tax Payers of
One of the most important duties
of the citizens of Latah county
ing just been performed in raising its
quota of the Fourth Liberty Loan,
we are certainly all grateful. But
there are other duties which must be
met by the people of the county.
As chairman of the Republican or
ganization of Latah county I appeal
you one and all before casting your
ballot on November 5th, 1918, that
you study the Republican ticket care
fully and give it due consideration.
I point with pride to the conduct
of Latah county, its economical hand
ling by our county officials, and call
your attention to the fact that it is
the best governed county in the state.
The following statement from Byron
Defenbach & Sons, public accountants,
who have audited practically every
county in Northern Idaho, stands as
a strong testimonial to the officials
now directly responsible for handling
the finances of Latah county, and
which statement appears in the Poca
tello Tribune under date of October
"Comparing the various counties of
the state by sections from an account
ant's standpoint, the broad general
statement is made that the Northern
counties of Idaho are far superior to
those of the South, and Latah county
is pronounced to be the best governed
county in Idaho."
The governing power of Latah ♦
county has been in the hands of Re
publican officials for several years
last past, and our candidates nominat
ed at the primary are known by all
be loyal citizens and thoroughly
capable to handle the affairs of this
county if elected.
Again asking your loyal support
and favorable consideration, I am,
