Republican Central Committee of Latah County
Any U. S. Citizen having resided in the State six months and the County 30 day* is entitled to vote
, WALLACE, Idaho, Oct. 24.—There
Is but one political issue in Shoshone
county, and that isn't an issue. It is
rather an agreement, with each side seek
ing to do the most toward achieving i
common end. That end is the def
of H. F. Samuels, nonpartisan candidate
for governor.
Normally the banner democratic coun
ty of the state, it will this year give
D. W. Davis, republican candidate for
governor, a majority of 3,000 to 4,000.
This is such an important feature that
it deserves to be mentioned even before
the fact that here in the county where
Samuels lived and did business for 20
years it was impossible today to find
among the most representative men a
single person who would say a good
word for Samuels, or who knew of a
man who would say a good word for
him among citizens of good standing.
' Pivot of Northern Counties.
Shoshone county becomes the pivot of
the 10 northern counties composing this
congressional district. Republicans have
the
cat
over
carefully that the republican ticket will
sweep all the 10 northern counties ex
cept Lewis and Bonner, The last men
tioned is the home of Samuels, and fig
ures there show the democrats and imh
partizans didn't get a majority of the
votes cast in the.,pmafep<e«. In Kootenai
county there is a considerable farmer
and labor vote and the nonpartizan ticket
rfwuld get good support there if any
where. In Boundary county, where Sam
uels has made a play for the farmer vote
kÿ '■promising to drain the Kootenai val
ley, there is a strong-, republican major
ity. • In Benewah county there is a strong
" E. W. W. and labor clement, but the
■' >, wote is light. The general conclusion
Is, therefore, that the Shoshone major
ity will offset any nonpartizan majority
•liât may be secured in the other four
counties.
Never was there a time before when
•II political parties and social elements
Itave so agreed on a situation as the de
feat of Samuels. Mine owners, bankers,
merchants, professional men and labor
feg men are united on this one purpose
with a degree of intensity that makes it
fcnpossible to discuss the situation calmly.
Partizan Feeling Unusually Strong.
When such a situation arises there is
■aturally a query as to the reason.
Usually the partizan feeling here has
keen strong. Usually, too, when the em
ploying and business Clement favor a
proposition it is not likely the laboring
men agree to it. They do in this case.
Why?
The answers to (lus question are not
•rintable. Such terms are applied to
Vlr. Samuels that they would only be
J ustified in public print after a fair and (
mpartial hearing had been had in a J
court of justice. Mr. Samuels lived in
Shoshone county more than 20 years and
there with a as a year,

The Moscow State Bank
!
!
Moscow, Idaho.
He was successively a public official, a
banker and a mine owner. Public odium
attaches, according to his old neighbors,
as the result of his record along each
of these lines. In other words, the rec
ord he made here brings about a solid
stand against him in Shoshone county,
where political, business and personal
rivalry is so strong as to be lurid.
Aside from the business and political
record of Samuels there is the personal
side. He is considered a joke, a man of
no stable convictions, but who swings
from side to side, taking up each chimer
ical will-'o-the-wisp that comes along.
Samuels himself boasts that he has a
sense of perception that leads his foot
steps. His old neighbors here say he
never does anything without casting his
horoscope. He reads his fate in the
stars and the latest thing they told him
to do is join the' nonpartizan league.
Affronts Offered Samuels.
Numerous stori es a re told of affronts
offered Samuels on his last visit to Wal
lace. On one occasion he went into a
wm
valuable customer and was ordered out.
At another time he offered to shake
bands with one of the most prominent
democrats in the city and was roundly
rebuked. Just the other night a large
poster with the pictures of Samuels and
the president was plastered over in the
night time.
Samuels was prosecuting attorney of
Shoshone county during the great labor
riots and didn't prosecute. He was con
nected with the Wallace National bank,
which later was reorganized. He sold
out the Success^ mine at a lucky time,
say prominent mining men, else he would
not have been fortunate.
All the vote there will be for Samuels
in Wallace will come from a small set
tlement of Swedish and Finnish people,
who have strong socialist leanings, ac
cording to the best informed men here.
He will get some votes at Kingston,
Enaville, Mullan and Pine Creek, where
there are Swedes and Finns among the
loggers and small ranchers.
Fed Second Choice Votes.
In the recent primaries there were
2238 first choice votes cast for all the
candidates for governor. Of this num
ber Samuels got 303. To show that
there are few who tolerate him at all,
there were just 22 second choice votes
for him. It shows there is no compro
mise. _ i - !"'*
The democratic first choice vote for
the three candidates was 1422.
Van Sicklin received 951 democratic
votes and Frank Martin 168. These last
two will practically all go to D. W.
Davis. The Martin votes may not do
so to such an extent, but the Van SickVn
votes will. On the other hand, Davis
will get all the republican Votes,
Two years ago the combined vote for
governor was 7056. No one expects
E A.
but look for 5000, and of this number
it is claimed Samuels can not get more
than 1000.
Predict Davis' Election.
Republicans and democrats alike here
are predicting the election of Davis by
a majority of 20,000 to 25,000. He will
not get the labor vote in Shoshone and
will not get the majority of it in the
state, is the claim. Samuels is expected
to poll 20,000 bolshevik votes and 10,000
of the regular democrats. Against this
total of 30,000 it is figured Davis should
get 50,000 to 60,000 easily. Davis got
63,305 two years ago and Alexander
63,877. On this basis, allowing for a
lower vote because it is an off year, and
that many voters have left the state and
that some democrats will not vote at all,
it is estimated there should be at the
least 90,000 votes cast on account of the
warm state campaign. This margin is
so wide that no one here doubts Davis
will be elected.
Senator Borah is conceded elected by
all. It is the race between Senator John
F. Nugent and former Governor Frank
R. Gooding that rouses most attention
outside the governorship. By the same
process of reasoning it is claimed that
Gooding will be a safe winner, though
his margin is not so wide as that which
Davis will have.
The action of National Committeeman
Robert H. Elder in getting into the game
behalf of Nugent because of the I.
W. W. circular appealing for Nugent
only voters that Elder can influence,
they say, arc those belonging to the fed
eral crowd, and they were already lined
up for Nugent. What made Elder get
busy, they say, was word from the na
tional committee. It is not believed here
that those democrats who are sore be
cause the nonpartizans invaded the dem
ocratic primaries can be pacified by
Elder. The Hawley democrats will not
vote for Nugent, and there are many of
them. _ ■
The only question that remains is the
one dealing with the attitude of the
regular democrats. It is most emphat
ically asserted here that they will vote
for Davis most largely, and for the re
nainder of the republican ticket to a
less degree.—Arthur Wonsettler in The
Spokesman-Review.

WHO DOES PRESIDENT
WILSON ENDORSE?
i
B
Whenever you have a DEMOCRAT running for a State
office, and you feel that the President will be better supported by
his election, vote for him.
However, there is nothing in the President's appeal which
be construed as an endorsement of renegade Republicans, I. W.
W.'s, Anarchists, Pro-Germans, or Disloyalists. Neither is there
anything in the President's appeal which can be construed as an
endorsement of the Non-Partisan League candidates, fraudulently
running on the Democratic ticket.
The President is above this. Indeed, he appointed and reap
pointed Stephen J. Doyle as United States Marshal of North
Dakota, but this fall gave him leave of absence from his office and
an unqualified endorsement to run for Governor of North Dakota
against the candidate of the Non-Partisan League in that state.
The following are the Non-Partisan League candidates
ning under the false color of Democratic candidates :

These candidates are members of the Non-Partisan League
and were nominated as Non-Partisans, defeating loyal Democrats,
and are certainly not indorsed by the President. They are the
Bolsheviki who were hand-picked by Townley and LeSeuer, I. W.
W. s, and foisted upon the Democratic ticket through chicanery.
In view of the recent I. W. W. trial in Chicago and the great
expense to which President Wilson's administration went to prose
cute and bring to justice Haywood and 92 of his associates, proven
friends and political associates of Townley and LeSeuer, it will
hardly be argued that the President desires any of their ilk in any
office of trust in Idaho or any other state.

Remember that when H. F. Samuels was Prosecuting Attorney
of Shoshone County, he disqualified himself as prosecutor of the
men who dynamited the Bunker Hill Sullivan mill, saying they
were his friends and associates and the men who elected him to
office. Remember also that if he is elected Governor it will be the
same element who will be his friends and associates and the people
who elected him to office. Should his I. W. W. friends commit
outrages, what would he do?
