JULIAETTA FARMER APPEALS TO VOTERS PIONEER RESIDENT OF THAT SECTION ASKS FARMERS TO BE NOT DECEIVED The following letter from William Cox, owner of Spring Brook Farm, near Juliaetta has been given to the press of Latah county: "Spring Brook Farm, Juliaetta, Idaho.—To My Fellow Voters in Latah County: I have been a resident of Latah county for many years and dur ing this time have been a farmer. All I possess in this world is repre sented in my farming operations. It seems to me that in the face of the exposures of the leadership of the nonpartizan league, the only safe and patriotic course for us farmers to pur sue is to vote against every candi date endorsed by the nonpartizan league. "If the program of Townley and Townleyism should be fastened upon this state, there is no question but that our interests as farmers would be very seriously affected. "If there are just causes for com plaint by the farming interests of Idaho, these cannot be met through the efforts of the nonpartizan league under the leadership of such men as Townley and Le Seuer, who have no identification with the state, whose propoganda is proven to be entirely a matter of personal advant age. as and I can see no course to pursue as a farmer and loyal citizen of this state except to assist in defeating the non partizan league candidates, who suc ceeded in having their names placed upon the democratic ticket.
