HOOVER FOR PRESIDENT.
Some newspapers are trying to
start a boom for Herbert Hoover,
head of the food administration, for
president. It is not generally known
■whether Mr. Hoover is a democrat or
republican and the papers that are
boosting him probably do not know.
But that makes little difference.
Mr. Hoover is an impossibility as a
presidential candidate. He could not
carry any agricultural district in the
United States The farmers would
not support him. Hoover fixed the
price of the farmers' wheat at $2
per bushel and fixed the price of
flour, mill feed and other products
of wheat. He also fixed the amount
of wheat flour that people could use,
requiring them to use from one-fifth
to one-half wheat flour substitutes,
including almost everything
could be made into anything resemb
ling flour. The price of wheat and
flour were fixed by the food admin
istration and there was no appe
But Hoover and his food admini
stration could not, would not, or at
least did not fix any limit on the
prices to be charged for flour sub
stitutes. With corn selling for from
half to three-fifths as much as wheat,
corn flour sold for nearly double the
price of wheat flour and the people
'were compelled to use that or some
other substitute on which the profit
eers were making an enormous profit.
A farmer who was forced to sell his
wheat for $2 per bushel and buy flour
at 2.75 to $3.26 per sack and buy an
equal number of pounds of corn flour
or other substitutes for which he
would have to pay from $4 to $5,
could not conscientiously vote for Mr.
Hoover for president.
A man who was perfectly willing
that every dealer in food products
except the farmer who produced it,
should make enormous profits dur
ing the war, would not get much sup
port for president from the agricul
tural districts. If Hoover could fix
a positive and absolute limit to the
maximum prices for farm products
(wheat and live hogs) but could not
fix a price on anything else, he would
make a mighty poor president. We
want a man more versatile than Mr.
Hoover has shown himself to be.
"TO THE DAY."
The I. W. W. are following the dual
example of the Germans and the Bol
sheviki of Russia. They are planning
to overthrow the government and es
tablish anarchy under the nom-de
And they hav^set a date for the over
throw of the government, and, like
the Germans who had planned the
war they started and lost decades
before it actually burst upon the
world, they refer in their discussions
and their literature "to the day."
If the heads of the I. W. W. were
not solid ivory they could look back
and see how both of these countries
drank toasts "to the day" when she
would destroy the English fleet and
become master of the seas. The "day"
came and Germany hoisted a white
flag and surrendered her fleet with
out firing a shot, sneaking out like
cowards and turning the entire fleet
over to England and her allies.
The Russians tried to run a "soviet"
govei nment along the lines planned
by the I. W. W. and today tens of
thousands of Russians are starving,
there is no food, no work, no govern
ment. Armed mobs of cruel savages
plunder the country, killing and steal
ing and burning, while men and
women are begging to be shot to
avoid slow death by starvation.
What we need here is a vigilence j

"I have absolutely no criticism to
make of the administration of army
affairs on the other side," says Sen
ator* Wadsworth of New York upon
his return from France. "Remark
able things have been accomplished."
Yet should not the war administra
tion on this side receive some credit
for the brilliant success of the war
administration on the other side?
How can they be so segregated from
each other that the one deserves no
praise for what the other achieves ?
Had the war gone disastrously in
France, there would have been some
political crucifixions here at home.

well as blame, if the least justice is

Latah county is showing the proper
spirit in preparing for the greatest
campaign of road building in the
county's history. We need roads more
than alirmst anything else. As com
pared with Whitman county, Wash
ington, just across the state line,
Latah county is far behind in the
matter of good roads. Nothing will
add to the value of farm lands or
make farm life more endurable in
the winter months, than good roads
which will enable the farmers to come
good roads in the county would be
of great benefit to t every section and
the towns would be benefitted almost

Oregon, which has long been ac
cused of being the "moss-back" state,
has appropriated $10,000,000 for the
building of good roads The last leg
islature arranged for a bond issue of
$6,000,000 and the proposition carried
by a big majority at the general elec
tion. The present legislature has ar
ranged for another bond issue of
$4,000,000 for road building,

some of the moss for which it has
so long been noted.
that our food restrictions added much
to the provisions sent abroad. But
the official figures show that, while

In view of the end of the strike of
the marine workers in New York har
bor as the immediate consequence of
a radio message from Mr. Wilson, the
presidential office may be said to
function as well 3000 miles from home
as in Washington, D. C. Yet there
may still be some lawyer like Mr.
Wickersham, who can prove that this
thing is flagrantly unconstitutional.
