The Star-Mirror was severely crit icised by some of the partizans of certain candidates on the city ticket for its publication of the statement yesterday that Judge Nelson, of the probate court had issued an order to Clerk Strong to print the names of the "Independent" candidates on the official ballot. This criticism comes, does most criticism, from ignor ance of the facts. The critics had not read the order and the Star-Mir ror writer had, which, naturally, gave the latter some advantage in know ing what the order contained. For the instruction of those who are to criticise and condemn with as prone out knowing the facts we herewith publish the order, omitting the non ■essential parts, setting forth why the order is issued. The order, as issued by Judge Nelson, follows: "You are, therefore, hereby order ed, immediately upon the receipt of this order, and the copy of the affi davit hereunto annexed, to cause the following additional matter and official names to appear on ballot or ticket to be voted upon in the said city election: "Independent Ticket. "Mayor, J. G. Gibson. "City clerk and ex-officio police judge, J. R. Strong. "Councilmen, first ward, Mickey, Geo. E. Horton. "Councilmen, second ward, George Stewart, Ed Collins. "Councilmen, third ward, -, Carl Anderson. "Or that you show cause before this court, at the courtroom thereof in the court house in the city of Mos cow, Idaho, on the 18th day of April, 1919, at 2 o'clock p. m., why you have not done so." H .B. This is a verbatim copy of the or der issued by Judge Nelson. It com mands the printing of the names on the official ballot and provides a pen alty for failure to obey the order of the court. Unless the order is obeyed or good and sufficient reason shown for disobeying it, the court can pun ish for contempt, the close of the order does not invali date the order. The report published in The Star-Mirror was absolutely correct as the critics would have dis covered had they read the order. The alternative at fa kj, Ra WILL GERMANY SUBMIT TO TERMS? While Paris sends out predictions that the Germans will accept the terms of peace within two weeks af ter they are presented by the allies, Czech delegates report that Germany is secretly drilling a new army and gathering arms and secret stores in preparation for a renewal of the war. German political leaders of the last ditch kind say that they will never the Saar valley, will never give up yield the Rhine province as a neutral and will never pay the indem ity which they expect the allies to They openly threaten Europe zone n exact. with a flood of bolshevism if they should be driven to extremities, and some of them talk of flatly rejecting the peate terms and defying the al lies to do their worst. We all know that German mili tarists are liars and not skillful bluf fers, therefore we may discount what they say, and what they say they have done, very liberally. Even then • the facts look ugly enough. The cen tral government maintains its author ity in the heart of the country by martial law, is shaky in the coast cities and is utterly powerless in Ba If it should accept the terms, varia. it may not be able to execute them in all the states. If it should decide neither to accept nor reject them, it fresh outbreak of bolshev may use a ism as an decide. If it should reject them flatly it may rely on the new army which Hindenburg is drilling and on the ac tivity of bolshevist agents in the al lied countries to make its defiance good—Portland Oregonian. explanation of inability to LLOYD GEORGE WINS AGAIN. Premier Lloyd George, the abtest man Great Britain has produced in a century, has again won over his ! critics of small calibre, who are ut I terly unable to cope with him in any j way, but when he is absent from i England they "flare forth" in num j bers and with blatent shouts de ; nounce the premier who has England on an even keel during the most trying times of her history. All Lloyd George needs do is to return to England and deliver one of his masterly addresses, to disrupt the critics and cause the common people to flock to his banner. His speech in parliament Tuesday was a masterly one, and left his critics and defamers without a single argument. The peo ple have expressed their confidence in the premier again and England is again quiet. It is one of the easiest things in the world to find fault with and criticise a great man, but to of fer improvements on his work is quite another thing. Pa TE3 »a The letters of Hon.
