'WHERE IGNORANCE IS BLISS.'
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
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
names to appear on
ballot or ticket to be voted upon in
the said city election:
"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, -,
"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."
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.

While Paris sends out predictions
that the Germans will accept the

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
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.
