Northern Wyoming Herald Entered as second class matter October 27, 1910, at the postoffice at Cody, Wyoming, under Act of Congress of March 3, 187° L. L. NEWTON, Editor and Publisher For President CHARLES EVANS HUGHES For Vice President ' CHARLES WARREN FAIRBANKS ! For U. S. Senator from Wyoming CLARENCE DON CLARK For U. S. Congressman from Wyoming FRANK WHEELER MONDELL PUSSYFOOTING PATRIOTS Wyoming democrats stand convicted of deliberate violation of the BDirit of the primary law. It has been common knowledge for months that Governor Kendrick would be the Democratic nominee for the United States, senate. In spite of his weak hearted denial that he would be a candi date it has been the understanding that he and John Clark would make the race for the two most important offices to be filled in Wyoming this fall. j By brow beating and intimidating other candidates they have held the nominations open and having failed to file their declara tion it will now be necessary to write the names of the candidates' on the ballots. By this method they hope to give the impression chat these two “partiots” have been “forced” to enter the race. But Wyoming people were not born yesterday and are fully advised as to the machine methods of the Democrats, so much so that they understand that this direct and deliberate evasion of the spirit of the primary law is only another indication of the ring that governs Wyoming—a machine that makes the Republican organ ization they used to howl about look like a toy cart. When the “martys” finally do come out the voters will be ready for them and will see to it that Clark and Mondell are re turned to Congress. +— + —+ HELP THE FAIRS One of the best ways to make a fair successful is to get the interest of the schools. This was well shown in Jewell county, Kansas, last year where 14 so-called farm, school and home festi vals were held under the auspicies of the farm bureau and the county agent. At these festivals the schools were urged to com pete against each other in exhibitions of corn, grains of all kinds, and in garden and orchard products. The exhibits were equal to many at county fairs. The rivalry between the various schools in these exhibits was great and much enthusiam and keen interest was aroused. In addition stock judging contests were held. When it came time to hold the annual farm, school and home festival at the country seat, the interest and enthusiasm were encountered everywhere throught the country as winners in local contests were represent ed in large numbers. In one day there was an attendance of ap proximately 8,000 persons at the festival at Mankato. This fest ival fair was so successful that this year the farmers are planning even a greater fair. ♦—» + — WOMAN’S PARTY O K’S HUGHES The Democratic congress has buried down deep in a commit tee pigeon hole the Mondell bill giving suffrage to women while the sufs have been pulling their hair in anxiety. Disappointed they have openly turned from the Democrats and denounced them far and wide as being responsible because they are in power. In response to the declaration of Hughes that he was in favor of suffrage Miss Ann H. Martin, chairman of the National Woman’s party wired him: “Your declaration for the National Woman’s suffrage amendment makes the women of America your tiebtor for your courage and statesmanship.” THE MAN who buys and reads his home paper demonstrates his patriotism and his in telligence by the act. The merchant who buys his printing from his home paper gives a practical demonstration of his belief in the policy of trading at home. This town is made up of two classes of people—those who DO and those who DON’T. Don’t be a "don’t.” The Northern Wyoming Herald NORTHERN WYOMING HERALD KEEP THE TOWN CLEAN A clean town attracts attention whenever and wherever it is seen. A dirty one catches the public eye in even less time. When the streets and alleys and yards and vacant lots in a town are clean and sanitary it bespeaks a like condition on the part of the residents with regard to their personal habits. The Lord loves a clean map or woman, and the devil worships j a dirty one. Which do you prefer? If each person in this town would use just a little more en ergy and thoughtfulness we could make this one of the cleanest spots in the country and our reputation would grow apace. Not only would we benefit thustly, but the health of the com munity would be vastly improved and the physical capacity of the people would be greatly increased. A clean man works with pleasure and with a definite object in in view. Generally he gets there. The dirty one labors from necessity only, has no ambition, and is the black eye that kills the town in the eyes of other people. Keep the town clean. -4 4 WE ARE BEHIND THE TIMES According to Logan Walter Page, director of the United States office of Publicßoads.eightypercentofourcommercial com modities : the things that we use in every day life—are hauled; at some state of their transportation from the producing center of consumption, over the public highways. The cost of hauling over these highways is about 28 cents per ton per mile in this country, while in France, where public highway improvement is at its best, tbe cost in onlv 10 cents per ton per mile. It costs a farmer in this country 1.6 more to haul a bushel of wheat 9 miles from his larm to the neighboring market than it does to haul it from New York to Liverpool, a distance of 3100 miles! What relation, then, has the matter of good roads to the high cost of living? Two hundred and fifty million dollars could be saved annually to the ! producer and the consumer by the maintenance of a uniform sys tem of good roads. ♦ 4 _ HOUX FOR GOVERNOR Along with the announcement that the Democrats would “de mand” that Governor Kendrick be a candidate for United States Senator in the vain hope to replace Senator Clarence D. dark, comes the rumor that Frank L. Houx, now secretary of state would be the candidate for the gubernatorial seat two years hence. With two years in which to get the practice and time to con struct the proper fences Frank L. would naturally want to make the race and win the place for himself. It is certainly a laudable ambition on his part and were it not for the fact that there are so many Republicans in Wyoming he would stand a pretty good show of being elected. *■ ♦ ♦ SHEEPMEN FOR HUGHES The American Sheep Breeder comes out flat and says it’s for Hughes. The reason is that Hughes is for the sheepman. Can any of you Park county fellows tell us one thing the Democratic party has ever done for the sheep industry ? Not only that but every time it has been in power it has plung ed its knife deep into your vitals. Sure thing. Democratic sheep men are mighty scarce in Wyo ming. ♦ ♦ ♦ ' If some of the former supporters of the primary law will now come forward with a plan to put it out of business w-e might for give them for the bum steer thev gave Wyoming. ♦ ♦ ♦ Some men are nominated under the primary system that , never could get on a ticket if the wishes of the people were rep ] esented. ■ 4-+—4 Some things like free trade and the direct primary may be all right in theory but they do not work out in actual practice. + 44 As far as our observation goes it looks to us as tho the prim ary law only brings out the fellow that wants office. * —4 —♦ The Democratic nartv believes in “America first,” at least in its policy of levying taxes on the people at home. WILSALL QUARTET LIKES CODY W. R. Vinacke, J. W. Liek, A. K. Cameron and Wesley Rampy, business men as Wilsall, Montana, came down the Cody way from Yellowstone park Sunday and liked the scenery so well decided to return the same way and return to Montana thru the north entrance. They regard the scenery along the eastern road far superior to anything in the park and are re j turning to Montana confirmed boost j ers for Wyoming scenery, j They report great interest in Mont- I ana for the Park to Park highawy wh : ch passes thru their town avd if all the raod boosters are of their type the road wil be successfully com pleted. HOW SITUATION MUST~BE MET The Editor and Publisher says: A year ago the Virginia publisher wa3 paying from two to two and three fourth cents per pound for his news print, according to the amount of his yearly purchase. Today it is impos sible to make a contract and the price ranpes from four to six cents per pound for immediate delivery.” The same condition is existing all over the country and the situation is being investigated by the Federal Trade commission. Some papers will not survive the strain, others will learn lessons that will help place the business on a sound footing. Perhaps the present crisis is one of those ill winds that will bring good to the publishers. The penny paper will go. The free space to all organizations which use the papers in order to save postage or work, will be clicin ated. Publishers will collect for all papers sent out. The merchant does not give away a paper of pins because the amount involved is small. The newspaper mush be placed on the same careful business basis.
