Northern Wyoming Herald Entered aa second class matter October 27, 1910, at the postofflce at Oody, Wyoming', under Act of Congress of March 3, 1879. 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 FROM THE CONSTITUTION OF WYOMING Governor—Qualifications of. No person shall be eli gible to the office of Governor unless he be a citizen of the United States and a qualified elector of the State, who has attained the age of thirty years, and who has resided five years next preceding the election within the State or territory, nor shall he be eligible to any other office during the term for which he was elected. DEMOCRATS GET FEET IN THE TROUGH Editor Baird of the Democratic News of Meeteetse is of the opinion that the federal building for Cody being held up by his party is because that party does not believe in “pork” and is pre venting needless expenditures of federal funds. Let us see what we will see. In th Public Buildings bill reported July 17, 1916 among many others appeared the following juicy slices of democratic pork for the South: Mt. Olive, North Carolina, $50,000, population 1071. Huntington, Tennessee, $25,000, population 1,112. Eminence, Kentucky, $40,000, population 1,274. Falmouth, Kentucky, $25,000, population 1,180. Editor Baird being a western man will have no difficulty in understanding that the proper method of flood control is a conser vation of water at the source of streams rather than at their mouths. To do this means the development of water power to turn the wheels of commerce. But where did his collegues spend their money which Editor Baird classes as “pork ?” We quote again under their special legislation : Flood control—California 5 */ 2 million. North 3 million. South 42 million. A nitrate plant which could have been more economically es tablished under the power at the Shoshone dam or a dozen other places where power is going to waste was not placed there, Mr. Baird. It was located at Muscle Shoals at a cost of Twenty Mil lion. The South got practically all of the Rivers and Harbors ap propriation, 42 million of it to be exact. Os course it must be admitted that the South is entitled to its share. It should have all that is coming to it and in return it should bear its share of the burden of government. When the country needed defense the North responded with 50.000 troops. How patriotic was the South? From North Carolina, the home of House leader and head of Navy Department—none. From Georgia, the home of the Senate leader—none. From Florida, the home of the chairman of Rivers and Har bors. and Public Buildings Committees—none. From Kentucky—none; from Tennessee—none; Arkansas— none; Mississippi, the home of chairman of Flood control—none. From Alabama, the home of the Underwood bill—none. Louisiana—soo. The final analysis, however, is on the actual amount of busi ness that will be conducted in the federal buildings erected rather than in the population of the towns in which they are located. The Herald believes that with the post office business rapidly growing in this to be the greatest tourist center of the west, with the administration of the Shoshone National forest, an office for the Reclamation service in the building and future administration of the Highline canal which will be upon us in a short time, the holding of federal court in this part of Wyoming saving the heavy cost of taking witnesses to Cheyenne, an office for U. S. land com missioner fully justifies the expenditure of public funds in the con struction of a building in Cody. It will add much to the development of this section anti when the rental of all of the businesses is calculated it is our opinion that it will pay larger dividends than the majority of federal in vestments. * * * HOMESTEAD BILL DID NOT PASS The 640-acre homestead bill was delayed till the eleventh hour, till it was too late to have senate amendments concurred in by the house, hence it was necessary for it to go over to the December session of Congress. Senator Myers of Montana, chairman of the committee on public lands in the senate, is of the opinion that it will be passed early in that session of congress, but no one can tell for a certainty what a legislative body will do till it is actually done. ♦ ♦ The bear stories that have gone out to the press of the country are not likely to stimulate any great interest in eastern people see ing this section of America first. The tearing to pieces of a man in the park makes good reading but it is not condu ive to increased tourist business. The time may come, and let us hope soon, when the Yellowstone park will be conducted for the benefit of the people and not as an asylum for grizzlies.

Such a plan has been in prospect for years but if the folks over there wouldn’t care for it the money can likely be used elsewhere. Still someone might holler “pork". 1 ♦ ♦ There’s the reclamation work of the west promoted and made possible by the Wyoming delegation.

Fat Lambs Rather Draggy—Not Much Sold Up Till Noon. Little Change in Sheep —Fat Ewe Sales Steady to Lower. Union Stock Yanis, South Omaha, Nebraska, September 19, 1916.—The week opened with the heaviest run of cattle so far this year, a total of 6»72 loads, about 17,500 head. Most of the receipts consisted largely of western range cattle, and there were fewer corn fed beeves than for several days. Supplies of cows and heifers were not large, and with a tolerably broad demand from both packers and outside butchers, the market was ac tive and prices were In about the same notches as toward the latter part of last week. Quotations on cattle: Good to choice beeves, $lO 000 10.85; fair to good beeves, $9.0009.76; conftnon to fair beeves. $6.7503.75; good to choice beifera, $6 7507.25; good to choice cows. $6.5007.00; fair to good cowb, $5.8506.40; cannurs and cut ters, $4 5005.75; veal calves. ss.ooo 11.00; bologna bulls, $5.2505 35; beef bulls, $6.0007.00. Both packers aiwl shippers started out buying their hogs at prices that v.ere steady to In spots I0c: higher. Two of the packers left the moat of their orders to be filled on the late trade, and when the other buyers got through they started In to repeat Sat. urday’s stunt of lowering prices on the finish Sellers, however, held on to most of their hogs and succeeded in cashing them at figures that were al most as good as early prices Bulk of the hogs sold at $lO «')0 10.7‘J, and a sprinkling of the best kinds as high as $10.90, while the tops readied $ll.OO The largest sheep and lamb run of the year to data was on hand Monday, when 173 cars, or about. 47.000 head were reported In. Owing to the large receipts a decline la fat lambs was Inevitable, although about 65% of the offerings were feeders, mo 1 many of the sellers priced their tops around a dime lower from the start This did not. tempt buyers, however, and up to noon not a load of killer lambs had been cashed. Quite a few strings of the best feeding lambs sold in good season, many bands going at $10,250 10.40.

The Primary Vote The result of the primary election was a great surprise and a disap pointment to the democratic mana gers. After Chairman Hopkins had sent out his edict to the faithful in all the counties of the state, and the democratic papers had advised their readers to write in the names of Mes srs. Kendrick and Clark, it was as tounding to them to find that Sena tor Clark’s vote exceeded Mr. Ken drick’s almost nine to one. It is learned that in one county the demo cratic judges even went so fur as to paste in the names of John B. Ken drick and J. D. Clark before they handed out the ballots to the voters. While this was entirely illegal *t will not be questioned because there were, no opposition candidates. Perhaps j DR. HARVEY W. WILEY TO VOTE FOR HUGHES He Says Wilson Has Failed to Enforce Pure Food Law. M I favor the election of Mr. Hughes to the Presidency for entirely differ ent reasons than those held by most i of his supporters. It Is not because of the Mexican policy nor the foreign policy of the Administration nor by reason of Its domestic policies. It Is because of the apparent Indifference j of the Administration of President Wilson to the cause of pure final and drugs. Practically all of the abuses which were Injected Into the Pure Food Law by the preceding Adminis trations are still In force. Benzoate of soda Is still regnant. The fumes of burning sulphur are inarching along undisturbed. There Is evidently a lull In the activities of the Administration of the law. A well-known beverage, dr dared by the Supreme Court misbrand ed and amenable to the Food Law has not been molested. No attempt has been made to enforce the law in regard to the bleaching of flour. The repeal of the mixed flour law. that splendid safeguard to the purity of our bread, bus been tacitly approved by tin Treasury Department. ‘‘Mr. Hughes in his activities on the Supreme Court has stood like a i stone wall for the proper Admlnistra i tlon of the Food Law. I believe hi* i election would see a radical change In the attitude of the government towards pure food and pure drugs, s<- vital to the welfare of our people For this reason, I sincerely hope thai Mr. Hughes may be chosen us oui • next President. “I should expert Mr. Hughes a* j President to have the same attltudi toward the pure fix*J and drug luu that he had a*s a Judge ou the bench and to appoint a secretary of agri , culture with subordinate officers win would be enthusiastic and earnest in the enforcement of the pure food law for the benefit of the physical, men tal and morul welfare of our people.” Congress, representing luu.OOO.on* i people, is not particularly dignified ii passing a law at the crack of th* ruilroud brotherhoods’ whip. I SURRENDER TO FORCE $ WOULD TEND TO 9 DISASTER. 8 “That kind of virus in our o life—surrender to force—would S bring us no end of disaster. If Q we let capitalists or working- 2 men, any interest, learn that the 3 way to get what is wanted it by 8 applying pressure and if we con- 3 tinue in that course for a few js 6 years, democracy will be a fall- m $ ure, and we might as well give q i up our form of government."— S J Mr. Hughes in His Speech at o Portland, Maine. S the most astounding result of the pri mary election was the vote in '•T.cri dan county, which gave Senator Mark 1,150 against 514 for Gov. Kendrick. The vote for Senator Clark was greater than the entire republican vote for governor in that county in 1914, which was 1,011. No special effort was made to get out the vote for republican senator ial and congressional candidates. A i Clark. The result has sent a chill - down their spinal columns. great effort was made by the demo- I cratic leaders and press to get the i rank and file of the democratic party * to vote for Gov.

The National Woman’s Party, convinced that the enfranchise ment of women is the paramount issue, pledges itself to use its u nited vote to secure the passage of the Susan B. Anthony amend ment, irrespective of the interests of any national political party; and pledges its unceasing opposition to all who oppose this amend ment. Resolutions Defining Election Policy Adopted at the Colorado Springs Conference, August 11, 19)6. FIRST RESOLUTION Whereas. The present administration under President Wil son and the Democratic party has persistently opposed the pas sage of a national suffrage amendment, and Whereas, All of the other national parties, either by their platform or through their candidates are pledged to the passage of a federal amendment enfranchising women, therefore be it Resolved, That the National Woman’s Party, so long as the opposition of the Democratic party continues, pledge itself to use its best efforts in the twelve states where women vote for Presi dent to defeat the Democratic candidate for President; and in the eleven states where women vote for members of Congress to de feat the candidates of the Democratic party for Congress. SECOND RESOLUTION Resolved, That we congratulate the Progressive, Prohibition and Socialist parties upon the definite stand which they have taken in their endorsement of suffrage for women by national action. THIRD RESOLUTION Resolved, That we commend the position of the Republican candidate for President, Charles Evans Hughes, for the unequivo cal stand which he has taken for human liberty by his endorse ment of suffrage for women by national action, and assure him of our appreciation of his statesmanlike position.

The explanation of this phenomena is simple, for the most of these ob jects conduct electricity so well that electricity induced on the earth is drawn up through them and dispersed into the atmosphere, thus dissipating the charge of electricity before it be comes strong enough to produce a flash. If a lightning stroke to one of these objects does occur, the mass of metal entering into its composition will usually conduct the current safe ly to the ground.
