The loss cannot be told. The Farmers whose wheat advances 100 per cent Over the opening prices of will feel better after election than the Defeated candidates. If or. Gunn should be Defeated for Congress it will be chargeable to his own party men who want to go the Senate and it is now generally conceded that no populist will go the Senate. A private letter from a Well posted gentleman in Fremont writes the news that great enthusiasm is being manifested for senator Dubois. The political conditions in the counties of the state Are such that he will be the truest Patriot who votes for the Best men it matters not How they Are mixed in fusion. On account of some misunderstanding it is reported that no appointment was made for or. Steunenberg and Papain Gunn at Idaho Falls. What a the matter d. Lawford the largest dry goods retail merchant in st. Louis mo., has been arrested for discharging 12 salesmen for saying they would vote for Bryan and free Silver. The Law of the state makes such offences a felony. M. C. Senter cashier first National Bank Pocatello who has been visiting at his old Home in Michigan has been advised by physicians to Winter in Georgia. He will Start South in a few Days. Every Reader of the news should give a careful perusal of our Washington letter in another column. It is Fop c was the first Ker in from a gentleman in a position to know what he is writing about and who understands the situation As it is understood at the nations capital. Bingham county must Roll up a big majority for or. Storer candidate for state treasurer. She will give or. Stutenberg a big vote and the news wishes to see or. Storer get a a Bunting vote in the county. Or. Of Callaghan who was sent to the Penitentiary for life from this county in 1885, has filed an application for Pardon and it is generally believed the Board will Grant the Pardon.

During his stay in the City he delivered two interesting lectures to Well pleased audiences at the opera House. He also made several satisfactory Public examinations of Heads As Well As a Large number in private. Hon. J. W. Eden of Pocatello is canvassing with or. Borah nobody will question or. Edens democracy it is above question. He recognizes the authority of the National committee in state matters touching National affairs and knows that or. Walsh did not transcend his authority when he published his letter to Idaho democrats. An accommodating Justice. A Justice of the peace of Bingham county had occasion a Short time ago to pass judgment on an offender and fined him ten dollars. The offender not having the ready Cash the Justice accepted his note for 40 Days and sent him on his Way rejoicing. Hundreds of criminals would take whole car loads of fines on those conditions and think they had struck bargains. That Justice must be a candidate for re election. Vote for the Best Man. There can be no doubt but every Democrat in the state of Idaho who has studied the history of his party and who is familiar with the Workings of National and state committees knows that the one ranks the other and in All matters relating to National politics it is the duty of the state committee to look to the National committee for suggestions guidance and directions. No one will gainsay the truth of this statement. It has been so from the Days of the illustrious Jefferson to the present time it is so in the Republican party it was so in All the old parties of the past. The highest Type of party fealty is found in him who is in closest touch with the National committee. It is not surprising then that so Many of the rank and file of the democratic party accept Secretary Walsh a letter As proper directions for their guidance in this Campaign. They feel that they Are honorable released from the unholy Alliance in the matter of that notorious a legislative the democratic party of this state has something to look for beyond this Campaign. The history of democracy with its defeats and with its Brilliant victories Points to a life for the party beyond the coming election. It is not dependent on fusions for its existence or its Success. On the other hand the populist party has always done so. Its history says so. If it were not True Why do they bargain and fuse with republicans in the South and democrats in the North fusion Means the practical politics of office getting and spoils and nothing More and nothing less. The fusion tickets in the state have some Good men on them men who will make honest and worthy officials and its the patriotic duty of every voter to select from these and vote for the Best men As his Best judgment tells him they Are the Best. Parties differing like democrats populists and republicans cannot mix their principles in a fusion scheme fusion Only looks to offices and that voter serves his state Best who votes to fill those offices with the Best and Only the Best fitted men. Steunenberg Gunn meeting. The audience which greeted Hon. Frank Steunenberg and capt. Gunn at the court room thursday evening was not As Large As was expected or As lat be it would have been had it been known positively that they would reach Blackfoot in time for their meeting. These gentlemen were detained at Pocatello during the Day and the train bringing them in did not reach Blackfoot until after 7 00 p. M. However the commodious court room was comfortably filled and the speakers were Given a most respectful hearing. Or. W. E. Barnhart presided and called the meeting to order. Capt. Gunn the Peoples democratic nominee for Congress was the first speaker introduced and took up two hours of the evening. The capt. Went Over the Field of political history touching Here and there on the Sandy knolls and marshy places in the Quarter sections of the old parties and told How the democratic Quarter Section would soon be reclaimed by following populists methods and by using populist fertilizers for cultivation. The Captain was very free and generous in his praises of the democratic party and claimed that it was coming rapidly to the measures he advocated in his canvasses in Idaho four and two years ago. The Chicago platform had adopted four or five of his planks of other Days. Altogether the Captain tried to make it pleasant and agreeable for his hearers and was very free from personal allusions or references. Or. Steunenberg was next introduced and was greeted with a Hearty round of applause. His speech owing to the lateness of the hour was very Brief and More in the nature of an explanation than a discussion of any Issue of the Campaign. Our Blackfoot people regretted the detention of the speakers at Pocatello they wanted to become better acquainted with their next governor at whose nomination they were so Well pleased and in whose successful administration of state affairs they have in Advance so much Confidence. These gentlemen went North from Blackfoot to Basalt and Idaho Falls. Big jump in wheat. Extraordinary demand a Boon to California Farmers.

If Grain continues to Advance the California Farmers will enjoy a season of unexampled Prosperity. From Secretary Walshus tetter. Voicing the sentiments of the democratic National committee they wish it distinctly understood that they repudiate the so called agreement entered into by the democrats and populists in their recent state convention so far As the democrats Are concerned in relation to the election of a United states senator in place of senator Dubois. And further that the democrats of Idaho Are released by the National committee from the compliance with the terms of said agreement. The National democratic committee desires his return and desires a most generous recognition on the part of the local democrats of Silver republicans of Idaho who Are the associates of senator Dubois.

We copy from it this compliment to or. Durrans As it appeared in its last Issue Rexburg is to be congrats used by the selection of or. A i. Durr none of our esteemed townsman As a nominee for Secretary of state. But or. Durrans congratulation would be More Harty if he had not received the nomination on a ticket that is generally regarded through the state As a joke. It cannot be reasonably supposed that any candidate on the a Silver Republican ticket can be elected As they Are Mere tools together with nominees or similar county tickets to be traded bartered and exchanged by Fred Dubois in the interests of legislative nominees who Are Friendly to himself.

The news stated weeks ago that the nomination of the Steunenberg tickets would bring about this end and that would be one of the greatest victories Ever won in the state. There is a Good Deal in or. Bryan to command the admiration of those who oppose his candidacy and to justify the enthusiastic support of those who accept his financial scheme for the alleviation of Industrial conditions.
