The place and time for the three conventions Point to efforts looking to an All around fusion on county offices. If these efforts succeed the county should certainly have its Best men for office.

The democrats populists and Silver republicans meet in respective conventions at Idaho Falls next monday. Candidates will be numerous. Some of them will be dictatorial domineering and will aim to run them All in their own interests. If the candidates get control they May run it to suit themselves. The delegates should go fore armed and fore warned against such a contingency. They should go determined upon nothing but the Best interests of the people and the county. If the a must fall let it fall upon the necks of self constituted candidates and not upon the necks of the people. The meeting of the three parties at the same time and place Means fusion a fusion of All and if this can be brought about for the Good of the people let it be done. Away with any county candidate who would throw a stumbling Block in the Way that he May ride into office on a horse of his own selection. An Impromptu Musicale. The most agreeable Surprise to our Young people during this september a Harvest Moon was the Impromptu Musicale by the Asylum orchestra wednesday evening. During the Day it was reported the orchestra would entertain the patients with some Choice selections in the evening and a number of our music Loving Young people attended. The program was Well selected and was made up principally of vocal and instrumental solos. The performance concluded with a chorus from the opera Bohemian girl in which a number of the employees appeared in costume. Altogether it was one of the most pleasant entertainments of the season. It is too Good to be kept from the Public and the Little company would meet with a flattering audience were it to repeat the performance at the Blackfoot opera House. Or. And mrs. Moore and the attendants made it exceedingly pleasant for All visitors present. Conventions at Pocatello. The three parties democrats populists and Silver republicans met in respective conventions at Pocatello thursday and after wrestling All Day with resolutions appointed committees to Confer together looking to a fusion of the three parties. After the appointment of the committees the conventions adjourned until Friday morning at 10 of clock. In the evening the committees met and went to work. Rumours say a Bolt May be looked for in the democratic ranks if the general fusion is not effected. Convention Call. The tenth annual convention of the woman a Christian Temperance Union of Idaho will Convene in the Baptist Church in Pocatello oct. 2d, 3d and 4th and 5th. An interesting program is prepared for every meeting of the session our friends Are cordially invited. Pres., mrs. R. Mitchell Sec a mrs. Eva Barton. Mckinley Republican convention the Mckinley republicans of Bingham county met in convention to Day Friday at noon. Hon. Rocky rounds was elected temporary chairman and James m. Stevens Secretary. Or. Rounds made a smooth conservative speech on taking the chair and urged the convention to nominate its very Best men for the legislative and county ticket. The usual committees were named and the convention took a recess to one of clock. Re assembling the reports of committees were received and adopted and the convention proceeded to the nomination of the ticket in executive session. Of ills there is a lamentable usage of the press and of partisans during election times and that is the Wanton outrageous abuse of the other fellow and the other Side. I have not seen any such abuse of Mckinley by the democratic press but the Northern Republican journals just teem with the vilest and most malicious slanders of Bryan and his platform. He is denounced and car toned As the Arch anarchist and re Pudia tor a tool of the Silver mines a babbling boy a sky scraper a bag of wind and the Punka of the Platte. I done to know what Punka Means but suppose it is some very bad thing like a polecat. His Madison Square speech which Ingalls said was a very great one is ridiculed As an abortion a Chestnut a miserable failure and they cartoon him As a Little Sophomore Schoolboy orator. This is very bad policy. The people of All parties know that Bryan is a very eloquent smart and sincere Man and the reaction comes when such slanders Are used against him. The jubilant buying tone of the Republican press reminds one of Goliath and David a and when the Philistine saw David he disdained him for he was but a youth and the Philistine cursed David by his gods and he said come to me and i will give thy flesh to the fowls of the air and the beasts of the a Bill Arp in Atlanta Constitution. What Are you going to do with your boy the question is one that must be answered without delay for it does not take a boy Long to become a Man. If you mean to educate him you must do it now. While you Are hesitating the opportune season May pass. When it is once gone it never returns. Next year May be too late. The idea of waiting till your circumstances Are easier is delusive. How do you know that your circumstances Are going to become easier it is better to Strain a Point than to run the risk of total failure in so important a matter can you give a Bright boy anything that will be Worth As much to him As a course in College Money May easily slip through his fingers but nothing can Rob him of mental discipline and stores of knowledge. Even if he does not prefer to become a scholar it May be your duty to insist on that policy. Parents Are presumed to know what is Best for their children in other respects and Why not in this a Nashville advocate. Some answers according to the Cologne Gazette paraffin is found to be an excellent remedy for Snake Poison. The paraffin Oil is worked thoroughly into the wound and then allowed to stand on it in a Pool or the bitten part poultice with paraffin. Jinks Dull place nothing going on to questions put at the recent teachers examination. Of the candidates for teachers certificates who recently took the examination before the county superintendent of schools 20 passed eight failed in part and seven failed altogether. The a civil government papers of the candidates disclose some very interesting Reading. One of the questions asked was As to the four principal political parties in the United states As their leading principles. One candidate answered briefly a a democrats republicans populists and a. P. another answered a Republican party High Tariff and reciprocity democratic party anything to win free Silver and free another candidate described the populists As a democrats one year and republicans the next at present they Are in favor of free in answer to the question As to what was meant by politics one candidate said a politics mean the ambition which people show in electing the proper persons who they think will do the Best in making Laws for the general welfare of the people and the another answer contained this a there seems to be a crisis approaching when there will be but two parties the free Silver party and the Gold Standard what is considered an original answer was that of the candidate who said a politics in Butte is office seeking but in its True sense it is the principal advocated by different organizations As to How the nation should be Miner.
